Rahu = Taurus = herds, hoards, stories, storage, wealth

  • uttama- Rashi

In Rahu's uttamamsha of Vrishabha, the chalakaraka is motivated by a great Ambition to Acquire a Treasury.

Quest for Treasure = artha.

Rahu-Vrizabha is fascinated by esoteric"preserver-collector" roles.

Rahu seduces Rahu-Vrizabha into pretentiously enriched relationships.


Snake-like Naga gets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of the Treasure Chest.

When quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, the Naga King then *may* get ejected due to loss of camouflage, as those with legitimately acquired wealth reject one with pretentiously acquired wealth. However uttama-Rahu usually succeeds materially.


Great leap forward into lineage treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge Privilege

Often signifies great hoards of gathered wealth: Rahu = uttama in Zukra's rashi of Vrishabha the Accumulator.

  • Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie = in 1902, possessed the most financial wealth of any man in the world

Find Professor Zukra and know His effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify Zukra's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Vrishabha.


Literary and Political Bravado

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 J.R.R. Tolkien = uttama-Rahu-12 casting drishti upon Shani-4 world culture (dharmesha-9 ) and structured foundations + Zukra-Makara-8 literary genius (L-5) . Tolkien's first books were adjudged as being too exotic for modern readers due to their "eye-splitting" Celtic place-names (dhanapati-2 Chandra names yuti Guru expansion). Thus his ambitious but risky output was initially refused by literary editors during period of Mangala rogesha-6 no contract, but embraced as brilliantly exotic during subsequent period of Rahu.

  • Tolkien won them over via his own ambitious certainty in the power of the fantasy world. First he demonstrated Surya-7"show" that the unfamiliar names were not Celtic anyway, but rather more Germanic in linguistic form.

  • They were still quite reluctant (randhresha-8 fear of unknown) but he overwhelmed them with certainty infused by his spiritual guides (12) - and a magnificent new expression of the literary genre of other-worlds "fantasy fiction" 12 was born.

Balance and design entitlement

  • Rahu magnifies sensual and self-indulgent behaviors,

  • gives desire to have pleasures of the physical senses, love of nature, craving for beautiful people and things.

  • Can become extremely focused on the pursuit of financial well-being , fine food and drink.

  • gifted in speech-making and song

In Vrishabha, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Zukra-like sensual characteristics. One will have a great taste for financial wealth, and in general one banks plenty of natural resources during the incarnation. A natural capitalist.

Vimshottari periods of uttama-Rahu can, if Rahu's ruler and co-tenants are strong, bring fabulous wealth when Rahu occupies 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, or 11.

  • Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling * Guru-yuti-Rahu * began a period of extraordinary rise in literary fortunes at the onset of Rahu Mahadasha. She eventually was ranked as the financially wealthiest woman in Britain, and ranking high among wealthiest women of the world.

  • Important Jyotisha considerations for the astounding literary and cinematic success of Ms. Rowling 's writings include (but not limited to): joint drishti cast by Rahu-Guru-5 upon 9-11-1. Ruler of Rahu-Guru is Zukra-yuti-Budha-8 occult knowledge. She evoked the ancient magical culture of Druidic Britain via Budha dharmesha-9 , set the tale in a school (Mangala-in-9 = L-4) and as a mother she crafted child-characters that were lovingly home-grown (Chandra-9).


Rahu's style usually involves sneaking into forbidden places under culturally false pretenses.

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King uttama-Rahu + Kuja-Vrishabha-2. The scion of slaves, he acquired a Ph.D. in theology from a top-ranked university which is normally the exclusive province of the cultural-knowledge elite.Rev. King then used these powerful credentials to speak truth to power. Rahu + Mangala-Vrizabha = exceptionally powerful and direct speech)

  • POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge * uttama Vrishabha, involved with corporate oil interests; significant wealth via carrying out their wishes via his governance = Rahu's ruler Zukra-10

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 strives with Passion for the Physical:

  • to obtain the Privileges accorded to The Class of Conquerors

  • Elevation through New Movement

Empowerment via the narrative of human fleshly embodiment

dynamic movements of the physical body and the risk-taking behaviors of the social personality.

Tends to produce an exotic, rule-challenging entity who gets attention via extraordinary physicality.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1

humanness - physicality * embodies a new identity or brings new energy into the physical world; breaks outdated taboo restrictions on physical behaviors. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may have agency to amplify the human self-concept

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 seeks to "get ahead" via charming, fascinating personality integrity. Has agency of New Energy and New Information which infuses the physical visage with a Bright and Fascinating aura. Generally an exciting, extraordinary person.

The Naga King uses flesh-body appearance and traits to obtain social entitlements and material empowerments.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 proceeds on the presumption that one is uniquely entitled due to having been born with a special, noble destiny.

"The vain quest for glory and a personal spotlight."

Intriguing and vigorous personality integrity

  • charismatic and convincing in person

  • Rahu's camouflage includes vital identities such as: athlete, aristocrat, competitor, warrior, inventor, pioneer, first-arriver; Aryan, active, agile, alert

  • drishti from Kuja-6, Kuja-7, or Kuja-10 is highly energizing and increases the competitive, warlike instincts

may seem to produce a warm quality of vibrant, innovative energy

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may be instrumentally associated with the birth (1) of a new ergos "movement" (1)

  • POTUS-25 Gold Standard 1843-1901 William McKinley served 1897-1901. His election was considered to initiate a new "fourth stage party system" in USA politics and a new internationalism in foreign policy (Dhanushya)


Rahu in Bhava-1 flesh-body = privileges gained via muscular vitality and iconic personality.

Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic physical appearance.

  • Unusual circumstances regarding one's own birth.


Seeking ambitious, often pretentious, as-yet-not-fully-earnedpersonal entitlements

Professor Rahu generally wants what He lawfully cannot have or socially should not have .

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1's impatient desire = obtainment of privilege accorded to a celebrated champion, a spectacular winner, a Great Personality.

outcome depends

  • partially upon location-condition of lagnesha

  • partially upon lord of Rahu's nakshatra

  • partially upon drishti incoming to bhava-1

Whatever distinction He obtains in the hungry quest for privileges accorded to a great personality, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 can never be satisfied.

Immediately upon obtaining the object of desire, Rahu again yearns for more, better, different privileges. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 craves the entitlements granted to the class of beings who have earned the power to express innovation, competition, and forward-moving activity.

Every day starts a new battle for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1, as He leaps upward toward this ephemeral prize.

Narcissism

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is overinvested in physical body appearance and muscular strength. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1's engagement with their own self-image as "uniquely and exclusively qualified" can contribute to narcissistic anxiety.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 = amplified vital instincts toward self-elevation through rule-evading risk. The vehicle for achievement is the physical body . (If there are other graha yuti Rahu, the other graha will add other vehicles to the quest.)

The full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 5, 7, and 9.


Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 = "impressed with oneself" .

  • As an icon of a"movement" Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 wants to impress others as well.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 has oily, smoky fuel for generating life-force heat, vitality, and movement.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1moves with fascinating snake-like power. (A splendid placement for kundalini-type yoga.)

Rahu wants unearned privilege and entitlements via the"fast track".

Entitlement sought : chalakaraka Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 wants to give the 'impression' of holding legitimate status-rank credentials in the class of beings who demonstrate:

  • Winners, athletes and aristocrats , the dominantly competitive, the masculine,

  • Nobility, Aryan, the Supreme, first-born, the First-arrivers,

  • vitally energized, the innovative, the conquering, the bloody, the hunters and pursuers, the champions and the warriors

  • sword-bearers, machinists, shooters, hunters, conquerors, cutters, tailors, metal-smiths of knives, guns, and spears; butchers, surgeons, acupuncturists, injectors, dealers in heat, fuels, blood and metals

If Mangala or lagnesha-1 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of persons.


Rahu in bhava-1 * passion for vitality= materially successful = urgent ambition to obtain a privileged energetic flesh-body appearance (1) that fascinates the public. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1-poseur strives striving to project a mesmerizing, iconic personality which represents an entitlement-seeking social movement or a captivating idea .

Hungry desire to be recognized as a spokesperson ("spokes-model"), celebrity athlete, or iconic symbol, although one has not yet earned the right to emit the true aura of authentic vitality.

Via Rahu's characteristic ambition for recognition, one may find self-promoting opportunity in desirability competitions -- exempli gratia, beauty contests -- fraudulent political elections or temporary "flash in the pan" excitements.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 craves the power to symbolize and mesmerize and in this pursuit Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may infamously succeed.

Physical

  • Professor Rahu in bhava-1 also denotes an exotic or socially unusual factor in the physical body appearance

  • typically an oily-smoky veneer overlaid upon a vigorously active, sporting and moving figure

  • tending toward lean musculature due to Mangala's natural influence upon bhava-1

Deception and fraud

From the perspective of Chandra's customary rhythmic-sequence, eclipsing Rahu = Chandala = a great disrupter.

However if the customary order has become weakened or corrupt, Rogue Rahu's challenge to the established rhythm can produce beneficial consequences

Deception and fraud

From the perspective of Chandra's customary rhythmic-sequence, eclipsing Rahu = Chandala = a great disrupter.

However if the customary order has become weakened or corrupt, Rogue Rahu's challenge to the established rhythm can produce beneficial consequences

Fascination with the flesh-body appearance of iconic, charismatic, socially symbolic personalities

Fascinating, highly recognizable, physically distinctive, noble, vital, or athletic persons whose body-image has the power of iconic representation in their society.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 gains higher privilege via one's capacity to represent the vitality of a generation, an exciting or inspiring social movement, a forward-moving energy.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is not personally an agent of change nor is Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 an indication of intelligence. (The native might be intelligent, but if so another graha would cause it. Rahu is only a mirage.)

The power arises from one's ability to represent dynamic movement, competition, innovation, and conquest.

Exceptional strong placement for physical, muscular movement in a rashi of Mangala:

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 makes it one's business to possess those status-object appearance factors upon one's own person.

Unlike all other placements of Rahu, in the Tanu-bhava Rahula does not wish to possess an outside person place or thing but rather one wishes to become the Noble One, the Desired One.

Extremely focused upon physical appearance. May display a subtle swaying snake-like movement, or may mesmerize the Other with pupil-fixed gaze.

May risk irregular behavior in order to obtain the privileges accorded to highly recognizable personalities.

If Shani-yuti-Rahu, one may attempt to legitimize (Shani) the risky (Rahu) method -- for example, by developing the Powerful Personality construct within a corporate career or government institution. More emphasis on social status and less on athletic movement.

Rahu in classroom-1 vs Shani in classroom-1 vs Mangala in classroom-1

The difference = chalakaraka Rahu in classroom-1 does not perform the action (Kuja) and does not do the penance (Shani).

  • Professor Rahu in classroom-1 practices no austerity.

  • Professor Rahu in classroom-1 has no humility. He accepts no guidance.

  • He accepts neither limitation nor correction. He has no discipline (unless Shani-yuti-Rahu, in which case a very hard worker and indeed disciplined but often destroys the results with exotic risk).

  • He looks for loopholes and short-cuts.

  • Rahu in classroom-1 does not pass the examination; does not earn the achievement.

  • He just wants the rewards - and fast!

This debility can improve if there are other graha yuti Rahu, especially Shani.

To appreciate the distinctive qualities of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 versus other graha in 1, it can help to think of Mangala-1 where Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is a natural warrior and athlete often in competitive training and outputting major physical energy.

Shani-1 by contrast is a persistent and disciplined worker, who slowly albeit relentlessly earns the respect and privileges He seeks on a course with many setbacks and limitations.

Bhava-1 = social personality and physical flesh-body. The body-musculature and iconic personality provide the aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.

1 = 11th from 3rd

in His 11th-from gainful, economic, networking, association-seeking behaviors, Rahu co-lord of Kumbha-naturavriddhipati-11 produces the hunger to form profitable marketplace association with a specific class of persons.

Rahu craves to enter into association with those whose gains, profits and goal-achievement are typically obtained from activities of the 3rd portion.

Rahu aims to gain a fraudulent or as-yet-unearned qualification into this class of persons.

This class of entitled persons obtains material increase (11) from the basis of bhava-3 commerce .

in 11th from 3rd, Rahu desires those Fruits and profits (11) arising from matters of 3rd amza, including:

  • brothers
  • from collaborators
  • from team-mates
  • from short-term travel
  • from business busy-ness
  • from messaging and media-communication of every variety
  • from memoranda, letters, emails, message-delivery
  • from angels and evangelism
  • from news reports and announcements
  • from journalism
  • from movies, television, radio, internet, magazines, journals
  • from sales, advertising, marketing, public relations
  • from writing and publishing
  • from hand-craft and tool-using
  • from hands and lungs
  • from arts and artisans
  • from seminars and conferences
  • from information (not knowledge)
  • from training (not teaching)
  • from holiday travel (not scholarly travel)
  • from planning, scheduling, organization of details
  • from detail, retail, entail, curtail -- all matters of "sizing"

Mahadasha of Rahu

as well as most bhukti periods of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Vrishabha.

Rahu enjoys the uttama status in Vrishabha; the mahadasha is enriching.

Trajectory to higher privilege via Values, Knowledge, Story-telling, and death

  • retain the value

  • retell the story

  • restore the financial well-being

On the material level, results of Rahu periods are favorable, enriching, and sensually indulgent .

The typical starting scene is a treasury of value: fields and forests loaded with foods and natural resources, a family history and its lineage wealth, collections of art and music, perfumes and oils, droves of cattle, storehouses of knowledge and money.

The Rahu-Vrizabha experience begins with acquisition of assets (according to the bhava) which enrich one either capitally, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of the art of resource collecting is required. The environment supports every type of sensual pleasure, from the ever-satisfying pleasures of nutritious food and drink to the elite enjoyments of perfumes, jewels, cattle, and wines. Important actors typically hold rank of banker, collector, funds administrator, etc.

Pleasure from inside, pleasure from outside

  • Rahu-Vrizabha might engage in acquisitive sensual behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction to an unusual source of value.

  • The enriching of the social personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as a business engagement with cattle, resource warehousing, food storage, financial hoards, collecting and recording of historical knowledge. One might start the cycle with a desire to know more about history, especially within one's own family lineage, and to have more to eat.

Knowledge of Values, Languages, and Historical Forms of financial wealth

  • The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After embarking upon the quest for more and better sources of food, drink, and wealth, there is continuous development of historical knowledge regarding how one's lineage predecessors have stored information, made records, developed resource banks, and placed valuation upon various desirable commodities.

Rahu-Vrizabha is an excellent placement for the professional evaluator, food cultivator, resource conserver, historian, record-keeper and assets owner.

  • Rahu-Rahu swabhukti for POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton produced his 1968 Georgetown B.S. in Foreign Service * followed by a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford University, where he undertook the study of history and the treasury of nations with a great passion for philosophical knowledge.

  • During Rahu-Shani period, he met the charismatic law student Hillary Rodham. (Shani rules 7th navamsha)

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha

  • the onset of the period of intensive acquisition of food, wealth, and knowledge = 18 yrs for the major period and varying lengths for each bhukti and pratya-antardasha era.

It may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss from sensual saturation .

There may be a sudden disruption in the family of origin, even a cutting of family ties in cases where the default values of the family no longer facilitate the ambitions of the uttama-Rahu native. Typically the advancement of the Rahu-Vrizabha native involves moving up to a higher level of values refinement associated with more privileged classes, so that leaving behind more crude family values may be a functional social-mobility decision.

A death or abrupt separation from family lineage can serve as the 'opening bell' of this Rahu-Vrizabha mahadasha. (Vrishabha, history and values)

The initial onset of financial wealth crisis can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent to get moving toward the higher privileges, although typically at the time of Rahu + The Marana-karaka loss of previously rich or family-bound conditions, Rahu-Vrizabha blames 'circumstances beyond our control'. There is often a bout of financial poverty at the early beginning of Rahu periods when the values-target is shifting.

However psychically it is Rahu-Vrizabha's ambition to catapult oneself into the higher powered realm which eradicates previous historical values to make way for valuable new knowledge and a new trajectory toward the top levels of social recognition.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. Rahu-Vrizabha is invested into the culture of the new actors, and may be asked to accept a knowledge base and a set of values which is quite different from the value set with which one was raised.

Although it involves a great deal of elaborate re-valuation, particularly in the definition of family and kinship relations, one needs to acquire or remember elements of the new actors worldview in order for Rahu-Vrizabha to make the leap into one's next life phase.
