Many Mixers * Much Exotic Belief

Brihaspati is a multiplier, producing many.

Rahu represents exotic agents from beyond the conventional boundaries of the social order. Rahu-figures appear from other realities. They are fascinating but unusual. They do not conform to the order. They churn the placid waters of Chandra's gentle life rhythms. Seeking privilege and prestige, they mix-and-mottle the hierarchical order.


Vimshottari Dasha effects

Rahu Mahadasha continues seamlessly into the Guru Mahadasha, creating a continuous Rahu-Guru era lasting 34 years. Those born with Chandra in Bharani, Purva-phalguni, Purva-azadha, Kri-ttika, Uttara-phalguni, or Uttara-azadha will experience this 34-year super-mahadasha during midlife. Effects of the umbrella 34-year period depend primarily on Guru's bhava-rulerships but also upon Rahu's bhava of residence.


Doctrinal or Theoretical Over-reaching * Mixing and Mottling of the Paradigm of Belief

Amplification of ambition to obtain entitlements (Rahu) of Guru = teacher, preacher, professor, pontifical, paternalistic, child-developing, pandita, global, charitable, humanistic, worldwide entitlements

Craving for inclusiveness, humanistic expansion, globalization

  • may become overinflated with craving (Rahu) for worldwide (Guru) extension

engagement with children, however well-intentioned, can become over-optimistic or over-expanded

  • while most parents are praised for adopting orphans, Material Girl 1958- Madonna was widely criticized for adopting an abandoned African son

  • similarly, although he was exonerated (rogesha-6 in 8 Harsha Yoga) and despite his history of broad philanthropy on behalf of ill children, Thriller 1958-2009 Michael J. Jackson was indicted on charges of criminal misbehavior with children

Over-optimism in global affairs

Adventure and Exploration of Religious Beliefs and Principled Moral Teachings

Taboo behaviors in production and acquisition of Children

As always, outcome depends on many other factors.

  • In the case of Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling uttama-Rahu-5 yuti 12-3 ruler Guru-Vrizabha . The dual-expander multiplies via bhava 9-11-1 including a drishti upon Makara radical lagna and upon Chandra-Kanya-9. Famed for critical investigative writing. This magnification + expansion yoga vastly increases the reach of her literary genius.

However, with Guru-yuti-Rahu, circumstances of the birth of the first child are likely to be rule-breaking in some way, or culturally unusual. (Also Mangala-5 generated her first pregnancy as miscarriage.)

Culturally exotic parenting behaviors

first child may be born in a foreign land

  • Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling * a British citizen; her eldest child was born in Portugal.

Amplification (Rahu) of the Scope of Charities (Guru)

  • Thriller 1958-2009 Michael Jackson yuti Rahu * charitable philanthropies to benefit world children; obtainment of children by artificially inseminated or surrogate birth

Risks (Rahu) and break taboos (Rahu) in order to develop broad global perspectives, and serve as a teacher-preacher figure (Guru).

  • Dittoheads 1951- radio polemic Rush Limbaugh is equally famous for promoting taboo beliefs, particularly those which challenge dominant social ideologies Guru-Kumbha. He is however able to attract mass followings (Kumbha) Yuti Chandra = homeland, settlers, habitual rhythmic root-culture.

  • POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson was a great philosophical humanist (Meena) . Wilson remains the only POTUS to have earned a Ph.D. Although ultimately defeated by a parochial, isolationist Congress, Wilson passionately espoused USA partnership in the worldwide League of Nations.(Guru dharmesha) His visionary universalist Guru-Meena ideas earned him a Nobel Prize, even though the League of Nations died.

  • Material Girl 1958- Madonna 's exotic child-generating exploits are well known. The first child out of wedlock with her other-caste partner, the second child also born before marriage, and additional adopted of a dramatically different racial-cultural profile. Further, she is famously and generously involved with charitable activities on behalf of orphanages, school-building, and children's health in AIDS-afflicted central Africa. Yet her actions are not popular with Human Rights activists; she is broadly seen as "interfering". Typical of Rahu-yuti-Guru, her religious beliefs are non-mainstream ("Kabbalah Center"). This irregular (Rahu) congregation has drawn both fascination and criticism for its unorthodox teachings and cult-like behaviors.

Guru-yuti-Rahu occupies kalpasthana-1 * both cast drishti upon domains 5-7-9

Often a remarkable performance-oriented personality with a unique appearance that is fascinating but not typical, not a conventional beauty yet mesmerizing. Excellent placement for entertainment professions. Several children. If there are graha in 5-7-9, these graha then receive the double-drishti and more expansion-amplification proceeds.

Guru-yuti-Rahu occupy rogasthana-6 * both cast drishti upon 10-12-2 amplifying the artha qualities of 2, 6, and 10. one can gain significant artha-wealth from the typical conflicted narratives of 6 such as military, medicine, service ministries, litigation, accusation, criminals and crimes, pollution, exploitation, slavery, and all forms of injustice.

Guru-yuti-Rahu-6 is a very special combination that can yield opportunities to flourish in environments characterized by deeply embedded racial-tribal, medical, criminal, or litigious conflict. The native may have a remarkable capacity (Guru) to handle criminal injustice, broken trust, and interpersonal deceit in ongoing, persistently hostile surroundings.

Drishti to 10-12-2 amplifies and expands leadership roles (10), work in distant, imaginative, or cloistered operations (12) and banking-treasuries + conservation of resources (2). If there are graha in 10-12-2, these graha then receive the double-drishti and more expansion-amplification proceeds.

  • POTUS-12 California Statehood 1784-1850 Zachary Taylor Taylor had a highly successful military (6) career supporting the European settlers' quest to drive the Native American tribes off their ancestral lands. He formed complex relationships with the exotic (to the Euro) groups (Kumbha) that his US army regiments were trying to destroy-or-enslave, and he was accused of unfair tactics by both sides. * Guru-8 parivartamsha Shani-8 strengthened his sudden-transformational capabilities in the war-zone log forts where he lived and fought for decades.


Guru-yuti-Rahu occupy randhrasthana-8 * both cast drishti upon 12-2-4. If there are graha in 12-2-4, these graha then receive the double-drishti and more expansion-amplification proceeds.

The keynote is secrecy. Tremendous capacity to handle explosive situations. Very dangerous; very tantric.


Guru-yuti-Rahu occupy dharmasthana-9 * the pairing casts drishti upon 1-3-5.

May be a remarkable communicator of doctrinal, philosophical, or theoretical information. Uses unconventional beliefs, or unconventional renderings of familiar beliefs. If there are graha in 1-3-5, these graha then receive the double-drishti and more expansion-amplification proceeds.

Q:

Dear Barbara,

... Presume that one has both Jupiter (Guru) and Rahu in the sign of Taurus. What general conclusion could one draw from this arrangement? I'm presuming that in Jyotisha or traditional Vedic astrology, two planets (Graha) are automatically in conjunction when they occupy the same sign or house. (Concerning the house location of those two bodies, I'm not quite sure.) Thank you for any consideration that you may give to this question.

A:

Although Jyotisha graha are pretty tightly interlinked with each other, and generally it's misleading to judge graha without knowing all of their drishti, bhava, characteristics of varga placements, et-cetera... a few general conclusions may be drawn about this pair of Guru-yuti-Rahu-Vrizabha.

  • when Guru-yuti-Rahu share a rashi in the radical nativity, they will also share a bhava. However, in the "bhava chart" they might be in adjacent houses based on their degree positions.

  • Guru-yuti-Rahu shares a rashi thus their combined Parashari drishti will have a very strong influence on four bhava = 1/3/ of the total real estate of the chart. The Guru-yuti-Rahu pair can gain a disproportionate influence because both Guru and Rahu cast 5-7-9 drishti.

  • Professor Rahu always amplifies His ruler, which is Vrishabha is Zukra. Professor Rahu will also amplify the results of His co-tenants, which in this nativity include Brihaspati. Rahu will amplify Guru and Guru will further expand (in terms of numbers and area) the range of Rahu. Guru is by nature the graha of wisdom and abundance, but in Vrishabha which is enemy-territory for Guru there is often too much expansion of the ways of Shri Bhrigu "the slippery slope".

Concluding this brief and partial assessment of a single Guru-yuti-Rahu behavior complex in Vrishabha, it could be said that the outcome of the Guru-yuti-Rahu pair depends first and foremost upon the characteristics of Professor Bright Bhrigu.

  • Whilst treasuries (Zukra) and material abundance (Guru) are increased, the opportunity (Rahu) for over-valuation of material-sensual pleasures and hoarding is also increased. The native would face a task of self-management to ensure that one is making wise use of the incarnation as a classroom for gaining knowledge (Guru) without wasting too much time on the repetitive pleasuring cycles.


Brihaspati's expansion can affect physical outcomes as in fertility, height or body-weight, but He can also generate expansion of market share or territory in the empire... it depends upon the specific teachings of Professor Zukra , Professor Guru, Professor Rahu that are framed and contextualized according to the bhava of residence, send-and-receive drishti, and other networking behavior between the graha in the nativity


Examples:

Both Cindy Crawford (fashion model) and Brooke Shields (model/actress) both have Guru-yuti-Rahu-Vrizabha * Taurus.

  • They are both possessed of large-frame (Guru) exotically (Rahu) attractive (Zukra) female bodies. Cindy Crawford has Guru-yuti-Rahu in bhava-7 which casts drishti direct upon her physical body (lagna). Cindy Crawford's Zukra occupies Makara, a superb placement for beautiful bone structure. Makara does not indicate sex or mystery. Makara is concerned with structure, status, profession, and hierarchies of respect (respect = "look again") based on control of material resources , cintamani * mani * money and power.

  • By comparison, Brooke Shields has Guru-yuti-Rahu + Zukra-yuti-Budha + Ravi -- all in Vrishabha, and all in bhava-8!! Guru-yuti-Rahu for Brooke Shields does not cast drishti upon the physical body lagna directly, but rather upon domains-12, 2, and 4 - with 2 being the second marriage. The psychological complexities of Brooke Shields' sensuality and personal life are well known.

Effect of Vrishabha's Ruler Zukra

For your own kundali, at this point, it is necessary to find Zukra and determine Zukra's character. Only then is it possible to say what type of behavior Rahu-Guru are engaged in. But one thing we do know: it's all about sensual experience (food, sex, money, language, music, knowledge) and its range of influence in the lifestyle is quite wide.

Effect from Chandra-lagna

Also evaluate Rahu + Guru's angle to Chandra. Chandra is the baseline for all emotional relationships (parents, children, spouse, etc.)

  • If Rahu + Guru were e.g. in 7th-from-Chandra, the first spouse might be rather full of oneself, rather generous, sensual (rashi of Zukra), and likes mingling with foreigners (Rahu) and breaking social taboo (Rahu).

  • If Rahu + Guru occupy 2nd-from-Chandra, those characteristics belong to the second marriage partner.

  • Ninth-from-Soma = father.

  • 4th-from-Soma = maternal grandmother.

  • Rahu + Guru would be a noticeable effect if the father had it, or the mother's mother.

Find the relative indicated by the angle from the Moon, and think about their character. That relative's behavior will give a good description of the Rahu-Guru profile.

Study the charts of Family members

  • One piece of advice for the beginner: when trying to figure out the effect of yoga like Guru-yuti-Rahu, don't concentrate too much on one's own personality as seen in one's own Jyotisha radix-navamsha.

  • It's hard to be objective about oneself. Trying to match one's own supposed personality traits to the moving target of a chart that one doesn't quite know how to read yet, is too vague a matching process to really start to see the patterns.

  • Rather, work with your known relatives, including spouse (s) as counted from Chandra lagna and too from radix rashi lagna. We tend to know our relatives' personalities/traits pretty well, so they can provide lots of fun data for matching.

Hope this helps toward your study of Jyotisha. It's detailed but really rewarding to start to figure it out.

All the best, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotisha
