  • favoring colors of blood-red and black

More details about the male's taste can be derived from knowing the two bhava which Shukra will rule from lagna and from Chandra.

Shukra-Mesha can be problematic for a male who seeks partnership with a female. Shukra = kalatrakaraka. The woman's character features traits of competitiveness, boyishness, adolescence, and a taste for winning.

Naturally this partner seeks dominance, often at a physical level. The woman may be stronger than the man, faster, more sporting, more physically responsive, and more instinctual. She may be a better dancer, better climber, better skier, better athlete. She may win most battles within the partnership and she may be impatient of his weaknesses.

Typically this female wants the partnership (Shukra) to win (Mesha), not just herself. She will push, prod, provoke her partner while trying to bring out the winner in him. If he is self-confident the marriage can be a highly energetic success but a male with low-power of Surya or a weak Mangala can feel dominated this hot-blooded woman.

Male native with Mesha Shukra in context of a Kumbha lagna and Simha Chandra.

  • He will enjoy the company of women with Mesha traits, and in particular the female companion will exemplify the two domains, 4 and 9, which Yogakaraka Shukra commands from Kumbha lagna. Her gracious presence will contribute to Shukra-Mesha 's material enjoyment of home and world travel; likely she will have quite a good education.

  • From the Simha Chandra+ L-3 and L-10 Shukra is less favorable; emotionally such a male native can be predicted to face challenges from the wife's siblings (3) and her commercial undertakings (3). If Shukra is compromised, effects of 3 may include the drain of losses from education or purchase of a too-luxurious home.

  • Nevertheless there are 10th-house benefits from her ability to raise his social rank in their community; pleasure from dignity of married status.

Pleasure Stimulators (Shukra)


  • sensual pleasure from muscular, athletic and competitive behaviors,

  • physical or primarily self-focused love relationships

  • proactive negotiations toward contract agreement

  • loving actions involving the head, skull, flesh, blood

  • seeing the colors dark red, fire red, and black

  • sensual innovations, inventions, birth, being first

  • physical sports activity with the beloved

Dislikes, distaste, disdain:

  • Kanya = 6th from Mesha

Shukra-Mesha prefers simple, direct, independent, competitive, self-motivated action. Dislikes disagreement (Kanya) and will take physical action to avoid disagreeable conditions.

Dislikes any type of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (physical, social, emotional).Would prefer to avoid exploitation, litigation and accusatory discourse (6) whenever possible.

Dislikes servants, the unmarried condition (Kanya) and the mother's relatives.

Rather than enter into the complex, unpleasant, and inharmonious discourse of marital problem-solving, the Mesha-Shukra prefers direct action of physical movement. Shukra-Mesha usually prefers to simply"move on" to the next marital relationship.

Unless Kanya subha-graha are present (for example an uttama-Budha) Mesha-Shukra's aesthetic dislike of marital argument often results in walk out or run away.

This one prefers to move forward quickly after the competition has ended. For nativities that show additional pointers to multiple, possibly impulsive, marriages , Shukra-Mesha can be an exacerbating proactive factor.

  • Seven Year Itch 1926-1962 Marilyn Monroe = 3 marriage s before age 36

  • Easy Rider 1936-2010 Dennis Hopper = 5 marriage s

  • "Leyla" balladeer Eric Clapton = remarkable number of liaisons

  • Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney = 3 marriages
