Shukra represents women in non-caretaking roles as they appear and function in one's own unfolding lifeplan.

[Feminine caretaker-nurturers such as mother-and-grandmother, nurses and preschool teachers, are found via Chandra's placement.]

  • Rahu-1 publisher and aviator. His future wife was working as a junior publicist (Shukra vikrama-pati-3) for a prestigious (5) fashion design (Shukra-5, Shukra vidya-pati-5 from Chandra) corporation (Shukra karmesha-10 from Simha-lagna and Chandra). The relationship began at "Anthony's party." JFK Jr's best friend = his maternal cousin Anthony.

The younger sister's eldest son = Mesha + 5 = Rahu-simha-lagna (who was actually Simha a royal prince). From Rahu lagna (= JFK's cousin Anthony) step 5 more for a"party" (5) especially one with a high prestige factor (5) and guests from the entertainment industry (5) in attendance.

meeting early in life, while being younger children or adolescents, is also a circumstance of partner-meeting via putrasthāna.

Shukra is best suited to relationships between equals. Yet Shukra-5 often replaces the natural bargaining, equity-seeking balancing of 7-peerage with the solipsistic, romantic, adoring, drama, entertainment, celebrity brilliance of 5-self.

going out to dinner to be served like royalty in a restaurant = an effect of bhava-5 = entertainment or amusement . (However, Meeting in the restaurant kitchen under circumstances of being workers such as wait-staff, cleaners, or cooks = bhava-6).
