Wifely nativity with Shukra-Mesha


= values relationships and environments that contain,

and appreciates in herself the qualities of

  • sporting enthusiasm, zest for life

  • ingenuity, innovation, being first

  • muscular fitness, speed, dominance, battle-ready

  • competition and pursuit of the prize

  • An attractive head, especially the forehead

  • heat, blood, birth, fleshly vitality

  • internal combustion and fire

  • military and police camaraderie;

  • well-designed and balance-weighted machines, particularly weapons, engines, explosives, missiles, guns


In a husbandly nativity, shukra-Mesha may prefer a feminine partner with Meza traits =

  • a boyish figure, usually narrow-hipped with slightly broader shoulders

  • enjoys athletics, is competitive, and muscularly strong (not large physique, but sinewy and strong)

  • plays to win at sport; not an observer

  • prefers a more physical, even warrior-like, approach to love-making

  • self-directed, independent personality

  • has her own source of treasury via self-owned business

  • favoring colors of blood-red and black

More details about taste-in-partners can be derived from knowing the two bhava which Shukra activates both (1) from lagna and (2) from Chandra.

Shukra-Mesha can be problematic within a husbandly nativity. Shukra = kalatrakaraka. The spousal character may feature Mesha traits of competitiveness, boyishness, adolescence, sporting vitality, and a taste for winning.

Naturally, this partner seeks dominance, often at a physical level. The woman may be stronger than the man, faster, more sporting, more physically responsive, and more instinctual. She may be a better dancer, better climber, better skier, better athlete. She may win most battles within the partnership and she may be impatient of his weaknesses.

Typically, this partner wants the u [Shukra] to win [Mesha], not just herself. She may push, prod, provoke her partner while trying to bring out the winner in him. If he is self-confident the alliance can be a highly energetic success. A husbandly figure with low-power Surya or weak Mangala can feel dominated this hot-blooded nymphr.

Husbandly nativity with Mesha Shukra in context of a Kumbha indriya-lagna ++ Simha Chandra.

  • Husband-figure mayenjoy the company of womenfolk with Mesha traits, and in particular the feminine companion are likely to exemplify the two domains = 4 + 9, which Yogakaraka Shukra commands from Kumbha indriya-lagna .

  • Her gracious presence contributes to Shukra-Mesha 's material enjoyment of home and world travel; likely she has a robust education.

  • From the Simha Chandra+ bhratru-pati-3 ++ karmesha-10 Shukra is less easy. The husbandly figure can be predicted to face challenges from The wifely figure's siblings (3) Her commercial undertakings (3) may compete for her attention. If Shukra is compromised, effects of 3 may include the drain of losses from education or purchase of a too-luxurious home.

  • Nevertheless, there are 10th-amsha benefits from her ability to raise his social rank in their community ++ pleasure from dignity of married status.


Pleasure Stimulators [Shukra]

  • sensual pleasure from muscular, athletic and competitive behaviors,

  • physical or primarily self-focused love relationships

  • proactive negotiations toward contract agreement

  • loving actions involving the head, skull, flesh, blood

  • seeing the colors dark red, fire red, and black

  • sensual innovations, inventions, birth, being first

  • physical sports activity with the beloved

Dislikes, distaste, disdain

  • Kanya = 6th from Mesha

Shukra-Mesha prefers simple, direct, independent, competitive, self-motivated action. Dislikes disagreement [Kanya] and will take physical action to avoid disagreeable conditions.

Dislikes any type of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (physical, social, emotional).Would prefer to avoid exploitation, litigation and accusatory discourse (6) whenever possible.

Dislikes servants, the unmarried condition [Kanya] and the mother's relatives.

Rather than enter into the complex, unpleasant, and inharmonious discourse of marital problem-solving, the Mesha-Shukra prefers direct action of physical movement. Shukra-Mesha usually prefers to simply move on to the next marital relationship.

Unless Kanya subha-graha are present, for example an [uchcha-Budha] Mesha-Shukra's aesthetic dislike of marital argument often results in walk out or run away.

This one prefers to move forward quickly after the competition has ended. For nativities that show additional pointers to multiple, possibly impulsive, marriages , shukra-Mesha can be an exacerbating proactive factor.

  • Seven Year Itch 1926-1962 Marilyn Monroe = 3 consecrated unions + 3 divorces, before age 36

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 artist Dennis Hopper [contractual-bargaining Bharani-3] [Shukra-7 parivartamsha Mangala-8] 5 consecrated unions + 5 divorces

  • Layla 1945- guitarist Eric Clapton [collaborative-managing Aśvini-3] [Budha-yuti-Shukra] 4 marriages = 2 consecrations + 2 love-unions with children
