Swakshetra Mangala in Vyaya bhava generates a
significant Kuja Dosha.
Yet, due to Sarala Yoga, Mrs. Roosevelt was able to
avoid the problems attendant upon splitting the large estate that she
shared with FDR; thus she retained most of her funding and was able
to continue in a public service partnership with her husband
even while he was notoriously unfaithful (L-6 neechcha Shukra + Rahu).
She conducted a private sexual (Mangala, 12) life
according to her own preference for accomplished male and female
companions (Mangala with Chandra, Vrischika). Children are somewhat
alienated (L-5 in 12) and marital harmony is utterly lost (not only
L-7 in 12 but more importantly Shani/Mithuna/7). However the private
life and clandestine relationships conducted in bedroom or
distant-land sanctuary are psychologically, emotionally, and sexually
complex and rich.

Budha in bhava-12 is an overall unfavorable

internal mental chatter is deranged by extreme

destroyed by the combination of Vrischika Budha in 12 along with

Nevertheless an agreement is available due to

For a female nativity, strong Guru/9 = much
frustration and difficulties in the relationship to both
husband and father .
Men who take the karmic roles of husband
(Guru) and father (9) look generous, wise, and often charismatic
on the outside, but within their personal relationship to the
female native they behave in an arrogant style that refuses any
behavioral limitation. A know-it-all, jovial exterior but
inwardly a very selfish style.
In Mrs. Roosevelt's case is severe, due to
exacerbation of Mangala-ruled Surya in 12.
Her dashingly handsome and rich father was
utterly profligate and died of alcohol poisoning in an asylum.
Her equally profligate husband, despite his
extraordinary personal charisma, and his "expansiveness" outside
of marriage resulted in mistreatment of his wife.

No incoming Parashari drishti, but yuti
Rahu makes for amplified troubles with women.
Combined with the neechcha Chandra, many troubles
from women of all ranks and varieties, from the mother and
mother-in-law to secretaries, daughters, and lovers.
Shukra + Rahu - much trouble from women, inability to feel
beautiful - yet loved by the public (10)
Dignity in 10: Despite
unfortunate house-lordship, Shukra in the prominent karma bhava,
house of leadership and iconic representations of elite or governing
figures, gives Mrs. Roosevelt tremendous visibility at the
top of the governing elite (10). Her appeal to common women
at a time of national catastrophe (the Great Depression and WWII) was
exceptionally strong. It was her specifically non-glamorous,
sensible, and plain style which allowed those suffering from poverty
and conflict to find in her a role model and guide.
She bore indignity with dignity -
and was much loved by several generations of trouble-bearing women
because of it.
Shukra as lord of all non-trine, non-kendra
bhava, is not a weak benefic.

enjoys uchcha status yuti Mangala - suggesting her
husband's high responsibilities in times of great conflict.
Shani/Mithuna/bhava-7- habitual infidelities of both spouses. Shani in Mithuna/7 per se
= notoriously difficult
for marriage, as it brings the L-2 for second marriage into the house
of the first marriage, i.e. the malefic lord of 8th-from-yuvati
enters Yuvati. When combined with the damaged marriage-karaka Shukra,
the prognosis for a conventional, monogamous marriage is grim.
However, a non-conventional marriage did emerge and the partners
served their nation brilliantly at a time of tremendous need, despite
their personal travails.
One benefit of the L-3 in bhava-7 can be that the
partners are able to remain in conversation however strained, and
that a sibling-type bond may be adequate to replace the lost intimacy
of marriage. The uchcha status of Shani in navamsha suggests that her
husband maintained respectful and goal-oriented communications with
his public-partner wife and that both parties placed public duties
above the comfort of their own personal preferences.
Shani rules no trinal
house from either Dhanusha lagna nor Vrischika Chandra.
Therefore Shani is not a weak benefic.
Rahu in bhava-10 gives the effect of the
