[Dhanayoga = Guru-2 rules-11]

many voice

much speech

treasuries of valuable goods and knowledge

Brihaspati always means well and He brings into the bhava of His residence the benefits of Easy Access to matters of the two sthāna under Guru's rulership.

Guru-2 = a splendid position for music [Shukra], voice, song, spoken poetry. Grants a large mouth and a large, flexible tongue.

However, Guru in svabhava of Guru's enemy Shukra has some problems related to overexpansion resulting in imbalance:

well-intentioned but inflated or overconfident speech

beneficial for singers, comedians, dramatists

expands the range and compassion for Public Speakers

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt [protective-patriotic Magha-4]

cheerfully expanded valuation of one's own knowledge

  • Guru-2 may optimistically assess the size of His herd-hoard, boasting perhaps of the maximum-possible-range - rather than the average working midpoint value -- of His collections of food, money, goods, knowledge, et-cetera.

  • generally, a loud voice or produces loud sounds (beneficial for performers, musicians, singers)

Icon of // Traditional Values //

Guru opens access to

  • knowledge of aesthetic and financial values
  • recorded tales and languages of the historic values lineage

hoards of affluence

Value, value, value

  • historical value
  • shareholder value
  • production value
  • investment value
  • family value
  • moral value
  • pricing, evaluation, assessment

[Guru in bhava-2] contributes to the perception that the culture of one's family of origin is philosophical, generous, or expanded (physically, artistically, socially, or financially). The family lineage may contain professors, dogmatists, preachers, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, or globalists. The vocabulary of paradigms of belief may be a salient feature of the family identity.

Guru occupies 8th-from-7th = many secretive transformations of the family assets

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt [protective-patriotic Magha-4] [navamsha Guru-Karkata-uchcha] AER refused the offer of divorce from her unfaithful husband, preferring to maintain their financial and social estate, keeping both honor and monies within the family

Generous speech using a vocabulary of faith in humanistic [Guru] values.

However, there is a pit-fall when super-optimistic Guru occupies the sthāna of oral-pleasures Shukra. Guru exaggerates the natural human propensity to derive sensual pleasure from one's own speech. Humans enjoy and indeed crave the sound of human voices, but one may enjoy the sound of one's own voice a bit pompously much..

[Guru in bhava-2] = greatly cheered and inspired by the sound of one's own voice.

One enjoys listening to oneself spout wisdoms, and due to inflation of value in the family culture one may presume that others too are deeply grateful to hear the inspiring words of one who holds such exceptionally high-value knowledge.

Guru [nīcha] 2 speaks over-confidently upon a presumption of the wisdom of materialism. Faith in the validity of speech claims may be based on inflated values .

In a naturally materialistic bhava of Shukra, it is possible that [uchcha] Guru in bhava-2 may develop a culture of overly inflated values in the family-of-origin: one may be given to believe that one's character, financial well-being, and aesthetic values are so precious as to be nearly divine. If the lord of bhava-2 is also strong, grandiosity and pomposity of speech may be noted.

Second marriage multiples

Speech, teeth and mouth = benefited. Wealth, historical knowledge, giving of speeches, singing, telling stories.

Guru = karaka for language.

Extraordinary talking, negotiating, discussing and debating.

Marvelously broad view of history and ethno-cultural values of art, music, and food.

Family support is generally strong (and tends to be inflated, over-praising the native for reasonably normal accomplishments).

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes [secretive-revealing Dhaniṣṭha-4] [Guru-yuti-Mangala] Maria Bernarda's family suffered poverty and other miseries. Yet, the political support of her parents, siblings, and cousins was unwavering during the many inquisitions made against the veracity (2) of her clairsentient claims. After the ordeal, her family came into a much improved economic experience [Kumbha].

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito [Guru = bargaining Pūrvāṣāḍhā-3] [Guru-yuti-Shani] The Chrysanthemum Emperor was praised and honored excessively as the divinely designated head of the Japanese Family upon Earth.

One hails from a strong bloodline. Strong powers of speech and if Guru is well-disposed, good teethr.

Dhana-sthāna = 11th-from-4th = gain of family affluence through real estate, education, development of properties and vehicles.


Feminine nativity lifepartner significator

  • Guru dhava-karaka husband

Often, the wifely-companion meets the life partner in a lineage-treasury setting = collections of money, records, databases, libraries and galleries, warehouses, gathering of historic values or recording the family history.

Guru-2 family bloodline, stored assets, occupies secretly transformative 8th-from-7th

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt [protective-patriotic Magha-4] [navamsha Guru-Karkata-uchcha] AER married the financially privileged, politically ideological [Guru Simha] and legendary voice-empowered [2] FDR

The lifepartner's identification with stored collections of valuable goods and conserved knowledge is important to her, and the partner's ability to accumulate value, including the stated interest in continuing the family line, may form the basis of the union.

  • UK-PM Path to Power 1925-2013 Margaret Thatcher [bargaining-contractual Pūrvāṣāḍhā-3] Although MRT herself held the visible PM empowerment, her lifepartner DT was a political kingmaker + sports gambler. Guru-2-Dhanus rules 2 + 5

First marriage for feminine-nativity are often focused on financial well-being accumulation and the lineage cultural values of the husband's family history. Acquisition of knowledge to be transformed directly into affluence . This is a distinctively financial orientation.

Regardless of the external conditions of the union, the feminine-figure may retain a respect for the hoarded wealth and a belief in its importance in her life.

Many kinds of Many

For Urisha indriya-lagna and Simha indriya-lagna, Guru-2 is also the randhresha * lord of bhava-8, many occurrences of the Conditions of dematerialization (frequently seen in nativities of disaster responders, hospital-hospice medical workers. caretakers for elderly et-cetera.)
