Soul Recognition in Relationships
Tibetan Bronze - Collection of American Museum of Natural History, New York
Nakshatra of the navamsha lagna describes one's own psycho-emotional self-image. This soul level of self-image requires validation in reciprocal, psychically intimate relationships.
Etheric-body energy exchange or"First Impression"
All relationships between humans are intimate in the sense that when one human meets another human, however briefly, an etheric-body information exchange. The exchange is based on the pre-existing subconscious memories which each person retains from their past-life relationship.
Regardless of the emotional value or psychic charge on the exchange, the feeling one experiences at the moment of the etheric transaction is "interest" or engagement with some qualities of the other person.
Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner Staying Connected * p 120 and following for a clear description of the"interest" experience.
Mutual Soul Recognition - for a moment or for a lifetime
The experience of mutual soul recognition may be continuous throughout the lifetime (as with a beloved parent) or intensely for several decades (as with a beloved partner) or quite temporarily (as with a brief encounter). Whether short or long duration, the native feels significant"interest" when the soul-to-soul matching recognition takes place.
of course, this is the best possible outcome of the core soul-recognition relationship. The mother-child essential bond like any other type of soul recognition may suffer karmic destruction or delay.
Mother-child relationships provide the only natural expression of unconditional love in human life. In the Jyotisha charts, a strong bond should be present between graha in the mother's nativity and the Nakshatra on the child's swamsha.
Normally this is quite natural for the mother, who has no trouble realizing the divine nature of her child. Yet it is rather remarkable and precious when an intensely engaging, deeply nourishing and validating recognition arises outside the mother-child relationship.
Falling in Love
This experience is often called"falling in love".
Psychic Impressions from animals, minerals, or other items
The moment of etheric exchange or"interest" generates the"first impression" which may be strong or weak, hot or cold, bright or gloomy, attractive or repulsive.
Such a"first impression"also occurs in meetings between humans and animals of all species, and between humans and plants. Much less so between humans and members of the mineral kingdom.
Is there a psychic 'gap' between the real person as you sense them, versus their ornamentation, style of dress, and decorum? Are they trying to be someone they're really not? Lifestyle in smooth harmony with their basic personality?
Guidance toward validating the partner's higher (or preferred) self
Examine the Nakshatra of the swamsha to determine how the native sees one's best self, highest self, closest-to-the-divine self. Find in this Nakshatra key to validating one's partner, whether in business or marriage.
For one's own self, examine and learn to nourish one's higher calling . Self-validation is one of the most powerful spiritual practices.
Who do you think you are?
Nakshatra of the navamsha lagna is probably the most spiritually important of all the Nakshatra points.
All the Graha in all of their varga placements and all of the lagna etc. do reside in their own Nakshatra, and each of those significations will reveal one more piece of the karmic jig-saw puzzle if one should have the time to contemplate all of that detail! Yet this one simple piece = nakshtara of swamsha = surprisingly revealing.
The"swamsha" Nakshatra profiles the psycho-emotional model of the"good partner's actions " or"correct interaction" which the native is following (consciously or not) in relationship.
When something happens to disturb the native 's ability to act out this model , one's deep sense of spiritual direction is invalidated and the native feels that something is terribly wrong. the native will probably feel the need to abandon a partnership which consistently blocks one's ability to act out the soul-model for proper and nourishing partnering behavior, rather than abandon their model.
Malefics in the Nakshatra of swamsha will always cause polarizing catalysis along the path of native's pursuit of their programmed ideal.
Many of the native 's experiences in life will be subtly regulated by the soul-level of memory-driven need indicated by the total condition of the navamsha, particularly the rising Nakshatra .
Nakshatra of Shani
Socio-materially compatible with friends of Shani ::
(for emotional compatibility, compare nakshatra of natal Chandra)
Nakshatra of Shani (structural and regulated, best)
Nakshatra of Zukra (materialistic and sensual, good match)
Socio-materially neutral toward neutrals of Shani :
Socio-materially incompatible with non-friends of Shani :
(for emotional compatibility, compare nakshatra of natal Chandra)
Nakshatra of Chandra (cloyingly needy)
Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu (irregular, arrhythmic, individual instincts disregard the social law )
