| WE DON'T DESERVE RESOLUTION |
When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times
by Pema Chödrön, p. 54
| "As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. |
However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution.
We don't deserve resolution; we deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity.
To the degree that we've been avoiding uncertainty, we're naturally going to have withdrawal symptoms -- withdrawal from always thinking that there's a problem and that someone, somewhere, needs to fix it."
|Professor Shani's classroom|| |
Shani-6 drishti to 8-12-3 is generally helpful by providing resistance to the outcomes of 8, 12, and 8th-from-8th.
Professor Shani in bhava-6 instructs His pupils upon the topics of karma of enemies, debts, pollution, accusations, conflicts, disease
Professor Shani in bhava-6 imposes (for the purpose of the lesson) the obligation to argue-defend-explain-litigate-accuse-crusade
Professor Shani in bhava-6 directs the judgment of those who regulate "weights out of whack"
Professor Shani in bhava-6 insists that His student fulfill their social obligation to argue on behalf of the exploited, the ill, the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, the criminal, the toxic, the polluted, the marginalized, the untouchable, the victims
Professor Shani in bhava-6 delivers a sequence of instructional experiences that are often associated with long-term illnesses and very slow recovery times; alternatively, the student of Professor Shani may be a physician specializing in time-related ailments, aging
Bhava-6 is overall a favorable placement for Professor Shani. He enjoys teaching in this classroom. Here, He is able to sustain chronic social conflicts, chronic illnesses, and enduring states of exploitation and pollution. It is only in this specific laboratory that Professor Shani can efficiently deliver His lessons on topics of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy state (physical, social, financial, emotional and sometimes mental). Professor Shani does offer remedies for these long-lasting human conditions. However the remedies must be lawful and they are generally slow to take effect.
Shani delays but He does not deny. Therefore all problems which occur via the influence of Shani in bhava-6 are capable of resolution according to time and patience.
Shani in Ari Bhava - 6
must serve the suffering - or - suffer in servitude
superb placement for military officers, social workers, medical workers, loan officers, professionals dealing with pollution, and others in lawful service to long-lasting imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, exploitive situations
Topics taught in Professor Shani's classroom include:
Professor Shani's classroom in bhava-6 features the experience of matching the fear of the physicians, fear of disease, of the accusers, fear of the criminals, fear of the exploiters, fear of war, fear of the servants, fear of fighting , fear of conflict, fear of the mother's siblings.;
Shani's instruction in upachaya sthana are particularly objective and clear. The Professor declares: "stop matching that which is not lawful to you" (stop matching the fears of others) and proceed with care.
Favorable position for professions which require skill and patience in managing (not solving) chronic problems. A specialist in socially embedded "problematics ". Splendid placement for physicians and those who deal professionally with accusations, victimization, exploitation, enslavement, war, pollution, and crime.
Rigidly entrenched, fossilized problems
Rigid rules applied to 8-secrets, 12-imagination-research, 3-manufacturing, management, protocol, process
Shouldering the Burden
Overall, unless one can create a calm space between the incumbent duty to deal with the problems versus the problems per se, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 tends to be oppressed by the weight of the problems and to become exhausted by the social resistance to resolution.
Typically not an easy position for obtainment of easy happiness yet these responsible and sober natives are socially important.
One may receive some satisfaction from the knowledge that having shouldered the burden of managing these problems one has contributed to a longer-term solution which may occur many years after one's own death.
Shani does not permit much creativity in response to conditions exploitation, poverty, war, or disease. Rather He supports persistence under stress. Health imbalance-seeking-a-remedy may seem irresolvable and strictly fixed. The problem-solving workload is heavy, while solutions may seem few and far between.
Managing Criticism Critical Approach to Human Problematics Relentless Responsibilities in
Critical Approach to Human Problematics
Relentless Responsibilities inmedicine, military, legal defense, , Ministries of Service.
Managing Chronic Conditions of Disproportion
Ministry to the poor, the exploited, the used-up, the desperate, the disenfranchised, the ill, the medicated, toxic, the polluted -- including the natural environment).
Shani = friend of the natural 6th lord Budha. Shani's systematic, orderly, conformist, hierarchical behaviors are generally welcome in Bhava -6, and Shani can do excellent work here. If Shani-yuti-Budha, one might sustain a long career in service despite complaining the whole time.
In Ari Bhava, cranky old Shani = chronically critical, argumentative, litigious, and prone to excessive realism that can produce "entrenched pessimism" toward life and work. Yet that work is steady and diligent.
grumpy Shani may accomplish remarkable "feats of servitude" in fields of human services ministry , clinical healthcare, legal advocacy for the poor and disenfranchised, and legislation regarding the health of Earth's natural environment.
Shani's success in Bhava -6 is notably related to the behavior of miserly Shani who does not waste energy trying to "change the system" in order to eliminate exploitation, pollution, and servitude. One works with the system "as is ".
Effort due to Lack of medical, military, or ministry credibility (anti-Surya)
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 represents resistance to change which necessitates the effort that is required to achieve a consistent and credible role as an agent of pollution, accusation, ailment, or conflict or an agent of remediation of these imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.
Chronic, long-lasting System imbalance-seeking-a-remedy
Any graha in bhava-6 can have agency of physical ailment. Professor Shani in bhava-6 teaches about = "system (Shani) imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (6).
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 associated with disordered states of insufficiency, deficiency, cramping, rigidity, paralysis, stiffness, pinching, dryness, depletion, and coldness .
Disease labels beginning with the Greek prefix 'hypo-' meaning 'not enough' or 'under normal' are commonly the work of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6.
For example: hypoglycemia, hypothyroid (Vrishabha), hypo-activity Meza) , hypo-proteinemia, hypo-aminoacidemia, etc.
Resistance to Divorce
Shani = Resistance to Forward Movement.
Bhava-6 = all matters of conflict and disproportion, including divorce.
A strong Shani in the satkona often signifies long-term resistance to divorce, despite the presence of conflict within the marriage union.
Shani prefers long separations or avoidance altogether of marriage vows (if the union is not legalized it will not be vulnerable to a later divorce).

Karma of workplace servitude, toxicity and disease, argumentation and disagreement
Parashari drishti to domains: 8, 12, and 3.
Shani the Taskmaster functions best in Makara, Kumbha, and Thula
All forecasts improve with planetary support from Budha.
Papagraha in dusthamsha gives beneficial results
Like all malefic graha in 6, Shani in the Ripu Bhava provides some beneficial outcomes including personal stamina, endurance, and resistance to the incursion of poverty, debt, and disease.
It is possible for this native to remain in a non-compliant (6) marriage or overburdened workplace (6) for a long time (Shani).
Acceptance of Social Responsibility
A heavy burden in areas of dealing with toxic pollution, drugs and medical illness, exploitation of people and resources, human-resources management, servitude and employee matters, poverty, usury, and crime; divorce, litigation and social conflict.
In childhood, Shani in 6 indicates that the mother's relatives = taskmaster or oppressor, especially her younger sibling.
6 = the dysfunctional shad-ashtaka 6-8 from 1
One experiences a powerful sense of duty to apply lawful methods toward management of social conflict in the areas of animosity, servitude, exploitation, poverty, and disease especially via pollutants.
Shani drishti upon 8 extends the lifespan.
Face is typically boney and skeleton is strong. (Naturally, drishti incoming to 2 can alter the appearance.)
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 = possessed of stamina and endurance in matters of litigation although due to Shani's drishti upon 8 there are delays and gaps in discovery of hidden facts.
Remarkable persistence through health difficulties.
Shani periods bring broken contracts, sometimes causing catastrophic loss because Shani drishti evokes the powers of 8, 12, and 8th-from-8th (3).
But Shani as ruler of 10th from swakshetra sustains the public service career, and even if the results are less than satisfactory, indeed one soldiers on.
Personal change = resistance
Wherever Shani goes He is essentially reactive not proactive.
Typically Shani's bhava will indicate the area of life toward which the native is full of social duty but resistant to the suggestion that one may accept a deeper personal responsibility for regulating one's own thoughts and emotions.
Independent Intelligence, Genius Oppressed by Government agency in medicine, military, legal defense, , service ministries
Shani imposes regulated vertical (Makara) and horizontal (Kumbha) systems. Shani in Bhava -6 = systems of medical, conflict-management, policing-military, and social service ministry to the sick and abused.
Argument Anxiety. Fear and worry regarding loss of contract resulting in servitude.
Must work to earn validation of the workplace efforts. Works to be fully approved, in compliance, and judged perfect under the rule of statutory law . Yet survival fears based in past-life karma enforce the mandate to perform this work over and over again, until the ignorance is transformed into wisdom.
" Not serving enough" syndrome.
Shani is capable of enduring long-term (Shani) legal battles (6)
Shani in 6 gives workplace stress. Affects the physical body location according to the rashi. Tension and anxiety from dealing with servants and employees."Human resources " issues in professional environments. Karmic effort required to manage (not resolve) problems with animals (6), medical service, the service class and underclass, management of scarce resources (Shani) toxicity and pollution, animosity in the workplace.
Diseases of old age, of dryness, skin and nerve ailments, brittleness, exhaustion from chronic argumentation, loss of agreement with the social contract, persistently unresolvable conflicts, arguments with the government, class struggle.
Resistance and delay toward animosity, debt, disease, argument, and social conflict. . The particular type of resisted conflict will be indicated by the rashi and any companion graha.
One has the karmic obligation o deal with enemies and ideas, relationships, or objects that are inimical to the self.
the native is a hard worker who is busy carrying out service responsibilities.
One is rarely a social justice reformer. Rather, one works within the existing social structure, as unjust as that regulated system may be.
Illness develops slowly
Shani in Bhava -6 works the socially approved systems of static social imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, chronic crime, and habitual exploitation.
This configuration features a
his person must apply sustained effort with limited resources (Shani)oward the maintenance of drug and medical technology distribution channels, law courts and legal offices, police and military installations and code of conduct, jails and medical clinics, social welfare systems, and every form of crime.
the native displays a sober determination to accept imbalance-seeking-a-remedy and conflict as one finds them. One with Shani in Bhava -6 works within the system which perpetuates social injustice. Specifically NOT a karaka for eliminating or fundamentally changing the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy that one can perceive in personal relationships, society, or nature.
Shani in Bhava -6 conforms to the reality of conflict and accepts the fact of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, working to make only small and socially acceptable changes in the big picture. Excellent for trial attorneys, social workers, medical professions, writers and observers of social reality, police/military, and unassuming people everywhere.
Habits of reasoning and legal argumentation are resistant to change. the native who wishes to change one's style of working, which involves either hard labor or very long hours of task-performance, will find such a project to be slow-going and demanding much time.
Try as one might to change the package of attributes, one's mentality of servitude will persist. The elders (Shani) get sick and disabled (6) in old age, and one must accept responsibility for them.
comfortable and pleasing results :
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 Thula uttama-
If there is any graha in bhava-7, the bhukti of Shani during the mahadasha of that graha-in-7 are notably tiring often due to a heavy clinical workload and unbalanced peer relationships.
One may well be in servitude at some level, doing the work for which others take credit.
Exploitation of your sense of duty by predatory others, and being required to accept responsibility for the way others use drugs, receive loans, or mount litigious complaints is to be expected.
As always with the uttama- Shani however there is high dignity in the satkona = a bhava of service ministry. The disadvantaged classes depend upon your ability to impose a lawful environment even where conditions of disproportion and exploitation surround you re your authority zone.
Professor Shani in favorable rashi = Karaka for a physician who manages disease, a divorce lawyer or marriage counselor who manages chronic relationship conflict, police or military who manage social conflict, bank loan officer who manages financial insufficiency and indebtedness.
Shani in Bhava-6 does NOT work to "change the system" of social inequity, exploitation, and unfairness. Shani = work and hierarchies; Bhava -6 = ministries of service, military, and medicine. Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 approaches hierarchies of good and hierarchies of evil with equal respect.
Shani's interest first and foremost is the native 's own security, established via one's rank and position in one's chosen hierarchy.
Thus Shani in Bhava -6 will normally find a titled position within a profession, ideally supported by a large and well-defended hierarchy.
Some difficulties or maturation may be required before obtaining agreements in relationship to family of the mate = in-laws (8) . Pressure on mental health/courage (3) and inner peace/prayer (12) due to a sense of scarcity of resources, most importantly not enough time.
Shani drishti from sthana-6, upon three negative sthana of domains 3, 8 and 12, has the pleasant effect of reduce-and-delay upon frenetic mentality (3), sudden forced changes (8), and loss of identity within the private imagination (12).
In youth, this native is restless and frustrated, seeking the company of vulgar associates and engaged in labor of servitude. In maturity, the native may come to understand one's karmic obligation to endure the dissolution of equality in relationships and the breakdown of contractual agreements.
The mature native may be able to express the wisdom of Seva: to serve in the interest of compassion, with neutrality toward the lack of equity in one's material reward.
The ever-cautious Professor Shani residing in bhava-6 is aware of the inherent potential of any type of communication to cause an argument or instigate litigation.
Professor Shani does not like to start new things. In bhava-6, He particularly does not like to start new arguments. However, He will persistently repeat Old Arguments.
The communications are conservative due to Shani's strongest 10th drishti upon Bhava -3.
One is careful what one says and particularly careful what one writes.
Publications may become problematic as "the devil is in the details " (Shani), yet in the lifetime numerous carefully crafted reports are necessary (Shani).
Handwriting and tool-use may be studied, over-regulated, or even cramped.
Long-term ailments (6) affecting the hands (3), depending on the rashi of 3 and 6.
If in addition Shani casts drishti upon Budha, the effects are increased.
Shani in Bhava -6 in Mithuna,
"Loss of health and money are predicted.
Lifelong dedication to conflict management but NOT conflict resolution and NOT system change.
May be involved in litigation and complaints of wrong-doing, whether as a law-maker, solicitor, social advocate, accuser, accused, or party to the complaint.
Comfortable and materially successful results from Legal (Shani) argumentation (6) which should not change from the received cultural format, that is classically presented and austere but well-structured, is much favored in Bhava -6.
Das /Behari says:
"Saturn in the 6th house produces sexual problems .
Sex will be a very unorthodox kind of experience for you, but out of it there may arise a realization of your spiritual nature.
Deprivation of a normal sex life ... a tendency toward bizarre or unusual relationships enables you to secure special gifts from unexpected and unknown quarters which remove many personal difficulties.
You may not always succeed in relating these two events, but both are impelled by Saturn.
You may suffer from some physical ailment without expressing your pain to others. Doctors may not succeed in treating you easily.
Despite such personal anguish and sorrow, you enjoy great renown and social esteem .
You may have trouble and hindrances in early life.
No help or support from any quarter. Much criticism . Little gain after much labor and effort.
Trouble for maternal uncles and aunt.
Gain through some income or employment.
Premature retirement due to sickness.
Loss or trouble through attendants and menials;
animals, accidents and operations, indigestion, circulatory problems, debility, diabetes or venereal diseases.
Brave and intelligent, powerful, fortunate, with plenty of pleasures, jewelry and conveyance, learned, rich and happy, free from enemies, favorite of the government, loving spouse and lucky sons.
You have few relatives and brethren;
annihilates your enemies; growing wealth. Blessed with some income or employment.
Trouble through maternal uncles.
You are not scared of thieves, a strong controversialist and combatant. Gain through quadruped.
Known all over. Most generous, prosperous but not without some trouble. Fond of merit; noble, protector, with good appetite, strong and healthy.
Deficiency of argumentation
core areas of initial lack of understanding + required repetition =
Repeating Homework Assignments =
In the present lifetime, the native accepts responsibility (without guilt) to logically problem-solve a number of thorny, repetitive situations which may be ultimately explained as elaborate narrative expressions of victim-mind.
May be rejected by physicians, servants, animals, or the mother's relatives.
the native is challenged to repeat many"practice" iterations while learning the art of logical analysis and argumentation . The lifetime is devoted to the slow and patient eradication of the at-birth deficiency regarding criminal behaviors, repeating patterns of toxicity and pollution, habitually adversarial personalities , chronic inability to achieve agreement, marital unhappiness, jealousy, and victim-mind.
Shani friend of Budha = in 6 = surprisingly good for marriage longevity because Shani resists divorce;
however check randhresha-8 to see rate of spin for cycle of sudden changes
Core Practice Environments which require repetitive drill and careful study :
Das comments "Saturn is in 6,
and Saturn is in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Cancer, Scorpionis or Pisces."
"This gives general fortune , favorable."
Das comments "Saturn is in 6, and Saturn is in Cancer, Scorpionis or Pisces."
"Diabetes and urinary troubles; better health after marriage."
Effects of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6
Health, physical and emotional
Illnesses related to hardness, excess iron, cold air, dryness, old age, rigidity, brittleness, loss of lubricant (dryness), blueness, constriction, limitation, anxiety, pinching, stoppage, weight, exhaustion.
Similarly, keeping a suspicious distance from police and military agents can result in avoidance of confrontation.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 suffers very little oppression from agencies of conflict suppression, and one will in general stay out of the offices of litigious attorneys as well - except to supervise and instruct them in the lawful execution of their craft.
One is engaged in chronic and habitual conflicts, usually those related to class structures or large-scale social folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, but one is not personally subject to exploitation or abuse by police unless other graha instigate personal involvement.
Beneficial bhava for the classroom of Professor Shani!
Reduces, slows, impedes all dushthamsha - which is a good thing!
This person is one tough cookie.
Not scared of enemies, debt, or disease. the native must work hard in this life on problems of a habitual, structurally embedded, and intractable nature. Very hard worker with a pragmatic and sober view of entrenched social conflict.
One does not waste time looking for someone else to do their work for them or someone vulnerable to blame for mistakes.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 deals perseveringly with the social underclass, environmental polluters, thieves, drug dealers and drug addicts, poverty and the poor, finance/usury/illegal monies/pyramid schemes.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 is generally a good-to-neutral indicator of sober but stable mental health, since the native is working with known problems toward which society generally encourages its members to have low expectations of resolution.
Conflict and disagreement, illness and exploitation, are famously bad aspects of the human condition which the native with Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 meets with a very reasonable set of negative expectations.
The end result is a lifetime of practical, and potentially high-paying professional work (6 = bhagya 9th-from-10th) toward which work the native takes a dedicated but rather impersonal view framed by a rather non-glamorous understanding of"social necessity".
Rarely disappointed by the poor behavior of others.
Not shocked by the vulgarity of human selfishness, indecency, criminal acts etc. Neutral, lawful, and repetitive in duties of karmic payback.
Often rises to respected position in socially regulated organizations that handle accusations of wrong-doing or matters of the underclass (crime/poverty/illness) or environmental toxicity or or chronic disease conditions.
In maturity , after a long career of being underappreciated, often on earns significant respect due to one's senior experience in medicine, law, or military operations.
Social service work, overly constrained by pressure to conform to the standards of the lowest-common-denominator. Karma obliges the native to work in conditions of static imbalance-seeking-a-remedy within medicine, finance, or enforcement of law.
Bhava -6 = the relative 12th-house for marriage = spouse may be closed-minded about sexual (7) expression or the native may not wish to articulate (Shani) one's private desires and dreams (12) within the contractual marriage. It may be more suitable to Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 to express with a prostitute (6) the fantasies and emotions that seem disallowed in marriage.
Association with prostitution, but perhaps in a clinical social service role.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 accepts one's own sickness, accepts exhaustion, deterioration and heavy workload, then in maturity shows others the basic rules of health/illness. Showing others what they learned,through exhausting repetition and failure of alternatives, is the source of their later-life respect.
Karmic debt and repayment
When Shani occupies the maha-dushtamsha, considerable karmic repayment = on schedule in regard to social duty and leadership roles.
In both personal and professional life, responsibilities which oblige the native to impose lawfully ordered conditions tend to be exploitive.
Although it is necessary to proceed through a series of regulatory environments in order to burn off the karmic ignorance and transform same into wisdom, it can be hard going in this legalistic business of imposing a socially authoritative, accountable
A broken yoke
Particularly when the satkona is inhabited by multiple graha, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 does most of the work in partnerships. The Other (often a client, a criminal, or a servant) has been assigned to a karmic script which instructs them to run away with most of the energy of what should be (according to social dicta) jointly agreed contracts.
Energy goes out from the graha in 6. Yet partner-confirmation and social-approval of the true importance of services (6) rendered will rarely flow back in.
Lower expectations = better health
As a general rule, there is a repeating pattern of disappointed expectations (6), broken promises (6), and failed agreements (6) in matters of one's own role in large hierarchies, especially significantly authoritative leadership roles. Also, dealings with the larger economies of goods, services, and ideas are more likely than not to result ultimately in under-compensation or undervaluation of the labor expended.
Beneficially, however, the movement of one's enemies is limited by Shani. The law controls them.
Shani the repeater ensures that contracts have to be re-written and re-negotiated many times. Lifetime commitments like marriage are restrained in a climate of suspicion and resistance.
The law is neither as efficient or as effective as it should be. Even if the level of professionalization (Shani) or status (Shani) = materially high, matters of legal recompense become problematic, and over time the native gives out much more in labor than one receives in payments.
Debt management is particularly thorny. Clients or recipients of service can be Shani-slow in paying their bills. Although Shani prevents one from accruing unlawful debt, the two bhava ruled by Shani may convert matters of those bhava into lawful debt. For example, dharmesha-9 Shani for a Mithuna lagna may create debt from world-travel.
One's professional (Shani) environment = affected by the adversarial script. On the one hand, when Shani occupies 6, a profession which lawfully and in a socially approved fashion addresses the reality of criminal behaviors is quite likely to succeed. Examples would be litigation attorneys, military officers, and substance-abuse counselors. However, exploitation and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy become the daily bread-and-butter reality of the native . Being bombarded day in and day out with an endless litany of accusations and complaints can make a person tired and rather somber in character.
The key to mental-social (Budha-6-Shani) health = to appreciate that one is highly unlikely to receive much recognition, reward, or repayment for professional services rendered specifically in the workplace. Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 does not typically harm the home life unless Shanaicarya = also the bandesha-4 (for Thula and Vrizchika lagna) or Shani+Chandra (nishturabashi yoga in 6). Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 would possibly harm the marital life if Zukra-yuti-Shani or if Shani - yuvatipathi-7 (for Karkata and Simha lagna). Otherwise the impact of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 is mainly in the professional workplace, where the labor-burden is heavy and the damage potentially caused by the enemies (which one is charged to curtail) threatens to harm all of society.
No matter how lawful (Shani) orderly (Shani) or disciplined (Shani) one may be, the scheduled beneficiaries of one's austerity-imposing, regulatory arguments are not intended to acknowledge the gift.
Bhava-6 is a toxic, unfair, victim-minded, enslaved, addicted, criminalized and often warlike environment full of blaming, accusations, litigation, and endless interpersonal conflict.
Naturally, when Shani the regulator of material and social order is born into the Satkona, the very bhava of 'dissolution' 12 of fairness 7, there can be a great deal of frustration in regard to the professional colleagues and the government, as well as a rather chronic legalism or picking on small items of argument . Shani never has the 'big picture' the way Guru does.
Also, physicians and their medications rarely produce the expected result. Medical advice is too conservative, too conventional, or too much hide-bound by legal concerns. Chronic medical conditions ensue (according to the rashi of Shani).
It makes sense to live in a way that does not require one's criminal clients, physicians, or adversaries to demonstrate a strict adherence to the law. The nice thing about Shani the Realist in 6 is that Shani really does not expect criminals to adhere to the law. The error of clinging to unsustainable expectations of equity and social harmony is thus much reduced.
It is the nature of the maha-dushtamsha that for the native with penalizing Shani in 6, the more one gives, the more 'broken others' will take. There is little opportunity for graha in 6 to maintain equitable, just, or mutually satisfactory professional contracts on the basis of 'gentleman's agreement' or other non-specific social custom.
Legal contracts with very carefully stipulated material terms of agreement may have been success if the yuvatipathi-7 is strong. However the professional relationships as well as most law-making functions are corrupted in this life. Promises especially those related to social policy or professional acknowledgment are rarely fulfilled as expected.
For a purpose!
Papagraha in dushthamsha gives beneficial results in regard to limiting the effects of enemies. Malefics to some extent usually prosper in dushthamsha.
Shani the Stone is helpful in bhava-6, where He introduces a hard realism regarding the constitutional flaws of human nature .
Shani in 6 specializes in managing (not correcting) deeply intractable" carved in stone" problems of age, institutionalization, legalized crime, oppressive traditions and conventions, established class barriers, long-standing issues of victimization and disenfranchisement.
Shani is capable of enduring and sustaining long-term legal complaints.
Example: the legendary long, drawn out, legal battles of celebrity model Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 Anna Nicole Smith
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 represents resistance to change in matters of awkward, polluted, exploited, or illegal situations.
Excellent position for procedural, treatment-plan oriented physicians handling chronic (Shani) illness or toxicity, social workers, environmental litigators, or any human services ministry or one who works to defend the vulgar, the marginalized, the isolated, the ignorant, the exhausted, the dark (Shani) or the socially disenfranchised (6).
As always with bhava-6, one may either serve or suffer.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 may succeed professionally in any specialty dealing with the exploited and their exploiters, the irritable, the underclass, the working class, prostitutes, the dispossessed, criminals, poverty and the poor, sickness and physicians, war and the military, loans and indebtedness, toxicity, pollution, and litigation of conflict in the law courts.
Traditionally Shani in bhava-6 harms the sexual compatibility of marriage .
Oppressed by large groups, institutions, governments
One may feel victimized or wronged by the government, huge bureaucracies, large organizations and systems, the bones and skeleton of the body, by heavy duties and responsibilities, by one's work schedule, by funerals and humiliating conditions of death (particularly amongst siblings or the mother's relatives) by unjust applications of the rule of statutory law and social order.
Tendency to misappropriate items related to social rank-title and lawful position. Occasionally, via the false-claims function of bhava-6, one may misrepresent or fraudulently claim to have earned status-enhancing achievements for example this scenario can occur when Shani the social-regulator bossy karmesha-10 ..
It is also possible for one with Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 to inappropriately assume the right to dictate laws or regulations to others of lower status (6).
May manifest as a"policing complex" wherein the native misinterprets the true vocational mandate to organize scarce resources and work on behalf of the downtrodden. The subconscious error, carried over from parallel lives , is to misunderstand one's entitlement to serve, as a mandate to oppress others through petty regulation and excessive focus on the"letter of the law".
May also become self-oppressing through OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) in which multiple small and obscure rules and regulations may bring the mind into a state of Anxious paralysis .
If Shani is helped by benefics, the inner-argument (6) may experience the benefits of mental discipline, and the native may manifest a genius of medical service for the common man.
Employment status and periods of separation from one's work
In general, Budha's swabhava is a neutral environment for hard-working Shani.
the native with Shani in Bhava -6 is unobtrusive and low-ego in the workplace. Over time, neutral acceptance in service matures into sincere respect for one's Saturnian qualities: regular attendance; accepting responsibilities; uncomplaining diligence; attention to detail; and most importantly, fundamental commitment to serve the goals of the corporation, institution, or hierarchy within which one works.
However, bhukti periods of Shani may force stubborn resistance to workplace changes.
When Shani occupies an challenging angle from the mahadasha pati, Shani's characteristic resistance to change can result in separation from the habitual workplace . the native packs up one's tools and moves to another place of employment.
"A challenging planet in a challenging amsha gives good results ".
Fundamentally, Bhav -6 controls the"loss of agreement" in every relationship - whether personal, social, mental, moral, physical, or spiritual.
Professor Shani is the king of Hard Work and Stubborn Resistance to Change. Shani's fierce determination to survive this lifetime via exhausting hard work and conformism is a valuable weapon in the world of enemies, debts, and disease.
Bhava -6 rules servitude and slavery, powerlessness and oppression, poverty and conflict. the native with Shani in Bhava -6 accepts the endless demands of conflict-management with sober resignation to one's task. In the end, one with Shani in Bhava -6 wears down his enemies via sheer longevity and persistence.
Professor Shani is a karaka for fearful expectations of all kinds. Shani brings "worrying" a nd pervasive anxiety into His bhava residence.
Health: the native feels a conservative constraint in regard to health. One resists the expense of medicines and cures, and avoids going to see the doctor.
im-paired = unbalanced
Sexual relationships = Bhava -7.
Sexual health may suffer from erosion or dissolution of vitality when a malefic graha occupies 12th-from-7th"impairment of agreement in contracts and relationships ".
It is important to appreciate that one with natal Shani in Bhava -6 is in subconscious collusion with this situation of static inequality in sexual balance and unmet intimate needs. Shani values stability much more than creativity, and Shani abhors change. As a default result, the native 's adult relationships simply duplicate the depressed mentality and suppression of conflict in the childhood home (Shani in radix 3rd-from-4th).
Shani in Bhava -6, sexual balance prognosis for Multiple marriages:
Should the native have several primary sexual unions (marriages and other committed partnerships) prognosis for sexual imbalance-seeking-a-remedy due to Shani in Bhava -6 applies to the first marriage only.
Shani insinuates qualities of ignorance, resistance and resentment into the enterprises of Bhava -6: medical clinics * especially low-income or poverty clinics; loan-making and usury; domestic violence and chronic marital discord; drug addiction, prostitution, and every type of crime.
Shani's name is "kronos ""Time". Bhava -6 encompasses all the ailments of the chronic imbalance-seeking-a-remedy: poverty, jealousy, and greed.
When Shani = uchcha, swakshetra, or in a rashi of Zukra , in Bhava -6, the work situation is much improved. In these situations (Shani-Thula, Makara, Kumbha, or Vrishabha ) the general effect = strong discipline and structure in professional service; regular working hours; profitable relationship to medicine, money-lenders, and police. Access to loans (such as home mortgage, business, and automobile loans) is easy.
By limiting and reducing the effects of conflict and punishment, Shani's natural habit of restricting and delaying things becomes quite beneficial in Bhava -6.
Shani disallows most of the nasty effects of Bhava -6. the native 's interaction with criminals, police, doctors, poisons, drugs, prostitutes, exploitation, pollution, low people, animals, and servantsis controlled by rules and regulations which prevent undue mixing and mingling. Shani in Bhava -6 is committed to maintaining social inequality through rigid hierarchies. Shani is a law-enforcer and never a law-breaker.
Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 may have karmicly obligatory contact with social conflict in the form dictated by Shani's rashi and its lord. However Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 contact must be law-abiding regardless how extreme might be the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy situation that is generating social conflict.
If Shani is well disposed, the nature of one's service is also highly professionalized .
Shani in Bhava -6 prevents the taking of usurious loans. Shani is diligent in repayment. Thus indebtedness is strictly limited . the native distrusts physicians and resists the expense of medical care. Throughout the lifetime, one takes few or no drugs, either recreational or therapeutic. (Yet one may be a purveyor of pleasure-enhancing or pain-relieving drugs to others, especially when Shani occupies a rashi of Zukra.)
Shani in Bhava -6 provides a general karma of disinterested acceptance of the lower classes, along with attraction to rigid social hierarchies and karmic obligation to serve the"underdog".
Thus there is lifetime interaction with jealous, greedy, immature, sick, selfish, and ignorant people (the lower classes). Yet, despite one's immersion into the world of chronic imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, the native with all-work/no-play Shani in Bhava -6 will not be seduced into a immoral lifestyle.
Alienation or harsh discipline toward servants, underlings, domestic animals
Shani is happier in the swabhava of Shani's friends : Budha and Zukra.
All things connected to Shani in a favorable rashi will improve slowly, with maturity and commitment to the cultural education process.
Early results are delayed, but later results are favored.
Shani-Meza, Simha, and Vrizchika is gripped by survival fear and extremely defensive. However, due to the auspice of "a challenging planet in a challenging amsha giving good results ", when Shani occupies Bhava -6, the fears belong not to the Selfless Servant but rather to those one serves.
In a favorable rashi, Shani-drive repetition and practice in the basic disciplined expression of service to persons who are impoverished, ignorant, toxic, jealous, and diseased will produce excellent results in Bhava -6.
Need for Routine in the Workplace
Wherever Shani goes in the Jyotisha nativity, the need for routine will follow. Shani in Bhava -6 has a deep need for routine and predictable process in the workplace.
Native with Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 will typically accept a moderate amount of overwork and exploitation in service. These natives have little interest in challenging the established order in the ranks of service ministry or indeed in the social-class system as a whole. They are service-oriented professionally, and they respect - in deed, they require - strictly regulared hierarchies of power.
Conflict in the workplace is addressed through application of rules of law and work-culture convention.
Although the native will accept relocation of workplace or assignment of changes duties from a superior, one will not voluntarily leave the place of employment. This loyal employee will leave the workplace routine only under extreme duress.
A regular time-and-production routine is required, regardless of the nature of the workplace.
If Shani's rashi is favorable , the native 's dignity in dealing with social conflict, poverty, pollution, ignorance, and disease will meet society's need for well-trained conflict managers. As always it is important to understand that all professions rooted in Bhava -6 are oriented to conflict *management* - not to conflict *resolution*.
Eradication of poverty, slavery, exploitation and human misery, through creative, divinely inspired intelligent solutions to the basic human problems, is governed by Bhava -5 (12th-from-6th, loss of conflict, loss-of-loss-of-agreement).
A well-disposed Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6 provides professional, skilled workers in hierarchical, routine-driven organizations, corporations, institutions concerned with the conflict management.
Exempli gratia, the organizations which hire experts in the social problems that are addressed by workers military, police, health care, social work, drugs, loan-making, jails, crime, and all the other miseries of Bhava -6. Law firms, police departments, health management organizations, government bureaus of health and social welfare, to name a few.
the native gives structured, high-craft support to the group initiative toward expressions of service, but the native 's actions are conformed to the group will. If Shani has a favorable relationship to Zukra, especially strong service contribution to organizations concerned with social and personal disagreements in the areas of poverty, toxicity, and debt.
Shani's job is to inculcate personal responsibility (without guilt) and neutral acceptance of the karmic process.
Domains occupied or aspected by Shani become the primary agents of of Taskmaster Shani's mission: to convert ignorant error into calm wisdom .
Shani will do"whatever it takes " to command the native 's attention . Shani will recall the native over and over to a central difficulty, a repeating failure, or an insurmountable obstacle. Matters of the houses owned or aspected by Shani will mechanically - from the unconscious mind - produce, unfair, disappointing, and deprived results.
Shani's impact on life experience is painful and frustrating but, in the end, extremely beneficial. The pain can be reduced dramatically through neutral awareness and acceptance of the role one plays in creating one's own destiny.
The conscious human has less control over the flow of events, and more control over how one reacts to those events. Once the native has established a pattern of calm and non-judgmental reaction to the flow of events, Shani's job is done - and the pain stops! (The events continue but they just roll past...)
The faster one can achieve neutral awareness of one's own negative expectations, the faster one can eliminate the pain.
Unfortunately for the slow learner, Shani will give all the"time" necessary to repeat the lesson . For those of us who live a bit behind the curve of total wisdom, it is valuable to be aware of the most acute effects of Shani.
With forewarning , one can address these"scheduled" negativities, as they arise, with consciousness. One can meet each well-timed disappointment with a deeper commitment to forgiveness , acknowledgement and release.
Impact of Parashari drishti emitting from Professor Shani teaching in classroom-6
Shani's negative, pessimistic, fearful, scarcity-oriented, survival-driven, and faith-lacking Parashari drishti from Bhava-6 reaches bhava 8-12-3.
o increase the chances of happiness in this life, one born with Shani in Bhava -6 must remain particularly *vigilant* against the onslaught of Shani's legacy of negative expectations upon the realms of
However Shani's pressure toward conformity with"lowest common denominator" standards is beneficial for sustaining one's public dignity in matters of workplace regulations.
Strong, favorable graha in domains 3, 8 and 12 will significantly override the prognosis for excessive sobriety in team interaction (3) and blocked access to intuitive knowledge (8 and 12). Yet the presence of Shani's drishti will be subtly noticeable. E.g., total blockage may turn to delay, or material handicap may manifest as psychological resistance - but Shani's karmic drishti will never be completely erased.
In the case of Shani in Bhava -6, the"lowest common denominator" is the domestic animal, the slave, or the person with no rights or entitlements except perhaps the right to breathe.
Shani's conformance to the lowest common denominator in Ari Bhava provides a highly effective neutral awareness of the plight of the toxic, the injured, the victim, as well as the poisoner, the injurer, and the criminal.
When Shani occupies Bhava -6, the native must be alert to the relationship between:
In other words, the"seed" houses will appear to be running more slowly because the"fruits " houses are impacted.
Fruits of Bhava -5 = Bhava -3:
Fruits of Bhava-6 = Bhava-4
Ari-sthana appears to get slowed down or retarded when Professor Shani enters 6 and establishes His classroom here.
It is more difficult to get fast fruits from Bhava-6 () when Bhava -8 receives the drishti of Shani
The results of leadership, executive decisions, accepting responsibility for guiding organizations (10) are delayed. Bhava -10 projects its wishes and goals (11th-from) upon Bhava -8. Bhava -8 contains many Oppressive, forced conformity experiences for the native due to the existing Shani drishti.
Randhra-bhava's program to develop intuitive, privileged, confidential information will show the effect of reduced expectations . the native often chooses a less transformative path in the attempt to avoid catastrophic changes, based on one's minimal expectations for success of surgeries or therapeutic openings of hidden knowledge.
Bhava -8 is constrained by Shani drishti. Therefore the native expects the fruits of Bhava -10 (public service, leadership, career) to be barren ,"not possible" or"going nowhere".
Shani's impact on Zukra's swabhava is however not so difficult to manage.
Careful risk management o the extent of severe risk aversion give comfortable and pleasing results in marriage And core social exchange relationships. Excellent for career longevity. Supports the native in staying with the same spouse, attorney, physician, and belief system for the duration of a lifetime.
Fruits of Bhava -2 = Bhava -12:
A lifetime of limited access to intuition and imagination, and a static family culture based on material performance, is a typical and non-controversial path. Shani blocks sudden, forced changes; wild bursts of imaginative inspiration; and mental excess. These Shani blocks are basically beneficial for living a conventional, materialistic, work-defined life.
Seed and fruit
Shani in Bhava -6 contains the belief that the"seed" of permanent resolution to social conflict is not viable.
Therefore in one's total thinking about intuitive healing (8), knowledge through dreams and reflections (12) and collaborative thought process (3), these negative expectations will limit one's faith in setting higher goals.
As usual, a strong graha occupying Bhava -3, 8, or 12 can mitigate Shani's drishti, perhaps reducing the strength of the limitations from blockage to resistance, or changing severe handicap to mere inconvenience.
In any case, Shani's 10th drishti onto Bhava -3 is not so strong as Shani's 3rd drishti onto Bhava -8.
Obligatory Karma (Shanaicharya) is completed at the moment when the ignorance of compulsive repeating reaction is transformed into the wisdom of conscious reaction management.
Once the compulsive reaction mechanism appears in the field of awareness, and the intent to manage the reaction = responsibility without guilt = established, the karmic cycle is effectively complete.
"The light of the body is the eye:
therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light;
but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness."
