Excess of condiments deadens the taste.

He who possesses moderation is lasting and enduring.

Continuing to fill a pail after it is full, the water will be wasted.

Continuing to grind an axe after it is sharp, will wear it away.

Excess of light blinds the eye.

Excess of sound deafens the ear.

Too much is always a curse, most of all in wealth.

Shukra in bhava-7 = equity, peerage * paréage, harmonious relationships

interpersonal values, contractual trust, equitable arrangements

preference for equal, balanced, negotiable, bargained relationships

Luxurious pleasures via balanced and gracious Partnership, Negotiations, Contracts and Agreements

Enjoys advising others

Appreciates the values of diplomacy and fairness

Shukra-7 = generally pleasant looking with balanced physical features, due to Shukra drishti upon the radix lagna.

Similar to Shukra-2, may have attractive eyes.

feminine partner assists as an advocate and proxy. She helps in forming agreements and arranging contractual, mutual-interest unions.

Shukra-Vrishabha or Shukra-Tula or Shukra-Meena = Too Much Mate * karako bhavo nashto

= powerlessness, if Shukra is too strong.

The sensuality and wealth-focus of marriage is powerfully distracting.

The partner's own agency, behaviors and personality may have inordinate influence upon the marriage agreement itself.

The spouse, despite appearances = rather completely in control of the marriage.


  • Shukra = karaka for agreements and bargaining.

  • Shukra = karaka for relationships of every variety.

Shukra-7 certainly supports the career in 10th-from-10th. The partner for either gender but specifically the wife for a male may be a significant asset in career advance via the partner's ability to form career-enhancing relationships with others involved in one's line of professional work (10) .

Traditionally, the wife of a male who enjoys Shukra-7 = special inclination to form personal, aesthetically pleasurable relationships with the ladies attached to the instrumentally important men in her husband's profession.

For either gender, Shukra-7 is an exceptionally beneficial placement for political careers for which strategic social entertaining [Shukra] and diplomatic relations [Shukra] are essential to career ascendance.

  • existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre = career supported by professional mention from his equal partner Second Sex 1908-1986 Simone de Beauvoir

Marriage, Money, Mutuality

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln was said to have been often overwhelmed by his luxury-spending wife [7]

  • Mary Todd's household management style was over-the-top. She favored extravagant decor and lush entertainments due to Guru-yuti-Shukra [uchcha] [7]. Lincoln judge her over-spending to be ostentatious and potentially bankrupting.

  • However, Mary's businessman father subsidized her affluent lifestyle, and Abe did nothing to stop Mary's all-night dance parties, silk dresses, or all-night discussion parlors which brought so many people into their home in Springfield, Illinois.

  • Mary's emotionally dysregulated excesses were not matched to AL's own rough-hewn style. Yet he fully acknowledged that Mary's musical [Shukra] entertainments left a favorable impression on those who had been luxuriously wined-and-dined.

  • Rulers of 2 + 4 + 7 + 9 in the marriage-bhava.

Spends money [Shukra] on

  • harmony-inducing items, gifts for the lover

  • musical and artistic instruments (painting or sculpting supplies, guitar strings, etc.)

  • services of match-makers, go-betweens, deal-makers, and attorneys

  • Other expenses which promote relationships, contracts, deals, and agreements

Pleasure in Vehicles, Housing and Schooling * Shukra 4th-from-4th

In the masculine nativity, not normally favorable for marriage when Shukra = svakshetra. Often the wife is a professional maker of agreements.

for masculine nativity, the first life-partner = pretty and pale-complected (relative to the gene pool), per Sweet Shukra's rashi.

In a feminine nativity, gives a lovely partner (of any gender) who has strong aesthetic qualities, e.g. the partner is a diplomat, designer, artist or musician. The feminine nativity loves to match and pair people and things, always seeking harmony; taking pleasure to re-arrange and bargain for new agreements. She may have excellent aesthetic or arrangement skills, or abilities in commercial negotiation.

  • Naturally, drishti from uncomfortable graha can alter this pleasant outcome.

  • Drishti from Shani may add fearfulness, miserliness, and scarcity thinking; also Shani adds capacity to act as a pairing agent in large organizations.

  • Drishti from Rahu may cause sensual excesses with Ketu, Shukra in 7 becomes eccentric, wandering in search of pleasures but never satisfied.

  • Drishti from Mangala is intensely sexualizing.

  • Add drishti from Surya, and the female may become overly concerned with her ability to attract attention.

Shukra-7 for female = native enjoys creating and re-balancing contractual relationships, but this is not itself a threat to her marriage if there is a professional outlet for this love of constantly balancing the scales . For the wifely-companion's overall marriage prognosis, see Guru and Shani.

Shukra/7 in the masculine nativity karako bhavo nashto gives too much acquisitive, sensualizing, or negotiating energy to the spouse.

She is prone to over-enjoy the pleasures of material luxury. Ironically, she may seem insatiable even with the karaka for satisfaction = Shukra = so prominent in the otherwise dignified marriage Sthana .

Often, a husband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as bargaining, deal-making, arrangement, crafting of trust and troth, seeking terms of agreement, settlement after disagreement, balancing, harmonizing, match-making, or legal negotiation. The initial meeting may be arranged by advocates. The couple often live in carefully constructed harmonious arrangement stabilized (4th-from-4th) by equitable terms of the agreement.

Luxurious (Shukra-Laxmi) wealth may be rendered through contracts and negotiations. masculine nativity is attracted to women who are attorneys, negotiators, mediators, facilitators, brokers, go-betweens, and contract-makers. Affinity for the attorney's profession due to its daily practice of seeking agreement. Enjoys making deals. If the wife is not a licensed lawyer she practices the same skills regardless.

Shukra-yuti-Ketu-7 suggests that the life partner may be a gracious deal-maker but may lack a sense of purpose in doing so. Shukra-yuti-Rahu, an exotic wife, often very beautiful but prey to the compliments of those who wish to seduce her.


monetary wealth comes from marriage, normally via the direct involvement of the spouse. End of marriage is often the end of the money.

Hora Sara,

  • Ch. 25, Shloka 40

"A lucky and happy husband is got by a female who has Venus

  • in its own Sthana

  • in the 7th Sthana

  • or in the 7th amsha."

Characteristics of the Environment where ones meets the life-partner(s):

  • balancing and harmonizing

  • gracious design and ornamentation

  • political diplomacy, embassy

  • match-making, marriage broker, yenta

  • law-courts and legal matters

  • consulting and counseling

  • attorneys and advisors

  • bargaining and negotiations

  • financial brokerage, commercial middleman

  • alliance-creation, deals

  • mother's childhood home

  • auspice of maternal grandmother

In a masculine nativity, the man is attracted to women who can bargain, deal, and negotiate."Getting a good deal" is a valued skill which causes the man with Shukra-7 to feel pleasure in the company of the woman who can do it well.

Typically, the native with Shukra-7 meets the life partner in a diplomatic setting, often an arranged meeting, which is intended to begin the bargaining process. Can be an arranged meeting data or a benevolent pairing by a mutual friend or the family-sponsored first meeting of a matrimonial negotiation.

The implicit or explicit purpose of the first meeting is specifically to assess the partner's credentials and trustworthiness, for contractual union.

  • 300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika B.V. Raman enjoyed a marriage arranged by his grandfather, almost entirely without consultation to the native .

  • As recorded in My Experiences in Astrology , Shri Raman's estimable wife Rajeswari was 12 and he was 18 upon the occasion of their marriage, which was negotiated according to the proper folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of the place and the time.

  • They enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership, due in part to the wife's inclination to support and promote the husband's career. Shukra-7-Simha is a capable harmonizer but not too strong.

Attractive and sweet natured spouse with advanced social skills. Barring uncomfortable drishti to lagna, Shukra's drishti from 7 onto bhava-1 makes the native look attractive, too.

When Shukra is strong in yuvati sthana, karako bhavo nashto = "too much of a good thing", applies.

Emphasis on material pleasures in marriage and business partnerships. The ephemeral sweetness of Shukra tends to deprive the relationship of depth and stability. Yet this spouse is definitely an asset for business entertaining and public socializing. Superb karaka for the"two person career" in which the diplomatic, harmonizing spouse plays a key but not dominating role.

Especially helpful for career of male;

in fact, without the spouse it would be fair to say that a male with Shukra-7 cannot have a career to speak of. Marriage improves the public life and reputation.

  • 300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika B.V. Raman

Love of human company, fine dining, parties, harmonious design, luxury travel and seeking out new pleasure experiences. Favorable for the sexual aspect of marriage, although this channel too tends to lack depth.

In business, good for trading in women's articles, wine, luxury goods. Also good for having a female business partner, whether the native is male or female. Native may be trapped in a pleasure cycle, unable to detect non-sensual values in relationship. Karaka for multiple marriages.

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

  • relatively little agreement in 6th-from;

    potentially illness and conflict

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

what seems "unfair" in the relationship:

Hotels, bedrooms, invisible affairs, sanctuary space, enclosures, long sojourn in distant lands, dreams, Sleep, dissolution of identity, dematerialization, delusion, withdrawal, loss, forgiveness, release, other worlds, trails and paths, crossings and tunnels , in-utero and the birth canal, imagination, guidance of the ancestors, divination, phantoms-fantasy, research, reflection, retreat, psychic perception, sacrifice,
