Shukra-6 typically cannot resolve the pre-incarnationally planned imbalance-seeking-a-remedy of social, familial, marital-sexual, financial, mental, physical-health, and even spiritual relationships in the present lifetime.
Rather, Shukra-6 tries to beautify, smooth, decorate, ornament, and impose a cosmetically attractive appearance of superficial harmony upon the underlying ailments.
Attraction to physicians, medical environments, and medical treatments.
The pleasant and diplomatic style of Shukra-6 may temporarily convince others that the underlying animosity, addiction, poverty, servitude, or disease has been repaired, but lacking the fundamental and inescapable requirement that graha in 6 must choose to "serve or suffer" Shukra-6 with its natural taste for pleasures tends very much to suffer.
Naturally other graha yuti Shukra may alter this predisposition.

Partnerships are based in service work. Male meets the wife in the workplace, medical clinic, or service ministry.

Examples: Public Figures
Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activistElizabeth Taylor yuti Rahu * Rahu-amplified uttama Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra
Kalatra-karaka Shukra indicates women who are not mother, not mother-figures. Chandra = mother-karaka; Shukra are those situated in roles of partner-mate, sister-cousin, female neighbor or coworker.
in a husbandly nativity, the wife becomes a focus of conflict or the wife is beset by illness. For the wifely-companion herself, the terms of the marriage contract (Shukra promise, contract) may be rife with disagreement even if the peer-partner is a pleasant person.
Feminine-figures, treasurers, collectors, pleasure-providers who would be expected to behave in a trustworthy fashion such as bankers, vintners, food hoarders, storage vendors, peers and partners of any-gender betray the trust. Instead they may become devious exploiters, polluted in their actions, and possibly criminal in their behavior.
Corrupt or unbalanced counsel from peer-female, wife, sister, maternal aunt or paternal aunt, female counterpart, women in professional advice-giving roles. Shukra activates conditions of the contract thus Shukra does not signify mother nor grandmother. Mothers are the unconditional-lover givers of Chandra.
Positive implications: the peer-partner may serve as a health-care worker, criminal attorney or social worker. The peer-female such as sister-aunt-cousin or schoolmate, neighbor, co-worker may be dedicated to a ministry of service.
Shukra-6 is Typically, an indicator of some type of sensual addiction.
Conditions of behavioral addiction are pleasurable but often expensive. The behavior potentially involves toxic substances such as alcohol, tobacco, opium, et-cetera; or perhaps an unbalanced sensual relationships with servants, underclass persons, or animals.
Sister, aunt, peer-female may identify as a victim, sister may experience ailment, broken trust, exploitation, or peer-partner in servitude.
For the husband, the first wife may feature attachment to the narrative of the victim-personality. Peer females in the life-script tend to be accusing, blaming, or made toxic via accusation or addiction.
GAINS and LOSSES from DIVORCE = depends on 11th-from-6 (bandhusthana) + strong forces draining conflict out of 6 (sukhagraha in 5)
The famed 20th century dramatist and fashion-model Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor realized both losses and gains from her seven divorces. (8 marriages, once widowed, married 1 husband twice)
Typically Shukra-6 indicates a fairly low accumulation of material wealth since Shukra the Arranger who regulates the material-spiritual proportions is characteristically out of balance. The agency of low material accumulation is often a preference from immediate pleasure versus longer term savings behaviors.
Spends money [Shukra] on:
exploitive relationships, particularly but not exclusively with women
Tendency toward imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the spending habits:
Shukra in 6 indicates a person who spends luxuriously but disproportionately, on animals and servants - often with on Sthana -pets, veterinary bills, rescue animals, keeping horses et-cetera.
Luxurious pleasures via service.
Pet Animals, Wild Animals
Sensitive to welfare of all animals wild and tame. Loves pet animals and is loved by them in return.
May have a better experience of relationship with animals than with humans.
Marriage = Shukra in bhava-6
Not a helpful position for marriage, because the marriage-karaka Shukra enters the Sthana of the dissolution of agreements. Male tendency toward dalliance with female underlings. Similar to [nīcha] Shukra-Kanya. Feminine Nativities may have affectionate relationship with servants.
One may experience exploitation in the marriage of feel victimized. The couple habitually enter into arguments. Marriage alliance may seem like a state of perpetual conflict in which one can never win and may only accede to the reality of it.
Shukra in bhava-6 reduces the natural harmony in marriage, and contributes to argumentative, litigious, distrusting, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, or addictive behaviors.
Tastes, preferences, Gifts
Selecting a gift for the native with Shukra in 6?
These folk enjoy pleasures of toxins-medicines, clear and detailed argumentation, servitude.
Accouterments of the imbalance-loving life, such as gracious appointments for the medicine kit or other luxurious items of art and music which enhance the refinement of one's understanding of disagreement, disability, or disease, will be much appreciated gifts.
Consider gifting a book on strategies for litigation , medical treatment manuals or tickets to a medical practice conference, care of animals, or practical tools for clinical service in any of the helping professions.
victimization [being eaten]
When Shukra is very poorly disposed vis-à-vis both radix lagna and Chandra lagna, in 6 can indicate that the native is a victim of sex abuse or sexual excess, involvement in sex trafficking, prostitution, drug/alcohol addict, or medical ailment related to sugar (diabetes).
In the nativity of a husbandly-companion
Often, a husband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as a ministry of service offered to those in need, a laboring workplace, a place of servitude or unfair employment, a location for remedies and drugs, a loan-making environment, a place of litigation, accusations or complaints, a place of pollution or crime, or a medical clinic (not a hospitalagnesha-1 2 but rather an ambulatory clinic-6).
The life-partner's identification with the working classes is an important value [Shukra] for the husband. The life-partner's ability to work in sustained conflict situations may form the basis of the marriage.
The husband nativity may be attracted to life-partners who perform ministries of service particularly in medicine or military or criminal justice. The life partner may be born into the service classes such as slavesor historic service castes.
Shukra-6 benefits from a restraining drishti of Shani , but Shukra-6 is overly energized by influence of Mangala or Surya.
Should Shukra-6 be overheated by Ravi or Kuja, the wife may be frequently in the sights of accusers or litigators.
Influence of Shani tends to grant social pragmatism: she may know the :serve or suffer" rule [Shani] well enough to choose the service-ministry option. The wife may manage social conflict via her profession. The key word here is manage, not resolve. Graha in 6 manifest conflicts embedded in the subconscious during parallel life events, and these conflicts will replay until the native appreciates the essential value [Shukra] of service in human life.
For the male, positive influence of Shani grants him affinity for professionalization in medicine, law, or social welfare agencies. Negative overheating by Kuja or Ravi, or criminalization via Rahu, may suggest that he still lacks consciousness needed to accept unbalanced conditions as essential venues of pre-incarnationally planned expression, and hje could retreat into addictions to compensate for his wife's involvement in her workplace service duties.
Shukra represents the wife for a man, while Guru and Shani represent the husband for a woman. For a male, the wife shares one's same ministry of service Or she is a servant . One is often Addicted to Work.
In a masculine nativity, the wife or the beautiful love-partner (who need not be a woman, but must be perceived as beautiful) will hail from the underclass, working class, or the service-ministry class.
In a feminine nativity
The feminine-figure experiences considerable inner argumentation regarding her attractiveness, and may resort to exploitive behaviors in order to prove her beauty.
Prone to sexually-transmitted illness. Luxurious pleasures via conflict and argument. Attraction to those who produce and contain conflict (police, physician, attorney, etc.)
Cycle of attraction to partners who are prone to conflict, then breakdown of the partnership, then re-attraction to the same argument with a new partner. Often multiple marriages; often much worsened by drug-alcohol issues.
As always, much depends on Shukra's domains and tenants.
Characteristics of the Environment where husband meets the wife(s):
In the workplace , often in the role of servant, or employee, or physician - in the medical clinic or drug setting.
Although a wife's nativity generally shows the character of her husband via Guru, if Guru is involved with Shukra via rulership or drishti then Shukra may also influence her husbands.
Recently this couple presented: she with Shukra-6 and he with Shukra-7. The couple met at the"rehearsal dinner" preceding the wedding of mutual friends, some forty years ago.
Concepts of debt and repayment (old model from Kali Yuga)
When Shukra occupies the maha-dushtamsha, considerable Akashic memory patterning regarding redemption, reimbursement, or repayment = on schedule in regard to alliance-agreement, diplomatic, and contract-making activities.
Partnerships both personal and professional tend to be exploitive.
Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of brokering, negotiating, marrying, and chronically-rebalancing environments in order to burn off the pre-incarnationally planned ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this legalistic business of finding and keeping agreement with others.
A broken yoke
In matters of 6, particularly when 6 is inhabited by graha, the native does most of the work in partnerships. The Other has a pre-incarnationally planned script to run away with most of the energy of what should be (according to social dicta) jointly agreed contracts.
Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet partner-confirmation and social-approval of the true importance of services (6) rendered will rarely flow back in.
Lower expectations = better health
As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), disputes, treachery, broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's own spouse * especially wife for males * any sort of money * especially collections of objects such as animal herds, art collections, stored food, bank accounts; and enjoyment of luxuries in life.
Even if the entitlement or acquisition levels are materially quite high, matters of delicious food and drink, artistic balance, design, beautification, and ornaments become problematic, as the native gives more than one receives .
One's own marital environment is also affected by the script. Exploitation and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy = effected by partners who are mentally, physically, socially, or financially imbalanced.
The key to mental-social (Budha-6-Shukra) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for emotional investment from the partners, whether on the job or at home.
No matter how pleasantly accommodating [Shukra] beautiful or financially privileged [Shukra] or artistically talented [Shukra] one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's deal-making, negotiating diplomacy are not intended to acknowledge the gift.
Bhava-6 is a toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized and often warlike environment full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.
it is unrealistic to expect validation 7 from the behaviors produced by karaka-graha in 6
Naturally, when Shukra the balancer is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the behavior of the life-partner, as well as a rather chronic dickering or wheeler-dealer role within any paired union. For a man the homework-problem is most acute WRT his wife and for a woman the problem is most acute re; her female peers.
It makes sense to live in a way that does not require complex marital communications, that does not build unsustainable expectations of joint agreements and that self-honors one's extensive but unacknowledged behavior of making gracious social arrangements which benefit others far more than oneself.
It is the nature of the maha-dushtamsha that for the native with harmonious Shukra in 6, the more one gives, the more 'broken others' will take. There is no opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory interpersonal or financial contracts.
Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the yuvati-pati-7 is strong. However, the marriage and life-union relationships as well as most pleasure-giving arrangements are corrupted in this life.
Promises especially promises related to money are rarely fulfilled as expected.
For a purpose!
Addictions, often leading to health imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and economically motivated polarizing catalysis due to 11th"income" 6th from Shukra. Alcoholism. Sugar malfunctions, such as diabetes. Kidney, pancreatic and endocrine illness.
Broadly, unexpressed arguments in the mental and astral bodies may percolate down into the gross realm of the physical body. When materially manifest, unresolved inner argumentation may erupt into illnesses (6) of the paired organs [Shukra] throughout the body.
Both genders experience attraction to problematic, argumentative women.
bhava-6 as 3rd-from-4th = siblings of the mother.
Shukra in 6 = mother's sisters,
One may feel victimized or wronged by the spouse or lover, by addictions , by pleasures, by love-making and luxury, by women of all types, by finery, by music, art, wines and sweets, by the mouth, the jaw, the teeth, the kidneys and adrenal glands.
For males, chronic illness or chronic psychological dissatisfaction of the first wife
Jealousy (6) of others wealth [Shukra] may lead to a tendency to misappropriate or steal items related to beauty, art and music, sweets and sugars, liquors and drugs, jewelry and ornaments, sensual pleasures, and the luxurious or sensual possessions of women.
shad-ashtaka 6-8 angles from Shukra = trouble areas for alliances
adversarial, conflicted 6th from Shukra-6 = vriddhi bhava-11
shocking, secret 8th from Shukra-6 = tanu bhava-1
Shukra in bhava-6/Mithuna = addictions
especially those which impact the breathing (lungs, Mithuna) and gesturing (hands, Mithuna) apparatus, especially diseases of the lungs (Mithuna).
QUOTATION Das / Behari comments on Shukra-6
"Venus creates problems when placed in the Sixth.
Although under its influence you learn to unfold your capacities by associating with different types of people, these associations create social and personal difficulties for you.
You learn spiritual lessons with great difficulty but develops a sense of detachment after much physical, financial and moral suffering.
Spouses do not desire you and you have no desire for them;
You have many strong and powerful enemies; excessive expenditures, leading to poverty and debt. Much mental torture.
You have to face endless invincible enemies;
constant liquidation of financial wealth; unsuccessful in the best organized trade.
Suffers through ailments. Vain, dull, penniless, timid, bad company, quarrelsome, disrespect for father, trouble through all sources.
Fond of dance-music, victor and destroyer. Unpopular. You may come from a high family, learned, discreet and well-educated."
