The Messenger

Comfort Zone for Chandra-3

  • emotionally available to talk about feelings

  • soothed by media-messaging - in the flow of commerce, cinema, communications

  • needs safety in the business setting

  • sensitive conversational rhythms

  • familiar [Chandra] to the audience (3, hearing)

  • often in media work

  • emotionally sensitive to casework, transactional process

  • nested into management roles

  • caretaking administrator

  • nourished by gesturing signaling flow

  • sensitive to conversational needs

  • habituated to familiar rhythms of sibling-cousin, teams, neighbors, small groups

  • neighborhood caretaker

  • anchored into responsive communicator-coordinator roles

  • sense of belonging in commercial environments

  • soothed by short-term frequent travels

  • Comfortable with cameras, advertising, sales, photography, publications

  • Mentality of a parent-figure

To feel secure, Chandra-3 typically needs an inflow of conversational information (such as news, or research data) and outflow of instructional description (such as administration or reporting).

  • Devdas 1973- drama-fashion Aishwarya Rai [designing-arranging Pūrvāṣāḍhā-3] [Atmakaraka] + [Mūla-Shukra-yuti-Rahu-Mula] AR expanded her fashion modeling efforts from strictly visual image [modeling] into dramatic acting. Critics note that her performance quality improves when she is supported by an ensemble cast [3]

  • Origin of Species 1809-1892 naturalist Charles Darwin [hierarchical-regulatory Uttarāṣāḍha-2] Lifework = writing, illustrating, publishing. CRD was clearly comfortable in the roles of data-manager, process-administrator, and collections-coordinator. After a five-year data-gathering ocean voyage [Chandra oceans] CRD spent the rest of his life presenting [3] his data to the scientific world. Due to [Mangala-yuti-Rahu] in 10th-from-Chandra, CRD wrote and copiously illustrated some of the most influential scientific books in modern western civilization.

When Chandra occupies bhava-3, the indriya-lagna is located in 11th-from-Chandra which adds a community engagement, and potentially socialite skills (depending on graha in 1)

  • POTUS-pair-18 Civil War 1826-1902 Julia Dent Grant [diplomatic-arranging Pūrvaphalgunī-3] [Atmakaraka] [Somana-yuti-Guru] [3] JDG's musical entertainments filled the Whitehouse during her husband's celebrated POTUS term. The horrors, fears, and deprivations of the Civil War were finally finished, and JDG knew how to celebrate. She invited skilled musicians, singers, and dramatists to perform in popular outdoor venues. With a more intimate Whitehouse audience, JDG herself played piano and sang. She charmed the newspaper journalists [3] and perhaps briefly calmed [Chandra] some of the ongoing post-war resentments among JDG's political adversaries.

One has a special affinity for 11th-matters such as friendship interlinkage, large assemblies, economic systems, profitability, and social-participation networks which are targeted to reach social-material goals.


[Chandra in classroom-3] feels soothed, calmed, anchored in communications environments, such as

  • business endeavor, commerce,
  • photographs, advertising, image profiling, public-relations
  • media-messaging, sales, marketing, reporting,
  • project management, interviews, reporting
  • cohort-collaboration, teamwork, ensemble performance,
  • announcements, transactions, data handling
  • radio-television-internet-magazines,
  • writing, publication, administration,
  • explanation, instruction, description, diagramming,
  • manual process, skilled handcraft, manufacturing,
  • apprenticeship, training
  • sibling-cousin groups, department meetings,
  • information technology, documentation,
  • detail, retail
  • conversation, package delivery, entrepreneurship
  • planning, scheduling, schematics, mapping, itineraries

Localized emotional focus upon the immediate co-workers or sibling-group

Chandra-3 seeks comfort in conversation, translation, writing, short-term business travels and holidays. Chandra-3 is particularly sensitive to siblings-cohort and the welfare of team. Often found in media-communication roles.

Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response. Chandra-3 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of emotional patterns within acts of communication. Somana-3 deeply feels the need for familiar, rhythmic routines of small-group process, such as cohort cooperation, department meetings, and team messaging.

The parents are often manual craft workers, commercial businesspeople, shopkeepers, administrators, managers, or writers. The child becomes acclimatized to the customary patterns of daily conversation and information processing. Candescent Chandra may allow one to become comfortable with the tasks of documentation and management from an early age.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx [brokering-bargaining Bharani-3] + [uchcha- Surya-yuti-Rahu] KM parents were merchants

  • UK Princess of Wales 1982- photographer Kate Middleton [competitive-innovative Punarvasu-1] [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] (3) Kate Middleton's parents = shopkeepers, managing a party-supplies business

  • War and Peace 1828-1910 Leo Tolstoy [Chandra occupies analytical-ministering Pūrvaphalgunī-2] + [Surya-yuti-Budha] parents were estate administrators, who managed hundreds of serf-workers, pathways, vehicles, agricultural processes, livestock, homes. LNT derived much of his value as a literary personality from his aristocratic family lineage [Chandra rules-2]

Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra

Anything which may be said of Chandra must be prefaced by a disclaimer. Professor Chandra is the soul of impressionability. He lives to reflect. Therefore, the characteristics of other graha yuti Chandra are often more in evidence than the underlying behaviors of Chandra Himself.

  1. Somana + Kuja * Emotionally competitive
  2. Somana + Budha * Emotionally communicative
  3. Somana + Guru * Emotionally effusive* Emotionally expansive
  4. Somana + Shukra * Emotionally indulgent
  5. Somana + Shani * Emotionally constricted
  6. Somana + Surya * Emotionally entitled * Emotionally self-focused
  7. Somana + Rahu * Emotionally expedient
  8. Somana + Ketu * Emotionally scattered

Emotionally Motivated Commercial business, management, communications, signaling, media-message, instruction, explanation, description, cooperation, Plans, Announcements, Teamwork and Short-term Travel * psycho-mental sensitivity

Affectionate Comforting Feelings when in the company of Siblings, Cohort, Workgroup, ensemble, department, neighborhood, vicinity, cooperative, collaborative, interactive

Comforted by Conversation

Chandra-3 needs constant talk and chatter in order to feel emotionally involved in the lives of the comfortable cohort.

Needs frequent and rhythmic short-term travel, frequent and rhythmic information sharing, frequent and rhythmic collaboration toward a presentation, announcement, or display.

Chandra-3 = a facilitator, instructor and explainer in the parental, protective style. Gifted in managing apprentices. Generally content in a small-group environment such as the work-team, entourage, or performance ensemble.

Feels grounded and stable when conversing about the life-narratives of siblings, cousins, co-workers, neighbors; a friendly sort who feels comfortable in mixed-media information environments, when engaged in predictably repetitive high-frequency tasks.

Comfortable with the rhythms of frequent short-term travel, attending meetings and appointments, team coordination, administering daily business.

Professor Chandra is less welcome in a svabhava classroom of Budha

The emotions [Chandra] become mentalized, and tend to present more superficially [Budha] as mental sentiment rather than deep intuition.

However, if Chandra-3 has companion graha, one may be an excellent writer of reports and announcements. With Rahu-3 an intense emotional passion for writing.

Likes to take short holidays (3) near the ocean [Chandra]. Likes conferences, seminars, business travel., media-messaging.

In business, may be a manager or coordinator. With Budha-3, an emotionally engaging translator or instructor.

Mother = a writer, craftsperson, businessperson, or village manager.

  • Origin of Species 1809-1892 naturalist Charles Darwin [hierarchical-regulatory Uttarāṣāḍha-2] Mom = Susannah Wedgwood, who hailed from a manufacturing family. Socialite musician heiress of the Wedgwood potteries fortune. mom was busy.

Typically, a talkative somewhat flighty (words are birds) person, content with small distractions; sentimental attachment to the younger sibling.

Affinity for workplace and neighborhood affairs.

Professor Chandra in svabhava of talkative Budha

  • Emotionally attached to the sibling-schoolmate cohort, retinue (3)

  • sentimental attachment to the younger sibling

  • emotionally attached to the father-in-law (9th from 7th)

  • emotionally attached to the family of the second spouse (if any)

  • Exceptionally sensitive to interactive communication, conversational reporting, and perceived coupling

  • Emotional Chandra is slightly uncomfortable in Mental-messenger Budha's svabhava-3. Soma needs to be sensitive, responsive and emotionally intuitive while Budha prefers a quick-transaction, hyper-logical environment.

  • chatty talking may be an anxiety response in times of emotional stress.

Typically quite talkative and also an intuitive writer;

  • Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro [announcing-managing Hasta-3] [Chandra-3 parivartamsha Budha-1] famed for his hours-long and bombastic speeches. Chandra occupies the mulatrikona of Budha.

Sahaja Bhava-3= 12th-from Soma's natural residence Bandhu bhava = mentalized, busy location for normally soothing, calming, non-verbal Chandra.

  • Restlessness of mind

  • Mental agitation

Very supportive placement for writer, especially of shorter discourses or in a primarily journalistic, factual reporting style.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx Although he is most famous for writing a legendary philosophy of economy, the majority of his documents were written collaboratively [3] with scholar Friedrich Engels. KM's publications consisted mainly of copious, detailed reporting on the brutaly squalid life [Mesha] of the dehumanized laboring classes.

Can be emotionally draining in regard to one's relationship toward the parents; However, by way of compensation, one's emotional affinity for siblings is often increased.

Emotionally most comfortable in the company of one's younger siblings

in The writing studio; making films and radio announcements arranging meetings and organizing travel plans;

radio + television programs; conferences; pamphlets

small group discussions , adult skills training, conferences, and seminars

constant rhythmic routine [Chandra] of touring, business travel, frequently repeating familiar visits

excellent for ensemble work and corporate teams

Strong emotional attachment to playmates, younger siblings and cousins, childhood neighbors .

  • Emotional need to engage in commerce in order to facilitate self-made treasury .

  • Emotional need for mental activity, conversation, and media communication.


When Chandra occupies Bhava-3, 7th-from-Chandra becomes Bhava-9.

Partner = father figure , often a priestly humanitarian who may preach upon moral philosophy and holy scripture or otherwise pontificate.

The union may involve religious undertakings. Partner may be even busier and more traveling-about than Chandra-3 native.

Chandra occupies a svabhava of Bantering Budha.

  • Chandra has no enemies, therefore Chandra sees Professor Budha as a friend

  • However, messaging, mental Budha onsiders pre-verbal, emotional Chandra as an enemy.

  • Result = fluctuating Mentality.

The main polarizing catalysis with Chandra in Sahaja bhava = one ABSORBS the relentless mentalization of human communication into oneself. This can create some emotional pressure when listening, reflective silence or intuitive comprehension are required.

If other graha strengthen Chandra in bhava-3, one may be a great talker with a great resistance to listening.

In particular, cannot tolerate to hear cautionary advice or uncomfortable , contradictory viewpoint. Due to a deep emotional attachment to one particular explanation of the facts, Chandra-3 tends to"block out"alternative narratives which might present the story from a different point of view.

As the John Wayne movie character famously said,"That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it."

If other graha amplify Chandra, the habitual emotional resistance other stories may eventually deafen the hearing.

Emotional needs

Needs to communicat e, a team player, a spokesperson for team values and ideas. Not always a highly verbal person, but always mentally active.

A natural narrative writer , but depends on Budha whether the writing style is pragmatic (business memos, reports, technical manuals) or literary (poems, novels, screenplays).

Mind [Chandra]

Indecisive Fluctuating mind is not ideal for detail-oriented conventional business culture, but may have valuable insights that can be developed by other more pragmatic team members

Repetitive thought patterns (3) habitually cycle through a narrative of domestic matters: home, family, mother, the homeland Soma's rashi and drishti to Chandra will determine the messaging style.

If Shani casts drishti to Bhava-3, look for a somber viewpoint and emotional depression.

Emotionally sensitive communications; can be psychic; but may be a meddler if the teachings of Professor Chandra are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (Usually, via constrictive drishti).Hands (3)

Strong Chandra in bhava-3 = manu-facture of objects of parental nurturing through the craft of the hands

Siblings, entourage, and ensemble performance

the core emotional meaning of life is embedded in sibling-cousin groups, work-sports team, dramatic ensemble, and neighbor relationships.

Strong attachment to siblings, cousins, coworkers and the circle of family and friends. Lots of maternal, sheltering energy spread around their close friends, neighbors, and coworkers Normally a good friend and loyal family member.

Much affection for and attachment to the younger siblings and cousins. Gains emotional validation from ensemble work of all kinds.

Sentimental, protective love of siblings-cousins, especially the immediate younger one. Strong emotional identification with family communications involving mother and siblings.


Mom = talkative, involved with her siblings, and mentally very active. Mother likes talking with her children, even more when the children reach adulthood. Chandra-3 learns fluent communication from a chatty, media-loving mom.

(Naturally, the drishti of Shani, Kuja, Rahu-Ketu or a dushthamsha lord upon Soma will alter this favorable prognosis.)

6ChandraGreenMoon.png Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude

When Chandra occupies Bhava-3, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-3rd = randhra bhava. Depending on conditions in Bhava-8, expect affective planned misalignments requiring realignment attention due to disagreements about the spouse's money (joint assets of marriage); wills and inheritance; death; surgeries; insurance; renovations and restorations; and the marital in-laws.

  • Chandra as activator of randhrasthāna may produce emotional servitude = giving more than one receives, particularly during Chandra bhukti. The in-laws = a particular source of that problem of disappointment or exploitative overwork.

  • Death and care of the dying requires output of more energy than one can receive in return, as the deceased will leave the earthly vale before an exchange is possible; yet, with every dematerialization process that is assisted, one is oneself reborn. Randhrabhava = container of mystery.

  • Chandra-3 with a strong ethic of service may become an extraordinary death healer (hospice worker) with Chandra in 3.

6th-from-Chandra -3 = bhava-8

The site of emotional animosity includes agency of human enemies and situations that contain fearful secrets and sudden upheavals = Randhra Bhava-8 = 6th-from-Chandra

  • rather naturally over the course of the incarnation, there will arise some polarizing catalysis through hidden forces and confidential information

  • Unless there are strong graha in 8, one may feel emotionally unsuited to carry out the requirements of the dealing with in-laws, taxes, the secret dealings of the spouse, other people's money in general, emergencies, and managing the Conditions of dematerialization and rebirth including catastrophic divorce.

  • As result, one may feel enslaved to the task of managing or exposing secrets .

The man may be especially distrustful of his mother-in-law. Chandra-3 may take up with a relative from the mother's family, a servant or paid worker.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx [brokering-bargaining Bharani-3] + [uchcha- Surya-yuti-Rahu] residing in bhava-3 = long-running affair, and a child, with his housekeeper

The woman may find that Feminine Nativities involved in the extramarital or secret affairs of her partner or herself (8) can generate conditions of intense animosity or fear. The husband may take up with a servant or employee. (6th from 3rd).

Generally she is a good communicator who has nice affinity for her siblings, and a sister (or close sisterly friend) may provide conversational therapeutic support even in a highly conflicted (6) situation.
