"This is another name for Nipuna Yoga. When Mercury and the Sun join in one Rasi, we have this yoga."
Quotation from from B.V. Raman,
Three Hundred Important Combinations. |
(BPL note: Aditya meaning eternal no-limits
an honorific name for Earth's local Sun.)
- If Mercury combines with the Sun, the combination goes under the name of Budha-Aditya Yoga.
- Highly intelligent,
- skillful in all works,
- good reputation,
- personal respect
- and surrounded by all comforts and happiness.
Generally, any planet in association with the Sun becomes combust or Astha and loses its power to do good; perhaps Mercury is an exception.
It should not be taken for granted that irrespective of the distance between the Sun and Mercury, Budha-Aditya Yoga would be present.
On the contrary, Mercury should not be within 10
degrees of the Sun to give rise to Budha-Aditya Yoga. This combination is not, of course, rare.

Smart and bright.
Budha is vulnerable to moudhya-dosha if
Professor Budha is too close to Professor Surya.
is Generally, interpreted as:
If Budha suffers asta
burn-out, one remains clever but becomes
distinctively self-focused. Literally, the mentality
(Budha) trends toward a solipsistic
expression in thought and word.
Prefers to talk about the Self, the Will, politics, drama, bright
lights, genius. Conversation is self-referential.
inter-lect-ence (the spelling changed over centr.
Inter = between, among ; lect = choose (elect,
select, intellect) ; -ence is a noun suffix. Thus
intelligence is the
empowered ability to make discriminating choices.
With Budha suffering a strong degree of
ashtangata-harana * combustion, one
may be fully intelligent (Surya) and mentally adaptive
(Budha) with verbal fluency and quick response to five-senses stimuli.
Yet, one may be somewhat handicapped in the
attempt to recognize the larger mentality at levels
beyond the self (Surya) such as the narratives of
other people, of a group, an ethnicity, a
nationality, a planet, a galaxy, and other entities
that are wider than the individual self. Likely one
would not easily comprehend the perceptions and feelings of others.
- An extreme illustration of combust-Budha is
offered in the nativity of Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler
First it must be noted that his
emotional receptivity is reduced due to
Mula-Chandra proximity to Ketu. But then
consider his Surya-Budha in Azvini-10 in very close contact. Surya
08-Mesha + ashta Budha 04-Mesha. As a
youth, Hitler studied art and architecture. As
a social leader, he reputedly
showed capacity for detailed military planning
(Budha-Mesha). He was interested in medical
consistent with Azvini. However, his messaging mode was simplistic,
consisting of short bullet-like sentences (Mangala-yuti-Budha)
Also Rahu-12 in
3rd-from-Budha. His decisions
reflected an autistic lack of humanism.(-Chandar-yuti-Ketu Dhanuzya
can be dehumanized)
The closer Budha gets to Surya, the more self-referential the native may become. One's own experience is less integrated with the experience of others.
Solipsism is not always a bad thing for highly placed social leaders, whose duties may require a "full steam ahead" level of self-confidence unimpeded by the feelings or opinions of others. But for those located in the rank-and-file, such a person may be considered rather selfish or unaware.
If Budha is more than 13/11 degrees away from Ravi, highly intelligent and helpful, youthful appearance, works well with younger people, excellent teacher if other conditions support teaching/training.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
was a career military officer who served as the top planning
strategist for decisive battles of the Allied Forces during WW-2,
including the legendary D-Day invasions. As POTUS-34, Eisenhower
spent eight years designing the worlds greatest highway system.
Budha-uttama-yuti-Surya-11 = tactical and
strategic planning for extensive large systems. The road grid
was intended and financially
justified as a military (Kanya) transport web (11). The federal interstate
highways were sized to accommodate large military tanks and
aircraft-carrying trucks. In later use, this
transportation-and-defense system became the backbone of post-WW-2
American mercantilism (Budha commerce).

Behari commentary regarding
"good for travel, changes, literary work, starting a new business, correspondence, interviews, writings and in short all those affairs in which active mind, diplomatic dealings with others, and adaptation to new and fresh surroundings or understanding are required .
A good time to plan for future. Dealings with lawyers, solicitors, Agents, literary persons will prove to be a success and advantageous.
If the Sun to be the significator, and Mercury well dignified, it is said to give great wit, learning and ingenuity.
It is the general opinion, that Mercury does not suffer like other planets by combustion, but is rather strengthened by it. Experience, however does not warrant this conclusion. the native will seldom have much propensity to learning."
[BPL, if Budha moudhya-dosha, onemay lack objectivity, and tends to "reinvent the wheel" by presuming that all one's ideas are original. One, lacks a sense of history or understanding of the accomplishments of others.]
If Mercury be the significator, the effects will be nearly the same, as Mercury imbibes the nature of the planet he is joined with. He will be addicted to boasting, and be very deceitful.
If Sun is well dignified, it is said one will acquire either riches, promotion or favor with great persons but one is generally sick in youth, liable to fevers, burns and diseases not easily cured.
If in good aspect, with Jupiter, one will be more healthy, and if the Moon be in good aspect he will seldom be remarkable for learning .
One will be intelligent, clever, famous and happy. Endowed with wealth but will have less accumulation and fulfillment of hopes. Good rank. stout and fair body.
Mercury being a mental planet and in conjunction with Sun can cause conflict between individuality and intellect or reasoning . One may not be able to use reasoning or intellect for the benefit of self.
The aspect stimulates both the mind and the will to a high degree and the energy it produces, if harnessed, can be used to the benefit of native."
Sensitive, articulate, and intelligent but perhaps somewhat
self-reflexive and unaware of the gap between one's own elevated awareness
vs. the less attuned perceptions of others. Solipsistic. Much depends on the
Archbishop of Canterbury 1950-
Rowan Williams *
* acknowledged as a brilliant poet, translator, theological scholar, and
social philosopher, Williams nonetheless alienated a portion of his
Anglican devotees via failure to translate his ideas in a bridge-like
fashion that could reach those less gifted. He saw what he saw (Surya),
he felt what he felt (Chandra), and his arguments were his arguments
(Budha). Yet few of the faithful could follow along with his brilliant
perceptions. The uttama-Chandra-Surya-Budha cluster occupies
Budha + Surya-yuti-Ketu
One is intelligent and capable of sustained mental work. Yet, speech is less articulate, perhaps incomplete or vague.
Drishti of Shani can shackle the speech delivery and cause the native to sound inarticulate unless reading from prepared materials.
In common talking, the native sounds "spacey" and disconnected from oneself. Ketu + Surya allows the native to shift identity boundaries easily, so the speech will change according to the identity engaged at the moment.
Favorable for stage-acting and other professions that require getting"in and out of character".

Das + Behari
commentary upon the triple-cluster Budha-Zukra-Surya
"You become insatiable, talkative, intent on wandering, and subjected to grief on account of the opposite sex."
El Castilo Interior 1515-1582 St. Teresa de Avila - nichha-Budha + uttama-Zukra + Surya-Meena-bhava-9. She was a tremendous wanderer, criss-crossing the dangerous byways and trails of medieval Spain at a time when women rarely travelled.
Her pious message (lagnesha-Chandra-3) was a call to women (Zukra) to liberate themselves via spiritual ecstasy (Meena). Announcing the opportunity and the method, Teresa declared the women's right to a beauty obtainable only in cloistered sanctuary of extreme poverty (she went shoe-less); profound service, and constant prayer with (not to) their "spiritual spouse" Jesu Christo.
Budha-yuti-Surya + Shani
Surya and Shani are not friendly. Duty vs. creativity = often in conflict.
One may not be allowed to say what one needs to say, at least until certain very harsh conditions are endured or highly disciplined interior rules are adopted and consistently imposed.
The divine creative intelligence of Surya, which normally pours through the
Surya-yuti-Budha pairing, is much constrained by Shani's law-and-order influence over "mouthpiece" Budha.
Social rules may compel the native to reduce one's speech to a lowest common denominator. One may need to write the truth rather than speak it; writing accommodates the slow, painstaking methods of Shani.
Strength of Budha propels a destiny to speak clearly and convincingly about
severe oppression (Shani) - spinal trauma educator and advocate

Combust graha lose their materializing strength; becoming brittle and dry from Surya's intense heat, they have less and less power to manifest physical outcomes as they get"crispier" more burned by the rays of Surya.
Professor Budha rules Logic. He suffers less and less power as He becomes more and more solipsistic because Surya the ego-membrane controls Budha's reasoning.
ashtangata Budha may experience reduced
effectiveness in the communicative behaviors such as clear and objective argumentative thinking.
Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini * zero degree of orb * Karkata. Mussolini was an impassioned speaker whose emotional evocation of homeland and peasant roots created a mass movement for supreme Italia. However, his plans fundamentally lacked reasoning, and after Italy's nationalistic (Karkata) emotion was exhausted his scheme collapsed.
This is a very common situation and should not be over-weighted. However, in general the effect = a self-reflexive mentality.
the native simply does not notice the thoughts or ideas of others. Often one appropriates the intellectual property of others due to a sincere but self-focused logic. One's interior argument says that these new ideas are entirely one's own.
Were one to look outside oneself, into the broader culture, one would likely discover that most ideas are cultural not individual, and furthermore that even the most innovative ideas are generally produced by a group of similarly trained experts (such as simultaneous inventions in two countries, or by two scientists at the same time in the same land.)
However, the native with combust Budha suffers from a self-reflexive viewpoint and the habit of looking outside the self is not developed.
* vakri, combust Budha requires three repetitions of the narrative. If both retrograde (vakri) and combust, three repetitions of a self-reflexive and self-referential narrative!
If dagdha Budha is severely
ashtangata receiving drishti from Shani,
one's failure to attribute proper credit to one's collaborators may cause
polarizing catalysis such as a lawsuit.
Otherwise: solipsism, narcissistic anxiety, and self-reflexive thinking are unfortunately quite normal.
If Budha is an uncomfortable influence e.g. for Mesha lagna, then
burnt Kumara can create a positive outcome by reducing the capabilities of a negative agent.
