  • energized bargaining
  • dynamic trading
  • alternating sexuality

    masculine force joins feminine allure

Professor Mangala often indicates a surgeon, butcher, a plumber, diver, miner, investigator, or one who penetrates the exterior skin-cover-barrier of things in order to reach an interior source of vitality.

Professor Shukra often indicates a harmonizer, arranger, match-maker, negotiator, deal-maker, crafter of promises and covenants, a diplomat and a partner

  • Sweets-seeking Shukra = incoming, magnetic, enticing, attractive, addictive, accommodating feminine energy.

  • Angarika = proactively out-going and sexual. Mangala = Competitive, proactive, penetrating sexual energy, that probes another's psychic and physical space. Kuja invades the aura of another.

Pleasure to Compete and Win

Design + Innovation

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci was possessed of a prodigious skill for drawing, sculpting, fixing, fastening, draping, and coloration, as well as Mangala-driven interest in textile engineering of new fabrics from the sports industry [Kuja innovation, sports] . EP had been a champion ski athlete in youth. He started the Pucci garment design career by making uniforms for his college ski team. Pucci generated hundreds of painted design patterns [Shukra, design] for his unique clothing range. Crafted from new-fiber textiles, his clothing became the fashion highlight of financially privileged European women in the 1960's.

The masculine partner is attracted to feminine partners of a bi-sexual, competitive and athletic nature. She is beautiful, energetic, and dominating in business and sport. The wife has both male friends and female friends. within relationships with other womenfolk , the wifely-figure is often the stronger partner. Other women enjoy her captivating power to generate an invigorating challenge.

  • My Fair Lady 1908-1990 musical theatre Rex Harrison [9, celebrity] led a famously promiscuous lifestyle, involving liaisons with many members of the theatre world. Conquesting [Kuja] through the fashionable populace of Hollywood, New York, and London, RCH enjoyed a transatlantic seven-decade career in theatre. His liaisons with both ladies and gentlemen were aided by his thespian ability to play a variety of romantic roles. Throughout the US and UK, audiences were charmed by his attractive vigor.

The wife may be a champion of women's rights who does not naturally enjoy the traditional gender-divisions of social activity. Rather she would prefer a the "do it yourself" dual-competence, where a woman can perform both female attractive roles and also male creative and productive roles.

When self-confident Surya joins the Shukra-Kuja pair, the wife may be a very powerful and capable person who has little patience for weakness in the male native's own character.

The male may enjoy the physical sexual component of the marriage relationship. He may also enjoy participation in dynamic, ambitious business dealings with his actively negotiating wife.

From the wifely perspective, her marriage contract [Shukra] may have a competitor [Kuja].

  • POTUS-pair-41 + POTUS-43 mother 1925-2018 Barbara Pierce Bush [Mangala-Mithuna] [Mangala in bhava-10] [Kuja-yuti-Shukra] According to her biographers, BPB suffered depression for many years due to her husband's open-secret affair-du-coeur with his long-serving female chief-of-staff. The 12-year liaison, during which GWHB and his assistant worked together in a shared office and traveled the world as a pair, was called by many as his second marriage. Yet when it was likely that he would become POTUS [10] the pattern was reversed, and BPB once again became the official publicly dignified lifepartner.

A case of Surya + Mangala + Shukra in Vṛścika-7

  • In addition to developing a global fashion design business [Shukra], Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci was also a fighter pilot in the WW-2 Italian military [Mangala]. Shukra lagnesha ++ Budha-Tula rules the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra. The 10-high-visibiliity profile includes Rahu=Kumbha-10. For a decade in mid-life, Pucci served in the Italian Parliament and as city councilor for Fiorenza. Pucci's governance entitlement was based in his youthful patriotic fighting and his aristocratic bloodline [Mangala nobility] . He politically supported northern Italian artisans in skills such as ceramic firing, stone-sculpting with sharp metal tools, or wood-and-wire looms for hand-weaving of fabrics [Mangala + Shukra] . His landed roots in local artisan craft kept his reputation strong in his part of Tuscany = roots 4th-from-4th = 7

RedWhite_lovefleur.JPGAnother type of Shukra PLUS Mangala pairing:

Shukra receives drishti of Kuja creating a similar but slightly less dominating effect.

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison [Kuja-1 drishti into Shukra-4]

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter [mutual drishti Kuja-4 with Shukra-10 = housing + leadership]

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods [Mangala-7 parivartamsha Shukra-1 ++ mutual drishti ]

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr [ mutual drishti Shukra-Dhanus-3 with Mangala-Mithuna-9] aids publishing endeavors, but violence afflicts the father

Works equally well with men and with women

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci + [Surya-yuti-Mangala] . EP worked with female clients, female fashion models, and female business owners in the woman-dominated industry of fashion design. He was a romantic, well known for premarital adventure. His daughter took the helm of his business after he retired.

Shukra = 6/8 to Kuja

Shukra-Kuja angle shows the sexuality balance. When this pair occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 angles, the result is off balance aesthetic and lovemaking styles. Inappropriate love attraction * akarshana * to an athlete, hunter, investigator, or actively competitive person causes conflict.

If Professor Mangala's classroom environment is energized and healthy, the gap between Professor Shukra's sensual, feminized love and Kuja's muscular, masculine dominating behaviors can be harmonized through intentional and conscious sexual engagement.


an imperial wedding scene, from the Chinese television drama Wu Zeitan

Q: My husband expresses no sexual interest in me, and I believe he does not even see me when we are together in our home. He disappears for long periods of time, returns in a rage, and has been both verbally and physically abusive to me.

I have a Ph.D. from a reputed university and I am not at all a superstitious thinker.... yet I am beginning to feel that some type of trickery is operating here. His family went to great lengths to secure this alliance. To ensure their advantage, they bullied my father into agreeing. Even though I am more educated and wealthier than this husband, and my father knew I preferred a mate of equal intelligence, he succumbed to their relentless attacks.

I want a divorce. But his family has my family in a stranglehold. They are shrewdly attempting to claim my family's properties, and have already launched a lawsuit against me which makes it impossible for me to get the divorce.

I feel sick when I think about his family's aggression which has reduced my father to fearful trembling. Something like an acid attack or a bride-burning would not be difficult for these predators. However, the worst part emotionally is that he seems to be disgusted by my body and in five years, we have never consummated the marriage. I feel frightened and entrapped.

A: Namaste,

Without commenting on the other features of the situation [including other Aśleṣa related vocabulary such as stranglehold and entrapment] it may be illuminating to focus upon the Shukra-Mangala-Aśleṣa pair in the nativity of the husband.

The assessment of male homosexual identity is produced via observing proximity of Aśleṣa-Shukra very close to Aśleṣa Mangala for amasculine birth. This combination of Shukra-very-close-to-Mangala [same nakshatra and ideally same pada] can indicate that the native is engaged in a sexually transitional incarnation. Such a male incarnation is unlikely to form an attraction to the female body of the wife. However, one might be attracted to other non-sexual gains such as the landed properties of the wife, and this attraction can maintain a non-sexualized marriage.

Karma means "required action". In a world-system like School-of-Earth where everything happens in pairs, one who completes the first half of a paired experience must also complete the second half. Generally, the duality-pairing pre-incarnationally planned earthly reincarnational system requires approximately 10 births in one gender, then switch for ten births in the other gender, then switch back again. The incarnation in which one switches is gender-wise a stressful one. After having been habituated to attraction toward women, a woman may be required to experience a hormonally male incarnation, but the paradigm of previous experience is still richly encoded in the field of expectations, and thus a woman may be predominantly sexually attracted to women. Same situation for men during their switch-over incarnation.

Thus approximately 10% of earth's population may identify as homosexual during each generation, and this has been true since time immemorial. Close proximity of Shukra [in-pulling attraction] and Mangala [out-going pursuit] suggests that these energies which are normally polarized along a male-female opposition pattern are deeply concentrated into a single body silo, and that the individual is attracted to those of the same, rather than opposite, anatomy. Some human social cultures are accepting and accommodating of those experiencing a switch-over incarnation; but other social cultures punish the switchers. Unfortunately there is so much criticism, pain, and suffering associated with the switching incarnations that many switchers must falsify their true sexual orientation.

Shukra-yuti-Mangala in very tight proximity within the Budha-ruled bonding-lashing-coupling nakshatra of Aśleṣa - Naga, Jyeṣṭha - Antares, or Revatī - Pushana strengthens the implications of frequent coupling with same-gender partners. Aśleṣa the clever Naga may mask the sexual reality via sham marriages and other cultural camouflage.

Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, success in all of life's endeavors, and continuing engagement in your study of the samayavidya,
