Shukra's planetary friend Shani activates Makara

Sweet Pleasures of dignity and respect

Shukra-Makara-Draco expresses appreciation of:

  • law and order,
  • conservative styles
  • traditional designs
  • regular patterns
  • pomp and rigmarole
  • status symbols
  • uniforms

Shukra-Makara expresses an aesthetic of

  • seniority
  • maturity
  • age and experience
  • sturdy structure
  • public dignity
  • social respect

Makara = a supportive and friendly rashi for Venus.

Shukra will be able to pursue His agenda of diplomacy, equity, beauty, elite ornamentation, and socially respectable amounts of treasuries accumulation.

In Makara, Shukra encounters almost no obstructions to material pursuits.

Likes law-and-order in social relationships, and socially approved behaviors in sexual union. Makara favors "common law" arrangements.

Makara-Draco likes to climb steadily and gradually to visible, high places. The partner should have the proper appreciation of social status achievement behaviors to be able to enjoy this climb.

Prefers a social structured relationship, based on similar demographic class background and matching [Shukra] professional competencies.

Prefers a partnership oriented toward rank and position, public visibility, respect, and dignified reputation.

The lover-partner should have a conventional, socially established appearance along with some variety of material elite status attributes such as professional seniority, distinguished curriculum vitae, high-rank career, or social-network assets.

Males particularly appreciate a partner whose career provides senior standing in institutional bureaucracy,government or law .

Shukra-Makara-Draco = values the dignity and material pragmatic behaviors of age and experience much more than the superficial beauties of youth.

Prefers an older or more experienced mate

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien met his beloved wife Edith when she was 19 and he was 16. Their marriage sustained until death.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner [Dhanistha-1]RS first wife was elder and a widow. She supported him financially through his early period, subsidizing the publication of RS first literary magazine.

  • Harmonices Mundi 1571-1630 Johannes Kepler [Shukra-yuti-Ketu] [Shukra-2 parivartamsha Shani-11-uchcha] JK first wife was twice-widowed with children when their union was consecrated. Her father objected to the union, because she had inherited the estates of both of her earlier husbands, but JK had no significant assets at the time of their marriage. However, due to his Shukra-Shani exchange, he would access her capital to increase their wealth, and he would also inherit her estate when she deceased.

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes + [Budha-yuti-Shani] (1) sought elder companions in the Convent of the Sisters of Charity

  • Political publicist 1966- Calista Gingrich was born in 1966; her husband USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich was born in 1943. He was 56 years old when they married.

Exceptions occur with patterns of with multiple marriages.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono was seven years older than her third husband, Imagine 1940-1980 Beatle John Lennon

Although Shukra-Makara-Draco under auspice of friendly Shani does favor maturity in the mate, Mrs. Lennon had a dominating Rahu-Budha-Surya-7 complex which was activated to seek prestige [Rahu] via an immature [Budha] male [Surya].

In a feminine nativity, Makara Shukra values relationships and environments that contain qualities of social status and public dignity (particularly in reputation-preserving Śrāvaṇa). The feminine being appreciates in herself the qualities of structured design, respectable social status, and balanced engagement with matters of law and policy.

Shukra-Makara seeks social-hierarchically and materially positioned qualities in the mate:

  • gracefully materialistic and harmoniously realistic

  • attends to balanced social reputation, pleasant behavioral regularity, nicely arranged and appointed public image

  • one is involved in pursuit of justice, equity, or formal legal settlement via government, institutional, or large hierarchical social organizations

deal in matters of Law and Policy; professionally engaged in social regulation

orderly and conventional expectations in relationships, including a socially normal division of labor (will vary by culture)

  • capable of obtaining and sustaining governance roles

  • elder in age, or senior in life experience

  • conventional and socially accepted public reputation

dislikes fawning attention (Makara = 6th-from-Simha)
  • Dittoheads 1951-2021 radio polemic Rush Limbaugh * Shukra-yuti-Mangala [uchcha] * works in an enclosure where no one can see him

  • prefers a respectable and dignified lifestyle with leadership capability

Shukra-Makara enjoys working with large, structured social organizations and with matters of social policy and law. And, in a rashi of Shani the Worker, Shukra-Makara just plain enjoys working.

Should Shukra-Makara, who is already in a rashi of Shani, also receive drishti of Shani, the marriage may occur later in life (not in the teenage years; and for moderns, Typically, after completion of the professional education, in the third decade or later.)

For the masculine nativity, Shukra-Makara + accepting drishti of Shani indicates a wife who is elder or otherwise senior to Shukra-Makara .

Such a wife is more experienced and serves as a mentor to Shukra-Makara . When Shani in addition rules Svamsha or navamsha-7, the wifely-figure may be considerably elder. Such a wife often has her own money.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt [Surya-yuti-Shukra] (3) had a long and complex relationship with his wife Eleanor. After the birth of their sixth child, his early and heartbreaking affair began with her private secretary. Yet despite much vicissitude, Eleanor maintained the public dignity of the marriage. She proved capable of government service during WW-2 and regardless of their interpersonal conflicts they shared [Shukra] an enduring commitment to the maintenance of the social order.

Provides beautiful [Shukra] bone structure [Shani], giving the sculpted face and body of a fashion model. These women are typically quite photogenic. Their face may feature a lovely architecture of bone and sinew, often with distinctively attractive cheekbones.

(If in Dhaniṣṭha-Delphinus-Vasu , also a superb dancer.)

Sensual pleasures through the skeleton, bones, knees, cartilage, social status, achieving higher rank, orderly and lawful environments.

Shukra-Makara prefers a strong, lawful government , firm cultural agreements/homogeny, hierarchies and traditions, and the Rule of Law.

  • favors conventional marriage and family lifestyle (although if Shukra occupies a dushthamsha this preferred arrangement may be unavailable)

  • equity with a handsome, reliable and predictable spouse who conducts a law-abiding lifestyle guided by conventional, hierarchical values.

  • enjoys order; dignity; respect

Often found enjoying themselves while passing down or enforcing social traditions, in elementary classroom teaching, police administration or other basic socialization professions .

Attracted to conservative, securely employed partners who can make long-term commitments, fulfill conventional expectations, and keep their promises.

Shukra-1-Makara for the Makara indriya-lagna = a powerful political yogakaraka activates 5 + 10

QUOTATION Das comments on Shukra-Makara

"Impotent, foolish, attached to women older in age;

  • weak, fear, heart-trouble;

  • service, trusted,

  • gain through the employer .

  • Gain and success through banking, stock-exchange, commerce etc.

  • Trouble through marriage and high ambition ."

Bhava influence, examples

  • the male is attracted to businesswomen who have a good solid understanding of media production, financing, licensing, legal environment, and a partner who is a high-ranked commercial agents bringing in more abundance via one's own productive work. In 3, Shukra gives the aesthetic of commercial transactions. Pitt co-owns successful movie production companies with both of his high-cheekbone spouses.

A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf + [Surya-yuti-Budha]

  • Shukra = combust = effects are less energized. Overall, the impact of literary-imaginative Budha-Makara-Draco yuti Shukra-Makara-Draco = a preference for the alliances with partners of senior standing (Makara, hierarchy) in one's own publicly recognized profession [Makara]. Leonard Bloom was a professionally respected writer and publisher [Budha] with whom VSW co-owned a publically recognized literary press. In bhava-3 Makara, Shukra gives the aesthetic of dignified entrepreneurship (3). One prefers to maintain a respected public reputation ++ Shukra's proximity to Budha adds business orientation. Although VSWf and her husband lost marital intimacy and she took up with numerous extramarital partners (including Virginia's most famous lover, the lady Vita Sackville-West), still Virginia-and-Leonard remained mutually cooperative and appreciative [Shukra]. Given their continuing social and financial compatibility [Shukra] they maintained a pleasant collaboration (3) until the end. They never divorced and VSW often expressed her appreciation for him and for their relationship in her speech and writing.
