Their sense of beauty however is may not always match the public standard. Rather one values what the lineage-family practiced aesthetically while one was growing up. The nature of this beauty norm will appear in the graha itself.

  • E.g., if the graha happens to be a strong Shukra, the beauty norm will be quite refined, and one will enjoy family wealth, lineage art and music talent etc.

By contrast a nichha-Guru, without correction from other beneficial support, might create too many children in poverty and disorder... or somehow Guru's expansion and abundance becomes aesthetically dysfunctional.

The father was a university professor and theorist of literature. Although both father and son were admired by many during their luminous careers, the son would have felt overwhelmed by the father's scholarship if he had stayed at home or followed his father's line of business. Thus the son transformed himself and chose the path of theatre as his own expression of the gift of lagnesha uttama-Guru-8.

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-6 Makara

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-6

lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-6 * urge to argue, exploit, medicate

lagnesha = Budha in bhava-6 * ailments of the hands, arms, lungs

lagnesha = Guru in bhava-6 * multiple service ministries * many health issues

lagnesha = Shukra in bhava-6 * pleasure in service; addictions

lagnesha = Shani in bhava-6 * chronic illness

Lagnesha in Bhava 6 = personal health issues (often of a chronic nature). Social or professional identification with:

social conflict, illness, addiction, and pollution; poverty and usury, exploitation and servitude

Personality-identified with the narrative of illness, poverty, servitude, and interpersonal conflict.

Splendid placement for those offering a ministry of service in environments that manifest experiences of poverty, conflict, unemployment, war, enemies, toxicity, pollution, debt, and disease.

Special abilities and skills emerge from a natural affinity with servitude, exploitation, and inability to achieve agreement. Repeated encounters and persistent connection with entities that cannot agree with each other (war, 6) or individuals who cannot agree with society (crime, 6).

Dignified papagraha in bhava-6 may support a praiseworthy social success in one of the conflict-management professions such as military, law, finance, social-work, or medicine.

If lagnesha-in-6 has benefic qualities (Shukra, Guru, or ruler of a pleasure bhava) lagnesha-in-6 may tend toward pleasurable identification with the victim narrative - both its litany of accusations and its medical, legal, or financial problem-sets.

A neutral lagnesha such as Budha will cause both.

lagnesha-in-6 feels most natural and comfortable in the medical clinic, the social welfare counseling office, the divorce court, or the police station. one is beautifully suited to the medical profession if evolved.


As always with graha in bhava-6, best results from those graha which produce good effects in matters of controversy, dealing with enemies, war, pollution, arguments, disease, poverty, disagreement, and other species of imbalance.

Shani-6, Mangala-6, and Rahu-6 all generally produce favorable results, albeit Shani takes a long time to win His battles as His method is not active but rather via Endurance.

Other graha in 6 tend to produce physical health challenges for the native along with an orientation to the health-care or service professions. However the ultimate determiner of profession rules 10th navamsha and that lord's role in radix.

Whether one chooses a profession in the human services ministry (the best choice) or becomes a patient-victim who receives those compassionate ministrations, often there aresignificant physical health issues associated with the lagnesha .

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-6

lagnesha Chandra in bhava-6 = Chandra in Dhanushya

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla obsessive-compulsive disorder

lagnesha Guru in bhava-6 * many service ministries; numerous health issues *

  • Russ 1870-1924 Proletarian Revolution Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin suffered skin diseases, injuries, digestive ailments, stoutness despite physical discipline (Shani in lagna) plus several debilitating strokes toward the end of his life. However typical of graha in 6 these were chronic issues and not deadly. He was killed by poisoning due to Rahu-8

lagnesha Shukra in bhava-6 * pleasure in service; sweet false-balancing addictions *

lagnesha Shani in bhava-6 = professional capacity for public-discourse argumentation (Shani-6)"problematization" (not resolution) of exploitation, social conflict, war, poverty, disease or pollution over a long period of time

  • A New Earth 1948- spiritual explainer Eckhart Tolle

  • POTUS-28 The State Woodrow Wilson

  • POTUS-pair-13 Abigail Powers Fillmore suffered a lifetime of chronic ailments, dying immediately after her husband's presidency her age 53. In younger years, via her influence correspondence with many leaders, she produced a vitally important voice in the argument for a *lawful* if dangerous war of resistance against the oppressive, unfair British exploiters.

one identifies (lagnesha) with domains of acute imbalance , such as medical clinics, battlefields, police and military, criminal attorney's office, money-lender and debt collection, poorhouse, bankruptcy court, social welfare agency.

Flourishes in roles such as military agent , medical practitioner, or minister of service to the unbalanced populations. Identified with scenes of disease, injury, conflict and accusation.

If the lagnesha is damaged in bhava-6, one may become moralistic, judgmental, accusing, or vindictive. However a well-supported lagnesha in bhava-6 indicates a natural minister (helper) such as a physician, problem analyst, counselor of victims and aider of the dispossessed.

Often concerned with processes for rectifying social ills. One feels "appropriate" when using definitions of moral error from bodies of argumentation and advice such as religious scripture or government law.

When punitive graha such as Shani are the lagnesha, may be a wonderful fire-and-brimstone preacher. Deeply identified with "sin" or imbalance, and its vigorous correction.

Believes that one is called to be a"role model for correctly argued and regulated living."

Physically and socially identified with medicines , drugs, poisons, illness, poverty , finance + Loan-making, social work and family conflict, accusations and blaming, criminals and and crime, victimization, outsiders + Low class, exploitation and animosity .

  • If the graha has other positive association, may suit a professional in conflict management such as physician, attorney, police officer, or judge.

  • If the lagnesha is a dignified planet, gifted advocate for victims in the practice of law and medicine.

Favorable lagnesha in bhava-6 makes a conflict management professional such as physician, criminal or divorce attorney, police officer, social worker , or judge.

Naturally suited to an environment that emphasizes service to the exploited and disadvantaged, health, debts, accusations, argument-litigation, grievances.

From B.V. Raman's 300 Important Combinations:

Deha-kashta" difficulty for the body"

  • deha = to plaster, mould, fashion) the body; to support the body

  • kaSTa = bad; ill, evil, wrong; painful; grievous, severe, miserable; difficult, troublesome ah! woe! alas!

"110. Deha-kashta Yoga


the Lord of Lagna must join a malefic or occupy the 8th house.


The subject will be devoid of bodily comforts.


...Most of the manual workers belong to this category. The Yoga is said to become defunct if a benefic aspects the ascendant lord."

Das commentary:

if The lord of the 1 conjoins a malefic planet

or the lord of the 1 is in 8, and is not the lord of the 1 is aspected by a benefic,

and is not the lord of the 1 conjoins a benefic."

"The Ascendant Lord, who represents the body in the chart, is located in the difficult eighth house or conjoins a malefic devoid of any benefic aspect.

  • This means that, especially in early life, you will be unable to find bodily comfort easily.

  • Throughout life also, there may be a feeling that the simple pleasures of life, such as peace and physical comfort, are difficult to achieve.

This can be caused, for example, by a continuing, difficult to shake, negative physical feeling or condition."

Leadership, Respect

  • Helps to secure a respectable public reputation and dignified leadership roles

  • One is socially respected, regardless of the job function

  • socially normal and orderly behavior is attributed to the personality. Any irregularity or scandal will 'normally' be overcome

Generally the parents are persons of respect and reputation themselves.

  • UK-Prince 1948- environmentalist Charles Windsor

  • 49th Nizari Ismaili Imam, 1936-, Agha Khan-4 Karim al-Husseini + Budha-yuti-Rahu * his parents were public figures. His mother was a British aristocrat and his father was the heir apparent (although not heir real) to the Agha Khan position

Splendid placement for agents of any variety of systematic connectivity: electrical, financial, water pipes, oil pipes, customer sales, social, conceptual, scientific, philosophical, ideological, material, familial, etc.

  • POTUS-21 Civil Service Chester A. Arthur * lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-11 + Surya yuti Rahu. Arthur made a lifestyle from social-networking of political "machine" relationships encompassing work-hours and after-work hours. The system was driven (Kuja) by patronage kickbacks and favoritism (Surya). Within this network, he was able to combine criminal economics rogesha-6 Kuja-11 and personal identity via Mangala lagnesha. Mangala yuti Rahu contains an element of inventive surprise. Just before the end of his presidency, Arthur surprised everyone by opportunistically (Rahu) implementing reform in the earnings system (11) of federal patronage jobs. True to Rahu, Arthur realized that he was finished with government service, and he acted both swiftly and cleverly to execute what conventional-thinking others had been unable to accomplish.

May be a skilled genealogist or social historian due to gift for finding the links between items and ideas.

  • Twilight of the Idols 1844-1900 Friedrich Nietzsche was able to establish compelling linkage between the categorical ideations of ancient cultures e.g. Ave-sthana * Avestan * and modern German aesthetic discourse.

Comfortable and successful in commercial and community organizations, in large social groups and assemblies, at "fund-raisers ", and in the marketplace of goods and ideas.

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams * tireless community networker, engaged in large-scale missionary outreach, friendly

  • POTUS-pair-04 hostess Dolley Madison + Shukra * legendary networker and social entertainer who promoted several progressive causes including the then-endangered right freedom of religion. Her homes were usually open to guests, sometimes large numbers of them Budha also L-4 and Guru-4

Wants to be in the marketplace, creating new markets and opportunities through regular and reliable links, making a profit, in large social organizations, in associations and networks, making connections between people and ideas, going to parties, organizing events.

Surya in bhava-11 * personal engagement with political or entertainment career focused upon economics (11) or community development (11) personal engagement with social networking, fundraising, large-scale entertainment (Surya) events. personal engagement with global politics, theatre of philosophical explication

empowered charismatic idealism in economically profitable roles actively engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social movement

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Benazir Bhutto * multiple election cycles

Guru in bhava-11 * personal engagement with large-scale humanitarian undertakings, generosity of spirit in community-participation networks * empowered philosophical expansion in economically profitable roles actively engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social movement

Shukra in bhava-11 * large-scale negotiation, deal-making, bargaining, brokering; also decorating, arranging, or matching-making professions * empowered negotiation and arbitration in economically profitable roles actively engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social movement

Shani in bhava-11 * personal engagement with extensive social networking necessary to establish effective governance and maintain economic connections. Mandatory relationship with earnings systems. ** empowered duties and obligation in economically profitable roles lawfully engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social movement

Depending on condition in bhava-4, lagnesha in labhasthana may signify the influence of a Step-mother (8th-from-4th).

  • After the tragically premature death of his mother (his age 9) and his father's sudden remarriage (his age 10) POTUS-16 Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln formed a successful life bond with his stepmother. Firstly, Ketu occupies his bhava-4 signifying a dissolution of the bond with the bio-mother and her place. Secondly, Lincoln's vriddhi-bhava-11 (8th-from-4th = stepmother) contains his lagnesha Shani. Furthermore, 8th-from-Chandra-12 = bhava-7 advising relationships. Lincoln's stepmother became a trusted advisor who promoted his legal career. Abe later credited his stepmother with giving him the support and the will to succeed.

Notably connective and opportunistic in attitude, one seeks to mix with people of all marketplace participant groups and create strategic relationships between large assemblies.

Identifies easily with the common human, the hoi-polloi, the masses.

Exceptionally goal oriented

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Benazir Bhutto enjoyed a powerful parivartamsha yoga engaging Chandra-1 identity with Budha-11 goals and achievements. Against all statistical improbability -- after imprisonments, threats to life, and an onslaught of accusations -- she was able to take command of her country twice. Chandra is imprisoned (literally) in an absolute nishturabashi yoga at the exact same degree as Shani. The karmic cost of striving for leadership was massive. But it did happen! A young, idealistic, western-educated *woman* did rise to top governance roles in Pakistan.

Identified with large distributive networks (11) which bear their name and likeness (1).

Feels appropriate as a purveyor of commodities or shared ideas.

A scientific actor who marshals resources then systematically distributes the goods.

If lagnesha is amplified by Rahu here, likes pyramid schemes and home-selling networks; can promote these with missionary zeal. Believes he is engaged in generating"equality, opportunity, and full enfranchisement for everyman" (whilst of course earning his own commission.) If lagnesha is severely damaged can deal profitably in evil, such as prostitution or drugs.

One may be physically and socially identified with large groups and assemblies, networks of associations , networks of ideas and electronic signals, connectivity on every level.

  • Recognized for ability to coordinate and distribute resources on a large and well-ordered scale.

  • Recognized for ability to regulate economic marketplace activities and for gainfulness.

  • Often widely known and usually socially active.

Naturally suited to an environment that emphasizessocial activism And community development , achieving goals and objectives, fund-raising, interconnectivity of people and devices, marketplace activities and their gainfulness, and large parties or gatherings such as fayre or mela.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace Jimmy Carter = a man of the people, concerned and connected to distribute large-scale, regulated system-participatory opportunity via networks of charitable (L-11 in 12) and political association (11 = Simha)

one is happy when moving from large event to large event.

  • One may take a directing role but one may just as easily mix with the crowd.


Chapter 24 shloka 11

lagneśe lābhage jātaḥ sadā lābhasamanvitaḥ |

suśīlaḥ khyātakīrtiśca bahudāraguṇairyutaḥ || 11||

When Lagnesha is born into Labha Bhava (lagneśe lābhage jātaḥ)

one realizes gains (sadā lābha-saman-vitaḥ)

is well-connected (suśīlaḥ)

is well-known and often mentioned (khyāta-kīrtiśca)

has numerous wives and good things (bahu-dāra-guna-iryutaḥ). [Pijan]

  • one will be endowed with paternal happiness, royal honor (or patronage),

fame among men and will doubtlessly have self-earned wealth."

Public Figures

lagnesha = Surya in bhava-12

lagnesha = Chandra in bhava-12

lagnesha = Mangala in bhava-12 * urge to retreat, dream, imagine

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome Warren G. Harding + Budha + uttama-Shani + nichha-Surya

  • USA-Gov-FL 1953- Jeb Bush + uttama-Shukra * parivartamsha L-12 Guru-1

lagnesha = Budha in bhava-12

lagnesha = Guru in bhava-12 * many meditations, much guidance

lagnesha = Shukra in bhava-12

lagnesha = Shani in bhava-12

Lagnesha in Bhava 12 = social identification with:

  • visionary imagination, prayer and spiritual guidance, private bedroom, hospital and hotel, meditative spiritual retreat, divination, distant lands


This native feels most natural and comfortable in his own imagination, in the liminal space between life and death.

Also one feels identified with the geography and behaviors distant lands . Often an internationalized individual who feels equally comfortable in the homeland and abroad.

one has a strong social identification with private, sequestered locationsand foreign lands,which trait will emerge most vividly during the Vimshottari mahadasha period of the lagnesha.

Wants to be in an enclosed, sanctuary space: bedroom, dormitory, attic, a spa, ashram, hospital, monastery - or prison, concentration camp, survivalist compound - any walled enclosure.

Wants very high levels of privacy in all undertakings, both personal and professional. If other graha will bring one into high profile public life, the lagnesha in 12 says that this native's creative process, decision-making, and core relationships are conducted in a very private space preliminary to one's appearance on the world stage.

Likes the peaceful courtyard, the ordered space of the meditation hall, the interior compound, the super-private meeting room.

Socially identified with the domain of subconscious imagery, fantasy, dreams, and out-of-body creativity.

If lagnesha is strong, one can be a dramatic articulator of the collective imagination.

If Mangala, competitive and physicalized in bedroom and distant lands

If Surya gains celebrity strength one may be a wonderful entertainer and brilliant or iconic genius.

If Shukra is involved, may be a seductive tempter-temptress into a world of forbidden, private delights.

In a generally sensualized nativity, one may be characteristically inclined toward "bed pleasures " when lagnesha occupies bhava-12.

On the other hand, in a reserved and contemplative nativity, one may crave religious retreat in a cloistered sanctuary with as little visibility as possible

  • Tantra 1931-1990 professor OSHO Rajneesh + Chandra + Budha + Shukra + Mangala * regularly punctuated his teaching mission with multi-year retreats

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva + Surya + Chandra * parivartamsha L-12 Guru-1 * regularly punctuated his teaching mission with multi-year retreats

  • Pope John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla + Budha-yuti-Ketu

Naturally, bhava-12 being 6th-from-7th, the unboundaried activities in this house are known for their animosity toward the boundaried contract of marriage.

Yet one rarely achieves emotional intimacy of genuinely shared partnership, due to being so identified with the world inside one's own head.

One feels appropriately engaged during long sojourns in foreign countries , where one acts out a dream-persona of foreign cultural behaviors.

  • God's Dream 1931- Anglican Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu a South African native, spent decades in England, serving the Anglican Christian church. Eventually he returned to his homeland, but still travelled extensively.

One believes that one is "making dreams come true" in exemplary fantastic , imaginative living.

One may be physically and socially identified with events which constitute a loss of personal identity, merging into the collective unconscious or the corporate mind, espionage, foreign lands, meditation, art studios, illusions, research laboratories, prisons and camps, sanctuary and enclosure.

Alternatively, especially with a strong legal-punitive Shani, one is identified with social structures, survival fears, and laws of distant lands

A private person, but one may nevertheless be responsible for managing essential world energies. Can be either prayerful or deranged or both.

Not inclined toward seeking public recognition unless there are other, highly dynamic, graha in lagna.

Physically and socially identified with 'loss of identity' , espionage, foreign lands, meditation, art studios, illusions, research laboratories, prisons and camps, sanctuary and enclosure.

Naturally suited to an environment that emphasizes undercover work , back-room deals, espionage, sanctuary life such as ashram or monastery, convalescence and retirement, private imagination,living in foreign lands , and recovery of past-life identity.

When Lagnesha occupies Vyaya Bhava (lagneśe vyaya-bhāvasthe)

comfort of the body may be diminished (deha-saukhya-vivar-jitaḥ)

experience the absence of meaning (vyartha-vyayī)

be capable of great anger (mahā-krodhī)

yet these outcomes occur only when the 12th bhava lacks favorable yoga or drishti (śubha-drig-yoga-varjite). [Pijan]

"Good life in general, wealth, intelligence.
