Surya = rogesha-6 = "The Problematizer"

Inimical view of father, king, and politics

Disagrees with male (Ravi) privilege, claims of divine right, pretenders to royal charisma

May feel victimized by those who claim to be brilliant, special, central to the scene, or above statutory law

Great pride in one's problematizing skills; ability to deal with chronic conflict; master-slave relationships; animals; ministries of service, helping professions.

From Meena indriya-lagna, Professor Ravi controls the most evil dushthamsha, bhava-6.

Naturally, most of the significations of Professor Ravi - especially father and father-figures - become problematic for Meena natives during their lives.

rogesha-6 Surya = karaka for independent self, soul (the channel of divine intelligence), father, pride, creativity, and Light.

In general, Meena indriya-lagna natives must be inordinately cautious of their own independent, egoistic instincts , since self-assertion tends quickly toward conflict.

A cosmic, compassionate [Guru] merging and divinely tolerant worldview, along with focused attention to the clairsentient pathways and their subtle but eternal signal that provide accurate spiritual guidance, will help to prevent outbursts of moral indignation.

Father * Surya = pitri-karaka

Sparkling Surya activates rogasthana-6, which Generally, implies combative or adversarial circumstances for the father.

The conflicted circumstances may be embraced within the victim narrative [story of being eaten] , or these exact same conditions may be framed as a ministry of service.

Father is related to matters of bhava-6 including physical medicine, military service, social work, and countless ministries of service to the poor, the victims, the betrayed, the accused, the toxic, the polluted, the exploited, the addicted, and the enslaved. If the ministry to others has not yet developed, the father may be distinguished by a chronic illness, criminal involvement, or financial insufficiency which leads him into unbalanced or unfair situations.

  • The father of POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington * was ill for most of young George's boyhood. Dad died when George was eleven years old. His father left George a considerable inheritance built from the labor of slaves (6).

The father's pride

  • The father was a king [Simha] in a parallel life but he has been born into the service class (6) in the current life.

  • The father will be restless and discontent with his social position and may try to recover his kingly memories by selfish actions.

  • The father perceives himself as a glorious [Simha] person and only rarely does he realize that his own selfish behavior is the source of his bondage to service work.

Father as exploiter, abuser, or criminal

The Meena woman

  • The Meena woman (particularly Chandra-Meena) may feel outraged by the criminal (or nearly so) actions of the most father-figures in her life. It may be her high challenge to see these men, who are supposed to act like Kings (pitrikaraka Surya) as disappointingly mere humans and frankly of the lowest human genre (6).

  • All partnerships with father-figures are colored by a fundamental disappointment in the moral weakness of men as a class.

  • Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.


Because Professor Surya is a karaka for career and public recognition, and Ravi = rogesha-6 for Meena indriya-lagna, the Meena native is somewhat disposed toward to accept public roles and professional leadership responsibilities within human service ministries (6) such as clinical health care, management of jails and police stations, helping professions, military and police professions, ministries of service to the exploited classes. Practice of medicine and medical education are particularly fortunate vocations for the Meena native.

Ravi is an especially difficult graha for Meena nativities in which Surya = rogesha-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy):

  • Meena radix lagna + Meena Chandra

Sacred Jewels for Surya - Manika (pure Ruby)

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

"For the Pisces [Meena] Ascendant

  • Sun rules the 6th, an inauspicious house.

  • the natives of this Ascendant should avoid Ruby.

  • However, if Sun is in the 6th house in his own sign , a Ruby can be worn in the major period of Sun.

This will prove useful as Sun is a friend of Jupiter the lord of the Pisces Ascendant.

  • Wearing of this gem stone, as advised above will ensure freedom from enemy troubles, debts and diseases."


Professor Chandra activates vidya-bhava-5

See also:

candescent Chandra activates bhava-5, granting a particularly intuitive understanding and ability for matters of celebrity entertainments, creative, political, or dramatic roles, children, gaming intelligence, and speculative finance.

For Matsya lagna, the fluctuating and impressionable Professor Chandra activates Karkata sthana-5 . The crown jewels of the Meena nativity are

  • vidya-pati Chandra conferring a uniquely intelligent speculative intuition

  • dharma-pati Mangala conferring a dynamic, innovative, often penetrating philosophical wisdom.

For Meena nativities, holding the roles of the matri-karaka Chandra such as mother, grandmother, schoolteachers and other roles of protective guardianship, is a beneficial experience.

Also pursuing Kuja's bhratri-karaka roles and interacting with those who are playing the roles of Mangala such as brothers, younger male colleagues, military officers, athletes, and explorers can generally beneficial to the Meena native (depending of course on the condition of Angarika).

Professor Chandra activates a svabhava of Surya, which brings more heat, brilliance, self-centeredness, and personal glamour into Chandra's naturally habitual, rhythmic sheltering and protective behaviors.

Chandra activates a comfortable 5/9 angle to svabhava-Karkata.

Meena indriya-lagna has a psycho-emotional need to obtain security and protection via emotional engagement with

  • breeding children

  • authoring poetic and creative literature

  • attracting attention in the arts of politics and romance

  • creating and performing in the dramatic arts

  • gambling, gaming, and financial speculation

Chandra =vidya-pati-5 = emotionally most satisfied in creative social roles that express individual intelligence and self-determination, and allow the native to take speculative risks.

  • E.g., creative parenting, literary author, speculative investor, independent educator, and almost any political or entertainment role including "genius " innovative teaching styles. (This is not a conventional by the book teacher but rather a teaching wizard, who draws from a wellspring of intuitive creativity when parenting and teaching.)

Professor Chandra's radix and navamsha rashi and any drishti to Chandra will show the native 's specific style of pursuing security and emotional fulfillment.

Typically Meena natives love children , and expect to profit by raising them. Whether they choose reproductive fertility or not depends on conditions of dharma bhava and putra bhava. They are prone toward lifelong self-improvement and often involved in the consciousness industry. Will generally achieve some degree of celebrity (or notoriety!).

When the highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra controls the domain of children and speculation, much depends on Chandra's lord and companions. Emotional feeling and empathy for children is strong, but unfocused.

If bandesha-4 Budha is organized, the native can stabilize the home routines. Otherwise the emphasis on creativity, content over form, can be under-structured. Children are creative and intuitive and probably moody, having bee emotionally indulged.

Sacred Jewels for Chandra * Mukta * moti = pure natural Pearl

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

"For the Pisces Ascendant,

Moon rules the 5th house, a very auspicious house.

  • By wearing a Pearl the native will be blessed with children, will get name and fame, his fortune will be accelerated.

  • According to Bhavath Bhavam principle, 5th being 9th to 9th is also treated- as a house of Bhagya (fortune).

  • If Moon is in his own sign in the 5th, Pearl can be worn always with beneficial results.

  • The good effects will be more pronounced in the Major period of the Moon.

If Moon is afflicted or ill-disposed, wearing of Pearl is a 'must."

Professor Kuja

dhanapati-2+ Dharmesha-9

The roles of the Mangala-karaka such as brothers, younger male colleagues, military officers, athletes, and explorers are also supportive in the Meena nativity.

Capital wealth is governed by bhava 2, 5, 9, and 11. Vital and competitive dhanapati-2+Dharmesha-9 Kuja is a mani-money-maker, as He controls two important bhava of treasury.

For Matsya Lagna, presuming that Mangala is fairly well disposed, periods of dhanapati-2+Dharmesha-9 Mangala are capable of generating capital wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via the higher philosophical education and world travel.

Professor Mangala brings a knowledgeable but often adversarial family culture. the native is raised with religious people who are also competitive, inventive [Mesha] and financially privileged. Given the influence of Dharmesha-9 , Kuja's wealth in a Meena nativity is most likely to occur in the form of temple knowledge (humanistic philosophy and ceremonial skills) rather than money or material storage value per se, Yet, there is undoubtedly some level of financial well-beingpresent in the lineage. (The amount depends on occupants of bhava-2).

Family-lineage values-fulfillment are instilled within a culture of competitive ambition. (The degree and direction of ambition depends on Kuja's rashi and drishti to Mangala.) Religion and philosophical wisdom are also infused with a drive toward psychological inquiry [Vṛścika] that pushes the native toward an individual [Kuja] truth.

the core values (2) set toward a dislike of convention and herd behaviors [Kuja], the Meena natives tends away from group rituals, and toward more personalized religious knowledge (9).

Check Kuja, Shani, and Chandra for total wealth picture. Guru and Surya will provide more information on priestly duties and ethical comprehension.

Sacred Jewels * munga

  • Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 98

"For the Pisces Ascendant

Mars rules the 2nd, the house of fwealth and 9th the house of Bhagya (fortune).

  • Mars is, therefore, a very auspicious planet for this Ascendant and wearing of Coral will bring great success in the life of the native .

  • Red Coral is a 'must' for them if Mars is ill disposed or afflicted in any way in the birth chart.

Wearing of Red Coral with Yellow Sapphire will prove exceedingly beneficial."

Budha bandesha-4 + yuvati-pati-7

Kendra lord bandesha-4 +yuvati-pati-7 Budha is a stabilizing influence on the personality integrity. For Matsya folk, Budha controls two of the most basic social relationships: parents (4) and spouse (7).

Meena nativities talk (or sing or write) almost continuously at home, with their parents, and with their partners. Conversational and sexual, Budha likes to form narrative-driven relationships of shared stories and explanations. The parents are Typically, articulate and talkative.

Because Budha (like Chandra) is exceptionally impressionable, much depends on Budha's lord in radix and navamsha.

For example, Matsya nativity with

  • Budha-Makara ruled by the vriddhi-pati-11 +ruler-of-12 Shani may have a more quiet and conservative early childhood home and marriage.

  • Budha-Vrishabha ruled by the vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 Shukra may have a luxury-loving spouse and parents; However, the pursuit of that luxury may become problematic.

  • Budha-Simha ruled by the rogesha-6 Surya will naturally have some struggles regarding personal sovereignty, both in the early childhood home and the marriage. If Surya is well-disposed, these conflicts can be managed.

  • If Budha occupies a friendly rashi (of Shani, of Shukra, of Budha) marriage will generally flourish at a level of mentalized activity. The partner's profession is partly indicated by lord of 10th-from-7th

  • Therefore, the partner's role in professional life is not much different from the partner's behavior in the marriage: it is mercurial, quick, mentalized, adolescent, flexible, rationalized, conversational, articulate, usually literate, and favors short-term, immediate results (not a philosopher). The partner has often a more teenage body appearance,

Meena-born may enjoy many highly communicative relationships, both personal and professional (professional advising = 7th = 10th-from-10th). If Budha is well disposed, the native is a natural counselor and adviser, in any setting.

The spouse (7) tends to be articulate and gestural, with a gift for friendly chat. (The spouse's specific style of speech articulation, quality of voice, face and hair etc. are best measured via 2nd-from-7th and 8th-from Chandra.)

bandesha-4 +yuvati-pati-7 Budha is a powerful Schooling agent. Budha bhukti often foster an interest in educational undertakings, and often mark a significant educational accomplishment such as passing an important examination, or earning a diploma.

Budha bhukti may manifest accomplishment in communication and argumentation . E.g., mastering a new business communications medium such as marketing, sales, or advertising [Budha]; conducting an important meeting; venturing into a contract negotiation (7) or legal agreement (7).

(comfortable and pleasing results presume that Budha is healthy and no resistance in bhava-4 or bhava-7).

Badhaka -sthana = harming-houses For the Meena nativity, yuvati-pati-7 Budha = badhesha

Budha finds His [nīcha] amza debilitation in Meena rashi

Budha suffers kendra-adhipati -dosha relative to the Meena indriya-lagna

Avoid emeralds unless there is an exceptionally clear argument [Budha] for wearing the clear green panna.

For example there could be a case of Budha-Meena indriya-lagna for a realty attorney who could utilize the unique benefits of bandesha-4 /yuvati-pati-7 in lagna.

Also I once saw the nativity of a special-education teacher who made splendid use of Budha bandesha-4 /yuvati-pati-7 in lagna to serve severely verbally disabled students by teaching them to draw semiotically interpretable pictures. She was a genius anyway and emerald in her case during her Budha mahadasha brought out her articulatory, explanatory genius even more.

So, there are important exceptions. But in general, Budha is problematic for Meena indriya-lagna and should be avoided.

Sacred Jewels

Emerald (panna) for Meena indriya-lagna

QUOTATION Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 103

"Mercury rules the 4th and 7th houses.

Here also on account of ownership of two Kendras Mercury suffers from Kendra-adhipati dosha.

  • Still if Mercury is in his own sign in the 4th or 7th or be in the 2nd, 5th, 9th, 10th or 11th houses, emerald can be worn with profit in the major and sub-periods of Mercury.

  • In this connection it should be kept in mind that natives of this ascendant who are apprehending death on account of old age or some illness, should never wear Emerald as Mercury's ownership of the 7th house makes him a very strong death inflicting planet.

If they take the risk of doing so they must wear a Blue Sapphire along with Emerald."

Professor Guru

kalpapathi lagnesha-1 + karmesha karmesha-10

Guru governs the Career

  • Public Visibility
  • Social Reputation and Respect
  • Elite Positions
  • Leadership Roles
  • Governance Duties
  • Professional Responsibilities

Wise and expansive lagnesha-1 + karmesha-10 Guru is a superb career graha.

Guru for Meena nativities = similar to the role Budha plays for Kanya nativities.

Meena-born benefit from a generous and expansive approach to leadership responsibilities. In general, presuming that Guru is a healthy graha, the native enjoys fairly high levels of social recognition and a favorable public reputation. the native is known as a teacher and in some sense as a priest, one's inclusive social viewpoint encourages public trust.

Much depends on the dignity of Professor Guru and the timing of Guru Mahadasha. Yet, a benefic controlling two key kendra cannot easily go wrong. Guru bhukti However, Challenging for other matters = always helpful for career.

Guru is specifically unhelpful for generating cintamani * mani * money , because karmesha-10 = ruler-of-12 th-from-11th AND lagnesha-1 = ruler-of-12 th-from- 2nd. Guru bhukti Typically, Raise the prestige and lower the bank accounts.

In a wifely nativity, Guru = first husband

Meena indriya-lagna or Meena-Chandra indicates characteristics of 1 and 10 in the first husband.

This agent tends to have qualities of generosity and inclusiveness; well-developed social identity (1) an engaging personal appearance (2) and high vitality; also a prominent social position (10) with expanded reputation and capability to accept social leadership roles (10).

Vimshottari Dasha of Brihaspati

Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Meena radical nativity is generally a period of great physical vitality and great professional recognition in Guru-related fields such as humanistic education, philosophy. and global travel.

Guru's mūlatrikoṇa being Dhanus, overall effects of karmabhava-10 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of kalpa-sthana-1.

Because Brihaspati is lagnesha for the Meena nativity, it is a common experience that a steady stream of executive and leadership roles would accompany a great physical movement activities during this 16-year mahadasha. It is generally a high-visibility period with considerable social responsibility.

Sacred Jewels

yellow sapphire = pushkaraka-raja-ratna = "pukhraj" for Meena indriya-lagna.

  • Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 109:

"For the Pisces Ascendant Jupiter will be lord of the Ascendant and the 10th house.

He is, therefore, an auspicious planet for this Ascendant.

  • the native s of this Ascendant can fulfill all their desires by wearing a yellow sapphire .

  • If Jupiter is in his own sign in the Ascendant or the 10th house this disposition will give rise to Hamsa Yoga and the Yellow Sapphire will help to enhance the beneficial effects of the yoga.

  • The results will be felt more pronouncedly in the major period of Jupiter.

Wearing of a Yellow Sapphire with Red Coral, the gem stone of Mars, the lord of the 9th (house of Bhagya), will be an ideal combination for achieving success."


vikrama-pati+ randhresha-8

Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu indicates possessiveness , acquisitive tendencies, sensual pleasures, satisfaction, treasures-and-pleasures, luxuries (Laxmi) and all types of sweets.

as ruler of 3 and 8 for Meena indriya-lagna, Shukra is especially possessive of one's topical message and the mental signaling narrative (3) and the secret assets of partnership, confidential information, occult knowledge, and other hidden mysteries (8).

The Meena native finds the content of 3 * narratives, stories, lore * and 8 * occult knowledge, hidden truths * worth collecting and will dedicate a lifetime to acquisition and storage of these values.

randhresha-8 +bhratru-pati-3 Shukra = less benevolent for the Meena indriya-lagna. Harmonious relationships are hard to come by.

Shukra = particularly uncomfortable for men, because Shukra describes their feminine partners.

  • The Meena-lagna male may attract a feminine partner who is handicapped by her suspicious mind, particularly in regard to her husband's hidden monies or inheritance, and issues of marital fidelity.

As the ruler of an upachaya bhava and a dushthamsha, sweet and sensual vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 Shukra is not such a beneficial graha for Matsya lagna.

In fact, Professor Shukra's teachings are nearly as problematic for Meena indriya-lagna as is Mangala for Kanya lagna. The difference is: that Mangala for Kanya is focused and direct like the huntsman when in sexual overdrive, and thus the Kanya native can get into situations requiring polarizing catalysis through Mangala's instinctive pursuit of its quarry.

For the Meena native, Shukra playing the same role as vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 produces a receptive rather than pro-active behavior in the mating dance, and as a natural pleasure-giver subhagraha Shukra tends to leave all involved with a sweet taste, after the sexual partnering is completed.

The Problem of Luxury for Meena indriya-lagna

Nevertheless Shukra's involvement with both deep secrecy (8) and superficial daily mentality (3) gives Meena natives a peculiar affection for secret relationships that happen in the context of quite mundane team work. The environment for such liaisons is often the administrative work of commercial business, and in particular in the context of committees, meetings, 'media' production, and publication of announcements.

In the modern world, Shukra for Meena indriya-lagna becomes a karaka for the luxury of the of fice marriage wherein the native spends a good deal of time happily paired with a team-mate. The 'office marriage' is Typically, a luxurious ornament to one's life and it does not threaten meaningful relations with one's own spouse (7). However, like all sources of pleasure it is very easy to become attached to the experience : )

The pleasure-ruled work-team relationships do not always become sexual under Shukra's lordship (as they nearly always do for Kanya under lordship of fleshly Kuja). However, if yuvati-pati-7 Budha is weak and vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 Shukra is strong, Meena's affections may over time come to lie more strongly with the more harmonious partnerships established with an office mate, fellow salesperson, member of the media production team, etc.

The main indicator of learning-challenge in marriage = the standard problem for the Meena Masculine nativity for which = Shukra is a secretive, transformative, initiating ruler of 8-and-8th-from-8..

This situation makes Meena marriages rather permanently prone toward production of polarizing catalysis on the interior, although if Shukra is nicely placed by Rashi the mate could be a tremendous asset socially on the public exterior surface of life.

Commercial relationships (3) are naturally focused on wealth-development (bhava-3 = 2nd-from-2nd). During Shukra bhukti, Meena knows that folks who share one's wealth hunger [Shukra] can become intensely bonded via the conversations and planning for accumulations of treasuries .

In a masculine nativity, Shukra as randhresha-8 indicates complexity of fortune from the wife. She can be highly financially privileged esp. from inheritance (8) or from her own entrepreneurial business (3). If Shukra's connections to bhava-8 are strong, wife may be a surgeon, psychiatrist, detective, or private banker; inter alia. Nevertheless, she may have an aesthetic inclination toward conducting other partnerships outside marriage. These hidden partnerships are Typically, not sexually passionate, but they are important to the woman's well-being because they involve wealth, beauty, and perhaps other sensual pleasures.

  • For example, should a Meena native marry a surgeon wife, he may come to know that she forms very close relationships with her medical practice colleagues.

  • The closeness involves money, social approval, high-stakes trust, and a great deal of confidential information.

  • This woman's Meena husband would benefit from accepting that - Shukra as vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 -- he has very little knowledge or control over what she does in her business, and that he is naturally prohibited from finding out.

  • If he allows her to add money to the joint assets of marriage (8), without growth-challenging her about how she got it, she will happily [Shukra] do so!

Sensual pleasures tend to involve the native in hidden activities. The Meena native loves secrets, including confidential information, hidden money, and magical or tantric initiation. In relationships with Feminine Nativities, great intrigue and intense conversation.

Meena natives have throughout the lifetime, a tendency to benefit from the financial contributions of the spouse (8). In a rashi of Budha, may enjoy esoteric thinking. In a rashi of Chandra especially in Aśleṣa nakshatram, Somana is sentimentally attracted to the task of meeting the secret emotional needs of others.

as ruler of bhava-3 , Shukra feels pleasure from indulgence in the personal narrative, and from conversations both internal and external. Pleasure from business administration, organizing information (3), short term travel (3), and mentalistic pursuits. Wealth from self-owned business (3, 2nd-from-2nd) is favored when the native serves the interests of women and those who love them. A business managing secrets would be especially successful if Shukra is strong.

Periods of Shukra for Meena indriya-lagna natives may produce success in self-owned business (3), particularly when the focus of the self-owned business is related to the feminine aesthetic (attractive clothing, lovely ornaments, and luxuries). In addition, Shukra bhukti will produce some intrigue related to bhava-8, monies of the spouse being hidden, or very complex insurance dealings. If Shukra is strong enough to initiate a divorce, it will be amicable.

  • In the nativity of the husband, particular implications include the spouse's charms becoming attractive to another.

  • In the nativity of the wifely-companion, likelihood of polarizing catalysis from other women with whom one's husband is involved business-wise. Or, from women with whom one is personally involved at a level of intensive interpersonal conversation, a nearly sibling-like relationship.

For both male and Feminine Nativities, if Shukra bhukti cause upheaval, it is worth waiting patiently for a harmonious resolution, knowing that Shukra will re-balance the upset toward the end of the period.

In contrast to Kanya lagna, for which the natural challenger papagraha vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 Mangala carries the potential to cause serious polarizing catalysis during His periods, the Meena indriya-lagna native need not worry much about the outcome of vikrama-pati+randhresha-8 periods of Shukra. As a natural pleasure-giver subhagraha, Shukra tends to produce wealth, pleasure, and harmony whatever the circumstances.

Sacred Jewels for Shukra = Flawless Diamond = hira for Meena indriya-lagna

QUOTATION Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 113

"For the Pisces Ascendant, Venus will be lord of the 3rd and 8th , two inauspicious houses.

It will therefore, not be advisable for the native s of this Ascendant to wear a Diamond even when Venus is in the 3rd or the 8th in his own sign in a birth chart."


vriddhi-pati-11 + ruler-of-12

Pragmatic and conventional vriddhi-pati-11 +ruler-of-12 Professor Shani gives profit and takes it away.

Periods of Shani build income, earn goals, and reward achievement. The same periods create loneliness, isolation, and a profound loss of identity. It is the great irony of the turning of the cycle of birth and death, that at the moment of accomplishment of a goal, the karma is completed, and one tends to lose interest in the activity. Enthusiasm withers, and the once-sought-after goal recedes into the past.

  • If Professor Shani is favorable, the ruler-of-12 implications may include foreign travel, ashram retreat, healing hospitalization, and relaxing spas, rather than marital conflict or wandering.

In any case, Shani bhukti are distinguished by hard work which is profitable, and sober realism which reminds the native that no matter how glorious the accomplishment or how great the earnings - one can't take it with one, after all..

Shani-Simha-6 is always a challenging and contradictory placement. Political critics (Simha, 6-criticism ) may accuse Shani of illegal blocking, restringing, limiting, restraining, preventing, or seizing.

QUOTATION Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology . Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 117

Sacred Jewels for Shani - Blue Sapphire (Nilam) for Meena indriya-lagna

  • "For the Pisces Ascendant, Saturn rules the 11th and the 12th houses.

  • He is, therefore, not considered auspicious for this Ascendant.

  • Moreover, Saturn is an enemy of Jupiter, the lord of this Ascendant

Still, if Saturn is in his own sign in the 11th or in the Ascendant, Blue Sapphire can be used with advantage in the major period of Saturn. ..."

Rahu = co-lord of dushthamsha bhava-12Kumbha.

In general Rahu-ratna (gomedha) is to be avoided as an amplifier of the negative attributes of personality which can cause withdrawal and isolation from the vitality of life.

For specific purposes such as taking extended religious retreat, establishment of meditation practice, long foreign assignment or extended pilgrimage, laboratory or library-based sanctuary research, and other long periods of sequestered reflective thought, a Gomedha might possibly be supportive.

If Professor Rahu's classroom is located in either rashi of maraka Mangala = dangerous for Meena indriya-lagna. Even for the privacy-and-prayer target, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-12 and its occupants are highly benevolent .

  • Professor Rahu and Professor 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.)

Rahu is co-lord of bhava-12 Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) is unlikely to be a beneficial gem * except* for matters of meditation and withdrawal into the hermit's cave of reflective awareness, and even then only if the lord of bhava-12 and its occupants are auspicious.


Professor Ketu's teachings for Meena indriya-lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Ketu's house; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied rashi.

Professor Ketu is co-lord of bhava-9 Vṛścika, Therefore, Ketu-ratna may be a beneficial gem for matters of acquisition of wisdom-teaching and priestly rituals -- if the lord of bhava-9 and its occupants are auspicious.

Even if auspicious, the nature of the wisdom-preaching shall certainly get "Ketu-ized" showing an emphasis upon withdrawal from the ceremonial displays of public religion and toward the deepest personal detachment leading to complete surrender.
