Why the animosities between neutrals and benefics?

Guru vs. Budha

  • Budha is discriminating. Budha's overarching purpose is to stimulate more and more exquisitely detailed mental discrimination in the thinking human.

  • Guru is non-discriminating. Guru is fundamentally opposed to mental discrimination. Guru teaches the highest dharma, at which level of perception there is no role for mental discrimination! At the level of Brihaspati's teaching, the dharma includes all, embraces all, honors all, understands all.

  • It is important to appreciate that Kumara is The younger one. It is necessary for the native to complete Budha's tutorial along the spiritual path before one can be in a position to apprehend the massively awesome dharma of Brihaspati.

  • Nevertheless, the philosophical teaching program of the Great Sage is permanently at loggerheads with the mental training program of the Quick Minded Adolescent.

  • Rather ironically, at the higher levels of consciousness, one must "unlearn" some of the values of the lower education. For example, it becomes necessary to surrender attachment to the distinction between human "right" and "wrong". But this surrender should occur only AFTER the distinction has been acquired so that the native can apply the discrimination skill in human society as needed to protect those with lower consciousness.

  • Naturally, Budha enters the nichha state in Guru's rashi of Meena. Interestingly, a nichha-bhanga parivartamsha Budha - extremely non-discriminating or childlike thinking projected to a high level of clairsentient awareness (Meena)- may be found in the nativities of some great teaching mystics such as Albert Einstein.

Good and Not-So-Good Rashi Environments for each Graha
Rashi

(zodiacal sign)


Rashi Pati
Graha which see This Lord as a Friend

Friendly Environment for:

Positive Effects Graha which see This Lord as a Enemy

Hostile Environment for:


Negative Effects
Mesha* Aries
Mangala
Surya, Guru, Ketu Surya's independent, confident behaviors flourish in uttama Mesha; Guru's expansive, inclusive wisdom burns brightly, and even separative Ketu enjoys Mesha's sharp, clean cut Shani, Rahu
Shani's regulatory, resistant behaviors are disrupted in nichha Mesha; while Rahu's sneaky risk-taking * too fast and too aggressive to escape detection
Vrishabha * Taurus
Shukra
Budha, Shani, Rahu, Ketu Vrishabha promotes the Treasury and sensual pleasures. Budha's pleasant conversation, Shani's orderliness.

uttama-Rahu's lust for wealth, and even Ketu's unbounded intake all flourish in this indulgent setting.

Surya, Guru
Surya's divine faith limits golden truth to the shape of golden coins;

Guru's wisdom-preaching channels into false cults of capital wealth and visual beauty.

Mithunya* Gemini
Budha
Chandra, Shukra, Shani, Rahu Mithuna promotes every type of information exchange, from bookkeeping accounts to sexual encounters. Chandra's emotional needs can be satisfied by a steady flow of information.

Shukra's develops relationship curiosity, while Shani enforces an order upon the tale-telling but does not stop the story.

Rahu the Poseur thrives on new information and uses it to propel Himself to an illegitimately higher station in life.

Kuja, Guru
Kuja converts conversation + media communications into weaponry. the native speaks sharply and gossip can become an issue.

Priestly Guru's wisdom produces a trivial, mentalized understanding of life.

Karkata * Cancer
Chandra
Surya, Kuja, Guru Surya's paternalistic behaviors flourish Karkata home + homeland; uttama-Guru's compassionate wisdom does its caring best in Karka.

Although Chandra's quest for security does pair well with Kuja's wealth-pursuing powers in the Chandra-Mangala yoga, nichha-Mangala = a covert, guilt-pandering, underwater explosion, and may sexualize (Kuja) the parenting (Soma).

Budha, Shukra, Shani, Rahu, Ketu
Budha, Shukra, Shani, Rahu and Ketu = incapacitated in the emotionally oversensitive, security-focused environments of the Moon.

All to some extent suffer from Chandra's emotional bondage, and slip into manipulative behaviors including guilt-mongering, according to their own tools.

Simha* Leo
Surya
Chandra, Kuja, Guru Kuja and Guru are exceptionally strong in Simha, where they promote a regal quality of divine confidence, faith, and ideals.

Chandra in Simha is less maternal but it benefits the woman who must be both mother + father, or mother + business executive, or mother + king.

Shukra
Harmonious human partnership becomes nigh on impossible for Shukra to accomplish in self-centered, idealistic Simha
Kanya* Virgo
Budha
Chandra, Shukra, Shani, Rahu Kanya's logical arguments dissolve agreements but the methods of Chandra (emotional bond) Shani (public law) and Rahu (surprise) are not harmed by petty disputes.

Although Shukra's relationship behaviors benefit from Budha's communicative skills, chronic disputes do harm the nichha-Shukra, which does much better in conversational Mithuna than in prescriptive, argumentative Kanya.

Kuja, Guru
Mangala uses logic as a weapon, so that critical bickering becomes a behavioral issue. Guru's religious wisdom deteriorates into petty argument and catechism.
Thula* Libra
Shukra
Budha, Shani, Rahu, Ketu Thula promotes agreement and balance, therefore Budha's bargaining skills and uttama-Shani's scheme of social rewards + punishments flourish here. Surya, Guru
Surya's independent, divine-centered behaviors are channeled into human partner-pleasures in nichha Thula; Guru's religious wisdom similarly descends into sense pleasures and capital wealth.
Vrischika* Scorpio
Mangala
Surya, Guru, Ketu Vrischika encourages penetration and discovery. Therefore Surya's independent, confident willpower and Guru's expansive, fearless wisdom burns brightly in the sign of mystery, while fearless Ketu enjoys a Vrischika plunge into the unknown . Shani, Rahu
Shani's conformist regulating behaviors are upset by instinctive competitive Kuja while Rahu's sneaky risk-taking * too fast
Dhanushya* Sagittarius
Guru
Surya, Kuja Dhanushya's environment promotes ceremonial religion and philosophical preaching. Naturally, Surya's confidence in divine truth and Kuja's vigorous pursuit of the prize do well in this setting. None
All graha can express their portfolio actions adequately in Dhanushya.
Makara* Capricorn
Shani
Shukra, Rahu, Ketu Surya
Surya's confident, independent, self-constrained in the law-and-order hierarchy
Kumbha * Aquarius
Shani
Shukra, Rahu, Ketu

Surya


Surya's creatively independent, self-centric behaviors are severely constrained in complex, regulated systems
Meena * Pisces
Guru
Surya, Kuja None
All graha can express their portfolio actions adequately in Dhanushya.
