QUOTATION from Control, Mission. E.T. 101: The Cosmic Instruction Manual (p. 89). Intergalactic Council.

"You are here with one primary directive: to embody the Spirit you serve.

If you allow yourself to become sidetracked by your "spiritual significance" and lose yourself in the "grandeur" of who you are, you will simultaneously lose track of your real significance and fall short of this mission's goal.

Remember that you are here to become a living expression of Spirit. Nothing you will do or say is an acceptable substitute for becoming who you truly are."

  • POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge [Rahu-Urisha in commercial-managing Rohiṇī-3] JCC was a tireless preacher on the topic of deregulation [Rahu] of the financial banking industry. A passionate ideologue on the topic of laissez-faire capitalism, JCC's association with an elite group of super-capitalized business magnates was deeply strengthened by uchcha-Rahu-9, patronage. JCC admired these barons and wanted to be specially privileged, like them [Rahu].

When Rahu occupies dharmasthāna-9, the social mobility cravings of Rahu seek a platform for ascendance in the mattes of 9 such as doctrines of belief, theory, first principles, and ideology.

  • Rahu-9 tends to attract exotic, unusual preachers into one's life. May indicate indoctrinators of belief who hail from an exotic culture, an unconventional gender for the role, or have attributes of Otherness. Irregular style of dharma transmission.

  • Rahu in pitrabhava-9 also suggests risk-taking father-figures

Patronage * sponsorship

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle His dad [9] hailed from an aristocratic lineage. Although dad suffered from severe psychiatric impairment, ACD benefitted from his father's social connections [Kumbha]. ACD became involved in principled [9] discussions on national politics [Rahu-9] during his early adulthood. Ambitious for privilege, ACD escalated his socializing. [Kumbha] He hob-nobbed with royalty and celebrities, counted important politicians among his friends [Kumbha] and wrote dozens of well-regarded essays on the major political questions of his day. The patrons in turn arranged for him to be awarded many literary honors. Yet, the pall of suspicion cast by his involvement with nebulous Spiritualism movement [Ketu in Bhava-3] caused ACD to lose two elections. As Rahu rose, so Ketu fell. ACD eventually abandoned politics [Ketu-Singha] and was dismissed by the national cognoscenti as an unreliable eccentric.

patron of the sangha

Pitri Dosha casts a dramatic shadow over the father, father-figures, preachers, proselytizers, pontiffs, presbyters, popes, patriarchs, holders of patrician entitlements, kohen, kahuna, guru-figures, politicians, high-priests, catechists, and indoctrinators. These characters suffer from amplified, exaggerated, and expedient but falsified displays of dogmatism and self-righteousness. The father or the guru may be an impostor. In cultures where male ancestors are worshipped, pitri dosha suggests irregularity in expressions of ceremonial respect to the male ancestors (shraddha).

Elevation via Pontification

Passionate, uprising Rahu in Bhava-9 preaching = privileges gained via priesthood, professorship, punditry, presbyters, pontiff, pulpit, paternal roles, puja.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 is overinvested in professorship, fatherhood, guru, pontiff, preaching, doctrine. In the desire to obtain privilege of recognition from the philosophical caste, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 has a tendency to falsify, pad, or overstate the advanced credentials in globalized, university or high-priest environments.

  • R-E-S-P-E-C-T 1942-2018 Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin [Rahu in bhava-9] AF started as a travelling entourage entertainer [Simha] on the Black Church inspirational circuit [9].

Rahu the Pretender can indicate fraudulent priests, exotic guru figures, or misuse of religious passions for political purposes.

Take care with Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9's ambitious urge to pontificate and preach.

Although located in wise dharmasthāna, Rahu is not interested in conventional, step-wise path toward understanding the structure of the dharma.

Rather, Rahu is interested in rising to a higher station of social privilege via the means at his disposal, the means provided by His bhava. Rahu always has an ulterior motive.

Ambitious desire to be recognized for the exceptional qualities of one's preacher-teacher performance.

Quest for higher entitlements via inspirational sermons and inspirational song, via temple discourse, breadth of professorial discourse, exposition of theory and theology, expansive worldviews, world travel

Rahu's passage to privilege = the Quest for Holiness

Rahu-9 is fascinated by privileged patrons (9). Ketu has nothing but disregard for the outcome of actions driven by Rahu's priests, patrons, and philosophies of belief.

Holiness-craving ambitious illusion seeking privilege of ideology and super-politics, the politics of entitlement via the paradigm of belief.

The snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.

Pathways to Importance include

Doctrine - religious, philosophical, scientific, theoretical

Power of the Fathers

  • utobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda [rhythmic-ancestral Aśvini-4] followed the pathway to patriarchal Guru-ship established by his spiritual father

  • POTUS-pair-13 Libraries 1798-1853 Abigail Powers Fillmore [passionate Rahu in managing-commercial Rohiṇī-3] Dad was a noted Baptist minister whose legacy to his family was an extraordinarily valuable library.

Patronage, sponsorship

Paternalistic authority

  • Professorial punditry
  • Principles of worth-ship * worship and liturgical ritual (not the ritual itself, but rather the theory of worship, the theo-logy)
  • philosophical discussions about sacred scripture and higher teachings

Pulpits for preaching about ideology, beliefs, credenda, theories, wisdom

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter except for his Sunday-School teaching, JEC preferred applied principles in action. Rahu-9 ecclesiastical doctrine occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking 10th-from-Chandra With vocational [not liberal] education, using scriptural culture [Karkata] to guide goverance decisions, a peanut-farmer [Karkata farmer], and Navy officer with minimal political experience -- JEC was a political outsider of a high order. Unfortunately, his outsider unfamiliarity within the international governance networks caused his political downfall.

Rahu's passions find Opportunity in environments of dharmsthāna

  • philosophy, theology, preaching, fatherhood, world travel
  • fascinating doctrines

  • display of patronage, pontificate, patriarchal culture,
  • wisdom, indoctrination, higher understanding regarding ceremonial worship (but the ritual worship itself is seen via bhava-4)
  • emblems of the university and the wisdom-temple

  • may breach the established comfortable folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms
  • over-extended in doctrine, theory, first principles, ideology, philosophy, global-scale beliefs

EARNINGS Rahu occupies 11th-from-11

Rahu in Bhava-9

  • counted from D-1 lagna

  • ambitions expressed via ideologies (capitalism, communism) and doctrines

Inveterate theorists

  • fascination with exotic doctrines

  • a mesmerizing preacher, proselyte, pope, presbyter, pandita, or professor

Rahu finds His instrument of self-elevation in the ideological, doctrinal, theoretical and philosophical teaching and preaching roles. Often exudes a passion for dogma.

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison [entertaining-gambling Pūrvaphalgunī-1] Due to his extremely high celebrity factor [Simha] GH became the most visible exponent of the international Hare Krishna outreach movement of the ISKCON organization. As an English working-class personality promoting a historic Bharati cult of worship (Rahu mix-master), Harrison was an instrumental agent of cultural-paradigm mixing (Simha-9) to the over-reaching [Rahu] missionary Vaishnavite movement.

Rahu desires to show a better way of life, to moralize and instruct on the sacred truths, and to explicate the sacred scriptures.

However, the desire to be holy remains a desire.

Professor Rahu is a skillful poseur by nature. Whatever wisdom the beautiful sermon of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may hold, Risk-rewarding Rahu = Typically, a well-camouflaged human hypocrite who practices other than what is preached

Privilege-seeking Rahu = concerned not with consistency to principle but rather with achieving recognition of prophetic powers or saintly status.

  • Violet Flame 1939-2009 Elizabeth Clare Prophet [Samka-KSY] saintly figure, promoted as a rare and specially chosen [Rahu] spokesperson [Tula] for divine personalities. First, a spectacular rise [Rahu] to international status, revered as an extraordinary psychic channel and inspirational preacher (9)

  • At the peak of credibility (9 credenda) ECP issued a high-stakes false prediction about global nuclear attack. Based on this millennialist prophecy ECP instructed her followers to abandon their homes and jobs, legally assigning all their assets to the Church [9].

  • A concrete bunker was stocked with supplies to last 10 years. The bunker's sewage system malfunctioned. The faithful waited for Armageddon. Yet, the prophesied day came and went, precipitating Rahu's Great Fall.

  • Financially destroyed and demoralized, most believers [9] abandoned ECP. She had long suffered from epilepsy. After the catastrophically failed prediction, ECP succumbed to a series of physical and psychological collapses, finally dying of Alzheimer's disease.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 does not condemn genuine saints who grapple with the human passions. Rather the Chandala-9 points to their inescapable humanity as carriers of contradictory desire to be publicly recognized for their spiritual attainments.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 = the yoga teacher who smokes tobacco, the preacher of exercise and clean living who injects performance drugs, the pure-speaking celibate priest involved in personal sexual relationships, and the theology professor with a locked desk drawer full of pornography.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may do much good in the world because His message is certainly uplifting. At least, until Rahu's facade collapses.

But Rahu's methods are typically surreptitious and His power of disguise is nearly divine in scope. Rahu likes to camouflage the human being behind the theological-ideological message .

One may play the exotic but successful role of foreign missionary preacher (9), reaching out with a new philosophy to communities beyond the ethnic root.

There is often a contradiction between the ambition and opportunism natural to Rahu versus the self-righteousness, orthodoxy, and theoretical conceptuality of bhava-9.


To ensure the correct structural unfolding of the Learning Curriculum, Rahu-type astonishing irregularities are expected to manifest within the realms of 9th-amsha, including belief paradigm, principled worldview, and father-figuring.

Rahu-9 in 11th-from-11 can escalate the earnings, exaggerate the dogma, and inflate celebrity displays.

Yet along with passionate beliefs and economic abundance usually comes Rahu-style unorthodox and potentially fraudulent behavior in regard to social regulation of paternal duties.

Particularly in Asvini, Magha, or Mula, Ketu's evacuating detachment patterns can scatter the fathering focus.

Obsessed with Doctrine

or, Father is obsessed with Doctrine

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 can drain the energy from Public Career , pulling the vitality backwards into matters of global philosophy and international legal doctrines.

Vimshottari Dasha periods of Rahu

Because He teaches in the classroom that is 6th-from-4th, Vimshottari periods of entrancing Professor Rahu-9 can interrupt simple but foundational patterns related to bhava-4 such as pathwaus of transportation, housing, schooling, police protection, and the flow of the food supply for the place of settlement.

The nature of the disruption depends upon the rashi characteristics of bhava-4 and bhava-9; However, the script is generally that an outside professorial or preacher-teacher agent brings in philosophical or doctrinal viewpoints which conflict with the assumptions of the basic home culture.

It can be for example that the person leaves a secure home with its rhythmic worship and meal patterns, and goes to university where a mixture of people and shocking [Rahu] new theories of reality are presented. Or it can be that the father (9) becomes challenger to the home habits (4) seeming to disturb the placid security of the mother's territory. If bhava-9 is well-disposed, these exciting challenges to the paradigm of belief (9) can be invigorating.

During Rahu periods, one may be deeply influenced by another agent who is playing this emissary-evangelistic philosopher role.

  • "Balls of Fire" rockabilly pianist Jerry Lee Lewis brought rhythmic black gospel music into the stiff white southern church

Launch platforms = Teacher-preacher, philosopher, professors, priest, father-figure,

Ambition to obtain the privileges accorded to patriarchs, holders of patrician entitlements, popes, professors, pujari, and pater-nostra.

The father = exotic, ambitious, roguish, risk-runner.

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Ethel Kennedy and USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy shared a millionaire father who made his fortune in the stock market. Their legendary mother was also passionately ambitious for her family.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 = symbolic roles, craving recognition = Guru status

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 + [Kuja-yuti-Shani] * titular head of the established Church of England during her entire 63-year reign

Self-elevation through risky sermons, world travels, religious affiliations with foreign rituals, outsider exegesis or dark, oily gurur.

Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 1, 3, and 5.

" As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be, you can't see how it is." ~~

Be Here Now 1931-2019 Baba Ram Dass

Career during Vimshottari Dasha periods

of a graha located in bhava-9

There are many beneficial effects from graha located in dharmasthāna-9 including expansion of humanistic perspective, global awareness, and contact with wisdom-figures.

Nevertheless, the 10th-from-9 = bhava-6 indicating disharmony and ailment.

As a result, there may be a temporary experience of conflict in leadership roles, ailments related to job performance, unfair agreements, loss of contract, dissolution of equity, accusations, pollution, or other 6-related phenomena according to the rashi of 6 and any graha residing in 6.

If the karmesha occupies rogasthāna-6, the professional life remains robust, but the career duties tend to emphasize injury, indebtedness, exploitation, or toxicity, inter alia.

Careers in labor relations, social work, medicine, and other ministries of service are usually enhanced by the 6th-angle because these professions are already dedicated to service of the hurting. Their collegial relationships may temporarily suffer somewhat but the overall mission is stable.

Desire to Obtain the Patriarchal Priestly Privileges

Self-identified Fathers of a National Doctrine =

Proselytes =

  • Autobiography of a Yogi 1893-1952 Swami Yogananda

Rahu in bhava-9 = craves a privileged philosophical teaching, priestly ritual, or world travel experience.

  • Sometimes this much-desired status-elevating affiliation is achieved via third marriage.

One feels a great desire to be recognized as a religious guru, father-figure, professor, patron of scholarship, or temple preacher, although one has not yet legitimately earned the wisdom.

Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 often takes sacred vows and gets into inappropriate religious practice that is over one's head. Rahu in bhava-9 = 11th-from-11th = profits harvested from contributions of the sangha.

  • Violet Flame 1939-2009 Elizabeth Clare Prophet= Rahu-Svatika-9 (Rahu also rules Svatika). During the rise and fall of her Church Universal and Triumphant. mega-preacher ECP was consistently criticized for fabricating [Rahu] inspiring clairsentient cult messages as a deception motivated by church management's drive for profits. Rahu-9 signals opportunities to gain privilege via sacred teachings and inspirational sermons.

Great Leap Forward via Wisdom-Teaching: Philosophy, Religion and World Travel

Rahu will cast drishti upon kundali indriya-lagna = shapes the social personality of a religious priest, preacher, or exponent of a wisdom-tradition

  • exotic, unusual type of religious teachers during this lifetime

  • risk-taking father-figure

  • foreign elements infiltrate the scripture or received moral dogma

  • temple-based philosophical education = unconventional style of dharma transmission

  • religious controversy

  • native represent the phenomenon of folk heroes who become saints

fraudulent wisdom or true philosophy?

  • depends considerably upon Rahu's ruler

  • and also upon the character of gyanakaraka Guru

Desire for Exotic Wisdom

  • Desire to challenge conventional boundaries that protect temple discourse and Moral Teachings

  • Hunger to Possess priestly entitlements and temple privileges

  • Uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in universities, houses of worship, religious centers

  • Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 mixes high-and-low teachings

  • " spring forward" to a higher social station in the role of a preacher or representative of wisdom-teachings

  • One can"leapfrog" to higher religious status in realms of priestly duty, ritual knowledge, professorship, preaching, and iconic spiritual authority, often by forming an exotic relationship with father-figure.

  • False or fraudulent piety

  • exotic temple discourse; foreign Guru or questionable credentials of the guru

  • desire for recognition in priestly, ritual, religious instructor, and preaching roles

  • spring forward to a higher social station on the third lifepartnership

Rahu Mahadasha - Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha

During periods of Rahu , a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realms of philosophical and religious thought and priestly or professorial interactions.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 on one's own part will strive to match the psychic energy of exotic (not normal for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 ) priests, preachers, pundits, pastors, professors, and father-figures.

The goal of the interloper is to break limits and challenge assumptions about the normal stepwise path of the normal stepwise path of orthodox religious practice and higher philosophical teachings.

One's passion for connecting to this enticing exotic agent is disruptive but exciting and each iteration breaks some limit upon how many and which type of world-era wisdom one is allowed to explore.

Divinely Chosen

One desires to feel specially chosen for a privileged role: permission to participate in elite religious and philosophical rituals and wisdom-teachings.

One craves to be recognized as a True Wisdom Guru and empowered high-priest.

Ambassador of Doctrine and Philosophy, but may adopt expedient methods.

Although often not a conventionally avowed member of the highest priesthood or cloister, one seeks recognition by the approved religious orders, or inclusion in especially pious societies and distinguished sangha (sangiti, the reciters).

As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu destroys dogmatic moral boundaries and introduces unorthodox behaviors into the agency of

  • the father-figure
