According to the bhava-pati, Mithuna's most difficult houses =
physical body, flesh-based identity, material appearance * Mithuna
Bhava-1 signifies personal competition for social validation through a winning combination of physical behaviors and traits.
Lagnesha Budha vs birth-body Kuja * static analysis vs instinct to movement
Interactions of Budha and Kuja are often problematic in Jyotisha. Direct-action Kuja takes a great dislike to waffling, wordy lagnesha Budha. However, waffling, wordy Budha sees muscular, often rather primitive Kuja as simply a non-threatening neutral.
Budha is often able to outsmart Kuja's instinct to accomplish things swiftly but with little forethought. However, Kuja the Hunter feels that Budha's analytical, two-sides-to-everything cleverness * a devious threat to His quest for fierce and swift physical conquest
Budha the logician of the Mentality vs Kuja the animator of the Body are often in conflict.
The life of a Mithuna lagna native is therefore often fraught with mental vs physical conflict.
Mithuna's tendency to self-identify with thinking, planning, and cogitating behaviors does conflict at a deep inner level with Kuja's muscular birthing instinct to "just do it".
While the location and characteristics of lagnesha Budha are of course essential to determine the success or otherwise of the Mithuna social personality, it can be said in general that Mithuna are notoriously conflicted procrastinators who occasionally burst forth into great surges of forward movement.
The adversarial reality of having to accommodate a multi-talented Budha mentality within the single-focus animal body (Kuja) is often the source of deep frustration with life. Sexuality is emphasized but rarely satisfying. Mithuna in general -- especially in the Mars-ruled Mrigashira portion -- tries to escape the confines the physical body as soon as possible.
Sensual and sexual Mithuna is a highly cooperative and collaborative rashi.
The Mithuna native seeks to develop the physical personality identity through association with teams, corporate departments, siblings and cousins, and conversation partners.
Mithuna natives are generally logical, organized, and conversational folk who have a strong mental interest in caring for their vehicles, homes, lands, and country (particularly local education and environmental planning, due to Budha * L- 4). They strive to maintain a competitively mentalized personality and physical appearance.
Mithuna-lagna folk often have a vata or slightly stone-colored cast to their complexion, a very slightly opaque bone-colored patina, relative to their gene pool. (Moon's sign and characteristics also influence appearance.)
Tendency to possess an intellectual countenance. Appears like a thinker: often with broad, high forehead and sensitive, capable hands
Mercury is a dry (barren) planets so these folks (depending on Budha's condition in the radix/navamsha of course) have a rather "dry" vibration which comes from their mental orientation
Smart, alert, but somewhat superficial compared to other lagna. Adolescent viewpoint lends a simplistic naïveté regarding the partner(s).
Engages mentally, not emotionally in relationships. Mentalized sexual style; may need verbal argument to reconnect. May be extremely chatty if Budha or L-3 are empowered.
Complexion will tend to be lighter, relative to their gene pool. They are also, as a group, argumentative by nature.
Likes to compose and deliver scripted conversation, such as
a fixed sermon
or university lecture
quoted conversation in fiction
or a song
or a song-and-dance film performance
The specific condition of Budha in the radix and navamsha will determine the scope and success of these general traits.
The dignity of lagnesha Budha will determine one's overall life success.

Values, food, family, stored food and wealth, languages, collections, acquisitive behaviors, banking * Karkata * nurturing
Sympathetic, nourishing, sheltering Chandra rules bhava-2; therefore, Mithunaya is fundamentally family oriented and loyal to the lineage. Dedicated to the parents, the hometown, the parochial ethics, the local schools.
May defend and protect (Chandra) any family member, even a family member who has harmed others. If Chandra is afflicted, emotionally based food issues may arise.
Presuming Karkata-Chandra is in good condition, Mithuna lagna natives tend to possess traditional home-and-family values, speak softly, and share one's knowledge/values primarily within the small, trusted circle of family and family-like friends.
Mithuna lagna natives are often born to naturally hoarding, storing,wealth-accumulating mothers. the native is early sensitized to the mother's instinct for acquisition and development of capital wealth, cultural knowledge, and historical values of one's people.
If Chandra is well-disposed, the native 's approach toward values acquisition is instinctive. It seems so natural (literally coming through the mother's milk!) that one may not have explicit consciousness of the savings behavior.
Values are deeply traditional, and one's family historylives near the water(river, ocean, pond or lake).
Mithuna natives have a natural acquisitiveness which manifests in caring affectionately for material goods, nesting in valuable homes, and a persistent emotional drive to lay in stores upon which to draw in the future. Material goods represent emotional security.
If Chandra is well-disposed, the Mithuna native is a superior accumulator. Not necessarily miserly -- but rather the intuitive need to save and store is a permanent part of the character, passed from the mother and onward to one's own children.
The specific characteristics of Chandra in the rashi and navamsha will determine the scope and success of these general traits. Total amount of accumulated Wealth depends on relationship between L-5 Shukra + L-9 Shani+ L-11 Mangala, and L-2 Chandra.
Chandra is very impressionable!In assessing Chandra, keep in mind that relationships with other graha can be more important than Chandra's own bhava-rashi disposition.

Sahaja Bhava-3 teamwork = Simha = Center-stage brilliance in business administration
Mental health tends to be good. Depending on condition of Surya and L-5, thinking process itself is highly rational. Mithuna natives are masters of argument. Combined with their Guru-owned law-court house, their confident 3rd makes excellent politicians and attorneys.
The third is also a house of administration. Mithuna folk identify socially with leadership in small-group process. They masterfully operate meetings, conferences, and the total mechanism of corporate administration with ease and comfort - or at least, tremendous confidence.
An ego-conscious thinker, the Mithuna lagna asks: what's in it for me?One naturally evaluates each opportunity to join a team or publish a communication for its self-expressive and praise-making potential.
Mithuna's workgroups and sibling groups, even residential neighbors, are composed of intelligent, confident types who have strong self-esteem.
Generally the native is independent-minded, courageous, proactive, and enthusiastic in mental process and communication styles.
If Surya is in good condition, there is good potential for self-made capital wealth through publications which express a uniquely personal point of view, particularly on speculative, political or entertainment topics.
Bandhu Bhava-4 home * Kanya * agriculture, service to the Land
Whether male or female, the youthful native takes an argumentative (6) younger-sibling role at home.
However they like to garden as a homeland activity and are dedicated to the service of their country and their parents.
Budha (bitter enemyof Chandra) rules bhava-4, therefore expect some complication along the path to achieving the deepest physical and emotional security in life, due to excessive logical mentalization and too much counting or calculating in the home.

Putra Bhava-5 creativity = Thula * diplomacy, negotiation
Shukra rules swabhava ofmutual enemy Surya. Shukra imposes a culture of negotiation and bargaining upon the creative and pro-creative endeavors. Children may be spoiled by Shukra's sweet indulgences.
Depending on the character of Shukra in the kundali, natives of the Jituma lagna tend to be fair-minded and equable (Shukra) in matters of courtly, poetic romance (5).
Mithuna can negotiate political (5) alliances (Shukra) gracefully. Much delight in children (5). May become business partners with their adult children.
Mithuna folk enjoy creative (5) artistic performance events, light socializing, and literary (5) circles. Aspire to be and often achieve the role of capital wealthy supporters of the arts. Mithuna pays close attention to the development of children's social manners and politeness. Offspring are provided with many opportunities to learn the finer skills of civilized society.
Gracious and intelligent teachers, Mithuna find a balanced engagement with adolescents (5). the native 's primary mode of self-expression is through agreeable pleasure-seeking relationships, nicely arranged dinner parties, multi-family pleasure trips, and other luxurious entertainments. Enjoys literature, theatre, and politically themed social events.
Masters of the balanced, pleasant, mutual-interest position in social relationships. Enjoys entertaining others with similar appreciation for enjoyable, well-designed, well-maintained environments.
Prefer to live aesthetically, but they scrupulously avoid excess. Self-identified with Balance and Harmony - not too much and not too little.
Speculation, a key matter of Putra Bhava, is successful for Yuj lagna, providing Venus is well disposed.
Guru as L-7+L-10 is a steady planet. If even modestly well disposed, Guru periods will bring offspring. Shukra and Shani periods = fertile too.

The maha-dusthamsha bhava-6 = "double trouble" for Mithuna lagna
Mangala becomes quickly frustrated with Budha's wordiness and Ketu simply observes. Unhappily for the muscular warrior, Kuja must fight criminal with a War of Words.
Ari Bhava-6 pollution * Vrischika * invasion, secrecy
Excellent placement for a professional who delivers pro-active, vigorously competitive arguments:
Health can be compromised by over-working, under-sleeping, and burning the midnight oil in search of the competitive mental edge.
Health issues will manifest Mars-Budha qualities such as hypertension, fevers from intestinal infection, high blood pressure, shellshock, battle exhaustion, torn muscles, cuts, bruises, and pelvic/abdominal ailments. Accidents occur when the native is over-thinking and loses concentration on the physical environment.
Depending on condition of Kuja, will tend to have secret or covert enemies. May be perceived as sneaky or doing secretive (Vrischika) surveillance in the workplace (6) or upon polluted environments.
Esp. during Mars periods, long-festering animosity with roots in past-life aggression will flare up into the current life.
Sometimes the body creates an illness to burn off the karma. Can be deep, hidden emotional illness breeding tumors in the sexual-reproductive system - noticed during Mars periods. Occasionally, the native may become a victim of black magic.
More often there is a scramble for power, accusations, and Martial re-assertion in the workplace, or involving marital disagreement. the native must put forth a great deal of competitive energy to manage an inordinately high load of both psychic (Ketu) and physical (Kuja) conflict. One may become psychically exhausted.
Mithuna are workplace warriors who want control. Mithuna will psychologically pressuretheir servants and employees. One may become a miserable Sisyphus,pushing eternally toward an ineffable goal of better workplace performance.
Mithuna's mental competence, physical drive, and impatience for sloth combine to create enemies amongst the employees, particularly those less ambitious. Mithuna natives work hard. Very hard.
But the fruits of these labors will depend on
Mithuna can successfully compartmentalize one's own personality (Budha lagnesha). Because of this mental categorization skill, Mithuna may be able to fight losing battles in the workplace for longer than most. However eventually Ketu will surrender. Such control as can be had will only be self-control.
The Employees, servants, and physicians generate one conflict after the next. Find Ketu's lord or companion graha to see the main agents of workplace trouble.
For Mithuna lagna, Ketu afflicts the sixth house Of dissolution of agreements, medical and conflict-management professions, and human service ministries.
The Mithuna native is raised with an active (Kuja) even dominating but also ambivalent (Ketu) approach to self-assertion in conflict situations. The mother's relatives (6) and also one's servants or employees(6) may become passive-aggressive and odd.
the native develops peculiar health conditionsrelated to psycho-sexual detachment and passive-aggressive (Ketu + Kuja) response to marital disagreement (6); physicians may be mystified (Ketu) regarding the cause of one's disease.
Better results from a well-disposed Kuja, but often there emerge some health issues of the hidden portions of the sexual-reproductive system or deriving from secretive (Vrischika) sexual behaviors.
The agents of conflict such as criminals and military agents may become scattered (Ketu) and aggressive (Kuja) by turns; the native typically feels a considerable ambivalence toward the workplace and frustrated uncertainty regarding whether one's work (6) is sufficiently complete. Sexual-reproductive system disease is noted.
Das/Behari says that Vrischika becomes a site of illness for the Mithuna native.
Vrischika = karaka for the hidden, invisible-to-the-physical-eye portions of the sexual-reproductive system (ovaries, uterus, prostate gland). Vrischika = the sphincter system of the body, in particular the anus.
Psycho-emotional imbalances from the astral plane tend to percolate down into the fleshly realm along the Vrischika channels.

Ari Bhava-7 alliances, vows * Dhanusha * multiplicity, tolerance, inclusiveness
Although the full extent of the relationship expanse will be determined by the character of Guru within the kundali, one natural outcome of multiplicity-karaka Guru's lordship of the marriage bhava is that there will likely over time be multiple marriage partners as well as several key business alliances.
The nature of the marriage partnering behavior will certainly be in accordance with Mithuna's philosophical and religious beliefs.
Bhava-7 is naturally constituted as a place of interpersonal agreement, artistic grace, sensual pleasuring, and wealth-collecting behaviors.
Guru, who sees one-to-one Shukra as an enemy, dislikes this sort of sensual-material enterprise. Instead, Brihaspati wishes to impose His own values of religiosity, sacred vows and ritual performance, pursuit of higher knowledge, study and preaching upon holy scripture, global travel, and a generally philosophical view of life much informed by awareness of the multiple worlds.
Shukra only recognizes one world: the realm of human attractions, appreciation of financial and artistic values, and sense pleasures obtained through well-matched partnerships - both business and personal. Shukra promotes the beauty experienced via the bodily senses, particularly the eyes.
The Daitya-guru pays no attention to the ulterior matters of life philosophy which are so important to Guru. Shukra lives as if human-form, incarnate, material life would go one forever. Guru knows and preaches that material life
Guru insists on the importance of wisdom-teachings and multiple-worlds view which encompasses all lifetimes and the bridges between them. This insistence is incompatible with Shukra's agenda of concern for comfort and wealth in the present lifetime only.
Disturbs the balance of agreement in the marriage. the native must marry a Guru-type person, such as a teacher, preacher, world-traveling guru, philosopher, professor, theologian, or religionist in order to feel properly matched. This requirement is particularly emphatic for Mithunayanavamsha and when Guru is pronounced in the radix.
Check the condition of Guru in radix to determine the marriage compatibility forecast.
Despite the apparently auspicious implication for benefic Guru ruling the marriage house, Shukra and Guru do not agree on the priority values of marriage, and the general result = as Behari says "Marriage is a bed of thorns".
The spouse becomes a "project" for the native, who lavishes wisdom and guidance upon the partner. the native permits the spouse to expand one's own life interests. The spouse generally is friendly and wise.
However without explicit attention to higher philosophical matters,such as a joint teaching-missionary yoke or both spouses involved in university work, Dhanusha on the seventh house = a karaka for gradual disappointment in the short-loop sensual satisfactions of marriage. Consequences of the disappointment in limitations of the partnership generally lead to an amicable (Guru) divorce.
When relations fall grossly out of balance due to indulgence, the marriage becomes unsustainable. The spouse is typically much aggrieved at losing their privileges, and feels they have done nothing wrong.
Indeed, the source of the difficultly is mismanagement by the native - who often feels that spousal indulgence was an unappreciated gift rather than a management mistake.
Quality of marriage depends on the material condition of Guru.
Contracts, agreements, legal discussions, all types of advising are expansively smooth and easy. Law courts are a philosophically engaging, humanistic place to be.
Divorce is less common, due to generous nature of Guru. When divorce does happen, it tends to be amicable and easily adjudicated. As always, any graha occupying bhava-7 will radically affect the house.
|Badhaka-sthana * "harming" houses||
Common-rashi lagna typically has some karmic trouble from the spouse, business-partner, attorney-counselor, medical consultant, peer-adviser colleague, etc.
Problematicity = increased if Guru = nichha-amza or Brihaspati occupies a dushthamsha.

the husband of the woman concerned will be of great merit and will have passions under his control.
Das/Behari comment * Dhanushya * kalatra-bhava
"Invariably, Sagittarius in the Seventh house leaves a sorrowful taste in life.
Often the marriage partner is respectable,
This lack of warmth is not necessarily due to sexual incompatibility,
but more often founded in psychological incompatibility or sustained physical illness,
Whatever the reason, marriage is a bed of thorns."

Shani's governance is strongly impeded in swabhava of enemy Kuja.
Shani -Saturn: Karmic Cleanup
Randhra Bhava-8 in-laws, spousal assets * Makara * regular habits, lawful conduct
Because Shani = lord of 8th-from-lagna and 9th-from-lagna, Mithuna natives have a disciplined and austere approach toward matters of catastrophic change and the wisdom-teachings of religious priesthood.
Relationship to the spouse's family is characterized by careful respect for the in-law's dignity and social position, but there is limited natural affection.
Joint assets of marriage are reduced by oppressive Shani unless Shani is especially well-disposed. As a rule, the spouse contributes less to the joint marital bank-accounts than the Nriyuj native.
Often this condition of scarcity (Shani) is quite acceptable to professional Mithuna. as Kanya = 4 indicates a preference for having servants in the home. If the spouse chooses a home-based lifestyle, this situation effectively places the spouse in the service of the homestead. Presuming Budha is well disposed, Mithuna is often the sole or dominant financial supporter in the marriage.
Alternatively, spouses may keep their accounts non-jointly, as Shani rules cold separations.
Depending on Shani's condition, spouse's contribution to The capital wealth of the marriage while possibly not financial may indeed be promote the native 's career .(bhava-8 = gainful 11th- from-10th).
The spouse is normally from a family of more plebian social standing; respectable but humbled by social circumstances.
Perhaps a hardworking simple clan, or a distinguished family fallen on hard times. In any case Mithuna folk will contribute more psychic and financial resource into the joint assets of marriage than the spouse.
Other features of Randhra bhava such as Deep healing transformation, psychotherapy, therapeutic massage, and other regenerative therapies = barely accessible to Mithuna due to Shani's scarcity thinking. Mithuna prefers to suppress their need for change and numb their fears with work.
Resistance to Transformation
Two malefics rule two dushthamsha: 6 = malignant Mars as 6th lord, while Shani the King of Denial rule the 8th bhava. It is a recipe for slowly festering resistance to change underlying long-term illnesses of the blood (kuja) internal genitalia (Kuja) bones (Shani) and skin (Shani).
Deep transformative healing is difficult to access because Shani characteristically dislikes movement and prevents change.
Logically mentalized Mithuna takes a materialistic view of mysteries. Shani prefers to maintain conventional appearances. Therefore no matter what the internal struggle and urgency for "turning over a new leaf" the Mithuna native clings to old routines.
If naturally occurring marital disagreements (6, Kuja-ruled) cannot be easily resolved (7, Guru) without imposing evolutionary change (8), Shani simply shuts down the interaction with the change-forcing agent (who is typically the spouse).
Any number of covert activities may be happening with or without the knowledge of the spouse, but on the surface, society will see a conformist and conventionalized presentation of the marriage treasuries (8).
For Mithuna, Kuja lord of 6 is action-oriented therefore periods of an unfortunate Kuja may trigger divorce from the life partner, but also the conflict energy can manifest as illness of the internal sex glands or diseases of the blood.

Dharma Bhava-9 wisdom, sacred = Kumbha = scientific economics with a Rahu twist!
Because Shani is lord of 8th-from-lagna and 9th-from-lagna, Mithuna natives have a disciplined and austere approach toward matters of catastrophic change and the wisdom-teachings of religious priesthood.
Kumbha ruler of 9 prefers a scientific life philosophy (Shani) but Rahu co-lord of Kumbha causes sudden self-elevation via World Travel (9) and encounters with the Naga-ruled religions of the huge world underclass.
Periods of Rahu are full of elevating, leap-upward energy that propels the native into is actually
One can live in a way that conforms to contemporary moral teachings(9), but one is deeply aware that the greater power lies with hidden sources of power (8).
Shani's restrictions generally guarantee that the inspiration and consolation of Religion is not easily accessible to Dvamdva-lagna. Although logically philosophical and scientifically correct, they do not have much psychic permission to run the intuition levels necessary to recognize the dharma.
Dvamdva-lagna natives are materialistic, scientific positivists in their philosophical worldview. Mithuna are believers in scientific (Kumbha) methods and the proof via data from the five senses.
Often atheists or agnostics, Mithuna are nonetheless legitimately spiritual beings.
choose religious fellowship for purposes of social affiliation or community culture - rather than any personal hunger for truth.
The father is frequently distant and hard-working, a practical realist, involved in science or technology. Shani's location (combined with 9th-from-Moon) will tell the nature of the father's social role.
Very sensitive to the abuse of religious authority, the native takes a dim view of subjective truth claims and guru-charisma.
For Mithuna lagna, Rahu afflicts ninth houseof father, wisdom-teachings, guru, professor, temple, university, and priests.
The father, one's study of philosophy and religion,and one's own professorship, moral judgeship or priesthood(9) will manifest in the context of a certain scientific materialistic rigidity (Shani) combined with sudden attacks of upheaval due to passionate behavior of the father, guru figures, and higher teachers.
The Mithuna native's father and wisdom-teachers (9)are subject tomixed signals. On the one hand, Shani as lord of Kumbha gives orderly, visionary scientific and conceptual thought - which overlaid upon the house of Wisdom can produce some extraordinary research intelligence into the workings of Higher Law.
For Mithuna lagna, Kumbha/9 results in a mix of resistance and desire toward the process of obtaining higher knowledge; one may hunger for philosophical attainment (Rahu) but due to Shani's cold materialism, one may suffer the skeptical rejection of the highest divine truths.
The father and wisdom-teachers will be scientific-minded and culturally unusual.
Das/Behari comments on Kumbha * dharmasthana
Karma bhava 10 * Meena * reflective, imaginative leadership style
L-10 Guru = philosophical, contemplative view of the social order.
the native is a broad-minded but capable executive who imposes an orderly, lawful environment informed by a broadly humanistic understanding.
Presuming that Guru is well disposed,, the Mithuna native when engaged in elite leadership roles will display a capacity for compassionate guidance toward realization of humanistic social "causes" rather than a punitive or conformist style.
Guru emphasizes the role of peer-to-peer relationships (7) within the boss role (10) making the Mithuna native more concerned with partnership equity than with personal executive authority. As a result, positions like "managing partner" in a professional partnership firm are most suitable to the Yugma (yoking, joining) ascendant.
Guru the Guide tends to use socially privileged positions (10) as a means of expanding the leadership scope and visibility for those in one's downstream. the native is as much a teacher as a boss.
Generous toward the lower management, other less powerful decision-makers, the rank-and-file workers. Provides an expansive presence in general. Consciously preaches to improve conditions in the hierarchy.
Even when too much engaged in their own work and temporarily unable to assist the development of others, is always a sincere well-wisher toward the entire social organization.
Career draws on past-life credit and is inherently fortunate.
Skills that define the present-life career = 10th navamsha and its lord.
Guru's condition in radix, considered along with the condition of the lord of 10th-from-Chandra and the lord of the dashamsha lagna, will show a broader set of details regarding one's most visible public duties.
Presuming good auspice for Guru, the Mithuna lagna can expect to enjoy an expansive, and relatively easy step-wise ascent (10) to a respected, responsible professional position.
Mithuna has an overall preference for the intellectual professions or business administration, but the lord of the 10th navamsha will narrow this general trait.
Professional Success depends onGuru
Ideally Guru will be angular and receive friendly drishti.
On the plus side, Guru = L-7+L-10 for the Mithuna lagna. However Guru dislikes lagnesha Budha, which often means that Mithuna's personality is less well received in the professional leadership arena.
Budha-ruled Mithuna usually behaves in a cooperative fashion. Nevertheless periods of Shani L-12 from 10th may trigger a loss (12th) of career (10) that can reveal how Mithuna works at cross-purposes to the organization. (Budha works at cross-purposes to Guru.)
Yet, even a poorly placed Budha will contribute argumentation skills and a detailed, analytical perspective to Mithuna's leadership roles.
Professional reputation flourishes in specialties of philosophical interpretation and guidance.
Mithuna enjoys business administration (3) when they have an adequately dramatic work-group (Simha, 3) to support their interest in politics and the entertainments arts.
Mithuna enjoys managing transactions (3) that contain creative, speculative and political information (Simha). They like to join collaborative small-group processes with team-mates who possess brilliant, royal or charismatic qualities (Simha, 3).
Of course, much depends upon the lord of the 10th navamsha as well as any graha occupying Bhava-10 or 10th-from-10th = Bhava-7.
Das/Behari says, re: 10th bhava ruled by Guru for the Mithunaya lagna
"makes you very religious,
an advocate of conventional philosophies and morals.
You want to work for a cause,
Bhava 11 *
Labha bhava 11 * Mesha * competitive marketplace action
Mesha-11: befriends the bold and innovative; the vital and the body-based; those less concerned with established wealth and beauty; those involved with birth and uniqueness; the assertive and masculine; the conquistadores ; the hot-blooded and athletic; the masculine, the competitive; independent winners
Kuja rules 11 * gains, goals, and mutually profitable marketplace associations. Friends and associates are generally chosen on the basis of their competitive abilities, because this native likes to socialize with winners.
Mesha needs movement. For Mithuna to be happy in friendly company, Voluntary associations in the social network (11) do not have to be combative, but they should be pursued in active outdoor sporting life or in some vigorously social style within the competitive professional marketplace of goods and ideas .
Presuming that Kuja is in good condition, Mithuna lagna will earn fairly well due to Kuja's wellspring of physical energy directed toward obtainment of social-material goals.
Kuja also rules bhava-6 * debt * 9th-from-10th. Kuja periods can bring servitude as well as success. Often the best combination is professional public service which brings benefit of higher marketplace earnings in exchange for labor but does not reduce the need for constant labor in the workplace (6).
The work-energized Mithuna native must certainly work for a living. If their paid work ceases to become urgent due to unemployment or retirement they will feel unbearably restless until a charitable or voluntary work commitment occurs.
Naturally, these general effects of an active, moving, muscular Kuja-ruled labha bhava can be significantly improved when pro-luxury or pro-gain graha occupy 11 - e.g., if L-2 Chandra is in 11, a dhana yoga is found even with Mesha-11
|General Effect on Friendship Networks||
Mithunaya lagna tends to develop competitive relationships with both friends (Kuja * L-11) and enemies alike (Kuja * L-6).
There are generally few or no lifelong friends, due to the eventuality of the native initiating arguments within the network of association. Even the sibling relationships become problematic eventually.
However the native may enjoy instrumental goal-achieving friendships with those who assist one's marketplace gainfulness and help one to achieve one's competitive target (11). One prefers to be friends with the 'winners', in whatever fashion that 'winning' may be defined by the position of Mangala in the nativity.
if L-6 in 11:
Presence of L-6 Mangala in 11 can indicate one who becomes seriously annoyed by the peccadillos of friends.
Das/Behari comments on the conflict present for Mithuna * Mangala-movement Mesha * Shani's static, regulatory bhava-11
"you have a hard time earning money.
Generally, you may take employment with the government or some other very routine job.
Unless you can play an active role in your career, psychological problems arise in your life.
You are primarily interested in social life, sensual pleasures, and displaying your personality and charm.

Das/Behari comments on
[BPL notes: realization of the saintly qualities depends upon the character of Ketu's lord Mangala, AND any other co-occupants of the labhastana.]
"Ketu makes you honorable, absorbed in your philosophical thoughts, contemplating a new way of life and social order.
* 12th from Mithunaya navamsha
* 12th from Mithuna Chandra
Shukra - Venus: Agreements rules swabhava ofGuru.
Shukra's governance is (only somewhat) impeded in swabhava of neutral Guru.
Vyaya bhava 12 = Vrishabha = private pleasures, enjoyment of seclusion
The meditation and inner sanctuary house is sensualized by pleasant lord Shukra, who aids the enjoyment of private environments, particularly bed pleasures.
A state of meditative relaxation may be entered via the aura-soothing sensuality of essential oils, fine wines, delicious foods, calming touch, and delightful music (Shukra).
Presuming the Shukra is well disposed and strong, escapist spa-type deep relaxation is easily accessible. Healing sanctuaries, fine hotels and lovely convalescent enclosures readily open their doors to the balance-seeking native.
Finest relaxation from the tension of physical existence occurs in forests and fields of nature (Vrishabha) and whilst traveling in foreign lands (12).
Great pleasure in foreign journeys, the longer the better.
In addition to positive implications of meditation and spiritual retreat+ L-12 also = Enemies of the marriage (12 * 6th from 7).
Temptations to break the marriage vows tend to be females with beauty, grace, wealth, or artistic talent. The imagination (12) turns to clandestine pleasures. However look more closely at the character of Shukra in the nativity to determine if there is a threat and if so the details by Shukra's bhava and rashi.
With Shukra as 12th lord it may be tempting to take the false route to disembodied bliss - tamasic indulgence leading to sensual saturation - rather than Sattvic meditation and prayer. Much depends on Shukra's dignity.
Mithuna-lagna enjoys foreign travel immensely. Along with their natural love of children, world travel esp to places of great natural beauty can be a major source of satisfaction
If Shukra is strong, Mithuna can take up residence in a foreign land during Shukra's periods.
