Puja for Shukra Mahadasha

saratheswathee_sinhala.jpg

A 20-year devotion to Laxmi-Sarasvati-Parvati = supports the highest aspirations of Shukra Mahadasha.

  • Gyana intellectual-analytical: primary * worth-ship * worship of Sarasvati
  • Bhakti emotional -psycho-spiritual: primary * worth-ship * worship of Parvati
  • Karma material-practical-sensual: primary * worth-ship * worship of Laxmi

These three aspects of feminine civilization cannot be permanently separated but there is usually one aspect which is the most attractive [Shukra] to the native. Feel free to develop all three according to your tastes!

The 20-year puja should be understood not as idolatry of some external deity.

Rather it is a practice of acknowledgment and deepening of one's own internal quest for knowledge, pleasure, storage, balance, satisfaction, and union with Other.

Special advice for Shukra bhukti when Shukra holds the [nīcha] amsha

Nichha status suggests occasional Learning Pathway experiences involving women suffering from low self-worth [Kanya 12th-from-balancing Tula]. Often during Shukra bhukti. Wise awareness and mature planning can avoid most typical disappointments of [nīcha] Shukra.

Generally, [nīcha] Shukra signifies weakened equality behavior of femine-figures in one's life such as coworkers, aunts, sisters, wife-partner, neighbors, boss, government officials.

Typically, they avow [Shukra covenant] intent to act with fairness, justice, equal-share of work, cooperation, parity. These ladies make promises, contracts, trusts, deals, bargains, vows. Naturaally, having made an agreement, one trusts that this person is capable of upholding the terms of agreement. Yet circumstances evolve and it becomes clear that they cannot fulfill the promise.

When this happens, there is no need to over-react. The root cause = the lady has low self-esteem. She does not value herself. At the basis of her inability to act with mutual fairness is her low self-valuation. The culprits may also be masculine-figures who are in a negotiating role, agreeing on a settlement, or doing other balancing work.

The [nīcha] agent can be any gender who is expected to fulfill an agreement but who does not meet reasonable equity expectations. In extreme cases [such as amplification via Rahu] there can be outright fraud. But normally the problem is a character weakness on the part of the agent. They did intend to act justly, but were unable to carry through their promise due to low self-esteem.

There is no need to be overly suspicious of women or other Shukra-karaka agents. However, it is sensible during any period of [nīcha] Shukra to not naively over-invest in outcomes involving women, contracts, or fair conditions.

Shukra-Shukra svabhukti = the longest individual bhukti of the entire 120 year Vimshottari Dasha.

During the preceding Ketu mahadasha, the attention was focused on distantly visible, external objects [Rahu] which falsely promised the fulfillment of permanent union but which in fact were consistently evasive and disconnected throughout the Ketu era.

At this juncture, Ketu's relentless 7-year narrative of wandering and disconnection is beginning to fade from consciousness. It is time to allow the past to become the past.

Shukra Mahadasha tends to produce 20 years of financial, diplomatic, agreement-seeking, and musical, artistic, designing and balancing activities

When Shukra is well-placed, the three-year-long period of Shukra-Shukra may initiate new social-material relationships that will continue to unfold in nine unique bhukti experiences.

If Shukra yuti additional graha, the nature of those companion graha may contribute to the agreeable circumstances which favor pleasurable, harmonious, financial well-being.

Similarly, incoming drishti to Shukra influences the outcomes of the svabhukti.

If Shukra activates the nakshatra of the radical lagna, or the Nakshatra of Chandra , or if Shukra is lagnesha or Shukra activates Chandra's rashi, the svabhukti may elicit the physical or emotional values of those placements.

Consider Shukra's rulerships

  • For Tula-Born, periods of Shukra entail both clarification of the personality [1] and simultaneously, a series of breakthrough experiences which propels the personality through cycles of sudden change.

In a year or so when dasha sandhi is completed, one begins to feel quite differently. Ketu's narrative of unfulfilled yearning for union with Rahu-Other will subside, and Shukra's sensual materialism and social grace will arise. Give yourself permission to relax without demanding material results while you complete the dasha sandhi.

Others begin to look less like Ketu's intensely desired but utterly unobtainable partner Rahu, and more like mirrors of the Self.

Partnerships lose their Rahu-ized exaggeration. Shukra the Alliance-Maker brings equal, negotiating, human partners in search of justice, settlement of grievances, and a Fair Deal.

But during the first two years of Shukra Mahadasha, the dasha sandhi is still in effect and there is no trustworthy evidence of this impending change. It would be easy to become disheartened if no improvement is seen in the first two years.

However, Shukra forecasts materialization of the instinct to partner. The emptiness of Ketu, the apathy and dissolution of endless longing, will soon recede into memory.

Now Ketu's dissolving delusions have withdrawn into the background and material-plane human partnership [Shukra] becomes viable. It is time to abandon Ketu's deeply familiar routine of wandering from one delusory attachment to the next, sodden with apathy and exhausted by endless grief.

Unlike discontented ashes-to-ashes, dust-to-dust nebulizer Ketu, whose time has passed, Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu is happy to operate here on the Earth plane. Shukra looks forward to bringing the joy of treasury and sensual satisfaction via five-senses pleasures.

If one is not yet married, the Shukra-Shukra svabhukti is a very auspicious time to declare the marriage vow.

Shukra-Shukra bhukti endures for 3 years 5 months. This calendar section = not at all homogenous.

Because Shukra Mahadasha's bhukti = very long-lasting, detailed predictions should be based on the pratyanatardasha = tertiary periods.

For example,

  • during Shukra-Shukra-Guru bhukti , Guru's significations will be distinctively strong and Guru defines a period of several months duration.

  • by extreme contrast, during Surya mahadasha, the quite short Surya-Surya-Guru era = so short that Professor Guru 's influence will not be felt too much unless simultaneously there would be a very strong Guru transit or some other reinforcement.

All of the general karaka behaviors of Shukra are to be expected. Strongly featured are: contractual relationships, bargaining and negotiations, architectural and social arrangements, decoration and design, yoga and balance, graciousness and harmony, marriage-type avowed partnerships and unions, sensual pleasure and luxury, accumulation of material values, and women in every aspect of life such as sister, aunt, female co-worker, female teachers, boss etc. [except the mother, who is Chandra] .

Should Shukra have additional strengths such as yogakaraka, atmakaraka, lagnesha, lord of Svamsha, lord of Chandra's navamsha, lord of the nakshatra of the radical lagna or lord of the Nakshatra of Chandra , lord of the 10th navamsha [career] and other strengths.

  • During the Shukra Mahadasha one wants to be in harmonious and mutually appreciative relationship.

  • Shukra wants to feel luxuriant and financially privileged, in harmonious agreement, a maker of trusts, contracts and alliances, a trader and collector of beautiful things.

Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu = kalatra-karaka. If marriage is desired, and there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity, Shukra svabhukti being the advent of a new life era focused upon partnership, may signal the timing of ceremonial marriage.

Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Shukra activates the professional 7th or 10th radical bhava or 10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra , Professor Bhrigu carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty. Duties are associated with match-making, bargains, agreements, trusts, and contracts. For maximum results, Shukra should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Shukra bhukti during any mahadasha is a common and beneficial time to join the partner in a marriage contract, provided that samchara Rahu-Ketu are transiting a key lagna.

Any Shukra bhukti during any mahadasha is a common and beneficial time to join the partner in a marriage contract. Shukra signifies marriage alliance, equity, fairness, balance, and harmonious agreement.

The marriage-making signification of the Shukra-Shukra svabhukti is exceptionally strong. Because the harmony-seeking, trust-expecting svabhukti of Shukra endures for three years, even nativities with challenging marriage configurations may be able to secure a marriage within the Shukra-Shukra svabhukti.

When the avowal of the holy estate of matrimony during any period of Shukra, the bhava ruled by Shukra may indicate special attributes of the spouse. Also, there is some tendency for expression of the essential qualities of Shukra within the characteristics of the mate, such as a general equanimity, agreeability, and attention to the material benefits of the marital estate.

Sharing Shukra and Solipsistic Surya = mutually adversarial. Shukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and participation while Surya is egocentric, the dramatic center of attention, and radiantly solo.

Naturally Surya's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant male figure and hot, bright, top-of-the-mountain locations are featured.

There may be an unresolvable conflict or disjunction between cool blue Shukra mandate for investment in partnership versus brilliant Surya's independent-minded, willful self-assertiveness.

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney [MR age 47] lost challenge election for Massachusetts US-Senate. Won by incumbent Teddy Kennedy. The entitled, tone-deaf campaigning style of WMR's wife Ann was said to be a major component of the loss * Shukra-Surya bhukti * Surya randhresha unexpected changes

If marriage is desired and Surya activates navamsha 1 or 7, despite Ravi's enemy role with Shukra, the Shukra-Surya bhukti can bring marriage especially to a highly self-confident and independent partner.


Events related to Surya's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions


Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Surya activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking [10th-from-Chandra] Professor Suraja carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with politics, celebrity, charisma, egocentricity, royalty, brilliance, entertainment, game-playing, literary and theatrical creativity. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Surya must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadasha-pati Shukra, and Surya should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Surya bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Surya activates either the Svamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the primary axes of the nativity.

Marriage during a Surya bhukti may signify a lifemate who is brightly independent, uniquely creative, celebrated, regal, entitled, independent-minded, speculative, a master of games, a literary or artistic genius, theatrical, charmingly intelligent, who is gifted in social entertaining, who is frequently half of a political couple.

SEVA FOR CHANDRA

Seat of Mind * Mens * Moon * feelings * emotional flow

During Vimshottari periods of Chandra, SEVA may be offered to the oceans, to mothers-and-children, to charitable organizations that serve young families, and to groups which praise manifestations of the Holy Mother.

Seva offered to mothers, schoolteachers, caretakers, gardeners, fisherwomen, and guardians of the land-and-waters can yield a vastly more effective spiritual healing than any Pearl.

Worship of the Divine Feminine can be found in all of the world's great religious traditions.

Investing assets and attention into agriculture, fishing, gardening, irrigation, and germination is Chandra-positive Earth-seva

Thinking of the past and offering fond appreciation to ancestors

Aid and support provided to professional nurses, schoolteachers, parents-and-grandparents, protectors, and caretakers is a beautiful and Chandra-appropriate SEVa

Consider supporting the protective functions of house-building, sheltering, nesting, fencing, and sustainable settlements. Charities may benefit the denizens of the rivers, lakes, and seas.

The beneficiaries may not express any gratitude for your aid. That is OK. Seva is not intended to produce applause or material rewards. It is intended as a learning tool for expansion of wisdom and compassion.

General characteristics of any Chandra bhukti

An era of amplified feelings for home and homeland. One may seek residence near the ocean shores, or shipbound. Retreat to safety and a secure routine.

Chandra is the garha-karaka for household life. Promoting the experience of familiar, rhythmic, routines and sheltered security Professor Chandra nearly always maintains some degree of comfort. Yet, the outcome depends significantly upon the angle between chidra-karaka Ketu agent of surrender to impermanence and matrikaraka Chandra agent of ancestral deep roots. However, any angle may produce heightened feelings of patriotism, self-defense, attachment to parents, love of the land, need for comfortable rhythms and routines, need for security.

Any nativity may expect an increase in the experiences associated with Chandra such as deeper emotional sensitivity, engagement with matters of security and stability, cultural tap-roots, foundational education, patriotism, defense of national-ethnic boundaries and fenced lands, as well as matters of the mother and her folk.

The specific outcome of any Chandra bhukti depends upon the bhava-activating rulerships held by Chandra as measured from both the indriya-lagna and the Chandra-lagna.

Outcomes are also affected by drishti entering Chandra, by the role of Chandra's planetary ruler, and very importantly by the bhava in which Chandra resides. Chandra is so sensitive psycho-emotionally that Chandra bhukti outcomes are also particularly influenced by transits of Rahu-Ketu or transits of Shani.

In Ketu-Chandra bhukti , Chandra seeks shelter from sudden changes and insecurity along the pilgrim's wandering path.

A time of quiet retreat, ideally near the ocean. Emotional relationships are psychically sensitive and care-taking. Emphasis on domestic routines, food and nurturing, caring for and serving others, staying close to home.


Typical relationship between Chandra and Shukra

Although Professor Chandra has no enemies, Shukra is adversarial toward Chandra. Shukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation while Somana is parental, caretaking, protective and nourishing but not equal as a parent or schoolteacher is surely not the equal of the child.

Naturally Chandra's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant mother-teacher figure and cool, watery, coastal and agricultural locations are featured.

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Shukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus parental Somana's need to control the emotional flow of relationships and in general to maintain high feeling sensitivity with a tendency to emotionalize all experiences.

Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Chandra activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or 10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Somana carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Professor Somana carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with parenting, schoolteaching, security and police protection , farming and fishing, housing and real estate, vehicles and transportation [especially the safety aspects] ritualists and routine-makers, patriotism, and all matters of nourishing and sustaining the place of settlement .

For maximum results, Chandra must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadasha-pati Shukra, and Professor Somana should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.

Particularly for Chandra karma-pati Tula indriya-lagna and also for Makara indriya-lagna where Chandra activates 10th-from-10th, appointment to a higher position of social leadership can be expected to raise the social reputation and increase public regard.

Marriage Covenant + Sacred Vows

Any Chandra bhukti during any mahadasha may signal the timing of ceremonial wedding * formalization of alliance, if Professor Chandra activates either the Svamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity.

Chandra-timed weddings especially indicate matri-karaka qualities of the marital match. The union may emphasize adherence to ethno-cultural folkways, emotional security, established local routines. Spouse may offer a customary, protective, sheltering, parental style of relating to the spouse.

The partner may behave in ways that are similar to the mother, emotionally sensitive, securing, or responsive to feelings.

Chandra can signify a foundational provider, caretaker, guardian, gardener, or patriot. The mate also may have a connection with real-estate, transportation, border defense, policing, or schooling.

Mangala-targeted SEVa

Celebrate Kuja Colors. While offering Seva and in all activities, throughout any Mangala bhukti, honor Martial Mangala by wearing blood-red and black garments, gold ornaments, and by vigorous exercising the movement-seeking physical body.

Learning pathway = Mangala seva = movement

Conscious service is a fabulous learning tool. The knowledge revealed within this learning pathway is tightly focused upon one's own planetary placement. By observing its operational patterns in the lives of others, one may gain swift insight into one's own situation. Using the added wisdom gained through Seva, change one's own narrative consciously.

As a learning tool, a remediation, and a mitigant, Seva can be much more effective than ratna, puja, or any other upaya. Targeted Seva can alleviate the violence of Kuja''s unconsciously dominating competitiveness by dynamically promoting the well-being of the Mangala people.

Service for Masculine Pushing Energies

During Mangala bhukti, intentional Seva may focus upon charitable service dedicated to Mangala-figures in any gender, such as athletes, activists, competitors, warriors, military, diggers, divers, plumbers, drillers, explorers, inventors, detectives, interventionists, pioneers, and champions.

Mangala prefers to work on a physical level. Service offered to the beneficiaries of the Mangala-Seva should involve physical activity that is sporting, challenging, thrusting, penetrating, and forward-directed. For example, leading science students in vigorous outdoor fieldwork exploration is a Mangala-seva.

Discovery Exploration Pursuit

Mangala-seva helps those who pursue discoveries. Revealers of newness can be Mangala agents, such as therapists revealing buried trauma, archeologists revealing ancient worlds, defense attorneys revealing facts of the crime, research scientists revealing unseen patterns, or forensic coroners revealing conditions of decease. Mangala seva can be offered to assist any agent who is pro-actively pushing toward a discovery goal.

Example for Mangala-Kanya = skilled volunteering or fundraising for legal investigations supporting those falsely convicted of crimes.

Recognition for offering Seva?

Seva beneficiaries might not express any gratitude for your aid. That is OK. Seva is not intended to produce applause or material rewards. If pursued for the sole purpose of social validation, proving one's noble character, or making a public display of holy virtue, Seva tends to backfire. Offer seva not for reason of improving another person, but rather as a method of self-learning about the energy of this graha.

Sharing Shukra and Motivated Mangala are neutral toward each other.

Sharing Shukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level while Mangala is sexual, active, pursuing, and athletic. These two sets of behaviors are compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally, Mangala's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant competitor, high-energy, athletic or warrior-figure and hot, arid locations are featured. The emphasis is on muscular movement, sexual activity, or sport.

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Shukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus hot, blood-red competitive, sometimes dominating Mangala's drive to engage in continuous activity. Shukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Mangala is single-mindedly moving always in pursuit of some physical goal.


A life narrative wherein Mangala-Mesha starts a Big Fight during Mangala bhukti

  • de Mundi Systemate 1642-1726 Isaac Newton launched a bitter attack against his adversary Gottlieb Leibniz regarding who indeed had invented the calculus. Friends of both scholars had asked them to stop this long-lasting diatribe, but Newton apparently could not stop heckling Leibniz. The accusations [6] sullied the dignity-honor of both parties, and left the intellectual legacy of Leibniz in permanent disrepute. [6th-from-Chandra] = bhava-10 Vṛścika [reputation] with Mangala-Mesha furthermore in 6th-from-10th [bhava-3 writing] suggesting that matters of public reputation and respect were especially contentious and even vicious for Newton. As a gay man was constantly heckled by his adversaries especially his mother's husbands, Newton was apparently very sensitive on the point. * Shukra-Mangala bhukti [age 57, R-K return]

Yet, she was beset by severe melancholia = Kuja activates 3. Her husband complained bitterly in his journals about Louisa's dereliction of duty. LJA's mother-in-law Abigail Adams travelled to WDC to hostess. Louisa, in a state of deep shock, simply could not do it.


Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Mangala activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Kuja carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Mangala-type duties are Typically, associated with movement, dance, energy, competition, conquest, innovation, engines and engineering, invasion, surgery, sexual pursuit, sport, physical body and its sciences, military, explosion, drilling, diving, weaponry and warfare, heat, speed, investigation, exploration, and male-dominated environments.

For maximum results, Kuja must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadasha-pati Shukra, and Professor Angarika should possess several strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Mangala bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Kuja activates either the Svamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity.

Mangala-timed vows especially indicate the qualities of Angarika in the marital union, including a physically able, athletic, champion, competitive, exploratory, innovative, dynamically energetic, or warlike mate.

SEVA FOR RAHU

Ministries of service offered to Mix-Master Rahu may include beneficiaries who have exotic, culturally mixed, smoky-oily, or light-speckled qualities.

Shimmering Rahu is honored by Seva to those considered outsiders, considered magical but perhaps dangerous, considered masters of illusion, considered as dark foreigners, considered related to oils, gasses, or grease.

Roguish Rahu appreciates the risk-takers, the over-reaching, the opportunists, the ambitious, the boundary-breaching, the cultural-mixers, the pretenders, the impostors, the grandiose, the fascinating, the marvelous, and those colored in many shades of dark purple or brown.

Extraordinary Rahu appreciates philanthropic donations to communities of mixed ethnicity, those who hold multiple passports, organizations the serve immigrants learning new languages and customs while keeping the old traditions too, and those who produce marvelous displays that disappear into a puff of smoke.

Over-reaching Rahu accepts offerings of oils, incense, fireworks, and exaggerated imagery such as theatrical masks.

Also consider to donate in charity, camouflage clothing, mechanisms of inflation or amplification such as sound-speakers, magic tricks, cosmetics, generators of illusion such as theatrical stage equipment, and entrancing images such as weeping statues and doctored photographs.

Relationship Risks


Sensual and materialistic Shukra naturally seeks the pleasures of harmonious, proportionate, and mutually appreciative relationship.

  • Sharing Shukra prefers a state of luxurious pleasure, guaranteed via legal terms of agreement

  • Shukra = a maker of contracts and alliances , a trader and collector of beautiful things.

  • Shukra-Rahu bhukti introduce Rahu-type agents [usually partners in business or marriage] who promise gracious lifestyles involving a balance of opposites and equal contributions to the fund of shared wealth.

  • One may indeed self-elevate into the higher rank and its privileges while in company of the Rahu agent[s] .

Rahu finds opportunity via Culture-clash + Money

[Rahu-Kumbha] [Rahu in bhava-5]

  • The Mirror 1895-1986 theosophy Jiddu Krishnamurti [JK age 16] JK's father filed a lawsuit against English spiritual leader Annie Besant, seeking to recover child-custody over his purportedly kidnapped son JK. The lawsuit charged that pedophile Leadbeater had groomed teenage JK into a sexual relationship. Evoking a bitter cultural narrative of stolen patrimony, the father's traditional rights are upheld by Indian courts. * Shukra-Rahu bhukti * Rahu culture-clash

Toward the end of the Shukra-Rahu bhukti it may become more obvious that most of the Rahu agent's claims are mimicking one's own sensually indulgent and acquisitive nature.

Rahu is agreeable during Shukra Mahadasha. His actions may be thrilling, exotic, irregular, fraudulent, or risk-taking in regard to contracts, covenants, vows, trusts, promises, deals, arrangement, and agreements.

Her father [Surya] placed YO into a mental institution. Although Rahu-6 signals temporary injustices, her Surya rules-12 long-term imprisonment. YO had trouble getting released -- even though the divorce-related depression had ended.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Rahu bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity.

Rahu-timed weddings show Rahu-the-Mixmaster at work. Rahu-timed alliance suggests a potentially impulsive but also socially mobile and goal-oriented alliance.

The partner often hails from a fascinatingly different set of cultural roots, a different demographic, exotic social class, unconventional age-gap, thrilling race, or a different religion. These variations promote roguish Rahu's over-reaching ascent. The partnership seems intriguing and exciting.

Entrancing Professor Rahu sees in the partner a mesmerizing opportunity for expedient achievement. Rahu may feel utterly fascinated or even psychologically obsessed with the must-have Other. He acts instinctively without delay. There is often relatively little time invested in preparation for the ceremony. There may be only partial agreement of the families.

Rahu-Rahu svabhukti = a classic era for impassioned or unorthodox marriage decisions, often in culturally-mixed circumstances which enflame the ambitions of both partners.

So long as the partners continue to reach their respective goals through agency of the union. agency of the union, Rahu-timed avowals may endure. Longevity of the sacred pledge depends upon the marriage profile elements in both nativities, particularly the 7th-from-Chandra.

Maraka Agency for Professor Rahu * Exit Opening for dematerialization

Shri Rahu is a a natural maraka agent. His periods are empowered with Permission to cross shadowy boundaries , and the line between incarnate vs. disincarnate is just such a boundary. Therefore Rahu needs no further justification via His ruler in order to effect a Release.

For any lagna, Rahu's maraka potential is enhanced if Rahu occupies bhava-2 or Rahu occupies bhava-7.

Rahu can also produce the maraka effects of His ruler, or of graha yuti Rahu. When Rahu is ruled by OR yuti the ruler of bhava-2 or ruler of bhava-7, Rahu obtains enhanced marana-karaka status, because. entrancing Professor Rahu becomes empowered to teach upon the subject of saturation [2] and balanced completion of the contract [7] .

Perhaps the strongest maraka empowerment for Rahu is the placement of Rahu-2 or Rahu-7

  • Miracle Roses 1207-1231 St. Elizabeth of Hungary [EH age 24] departed her fleshbody on 17-Nov-1231 during her Shukra-Rahu bhukti. Rahu-Kumbha occupies bhava-2 thus Rahu gains additional strength in Kumbha rashi.

Ultimately, Rahu is a wildcard by nature, and virtually any placement of Rahu by rashi or by bhava is sufficient to enact a dematerialization of illusory form

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman, Autobiography of a Vedic Astrologer , p. 99-100:


"It has been my experience over nearly sixty years that Rahu as sub-lord, whether in his own period or in the period of other planets, would always create problems of a serious nature, affecting family and personal matters, which would test the mental and physical stamina of an individual whatever be his social, educational, or financial attainments.

  • It is also found, contrary to general belief, that planets like the Sun and Mercury, occupying risk-rewarding Rahu's constellations are capable of conferring happy results financially and career-wise but would create situations in domestic life, which could shatter a person's self-confidence and make him experience results which he would ordinarily never expect to happen.

There are of course exceptions which I will discuss in due course..."

Sharing Shukra and Generous Guru are generally adversarial in their mutual goals and methods.

Sharing Shukra favors social partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level.

By contrast, Guru is philosophical not sensual, accumulates wisdom not material goods, and Guru favors the one-to-many relationship of teacher-to-students, not a one-to-one like Shukra's marriage or advising pairs.

These two sets of behaviors are largely incompatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership. Guru does not have an equal partner and He is not much interested in material reality, being rather a philosopher savant.

Naturally, Guru's bhava-of-residence determines the manifestation of this bhukti. Overall, Guru bhukti signify the arrival of a significant teacher-preacher figure within wise, sacred locations. The locations are often determined by the residential bhava of Guru.

For example

  • Guru-12 location would be meditative or imaginative or distant world
  • Guru-9 would be a classic university setting
  • Guru-4 would be a local settlement
  • Guru-3 likely a commercial business.

Events related to rulership and karaka-signification

Brihaspati's curricular emphasis = typically placed upon the development of wisdom and expressions of abundance and expansion.

Periods of Brihaspati the university-karaka provide likely time-periods in which to complete a tertiary diploma following many [Guru] years of study, particularly if Guru is otherwise associated by rashi or by bhava, and particularly if the native intends to use their knowledge in order to teach.

Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Brihaspati activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Guru carries the potential to elevate One may be required to accept recognized positions of leadership duty, governance, regulation, systematization, hierarchies, and the maintenance of the legal order. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Guru must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadasha-pati Shukra, and Guru should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.

Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

If marriage is desired and Guru activates navamsha 1 or 7, the Shukra-Guru bhukti can bring marriage especially to a teacher-preacher, priest, professor or world traveler.

Any bhukti of Guru during any Mahadasha is generally favorable for biological or creative reproduction, so long as Guru and bhava-5 are reasonably well disposed. Marriage during Guru bhukti often brings a child very quickly within the same Guru bhukti.

Children

There may be some disjunction between cool blue Shukra's mandate for equity in partnership versus warm, golden Guru's procreative abundance. Often there is some conflict between the sensuality of marriage versus the children's demand for wise attention.

Guru bhukti of any mahadasha are naturally abundant periods which tend to produce children on the basis of Brihaspati's role as a natural putra-putriki karaka without regard to bhava-activating rulerships or other rules. Even an otherwise child-resistant nativity may produce children during a Guru Bhukti, so long as samchara Rahu-Ketu are transiting via a key lagna.

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney acquired two children in in Shukra-Guru bhukti , putriki-karaka Brihaspati. Eldest daughter by adoption ++ bio-daughter, both during 1969.

Shukra and Shani are excellent friends.

Sharing Shukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level while social-order Shani is also materialistic, structured, and much supportive of legal contracts such as marriage which regulate and organize society overall.

These two sets of behaviors are highly compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally Shani's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant elder, regulator, bureaucrat or holder of traditional authority can be expected [perhaps an entire society of them] . Cold, dry, dark, scarcely nourishing locations are featured. The emphasis is on distribution of scarce resources and adherence to the law.

Generally, there is a favorable outcome as cool blue Shukra's mandates equity in partnership while cold icy blue Shani mandates strict observance of the social law.

Sensual Shukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Shani is more concerned with physical survival and rigid class structure. Yet, the two goals of large-scale group regulation and contractually balanced interpersonal marriages are quite compatible and those who respect both sets of rules usually receive social approval.

Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Shani activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Shanaicarya may socially elevate. One may be required to accept recognized positions of leadership duty, governance, regulation, systematization, hierarchies, and the maintenance of the legal order. Promotion in rank and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Shani must occupy a supportive angle relative to the Mahadasha-pati Shukra. Also, Shani should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.

  • Green Mile 1947- horror-fiction Stephen King In Apr-1973, SK's first novel Carrie was accepted for national publication. Earnings begin and Carrie is critically acclaimed as a significant text in the horror genre.* Shukra-Shani bhukti * Shani-3 activates 5 = 3rd-from-3rd


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Shani bhukti during any mahadasha may signal the timing of formalization of alliance. Shani must rule either Svamsha or navamsha-7 +++ a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu must contact one of the required axes of the nativity.

Weddings matched to a jarana-karaka Shani bhukti especially indicate an elder, more experienced, or more senior mate. Shani durosha-karaka also suggests union with a hard-working, class-conscious, sober, socially responsible partner who shows respect for law, longevity, and endurance.

Niyama-karaka Shani may require weddings that are less the consequence of personal affection and more imposed by societal rules. Shanaicarya Bhagwan may require a marriage to regulate the weight of shared children. Orderly Shani bhukti-pati can signal witnessed vows of sacred ordination such as Holy Orders.

The spouses may be marrying as an expression of duty or in conformance with conventional expectations. Shani-timed vows may also signal a heavy governance portfolio that is shared by the partners. Shani-timed events often carry the weight of pressing material-social obligations.

Special notes for Shani-timed marriage

When Shani activates the 1-7 navamsha axis, the lifeplan features an orderly expectation of negotiated contracts. Shani imposes pressure to form a partnership according to the conventions of the social order. Shani disfavors romantic love, poetic ideals, and creative entitlement.

For partners older than age 36, the alliance may elegantly align personal material goals with dignified social standing. Benefits of Shani-timed marriage may include loyalty to the contract and longevity of the working pair.

The conventional expectations regarding division of labor within the union must be scrupulously maintained, particularly with regard to social class, age, position in the hierarchy, caste, and rank.

For one possessed of mature, realistic, and sober character, who is able to accept the weight of social obligation, the agreement may well fulfill the expectations of its many stakeholders, including parents, extended family, ethnic group, and faith community.

Shani suggests a likelihood that one partner is significantly elder to the other.

Shani bhukti ailments and worry, learning about limits and austerities

Subject: Re: Jyotisha Follow-up question regarding topic discussed in the reading

My follow-up question: How soon can I expect to feel better physically and mentally? As you know, I have a Simha indriya-lagna birth chart with Swati Moon in bhava-3. You said I'm in a Shani bhukti. Ouch! Everything hurts! Plus I worry constantly, and that alone is exhausting.

Thanks for your reply.




Namaste,

The Vimshottari Dasha timeline for your nativity shows that you are currently enduring a three-years-two-months Shani bhukti within the 20-year-long Shukra mahadasha.

Because Seriously Sober Shanaicarya rules bhava-6 concerning imbalances and ailments [and you have graha located in 6 but not in 7] , most occurrences of Shani bhukti can be expected to match 3rd-dimensional [real physical life] reality experience of ailment, accusations, animosities, disorder, persistently imbalanced conditions , and other aggrieved conditions.

The current Shani bhukti runs from 2015 until 2018.... There are nine mahadasha periods; some are short and some are long. The longer the mahadasha, the longer is each bhukti ection of the mahadasha. It just so happens that Shukra controls the longest mahadasha [for you, from age 39 until age 59] and Therefore, the specific sub-section [bhukti] of the Shukra mahadasha that is controlled by the Shani Narrative is also extra-long [3 years 3 months] .

Luckily you are older than 36 [the age of Shani's maturity] , therefore you have the stamina and maturity to not only survive the restrictions, constant worrying about scarcity , and often the tediousness of a Shani mahadasha, but those older than 36 can often thrive during the otherwise oppressive Shani-narrative conditions. Just knowing that the English word 'worry' means 'to strangle' can lead an older person to chuckle with wisdom, realizing that one can by succumbing to negative thought patterns indeed strangle oneself!

Shani rewards sobriety, realism, neutrality, and social duty. However, He generally will not reward [and may apply strict measures to] any of the narratives of Surya which can include individual intelligence, creativity, drama, amusements, and celebrity.

The older people become, the more they can appreciate the value of discipline and orderliness ; Therefore, the easier [relatively] the reoccurring Shani bhukti tend to be.

Nevertheless, Shani's bhava-activating rulership for the Simha nativity [yours] is extra demanding, since Shani activates not only the heavily dutiful partnership bhava-7 but also the adversarial and remedy-seeking bhava-6.

Optimal health is likely to suffer and this likely places a strain on relationships, and although there is usually no worry about long-term relationship endurance, shorter-term relationships may be growth-challenging to sustain.

Typically, the causes of the ailments are not easily seen; yet once the cause is unveiled the Shani-type symptoms begin to recede [slowly of course -- this is Shani the Delayer at work] .

The causes according to Jyotisha would be Shani-ish: various old resentments, betrayals, and other sources of bitterness [Shani is bitter] which overwhelm the healthy flexibility of life, inducing stiffness and brittleness, while a narrative of blame and frustration tends to circulate in the mental patterns.

The more compassionately one is able to locate and honor the old resentments, and the more complete one's acceptance of earlier deprivations as useful [if painful] learning experience , the gentler are the symptoms.

The purpose of Shani bhukti is to call one's attention to the intentional reality of limits and structures. When [if] one is able to re-visit the victim experience with more adult and neutral eyes, looking for evidence of a learning experience encapsulated within the suffering of exploitation or mistreatment , then Shani's narrative will be complete, and the present-time suffering will generally cease.

Meanwhile, Shani is a yogakaraka graha when measured from your Chandra-Tula, which suggests that you would not lose every iota of creativity and fun during Shani bhukti. Rather, via knowing your own healing rhythms [Chandra] you would find quieter habits and routines to accommodate the pinching limits of Shani while more restrained creative, intellectual development could continue.

The current Shani bhukti is approximately 2/3 completed, with 1/3 left to go. Since gochara [transiting] Shani is presently traveling via bhava-5 [Dhanus] related to the heart, and Shani is a planetary enemy of Surya your lagnesha, and Surya signifies the heart as well, quality Ayurvedic medical care with an emphasis on heart-health is always recommended.

Rahu has been transiting across your Simha indriya-lagna and He just now is crossing the end of Magha moving into Aśleṣa. In about a week from now, you should start to feel an intense hunger for privacy, for sleep, for meditation practices and dreamwork, and for living in distant worlds -- much more than normal, due to Rahu triggering a once-every-9-years 6/12 axis return WHILE Shani activates Rahu-6 is the bhukti-pati.

The physical body will remain cranky but your psychic life can be expected to light up from Rahu's visit, which will reveal the phantom-like imagery of the ancient betrayals [not always from the current lifetime] that are triggering Shani's ailments.

At the sandhi-spanning shift into the Budha bhukti, considering that Budha activates bhava-3 ++ natal cluster of graha in 3, there should be a gradual lifting of Shani's weight replaced by a burst of mental activity and engagement with siblings, neighbors, writing, and messaging.

Until then, Shani rewards patience and steady compassion for one's own [self-chosen] limitations .

In addition to the meditation and dreamwork clairsentient guidance activated by Rahu's 18-month-long visit to bhava-12, if you are interested in psychotherapy, that modality is also activated by the Rahu transit via bhava-12.

Psychotherapy does not have magical powers. Still, it can be a valuable tool for asking more targeted questions about the duty-buried grievances which motivate the Shani-ailments , and getting more insightful answers.

The purpose of every bhukti is to produce a pattern of experiences which develop self-knowledge. The intention during periods of Shani is not to "release" grievances but rather to accept and honor the learning experiences provided by the conflicts and mistreatments of yore . Shani is too rigid and stodgy to allow a smooth release. He resists change. However, He does reward realism, acceptance of what-is, maturity and patience.

Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life's endeavors,

Sincerely, BPL

What to Expect during a Babbling Budha Bhukti

Evaluate the placements of Budha.

Consider

  • the rashi + bhava owned and occupied by Shanideva Bhagavan
  • the mutual angle from the Mahadasha-pati to the bhukti-pati
  • incoming-outgoing graha-drishti
  • current gochara transits
  • chronological age of the native
  • culturally expected events for this age

Blustering bantering Budha has matured ?

Are the Mahadasha-pati Shukra and the bhukti-pati businesslike Budha mutually friendly? [Yes! They enjoy cooperating!]

Sharing Shukra and Busy Budha = happy friends. Shukra favors partnership, pairing, parity, and equal participation on the sensual, wealth-building material level while communicative, team-working Budha is also materialistic, conversational, instructional, and sexual.

These two sets of behaviors are nicely compatible within marriage and also within many types of business partnership.

Naturally bantering Budha's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti, but overall the arrival of a significant sibling, young person, student, report-writer, or media-messenger can be expected. Green, somewhat dry, quick-changing, commercial, youth-oriented locations are featured. The emphasis is on information transaction, planning, schedules, and discussions.

Generally, there is a favorable outcome. Cool blue Shukra's mandates equity in partnership; while bright green Budha's mandate is evangelical, conversational, instructional, manual, and sexual. Budha activates the hands.

Sensual Shukra tends to prefer a pattern of accumulating and appreciating sensual pleasures whereas Budha is more concerned with talking, writing, and touching. The two agendas are quite compatible.



Events related to Shri Budha's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions

Budha can be a karaka for tasks related to studying, reading, writing, explaining, describing, instructing, playing an instrument, drawing, diagraming, handling, and counting.

Budha does planning, scheduling, documenting, reporting, announcing, messaging, and ticketing. Budha can represent curiosity, handcraft, adolescents, younger siblings, and young people in general. Also Budha is a general karaka for business, sales, marketing, advertising, and transactions.

As the karaka for passing examinations, receiving licenses, and earning a diploma or certificate at the successful conclusion of a course of study, Budha often grants school graduation.

Leadership Duties + Public Respect + Professional Recognition

When Budha activates the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Para carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Budha-types duties are Typically, associated with communication, commercial business , marketing, instruction, media-messaging, evangelism, publication, reports and announcements, planning and analysis, management, manufacturing, manipulation, handcraft, apprenticeship, clinical practice, and cooperative work in cohort, entourage, ensemble, or team environments.

For maximum results, Budha must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadasha-pati Shukra, and Professor Budha-smargara should possess other strengths via bhava-activating rulership, rashi, companion graha, drishti, inter alia.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Any Budha bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Budha activates either the Svamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu which contacts one of the required axes of the nativity.

Weddings that occur during a bhukti of samdeza-karaka Budha may indicate that one of the partners is significantly younger [youthful Kumara] . Budha-timed weddings also highlight the spouse's mental ability. The marital match may be a capable writer, an attorney, a commercial business manager, conductor of an entourage, ensemble team-mate. The other-half may be involved in sales, marketing, advertising, or public-relations. A younger match may have a gesturing, mercurially alert style which later matures into communicative skill.

Marriages timed by Busy Buzzy Budha suggest adolescence, students-studies, sibling-cousins and team-mates, critical thinking, logical argumentation, technical facility, handcraft, communication programming, writing-publishing, scripting, journalism, reports-announcements, commercial business, information delivery, rapidly interactive media-messaging.

chidra-dasha * the final bhukti of the 20-year Mahadasha of Shukra

The final bhukti requires return of unusable energies, cutting-off, severance, release, forgiveness


Generally, Vimshottari periods of Professor Ketu are scheduled for the purpose of release and forgiveness. The substance, idea, person, relationship, entity, or social role that is surrendered during the Ketu period is by definition spiritually unnecessary. It has outlived its usefulness and it has lost its vitality Maintaining this enervated phenomenon [whatever it is] is costing too much energy within the life system. Thus it is scheduled for release at the appointed time.

Examples of things to be released include

  • once-cherished experiences from other lives which may be released as they are no longer benefitting the current life
  • outdated relationships that no longer match the authentic life-force energy of the native
  • parts of the body that may be holding genetic memories that are scheduled for disconnection [hair, teeth, appendix, sometimes other limbs or organs]
  • legal contracts which expire
  • agreements which have fulfilled their purpose
  • people, places, beliefs, plans, things which - fulfilled or not - have entered a state of exhaustion

May signal the end of a 20-year-era of diplomacy, negotiations, deal-making, trades. Long-sustained arrangements may quietly collapse.

Commonly, a time of marital separation.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono [YO age 40] Jul-1973 begin 18-month marital separation from Imagine 1940-1980 Beatle John Lennon . four years after their Mar-1969 marriage to , the couple began to live separately and pursue different careers. JL took a new partner * Shukra-Ketu chidra-dasha..

Professor Ketu is Rahu's dried and lifeless tail which flutters in the ethers like a flag in the wind. Ketu periods are often associated with the cutting-off of some desiccated appendage .

Depending upon the characteristics of the forthcoming Surya Mahadasha,

one may observe the building of impetus to follow the Father's example, to understand the father's personality, to become more political or more entitled, to express creativity and certainty.

As Shukra's concerns with harmony, pleasure, equity, justice, relationships are released into the past, the bhava containing Ketu may show the final expression of the closing era.

  • USA-Sen-Tenn VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore [Ketu in classroom-9] Tula]. During Shukra-Ketu chidra-dasha, 23-y-o Gore attended Vanderbilt-U Divinity School [9] to pursue a secular program in social justice philosophy [9, Thula] . In less than a year, AAG abandoned religious studies [Ketu-9] when his yuvati-pati Surya Mahadasha started, age 24. As the child of two lawyers, AAG quickly switched to law school, beginning the path to a political career like his USA-Senator father [Surya].

Along with Professor Mangala, Ketu is the co-ruler of transformative randhra-bhava-8. After releasing the unnecessary form, one often begins a path toward rejuvenation.

Depending on Ketu's placements, one may choose to Abandon all limitations, barriers, constraints

  • Grateful Dead 1942-1995 guitarist Jerry Garcia 1975-1985 marked a period of sexual profligacy, and rampant heroin and other drug use, along with unmanaged diabetes [Shukra sugars] . The phase of intense indulgence started in Shukra-Ketu chidra-dasha and persisted until a healing crisis = Chandra-Rahu bhukti [Guru-yuti-Shukra] ** Ketu in classroom-3 depression


Cut-cut-cut * release, unbind * divide, split, scathe, purge, expunge

In the special case of Shukra Mahadasha final period of Ketu, the * cutting * emphasis of [ chidra-dasha] * is doubled by the additional chidra-karaka effects of Ketu the Abandoner.

  • Louisiana-Gov 1893-1935 Kingfish Huey P. Long * 1929 unsuccessful but bitter impeachment attempt against HPL in the Louisiana Senate * [nīcha- Shukra]-Ketu chidra-dasha

chidrakaraka Ketu may signal surrender , dispersal, walking away, abandonment of a responsibility or a relationship.

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover Less than eight months after he became POTUS-31 in March-1929 [during his Shukra-Budha bhukti ] , HH experienced Black Tuesday terrible stock market crash of October 1929 during Shukra-Ketu . Historians opine that had there been early intervention, the terrible suffering of the Great Depression might have been averted or at least reduced. During his Shukra mahadasha, Hoover was a busy man. He had built a splendid reputation as a capable manager of virtually every aspect of national government. Yet, he had arrived in the most exhausted of all Ketu periods -- the chidra-dasha of Shukra mahadasha. Under the guise of laissez-faire principle, Hoover DID NOTHING.

However Ketu is also a powerful spiritualizing agent.

Despite the presence of partners and potential partners, considerable difficulty experienced in making a successful connection. Apathy and ennui on the part of the native. A feeling of lost cause, unworkable, mismatch. Yet Professor Ketu instills a subtext of need to connect to that exciting Rahu-persona who is in the environment.

Ketu is not desired by Rahu. Feelings of emptiness and rejection.

Before fully realizing that the Desired One no longer matches the authentic spiritual body, Bhukti of Ketuva may produce a vain hope for connection with an unavailable or inappropriate person, social role, idea, or object. Before the realization of the need to release the attachment, even knowing that the desire is lifeless, one may experience the illusion of connection which dissipates into fantasy, numbness, or distraction. Desires are dispersed into "echo" awareness that one is not desired by the object of affection. This is merely an echo of one's own higher consciousness signaling that this Object is no longer suitably connected to oneself * although in other lives and other realities the Object may have been a vital companion.

The barest vestige of a faded connection

Professor Ketu often induces a feeling of attempted reconnection with a person, place, thing, or idea that was significant in a previous life or in a distant phase of the present life. However, the attachment is vestigial, no longer part of the vital script of the true present identity. Thus, connection is often unsustainable for reasons of spirit. The reasons of spirit often have more tangible echoes in reasons of social class attributes, reasons of knowledge lineage, reasons of ethnicity or race, reasons of doctrine, and other formal rationale.

The definitive reason for the "non-connection" experience of Ketu = one sees the object of attachment in a distant mirror, as a mere reflection of an already completed script. The object, for its part, will generally not allow the native to make more than a temporary and superficial connection to itself.

Professor Ketu often induces a feeling feeling of attempted reconnection with a person, place, thing, or idea that was significant in a previous life or in a distant phase of the present life. However, the attachment is vestigial, no longer part of the vital script of the true present identity. Thus, connection is often unsustainable.


The material-social relationship may survive in skeleton form, while the spiritually conscious intent retreats into the nebulous status of dissociation from social-validation seeking ego-membrane.

Since both Shukra and Ketu are enemies of Surya who is karaka for ego-based identity, the usual outcome of Shukra-Ketu is retreat - at a material level *or* at a psycho-spiritual level -- from the ego-based identity that was maintained during the previous 18 years.

The spirit is no longer concerned with that portion of the Self definition which contained the socially legitimating tag "I am the partner of _________." One may heed the call of wandering winds. Life's "next step" may seem a bit foggy.

However, if the subsequent mahadasha pati Surya is strong, recovery from the listlessness of vaporous Ketu may be very quick.

Surya restores the ego-brilliance and pumps bright energy into the aura. Masculine, creative, confident, dramatic figures arrive to enact Ravi's script. Father and charismatic males have central roles.


Marriage + Wedding + Sacred Vows + Covenant + Ceremonial Agreement

Professor Ketu is teaching a curriculum that focuses upon topics of impermanence, severance, amputation, abandonment, wandering, windiness, dis-emburden-ment, and surrender. Naturally Ketu periods support psycho-spiritual opening of awareness and ego-dissolving projects.

The purpose of marriage is normally to establish a permanent and fruitful bond of mutual trust. Therefore marriage avowal during bhukti of Ketuva is rare and unusual. A marriage ceremony performed during Ketu bhukti may remain unconsummated. The spouse, or possibly the native, disappears either literally or figuratively; or the behavior of the spouse is exceptionally eccentric. Much depends on Ketu's ruler and upon any graha which may share a rashi with Professor Ketu.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin [GR age 17] 02-Feb-1886 married according to the customs of his non-literate peasant village. Rasputin's marriage provides Ketu-style open boundaries. Although Rasputin wandered the countryside as a faith-healer holding spiritual dances and prayer rituals, he maintained a promise to return home once per year. Every harvest season, GR returned. He labored in the fields alongside his people, and gave his wife numerous children on this pattern. A highly promiscuous wandering mystic [Ketu] during the rest of the year GR stayed in monasteries and in the homes of others while he conducted popular ecstatic piety cults [Ketu out-of-body] . Although socially irregular, his activities brought prosperity to his village. Despite his famed profligacy, GR and his wife never divorced. * Shukra-Ketu bhukti * Ketu-7 * samchara Rahu-Ketu via Simha-Kumbha contact navamsha R-K


Maraka Agency for Professor Ketu * Exit Opening for dematerialization

chidra-dasha ruled by Chidra-karaka * exit marks the End of an Era

When Professor Ketu is ruled by a graha which itself rules classroom-2 or classroom-7, Ketu becomes a potential marana-karaka. Maraka teachings include saturation of sense-experience [2] + balanced completion of the life contract [7] .

Professor Ketu also has, independent of His planetary ruler, the individual chidra-karaka agency of a beheader, cord-cutter, incisor, shredder, slicer, amputator, un-gluer, disconnector, disperser, pulverizer, nebulizer, dissolver of third-dimensional time-space coherent form.

Therefore, Ketu periods always carry the potential to scatter the material-world forms. Those left behind may perceive Ketu's molecular dispersal as a physical death.

Exit during this Shukra-Ketu bhukti typically provides awareness of the dissolution of form in context of persistence of spirit.
