multiple ancestors

many prayers and telepathic knowings

multiple sanctuaries, many guides

many bridges between material and astral planes

many enclosures; much hospitalization; many interactions with distant lands

growth and expansion of spiritual guidance

wide-scope imagination

expansive interiority

optimistic convalescence experiences

philosophy of seclusion

frequent visits from ancestor spirits

many meditations, much quietude

Guru the philosopher and doctor-of-doctrine is especially well placed in svabhava of Guru.

Spirit guides are active in this life and much imaginative intelligence is engaged.

However, the instructions of the ancestral Guide's tend to direct one along a portion of the astral-to-material path (12) which develops the intuitive wisdom via dreams or reflective prayer [Guru].

  • Guru grants many opportunities for spiritual awakening via private relationships, travel to distant lands and receiving instruction in dreams.

Guru in bhava-12 = humanistic perspective and philosophical tolerance necessary to teach or speak philosophically about private experience.

Many research interests, and usually a generously supported success in laboratory undertakings

Guru the Teacher in bhava-12 can explain clandestine foreign diplomacy

or private bedroom wisdom (12)

May have a special compassionate understanding of those who live in isolation

greatly developed visionary imagination

the path toward spiritual redemption via meditation and private prayer

Guru in Vyaya bhava is able to include astrology and dreams in the full portfolio of one's wisdom resources.

Guru's broad perspective validates and accommodates all of the psychic traffic on the bridge between the astral plane (subconscious) and the material plane (conscious).

Guru in 12 also contributes to the dissolution of the material plane identity. Guru's belief system and religious practices tend to siphon off the vitality from the animal, blood-fed, muscular body and transmit the life-force back into the dream world.

As a result Guru becomes associated with losses and the two domains which Brihaspati activates will get drained of their positive reserves.

One of the more interesting implications of a strong Guru in 12 is the possibility of clandestine children.

  • Examples include the "very married" USA Sen. John Edwards (2008 shaming-scandal) who fathered a child with a staff assistant then denied both the bedroom relationship and the child until Rahu's transit to his vyayabhava exposed the truth.

Another outcome can be one's children will live in a different land or be raised in a boarding school.

In a feminine nativity, matters of the husband [Guru] may be enclosed.

  • POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower [political-ceremonial Pūrvaphalgunī-1] [vargottamsha] Although always engaged in promoting her husband's career, mDE usually chose a private, largely invisible path of influence (12). Due to DDE's military career, his frequent requests for foreign postings, and a pattern of disaffection between the partners, the husband was often a distant figure (12).

Contemplative, retreating Vyayasthāna = Vrihas-pati's svabhava. bhava-12 is a hospitable location for scope-expanding, seeker of understanding, big Professor Guru.

  • Guru-12 is blessed with abundant sanctuary in this life .

  • Much beneficial outcome and abundant wisdom through travel to foreign lands, often in pursuit of visionary religious experience. Vivid and productive dream life.

  • High permission [Guru] for private "bedroom" relationships (12) which help the native to maintain a positive attitude toward life. These relationships often involve periods of foreign residence.

  • A great deal of expansive, abundance-producing activity going on behind closed doors.

Well-treated when traveling , Guru-12 creates prosperous circumstances for a wandering foreigner.

Material benefits in life are somewhat reduced, because dharma is channeled more into the subconscious and dream states. Superior dreamer and sanctuary healer. Abundance of bed pleasures .

Rich imagination. Vivid intuitive knowledge of altered states of consciousness, trance healing, and passage through physical death.

Excellent death facilitator, full of wise presence at the time of passage. Understands and accepts the ways of the ancestor spirits.

In evolved nativities, suggests meditative expansion and cultivated development of guidance within a private sanctuary.

Saptarishi in bhava-12 clairsentiently detects the presence of ancestral teachers and guides who preach wisdom-guidance


  • Amazingly rich and vivid philosophical and spiritual imagination

  • may be a highly gifted intuitive healer.

  • Yet, the material manifestation of the two houses ruled by Guru will be expressed only in the world of image and dreams.

The stronger is radix + navamsha Guru by rashi, the more expansive the native 's wisdom and charity fantasies will be.

From bhava-12, Guru casts a weakened but imaginative drishti upon domains-4, -6, and -8.

  • Expansive fantasies enliven the expectations of a grander home (4), amore extensive illness or debt (6), and a greater cache of hidden assets (8).

Vyavasthāna is Brihaspati's svabhava. Guru enjoys this placement and here He facilitates easy communication with the spirits of one's ancestors.

Excellent for the professional spiritualist and psychic medium.

Disinterested in children except as beneficiaries of their charitable vision.

Brihaspati-12 may enjoy a wonderful vision of oneself as a world healer, giving abundantly to all who seek ... Such a fantasy may have realistic aspects if the native is so employed, but more often the native travels that famous road which is "paved with good intentions "r.

Generous Guru is generally happy in His svabhava.

Meditative daydreams

Fantasies (12) of priesthood, professorship, fatherhood, temple teaching or administration, religious knowledge, spiritual guidance, and procreation of children.

Guru-12 represents a person of religious and philosophical knowledge and teaching capabilities in a parallel life , with a strong connection to ocean life.

By default, graha in bhava-12 are characterized by a foggy identity which is 'dissolved' into astral imagery. They tend to be relatively invisible socially, acting from an unseen base. Whether this distinction will manifest again in the current life depends on the supporting graha.

Favors scientific research into ceremonial religion and into the psychology of meditation.


Guru in bhava-12 grants an extraordinary dream life and spiritual companionship of great teachers on the astral plane. Like any graha in bhava-12 however, Guru's outreach means that matters of His bhava and his Karaka affairs are deeply private and enclosed from public view.

Dissolves somewhat the relationship to the husband due to his private dealings

  • drama-commerce 1978- Katie Holmes [disguised-concealing Pushya-4] [Somana-yuti-Guru-uchcha] The the beautiful young actress made a highly publicized marriage to an elder, professionally feted actor. His expansive optimism and goodwill [uchcha-Guru] regarding the union was trumpeted by the press. A lavish lifestyle was provided. However, the clandestine activities of the husband and the salience of his doctrinal beliefs soon began to erode the alliance. [randhresha Guru in 12, erosion] [Sarala Yoga allays most of the danger]

Wifely nativity = dhavakaraka = Guru

  • The wifely-companion may meet her first husbandly-companion in a foreign land, or in highly imaginative environment such as a meditation hall or in a dream.

  • Husbandly persona may hail from a distant land, be first met in a distant land, be concerned with research, be enclosed in a camp, monastery or hospital, or perhaps suffer phantasms or delusions.

Frequent distancing of husband

  • POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower. In the period following World War-2, her husband POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower was nearly worshipped as a man of extraordinary intellect [Simha] and quiet charisma (Simha-12) who had guided the US to victory against crippling odds, in a massive world war. His wife no doubt knew the more human side to this story, including his fear that his plans would fail and his willingness to bargain with the enemy behind-the-scenes (12). Nevertheless, Guru-12 occupies 7th-from-Chandra-6. Although the couple were often separated (12) MDE rallied to support DDE's political goals [Simha].

Her partner's identification with international residence and culture is important to her. The partner's intuitive imagination and expansiveness in the bed-chamber may form the basis of the union from her perspective.

First partner for wifely nativity = associated with sanctuary, retreat, and long residence in foreign lands or long withdrawal into bedroom privacy. It may be growth-challenging to have to deal with the husband's subconscious imagination and buried trauma, but there are only serious homework-problems when a papagraha disturbs Benevolent Brihaspati's natural goodwill.

Regardless of the external status of the union, the wifely nativity may remain connected to her partner through visions and dreams.

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari commentary

" Guru protects you in whatever circumstances you may be placed, slowly and steadily guiding you on your pilgrimage....
