Physical Method of Crafting Agreements

L-7 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke L-7 in Bhava-1

Auspicious and identity-enhancing position+ L-7 in 7th-from-swakshetra.

Identified with Bargains, deals, agreements, contracts, negotiations, seeking balance, alliances made to promote mutual interest, marriage, partnership, union

A bargainer, negotiator, agreement-seeker.

Marital-partner and business-partners build one 's capacity for iconic and symbolic body-image representation. Developing the charisma of the psycho-physical appearance is the most important result of contractual partnership.

  • partnerships of "A New Earth" spiritual adviser 1948- Eckhart Tolle served to promote his image into a successful spiritual- marketplace brand. His marital partner whilst enjoying her own independent operations (Surya-L-7) also complements and reinforces his vitality-image. His L-10 Mangala-7 = 10th-from-10th = public dignity vigorously (Kuja) supported by advocates, partners, advisers.

the social identity is deeply invested in being yoked = holding attribute of "in-contract" status.

self-definition = one is a coupled person, a properly contracted person, and a socially balanced person, a promise-keeper.

No matter the degree of conflict or incompatibility, divorce is often too high a price to pay for this native because one is deeply identified with the "married" status-attribute.

  • The much-awarded dramatist "Sophie's Choice" Meryl Streep has been married to her first husband for decades.

  • real-estate magnate, television entertainer Donald Trump = a remarkable broker = nevertheless afflicted by his emotionally reactive nichha Jyestha Chandra yuti Ketu . Nevertheless, he has promptly remarried after each divorce and remains publically allied with his first wife Ivana.

  • "Old Time Feeling" balladeer, dramatist June Carter Cash was married three times, with the first 2 marriages afflicted by her Ketu-7 and L-6 Budha in 2. Her autobiography reports that she "dedicated herself entirely" to her third marriage. Karakamsha-7 = she became known most widely as "Johnny Cash's wife" = a identity that she reportedly cherished.

One's choices in life are much determined by the spouse and the spouse's character. If the spouse is caring and dignified, one 's own uncertainties are much reduced.


"I am my contracts and promises, my diplomacy and deal-making, my alliances and unions."

  • "Lipstick" dramatist, fashion model Margaux Hemingway received, when she was still a teenager, a celebrated million-dollar modeling contract to represent a prestige cosmetics line. Having only a rudimentary education due to dyslexia that prevented her from reading, she could expect a rather vague future. Yet during Shukra-Rahu period with natal Rahu-Shukra in 7-contracts, her L-7 in lagna provided modeling and drama contracts that literally created her iconic identity. Her manager negotiated splendid payments for her. Naturally with L-7 in lagna, she married him.

Partnership: marriage, sexual partner, business partner, contracts, agreements, loyalty, relationships,

brokering, consulting, advising.

one is deeply identified with their role as a marriage and business partner.

Social identity = infused with the qualities of balance, mutual appreciation, negotiation, collaboration, arbitration, law courts, fairness, due process."


Specifically for L-7 Chandra-3:

good placement for a caring, parental-style business manager. Success in short-term planning, scheduling, writing, frequent travel, project management, training tasks. Many advising and consulting relationships.

radix yuvati-pathi Chandra contributes a portion of the profile of the mate. L-7 in 9th from 7th suggests that one's spouse will be philosophical, ritually religious, and fortunate overall

however the mentalization of the emotions due to Budha's influence upon Chandra can lead to chronic reactivity and worrying. The mate will need to learn to relax his busy mind.

Verbal Method of Crafting Agreements

Bhava-2 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke


L-7 in 8th-from-swakshetra = Destruction-and-rebirth of agreements, arrangements, matches, contracts -- esp the marriage contract.

A fast cycle of death-and-rebirth affects all promises, contracts, trusts.


Presuming that L-7 is favorable for matters of pleasures, harmonious design, and equitable contract, the second marriage is generally much easier.

One may perceive that while the first marriage had a known purpose, it is indeed that the second marriage which is more satisfyingly balanced.

  • sitar master musician Ravi Shankar had a difficult first marriage but an easier second marriage. He also enjoys uttama-Guru in bhava-3, suggesting an abundance of second-after-second partnerships.

  • Due to very difficult drishti upon yuvati bhava "Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle" writer Alice Bailey endured a harshly abusive first marriage. Yet her second marriage = much aided by a marriage-friendly L-7 Vrishabha Shukra-2 = was entirely satisfactory, supportive, and well balanced.

Spouse builds one 's capacity for treasure-acquisitions. Developing the historic bloodline or cultural lineage of both wealth and knowledge may be the most important outcome of marriage.

Problematic for the first marriage unless compensation.

  • USA Pres-37 partner, Mrs. Pat Nixon = L-7 Chandra in 2 + Shukra. Her husband USA Pres-37 (resigned) Richard Nixon's Makara-Chandra matches her Makara lagna. They were very close until his Budha mahadasha started and utterly monogamous throughout the incarnations.

The spouse may be psychologically complex (8) with mysterious dealings (8).

  • partner of USA-Pres-37, Mrs. Pat Nixon

  • partner of UK-Princess, humanitarian Diana Spencer = environmentalist UK-Prince Charles Windsor

  • USA Pres-35 John F. Kennedy was married to a complex spouse, and seemed often to turn the cycle of birth and death in matters of the marriage contract

  • Jane Appleton Pierce, the wife of USA Pres-14, Mex-Amer War Gen. Franklin Pierce + nichha-Shukra was an enigma to most of Pierce's colleagues; she was quite forthright about her dislike of politics and she was a strong advocate of National Temperance (which would eventually become Prohibition) even while her husband was a fatally heavy drinker

Similar to the "virtual widowhood" of L-7 in bhava-8.

It is as if the spouse is married to the greater world, and not to a human partner.

Spouse is concerned with the zeitgeist, performing on the stage of history, wealth-building, huge movements of social values change, and major turnings of the cycle of birth and death.

The spouse is self-identified as a public agent of transformative change.

Most of the relationship energy is diverted into developing the spouse's own role upon the world stage. As a result, one is ignored. Indeed one may feel quite unworthy of requesting the spouse's interest, since to do so would distract them from the greater matters which demand their attention..

As a result of the spouse's energy being largely consumed with giant transformative forces (8) one may not get the marital attention one requires.

one 's simple need for companionship gets somewhat left behind in the partner's concern with larger social issues, and unless one is willing to sacrifice one's own life in the process, marital infidelity can easily result.

Potential for a hidden (8th from) supplemental companion, and the companion is also married.

  • environmentalist UK-Prince Charles Windsor

  • USA Pres-15 James Buchanan was an antebellum-era (1830-1860) gay man whose primary liaisons were tastefully disguised (Also Rahu-Thula-8). Buchanan's primary partner, a senator from Alabama, ended their relationship after the senator was posted on diplomatic assignment to Paris. Budha L-7 yuti Ketu + Mangala + Surya suggests that secondary contracts may have been diverse but short-lived.


L-7 in bhava-2 may signify a second marriage which is better aligned with one 's deeper life needs than the first.

The second marriage typically fulfills one 's positive expectations of spousal love and commitment.

  • "The Wasteland" poet, publisher T.S. Eliot wrote and published his own work throughout life, published many of his friends, and won the 1948 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Auspicious and guidance-providing position, L-7 in 9th-from-swakshetra.

  • Steel industrialist, evangelist of Capitalism Andrew Carnegie = L-7 uttama-Shani + Budha in bhava-3. In addition to managing (3) the world's largest corporations (of their times)  Carnegie wrote constantly throughout his life. His output included several best-selling inspirational social-economic narratives (Shani rules Kumbha-7, economics; Budha L-11 marketplace). His statistical "facts" were however adjusted to suit the aim of his message; indeed most were drawn from the world of fantasy = Budha rules 12th-from-3rd. Uttaraphalguni-1 = unbridled confidence in one's own beliefs; indeed as Carnegie's own brother complained 'Andra" believed himself nearly infallible. And so, it turned out, did many of his worshipful readers.

Spouse builds one 's capacity for producing publications and announcements. Communications skills development and media-management are significant benefits of marriage.

Mate may be in charge of the marital money; stronger when L-7 = benefic. Spouse is organized and administratively minded.

Partner takes a sibling attitude toward the marriage partnership, and is helpful in the style indicated by the nature of the graha which is L-7.

  • L-7 Mangala + Rahu defines both first and second husbands for Thula lagna = German Bundeskanzlerin 2005- Angela Merkel. Her husbands are both independent, masculine university scientists (Dhanushya, 9th-from-7th) who do not follow the subordinate-spouse model of the political mate (Rahu)

Spouse brings assets into the marriage, either social or financial or both.

  • Flossie Harding the wife of USA Pres-29 Warren G. Harding brought her higher social connections into the marriage, managed their joint personal and commercial finances, built his newspaper business circulation and reputation, scheduled his travel, and promoted his career all the way from a small town in Ohio to the White House in Washington D.C. She was widely recognized as "the brains of the operation". She gave well-arranged parties, wrote his presidential speeches and decided his domestic policy. Her power arose via President Harding's uttama-Shani L-7 in 3 + Kuja + Surya + Budha with Budha in parivartamsha + Shukra. (however his nichha-Shukra yuti Rahu in 8th-from-7th did not stop his hidden affair-du-coeur with her best friend...)

  • the wife of "Jungle Book" fiction writer Rudyard Kipling was the sister of his best friend and literary publisher. The publisher actively promoted Kipling's works and Kipling's wife arranged their life in detail so that he could continue to write.

One enjoys a tolerance for constant short-term travel and occasional loss of the one's home through professional relocation (bhava-3) or a lifestyle of shifting between several homes

  • "The Mirror" theosophy Jiddhu Krishnamurti traveled around the world annually on a regular speaking schedule

  • In an era of dirt roads and isolated villages, USA Sen-LA, Gov 1928-1935 Huey Kingfish Long traveled constantly within rural Louisiana State drumming up discussion (3), registering voters (3) and explaining his policies and plans (3).

  • USA Pres-41 George H.W. Bush commuted (3) between Texas, Maine, and Washington DC during his entire adult career. During five decades of public service, his wife (7) handled (3) much of his correspondence (Budha-3).

  • "Moonies" Unification Church, Rev. Sun Myung Moon travelled constantly between his business interests in USA and Korea, and later many more locales, pursuing a steady schedule of worldwide conferences

  • multimedia magnate Oprah Winfrey lives between several homes in Chicago, Los Angeles, and South Africa

  • USA Pres-31 Herbert Hoover lived between Palo Alto, Washington DC, and his mining interests worldwide

  • Steel industrialist, evangelist of Capitalism Andrew Carnegie traveled constantly for business. Even his purported holidays at various homes involved business-purpose entertaining.

Auspicious and respectable position, L-7 in 10th-from-swakshetra.

  • despite other less favorable marriage angles including L-6 Budha + L-8 Surya residing in the marital 7th, nevertheless "Moral Majority" political televangelist Rev. Jerry Falwell maintained a respectable middle-class lifetime marriage and his wife consistently promoted his career due to L-7 in 10th from 7.

Presuming that Kuja is in a friendly rashi, spousal behavior is steady and spouse will strongly resemble either of the parents, more often the mother.

Spouse is comfortable working at home or with matters of local security, such as in a home office or serving as a guardian of lands, local police, night watchman etc.

One may carry on business negotiations (7) in the home also, and a home office in the foundational level of the shelter levels e.g. the basement is suitable.

There is much business transacted in the home

  • USA Pres-17 Andrew Johnson was a back-room deal maker and his wife was his strong career supporter; his home was the site of many well-crafted business arrangements, particularly land deeds of title (4)

  • partner of USA Pres-41 mother of USA Pres-43, Mrs. Barbara Pierce Bush made her home(s) into a welcoming place. In the comfortable confines of her home, Mrs. Bush hosted decades of meetings and gatherings for her husband's broad (Guru) network of advisers and colleagues. (She did not generally like to go out, but was happy to have good people come in. Guru yuti Chandra)

  • "Earth Changes" mystical psychiatrist Edgar Cayce and his wife Gladys, joined later by a dictation secretary, conducted the readings of the "Sleeping Prophet" in their home

in fact, one needs a bit of a hiding place sometimes in order to avoid the consequences of one's business such as fame that attracts aggressive photographers

A female marriage partner is primarily a mother-figure and steadily parental in their sheltering, protective style.

Spouse builds one 's capacity for sheltering and establishing a home. Stability and security through reinforcement of cultural roots is the most important result of marriage.

one 's social and emotional security depends considerably on the behavior of the spouse. Spouse has a strong sense of place, a conservative and patriotic nature, is loyally attached to the cultural values of their birth land. Spouse is strongly identified with being a parent and cultural role model.

  • the 21-year-old wife of middle-aged USA Pres 22-24 Grover Cleveland bore him five children and raised them in a conservative style. Her greatest service to him was to rescue his reputation (Shani). Uttama L-7 Shani yuti Ketu makes the marital status a bit scattered (Ketu). Cleveland endured a near-crushing scandal when it was discovered that he had fathered a "love child" (his Shukra-8). His young - effectively second - wife promptly created a respectable (Shani) family and a serious schedule of social entertaining (Thula) which largely corrected his reputation as "Grover the Rover".

  • Maria Shriver, the wife of "Terminator" dramatist-athlete, Gov. Calif 2004-2011 Arnold Schwarzenegger, has a strong Azlesha-Chandra. Her public image consistently promoted the roles of mother, wife, educator, and devoted adherent of the folk religion (4).

Spouse may be in addition to a committed parent also a school teacher, property manager, or a local government official.

If malefic, the parental behavior which the spouse repeats is difficult to manage.

  • Mary Todd the wife of USA Pres-16 Abraham Lincoln suffered significant mentally illness and she was often physically ill as well. Nevertheless their marriage endured . Their union was stable (4) until he was murdered. Mrs. Lincoln fully supported her husband's interests, including his political campaigns for which she wrote many letters and his career which required substantial entertaining in their various homes (4) particularly dinners (4)

Intelligent Creative Political Method of Crafting Agreements

Fruitful alliances

L-7 = lord of partnerships resides in bhava-5 the gainful 11th-from-swakshetra

  • profits from alliances, bargaining, deal-making, negotiating abilities

  • one is gainful in politics, creative performance, children, and speculative ventures

  • however, for Shukra-ruled nativities, if L-7 Mangala occupies putra bhava, the alliance is unable to withstand the life-force energy of a child created in this union. Therefore one may experience a pattern of marital alliance becoming unsustainable after creating a child.

Good for partnerships in the creative and political arts. Agreements are beneficial and stable with those who support one's performance activities.

Yuvatipathi uncomfortable in swabhava of Shukra's enemy Surya.

L-7 carries in" the spouse-choosing and partner-mating energies. L-7 in bhava-5 is one of the classic indicators of "love marriage "as distinct from " arranged marriage.

Whether this situation is considered beneficial or not varies by culture.

one is strong-willed in choosing a mate on the sole basis of one's own feelings and judgment. Life's expression of trust, all contracts and agreements, including marriage contract, are strong expressions of the individual creativity and power of will.


In traditional societies (notably India) the cultural belief is that " love marriage" is selfish, adolescent, and destructive to the family harmony. Experienced elders, mainly parents, should choose a match that will benefit the kinship network on essential social, financial, and religious levels - which the sheltered, romantic young person does not yet comprehend.

In western society generally, the cultural belief is that "love marriage" is spiritually authentic, independent, and based in deep physical attraction that can last a lifetime.

The partner-seeker must choose a psychic, physical, and emotional match based on their strong intuitive feelings that this native is The One. Financial and religious considerations are less important overall.

Marital success/failure rates in both cultures seem to be approximately the same - about 50/50 = distribution of Kuja Dosha in the overall population of married adults.


Employment contracts, all legal agreements, trade and barter relationships, commercial partnerships, are affected by one 's powerful sense of willful independence and personal creativity. one may prefer to work as an " independent contractor" rather than suffer bondage to a restrictive contract.


The spouse is typically faithful and friendly, since 11th-from is an inherently friendly and associative angle.

The couple will enjoy a large community social life. The partner is a great help in politics, And especially gainful in large networks for fund-raising.

  • 52nd Dai of Dawoodi Bohra, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin managed a large religious and commercial community. He was married for 60 years to a steadfast helpmate who assisted with growing the networks.

L-7 in 11th-from swakshetra is "fruitful" And thus the first marriage will normally produce at least one child. Fertility and number of children depends on the graha.


Career

Yuvati bhava = 7th-from-7th, an important bhava for career.

Good indicator for career support from a network of contractors and agreeable partners that benefits entertainers, politicians, creative artists.

It is easy for others to find their mutual interest with this native's political or theatrical career.


Partner

Spouse builds one 's capacity for creating children and other performance art. Political, royal, and literary performance is the most important result of marriage.

  • If L-7 = benefic graha, spouse is gainful, friendly, creative, and identifies strongly with children from the marriage. Spouse will be involved in positive amusements such as romantic weekends with one, creating and working with children, and writing of inspirational speeches, poetry and fine literature.

  • Even if L-7 = malefic, this graha will be fruitful in bhava-5. Creates at least one child, at least some profits, and generates a community of associations around the marriage.

If malefic, spouse will be involved in more negative (nevertheless interesting) amusements such as gambling, rough political contests, and lower forms of theatre. Spousal intelligence is strong, but if L-7 = malefic, the creative path may have vulgar qualities.


Children

  • If L-7 = Kuja there can be numerous miscarriages/abortions although the marriage is socially well networked and overall gainful

  • if L-7 = Shani = a long delay and/or heavy responsibilities regarding children although the marriage is socially well networked and respected in the community

  • If L-7 = yuti Rahu, the marriage and its " fruits" including children and marketplace gainfulness become complicated by boundary-challenging influence of foreign or exotic persons

When L-7 = Mangala-5, expect repeating patterns of marital disagreement about pregnancies and child-raising.

Despite the otherwise favorable implications of L-7 in the profitable 11th from swakshetra, this single placement may contribute significantly to conditions of permanent marital separation.

The surprising L-7 Mangala in 5 often will catch the couple off guard. Any children born into the union will however succeed economically (11) and socially. The children are friendly, gainful, and well-connected.

Das comment on "The lord of the 7 is in 5, and the lord of the 7 has at least one beneficial placement attribute."

"You will be married young.

Your spouse may hail from a wealthy family and be very competent. "

Argumentative Method of Crafting Agreements

L-7 =marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke

in Bhava 6 = disagreement, accusation, litigation, illness, addiction, servitude, poverty, debt, drugs, physicians, ministries of service to the less fortunate

Inauspicious and loss-causing position + L-7 in 12th-from-7th

L-7 in 6 is generally quite inauspicious for easy agreement inmarriage

contractual agreements tend to erode when L-7 migrates into the dissolving, disagreeable, accusing 12th-from-7th

  • particularly challenging placements when L-7 = natural malefic, for lagna = Vrishabha, Karkata, Simha, or Thula

Spouse builds one 's capacity for argumentation. Dealing with chronic underlying distrust is the most important result of marriage.

Loss of marital agreement is part of the experience.

Divorce is not necessarily required, but some expression of loss of agreement such as cessation of sexual congress or an adversarial extramarital interest, is usually seen in the unfolding of this yoga

  • Some scholars assert that the wife of USA Pres-16 Abraham Lincoln suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder. Whilst a superb entertainer and a supportive partner in their "two-person career" Mrs. Lincoln also exhibited out-of-control spending, screaming fits, and physically beat her husband. L-7 Mangala yuti Rahu in 6 suggests her ailment; his stalwart, lawful Shani-Vrischika-7 suggests his capacity to endure.

If L-7 is dignified, this position can grant a good career for the spouse in one of the professions that manages social conflict = professional military, attorney, physician, urban planner, social worker, high-conflict negotiator etc.

  • USA Pres-12, Mexican-American War Gen. Zachary Taylor * parivartamsha L-6 Guru + Shukra . With the compensation of parivartamsha to L-8 plus L-7 yuti Shukra, President Taylor enjoyed a reasonably pleasant marriage, albeit his wife was frequently very ill. In their normal married lifestyle which was a rough life of military duty while moving from frontier fort to frontier fort, Mrs. Taylor proved hardy. However she argued fiercely (6) against his political ambitions, and during his presidency she refused all social duties, never coming down to the public rooms from her suite on the second floor of the Whitehouse during his entire 16-month term.

Typically the native with L-7 in 6 attracts partners both personal and professional who endure considerable inner conflict within the spouse's own personality, like Mrs. Taylor above.

Even when L-7 in bhava-6 helps the native's own profession, it will reduce the scope of agreement within the marriage or business partnership.

Illness of the partner or shared living in rough conditions may be easier to endure, since physical stress can redirect the focus of imbalance away from the marriage itself and onto the struggle for survival.

Also, since Shani-6 and Mangala-6 can both produce some degree of positive outcome in rogasthana, L-7 Shani in 6 and L-7 Mangala in 6 are potentially favorable for partnership in conditions of poverty, war, disease, false accusations, toxic pollution, servitude, and all of the other miseries of bhava-6.


Psychological withdrawal + withholding of full participation in marriage-alliance, along with lack of initiative (Shani, scarcity) to make needed changes. Exhaustion, loss of identity within human partnerships.

  • Sainte de Notre-Dame de Lourdes Bernadette Soubirous

  • Despite numerous dalliances including a 24-year-long conjugal relationship with his clinical assistant, "Memories, Dreams, Reflections" mystical psychiatristCarl Jung maintained his formal marriage at his wife's request, since public dignity was very important to her. Likely it was important to him also, since L-7 = the prideful Sun. Yet he withdrew most or all of his concern and affection from her; only the external shell remained.

Chronic resistance to normal marital negotiations, therapeutic spousal dialog, or decisive legal action. Generally an angle of "do nothing" marital discontent. Particularly when L-7 in 6 = Shani, one may feel unable to act in either a positive or negative direction; tends to subsist in a drained 12th-from low-energy state. Most of the marriage energy goes into the realm of the criticizing and accusing (6) imagination (6 = 12th-from-7th).

  • King of England, 1509-1547 Henry VIII Tudor (L-7 Shani-6) for 20 years Henry remained married to his first wife Catalina de Aragon. She was elder to him (Shani L-7) and he often followed her political advice (7).

However during the mahadasha of L-12 Chandra in 8 - perhaps knowing that his life force was slipping away - he began wildly reaching for much-younger wives and absolute power. Five of the notorious "six wives of Henry the Eighth" were acquired in the final seven years of his life.

However when L-7 in 6 = a more active graha

L-7 in the satkona = the union is drained, exhausted, depleted causing loss of vitality in the core trust. Partner = "stuck" in their own problem-sets (6).

Typically, the spouse self-medicates. Substance addictions and depression in the first spouse-partner.

  • dramatist Rue McClanahan = six marriages; her theatrical career roles also emphasize marital disagreements

  • avant-garde artist Yoko Ono Lennon = heroin and alcohol addictions of Beatle John Lennon

  • dramatist-artist Dennis Hopper = five marriages, theatrical career roles also emphasize marital disagreements

  • Beatle Paul McCartney notable alcoholism and supplemental drugs

  • balladeer, dramatist, fashion model Whitney Houston famously married a drug-criminal fellow singer and via Shukra-6 herself endured decades of addiction

"Turtle Island" poet, environmentalist Gary Snyder = four marriages, literary writings also emphasized destructive exploitation of the natural environment


Chronic deterioration of agreements that may be achieved at times between spouses and partners.

If a malefic+ L-7 in 12th-from-swakshetra may temporarily bond the couple over "problem-solving" projects such as paying down debt, treating an illness, or the marriage may serve as a temporary proof that one really can establish a balanced relationship.

Typically the spouse (agent L-7) suffers from some species of mental, social, or physical illness, including addictions, criminal behaviors, chronic self-doubt, or chemical imbalance of the physiology. Nature of the spousal illness is determined by the graha. The spousal illness may be well compensated if other graha are well positioned, but eventually the interior conflict experienced by one will motivate a dissolution of the marriage contract, i.e., divorce

If a benefic, joint denial and overcompensation leading to infidelity, indebtedness, and shame.

Criticism

  • Because bhava-6 is Budha's house of argument and criticism, one can expect to receive abundant criticism for one's Alliance-building and partnering actions .

  • One's efforts to create contractual agreement and one's choice of partner complained about to the point where the partner may be scandalized

Yuvati-pathi = in swakshetra.

Auspicious socially, yet the partner(s) may wield an overwhelming influence in one's life.

  • Spouse builds one 's capacity for making alliances.

  • Contract-making is the most important result of marriage.

  • Gender qualities and one's ability to attract the relationship interest of others may be intensely self-defining for one .

Constant bargaining and deal-making may consume the vitality of both partners, leaving little energy for more harmonious resting in the existing agreement.

The partner has such a vivid personality that one 's psychological growth into maturity may be stunted.

If L-7 Shukra in 7, karako bhavo nashto produces "Too much partner."

If L-7 = Shani in 7, dig-bala grants longevity of the marriage contract. Divorce is obtained only if other graha occupy 7.

L-7 = Shani in 7 guarantees neither sexual loyalty nor happiness (although other factors such as Shukra may support pleasures and wealth) but the legal contract itself endures.

The first life-partner = a vivid, dominating personality according to the nature of the L-7. The social-contractual requirement to accommodate one's partner's interests and style can dominate one's agreement-crafting and social balancing process.

  • UK-Prince William Windsor = Shukra = beauty, grace, design

  • humanitarian, UK-Princess Diana Spencer = Shukra = wealth, agreement, pairing, matches

  • USA Pres-11 James Knox Polk+ nichha-Surya was generally uneasy in social situations, due partly to his Shani-fear of "wasting time". Luckily for his political prospects, Polk married the intelligent, relationship-crafting Sarah Childress. Historian consider her to have been the main reason for his political (Surya) and financial (Shukra) success.

L-7 = Mangala in 7 a vigorously negotiating partner.

Life-partner = in charge of the couple's social life; one's spouse represents the couple in public. one will permit this spouse to control the public image of the marriage, even if that image is intimately inaccurate.

  • Typically L-7 in 7 = authentically engaged in the sexual aspect of marriage, as well as other interactive and negotiating behaviors of relationship. The spouse is welcoming when L-7 = benefic.

If L-7 = Shukra, yuvati bhava will = Vrishabha or Thula. The partner's role in one's life = provider and procurer of capital wealth and pleasure. However with Shukra as L-7 in bhava-7, karako bhavo nashto = too much bargaining for pleasure or for wealth = may apply.

If L-7 = Budha, a friendly, chatty, generally tolerant partner who appreciates the diversity of human sexual behaviors. Partners may remain married for a long time without an exclusivity requirement.

  • Pres-Venezuela 1999-2013 Hugo R. Chavez was married to his first wife for 18 years while he was busy elsewhere. As his ability to form political career liaisons allowed the couple to rise from poverty into plenty, the marriage was initially quite flexible.


Lord of 7 occupies 7

Spouse

  • has a self-directed personality.

  • Spouse may be an athlete, fashion model, dancer, hunter, military or one who is strongly identified with the physical body.

  • Alternatively, the spouse may be a broker, advocate, attorney, match-maker or deal-maker who handles the negotiation of values and worth in a highly energized (1) yet somewhat primitive (1) style. The behavioral qualities depend on the graha and any companions to the graha, incoming drishti etc.

Das comments "The lord of the 7 is in 5, and the lord of the 7 has at least one negative placement attribute."

"You may have few or no children, possibly a step child.

Your boss or superior may troubled by dealings overseas. "

Das comments "The lord of the 7 is in 5, and the lord of the 7 has at least one beneficial placement attribute."

"You will be married young.

Your spouse may hail from a wealthy family and be very competent. "

Hidden Method of Crafting Agreements

L-7 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke

in Bhava 8

Any graha which is born into randhra bhava becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8).

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

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


Marriage

Challenging placement for maintenance of conventional equity-ensuring marriage vows.

Exclusivity promises (7) may undergo many iterations (8) of change; sometimes shocking and sudden change (8).

Confidential (8) relationships (8).

often a component of personalities with "tantrik" agenda where hidden, taboo, or covert sexual relationships may be generated in a personality-transformative context:

Terms of agreement tend to be covered or secret. Incomplete disclosure.

Marriage is better understood as transformative process, not fixed value or static content. Business partnerships and advising-counseling relationships are similarly disposed toward non-transparency (occult) and non-accountability (Mangala the natural lord of 8 = enemy of Budha the Accountant).

If Shani = L-7 in 8, conventionally lawful (Shani) terms and arrangements = consistently presented to the public (Shani) and dignity is upheld. Typically L-7 in 8 = hidden alliances but these are successfully contained (Shani) in ways that do not break the contract.

Shukra = L-7 in 8

Diplomacy and graciousness characterize the situation despite variance from the conventional expectations

  • partner of "terminator" Calif Gov 2004-2011 Maria Shriver managed a dignified divorce following the scandal re: her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger's long-term liaison + child with the housekeeper

  • USA Pres-36 Lyndon Baines Johnson created a remarkable number of romantic liaisons with women in his professional environment. One biographer claimed that during LBJ's years in the USA-Senate and his presidency, LBJ was sexually involved with five of his eight secretaries. His adventures generated several "love child" offspring as well. However, due to a strong Vimala yoga, LBJ's public dignity was never compromised. His involvement with numerous other "secret contracts" both financial and political was successfully masked (L-7 + L-12 Shukra-8).

Mangala = L-7 in 8

  • the first wife of USA Pres-26 Theodore Roosevelt died of renal failure soon after giving birth to their first child. Teddy Roosevelt never mentioned her again in writing or conversation, not even within his life-spanning autobiography


Inauspicious for transparency of word and deed in alliance partnership. Terms of contract enter the Hidden zone. Negotiations and deals conducted in secret. Agreements subjects to forced-changes

  • L-7 in 2nd-from-swakshetra.

Spouse = agent of fast-spinning cycle of self-destruction and rebirth. First marriage is generally short-lived, although the public may not know this because matters of bhava-8 are hidden.

Sudden, catastrophic and potentially healing transformation of one 's identity = the most important result of marriage.

  • It is an upsetting placement which must be handled from a therapeutic perspective.


L-7 in bhava-8 of sudden, forced changes = notoriously difficult for the expected stability and non-changing pillar-of-society relationship 10th-from-10th = marriage.

One may experience infidelity to the marriage contract. The mate in this lifetime has a rather mysterious motivation for joining the marriage. The spouse becomes a major catalyst for forced change in one 's self-consciousness awareness.

The yoga is not a prediction of infidelity per se but rather a signal that the mate has agency to enforce the transformation of the native's consciousness leading to a new identity for the native. The transformation may be enforced delicately or roughly according to the nature of the graha which is L-7 mate in 6 identity-change.

  • Partner USA Pres-44 partner (Shukra) Michelle Robinson Obama played a major role via conversation (L-7 Budha) in transforming her husband Barack Hussein Obama from an idealistic young poverty-class advocate (his Chandra-6) into POTUS-44.

The spouse may be a tantrik priest, a therapeutic healer, a surgeon or psychiatrist, a covert operator, or a handler of dangerous and confidential information. If the graha is very difficult, the spouse may be a person who is severely emotionally closed due to trauma, and resistant to adult intimacy.


L-7 in bhava-8 indicates that the spouse is prone to martyrdom, perhaps a great saint, committed to sacrifice, and often wishing to transform the basic instinctual human sexuality of bhava-7 into something 'higher' via religious abstinence or other sacrificial transformation. Thus the spouse is often not sexually available.

Although divorce is not required and in fact the spouse is often committed to religious beliefs which proscribe divorce, one feels effectively divorced or more accurately widowed. one rather predictably turns to other companionship.

Conventional society expects that spouses should support and stabilize each other's social identities. However, when L-7 occupies bhava-8, the spouse does not accept one's current identity, and in fact sets out to destroy it so that one can be pushed forward to a higher destiny or otherwise 'improved'.


When in bhava-8+ L-7 the agreement-maker is forced to express its balance-seeking behavior in context of sudden, often catastrophic, changes. In this psychic environment, marriage finds no stable foundation. Rarely can the couple remain faithful nor even share the same house.

However, all is not lost. If L-7 is a favorable graha, the spouses may greatly respect each other for their respective strengths and personal integrity. They may continue to help and support each other in non-intimate ways. Tantrik knowledge is obtained. Spiritual benefits arise.

The general public need not know the intimate details of this marriage, since bhava-8 is the house of hidden things. The external appearance of the marriage may mask an interior reality of virtual widowhood. Interpersonally L-7 in bhava-8 is a difficult placement for marriage.

Yet if the graha is good, the external appearances, material and moral support, and other non-intimate components of marriage may be successful.

Philosophical Method of Crafting Agreements

L-7 = marriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke

enters

Bhava-9 belief, doctrine, preacher-teacher, sacred space, world travel

Communicative position, excellent for business: L-7 in 3rd-from-swakshetra.

L-7 in 3rd from swakshetra = First life partner is highly oriented to communications, media-message, writing, announcements.

  • first husband of "Harry Potter" writer J.K. Rowling was a television journalist

  • "Hour of Decision" televangelist Rev. Billy Graham married life partner Ruth Bell Graham and together they forged a two-person career in global Christian preaching ministry (9). However her father (Surya) had been a religious missionary of a different doctrine; she did not convert her religious creed, remaining independent in matters of belief (Surya) even while she cooperated (Shukra) with her husband..

  • first wife of "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein was a writer (and it is suspected that she co-wrote or ghost-wrote a some of his seminal theory papers)

First life partner (7) may psychologically resemble one's own father (9).

  • the first husband of Mrs. Betty Ford (before she married USA Pres Gerald Ford) was a severe alcoholic and traveling salesman, the same profile as her father

  • Pakistan-PM 1988-90; 1993-96 Benazir Bhutto married a partner from her father's district (Sindh) who was very similar in character and background to her father, hailing from the same social class with the same set of political aspirations and same beliefs about how to reach those goals

  • the first mate of balladeer Lisa Marie Presley was a professional musical performer, similar to her father

  • the first marriage of "Seven Year Itch" dramatist Marilyn Monroe was avowed at her age 16. The purpose of the marriage was to protect her from returning to yet another foster home. Mangala in 9 joins L-7 Guru. Good will (Guru) created the union, but youthful restlessness (Kuja) created a quick divorce.

Spouse builds one 's capacity for religious practice.

  • Religious development is the most important result of marriage.

The spouse is an agent of good fortune in ways dictated by the character of the graha. Spouse functions as one's moral adviser and guru. The relationship is naturally somewhat sibling-like, with a competitive an affectionately adversarial under-layer.

The spouses are comfortable with each other as typically this angle attracts those with a similar mentality. However a mental basis is not quite enough to sustain a lifelong engagement, and one may outgrow such a first marriage especially if the mind is very active.


Spouse is morally supportive, and organized in matters of social networking through the sahanga of professional, religious or scholarly fellowship.

Spouse is often a fellow professional, respected practitioner in an allied field, or highly ranked in one's own spiritual or artistic lineage.

This position of L-7 in 3rd-from-swakshetra does not prevent divorce, but after divorce the couple may remain sibling-type friends, with many amicable connections in common.

The agency ofmarriage partnership promise vow balance diplomacy brokerage agreement union pairing yoke

enters the realm of institutional leadership, public visibility, reputation, executive duties, and iconic symbolic roles

a career in dealing-making and arranging partnerships

Auspicious. Particularly good results in administrative law, judgeship, policy and planning, human relations/human resources, diplomacy, and other agreement-seeking disciplines.

Spouse builds the career. Professional development is the most important result of marriage.

The spouse is a steady and grounding force of parental quality who strongly supports and stabilizes one's own career.

Spouse is a practical, hardworking overseer of the home, often a teacher and often the primary parent, yet quite capable of high ranking leadership in their own professional area. Great parental stability and care. Spouse has strong cultural roots very compatible with one 's basic cultural upbringing.

However this good auspice can become reversed if L-7 is a graha of poor quality (see Jodie Foster).

"You will have a career in travel or something related to travel. "

Networking Method of Crafting Agreements

Social-material gain (11) from bargains, terms of agreement, match-making, deal-making, marriage, alliance, negotiation, contracts, facilitation, from the partner, from diplomacy, balancing, equity, parity, weights and values.

Maximum results obtained via involvement of Budha.

  • Queen of England 1558-1603 Elizabeth-1 * parivartamsha L-11 Budha = master deal-maker

  • UK-Queen 1837-1901 Victoria-1

  • USA Pres-35 partner, Mrs. Jackie Kennedy Onassis - two materially gainful marriages

  • USA Pres-18, Civil-War Gen. Ulysses S. Grant- crafted the terms of surrender which allowed the end of the USA Civil War

  • USA Pres-33 Harry Truman consummate political deal-maker = L7 Shani * parivartamsha Budha

  • USA Pres-40, dramatist Ronald Reagan - promoted vigorously by his dedicated partner, wife-2 Nancy Davis Reagan

  • USA Pres-34 partner, Mrs. Mamie Doud Eisenhower persistently ensured that her husband got promoted, rewarded, and elected. "I have but one career," she famously said, "and his name is Ike."

Auspicious position+ L-7 in 5th-from-swakshetra.

  • the legendary songwriting creativity of "Imagine" Beatle John Winston Lennon was much influenced by his partnerships: first with partner-songwriter "Silly Love Songs" Beatle Paul McCartney and later with partner-songwriter and financial manager Yoko Ono. On the plus side, Budha rules his 7th navamsha, and Budha occupies his 5th radix, signaling creative partnerships. On the minus side, L-7 Guru occupies the auspiciously profitable 11th -- yuti Shani-nichha. His partnerships while gainful also suffered much conflict and even hatred (Shani-Meza).

Partner (7) is economically gainful (11) and politically positive (L-7 in 5th from swakshetra)

  • USA Pres-01 George Washington's wife Martha was a quite wealthy businesswoman when she married George. According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_Washington "She capably ran the five plantations left to her when her first husband died, bargaining with London merchants for the best tobacco prices." She was both a social friend to George and a political funder. They believed in the same causes and attended the same networking events (11).

Spouse and allies are the agents who builds one's network of associations.

Generally a creative and gainful placement for marriage, adds to children and the poetic "romance" of marriage L-7 in 5th-from swakshetra.

  • At the age of 21, writer "Lord of the Rings" J.R.R. Tolkien married his wife Edith. Their lifelong partnership was fruitful of progeny, profitable financially, and poetically romantic throughout. Consistent with a Simha bride, Edith was a dancer with theatrical instincts.

  • USA Pres-40, dramatist Ronald Reagan Shukra-Kumbha L-7 in 11 enjoyed two interlinked social networks. Shukra is a yogakaraka from the Kumbha lagna.

  • The first web built by his first wife Jane Wyman a prominent film actress connected him to most of the Hollywood entertainment industry.

  • The second web built by his second wife Nancy Davis who hailed from a politically connected New York family linked him into the national political network and the East Coast banking establishment.

  • After marrying wife-2, he left entertainment and entered politics, where despite having no government experience whatsoever he was elected twice to governor of California and twice to USA president.

  • Reagan's network-based career is a sparkling example of the saying "It's not what you know, it's who you know."

Extension of economic network via socially approved contractual agreements = the most important result of marriage.

Partners = friendly, creative, and speculative, and gainful according to the character of the graha that is L-7.

Spouse functions like an elder sibling or cousin : friendly, gainful, materially goal-oriented, and socially linking.

In cultures where cousin-marriage is supported, the spouse may literally be a mentor-level of cousin = slightly elder or more experienced but favorably inclined to help one achieve one's goals.

While supporting one 's goal achievement; the spouse has independent charisma (5). Presuming L-7 is well-disposed, partner = successfully networked into a market of associations.

The life-partner may be highly social, creating a large network for the couple to enjoy. Spouse is often associated with large assemblies of profit-makers, and the marriage increases one 's own gainfulness according to the strength of L-7 by rashi, drishti, and lordship.

Spouse may be politically active, enjoy fund-raising for community development, or just really like going to parties. Spouse is speculative, likes taking risks, enjoys celebrity and fame. If the graha is intelligent and productive, this is a literary angle where both the spouse and one enjoy writing and reading in literary culture.

L-7 = Bhava-12 = private liaisons, back-room deals, imagination, residence in distant lands, monastery, sanctuary, research, retreat

Inauspicious and unrealistic position = L-7 in 6th-from-swakshetra.

Spouse (7) builds the sanctuary (12). Private seclusion is the most important result of marriage.

Marriage difficulties due to spouse's need for privacy

L-7 in the invisible 12th , adversarial 6th-from-7th = karaka for multiple marriages due to the 'adversarial paradigm' for marriage in general.

  • radio-TV celebrity interviewer Larry King = eight marriages

  • real-estate financier, TV entertainer Donald Trump = three marriages

  • Shah of Persia 1797-1834 Fat'h Ali Shah Qajar was said to have had more than 1000 spouses

Where divorce is not permitted for political or cultural reasons, extramarital adventure may be expected.

  • USA-Sen-NC, presidential hopeful John Edwards (2008 extramarital scandal)

  • USA Pres-32 Franklin D. Roosevelt + Shukra

Partner = emotionally or physically withdrawn, or spouse takes long residence in a distant setting. Partner may be invisible, in seclusion, or frequently hospitalized.

  • USA-Sen-NC John Edwards (2008 extramarital scandal) = wife Elizabeth Edwards often hospitalized or convalescing with terminal breast cancer.

  • the first wife of USA Pres-10 John Tyler suffered a series of strokes which left her paralyzed; although actively issuing instructions to staff (L-7 = Budha) she remained secluded in the family homes and later lived upstairs in the White House, venturing downstairs only once during Tyler's presidency.

  • the first wife of USA Pres-13 Millard Fillmore was also a frail and sickly woman. She refrained from politically essential Whitehouse socializing during her husband's presidential term, and died soon after. He remarried a wealthy widow but she also eventually ailed and predeceased him.

  • the wife of USA Pres-21 Chester A. Arthur = Shukra-Thula-12+Budha = was a beautiful, talented young singer; in early marriage their parties were quite popular with the higher social register of 1860's New York City. However Arthur excluded her from his "back room" political life, perhaps due to an extramarital interest = L-8 Budha in 12, suggesting a hidden additional mate, perhaps an adolescent. His wife grew frail and died of pneumonia age 42.

However, the spouse may also contribute positive support to one 's clairsentient, intuitive, meditational, and sanctuary-sustaining activities. If one is involved in clandestine or otherwise private, enclosed projects, or perhaps campaigns in foreign lands, the spouse serves as contributing agent to further those projects.

  • Wanda, the close lifelong friend of Pope John Paul II 1978-2005 Karol Wojtyla, moved to Rome after his elevation as Pope and supported him in many roles

One of the sources of marital conflict is that the mate-partner often hails from a distant land. The mate feels 'invisible' in the marriage, and may feel that either enflaming (Mangala) or denying (Shani) the bedroom pleasures is a useful expression of discord within the union.

  • USA golf champion Tiger Woods married a beautiful young woman from the distant land of Sweden. Their private bedroom disagreements became public drama when L-7 Shani crosses Mr. Wood's radical Simha lagna = navamsha Simha lagna

Often the (first) spouse is a background figure whose identity is not integral to one 's self-image, and whose behavior is not well understood by oneself. Subsequent spouses may be more flamboyant depending upon graha yuti Shukra and character of bhava-2.

  • "Basic Instinct" dramatist, cinematic producer Michael Douglas was married for decades to a retreating first-spouse who had no celebrity attributes and who did not want public attention. However his second life-partner was very different, a beautiful high-fashion public icon = Thula-Shukra-2

Life-partner or business partner may hail from a foreign land, or have been raised in a culture whose values are foreign to one's home culture. Spouse-1 may be chronically ill, have a private alternative sexual life, or have other ways of closing off him/her self from the marriage, into a private enclosure either mental or physical or both.

First spouse may have certain vulgar characteristics, hide in illness, or have a passive-aggressive personality (or all of the above).


Private imagination

Within the imagination, one may construct an interpretive story regarding one's spouse-partner. This story fills in the missing details about the spouse's true motives and what the spouse is actually doing.

Yet this is a story drawing from one 's own subconscious childhood memories, and not necessarily an accurate account of the spouses actual behavior or intent.

One blessed with dramatic talent can put oneself into the theatrical role being deeply in love, and successfully act out that role in public life (see: Nancy Reagan, Angelina Jolie, John Edwards). This native will appear to be touching and gazing adoringly at their partner. It is possible to use this imaginative projection as substitute for authentic interpersonal understanding, and those with dramatic training who are living in the limelight of public life frequently do.


Typically there was unresolved conflict between the spouse's parents. This embedded memory repeats continuously in one 's subconscious mind. Thus one carries uninterrupted childhood expectation of adversarial attack from the partner into marriage(s).

Therapy and forgiveness practice can be beneficial = bring this subconscious negative expectation up to the surface of consciousness; behavioral changes can be applied after that to reduce the habitual reactiveness.


Formal marriage is less desirable for this native. If multiple marriages have failed, it is probably not a good idea to just keep getting remarried - at least until the underlying fears have been revealed. The bulk of the karma is paid off with the first marriage, but the pattern of expectation-of-conflict-and-attack will persist in shadow form throughout subsequent marriages, if it is not discussed and corrected in therapy.


Public image of the marriage may be rather glamorous, esp. if L-5 is strong; because when L-7 occupies bhava-12, the Arudha lagna of marriage becomes bhava-5, the house of celebrity and fame.

However the interior reality is that one carries a persistent subconscious expectation that the spouse is an enemy.

Marital conflict often addressed by the spouse's taking long journeys, sequestering in ashram or hospital, or seeking private alternative liaisons. problem-sets arising with the spouse eventually cause a loss of positive social identity for one, during the periods of L-7.


Shani and Public Dignity

  • Shani L-7 in 12 = Indira Gandhi's marriage was famously marked by conflict and long separations yet she remained publically married until her husband's death.

" ... You are attracted to noble and virtuous partners and your spouse will probably be one such person.

Nobility of character is a precious commodity not easily to be found in the majority of people.

Your spouse will probably be morally strict,

god-conscious,

and in love with you. "

14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso and Howard C. Cutler, M.D.. (1998).

"Developing a flexible approach to living is not only instrumental in helping us cope with everyday problem-sets--it also becomes the cornerstone for a key element of a happy life: balance.

  • Settling comfortably into his chair one morning, the Dalai Lama explained the value of leading a balanced life.

  • "A balanced and skillful approach to life, taking care to avoid extremes, becomes a very important factor in conducting one's everyday existence. It is important in all aspects of life.

  • For instance, in planting a sapling of a plant or a tree, at its very early stage you have to be very skillful and gentle. Too much moisture will destroy it, too much sunlight will destroy it. Too little will also destroy it.

  • So what you need is a very balanced environment where the sapling can have a healthy growth.

  • Or, for a person's physical health, too much or too little of any one thing can have destructive effects. For example, too much protein I think is bad, and too little is bad.

"This gentle and skillful approach, taking care to avoid extremes, applies to healthy mental and emotional growth as well."
