" For persons born in Scorpio lagna, Mars is bad and will kill the native if ill disposed," says Jataka Chandrika .
" Mars is not a malefic for persons born in Scorpio," says Parashara .
How do you reconcile these?"
Here we have no contradiction.
For persons born in Scorpio, Mars is the lord of both 1 and 6. As such, he may exercise any one of these powers, or both.
Anyhow, he will exercise his power as the 6th lord if he is ill-disposed .
If he happens to be strong, well-posited, and otherwise favourable, he will exercise his powers as ruler of 1 which is always good."

" VIII. Vṛścika.
It is stated by ancient philosophers that the sun when located in this Rasi or sign is called by the name of Vishnu (see the 12th Skandha of Bhagavata).
That which is expanded
Properly speaking, Viswam itself is Vishnu (see Sankaracharya's commentary on Vishnusahasranamam).I have already intimated that Vishnu represents the Swapnavastha or the Dreaming State. The sign in question properly signifies the universe in thought or the universe in the divine conception.
It is properly placed as the sign opposite to Vrishabham or Pranava. Analysis from Pranava downwards leads to the Universe of Thought, and synthesis from the latter upwards leads to Pranava (Aum).We have now arrived at the ideal state of the universe previous to its coming into material existencer.
The expansion of the Vija or primitive germ into the universe is only possible when the 36 "Tatwams " are interposed between the Maya and Jivatma.
As it is intended to represent the different stages of evolution from Brahmam downwards to the material universe, the three signs Kanya, Tula, and Vṛścika are placed in the order in which they now stand as three separate signs."
Corvus Negrus * the Black Crow
|11th-from = Natural Friendship Community-Economy * Sahangha||
befriends "Kanya" types:
the mother's relatives,
the toxic, the polluted
the unbalanced, ill and the argumentative;
the young and unmarried; the easily exploited, who has no equality no contract
the litigious and accusatory;
criminals and victims;
those who break promises;
the clinical physicians and human services ministers;
the exploited and disenfranchised;
one's servants and animals;
those detached (12th-from) diplomacy and alliances
leaders (10th-from) in humanistic thought and teaching
Vṛścika forms a network of friendships with service-providers, and often makes voluntary friendship with one's own servants or employees.
There are exceptions to all of these general rules which are caused by the position of Chandra, the active Vimshottari time lords, and the native 's personal goals, inter alia.
For example if Vṛścika-native is positively sure that one wants to gain cintamani * mani * money no matter the consequence, Budha ratna will stimulate randhresha-8 for secret sources of funds and Vriddhi-pati-11 for marketplace earnings.
The consequences of activating the randhresha-8 can be quite shocking, including a life lived in clouds of suspicion and mistrust, being hunted by predators, minute-to-minute consciousness of the pending circumstances of death, etc. but yes indeed one will get income.
Sane people will walk away from this opportunity as a rule but if Chandra occupies Mithuna and there are other good reasons, it is possible to prescribe a panna even for Vṛścika indriya-lagna.
The Nodal Bhava Pair for Vṛścika indriya-lagna : bhava-1 and bhava-4
The nodal bhava pair = the two domains which are afflicted by association with the challenger-trinity : Rahu-Ketu and Shani and Mangala.
Vṛścika and Vitality
dematerialization is not the end
Vṛścika = re-birth = that (largely) invisible, psychic, soul-based transformation of the container of the vital energy which all sentient creatures continuously endure.
dematerialization = a material point upon a cycle of continuous movement of vital energy from form to form This energy-cycle is directed by Professor Mangala.
For Urisha indriya-lagna and Vṛścika indriya-lagna
Potential Divorce signification
Vimshottari dasha each Budha bhukti is always followed by a bhukti of Ketu.
Raja Yoga for Vṛścika indriya-lagna
Mangala + Surya
Natural communities, friendship networks, and sangha
[Kanya - Parthya] befriends
Only for Vṛścika indriya- lagna, Surya becomes karmesha while Chandra becomes dharmesha. Therefore, the Vrischika born are generally provided with favorable parents, who in their own characteristic ways do prepare the child for
Health for Vṛścika indriya-lagna
rogesha-6 = Kuja
Tendency toward overweight conditions
Tendency toward overweight conditions
Vṛścika indriya-lagna is more likely to have physically-based health problems.
If rogesha-6 Kuja also occupies the Vṛścika kundali indriya-lagna ,
Mangala-Maraka + Shani in Vṛścika - this yoga is the best for material gain because:
Mangala-Kumbha + Shani in Vṛścika - this yoga is the best for public status , respect, and professional recognition because:
Mangala-Maraka + Shani-Mesha
this yoga also benefits public status and professional recognition because the same 4/10 yoga obtains.
Mangala-Kumbha + Shani-Mesha =
Professor Shani is self-made-wealth 3rd from his tenant Kuja,
while Professor Kuja occupies the gainful 11th from his tenant Shani.
Wealth may be gained via unscrupulous means involving exploitation,
and there may be profound emotional turmoil ( with an abstract, philosophical calm in the eye of the hurricane)
but the person gains tremendous worldly power
Counting From indriya-lagnalagna, Moon-Sun always = the auspicious 9th and 10th lords
Chandra-Surya working as a team jointly rule dharma-bhava-9 and karma-bhava-10.
Due to the background influence of the personalities of the mother [Chandra] and the father [Surya] a Vṛścika native is typically predisposed to assume responsibilities for both philosophical teaching (9) and public leadership (10).
The self-concept shaped by both parents contains a high level of certainty regarding one's inherent capabilities.
When the Scorpio lagna person looks in the mirror, s/he sees one destined to guide the people.
The details of how they guide their people depend largely on the house and sign position of Surya and Chandra, drishti to the luminaries, and other adjustments to the general truth that when Ravi is 10th lord the person is born to rule, and when Chandra is 9th lord the moral and religious intuition is highly developed.
For example, Vṛścika-lagna containing; Surya-yuti-Chandra-Mesha-bhava-6 may lead his people via trade and financial services. This combination = Black Moon of course, so often the cintamani * mani * money rules him rather than him ruling the money!
By contrast Vṛścika-lagna with Surya powerful in Simha-bhava-10 while Soma occupies Meena-bhava-5 = more likely to express her leadership empowerments (10) via professional education and the literary arts. The Surya-Chandra relationship suffers from an awkward 6/8 angle (indicating a childhood imbalance-seeking-a-remedy between the mother and the father). This yoga of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy is less amenable to a friendly expression of leadership intelligence. Although one may be respected for her bright public visibility due to the powerful position of Surya-Simha-10, one may feel the emotional pull of individual creativity from Chandra-Meena-5 and act in an autocratic fashion. The end result could be a political personality which is not entirely trustworthy by the electorate which seeks a leader who is both consistently reliable and radiantly bright. One may be accused of contradictory behaviors due to inner and outer self being not fully coordinated = the 6/8 angle.;
Another arrangement might be Surya-Kanya-11 while Chandra occupies Meena-5. Chandra as dharma-pati brings much intelligence via vidya-bhava-5 and when Surya occupies the 7th from Chandra, the White Moon (full moon) obtains, giving smooth coordination of inner and outer self-concepts in the world. Professional expression is sensible to the public. Material gains and honors via Surya-11; are granted for work of creativity via Sauma-5 and advising relationships are supported via 7/7 yoga Sun-Moon.
