Shani-Makara game-plan scripted elements may include:
Shani-2 = resistance to historical values + obligation to lawfully conserve
Shani-3 = resistance to collaboration + obligation to respectfully discuss - karma of plans, schedules, meetings
Shani-5 = disciplined resistance to celebrity + obligation to regulate creativity + children
Shani-6 = slow, determined accusations; disease + obligation to argue-defend-explain
Shani-8 = resistance to hidden forces + obligation to lawfully keep secrets
Shani-9 = resistance to change in doctrine + obliged to take preacher-teacher role. Rigid father.
Shani-11 = resistance to friendly association + obligation to regulate earnings
Shani-12 = resistance to retreat + obligation to take lawful sanctuary while hosting the wisdom of the ancestors
Shani-Shani = swakshetra
Karma of Rules, Social Order, Legitimacy.
Shani is good but He is still Shani = success comes only after lengthy procedure and considerable delay.
Solid position for Shani. Hard worker with a deep respect for the rule of law. Predictable and trustworthy mainstream values. Conventional approach to social behavior choices. Promotes public decency and respectful social manners.
Strong sense of duty and will perform any job required of their position. Not inclined to be disruptive or even overly creative. A reliable functionary in the craft of one's choice. One intends to build a record of successfully completed projects.
Demonstrates adherence to the rules and regulations which apply in one's community or industry. Has an interest in government and policy, usually motivated by an expectation that problems can be managed if not resolved through better law enforcement.
Seeks approval through conformity with middle-class expectations.
Conforms to conventional fashions in costume and behavior. Wants security and social approval. Obtains this goal through doing what they are told. Seeks a materially comfortable environment with minimal conflict and maximal protocol.
Well-liked in business and government. Organized, sensible, productive, and steady. Contented bureaucrat; servant of the people; an icon of reliable character, good manners and public decorum.
The downside of swakshetra Shani is that the native tends to be quite capable of handling social responsibility and - from a karmic sense of duty - is prone to accept too much of it.
If Shani dominates the radix, the social personality may be significantly (perhaps entirely) defined by heavy responsibilities for institutional governance.
Male may not always be at liberty to execute paternal responsibilities if his time is taken by duty to the corporation or the nation-state. (Dhanushya = patriarchal culture, fatherhood = 12th from Makara governance)
Physical stress zone : bones, joints, cartilage - particularly the knees.
Shani-6 in Makara rashi,
Excellent for success in government sponsored or controlled medicine, law practice with medical specialty (e.g., malpractice). Good for military regime, long term martial law, service environments with strict rules, lawful management of scarce resources under duress.
Helps one to succeed in import-export business (esp. buying or selling to government) and work in foreign lands, service work in temples as liaison to government, local official, or program manager.
There is however an implication of chronic health problems (as always with Shani-6) and if Zukra is involved one may self medicate leading to managed addiction.
However Shani-scarcity may block severe addictions due to inadequate supply.
Shani is the agent of "no-change", conformity, uniformity, non-movement, non-innovation, freeze-up, seize-up, stop.
Professor Shani's rashi shows the type of environment in which Shani must lawfully be situated; yet the people, places, and things in this environment are anathema to Him, and He must always resist them. Shani's rashi shows "where you are stuck" in the karmic curriculum. It is a study course that you need to repeat.
This course has theory, "problem sets " for practice in applying principles to abstract problems, laboratory experiments using real substances, research papers presenting what others think about the topic, projects demonstrating your ability to put theory into practice, and final examinations.
Shani's rashi shows the difficult environment with its features and actors, who create the venue in which Shani expresses fear, anxiety, and punishment, along with stepwise earning of the privilege to advance in hierarchies and imposition of lawful social order.
In Professor Shani's natural rashi of Makara, No-Go Shani says "not 'no', but 'slow'" to the hierarchical, lawful, step-wise, ranked, punitive, bureaucratic, materialistic, socially stratified, conformist, regulatory, statutory, governing characteristics of Makara.
Although Shani cannot prevent the existence of Makara's constant, orderly status-ranking, Shani can prevent these behaviors from moving forward too quickly.
Shani fears institutional movements in Makara. Even while He facilitates hierarchical step-wise ascent via strict rules for promotion, He needs to keep that promotion slow and tightly regulated.
Shani resists disorderly application of laws and policies; therefore Makara's body of legislation must be tightly regulated even while the size of the resource pyramid is growing. Shani resists any sort of disorderly environment. He hates the irregular, the unanticipated, the instinctual, and the sudden.
He hates any sort of disregard for law, and type of immaturity or chicanery. Shani-Akokera will permit and even support regular growth of institutions and corporations, -- but this progress MUST be slow and orderly in conformity with past models.
Most importantly, Makara-ruled pyramids will concentrate the great majority of power and resources in a small number of elite persons at the top, and top-down decisions are made at that elite peak, while the mass of workers constitute the huge base below.
Shani-Makara supports every expression of socially approved behaviors, so long as the rules of social order are strictly followed and respect is accorded to the elite classes at the top of the hierarchy. Shani-Akokera may feel obliged to freeze out the hot flames of creativity or individual intelligence in His attempt to maintain uniformity and facilitate lawful governance.
Simha-Makara hold a 6/8 angle to Simha thus Simha individualistic charismatic politicians are the natural enemies of the generally quiet class of regulators who are Makara. Shani- Ena feels threatened by political excitement, and generally tries to suppress it.
Shani does His best to deny, withhold, constrain, and restrain unnecessary action but in law-and-order Makara, Professor Shani feels at home. Shani-Akokera is not afraid of sudden changes in His own tightly ordered environment. Therefore Shani becomes quite strong in Makara.
In Makara, Shani experiences the environment around Him as quite regular. Hierarchies of privilege and bureaucratic pyramids are hospitable environments for Shani, and He works diligently to ascend the steps of the structure in slow and regular patterns, testing and verifying conformity to the law as He cautiously proceeds.
He resists law-breakers, and may act to punish them; He resists those who may masquerade as agent of lawful hierarchies, yet who may express hypocrisy as inferior exponents of the law.
Shani-Makara demands verifiable application of the law to each material situation; proof that those in power have properly earned or been appointed to that power; and regular inspection of existing residents of the ranks
to ensure that irregular occupants are legally returned to their proper rank and class. Shani-Makara freezes disorderly actions via legal punishments.
He stalls and prevaricates to distract and discourage those who would substitute impractical ideals or unique individuality for the rule of law that applies to all (although some are more equal than others). Shani uses various types of barrier and blockage to prevent or at least retard any sudden, disruptive movements within large hierarchies.
A person with Shani in Makara is typically rather straightforward and reasonable, although their lives may seem to have more legislative and social-class pressure than average.
Shani- Makara dislikes 6th-from Mithunaya and 8th-from Simha. Mithunaya appeals to small-group process and rapid communication rather than large, slow, lumbering process of institutions; while Simha asserts the divine intelligence of the Surya- entitled individual, which Shani cannot accept.
If the nativity is free of graha in either Mithunaya or Simha, life may proceed cautiously, with predictable uniformity and adherence to the rules of material and social success. However any graha in Mithunaya or Simha may be problematic during Shani periods.
