Mercantile Budha in The financial wealth y 2nd and 5th from swakshetra. Budha-7 is usually a money-maker via skill of crafting contracts and alliances.

  • the objectified narrated experience of contracts, alliances, agreements, items of mutual interest, law courts, partnering, bargains, deals, balance support and diplomacy, marriage, matches and pairs

Excellent placement for

counselors, diplomats, attorneys, negotiators, and those whose success depends on exchange of valuable advice

spokes-mouth for subconscious voices


  • "300 Important Combinations" Jyotishi 1912-1998 B. V. Raman * travelled the length and breadth of India - to provide consulting and advising services in regard to marriage and business decisions.

Budha-7 in any rashi = an excellent placement for a barrister, solicitor, attorney, contract-maker

advocate for victims, those oppressed, those who lack their own voice

alter-ego expression of the unvoiced inner self of others

deal-maker, peer counselor, partnerships

  • Moral Majority" political televangelist Jerry Falwell created political partnerships in his religious mission that "married" conservative moral agenda to modern secular governments

  • Oracle Database Larry Ellison + Surya + Mangala + Shukra + Guru * built a empire of sales contracts

Affluence via marriage alliance (7)

typically Budha-7 partners with persons who are crafty, shrewd negotiators, writers; spouse is attached to a younger sibling and often communicates with the sibling

wealth (2 + 5) from explaining, describing, organizing, classifying, planning, arguing, reasoning, calculating, making announcements, going to meetings, writing reports and documentation of the negotiations, setting schedules, publishing, managing (Budha)

all these Budha-ish activities flourish in the business of making contracts and brokering deals.

The adult native is typically an attorney solicitor barrister advocate counselor advisor negotiator deal-maker match-maker.

If spouse is also in the contract-making line of work, much wealth in the partnership and the happiness derived mainly from "talking shop" within the family.


Spouses may develop a sibling-style relationship. Either partner may express an openness to alternative pairings. Budha-7 may appear to have an ambidextrous sexual identity due to Budha's mercurial, fluent adaptivity.

Budha-7 = wealth embedded in the original marital estate therefore the urge to dissolve the partnership solely on basis of sexual fluidity is much reduced by attachment to the money.

Budha-7 may remain formally married while experimenting with other intimate arrangements.

Due to a variety of the dictum karako bhavo nashto (matters of the house are damaged by the residency of the karaka for those matters) :

When Budha = sexual communication = bhava-7 = mating, genital sexuality = the result may be that sexual enthusiasm sometimes fades out unless Budha occupies Mithuna (or some other additional planetary boost to the animal instincts).

Also enhanced proclivity to engage in extramarital hook-ups even while the marriage is idiomatically talkative in a cheerful and habitual family style. Married partners may telephone, email, or speak several times each day as a custom, thus the extramarital connections are often unsuspected the partners.

Budha + Mangala

Kuja is the worst enemy of Budha (worse than Chandra)

  • therefore if Budha yuti Kuja or Kuja drishti to Budha all of the effects expected from Budha-7 will materialize

  • however these effects are complicated by, energized by, and often conflicted by competitiveness sexual pursuit and argumentative behaviors within the core alliance

  • in professional negotiations Mangala + Budha in 7 produces some aggressive adversaries and the native develops an incisively shrewd style of doing business

Deal-maker. Commercial success in the world of crafting detailed agreements, making trades, articulating and keep terms of contract. Most types of partnership are interesting and auspicious. (With special favor granted to those partnerships which are engaged in activities signified by Budha's lord.)

Spouse = also analytically minded, and spouse likes to talk. Karaka for marriage to a lawyer or counselor. Sexually knowledgeable, but the libido is sensitive to the mental workload. Generally favorable for good sexual and verbal communication in marriage.

"If Mercury is in its own house in the 7th house or in the 7th amsha,

gives a learned and happy husband."

~~ Hora Sara, Ch. 25, Shloka 40

A youthful and chatty spouse. Budha-7 is often an attorney or negotiator, one who represents the interests of others. Aids sexual communication. Busy-busy, gifted in handling information. Both partners are mentally active and usually engaged in profitable business.

Not good for Mesha lagna or Vrischika lagna, where Budha becomes L-6+L-8. F

Mithuna lagna, the spouse becomes a twin: typically in the same business/profession as Budha-7, with very similar mentality.

For Kanya lagna, immature relationship behavior: spouse may be childlike or dull-witted, and the native who also lacks mental sophistication (because detailed-oriented Budha is overwhelmed in cosmic-view Guru's rashi) may belittle their spouse.

However normally Budha in bhava-7 is good for partnership communication, and beneficial for trading in information, documents, concepts and ideas, plans, adolescent items, and all types of advising.

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.

thoughts focus upon third-from-Budha = dharma bhava-9

Doctrine, priestly teaching,

temple discourse, sangha,

philosophy, wisdom

sacred texts, exegesis,

dharma, Higher Law, phenomena

world travel, global affairs

father, professor


university culture, social philosophy

higher scholarship

"ways to get wisdom"

~~ Bhrigu Sutram

Ch. 4 Shloka 48-56

"If Mercury is in the seventh house and the lord of the seventh is weak or is situated in a malefic house or in conjunction with malefics like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu, there will be loss of spouse.

In a female horoscope the above disposition will cause loss of spouse and the native herself will suffer from leprosy and will be ugly in appearance ."

  • "Easy Rider" dramatist, artist Dennis Hopper = Budha + Surya + Mangala = 5 marriages

Das /Behari says of Budha-7:

[BPL note: spousal qualities may vary with the rashi of Budha. Spouse's family history is best seen through 2nd-from-7th. Female spouse family = 2nd from Shukra. Male spouse family = 2nd from Guru].

"... Mercury makes you very diplomatic, able to relate well with every type of person.

Your relationship with the spouse is as harmonious as with other business partners; the influence of the marriage partner on the attainment of social status is considerable.

... makes you attached to playing around sexually, or rather, you have a hard time making the marriage commitment for some reason.

  • You may be impotent.

  • Your spouse is a living beauty.

If Budha does not conjoin the Sun, spouse is most attractive.

  • The level of sex desire or performance in some way is not compatible with the spouse.

  • Feels defeated and shy.

  • You are saintly.

  • The spouse is comely and modest.

    • Blessed with many children.

    Large and aristocratic family of the in-laws.

    • You are sharp, handsome and dignified;

      • the spouse comes from an affluent family.

    • Good-natured, luxury loving, honest and faithful.

      • Good looking, learned, gentle, sexologist; respected.

      • Generous, courteous, noble and prosperous.

      Your spouse is wise, coming from a middle-class simple family, quarrelsome; rich.

    • You are well established.

      • Gain from sale and purchase.

    • Spouse is intelligent, quick, eloquent, critical, young, beautiful and nervous.

    • Worries and anxieties after marriage.

    • This Mercury is favorable to mother.

    • You enjoy riding; are philanthropic and saintly."

  • Das comments:

    • "Sagittarius is in 7, and Mercury is in 7."

    " Mercury creates a kind of helplessness.

    Marriage becomes merely a show of social respectability, while in private you may suffer from sexual debility and be unable to satisfy a lusty partner."
