bandesha-4 [Shani in Bhava-9]
bandesha-4 in Bhava 9= folk beliefs
kinder-kuche-kirke roots emerge via father - doctrine - divinity - human discourse regarding the paradigm of belief (9)
Generally some conflict (6/8) between the localized view (4) and high theoretical wisdom (9) unless other graha accompany the bandesha-4 within dharmasthāna. Tendency for bandesha-4 to transfer the folk beliefs of 4 into the university theories of 9.
One may have a particular genius for carrying the property-ownership matters of 4 such as housing, land use, water use, deeds of title, environmental site-management etc. into the theoretical, principled discussions of the temple-9.
Should the graha which is rules bhava-4 be socially dignified, one may demonstrate expertise in legal theory of property, philosophy of environmental law, development of constitutional principles of education, and similar bandhu-bhava-4 local input producing dharmabhava-9 global output.
Always problematic 6-8 angle, even when the exponent is socially successful
The awkward ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle between 4 and 9 brings out the genius of 4-9 only in conflicted settings, when the old local cult or the old property rights or the old local schooling (4) are in conflict with some type of globalizing influence (9).
Thus bandesha-4 in 9 = generally a good angle for professional who are trained to manage local-global conflicts that occur in the process of social-class change, such as attorneys and religious counselors.
Home-ownership, cultural boundaries, Parenting and Schoolteaching (4) are prone to conflict due to the draw of higher knowledge (9) but ultimately the results are favorable.
Faith of our Fathers
Even when bandesha-4 remains steadfastly parochial in its outlook, one may become a familiar representative of the fundamental and customary faith of an ethnic people.
Articulator preserver or exponent of folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, rhythms, roots, routines
Customary, routine-seeking bandesha-4 occupies adversarial 6th-from-svakshetra. Foundational schooling (4) and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms can pervade higher discourse of philosophical principles (9) placing habitual folk beliefs of a settled people (4) in conflict with authentic philosophical or theological discussions (9).
Parochialism, fundamentalism, folk heritage tend to enter the philosophical apprehension of higher dharma
Nature, environment, roots, Homeland rhythms (4)
= expressed in Philosophical or sacred teaching (9)
A gifted preacher who can transmit high ritual while maintaining an emotional interest in the emotional well being of the audience.
Patriotism and ethnic roots expressed via the inspirational pulpit.
A seeker of religious and philosophical truth, but rarely at rest in a single set of beliefs.
Routine transportation (Commute)
Troubles in the home (6th-from-4th) -- yet often, help from high-priests or philosophers
bandesha-4 in 6th-from-svakshetra indicates a next-step development of principled understanding which is motivated by conflict (6) with the ritual routines and rhythms of one's birth-culture. May quarrel with customary acts of piety, rhythmic folkways, ancient patterns, and established cultural norms or explore alternative doctrinal paradigms in a somewhat adversarial quest for higher meaning.
Tendency to need to break free of the roots culture in pursuit of the next step in one's development, and that next step is often a new paradigm of belief that is not well matched to the parents' cultural grounding.
Mother's cultural roots are deep in a solid moral philosophy. Mother's lineage may include priests or guru-type religious teachers, who have strong opinions on moral and aesthetic matters. However, one will not be satisfied with that into which one was born.
One may become a professor or scholar-administrator with explicit critical consciousness of which educational values are being transmitted to the student generation, and why. May be acutely aware of the conflict between society's need for stability via cultural indoctrination, vs. The need of the higher mind to seek a non-traditional path.
Must have religious doctrine, sacred teachings, or life-philosophy in order to feel protected and secure. However, Most varieties of dogma are in conflict with the cultural roots and owned lands, due to bandhesha in unbalanced 6th-from-4th
Religious (9) properties (4), although these are disputed, conflicted, and problematic due to the 6th-from angle
Is likely to be a well-educated person with solid grounding in his own cultural foundations, yet perhaps tending a bit toward unbalanced judgments or indebtedness in his handling of property matters. At least he may be not much in agreement with the prevailing pedagogy of the day - due to bandesha-4 in argumentative 6/8-from-4th .
Father may be an educator, grantor of titles of licenses, vehicles manager, or property manager.

bandesha-4 [Guru in bhava-11]
bandesha-4 in Bhava 11
bandesha-4 = folkways, patriotism, parents especially Mother
bhava-11 = marketplace gains, material goals and achievements; social participation movements and economic participation
economic income (11) sourced from matters of bhava-4 including vehicles of transportation, shelters, roots, things underground, real-estate, agricultural lands, fishing, marine lifestyles, homewares, nourishment, schooling, and local rhythms
With bandhesha in 8th-from-svakshetra, one may be more comfortable in a next-step country than in one's own homeland. Depending on the graha in 4 and in 11, one may be a traveler who frequently moves away from the home base.
There may be a forced transformative even disastrous rift between customs of the childhood home and the rhythms of folk life, as the foundations of life demand movement into the rebirthed identity of a shift in patriotic allegiance, or homeland passport, or loyalty to the mother-motherland and her people (mother may include both parents as a protective unit). One tends to rift-and-shift away from the birth roots in a bid to be rejuvenated and reborn.
bandesha-4 in 8th-from-svakshetra = less benevolent for mother's well-being, but gives inheritance of landed property rights and hidden assets.
Mother is somewhat instable because she is prone to quick cycles of identity transformation; however, she is gainful and her child benefits from mother's social connectivity.
Mother: gainful remarriage and new identity
bandesha-4 in 8th-from-svakshetra is only slightly auspicious for matters of schooling, vehicles, or property ownership-stewardship
All these undertakings will be profitable, but one may feel that one does not have much control over the trajectory from one's foundations (such as the college major field) into the actual method of earnings. Parents will provide a legacy of some variety.
Bandesha in 8th-from-4 = 6/8 unsettled tension re: schools, transportation
Pne is essentially a teacher (4) who promotes a particular learning pathway or science via large assemblies (11).
One is generally able to be financially gainful (11) while doing so in fact educating others can be a main source of income. (Other income is often from other items within the portfolio of bandhu bhava-4 such as rents upon landed properties and buildings.)
Auspicious for business in sale of instructional materials or turn-key educational systems. Any relationship between 4 and 11 shows profit from educational activities.
Education industry is a majority employer in USA. www.bls.gov
Direct and indirect profits from the schools and diploma-holders
The people and place where one had received one's upbringing, manners, and schooling form a strong constituency within the social network and provide a basis for gainfulness.
Even coming from humble beginnings, one may attend a prestigious academy, college or professional school which forms the springboard of "who you know" .
Gains from one's formal education and teaching dharma in the marketplace. May be a business educator; a scientist; or an educator in the fields of technical, social or professional networking.
Gainful capabilities, esp. income from educational products, land/property products or transactions. Promotes a patriotic, conservative persona but may be more of a freethinker than s/he reveals.
Profit from the home culture, roots, foundations, old ways, ancient boundaries, places of settlement, ethnicity, schooling (4) * but because 11 occupies 8th-from-4th, there must be some sudden force of unexpected change which also invigorates a new identity
May handle innovative products or digital technology which transform conventional primary educational settings.
one profits from stimulating professional networking, and providing other connectivity functions which expand the scope of basic socialization. (4th lord in transformative/destructive 8th-from-svakshetra, profits from changing its base).

bandesha-4 in distant realms Bhava 12=
dreams / meditation / sanctuary /subconscious / private worlds
bandesha-4 in 9th-from-svakshetra = auspicious.
confessional topics bring spiritual healing and wisdom.
bandesha-4 in 12 may own land (4) in a distant country or a country far away from one's homeland (12) if the graha is strong.
Otherwise, deepest connections to land and the traditions of the mother's family are plunged into the realm of the subconscious imagination.
The home customs, routine and regular habits of a people, roots and rhythms, may be trapped in a world of ignorance or or dreamy uncertainty; the basis of life shifts as if in a dream.
Home (4) tends to be influenced by the imagination (12) May possibly have a crumbling or insubstantial quality if Ketu-12.
Foreign guests from distant lands come visiting in the home
May teach in an enclosure such as an ashram, monastery, hospital, prison, or spa. Little social recognition for teaching, parenting, or caretaking behaviors.
Limited identity as a parent or custodian; yet one loves the land patriotically because bandesha-4 has found the 9th from svabhava in a moksha trine of sincere understanding. Works quietly on matters of environmental preservation and care.
May be a traveling educator, teach to the international tourist industry, or be a chaplain in hospital or retreat/reserve camp.
Although the 9th angle indicates spiritual balance, one or both of the parents may be unavailable due to distance, isolation, hospitalization, meditative retreat, or imprisonment.
Depending on graha yuti the bandesha there may be house-shifts driven by the imaginative need to relocate, but these new shelters are likely all fairly close to the homeland roots.
Mother may have been unavailable in the home due to illness perhaps, or an outside social life, or mother was an exceptionally quiet person with little outer life.
Alternatively, the foundational education (4) may be established in boarding schools; one may live in a dormitory (12) rather than live at home
Self or mother may have been primarily educated in a protected enclosure such as a boarding school or refugee camp. Quality of the education is high or low depending on the graha.
Must have quiet and solitude, often the sanctuary of private prayer, in order to feel protected and secure.
May signal the dissolution or loss of a foundational, protective structure such as a home or a school.
Generally signifies that the relationship with the mother's folk and their properties, while often helpful due to the trine angle, is invisible and dissolved.
Yet with bandesha-4 in 12, the walls of enclosure both psychic and physical which create a feeling of protection and shelter may dissolve or be eroded by the intensity of one's dreams.
There may be goings-on within the home (4) that are not clearly seen (12) due to the curtained, invisible, enclosed nature of 12. Character of the bandupathi may reveal.
|STAY ON THE BRINK
QUOTATION from Pema Chödrön, Buddha's Daughters, pages 56–57
"When things fall apart and we're on the verge of we know not what, the test for each of us is to stay on that brink and not concretize.
The spiritual journey is not about heaven and finally getting to a place that's really swell. In fact, that way of looking at things is what keeps us miserable.
Thinking that we can find some lasting pleasure and avoid pain is what in Buddhism is called samsara, a hopeless cycle that goes round and round endlessly and causes us to suffer greatly.
The very first noble truth of the Buddha points out that suffering is inevitable for human beings as long as we believe that things last—that they don't disintegrate, that they can be counted on to satisfy our hunger for security.
From this point of view, the only time we ever know what's really going on is when the rug's been pulled out and we can't find anywhere to land .
We use these situations either to wake ourselves up or to put ourselves to sleep.
Right now—in the very instant of groundlessness is the seed of taking care of those who need our care and of discovering our goodness."
Tenzing Gyatso, The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace: The Essential Life and Teachings
"...I try to stay joyful.
If we want to work effectively for freedom and justice, it is better to do so without anger or deviousness.
If we ourselves feel calm, and if we act with a sincere motivation, we can accomplish many things in the 30 or 50 active years of our life.
And if some positive results have already been seen from this approach, I think I can say that this is in part because of my commitment to the pacifist cause, a commitment which is motivated by a genuine belief in the brotherhood of mankind.
We are not a very large or powerful nation , but our way of life, our culture, and our spiritual tradition have helped us follow the way of peace even at times of tremendous difficulty and hardship, and have given us courage in our wish to develop love and compassion.
When the time comes, the Tibetan people longs with all its heart to take responsibility for the high plateau, which is our homeland , and to transform it into a sanctuary of peace where mankind will live side by side with nature, in harmony."
You said during the reading that I had the potential to
change countries numerous times. You said that is because the ruler of the
bhave for homes is in the bhave that is 8th from home-base. I have Ketua in
bhavae-4 and ny Chandra is in Chumbha rasashi You said I am restlessly
looking for higher income.
Hmm, that is very true.
I moved from
Malaysia to Brunei, and fro Brunei to Taipei, and from Taipei to Paris
France, and from Paris to the Rotterdam. I am in the Netherlands now and
working with my shipping company. My lifemate (like you say) is boring here
in the Rotterdam and we have been talking very much about it it time to go
to a new place.
We have two beautiful small kids and their education is very
important for us. My company has many offices in the world.
my question what I don't understand (yet). According to Jyotis, My dear
lifepartner has a plan, and my two kids also have their own plan. So what
happens if their plan says don't move but my plan would like to move to new
country? All members of family have to move together and all plans will
I moved from Malaysia to Brunei, and fro Brunei to Taipei, and from Taipei to Paris France, and from Paris to the Rotterdam. I am in the Netherlands now and working with my shipping company. My lifemate (like you say) is boring here in the Rotterdam and we have been talking very much about it it time to go to a new place. We have two beautiful small kids and their education is very important for us. My company has many offices in the world.
This is my question what I don't understand (yet). According to Jyotis, My dear lifepartner has a plan, and my two kids also have their own plan. So what happens if their plan says don't move but my plan would like to move to new country? All members of family have to move together and all plans will coordinate.
Regarding the next country-move, your Jyotishavidya nativity
may show a shift of household to a new country regardless of anyone else's move.
Usually if the whole family together is going to shift to a new land, the Jyotisha nativities of all the family members would show coordinated patterns (periods of ruler of 8th-from-4th, ruler of the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra , ruler of 12th-from-4th, ruler of 12th-from-chandra, periods of Ketu, periods of graha which are related to the typical rulers) .
However, That primary determiner of your move is your own VImshottari Dasha period timetable. If you do a country move, it was pre-planned eons ago and it is necessary for your spiritual development.
The nativities of your near and dear ones may be aligned or the might not be aligned with your country move. If that coordination does not occur, it suggests that you would move only with those who were planned to go with you. Common examples of a family not moving all together would include situations where children remain in one country for schooling while their parents (or both parents) travel for work, or children go to a different country to live with relatives, or other arrangements that are sage and beneficial for everyone but nevertheless do involve splitting the family locations.
With Jyotisha divinatory reasoning, it is necessary to set aside materialistic, positivistic, social propaganda about cause-and-effect relationships.
The causation mechanism in Jyotisha begins with spiritual programming, percolates down to mental level of thoughts. From causative thoughts, it gravitates down to emotions, and from emotions the urgos (energy) finally down to the social-physical level. Material circumstances never cause anything. Material circumstances are only a temporary result of their antecedent thoughts and feelings.
Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life's endeavors,
