Means a virgin and represents Sakti or Mahamaya.
The sign in question is the sixth Rasi or division, and indicates that there are six primary forces in Nature.
These forces have different sets of names in Sanskrit philosophy.
According to one system of nomenclature, they are called by the following names*:
(1) Parasakty; (2) Gnanasakti; (3) Itchasakti (will-power); (4) Kriytisakti; (5) Kundalinisakti; and (6) Matrikasakti.
The six forces are in their unity represented by the Astral Light.**
* Parasakti:--Literally the great or supreme force or power. It means and includes the powers of light and heat.
Gnanasakti:--Literally the power of intellect or the power of real wisdom or knowledge. It has two aspects."

| Kanya = 12th-from-7th
= necessary (but uncomfortable) transitional phase
naturally seeks rebalancing to recover the middle-path
via the methods of Medication, Mediation, and
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 unrepayable 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.
imbalance-seeking-a-remedy intermediate state = a necessary phase during a maximally difficult karmic 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 Thula - 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 (Thula, 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 Thula'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
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 Zukra) 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 karma 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
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.

| 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 (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, public responsibility, high-visibility governance roles
Nilamani = blue sapphire = Shani vidyapathi-5 bhagya creative, intelligent, child-generating confidence + rogesha-6 ministries of service, medicine, logical arguments. Wear nilam ONLY during Shani bhukti s
Hira = diamond = Zukra Dharmesha-9 wise, world-traveling, philosophical + dhanapati-2 wealth-attracting, ornaments, sense pleasures, treasuries
Surya ratna = no, because Surya rules = dissolving dushthamsha-12 .
Chandra ratna = no, generally -- because Chandra = vriddhipati-11 . Specific exceptions however for periods of Chandra, see below.
Mangala ratna = no-no-no, because Mangala a natural enemy of lagnesha Budha = bhratrupathi-3 and randhresha-8
Budha ratna = yes always, because ratna for the lagnesha is always beneficial, as Budha = karmesha-10 boosting career
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 yuvatipathi-7
Zukra ratna = yes, unless person is afraid of flesh-death. Zukra = marana-karaka dhanapati-2 and Zukra is also the excellent dharma-pati
Shani ratna = yes, with caution - because Shani = vidyapathi-5 and rogesha-6
Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's ruler
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 the Kanya native 's personal goals inter alia.
Cataloguing Disenfranchisement and the Dissolution of Agreements
In personal life, the Kanya native is 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.
Thula = negotiating solutions.
All of Kanya's disabilities can be corrected by intentionally
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 re: nearly any academic discipline or subject matter.
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)
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-7th = 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 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.
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."
