Summary of Nine Graha Rulerships
measured from lagna * ligne * line of
Meena * Matsya * Prithuroman * Fish * Piscus
with remedial ratna recommendation
Surya = L-6 = "The Problematizer"
Great pride in one's problematizing skills; ability to deal with chronic conflict; master-slave relationships; animals; ministries of service.
From Meena lagna, Ravi controls the most evil dushthamsha, bhava-6.
Naturally, most of the significations of Ravi - esp father and father-figures - become problematic for Meena natives during their lives.
L-6 Surya = karaka for independent self, soul (the channel of divine intelligence), father, pride, creativity, and Light.
In general, Meena lagna natives must be inordinately cautious of their own independent, egoistic instincts, since self-assertion tends quickly toward conflict .
A cosmic, compassionate (Guru) merging and divinely tolerant worldview, along with focused attention to the clairsentient pathways and their subtle but eternal signal that provide accurate spiritual guidance, will help to prevent outbursts of moral indignation.
Father * Surya = pitri-karaka
Father is related to matters of bhava-6 including physical medicine, military service, social work, and countless ministries of service to the poor, the victims, the betrayed, the accused, the toxic, the polluted, the exploited, the addicted, and the enslaved. If the ministry to others has not yet developed, the father may be distinguished by a chronic illness, criminal involvement, or financial insufficiency which leads him into unbalanced or unfair situations.
The father's pride
Father as exploiter, abuser, or criminal
The Meena woman
Because Surya is a karaka for career and public recognition, and Ravi = L-6 for Meena lagna, the Meena native is somewhat disposed toward to accept public roles and professional leadership responsibilities within human service ministries (6) such as clinical health care, management of jails and police stations, military and police professions, ministries of service to the exploited classes. Practice of medicine and medical education are particularly fortunate vocations for the Meena native.
Ravi is an especially difficult graha for Meena nativities in which Surya = L-6 from both radix lagna (material animosity) and Chandra lagna (emotional imbalance):

"For the Pisces (Meena) Ascendant
This will prove useful as Sun is a friend of Jupiter the lord of the Pisces Ascendant.
Chandra = L-5
For Matsya lagna, the fluctuating and impressionable Chandra rules Karkata sthana-5.
Chandra occupies a natural bhava of Surya, which brings more heat, brilliance, self-centeredness, and personal glamour into Chandra's naturally habitual, rhythmic sheltering and protective behaviors.
Chandra in a 5/9 angle to His own house becomes a strongly beneficial influence in the nativity.
Meena lagna has a psycho-emotional need to obtain security and protection via emotional engagement with
Chandra =L-5 = emotionally most satisfied in creative social roles that express individual intelligence and self-determination, and allow the native to take speculative risks.
Chandra's radix and navamsha rashi and any drishti to Chandra will show the native 's specific style of pursuing security and emotional fulfillment.
Typically Meena natives love children , and expect to profit by raising them. Whether they choose reproductive fertility or not depends on conditions of dharma bhava and putra bhava. They are prone toward lifelong self-improvement and often involved in the consciousness industry. Will generally achieve some degree of celebrity (or notoriety!).
When the highly fluctuating and impressionable Chandra controls the domain of children and speculation, much depends on Chandra's lord and companions. Emotional feeling and empathy for children is strong, but unfocused.
If L-4 Budha is organized, the native can stabilize the home routines. Otherwise the emphasis on creativity, content over form, can be under-structured. Children are creative and intuitive and probably moody, having bee emotionally indulged.

"For the Pisces Ascendant,
Moon rules the 5th house, a very auspicious house.
If Moon is afflicted or ill-disposed, wearing of Pearl is a 'must."
Vital and competitive L-2+L-9 Kuja is a money-maker, as He controls two important wealth/values houses. (Wealth houses are 2, 5, 9, and 11.)
For Matsya Lagna, presuming that Mangala is fairly well disposed, periods of L-2+L-9 Mangala generate considerable wealth via family-of-origin hoarded assets and knowledge-values, as well as via the higher philosophical education and world travel.
Mangala brings a knowledgeable but often adversarial family culture. the native is raised with religious people who are also competitive, inventive (Mesha) and wealthy. Given the influence of L-9, Kuja's wealth in a Meena nativity is most likely to occur in the form of temple knowledge (humanistic philosophy and ceremonial skills) rather than money or material storage value per se, yet there is undoubtedly some level of financial wealth present in the lineage. (The amount depends on occupants of bhava-2).
Family-lineage values are instilled within a culture of competitive ambition. (The degree and direction of ambition depends on Kuja's rashi and drishti to Mangala.) Religion and philosophical wisdom are also infused with a drive toward psychological inquiry (Vrischika) that pushes the native toward an individual (Kuja) truth.
The the core values (2) set toward a dislike of convention and herd behaviors (Kuja), the Meena natives tends away from group rituals, and toward more personalized religious knowledge (9).
Check Kuja, Shani, and Chandra for total wealth picture. Guru and Surya will provide more information on priestly duties and ethical comprehension.

"For the Pisces Ascendant
Mars rules the 2nd, the house of financial wealth and 9th the house of Bhagya (fortune).
Kendra lord L-4+L-7 Budha is a stabilizing influence on the social personality. For Matsya folk, Budha controls two of the most basic social relationships: parents (4) and spouse (7).
Meena people talk (or sing or write) almost continuously at home, with their parents, and with their partners. Conversational and sexual, Budha likes to form narrative-driven relationships of shared stories and explanations. The parents are typically articulate and talkative.
Because Budha (like Chandra) is exceptionally impressionable, much depends on Budha's lord in radix and navamsha.
For example, Matsya native with
The Meena native will enjoy many highly communicative relationships, both personal and professional (professional advising = 7th = 10th-from-10th). If Budha is well disposed, the native is a natural counselor and adviser, in any setting.
The spouse (7) tends to be articulate and gestural, with a gift for friendly chat. (The spouse's specific style of speech articulation, quality of voice, face and hair etc. are best measured via 2nd-from-7th and 8th-from Chandra.)
L-4+L-7 Budha is a powerful Schooling agent. Budha periods often foster an interest in educational undertakings, and often mark a significant educational accomplishment such as passing an important examination, or earning a diploma.
Budha periods may manifest accomplishment in communication and argumentation. E.g., mastering a new business communications medium such as marketing, sales, or advertising (Budha); conducting an important meeting; venturing into a contract negotiation (7) or legal agreement (7).
(Good results presume that Budha is healthy and no resistance in bhava-4 or bhava-7).
|Badhaka-sthana = "harming" houses|| For the Meena nativity, L-7 Budha = badhesha |
Budha finds His nichha-amza debilitation in Meena rashi
Budha suffers kendra-adhipati -dosha relative to the Meena lagna
Avoid emeralds unless there is an exceptionally clear argument (Budha) for wearing the clear green panna.
For example there could be a case of Budha in Meena lagna for a realty attorney who could utilize the unique benefits of L-4/L-7 in lagna.
Also I once saw the nativity of a special-education teacher who made splendid use of Budha L-4/L-7 in lagna to serve severely verbally disabled students by teaching them to draw semiotically interpretable pictures. She was a genius anyway and emerald in her case during her Budha mahadasha brought out her articulatory, explanatory genius even more.
So, there are important exceptions. But in general, Budha is problematic for Meena lagna and should be avoided.
Emerald (panna) for Meena lagna
"Mercury rules the 4th and 7th houses.
Here also on account of ownership of two Kendras Mercury suffers from Kendra-adhipati dosha.
If they take the risk of doing so they must wear a Blue Sapphire along with Emerald."
Wise and expansive L-1+L-10 Guru is a superb career graha. (Guru for Meena = similar to the role Budha plays for Kanya lagna.
The Meena native benefits from a generous and expansive approach to leadership responsibilities. In general, presuming that Guru is a healthy graha, the native enjoys fairly high levels of social recognition and a favorable public reputation. the native is known as a teacher and in some sense as a priestOne's inclusive social viewpoint encourages public trust.
Much depends on the dignity of Guru and the timing of Guru Mahadasha. Yet, a benefic controlling two key kendras cannot easily go wrong. Guru periods however difficult for other matters (if perhaps Guru rules unfortunate houses from other lagnas) is always helpful for career.
Guru is specifically not helpful for money, because L-10 = L-12th-from-11th AND L-1 = L-12th-from- 2nd. Guru periods typically raise the prestige and lower the bank accounts.
In a female nativity, Guru = significator of the first husband
Meena lagna or Meena-Chandra indicates characteristics of 1 and 10 in the first husband.
This agent tends to have qualities of generosity and inclusiveness; well-developed social identity (1) an engaging personal appearance (2) and high vitality; also a prominent social position (10) with expanded reputation and capability to accept social leadership roles (10).
yellow sapphire = pushkaraka-raja-ratna = "pukhraj" for Meena lagna.
"For the Pisces Ascendant Jupiter will be lord of the Ascendant and the 10th house.
He is, therefore, an auspicious planet for this Ascendant.
Wearing of a Yellow Sapphire with Red Coral, the gem stone of Mars, the lord of the 9th (house of Bhagya), will be an ideal combination for achieving success. "
Shukra indicates possessiveness, acquisitive tendencies, sensual pleasures, satisfaction, treasures-and-pleasures, luxuries (Laxmi) and all types of sweets.
as ruler of 3 and 8 for Meena lagna, Shukra is especially possessive of one's topical "message" and the mental signaling narrative (3) and the secret assets of partnership, confidential information, occult knowledge, and other hidden mysteries (8).
The Meena native finds the content of 3 (narratives, stories, lore) and 8 (occult knowledge, hidden truths) "worth collecting" and will dedicate a lifetime to acquisition and storage of these values.
L-8+L-3 Shukra = less benevolent for the Meena lagna. Harmonious relationships are hard to come by.
Shukra = particularly unfavorable for men, because Shukra describes their female partners.
As the ruler of an upachaya house and a dushthamsha, sweet and sensual L-3+L-8 Shukra is not such a beneficial graha for Matsya lagna.
In fact, Shukra is nearly as problematic for Meena lagna as is Mangala for Kanya lagna. The difference is: that Mangala for Kanya is focused and direct like the huntsman when in sexual overdrive, and thus the Kanya native can get into trouble through Mangala's instinctive pursuit of its quarry.
For the Meena native, Shukra playing the same role as L-3+L-8 produces a receptive rather than pro-active behavior in the mating dance, and as a natural benefic Shukra tends to leave all involved with a sweet taste, after the sexual partnering is completed.
Nevertheless Shukra's involvement with both deep secrecy (8) and superficial daily mentality (3) gives Meena natives a peculiar affection for secret relationships that happen in the context of quite mundane team work. The environment for such liaisons is often the administrative work of commercial business, and in particular in the context of committees, meetings, 'media' production, and publication of announcements.
In the modern world, Shukra for Meena lagna becomes a karaka for the luxury of the "office marriage"wherein the native spends a good deal of time happily paired with a team-mate. The 'office marriage' is typically a luxurious ornament to one's life and it does not threaten meaningful relations with one's own spouse (7). However like all sources of pleasure it is very easy to become attached to the experience : )
The pleasure-ruled work-team relationships do not always become sexual under Shukra's lordship (as they nearly always do for Kanya under lordship of fleshly Kuja). However if L-7 Budha is weak and L-3+L-8 Shukra is strong, Meena's affections may over time come to lie more strongly with the more harmonious partnerships established with an office mate, fellow salesperson, member of the media production team, etc.
The main indicator of difficulty maritally the standard problem for the Meena Male, which is that Shukra is an unfortunate ruler of 3-8 .
This situation makes Meena marriages rather permanently troublesome on the interior, although if Shukra is nicely placed by Rashi the mate could be a tremendous asset socially on the exterior of life.
Commercial relationships (3) are naturally focused on wealth-development (bhava-3 = 2nd-from-2nd). During Shukra periods, Meena knows that folks who share one's wealth hunger (Shukra) can become intensely bonded via the conversations and planning for accumulations of financial wealth .
In a male nativity, Shukra as L-8 indicates complexity of fortune from the wife. She can be very wealthy esp. from inheritance (8) or from her own entrepreneurial business (3). If Shukra's connections to bhava-8 are strong, wife may be a surgeon, psychiatrist, detective, or private banker; inter alia. Nevertheless she will have an aesthetic inclination toward conducting other partnerships outside marriage. These hidden partnerships are typically not sexually passionate, but they are important to the woman's well-being because they involve wealth, beauty, and perhaps other sensual pleasures.
Sensual pleasures tend to involve the native in hidden activities. The Meena native loves secrets, including confidential information, hidden money, and magical or tantric initiation. In relationships with females, great intrigue and intense conversation.
Meena natives have throughout the lifetime, a tendency to benefit from the financial contributions of the spouse (8). In a rashi of Budha, may enjoy esoteric thinking. In a rashi of Chandra (esp in Azlesa), loves meeting the secret emotional needs of others.
as ruler of bhava-3, Shukra feels pleasure from indulgence in the personal narrative, and from conversations both internal and external. Pleasure from business administration, organizing information (3), short term travel (3), and mentalistic pursuits. Wealth from self-owned business (3, 2nd-from-2nd) is favored when the native serves the interests of women and those who love them. A business managing secrets would be especially successful if Shukra is strong.
Periods of Shukra for Meena lagna natives will produce success in self-owned business (3), particularly when the focus of the self-owned business is related to the feminine aesthetic (attractive clothing, lovely ornaments, and luxuries). In addition, Shukra periods will produce some intrigue related to bhava-8, monies of the spouse being hidden, or very complex insurance dealings. If Shukra is strong enough to initiate a divorce, it will be amicable.
For both male and female nativities, if Shukra periods cause upheaval, it is worth waiting patiently for a harmonious resolution, knowing that Shukra will re-balance the upset toward the end of the period.
In contrast to Kanya lagna, for which the natural malefic L-3+L-8 Mangala will cause serious trouble during His periods, the Meena lagna native need not worry much about the outcome of L-3+L-8 periods of Shukra. As a natural benefic, Shukra tends to produce wealth, pleasure, and harmony whatever the circumstances.
| Remedial Ratna for Shukra: |
Flawless Diamond = hira
for Meena Lagna
"For the Pisces Ascendant, Venus will be lord of the 3rd and 8th, two inauspicious houses.
Pragmatic and conventional L-11+L-12 Shani gives profit and takes it away.
Periods of Shani build income, earn goals, and reward achievement. The same periods create loneliness, isolation, and a profound loss of identity. It is the great irony of the turning of the cycle of birth and death, that at the moment of accomplishment of a goal, the karma is completed, and one tends to lose interest in the activity. Enthusiasm withers, and the once-sought-after goal recedes into the past.
In any case, Shani periods are distinguished by hard work which is profitable, and sober realism which reminds the native that no matter how glorious the accomplishment or how great the earnings - one can't take it with one, after all..
In a female nativity, Shani = significator of the second husband
Meena lagna or Meena-Chandra indicates characteristics of 11 and 12 in the second husband. This agent tends to have qualities of maturity and personal discipline; gainfulness, demonstrated ability to set and achieve goals (although with difficulties, setbacks, delays, and austerities) (11); also qualities of reflective or evasive imagination, karmic relationship to foreign lands (12), potentially a sober and profound meditation practice.
Dr. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, New Delhi. p. 117
Still, if Saturn is in his own sign in the 11th or in the Ascendant, Blue Sapphire can be used with advantage in the major period of Saturn. ..."
Rahu = co-lord of dushthamsha bhava-12 Kumbha. In general Rahu-ratna (gomedha) is to be avoided as an amplifier of the negative attributes of personality which can cause withdrawal and isolation from the vitality of life.
However for specific purposes such as taking extended religious retreat, establishment of meditation practice, long foreign assignment or extended pilgrimage, laboratory or library-based sanctuary research, and other long periods of sequestered reflective thought, a Gomedha might possibly be supportive.
Rahu in either rashi of marakaMangala= dangerous for Meena lagna. Even for the privacy-and-prayer target, the Rahu-ratna should be considered only if the lord of bhava-12 and its occupants are highly benevolent
Rahu is co-lord of bhava-12 Kumbha, therefore Rahu-ratna (gomedha) is unlikely to be a beneficial gem *except* for matters of meditation and withdrawal into the hermit's cave of reflective awareness, and even then only if the lord of bhava-12 and its occupants are auspicious. Rahu's effects for
Ketu's effects for Meena lagna depend significantly on Ketu's bhava, rashi, and drishti. Ketu amplifies the effect of any graha who are sharing Ketu's house; and also Ketu magnifies the effects of the lord of His occupied Rashi.
Ketu is co-lord of bhava-9 Vrischika, therefore Ketu-ratna may be a beneficial gem for matters of acquisition of wisdom-teaching and priestly rituals -- if the lord of bhava-9 and its occupants are auspicious.
Even if auspicious, the nature of the wisdom-preaching shall certainly get "Ketu-ized" showing an emphasis upon withdrawal from the ceremonial displays of public religion and toward the deepest personal detachment leading to complete surrender.
