Brahma_drawing 19th cenNeed Me

Radix Moon in Rohini = Attracts affection and acquires value --"Look at Me"


Chandra in a Chandra-ruled nakshatra has an identical, perfect relationship.

Fertile, productive, creative Rohini emotionally needs to be admired for being beautiful and for creating collections of assets .

Rohini decorates, beautifies and conserves.

Rohini has a particular emotional affinity for plants and horticultural activities.

Rohini delights in the beauty of fertile lands, especially those lush green-growing places near the cool, moist breezes of the ocean

  • POTUS-pair-36 Wildflowers 1912-2007 Ladybird Johnson beautified millions of miles of park and parkway lands, along the edges of USA highways

Artistic, materially focused, and sensual. Emotional need to collect natural resources, affluence, and beauty-values.

Chandra in Rohini often has a profound and self-defining core need for emotional security, which expresses via attracting beauty (Zukra) and collecting of treasuries (Zukra) to promote indulgence in sensual luxury (Zukra).

  • Chandra in Rohini is a splendid placement for mothers who enjoy being the most appreciated figure in their family. Also, curators of values-collections such as natural resource managers, luxury providers, wealth-bankers, or asset managers.

Beautiful eyes.

In the need to attract attention from lovers and supporters, Rohini needs to display their accumulated wealth and values.

Often produces children quite early in life for this purpose. Rohini-Chandra needs a good deal of attention which if not delivered may be demanded.

Rohini indicates emotionally urgent possessiveness and display. All eyes should be upon the native, reveling in the magnificent display of one's beauty and value. One strives to obtain attention and adoration by frequently advertising and asserting one's own value .

Voluptuously lovely * or * tall and slender

For both male and female, the curvaceous, sensual, pleasure-indulging Rohini-Chandra tends to gain weight over the years.

The beautiful coloring and lovely skin remain (along with the constant craving for sensual attention) but a definitely rotund shape may define this rounded body especially in middle age.

May develop a sensual, plump figure

However, Chandra only indirectly controls the flesh-body; if the need for adoring attention is met, one may pursue fitness as a key to ensuring continuous admiration of the body.

High maintenance

Rohini folk = emotionally high maintenance companions, bosses, and parents who may seem to be overly frequency self-announcers of their own value to the organization.

Rohini's signature emotional need = "look at me, desire me!" So long as the requisite adoring attention is paid, Rohini = a devoted friend, parent, co-worker, leader or spouse.

Emotionally driven luxurious tastes (Zukra) in food, clothes, and decor.

  • Overeats

  • over-decorates

  • Naturally other factors (such as suppression by Shani) could reduce one's ability to fulfill the emotional need for luxurious pleasure.

Fault-finding and impatient

  • if deprived of the adoring attention which Rohini craves, a resentful Rohini Chandra can develop a short temper, along with a sarcastic or bitter relationship style.

  • If Chandra-yuti-Zukra in the kundali, this one may be quite spoiled like a pampered-princess .

Rohini are responsible and capable workers, presuming that :

terms of the promise-and-reward employment contract (Zukra) = upheld

Rohini's superiors devote sufficient attention to their well-being in the workplace.

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson = Purvaphalguni Chandra [Zukra] He behaved with shocking rudeness and promiscuity toward his financially privileged, gentle-natured, hard-working businesswoman wife Ladybird Johnson * Rohini Chandra . However, Typically of Rohini Feminine Nativities, she had eyes only for her husband Lyndon, and did his bidding always.

Spiritual director of this section of the path:

Trauma pattern

  • Fear of neglect

Chandra needs security.

Zukra needs both partnership and pleasure .

Ajaekapada needs to keep moving forward, keep fertilizing, keep growing

Chandra is parochial, local, rooted in nature and the land. Chandra-ruled Nakshatra prefer regular and socially-guaranteed relationships.

of all the stabilizing and literally"grounding" relationships which create emotional well-being for the Rohini-Chandra, legally assured equal partnership (Zukra) = marriage = by far the most emotionally important.

Rohini feminine nativities do a great deal to promote their husbands in the expectation that this husband-elevating will produce more attention for the loving wife.

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 * Chandra-yuti-Surya (11) * Despite being herself the monarch and her husband Albert having no legal power, QV constantly referred and deferred to her husband in public.

As with all the Chandra-ruled Nakshatra, emotional reactivity - responding instinctively without consideration of consequences - will cause the most polarizing catalysis in life.

The two most problematic impulses are the emotional impulse to obtain immediate sensual comfort via food, drink, or touch; and the emotional impulse to defend one's family or loved ones from a perceived attack.

Dishonesty, falsification, and pretense

All the Chandra-ruled lunar Nakshatra suffer from psychological defensiveness which is out of proportion to the scope actual threat.

Ironically these folk who are quite pure of heart can develop a reputation for falseness and pretense , as a result of putting up a defensive shield which they try to use as a 'decoy' to deflect predatory interests.

The honest truth may seem like an inadequate defense to Rohini, who may erect a protective facade of perfect contentment (Chandra) in order to mask the human weaknesses of one's self or one's immediate family.

Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

Few Friends; prefers company of the spouse

  • Kumbha the rashi of networks of friendship occupies a natural shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle from Karkata the rashi of family-protecting, defensive, rooted-to-place Moon

  • Rohini's motive is parental sheltering and protectionism. However, the resulting false-front can ironically prevent formation of relationships with those outside the immediate family group .

Thus Rohini over-bonds with family (Chandra) but typically has very few friends (Shani, public life). Those friendship which one is indeed able to retain are superficial enough to not threaten the facade, and are typically supported by the context of work (Makara).

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 * Chandra-yuti-Surya (11) * was said to have been obsessively needy of the attention of her spouse Prince Albert, whom she professed to adore. After Albert's passing, she became obsessively involved with her children and grandchildren, and her manservant John Brown. Needy Chandra also rules her her Azlesa lagna.

  • Chandra in classroom-12 indicates her very few social friends during her extremely long life . Assuming the defensive role of black-cloaked widow, Victoria displayed a facade of perfect contentment, which commentators of the day sometimes reckoned as the merest mask upon a deep immaturity, neediness, spoiled nature, and inability to accept her own flaws.

Defensiveness (Chandra)

  • Psychologically Rohini natives can be frightened of outsiders penetrating one's emotional defenses; Therefore, those offers of friendship which are not compatible with their life-core marriage identity are often rebuffed.

  • the native may appear bossy and superior , when their hold upon wealth (Zukra) union (Zukra) or food (Zukra) is threatened.


While not too pleasant toward their immediate workmates, Rohini may seek nominations for awards and receive recognition from their superiors.

Part of the defensive strategy is that Rohini likes to judge and discriminate re: who is more special and more worthy.

  • Harmonices Mundi 1571-1630 Johannes Kepler although a brilliant mathematician and physicist, Kepler also spent a great deal of effort in catering to the demands of his patrons uttama-Shani-9 patrons enjoys parivartamsha with Zukra-Makara-12. . In order to receive royal salaries and positions, Kepler had to emphasize the value of his own scientific work whilst downplaying the value of others -- to the extent of issuing unduly harsh critiques of the works of others, calling the others unworthy of the largesse of the patrons Mangala-Kanya-8, defamatory criticism of the discoveries 8 of others.

Excellent for professionals who handle social privilege and acquisitive desire, who seek or claim special recognition or favors = political lobbyists, tribal/ethnic or special interest group representatives, grant administrators, elected officials seeking"pork" for their districts, beauty and dance contest judges, performing arts council, etc.

  • Rohini adores children, fine arts and music, and favors a luxurious sensual lifestyle.

  • Cooking for family, home improvement, feathering the nest with home ornaments, local environmental clean-up, caring for bhava-pets who help defend the family (mainly dogs),

  • Physically attractive and highly knowledgeable in sexual art s and sensual pleasures, but these arts are nearly always practiced within The protective shelter of marriage and family life .

The downside can be snobbishness and critical sarcasm, feeling that one is better, more attractive, or more discriminating than others. Rohini may look down on common folks who fail to reach their elegant standards. The trait of chronic critical negativity can sour their happiness while it turns the initially lovely Rohini into an unpleasant life partner.

Das Behari commentary onn

Chandra in Rohini Nakshatra


Syzygium Jambolanum fruits [kalo-jaam] = sacred to Rohini Nakshatra

You remain oblivious to any advice or ideas counter to your own .

  • You have a special knack to find fault in others .

  • You are ruled by your heart rather than your brain.

Your life is full of ups and downs as you do not try to pre-plan your objectives.

There is no tomorrow for you. You spend everything for the sake of today's comfort.

You can shine not only in any independent profession or business but also in the social work.

As far as possible you try to be more sincere and honest in all the work you undertake.

  • But you lack patience and forgiveness.

You try to be a jack of all trades

and in the process you fail to pass through the path of requisite rhythm and system.

  • your freedom of mind will quite often lead you to downfall.

It is also seen that some Rohini born persons have risen

  • from the lowest rung of life to the highest rung of life due to the finest placement of other planets.

You may earn from milk products, sugarcane or as a chemical engineer.

  • You are best adapted for mechanical and laborious work.

Between the age of 18 and 36 will be the most trialsome periods.

  • You will have to face a lot of problems economically, socially and on health grounds.

  • It is often noticed that such people enjoy their life's best between the age of 38 and 50, and 65 and 75.

One of the primary factors to keep in mind is that you should never take anyone into confidence.

  • You have to be extra careful with business partners and employees.

There is an inherent drawback in you that you blindly believe others.

For a happy existence,

  • it is suggested that you should screen people thoroughly before confidence is bestowed on them.

While you cannot enjoy full benefit from your father,

  • you will be more a ttached to your mother and maternal uncle or maternal things.

You will not hesitate to throw away any social or religious laws when warranted.

  • Hence your married life will be marred with disturbances.

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Rohini behavior.

When under stress, the native can resort to distancing criticism of the emotional threat as inferior, unattractive, or beneath one's standards.

The native needs attention, admiration, and validation.
