“Never before have relationships been as problematic and conflict ridden as they are now.

As you may continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again.

But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world.”

~~ A New Earth 1948- philosopher Eckhart Tolle

" Understanding of the self only arises in relationship, in watching yourself in relationship to people, ideas, and things; to trees, the earth, and the world around you and within you.

Relationship is the mirror in which the self is revealed.

Without self-knowledge there is no basis for right thought and action."

Jayakar, Krishnamurti p. 142

When does an interpersonal relationship become a marriage?

A sexual relationship becomes a marriage when

  • [1] a formal vow is spoken, forming a recognized bond of duty, or
  • [2] a shared child is born, forming a recognized bond of duty

Marriage is not romance.

Despite the marketing imagery, marriage has little to do with falling in love, with adoration, or charisma. Marriage is a legal, social, and moral obligation which requires the parties to adhere to the terms of a fixed, socially approved contract.

Marriage is a duty-based arrangement.

For romance and games, see bhava-5, 5th-from-Chandra, and Surya.

For the delights of children, see bhava-5, 5th-from-Chandra, saptamsha, and Guru

For marriage, see bhava-7, 7th-from-Chandra, navamsha, and Shukra.

For sexuality, see Mangala.

For extramarital affairs, see bhava-8 and Rahu.

psycho-emotional relationships based on ancient memory of:

  • marriage and partnership, promises

  • sexual relationships

  • Advising, consulting, and peer relationships - physician, attorney

  • Agreements, negotiations, andpower to reach agreement in the law courts

  • scales and balances, exchanges and contracts

  • physical body's external sexual pleasure organs

For masculine-feminine partnerships, the 7th-from angle resembles Shukra thus is a fairly easy placement for the feminine harmonizing energy. However, the 7th-from angle is less suitable for Ravi-like male self-centered energy. Therefore, the situation is different for male vs female perspectives, and it is different between the first lifepartnership vs second lifepartnership for the female.

From the viewpoint of the husbandly-companion

  • Shukra in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wife[s]


pitrikaraka Surya in 7th-from-Chandra


The partner is often a center-stage personality, requiring attention and applause. Selfishness to the point of narcissism and a propensity for romantic drama may be attributes of the spouse.

  • Clara Bryant Ford, the wife of Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 assembly line Henry Ford, was very publicly engaged in local mother-and-child aid and schooling for children [Karkata-6] . She worked through the local churches [Karkara, local rituals] . [Surya-yuti-Budha] = Clara had a powerful sand dignified social profile Henry had a tendency to put his foot in his mouth , but she helped him to build and protect his reputation His Chandra in Śrāvaṇa - Hari [reputation] rules his 7th-from-Chandra.

since Surya is the enemy of yuvati-karaka Shukra, the lifepartner may affect the native adversely, due to their self-referential romantic behaviors or narcissistic inability to put another's welfare before one's own

  • de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton [Budha-yuti-Surya] -Dhanus in 7th-from-Chandra-5.. Newton was a gay man who never married. He had one well-known multi-year relationship with a beautiful, dramatic young Dutch scientist who -- in a gambit to gain attention -- played romantic games with Newton's heart. Newton's blond paramour became flamboyantly involved with another European scientist, and in classic Surya style enflamed the competition between the suitors to increase flattery upon himself. Angry and heartbroken, after years of trysts and sharing pledges by-letter, Newton exited the relationship. If he took another partner at a later time, the public never knew.

  • King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson [Magha-Surya-yuti-Budha-Magha] [11, friendship] Lifepartnership-1 with fellow stage-performing singer, Lisa Marie Presley [famous daughter of Elvis Presley.] The couple belonged to the same entertainers community, and had a personal friendship before wedding. However, Surya in any marriage amsha indicates willful independence, and LMP made the decision [Surya] to extricate herself from MJJ's complex behavioral issues.

The lifepartner may be a person of highly developed or dominant willpower, independent to a fault and capable of individual actions.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner [Somana-yuti-Shani] Surya-2 parivartamsha Shani-8 * Steiner celebrated a first wedding in 1899 [Steiner's age 37] to his landlord and financial supporter, Anna Eunike. Ms. Eunicke was possessed of a treasury of family funds [Surya-2] which she used to financially support Mr. Steiner and his publishing endeavors. She was by observer's accounts a woman of independent mind and means. Her individuality and self-support capabilities may have encouraged a distaste for the political intrigues of the Theosophical Society which dominated Mr. Steiner's life. The marriage endured for nearly 12 years before ending in divorce.

Typically, the life partner is a brightly sparkling, aristocratic [in attitude if not in social station] personality, radiating confidence and drama

Lifepartner may be charismatic and entitled [Surya]

  • UK-Duchess of York 1959- Sarah Ferguson [Surya-yuti-Rahu Kanya in 7th-from-Chandra] [10, social visibility, iconic figures] [regal dharmesha Surya-10] + [Somana-yuti-Ketu-4] SF married Andrew Mountbatten-Windsor. Rahu indicates over-reaching in matters of Kanya = exploitation, young girls. Both SF's dad [Surya] and her ex-husband Andrew had career-ending sex-scandals involving under-age girls [Kanya]. Despite being stripped of certain titles, Andrew retained most of his royal privileges [Rahu].

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] married James Monroe in Feb-1786. EKM's Surya-Shukra-Shani-Ketu in Mithuna-12 suggests a complex, mainly invisible environment containing an entitled, self-central, talkative lifepartner. JM was an educated, handsome, wealthy attorney. He held highest political office as Governor of Virginia and 2-term USA-POTUS. His primary portfolio was foreign policy [12] JM praised EKM's contribution to their public-service partnership [Surya+Shukra]. Yet sadly, as EKM's health deteriorated [her Chandra-6] he withdrew into his increasingly complicated and demanding writing-and-discussing works [Mithuna-12].

Mangala in 7th-from-Chandra - Chandra-Mangala yoga


Combination particularly beneficial for material wealth and a dynamically moving partnership pattern.

The restless, competitive life-mate may need a lifestyle of nearly constant movement in pursuit of the mate's own particular quest for championship.

Lifemate = a winner, an athlete, a noble competitor, a tireless promoter. The mate may champion a theme, an idea, a message, a product, or other variety of outward expression.

There is a range of opinion as to whether this placement constitutes Kuja Dosha. Particularly when Mangala-12, Mangala-1, and Mangala-4 there is a critical need for range and space since the spouse is a competitive person and from the position of 7th-from-Chandra Mangala may been perceived to attack the Chandra emotions.

Generally, the couple will need SPACE.

Tendency for the marriage to contain more male-oriented environment. Spouse often prefers socializing with more masculine martial or sporting types.

A second marriage may experience friction [6] between the mate's personal preferences [2nd-from-Chandra] versus the Mangala work-forward-drive that becomes positioned in 6th-from-2nd-from-Chandra, for the second alliance.

  • While serving 12 Congressional terms [24 years] in mid-century USa, the second husband of POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford was a known political workaholic. Mangala-Simha-10 public leadership roles in politics-drama occupies 6th-from-2nd-from-Chandra. BBF's autobiographies complained that balancing their home-and-family life [Chandra] was increasingly difficult as Gerald Ford acquired more power in Congress, due to her husband's pattern of working on weekends.

Chandra-4 and the mate may persist compatibly in the relationship depending on other factors particularly the rashi of Kuja and other graha-yuti-Mangala that may temper the somewhat combative and dominating nature of muscular-moving Mangala.

Public-figure example of compounding factors - Kuja-Kanya drishti into Ketu-1 lagna, into Chandra-4 security, and 5-entertainment genius.

  • How Will I Know 1963-2012 singer model Whitney Houston = Kanya-Mangala-10 . WH married a well-known [10] fellow entertainment singer, who competed with her for creative dominance [Mangala] . In addition, he contested her sexual identity [Kuja] and unleashed a pattern of devastating physical battery. They both continued their public dramatic performance careers while the abuse personally debilitated WH.

Physical space is a premium requirement for longevity in the partnership; otherwise the mate may feel caged and attack the native or vica-versa.

  • Syriana 1961- drama-activist George Clooney [commercial-communicative Śrāvaṇa-3] + [nīcha-Guru-yuti-Shani] Two-year marriage-1 with the actor Talia Balsam. Unsustainability is increased due to [Mangala-Karkata] [nicha] [8] ++ Mangala-1 in Kanya svamsha. GC has commented that he felt unbearable pressure in the marriage, and he developed a severe illness from trying to compensate. Exacerbating factors include Covenant made during dvadasa Sade-Sati ++ Kuja-Shani mutual exchange ++ nishturabhashi yoga. While speaking respectfully at all times about spouse-1 [Shani-2] GC responded to the immediate survival threat by exiting the union.

Therefore arrangements which offer regular travel for the spouses, regular physical exercise for the mate, and plenty of physical space for the mate are the most helpful in this sort of relationship.

  • Golf 1975- champion Tiger Woods [secretive-explosive Maitra-4] [vargottamsha] [Anuradha-Shukra-yuti-Chandra-Anuradha-nīcha] [3, media-messaging, commerce] +TW married a photographic model who famously clobbered him [Mangala] with a golf club during a vigorous marital dispute.

Budha in 7th-from-Chandra


Budha in 7th-from-Chandra poses a challenging duality , due to the legendary apples-and-oranges incompatibility between emotionalized Chandra vs. mentalized Budha

Chandra and Budha are often unresolvably misaligned to each other.

At the level of electro-magnetic forces which shape existence, high-frequency transmitter Budha historically dislikes Chandra's low-frequency ancient push-and-pull entitlements.

  • Chandra pre-dates Budha, and Chandra has more power due to Chandra's localization and the nature of Soma's low-tone pulse. Which upstart-Budha resents.

Typically, a key relationship mismatch is the maturity gap . Chandra steadfastly holds the parenting role while a resentful Budha insists that business and manual craft are more important than security of homelife.

  • Fijación Oral 1977- singer Shakira Mebarak [Soma-Punarvasu-3] chose a man who is ten years her junior [her Budha-1] to be the father of her children. Youthful Budha rules SM Chandra-Mithuna, communicative manual-skills Budha rules life-defining contracts 7, and Budha intakes a fertile drishti from Guru-5.

Early in life alliances [which favor teenage Budha] may be easier to manage than later-life partnerships.

  • Chandra matures through parenting, grandparenting, feeding, maintenance of customary patterns, and caring for the environment.
  • Budha remains a mentalized chatterbox, tuned to mercantile activity and delivery of superficial information.

From Chandra's naturally rhythmic, earth-attuned viewpoint, the reliable turnover of the generations grants a gradual but inexorable sense of maturation.

From talkative Budha's perspective, emotional deepening through rich life experiences is not relevant. Chandra learns that Budha is simply not matched to patterns of seasonal flow. Budha

The result if often that, as the years stream by, the Budha-partner seems immature.

The Chandra native may feel [Soma] that the Budha partner is an unreliable parent, an insensitive schoolteacher, or an uncommited defender of the couple's Way of Life.

Professor Budha is delivering instruction in the relationship-focused classroom 7th-from-Chandra. Budha provides one, single descriptive element within a broader profile of a core security-stability relationship. Often Budha has companion Graha which must be evaluated along with incoming drishti, rashi, and prevailing Vimshottari Dasha periods..



Adolescent Characteristics of Spouse

The salient issue in marriage is often immaturity of the mate, whether physical, social, or psychological.

Sensitive Somana

Parental Moon represents the phase of Earth's psychic development during which families, tribes, ethnicities, and races were established, Chandra's view of time is moody, cyclical, and undulating. Chandra's ancient family-based behavior is largely unchanging within the tidal polarity.

Blustering Budha

represents the adolescent experience of high mentalization that is often lacking a secure emotional foundation.

  • Like a fresh green sprout pushing into the world, the Kumara is often wholly involved in the articulation of His own message.
  • Beholden to no one, teenage Kumara asserts that His behavior is self-explanatory .

Although others may perceive young Budha's self-declaring narratives as repetitive [or trite] , for Budha the Word is all-defining.

  • Due to His characteristic impatience, lack of experience, and immaturity, Budha may speak uncaringly. He may seem incapable of comprehending of the emotional experience of others.

According to legend, quickly communicating, adolescent Shri Budha expresses contempt and disregard toward his reflective , culturally older, more emotionally stable parent Shri Chandra.

Depending on His rashi, Budha may demonstrate Oppositional-Defiant argumentativeness toward elder Chandra, whom He perceives as a parental authority figure. The marriage may feel one-sided, with the native managing household, parenting, vehicles, and schooling. Meanwhile, the Budha-mate studies, chats, writes, communicates with the cohort, or operates a business -- none of which contributes to the daily routine of meals, cleaning, seasonal festivals, caring for elderly, or providing security.

Peter Pan * Never Grows Up

One may feel that the partner, However, witty, is emotionally immature and prone toward logical argument rather than peer cooperative action. There is often an imbalance of responsibilities where the native [Chandra] performs the lion's share of the parenting duties whereas the Budha partner is a perpetual student, adolescent in attitude, and unreliable in performing household maintenance.

  • de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton [Chandra-5] + [Surya-yuti-Budha] -11 * Newton's primary love relationship was conducted with a youthful blond Dutch scientist. The young beauty's artful letters of correspondence land occasional tryst visits led Newton to expect a committed partnership. However, the junior partner proved all charming talk and no faithful behavior. After the devastating realization that his lover lacked the maturity to maintain a committed peer liaison, Newton ceased romantic relationships. Surya adds flamboyance and theatrical confidence to the Kumara's adolescent traits.

  • Layla 1945- guitarist Eric Clapton [believing Arcturus-1] [Shukra-yuti-Budha] [9]

Broadcasting Budha = transmitter-receiver.

He possesses a relatively minimal agenda that is unique to Himself. Rather, His assignment is to communicate the curricular instructions of the other Professors with articulate, descriptive accuracy. The pair are usually mentally compatible. They tend to think and converse in a similar way and be interested in similar subjects.

Results of Budha in classroom 7th-from-Chandra naturally must depend on the effects of any graha yuti-Budha. Budha is impressionable and youthful, quickly adapting His vocabulary and grammar to the message of the moment, therefore results also depend upon Parashari drishti received from other graha into Budha, the usual characteristics of Budha's bhava, and the agenda of Budha's planetary ruler.


Qualities of analytical, instructional, descriptive, documenting, explanatory mentalism, mercurial communications, gesturing, chattiness, and coupling are characteristic of Budha. The primary partnership often displays qualities of sibling-ensemble alignment; the pair are part of a cohort of a similarly communicating entourage. They share both a message and a format for message delivery.

Budha's rashi can provide additional characterization of the mental sharing inherent in the relationship.

  • POTUS-31-pair Girl Scouts 1874-1944 author Lou Henry Hoover and her husband Herbert Hoover were intellectual equals. Among their many Kumara-style shared interests, this married couple co-wrote and co-translated numerous scientific books. LHH [Budha-Kumbha + Budha in bhava-9] in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a mentally compatible sibling-affinity bond. Their shared mental interests provided engaging topics upon which to converse. They lived in a misogynistic customs of the era, when public opinion would generally deny that a wife could match her husband's mental abilities. Yet, Herbert Hoover made no secret of the fact that his wife was his daily adviser and writing partner.

Documentation, management, administration, cohort

Generally, the mate-partner exhibits some Budha-type behaviors such as shop-keeping, writing, calculations, planning, analysis, or communications. \

Partners need not be marital spouses; partners can also be emotionally trusted peers who share mutually-agreed activities with the native.

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding [Surya-yuti-Kuja] + [Budha-yuti-Shani] [3] [Budha-4 parivartamsha Shukra-3-nīcha] *****

  • Flossie Harding was the daughter of a newspaperman and herself an accomplished businesswoman. The complexity of their relationship is demonstrated via Budha-Surya-Mangala-Shani in 7th-from-CHandra. Flossie's management of WGH's career began with her skillful provisioning of journalistic articles that favored her husband, delivered to regional newspapers always hungry for copy. It ended with her instructing [Budha] his secretaries to burn all of his personal and professional papers immediately after his untimely death. As a result of Flossie's management style, very little documentation survives from Harding's presidency and many questions about his personal life remain unanswered.

Despite a persistent communicative element within the relationships, if the graha in 7th-from-Chandra are uncomfortable, then the relationship itself may suffer from the characteristics disabilities of the afflicted graha.

DEALS, TRADES, Alliance building, negotiations, and other types of hustle

Naturally, 7th-from-Chandra reveals much more about one's bargaining, exchanging behavior than simply the marriage scenario. 7th-from-Chandra has implications for business dealings, lawyering, and every kind of brokerage.

She hosted countless political discussions and was involved in the [often unethical] deal-making for Whitehouse political-office appointments.

Brihaspati is a preacher-teacher. The Devaguru possesses a prominently generous, charitable, inclusive, wide-scope, doctrinal, theoretical, theological, philosophical agenda that is unique to Himself among all of the graha. Professor Guruva's assignment is to spread the principles of compassionate understanding by expanding the scope of awareness.

Brihas-pati is broad-minded and inclusive, and He is generally concerned with matters of higher teaching such as sacred doctrine, theoretical science, and humanistic philosophy.

Presuming that Guru is not nichha and not overly compromised by a damaged ruler or unsavory drishti, the lifepartner displays jovial qualities of benevolence, goodwill, inclusiveness, liberality, and fertility.

When Guru occupies 7th-from-Chandra, the pair are usually doctrinally compatible. in the sense that they share a similar ideological framework for understanding the world around them. They tend to hold similar beliefs, often a common catechism, and have a comparably equivalent scope of wisdom. They see approximately the same-sized portion of the worlds.

Results of Guru in classroom 7th-from-Chandra naturally must depend on the bhava ruled by Guru, in addition to the effects of any graha yuti-Guru.

Guru's results also depend upon Parashari drishti received from other graha into Guru, the usual characteristics of Guru's bhava, and the agenda of Devaguru's planetary ruler. Depending on the specific characteristics of Guru, the mate may have either dominant or muted behaviors of the agency of guidance such as preaching and teaching.

Guru in 7th-from-Chandra is one of the profile elements that can contribute to a prognosis for multiple lifemates. However, all of the mates are likely to benefit the native. They all demonstrate the broader Guru behaviors of globalism and philosophical viewpoint.

in a wifely nativity, Guru in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the first husband

  • Telepathy 1880-1949 esoterica Alice Bailey AAB's first husband was an ordained Anglican priest with mental health issues leading to domestic violence. Second husband was a gracious businessman and theosophy teacher. Guru-Meena in 7th from Chandra-12

  • UK-Queen 1926-2022 Elizabeth-2 [uchcha-Kuja-yuti-Guru [nichha] [1] The husband situation is very complex, because [Kuja-1 parivartamsha Shani-11] and the [nīcha-Guru in 7th-from-Chandra-7] is boosted by [uchcha-Kuja]. However, under dignified restraint by Shani, the implication of multiple partners remains. Chandra-7 generally prefers a parenting mate.

  • Lights Out 1968-2023 singer Lisa Marie Presley ; Guru-Simha-9 in 7th-from-Chandra-Kumbha-3. Four marriages, four divorces. All of her husbands were entertainers [Simha] in musical performance roles similar to her dad, Elvis Presley [9].

  • UK-Princess Royal 1950- equestrienne Anne Laurence * two marriages. Chandra with Budha-yuti-Shani rather overwhelms Kumbha-Guru-5.

  • Iran-Shahani 1932-2001 Soraya Esfandiari Bakhtiari

  • Entertaining 1941- housekeeping Martha Kostyra Stewart [Shani-yuti-Guru]

  • POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower * husband Dwight D. Eisenhower was a teacher of military history and science [during a lifetime military career, he did not enter direct combat] . Her Guru-Simha-1 shows that DDE would develop into a politician, and Mamie's physical appearance would be key to his public success.

Tolerant, expansive, inclusive Guru in 7th-from-Chandra is often an indicator of multiple emotionally-attached alliances.

It is important to be able to distinguish between publically legitimated marriages which are sanctified by the state's authority [Shani] versus the emotionally defined and motivated connections to other partners that may develop in addition to the legal marriage contract.

  • Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung Guru-9 occupies 7th-from Chandra. Professor Guru sends permissive drishti into, and Guru is ruled by, the matching, pairing Mithuna-Shukra-yuti-Budha in 5 = creative literature, speculation. Jung formed a series of secondary intimate alliances [Shukra] with feminine students [Budha] . Under his tutelage, these brightly intelligent apprentice ladies soon became his professional colleagues and skilled practitioners of Jung's talk-based [Mithuna] therapeutic method [Mithuna] . Shukra-Purnavasu [lifepartner-1] = gracious, flexible, and communicative. Despite his multiple sexual alliances, CGJ's formal marriage [Shukra] to Emma Jung produced five children and many books. The original marriage contract endured until Emma's death at Jung's age-80.

Guru-Meena or Guru-Dhanus in 7th-from-Chandra often shows a mate who takes the social role of philosopher, theorist, ideologue, pandit, proselyte, bishop, kohen, kahuna, presbyter, priest.

  • Telepathy 1880-1949 esoterica Alice Bailey * husband-1 = Anglican Priest. She met her first husband while serving as a Christian missionary in UK soldier's hospitals in India . Her Guru in bhava-6 * Shows the priestly training. He was said to have been a brilliant theology student and a capable liturgist, but he suffered from severe mental illness and being so handicapped [6] did not provide financially for their family [6, poverty] . Brihaspati is a particularly growth-challenging graha for the Tula nativity.

Bond between female and her first husband is very stable, with husband-1 quite committed to enduring partnership and female in appreciation and satisfaction with that commitment.

Material conditions which derive from the bhava-lordships and other qualities of Guru may or may not be growth-challenging, but emotionally the bond with the first husband is appreciable.

  • POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower - Guru-Simha occupies 7th-from-Chandra-Kumbha-7. Mamie was a natural socialite [Kumbha]. As the manager of their two-person career, she built a gridwork of associations based in her absent husband's persona.

This position is not a guarantee of life-long marriage, and in fact ceteris paribus Guru in 7th from Chandra is an indicator of multiple partners similar to Guru residing in yuvati bhava-7.

However, even in situations of divorce or separation, one's trusting friendship with the first partner will offer a lifetime support.

For a wifely-companion chart, Guru in 7th from Chandra indicates that helpful goodwill between the spouses assists in co-parenting after divorce

Shukra in 7th-from-Chandra


Shukra occupies 7th-from-Chandra

Although Chandra has no enemies, Shukra does have enemies.

Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu's agenda focuses on the development of polarity and partnership, and thus Shukra harbors animosity toward Chandra's non-partnering portfolio.

Comforting Chandra emphasizes parenting, caretaking, nourishment and sheltering. Chandra relationships are nourishing and protective, but not equal, and cannot become truly equal

Lifepartner values beauty, finance, equity, balance

  • Two Women 1934- luxury eyeframes Sophia Loren [Shukra-Singha -4] married Carlo Ponti, a famed creative film-drector in the entertainment industry. During a fifty-year union, the pair shared dwellings that featured splendid gardens, palatial architecture, and gold ornaments. [Simha-4]

Soothing Somana ensures that one's parents are not one's equal partners. Parents are protectors not equals. Mother-father are a special, honored, privileged set of providersof care and shelter.

The opposition creates a tension in the marriage between parenting protective unequal affections versus the attraction * akarshana * of equals. One of the partners focuses on parenting, maintaining safety, home-steading and the other partner is concerned with attractiveness, negotiations, bargaining, and terms of agreement.

In the case of Shani-yuti-Shukra in 7th-from-Chandra, the power of social-institutional lawfulness and duty are greatly emphasized within the marriage contract.

One tends to marry a beautiful, gracious, and harmony-seeking spouse, but at the same time this lovely lifepartner may be burdened [Shani weight] with a heavy schedule of social obligations and public responsibilities.

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford [Rohiṇī-Shani-yuti-Shukra-Rohiṇī] [10] . President Ford enjoyed an enduring two-person career based in lifelong public support [5] from aesthetic advisor and dancer, Betty Bloomer Ford

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe married the attorney, deal-broker, match-maker, alliance-crafter POTUS-5 James Monroe. Her 7th-from-Chandra-Dhanus-6 contains Surya + Shukra + Shani + Ketu. JM became a prominent European diplomat, writer of key foreign policy documents [Mithuna] and crafter of numerous treaties [Shukra trust]


Shani in 7th-from-Chandra


Shani in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a long delay in finalizing the marriage agreement, or a marriage partner who is often living separately, and also a marriage to one elder to oneself either by chronological age or by social seniority [such as a person with a more respected professional rank] .

Spouse may be born into a lower social station. However, the spouse's relative social rank could be highly dignified even under modest conditions, depending on Shani's characteristics. For example, uchcha-Shani may indicate a lifepartner who shoulders lawful duties in balanced hierarchies, structured social justice, or imposition of class-equity rules.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci [Shani-Mithuna] [Shani in bhava-2] [durokaraka-Shani = delay] . EP married ony once, his age 45, with Baronessa Cristina Nannini di Casabianca. She carried an old social rank [Shani] but she was also commercially-oriented [Mithuna] . Her sober pragmatic contribution was said to have kept Pucci solvent.

  • General Electric 1935-2020 CEO Jack Welch lived separately from lifepartner-1-of-3 during most of their 28-year marriage, purportedly due to his business responsibilities. Shani-11 in 7th-from-Chandra-Simha-5. Shani rules 10-11 conferring a heavy workload in corporate governance and economics. However, a nicha-Shukra suggests other activities as well.

The life-partner may carry unusually heavy responsibilities from their own background which the native then acquires as a feature of the marriage.

  • POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding [Surya-yuti-Kuja] + [Budha-yuti-Shani] [3] married Flossie Kling, who was five years his senior. She had a young son from her first marriage for whom Harding accepted parental responsibility.

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich [Shani-yuti-Budha] [7] on his 19th birthday NG married his high-school math teacher. She was 26, seven years his senior.

Alliances tend to be long-lasting, hard-working, often burdenson - but solidly lawful.

Judgments [Shani] about the marriage, whether social or financial, tend to be strictly in accordance with the prevailing conventions of the time. [conventional Shani]

In the USA, most states legally interpret assets held by the parties before the marriage to belong to the individuals. However, assets acquired during the time of the contractual alliance are generally adjudged to be marital property. Since mid-20th century, the conventional approach has been to split the marital assets equally.

Oxthodox Public Marital Behavior - regardless of inner despair

  • Prodigals 1920-2007 writer-illustrator Ruth Bell Graham [Shani in protective-customary Magha-4] married Billy Graham in 1943, after they had both graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois. Their early marriage years had conventional marital behaviors and five children were produced. But when Rev. Graham's radio-television preaching career escalated due to the funding infusion from William Randolph Hearst, the couple endured long separations due to BG's Hollywood-style preaching career [Shani-Simha-Magha in 7th-from-Chandra]. Eventually, his roadshow consisted of extended international tours. For the core decades of the marriage, RGB was a single parent. Although they were photographed together and RGB was a key figure in their advertising campaigns, in reality the couple saw each other only when his schedule allowed.

Material effort is paramount

  • Basic Instinct 1944- drama-commerce Michael Douglas. In their divorce proceedings following a 23-year alliance, the court found that MKD's first wife had quietly but steadily materially contributed to their total joint entreasurement. When their contractual union was legally dissolved in year-2000, the judge split their HNWI assets almost equally.

Occasionally Shani durokaraka may help to negate marriage completely.

Shani may prioritize The System above the marriage.

The lifemate may be effectively married to a social duty, a governance task, or to some obligation to maintain the institutional order. Shani delays but He does not deny. Usually, here is a marriage at some point in the lifespan.

However, the conditions of the relationship may be less welcoming and the mate may present structural [Shani] reasons why it is a strain for them to fulfill their duties.

Depending upon Shani's bhava, the lifepartner's duty roster may be burdensome albeit respected.

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe married POTUS-5 James Monroe. As a diplomat, governor, and plantation-supervisor, JM carried a heavy burden of governance responsibility throughout life. JM was ten years elder to EKM.

In order for Shani to become an agent of marriage-denial, there must be other agents in the nativity that would employ Shani's legitimizing and austerity-promoting behaviors to secure a celibate status.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso [Shani-Kumbha] [Shani in Bhava-7] His Holiness was ordained in early life as a celibate Gelugpa lama. Thus free of family concerns, he was able to dedicate himself to the preservation and maintenance [Shani] of Tibetan culture in exile. In addition to residing in 7th-from-Chandra, Shani also occupies a high state of dignity dikbala in Kumbha-7 showing a community [Kumbha] leadership duty roster while Ketu-yuti-Budha activates Svamsha indicating detachment from psycho-emotional partnerships.

  • Dialogue 1347-1380 St. Catherine of Siena [Shani-yuti-Ketu]. A celibate nun in an era when unmarried women were often viciously harmed, she was able to devote herself to the construction of a religious order for women. The order still exists today, 700 years after she structured it [Shani durokaraka] . For Saint Catherine, yuvatipati [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] occupies bhava-8, signaling a fascinating [Rahu] version of widowhood.

The mother's experience of marriage may be exceptionally anti-innovative, conservative, and inflexible as indicated by rigid Shani in 7th-from- matrikaraka -Chandra. The parents generally hold an expectation that the native will conduct the type of marriage alliance which maintains the social order.

Much depends upon the bhava occupied by Chandra and Shani as well as any yuti-graha. Also Shani's significations of age, seniority, and responsibility are increased when Shani occupies Makara or Kumbha, or when Chandra-Makara enjoys parivartamsha with Shani-Karkata.

Shani may be socially structured and respectable but, especially with age, less participatory and more rigid

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson .Shani-1 casts drishti into 3-7-10, and Shani-1 rules populist Kumbha-10th-from-Chandra = Eliza's steady impace on his public career. AJ's lifepartner Eliza was the daughter of a shoemaker. She and Johnson shared a working-class cultural perspective [Shani]. Eliza had physical limitations, due to tuberculosis [Shani rules lungs-3]. During most of their married life, they lived apart [he in the legislative capitals, she on their slave plantation]. During AJ's POTUS term, Eliza came out of her Whitehouse bedroom only twice, briefly. They were married for 50 years and died a few months apart.

From the viewpoint of the wifely-companion

Shani resides in 7th from Chandra = 7th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the second husband

7th-from-Chandra = mutual aspeci

Chandra accepts Shani's weaker 7th-angle graha-drishti

  • Beholden to the attorneys, partners and advisers

Either by their presence or by their absence

The Partner [7] and the emotional, empathetic Self [Chandra] become the primary instructional agents in a lawful, pre-incarnationally planned struggle to transform emotional ignorance into emotional wisdom.

Until Shani matures at age 36, Vimshottari bhukti of Shani may be particularly growth-challenging within emotional relationships.

One may experience polarization [7] between public accomplishment [Shani] and private satisfaction [Chandra].

Emotional marriage obligation which presents a significant learning curve for the incarnation may reveal itself as the Akashic memory patterning of bargaining and negotiating with a difficult, intractable, or authoritarian partner.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso and his practice-partner = the Chinese government oppressors

First marriage may be very demanding due to the public responsibilities and/or rigidly controlling personality of the spouse. It may be easier to forego marriage entirely and rather develop a highly disciplined relationship to the ishta-devata .

If marriage is undertaken, Shani in the 7th-from angle acquires a variety of directional weight [dikbala] which supports patience and endurance especially if the partner is elder or senior in professional dignity.

  • France-Emperor 1769-1821 Wars Napoleon Bonaparte [financial-historical Śrāvaṇa-2] [shani-3 parivartamsha Chandra-9] + [Pushya-Budha-yuti-Shani-Pushya] Lifepartnership-1-of-2 with courtier Josephine, a widow six yrs NB's elder. Although Napoleon sent her volumes of letters from his distant military campaigns, the pair endured multi-year separations. Both partners enjoyed affairs-du-coeur.

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover married Lou Henry Hoover . Lou had considerable ability to handle responsibilities. She served as a national official of the Girl Scouts, was the leader of several corporations [privately owned by her family members] and was clearly the organizing force behind Hoover's publishing and investment career. A staunch and steadfast Shani-Makara occupies Hoover's radical 7th-from-Chandra-Pushya. Mrs. Hoover was born 6 months elder to her husband.

Shani confers endurance and public dignity

  • Unfortunately, Shani rules 6th-from-Chandra [6 grifting, theft]. SM discovered that her steady, loyal husband had been embezzling [6] millions from her accounts. Rahu-Ketu bhukti finally collapsed the facade.

It may take the better part of a lifetime to understand one's own emotional needs and expectations within a partnership, and to acquire the requisite emotional maturity to function as an equal partner in respect to another person's emotional expectations.

Nevertheless, she publicly expressed her dislike for the frivolity of politics [Shani also rules contemptuous, impoverished 6]. GGC did not opine upon political matters, and the couple did not share decisions about their public life. CC specifically he did not consult his wife on career decisions.

Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra

can only occur in nativities containing Chandra-yuti-Ketu

Public Figure Examples


When Professor Rahu delivers His curriculum in classroom 7th-from-Chandra, His lessons focus on the experience of bonding with a fascinating mate. The partner, and the pattern of partnership where there are multiple partners, is characterized by the mate's tendency to be over-reaching, extraordinary, rule-challenging, often mesmerizing, ambitious, and risk-encouraging.

One tends to marry an aspiring fabulous exceptional person. Often a social climber, seeker of privilege, a mesmerizing mate.

Shani is the rule-maker and Rahu is the rule-breaker. Although Rahuvan is not inherently prone to crime or danger, nevertheless it is Rahu's nature to be always looking for routes toward privilege and success that are not constrained by social conventions and customs.

Risk-rewarding Rahu's character is distinctively instrumentalist, opportunistic, and expedient. Therefore, the lifemate may share with the native pronounced qualities of risk-taking and unconventional approach, including a disregard for normalized social behaviors in marriage. Rahu partners often hail from a different race, class, religion, gene pool, or social background than the native. The native and the partner often share the excitement of adventure and unusual means of achieving social importance.

The native is often emotionally apathetic or suffers sensitivity regarding abandonment, due to one's own Chandra-yuti-Ketu.

As always, Rahu's bhava and its ruler are definitive.

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer [Chandra-yuti-Ketu in kumbha-4] while the royal pair [Kuja-yuti-Rahu-Singha] inhabit public-visibility-10. This pattern suggests an exceptionally expedient, high-profile union with a powerfully active, entitled mate. Simha indicates royalty and celebrity.

The Rahu-7 mate often hails from a distinctively different social-ethnic-national-economic-doctrinal background. The bhava occupied by Rahu is critically important for predicting the impact of this Mix-Master, aspiring-to-ascend mate upon the fortunes of the native.

Rahu- in 7th-from-Chandra is not always proof of a brief marriage. Truely, Rahu personalities are clever opportunists. Yet marriage is a rule-based legal contract. Therefore, the Rahu-mate may be expediently using the marriage for purpose of obtaining increased public visibility or enhancing the public reputation.

  • Oops 1981- music-merchandise Britney Spears [Rahu-Karkata-12, private spaces, imagination] During her Rahu-Ketu bhukti, BJS entered a 50-hour impulsive first legal marriage to friend from high-school [Rahu-Karkata, familiar-face]. The consecration ceremony was held in a commercial wedding chapel in Las Vegas. Swiftly avoiding financial disaster, BJS's lawyers had the marriage annulled [zeroed] within three days of the avowal, on the grounds that both parties were inebriated during the contract-signing. BJS high-profile music-and-merchandise career continued to accelerate, due to Guru-3 in 10th-from-Chandra. The three-day spouse continued to be a socially invisible persons [12]. He earned commissions by selling his story as "Britney's First Husband". He was jailed several times [12] due to excessive behaviors including stalking [Rahu].

Importantly, additional graha which might join the Chandra-yuti-Ketu pair, and any additional graha which might share a rashi with Professor Rahu, can significantly alter the predicted outcomes. The two bhava on the Rahu-Ketu axis are also important predictors.

Professor Ketu having taken up a position of teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra, Professor Ketu-the-Disperser is not inherently an indicator of divorce, unless there are numerous additional supporting factors pointing in the direction of a legal split of the union.

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin [Rahu-12, socially invisible partners] VUL married an ambitious colleague, but the alliance breached the bounds of exclusivity due to private affairs on both sides. VUL's love for one of his extramarital partners was deep, enduring for 10 years until her death from disease. However, this lover would not marry him. VUL's legal marriage to Comrade Krupskaya continued until VUL's death. Both partners believed that their public reputation was morally important toward maintaining the legitimacy of their revolutionary government. Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra = illusory, instrumental partnerships.

Rather, the signification may be a perception of the ineffability of the character of the spouse, who may seem disconnected or disoriented in some way. It may be that the spouse is a frequent traveller who is rarely engaged in the union. Perhaps the spouse chooses to enter meditative seclusion.

Although the native is largely detached from the drama of the spouse's life, there is never a dull moment in these relationships. The challenges tend to focus upon cultural and religious differences between the partners.

  • Moonies 1920-2012 Rev. Sun Myung Moon was first married in 1945. His wife Sun-kil Choi was a passionate [Rahu] believer in Christian doctrine which was then an exotic foreign faith [Rahu]. While married to his first wife, Rev. Moon developed his first group of churches and composed the foundational scripture of his ministry "The Divine Principle" . Kuja-yuti-Rahu

Rahu-Ketu share the rashi axis of Chandra = Emotional volatility, psychic intensity. Emotionally scattered, the feelings may not be successfully connected to each other

If Rahu occupies 7th from Chandra then automatically Chandra-yuti-Ketu.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu suggests that the mother is dispersed, disregarding, distanced, not available. It might be her work schedule, her religious or marital commitments, her social life, or her medical issues, but whatever the reason this mother is not fully available to deliver unconditional love to the child.

Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra indicates a mother who is more fascinated by and engaged with her partners, particularly the husband [s] , whom the mother perceives as crucial launching pads for her personal self-elevation and gain of privilege.

The native too may attempt to marry up in some fashion. Husbandly-companions may become fascinated by rather exotic, typically very beautiful., women; Feminine Nativities by men who seem to radiate extraordinary privilege and power.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt married two internationally famous actress-models

Chandra afflicted by Ketu produces emotionally detached witness behavior. One may be a keen observer of human life, but the emotional attitude is not sentimental.

In both personal and professional relationships, Chandra-Ketu can often successfully utilize the emotionally disconnected witness function. This yoga enables one to operate quietly but successfully in bizarre, lawless, or inhumane environments.

The Rahu mate expresses public face of the partnership. Rahu's material ambition generally attracts an interesting, risk-positive, self-promoting mate who understands that the partnership is the best platform upon which to launch the mate's own quest for higher privilege.

Unless there are compensating graha in the same bhava with the Chandra-Ketu pair, one with Rahu in 7th-from-Soma may have been traumatized in some unremembered [Ketu] fashion and as an adult can seem unfamiliar with basic compassion.

When pressed for involuntary, instinctive human emotional response, Chandra +Ketu often has nothing to say.

There are many exceptions caused by favorable graha yuti Ketu-Soma

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt for example has five graha in the Chandra-Ketu cluster

  • Green Mile 1947- horror-fiction Stephen King + [Guru-yuti-Ketu] [nīcha] Chandra-5 parivartamsha Kuja-1 [nīcha] sK's detached Chandra-yuti-Ketu is made much more generous and understanding via its conjunction with Guru in political, dramatic, intelligent bhava-5

The Rahu mate assumes role of emotional advocate, attorney, representative who acts with ambitious demonstrative energy on behalf of the native.

  • Pope-264 John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla [Rahu in bhava-11] occupies 7th-from-Chandra. KW rose to the top rank of his worldwide religious hierarchy, ever-maintaining the public role of a celibate priest. Yet, he maintained a lifelong relationship with a female Polish psychiatrist-sexologist named Wanda. Many felt that Wanda permitted Lolek to express his parental instincts [Chandra]. Lolek and Wanda corresponded frequently by telephone and letter; they vacationed together in a family style. Some observers compared them to the famed medieval couple Heloise and Abelard, but Wanda appeared to play the role of his feminine informant and familiar sister . KW's devotion to the figure of Mary the Mother was legendary. Indeed.he insisted that Our Lady of Fatima saved his life when he was nearly killed by an assassin's bullets on the feast day of Nossa Senhora do Rosário de Fátima in Oct-1981. Apparently his relationship with the feminine figure Wanda was non-negotiable, and KW was unconcerned about breaking taboos Somana-yuti-Ketu .

The first life-partnership is often a high-contrast relationship with one high-drama mate [the Rahu mate] and one low-engagement mate [the native] .

The social outcome of any legal union [marriage or business contract] depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is any graha yuti Rahu. Also of top predictive importance is the condition of bhava-7 counted from lagnar.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu = emotionally withdrawn and passive by character. One is more comfortable [Chandra] in the disengaged Witness role.

  • Agreement-crafting style ranges from neutral to passive-aggressive."Whatever you want to do, honey."

  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to attract mates who have an ambitious life agenda.

The mate indicated by Rahu in 7th-from-Soma tends toward hyper-engagement in the relationship, because the union becomes a highly expedient platform to facilitate the mate's own quest for privilege.

As a result the Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7-mate tends to have a more vivid, charismatic personality when compared to the native.

The Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7-mate assumes the public face of the relationship. Meanwhile, Chandra-yuti-Ketu may seem dissatisfied, withholding affection, and uncommitted to the present union while unable to generate alternatives.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to accept default conditions. Chandra-yuti-Ketu is rarely the instigator of a separation. In divorce-permitting cultures, it will be the Rahu-partner who officially files for divorce.

WRTinterpersonal unions, Chandra-yuti-Ketu is better suited to the"living together" model that does not require a legal contract. If there is legal contract such as a business partnership or a state-certified marriage, one's passive emotional attitude may permit a personal and professional toy persist for decades without significant engagement.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu generally appreciates and accepts the agenda of the Rahu mate. The downside: when and if, for their own opportunistic Rahu-reasons, this mate decides to abandon the partnership, Chandra-yuti-Ketu is powerless to prevent it.

In such an event, Chandra-yuti-Ketu tends to accepts the mate's Rahu-urgent decision as "inevitable" [Ketu]. Chandra-yuti-Ketu is rarely pro-active in agreement maintenance behaviors. When a break-up threatens in personal or professional partnership, Chandra-yuti-Ketu does not try to prevent it.

Additional graha yuti Rahu may signal complicated behavioral excesses. E.g., Rahu + multiplier Guru in 7th-from-Soma indicates more than one mate. [Rahu + Guru in bhava-7 radix indicates multiple life-mates also.]

  • Yet, in general, Rahu in 7th-from-Soma tends to be more significantly invested in the relationship than the native.

  • One experiences the deepest challenge to cultural norms through the possessive behavior of The Other who expresses a desire to possess one, psycho-emotionally.

  • Man with Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra is attracted to exotic, dramatic and desirous women. Male may be at the emotional mercy of Feminine Nativities.

The first marriage, for either gender, is often emotionally impulsive or characterized by opportunistic motivation.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt= a highly complex group of graha with Chandra indicate a complex emotional constitution. Rahu-8 in 7th-from-Chandra signals opportunistic elements in the first marriage arrangement.

  • Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus= hailed from modest circumstances of his impoverished birthland of Bangla-desha. His first marriage was to a Russian émigré graduate student earning her doctorate in literature at a USA university. Rahu suggests a first marriage to partner of exotic racial, religious, or cultural background [exotic relative to the native] . In his autobiography, Professor Yunus recounts how he delayed and resisted the marriage requests of his girlfriend, knowing that he intended to return to Bangladesh where she would be forced to live in very unfamiliar and perhaps hostile circumstances. However, in a moment of impulse, he suddenly said yes. The couple and their child stayed together for seven years, with a legal divorce in the 9th year of the union.

Caution to Chandra-Ketu natives seeking legal marriage in a period of Rahu. Consider waiting to make a sensible decision, until the "high tide" of Rahu period has subsided.

7th-from-Chandra is a maraka position; spouse may be one's partner in death

Chandra-yuti-Ketu typically indicates an emotionally disengaged personality . One prefers to assume the emotional stance of the Witness [Ketu]. One responds to energized situations with whatever protocols of behavior may arise from other graha. For example, Mangala would determine one's habitual response to physical aggression while Professor Shani would mandate one's normal emotional response to social-legal structures.

One element which is typically missing from the emotional repertoire is any pronounced emotional need to draw security from an outside source, such as a partner. The native is emotionally dispersed, somewhat ungrounded via the typical roots through family and place of settlement, and often clairsentient.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu folk are not always beholden to the social mandate to secure their partnerships via the vow of marriage promise. One may also [depending on graha involved] enjoy numerous partnerships with flamboyant or highly expeditious partners.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla had Chandra-yuti-Ketu yuti Mangala, which created a significant Kuja Dosha for Tesla. had no known human intimate partnerships. However, he was dramatically involved in a number of high-profile business partners. Notable among these difficult alliances was his confrontational and accusing relationship with his one-time collaborator and soon enemy, General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison.

Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra

applies to all nativities featuring


Public Figure Examples


distancing disregard disinterest witness-perspective toward contracts, marriages, relationships, equity, balance, fair terms of agreements

collapse, surrender, disorientation in matters of legal contracts, marriage alliance, terms of agreement, peer relationships.

Either quickly or slowly, this marriage disintegrates from disinterest.

Rahu-yuti-Chandra indicates magnified, amplified, ambitious emotional neediness, suggesting that one may be a central focus of nourishment in the partnership.

  • The partner represented by Ketu in 7th from Chandra may be somewhat drifting or abandoned.

Betrayal of the marriage promise is not necessarily forecast. The primary implication of Ketu is disinterest, disengagement, or disorientation of the partner. Depending upon Ketu's ruler, bhava, and incoming drishti, one's own attitude may range from distant enabling to ongoing regret to open contempt.

  • POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce [dominating-champion Mūla-1] + [Guru-yuti-Rahu] [Chandra-1] At her age 28, JAP married the promising young lawyer, Franklin Pierce. Although JAP claimed to hate politics, her new husband was elected to the USA House of Representatives before their wedding. JAP was not interested in socializing for his law practice [her Ketu-7-Mithuna]. Nor did she have a taste for the constant bargaining in which legislators are engaged [Ketu-7]. FP ascended into the USA-Senate and won POTUS-14. Yet, as the importance of her partner role increased, JAP expressed less and less engagement in his world [Ketu-7]. Known as The Shadow of the Whitehouse, JAP rarely hostessed to support her husband's social networking. However, typical of Chandra-Rahu-Guru-1, she did pursue her own causes [Rahu-Guru] Jane's [Chandra in champion Mūla-1] shows her fierce support of the Women's Temperance Movement, which was seeking to ban alcohol in the USA. Franklin Pierce was a professionally respected attorney and career alcoholic. It was said that she both enabled him and held him in judgmental contempt. [Mula]

However, if the culture permits remarriage, and other factors point to multiple spouses, the emotional passion of Rahu-yuti-Chandra can be a factor in ambitious or starkly instrumental [Rahu] marriage arrangements which can be expediently abandoned [Ketu] when their purpose has been served..

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry-VIII Tudor 6 marriages Chandra Jyeṣṭha = regulator of alliances

  • Devdas 1973- drama-fashion Aishwarya Rai [Arudra-Shani-yuti-Ketu-Arudra] [11, fanclubs] mutual-drishti with [Apah- Chandra-yuti-Rahu-Mūla ] [Mūla-Shukra-yuti-Rahu-Mūla ] AR entered an exceptionally complex high-profile marriage with a fellow dramatist and scion of a multi-generational celebrity drama-politics dynasty. Despite every detail of her marriage and family life having been dissected in the Bharati tabloid press [Mithuna] she has ignored or avoided most of the pressure [Ketu].

  • Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Jyotiṣika Bepin Behari

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk was married only once to the capable Sarah Childress Polk. A sober Anuradha personality, Polk sired no children and had little social life beyond what Sarah arranged for him. Ketu-yuti-Guru in 7th-from-Chandra suggests a potential for multiple liaisons, but Polk's character is described as sober in the extreme and dedicated to his work [Anuradha] . He died at 53 leaving Sarah a widow for the next 40 years.

  • Shani of Iran 1941-1979 M. Reza Pahlavi Three marriages Chandra-Anuradha = regulator of alliances

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner Three marriages, numerous unions Chandra Chitra = architect Tvashtri of communication networks, pursuer of jewels

Professor Ketu teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra tends to provide lessons on the particulate, dispersed, anti-form nature of the reality behind the reality.

Collapsing Ketu indicates frequent absences and lapses of mutual alignment.

These lessons are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding.

Despite the indoctrinations of various belief systems and their vendors, human life has no inherent meaning or cohesion. Meaning is supplied by the individual mind.

Whatever meaning is perceived is being projected and applied by the unfoldment of the memories of the native. Professor Ketu makes this dharma abundantly clear by providing partners [particularly the first avowed life partner] who drift, shift, migrate, and nebulize.

Most typically, Ketu is not malicious but rather apathetic. The fascinating, passionately sentimental [Chandra-yuti-Rahu] native may link to a partner with distancing behaviors, a studied neutrality, disinterest, or one who abandons the relationship. Naturally, much depends on any additional graha yuti-Ketu.

  • POTUS-pair-05 La belle Americaine 1768-1830 Elizabeth Kortright Monroe married the attorney, deal-broker, match-maker, alliance-crafter POTUS-5 James Monroe. JM served the new USA-government in top regulatory roles such as diplomat, governor, and chief executive. EKM had [Ketu+Surya+Shani+Shukra] [12] in 7th-from-Chandra. EKM and JM conducted a classic two-person career, with EKM doing the skilled and elegant entertaining.

  • However, near her Rahu-Return in her mid-30's, EKM developed a seizure disorder. In the 1790's, her epilepsy was seen as a curse [Mūla-Rahu-6]. EKM lost the ability to entertain without fear of being struck by paralysis, shaking, or a convulsion. Slowly but surely, JM distanced himself [Ketu] from the gossip. EKM's defended herself with a haughty, disdainful stance [Rahu]. Their adult daughters assumed the social-hostess role, and JM buried himself [12] in his endlessly demanding presidential work. [Shani]

Graha yuti Ketu or graha yuti Rahu can significantly alter the outcome. Also, the two bhava anchoring the Rahu-Ketu axis are important predictors.

Spouse tends toward dissipated identity, but this nebulous social identity of the partner may nevertheless play a role in one's total social profile.

Having taken up a position of teaching in the classroom of 7th-from-Chandra, Professor Ketu is not particularly an indicator of divorce, unless there are numerous additional supporting factors pointing in the direction of a legal split of the union. Rather, the signification may be a perception of the ineffability of the character of the spouse, who may seem disconnected or disoriented in some way. It may be that the spouse is a frequent traveller who is rarely engaged in the union. Perhaps the spouse chooses to enter meditative seclusion.

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi 's wife Kasturbai Makhanji Kapadia was widely acknowledged to be a gracious person. Nevertheless, she had to compete for her husband's attention against his many doctrinal, ideological, guidance-role concerns [his Somana-yuti-Rahu-9] . They endured multiple long-term relationship breaks lasting years, and while she undertook his cause with capable administration, they worked separately. She predeceased him.

Most likely the strongly emotionalized and often charismatic personality of Chandra-yuti-Rahu yoga has grown accustomed [Chandra] to taking risks [Rahu]. Due to their fascinating [Rahu] demeanor, Chandra-yuti-Rahu nativities may also have become accustomed to a habit of receiving the soothing attentions of others. Yet, the Ketu-identified mate tends to disorient and disconnect.

One tends to be a vibrant person with exciting, ambitious levels of life-engagement. The spouse tends to be more retiring. Depending on features of Ketu, the retiring behaviors may extend to being disinterested or dissolved. There may develop a narrative of abandonment in primary relationships.

  • POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington was a powerfully charismatic man. GW was very tall, broadly built, intelligent, and handsome [uchcha] Shukra-yuti-Shani-1. GW was implicitly trusted by the men under his military command. Despite mutiny and treason his armies remained viable in desperate circumstances including fearsome discomfort from winter cold and damp, starvation, and disease. GW was unanimously chosen by his elite peers to lead the newborn United States of America.

  • However, George was not lucky in love. Shukra-1= the growth-challenging bhratru-pati-3 + randhresha-8 for his Meena indriya-lagna . Under pressure from her father, the love of George's life married another suitor. George carried a torch for this woman for the remainder of his life. Abandoned [Ketu] by his great love, George married a financially privileged widow-with-children plantation owner named Martha Dandridge Custis.
  • George and Martha were steady friends and business partners. He accepted the role of step-father to her young children, but he was not often home [Ketu-4] . Martha preferred to stay at home [wife 7th-from-Chandra-10, home-based partner] . She oversaw George's plantations as well as her own. [Ketu-4 home base, agriculture, roots of the place of settlement] .
  • Martha stayed near her slave-labor plantations and tended to the ongoing commercial task of selling her tobacco crops [7th-from-Chandra = Mithuna sales] . George travelled frequently throughout the colonies for military, commercial, and governance duties.


Gaja-kesari Yoga

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman, Three Hundred Important Combinations.

" Definition.

If Jupiter is in a kendra from the Moon the combination goes under the name Gaja Kesarir.


  • Many relations,
  • polite and generous,
  • builder of villages and towns or magistrate over them
  • will have a lasting reputation even long after death.


Here as well as elsewhere, great difference in the enjoyment of results should be pronounced.

The original writers say that the person born in this yoga will build villages and towns. A literal interpretation of the results leads one nowhere. They have to be adapted to suit modern conditions and climes.

One born in this yoga may become a member of Municipality and engineer or if the yoga is really powerful, a mayor. The results ascribed to a yoga are subject to qualification or modification according as the yoga-karakas are strong or weak.

There are magistrates from the village to the district with different powers. From a builder of a small shrine or choultry to the builder of a large and rich temple there is much difference.

Combinations are given but the results of the same conjunction will vary with the strength of the planets, bhavas and the constellations ."

Q: I am trying to decide which of my relationships are marriages and which are only romances, for purpose of predicting my next marriage. Is it accurate to say that when using the seventh from Chandra as a definition of the marriage lifepartner, that only ceremonially avowed husbands-and-wives are considered to be married?

How can I distinguish a loving romantic partnership [which does not count] from whatever is considered to be a marriage [which does count] .

Since my Chandra occupies bhava-5, I am quite concerned about my second marriage!

A: Namaste,

Marriage can be defined as either avowed by speaking of the promise [or claim] in presence of a witness * or * via birth of child[ren] .

The witness of the avowal may be a person. But also the witness may be a sacred fire or other representative of the eternal divine.

Even in cultures which permit marriage by kidnapping, the capturing thief must shout “I hereby take you for my wife!” The marriage claim does not have to be a vow in mutual agreement. The observing official could be the spirit of the wind or some miserable creature of the lower astral as in the case of marriage by rape or by enslavement.

Even if no vow was ever spoken, if a child was born into the union, that union is avowed via the birth of the child.

However, the longer-term live-in sexualized romances so common now in the modern world, even when deeply emotionally sincere, if unavowed by declaration, by covenant, or by childbirth. are not counted via 7th-from-Chandra nor via yuvathisthāna. Romances may be vitally important for spiritual and social maturation and they may have many other wonderful and cherished values, Yet, they are counted via 5th-from-Chandra [similar to counting children] or from lagna of vidyasthāna.

If you are concerned about second marriage for nativity with Chandra-5, it might help to consider that most of the worrisome features of that angle are compensated when the lifepartner-2 has a ministry of service, such as medical, military, or care of the suffering. So long as the beloved spouse is serving others who are in misery, the misery requirement of bhava-6 is satisfied by their ministry work, and usually the marriage harmony is quite nice.

" Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;

love is never boastful or conceited;

it is never rude or selfish;

it does not take offense, and is not resentful.

Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth;

it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.

Love does not come to an end."
