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.

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.
Surya-Simha * Simha * Leonis
Surya-Kanya * Para-Persephone * Virago
Surya-Vanika [nīcha] * Thula * Librae:
Surya suffers diminished centrality in the rashi enemy Professor Shukra, but svakshetra Shukra-Vanika gains strength. Feminine traits emphasized; soft, rounded, sensuous, nicely balanced features. Looks good in small groupings and pairings, in elegant surroundings. The native presents graciously, often displaying a fine sense of couture, color-palette, and decorative ornamentation. Typically, a handsome 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 in relationships.
Surya-Vṛścika * Kita * Scorpionis
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
Surya-Dhanus * Taukshika * Sagit-Ariu
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.
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.
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.

From her father, directly or indirectly, Elizabeth inherited
Her father was both famous as a musician [Shukra] and supporter of arts [Shukra] throughout the land. Henry-8-Tudor appropriated the land-holding, cash metals, and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church ending its nearly 1500 year papal hegemony and tax stranglehold on Britain [Rahu in bhava-9]
England-King 1491-1547 Henry-8-Tudor died at age 55 from a deep-tissue wound infection from an old jousting injury
|Physical body-shell is generally handsome and complexion somewhat more pale [Shukra] than average for the gene pool||
Both husband-role 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.
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.

Marriage to Cousin; marriage settles into a Sibling relationship
The Shukra-Surya pair not only contains moudhya-dosha Shukra, but also the ruler of this pair is [nīcha] Shani-6.
Shukra = highly combust, which suggests some imbalance-seeking-a-remedy or weakness for the wifely partners and the avowed contracts, particularly in regard to relationship promises [Shukra]. Surya near to the combust Shukra would suggest that the wife may have a sensually problematic father. When FDR's wife Eleanor was eight years old, her father scandalously impregnated his house-servant, then died in a sanatorium for toxic alcoholics. Long before her actual marriage, Eleanor's trust in men [Surya] was burned by her father's personal failures. Yet, she developed a tremendous social idealism which ultimately became a gift to the depression-and-war shocked world.
Within his own personal life, FDR turned to several other women for romantic engagement and sensual pleasure, including long-time lover Lucy Mercer who was with FDR when he died.
FDR's ashta-harana Shukra-yuti-Surya pairing accepts somewhat corrective drishti of [nīcha] Shani-Mesha-6 which owns and aspects Shukra-Shani and which tends to strengthen combust-Shukra's weakened capacity for trust. FDR's unfaithfulness to his marriage vow was completely invisible to the naive public due to the Shani drishti, and did not harm their faith in his commitment to the nation.
POTUS-32 was faithful to the public trust [Shani] if not to the private trust. Yet [nīcha] Shani-6 [chronic debilitating illness] was so harsh in this duty that Roosevelt essentially died from the stress of his leadership burden 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 dig-bala * dignity * 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

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.
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.

POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt 
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.
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 in 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 male native 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 women are difficult in general as the native attracts highly egocentric or uncooperative women into his life, both professionally and personally. Often the spouse is reclusive; her husband outshines her.
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."
" ... 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.
Shukra = women 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, neither.
The essence of the wifely-companion is equity-seeking, balancing adjustability which permits sustaining of the relationship [in the Old English, 'wiffe' = 'bread-maker'] .
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.
If Shukra occupies bhava-9, bhava-1, or bhava-4 WHILE receiving drishti of the dignified Shani-7 is ALSO occupying Makara or Kumbha, nearly 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.
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, native 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
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.
