  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra p 84

BPL commentary: For Swati natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

Guided by the intelligences of Arcturus

"... a slow and deliberative character,

  • almost ponderous in thought and action

  • yet intelligent and logical

While he may be slower at arriving at conclusions than most people,

  • on final analysis his reasoning is sound

  • and his conclusion more accurate than others who may be more brilliant.

He is very religious, somewhat orthodox,

  • and his environment permitting will attend church regularly

  • or at any rate participate in some religious activity.

Many priests or ministers are found to have Swati on the Rising Point."

Shani rules putrabhava-5 children

A tremendous amount of energy occupies his bhava-5 of kingship and royal performance, with the majority force of Mangala and Surya militating toward bright hot personal radiance rather than the wetter, cooler energies needed to generate biological children.

However vidyapathi-5 Shani occupies 9 * Shani enjoying parivartamsha with dharmesha-9 Budha-5, showing the opening for one highly articulate and social responsible child. He produced one son in 1946, during Budha-Zukra period * Zukra-lagnesha.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Flesh-Death in Rahu + bandesha-4 Shani period = "end of things "

52nd Dai of the Dawoodi Bohra, Mohammed Burhanuddin, 1930's

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure, all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
