Snake-like Naga gets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of theatrical charisma.

If Rahu occupies bhava 1-3-6-10 or 11, and His Professor Surya is strong, the brilliant power of personal charm can maintain throughout all supportive dasha periods.

  • Rahu-Simha also gains strength in bhava-5 for royal, theatrical, creative, adventurous, speculative, or gaming purposes.

If Surya is weak however, when quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, masked Naga may be ejected by legitimate celebrity privilege-holders when His pretentious speculation is exposed.

Great leap forward into Celebrity Privileges

Find lord Ravi and know His effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify brilliant Ravi's radiance, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Simha.

Rahu-Simha takes a Great Leap Forward via political, fashion, entertainment, speculative, and theatrical performance charisma.

If Shani-yuti-Rahu, opportunity for illegitimate or deceptive practices - one may be either the perpetrator or the victim, but the context is political-theatrical and risk-rewarding Rahu's goal is fame.

Entitlement to enter the realm of political power without having earned the privilege. May marry into political or theatrical standing, gamble one's way in via games and speculation (including political campaigns) or otherwise leap into a much higher celebrity rank than suggested by the station of birth.

Rahu magnifies the confidence that one's political or creative empowerment has been obtained by legitimate means.

  • One may become completely fascinated by one's own trajectory from obscure beginnings into the ranks of privilege and power, energized by charismatic intelligence and theatrical entertainments.

  • Rahu mimics the enchanting enlightening genius of Surya.

Desires center-stage attention, recognition of one's inherent genius.

  • The issue with Rahu = inherent intelligence is not possible. Rahu is a poseur who merely adopts the mask of royalty-celebrity in order to usurp the power of the central position. The ground of power is inauthentic and Risk-rewarding Rahu's flourish is typically mere showmanship.

  • Can become extremely focused on glamorous companions, celebrity events, et-cetera.

  • Can become obsessed with personal appearance, media handling, radiance of the public image.

Rahu-Simha= while great attention is paid to the building public confidence in one's entitlement to hold center-stage roles, Simha's natural radiance is not bright, clear, and healing but rather smoky, diffused, and potentially toxic.

  • Nevertheless a strong graha yuti Rahu or a positive placement for Surya can contribute a more authentic basis for divine confidence and the deceptive charm of Rahu can lose its malicious qualities becoming a mere background distraction.

In Simha, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Surya-like political and theatrical characteristics.

Mahadasha of Rahu for Rahu-Simha
  • General trends, environments, experiences of the Rahu mahadasha

Trajectory via Celebrity, Artistic Performance, Personal Charisma, Creative Intelligence, Politics, Fashion, Glamour, and Games

  • Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Simha.

  • Rahu's disruptive and disorderly behavior is most unwelcome in the center-stage, polished performance realms of Simha.

  • Rahu's Great Leap Forward must be supremely confident. The typical starting scene is a political event, a theatrical role, engagement with children and games, or some variety of stage performance.

The Rahu experience begins with center-stage attention (according to the bhava) which dramatically highlights one either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of brilliant genius is required. The environment supports flamboyant, fashionable behaviors, and the important actors typically hold rank of stage director, political advisor, or master of games.

Performance from inside, applause from outside

the native might engage in self-flattering behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction to an unusual source of ego-validation.

The centering of the scope of the social personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as taking a dramatic role in a stage play or attending a celebrity event with royalty.

Also one may accept the role of pre-eminent male [Surya] in a family, accepting the central role of Father (Ravi) in exotic circumstances, such as becoming the romantic lover [Simha] of a women whose children lack a father.

The male native with Rahu-Simha often finds that fatherhood has some barrier-bending, taboo-twisting attributes, both in regard to his childhood experience of men who are fathers and one's own fathering trajectory.

  • One might start the cycle with a desire to get more attention.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the initial urgently-seeking-attention event, there is continuous development of the fashionable, literary, theatrical, performance capabilities.

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha, the craving for validation of one's attractiveness and talent may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce. The death or tragic separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent to keeping catapulting forward to higher levels of privilege.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. the native is coronated into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to assume a royal role, so that the audience attention remains focused on the center of political power.

One needs to acquire or remember elements of this new actor's worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
