Shukra-8 = pleasant appreciation of:

  • cycles of self-destruction and rebirth

  • deep exploration,

  • discovery

  • mysteries

  • the hidden and forbidden

  • the covered, occult, occluded

  • tantra = that which lies between the covers of the book

The pleasure-discoverer.

aesthetic of non-disclosure.

Loves the mysterious, penetrating, secretive, occult, transformative, shockingly emergent, and bizarre.

Shukra-Vṛścika is generally a solo operative who does not enjoy collaborative teams. The exception = one playing the husband-role will usually enjoy cooperating with the partner in the wifely-companion [Shukra]. Husband-and-wife teams may be highly successful if the couple share a delight in secrets.

  • Realm of Light 1874-1947 painter Nicholas Roerich and his dear wife Helena were a financially successful and socially well-connected couple who shared a passion for Theosophical doctrines of tantric knowledge and cosmological empowerment. Their shared delight in the unseen powers created for them a deeply cooperative bond. NR had a northern European (Altea) rubio-blond appearance attributable to Kanya-1. Whereas his wife, although she hailed from the same general gene pool, had a darker complexion attributable to his Shukra-Vṛścika. NR'ss Shukra-3 shows a wife who is a writer, documenter, and emissary. NR often claimed that two names should be signed upon each of his paintings and each of his writings, since HR played an equal [Shukra] role in developing all of NR's artworks.

One wishes to make one's own pleasuring choices and enjoy the hidden indulgence of secret knowledge.

Attracted to secret empowerments.

  • POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt * Teddy habitually drank enormous quantities of cow's milk, which he believed to be the secret power-drink of champions. He developed an overweight physique as a result.

Le Guste: a sweet taste for intense psychological inquiry and enjoys hidden sexual relationships. The lover-partner should have beckoning but forbidden qualities and an intriguing, dark appearance.

The hidden or occult relationships may be successfully concealed and normally do not disturb the facade of conventional marriage.

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods [Shukra-yuti-Chandra-nīcha] [Mangala-7 parivartamsha Shukra-1] famously enjoyed indulgent extramarital companionship (120 women, announced from judicial proceedings)

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner + [Surya-yuti-Budha] * the post-divorce autobiography of his third wife Jane Fonda detailed TT's history of undisclosed relationships.

  • POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower [Shukra-yuti-Ketu] While stationed in Europe during the high-danger days of WW-2, Supreme Commander Eisenhower reputedly enjoyed a three-year affair-du-coeur with a dark haired lover Ms. Kay Summersby. She served as his personal driver and travelled constantly with him. However, after the war was won, Eisenhower was told that he would be the next POTUS. Public morality required an abrupt severance [Ketu] of their relationship. The lady was told not to enquire. Shukra-yuti-Ketu * beheadings, disavowals, utter abandonment.

  • After the death of his first wife at his (and her) age 35 and despite having four young children, POTUS-08 Democratic Party 1782-1862 Martin Van Buren never remarried. His nativity shows two companion graha yuti Shukra-Vṛścika-5, so it may be presumed that he conducted additional partnerships in his own camouflaged fashion.

Shukra-Vṛścika seeks to partner [Shukra] with secret-holders, pursuers of the unknown, the unseen, mysterious and powerful secrets; agents of shock and sudden invasions

surgeons and psychiatrists; midwives and disaster responders; those who dislike chattiness, time-pass and mental distraction, siblings and close friendships, small-talk, writing, team collaboration, tactics, travel calendars, business administration, detailed planning and organizing ( Vṛścika = 6th-from-Mithuna).

Provides a beautiful low belly .

Enjoys physical-sexual prowess, confidential or forbidden undertakings, any type of puzzle-solving or detective sleuthing.

Brings pleasure to the work when one is cooperating with women who are sources of shocking or confidential information. These agents may be women who are financial funds managers, medical insurers, physicians handling confidential patient records, or female disaster responders.

Needles, knives, and engine repair

In the world of objects, Shukra-Vṛścika has a specially pleasant taste for sharp, penetrating tools such as knives and needles. One may enjoy embroidery work, scissor-cutting fabric patterns for sewing, and using needles for crochet and knitting. Tailoring is a Vṛścika activity which transforms the raw cloth into costumes and useful objects using scissors, needles, knives, and hole-poking motions.

There is pleasure in sharpening knives, repairing metal tools, boring into hard materials, and rejuvenating metal engines, auto bodies, and aircraft housing.

Rejuvenating beauty treatments

May display one's knowledge of the secrets of transformative healing in the guise of an often renovated appearance

Retains attractiveness due to cosmetic surgeries and secret rejuvenation techniques. May be a practitioner of tantric teachings within apparently mundane practices such as hatha yoga, for example headstand which puts a recycling pressure upon the hormonal glands at the top of the head. Beauty benefits from the application of penetrating energy such as acupuncture needles.

One prefers an aesthetic of non-disclosure and shielding . Attraction to tantric and magical skills. Secret sexual and other penetrating behaviors are perceived as sweet

masculine-figutes in particular may have a taste for highly controlled, even slightly violent, mating behaviors in the company of exotic or forbidden women

Pleasure [Shukra]

  • secretive and penetrating behaviors,

  • deep exploration, diagnosis of hidden pathology

  • detective or psychiatric inquest

  • particularly those involving forbidden sexual relationships

  • seeing the colors Onyx black and deep blood red

  • scenarios of sudden release of force

  • penetrating tools such as needles, scissors, knives, bores, and lasers

  • sharing situations of intense physical or psychological control with the beloved

Favors black, or very dark red, saturated tones in clothing and decor. (Shani is also super-dark but Shani is a very dark blue.) To understand one, think: huntsman, explorer, shaman, and the occult spaces where they dwell. Attracted to exotic, even dangerous partners and practices (depends on condition of Kuja) and rigorous initiations .

Loves rivers and flows, hot springs, spa tubs, healing waters, even hot lava. Wants the feeling of discovering a great secret, of being phoenix-reborn .

  • Tantric marriage practices.

  • Desires a psychologically penetrating, profoundlysexual spouse with exotic lifestyle and healing, transformative values.

The male with Shukra-Vṛścika will prefer a feminine partner who is

  • mystical, secretive, dark, delving, exploring, penetrating

  • intensely controlling

  • has beautiful loins

  • Tantriki, breaks taboo

  • healing nature, often explicitly sexual, surgeon, invasive therapies

  • detective, psychic, prescient

  • likes emergencies, disasters, sudden eruptions of hidden destructive force

  • likes the cycle of birth and death, midwifery, terror of unknown

  • favoring colors of blood-red, and black

  • complexion is either unusually dark or the appearance of the woman has some forbidden quality, in case of a dark male the forbidden woman may be very light

The underdeveloped male may have a taste for taboo love affairs, hidden love-making and forbidden women.

The spiritually developed male may have an intensely erotic relationship with the ishtadevata goddess that far outreaches any need for a human partner. Also other tantric partners.

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Yet, along the path of spiritual development, expect some barrier-bending, taboo-twisting moments with a very controlling lover.

For example, the male native with Vṛścika Shukra in context of a Kanya lagna and Karkata Chandra.

  • Enjoy the company of women with Vṛścika traits, and in particular the female companion may exemplify the two domains, 2 and 9, which Shukra commands from Kanya lagna. Her gracious presence may contribute to Shukra-Vṛścika 's material enjoyment of valuable goods and conserved knowledge, as well as world travel and religion; likely she will have financial skills and an international lifestyle.

  • From the Karkata Chandra+ bandesha-4 and vriddhi-pati-11 Shukra is favorable. The feminine partner is inclined to be a housewife or at least quite home-loving, Yet, she is gainful and through her the couple may enjoy an active social network. She may be an educator and she will take a strong interest in the children's education to insure their own income.

To make Vṛścika-Shukra happy, indulge them in psychological challenge and intensive tantric healing ritual. Explore the mysterious world of subconscious imagery and emotion with them. Learn the healing powers of essential oils, and arrange deep-pressure invigorating and restructuring massages.

Break taboos and take intimate risks, not only with your body but also with your heart. Support their craving for initiation into secret worlds. Praise their stores of secret wisdom and uncanny healing powers.
