California Mountain Lion P-41 (d. 2017)



Great pride in one's physical appearance and the products of one's unique social personality.

Surya = karaka for brilliance, genius, creativity, success in performance arts, the rational soul, and awareness awareness of the presence of the Divine in every moment of life. For the Simha indriya-lagna native, Surya is an enormously positive graha with the potential to bring great power and fame in politics and theatre.

Surya in bhava-1 * Politics + Drama

  • France-Emperor 1769-1831 Wars Napoleon Bonaparte

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr operated a political commentary magazine and was often asked to speak at political events

Surya in bhava-5 [svabhava] * Favors center-stage roles in literary and dramatic arts , theatre:

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Presuming that Surya is well-disposed, Surya bhukti bring praise for the physical appearance and recognition of the social identity (fame).

Father * Surya = pitri-karaka

Father is related to matters of bhava-1"identity" including physical body, musculature, appearance, name, and aura. Father and child physical resemble each other to a strong degree and both have the leonine self-confidence. However, the child is likely to outshine the father.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso had an attention-loving, entertainment-demanding father who was an inveterate horse gambler and show-off. The Holiness derives some of his physical appearance from his father and perhaps some of his sense of fun and love of center-stage roles. Naturally he also looks like his mother due to Chandra-1.

  • France-Emperor 1769-1821 Wars Napoleon Bonaparte had an imperious, finely-dressed father who conducted himself like a grand lord of the local peasants, on their remote island of Sardinia. Young new lion got his flamboyant self-confidence from his father, as well as his expectation of kingship.

  • The father of Formula One 1980-2013 test driver Maria de Villota = himself a famous race-car champion. From her father she received a large glowing golden aura of positive expectation, brilliant confidence and center-stage charisma.

Career - Surya

Because Surya = karaka for visibility and public regard, and Ravi = lagnesha-1 for Simha indriya-lagna, the Simha native is somewhat disposed toward to accept public roles and professional leadership responsibilities in connection with fleshly body vitality and appearance (1) and iconic or symbolic representations (1) .

Career environments include all types of radiant embodiment

  • being the "face" of a product e.g. fashion model,
  • being the symbol of a political movement or idea,
  • being a godlike emperor,
  • being a figure of charismatic authority.

The personal identity-appearance embodies the product.

  • France-Emperor 1804-1831 Napoleon Bonaparte * France as Empire

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda * Self-Realization Fellowship

  • Layla 1945- guitarist Eric Clapton * Face of Narcotics Anonymous + Face of late 20th-century Euro-American White Blues music

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr * Kennedy legacy

When the product, idea, or social movement which the Simha native represents is highly popular, the native is nearly worshipped as a god.

The Simha politician who starts high office on a "landslide" election win may end one's term of office only a few years later, as an object of public contempt.

When the product, idea, or social movement which the Simha native represents falls severely out of public favor, the iconic Haryaksha may experience a punishing backlash .

Sacred Jewels for Surya - Manika (pure Ruby) for Simha indriya-lagna

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 88:

"For the Leo [Simha] Ascendant

  • Sun rules the Ascendant.

  • Ruby is, therefore, a 'must' for natives of this Ascendant.

  • They should always wear a Ruby, more so when the Sun is not well placed, weak or in any way afflicted in the chart.

Ruby will protect them from health and enemies, give vitality to the body, long life, success in administrative and other posts .

  • It will also enhance the spiritual power of the native ."

Chandra * matrikaraka

vyaya-pati * shalapathi


vyaya-pati Chandra activates bhava-12, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of inner sanctuary, distant lands, hospitals and monasteries. dreams, and private spiritual apprehension, including clairsentient or intuitive guidance roles.

Chandra represents the human being's deepest need for unconditional love of the mother and foundational protection from one's sheltering, nurturing schoolteachers, home-guardians, caretakers, and parents.

In adult life, Professor Somana delivers His curriculum via engagement with the homemaking and parenting style as well as by calling emotional attention to the security that one feels within the shelter of one's core relationships.

If Chandra is well placed, one has well-being. If Professor Chandra is delivering His instructions in a classroom that features lessons ((which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) about being emotionally disadvantaged, then the native may need to compensate and cope in order to gain the essential levels of security and protection needed in this lifetime.


For either Simha-radical lagna or Simha-Chandra, Professor Thoma activates 12th-from-Chandra, suggesting the possibility of the mother's retreat into an enclosure such as a spa, prison, monastery, imaginative space, or a distant world. One outcome of 12th-angles is hospitalization or asylum, suggesting an isolated or withdrawn mother who may be emotionally unavailable.

The mother often has a pronounced imagination, perhaps emotionally oriented to the world of fantasy, imagination, or private devotional prayer.

ruler-of-12 Chandra for the Simha indriya-lagna = emotional need for retreat, for private prayer, for residence in distant lands , to live near the sea-coast of distant shores, to seek sheltered happiness on foreign beaches and on long ocean-going journeys.

  • Old Time Music 1929-2003 comedy June Carter Cash had a famously talented mother (Chandra-5 fame), the singer and musician Maybelle Carter. Mom was a disciplined performer evidenced by Somana-yuti-Shani-Mula in bhava-5 artistic performance; she needed retreat time which she characterized as time out for prayer.

Distant Lands

Distant shores can be within one's passport homeland. In large countries there may be thousands of miles and a dozen regional languages between sea-coasts. Although authentically foreign lands are emotionally satisfying for ruler-of-12 Chandra, indeed the distance proof = cultural and geographical, not the legal borders.

  • The deepest emotional connections occur in the geography of the private bedroom; in the worlds of fantasy, meditation, or prayer; in distant lands; especially on beaches and sea-shores and sheltered homes near the ocean coastline.

  • Often happiest when living with foreign relatives, perhaps a branch of one's family who are settled in a land or region distant from the place of one's birth

Marriage catalyst

If emotional needs are not met in Simha's naturally problematic marriage (problematic due to Shani = lord of 7) or via satisfaction of parenting, then Chandra's need for nurturing support may drive the native to create other bedroom associations.

Simha typically seeks an elder spouse or one senior in business rank and one profitably connected in the marketplace.

  • The Simha spouse is often absent while engaged in marketplace regulated behavior

  • Simha ironically seeking to make a home [Chandra] in distant lands (12) then seeks local emotional connections.

The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra controls the bhava of spiritual guidance, prayer, imagination, and dissolution of the social personality.

The remedial Jyotisha pearl is not recommended for Simha natives unless perhaps the native desires long sojourn in a foreign land, a deeper meditation practice, or more intimate communion with the spirits in preference to the vitality of connection with human beings.

Chandra-ratna may stimulate loss of personality-identity by weakening attachments to the flesh body and its social attributes.

Behari says of ruler-of-12 in yuvati bhava = Kumbha-Chandra for the Simha indriya-lagna:

"You are irrepressibly lustful.

You receive money from your spouse and gain renown in distant lands.

Associations and partners are social outcasts or foreigners involved in shady deals."

Sacred Jewels for Chandra - Moti (pure natural Pearl) for Simha indriya-lagna

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi.. p. 93

"For the Leo [Simha] Ascendant

Moon is the lord of the 12th house.

Therefore, the natives of this Ascendant should avoid wearing a Pearl.

  • The Pearl may, however, be worn in the major period of Moon,

  • [only] if Moon is in the 12th in his own sign."

Kuja = bandesha-4 + Dharmesha-9

Vital, fortunate, and competitive Kuja = bandesha-4 + Dharmesha-9 [Yogakaraka] for Simha indriya-lagna.

Kuja periods bring high educational accomplishment.

Kuja-ratna munga = effective.

Both the Mother and the Father are typically influential for the Simha native

[Yogakaraka] Mangala-1 rules

  • 4-foundations, cultural rhythms, ethnic basis - Mother
  • 9-doctrine, philosophy, beliefs - Father

Because Mesha = Mangala's moolatrikona rashi = identical to Simha's dharmasthana, Angarika = usually religiously minded, although in a predictably orthodox fashion which is more oriented to vital and direct-action [Mangala] expressions of public piety and less to the quiet, invisible realm of private prayer.

Special capability for fire-* worth-ship * worship and ancient rituals of the agnihoma.

May produce a warrior-priest, such as a military chaplain.

For the Simha indriya-lagna with Kumbha Chandra

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr

Shukra and Mangala create a special pair which controls 3-4 and 9-10.

When both Shukra and Mangala are strong, the native is much empowered according to their location.

  • Mangala = [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 +Dharmesha-9 from Simha indriya-lagna + vikrama-pati+karmesha-10 from Chandra

  • Shukra = [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 +Dharmesha-9 from Chandra + vikrama-pati+karmesha-10 from Simha indriya-lagna

Badhaka -sthana = "harming houses"

badhaka -sthana

  • Dharmesha-9 Kuja = the lord for Simha indriya-lagna.

  • Kuja periods may bring some competitive struggles with professors, religious teachers, and father-figures.

  • bhava-9 from Simha indriya-lagna = Mesha = the primary Badhaka Bhava. Fixed lagna typically has some trouble from the father, guru, professor, indoctrinator, catechist, temple, sacred teachings. If Shani occupies Mesha, one may face considerable trouble when dealing with the father.

  • Periods of Mangala may bring forward an agent in the figure of a father, father-role, guru, priest, professor, or some abstract personage known through wisdom-teachings, who (often inadvertently) causes harm to the native via domineering or intimidating behavior, intolerance for alternative viewpoints, and a regal sense of personal entitlement.

  • Badhaka agents must be handled with compassion, in the knowledge that this harm-causing agent is merely a projection of one's own unrealized conflict with sacred teachings, higher philosophies, priestly orders, and with self-proclaimed teachers of truth.

Difficult graha in occupation of dharma bhava or Mangala drishti upon bhava-9 may exacerbate the badhaka agency.

Behari commentary upon

"Mars in Leo is eminent in its own fiery element.

  • It destroys everything unwanted in life

  • and actively seeks spiritual experiences.

You have elected to sacrifice material pleasure for spiritual realization.

This may happen through

  • denial of marital happiness,

  • absence of social associations,

  • loss of family inheritance,

  • or abandonment from one's siblings.

You must stand completely on your own.

Accidents, surgery, problems with the blood or diseases connected with the genito-urinary tract are the worldly trials

  • which impel you toward a higher understanding."

Sacred Jewels for Kuja:- munga for Simha indriya-lagna

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 96

"For the Leo Ascendant

... Mars being lord of the 4th quadrant and 9th house and a trine is very favourable and auspicious planet (yoga karaka)

  • and wearing of Red Coral will be followed by the same beneficial results as in the case of Cancer Ascendant.

Apart from these results, the native will acquire, lands and property, will have fortune , will become virtuous and longevity of his father will be improved.

  • If the Mars is posited in his own sign in the 4th or 9th the beneficial results will become more pronounced.

  • Wearing of a Ruby and the gem stone of the lord of this Ascendant -- along with Red Coral -- will accelerate the beneficial results."


dhanapati-2+ Vriddhi-pati-11

For the Simha native, the internal and external narrative of Budha-talk is all about Budha wants to talk-about, instruct, explain, classify, discriminate, analyze, articulate, and announce re: matters of bhava-2 and bhava-11 :

  • Banks and Collections (2): hoards of value, accumulation, acquisition, storage, history, memory, cintamani * mani * money , collections of value, records, libraries, archives; values, opinions, historical knowledge, beauty, face, mouth, teeth, voice, food, language, speech and song

  • Gains and Goals (11): material income, profit, marketplace associations, networks, financial systems, economies, regulated social participation movements, acquaintances, connections, community, large assemblies, opportunity, goals, objectives, achievement


For the Simha nativity, Budha activates 2 + 11 thus the financial situation ofmarketplace revenues (11) + savings (2) depends largely on the condition of the Kumara.

Automatic Dhanayoga

Budha activates 2-11 ** source of treasury + income identified by the rashi+bhava+drishti where Budha is located.

There are four main wealth houses: 2 = banked savings; 5 = gambling or speculative wins; 9 = assets acquired through faith; and 11 = earned income.

Conversational and sexual Budha becomes a highly benevolent

dhanapati-2 / Vriddhi-pati-11 wealth graha for Simha indriya-lagna. The sources of The treasuries may be found in the bhava and rashi of Budha. Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda * financial well-being arose primarily from profitable sales of his extraordinary books = Budha + lagnesha Surya-5 = creative literature; Budha in Dhanus for humanistic religion.

For Simha indriya-lagna, presuming that Budha is fairly well disposed, periods of dhanapati-2+Vriddhi-pati-11 Budha Budha generates considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as earned income from the marketplace of goods and services.

Budha's materialistic behavior may increase wealth, solicit death, strengthen a second marriage, increase aptitude for languages, improve relations with the family history, intensify the articulatory powers of speech and song, and improve the capacity to store and acquire virtually any type of items of value, from food to furniture to art collections to currency cintamani * mani * money .

Vriddhi-pati-11 Budha articulates and describes the relationships between the members of the marketplace network for the exchange of goods, ideas, and services. Budha can be a major fundraiser and facilitator of setting and achieving goals.

  • If well disposed+ dhanapati-2 + Vriddhi-pati-11 calculating Budha = an excellent graha for the financial professional.

bhukti of maraka dhanapati-2 Budha can be fatal.

Sacred Jewels for Budha - Panna (pure Emerald) for Simha indriya-lagna -

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 101 :

"For the Leo Ascendant,

  • Mercury is the lord of the 2nd (house of financial wealth ) and 11th (house of gains and fulfillment of ambitions).

  • If the native wears an Emerald in the major period of Mercury and his sub-periods, he will get harmony in his family, substantial financial gains, name and fame .

The results will be more pronounced if Mercury be in his own sign in the 2nd or in the 11th."

Guru = Vidyapthi-5+ randhresha-8

Vimshottari Dasha of Brihaspati

Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Simha radical nativity is generally a period of great brilliance and great secrecy.

Guru's mūlatrikoṇa being Dhanus, overall effects of vidya-bhava-5 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of randhrasthana-8.

Because of the role played by Professor Guru for the Simha nativity, and the natural friendship of Guru toward lagnesha Surya, it is a common experience that a steady stream of center-stage roles and charismatic performances would accompany a great secrecy and engagement in undisclosed activities during this 16-year mahadasha.

QUOTATION from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 106

"For the Leo Ascendant Jupiter will be lord of the 5th and 8th houses.

  • Being lord of 5th house, a trine, Jupiter is considered as an auspicious planet for this Ascendant.

  • Consequently it will be beneficial for the native of this Ascendant to wear a yellow sapphire, particularly in the major and sub-period of Jupiter.

  • It will prove more useful if it is worn with a Ruby, the gem stone of the lord of Ascendant. ."


  • bhratru-pati-3 + karmesha-10

  • commerce + governance

  • Shukra = mutual enemy of lagnesha Surya

Karmesha Shukra governs the Career

  • Public Visibility
  • Social Reputation and Respect
  • Elite Positions
  • Leadership Roles
  • Governance Duties
  • Professional Responsibilities

Shukra bhratru-pati-3 (commercial business) + karmesha-10 (governance) = natural capability to lead and govern , either by self-earned wealth (3) or by manual craft such as writing, drawing, planning behaviors.

L-3/Vriddhi-pati-11 Shukra switches gracefully between the public sector and private business, earning wealth from both as one capitalizes on commercial skills when in governing roles and upon government contacts when in private business.

Examples of governing figures famed as personally enriching switch-hitters:

  • [Simha-Chandra] POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon B. Johnson - notorious for reaping huge family-business profits from government-funded supplies, mainly purchased for the Vietnam War.

Leadership capabilities and Style

Simha folk are rather tricky in the leadership role due to Shukra's conflation of self-owned-business (3) and public-interest leadership (10).

  • The Simha nativity empowers governance via the qualities of karma bhava Vrishabha-Urisha according to the strength of Shukra, to make decisions which provide social order and lawfulness , with special emphasis upon matters of :

  • the financial interests of the capitalized classes, "old money", stored wealth, bank accounts, acquisitions, hoarding, food and drink, cattle, jewels, fields and forests, heritage and history , stories and songs, face and voice, recorded knowledge

  • secondarily, Shukra always carries the attributes of Tula-Vanika, and these do contribute to the governance style: alliances, relationships, contracts, agreements, bargains, deals, matches, pairs, diplomacy,

  • Generally, the leadership style features acquisition-oriented qualities of a taste for personal luxury (not always ostentatious, especially for elected politicians)

tends to make promises and vows [Tula] in order to build trust [Tula] which are often overturned (8) when the native makes actual executive decisions (10th = 8th from 3, messages-announcements)

Shani regulates 7 = 10th-from-10th = presuming Shani is reasonably well disposed, Simha are often capable bureaucrats with an pragmatic Shani instinct for step-wise careful climbing up the ranks of the target hierarchy .

Kumbha-Ghata -7 = scientific systems consulting, computerized governance. Politicians = excellent for socially diverse partnerships + wife's help with large-scale community fundraising

Shukra = relative bhratru-pati-3 / karmesha-10 from either Simha indriya-lagna or Simha Chandra

Marriage as a social relationship carries a script of:

  • mentalism (3) and ever-present potential for secretive, sensually motivated extramarital interest (3 = 8th-from-8th)

  • public displays of treasury , luxury, and collections of valuable objects

  • for males, the wife tends to be talkative and professionalized (10). However, as the primary agent of Shukra in the nativity, her life orientation is naturally adversarial to Simha-Surya's pursuit of pure truth [Surya] and self-glorification. She siphons attention away from the native and toward other relationships, whether intimate or merely social.

karmesha-10 Shukra is a particularly good influence upon career, particularly for professions which involves Shukra's karaka portfolio = beauty, wealth, luxury goods, sensual experience, interests of women, themes of marriage and alliance-building, and the interpersonal harmony of relationships.

bhratru-pati-3 Shukra benefits all activities in the communications sector, again with a specialization in sweets: women, luxury, beauty, music, harmonious relationships, and sensual pleasure.

Shukra in strength for the Simha indriya-lagna enhances success in writing, publications, announcements; commercial verbiage of sales, marketing, advertising; relationships with siblings and team-mates; entourage, and ensemble work in any venue.

  • If [uchcha] Chandra or [uchcha] Rahu occupy Karma bhava, the career flourish in matters of women, fashion, luxury, and the social-emotional experience of partnering in human relationships.

For masculine nativities

In addition to Shukra's function as a karaka for marriage as a contractual agreement, Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu represents the feminine-figures = all ladies except mother-figures who are Chandra.

  • From the Simha indriya-lagna+ bhratru-pati-3 and karmesha-10 Shukra is less favorable. A masculine nativity can be predicted to face challenges from the wife's siblings (3) and her commercial undertakings (3). If Shukra is compromised, effects of 3 may include the drain of losses from education or purchase of a too-luxurious home.

  • Nevertheless, there are 10th-house benefits from her ability to raise his social rank in their community; pleasure from dignity of married status.

For the Simha indriya-lagna with Kumbha Chandra

Shukra and Mangala create a special pair which controls 3-4 ++ 9-10.

When both Shukra and Mangala are strong, one = much empowered according to their location.

  • Mangala = [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 +Dharmesha-9 from Simha indriya-lagna + vikrama-pati+karmesha-10 from Chandra

  • Shukra = [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 +Dharmesha-9 from Chandra + vikrama-pati+karmesha-10 from Simha indriya-lagna

Sweet and sensual Shukra as ruler of 3-10 benefits administrative careers. One is well-liked in the office, appreciated by siblings, and seen as a balanced person by the general public. Excellent for customer service and media professions.

Sacred Jewels for Shukra:

Flawless Shukra-ratna diamonds * hira * azira * not advised for Simha indriya-lagna

QUOTATION from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 110

"For the Leo Ascendant,

Venus rules the 3rd and the 10th houses.

Here again Venus is not considered an inauspicious planet for this Ascendant.

If , as ruler of the 10th, Venus is posited in the 6th, 8th or 12th (where he will be exalted)

  • Diamond will help to offset the setbacks in profession etc.

  • If Venus is in his own sign in the 10th, it give rise to two yogas, namely Amala and Maidlavya (one of the Panchamahapurusha yogas).

The effects of these yogas have been described as under:

  • (1) Amala yoga: This yoga is caused when the 10th from the Moon or Lagna is occupied by a benefic (natural) planet. As a result of Amala yoga the person will achieve lasting fame and reputation. His character will be spotless and he will lead a prosperous life.

  • (2) [ Malavya Yoga] is caused if Venus should occupy a quadrant which should be his own or exaltation sign. As a result, the person will have a well developed physique, will be strong minded, wealthy, happy with children and wife, endowed with clean sense organs and renowned and learned.

The good effects of these yogas will get an impetus if a Diamond is worn during the major periods and sub-periods of Venus." [end quote]


rogesha-6 + yuvati-pati-7

Periods of Shani = Tarot 9 of Wands reversed: " Ill health and faltering of the will."

For peaceful marriage, avoid the Shani ratna blue topaz, blue sapphire, lapis lazuli, amethyst.

Pragmatic and conventional Shani makes trouble for Simha marriage. (See Parashara at top of this page.)

yuvati-pati-7 Professor Shani and Professor Surya-lagnesha, are bitter enemies.

For Simha-lagna and Kanya-lagna, one may be held culpable for the failure of brittle, overly regulated, or aging systems. [Shani age.]

  • My Fair Lady 1908-1990 drama-song Rex Harrison acquired the tabloid personality of a heart-breaker and suicide-maker. He was regularly blamed for the untreated mental health issues of the ladies who interacted with him. Throughout the 60's and 70's, when the USA divorce rate began to approach 50%, RH was seen as a culprit of the social collapse of marriage.


For Simha nativities, ruler-of-7 Shani = ruler-of-6 Shani.

  • POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams was married to POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams . A widely respected, hard-working, and productive writer on Constitutional Law, John Adams was a key figure in the establishment of the unprecedented new country USA.

  • Yet Mr. Adams had an adversarial (6) confrontational style of argumentative reasoning (6) which used vicious accusations as a main tactic. Mrs. Adams spent much of her considerable diplomatic energies (Tula-3 diplomatic writing) upon the task of reconciling the enemies (6) that he created. Mr. Adams also suffered numerous health problems (6).

In the Simha personality, matters of 6 and matters of 7 are inextricably conjoined by having Shani as their shared ruler. Yet, each has their own "turf". So long as each partner retains clear personal boundaries, there no requirement to endure severe conflicts in life. One of the rules for inner peace for a Simha native = the life-partner should have "seniority" and work-focused qualities. Indeed the spouse is often distinguished by their elder chronicity or their professional accomplishments. Even if the spouse is younger age-wise, the qualities of sobriety and distaste for flashiness are usually present in their character.

For example, it is reasonable to speculate that the nativity of the Prophet Muhammad should feature either Karkata or Simha indriya-lagna with a well-disposed Shani (also with [uchcha] Surya in the birth month of Rabi' al-awwal) since his first marriage at his age 25 to the 40-year-old successful merchant widow Khadija is accounted to have been quite happy.

Because Professor Shani becomes both the yuvati-pati-7 and the roga-pati-6, marriage is typically both enduring and conflicted. The spouse is often unhappy with marriage conditions Yet, the spouse resists change to the marriage conditions. Much depends upon the role of Shani in the nativity.

"double rogesha-6 " Shani trouble =an especially difficult graha for those nativities in which rogesha-6 from both radix lagna (material enemies) and Chandra lagna (emotional resistance to agreement):


Physical separation of the soul from the flesh-shell is triggered mainly by the Vimshottari period of the "maraka" lords of bhava-2 or bhava-7, which for Simha indriya-lagna = Budha and Shani.

Other cleared-for-departure agents include natural maraka Mangala and Rahu-Ketu giving the effect of a maraka graha ruler.

The Shani drishti to Ayur-bhava (8 ) or even strong Shani in 8 will deliver a fairly long lifespan. Otherwise look to periods of Shani or Budha for death timing. Examples:

  • India-PM 1944-1991 Rajivaratna Gandhi left his terrestrial body in Rahu/Budha bhukti

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr * spirit departed its flesh-body in Shani/Budha bhukti

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda slipped out during a Rahu-Ketu bhukti, which is certainly an available option for those who know how to use it.

However, Shani is still a maraka for Simha indriya-lagna. Shani is an enemy of lagnesha Surya and although Shani does not like material change (and thus Shani by character resists death) Shani is a regulator, so if there are other factors which suggest a Shani-bhukti as the timing agent - for example, conditions of extreme scarcity, then Shani can do the job.

One reliable way to assess the length of life is to examine the life-line on the palm of your pen-holding hand. Yet, even the life-line on the palm can change if the person gains a new lease on life. This can happen, especially when invalidating relationships are replaced with nourishing and validating ones which provide a reason to live!


Traditional Sacred Jewels for Shani * Blue Sapphire * Nilam

from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 115

"For the Cancer and Leo Ascendants,

  • Saturn will respectively be the lord of the 7th house, and 8th house and the 6th and 7th houses.

  • The 6th and 8th are very inauspicious houses and the 7th is a death inflicting (maraka) house.

  • The lords of these Ascendants are also enemies of Saturn.

the natives of these two Ascendants should never wear a Blue Sapphire ."


Rahu's effects for Meena indriya-lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Rahu's effects for Kumbha indriya-lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti. Rahu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Rahu's house; and also Rahu magnifies the effects of the planetary patron of His occupied Rashi.

  • Rahu and Ketu are said to give positive results in the 3rd, 6th, and 11th bhava from the lagna or from Chandra.

  • In addition, some authorities posit that since R-K are exalted in Vrishabha-Vṛścika (per BPHS), R-K tend to produce comfortable and pleasing results when Mangala and Shukra are well-disposed.

  • Numerous other schemes for evaluating the elusive aprakasha graha also exist.

  • More details in the summary provided by Dr. G.S. Kapoor.

Rahu is co-lord of bhava-7Kumbha.

yuga-sthana-7 is not a trine angle from Simha indriya-lagna.

However, during the major period of Rahu, gomedha Rahu-ratna may become a beneficial gem for purposes of enhancing the career (7 = 10th from 10) and deal-making roles such as diplomat or negotiator (7). Rahu is especially gifted in dealing with people from exotic or criminal or otherwise unusual backgrounds.

If agreeable and fair-minded Shukra, lord of match-making and harmonious environments, is strong, then Rahu may be empowered to aid matters of alliance-building and crafting of social [Kumbha] contracts (7).

However, even for these specialized targets, prescribe the Rahu-ratna only if Shukra and occupants of 7 are highly benevolent.

Otherwise, Rahu's somewhat lawless tendency to self-promote and self-elevate without concern for impact on others may create a public backlash toward the end of Rahu mahadasha .

Ketu = 4 + 8

  • Ketu's effects depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti.

  • chidrakaraka Ketu un-connects the effect of any graha sharing Ketu's house

  • Ketu scatters the effects of His planetary lord

  • For more detailed evaluation, see Ketu in 12 bhava.

Ketu = temporal co-lord of bhava- 4 = 9th-from-8th = Vṛścika-Thriketta

  • Ketu = the natural co-regulator of bhava-8 .

For Simha indriya-lagna, Professor Ketu = associated with

  • Mangala = temporal co-regulator of 4 + natural co-regulator of 8.

  • Mangala = Friend of lagnesha Surya

  • Guru = temporal lord of 8-Meena.

  • Mangala = friend of Guru

to predict the effects of Ketu Mahadasha, measure:

  • the influence of Ketu's planetary lord

  • the disposition of both Guru and Mangala

Ketu-ratna Vaidurya

Under certain carefully assessed circumstances, if the planetary patron of bhava-4 and occupants of bandhu bhava are comfortably placed, and a"scattering" non-discriminating effect could be perhaps helpful, the Cat's Eye might aid special cases of settlement and protection for spiritualized purposes, for example the founding of a local retreat-center or monastery (4). These are rare circumstances but they do occur.

Under very special circumstances may provide exceptional results for the spiritual educator looking to establish a mystery school. Especially successful for this unique purpose of continuation of the fire-worshipping priesthood when the radical lagna or Chandra = Ketu-ruled Nakshatra of Magha.

Q: As a strong Simha female (lagna, Chandra, Surya, Mangala, Guru in rashi of Hari!)

... I am Naturally, worried about my prospects for marriage. My parents are pushing for an alliance before I turn 30.

But I love my independent lifestyle! I love my romances (even the heartbreaks) ... I like fashion, travel, living in Europe, going to clubs... I love having my own money to spend as I wish ... I just can't imagine fading into the background so as to promote my husband's career while feeling content to raise children at home.

Will my confident, outgoing nature damage my chances for marriage happiness? I want to please my parents but I am afraid that my marriage will go sour if I feel too boxed in!

A: Marriage is manageable. Yet like most Simha-born, you may need to be super-clear on your expectations and fears, and really take charge of the selection process, in order to obtain a positive result .

As a general rule, Simha indriya-lagna and Karkata indriya-lagna are both benefitted by marrying older, professionally established partners.

Professor Shani activates yuvati bhava tends to impose structures of social control upon the willpower that drives individual choices. This is manageable if the Simha native gains consciousness of the social conformity [Shani] behaviors and learns to coordinate with the larger cultural expectations in a way that brings personal advantage.

It is strongly recommended for most modern people (all birth lagna) to wait until after age 31 to accept a marriage partner.

In other words, wait until the Shani return (age 27-30) and the second Rahu-Ketu opposition (age 27-28) have completed.

After those two major transits are finished, the person can successfully distinguish one's own goals, wishes, desires, and preferences from the imposed safety scaffolding structure of values and tastes that was provided by the parents and by the culture at large.

If you find yourself being forced to choose a spouse before you feel quite ready, this too can be managed psychically. The key is to take proactive psychic control of the process, avoid excessive emotional reactivity, and set a clear image in the mind.

  • One good method is to imagine oneself at various stages of the marriage. Imagine oneself during the negotiation-selection process, on the wedding day, on the 5th anniversary. (Are there children in this image?) Then, envision one's 10th, 20th, 50th, and imagine the funeral of one or the other of the spouses. (Who has predeceased in this image?)

If there is tension or discontent in these imagined scenes, look into one's field of expectation to discover where in the mind one may be carrying inherited conflict from one's mother's marriage experience, one's father's, a sibling perhaps, or other close associate who may be needing confirmation of their own negative experience by seeing it copied in your life.

This sort of psychic "project management" will help to release Shani-imposed negative expectations (fears) from the family lineage, and replace those fears with positive entitlements for your own happiness. This sort of conscious preparation -- for the most important commitment of adult life -- can yield rich rewards of a self-directed, satisfying marriage experience.

Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life's endeavors,

Conditioning of the Mind toward "I"

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • The Buddhism of Tibet

  • trans-ed by Jeffrey Hopkins, with Anne Klein, p.26

"Afflictions are classed as peripheral mental factors and are not themselves any of the six main minds [eye, ear, nose, tongue, body and mental consciousnesses].

However, when any of the afflicting mental factors becomes manifest, a main mind [a mental consciousness] comes under its influence, goes wherever the affliction leads it, and 'accumulates' a bad action.

There are a great many different kinds of afflictions, but the chief of them are desire, hatred, pride, wrong view and so forth. Of these, desire and hatred are chief.

Because of an initial attachment to oneself, hatred arises when something undesirable occurs.

Further, through being attached to oneself the pride that holds one to be superior arises, and similarly when one has no knowledge of something, a wrong view that holds the object of this knowledge to be non-existent arises.

How do self-attachment and so forth arise in such great force? Because of beginningless conditioning, the mind tightly holds to 'I, I' even in dreams, and through the power of this conception, self-attachment and so forth occur.

This false conception of 'I' arises because of one's lack of knowledge concerning the mode of existence of things.

The fact that all objects are empty of inherent existence is obscured and one conceives things to exist inherently; the strong conception of 'I' derives from this.

Therefore, the conception that phenomena inherently exist is the afflicting ignorance that is the ultimate root of all afflictions."
