The pleasure-entertainer.

Shukra-Simha = Aesthetic [Shukra] of charismatic celebrity roles [Simha].

The rashi of Shukra's planetary enemy the brilliant, all-eyes-upon-me, center-stage Surya = a difficult place for Professor Shukra's harmonious nature to flourish.

Likes theatrical celebrity ++ politicized financial relationships.

Prefers to be the fashionable center of attention in the relationship (and in the world overall).


Tends to take a dramatized, political approach toward marriage.

Prefers to hold court; expects a courtly love style of poetic, idealized romance.

If the teachings of Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu-7 are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) Usually, via constrictive drishti.

Possibility of wasteful expenditure on opulent marriage ceremonies.

In a masculine nativity, the lover-partner should have a charismatic, self-confident, theatrical, regal, glamorous or fashionable appearance and express personal entitlements.

Shukra-Singha, any bhava = self-concerned within relationships , "high-maintenance" , and rather dramatizing.

Shukra's cool sweet grace = " burned up" in hot, bright, dry Simha. One may However, be talented in the arts of publicity, marketing, and theatre.

  • If Shukra + Surya, attractive physically but not conventional cool beauty. Appearance is reddish and native may seem grandiose or self-centered within relationships. Tends to dramatize and centralize one's own contribution to partnership.

  • If Shukra+Surya+Budha = loves the sound of one's own voice [Shukra] and likely cannot stop talking.

Simha is a difficult placement for Shukra. the native attracts a self-centered and self-righteous partner. (Usually several of them.) At the same time, one 's capacity to share is compromised by Simha's inexorable focus on the Central Self.

Shukra is cool and feminine while Suraja is hot and masculine. Shukra means two-ness and Surya means one-ness. It is a difficult juxtaposition of tastes and goals.

Supportive placement for one married to a politician, atheatrical celebrity, or a master gamer. Otherwise, quite difficult.

the native seeks to partner [Shukra] with those who are politically or theatrically intelligent.

  • Moral Majority 1933-2007 Rev. Jerry Falwell [Shukra-yuti-Ketu] [4] JF maintained numerous discreet political relationships which allowed him to influence national elections and build a substantial personal estate

One appreciates the limelight, the righteousness, the applause - yet sharing, anecessary function of Shukra, is much impaired in the self-focused rashi of Simha.

Seeks partners who have association with entertainment, literature and theatre, the excitement and self-focus of political campaigns, and the attributes of royalty .

Seeks a partner who can bring more attention and applause upon oneself .

The ideal partner not only likes a great deal of brilliant, center-stage attention but also not surprisingly dislikes privacy does not meditate or withdraw into sanctuary, and prefers to live very much in the public eye (Simha = 6th from Meena, privacy).

Unfortunately the partner is often self-important to the exclusion of one's own interests , and Shukra-Simha = hoist by one's own petard

This Learning Pathway may involve a challenging tendency for the native to Idealize the partner , atrait of Simha which does not work well within relationships between normal humans [Shani normal].

Works well if the partner really is divine.

One may start out singing the praises of a nearly god-like Other, attributing artistic genius, political charisma or creative gamesmanship to the beloved,

  • only to find that one's efforts toward joint celebrity are going largely unrecognized , and the partner self-righteously appropriates all success.

The political or dramatic characteristics of the preferred partner might be situated in a very local context (Shukra in 4, the partner is self-important in primary schooling, or in the national defense)

  • or international (Shukra in 9, the partner is self-important in a university of temple setting) or in corporation or government leadership (10)

  • or in a bank (2) or in theatre itself (5)

  • Look to the bhava to define the environment in which the object of the partnering behaviors is expressing a certain glamour and center-stage intelligence.

Sensual pleasure experience created via matters of the heart, spine , heat, light, getting attention, applause, creativity, romantic love, regal entitlements.

Unless the native is born into royalty, one may feel discontent and always craving of attention. However, if the native is truly born into elite corps of solar celebrity, aloving bright heart and great enjoyment of pomp and ceremony.

Shukra-Simha possesses a beautiful torso, heart, spine.


Snow Leopard

Confidence and over-confidence

Shukra-Simha has a taste for spectacular, uniquely unusual, attention-getting relationships .

The lover-partner should have a confident, idealistic, bright, slightly theatrical character and a moderately handsome appearance.

The personality of the partner usually has memorable, amusing characteristics which connote a degree of celebrity (or notoriety)

Being noticed [Simha] and talked about by people watching their relationship is much enjoyed by the Shukra-Simha, who likes a center-stage social role and value the opportunity to display the partner's talents to others.


Combust - ashtangata, moudhya* Shukra -Simha tends to attract an over-confident Other whose glamour burns up following events in which the partner's apparent talents are tested against the challenge of shared material responsibility.

ashtangata Shukra-Simha may generate a partner who is charming in public but unfair in private.

The partnerships can suffer such a deficiency of equity (asta Shukra) that the Shukra-Simha native may decide to go it alone.

All genders appreciate and attract environments and relationships that feature

  • glamour, costume, prestige, romance

  • getting attention, being in the limelight, being a celebrity, being seen and heard

  • balanced spine (barring other factors)

  • self-confident, brilliant, sparkling, radiant, literary, theatrical

  • well-designed and balance-weighted symbols of power (relative to the local culture: these may be jewels, paintings and statuary, robes, furniture, lands, houses, vehicles, watercraft, teams of buffalo, or food-stores - but whatever the symbol, it should be the best and most splendid in the area.)
