Budha-Meena [nīcha] yuti Mangala-Meena

  • competitive communications
  • scripted actions
  • investigation
  • energized messaging
  • forceful signals
  • proactive announcements
  • dynamic reporting
  • impatient conversations
  • potential for sexualized messaging
  • penetrating explanations
  • direct instruction
  • signals forward action
  • pioneering movement
  • outspoken opinions
  • invective
  • talkative brother-figures

outgoing force joins messaging signal

micro-aggressions, verbal sniping, brief repeating criticisms, snide comments

  • Budha and Mangala are not mutually friendly.
  • Budha sees Mangala as a sama-graha * neutral.
  • -yet-
  • Mangala intensely dislikes Budha. Kuja sees Budha as a satru-graha * enemy.

This pair functions more neutrally when Budha is stronger than Mangala.

when militant Mangala is stronger than babbling Budha, may attain qualities of vicious verbal attack

May attain quality of nastiness when Mangala occupies Mula [disregard for consequences] or Aśleṣa [passive-aggressive]

bhava-1 [Kuja Dosha for alliance-1] verbally articulate personality whose favorite topic of discourse is often oneself. Competes with all Uthers. Tends to spar with the spouse. With sufficient distancing via foreign postings or long work assignments, the union may be sustained. No dosha for alliance-2.




bhava-3 * dynamic, articulate managers. Conversational style mixed with direct action. Moves the project forward. Can be impatient.

bhava-4 Kuja-4 typically signals a competitive climate, potentially fighting, in the childhood home. Often the parents [esp mom] are combatively verbal. [Kuja Dosha for alliance-1]

Mangala in bhava-4 * Kuja Dosha typically afflicts the first marriage due to the childhood-learned patterns of reflexive self-defense against caretakers.


bhava-5 Politics, politics, politics. Pursuit of Romance.


Budha [svabhava]. Warrior Kuja thrives in battleground-6 .

Quarrelling. Winner of bitter administrative conflicts, energized logical battles. Words-as-Weapons. Verbal skirmish. Aggressive complaint. May be a fighter against labor injustice, a master of skillfully crafted argument to defend the disadvantaged.

Succeeds in criminal defense, sparring on behalf of the accused, breaking contracts, dissolving agreements, weakening previous legal judgments.

For Kuja in either Aśleṣa or in Mula, injuriae contumeliam addere = adding insult [Budha] to injury [Angarika]

In Mula, yogakaraka Kuja can be willing to destroy everything in order to triumph over His adversaries ++ Budha generates a VRY [Vimala Yoga]. Accusatory squabbling with physicians, employees, servants.

May win fierce battles, yet lose the war.


Aggressive bargaining, wheedling. Legal mentality [Budha] combines with competitive style [Kuja] in relationships [7]. /The best defense is a good offense./ [Kuja Dosha for alliance-2]



accusation of secret aggression, warning of impending attack

  • Methodism 1703-1791 preacher John Wesley + Shukra [[nīcha] Kuja]

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy + Surya

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 artist Dennis Hopper + Surya * Mangala-8 parivartamsha Shukra-7 * a consistent narrative throughout DH's 5 marriages and 5 divorces was serial accusation of secret [8] criminal aggression. With some variations, the same complaint of intent to perpetrate hidden crimes [8] was lodged against each wife. [DH suffered from clinical paranoia.]



bhava-10 Often a dynamic leader-orator. Seeks to dominate other leaders. Iconic representative of war and conquest. Warning of threat to the State, there may be sloganistic rationalization of war.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler + Shukra-yuti-Surya- uttama * Ruchaka Yoga * warnings about crimes against the State, rationalization of war

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson + Chandra + Surya-yuti-Guru * discussion of Vietnam war strategies. Much of LBJ's public discourse [10] rationalized [Budha] war [Kuja]. Subtext = commerce in weapons [Kuja] manufacturing and military supply [Budha].


bhava-12 potential for the spiritually attuned practitioner to develop skills in psychokinesis [mind-over-matter] and other clairsentiently guided healing modalities

[Kuja Dosha typically afflicts the first marriage] due to patterns of invisible sexual pursuit

  • Mormon Church 1805-1844 Golden Plates Joseph Smith [Kuja-yuti-Budha + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] [12] ++ [Mangala-12 parivartamsha Guru-11] A very complex character, JS performed legendary private healings.

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi + Shukra = via prayer, summoning strength to overcome enemies [Mangala] via words [Budha]

  • UK-Duke-Edinburgh 1921-2021 Philip Mountbatten was known for making snide comments about foreigners [despite himself being a foreigner]


Start-ups, entrepreneurial energy, aggressive argumentation

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates helped initiate [Mangala] the new information economy * Kanya logical argumentation, Budha programming

Speech style is vigorous, dynamic, energetic, and competitive. May be very effective in speaking via actions.

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon known for his bombastic speeches

In Kanya, [uchcha] Budha is stronger

Fact-finding missions + pushes into information fields + investigative journalism

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates [uchcha] Budha-7 + analytical Kuja-Kanya. WG aggressively defended his mega corporation against US-government anti-trust accusations

In Mesha, Kuja is stronger

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler + [Mangala-yuti-Surya] -10 = aggressively urged his nation to war. AH championed the final solution [Budha, reasoning] = outright murder of all those with impure blood [Mesha, blood] . Millions were murdered [Kuja] on his orders [Budha] before he finally killed himself.

When both Budha and Kuja are dominated by diplomatic Shukra

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi spoke most effectively via action of protest fasting. The Mahatma spoke vigorously about actions to initiate [Kuja] social justice [Shukra].

Expressive output when overly urgent may become aggressive, very direct and assertive. This combination naturally expresses the masculine-energy of sexual pursuit and conquest.

In Mesha-2 = values, speech, teeth, knowledge of history

  • Speech style of POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy shows the restraint of Shani drishti + the taboo-boundary-challenging, political, entertainments, entitled excitement of Rahu-5 drishti.

In Kanya-7 = education, foundations, basics, stability, security, shelter

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates * Budha = uttama and in kendra-7. Speech delivery is aggressive and critical, but hyper-accurate in detail and generally convincing. His philanthropic focus has been on foundational support [7 = 4th-from-4th] for medical [Kanya] and educational [4] stability in the most critically [Kanya] impacted sectors - the very poor and the very marginalized [Kanya].

In Mithunaya, verbal and active in communications, project management, administration, manufacturing, teamwork. Often a capable public speaker, announcer, news-reader.

  • UK-Duke-Edinburgh 1921-2021 Philip Mountbatten has Budha + Kuja in Mithunaya-12. Budha = bhratru-pati-3 announcements and Kuja vidya-pati-5 ceremony-politics also karmesha-10 iconic public roles. PM = an energetic speaker! He delivered a vigorous average of 500 speeches per year for charitable causes after ending his naval [Mangala, military] career. Both his language and the intended audience are focused upon young people due to Mangala-yuti-Budha-Mithunaya. Of course Prince Philip has also gotten himself into polarizing catalysis with words, due to the rather fast-shooting and aggressive potential of Budha-yuti-Mangala in any rashi, but especially in alacritous Mithunaya.

  • POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan [Somana-yuti-Surya] [Kuja-yuti-Budha] [3] expert communications manager, event planner, travel scheduler, meeting organizer. NDR played a dominant and decisive role in Whitehouse administration [3] when her dementia-suffering husband became unable to conduct executive duties.

In Mula, very complicated

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon [Kuja-yuti-Guru] + [Surya-yuti-Budha]. Precise conjunction of Budha-Kuja at 7 degrees of Dhanus [Mūla]. Nixon was originally hailed as a "hawk" stalwart [Kuja] who promised to win the un-win-able war. Then he changed his military-political rhetoric to "peace with honor". Then he was impeached for crimes of burglary and tax evasion committed while holding the nation's highest office. The great complexity of Nixon's four graha in bhava-12 suggests that [Mūla] Kuja-12 did help him to win POTUS-37 during his Shani-Kuja bhukti, by speaking no-limits, fight-to-win hawk talk. Yet [Mūla] Budha activates Ketu-9, and Ketu resides in the career-draining 12th-from-10th. Budha made his Mangala too weak to triumph. Guru also in Mula. Nixon was impeached during the Shani-Guru chidra-dasha and received a very unpopular pardon during Budha-Budha svabhukti due to the Harsha Yoga provided by Budha.

In Kumbha, large-group proletarian sensibilities

  • Golden Girls 1934-2010 drama Rue McClanahan + [Budha-yuti-Surya] [2] * recognized for her witty [Budha] sexualized [Mangala] roles and scripts * television communications-medium outreach to the collective consciousness [Kumbha] helped to shape expanded social roles for mature women

QUOTATION Das Goravani commentary on Budha-yuti-Kuja

"Your intellect and energy have teamed up in this life.

You are not the kind of person who studies without acting,

rather what you think deep inside flows out into your actual activities.

  • This is very good for things for such activities as sports

and other engagements in life which require

good thinking joined with quick deliberate actions.

Doctors benefit from this combination, as do other professions where the person must

  • think and act on their feet."

QUOTATION Das commentary , if Mercury is aspected by Mars.

"You will have an active and fiery mind.

You may become aggressive, mentally agile and possibly argumentative.

Even if these attributes are not expressed outwardly, you will still possess this kind of energy internally.
