A representative of unseen forces
The shape-shifting, perpetually recycling randhresha lives behind a mask.
Ruler of 8 in 1 means that the physical-body appearance is that mask.
The randhresha is responsible for refreshing the incarnation by initiating personality change without killing the materially densified body-shell.

Randhresha-8 located in the leadership angle 10th-from-8th may be remarkably effective for purpose of gaining respect and decision-making authority in career and professional hierarchies (depending upon the specific graha involved). However, one is most likely to serve a primarily an agent of unexpected change, threatening innovation, or representative of the constant movement of the cycle of birth and death, toward the hierarchy.

The lord of transformative self-destruction and rebirth has entered the house of creative intelligence, 10th-from-svakshetra.
Leadership becomes a performance art. Privileged, secret relationships with politicians, entertainers and speculators.
Lord of 4th-from-5th occupying bhava-5
The lord of Kuja's house gives rather peculiar circumstances in svabhava of Surya. Mangala and Ravi are friendly graha and the 4th-from angle is stable, educated, and secure.
However, the qualities of randhresha-8 are frightening to those who do not understand what is happening. Indeed the rejuvenating cycle of death and rebirth it is frightening to everyone, just slightly less so to those who are familiar with its purpose.
As a general rule, the randhresha causes sudden, forces changes wherever He goes. The eighth lord is only superficially destructive. What randhresha-8 is really doing is taking the essential energy from one physical container, and moving it into a new physical container . That is the essence of tantra.
The eighth lord carries behaviors of emergency , sudden movement, and"hidden forces Kuja is a hunter and He tracks the mysterious movements of the animals whose very bodies will be - if captured and killed - Transformed into food.
Animal killing and regeneration of human life through animal meat is a harsh reality, but the human species is largely chained to it. Even in vegetarian cultures the movement of life force through the plant kingdom is shocking and mysterious. Sometimes the food is there - sometimes it is not. Many secret signs and omens must be observed if the human wishes to have a steady rejuvenating supply of food.
Romantic overs are infused with the energy of secrecy and transformation. It may be necessary to keep the love affair hidden from view.
randhresha-8 can also destroy the possibility of love affairs entirely, choosing instead to transfer the vital energy of romance into some other container, such as service to a higher cause, or celibate religious prayer.
Strange transformative experiences related to children, politics, speculation, literary and performance arts. One tries the common path in these pursuits, yet is deflected against one's will on to another path.
Dangerous conditions of first birth to one, or secrecy surrounding the first child. Circumstances may require casting a shield of secrecy around the children (e.g. To prevent kidnapping of celebrity children.)
Often an early miscarriage before successful childbirth. (The cycle of birth and death must turn before the karma is cleared out.)
If randhresha-8 is particularly virulent, children may be denied due to circumstances beyond one 's control. If children are denied due to randhresha-8 in bhava-5 (and not some other Jyotisha reason) then one is likely to achieve great wealth as the life-force is re-directed toward bringing inheritances developments.
Dangerous conditions of first childbirth to one, or secrecy surrounding the first child. Circumstances may require casting a shield of secrecy around the children (e.g. To prevent kidnapping of celebrity children.)

Step-1 = pre-incarnationally planned inheritance of responsibility for acting upon the materials of 8 = occult phenomena, secretive behaviors, hidden monies, trauma, widowhood, shocking discoveries, or sudden change
Step-2 = handle these dangers in the container of 6 = litigation, accusations, war, divorce, medical treatment,
Life's most brutal shocks such as natural disasters and emergencies, sudden widowhood = weakened.
8th-from agency of eruption, emergence, disaster, upheaval, rebirth -- enters bhava-6
Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the mother's relatives, physicians, pharmacists, servants, accusers, complainers, polluters, the ill, the victimized and the exploited
randhresha-8 = 11th-from-svakshetra = profits from keeping secrets, handling disasters, or making a shocking discovery.
Debt (6) from spouse's wealth (8) or from secret sources (8). Karaka for financial loss due to spousal wealth (8) achieved via in divorce (6) payment from one .
These otherwise catastrophic upheavals being weakened will manifest only as petty disputes, divorce rather than spousal death, chronic illness rather than massive disruption such as intervention surgery or a sudden stroke.
The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = addictions, internal argument leading to social conflict, and patterns of inequity, disenfranchisement, ; imbalance, toxicity, or exploitation within relationships.
For the conscious native, inheritance of medical, military, or human service ministry identity.
Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to medicines and physicians, servants and animals, human service ministries, police and military, caused by the discovery of a secret.
A particularly challenging placement, randhresha in 6 = related to generational poverty , inherited medical imbalance which leads to alcoholism and drug addictions , as well as families historically involved in exploitation and crime .
If the lord is an otherwise good graha, one may elevate the purpose of the unsavory associations and develop a ministry of service to carriers of the victim-mind. One may be a skilled physician or social worker dealing with hidden (8) or socially denied patterns of inherited self-destruction.
One may also serve as a shockingly sudden transformative (8) agent in relation to the repeating miseries (6) of the underclass.
When Budha = randhresha-8 , one however otherwise successful in life may be prone to articulate but highly conflicted self-destructive inner argumentation which is essentially an inherited narrative, passed down the family line.
The lord of transformative self-destruction has entered the house of imbalance, conflict, enemies, debts, disease.11th-from-svakshetra, results which improve over time (upachaya angle).
comfortable results for secret sources of empowerment for marketplace revenues; transformative healing through large networks of friendly association; and mystical allure in in huge gatherings such as rally, music concert, fayre and mela.
A dusthamsha lord residing in a dusthamsha generally gives favorable outcome . There are both easy and difficult implications .
Debt is destroyed; randhresha-8 in bhava-6 builds wealth quickly, native is not constrained by debt, native is gainful. However illness is increased, due to some negative habit acquired in the attempt to manage life's stress-conflict overload.
Powerful healers and secret methods will restore one 's health. After much transformative struggle (wisdom-building) enemies are destroyed - but only after one realizes that the enemies are projections of unwanted aspects of his own self.
Overall prognosis is good, but the transformative processes at work are energy-consuming and complex.
randhresha-8 in bhava-6 or bhava-12 is considered to weaken the effect of randhresha-8 .
randhresha-8 in 6 = [Sarala Yoga] = a Viparita = no-parity, unequal, crooked = Raja Yoga that gives short-term opportunities for comfortable and pleasing results at the moment when others suffer bad circumstances. Often what is a terrible crisis for another becomes the key to one's own betterment.
If a malefic+ randhresha-8 in 11th-from-svakshetra can be quite gainful, with source of the gain being confidential or secret dealings in negative relationships and materials. May be a spectacular healer whose tantric knowledge confronts evil directly, and who gains thereby.
Behind-the-scenes manipulators of war. Confidential usurious mani-money-lending. Weapons dealers, prostitution rings, drug dealers, usurers. May be operating on an international scale, such as agents of large banks/rich countries who arrange impoverishing loans to poor countries. Realism and secret knowledge brings them success through negative dealings.
If benefic, victim of exhausting struggles resulting from Deep Denial. Undiagnosed disease and misplaced confidence. Financial illness, medical illness, social illness - all present in one's life, Yet, he rejects the reality of evil. Wants a miracle cure, but does not see his own negativity operating in the disease process.
Patient's denial prevents physicians from finding the cause of illness. Whatever value the spouse contributes to the joint assets of marriage is drained off in medical expenses, payments to charlatans, false advocates, physicians and others falsely claiming to have access to secret cures. Native suffers by denying the reality of his own internal imbalances which are manifesting through .
Material success due to intelligent ability to utilize the energy of conflict = [Sarala Yoga]
Positive opportunities for advancement in the fallout from the identity-destroying crisis instigated during the period of randhresha-8 . Indeed one's re-created life will .
Furthermore, when the shocking qualities of randhresha-8 are softened by entering the drawn-out, accusatory and litigious environment of disagreeable bhava-6, one can typically escape the catastrophic scale of changes associated with bhava-8. Instead, one may proceed to the next phase of identity development with relative ease, such as easy movement into a second marriage after widowhood, easy recovery from disasters, and easy healing after surgery. Sarala yoga does not eliminate the upheavals and rejuvenations of bhava-8 but rather it transforms those quick-change conditions into powerful vehicles for success.
For wives, Shukra is not the indicator of the husband's personality and material situation. Rather, Shukra indicates the social agreement of marriage and its material outcomes.
randhresha-8 in 6 does not destroy animosity in this lifetime.
Depending on the number and character of graha in bhava-6, one may remain an object of contempt by many. The more graha in bhava-6, the more agents who complain and criticize. If there are several graha in bhava-6, each will cause its own variety of illness, poverty, jealousy, and suspicion.

A challenging placement for marriage and for any type of contract negotiation. The partner may have hidden interests. Applies not exclusively to the marriage partner but broadly to all negotiations and bargaining partners.
randhresha-8 = Surya in bhava-7
Surya introduces elements of self--referential non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual entitlements, trusts and agreements. Typically, the creative, celebrity, regal, or political facade of negotiated unions is maintained. Yet, the corrosive effects of spouse's solipsistic secrecy may corrode from within. The partner is exceptionally independent-minded and may be accustomed to holding the center of attention without regard for one' well-being. The marriage may be primarily symbolic. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 = Chandra in bhava-7
Chandra introduces elements of emotionally habitual non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual bonding, trusts and agreements. Typically, the familiar-face, customary facade of negotiated unions is maintained but the corrosive effects of spouse's guilty, self-protective hiding may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 = Mangala in bhava-7
Mangala introduces elements of sexual, competitive non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual negotiations, trusts and agreements. Typically, the physically vigorous, forward-moving facade of the arrangement is maintained. Yet, the corrosive effects of spouse's hidden pursuits may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 [ Budha in bhava-7]
Budha introduces elements of commercial, conversational non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual negotiations, trusts and agreements. Typically, the communicative facade of the arrangement is maintained but the corrosive effects of spouse's hidden information or camouflaged couplings may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 [ Guru in bhava-7]
Brihaspati introduces elements of doctrinal, ideological, non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual negotiations, trusts, and agreements. Typically, the philosophical, faithful facade of the arrangement is maintained. Yet, the corrosive effects of spouse's hidden agenda or camouflaged actions may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 [ Shukra in bhava-7]
Shukra introduces elements of financial, arranging non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual negotiations, trusts and agreements. Typically, the diplomatic facade of the arrangement is maintained. Yet, the corrosive effects of spouse's hidden treasuries or secret attractions may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
randhresha-8 [ Shani in bhava-7]
Shani introduces elements of chronic, enduring non-disclosure into the realm of marriage, partnership, contractual obligations, trusts and agreements. Typically, the normal social facade of dignity is maintained. Yet, the corrosive effects of secrecy may corrode from within. Additional graha in bhava-7 may alter the outcome.
The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = yuvati-bhava-7 , hidden liaisons and camouflaged environments. One becomes a mystical figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity.
The physical conditions of sudden upwelling of unexpected energy may also enforce a powerful psychological thrust of internal identity change.
May be an expert in tax (8) law (7)
Taboo subjects revealed + their illusory dangers drained
Potential for a positive outcome with nodal intervention. Randresha in bhava-7 is generally uncomfortable regarding the ideal state of open trust and disclosure between marriage partners. Yet for other types of partnership (business, professional) it is possible for this yoga to produce an upside .
randhresha-8 in 12th-from-svakshetra = vitiation, causes loss-of physical vitality and personality integrity.
Reduces the public accountability of the marriage contract and alliances of all varieties (political, commercial) because one is engaged in a secretive and rapid cycle of self-destruction-and-rebirth.
When conditions in bhava-7 are comfortable for the randhresha, the self-destruction is followed by a rebirth which completes a cycle of self-transformation; marriage can survive this cycle with proper therapeutic support.
Marriage and contractual agreement (7) is transformed by secret knowledge (8) or self-destructive behaviors (8). When fortunate, self-destruction is followed by self-rebirthing. Typically too unstable for lasting marriage but marriage may become a container for tantric, transformative process.
Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in the definition of one's relationship to the spouse and alliance partners, caused by discovery of a secret.
Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-7
Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the mate, counselors, advisers, deal-makers, contractors, attorneys, bargainers, arbiters, mediators, middlemen, balancers, designers, arrangers
Ruler of 2nd-from-7 occupies 7
The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors =ability to build contracts and negotiate and agreements - even with highly unlikely or hostile partners.
The lord of transformative destruction has entered the house of balance, contracts, marriage alliance and agreements.
comfortable and pleasing results for secret sources of empowerment for private imaginings and fantasies; transformative healing through knowledge of one's immediate parallel life; and mystical allure in the bedroom arts.
Marriage relationship or other important social contracts and promises may become vitiated through forbidden or secret dealings. Mysterious, confidential, and potentially dangerous activities enter the realm of marriage.
randhresha in the yuvatibhava is nearly always a difficult situation, and if the graha that is randhresha-8 be also a non-partnering graha such as Surya or Mangala, the challenge increases. randhresha-8 = [Surya in bhava-7] self-dramatizing spouse, around whom others are expected to orbit. Pitrikaraka Surya indicates the father.
This creates difficulty for the spouse, who assumes partial responsibility for one's behavior by way of the marriage contract. It may be difficult for the spouse to understand and accept the randhresha-8 in 3's native 's secret commitments.
It is easier to not be legally married with this position. If one is married there may be high turnover.
The change forces at work are too strong to allow long-term stability of agreements.
Spouse may have secret, taboo dealings. Mate may have connections to hidden sources of funding such as anonymous donors to charities.
For the spousal character + randhresha-8 in 7 need not be a nefarious quality
Randhresha in 7 can indicate skillful management of confidences and that invaluable ability to keep a secret .
Assets expected from death or divorce from spouse, will remain with the spouse. Destruction of social balance, equity, franchise, harmony, agreement.
So long as there are no graha residing in randhrasthāna, randhresha-8 in 7 places randhresha-8 in 12th-from-8 thus debilitates randhresha-8 and thereby extends the longevity. The most extreme extension occurs with L- Shani-7.
bhratru-pati-3 in bhava-7 = cannot agree on any alliance or decision for a sustained period of time; sudden, disruptive changes in contracts and agreements causes the re-imaging and re-configuring of relationships.
Secret forces overwhelm existing alliances. The spouse is an agent of transformation, destruction, and rebirth.

Graha = born into randhrabhava becomes subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8).
Calm response to Emergency Conditions
Undisclosed assets may be discovered. When the randhresha is strong and comfortable in bhava-8, an inheritance may be expected.
If bhava-8 is free of the drishti of Shani, graha which are generally comfortable in the svabhava of Mangala are the friends and neutrals of Mangala
A pair of inheritance positive graha in 8 may particularly signal hidden endowments:
Budha is inimical toward Mangala; one may handle the hidden assets of others in a commercial capacity, but the outcome is not an inheritance per se. (it might However, be a robust business profit, depending on vriddhi-pati-11 ).
Neither Shani-8 nor Ketu-8 confer financial inheritance. Shani-8 confers a long life and much responsibility for hidden matters. Ketu-8 disperses material forms. In a spiritually sensitive nativity, Ketu-8 removes the barriers which normally block occult perception. Ketu-8 can confer a spiritual inheritance in the form of free access to occult knowledge (8).
The most influentially identity-transforming and trauma-healing environment = randhra-sthāna-8 , hidden liaisons and camouflaged surroundings. One becomes a mystical figure representing revolutionary change, secrets, upheaval, and regeneration of the identity.
The physical conditions of sudden upwelling of unexpected energy may also enforce a powerful psychological thrust of internal identity change.
The speed of change-of-form may feel terrifying.
Conditions of death (8) contribute a defining element to the life story of the father.
Matters of the bhava that are ruled by graha situated in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, re-cycling , identity-destroying and regenerating hidden life force.
Effects of any graha in fast-transforming bhava-8 can be frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, apocryphal, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing often with a sudden thrust of unexpected force.
Excellent placement for occult mysteries, discovery of hidden things, and revealing of secrets.
Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-8
Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional
drilling, living, invasive healing, surgery, psychotherapy
Eruptions find agency in the figure of the in-laws, secret liaisons of self or mate, healers, surgeons, occultists, mystics, detectives, disaster-responders, emergency workers, revolutionaries , secret operatives,
those who spin the wheel of birth and death.
Sudden, unexpected upheaval - often violently invasive - yet, each occasion provokes a new era of the identity.
Destruction and rebirth (8) from utilization or realization of secret knowledge, from discovery of hidden truth or hidden resources, from occult practices (8) or via self-destructive behaviors (8).
The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = Access to hidden and mysterious reservoirs of knowledge and magical practice, as well as the skills to conduct secret relationships.
Sudden, intensely transformative, and potentially catastrophic changes in matters of magic, tantra, emergencies, healing transformations, confidential information, surgery, joint assets of marriage, one's in-laws, and secret money, caused by discovery of a secret.
Empowered Randhrapati-8 may be an extraordinary healer who is able to consciously turn the rejuvenating cycle of death and rebirth, moving efficiently from form to form while maintaining a vital connection with one's own life force intelligence.
Lacking adequate understanding of evolutionary forces.
May find oneself suddenly widowed or unexpectedly divorced
suddenly at death's doorstep due to an eruption of sudden force provoking violently transformative events. Mystical magic, sudden change-of-form. Poof!
or have other rapid and unpredicted shocking changes o the physical and personality identity .
periods of randhresha-8 = Sudden transformation of identity (not death):
Just like that!
Dushthamsha lord residing in a dushthamsha generally gives good outcome. There are both easy and difficult implications.
The lord of transformative self-destruction = enters the circumstances of death and sudden, forced changes.
The end of life may be shockingly fast, with little or no warning . May come via accident or rapid-onset of terminal illness. Whether the graha that occupies randhrasthāna suggests a rapid exit at an old age [Shani] or a rapid exit at a young age (Chandra, Surya, Mangala, Shukra, Budha) or in middle age [Guru] it is nevertheless a decisive agency which predicts minimal preparation time.
1st-from-svakshetra. Pure and intense results for secret sources of empowerment for the physical body (athleticism, yoga mastery; muscular tone); transformative healing through the surgical skill; and tantric allure in material appearance of the personality integrity.

Although this placement does somewhat mystify the personality of the father, it has numerous benefits. Taxation is normally not a burden, secret liaisons of the spouse if they occur at all are rarely secret, and religious or philosophical doctrine has a rejuvenating effect.
The third lifepartnership , if any, may be overly prone to undisclosed activity, but even so one may have knowledge of this (2nd-from-8 = knowledge of the masked) and be well apprised toward fortunate decisions.

Also priests of the temple and officiants of university culture who are empowered to approve new professors, such as academic advisor and dissertation approval board.
Father and Father-Figures (9) keep many secrets (8). Randhra bhava should be strong to produce tangible evidence of the father's mysterious knowledge; otherwise the secrets remain hidden. Naturally, other graha in 9 accompanying the randhresha-8 -in-9 will alter the prognosis.
[Surya in bhava-9] is a masculine position which rarely includes women.
father keeps secrets about politics, theatre, creativity, literature, genius.
Those who play the roles of professor, preacher, pontificator, pandita, pater-noster, patron, patriarch tend to be intentional mystifiers, who prefer not to teach in the authentic sense but rather hide and veil the higher truths, hoping to gain reverence without providing a clarifying wisdom. The father-figures wish to be honored for their wisdom. Yet usually they obscure the light of their understanding, rather than shine it.
mother keeps secrets about Karkata matters including oceans, property boundaries, transport, schooling.

Father-figures and indoctrinators may keep secrets about hidden children, occult doctrines, esoteric philosophy, masked priesthood, cloaked wisdom.
Father is often a professor, patriarch, patron, philosopher, or priest. Dad may also be involved in ideologically motivated espionage or undercover activities.
Those who play the roles of preacher, pontificator, pandita, or pater-noster tend to be intentional mystifiers. They may be generous people, and they may preach upon tolerance. Yet, randhresha-in-9 prefers to hide the power of transformative wisdom  behind a facade of optimistic philosophy.
Public guidance figures  often hold a globalist worldview [Guru]. However, their beliefs, their catechism, and their theoretical principles often obscure their ultimate understanding.
Ironically, self-righteous karako-bhavo-nashto randhresha Guru-8 often signifies a patronizing father and paternalistic spiritual teachers whose tendency to be pulled into the world of secret empowerments is a drain upon their wisdom teaching.
randhresha-8 = [Shukra in bhava-9]
Father-figures and indoctrinators may keep secrets about partners, contracts, arrangements, alliances, sugars, money, pleasures.
Father is often an artist, draftsman, designer, architect, financier, broker, or negotiator. Potential for early demise of the father.
Those who play the roles of preacher, pontificator, pandita, pater-noster, patron, or patriarch tend to be intentional mystifiers. They may be pleasant people, and they may preach upon justice. Yet, randhresha-in-9 prefers to hide the power of transformative wisdom  behind a facade of sugary philosophical platitudes.
Public guidance figures such as professors and guru-figures  are contractually paid [Shukra] to deliver wisdom. However, their sensuality, their financial arrangements, and their partners such as mates and advisors, often obscure their conceptual understanding. Generally, external teachers may be experienced as superficial and sacharine [Shukra] in matters of theory and higher principle.
When [Shukra in bhava-9] becomes lagnesha, one may become an ideologue.
Nevetheless, there are certain exceptions [such as Rahu-Ketu in 8, or parivartamsha with explanatory Budha-8] which may cause [Shukra in bhava-9] to sermonize from an occult worldview with true clarity of descriptive detail.
Much depends on any graha which may reside in bhava-8.
randhresha-8 [Shani in bhava-9]
Father-figures and indoctrinators may keep secrets about government, regulations, laws of time and space, age, skeletons, structures
Father is often a fundamentalist believer who demands a simplified and rigid interpretation of higher truths. One's own paradigm of belief = typically materialistic, strict, and principled.
Those who play the roles of professor, preacher, pontificator, pandita, pater-noster, patron, or patriarch tend to be intentional mystifiers. They may be respectable people, and they may preach upon discipline. Yet, randhresha-in-9 prefers to hide the power of transformative wisdom  behind a facade of restrictive rules-and-regulations.
Although public guidance figures such as professors and guru-figures  are institutionally positioned to deliver wisdom, they may have fearful limitations which obscure their understanding. Intimidated by the transcendent higher teachings, they instead preach upon fundamentalism and empiricism.
Much depends on any graha which may reside in bhava-8.
If the randhresha-8 is damaged, misuse of confidential information and potential for illicit (8) abundance (9) via secret relationships and hidden treasuries. Lucky (9) taxable-money (8) situation; generally avoids most taxation.
Agency of eruption, emergence, upheaval in bhava-9
Potentially dangerous or sudden, unexpected eruptions of force, social-material or psycho-emotional, find agency in the figure of the father, guru, professor, priest, world travelers, teacher-preachers, panditi, university and temple personnel.
randhresha-8 tantric and magical knowledge can be successfully used in the positive development of religious understanding, but this this utility is only available to those with adequate philosophical education.
The nature of the upset (8) affecting one's relationship with the father or philosophical teacher, or possibly the entire belief system, is further described by the karaka.
The most fundamental signification is the randhresha-8 carries the force of death and rebirth (8) into bhava-9, so that the premature death of the father or guru shapes one 's consciousness in this life.
Chandra randhresha-8 occupies bhava- 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden Own mother, or father's hidden liquids, secrets of the tides, the ocean
Mangala randhresha-8 occupies bhava-9 = father's (or guru's) hidden male sexual practices; father's identity with military, penetrative engineering, and athleticism. Mangala-9 is Particularly difficult for the father, with a tendency to parental abusiveness or other dominating behavior conducted in secret and managed with denial on the part of the father.
Shukra randhresha-8 occupies bhava- 9 = father's (or guru 's) hidden-tantrik alliance, or dad's alcohol/sweets issues (or both).
Budha randhresha-8 occupies bhava-9 = father's (or guru's) hidden publications or reports, writings; can also be secret sexual relationships
Guru randhresha-8 randhresha in 9 = hidden father and hidden husband.
Shani randhresha-8 occupies bhava- 9 = father's (or guru's) hidden rigidity, vulgarity, ignorance
For the younger person or one of otherwise inadequate apprehension, effects of randhresha-8 in 9 are more likely to emerge as socially negative along the lines of covert, perhaps illicit behaviors of the father, or discovery of misbehavior of the guru or secret and contradictory implications of the orthodox sacred teachings.
It is the signification of secret or mysterious knowledge which is encoded in sacred scripture that is potentially the most beneficial to the sufficiently educated one.
The main value of inheritance from the parents and other immediate ancestors = religious wisdom, including wisdom about the value of ritual performance regardless of underlying belief.
This is a particularly beneficial placement. randhresha-8 in 9 indicates an inherited (8) connection to religious education, based in the parents' values and the parents' (perhaps hidden) relationships with religious teachers, consecrations, ceremonial vows, and sacred temples.
There is much acquisition or materialization of the earlier training, perhaps a blooming of the genetic predisposition toward wisdom-knowledge which is physically inherited from the parents, during the mahadasha of the randhresha-8 .
randhresha-8 = a hidden function in life and this placement will not ordinarily assist the public acknowledgement of one's religious or moral teaching roles, except in specifically tantrik, esoteric, or magical subjects.
randhresha-8 in dharma bhava reduces one 's inclination to indulge in public religious ceremonies but increases the power of magical teachings.
When Guru = randhresha-8 in 9, one, or one's father may be prone to association with tantrik religious lineages that blur the distinction between esoteric and popular religious knowledge.
Randhresha-in-9 is a socially dicey but exciting position which can result either in a fraudulent priesthood or in a great awakening through self-destruction and rejuvenation . One may not be accepted into the conventional temple priesthood but may have a doctrinal or ideological empowerment nonetheless. Tendency to undermine the pomposity of university and globalist ideologies.
The lord of transformative destruction has entered the house of the father/parents, guru, priesthood, cultural ethos, religious liturgy , and higher wisdom. 2nd-from-svakshetra: comfortable results for secret sources of empowerment for food, family, face, and finance; transformative healing through (recovery of) family history lineage; and tantric allure in speech expressions of value and reckoning of mystical history.
Deep cycles of disruptive transformation affect The father . Father's deepest understanding of magical forces and transformative movements affects one . Sometimes this understanding is conceptually articulated and sometimes it is simply rhythmic, intuitive, and expressed in a lifestyle that accommodates catastrophic changes." Often the father is not long-lived.
randhresha-8 in bhava-9 = the father is self-destructive in some fashion, according to the character of the graha.
Father and guru are social changes agents, overt or covert. Conventional religion is destroyed, and in its place a more tantric philosophy based on secret teachings .
Father's life is short due to direct influence of the destroy-and-rebirth randhresha-8 . Very broad view of large-scale atomic, cellular, personal, social, and historic change cycles. Not deceived by change of form - thus, less impressed by public sacrifice and religious liturgy (although rarely disrespectful of it).
One may become a guru within a privileged lineage, or abandon the priest/professor role altogether. In the most comfortable case, native teaches privileged insights into longevity/circumstances of death, the nature of empowerment and change, and the cycles of birth and death.

QUOTATION From Planets in Signs and Houses , by Bepin Behari, p. 150
" In the tenth house, the lord of the eighth provides the individual with employment in government
but his professional efficiency is low,
and he is not well spoken of.
His mother dies early in his life."

As Shri B.V. Raman often said, this or any other predicted outcome must be corroborated by several other indicators. Behari naturally employs the same caveat.
