| Breath and Mental Narrative
Tenzing Gyatso from How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama,
translated by Jeffrey Hopkins, p.133
"If you cannot stop worrying over something in the past or what might happen in the future, shift your focus to the inhalation and exhalation of your breath.
Or recite this mantra: om mani padme hum (pronounced "om mani padmay hum").
Since the mind cannot concentrate on two things simultaneously , either of these meditations causes the former worry to fade."

Leadership Capacity and Style
Career - Vocation additional required assessments
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
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
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 radix 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.
