in Randhra Sthana 8
Princess Damayanthi talking to a
Royal Swan messenger
Shukra-Vrishabha * swakshetra
Shukra-Kumbha-8 * Karkata lagna
Shukra-Meena-8 * uchchamsha
Shukra-8 enjoys the aesthetic of secrecy, confidentiality, masking, camouflage.
Pleasure from the discovery of hidden resources.
Occult, occluded, cloud-cover = veiled agreements
Enjoys discovery, revelation, mysterious relationships
Luxurious pleasures of Occult Mystery, Hidden Liaison, and Secret Wealth
Appreciates the value of cycles of self-destruction and rebirth
Aesthetically attracted to the Conditions of Sudden Change and Death.
Relationships may begin and end suddenly. "I didn't see that coming."
Prone toward secret alliance (potentially extramarital,
but also extra-political e.g. outside one's party loyalty
Generally the spouse's family (2nd from 7th) = wealthy (Shukra) but as always other graha in 8 can adjust the wealth-ratios - Shani-8 = scarcity
Shukra-8 may 'marry hidden money'.
wife may enjoy an inheritance from her parents, a legacy from a decease previous spouse, or other hidden resources
typically (but not always) the wife has been previously married (she is widowed or divorced)
Female partner (if any) assists in veiling confidential information and hidden relationships. The marriage partner whether male or female participates in the cover-up.
Males = alternatively, prefer clandestine or mysterious "veiled" relationships
Environments = First Encounter with Partner
Shukra-8 meets the marriage-partner:
Shukra-8 may meets the partner in a secretive fashion or a cloudy, darkened environment, perhaps during a catastrophe or crisis in one of their lives. Commonly the catastrophe is related to the death (2) of an alliance contract (7).
Shukra in 8 likes to conduct relationships incognito, which can lead to a taste for cloudy, camouflaged environments and extramarital affairs.
However there is no inherent prediction for illicit conduct unless Rahu or Mangala = involved in matters of randhra bhava.
Predictions for outcome of randhra bhava should be confirmed via 8th from Chandra and effects of the current Vimshottari Dasha period must be taken into account.
Terms of contract
Human partnership in general is not a permanent component of the identity unless Shukra = lagnesha.
The marriage contract may mimic the conditions of death, so that Shukra-8 experiences the terms of the life contract as an act of surrender - often involuntary - to forces greater than oneself.
The rashi of bhava-8 will filter the spouse's invasive dynamic. Yet underneath the veneer of marital pleasures, there is an agenda for the lover to penetrate the psyche and control the behavior of the native . (Similar to the way the hunting Shaman is guided to penetrate the life-force psyche of the prey.)
The lover-partner is not always a human person. Sometimes the most intimate companion is a beautiful spirit being.
Shukra-8 may invite camouflaged guiding forces (8) such as spirit-beings to take control (8).
Women in one's life - friends, lovers, female relatives - share a psychologically penetrating attractiveness to some extent. Physical intimacy is an intense and potentially catastrophic experience.
incognito love relationships.
Shukra-8 prefers to hide even the conventional aspects of romantic relationships. However the relationships are rarely too placid. There is always something tantric and controlling about their lover.
One may show the public some sort of conventionalized facade, but behind the facade there is intense energy of psychic domination and control.
Benefits from investment in shared-resource pools. Likelihood of nice inheritance, barring hostile drishti.
Splendid placement for emergency medicine, shipwreck recovery divers, water dowsers, cosmetic surgeons, occultists and trauma healers.
Luxurious wealth of secret information.
Pleasure via psychiatry, surgery, confidential or discovery of hidden wealth. Hidden resource management = money laundering, off-shore banking, Swiss banks.
Pleasure obtained via the conditions of death, disaster, emergency and extreme transformations.
Women may be attracted to practice of midwifery, emergency medicine, or cosmetic surgeon. Both genders like secret love affairs.
Not an easy bhava for resident Shukra; yet one may become wealthy via gaining access to the capital of partners.
Wealth (Shukra) from undisclosed sources
money comes from undocumented sources, possibly through tax evasion
via inheritance from parents (8th = 5th bhagya from 4th parents)
One of the primary social purposes of marriage is to combine the material assets of two families.
When Shukra occupies 8 = in-laws, the spousal family may bring materially valuable assets into the joint assets of marriage.
Further, the spouse is generally quite pleased (Shukra) to make this contribution due to Shukra's agenda for equity. The in-laws will get a fair exchange value for their investment in the native.
The spousal assets are invested in the Shukra-8 native as a device for the spouse's family (8 = 2nd from 7th) to gain leverage (Shukra) in matters represented by Shukra, its rashi, and other conditions of the 8th bhava.
Shukra-8 indicates that either a considerable inheritance is expected, or the native will marry money (Laura Welch Bush).
Spends money (Shukra) for acquisition of:
Both male and female
Whether male or female, one enjoys an aesthetic attraction to obscure and occult knowledge, especially the understanding of hidden relationships between people, places, and things.
Not necessarily an indication of infidelity, but rather a signal that in this native's love life, there is more than meets the eyeJaimini Dara-karaka in bhava-8 = similar to Shukra in bhava-8
For both male and female,
|Conditions of Death = randhra bhava||
Flesh-death occurs in a pleasant place, attended with sense-soothing delights such as refreshing baths and anointment with fragrant oils.
If Shukra's lord is favorable, death occurs in a holy place, supported by harmonious companions and counselors.
Often, the beloved is present at time of death.
Gustatory Taste, Gifted Luxuries
Selecting a gift for the native with Shukra in 8?
These folks enjoy the pleasures of occult knowledge, discovery of hidden resources, and insight into the traumatic, sudden shocks of life.
If Budha accompanies Shukra-8, there may be an intellectual interest in the conditions of death-and-rebirth.
Accouterments of the mystery-loving life, such as gracious appointments for the emergency-trauma survival kit or other luxurious items of art and music which enhance the refinement of one's understanding of cycles of death and rebirth, will be much appreciated gifts.
Characteristics of the Environment where ones meets the life-partner(s):
Bhava-8 = a natural sthana of Mangala = an agent of mystery, discovery, sexual-pursuit, invasion, and psychic or physical penetration.
8 =12th from 9th = religion. The union may have all good qualities and yet orthodox religious (9) sanctification does not occur. There may be no public marriage ceremony.
Both genders are attracted (Shukra) to women (Shukra) who are secretive by nature, handlers of hidden information, or who work with dangerous, emergency situations.
Not always karaka for infidelity but even if one is faithful to one's own spouse, one will enjoy hearing the details of others' hidden love affairs and one will become a repository for secret materials and information, esp hidden wealth.
One may indeed choose a marriage-partner of any gender who has been previously married or involved in previous alliance, or is indeed currently involved in hidden alliances
|In a female nativity||
typically has very few female companions but those who
exist may be tantriki = trauma healers of a darkly attractive appearance or penetrating
The woman herself is a healer, and she be gifted in the practice of midwifery, surgery, alchemy, or the various arts of identity transformation.
her sexual and energy has penetrating, uncovering, unveiling qualities of the shamanic huntress. Pleasure from mysteries, secrets, emergencies, and hidden (8) indulgence (Shukra).
Excellent position for female healers and healers of females, such as midwives, cosmetic surgeons, psychiatrists, and occult practitioners.
In any rashi, the female native is somewhat self-destructive. Conscious rebirth is an excellent option.
Strong tendency toward incognito liaison; or if an artist, a secret art studio or hidden musical gifts.
In a male nativity:
For a male, Shukra = kalatrakaraka = significator of the wife.
The wife or lover is often hidden from public view. Due to 8th = draining 12th from 9th (public ritual) a male may take a female life-partner without the public vow of marriage = especially likely if Shukra is combust moudhya .
Or, one may prefer to conduct love affairs behind a veil of obscurity.
Male nativity is attracted to women whose influence generates conditions of profound life change. The woman may have hidden assets and she is willing to keep the relationship secret, at least for a while.
Often when Shukra occupies bhava-8 in a male nativity, the partner is married to another at the time of meeting or is divorced.
Often the wife has been previously married or committed to other partners. Due to the death-and-rebirth nature of randhra bhava, which involves alchemical transformation of an existing entity, it is not uncommon for the pre-marital attraction to begin when the wife is still involved with someone else.
In a male nativity, Shukra = natural Sthana of Mangala = a wife with penetrating sexual and healing energy. Wife = involved in secret matters, for example:
In any rashi, the wife is somewhat self-destructive.
Shukra-8 enjoys the particular challenge of "self" bhava-1 = 6th from 8, so that marriage and peer partnership is not as a rule very beneficial for one's life-vitality;
(terms of the alliance contract = adversarial to the health)
Periods of the L-3 = 8th from Shukra = can produce sudden announcements which shock and upheave the alliance
adversarial, conflicted 6th from Shukra-8 = tanu bhava-1
shocking, secret 8th from Shukra-8 = vikrama-bhava-3
"... libido is very strong, but it does not necessarily lead to promiscuity.
