Shukra attraction * akarshana * to unbalanced situations and their remedies

takes pleasure in ministries of service

enjoys conflict and accusation

balancer, counselor, and adviser in situations of war, exploitation, disease-discomfort, and abuse

self-medication; behavioral and substance addictions

preference for medicating, argumentative, exploitive relationships

Enjoys the workplace, ministries of service, and codependent helping relationships

  • Luxurious pleasures via logical, critical argumentation
  • gracious handling of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy conditions

Characteristically attempts to rebalance a plethora of ungracious, unpleasant, unhealthy, or unfair situations (6) via a behavior of arranging and re-arranging, explaining and re-explaining.

Shukra-6 typically cannot resolve the pre-incarnationally planned imbalance-seeking-a-remedy of social, familial, marital-sexual, financial, mental, physical-health, and even spiritual relationships in the present lifetime.

Rather, Shukra-6 tries to beautify, smooth, decorate, ornament, and impose a cosmetically attractive appearance of superficial harmony upon the underlying ailments.

Attraction to physicians, medical environments, and medical treatments.

The pleasant and diplomatic style of Shukra-6 may temporarily convince others that the underlying animosity, addiction, poverty, servitude, or disease has been repaired, but lacking the fundamental and inescapable requirement that graha in 6 must choose to "serve or suffer" Shukra-6 with its natural taste for pleasures tends very much to suffer.

Naturally other graha yuti Shukra may alter this predisposition.

May resort to Drug and Pleasure addictions to various substances and behaviors as an available method to temporarily resolve the discomfort of acute disagreement.

Shukra-6 experiences attraction * akarshana * to behaviors of personal and professional cheating in regard to promises and vows, contract breaking, accusative litigation, and illegal business practices particularly those of an exploitive nature and particularly involving women and sense pleasures.

Likes to consume sugars but overindulgence may signify kidney weakness such as diabetes or pancreatic ailments.

For the wise ones who know the serve or suffer rule for graha in bhava-6, favorable service professions may include criminal litigation attorney defending women; social workers specializing in poverty syndromes involving marital violence, addiction and crime; or physicians who specialize in gynecology, nephrology, epidemiology of drug addiction, cosmetic surgery for crime victims, or any of the re-balancing modalities of physical medicine.

For masculine nativities, Shukra = kalatrakaraka

  • imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and disagreement via agency of Feminine Nativities. Surrounded by unmarried womenfolk (6) one may struggle to maintain the marriage contract. Special attraction to female servants and employees.

  • Wife hails from the service class. In the best outcome, she may be a medical professional, pharmacist-medicinary, medical social-worker, war chaplain, or other service ministry provider. Wife tends to assume a servile role within the marriage, and is content to serve so long as sensual pleasure, food, wealth etc. are provided.

Wife tends to develop health imbalance-seeking-a-remedy followed by drug issues. Naturally other graha yuti Shukra will alter this predisposition.

Disloyalty toward Laborers and Servants

  • General Electric 1935-2020 CEO Jack Welch [commercial-managing Hasta-3] Known as a management guru [Hasta-3] JFW enjoyed a Narcissistic specialization in the predatory art of Hostile Takeover. This legally sanctioned financial crime [nīcha- Shukra-6 parivartamsha Budha-7] was defended by lan army [6]of corporate attorneys. JFW's regime was defined by ternminations without cause and broken contracts worldwide. Welch trained a generation of managers to invade GE's foreign acquisitions, fire the employees, then sell the remaining assets [nicha-Shukra rules 2-assets]. Workers young and old were were axed without remorse. For dishonoring the loyalty of dedicated workers worldwide, Welch gained an opulent luxury lifestyle and banked millions.

For both masculine nativities and feminine nativities

  • One feels as especial attraction toward women whose life history has produced a narrative of sensual indulgence combined with suspicious distrust and dissatisfaction regarding partnership status. Often, her parents lived in chronic disagreement masked by a face-saving facade of social harmony.

  • Women in the life environment may be out of balance generally. Sisters, aunts, cousin-sisters, female friends of sisterly nature, and female co-workers may embroider a culture of superficial harmony which only cosmetically covers underlying marriage and health disorders.

  • Barring correction by healthier drishti or yuti intelligent companion graha, there is a tendency toward a pattern of underlying dishonesty and denial within relationships, and Typically, alcoholism is widespread throughout the women in the family, friends, and co-workers.

  • Tendency to enter into exploitive, unjust, distrusting relationships both personal and professional, then apply various devices both social and chemical to attempt to rectify the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

  • Associated with drug use, unbalanced "bending over backward" relationships with persons from lower social rank, pleasure from the company of servants, and a remarkable diplomatic ability to maintain relationships with illicit, enslaving, unjust, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, toxic, promise-breaking, traitorous,

Sensual, shared delights from servants, service animals, physicians and medical treatments

Appreciates the value [Shukra] of the mother's relatives = 3rd-from-4. financially privileged, financier, or pleasure-seeking maternal uncle.

Partnerships are based in service work. Male meets the wife in the workplace, medical clinic, or service ministry. Opportunity for exploitive love relationships with servants and employees.Shukra in bhava-6 * Imbalanced, exploitive, blaming, accusing, often toxic, adversarial relationships with the women in one's life, with those persons male-or-female in the role of peer-partner, with those persons male-or-female who handle money and valuable objects.

Public Figure Examples


Kalatra-karaka Shukra indicates women who are not mother, not mother-figures. Chandra = mother-karaka; Shukra are those situated in roles of partner-mate, sister-cousin, female neighbor or coworker.

in a husbandly nativity, the wife becomes a focus of conflict or the wifely-figure is beset by illness. For the wifely-companion herself, the terms of the marriage contract (Shukra promise, contract) may be rife with disagreement even if the peer-partner is a pleasant person.

Feminine-figures, treasurers, collectors, pleasure-providers who would be expected to behave in a trustworthy fashion such as bankers, vintners, food hoarders, storage vendors, peers and partners of any-gender betray the trust. Instead they may become devious exploiters, polluted in their actions, and possibly criminal in their behavior.

Corrupt or unbalanced counsel from peer-female, wife, sister, maternal aunt or paternal aunt, female counterpart, women in professional advice-giving roles. Shukra activates conditions of the contract thus Shukra does not signify mother nor grandmother. Mothers are the unconditional-lover givers of Chandra.

Positive implications: the peer-partner may serve as a health-care worker, criminal attorney or social worker. The peer-female such as sister-aunt-cousin or schoolmate, neighbor, co-worker may be dedicated to a ministry of servicer.

[Shukra in bhava-6] * pleasure in service; addictions -

Shukra-6 is Typically, an indicator of some type of sensual addiction.

Conditions of behavioral addiction are pleasurable but often expensive. The behavior potentially involves toxic substances such as alcohol, tobacco, opium, et-cetera; or perhaps an unbalanced sensual relationships with servants, underclass persons, or animals.

Sister, aunt, peer-female may identify as a victim, sister may experience ailment, broken trust, exploitation, or peer-partner in servitude.

For the husband, the first wife may feature attachment to the narrative of the victim-personality. Peer females in the life-script tend to be accusing, blaming, or made toxic via accusation or addiction.

GAINS and LOSSES from DIVORCE = depends on 11th-from-6 (bandhusthāna) + strong forces draining conflict out of 6 (sukhagraha in 5)

financial well-being

  • Shukra-6 Has financially privileged enemies.

  • Material wealth of the mother's relatives

  • Saved wealth from sale (3) of lands (4) and vehicles (4)

  • Children (5) have nice savings hoard (2).

  • 6 = 11th-from-8th. Shukra in 6 brings profit from mysterious, apocryphal, hidden sources. One may be paid illicitly.

Typically Shukra-6 indicates a fairly low accumulation of material wealth since Shukra the Arranger who regulates the material-spiritual proportions is characteristically out of balance. The agency of low material accumulation is often a preference from immediate pleasure versus longer term savings behaviors.

Spends money [Shukra] on:

  • luxuries, sweet drugs especially alcohol

  • medicines for sexually transmitted or sugar-related illness, cosmetic treatments, physicians' fees

  • accusations, litigation, breaking contracts, and attorneys' fees

  • payment for services of criminals

  • payment for services of sthāna -servants and animals,

  • payments made to persons of lower status or social genre

exploitive relationships, particularly but not exclusively with women

  • pleasure relationships with employees, potential for prostitution

Tendency toward imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in the spending habits:

  • medical care especially drugs

  • servants and care services

  • ministries of service to the victim-minded, habitually poor and disenfranchised

  • animals = wild and domestic

Shukra in 6 indicates a person who spends luxuriously but disproportionately, on animals and servants - often with on sthāna -pets, veterinary bills, rescue animals, keeping horses et-cetera.

Luxurious pleasures via service.

Pet Animals, Wild Animals

Sensitive to welfare of all animals wild and tame. Loves pet animals and is loved by them in return.

May have a better experience of relationship with animals than with humans.

Marriage= Shukra in bhava-6

Not a helpful position for marriage, because the marriage-karaka Shukra enters the sthāna of the dissolution of agreements. Male tendency toward dalliance with female underlings. Similar to [nīcha] Shukra-Kanya. Feminine Nativities may have affectionate relationship with servants.

One may experience exploitation in the marriage of feel victimized. The couple habitually enter into arguments. Marriage alliance may seem like a state of perpetual conflict in which one can never win and may only accede to the reality of it.

Shukra in bhava-6 reduces the natural harmony in marriage, and contributes to argumentative, litigious, distrusting, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, or addictive behaviors.

Tastes, preferences, Gifts

Selecting a gift for the native with Shukra in 6?

These folk enjoy pleasures of toxins-medicines, clear and detailed argumentation, servitude.

Accouterments of the imbalance-loving life, such as gracious appointments for the medicine kit or other luxurious items of art and music which enhance the refinement of one's understanding of disagreement, disability, or disease, will be much appreciated gifts.

Consider gifting a book on strategies for litigation , medical treatment manuals or tickets to a medical practice conference, care of animals, or practical tools for clinical service in any of the helping professions.

victimization [being eaten]

When Shukra is very poorly disposed vis--vis both kundali indriya-lagna and Chandra lagna, in 6 can indicate that the native is a victim of sex abuse or sexual excess, involvement in sex trafficking, prostitution, drug/alcohol addict, or medical ailment related to sugar (diabetes).

In the nativity of a husbandly-companion

Often, a husband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as a ministry of service offered to those in need, a laboring workplace, a place of servitude or unfair employment, a location for remedies and drugs, a loan-making environment, a place of litigation, accusations or complaints, a place of pollution or crime, or a medical clinic (not a hospitalagnesha-1 2 but rather an ambulatory clinic-6).

The life-partner's identification with the working classes is an important value [Shukra] for the husband. The life-partner's ability to work in sustained conflict situations may form the basis of the marriage.

The husband nativity may be attracted to life-partners who perform ministries of service particularly in medicine or military or criminal justice. The life partner may be born into the service classes such as slavesor historic service castes.

Shukra-6 benefits from a restraining drishti of Shani , but Shukra-6 is overly energized by influence of Mangala or Surya.

Should Shukra-6 be overheated by Ravi or Kuja, the wife may be frequently in the sights of accusers or litigators.

Influence of Shani tends to grant social pragmatism: she may know the :serve or suffer" rule [Shani] well enough to choose the service-ministry option. The wife may manage social conflict via her profession. The key word here is manage, not resolve. Graha in 6 manifest conflicts embedded in the subconscious during parallel life events, and these conflicts will replay until the native appreciates the essential value [Shukra] of service in human life.

  • Wife = deeply identified with the relationships that manigest in context of her ministry of service, with the human underclass or animals, or with toxic environmental conditions of disease-pollution

For the male, positive influence of Shani grants him affinity for professionalization in medicine, law, or social welfare agencies. Negative overheating by Kuja or Ravi, or criminalization via Rahu, may suggest that he still lacks consciousness needed to accept unbalanced conditions as essential venues of pre-incarnationally planned expression, and hje could retreat into addictions to compensate for his wife's involvement in her workplace service duties.

Shukra represents the wife for a man, while Guru and Shani represent the husband for a woman. In a husbandly nativity, the wife shares one's same ministry of service Or she works as a servant . One may be also Addicted to Work.

In a masculine nativity, the wife or the beautiful love-partner (who need not be a woman, but must be perceived as beautiful) will hail from the underclass, working class, or the service-ministry class.

In a feminine nativity

The feminine-figure experiences considerable inner argumentation regarding her attractiveness, and may resort to exploitive behaviors in order to prove her beauty.

Prone to sexually-transmitted illness. Luxurious pleasures via conflict and argument. Attraction to those who produce and contain conflict (police, physician, attorney, etc.)

Cycle of attraction to partners who are prone to conflict, then breakdown of the partnership, then re-attraction to the same argument with a new partner. Often multiple marriages; often much worsened by drug-alcohol issues.

As always, much depends on Shukra's domains and tenants.

Characteristics of the Environment where husband meets the wife(s):

  • service ministry

  • workplace, especially employer-employee relations

  • human resources administration

  • arguments and litigation

  • military

  • medicine * especially clinical

  • social work; pastoral care

  • labor, servitude and slavery

  • poverty situations

  • auspice of mother's relatives, especially mother's siblings

In the workplace , often in the role of servant, or employee, or physician - in the medical clinic or drug setting.

  • cinematic animator Walt Disney - who was addicted to cigarettes and died prematurely of lung cancer -- met his wife Lilly Disney when she worked as an employee (6) secretary and ink-painter in his California start-up company workplace .

Although a wife's nativity generally shows the character of her husband via Guru, if Guru is involved with Shukra via rulership or drishti then Shukra may also influence her husbands.

Recently this couple presented: she with Shukra-6 and he with Shukra-7. The couple met at the"rehearsal dinner" preceding the wedding of mutual friends, some forty years ago.

  • For the female, the party was an environment signifying Service to her soon-to-be-wedded friends. A characteristically Helpful person, she had served to plan the wedding; cleaned, cooked and sewed in service.

  • For the Shukra-7 male, the dinner was a confirmation of his business relationship with the groom. The party conversation centered on the female's business dealings (7) in commodities brokerage (7) and happy gossip about the relationships (7) between everyone in the room. The male with Shukra-7 needed a wheeler-dealer wife and he was enchanted to have found one.

  • It was interesting to see how exactly the same venue functioned as a Shukra-marriage meeting place for both a Shukra-6 and a Shukra-7 native.

Concepts of debt and repayment (old model from Kali Yuga)

When Shukra occupies the maha-dushtamsha, considerable Akashic memory patterning regarding redemption, reimbursement, or repayment = on schedule in regard to alliance-agreement, diplomatic, and contract-making activities.

Partnerships both personal and professional tend to be exploitive.

Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of brokering, negotiating, marrying, and chronically-rebalancing environments in order to burn off the pre-incarnationally planned ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this legalistic business of finding and keeping agreement with others.

A broken yoke

In matters of 6, particularly when 6 is inhabited by graha, the native does most of the work in partnerships. The Other has a pre-incarnationally planned script to run away with most of the energy of what should be (according to social dicta) jointly agreed contracts.

One-way street

Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet partner-confirmation and social-approval of the true importance of services (6) rendered will rarely flow back in.

Lower expectations = better health

As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), disputes, treachery, broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's own spouse * especially wife for husbandly-nativities * any sort of money * especially collections of objects such as animal herds, art collections, stored food, bank accounts; and enjoyment of luxuries in life.

Even if the entitlement or acquisition levels are materially quite high, matters of delicious food and drink, artistic balance, design, beautification, and ornaments become problematic, as the native gives more than one receives .

One's own marital environment is also affected by the script. Exploitation and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy = effected by partners who are mentally, physically, socially, or financially imbalanced.

The key to mental-social (Budha-6-Shukra) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for emotional investment from the partners, whether on the job or at home.

No matter how pleasantly accommodating [Shukra] beautiful or financially privileged [Shukra] or artistically talented [Shukra] one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's deal-making, negotiating diplomacy are not intended to acknowledge the gift.

Bhava-6 is a toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized and often warlike environment full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.

Realistic Expectations

it is unrealistic to expect validation 7 from the behaviors produced by karaka-graha in 6

Naturally, when Shukra the balancer is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the behavior of the life-partner, as well as a rather chronic dickering or wheeler-dealer role within any paired union. For a man the homework-problem is most acute WRT his wife and for a woman the problem is most acute re; her female peers.

It makes sense to live in a way that does not require complex marital communications, that does not build unsustainable expectations of joint agreements and that self-honors one's extensive but unacknowledged behavior of making gracious social arrangements which benefit others far more than oneself.

It is the nature of the maha-dushtamsha that for the native with harmonious Shukra in 6, the more one gives, the more 'broken others' will take. There is no opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory interpersonal or financial contracts.

Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the yuvati-pati-7 is strong. However, the marriage and life-union relationships as well as most pleasure-giving arrangements are corrupted in this life.

Promises especially promises related to money are rarely fulfilled as expected.

For a purpose!

masculine nativity

  • polarizing catalysis of argumentative criticism regarding the women in one's life,

  • particularly affects the first wife, but also indicates a relationship imbalance-seeking-a-remedy pattern which affects all subsequent marriages

  • Addiction to toxic [6] sweets [Shukra]

Addictions, often leading to health imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and economically motivated polarizing catalysis due to 11th"income" 6th from Shukra. Alcoholism. Sugar malfunctions, such as diabetes. Kidney, pancreatic and endocrine illness.

Broadly, unexpressed arguments in the mental and astral bodies may percolate down into the gross realm of The earthen body . When materially manifest, unresolved inner argumentation may erupt into illnesses (6) of the paired organs [Shukra] throughout the body.

  • Chronic delight in arguments regarding contracted relationships, negotiated agreements, marital alliance

  • victimization [being eaten] through beautiful women, love-making, sensual pleasures, and drugs.

Both genders experience attraction to problematic, argumentative women.

  • The rashi will tell which pleasure practices become addictive. Loss of balance through excessive pleasures.

  • Less damaging in rashi of Budha, where the pleasures are more mentalized.

  • More damaging in uttama or svakshetra state, where the pleasures are tactile and physically sensual.

bhava-6 as 3rd-from-4th = siblings of the mother.

Shukra in 6 = mother's sisters,

  • Mother's sisters = fairly financially privileged [Shukra].

QUOTATION Das / Behari comments on Shukra-6

" Venus creates problems when placed in the Sixth.

Although under its influence you learn to unfold your capacities by associating with different types of people, these associations create social and personal difficulties for you.

  • Often marital life may be in jeopardy,

  • you become involved in bad business and debt,

  • and at times suffer from genital related diseases.

  • You have little control over expenditures.

You learn spiritual lessons with great difficulty but develops a sense of detachment after much physical, financial and moral suffering.

  • You belong to a superior race; progeny; fall of enemies, sons and grandsons, wasteful expenditure, bad decisions and sick, noble son.

  • Mother's sisters are two or three and they are well-off.

Spouses do not desire you and you have no desire for them;


You have many strong and powerful enemies; excessive expenditures, leading to poverty and debt. Much mental torture.

  • No gain or success in business in spite of your great efforts and industry - rather you may make a mess of it .

  • Trouble, little gain or comfort through preceptor or parents; nor do you gain anything through them.

You have to face endless invincible enemies;

constant liquidation of financial wealth; unsuccessful in the best organized trade.

  • Foolish and sick.

  • Many occasions of grief and condemnation.

  • You are poor, and may have unlawful relations with young spouses.

Suffers through ailments. Vain, dull, penniless, timid, bad company, quarrelsome, disrespect for father, trouble through all sources.

Fond of dance-music, victor and destroyer. Unpopular. You may come from a high family, learned, discreet and well-educated."
