Rahu ++ Maraka-Shukra

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud broke the taboo on suicide. He was suffering a painful, lingering death from laryngeal cancer. Maraka [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] allowed SSF to dematerialize the Earthen-body via physician-assisted suicide.

Amplified beauty, song, pleasure, and wealth

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor * [Rahu-Meena yuti Shukra-Meena-uchcha] [9, doctrine, patronage, philanthropy] [drishti into 3-business] ERT developed a famed collection of sparkling jewels, including the legendary Hope Diamond Shukra-ratna . Her luxury business sold perfumes and gems.

  • Genesis 1951- songwriter drummer Phil Collins + [Guru-yuti-Kuja] [7, relationships, mutuality]

  • Ring of Fire 1932-2003 rockabilly Johnny Cash was famed for his barrier-bending, taboo-twisting emotional songs and public statements [10] in particular, his long-running passionate extramarital affair with June Carter Cash- over-reachingly combined with his devoutly religious beliefs - became a tradmark of his celebrated public persona.

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley was a twinless twin. His twin brother Jesse was stillborn. EP's [Shukra-yuti-Rahu-yuti-Budha] vortex occurs in bhava-8, sudden identity changes. Folks often speculated that Elvis's dominant, otherworldly charisma was flowing through his ghostly twin.

Exotic [and perhaps notorious] qualities of the love partners

  • Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau * most well known for his positive moral impact upon the abolition of slavery ++ his gifted literary descriptions of the beauty of nature. HDT's personal relationships were unconventional. HDT never married. He was said to have had amorous relations with ladies in contemporary philosophical circles. Also, there is some implication from modern scholarly research that his romantic interests may have included some young gentlemen, which would be especially consistent with HDT's naturally unbridled Chandra in Arudra - Orion

Women-women-women + over-reaching excitement

[Rahu-yuti-Surya] + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [Aśvini] = women, medicine, taboo-breaking, relationships, power-writing

rulers of 4 + 7 + 12 amplified by ambitious-writer [Rahu in bhava-3]

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud = champion [Mesha] of previously undiscussable therapies in human sexuality, SSF working in the socially taboo specialization of women's health [Shukra-Aśvini] and private sexual experiences [Shukra rules 7-12]

  • SSF's scientific research occurred in unobserved private consultation rooms [Ketu-12] with no observers. The data was recorded in his scientific notebooks in the form of conversations between him and the mainly-female clients.
  • SSF claimed to have developed clinically tested [6] remedies for psychological disorders [6] These maladies had originated in culturally forbidden sexual behaviors, such as marital violence or incest [usually perpetrated by a male family member Rahu-yuti-Surya.
  • Shukra rules 7-alliances. Entitled SSF formed sexual relationships with his clients, friends, and his wife's sister. The supreme over-reaching entitlements of Rahu-yuti-Surya-uchcha supplied the confidence. Surya-Karmesha conferred the dignity of a university medical professor.
  • With an exaggerated Rahu-veneer of professionalism [10] SSF embarked into the pioneering [Mesha] and boundary-breaching [Rahu] supposedly data-driven science of medical psychotherapy.
  • Rahu typically has a great rise and a great fall. During his lifetime, SSF was hailed as a medical innovator [Aśvini] who courageously cracked-open the taboo on sexual honesty [Asvini-Shukra].
  • However, some of his patients complained that they never said what the notebooks claimed. Especially the supposed testimonies of patient relief from terrible anxieties and physical symptoms - was not correctly represented. [6, misrepresentation, lies]
  • Yet the chaos of WW-2 masked this issue, and SFF escaped accusation.
  • After SFF's decease, his loyal students continued to attempt to reproduce his curative methods [6, remedies for distress]. Yet they saw few scientifically valid results, even after decades of ongoing therapy. Practitioners sadly realized that SSF and his wifely co-writer had likely misrepresented most of the patient conversations in his notebooks. Although psychotherapeutic methods continued to evolve, SSF's once-celebrated theories fell into discredit and disuse.

Taste for unusual or forbidden elements in the aesthetics of art and design

trusts, contracts, promises, partnerships have high permission to experience connection; may be over-expanded past conventional limits.

In 11, marketplace profits

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor [uchcha-Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [9, doctrine, patronage, philanthropy] ERT's wonderful combination of stunning densified-body beauty [uchcha-Shukra] mixed with her socially risky romances-divorces [Rahu] For decades, ERT utterly fascinated the ticket-buying cinema-magazine audience, and sold millions of photographs. [drishti into Ketu-3, I'll be whoever you want me to be]

Exotic appetites of The earthen body = self-medication, extraordinary pleasures

One may take risks [Rahu] and break taboos [Rahu] in order to pursue relief from imbalance and luxurious pleasures

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] [6, dishonesy] expanded his marriage contract to include his wife's younger sister and other ladies. SFF avoided the strain of divorce by keeping his adventures reasonably private [Shukra rules-12 = Vimala Yoga, no harm from invisible pleasures]

  • Golden Girls 1934-2010 drama Rue McClanahan + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [11, community associations] RM endured a lifelong struggle with alcoholism. Nevertheless, her [Shani in Bhava-11] [drishti into 1-personal character] controlled the self-medication behaviors through individual discipline + work-ethic. RM five-decade career in performance arts and community activism.

And more women...

  • otem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud + [uchcha- Surya] [6, false claims, medical treatments] Typical of Rahu-6, SSF went where angels fear to tread. He targeted the taboo topic of sexual trauma, including incest, and the epidemic of women's so-called hysterical diseases [hyster = uterus] . [6, medical treatment] Dr. Freud also got sexually involved with his patients. For his willingness [uchcha-Surya-6] to crack open these previously verboten social behaviors, SSF is sometimes accorded the moniker Father of the Sexual Revolution in Euro-Western cultures.

Mix-master Rahu seeks pleasure through harmonious partnerships [Shukra] with a high content * extreme, exotic, Mixed.

  • Calif-Gov-pair 1955- broadcast journalist Maria O. Shriver married Arnold Schwarzenegger during her Shukra-Shukra svabhukti. [Shukra-yuti-Rahu-2] suggests a propensity to make contracts with those raised in an unfamiliar culture, speaking a different home language [2] or hailing from a different social register. Mangala-Kanya-12 rules both yuvati-sthāna adds a strong identity with the union and its connection to her storied Kennedy family [2] .

Short-term travel and touring

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley according to his biographers, EP preferred to be on the road with his music show [Shukra]. He felt restless at home. [Kuja-4]


Kalatra-Dosha Rahu-Mesha-Arya yuti [Shukra-Mesha] yuti [uchcha] Surya-10

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson had Shukra-yuti-Rahu + [uchcha- Surya-10]. A great exponent of the principles of 18th century European philosophical enlightenment and undeniably a brilliant man, TJ played an enormously influential role in shaping the government [10] of the newly conceived republic of the United States of America. In particular, TJ is associated with the glorious phrase "all men are created equal" . [Shukra, equality] Like most financially privileged colonial planters of his day, Jefferson owned dozens of slaves who serviced his elegant household, his horses, and his tobacco fields. After his wife Martha's death, TJ [age 44] started a long, passionate relationship with the younger half-sister of his wife Martha, a slave named Sally Hemings [age 14] who bore him six children. However, even on his deathbed, the extraordinary pride of [uchcha-Surya-yuti-Rahu-10] ruled the scene and Rahu-yuti-Shukra showed the advocate of equality to be an impostor [Rahu]: Jefferson did not emancipate Sally. His Rahu and his Shukra are less than one degree apart.

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud has a similar arrangement [Mesha-Shukra-yuti-Rahu] + [uchcha-Surya] [6] SSF's pioneering [Mesha] theories of forbidden sexual primacy upset the moral indoctrination of the social regulators. While SSF maintained a dignified professional facade [Surya karmesha] he was at the same time conducting extramarital relationships and dishonestly mistreating various womenfolk.

In a husbandly nativity, the wife-partner may be a being of amplified visual beauty, Yet, the marriage contract may be over-reached in order to expand the entitlements to female company.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy [uchcha-Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [12] . Lifepartner-1 was a strikingly attractive fashion model. During the marriage, both spouses became practicing alcoholics [uchcha-Shukra-12]. TK's boundary-breaching permission to explore the world of feminine offerings was well known. [Rahu intakes drishti of uchcha-Guru]

  • Despite his fervently conservative rhetoric [Rahu + Guru + Shukra-9] fellow politician Newt Gingrich was kno wn for his passionate [Rahu + Shukra + multiplier Guru] Affairs du Coeur.

Obsessive or exotic pleasuring behaviors

Rahu + [uchcha] Shukra provides extraordinarily high levels of permission [Rahu] to enjoy all pleasures to excess.

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson * Shukra -yuti-Rahu in camouflaged-bhava-8. LBJ was legally married to Ladybird Johnson. At a time when divorce was political suicide, LBJ's contemporaries reported no talk of divorce. Yet, LBJ's amorous adventures were legendary.

Boundary-bending, taboo-challenging, opportunistic events for women

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding was an outspoken supporter of women's suffrage. Despite bitter opposition, Harding championed the vote for women. The 19th Amendment became law in 1920, during WGH's administration.

  • Against staunch conservative resistance, POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding successfully promoted the passage of the Women's Suffrage 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920

  • POTUS-25 Gold Standard 1843-1901 William McKinley advocated diplomatic solutions to the Spanish-American war. However, WM served at the behest of iron-and-steel war-profiteers ++ the bloody, destructive battles they wanted to supply.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy TK sustained lifetime legal advocacy for disadvantaged groups in USA. In the early 1970's, TK famously bargained [Shukra] a 26M_USD settlement on behalf of his sister-in-law Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

  • India-PM 1917-1984 Martial Law Indira Gandhi [6] = a skilled negotiator with partners from a wide variety of castes and classes. [Mūla] Rahu-6 connotes a particular skill with adversaries, military, criminals, and exploiters.

Expedient Relationships + Instrumental Agreements

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson - Shukra-yuti-Rahu Mithuna-8. In addition to his legendary extramarital affairs, LBJ the Democrat was known to expediently cooperate with Republican interests while h worked both sides of the aisle. In particular he maintained a secret party-betraying alliance with his supposed political adversary, Richard Nixon.

Pleasure Taking Risks and Pursuing Adventure

Attracted to partners of exotic or passionate or taboo qualities.

In a husbandly nativity, the wifely figure may hails from a social class or religious culture that is different from one's own upbringing.

One's preference for this wifely-companion may contradict the wishes of one's parents or conflict with the social folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people. She may be be of a culturally inappropriate age

  • Heartbreak Hotel 1935-1977 Graceland Elvis Presley had Rahu [passionate] + Shukra [relationships] and he preferred the company of youthful partners [Budha]. Crossing a cultural boundary, the woman who eventually became his wife was age-14 when their relationship began. [They married legally when she was 22, but he rejected her nine months later, when she became a mother.]

or ethnicity or race

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson was deeply involved with -- yet never married -- the woman who bore him six children. TJ's second wife, avowed through the births of their children, was Sally Hemmings. She was the younger half-sister of his deceased wife Martha. Being of one-quarter African ancestry, Sally was legally a quadroon slave.

or from a different religious background

  • Top Gun 1962 cinema producer Tom Cruise's several wives have never shared his passion for his sacred doctrine

Rahu amplifies any graha He contacts whether by proximity or by drishti. If Shukra occupies a favorable rashi, the wife may enjoy an exceptionally beautiful or magnetically attractive appearance. It is not unlikely that the wifely-companion [Shukra] is also obsessed with her appearance

The first marriage at least = Rahu-boundary-breaching Obsessive choices of spouse may over-ride one's common sense. Whether ceremonial or established through the birth of a child. additional avowed alliances may be more balanced [Shukra] compared to the first union.

  • Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs * two marriages. 1st = Rahu-Mūla . 2nd = Shukra-Uttarāṣāḍha.

Tends toward impulsive or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting relationships and attitude toward contracts

In a husbandly nativity, the person in the role of wife-1 is prone toward expedient behaviors.

Shukra receives drishti of Rahu

similar to Shukra-yuti-Rahu, but slightly less intensely exotic less culturally mixed barrier-bending, taboo-twisting effect

Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr

POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton [Kuja-yuti-Shukra] [nīcha] [1] drishti from Rahu-9 ideology, worldview, convictions


Marriage alliance and contractual partnership often becomes a financial [Shukra] springboard to social privilege [Rahu].

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy [uchcha-Shukra-yuti-Rahu-12] Lifepartner-1 Joan Bennett, a fashion model, was a student at the all-women's R-C Manhattanville College of the Sacred Heart, the alma mater of TK's sisters [Shukra]. TK met Joan at a college honor ceremony for Kennedy Family extraordinary [Rahu] financial support [Shukra]. TK and his fascinating family were the stars of the show. Joan was part of the audience. TK's father swiftly approved the political-wife acquisition based on JB's values and balanced beauty (Shukra activates 2-7). Typical of Rahu impulsive decisions, with no get-to-know-you prelude, TK was told to marry this lovely, dreamlike Joan.

Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 also provides a similar effect to Shukra-yuti-Rahu

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich * Rahu yuti yuvati-pati-7 Shukra

Rahu + Shukra or Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 * a similar effect to the force of graha in classroom-6, the 12th-from yuvati bhava, the house of alliances.

  • Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 * the lord of Contracts and Agreements * Inability to commit to a person, a contract, a project, an goal. Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 typically believes that" rules are made to be broken" because higher spiritual values force abandonment of the contract. Rahu bhukti may signal the timing of dissolution of agreement.

  • Graha in bhava-6 can possess agency of loss of contract, loss of balance, loss of partnership, loss of mutual benefit and inability to achieve mutual understanding. Blaming and accusations are Typically, the outcome of this house.

Rahu + yuvati-pati-7 or Shukra in addition to the presence of graha in bhava-6 should predict a lifetime of inability to establish emotionally satisfying partnerships.

One may perceive oneself as being very well aware of how to craft agreements and the native will certainly be involved in continuous attempts to make deals and establish alliances.

However, the overall result when a Rahu + alliance karaka [Shukra or yuvati-pati-7 ] combines with the gravitational pull of graha in classroom-6 is a heavy weighting toward quixotic dreaming about the ineffable and unobtainable partner [Rahu] along with psychological resistance to equality in partnership [6] and attraction * akarshana * to unusual [and usually also inappropriate] partners [Rahu + Shukra] . Such a nativity is bound to try and try and try again - with little or not satisfaction - due entirely to one's own peculiarities.

Shukra = 6/8 to Rahu.

Social conflict as a result of inappropriate relationship attraction [Shukra] to a foreigner, one who is a taboo-breaker, who looks or behaves in an exotic way, one who deals in vulgar or forbidden substances. During Shukra/Rahu period, it is natural to be frightened of negative consequences from the beloved, such as debt or disease. However, if Rahu's ruler is strong, this conflict can be overcome by cultural education.
