Summary of Nine Graha Rulerships
measured from lagna * ligne * line of
Vrishabha * Sthaurin * Taurus
with remedial ratna recommendation
Surya = L-4
Great pride in one's home, garden, vehicles and the products of schooling such as diploma, license, exam pass.
Surya karaka = soul, unique self, awareness of the presence of Divine Intelligence. Ravi controls the childhood home, and one's subsequent access to social and emotional security, including education.
Surya = center-stage recognition. L-4 Ravi = prefers visible roles in realms related to kinder-kirke-kuchen.
Father * Surya = pitri-karaka
Father is often the primary parent. Often dad works at home, such as a farmer or home-businessman. Father is deeply identified with the local culture, its habits, seasons, morals and customs.
Father is related to matters of bandha-sthana-4, such as protection of the folkways home and homeland, structures, family care, shelters and fences, vehicles, schools and school-teaching, parenting, farming, fishing, caretaking, and nationalistic patriotic protective functions such as boundary guards and police.
include the schoolroom, the early childhood home, real estate office, kitchens, building construction sites, land ownership and stewardship settings, national and local defense headquarters, shelters that offer protective care of the elderly and the very young, and maternal-child care settings such as medical and social-work clinics.

"In the birth chart of Taurus (Vrishabh) Ascendant,
Therefore, Ruby is to be worn in the major period of Sun.
It will be otherwise also useful if Ruby is worn
Wearing a Ruby will bestow
Besides, other good effects of Ruby will also be felt by the native."
Chandra = L-3
A foundational insight in the understanding of Vrishabha nativities is to appreciate the emotional needs of L-3 Chandra.
"Saha" "with". L-3 Chandra is emotionally bound to the cohort.
As sahaja-pathi, Chandra instills an emotional need for cohort-confirmation of Soma's habitually protective, stabilizing behaviors. Typically the adult native performs some type of team-management role.
The Vrishabha native = emotionally identified with the workgroup, the team, the siblings, the ensemble, and the messaging behaviors of this group. One seeks to validate this bond through predictable, rhythmic, reliable daily communication (3).
In order to feel stable, grounded, and rooted in life, one must receive interactive response confirming the importance of one's ________. This signaling should be provided by the small-group ensemble in management contexts such as meetings, messages, conferences, and committees. Constant interaction of members who share a team mentality makes this native feel good.
The content of ________ is determined by Chandra's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti, as well as the gradually cycling relationships between Chandra and the current mahadasha-pathi.
Mahadasha of Chandra = typically a period of maximum interactive teamwork in a wide variety of business management roles which involve mentally engaged operational planning, scheduling, publishing, and commercial transactions.
In a more localized nativity, however, "management" may take the form of reliable and consistent domestic operations within the family home or farm or in local community roles such as schoolteaching or policing.
The management and communications roles in which one needs to be daily re-validated are rarely high-visibility (unless the L-10 or Rahu are very strong). In fact, Chandra prefers to move in the rhythm of the local environment. It is the soothing predictability of the daily teamwork routine rather than the excitement of celebrity which nourishes L-3 Chandra.
as ruler of 8th-from-8th, Chandra is a bit of dicey influence upon the life of the Vrishabha native.
Chandra must be very well disposed into order to avoid the extreme fluctuations caused by tsunami-quality churning of the wheel of death and rebirth.
Sibling relationships are strengthened but conditions of life for the mother are prone to sudden upheaval, and the possibility of extreme emotional upset for the mother cannot be ruled out.
Mother may be quite commercialized. She is likely to have her own business. She would enjoy the administrative arts, and the daily chat of sales, marketing, advertising etc.. No doubt she is a splendid conversationalist - as generally is the native as well.
Still be on the lookout for underlying emotional instability due to the double uncertainties of tidal, habitual, predictable Chandra trying to rule a natural bhava of quick-thinking, million-ideas-per-minute Budha and the sudden unexpected changes associated with bhava-3 as 8th-from-8th.
The highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra's assigned control of Budha's natural territory tends to infuse the mental habits with sensitive emotional feelings:
the native feels more than average empathy in mundane interactions, and has a more psycho-intuitive approach to training and administration than normal.
Even routine daily conversations are personalized. Native can be moody and sensitive to slights or insults, especially within the circle of friends and family. Needs reassurance that he is wanted on the team.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 92
"For the Taurus Ascendant,
Moon rules the third house.
However, if the Moon is in his own sign in the 3rd house,
Vital and competitive Kuja controls alliances, agreements, and private sanctuary. The spouse is naturally competitive, active, and sometimes perhaps aggressive (according to the character of Mangala in the Vrishabha nativity).
Spouse will work hard and play hard. Research (12) and physically vigorous, goal-oriented foreign travel (12) are favored. Sleep is less peaceful for these natives; the Vrishabha folk may take extreme measures to ensure one's sleep. Sitting meditation may be unfavorable due to mental restlessness; and bed pleasures are sexually (Kuja) activated.
Kuja dosha is less harmful for Vrishabha lagna because Kuja sends drishti to swakshetra Vrischika rashi, which tends more to give the spouse a strong personality rather than harm marriage relations.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 96
"For the Taurus Ascendant Mars rules 12th and 7th.
However, if Mars is in his own sign in 7th or 12th
wealth and prestige
|financial wealth|| |
There are four main wealth houses: 2 = banked savings; 5 = gambling or speculative wins; 9 = assets provided for acts of faith; and 11 = earned income.
Conversational and sexual Budha becomes a highly benevolent
L-2 / L-5 stored wealth graha for Vrishabha lagna. The sources of The financial wealth may be found in the bhava and rashi of Budha.
For Vrishabha lagna, presuming that Budha is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-5 Budha can generate considerable wealth through family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via creative genius, including children, speculation, theatre, romance, and games.
Kumara controls the domain of family history, wealth from hoarding and historical lineage values (2) and the domain of financial wealth from speculation, genius of divine intelligence, and creative production of children (5).
Budha is therefore a beneficial graha for Vrisha lagna, albeit the Kumara may function as a maranakaraka "maraka" timelord in the Vimshottari Dasha.
Vrishabha's other maraka = Mangala
Kuja is a natural aggressor. Kuja = generally more effective in the task of forcing (Kuja) the spirit to exit the flesh-body's field of material-social perception and re-enter the mind's alternate astral fields of perception as their primary frame of reference.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 99
"For the Taurus Ascendant, Mercury rules the 2nd, the house of wealth and the 5th a trine.
It will help in acquiring wealth
and the native will be blessed with children, intelligence and good fortune.
Guru = L-8+ L-11
Magical knowledge; expansion of the social, financial, and conceptual networks
Wise and expansive Guru brings abundant income, gains of financial wealth often assisted by access to secret or privileged information; generous and liberal friends; and assemblies gathered for purpose of receiving wisdom teachings.
For special effects of uttama-Guru in bhava-3 for the Vrishabha lagna only, please see longevity.
|Q: Will my kendra eighth Professor Guru in the karmasthana cause very bad trouble in my career? My home astrologer says that I could be poisoned by the in-charge if I try to get promote at work.|| A: L-8 Guru in karma bhava will not cause severe career trouble but rather Guru offers educational opportunities. You would be benefitted by learning to interpret hidden messages (such as body language) and notice subtle patterns in daily human behavior, including the psychology of those who believe that they must destroy others in order to gain their own success. You can easily learn the "people skills" to manage these creepy individuals but it is also true that constant vigilance is required because often these sorts of people are irrational. |
The greater significance of a strong L-8 in the 10th bhava of leadership = one acquires public leadership responsibilities for regulation of social policy-and-planning such as disaster preparedness, emergency response, and public education (Guru) to get whole settlements full of people ready for sudden, disruptive changes such as natural storms or earthquakes.
With L-8 Guru in 10, you have a generous and positive style (Guru) of directing people to respect authority (10) and follow the rules (10). As L-8, Professor Guru is an especially effective leader during times of social crisis such as an emergency.
Your psychic skills need to get stronger in this life. Public life in the government office is that place where your perceptive skills get tested. Professor Guru is trying to bring out your deeper intelligence about the mysteries of human motivation (8) . However the outcome is good. Everything produced by Professor Guru , even when the route is a bit hazardous, is good for the spirit.
In a female nativity, Guru = significator of the first husband
Vrishabha lagna or Vrishabha-Chandra indicates characteristics of 8 and 11 in the first husband. Tendency for first husband to be an abundant earner, gainful due to expansive friendliness, and well connected into regular networks of association (11). However as L-8 Guru connotes emergencies, intense and catastrophic transformation (emotional catastrophe, if Vrishabha-Chandra) the husband may produce sudden changes in the life of the native . While generous and inclusive (Guru) the husband acquires behaviors of secrecy and covert operations.
Favorable for a surgeon, psychiatrist, obstetrician, deep energy healer, or any professional who handles emergencies. If the L-8 function causes divorce, the couple may remain friendly after the legal termination of the marriage.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 105
"For the Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules the 8th and 11th
Apart from that, the lord of the Ascendant Venus is not a friend of Jupiter.
Sweet and sensual Shukra = also a disease maker, depending on His bhava, companion graha, and incoming drishti.
Shukra = the auspicious lagnesha while He is also lord of ari bhava. If there are dignified graha in 6, the Vrishabha native is often called into a practice of medicine.
If L-6 Shukra occupies Ari bhava, one becomes an agent of addiction to sweet foods, candies, ladies, alcohol, and numbing drugs.
In a male nativity, Shukra = kalatrakaraka = significator of the first wife.
Mahadasha of Shukra which starts with a double period of Shukra will bring out the 6th-house effects, particularly the dissolution of marital agreement (potential divorce) and illnesses related to sugars, including alcohol.
Bhukti periods of Shukra, when Shukra occupies the 6th-from, 8th-from, or 12th-from the mahadasha pati, are problematic in the same way.
Shukra is an especially difficult graha for nativities in which Shukra = L-6 as measured from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance):
If Shukra occupies bhava-6 in Thula rashi, success in cosmetic or reconstructive medicine, import-export business (esp. artistic, design, or structural) and work in foreign lands, service work in temples as social events designer, decorator, artistic designer.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).

"For the Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules the Ascendant.
Combination of Diamond and Emerald
L-9+L-10 Shani becomes Yogakaraka for 'Go' lagna.
One of the best characteristics of Vrishabha lagna is that hard-working and orderly Shani becomes the Yogakaraka L-9+L-10, and three bhava will receive the auspicious drishti of Shani as dharma-karma-adhi-pati. Three houses thus benefit from the drishti of the all-good ninth lord and the pretty-darned-good 10th-lord.
L-10 of course brings plenty of public responsibilities, and performing public leadership duties leaves one little time to pursue profitable personal business.
(For example, the author of Bhavartha Ratnakarasays that Shani cannot be a Yogakaraka for Vrishabha lagna. "300 Combinations" 1912-1998 Jyotishi B. V. Raman, the translator of this Sanskrit work into English, most strenuously disagrees; Raman says "of course" L-9+L-10 is a Yogakaraka. But then Shri Raman was famously not afraid of hard work.)
Despite His taste for austerity and karma-yogi character, Shani is a reliable guide to wisdom as L-9.
Although not as demanding and also not quite as powerful as L-4+L-5 Shani for the Thula lagna+ L-9+L-10 Shani for Vrishabha will slowly, via force of education and the discipline of the intelligence, produce a public servant of surprising leadership capability.
The spatial and social location of highly dignified and somewhat priestly duty performance is shown via Shani's bhava and rashi.
|Career|| Shani mahadasha empowers bhava-9 and bhava-10. |
Shani mahadasha may bring a series of respected, responsible positions in government or the very large corporations
However it is nearly always the case for the Vrishabha lagna that due to pull-back by competing interests in world travel and orthodox religion (9) that the native cyclically gains and loses a series of these positions.
Shani rules both the karmabhava for leadership roles AND the dharmabhava for loss-of-impetus (12th from) in leadership roles.
It is rarely the case for Vrishabha to obtain one leadership role and hold it for extended periods.
Rather, within a persistently financially comfortable and respectable range, during which the native holds basic decency and indeed a remarkably steady level of luxury (so long as Shukra is well-disposed) there is a cycle of gain and un-gain.
With Vrishabha the placid bovine, there is likely not too much ambition to "get to the top" but rather a pleasant, competent, lawful routine regularity of professional practice dignity that allows respect without too much pushing for recognition.
The most productive period for public reputation and social recognition occurs during Shani mahadasha; but along the path, each briefer Shani bhukti is a step toward your longer-term credibility in management and executive roles.
If the Shani mahadasha occurs during middle age (ideal for Chandra in a nakshatra of Surya, Chandra, or Mangala) then the career becomes quite dignified in maturity. There is no need to fight off competition or push against nature. Slowly and steadily, one rises into visible positions of social responsibility that are much appreciated and generally well-paid.
In a female nativity, Shani = significator of the second husband
| Vrishabha lagna or Vrishabha-Chandra indicates characteristics of 9 and 10 in the second husband. Tendency for second husband to practice ceremonially religious behaviors (9). |
The second husband as well as the native during this second marriage will be well-known or possessed of a high public dignity and responsibility in one's community (10). The husband-agent-2 is significantly involved in being a father, moral guide, and possibly an ethnic priest.
Badhaka-sthana = "harming" houses
L-9 Shani = badhesha
9th-from Vrishabha lagna = Makara-9
Sthira * Fixed lagna typically has some trouble from the father, guru, professor, religious or moral teacher, temple, religious teachings etc.
Periods of Shani may bring forward an agent in the figure of a father, father-role, guru, priest, professor, or some abstract personage known through wisdom-teachings, who (often inadvertently) causes harm to the native via punitive or materialistic behavior, intolerance for alternative viewpoints on matters of ritual order, and strong need to impose conformity in belief.
This badhaka agent must be handled with compassion, in the knowledge that this harm-causing agent is merely a projection of one's own unrealized fear of the deeper truth of religious teachings, the permissiveness of the higher philosophies, materialism in the priestly orders, and with self-proclaimed teachers of "only one right path" versions of truth.
Difficult graha in occupation of dharma bhava or Shani drishti upon bhava-9 may exacerbate the badhaka agency.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994).
Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 115
"For the Taurus Ascendant,
Saturn is a Yogakaraka planet being lord of the 9th and 10th houses.
Therefore, if a Blue Sapphire is worn by the native of this Ascendant he will always enjoy
The results will be more pronounced
Rahu's effects for Vrishabha lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Rahu's effects for Kumbha lagna depend significantly on Rahu's bhava, rashi, and incoming drishti.
Rahu amplifies the effect of any graha who share Rahu's house; and also Rahu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Rahu is co-lord of bhava-10 Kumbha.
Karmasthana is not a trine angle from Vrishabha.
If institutional and bureaucratic Shani, lord of Lawful and Responsible Actions, is strong, then Rahu may be empowered to aid matters of professional recognition and acquisition and development of respected social positions.
However, even for these specialized targets, prescribe the Rahu-ratna only if Shani and occupants of 10 are highly benevolent
.Otherwise, Rahu's somewhat lawless system-disregarding tendency to self-promote and self-elevate without concern for impact on others may create a public backlash toward the end of Rahu mahadasha .
|Rahu-2 in Mithuna|| |
Periods of Rahu-2-Mithuna are notable for acquisitive uprising, like a cobra from the snake-charmer's basket. Rahu-2 triggers an ancient, urgent ambition to hoard and acquire items of perceived lineage value. In particular Rahu craves knowledge in the form of information . Rahu seeks historic value that can be obtained via reports, announcements, documents, and texts (including the texts of music, painting, architecture, photographs etc.) Rahu hungers to collect and conserve records of commercial transitions, meetings, matters of planning and scheduling, and the general narrative discourse of daily life.
Ketu's effects for Vrishabha lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti.
Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who share Ketu's house; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Ketu is co-lord of bhava-7 Vrischika. Therefore Ketu-ratna can, for certain specific purposes, become a beneficial gem for the Vrishabha native.
Exceptional applications of the Ketu-ratna may be profitable if the native is positively involved in contract negotiation, advising professions, or relationship development.
However even for these purposes, apply Ketu-ratna with caution and only if the lord of bhava-7 and its occupants are comfortably placed.
