General Traits of Kanya Lagna - Chandra in Kanya
| Kanya = 12th-from-7th
= necessary (but uncomfortable) transitional phase
Kanya's characteristic imbalance-seeking-a-remedy naturally seeks rebalancing to recover the middle-path via the methods of Medication, Mediation, and Remediation .
At the physical level, graha in Kanya may signal a bodily imbalance-seeking-a-remedy involving great weakness, toxic conditions of the flesh, digestive disorders, and particularly states of dizziness or nausea.At the emotional level, graha in Kanya may be plagued by self-doubt and harassed by enemies.
At the financial level, graha in Kanya 8th-from-11th may signify an upheaval in normal conditions of gainfulness and interruption of profit-making via: exploitation by usurers, poor judgment in financial matters, and apparently unrepayable debt.
At the level of social relationship, graha in Kanya may have agency of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy expectationsthat can produce interpersonal conflict and toxic Other-blaming.
Nevertheless, this imbalance-seeking-a-remedy intermediate state = a necessary phase during a maximally difficult karmic transition for the Divine Self. Kanya represents the specific interim phase :
Kanya = the relatively weak, relatively disempowered,"static" transitional dvisva intermediate zone between Simha's glorious but often excessively egoistic self-centrality into the corrective initiation of true, mutually-responsive human partnership.
From Hubris to Humility
During the cycle of incarnations, when Simha has become over-developed and the ego-membrane is bloated, like all sthira rashi, the Sign of Kings will self-destruct and begin a cycle of rebirth which propels the consciousness into remedial humility of service = Kanya.
Graha in Kanya have agency of transition from a fixed state (Simha, sthira) to an initiating state (Thula, chara). In this rickety and often toxic condition one has relatively little power to change the environment. The exploitive agents within Kanya's environment must be accepted - generally on uncomfortable terms - until one's own role in constructing the unfair arrangements is revealed and released.
Death of the King
Kanya's disenfranchisement is the consequence of its intermediate status. The imperative empowerment of Kingship is gone. Graha in Kanya have evacuated from the self-assuredness of Simha and are now striving for Thula's balance.
This passage marking the death of the king (2nd-from-Simha) is often turbulent, bumpy and uneven.
The Kanya-zone creates a power vacuum which provides many exploitive opportunities for predatory Royal Wannabe's.
Due to the death of entitlements and subconscious awareness that it is going to be a long and winding road toward regaining it (another 10 rashi ahead!) graha in Kanya often acquire a quality of exhaustion and despair.
The not-quite-arrived Kanya graha may produce a physical, mental, emotional, or financial form ofmotion sickness.
The death of the King opens into a scene that features a strong presence of untrustworthy, uncontracted, illegitimate power-seekers who stimulate frustration of the victim yet lacking much power to control external forces.
Kanya-imbalance-seeking-a-remedy is associated with vertigo, nausea and digestive ailments. In frustration with long-lasting conditions of disarray and looking for a quick-fix, Kanya graha (particularly sugary Shukra) may become self-medicating. During a long siege of internal argumentation, Kanya's attempts to right itself during this bumpy ride may produce compensating behaviors such as chemical or sexual addiction.
Best Approach to the Ubhaya Stasis
The best tool to use to resolve Kanya's karma of inappropriately accommodating, unfair agreements is the logic of Budha. Used assiduously, Budha's neutral and accurate reasoning will quickly expose the false expectations which are creating the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.
The nature of all karma is ignorance. At the moment of obtaining consciousness of the fact (Budha) that one is indeed creating the conditions of conflict and servitude from the basis of one's own subconscious beliefs and expectations, One may move speedily out of the old contract and into the new confidence.
("I must remain in this abusive marriage";"I should stay in this exploitive job because I won't be able to find anything better"; I was born with addictive personality";"I'm not worthy of fair treatment"';"All laws are unjust.")
|11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy-Sahangha|| |
befriends "Karkata-06" types:
Kanya often forms a friendly, community-based relationship with one's parents and former schoolteachers (Karkata), by remaining within the network of those who share the customary habits of one's childhood (Karkata). A friend to the farmer and landsman, thus generally a good neighbor within the community of property-owners (Karkata).
The Moon must be well-situated to support the full development of Community that includes one's parents, teachers, and fellow homesteaders.

There are exceptions to all of these general rules. Exceptions are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the Kanya native 's personal goals inter alia.
Cataloguing Disenfranchisement and the Dissolution of Agreements
In personal life, the Kanya native is prone to carry out"Argumentation Dharma" in marriage and family relations.
All of Kanya's disabilities can be corrected by intentionally
"Logos ""The Word"
Similar to Budha's other rashi, Mithuna, Kanya is concerned with mental transactions and communication.
However Kanya's specialty is the logical categorization of information with the ultimate purpose of organizing a detailed argument.
Budha = Hermes = the wings on the caduceus
Internal Criticism and Self-Doubt
As the natural sixth rashi, Kanya's position in 12th-from-7th = loss of balance, is always problematic. 7th = trust. Self-doubt arises in the human mind, on the basis of a lack of trust.
Natural communities, friendship networks, and sangha
Karkata: befriends the home-landers, home-owners, parents and caretakers; stewards and custodians;
those less concerned with drama, fashion or politics; schools and schoolteachers, those who care for buildings and vehicles; the security-oriented
Kanya dislikes Kumbha
6th-from-kanya = Kumbha = things toward which Kumbha is hostile:
Cleaning the Psychic and Physical Space
H.H. Tenzin Gyatso,
Path to Bliss: A Practical Guide to Stages of Meditation
"The environment where you are doing the meditation should be properly cleaned.
Therefore, as you cleanse the environment, think that you are also purifying your mind.
Develop the very strong thought that by cleaning this place you are inviting the host of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who are the most supreme merit field,
and that you will subsequently engage in a path that will enable you to purge your mind of the stains of delusions."
