[Tula - Vanika] radical lagna specializes in partnership and pairings, yoga, equity, balancing, deal-making, match-making, and mutual agreement.

Scrupulously polite, as a rule.

  • If Chitra - Spica nakshatra marks the eastern horizon, Mangala's influence produces forceful, incisive contract-making. One has an architectural style, aimed toward building of an edifice of alliances. Physicalized.

  • If Svati - Arcturus is the rising nakshatra, Rahu's influence produces a passionate expression of feeling in public roles, with a willingness to take risks for potential gain. Zeal for making agreements with those outside one's own group. Risk-rewarding.

  • If Viśākha - Rādhā nakshatra forms the radical lagna, Guru's influence supports the development of multiple alliances. Often concerned with doctrine and matters of global humanism. May represent numerous and diverse constituencies. Shockingly wide-scope.

  • Mentally, you are disorganized, emotionally unstable, and socially unbalanced.

  • You are extravagant, generous, helpful and simple at heart.

Your friends and benefactors tend to be well-placed individuals,

  • but you can also associate with dishonest people who, unfortunately, stick with you for years.

Physically you appear strong and healthy

  • but you may secretly suffer from diseases relating to the loins and kidneys,

  • and should take precaution against urinary tract infections.

You may have a strong desire for artistic achievement but fail to actualize it.

Saturn is a very powerful planet for you.

Jupiter is also very good.

Fond of helping the lowly, and so much so that you may use base acts to achieve your goals.

You respect spiritual leaders because you respect principle centered persons,

but you are often too driven to stick strictly to principles yourself,

but would rather see to it that the objective gets carried out."


General Traits

Tula in kundali indriya-lagna = C handra in Tula

Tula is a chara "initiating" Other-oriented, mutual-benefit, always-bargaining environment which enforces the yogic discipline of availability, awareness and response to the partners.

Career = profession public reputation vocation

Although the 10th navamsha must be considered in any profile of career, it can be said generally that Tula nativities tend toward careers that match Karkata themes of security, shelter, stability, schooling, rhythmic undulation , nourishment, rootedness, caretaking, protection, parenting, and all things maritime.

Also, due to the [Yogakaraka] role of bandesha-4 and vidya-pati-5 Shani, acareer in education is well-supported. Shani's bhava and rashi influence the specialization of the type of school, its students, and associated scholarship of the native.

As planetary patron of 4 and 2nd-from-4, shani contributes expertise in matters of foundation culture (4) and related topics of foundational language, song, speech (2nd-from). In addition Shani confers lineage treasury of the root culture, including linguistic values, moral values, aesthetic values, and financial values. Naturally, professor Shani prefers to confer these culturally-determined, received values in a strict, unchanging manner.

It cannot be overemphasized that the 10th navamsha and the role of the ruler of the 10th navamsha within the radix are also leading predictors. The factors of career must be synthesized to produce a prediction.

Nevertheless, abroad tendency for Tula-born is to establish [Chandra] careers in foundational, grounding, protectionist areas of social order (10).

Careers in Chandra related industry are most probable for the Tula nativity. It is important to assess the rashi-bhava-drishti situation of Professor Chandra to fine-tune any predictions.

Chandra-ruled karma-sthāna may favor careers in schooling from adult to child = with some preference for adolescents (5) adults due to yogakaraka Shani. Tula folk can be influential educational leaders and are often found governing culturally-responsive school hierarchies.

Tula nativities also lead in Chandra-related fields such as housing, real-estate, building construction, transportation of land and sea, shipping and oceans, environmental protection, and the institutional governance of these sectors.

  • UK-Princess Royal 1950- equestrienne Anne Laurence = patroness of innumerable educational and child-protective charities

Chandra also concerns all matters of shelter, protection and defense, policing of boundaries, maintenance of the root-culture, agriculture, fishing and farming, and other undertakings of a people in their place of settlement.

  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant = defense of the settled peoples against the enemies of slavery and secession; originally a farmer. Only Tula-Viśākha with its capacity for shock-healing could have succeeded in this horrible task.

The personality often displays a natural affinity for bargaining , arranging, mutually accommodating, deal-making, brokerage, negotiation, seeking balance of weights; parity, diplomacy; design

  • Contracts, promises, trust; agreements, alliances; law courts, legal remedies and conflict resolution
  • marriage, partnerships, pairings, equal participation; polarities, sexual relationships; satisfaction, equity; crime-and-punishment, truth-and-consequences; social justice

  • Any type of paired, partnered, fair, equitable, yoked-yoga, balanced phenomenon or activity.

  • Pairs of Equal Opposites , polarities, positive-Negative, black-White, self-Other, subjective-Objective, alpha-Omega

When represented by numbers according to the method above alluded to, this word will be converted into 36.

This sign, therefore, is evidently intended to represent the 36 Tatwams.

(The number of Tatwams is different according to the views of different philosophers

  • but by Sakteyas generally and by several of the ancient Rishis, such as Agastya, dvrasa and Parasurama, etc.,

  • the number of Tatwams has been stated to be 36).

Jivatma differs from Paramatma, or to state the same thing in other words,

  • "Baddha" differs from Mukta in being encased as it were within these 36 Tatwams, while the other is free.

This sign prepares the way to earthly Adam to Nara.

As the emblem of Nara it is properly placed as the seventh sign.

General Suitability of Gems for Tula indriya-lagna

Aid to three friends of Shukra

:Recommended Jyotisha-ratna Sacred Gems

  • Hira = diamond for lagnesha-1 lagnesha = physical vitality + randhresha-8 ability to"reinvent" the identity = rebalance in response to catastrophic change
  • Nilamani = blue sapphire vidya-pati-5 bhagya creative, intelligent, child-generating confidence + bandesha-4 foundational security, shelter. Wear nilam ONLY during Shani bhukti
  • Panna = emerald = Dharmesha-9 wise, world-traveling Budha + ruler-of-12 meditation, clairsentience, prayer
  1. Surya ratna = generally, nao. Surya a natural enemy of lagnesha Shukra = vriddhi-pati-11 . (There are some specific exceptions = see Surya below)

  2. Chandra ratna = no, because Chandra = karmesha-10 and does not rules any other house (exceptions may be prescribed for those carrying important leadership responsibilities)

  3. Mangala ratna = no, almost always, because maraka Mangala = dhanapati-2 + yuvati-pati-7

  4. Budha ratna = yes, because Budha = dharmesha-9 + ruler-of-12 (quite good for religious intellect)

  5. Guru ratna = almost always no, because Professor Guru = bhratru-pati-3 + rogesha-6

  6. Shukra ratna = probably yes, because lagnesha Shukra = lagnesha-1 + randhresha-8

  7. Shani ratna = Yes, because [Yogakaraka] Shani = bandesha-4 + Vidyapati-5

  8. Rahu-ratna = unknown, depends on Rahu's ruler

  9. Ketu-ratna = unknown, depends on Ketu's lord

There are exceptions to all of these general rules.

Exceptions are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and one's personal goals inter alia.

lagnesha Shukra

Identifies with Partners and Pleasures

Nativity = Tula indriya-lagna or Tula Chandra = strongly identified with peer relationships and fair agreements .

Barring damage to dhana-bhava or to the dhana-pati, most natives of Vrishabha and Tula become financially privileged and knowledgeable, over time.

One may be socially most comfortable in the advocate or peer-adviser role and in company of other match-makers and balancers, and may prefer the social environments of materially elegant, enriched, luxurious cultures.

Tula-born are typically very aesthetic, with an advanced sensitivity to balance in art and design. A highly developed Shukra when paired with [uchcha] Shani may become an extraordinary diplomat and agent of social justice .

For Tula indriya-lagna, the character, placement, drishti WRT gracious, acquisitive lagnesha Shukra will determine the conditions of social satisfaction.

Growth-Challenging Vimshottari Dasha calendar periods

for the Tula-born

  • measure from Tula kundali indriya-lagna for social-material effects

  • measure from Tula Chandra lagna for psycho-emotional and spiritual effects

In general, the most growth-challenging life periods for any lagna occur during the Vimshottari dasha lordship of graha which rule no trikona in the nativity.

Easier bhukti-pati = Shukra, shani, Budha

  • Shukra, shani, and Budha rule domains 1, 5, 9 respectively.

  • No matter how much challenge from other factors such as difficult transits or the effect of the other non-trine bhava, there is always some positive compensation for the Tula-born during periods of Shukra, shani, and Budha.

Even when some features of the life experience are growth-challenging due to evocation of the akashic-memory pattern of their non-trine bhava (8, 4, 12) the effects of their trikona will be rewarding enough that one will plod along with reasonable amounts of validation from society and spiritual hope.

Moderate Periods = Chandra, surya

  • For Tula-born, periods Professor Chandra = karmesha-10 enjoy the special compensation of a distinguished public reputation despite a very heavy leadership workload.

  • Professor Surya Vriddhi-pati-11 while not a trikona pati does facilitate achievement of social-material goals and development of the conceptual and social network.

Difficult Periods = Guru, mangala

  • for Tula, the inherently most difficult periods can be expected occur under the auspice of Professor Guru = vikrama-pati+rogesha-6 and maraka Professor Mangala dhanapati-2+yuvati-pati-7 .

  • Mangala bhukti have a certain compensatory power. dhanapati-2 can energize the Treasury (2) of cintamani = mani = money and knowledge. yuvati-pati-7 can energize the building of alliances, and connect the native to new advisers such as physicians, attorneys, brokers, etc. The negotiation skills are fueled and sharpened like a fierce warrior's sword. Nevertheless Mangala brings death. In the earlier years Mangala will be the agent of death for the mother, father, and other family members. In the later years, mangala will provide the sharp scissor which cuts that silver cord linking the spirit into the flesh-body.

One of the reasons that Tula-born = significantly over-represented among the lagna of political leaders and captains of industry = the / personality / graha - Chandra karmesha-10 , Budha Dharmesha-9 , and Shukra lagnesha-1 === all serve as benevolent bhava-pati.

Tula-born are arrangers, negotiators and bargainers; they naturally seek to form alliances.

However, it is the remarkable [Yogakaraka] bandesha-4 + vidya-pati-5 Shani who yokes the house of upbringing and schooling (4) to the house of genius and personal intelligence (5).

The Tula-born tends very much to be a good student who is able to coordinate the old roots, folk customs and established cultural norms of one's own people (4) with the channeled divine intelligence often called 'genius'. Tula = thus good at games (5) especially politics(5) and also respectful [Shani]

Workplace leadership issues for the Tula-born

  • karmesha-10 Chandra activates natural bhava of Shani

Strict, punitive, lawful Shani sees tolerant, forgiving, emotional Chandra as an enemy.

  • karmesha-10 Parental Chandra activates karma-bhava

Despite their natural, protective kindness in leadership roles, the Tula-born may become associated with a soft, ineffective, inconsistent or overly feminized [Chandra] leadership style.

  • female Tula leaders face a particular challenge to overcome the public perception that Chandra's natural interest in the welfare of women, children and society's most vulnerable members is not a source of weakness but rather a source of civilized strength.

  • Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.


Some Tula nativities contain powerful corrections to this Tula-lagna leadership disability.

On the plus side, L -10 Chandra = intensely emotionally patriotic. Tula's protection of homeland is perceived as a palpable emotion of devotion to the people and ethnic customs of the homeland is generally a trusted feature of their leadership regime.

Other compensations:

If Chandra is positioned at a favorable angle from karma-bhava, public leadership prospects are improved.

Chandra in bhava that are located 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 from karma-bhava are better suited

, for the Tula-born, chandra-Tula, chandra-Vṛścika, chandra-Makara, chandra-Meena, and Chandra-Mesha are better suited for leadership roles.

  • [Chandra-Meena] = comforted by ancestral guidance = settled into rhythmic intuition = needs contemplative sanctuary = in 9th-from-10th is better for leadership in academics.

  • Chandra-Mesha is especially strong after age-50 due to Shani = karmesha-10 from Chandra lagna.

there may be improved public appreciation of one's parental style during periods of Chandra in these locations.

However, even with the more favorable placements, tula leaders may struggle to overcome emotional softness in order to appear strictly lawful in their professional social-ordering and regulatory roles.

Crazy-making opposite style workplace communication issues for the Tula-born:

Philosophical vs. Technical

  • vikrama-pati+rogesha-6 Guru activates natural bhava of Budha

  • Dharmesha-9 +ruler-of-12 Budha activates natural bhava of Guru

Wise, inclusive Guru sees argumentative, discriminating Budha as an enemy.

vikrama-pati+rogesha-6 Guru activates 2 natural bhava of Budha.

Guru substitutes philosophical long-view teaching behavior in Budha environments where short-term, superficial, technical collaboration is normally required.

Periods of Guru = problematic for Tula indriya-lagna folk. One may become unpopular at work.

The Tula person tends to talk in terms of broad conceptual knowledge [Guru] when it is time to use short-term, pragmatic information [Budha]

The Tula person tends to go into teacher-preacher configuration [Guru] when the workplace situation calls for collaborative, twinning, cooperative behavior [Budha]

The natural worlds of Budha = commercial business, announcements and reports, short-term clinical assessment, accusative litigation, and normal daily exchange of trivial information. In Budha's realms, the Tula-born may give the impression of being a bossy know-it-all, straying off target, and creating mountains out of molehills.

rogesha-6 = the problematizer. Guru rogesha-6 produces a style of problematization (framing and describing a problem) that is often far too religious or moralistic for the mundane clinical environment of bhava-6.

Guru tries to solve daily problems from a higher philosophical perspective. Coworkers may feel that neither the staff nor the patients-clients-customers have time for philosophical rumination nor deep discussions upon the meaning of life.

They want to get in, get the process done, and get out. The Tula-born may be seen as an obstacle to efficient workflow in many cooperative workplace settings.

  • The workplace exception = pastoral counseling or other forms of human services ministry such as social work where it is understood that the client might benefit from a Guru-style compassionate outreach to the deeper meanings of life.

  • Yet, even in these more humanistic environments, there is often a caseload waiting for quick, superficial Budha-style processing. The Tula person who indulges in teaching [Guru] behaviors while employed in a technical [Budha] job may find oneself working a great deal of unpaid overtime.

Dharmesha-9 + ruler-of-12 Budha governs the two natural bhava of Guru.

  • No graha sees Guru as an enemy.

  • Detail-oriented, team-centered, chatty Budha sees broadly wise, teacher-centered, sermon-preacher Guru as neutral.

  • but broadly viewing, inclusive and comprehensive Professor Guru intensely dislikes the quick-witted, superficial young student Budha

Periods of Budha are less difficult overall due to the Kumara's auspice as dharma-pati

  • nevertheless somewhat stressful due to the fact that mentalized Budha has been tasked with revealing the true philosophy (dharma) which results in all the typical frustrations of putting the cart before the horse.

The ceremonially ritualized temple and university environment (9) and the reflectively imaginative and clairsentient private sanctuary environments (12) are NOT places that evoke natural teacher-preacher-believer behaviors.

  • Rather, in these holy places, Budha asserts a critical and analytical method of inquiry.

Budha imposes logical rules of evidence upon matters of religious belief [Guru]. Budha is unable to prima facie accept, without credible explanation , the efficacy of temple discourses nor accept"on faith" the guidance of dreams, imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interiority, hallucination, meditation or clairsentient apprehension.

The two main problematics (endless argumentative loops)

generated by Budha when He encounters Guru's two bhava of religion =

  1. unquestioned or unquestionable doctrinal beliefs

  2. lack of transparency and accountability in the entitled priesthoods (including the civil religion's priesthood, such as judges)

Often the Tula -born experiences periods of Budha as intellectually frustrating

In matters of dharma-bhava and vyaya-bhava, Budha the Analyzer cannot accept Guru's guidance on faith

Budha wants to instruct, explain, classify, discriminate, and articulate human religious traditions, priestly sacraments, and meditative visions.

Dharmesha-9 +ruler-of-12 Budha the questioner = particularly challenged by attributes of religious culture [Guru] that explicitly forbid or transcend questioning such as dogma, orthodoxy, scriptural 'fundamentalism', priestly empowerment, and assertions of holy mystery based on unaccountable or unexplainable phenomena.

[Tula ]..."Literally means scale. It refers to the seventh sign of the zodiac also known as Libra. Tula also means one's position or stance, which is similar to one's weight on a scale.

The word 'Tula' is used throughout Indian languages to mean one's position.

  • For example, in the west if someone is known as a "heavyweight" , or "a major player" , such references are in regard to one's 'Tula', position or stance in relation to others.

This process of judgment can be likened to the balance of a scale."~~ Das Goravani Writing


In classical Greek, the seventh sign = // yugos // the yoke //

Sometimes spelled / zugos / or / zygos /

Yugos = a balance, scales, ayoke, or a slave bound to a master. Yugos = a common term in the koine Greek of the Christian scriptures 'New Testament'r.
