defense of the land and continuity of the rhythmic, habitual routines, folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people

resistance to parents and schooling + obligation to protect the root culture

hard work and steady duties upon the land; farming, home-chores, policing

profound sense of responsibility for matters of the home and homeland, yet frustration with duties and often insufficient resources in the household

LEARNING PATHWAY of Shani-4 may involve necessary dealings with household, cultural foundations, boundaries, routines, old-Ways

Persons, conditions, phenomena of Bhava-4 have become Culturally Normalized

average, conforming, conventional, socially approved conditions among the

  • householders, denizens, citizens, parishioners
  • parents, schoolteachers, caretakers, dwellers in the settlement

  • sober acceptance of poverty and suffering (6)
  • governance duties conducted with responsibility (10)
Support for socially-approved dutiful roles as parent, schoolteacher, police, border defense, fisher, farmer, ritual worship, temple maintenance, guardian of local infrastructure.

Agents of bandhusthāna enact a fearful, life-threatening [Shani] script of punishment and restriction.

Agents of bhava-4 = the parents, police, and property-defenders; schoolteachers, diploma-givers, home-owners, vehicle-owners, parochial religionists, examiners, licensors, gate-keepers for social licensing.

The bandhesi agents say

  • You follow the rules, or else we (the parents, caretakers, gate-keepers) will eject you from the home, and freeze your access to our cultural roots, farmlands, protective shelters, and vehicles.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 narrative of the threat of homelessness and unbelonging is further embroidered with contributing voices from Shani's rashi, incoming drishti to bhava-4, shani's angle from Chandra, shani's placement in navamsha, planetary tenants in those bhava ruled by Shani, etc.

How it starts, how it stops

Before taking the present birth, professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 has accepted the pre-incarnationally planned challenge to live without [Shani] conventionally [Shani] belonging to a fixed place, an ethnicity, ethnoreligion, asettlement. One arranged before birth to the conditions of living without deep roots (4) and often with heavy responsibilities for humorless, impoverished, or fearful parents.

Success comes when it is realized in a state of non-reactive neutrality (Shani,"what is " neutrality) that one does not have to (Shani, obligation) engage in a perpetual reaction to the material agents or environment of bhava-4.

Rather, one reaches a higher level (Shani, hierarchy) of spiritual responsibility which points away from the external materializations of outer people, places and things, and especially worries about social states or scarcities.

The higher focus points toward the inner originating belief structure (Shani, structure). Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 experiences the full neutrality of realization of things "as they are" -- which completely removes the stress of trying to force things to be as they should be -- when the Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 native looks inward to the originating causes of feeling unmothered, ungrounded, unsafe, unrooted, unprotected, uneducated, unfounded, unsheltered. Look within for the source of scarcity, dryness, and reduced entitlements.

Having found the seeds within, one may deal with and react to the inner expectations immediately as they arise into the field of consciousness. External physical manifestations such as persons, places, and things will cease to disturb one's peace.

However, while the native is working through the obligatory strictures (necessary work) of realizing that the external agents are simply mirror images of one's own internal beliefs, the field of perception will produce experiences of oppressive scarcity and limitation.

Activities and environments of bhava-4 such as fishing, farming, gardening, maintaining the home, laying foundations, providing safety, protecting vulnerable elders (Shani, old age), parenting, schoolteaching, preparing regular meals, and acts of routine (rutted) transportation such as a"commute" may feel oppressively effortful. One may often feel"stuck in a rut" due to obligations to parents, school, homeland and a constant [Shani] concern with safety.

Agents of bhava-4 such as landlords, parents, and schoolteachers may impose heavy rules. Bhava-4 rules subterranean environments and"the end of things " therefore activities such as burial and underground locations such as basements and cellars can impose pre-incarnationally planned (effortful) structure.

You don't get spoiled if you do your own ironing."

~~ Sophie's Choice 1949- drama Meryl Streep [Shani-4]

Stoic Shani in Bandhu Bhava-4

  • stubborn in the life-base

  • emotional defensiveness due to perceived inadequate security

  • pessimistic, rigid, restricting, minimalist defender of the Old Way of Life.

  • rigid adherence to antique codes of conduct

  • lawful nationalization of local ethnic custom

  • prevents unnecessary change to the local infrastructure

  • proletarian, public schooling

  • karmic limits impose restrictions upon childhood home, mother, shelters, farming, the homeland

  • distinctively hard-working personality due to Shani-4 dutiful 10th drishti into bhava-1 personality

  • may have stomach distress due to miserliness and stodgy food


  • old cars, old boats, old roadways, old waterways, old buildings, old customs, old farms, old worship, old rituals = defended against innovation

Tula, Makara-Draco, Kumbha = easier social duty roster

  • Sober Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 feels generally less pinched by material scarcity, more secure , and more naturally accepting of the limitations of local, parochial habits and routines

Responsibility for the base classes

  • Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros has been a tireless advocate for the poor and intimidated. His programmatic social-progress funding focuses on bringing up the bottom by providing benefits for the most marginalized groups such as women and minorities

pre-incarnationally planned limits restrict the boundaries of buildings, vehicles, and schooling

intimidated by difficult educational decisions

conventional schooling and homelife

conservative parents, simple house

rigid stomach, deficient nourishment

fear of homelessness and unbelonging Professor Shani's classroom in bhava-4 features the experience of matching the fear of the mother , fear of the parents, fear of the school, fear of the village, intimidated by the old folks of the settlement, fear of the land, fear of the sea, fear of sitting, fear of stasis.

Shani's instruction = "stop matching that which is not lawful to you" (stop matching the fears of others) and proceed with care.

Effort due to Lack of ethnic, local credibility (anti-Surya)

Serious Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 represents resistance to change which necessitates the effort that is required to achieve a consistent and credible ethnic-roots, foundational, local identity.

Lands and Properties

Preincarnationally planned restrictions limit the extent of property ownership-stewardship . Duties and responsibilities may exceed pleasure and profit in regard to farmlands, agricultural management. Struggle and resistance toward popularization or use by the common people of one's properties.

A normal, average, conventional household

  • Berkshire Hathaway 1930- mutual funds Warren Buffett . During his financial-power ascent, buffett remained based in his birth town of Omaha, naebraska, continuing to live in the same dwelling that he bought in 1958. His home is distinguished by its unpretentious normalcy, blending with the bourgeois neighborhood in style and size.

Obtainment of foundational education may feel very effortful; one feels as if one is working much harder than others in the environment yet earning lower grades or less recognition. Often must work continuously to earn tuition funds, while studying.

However, Shani in kendra gives both resistance and persistence. Schooling is slow-going and demanding. Yet, like the turtle and the hare, professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 eventually obtains the diploma, license, or certification while others who may lack Shani's internal disciple can fall by the wayside.

Shani-Mesha, simha, or Vṛścika may signify heavy labor in the household or farmlands.

  • the birth family of POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Thelma Nixon owned a series of failed farms, on which the children of the family including her were required [Shani] to work all day every day in addition to their schoolwork. her mother died of illness and exhaustion while Pat was in her teens, causing much of the home-duty to fall on Pat's shoulders

insufficient resources and scarcities in matters of the home and homeland, difficulties to manage and prosper in the place of birth, much [akashic memory patterning] for the mother in terms of isolation, penury, and workload for her,

Vehicles for [Shani-Kumbha] [4]

although there is usually some delay [Shani] in the obtainment of landcraft or watercraft or aircraft, nevertheless operating these vehicles is a regular process. The economics of vehicle licensing, regulation, or systematic distribution are likely to be an item on the roster of one's social responsibilities [Shani].

House Arrest

Shani-4 with strength -- or Shani-2 for Tula-Vṛścika lagna (wherein Shani owns-and-casts-drishti-into-4) -- can under certain circumstances serve to seize the movements of a person within one's own house or sheltered domain, resulting in house arrest.

  • Following his imprisonment sentence for heresy (for claiming that the Earth revolved around the Sun) Starry Messenger 1564-1642 Galileo Galilei * was under house arrest from 1633 until his death in 1642. Guru Mahadasha began n 1633, and [uchcha] Guru-yuti-Shani occupy bhava-4.

Obligation to care for the elderly

  • 300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika B.V. Raman [champion-innovative Rohiṇī-1] [Shani-yuti-Chandra] . Shri BVR 's mother died during his first Sade-Sati, when he was only a toddler. Shri Raman acquired many home-care duties in life. His Autobiography documents the obligation to physically support his aging grandfather, during the patriarch's later years of penury, weakness, and ill health

Obligation to protect the land, defensive duties of policing, fencing, maintenance of boundaries

resistance to conventional schooling, insufficient resources to enjoy a comfortable home or blocks to successful completion of a course of study, delayed diploma, frustration and delays in the national status, complexities of citizenship or regional identity in resistance to the national identity.

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien [fantasizing-conceptual Uttaraphalgunī-4] JRRT served as a lieutenant in World-War-1. He also volunteered to serve as a coder-encrypter in WW-2.

Home duties and home discipline


Chandra natural regulator of 4 has no enemies

  • strict, dry Shani sees tolerant, liquid Chandra as an adversary.

Shani gains dignity in kendra;

from 4, shani casts Parashari drishti upon

  • 6 which generally strengthens the work ethic and places a pragmatic filter upon the logical argumentation. The native is a practical thinker.

  • 10 which will enhance leadership responsibilities, public reputation and social respect.

  • 1 which asserts the need for regularity and routine in the lifestyle and matches one's social personality with activities of law and government.

Discipline, planned misalignments requiring realignment attention , and delay = inherent in matters of parenting, schooling, vehicle operation, and protecting the homeland.

A structured and regulated parochial lifestyle becomes normalized. The native feels obliged to stay near home and defend the family property.

A stable, sober, and rather conservative person, unless Shani-yuti-Rahu

Often found in local police and sheriff, military guard and government land-protective officers =patriotic duty

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien worked a full-time university teaching job. [ Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 while Shani activates universities-9].

[akashic memory patterning] of repetitive drill and sloooooow ebb and flow of transformation of ignorance into wisdom = parents, schools, examinations, property ownership-stewardship , deeds of entitlement, vehicles, home and homeland, patriotic duty, and ethnic roots

Parashari drishti to 6, 10, and 1.

See: dealing with the negative expectations of Shani in bhava-4

All forecasts improve with planetary support from Chandra.

Benefits of Shani in Kendra

  • in kendra (1, 4, 7, 10) lawful Shani = slow and steady toward material and social success.

  • Shani imposes routines, conventional behavior patterns, predictable environments, and realistic expectations .

  • In kendra, shani's influence is overall favorable due to the value of regularity in those environments.

Shani social structures = regulated vertical hierarchies [Makara] and lateral systems [Kumbha] . Shani in bhava-4 = protective and sheltering structures. Strictly patriotic, defensive, and regulating.

  • A strong regulator-Shani marks the native as an imposer of local, parochial, customary law of one's ethnic people. May be involved in local law enforcement.

  • A weak Shani = intimidated by oppressive parents or rigid local customs.

Security Anxiety.

Fear and worry regarding the school, home, parents, and place of belonging.

Must work to earn validation of the cultural roots.

  • Works to be fully approved, in compliance, and judged perfect under the rule of statutory law .

  • Yet survival fears based in [akashic memory] enforce the mandate to perform this work over and over again, until the ignorance is transformed into wisdom.

May feel or perceive social judgment that one is "Not grounded enough"r.

  • Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 = conditions of lifetime emotional security and foundational education may be limited, delayed, reduced or slowed down.

  • plebian schooling that emphasizes social responsibilities [Shani] of citizens (4) rather than individual creativity or entitlements [Surya]

Habits of completing educational studies, obtaining title to lands and vehicles, and laying foundations of all kinds are resistant to change. The native who wishes to change one's methods of securing shelter, avehicle, or a diploma, will find such a project to be slow-going and demanding much time.

Akashic memory patterning regardings Vehicles

Try as one might to change the package of attributes, one's fixed resistance to change may persist.

comfortable results : although the home is not glamorous, if Shani occupies a hospitable rashi, His kendra position in 4 is benevolent. The native does not shift house too frequently.

There is stability if not prosperity in the childhood home. Elite education may be prevented, but a solid government-supported [Shani] education will be provided. There is stability in the ethnic culture, and sturdy common roots in the land of birth.

Worried [Shani anxiety] about security [4]

Preincarnationally planned responsibility to attend to the foundations and shelters of life.

  • Sustained hard work is required with elderly parents, insufficiently resourced schools, poor homes and those who live in them, poorly functioning vehicles

  • Vehicle (vahana) [akashic memory patterning]:: Laura Bush, manslaughter car accident age 17.

Shani Transits

  • When gochara Profesor Shani moves across bhava-4 counted from the radical-lagna (material) or from Chandra (emotional) one has a sense of having"hit bottom" .

  • Approx once every 29.3 years, there is a pre-incarnationally planned obligation to return to the basics, the roots, the foundations of one's life.

  • Often, the native is obliged to work on home maintenance or home repairs, or to leave the home, or the home becomes a lonely, isolated place due to"empty nest" syndrome.

  • he best remedy, when Shani affects bhava-4, is to go back to school .

Slow progress in administrative roles with many setbacks and getting pushed down into menial roles or asked to do repetitive work or being consistently underpaid.

Conservative mental outlook, framed as "low expectations of others ". Expects to do the lion's share of the work in any team.

Deep frustration in the mental process. The mind moves very slowly. Works hard for their right to participate in meetings and conferences with decision-makers. Takes on secretarial tasks and other humble service. Great deal of writing in this life, much of it in vain or not receiving the recognition it deserves.

If other factors improve things such as drishti from benefics, the discipline for writing and slow laborious thought process will remain. However, one may receive due recognition for their dedicated administrative communications and production-planning service -- over time.

Early responsibilities in the childhood home, often due to loss or disability of the mother. Childhood home and parenting tend toward scarcity and strictness.

Completion of schooling is delayed. Self-education will succeed over time (if the native lives long enough).

Resistance to Change in Matters of Cultural and Personal Routine

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 is functional but fixed. Fear of change in the basic sheltering rituals of life. Usually forbids innovation in matters of the foundational settlement, old cultural strata, roots, ruts, routines. Stability, security, reliability, and rigidity. Grumpy and defensive when challenged by obvious evolution.

Having learned a system or established a curriculum, may refuse to adapt its components - even when the aging parts have proven obsolete. May be very stubborn. May refuse to retire. Yet this same quality of fixity grants dependability. May be the stalwart of an agricultural or doctrinal convention. May give shelter in the storm. There are reasons to appreciate the cranky old guard.

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien Notably conservative in his religious and political beliefs, rejecting as equally harmful such modern innovations such as Nazism and Catholic vernacular Mass.


Lake Te Anau, south Island, new


Schooling and early Childhood home; situation of the Parents; rules, security, strictness, predictability, structure

Unless Shani is very well placed, possibility of oppressive polarizing catalysis with the early home life, early education, and the mother.

Easier rashi placements = Shani-Tula, shani-Makara, shani-Kumbha

Easier lagna placements = Tula indriya-lagna, Vṛścika indriya-lagna, Urisha indriya-lagna, mesha indriya-lagna

Supportive placements of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 generally yield a sturdy home structure

  • schooling = conventional, populist, plebian, government-regulated

  • parents may be strict, elderly, or impecunious, but the home-life is well ordered and predictable

Growth-challenging lagna placements for Shani in bhava-4 : (count also from Chandra lagna)

  • Simha indriya-lagna : Shani activates-6 in 4 , and Shani = enemy of the lagnesha Surya. However, shani is also lord of 7th = 4th-from-4th;

    schooling for purpose of license and diploma is supported. Parents tend to be socially materialistic, practical workers; education = status acquisition tool.

  • Kanya indriya-lagna : Shani = rogesha-6 in 4 suggests poverty or ailment to the parents; however vidya-pati-5 Shani = genius for regulating the creativity; intelligence is narrowed but pragmatic; education = job training.

  • Mithuna lagna : Shani = randhresha-8 in 4; However, as dharmesha-9 Shani brings wisdom even into straightened home circumstances; parents often conventionally religious, emphasizing scriptural study

  • Karkata indriya-lagna : Shani = randhresha-8 in 4 Tula-Shani activates 7-and-8. Tula-Shani 4 as ruler of 4th-from-4th is stable, grounded, concerned with proper conduct in the home-area. The parents and local moral culture tend to be conventional, naormal, and rule-ordered - in Tula, impeccably so. Yet, there is a secret threat to this normalcy. Parents, especially mom, can have healing-transformative powers - for example, surgeons, shamans, therapists. Disaster, catastrophe, shock (8) may visit the childhood home, often as the result of economics or weather. Also sudden exposure of a discovery which the parents tried to suppress.

  • Meena indriya-lagna = vyayapati Shani ; ruler-of-12 in 4. Mithuna-Shani-4 activates 11 + 12. Not harmful. Conformist Shani becomes an agent of dreamy slowdown in the childhood home. Mom may live in an Other-Worldly state, perhaps a visionary, or deluded, or isolated. Private prayer, clairsentience, trance states may be occurring behind the facade of public conformance. Mom may be connected to hospital, monastery, secluded place, sanctuary. Parents are steady earners due to Labha-pati Survivalist Shani .

  • Kumbha indriya-lagna = vyayapati Shani ruler-of-12 in 4. Urisha-Shani-4 activates 12 + 1. Not harmful - often strengthening. Conformist Shani becomes an agent of dreamy slowdown in the childhood home. Mom may live in an Other-Worldly state, perhaps a visionary, or deluded, or isolated. Private prayer, clairsentience, trance states may be occurring behind the facade of public conformance. Mom may be connected to hospital, monastery, secluded place, sanctuary. Patriotic native is strongly identified with the parents, the homeland, local culture, schooling, farms, transport, and building, due to lagnesha Survivalist Shani -4.

Less difficult for Mesha, Vrishabha, Kumbha, and Meena.

Fairly comfortable position for Tulā indriya-lagna where the family home is conservative and conventionalized, but stable.

Also smoothe for Vṛścika indriya-lagna : the education is often stopped just short of completion, but One may have a solid career

Despite Shani's exaltation in bandhu bhava for Karkata indriya-lagna, randhresha-8 Zanaizcara brings the Akashic memory patterning of catastrophic-change into bhava-4, and the home life is upset by a mother who is outwardly, in public, respectable -- but inwardly, at home, unpredictable.

For Simha indriya-lagna, healing energies of the mother may be stopped by rigid rules and sexual repression

Frequently Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 = karaka for early loss of the mother, particularly if Survivalist Shani casts drishti upon Chandra. May be an authoritarian parent, focused on rules exclusively.

Absentee mothers due to work schedule, divorce, death, illness, or any other cause forces the native to self-parent. If mother is present she is very hard-working and may not have much time to devote to one's well-being.

Native is comfortable in a working class environment; with physical labor; with lower social ranking; with deprivation, routine, and rules.

the native will have a harsh or rule-driven mother who prefers the discipline of external performance standards to the soft and permissive" unconditional" love of motherhood. Many conditions applied to the native 's acceptability, and the mother is relentless in her constraint.

When Shani has dignity However, astrong moral and material foundation based on solid work ethic and personal responsibility, with deep respect for consequences, is created in the family home. Mother is the agent of moral discipline and character formation.

Should bhava-4 receive additional drishti, the family home may be either easier or more difficult. If Shani in 4 receives drishti of Kuja, frustration and tension in the home. With Chandra, apermanent grief from loss of mother. With Shukra, fortune in home management, interior decoration, architectural engineering, other design work - especially in industrial applications.



Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4 = reasonably education comfortable results for the native, who generally has at least one disciplined and conformist parent. It is a truism in education that regardless of schools and teachers, the determining factor is educational attainment is the parents.

so long as Shani is not in a hostile rashi

If Shani is well-disposed, one serves as = a social authentication functionary who works the socially approved system of ethnic legitimacy, education, and property ownership-stewardship . This person must apply sustained effort with limited resources [Shani]oward the maintenance of social and emotional security entitlements such as land and vehicle ownership, licensing and diplomas, regulation of ethnic boundaries, and patriotic defense of the motherland.

The early childhood home, indoctrination levels of education, property and vehicle acquisition, identification with the mother's cultural roots, and patriotic behaviors are fundamentally stubborn, persistent, conservative and slow.

Some difficulties or maturation required before obtaining emotional stability (4) health (6) and self-image (1); also restrains career (10). Scarcity and restraint leading to some type of poverty in the early childhood home (may be emotional, material, mental, or spiritual poverty).

The parents are deeply conservative, isolated, disciplinarians or are absent. One's sense of ethnic belongingness derives mainly from being a worker, and one may feel alienated from the land of one's birth. Deep appreciation for the experience of those who lack food, clothing, and shelter.

Typical mistakes due to alternative-life pre-incarnationally planned ignorance

Mistakes may be made repeatedly and a long-term burden carried, in the area of property ownership-stewardship , patriotic actions, education, emotional and physical protection, and understanding the cultural customs of peoples.

Shani in kendra has a high rate of success in the task of learning from one's mistakes.

Once the early mistakes are corrected, the native institutes a new routine, and surprising emotional success begins to attend the one who seemed earlier to be unable to root and ground into a secure habitation.

After the age of 31 (past the first Saturn Return) = comfortable results from matters of the houses ruled by Shani.


Shani's casts 3rd drishti upon Ari Bhava the domain of medical service. When Shani occupies Bandhu bhava especially when Shani has strength, there is often a member of one's household (4) who contributes manual and communicative skills (3rd from) to human services ministry via practice of medicine.

Nature of Shani being modest, humble, and poor causes such a household member in medical practice to be often underpaid or a volunteer worker. Possibly unrecognized or untitled socially perhaps due to the less elite nature of the clinical training, but nevertheless deeply committed to serve the suffering.

Household - home shelter

  • Shani strong in 4,"an old and drafty house" (usually of stone and wood, strong and well-built but old)

  • Shani drishti to 4 = "an old and drafty house" (usually of stone and wood, often rather skeletal, scarce of space or cramped and old but not distinguished; laborer's quarters.)

transport vehicles (4) may become a source of repeating responsibility and obligation


Winter in the old town of Brugge (Brussells) Belgium

Shani in bhava-4 = deficiency of foundations

core areas of initial lack of understanding + required repetition =

  • 4 = secure home
  • 6 = service ministry
  • 10 = public status, government, boss
  • 1 = physical body

A regulator of systems of protection.

pre-incarnationally planned pressure

One is judged according to one's property ownership-stewardship and caretaking skills.

Akashic memory patterning of dealing with people who are motherless, insecure, or poorly educated. Faces repeating scarcity of vehicles and property, or those which one can secure are needful of constant repair.

May be rejected by the mother's ethnicity-ethnoreligion-ethnoidentity

  • Homeopathic polychrest = pulsatilla

Shani enemy of Chandra = in 4 = good for cultural diversity because Shani resists ethnic basis.

Four areas of special difficulty caused by pre-incarnationally planned necessity to correct a deficiency of roots.

  • Despite following the rules, One never quite fits into the local culture.

Core Practice Environments which require repetitive drill and careful study :

  • one's own parents and early childhood (4)

  • servants and employees, animals, police, military, physicians, litigators (6)

  • the boss and the government (10)

  • one's own physical body and appearance (1)

Effects of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-4

Soberly Serious Shani is not comfortable in the bhava of Shani's enemy Professor Chandra.

Yet no serious harm is done when Structural Shani occupies the bhava of life's foundations, early education, and primary caretakers. Structure is beneficial for foundations. It is generally acceptable that routines, conventional behavior patterns, and predictable social and parental expectations should structure and support the childhood experience.

Parents tend to be relatively elderly and less emotionally available. The child is born when the parents have reached an advanced age according to cultural norms.

  • One experiences one's parents as being 'older than normal'. Possibly also, less resource-rich than normal, having a more demanding work schedule than normal, or being more disciplined than normal. For example the parents rarely seek outside entertainment, and they normally rent rather than own the childhood home.

As a result, the home life in childhood consists of fairly rigorous routines. The time schedule is important, calendars and 'deadlines' are emphasized, and the quality of early education is rather regimented and conventionalized. Examinations and other proof of social achievement [Shani] are prioritized.

  • If Shani = svakshetra, in Makara-Draco or Kumbha, or Shani = uttama in Tula, the regimentation is beneficial to the native as it provides a foundation of disciplined action and awareness of the impact of Time upon all life processes.

Duty and responsibility toward the parents, who may become burdensome to the native due to their age, resistance to change, conservatism or ignorance.

The early childhood home suffers from material scarcity or a persistent fear of being uprooted which penetrates the psychic environment.

Trouble getting or keeping properties, afeeling of exhaustion from working very hard to maintain a property or possession but losing it in the end due to an underlying fear.

The parents and early teachers are oppressive and less nurturing, more they understand their duty to enforce the law rather than cultivate childhood happiness.

Parental Resistance to change

Despite consistently expressed filial devotion to duty, the parents and birth place are fixed. The"roots " place and its customs may exhibit a persistent resistance to improvement.

Unable to remain in the birthplace due to professional responsibilities, need to find earnings outside the homeland or hometown. Parents and ethnic people may seem committed to a path of ignorance as an dysfunctional expression of tradition, but this only occurs if the Shani-yuti-Ketu ( the native is disconnected from the place) and Shani occupies a hostile rashi. Otherwise a simple oppression of scarcity and time regulation applies to the childhood home and the birthplace in general.

Some difficulties or maturation required before obtaining financing (6) and bodily vitality (1) as well as prestige (10). Native must remain in their home base (4) because neither the physical energy (1) nor the loaned capital to expand their scope (6) are accessible. There is always a bright side to Shani aspects on dushthamsha houses, which restrict dealings with difficult people.

This person is hard to please because Shani in 4 restricts emotional contendedness. If such a person is in your life don't take it personally... There's nothing an outsider can do to alleviate their internal oppression.

When Shani aspects 6, money-lenders, thieves, apothecaries (6) and government officials (10) are kept away. Looks good, but this also means Resistance and delayto getting a mortgage for buying a house, being treated respectfully in public life, or receiving health care. Shani/4 folks lack a good home foundation (often absent mother) and expect to feel vulnerable, weak, ill, and unimportant.

Emotionally and socially insecure. If Shani activates a good house then the sense of vulnerability might produce a good career in specialties of making others feel sheltered, such as teaching young children or regional political leadership. However, the health and scarcity implications are always there.

Better if Shani occupies a rashi of Shani, shukra, or Budha. Better with any type of support from Shukra


" The light of the body is the eye:

Therefore, when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of lighi

but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness."

~~Gospel of Luke 11:34-35
