Competition for social validation .
In order to win the competition for validation a person needs the power to move. Ideally, the spirit should manifest a fleshly form that is energetic, kinetic, dynamic, hot-blooded, healthy, vital, muscular. The annamayakosha (food-eating-body) when successfully developed should be capable of movements such as running, swimming, hunting, dancing, birthing, and all types of active pursuit.
The Vrischika native seeks to develop the physical personality identity through association with surgeons and healers, emergency responders and trauma specialists, agents of inheritance and taxation, and those in possession of secret or confidential information- especially hidden monies.
The social personality has an inherent affinity for invasion, diving, mysteries, dangerous environments, penetration, discovery, detective work, forensic science, magic, tantric sexual practice, and (when evolved) kundalini yoga.
Vrischika-1 = particularly influenced by one's in-laws (8) whether favorably or not. One may observe the father's life "dissolve" through his own constitutional debility(8) during the earlier decades of one's own life.
Vrischika natives are generally Aware of hidden signals, sexually and psychologically alert, agile and muscularly strong folk who have a physical interest in achieving domination and control.
They strive to maintain a competitively dominantpersonality and physical appearance.
Mangala-ruled Vrischika lagna natives tend to possess a favorable musculature, attractive curves, and athletic capabilities, as well as a mysteriously magical quality.
Due to Mangala, complexion will tend to appear colored on the darker end of the normal genetic range for one's ethnicity.
As a group, Scorpio natives are rather secretive and competitive. They are master strategists and naturally instinctive hunters who like to pursue mysterious prey. The object of conquest may be a healing psychiatric memory-breakthrough, a shocking stock-market coup, forbidden sexual imagery, or the complex stalk-and-kill of dangerous, evasive game.
In contests, they prefer to win by shrewd and skillful means. The dignity of Mars will determine whether by fair means - or foul.
For Vrischika lagna, Ketu afflicts the
house of The physical body appearance and social personality The Vrischika native is raised with an active
(Kuja) even dominating but also ambivalent (Ketu) approach toward asserting
one's social identity. The physical body is muscularly strongbut
also very sensitive psychically.
Vrischika-1 's body image perception may be
confused: on the one hand, Kuja gives sexual prowess, muscular competitive
strength, and a joy in movement. On the other hand, Ketu contributes a
mystical detachment which can result in a fundamental ambivalence toward the
body and its care. Kuja's warrior confidence and Ketu's lack of
boundaries combine to create a tendency for Vrischika-1 to enter physically
dangerous situations. Self-destructive behaviors may emerge
during Vimshottari dasha periods of Kuja or Ketu.

Dhanusha = Sagittarius
enemy's natural house
Values, food, family, stored wealth
Guru -Jupiter:Wisdom Expansion swabhava ofnon-friend Shukra. Guru's governance is greatly impeded in the house of rakshaka-pati, guru of demons Shukra.
Despite auspicious implication for expansive Guru ruling the money and values house, Guru's animosity toward Shukra's sensuality creates conflict in this house.
Kaurpi natives enjoy wealth and pleasures, but Guru wants the sensual experience to result in wisdom. Therefore money, knowledge, pleasures, family, must be generously shared and harnessed to higher, humanistic goals.
For Vrischika lagna, presuming that Guru is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-5 Guru generate considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via creative genius, including children, speculation, theatre, romance, and games.
If Guru is well disposed, the Vrischika native is generous in sharing one's blessings. Broad humanistic and philosophical values; speaks pleasantly and shares knowledge easily with others.Often gifted with knowledge of languages. Wonderful storytellers (depending on disposition of Budha) who generally knows a good deal about the history of one's people.
Presuming that Guru is in good condition,enjoys abundant food throughout life. In middle and later years or during Guru periods they tend toward overweight from overgrazing. Balanced and regular physical exercise will cure this situation and guarantee Scorpio folks an attractive body during their later years.
Vrischika lagna is prone toward wide-ranging philosophical discussions which allow them to display their learning. Wonderful humanistic educators who teach through personal stories and example - Guru is also L-5. They enjoy the world of good food and wine; and value generosity and compassion. Second marriage to a sensual, optimistic, world-traveling humanist, who is typically a guide or teacher.
Makara = Capricorn
Shani -Saturn: Karmic Cleanup
Communication/ mental process
Shani's governance is well supported in the swabhava of friend Budha.
Mentality can be excessively sober, featuring a jaded realism. Depending entirely on Shani's condition, Thinking process itself may be slightly or significantly negative: prone to worrying and what-if's. These are worst-case scenario thinkers and planners, always checking to see where the rubber meets the road... . They are absolutely the people you want with you in an emergency, but when normal patterns start again they can seem a bit over-prepared.
Fabulous emergency-services professionals, can deal calmly and articulately with death (Budha lord of bhava-8, hidden matters) and massive disruptions... Handles taboo-breaking aberrations like corpses, diapers, and mental illness in a practical, down-to-earth way.
bhava-3 is a place of planning, meetings, schedules, and organizing of information. When Shani rules it, Vrischika-1 is deadly organized and efficient, but often saddled with an impossibly heavy workload. Often found therefore in corporate and government positions of significant responsibility for mission-critical functions. Yetm understaffed and overscheduled to the point of collapse.
May be compulsive testers, with little faith in divine providence - at least in large-scale operations! Tend to believe more in the power of the working people (Shani) to get the job done, and less in the power of big whigs to know much at all. Hard workers, with a clear grasp of human weakness.
Kumbha = Aquarius
Shani yuti Rahu
Home, upbringing parents, family, security, education
Shani = enemy of the natural regulator Chandra.
Due to Rahu, at least one of the parents takes a giant leap upward in social standing, during the child's lifetime. This parent hails from a minor social station and catapults into a distinguished or prestigious rank. Methods to accomplish Rahu's Great Leap Upward include parental immigration to a new homeland, parental advancement via schooling credentials, and parental status leap via dealings in real-estate or vehicles.
For Vrischika lagna, bhava-4 is ruled by Shani +Rahu ( Enemies of Chandra) ; therefore expect some complication along the path to achieving the deepest physical and emotional security in life, due to rigidity and resistance paired with a strong desire to Leap to the Top (Rahu) .
Security is almost completely defined by one's social network = "who you know" much more important to one's sense of place in the world than "what you know"
For Kaurpi natives, matters of home and family are serious business. These natives may be spontaneous and creative in other areas of life but the home is conservative, stable and rule-driven.
Regardless of income level (which is determined by Budha and bhava-11) Vrischika-1 may experiences delay in settlementor obtaining a home. Basic expectations of simplicity, austerity, and even poverty in the home. Shani gives best results with age, so the most typical pattern is delay followed by acquisition of a permanent home in later life.
The home should be an Orderly and conventionalplace. Although much depends on Shani's disposition, Vrischika-1 will desire fixed schedules, regular maintenance, and predictable relationships in the home.
Education is important but it must be practical.Children's homework is attended, and clear thinking is encouraged.
Realistic professional, applied craft, or pragmatic programs of study will be completed with discipline. Frequent delays in educationare common, due to real life responsibilities, changes in public economy, and other large social structural pressures.
If benefics also influence bhava-4, there may be more permission to pursue luxuries of art or humanistic education.
Disciplined approach to home management means that both parents typically work. Whether the family are farmers or teachers or merchants, everyone in the household joins the work force at an early age. Limited tolerance for pleasure-only activities, even for children. If family holidays can be afforded, they are economical and predictably scheduled.
These folks will buy permanent homes in retirement... and surprise everyone who knew them as peripatetic world travelers, by camping in their final home, rarely emerging, until death.
Nakranatives bear a great sense of responsibility toward their family. One makes every effort to have their temporary homes feel stable and cozy by repeating structures and traditions.
traditional religious celebrations are very important (Moon is lord of religion-9). They maintain family cohesiveness by telling traditional tales, celebrating cultural holidays together, and keeping large memory collections.
For Vrischika lagna,Rahu afflicts fourth houseof foundations, early childhood home, emotional security, belongingness, and roots.
Mixed signalsoperate in the early childhood home and education (4). The education is materially well connected and scientific but the educational viewpoint is limited to commonly accepted materialistic ideology of the masses (Shani) and (depending on Shani's disposition) may be somewhat rigid or narrow.
While overall a stable environment, the childhood home is nevertheless subject to sudden attacks of upheaval due to passionate behavior of the parents or caretakers. The parents will be scientific-minded and culturally unusual. he parents may suddenly separate or divorce, claiming a progressive ideological (Kumbha) reason for their choice to disrupt the family home.
Naturally there will be more upheaval in the home during any period of Rahu which coincides with the period of emotional dependence upon the parents.
Although general an adequate placement for sustained ownership of non-moveable wealth (shelters and lands) + moveable shelters (vehicles), some combinations spell loss.
Meena = Pisces
Guru- Jupiter:Wisdom Expansion
Guru's governance is well supported in the swabhava offriend Surya.
Vrizcikeza risingis wise and enthusiastic, with a broad range of intelligent self-expression modalities. However, the favorite mode of enjoyment and self-promotion - depending of course on the health of Jupiter - is children. This sign delights in the intuitive, open-minded, creative genius of children. The are by and large marvelous teachers, gurus, and coaches because of their genuine love of the creative process, and their ability to find the divine in all life forms.
For Vrischika lagna, presuming that Guru is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-5 Guru generate considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via creative genius, including children, speculation, theatre, romance, and games.
Speculation, a key skill of Putra Bhava, is very attractive to Kaurpi lagna. Vrischika natives tend to prosper in high-end gambling such as stock market and luxury real estate investments. Guru's expansive influence on the child house almost always brings offspring in Guru's periods; during these auspicious times matters of fine and performance art, speculation, literary endeavors, and socially admirable acts such as gathering art collections or endowing libraries (with Vrischika-1 's name carve in the cornerstone, of course) will flourish.
ends to win at calculated-risk gambling.
Mesha = Aries
The maha-dusthamsha = "double trouble" for Vrischika lagna
Mangala's governance is greatly impeded in the swabhava ofenemy Budha.
Health can be compromised by over-working, under-sleeping, and burning the midnight oil in search of the competitive mental edge. Verbal aggression. Too much competitive thrust exacerbates conflict, and tends to wear down Kaurpi's health. Predicts that health issues will manifest Mars qualities such as fevers from infection, blood disease, blood pressure, shellshock, battle exhaustion, torn muscles, cuts, bruises, and pelvic/abdominal ailments.
Depending on condition of Kuja, will tend to have some serious enemies. May be unpopular, or perceived as ruthlessly competitive. Esp. during Mars periods, profound animosity with roots in past-life aggression will flare up into the current life with no warning. Sometimes the body creates an illness to burn off the karma. But more often there is a fight, accusations, and scramble for perceived scarce resources.
These are workplace warriors who want everything done right - so of course they need to do it themselves. Their competence, drive, and intolerance for error makes enemies amongst coworkers, particularly the poorly qualified. Scorpio natives put their whole personality into their work (Mars is lord of both lagna and Ripu bhava - "ripu" means enemy).
Only Vrishabha rising, where Shukra rules 1 and 6, invest the same amount of Self into workplace problem-solving. Unfortunately, being self-identified problem-fixers, Scorpio rising takes their work much too seriously and others associate them with the problems they talk about - all the time.
Vrischika folk may get into trouble during periods of the 6th lord, mainly due to their military-style inability to lighten up.
Usually its a case of 'don't fire me, I quit'. After quitting (and good riddance) they often get that phone call for help, by the desperate person currently trying to do their job half as well as they did... But by then, the bridge is burnt.
The work-energized Vrischika 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.
|If Surya in 6||
If Surya in 6: at the entrance to Mesha rashi = Mesha Samkramati (sankranti) = warrior's ego in 6 = conflicts, illness. Ravi is poised at the entrance to the competitive battleground.
Surya-Azwini shows the ambivalence toward consequences (a good trait in a warrior) = generally strong performance in male-dominated environments.

Vrishabha = Taurus
Shukra's governance is strongly supported in the Shukra's own natural house.
Marriage is about pleasure. Passionate, sensual, essence-of-relationship, pure human Love. Viability of marriage depends as always on the condition of Shukra. Shukra the karaka for romantic love is lord of the marriage house, for both Scorpio and Aries natives.
Therefore the spouse is normally handsome or attractive in some sensual way. (Details of spousal appearance are determined by Shukra's characteristics.)
Contracts, agreements, legal discussions, all types of advising are smooth and easy. Divorce is common however. Kaurpi lagna are lovers, not fighters, in the marriage scene - they'd rather split on fair terms and try for lasting love, again.
Plus, for these folk, Guru rules bhava-2 for second marriage, and Moon rules bhava-9 for third marriage. They rarely have a fourth marriage because Shani rules bhava-4.
Vrischika lagna native will cheerfully proceed to a 2nd and 3rd union, knowing that their sexual vitality is strong (Kuja ruled lagna) and the romantic fires unquenchable (Shukra lord of 7).
Sensual lovers and attentive spouses, they are lifelong romantics - always looking for something beautiful in the partner - and usually, easily, finding it.
The Vrischika native marries not for purposes of starting a family or fulfilling a duty, but rather in order to increase the amount of beauty, pleasure, and harmony in their life.
For males, if Ketu in 7 = self-identified as a married man, yet chronically unable to establish the intimacy of psychological connection.
Often, openness to alternative sexual practices or apathetic toward promises, contracts, and the longer-term shared mutual interest with the spouse.
Nevertheless the spouse is charming, gracious, balanced in appearance, accommodating, and never far from the money.
"If Vrisa or Libra or Venus's Navamsha be descending, the husband will be of good form and of good look and will be fond of his wife."
~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 2 4 Shloka 11
If at woman's birth, the 7th bhava or the setting Navamsha be that of Venus, her husband will be fortunate, very good looking and will be liked by women.

Mithuna = Gemini
Budha's governance is not impeded in the swabhava ofneutral Mangala.
Joint assets of marriage, secret matters, in-laws, therapeutics, healing, taboos, taxes, tantra
Budha vs lagnesha Kuja yuti Ketu = analysis vs gut instinct
Interactions of Budha and Kuja are often problematic in Jyotisha. Direct-action lagnesha Kuja takes a great dislike to waffling, wordy 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 aggressions. 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.
In the case of Randhra bhava for the Vrischika nativity, bhava-8 is the swabhava ofKuja and Kuja also has personality-defining power as the lagnesha. Therefore Kuja makes an effort (often frustrated) to keep the two domains of Budha 8 + 11 "short and sweet".
Direct action in emergencies.
For Mesha lagna and Vrischika lagna, lagnesha Mangala in residence of Randhra bhava often signifies professional action in one of the emergency response skill sets.
Quick Holistic Impressions
The end result, unless Budha is strong in Mithuna or Kanya, can be hasty decisions based on gut instinct rather than Budha's preferred style of detailed analysis.
Chandra's governance is not impeded in the swabhava ofneutral Guru.
Father, Ceremonial Religion, Philosophical Knowledge, Priesthood
Vrischika lagna natives are often born into Temple or university families; the mother (Chandra) is often a professor or priestess; and father (L-9) may also be a professor or priest
An deep faith is present in their lives, based largely on their direct emotional connection to Nature and Earth. They may not recognize this faith as any type of formal religion. Often, one's belief system is faithful to a deeper truth.
Religious convictions are grounded in the intuitive mind, proven by the cycles of nature, with need of support from orthodox authorities. (9th house, as 12th-from-10th, dissolves attachment to public dogma.)
Yet, religious feeling is authentic. Scorpio rising are natural bhakti-yogin. They aspire to pure dedication, as the seek the deep, unconditional embrace of the Mother's love.
Parents and nearby society display religious values clearly during their childhoods, and a strong but compassionate moral framework supports early ego development. Natural trust of religious authorities and very little urge to test their principles against other religious systems. Charmingly pure - if sometimes naive.
Simha = Leo
Despite the auspicious implications for profession suggested by career-karaka Surya as lord of the career-bhava, the conflict between temporal lord Surya vs. natural regulator Shani = inauspicious for easy experience in leadership roles.
Simha's bhava, similar to the bhava containing Surya, indicates an area of life in which Vrischika-1 seeks center-stage praise and attention. Simha brings expectations of a regal, privileged, autocratic experience in the house ruled.
Depending on Surya's radiance in the nativity, Vrizcikeza-lagna folk are normally quite capable at the high executive levels. In addition+ L-5 Guru increases their entitlement to authority in their field of expertise. The ego wants to hold top office.
Leadership Entitlement Ego
The ideal leadership style = Shani = neutral, lawful, orderly, procedural, impersonal, austere
Ali lagna bring Surya's high confidence to leadership positions, but they also set performance standards too high. Ironically, they often cannot meet their own expectations. If L-6 Kuja is strong, conflict with servants and the masses generally can be exacerbated. As a result of the Shani-Surya animosity, the people do not trust Ali-lagna in leadership roles - despite their expertise.
If Surya is very tame, prestige may be easier to achieve. Drishti of Shani to bhava-10 is also beneficial for leadership legitimacy, as it helps constrain Vrischika-1 to follow social rules.
Professional Success depends on Surya
Ideally Surya will be angular and receive friendly drishti. But even a poorly placed Surya will contribute confidence and an assertive, self-focused attitude in leadership roles.
Professional reputation flourishes in specialties of celebrity and political power. Vrischika enjoys business administration (3) when they have an adequate structure (Makara, 3) to express theirsense of social ranking in well-ordered groups.
Shani being L-3+L-4, matters related to collaborative work groups (3), production of reports and and announcements (3) and regulation of parenting (4) will constitute their heaviest professional and personal burden.
Vrischika enjoys managing transactions (3) that contain regulatory policies and bureaucratic information (Makara) and collaborating on teams with people who possess rank and social position (Makara, 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.
Budha's governance is not impeded in the swabhava ofneutral Shani.
Labha bhava 11 = Kanya = analysis, argumentation, toxicity, laborers
Lagnesha Budha rules:
Vrischika rather naturally acquires confidential information about hidden wealth (8) and Vrischika-1 may be quite skilled at tax accountancy.
A Vrischika native came for consultation; his uttama-Budha in 11 promised financial prosperity and his wife's money (8) was modest but properly accounted. Furthermore he was friendly with his multi-cultural in-laws (Mithuna, 8).
However if Budha occupies a dusthamsha, the spouse's money may be a contentious subject.
A Vrischika native came to see me who had L-8 Budha ill-disposed in 6 with hostile incoming drishti. He was a wealthy man. He felt profoundly bitter about losing half of his substantial (and somewhat illicitly gained) estate and was engaged in endless legal accusations (6) against his ex-wife
Presuming Budha is in good condition, Scorpio lagna is gainful - particularly in the modern information economy. The Vrischika native has strong analysis and reporting skills which are highly valuable in today's international markets.
Friendships tend to be based on shared pursuit of immediate conversation and exchange of circumstantially important information. As a friend and network participant, the native is rather superficially engaged in helping others to achieve their material and professional goals. Likes to engage in joint planning and discussions toward immediate shared goals, but less committed toward the longer-term development of a community.
After the team project of the moment has concluded, the native will generally retreat into the bosom of the family. Not a community person by nature. Although if Budha is well-disposed, the native may be a highly effective talker. One uses words to get what one wants. Effective in meetings; often perceived as intelligent and well-informed.
uttama-Budha in 11 is a quick and efficient developer of nearly instantaneous relationships. Able to extract the important information from a relationship immediately and accurately. Knows "what the problem is". May specialize in discovery and recording of arguments and conflict scripts. Excellent for police detective, investigator, forensic science.
A female Vrischika will have more male friends than female; and those females whom she does count as a friend should be quite sporty.
Most likely friends are siblings, school-mates, team-mates on production teams. It is beneficial for this native to play team sports so that one may enjoy the instrumental but cheerful benefits of the sporting network affording travel and social opportunities. Another alternative is to join a religious community or Sangha which may provide the large-group structure of belonging.
Without engagement in some variety of instrumental, short-term goal oriented teamwork, the Vrischika native who lacks deeper group bonding skills may become isolated.
Relationships with siblings, cousins, and former school-mates may constitute one's best lifelong network.
if L-6 in 11:
Presence of L-6 Kuja in Kanya-11 can indicate one who becomes friendly with soldiers and police. Good for membership in the 'brotherhood' of weapons-users, including hunters-fishers and athletes, but excludes others less empowered.
= 12th from Vrischika navamsha
= 12th from Vrischika Chandra
Vyaya bhava 12 = Thula = sense pleasures, private delights, imaginative arts
Kalatrakaraka Shukra lord of yuvati-bhava increases marital harmony but also introduces enemies of the marriage.
Bhava-12 is a lovely sanctuary space providing many gracious pleasures, and travel away from the homeland tends to be a luxurious experience (nice hotels, even nice prisons). Nevertheless Shukra lord of 12 evokes enemies of the marriage = 12th from 7th.
Depending on the strength of Shukra, amorous opportunity awaits Vrischika-1 in hostels hospitals and hotels; in dreams and dormitories, monasteries; long journeys abroad; and within the confines of the artistic imagination. The role of the Muse is much increased in this life.
The meditation and inner sanctuary house is much aided by pleasant lord Shukra lord of Music and the Mouth, who increases the delicate sensual practices of private 'studio' imaginative arts, savoring of delicious foods, and all variety of bed pleasures. Deep healing through relaxation using essential oils, sensual touch, and profound "bed pleasures" brings them into a meditative state.
Enemies of the first marriage, always indicated by the L-12 and graha within Vyaya bhava, tend to be females with diplomatic and negotiating skills. They are gracious and well-mannered, generally quite attractive, and enjoy harmonious relationships.
Enemies of the second marriage, always indicated by the L-7 and graha within yuvati bhava, are females (notably the first wife) who are possessed of sensual beauty, enjoy luxuries, and control considerable wealth.
The first and second wives, both in a 6/8 relationship to each other, are locked into a disagreeable state.
Body-calming meditation and spa-type deep relaxation are very accessible. Healing sanctuaries, fine hotels and lovely ashrams readily open their doors. However, with Shukra as 12th lord it may be tempting to take the false route to bliss - drugs and alcohol - rather than Sattvic meditation and prayer.
Vrischika-lagna enjoys foreign travel immensely. Along with the marital romance and sexuality of yuvati bhava, bhava-12 is the other major source of pleasure for them. If Shukra is strong, they take up residence in foreign lands during Shukra's (or Rahu's) periods. However their search for perfect pleasure is satisfied only in the world of their imaginations.
