Ambitiously Seeking Privileged Status-Rank-Position [Makara]

When in kendra-1, kendra-7, or kendra-10, Rahu-Makara = a favorable placement for ambition to obtain prestigious social governance positions.

Quest for Elite Respect and Recognition in peak-hierarchy roles.

Risk-loving Rahu-Makara rashi = fascinated by esoteric executive empowerment and high-visibility public roles.

Irregular ambitious engagement in governance responsibilities.

  • Wikileaks 1971- Julian Assange [oratorical-heritage Śrāvaṇa-2] + ]Rahu-yuti-Mangala-uchcha]

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem [dramatizing Dhaniṣṭha-1] [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] through extraordinary publications, her remarkable and influential magazine, and a lifetime of political engagement, GS wreaked havoc upon brittle outdated social hierarchies that were indeed ready to crumble. Her personal ambition to challenge stereotypes of women as frivolous and unreliable [anti-Makara] opened the gates of professional opportunity [Rahu-Makara] for generations of women following her lead.

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Daughter of Destiny Benazir Bhutto [ministering Dhaniṣṭha-2]

Rahu Makara seeks privilege via rule-making roles. However, due to Risk-rewarding Rahu's illicit nature, His rule-making involves a good deal of rule-breaking along the way.

Great leap forward into Governing, Ordering, Regulatory Privilege

Find Professor Shani and know His effects in the radix and navamsha.

  • Over-reaching Rahu will amplify Shani's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Makara.

Structure, position, ranking, and social entitlement


Rahu = the smoke of ambition

Great hungry leap [Rahu] toward the top of the pyramid [Makara]

Risk-rewarding Rahu residing in lawful Makara = a complex and often ironic placement.

Risk-rewarding Rahu magnifies the desire for respectability and visibility. Rahu-Makara's goal-seeking great leap style = usually straightforwardly conventional in appearance. Appearing (Rahu appearances) in the guise of a respecter of hierarchies [Makara] Shri Rahu seems to be hardworking, attentive to bureaucratic detail, diligent in required behaviors, careful, and conventionally unassuming style of in personal deportment..

  • Rus-Pres 1952- First Person Vladimir Putin [political Dhaniṣṭha-1] global power reach in the worlds of asset containment, finance, and banking (Rahu drishti reaches Chandra-2). VVP dresses in conventional business garb, speaks without drama, and presents a pale, slight physique. Yet, his method is over-reaching, his ambition is unlimited, and his governance authority is questionably legal.

Relentless, possibly ruthless, step-wise obtainment of reputation and respect in large, hierarchical organizations .

Craves top of the hierarchy leadership prestige and executive privileges.

Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha-Rahu pushes aggressively, pro-actively for the win, whatever the cost. Finds opportunity in ultimate, high-stakes competition.

Rahu-ruled Shatataraka-Rahu * extra-Rahu-power * disrupts, captivates, entrances in matters of mixed-culture connectivity, futuristic science, boundary-breaching gridworks, ecologies of electrical impulse . Finds opportunity in ultimate, high-stakes community-crossovers and MIXED SYSTEMS.

Guru-ruled Purvabhadra Rahu broadens the scope of understanding of philosophical-scientific systems. Principled interruption of limiting boundaries, especially disruption of materialistic dogma, scientism, narrow ideologies. In 5, may challenge the boundaries that separate faith and politics.

Consumed with desire for iconic recognition at the peak of a stepwise ascendance.

  • Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Noble Maidens Catherine the Great [calculating Dhaniṣṭha-2] [Ghataka KSY]

  • Pakistan-PM 1953-2007 Daughter of Destiny Benazir Bhutto [calculating Dhaniṣṭha-2] * elected, deposed, elected, exiled, assassinated during Shani-Rahu bhukti


In Makara-Draco, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Shani-like law-enforcing characteristics.

Opportunistic Rahu may take risks in pursuit of Shani's conventional goals: one challenges the social systems of class, rank, and privilege in order to achieve recognition via class, rank, and privilege .

Desires to regulate the regulators .

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams [inventive-pioneering Śrāvaṇa-1] [Chandra-yuti-Rahu]

  • Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Noble Maidens Catherine the Great [Dhaniṣṭha-2] [Ghataka KSY] empress Catherine aimed to get to the top of the hierarchy and stay there. She succeeded by methods both fair and foul. Catherine hailed from a Prussian (German-speaking) aristocratic family and she was educated in continental European culture. Once ensconced in the Russian royal court, she vigorously promoted German cultural identity and values as fascinating privileged behaviors to which Russia's small elite class (Rahu-Makara-Draco privilege via hierarchy) could mimic for advantage. Yet, the vast majority of Russian-customs people under her rule were land-bound, illiterate feudal serfs. Except when making rules to govern the entire social pyramid, such as creating tax ranks; she had no understanding of the condition or hopes of land-bound peasantry; nor did she care (Ketu-12 Karkata = apathy toward the customary folk, socially invisible).

May achieve association with high ranks of government officialdom via unusual, irregular, or taboo relationships

Can become obsessed with capacity to prove a notable achievement of value to an entire society or civilization

to the point of taking individual credit for the work of a group

both of these lionized scientists failed to credit the contributions of their colleagues


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

Trajectory toward Prestige, via Expedient Route of *Appearing to* Conform to Conventional Standards

Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Makara. Rahu's disruptive and disorderly behavior is most unwelcome in the tightly regulated realms of Makara.

Rahu's Great Leap Forward must be cautious and careful. The typical starting scene is an institution , government, or other bureaucratic or conservatively operated environment.

The Rahu experience begins with some variety of social hierarchy (according to the bhava) which ranks and positions the native either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of law and order is required. The environment supports rigidly habitual and conventional behaviors, and the important actors typically hold rank of director, president, chief, supervisor, etc.

Routine from inside, routine from outside

One might engage in self-regulating behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction * akarshana *.

The contraction of the scope of the social personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as wearing an institutional uniform or needing to follow a prescribed hourly office.

One might start the cycle with a desire to conform to the expectations of legislative authorities and win the acceptance of the highest directors of the social programme.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the conformist, self-organizing event, there is continuous establishment of habit and routine . If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha, the craving for approved and lawful appearance may be punctuated by deaths or severe status loss such as divorce. The death or profound separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. The native is regulated into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to assume a rank, so that the class system is fully established in the new order.

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