Kumbha indriya-lagna [Aquarius, Ghata]

Ghata is the best rashi for Rahula, since the overarching goal of all graha located in Kumbha rashi = regulated participation in vast networks of community and economy.

Passion for massive systems.

Rahu seeks to "get ahead" via large-scale networks, interlinked communities, and the economic marketplace.

Expedient Rahu's characteristic willingness to utilize any person, place, or thing as a launching platform for His greater privilege does bring benefit to the network.

Rahu = a champion of the oily-smoky ones: untouchable, polluted, outsider.

In particular, rahu-Kumbha assists the development of civilization via increased economic participation of previously ostracized social classes as well as the scientific participation of previously non-paradigmatic concepts and ideas.

Rahu = co-lord of Kumbha , along with Shani

Mask of the No-Limits Super-Achiever

  • POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt [distributive-collectivist Varuna-3] [1-personality, unique appearance] TR produced a relentless shimmering illusion of heroic showmanship. The populace was dazzled by stories of his marvelous adventures, often written by TR himself -- or by friendly journalists in his social network [Kumbha].

  • While projecting the appearance [Rahu] of a superhuman goal-achiever [Kumbha] TR often used his time in elected office (1901-1909) to pursue whimsical passion-projects [Rahu passion] unrelated to the job he was supposed to be doing. The pressing concerns of National Governance were sometimes interesting to POTUS-26, and sometimes not.

In Kumbha, the chalakaraka = motivated by a great Ambition to Make Connections.

Quest for Linkage.

Rahu-Kumbha is fascinated by esoteric and often illicit (or partly illicit) systems roles.

Rahu seduces the native into pretentious economic-gain relationships.

Great leap forward into Networking, system-developing, social-progressive Privilege

Rahu = co-lord of Kumbha, along with Shani.

Generally Rahu gives better results in Kumbha.

To assess the prospects for risk-rewarding Rahu's "success " in reaching a higher level of privilege than Rahu had at risk-rewarding Rahu's station at birth, via the community-economy-networking methods of Kumbha, it is necessary to find Professor Shani and know Shani's effects in the radix and navamshar.

Rahu will amplify Shani's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Kumbha.

Scientific, conceptual, ideological structure and large-system regulatory entitlement

  • Rahu magnifies the desire to promote a visionary worldview, showing the connections between all things.

  • Often working at cross-purposes with their own goals;

  • promoting a viewpoint that they personally don't believe, because they are hooked into a network of people who pay them to serve as a mouthpiece for the worldview.

Contradictory folk. Their vision may be authentic or pretentious.

  • If they're making a good profit from promoting an excluding or negative ideology , look out.

In Kumbha, rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Shani-like social networking and ideological association characteristics.


Often a very sensitive nervous system.

Heightened awareness of class distinctions, which Rahu will then exploit to His advantager.

Rahu expedience driven by the excitement of immediate opportunity, coupled with inability to accepts conditions or restraints

Rahu-Kumbha is an excellent placement for

  • professional labor union organizer,

  • leader of regulated, lawful social-change movements

  • orchestrator of rallies and gatherings

  • fund-raisers

  • economic development strategists

  • scientific testing and networks of testers who share results

Rahu gains extra power in Kumbha. Rahu-Kumbha produces strong desire for connected, orderly scientific pursuits involving ambitiously wild, reckless, disruptive or exotic behaviors.

  • according to Wikipedia, POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt [distributive-collectivist Varuna-3] [6 war, disease, accusations, animal-killing]. TR conducted an African Safari in Mar-1909 - June 1910 during his Budha-Rahu bhukti."" All told, roosevelt and his companions killed or trapped over 11,397 animals " Although this scale of carnage is considered vile by today's standards, in TR's day it was praised as an exciting contribution to the Smithsonian Institution, where the carcasses would be studied for science [Rahu-Kumbha].

Rahu tends to improperly mix social categories, but this irregular behavior may succeed materially if Rahu is strongly placed

  • Yogaville 1914-2002 Swami Satchidananda [philosophical-doctrinal Varuna-1] [Rahu-yuti-Chandra]

  • Moral Majority 1933-2007 Rev. Jerry Falwell [Rahu in bhava-10] [Dhaniṣṭha-4]. JLF mixed two un-mix-ables = religion and government in USA. A self-styled preacher, falwell rose to national influence via electronic [Kumbha] communications networks in radio and television. JLF controlled a large marketplace investment fund [Kumbha] obtained via tax-free religious donation monies [Shani-9 rules Rahu]. Risk-rewarding Rahu illicitly channeled these inappropriate [Rahu] funds into the political campaign organizations supporting the 1980 election + 1984 re-election of Ronald Reagan


  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci [indoctrinated-optimistic Varuna-1] [Rahu in bhava-10] famously moved from ambition to ambition. First he was fascinated to accumulate educational diplomas involving many different colleges and universities in both the USA and Italy. This quest for status credentialing ended with a questionable Ph.D. purportedly issued by his hometown uni in 1941 during a time of WW-2 intense warfare.

  • During this course of advanced study, pucci was supposedly also flying fighter-pilot missions. A passionate Italian nationalist, pucci committed to military service via flying fighter planes for the Italian air force. He became involved with Mussolini's daughter. All the while EP had been interested in fashion especially synthetic sports fabrics (Rahu mixed fiber, rahu poseur artificial). His remarkable career in fashion design via numerous iterations utilized the newest synthetic fabrics and dyes. Rahu generally flourishes in Kumbha, and Pucci's Rahu-Kumbha-10 featured the remarkable psychedelic patterns of the Aquarian Age.

Mahadasha of Rahu for Rahu-Kumbha

General trends, environments, experiences of the mahadasha

Trajectory via Goal-Setting, Gains, and Networked Systems

  • Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on risk-rewarding Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Kumbha the Hollow Gourd.

  • Rahu is the co-ruler of Kumbha thus results of Rahu-Kumbha, similar to Rahu-Urisha, are favorable overall. Rahu-Kumbha = a community-advancement desire in which the native 's goals for personal gain = achieved in the context of collective progress.

  • The typical starting scene is a goal-setting social assembly or entrance into the marketplace of gains and earnings.

The Rahu experience begins with establishment of goals (according to the bhava) which organizes the native 's efforts either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of the social art of networking is required. The environment supports every type of large group collective affiliation such as social participation movements, labor unions, and community development. The important actors typically hold rank of union organizer, elder sibling or way-shower in the marketplace, friend, and colleague of the assembly.

Community from inside, social progress from outside

  • the native might engage in gainfulness behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction to an unusual type of earnings opportunity. Everyone in this Rahu-Kumbha environment is involved in economic development and expansion of opportunity for participation in distributive networks.

  • The systematic networking of the personality integrity or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as developing an economic strategy for using earnings from a salary, involvement with a labor union, or setting a material achievement objective. One might start the cycle with a desire to earn more and expand one's participation in the community collective.

All for One and One for All

  • The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After embarking upon quest to gain more oneself in the context of community-wide distribution of opportunity, there is continuous development of the goal-setting and material advancement through collective organizations. Labor unions and social-change rallies are featured scenes on this trajectory.

Rahu is co-ruler of Kumbha thus He gains extra power in Kumbha. Rahu-Kumbha produces strong desire for connected, orderly scientific pursuits involving somewhat wild, reckless, disruptive or exotic behaviors.

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha

lengths for each bhukti and pratyantardasha era) may be punctuated by shell-deaths or severe loss of vitality from nervous exhaustion .

A shell-death or abrupt separation can serve as the 'opening bell' of this mahadasha.

The initial onset of a crisis caused by over-work in quest of a gain or goal 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 previously balanced conditions of income and community participation, the native blames the economy or 'circumstances beyond our control'.

However psychically it is the native 's ambition to catapult oneself into the higher powered realm which eradicates previous material achievement targets to make way for new objectives and a new trajectory toward the top levels of social recognition.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. The native is networked into the culture of the new actors, and may be asked to accept additional connections, outside the community of one's upbringing.

Although it involves a great deal of targeted effort, one needs to acquire or remember elements of the new actors worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
