Blue Mosque, Istanbul Turkia

Shani-12 = resistance to retreat + obligation to take lawful sanctuary while hosting the wisdom of the ancestors

Struggle to achieve luxurious pleasures, herds, and hoards.

Resistance to virtue, virility, value, worth.

Shani finds a hospitable residence in the rashi of His friend Zukra.

Shani-Vrizabha frozen blockage against Mangala's forward movement and against Surya's radiance = less difficult in sensual Zukra-ruled Vrishabha.

The placement is fairly innocuous unless Shani creates a nishturabhashi yoga oppressing the uttama-Chandra.

One may insist (Shani) that only the old ways (Shani) have value (Vrishabha) . A staunch traditionalist who is obliged (Shani) to maintain older lineages, including older orthodoxies.

  • Entertaining 1941- multimedia Martha Kostyra Stewart * Shani-yuti-Guru * famed for restoring old houses, barns, and modest historical properties. Due to multiplier Guru, there were many of these restorations.

  • Holy Science 1855-1936 Shri Yukteswara Giri was a strict exponent of an old lineage

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon * Zukra-2 parivartamsha Shani-5 * exponent of conservative political values

Shani-Vrizabha tends to put most of its regulatory, ordering, step-wise energy into building a shield of resistance against superficially structured, flimsy, or unlawful experiences of sensual luxury.

Shani-Vrizabha supports lawful and regular pleasures such as enjoyment of traditional music, historic architecture, and lineage values in all of the civilized arts.

Shani-Gokula supports animal husbandry, the lawful management of herds and hoards, and slow, systematic accumulations of financial wealth. However, Shani-Vrizabha cannot tolerate excessive speed in wealth-gathering nor can He permit illicit indulgence.

Conservative tastes. Favors simple, rigidly structured design. Generally prefers the traditional way of doing things. Wants to return the world to a simpler (and more difficult) time. Resists modernism, feels that modernism has low value.

Shani-Vrizabha is generally an artisan who favors small amounts of delicacy, slowly and carefully obtains.

Shani permits sensual indulgence in the lush products of field and forest (Vrishabha) yet He insists on getting pleasure in the old way.

The vintner with Shani Vrishabha may press his own grapes for wine; the farmer may harvest his own wheat for fresh-made bread; the singer will write one's own songs.

Since the old way is nearly always the hard way , will apply much effort and discipline toward learning old crafts and collecting historic objects which have been composed through the ancient methods.

May be a teacher of traditional crafts such as simple original cooking, weaving, and agricultural skills.

Shani-Vrizabha works hard and steadily accrues wealth . Manages cattle, forests, and agricultural assets. Needs to tame and control the natural groves and meadows.

Frustrations stem from limits on the speed of acquisition. Wants to own valuables, but often burdened with rules limiting or slowing the obtainment of financial wealth . Treasury-keeping responsibilities become burdensome.

Resists the pleasure nature through discipline and limits but not denial; Shani-Vrizabha is not a masochist but rather one who must pace and regulate the intake of sense data in a structured fashion.

  • Nose-to-the-grindstone effort must precede the nose-in-the-wine-bouquet pleasure; yet the 5-senses rewards will be obtained.

  • Many collections and accumulations, with much responsibility to maintain them.

  • Favors collections of historical objects, family antiques, and books in old languages.

Shani constrains the amount of time available to enjoy life's abundant natural beauty. Less time to relish natural wealth of artistic beauty, sensual pleasure, fine food and wine, exquisite textiles etc.

  • Macedon-King o-Megos 356-323 BCE Alexander-III accrued a stunning collection of treasures, pilfered by himself and his soldiers during their rapacious conquests. However, as soon as he was finished with one battle he embarked on another, leaving precious little time to enjoy any of it. He died age-32.

Professional responsibilities in food, art, music

  • French Chef Julia Child = responsibility for transmitting a huge historic culinary tradition in 30-minute television episodes

Stability and characteristic commitment to follow the golden mean is appreciated. One does accumulate significant financial wealth albeit more slowly than others, or with more impedence.

Das commentary upon Shani residing in Vrishabha rashi:

"You have connections with older things for pleasure , such as antiques, ancient customs or cultures, older spouses, and so on.

  • Not easily contented because the desires are unattainable.

Because you feel restrictions arise mainly out of society's typical understanding of happy family life,

  • you are compassionate on others' troubles , which you see all around you.

You try to restrain the presence of what you see as "typical happy home life" in yourself.

You try to make it more "true" and "more focused on higher principles."


All Saints Episcopal Church in San Francisco, California

"Progress comes by maintaining constant effort in daily practice."

~~ 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso (1997).
