The Story Line

Living Beautifully by Pema Chödrön, page 15

"When you practice staying present, one thing you’ll quickly discover is how persistent the story line is.

Traditionally, in the Buddhist texts, our tendencies with their habitual story lines are described as seeds in the unconscious.

When the right causes and conditions come together, these preexisting propensities pop up like flowers in the springtime.

It’s helpful to contemplate that it’s these propensities and not what triggers them that are the real cause of our suffering."

Boasting a lifetime abstinence from liquor, dancing, and any other waste of time, Polk also attended the Presbyterian * worth-ship * worship favored by his religiously devout wife and mother. However, his nichha-Guru-3 yuti nebulous Ketu shows the hypocrisy and materialism of his values.

Royalty and celebrity fame

The lord of Shukra's bhava- causes a bit of trouble in the natural bhava- of Surya.

One's own childhood would have been dominated by the nature of the family history, perhaps to the exclusion of other influences such as local schooling or community friendships.

If malefic, one's childhood environment may have been much constrained by the family culture.

Native gains social dignity (10) though children, politics, speculation, literary and performance arts.

Strong impulse to transmit the values of" family history" (bhava-2) onto one's own children. Romance with those who have similar values regarding money, history, and storage, to the family history.

  • If a second marriage is predicted, the romance leading to second marriage is very strong

  • this relationship = easy or difficult according to the value represented in bhava-2.

Children also have a strong sense of family culture, family speech patterns, family language, family aesthetic values. The nature of that family culture is defined by the actual graha that is L-2 along with any graha residing in bhava-2.

If no physical children, then the native will express one's lineage values through performance arts, political contests, and other expressions of individual intelligence and personal creativity.

L-2 in 5th-from-swakshetra gives accumulated wealth through lucky dealings with common/vulgar or negative people and materials. Appeals to vulgar interests.

Speaks in the language of outcastes and servants, about sensual experience (bhava-2) including food, touch, and visual values. Works hard for his money, but cleverly.

  • "95 Theses" Protestant Reformation 1483-1549 Martin Luther + Budha. Intelligence (5) evokes the rustic language (2) of the common people into a new religion based on vernacular speech (2) and local history (2).

If a malefic, dramatizes the concerns of the common people, with fortunate results according to the dignity of the graha.

Depending on the character of the malefic, may be a storyteller who uses images of money, food, and death or an entertainer who promotes traditional values of independence, hard work, and conservation of resources

L-2 = the agent who gathers collections and accumulates value. L-2 energizes wealth-building in health, finance, and service industries.

If benefic, dramatizes language or images to get attention. Dramatization becomes exploitation. Tells salacious stories or untruths; works with images of hair, face, and skin; May be a successful preacher, entertainer, publisher or politician who caters to an outcaste audience. ( Hugh Hefner .)

Speculative investment of group or family monies. Romantic love between family members, incest. Wealth gained through exploitive speculative investment schemes and sordid transactions. Medical problem-sets with tongue, teeth, mouth, hair, and face.

L-2 in 4th-from-swakshetra

Auspicious financially.

One capitalizes (2) upon the basis of performance art, theatrical production and ceremonies, games, politics, literary creativity, genius, capacity to channel divine intelligence, speculation-gambling, autobiographical literature, and most of all children.

Das commentary :

IF the lord of the 2 is in 5,

and the lord of the 2 has at least one beneficial placement attribute.

"You will be blessed with the acquisition of wealth

through children,

great men,


and monasteries."

L-2 in 5th -from-swakshetra = the family of origin = financially privileged and creative

One capitalizes upon the basis of mother's relatives, servants and servitude, problem-sets that seem structural, problem-sets that are difficult to solve, engaging in conflict, conflict in human relationships, broken contracts, and illness.

Generally, family is characterized by illness of various types, and the relationship with family may be contentious. This broad principle becomes especially strong when Chandra rules kutumbha-bhava-2, so that the mother's illness or addiction defines the family bond.

  • "Lipstick" 1955-1996 Margaux Hemingway, an Arudra native, had L-2 Chandra in Vrischika-6. She suffered an emotionally criticizing family environment due to her dyslexia and epilepsy compounded by numerous family stressors including pervasive bipolar condition. Her mother was long ill with cancer, and after her mother's death her father remarried a woman hostile to Margaux. Both mother Chandra and stepmother 8th-from-Chandra containing Ketu are afflicted.

If L-2 is dignified, can give a successful career in cosmetic dentistry, private-loan banking, creative applications of art and music toward conflict resolution.

One may be a spokesperson or the"voice" (2) of the exploited-or-exploiters or polluted-or-polluters, including as a representative of disenfranchised environmental beings

Associated with"problem-sets "

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Albert Einstein = problem-sets that are difficult to solve; his family of origin = moderately financially privileged merchants


Matters of speech or song (2) may become scandalous or even criminalized.

However L-2 in the bhagya 5th-from swakshetra predicts that one's intelligence will ultimately be recognized.

  • "Violet Flame" 1939-2009 Elizabeth Clare Prophet was consistently criticized for fabricating clairsentient cult messages during the rise and fall of her cult. With Rahu in bhava-2 these "expedient speakings" produced a thrilling (Rahu) amount of wealth

Currency speculation, food speculation, money-lending, gambling upon the value of a hoard

One may eat, drink or smoke toxic substances which contribute to injury or disease

-- BPHS Ch. 24, shloka 18

dhanapathi-2 occupies the awkward 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle 8th-from-2nd

The concerns of yoking yoga yuvati-bhava-7 include the pairing-comparison-parity matters of balance, equity, marriage, alliance, contracts, agreements, matches, mating, equality, partnership and justice, inter alia

The ruler of bhava-2 mouth and speech is a verbalizer. Thus L-2 in 7 increases the verbosity of negotiations seeking equity, shared value

  • Egypt-King 1920-1965 Farouk al-Awwal * parivartamsha L-7 Shani-2 = constantly negotiating with the British colonial overlords of Egypt

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King + Budha

However 7 is stationed in the ashtakya 6/8 from dhanasthana-2. Speech may be impacted by the characteristics of the L-2. There is typically a pattern of discussing money and historic values (2) which are involved in disagreement, divorce, or unfair contracts (7 as 6th-from). Attorneys and advocates for exploited parties may benefit from this yoga.

If the L-2 is weakened, speech may be incomplete or clipped. If the L-2 is strengthened, bargaining on difficult (6) topics may be improved.

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King * Surya-Makara+ Budha. A famed advocate for victims of injustice, he spoke clearly but faced extraordinary hostility (6). Surya-Maraka-7 is weakened in the hostile rashi of Surya's enemy Shani ; but Surya benefits from yuti-Budha.

  • "O" multimedia Oprah Winfrey* Guru-Vrishabha-7. A famed promoter of justice for the victimized classes and icon of charitable generosity (Gifting Guru). Ms. Winfrey has a warmly inclusive and jovial speech style. Yet the scale of Guru's material largesse barely affects the scale of the problems (6). Guru is weakened in the rashi of enemy Shukra.

  • POTUS-42"My Life" Bill Clinton * Shani-Simha-7+ Budha. Mr. Clinton served for decades (Shani) as an inspiring and skillful leader of numerous governments and NGOs. However he had a career-plaguing problem with bhava-2 that manifested in outright lying. L-2 Shani is strengthened in bhava-7 but compromised in the hostile rashi of Simha; yuti-Budha L-6 and L-9 is not really helpful, and he came very close to being impeached for lying. Notably, his enduring (Shani) wife and colleague has always assisted his lying behaviors.

Agents of capitalization (2) enter the yuvati-bhava. Marriage is motivated by wealth-acquisition.

Wealth + knowledge obtained via the partner, terms of contract, various alliances and business partnerships.

Wealth = contained within conflicted, exploitive alliances = dhanakaraka

L-2 speech-knowledge treasuries born into bhava- 8

The face, eyes, hair, voice may serve with agency of upheaval and transformation

Stemming from a motivation within the family of origin (2), speech (2) may be camouflaged with false coverage. I.e., the native fabricates information, embroiders the truth, substitutes various versions of the truth, or flat-out lies.

  • Lies and cover-ups in the interest of relationship management.

  • Lies and cover-ups in the interest of preserving a preferred interpretation of history (2).

  • Lies and cover-ups to facilitate the continuation of a relationship with the deceased, or with one whose psycho-mental illness has left only the annamayakosha shell.

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Elizabeth-1 used an oily, lead-based (Shani8) cosmetic cover to hide the smallpox cavities on her face.

Hidden knowledge and wealth; secrets; transformative and catastrophic change; deep healing, surgery, tantra

Graha born into randhra bhava = subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8).

Damages (8) the family lineage (2) unless L-2 is otherwise capable of resisting the sudden turnings of the cycle of death and rebirth which occur in the openings-aperture-sthana.

  • "Sherlock Holmes " crime-writer Arthur Conan-Doyle lost a beloved son to the vicious warfare of WorldWar-1. In his unassailable grief, Conan Doyle turned to the highly popular spiritualism movement looking for a method to maintain communication with his desperately missed son. Building on his credibility as a popular author and political essayist, C-Doyle delivered speeches claiming that séance was a materially (Shani) effective method. Perhaps he got what he wanted - assurance that his son was living in spirit and at peace - but material facts as he claimed them could not be substantiated.

* especially severe churning of family lineage when L-2 in 8 typically early upheavals to foundations of life

The speed of change-of-form is often terrifying. Matters of the bhava-s ruled by graha in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, re-cycling, identity-destroying and regenerating hidden life force.

Effects of graha in 8 are frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing.

Second marriage partner may be "hidden". Possibility of two families, mutually unknown to each other.

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 Arthur Conan-Doyle= L-2 Shukra attraction parivartamsha L-8 Kuja hidden physical energy

  • more than a decade before his first wife died, C-D fell profoundly in love with the woman who would become his second wife. Their love was intense and absolute; and neither would abandon the union despite extremely trying circumstances.

  • His first wife, with whom he had enjoyed a fairly pleasant early life and family, suffered from kidney disease and was expected to die shortly. In fact, she lived for another 10 years.

  • Conan-Doyle and Jeanne continued their relationship covertly, sharing the truth of their love even with Conan-Doyle's mother and their mutual friends, yet taking great care not to hurt his reclusive, frail first wife. The first wife never found out. Immediately upon her death, Conan-Doyle and Jean were married instantly and three children quickly born.

L-2 in 7th-from-swakshetra = wealth is held by disguised, camouflaged silent, hidden partners

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution George Washington - American revolutionary war military general

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy born into a very financially privileged family. Noted figure of liberal-progressive advancement for the working classes

One capitalizes upon the treasury of knowledge and jewels. Delivers lovely speech and song, upon the basis of the father, religion, priesthood, and higher wisdom.

Narrative story-telling of sthana-2 enters the realm of philosophy, world travels, religion bhava-9. Talks about religion.

Ruler of Financial Wealth (2) resides in dharmabhava-9 may produce wealth from religious-doctrinal sources. However L-2 occupies 8th-from-2nd suggesting that a sudden and unexpected transformation, often forceful, must accompany the regeneration (8) of wealth in a new form.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor had L-2 Shukra yuti Ketu in bhava-9. Ketu liberated His Majesty from the bondage of religious doctrine, and provided him the freedom to do the unthinkable (Ketu). Henry obtained a sudden "eruption" (8th-from) of financial wealth via English appropriation of the extensive land holdings of the Roman Catholic monasteries and cathedrals. The transformation created a terrible shock for pious believing peasants. Yet from the perspective by Rome-hating Protestant supporters, Henry's 'disrespectful' (Ketu) action was seen as a brilliantly aggressive move to restore the English economy .

One's mother (Chandra) and indeed oneself may be a proselyte, priest, preacher or professor (9).

  • Iran-Shah 1919-1980 Mohamed Reza Pahlavi attempted radical reforms of Iranian society, albeit he did not recover well enough to resume a guidance role with a post-revolutionary identity

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien was a deeply religious personality, strongly grounded in the familiar rhythms of his Roman Catholic faith. Chandra yuti kendra-adhi-pathi Guru = grounding. His mother was a devoted convert to Roman Catholicism. After the split caused by her ideological conversion, Mother's Baptist family (Chandra L-2 family) disowned her, despite her severe diabetes.

Pema Chodron

"You can do this anytime you eat a meal.
  1. Before taking the first bite, just pause and think of those men and women of wisdom and mentally offer them your food. In this way, you connect with the virtue of devotion.
  2. Before taking the second bite, pause and offer your food to all those who've been kind to you. This nurtures the virtues of gratitude and appreciation.
  3. The third bite is offered to those who are suffering: all the people and animals who are starving, or being tortured or neglected, without comfort or friends. Think, too, of all of us who suffer from aggression, craving, and indifference. This simple gesture awakens the virtue of compassion.

In this way, by relying on our teachers, our benefactors, and those in need, we gather the virtues of devotion, gratitude, and kindness."
