From the Mesha lagna, both the natural animosity between Surya and Shukra and the fact that Shukra bhukti is the terminal sub-period of the Surya Mahadasha are significant amplifiers of Shukra's maraka empowerment.

However if Shukra is severely combust as it is for example in the the Mesha nativity of the famous "Gitanjali" polymath Rabindranath Thakur Tagore, then maraka Shukra will have no power and the native may live a very long life indeed.)
