Normalization, Order, Law

Kumbha = Rule-Governed Linkage Systems

Traveling through Kumbha rashi, Shri Shanideva Bhagavan matures and structures the human apprehension of rule-governed networks.

Shanaicarya is not concerned with individual reality, intelligence, or unique qualities. Individual uniqueness = a province of Simha and Shri Vishnu, the all-seeing Sun. Shani feels an intense dislike toward Surya's traits.

Professor Shani teaches about scientific, economic, and social-participation systems.

The systems may be financial, electronic, galactic, geographic, geological, bureaucratic, terrestrial, organizational, social, educational, political, medical, chemical, historical, traditional, architectural, evangelical, agricultural, infrastructural, doctrinal, monumental, regional, national, international, or local.

From the most miniscule sub-particles to the most massive multiverses, when constituent elements become organized into regulated, associative, distributive webs, Shani is the Boss.

Marketplace Exchange Linkage

Shani is concerned to maintain orderly exchange linkages. His networks may exchange goods, services, or information. If an entity whether mental, emotional, or physical in nature, can be commoditized into a packet, then Shani regulates the complex processes by which that packet moves throughout the multiverses.

The systems may be dedicated to sharing abstract scientific conceptual or philosophical information. The systems may be dedicated to the orderly movement of concrete items such as labor, food, or survival stuff. Shani manages supply-chain economics. He does not care about the unique feelings that a human may have in regard to the objects in the traffic. He only cares about optimizing the orderliness of the traffic.

Shri Shanideva Bhagavan is all about Material Survival

Realistic Professor Shani is concerned with effective distribution of survival goods such as food, shelter, and military protection. However, He is utterly un-concerned with the politics of starvation or war. (Politics is the realm of Shani's arch-enemy Surya). Individual consequences are not on Shani's radar. He sees only The System.

He can permit superstition and compassionless cruelty if these evils would facilitate efficient systems.

Shani loves Empirical Science

Shanideva Bhagavan relishes the third-dimensional materialism of the modern scientific worldview. He rewards activity of non-theoretical bench science, experimental science, and applied science. He is neutral toward theoretical science but supports orderly data collections and assessment.

Will Shani succeed in imposing His structuring, law-abiding, limiting and restricting program upon Kumbha-Ghata's field of rule-based linkage systems, economies, ecologies, and communities?

Results depend upon the role of Kumbha - Ghata in the individual nativity - including the nativities of nations.

Graha which can impede or harass Shani include His typical adversaries Surya, Chandra, and Mangala as well as Opportunistic Rahu the merchant of chaos.

Check for the roles of these graha within the nativity, and anticipate the effect of Shani's transiting contact upon each of them.

Effects are determined by factors such as bhava-activating rulership, incoming drishti, and inherent friendliness of the bhava toward Visiting Professor Shani.

Samchara Shani contact Kumbha - Ghata radical lagna

Samchara Shani-Makara imposes a variety of reinforcing, disciplinary, austerity-imposing, and structuring effects upon the radical lagna Kumbha - Ghata

Effects may include unrelenting economic regulation, heavy responsibility for friends, obligatory networking, more attention paid to the nerve-and-skin requirements of the fleshbody. Other impacts can be the typical Shani demands for uniformity, maturity, systematic behaviors, frugality, curtailment of wastefulness, and sobriety. In severe cases, there is potential for oppression by a coercive community.

Normally, Shani's 2.3-year-long visitation in Kumbha = a smooth transit because Shani's character as lagnesha is already compatible with the overall pragmatism, materialism, and economic orientation of the nativity.

Sade-Sati Kumbha

In addition to the rigidly disciplining effects of Shanideva Bhagavan transit to the radical lagna, If Chandra-Kumbha occupies the radical lagna, emotionally overwhelming Sade-Sati impacts can be anticipated.



Samchara Shani via Kumbha - Ghata

Effects upon the 12 bhava

  • Although Shani's effects can be recognized during His entire journey via all 30 degrees of each rashi, the most tangible results of His influence are often notice when He contacts the " cusp" degree. For most purposes, the " cusp" degree is the degree of the radical lagna (however various practitioners apply varying bhava-cusp rules).
  • Naturally, if the transit of Shani via Makara rashi occurs simultaneously with an important Vimshottari Dasha bhukti of Professor Shani, particularly Shani-Shani svabhukti * then the demands of limitation, discipline, austerity, elegance, maturity, sobriety, and social responsibility are further imposed.

  1. If Kumbha = bhava-1 as measured from Kumbha indriya-lagna or measured from Kumbha-Chandra * The earthen body size may contract due to restriction of the flow of kinetic energy. The attribute-cluster personality may temporarily embody the Shani-sponsored virtues of maturity, sobriety, austerity, and patience. The social personality may feel pressured into accepting heavier workload and responsibilities; However, the demonstration of dutiful conformity to the system may grant a welcome sense of identity with the community. Time schedules for personal movement may be more rigorous and limited. Narrowed scope of operations for graha-in-1. Sporting competitions, individual championship, unique appearance may be discouraged. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness. Nota Bene: if Shani's transit via bhava-1 also contacts Kumbha-Chandra , then in addition to the general effects of Shani's slowing, drying, seizing, restricting of the fleshbody, there may also be a freezing of the flow of emotional nourishment during Sade-Saati. Shani's drishti upon 3 ++ 3rd-from-Chandra may produce temporary mental depression. Shani contact rogesha-Soma may signal a need to preserve the existing personality (1) against the influence of adversaries or accusers (Chandra activates 6).

  2. If Kumbha = bhava-2 as measured from Makara indriya-lagna or measured from Makara-Chandra * Shani may desiccate the sustaining foods (2, pantry). Stored foodstuffs may be drier or preserved (such as via salt or other chemicals). Shani prefers more cautious speech , telling of hoary stories, singing the old traditional songs, reciting the approved histories. He cherishes frozen hoards of worthy objects. Compression of teeth-tongue (2) due to fear of telling the truth. Corrective dental work is slow but steady. It may require sober preparation to speak the Kumbha truths which describe collective consciousness, material sciences, ecologies, and economies. Fearful of nonconformity, the family of origin may be punitive or harshly judgmental. The family may temporarily withhold validation (validity, 2). Scarcity of contained resources. Culling of the animal herds, narrowed lineage knowledge, shrinking of historical consciousness, blocked language fluency. Depreciation of contained, warehoused, cooped, banked values. Compressed output of graha-in-2. Financial accounts, precious collections, libraries and databases may be blocked or access delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness.

  3. If Kumbha = bhava-3 as measured from Dhanus indriya-agna or measured from Dhanus-Chandra * * reduced frequency of communication events. Fewer business transactions , explanations, descriptions, instructions, diagrams, trainings, and teamwork. Reduces the scope of evangelism, propaganda, including writing, radio-television-internet. Messages must adopt a collectivist [Kumbha] plebeian vocabulary. Narrows the range of the target audience. Institutionalizes and bureaucratizes administrative process. Temporarily diminished frequency of short-term travel, tours, conference attendance, seminars, short courses. Or, attending these meetings becomes more laborious, dutiful, colder, discouraging. Instructions = legalistic, pragmatic, cautious, structured, or socially responsible. Orderly Shani is quite comfortable in a svabhava of specific, instructional, tool-using Budha the Messenger-Merchant. Messages must demonstrate a practical usefulness measured by their direct application to the mental or manual task. Compressed output of graha-in-3. Entrepreneurial commerce, ensemble collaboration, publication, programming may be hampered. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness.

  4. If Kumbha = bhava-4 as measured from Vṛścika indriya-lagna or measured from Vṛścika-Chandra - gochara Shani slowdown drishti into 6-10-1 * Due to gochara Sauran's cold, stiffening, stony drishti upon tanu-bhava-1, the mineral-body can age visibly during these 2.3 years. Delays and restrictions in the established rhythms of home life, including reduction or retardation of the shelter, limitation of the property boundaries, Dryness or rockiness of farmlands. Mandatory boundary-protection. Legally imposed limits on local economic activity.. Schools of all kinds may experience harsher austerities imposed by elites. Kumbha concentrates the resources into the linkage network. Conformist policies may restrict individual freedoms while emphasizing an efficient system. Transportation networks (4) may be slower or more constrained financially. Local infrastructure underfunded. Schoolteachers and local police delayed pay. Friends may behave like adversaries (4 = 6th-from-11th) when situated on one's home or lands. Unorthodox buildings or bright house colors may be forbidden by conservative associations. Stricter inspections for new construction emphasis interior systems. Compressed output of graha-in-4. Local infrastructure, building, shipping, vehicles, roadways may suffer delayed maintenance. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness.

  5. If Kumbha = bhava-5 as measured from Tula indriya-lagna or measured from Tula-Chandra * Restricted expression of free individual creativity. Constrains the range of theatrical genius, glittering fashion, political display. Structures imposed by social order tend to limit personal entitlements. Temporary oppression of the unique brilliance of children, including students . More pressure to use standardized testing + less tolerance for individualized learning styles. Conceptions = reduced, fewer children are born, the burden of raising children feels heavier. Kids may undergo more regimentation. Poets and literary artist s may experience resistance to fame. Politicians may be pressured by the government away from flamboyant campaigning and celebrity sparkle. Speculative finance cramped by legalities. Attempts to systematize artistic creativity. Compressed output of graha-in-5. Elections, entertainments, prizes, and games may be onerous or delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness. Shukra lagnesha is a close friend of Shani. Therefore, despite its dryness, this Shani Tour is usually smooth. Additionally, Shani = yogakaraka from Tula indriya-lagna. Therefore, this Shani Tour is usually smooth.

  6. If Kumbha = [bhava-6] as measured from Kanya radical lagna or measured from Kanya-Chandra * overall beneficial effect * the scope of vata [Kumbha] imbalance may diminish because Shani-via-6 slows disease. Chronic conditions may entrench. Restrains the production of toxins. Limits options for self-medication. The number of accusatory litigations, disputes, treachery, broken promises or unsatisfied contracts may decrease. Strictly pragmatic, legalistic, and lowest-common-denominator attitude toward matters of litigation. Tendency to accept exploitative conditions while sustaining complaints. Simmering hatred but no physical altercation. Shani limits the movement of adversarial personalities in the workplace. Status = unfair but unmovable. Professor Sauran has enduring patience for slavery and servitude. Ailments of coldness, dryness, bone pain, may be medicated with cold, dark, stiff, old, stony materials. Arthritis. Compressed output of graha-in-6. Medical treatment, litigation, divorce, criminalization / crime, provision of aid may be onerous or delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness. Budha lagnesha is a close friend of Shani. Therefore, this Shani Tour is usually smooth.

  7. If Kumbha = bhava-7 as measured from Simha indriya-lagna or measured from Simha-Chandra lagna * Shani gets temporary [dikbala] for 2.3 years. Strict Shani imposes contractual obligations upon relationships both business and personal. Professor Shani's zero-exception legal judgments generally benefits the svabhava of balance-seeking, contractual Shukra. Conventionally conservative advisors. Cautious consultants. Preference preference for existing partnerships rather than new ones. Social pressure to complete brokerage, match-making, betrothal. Partners demand adherence to terms of agreement. Shani may be less willing to extend cooperation. More insistent on legally vetted contracts. Due to gochara Shani's cold, stiffening, stony drishti upon tanu-bhava-1, the flesh-body may age temporarily during this 2.3 year transit. Only the most socially approved types of alliance, promise-making, avowal are supported. Avowed unions can benefit from maintaining shared community connections [Kumbha]. Compressed output of graha-in-7. Vows, trusts, marriages, promises may be onerous or delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness. Sparkling Surya lagnesha is a bitter enemy of class-conscious Shani. During this Shani Tour, the Systems Master = especially hostile to personal entitlements and individual exceptions.

  8. If Kumbha= bhava-8 as measured from Karkata indriya-lagna or measured from Karkata-Chandra lagna * Shani feels threatened in Kuja's svabhava-8. Kuja is a warrior who fights to the death, but Shani's shield must resist Kuja's sword. Moolatrikona Shani delays dematerialization during His visit to randhrasthāna. Suppression of occult phenomena ++ scientific methods can produce careful discovery of previously hidden connections. Common-sense materialism denies the reality of unseen forces. Impulse toward rebirth is delayed. Reduced tolerance for the unexpected. Reluctance or refusal to respond to frightening events. Shani seals the lid which hides the secret caches. Shani camouflages the gateway to forbidden power. Retards the healing transformations while cautious discovery proceeds. Few initiation ceremonies. Those which occur would be minimal and performed in cold plasma wind, surviving whispers of the speaking stones. Shani-Kumbha uses the winds and the stones to indicate the presence of the Great Networks . True scientists can see the Web. Stops earthquakes or minimizes their violence. Limits discovery of new power sources, but improves the orderliness of the search. Dims insight into condition of rebirth. Retards delivery inheritance from the estate of the parents (5th-from-4th). Compressed output of graha-in-8. Disaster response, recovery operations, exploratory surgeries, emergent new identities may be deprioritized. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga = temporarily slowed by scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness.

  9. If Kumbha = bhava-9 as measured from Mithuna indriya-lagna or measured from Mithuna-Chandra lagna * Shani focuses upon orthodoxy while He limits the scope of higher philosophical wisdom. Shani deprioritizes individual authenticity while He emphasizes conformity of credenda. He temporarily suppresses doctrinal questioning and dissent. Duty toward the sangha. Less conceptual theory in science, more structured application of proven principles. Less theological inquiry, more emphasis upon indoctrination. Cautious behavior of priests, proselytes, presbyters, preachers, popes, pater-nostra, holders of patrician entitlements, kohen, kahuna. Institutionalized patronage. Father-figures withhold praise, impose the law, deny conceit. Lengthy period of strict austerities imposed by higher study. May impose a sustained emphasis on fundamentalist interpretations of sacred scripture. Pragmatic approach to internationalism. Old professors teach rigid rules. Compressed output of graha-in-9. Fatherhood, indoctrination, obtainment of university doctorate or high-priesthood may be onerous or delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness. Budha lagnesha is a close friend of Shani. Therefore, this Shani Tour is usually smooth.

  10. If Kumbha = [bhava-10] as measured from Urisha indriya-lagna or measured from Urisha-Chandra [svabhava] of Shani benefits from austerity, order, discipline * Professional leadership necessary but burdensome. Respect for networked marketplace leaders. Social reputation may dwindle due to restricted venues for public display of capabilities. Weight of decision-making. Social reputation receives steady respect for maintaining dignified structures. Less enthusiasm for iconic roles yet more obligation to appear as a conventionalized icon of elite responsibility. Rarely any changes of career since the duty-roster is locked in place. Keep working. Efforts invested now can sustain the career during Shani's next tour via 11-goals. Supports lawful executive decisions within a period of relatively scarce resources. Shani dislikes praise. Therefore, little applause for work accomplished at the peak of the social pyramid. Enduring reputation for mature sobriety. Even if one does not normally fill a leadership role, social ordering duties may be imposed. Bureaucratic officials in public institutions must follow with strict rules and protocols. Authority is granted to one who follows the socially approved dictums, acting in the most mainstream fashion , while following the prescribed steps upward toward the sky. Compressed output of graha-in-10. Step-wise promotion, official investiture, command-post may be frugally accomplished without ceremony. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or desiccation. Because karma-sthāna = svabhava, this transit is efficient but dry. Shani = yogakaraka from Urisha indriya-lagna. Shani's transit to 10 brings dignity.

  11. If Kumbha - Ghata = bhava-11 as measured fromMesha indriya-lagna or measured from Mesha-Chandra * maintaining large-group networks requires enduring patience * The web of friendships remains reliable but it rarely expands. Tedious application of marketplace regulations. Social-participation movements build groundwork slowly. Temporary plateau in profits. Gains from frugal products that cater to the frugal lowest common denominator. Slow but steady, hardworking Shani-11 follows the rules. He rarely has big losses. Favors economic engagement with the proletariat. Oppression by popular fear of scarcity. No spectacular gains + no serious losses. Structural linkages hold steady. Older friendships are sustained . Existing allegiances between communities are reinforced. Rarely any new links but proven connections endure. Limits the flow of income.. Preference for proletarian friends. Obligatory assemblies. Attendance at large gatherings may be required. Compressed output of graha-in-11. Revenues, profits, earnings, achievements may be onerous or delayed. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark. Because vriddhisthāna = Shani's svabhava, this Shani Tour = smooth but disciplined and dry.

  12. If Kumbha = [bhava-12] as measured from Meena indriya-lagna or measured from Meena-Chandra * hampers the volume and frequency of spiritual shepherding. Fewer dreams. Night visions may contain less profound wisdom -- albeit perhaps more pragmatic guidance. Invisible pastoral figures may dry-up completely. Blocks travel to distant lands or the travel become onerous. Fewer sanctuary spaces welcome the meditator. Institutionally defined meditation practice may experience stronger discipline due to improved ability to manage terrestrial time schedules. Less secluded private artistic studio time available for reflective reverie. Time is regimented which negates creative work, Fewer new ideas in the research vision. Yet, stronger structure for completing existing research projects. Less intuition. Dimmed insight. Common sense desiccates the fertile imagination. Less prayer, less sleep , less contemplation, less privacy . Shani-Kumbha demands connective gridwork from the watching ancestors. Elder wisdom features material applicability and common sense. Compressed output of graha-in-12. Privacy, astral perception, restful sanctuary may be less available, or heavier workload to maintain them. The bhava ruled by graha-in-Hridroga are also limited temporarily by conditions of scarcity, rigidity, age, fear of consequences, cold, dark, or dryness.
