When in kendra-1, kendra-7, or kendra-10, Rahu-Makara = a favorable placement for ambition to obtain prestigious social governance positions.

Quest for Elite Respect and Recognition in peak-hierarchy roles.

Risk-loving Rahu-Makara rashi = fascinated by esoteric executive empowerment and high-visibility public roles.

Irregular engagement in governance responsibilities.

  • Wikileaks 1971- Julian Assange + uttama-Kuja-3 = communications messages

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson * harsh pioneer background including the decease of Father , mother and brothers all before he turned 14. Developed a violent, intolerant militarized personality that succeeded in tough businesses of war, murder, and slaving. Rahu-10-Makara casts drishti to Mangala-2-Vrishabha yuti Shani-2-Vrishabha *and* Rahu drishti to uttaraphalguni-Chandra-Kanya-6. In 1828, Jackson's shocking political win against the incumbent, elite diplomat POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams sent a wave of despair through the educated classes. Jackson's life followed a Rahu-trajectory of dramatic rise from desolate poverty to power and riches. Considered a boorish plebian unsuited for high office, Jackson's critics saw him as the very icon of American frontier crudeness. Yet he served two presidential terms 1829-1837 and retired into high wealth. No catastrophic fall due to cautious Shani-2 in 5th-from-10th and Shani-drishti to 4, 8, 11

  • POTUS-14 Bleeding Kansas 1804-1869 Franklin Pierce was a relatively young, nationally unknown, rather inexperienced fellow who suddenly was chosen as his party's compromise candidate toward the end of his randhresha-8 sudden transformations Mangala mahadasha in late 1852. Franklin Pierce exuded celebrity magnetism (Rahu-5) but he spent most of his time "politicking" and made very few executive decisions during his increasingly unpopular term in office. Most damningly, he avoided the urgent need to regulate slavery by saying that slavery would disappear naturally without legal intervention * Rahu-Makara trickery in lawful social order. Pierce is considered by historians to have been among the worst POTUS ever.

  • Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Catherine the Great * 8 coup, upheaval, sudden changes

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem * Zukra-yuti-Rahu

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Benazir Bhutto

Rahu Makara seeks privilege via rule-making roles. However due to Rahu's illicit nature, His rule-making involves a good deal of rule-breaking along the way.

Great leap forward into Governing, Ordering, Regulatory Privilege

Find Professor Shani and know His effects in the radix and navamsha.

  • Rahu will amplify Shani's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Makara.

Structure, position, ranking, and social justice entitlement

  • Great leap toward the top of the pyramid

Rahu-Makara is a complex and often ironic placement.

Rahu magnifies the desire for respectability and visibility. Rahu-Makara's "great leap" style is rather straightforwardly conventional in appearance. Hardworking, attentive to detail, diligent, careful and apparently unassuming in personal deportment..

Relentless, possibly ruthless, step-wise obtainment of reputation and respect in large, hierarchical organizations .

Craves "top of the hierarchy" leadership prestige and executive privileges.

Consumed with desire for recognition at the peak of a stepwise ascendance.

In Makara, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Shani-like law-enforcing characteristics.

Opportunistic Rahu may take risks in pursuit of Shani's conventional goals: one challenges the social systems of class, rank, and privilege in order to achieve recognition via class, rank, and privilege .

Desires to regulate the regulators .

May achieve association with high ranks of government officialdom via unusual, irregular or taboo relationships

Can become obsessed with capacity to prove a notable achievement of value to an entire society or civilization

to the point of taking individual credit for the work of a group


Mahadasha of Rahu for Rahu-Makara
  • General trends, environments, experiences of the Rahu mahadasha

Trajectory toward Prestige, via Expedient Route of *Appearing to* Conform to Conventional Standards

Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Makara. Rahu's disruptive and disorderly behavior is most unwelcome in the tightly regulated realms of Makara.

Rahu's Great Leap Forward must be cautious and careful. The typical starting scene is an institution , government, or other bureaucratic or conservatively operated environment.

The Rahu experience begins with some variety of social hierarchy (according to the bhava) whichranks and positions the nativeeither physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of law and orderis required. The environment supports rigidly habitual and conventional behaviors, and the important actors typically hold rank of director, president, chief, supervisor, etc.

Routine from inside, routine from outside

One might engage in self-regulating behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction * akarshana *.

The contraction of the scope of the social personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as wearing an institutional uniform or needing to follow a prescribed hourly office.

One might start the cycle with a desire to conform to the expectations of legislative authorities and win the acceptance of the highest directors of the social programme.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the conformist, self-organizing event, there is continuous establishment of habit and routine. If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha, the craving for approved and lawful appearance may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce. The death or profound separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. the native is regulated into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to assume a rank, so that the class system is fully established in the new order.

One must acquire or remember elements of this new actor's worldview in order for Rahu-Makara to make the leap into one's next life phase.
