BPL commentary

For Shata-taraka births of a feminine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .

For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Sadabija, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sadachbia /Tabernacles/

[Rahu] -ruled Sata ladies are rare birds. Varuna-deva born = often found in fascinating social roles that boost mass consciousness. Sata feminine figures = often express Rahu's shimmering attractions. Although not conventional beauties, they usually become wealthy and popular.

Sadachbia ladies may hold dignified professional positions [Shani]. Their public conduct appears appropriate [Shani], but their personal lifestyles may be unorthodox [Rahu]. They are especially skilled in using the etheric magneto-electrical gridwork, and in this context may be healers.

Satha-yathevi unusual behavior often challenges outdated social stereotypes and improves economic opportunities for women. Yet, consciously or not, Sadachbia ladies may serve expedient purposes within a larger marketplace network.

Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

Themes of over-reaching, charlatanry, entrancement, expedient linkage, hypnotic appearance, and connections between contradictory systems may contextualize Sata's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Sadachbia-Varuna

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 100.

"A person who is controlled in her emotions.

  • She is not easily angered.

  • Her own sex respects her.

She is attached to her relatives

  • and beloved by her elders.

She will always maintain a good and respectable position in the community."
