Exotic [and perhaps notorious] qualities of the love partners

  • Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau * most well known for his positive moral impact upon the abolition of slavery ++ his gifted literary descriptions of the beauty of nature. HDT's personal relationships were unconventional. HDT never married. He was said to have had amorous relations with ladies in contemporary philosophical circles. Also, there is some implication from modern scholarly research that his romantic interests may have included some young gentlemen, which would be especially consistent with HDT's naturally unbridled Chandra in Arudra-Orion

Taste for unusual or forbidden elements in the aesthetics of art and design

trusts, contracts, promises, partnerships have high permission to experience connection; may be over-expanded past conventional limits.

Exotic appetites of the physical body = addictions, extraordinary pleasures

Kalatra-Dosha Rahu-Mesha-Arya yuti [Shukra-Mesha] yuti [uchcha] Surya-10

Jefferson played an enormously influential role in shaping the government [10] of the newly conceived republic of the United States of America. In particular, Jefferson is associated with the glorious phrase "all men are created equal". [Shukra, equality] Like most financially privileged colonial planters of his day, Jefferson owned dozens of slaves who serviced his elegant household, his horses, and his tobacco fields. After his wife Martha's death, Jefferson [age 44] started a long, passionate relationship with the younger half-sister of his wife Martha, a slave named Sally Hemings [age 14] who bore him six children. However, even on his deathbed, the extraordinary pride of [uchcha] Surya-yuti-Rahu ruled the scene and Rahu-yuti-Shukra showed the advocate of equality to be an impostor [Rahu]: Jefferson did not emancipate Sally. His Rahu and his Shukra are less than one degree apart.

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud has a similar arrangement Shukra-yuti-Rahu + [uchcha] Surya-6. Freud's pioneering [Mesha] theories of forbidden sexual primacy upset the moral and scientific indoctrination of several generations of social regulators, and while he maintained a dignified professional facade, he was conducting extramarital relationships with women [Shukra] throughout his life.

In a husbandly nativity, the wife-partner may be a being of amplified visual beauty, Yet, the marriage contract may be over-reached in order to expand the entitlements to female company.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy [uchcha] Meena-Shukra-yuti-Rahu [1] . TK's first wife was a strikingly attractive fashion model. During the marriage both partners became practicing alcoholics [Shukra]. TK's high permission to explore the world of feminine offerings was well known.

Obsessive or exotic pleasuring behaviors

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] in medical Aśvini. Famed for his revolutionary [8] treatments for [purportedly, Rahu] sexual neuroses, Freud smoked cigars so passionately that his hands were permanently stained yellow from tobacco. SF died of mouth and jaw cancer. In disregard for the taboo on suicide, SF exited the earthly vale via physician-assisted suicide.

Rahu + [uchcha] Shukra provides extraordinarily high levels of permission [Rahu] to enjoy all pleasures to excess.

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson * Shukra-yuti-Rahu in camouflaged-bhava-8. LBJ was legally married to Ladybird Johnson. At a time when divorce was political suicide, LBJ's contemporaries reported no talk of divorce. Yet, LBJ's amorous adventures were legendary. He boasted of his many liaisons with women of many ranks, in many places, in many settings - especially in business offices. He specialized in secretaries [Mithunaya].

Boundary-bending, taboo-challenging, opportunistic events for women

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding was an outspoken supporter of women's suffrage. Despite bitter opposition, Harding championed the vote for women. The 19th Amendment became law in 1920, during WGH's administration.

Passion for Diplomacy , Negotiations, Equity, Advocacy, Civil Rights, Fairness, Women

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Martial Law Indira Gandhi [6] was a skilled negotiator with partners from a wide variety of castes and classes. [Mūla] Rahu-6 connotes a particular skill with adversaries, military, criminals, and exploiters.

In particular he maintained a secret party-betraying alliance with his supposed political adversary, POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon.

Pleasure Taking Risks and Pursuing Adventure

Attracted to partners of exotic or passionate or taboo qualities.

In a husbandly nativity, the wifely figure may hails from a social class or religious culture that is different from one's own upbringing.

One's preference for this wife may contradict the wishes of one's parents or conflict with the social folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people. She may be be of a culturally inappropriate age

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley had Rahu [passionate] + Shukra [relationships] . Crossing a cultural boundary, the woman who eventually became his wife was 14 when their relationship began. [They married legally when she was 22.]

or ethnicity or race

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson was deeply involved with -- yet never married -- the woman who bore him six children. TJ's second wife, avowed through the births of their children, was Sally Hemmings. She was the younger half-sister of his deceased wife Martha. Being of one-quarter African ancestry, Sally was legally a quadroon slave.

or from a different religious background

  • Top Gun 1962 cinema producer Tom Cruise 's several wives have never shared his passion for his sacred doctrine

Rahu amplifies any graha He contacts whether by proximity or by drishti. If Shukra occupies a favorable rashi, the wife may enjoy an exceptionally beautiful or magnetically attractive appearance. It is not unlikely that the wifely-companion [Shukra] is also obsessed with her appearance

  • The wife of Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley * Graceland 1945- drama-homeware Priscilla Beaulieu Presley was so concerned with her appearance that she underwent a sadly disfiguring cosmetic surgery

The first marriage at least = Rahu-boundary-breaching Obsessive choices of spouse may over-ride one's common sense. Whether ceremonial or established through the birth of a child. additional avowed alliances may be more balanced [Shukra] compared to the first union.

  • Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs * two marriages. 1st = Rahu-Mula * 2nd = Shukra-Uttarāṣāḍha

Tends toward impulsive or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting relationships and attitude toward contracts

In a husbandly nativity, the person in the role of wife-1 is prone toward expedient behaviors.

Shukra receives drishti of Rahu * similar to Shukra-yuti-Rahu, but slightly less intensely exotic less culturally mixed barrier-bending, taboo-twisting effect

Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr

POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton [Kuja-yuti-Shukra] [nīcha] [1] drishti from Rahu-9 ideology, worldview, convictions

Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 also provides a similar effect to Shukra-yuti-Rahu

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich * Rahu yuti yuvati-pati-7 Shukra

Marriage alliance and contractual partnership * a springboard to higher social rank and privilege.

Rahu + Shukra or Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 * a similar effect to the force of graha in classroom-6, the 12th-from yuvati bhava, the house of alliances.

  • Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 * the lord of Contracts and Agreements * Inability to commit to a person, a contract, a project, an goal. Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 typically believes that" rules are made to be broken" because higher spiritual values force abandonment of the contract. Rahu bhukti may signal the timing of dissolution of agreement.

  • Graha in bhava-6 can possess agency of loss of contract, loss of balance, loss of partnership, loss of mutual benefit and inability to achieve mutual understanding. Blaming and accusations are Typically, the outcome of this house.

Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 or Shukra in addition to the presence of graha in bhava-6 should predict a lifetime of inability to establish emotionally satisfying partnerships.

the native may perceive oneself as being very well aware of how to craft agreements and the native will certainly be involved in continuous attempts to make deals and establish alliances.

However, the overall result when a Rahu + alliance karaka [Shukra or yuvati-pati-7 ] combines with the gravitational pull of graha in classroom-6 is a heavy weighting toward quixotic dreaming about the ineffable and unobtainable partner [Rahu] along with psychological resistance to equality in partnership [6] and attraction * akarshana * to unusual [and usually also inappropriate] partners [Rahu + Shukra] . Such a nativity is bound to try and try and try again - with little or not satisfaction - due entirely to one's own peculiarities.

Shukra * 6/8 to Rahu.

Social conflict as a result of inappropriate relationship attraction [Shukra] to a foreigner, one who is a taboo-breaker, who looks or behaves in an exotic way, one who deals in vulgar or forbidden substances. During Shukra/Rahu period, it is natural to be frightened of negative consequences from the beloved, such as debt or disease. However, if Rahu's ruler is strong, this conflict can be overcome by cultural education.
