  • "War and Peace" Christian Anarchist Leo Tolstoy inherited from his aristocratic parents a 4000-acre agricultural estate containing human capital = hundreds of serf families

  • "Thriller" 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson bought a large estate and developed it with many children's entertainments = Karkata-Shukra occupies bhava-7 4th-from-4th

Karkata dislikes large groups and electronics (6/8 Kumbha) and loves the near and dear, the home-made, and old pre-modern way of life. Shukra-Karkata is very sentimental, loves the land of birth, and likes to stay home whenever possible.

  • "Siddhartha" 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse moved into a crumbling, old, small castle in rural northern Italy after his first divorce. He fell in love with the land and its farming folk; there he began writing in a state of harmony between mind and body, and to paint as well. He was balanced.

Shukra-Karkata seeks to partner (Shukra) with those who are parental, caretakers;

who love their mothers; like to have a happy home and live there; who values lands and properties and who will care for these and nurture; who love the oceans, estuaries, and ocean-side habitats; who love the past;

those who dislike large impersonal networks, social change movements, mobs of fans, and futurism; dislike a life geared toward material goals and achievements, (Karkata = 6th-from-Kumbha).

Sensual pleasures through the breasts, chest, heart-chakra, center of back, torso, embracing and holding fast to the chest.

Aesthetic love for:

above all, the Mother

  • "Thriller" 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson was known to have been close to his mother. His Chandra-2 places Mother as the anchor of the family.

Shani = L-3-from-Chandra = commerce

Mr Trump used to complain that his wives were unfortunately all brilliant businesswomen; which he respects (Shani) and understands (Shani = L-7 = physical experience);

but what he prefers, according to himself, is a stay-at-home partner-mom who is dedicated to family, home and hearth. According to him, this dilemma is the reason why, despite his conservative social-political values, he feels restless in relationships and has multiple marriages.
