A Golden Opportunity
Randhra = an opening, a window, a port.
Guru = a golden, auspicious guide.
In bhava-8, Guru delivers a Golden Opportunity which may be veiled, covered or disguised behind the appearance of surprising upheaval and sudden changes, conditions of death, unexpected divorce or death of partner, shock and trauma, forced separations, fears,
Female's partner karaka = Guru
Often, the female native meets her life partner in a secretive but privileged setting. The partner's identification with confidential information is important to her, and the partner's hidden assets, secret knowledge, or inherited wealth - or perhaps tantric or alchemical skills - may form the basis of the union.
The marital partner does things his own way, which may be a hidden way. Spouse may be involved in tax evasion or have significant inherited money.
Regardless of the external conditions of the union, the female will retain a respect for the power of secret knowledge, and a belief in its importance in her life.
In a male nativity, broad permission to conduct extramarital relations with almost no restriction, and no scandalous social consequences.
Spouse = large-bodied, friendly and optimistic (so long as Guru's rashi is favorable) and often a teacher.
Spouse = religious-natured. Dogmatically religious perhaps in an unfavorable rashi, but spouse exhibits a compassionate intent.
Good for global businesses especially related to education or children, and for trading in books and religious items.
Wealth increases after marriage because Guru casts drishti upon three dhanasthana = 11, 1, and 3. Spouse brings dharma or good luck into the marriage.
On the down side, the spouse's jovial self-entitlement can be so expansive that less attention is given to developing the private relationship of marriage; the native may feel neglected if the spouse is too concerned with humanistic activities or ritual.
For a female nativity, benefits of hidden alliances
Brihaspati = karaka for the male partner or husband. When Guru occupies bhava-8 of a female nativity, associations with male partners may be veiled in secrecy. The husband is often involved in tax-sheltered assets or management of occult treasuries.
If Guru is auspiciously placed, there is a good deal of secret wealth, both capital wealth and treasuries of knowledge, that may emerge from these mysterious relationships. Guru is welcome in a natural bhava of Mangala. If Guru also enjoys a hospitable rashi, the male partner's family may be quite wealthy, and should the lifescript feature a post-marital settlement such as alimony that settlement will be generous.
For both the male and the female, there are subtle benefits to Guru in bhava-8 . Although children are less predicted, even while matters of Guru's two rashi bhava are drawn into a cycle of sudden, forced changes, the native will enjoy providential wealth from unnamed sources.
One is privy to covert, confidential, unknown-source, or secret knowledge, which one may use for the enjoyment of life at all levels.
Putra-karaka in bhava-8 = less favorable for children, but not impossible. All factors must be considered before issuing an opinion when Guru-8 nativities inquire about future children.
death in an is attended with ritual ceremonial honors, attended with wisdom. If Guru's lord is favorable, death is attended by the high priest giving valuable ritual support to the transition.
Shani in bhava-8 or Shani drishti to randhra bhava may damage or delay your inheritance, even while this drishti extends your lifespan.
|Guru-Meena in bhava-8||
Guru-Meena in bhava-8 travels frequently across that dangerous tantric bridge between the material realm and the astral realm.
Due to ever-increasing encounters with the conditions of death (8) usually quite conscious and supported by spiritual guidance one may be called back to astral life rather early in the incarnation. Decreased longevity.
"If in a female's horoscope Jupiter be in the 8th,
and will be gluttonous."
comments on Guru in bhava-8:
"... a filter which permits past religious impulses to manifest only in terms of traditional belief systems.
... becomes learned, industrious, interested in the scriptural knowledge of your tradition and the higher values of life;
you practice severe penance
Nonetheless, the desire for sexual union drives you to marriage,
The spouse may come from a religious concern.
[excellent for career in]: brokerage, occultism, dream psychology.
Without patrimony, fortune, effluence, happiness, wealth.
Your residence and body are not stable and stationary for long.
Has longevity; but impaired health.
Maintains the family traditions and culture. Steady and well-formed.
you are average and low, servile, gloomy, irrational, immodest, inert and lean.
You visit the best pilgrim places;
fickle; void of spouses and wealth. Intelligent. Imprisonment may occur, or the feeling of it."
