Saturn in Magha

“Yoga is 99% practice & 1% theory.” — B.K.S. Iyengar

The first pada is Saturn’s debilitated navamsha. They are likely to work in government service, working with the mass in a one size fits all sort of way. Of course this greatly restricts a persons expressions of personal or original intelligence, but it’s great for people we expect to remain impartial like police, judges, care workers; but also office administrators, and more routine public service clerks. There is typically no glamour is this position, just a lot of hard, thankless work. Some might even describe it as somewhat soul crushing. The sacrifices Saturn makes just seems to get eaten up in Ketu’s black hole; sucked up by his vacuum. It might be difficult to see the meaning and magic of life. The wonder is often missing from these people for most of their lives.

They might find themselves with heavy responsibilities for children. This may be their own children, step children, or some kind of social services or government employee responsible for children: social work, criminal justice, group homes, orphan care and this kind of thing. They might be surrounded by childlike wonder but have little opportunity for such past-times themselves.

As a child they might have only had older people, servants and workers to “play” with. We loose this term loosely in this case. “After your chores are done; then you can play.” But the chores never end. In early life they will most certainly feel as though they are denied what they are entitled to. This can be a delay in in getting returns on investment. Or like “poor” Prince Charles, he had to wait almost his whole life before his mother finally died and he was able to claim his birth right as King of England.

The problems begin when a person is young and they are harshly censored for any kind of personal expression. Just follow the masses; this is it, look around you, there is nothing more to life than this. Later on these folks will often continue the same pattern established by their elders: checking the creative childlike wonder of others and expecting everyone to fall in line. Yes, they are party-poopers and they can be harsh cruel disciplinarians; cold and hard strict moralists; usually hypocrites.

We might note that this Saturn assets both Venus’ signs Taurus and Libra. The values old friends, long term agreements, and things that retain their values. They have the ability to hold onto investments that go through a slump and them later retain and increase in value. They might enjoy gambling, but they do not usually take biog risks. They are usually cautious in speculations. From their rigid discipline something quite unique and special might arise.

Saturn conjunct Regulus: Just, friends among clergy, success in Church or law, scholarly, wealth, gain through speculation, companies and friends, high position, proud of home and family, good health, heart trouble at end of life. If angular and especially if rising or culminating, public honour and credit. If Mars be with the Pleiades, violent death in a tumult.

Saturn in Magha does not appear to be very good for the Heart. Jackie Robinson died at age 53 from heart disease which was complicated by diabetes.

B.K.S. Iyengar’s Astrology Chart (Tenatively rectified)

B.K.S. Iyengar: His book “the light on yoga is one of the most famous yoga manuals. “Yoga is the light, which, once lit will never dim. The better you practice the brighter the flame.” “The mind is king of the senses, but the breath is king of the mind.” “The hardness of a diamond is part of its usefulness, but the true value is in the light that shines through it.” “Yoga is about the will, working with intelligence and self-reflexive consciousness. It can free un from the inevitability of the wavering mind and outwardly directed senses.”

Saturn in Magha Pada 1, Aries Navamsha: Debilitated navamsha for Saturn. They become hard and cruel in the face of joy. On the other hand they tend to enjoy their work too some degree. Some of them might feel like they are responsible to evoke the joy and wonder of this world without being able to actually connect to that source for themselves.  

Saturn in Magha Pada 2, Taurus Navamsha: This Saturn gives a special knowledge of history and a connection to an ancient lineage. Harsh disciplinarians, they are usually good bankers and savers and are unlikely to waste much money.  They will buy or build quality products and expect it to last forever.

Saturn

in Magha Pada 3, Gemini Navamsha: They might be writing of signing documents related to emancipation or freedom for the blacks, the workers, the labourers, slavery.

Saturn in Magha Pada 4, Cancer Navamsha: This seems to confer a kind of throat yoga thet comes late in life and the torch gets passed from the elders. By their investments they might come to in charge of vast lands, a regulator of culture. Many of these natives have embraced older gods and very difficult austerities connection them with dark magic, tantra, occultism. They may be “born again later in life.

Lydia Shire – executive Chef

Phala Deepika: Saturn in 1st house “causes one to be afflicted with sorrow and misery from early childhood and is sure to suffer from poverty and want. He is untidy and indolent.”

Jataka Bharnam: Saturn in 1st house: “If Saturn is exalted or in own sign the native becomes the king of his country or his own city, but in any other sign he is unfortunate, diseased and devoid of wealth. The disease will affect that part of the body represented by the sign.”

Olivia Newton John in her younger years. She has remained thin.

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 1st house: “Foreign customers will be easily copied and imitated. If Saturn is not afflicted there will be much concern for others. Self confit dance is normally justified. Moral stability will also be marked. The disposition is calm, grave and serious. The body will be weak and emancipated. Progress in any venture will be slow but certain. There may come an aversion for responsibility. This position makes habits inactive. Loss through negligence and lack of opportunity are possible. The same results will be noticed when Saturn aspects the ascendant. Misfortune is likely in the early part of life.”

George Foreman has Jupiter conjunct the ascendant lord and aspecting the ascendant to give him a more robust body.

Chamatkar Chintamani: Saturn in the 1st house: “The native has plenty of wealth, unabated greed. Discontented, quarrelsome, unhappy, crude. Poisonous glance; mental agony, billions, jealous. The native is rich, regrets, disputes, destroyed the strongest enemies but is dissatisfied. Perturbed, angry, Saturn-like looks, jealous of others property and victims of various ailments. The native is sick, sexy, gloomy, lazy, faces various ailments in childhood. If Saturn is in it’s own sign, exalted or in Sagittarius, Pisces the native is affluent like a king, chief of the village or town; learned, a scholar, handsome, long-lived and charming. In other signs the results are similar to those of the Sun, there is trouble in the nose, illusions, heart-burning, trouble in the womb and joints, biliousness, chill, pain in the private parts, under-arm and body pains. Respiratory problems if Saturn is afflicted. If it is unfavourable, trouble due to poverty, own acts, evil spirits, devils and thieves. Saturn is very troublesome causing total ruin. This Saturn can kill the enemy just by his poisonous looks. If afflicted by the Moon, they will live only by the mercy of others; but this is modified if aspected by a benefic. If well placed by sign or aspect the native is contemplative and considerate, discrete, prudent, systematic, diligent, frugal, intimate, attentive, quiet, sincere, and serious, loves merit, thoughtful, growth and success are slow but sure. Afflicted Saturn indicates trouble and sickness in the part of the body represented by the sign it’s in. Their temperament is subtle, acquisitive, penetrative, careful, secretive, and sometimes gloomy and discontented. There is loss through sickness, misfortune and

Jataka Bharnam: “Moon & Saturn conjunction allows the native to enjoy sex with many women, loves and prostitutes. They have a guilty disposition, mixed blood and are devoid of manliness. They do agriculture or labour work and often take part in local elections and may be successful. In a female, this conjunction in the 7th house will give menstrual irregularities and in a male chart they might lack interest in sexual intercourse.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be sickly, famous, inimical to his relatives, adventurous, and virtuous. If the ascendant is otherwise weakened they could be permanently disabled. But if this 6th lord is in his own or exaltation sign they will not be sick; they will love exercise, remain fixed in reality (not a dreamer), earns by hard work and is wealthy and honourable.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 1st house: “If well aspected the person may join the army as a soldier of commander consistent with the strength and disposition of the planets involved. He may become a minister of war or officer concerned with prisons. He will live in the house of his maternal grandfather. If weak or otherwise afflicted the native becomes a robber, thief or leader of a criminal gang.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 1st house: “the native will travers others’ wives, be wicked, skilful, be devoid of fortitude and will be afflicted by windy diseases.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 1st house: “The native might marry someone he has known since childhood, or they were brought up in the same house. Ones partner will be stable and mature. The native will be intelligent and capable of weighing the pros and cons. Afflictions can bring constant travelling. If Venus is also afflicted, the native will be sensual and seek clandestine relations with the opposite sex.”

Lydia Shire – Executive Chef

Commentary: A servant to the wealthy, or at least that how one is generally treated. With heard work they are capable of breaking glass ceilings. They often start out in life having to grow up too soon and may get in to crime, drugs or some other socially unacceptable behaviour that makes them fairly hard early on. But they can easily work their way up to an executive level and they can be excellent administrators; but even then they will find themselves being treated like a servant or a slave. “What? Am I black?”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 2nd house: “Unless exalted or in own house it tends to make earning an uphill struggle. Much work with little gain. Harsh speech, unsocial, sorrowful and roaming about aimlessly, the person comes across many opportunities but seldom takes advantage of them. In family life he will be unhappy. He will gain by dealing with metals, storage, mines, labour, etc. He will be unpopular.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will have many wives, will gain wealth through his wife and be of procrastinating nature.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native gets wealth through marriage. If afflicted one may earn wealth through despicable means as trading in flesh and women, not excluding his wife. He may eat the food offered at death ceremonies and wander about seeking such foods. If the 2nd house is a dual sign and afflicted, more than one marriage is likely. If maraka dasha is going on, one may die in periods of the 7th lord. The native will have a wavering mind and will always be inclined towards sensuality.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be devoid of physical vigour, will possess little wealth and will not regain lost wealth.”

If in the 6th, 8th, or 12th navamsha the intensity of the results will be reduced in some way.”

Prince Charles’ Astrology Chart – Now King Charles

Commentary: Can be disruptive to the first marriage, both by delay and divorce. Lots of hidden behaviour in relationships, partner has many closely guarded secrets. Second marriage is said to be more mature, stable and fulfilling than the first. Marriage may be for optics, a kind of formal procedure devoid of any real merging of energies. It’s ;likely they will have a strong prenuptial agreement. One may have hidden wealth and gain by inheritance, and belong to “old money.”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 9th house: “The will lead a money life and may not marry. He will be well known for his valour on the battle field. Conjunct with the Sun can cause serious conflicts with his father as well as with his own children. He may suffer from growths or lumps in the stomach. Conjunct Mercury makes the native untruthful and deceitful though he may be wealthy. Thrifty in domestic life, somewhat irreligious, he may become a founder of a charitable institution.”

Rabindranath Tagore”s astrology chart.

BPHS: 3rd lord in the 9th house: “Native is bereft of paternal bliss, makes a fortune through his wife and enjoys the happiness of having a son.”

Qualities of Magha

Brahma – Creative Force: This nakshatra is ultimately a creative nakshatra and will bring things into the world. 

Sage Angiras: his name means, he who has “sprung from the coals,” “shines like fire,” or “the radiant one.” He is associated with many beautiful hymns, especially in the Artha Veda and Rig Veda. He was a teacher of yagya (fire worship) and soma practices which he acquired from Bhrigu. He’s closely connected with concepts of oblation and memory.  His intense contemplation on Para-Brahma produced great tejas. His followers seek vast open natural spaces for contemplation and seeking knowledge. Hymns and mantras are mostly pleasant but he also has mantras for harming others, which connects him with black magic. Brihaspati and Prana are his most famous children. Dirghatamas was Anghiras’ blind grandson and father of Gautama Maharishi. 

Rakshasa:: More likely to seek out a life of beauty, harmony and enjoyment Than honour and authority. However in Magha we find beauty in power and authority. 

Shudra: (known for filial duty) Labour, farmers, artisans, craftsmen. This is the king who is a servant to his people; an actor who is a servant to his audience; it’s the lesson that everyone has to serve somebody. In Magha it could be their ancestors or lineage that theory serves. 

Artha: The goal of placements here will be to build wealth. Make money and provide safety and security through material abundance while building things that will last, grow and gain in value. Grounded and long term. They seek to restore value. The karakas of the planets will support gain of material wealth to the degree that the planetary significations both naturally and by house ownership support wealth accumulation and appreciation. 

Krura/Ugra – Fierce/Severe: A provocative placement for starting fights, arguments, litigation, quitting your job, bringing an end to things or taking care of things once and for all. Serving justice or carrying out a crime, killing things, cheating, poisoning, surgery, buying or using guns and other weapons, destroying your enemies or obstacles in a harsh way. It’s good for harvesting, tearing down the old, clearing land for development, activities that once done cannot be undone. It can be great for cutting off toxic relationships, giving up bad habits, starting a tough detox, or going into rehab, completing some act of penance like self-flagellation. Magha, P. Phalguni, P. Ashadha, P. Bhadra are the other fierce Nakshatras. Tuesdays carry this energy which is why they say not to initiate travel on this day.   

Tamasic: Activities take part on the gross physical plane: dark, depressed, dull, inert activities that obscure reality and keep us in the dark. Some kind of gross suffering is usually felt here and there’s a lazy sort of laissez-faire sort of laziness of lethargy. The energy here typically pulls a person down as it represents neither change or purity. There is typically some suffering and darkness of mind experienced here. Tamasic has no nutrients and the prana is not moving; it’s stale or dead. 

Adho Mukha – Downward Facing: Relates with research, containment, underground activity, digging wells or mines, drilling for oil, digging up the garden or other trenching activities. It may also relate with shame, pessimism or low self worth that causes you to keep your eyes cast downward. Bharani, Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Purva Phalguni, Vishakha, Mula, Purva Ashadha, and Purva Bhadra. Planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu share this nature. 

Water: heavy, cold, movable, fluid, moist, liquid, soft & hard, clear. Earth + Water = Cooperation. Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire. Fire does not cooperate with Earth and impedes Water. Air does not cooperate with Water and impedes Earth

Kapha: Water + Earth = Cool, oily, heavy, stable, slow, soft, gross, sticky/cloudy, smooth. Stable, slow, methodical, greedy. Disturbed by sweet (Jupiter), salty (Moon), sour (Venus). . Pacified by pungent (Sun) and astringent (Saturn)

Active: Planets here will actively pursue their interests. Active planets like Mars and Sun will have their activity enhanced. If afflicted here it can make a person very aggressive and angry.  More passive planets will struggle in an active field a little bit like. The moon here can make an active mind, but we need active and alert minds to nourish and protect the weak. Saturn will be like putting an old man jogging; he can still do well, but may follow the “slow-and-steady-wins-the-race” mantra

Female: Karaka figures of planets placed here may be females or relate to you with feminine energy. 

West: Auspiciousness and movements are predicted to head west during dasha periods of planets placed here. 

Male Rat: (pairs with Purva Phalguni) Sexual entanglement. “I smell a rat.” The copulation cycle of rats can be divided into three parts: 1. The precopulatory phase: the male rat and the receptive female (i.e. being in hormonal or behavioural estrous) will engage in anogenital sniffing. 2. The copulatory phase consists of the female drawing the male’s attention with pre copulatory behaviour: hopping (short jumps with all four legs off of the ground) and darting (short and sudden runaway movements, in which she presents her body to the male). In a reaction to these movements, the male rat will try to mount the female: he straddles the female from behind, and thrusts his hips in an attempt to locate the vagina with his penis. In the event of penile insertion into the vagina, the male rat continues his thrusting with a sudden deeper thrust. He then dismounts the female, visible as a short jump backwards, away from the female, sometimes raising his forepaws in the process. This behaviour is recognised as an intromission. The physical stimulation caused by mounts and intromissions can cause the female to arch her back for easier vaginal entry, a receptive phenomenon known as lordosis. These behaviours tend to proceed in rapid succession, only to be intermittent by self-grooming, rest, and pacing by the female (runaway behaviour). 3. The executive phase

Ejaculation by the male  is followed by a period of male inactivity, usually lasting around 5 min. The beginning of a new cycle of sexual behaviour marks the end of the post-ejaculatory interval.

Auditory, olfactory and visual cues play an important role in sexual behaviour. Interestingly, a cooperative function seems to exist for the different modalities in the induction of approach behaviour of a potential mate. {https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0166432817312330

Planing the Transit: Auspicious Activities
Muhurtha – Electional Astrology

This is a day to do whatever you want regardless of how others feel about it. It’s a day for harsh and fierce activities like quitting jobs or cutting off relationships. Destructive acts that show everyone who is the boss, criticising someone else’s work when they need to hear it. It can be a good day for fireworks, explosive devices, fires, killing things, cutting them down or destroying them, It can also be a good day to take a vow, to fast, to keep silent, or conduct harsh detoxes and cleans. Downward looking also makes it a good day to dig into the earth or into oneself.

Special Considerations

  • Magha is a Ganda-Moola nakshatra It sits on a junction point of fire and water. It’s inauspicious. A special ceremony is recommended every month when the moon transits one’s natal Moon in these nakshatra. Moon in pada 1 or 2 is said to be problematic for mother and father respectively.  
  • Sun is moolatrikona through the first 20ºs of Leo
  • Brihat Samhita: When Saturn transits Magha, the Bahlikas, Cinas, Gandharas, Sulikas, Paratas, traders (or Vaisyas), godowns and Kiratas come to grief.

  • Month of Magha (begins either on the full moon in Magha (or nearby) or on the New Moon preceding the full moon in October. 

    • Good for weddings, house-warmings, thread ceremonies. 
    • Magha Snanam: Good month for holy bath. 48 minute bath in salt water is also recommended this month. 
    • Vasant Panchami: Saraswati’s birthday. Very auspicious day for introducing a child to education. Worship of Saraswati on this day removes ignorance, lethargy and laziness.
    • Ratha Saptami: 7th phase of the moon. This is the day that the sun enters Makara and starts moving towards the northern hemisphere. Treated as a Surya Jayanti.  
    • Bhishma also revealed the stotras while laying on his death bed of arrows. 
    • Sri Madhwa Navami – Shukla Paksha: Sri Madhwa was the founder of Dvaita philosophy. He disappeared in a heap of flowers which fell on him on this day. 
    • Maha Shivarathri: Comes on the final day of Krishna paksha on the dark fortnight of Magha. Observe fasting during the day and remain awake all night for prayer and worship. 
    • Magha Purnima: Marks the end of snan, Religious rituals performed on this day give great benefits. 
    • Bhishma Ekadasi: Bhishma revealed the 1000 names of Lord Vishnu to the five Pandava brothers. Very auspicious day to repeat those 100o names of Vishnu.
    • Navratri: Starts on the first day of Pratipad of Shukla Paksha. And ends on Navami. Each day celebrates a different version of Devi. Durga mantra, Only one meal per day. Fasting ends on Dashami. 
    • Makar Sankranti: Harvest festival. Melas. Thanks to Surya

Gods & Symbols of Magha

Ancestral Fathers (Pitris): They are more than just our family ancestors; they are the great ancestral spirits, the progenitors of all the gods and humans. They are the great giants upon whose shoulders we stand. The protectors of the universe. Ancestral pride. The protectors of the universe. The prajapatis as a class of being.

Represented as rays of light passing through a prism: the single ray is refracted to appear as the seven colours of the rainbow. This occurs naturally after rain due to the light of the sun passing through the water droplets in the air. 

Hercules fights the Nemean lion with skin that could only be pierced by his own claws. The lion’s cave had two entrances; Hercules blocked one of them and chased the lion back into his cave until it was cornered. Hercules hit it over the head with his club enough to knock it unconscious and then he strangled it to death. Since part of this labour was to bring back the lion skin as proof of his victory he had to take the time to discover that the lion’s own claws were the only way to pierce the skin. He ended up keeping the skin as his own armour. 

There is some speculation that the Nemean Lion’s father was Typhon, which is related to Ardra nakshatra, and that Hera may have nourished the lion at birth and gave it the home in this particular cave out of spite for Zeus as the Lion block’s Zeus’ worshippers from reaching his shrine. And it’s believed that it was Hera who gave the lion an honoured place amongst the stars. 

The Basilisk: This is presumably a rare mythical creature who often appears in the coat of arm of royalty. It’s a lot like a King Cobra whose reputation has been magnified in the imaginations of peasants from a distant land. It’s like a snake that moves upright and scorches everything around it with its deadly venom. It’s mentioned several times in the Bible and is typically referred to as a real creature rather than a mythical one. There seems to be some confusion about its existence and it might very well just be a cobra whose reputation precedes it.  

Palanquin – Kings Throne – Seat of Power: This is the elevated seat that the king sits upon. Raised above everyone else so that he can be seen and so that everyone knows who the most important person in the room is. King Nimi: He was forced to leave his body by a curse but was allowed to take up residence in the eyes of all living beings which allows him top be a seer, a jyotishi with the power to illuminate the truth. King Jankik: He was Sita’s father. He also represents the spiritual passion and detachment from worldly life that goes with Magha. He passed the kingdom to his son and took sanyas on the arrival of his first grey hair. He advised his son to do the same. Years later he was again reborn into his same lineage to enjoy the wealth that his ancient wisdom had allowed to be passed down.

Antimony: In ancient times this lustrous grey silver metalloid element was crushed into a powder and used for medicines and cosmetics; especially mixed with charcoal to make Kohl. These days it finds use in lead-acid batteries, and mixed with other metals such as lead and tin it has led to advances in soldering, bullets, and bearings. About 60% of it  gets used in a mixture for fire retardants. Although this element is perfectly stable at room temperature there are a couple different processes by which it becomes highly incendiary. It typically forms itself in layers that allow for very high density, but the lawyers do not have a strong bond, making it rather brittle. They seem to be uncertain where the name Antimony came from. It may relate with the French word “antimoine,” meaning monk killer. Considering this compound is poisonous (with little toxicity) and historically many monks in France were alchemists we get a sense of where this name might have come from. It may also relate with the Greek word, “antimonos,” meaning “aloneness,” “not found as metal,” “not found unalloyed.  

Others uses include: stabilizer and catalyst of polyester, to remove microscopic air bubbles from glass for television screens and in semiconductors. It still finds use in medicine and is useful as an emetic or antiprotozoal. Elementary antimony pill cold be ingested, eliminated, and reused by the whole family forever.  It may have had the effect of killing worms and parasites in the stomach. They use it on the heads of safety matches and it helps stabilize the friction coefficient in automotive brake-pads. 

Health

Nose, Lips & Chin

  • Prone to heart problems, hypertension & stomach ulcers
  • Nosebleeds that may be related to hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia
  • Allergies, cancers, skin problems, hereditary illness, 
  • Inflammatory illness, meningitis, epilepsy, brain, spine, affecting the nerves. 
  • Death by hanging (either suiside, murder, or the foggy place between the two)
  • Depression (especially post-retirement)  

Chin 

Several problems actually show themselves through symptoms that may be experienced in the chin; usually affecting the facial nerves.

The trigeminal nerve is one set of the cranial nerves in the head. It is the nerve responsible for providing sensation to the face. One trigeminal nerve runs to the right side of the head, while the other runs to the left. Each of these nerves has three distinct branches. Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux, is sometimes described as the most excruciating pain known to humanity

  • Ophthalmic Nerve (V1): The first branch controls sensation in a person’s eye, upper eyelid and forehead.
  • Maxillary Nerve (V2): The second branch controls sensation in the lower eyelid, cheek, nostril, upper lip and upper gum.
  • Mandibular Nerve (V3): The third branch controls sensations in the jaw, lower lip, lower gum and some of the muscles used for chewing.

Other diseases that can affect the nerves of the chin: diabetes is a common one, with diabetic sincop (fainting) also relating with Magha. Magha seems to relate more with the more advanced symptoms of diabetes than diabetes itself, but there is none the less some relations. Magha natives also tend to put on weight later in life due to a rich lifestyle and diet with much fat and sugar. Some cancers can affect the nerves of the face as well as multiple sclerosis, syphilis, lyme disease, sjogren syndrome, sarcoidosis, amyloidosis, vasculitis, or sickle cell anemia. Of course, many of these require more research to determine the extent of involvement with Magha, but until that research is done, I’ll leave this as a reminder. 

Lower Jaw – Mandible: Of course many of the problems people feel in their chin also relate with dental problems or issues relating with the alignment of the lower jaw. The connection of the lower jar directly to the skull and well as the extra protrusion of the chin belong only to mammals and higher primates. Even the great apes do not have a chin. 

Vision

The Lasik founder has his moon here. Assad, trained as an eye surgeon, has Mercury here. 

Heart – Cardiovascular Disease

Gabriel Lippmann invented the ECG machine for measuring cardiac output. Denton Cooley was a famous heart surgeon. Heart conditions are common with placements in Magha. 

Medical Problems of the Heart: Abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmias. Aorta disease and Marfan syndrome. Congenital heart disease. Coronary artery disease (narrowing of the arteries). Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Heart attack. Heart failure. Heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy). Heart valve disease. Pericardial disease. Peripheral vascular disease. Rheumatic heart disease. Stroke. Vascular disease (blood vessel disease)

Leaving the body

Trace, hypnotism, astral travel, leaving the body, near death experiences. 

Diabetic shock: The rather causal link between diabetic neuropathy has already been mentioned, but many diabetics also experience insulin shock and unconsciousness. 

Knockout punch: The tip of the chin is the target for this; with the force of the punch travelling upwards just a little bit. Your opponent will be seeing stars. Of course other exceptionally hard hits to the head can also knock a person out, but if you hit that sweet spot on the chin you don’t even have to hit them very hard. It’s all physics and biology of course. The perfect strike will “explosively displace the jawbone and push the socket of the jaw into the bundle of nerves running along the sides of the throat from the brain through the neck down the spinal cord. This shock to the nervous system is like an emergency reboot of a computer. Consciousness is not lost, but all coordination is disrupted until the nervous system regains control. These are the type of knockouts, in which the fighter is lying there, still conscious, but can’t move or get up. Or their coordination is all off and they’re completely off balance.” (~Carl Jacobson) 

We can also consider the leverage applied to the neck, which, by striking the furthest point from the joint allows for the greatest force to be applied to snap the neck backwards. A strong force to the C-3 vertebra can also cause a person to fall unconscious so there may also be some connection between the two. This “power to leave the body” seems to relate to falling unconscious. Also applicable to this is that in acupuncture we are taught that really hard pressure exerted between the chin and the lip can make a person fall unconscious; but perhaps more verifiably speaking hard pressure just where the nose meets the upper lip can revive someone from an unconscious state. 

There is actually a second part of the body they say we can deliver a knock-out blow: the solar plexus. It doesn’t make you see stars like a good chin or temple shot, but it can have debilitating effects. Another part of the body ruled by the Sun and likely related to Leo in some way. Some extra research needs to be done on this topic because the warmth of prana may come from Magha. Since Swati is three houses away, the wind might merely be the way prana reaches out to the world. 

Stars of Magha & The Western Perspective

Regulus Heart of the Lion: Alpha Leonis (Regulus, the little king), Eta Leonis (Al Jabhah), Zeta Leonis (Adhafera), Mu Leonis (Rasalias), Epsilon Leonis Lambda Lionis (Alterf) & Kappa Lionis.

Regulus is the brightest of six sickle shaped stars marking the forehead of the lion. This ridge itself is called the sickle. One of the four royal watchers: Regulus is the watcher of the north, the archangel Gabriel. The others are …….

Although best seen in the evening in the northern hemisphere’s late winter and spring, Regulus appears at some time of night throughout the year except for about a month: August 22–24, when the Sun is too close.

The last occultation of Regulus by a planet was on July 7, 1959, by Venus. The next will occur on October 1, 2044, and will also be by Venus.

It gives violence, destructiveness, military honor of short duration, with ultimate failure, imprisonment, violent death, success, high and lofty ideals and strength of spirit, and makes its natives magnanimous, grandly liberal, generous, ambitious, fond of power, desirous of command, high-spirited and independent.

According to Ptolemy, it is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. It gives great pride, grandly liberal, commanding, cosmopolitan views. If rising or culminating, military honour and preferment An  Anonymous author from antiquity (379 AD) also said Regulus is like Jupiter and Mars giving high ambition, pride, love of power, grandeur of view, If rising, military honours. If culminating, high ecclesiastical honour, martial preferment, prosperity in business.

Later western authors liken it to only to Mars associating to with violent death, ultimate ruin by folly or pride. If rising, wealth, power, courage, generosity, ingenuity, rise to authority, martial success,. These natives are subject to cuts, wounds, accidents, sores and injuries to the face, pains in the head and fevers. If culminating, martial eminence, success in trade and occupations of a Mars nature. If afflicting Mercury, deafness). Alvidas claimed that Regulus is similar to the Sun in good aspect to Uranus. Others claim Regulus rules two inches below the top of the kidneys.

It may convey royal properties, a noble mind, frankness, and courage. The importance of this star is accentuated by its nearness to the ecliptic. When Mars or Saturn are in conjunction with Regulus, especially exciting events are always recorded: assassinations, coup d’états, revolutions, revolts, demonstrations, the overthrow of heads of state and similar events.

Regulus is one of the most fortunate stars in the heavens. It portends glory, riches, and power to all who are born under its influence. Proclus (412-485) called Regulus the “Royal Star” and asserted that those born under it have a royal-like nativity. In judicial astrology, however, the dimming of the star presaged evil times. A Ninevite tablet, according to R.A. Allen, states: “If the star of the great lion is gloomy, the heart of the people will not rejoice.”

Regulus marks the beginning of the 8th nakshatra (Hindu lunar mansion), Magha (the bountiful): A severe asterism belonging to the Shudra caste and favorable for acts of disgrace, destruction, deceit, imprisonment, beating, burning and poison when containing the Moon. Those born on the lunar day will be wealthy, fond of hills, merchants, valiant, and women haters. With Moon here at birth, the native will be wealthy, religious, contented, well-served, and fond of life. Rules grain boxes and the lips and upper mouth

In mundane astrology, Leo Constellation is associated with royal events, especially the ascension or death of kings and queens, the election or death of heads of state, assassinations, uprisings and massacres, currency and the stock exchange, the Vatican and European Union. — AstrologyKing.com

These persons strive to be leaders and almost make it to the top of their objective. They like to be in government positions in order to control masses of people. Support comes their way on the road to success, but just when they begin to feel the glory of success, someone causes their downfall. Something always happens so that they lose the confidence of their superiors, or the public will lose confidence in the individual. This happens abruptly and with surprise, and of course, affects the ego tremendously.  — AstrologyKing.com

Tree of Magha

Banyan tree: Known as Kalpavriksha, the tree that fulfills one’s wishes and provides material wealth. It is the holiest tree in India, considered immortal. It gives longevity to Lord Brahma himself. It’s a large tree with large leaves and spreading branches to offer protective shade and shelter. It is sometimes called Bahupada, the one with several feet, because of the way the roots extend down from the branches to create a new root base. A Shiva lingam is often found at its base and these trees act as a resting place for wandering Sadhus who will stay under the banyan at the edge of town rather than entering the town itself. Shiva also looks to the North which is the direction of death. He is the one who helps us face death without fear. This also connects the Banyan to Lord Yama and one is often found near cremation grounds. Grass does not grow under a Banyan. 

Since it’s not a tree that allows for renewal or rebirth, it is avoided for purposes of marriage or fertility though the leaves are often used in other rituals. A paste of bark and leaves can be used to stop excessive bleeding. The sap of the tree can be used for piles, pain, and lumbago. Chewing on the ariel root is a good astringent for cleaning the teeth. It’s also used for treatments for leukorrhea, female sterility & diabetes.

Key Themes

The divine rule of kings is represented here. The bureaucratic deep state has little pull here, True power is passed down and the head of state is appointed. Lineage becomes important, and life comes down to who you know. Authority here knows no bounds. They are charged with the task of rising above the mass mentality and discover their own unique creativity. Family pride, loyalty, lineage, respect for tradition and ceremony are all important to them; they honour the giants upon whose shoulders we stand. 

They are usually alpha personalities with a need for attention and a gift for getting it, while maintaining their dignity. On one hand they have this inner knowing of superiority, while on the other hand they might be filled with self doubt which must be corrected. Their sense of superiority can be founded on any legitimate or illegitimate reason: race, lineage, religion, neighbourhood, school, sports team. In the world of the mind anything can be used to serve a purpose. The various planets placed in Magha will also help lift a person up with whatever powers they have. Of course one must honour those who lift them up or they will be quickly taken down again. They do tend to obtain positions of elevated importance from which they can delegate authority. They like to have others serving under them. This often leads them to work in large corporations or government departments where they can relate to the world as one to the masses. They can be happy in any business as long as they are in a position of importance. They like to be part of organizations that have a long history, are well established and follow some kind of tradition. They seek to bring prestige into their life and their work. But without any boundaries to their ambition they will never be satisfied. They typically work in a variety of odd jobs; though they do like to have an important sounding title. Titles tend to mean a lot to them; though they may not feel any obligation to live up to titles or social expectations that often go  They can be suckers for a bit of flattery, and Magha men are easily seduced by women. 

They are likely to have a spiritual outlook of life and will take on paternal roles regardless of their gender. They make good priests, professors, lawyers, judges. They like roles that offer tenure or other protections against being expelled. They may belong to well established churches, communities, or private organizations that bring prestige. They like to work with fire and light and may be involved

They are empowered to leave the body at will. This could refer to astral travel trance, fainting or losing consciousness, or even leaving the flesh body at death. It should be noted that standing up too quickly can sometimes lead to light-headedness or even cause someone to pass out. Magha can experience similar problems when getting elevated too quickly in their life. If they are not prepared for it or do not honour the ones who raised them to their new found status then they will fall again. The permissiveness of this nakshatra relates it to Jupiter in the subtitles way; Jupiter also rules over the prajapatis. The root of the word magha relates with “might” and the very “to be able”. This nakshatra gives people the ability to do anything no matter how outlandish.

Planets in Magha

Ascendant 

General Indications: ”You will be very enterprising. You will respect elders and be God fearing. You enjoy your life. You will be expert in various sciences and soft spoken. You enjoy leading a quiet life. You will receive honour and recognition from learned persons. You will possess good knowledge about various arts. You will devote your time for the expansion of your culture and be actively involved in various cultural activities. Your dealings with others will be thoughtful, you try to avoid hurting others feelings, and immediately rectify the situation if you do. You do not care for any person who makes hindrance or causes trouble to others. As a result you may have several hidden enemies in your life. You have a short temper when it comes to improprieties, be cautious that this does not affect your success. You will be generous and perform many philanthropic activities without concern for recognition. These activities may make you famous. You will have great wealth and many people working under you. In the professional field you cannot attain much success in the material field as you are not business minded, mainly due to your straight-forwardness. However, you will be a fitting example of sincerity and hard work. This inherent quality of sincerity and hard work does sometimes pay you some lift, but not to the extent when we see the balance. You are bound to change your field of earning frequently. Once you make a decision, you stick to that decision. Your dealings with superiors and subordinates are very cordial and most technical. Hence you are able to be a link between your bosses and the subordinates. This placement indicates you will enjoy a happy and harmonious married life with good children. You will be generous and helpful to your siblings. You may suffer from difficulty with your vision.”  — Behari

Female Native: “A frank and courageous nature and a charming and interesting character. Unfortunately these attributes seem to engender envy on the part of those less fortunately bequeathed. As a result, this person is subject to barbs of gossip and all through her life has many secret enemies who are jealous of her in one way or another. This in spite of the fact that hers is essentially an honourable and virtuous character not given to either thought or action which should bring slander or scandal. She is particularly loyal to her family and will do anything to make them happy. As a result of this, her actions are often misconstrued and used against her by her enemies.” — Shil-Ponde

Male Native: “A proud but not an arrogant nature poised, self-contained and dignified. This man will command respect because of his quiet dignity of manner and bearing. His position in his community will be secure and his financial standing sound. His weakness, however, is his susceptibility to the blandishments of the opposite sex. He must avoid entanglements which might lead to a loss of dignity, since, to this man, such a loss would be a tragedy.” — Shil-Ponde

Leo Rising: “Ambitious, avaricious, warm-hearted, with a big liking for art, literature and music. They are cheerful and unimpulsive. Magnetic in appearance with broad shoulders, bilious constitution, average height, oval faced, thoughtful countenance and upper body is generally better formed than the rest. They can adapt themselves to any condition in life. They have faith. They are sincere in affection. They stick to orthodox principles in religion but are perfectly tolerant. Generally good tempered and sensitive. They are lovers of music and literature and generally possess a certain amount of philosophical knowledge. They are voracious readers. In life they do not succeed as they would like and often struggle throughout life and their ambition remains unfulfilled. They lack a natural policy and hence get into difficulties. They are forgiving and do not hold a grudge for long. They are likely to suffer from nervous troubles and are generally misunderstood by their boss and superiors.” — B.V. Raman

Ascendant in Regulus: Military honour and preferment. Great honour and wealth, but violence and trouble, sickness, fevers, acute disease, benefits seldom last, favour of the great, victory over enemies and scandal.

On the Ascendant, it will give a courageous and frank character, especially if in conjunction with the Sun, Moon, Jupiter or Mercury.

A splendid and illustrious life; glorious, mighty and commanding nature; fame, busy with many activities, bountiful resources, well known or feared in cities and regions. Prosperity from youth and in own city. Illustrious generals, who subjugate regions and cities and peoples, govern, are inclined to act, are submissive, speak frankly, have a taste for fighting, and carry out their purposes. They are effective, virile, victorious, harm their enemies, are opulent and perhaps very rich, big-minded and ambitious, and they generally do not die a happy death; moreover, lovers of hunting, connoisseurs and owners of horses and quadrupeds. — AstrologyKing.com

Commentary: The ascendant has a lot to do with our physical characteristics and the physical reality of our existence. This tends to make these people broad shouldered, strong and courageous. They will have the look of a lion. Beautiful hair flaring out into a mane. They are often able to make some profit or advance toward their goals by leading small groups or working with larger groups.  

Yogananda Paramahansa’s Astrology Chart

Paramahansa Yogananda, with Moon in Magha, was one of the great royal father figures who was much like a pope to millions of people around the world. He was well known to go into trances while he practiced asana and  meditation. He founded Kriya Yoga, a style of yoga based on purification of the body, mind and senses. He took Maha Samadhi in the Rahu Ketu period. Rahu was in Ashwini, which is ruled by his 3rd house Ketu, allowing him to fully and wilfully detach from his fresh body. His detachment from the self is given more power with the 12th lord moon in ascendant. Rahu’s aspect on the ascendant allowed him to believe he was a chosen one on the spiritual path. Rahu also strengthened his connection with the paternal lineage, spirituality, philosophy, and the global world. His ascendant lord Sun in 5th house Sagittarius both increased the paternal loving glow that shines from him and the intelligence.

Jean Claude Van Damme starred in the movie Lion Heart.  He has had an interesting rise and fall. As soon as he got too cocky and his ego became too big then everyone immediately lost interest in him. This is one of the dangers of Magha nakshatra: you can do anything you want and your spirit guides will lift you up, but if you fail to honour those who lifted you then you will fall.

Sun in Magha 

“We have educated ourselves into a world from which wonder, and the fear and dread and splendor and freedom of wonder have been banished. Of course wonder is costly. You couldn’t incorporate it into a modern state, because it is the antithesis of the anxiously worshiped security which is what a modern state is asked to give. Wonder is marvellous but it is also cruel, cruel, cruel. It is undemocratic, discriminatory and pitiless.” Robertson Davies

The Sun displays his magnificence for all to see. They are brilliant, dignified and original thinkers. But the Sun is hot and cruel so these traits will also come out when he is strong. This will not be the ball of fire we get when he is in Ashwini, but their confidence will be high and they will have no problem speaking their mind, sharing their ideas, putting themselves forward, taking speculative risks or taking the spot-light. In short, they will be little kings, bright red flames that get all the attention. They like their independence, and despite being a Ketu nakshatra, they (especially men) like to have a fairly traditional relationship with someone who will serve them to some degree. If their partner is not willing to do that there could be problems. In one way or another everyone they come in contact with will have to serve them in some way. They are ambitious and looking to win; and ultimately everybody wants to back the winner. Of course whether or not they actually win depends on other alignments in the chart as well as the transits and the oppositions chart. And there usually is some kind of opposition. They typically see life as between the one, themselves, and the masses. Some people will, however, take this opportunity to serve the masses in some way (Magha is a Shudra nakshatra), but, with poor aspects or placement  they might feel be confused in thinking that others are there to serve the little royal one; since they may be a king or a queen. They will find their one-on-one time through their hobbies which they typically like to do with a partner. One of their special leadership traits is an ability to come to agreement on what should be done; where efforts should be directed. This Sun does very well with an aspect from Jupiter or the full Moon and is well placed in the chart. Mars’ influence on the Sun here can bring too much heat and heart problems.

This position also loosens their physical connection with the father figure. The father might be there, but be detached in some way. Powerfully confident and proud.

Bepin Behari says that the Sun in Leo “will make the individual extremely self-centred: the message is that “you are the god.” In case the individual could rightly, in all his humility, which can happen if he is spiritually evolved, comprehend the message, it will lead him to all glory. Otherwise, the strain of the impulse may be unbearable, often leading to nervous breakdown.”

Sun in Regulus: Power, authority, great influence over friends, honor and riches, but violence, trouble and ultimate disgrace and ruin, sickness, fevers, benefits seldom last. — Astrologyking.com

Sun conjunct Mars conjunct Regulus (0°30′ orb): This does create quite a problem. These natives are like pompous kings strutting around and showing their importance. They are always in a position of authority, and they demand total recognition for their achievements and abilities. They like to catch others off guard and show off their superiority. They do not know what the word “humble” means. Their drive and needs are extreme and overpowering. They strive to go to the very top in the military. These individuals are simply out of touch with everything except for the acknowledgment of their authority. The Sun and Mars in conjunction here does affect the health. These persons have too much energy pumping through the heart, and later on in life when they no longer have the vitality to feed this, the heart loses some of its elasticity and strength at which time a critical point is reached. Only a few make it past sixty years of age. They could increase their lifespan if they learn to be humble, but they would have to start early in life. — AstrologyKing.com

Gabriel Lippmann’s Astrology Chart

Gabriel Lippmann won the Nobel prize in physics for his method of reproducing colours photographically by using an “interference.” Lippmann also had Venus and Mercury in Uttara Phalguni which are related to interference. The invented the Lippmann electrometer, a very sensitive machine for measuring the tinies traces of electricity. This was soon converted into an ECG machine for measuring cardiac rhythm. He also predicted the piezoelectric effect; the idea that an electrical charge can be created from mechanical stress. It’s believed that electricity could one day be generated by people walking on the floor of a train station or dancing on a dance floor. This is also used in the “pick-up” of an electric guitar and many medical imaging devices also use this. It’s often used as a kind of jump start. He also started something he called integral photography where he set up different lenses so that when the person looked at the picture it would change due to the viewing angle.

The blood becomes impure and will be itches all over the body: fevers, inflammations and eye afflictions should also be anticipated.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Sun in the 1st house: “The native is tall, distressed with wife, children (may not have any) and brethren. He suffers from biliousness, lives in a foreign land with difficulty, and has many financial ups and downs. He may not have any children, he will be happy but cruel, and will have poor appetite and defective sight. He is bold, modest, actor, studious, diligent, and is well placed in society. He makes progress and gets good luck.  If in Pisces, the native develops connection with many women. If in Leo, he suffers night-blindness. The native is strong. If Sun is in masculine signs he will have few children and be discontented. If in female signs he will have a large family and be contented and happy.

Sun in Magha 2nd house

Rules the 2nd house for Cancer ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in 2nd house will “deprive the native of learning, modesty and riches; and it will cause them to stammer.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 2nd houses “causes the native to remain without wealth, progeny and conveyance. They are intelligent, jealous of virtuous people, and living in another mans house.” “They are endowed jewels, gold, and silver; gifted in rhetoric, witty, and capable of winning one his enemy through courteous conduct.” “If there is even little malefic influence on this sun then the native will suffer diseases to the mouth and disorders to the eyes. Their fat will be copper coloured. They pay close attention to the cleanliness of the house and the orderly maintenance of things. They will clash often with their own people, speech is commanding, family is large, and eyes are red. There occurs enmity between brothers when the division of paternal property is made.” “Sun conjunct Moon in the 2nd house can give alcohol addiction.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 2nd house “is not a favourable position. Losses will occur from offending authorities. He will have a diseased face. He will obtain money by industrious effort. The nature of the income depends on the nature of the sign. He will be stubborn and peevish.”

BPHS: 2nd lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be wealthy, proud, will have two or more wives but no son. No son is usually only seen in the case of Aquarius ascendant when Jupiter has some added affliction.”

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 2nd house: “Becomes proud. The native may marry twice or trice depending upon the strength of the 7th house. He may become childless. The position of the 2nd lord in a constellation which does not happen to be in the 3rd, 5th or 7th from Janma nakshatra is highly desirable, especially if he is otherwise fortified. The exaltation of the 2nd lord of his disposition in lagna, the 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, will fortify him to the extent of making him a yoga karaka. The native will be enabled to make considerable fortune through business of occupation consistent with the nature of the 2nd lord & 2nd house. Malefics aspects can bring loses. Affliction to the 2nd house can also cause the native to not get nutritious & delicious food, his family and children might suffer disease or disfunction, and relations with life-partner may not be cordial.”

Commentary: bright confident face, politically dramatic, charismatic or entertaining voice and stories. The strong Sun in 2nd house can give an elitist attitude. Father usually accumulates much wealth through banking, collecting or storing. Or it could be that they are philosophers teaching art, music, story-telling. They are usually speakers of truth and trusted voices of authority.

Sun in Magha 3rd house

Rules the 3rd house for Gemini ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in 3rd house will make a person “strong, brave, wealthy and generous, but unfriendly towards relatives.”

They have servants, a few brothers and are strong and healthy.” “It makes a person valiant and vigorous, quick in taking decisions which are often correct. They are rich in religious mentality, sattvic, they do hard penance and is and ascetic without malice, a benefactor to others. They are exceptionally enthusiastic in doing things and they achieve fame due to their virtues. They follow their plan with steadfast mind and firm determination; they do not change plans very often. This is not auspicious for younger brothers and may be the cause of death to elder brothers.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 3rd house “Makes the person courageous. The mind becomes resourceful and restive; successful. Bad for brothers if afflicted. Discredit through letters. Sun in 3rd house is one of the strong points of the horoscope.”

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 3rd house: “Brave, surrounded by friends and relatives and blessed with good children, wealthy, happy and contented. The 3rd lord well disposed int he 3rd 6th or 11th indicated a number of younger brothers.

The Sun in a similar position will kill elder brothers.”

Commentary: Excellent position for creative writers, original, dramatic, unique, authoritative. Good for touring politicians, entertainers or academics traveling for conferences and seminars. If they are involved with any kind of team, group or band it’s likely they will be a captain, leader or central figure around whom the rest of the team must orbit.

Heart problems may arise, especially if there is some malefic influence to this sun.

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 5th house person is “a devotee of Shiva & Parvati. They have a few issues and get happiness, but are devoid of wealth, doers of inauspicious deeds and have and erroring mind; mistaken intelligence.” “There can be great fear of abortion or miscarriage. Any slight malefic influence on this Sun can give disease of the heart or liver. Their power of intelligence is typically strong, but they can be careless with the exhilaration of an holy man.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 5th house “Deprives the person of children, riches and happiness. His life will be short. He will suffer from heart disease, will roam about in forests regions; a mountaineer. Denotes difficult child birth.”

BPHS: 5th lord in the 5th house: “If this lord is in conjunction with a benefic the native is blessed with sons, but if it’s conjunct a malefic they will have no children. Either way they are likely to be virtuous and dear to friends.”

B.V. Raman: 5th lord in the 5th house: “Favourably disposed it indicates a number of sons, the native becomes great in his own line of activity, otherwise becomes and expert in mantra shastra and befriends persons of power. He may also become an expert in mathematics or head of a religious institution. If afflicted, contrary results should be predicted: children will die, he will not keep his word and he will have a cruel, wavering mentality.”

Commentary: Magnificent stage performers, risk takers, politicians who dazzle the audience. They are usually very Intelligent and like to take risks, have some fun, and play the stock market a little bit.

Sun in Magha 6th house

Rules the 6th house for Pisces ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in 6th can make a person into “a famous king of good qualities; wealthy and victorious against enemies.” “Fear of fever.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 6th house native “remains happy, destroys their enemies, are strong and have expensive nice conveyance. They are valiant a valorous and are a minister to the king.” “Brings evil to the uncles (mother’s brothers) and cattle. As strong sun gives strong resistance to disease, but one will have to experience that themselves. They will have a strong digestion. If the Sun is strongly afflicted here he can bring serious disease of the heart, cancer, bones, back ache, urinary diseases. These are typically the diseases we have to learn to live with rather than those that kill us as represented in the 8th house.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 6th house “The person becomes a good politician, famous and successful. Not very good for health. If afflicted, there will be a long troublesome illness. If well-fortified, good administrative ability, few enemies, wealthy, and generally successful in all endeavours. Affliction by Saturn indicates heart trouble or chest pain unless the affliction is relieved by Jupiter.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 6th house: “The native will have enmity with his own kinsmen while making friendship with others. They will have only mediocre happiness in matters like wealth. He will possess sound health, he will like to take exercise and will be hard working and valorous.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 6th house: “Increase of cousins. Natives maternal uncle becomes famed. If in conjunction with a weak lagna lord he will suffer from incurable disease and increase of enmity with kith and kin.”

Sun in Magha 7th house

Rules the 7th house for Aquarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 7th will cause one “to suffer the displeasure of rulers and be disabled. He will wander without wife and suffer humiliation.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 7th house person “remains without property, his body seems lacklustre; he is fearful and diseased, bad natured, remains distressed due to fear of royal punishment and has a weak body.” “Exceptional wealth can occasionally be found by establishing an industry in partnership with someone else.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 7th house: “The native will be fair and have thinning hair. He will have few friends and finds difficulty getting along with other people. Marriage is delayed and troubled. He will be fond of traveling and have loose morals. He likes foreign things and unique things. His wife character will be of questionable and the native runs the risk of disgrace through women. He will incur the displeasure of government and suffer humiliation. He will be deformed.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Sun in the 7th house: “The native has strained relations with his wife, he’s is diseased, mentally tense, little profit in business and rivalry with the people; insomnia. The native is sick and his wife suffers. Despite efforts in business he fails to earn enough. The wife is everything to this native and he losses his own individuality to her. He is afraid of the king, suffers sickness and has many enemies. Jealous of the women folk and therefore he slights them. He is short tempered and wicked. Always quarrels with the wife making the whole family unhappy. Scorned by the women folk always. The wife of such a native is not faithful and devoted to him; he himself is wicked and suffered from syphilis and diabetes and does not get children’s happiness. Sun in 7th delays marriage and there is no happiness in married life. He has two wives. Travels abroad in the 25th year, takes uneatable food and suffers; he is jolly and criticises women-folk; he is foolish and destructive. If the Sun is in own sign or is strong he is loyal to his wife; if poorly placed he is a polygamist. According to western thought Sun in 7th stands for an ambitious partner with a beneficial influence in life, promising personal and financial gain. If well aspected the partner will feel independent, be of sound moral integrity, harmony seeking and will have happiness in married life. Afflicted sun will bring trouble through pride subject to the nature of aspects or other influences. 7th house stands for love, marriage, husband, wife, public enemies, law suits, partnership in trade, travel, happiness, children for the second wife, son-in-law, relatives, ways and means of merchandise. Sun in Aries, Leo, Capricorn in the 7th house is not favourable. If in Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius the native gets the highest education, is an expert in administration and law, promotes music, art and literature, has few or no children. Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius brings two marriages. May get a late marriage with difficulty. They love their independence too much. Feminine signs like Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn brings gain in business; they fight elections. Sun in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces makes the native a doctor or an engineer. As a rule the wife of the native will be impressive, good at public dealings, a good hostess, kind to servants and helpful to her partner. She is good looking but high fisted. The sun in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, brings dishonour to husband. If this Sun in a water or earth sign gives success in life and in service only up to age 50. This Sun in masculine signs gives many ups and down; may loose their wife in their early 50s and denies a second marriage. Few children if in masculine signs; many if in feminine signs.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 7th house: “The native will be endowed with happiness through wife, have courage, will be skilful and intelligent, but afflicted by windy disease.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 7th house: “If well placed the native will have a charming and magnetic personality. Women will flock to him and seek him out for alliance. Ones partner will be just and honourable having come from a good family or reputation and social standing. If weak and afflicted is give a lonely life devoid of marriage and friends as well as loss through marriage negotiations.”

Commentary: This can be a difficult position for relationships because they attract so much attention.

Sun in Magha 8th house

Rules the 8th house for Capricorn ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 8th will cause “loss of wealth and friends, and one will be short lived. Eyesight will be defective or lost.” “Death from fire, high fever, bile or weapon.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 8th house “gives small eyes, eye disease is possible. The native has many enemies, is wrathful, dull witted, has scarce wealth and a weak body.” “Dim eye-sight, loss of paternal wealth, mental anguish and suffering, deprivation of good conduct and decay of vitality. They lack enthusiasm and liveliness and they may suffer broken bones. Gives distress and adversity in old age.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 8th house: “If in exaltation he lives long, he’s charming and an eloquent speaker. If this Sun is afflicted he will be troubled by sores on the face and head and be disgruntled with life. His eyes will be weak. He will suffer penury and an uneventful life. If associated with the 8th or the 11th he may gain monetary benefits suddenly or through speculation. He will have limited progeny; mostly males.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be long lived, unless the lord is weak (by shadbala), then the lifespan will be medium and the native will be a thief, blameworthy himself while blaming others.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 8th house: “If endowed with strength the native will live a long life enjoying happiness. He will acquire lands, conveyance, power and position due to the merit of past lives. If the 8th lord is weak one may not have any serious trouble, but may not enjoy and luck or good fortune of any significance. The father may die or pass through some crisis. If afflicted the native will fail in his undertakings as he will be prompted to do the wrong thing and suffer loss thereby.”

Sun in Magha 9th house

Rules the 9th house for Sagittarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 9th house causes one to “lose their father, but the one will have children and relatives and revere the gods and brahmins.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 9th house “keeps the person engaged in doing the rites of his religion and endowed with noble and excellent intellect. Happiness from son and friends, but enmity towards mothers family.” “A strong Sun gives a religious attitude, patriotism, ascetic with reverence for elders and teachers. Their sons make good progress, their partner is virtuous, and their father’s heath is sound, and he himself is long-lived. Reputed for good and virtuous deeds, and gets distinctions from the king, and collects great wealth.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 9th house: “The native may change his faith if the Sun is afflicted or poorly placed. He will show hostel feelings towards his father and lack respect for elders and preceptors. If Sun is not afflicted he will be a dutiful son with regard for spiritual pursuits. If conjunct Moon: eye troubles. With Venus: sickness and ailments. Health will be ordinary and the native gets little patrimony. He will be ambitious and enterprising.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be endowed with abundant fortunes, will be virtuous, handsome and enjoy happiness from brothers.”

B.V. Raman: 9th lord in the 9th house: “Gives a long life and a prosperous father. The native will be religiously inclined and charitable. He will travel abroad and earn money and distinction. If afflicted by malefic, or if the 9th lord falls in thew 6th, 8th or 12th navamsa the natives father dies early.”

Commentary: Global celebrity, central figure of the global stage, entitled to preach. They will have audience with the highest Guru of the land, and will attend the church or temple with the highest steeple. They have no doubts about their purpose and mission in the wold. They make magic happen.

After the French Revolution thousands of people witnessed Pope Pius VII levitate. Others with this placement seem to almost walk on air like Yudishtra who then came back to earth after telling a lie. They are connected to a higher purpose, a higher truth. They are comfortable and confident in their belief. Of course this Sun in 9th always suggests a kind of monotheism and strong faith that radiates power to others.

Sun in Magha 10th house

Rules the 10th house for Scorpio ascendant. Digbala.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 10th “will bless the native with sons, vehicles, tributes, wisdom, wealth, strength and fame. They will rise to kingship.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 10th house “endows the native with right intellect and wisdom, wealth, conveyance, royal favour, and the happiness of a son. They give reverence to saints and are endowed with gems and jewels.” “If there is no malefic influence they get fame, benefits and profits from government. Favourable for father. They like to celebrate festivals and marriages with great pomp and show.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 10th “The native get success in all his undertakings, will have sons, vehicles, fame, intelligence, money and power. He will be strong and happy and employed in government service. He will get ancestral wealth, be fond of music and have personal magnetism.”

BPHS: 10th lord in the 10th house: “The native will be skilful in all jobs, will be valorous, truthful, and devoted to teachers and elders.”

B.V. Raman: 10th lord in the 10th house: “If powerfully disposed, the native can be very successful in his profession and command respect and honour. If the lord is weak, he will have no self respect, [cringing] for favours, and be dependent his whole life and fickle minded. If the 10th lord is in the 6th, 8th or 12th navamsha, the career will be routine and ordinary. If 3 other planets conjoin the 10th lord, the native will become an aesthetic.”

Commentary: Self entitled leadership positions. Extremely high ego of entitlement in the work place. They might nee rulers of the land as far as the eye can see, or they might be teachers with every eye of the student on them as they make some kind of spectacle.

Mars with this sun will make them all the more self motivated, though Saturn can restrict this impulse, or at least they will work for the greater good. Saturn on the Sun always makes a person suffer some kind of humiliation or shame. Jupiter with this Sun will make them a more self righteous leader. Mercury will have a strong impact on making them a teacher.

Mother Teresa was a fire-cracker, very self motivated putting herself in the middle of a place where she was not really wanted, but fully self motivated to lead even if it was just the poor and the sick. Someone had to lead these people. They may be leaders of outcastes, disconnected, and uninterested subject. There may ebb disconnect between themselves and the people they lead. They are rather self-entitled leader, possible a little like the bosses child taking over the helm without actually doing anything. Their job is only to lead, to cause a spectacle. In some sense they might be “Karens” in their sense of entitlement to be the boss, to regulate the public sphere. I would think that a combust moon would make it worse  since they would lack any level of emotional sensitivity to the situation. None of these folks got power by democratic means and some might consider them rather authoritarian dictators. “Who made you the boss?” Divine right. Might makes right.

They often have a special ability to see the truth behind signs and symbols, due to this these people are like magicians. This is what puts them a step ahead of any opponent and allow them to take the lead. Allan Pinkerton followed the clues, Barbara Lama studies the astrological symbolism and teaches language as well as grammar. She may have studied some ancient languages as well. Stephen Wolkram is a Mathmatician would developed novel ways of teaching.

Sun in Magha 11th house

Rules the 11th house for Libra ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 11th “will grant the native longevity and wealth. He will be the ruler and know no sorrows.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 11th house “native has a love for music and singing. He has a great interest in completing virtuous deeds. They are rich and receive glory, honour and profit from the king.” “This person makes big plans and achieves success. They can be ambitious, make huge profits, get favours from powerful friends, and attain a place of distinction in society.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 11th house: “The person lives for a long time and becomes wealthy. He will have wife, children and servants. He gets royal and governmental favour and achieves success without much effort. He will be sagacious and principled.”

BPHS: 11th lord in the 11th house: “The native will have gains in all his undertakings. His learning and happiness will increase day by day.”

B.V. Raman: 11th lord in the 11th house: “The native will have many friends and brother who help him throughout life. He will have a happy life with the blessing of wife, children, home and comforts.”

Commentary: Shines brightly like a magician in the middle of large cross. They make very good money entertaining the masses. They will have quite powerful friends and will get help from the state

Sun in Magha 12th house

Rules the 12th house for Virgo ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Sun in the 12th house “will cause discord between the native and his father, defect his vision, leaving him without wealth or children.”

Jataka Bharnam: Sun in 12th house “causes the eyesight of the native to be weak, his ideas clash with the father and the mind bends towards improper conduct and thinking is opposed to every accepted assumption and common sense.” “This is an inauspicious place for sun: eye trouble, bodily pain, trouble to the uncle, losses and troubles in travel. They may be educated in a foreign country, have trouble with the government, and think about thing opposed to morality and religion. These natives are selfless, have the spirit of renunciation, are of wrathful disposition and remain as if intoxicated. If this sun has malefic influences they may suffer kidney stones, failure in politics and have to visit a prison.” Sun conjunct Moon in the 12th house can give alcohol addiction. Additional malefic influence will certainly give problems to the eyes and heart.”

B.V. Raman: Sun in the 12th house: “The native may take to an immoral life and engage himself in vile occupations. He will not be quite successful in life and may feel neglected by all. He may suffer the loss of some time and have poor eyesight. He will however, be energetic and have sons.”

BPHS: 12th lord in the 12th house: “The native expends heavily, does not have physical felicity and will be irritable and spiteful.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 12th house: “The native spends much on religious and righteous purpose. He will have good eyesight and enjoy pleasures of the couch. He will be engaged in agriculture. If afflicted by malefic the native will be restless and always roaming about.”

Moon in Magha 

Paul Gauguin – Study of a Lion

Moon in Magha 

The classics say that One born under Magha will be stout-bodied with prominent cheeks and a protruding abdomen. He will be irascible, wealthy, proud,  an orator, wise, modest, very patient in disposition, industrious, will honour gods and preceptors, respect the ancestors and be radiant. He will be lustful, indulgent to his wife, enjoy luxuries and have many people to serve him. (The classics: Hora Sara, Jataka Parijata, Sage Narada, Brihat Samhita, Varahamihira.)

Bepin Behari says that the Moon in Leo “will pine for the understanding and premonitions, urges and messages and when received, it will endeavour to mould itself accordingly: at this level, the psyche under the influence of the Moon will like to be influenced by high forces (the Sun), than by the attractions and influences of the lower place of existence (the ascendant).”

They are the centre of attention merely because that is what god and/or guru put them here to do. With such a mandate they will say or do what they want, when they want, and without worrying about what others will think. They always find a way to stand out, with their style, their mannerisms, what they do, what they say. These are the really unique Leo’s; people will not be as quick to follow their style as the will to follow the style of the Purva Phalgunis. And because they are so unique, they are often misunderstood and solitary. The “Rahu other” that guides them is typically a father figure. It may be their own father, or it may be a guru or mentor or spirit being (someone who is not around, but is nonetheless a guiding figure).

Magha folk have a way of getting into people’s imagination. They kindle that fire that allows people to leave their body and experience the world as spirit, as magic, and miracle. But this is more than imagination at work for Leo challenges the imagination; they often have an unintended side effect of making people think. They are out of the box thinkers and their odd ways make others think as well.

They are emotionally detached  from the effects their actions have on others. This gives them a lot of freedom to do or say anything, which can be at least interesting, but it can also cause problems. In relationships they might make life altering decisions without talking to their partner, and they might not even really care what their partner thinks. Usually they cut and run when they are no longer getting all the attention. They are also prone to making enemies. Usually it’s merely jealousy, but it can come to fatal consequences as was the case of Rossano and the mafia.

Magha’s usually do a lot of different jobs over their lifetime. I would say they just float around, but it might be more like popping up here and there. Always in the centre of things. They might walk in and be the new boss tomorrow, while all the loyal, hard working employees shake their head in disbelief. Their knowledge and studies can also be broad and go into unexpected topics. Fire, light, refraction, illusion and magic.

They tend to feel like there is a divine plan whether good or bad is flowing from their actions; they remain ever proud and arrogant; poised and dignified. Loss of dignity and pride is probably the worst thing that can happen to them, but they also don’t like to be ignored. Drinking can be especially problematic of Magha’s partly because the opportunity to lose our dignity goes up when we drink, but also because Magha people are already prone to leaving their body so blacking out may be more common for them. Besides, they can already be prone to the all or nothing philosophy that is often inspired by drink. Many Magha folks are involved with gambling and casinos and I suspect they like daredevils who risk everything. And they don’t even mind so much if they lose, after all, it’s God’s plan either way.

At some point in their life they will feel the call to do the honourable thing.  They may go back and seek out their lineage if it was lost to them. They do best on a clean and sober spiritual path that allows them to heed the call. Their vision is without limits, anything is possible. This can also make them seem a little wandery and detached. They certainly won’t be doing what everyone else is doing. They are happy to do their own thing. And since others will usually not understand what it is that makes these Magha folks tick, they will invent their own stories about them. Maghas can be a little bit of a blank screen for others to project their ideas upon. They problem is that they are usually blamed for those projections later. This can be another hurdle in durable romantic relationships. Very often a Magha native will choose celibacy over the drama of relationships.

Moon in Regulus: Occult interests, powerful friends, danger from enemies and false friends, gain by speculation, public prominence, great power, honour, wealth, benefits seldom last, violence, trouble and sickness. It makes women high-spirited and independent. If at the same time, the Sun is with the Dragon’s Head in Gemini, or Jupiter is in the 10th house in trine to Mars and the Sun is with the Dragon’s Head, great preferment even from the lowest sphere to high rank. A splendid and illustrious life; great, distinguished and opulent nature. — AstrologyKing.com

Moon in Magha Pada 1, Aries NavamshaAs a result of even bad publicity their ego gets bigger. They will likely get some mysterious favour from authority and be treated like the good son and their behaviours may be excused as boys being boys. They are usually cruel, selfish, warlike people, good at deception but often ill with fever or some other attack of heat. 

Moon in Magha Pada 2, Taurus NavamshaThe moon gets extra power here since he becomes exalted in the navamsha. They are known to be long lived and very wealthy. They are typically quite strong, like a bull and have many children, possibly illegitimate, due to their strong fertility, They can also be especially fixed and stubborn in doing what they want. They might be some kind of family head or kubra figure taking care of the family wealth. 

Moon in Magha Pada 3, Gemini Navamsha: They are chatty and flirty and can become the darlings of the media. They make friends quickly, they are usually very intelligent and have good communication. Gemini will influence their pride so they will like to maintain dignity with the media. Trump loved the media attention since it allowed him to get his message out. Now that he is being ignored by them his motivation seems to be waning. They are typically truthful though they might come to believe the stories about themselves. They often become experts in their field meeting with small groups of inventors or others with speculative potential. These small groups are a way for them to “hold court.”

Moon in Magha Pada 4, Cancer Navamsha: They become parental in their rule. Expressing the hard masculine exterior while remaining ultimately carrying and sensitive at heart. They usually support the local and family gods, Brahmins, and mystics. They are ultimately sheltering and protective and will likely be land owners or homeowners with many “children” who are not their own.

Moon in Magha 1st house

Rules the 12th house for Leo ascendant.

Phala Deepika: “Waxing moon in 1st house provides and strong body and long life, power, wealth and freedom from fear.” Waning moon in 1st house is “just the opposite.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in the 1st house “with malefic influence causes the native to lack restraint and do base and evil deeds, they may be deaf or dumb, disabled.” Malefic influences will have a powerful effect on both moon and ascendant when the moon is here as there is no secondary ascendant to defuse some of the affliction, so even minor afflictions may be acutely felt.” 

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 1st house: “The native becomes fanciful and romantic, a moderate eater. Considerable restlessness is usually tempered by an easy-going disposition. The fortune is generally changing. It makes one an idealist, a great traveller and explore. If conjunct Saturn, the mind will always be worried. If with Mars, women will suffer mensural disorders. Sociability tends to be a strong feature. He will be successful in professions that bring him in contact with the masses. Conjunct Rahu can give hysterical tendencies. Conjunct Jupiter elevates the mind.”

BPHS: 12th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be spendthrift, weak constitution, will suffer phlegmatic conditions and be devoid of wealth and learning. Native is not disposed to greed or avarice.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 1st house: “The native will have a weak constitution and will be feeble-minded. He will, however, be handsome and sweet tongued. If it’s a common sign the native will generally be wandering about. If conjunct the 6th lord, the native will have a long life unless the 8th house is also afflicted. This can also indicate imprisonment or living abroad. If 12th & 1st lords exchange signs the native will be miser, hated by all and devoid of intelligence.”

Commentary: Moon in ascendant gives people. familiar face, and, baring harsh aspects, makes them emotionally sensitive, caring, and kind. They will be personal identified with a foreign culture through dress, look, speech, and mannerisms. They might be like figures from another world, associated with sanctuary and retreat from the world. The combined influence of 12th houses and Ketu’s rulership of Magha can make them seem almost unreal, like figments of the imagination, like angels who come to us in dreams.

Moon in Magha 2nd house

Rules the 1st house for Cancer ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in the 2nd will make one “rich, very learned, soft spoken, blessed with all worldly pleasures, but occasionally stammering.”

Jataka Bharnam: “Full moon in 2nd house brings prosperity, happiness, humility, progeny, good looks and wealth. Slim moon in 2nd causes the native to be a liar, penurious, has little intelligence, lacks foresight and has a narrow outlook on life. He cannot estimate his means, resources, or the situation in order to do anything or turn a profit.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 2nd house: “Will have a large family and enjoy much happiness. Money will be obtained through females. The financial position will be somewhat variable, will have a fair complexion. Dhundiraja says the native will be reserved and not much sociable, squint eyes and much admired.”

BPHS: 1st lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be gainful, learned, happy, good natures, religious minded, honourable with good qualities  and many wives. The native will be economic minded with profit giving commercial projects. He has marvellous foresight with great power of examination and observation. His inferences are capable of giving a far reaching result and his plans are successful.”

B.V. Raman: 1st lord in the 2nd house: “There will be more gains, teased or worried by enemies, good character, respectable and generous hearted. Well aspected will allow him to gladly discharge his duties to kith and kin; and he will be ambition. He will possess prominent eyes and be blessed with forethought.”

Moon in Magha 3rd house

Rules the 2nd house for Gemini ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 3rd supports “lascivious brothers, gives one strength but makes very miserly.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 3rd house “tends to make a person violent, given to pride, miserly, lacking intelligence, dependent on relatives, devoid of kindness but without fear. If Moon is full they will have vitality and vigour, an invisible desire to live, and strength to fight against disease. If a slim moon has malefic influence here, the native is stupid, insolent, impolite, making decisions without thinking.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 3rd house “Changes in occupation are common, fond of traveling and active minded. Wife will be fair. The native possesses good knowledge, but is rather indifferent to spiritual values of life. Subordinate to wife and attached to children. If moon is waning one will be cruel, miserable, impious and unscrupulous. An unfavourable position for peace of mind if afflicted.”

BPHS: 2nd lord in the 3rd house: “The native will be a man of valour, wise, virtuous, lustful and miserly if there are benefic influences. If influenced by malefic circumstance, the native will be heterodox. If conjunct the 3rd lord and with a malefic planet the native will have no fear of god. A malefic planet in the 3rd house depends more on ones own valour than on fate or god. Due to his courage he does not amass money but reinvests it in trade for expansion and development. For Aries ascendant the native maybe a multi-trader due to the multiplicity symbolised by Gemini.”

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 3rd house: “Brave, intelligent, good-natured but deprived character. Atheistic tendencies will be rampant and they will becomes addicted to luxuries. Later in life he turns out to be a miser. If well-fortified he will be benefited by his sisters, by learning fine arts, music, dance. He will indulge in prorating Kshudra Devatas or evil spirits.”

Albert Speer is infamously known as “The Good Nazi.”

Moon Mahadasha: Sept 1932 – Sept 1942: Hitler gained power in 1933 and immediately made Speer the chief architect. The Nazi Propaganda event known as the Nuremberg Rally of 1934 (Moon – Rahu) was mostly his invention. He was continuously promoted by Hitler and in 1942 he was put in charge of armaments and munitions.

They get the affection and cooperation of their mother, conveyance, cattle, mental peace and good health.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 4th house “Possesses house, deprives happiness from relatives; will be cheerful and contented; becomes important as a leader or a ruler; proud and somewhat quarrelsome. If the moon is also afflicted, there will be early separation from mother. Unless aspected by Jupiter, he will have a fondness for sensual pleasures.”

BPHS: 3rd lord in the 4th house: “The native will be happy wealthy and intelligent but will acquire a vicious wife. Debilitated Jupiter here can bring about the death of the native brother, cause trouble for the mother, disturb the marital life of the father, and bring about mental troubles for oneself. Mercury or Jupiter debilitated here can bring course cases involving immovable property; many cases for debilitated Mercury. For Cancer or Capricorn ascendant the native will be involved with the purchase and sale of properties in other cities than his own. Virgo and Pisces ascendants may suffer addiction due to the natives effort to study occult science.”

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 4th house: “Life will be happy on the whole. He becomes rich and learned, but the wife will be cruel hearted and mean. When well-fortified while the lord of 9th and lagna are weak, his brother will survive him. He will have step brothers if the 9th lord is strong. When Mars is weak he will lose his lands and will have to live in others houses. Evil results will be minimised if the 3rd lord in beneficially disposed.”

This native will have poor relations with their mother and many enemies. They lack appetite and tend towards professions which demand less enterprise, have a fondness for litigation, a smaller family, and a weak body. They can be fierce and practical.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 6th house “Indicates balarishta: much ill-health in childhood. Affliction by Mars or Saturn bring curious or incurable disease and vengeful enemies. The moon strong denotes ability and success in subordinate positions. If 6th house is a fixed sign the person will suffer from stone in the bladder; he will be submissive to women; weak sexual connection and stomach troubles. Afflicted in common signs bring lung problems. He will have success as a caterer.”

BPHS: 5th lord in the 6th house: “The natives sons will be equal to his enemies, or [he] will die, or the native will acquire a son by adoption or purchase. Obstacles to producing a son may be the result of some disease. If there is additional malefic influence here the native will have no issues, and if a child is born it will not live for long. For Leo ascendant this effect is felt in a particularly cruel way.”

B.V. Raman: 5th lord in the 6th house: “If favourably disposed, one’s maternal uncle will be a famous man. The native will have enmity with his own sons. If afflicted no children will be born and he may have to adopt from is uncles line.”

If Moon is waning he will always be quarrelling with enemies.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 7th house: “The native will be devoid of happiness through wedlock, but will be famous, virtuous, honourable, adventurous and wealthy. Three will be constant tension, quarrelling and fighting with partners and married life can be hell. For Aries and Libra ascendant it is errors of the native himself that cause disharmony as he may deliberately stir up trouble due to the effort of 3rd lord.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 7th house: “Generally marries mothers brother or father’s sisters daughter. The maternal uncle lives in a far-off place or foreign country. Wife’s character will be doubtful. If afflicted they will either divorce early or the wife will die. If involved with hermaphrodite Rashi here or in navamsha he will have a sickly or barren wife.

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 8th house: “When well-placed marriage may take place with relatives of the native may marry a rich partner. Affliction will cause the early death of partner while the native may die in distant lands. It gives a sickly and ill-tempered partner leading to estrangement and separation.”

Moon in Magha 9th house

Rules the 8th house for Sagittarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 9th house makes one “affluent, virtuous, blessed with children; he is victorious and all his enterprise is crowned with success from the outset.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 9th house “endows the native with wife and sone, a fondness for Puranic literature and stories, and a desire to do auspicious deeds and go on pilgrimage.” “People, especially women will have a feeling of respect and reverence around such a person.

The native gains lands, conveyances, harmonious atmosphere in domestic life, physical pleasures and comforts. There are many rises and falls in their life.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 9th house: “The native will be fortunate and prosperous. He will have many sons, friends and kinsmen. He will be principled and generous minded. If Saturn, Mars, and Mercury aspect he will become a ruler. If Moon combines with Mars there could be a fatal injury to mother. If Venus conjoins Moon he may live an immoral life. He will act in league with his step-mother. Saturn with this Moon causes on e to suffer much. The native may build charitable institutions. He will acquire good immovable property and visit foreign countries.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be a betrayer of his religion and a heterodox. He will be the husband of a wicked wife and will steal the wealth of others. AS belief in his own religion is destroyed he comes to believe in gods of a lower order: ghosts, pishacha, jinx, etc. Once morality is lost is can be easy to steal from others. If Jupiter is debilitated the affliction against religion will be especial strong: atheist, heterodox despite being born from a brahmin or religious family. He will eat prohibited substances.” (The 5M’s are traditionally prohibited: 1. Meat, 2. Fish, 3. Wine, 4. Parched grain 5. Sexual intercourse)

If the Sun is also afflicted the father may die in periods of the 9th lord. If conjoined by benefics the native acquires fathers property and relations with him will be harmonious. If the 9th lord is weak, the native suffers all kinds of hardships, misery and unhappiness. His friends and kinsmen will desert him while his superiors will find fault with him. If the 8th lord falls in the 6th, 8th or 12th navamsha the evil results will be greatly reduced.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 10th house: “The native will be religious, wealthy, intelligent, bold. He will succeed in all endeavours. He will obtain corn, ornaments, women and be skilful in the arts.

Mars in Magha 

Sun – Ketu : Laser Eye Surgery

They have a lot of fire or spark in their eyes. They may be the type to go all in, all or nothing. They tend to have a lot of ambition.  They may have pride in coming from a lineage of warriors. Many of them serve in the military at some point of their lives. They likely know how to handle fire, weapons and guns, but also light, diffusers, reflectors, refractors. They are able to make a great spectacle with fire. Guy Fox is certainly a fine example of this as bonfires and fireworks are still used to celebrate his failed insurrection. Their ancestors come to them in the form of competitors, warriors, men, engineers, and people working with fire and steel. Your job is to honour them. Women with this placement will be well protected by the men in their life. Leaders with Mars in Magha will be beloved by their military if they honour them. And one must treat their competitors with respect and honour; they only come to give you the stage and lift you up. And it often doesn’t matter if you win or lose; the honour and dignity you offer to the competition is the test.

Aggressive and penetrating rays of light attested to by the founder of Lasik, Lucy London also has a Master in Lighting Design and she’s also a water colour painter. Guy Fawkes had planned to blow up parliament and is celebrated annually with huge bonfires in the street and fireworks. We can only imagine the kinds of light show exhibited by the kings and leaders of massive field armies. Turner’s paintings are also filled with light as well as rays of light.

There seems to be an overall celebration of masculinity with this placement: men, military, engineering, strength, power, heroic action. They can be active in the spotlight, on stage, in celebrity culture. Good theatre actors; theatrical. Always seeking new conquest, showing off. They act like the king. If Sun is well placed they could be on par with kings. The can have a very sharp, critical, firm mind; rashness can be a curse or a blessing for these folks. They are good leaders, intense and can gain through speculation or insurance. Very enthusiastic and adventurous. They are very active with fresh new celebrated things like new music or movies. They are most active in the forest or mountain regions. Mars in Magha might even have an appreciation for camouflage, a kind of illusion in the forest. Of course at other times they might dawn hunter orange to ensure that they are fully visible in the forest. Family life often suffers due to their career. Loss of first spouse is common. This can be a difficult person for others to deal with as there is a sense of entitlement to their sense of power and their activities. They can be very dominating people. They are not likely to compromise in their action.

We might see in a woman’s chart that it’s actually the men in her life (brothers, boyfriends), or perhaps these are the types of competitors one faces who have the dominating and entitled sense of drive and ambition. Ether way, it takes a powerful woman to deal with powerful men, and a powerful person to deal with full power competition.

Mars in Regulus: Honour, fame, strong character, public prominence, high military command. 0°30′ orb: This is one who takes command and gives orders. These persons work well in the military and can achieve high goals and honours here. The commanding personality extends even to their love life, since everyone is merely a stepping stone for their pleasures and ego.

Gambling: Rand Paul supports deregulation in casinos and gambling, Donald Trump is owner of a Casino empire. Johnny Depp played in Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. Kevin Spacey?? also starred in Casino Jack. Ben Affleck has struggled with gambling addiction most of his life.

Tea Field once described herself as being a descendant of tribal viking warrior princesses. She was a big girl with rippling muscles, wide shoulders and big hands. She’s bright she shines everywhere, goes. She has Venus in her ascendant so she’s also stylish and beautiful. Really unique, one of a kind person. A master of Rolfing massage who travels the world taking care of her clients. Rolfing, I should point out, is a fairly physically painful and psychologically intense deep tissue massage. She is also trained in acupuncture.

They might ultimately end up with Cushing’s, low testosterone, or some other debility related to “men’s issues.” Violence, aggression, passive aggression might get the best of them. Possibly alcohol related defensiveness. A kind of “little man’s syndrome” might develop causing them to use happiness and celebration as a kind of emotional weapon. William Vollman practically celebrates violence in has masterful book, “Rising Up & Rising Down: Thoughts on violence, death and urgent means.” We could say that the women with this placement might have to put up with such passive aggressive or emotionally manipulative men in their lives. If Jupiter in well placed their marriage experience is likely to be better than their dating experience. Several of the people with this placement were rights activists working to give more rights to minorities, disabled people, or women that that average person does not have. Their sense of care and protection becomes weaponised.

Mars in Magha 1st house

Rules the 4th & 9th houses for Leo ascendant.

Chandr-Mangala Yoga: Moon conjunct Mars (or in mutual aspect): “The person deals with drinks, earthen jars, crude instruments and women. There is disobedience in the mother. One has good ear-ring, accumulates wealth (possibly by illegitimate means or appealing to the baser needs of men unless aspected by Jupiter).”

Phala Deepika: Mars in 1st house causes one to “suffer broken limbs, they are short lived, cruel and adventurous.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 1st house “will cause the native to have hallucinations, his body will have marks or wounds, he will be very courageous, enthusiastic and extremist in nature; given to roving and wandering.” “Malefic influences on this Mars will certainly give cuts, burns and marks to the body; possibly from small pox or eruptions of the skin. They might fear being wounded by fire or weapons. This is not good for the health of the natives wife and the person has to work extra hard for success.”

Jataka Bharnam: “When Moon & Mars are conjoined the native is devoid of good conduct, crooked, valorous, a trader, makes quarrels, opposes his mother, has pains due to disease. The native is energetic, enthusiastic assiduous and rash. Not auspicious for married life. If conjunction occurs in 1st, 8th, 10th, or 11th house it can make the native descent from noble ancestors and very strong. In other houses they are devoid of wealth. If Saturn also aspects this combination they will have incurable blood disease.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 1st house: “Give a hot constitution, courage, self-confidence and enterprise. The native will possess practical ability and love liberty and independence. He becomes reckless of danger, scorning defeat. The gives a somewhat rash nature. The body will have scars and the appearance will be handsome. The domestic life will be unhappy unless there are other favourable combinations. Abuse of physical resources may lead to ill-health. There is proneness to accidents. Danger of cuts, burns, etc. are likely.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Mars in 1st house: “The native has danger from iron weapons and fire; mental grief and death of dear ones including his own wife. He suffers from head and eye ailments and success is denied to him despite his best efforts and lion-like courage. He will be irreligious but supporting righteousness. If in masculine sign, he will have fiery nature, will be amorous, aggressive, defensive, rash, head-strong, forceful, impatient; he will suffer from burns, scalds, injuries from falling, gastritis, biliousness, and teething problems in childhood. The native gets wounds on his body, he is strong, built, thieving, reformative, has a large navel, red hands, is impressive, brave, powerful, stupid, angry, choleric, wealthy, playful, strange ailments, cruel. He will be ugly, sick, friendless, penniless, a liar, adulterous. The native suffers mental unrest, wounds, injuries on the head, the private parts, or the part of the body indicated by the sign. Mars rules the muscular system and urino-genital organs, feverish, inflammatory troubles, small-pox and oils in childhood. These are indicated if Mars is in power. The native is handsome if Mars is retrograde. If associated with a malefic or enemy planet he will have a short life, few children, biliousness and an ugly look. If in enemy sign or associated with a malefic he will suffer eye problems. Adultery if Mars is in other than Cancer, Leo or Pisces. If in fire signs Aries, Leo or Sagittarius he will get head-aches and blood infections; he will be merciless and invincible; antagonising friends and foes, bad tempered, lean, without wife and children and will be a wanderer. He is a back-biter, lean, vicious, dark-complexioned, mean, dirty looking, indiscriminate in sex and always inviting trouble for himself if Mars is in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius. If in Aries, Leo, Cancer, Scorpio or Sagittarius the native has lion-like courage which makes for a good police inspector. If aspected of associated with Saturn, this mars can be very good for bribes. If Mars is in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer or Scorpio. In Cancer, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Pisces he will have a few trusted friends. A sailor, drunkard, debauchee and well balanced if in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. If in Cancer the native shows industry for living and promotion. In Leo, it’s only by chance. If Mars is exalted or in own sign the native with have a strong, healthy body, royal favour and reputation, longevity. Mars in the first makes the native run after every kind of profession until age 36 when he will establish himself faithfully to any one. Vainly considers himself superior to others. Should be a doctor; it will make him an able surgeon; but it’s not very favourable to lawyers from the financial point of view. Suitable professions are car or airplane drivers, iron-smith, carpenter, goldsmith, mechanical engineers, turners, fitters, land-surveyors, etc.”

BPHS: 4th lord in the 1st house: “The native is blessed with learning, virtues, ornaments, land, conveyances and maternal happiness.”

B.V. Raman: 4th lord in the 1st house: “The native becomes highly learned, but will be afraid to speak in public assemblies. He is likely to loose inherited wealth. But the strength of this planet, wether strong, medium or weak will determine if the native is born into a  wealthy, middle class or poor family.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 1st house: “Native will be fortunate, prosperous, honoured by king or government, good natured, charming, honoured by the people.”

B.V. Raman: 9th lord in the 1st house: “The native becomes a self made man and earns much money through his efforts. If conjunct the ascendant lord and aspected by benefics the native is fortunate with riches and happiness.”

Commentary: A powerful yoga karaka for nationalistic beliefs, theatrical patriotism. Very confident, bright, strong, healthy people. Even if they are not religious they often like being a part of spiritual celebrations. They are very active, everything is a celebration. Their identity is closely attached to their home culture, they might become a cultural icon. This does have a negative effect on relationships bringing fighting in to the home and over sexualization. Both oneself and ones partners can be very aggressive. This can bring many conquests.

Donald Trump had his Mars Mahadasha from Nov. 1991 – Nov. 1998. Hotels & Casinos: Those were big years for property development. Trump won the right to develop 70 acres of river front in New York. In 1994, The Trump Organisation bought the Seven Springs Mansion on a 230 acre property. In April 1995, he converted the now infamous Mar-a-Lago into a private club, though he continued to use a wing of the house as a private residence. In 1995, he founded Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts, which assumed ownership of Trump Plaza, Trump Castle, and the Trump Casino and in 1996  purchased the Taj Mahal and acquired the 71-story skyscraper on Wall Street that he later rebranded as the Trump Building. In 1997 opened a 52 story mixed–use super luxury hotel and residential building.

He divorced from Ivanka in 1992. On 13 Oct 1993, Mars Jupiter, his 4th child, Tiffany was born. Dec 1993 he married Marla Maples, Tiffany’s mother. They separated in 1997 and divorced in 1999.

His spiritual guru, Protestant clergyman Norman Vincent Peale died in 1993. He taught the power of positive thinking; and wrote the book on it. Starting in the 1990s, Trump was a guest about 24 times on the Howard Stern Show In 1995, he served as the Grand Marshal of the largest parade ever held in New York, The Nation’s Parade. 1996 he bought into the Miss Universe Pageants.

Commentary: A powerful yoga karaka mars for wealth, competitive values

Johnny Depp had Mars mahadasha from 1987 – 1994. It started around the time he broke up with Winona Ryder and started dating Kate Moss. His drinking, drugs and parties really went off the rails in this period. But it’s also a time when he came into himself and embraced his eccentricity. He made movies such as:  “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” (1993), Benny & Joon” (1993), “Ed Woods” (1994), “Dead Man” (1995), Donnie Brasco (1997), Fear and loathing in Las Vegas(1998), Sleepy Hollow (1999). He made huge money in Mars mahadasha and became known for chain-smoking, drinking, and drugs. He was rebellious, unconventional, and volatile, anti-macho and somewhat gender-bending (likely due to Ketu’s aspect to his ascendant, Mars, the lord of ascendant). He kinda discovered himself in this period and became who he is today. In 1994, Mars Venus period, he was arrested again after trashing a hotel room during fight with his new girlfriend Kate Moss; they stuck it out until 1998, the year he started dating Vanessa Paradis and had two children with her. They stayed together until 2012. His daughter was born in May 1999 Mars Sun period. One does have to wonder is Kate Moss had an abortion in Mars Ketu period before their break up.

Mars in Magha 3rd house

Rules the 6th & 11th houses for Gemini ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in 3rd house “brings good qualities of wealth and courage, he is unassailable, happy but without brothers.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 3rd house “brings happiness from favours of the king and makes a person generous hearted, vigorous, valorous, healthy and very rich; but he does not have happiness from a brother, especially if this Mars is afflicted.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 3rd house “Not good for siblings. Liable to danger and accidents while travelling. Brave, worried on account of family misunderstandings. Reckless. Pioneering and unprincipled. Ear problems or deafness. If 3rd house has additional affliction one will have suicidal thoughts and violent tendencies. If in own or exalted sign the negative effects will be modified.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 3rd house: “The native will be given to anger, be bereft of courage inimical to all his brothers and will have disobedient servants.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 3rd house: “If fortified it conferred enmity with brothers; the natives uncle will befriend the natives brother and both will work against the natives interest; the native’s brother suffers frequently from ill health. If weak and afflicted there will be no younger sibling.”

BPHS: 11th lord in the 3rd house: “The native will be skilful in all jobs, wealthy. Blessed with fraternal bliss and sometimes insure pains from gout.”

B.V. Raman: 11th lord in the 3rd house: “The native will be a concert singer or musician and earn thereby. Gain through brothers, many friends and helpful neighbours. Afflictions will give contrary results.”

Commentary: Their communication Strong arms, direct communication, small groups of entitled males. Lots of travel, short quick trips. They are always doing something. Injuries to the arms, upper chest, inflammation of the lungs. May be trained in fighting or the use of weapons.

Sydney Watson and her brand of shock news. All of her ambition is focused on the 3rd house of media. It’s her job from 6th house and her income form 11th house. She seems to also have many friends in the media business. She can certainly handle herself in a group of competitive males.

King Francis had Saturn Mars period from May 1536 – June 1537. In the previous period, Saturn Moon, they are conjunct with Mars aspecting, he saw the heir to his throne die suddenly at 18 years old. He blamed it on the Spanish King Charles V. It was around this time that “daddies little girl’ his beloved daughter died as well, just 6 months after marrying into the Scottish kingdom. The Italian War 1536 – 38 was fought. that allowed him to capture Turin in Northern He made an alliance with the Ottoman Empire that allowed him to thwart an attack on Marcelles or Avignon. Truce was signed on  June 18, 1538. So you could say that this Mars brought powerful armies and arms, as well as the courage for their use: war. The battle against his 6th house enemy was strong. Other than Turin it was basically a stale-mate. From the Moon perspective, this Mars gave him the powerful alliance with the Ottoman’s. It brought many new wonders through trade. And it showed for the first time that two cultures could work together. It was a wonder. Jacques Cartier also Arrived back in France following his second voyage to the Sainte Lawrence River in Canada. Much of this greater exploration was being furled by his Saturn Moon conjunction in 9th house Much wealth and gain by arms, but not a pleasant period; too much heat and anger, stomach problems, injuries, inflammation. Enraged mentality with Saturn & Mars afflicting 3rd, 6th & 9th houses and the moon. We can see many of the common effects of Mars in the 3rd house, happy wealthy, courage, worried on account of family misunderstandings, unassailable, pioneering, unprincipled, violent tendencies and self destruction when afflicted.

Mars in Magha 4th house

Rules the 7th & 12th houses for Taurus ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in 4th house “person remains friendless, without mother, land, happiness, shelter, conveyance. All the significations of the 4th house are destroyed.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 4th house brings “pain and grief through friends, conveyances and growth of disease in the body. The native gets no cooperation from relatives, disputes over immovable property, and strife that often causes the native to live away from home. The native lacks power, courage and endurance; or their courage may be the wrong kind of courage. They are frenzied, fitful, emotional and rash. This position is unfavourable for marriage and the wife may have a blood disorder of heart disease. If this Mars is in a fire sign with fiery aspects, the natives house might catch fire.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 4th house “This is generally a bad combination: the person will be deprived happiness rom mother, relatives, friends; but will have success in the politics. Quarrels with mother and domestic affairs go awry. In Mars conjuncts Rahu or Ketu he may have a tendency for suicide. He will own a house but will not be happy in that account.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 4th house: “The wife of the native will not remain under his control. He will himself be truthful, intelligent, and religious, but he will suffer from dental disease.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 4th house: “Gives lucky and happy marriage partner with many children and comforts. The native may have benefit of high academic qualification and own many vehicles. If afflicted, domestic harmony may be spoiled through immature and mean partner. The native may run into endless problems on account of his conveyances. If several afflicted by the nodes and other malefic the natives wife is of questionable character.”

BPHS: 12th lord in the 4th house: “The native will be devoid of maternal happiness and will day-by-day have losses in respect to lands, conveyances and houses. They native will sell his lands for wealth. Gemini and Leo ascendant will will completely Destry maternal bliss, but Scorpio and Aries ascendants will get special happiness from mother.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 4th house: “Early death for mother, mental restlessness, unnecessary worry, enmity with relatives and living abroad are some of the results. Suffering constant harassment from landlord, residence will be in an ordinary house. If well placed these negative indications are greatly mitigated. If Venus is strong the native will own conveyance but it will always give him trouble.”

Commentary: Disturbs home life and relationships, brings losses from home, mother and vehicles. They will spend heavily on 4th house things. They might need excessive home security, they can be a little aggressive. Good military placement for aggressive defence of the homeland. It should also be noted that the heavy spending is, in a way, a good thing since it suggest they have homes and vehicles which drain their time, money and energy.

Domestic violence is likely and this Mars creates a powerful Kuja Dosha for trouble in the marriage.

Mars in Magha 5th house

Rules the 1st & 8th houses for Aries ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in 5th house person is “unhappy, weak-minded and without children; their life is full of set-backs and back-bitting.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 5th house “makes a person restless due to wind and phlegm, he lacks the happiness of having a wife, friend, son; his thinking get reversed and he is unable to think in the right way. Ones father is not long lived. If this Mars has malefic aspect there is possibility of early death of father as well os for the possibility of ones own fatherhood (ie. loss of children). In a woman’s chart any negative influence to this Mars can give abortion, disease related to the uterus, menstrual problems. When poorly places the person lacks ability to do trade and business because of poor bargaining and speculation abilities. If Mars is conjunct 6th lord the person may have a disease in the brain.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 5th house “Miserable for his wife, friends and children; always disturbed in thoughts; impressive rash, weak-mined, back-bitter, and unhappy. He will suffer from colic and misfortune through children. Too much attached to sexual pleasures which depletes the health. Dangerous childbirth may be predicted in a woman’s chart.”

BPHS: 1st lord in the 5th house: “The native will have mediocre happiness though sons, the first born is not likely to live, he will be honourable, wrathful and a favourite of the king. Difficulty with first born is generally true if in the case of debilitation and may prove true for other ascendants if there is additional affliction; Sagittarius and Pisces ascendants will be particularly sensitive to affliction since Jupiter is said to be the destroyer of the effects of the house occupied by him.”

B.V. Raman: 1st lord in the 5th house: “The first child does not survive, not much happiness from children, short tempered, subservient and serving others. If fortified, he will be in the good graces of rulers or powerful political parties and likely be absorbed into trade of diplomatic service. He will propitiate deities consistent with indications of the 5th lord.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 5th house: “The native will be dull-witted. He will have few children, be long lived and healthy. The native of this combination will be prompted to study history, ancient languages and other things that have been lost to time or are considered dead. If Pisces ascendant they may become a mining engineer.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 5th house: “If conjunct the 5th lord the children of the native get into trouble; they may commit some crime, develop some illness, or behave in ways that affect the natives reputation. The native and his own father may also develop misunderstandings. If heavily afflicted a child may die soon after birth or cause much grief to the native due to incurable physical affliction or mental retardation. The native himself may also suffer poor bodily health. If in the 6th, 8th, or 12th navamsha the effects may be greatly mitigated; but if it’s further fortified in Kendra or Trikona the evil results will be intensified. Since 5th house is the buddhisthana the native himself may suffer nervous tension, breakdown or mental aberration.”

Commentary: Power placement for politicians, athletes, and gamblers looking for a celebrated win competing for attention and central role. May be identified with powerfully theatrical stage roles. Gamblers with a love for places like Las Vegas. Risk takers, hot steamy romance. Celebration or glorification of violence, death, sex and urgent means.

Mars in Magha 6th house

Rules the 2nd & 9th houses for Pisces ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in 6th house person is “exceedingly smitten with love, wealthy, famous; he becomes king and is virtuous over his enemies.” “Danger from ulcer.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 6th house “gives strong digestion and a strong hunger. This person destroys their enemies and established friendship with gentle people.” “This is a favourable position for Mars, but if it’s situated with malefic influence then it will give fear of accidents, heart disease or liver trouble. It’s not good for the natives uncles.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 6th house “Highly passionate, victorious, successful as ruler or politician. He will have worries from near relatives. If afflicted, there will be accidents, losses, and troubles through employees. If Saturn is the afflicting planet, death may be due to operation or injury from animals. If Rahu is afflicting, death my be due to suicide. If Ketu is afflicting he may die from poison.”

BPHS: 2nd lord in the 6th house: “If conjunct a benefic the native will earn wealth from his enemies. If with a malefic he will have losses through his enemies and be weak thighed. For Aries ascendant, debilitated Venus will bring loss of wealth, clashes with family, weakness to wives health, depression in her, conflict in marital relations, loss of family wealth, loss though partner and friends, and deterioration of sexual energy. For Gemini Ascendant there will be loss of wealth. The native will see a rise & fall of wealth at an early age. Exalted Jupiter here will bring much paternal wealth, but as he ages he will spend most of it. For other ascendants the general effects are: 1. Theft of money, 2. Loss of valuables like jewellery, 3. Litigation over paternal property, 4. Money lent out is not returned, 5. Obstruction of incoming wealth, 6. Disease of the nose, face or teeth, 7. Fear of water for the spouse and fear of her collapse during a journey or something.”

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 6th house: “Income and expenditure from enemies. He will suffer from defects or diseases in the anus or thighs. Amassing of wealth by black-marketing, dissent, dissimulation and by casting misunderstandings and troubles between friends and relatives and through questionable and suspicious dealings can be anticipated if 2nd lord conjoins 6th lord and is well-fortified. If afflicted he will be involved in troubles and sentenced for such crimes as breach of trust, forgeries and perjuries.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 6th house: “The native will be less fortunate, be devoid of happiness from maternal uncle ect. and be troubled by enemies.”

B.V. Raman: 9th lord in the 6th house: “Gives a sickly father afflicted with chronic disease. If benefics ‘flank’ the 6th house, the native gains wealth through successful termination of father’s legal problems and by way of compensation or cost recovery. If afflicted by malefic the natives attempts seek his fortune may be frustrated though litigation involving the father or by debts contracted by him.”

Commentary: Fights against injustice, seeks to destroy ones enemies. May be a kind of celebrity activist. They often have some kind of higher wisdom about imbalance, crime, injuries. They have a powerful invigoration to fight for what they believe in. Early life is marked by disputes with ones father and family. They typically take a position contrary to that of the local culture. They may face litigation, celebrated battles. Women are especially prone to have imbalanced males in their life, disputes with mothers family. Accidents and injuries, cuts, burns, inflammation and stomach ulcers are likely with this placement. The face (2nd lord in 6th house while Mage also rules over the lips and chin), hips and stomach itself are likely to feel the brunt of the damage, but the feet and head will also feel this affliction; and occasionally the whole body is likely to be sore either from inflammation caused by an irregular work routine, or the occasional fever.

Mars in Magha 7th house

Rules the 3rd & 10th houses for Aquarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in the 7th house “causes them to do all improper acts and be afflicted with disease, lose their wife and wander here and there.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 7th house causes a “person to suffer much harm, losses, dangers, he suffers meaningless worries and anxieties and his body is weakened from torture by his enemies. He suffers and excess of grief due to love for his wife. The health of one’s wife might be harmed, as will the longevity of the marriage partnership.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 7th house: “The native will be hen-pecked by his wife and submissive to women. Married life will have clashes and tension, or there may be a second wife. The native will be rash and indulge in speculation. He will be intelligent, tactless, stubborn, peevish and unsuccessful.”

BPHS: 3rd lord in the 7th house: “The native will have aptitude for serving the king, he will not be happy during childhood but there can be no doubt that he will get happiness in the end.”

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 7th house: “May experience displeasure of the rulers and authority. Many vicissitudes in life. Much suffering in childhood. The union will be unfortunate. Danger while travelling. If well-fortified there will be cordial feeling between brothers. When the 7th lord is in lagna one of the brothers will settle in a foreign country and will help the native.”

BPHS: 10th lord in the 7th house: “The native will get happiness through wife, will be intelligent, virtuous, eloquent, truthful and devoted to religion.”

B.V. Raman: 10th lord in the 7th house: “The native gets a mature wife who will assist him in his work. He will travel abroad on diplomatic missions. He will be well known for his skill in speaking and obtaining objectives. He will make profits through partnerships and co-operative ventures. If malefic afflict the 10th lord the native will be debased in his sexual habits and indulge in every kind of vice.”

Commentary: Ones reputation typically precedes oneself. Mangalik will bring aggressiveness into ones partners which can cause many breaks and interruptions in the relationship. I would expect durable marriage to be difficult with this placement, with addition affliction the partner might even die early, but there will certainly be rises and falls of passion. Aggressive negotiators. Ionannis Pallikaris, inventor of laser eye surgery, started bring in huge grant money for laser research during his Jupiter Mars dasha in 1995. I suspect he travelled a little and indulged in debauchery during his Rahu Mars dasha. He had just complete post graduate studies and submitted his thesis.

If this Mars is influenced by Rahu they may develop carbuncles or cancer.” “Death may be caused by accidental fire, magical spells, witchcraft or weapons.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 8th house “subjects the native to an evil fortune, blood sickness, eye disease, a tendency to do base deeds; they are dull witted, and will blame and criticise wise saintly people. One’s own and ones wives longevity is shortened; the person suffers unmentionable diseases like piles, wounds, fissure, ulcer, or anxiety. Weak or afflicted Mars can cause imprisonment, criminal mindedness, fear of death. Extra fiery influence on this Mars by sign and aspect can cause death by gunpowder. This person is deprived, troubled by obstacles, ironically ill with stomach cramps, irregular bowel movements. This person attracts blame and accusations and may be censured, grief stricken, attacked with weapons, and full of grief due to one’s partner.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 8th house: “The native will be short lived unless there are other alleviating factors. One may suffer the loss of their marital partner, have very few children, and he may seek to gratify his passions by resorting to extra-marital life. He will hate hie relatives. His domestic life will be marred by quarrels and he suffers from bodily complaints like piles. He will rule over many people.”

BPHS: 4th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be devoid of domestic and other comforts, will not get much paternal happiness and be equal to a neuter. The native may be separated from his place of birth and may live in secrecy or in hiding. The person may have an aptitude for occult sciences like astrology, tantra, mantra siddhi etc. The native may be prone to addictions, his conveyance will be stolen and/or badly damaged in an accident. The native lacks popularity.”

BPHS: 11th lord in the 8th house: “The native will suffer losses in his undertakings. He will be long lived and his wife will die before him. Leo and Aquarius ascendants will have special losses due to interest and this kind of thing at some time or other. There can be gains in dealing with scrap, leather and mineral substances for all ascendants. If Aries ascendant, debilitated Mercury will not grant long life. Gemini and Pisces natives will get special longevity due to exaltation.”

B.V. Raman: 11th lord in the 8th house: “The native, though rich at birth, suffers many calamities and losses all of his money. He will suffer from thieves, cheats and swindlers. If in a malefic constellation he will be forced to eke out a living begging.”

Commentary: Forced transformations of the local home culture. Destruction of home, vehicle accidents. Trouble for the mother. Hidden earnings, possibly living in hiding, nobody knows where one lives. Possibly changing homes quickly, suddenly and often. Even large gatherings tend to be private. They might seek out sexual relationships for comfort or gain. Sexual relationships with ones elder siblings or friends is possible with this as well; the harsher the affliction the more taboo and dirty will have been their relationsForced penetration is possible. These natives have few issues dealing with taboos, secrets, Princess Diana died in a car crash, Henry Ford revolutionised transportation. Ionannis Pallikaris revolutionised eye surgery. Caitlin Jenner transformed her gender. Lights, camera, headlights, streetlights.

They might teach taboo topics, emergency medicine, laser surgery, trauma therapy or they might provided housing or education in life or death topics. They might seek out crisis or sex in order to feel secure in life. Profits made are kept hidden and may be made through criminal means, sex, killing, secret, tax free sources. Friends circles might change frequently and be kept secret.

Mars here will bring accidents generally as well as inflammation to the organs of elimination, the nervous system, the face, arms and hands. The chest (4th house) and the legs (11th house) tend to undergo the greatest transformation. Broken bones, eye injuries, broken nose, jaw, teeth, fingers, hands, ribs, etc.

Mars in Magha 9th house

Rules the 5th & 12th houses for Sagittarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Mars in the 9th house “gives friendship with the ruler while being hated by everyone else. One is fatherless and guilty of being a homicide [sic].”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 9th house “causes the native to tend towards violence; they get honour from the government but no advantage comes from it. They are less holy, less virtuous, & less wealthy. They are courageous and have a strong healthy body, they like adventure travel and are the makers of their own destiny. If Jupiter aspects a well placed Mars here, they may worship fire and perform yagnas and fire ritual.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 9th house: “The native will wield authority and be affluent. He will have children and be happy. He will not be a dutiful son but will be otherwise generous and famous for his good qualities. If either Mercury or Jupiter conjoin he will be learned in religion and spiritual lore. Venus conjunction will give two wives and a foreign residence. It also give the native proficiency in law. Saturn conjunction indicated and addiction to other women and a wicked nature. He will be self seeking stubborn and impetuous.”

BPHS: 5th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be a prince, an illustrious author and illustrious in his own family. Confers the native with learning, fame, wealth and honour. The natives sons are given the honour of princes. Debilitated planets here will not give these results.”

B.V. Raman: 5th lord in the 9th house: “He will become a teacher or a preceptor. Renovated ancient temples, wells, choultries and gardens. One of the sons attains distinction as an orator or author. If the lord is afflicted he will earn divine wrath and consequent destruction of fortune.”

Mars in Magha 10th house

Rules the 1st & 6th houses for Scorpio ascendant. Digbala.

Phala Deepika: Mars in 10th house “makes a person a cruel king, but liberal and praised by important people.”

Jataka Bharnam: Mars in 10th house “makes the native a king, or like a king. He is very contented, courageous, adventurous, always ready to do good to others. This person obtains beautiful ornaments, gems and precious jewels. This is consisted a very auspicious placement for Mars. If this is a Raja Yoga Mars, the native will gain distinction in police or army. And honourable title due to their good works. The person is skilled in games, sports, horseback riding, wrestling, athletics, and agricultural activities. They take others under their influence and their commands will be obeyed. With benefic influence they will succeed in everything, become popular, endowed with good fortune, good character, devoted to guru and brothers will be long lived.”

B.V. Raman: Mars in the 10th house: “If other combinations favour the native he many become a cruel ruler. He will be fond of praise and seek bold steps in governing. He will be rash and earn much money. If Mercury conjoins Mars he will be a skilled scientist or technician praised by rulers. If Jupiter is with Mars he will be the head of low-class people. If with Venus, he becomes a trader in foreign lands. If Saturn and Mars combine he will be daring but will have no progeny.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Mars in the 10th house: “His jobs, without much effort, are spontaneously finalised. He has plenty of attendants, Even if born in a low family, he attains lion-like success — uncrowned king and popular leader of the populous under the benefic influence of Mars. He gets wealth from the royal court, relatives, agriculture and friends, Continued success, valiant, self-made; auspicious celebrations are often held; prosperous, contented, glorious, generous, philanthropic, enthusiastic, pleasure-loving and cruel. He is influential, renowned, wealthy, gallant,  Gainful if in Cancer. Moderate, poor, protector, saviour, handsome, attractive, captivating, agriculturalist; devoted to learning and to elderly people. Middle stature, kind, noble, noble sons, proud, active, invincible. The native will be sold, merciless like Bhils, residing far from the birth place, wicked, living with low people. If it is in an enemy sign, the father does not survive, He is extravagant, vicious and has unworthy sons. Unless this Mars is in Capricorn the native will be impulsive; rational mind is ruled over by emotions, feelings, and passions and the forceful side of nature. He has trouble through ambition, independence, domination, aggressiveness and faces defamation, wether deserved or not. There is death of parents or discord between them. The native is full of courage, energy, enterprise, force; but will gain from business of the nature of ants rather than own business. If well aspected, he will gain through business acumen, salesmanship, brave, and industrial pursuits, and he will benefit from father and legacy. If well aspected by Mercury, the native can be an engineer, sculptor, carver, draughtsman, designer, mechanic, soldier, sailor, officer, dentist, surgeon, surgical instrument maker, work on lathe machine, etc. If Mercury is afflicting this Mars he will be a mason, labourer, iron-smith, butcher, tanner, Beth, lavatory, or laundry attendant, furnace man. If Saturn is adverse: business failure, laborious employment, vindictive, resentful, unforgiving, overly critical or sceptical.

Some people suggest that Neil Armstrong wrote a similar myth about going to the moon. Curiously, after 50 years of technological advancement we have not been able to repeat this feat. D.H. Lawrence even spent some time on the forbidden list for his steamy romances. Madonna & Michael Jackson shared a similar kind of unique stardom in the age of bright lights and MTV. They both created whole fairy tale worlds with themselves at the centre. They might have gestures of nobility.

Jataka Bharnam: Mercury in 8th house “gives prosperity due to favour and kindness of the king. The person suffers from pride, opposes others and destroys their work. Vipreet raja can make this Mercury very auspicious; the native may be long lived, fame spreads far and wide, he remains cheerful, has sex with many different women, but has strength and supports his family. The person may have poor handwriting and be opposed to their brothers. Problems arise due to signing contracts, borrowing or lending without first thinking it through.”

B.V. Raman: Mercury in the 8th house: “The native will possess many good qualities. He will be known for his breeding and curious disposition. He will inherit as well as earn much wealth. He will be learned and famous for his scholarship in many subjects. He will live long but have a weak constitution.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Mercury in the 8th house: “The native enjoys a long life and is renown in his own and in foreign lands. He is cheerful, gains through royal favour or business, enjoys pleasure and the confidence of women. Longevity, reputation, wealth, debauchee but famous for his qualities, glorious, hostile but philanthropic, ungrateful, vicious, sexy, lying, ailing. The native gets wealth from the state, proud, antagonist of the people, disrupting, deviating, magistrate, supporter of his family and distinguished personality, truth-loving, honours guests and dies peacefully. If Mercury conjoins a malefic or is in enemy sign the native suffers from degradation due to over passion. His courtesy makes him famous and rich. Whatever planet be in the 8th house the result is one and the same. This native is wicked, rich, cheerless, danger from weapons. No friend or relative, life in prison. Death in a holy place and peaceful. If this Mercury is malefic: acute pain in thigh or stomach. In a female chart this Mercury will bring trouble, discord and disputes; worries due to financial difficulties with husband, partners and others. She is inclined to occult services, literature and the search for a life here and in the hereafter. Lively at time of death. If this Mercury is afflicted by Mars or Saturn brain or nervous conditions may prove fatal. Gain through goods of the dead. This position of Mercury is gainful. It gives longevity, prosperity. Land and property. Seven sons, high status in the 25th year, and royal favour, He annihilates the enemy and is a glorious person. If lord of the 8th is strong, exalted, in own sign or with a benefic the native enjoys longevity. Life is cut short if in enemy sign, debilitated or with a malefic. Gain if this Mercury is in a masculine sign; wife keeps secrets and lives merrily with husband. In a feminine sign it bring mental anxiety and physical agony; they are quarrelsome and they give out family secrets. This native is inclined towards knowledge of scripture and divine learning. If the Sun is near this Mercury it gives royal favour and good reputation with the public.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be sickly, inimical to the learned and wise, will desire the wealth and wives of others  and will be impure. Gives diseases that remain for the whole life of the native and ultimately become the cause of death. Conjunct the 8th lord and Saturn will be even more malefic. Vipreet raj can confer upon the native wealth prosperity and other auspicious effects.”

With benefic influence the native may inherit substantial properties. Afflictions may cause the native to abandon tradition and damage religious institutions and trusts set up by the family.”

Commentary: Heterodox beliefs, separation from father, or father is secretive and distant. They often have a job in emergency wards possibly working the front desk accounting, auditing, diagnostics, of media messages about transformational approach. Bright lights and chaos. This is not good for one’s own hips or stomach and a bit of negative influence could find those body part under the surgeons bright lights. Mercury accounts for the emergencies, the taboos, the sex partners

Intellectual freedom, free speech, confident speakers, celebrated speeches, celebrity flare to their communications. Some self-righteousness comes out in their mentality. Talks about shocking personal truths, revolutionary independence, sovereignty, political revolution, shocking behind the scenes celebrity culture. Seeking transformation though magic and wonder. Research of light and royalty, the mysterious force which is passed down through the ancestors. Describes leaving the body in death, the bright light, death and rebirth, the shocking unexplained cycles across the bridge.

Bright visions, flashes of light, eye problems or neurological problems. Heart and eye, nose, throat and mouth. Hidden and secret messages, media works, writing under a pen name, ghost writer, working with sensitive information. May be a forensic analysts, a psychologist offering assessments, a professional looking into the truth of an accident or a disaster, a tantric writing about sex and transformation. They might works as accountants, auditors, secretaries, media messengers, analysts, problem solvers in fields related to crisis management, emergency response. They might not be directly involved with the crisis, it might just be the field they work in. They may be involved with mental illness through work, service, or have to deal with their own mental illness secretly. They will be secretive about their imbalances, even their day to day activities and their beliefs will tend to be hidden an mysterious.

Information revolution: digging, diving, searching, researching, online. Rahu influence will intensify this by putting blinders on, intensifying the situation to the point of mental illness.

Jupiter in Magha 

As long as they show their respect to their guru their power will expand, their productivity will increase. The list is small but there are a handful of professors and a few others with strong ties to a guru figure. This Jupiter allows these people great eccentricity in their beliefs. They are quite capable of gaining professorship or priestly-type duties regardless of experience or suitability for the role. Their beliefs are likely to seem strange to others, maybe not so strange in and of themselves, but one might be surprised that you hold them. Somehow they do not match their personality. Though on the other hand they are likely to be natural at many things. They are given wisdom and advice by their ancestors. Since Magha is Ketu owned, the space between this world and the next becomes thin and there might be frequent crossings between the ancient past and the present. They are capable of gaining wisdom merely by honouring their ancestors. In India I think about all of these simple altars in homes and businesses with pictures of their fathers. Those people with the Moon or Jupiter in Magha will be raised to the high chair by ancestral blessing. Jupiter is the one who gives permission. This is partly why he rules the husband in a wife’s chart. Women with this placement are certainly recommended to honour their husbands at all times; as well as their children. Both genders with this placement should honour children generally. They must also honour those who give permission generally. This means no trespassing, not overstepping your authority, asking parents permission for marriage. The few people I know personally with this position give great honour to their gurus whether they are dead or alive. One man’s very old guru recently died in his arms. Both are practically penniless living a simple life dedicated to music, Shiva and a bit of wine. Jupiter in Ketu has no boundaries to righteousness, there’s no rule book or explicit guide to how the righteous are supposed to act. Jupiter in Magha is a nice placement for spirituality, higher forms of faith, and dedication to guru. From this path they can gain a lot of respect.

They really like pagents, celebrations and ceremonies. Expansive intelligence, creativity, productivity. Many stage performances, they have the moral authority to preach, to teach ethics or talk about morality. Entitled to preach, to hold peoples attention. They are charming, compassionate, broad minded guru or professor type people. They can have a very large commanding personalities, a little bit self-righteous.

Jupiter conjunct Regulus: Fame, high preferment, especially of a military nature, success in the Church. If the [chart] as a whole points to this possibility, Jupiter conjunct Regulus is one of the best configurations for success. People like this can reach high positions, positions of trust, preferment and favours; fortunes. Riches and power could fall to these natives easily.

Phala Deepika: Jupiter in 1st house “makes a person handsome, attractive, fortunate, long living, fearless, and blessed with children.”

Suffers from phlegmatic disease, if afflicted there is much collection of fat on the body and the native has to suffer harm one way or another. There is something serene and noble in the way they talk, walk and move about. Upon maturity his belly becomes round and body becomes fatty. He will be tall and strong, and famous for his virtues, learning and generosity.”

B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 1st house: “A magnetic personality is bestowed on the native. Optimistic spirit, jovial disposition and pleasant manners are indicated. The native will have more sons if the 5th house is not afflicted. Self indulgence and gluttony will affect the health. If with Rahu, sons will be committed. Body will be inclined to corpulence. Lawyers, professors, writers, theologians, etc. come under this planet. The man becomes an influential leader. Disease may result from impure blood.”

Jataka Bharnam: “Moon & Jupiter conjunction makes a person courteous, of firm disposition, keeps his thoughts secret, remains engaged in virtuous acts and is good to others. They are religious and have faith in the gods, are devoted to teachers, extremely popular, ready to do works for public welfare; they are pure, clear, liberal, theistic.”

He will earn the grace of God. Few children; will have foes and will give happiness to others. If this 5th lord is afflicted there will be no children, will invoke shudra devotes (evil and destructive forces), will be evil mined and the leader of a gang of deceitful persons: a tale-bearer with a sting. If the lord is moderately good, mixed results will follow.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be bereft of bodily pleasures, be a detractor of gods and brahmins and have wounds. For Aries and Libra ascendant the 8th lord will be in their own house so auspicious effects will be present.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be bereft of bodily pleasures, a detractor of gods and brahmins, and will have wounds on his body. If Venus is exalted here he will have good health but will still be a detract or gods and brahmins. For Aries and Libra ascendants, Mars and Venus will give only auspicious effects.”

Commentary: Politicians and celebrities. Expansive humanistic personality. Jupiter aspecting his own 5th house is certain to give children. They might be tall, but they are also likely to seem somehow larger than life.

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 2nd house: “Conjoined or aspected by benefics the native will have untold suffering in family life and deep sorrows, loss of money through enemies, defective vision, uneven teeth and stammering.

B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 5th house “Learned in logic and law, mantra sastra; highly intelligent; preceptor or adviser to the king and great discriminating power. He will have good friends and vehicles and decorous manners. A number of children; god-fearing; happy with children and friends.”

BPHS: 9th lord in the 5th house: “Native will have blessing of sons and food fortune. He will be devoted to elders and teachers, will have fortitude, be religious, charitable and learned.”

The native may get his learning in a foreign country, which brings great expense. If weak he will remain in his own country but go stay in a hostel for his education.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 5th house: “Either difficulty to beget progeny or unhappiness from children will be experienced. He will be religious minded and may undertake pilgrimages. Weak minded and suffering mental aberrations; he feels he in miserable. He will not succeed in agriculture as his crops will suffer from pests and disease.”

Commentary: Highly intelligent, educated, humanistic. Great fortune and investments through father. Many centre stage roles. But also a loss of ones individual identity when in in the spotlight. A mix of good fortune and loss through children, students and celebrity entitlements.

The love relation will be characterised by sweetness and gravity. Lust will be negligible. Both may have significant achievement.”

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 7th house: “Likely to become a healer. Laxity of morals will mark both husband and wife and much money will be wasted on the gratification of the senses.

When Rashi, navamsha, or constellation held by the 2nd lord happens to be a feminine one he will benefit by contact with women.”

BPHS: 11th lord in the 7th house: “The native always gains through his wife’s relatives. He will be liberal, virtuous, sensual, and will remain at the command of his wife. If exalted, the native is likely to marry into a rich family. For Gemini ascendant, Mars can bring disputes with the wife, possibly over dowery. Debilitated Mars here can cause the death of wife or they might see their engagements broken.”

Gain through death and legacy, interested in occult subjects, and devoted to lord Vishnu. He will be righteous, famous and a gentle speaker endowed with many good qualities of head and heart.”

Commentary: They loose themselves through sex and might spend heavily hidden pleasures. They will break many taboos and experience much loss of identity through transformation. They might be the cause of their own death either through accident of suicide.

Jim Morrison’s alcohol addiction likely led to his death in Paris at the age of 27. Witness reports conflict and no autopsy was performed so the cause of death is a disputed mystery. Pope Pius VII was out of it in a different way in the weeks leading to his death. After fracturing his hip at age 80 he was bed ridden and began muttering memories form his past.

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 10th house: “Respect from elders and superiors. Learned, wealthy, and earns by own exertion. The native will take to a number of useful vocations.

Jupiter in Magha 11th house

Rules the 3rd & 6th houses for Libra ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Jupiter in 11th house “native is wealthy, fearless, travelling by own conveyance, and long lived; but they will have few children.”

Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in 11th house “makes the native competent, powerful, extremely wealthy with beautiful robes, gems, excellent conveyances and royal favour. Wealth from lands, worship, conveyances, or teaching. This person is ambitious; if well placed with benefics, they will achieve their goals, otherwise they will face difficulties. Happiness from wife, sons, cattle and quadrupeds.”

B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 11th house: “The native will be long lived but have a limited number of children. He will be bold and wealthy, have a piercing intellect and become renowned. He will be fond of music, accumulate many riches and have many friends.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 11th house: “The native will gain from his enemies, be virtuous, adventurous, honourable, but bereft of progeny happiness.

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 11th house: “Not a very good combination. Earnings with effort. He becomes vindictive. The body will be unattractive and emaciated. Subservient to, or dependent upon others. Liable to suffer from frequent attacks of illness.”

Commentary: I can’t help but think that all of these people are somewhat thieves, perhaps practicing sleight of hand tricks, pick-pockets. They will have a lot of friends, net works of associations, gangs, bands. Since this Jupiter is in a Ketu nakshatra there is some loosens in the configuration of the group. Large crowds seem to be especially headless. They generally have good friends in whom that has faith, but there might be disputes with friends, or with the band about how to make the cut as these people typically take a bigger cut for themselves. Might become a celebrated criminal, with a criminal network of associates.

He is sinful, given to idleness, shameless, devoid of intelligence and does not get respect.” “The native is full of too much pride and egotism; has a tendency to exaggerate his virtues, due to which no one gives him respect. He spends wealth extravagantly and is easily deceived by flattery, he will loose wealth many times before learning his lessons. He lacks the spirit of cooperation, his speech is lacking in refinement, and culture and begins to irritate others. They have no restraint for food and drink and may be addicted to wine. The native is give to idleness, jealous of his teachers, has enmity with his servants and his own brothers, loves to travel to foreign lands and has some disease of the private organs. They are give to anger, prosperous with paternal wealth and is full of anxiety by nature.”

B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 12th house: “The native will deride religion and be evil minded. He will commit fearful deeds and lead a lascivious lifestyle. Later on he repents and reforms himself. The native will always be anxious about vehicles , ornaments and clothes.”

BPHS: 4th lord in the 12th house: “The native will be devoid of domestic and other comforts, will have vices and be foolish and indolent. He will go away from home to live in another city or country. Those with Leo ascendant will not find the foreign country to their liking and remain not in their spirits there. If they leave their native country to live elsewhere they will have to remove themselves from there one day as well.”

If the affliction is severe, loss of spouse may occur soon after marriage and there may be no second marriage. Death may occur while travelling abroad. If both karaka and 7th lord are weak the native may only dream of marriage but never marry. The natives wife may hail from a servant family. He will be close fisted and generally poor.”

Commentary: They are likely to go away for education and may eventually own property in a foreign country. They are mostly comfortable alone, secluded, among the sangha or spiritual community. Partner is likely to come from a different country and marriage may not last. One will at least find themselves separated from the spouse. Expenses and losses due to overindulgence leading to excess fat on the body and health problems related too fat. They are likely to dream of celebrity,

Venus in Magha 

They love regality and bright pageants, Agreeable bright, blinding visions, and nice lights. Venus can be very enchanting in Magha, women with this placement can have a regal and ghostly beauty like a young princess, she may attract a lot of jealousy, but she must remain gracious and dignified with her sister and the women in her life; she must honour the codes of ladies. They can become very successful working with women or with women’s products. Anything she does to uplift them will uplift herself. She must be careful not to get into beauty competitions with the other women; her beauty is a divine gift and her style is uniquely her. There really is no competition to be had. Man with this position must act honourably with women in their lives and women will in turn lift him up. They might have a very close relationship with a sister, or some other women in his life. He can never act dishonourably in the face of any agreement or he will suffer. If he treats his wife like a queen, she will lift him up like a king.

Venus in Magha women can be very independent. They typically have strong pride and have other women in their life with a similar strength of independence. That’s how they shine their beauty. They can sometimes be a little ambivalent about whose attention they attract with their feminine charms. Venus rules over our valuables, the things we collect, and harmonise with, our possessions; but like Mohini, she also possesses us. As I write this I am looking at a chart that has Sun & Venus in Magha with Mercury also in Leo in her 5th house. This kind of combination puts me in mind of the three jews that the Buddhists speak about: the Buddha, the Dharma & the Sangha. Of course she also has Jupiter and the 9th lordship taking a mystical turn so the three jewels allow her to surrender to the abyss.

Pamala Anderson’s name stands out here with this Venus in the 4th house aspected by Rahu. She is perhaps most famous for her breasts: big, beautifully enhanced, standing out and taking centre stage; and appreciated by all. Candy Barr also had this position so it may be fair to say that women with Venus in 4th house Magha will have nice breasts which they will not be afraid to show off, perhaps even adding some glitter in this day and age. Rahu and Venus both influencing the 4th house along with nodal affliction to the moon is likely to give fake breasts; if it’s Ketu they could loose their breast for some reason.

Saturn in Magha

The first pada is Saturn’s debilitated navamsha. They are likely to work in government service, working with the mass in a one size fits all sort of way. Of course this greatly restricts a persons expressions of personal or original intelligence, but it’s great for people we expect to remain impartial like police, judges, care workers; but also office administrators, and more routine public service clerks. There is typically no glamour is this position, just a lot of hard, thankless work. Some might even describe it as somewhat soul crushing. The sacrifices Saturn makes just seems to get eaten up in Ketu’s black hole; sucked up by his vacuum. It might be difficult to see the meaning and magic of life. The wonder is often missing from these people for most of their lives.

They might find themselves with heavy responsibilities for children. This may be their own children, step children, or some kind of social services or government employee responsible for children: social work, criminal justice, group homes, orphan care and this kind of thing. They might be surrounded by childlike wonder but have little opportunity for such past-times themselves.

As a child they might have only had older people, servants and workers to “play” with. We loose this term loosely in this case. “After your chores are done; then you can play.” But the chores never end. In early life they will most certainly feel as though they are denied what they are entitled to. This can be a delay in in getting returns on investment. Or like “poor” Prince Charles, he had to wait almost his whole life before his mother finally died and he was able to claim his birth right as King of England.

The problems begin when a person is young and they are harshly censored for any kind of personal expression. Just follow the masses; this is it, look around you, there is nothing more to life than this. Later on these folks will often continue the same pattern established by their elders: checking the creative childlike wonder of others and expecting everyone to fall in line. Yes, they are party-poopers and they can be harsh cruel disciplinarians; cold and hard strict moralists; usually hypocrites.

We might note that this Saturn assets both Venus’ signs Taurus and Libra. The values old friends, long term agreements, and things that retain their values. They have the ability to hold onto investments that go through a slump and them later retain and increase in value. They might enjoy gambling, but they do not usually take biog risks. They are usually cautious in speculations. From their rigid discipline something quite unique and special might arise.

Saturn conjunct Regulus: Just, friends among clergy, success in Church or law, scholarly, wealth, gain through speculation, companies and friends, high position, proud of home and family, good health, heart trouble at end of life. If angular and especially if rising or culminating, public honour and credit. If Mars be with the Pleiades, violent death in a tumult.

Saturn in Magha does not appear to be very good for the Heart. Jackie Robinson died at age 53 from heart disease which was complicated by diabetes.

Moral stability will also be marked. The disposition is calm, grave and serious. The body will be weak and emancipated. Progress in any venture will be slow but certain. There may come an aversion for responsibility. This position makes habits inactive. Loss through negligence and lack of opportunity are possible. The same results will be noticed when Saturn aspects the ascendant. Misfortune is likely in the early part of life.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Saturn in the 1st house: “The native has plenty of wealth, unabated greed. Discontented, quarrelsome, unhappy, crude. Poisonous glance; mental agony, billions, jealous.

If Saturn is in it’s own sign, exalted or in Sagittarius, Pisces the native is affluent like a king, chief of the village or town; learned, a scholar, handsome, long-lived and charming. In other signs the results are similar to those of the Sun, there is trouble in the nose, illusions, heart-burning, trouble in the womb and joints, biliousness, chill, pain in the private parts, under-arm and body pains. Respiratory problems if Saturn is afflicted. If it is unfavourable, trouble due to poverty, own acts, evil spirits, devils and thieves. Saturn is very troublesome causing total ruin. This Saturn can kill the enemy just by his poisonous looks. If afflicted by the Moon, they will live only by the mercy of others; but this is modified if aspected by a benefic. If well placed by sign or aspect the native is contemplative and considerate, discrete, prudent, systematic, diligent, frugal, intimate, attentive, quiet, sincere, and serious, loves merit, thoughtful, growth and success are slow but sure. Afflicted Saturn indicates trouble and sickness in the part of the body represented by the sign it’s in. Their temperament is subtle, acquisitive, penetrative, careful, secretive, and sometimes gloomy and discontented. There is loss through sickness, misfortune and delays. Generally these natives are deficient in Phosphate and Calcium. They are given to nervousness, timidity, and diffidence in youth; boldness from middle age. The native with Saturn in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces prefers service and gets promotion after pursuing seniors. Fortune smiles on him by retirement time. There is only one marriage; sons are few or none but many daughters. He has large but weak eyes, commanding speech, authoritative look if in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius. This Saturn in Gemini denotes 2 marriages, absence or progeny, progress and success later in life, good education, interest in law, education or medicine. Polite, captivating and tactful if in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces. In Taurus, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius indicates success in government or corporate service. There is trouble through the family, strife with partner, two marriages, sensual, ailing partner, early death of parents (Longevity to parents if in Libra).

Good natured in Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Pisces. Selfish in Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus.”

Jataka Bharnam: “Moon & Saturn conjunction allows the native to enjoy sex with many women, loves and prostitutes. They have a guilty disposition, mixed blood and are devoid of manliness. They do agriculture or labour work and often take part in local elections and may be successful. In a female, this conjunction in the 7th house will give menstrual irregularities and in a male chart they might lack interest in sexual intercourse.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be sickly, famous, inimical to his relatives, adventurous, and virtuous. If the ascendant is otherwise weakened they could be permanently disabled. But if this 6th lord is in his own or exaltation sign they will not be sick; they will love exercise, remain fixed in reality (not a dreamer), earns by hard work and is wealthy and honourable.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 1st house: “If well aspected the person may join the army as a soldier of commander consistent with the strength and disposition of the planets involved. He may become a minister of war or officer concerned with prisons. He will live in the house of his maternal grandfather. If weak or otherwise afflicted the native becomes a robber, thief or leader of a criminal gang.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 1st house: “the native will travers others’ wives, be wicked, skilful, be devoid of fortitude and will be afflicted by windy diseases.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 1st house: “The native might marry someone he has known since childhood, or they were brought up in the same house. Ones partner will be stable and mature. The native will be intelligent and capable of weighing the pros and cons. Afflictions can bring constant travelling. If Venus is also afflicted, the native will be sensual and seek clandestine relations with the opposite sex.”

Commentary: A servant to the wealthy, or at least that how one is generally treated. With heard work they are capable of breaking glass ceilings. They often start out in life having to grow up too soon and may get in to crime, drugs or some other socially unacceptable behaviour that makes them fairly hard early on. But they can easily work their way up to an executive level and they can be excellent administrators; but even then they will find themselves being treated like a servant or a slave. “What? Am I black?”

Saturn in Magha 2nd house

Rules the 7th & 8th houses for Cancer ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Saturn in 2nd house “will give an ugly look, cause one to be without wealth and take an evil path. At a later age he will go to live in a foreign country. He will own vehicle wealth and other luxuries.”

Jataka Bharnam: Saturn in 2nd house “native lives with other men, is addicted to some evil habit (like drinking), is deserted by his own men, wanders in different countries, gets honour from the king, wealth and conveyance.” “It often happens that they have to live far away from their family. Their speech is harsh, they are thrifty, there is some possibility of disease of the mouth and they might not not pretty.”

B.V. Raman: Saturn in the 2nd house: “Unless exalted or in own house it tends to make earning an uphill struggle. Much work with little gain. Harsh speech, unsocial, sorrowful and roaming about aimlessly, the person comes across many opportunities but seldom takes advantage of them. In family life he will be unhappy. He will gain by dealing with metals, storage, mines, labour, etc. He will be unpopular.”

BPHS: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will have many wives, will gain wealth through his wife and be of procrastinating nature.”

B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 2nd house: “The native gets wealth through marriage. If afflicted one may earn wealth through despicable means as trading in flesh and women, not excluding his wife. He may eat the food offered at death ceremonies and wander about seeking such foods. If the 2nd house is a dual sign and afflicted, more than one marriage is likely. If maraka dasha is going on, one may die in periods of the 7th lord. The native will have a wavering mind and will always be inclined towards sensuality.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be devoid of physical vigour, will possess little wealth and will not regain lost wealth.”

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 2nd house: “Conjunct the 2nd lord brings trouble of all sorts. The native suffers from eye and tooth troubles. He will have to eat unhealthy, tasteless, putrid foods. His domestic life will be filled with discontent and quarrels. His wife will not understand him. This may lead to estrangement and separation. If longevity is good he may suffer some severe illness. If in the 6th, 8th, or 12th navamsha the intensity of the results will be reduced in some way.”

Commentary: Can be disruptive to the first marriage, both by delay and divorce. Lots of hidden behaviour in relationships, partner has many closely guarded secrets. Second marriage is said to be more mature, stable and fulfilling than the first. Marriage may be for optics, a kind of formal procedure devoid of any real merging of energies. It’s ;likely they will have a strong prenuptial agreement. One may have hidden wealth and gain by inheritance, and belong to “old money.”

Rahu in Magha 1st house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 1st house “makes a person short lived. He has wealth and strength but suffers from ailments in the upper part of the body like the face or head, etc.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 1st house “gives a wicked and vicious nature. The person deceives his own men, suffers from disease of the brain, is sickly, is extremely lustful and victorious in debate. The native will experience bodily pain in Rahu dasha; he does not have any moral scruples or hesitation in using others of their things, but cannot bear injustice done to themselves. They are extremely clever and cunning in fulfilling their selfish desires.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 1st house: “The health will generally be unsatisfactory calling for treatment other than medical methods. It inclines one to the occult and the serious wilfulness of nature is well marked. A hypocritical super-consciousness towards others is likely. It makes one appear rather odd and eccentric. This combination is usually bad for marriage. Rahu will generally partake in the characteristics of Saturn.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: “The native with Rahu in Janma Lagna is a conqueror of enemies. He makes glory and influence of other people an instrument of his success. Can utilise effectively their powers for himself and others. Insatiable and abundant sex drive. Not being satisfied with his own wife he shows lewdness and adultery. The native gains competence with the help of friends and sudden use of own and others wealth with their effective grace. Bereft of enemy, he is always ready for work, has two wives and is surrounded by many charming ladies and is quick to hold discussion. Rahu indicates a lot of trouble and suffering. The native is inert, selfish, ugly, foolish, cruel, merciless, irreligious, immoral and sick. Rahu in Leo bestows gods plenty: He is wicked, cheats his own people, suffers headaches, ailments, sensual, short lived, rich and strong. In Aries, Taurus or Cancer relieves of all ailments, makes him bold but agitated. He possesses blood-shot eyes, defective nails and dress. Exalted in lagna bestows recognition from government and worry due to sickness. In other signs there can be trouble, grief and strife from government. Can give Raja Yoga in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo or Capricorn denoting prosperity and charity. In other signs offspring may be denied or born dead. If associated with malefics face will be blemished and he will be firm, sensual, very sexy, well-dressed. This position denies happiness from wife and sons. There is trouble on the way, danger form water, one is quarrelsome and extravagant. The native can make great strides in life, gain honour, wealth and favour through religious, educational or scientific achievements. He has a dominating personality, promising self-expression and will have gains of happiness through own initiative; but slow to pick up new ideas and averse to formal education. Well aspected and strongly placed prompts much benevolent work. In masculine signs  (or Scorpio) second wife is indicated. First born fails to survive. In female signs: a single wife, little happiness and an adopted son. The native in generous if in Aries; merciful in Leo; uninvolved in Sagittarius; very interfering if in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, or Pisces; Fault finding is in Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius; disorganised in feminine signs.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 1st house and Ketu in the 7th intensifies the material urges of the individual. It drives one to seek prosperity, personal prowess, greater work skills, higher social status, and to leave ones mark on society. Yet these individuals fair to satisfy their thirst completely. This leads to disenchantment with the people or groups with whom they come in contact. Self-conceit greatly vitiates their interpersonal relationships and these individuals may experience great anguish and phycological frustration at many levels. They may begin to analyse the working of their inner mind. The psychological changes arising out of situation makes them more introverted. As their frustration is transmuted these persons gradually begin to immerse themselves in humanitarian activities and become useful members of society and helpful and understanding workers.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 1st house and Ketu in the 7th “fortunate in that it allows the native to successfully project their personality to the outside world. Rahu is said to do well in the 1st, 9th & 10th houses. If Rahu is placed very close to the ascendant degree, then it gives an out of ordinary physical appearance and personality. The person is usually on the taller side and has a peculiar sort of wordiness attached to their manners, which of course is not very pleasing to others. A heightened sense of self, which can often turn into ta false sense of pride or vanity, is noticed; which can drive them to act mindlessly on many occasions.If Rahu is working through his higher principle, this position provides keen insight and capacity for constant introspection. This is why this combination produces so many philosophers and saints. These men having the true understanding of the working of the cosmic forces don’t like to be addressed by titles. Rahu here can also provide deep insights into mass psychology and future trends. they can be found working in any field, but we do find that many scientists, inventors, explorers, adventures have this placement. They like to have independence in whatever they are doing. Rahu in the first provides good physical stamina and vitality that might be over-extended in exploration in extreme conditions, adventure sports. They often feel lonely. Their sense of individuality does not depend on social intercourse and they have capacity to be alone for long periods of time. Ketu in 7th hinders the formation of any lasting relationship. Unless there are powerful forces over-riding this, life-long bachelors is the norm with this placement. Relationships only stand a chance if their partner gives them lots of room to be themselves and follow their own path. They can be sweet and humble in their social conduct unless afflicted. They always stand by the way they think and feel and are very frank and outspoken about it. This habit does not help them win many friends except those with enough understanding to gage their real intent. Public speaking comes naturally to these people even is they seem shy off-stage. The native has to learn to take the spotlight off one’s own self in order to understand and accommodate others. They are caught up in the dilemma of why should one scatter one’s energies outside when the whole universe exists within the self. This often causes them to completely exclude the world outside. More evolved souls do not make this mistake because they understand self-realisation has no meaning unless it is shared with and includes the world outside as well.”

Authors General Commentary on Rahu in 1st house: Unusual, fascinating, bi-polar, outcast, deformed. Their personality is boundary breaking and they often feel special or chosen in some way. Their personality may show some inconsistency like mania, depression or bi-polar. Some kind of physical deformity is possible. This could be something subtle or it could be major depending on the power of lagnesha, degree, and other factors. These natives often have the ability to fascinate people, and since Rahu rules over magnetism, people are often drawn in by this fascination. They may be attractive or repulsive, but it’s likely they will manage to blend both of these traits into the moment. They are often non-conformist living on the fringes of society or freely mixing with all people regardless of social position. They are often rebels without a cause putting themselves before everyone and everything else. They are likely to do almost anything to be noticed. Many may be affected by fatal alcohol syndrome or other debilities from the womb. Rahu can be recognised by wide set eyes, scanty hair (on the head, body and face), a smoky appearance, some oily or snakelike qualities, and certainly there will be something foreign (mixed race) looking about them compared to the typical features of their family. Some believe that the father could be someone other than the mother’s husband. At the very least this is likely to be questioned at some level.

Rahu in Magha 2nd house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 2nd house “will make the person insecure in their speech, suffer from diseases of the mouth or face. They will be contemptible, receive wealth from the ruler, be happy but short tempered.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 2nd house “disturbed the natives speech making in unpleasant and unwelcome, wealth is destroyed and the person becomes a rover, a wanderer and a loiterer. Conflict, sorrow, and separation from family, loss of connection to paternal property, difficulty accumulation wealth, and valuables may be lost, stolen or eaten by ants.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 2nd house “Peevish, diseased face, friction in family life, danger to eye-sight. Financial affairs uncertain unless other favourable combinations occur. If Jupiter aspects the 2nd house earnings will be good. Money is gained through friends and business.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: “The native with Rahu in 2nd house meets the destruction of his family. A liar, fearless, treasurer, sees the destruction of relatives. Danger from weapons. Influenced by the wicked. This native, even with all his wealth, lives in poverty. Stife and discord with relatives prompts him to conceal the truth. Fear of arms and enemies. Fearless and dependent and receives severe punishment due to scoundrels. He is selfish, unhappy and unemployed in own land, but gets rich in foreign land. Much opposition and hard struggle to gain any success. He has speech defect and suffers from nose and throat problems. Gain and happiness through royal favour. The native becomes a thief, proud, very unfortunate, wealthy through trade in fish, lives with lowly people and is averse to friendly advice. There is loss of wealth, poverty and wandering. He is harsh, talks too much: unpleasant, offensive, disagreeable, untruthful, ungainly, and is denied success. He could gain through leather goods and stolen property. Teeth are irregularly set. Some of these natives are dexterous. If associated with malefic, loss of family and opponents, three marriages. This native is bilious, bright, name and fame, and has more than one wife. The native is poor, sick, troubled through sons and has a dark complexion. If in auspicious position denotes a mark on the chin, defect in the eyes and on the face. This Rahu prompts prosperity, gain through legacy, inheritance, science and learning. He get success through property, employment and business; apical, profitable business alliances. Favourable if in Virgo or Aquarius, or in feminine signs. Loss of patrimony and anscental wealth if in inimical position in masculine signs. Disputes and great losses. Luck comes after death of father. Second marriage. Easy come, easy go. In feminine sign it denotes gain and success through big establishments. He is a spendthrift who values name over wealth.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 2nd house and Ketu in the 8th may give the individual a sense of mission, a feeling that he or she is functioning as an agent for some higher power. In extreme cases this can lead to megalomania. More often it makes one so opinionated that it may be difficult for them to establish a positive rapport with others. These persons have unrealistic expectations of others and want to change them to suit their own specifications. They may not feel content with their achievements, and become obsessed with securing even more. The promise of acquiring greater physical or spiritual merit often brings radical changes in their thinking. They may grow interested in occult sciences as they become increasingly aware of the immense psychophysical possibilities inherent in the process of expending their consciousness.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 2nd house and Ketu in the 8th: “Considered a good placement for the wise management of resources, material and spiritual, available at ones command unless there is affliction. If afflicted the native is sure to go through a period of deprivation followed by a period of plenty. It’s good for material well being but the desires never end. There is an intensity about getting exactly what they want. Satisfaction or the lack of it became a keynote for these natives. Usually gives an attractive personality, especially to female natives if there are favourable supports. It usually imparts an unorthodox beauty and captivating quality to the natives face which seems to mature early. Although this position of the nodes supports a wide variety of professions it has a tendency to favour mathematicians, linguists, astrologers, economists, financiers, bankers, explorers, researchers, singers, and musicians. It favours a capitalist mindset unless aspected by Saturn. If badly afflicted the native can loose his sense of proportion and earn through trickery, deceit, bribery, blackmail or theft. It’s likely many drug dealers have this placement. Money made is usually spent quickly on indulgences: smoking, alcohol, meat. Jupiter aspect can redeem a person. A lot of present day evils arise from this combination, but in its higher aspect it gives a love for truth and a charitable disposition. Ketu in the 8th house is good for carrying out research in any chosen field. If working through its higher aspect the native will not fear death as they understand its power to renew. If well placed and materially inclined it can bring legacies and resources of others later in life; but if it’s weak it will only give expectation and no fulfilment. Affliction can give sexually transmitted disease. There is need to maintain calm in the worldly game of gain and loss. If the native gets carried away in either of these they will find life to be unforgiving. They need to seek balance between the earthy second house and the emotional 8th house.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 2nd house: Lies, false values, corrupt banking, unusual image, creepy smile, impure food. Image is everything to these people. There is usually something unusual about the face they show to the world: the way they speak, dress, the stories they tell, the lineage they claim to be from. Something about their image just doesn’t quite fit who they really are. They may have something unusual or deformed about their face, mouth, eyes, or hair style. They like to project wealth that they don’t have and debt is a common outcome. Money really does have a way of burning a hole in their pocket. They have no sense of the true value of anything and they have no qualms about appropriating someone else’s hard earned income. Some kind of hoarding is also common with this placement, and since they are incapable of properly judging value, their hoards are usually filled with worthless junk.Their speech usually comes across as insincere (if not outright lies). But they are often great storytellers with a liberal use of improper language. Speech impediments are not uncommon with this placement.  They are prone to illnesses of over consumption and likely eat meat and drink alcohol in the quest for what they believe the good life to be. They can be the worst kinds of Hippocrates claiming false lineage and never living up to the values they claim to follow. This actually allows them to do pretty good in society for a while, but eventually the smoke clears and they are exposed for their lies and corruption.

Rahu in Magha 3rd house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 3rd house native “will be proud, hostile to his brothers, strong minded, enjoying longevity and wealth.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 3rd house “native has no fear of the enemy, his fame and glory spreads around the world, he always has the attainment of welfare, grandeur, majesty, happiness, licentiousness or luxurious life; but there is the destruction of younger brothers and cattle. Rahu is auspicious in the 3rd house and allows them to complete their tasks quickly, surprise others with their power of discretion or taking decisions, and fulfilling their responsibility.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 3rd house makes a person “brave for outward appearance. Sudden and unexpected news. Generally bad for brothers. He may incur severe criticism on account of his views and ideas.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: “The native with Rahu in 3rd house is matchless in prowess. Stronger than the strongest animals (lion or elephant), treats all as brethren. Fortunate. Why should he work? This native is most lucky and extends friendship to all but is least actively benevolent; toughest in most difficult work. Sleepless nights for the enemy, renown, lives in luxury, trouble for brothers, loss of cattle wealth, wretched, affluent, valiant, artless, state authority, charitable, proud, firm-minded, long-living. If exalted (Taurus or Gemini), the native is fortunate, blessed with wife and sons; has friends, conveyance and attendants. This Rahu denotes bravery, courage, industry, fortune, wealth, state honour, health, many friends, travel, annihilator of enemies, agricultural wealth. Favourable in exaltation (Taurus or Gemini), own (Aries or Scorpio) or enemy sign (Cancer or Leo). Rahu in Leo gives an imposing personality. This native is sharp, inclines towards spirituality or higher education disciplines, gets good fortune and success though his affectionate dealings, neighbours, journeys, writing or publishing. Favourable in feminine signs. Death inflicting bringing trouble to brothers. Death inflicting to sisters if in feminine signs; for brothers in masculine signs. Two brothers cannot live together. Does not spare even the first born son.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 3rd house and Ketu in the 9th gives many responsibilities along with a tendency towards reclusiveness. These individuals come out of their isolation when their assistance is sought and they are thrust into leadership roles. The leadership may be philanthropic activities, dissemination of the wisdom of the past and sacred scriptures, or in the realm of political organisation and philosophy. They may impart guidance in psychological exploration or industrial organisation. They suffer when they have to follow routine duties; otherwise they do not reject hard work, penance, and contemplation. Gradually they realise that public and charitable work is the best goal in life and they embrace the principle of right action: selfless activity with no expectation of reward.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 3rd house and Ketu in the 9th: “This is considered an auspicious placement for the nodes. Rahu provides material success while Ketu takes care of inner life. Rahu provides courage but also misunderstandings with younger siblings. As is the case with natural malefics the live things of the house suffer (younger siblings and companions), while the non-living things prosper: mental and physical energy, passions, prowess, leadership ability, oratory, scientific rational thinking, writing ability, etc. In some cases strong assistance from younger siblings helps one get ahead in life (or vice versa). Short journeys bring luck, though they can sometimes be unpleasant. Longer journeys to distant countries do not turn out to be suited for the native unless Ketu is strong in a friendly sign and conjunct the yoga karaka planet or exalted planet. A peculiar thing of this placement is that the native can hold a gun or a pen with equal ease; which they choose depends on other things in the chart. Writers, orators, painters, sculptors, instrumentalists, soldiers, athletes (especially those requiring skill and strength of arms), generals, revolutionaries, political and spiritual leaders are likely to have this combination. The physical and metal abilities provided by this Rahu can be uses in positive way if other placements in the chart provide an integrated personality. I have found that, due to the 3rd house emphasis, this placement to produce a number of atheists who swear by science and scientific thought. Late in life that can swing to the other pole and denounce everything material. They have to strike a balance between physics and religion; aggression and compassion, the drive and the path, mater and spirit. If an evolved should is capable of striking this balance they will realise the beauty, dexterity, gentleness, and genius of this placement. The first half of life is usually more fruitful than the second half: if the native achieves fame and fortune in his youth, this will be lost in his 40s. Age 47 begins a new episode in their life: for those who have had a relatively uneventful life until this point they now, after 47, find an opportunity to make their mark on the world. Ketu should be quite strong for this to happen. After age 47 Ketu tries to bring the 9th house to light. For those who have lived a material existence up to this point will find it a miserable experience; especially if they are not willing to change the course of their life.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 3rd house: Fake new, criminal gang, mixed messages, dirty mentality, false courage. These people can often be found mixing amongst unusual groups and possibly criminal gangs. They are so fascinated by teams and tribal affiliations that they get in way over their heads. They want to be seen as special because of these group affiliations and they can be highly manipulative of their group, tribe, team or gang. And often these groups are on some kind of mission to bend the rules or break taboos. They may be famous for their urgent and ambitious messaging style, but as the smoke clears (and it always does), their false reports will be plain for all to see. They are masters at harnessing the power of social media and some might even be effective hackers. Their mixed messages and foggy communication brings a pronounced confusion to interpersonal relationships as others wonder just what kind of message they were trying to send out. Their gestures are often exaggerated in some way; this includes a kind of insincere communication style. Rahu 3rd often signifies smoking, or the inhalation of thick oily smoke that will have its effect on the lungs. Ear problems like tinnitus can be seen with this placement and it’s likely they will have some kind of deformity of the shoulders, hands and arms. Crooked fingers and knobby knuckles is the most common manifestation of this placement. We see a person’s mentality in the 3rd house so Rahu here makes them unusually often criminal in their intent since they don’t play by the same rules as the rest of us. Rahu’s effect on the kama trine ensures that these people will break the rules to satisfy their desires. They can be exceedingly courageous, but in many ways it’s a false courage that tends to get them in over their heads. Hobbies are also seen in the 3rd house so they will likely have unusual, smokey and boundary breaking hobbies. Since small commercial ventures are also a part of 3rd house we can also find these natives doing some kind of shady business. The 3rd house is the first upachaya and Rahu is said to do well in these houses. Some astrologers say that he is exalted in gemini, and it’s true one can do well in the material world with this placement, but it’s the kind of doing well that comes with the suffering of the insatiable desire to fulfil their desires. This position works well for used cars salesmen, cheats, media activists. [Note: regarding journalism or messaging that the Sun will seek after truth and Venus will seek balance.]

Rahu in Magha 4th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 4th house person “will be a fool, contemptuous, causing misery to friends, short lived and seldom happy.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 4th house native “losses all happiness, opposed by own people, sons, friends, and waders in lands other than his own. Health of native’s mother is disturbed, he suffers mental tension, disputes over immovable property.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 4th house make the native “foolish in behaviour; few friends; will be subjected to fraud or guilty of fraudulent action.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: “If Rahu is in the 4th house one’s mother is always indisposed; the native himself suffers from psychic problems. If Rahu is in Aries, Cancer, Gamini or Virgo the aforementioned results are modified: the native gets happiness from mother, stability of mind and is a favourite of government. The native’s mother is always ailing and in mental agony. In Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, or Virgo one gets honour from the king. This native is always unhappy, a fool, living in foreign lands, quarrelsome and miserable, without well-wishers, and issueless. He has much travelling, trouble from womenfolk, eat., separation from community, lonely in solitary place, association with low, wicked, a back-biter, has only son and is thin and lean wife. There is trouble and loss to parents and relatives. He is haughty, insolent, and his mother suffers from biliousness and she dies from an attack of sticks or stones. There is death of materials through poisoning or arm wounds, enemy of own people. If afflicted, the native knows no happens. The native is prosperous, has two wives, attendants or he himself is in service. If conjoined by a malefic these results are certain. If associated with a benefic these results are modified. Rahu in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cncer or Virgo gives Raja Yoga. Much travelling with a lot of surprises. Trouble if with Sun. Good luck from age 36 to 56. This Rahu denotes gain through property: sudden and unexpected. He is inventive, gentle, trust worthy, long-living, geologist and has illegitimate offspring. In masculine signs it denotes a second wife. Conjunct Saturn it denotes murder due to rivalry. Rahu-Mars afflicted by Mars-Moon denote suicide or poisoning. Afflicted by Mars or Saturn indicates poverty, especially if Rahu is in a masculine sign. Financial difficulties are felt by the father: bankruptcy or termination of service, etc. In Gemini, Leo or Aquarius there will be wealth but no off-spring, 2nd marriage, sudden death of ones parents in early childhood. In feminine signs denotes little gain through business by honest means, success in service or partnership, adoption is possible, one marriage and 3 or 4 children, noble partner, bold and affectionate. Saturn-Jupiter association or good aspect with other planets is fortunate.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 4th house and Ketu in the 10th may bring emotional suffering and the frustration of desire. These natives often enjoy many physical comforts and opportunities for sense gratification, but first they may pass through heart wrenching situations of utter hopelessness. Their despair may not appear on their faces; indeed, others may accuse them of insensitivity or of exaggerating their troubles. These emotional setbacks may seriously affect their relationships. Those with extremely weak egos may suffer from schizophrenia; those with exaggerated egos may become ruthless and pursue their objectives without consideration for others. When they begin to deal with their inner issues constructively, they prepare themselves to meet any situation without giving undue importance to their person conveniences, dislikes, or troubles. They begin to realise that life is not for idleness but for working simply for the works sake, without wasting time or licking one’s wounds.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 4th house and Ketu in the 10th: “Everything is fine as long as the native is not ambitious about career. Contentment is the key word of this placement, A strong attachment to mother or mother figures in seen; similar to Rahu conjunct Moon. Some help from the mother or the mother’s side helps one get ahead in life. The father figure is usually absent from a young age or ignored. They no not like vocations that involve a lot of travelling. They prefer to have a permanent home in a particular village, town or city where they spend the majority of their life. They usually prefer smaller towns to bigger cities. 4th house vocations like property dealers, agriculturists, dairy farmers, transporters, professional drivers, child psychologists, children story writers, interior decorators, architects, construction engineers, etc. are favoured by this placement. At least a couple changes of profession are common. Ketu in the 10th hinders job satisfaction. It becomes the natives duty to insulate the emotional aspects of life rather than the practical aspects. A sudden fall is imminent if the native gets over ambitious in career or reputation. Any attempt to suppress the active subconscious can make their lives dull and sad.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 4th house: Boundary issues, unstable foundations, learning disabilities, environmental pollution, no sense of belonging. This is a very difficult placement since it affects the very foundation of our life, mother, home, education. Mother is often ill or absent from a person’s early life. At best she would have been inconsistent in her motherly nurturing affections. There may be some kind of unconventional parentage that disrupted the early rhythms, routines and habits. These people are often raised on the wrong side of the tracks, in factory districts, on or near polluted lands. As children these people were often disruptful in the classroom and it’s possible they suffered from some kind of learning disability. If they get to university it’s likely that this too will be disrupted by some unique set of circumstances.  It’s often due to the unusual circumstances of their early childhood that they will have difficulty fitting in anywhere. They often go away from their birth place and live amongst other cultures in order to feel any kind of comfort, but any true sense of relaxation, contentment or release will elude them. These natives often remain renters and if they do have home or land they often come by it from false pretence: bank fraud, squatters, constant problems with landlords and caretakers who do not have proper boundaries will never provide the kind of foundation needed to establish solid roots in a place or cultural community. Some will seek to defend the land rights of others. And this position is ripe for cultural appropriation. Nannies, babysitters, step parents, early childhood teachers, gardeners and others who take on caretaking and parental roles without being fully legitimate will be seen with Rahu in 4th. Ultimately these people never learned proper boundaries and will invade the physical and emotional space of others and do not have the skills to keep others from doing the same to them. No matter what they do to put up boundaries there will always be a weak point somewhere.

Rahu in Magha 5th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 5th house “will give a nasally voice to the person, cause them to be issueless, hard-hearted and suffering from stomach ache.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 5th house “makes the native devoid of happiness and friends, they suffer a sharp pain in they abdomen and they loiter and wander aimlessly.” “ There may be obstacles in the birth of the first child.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 5th house “The native suffers from colic, mistaken by others and unfriended; will loose a number of children; hard-hearted and unconventional; heart trouble.” “If afflicted there could be scandal through children, or strange courtships. If Venus associates with this Rahu there could be homo-sexual tendencies.””

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 5th house “Delay and difficulty in the 1st born. Worry though short tempered partner. Incurable ailments of the chest. If this Rahu does not indicate good fortune all efforts are useless. The native is blessed with son, his partner suffers stomach problems, faces growing distress and worry. On use to labour if unlucky. He is foolish and has few friends, obstacles in pleasure, lots of misunderstandings. He is cruel, timid, kind but poor and has nasally sound. If conjunct Moon, son is denied. If moon is not here one’s son will be shabby but off-spring are possible if Rahu is in Aries, Taurus, Cancer or Leo. The last two signs promise male children. But worry and trouble through sons; a pain even in the womb. Death due to starvation if in Square aspect [sic]. Indigestion, averse to learning, even with best efforts fails to earn enough, loss of sons, low company, dirty, dull, dark complexioned. Disrespect in dasha period. The native is not blessed with offspring: death of son due to snake curse. Blessed with sons after snake worship. He is bilious, vicious gets punishment from government and lives in a backward village. But this Rahu protects the native from many troubles, calamities and hazards. He is blessed with long living, fortunate offspring, has gains through service, interest in sports and cultural activities. Afflicted Rahu denotes loss and damage though speculation; loss of property through children. Favourable aspect denotes gain through investment and children, and transferring much of this happiness to them. This Rahu is unfavourable in masculine signs; gainful in feminine signs. In masculine signs  the native is wise and famous, but proud. He commits error of choice in subjects: when fit for law he goes too engineering and hence is unsuccessful. There is loss and trouble through business, wife and children. Partner suffers from organic defects including menstrual irregularities and second marriage is inevitable. If heavily afflicted, marriage is denied; illicit relationships. For want of conjugal pleasure these natives are busy with welfare programs. Their published books are their offspring and source of renown. If this Rahu is in feminine signs, he is cal, discrete and detached; highly educated, a seasoned writer, reputed and well known, twice wedded. He is blessed with sons, but generally the first born is a daughter.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 5th house and Ketu in the 11th activates the persons creativity in a paradoxical manner, restricting material creativity in order to impels the creative forces to higher levels from which beneficence of different kinds can be radiated. These individuals may experience difficulty in having offspring of their own, but on a mental plane they are very active. The keep themselves extremely busy. Material creativity might suffer, as may sociability, and there can be anxiety about financial security. Despondency  due to such experiences makes them seek compensation on the mental plane where they attain some degree of satisfaction. Ultimately they may become both impersonal and quite successful in relationships. They attain significant social status and may make a great deal of money. They eventually realise that their happiness and peace of mind do not depend on specific work involvements but on a trust in the law of karma. Even in small everyday activities their actions are now guided by an attitude of helpfulness.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 5th house and Ketu in the 11th: “This combination can produce the best and the worse type of human being. The 5th and 11th deal directly with ones mental make-up and interaction with others. They have abundant mental energy which can be used for good or evil. Rahu in the 5th provides this mental energy along with highlighting 5th house affairs — intellect, creativity, self-consciousness, past life merits and demerits, children, love of the self and others, acting, confidence, education, publications, mantra, the chosen deity, etc. This is also the house governing mass media and cinema. This is the reason why most actors and other people associated with movie and stage productions have this combination. In my view, photography originates from this placement. In many charts of photographers I have come across this nodal placement in 90% of them. Under malefic influence Rahu in 5th can produce megalomania and even dictators if Sun & Mars are involved — dictators of nations as well as the self styled dictators of home and workplace. It can also produce crooks and swindlers, thieves, thugs if Mercury is afflicted or involved in this combination. It is thus a very sensitive place for Rahu where one need to channel their creative and intellectual energies for the benefit of the group or the sphere of ones influence. In other words, this energy needs to be channelled through he 11th house. There is usually a break in formal education making vocational training preferable to classical education. When working in it’s higher principle, 11th house Ketu allows channelling to happen with ease. When afflicted it can block the 11th house so that one does not have many friends nor are they involved in any social or humanitarian projects resulting in a self-centred life. The self-conscious has to become a part of the group consciousness, and form a part of the collective human consciousness, before finally merging with the greater universal consciousness. 5th house is fire, the 11th house is air; air has no warmth without fire and fire cannot burn without air. The fire produced in 5th house should be dissapated in tot the 11th house so it reaches those who require it. This is the challenge for these natives. Ketu in the 11th house produces misunderstanding with the elder brother and is not considered favourable. Some anxiety on the part of children, their birth and development is also seen. If having children the native usually makes for a concerned parent.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 5th house: Drama queen, gambler, forbidden lovers, narcissist. These people want all the attention, they feed off the attention and the drama they create, and their false sense of entitlement allows them to create a lot of drama. Social media influencers and others who project any kind of fantasy life that is really just smoke and mirrors would have this kind of combination (5th owner in 12th house would certainly ensure the fantasy part). They are gamblers and risk takers. They could be the grandmother cheating at cards, the politician accused of insider trading or the sports fixer seeking advantage. They often want to get some kind of advantage from their staged creative expressions. They like to break the rules just for fun. They are often obsessed with the idea of romantic love and they could be serial daters or tinder professionals. Their desperate search for “true love” often leads them down the road to heartbreak. This is also the position of the forbidden lover and illegitimate children (mars aspect can bring an abortion while Jupiter’s aspect can bring many (often adopted)  children. These people will often use their children to get privilege. In poor chart we can find welfare moms and other kinds of negligent parents who use their children for their own selfish ends. They are fascinated by that slight increase in heart rate that comes switch gambling and romance. Rahu here can also give someone an irregular heart beat (especially if sun is involved).  It’s often said that these natives have very sharp minds, but they often prove to be more clever than truly intelligent as Rahu in 5th can cause them to miscalculate (especially if Rahu is influencing mercury as well), make a mistake or obfuscate the matter somehow. Creativity and originality are seen in the 5th so all of this gets a little smoky, certainly unique, taboo and boundary breaking. They can misrepresent their productivity and they are all about productivity: more and more and more, it’s never enough. And the eventual disposal of the smoke will reveal the deeper truths and in the end they often end up without any real friends, just snakes and backbiters.

Rahu in Magha 6th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 6th house man is born “troubled by enemies or oppressed by malefic planets [sic], has ulcers in his rectum, is wealthy and enjoys longevity.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 6th house “causes the destruction of enemies and makes the native wealthy giving strength from the company of dirty, sinful people. He suffers back pain and cattle remain sickly and diseased. One may have an ulcer.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 6th house: Long-lived and wealthy, troubled by enemies, ghosts and diseases of the private parts. He will also suffer from sickness of a puzzling nature. There is liability to mental derangement if the Moon and Saturn join Rahu. The person will have many cousins and his private life will be scandalous.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 6th house “destroys all the natives enemies. The natives strength, wisdom, valour and conscience are stable. He is matchless. Rahu denotes the destruction of enemies, gain of wealth, knowledge, vigour, no gain through uncles; wealth through alien ruler; trouble in back; longevity; prosperity and noble birth. The native is a hero, handsome, intelligent; respected known [sic] like a ruler. If well aspected, all evils fade away. A strong Rahu indicated cattle wealth but progeny to uncles is denied, or there are daughters only. A member of the family dies in foreign land. Aunts children fail to survive. Goes abroad to become a widow. If afflicted, trouble in the rectum, respected. Trouble in teeth and lips. This Rahu denotes wealth, progeny and pleasure of every shade. If exalted, he is strong and brave: radical, affluent, with conveyance, jewellery, wealth, fortune, and robust health. This Rahu indicated and unstable mind of the father and maternal uncle. The native is infirm, imbecile, absence or enemies, friendly, full of riches. Death due to blow from stick, stone, quadruped, falling from a tree or from drowning. This native is pleasant, tolerant, prosperous. Pleasure with princess if Moon associates with Rahu here. Wealth if associated with benefic, and there will be grace of the government, absence of sickness, wealth, family happiness and loss of enemies. This Rahu promotes health and strength and denotes trusted employees; favours service; fortune through paternal relative; cattle wealth; benefit though prosperous uncles and aunts; danger from service in army or navy. Favourable in feminine signs. There will be success through games and sports. He favours wrestlers and has a lucky partner but early separation though her death and faces many difficulties in promotion. He has fortune after 30 and service from the 23rd year.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 6th house and Ketu in the 12th makes these people intensely concentrated on material pursuits. Often their dreams, psychic experiences and spiritual contacts affect them at deeper levels, producing radical transformations in their mental attitude. They feel unhappy about social differences and may face illness, litigations, and personal accusations but they confront them with courage and confidence, and the final outcome works in their favour. The experience gained in these confrontations gives them inner confidence. Their dream experiences, increased sensitivity, and psychic visions initiate them in the knowledge of supra physical realms. The perception of higher realities now becomes more meaningful to them then the enjoyment of physical comforts and social acclaim. They gradually establish greater control over their psycho-physical functions.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 6th house and Ketu in the 12th: “Rahu is said to function well in the upachaya houses and Ketu has a natural affinity for the 12th house. This is generally true, but when it comes to giving hard times this is the toughest placement. Rahu in the 6th highlights 6th house things like work, service, health, enmity, distillation and discrimination, dietary and personal habits, accidents, diseases, discipline and austerity, opposition, litigation, power, helpers, medicine, healing. Natives with this placement have come to terms with all of this negative energy to some extent. 6th house represents adolescent years so from this early period these natives show an immaculate sense of method and order in their lives (provided there are supporting factors). If this Rahu is afflicted they can indulge in mindless behaviour that harms themselves and others which they come to later regret. This is a good combination for physicians, healers, therapeutic vocations. The native usually deals with foreigners and benefits from them in some way: foreign service, tourism, import-export, shipping, etc. They have capacity for hard work, and a dint of fearlessness is noticed. Ketu in the 12th usually gives some psychic experience either through dream or visions [or related to the functions of planets in conjunction]. This is a good position for spiritual pursuits, but Ketu has to be acting through his higher principle. The native usually has some understanding of the divine forces in a very personal way. This position of Ketu usually brings about some unpleasant experiences: imprisonment, isolation, accidents, but this is often a good thing as they are paying off karmas from their past. Isolation is very important for these natives as it can bring out latent abilities. After this realisation follows the hard work indicated by Rahu in 6th. A peculiar trait of this Rahu is that no matter how hard they try to avoid enmity, it seems to follow them; this makes forgiveness one of the most important qualities the native can develop. This combination is also beneficial in modern day politics where dealing with enemies and behind the scenes manoeuvres comes naturally to the native. These native usually prevail over their enemies, but enemies can also bring their downfall, and even their death. This position of the nodes usually give a strong constitution but other planets involved can cause serious disease or difficult to diagnose disorders. Sudden unexpected death can also happen if there are other contributing factors. Worldly recognition or success comes only after a long struggle, these natives are very career conscious. They can be headstrong and there is danger of misuse of power, but Ketu in 12th will bring their downfall to teach them the lesson. The native has to guard against rigidity which comes from too much order and discipline in life. They also have to guard against loosing themselves in extreme indulgence from having a complete lack of discipline. Financially the native is neither a miser nor a spendthrift, but they often take up either extreme asceticism or extreme indulgence as a means of attaining liberation. Some few take up the middle path once wisdom dawns on them.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 6th house: Provocation, exploitation, playing the victim. The 6th house is the 2nd upachaya house where Rahu is said to do well. He is often called the king maker in this position. He’s at home in this house of crime and accusation where he can exploit people’s vulnerabilities for their own gain. They can be masters at playing the victim role and know just how to exploit and manipulate a bad situation. Because of Rahu’s smoky ways it can be difficult to distinguish the exploited from the exploiter. These people make very good corrupt officials capable of engineering scandals while maintaining their own innocence. Virgo is the innocent virgin and this status, though likely untrue, is used to gain advantage somehow. They might be working behind the scenes as disaster capitalists pretending to help while exploiting the situation for maximum personal benefit. Ambulance chasers (lawyers), Dr Feel-good (drug dealers), bullies and others who seek to exploit the marginalised people will have this placement. Sometimes it’s the subtleties of a healthcare career that thieves in unbalanced situations. Things are never what they seem when Rahu is involved. Rahu in the 6th might be the provocateur who loves to start fights, poke the sleeping bear and lure people into the trap. It’s the young vixen in the short skirt attracting the wrong kind of attention and claiming innocence. It’s the” protester” instigating violence to justify a heavy police crackdown.  Rahu in 6th house is fascinated by drugs, crime, debt, war, disagreement, prostitution, illness and every kind fo imbalance. This can be a very dangerous place for Rahu to get in over his head. Someone may be using medicinals improperly and will be inconsistent in following any kind of therapy. They often avoid personal responsibility at all costs. They may have unusual enemies or illnesses, stomach problems and digestive issues are common with this Rahu. They are likely to prefer (or even practice) alternative forms of healing which can go either way.  We also see peoples pets and service personnel in the 6th house. Both of which will likely be exotic or unusual in some way. And it’s possible they will complain that “good help is hard to find.”

Rahu in Magha 7th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 7th house “native loses his wealth through his association with the opposite sex, deserted by his beloved, suffers from loss of semen, is self-willed and foolish.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 7th house give “opposition from ones own partner or one becomes the cause of death of one’s own partner. The natives partner is wrathful, angry, quarrelsome, sickly, and diseased; one remains dissatisfied with married life. Intercaste marriage, losses from business partners, and delay in beginning ones profession.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 7th house: “The native brings ill-repute to family; especially if a female. Will be unconventional and heterodox. Will have affairs with outcastes or foreigners. The natives wife will suffer from disorders of the womb. He eats good and rich food, has luxurious habits and suffers from diabetes, ghosts and the supernatural.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 7th house “Wife dies from infections to the generative organs like the boiling material charred in the cauldron. Separation from relatives and public slander. Partner meets the same fate through disease as the liquid boiling in the pan on fire. He faces danger of separation from kinsfolk and disgrace. The native is crazy deranged, idle, a wanderer, short-tempered, viciously quarrelsome. He is hostile to partners. He dies or get violent, furious, quarrelsome, sick. He is ugly, restless, malicious, strife and opposition; faces hinderance in every work and is deprived of sensual pleasure. Women will have menstrual problems. As their partner is not willing and co-existing, the native is driven to other women. The native is conceited, sensual and sick. Conjunction with Moon denotes every pleasure and a devoted partner. With other planets, a perverse, unfaithful, characterless woman. Want of manhood, wisdom, independent, a widower, and get poverty through women. He also lack sexual desire and the partner is haughty. If Rahu is in the 1st, 6th, 7th, 8th, 11, or 12th house, in a square or a trine, the native is a minister, valiant, strong, famous, affluent, blessed with sons. He will have trouble though wife; body-aches; much enmity lost through trade. This Rahu is fatal to partner and indicates two marriages. First one dies; second suffered from fibroid. If conjoined with malefics, there is goitre and other glandular broths around the neck. If benefic influence is there, the results are modified. The native is a diabetic, associates with widow, strife with relatives, touchy, spiteful, vain, discontented contact with lewd women. If Rahu is exalted or in own sign there will be gain and success from journeys. Luck through sinful acts. Success though speculation and lottery, games of chance and races. Infection though impure women. This Rahu denotes more friends than enemies, gain though dealing with others; pleasure and benefit through women. He has a wise and wealthy partner and gains after marriage. Unfavourable if in masculine sign. The native pays for the sins of their previous life. There will be broken home, loss in business and in service; either want or loss of wealth. If this Rahu is in Gemini, Virgo, Libra, or Sagittarius the marriage is denied. In other signs marriage brings misfortune only. But in feminine signs there can be success, gain, happiness, and prosperity through marriage. This Rahu is not maraka (death inflicting) but can cause danger to those indicated by the house. Of lagna: parents. Of 2nd house: and elder of the family. Of 3rd house: siblings. Of 4th: parents. Of 5th: sons. Of 8th: sisters. Of 9th: brothers and sisters. Of 10th: parents. Of 11th: elder brother or son. Of 12th: uncle or wife.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 7th house and Ketu in the 1st may produce restrictions in ones relationships. Psychologically the person can be self0-centred; socially, he is sometimes lonely. He expects the world to conform to his terms while he himself is reluctant to compromise. Such individuals may find partners in life, wether business , social life, or in marriage, not working in harmony with them. Enduring amiability or happiness are difficult to establish. Marital problems do not necessarily arise due to any lack of desire to achieve harmony and adjustment, but could be caused by illness, voluntary or involuntary separate living arrangements, divorce. Such experiences may lead the individual to extreme degrees of loneliness; he feels no one understands or appreciates him. These people have a tendency to relapse into seclusion, to keep away from others physically as well as in thought. When they begin to develop self-awareness, they then find themselves well prepared to undertake severe austerities and to assume a spiritual course in life.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 7th house and Ketu in the 1st: “The native is pronounced worldly wise even when they are functioning on an otherworldly plane. Rahu in the 7th takes good care on ones social standing between the years of 24-42 unless there are overriding negative indications. The spouse is usually more mature than the native and a rise of fortune takes place after marriage. If Rahu is working through his lower principle than the motive behind these relationships is questionable and balance is not maintained causing misunderstandings, break-ups and abuse at various levels. If the nodal axis is afflicted these natives will carry out the mindless sexuality we see in modern media. Balance in sexuality is absent allowing the darker side to take over. They often enjoy vocations dealing with people like counsellors, psychologists, management experts, project coordinators etc. They usually start something on their own as they would rather be boss of their own small private setup than work under someone in a bigger set up. Ketu in the ascendant usually adds some psychic dimension to the personality and gives a self effacing nature. An aspect from Jupiter will solve 90% of the problems that can arise from this placement. Natives are usually short in height and have an out of ordinary appearance if Ketu is close to the ascendant degrees. The ascendant lord needs to be well placed to keep these natives from being too under-confident in regards to appearance and personality. An exaggerated self-consciousness may be apparent. Ketu in the 1st is also supposed to give low appetite and peculiar tastes in foods. They can internalise energy and develop along spiritual lines. Spiritual transformation usually takes place in later years. The native has to be careful about depending on relationships to drive his or her sense of self.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 7th house: Taboo relationships, deals with the devil, people pleaser. Rahu in the 7th house is notorious for difficult relationships. These people tend to think they need a partner to save them and they will agree to almost anything to get it. Fulfilling their agreements is quite another matter, but they are often offering more than they can do or they are saying they can do things that they cannot. They like taboo relationships, exotic partners are common: cultural mixing, same-sex partners, religious differences, large gaps in age, polygamy or open relationships are just some of the possibilities with this. These days it can even lead to a kind of devout celibacy (which is certainly strange in this day and age). Cheating, or being cheated on is common. They seek agreement and will use any means to get it. It can be very difficult for them to say no and once they’ve compromised they often find they’ve agreed to more than they bargained for. They often cannot see the agreement for what it is or their partner for who they are. And the terms of the contract are soon broken. This is another position that can give illegal business practices. They are more than willing to make a deal with the devil to get ahead. This is like the oil business or any other pollution generating business. But every kind of dodgy deal can come out of this Rahu placement. There is something about these people that is out of tune, they lack balance and harmony and seek equity through unequal terms. They can be very diplomatic and counsellors and advisors who break the rules or deal with taboo topics might  have this in their chart.  This Rahu can cause fertility problems or sexual debility (check Moon, Venus & Mars).

Rahu in Magha 8th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 8th house “native is short lived, does impure acts, is disabled, developed gout, and rheumatism and is blessed with few children.” “Rahu with Mars can bring cancer.” “Causes death by leprosy, by taking food mixed with poison, by venomous bites, or small pox and the like.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 8th house brings the “destruction of one’s enemies, but there is pain in the anus, urinary disease, windy disease, enraged testicles and he remains restless and troubled. Disputes and quarrels over inheritance, fear of theft and wealth earned in questionable ways.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 8th house: “The native will suffer from public censure and humiliation. He will be troubled by many ailments. He will be vicious, quarrelsome and unscrupulous. If the moon is in conjunction with a malefic planet and Rahu is in the 5th, 8th, or 12th house the native will suffer from mental disorders.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 8th house “Complains of gastralgia or globes hysterics etc. Deserted by own family; denied patrimony. Respected and recognised by the rulers and pandits. Fortune smiles once; but losses mock him again and again. The native is forsaken by the noble for no reason. Gain of sufficient wealth from government; sometimes it is lost. Suffers from gastritis. Well-built, living in foreign land, short-tempered; evil-doer; wretched. The native is free from danger, suffers from diseases of the generative organs, diabetes, hydrocele; gains from defeated enemies. Much trouble and suffering. He is praised by the state and pandits but condemned by some. Many ups and downs. Denied patrimony. Stomach problem through hard labour. Malicious; short-lived; bilious. The native is poor, timid, inert, impatient, very cunning, thin, miserable, cruel, luckless; eczematous (skin becomes rough, inflamed, itchy, blistered, bleeding). If lord of the 8th is exalted the native lives till 60. This Rahu indicates a native who is extravagant, sick, strife with brothers, life in a foreign land, unhappy family life. The native is denied happiness through wife, children, honour, education, suffers from diseases of the rectum, diabetes, hinderances and enemies. If Rahu is in Gemini: valiant in celebrated. Danger in the 32nd year; if with benefic it’s in the 50th year. Favourable if in own house or exalted. It promotes health, promises longevity, grants gifts, legacies, and inheritances from the dead. It’s not favourable if in masculine signs. There will be trouble, strife, want, money through unfair means leading to imprisonment; painful end in unconscious state. Of Gemini indicates a quarrelsome partner of a poor family. Luck does not favour independent business; resorts to service. In feminine signs, it conductive to a patient, wealth accumulating, dependable partner. She dies before the native: conscious at death time; foresees it. If the native accepts a bribe, he is not caught. Fortune from 26-36. First part of life is unhappy; if afflicted, later life.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 8th house and Ketu in the 2nd attracts super-physical powers. Such individuals often display tremendous energy which they utilise to achieve extraordinary results. They make their mark on society. Under favourable planetary conditions they create a niche for themselves and may become greta scientists, exceptional police officers, politicians or doctors. If the individual is preoccupied with sense gratification, however, he or she may be drawn towards unapproved activities such as smuggling, drug trafficking or gambling. The results of Rahu in the8th are difficult to predict because the range of the unseen work which this house represents is very extensive. Whatever their achievements in life, this placement will lead to the sudden psychological transformation of these individuals.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 8th house and Ketu in the 2nd “Confers long life, but Ketu in the 2nd is not considered good for maintaining a smooth financial situation throughout life unless Ketu is in Sagittarius or Pisces; but even then they will have to suffer substantial loss at least once in life. It gives peculiarities in the way the native handles money: miserly with small spending but carefree with big purchases. Gambling can be a major downfall of this placement: this is the worst nodal placement for luck in speculation, while feeling the desire to gamble. Extreme cases can see the native gamble on almost everything in life; including their own life. A lot of natives who squander ancestral property are born with this placement. This Ketu gives a wandering nature and pleasurable travels. Many renown travellers have this nodal placement. Since the native is not inclined to follow orthodox religious rituals he should strive to develop some personal philosophy in life. Ketu in the 2nd causes bitterness in family life, which requires patience on the natives part. The native may end up under the control of their life partner at some point. This Ketu can adda sarcastic tone to the voice and the native can be a bitter critic and use foul language. Rahu in the 8th promises legacies and wealth from the partner. At the very least the native can be forced to learn humility by accepting resources from others. This Rahu favours 8th house professions: scientists, researchers, explorers, adventurers, insurance agents, bankers, spies, detectives, writers of mystery stories, occultists and all kinds of employment involving old things. If working through its lower principle this Rahu can make the native commit some bad deeds similar to those of Rahu in the 2nd house. It’s a very dangerous placement as the dark side of the 8th house is a very destructive force. There is a thin line between the balanced use and the excessive use of 8th house energies. The native can totally neglect 2nd house affairs or handle them in a very peculiar manner. The native needs to control their speech. It can be better to communicate in writing as their speech will often be misunderstood. Optimism also needs to be cultivated as these natives can be overly pessimistic.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 8th house: This is a very dangerous place for Rahu since his fascination leads a person thru the field of sex, death, catastrophe, guilt and transformation. They often like kinky or unusual sex and sexual partners. They can try all kinds of crazy things and still not be satisfied. They can become sex addicts with this (but we need to see more than this to confirm). They can take part in all kinds of risky behaviour and will likely cheat death several times before pushing their luck just a little too far. They may be obsessed with intimacy seeking to know what lies just below the surface. This can make them good researchers or detectives. Negative placements with this Rahu may cause them to stock their prey. They can be very sneaky and move around undetected.  Their focus will be on the wealth of others: their partners’ wealth, the value of trusts, the hunger for inheritance, or merely for easy unearned wealth. Sometimes these people marry rich, get a disappointing inheritance, or live off the money or trusts, but they might also be the one who merely leeches off their partner; much better at taking than giving. They can be good in emergency situations, but similar urges as those seen with Ketu in 6th come up here as they seek to gain advantage thru catastrophic circumstances, emergencies, secrets. And secrets are a big part of the 8th house. This goes along with research and detective work, but there are many other ways they might use the secrets they know for their own advantage. This can lead them to occult, astrology, tarot and other methods of divination. My teacher calls Rahu in 8th, the “wanderer.” Their fascination leads them to cross the bridge, go to the other side of the tracks, enter the forbidden forest, and go overseas. Since the 8th house is all about sudden events, it’s never long before their fascination has moved on to something else.

Rahu in Magha 9th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 9th house “makes a person unfavourable in their speech (ie. overly critical). One becomes the headman of a community or village, mayor of a city and sinful in deeds.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 9th house “makes a person irreligious but happy; roving and devoid of wealth. Wealth is lost, happiness from co-borns in lost, and one suffers pain in their body. Gives sudden attainment of wealth but father might face exceptional financial crisis. They person reforms religious law to suit his own needs, but he is religious. He openly opposes any kind of exploitation and outward hypocrisy in religion.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 9th house: “The native will have. A nagging and domineering wife. He will be impolite and misery, suffering from emaciation and generally inclined to loose morals. He will hate his father and revile God and religion. But he may become famous and acquire much wealth.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 9th house “The native is a scholar; accredited for his virtues; impressive in speech in an assembly; cultured and humane; veneration; belief and devotion in gods and sacred places. Gainful upbringing in his own family. The native is revered for his merit, learned, generous. Gives away useful things in alms; never leaving a job in the middle; perseverance; virtuous; keeping with family traditions; spotless reputation. Helps and supports his relatives; contented with partner. Affluent landlord and agriculturist. The native shows faith in religions other than his own. He is in want of truth, conduct, luck and wisdom. Much travelling, pauper, unfriendly to relative; some physical ailment. Chief of village or town. Vicious. Serving others. Sex with low women. This native has many attendants, prosperous, fortunate, little faith in religion, poor health, eloquent speaker, agreeable cordial with partner, affectionate, issueless, proud of his community, liar, speaks ill of his religion and is unmindful of his duty. If in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, or Virgo: good reputation. Affliction is unfavourable; much travelling. This Rahu denotes mental sharpness and gain through educational, legal and religious affairs. Gain through voyages and foreign affairs. Highly intuitive. This Rahu is favourable in feminine signs. If in masculine signs, the native it the only son; has elder sisters only. It works as a maraka (death inflicting) for brothers. In choice of partner the native shows no respect for caste or creed, age or virginity if this Rahu is in (Air sign) Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius; authoritative. Respectful and affectionate partner if in fire sign. Rahu in feminine signs suggests a daughter is born first; a son may come in old age. Maraka (death inflicting) for sisters. Worships Hanuman. Brothers must live separately if they want gain and success.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 9th house and Ketu in the 3rd produces a psychological storm which may be religious in nature. These individuals become charged with ideas that could seem idealistic, unconventional, and provocative to others. Rahu makes the individual absorbs in his or her thoughts, perhaps with some sympathy for others, but often without external demonstration of it, That may appear as if some superior spirit has taken possession of their personality which, under malefic planetary influences, could make them ruthless in executing their nefarious programmes. In large numbers of people, this placement of the nodes creates attraction towards religion, holy places, tantric rituals, and austerities — all with the intention of securing greater personal advantages. There is a gulf between the secret aspirations of these individuals and their external activities, which may make them insecure, temperamental, peevish, or irritable. Coordination between the hidden ambitions and aspiration for psychic power and their actual deeds may be difficult to achieve. But this is the stage where, with some guidance and luck, they can obtain much spiritual merit. They are well prepared for psychological metamorphosis which could radically change the direction of their life course.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 9th house and Ketu in the 3rd: “These natives usually meet their destiny in a foreign land or through foreigners. The native usually believes in religious symbolism though not striating in the orthodox sense. The native is seen to concentrate on 9th house affairs: long journeys, philosophy, inner life, foreign influences, ethical disposition , higher mind, initiation and self realisation. It must not be misunderstood that the native will follow organised religion; he is more likely to develop a personal philosophy. Ketu in the 3rd house shows some sort of skill related to the 3rd house like writing, painting or other skills involving the hands, but Ketu usually requires some additional good conjunction or aspect to bring out these latent talents. Ketu is even more dangerous than Rahu for the live things related to 3rd house like younger siblings. An unhappy first half to life makes childhood a time not worth remembering. When poorly placed this Ketu is like a dog roaming the streets with much unnecessary and fruitless travels and wandering. Whether the native rises from their childhood scars asa saviour or a revengeful manic depends on the over all chart. Aspects from Jupiter of Ketu’s depositor can usually iron things out.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 9th house: Rahu in the 9th house hungry for the big picture. They want faith and philosophy, they are often travellers going to places that are sacred to them. These pilgrimages are likely to be unusual like their beliefs; but they will be passionate about their beliefs often holding them regardless of any proof in the contrary. They are often insincere Hippocrates who often assume the role of priest, professor or father figure without having the correct credentials. Rahu makes expedient use of religion in this position and will claim to follow whichever path will get them what they want or elevate their social standing. They often feel as though they are uniquely positioned to expound the higher truths despite their confusion on the topic. They can take on the external image of spirituality much easier than they can acquire the internal feeling of faith. Of course this kind of spiritual posturing can lead to a “holier than you” attitude. This can be a very political or ideological position as one seeks out the winning doctrine. The actual ideology doesn’t matter so much as the benefits that can be gained by professing that ideology.  There is likely to be something unusual about the father figure and it’s possible there will even be some confusion over who one’s real father really is. Guru’s and mentors will be unusual in some way: often false prophets or fake gurus.

Rahu in Magha 10th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 10th house makes “a person reputed, with limited children and busy with other peoples business. He does not do any good act and is fearless.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 10th house “native is devoid of happiness from father, devoid of wealth, destroyer of enemies, suffers windy diseases and gets injury from conveyance. The native will turn towards mean base deeds, addiction, intoxication, relations with several women to satisfy their lust. Profit from trade, much litigation, trouble in foreign countries, habit of stealing, lack of moral decency, and given to pride. Rahu in Pisces can be the cause of much pain and trouble. Auspicious influences can give bathing in holy rivers (Ganga), and lack of malefic influence may influence them to perform yagna. The native is exceptionally skilful, dexterous in trade or professional activities, uses any means to remove obstacles that come in his way and he does not pay heed to the sanctity or purity of means. For these reasons others take special care doing business with the native.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 10th house: “There is a tendency to lust after windows. He will be a skilled artist with a flare for poetry and literature. He travels widely and is learned. He will be famous and engage himself in business. He will have e limited issues. He will be bold and somewhat adventurous as he commits many sins.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 10th house “Spends on intoxicants. A wrong-doer; trouble from people; sleepless nights; vain; living in the company of aliens and foreigners; sex with young, beautiful and charming women; getting maximum pleasure. The native pays more money due to his own negligence; find more comfort and pleasure in the company of non-aryans; discontented with own relatives and father; love and sex with widows and wicked women. Gets help and support of the strong; trouble through father. He is bilious; clever but tense and can enjoy immovable property if this in Pisces. He is sensual extravagant, affluent, killer of the enemy, fickle, fond of poetry and drama, battle; migratory, successful in business. If this Rahu is exalted the native is a ruler. The native is a clever thief, characterless, quarrelsome, dishonest, chattering, miserable, inert, indifferent, unfortunate, living abroad, unsteady, vicious, He has few sons, is helpful and fearless and faces danger from conveyance. There is danger and trouble for parents and brother. The native is a governor; minister of chief of the army; brave, wise, wealthy. Honour and recognition from government if in Gemini or Virgo. Adverse in other signs. Bathing in the holy Ganges; if not afflicted this native performs Yahya. The native achieves name and fame; status through hard work and skill. Favourable in feminine signs; unfavourable in masculine signs. Afflicted Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, or Rahu in this house denotes sorrow through mother, father, brother or son. This house is responsible for son as its the 12th (family or self-undoing) from the 11th (gains) and 2nd (wealth and maraka) from the 9th (fate and fortune). Rahu in masculine sign denote links with widows, pride, talkative, separation. Success through service in police, railways, insurance, bank, etc. Untrustworthy, trouble fro parents, one other them dies when the native is a child. In feminine sign the early life is full of hardships; loss of patrimony; later life is blessed with wealth; offspring; name and honour. Large number of sons, success in lawsuits, skill in writing and publishing. The native is social, affectionate, philanthrope by nature. Does not tolerate hinderances. Danger to the mother in the 32 year; to father in the 7th; to patrimony in the 8th. Fortune in the 36 year, public honour and respect in the 42 year.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 10th house and Ketu in the 4th impels an individual  certainly to affect society in which he or she lives. These natives are able to concretise abstract ideals, channelling their inspiration to socially useful purposes. They enable society to experience new truths, new visions, new sensitivity, or even new or radically different patterns of living. Rahu in the 10th house produces much social interaction with substantial gains. These experiences vivify the psycho-mental capabilities of the person but may make him or her somewhat unstable. The achievements and frustrations which inevitably both arise during their social and professional interactions teach them a sense of detachment. At this stage the ego is ready for psychic transformation, leading from a sense of utter desolation to a level of being at which they begin to surrender themselves completely to the unknown universal spirit.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 10th house and Ketu in the 4th: “This placement subjects the native to various extremes in life. The first half is usually full of unpleasant or psychic experiences. The 4th ouse relates to childhood (3 – 14 years old) which makes this the most difficult period leaving some scars on the natives psychological make-up. Mishandling on the part of parents, peers or elders in this period results in psychological disorders which influence their later years. With a strong Ketu they come out of these experiences even stronger. They will have a keen insight into the subconscious and a piercing and penetrating intellect. A weak Ketu will cause them to succumb to outside influences. Psychic powers are heightened with a strong Ketu in 4th, but a strong personality is required to harness these powers for the benefit of all. The fourth house is directly related with the universal mother principle and the precedes of Ketu can connect the native to the wellspring of wisdom and the core forces off creation. Relationship with parents is not usually very smooth but there can be a strong connection with one of the grandparents. Although one may receive financial support from them there are always misunderstandings. A strong psychic contact with the mother is seen, but it might not be very pleasant because of the extreme involved. This combination experiences the generation gap to the fullest degree. The sooner the native is separated from their parents, the better it is for both. This is a wonderful placement for making ones mark on the world. It gives the ability to head large organisations or undertakings. Many agree that this is the best placement for Rahu. The closer this Rahu is to the midheaven the more power it has to help the native. They are especially favoured in the second half of life  with a strong sense of purpose and destiny. Ketu in the moksha house gives an innate understanding of the primeval forces which create and sustain the manifest universe. In younger souls it gives an emotional and hypersensitive disposition. One has to check the excessive emotionalism and take a more practical approach to achieving one’s goals. An analogy to keep in mind is that the “earth needs to be watered just enough to raise the crops; more water leads to flooding and less water to drought. Rahu is said to bring positive changes in life at age 19, 38 & 42. This combination often requires sacrificing private life for public life. The native should guard against neglecting the 4th house affairs or else there is very little inner peace and contentment even after all the fame and glory. 10th house Rahu gives leadership qualities which can be used for person aggrandisement or for the benefit of one’s circle of influence. The presence of Ketu in the 4th gives strong attachment and knowledge of ones roots but Rahu in 10th makes it in an all inclusive manner.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 10th house: This is the third upachaya house that Rahu is said to do well in. His fascination for leadership is very good at climbing the ladder while skipping a few steps in between. They tend to get positions of leadership without following the usual stepwise process. Of course they get in over their heads, but they also learn fast. There can be all kinds of disruptions in their career, but their ambition rarely falters. They will likely be seen as outcasts in their career and there are likely to be some stains upon their reputation. They could achieve the top spot for some time, but they usually fall before they are ready. They can also be the co-worker who seems to assume the role of the boss even if they really don’t have any legitimate claim to authority. But some people will also be known for their taboo or boundary breaking activity. What exactly they do can be hard to see through the smoke and mirrors, but they will fascinate people by their actions. Since social reputation is important to them, they seek to be seen and known and have little concern for home and comfort. They will easily take a job transfer for a better position. They may work irregular hours or face other irregularities in the office. These are the people who are also likely to abuse their position of power somehow, or perhaps they will merely sow confusion.   They can suffer from problems related to the skeletal system or the knees.

Rahu in Magha 11th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 11th house “grants the native prosperity, few children, longevity and ear ailments.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 11th house “native gains all kinds of things: happiness, honour from the king, clothes, gold, quadrupeds and victory. Wealth comes from trade relations with foreigners and this person will use any means to increase their profit. One may suffer diseases of the ear, difficulty with progeny, and elder brothers health is likely to suffer. Such a native is fond  of investing in shares, speculations, gambling, lottery and races.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in the 11th house: “The native distinguished himself in the army or navy, will become famous, wealthy and learned; will have few children, will suffer from ear affictions, and will earn much wealth in foreign countries.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 11th house “Gains wealth through aliens and non-aryans; lives arrogantly with attendants. Why should the go to a foreign land when he is not short of anything in his own? A friend of the knave and a grievous wrong-doer. Cheats others of their money. Blessed with sons. The native gains from people of an alien race. Keeps friendships with the wise. Blessed with sons. The native is not a man of status; an idler, in dept and quarrelsome. He is valiant, rich , learned, sensual, poetic. He is dark complexioned, handsome, sweet, living abroad, learned, unsteady, shameless. He gets honour and gain through government; wealth; ornaments; garments; cattle wealth; conveyance; success and victory be long living but with ear trouble. Theer will be trouble with family and sons but will be prosperous; healthy and stout with a fortunate partner. Success and gain through friends, but speculation, race, lottery, and games of chance do not pat. Trouble through business and industry and is under debt; and get honour and gets though state [sic] if this Rahu is in own or exalted sign. Favourable in feminine signs. Trouble through sons if in masculine signs. He is over ambitious, extravagant; accepts bribes and is caught; greedy; a cheat; illogical; loss through friends; and a series of misfortunes. First child is a daughter and long after a soon is born; many more daughters if in feminine signs. Faithful friends who are astrologers of experts in mantra. Success in both business and service. Death of elder brother becomes a burden. Sudden gain of wealth in the 42nd year. Sart of life at 28. Marriage at 27.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 11th house and Ketu in the 5th is very powerful. It enables the person concerned to acquire physical and social conveniences and power. The are often members of the social elite. An aura or righteousness and morality surrounds them. In materially inclined persons these impulses are favourable for the acquisition of wealth, social and political status, and opportunities for disseminating spiritual and occult knowledge. Opportunities like these come in profession and may upset their personalities, making them vain, egotistical, and self opinionated. If they maintain their psychological balance, however, they may explore undiscovered laws of nature, clearly describe latent motives of others, and extensively externalise their own inner powers.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 11th house and Ketu in the 5th: “The analogy of the phoenix rising from the ashes usually holds true for natives with this placement. As often the case when Ketu is in the first half of the chart, the early life of the native is not very pleasant. Breaks in formal education as they don’t like it and may only go through it out of a sense of social obligation. When Ketu I strong here, they will have a penetrating and piercing intellect as Ketu’s disposition for learning is usually internalised. I have noticed that they usually pursue some form of mysticism either in an accepted way or purely personal. If the ascendant lord conjuncts this Ketu the native will choose platonic love over other forms. There is some sort of frustrations and disappointment encountered with love in adolescent years that makes the native harbour and negative feeling towards love in general. Ketu in 5th is not auspicious for having and raising progeny unless the fifth house is exceptionally strong and Jupiter is aspecting. In charts of female it denoted difficult child birth. Rahu in the 11th is supposed to fulfil most of ones desires in this lifetime. This is not always true and when it does happen, it’s late in life, after ones 40s. This Rahu makes the native ambitious and there is a distinct frustration noticed when their aims are not achieved. 11th house affairs — goals, aspirations, elder brothers, sources of gain, philanthropy, idealism, friends, sharing, group relationships, realisation of objectives — get highlighted. Elder brothers, if they exist, are a source of gain and vice versa provided other influences allow for it. Rahu in the 11th is a great bestower of material gains, but this has to be supported by other combinations in the chart. It is the natives karma to understand and work out the opposites of 5th & 11th like self consciousness & group consciousness, acquisition or resources & sharing of resources, personal ambition & humanitarian perspective. Friendship is a keynote of the lives of these natives, and any unnecessary selfishness needs to be avoided as those who can help him might put out if they see him acting in a selfish manner. Natives with this placement acquire a fortune by devious means and squander it is quickly on undesirable expenditures.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 11th house: This is the 4th upachaya house that Rahu excels in. As the house of gain and profit, Rahu injects a strong dose of greed. The profit motive has become the great illusion for these people. This can be a very financially rewarding position for Rahu. Money money money everywhere and they don’t mind bending the rules to make it. They want more than anything to appear as a success, especially financially successful (Rahu in 2nd house has some similarities); they want to be seen as someone who has achieved their hopes and dreams in life. But is you ask them about their hopes and goals in life their answer will be unclear. They don’t really know what they want, or what they want is some strange unusual thing that can never be achieved. Rahu in Libra here might say they want world peace without having any plan to get it, but at some point they might just make the claim that they have achieved it. In any case, they will have the power to fascinate people with their hopes and dreams. The network is found in the 11th house. This gives Rahu a lot of strength here as his obsessive ways and technological acumen work very well with the massive source of network associates. These days in network interconnectivity it’s a very powerful place for Rahu. People will be fascinated by ones network of friends. They will be an unusual sort who feel entitled to challenge boundaries. They can be very good community organisers. Problems to the lower leg or irregularities in the nervous system or connective tissue can cause hurdles in a person’s life.

Rahu in Magha 12th house

Phala Deepika: Rahu in 12th house “makes a person always intent upon committing sinful deeds secretly, they spend a lot and suffer from ailments like dropsy etc.”

Jataka Bharnam: Rahu 12th house gives “disease of the eyes, problems with the feet (especially left eye and left foot), makes him a deceitful trickster, affectionate and loving, having affection for wicked people, and giving service to ordinary people.” “This is not auspicious for economic development and one spend much of ones time in unproductive activity. There is the possibility of difficulties in travels, and the natives wife may be afflicted with illness.”

B.V. Raman: Rahu in 12th house: “The native will be prosperous and immoral, but of helpful nature. He will have eye troubles.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Rahu in the 12th house “The native is miserable, sharp pain in ribs. However hard he may work he gets no success or gain; rather he suffers losses. Friend of the wicked and enemy of the good. At last he succeeds in his desires and ambitions. This native is very humble, suffers from acute bilious pain in the chest and heart. With best effort he cannot modify his early life, later he is more fruitful. This native is quarrelsome, idle, a debtor, cunning, immodest, rich. Benevolent, ailments the eyes, wound in feet, a slur on the family, wastes away his time and energy, can meet his demand if he stays in one place. There will be much travelling, separation from wife and family, ugly and shabby. He is dropsy, robbed by lowly tribals and repents after loosing temper. The native is inert, weak, hostile to relatives, a cheat, ill-spent money. This native is very handsome, prosperous, has few sons, vicious. Pain, trouble and punishment are indicated. If in Gemini, Sagittarius or Pisces, gain through social affairs, good for spiritualism, birth unnatural, salvation. Very favourable in own sign or exalted (Taurus, Gemini, Aquarius): Success in occultism, gain by secret methods and unexpected sources. If afflicted there will be loss of property. In masculine signs there will be affliction to the eyes, few offspring, two marriages, and dissatisfaction with ones own wife, leading to debauchery and long separations. In feminine signs one will be happy with their partner, two marriages, many good offspring, normal sight, early life is unsteady, journey to the north for a living, fortunate abroad, industrious, glorious, both income and expenditure are great. He is ambitious, generous, has lofty ideals and is fond of literature and social occasions. Interest in Vedanta drives him to asceticism. Loss of one of the parents by the 12th year; gain of patrimony by the 16th; a living established by 21 or 22; wealth and fortune by 35; if first marriage is early the second will come by 21, or later, between 32 to 36.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 12th house and Ketu in the 6th produces an unusual and powerful impact, providing much psychic power and enormous physical strength to carry out a special mission in life. Sometimes these individuals are found living in abnormal or trying living conditions, but they produce extraordinary results. These results may be highly propitious or socially undesirable; this depends on the disposition of Rahu in the particular chart. These individuals are great organisers and leaders of large numbers of people. Their leadership may be along bizarre, abnormal, or non-conventional lines. When their psychic faculties weaken, these people feel baffled. It is of utmost importance that they are guided properly so that they can take advantage of their opportunities to gain deeper understanding of the laws of nature using their powers for constructive purpose.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 12th house and Ketu in the 6th: “This placement oscillates between opposite more often than other placements. There can be a thin line separating insanity & genius; paranoia &  self discovery. This can be a difficult combination to handle and there is usually a sense of fatness to life. Rahu highlights 12th house things: receptivity, negation, seclusion, destiny, past lives, karma, escapism, excessive indulgence, luxury, losses, expenses, charity, foreign affairs, limitations, imprisonment, connectivity with subtle planes, fantasy, paranoia, subconscious mind, dreams, visions, sorrow, renunciation, liberation. The 12th house becomes the main field of activity in the natives life and even very evolved souls have difficulty balancing this combination. It can give a taste for all kinds of intoxications, smoking is common, There is a desire to completely immerse the ego in the sea of illusions resulting from excessive indulgence. Usually a strong ascendant is the key to minimising the negative effects of this placement. It can give the native a taste for the supernatural and allow him to look far beyond the material realm of existence. It can also give knowledge of the ocean of Maya in which the divine play of life in played. In my view, half the problem is solved if the native can keep away from all types of drugs and alcohol and they should remain equally wary of blindly following religious orders or other types of institutions. Such natives have a tendency to end up as doctors, nurses, healers, mediums, preachers, counsellors, lawyers, social workers, politicians, detectives, law enforcement. Rahu in the 12th also gives some foreign connection relates to the significations of its depositor or plants associated with it. Ketu in the 6th is supposed to be a powerful force giving worldly riches and power. There is better chance of this coming true is Jupiter is associated with Ketu in some way. These natives tend to expect too much from those working under them. They are not good at taking orders and do not do well in 9 – 5 jobs. Independent enterprise is better for their mental well being. These natives should avoid making too much of 6th house things like diseases, servants, enemies as there is a tendency to unnecessarily dwell on these topics. Most strange diseases and disorders can be found with this Ketu. They usually have no depth of enemies either by their own making or conferred by providence. How they deal with enemies differs based on other things in the chart, but diplomacy is not in the sphere of Ketu’s expertise. ^th house Ketu has very definite ideas about work ethics, purity and morality and there is a tendency to pass judgement and impose one’s ideas on others. Their strong will power helps them achieve their desires sooner or later; but they must guard against over extending their energy. Tehy need to strike a balance between 6th house and 12th house.”

Author’s General Commentary on Rahu in 12th house: As the house of loss Rahu is fairly happy here since everything he eats passes thru without satisfaction. This becomes the plight of this natives expenditure: lots of wastage and little satisfaction. At best, money will be spent on strange unusual things but still they will not get to enjoy them. It will be much the same as purchasing smoke, which is actually indicated by this Rahu: expenses on things that go up in smoke. Rahu’s sign and sign lord will, of course, have a lot of say in these matters. The 12th house is also the final moksha house and it’s the most well known house for liberation so these people may be fascinated by the freedom of liberation and are unlikely to be encumbered by stuff. They can just give things away and lose everything. They cannot get enough loss and they experience a lot of this; they will break the boundaries of proper expenditure. Much of it will go to outcasts or be spent on improper things. One of the nice things about Rahu in the 12th house is that those shadowy expenses mostly remain private; that whole Rahuvian shadow side remains hidden, not out of guilt that comes from the 8th house hidden, but because the things of the 12th house are essentially lost in the universal ocean. We also see a person’s inner quest for spirituality in the 12th house (the 9th house has more to do with our external expressions of spirituality). With Rahu here they are fascinated and hungry for the inner spiritual experience. As the 4th from the 9th it is the foundation for the external expressions of spirituality. They will build an unusual foundation for their beliefs, or perhaps merely a foreign foundation that can be unclear. But dreams, fantasies and imagination are also a part of the 12th house and these things don’t have to follow any protocol; the 12th house is already unreal so Rahu works pretty good here. This Rahu can be good for the imagination, dreaming big, really big, and having unusual or even taboo fantasies. It’s likely that others will not see these 12th house things in a person clearly so there may be some fascination generated in the public about their foreign travels or getaways. These kinds of things will certainly be unique. The most obvious thing about Rahu in the 12th house is travel: foreign travel or just getting away from it all. They can experience much solitude or isolation in life. And it’s likely they will seek advantage from qualities relation to foreignness, dreams, meditation. But further fascination could be there for hospitals, retreats, prisons, asylums, and the rest of these places (or people relating to the places) represented in the 12th house. The deformity on the body is most likely to occur on the foot.

Ketu in Magha 1st house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 1st house “makes a person always suffer from ingratitude, remain unhappy, and carry tales against others. He is an outcaste, fallen from his position, disabled, keeping company with the wicked.

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 1st house “native is a maker of cotton threads, sickly and diseased, distressed, troubled with fear, worried about his wife, agitated, perturbed, and suffering from windy diseases. Head aches and brain disease is possible, suffering caused by wicked people.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 1st house: “Psychic powers are likely. It denotes a weak constitution and an emaciated figure. Instability and deceitfulness may influence the character. Morbid imagination, strange appetites, tendency to excitability and wandering disposition became pronounced. Married life will be unhappy unless there are other favourable configurations.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 1st house: “Constant distress and anguish through relatives; fear and anxiety through the wicked. Trouble from wife and sons etc. Confusion, biliousness and rheumatism. He remains perturbed and his wife suffers from restlessness and stomach problem. The native is sad, inert, selfish, ugly, and foolish. Death of wife and trouble to the arm. He is seen as a liar, ungrateful, wicked, spiritless, dismissed from service, afraid of sex. Trouble for maternal uncle. He faces losses, scandals, danger to the face and eyes, and he has a short life. If in Capricorn or Aquarius the native is blessed with property and noble sons.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 7th house and Ketu in the 1st may produce restrictions in ones relationships. Psychologically the person can be self0-centred; socially, he is sometimes lonely. He expects the world to conform to his terms while he himself is reluctant to compromise. Such individuals may find partners in life, wether business , social life, or in marriage, not working in harmony with them. Enduring amiability or happiness are difficult to establish. Marital problems do not necessarily arise due to any lack of desire to achieve harmony and adjustment, but could be caused by illness, voluntary or involuntary separate living arrangements, divorce. Such experiences may lead the individual to extreme degrees of loneliness; he feels no one understands or appreciates him. These people have a tendency to relapse into seclusion, to keep away from others physically as well as in thought. When they begin to develop self-awareness, they then find themselves well prepared to undertake severe austerities and to assume a spiritual course in life.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 7th house and Ketu in the 1st: “The native is pronounced worldly wise even when they are functioning on an otherworldly plane. Rahu in the 7th takes good care on ones social standing between the years of 24-42 unless there are overriding negative indications. The spouse is usually more mature than the native and a rise of fortune takes place after marriage. If Rahu is working through his lower principle than the motive behind these relationships is questionable and balance is not maintained causing misunderstandings, break-ups and abuse at various levels. If the nodal axis is afflicted these natives will carry out the mindless sexuality we see in modern media. Balance in sexuality is absent allowing the darker side to take over. They often enjoy vocations dealing with people like counsellors, psychologists, management experts, project coordinators etc. They usually start something on their own as they would rather be boss of their own small private setup than work under someone in a bigger set up. Ketu in the ascendant usually adds some psychic dimension to the personality and gives a self effacing nature. An aspect from Jupiter will solve 90% of the problems that can arise from this placement. Natives are usually short in height and have an out of ordinary appearance if Ketu is close to the ascendant degrees. The ascendant lord needs to be well placed to keep these natives from being too under-confident in regards to appearance and personality. An exaggerated self-consciousness may be apparent. Ketu in the 1st is also supposed to give low appetite and peculiar tastes in foods. They can internalise energy and develop along spiritual lines. Spiritual transformation usually takes place in later years. The native has to be careful about depending on relationships to drive his or her sense of self.”

Ketu in Magha 2nd house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 2nd house “deprives the native of good education and riches. His language is foul and he has a sinister look. He depends on others for food.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 2nd house “brings loss of wealth, opposition against own men, disease of the mouth. Loss of wealth due to punishment of the king. Loss of grain due top theft and birds. The native get refuge with great difficulty in his time of need. If Ketu is in his own sign, or sign of a benefic friend, the native gets very much happiness.” According to BPHS Ketu is exalted in Taurus, moola trikona in Cancer, and ruler of Virgo. Phala Deepika say Ketu is strong in the later half of Taurus, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces.

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 2nd house: “Bad speaker. Loss through fraud and deception. There will be liability in financial affairs. Success in spiritualism, navigation, mystical arts, hospital etc. mat be expected.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 2nd house: “Perturbed about his wealth lest the government should take it away as penalty. Worried about food grains; if that support should be snatched away there will be strife and opposition with friends and family. Not a word of respect or hospitality escapes his mouth. If in Aries, Gemini or Virgo this Ketu is most favourable. The native is always mentally agitated, losses by government, hostility with relatives, ineffective speech in an assembly, harsh and critical speech. His supporters find themselves in trouble. If in Aries, Gemini, or Virgo, or influenced by benefics there will be much happiness and wealth. Loss of wealth, association with low people, wickedness, unhappiness and misfortune. Suffers from want of education, casts vile looks, is dependent, and has trouble with his mouth. If in own sign of associated with friendly planet they can be sweet and soft-spoken.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 8th house and Ketu in the 2nd attracts super-physical powers. Such individuals often display tremendous energy which they utilise to achieve extraordinary results. They make their mark on society. Under favourable planetary conditions they create a niche for themselves and may become greta scientists, exceptional police officers, politicians or doctors. If the individual is preoccupied with sense gratification, however, he or she may be drawn towards unapproved activities such as smuggling, drug trafficking or gambling. The results of Rahu in the8th are difficult to predict because the range of the unseen work which this house represents is very extensive. Whatever their achievements in life, this placement will lead to the sudden psychological transformation of these individuals.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 8th house and Ketu in the 2nd “Confers long life, but Ketu in the 2nd is not considered good for maintaining a smooth financial situation throughout life unless Ketu is in Sagittarius or Pisces; but even then they will have to suffer substantial loss at least once in life. It gives peculiarities in the way the native handles money: miserly with small spending but carefree with big purchases. Gambling can be a major downfall of this placement: this is the worst nodal placement for luck in speculation, while feeling the desire to gamble. Extreme cases can see the native gamble on almost everything in life; including their own life. A lot of natives who squander ancestral property are born with this placement. This Ketu gives a wandering nature and pleasurable travels. Many renown travellers have this nodal placement. Since the native is not inclined to follow orthodox religious rituals he should strive to develop some personal philosophy in life. Ketu in the 2nd causes bitterness in family life, which requires patience on the natives part. The native may end up under the control of their life partner at some point. This Ketu can adda sarcastic tone to the voice and the native can be a bitter critic and use foul language. Rahu in the 8th promises legacies and wealth from the partner. At the very least the native can be forced to learn humility by accepting resources from others. This Rahu favours 8th house professions: scientists, researchers, explorers, adventurers, insurance agents, bankers, spies, detectives, writers of mystery stories, occultists and all kinds of employment involving old things. If working through its lower principle this Rahu can make the native commit some bad deeds similar to those of Rahu in the 2nd house. It’s a very dangerous placement as the dark side of the 8th house is a very destructive force. There is a thin line between the balanced use and the excessive use of 8th house energies. The native can totally neglect 2nd house affairs or handle them in a very peculiar manner. The native needs to control their speech. It can be better to communicate in writing as their speech will often be misunderstood. Optimism also needs to be cultivated as these natives can be overly pessimistic.”

Commentary: Ketu in the 2nd house of Magha can give cataracts, if it’s influenced by Mars there is a good chance of surgery. They are likely to have what we consider nice eyes, something magical and mystical to them. Of course this is also the effect of cataracts; cloudy nebula. An absent look might be present, lots, dazed, not fully here. The face they show to the world, their style, their image are not important to them. They are not good with money and they will need a spouse or partner to take care of banking matters. They will have a bit of an odd ball collection of things, possibly special charms, Rahu in 8th house will give fascinating systematic secrecy.

Ketu in Magha 3rd house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 3rd house “promotes longevity, strength, wealth and fame. The native lives happy with his wife and enjoys good food. He loses a brother.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 3rd house “brings about the destruction of the natives enemies, disputes and quarrels, gains of wealth, a luxurious life, obtainment of grandeur, dignity and an increase in energy. They also see the destruction of their own men and pain in their arm. This Ketu generally give auspicious effects. Vigour and valour will rise up very quickly. But they will have a lot of worries. If this Ketu is exalted of in own sign the native get fear, agitation and happiness.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 3rd house “Strong and adventurous, but funky. Disturbs the mind with hallucinations.” During the dasha period of Ketu “enemies will be destroyed, becomes well-versed in music and dance. Generally the period will be a favourable one.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 3rd house: “The native kills his enemies. Useless and fruitless altercations and discussions. Gets prosperity and shows smartness, and has sexual affairs in great measure. Loss of friends; pain in the arms; anxiety and fear due to misunderstandings and needless worry. Affluent, sensual, sharp. If in own sign or exalted this Ketu grants much happiness, skilfulness, long life, fame, fortunate partner, tasty food. Fear and loss through friends; uneasiness and fear through the community and family and is adulterous with enemy women. This native is patient, brave, generous. Weak Ketu denies happiness. In Leo or Sagittarius there will be heart trouble, deafness, painful wound in the shoulder. If in Pisces he will be an expert spiritualist. Debilitated Ketu bring mental anxiety, trouble with brethren and neighbours and unprofitable journeys.” 

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 9th house and Ketu in the 3rd produces a psychological storm which may be religious in nature. These individuals become charged with ideas that could seem idealistic, unconventional, and provocative to others. Rahu makes the individual absorbs in his or her thoughts, perhaps with some sympathy for others, but often without external demonstration of it, That may appear as if some superior spirit has taken possession of their personality which, under malefic planetary influences, could make them ruthless in executing their nefarious programmes. In large numbers of people, this placement of the nodes creates attraction towards religion, holy places, tantric rituals, and austerities — all with the intention of securing greater personal advantages. There is a gulf between the secret aspirations of these individuals and their external activities, which may make them insecure, temperamental, peevish, or irritable. Coordination between the hidden ambitions and aspiration for psychic power and their actual deeds may be difficult to achieve. But this is the stage where, with some guidance and luck, they can obtain much spiritual merit. They are well prepared for psychological metamorphosis which could radically change the direction of their life course.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 9th house and Ketu in the 3rd: “These natives usually meet their destiny in a foreign land or through foreigners. The native usually believes in religious symbolism though not striating in the orthodox sense. The native is seen to concentrate on 9th house affairs: long journeys, philosophy, inner life, foreign influences, ethical disposition , higher mind, initiation and self realisation. It must not be misunderstood that the native will follow organised religion; he is more likely to develop a personal philosophy. Ketu in the 3rd house shows some sort of skill related to the 3rd house like writing, painting or other skills involving the hands, but Ketu usually requires some additional good conjunction or aspect to bring out these latent talents. Ketu is even more dangerous than Rahu for the live things related to 3rd house like younger siblings. An unhappy first half to life makes childhood a time not worth remembering. When poorly placed this Ketu is like a dog roaming the streets with much unnecessary and fruitless travels and wandering. Whether the native rises from their childhood scars asa saviour or a revengeful manic depends on the over all chart. Aspects from Jupiter of Ketu’s depositor can usually iron things out.”

Ketu in Magha 4th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 4th house “destroys land, vehicle, mother and happiness. He is made to leave his native place and is made to live in a foreign land at the mercy of others.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 4th house “gives loss of happiness from mother and friends, losses through the father and they have no brothers. If Ketu is in own or exalted sign they get happiness for a short time, but remains full of worries and anxiety. If this Ketu is afflicted by additional malefic the mother suffers greatly and one has disputes over land. They live in an atmosphere of quarrels and disputes.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 4th house “Will be deprived of mother, properties and happiness; lives in foreign place. There will be exceptional experiences at the end of life. There will be reversals and sudden changes.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 4th house: “Never gets and gain or favour from mother or friends. Loss of patrimony. Does not stay long in his house, and if he does stay, he suffers from nervousness. Benefits through brethren and relatives if in own sign (Pisces) or exalted (Sagittarius). He always criticises others; speaks ill of them and develops much unpleasantness and misunderstandings; quarrels with parents. He is dependent and suffers a loss of agricultural land, loss through father. He proves unfit for the assembly, experiences death of the mother; is valiant; truth-loving; soft and sweet and opulent. If in Scorpio or Leo he gets support from parents and friends. If debilitated there is loss of wealth, travelling, ailing mother, trouble from step-mother. If exalted there is Raja Yoga and gain of conveyance. Gain is sudden if in Sagittarius or Pisces, but it unlucky for immovable property and people will consider him contemptible due to his over-critical approach. He faced danger of poisoning, is thin and lean; bilious; indulges in ungainly controversy. Other effects are loss or confusion with land and property; inheritances; jeopardised family honour and credit; great disturbance in the lives of ancestors; much family strife and discord.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 10th house and Ketu in the 4th impels an individual  certainly to affect society in which he or she lives. These natives are able to concretise abstract ideals, channelling their inspiration to socially useful purposes. They enable society to experience new truths, new visions, new sensitivity, or even new or radically different patterns of living. Rahu in the 10th house produces much social interaction with substantial gains. These experiences vivify the psycho-mental capabilities of the person but may make him or her somewhat unstable. The achievements and frustrations which inevitably both arise during their social and professional interactions teach them a sense of detachment. At this stage the ego is ready for psychic transformation, leading from a sense of utter desolation to a level of being at which they begin to surrender themselves completely to the unknown universal spirit.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 10th house and Ketu in the 4th: “This placement subjects the native to various extremes in life. The first half is usually full of unpleasant or psychic experiences. The 4th ouse relates to childhood (3 – 14 years old) which makes this the most difficult period leaving some scars on the natives psychological make-up. Mishandling on the part of parents, peers or elders in this period results in psychological disorders which influence their later years. With a strong Ketu they come out of these experiences even stronger. They will have a keen insight into the subconscious and a piercing and penetrating intellect. A weak Ketu will cause them to succumb to outside influences. Psychic powers are heightened with a strong Ketu in 4th, but a strong personality is required to harness these powers for the benefit of all. The fourth house is directly related with the universal mother principle and the precedes of Ketu can connect the native to the wellspring of wisdom and the core forces off creation. Relationship with parents is not usually very smooth but there can be a strong connection with one of the grandparents. Although one may receive financial support from them there are always misunderstandings. A strong psychic contact with the mother is seen, but it might not be very pleasant because of the extreme involved. This combination experiences the generation gap to the fullest degree. The sooner the native is separated from their parents, the better it is for both. This is a wonderful placement for making ones mark on the world. It gives the ability to head large organisations or undertakings. Many agree that this is the best placement for Rahu. The closer this Rahu is to the midheaven the more power it has to help the native. They are especially favoured in the second half of life  with a strong sense of purpose and destiny. Ketu in the moksha house gives an innate understanding of the primeval forces which create and sustain the manifest universe. In younger souls it gives an emotional and hypersensitive disposition. One has to check the excessive emotionalism and take a more practical approach to achieving one’s goals. An analogy to keep in mind is that the “earth needs to be watered just enough to raise the crops; more water leads to flooding and less water to drought. Rahu is said to bring positive changes in life at age 19, 38 & 42. This combination often requires sacrificing private life for public life. The native should guard against neglecting the 4th house affairs or else there is very little inner peace and contentment even after all the fame and glory. 10th house Rahu gives leadership qualities which can be used for person aggrandisement or for the benefit of one’s circle of influence. The presence of Ketu in the 4th gives strong attachment and knowledge of ones roots but Rahu in 10th makes it in an all inclusive manner.”

Ketu in Magha 5th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 5th house “makes the person suffer the loss of children, stomach ailments, haunted by evil spirits. They are evil minded, wicked and sinful.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 5th house “causes wounds to the stomach, from windy disease or from falling, and surgical procedure may be necessary. The person is dear to siblings, has a righteous mind, few children and is wealthy strong, and vigorous. They make quick decisions, ideas flash in their mind. Favourably placed this Ketu can bring great luck, gain through shares or lottery.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 5th house “Loss of children and rouble in the stomach; strange and peculiar experiences in connection with the emotions and feelings. Later in life they will have an inclination towards spirituality.” Afflictions to this Ketu “gives criminal tendencies. The person lacks even a sense of shame when provoked and usually possesses a vindictive nature. The person lacks even the human touch between one or two of his children. If Venus joins this Ketu the may opt for platonic love. If afflicted by Mars, dangers are treated and the family will be extinguished.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 5th house: “Brothers face repeated danger from arms and from bile. Physical pain and suffering from own misunderstandings and wrong notions. Blessed with one or two sons. In spite of his great many vigour he remains in service. Great trouble from too little learning; strife with sons; injuries due to fall from high place. His offspring get affection from relatives but has disputes with brethren. The native is crafty, jealous, weak, timid, impatient, more daughters than sons, relatives are fortunate, stomach complaints, gain through fraud, harms brothers through mantra-tantra. Good fortune and much happiness if in Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius or Pisces. If strong, exalted or in own sign it gives Raj Yoga for head of a monastery; an impressive sermoniser, inclined towards pilgrimage and foreign travel. Fear and danger from water. Knowledge and learning are denied. Cattle wealth. Wicked and foolish. Absence of offspring, or their sudden and violent destruction. Meet with adversity and are disobedient. Harm through excess or irregular pleasure.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 11th house and Ketu in the 5th is very powerful. It enables the person concerned to acquire physical and social conveniences and power. The are often members of the social elite. An aura or righteousness and morality surrounds them. In materially inclined persons these impulses are favourable for the acquisition of wealth, social and political status, and opportunities for disseminating spiritual and occult knowledge. Opportunities like these come in profession and may upset their personalities, making them vain, egotistical, and self opinionated. If they maintain their psychological balance, however, they may explore undiscovered laws of nature, clearly describe latent motives of others, and extensively externalise their own inner powers.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 11th house and Ketu in the 5th: “The analogy of the phoenix rising from the ashes usually holds true for natives with this placement. As often the case when Ketu is in the first half of the chart, the early life of the native is not very pleasant. Breaks in formal education as they don’t like it and may only go through it out of a sense of social obligation. When Ketu I strong here, they will have a penetrating and piercing intellect as Ketu’s disposition for learning is usually internalised. I have noticed that they usually pursue some form of mysticism either in an accepted way or purely personal. If the ascendant lord conjuncts this Ketu the native will choose platonic love over other forms. There is some sort of frustrations and disappointment encountered with love in adolescent years that makes the native harbour and negative feeling towards love in general. Ketu in 5th is not auspicious for having and raising progeny unless the fifth house is exceptionally strong and Jupiter is aspecting. In charts of female it denoted difficult child birth. Rahu in the 11th is supposed to fulfil most of ones desires in this lifetime. This is not always true and when it does happen, it’s late in life, after ones 40s. This Rahu makes the native ambitious and there is a distinct frustration noticed when their aims are not achieved. 11th house affairs — goals, aspirations, elder brothers, sources of gain, philanthropy, idealism, friends, sharing, group relationships, realisation of objectives — get highlighted. Elder brothers, if they exist, are a source of gain and vice versa provided other influences allow for it. Rahu in the 11th is a great bestower of material gains, but this has to be supported by other combinations in the chart. It is the natives karma to understand and work out the opposites of 5th & 11th like self consciousness & group consciousness, acquisition or resources & sharing of resources, personal ambition & humanitarian perspective. Friendship is a keynote of the lives of these natives, and any unnecessary selfishness needs to be avoided as those who can help him might put out if they see him acting in a selfish manner. Natives with this placement acquire a fortune by devious means and squander it is quickly on undesirable expenditures.”

Ketu in Magha 6th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 6th house makes “a person very magnanimous, embodying the best of human qualities, firms and fame. He will possess high authority, destroy his enemies and fulfil his ambition.” “Danger from ulcer.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in the 6th houses “brings the destruction of a persons enemies, happiness from animals, gain of wealth, no disease of the body, but disrespect with relatives on mother’s side.” “Ketu in the 6th is very auspicious, due to which the native is dear and loved by brothers, is generous with good qualities, is famous and gets reputation and prestige due to learning and education.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 6th house “This is the best position for Ketu to occupy in the horoscope. The person will have fame and authority, He will be foe-less. Never-the-less his moral character will be loose. The position also confers intuitive and occult powers.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 6th house: “Discomfiture and disillusionment through the maternal uncle. Destruction of enemies. Cattle wealth, but pauper. Sound health; recovers quickly is there is any ailment. There is little gain, success and pleasure from maternal comfort of cattle wealth. He is free from sickness and worry and has wealth. He is successful in most debates and discussions. He is dear to relatives, large-hearted, skilled, reputed, and gets honour and fame through knowledge. He has financial gain and is firm, a high officer; enjoys expediency. There is trouble the teeth and lips. This native suffers from physical affliction. Unfaithful servants; loss through small animals; danger from insects, reptiles and other animals.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 12th house and Ketu in the 6th produces an unusual and powerful impact, providing much psychic power and enormous physical strength to carry out a special mission in life. Sometimes these individuals are found living in abnormal or trying living conditions, but they produce extraordinary results. These results may be highly propitious or socially undesirable; this depends on the disposition of Rahu in the particular chart. These individuals are great organisers and leaders of large numbers of people. Their leadership may be along bizarre, abnormal, or non-conventional lines. When their psychic faculties weaken, these people feel baffled. It is of utmost importance that they are guided properly so that they can take advantage of their opportunities to gain deeper understanding of the laws of nature using their powers for constructive purpose.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 12th house and Ketu in the 6th: “This placement oscillates between opposite more often than other placements. There can be a thin line separating insanity & genius; paranoia &  self discovery. This can be a difficult combination to handle and there is usually a sense of fatness to life. Rahu highlights 12th house things: receptivity, negation, seclusion, destiny, past lives, karma, escapism, excessive indulgence, luxury, losses, expenses, charity, foreign affairs, limitations, imprisonment, connectivity with subtle planes, fantasy, paranoia, subconscious mind, dreams, visions, sorrow, renunciation, liberation. The 12th house becomes the main field of activity in the natives life and even very evolved souls have difficulty balancing this combination. It can give a taste for all kinds of intoxications, smoking is common, There is a desire to completely immerse the ego in the sea of illusions resulting from excessive indulgence. Usually a strong ascendant is the key to minimising the negative effects of this placement. It can give the native a taste for the supernatural and allow him to look far beyond the material realm of existence. It can also give knowledge of the ocean of Maya in which the divine play of life in played. In my view, half the problem is solved if the native can keep away from all types of drugs and alcohol and they should remain equally wary of blindly following religious orders or other types of institutions. Such natives have a tendency to end up as doctors, nurses, healers, mediums, preachers, counsellors, lawyers, social workers, politicians, detectives, law enforcement. Rahu in the 12th also gives some foreign connection relates to the significations of its depositor or plants associated with it. Ketu in the 6th is supposed to be a powerful force giving worldly riches and power. There is better chance of this coming true is Jupiter is associated with Ketu in some way. These natives tend to expect too much from those working under them. They are not good at taking orders and do not do well in 9 – 5 jobs. Independent enterprise is better for their mental well being. These natives should avoid making too much of 6th house things like diseases, servants, enemies as there is a tendency to unnecessarily dwell on these topics. Most strange diseases and disorders can be found with this Ketu. They usually have no depth of enemies either by their own making or conferred by providence. How they deal with enemies differs based on other things in the chart, but diplomacy is not in the sphere of Ketu’s expertise. 6th house Ketu has very definite ideas about work ethics, purity and morality and there is a tendency to pass judgement and impose one’s ideas on others. Their strong will power helps them achieve their desires sooner or later; but they must guard against over extending their energy. They need to strike a balance between 6th house and 12th house.”

Ketu in Magha 7th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 7th house “causes a person to be disrespected, live in the company of wicked women, suffer from disease of the bowels, loose wife and vital power.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 7th house “gives fear during travel, and enemies destroy ones wealth. If in Scorpio, conditions are always profitable but wife gets troubled, worries, anxiety, and expenditures are ever increasing. Wife suffers headaches and sudden physical troubles. This Ketu is not considered auspicious; travel in Ketu periods tend to be fruitless and expensive.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in 7th house: “The native will have an unhappy marriage with a shrewish wife. He is passionate, sinful and lusts after windows. His wife is sickly. The native suffers from cancer of the abdomen (or uterus is if a woman). He will suffer humiliation and loss of virility.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 7th house: “has much trouble and danger form travel, but he returns safely. Loss of wealth and fear of drowning. Trouble from partner and sons. Extravagant; nervous. If in Scorpio there will be gain of wealth, and income will be stable. Increased expenditure and happiness from wealth. There is want of happiness from partner. She may be wicked. The native himself is immodest, sleeps long, has humble speech, undertakes a lot of travels. Journeys are postponed, wealth is lost, and there is fear of enemies and thieves. He is adulterous and deserted by partner. Ailments of the intestines; seminal troubles and wrath of the ruler.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 1st house and Ketu in the 7th intensifies the material urges of the individual. It drives one to seek prosperity, personal prowess, greater work skills, higher social status, and to leave ones mark on society. Yet these individuals fair to satisfy their thirst completely. This leads to disenchantment with the people or groups with whom they come in contact. Self-conceit greatly vitiates their interpersonal relationships and these individuals may experience great anguish and phycological frustration at many levels. They may begin to analyse the working of their inner mind. The psychological changes arising out of situation makes them more introverted. As their frustration is transmuted these persons gradually begin to immerse themselves in humanitarian activities and become useful members of society and helpful and understanding workers.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 1st house and Ketu in the 7th “fortunate in that it allows the native to successfully project their personality to the outside world. Rahu is said to do well in the 1st, 9th & 10th houses. If Rahu is placed very close to the ascendant degree, then it gives an out of ordinary physical appearance and personality. The person is usually on the taller side and has a peculiar sort of wordiness attached to their manners, which of course is not very pleasing to others. A heightened sense of self, which can often turn into ta false sense of pride or vanity, is noticed; which can drive them to act mindlessly on many occasions.If Rahu is working through his higher principle, this position provides keen insight and capacity for constant introspection. This is why this combination produces so many philosophers and saints. These men having the true understanding of the working of the cosmic forces don’t like to be addressed by titles. Rahu here can also provide deep insights into mass psychology and future trends. they can be found working in any field, but we do find that many scientists, inventors, explorers, adventures have this placement. They like to have independence in whatever they are doing. Rahu in the first provides good physical stamina and vitality that might be over-extended in exploration in extreme conditions, adventure sports. They often feel lonely. Their sense of individuality does not depend on social intercourse and they have capacity to be alone for long periods of time. Ketu in 7th hinders the formation of any lasting relationship. Unless there are powerful forces over-riding this, life-long bachelors is the norm with this placement. Relationships only stand a chance if their partner gives them lots of room to be themselves and follow their own path. They can be sweet and humble in their social conduct unless afflicted. They always stand by the way they think and feel and are very frank and outspoken about it. This habit does not help them win many friends except those with enough understanding to gage their real intent. Public speaking comes naturally to these people even is they seem shy off-stage. The native has to learn to take the spotlight off one’s own self in order to understand and accommodate others. They are caught up in the dilemma of why should one scatter one’s energies outside when the whole universe exists within the self. This often causes them to completely exclude the world outside. More evolved souls do not make this mistake because they understand self-realisation has no meaning unless it is shared with and includes the world outside as well.”

Ketu in Magha 8th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 8th house “native will be short lived, remain separated from his dear friends and engage in feuds, be injured by a weapon and meet with disappointments in all efforts.” “Danger from ulcer.” “Unnatural death like suicide or association as a result of the hatred of enemies, or through worms.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 8th house person. “If in Cancer, Virgo, Gemini, the native has disease of the anus but gains wealth from conveyances. If in Aries, Taurus, or Scorpio they will see exceptional gains of wealth. If associated with any other malefic they will suffer piles or fistula, money lent out is not returned, and despite their love and affection for animals will be bitten or injured by them”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in 8th house: “If aspected by a benefic the native will enjoy a long life and much wealth. If afflicted, the native covets the wealth and women of others. He will suffer diseases to the excretory system and illness due to a life of profligacy and excess.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 8th house: “Suffers from piles and fistula etc. Fear and danger from fall from horseback. Difficulty from advances given as loans. Gain of wealth if in Aries, Gemini, Virgo or Scorpio. The native is brilliant in games, in job, by character and happiness. The native suffers from secret disease of the face and teeth. He is brave and industrious, but short-lived. There is separation from friends, strife, arm wounds, much opposition, danger from conveyance. If in Gemini, Cancer or Virgo: gain though conveyance. If in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Virgo or Scorpio: trouble from piles, fistula; fear of loss of cattle; hinderance of the return of loans, financial gain through government. He has his eyes on the wealth and women of others and is ailing, vicious and greedy. If aspected by a benefic he is long-living and wealthy. If in Taurus he gets wealth and son.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 2nd house and Ketu in the 8th may give the individual a sense of mission, a feeling that he or she is functioning as an agent for some higher power. In extreme cases this can lead to megalomania. More often it makes one so opinionated that it may be difficult for them to establish a positive rapport with others. These persons have unrealistic expectations of others and want to change them to suit their own specifications. They may not feel content with their achievements, and become obsessed with securing even more. The promise of acquiring greater physical or spiritual merit often brings radical changes in their thinking. They may grow interested in occult sciences as they become increasingly aware of the immense psychophysical possibilities inherent in the process of expending their consciousness.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 2nd house and Ketu in the 8th: “Considered a good placement for the wise management of resources, material and spiritual, available at ones command unless there is affliction. If afflicted the native is sure to go through a period of deprivation followed by a period of plenty. It’s good for material well being but the desires never end. There is an intensity about getting exactly what they want. Satisfaction or the lack of it became a keynote for these natives. Usually gives an attractive personality, especially to female natives if there are favourable supports. It usually imparts an unorthodox beauty and captivating quality to the natives face which seems to mature early. Although this position of the nodes supports a wide variety of professions it has a tendency to favour mathematicians, linguists, astrologers, economists, financiers, bankers, explorers, researchers, singers, and musicians. It favours a capitalist mindset unless aspected by Saturn. If badly afflicted the native can loose his sense of proportion and earn through trickery, deceit, bribery, blackmail or theft. It’s likely many drug dealers have this placement. Money made is usually spent quickly on indulgences: smoking, alcohol, meat. Jupiter aspect can redeem a person. A lot of present day evils arise from this combination, but in its higher aspect it gives a love for truth and a charitable disposition. Ketu in the 8th house is good for carrying out research in any chosen field. If working through its higher aspect the native will not fear death as they understand its power to renew. If well placed and materially inclined it can bring legacies and resources of others later in life; but if it’s weak it will only give expectation and no fulfilment. Affliction can give sexually transmitted disease. There is need to maintain calm in the worldly game of gain and loss. If the native gets carried away in either of these they will find life to be unforgiving. They need to seek balance between the earthy second house and the emotional 8th house.”

Ketu in Magha 9th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 9th house “makes a person take a sinful course, commit unrighteous acts, and be deprived of father. They are unfortunate, poverty stricken and speak ill of good people.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 9th house “releases the person from their troubles, gives happiness from son, rise of fortune through foreigners, distress or diseases of the arm. Blessings from doing penance, religious activities and giving alms.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in 9th house: “The native will be short tempered and get upset over triffles. He will be eloquent but will use this talent to scandalise others. Fond of pomp and show, haughty and arrogant, he will, however, be valourous. Often treating his parents badly and generally hostile towards them he will be short sighted but save much money through frugal living. He will have a good wife and children.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 9th house: “He is desirous of sons. Favour and fortune through aliens. Trouble and loss through brothers and pain in the arms. People laugh at his penance and donations. The native feels the absence of sons, He generosity is considered a boast. He is short tempered, eloquent, convert, critical, brave, jealous of father, vain, spiritless, arrogant and unfortunate. The native is blessed with wealth and sons; gain through aliens and success over troubles. His brothers are in difficulty and has much pain and suffering in both arms. Mocked for his religious fervour and activities as they are not in accord with scripture. Trouble for the father since childhood. Luck is not favouring. No desire for pilgrimage. The native overcomes anguish and harbours a burning desire for sons. He is valiant, well-armed, absence of friends, wealth; piety and modesty and is worried about relatives and sons and poverty. This Ketu keeps him free from many troubles and calamities. It blesses him with sons; fortune through foreigners; satisfaction through asceticism and benevolence. He may be a king or a minister; has fame; glory, wisdom, generosity, kindness and devotion. This Ketu shakes his faith; voyages bring misery and misfortune; strange dreams, and doles out punishment in foreign lands.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 3rd house and Ketu in the 9th gives many responsibilities along with a tendency towards reclusiveness. These individuals come out of their isolation when their assistance is sought and they are thrust into leadership roles. The leadership may be philanthropic activities, dissemination of the wisdom of the past and sacred scriptures, or in the realm of political organisation and philosophy. They may impart guidance in psychological exploration or industrial organisation. They suffer when they have to follow routine duties; otherwise they do not reject hard work, penance, and contemplation. Gradually they realise that public and charitable work is the best goal in life and they embrace the principle of right action: selfless activity with no expectation of reward.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 3rd house and Ketu in the 9th: “This is considered an auspicious placement for the nodes. Rahu provides material success while Ketu takes care of inner life. Rahu provides courage but also misunderstandings with younger siblings. As is the case with natural malefics the live things of the house suffer (younger siblings and companions), while the non-living things prosper: mental and physical energy, passions, prowess, leadership ability, oratory, scientific rational thinking, writing ability, etc. In some cases strong assistance from younger siblings helps one get ahead in life (or vice versa). Short journeys bring luck, though they can sometimes be unpleasant. Longer journeys to distant countries do not turn out to be suited for the native unless Ketu is strong in a friendly sign and conjunct the yoga karaka planet or exalted planet. A peculiar thing of this placement is that the native can hold a gun or a pen with equal ease; which they choose depends on other things in the chart. Writers, orators, painters, sculptors, instrumentalists, soldiers, athletes (especially those requiring skill and strength of arms), generals, revolutionaries, political and spiritual leaders are likely to have this combination. The physical and metal abilities provided by this Rahu can be uses in positive way if other placements in the chart provide an integrated personality. I have found that, due to the 3rd house emphasis, this placement to produce a number of atheists who swear by science and scientific thought. Late in life that can swing to the other pole and denounce everything material. They have to strike a balance between physics and religion; aggression and compassion, the drive and the path, mater and spirit. If an evolved should is capable of striking this balance they will realise the beauty, dexterity, gentleness, and genius of this placement. The first half of life is usually more fruitful than the second half: if the native achieves fame and fortune in his youth, this will be lost in his 40s. Age 47 begins a new episode in their life: for those who have had a relatively uneventful life until this point they now, after 47, find an opportunity to make their mark on the world. Ketu should be quite strong for this to happen. After age 47 Ketu tries to bring the 9th house to light. For those who have lived a material existence up to this point will find it a miserable experience; especially if they are not willing to change the course of their life.”

Ketu in Magha 10th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 10th house “makes a person have to overcome great obstacles in order to do any good act, or he may himself be responsible for the obstacles. He is impure and engages in evil deeds. He is energetic, wise and reputed.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 10th house “native is devoid of happiness from father, destroys enemies despite being unfortunate oneself. Conveyances get wear and tear and one suffers from windy diseases. Trouble from horse back riding. Ketu in Virgo 10th house makes a person happy and wealthy. Aries, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio is good for gains.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in the 10th house: “The native will be strong, bold and well known. He will commit vile deeds, be impure in his resolve, and face many obstacles in his undertakings. He will be very clever. If beneficially disposed the native will be happy, religious, well-read in scripture and visit many pilgrimage places and sacred rivers.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 10th house: “He is unfortunate and miserable. Trouble through father. Danger of falling from a horse or some other form of transport. His enemies are destroyed if in Gemini, Leo, Capricorn or Aquarius; the native will be intelligent, strong, a craftsman, self-realised, social, phlegmatic, bravest of the brave, challenging and much travelled. Trouble for the father and the native is ugly and unfortunate. Danger for horse, elephant, cow or bull etc. If in Pisces or Sagittarius [or is it Pisces or Sagittarius ascendant] he get the greatest honour and recognition, wise, an authority of scripture, living in foreign land, many victories. In Aquarius, Virgo, Gemini or Taurus [or these ascendants] he is amiable and get ordinary results. The imposition is not favoured for business, but the native get fortune in a foreign land if it’s in a movable sign. Disease of the rectum, lowly habits and deed; adulterous. He gets no gain or support from parents. If in Virgo he gets a though injury from conveyance. He is fond of playing Veena and like black objects but opposes all good activities. He is impressive, reputed, and gallant, but troubled through thieves. There is loss of reputation through fraud, treachery, an unfavourable public and market conditions, failures, changes and depressions.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 4th house and Ketu in the 10th may bring emotional suffering and the frustration of desire. These natives often enjoy many physical comforts and opportunities for sense gratification, but first they may pass through heart wrenching situations of utter hopelessness. Their despair may not appear on their faces; indeed, others may accuse them of insensitivity or of exaggerating their troubles. These emotional setbacks may seriously affect their relationships. Those with extremely weak egos may suffer from schizophrenia; those with exaggerated egos may become ruthless and pursue their objectives without consideration for others. When they begin to deal with their inner issues constructively, they prepare themselves to meet any situation without giving undue importance to their person conveniences, dislikes, or troubles. They begin to realise that life is not for idleness but for working simply for the works sake, without wasting time or licking one’s wounds.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 4th house and Ketu in the 10th: “Everything is fine as long as the native is not ambitious about career. Contentment is the key word of this placement, A strong attachment to mother or mother figures in seen; similar to Rahu conjunct Moon. Some help from the mother or the mother’s side helps one get ahead in life. The father figure is usually absent from a young age or ignored. They no not like vocations that involve a lot of travelling. They prefer to have a permanent home in a particular village, town or city where they spend the majority of their life. They usually prefer smaller towns to bigger cities. 4th house vocations like property dealers, agriculturists, dairy farmers, transporters, professional drivers, child psychologists, children story writers, interior decorators, architects, construction engineers, etc. are favoured by this placement. At least a couple changes of profession are common. Ketu in the 10th hinders job satisfaction. It becomes the natives duty to insulate the emotional aspects of life rather than the practical aspects. A sudden fall is imminent if the native gets over ambitious in career or reputation. Any attempt to suppress the active subconscious can make their lives dull and sad.”

Ketu in Magha 11th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 11th house “makes a person hoard money, possess many noble qualities, enjoy himself well, and gives every opportunity to collect good materials and be successful in achieving all desires.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 11th house makes the “native sweet spoken and excitable, they get good education, has charming appearance, is voluptuous, vigorous, valorous, wears beautiful clothes, but suffers disease of the anus and unhappiness from children. In own sign aspected by benefits this Ketu can give quick gain, much wealth and give success in all objectives.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in 11th house: “The native will have a habit of hoarding. He may get monetary windfall through speculation, lottery, horse racing or stock exchange. Noble and possessed of many good qualities of head and heart, he will succeed in all his ventures and will participate in charitable causes and events.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 11th house: “The native gets success and gain from all sources. Very fortunate and learned, handsome, strongly built, well-dressed and very glorious. His offspring are unfortunate and suffer from fear and danger. The native is reputed, charming, happy-go-lucky, has house and property, affluent, generous, skilled in aesthetics and archery; sweet, pleasant, humorous, learned, prosperous, imposing, fortunate with jewellery, dress, and ornaments; suffers from ailments of the rectum and tension. He is generous, kind, popular, fond of literature, contented and respected by the king. If this Ketu is in Aries, Taurus, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces, or is aspected by Jupiter or Venus the native is especially benefitted. There is success and gain in business. He is a poet, a writer, gets state honour, wealth flourishes. He was success and quick gain everywhere and spends it on noble cause. He is unfortunate in respect to progeny. Denotes undesirable associations, opportunities are missed, hopes remain unfulfilled; he is misguided by unfaithful friends.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 5th house and Ketu in the 11th activates the persons creativity in a paradoxical manner, restricting material creativity in order to impels the creative forces to higher levels from which beneficence of different kinds can be radiated. These individuals may experience difficulty in having offspring of their own, but on a mental plane they are very active. The keep themselves extremely busy. Material creativity might suffer, as may sociability, and there can be anxiety about financial security. Despondency  due to such experiences makes them seek compensation on the mental plane where they attain some degree of satisfaction. Ultimately they may become both impersonal and quite successful in relationships. They attain significant social status and may make a great deal of money. They eventually realise that their happiness and peace of mind do not depend on specific work involvements but on a trust in the law of karma. Even in small everyday activities their actions are now guided by an attitude of helpfulness.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 5th house and Ketu in the 11th: “This combination can produce the best and the worse type of human being. The 5th and 11th deal directly with ones mental make-up and interaction with others. They have abundant mental energy which can be used for good or evil. Rahu in the 5th provides this mental energy along with highlighting 5th house affairs — intellect, creativity, self-consciousness, past life merits and demerits, children, love of the self and others, acting, confidence, education, publications, mantra, the chosen deity, etc. This is also the house governing mass media and cinema. This is the reason why most actors and other people associated with movie and stage productions have this combination. In my view, photography originates from this placement. In many charts of photographers I have come across this nodal placement in 90% of them. Under malefic influence Rahu in 5th can produce megalomania and even dictators if Sun & Mars are involved — dictators of nations as well as the self styled dictators of home and workplace. It can also produce crooks and swindlers, thieves, thugs if Mercury is afflicted or involved in this combination. It is thus a very sensitive place for Rahu where one need to channel their creative and intellectual energies for the benefit of the group or the sphere of ones influence. In other words, this energy needs to be channelled through he 11th house. There is usually a break in formal education making vocational training preferable to classical education. When working in it’s higher principle, 11th house Ketu allows channelling to happen with ease. When afflicted it can block the 11th house so that one does not have many friends nor are they involved in any social or humanitarian projects resulting in a self-centred life. The self-conscious has to become a part of the group consciousness, and form a part of the collective human consciousness, before finally merging with the greater universal consciousness. 5th house is fire, the 11th house is air; air has no warmth without fire and fire cannot burn without air. The fire produced in 5th house should be dissapated in tot the 11th house so it reaches those who require it. This is the challenge for these natives. Ketu in the 11th house produces misunderstanding with the elder brother and is not considered favourable. Some anxiety on the part of children, their birth and development is also seen. If having children the native usually makes for a concerned parent.”

Ketu in Magha 12th house

Phala Deepika: Ketu in 12th house native “commits sinful deeds secretly and squanders away his wealth on vile things. He destroys his wealth and is of questionable conduct suffering from ailments of the eyes.”

Jataka Bharnam: Ketu in 12th house “gives trouble to feet and eyes, heavy expenses, destruction of enemies, lacks desire for happiness, and suffers disease to the anus and loins. The native might not have wealth but will spend money lavishly.”

B.V. Raman: Ketu in 12th house: “The native will have a restless and wandering mind and will leave his country of birth. The lower classes will befriend him. All inherited property will be lost.”

Chamatkar Chintamani: Ketu in the 12th house: “Bestows princely glory and prosperity. Spends his wealth for the social good. Enemies are defeated on the battle field. Pain and suffering anger the navel, private parts, feet and eyes. No gain through maternal uncle. He wastes his wealth on misdeeds. He is laggard in war, vicious, restless, generous, extravagant, in-depth. If it conjoins Mercury: success and gain in business; affluent like a king; a poet learned in sastra. If exalted, in own sign or with Jupiter the naive is a very skilled, gentle aesthetic. If strong with Venus he worships Durga, the power goddess. If with Venus or Moon he is adulterous and vicious. The native is eloquent in debate, has beautiful eyes, education, and he destroys his enemies. He gets no help from maternal uncle. Suffers from ailments of the private parts, rectum, feet, eyes, and remains mentally upset. There is loss of old property, unsteadiness, immodesty and imprisonment.”

Bepin Behari: “Rahu in the 6th house and Ketu in the 12th makes these people intensely concentrated on material pursuits. Often their dreams, psychic experiences and spiritual contacts affect them at deeper levels, producing radical transformations in their mental attitude. They feel unhappy about social differences and may face illness, litigations, and personal accusations but they confront them with courage and confidence, and the final outcome works in their favour. The experience gained in these confrontations gives them inner confidence. Their dream experiences, increased sensitivity, and psychic visions initiate them in the knowledge of supra physical realms. The perception of higher realities now becomes more meaningful to them then the enjoyment of physical comforts and social acclaim. They gradually establish greater control over their psycho-physical functions.”

Prash Trivedi: Rahu in the 6th house and Ketu in the 12th: “Rahu is said to function well in the upachaya houses and Ketu has a natural affinity for the 12th house. This is generally true, but when it comes to giving hard times this is the toughest placement. Rahu in the 6th highlights 6th house things like work, service, health, enmity, distillation and discrimination, dietary and personal habits, accidents, diseases, discipline and austerity, opposition, litigation, power, helpers, medicine, healing. Natives with this placement have come to terms with all of this negative energy to some extent. 6th house represents adolescent years so from this early period these natives show an immaculate sense of method and order in their lives (provided there are supporting factors). If this Rahu is afflicted they can indulge in mindless behaviour that harms themselves and others which they come to later regret. This is a good combination for physicians, healers, therapeutic vocations. The native usually deals with foreigners and benefits from them in some way: foreign service, tourism, import-export, shipping, etc. They have capacity for heard work, and a dint of fearlessness is noticed. Ketu in the 12th usually gives some psychic experience either through dream or visions [or related to the functions of planets in conjunction]. This is a good position for spiritual pursuits, but Ketu has to be acting through his higher principle. The native usually has some understanding of the divine forces in a very personal way. This position of Ketu usually brings about some unpleasant experiences: imprisonment, isolation, accidents, but this is often a good thing as they are paying off karmas from their past. Isolation is very important for these natives as it can bring out latent abilities. After this realisation follows the hard work indicated by Rahu in 6th. A peculiar trait of this Rahu is that no matter how are they try to avoid enmity, it seems to follow them; this makes forgiveness one of the most important qualities the native can develop. This combination is also beneficial in modern day politics where dealing with enemies and behind the scenes manoeuvres comes naturally to the native. These native usually prevail over their enemies, but enemies can also bring their downfall, and even their death. This position of the nodes usually give a strong constitution but other planets involved can cause serious disease or difficult to diagnose disorders. Sudden unexpected death can also happen if there are other contributing factors. Worldly recognition or success comes only after a long struggle, these natives are very career conscious. They can be headstrong and there is danger of misuse of power, but Ketu in 12th will bring their downfall to teach them the lesson. The native has to guard against rigidity which comes from too much order and discipline in life. They also have to guard against loosing themselves in extreme indulgence from having a complete lack of discipline. Financially the native is neither a miser nor a spendthrift, but they often take up either extreme asceticism or extreme indulgence as a means of attaining liberation . Some few take up the middle path once wisdom dawns on them.”
