BPHS Chandra Mahadasha
in Labha Bhava-11
Moon in the Eleventh House
Familiar Systems; Group Routines
Comfortable (Chandra) to the Community (11)
ethnic, rhythmic, customary networks
Chandra-11 needs constant emotional participation in economic earnings behaviors and confirmation of friendship with other gainful networkers.
Emotionally reactive economic sensibility. Not a planner; responsive.
Feels comfortable, grounded and secure when engaged in income-gaining, goal-achieving, or social participation activities. Likes large groups, communities, conventions, assemblies, rallies, esp when there is some sentimentally evocative theme for the gathering.
Chandra-11 is a "joiner" of many associations and distributive groups. May refer to community or marketplace associates as "family" (Chandra).
Affinity for the marketplace of domestic products such as homewares, vehicles or land and water; landed properties esp farmlands; educational and caretaking products; in particular when the income is earned in the school or in the house.
The mother may be a community-minded personality, a networker or social organizer; always interested in earnings. Typically a friendly personality with a deep need for stable income.
Emotionally nourished by reaching material goals.
Sentimental attachment to the elder sibling, and often the primary earner in their home.
Chandra in Bhava-11
Rooted in economics, ecologies, networks, systems, the marketplace, the agora = large scale social participation, opportunity progressive movements
emotionally attached to the father's relatives (3rd from 9th)
compare to: Chandra-6, emotionally attached to the mother's relatives (3rd from 4th)
One feels connected, absorbs and internalizes the rules of the marketplace, and reflects the external components of profitability and fruitfulness which are present within one's environment.
Chandra-11 reflects the structure of the marketplace.
Affinity for complex inter-linkage of regulated associations = brighter or dimmer mirroring according to the fullness of the Moon, and Soma's proximity to Rahu.
Vriddhi-Chandra does not create (Surya) networks of association but simply reflects (Soma) the existing distributive systems structure in the environment at birth. (May also create social economies if Surya also in 11.)
Especially close emotional attachment to an elder sibling, paternal uncle, or mentor.
One's Mother = socially active in community affairs, causes, and fundraising events.
Chandra-11 = emotionally most comfortable in relationship to the elder siblings and mentors, with socially progressive friends and fellow-travelers in a large-group setting, and when living in a habitually well-regulated, systematic fashion.
Prefers to live according to principles of economic order.
Similar to Kumbha in general, often a vegetarian or a "tea-total" (no alcohol) practitioner, unless Shukra occupies 6).
Natural scientific environmentalist.
Naturally suited to matters of economics and large-scale marketplace policy
Emotional engagement with elder sibling
Strong emotional attachment to
Emotional need for
Chandra-11 can signify an emotionally gainful, comfortable and sheltering relationship with the step-mother (8th from 4th)
Step-mother = disruptive influences upon radical bhava-4. If there is some destabilizing, upsetting factor in bandhusthana which might suggest sudden frsth-and-rebirth experiences within the childhood home, then Chandra-11 = auspicious for forming a protective relationship with first stepmother.
(additional steps indicating a subsequent stepmother = 8th-from-11 aristhana (generally unfavorable) and in the event that the father has multiple remarriages the next stepmother, fourth following the birth mother, would be calculated as 8th from 6th = vyayabhava also unfavorable generally.)
Even minor disruptions to the home routine, such as going away to school, are indicated via bhava-11. In the case of Chandra-11, one may benefit from protective females and caring teachers in the environments which have followed the sudden breaking of bhava-4 roots.
7th-from-Chandra = Bhava-5.
The partner = creative, gifted in performance arts, and enjoys children.
If Bhava-5 = strong, the union can be emotionally pleasant union, glowing brightly with the light of romance, children, and amusement. The partner enjoys theatre of partnership, having a role to develop and boast about, being centrally important to the Chandra-11 native.
If bhava-5 is afflicted, partners can be self-centered, needy of constant attention and praise, focused on personal recognition, and ego-driven.
Typically, mate is deeply involved with children and creative arts (or games or politics) while Chandra-11 is more focused on marketplace earnings, building networked associations, and material accomplishment.
Chandra-11 ABSORBS the great energy of the marketplace and large-group achievements into oneself.
This can create some emotional pressure when it is time to attend to one's own self. One's own truth may become lost in the truth of a great social movement.
Needs friendship, affinity for communities of interlinked relationships, develops networks of concentric circles of mutually gainful association so that their need for social validation can be met.
Most at home in the Agora, orchestrating discussions in the assembly. Attends rallies and conventions, thrives in very large groups connected in physical space or electronic space or in the timeless marketplace of philosophical ideas.
Marketplace mobility not = superficial amusement. Chandra-11 likes to connect with others, but one always has a purpose of achieving an end or goal.
Attached to the elder sibling or father's younger sibling (or both). Mother is strategically social and very goal-oriented, but rather conventional in outlook.
High expectations of one's own capabilities, and major accomplishment usually do accompany Chandra in bhava-11. Success gauged by earnings and marketplace connections. Financial income through the mother or her attitude or advice.
Belonging (Chandra) to numerous clubs and associations, supports community development, and joins with others to promote social causes -- according to the rashi.. Fundamentally aware of the connections between people and ideas. Friendships are instrumental but not exploitive; the goal of all human association is mutual gain. Natural instinct to extend one's networks of influence and profit.
and Chandra bhukti
|Chandra periods generate emotional experiences characterized by Chandra’s temporal bhava-11. The steady, rhythmic, ritualized, repeating-cycle of feelings is centered in economic engagement (often involving marine assets such as fish or estuary lands), social networking, and rootedness in the customs of the local settlements. Chandra periods are generally gainful.|

Final outcome depends significantly upon:
The man may experience his mother as a fundraiser, a community organizer, a peer-network leader; a setter of goals and earner of achievements. Mom is practical, work-oriented, encourages her child to follow to rules into order to earn the rewards.
Mother functions emotionally similar to an elder sibling, as a shepherd and coach in the marketplace of goods and ideas. It is generally a cheerful relationship although not especially warm or deeply connected emotionally.
All women from this man's perspective share a quality of friendship and the women are seen mainly as elements in his wider network of community relationships. He may seem a bit scientific or detached in his relationships with women, but he remains essentially friendly.
Highly social personality, protective and parental, with a large local network that interweaves friends and family. Emotional urge toward goal-setting and mobility in the marketplace, but concerns of family and food often slow one's progress.
The elder sibling is parental and caring. Chandra-11 receives emotionally sensitive advice from those who have traveled the marketplace before one. Chandra-11 intuitively follows elder advice to prioritize family and security, and to stay near the sea.
Chandra needs strength from other more public graha to assist worldly accomplishments. Like group activities, esp. near water. Highly profitable for Mithuna lagna. Well-liked and friendly, according to the rashi.
Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude = 6th-from-Chandra
When Chandra occupies Bhava-11, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-11th, or bandhu bhava. Depending on conditions in Bhava-4, there will be affective difficulties due to disagreements with property owners, schoolteachers, and other defenders of the cultural roots.
The lord of bandhu will produce emotional servitude (giving more than one receives) during its Vimshottari period, and the "guardian class" such as parents, school teachers, and upholders of local traditions are a particular source of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork. One tends to be a global thinker with Chandra in bhava-11, therefore those bound to the local view are rather annoying. The fourth marriage (Bhava-4) is particularly problematic.
Marriages for Chandra in bhava-11
spouse brings forth emotional content of native's bhava-5
Barring troubles in bhava-5, the first marriage is amusing, politicized, fertile, and fun
first marriage is emotionally triggered and sustained by deep memories of 7th-from-11th = bhava-5:
second marriage is emotionally triggered and sustained by deep memories of 2nd-from-11th = bhava-12:
third marriage is emotionally triggered and sustained by deep memories of 9th-from-11th = bhava-7:
"...you gain easy success.
With the Sun in this position you have to work hard and the reward is not commensurate with your exertions. But in the case of the Moon, money flows to you easily, without much effort.
You are blessed with a very efficient spouse and have many well-behaved children. Your social circle is amiable and friends occupy important positions in life.
This is the house of friends, hopes and wishes; gain from business, profession; jewelry and elder brothers.
You are frank, tactful, handsome, modest, noble, reputed and lucky.
Surrounded by sincere friends and riches -- renowned and talented.
If the Moon in this house is waning, in depression sign or in the sign of a malefic or enemy, you are denied all the aforesaid pleasures and gains.
Moon in the 11th house gives more acquaintances than friends.
