with remedial ratna recommendation
Great pride in one's writings, messages, announcements and the products of one's administrative skills.
L-3 Surya controls the mental traffic for the already-mentalized Mithunaya
Because Surya = center-stage recognition, L-3 Ravi = prefers to take the most visible roles in realms related to commercial business, communications messaging, and cohort-cooperation.
Father * Surya = pitri-karaka
Father is related to matters of vrikrama-sthana-3 such as technical writing, journalism, evangelism, sending and receiving messages, commercial transactions, buy-sell, communications media production, team management, and business administration.
So long as Surya avoids placement in a dushthamsha 6-8-12 from lagna, Mithuna is generally a busy craft-worker who is capable of collaborating with a team (for example, Faulkner's movie script-writing) so long as the native = a central figure on the team.
Surya in the dushthamsha may support ego-identification with"the office"and its daily transactions for a limited time, but eventually comes either broken contract (6), sudden upheaval (8) or dissolution of engagement (12).
Surya = divinely reasonable self = "enlightenment"and brilliance, the bright light of consciousness, soul awareness, controls the house of self-narrative, announcements, writing and publications, business administration and commerce, sales, marketing, advertising, and talk. Handwriting and tool-using quality depends on the disposition of Surya.
Center of Attention, Visible career
Surya= vehicle for public recognition,
As L-3 for Mithuna, Ravi places the native in center stage in fields of business administration (3) and skills of writing, publishing, reports, announcements, planning, scheduling, meetings and teamwork (3) .
Surya's favored communications environments include sales, marketing, advertising, media production (films, internet content, video, visual arts, music, etc.) short-journey services (holiday and business travel), seminars and conferences, editing, technical training that has commercial utility; information-packaging; skilled work with the hands including painting, scribe or transcription, tool-using, type-setting, inks and literary press.

"In the birth chart of Gemini (Mithuna) Ascendant, Sun is the lord of the 3rd house.
L-2 Chandra rules bhava-2
Treasuries of financial wealth and knowledge
family of origin, historic values, lineage, stories and tales, speech + song, face + hair, right eye, money + death
Chandra rules bhava-2, granting a particularly intuitive
understanding and ability for matters of family lineage,
history, speech-voice, face-hair, treasuries of wealth,
and banking, storage, or
Double-trouble from Chandra:
Naturally all outcomes of Chandra or Bhava-2 will vary according the graha residing in bhava-2 and also according to graha yuti Chandra.
Mithunaya lagna nativities emotionally need (Chandra) to feel
Mithunaya wants to feel deep roots through the family lineage (2).
The highly fluctuating and impressionable home-loving Chandra becomes a curator, custodian, conserver, conservator and conservationist in Soma's role as ruler of the Treasury.
There is a particular affinity for preservation of marine and sea-coast environments. Similar to Mesha lagna, the native is comfortable making one's home near the sea.
The lineage cultural values of the family history are deeply influenced by the condition of Chandra.
if Chandra = yuti Ketu, the native 's family may be perfectly stable and grounded in the place of settlement, but the native might not connect emotionally with others so naturally. One may lack empathy. These traits are not perceived as detrimental by the family in their role as lineage bearers. The family when Chandra yuti Ketu may indeed value emotional traits of detachment and reserve.
By contrast, the Mithuna native with an unafflicted Moon may enjoy a vibrant and deeply supportive relationship to the family history along with luxurious (Laxmi) wealth.
|Mahadasha of Chandra L-2 indicates 10 years of values-accumulation, language and history learning, and"focus on family".|| |
One may speak from an emotional foundation, and generally one's speech will be hailed by the more conservative, historically inclined audience. It is not a time for innovation but rather for deepening the ethnic and cultural roots. the native becomes conservative, financially privileged, knowledgeable, and well-fed.
If Chandra is well placed the native will eat and drink delicious nourishment.
If Chandra is less well placed, matters of the mouth including tongue, teeth, and voice may become problematic.
Chandra = maraka for Mithuna lagna; Guru-Chandra and Chandra-Guru periods are both candidate triggers for separation from the fleshly body.
According to BPHS ch 43, the period of Chandra-Guru can be fatal.
From: Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi.. p. 92
"For the Gemini Ascendant, Moon rules the 2nd house, the house of financial wealth .
Second house is the house of death also (maraka house).
Therefore, Pearl may not prove very suitable.
If in a nativity
On the whole, however, Pearl is not a very agreeable stone for this ascendant as Mercury the lord of the Ascendant is not friendly with Moon.. "
Triple-trouble from Mangala:
+ Mangala L-11 = sees lagnesha Budha as an enemy
+ Mangala L-11 = enemy of Shani the natural 11th lord
+ Mangala L-6 sees natural 6th lord Budha as enemy
as ruler of 6th and 6th-from-6th, Kuja is a highly adversarial graha for Mithuna lagna. Jyotisha assessment of Kuja's effects must be particularly careful.
Kuja = by far the most difficult graha for Mithuna natives
The placement of Mangala will determine the range of animosity, debt, disease, divorce, and also the scope of gains of marketplace income and the condition of the friendship networks. No matter how well-placed Kuja might be, bhukti periods of Mangala are likely to encourage marital conflict and personal illness or injury, even while these same periods are materially gainful. In general"gain from pollution, criminal deeds, exploitation, and broken contracts ".
Vital and competitive Kuja controls the warlike house of enemies and disease, as well as the networking, profitable 11th house of goals and achievements.
As L-11 = circles of friendship, Mangala lord of Mesha encourages the native to prefer muscular sport or dance as the means of group socializing.
As a general rule, Kuja is good for earnings if in a friendly rashi.
Mangala yuti lagnesha Budha creates a personality that is highly contentious and verbally energized in the pursuit of gainful argument.
The best profession for this combination = "professional arguer and critic" nearly always an attorney, and if Mangala is strong in kendra, such a litigious individual may be very successful in handling even the most aggressive accusations against one's legal clients.
Kuja mahadasha strengthens the relationship with the elder male sibling or cousin, who becomes a dominant force in the life during those six years. The elder sibling and later-life male friends and mentors are of sporting character, who enjoy vigorous and competitive outdoor activities.
Radical Mithuna nativities with Chandra in a Nakshatra of Rahu or Guru will most likely not live long enough to experience the Mangala Mahadasha, and thus they escape the sustained effects of L-6+L-11 chronic animosity and illness that often harm a Mithuna native.
Kuja is an especially difficult graha for Mithuna nativities in which Kuja = L-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance-seeking-a-remedy):
In the life of"Theory of Relativity" 1879-1955 Albert Einstein = Mithuna lagna + Vrischika Chandra:
His Kuja mahadasha began in late 1931
The was forced to leave WW-2 Germany due to Germany-Nazi Reichskanzler 1933-1945 Adolf Hitler's Third Reich systematic attacks on Jews.
After much upheaval, both personal and professional, his second wife died and he became ill.
L-6 Kuja in bhava-1, bhava-4, or bhava-12
Of these, Kuja-Kanya in bhava-4 [ Bill Gates ] is the most acutely disruptive of health and harmony in life.

"For the Gemini Ascendant, Mars is the lord of the 6th and 11th.
According to Parashara, Mars is not an auspicious planet for the Gemini Ascendant.
We, therefore, would advise to avoid wearing Coral to the native s of this ascendant.
It should be noted that Mars and Mercury the lords of the Gemini Ascendants are not friends. "
Budha = L-1+ L-4
instruct, explain, classify, discriminate, analyze, articulate
Despite His kendra-adhi-pati dosha, conversational and administrative lagnesha Budha is a highly benevolent
graha for Mithuna lagna and Mithuna-Chandra.
Budha grants articulatory capabilities in business, particularly in writing, as well as skill in acquiring property and vehicles.
Budha governs conditions in the early childhood home, where the Kumara supports a pragmatic foundational (4) education in the cultural literacy (Budha + 4) of one's people. If Budha is well placed, the native is well-indoctrinated and one easily completes examinations, obtains licenses, and earns diplomas.
Lagnesha Budha in bhava-10 is a public figure, concerned with articulating an orderly regulatory environment (even a radically new rule of order: nichha-bhanga Budha for
Budha in theatrical Simha bhava-3 may be a genius of advertising and public relations - a media mogul. In randhra bhava, lagnesha Makara Budha (esp. if oppressed by drishti of Shani
In bhava-4, the uttama state, lagnesha Budha is a brilliantly analytical measurer and planner concerned with property and vehicle ownership, the securing of shelters, and matters of global education

BPL: example of "Mercury be in his own sign in the 4th" = Microsoft Bill Gates
"For the Gemini Ascendant, Mercury is the lord of the Ascendant and the 4th house.
Guru = L-7+ L-10
Wise and expansive Guru = L-10 plus L-10-from-10 = the double-career lord for Mithuna lagna and Mithuna-Chandra.
Guru periods bring energy into the career by expanding the range of responsibilities and scope of personal influence.
However, for all dvyatmaka (double-natured) rashi = Mithuna, Kanya, Dhanushya, Meena = the 'badhaka' bhava = 7.
Counted from Mithuna lagna or counted from Kanya lagna, Brihaspati = the "bad boy" badhesha who gives hindrance, harm, harassment.
L-7 Brihaspati can generate a surprisingly troublesome experience in regard to growth expectations and humanistic fulfillment in relationships both personal and professional. Alliances are not as expansive or comprehensive perhaps as one thought.
Even considering all of Brihaspati's natural auspiciousness, Guru's Vimshottari periods are likely to produce characteristically Guru-ized problems such as overconfidence, excessive or presumptive optimism, overexpansion, bloated expectations of one's children, overreliance on philosophical or religious beliefs (when hard facts of business may be more relevant) and generally misplaced faith in human goodness.
For one born with Mithunaya radical lagna, Guru L-10 and Guru L-7 10th-from-10th controls the career. Those graha which rule 10th and 7th from Chandra can show the public's emotional response to the importance of one's public persona. Chandra lagna, the 10th from it, and the 7th from it, can also show for what sort of profession one is psycho-emotionally suited. But the rock-bottom social-material reality of Mithunaya's public career is governed by Professor Guru .
If Guru is well placed, in a trine or a kendra, and particularly if the rashi is hospitable, public respect and regard may soar very high.
Brihaspati = an enemy of lagnesha Budha. If Guru is located in a dushthamsha 6, 8, or 12, the level of public respect and reputation in regard to professional activities = generally quite modest. Depending on conditions in the 10th-from-Chandra, one could emotionally enjoy working with the public despite a lack of . However what the public thinks of oneself depends quite considerably upon the disposition of Guru.
Guru = husband
For a woman, Guru = karaka for her (first) husband; therefore if Guru is poorly disposed, her husband's behaviors may contribute to her own rather less elevated reputation. However if Guru is well disposed then career may flourish indeed, doors open to opportunities for high-visibility leadership, and her husband becomes socially distinguished.
The animosity between Guru and lagnesha Budha can sometimes disturb the public's apprehension of Mithunaya's social importance. Guru tends to prefer a broad, optimistic worldview. Thus one of Brihaspati's vulnerabilities can be a tendency toward boasting or proclaiming success based on expectations rather than performance.
Such a disjunction between positive beliefs (Guru) and accurate measurement of results (Budha) = much more pronounced when Brihaspati occupies a dushthamsha. Still, the public may perceived a wavering image if L-10 Guru in the spirit of gleeful optimism pronounces success after success, and yet when Budha the Accountant comes to inspect the financial ledger there is some gap between the positive presumption of success (Guru) and the actual measurable technical performance (Budha).
Mithunaya - naturally a Budha-oriented, crafty, manual, tool-using, skillful, technical expert. Budha *and* Budha's lord must be strong in order to produce a distinctive personality. If Guru occupies a non-kendra/non-trine and Budha lacks strength via combustion or a weak dispositor, the public may perceive if not hypocrisy then at least a chronic ingenuousness
tends to hear the slogans of unified purpose in organizational leadership (10, 7) but this chat may mask an underlying fractiousness; to see agreement (7) where there are competing interests rather than mutual alliance; to assume, presume, and expect loyalty (7) and coherent institutional direction (10) where it would have been more accurate (Budha) to re-analyze and re-calculate the less humanistic reality that was really governing (10) the situation.
If Guru yuti Rahu or Guru+ L-8, may produced a sudden shock of realizing that one's humanistic expectations were unrealistic and that one's leaders-advisers are much cruder than one realized.
Even if Guru is well-disposed, it can be a time of fall from leadership power and loss of collegial relationships due to overestimating the wisdom of one's advisers and superiors. In general, one may receive bad advice that is not malintended but simply unrealistic.
Marriage and Children, Grandchildren
Marriage and children are also affected by the badhesha function of Guru. As a general rule, the spouse is well-qualified and capable yet falls below expectation.
One may place high hopes in spouse and offspring based upon their university education (Guru) or religious vows (Guru) or world travels (Guru). One may believe that a reflective person who prays, meditates, appreciates fine music, or serves others in sanctuary (including animals, plants) must be a saint who can do no wrong. But saints are human.
There is a general life feeling overall for most Mithuna-lagna and Kanya-lagna natives that marriage and usually children too have not realized their growth potential. This feeling is not crippling unless Guru is badly nichha-amza. It mainly expresses as a general ennui,
Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Mithunaya radical nativity is generally a period of great contractual engagement and great career recognition.
Guru's mulatrikona being Dhanushya, overall effects of yuvati-bhava-7 are generally somewhat stronger than the effects of karmasthana-10.
Guru-ratna * yellow sapphire recommendation for Mithuna lagna
from: Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 105
"For the Gemini Ascendant Jupiter will be lord of the 7th and 10th houses.
Still if Jupiter is in the Ascendant, 2nd (where he will be exalted), 4th, 5th. 7th (In his own sign giving rise to Hamsa yoga), 9th, 10th (in his own Sign again giving rise to Hamsa yoga) or 11th,
it will be useful to wear a yellow sapphire in his major and sub-periods.
Those apprehending death on account of old age or some illness or in whose horoscope there are indications some illness or in whose horoscope there are indications of short life, should not wear Yellow Sapphire, as Jupiter is a strong death inflicting planet for this Ascendant."
Shukra Sweet Pleasures
Shukra lord of Taste indicates possessiveness, acquisitive tendencies, sensual pleasures, satisfaction, treasures-and-pleasures, luxuries (Laxmi) and all types of sweets.
as ruler of 5 and 12 for Mithuna lagna, Shukra is especially possessive of children and political power (5) and their realm of fantasy imagination or places of secluded retreat (12)
Shukra the Pleasurer = L-12 from lagna of Mithuna and Vrischika.
For Mithuna, the 12th bhava of sanctuary and private rooms = Vrishabha the sweetly sensual paradise of taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound.
For Vrischika, the 12th bhava = Thula which seeks pleasure more through balance and harmony of social relationships rather than via direct sensual indulgence.
Shukra being 5-12 lord for Mithuna = stronger Mithuna-lagna tendency to indulge in clandestine, private sensual activities notably extramarital romance (12th = 6th from 7, enemies of the marriage). the native may be a delightfully indulgent (Shukra) aficionado of sensual amusements.
Sweet and Tasty Shukra controls the house of Divine Intelligence and Children as well as the house of Private Pleasures and dissolution of the social identity. Shukra's agency promotes reproduction and pleasures from theatre-politics-fashion, as well as pleasures of the more private variety association with the bedroom and long-term foreign residence.
In a male nativity, Shukra = significator of the first wife.
Mithuna lagna or Mithuna-Chandra indicates characteristics of Bhaga and Vyaya in the first wife. Tendency for first wife to enjoy abundant creative and procreative intelligence (5). If Shukra is well placed there is much happiness from children from the first wife. In addition, the wife-1-agent is deeply imaginative (prone to sensual fantasizing) and may live in a foreign land or take long meditation retreats or otherwise seek private sanctuary, away from the native .
from ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 110
"For the Gemini Ascendant, Venus will be lord of the 5th and the 12th houses.
L-8 / L-9
Pragmatic and conventional Shani is a mixed experience for Mithuna lagna and Mithuna-Chandra.
Because Kumbha the moolatrikona rashi = identical to Mithuna's dharmasthana., Shani = usually religiously minded, although in a predictably orthodox fashion which is more oriented to public piety and less to private prayer.
However what the all-good dharma Professor Shani brings, the intensely transformative lord of randhra bhava may then take away. Occult interest may often exceed the motive for public piety, especially if social respect can be earned in some other fashion such as via professional career.
The parts of life which are controlled by Shani are
In order to benefit from this mixed lordship, Shani should be strong by rashi and bhava with positive incoming drishti. Shani gives wisdom not only of the dogmatic 9 variety but also of the hidden 8 variety.
To extract good results from the dual-wisdom (temple truth and the loss of temple truth) the native must possess maturity, neutrality, and adult judgment regarding veracity of information. After about age 60, the L-8 Shani begins to give remarkably valuable wisdom about the cycle of deaths-and-rebirths."
from: ~~ Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 115
For the Gemini Ascendant, Saturn rules the 9th, a trine.
co-lord of Kumbha
Rahu = co-lord of bhagya bhava-9 Kumbha
therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) may become a beneficial amplifier-gem for matters of fatherhood, religious priesthood, taking of important vows, performance of ritual ceremonies, achieving professorship, university culture, and world travel.
However Rahu in either rashi of maraka Guru = dangerous for Mithuna lagna. Even for the priest-or-professor target, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the ruler of bhava-9 and its occupants are highly benevolent
Ketu = 6 + 8
For Mithuna lagna, Professor Ketu = associated with
To predict the effects of Ketu Mahadasha, measure:
Ketu-ratna = helpful for spiritual"witness " practice which can be a component of Mithuna consciousness. Vaidurya could be a beneficial gem in the case that Shani and Mangala are both well disposed.
Even if auspicious, the nature of litigation and lawsuits (6) shall certainly get"scattered". Expect a accusatory conflict style = bhava-6 = withdrawal from direct confrontation with emphasis upon personal detachment leading to complete surrender.
