  • Nilamani Shani-ratna blue sapphire supports confidential information gained via randhresha-8 + wise world-traveling = Shani Dharmesha-9

  1. Surya ratna = no, because Surya = bhratru-pati-3 and does not rules any other good house

  2. Chandra ratna = no, because Chandra = dhanapati-2 and does not rules any other good house

  3. Mangala ratna = no-no-no, because Mangala = rogesha-6 and vriddhi-pati-11

  4. Budha ratna = yes! because Budha = the auspicious lagnesha and bandesha-4. Promotes vitality and commerce of all varieties, particularly in matters of real-estate, housing, pathways of transportation, vehicles, and foundational schooling.

  5. Guru ratna = no, because Guru = yuvati-pati-7 and karmesha-10

  6. Shukra ratna = yes, because bhagya Shukra = vidya-pati-5 and ruler-of-12

  7. Shani ratna = yes, because bhagya Shani = randhresha-8 and Dharmesha-9 . General a graha will provide stronger results for its mūlatrikoṇa rashi [Kumbha]. However, prescriptive caution is warranted if there is activity in bhava-8.

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown. Prescription depends on Rahu's ruler

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown. Prescription depends on Ketu's ruler

There are exceptions to all of these general rules which are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and one's personal goals, inter alia.

Leadership Capacity and Style

Career - Vocation additional required assessments

  • yuvati-pati-7 + karmesha-10 from Chandra Lagna

  • 10th navamsha and its lord within the radix

  • Guru the Guide = karmesha-10

  • Generous Guru = yuvati-pati-7

A fortunate combination for organizational leadership (10) and peer-advising collegial relationships (7) -- provided that Guru is well-disposed.

Mithuna nativities generally enjoy successful material careers in all departments of the productive economy.

Mithunaya specialize in guidance activities, which range from religious preaching to philosophical publishing to travel guide to law-school professor, as well as dozens of teacher-preacher-adviser-counselor roles in other humanistic content areas.

Guru provides both leadership-guidance (10) and counseling-guidance (7). Frequently Mithunaya works for a large [Guru] humanistic organization, often taking the role of the scholar-administrator .

Guru loves wisdom-seekers and wisdom-providers such as teachers, travelers, and truth (9) .

Guru also loves the sanctuary enclosures (12) such as hospitals, meditation halls, dormitories, and counseling rooms where spiritual guidance occurs. Mithuna nativities Therefore, a drawn to Guru-ist vocations

  • professional educators

  • the education industry = teachers and academic advisers

  • divinity: teaching, preaching, pastoral counseling

  • law: consulting attorneys, law professors, managing partners

  • medicine: consulting physician, philosophy of medicine, psychologist-psychiatrist

Mithuna-lagna is blessed with broad-minded and compassionate [Guru] peer-advisers and colleagues (7).

Mithuna nativities = the spouse-partner (7) is likely to share the same Guru-oriented profession (10).

Health for Mithuna lagna

rogesha-6 = Kuja

Mithuna lagna is more likely to have health problems = consequences of repressed anger or a psychology of excessive self-control.

rogesha-6 +Vriddhi-pati-11 = friends become enemies and also enemies may become friends. The native earns via direct intervention [Mangala] into situations rife with conflict, debt, and disease.

The physical manifestations of illness are somewhat mysterious due to Ari Bhava = Vṛścika.

Mithunaya nativities tend toward the expression of the secret, unspeakable anger that articulate, conversational Mithuna rarely feels permitted to express during day-to-day business transactions.

Look to Kuja's bhava for the relationship and the location which show the key to the origin of the ailment.

The origin of Mithuna 's ailment = usually angry frustration with"psychic attack" .

  • Some variety of psycho-emotional aggression has produced a pattern of attempted take-over of the native by the siblings [Mangala], male peers [Mangala], possibly co-workers * especially males * or even indirectly one may feel attacked by economic forces of the marketplace (11) .

rogesha-6 = the contract-dissolver. In contractual relationships, during the period of rogesha-6 , the native will struggle with impulsiveness and a tendency to break promises (6).

  • If other factors suggest impending dissolution of marriage, Mangala bhukti may signal legal divorce. rogesha-6 Kuja in bhava-1, bhava-4, or bhava-12 is very challenging for marriage.

  • Shani in 6 for Mithuna lagna = native wants to get out of a frustrating marriage, but cannot due to responsibilities or fear of censure.

More than any other lagna, Mithuna's health problems are resolved effectively through surgery.

If rogesha-6 Kuja also occupies the Mithuna kundali indriya-lagna ,

  • the native 's life = fraught with adversarial conflict.

  • The individual is exceptionally competitive to the point of chronic, often destructive, aggressiveness.

  • The animosity affects the physical body when rogesha-6 occupies the janma lagna. Kuja in Mithuna lagna may encourage the native to undertake a career in dispute management, particularly a career the involves large-scale economic activity since Kuja = Vriddhi-pati-11 while Guru as karmesha-10 tends to grant a large scope to career influence upon the society.

  • If the randhresha-8 +dharmesha-9 Shani is involved with Kuja (yuti or drishti or parivartamsha) the aggression can be channeled into a university career but most like the earnings Mangala vriddhi-pati-11 are obtained via a secret Shani randhresha-8 structure.
