Nine Bhukti

of the

Rahu

Mahadasha

** duration 18 years **

Modern description of the sequence of experiences structured into the nine bhukti * sub-bhuktis of the Rahu-Mahadasha, written by BP Lama


18 years of ambitiously leaping forward

* Express Elevator

* Jump-Start * doppelgangers

quotation from B.V. Raman, Autobiography of a Vedic Astrologer , p. 99-100:

"It has been my experience over nearly sixty years that Rahu as sub-lord, whether in his own bhukti or in the bhukti of other planets, would always create problems of a serious nature, affecting family and personal matters, which would Test the mental and physical stamina of an individual whatever be his social, educational, or financial attainments.

  • It is also found, contrary to general belief, that planets like the Sun and Mercury, occupying Rahu's constellations are capable of conferring happy results financially and career-wise but would create situations in domestic life, which could shatter a person's self-confidence and make him experience results which he would ordinarily never expect to happen.

There are of course exceptions which I will discuss in due course..."

Rahu mahadasha ++ Rahu bhukti

  • swabhukti

  • duration of the bhukti: 31 months

  • graha pakvata: Rahu bhuktis yield improved results after age 48 = the age of maturity for Rahu


What to Expect during a Rahu bhukti?

Evaluate the placements of Rahu.

Consider the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + the angle from the mahadasha-pathi to the bhukti-pati + incoming-outgoing graha-drishti + current gochara transits + age of the native.

Has the graha matured ?

Are the mahadashapathi and the bhuktipathi mutually friendly?

Now, consider each of these factors again with reference to Rahu's ruler .

Rahu gives the effects of His occupied bhava +++ effects of the bhava that are ruled by His lord.

RahuFireworks_rahu.png

If you are moving through the 18-year Rahu Mahadasha, then privilege-gain, social mobility, ambition, and opportunity are likely your top concerns!


Overreaching Rahu often generates an urgently ambitious motivation to shoot into the top ranked elite .

Events related to Rahu's location by bhava, or related to Rahu's ruler

Glamorous Upsets of the Social Order, Excitements, Thrills, Adventures, Unusual Opportunities, Sudden Success, Unexpected Collapse, Risk-taking, Mesmerizing Performance, Fascinations, Surprises

To know the profile of the privileged class according to Rahu's karmic aspirations, observe Rahu's bhava and Rahu's rashi.

  • Pope-264 John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla = Rahu-6 while Rahu's ruler Zukra occupied 12. Zukra's Harsha Yoga allowed him to deal diplomatically with criminals and conditions of war. However the style of risky Rahu-6 during the opening bell of His swabhukti was quite strong in its effort to re-arrange his paired organs (Thula). As a young man in Poland in 1940, Lolek was hit hard by a streetcar, and he suffered a fractured skull * Rahu-Rahu swabhukti * Rahu-6 injury

  • Sophie's Choice 1949- drama Meryl Streep * Rahu in bhava-7 ruled by Guru-5 drama in 10th-from-Chandra * In a remarkable Rahu-Rahu swabhukti that included marriage and first child * 1979 wins Oscar Award for her performance in the film Kramer vs. Kramer * Rahu-Rahu swabhukti

Rahu seeks to surreptitiously gain access to the highest places and privileges .

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy 1948 wins 11th Congressional District * Rahu-Rahu swabhukti * Rahu-5 elections

Rahu's placements by bhava and rashi - and crucially, the placement of Rahu's planetary ruler - will define what Rahu perceives as high place and desired privilege.

One may over-reach into the company of presidents, princes, and potentates - but at one's own peril.

  • Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham suffered a hate-speech scandal in 1972 during * Rahu-Budha bhukti * Budha-yuti-Rahu-7 over-reaching partnerships in communications. Overreaching Rahu the Rogue made grandiose and vicious statements in a (presumably) secret (Vrischika) conversation (Budha) with Graham's close friend POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon, the godly Rev. Graham spoke in inflammatory and threatening (Rahu) terms about ethnic minorities. Surreptitiously (Rahu) taped by paranoid Nixon, these defamatory statements damaged Graham's credibility as a Christian moral leader. Rahu in 8th-from-9th destruction-and-rebirth of priesthood. Although many did lose faith in Graham's moral character, Graham's Vimala Yoga offered a route to public forgiveness via prayer (12) He was able to salvage his ministry by moving it into distant lands during the subsequent Guru Mahadasha for Guru-12.

Professor Rahu's methods are never straightforward, and Rahu-Rahu swabhukti may be a time of excitingly dangerous adventure. Typically, Rahu produces Excitment and requires Disguise.

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva * Rahu-10. He was born into Zukra-Rahu bhukti, and a prominent Rahu-10 governments casting drishti into yogakaraka Kumbha-Zukra-2 defined his relationship to institutional finance. During Rahu swabhukti in 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, dictador Franco's sought secular government free of Church interference. To avoid government attacks, Josemaria lived incognito, abandoning his priestly robes and dressing as a commoner, even hiding in a psychiatric clinic.

Rahu-Rahu swabhukti introduces a cast of mesmerizing Rahu-agents who promise a tantalizing lifestyle that can fulfill all desires.

The agent says: "I want what you want - let's achieve a higher station in life, together!"

Rahu-Rahu = often a marriage bhukti to a spouse from a socially irregular background.

One may indeed self-elevate into the higher rank and its privileges while in company of the Rahu agent(s).

However toward the end of the entire Rahu mahadasha, during the Rahu-Mangala bhukti, it might finally become more obvious that most of the Rahu agent's claims are desire -mirroring mimicry .

(Exception: when Rahu's ruler is Mangala one might not realize the trick.) Professor Rahu is seductively disguised but His accomplishments are irregular or fraudulent.


If Rahu is involved either by placement or via the influence of His lord with either swamsha or navamsha-7 and there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity, Rahu-Rahu swabhukti being the advent of a new life era, may signal the timing of ceremonial marriage to a person of diverse social identity.


When Rahu is strong, expect leadership recognition

  • POTUS-08 Democratic Party 1782-1862 Martin Van Buren * Starting in Rahu-Rahu swabhukti, he was appointed or elected to a large number of high ranking offices in rapid succession: New York governor, USA Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Vice President for four year under POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson, and finally during Rahu-Budha bhukti POTUS-08. Budha rules 10th-navamsha ++ political Rahu in bhava-9 drishti into Surya-Zukra-Budha-5

Example of well-supported, socially mobile Rahu "goes high" during Rahu mahadasha:

  • TM 1917-2008 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi enjoyed strong drishti from Guru-5 into Dhanuzya lagna containing Surya + Rahu + Zukra; also Chandra-Magha gets Guru-5 drishti. He entered Rahu mahadasha at age 45.

  • During the preceding Mangala mahadasha, under auspice of a powerful uttama -Mangala-2 yuti Budha, young Brahmachari Mahesh had completed an itinerary of teaching throughout northern India at the request of his guru. In Mangala-Budha bhukti his preaching went international. By the onset of Rahu-Rahu he had established a global presence.
  • Brahmachari Mahesh had been rejected as candidate to inherit the role of Shankaracharya of the Jyotir Math due to not being Brahmin (despite knowledge and years of service)

  • Risk-rewarding Rahu the Caste-Boundary-Breaker returned him returning to India as a spiritual-techniques teacher instructing Brahmins and everyone else. During the 18 years of Rahu mahadasha, he became a prominent modern media figure. His iconic appearance (Rahu-1) was associated with celebrity entertainers (Rahu yuti Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra). He rose to chief executive of a yogi-business leading thousands of teaching centers in universities and global cities (Rahu Dhanuzya yuti dharmesha-9 atmakaraka Surya).
  • Rahu mahadasha continued on a high roll for the Maharishi even throughout his subsequent Guru mahadasha due to a mutual aspect between Guru-Meza and Rahu-Dhanuzya. Only the onset of Shani mahadasha his age 80 slowed the galloping pace of ambitious expansion.

Over-reaching Rahu the roguish rule-breaker empowered by bhukti and samchara transit


Energetic ambitious pulse of social-mobility arising begins with Rahu-Rahu swabhukti

  • The famed writer of Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling produced the great body of her literary work during Rahu Mahadasha, her age 24-42. Afterwards, during Guru mahadasha, she continued to produce a less voluminous although still sizeable stream of writings. Her extraordinary Guru-yuti-Rahu-uttama-9 = casts drishti into 1-3-5 * evoked during Rahu mahadasha made her one of the world's best known and most widely read contemporary authors and cinematic producers. She is also a political commentator - note Uttaraphalguni (politics, celebrity) governs the swamsha ++ critical-Kuja-Kanya-1

Marriage

Any Rahu bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity.

Rahu-timed marriage show Rahu-the-Mixmaster at work. Rahu-timed marriage suggests an impulsive but goal-oriented alliance. The partner hails from a fascinatingly different set of cultural roots, a different social class or race, or a different religion; these differences facilitate Rahu's over-reaching ascent and are perceived as irresistible and exciting.

Professor Rahu sees a mesmerizing opportunity for expediently reaching His goals, and He acts decisively without delay. There is relatively little time invested in preparation for the ceremony and there may be only partial agreement of the families. So long as the partners continue to each reach their goals through agency of the union, Rahu-timed marriages may endure as long as any other.

Rahu-Rahu swabhukti is a classic era for impassioned marriage, often under exotic circumstances which enflame the ambitions of both partners. Longevity of the marriage depends upon the marriage profile elements in both nativities, particularly the 7th-from-Chandra.

  • In 1751 (his age 48) during his Rahu-Rahu-swabhukti with Rahu-yuti-Surya-Mithunaya-10, Methodism 1703-1791 John Wesley suddenly married a wealthy widow with four children. The marriage proved remarkably unhappy, and despite the intense stigma of marital separation in England during the 1750's, his wife left him (claiming abuse and taking her children) during the subsequent Rahu-Ketu bhukti. Rahu joins nichha Shani in his navamsha-varga, and nichha-Shani joins his 7th-ruler Guru in the Kanya radical nativity. Shani rules the swamsha.

  • POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson married the ravishingly lovely and wealthy Rachael Jackson in 1791 during his Rahu-Rahu-swabhukti. It was considered a scandalous marriage because she was legally married to another man, and she was accused of bigamy. However, Rahu is ruled by Shani-7-digbala and Rahu casts drishti into Shani-7-yuti-lagnesha-Mangala. Andrew Jackson vigorously defended his wife's honor, even killing a man in a duel who spoke ill of her.

  • POTUS-10 Annex Texas 1790-1862 John Tyler 29-Mar-1813 marriage-1 to Letitia Christian (both age 23) * Rahu-Rahu swabhutki* samchara Rahu-Ketu via Karkata-Makara contact navamsha-Zukra

  • Two Women 1934- drama-commerce Sophia Loren * Sept-1957 (SL's age 23) legally (but not physically) participated in a double-proxy remote marriage. Spouse = the celebrated Italian film director Carlo Ponti. Unfortunately, Ponti was already married to another. In their homeland Italy, divorce was not allowed by law due to the theocratic Roman Catholic government . Mr. Ponti was separated from his first wife and had been involved with Ms. Loren for seven years. Yet in the eyes of the Church the union was taboo. From a bumpy beginning, the couple remained married for fifty years, until Ponti's death. * Rahu-Surya bhukti * Surya rules Simha swamsha * Rahu drishti to Surya lagnesha.

Maraka empowerment

Shri Rahu is a a natural maraka agent. His bhuktis are empowered with Permission to cross shadowy boundaries , and the line between incarnate vs. disincarnate is just such a boundary. Therefore Rahu needs no further justification via His ruler in order to effect a Release.

Rahu can also produce the maraka effects of His ruler, or of graha yuti Rahu.

For any lagna, Rahu's maraka potential is enhanced if Rahu occupies bhava-2 or Rahu occupies bhava-7.


Decease of Relatives

  • POTUS-21 Civil Service 1829-1886 Chester A. Arthur suffered the death of his eldest (and at the time only) child, a son, who left his tiny body aged three. Arthur and his wife later had two more children, who survived.

Rahu-Guru bhukti is permissive. In certain cases, such as mutual drishti between Rahu and Guru, this bhukti can be extremely permissive, with nearly all rules temporarily suspended to allow full rein to Rahuva's passions.

Rahu follows His desires and Guru opens the doors of opportunity. Brihaspati creates a vast territory in which Professor Rahu may operate largely outside the scope of Shani's rigid and conformist systems of regulatory law.

Rahu-Guru bhukti produces a generous, humanistic and abundantly fertile environment in which Guru's positive and cheerful philosophy of life seems to gloss over Rahu's typical exceptions and infractions. Rahu remains as always a charlatan and an impostor, taking on the image of one to whose privilege He aspires.

Yet during the Guru-Rahu bhukti, Rahu's camouflage seems especially successful. Rahuva is "looking good" and the broader environment seems to support the scheme. One seems to be "having it all" with few consequences for exceptional excessive indulgence, misrepresentation, or fraud.

  • Mormon Church 1805-1844 Golden Plates Joseph Smith 22-Sept-1827 Smith and his new wife Emma Hale discover the golden plates * Rahu-Guru bhukti * Guru rules 12-imagination, 3-announcements

Male personalities especially thrive in Guru-style Santa Claus roles offering wisdom and largesse to their partners, children, and grandchildren in exchange for Rahu-style privilege to do as one desires , free from conventional restrictions.

Much depends upon the rashi and bhava of Brihaspati, as well as upon the angular relationship between Guru and Rahu.

  • Pope-264 John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla * Guru randhresha-8 . In the previous Rahu-Rahu bhukti, Rahu-6, he had been significantly injured by a rogue streetcar. However apparently the message had not quite reached him, since he would be hit again as an intent to transform his body-consciousness. During Rahu-Guru bhukti on29-Feb-1944, the young man Lolek was hit by a German army truck; he suffered a severe concussion and shoulder injury (again).

Children

Guru bhukti of any mahadasha are naturally fertile bhuktis which tend to produce children on the basis of Brihaspati's role as a natural putra-putriki karaka without regard to bhava rulerships or other rules. Even an otherwise child-resistant nativity may produce children during Guru Bhukti, so long as samchara Rahu-Ketu are transiting a key lagna.

  • Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling gave birth to her first live child on 27-July-1993 during Rahu-Guru bhukti * gochara R-K Vrischika-Vrishabha contact radical R-K


Higher Education and Theoretical or Doctrinal Awards

Naturally Guru's bhava determines the manifestation of this bhukti. Overall, Guru bhuktis signify the arrival of a significant teacher-preacher figure within wise, sacred locations. The locations are often determined by the residential bhava of Guru. For example Guru-12 location would be meditative or imaginative or distant world, whereas Guru-9 would be a classic university setting but Guru-4 would be a local settlement and Guru-3 likely a commercial business.

The emphasis is on wisdom and expansion. Bhuktis of Brihaspati the university-karaka are likely times to complete a tertiary diploma following many (Guru) years of study, particularly if Guru is otherwise associated by rashi or by bhava, and particularly if the native intends to use their knowledge in order to teach.

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin May-1890 (age 20), age 20, by extraordinary arrangements (negotiated by his mother) graduates from a university that he did not attend, diploma in Law. Lenin had been dismissed from Kazan U. but received a college level law degree from St. Petersburg U., where his mother lived * Rahu-Guru bhukti * harsha-yoga Guru-8 rules-6 = secret dealings 8 undisclosed relationships

Marriage

Any Guru bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Brihaspati rules either the swamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity. Especially indicates a fertile mate, a philosopher, a patron, a preacher or a priest, one well suited to the role of father.

Maraka Agency for Professor Brihaspati * Exit Opening for Lightbody Lift-off

When Guru rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Brihaspati becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Measured from Mithunaya lagna or from Kanya lagna, Brihaspati obtains maraka empowerment as ruler of jaya-bhava-7.

Intense Catalysis

The previous Rahu-Guru bhukti has been expansive and permissive. One has become accustomed to Brihaspati's broad and generous benevolence, which confers the freedom to do as one desires, free from concern about negative consequences.

Although harsh consequences have been on hold during the philosophical, forgiving Rahu-Guru bhukti, nevertheless the System has been watching. The transition into Rahu-Shani bhukti may activate the expected mechanisms of social law and personal karma.

Rahu-Shani is often an excruciatingly difficult passage. Much depends upon the characteristics of Shani within the nativity. However overall the Rahu-Shani bhukti is a time of reckoning.

  • Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling notes that during her Rahu-Shani bhukti when her first husband became abusive soon after their first child was born, she left him absolutely, choosing to accept poverty (Shani-6) and single parenthood (Shani) rather than endure his crimes. Despite the embarrassment and social-financial pressures , the relationship was terminated due to unsustainability (Shani scarcity, fatigue ). Rowling says that despite the extreme stress, she "never regretted" lawfully leaving partner-1 "for cause".

  • Entertaining 1941- multimedia Martha Kostyra Stewart Oct-2004 until March-2005 served a federal prison term for securities fraud conviction * Rahu-Shani bhukti * compared to typical prison sentences in the US, Ms. Stewart's confinement was relatively brief. Rahu-5 and Shani-1 hold an easy 5-9 angle, and Rahu also enjoys mutual drishti with Guru-1 in the Shani-yuti-Guru pair which bring all the benefits of 8-9-10-11 into her radical lagna. Yet even considering the privileges of her nativity, the Rahu-Shani bhukti produced a personally and financially exhausting (Shani, exhaustion) legal (Shani-legal) battle, followed by a defeat which made no exceptions for her celebrity status (Shani despises specialness). Instead, she was treated under common law.

Generally the age of the native being older than 36 is of beneficial to the ability to handle the sometimes harsh events of Rahu-Shani. The older one gets, the more aligned one may feel with the structure of universal systems of order.

Older folks may accept that by residing within rule-ordered systems one may have earned a penalty through some previous irregularity. And older folks tend to accommodate rather than fight the penalty, displaying a sober neutrality befitting their seasoned experience in the world.


Special situation for dusthamsha-pathi Shani for Simha-Kanya lagna

Shani as game referee: now that Rahu-Shani bhukti is activated, Shani calls the shots and applies the penalties

For the Kanya and Simha radical lagna nativities, even for the chronologically mature native, Professor Shani-the-Referee ruler of bhava-6 may teach a particularly punitive lesson for purpose of correction regarding previous un-contractual actions, imbalanced treatment of others, or betrayal of trust - particularly in a marriage. From a wiser perspective, the lesson is actually a Gift providing Self-knowledge, and the apparently sorrowful event provides an opportunity to accept this Gift of understanding.

If the previous bhukti of Guru has 'gone overboard' during the tempting permissiveness of Rahu-Guru bhukti, then weighty consequences may arrive during Rahu-Shani. Unlawful excess during Rahu-Guru is most likely if Guru-Rahu enjoy some variety of extra-amplification such as perhaps a mutual aspect involving Chandra or Zukra, or Rahu-yuti-Chandra or Guru-yuti-Chandra et-cetera.

It is rare for Rahu-Guru high-permission bhukti to have produced truly egregious behaviors, but whatever would be considered by Shani-the-Game-Referee to have been out-of-limits may be penalized proportional to the irregularity.


"The system" of universal ordering via associative and distributive networks reaches an optimal maximum during any Shani bhukti. Shanaicarya gives the strongest results for the rashi of His mulatrikona Kumbha.

For Simha lagna nativities which tend to acquire an elder spouse, Shani may indicate a karmic situation with the life-partner that is most often characterized by the natural limitations of aging and time. Conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy may unfold, regarding the bones and cartilage, particularly the knees.

In the case of Kanya lagna, Shani rules the mahadusthamsha-6 . Rahu-Shani bhukti is capable of producing significant animosity or illness. The previous Rahu-Guru bhukti may have permitted exceptional excesses in matters of 4-home-school-parents and 7-relationship-trust-agreement.

When Shani's penalty comes due, Kanya lagna may feel "betrayed by the system". Nerve-and-skin ailments or criminal accusations with litigation resulting even (in very extreme cases) in conviction with punishments may unfold. At the very least there may be severe disappointment of expectations.

  • Harry Potter 1965- magical-fiction J.K. Rowling * Kanya-Parthya * in 1995 after working passionately on the first Harry Potter book for three years while living in poverty and raising a child as a single parent, submitted evaluation manuscripts to 12 publishers, receiving 12 rejections * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani rules 6th-from-Chandra

Shani bhukti gives salient material effects per radical lagna according to the bhava that is Kumbha. If Shani occupies or casts drishti into Kumbha, the effects may be more rigidly realistic.

  1. Mesha lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-11 * economic marketplace, salary, income, cold or rigid friendships
  2. Vrishabha lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-10 * professional dignity, cold or rigid boss or statutory authority
  3. Mithuna lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-9 * indoctrination, guru, professor, theory, university, cold or rigid father-figure
  4. Karkata lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-8 * hidden assets, secret relationships, taxes, cold or rigid in-laws
  5. Simha lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-7 * legal contracts, terms of agreement, advisors, attorneys, cold or rigid life-partner
  6. Kanya lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-6 * litigation, accusation, servitude, injustice, nervous ailments, cold or rigid maternal relatives
  7. Thula lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-5 * romance, children, creative intelligence, cold or rigid heart
  8. Vrizchika lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru bhukti, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-4 * home, owned property, schooling, cold or rigid mother-figure
  9. Dhanuzya lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru bhukti, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-3 * delays in business, communication, mercantile operations, cold or rigid sibling-cohort
  10. Makara lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-2 * treasuries, knowledge, banking, collections, cold or rigid family lineage
  11. Kumbha lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-1 * personality, appearance, vital energy, cold or rigid fleshbody
  12. Meena lagna = if there has been exceptional excess during Rahu-Guru, there may unfold karmic consequences related to bhava-12 * imagine, dreams, foreign residence, cold or rigid spiritual guidance

Bhukti of Professor Shani typically produces extra-strict rules with "no exceptions ". Shanaicarya is rigid, unforgiving, resistant to even small changes in His statutory system, and often merciless. Nevertheless Shani is consistent and reliable in His application of the law. Conditions of life while harsh, austere and minimalistic are also commonplace.

The experience of being oppressed and pinched is nearly universally understood. One allies with the masses and the classes. Time and space rule the third-dimensionality. Unlike the previous expansively philosophical Guru bhukti, during Shani bhuktis the limitations of five-senses reality seem compellingly real.

If Professor Rahu and Professor Shani are both strong, the Rahu-Shani bhukti can be one of the most intensely difficult bhuktis in life.

Rahu-Shani is often a tough life bhukti, due to the conflict between Rahu's urge to shoot upward and Shani's obligation to maintain the status-quo . Shani may have punitive functions.

Even if Shani and Rahu are well placed relative to each other, their mutually incommensurable agendae can be expected to cause some stress.

Professor Shani = a taskmaster and a separation-maker. If Shani additionally has a role regarding a family member, a career, or a disease condition, the Rahu-Shani bhukti can produce vividly separating, stiffening, seizing, freezing, or potentially fatal results.


Events related to Shani's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions

Maturity, Sobriety, Authority of Leadership, Slowness, Retardation, Rigidity, Hierarchy, Social Class, Respect for Age and Accomplishment, Seniority, Systems Regulation, Rule of Law


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Shani rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Shanaicarya carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of leadership duty associated with governance, regulation, systematization, hierarchies, and the maintenance of the social order. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

For maximum results, Shani must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Rahuva, and Shani should possess other strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.


Marriage

Any Shani bhukti during any mahadasha may signal the timing of ceremonial wedding * formalization of alliance, if Shani rules either the swamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu to one of the required axes of the nativity.

Weddings matched to a jarana-karaka Shani bhukti especially indicate an elder, more experienced, or more senior mate. Shani durosha-karaka also suggests a sober and socially responsible person characterized by longevity and endurance. Shani niyama-karaka indicates that Shani-timed weddings (in any mahadasha) may be the consequence less of affection and more of social rules. The spouses may be marrying as an expression of social duty or in conformance with the expectations of others. Shani-timed events often carry the weight of pressing material-social obligations.

The marriage arrangement may involve heavy social responsibilities . One may feel regulated by social rules, and by elders . The conventional expectations regarding division of labor within the union must be scrupulously maintained, particularly with regard to social class, age, position in the hierarchy, caste, and rank. However if one is possessed of mature and sober character, and able to accept the weight of social obligation that is implicit in a Shani-timed ceremony of agreement, then the marriage may succeed quite admirably.

If the native has passed the age of Shani's maturity 36, the alliance can be both realistic and fulfilling. Typically Shani-timed weddings align with attainment of more dignified social standing while the native also experiences pressure to form a partnership according to the conventions of the social order.

When Shani rules the 1-7 navamsha axis, the native was born into an orderly expectation of negotiated contracts. Therefore so long as an unrealistic expectations of charming poetic romance, frivolity or fun are disavowed, the benefits of Shani's rigid character may be realized including loyalty to the contract and longevity of the working pair.

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empire Victoria-1 exchange the vows of marriage with her cousin Albert on10-Feb-1840 (her age 20) * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani rules swamsha . Her Guru-7 dhava-karaka casts a strong fertile drishti into her Chandra-Rohini-11. She needed (Chandra) her husband's attention (Rohini) and by all accounts she received it. The couple produced nine children and were happy parents.

  • POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan * during his Rahu-Shani bhukti Jan-1940, exchanged the vows of marriage-1 with Hollywood dramatist Jane Wyman. * Shani rules navamsha-7 * Shani-yuti-Rahu

  • WARREN BUFFET 30-Aug-2006 marriage-2 (his age 76) = to Astrid (a longtime friend of his first wife Susan) * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani lagnesha, durokaraka * R-K samchara Meena-Kanya contact vargottamsha Zukra


Children

If Shani rules a putra-putriki bhava, and one is of sufficient childbearing or child-adopting age, then children may be expected.

Naturally, Shani's inherent character suggests that while the production of children may satisfy social expectations, nevertheless the offspring may be expected to carry significant material responsibilities.

The burden of time required for their upbringing and support may feel heavy indeed.

  • Super Brain 1946- Dr. Deepak Chopra completed medical training in India, got married in 1970, move to the USA, started a residency with extremely demanding work hours, and then his first child was born. Typical of the Rahu-Shani bhukti the joy of children may have been tempered by the reality of the labor schedule.


Maraka Agency for Professor Shani * Exit Opening for Lightbody Lift-off

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover dropped his fleshbody on 20-Oct-1964 Earthbody-Exit (age 90) * Rahu-Shani bhukti * maraka Shani rules-7

  • Romanov adviser 1869-1916 Grigori Rasputin was assassinated on 30-Dec-1916 * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Karkata lagna

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt left her terrestrial body during Rahu-Shani bhukti on 07-Nov-1962 (her age 78)

Other mechanisms

  • POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Madison (age 81) left her terrestrial body on 12-July-1849 during Rahu-Shani bhukti. Although born into Thula lagna, due to Shani-yuti-Ketu boosted by Shani rules 7th-from-Chandra, Shri Shani produces the body-dissociation of Shri Ketu.

Decease of relatives:

  • France-Queen 1775-1793 Marie Antoinette 18-Aug-1764 grieved decease of father (Marie's age 9) * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani rules 2nd-from-9

  • POTUS-21 Civil Service 1829-1886 Chester A. Arthur * Jan-1869 grieved the decease of mother (Chester's age 40) * Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani rules 2nd-from-Chandra

Vimshottari bhuktis of Professor Ketu the Vacuum are scheduled for the purpose of release and forgiveness.

The substance, idea, person, relationship, entity, or social role that is surrendered during the Ketu bhukti is by definition spiritually unnecessary. It has outlived its usefulness and it has lost its vitality Maintaining this enervated phenomenon (whatever it is) is costing too much energy within the life system. Thus it is scheduled for release at the appointed time.

Examples of things to be released include experiences from other lives which have expired in their relevance to the current life, outdated relationships that no longer match the authentic life-force energy of the native, parts of the body that may be holding genetic memories that are scheduled for release (hair, teeth, appendix, sometimes other limbs or organs) and other similar scenarios.

Professor Ketu is Rahu's dried and lifeless tail which flutters in the ethers like a flag in the wind. Therefore Ketu bhuktis are often associated with the cutting-off of some desiccated appendage. Along with Professor Mangala, Ketu is the co-ruler of transformative randhra-bhava-8. After releasing the unnecessary form, one often begins a path toward rejuvenation.

Events related to Ketu's karaka-functions or bhava *banishment, abandonment, severance, pilgrimage, dissolution, dispersion

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin Feb-1897 * sentenced to three years low-security exile in Siberia, spent in a rented room of a peasant hut, writing extensive correspondence, translating documents and enjoying the outdoors * Rahu-Ketu bhukti * Harsha Yoga no harm from jail

Ketu is not desired by Rahu. Feelings of emptiness and rejection.

Before fully realizing that the Desired One no longer matches the authentic spiritual body, Ketu bhuktis may produce a vain hope for connection with an unavailable or inappropriate person, social role, idea, or object. Before the realization of the need to release the attachment, even knowing that the desire is lifeless, one may experience the illusion of connection which dissipates into fantasy, numbness, or distraction. Desires are dispersed into "echo" awareness that one is not desired by the object of affection.

This awareness of emptiness is merely an echo of one's own higher consciousness signaling that this Object is no longer suitably connected to oneself * although in other lives and other realities the Object may have been a vital companion.

The barest vestige of a faded connection

Professor Ketu often induces a feeling of attempted reconnection with a person, place, thing, or idea that was significant in a previous life or in a distant phase of the present life. However, the attachment is vestigial, no longer part of the vital script of the true present identity.

Thus, connection is often unsustainable for reasons of spirit. The reasons of spirit often have more tangible echoes in reasons of social class attributes, reasons of knowledge lineage, reasons of ethnicity or race, reasons of doctrine, and other formal rationale.

Yet the definitive reason for the non-connection experience of Ketu is that one sees the object of attachment in a distant mirror, as a mere reflection of an already completed script. The object, for its part, will generally not allow the native to make more than a temporary and superficial connection to itself.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner 1913 schism in the Theosophical Society that caused widespread dispersal of the previously unified European membership. After realizing that the rift cannot be mended , Steiner takes most of the German-speaking members with him into a new Anthroposophy sect * Rahu-Ketu bhukti * Ketu schism, split


Rahu-Ketu bhukti may be a time of considerable risk-taking.

Mahadasha-pathi Rahu controls the entire 18-year bhukti, emphasizing taboo-breaking ambitions which energize the ego-membrane toward higher accomplishments and higher privilege.

Ketu's 12-month bhukti introduces a temporary but exaggerated (due to Rahu) apathetic lack of concern with social-material consequences, including disregard for fleshdeath.

Thus the native may engage in death-defying acts of apparent courage which are in fact simply an act of Ketu abandonment of concern for consequences.

Much depends as always upon Ketu's lord and also any graha yuti Ketu.

  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 publisher Virginia Woolf 1940 the home of Leonard and Virginia Woolf was destroyed during the nighttime air-raid Blitzkrieg by WW-2 German attackers * Rahu-Ketu bhukti + Ketu-12 formless foreigners + Sade-Sati ... then 28-Mar-1941 (age 59) death by suicide * Rahu-Ketu bhukti + Ketu-12+ Sade-Sati


Marriage and divorce

Professor Ketu is teaching a curriculum that focuses upon topics of impermanence, severance, amputation, abandonment, wandering, windiness, disemburdenment, and surrender. Naturally Ketu bhuktis support psycho-spiritual opening of awareness and ego-dissolving projects.

Normally, the purpose of marriage is to establish a permanent and fruitful bond of mutual trust. Consecration of Marriage during Ketu bhuktis is rare and unusual. A marriage ceremony performed during Ketu bhukti may remain unconsummated. The spouse disappears either literally or figuratively, or the behavior of the spouse is exceptionally eccentric. Much depends on Ketu's ruler and upon any graha which may share a rashi with Professor Ketu.

  • France-Queen 1775-1793 Marie Antoinette was married during her Rahu-Ketu bhukti to Louis-XVI of France by proxy (Ketu disconnected) on 04-Dec-1770 (Marie's age 15.1) in her native Austria. Upon reaching France, her marriage remained unconsummated for at least seven years. In the eighth year of her marriage, Marie bore a daughter. However Louis was known more for his love of elaborate wigs, bright silken fashions, and palace intrigue. The children coincided with the return to Marie's social circle of a favorite young male courtier, and thus the lack of connection was at least superficially masked.

Rahu-Ketu bhukti is a notably frequent marker for sudden eruptions of impermanence and incoherence in adult life, such as unexpected divorce or decease of the spouse.


Maraka Agency for Professor * Exit Opening for Flesh Death

When Ketu is ruled by a graha which itself rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, or Ketu occupies 2 or 7, Professor Ketu becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Ketu also has, independent of His planetary ruler, the individual chidra-karaka agency of a beheader, cord-cutter, incisor, shredder, slicer, and amputator.

Therefore Ketu bhuktis always carry the potential scatter the material-world forms. Those "left behind" may perceive Ketu's molecular dispersal as a physical death.

Azvini, Magha, Mula and Arudra, Swati, Shata-taraka nativities have a special Ketu exit-empowerment = an available option for those who know how to use it.

General characteristics of a Chandra bhukti

An era of amplified feelings for home and homeland. One may seek residence near the ocean shores, or shipbound. Retreat to safety and a secure routine. Typically a time of more quiet retreat, ideally near the ocean. Emotional relationships are psychically sensitive and care-taking. Emphasis on domestic routines, food and nurturing, caring for and serving others, staying closer to home.

Chandra is the garha-karaka for village and household life. Promoting the experience of familiar, rhythmic, routines and sheltered security Professor Chandra nearly always maintains some degree of comfort. Yet the outcome depends significantly upon the angle between the cultural mixer-master, rajyalobha Rahu agent of ambition, versus matrikaraka Chandra agent of ancestral deep roots. However any angle may produce heightened feelings of patriotism, self-defense, attachment to parents, love of the land, need for comfortable rhythms and routines, need for security.

Any nativity may expect an increase in the experiences associated with Chandra such as deeper emotional sensitivity, engagement with matters of security and stability, cultural tap-roots, foundational education, patriotism, defense of national-ethnic boundaries and fenced lands, as well as matters of the mother and her folk.

The specific outcome of any Chandra bhukti depends upon the bhava rulerships held by Chandra as measured from both the radical lagna and the Chandra-lagna. Outcomes are also affected by drishti entering Chandra, by the role of Chandra's planetary ruler, and very importantly by the bhava in which Chandra resides. Chandra is so sensitive psycho-emotionally that Chandra bhukti outcomes are also particularly influenced by transits of Rahu-Ketu or transits of Shani.

In Rahu-Chandra bhukti, Chandra seeks shelter from sudden changes and insecurity along the exciting, boundary-challenging path of Rahu's quest for social mobility.

Chandra bhukti is typically a more quiet interlude within the overall fascinating and ambitious 18-year era of Professor Rahu.

What to Expect during a Mangala bhukti?

Evaluate the placements of Mangala.

Consider the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + the angle from the mahadasha-pathi to the bhukti-pati + incoming-outgoing graha-drishti + current gochara transits + age of the native.

Has the graha matured ?

Are the mahadashapathi and the bhuktipathi mutually friendly?

chidra-dasha * Final Bhukti of the 18-year Rahu Mahadasha

The final bhukti requires return of unusable energies, cutting-off, severance, release, forgiveness


The typical effects of chidra-dasha Mangala promote an energetic conclusion to 18-year developments of the Rahu mahadasha.

Much depends upon the two bhava ruled by Kuja, counted from radical lagna as well as from Chandra.

From Vrishabha lagna and Dhanuzya lagna, Kuja = ruler-of-12 .

As vyayapathi, Kuja exacerbates the drama of identity loss as a defining feature of the scene-closure at the end of Rahu mahadasha. Also Vidyapthi-5, Kuja encourages a continuation of political, creative, or theatrical interests but in a style less central to the identity.

One may pass the baton to a child, if putrabhava is strong.

  • Shambala 1939-1987 Tulku Chogyam Trungpa's first child was born during Rahu-Mangala bhukti in 1962. Mangala putrapathi rules 5. This son later became the lineage head of Trungpa's entire operation, including a network of meditation centers, a university, a publishing company, and more.

Measured from Thula lagna and Meena lagna, Mangala gains maraka capabilities; if the longevity is maximized at this closure bhukti, shell-death may be permitted. Ceteris paribus, the Rahu-Mangala chidra-dasha = a likely exit bhukti for both Thula-Vanika and Meena-Antya nativities.

From Kanya lagna, Mangala has the challenging role of bhratrupathi-3 plus randhresha-8 , suggesting intrigue which may bring one's downfall. Potential for scandal which is first hidden (8) and then announced (3).

From Mesha lagna, randhresha Kuja may produce a swift turning of the cycle of birth and death which causes an energetic even violent upheaval at the end of Rahu mahadasha (nature of upheaval known via rashi-drishti of Kuja). Yet followed by a strong rebirth due to Mangala's high vitality lagnesha function for the Mesha nativity.


Events related to Mangala's bhava location, rulerships, or karaka functions

For Vrischika lagna, Mangala is lagnesha signifying events important to the identity and personal purpose

For Karkata lagna, Mangala is an empowered yogakaraka ruling 5 + 10

  • Be Here Now 1931- Baba Ram Dass * At the age of 87, Ram Dass was still actively engaged in entertaining, public teaching. * Rahu-Mangala chidradasha * yogakaraka Kuja rules 5 + 10 +++ Vrischika-Chandra-5 parivartamsha Karkata-Kuja-1


Leadership Duties, Public Respect, and Professional Recognition

When Mangala rules the 7th or 10th radical bhava or 10th navamsha or 10th-from-Chandra, Professor Kuja carries the potential to elevate the native into socially recognized positions of career authority and responsibilities. Promotion and obtainment of professional portfolio may be expected.

Mangala-type duties are typically associated with movement, dance, energy, competition, conquest, innovation, engines and engineering, invasion, surgery, sexual pursuit, sport, physical body and its sciences, military, explosion, drilling, diving, weaponry and warfare, heat, speed, investigation, exploration, and male-dominated environments.

For maximum results, Kuja must occupy a supportive angle vis-a-vis Mahadashapathi Ketu, and Professor Angarika should possess several strengths via bhava rulership, razi, companion graha, drizti, inter alia.

Special considerations for Rank-and-Status during the chidra-dasha

The closure-and-completion signification of the chidra-dasha does not alter the benefits of public honors bestowed during the chidra-dasha. Yet the promotion in rank that may be obtained during this final bhukti may signify the end of a long bhukti of accomplishments throughout the 18 year Rahu mahadasha rather than the beginning of a new era of public responsibilities.

Typically the titles bestowed during a chidra-dasha social promotion are honorific and summative in nature rather than formative toward the next phase career development. Nevertheless if Guru is materially strong , the entitlement or authority received even at this time of forgiveness and conclusion may carry forward into the subsequent Mahadasha of Brihaspati.

  • POTUS-03 Thomas Jefferson * Karkata lagna so that his Mangala-1 = a very potent 5-10 yogakaraka. During the previous Rahu-Chandra bhukti, Jefferson had received a substantial inheritance which allowed him to retire from his law practice. Then during his Rahu-Mangala bhukti, freed from daily work, he became intensely (Kuja) involved in politics and political philosophy (5) and began writing upon principles of governance (10). During Rahu-Mangala 1775-76 he was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence

  • Although he was vigorously engaged in shaping the new nation during Rahu-Mangala bhukti, and his political writing during Rahu-Mangala bhukti can be seen as powerfully formative toward his future dignity, Kuja-driven Jefferson was considered a bit of a loose cannon (Mangala). He had little formal authority until the onset of Guru Mahadasha, when he was elected to the powerless role of Governor of Virginia, and then much later during advising, partnerships rules-7 Shani mahadasha when he achieved true executive power as POTUS-03 from 1801 until 1809.

Marriage

Any Mangala bhukti during any mahadasha may support ceremonial marriage, if Kuja rules either the swamsha or the navamsha-7 AND there occurs a suitable transit of Rahu-Ketu contacting one of the required axes of the nativity. Mangala-timed marriage especially indicates the qualities of Angarika in the marital union, including a physically able, athletic, champion, competitive, exploratory, innovative, dynamically energetic, or warlike mate.

Marriages officiated during any chidra-dasha have special considerations. This particular chidra-dasha Rahu-Mangala is often surging with passion, and since it is followed directly by the Guru-Guru swabhukti, the special consideration may well be that there is a child on the way.

  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 assembly line Henry Ford * 11-Apr-1888 marriage to Clara Bryant (Henry's age 25). * Rahu-Mangala chidradasha* Mangala rules swamsha * R-K gochara Karkata-Makara contact Chandra-Makara

Chidra-dasha marks the End of an Era

When Mangala rules bhava-2 or bhava-7, Professor Kuja becomes a potential marana-karaka who gives teachings upon the subject of saturation (2) and balanced completion of the contract (7).

Measured from Vrishabha lagna and from Thula lagna, Mangala maraka rules-7

Measured from Vrishabha lagna and from Meena lagna, Mangala maraka rules-2

  • POTUS-14 Bleeding Kansas 1804-1869 Franklin Pierce 08-Oct-1869 decease (via liver cirrhosis, age 64) * Rahu-Mangala bhukti * Mangala maraka rules-2
