Careers in Divinity and Doctrine, philosophy, university governance, cultural restructuring, public education, global affairs

  • POTUS-19 Railroad Strike 1822-1893 Rutherford B. Hayes + [uchcha] Chandra was a committed agent of cultural restructuring. The key accomplishments of his 3-time Ohio governorship and 19th USA presidency included passage of the 15th amendment ensuring that ex-slave adult males could vote, and reducing the harms of the Chinese Exclusion act.

traditionalists rather than innovators in matters of sacred doctrine , while typically generous and inclusive humanists in personal charitable practice

Positive graha in bhava-10 = uplifted public reputation. Long-lasting public interest in the life-doings of personality with Guru-10 .

One becomes a recognized figure in the panorama of one's region, country, culture.


  • Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini bandesha-4 + yuvati-pati-7 Guru in 10, yuti dhanapati-2 + dharmesha-9 Shukra. Following the dictum of Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx that 'religion is the opiate of the people', Mussolini was a sworn ideological opponent of organized religion. However Guru bandesha-4 in 10 was obliged to promote the folk culture of the Italian peasantry (4). Further, the pressure to form contractual bonds for governance purposes is very strong coming not only from yuvati-pati-7 Guru but also from Shukra-10 agreements.

  • In BM's ideologically-driven process of authoritarian cultural restructuring, while craving absolute power, BM saw fit to accommodate [Shukra] rather than destroy the historically powerful Roman-rite Catholic Church, and Il Papa declared the Dictator to bethe man sent to us by Providence. In this way, the avowed religion-hater BM developed a career in religion.

In bhava-10, Guru-Mithunaya suggests governance via broad scope of information distribution, via broadcast media, via propaganda

More conservative doctrinal views mixed with sincere desire for improved government and socially progressive leadership. Expresses expansion and inclusiveness in the governing or publicly symbolic style. Handles public attention with aplomb.

Guru's exuberance = toned-down in bhava-10 , where the business of public social ranking and institutional governance is gets philosophized and somewhat un-structured under the influence of inclusive Brihaspati. Still, if other 10th-related factors are favorable (notably karmesha and lord of 10th navamsha) the professional career benefits from wide-vista, bright visibility of 10.

Professor Guru can produce stressful conflict for Tula nativities, Yet, he also facilitates publication, promotional advertising, media-messaging information, announcements, and every type of cohort-ensemble production. Much depends on Guru's location by bhava and His drishti upon other graha.

Brihaspati being 3-6 lord for Tula indriya-lagna, [uchcha] Guru-Karkata in bhava-10 is characteristically restless and argumentative.

Yet Guru-10 may bring the Thula native into high-visibility roles. If Chandra is strong, one may hold broadly recognized social positions.

Much exposure to public inquiry. Guru-10 represents a well-known and generally respected public figure.

  • Principia Mathematica 1872-1970 philosopher Bertrand Russell lost both of his parents to illness in his very early childhood. Mom died his age 1.5 ++ Dad decease when little Bertrand = age 4. He was raised by his paternal grandparents, whose Victorian morals constricted him. Yet, BR's safety and shelter during a controversial career in social activisim, his aristocratic titles, and his substantial inheritance were protected by a splendid Guru-[uchcha] 10 = leadership receives public protections.

Part of the respectability profile is affiliation with a catechism of sacred doctrine that is inclusive in nature. (But naturally if Guru is impeded by Shani or deranged by Ketu, the inclusivity may be overwhelmed by the agenda of the other graha)

The public may believe that Guru-10 knows more than one really does, but Guru-10 is happy to sustain the public's faith in their iconic wisdom. One meets the public queries with a confident smile.

From bhava-10, the drishti of Brihaspati extends to bhava-2, bhava-4, and bhava-6. Benefits stored wealth, accumulation of lands and properties, access to education, and access to medicines.

As 11th-from-12th, bhava-10 provides gains from foreign travel, meditation, private imagination , and loss of individual ego-membrane identity.

Female's partner karaka = Guru

Often, the feminine nativity meets her life partner in a public leadership setting. The partner's identification with social responsibility and symbolic role modeling is important to her, and the partner's ability to maintain public dignity may form the basis of the union.

  • First marriage for female is characterized by attainment of social position and leadership roles in the hierarchy. The social reputation is enhanced, and professional standing is gained. The spouse holds a high position.

Regardless of the external circumstances of the union, the female generally retains respect for the scope and influence of the duties performed by the spouse.

A teacher-preacher with high public visibility .

Respected (10) for the breadth of one's wisdom [Guru].

The inspirational educational [Guru] style may vary according to the governing rules, the philosophies, the culture and the technology, but regardless of the details this person has a wise top-down perspective .

Due to the honor accrued to knowledgeable teachers, high social regard toward one's wisdom lineage can hold the public's respectful attention.

  • 300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika BV Raman matured into an internationally respected teacher of Jyotisha lineage knowledge

Generous in public service. Less prone to me-first thinking so one may not solicit all the accolades.

  • Students and beneficiaries of their wise advice usually show loyal appreciation, and there is some opportunity to develop a cult of personality, especially if Guru is strong.

  • Special ability to deal with large educational undertakings and cultural celebrations.

May however expect some problems related to the discomfort of government forces with higher truths.

Guru = natural lord of dharma bhava = the dissolving, draining 12th from 10. Government (10) is a conservative and often punitive agency.

Guru's expansive, inclusive, generous approach to education and philosophical truth can trigger a conservative backlash.

  • Pope John Paul II 1978-2005 = put into Nazi concentration camp


QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari comments on Guru in bhava-10

"an inner ideal. ... free to pursue what you believe in.

  • You can be a good counselor, an ethical professor, an occultist who studies the future, or an affectionate parent and friend. ... much affection that shows.

  • You may lack the pure quality of humility somewhat at times due to your good qualities.

You may be more traditionally religious rather than esoteric.

  • Socially you try to be protective and sincere rather than a fiery leader with a cause.

Versatile, flourishing, success from the beginning, reputed, happy, rich, famous, blessed with friends and conveyance. ... chance of danger in the 34th year....
