preference for undisclosed, secretive relationships
[valuable harmonious hidden relationships] [pleasantly camouflaged financial arrangements]
Shukra-Meena -8 [uchcha]
"The significance is hiding in the insignificant. Appreciate everything."
Shukra-8 enjoys the aesthetic of non-disclosure, confidentiality, masking, camouflage.
Pleasure from the discovery of hidden resources.
Occult, occluded, cloud-cover = veiled, then revealed, agreements
Enjoys discovery, revelation, mysterious relationships
Luxurious pleasures of Occult Mystery, Hidden Liaison, and Secret Wealth
Appreciates the value of cycles of self-destruction and rebirth
Aesthetically attracted to the Conditions of Sudden Change and Death.
Relationships may begin and end suddenly." I didn't see that coming."
Prone toward secret alliance -- potentially extramarital, but also extra-political e.g. outside one's party loyalty
undisclosed unions are agreeable
Shukra-8 may marry hidden money . Generally, the spouse's family (2nd from 7th) = financially privileged [Shukra] but as always other graha in 8 can adjust The financial well-being -ratios - Shani-8 = scarcity
In a masculine nativity,
wife may enjoy an inheritance from her parents, a legacy from a decease previous spouse, or other hidden resources
feminine partner (if any) assists in veiling confidential information and hidden relationships. The marriage partner participates in the cover-up.
Males = alternatively, prefer clandestine, undisclosed, mysterious, veiled relationships
Often denotes the Hidden Wife. however, she may be supportive and helpful in private matters.
Environments = First Encounter with Partner
Shukra-8 meets the marriage-partner
Shukra-8 may meets the partner in a secretive fashion or a cloudy, darkened environment, perhaps during a catastrophe or crisis in one of their lives. Commonly the catastrophe is related to the death (2) of an alliance contract (7).
In the modern world, the couple often meet in the throes of post-divorce rebirth of identity (8) . Shukra invests qualities of pleasure and wealth into that forward surge and urge toward identity reconstruction (8).
Importantly, the back-story of recovery from a breakup is veiled from the public (8) but the confidential history of a previous relationship is generally a component of the environment of the marriage.
The new mate is apprehended as the key to a new life and lifestyle often significantly more luxurious than the former lifestyle.
Husband has Shukra-8 = wifely-companion may be drained by need for secrecy. She may be exhausted by celebrity, political ideology, broad-scope perspective.
Shukra-8 has a certain preference to conduct relationships incognito, which can lead to a taste for masked, undisclosed, cloudy, camouflaged environments and extramarital affairs.
However, there is no inherent prediction for illicit conduct unless Risk-loving Rahu or Penetrating Mangala are involved in matters of randhrabhava.
Predictions for outcome of Randhrabhava-8 should be confirmed via the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . and effects of the current Vimshottari Dasha period must be taken into account.
Terms of contract
Human partnership in general is not a permanent component of the identity unless Shukra = lagnesha.
The marriage contract may mimic the conditions of dematerialization, so that Shukra-8 experiences the terms of the life contract as an act of surrender - often involuntary - to forces greater than oneself.
The Money Changer and His Wife by Marinus Van Reymerswaele [c. 1539]
Museo del Prado, Madrid, Espagna
The rashi of bhava-8 can filter the spouse's invasive dynamic. Yet underneath the veneer of marital pleasures, there is an agenda for the lover to penetrate the psyche and control the behavior of the native . (Similar to the way the hunting Shaman is guided to penetrate the life-force psyche of the prey.)
The lover-partner is not always a human person. Sometimes the most intimate companion is a beautiful spirit being.
Shukra-8 may invite camouflaged guiding forces (8) such as spirit-beings to take control (8).
Women in one's life - friends, lovers, female relatives - share a psychologically penetrating attractiveness to some extent. Physical intimacy is an intense and potentially catastrophic experience.
Pleasure from receiving confidences.
incognito love relationships.
Shukra-8 prefers to hide even the conventional aspects of romantic relationships. However, the relationships are rarely too placid. There is always something tantric and controlling about their lover.
One may show the public some sort of conventionalized facade, but behind the facade there is intense energy of psychic domination and control.
Benefits from investment in shared-resource pools. Likelihood of nice inheritance, barring hostile drishti.
Splendid placement for emergency medicine, shipwreck recovery divers, water dowsers, cosmetic surgeons, occultists and trauma healers.
Luxurious wealth of secret information .
Pleasure via psychiatry, surgery, confidential or discovery of hidden wealth. Hidden resource management = money laundering, off-shore banking, Swiss banks.
Pleasure obtained via the Conditions of dematerialization, disaster, emergency and extreme transformations.
Women may be attracted to practice of midwifery, emergency medicine, or cosmetic surgeon. Both genders like secret love affairs.
Not an easy bhava for resident Shukra; yet one may become financially privileged via gaining access to the capital of partners.
Treasuries [Shukra] from undisclosed sources
mani-money comes from undocumented sources, possibly through tax evasion
via inheritance from parents (8th = 5th bhagya from 4th parents)
One of the primary social purposes of marriage is to combine the material assets of two families.
When Shukra occupies 8 = in-laws, the spousal family may bring materially valuable assets into the joint assets of marriage.
Further, the spouse is generally quite pleased [Shukra] to make this contribution due to Shukra's agenda forequity. The in-laws will get a fair exchange value for their investment in the native.
The spousal assets are invested in the Shukra-8 native as a device for the spouse's family (8 = 2nd from 7th) to gain leverage [Shukra] in matters represented by Shukra, its rashi, and other conditions of the 8th bhava.
Shukra-8 indicates that either a considerable inheritance is expected, or the native can marry money
Spends money [Shukra] for acquisition of:
Ritratto di Donna Ebrea con Gli Attributi di Joele * Portrait of a Hebrew Woman with the Attributes of Yael (Hammer and Tent Peg) * Bartolomeo Veneto (active 1502 – 1546)
21 Then Yael, Heber's wife took a tent-pin, and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the pin into his temples, and it pierced through into the ground; for he was in a deep sleep; so he swooned and died.
כא וַתִּקַּח יָעֵל אֵשֶׁת-חֶבֶר אֶת-יְתַד הָאֹהֶל וַתָּשֶׂם אֶת-הַמַּקֶּבֶת בְּיָדָהּ, וַתָּבוֹא אֵלָיו בַּלָּאט, וַתִּתְקַע אֶת-הַיָּתֵד בְּרַקָּתוֹ, וַתִּצְנַח בָּאָרֶץ; וְהוּא-נִרְדָּם וַיָּעַף, וַיָּמֹת.
Whether primarily identified with masculine valence or feminine valence, one enjoys an aesthetic attraction * akarshana * to obscure and occult knowledge, especially the understanding of hidden relationships between people, places, and things.
Not necessarily an indication of infidelity, but rather a signal that in one's love life, there is more than meets the eye Jaimini Dara-karaka in bhava-8 = similar to Shukra in bhava-8
masculine valence or feminine valence
Conditions of dematerialization = randhra bhava
Typically, the shell-death occurs in a pleasant place , attended with sense-soothing delights such as refreshing baths and anointment with fragrant oils.
If Shukra's lord is favorable, death occurs in a holy place, supported by harmonious companions and counselors.
Often, the beloved is present at time of death.
Gustatory Sensation, Gifted Luxuries
Selecting a gift for the native with Shukra in 8?
These folks enjoy the pleasures of occult knowledge, discovery of hidden resources, and insight into the traumatic, sudden shocks of life.
If Budha accompanies Shukra-8, there may be an intellectual interest in the conditions of death-and-rebirth.
Accouterments of the mystery-loving life, such as gracious appointments for the emergency-trauma survival kit or other luxurious items of art and music which enhance the refinement of one's understanding of cycles of death and rebirth, will be much appreciated gifts.
Characteristics of the Environment where ones meets the life-partner(s)
Bhava-8 = a natural sthana of Mangala = an agent of mystery, discovery, sexual-pursuit, invasion, and psychic or physical penetration.
8 =12th from 9th = religion. The union may have all good qualities and yet orthodox religious (9) sanctification does not occur. There may be no public marriage ceremony.
Both genders are attracted [Shukra] to women [Shukra] who are secretive by nature, handlers of hidden information, or who work with dangerous, emergency situations.
Not always karaka for infidelity but even if one is faithful to one's own spouse, one may enjoy hearing the details of others' hidden love affairs and one will become a repository for secret materials and information, * especially hidden wealth.
One may indeed choose a marriage-partner of any gender who has been previously married or involved in previous alliance, or is indeed currently involved in hidden alliances
| In a feminine nativity
Shukra-8 typically has few female companions but those who exist may be tantriki = trauma healers of a darkly attractive appearance or penetrating psychological quality.
The woman herself is a healer, and she be gifted in the practice of midwifery, surgery, alchemy, or the various arts of identity transformation. Her sexual energy has penetrating, uncovering, unveiling qualities of the shamanic huntress. Pleasure from mysteries, secrets, emergencies (8), shocking or sudden disclosure, and hidden indulgence [Shukra].
Excellent position for female healers and healers of females, such as midwives, cosmetic surgeons, managers of the financial estates of the dead, psychiatrists, and occult practitioners.
In any rashi, Shukra-8 is somewhat self-destructive . Conscious rebirth is an excellent option. Distinctive sweet tendency toward incognito liaison; or if an artist, a secret artistic pursuit or undisclosed musical gifts.
In a masculine nativity , Shukra = kalatrakaraka = significator of the wife.
The wife or lover is often hidden from public view. Due to 8th = draining 12th from 9th (public ritual) a male may take a female life-partner without the public vow of marriage = especially likely if Shukra suffers moudhya-dosha. or, one may prefer to conduct love affairs behind a veil of obscurity.
masculine nativity is attracted to women whose influence generates conditions of profound life change. The woman may have hidden assets and she is willing to keep the relationship secret , at least for a while.
Sweet Shukra-8 = natural Sthana of Mangala = a wife with penetrating sexual and healing energy. Wife = involved in secret matters, for example:
In any rashi, the wife is somewhat self-destructive .
shad-ashtaka 6-8 angles from Shukra = polarizing catalysis areas for alliances
Shukra-8 enjoys the particular challenge of "self" kalpa-bhava-1 = 6th from 8, so that marriage and peer partnership is not as a rule very beneficial for one's life-vitality;
(terms of the alliance contract = adversarial to the health)
Periods of the bhratru-pati-3 = 8th from Shukra = can produce sudden announcements which shock and upheave the alliance
adversarial, conflicted 6th from Shukra-8 = tanu bhava-1
shocking, secret 8th from Shukra-8 = vikrama-bhava-3
"... libido is very strong, but it does not necessarily lead to promiscuity.
Becoming deeply sensitive to the enduring impulses of your life-essence, you often achieve exceptional status in society;
Your religious proclivities are both intense and intrinsically honest.
Death is generally at a noble place.
Gain through legacy or patrimony.
Natural, peaceful and easy end.
You are learned and a person of character.
Always in debt.
Mean and unbecoming action.
Long-living, prosperous, strong and rich.
Sick, quarrelsome, vagrant, idle but popular.
Disreputed, married, poor, wicked, bold and worried about the family.
Loyalist, possibly non-vegetarian, large eyes, death after 75.
You pay off your father's debt , promotes family interest,
death in a holy place of bile-cough."
