Lovely person with a gentle humor and soft, generous body. A female may almost certainly have children whom she greatly loves and richly supports (barring drishti or Surya/5).

Generosity of spirit. Particularly helpful for certain lagna:

Splendid for singing, declamations, reciting poetry, and development of personality related to multiplicity of languages.


Guru-1 gives expansion and generally the physical body expands considerably (except when Shani drishti cast into Tanu bhava). Associated with diseases of water retention, overtaxing the digestive system, and lack of muscular movement.

Stout examples:

Stoutness reduced by a Shani drishti into radical lagna:

Even one who was slender or athletic in youth may struggle to preserve their adolescent leanness (Budha) as maturity develops the expansive tendencies of Brihaspati.

Expansive fleshly tendencies may be adjusted if other graha occupy the lagna.


Guru-1 naturally prefers the easy way of doing things. Shani drishti to lagna may provide more discipline and Shani drishti to Chandra may provide more emotional reticence. However normally the Guru-1 placement is an "open door" into which stream opportunities and easy access to wisdom. It is an inherently religious placement. Even in times of great sorrow, Guru-1 grants easy access to the consolation of philosophy.

Brihaspati in radical lagna generally maintains positive expectations of life, and does well in the life via developing good intentions and good cheer. Exceptionally generous. (However Guru is constrained in a rashi of Shani or when accepting drishti from Shani) Appreciated by others, including the gods. Happy, jovial, attractive, affluent. Without other work-ethic drishti, may become an easy-going Couch Potato.

In lagna = 11th-from-3rd, Guru indicates gain from siblings, from communications, from expansive and inclusive mentality. (The physical body is the result of mental processes on the causal plane.)


As the karaka for language, Guru in Tanu Bhava indicates a natural facility with human languages, both spoken and literary. Even lacking support from formal education (i.e. troubles in bandhusthana) Guru-1 often indicates that child who demonstrates easy fluency in a variety of tongues.

With drishti from Budha or Shani, such a gifted natural linguist may also be inclined toward study. When disciplined study is combined with the natural ease, Guru-1 can yield truly stupendous accomplishments in language, literature, linguistics and general humanistic understanding of civilization and culture.

Guru-1 is inclusive, expansive, and so philosophical that the native may be nearly incapable of discriminating against those from less fortunate backgrounds. Barring drishti from malefics, charitable and generous by nature.


Regardless of the socially recognized accomplishments, one holds a sincerely philosophical view of human culture and civilizations, in which language plays the essential role of communicating truth (whilst never itself being the truth).

Even under very difficult circumstances, the Guru-1 native is well liked. Many infractions can be tolerated by the superiors.

Due to charitable (Guru) acts in parallel lives , special capabilities flow into the social-physical attribute-package (body) from the two bhava ruled by Guru.

However if Brihaspati is afflicted by conjunction with either Rahu or Ketu, the fruitful fertility of Guru may be altered.

  • Wikileaks internet publisher Julian Assange = Guru Vrischika = special capability of 11 and 2. Also gifted in matters of distributive networks and community engagement (11) while gaining easy access to secret (Guru Vrischika) to knowledge (2). Despite negative pressure upon him (threats are to be expected in all matters Vrischika) Mr. Assange means well, and he is protected by dig-bala Guru-in lagna.

  • "Friends" dramatist model Jennifer Aniston = Guru Kanya yuti Ketu. Despite its less-than-ideal kendra-adhipathi-dosha (master of two kendra but not a trine-lord) Guru-Kanya normally provides easy gifts in the special behaviors of bhava-4 education and bhava-7 marriage. Although Ms. Aniston has enjoyed a prosperous, high-profile career in modeling and drama, her education ended with high school and her marriage was attenuated. Nevertheless she has received many splendid opportunities and is well liked by the public, having been been called "America's sweetheart" for decades.

"A benefic in Lagna will give a pleasing appearance,

while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance.

Felicity of the body will be enjoyed,

if Lagna is drishtied by, or yuti with a benefic."

Female's partner karaka = Guru

Often, the female meets her life partner in an athletic competition or body-musculature intensive setting, such as hunting, or fashion modeling, or other body display.

The partner's identification with physical genetic lineage is important to her, and the partner's ability to continue a particular genetic line, which generates a specific type of lineage appearance, may form the basis of the union.

  • First marriage for female characterized by focused attention to the physical appearance, muscular athletic fitness, "battle-ready", and iconic social roles.

Regardless of external conditions in the union, the female will retain respect for the partner's ancestry and belief in the importance of continuing the lineage.
