with Sacred Jewels general recommendation for Tula nativities


silver_scales.pngGuru = bhratru-pati-3 + rogesha-6

  • measured from Tula indriya-lagna or Tula-Chandra; partner-effects from Tula navamsha

QUOTATION Das commentary

Jupiter is the lord of the 3 or Jupiter is the lord of the 6 or Jupiter is the lord of the 8."

/Jupiter will generally not give favorable results

but will confer recognition and increase in income./

Guru = commercial business, communications + conflicts, ministries of service, helping professions

sahaja-pati-3 ++ rogesha-6 = The Problematizer

The Learning Pathway of Guru can provide a challenge for Tula nativities. The Heavy One may require homework problem sets which involve crime (6) illness (6) complaint (6) and criticism (6) inter alia.

Glowing Guru can be a troublemaker for the Tula nativity because Brihaspati over-expands two bhava which are better left unexpanded:

  • bhava-3 which operates the mental-commercial narrative machinery
  • bhava-6 which operates the argumentative voice of physical-social imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

Bhava-3 upachaya improves with time. As they grow through life experience, most people get better at explaining, describing, instructing, and conversing.

When bhava-3 holds a kendra from Chandra, events generated during Guru bhukti after age 16 are often mentally focused. Once the basic adult communications skills are developed (approximately age 16) Guru bhukti can signal periods of more writing, commercial growth, entrepreneurial expansion, and management ability.

Bhava-6 classroom is persistently focused on 12th-from-7 imbalanced relationships and erosion of trust.

However, even the satkona brings profits from healing (11th from 8) career dignity in philosophy teaching (10th from 9) and gambling wins from speculation with heritage assets (5th-from-2).

As the rogesha, Guru is quite pernicious until age 16 because He often supplies learnings that are too daunting for a young mind-and-body.

After maturing, Guru bhukti tend to provide mental-health and physical-health learning experiences that are well matched to the native's abilities.

One takes a skeptical and indeed Inimical view of professors, priests, preachers, patriarchal authority figures

  • Tula indriya-lagna typically takes the Father's advice with a grain of salt at least

  • The father's flaws are well known and not masked unless Dharmesha-9 is with Rahu

  • Disagrees with university ivory tower truths, those who claim privileged knowledge on the basis of faith alone (faith does not create knowledge per se, it just creates more faith), little patience with those who confuse the large and abstract wisdom-teachings with the agenda of commerce and exploitation

  • expands the litigious and argumentative capabilities

Challenging placements of Chandra for the Tula indriya-lagna =

Tula indriya-lagna + Makara-Chandra = Guru double-3

  • damages sincere faith; tendency to reduce all wisdom into a container of commercial business.

  • This combination can However, help a self-owned business in religious trainings such as conferences and seminars,

  • and this combination is also beneficial for academic publishing.

Tula indriya-lagna + Karkata Chandra = Guru = [double-rogesha-6]

does not damage faith due to Guru = Dharmesha-9 from Chandra, but gets the native into an endless series of confrontational arguments and generates a need to advance a seemingly endless flow of litigation often using the legal conflict management apparatus of the enemy (6) as the tool for developing [Guru] the perpetual argument

Tula-native lives in a state of emotional exhaustion due to the constant disagreeableness of women in the life * especially one's mother.

  • one born into Tula-Karkata configuration is well advised to undertake training in one of the conflict-management professions. Medicine is also a sensible ministry if other graha support the medical arts.

Thula= akashic-memory pattern of problematic relationships with fraudulent or exploitive professors, preachers, priests, and pater-noster:

Because rogesha-6 = Dyeus-pitr, thula (and Karkata) natives are particularly challenged to maintain balanced relationships with teachers of all kinds.

It is less difficult for Karkata However, because Guru also = L=9 for Karkata.

Thula has a stronger tendency to attract adversaries posing in the role of Teacher, Preacher, professor or Indoctrinator.

Religious teachers such as lineage guru or university preceptors such as the academic adviser or dissertation director will pose the most difficult challenge, as these may stimulate a feeling of servitude or victim mentality due to past-life abuses. There is a chronic underlying experience of disappointment and dishonesty in most relationships to teachers.

This karma is not a show-stopper since Guru is also the vikrama-pati-3, which means that if Guru is well-disposed in the kundali, tula-1is generally a capable learner (3), A skillful reader-writer (3), and blessed with easy access to literature (3).

  • Even if bhava-4 (conventional schoolteachers) and bhava-9 (temple teachers, guru, university) are well-supported, tula-1will nevertheless struggle with preachers and professors, and with religious dogma, which seems to not fulfill its promises (6).

  • This pre-incarnationally planned condition often presses the native to inquire more deeply into the gap between promised outcomes (dogma) and actual outcomes (reality), and to eliminate guru-* worth-ship * worship from their religious practice.

  • If dharmesha-9 and dharma bhava are strong, the fact that Guru = rogesha-6 does not ultimately harm one's religious sensibilities. In fact, aphilosophical view of the fundamental inequalities in human relationships (6) can much increase one's appreciation for the purity of genuine truth.

  • However, thula natives are unlikely to fall prey to any pretense from a human claiming to be divine.

rogesha-6 = the Victimizer

Thula natives may feel victimized by

  • those who hide their crimes behind the facade of a church or temple,

  • those who intentionally exploit others in the name of religion

Lord of bhava-3 = the custodian of one's internal narrative.

Budha's svabhava is Typically, abusy, chatty, administrating, interactive area of life that is concerned with the superficial yet defining mental process. In cultures dominated by the modern information economy, bhava-3 writing and publishing activities may claim majority brain-share and calendar time-share in the life.

Tula indriya-lagna + bhratru-pati-3 Guru

Tula-born are natural teachers and trainers [Guru], particularly in economically functional skill specialties such as the teaching of communication arts, technology and tools, and short-course education such as seminars and conferences.

Guru may be a great philosopher. Yet, when He is forced to operate in the restricted area of Budha's /island/ of mundane narrative of daily life [3], brihaspati does the best He can to express His great ideas within the chatty and short-term settings of commercial business and vocational /adult/ education.

Tula indriya-lagna suffers from a dual disability of both vikrama-pati+rogesha-6 Guru and Dharmesha-9 +ruler-of-12 Budha.(Budha is less damaging per se, because Budha activates both a trikona and a dusthamsha)

When Guru controls either of Professor Budha's svabhava, the Professor Guru attempts to Over-expand the natural limitations of administrative (3) and human service ministry (6) into grand and cosmic ritual undertakings [Guru].

This is awkward and uncomfortable for the native . One seems to one's co-workers to be"making mountains out of molehills ". The native annoys one's workmates and suffers philosophical frustration in trying to apply Brihaspati's "grand understanding" to work that is properly just"done" in a quick and efficient Mercurial style.

Thula naturally has a tendency to "make mountains out of molehills " in mundane business administration (3) and unequal relationships (6).

Tula indriya-lagna is better equipped to teach about practical matters than to act practical!

In a wifely nativity, Guru = significator of the first husband

Husband-1 tends to have more advanced traits of being diseased and being adversarial or unfaithful. Much depends on the placement of Guru via incoming drishti, rashi, 7th lord, 7th from Chandra etc. nevertheless it is a generality that Thula wives have husband trouble.

Tula indriya-lagna or Tula-Chandra indicates characteristics of Guru-ruled 3 and 6 tend to manifest through the agency of the first husband.

Thula chooses the marriage partner who will mirror-back the invisible parts of oneself. The first husband will mirror back:

Thula special planned misalignments requiring realignment attention = bantering Budha's svabhava -3 and -6.

The planned misalignments requiring realignment attention occur because 3 and 6 which are properly ruled by the detailed, specific, exclusive, denominational, conversational, argumentative, logical, one-to-one Budha

are overtaken by the generalizing, broad-view, inclusive, ecumenical, preaching, conciliatory, intuitive, one-to-many Guru.

Because Guru among other significations is definitely the karaka for a women's first husband, aprimary acting out vehicle of natural frustrations of one's own bhava-3 and bhava-6 will be the first husband. (Other actors carrying karaka portfolio of Guru include religious teachers, university professors, and one's own father.)

Husband-1 = typically good-humored, generous and religious (karaka features of Guru) with bhratru-pati-3 and rogesha-6 disabilities:

  • rogesha-6 = health = imbalance-seeking-a-remedy related to Over-expansion, Optimistic disregard for medical advice

  • when Brihasapati is the rogesha-6 = specific one-to-one agreements = learning challenges related to Guru's all-inclusive, generalist perspective. Therefore the arguments of 6 become wide-ranging and philosophical. and while substantial discomfort may be present due to imbalances in the union, there is a pronounced tendency to prefer to tolerate the inequities rather than pursue divorce or separation [Hillary Clinton].

  • via rhetoric of staying open-minded , Guru-ruled bhava-6 may continue to expand the toxicities or exploitations of 6, tolerating servitude and disease with few limitations - although much depends upon the location and other characteristics of Brihas-pati Himself, and also 6th-from-Chandra shows the full extent of the capacity to philosophically accept unfair conditions.

  • Rhetoric of excusing misbehavior as being a natural trait of men

  • bhratru-pati-3 = planning, scheduling, schematics, written communications = substitutes a very broad knowledge for the pragmatically necessary specific details, tendency to Over-communicate yet still be unclear

  • bhratru-pati-3 = tends toward criticism based in frustration that a large-scale plan [Guru, 3] could not be achieve without implementing so many petty details - tends to disrespect the need for details at all

  • bhratru-pati-3 = highly conversational in nature due to Brihaspati's visionary expansion of 3,

  • bhratru-pati-3 = Guru's philosophy is forced into Budha's narrow daily conversation container, the talk = all Big Ideas with limited practical implementation

  • bhratru-pati-3 = engagement with the superficial, day-to-day business (3) becomes dysfunctionally philosophical (9), and little practical communicative output occurs unless servants (6) are available to assist

  • bhratru-pati-3 = if Guru is directly supported by Surya, self-righteous resistance to needed changes in the administrative and conflict-management strategies.

Guru = an especially difficult graha when BOTh

  • Guru = rogesha-6 from kundali indriya-lagna (material basis for broken contracts, fighting, disease)

  • Guru = rogesha-6 from Chandra lagna (emotional basis for dissolution of agreements)

The nativities which suffer the worst effect of Guru bhukti =

  1. Thula kundali indriya-lagna + Tula-Chandra

  2. Karkata kundali indriya-lagna + Tula-Chandra =

Depending on characteristics of Brihaspati according to yuti-graha, rashi, drishti. and bhava, Guru Mahadasha for the Thula radical nativity is generally a period of mentalized communication and great health imbalance-seeking-remediation.

Because of the roles played by Professor Guru for the Tula nativity, as ruler of 6th but also planetary patron of 10th-from-5th, and the animosity of Guru toward lagnesha Shukra, the era of Professor Guru tends to produce excess mentalization that leads to stress-caused disease conditions.

Even so, Vimshottari periods of Brihaspati support professions (10) which serve the suffering and disadvantaged or marginalized populations (6) or simply try to help people who have an abundance of problems.

Ill health almost inevitably, but also professional contributions are recognized particularly in Guru-style fields such as teaching and preaching.

  • Father's brothers
  • Mother's brothers
  • Enemies


For Tula: Guru the Expander in 6th from 6th:

rogesha-6 in 11 produces an interesting species of"friend" who is not necessarily in affinity with the native but who is helpful in economic and networking tasks because this "friend" is the stated enemy of one's own enemies.

  • Father's brothers (11 = 3rd from 9th) = enemies of one's enemies.

The father's brothers = dedicated adversaries of one's enemies (including father's cohort, father's team-mates, father's relatives overall).

Because 3rd-from-6th = 6th from 3rd-from-4th, father's brothers are the natural adversaries of mother's brothers. Bhava-11 = a hospitable place for the father's brothers but being 6th from 3rd-from-4th, bhava-11 is an inhospitable place for the mother's brothers.

When the lord of satkona significator of mother's brothers will reside in bhava-11, the mother's brothers bring a certain hostility and adversarial behaviors into the field of economic gains.

Yet for Tula-1, this rogesha-6 representing the mother's brothers = Brihaspati the Generous One. Little harm is possible but also gain is reduced.

The mother's brother may have been expected to be an agent of significant economic gain, yet much less gain is realized. On the other hand, there is no harm.

Compare for example the harm that could be done when a papagraha such as Mangala the rogesha-6 for Mithuna lagna might inhabit the vriddhisthāna. Mangala can do some physical harm in the process of creating gain via enemies, such as injuries and illness. But Guru will not harm, even as He may disappoint grand idealistic expectations (Simha idealism) of expansive largesse.

  • over-expansion [Guru] of the naturally Argumentative, conflicted, socially disproportionate and exploitive behaviors (6)

  • overabundance of enemies However, those enemies produce economic gains for the native

  • Exceptionally broad web of social connections

  • but among the widely associated linkages may lurk many enemies within the network


  • Politics = Profitable

surprisingly for Guru the trouble-maker, bhratru-pati-3 + rogesha-6 Brihaspati has a shining bright underbelly.

Periods of Brihaspati = good for gambling -- including the biggest of all gambles = creating a new live child.

may be filled with many annoyances, overly abundant commercial transactions and administrative (3) messages; undue amounts of writing and reporting (3); too frequency short-term travel (3); and the expected mental-physical health stress (6) resulting from the breakdown of trusts and contracts.

In particular Guru as rogesha-6 during Guru bhukti produces bad advice (ruler-of-12 from 7) from supposedly wise teacher-preacher males .

Guru can even signify a divorce under the provenance of the satkona. However, one of the most consoling features of both Guru for the Tula indriya-lagna and of Budha for the Mesha indriya-lagna is a quick of their bhava ownership. This quirk allows the bhratru-pati-3 + rogesha-6 to produce wealth from children, politics, literature, games, and creative speculation = dhanapati-2 from 5 and Vriddhi-pati-11 from 5.

Thula natives who are in a family way will delight in knowing that, whatever the other obstacles in their nativity, periods of Jupiter are highly empowered to bring a child into the life. There should be a nice graha in either 3 or 6 to bring the best results.

Even the relatively crude sorts of gambling games are favorable. Romance (5) produces money (2, 11). Children (5) become money-makers during Tula's Guru bhukti. An adult child may be profitably invited to join the parent in a business venture during Guru bhukti. Politics (5) and drama (5) are profitable. Works of creative literature which express a personal genius (5) produce wealth (2) and income (11).

Sacred Jewels Guru ratna"pushkaraja,"pukhraj" yellow sapphire

d. G. S. Kapoor. (1994). Gems and Astrology. Ranjan Publications, new

Delhi. p. 107

BPL note: on p. 106, Kapoor includes a sample nativity with retrograde Guru in 3 for which he says," the native got a good relief in his long continued illness by wearing Yellow Sapphire because Jupiter is in the 3rd in his own sign "r.

" Jupiter rules the 3rd and 6th houses and is, therefore, not considered an auspicious planet for this Ascendant. It will, therefore, be advisable for the natives of this Ascendant not to wear Yellow Sapphire .

It may, however, be worn if necessary. in the major period of Jupiter if Jupiter is in his own sign in the 3rd or the 12th.

  • As we have said above, according to Parashara, Jupiter is considered an inauspicious planet for the Libra Ascendant, but Bhavartha Ratnakar considers him a yoga-giving planet...d. B. V. Raman

  • d. B. V. Raman who has written a commentary on Bhavarth Ratnakar says in his comments "...But the combination is quite against the ordinary rules of astrology which suggest that the lords of the 3rd, the 6th and the 11th are always bad" .

In view of what is stated above, we stick to the view that Yellow Sapphire should be worn by the natives of the Libra Ascendant only when Jupiter is in his own sign in the 3rd or the 6th."

QUOTATION Das commentary upn Guru-11-Simha for the Tula indriya-lagna

" Jupiter in this position activates your mind so much that your mental balance may be disturbed

  • If your work does not progress according to plan,

  • and if your domestic life doesn't provide adequate opportunities for the expression of your feelings.

  • You sometimes face danger."

Guru for Tula indriya-lagna = female, first marriage

In a wifely nativity, dhava-karaka Brihas-pati represents the First husband

3+6 = husband associated with mercantile mentality [3] husband tends toward disagreeable nature, ailment, complaint [6]

The Tula indriya-lagna wife is often challenged to manage a expansively cranky mate. However, much depends upon 7th-from-Chandra Guru expands both the range of her criticism and the range of his mentalization.

  • argumentative (6) - may be a litigious lawyer

  • ill from a disease (6) of over-expansion [Guru]

  • husband may be unfaithful (6) to trusts

  • consorts with characters from the underworld , prostitutes, human traffickers, drug-dealers (6)

  • in debt (6) or involved with usury

  • he is possessed of expansive writing skills (3)

  • this Guru will be lord of 5th-from-11 = commerce-3; therefore his commercial business is good particularly in publishing and making announcements

  • However, his fortune in business (3) and his easy bhagya (blessed) ability to form partnerships (7 = 9th from Guru; including sexual liaison) is nevertheless a source of animosity and criticism in the marriage

[Guru-Simha] for feminine nativity first marriage

When Generous Guru, karaka for first husband, occupies Simha in a wifely nativity, the first life partner = involved with

  • political, theatrical [Simha] royalty or entertainment-celebrity [Simha] criminals (6)

  • high-entitlement, fashionable, charismatic [Simha] exploiters-polluters-usurers

  • for political reasons, or trying to be seen as king-like [Simha], husband believes [Guru] that he should consort with characters from the underworld , prostitutes, human traffickers, drug-dealers (6)

  • husband may be unfaithful (6) to trusts due to seeking fame [Simha] or to his political or celebrity [Simha] associations

  • ill from a disease of over-expansion + intense inner heat [Simha] .

  • in debt due to theatrical [Simha] aspirations

  • this Guru activates 5th-from-11 = commerce-3

  • his business expands, his publicity is generous and flattering, and his political or theatrical reports and announcements = a source of his fame

bhratru-pati-3 + rogesha-6 in 11 = difficult - but not impossible - for children from the first marriage

Eased by Guru in kendra from Chandra

Eased by vidya-pati-5 well disposed

More likely than barrenness there may be a natural abortion (miscarriage) or therapeutic abortion (medical) due to disagreement (6) in the marriage


QUOTATION Das commentary :

" Few, if any children, or partner is barren or ailing.

  • Dispute with partner, separation or 2nd marriage,

  • daughters only,

  • serious illness to the elder brother,

  • poverty, indebtedness, imprisonment,

  • loss in business, disrepute,

  • leaving birth place etc. are some of the unfavorable results seen under this Jupiter. "
