Lord of Chandra's Nakshatra
A Leading Indicator of Partnership Compatibility
Attributes of the First Spouse, judged from lagna of house-7
Moon Lords are Identical = High Compatibility
Psychic and Exotic - success depends on lords of the nodes
Rahu + Ketu
Easier Combinations: Graha = mutual friends
Surya + Guru
Surya + Mangala
Shukra + Shani
Guru + Kuja
Neutral, neither friendly nor adversarial
Shani + Budha
Surya + Budha - basically friendly; Surya is usually the stronger partner
Shukra + Budha - basically friendly; Shukra is the more attractive partner
Shukra + Kuja
Shukra + Guru
Guru sees Shukra as an enemy; Shukra is neutral toward Guru. The Guru native may perceive the Shukra-ruled Chandra native as a workaholic [Bharani ] or an alcoholic lush [Purvaphalguni] or otherwise excessively materialistic. There is abundance in the partnership.
Mangala + Ketu
Mangala + Budha -
Mangala see Budha as an enemy; Budha is neutral toward Mangala. The Mangala-ruled native may perceive the mentality of the Budha-ruled native to be sneaky [Azlesa] or arrogant [Jyestha] or otherwise subversive. The Budha native carries on talking-planning-writing, regardless.
Chandra has no planetary enemies, therefore the Moon-ruled Nakshatra typically have no serious problems relating to others, at least on an intuitively responsive or emotionally instinctive level, in intimate relationships.
Difficult combinations = Lords of the two Nakshatra are mutual enemies:
Surya + Shukra = divine vs. human
Mangala + Rahu = passionate and violent
Shani + Rahu = de factoenemies
Shukra + Ketu = de factoenemies
The Shukra-ruled native will dominate, the Ketu-ruled native passively absorbs
Maximally difficult lunar Nakshatra combinations:
Surya-Shani = mutual enemies
Surya-Shani relationships = Adversarial
In a nutshell, the Surya-native, in the context of emotional relationships such as parenting, partnering, nurturing, healing, and soothing (Chandra) will tend to try to dominate with positive enthusiasm and self-righteous assertions.
The Shani-native will consistently resiSaint The Shani native over time "digs in" to a safe position and may be unable to change. The Surya person gets more and more frustrated, has outbursts (solar flares),
If Shani is, overall, an empowered graha in the nativity, one with Pushya Chandra, Anuradha Chandra and Uttarabhadrapada Chandra will at first take the path of least resistance, but as Surya continues His campaign of self-righteous idealism, Shani will more and more staunchly enforce the Law.
Prognosis for a successful Shani-Surya partnership
The Surya-Shani relationship can work if and only if the partners assume fixed roles. The Surya partner has an emotional need for uniqueness and kingship, and that need will be asserted upon the Shani partner who needs to assume the role of the subservient peasantry or the vast undifferentiated working class.
There is some advantage when the Surya partner is male and the Shani partner is female.
Unless the Surya partner is highly conscious, Krittika Chandra, Uttaraphalguni Chandra or UttarazadhaChandra all tend toward solipsistic criticism of the perceived inglorious or ignorant traits of plebian Shani; therefore the native with Pushya Chandra, Anuradha Chandra or Uttara bhadrapada Chandra would need to have the tolerance or fortitude to withstand Surya's egoistic onslaughts.
Much depends on the condition of Surya and Shani within the two partner's overall nativities, and other factors such as the condition of the natal Moon will also very much influence the daily emotional give-and-take between partners. However the Moon's Nakshatra lord does establish a deep instinctive and reactive emotional framework of needs and expectations which is unlikely to change fundamentally over the course of a lifetime.Therefore any partnership between these two adversarial groups of Nakshatra should be carefully thought out and legislated in the interest of justice, prevention of oppression (from Surya upon Shani) and good government.
