Each individual will experience the tension between oppressive social control and individual freedom of movement, in a different way. The Jyotisha relationship between Shani and Mangala reveals how much and what kind of burdens, duties and obligations the native has chosen to endure in this lifetime versus what quantity and quality of physical, sexual, and commercial freedom the native might be permitted.


When Shani and Mangala enter a harmonious relationship (such as parivartamsha yoga ),a good result can potentially manifest via conscious harnessing of personal energies by voluntary discipline.

The default outcome is by far more common. Even so, this native benefits from the march of Time.

the native foregoes both short-term freedom and short-term security, preferring the longer-term benefits of conscious instinct-regulation. True freedom and true security are both achieved, although personal sacrifice of time and energy on the physical level are required, and there should be strong support in domains 1, 8, 10, and 11 (body, sacrifice-transformation, respect, and goals).

Parivartamsha yoga for Shani and Kuja occurs only in 4 cases:

  1. Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Makara

  2. Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Kumbha

  3. Shani = Vrizchika / Kuja = Makara

  4. Shani = Vrizchika / Kuja = Kumbha


When Shani and Mangala directly conflict (as in mutual aspect) the battle between primitive human selfishness and constraining systems of social conformity make the native both aggressive and oppressed.

The result may be perpetual anxiety , which peaks during periods of Shani and Mangala.

The fact that these troublesome mutual aspects are quite commonplace tells us something about human beings, who tend to run a goodly amount of aggression and oppression, in their psychic space.

Be on the lookout for these difficult combinations which suggest either anxious pushing (Mars overpowers Shani)or anxious resistance to the perceived Mars invasion via excessive oppression or repression (Shani overwhelms Mars):

  1. Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Thula

  2. Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Makara

  3. Shani = Vrishabha / Kuja = Vrischika

  4. Shani = Vrishabha / Kuja = Kumbha

  5. Shani = Mithuna / Kuja = Dhanau

  6. Shani = Mithuna / Kuja = Meena

  7. Shani = Karka / Kuja = Markara

  8. Shani = Karka / Kuja = Mesha

  9. Shani = Simha / Kuja = Kumbha

  10. Shani = Simha / Kuja = Vrishabha

  11. Shani = Kanya / Kuja = Meena

  12. Shani = Kanya / Kuja = Mithuna

  13. Shani = Thula / Kuja = Mesha

  14. Shani = Thula / Kuja = Karka

  15. Shani = Vrizchika / Kuja = Vrishabha

  16. Shani = Vrizchika / Kuja = Simha

  17. Shani = Dhanau / Kuja = Mithuna

  18. Shani = Dhanau / Kuja = Kanya

  19. Shani = Makara / Kuja = Karkata

  20. Shani = Makara / Kuja = Thula

  21. Shani = Kumbha / Kuja = Simha

  22. Shani = Kumbha / Kuja = Vrischika

  23. Shani = Meena / Kuja = Kanya

  24. Shani = Meena / Kuja = Dhanushya


Let us walk through the angular relationships of Shani and Kuja to see how the balance between safety and movement, order and competition, lawful restriction and personal instinct, might operate in the life of an individual being, from the rashi point of view.

Each of these yoga will develop a more complex character when set in the context of different janma-lagna and Chandra-lagna. These are just the skeleton effects.

  1. Shani - Mesha + Mangala

  2. Shani- Vrishabha + Mangala

  3. Shani- Mithuna + Mangala

  4. Shani - Karkata + Mangala

  5. Shani- Simha + Mangala

  6. Shani - Kanya + Mangala

  7. Shani - Thula + Mangala

  8. Shani - Vrizchika + Mangala
  9. Shani - Dhanau + Mangala

Whenever sober-structural Shanaicarya has to share a residence with muscular-moving Professor Mangala or with risky-rogue Rahu or dispersing-disinterested Ketu, the agenda of the teachings of Professor Shani are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons .

New Birth vs. Old Order

Shani-yuti-Mangala is characterized by a push-pull mechanism that is similar to a mother trying to give birth while the umbilical cord is wrapped around the baby's neck.

  • Mangala with all of His forward-driving force is trying to be born and start new life.
  • Shani with all of His systematic rigidity is trying to prevent that new birth from happening so that the Old Order can be preserved.

In a husbandly nativity, Zukra-yuti-Shani suggest the blessings of a wife (likely wives) with pragmatic business sense in the arts industry, cooperative and well-structured teamwork, and positive commercial development through good old fashioned planning and sustained hard work. The couple share an aesthetic and materialistic worldview.

Shani-yuti-Mangala in bhava-2 second-marriage can create a push-me-pull-you tension in the second marriage prospects. Depending on Zukra characteristics, a second legal union may be destroyed (Kuja) or delayed (Shani) or both.

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson was widowed age 62, only weeks before beginning his job as POTUS-07. He would have benefitted personally and professionally from taking a second life-partner, but seemed to have been blocked in realizing that potential. As a Euro-American slave owner, he had access to hundreds of silent, nameless African women slaves, and it is likely that the second and third wives represented by his Zukra-yuti-Budha and Zukra-yuti-Surya were slaves who could not in any case be formally married.

Work, work, and more work - usually involving physical effort Kuja) and social pressure (Shani).

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 Ginger Rogers. In the USA during the 1930's and 1940's, Ginger Rogers was heralded as a national icon of the new social role "single working girl". Mangala-Shani yuti Rahu made her "working" identity also a taboo-breaker.

Drishti:

When Professor Mangala occupies the rashi opposite to Shani's rashi, Mangala casts 100% graha drishti upon Shani,

This yoga generally generates a frustrating, resistance-motivating experience for Shani, who does not wish His frozen, strict, anti-movement domain to be invaded by aggressive, competitive, fiercely competitive, MOVING Mangala .

The result of Mangala 's drishti upon Shani is generally less benevolent.

  • When Shani occupies the rashi which is either 4th-from-Mangala or 11th-from-Mangala, Shani casts 100% drishti upon Mangala

Shani's drishti is a relatively neutral experience for Mangala, who is not intimidated by Shani but rather somewhat annoyed. Mangala is compared to Shani much more energetic dynamic and if necessary warlike. Shani is intimidated by Mangala however Mangala is not afraid of Shani.

The result of Shani's drishti upon Professor Kuja is frustration with numerous impediments and obstacles.

One may perceive regular * but ultimately quite surmountable * blockage by Shani-indicated agencies as protocols of large corporations, rules and policies of government bureaucracies, rigidly judgmental or punitive systems, and fearful elderly persons.

Shani the Resistor and Mangala the Challenger have two different friendship relationships

Shani views Kuja as His (threatening, explosive) direct enemy. Shani is afraid of Kuja.

Kuja views Shani as a (boring, old, ossified) neutral. Kuja is not afraid of Shani.

BPL Notes on the mutual drishti of Shani-into-Mangala and Mangala-into-Shani Shri Raman's observations (below) are summative. Bhava location is also important for prediction of expected outcomes.

Shani flourishes in bhava 7-10-11.

Mangala prospers in bhava 1-10-8.

Therefore Shani-10 receiving drishti from Mangala-7 is energized in His leadership responsibilities and may be a dynamic executive however one will often feel pestered by the impatient younger men and one may under dire transits actually remember feeling hunted by predators (from other lifetimes). However as a general rule, the Mangala drishti into karmasthana-10 benefits the career, and Shani-10 indicates longevity in bureaucratic roles.

  • Mughal Emperor 1592-1666 Shah Jahan * Kuja-7-Meena casts drishti into Shani-yuti-Rahu-Mithunaya-10. Shah Jahan was a great leader who left a tremendous legacy. Yet as an Empire-building warrior, he was naturally accustomed to a lifetime pattern of being hunted by his worthy opponents, both in battle and in the elegant court. In old age (Shani) some predatory younger men (his own sons) did indeed overwhelm him. Shani is made much more resilient against Mangala's incursions via Shani's proximity to ambitious Rahu-Mithunaya a clever trickster of tactical communications and signaling.

Mangala-1 is a competitive agent aiming for championship in the field, but He generates a significant Kuja Dosha for marriage purposes. If Mangala-1 suffers mutual drishti with Shani-4, one may realize the need for hard work and attention to safety in the home.

Mangala can be a troublemaker for Kanya nativities, and somewhat for Mithunaya radical lagna as well.

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts * Dhanushya-Kuja-5 in mutual drishti with Shani-Meena-8. The combination of Shani-8 and Mangala drishti into 8 suggests a highly extended longevity, inter alia.

QUOTATION from:

~~ B.V. Raman, A Catechism of Astrology . p. 30:


"Q. 37

What is the effect of the mutual aspect of the two great malefics Saturn and Mars?

Do they indicateviolence?

Does it make any difference if Saturn is the lord of 1?"

"Ans. No such general rule can be given. It depends on the position and ownership of the aspecting planets.

Saravali ascribes the following results:

  1. When Saturn occupies Aries or Scorpio and is aspected by Mars, the native will injure innocent animals, will be a leader of goondas (niffians), will be addicted to drink and women but he will also be famous (Khyatha).

  2. When Saturn occupies Taurus or Libra aspected by Mars, the native will be fond of warlike stories and will cowardly in the battlefield, and will be a braggart.

  3. When Saturn occupies Gemini or Virgo and is aspected by Mars, he will be obstinate, will be awkward in form and appearance, will be attacked by fits , and will carry others' burden."

  4. When Saturn occupies Cancer and is aspected by Mars, he will become rich through royal or divine favor, will be maimed in physique, will have wealth, servants and ornaments and will be fond of bad relations and women.

  5. When Saturn occupies Leo and is aspected by Mars, he will be an itinerant and ungrateful, will be thievish , will frequent hilly places or forest or forts, will be without wife or children.

  6. When Saturn occupies Sagittarius or Pisces, and is aspected by Mars, he will be attacked by severe gout, will be despised by people , will live in foreign countries, and will be miserly and poor.

  7. When Saturn occupies Capricorn or Aquarius, and is aspected by Mars, he will be warlike , will be famous and adventurous and will be a leader of men.


  1. Similarly when Mars occupies Aries or Scorpio and Saturn aspects [Mars] same, he will be weak, will be devoid of followers or relations, will marry another wife .

  2. When Mars occupies Taurus or Libra and Saturn aspects same, he will be happy, famous, rich, learned , and will be a leader of men.

  3. When Mars occupies Gemini or Virgo and is aspected by Saturn, he will be an agriculturist , employed in mining, will be an itinerant, will be an occupant of hilly places and forts, will be poor, dirty and miserable .

  4. When Mars occupies Cancer and is aspected by Saturn, he will be a navigator , poor, beautiful, and engaged in princely trades .

  5. When Mars occupies Leo and is aspected by Saturn, he will be prematurely old , poor, will be living in others' houses , and will be unhappy.

  6. When Mars occupies Sagittarius or Pisces and is aspected by Saturn, he will be ugly, warlike, sinful, a traveller, and bereft of financial wealth , health, and One's Dharma.

  7. When Mars occupies Capricorn or Aquarius and aspected by Saturn, he will become a king, wealthy, but despised by women; will have many children, will be warlike and learned but unhappy. "

BPHS, Ch. 246, Shloka 1

"Should

  1. Mars and Saturn exchange their rashi or Navamsha,

  2. be in fateful degrees (of those Rashi occupied by them),

  3. and are placed in Kendra (from Lagna),

the native 's death will be through sovereign wrath

or by being impaled by a spear or some such killing weapons."

of Shani-yuti-Kuja in any rashi,

"Infamous acts.

Deceptive and suffer from mental anguish.

  • Contentious but not intelligent.

You will, however, be a connoisseur of music and drama.

  • Irreligious, quarrelsome, and of a thievish mentality.

Clever in metallurgy

  • and in creating an atmosphere which, though unreal,
  • will have a semblance of reality (as is done with silver and gold-plated articles or by jugglers or in circus shows).

You may suffer from diseases arising out of bile and wind, and also suffers mentally or physically from a chronic disease.

May be expert in jugglery, deceit, be a liar, a thief and unhappy, and may be troubled by attacks or poisons."

Instinctive Competitive Animal Movement (Angarika)

vs.

Principled Social Order Governance (Shani)

One of the permanent core dynamics in human life is the eternal tension between individual freedom of movement (Mangala) and the rule of law that guarantees basic protections of life, liberty, and property (Shani).

  • Western social philosophy has been focused on the polarities of this dynamic relationship since Plato.

  • Kant, Hegel, and Marx all have opinions about it.

  • The British political philosophical tradition of Hobbes, Burke, and Mill explores this perpetual tension in great detail.

Shani is much more threatened by Aggressive and Active Angarika than Kuja by Slow and Sober Shani.

Shani is intimidated by battering Kuja. However, Mangala is merely annoyed by Shani's obstructionism and impedance.

  • The Jyotisha planetary-friendship rules indicate a basic reality of human life.

  • A physically strong person can override the boundaries of social law and custom rather easily. Strong-willed, dynamically energized criminals or rebellious individuals who have little regard for Law can pose serious threats to social stability.

  • Martian individuals themselves are not overly impressed by the rule of law and order, and tend not to pay much attention to social authority. Thus Shani's hierarchical control laws are not threatening enough for Kuja to consider Shani a serious enemy. But Shani is quite scared of Angaraka!

Friends and Enemies of Shani = Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Law?

  • In addition to Mangala, Shani's other Enemies are those who transcend social law by choosing the path less traveled: the spiritual truth-seekers = rational Sun and intuitive-perceptive Moon.

  • Shani's social stability agenda is however nicely supported by His friends = the pleasure-seekers Zukra and Budha, who strive not for truth but rather sensuality and mental distraction.

  • Shani = neutral toward the all-accepting wise Guru.

The Dalai Lama Gets Angry


14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . (2003).

The Compassionate Life

" Despite being a monk and a supposed practitioner of the Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life , I myself still occasionally become irritated and angry and, as a result, use harsh words toward others.

Then, a few moments later when the anger has subsided, I feel embarrassed; the negative words are already spoken, and there is truly no way to take them back.

Although the words themselves are uttered and the sound of the voice has ceased to exist, their impact lives on.

Hence, the only thing I can do is to go to the person and apologize.

But in the meantime, I may feel quite shy and embarrassed.

This shows that even a short instance of anger and irritation creates a great amount of discomfort and disturbance to the one who gets angry, not to mention the harm caused to the person who is the target of that anger.

So in reality, these negative states of mind obscure our intelligence and good judgment and thereby case great damage."

A Certain Amount of Hardship on the Path


quotation from ~~ 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . (2005).

Essence of the Heart Sutra: The Dalai Lama's Heart of Wisdom Teachings.

Thupten Jinpa (Trans. and Ed.). Wisdom Publications.

"The Buddha's life exemplifies a very important principle -- a certain amount of hardship is necessary in one's spiritual pursuit.

We can also see this principle at work in the lives of other great religious teachers, such as Jesus Christ or the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

Furthermore, I think that the followers of these teachers, if they wish to attain the highest spiritual realizations within their tradition, must themselves undergo a process of hardship , which they endure through dedicated perseverance.

There is sometimes the tendency among the followers of the Buddha to imagine, perhaps only in the back of their minds, that"Although the Buddha went through all of those hardships to attain enlightenment they aren't really necessary for me. Surely, I can attain enlightenment without giving up life's comforts."

Perhaps such people imagine that, because they are somehow more fortunate than the Buddha, they can attain the same spiritual state as he did without any particular hardships or renunciation. This is, I think, mistaken.

...While Buddhism has adapted to the culture of each new civilization it has encountered, it nonetheless retains its emphasis on morality and discipline as essential for spiritual maturation .

If we ourselves want the attainments described by the Buddha-- The deep concentration and the penetrating insights -- then we too must endure some amount of hardship and observe ethical behavior."
