BPL commentary: For Shata-taraka natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.
"A quiet and unassuming person,
thoughtful and meditative
Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.
Prefers solitude to the company of others.
Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."
A light eater and moderate in most things."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Newton's father died before the infant Newton was born
Newton suffered a toxically conflicted relationship with his mother's second husband, whom Newton despised. 8th-from-Surya = bhava-6 conflict, and the ruler of 6 is the wild Arudra Chandra. Newton famously threatened to burn the family home with his mother and her husband in it.
impulsive Arudra Chandra accepts the expansive drishti of Brihaspati
Typically for the Kumbha radical nativity, Chandra rules 6 and the relationship with the mother is fraught with dissatisfaction. Yet Chandra in classroom-5 indicates a mother who is unusually intelligent and politically aware. Newton's mother was clearly supportive enough to enable his education and later scientific career (she indeed politicked with relatives to get him admitted for higher schooling) and he expressed devotion to her throughout his life.
The mother's second husband (if any) is indicated via 2nd-from-Chandra and Newton's hatred for his step-father is well documented.
Rogesha Chandra-5 suggests a disinclination toward children, and a deep emotional conflict typically jealousy regarding matters of creativity, entitlement, authorship, genius, and centrality.
Newton was notorious for mood-swings and emotional insecurity. He was known for a classic pattern of reacting to logical criticism of his academic work with fits of rage
DDespite his scientific genius, Newton was an irascible fellow
Isaac Newton was prone toward episodic paranoia and rage. He was particularly violent toward any suggestion that he might collegially share credit with other scientists who were clearly collaborating on the same topics and discussions, and aggressively handled any suggestions of plagiarism with personally vindictive attacks.
6th-from-Chandra = bhava-10 Vrizchika with Mangala-Meza-3 * Mulatrikona ffurthermore in 6th-from-10th, suggesting that matters of public reputation and respect were especially contentious and even vicious for him.
IIn his later-life tenure as president of the Royal Society (60's and 70's), Newton was viewed as controlling to the point of tyranny, dominating the work of others and manipulating the decisions regarding who and what would be published
Shani-yuti-Ketu in the 10th from Chandra suggests a slow and irregular (Ketu) ascent to positions of public responsibility. Once the position is obtained, it is generally retained. Newton became Master of the Mint in 1699 * his age 56 during the Rahu-Return. Shani would seem afflicted by Ketu but importantly the D-9 features Shani-yuti-Rahu
Although the path to fruition was marked by delay and contention, Newton was able eventually to combine a splendid career in theoretical science with a highly profitable government contract as Master of the Mint. Newton's Shani-Meena-2 (treasury, the mint) enjoyed a highly empowering parivartamsha yoga with Guru-Kumbha-1 (personality identity).
Remarkably for such a professionally productive scientist, he also had substantial economic profits due to dhanakaraka dhanapati-2 + Vriddhipathi-11 Guru-1 parivartamsha lagnesha Shani. He gave generously to charities during his later years, and he died a monied man.
Newton had a fragmented family (Ketu). His father died before Newton was born. His mother remarried several times, and Newton was a violent teenager. Although he remained tolerant if not devoted toward his mother (a challenge given Chandra-Rogesha) he overtly hated his stepfathers and received no measurable financial support from his family.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Newton lived a long life due to Rahu-8 and Shani drishti to 8 .
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Shani-yuti-Ketu afflicts the family of origin, lineage knowledge, contained treasury, speech
