woodcut "kapri-cornus" from Liber Astronomiae by Fra. Guido Bonatti, c. 1277



Surya measured from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, Makara navamsha

Makara indriya-lagna nativities tend to experience a culture of mystery and non-disclosure in all things related to their randhresha-8 Surya who is also the arch enemy * adhi-shatru of lagnesha Shani.

Professor Surya casts the center-stage roles in environments of secrecy involving occult knowledge and confidential information. Makara indriya-lagna may enter politics but their roles are predominantly undisclosed. Surya does provide a path toward understanding of the great mysteries and a grasp of the movements of the cycle of death and rebirth. However, there is always some awkwardness in matters of Surya who is expected to be brightly visible. For Makara nativities, the powerful figures who direct the actions of Surya are shrouded in disguise. One is not exactly a puppet but the controlling forces are dominatingly radiant and intense.

Professor Surya the Hub of the Wheel = mutual arch-enemy of Professor Shani the structure of the wheel. The ego-centrism and entitlements of randhresha-8 Surya may be a bitter pill for Shani-ruled Makara.

As a fierce enemy of lagnesha Shani, ego-promoting Surya causes social awkwardness and psychological frustration for the careful, cautious, law-abiding Makara native.

Cool, orderly, status-conscious, step-wise Professor Shani wants to live in a world where all existence conforms to a fixed set of laws.

  • Makara natives are born into a worldview that favors social-group conformance.

  • Shani loves fixed and reliable conditions, large coherent institutions, systematic order, and the rule of law.

  • Shani wants everyone to believe the same truth, adhere to the same principles, and behave in a predictable regulated routine fashion, at all times.

Professor Shani lectures against any kind of innovation, egocentricity, or change.

Brilliant blazing with Light kingly Professor Surya = karaka for Divine self-within, soul, and genius expressions of personal intelligence.

As randhresha-8 , the classroom environment of Professor Surya controls the hidden world of confidential information, healing secrets, and intensely transformative identity changes.

Father * Surya = pitri-karaka

Father is related to matters of bhava-8 including secrecy, hidden assets, masked relationships, sudden unexpected release of force, emergencies and disasters, confidential information, tantra

During periods of randhresha-8 Surya, the Makara native may experience a blazing hot sudden jolt to their interior rule of law, caused by an unexpected upsurge of an inner clarion call to individuation from the group .

  • law-abiding Makara usually works quite hard to suppress this outburst of independent intelligence. Periods of randhresha-8 manifest as personality disturbance, even anti-social behavior. If Surya is weak by placement, periods of Surya may generate secret or covert self-assertion behaviors.

E.g., in my files :

  • Makara female of the most staunchly conservative and pious religious display, a model "Churchwoman" of the Emerald Isle who stood election for town council position using an anti-pornography campaign. When a village police report printed in the local paper mentioned their sainted mother's name in connection with a prostitution arrest, her family was shocked to discover her hidden life. Mama had maintained a well-concealed habit of cruising the red-light bars in a nearby town. Her custom involved various short-term encounters; however, she adamantly refused money payment, accepting only the evening's liquors and the occasional bouquet of flowers in return. rogesha-6 Budha = prostitution + Dharmesha-9 Budha = public religion, Exacerbated by sexuality-karaka yuvati-pati-7 Chandra in hidden Simha-8.

  • (reported by an ex-fiancée) A midlife male Makara native; financially successful and twice-divorced; known as quiet, hardworking and reliable in his Structural Engineering firm. His need to be the center of attention only emerged at large socializing parties when he drank alcohol. He "transformed" (8) into a ego-maniacal show-off personality who stopped at nothing to get applause. Said the ex-fiancée, "now I understand why such a pleasant, reliable, professional man could have so many divorces ". Exacerbated by [uchcha] amza Surya vs [uchcha] amza Shani

Look to Surya's rashi-bhava to discover more about the characteristics of the ego-shock

the classroom environment of Professor Surya's enemy Shani features an intense dislike of egocentricity (kings, politics, theatre, genius).

The classroom environment of Professor Shani hates change.

randhresha-8 Surya de-"lights " in change.

randhresha-8 Surya enforces egocentric, individualistic, autocratic change.


Periods of the classroom environment of Professor Surya = sudden, forced changes in life. bhava-8 gives a sudden, forced turning of the cycle of birth and death.

the native will be introduced to shocking, brilliant, and perhaps overwhelmingly powerful, secret information. Moral integrity and faith in the power of divine healing will allow the native to handle life-and-death responsibilities with noble strength. Surya must be strong by rashi.

The classroom environment of Professor Surya will also rule one Bhava vis-à-vis Chandra.

Assess the characteristics of Surya's Bhava, from Chandra lagna, for a fuller appreciation of Surya bhukti . Events should be predicted largely from Chandra lagna after the age of 50.


Because Professor Surya is a karaka for professional career visibility and public recognition, and Ravi = randhresha-8 for Makara indriya-lagna, the Makara native may be somewhat disposed toward to accept public roles and professional leadership responsibilities within secret, dangerous, or mysterious areas (8) and emergencies or catastrophic events (8) .

Example environments include hospital emergency room, confidential banking, money laundering, state secrets, espionage, midwifery, surgery, healing, yoga-tantra, magic, shamanism, revolution, sudden, violent change; explosives, and eruptions of previously hidden force.

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

from: ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 90

"For Capricorn (Makar) Ascendant,

  • Sun rules eighth Bhava.

the natives of this Ascendant

  • should avoid wearing Ruby as far as possible
  • because not only is Sun lord of the 8th a very inauspicious Bhava
  • but also the Sun is a bitter enemy of Saturn, the lord of Capricorn Ascendant.
If however
  • the Sun is in his own sign in 8th,
  • Ruby may be worn in the major period of Sun.
  • That will give long life to the native
  • and he might benefit from an inheritance.
Ruby should not be worn
  • If the major period is not likely to be operative during the life time of the native ."

Marriage, Peer Relationship, Contracts, Advising

Professor Chandra


  • measured from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Chandra yuvati-pati rules bhava-7, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of contracts, agreements, trusts, deals, bargains, and negotiations, often seen in match-making and consulting-advising roles

In later adulthood the relationship with the partners especially marital alliance will be powerfully influenced by the tidal emotions of acceptance, rejection, belongingness, and prodigal return that were once practiced with Mother.

The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra regulates contracts, agreements, alliances, and peer-to-peer relationships .

Chandra's condition will determine the quality of counseling and advising relationships in the native 's personal and professional life.

The closest advisors will be women, beginning with mother and grandmother. After marriage, a man will find his wife to be his most influential advisor in all matters. For both genders, presuming Chandra is well-supported, many alliances led by women. For a woman, her own mother remains her closest counsel. Excellent for women in legal and diplomatic practice (presuming Chandra is well disposed).

Makara indriya-lagna Periods of Chandra = intensification of the physical and emotional self-image as the container of value in promise-making behaviors, contractual activities, negotiation of partnerships personal and professional, and deep emotional consultation between the human and divine aspects of the Self.

Chandra in classroom-1 = Chandra-Makara-Draco = the powerful personality-shaping influence of the Mother. Chandra-1 yuvati-pati indicates a primary, predominant, emotionally binding, identity-defining relationship with the mother.

Chandra in classroom-12 = Chandra-Dhanus may experience withdrawal of the spouse into private reverie, due to 7th-from-Chandra-12 = bhava-6 animosity and one's own emotional nature aligned with bhava-12 enemies of the marriage (6th from 7th = 12th).

  • Liberia-Pres 1938- Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had a violently abusive and disrespectful first marriage. Following her divorce, her energy returned, and she achieved notable roles in global economics capped by winning and maintaining a long-lasting Presidency of her homeland Liberia (Makara social governance).

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva * KSY + Chandra-yuti-Shani + Surya * Father Escriva spoke the consecrated vows of celibacy

Sacred Jewels

Mukta = moti = pure natural Pearl

for Makara indriya-lagna

  • Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 94

"For the Capricorn Ascendant

Persons with this Ascendant

  • should avoid wearing a Pearl.


  • pearl can be worn if necessary, in the major period of Moon,

  • [only] if Moon is in Cancer, her own sign."


bandesha-4 + Vriddhi-pati-11

  • from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Slow, careful, motion-averse Lagnesha Shani sees the aggressively moving, competitive Mangala as a hostile, warlike enemy.

  • Shani is Old; Kuja is New.

  • Shani obstructs; Kuja invades.

  • Shani resists change; Kuja forces movement.

Vital and competitive Kuja controls

  • bhava-4 = home-and-country

  • bhava-11 = marketplace gains and large assemblies.

Periods of Mangala =

  • physical vigor and dominating behaviors in parenting and school-teaching, (4)

  • fierce patriotism, (4)

  • surge of passionate defensiveness in protection of the ethno-cultural folkways , (4)

  • a return to school or obtainment of new passport, new residency permit, deeds of title, license, diploma, various cultural legitimations (4)

  • gain of new friends, new networks, new, (11)

  • raising of funds for new development,

  • community activism.

Mars will also rule two Bhava vis-à-vis Chandra . Assess the two Bhava from Chandra for a fuller characterization of the expected events in the narrative that flows from one's core expectations and beliefs during Mangala bhukti of the Vimshottari Dasha. Events should be predicted largely from Chandra lagna after the age of 50.

Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses houses

Badhesha = Vriddhi-pati-11 Mangala

Cardinal * chara lagna typically has some trouble from the elder sibling, from friendly association, from the marketplace, from the nature or method of setting goals, from achievements and profits.

If the teachings of Professor Shani when He occupies Vṛścika or Mangala-Ketu are 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.

It is reasonable to expect considerable repeating effort with the network of friends and associates during periods of Mangala. the native may suffer isolation or the identity is oppressed by sudden upheavals in the network or selfish actions of a mentoring friend.

Periods of Mangala may bring forward an agent in the figure of a friend, mentor, elder sibling, or marketplace associate, who (often inadvertently) causes harm to the native via aggressive or selfishly competitive behavior, causing destructions of the network, and leading to adversarial behaviors within the network.

Badhaka agents must be handled with compassion, in the knowledge that this harm-causing agent is merely a projection of one's own unrealized instincts to behave competitively when expanding one's associations with new people and new ideas.

Difficult graha in occupation of labha bhava or Mangala drishti upon bhava-11 may exacerbate the badhaka agency.

Sacred Jewels for Mangala:

Red Coral = munga

  • the native will acquire land, property and conveyances

  • will get domestic harmony,

  • happiness from mother

  • and gains of wealth ."


rogesha-6 + Dharmesha-9

  • from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Lagnesha Shani sees rogesha-6 + Dharmesha-9 Budha as a close friend. . Budha views Shani as a neutral party.

Conversational and sexual Budha loves to talk, think, argue (6) and preach (9).

Busy Budha activates 6-9 = usually a two-sided outcome for the Makara indriya-lagna nativity, producing both disagreements (6) and fortune of broad worldview and patronage (9)

On the one hand ... on the other hand

Generally Budha gives stronger results for His mulatrikona Kanya-9. However Professor Budha is also the natural ruler of disagreeable bhava-6.

Periods of ambidextrous Budha tend to bring both types of results, in surprising combinations. For example in some nativities, one may experience a divorce (6) which propels the native to returning to university for higher studies (9). Budha never produces entirely one type of outcome - always two-sided.

as planetary patron of bhava-6, Budha brings social conflict, exploitation, personal imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, mental resistance to marriage fidelity and a quick-witted avoidance of the terms of agreement.

Budha also increases the frequency interaction with conflict-management agents and activities, such as clinical medicine, criminal litigation, military strategy, and police reports.

On the plus side, when one gets into legal trouble, one is nearly always able to talk one's way out of the dilemma.

  • Budha is gifted in the art of the sincere apology.

  • But the lord Kumara is also gifted in the role of the repeat offender.

In particular, Budha can signify medical and mental issues with substance addiction and the psycho-physical consequences of sex [Budha] addictions. (Addiction = = a behavior which becomes so compulsory that it interferes with other necessary functions in work and family life.)

as ruler of bhava-9, Budha brings a mental engagement with religious principles and practices, affinity for sacred space, and personal priesthood.

Because Kanya the mūlatrikoṇa rashi = identical to Makara's dharmasthana., Budha = usually religiously minded, although in a predictably orthodox fashion which is more oriented to public piety and less to private prayer.

Budha can connect the Makara native to one's society through religious ceremony and collective prayer.

University professorship, rank and title in religious organizations, and performance of acts of public piety.

When Budha occupies the Makara indriya-lagna = a very public worshipper, whose specific religious affiliations are essential to the identity.

If Budha is well-disposed,

  • the native has knowledge of the sacred scriptures of one's own religious tradition.

If Budha occupies a dualistic rashi such as Mithuna or Meena,

  • one may grasp the meanings offered by the sacred writings of traditions outside one's own, as well.

If Budha is prominently placed, such as in lagna or with Chandra,

  • one's personality and behavior may appear contradictory or at least enigmatic. That is because two-sided Budha, the lord of self-narrative communications, is thus obliged to express both the profoundly religious mentality of bhava-9 and also the conflicted, agreement-dissolving electro-magnetic initiating thoughts of bhava-6.

Hypocrisy and contradiction may become the external hallmarks of Budha in the Jyotisha kundali.

However, rather amusingly, Lord Kumara is not disturbed by the apparent logical inconsistencies of seemingly incommensurable principled beliefs (9) and unprincipled actions (6).

Budha is a master of superficial inquiry, simplified answers, trite responses, slogans and jokes. The native draws from a repertoire of rationalizations that deflect criticism and prevent further inquiry.

Unless Budha is strengthened by a parivartamsha yoga, sober drishti of lagnesha-1 Shani, or yuti more grounded, accountable graha, Kumara in Makara may become an alcoholic priest, a sex-addicted preacher, a drug-dealing physician, or a pious, joking hypocrite .

One may also become a dedicated religious missionary with a tremendous administrative [Budha] capability, who nonetheless participates in exploiting (6) the very folk one is trying to redeem with wise sermons and sacred tomes (9).

Budha is a rationalizer .

Lord Kumara will usually develop a complex logical explanation supporting the underlying coherence of th behavior - including that most time-honored rationalization: simple denial . Yet, to outsiders, Makara lifestyle choices may seem to express a strong case of"cognitive dissonance".

Periods of Budha = much contact with the service worker class or 'victim class'. the native or those whom one serves will be engaged in conflict and exploitation behaviors. Also, in equal measure, periods of Budha bring contact with religious teachers, scholars, and other wisdom-providers. Problems may not be solved during Budha bhukti but problems will be much better defined and articulated. Analysis and planning are favored.

Budha will also rule two bhava vis-à-vis Chandra. Assess the two bhava from Chandra for a fuller appreciation of Budha bhukti. Events should be predicted largely from Chandra lagna after the age of 50.

Budha =rogesha-6 + Dharmesha-9 = challenges to trust in peer relationships (6). However, there is compensation from increased philosophical wisdom (9) and more attention to religious practice (9).

For the Makara indriya-lagna, a well-placed Budha can be greatly helpful in the development of logical argumentation which is required in critical scholarship of religious texts.

Argumentative Budha in the rogesha-6 + Dharmesha-9 role may produce some sort of an orthodox pandita.

Budha is an especially difficult graha for Makara nativities in which Budha = rogesha-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy). Most growth-challenging combinations include:

  1. Makara radix lagna + Makara Chandra

  2. Makara radix lagna + Mesha Chandra

  3. Makara Chandra + Mesha indriya-lagna

Guru = ruler-of-3+ ruler-of-12

  • from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Lagnesha Shani = mutually neutral toward Guru.

Wise and expansive vikrama-pati+ ruler-of-12 Guru = in charge of communications and spiritual retreat

12 = 6th from 7th = Enemies of the marriage alliance. Guru-type inimical-to-alliance agency may include (ironically) religious beliefs, rituals, and philosophical teachers; one's own father; professors, preachers, priests, and spiritual guides.

The day-to-day thought process (3) may become inadvertently inflated by fantasy (12)

in the extreme when Guru suffers occupancy in His nīcha, this fantasy can produce an unrealistically optimistic Pollyanna attitude especially in regard to distant lands (12) and media-messaging (3).

Handwriting (3) = large size [Guru].

Charitable but often ineffective

the native is very much inclined toward acts of charity (Guru, 12) Yet, the discursive process (3) required to plan and execute useful charitable actions is often lacking essential details, due in part to disability of Budha (above).

Therefore, the native may engage in spontaneous acts of sympathetic charity with a tendency toward "rescue fantasy" (12) but in general on a material the actions are less than effective.


QUOTATION Behari commentary * Guru-Kumbha-2 * QUOTATION

"Comfort in regard to money matters, but lack of affluence, nor a happy family life.

There will be a tone of gravity and seriousness, but it will lack conviction in view of your poor financial position."

Guru Mahadasha

Vimshottari Dasha of Brihaspati

Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Makara radical nativity is generally a period of great retreat and great planning and communication.

Guru's mūlatrikoṇa being Dhanus, overall effects of sahaja-bhava-3 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of dhsls-sthana-12.

Because of the role played by Professor Guru for the Makara nativity, and the natural neutrality of Guru toward lagnesha Shani it is a common experience that many occasions for meditative retreat or residing in a research enclosure would accompany a great abundance of publications or instructional delivery during this 16-year mahadasha. It is a highly comfortable period for academics who like to combine teaching and research, or publications with research. One may do more traveling than usual, since bhava-3 generates a steady stream of itineraries and bhava-12 brings one to distant lands.

Professor Guru is a traveller.

  • bhratru-pati-3 and ruler-of-12 = Excellent period for philosophical and scholarly extended sojourn in distant lands (12) and craft-learning (3) such as writing, painting, drawing, sculpting, sewing, other manual skills.

  • Splendid opportunity for translation (3) of sacred [Guru] texts (3) if Budha is strong.

  • Short-term travel (3) and longer-term travel that is actually foreign residence (12).

  • Sincere attempts to succeed in commercial business and be cooperative in the office - but the old problem of a Guru-ruled shaja bhava which causes one to chat rather theologically at times when mundane talk is expected. This social gaff may need constant attention,

  • Brihaspati will also rule two Bhava vis-à-vis Chandra. Assess these two Bhava from Chandra for a fuller predictive appreciation of Guru bhukti.

    Events should be predicted primarily from Chandra lagna after the age of 50.

Guru ratna = pushkaraja (yellow sapphire) for Makara indriya-lagna

  • Professional Responsibilities

Shukra yogakaraka vidya-pati-5 (politics) + karmesha-10 (governance) = natural capability to lead and govern , either by royal entitlement (5) or by charismatic charm that facilitates successful democratic election.

The Makara native is empowered, according to the strength of Shukra, to make decisions which provide social order and lawfulness , with special emphasis upon matters of :

alliances, relationships, contracts, agreements, bargains, deals, matches, pairs, diplomacy, wealth, acquisitions, hoarding, food and drink, cattle, jewels, fields and forests, heritage and history , stories and songs, face and voice, recorded knowledge

Generally, the leadership style features partnership qualities of constant negotiation, preference for harmony and graciousness in the interactive behaviors, and appreciation of the value of Other

Lagnesha Shani = best friends with [Yogakaraka] Shukra.

Shukra gives excellent results in regard to matters of children, politics, speculative ventures, romance, professional respect, leadership roles, and public duties.

The Makara personality typically exudes a practical intelligence about cintamani * mani * money (Vrishabha = 5, intelligence ) and a characteristic common sense about the relationship between Time [Shani] and cintamani * mani * money [Shukra].

Makara natives also as a general rules enjoy pleasant relationships, personal and professional, with Feminine Nativities.

Affiliation [Shukra] with prestige groups, labels, symbols, and status-markers especially marked by conspicuous consumption (location of the home, style of dress, professional title etc.) bring pleasure [Shukra] to the native .

For masculine nativities re: feminine-figures

Sweet-seeking Shukra has a special importance for husbandly nativities, because Shukra indicates the feminine partners = both personal and professional.

  • The Makara masculine nativity may enjoy the company of women who exemplify qualities of 5 and 10. The wife of a Makara male will generally experience her gracious presence as contributing to one's material enjoyment of children. As a rule (if other graha do not interfere) the marriage union will enhance a man's public reputation and dignity. Likely the wife may have a notable career and some measure of theatrical or political talent.

Feminine Nativities re: Feminine Figures

  • Makara ladies tend to seek the association of feminine-figures who have respectable social status and material assets. In other words, the Makara Feminine Nativity generally prefers the company of other women who dress in an elite style (5-10), have some variety of social, political, or educational empowerment (5) and who wield some measure of social leadership authority (10) . Often the Feminine Nativities seeks company of those who lawfully [Makara] aspire to these empowerments, and who are perceived as actively climbing toward higher levels of social respect.

Shani will also rule two Bhava vis-à-vis Chandra. Assess the two Bhava from Chandra for a fuller appreciation of Shani bhukti. Events should be predicted largely from Chandra lagna after the age of 50.

Shani also controls the public facade of the second marriage.

  • from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Rahu = co-lord of bhava-2 Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) may become a beneficial gem for matters of financial well-being acquisition, stock-piling and hoarding, learnings in history and languages, second marriage, and expressions of voice and face such as song and appearance in story-telling imagery such as films.

However, Rahu in the rashi of maraka Chandra = dangerous for Kumbha indriya-lagna . Even for The treasury -and-knowledge target, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-2 and its occupants are highly benevolent

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 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. )


  • from Makara indriya-lagna, Makara Chandra, and Makara-Draco navamsha

Ketu is co-lord of bhava-10 Vṛścika, Therefore, Ketu-ratna may be a beneficial gem for matters of professional recognition and leadership responsibility -- but only if the lord of bhava-10 and its occupants are auspicious.

Ketu's effects for Makara indriya-lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti.

Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Ketu's Bhava; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
