Surya-Mesha [uchcha] [Kopā Avaṣṭabdhā] * Kriya * Arya * Arietis

Surya is highly empowered in the rashi of Kuja. Mangala is apprehended by Shukra as a samagraha - neutral . Shukra-Mesha has a lovely boyish slender quality and enjoyment of athletic sports. The gracious concern for others is diminished and some of Shukra's relationship sweetness suffers the burnt-sugar scent of impatience and self-orientation.

Yet, there are benefits of this combination, including a toned and muscled athletic look, usually slender hips, and adolescent sizing which grant a fashionable, sporting appeal. One may be attractive to others when wearing competitive sporting gear, dancing, and expressing the artistic, athletic, or entertaining energy of youth.

The father may be handsome, agreeable, inventive, sporting, artistic, and sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Mangala.

Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [6, medicine, conflict] in Aśvini [medicine] yuti [uchcha-Surya in Bharani-4 secrecy, discoveries] Surya is intensely hot, but Shukra-6 not ashtangata

  • In the emerging new field of psychiatric medicine [Aśvini-Rahu psychiatry] dealing with socially-taboo sexual passions [Rahu] Freud displayed a magnificent innovator's ego [Surya-Mesha] . [uchcha-Surya-6 clinical treatment] + Shukra rules 12 [bedroom, hospital, enclosure]. SSF regally confident authoritative presentation [uchcha-Surya karmesha] of his clinically proven methods = broke the taboo [Rahu] against acknowledging sexual conditions -- articularly the absolutely forbidden subject of incest. [Shukra-yuti-Rahu-6 crimes]

  • Shukra + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] [6] suggests that the wife [Shukra] may be dominated by her own father's willpower [Shukra yuti uchcha-Surya] . She may be a highly idealistic woman [Surya idealism] Wife Martha Bernays was SSF's primary co-writer and editor. She was also in collusion as the co-writer of his scientific notebooks containing the clinical data such as patients' declarations that their conditions had been corrected via Freud's methods.

  • Later, when Dr. Freud's miraculous documented therapeutic outcomes could not be reproduced by other psychiatrists, it was revealed that much of the data was fabricated by a writer of advanced literary imagination who was also remarkably sensitive to the speech patterns of educated Viennese women. [Shukra wifely figure 6, crime, misrepresentation, false claims]

  • Professor Freud's long-running affaire du coeur with his wife's younger sister who shared their home is signaled by Shukra's rulership of Chandra-yuti-Budha-7 [Budha younger siblings] . It is alleged that Dr. Freud was involved with numerous other ladies as well, including patients. Also consider the five graha affiliated with Shukra = Ketu, chandra, budha, rahu, and Surya.

POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson married a first wife who had been born into the elite class. Martha Skelton was strong-willed and idealistic; and so was Thomas.

  • Shukra in Krittika is not within the 15-degree range of ashtagata-dosha * combustion from his self-centered, heroic Surya in the first degree of Aśvini. However, shukra + Surya = amplified by barrier-bending, taboo-twisting , social-boundary-crossing Rahu.

  • After the decease of his first wife, tJ purportedly maintained a common-law marriage [Shukra] and fathered six children with his African household slave Sally Hemmings. Sally was a 'quadroon' half-sister of his deceased first wife. More specific evidence of taboo [Rahu] love relationship [Shukra] with exploited classes is found in Jefferson's 6th navamsha containing the Rahu-Shukra pair in fertile Dhanus.

[Surya-Urisha] Sthurin * Sthauros * Taurus

Surya's power is diminished in the rashi of Surya's enemy Shukra, but Shukra-Urisha gains strength in svakshetra. Feminine traits emphasized; Soft, rounded, sensuous, naicely balanced features. Looks good in meadows, pasturelands, farms and fields, forests, and in surroundings that features wines, perfumes, textiles and oils. The father may be handsome, agreeable; a banker, conservator, herder, and wealth-collector; artistic, and very sensual.

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy + [Surya-yuti-Guru-10] = considered to have won the 1960 presidential election on the strength of his handsome, confident appearance on the first television debates during his Rahu-Shukra bhukti . Unlike his opponent Richard Nixon, who looked unkempt, Kennedy appeared suave, polished and articulate on camera [Surya camera] .

Wife, wife's father, wife's step-father [bonus-dad]

  • Suave Shukra activates 3. Lifepartner Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a noted journalist [3] translator [3] and literary editor [3] .

    • JFK's Surya = 15 Rohiṇī - Aldebaran while Shukra at 24 degrees = Mrigashiras - Invaka. Shukra is just hovering on the border of moudhya-dosha . In a husbandly nativity, shukra kalatrakaraka = his feminine, receptive, attractive sensuality, his own attractiveness. In gender-polarized cultures, the feminine traits = passive or dormant for the husband, and he must manifest materially through the appearance and behaviors of his wife.

    • When Shukra-yuti-Surya in a husbandly nativity, surya can show the influence of The wifely figure's father. The father of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was known as Black Jack Bouvier.

    • Dad was a stock-broker [Surya-Urisha yuti Shukra brokerage] Dad was best known as an extravagant womanizer, gambler, and alcoholic, as indicated by the excess sensuality of Shukra-yuti-Guru that overwhelms the integrity of Surya. However, his wife's stepfather was an empowering influence as indicated by JFK's 8th-from Shukra-yuti-Surya being the politically powerful Rahu-5-Dhanus.

[Surya-Mithuna] * Jaimini * Gemini

Professor Surya is neutral toward Mithuna's ruler Budha. while Shukra experiences Budha as a mithrugraha - friendly influence.

  • Surya + Shukra-Mithuna = pleasantly friendly, talkative, clever with their hands. Usually likes to draw and write, and is often quite photogenic. Looks good and speaks pleasantly in conversational, small-group settings, team meetings. The father may be handsome, aspecialist in information-delivery, artistic, and sensual. However, the Budha-Surya pair are strictly angelic messengers

the nature and content of their message is provided by other graha via yuti or drishti.

Surya-Karkata * Karkata * Cancera * Khepra

Surya is a compatible friend to Chandra. For Shukra-Karkata, comforting Chandra is a neutral influence. Unless severely combust, surya + Shukra has softly balanced features - yet emotionally potent and willful. Looks lovely in domestic settings where they rule the roost. One's father may be handsome, agreeable, engaged in defense or protection such as military or housing, artistic, and sensual.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 singer model Whitney Houston [11] Dad was a military officer [Karkata defense] Surya-11 mutual-dristhi with Shani-5 = discipline. [Surya yuti Shukra] [11] dad was her career manager, in charge of earnings [11].

  • Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro + Budha +++ [Budha-1 parivartamsha Chandra-3] FC's dad = a handsome, wealthy, sugar-plantationist. FCs first wife was a beauty, but the marriage was brief/. The wifely figure's father complained of FC's legendary infidelities. Wife's father's influence over the wifely-companion is typical of Shukra-yuti-Surya particularly when Shukra is combust. There is a 25-degree gap between Castro's Surya at 27 degrees of Karkata in Aśleṣa - Naga, versus his Shukra = 2 degrees in Punarvasu - Yamaka Nakshatra . Surya's effects upon wife-1 = less than maximum, but FC's first wife was likely much beholden to the paternal will.

Surya-Simha * Simha * Panthera * Leonis

  • Surya *Aithaya possesses a dominating hot bright self-centeredness in this yoga which tends to overwhelm Shukra-Singha 's cool beauty. Sweet, relationship balancing Shukra may feel burned up, charred, misused for political or entertainment purposes of the ego-membrane Sun. Women with Shukra-yuti-Surya-Simha may be attracted, then "burned out" by self-promoting males with center-stage personalities. The males tend to have been long accustomed to being the brilliant center of attention [such as an only child, or a child entertainer] . By contrast, males with Shukra-yuti-Surya-Simha tend to "burn up" the women in their environment, charming but consuming and dominating with their brilliant hot personalities. If combust, shukra has no power at all in Simha. One may enjoy a charming personality [or not] but the physical appearance Typically, not display Shukra's classic beauty. Tends toward rosacea with a dry, reddish overall complexion unless other factors such as a yuti Chandra might soften or lighten the appearance. husbandly-native enjoys bright sunlight. The father may be handsome, agreeable, political, artistic, and sensual.


Para-Persephone * Virago

Professor Ata is neutral to Professor Budha, while Shukra experiences Budha as a friendly influence. Professor Shukra is weakened in nīcha. No matter how attractive Shukra-Partha may appear to outsiders, self-criticizing [Shukra-Kanya] struggles to perceive one's own beauty.

One may be mildly pretty and charming, but often some adjudged flaw in the conventional beauty such as an unusual body type or a mark on the face. Flattered in intellectual settings. Their attractiveness increases through added intelligence if Budha also joins Surya + Shukra-Kanya. Father may be handsome, agreeable, critically logical or technically gifted, artistic, and sensual.

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1-Tudor + [uchcha-Budha] [11, economics] Never a classic beauty, Elizabeth Tudor was left bald and skin-pocked by nearly-fatal smallpox. Nevertheless, she was s courted by many hopeful suitors. Her logical, tactical, and financial intelligence was said to have been radiantly evident. She was so smart that she refused to be married.

Surya-Vanika [nīcha]


Surya suffers diminished centrality in the rashi enemy Professor Shukra, but svakshetra Shukra-Vanika gains strength. Feminine traits emphasized; soft, rounded, sensuous, naicely balanced features. Looks good in small groupings and pairings, in elegant surroundings.

Surya-Tula presents graciously, often displaying a fine sense of couture, color-palette, and decorative ornamentation. Typically, ahandsome visage of paler, slightly bluish complexion relative to the gene pool.

Partnership style [Shukra] is diplomatic and decentralized. The beauty of the style [Shukra] may exceed the potency of the individual intelligence [Surya]. The father may be handsome, agreeable, diplomatic, artistic, and sensual.

Due to weakened [nīcha] Surya there may be some perceived weakness of the father, often regarding his conduct within relationships.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk + [nīcha] Surya-12. Surya-12 suggests a completely invisible indiscretion such as a conception with a slave-woman [very likely as a social reality in those times] . Polk is often reckoned as sterile because he did not produce children with Sarah. However, Surya yuti Shukra suggests a first wife [Surya having the lower degree] before Shukra representing Sarah Childress. Surya is very weak as nichha in 12, but still yuti yuvati-pati-7 and still capable of producing a union.

    Overall public strength due to yuvati-pati-7 yuti karmesha-10 . However, they spent much time living distantly due to his governance career ++ her managing their Tennessee plantations. Sarah preferred [Shukra] to have time alone for private prayer.

    Polk has a uniquely career-supportive marriage situation. [Shukra-Vanika yuti Surya-Vanika-nīcha] [yuvati-pati-7 with karmesha-10] signals a substantial public career. Bhava-7 advising contains Shani-7 dikbala in Karakamsha ruled by Shukra, suggesting that his steady, cautious adviser wife Sarah played a pivotal role in his career. Polk was generally uneasy in social situations, due partly to his Anuradha abhorrence of "wasting time" . Luckily for his career prospects, polk married the diplomatic, agreement-crafting Sarah Childress. Historians consider her to have been the main reason for his political [Surya] and financial [Shukra] success.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru = worked continuously to connect [11] the Hindu and Muslim communities in the New India. [Shukra-yuti-Surya] [Budha-yuti-Surya] [Shukra-yuti-Budha] [12, invisible diplomacy]

  • Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham [Surya-Shukra-Tula-9] = preaching, doctrine, bG core value sermon = the covenant [Shukra-Tula] is stronger than the individual willpower [nīcha] Surya]. BG married Ruth Bell Graham , whose Surya-Mriga-Vrishabha-yuti-Shukra [2] was stronger than BG's Surya. RBG's father was a devout exponent of a tradition which differed from Rev. BG's teaching. Despite her husband's celebrity ministry, rBG did not change her values to match her husband's sermons. BG's Surya-yuti-Shukra demonstrates that his wife [Shukra gains uttamasha in navamsha] remained independent in matters of personal intellect [nicha-Surya gains uttamsha in navamsha] Yet she cooperated harmoniously [Shukra] in matters of finance.

  • POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams married his cousin [3] POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams . Sensual Shukra= neutral toward Moving Mangala ruling his Mesha-Chandra while Shukra is also sending drishti into Mesha-Chandra-9. The marriage was complex, both emotionally and socially. in a husbandly nativity, Shukra-3 generally represents a sibling-like wife . His Chandra-9 shows an emotional grounding via philosophy, where he feels comfortable in the role of innovator and pioneer. Her capacity for detailed written explanations and descriptions [3] proved essential in promoting his principled ideas.

    However, it would be an unsupportable overstatement to claim that this couple agreed on all points. Readers of their storied correspondence can instantly see that Abigail thinks clearly and precisely on matters of social and interpersonal justice [Tula] such as women's rights, putting her arguments centuries ahead of their time. John Adam's Chandra-Aśvini being naturally concerned with innovation the new nation would itself lead him toward pioneering interpretations of legal justice. Abigail infused a constant dialogue of balance, equity, franchise, and fair agreements into his Mesha-style male-dominance presumptions.

    In the husband's nativity, surya-yuti-Shukra is the mark of an independent [Surya] mate who is significantly influenced by her father. Abigail Adams was shaped by her preacher and councilman father [3 council] to promote the doctrines of equality and fairness [Tula] embedded into the New England Christian sects. Abigail was a friend and counselor [Tula, shukra] to John. Yet, she was also an advocate [Tula] for the rights [Surya] of womenfolk [Shukra] and a counterbalance to John's incipient patriarchalism [9] .

    The couple endured many long separations due to his public service duties. Surya with Shukra suggests the possibility of other love interests during his years-long absences from home and potentially also during his end-of-life widowhood. She predeceased him by 8 years, and John Adams lived as a widower until his death. Abigal = Shani-yuti- Ketu in bhava-2 = no second marriage. Mrs. Adams was in frail health from the start, via rogesha-Shani-yuti-Ketu.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Rodham Clinton [nīcha-Shukra + Budha] + [Surya-Vanika-1]. Neither Shukra nor Budha suffer from the ashtagata-dosha of Surya.

  • Shukra in Vishaka occupies 14 degrees distance from Surya in Svati - Arcturus , and Shukra is not retrograde - vakri . The willpower, intellectualization and love of politics which characterize Surya + Shukra are visible.

    • randhresha-8 Surya = rogesha-6 from Chandra = often in conflict with masculine figures including her father and her husband.
    • [Surya-yuti-Budha] + Surya yuti Shukra * Physically attractive in high visibility leadership venues = svakshetra Shukra in bhava-10 + radiant Surya [dikbala] -10.
    • Yet, she has a longstanding reputation for stubborn willfulness [nīcha-Surya] and notable reluctance to compromise her ideals .


Surya is empowered in the rashi of Kuja; yet Mangala is to Shukra a samagraha - neutral . Attraction * akarshana * to danger. Shukra-Vṛścika has a sweetly seductive, dark, penetrating look which can be healing but also controlling. One looks even-tempered and handsome in exploratory and therapeutically transformative settings. Is pleased to be in company of powerful people and environments which provide shocking discoveries, explosive revelations, sudden upheavals, mysterious forces, and dangerous secrets. The father may be handsome, agreeable, secretive or mysterious, artistic, and sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Mangala.

Secret and dangerous conditions, yet maintains the entitled behaviors

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill participated in the entertainments of the entitled aristocracy, yet more focused than his privileged peers who aspired merely to a life spent playing games. Often accused of elitism. His political genius emerged during emergency conditions of war.

  • Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie had [Ketu-yuti-Shukra] + [Surya-yuti-Mangala] in Vṛścika-11. Professor Shukra is combust = 13 degrees distant from Surya,


Professor Surya apprehends Brihaspati as a friend, while Guru is to Shukra a samagraha - neutral . Shukra-Dhanus provides an expansive, sweet loveliness which often appears slightly golden, slightly plump, with an attitude that is cheerful and optimistic. Looks attractive in ideological, doctrinal, preaching and higher-educational settings.

The beauty of the teaching style [Shukra] is slightly dominated by the bright charm of the individual intelligence [Surya]. One may be a charismatic preacher. The father may be handsome, agreeable, humanistic but dogmatic, artistic, and somewhat sensual. Outcome is defined by disposition of Brihaspati.

Surya-Makara-Draco = Capri-cornus * the Goat-horn

Surya feels oppressed by His strictly lawful ruler Shani the Legislator . Surya apprehends as a satrugraha - bitter enemy.

Yet Professor Shani is Shukra's great friend. When counted from the Makara baseline * lagna, shukra becomes a yogakaraka-graha denoting success in matters of 5-creativity and 10-leadership. Thus Shukra is favored in the Shukra-Surya pairing while Professor Surya is Himself disempowered.

This yoga is generally easier to manage within a feminine nativity because Shukra has the advantage; it is also supportive generally of all Shukra-related functions such as advocacy, diplomacy, design, finance, bargaining, and contractual partnership.

Shukra-Makara-Draco often provides an attractive architecturally balanced bone structure, fair complexion relative to the gene pool, and a relationship-building personality that is socially polite and attuned to status hierarchies.

Within environments that feature conventional ornamentation and costume, in lawful practice, in large regulated hierarchies, providing status-tagged [Makara] values [Shukra] one is pleased to join agreements. Partnership style [Shukra] is lawfully contractual. The architectonic order of the style [Shukra] may exceed the potency of the individual intelligence [Surya].

The father may be handsome, agreeable, regular in habits, an appreciator of artistic design, and moderately sensual. Due to Shani-oppressed Surya there may be some perceived weakness of the father's integrity, often related to social materialism.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt [Surya-yuti-Shukra-5] combines the rulers of 2 + 9 + 12. Widely acknowledged as FDR's leading political strategist and de facto chief of communications, long-serving First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a master of press conferences, photo-ops, and a voluminous corpus of political correspondence (Shukra-5 in 3rd-from-3). She served as USA Ambassador to the United Nations. Pretending to remain properly [Makara] avowed to her long-estranged husband, aER was also a master actress [5] who convinced the American public that the presidential couple lived a conventional married life [Sravana, reputation].

Surya-Kumbha * Ghata * Aquila the Eagle

Surya's center-stage inclinations are much impeded in the web-that-has-no-center rashi of Shani-ruled Kumbha. Surya sees networker-Shani as a satrugraha - bitter enemy.

Yet Professor Shani is Shukra-Kumbha 's great friend. When counted from the Kumbh baseline * lagna, shukra becomes a yogakaraka-graha denoting success in matters of 4-lands-and-vehicles and 9-humanism-and-wisdom. Thus Shukra is favored here while Surya is disempowered, and this yoga becomes generally easier in a feminine nativity. Surprising beauty, slightly eccentric in appearance but very attractive with balanced features and a subtle electric-blue tinge to the auric field. Delights [Surya light] in the company of friends. In group-energy environments the native appears pleasantly radiant.

Surya-yuti-Shukra is pleased to join agreements with others within goal-oriented, link-regulated, social-participatory environments. The most pleasing surroundings are interlinked large assemblies and orderly economies of ideas, goods, and services. Due to the influence of Kumbha's co-ruler Rahu, one looks lovely in unusual dress, in large mixed groups, among a variety of exotic friends who share social and economic goals. The father may be handsome, agreeable, economically oriented, an appreciator of artistic design, and moderately sensual.

Women do marry their fathers as it is said, meaning that a woman's subconscious may often attract men similar to her father particularly the man who can fill the husband role.

When Surya + Shukra occurs in bhava-6, she may feel too ill to deal effectively with either husband or father.

  • POTUS-pair-06 Adams Family 1775-1852 Louisa Johnson Adams * her father's indebted financial [Shukra] situations along with his political involvements [Surya] were the salient feature of her upbringing. Dad is a complex figure due to her Surya-yuti-Budha + Shukra-yuti-Ketu in Kumbha-6. Dad's influence on her lifepath was in many ways unsavory, yet Surya-6 activates 12 granting a protective [Vimala Yoga]. Although her marriage into the famed Adams Family occurred mainly via misinformation and mistakes [6] , Louisa was never shunned [12] or imprisoned [12] in an asylum.

[Surya-Meena] * Antya-the-Whale * Piscetis * Fish

Surya sees Guru as a friend. Shukra sees Professor Guru as a samagraha - neutral.

Often one born with [uchcha] Shukra-yuti-Surya = blessed with a remarkable physical beauty. Yet, as always, additional graha in Shukra's bhava can alter the final outcome. Shukra-Meena [uchcha] often provides musical and artistic talents matching a very lovely appearance. Fair complexion relative to one's gene pool; balanced features and pronounced confidence due to Surya's happiness in the rashi of Guru. Expansive loveliness, with a golden, slightly plump, cheerful appearance. Looks handsome in artistic settings, when engaged in matters of ideology or theory [Guru]. Pleased to be in the company of politicians and entertainers [Surya] along with financiers, musicians and designer-arrangers such as diplomats [Shukra]. The father [Surya] may be handsome, agreeable, philosophically inclusive, related to an artistic muse, and very sensual.

  • POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 author Lou Henry Hoover's father was a handsome man of many trades. He found financial success in the banking sector, but only after the family moved to the beautiful Oceanside town of Monterey, California . Shukra-Meena needs a reflective, meditative environment.

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson [12, dissolution, silence] AJ was widowed age 62, only weeks before beginning his job as POTUS-07. AJ would have benefitted personally and professionally from taking a second life-partner, but seemed to have been blocked in realizing that potential. As a Euro-American slave owner, aJ had access to hundreds of silent, naameless [12] African women slaves, and it is likely that the second and third wives represented by his [uchcha-Shukra-yuti-Budha-nīcha] [voiceless] [12] and Shukra-yuti-Surya were slaves or already-married ladies, who could not legitimately marry him.

Career of Anuradha workaholic rescued by a diplomatic wife* Shukra

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk had Shukra-Vanika yuti Surya-Vanika [nīcha] with Surya being the weak karmesha-10 while a powerful [dikbala-Shani] resides in bhava-7. Dysfunctionally for a career politician, polk disliked socializing, which he considered a "waste of time" . Luckily his agreement-builder wife Sarah liked to talk [see the 2-3-cluster in her nativity] . Her advocacy for his ideas [which critics claimed were indeed Sarah's ideas] eventually earned him a trustworthy and dignified reputation.

A complex father, in complex economic times

Surya-yuti-Shukra-yuti-Budha-Kanya [uchcha]

combines the rulers of 7 + 8 + 10 + 11 + 12

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1-Tudor [Kanya Surya-11] + [nicha-Shukra-11] + [uchcha-Budha-11] [11, economic systems]

ET had a complex, difficult, yet in many ways, beneficial relationship with her notorious father England-King 1491-1547 Henry-8-Tudor .

[Surya-Kanya] Karmesha = executive leadership

By all accounts, ET was one of the most successful monarchs in British history.

  • Arts culture flourished during her 44-year reign [Shukra].
  • ET restored the national treasury [Shukra] - earlier exhausted by her volatile father King Henry
  • ET's financial wizardry, anchored through [Chandra in Bharani - Yamya-6, piracy] along with [uchcha-Budha-11, economics] was not always ethical
  • Her royal decisions [Surya] enriched the previously broke aristocracy.

Some historians accord ET the rank of best monarch ever.

Her father was both famous as a musician [Shukra] and supporter of arts [Shukra].

During his struggle with Rome, Henry-8-Tudor appropriated [Surya, self] = "prop"] vast monastery lands and cash metals held in churches. After nearly 1500 years of papal hegemony, Henry stopped Rome's tax stranglehold on Britain [Budha rules 8-taxes].

  • Henry was hailed as a hero by his English Lords.

England-King 1491-1547 Henry-8-Tudor died at age 55 from a deep-tissue wound infection from an old jousting injury

  • The infection was likely exacerbated by his diabetes [Surya with nīcha Shukra] and the extremely unsanitary conditions of the era [nīcha-Shukra] .
  • Surya karmesha rules ET's Rahu-10 = her father's autocratic entitlements
  • Surya + the rulers of 7 + 8 + 10 + 11 + 12 show the very public nature of his life.

Physical body-shell is generally handsome and complexion somewhat more pale [Shukra] than average for the gene pool

Both husbandly-companion and wifely-companion nativities with Shukra + Surya are typically handsome in appearance. Even when other factors such as bodily girth [Guru] or irregularities [Rahu-Ketu] affect the appearance, one displays an attractive arrangement of facial features, colorings, textures et-cetera.

Exception to this rule = when the daityaguru Shukra joins Ravi in Simha rashi, particularly when Shukra suffers moudhya-dosha . Then Shukra's cool attractive beauty is overwhelmed by Surya's hot, masculine, idealistic self-assertion and the physical shell may produce a peculiar mottled high-red or high-white tone.

Shukra in bhava-1 + Surya in bhava-1

The husband-role-player is attracted to Wifely-companions who are brilliantly influenced by their fathers' willful character and political ideals.

When Shukra-yuti-Surya occurs in the radical lagna, these wife-types have much ability to materially define the husband-role-player's ideals and social identity.

[Shukra in bhava-3] + Surya in bhava-3

Bhava-3 = commerce, writing, reports, handcraft, management, meetings, schedules, instruction, explanation, evangelism

"O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey has Shukra + [Surya-yuti-Budha]+ Rahu-Makara -3 [communications media] .

Shukra at 15-degrees of Makara-Śrāvaṇa - Hari "the listener" suffers 100% moudhya-dosha .

  • Although Surya is weakened in Makara suggesting that her father was not a powerfully entitled person [he held a working class rank] nevertheless Oprah's father was a responsible man [Makara] and most importantly he was the central parent in her life.

  • Her extraordinary romantic idealism and dominant personal willfulness [Surya] would likely make the day-to-day petty negotiations of mundane marriage appear as rather uninteresting compared with her personal charisma.

  • Rahu-3 [desire to communicate] has a great deal of social-leadership influence in Oprah's nativity, because Rahu's Professor Shani occupies 10th-from-Rahu in [uchcha] Tula-12. Therefore, she has chosen a path of high profile social leadership and corporate executive rather than the more commonplace role of wife.

Savitri 1872-1950 revolutionary poet Shri Aurobindo

  • Shukra combust in mystical magical Magha - Regulus. When Surya and Shukra join in the rashi of Simha, partnership-oriented Shukra is often overwhelmed by the self-centered politics-and-celebrity oriented Surya. Yet, the regal energy of Magha indicates an astral-traveling firelight priest. After a burst of volatile political activism incited by the Chandra-[Mūla] 7 during Chandra mahadasha, the Magha spiritual programming overtook his political agenda. His lifestyle quieted, and AAG began multiple decades of inspirational, devotional writing.

marriage settles into a pragmatic political relationship

The Shukra-Surya pair not only contains moudhya-dosha Shukra, but also the ruler of this pair is [nīcha] Shani-6.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt conducted a number of clandestine romantic relationships while governing the United States during 12 exceptionally volatile years, including the Great Depression and World War-2.

  • Surya = 18 Śrāvaṇa + moudhya-dosha Shukra = 15 Śrāvaṇa. Sravana's priority is reputation, in bhava-5 politics, romance, children. FDR married his entitled, political, idealistic cousin Eleanor Roosevelt Shukra-5. Their marriage intimacy ended just after the birth of their 5th live child, when FDR fell in love with AER's private secretary.
  • However, shani-nicha-8 casts a powerful social-regulatory drishti into Surya-Shukra-5. The general public never realized that first FDR, and then Eleanor, enjoyed numerous affairs-du-coeur.

Shukra = almost completely combust. Shukra-ruled phenomena such as feminine-partners, wifely-figures, legal contracts, diplomatic arrangements, and promises of all kinds, are burned by Surya's self-centeredness.

In a husbandly nativity, surya near to the combust Shukra would suggest that the wife may have a sensually unbalanced father. When FDR's wife Eleanor was eight years old, her father scandalously impregnated his house-servant. Dad then died in a sanatorium for sufferers of profound alcohol poisoning. Long before her marriage to FDR, Eleanor's trust in men [Surya] was burned by her father's fate. Yet, she developed a tremendous social idealism [5] that was widely admired [5] in the depression-and-war shocked world.

FDR turned to several women for romantic love and sensual pleasure, including long-time partner Lucy Mercer who was with FDR when he died.

FDR's ashta-harana Shukra-yuti-Surya pairing accepts social-ordering 10th-drishti of [nīcha-Shani-Mesha-8] Shani owns and aspects Shukra-Surya, and His sober drishti helps to curtail the incontinence of low-trust, oath-breaking, combust-Shukra.

FDR's unfaithfulness to his marriage vow was camouflaged [8] from the naive public . Although his intimate relationships showed some corruption, fDR's commitment to the nation was absolute. He died in office, from exhaustion, during some of the darkest, bloodiest years of modern western history.

Shukra in bhava-4 + [Surya in bhava-4] In a husbandly nativity, shukra-yuti-Surya promises a very capable diplomatic and gracious wife who is nevertheless independent minded and decisive person who will do things in their own way. Long separation between the marriage partner are often caused by public responsibilities but also represent a need for psychic space between the partners.

Shukra acquires [dikbala] in bhava-4, carrying auspice of a well-managed home where a climate of agreement generally prevails.

Agriculture, regular meals, customary foods and festivals, village life, old ways, old-time religion, customary life rhythms, routines, wheel-ruts, wagons and vehicles of transport, schooling, parenting, shelters, foundations, basis of life, seasons, old age, retirement, burial

[Shukra in bhava-5] + [Surya in bhava-5]

UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill [5]

bandesha-4 Surya-Vṛścika in bhava-5 brought Mr. Churchill a strong expression of patriotic alliance via politics. Shukra takes no drishti; the situation is uncomplicated. Despite many long separations caused by mutual social duties, churchill was legally married only once, and his elderly wife did not remarry when he died.

All residing in bhava-4 =

  • Shukra does not suffer from moudhya-dosha

  • Shukra-yuti-Shani-Tula = two planetary strong friends

  • According to this constellation for a husbandly nativity, the wifely figures would be persons of extraordinary grace under pressure. Svati - Arcturus = often a small limp or irregularity in the gait.

  • All three of the predicted wifely-companions would have excellent diplomatic capabilities [Tula]. Surya-yuti-Shukra = first wifely-companion has a dominant father [Surya-nīcha-bhanga]. wifely-companion may have adjusted then promoted her own ideals [Surya] in order to accommodate her father's will.

  • [uchcha-Shani-Tula] [4] = educational, protective, and maternal attributes of all three wifely persons. Due to [4] in the ever-recycling, evolving 8th-from-Chandra, aperpetual 6/8 tension defines emotional interactions with wifely figures. Their stability may be felt [Soma] as an imbalance which thwarts the realization of Chandra's highest life-principles.

Such enduring wifely figures would be associated with disciplined, persistent work for social justice [Shani-Tula].

Shukra in bhava-11 + Surya in bhava-11

The husband-role-player is attracted to Wifely-companions who are dominated by their fathers' willful character and political ideals.

When Shukra-yuti-Surya occurs in the radical lagna, these wife-types have much ability to materially define the husband-role-player's ideals and social identity.

TT= married + divorced three times.

  • lifelong reputation for promiscuity
  • He is also reputed for philosophical idealism, ecological political activism, + bankrolling of large-scale [11] environmental protection initiatives

Turner's lifepartner-3, Jane Seymour Fonda = a distinguished and talented personality. JSF's life has been strongly and publicly influenced by her famous father [Mūla-Surya-2] the celebrated thespian Henry Fonda.



Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham [9, patronage, preaching]


POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt [5, politics]

Moudhya * ashtangata * asta-arana - combust
  • within 9 degrees proximity to Surya


if Shukra = retrograde

  • moudhya-dosha = within 14 degrees of Surya

Shukra suffers moudhya-dosha = ashtangata harana = combust = within 9 degrees proximity to Surya

As Shukra approaches closer and closer to Surya, the daitya-guru experiences an erosion of power of material manifestation of Shukra's trusting, matching, balancing, yoking behaviors.

Shukra = minimally combusted "crispy" at a distance of nine degrees away from burning Surya, moderately combusted at a distance of 4-5 degrees from Surya, completely combusted at a distance of 0-1 degrees from Surya.

[However, shani can provide effective compensation for the weak trust factor of a ashtangata Shukra, see below.]

Shukra will be obliged to produce the results of His bhava and His drishti upon the astral planes, causal planes, or other dimension. The material, sensual, tangible effects are minimized.

Reduces influence of the aesthetic of balance during the [daily] partnership negotiations. Generally unsuitable for business partnership; more oriented to self-directed business [Surya].

In Tula, sParkling Surya gets nichha status. Surya becomes indecisive due to Shukra's pressure to harmonize and align with others. Corruption of individual integrity is enhanced when the bright intelligence [Surya] is compromised by agreements with others who are more willful.

  • Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham - Surya-yuti-Shukra-2 ++ asta-Shukra. BG received most of his early capitalization [2] from Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst. Hearst supported Fascism. Hearst wanted more political propaganda injected into BG's sermons. In particular, Hearst needed BG's sermons to encourage folks to blur the line between church and state so that patriotic Americanism and Protestant Christianity became indistinguishable [fascism = all bound together, fascia = bindings.]

May approach the topics of marriage alliance, arrangement-making, deal-brokering, and legal contracts with some trepidation.

BPL: if the combust Shukra also lacks favorable drishti, this condition can give an unbalanced autistic effect within relationships.

With no malice aforethought, the native is simply not aware of the needs or expectations of the partner. The partner may feel"invisible" .

the masculine-nativity with asta Shukra may waste a good deal of time looking for a"divinely perfect" [Surya] feminine partner. As with Shukra-Simha, one expects marriage to provide ideal conditions for the promotion of one's own ego-membrane interests. One may be simply unable to identify the interests of the Other, and proceed on the working assumption that the Other has no interests and will not develop any.

relationships with womenfolk are difficult in general as one may attract highly egocentric or uncooperative ladies into his life, both professionally and personally. Often the spouse is reclusive; her husband outshines herr.

If Shukra is an uncomfortable influence e.g. for Meena indriya-lagna , then moudhya Shukra can create a positive outcome by reducing the capabilities of a negative agent.

; QUOTATION ~~ Behari commentary = Surya conjoined with Venus

"If Venus is combust, the native will be extravagant,

and an attachment with persons whose affairs are always in a deranged or ruinous state,

and his property will be continually wasted in retrieving them."

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari

" ... if Sun is the significator, and Venus, well dignified, makes the native soft and effeminate, fond of the fair sex, and one's greatest ambition will be to enjoy their company.

  • If Venus is combust , the native will be extravagant, and an attachment with persons whose affairs are always in a deranged or ruinous state, and his property will be continually wasted in retrieving them.

  • If Venus is ill dignified, he will keep company with none but an infamous woman who will speedily bring him to ruin.

  • If Venus is the significator , he will be proud and prodigal,

  • if Sun is ill dignified, extremely mean and poor withal, generally short lived, liable to consumption, fever and full of crosses and vexation."

Shukra = womenfolk in general., relationships in general, social contracts, and the role of the wife

" Husband" and "Wife" are social roles --- not anatomical identities.

Thus wife-1 = the person who fulfills the balancing, adjusting, beautifying and harmonizing roles in the alliance. A wifely-companion may possess any sort of anatomical equipment = male, female, mixed, naeither.

The essence of the wifely-companion is equity-seeking, balancing adjustability which permits sustaining of the relationship [in the Old English, 'wiffe' = 'bread-maker'] .

  • For a husband, shukra represents wife-1 persona, relationships with womenfolk in general. [sisters, women colleagues, neighbors] and also the quality and quantity of the marriages.

  • For a wife, shukra represents the quality of peer relationships with partners of either gender, relationships with womenfolk in general. [sisters, women colleagues, neighbors] and also the quality and quantity of the marriages.

  • ** note that Mother is represented by matrikaraka Chandra. Mother is not Shukra.

When Shukra suffers moudhya-dosha , wife-1 role-holder [Shukra] is likely to be ambivalent regarding the marriage promise and may decline the legal contract.

Shani can mitigate combust Shukra's ambivalence

If yuvati-pati-7 is strong, or dignified Shani in bhava-7, or a Shani drishti upon Shukra-yuti-Surya coming from Shani can impose extra anti-movement structure upon combust Shukra's tendency toward weakened trust in partnership, thus limiting the range of one's mobility outside of the contractual union.

The inherently weak faithfulness to contract and"burned out" low-trusting behavior of ashtangata Shukra in 9, 1, or 4 may be substantially corrected by drishti from a dikbala Shani-7 .

If Shukra occupies bhava-9, bhava-1, or bhava-4 WHILE receiving drishti of the dignified Shani-7 is ALSO occupying Makara or Kumbha, near ly all of the human-partnership weakness of Shukra may be corrected.

Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

When Shukra-yuti-Surya, shani's drishti also affects Surya. Thus Surya's / burning / influence expressed via the father's dominating willfulness is also reduced by a Shani drishti to the Shukra-yuti-Surya pairing. Shani drishti results in more impact of Shani's narrative of social duty, and less impact by the heat of the father's egocentric willpower.

  • For example, one whose deeply combust Shukra accepts the drishti of a strong Shani would find that their choice of life partner would be dominated by their father's preferences. But, if Shani offers some correction. Then the choice of life partner [Shukra] is also pressured by social duty concerns such as profession and public respect [Shani]. The final outcome displays two contradicting sources of pressure - the father's will vs. The social order - resulting in a somewhat milquetoast personality whose relationships are dictated largely by social expectations .

Also Shani drishti to Shukra can make the life-partner elder to oneself. The stronger Shani's influence, the more elder the partner. Thus the maximum drishti from Shani upon a combust Shukra-Kumbha-Makara could result in a significantly elder partner who would likely have a socially respected profession.

However, the burnt-sensuality behaviors of combust Shukra such as stinginess and anhedonia [shunning of pleasure] can be much reinforced by drishti of a strong Shani! Peer contracts, may be defined by their shared work duties.

Shani drishti imposes a narrative of social duty. Resulting from drishti of dignified Shani, naative despite their self-orientation may become competently socially responsible in contract dealings, once a clear understood deal has indeed been agreed. Terms of promise must be lawful and simple [Shani] for Shani drishti to have the stabilizing"no movement" effect.

Shani-7 or Shani drishti to the Shukra-yuti-Surya pairing = loyalty to the social regularizing function [Shani] of interpersonal alliances, even while the ashtangata Shukra indicates relatively weak trust in the individual partner.

cintamani * mani * money , wealth, art, aesthetics

Shukra dhanakaraka = luxury, material wealth, artistic balance and design, sense pleasures

Shukra combust = luxury, pleasure in spending money, pleasure in delicious sensual pleasures = "burned out" .

Resulting aesthetics may include general stinginess, frugality, disfavoring embellishment, shunning pleasure [medical term = anhedonia] . The more combust is Shukra, the more stingy the native. If combust Shukra receives the drishti of Shani, potential for"Mean Mr. Mustard" chronic conservation behaviors.

Social arrangements [Shukra]favor the ego-membrane [Surya]

Strong influence * potentially dominance * of central roles = father-self-king

  • Father-figures [Surya]
  • and politics-celebrity-entertainments [Surya]

upon one's peer relationships [Shukra]

The human personality consists of multiple shells * Sheaths * membranes which surround and protect the pure core being. These many membranes are all to some extent porous and psychically interactive, but some shells are less permeable than others. Nine of these shell * membranes are Jyotisha-identified with the nine graha.

When Surya and Shukra share a rashi, the self-centered ego-membrane tends to have more operating fuel than the other-accommodating, adjusting, negotiating interactive membranes operated by counseling-advising Shukra.

Opinions of the father and masculine-authority figures [Surya] and matters of political rights and entitlements [Surya] strongly impact the trusting, matching, pairing, balancing, yoking behaviors of Shukra.

Due to Surya's bright heat , when pale, cool Shukra is combust, the influence of masculine roles, father-figures and concerns of political empowerment are dominantly strong.

Surya-related thoughts, persons, and actions regarding one's personal engagement with politics, personal charisma, entertainments, entitlements can overwhelm Shukra's portfolio of agreements, alliances, partnerships, matches, deals, negotiation and brokerage.

The outcome is a self-directing personality which is not barred from entering unions, but once committed to an alliance is rather less accommodating to the constituency and more focused on self-interest.


"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Paul of Tarsus, Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
