Affiliated with Doctrine, moral-philosophical teaching, orthodox religion, public spiritual guidance, public worship.

One's physical appearance and social personality are closely identified with a particular philosophical doctrine, ideology, or theory. One serves as a priestly representative of the belief system, and usually a preacher promoting the system's values.

"I am:

  • my philosophy, my ideology, my beliefs, my theory, my professorial scholarship, my preaching, my priesthood, my ceremonial worship skills, and my faith in higher principles."

If Shani L-9 in lagna, the beliefs are strictly orthodox

if Mangala L-9 in lagna, some modern innovation to the inherited principles

  • Dale Sr., the father of NASCAR champion 1951-2001 Dale Earnhardt was also an automobile mechanic and car-racing champion.

The shad-ashtakya relationship of L-9 in 8th-from-9th requires a person of broadly philosophical nature (9) to engage with those of narrow, parochial nature (4).

Therefore the father may be not well settled (8th-from-4th = upheaval) in his job, and his unhappiness may emerge (8) in the home (4).

Lord of 5th-from-5th in bhava-5

Splendid for children and grandchildren, politics, theatre, speculative business ventures, games and entertainments, and acts of divinely inspired genius.

May effectively counteract other prognoses of trouble regarding children.

  • USA Pres-05 "Monroe Doctrine" James Monroe with uttama-Surya in bhava-5 (a karaka for miscarriage and infant death) suffered the infant death of his only son. Yet Monroe was also blessed with two beautiful, gracious daughters who hostessed his social entertainments whilst his ill wife (L-7 in 6) was bedridden.

Brilliant at rituals and games.

Men well-suited to the role of Father.

  • One's own father or father-figure is generally a positive influence (but this outcome depends more upon qualities of Ravi).

L-9 in 5 = often possessed of Divine Confidence which is expressed in personal intelligence, in a highly individualized and bright fashion.

The lord of Guru's swabhava provides a beneficial influence in the natural Bhava- of Surya. Children are very fortunate and the native is blessed with many expressions of good luck and wisdom. Intelligence is expanded away from the selfish introspection of genius, outward to the greater cosmic setting.

Splendid placement for an authentic religious preacher, who can channel the divine intelligence in an accurate and inspired yet charismatically personalized way. Regardless of the vocation, this native is charismatic and abundantly blessed with confidence.

L-9 in 5 = philosophical involvement with the lover, who is an essential guide and a person of high awareness (barring a seriously flawed graha as L-9).

Romance is much heightened in this incarnation, with the lover(s) providing wise and brilliant support.

Literary and performance arts = brilliantly expressed in a highly individualistic, creative, and entitled but not selfish style.

L-9 in 5 may have a limited number of children but the children are very beneficial in one's life. Parent-child relationship tends to form more along student-teacher lines with less authoritarian approach and more a guru attitude.

Benefits wealth, religion, and general welfare. L-9 in bhava-5 is a karaka for great wealth. Enhances generosity and compassion.

L-9 = Shani in bhava-6 = ministry of service to commoners, to the masses

L-9 in Bhava- 6 = L-9 in the dignified, responsible, governing 10th from swakshetra

FATHER-related problem-sets

Often the father must struggle with some variety of lifestyle imbalance (6) such as illness, poverty, a socially ostracized lifestyle, or a difficult divorce (if L-9 in 6 = Shukra, addictions).

Yet due to the dignity of L-9 in 10th-from-swakshetra, the father continues to work and provide for his family in a socially respectable (10th from) way.

  • The father of USA Pres-29 "Teapot Dome" Warren G. Harding was a physician (6) and business speculator who rather consistently lost money plunging his family into increasing debt. However his mother also a physician supported the family.
  • "Wizard of Oz" 1922-1969 Judy Garland adored her entertainer, theatre-owner father (Surya-5) however he himself struggled with his socially-criticized homosexual lifestyle and identity, with indebtedness, and with substance addictions. His death at her age 13 was, according to her, a source of unceasing lifelong grief.

Benefits Leadership roles in medicine, military, legal defense, , agriculture, loan-making, and in human services ministries.

  • USA Pres-18, Civil-War Gen. Ulysses S. Grant military

  • Japan-Emperor Showa 1926-1989 Hirohito military

  • USA Pres-38 partner, addiction recovery Betty Ford medicine addictions treatment

The 10th angle represent material order, lawfulness, rank and position. Despite carrying the dharmic significance of ritual priesthood, the 10th-from-9th grants material manifestations not spiritual.

There may be other graha elsewhere in the nativity which grant spiritual guidance, but the 9th-from-10th = Ari Bhava is very much a bhava of social-material life specifically human-to-human argumentation, exploitation, and service.

With this placement it is vitally important to hear the call and serve a cause.

  • one who heeds a call to selfless, high-level service will find that one's personal difficulties pale in comparison to the sorrows of the masses, and the capacity to lead the disenfranchised into some measure of calm during their miserable lives is a true vocation (10).

  • the native unable to hear their call to service will find that through undue focus upon public opinion, one feels much personal misery

Potential for quarrels with the father, who may be a sort of a criminal, a drunkard or addicted to some substance or unseemly behavior - or possibly a distinguished hypocrite.

  • According to "Out on a Limb" dramatist, occult writer Shirley MacLaine with L-9 Budha in 6, her father was an articulate but un-empathetic narcissist-careerist (6th = 10th career from 9) who cared more for his professional reputation than for his family. (Her Surya-Rahu in 9th navamsha confirms his solipsism.)
  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 Henry Ford reported a strained relationship with his father. Dad wanted Henry to take over the family farm on good land, and Dad even gave Henry a house with tillable acreage. But Henry willfully (Mangala Simha) insisted on futile "tinkering" with engines. The two fought.

Predicted unfavorable outcome may be much improved via beneficial graha. Father need not be decrepit. However the father-son relationship is adversarial and accusatory.

  • USA Pres-18, Civil-War Gen. Ulysses S. Grant argued with his father for most of their lives. Grant's parents refused to attend their son's wedding since they disagreed with their son's wife's family's politics. Grant's father often mentioned how incapable was his son, suited only for the low-paying military, who later became the winning general of the USA Civil War.

For a woman, quarrels with her husband; and for either gender, accusations and arguments with men in authority roles.

However one called to high leadership in a ministry of service will find that these quarrels amount to very little in contrast to the magnitude of their service to the victim class.

  • USA Pres-44 "Audacity of Hope" Barack Obama L-9 Mangala-Simha in 6 yuti Rahu. The one would would be president-44 struggled throughout his childhood with the absentee father problem-set. As young Barry came to have more information about his father, he discovered that his father had not led an exemplary life. Despite charismatic intelligence (Simha, Rau) the father had many problem-sets including immigration deportation, failure to complete diploma, and Indeed, his father's life appeared mainly as a trail of divorces, job terminations, and infelicitous lifestyle choices ending in a fatal car accident (Kuja).

In the best cases, one is acutely aware of having been called into the service of the Divine (9) and one places ones leadership capabilities utterly at That One's disposal, regardless of the material consequences.

Bodes poorly for childhood relationship to one's father.

  • "Thriller" 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson L-9 Shani in 6 = recounted frequent beatings and dominating bullying from his ex-boxing-fighter father.

  • USA Pres-37 partner Pat Nixon had a sick, money-losing father who was of a pioneering spirit; yet he seemed to fail at every scheme. Also Mangala-9.

Generally inauspicious for faith in religion, and dealings with priests. Bodes relatively well for the father's career and the native's career also.

If a malefic+ L-9 in 10th-from-swakshetra will damage access to rituals that ease communion with the spirits. Limits faith in religious teachings and in the guru. Induces a common-sense view of moral action based on a pragmatic view of competition for scarce resources and a mandate for personal choice that is not swayed by glamorous appearances or sentimental hopes.

Very much a realist in matters of religion and truth. The father's career is improved according to the dignity of the graha.

Whether malefic or benefic, the father's career is experienced as conflict for the native himself. (Naturally the father's career deprives the father of time to attend to his children, 10th-from-9th is always the native 's conflicted bhava-6.)This native will not follow in his father's career.

When L-9 is a benefic, native cherishes a positive hope that evil either is not real or can be easily overcome. Overcompensation behaviors in religion. He wants to put a positive spin on the negative aspects of human life and to create for himself a confirmed spirituality.

With L9 in toxic bhava-6 he has no trust in priests and returns compulsively to the realities of exploitation and victimization. A child raised without viable faith who seeks adult religious conversion. Lifetime struggle with the fact of human evil. May have a tortured career in theology or ethics yet deprived of authentic ritual * worth-ship * worship due to inner conflict and mistrust.

If L-9 = Budha or Surya, will rationalize religion - reducing it to ethics or civil custom.

Materially focused in 10th-from-swakshetra, the L-9 in Ripu Bhava materializes world cultures and travel, enlightening discussions with social leaders from diverse cultural backgrounds, and often a highly visible international career.

L-9 in 6 = publicly associated with arguments regarding exploitation of the vulnerable, illegal acts, addictions, illnesses, disloyalty, toxicity, and disease - but these matters are handled in a priestly fashion.

  • UK-Prince, environmentalist Charles Windsor - exploited classes, agriculture

  • "Germinal"1840-1902 Emile Zola - abuses by Church lackeys

  • USA Pres-01, Revolutionary War George Washington - disloyalty to King George

  • "Earth Changes" 1877-1945 Edgar Cayce was the subject of much argument by conventia medical-men regarding the viability of his channeled cures. Typical of the profession, the doctors were prone to reject the cures not due to a lack of efficacy (the cures worked) but because the mechanism could not be explained

Blessings via devoted servants, the underclass, animals, the mother's relatives, physicians, military UK-Prince, environmentalist Charles Windsor, all aspects of medical practices and medicines

A priestly approach to human imbalances of poverty and sickness

a natural understanding of ministry toward the perpetuity of conflict in social relationships.

In times of war, bhagya L-9 in 6 in the governing 10th from swakshetra, suggests that the native will be on the winning side

A theology of extreme humility and service, preaching the reality of human weakness - and especially sensitive to the weakness (imbalance, 6) of priests (9):

Conflict with orthodox ideology

Conflict with professors, priests, preachers, theologians, father-figures. University culture seems too effete, too elite. One goes out from the ivory tower into the gutters, serving as a leader of movements, a legitimator of the acts of the poor, the criminal and the diseased.

Trouble via studies in theory, philosophy and religion. "theos" in Greek = "broad view". This materialistic native insists on practical cures for the material miseries, deals in cash money, "gets real".

  • Trouble through one's own religious beliefs: theory does not work out in practice.

Not normally an adherent of religious orthodoxy

yet one may be a profound historical agent who guides (9) and teaches in a time or scene of intense conflict

One becomes a priest of a new social order.

  • This path is difficult, but important.

Despite one's conscious wish to conform to the orthodox teachings of one's day, it becomes clear during the present lifetime that one is inevitably positioned in an adversarial angle toward the priestly caste and religious jargon of the day.

  • "Out on a Limb" dramatist, occult writer Shirley MacLaine has written many books, hosted discussions and conferences, and tried to legitimize her New Age principles and perceptions. However her philosophical writings are, whilst quite well-known (L-9 in 10th from swakshetra) also unfortunately generally deprecated = L-9 in contentious 6.

The predominant belief system, including the great philosophies of law, prescribed methods of worship, efficacious rituals, and sacred texts, are actually the agent of much conflict in one's life.

  • ;

The position is perplexing. Often the native has been chosen for a special destiny which specifically requires antagonism toward the existing belief system.

  • USA Pres-01, Revolutionary War George Washington, suddenly called into military leadership against his own law and king.

L-9 occupies 10th-from-swakshetra; a dignified angle. One obtains spiritual legitimacy in the eyes of many, as one is heard speaking a higher truth than the mere ritualists and self-protective officiants of bhava-9.

  • UK-Prince, environmentalist Charles Windsor, long prevented from marrying the woman he loves by the law of the Church of England.

  • England-Queen reign 1558-1603 Elizabeth-I was no friend of organized religion. Her reign of power was seriously victimized by religious conflict in England and Scotland. She had sex when she wanted to, without concern for the sacraments of priests.

Yet one's work is difficult, and the consolation of socially approved religion would be helpful. the native may wonder constantly if one has lost one's moral bearings.

The practice of medicine in particular shows a level of karmic reality which negates the 'pollyanna' preaching of many traditions.

Similarly those who work with large-scale social afflictions like broken economies that create poverty and false promises which generate fraud become distinctly aware of the corruption of the orthodox priesthood.

  • "Grateful Dead" 1942-1995 Jerry Garcia toured with a band of friends (11) for 30 years

  • Beatle drummer Ringo Starr toured with various bands of friends (11) for his entire career

A "very airy" combination. It is an excellent placement for dramatists who created an interactive, cooperative mental environment of interconnected narratives; esp those with a pronounced focus on portraying the "relationship narrative". Harmonious relations in most varieties of teamwork.

Generally the effect of this sibling upon the union will be favorable due to the generally good auspice of bhava-9; however look into the details of dharma bhava for the nativity at hand to determine whether the lord of 9 is a busy-body (3) or a wise-one (9).

The partner has strong religious wisdom or philosophical sensibilities (9), and in general the spouse will carry good fortune which attends that unique skill of domain-9: having the right assets available at the right time.

The father is a diplomat, advocate, attorney, deal-maker, negotiator, bargainer.

In particular the spouse has favorable writing and linguistic communication skills. The couple will enjoy traveling and learning about world cultures.

Healing via Transformation of Beliefs

The good fortune of bhava-9 enters the secretive, camouflaged realm of sudden, unexpected, forced changes in the randhrasthana.

Graha which are born into randhra bhava become 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 bhava 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 radical, frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing.


Father's life is typically somewhat distant (12) from the native. Father may have a dissolute personality, or perhaps his interests are highly confidential.

  • "Turtle Island" environmentalist poet Gary Snyder's father abandoned the family during the young boy's school years

  • the father of Gov-Calif 1975-83; 2011-2015 Jerry Brown was a previous multiple-term, popular California governor "Pat Brown". Like most career men of his generation, Pat Brown was rarely if ever available for fathering duties.

  • During his early childhood, "Tantra" 1931-1990 OSHO Rajneesh 's parents left him in the care of elderly grandparents (Shani)

  • The father of USA Pres-44, Barack Obama played some role in the governance of his own country Kenya, but played no role in young Barack's life. The father died when the future POTUS-44 was 20 years old.

  • The grandfather of "Sherlock Holmes" crime-fiction Arthur Conan-Doyle was a high-society English artist who connoitered with royalty. C-D's father was also a gifted artist who collapsed into severe alcoholism, mental illness, and epilepsy - and was institutionalized. The father's radical upheaval thrust the family into dire circumstances. Yet L-9 enjoys parivartamsha with L-8. C-D received a top professional education and travelled the world. While entirely forthright about his father's insanity, he also printed his father's drawings in his own books.

Father and fatherhood is dissolved into invisible identity-dissolving (12th-from), mysterious hidden (8) activities.

  • "Totem and Taboo" 1856-1939 Sigmund Freud had a deeply orthodox Jewish fiber-trader father who was perhaps engaged in secretive financial activities according to Shukra-Rahu-8 taking drishti of L-8 Mangala. His twice-widowed (8) father was married three times and the family moved often. Nevertheless young Freud received an excellent schooling foundation due to L-4 Guru-Meena in 4th-from-4th. Typical of L-9 in 8, Freud also abandoned his father's orthodoxy.

However if L-9 is well configured, the hidden father may nevertheless provide a considerable inheritance.

Patriarchal Orthodoxy

Orthodoxy (9) is dissolved (12th-from) when L-9 enters 8.

The native may proclaim a new religious approach.

Shocking, healing, transformative effects of religious belief - often deeply unsettling to habitual religionists

L-9 rules 6th-from-4th = adversarial (6) to customary habits (4)

  • "Autobiography of a Yogi" 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda = power of self-realization = no guru, no temple, no Brahmins, only the power of truth

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 2002-2012 Rowan Williams = championed the cause of ordained women priests serving as Anglican bishops (he lost).

L-9 in 9 = expansive and generous with a broad worldview

Blessed with an abundance of vital energies in the flesh-body


Generally not harmful for L-9 Budha, L-9 Chandra, or L-9 Shukra, but papagraha in the role of L-9 in 9 can be oppressive and Guru may suffer inflated importance of one's own beliefs.

Budha-9 swakshetra can be excessively detailed or narrowly defined argument in the attempt to fully articulate higher philosophical concepts. Such a native may produce abundant writing or verbiage which is often much ado about nothing.

Mangala-9 facilitates the native's own energetic capacity for innovation, invention, pioneering, engineering, new ideas-in-action. The downside is often a military, dominating, or aggressive father karako bhavo nashto featuring a paternal character marked by impatience, selfish acts, boasting or swaggering behaviors. Generally unfortunate for the father's well-being, and often signifies an early demise of the birth father. Potential indications of clinical narcissistic disorder (NPD) in the father-figures such as guru, preacher, professor, or religious indoctrinator.

  • The father of USA Pres-01, Revolutionary War George Washington died when young George was a boy. Washington always wanted to fight; he applied for several officer's positions with the British Army but was denied. His military prowess finally gained expression during the USA Revolutionary War, when his excellence in Mangala-Vrischika "hidden positions" guerilla warfare allowed the greatly outnumbered and undersupplied Americans to win the war.

  • The playboy father of USA Pres-38 "A Time to Heal" Gerald R. Ford abandoned his infant son and the child's mother. His mother remarried, and young Lesley Lynch King (Ford's original name) adopted the moniker "Gerald Ford" . Ford's bio-dad apparently expressed little interest in the boy but his stepfather Mr. Ford was at least emotionally available. Ford's Vrischika-Chandra in 8th-from-9th, indicates the stepfather.

L-9 = Guru in bhava-9 also tends toward conditions of karako bhavo nashto

  • "Mighty Heart" dramatist-activist Angelina Jolie = Meena-Guru + Mangala + Chandra-9. Ms. Jolie's father was known for his flamboyant (narcissistic) marital infidelities and making blatantly un-empathetic public statements about his children.

L-9 in Bhava- 10 = L-9 in the acquisitive, knowledgeable 2nd-from-swakshetra.

May produce a leader who brings value to the role and they earn well in the process. Win-win. Very broad spiritual viewpoint if the graha is auspicious.

Treats public leadership as a moral responsibility, brings compassion and philosophical awareness to the executive position.

Understands both the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.

Presuming that the dharmapathi is well disposed, L-9 in 10 karmadharma-adhipathi yoga is generally viewed as a wise (9) leader (10) due to globalized perspective and respect (10) given to religion (9) evidenced in leadership roles.

  • Italy-Fascist Dictator1922-1943 Benito Mussolini famously accommodated the Roman Catholic Church into his fascist anti-religion governments

  • India-PM 1947-1964 Jawaharlal Nehru + Surya + Shukra . Nehru worked continuously to integrate Hindu and Muslim communities in the New India.

  • USA Pres-11 "Manifest Destiny" James Knox Polk was an outspoken adherent of the Christian Methodism of his day. 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-10 yuti nebulous Ketu shows the hypocrisy and dogmatism of his beliefs in when applied to governance laws. He strongly supported slavery and "manifest destiny" a concept that many claimed was biblical but indeed had no basis in Christian scripture.

A similar Ketu problem-set afflicted the hypocritical governance behavior of Pakistan-PM 1988-90; 1993-96 Benazir Bhutto. Although professing the most devout adherence to the principles of Islam, she was accused of involvement in scandalous embezzlement (Budha, accounting).

During periods of L-9, as lord of the dissolving 12th from 10th, L-9 pulls away the energy needed to maintain the social reputation and the positions held at the top of the social hierarchy.

the Vimshottari period of the L-9 can unfortunately be rather unhelpful for maintenance of highest public respect.

Periods of L-9 may indicate a fall from high position due spiritually to the native's need for a period of sanctuary and private reflection.

It may look unfortunate from the materialistic exterior view but from the inside these era of withdrawal from the work roster of public duties can be a very good thing.

  • The governing leader who is also a teacher;

  • the religious preacher who is also a governor.

Excellent for Vrishabha natives.

One teaches not by words but rather via the regular pattern of one's public actions.

  • USA Pres-41 partner; USA Pres-43 mother Barbara Pierce Bush was not voluntarily engaged in public life. She preferred not to preach on social practices nor to make political comments. She delivered an example of quiet, family-centered dedication to parenting and spousal support.

Good fortune (9) through leadership responsibility.

Brings preaching and religious perspective (9) into the realm of corporate business (10)

  • for all his human shortcomings, "Imagine" Beatle 1940-1980 John Winston Lennon wanted his music to change the world. (Unfortunately, also nichha-Shani-9 world)


  • Ch 24, shloka 22

but one will be bereft of filial happiness."

Gains of income (11) from preaching, from patriarchy (pitri), from philosophy and ideology, from the father (9).


The father and his profile (9) may be a source of income (11).

Considerable patrimony if the graha is well disposed.

  • Pakistan-PM 1988-1990; 1993-96 Benazir Bhutto gained continuously from her father Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, from father's investments and reputation-legacy

  • "Berkshire Hathaway" mutual-funds capitalist Warren Buffett's father was a former US Congressman who later became a successful stock broker. Warren received the political connections and the capital reserves from his father's business. This patrimony he then expanded into a remarkably profitable franchise. (expansive Guru L-5 speculation in 11 + Mangala lord of Rahu-9 + Rahu drishti to 5, and more...)

  • celebrity publisher 1960-1999 JFK-Jr gained continuously from his father USA Pres-35 "Profiles in Courage" John F Kennedy, from father's investments and reputation-legacy. In his case the L-4 is also Mangala-11; he gained from both his mother and his father.

  • UK-Princess Anne Laurence, from her father UK-Prince Consort Philip Mountbatten = father's investments and reputation-legacy

Alternatively, gains

from ideological and indoctrinating behaviors (9)

  • USA Sen-LA, Gov 1928-1935 Huey Kingfish Long proposed a radical new ideology of capital redistribution "Share Our Wealth" from which he gained expansive (Guru) political influence

  • With the same enthusiasm as Senator Long yet a different ideology, USA Pres-40 partner Nancy Davis Reagan vigorously (Mangala) helped to promote the market-driven capitalistic, anti-public-welfare ideology of her step-father and later her husband and his financial supporters

from teaching religious and philosophical subjects

from teaching in university or temple regardless of the precise subject.

L-9 in Bhava- 12= L-9 in the customary, rhythmic, habitual 4th from swakshetra

Favors teaching (4) of the Old Ways (4) of religious knowing. However to be recognized, Shani-12 must teach in a "sheltered instruction" environment such as a retreat center, intensive residential programs, hospitals, refugee camps, in distant lands, teaching directly on the astral plane during dream-time.

Fear-mongering Shani-12 can signify "negative fantasies" which verge on the paranoid.

Transmission of methods of divination and imagination.

Teachers of charity, compassion, and self-dissolution. Private study of sacred scripture.

May bring the full fruition of philanthropy.

Abundance of Private (non-material) Blessings


Weakens the father's influence, often by the device of physical distance. Dad is dreamy, dissolved, only appears when the child is sleeping, or the child only sees him in the dream realm. Dad may have foreign assignments or be otherwise "far away".

Father is lost in fantasy pursuits, talking with spirit guides and ancestors. Or, stationed in a foreign land, inaccessible to the child who needs his presence. Or, father's vital energy is dispersed in bedroom affairs, clandestine operations, sanctuary, hospital, ashrama, dormitory.

The professor, the preacher, and the pandita all suffer a similar fate. No matter how famous the father may be to the public audience, no matter how high his visibility or reputation, no matter how wealthy or important he might be to the government, what extraordinary books or sermons the father might have written -- he does not vitalize the child.

  • USA Pres-06 "American System" John Quincy Adams was the son of USA Pres-02 "Thoughts on Government" John Adams. Ideologically and administratively, the father and son shared many habits and viewpoints. However, according to the conditions of their time in history, neither man had much "face time" with their fathers. The fathers were nearly always away from home on important government business, and the young sons communicated with their fathers mainly via literary correspondence.

To the child, the father is a phantom, appearing in a hazy field of dispersed and nebulous particles.

  • USA Pres-41 George H. W. Bush was the son of materially wealthy and politically powerful USA Senator Prescott Bush. While his father was a very high profile internationalized player, the son was merely a child -- not the strong focus of his ambitious father's attention.

Mother might need to become both father and mother to the child who has L-9 in 12. If the mother (child's Chandra) is ill disposed, the child grows up with negligent or absent parents.

Dissolves the benefits which might have been delivered

  • by the father

  • by the patriarchal belief systems (9th = 11th from 11th = system of systems)

L-9 in the vague and dreamy 12th from swakshetra

  • relationship with the father, guru, and priestly religion is somewhat fuzzy, but the meditative practices and reflective religious imagination are much benefitted

The lord of Guru's natural 9th Bhava- goes into Guru's natural 12th Bhava-s.

  • Favorable for expansion of one's interest in matters of philosophy, religion, world travel

  • however true wisdom is so privatized and imaginative and so dependent upon guidance from good spirits that one may entirely disregard the temple discourses and the university philosophy in pursuit of one's own interior vision

  • thus while a highly religious personality one is an outsider to the world of organized religion,

  • rarely a full approved priest or professor, with a marginalization of ritual-priestly status measured by the strength of the graha

Religious practice and philosophical wisdom delivery is privatized.

Emphasis on meditation and private prayer, personal readings and private philosophizing.

Reduces public piety and ceremonial observance, but may deepen the intuitive communication with the divine if the L-9 is strong.

  • Not favorable for the father since L-9 represents father and becomes dissolved in the astral realm of 12.

Das comment on "The lord of the 9 is in 12."

"Pursues spiritual liberation.

  • You believe in the hereafter.

You are generous and spend money for others' welfare

  • but suffer for lack of parental guidance

  • and good luck does not come easily.

You have to work hard for what you get.

  • There may be arguments with the government

  • or you may frequently suffer penalties or fines. "

"The lord of the 9 is in 12, and the lord of the 9 has at least one beneficial placement attribute."

"You may lose your wealth. "

"Policy of Kindness" 14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso

  • Dzogchen: The Heart Essence of the Great Perfection by,

  • translated by Thupten Jinpa and Richard Barron,

  • Foreword by Sogyal Rinpoche, edited by Patrick Gaffney,


What if we feel an unbearable compassion for the suffering of other beings -- especially animals, because it is often more obvious -- yet we have not developed the wisdom to deal with it properly?


This is all the more reason why, now that you have developed that feeling of 'unbearable' compassion toward others, you should try to increase your wisdom, and intelligence, in order to deal with the actual situation.

  • This is why practitioners on the bodhisattva path are encouraged not to be satisfied with just an idealistic idea of compassion,

  • but to put that ideal into practice immediately.

So I believe that when you follow the bodhisattva's way of life, it is possible to match your compassion, at whatever level it may be, with an active kind of interaction with others ."

Essence of Buddhahood permeates the minds of all sentient beings.

"Policy of Kindness" 14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso

  • Healing Anger: The Power of Patience from a Buddhist Perspective.

  • Geshe Thupten Jinpa (Trans.).

" ... Maitreya, in his text the Sublime Continuum, gives three reasons on the basis of which one can conclude that the essence of Buddhahood permeates the minds of all sentient beings.

First, he says that the Buddha's activities radiate in the heart of all sentient beings.

  • Now this can be understood in two different ways: one is that we can understand that in every sentient being there is a seed of virtue,

  • and one could see the seed of virtue as an act of the completely enlightened, compassionate Buddha.

But one could also see it in deeper terms, that is, that all sentient beings possess the potential for perfection.

  • Therefore, there is a kind of perfected being inherent within all sentient beings, radiating.

  • So one can understand it in these ways.

Second, so far as the ultimate nature of reality is concerned, there is total equality between the samsaric state and nirvana.

Third, we all possess a mind which lacks intrinsic reality and independent existence,

  • which allows us to then remove the negativities and delusory states hat obscure it.

For these three reasons, Maitreya concludes that all sentient beings possess the essence of Buddhahood."
