Bhava 1 = 1st navamsha = 1st from Makara Chandra

Appearances = Makara-Draco = Capricorn

Bhava 1 = Appearances, Physical Form

= competition for social validation. In order to win the competition a person needs to be born with a healthy, vital, well-coordinated combination of physical behaviors and social traits.

Lagnesha Shani -Saturn : Karmic Cleanup governs a svabhava of enemy Kuja .

By character, the Makara native is materially savvy, orderly in personal habit, and respectful of social rank. In particular, the native favors a Shani-style careful, step-wise method of self-definition and ultimate residence at the top of some variety of social hierarchy

  • UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 * Makara sthana-1 contains [nīcha-bhanga] Guru yuti [uchcha] Mangala while Mangala parivartamsha Shani-11

Makara seeks to develop the physical personality identity through association with prestigious public activities, leadership responsibilities, and qualities of the father's family history.

Makara natives self-identify as persons of dignity and capability, particularly in tasks associated with social ordering and governance ..

The personality integrity expresses an inherent affinity for entitlements of bureaucratic office, hierarchical function, and organized group formations. the native is particularly influenced by The father's family of origin and the spouse's mother.

  • the native 's identity is particularly influenced by one's social rank (whether favorably or not); one prefers a lawful response to life.

Makara natives are generally hard-working, procedural, respectable folk who have a strong socio-legal interest in executive leadership .. They strive to maintain a competitive but regulated personality and physical appearance.

Makara Appearance = Chandra-Makara-Draco * comforted by hierarchy * sensitive to class-status * needs ritual ordering

Appearance depends significantly on the Shani's condition - rashi, sthana, co-tenants, drishti, etc..

Makara-lagna = a vata-influenced = blue-toned cast to their complexion, a very slightly opaque blue-stone-colored patina (ranging from blue sapphire to darkest lapis-azuli) relative to the genetic pigmentation patterns of one's people.

Lagnesha Shani's condition along with the lord of the Moon's nakshatra = determiners of the ultimate outcome of the physical appearance.

As a general rule Makara natives have highly conventional fashion taste and auric appearance with few remarkable distinctive physical features. The Makara native intends to acquire positions of public respect, and to do so one should look recognizable, rather like Everyman. Except for the slight tendency toward a bluish complexion, Makara represents the solid center norm for their gene pool.

Bhava 2 = 2nd navamsha = 2nd from Makara Chandra

  • Values, Treasuries of financial well-being and knowledge, family history, collections and acquisitions, food

Dhana Bhava-2 = Kumbha-Ghata = Ordered Networks

Graha in Bhava-2 expression prize * price * appreciation * preciousness or changes to the appreciativeness of the family (2) toward the native. The type of appreciation is determined by the character of the graha.

Shani governs a svabhava of Shani's good friend Shukra.

Values are conceptually ordered and scientific in character, but there is an element of socially progressive belief and values-based behavior .

Kumbha moves out of the rigid, reliable 'social pyramid' model of elite governance and into the more flexible, less steady 'lateral network' model of popular governance.

Kumbha features a distinctive mix of Professor Shani cooperating and co-ruling with Professor Rahu in bhava-2 (values). One holds a treasury of knowledge and financial well-being that expresses conventional interpretations of elite-governed social law-and-order plus several unique"Kumbha-esque" tenets of conviction that some minority or social underclass group should enjoy sudden Rahu-style upliftment into a higher social station .

One's own family-history ideology, style of talk and song, artistic and historical knowledge may be reduced to the common and banal, but Makara's values are directed in part by Rahu, and one will Therefore, push the envelope to develop multi-cultural, multi-ethnic values while the family history(2) is indeed for the Makara native a grand unity of the Human Family.

Earned wealth is set by bhava-11, but ability to retain wealth is determined by bhava-2. When Professor Shani along with Professor Rahu jointly rule bhava-2, the more conservative practices for wealth-hoarding appeal to the native but one is also capable of taking great risks with one's accrued savings.

There may be astonishing wealth due to exotic conditions in the family history or to one's remarkable knowledge of history

  • UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2 * yogakaraka Shukra-Kumbha -2 (wealth of the family of origin) accepts amplifying, risk-taking drishti from communicative Mithunaya Rahu-6

Surya in bhava-2 * the family is political and often in control of hidden resources. their style of showing appreciation to the native depends upon the treasury that one brings into the family coffers.

The father is primarily concerned with maintaining the financial well being of the lineage. Father may be involved in banking, archives, storage, collections, conservation, value, traditional knowledge, genetic breeding, historical records. Patriarchal figures are prone toward self-righteousness and usually the father is the solar center of the lineage.

Family may be bureaucrats and governing functionaries. They prefer to operate under guise of social conformity and lawfulness, but their identity is not as it appears.

Surya occupies Makara * ruler of 8 resides in 2

Chandra in bhava-2 * the family is sensitive and routinized in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Mother may be primarily concerned with maintaining the financial well being of the lineage. She can be involved with banking, archives, storage, collections, conservation, value, genetic breeding, lineage knowledge, historical records. Mother is often the center of this lineage which features pale, gently radiant moonglow faces.

The family lineage is deeply identified with the Old Ways (Soma) but feels a need to systematize the values of the traditional folkways.

Chandra-Kumbha * ruler of 7 resides in 2

Mangala in bhava-2 * the family is competitive and outspoken in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Brothers are dominating and vigorous. Often an athletic or warrior lineage. The native and the brothers are concerned with financial well-being, which is typically present at birth and energetically pursued by the native. The family may be dynamically successful in their pursuit of material treasures, particularly conserving wealth derived from Mangala acts such as military invasion, forceful explorations, engineering, weaponry, surgical tools, driving, diving, drilling, plumbing, plowing, excavating, explosives.

Kumbha-Mangala-2 occupies bhava-2 kutumbha (family of origin)

Mangala bhukti of the Vimshottari Dasha generate experiences related to voice, face, speech, song, treasuries, libraries, and collected assets of the family (4).

For the Makara indriya-lagna, vriddhi-pati-11 Mangala is a fruitful graha.

Periods of Mangala support gains of financial income-11 and obtainment of education, lands, houses and vehicles-4.

Under the influence of Mangala bandesha-4 one may buy a farm, acquire a car, found a school or build a house.

These same Kumbha-Mangala-2 periods can also increase the economic income, energize the friendship network, and help to gain the goals and achievements (11) that are important in one's own values system.

When lagnesha Shani transits gochara via the rashi of Mangala, Shanicarya may deliver a strong "pinch" of resistance to innovation and stiffened physical movements.

Mangala-Kumbha * ruler of 4-11 resides in 2 * dhanayoga

Budha in bhava-2 * the family is communicative and gesturing in their style of showing appreciation to the native. Younger siblings of either gender may be managers of the financial well being of the lineage. Siblings and cohort-members can be involved with banking, archives, storage, collections, conservation, value, genetic breeding, lineage knowledge, historical records. Siblings are often active in the center of the family lineage.

Lineage expression tends to be scientific, futuristic, focused on connectivity and inter-linkage.

Budha-Kumbha * ruler of 6-9 resides in 2

Guru in bhava-2 * the family is expansive and inclusive in their style of showing appreciation to the native. In the nativity of a wife, her husband, represented by dhava-karaka Guru, is a curator of the marriage finances. In the nativity of a husband, one's financial holdings are influenced by the paradigm of belief. One's own knowledge of values and history is expanded by the presence of teacher-preachers in the family lineage. Scientific theory may play a central role in the family tradition.

Guru-Kumbha * ruler of 12-3 resides in 2

Shukra in bhava-2 *the family is balanced, aesthetic, and aligned to financial well-being in their style of showing appreciation to the native. For a husbandly nativity, Shukra indicates the wife. For either husband or wife, Shukra indicates sister, sisters-in-law, aunts, and female associates are lovers of luxury and beautiful in a mysterious way. The native often has a charismatically attractive voice. The sisterly-ones are concerned with financial well-being, which is typically present at birth and improved by the contractual, agreement-making abilities of the family's women and the native.

Shukra-Kumbha * yogakaraka ruler of 5-10 resides in 2 * dhanayoga

Shani in bhava-2 * the family is delayed or stalled in their style of showing appreciation to the native, but in time the necessary friendships will arrive. Shani is entirely comfortable in svakshetra Kumbha where He regulates social-electronic interconnectivity. Shanicarya casts drishti into 4-8-11 straitening conditions in the childhood home, imposing strictures in the foundational education, limiting the inheritance, and slowing the pace of economic gains. The material treasuries are slowly and dependably gained via properly ordered social participation networks.

The family carries a weight of perceptual limitation due to materialism and an overarching concern with associative and distributive economic systems as these networks connect the present to the future. Agents of the government, officers of the social order, the elderly, hierarchs, and other Shani-figures may limit and restrain the family's acquisitions. Shani produces restraint and social obligations upon the lineage, constraining but not denying wealth acquired via community linkage procedure and protocol. Family is often involved in the social governance traditions.

Shani in bhava-2 * steady time-structured values-fulfillment * scarcity of precious resources * must preserve historic traditions * must gather * must catalog * obstructionist family-of-origin * must remember * cautious use of words * boney face * tense eyes * class-conscious speech * speakers' fatigue * chronic financial insufficiency * undernourished eye-teeth * must use old libraries * cold dried food hoard * limited sight * ossified heritage * language regulator * appreciates ignorance * maintains treasuries of proven knowledge * elders impose know-nothing rules

Shani-Kumbha * mūlatrikoṇa 0-20 deg. * lagnesha ruler of 1-2 resides in 2

Rahu in bhava-2 * The family is ambitious and seeking social mobility. Often the lineage is irregular in some fashion; most Typically, an imposter from another line is claiming legitimacy in the family line (usually a case of disguised parentage. Rahu's angle from Chandra will reveal this impostor.). Rahu-2 indicates a craving to expediently obtain the privileges accorded to the class of bankers, hoarders, treasurers, and preservers.

May an obsessive collector of futuristic things, and use this collection as a platform for social ascendance. Kumbha favors regulated systems; the family's response to the native is often deceptively systematic. If the family finds it expedient to promote and appreciate the native, this may occur. Yet, if the family finds it expedient to disgrace the native, this may also occur. Find risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler Shani, and evaluate other graha in 2, to determine which path is most instrumental for shape-shifting Rahu.

Generally Kumbha is a superior rashi for Rahu, and outcomes are favorable in all matters concerned with rule-governed networks, linkage, electro-magnetic grids, and interconnectivity.

Lineage features individual or family over-reaching [Rahu] via distributive economic systems, social-participation networks, and electro-magnetic device linkages.


Ketu in bhava-2 * the family is dispersed and disregarding in their style of showing appreciation to the native. The family's lineage wealth may dissipate over the period of one's lifetime. Second marriage is rare with Ketu-2, and if it occurs the spouse is eccentrically detached from oneself. Find Ketu's ruler SHani, and evaluate other graha in bhava-2, to determine which outcomes are likeliest.


Das commentary of Rahu/Kumbha/2:

Rahu svakshetra

"Rahu will be helpful in securing a good bank balance, but your relationship with others will not be harmonious. You will regard other people the way a predator regards its prey ."

Sahaja Bhava = 3rd navamsha = 3rd from Makara Chandra

Sahaja Bhava-3 = Meena-Antya = Clairsentience

Guru- Jupiter: Wisdom Expansion governs a svabhava of Budha.

Optimistic mental attitude.

Mental health tends to be good unless Shani aspects bhava-3, and of course depending on the condition of Guru. Visionary thinkers who may lack a tolerance for earthly reality.

The planning and administrative processes may be exceptionally optimistic, to the verge of Pollyanna thinking. operate with extremely positive expectations and a childlike belief in human goodwill. Not mentally organized unless Shani or Budha influence Bhava-3. Tends to substitute blind trust for rational planning. However, if Guru is well disposed, their trust is rewarded.

Motivated by hope for a good outcome for all, but oddly can become a liar and hypocrite. Not a 'detail person': can fabricate [Budha] information or tell an improved [Guru] version of the truth in order to enhance the big-picture outcome. Master of the"white lie". (and believes this can be done with impunity).

Expansive Guru does not ken to rational limits on thoughts or rules for processes.

If Shani casts drishti upon both Budha and Guru, the native may face serious conflict between cherished belief and material reality. Often this is resolved in a mental state of cognitive dissonance in which the native holds two contradictory claims to be equally true. Thus the normally pleasant and positive Makara native may endure mental illness when faced with bitter truths which they cannot, philosophically, accept.

Looks for the good in everyone, regardless of facts to the contrary. Extremely sympathetic. Likes religious company. Often found in very large spiritual congregations, due largely to their 2nd-Bhava global connectivity values. Likes to talk about children, charity, and their religious beliefs. Very giving people who socialize easily. Enjoys event planning, holiday parties and travel, fantasy environments. Childlike trust in siblings and neighbors. Wonderful teachers in small classrooms; fabulous sales people and promoters.

Bhava 4 -= 4th navamsha = 4th from Makara Chandra

  • Home, schooling, parents, social-material security, licensing, vehicles

  • Warrior of security
  • needs an innovative home property
  • home favors dark-red and black colors,
  • may be decorated with weaponry

Bandhu Bhava-4 = Mesha-Arya = Movement

  • Whether male or female, one takes a competitive and dominating role at home.
  • Very active, perhaps aggressive, behavior in the childhood home environment.
  • If Mangala is strong, success as a school athlete

Character of Kuja in the radix will determine the activity levels. Verbal and physical conflict, if the teachings of Professor Kuja are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) Usually, via constrictive drishti in radix.

Home is associated with metals, engines, heat production, combustion, weaponry, hunting, competitive sport, military force, explosive adolescent male energy.

Tendency for the home interior to acquire tones of black and red, and for an unusual amount of metal in the Bhava decoration, contents or construction.

Tendency to take"short-cuts " in formal education. Small family unless Kuja + Guru.

  • Dislikes public transport, requires own (fast) vehicle.
  • May keeps guns or other metal weapons in the Bhava

Unless Kuja is highly dignified, there is a natural tendency toward adversarial relationship or even overt conflict between the parents in the childhood home. Kuja in 4 or drishti to 4 = assuredly so.

Sample placements:

  • Surya or Mangala (fortunate) Ever-ready to take up politically motivated defense of the home and homeland. An inspiring comrade-in-arms.
  • Shani (unfortunate) = ethnic hatred and blaming. Parents suffer ignorance and anger. Childhood impacted by war or threats of war. Deeply insecure and emotionally reactive.

Bhava 5 = 5th navamsha = 5th from Makara Chandra

Shukra -Venus: Harmonize, Balance, Arrange

  • Romance, Creativity, Children, Performance Art, Authorship, Genius

Putra Bhava-5 = Vrishabha-Urisha Treasury

Delights in celebrity, fashion, politics, material luxury, sensual pleasures of the mouth , beautiful music, delicious foods. Charmed by children.

Charismatic self-expression through sensual indulgence of romance, food and drink. Idealistic views of procreativity and children. Not practical with child-raising routines but loves childlike creativity and joy. Enchanted with babies.

Children's behavior is mainly determined by Shukra. However, the child-karaka malefic ruler of-10 +ruler of-12 Guru is a troublemaker for Makara indriya-lagna. The situations of having children, keeping children, or raising children nearly always invoke 'cognitive dissonance' or 'denial' patterns for these natives, and their child-raising behaviors become problematic.

Makara enjoys political campaigns, speculation and gambling, literary and performance arts. Likes to be entertained and amused. If Shukra is dignified, may be a great promoter of children's arts and creativity, or of the arts in general. If Shukra is constrained, there may be no children or considerable difficult with one's own progeny, and trouble through speculation.

Bhava 6 = 6th navamsha = 6th from Makara Chandra

Budha -Mercury Mental Narrative

Imbalance: Enemies, Debt/Finance, Illness, Livestock/Pets, Servants

Ari Bhava-6 = Mithunaya-Dvamdva

Budha is a very impressionable graha and the state of Makara indriya-lagna's health depends largely on the condition of Rogesha-6 +Dharmesha-9 Budha.

As skilled rationalizers , these natives can hide their own health realities from their physicians and themselves. However, they can be articulate exponents of good health for others! Famed for their do as I say, not as I do advice :)

(See bhava-3 for their advertising, spokes-person, talkative style.)

In general, Makara natives have few enemies . They prefer to talk their way through disagreements .

  • Masterfully subverts overt conflict into covert verbal manipulation.

Lagnesha Shani considers Budha to be a friend, but Budha is also the lord of the bhava of animosity for the Makara indriya-lagna. The total outcome of Budha's influence is overall rather neutral - neither a greatly positive nor a greatly negative effective.

Budha adheres to Shani's "social order" directive, and as a result the Makara native tends to prefer to articulate a socially conservative"party line" which expresses the arguments of the social elite who promote the"law and order" social model.

bhava-6 = 5th-from-2nd is an important money Bhava, showing one's fortune from speculative investments (5th-from-2nd).

Budha is not disturbed by immoral business practices (6) e xempli gratia, usury, trafficking, racketeering, theft rings, other exploitations. Elaborate mani-money-lending agreements (6) are their specialty.

Often found doing skillful mental work on the legitimate side of an illegitimate business.

They get into polarizing catalysis during periods of the 6th lord just like everyone else, but Budha being Rogesha-6 +Dharmesha-9 they are usually rescued by their own cleverness. Many friends in low places.

Surya in bhava-6

Surya-Mithunaya * bright center of commerce and conversation * sarala yoga

Mithunaya-Surya-6 stations Himself in service ministries such as healthcare, loan-making, and military roles.

Mithunaya-Surya-6 periods generate imbalanced experiences which require conscious balancing.

For Makara indriya-lagna, Mithunaya-Surya-6 creates a helpful Viparita Raja Yoga "Sarala Yoga" which protects against excessive debt and causes most disease conditions to produce a quick return to health

In the 6th sthana, a svabhava of Mithunaya-Surya's friend Budha, kingly Surya is unable to fulfill His ideal role as the radiant absolute-center flame around which all others orbit and reflect His light.

Rather, the light is dedicated to serving others in often hidden roles, and the natural intelligence best expresses itself in problem-solving situations where matters of accusation, pollution, conflict, and illness can be resolved.

Excellent placement for service workers, physicians, nurses, healthcare technicians, bank-loan agents, druggists, military officers, social workers, and all professionals who handle conflicted situations.

Budha in bhava-6 [svabhava]

Budha-Mithunaya * communicative, scripted disagreements, analyses, arguments

Mithunaya-Budha-6 is professionally beneficial for careers in planning, writing, explaining, and communications in specialties of medicine, social work, military service, pollution and toxicity control, and conflict management professions

Budha bhukti of the Vimshottari Dasha generate experiences related to matters of bhava-6 service and matters of bhava-9 ideology and beliefs

Bhava 7 = 7th navamsha = 7th from Makara Chandra

Chandra -Moon: the Whole Mind

Balance and Rebalance:

Marriage, Partnership, Agreements, promises, negotiations, contracts,

Yuvati Bhava-7 = Karkata-Kadaga

Chandra activates Marriage, Alliance, Contractual Partnership, Union

  • inevitably fluctuates.

  • Naturally, whichever bhava is ruled by Chandra the Lord of tides and flows will fluctuate.

  • the native will experience an emotional ebb-and-flow in the primary committed partnerships, be they business or personal, throughout life.

  • The most nurturing and parental qualities in marriage are developed during periods of Chandra.


  • Marriage is framed by deeply emotional expectations of security and protection from predators.

  • One prefers a spouse with pronounced parenting and nurturing qualities. (Whether this taste is satisfied depends on the character of Chandra.)

  • In married life, Makara marries to recreate the early childhood home and to recover the feeling of protection one received (or had hoped to receive) from the physical security of the Bhava and from the parents.

  • Even the business partnerships are oriented toward stability and security, and protection from undue risk.

  • Makara females tend to marry males who similar traits to one's mother.

  • Makara males marry women who resemble the mother both physically and emotionally.


  • Makara indriya-lagna natives are often born to negotiating, brokering, contract-making mothers .

  • One's instinctive need for achieving emotional satisfaction through deal-making and forming alliances isliterally nourished by the mother's milk.

Like Budha, the Moon is enormously impressionable. Happiness and fidelity in married life will vary extremely according to the disposition of the Moon.

However, in general, unless Rahu interferes, the main feature of the marriage partner is one's deep emotional alignment with the place-based ethnic culture of one's childhood home .

  • In a masculine nativity, the wife may bear a remarkable resemblance to his mother . The primary aim and purpose of the marriage, from one's point of view = the provisioning of a safe and comfortable home and pursuit of caretaking or parenting activities. Regardless of education she is likely to prefer to live as a housewife.

  • In a feminine nativity the husband may be involved with the oceans, or with schooling, or with matters of early childhood home life and protection. Also he may engage with Bhava and vehicles, or patriotic defense.

The first marriage partner's behaviors must be culturally compatible with one's parents' lifestyle . The Maraka native marries not for romance or fortune, but for emotional security and contentment.

Usually the Makara native enters marriage for the express purpose of starting a family in order to perpetuate the conservative and conventional values of one's parental line (in particular, the mother's line). The marriage contract is based upon a mutual interest in parenting and caring for the land.

Should Chandra join with Rahu or Ketu, the partners may forego the public bans of marriage, preferring to seal their commitment with the birth of a child. If they do marry it is for the welfare of the family and not a concern for their own reputation.

Particularly when Karkata is the rashi upon the 7th navamsha , the spouse should be a land-owning and home-based person, very much attached to place, with a strong sense of custodial relationship to the local environment. Such a native whether male or female is a gardener, a parent, a patriot, a hearth-keeper, and a schoolteacher. This person may have a strong affinity for the ocean or for any type of liquid which moves in a regular cycle.

  • This Learning Pathway may require engaging with liquids. If there is also a disability of Shukra, the potential for alcoholism, drowning, flooding, or other situations signifying an over-engagement with liquids.

Contracts, agreements, legal discussions, all types of advising are approached emotionally, according to intuition and immediate feelings and needs. Family interests dominate the marital life.

Overall happiness in marriage varies a good deal, and is dictated by the health of Chandra. In general one is conservative in their marriage motive. If children are present in the marriage they are not much willing to divorce. Yet contracts are approached emotionally, so if one's feelings have been deeply hurt they may indeed go look for another spouse/parent who could do a better job.

~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 2 4 Shloka 11

"If, during birth, the Cancer or Moon's Navamsha be descending, the husband will be very passionate but quiet."

~~BPHS Ch. 80, shloka 22-25

If at woman's birth, the 7th bhava or the setting Navamsha be a rashi owned by the Moon, the husband of the woman will be love-sick and gentle.

If Surya occupies Karkata-7,

according to Behari,

"You will have a loving spouse but they may suffer from bilious diseases.

The Sun in this sign may destroy the marriage bond, but there is a great chance of becoming interested in paranormal phenomena." (randhresha-8 in 7)

"You are not content to work merely on the physical plane of existence, but are interested in establishing a link with the secret unknown.

You may be a doctor or engineer.

Your spouse will be good looking but tightfisted, impressive, good at public dealing, a good host, kind to servants and a helpful partner."

Bhava 8 = 8th navamsha = 8th from Makara Chandra

rashi-pati = genius Surya -Sun:the Soul-Self

  • Hidden Matters:
  • Joint Assets,
  • Pooled monies,
  • Crisis of Transformative Healing

Randhra Bhava-8 = Simha-Leya

A particularly difficult location for the Makara indriya-lagna native, as Surya lord of Simha is a bitter mutual enemy of lagnesha Shani.

Makara loves a lifestyle of steady, careful status acquisition, association with gracious and materially abundant folk; nice clothes; beautiful children (Shukra-5); and if there is blockage from Surya or from Surya's bhava-8 the native can self-sabotage their own by an urge too much individualistic and political style [Simha] that is hidden, secretive, manipulative, or covert.

There is a natural proclivity to associate oneself with sources of social-material power,

Joint assets of marriage are usually helpful to one's ego-membrane development. Marriage brings a degree of social recognition and some type of prestige, according to the dignity of the Sun.

Spouse contributes wealth into the marriage and spouse's assets have their own charisma. Spouse's assets enhance one's public standing and advance their career - again, according to the dignity of Surya. (8th Bhava = 11th-from-10th, spouse's contribution to joint assets is normally gainful for career.)

Native is publicly or professionally identified with"hidden politics ". Has access to confidential political information, which the native is permitted to utilize for personal and professional benefit.

Bhava 9 = 9th navamsha = 9th-from Makara-Chandra

Budha -Mercury: Mental Tasking

Principles of Philosophical understanding;

the High Temple; University;

High-Priesthood; pontiff, proselyte, sacerdotal

Guru; Professor;

Sacred Wisdom

Father-figure; Pitri, patrons, patronage;

doctrinal instruction and paradigm of belief

human perception of Divine Law

  • Temples of Sacred wisdom,

  • preachers, pontiffs, and professors,

  • father-figures, dogma and doctrine,

  • children and grandchildren

  • mountaintop celebration of Divine Light

Dharma Bhava-9 = Kanya-Parthya = Wisdom-Teachings

Although the native enjoys luxurious (Laxmi) material acquisitions (yogakaraka Shukra) and one needs a socially ordered lifestyle [Shani], the Makara native favors a religious dogma based in a Ministry of Service [Kanya].

One believes in the righteousness of one's path of service and sees oneself as the servant-leader type.

Whether the native can practice what is preached is determined by Budha, and the planetary patron of the 9th-from-Chandra. Budha is a skillful rationalizer and due to His lordship of Ari Bhava, Budha also naturally finds engagement with the worlds of exploitation and crime. Therefore, the Makara native must be very careful to avoid hypocrisy and double-speak.

  • However, if the 9th-from indicators are pure throughout the nativity, the native may develop into an inspiring preacher, professor, and spiritual guide.
  • Even when Makara follows the more typically pragmatic religious patterns in which one's own behavior is rather obviously rationalized, one may easily do good by inspiring others
  • Makara can deliver reasonable, convincing religious speeches and acts of the hands [Budha]
    • (just remember that Budha is the dharmic Dharmesha-9 -- AND -- the deceptive rogesha-6 !)

    The inspiration and consolation of Religion is easily accessible to Makara-lagna natives, but it comes in a mentalized form. It is generally easier to talk about philosophy and repeat a scripted litany rehearsing statement of convictions, than it is to"walk the talk" by acting consistently upon the tenets of one's faith.

    One enjoys conversing about religion, ritual, and priestly teachings. However, commercial Budha tends to view the entire exercise of 'profession of Faith' as being essentially an elaborate business transaction. The profit expected from this transaction include social validation and acceptance into valuable new communities (Kumbha-2).

    An easy faith arises in their lives, due partly to their chameleon ability to mimic the beliefs of others. Budha is an adolescent graha; one's faith also has an adolescent quality. Because Surya, the karaka for social ethics, rules the destructive 8th domain, the native is not much engaged in ethical inquiry. Nor is he concerned with matters of deep reflection, nor cosmic truth. Rather, religion for the Mrigadriz native is a project of thinking good thoughts, making good choices, and participating in the scripted * worth-ship * worship of their chosen tradition. They enjoy attending sermons and watching complex rituals being performed.

    Unless the teachings of Professor Budha are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) Usually, via constrictive drishti. Or if Professor Rahu occupies bhava-9, one may tend to remain within the doctrinal traditions of the childhood upbringing. One is generally uncritical of the tenets of this faith or the faiths of others, but one may enjoy discussing matters of religion and society from a journalistic point of view.

Bhava 10 = 10th navamsha = 10th-from Makara-Chandra

Tula-Vanika = Libra

Shukra -Venus: How We Love

Public Status:

Career, Profession, Public Dignity

Thulabeing a sign of balance and good design, the Makara native's public life including career, begins with social advantages. Unless Shukra is harmed, the native is graced with a pleasant public appearance. He is professionally disposed toward balanced relationships with both men and women. He is well-mannered (in public) and well-liked. Periods of Vidyapthi-5+karmesha-10 Shukra are beneficial indeed.

Career development proceeds along social lines. Native raises prestige by accepting responsibility for wining, dining, and amusing his associates - according the taste and style of Shukra. E.g. Shukra/Kumbha has an eccentric, inclusive, sometimes vulgar entertaining style; while Shukra/Meena hosts with musical and artistic elegance. Shukra/Kanya is awkward and overly mentalized in partnership, and so his career under Thulamay not well flourish.

If Shukra is strong, one's success is due to his ability to manage a wide range of interpersonal relationships, and to establish balanced and beneficial relationships between numerous third parties. This talent extends to executive work in any sector of the economy.

The foundation of Vṛścika 's public reputation = skill for gracious entertaining, which includes the style of hosting business meetings and interpersonal conversations with superiors.

If Shukra or Shukra's lord is strong, much success from social grace and intelligent relationship management. If Shukra or his Lord are not well empowered, one's taste and style are lacking.

  • Material and Social Goals

Kuja activates bhava-11 of connectivity and gainful marketplace associations. Energized pursuit of gainfulness. Kuja likes to win.

Makara-lagna natives are ambitious, even aggressive earners who tend to succeed financially through shrewd and vigorous competition in their market niche. They are less concerned with legal restrictions and more concerned with loyalty in business relationships.

If Kuja is in bad company, all the marketplace connections are vigorously pursued, and income is gained though a network of criminals. bandesha-4 + Vriddhi-pati-11 Kuja is particularly talented at earning from real estate/property development, from education, and from their mother.

General Effect on Friendship Networks

Makara indriya-lagna often chooses rather peculiar friends due to Ketu's influence on 11. There is some tendency to sexualize and secretize (Kuja-Vṛścika) one's friendships, particularly if Kuja should occupy 11. Feminine nativities may enjoy numerous male friendships, but the female is often too forceful in personality

Most likely friends are healers, shamans, managers of secret wealth and hidden knowledge, tantriki, surgeons, psychic readers, and intuitives.

Friendships exist but they are typically well-hidden, not intended for the prying eyes of the public.

In its natural state, Vyaya bhava = a meditational inner sanctuary blessed by all-good Guru. the native enjoys unfettered access to healing imagination, privacy, and prayer.

Expansive fantasy life, which normally is protected from view thus one's imaginative exploits produce little material trouble.

  • Abundant opportunity for private Affairs du Coeur with typically minimal harsh consequences; for Makara, the seventh lord representing spouse is Chandra who has no enemies.

Makara generally hold the optimistic [Guru] expectation that private dealings will stay private. Led by this positive expectation, the normal outcome = understandings which are developed"behind closed doors "are well-intentioned and generate little negativity in material, social life.

  • The agents of 'animosity toward marriage' = ruler-of-12 and graha within vyaya bhava = teachers and priests (Dhanus) who offer religious and philosophical wisdom that distracts the native from the natural sensuality and materialism of Shukra-ruled marriage relations.

Exception: papa-graha in Dhanus-12

  • Mangala in Dhanus-12 makes the sexual vitality [Mangala] somewhat unreliable and for a male in particular the sexual imagination may drive the native to unwholesome expressions of the flesh.
  • In addition the native may suffer from bursts [Kuja] of anger [Kuja] which may be troublesome in that the native is frequently unaware (12, imagination, unconscious) of their existence until a period of Mangala strikes.

Rather, their imagination is deeply empowered by beneficent Guru, and their understanding of marriage as primarily a family/parenting venue opens the philosophical door to multiple, cheerful, educational, and generous extramarital relationships which do not harm the primary marriage unless Guru is somehow harmed by a malefic.

Dhanus-born enthusiastically embrace charitable projects in foreign lands, and they welcome the opportunity to travel in the name of religion. Typically too active for serious meditation, they prefer active service to others as their most comfortable act of devotional prayer.
