Marriage implications

In the nativity of one in the husband role, Budha-yuti-Zukra is a karaka for marrying the same wife twice. Zukra represents wife, and Budha is a doubler.

(In the nativity of one in the wife role, Budha-yuti-Guru is a karaka for marrying the same husband twice. Guru represents husband, and Budha is a doubler.)

Typically a couple who marries, divorces, and remarries each other has the husband-doubler and the wife-doubler in their nativities. Often there is a significant drishti from Shani into the doubler-yoga also.

The more common implication = two wives, and the second wife = Kumara younger

  • POTUS-22-24 Interstate Commerce 1837-1908 Grover Cleveland = Zukra-yuti-Budha-11 suggesting two marriages. The first marriage was created via the birth of a son from a union with a widowed lady Ketu-yuti-Shani-7. The second marriage to POTUS-pair-22-24 Needlework 1864-1947 Frances Folsom Cleveland = Budha = student. She was a daughter of one of his cronies. At the time of alliance, Frankie was a 21-year-old college student while sitting POTUS GC was 49. Bhava-11 = social networking, Frankie's specialty.

Generally Shurka-yuti-Budha is a peace-maker combination that mixes Zukra's diplomatic skill with Budha's capacity for interpretation.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton * master of the spin. She has served as a highly respected negotiator. Some of Mrs. Clinton's peacemaking skills have been exposed during her husband's 'sexual pursuits' crises (there were several). She diplomatically chose to not divorce but rather to re-craft their marital agreement. Zukra + Budha-yuti-Surya-Vanika = bhava-1 personality. Interpretive and descriptive skills (Budha) are an important factor in the continuity of the marriage contract (Thula) and indeed a facilitating skill in the countless trusts and agreements that she has negotiated since graduating from Yale Law School in 1973.

Nichha Budha yuti uttama-Zukra = complications of wife-figure, marriage vows, legal contract documents, equity-disequity

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson = uttama-Zukra-11 lagnesha + rogesha, yuti nichha-Budha-yuti-Surya Also, Surya-11 parivartamsha Guru-4 supporting his political career as a pro-slavery frontier land-speculator and planter. AJ had only one formally avowed wife, a legendary beauty in her day, Rachel Donelson was a bundle of contradictions. Their marriage attracted scandal because she was not legally divorced from a previous husband (nichha-Budha = unclear information). Early in their married lives, Rachel took refuge (Meena) on their slave plantation named "The Hermitage". She developed protective obesity aided by the imbalance of Surya rules 6th-from Zukra (health concerns of wife). From within their farm, she managed the finances (Zukra) . Combined with her family assets, AJ's plantation revenues + profits from his frontier land speculation (Guru-4-SImha) were substantial enough to fund his political career.Immediately after winning the POTUS election of 1828, Rachel died of angina. AJ formally remained a widow for the next 18 years. AJ's POTUS administration was characterized by fractiousness. He became fixated on The Petticoat Affair involving the wife of a fellow politician, stalling all other urgent matters. (nichha-Budha unclear thinking). AJ's constantly reshuffled his cabinet of advisors resulting in stalemates due to petty disagreements (Zukra advisors handicapped by nichha-Budha) .AJ is generally evaluated as one of the worst presidents in US history.


Das * Behari commentary Budha-yuti-Zukra

"Enlightened, cheerful and artistic.

  • Wealth,

  • interest in politics,

  • skill with crafts ,

  • interest in philosophical literature,

  • good speaking ability, singing ability

  • and other good qualities in general."


Shani and Zukra are good friends and Budha gets along with them as a neutral.

Speech style = simple, and proletarian, but also smooth and generally pleasing. Sound patterns may be regionalized or"folksy", but the implication of harshness or vulgarity that would result from Budha-yuti-Shani alone, is much smoothed and more attractive due to Zukra.

Total effect of the speech delivery and mentality is friendly, a bit intellectually restrained or mentally simplified, but pleasant.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush was criticized for sounding like a "simpleton" to those with high intellectual standards. However his speech was generally well-liked by the common people, who found his style attractive due to being unpretentiously simple.

Depending on the bhava ruled by Shani and Zukra, education can improve the written and spoken expression dramatically. the native may be cautious of verbal expression and occasionally sounds a bit too populist for the educated ear. Yet the audience is usually forgiving and the trustworthiness of a common style of speech is a valuable asset.

Budha-Meena * nichha yuti Zukra-Meena * uttama yuti Surya

POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson uttama-Zukra + nichha-Budha-yuti-Surya (11) +++ Surya-11-parivartamsha-Guru-4

"Pleasure to Communicate, Organize and Plan"

The male is attracted to women of talkative and literary nature. She is articulate and has many female friends.

"Twinning" behavior in marriage. The male may feel most comfortable with his beloved when in a sibling-type relationship, when planning or studying together, or in shared-narrative conversation.

Sharing thoughts and shared writing process are highly valued qualities of the partnership. This tends to be an actively sexual marriage with the"sexual conversation" being woven into the whole flow of the interpersonal narrative. Not necessarily promiscuous but does love a good conversation!

If Zukra receives drishti of Budha = similar but slightly less chatty effect.
