articulation of argument

Argumentation - litigation - medication of imbalances - medical treatments - accusation - exploitation - crimes - complaints - usury - calculation of debt - categorization - explanation - analysis - diagnosis
Logical argumentative analysis composed in conflicted, litigious, accusative, and medical environments:
Budha occupies 1st and 4th from His natural bhava 3+6
"Narrative of Problematizing"
Talking, gesturing, reporting, writing, painting, tool-using, technology-applying, arguing, criticizing, explaining, instructing, training, short-term, near-goal travel and constantly interacting with others, regarding
Ari bhava contains the incarnation's current scheduled-for-cleanup workload of disagreement, doubt, and broken promises. Budha-6 the "problematizer"= both strong and difficult to maintain contractual agreements, including the marriage promise.
Excellent for journalistic media production re: social ills such as poverty, addictions, exploitation, disease, and domestic abuses.
In the bhava of social conflict and loss of agreement, the mind generates thoughts of animosity, class-conflict, and victimization. Thoughts are saturated with "reasons for" conflict and exploitation; followed by a litany of reasoned solutions to reduce these.
There is often tremendous Anxiety in the mind; and ironically the stronger the analytical intelligence, the deeper and broader one's restless worries are spread.
Budha-6 due to characteristic problematicity can feel beset by the victim mentality or enslaved into the service of victims.
On a positive note, Budha-6 analytical skills may be fruitfully directed toward professional service in fields of medicine, debt and finance, policing and crime, and intellectual probing such as muckraking and social critique .
Commercial business success may be obtained through the analytical skill set in all the classic Bhava-6 endeavors.
Sexual communication, fertility, and libido are disturbed by anxiety and body imbalance.
Receiving massage, practice of mental calming techniques and removing toxins from the diet (meat, coffee, alcohol, other drugs) from the body will help in case Budha-6 is emerging from the karmic cycle of seeing "life as a problem". However Budha-6 is usually convinced of the accuracy of one's perceptions, and rarely interested in these remedial measures.
Karmic debt and repayment
When Budha occupies the maha-dushthamsha, considerable karma repayment = on schedule in regard to explaining, describing, crafting, reporting, announcing, and messaging activities.
Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of publication and argumentation environments in order to burn off the karmic ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this life-sustaining business of team-work and group-think which produce the outgoing narrative.
A broken yoke
In matters of 6, particularly when 6 is inhabited by graha, the self does most of the mental work in within partnerships, including the one-to-many partnership of self-vis-a-vis-a-group. The small-group unit whether siblings or co-workers has a karmic script to run away with most of the energy of what should be jointly agreed contracts.
Honesty may be inconsistent. One may respond with lying and denial if Budha is not well-disposed by rashi or there is pernicious incoming drishti. One may be obliged to talk about matters of servitude, debt, medicine, illness, exploitation, class conflict, and war.
Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet work-team confirmation and collaborative think-tank approval of the true importance of services rendered will rarely flow back in.
|Lower expectations = better health||
As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's siblings (esp a younger one), any sort of training and skill-craft apprenticeship; short-term travel, neighbors, and most essentially group-work. One's own workplace environment is affected by the script of exploitation and imbalance caused by mentalized makers of litigious and accusatory argument.
Yet, 6 = swabhava of Budha, and Budha is adaptable. It is not a crushingly difficult placement, but rather a contentious one characterized by conflict over who should get credit for ideas.
The key to mental (Budha-6 ) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for logical investment in the workplace communications environment. No matter how quick (Budha) responsive (Budha) or crafty one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's problematizing skill are not intended to acknowledge the gift.
Bhava-6 is a toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized and often warlike environment full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.
|LET’S NOT COMPLAIN
Giving” in True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art
by Chögyam Trungpa, p. 85
"Let's not complain about the past; it is such a waste of energy. You could do a lot of things for humankind if you could come out and be precise.
Let us face the world without wearing sunglasses. Take off your glasses and perceive the light
You can do so much, not only for yourself but for others. You could contribute so much help and service to people who are suffering, who are trapped in all kinds of problems. "
it is unrealistic to expect validation 7 (paired weights) from the behaviors produced by karaka-graha in 6 (unbalanced weights)
Naturally, when Budha the narrative-manufacturer is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the siblings and cousins, as well as a rather chronic complaining habit about life in general. It makes sense to live in a way that does not require long-lasting verbal compatibility, that does not build unsustainable expectations of servants, employees or domestic animals and that self-honors one's extensive but unacknowledged behavior of defining and analyzing problems in workplace communications discourse and manual practice.
it is the nature of the mahadushtamsha that for Budha-6 with argumentative Budha in 6, the more one gives, the more 'mercurial others' will take. There is no opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory emotional contracts. Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the L-7 is strong. However the defining, analyzing, instructional, explanatory and cooperative team-work activities are subject to disagreement throughout life. For a purpose!
This person verbalizes conflict and articulates logical arguments regarding frustration, problematicity, and blame. Results depend considerably on Budha's lord because Budha is so impressionable.
Does not reduce the intelligence, but the nature of the verbal and written expression may be constantly problem-announcing. Budha-6 may be associated as the bearer of bad news.
bhava-6 as 3rd-from-4th = siblings of the mother.
Budha in 6 = mother's siblings,
|Victimization||One may feel victimized or wronged by younger siblings, by one's own mentality, by the statements of servants and employees, by talking, by youthful impulsiveness, by attorneys and advocates, by written documents or accusations made in court, by the agents of commercial transactions, by the hands, arms, shoulders, and lungs; by the intestines and by one's own thoughts about digestion.|
Tendency to misappropriateor steal items related to publication, argumentation, documentation, conversation; the words and ideas of others (plagiarism); drugs, domestic animals, and servants.
Alternatively, one may serve those who misappropriate or thieve, in capacity such as social worker, probation officer, other support for criminals grand or petty.
|Illnesses = Budha-6||Lung disease; injury to hands, arms, shoulders; mental illnesses
and disorders of exaggerated argumentativeness.
As always with the Satkona, the choice is serve or suffer. Budha-6 is a skilled social worker serving those abused and exploited. Also an excellent medical diagnostician and treatment planner with strong communications skills in a clinical setting. One who serves the ill is often protected from the worst effects of illness that might otherwise be predicted from the graha in 6.
Where the Thoughts do Linger
The bhava which is 3rd-from-Budha also creates a "landing pad" upon which the thoughts tend to dwell and linger.
Naturally, if graha occupy this "focus" bhava, the nature of the repeating narrative engagement with those thoughts will adjust according to the character of the tenant graha.

|Das / Behari says of Budha-6:||
"... Mercury in the Sixth completely upsets your physical and social life.
There may be physical difficulties, sexual experimentation, and marital incompatibility leading to separation, divorce, or sexual abuse.
Energetic mental worker missing the best mental outlet for your energies.
