From His svabhava, bubbly Budha-8

occupies 3rd-from-6 and 6th-from 3

The Learning Pathway requires discussing the undiscussable, explaining the frightful (8) and often exposing the carefully hidden.

Budha-8 represents students, pupils, apprentices, disciples [Budha] mastering the Narrative of Identity Transformation, Hidden Treasures, and Mysteries

Randhrasthāna is the svabhava of invasive, penetrating Mangala, and Kuja is an enemy of Budha.

Therefore quick-witted, chatty, conversational Budha is generally uncomfortable in randhrastana's intensively transformative, non-disclosing, secretively covered, camouflaged, cauldron of identity-change

May be a genius of crisis management. (Crisis 8, Budha management).

The common combination of confident, entitled Surya-yuti-Budha is often found information-intensive roles within undisclosed, classified, or camouflaged organizations. Administration for disaster control.

Masters of Secret Information

Professor Budha's specialties = talking, gesturing, reporting, writing, painting, tool-using, technology-applying, arguing, criticizing, explaining, instructing, training, short-term, near-goal travel and constantly interacting with others, measuring

When stationed in classroom-8, Professor Budha follows the instructional curriculum of randhrasthāna. He is assigned to the task of delivering the objectified narrated experience and ongoing discussion of

  • undisclosed information

  • mysteries, occult agency

  • hidden data, hidden assets, hidden treasures

  • confidential knowledge

  • secret relationships, obscured liaisons, secret alliances

  • sudden identity changes; sudden change of circumstance

  • eruptions of hidden information into the mentality

  • revolutionary explanations, interpretations, descriptions, and instructions

Also discourse of identity change, the rhetoric of political revolution and disaster management, upheavals in the conduct the in-laws, and sudden outbursts of previously unseen verbal forces.

Budha can be more tame and less incendiary when combined with other more adjustable graha.

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams [community-systems Kṛttikā-3] [Chandra-yuti-Surya] Narrative of principled change, driven by a foundational understanding of Christian inclusivity and spiritual equity. His initiatives [8] were sadly rejected due to a harsh 10th-drishti incoming from a fearful Shani terrifed of change.

This is a complex angle socially but favorable in esoteric applications because Budha plans, meets, and argues rather well on a 3- 6 basis.

Generally prone to divorce, disagreement within relationships personal and professional, and some variety of illness (usually mental illness ); However, budha-8 is blessed with writing skills and may become an exponent of secret teachings.

Naturally, the Kumara's communicative and hand-craft skills seek to manage things of hidden or esoteric nature. Supports literacy in the tantrik textual traditions, and publications that promote mysterious, secretive, or emergency-oriented content.

(Note: apocalyptic or end-of-the-world fantasies are more associated with bhava-12 = dreams, imagination)

Forensic analysis; secret codes; confidential information

Combinations of 8th-from+ randhresha-8 , and Budha can produce a splendid detective mentality with special articulatory, analytical, and reporting skills in regard to hidden knowledge, mysteries ancient and modern (including criminal deeds).

Tantrik mentality; can transmit knowledge and assets from confidential or hidden sources.

A natural mentality for exploratory investigations and expository writings. Seeks to mine, drill, delve into unknown reaches of lands, knowledge, and discover hidden treasures.

In Watery rashi, does the planning and analysis for undersea explorations.

However, Must have the muscular support of Mangala to do the actual physical diving, drilling, or discovery. Grants neither a long life nor a short one. Longevity depends on Budha's lord.

Thoughts tend to dwell on matters of social rank and position, duty and responsibility to the public. Leadership conferred without government title.

(Note: Magical powers are more associated with Budha + bhava-12 = legerdemain, imagination)

Explaining-instruction-description, esp. via writing of surgical, tantrik, emergency, and magical skills; all verbal and written expressions of occult knowledge; and transformative healing through evocation of articulated past-life memoryr.

death from illness, in the presence of companions , often the spouse is present. The funeral is a social event, Budha-8 's life is reviewed appreciatively . Cheerful send-off. Native continues to chat from the beyond.

Those whose nativity features Budha in bhava-8 can pick up his astral signal.

Where the Thoughts do Linger

The bhava which is 3rd-from-Budha also creates a"landing pad" upon which the thoughts tend to dwell and linger.

Naturally, if graha occupy this "focus " bhava, the nature of the repeating narrative engagement with those electro-magnetic initiating thoughts will adjust according to the character of the tenant grahar.

thoughts focus upon third-from-Budha = [karma-bhava-10]

Social leadership, duty, public dignity, social authority, hierarchical rank, / pecking order /

  • institutional decision-making

  • bureaucracy, government, responsibilities,

  • conventional rules

  • law and order

  • ways to get recognition and respect

QUOTATION Das /Behari commentary

" Mercury has the special characteristic of retrieving from past influences things which strengthen the mind ,

  • as a result of which you are able to cultivate relationships which are conducive to material prosperity, eminent status , and considerable wealth.

Under this impulse, you are able to explore mystical, virgin areas of nature which open up exceptional opportunities in life.

  • On the physical plane, however, you beget very few children

  • and suffer from stomach and thigh ailments.

Gainful; gives longevity, prosperity, land and property.

Government favor. Annihilation of the enemy. Glorious. Enjoys long life.

Renowned in own and foreign land .

Cheerful; gains through business.

  • Enjoys the pleasure and confidence of the opposite sex.

You are blessed with longevity, reputation and wealth; debauch but famous for your qualities, glorious; hostile but philanthropic, ungrateful, vicious, sexy, liar and ailing.

End is peaceful."
