QUOTATION = Das/ Behari comment on Tula indriya-lagna
"A Libra Ascendant usually bestows a long face, an attractive appearance, tender eyes, and sparsely set teeth.
You are also subject to contradictory thoughts and actions;
Your friends and benefactors tend to be well-placed individuals,
Physically you appear strong and healthy
You may have a strong desire for artistic achievement but fail to actualize it.
Saturn is a very powerful planet for you.
Jupiter is also very good.
Fond of helping the lowly, and so much so that you may use base acts to achieve your goals.
You respect spiritual leaders because you respect principle centered persons,
but you are often too driven to stick strictly to principles yourself,
but would rather see to it that the objective gets carried out."
Tula in radix Lagna = Chandra in Tula
Tula is a chara "initiating" Other-oriented, mutual-benefit, always-bargaining environment which enforces the yogic discipline of availability, awareness and response to the partners.
Career * profession public reputation vocation
Although the 10th navamsha must be considered in any profile of career, it can be said generally that Tula nativities tend toward careers that match Karkata themes of security, shelter, stability, schooling, rhythmic undulation , nourishment, rootedness, caretaking, protection, parenting, and all things maritime.
Also, due to the [Yogakaraka] role of bandesha-4 and vidya-pati-5 Shani, a career in education is well-supported. Shani's bhava and rashi influence the specialization of the type of school, its students, and associated scholarship of the native.
As planetary patron of 4 and 2nd-from-4, Shani contributes expertise in matters of foundation culture (4) and related topics of foundational language, song, speech (2nd-from). In addition Shani confers lineage treasury of the root culture, including linguistic values, moral values, aesthetic values, and financial values. Naturally, Professor Shani prefers to confer these culturally-determined, received values in a strict, unchanging manner.
It cannot be overemphasized that the 10th navamsha and the role of the ruler of the 10th navamsha within the radix are also leading predictors. The factors of career must be synthesized to produce a prediction.
Nevertheless, a broad tendency for Tula-born is to establish [Chandra] careers in foundational, grounding, protectionist areas of social order (10).
Careers in Chandra related industry are most probable for the Tula nativity. It is important to assess the rashi-bhava-drishti situation of Professor Chandra to fine-tune any predictions.
Chandra-ruled karma-sthana may favor careers in schooling from adult to child * with some preference for adolescents (5) adults due to yogakaraka Shani. Tula folk can be influential educational leaders and are often found governing culturally-responsive school hierarchies.
Tula nativities also lead in Chandra-related fields such as housing, real-estate, building construction, transportation of land and sea, shipping and oceans, environmental protection, and the institutional governance of these sectors.
Chandra also concerns all matters of shelter, protection and defense, policing of boundaries, maintenance of the root-culture, agriculture, fishing and farming, and other undertakings of a people in their place of settlement.
The personality often displays a natural affinity for bargaining , arranging, mutually accommodating, deal-making, brokerage, negotiation, seeking balance of weights; parity, diplomacy; design

Tula befriends Simha-05 types
If Surya = svakshetra, the Tula-born becomes very selective in the choice of friends and may consider only the truly brilliant ones as suitable company for voluntary association.

There are exceptions to all of these general rules.
Exceptions are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and one's personal goals inter alia.
"An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna-Lord will make the native associated with the king in a great manner."

Natural communities, friendship networks, and sangha
Identifies with Partners and Pleasures
Nativity = Tula indriya-lagna or Tula Chandra = strongly identified with peer relationships and fair agreements .
Barring damage to dhana-bhava or to the dhana-pati, most natives of Vrishabha and Tula become financially privileged and knowledgeable, over time.
One may be socially most comfortable in the advocate or peer-adviser role and in company of other match-makers and balancers, and may prefer the social environments of materially elegant, enriched, luxurious cultures.
Tula-born are typically very aesthetic, with an advanced sensitivity to balance in art and design. A highly developed Shukra when paired with [uchcha] Shani may become an extraordinary diplomat and agent of social justice .
For Tula indriya-lagna, the character, placement, drishti re: gracious, acquisitive lagnesha Shukra will determine the conditions of social satisfaction.
Growth-Challenging Vimshottari Dasha calendar periods
for the Tula-born
In general, the most growth-challenging life periods for any lagna occur during the Vimshottari dasha lordship of graha which rule no trikona in the nativity.
Easier bhukti-pati = Shukra, Shani, Budha
Even when some features of the life experience are growth-challenging due to evocation of the akashic-memory pattern of their non-trine bhava (8, 4, 12) the effects of their trikona will be rewarding enough that one will plod along with reasonable amounts of validation from society and spiritual hope.
Moderate Periods = Chandra, Surya
Difficult Periods = Guru, Mangala
One of the reasons that Tula-born = significantly over-represented amongst the lagna of political leaders and captains of industry = the "personal" graha - Chandra karmesha-10 , Budha Dharmesha-9 , and Shukra lagnesha-1 - are all good house lords.
Tula-born are arrangers, negotiators and bargainers; they naturally seek to form alliances.
However, it is the remarkable [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 + vidya-pati-5 Shani who yokes the house of upbringing and schooling (4) to the house of genius and personal intelligence (5).
The Tula-born tends very much to be a good student who is able to coordinate the old roots, folk customs and established cultural norms of one's own people (4) with the channeled divine intelligence often called 'genius'. Tula = thus good at games (5) especially politics(5) and also respectful [Shani]
Workplace leadership issues for the Tula-born
Strict, punitive, lawful Shani sees tolerant, forgiving, emotional Chandra as an enemy.
Despite their natural, protective kindness in leadership roles, the Tula-born may become associated with a soft, ineffective, inconsistent or overly feminized [Chandra] leadership style.
Some Tula nativities contain powerful corrections to this Tula-lagna leadership disability.
On the plus side, L -10 Chandra = intensely emotionally patriotic. Tula's protection of homeland is perceived as a palpable emotion of devotion to the people and ethnic customs of the homeland is generally a trusted feature of their leadership regime.
If Chandra is positioned at a favorable angle from karma-bhava, public leadership prospects are improved.
Chandra in bhava that are located 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 from karma-bhava are better suited
, for the Tula-born, Chandra-Tula, Chandra-Vṛścika, Chandra-Makara, Chandra-Meena, and Chandra-Mesha are better suited for leadership roles.
there may be improved public appreciation of one's parental style during periods of Chandra in these locations.
However, even with the more favorable placements, Tula leaders may struggle to overcome emotional softness in order to appear strictly lawful in their professional social-ordering and regulatory roles.
Crazy-making opposite style workplace communication issues for the Tula-born:
Philosophical vs. Technical
Wise, inclusive Guru sees argumentative, discriminating Budha as an enemy.
vikrama-pati+rogesha-6 Guru activates 2 natural bhava of Budha.
Guru substitutes philosophical long-view teaching behavior in Budha environments where short-term, superficial, technical collaboration is normally required.
Periods of Guru = problematic for Tula indriya-lagna folk. the native may become unpopular at work.
The Tula person tends to talk in terms of broad conceptual knowledge [Guru] when it is time to use short-term, pragmatic information [Budha]
The Tula person tends to go into teacher-preacher configuration [Guru] when the workplace situation calls for collaborative, twinning, cooperative behavior [Budha]
The natural worlds of Budha = commercial business, announcements and reports, short-term clinical assessment, accusative litigation, and normal daily exchange of trivial information. In Budha's realms, the Tula-born may give the impression of being a bossy know-it-all, straying off target, and creating mountains out of molehills.
rogesha-6 = the problematizer. Guru rogesha-6 produces a style of problematization (framing and describing a problem) that is often far too religious or moralistic for the mundane clinical environment of bhava-6.
Guru tries to solve daily problems from a higher philosophical perspective. Coworkers may feel that neither the staff nor the patients-clients-customers have time for philosophical rumination nor deep discussions upon the meaning of life.
They want to get in, get the process done, and get out. The Tula-born may be seen as an obstacle to efficient workflow in many cooperative workplace settings.
Dharmesha-9 + ruler-of-12 Budha governs the two natural bhava of Guru.
Periods of Budha are less difficult overall due to the Kumara's auspice as dharma-pati
The ceremonially ritualized temple and university environment (9) and the reflectively imaginative and clairsentient private sanctuary environments (12) are NOT places that evoke natural teacher-preacher-believer behaviors.
Budha imposes logical rules of evidence upon matters of religious belief [Guru]. Budha is unable to prima facie accept, without credible explanation , the efficacy of temple discourses nor accept"on faith" the guidance of dreams, imagination, meditation or clairsentient apprehension.
The two main problematics (endless argumentative loops)
generated by Budha when He encounters Guru's two bhava of religion =
Often the Tula -born experiences periods of Budha as intellectually frustrating
In matters of dharma-bhava and vyaya-bhava, Budha the Analyzer cannot accept Guru's guidance on faith
Budha wants to instruct, explain, classify, discriminate, and articulate human religious traditions, priestly sacraments, and meditative visions.
Dharmesha-9 +ruler-of-12 Budha the questioner = particularly challenged by attributes of religious culture [Guru] that explicitly forbid or transcend questioning such as dogma, orthodoxy, scriptural 'fundamentalism', priestly empowerment, and assertions of holy mystery based on unaccountable or unexplainable phenomena.
[Tula ]..."Literally means scale. It refers to the seventh sign of the zodiac also known as Libra. Tula also means one's position or stance, which is similar to one's weight on a scale.
The word 'Tula' is used throughout Indian languages to mean one's position.
This process of judgment can be likened to the balance of a scale."~~ Das Goravani Writing
In classical Greek, the seventh sign = "yugos " the yoke. (Sometimes spelled 'zugos' or 'zygos'.)
Yugos = a balance, scales, a yoke, or a slave bound to a master. Yugos = a common term in the koine Greek of the Christian scriptures 'New Testament'.
