Chandra in Mithuna = lord of the dreamy, sensitive 12th-from-swakshetra.
Dissolution of the emotional attachments, with apprehension of astral signals (dreams, intuitions, divinations, psychic channeling)
Retreat into sanctuaries of reflective contemplation or imprisonment. Long sojourn in foreign lands.
With extra emotional-intuitive sensibilities, Mithuna-Chandra is often a surprisingly effective communication channel for unconscious voices and thus often quite a good writer.
Mithuna-Chandra needs to interact by sharing one's own internal narrative with another person or a group.
Delightful 'twinning' companion.
When Mithuna-Chandra looks in the mirror, s/he sees a Conversation Partner, an agent of publication, a charming articulator by speech and gesture, and a brilliant wit.
Mithuna-Chandra is emotionally attached to the image of self produced by the hands and the embrace , and the emotional psychology tends to interpret the world in a distinctively conversational, articulate, sexually interactive style.
In Mithuna, Chandra's psycho-emotional absorptive sensitivity acquires Budha-like communicative characteristics, and Mithuna-Chandra tends to have persuasive emotional response to the world. Mithuna-Chandra is prone toward articulated verbal expressions, conversations, information transactions as primary modes of emotional engagement with one's environment.
Mithuna-Chandra 's fundamental emotional urge is to engage in a diversity of types and levels of interactive communication with other beings and elementals in their environment, in order to form a clearer picture of oneself.
Mithuna-Chandra style = quickly intimate with the "Other" in the shared environment, like twins in the womb. However one can only remain engaged in relationships that retain the interest of the hungering self-information mind via an adequate amount of diversity, complexity, interactivity and multi-dimensionality.
Actual success (or not) in staying informatively engaged with their environment, and thus remaining emotionally stable, depends on the health of Mercury.
Mithuna-Chandra flourishes in networks of fast-paced, multi-cultural or multi-lingual, sexually- or politically-charged relationships, where one can flex the information-gathering psychic antennae with discrimination and skill. Tendency toward successful, communications-intensive careers in complex, sophisticated environments.
Handling the Mithuna-Chandra person:
If you have a Mithuna-Soma person in your life, be sure to interact with them in complex, multi-layered verbal transactions, that allow them to see themselves mirrored in you. Mithuna is a highly sexualized location, as sexually intimate communication is a very intense form of psycho-physical messaging.
If Mithuna-Chandra = your parent, child, or co-worker, remember they have a powerful need to discover their own identity via looking in the mirror of the Other.
Mithuna-Chandra = happy in their relationships when the emotionally needed self-confirming images = flowing in to them, from their 'conversation partners'.
Mithuna-Chandra needs to stay busy-busy in mentally engaging and meaningful-messaging behaviors. Mithuna-Chandra especially likes to schedule, plan, coordinate, cooperate, collaborate, organize, write, message, compose, interact, transact, transport, transition, instruct, explain, and describe. Their work is by definition a 'process' not a 'product' therefore the Mithuna-Chandra = 'never done'.
Contractual Partnerships and Trusts = 7th-from-Mithuna-Chandra = Dhanushya
7th from Mithuna-Chandra = Dhanushya. The partner = world traveller, religionist, philosopher, ambassador, preacher and practitioner of generosity and good-will, father-figure, guru, priest, professor, teacher-scholar.
Parenting = Chandra-Mithuna
The Mithuna-Chandra parent wants children who are skillful and effective communicators with multi-cultural, multi-lingual capabilities, savvy about media messaging, mentally agile, and empowered to engage in teamwork. Children should participate in scheduling, planning, and organizing with their parents during their many - often constant - short-term travel events.
5th-from-Mithunaya = Thula
during Vimshottari periods of Chandra , Vrishabha-related matters create a nutrient drain (12th-from) upon the emotional vitality
Energy-drainers = emotional losses and erosion of identity + vital life-force power =
6th-from Chandra-Mithuna = disagreement-distrust-dispute-divorce = Vrischika
6th-from-Chandra = lord Mangala rashi Vrischika
Mithuna-Chandra suffers built-in emotional conflict with the occult and the unknown.
One waits in a state of mystery, knowing intuitively that one may be attacked by hidden enemies.
One might eventually coordinate the conflict and accept a programme of constant espionage (8) against enemies (particularly if there are graha in Vrischika bhava) but it will never be easy because Budha lord of Chandra is an inimical and criticizing mate of Mangala L-6 from Chandra.
Adversaries = agents
operatives, confidential information,
shock and trauma, surprise events explorer, detective,
tantriki secrets, occult, dark and dangerous places
secret operatives, confidential information, shock and trauma, surprise events
explorer, detective, tantriki
secrets, occult, dark and dangerous places
problematic 6th-from-Chandra= rashi of Vrischika
Graha in Vrischika represent emotional adversaries
Mithuna are openly conversational folk who have an emotional affinity for constant conversation. Exchange of information and publication of messages of interest to the audience are Mithuna's natural business.
Mithuna conversational exchange vs. Vrischika contained secrets are poised at a Jyotisha shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle.
L-6+L-11 Mangala = Chandra Mithuna implicitly feels imbalanced, annoyed and upset with:
Deeply embedded discomfort; however will improve with time because Mangala rules two upachaya sthana. Also, that which one dislikes handling is usually profitable because Mangala is also L-11.
Method of enacting emotional animosity toward one is characteristic of Vrischika:
Predisposition to Injury and Accident
from Mithuna-Chandra lagna,
L-8 = Shani friend of lagnesha Budha
emotional core is geared to explanation and discussion. the native can move successfully through periods of significant identity upheaval via talking and receiving instruction on the new rules and regulations imposed by Shani.
19-year long Vimshottari periods of Shani = conditions of sudden emotional identity change induced by law and lawfulness, conformity to public opinion, reputation, social position
To see more periods of catastrophic emotional identity destruction and rebirth, Look also for malefic transits through the badhakha 22nd drekkamsha from Chandra.
Examples of transformative-trigger transits through 8th-from zones:
Badhaka angle for a Dwiswa Rashi = 7th from Mithuna = Dhanunshya = badhesha = Guru
Chandra in Mithuna Rashi
"These are very thoughtful, intelligent, and sometimes brilliant
people. They have a quickness of mind
which may appear changeable to others, but which is
nevertheless logical and orderly, and they make the most formidable
opponents in argument, because of this ability to skip from one aspect
of the subject to another. With seeming irrelevancy, yet never for a
moment losing sight of the main argument, they will return to [the
main point] after having led their opponents through devious paths,
into traps, from which it is difficult to extricate themselves.
They have a flair for scientific investigation and, indeed, are fond of all education and learning. They are talkative and are excellent linguists.
They are extremely active mentally and restless physically, and are subject to mental breakdowns because of this. They should take much exercise in the open air. Ideas simply crowd though their minds, many at a time. They are really not as superficial as they appear to be and can give authoritative information on any subject. Their real and secret thoughts, however, are hidden from view beneath a superficial wit and brilliance as they are quite secretive. Their most successful occupation would be writing or journalism, publishing, etc.
They are excellent mimics and absorb like a sponge the thoughts of other people, quite often appropriating them as their own. They are rather inclined to be physical cowards, since living in the mental world, they shrink from bodily contact or injury and can be easily intimidated by a show of physical violence.
They suffer from asthma and diseases of the heart and respiratory organs, and should be careful of their food, refraining from eating when the mind is disturbed. They are self-confident, and sometimes vain and arrogant, and are extremely skeptical of anything which cannot be proven scientifically. Very romantic, but not deeply touched by love or passion, they find great pleasure in the company of the opposite sex, being very fond of music, entertainment, dancing, speculation and gambling.
They are usually slim, of over average height. well-shaped straight noses, dark eyes, soft persuasive voices with a habit of hunching the shoulders when walking. Their faces resemble either a stag or deer. They should live in high altitudes, in the mountains or in the desert.
Their lucky stone is the Emerald and the best day for commencing any important activity is Wednesday.
Chandra in Mithuna Rashi
"Keen intelligent faces, rather attractive, beautiful figures,
particularly well shaped legs and ankles and
small hands and feet are the most evident
physical characteristics of the women with Moon in Gemini at birth.
Quite often they have natural curly hair which lends a feminine touch
to faces which might otherwise be somewhat boyish in appearance.
These women are on tight wires all the time. Nervously temperamental and excitable as a result of extreme mental activity and the tendency to do too many things at a time; they even read three of four books at a time going from one to the other. They have the faculty of quickly grasping the essentials of a book by reading here and there in the book, preferring to do this rather than to start the book at the beginning and read consecutively through to the end.
They are talkative, with the habit of skipping from one subject to another. They are highly imaginative and romantic but not warmly affectionate. They are best fitted for clerical jobs, writing, or work in the advertising departments of large concerns - file clerks, copy writers, research information, etc. If married, they will collaborate in their husband's business or work out some career of their own. They are not good housewives, detesting the menial details of housework, but they make splendid organizers both at home and in the office, as they have a mental grasp of details, while abhorring the physical tasks of carrying them out.
They are interested in Art, sculpture particularly, and are fond of reading poetry. They have strong constitutions as a rule.
Their chief weakness is in the lungs, and they should avoid eating or drinking cold food or beverages, since this seems to affect the lungs. Intoxicating liquors are very dangerous to these women as while they are mentally stimulated by their use, the effect on the lungs is very disastrous.
They should also avoid the use of drugs or medicines whenever possible, as they have the power to cure themselves and will recover quickly from most ailments. Medicines and drugs seem to affect them adversely and act contrary to expectations. "
for Chandra in Mithunya Rashi
"A period of social contacts, talking, writing,
exchange of ideas.
If sufficiently educated, the person may write articles, books, or give lectures. He may come in contact with publishers or writers or be instrumental in signing contracts.
Generally, this period will be marked by literary and educational activities."
Saravali, Ch. 23, Shloka 16
"If the Moon is in Gemini at birth,
will be skillful in the art of love, poetry etc.,
be very intelligent, splendorous,
be endowed with happiness, jocular disposition and eloquent speech,
