  • [materialistic theology]

  • ideological beliefs placed above the rule of law

  • faith in hierarchical status

  • principled understanding of class ranking

  • false cheerfulness

  • socially conventionalized paradigm of belief

  • optimisticly corrupted convictions

Belief in Human Development via human social-material hierarchy

  • the procedural, regulated, strictly lawful, hierarchical, step-wise, ranked bureaucracy of Makara rashi = a frustrating and rather mis-guided environment for priestly Brihaspati

  • Guru sees Makara-pati Shani as samagraha = neutral

  • Professor Shani sees tenant Guru as samagraha = neutral.

  • results depend largely upon Guru's bhava and the character of Shani

There is typically some cognitive dissonance associated with any graha in debilitation.

Guru-Makara believes that it is possible to be blessed by a generous divinity with the respect and regard attributed to holders of hierarchical rank. Guru-Makara places religious faith in the power of status objects, social visibility and public reputation.

The result is often a culture of conspicuous consumption, significant expansion of inventory of status objects. In the modern culture, these objects are typically designer bags, McMansions, prestige-brand automobiles and other /bling/

In earlier cultures the status objet du jour might have been a cold, smelly stone] castle [Makara] built upon an /important/ hill -- or a reliquary of saints bones [Makara] that could grant hierarchical standing to a place of worship.

General substitution of cold, old, stiff, stony, bony, greyish, lifeless, hierarchically-ranked material objects for warm, expanding, naaturally unranked, authentic experience of the presence of the Divine. Faith in thing written or stamped upon paper.

Misguided development of exterior social-material social structures. Misplaced emphasis on human social-hierarchical status acquisition, public reputation, and social lawfulness of human behavior.

A secret-keeper and murderer on a stunning scale of an estimated 20 million deaths during his regime [some historians claim 40-million] Stalin's nefarious, genocidal killings were masked as " disappearances" [Shani-12]. No questions were asked.

Underdevelopment of the understanding in matters of spiritual law, to the extent that one becomes so profoundly engaged with human social hierarchy that one cannot recognize the presence of dharma.

/Champagne taste on a beer budget/

Profound faith can of course work miracles.

However, one does not believe right down to the authentic core of conviction. There is typically some weighty, pessimistic tagged emotion of Makara accompanying the superficial positive belief which blocks the true faith.

The philosophical undertow of competing beliefs (one positive, one negative) sabotages the true faith of the assertion and the positive belief succumbs to the negative emotional expectations.

Thus after much doctrinal-ideological blustering the person cannot fulfill the expectations of their beliefs.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James K. Polk [materialistic theology] After a /born again/ religious conversion, JKP professed a deep, self-defining commitment to his Methodist Christian doctrine. Yet with dharmesha-9 [nīcha-Guru-yuti-Ketu]in karma-sthāna, JKP's announced governing policies [Guru-3 announcements] were hypocritical and dissonant.

  • JKP earned his wealth from plantations worked by 50 slaves. He bought and sold slaves' spouses and children. JKP declared [3] that he believed deeply in Manifest Destiny, adoctrine is which God told the superior European settlers to move westward by enforcing their superior culture and enslaving those below them. Claiming [3] to be deeply devout Christians, JKP and his influential wife Sarah Polk declared that slavery was theologically correct.

However, if [nīcha-bhanga] the placement is extremely powerful and all hopes may be realized.

Tolerance for bribery, corruption, and institutional dysfunction.

  • UK-Queen 1926-2022 Elizabeth-2 + [uchcha-Kuja opp Chandra]

[nīcha] -Guru's problems happen when generous warm humanistic philosophy is substituted for constrictive cold, hard, pragmatic mature experience and adherence to regulations.

Understands that governments and huge corporations may respond to humanistic appeals. Often interested in humanistic, spiritually guided, large-scale improvements to existing government structure.

  • POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower [inventive-pioneering Śrāvaṇa-1] [2] [lagnesha] Financed entirely with government funding [Makara-2] DDE's passion project /the world's greatest highway system/ was built in the USA over a period of eight years. The massive spending [2] was justified on a misleading claim [nicha-Guru] as a military necessity [Makara necessity]. However, there was little evidence that using slow trucks to carry huge bombs [Guru huge] would defend the USA in any known type of invasion. In fact, the missiles were more likely to explode en route, killing innocent citizens. In the end, the military use never materialized [nicha-Guru] but American commerce was indeed greatly benefitted by the transcontinental federal highway system.

However, the principled restructuring may have unforeseen consequences or be unrealistic.

He was obsessed [Rahu] with the structure [Makara] that governed " the means of production" as defined in Marxist theory. His massive restructuring programs spanned many decades and killed an estimated 20-million people, many from state-violence torture and starvation. Stalin's principles generated a reign of terror which harmed the very workers that were supposed to be helped.

The longer CdG governed, the more frustrated he became with the incipient infighting of French legacy [Makara] politics. [nīcha] Guru activates 5-politics + 2-entreasurement.

Past-life carry-forward wisdom about statutory law s and government, structure of large hierarchical social organizations, and methods for creating an orderly environment.

Believes in following the rules for attainment of rank and respect within one's birth culture. Conventional viewpoint. Admits no alternative rules.

Tolerant of diversity and supportive of expanded opportunity for all members of the system, but is a reformer, not a revolutionary. Makara is a somewhat boring or restrictive location for Guru.

Reduces the self-confidence and minimizes faith in spiritual wisdom, but expands confidence in the rule of law and enhances trust in the government. Strong believer in hard work and discipline.

Not a slacker.

Takes a slow, patient, and determined approach [Makara] toward achieving Guru's goals of wisdom, expansion, procreation, and generosity toward all. If Shani is comfortably placed, the native can be materially successful. Will usually find a comfortable niche in government service, where one is will not receive the big salaries but rather will enjoy the satisfaction of public service.

Cheerful and friendly as a rule when gainfully employed, ideally within the large, rule-driven, government-oriented organization. Does well in military settings, is well-liked within tightly regulated structures.

Should other graha be weakly placed, one may prefer to live off government aid or be subsidized by charity or social-security networks. One may be atheistic but tends more toward ritualized social-approved performance.

the native 's understanding of religious truth is limited to the practice of consciously and publicly conforming with conventional religious behaviors. One generally subscribes to a mainstream humanistic belief system.

Physically, associated with over-optimistic expansion [typically, athletic over-extension] of the knees in the human body.

Special comments re: Guru-Makara - Draco-2 for the Dhanus indriya-lagna + Kanya-Chandra nativity:

2nd marriage consequences for [nīcha] Guru-2?

Yes the [nīcha] debilitated Guru Jupiter is indeed a concern for second marriage. The keynote of Guru-Makara is "over-confident" . Guru is confident in a positive and optimistic style by nature, and as a general rule Guru brings a bright golden light of divine wisdom into everything that He does.

However, when Brihaspati is debilitated Professor Guru becomes optimistic about making positive changes via wisdom in environments which really don't allow much change because they are designed to be rule-bound and tightly structured. Guru Makara wants to expand in naturally rigid and fixed places, results present a growth-challenge to craft a balance between the world of material reality and the world of beliefs.

Specifically, Guru-Makara-2 gets people in polarizing catalysis by being over-confident about good-willed, generous, or overly expansive applications of money-management, such as overly optimistic belief that one can meet legal deadlines for various required money payments, but characteristically the reserves are not present to allow for the payment.

Sometimes there are agents permitted to manipulate the banked monies who are doing borderline legal interpretations of the financing and real-estate investors are lucky to get out with their original principle despite very broad beliefs of the managers about some banking scheme being so beneficial for all.

No one gets seriously hurt since this is Jupiter after all!

Yet, the typical homework-problems = bankers, singers, cattle herds, food storage, art collections, and other portable wealth as well as, in your case, real estate since Guru for you rules the bandhu bhava governing shelters, vehicles, boats, and farms.

For one in the wifely-companion with Guru-2 nativity, the second husband can be a very well-meaning financier who wants to follow the governance rules but whose natural love of humanity causes bending a rule here, arule there until the original hoard is gone or dwindled down.

Often monies supposed to be banked are diverted to personal use. If a cattle herder, the better part of the herd may be consumed for food (2) based on the false hope that spring can bring abundant calves, but spring is normal not too fertile, and the herd dwindles due to feeding the people rather than the cows.

It can be a rent-collector who does not insist on collecting the rent"until times are better" or a vacation resort developer who builds a gazillion dollar development on government land"believing" that eventually he will be permitted to buy the land and represents himself as the owner of the land. Then when the govt lease expires investors find out that the value of the investment is much less only the buildings and not the land beneath it and furthermore the govt can repossess at any time.

Guru gives a fault of over-optimism, not low character. the person is of good moral character.

Yet, in Makara where following the conventions, rules, and protocols of conservative society is required, Guru is too permissive and too hopeful resulting in improper use of funds, reduced value of investments, lost savings, and a cycle of inflated expectations that peaks during periods of Guru.

In the 2nd bhava of 2nd marriage, the 2nd male life-partner for the female is likely to be a banker or resource-manager of this description, with a tendency to Pollyanna optimism, involvement in real estate financing, and prone to giving inspirational speeches about work ethic and savings while actually lacking the personal discipline to accept austerities when required in scarcer times. The first husband represented by Guru may also partake of the characteristic always best-case-scenario thinking unbalanced by too little regulatory or hardship sensibility .

Although very nice people, Guru-Makara - Draco folk (unless corrected by nīcha-bhanga ) often don't quite know what they're doing professionally due to a habit of replacing governance rules [Makara] with selected teachings of faith [Guru].

Being a capably disciplined person yourself, you can probably keep such a husband on track and help bring him to his financial senses when a more pragmatic view is required.

False Piety,

Guru-figures, preachers, doctrinal teachers = fail to deliver compassion

Realistic Pragmatism where spiritual awareness is needed


Social Materialism in sacred teachings

Guru-Makara - Draco can make pious displays of faith which may be misunderstood or suspected to be materialism masquerading as wisdom. External dogmatic [Guru] social positioning (Makara - Draco) may seem to be only a surface veneer that barely covers the underlying materialism of Makara.

Faith may be insincere or ineffective due to a fundamental positivistic materialism.

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama * [nīcha] Guru-yuti-Shani-10 * A lifetime adherent of Christian doctrine, bHO has suffered public relations problems consistently in regard to the style and content of his religious catechism ([nīcha] Guru). Political opponents cultivated an insinuation that BHO was raised in the Islamic faith. This illusion was increased in the public mind by his father's Kenyan ancestry and his mother's Indonesian second-husband. Another issue was that the Christian preacher who was BHO's public spiritual adviser [Guru] had issued vulgar, incendiary racist statements. The preacher's hostility was so compromising to BHO's inclusivity claims that BHO had to cease [Shani] that doctrinal guidance [Guru] relationship.

[Guru-Makara] may engage in convenient religious posturing, appearing as a great church-goer and pontificating moralist. By doctrine, one may be a well-wisher to all. Yet, in social relationships, one prefers the rich and well-positioned. [nīcha] Guru supports a worthy cause if socially ranked persons are expected to attend the fundraising party. One gives a charitable donation, for purpose of income-tax discount. Materialism creates a none-too-subtle hypocrisy. Hypocrisy can lead to discrediting and disgrace when false piety and dogmatism are exposed.

[nīcha] Guru = typically unaware (or in denial) about the depth of falsity and corruption which debilitates the paradigm of belief.

One is rarely disturbed by the lack of true faith and the substitution of materialism or consumerism to replace the missing element of autentic Divine guidance. How to miss that which was never known? Brihaspati in the [nīcha] may preach in rationalizations which belie compassion invoking "the will of God" to promote social oppression. Dogma such as "Just War" or "apartheid" are typical products of this ideological doctrinal social program. Indeed, Guru-Makara = karaka for a false religious teacher.

Q: I am entering the mahadasha of Guru


in bhava-8,

in the middle of mid-life (I'm approaching age sixty).

What should I expect?

How to navigate the difficulties of these sixteen years under a nichha graha?


[nīcha] Guru-Makara sends a Contradictory set of instructions, which represent a contradictory set of programmatic beliefs and expectations in the mind. Guru is an"easy" graha full of wisdom and inclusive generosity.

Randhra-bhava-8 = a difficult place * dushthamsha * Surging with catastrophic changes and knowledge of the Conditions of dematerialization. It does not however contain the time-triggers for death. Graha in bhava-8 are simply the descriptors of the conditions which must come together to create the proper scene for permitted departure.

Guru's ease in the harsh house of sudden, unexpected but indeed cyclic change and upheaval can be good news or bad news.

It can be good news if you can use the wisdom of age and self-management to deploy Guru's optimism as leverage against the pessimistic"realism"and fixation on statutory law (denying or ignoring divine law) that is often found in found in Shani-ruled environments.

Guru does good work in the svabhava of Kuja, although the nichha factor means that one must be VERY careful in handling" other people's money" .

It can be bad news in the early years, when [nīcha] Guru's over-confidence and tendency to substitute optimism for skill can lead to bad-faith investments into pooled money funds. Due diligence can be lacking, causing the native to expect easy results when much more effort is realistically required. [nīcha] Guru-Makara = also a dead ringer for"tax problems " caused by the over-confident native who skipped paying their taxes because one"didn't think it would be a problem" . Makara rules the statutory law , and failing to attend to the consequences of this law can give some unpleasant results.

For Mithuna lagna, Guru has lots of good potential to be developed. Guru activates two kendra (7 and 10) from kundali indriya-lagna , and also two kendra (4 and 7) from the Moon. That means Guru's realm of expectation controls several Pillars of the social personality: 4 (home and education) and 10 (profession and public respect) and - double-effect - 7 (marriage and contracts).

When improvements are made to the beliefs behind Guru's behavior, you'll get the most improvement results in the areas of marriage - partnership -contracts - agreements and the resolution of conflict through legal process.

[nīcha] Guru = Misplaced Optimism

One suggestion is to consider the discipline of curbing the instinct to gloss over a legally serious situation with some pleasure-drug or platitude. Treat any situation that involves shared assets (bhava-8) as " serious " on the material plane.

This is a bit tricky and can only be done by a mature self-knowing person, but for those who have reached sixty or have a strong Shani influence in the nativity, it is realistic.

The task is to not let rashi-pati Shani's fear of change // enable // the dysfunctional habit of claiming that if everything superficially looks orderly and in control, that it really is enough to just // keep a lid on it //

. Admit corruption when it is felt, and honor the feelings first with a commitment to make the changes as required, not sweep them under the rug.

Allow that inner voice which knows when something is out of order in the world of statutory law . This is Makara, the law of the Jungle, applying to statutory law only not the higher divine law of the gods. It's statutory law and human consequences here!

  • It is not recommended to indulga in False Trust, which is the knee-jerk instinct to assert that" everything is fine" without first seeing material evidence that things really are fine. Ask for confidential, professional advice on situations that have been glossed over with drugs or platitudes (mental drugs!) in the past.

  • In your spiritual explorations of tantric, magical processes of transformation and change, plain speaking and staying close to facts will be a good policy."Half-job" Makara-Guru has a tendency to gloss over inconsistencies.

  • In the project of describing the magical relationships on the pattern"as above, so below" , focus on the Below. Due to Guru's wide perspective, you are good with the Above, but completing the clear and plain-spoken connection to the Below will make your knowledge accessible to normal people.

  • Rigorously avoid platitudes, exaggerations intended to raise enthusiasm or prove magnificence, false assurances that" everything is all right" , pontifications, pollyanna-ism, and any reference to the spiritual"above" which is not tied to an equal-and-opposite manifestation in the material" below" .

  • Guru provides natural and sincere compassion, generosity in sharing secret knowledge, and philosophical acceptance of the turning of the wheel of birth and death. Those are all wonderful assets. However, it is a management task to ensure that the broad acceptance and inclusiveness of Guru do not mask the harsh consequences of statutory law . To pretend that the hunt will be successful (bhava-8 is the tantrik hunter) without extremely close attention to the directions of the guiding forces is misleading or worse.

At birth, the [nīcha] Guru often suffers a lack of Accountability.

This deficiency is pre-incarnationally planned and can be corrected during the present lifetime.

Lack of accountability to material reality is the calling card of [nīcha] Guru. If, in maturity, one can institute a program of accountability to the material truth regardless of the survival fear that truth might provoke, or the work it might cause to address the problem in a sensible manner, then very many areas of your life will directly benefit.

  • For Mithuna lagna, these areas are home and properties (4), partnerships and contracts (7), and professional dignity (10).

  • One can experience liberation from the dysfunctional habit of glossing over inconsistencies (usually with a chemical drug, or mental drug like a denial or a platitude) and gain credibility with self and others. False optimism will be eliminated, while reactive fear which causes excessive realism (pessimism) will also be calmed.

  • When [nīcha] Guru's tendency toward psychological numbing and denial is replaced with attention to reality and skillful step-wise action, you won't sound like a tantrik-pretender crackpot or a sensationalist, someone who is pretending to get results from superficial happy beliefs.

Rather, you will earn the credibility of a hands-on professional who can"profess " the steps taken to connect the spiritual to the material, the belief to the outcome, the expectation to the manifestation. Once you can make these connections without skipping any steps, you will be a sincere and authentic Healer.
