Shukra in bhava-2 * contributes to the perception that one's family of origin is musical, artistic, and luxury-seeking. The family lineage may contain musicians, perfumers, vintners, refiners, bankers, traders, singers, or treasure-collectors. The vocabulary of values, finance, design, and diplomacy may be a salient feature of the family identity.

Often a fine orator, suave and balanced.

Admires the beauty of natural objects, such as animals, fruits, flowers, shells, stones, seeds, and every variety of landscape.

Attractive face, mouth, and teeth.

If Shukra is associated with more structured graha like Shani or the karmesha-10 , one may be attracted to professions such as architecture, design, dentistry, hair-styling, or facial surgery.

If Shani or Budha are associated with Shukra-2, one may study finance, conservation economics, storage, and banking.

Attracted to fine music, fine arts, wealth, luxury, esp. wealthy and sensual women. Loves the fields and the forests (natural territory of Vrishabha [svakshetra] ) as well as their products such as fine oils and perfumes. A lover of fine qualities of material objects; a connoisseur of some special delicacy. (Character of the delicacy is indicated by the rashi.)

In the nativity of a husband with Shukra-2, aesthetic preference for a life-partner who displays qualities such as

  • appreciates the value of history and language in human culture
  • committed to perpetuating the man's lineage
  • has well-developed aesthetic tastes
  • produces or owns wealth and manages it well


In the husband-role nativity, second wifely-companion may be notably beautiful or possessed of sensual value. The life-partner is typically wealthy and enjoys shared pleasures with financially privileged female friends and relatives particularly sisters.

  • Value comes from the voice, the hair, the teeth and mouth, the knowledge-base, and the family history.

The Wife, the Speech, the History, the Debates, the Treasury

In a wifely nativity, Shukra-2 indicates a predisposition to appreciate within oneself those values and environments that contain

knowledge of traditional values and ability to attract those values magnetically to oneself, generally via the family lineage

  • herds, hoards

Often, a husband meets the wifely life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as a traditional family gathering (kutumbha-2), with the advocacy or negotiation [Shukra] of a member of his family, an environment of story-telling, speech or song, or in context of the study of history, languages, accumulated wealth, or practicing the arts of storage such as animal husbandry, genetic cataloging, banking, database arts, collected values, seed preservation, historic architecture, natural conservation, et-cetera.

The life-partner's ability to keep historic traditions is important to the native. The life-partner's treasuries of capital wealth or knowledge may form the basis of the marriage. Similarly, face-hair-voice-mouth especially the virtue of singing or speaking may form of the core of marital attraction * akarshana *.

shad-ashtaka 6-8 angles from Shukra = polarizing catalysis areas for alliances

  • relatively little agreement in 6th-from;

    potentially illness and conflict

  • secrecy in 8th-from , and potentially catastrophic shock

Suhukra-2 = some peculiar disabilities. Kalatra bhava is itself 6th-from-Shukra , suggesting that a legal marriage contract is itself adversarial to Shukra's agenda of harmony, pleasure, treasure, and beauty.The terms of the marriage contract, particularly the service and exclusivity expectations, often create a sense of exploitation and unfairness.

8th-from Shukra = dharma bhava, producing an anti-philosophical and often anti-religious undercurrent due to rejection of sanctimonious priests and other dogmatists who would try to control the life force urge of one's mating behaviors. The father and patriarchal beliefs often form the catalyst for forced, sudden changes.

  • promise, compromise; pledge, oath, swear, answer, decide, decisions; Balance, Harmony, Relationship, Mutual Regard, Design; Marriage, partnerships: terms of contract

shocking, secret 8th from Shukra-2 = dharma-bhava-9

  • Papa, Pitru, Pulpit, Public Ritual, Piety, Patriarchy, Paternalism, Proselyte, Presbyter, Professor, Philosophy, Perfect Truth

  • wisdom teaching, worship, temples, universities, sacred places, priesthood, religious learning, ritual communication between human and divine, beliefs, faith, ceremony, sacred knowledge, sacred texts; sangha (sangiti, the reciters) = faith community;

    dharmasthana = privilege to travel and learn Philosophical Wisdom and Religious Studies

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari Shukra-2
