Vimshottari period of the lord of 6th-from-Chandra is likely to
contain a good deal of emotional stress related to the breaking of
promises and disappointed expectations. Whereas 6th-from-radix
lagna nearly always produces physical conflict, often internal to the
body e.g. dis-ease, the 6th-from-Chandratypically generates emotional
conflict within the core dependency relationships.
nature of the expectations
and disappointments, the nature of the
broken promise or failed contract, is revealed via the character of
the L-6 from Chandra, companions to the the L-6 from Chandra, drishti
affecting the L-6 from Chandra, etc. If the L-6 from Chandra is
relatively weak there may be little difficulty; however should the L-6
from Chandra be strong, expect the entire mahadasha to feature some
type of intractable problem (6) emotional in its basis, which resists
resolution during the entire period of the L-6 from Chandra.
The mahadasha of Chandra + bhukti of the L-6 from Chandra is
particularly distressing because childhood disappointments return.
agent of the disappointment is represented by the graha who occupies
or the graha who is the lord of 6th-from-Chandra.
If there are
graha in occupation of 6th-from-Chandra, or L-6 = exceptionally
empowered, the situation can become much more emotionally extreme in
terms of false accusations, tirades of criticism, exploitation and
mistreatment, servitude, victimization, and crime.
Unpaid or underpaid emotional labor
These relationships can be exploitive, invalidating, and exhausting. But
indeed, it is a privilege, if seem from the reincarnational perspective : )
During periods of the L-6 from Chandra, one develops an adversarial
relationship to the primary caregiver female (mother, wife, sister, etc.) or
if female one may attract an outside agent to mistreat oneself.

sustained periods of animosity and conflict.
L-6 from Chandra = an agent of "emotional servitude" which
permits payback of a past-life debt, acquired when one took more
psychic healing energy for one's own use than one returned into the
relationship, or into the universe.

make." When this equation is not balanced, an energetic debt accrues.
is a privilege to be able to repay this debt and return to the path -- but the
process of repayment is emotionally exhausting, as one will give out more
psycho-emotional energy into the karaka relationship than one is able to
receive in replenishment.
The graha which owns or occupies 6th-from-Soma is
notoriously problematic during their Vimshottari periods.

females, Guru in 6th-from-Chandra
or Guru in 6th-from-lagna may
indicate that that first husband is much prone to
illness in his own body as well as prone to
philosophical disagreement with the female.
first husband may have numerous good qualities, but amongst the
benefits one may find a strong tendency toward imbalanced
life conditions in the male.
woman with Guru in 6th-from-Chandrasuffers from a
repeating pattern of taking emotionally inharmonious or
"setback" type of decisions, often because
she is trying to "help" someone. This is not wrong, it is simply
karmic, but it is a truth for this female native that her first
husband will be a colossal handicap,
who drains the energy from marital agreement
(12th-from-7th-from-Chandra). He is much weaker and needier than
expected (6 = disappointed expectations), and the medical
implications of 6th-from are quite straightforward.
occupies 6th-from-Chandrahe is emotionally polluted due to
conflict with his own mother, or stuck in another variety of
trauma which will manifest as contentiousness, conflict,
and illness even while there is a general
good-will and philosophical viewpoint
expressed in the arguments.
6th-from is characterized by refusal to accept
legal and medical advice (12th-from-7th,
dissolution of advising relationships).
occupies 6th-from-radix lagna without adverse drishti, the husband
may be a successful physician or a wealthy divorce attorney, but
even so he will become ill due to his self-medication habits which can include overeating as a
response to conflict.
Guru in radix 6, as with Shukra in radix 6, both spouses
are implicated, and both will have overweight or some
variety of digestive overload. If Guru is lord of 6th-from
either lagna or Chandra the situation is quite fixed into
self-caused illness and cheerful but extensive incompatibility due
to principled disagreement as the level of weltangschauung -
The entire world view is incompatible. And yet, Guru is Guru
- he is a likeable fellow unless Guru is fallen or otherwise
is nearly always a separation in the first marriage when Guru
occupies the female's 6th-from - the male's scope of imbalance,
illness, conflict, and overall toxicity continues to expand (Guru)
until some vimshottari lord such as L-2 or L-8 or Ketu causes the
separation. However there is no call for divorce unless a malefic
graha such as Mangala or Shani, possibly the Sun, casts drishti
upon Guru. The couple live in a state of disappointment and
discomfort, always wishing it were better, and the spouse
may live with a chronic (self-caused) illness but the marriage may
continue indefinitely unless some stronger malefic interrupts it.
Shani in 6th-from-Chandra
whose nativity may indicate a second marriage, Shani in 6th-from-Chandra or
Shani in 6th-from-lagna = a
second husband who is much prone to imbalance
in his own body as well as prone to scarcity or
fear-based disagreement with the female.
Ironically this situation is much easier to live with, due to the
general rule of a bad planet in a bad house giving a good result.
Unlike Guru in a relative dushthamsha, Shani there is not trying to
be cheerful. Shani is sour, dry, fearful, and cold. Shani brings
material poverty via scarcity thinking, harsh survivalist realism,
age and its debilitation, and either a great respect for human law
or the punishment which comes from disregarding it.
Depending on Shani's disposition, the second husband may have the
illnesses of age and dryness, ailments of the bones and sinew, be
too attached to work and poverty, or otherwise somber and serious.
For the female these characteristics are a source of unhappiness
in the marriage; however Shani in 6 tends toward staunch
acceptance of the conflict as a structural reality of human nature
-- rather than any attempt to alleviate it.
is not predicted as one is inclined to simply live with the
disappointment rather than challenge it.
Although the parivartamsha of Chandra + Shani
eliminates most of the conflict, nevertheless the life
partner of USA Pres-38 Mrs.
Ford had significant public
political disagreements with her husband. She supported
women's reproductive and economic rights (Chandra, working
mothers) whereas her husband's policies were
conventionally conservative (Shani) favoring the rights of
men as primary household earners. Also despite his
athletic habits, President
Gerald Ford notoriously suffered from
physical balance issues.

him decades of criticism.
KETU = in 6th-from Chandra
Enemies are present, but one is barely conscious
of them. Tends to ignore adversarial signals. Invisibility of enemies
is corrected if Ketu is yuti another graha. Good for mental
composure. Could be victim of a surprise attack if Ketu's lord is
"Interior Castle" writer Santa
Teresa de Avila was the target of
edicts against her preaching, threatened shut-down of her
chain of reform-rule monasteries, and personal threats
against her life. However she was barely influenced by these
acts of animosity because she was so intently focused upon
her spiritual path. Her lifestyle involved so much
purposeful hardship (shoelessness "discalced", fasting,
dangerous travel) that whatever harm her enemies might foist
upon her, she expected to be able to disperse or dissolve it
(Ketu) with prayer.
with a confident cluster of Simha graha in the energetic
lagna, no doubt feeling (Chandra-Simha) that he had more
important things to do than worry about the unknown,
typically disregarded (Ketu) the presence of enemies. However with a powerful Mangala drishti upon
his randhra bhava, a violently motivated enemy attack caused
his untimely death. (Except in Jyotisha, it is not really
'untimely' but rather 'scheduled'.)
PM-India 1966-77; 1980-84 Indira Gandhi
had countless domestic enemies. She suffered multiple
threats upon her life; nevertheless she was able to evade
them by dispersing herself, changing her schedule without
notice, seeming to evaporate at time of impending attack.
Ketu also occupies bhava-8 from lagna which reduces the
lifespan only slightly, and predicts that conditions of
death will be occult, clouded, foggy, or veiled in secrecy.

Clarity, and Insight 25th
translated by Jeffrey Hopkins, co-edited by
"The foundation of the altruistic mind
of enlightenment is a good heart, a good
mind, at all times. All of us can benefit
from cultivating this; we should not get
angry, fight, backbite, and so forth.
When people engage in such activities,
they do so for the sake of personal concerns
but actually are only harming themselves.
Therefore, all of us need to do whatever we
can to cultivate a good mind, a good heart.
I am not just explaining this; I, too, am
doing as much as I can to practice it.
Everyone needs to do whatever is possible,
for as much as we can practice this, so much
will it help.
If you engage in such
practices and gain experience of them, your
attitudes and way of viewing other people
will change; then when a problem--which you
have encountered before--arises, you will
not respond with the same excitement as
previously, will not generate the same
This change is not
from something external, is not a matter of
getting a new nose or a new hairstyle, but
takes place within the mind. Some people can
withstand problems whereas others cannot;
the difference is one of internal attitude.
The change from putting these teachings
into practice comes slowly. After some time,
we may encounter those who tell us we have
changed; this is a good sign that the
practices have been effective. "
