[Kanya - Parthya] specializes in service, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, disagreement, medical treatment, remedial strategies, argumentation, and the virginal state.

  1. Surya-ruled Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman suggests exploitive conditions which can evoke an argumentative political or theatrical response. Much hand-waving and declaiming. Kanya Chandra planetary patron of 11th-from-1 may contribute a familiar-face public recognition, an increased accusatory logic and a capacity to work with large groups.

  2. When Chandra-ruled Hasta - Savitra marks the rising nakshatra, one responds to imbalance-seeking-a-remedy with comforting acceptance, manual caretaking, and soothing routines of service. Hasta has a general preference for a quieter lifestyle of drawing, writing, feeling the rhythms of life, and caring for family. Kanya Chandra planetary patron of 11th-from-1 increases the earning initiative.

  3. Mangala-ruled Chitra - Spica * Tvastri nakshatra in the radical lagna approaches imbalance-seeking-a-remedy with a designer's urge to straighten and correct it. May produce a hand-crafty surgeon, writer, builder, architect, or master planner.

Kanya = 12th-from-yuvatisthana

= necessary (but uncomfortable) transitional phase

Kanya's characteristic imbalance-seeking-a-remedy naturally seeks rebalancing to recover the middle-path via the methods of Medication, Mediation, and Remediation .

At the physical level, graha in Kanya may signal a bodily imbalance-seeking-a-remedy involving great weakness, toxic conditions of the flesh, digestive disorders, and particularly states of dizziness or nausea.

At the emotional level, graha in Kanya may be plagued by self-doubt and harassed by enemies.

At the financial level, graha in Kanya 8th-from-11th may signify an upheaval in normal conditions of gainfulness and interruption of profit-making via: exploitation by usurers, poor judgment in financial matters, and apparently un-repay-able debt.

At the level of social relationship, graha in Kanya may have agency of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy expectations that can produce interpersonal conflict and toxic Other-blaming.

Nevertheless, this imbalance-seeking-a-remedy intermediate state = a necessary phase during a maximally difficult pre-incarnationally planned transition for the Divine Self. Kanya represents the specific interim phase :

  • from the saturated sthira "unmovable" state of Simha that is regally confident, self-centered, intelligent, and self-sufficient - but also potentially arrogant and prone to hubris
  • into the chara "initiating" state of Other-oriented, mutual-benefit, always-bargaining Tula - Vanika which enforces the yogic discipline of availability, awareness and response to the partner

Kanya = the relatively weak, relatively disempowered, static transitional dvisva intermediate zone between Simha's glorious but often excessively egoistic self-centrality into the corrective initiation of true, mutually-responsive human partnership.

From Hubris to Humility

During the cycle of incarnations, when Simha has become over-developed and the ego-membrane is bloated, like all sthira rashi, the Sign of Kings will self-destruct and begin a cycle of rebirth which propels the consciousness into remedial humility of service = Kanya.

Graha in Kanya have agency of transition from a fixed state (Simha, sthira) to an initiating state (Tula, chara). In this rickety and often toxic condition one has relatively little power to change the environment. The exploitive agents within Kanya's environment must be accepted - generally on uncomfortable terms - until one's own role in constructing the unfair arrangements is revealed and released.

Death of the King

Kanya's disenfranchisement is the consequence of its intermediate status. The imperative empowerment of Kingship is gone. Graha in Kanya have evacuated from the self-assuredness of Simha and are now striving for Tula's balance.

This passage marking the death of the king (2nd-from-Simha) is often turbulent, bumpy and uneven.

The Kanya-zone creates a power vacuum which provides many exploitive opportunities for predatory Royal Wannabe's.

Due to the death of entitlements and subconscious awareness that it is going to be a long and winding road toward regaining it (another 10 rashi ahead!) graha in Kanya often acquire a quality of exhaustion and despair.

The not-quite-arrived Kanya graha may produce a physical, mental, emotional, or financial form ofmotion sickness.

The death of the King opens into a scene that features a strong presence of untrustworthy, uncontracted, illegitimate power-seekers who stimulate frustration of the victim yet lacking much power to control external forces.

Kanya-imbalance-seeking-a-remedy is associated with vertigo, nausea and digestive ailments. In frustration with long-lasting conditions of disarray and looking for a quick-fix, Kanya graha (particularly sugary Shukra) may become self-medicating. During a long siege of internal argumentation, Kanya's attempts to right itself during this bumpy ride may produce compensating behaviors such as chemical or sexual addiction.

Best Approach to the Ubhaya Stasis

The best tool to use to resolve Kanya's akashic-memory pattern of inappropriately accommodating, unfair agreements is the logic of Budha. Used assiduously, bantering Budha's neutral and accurate reasoning will quickly expose the false expectations which are creating the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

The nature of all karma is ignorance. At the moment of obtaining consciousness of the fact [Budha] that one is indeed creating the conditions of conflict and servitude from the basis of one's own subconscious beliefs and expectations , One may move speedily out of the old contract and into the new confidence.

(" I must remain in this abusive marriage" ;"I should stay in this exploitive job because I won't be able to find anything better" ; I was born with addictive personality" ;"I'm not worthy of fair treatment" ';"All laws are unjust." )

11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy-Sahangha

befriends "Karkata-06" types

  • the home-landers, farmers, home-owners, lands-men, grounds-men

  • parents and caretakers; stewards and custodians; schools and schoolteachers,

  • cultivators, gardeners, harvesters of the foods of the sea

  • those who repeat and defend the customary ethnic habits

  • patriots, defenders of the lifestyle of a settled people

  • nourishers, nurturers, feeders,

  • protectors of the weakest: young and elderly

  • builders of shelter, homes, hogar, hovel

  • those who care for buildings and vehicles

  • the security-oriented, police; boundary-guardians

  • those quietly detached (12th-from) with drama, fashion or politics [Simha]

Kanya often forms a friendly, community-based relationship with one's parents and former schoolteachers [Old Pathways Karkata], by remaining within the network of those who share the customary habits of one's childhood [Karkata]. A friend to the farmer and landsman, thus generally a good neighbor within the community of property-owners [Karkata].

The Moon must be well-situated to support the full development of Community that includes one's parents, teachers, and fellow homesteaders.

General Suitability of Gems for Kanya Lagna

  • Panna = emerald = Budha lagnesha-1 lagnesha = physical vitality + karmesha-10 career, profession, civic duty, public responsibility, high-visibility governance roles

  • Nilamani = blue sapphire= Shani vidya-pati-5 bhagya creative, intelligent, child-generating confidence + rogesha-6 ministries of service, medicine, logical arguments. Wear nilam ONLY during Shani bhukti

  • Hira = diamond = Shukra dharmesha-9 wise, world-traveling, philosophical + dhanapati-2 wealth-attracting, ornaments, sense pleasures, treasuries

  1. Surya ratna = no, because Surya activates = dissolving dushthamsha-12 .

  2. Chandra ratna = no, generally -- because Chandra = vriddhi-pati-11 . Specific exceptions however for periods of Chandra, see below.

  3. Mangala ratna = no-no-no, because Mangala a natural enemy of lagnesha Budha = bhratru-pati-3 and randhresha-8

  4. Budha ratna = yes always, because ratna for the lagnesha is always beneficial, as Budha = karmesha-10 boosting career

  5. Guru ratna = maybe, if Guru is also a favorable bhava-lord from Chandra, because Guru has a good social-relations portfolio as bandesha-4 and yuvati-pati-7

  6. Shukra ratna = yes, unless person is afraid of flesh-death. Shukra = marana-karaka dhanapati-2 and Shukra is also the excellent dharma-pati

  7. Shani ratna = yes, with caution - because Shani = vidya-pati-5 and rogesha-6

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

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord

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

Cataloguing Disenfranchisement and the Dissolution of Agreements

In personal life, Kanya-born = prone to carry out "Argumentation Dharma" in marriage and family relations.

  • The common expression of human argument is simply kvetching, complaining, and developing the mental practice of victimology .

  • Argumentation tends to become a repeating litany of reasons why the relationship is unsustainably unbalanced, contractual terms are not capable of being fulfilled, satisfaction is not ever expected to be obtained, etc.

    Kanya = defining problems.

    Tula = negotiating solutions.

All of Kanya's disabilities can be corrected by intentionally

  • reducing expectations of human intelligence and

  • increasing faith in divine intelligence.


Logical Argument

Logos * The Word

  • Similar to Budha's other rashi, Mithuna, Kanya is concerned with mental transactions and communication. However Kanya's specialty is the logical categorization of information with the ultimate purpose of Organizing a detailed argument.

  • Kanya nativities = concerned in this life with establishment of the word-based argumentative reasoning process. As a result, Kanya emphasizes the rules of argument in preference to the content of the claims.

  • Kanya = natural analyst WRT nearly any academic discipline or subject matter.

Similar to Chattering Kumara's other rashi, Mithunaya, Kanya is concerned with mental transactions and communication.

However Kanya's specialty is the logical categorization of information with the ultimate purpose of organizing a detailed argument.

  • The Kanya-lagna native is concerned in this life with establishment of the word-based argumentative reasoning process. As a result, Kanya emphasizes the rules of argument in preference to the content of the claims.

  • Budha-ruled Kanya is a"quick study" who rapidly acquires vocabulary, methodology, and expertise.

  • 'victimology' (the problematizing argumentation of ego-attachment to suffering)



plant_Medicine.jpg Budha = Hermes = the wings on the caduceus

  • Attention to the organization and planning of detailed arguments may lead to vivid success in academic, scientific, and political professions.

  • Diagnosis has an essential intuitive component = Meena; communication between physician and patient = Mithuna; and treatment plan = Kanya. If intuitive Meena is also strong, Kanya can be brilliantly gifted in medical practice .

  • Kanya's ability to inventory and catalogue facts may generate a tremendous knowledge of medicines, treatment modalities, systems of medical thought, and risk factors. (The same medical genius is also often present when several strong graha gather in bhava-6.)

  • Other human services ministry such as social work and police work with criminals is also supported by Kanya problem-solving mentality.


Internal Criticism and Self-Doubt

As the natural sixth rashi, Kanya's position in 12th-from-yuvatisthana = loss of balance, is always problematic. 7th = trust. Self-doubt arises in the human mind, on the basis of a lack of trust.

  • There are many benefits to a well-composed logical argument, but these benefits obtain only when the mind is calm and objective, free of emotional interference. Mixed with even the slightest amount of past-life trauma, guilt, anger, or vindictiveness, the Kanya rashi can become a bitter terrain, littered with the corpses of mental war.

  • The two largest demons of mental health are not anger, grief, addiction, lust or rage - but rather, internal criticism and self-doubt.

  • Except for Budha, who gives very excellent results in Kanya, most graha suffer some negative impact in the sign of"dissolution of agreement" .

Natural communities, friendship networks, and sangha

Karkata: befriends the home-landers, home-owners, parents and caretakers; stewards and custodians;

those less concerned with drama, fashion or politics; schools and schoolteachers, those who care for buildings and vehicles; the security-oriented

Kanya dislikes Kumbha

  • however, Budha and Shani are mutually friendly

  • this shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle = not extremely hostile

  • the Kanya-Kumbha angle exemplifies the permanent tension between"theory" (Kumbha, scientific principles) and"practice" (Kanya, argumentation, logic)

  • one frequent stress point However, when both Kanya and Kumbha are strong in the nativity = the tense relation between mother's siblings [Kanya] versus father's siblings [Kumbha]

6th-from- kanya = Kumbha = things toward which Kumbha is hostile

  • Kanya likes every shade of green and dislikes purple-violet colors [Kumbha]

  • Kanya likes the natural and dislikes the artificial

  • Kanya likes the workplace but dislikes the marketplace (Kumbha, agora)

  • Kanya likes to exploit servants, workers, slaves, employees; and dislikes labor unions, social opportunity movements, and group empowerments [Kumbha]

  • Kanya likes applied science, the medical clinic, physicians, logical disease-treatment plans and properly tested [Budha] drugs; but dislikes theoretical science, curative technologies that utilize the body's electrical network, and irrational or untested popular cure-alls [Kumbha]

  • Parthya likes the servitude of maidens, virgins, bachelors, and unmarried persons who are socially weakened because they lack an equity contract; Kanya dislikes the empowerment provided by networks of friendship, voluntary associations, big participatory gatherings [Kumbha]

  • Kanya prefer s the mother's siblings (6) and dislikes the father's siblings (11)

  • Kanya likes the busy harvest season (6) and dislikes the cold fallow season (11)

  • Kanya likes toxins; and dislikes sterility [Kumbha]

  • Kanya likes the body's digestive system and assimilation of food nutrient and dislikes body's nervous system including the skin

  • Kanya likes discrimination, inequity, accusations, blaming, conflict and dislikes collective consciousness, social scientific viewpoint [Kumbha]

  • Kanya likes poverty; Kumbha likes networks of financial well-being distribution

  • Kanya likes divorce and alienation; dislikes community and friendship

Cleaning the Psychic and Physical Space

H.H. Tenzin Gyatso,

Path to Bliss: A Practical Guide to Stages of Meditation

  • Geshe Thubten Jinpa (Trans.), Christine Cox (Ed.)

" The environment where you are doing the meditation should be properly cleaned.

While cleaning,

  • you should cultivate the motivation that since you are engaged in the task of accumulating great stores of merit by inviting the hosts of buddhas and bodhisattvas to this environment, it is important to have a clean place.

  • You should see that all the external dirt and dust around you is basically a manifestation of the faults and stains within your own mind.

  • You should see that the most important aim is to purge these stains and faults from within your mind.

Therefore, as you cleanse the environment, think that you are also purifying your mind.

Develop the very strong thought that by cleaning this place you are inviting the host of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who are the most supreme merit field,

and that you will subsequently engage in a path that will enable you to purge your mind of the stains of delusions."
