" Laziness will stop your progress in your spiritual practice.

One can be deceived by three types of laziness:

  • the laziness of indolence, which is the wish to procrastinate

  • the laziness of inferiority, which is doubt ing your capabilities

  • the laziness that is attachment to negative actions, or putting great effort into non-virtue." [end quote]

Shukra-12 appreciates private enclosures and is generally quite charitable.

Feminine figures are identified with enclosure, seclusion, isolation. In a masculine nativity, shukra-12 may represent the wifely figure who seeks privacy and invisibility, such as an artist who cherishes their studio time.

Wealth and luxury in distant lands, in the private bedroom, behind walls, in cloister, via meditation, via prayers of gratitude, via reflection, via fantasy and the images of the inner mind.

In a husbandly nativity, the wifely-companion may hail from a distant land.

Alternatively, the wifely mate may indulge in intoxicants or other private sensuality. She may simply be a deeply private person.

Adjacent parallel life (12) = likely a feminine incarnation, easily imagined. Tendency toward sweets addictions, although there is no criminal element.

Pleasure from long sojourn in gracious, distant lands

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe [secretive-emerging Mriga-4] + [Surya-yuti-Ketu] + [Shani-yuti-Shukra] As the baby USA was trying to grow its infrastructure, Elizabeth and her husband James Monroe were diplomatically stationed in France. Their job was to keep financial channels open and flowing,. EM's indispensable ability to form relationships in the host country was widely praised.

Enjoys privacy, sanctuary, hermitage, meditative and imaginative relationships

  • Luxurious pleasures of veiled isolation in the bedroom, the monastery, distant lands

Shukra-12 craves sanctuary. Seeking sleep and peacefulness of a retreat to the astral, may choose to use numbing drugs to achieve that unconscious recharging state.

diplomacy in matters of private guidance

graceful balance in invisible, intimate relationships

prefers a cloistered, enclosed environment

  • Luxurious pleasures via Clairsentient Perceptions, dreams, sleep, meditation, privacy

Bedroom Pleasures and Prayer Sanctuary

Shukra the Sensualist is not especially well placed in a natural sthāna of religious-teacher Guru, but Shukra does bring a delicious dose of pleasure into the imaginative life.

Spirit guides are active in this life and much imaginative intelligence is engaged. Yet, the instructions of the ancestral Guide's tend to direct one along a portion of the astral-to-material path (12) which develops material art forms [Shukra] rather than the channel which develops intuitive wisdom via dreams or reflective prayer [Guru].

Excellent placement for balanced conditions within research enclosures, sanctuary environments, and things that happen when everyone else is sleeping

Prayer and psychic guidance with a specifically spiritual focus [Guru] will tend to be replaced by a deeply reflective appreciation for the beauty of the physical form .

In the 12th amza, the Muse is unleashed.

Particularly high value is placed upon feminized, magnetically attractive, receptive sensual beauty . One's relationship to the artistic Muse is often strong or more important than one's relationship to other humans..

That which functions in bhava-12 can drain the vitality from bhava-1.

Shukra in 12 causes a draining and dissolving of the life-force through guidance of the artistic Muse, distant travel and women in distant lands, along with indulgence in sweet fantasy and bedroom pleasures.

  • enjoys a quiet, enclosed space in which their sensual imagination can roam.

  • enjoys the sanctuary of bedroom

  • enjoys the private space behind the bed curtains.

also out the back door and back-room deals, agreements and arrangements

enjoys international travel (Guru's sthāna 12) to pleasure destinations.

enjoys the private world of feminine companionship, pleasure, tastes.

  • enjoys works of the pleasuring imagination.

Meditations upon a beautiful female deity in a lushly decorated sanctuary. Loves love long journeys in foreign lands, particularly in the company of Feminine Nativities.

Dreams and fantasies of Luxurious wealth. Tendency toward sensual indulgence in private dalliance. Aesthetic appreciation for pleasure of hotels, spas, and enclosed properties.

Not an easy position for marriage. The pleasure-relationship karaka Shukra occupies 6th-from-7th, the things which provide Shukra-12 with the deepest experience of pleasure are simultaneously those things which are inimical to marriage, and may provoke animosity from the spouse.

Some attraction * akarshana * to narcotics (dream-drugs) in many chemical and behavioral forms. Alcoholism over time, due to using alcohol to fall asleep. Sleeping pills. Pleasure from sleep and dreams .

Enjoys the psychic reading and healing environment; inner reflection; Astral travel .

May be gifted in art and music drawing resources from fantasy and imagination.

The reflective imagination; and meditation including disembodied interior (non-petitionary ) prayer.

treasury comes from distant locales; private subject matter (Barbara Walters), secluded behaviors


Selecting a gift for Shukra-12 with Shukra in 12? These folk enjoy sleep and dreams, pleasures of the bedroom. Accouterments of the bedroom, such as lavender oil for calm sleep, pillows, fine sheeting, sleepwear, or other luxurious items of sanctuary, may be much appreciated gifts.

Fashion-design, art and Beauty

In the material world of beautiful human decorative forms and objects, shukra-12 loves the fashionable art form of shoes, footwear, and ornamentations of The feet.

Privacy and the Bedroom

Shukra in 12 gives the sensual, musical, and artistic ability to enjoy private things, such as clandestine foreign diplomacy

bedroom secrets

private or highly personal information

  • interview journalist Barbara Walters

meditative, private prayer


Sensual taste for fantasy in art and literature. Enjoys watching movies in a darkened room, read fantasy fiction, experience imaginative worlds, and confessional performance in which the speaker innermost private perceptions are dramatized.

Shukra in Vyaya bhava delights in the artistic imagery of astrology and dreams without necessarily understanding these informational messages on an intellectual level. Shukra's tastes luxuriate in the lush imaginary traffic on the bridge between the astral plane (subconscious) and the material plane (conscious).

Shukra in 12 also contributes to the dissolution of the material plane identity. Shukra sensual indulgences tend to siphon off the vitality from the animal, blood-fed, muscular body and transmit the life-force back into the dream world. As a result Shukra becomes associated with losses and the two domains which are ruled by the Daityaguru will get drained of their positive reserves.

Entreasurement via

  • long sojourn in distant lands, such as foreign postings during career or investments in these foreign countries

  • meditation, ashram, dormitory, hospital, and sanctuary environments

  • bedroom behaviors

  • private or clandestine relationships (outside of marriage)

  • work with on private arrangements that are not subject to public view

  • beautiful [Shukra] effects of the guidance of the Muse : imaginative results such as poems, songs, literature, paintings, sculpture

If additional graha occupy bhava-12, naaturally, these traits would be modified r.

Naturally, the yuvati-pati-7 from Chandra and from lagna do play an important role in defining marriage, but the karaka for marriage which is Shukra is doubly important for males.

In a masculine nativity , shukra-12 is a complex placement.

The wifely-companion is not clearly apprehended as a person. Often she is of distant origin.

Marriage union remains a bit of a beautiful fantasy.

  • Masculine-figures who have crafted an incarnational plan that features Shukra-12

  • may enjoy reveries, fantasies, or reflect in a dreamy way about a wifely figure.

  • Such a wifely figure may be [in the un-dreamy fact] functioning as an enemy of the marriage, pursuing private interests, perhaps in foreign-or-psychic worlds that linger far from the view of the Shukra-12 native

  • Shukra-12 applies a a veil of fantasy traits toward matters of meditative, imaginative, secluded experiences - including all of the Shukra-karaka figures, most prominently the wifely-role-holder.

  • When Shukra occupies Vyaya bhava, shukra-12 's own life-force - despite an active bed-pleasure relationship - may be slowly drained by the inscrutable, other-worldly, even phantasmagoric behavior of the wife. There may even come a time, under some extreme conditions in 12 such as samchara Rahu-Ketu contact when Shukra is with nodes, when the wife literally drains the blood from her husband.

  • Because Shukra-12 with Shukra in 12 enjoys long periods of seclusion, which may involve work in foreign lands, meditation retreats etc., one may spend considerably less time developing the marriage agreement and more time fantasizing about the ideal woman.

Most of the marriage bonding activity occurs in the bedroom, rather than in public settings. No matter what outward stress the marriage is suffering, the bed pleasure component remains intact.

Losses through impulsive love or misdirected affection, caused by projections of the romantic imagination. Unrequited love, or long-term behind-closed-doors love relationships. Often the private lover of one who cannot leave their unloving spouse. Sacrificial love.

Well-liked by denizens of the astral plane, and by one's own spirit guides. Seduced and pleasured in dreams; attractive to those from foreign lands.

When Shukra occupies the sthāna of Bed Pleasures, escapism through indulgent sexual pleasures, and potential for sexual pleasure addiction if Shukra is strong.

If Shukra is empowered in bhava-12, the escapist sexual pleasures may be coupled with alcohol or drug use. The identity is dissolved through sensual pleasuring and intoxicating indulgence.

Ironically, excess animal sensualism may damage the balance of marriage, since Vyaya bhava is 6th-from-7th indicating animosity in the partnership. bhava-12 is absorptive. While Shukra-12 takes in much pleasure, one provides little pleasure for others. A pleasure junkie.

If Shukra is well-disposed, the dreams are vividly artistic and musical. Much pleasure through the private imagination. The real lover is never as fabulous as the lover in one's imagination.

Often, ahusband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a secluded, private, invisible environment, awalled compound, ahotel or dormitory, aresearch laboratory, aforeign land, or in a dream. The life-partner's ability to reflect his fantasies is important to him, and her imaginative powers may form the basis of the marriager.

Shukra (Luxmi) = karaka for luxurious wealth

Wealth from foreign posting during government or corporate service.

Shukra-12 loses vitality in the act of spending money [Shukra] on luxuries as a style of escape from reality. In a rashi of Budha, in bhava-12, shukra makes an"impulse buyer" who may have a very complex rationalization for one's behavior, but who is still a fantasy-driven money spender.

Often Shukra-12 with Shukra in bhava-12 will manifest some behavior in the categories of Addiction to private imaginative pleasures and fantasies of affluence .

Fantasy of treasuries can occasionally become the seed of a genuine working plan to earn or develop capital. Some nativities indeed will profile a highly intuitive capitalist who worked forward from the imaginative first step to conceptualization to making a grounded plan to work and organize resources.

Such a native may be very successful materially, and Shukra in bhava-12 in this rare circumstance will be found to receive the drishti of a strong Shani or there is some important lagna featuring Śrāvaṇa or Dhaniṣṭha - Delphinus .

As a general rule however, wealth fantasies related to Shukra/12 are vitality-dissolving private imaginings which actually drain the energy from practical earthly pursuit of building material worth. Based on a fantasy resource, shukra-12 may feel that one is entitled to spend capital without limit. Such a native is unsatisfied by modest amounts of financial wealth .

One may insist that"nothing less than endless money" is acceptable to them. Such an overspender may be willing to engage in unscrupulous business (notably, prostitution) in order to generate the money to buy luxury items. Not surprisingly, shukra-12 with Shukra in bhava-12 unrestrained by Shani may pose a serious difficulty to harmonious marriage relationships

If Shukra is combined with Rahu, gambling addictions, prostitution addictions, and other expensive private habits may develop.

If Shukra is combined with Chandra, shukra-12 is spoiled by material indulgence from the parents, who did not make clear to the child that wealth is generally earned through an exchange of values. The adult child expects to receive pleasures but does not comprehend that another value (such as record-keeping labor-2, or support of the partner's interests-7) must be exchanged.

The keynotes of all graha in bhava-12 = "unrealistic" ,"dissolving boundaries "and"world of dreams ". bhava-12 is the bridge between the current life (1) and the past-life (12). Perhaps one remembers The treasuries of a parallel life and consider it available to spend, even when the coffers of the current life accounts are factually quite empty. Images lingering just underneath the floor of consciousness do not provide factual information, but rather strong impressions, memories, and impulses.

The vague images and barely-heard instructions of vyaya bhava may empower a gifted psychic medium -- who handles the messages for what they are, living dreams. Unfortunately, the same imagery may dis-empower one too attached to the material plane -- who misinterprets faint images of a previous life as valid instructions for the current incarnations.

Shukra-12 with Shukra in bhava-12 must proceed carefully with wealth, luxury, and pleasure fantasies. These images can potentially form the positive seed from which a concrete plan to earn and spend cintamani * mani * money can grow. However,

Shukra notices abundance sensual pleasures in the dream space

Splendid artistic imagination , and bodes well for valuable art and music production in the confines of studio or sanctuary space. Yet, the material manifestation of the two sthāna s ruled by Shukra will be expressed only in the world of dreams.

Abundant sensual skill makes a master of bed pleasure , but the material manifestation of the two sthāna ruled by Shukra will be expressed only in the world of dreams.


Shukra in bhava-12 wishes to keep love relationships and one's aesthetic tastes as private as possible. The love of sweets such as alcohol and sensual bed pleasures is much increased, possibly to the point of addictions.

Dissolves the first wife in a husbandly chart and in a wifely chart weakens her relationships to other womenfolk. In a husbandly nativity, either loss of a wife by death or social-emotional dissolution of the relationship to the first wifely figure. For wifely-figures, same vis--vis her sisters and close associates among womenfolk.

Meditative daydreams and fantasies

Topics of reflective visualization are related to Shukra's karaka behaviors: acquired wealth, sensual pleasures, attractiveness, harmonious and mutually beneficial agreements, balanced architectural and social designs, music, fine arts, and aesthetic, appreciative love.

Acquisitive material-luxury Shukra is unhappy in a preaching-teaching sthāna of Guru. There is often discomfort from the conflict between fantasies of sensual wealth and pleasure [Shukra] which have carried through from a parallel life , versus the more spiritual values of peacefulness and intuitive knowledge that are naturally promoted by Guru.

  • In a masculine nativity, chronic dissatisfaction with the wife, who is never as beautiful or pleasurable or financially privileged as the fantasy vision.

  • In a feminine nativity, classic overspending in the search for ineffable luxury.

  • One who marries a spouse with Shukra/12 should be prepared for their spending habits.

Shukra-12 was indeed a person of luxurious sensuality and artistic talent in a parallel life , with a strong connection to music, dance, and perfumes. By default, graha in bhava-12 are 'dissolved' into astral imagery. Whether this distinction will manifest again in the current life depends on the supporting graha.

Favors scientific research into women's tastes and into the psychology of marriage.

QUOTATION * Das / Bepin Behari commentary on Shukra-12

" Venus produces a material impulse . It leads you towards sensual gratification and involvement in unethical relationships which bind the soul strongly in chains of materialization.

One may remember that Venus is the advisor to the demons who command the anti-devic (godly) forces.

  • The advice given by Venus can lead you to adopt bad actions which will require scores of lives to release the soul from bondage.

  • These activities are produced by passion, lustful intentions, psychologically acquisitive tendencies, and ritualistic or overly formal religious observances.

These tendencies are greatly accentuated when Venus occupies the Twelfth sthāna, which can finally fix you in your pleasant sleep (of illusion) and in the enjoyment of a comfortable couch (karmic bondage).

  • Successful in service but makes you interested in independent business.

  • Mental restlessness, little financial gain. Ethical. Values affection [ yet often] incapable of giving pleasure.

  • You can be a successful poet, writer, painter, singer, dancer etc. You sometimes earn money; your excess bile checked.

  • Finds pleasure on the playing field or in noble deeds; spends your wealth on religious, charitable and public welfare activities.

  • Loss of virtue and reputation; friends turn enemies. Strife with friends and people in general.

  • Phlegmatic.

You may gain wealth; but spend it every day . Sensual. Makes best efforts; want of virtue; sudden disputes with friends.

  • Heavy expenditure against low receipt. Ruinous to relatives; lewd-minded and poor. Vile, sensuous, quarrelsome, rich.

Extravagant , discord with friends and seniors. A liar and unpopular amongst relatives. Sick and ailing. infidel, unkind, debauch and gross body. You get pleasure through own spouse; prosperous and impressive.

Inert, happy, ugly, characterless, vile, purified diet, skilled in amorous sport.

  • Sick in childhood, healthy but cruel in youth, weak, gloomy and miserly. Perverse.

This Venus indicates a love for romance and adventure; desire to unravel the mysteries of nature, secret arts, medicine, chemistry;

  • pleasure and gain: of animals, through ignoble jobs, charitable institutions; loves loneliness.

  • Venus: you will be saving money always."

The stronger is Shukra by rashi, the more powerful Shukra-12 's luxury and pleasure fantasies .r.

Danger of extravagant spending when Shukra [uchcha], or Shukra in a rashi of either Shukra or Budha.

If lacking the discriminatory intelligence to separate the dreams of treasuries -luxury-sensuality versus the material reality of the real money in the bank account, real salary, real professional earnings capability, these natives may slip into the trap of addictive, expensive indulgences. (Does not provide elegant taste, just expensive taste!)

The fantasy perception of accumulated wealth is very strong when Shukra occupies Guru's sthāna of expansive abundance.

The memory of a large spendable hoard is a carry-over from a previous life (12th sthāna = parallel lives ) in which there was much accessible financial well-being.

Shukra-12 may recognize that this powerfully sensed treasury exists in dream form only, may be feel entitled to spend the current lifetime's real cintamani * mani * money in quite excessive patterns. In the modern world, The imaginary hoard may be simply a credit card.

  • In a masculine nativity, the implication for luxury addiction and overspending in the first wife are worth considering before marriage. Maritally motivated polarizing catalysis s arising from the confusion between The wifely figure's fantasy of luxurious wealth with the reality of the actual marital budget may well arise.

Shukra-12 may enjoy a vision of one's own personal beauty and seductive attractiveness. Such a person frequents beauty services and spends on fashions, as usual with the 12th-from behaviors, trying to materialize a past-life entitlement in the current life.

  • However, no matter how much time or money is spent on trying to achieve an ephemeral perception of beauty or attractiveness, shukra-12 may feel that is it not quite what was wanted.

For both masculine-identified and feminine-identified Nativities, shukra's attracting function is submerged in vague depths of the subconscious

one suffers shifting perceptions of the beauty and attractiveness of oneself and others.

Fantasy expectations of visual attractiveness of real femininity. A husbandly-companion may wish the wifely-companion to materialize an imaginary feminine charisma.

12 = 6th-from-7

Attracted to partners outside marriage, hoping each time to revisit dream of the ageless, timeless, boundary-less feminine Muse.

For Mesha and Vṛścika indriya-lagna, shukra = yuvati-pati-7 .

If Shukra occupies vyaya bhava, shukra resides in 6th-from-7th. There may be a persistent disagreeable animosity regarding the spousal conduct or appearance. The conflict although continuous may be addressed attempts to heal the rift via sensuality of bed pleasure and fantasy denial of the imbalance, accusation, or disagreements.

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

  • sanctuary
  • enclosures
  • prison-monastery-hospital
  • bedroom - hotel
  • distant lands
  • imagination
  • dreams
  • fantasy
  • clairsentience
  • spiritual guidance
  • meditation and personal prayer
  • privacy
  • father's childhood home (4th from 9th)
  • auspice of paternal grandmother

When Shukra occupies Vyaya bhava, it is expected that the marriage partner would first be encountered in a dream or fantasy, while sojourning in a distant land, or in a meditation hall, hospital, convent, or similar sanctuary space. Possibly a prison or refugee camp. There are many varieties of sanctuary and enclosure, internal and external..

Shukra-12 = meeting the partner in internal enclosure (dream, reflection) or external enclosure (walled space).

[Shukra-Mesha] = bhava-12

Escape into simple excitements, such as hunting and fighting.

Likes the world of imaginative imagery involving foreign lands, conquests, winning competitions, and fighting for dominance.

Sensuality of blood sport and wars in foreign lands. Dreamy love of horses especially in Aśvini.

Das commentary

  • " ... does not help in the immediate development of spirituality:

  • it leaves you deeply asleep, enjoying the pleasures of a luxurious bed,

  • incurring debts and enjoying "horses , elephants, and paternal wealth."

[Shukra-Urisha] = bhava-12

Escape into sensual fantasies, oral fixations, extraordinary visual, auditory, and tactile pleasures; addiction to fine wines, food, music, textiles, oils, and all other vehicles of five-senses sensual pleasure.

A love of luxury 'escapes' such as the 'getaway weekend' or 'spa weekend'. (Also may 'escape' into fine music, although this is more a behavior of [uchcha] Shukra-Meena.

in 12, enjoys the deepest sensual pleasuring in foreign lands, and in the private imagination. Sexually, often an interest in artistic styles of pornography.

Drugs used in pursuit of the illusion of a more dream-like beauty may lead to serious disease.

Das commentary

  • " ... you will spend much on your children

  • and your indulgence may well spoil them ."

[Shukra-Mithuna] in bhava-12 rules 4 + 11 = Karkata-born



A protective personality who prefers to have a hermitage, private retreat, or place of quietude. Escape into delightfully sexualized conversations and a private sanctuary of encoded communication. There is often a sibling "twinning" quality to the intimate relationships.

Private signals and a two-faced public-private arrangement permits long-term management of extra-marital affairs [12]

disposed to feel the pleasure of talkative enclosure. Aesthetic of invisible transactions, the busy bedroom, the scheduling of arrangements - away from the preying eyes of the public.

Property, security, friendships, and revenues result from Shukra-related matters such as finance, diplomacy, brokerage, middleman-meddler, bargaining, match-making. Most of the economic dealings are unidentifiable to the public. Yet the results of behind-the-scenes negotiation are tangibly beneficial for real-estate [4] and marketplace [11] roles.

Das commentary WRT [Shukra-Mithuna] [12]

" Venus produces sensuous cravings .

  • As a result, you will be made to suffer from your excesses."

[Shukra-Karkata] in bhava-12 rules 3 + 10 = Simha-born


A political personality who prefers to have a hermitage, private retreat, or place of quietude. Escape into familiar surroundings, pleasant marital routines, parental security, protective arrangements.

disposed to feel the pleasure of safe enclosure. Aesthetic of invisibility, the childhood bedroom, the comforts of home - away from the preying eyes of the public.

Prosperous career in Shukra-related matters such as finance, diplomacy, brokerage, middleman-meddler, bargaining, match-making. Most of the professional dealings are unidentifiable to the public. Yet the results of behind-the-scenes negotiation are tangibly beneficial for business [3] and government [10] roles.

Das commentary

  • " Venus will induce you to exert your might for some philanthropic cause .

  • It will not be entirely a labor of love; you may have to work under such programs as a part of your official duty.

  • In discharging such responsibilities, you will try to gain some personal gratification but will pay for it heavily."

[Shukra-Singha] = bhava-12


Escape into royal privilege and glamour. In the private imagination, one is the radiant center of attention. Like most royalty, you have competition for your throner.

Shukra-Simha-12 Das commentary:

" You will not be attracted to ultimate spiritual goals;

  • you will be interested only in living here and now.

Such a strong urge to dwell among the material world,

  • its pleasure and pain, gratification and sorrow will make you uniquely important in society

  • you will enjoy life.

  • You will have adversaries and will sometimes be seriously troubled by them."

[Shukra-Kanya] = bhava-12

Escape into humiliation, rejection of one's own beauty, and argumentation regarding failure of one's ability to give or receive affection.

Trouble from fallen women.

Attracted to Drugs, partly to ease digestion.

Das commentary

  • " ... produces a person who is singularly gifted in transmuting failures and carnal passions into sublime poetry, and in exploration of the deeper layers of the human psyche.

  • You may be a failure as a lover , but you will be a success in exploring the immeasurable depths of human relationships.

  • You will suffer from unknown maladies and personally feel disappointed in life, but while waiting for the final dissolution you will be able to enjoy yourself fully."

[Shukra-Vanika] = bhava-12\

Escape into a sanctuary of private, perhaps completely imaginary, relationships. Shukra-12 may be better suited to avoid material marriage.

Excellent imagination which can produce splendid designs, including deep psychological understanding of relationship negotiation and balance.

Yet, in the physical world, such a balanced relationship seems quite ephemeral.

Das commentary,

  • " ... you become very luxury loving.

  • You marry into a good family but are unable to maintain a cordial relation with your spouse ."

[Shukra-Vṛścika] = bhava-12

Escape into imaginary tantrik quests for secret knowledge. A delusion of tantra, involving psychic exposure , which can make Shukra-12 vulnerable to penetration by invisible agents of disease. Self-destructive sexual indulgencer.

Das commentary

  • " ... you spend extravagantly and do not care to preserve your vital force .

  • Your extramarital relationships will become a drain on your financial resources, and at worst you may die of venereal disease."

[Shukra-Dhanus] = bhava-12


Vidyapthi-5+karmesha-10 Shukra-Dhanus for Maraka lagna = a highly benevolent

yogakaraka graha. However, the benefits of this otherwise fine graha are dissolved into astral imagery and give limited results on the material plane.

Wealth (5) and respect (10) from other-worldly activities.

Escape into imaginary religious ceremonies, contrived priesthoods, and moral soliloquies.

Inflated beliefs regarding one's own power and attractiveness.

One wishes to be sensually worshipped.

QUOTATION Das commentary,

  • " ... you lose many valuable opportunities in life.

  • You have a clever mind and your sensitivity is extraordinary.

  • Many people are willing to help you, but your personal sloth , sensual inclinations, clandestine affairs and rebellious temperament destroy your chances of phenomenal progress."

[Shukra-Makara-Draco] = bhava-12

bandesha-4 +dharmesha-9 Shukra-Makara for Kumbha indriya-lagna = a highly benevolent

yogakaraka. However, the benefits of this otherwise fine graha are dissolved into astral imagery and give limited results on the material plane.

Property (4) and wisdom (9) from other-worldly activities.

Splendid bone structure; typically quite handsome. Escape into imaginary proofs of elegant living, prestige, respect, and social status.

Das commentary,

  • " You are deprived of a harmonious family life.

  • You live extravagantly and dissipate your energy in useless activities , but emotional and sensual satisfaction elude you."

[Shukra-Kumbha] = bhava-12

vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 Shukra-Kumbha = a less benevolent graha for the Meena indriya-lagna . Harmonious relationships are hard to come by.

Escape into conceptual and social-philosophical imagination, envisioning social progress through movement toward future goals.

Enjoys to reflect upon - but not necessarily participate in -- mass gatherings, assemblies of like-minded, and visionary futuristic networks.

One dreams for a better future, but the present reality is rather uncomfortable.

Conditions of life prevent one from living out most of one's egalitarian social ideals. However, shukra-12 is immensely charitable.

QUOTATION Das commentary WRT Shukra -Kumbha bhava-12

" Venus in this sign will deny all personal comfort and pleasure,

  • And you will be subjected to unexpected misfortunes in life."

Shukra-Meena in bhava-12 rules 2+7 for Mesha-born



Shukra ruler of 2 + 7 becomes an empowered maraka

Escape into imaginary musical and artistic harmony, aworld of memories, full of brilliant signaling and path-finding, that use gorgeous dreamlike colors and designs.

Extraordinary richness of the private imagination. Spiritual guidance from aesthetic sources. Entreasurement from private partnerships.

Quotation Das commentary WRT Shukra-Meena-12

"You will live luxuriously and in dignity,

  • towards which you will spend lavishly .

Your mind will be both poetic and musical,

  • and in these pursuits you will spend much of your time.

Your spouse will be a real help."
