Rahu-Thula - Vanika = Libra = the chalakaraka is driven by Ambition to Ally.

Seeks privilege via making deals, arrangements, agreements

  • CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner * Chandra-yuti-Rahu * Turner famously wheeled-and-dealed (Thula) his way into controlling positions in both the media-properties world and the landed-properties world.

Quest for Immortal (Rahu) Partnership (Thula).

In Thula rashi, risk-loving Rahu is fascinated by partner roles

  • Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini * Kala-Amrita Ananta- KSY promoted the false image (Rahu) of himself as an equal partner of Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler . However Hitler displayed contempt for Mussolini's passionate nature, and Mussolini was expediently liquidated.

Apparently (but perhaps not authentically) seeks opportunity via matters of equity, parity, fairness, balanced contracts, guarantees, warrantees, promises, covenants, bargains

Rahu-Thula opportunities in expedient interpretations of the fairness, legalistic bargaining.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson * Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * occupies the exploitive 6th-from-Chandra ** Self-taught attorney Johnson mounted a career-defining campaign in support of legal slavery. Based in purportedly proven Constitutional principles.this argument (6th) asserted that since the US-Constitution guarantees the right to property, and slaves are property, that whoever can buy a slave therefore has a Constitutionally guaranteed right to keep the slave.AJ's understanding of the law was often questioned by his better-trained peers. Nevertheless, his position was popular among his primary constituency = the southern poor white farmers and small tradesmen, who hoped to exploit (6) slave labor for their own economic advantage. Johnson was impeached by Congress for obstructing the Constitutional Amendment which permanently forbade slavery which had passed into law following the deadly Civil War. Johnson also had Rahu-Thula in 6th-from-Chandra, which encouraged him to find

Chalakaraka risk-rewarding Rahu can seduce both partners into pretentious peer-to-peer relationships.

Snake-like Naga gets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of Perfect Partnership . When quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, Naga then gets ejected via a pretentious agreement.

  • during WorldWar-2, Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini = Rahu-Thula-1 = seduced into the deceptive and ultimately false promise of equity in his Faustian Bargain deal with Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler . The equity never came and ultimately his "partner" Herr Hitler indeed imprisoned him.

'Apparently' sweet and balanced arrangements create the tantalizing scenario for Rahu's passionate, self-promoting attempts to bargain, negotiate, and wheel-and-deal until one has self-elevated to elite partner status.

It looks gracious, equable and equitable at first. Yet Rahu's seductive amplification of the quest for the perfect architectural balance in the balanced diplomacy narrative of Thula may become a consuming behavior in the life of the native.

Dramatic increase in Zukra Mahadasha to peak in the Zukra-Zukra svabhukti period and again in sub-periods of Rahu or Zukra.

Other instigators of the critical rhetoric include gochara Rahu transit to any of the key lagna, especially Rahu traveling via the kalatra-bhava or the radical lagna.

A peaceful life requires maintenance of a steady determination to accept the imperfections, injustices and inequities of human relationships.

Yet Rahu-Thula's compulsive urge to renegotiate may present a significant challenge to marital harmony, as the native follows Rahu's directive to constantly re-evaluate the partner and the alliance.

  • The Tower 1865-1939 William Butler Yeats * uttama-Shani-yuti-Rahu-5 wrote extensively of his many disappointments in love affairs, rejected proposals, long-steady commitments (uttama-Shani) to those partners he desired even when they resisted him for years - and ultimately, social mobility (Rahu) gained through the literary expression of Rahu's drama which involved him with women aristocratic social ranks (uttama-Shani)

Typically, Rahu-Thula aspires to self-elevate into an elite social level by proving His extraordinary alliance-crafting capabilities. risk-rewarding Rahu's bhava is instrumental in His ascent.

The mate often does possess some elite credentials. Yet, for insatiable Rahu, whatever value = on offer can never be enough. If Zukra is weak, Rahu-Thula can prevent marriage due to chronic dissatisfaction with all candidates.

Even business partners and professional collegial and peer-advising relationships suffer from Rahu's ambitions to keep moving ahead to a better quality alliance.

One possible exception =

  • Zukra svakshetra in mulatrikona Thula yuti Rahu in bhava-4 where Zukra enjoys a panchamahapurusha yoga and receives dig-bala. In that rare case, despite a chronic internal narrative of ambitious dissatisfaction, the marriage relationship is happy and so is the home-life overall.

If a Rahu-Thula person is a part of your life, be sure to grant a wide berth to their restless dissatisfaction in partnership. No one alliance will ever meet the chalakaraka's ambitious expectations. When the discontented native says "it's not you; it's me" Rahu-Thula is telling its truth.

Great leap forward into Alliance-Building Privilege

Find Professor Zukra and know His effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify Zukra's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Tula.

Balance and design entitlement

  • Rahu magnifies a passion for good design, harmonious relationships, and social order.

  • Will take risks, with surprising energy, to achieve their goal of beautifully balanced, equitable social arrangements.

  • Can become obsessed with formal aesthetic issues, balancing multiple relationships, and keeping up a flawless public appearance.

In Thula, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Zukra-like balance and design characteristics.


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

Trajectory via Contracts, Agreements, and Deals

Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Thula. The typical starting scene is a relationship match agreement, the contract attorney's office, a brokerage or site of deal-making.

The Rahu experience begins with some variety of contract negotiation (according to the bhava) which balances one' interests with the interests of others either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of the delicate art of diplomacy is required.

The environment supports crafting of detailed agreements , and the important actors typically hold rank of attorney, solicitor, barrister, match-maker, broker, et-cetera.

Yoking from inside, yoking from outside

Rahu-Thula might engage in courtship and mating behavior driven by sudden, obsessive attraction to an unusual type of partner.

The gracious beautification of the personality integrity or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as a marriage negotiation or professional involvement in an important wealth-making deal.

Rahu-Thula might start the cycle with a desire to experience more sense pleasure and accumulate more mutually held wealth.

  • Pope-264 John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla was 22 years old when his Rahu Mahadasha started. His father was still living and young Lolek was enjoying the single life of a student, performing in theatrical plays and going to parties. But after his father died toward the end of the Rahu-Rahu svabhukti, Lolek committed his life to the Roman-rite Catholic priesthood. His community activism and ability to network socially with people from a variety of backgrounds Rahu in bhava-11.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the socially acknowledged (Thula = 10th-from-10th) contract-making event, there is continuous development of the balancing, harmonizing, and social cooperation skills.

Rahu-Thula = an excellent placement for the professional negotiator, mediator, or arbitrator who deals with polluted or illicit matters. In marriage, it indicates attraction * akarshana * to a partner who is unconventional according to the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of the ethnicity of birth, but essentially harmonious and always ready to negotiate new terms.

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha

  • the onset of the period of intensive brokering (18 years for the major period and varying lengths for each bhukti and pratyantardasha era) may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce from a previous partnership. A death or abrupt separation can serve as the 'opening bell' of this mahadasha.

  • The initial breakage can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent to get moving toward the higher privileges, although Typically, at the time of Rahu + Maraka loss of partner, the native blames the partner or 'circumstances beyond our control'. However psychically it is the native 's ambition to catapult oneself into the higher powered realm which eradicates previous partnership to make way for new deals and a new trajectory toward the top.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. Rahu-Thula = educated into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to take a vow , such as a consecration of marriage or holy orders. 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.
