Enjoys movement, sport, military advance, competitive relationships

  • Luxurious pleasures via physical appearance, cult of personality

  • appreciates the value of muscular balance and harmonious genetics

Attractive physique

athletic and individualized relationships

lavish lifestyles

Luxurious pleasures via Physical Movement + Fleshly Vitality

usually, financial well-being attends this attractive personality

A benefic is lagna always helps the social identity.

One may be perceived as physically attractive due to balanced features.

  • Sensual, artistic nature.

  • gifted in finance, beauty, ornamentation, music,

  • sensual pleasures according to the bhava ruled by Bhrigu

  • attracts attention very easily

Often a dancer, actor, balladeer, fashion model, musician, athlete, politician, or otherwise successful in public life via the sweetly handsome bodily appearance.

One relishes the sensual delights of art, music, fine foods and scents. Access to the treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge.

Identified with beautification, design and re-design, elegance, visual attraction, equity, and balance

  • POTUS-pair-36 Wildflowers 1912-2007 Ladybird Johnson [Shukra-1 parivartamsha Shani-5] During her tenure as POTUS-pair-36, LJ inspired thousands of citizens to volunteer their time [Shani] in beautification [Shukra] and clean-up of the national roadway corridors. Local folk spread seeds for millions of wildflowers to bloom near the roadside, removed unsightly billboards, and carried out trash. Claudia Taylor Johnson's initiative brought tranquility and visual pleasure to a previously jarring and depressing environment. It remains the high standard by which similar first-lady projects are measured.

Shukra in lagna provides pleasure in one's own body, self-delighted by one's own appearance, attracted to oneself, likes one's own social personality identity.

Enjoys the sweetness of easy win in competitions and fights.

Appreciates the occasion of birthr.


In a masculine nativity, the wifely-companion plays a key role in shaping the identity

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump [protective-nationalistic Punarvasu-4] [vargottamsha] [Shukra-yuti-Shani]

    DJT's three marriage partners have all been key assets in his image-build. Their presence shaped his identity, particularly at social-networking events [11] where they smoothed [Shukra] his economic connections. For Karkata nativities, Shukra rules 11-profts.

  • Among the Believers 1932-2018 culturalist V.S. Naipaul [imaginative-charitable Arudra-4] [navamsha Shukra-Meena-uchcha] [Atmakaraka] [Shukra-yuti-Mangala] married his editor, the estimable Pat Hale. Although he collected the prizes, their work was entirely collaborative. Her editing shaped the flow of his narratives into a pleasing, admired literary style. His [Arudra-4-Shukra] [navamsha Shukra-Meena-uchcha] shows his wildness, temper-tantrums, and excess infideltity. However, [fantasizing-charitable Arudra-4] becomes Shukra-Meena-navamsha, indicating the beautifully artistic style of his first wife.

Environment to meet wife-1

= focus on one's own identity (1) one's own appearance (1) one's own attractiveness (1)

Spends money [Shukra] on

  • self, fleshly appearance, personal style

  • Actions and relationships which promote the bodily attractiveness + vitality

  • services of those who invigorate the body such as massage therapists and athletic trainers (particularly but not exclusively women)

  • services of those who beautify the individual's public aura such as personal stylists

Treasury from: music, beauty, fine arts,

Treasury from: charming personality and pleasing shell-appearance

Treasury from: gracious entertaining, personal warmth, vitality, and pleasant style

Shukra-1may be an inveterate deal-maker who naturally seeks mutual interest agreements with all partners.

Relationships are self-defining-ly important to Shukra-1, and their social behavior is often distinguished by an ability to maintain pleasant relationships via re-bargaining the terms of agreement.

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump despite their widely publicized divorce after his admitted infidelity, DJT successfully maintained an amicable personal and commercial bond with his ex-wife Ivana Zelnickova Trump. Even decades after their divorce, the ex-couple can be seen in pleasant conversation at public gatherings, have raised their mutual children jointly, and neither of their reputations was harmed by the stigma of divorce.

Shukra-1 whether masculine or feminine in gender orientation = especially attractive to women, who enjoy providing one with sensual experiences including valuable gifts

  • beauty, grace, arts of the mouth = song, history, languages due to Shukra natural lord of bhava-2

Luxurious assets resulting from The earthen body 's balanced musculature. Shukra-1 typically enjoys an attractive appearance.

  • Among his other fine qualities, George Washington was said to have been strikingly handsome; a lover of fine wines and dance parties. Also, GW was one of the most capitalized men of his generation [Shukra capital values].

Naturally, these traits are modified when additional graha occupy the lagna.

Attracted to one's own beauty. Can be a bit narcissistic, but in a sweet [Shukra] way.

  • A portion of one's money wealth is magnetically attracted into the life via wearing and producing aesthetically-designed costumes, styling and modeling a lovely body, and looking handsome in the flesh.

Likes to be the center of attention, likes to be watched, photographed, admired, and talked about. Natural talent for balancing and re-balancing relationships and for creating an aesthetic environment around one's own person.

Other graha in bhava-1 can adjust the effects of sweets-seeking Shukra.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush= Shukra + [Shani-yuti-Budha] = appearance = a plain [Shani] but pleasant [Shukra] and talkative [Budha] fellow

Characteristics of the Environment where one may meets the life-partner(s)

  • athletic events, muscularity

  • competition, racing

  • movement

  • body-centered activity, fashion modeling, dance

  • birth, innovation, primacy

  • cult of personality

  • warriorship, hunting

  • blood, flesh

  • pursuit, conquest, domination

Often, a husband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as on his own initiative, via being attracted to her fleshly appearance. There may be no context of introduction by a third party.

For radical Makara - Draco lagna, Makara-Chandra-lagna, radical Kumbha indriya-lagna , and Kumbha-Chandra-lagna, Shukra is a Yogakaraka . Husband nativities with these prominent lagna may be blessed with a remarkably beneficial wifely-companion.

In both husbandly and wifely Nativities, if one lacks conscious awareness of one's spiritual true self, Shukra-1 can indicate narcissistic utility of flattery via the life-partners.

In this unfortunate case, one's definition of self is strictly social-material, and Shukra-1 * especially masculine * may select a spouse who provides an attractive and flattering mirror for the Self, rather than an equal participating partner.

Generally, Shukra-1 in a husbandly nativity shows a wife who strengthens the identity, is a peer advisor, and provides cherished companionship.

  • Future POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton [Kuja-yuti-Shukra]- [nīcha] 1 met his future wife POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton in a library (Shukra-1 rules 2) = Yale Law library. As a partnership, the Clinton marriage has been actively involved in finance, values narratives.
