General Suitability of Gems for Mithuna Lagna

Generally Recommended Jyotisha-ratna Gems

  • Panna = emerald supports physical vitality of lagnesha Budha + education and cultural roots via Budha L-4

  • Hira = diamond supports creative political intelligence L-5 + meditative, prayerful spiritual guidance via Shukra L-12

  • Nilam = blue sapphire supports confidential information gained via L-8 + wise world-traveling dharmapati Shani L-9

  1. Surya ratna = no, because Surya = L-3 and does not rules any other good house

  2. Chandra ratna = no, because Chandra = L-2 and does not rules any other good house

  3. Mangala ratna = no-no-no, because Mangala = L-6 and L-11

  4. Budha ratna = yes! because Budha = the auspicious lagnesha and L-4

  5. Guru ratna = no, because Guru = L-7 and L-10

  6. Shukra ratna = yes, because bhagya Shukra = L-5 and L-12

  7. Shani ratna = yes, because bhagya Shani = L-8 and L-9

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's lord

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord

There are exceptions to all of these general rules which are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the native 's personal goals, inter alia.

Breath and Mental Narrative

from How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life

by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, trans-ed by Jeffrey Hopkins, p.133

"If you cannot stop worrying over something in the past or what might happen in the future, shift your focus to the inhalation and exhalation of your breath.

Or recite this mantra: om mani padme hum(pronounced "om mani padmay hum").

Since the mind cannot concentrate on two things simultaneously, either of these meditations causes the former worry to fade. "

The Nodal House Pair for Mithuna Lagna: bhava-6 and bhava-9

The "nodal house pair" = the two domains which are afflicted by association with the "unholy trinity": Rahu-Ketu + Shani + Mangala.

These are the two domains which are controlled by Vrischika (Mangala yuti Ketu ) and Kumbha (Shani yuti Rahu ) respectively.

For Mithuna lagna,

  • Ketu co-lord of Vrischika afflicts the sixth amza = dissolution of agreements, medical (e.g., doctor, nurse, med-tech) and conflict-management professions (e.g., attorneys), and human service ministries (e.g. pastor, social worker).

  • Rahu co-lord of Kumbha afflicts ninth amza = father, wisdom-teachings, guru, professor, temple, university, and priests.

Raja Yoga for Mithuna lagna

Budha + Guru in Mithunalagna

  • An exchange of Rashi between Karma's Lord and Lagna's Lord will make the native associated with the king in a great manner. ~~ BPHS,Ch. 40, Sl. 13

  • If the lord of the Lagna and the 10th exchange houses with each other then they form a Raja Yoga . They will confer high position, reputation and power. ~~ BPHS, Ch. 5, Sl. 41

Leadership Capacity and Style

Career - Vocation additional required assessments:

  • L-7 + L-10 from Chandra Lagna

  • 10th navamsha and its lord within the radix

  • Guru the Guide = L-10

  • Generous Guru = L-7

A fortunate combination for organizational leadership (10) and peer-advising collegial relationships (7) -- provided that Guru is well-disposed.

Mithuna nativities generally enjoy successful material careers in all departments of the productive economy.

They specialize in guidance activities, which range from religious preaching to philosophical publishing to travel guide to law-school professor, as well as dozens of teacher-preacher-adviser-counselor roles in other humanistic content areas.

Guru provides both leadership-guidance (10) and counseling-guidance (7). Frequently the native will work for a large (Guru) humanistic organization, often taking the role of the "scholar-administrator".

Guru loves wisdom-seekers and wisdom-providers such as teachers, travelers, and truth (9).

Guru also loves the sanctuary enclosures (12) such as hospitals, meditation halls, dormitories, and counseling rooms where spiritual guidance occurs. Mithuna nativities therefore a drawn to Guru-ist vocations:

  • professional educators

  • the education industry = teachers and academic advisers

  • divinity: teaching, preaching, pastoral counseling

  • law: consulting attorneys, law professors, managing partners

  • medicine: consulting physician, philosophy of medicine, psychologist-psychiatrist

Mithuna-lagna is blessed with broad-minded and compassionate (Guru) peer-advisers and colleagues (7).

Mithuna nativities = the spouse-partner (7) is likely to share the same Guru-oriented profession (10).

Health for Mithuna lagna

L-6 = Kuja

Mithuna lagna is more likely to have health problems = consequences of repressed anger or a psychology of excessive self-control.

L-6+L-11 = friends become enemies and also enemies may become friends. the native earns via direct intervention (Mangala) into situations rife with conflict, debt, and disease.

  • The physical manifestations of illness are somewhat mysterious due to Ari Bhava = Vrischika.

  • They tend toward the expression of the secret, unspeakable anger that articulate, conversational Mithuna rarely feels permitted to express during day-to-day business transactions.

  • Look to Kuja's bhava for the relationship and the location which show the key to the origin of the ailment.

  • The origin of Mithuna's ailment = usually angry frustration with "psychic attack".

    • Some variety of psycho-emotional aggression has produced a pattern of attempted take-over of the native by the siblings (Mangala), male peers (Mangala), possibly co-workers (esp males), or even indirectly one may feel attacked by economic forces of the marketplace (11) .

    L-6 = the contract-dissolver. In contractual relationships, during the period of L-6, the native will struggle with impulsiveness and a tendency to break promises (6).

    • If other factors suggest impending dissolution of marriage, Mangala periods may signal legal divorce. L-6 Kuja in bhava-1, bhava-4, or bhava-12 is very challenging for marriage.

    • Shani in 6 for Mithuna lagna = native wants to get out of a frustrating marriage, but cannot due to responsibilities or fear of censure.

    More than any other lagna, Mithuna's health problems are resolved effectively through surgery.

If L-6 Kuja also occupies the Mithuna radix lagna,

  • the native 's life = fraught with adversarial conflict.

  • The individual is exceptionally competitive to the point of chronic, often destructive, aggressiveness.

  • The animosity affects the physical body when L-6 occupies the janma lagna. Kuja in Mithuna lagna may encourage the native to undertake a career in dispute management, particularly a career the involves large-scale economic activity since Kuja = L-11 while Guru as L-10 tends to grant a large scope to career influence upon the society.

  • If the L-8+L-9 Shani is involved with Kuja (yuti or drishti or parivartamsha) the aggression can be channeled into a university career but most like the earnings (Mangala L-11) will be obtained via a secret (Shani L-8) structure.
