appreciation of sacred doctrine

preference for humanistic, university-global, philosophical relationships

[9-philanthropy, patronage, credenda]

Shukra in expansive Guru's natural sthāna appreciates the liturgical and literary expressions of ceremonial religion, public priesthood, and wisdom-teachings.

Often, aspecial valuation for religious art.

Sweet-seeking Shukra delights in the glamorous world of high temple discourse and public worship, such as

  • consecrations
  • weddings
  • religious vows
  • university investiture
  • graduations

sanctification of state power such as

  • swearing-in vows for investiture of public office.

Enjoys wisdom, world travel, philosophical relationships

Luxurious pleasures via

scholarship, holy scripture and liturgies, religious art and music, spiritual discussions, global travel for education, university and temple culture, divine knowledge

Appreciates the value of religion as a development of culture

Adores the most beautifully decorated sacred space and temple costumes, sacred art and sacred music , the fragrance of billowing incense, the flash of bright silks in shows of Divine pomp and circumstance. The more elaborately designed the ritual, the better.

Enjoys relationship with professors, universities, travel guides, priests and temples.

  • Where will one meet the marriage-partner?

  • In the university or temple, during a liturgy or high ceremony, or during world travels.

dhana-karaka Shukra in a svabhava of Guru can produce a great deal of wealth, but often this wealth is not of the material variety.

Meta-conceptual Brihaspati is not a friend of materialistic, earthly, sensual Shukra; and Professor Guru will assert His right to bring the blessings of philosophy, wisdom, and world travel to the native in lieu of properties, bank accounts, or herds of cattle.

Typically, the native is well-traveled, well-educated, and well-situated in life with a special penchant for the artistic and financial cultures of universities and temples.

If Shukra is the lagnesha, one may be an internationalized teacher or spiritual guide living on rather little income but enjoying harmonious company of philosophical students.


Thanjavur Maratha, published 1874

printed by Rare Book Society of India

Daityaguru Shukra, the Guru of the Asura, is generally not a welcome guest in Bhava-9.

Sukha-graha in a bhagya bhava can bring fortune on a material level, and Shukra blesses the native with sensual pleasure in ceremonial religion.

Typically, shukra-9 is raised in a religious tradition which celebrates the feminine, indulges in beautifully crafted ritual implements, gorgeous art and costume, transcendently delicious incense etc.

The five-senses experience in the world of high dharma is lovely indeed --and the better disposed is Shukra, the richer is Shukra-9's sense of pleasure in the temple.

However, Guru's proper business is universal; Shukra's personal attachment to pleasure tends to prevent Guru's wisdom from manifesting in the lovely but earth-bound sacred grounds.

Typical issues include

  • the sensualization of religion (when Shukra is ill-disposed, may result in abuses of sensual pleasuring within the temple )

  • inattention to teachings due to distraction by beautiful costume, music, and scents

  • sensually indulgent or romantic involvement with the guru

  • and a handsome, sweets-loving (including liquid sweets) perhaps promiscuous father whose sensual nature does not uphold the higher principles of philosophical teachings to his children.

When Shukra occupies a rashi of sexual Budha, can suggest a father's illicit dalliance with Feminine Nativities. Alcoholism or drug addiction in the father or guru, particularly if Shukra is rogesha-6 + randhresha-8 , or ruler-of-12 r.

Spends mani-money [Shukra] on

  • religious objects (statuary, paintings of religious scenes, beautiful editions of sacred scripture)

  • world travel (including all the accouterments such as luggage)

  • university cultural items (books, pens, instructional media, ceremonial robes)

  • relationships and actions which further one's relationship to priests, professors, and preachers, esp. with women of university or temple quality

Accumulated Treasury from:

  • university teaching and temple preaching

  • the father and father-figures

  • knowledge of religious scripture, priestly culture, and belief systems

Naturally, these traits are modified when additional graha occupy bhava-9 .


Selecting a gift for the native with Shukra-9?

  • These folk enjoy pleasures of philosophical teaching and sacred culture.

Accouterments of the philosophical life, such as gracious appointments for the priestly or professorial office or other luxurious items of art and music which enhance the refinement of one's wisdom teaching, will be much appreciated gifts.

Delights in the aesthetics of priestly ritual - but unless Budha is strong in radix, this native might not grasp the power or the deeper meanings behind the rituals.

Likes the company of moral philosophers and spiritual teachers .\

Prefers The social and cultural environment of universities, temples, and the international sangha.

  • mani-money may flow from religious temple or university sources (including by donations for sacred teachings); from the third marriage; directly from the father

The feminine nativity admits a limited number of feminine-friends when Shukra occupies bhava-9.

The lady friends are financially privileged, world-traveled, highly educated, and expert on humanistic or philosophical subjects.

They are or would be qualified to be professors and priests.

The female counts among her closest lady friends and sisters, not a few scholarly nuns and religious philosophers.

Fpr amy gender, sensual Shukra seeks delicious experiences tending to overwhelm expressions of piety, rather it expresses an attraction to the artistic and musical culture of religious social life; a love of universall philosophy and higher education. It is not a devotional position but rather glamorous and sensual, with a rich appreciation of sacred art.

If Shukra is strong * especially in a rashi of Budha * one supports love of art with the professional knowledge of world religious art and music cultures.

Luxurious wealth of religion and wisdom-teachings. Attracted to priest-craft, sacred teachings, guru figures and their worldview; loves the aesthetic ambience of the temple or sthāna of worship, sacred spaces for public ceremony, and the pomp and circumstance of the taking of ritual vows.

Both genders may be attracted to university teaching or scholarly administration (in businesslike rashi e.g. Mithuna or Kanya; also both genders may enjoy world travel, and international education systems (temple network, university network).

Enjoys international culture.


UNESCO World Heritage: Mahabodhi Temple Complex

Bodh Gaya, naepal

Career during Vimshottari Dasha periods of a graha located in bhava-9 .

Ggraha located in dharmasthāna-9 may confer expansion of humanistic perspective, global awareness, and contact with wisdom-figures.

Nevertheless, the 10th-from-9 = bhava-6 indicating disharmony and ailment.

As a result, there may be a temporary experience of conflict in leadership roles, ailments related to job performance, unfair agreements, loss of contract, dissolution of equity, accusations, pollution, or other 6-related phenomena according to the rashi of 6 and any graha residing in 6.

If the karmesha occupies rogasthāna-6, the professional life remains robust, but the career duties tend to emphasize injury, indebtedness, exploitation, or toxicity, inter alia.

Careers in labor relations, social work, medicine, and other ministries of service are usually enhanced by the 6th-angle because these professions are already dedicated to service of the hurting. Their collegial relationships may temporarily suffer somewhat but the overall mission is stable.

Aesthetic love and artistic appreciation for religious traditions , temples and practitioners.

  • May develop a special knowledge of and attraction to sacred art and music .

  • Charming philosopher-teacher, attractive in dress and appearance. Sensual, permissive teaching style. Prefers a gentle, relationship-cultivating method of ritual interaction with the spirits. Favored by women. Enjoys beautifying the temple.

  • As Guru of the Demons, shri Shukra = a mortal enemy of Brihaspati, who is the Guru of the Gods. Shukra in bhava-9 lacks respect for ritual hierarchies, grand ceremonies, patriarchal traditions or paternalistic religious behavior.

  • " Daitya-guru" influence may arise through the professors, religious teachers, or the father. They may be profligate or indulge in excessively sensual behavior such as drinking alcohol (Shukra = sugar) or too much enjoyment of women. Favors happiness through religious cultures which hold female sexuality and sensual love in high regard.


Wat Rong Kuhn Buddhist temple

Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand

Environment of 9, where ones meets feminine partners

  • university groups
  • international affairs
  • philosophy
  • world travel
  • priesthood, professorship
  • scholarship, punditry
  • teaching-preaching
  • scriptural study
  • sacred place, house of worship
Shukra Angles additional characteristics

Shukra in 9th = 11th from 11th = sangha (sangiti, the reciters) faith community = "the network of networks".

The agent of introduction for the couple = likely to be a friend of a friend = 11th-from-11th

This match-making agent = a philosophically expansive [Guru] person often with a strong sense of religious-cultural art and design. The match-making is often inadvertent. The ostensible reason for the meeting might be rather mundane, for example a motive can be the publishing of philosophical-religious or scholarly texts or making travel plans to visit a sacred place.

Masculine or feminine, the partners in the pairing [Shukra] meet each other in context of

  • university studies and scholarship, especially in sacred scripture or philosophy

  • college and collegial activities, such as taking classes or attending lectures

  • indoctrination, learning the higher principles and theories

  • proselytizing, preaching

  • humanistic world-travel such as study-abroad, educational tour * especially of holy places or temple pilgrimage

  • environments supporting global humanism, such as conferences and seminars on topics of global importance (not local or parochial interests, must have international and optimistic Guru viewpoint)

Also 9th = 5th-from-5th, including political, dramatic, regal, celebrity, entertainment environments - particularly with a global context

In the nativity of a husband

Often, ahusband meets the life-partner [Shukra] in a setting characterized as doctrinal, theoretical, ideological, or philosophical. The setting may be in a temple, university, or environment of global humanism. One in a husband role aesthetically prefers [Shukra] the characteristics of 9 and 9th-from to be displayed by those in the wifely-companion. The life-partner Generally, is interested in philosophical principles and matters of dharma (theories of reality). The wifely-companion either has or aspires to the rarified theoretical discourses of university perspective and global worldview.

One in the husband-role may be attracted to feminine partners who are aware of divinity (literally di-ven the "coming out" of the spirit into the human world). Her principled ideological, theoretical or philosophical commitments are attractive to him, and her wise, inclusive, generous but balanced understanding doctrine may form the basis of their marriage.

A husband with Shukra-9 often cherishes children (9) so that life-partners who are concerned with the divinity and dharma-dogma education of children may seem attractive to the husband-role player.

5th from 5th = dharmasthāna can represent doctrinal drama among the debaters of high religion (in the non-ritual priestly or doctoral realm of divine thought) as well as global humanism on the secular stage.

  • in 1912 during a Rahu-Mangala bhukti where Mangala activates 7th-navamsha, Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini met his wife Ida Dasler at a spirited public debate on religion, where at the beginning of the Italian Fascist movement Mussolini took an oppositional stance against the punditry of a group of Christian scholars.
