Genius of the Craft

Surya-3 is self-identified with the busyness of business. Surya-3 as merchant, manager, maker of meetings and conferences is busy busy busy!

One may be a brilliant light fountain of administrative activity.

Surya-3 regally proclaims the centrality of one's ability to manage people, processes, and products. One shines the light of confident commercial authority by writing and signing of reports and announcements.

Often an iconic figure in the worlds of manufacturing, production, message delivery, or explanations.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla [evaluating-heritage Punarvasu-2] [Shani-yuti-Surya] + [Budha-yuti-Shukra] NT explained and explained and explained. Sadly, most of the audience was looking only for immediate commercial application. They did not grasp the broader patterns.

Surya's activity may be particularly analytical, detailed, and mentalized if Surya-yuti-Budha.

Much depends as always upon Surya's rashi, nakshatra, bhava, companion graha, incoming drishti, and other environmental influences

Surya-3 = commercially inclined, boasting of His evangelical craft, and proud of His radiant visibility in the cinematic, publishing and mercantile realms.

Center of the Team

  • Psycho 1899-1980 film noir Alfred Hitchcock [rhythmic-undulating Aśleṣa-4] [ Atmakaraka] [Surya-yuti-Shukra] Genius of the craft of cinema publication. Very much the charismatic center of the movie set, yet collaborating with dozens of other specialists.

Father * Surya Pitrikaraka

Father takes a communicative role (3) and is known to his society as a messenger, missionary, envoy, or apostle. Whether his reputation is positive or negative depends upon the 3rd lord * bhatrupathi, and its angle to Surya-3.

Father may practice handcraft, technology, manual skills

  • POTUS-pair-44 Let's Move 1964- Michelle Robinson Obama mRO's dad was a mechanic [3] at the Chicago waterworks. He was also a district manager [3] of the local political organization

Typically, a commercial businessperson, a writer, a media-message signaler, a team-worker, craftsperson, or a planner.

Father is a tool-user, whether that tool is a drawing pen, a computer keyboard, a paintbrush, a scalpel, a laser-beam, a plowshare, or a fishing-net.

Father is concerned with day-to-day matters of transaction and publication. Father may be a promoter, an advertiser, a marketer, transactions manager, signaler, telegrapher, scribe, or announcer.

May be a communications specialist in the place of work, such as trade union representative or human resources clerk. Also skill in packaging and the documentation of goods transport, such as letters of credit and bills of lading. May be especially skilled in making reports and announcements.


  • China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong = vriddhi-pati-11 [Mūla] Surya-3. Mao was the master propagandist of the 20th century. His brief, terse, sloganistic writings were easy to memorize, abstract enough to apply to multiple situations, and distributed widely. Mao's little red book was sized to fit in a shirt pocket and carried daily by millions.


commercial, management, administration, explanations, instructions, writing, publication, cinema-radio-television, itineraries, communications, advertising, sales

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx + [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] * His father was a small businessman, in Germany's petite bourgeois class.

  • Earth Changes 1877-1945 Edgar Cayce [dramatizing-ceremonial Andromeda-1] EC's dad was a part-time insurance salesman and part-time tobacco farmer with a barn full of tools

siblings and team mates * Bright Light in 3

may be overwhelmed by the brightness of one's celebrity aura, making the native seem egoistic in meetings and small-group cooperative process.

Uncomfortable for small-group mechanism as it limits one' ability to praise his team-mates or indeed to see things from another's point of view. One is bright, brilliant, bubbling with creative schemes for messaging and media production. Yet, the intelligent thinking of other team-mates may remain the shadow of one's own ego.

As always, Surya as a malefic does well in upachaya Bhava and in dusthamsha.

  • If Surya furthermore should occupy a rashi of Shani or Shukra, much of the blinding brilliance is reduced. One may not be a patient or cooperative listener, but one's egoism does not run so rampant when Ravi is constrained in an enemy's sign.

bhava-3 extends the speech and money values of bhava-2 from the historic and lineage-based into the realm of the personal (thus bhava-3 = self-made financial wealth .) Charismatic center of attention in personal speech and hearing, as well as styles of writing/media/communication.

Surya-3 is a better placement for communications media like television, radio, and internet audio-video performance where one' own image [Surya] can be identified individually. It is less helpful for writing where the words must speak for themselves, and the visual [Surya] image of the creative author is less well known.

Best results may be shown in cinema, television, any video-visual communications image, so long as the staff understands that the entire production has one and only one central personality: the star!

Surya can be intensely self-reflexive in groupwork settings and with certain combinations Surya-3 both requires groupwork and holds the cohort in contempt.

Believe it or not, Rahu-Surya-Budha in a rashi of Shani in bhava-3 can show an ego-membrane attachment to being depressed. Plenty of people get absolutely stuck in a mental victim state and simply refuse to release their suffering due to ego-membrane attachment to the pain.

One may become attached to racial discrimination, having a handicap, being raised poor, alcoholic parents – you name it. Their constant litany is 100 reasons why life isn’t working for them. Sounds crazy and it is indeed the very definition of crazy, but that is your task.

During Shani bhukti one must by sheer force of will (Ravi) pry oneself away from the self-replicating narratives (bhava-3) of social invalidation (weak Surya) and depression.

There are dozens of modern non-invasive technologies that can help alleviate anxiety and depression. Bach Flower Remedies are college exam favorites. However, none of these remedies will be in the least effective if the person is ego-attached to negative validation that is granted to one who attaches to the victim narrative.

And BTW this is Typically, a family affair because Ravi indicates the father. Therefore, psychically one is attempting, probably with pure intention, to validate the father's failures and his low self esteem resulting from lack of recognized public standing. It is not necessary to repeat the father's failures in order to show him respect and gratitude for having raised you.

You have the meditation skills to do this work. It is WORK. However, it will succeed due to your overall high levels of rational intelligence. Quitting addiction to depression is like quitting addiction to any drug.

Depressive narratives put the brain into a comfortably miserable state by running a familiar loop of repeating sad ideas related to disappointment, loss, grief, and sorrow. One will be permitted to keep running that loop if one continually asserts the right (Ravi) to run than loop ... but the results will be very predictabler.


yuti [Surya-Mesha-uchcha]

yuti [Shukra-yuti-Rahu]

[3 publication, announcement, data]

  • In the early decades of the 20th century, Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 neurologist Sigmund Freud was a highly respected physiological neurologist working within the emerging new (Mesha) therapeutic field of psychiatry [Asvini medicine] . SSF topical specialization was the role of Willpower (Surya, ego). As a university professor and European regional expert on nervous disorders, the charismatic [uchcha-Surya-karmesha] d. Freud was widely admired as a pioneering [Mesha] explorer of the subconscious mind (Shukra activates 12 subconscious) . Yet, behind the glow of Freud's brilliant discoveries lurked a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting [Rahu] life fraught with culturally forbidden incestuous relationships [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [3, wife's sister]. A great appreciator of women, Freud conducted a decades-long sexual relationship with his wife's younger sister. SSF was reputed to have enjoyed the secret pleasures of other ladies as well. Freud's own father [Surya] married three times, and little Sigismund was born to his father's youthful third wife. Through all of the potential iniquity, SSF maintained high professional dignity due to uchcha-Surya-karmesha. His falsified notebook data [Rahu-3] was not revealed until after his death.

QUOTATION Das/ Behari WRT Surya in bhava-3

" ...generally destroys harmony with ones siblings.

This is because you have universal interests, and cannot therefore focus on the things your brothers and sisters, while you matured, focused on.

You have wider vision .

  • This may cause you to leave the nest you grew up with, in terms of consciousness.

  • This Sun also gives you diligence, perseverance, forbearance, culture, perfection, etc.

You like cultured partners, but this Sun gives distaste for sex in general.

  • You are fond of high-minded associations, or the rich.

  • ... makes you strong and glorious.

  • You suffer at the hands of your equals, brothers or associates.

  • The elder brother or sister may shine in some way if there is one.

You may go on holy pilgrimage.

  • You tend to prevail when confronted.

  • This Sun is a good one, making you healthy, wealthy and wise.

It adds to being liked by others, kind, modest and a leader.

... causes trouble to the brothers and sisters, or there are none, especially elder brothers may be lacking.

It adds to being liked and good looking, and a conqueror.

  • It also helps with success in litigation, intelligence, wealth, fame, eloquence and sickness."
