Fruits of the 12 Bhava
from Kumbha Lagna
12 houses from the Aquarius ascendant
Kumbha = Bhava 1 - Appearances-
Lagnesha Shani co-ruler along with Rahu
This unlikely pair rules a natural Bhava * swabhava of enemy Mangala.
bhava-1 signifies personal competition for social validation through a winning combination of physical behaviors and traits.
The Kumbha native seeks to develop the physical personality identity through association with science and conceptual, electronic, or social networks; marketplace connections including fundraising for progressive social causes; relationship to elders and mentors.
In particular, the Kumbha native - thought one's path may be difficult - will realize one's desires in this life, fulfilling (by peculiar or eccentric means) a remarkable range of spiritual goals.
Appearance depends significantly on the Shani and Rahu condition = rashi, Bhava, companion planets, drishti, etc..
The Kumbha native has been said to look gnome-like. There is something gnarly, sinewy, compressed, or shrunken about the overall physique.
Dhanisthalagna or Chandra is associated with crazed eating behaviors and marvelous dancing abilities (Kumbha = drums and pulsing beats).
Due to the Shani-Rahu combat they are quirky and scientific and can make sudden, terrible, or brilliant moves.
Tendency to manifest the Rahu element of Kumbhu which gives exotic scientific knowledge, often far ahead of its time.
the native is juggling Shani's signal to conform and reduce one's size in order to be more efficient, versus Rahu's desire to quest for new experiences and enjoy the thrill of risk. the native may be perceived as crazy or highly polarized in personality.
the native is aware of interspecies connections and if too much vocal about this awareness may find oneself ostracized. In general the Kumbha native needs to be moving constantly in order to prevent Rahu, Shani, and Mangala from going to war inside the personality. If lagna = Dhanishtha Nakshatra, the Kumbha native may be an excellent dancer.
Zatabhishaka lagna has a tendency toward chronic depression which can be alleviated through movement. The appearance changes over time, sometimes dramatically.
When Shani dominates in the Vimshottari Dasha or by result of a strong transit, the native looks and acts quite conventional, even staunchly conservative. However when Rahu dominates, the native may take enormous risks to address a driving passion. the native may even "hear voices" at times when the conflict between Shani and Rahu reaches a peak.
Rahu tends to destroy Shani's physical stability, and find that one's inner direction creates health problems (due to Chandra L-6) plague Kumbha-lagna folk will have a vata Or slightly blue-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.) Kumbha's intuition comes from Shani = L-12 and also L-1.
Kumbha is a common birth lagna amongst gifted psychics. Typically the native is hardworking, but one has a universalist viewpoint that promotes personal work as a vehicle for social change.
Kumbha's perceptions focus on large-scale patterns of human reality. Natural scientists, but may not be able to articulate their findings due the eccentric nature of the methods employed. Can be spacey and abstract.
Values, Knowledge, Languages, Collections, Wealth, Acquisition, Accrual, Banking, Storage, Hoards, History, Face, Speech, Song
Guru. governs a swabhava * swabhava ofenemy Shukra.
Despite auspicious implication for expansion-karaka Guru ruling the money and values Bhava, Guru's animosity toward Shukra's sensuality creates conflict in this Bhava.
For Kumbha lagna, presuming that Guru is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-11 Guru generate considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via earned income from the marketplace of goods and services.
Values are broadly compassionate, with special concern for welfare of children and the disenfranchised. Depending on condition of Guru in D-1/D-9, they have extremely charitable views that cause them to give away their own wealth to those in need - thus plunging the native into need themselves!
Not overly identified with their personal birth families, due to their cosmic perspective which places them more in the human family. Often remain childlike, always dependent, unable to acquire the full means of their own support (unless Shani is quite strong or Moon is independent). The second marriage may be very supportive yet accommodating the free spirit, if Guru is auspiciously placed.
Mental Process, narrative, communications, writing, publications, business administration, commerce, siblings, teamwork, conversational interaction
Kuja governs a swabhava * swabhava ofBudha Mental health is volatile with warrior Mars at the helm. Innovation, ingenuity, and impatience. Kumbha natives endure a prolonged adolescence, reaching well into adulthood. Mangala keeps the native scheming about new ideas and new plans for their worldly success.
When favorably placed+ L-3 Mars gives success in "new ideas" business such as sales, marketing, product development, advertising etc. When Mars is not dignified, a million new ideas burst into flame and die because Kumbha lagna lacks the ego drive to push concepts to completion. Thinking process is positive but impatient for results.
Works best in a team that can assume detailed follow-through after Kumbhadharahas birthed the cosmic concept. Likes to talk, but may not be able to explain where their ideas come from. Extremely independent-minded.
Likes to socialize around the theme of physical prowess, such as body-shaping exercise, athletic dance, hairstyling and beauty culture, individual sports that focus on personal speed or musculature. self-made capital wealth (when available) via making development plans for individuals to change their minds and/or bodies, or to achieve more independent lifestyles.
Bhava 4 * Home, family, security
Vrishabha * Taurus
Vrishabha * emotional (Chandra's Bhava) need to establish security via acquisition of lands, Bhavas, and vehicles.
For Kumbha lagna, bhava-4 = ruled by Shukra * Enemy of Chandra ; therefore, some complication along the path to achieving the deepest physical and emotional security in life.
Problems in the childhood home or with the parents are often related to ostentatious materialism of the parents which results in exaggerated luxury entitlements in the child they have raised.
Home and Vehicle Ownership
Although general a positive placement for sensual happiness via ownership of non-moveable wealth (shelters and lands) + moveable shelters (vehicles), some combinations spell loss.
Parents = sweets
The parents are property-owners Lands-management or deeds of title to various buildings is a core feature of their social identity.
the native feels sentimental affection for the parents even if the caretakers have harmed them. This is a sweet position for relationship to the parents and home culture under almost all circumstances, except when Shukra = nichha-amza.
Shukra-4 Malavya Yoga or Chandra-uttama-4 favors the acquisition of luxurious estates, palatial homes, and highly expensive vehicles.
If rental properties are owned, tenants should be females such as school-teachers, mothers, and other pleasant ladies.
Sweetness in the roots of home and homeland. Depending on Shukra's condition, tend to have tastefully decorated homes where they enjoy nice dinners. Like to share their extended family feeling of abundance and luxury, inviting neighbors and colleagues into their lush homes.
Quality and location of home is very important; ideally it should have a natural setting in field or forest, and home design reflecting the natural environment., Comfort and luxurious furnishings are hallmarks of their home style.
Characteristics of Shukra will determine how this aesthetic is expressed. E.g., if Shukra occupied Kumbha the home decor will be quite eccentric or even 2nd-hand-chic, but if Shukra is in Vrishabha the home will be comfortable, cushioned, and traditional .
Bhava 5 * children, creative intelligence, genius, politics, theatre, games, performance arts
Mithuna * Gemini
Budha rules swabhava of Surya
Self-expression channels naturally along literary lines.
Children are intelligent and talkative. If Budha is well disposed, success in political campaigns, speculation and prediction, theatrical performance, promotion of creative literary works, sports coaching. Likes literature and authorship, languages and talk about languages, political discussions, current events, and the company of articulate people.
Sympathetic, nourishing, sheltering Chandra rules bhava-6; therefore, Kumbha is fundamentally conflict- oriented and loyal to the problematic home environment.
Dedicated to the ill parents (esp conflicted mother); the distrust, divorce, disagreement, accusations, blaming or crime in the home culture; also, protective of the physicians, druggists, exploiters and exploited, the servants, the military, the addicts and the diseased.
May defend and protect (Chandra) any ill, exploited or addicted person, even a criminal who has harmed others.
If Chandra is afflicted, emotionally based self-medication issues may arise.
Kumbha becomes a good lagna for those who work sympathetically with the victim class. Splendid for physicians, particularly in mass-treatment situations such as public health and epidemiology. If Budha is well placed, good lagna for "public defender" attorneys who defend criminals.
Debt and illness cycles fluctuate significantly, depending on the mood of the Moon. Watch the Vimshottari periods of Soma for ebb and flow of the Ocean-tides of internal argumentation. If Chandra is compromised, there can be noticeable health effects due to emotional holding onto the past, particularly around the 4th chakra (breast, chest, heart, lymph).
Kumbha natives tend to be born to mothers who are engaged in exploitive service work, a victim of severe debt or social conflict (even war), or struggling with health problems, or in a state of marital disagreement. The most likely situation is that the Kumbha native is born to a mother who accepts a state of chronic dissatisfaction in her marriage by internalizing her grievances.
The child intuitively absorbs the mother's chronic (often unspoken) argumentation. Kumbha has trouble in emotional relationships throughout life, due to this implicit expectation that emotional security must be purchased at the cost of exploitation and ill health.
Chronic Emotional conflict
Depending on condition of Chandra, will tend to have a very deep emotional attachment to one's own enemies. It is especially difficult for the Kumbha native to break out of adversarial relationships; a mutual disaffection is emotionally comforting (traceable to the pre-natal state.)
If the lord of belief systems+ L-9 Shukra, is favorable, the Kumbha native may believe (mentally) in the power and reality of Forgiveness, but will continue to hold a grudge emotionally due to the ironically comforting effects of constant disagreement (a signal of security and belonging).
Instinctive pull toward challenging human service positions, where one can become involved in chronic physical, emotional, or social conflicts. Marvelous placements for those working in geriatric medicine, or other ministries of service in which palliative treatment is expected, rather than resolution or cure.
Usually they care deeply about health, theirs and others', while continuing to practice repetitive emotional behaviors that might not be too healthy at all.
They get into trouble during periods of the 6th lord just like everyone else, but their loving heart and normally good intentions of healing everyone into the great human family get them off the hook. (Except when Chandra occupies Scorpio or is yuti a malefic - then it's "me first".) Even when they bumble through wrong-headedly, using good intentions and generous feelings where solid logic and a real plan are needed to solve basic human problems - they're pretty nice folks,
Surya vs Shani yuti Rahu
Kumbha * in many ways the single most difficult lagna for purpose of satisfaction in relationships, whether business partnership or marriage.
Centrality Entitlement Ego
The best partnering style * Shukra * balanced, equable, committed to maintaining equity of investment and returns, agreeable, Other-oriented, paired, two-parts
Kumbha can "act out" via applause-seeking in the first marriage. Yet, Ravi rules only one bhava, therefore (usually) most of drama is contained within the first marriage. The second marriage may be easier. End of drama is helped if no graha yuti Surya or if beneficial graha in bhava-2.
Surya vs Shukra
Due to the adversarial relationship between Shukra, the natural regulator of alliance and unions, with Surya, the natural regulator of center-stage genius and the divine ideal, partnership for Kumbha lagna is fraught with internal inconsistency of expectation and outcome.
The single leading cause of unhappiness in the Kumbha partnership behavior is a theatrical tendency to idealize the basic animal mating-collecting behaviors, idolize a perfectionist concept of marriage and deify the human partner.
Kumbha = overall seeking to partner with a kingly-queenly type of personality: one who enjoys attention, can control a room, is confident, intelligent, beautifully appointed in ornament and dress, and seems to bring the Light of divine beauty wherever this splendid person goes.
Kumbha as lord of navamsha is particularly troublesome unless some pragmatic force such as Shani in Kumbha corrects the idealization error. Shukra in Kumbha can have some similar results.
Kumbha is Surya the Self rules the Bhava of His bitter enemy Shukra the Partnership.
Marriage = conflicted
Kumbha is attracted to partners with strong, center-stage, ego-driven personalities. Kumbha natives project attributes upon life partner which are highly idealized, golden and radiant, nearly godlike.
Particularly when Simha rules the 7th navamsha, the mate shows brilliant, amusing, entertaining intelligence. One who naturally takes the center position in any group, radiating light and divine genius to everyone in their court. The Kumbha suitor is a member of this courtly audience; one admirer amongst many.
Kumbha's broad, morally neutral, complex-systems worldview does not readily admit a "central" position because Kumbha operates in the framework of distributed systems. Yet as difficult as the axis of Kumbha-Surya can be, Kumbha does have a psychological predisposition to find a partner who is in some fashion the charismatic Center of a web that has no center.
If Surya is well disposed in the Kumbha-lagna nativity, the native will marry a confident, self-possessed, noble partner. This partner requires admiration and applause; and opportunity to express the natural genius in some literary, theatrical, or political setting. Generally it is a bit easier when the person with Simha on 7th navamsha is female with a male partner, since Surya indicates a male
Kumbha functions a bit like a stage-manager for the partner, managing the partner's affairs in a dutiful (Shani) background style,and basking in the light of the spouse's theatrical, literary, or political talent.
If Surya is poorly placed, the spouse can become an egomaniac, demanding constant attention and presuming that the marriage partner orbits around their royal self. This dilemma is not a problem with domination but rather a politicizing of the issues in the marriage and a self-centered "acting out"which over-emphasizes the natural theatrical talents of Simha.
Under stress, the Kumbha native tends to distance oneself, retreating into work, the company of friends or large-scale social change projects. A Kumbha male in particular will retreat into goal-oriented gainfulness, removing oneself from competition for time in spotlight; Kumbha can easily focus upon long-term goals and earnings with no need to receive personal attention.
The downside of this arrangement
can develop when stress forces Surya's characteristics to take their negative expression. Self-possession can deteriorate, under duress, into self-centeredness. After a courtship noble and intelligent, as Kumbha retreats into the natural spacey, friendly, networking and group-oriented social behaviors, while the attention-deprived spouse may become flamboyant and demanding, or sulking and withdrawn in a ploy for dramatic sympathy.Should the Surya partner perceive a threat to their center-stage entitlement, a royal rage for attention may ensue.
The relationship can become inflexible due to the polarization of Kumbha's understanding of the world, which is distinctively hard-working, neutral, future-oriented and scientific; versus the Sun's desire for personal, creative, opinionated, immediate centrality.
There are many exceptions
to the negative forecast, particularly when the two lunar Nakshatra are well matched and the radix Chandra of partner-A occupies the navamsha of partner-B and vice versa. These stronger unions will weather most of the polarizing effects by jointly working in community service and periodic holiday outings into strong sunlight.
The main indicator of success and indeed of the personality of the intimate partner (sexually intimate or financially intimate as a business partner) will be the disposition of Ravi in the radix and any graha in bhava-7.
All intimate partnerships are psychic mirrors. Not only sexual unions, but also business unions where two partners deeply share a vision, and resources. Certain parts of ourselves, such as compulsive behaviors and unrecognized beliefs, can only be seen in the mirror of the partner.
Kumbha tends to engage intensively with others who promote themselves as worldly, capable, confident, and possessed of considerable resource. The more Surya influences yuvati bhava (in D-1 or D-9) the more deceptive this exaggeration of personal power can get. If Surya is also rising and thus casting drishti upon kalatra bhava, the partner's bravado might range from dramatic bragging to outright criminal deception.
However normally there is simply an excess of dramatic energy in Kumbha's 7th Bhava, a locale which requires less ego and more concern with the interests of the other in order to be a happy place.
Partnerships are founded on shared ideals and a vision for the future, rather than measurable emotional harmony or joint family responsibilities. One embarks into the duties of marriage on a istinctively idealistic basis.
Thus, Kumbha's partners, unless they are super-intellectual visionaries and truly capable in the world, are likely bore the native - who rather quickly moves on.
Contracts, agreements, legal discussions, all types of advising are typically distasteful to Kumbha, who prefers to have the partner manage their worldly affairs. Divorce is common, because of Kumbha's rational response to conflict.
Spouse can be made into a workhorse, piled up with duties and schedules, treated as a fixture in public life, emotionally ignored. Intimacy problems. Does better with an older or more conservative spouse whose self-image is also invested in public role-playing.
~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 2 4 Shloka 12
"If the sign Leo or the Sun's Navamsha be descending,
the husband will be very mild and will do various works (some take it: - will indulge in much sexual union)."
|~~ BPHS Ch. 80, shloka 22-25||
"If at woman's birth, the 7th bhava or the setting Navamsha be that of Simha,
her husband will be exceedingly soft in his disposition and will be very hard working."
Joint assets of marriage are modest, depending always on fluctuations of Mercury. The spouse may be helpful in promoting public identity (8th Bhava is 11th-from-10th, spouse's contribution to joint assets is normally gainful for career.)
Whatever wealth Kumbha may possess comes from mental, verbal work such as counting, thinking, writing, selling etc. The spouse is normally from a family of equal social standing to the native, relative to their birth cultures.
Normally it is easy for Ghata-lagna to access deep healing modalities such as psychotherapy, therapeutic massage, and other regenerative modes. Kumbha folk latch onto therapeutic concepts quickly, and immerse themselves into the narrative of healing without resistance.
The inspiration and consolation of Religion is easily accessible to Hridroga-lagna. However as always if Shukra is compromised, there may be less happiness in the dharma.
An easy faith arises in their lives, due partly to their love of religious art forms and intellectual attachment to the concept of harmony. They enjoy the company of religious teachers and appreciate the fellowship of their sangha. A feminine quality is present in their teachers and religious traditions, often centered on a female deity - or, more abstractly, on the intentional balance of yin and yang energies.
The father's character depends on Shukra's condition, as well as whatever is happening in 9th-from-Moon. However in general, the father and guru live balanced lives. Some tendency for father and guru to have multiple marriages and families - sometimes simultaneously - esp. when Shukra occupies a dry, impersonal sign like Kumbha, Kanya, or Makara.
Kumbha Leads and Governs: knowledge-collection and wealth-banking (Vrishabha)
Kumbha * leaders (10th-from) of knowledge-collection and wealth-banking (Vrishabha)
Kumbha folk are characteristically very alert to the role and importance of capital wealth-hoard in the society. Although their style = distributive and due to Rahu's involvement also taboo-breaking, so that Kumbha-haru cannot continue the lineage-channeled wealth accumulations of Vrishabha, Kumbha is a VERY materialistic rashi that is committed to alteration, expansion, and adaptation of the The capital wealth-collection systems, not destruction of them.
With Kuja as the 10th lord, Hridroga-lagna has plenty of energy to invest in career development. Not only is the ego (L-7 Surya) generally wanting to promote the concepts of balance and partnership in society, but also their deep need to express themselves through grand social visions, motivates Kumbha lagna to put much energy into doing something on the world stage.
As always, for their world vision to manifest, Kuja must be in a good Bhava and sign. Hridroga has plenty of physical energy for public works, but the gap between conception and execution may be caused by investing too much of their life force in the partner's view. Tempting as it always is to promote their partner's cause (i.e., to hide their ego behind the image of their partner), Kumbha lagna should acknowledge their own ego and their own ideas. Brainstorming their ideas with groups of multi-talented friends, they can capture the prey of worldly success in a team effort with those who share their universal healing vision.
Guru rules Kumbha-lagna's 11th Bhava of friendships and marketplace associations. Hridroga folk truly enjoy socializing. They have expansive networks of family and friends.
Because Guru rules bhava-11 of income and also bhava-2 of stored wealth (savings, hoards, historical records, food pantries, etc.) - Guru's conditionwill accurately predict their wealth accumulation levels.
Guru's natural compassion and open-mindedness brings Kumbha-lagna into the company of humanistic, optimistic, good-humored folk. Unless Guru is fallen in Makara (which cramps optimism) they enjoy great abundance of friendship, they are rarely short of money, and periods of Guru can bring considerable wealth.
For Kumbha lagna, presuming that Guru is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-11 Guru generate considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via earned income from the marketplace of goods and services.
|Friendship Networks||Guru as L-11 favors friendships with
teachers, both secular and religious. Happily, the native counts
many religious persons, philosophers and priests within one'
Most likely friends are teachers and the philosophically inclined.
if L-6 in 11:
Presence of L-6 Chandra in 11 can indicate one who becomes depressed and frustrated with the emotional behaviors of of unfaithful friends.
Kumbha * disconnected (12th-from) spiritual guidance and reflective intuition;
The meditation and inner sanctuary Bhava is somewhat repressed by Shani's relentless demand for duty and responsibility. Unless Shani occupies vyaya bhava or there is some favorable setup, Kumbha folk may never relax enough to meditate or pray.
Vyaya bhava is also the Bhava of bed pleasures and other private imaginative enclosures. Their bed pleasures and holiday getaways might become overly routinized, expressing their sense of order, efficiency, economy, and duty.
Body-calming, spa-type deep relaxation are generally too time-wasting. Rather, Kumbha-lagna prefer to relax in the dignity of well-earned sleep, after a productive day of socially approved labors.
Unless strong planets occupy vyayasthana, Kumbha-lagna resists foreign travel. Kumbha-lagna do not enjoy being away from familiar rules and customs. Should a Shani period enforce extended residence in a foreign land, Kumbha-lagna will endure the discomfort - particularly if such tenure promotes their career.
One exception to Kumbha-lagna's dislike is that they enjoy cultural and religious ceremonies. If you are hosting one of these folks, take them around to public events! Kumbha natives are happiest at work, surrounded by familiar imagery, living and thinking according to the Old Rules.
