Public Figures


Mate-1 (if any) = bhava-2

Due to the geometry which matches any potential public-alliance to the native's programming for treasure-collecting, values-oriented, banking, preserving bhava-2, conditions of the first marriage are often framed by narratives of enrichment, family genetics, stock and storage, lineage knowledge, memory. containment of assets, database and historical records, speech-and-song, precious collections, pricing and valuation.

Chandra-8 is fundamentally a secretive person who is nourished emotionally by conditions of confidentiality, crisis, and unexpected upheaval. The first life-lifepartner for Chandra-8 nativities is described according to conditions in acquisitive, hoarding, lineage-preserving bhava-2.

The first life-partner may be emotionally apprehended as an agent of treasuries accrual, development of stores of historical, cultural, and artistic values , and establishment of a family lineage. The Mate may have a strong face and voice.

The spouse has a fixed eye on capital wealth + genetic lineage. Lifemate = often knowledgeable in matters of banking, history, values-fulfillment, assessment, music, languages, libraries, databases, containment, and collections.

6th-from = constitutional challenges within the union = partnership predisposition toward accusation, disappointment, disagreement, or distrust

If there are misalignments of expectation in this marriage, profile detail regarding the spouse's mental or behavioral imbalances may be garnered from examination of the 6th-from-7th-from-Chandra = 12th-from-Chandra.

For Chandra-8, this distinctively maritally contentious bhava 6th-from-2nd = yuvatisthana-7 = contracts, bargains, and terms of agreement.

Depending on the nature of any graha located in bhava-7, disagreement within the union may arise on matters of maternal grandmother (4th-from-4th), vows, trusts, deals, matches, arrangements, and negotiations.

The first life-mate is emotionally attached to the family of origin and their lineage values-fulfillment of speech, song, wealth, herds, or knowledge.

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King has Chandra + Kumbha-Zukra. Zukra is well supported in Kumbha, particularly for large-scale social participation networks. Dr. King married Coretta Scott King a famous and beautiful singer (2, song-face). She was approved by his family as a match to their values lineage., and she produced four children into the line.

Often one born with Chandra-8 has experienced a lifetime of emotional volatility due to the constant upheavals inherent in the mother's identity transformations and her hidden activities. Therefore, Chandra-8 may finds it soothing to join with the more traditional personality of life-mate-1, whose attachment to an established values lineage via the life-mate-1's family of origin is felt appreciatively.

  • .

Life-mate-1 is prominently concerned with containment of financial well-being. The wealth collection may take the form consistent with rashi of bhava-2 and any graha in bhava-2. Spousal behaviors reflect emotional need to conserve, reserve, preserve, bank, collect, retain, store. Topics of finance and accumulation are highlighted in the profile of mate-1.

For best results, bhava-2 should be in good condition.

Chandra-8 has endured a childhood of traumatic, unexpected changes regarding the mother; therefore one enters marriage at an emotional disadvantage for bonding.

One may need the constant crisis of urgent change and penetrating intervention in order to create familiar feeling of comfort.

It could be said that one born with a need for secret identities and a proclivity for hidden sources of nurturing Marriage is a conflicted concept, but if the social order requires it then Chandra-8 essentially marries to obtain a keeper of the visible family lineage values-fulfillment .

Genetics and wealth-values are very important to the alliance. If there is no disruption in bhava-2, following the marriage, and despite the secretiveness, every success may be expected in continuation of the lineage values-fulfillment .

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner * Somana-yuti-Shani * married twice. His first marriage 1899-1911 to wife-1 Anna Eunicke provided financial support (2nd = 7th from 8) . From the wealth produced by her properties, AE quietly funded RS' lifestyle, his personal writings, his philosophical research, and his literary magazine. Surya-2 randhresha (hidden) in 7th-from-Chandra. AE's role was so much hidden from public view that, when Steiner became a public figure, many of his followers knew only about his second wife Marie von Sivers 1914-1925. Some devotees innocently (and vigorously) denied that their Wise Leader had even been involved in an impolite divorce! RS' second wife was an influential philosophical and literary collaborator (9).

Psychic precursors

Life-partnership-1 may be emotionally triggered and sustained by subconscious parallel-life memories of 7th-from-8th = bhava-2. One psychically anticipates an emotionally acquisitive and appreciative life-mate-1

  • First life partner comes equipped with the traits necessary to develop the expected qualities of family history; food and food storage; oral tradition, epic poetry, speech and song; one's own moral and aesthetic values, knowledge of history, art collections, wealth, and knowledge of languages; mother's family history; physical body face, neck, jaw, mouth, teeth, tongue.

Generally, the chosen partner will happily provide just this sort of climate. Restless discontent, attraction * akarshana * o disaster and emergency, or hidden sexual behaviors within the marriage, due to 2nd = 8th -from-7th-from-lagna. If primary marriage = to the ishta-devata, a highly tantrik expression of the marriage vow.

Natural adversaries of life-mate-1 bhava-2 * one's equal partners and one's father and doctrine

The shad-ashtaka karaka for dhana-bhava-2 =

  • 6th-from-2nd = bhava-7 = peer-partners, advisers, attorneys, contractual relationships, equity and justice
  • 8th-from-2nd= bhava-9 = father, guru, professor, preacher; catechism, doctrine and teachings; universities and global perspective

The karaka role-players of 7 and 9 can be expected to behave less comfortably toward the life-mate.

Life-mate-1 may look toward one's other partnerships as enemies. Bhava-7 = 6th-from-7th-from-Chandra-8 * accuser or enemy of life-mate-1 . Bhava-7 = also 12th-from-Chandra -8 indicating a drain upon the native's capacity to maintain camouflage and secrecy. One's existing legal contracts and peer relationships become energy drains upon the native's engagement with confidential information and tantric knowledge. At the same time life-mate-1 (bhava-2) sees the publically recognized contracts including employment contracts and legal agreements as being adversarial to the interests of the family-rooted life-mate-1.

Indeed Chandra-8 natives often struggle to maintain lasting contracts (unless there are strong graha in 7, contracts =12th-from-Chandra = easily dissolved). The animosity of the wealth-and-family-oriented life-mate-1 toward the native's alliances and contracts can increase Chandra-8's existing proclivity to constantly re-negotiate their diplomatic, business and property contracts. Naturally the renegotiation scenario becomes more energized if graha occupy bhava-7.

Denizens of bhava-9 = 8th-from-2nd such as father, guru, professor, and global or doctrinal situations, can also exhibit an unexpectedly transformative, eruptive, or upheaving effect upon the life-mate-1. Whereas spouse-1 may criticize one's peer contracts as adversarial to spouse-1's lineage-values interests; the pater-noster, professors, preachers, father-figures and indoctrinators may criticize spouse-1 as adversarial to their own quest to spread philosophical or religious beliefs. Naturally the sudden-eruption scenario becomes more dramatic if graha occupy bhava-9.

If there is a second marriage, the second spouse (global doctrinal 9) sees the first spouse (lineage wealth 2) as an enemy, because 2 = 6th-from-bhava-9.

Additional spousal characteristics derived from the rashi of bhava-2

Supplementing the qualities of the union, the unequal, naturally fraught relationship between the Budha-ruled native versus the Brihaspati-ruled lifepartner. From Busy Budha's perspective, the great Benevolent Brihaspati = a sama-graha neutral party. Budha-ruled-Chandra usually feels neutral therefore toward Brihaspati's territories. However from Guru's perspective, busy-mind Budha is a more-than-annoying shatru-graha enemy. The wide-scope comforts of the Dhanuzya-defined lifepartner who needs global humanism and a philosophical view may be less compatible with the narrow-scope comforts of the Mithunaya native who feels soothed by planning activities, technical details, and office chat.

Naturally, graha residing in bhava-2 can significantly influence the outcome.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt married diplomat and social-progressive activist POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt . Mrs. Roosevelt exemplified Guru-generosity via her activist focus on foundational shelter, schooling, and housing and global humanism (Dhanuzya). Typical of the lifemate of Chandra-8, Eleanor's primary role was the continuation of the genetic line and maintenance of the family treasuries. Five living children were born into this marriage in quick succession, at which point he began an enduring affair-du-coeur with Eleanor's private secretary, ending the intimacy of the marriage. A relentless urban-tenement social activist in New York during her young adulthood and her husband NY-governorship, and an international war-time and postwar humanist in maturity, her global works extended non-stop from suffragist causes and charity patronage in her early years throughout her clandestine world diplomacy during World-War-2 through her service as USA ambassador to the United Nations. FDR's bhava-2-Dhanuzya receives drishti of Chandra + Guru + Mangala, suggesting her sensitivity, scope, and dynamism along with a vigorous Kuja dosha .

Life-partner-1 for Chandra-Karkata-8 * comforted by rhythmic tidal maternal soothing

Upon her tragic premature death from breast cancer, his 2nd-from-Chandra (containing Rahu) generated a very different marriage-2. .

Life-partner-1 for Chandra-Simha-8 * comforted by rhythmic creative display

In addition to the knowledgeable, often vociferous, treasury-and-lineage conserving behaviors of bhava-2, the spouse may feature Kumbha-Ghata emotional traits such as friendliness, orientation to large social assemblies (such as rallies and parties) + a preference for economic gainfulness in relationships.

Naturally, graha residing in bhava-2 can significantly influence the outcome.

Often impacted by the natural animosity of Shani-vs-Surya within the marital union, Chandra-Simha is generally challenged in marriage. Sima prefers bright intelligence, politics, drama, special exceptions, and center-stage roles. However, soberly serious Shani imposes lawful austerity in 2 =history, family heritage, lineage values-fulfillment , banking. Shani wants a regulated system, has little tolerance for exceptions, entitlements, individual foibles, or special bright lights.

Chandra-8's lifepartner represented by Surya's arch-enemy Shani = a work functionary identified with conservation, collections, record-keeping. The Surya-ruled native (8) is often the center of attention in the 8-environments such as confidential information, hidden assets, secret relationships, occult knowledge. This pairing often supports political couples, with the 8-partner entertaining and dealing with emergencies while the 2-partner focuses on economically (Kumbha) oriented preservation and storage.

  • POTUS-14 Bleeding Kansas 1804-1869 Franklin Pierce married Jane Appleton, a New England preacher's daughter with Mula-Chandra in a Mula-lagna. She disliked his political career (Shani dislikes Surya). A pious woman (his Shani-9) Jane's focus was trained upon family lineage, assets, and children. After a series deaths (2) including her father and all three of her sons, Jane's lifelong tuberculosis worsened into a near-death state and she declined to support his career.

In addition to the knowledgeable, vociferous, and wealth-and-lineage conserving behaviors of bhava-2, include Meena-Antya emotional traits such as dreaminess, spiritualized intuition and a preference for social invisibility in relationships.

Add to the experience, the unequal, naturally fraught relationship between the Budha-ruled native and the Brihaspati-ruled lifepartner. From bantering Budha's perspective, benevolent Brihaspati = a sama-graha neutral party. The Kanya native feels neutral therefore toward the Meena partner. However from Guru's perspective, busy-mind Budha is a shatru-graha enemy. The wide-scope of the Meena-defined lifepartner seeks comfort in intuitive awareness and a compassionate view. Meena folk may be less compatible with the narrow-scope comforts of the Kanya partner who feels soothed by argumentative details and complaint.

Naturally, graha residing in bhava-2 can significantly influence the outcome.

Life-partner-1 for Chandra-Thula-8 * comforted by rhythmic negotiation of agreements

In addition to the knowledgeable, vociferous, and wealth-and-lineage conserving behaviors of bhava-2, include Mesha-Arya emotional traits such as inventiveness, impatience, and a preference for action rather than words in relationships.

Quickly after their wedding, he joined the US military (defense, Chandra) to serve in WW-2, and upon his return he started a life career as a policeman (Karkata, defense, protection). Chandra-8 rulers 7th-from-Chandra, thus all three of her marriages were caught in her cycle of intensive identity change (8). The vows were difficult to maintain and the marriages short-lived * compounded by her Ketu-7.

Life-partner-1 for Chandra-Kumbha-8 * comforted by rhythmic pulsing network linkage

Marriages that operate emotionally on the Simha-Kumbha axis must contend with the opposing, mutually incompatible agendas of (8) Shani's responsible, systematic, economically oriented Kumbha paradigm, versus (2) Surya's self-important, radiantly confident, inherently political, attention-demanding Simha paradigm.

In childhood,, the Kumbha partner may have been expected to display community networking skills, economic pragmatism, and sensitivity to the needs of the group. Whereas the Simha partner may have been the adored jewel of their parents' or grandparents' eye.

In addition to the knowledgeable, vociferous, treasury-focused, and lineage conserving behaviors of bhava-2, include within the expectations of the spouse Simha-Leya emotional traits such as solipsism, personal uniqueness, and a preference for being the center of attention in relationships.

It is a splendid pairing for high visibility political marriages which require entertaining and social outreach, particularly when the wifely partner = Kumbha-Chandra.

Naturally, graha residing in bhava-2 or in bhava-8 can significantly influence the outcome.

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King married Coretta Scott, a beautiful performing musician and inspirational singer.

Eventually, there was a Kanya-style argument-and-divorce on accusations of failed lineage-continuation. But unlike some of Henry's other wives Quene Kateryn was never beheaded, and she never abandoned her claim to be the rightful Quene. The common folk (Kanya) loved her and she was widely honored as a victim of betrayal.

Mate-2 (if any) = bhava-9



Anna Bolina was the mother of Queen Elizabeth-1. ++ the second wife of England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor. Anna was beheaded on order of King Henry after she miscarried his male heir .

Due to the geometry which matches any potential second public-alliance to the native's programming for philosophical, outward-looking, father-figured, principled, humanitarian bhava-9 , conditions of the second marriage are often framed by narratives of global interpretive paradigms, theory, expansive worldview, higher understanding, sangha of believers, faith communities, sacred teaching, fortune and patronage.

At a simple level, the second life-partner resembles the father-figure. The specific characteristics of the patronage emerge from graha in bhava-9.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand is a world-recognized entertainer with a record of extraordinary accomplishment in the performance arts along with lifetime political activism. Her Guru-yuti-Shani-6 predicts two alliances, but with a long delay (Shani) between the first marriage and the second marriage. Shani suggests that the second marriage occurs later in life. Her second husband, the Hollywood actor James Brolin, is the at-home partner. The couple married in their 50's (Shani) when both had successful entertainment careers (Singha). Brolin = a celebrity actor Rahu-Singha rules uttama-Surya-5. After marriage, his career changed into being the radiant masculine presence complimenting his famous but reclusive wife (her Ketu).

The second life-partner may be emotionally apprehended as an agent of religious, philosophical, or theoretical teachings, fortune through wisdom, and connection to the university or temple world.

Generally, the 2nd spouse and the first family are mutually ill-disposed because kutumbha-2 = 6th-from-9th However, the re can be harmonious exceptions, such as when the dhanahapathi occupies 9.

Traits of bhava-9 mate include celebrity, high creativity, grandchildren, higher entertainments, and the greatest fortune of true teachings.

In a husbandly nativity, second lifepartner may serve as the guiding, creative, dramatic Muse.

  • Basic Instinct 1944- drama-commerce Michael Douglas entered a second marriage to Zorro 1969- drama-commerce Catherine Zeta Jones. The union is publically known as enduring = Shani in Bhava-11 rules Makara-9 = 2nd-from-Chandra. CZJ may be said to serve as co-parent, creative collaborator, and Muse. Yet the union = distinctively marked by illness both mental and physical for both lifemates. 2nd-from-Chandra contains dissociative Ketu-Makara-Draco which indicates the bipolar disorder of the second beloved.

Emotionally philosophical and paternalistic life-mate-2

The second life-partner may be an ideologue, preacher or professor. Mate-2 may travel extensively, giving lectures; while Chandra-8 = a pragmatic native, concerned more with day-to-day routines.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner * Somana-yuti-Shani celebrated a second wedding with Ms. Marie von Sievers. She was a lifetime member of the congregation (9) of Theosophical believers. Budha ruler of 9 casts drishti into 9, showing her involvement in evangelism and messaging. She served as his long-time editor, publisher, and philosophical collaborator. She continued to develop Steiner's theoretical works after his death, and by the time of her decease a great body of this principled legacy had been generated (9).

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney was widowed in 1998 at the onset of Rahu mahadasha. Rahu occupies 2nd-from-Chandra and Budha rules swamsha. His Rahu-Budha bhukti in 2002 generated a Rahu marriage with an over-reaching fashion model. Rahu-9 brought the expected world travel, philanthropic focus, and love of the bright lights (Simha). Virtually his entire family publically declaimed partner-2 as inappropriate and unsuitable (much exacerbated by Rahu) Kutumbha-2 = 6th-from-9th. Yet Rahu is passionate and opportunistic. 2nd-from-Chandra = the glamorous charlatan Rahu-2 (passion, sparkle). The second spouse was characterized in the press as attention-seeking, compulsive liar and high-drama social climber Rahu-Simha; High-publicity divorce from the 2nd marriage was financially exhausting (6th-from-9 = finance, treasuries).

In addition to serving as a Muse, the second lifemate is usually doctrinally oriented and typically a follower of some specific dogma.

  • General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison * Somana-yuti-Kuja (8) on 24-Feb-1886 * made a second marriage after widowhood to 20-year-old Mina Miller * Mangala-Rahu bhukti. Although the second Mrs. Edison was much his junior (Edison's Budha-Makara in 2nd-from-Chandra) Mina presented a mature, conventional (Makara) image of lawful behavior, exemplfying thehigh principles of the day (9)

Seventh from Chandra = 9th-from-lagna = generally an auspicious situation for marriage, presuming bhava-9 is well-disposed.

For Chandra-8, whatever occurs in bhava-9 will be mirrored by both the father and the second Mate . Ms. Presley stated after Mr. Jackson's death that the similarity of their willfully self-destructive drug problems was uncanny, and she was powerless to help either one of them.

Special effects of Rahu in 2nd-from-Chandra

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle * Chandra-8 parivartamsha Shani-2. C-D's second lifepartner was a fascinating figure. She was a performing mezzo-soprano and competitive equestrienne, inter alia. Rahu craves opportunities to experience importance. Although C-D wrote thousands of letters during his lifetime, researchers of his literary estate are unable to find any letters to-or-from the decades-long and devoted first marriage. Apparently wife-2 was a cruel stepmother and after C-D's decease she burned any artifacts of his life which threatened her importance in his world.

Transition from life-mate-1 to life-mate-2

The first life-mate is represented by the banking, values-collecting environment of bhava-2. The first life-mate has acquisitive, historical, linguistic, story-telling traits which may anchor marriage-1 into an ongoing state of conservation of resources and preservation of traditions.

bhava-7 = 8th-from-12th. Emotionally Therefore, the second marriage indicates a significant upheaval and forced identity change (8) away from the privacy, seclusion, and sanctuary of marriage-1 and toward a new focus upon negotiation, bargaining deal-making, arrangement, and interpersonal trust .

Depending on the presence or absence of graha in bhava-7, the second life-partnership may be vigorously arbitrating (for example, Mangala-7). If bhava-7 is unoccupied, the second life-partnership may be more quiet in its expression. Yet marriage-2 is clearly distinguished by the increase in interpersonal engagement and ability to reach agreement.

Psychic precursors

Second life-partnership may be emotionally triggered and sustained by deep memories of 2nd-from-8th. The psychically anticipated environment of bhava-9 for the second life-partnership includes agency of bhava-9:

  • Second life partner comes equipped with the traits necessary to develop the expected qualities of One's own father; maternal grandfather; ceremonial religion, priests; guru, professor, religious teachers; wisdom; universities and temples; grandchildren; physical body spine, hips, pelvis, sciatic complex.

Mate-3 (if any) = bhava-4 = 9th-from-Chandra

caretakers, householders, shelter, protection, parenting, defense, familiar rhythms and cultural roots

The third life-partner may be emotionally apprehended as an agent of parenting, householding, sheltering, schooling, ethnic roots, familiar rhythms, and cultural foundations for the native .

  • Emotionally parental, sheltering, grounded 3rd-marriage partner. The third marriage partner may be a caretaker.

Even if there are polarizing catalysis in this generally stable union, it may be difficult to exit this arrangement due to the strength of the local home roots which bind in bandhu bhava (often with tight control from the one's mother ).

The third spouse (if any) forms the very foundation of the household, and is respected *within* the household (not necessarily in the broader society) due to the dignity attending to 4 = 10th-from-7th.

  • Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse * married three times: Third union was the retirement marriage formed in later years to Ninon Auslander an art historian who catalogued his work, arranged his publishing contracts, and managed his estate. Hesse remarked that in his marriage with Ninon, despite his age and poor health, he had achieved finally a degree of comforting routine, relationship stability, happiness in gardening, and a household rhythm which had been unachievable in his first two marriages (due largely to his extremely complex Chandra-8 situation).

  • Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros on 21-Sep-2013 * Chandra-Guru bhukti * entered his third marriage (GS age 83, partner age 41). Marriages in elder years which indicate bhava-4 tend to be retirement marriages, designed to provide security and comfort. Ketu occupies GS bandhusthana.

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney married the retirement spouse in 2011. She is represented by Mr. McCartney's 9th-from-Chandra = bhava-4 Meena= benevolent home-based security and comfortable, habitual rhythms of daily life.

Naturally, bhava-4 must be well-disposed for the positive auspice to yield material fruits. If bhava-4 is polarizing catalysis, so may be the outcome of marriage-3.

  • Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley's emotional relationship to the third Mate dramatist Nicolas Cage = profiled via bandesha-4 = Mula Zukra in bhava-6 = love of recklessness , sex addictions and marital disagreements.

For the native with Chandra-8, graha in bhava-4 are determinative of the conditions of marriage-3.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor on 30-May-1536 married wife-3 Jane Seymour during Chandra-Guru bhukti . For one born with Chandra-8, the conditions of bhava-4 indicates wife-3. Henry has a powerful natal Rahu-Vrischika-4. Henry married Jane only 11 days after beheading his previous wife, Anna Bolina (Anne Boleyn). Rahu sends ambitious and barrier-bending, taboo-twisting drishti to Henry's notorious (1) Chandra-8, to his (2) wealthy-but-amputating Zukra-yuti-Ketu-10, and to his (3) Budha-12 . Professor Budha rules bhava-2 genetic lineage. Henry was desperate for a son to continue his royal line. Jane did produce the son, but she died 2 weeks later. He gave Jane an elegant Quene's funeral. Still under the spell of identity-churning Chandra-8, he married again to wife-4 Anne of Cleves on 06-Jan-1540 .

Characteristics of bhava-4 = mirrored by both the mother and the second Mate .

Mate-4 (if any) = bhava-11

the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra

When indicated by other multiple-alliance predictors, the fourth marriage may serve as the retirement marriage .

The emotionally anchored 4th-alliance = optimized for comfort, routine, security, nourishment, farming, protection, patriotism, schooling, and observance of the rhythmic seasonal calendar

Much depends upon the characteristics of any graha located in 4th-from-Chandra

Due to the geometry which matches any potential 4th-public-alliance to the native's programming for friendly, community-oriented, socializing, earnings-focused, systematic bhava-11, conditions of the fourth marriage are often framed by narratives of economic authority, social networking, voluntary associations, wages and revenues, and wealth distribution linkage.

The fourth life-partner (if any) may be emotionally apprehended as an agent of Goal Achievement and Profitable Gains for the native . The marriage is emotionally based in creative friendship working toward shared goals , due to the goal-oriented qualities of bhava-11 = 5th-from-7th-from-lagna.

  • Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley' 's 4th marriage according to public accounts was gainful and goal-achieving, particularly in regard to children. She added a pair of twins to her family at a relatively late maternal age. However a fourth divorce was reportedly motivated by financial issues.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor had Surya-yuti-Guru in bhava-11 4th-from-Chandra married wife-4 Anne of Cleves on 06-Jan-1540. * Chandra-Zukra bhukti * Zukra-yuti-Ketu indicates a chronic dissatisfaction with women and ever-ready to break contacts. Six months later, Henry expressed egregious dissatisfaction with her appearance and a legal argument was made to justify breaking the marriage contract. The contract broker was beheaded for treason. 09-July-1540 annulment of marriage-4 to Anne of Cleves, on the grounds of non-consummation * Chandra-Zukra bhukti * Zukra-yuti-Ketu

Mate-5 = bhava-6

the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Henry8_HowardCatherine.jpegDue to the geometry which matches any potential fifth public-alliance to the native's programming for the often ailing, exploited, mistreated, accused, serve-or-suffer ari bhava-6,conditions of thefifth marriage are often adversarial, ill, conflicted, medicated, criminal, toxic, enslaved, disagreeable, or dedicated to a ministry of service on behalf of the suffering.

For Chandra-8 nativities, the fifth marriage (if any) is often beset by disagreement and accusation. In the case of Henry-8, the level of disharmony is greatly exacerbated by onset of his Chandra-Surya chidradasha, which concluded his extremely volatile mahadasha of Chandra-8 and activated his highly self-important and entitled lagnesha Surya which rules 6th-from-Chandra .

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor 28-July-1540 marriage-5 to Catherine Howard almost immediately after obtaining annulment of his previous marriage to Anne of Cleves, and during his Chandra-Zukra bhukti * Zukra-yuti-Ketu (Ketu null).

    On13-Feb-1542 wife-5 Catherine Howard was beheaded on orders from Henry, on grounds of adultery and treason * Chandra-Surya bhukti * Surya rules 6th-from-Chandra animosity, accusations

Mate-6 = bhava-1 identity


For Chandra-8 nativities, the sixth marriage (if any) is often deeply aligned to the true personality and identity of the native. This factor predicts a mutually supportive and generally harmonious marriage.

However emotionally, there is plenty of stress because the personality has always been under siege from the reality that the radical lagna is also the 6th-from-Chandra, which connotes health disorders and other emotionally-based imbalances of the fleshbody-identity.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor 12-July-1543 (Henry's age 51) marriage-6 to Catherine Parr during his Mangala-Rahu bhukti. Henry died three years after his sixth-and-final marriage. Finally, his tremendously volatile Chandra-8 mahadasha had finished. He was severely sick and enormously obese. After 10 years of intrigue and upheaval, the fury of his self-destructive/self-rebirthing cycles had finally diminished. Although the union was brief, the 6th marriage was said to be companionable and distinguished by Henry's willingness (Surya) to listen to his wife's opinion as he believed that she was his well-wisher and that she understood him.

May all beings venerate life as a state of deep spiritual intimacy.

"Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;

love is never boastful or conceited;

it is never rude or selfish;

it does not take offense, and is not resentful.

Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth;

it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.

Love does not come to an end."

~~ 1st Epistle to the Corinthians 13: 4-8 [Jerusalem Bible]
