Surya in bhava-1 * bright center of regulatory order * radiates confidence via hierarchical rank-status * class-conscious secretive father * central roles in transformation of social structure * randhresha for Makara-born
Surya in bhava-3 * class-conscious merchant-father * central roles in hierarchical communication
Surya in bhava-4 * class-conscious localist-father * icon of customary Old Ways * central roles in lawful environmentalism * conservative politics of farming and land-ownership * gainful vriddhi-pati for Thula-born
Makara * Draco * = a horned sea-monster, often associated with strict laws of the dragon kingdom (draconian rules).
Suryai-Makara-Draco * bright center of governed social order
"I am" self-centric identity formed by thought-streams emitting from The Series of Suns
"I am" regulatory, unable to recognize exceptions, Structured, Lawful, Orderly.
The natural genius of Surya-Makara seeks to radiate from the center of orderly environments , such as
Surya-Makara's public behavior is typically lawful, socially correct, personally disciplined, and usually hard-working as well.
When uncomfortably placed, Surya-Makara may signal a certain amount of hierarchical conceit. One may radiate the "right status".
Compliance with organizational directives. "Company man."
Often disinterested in matters of brightness, heat, creativity, individuality, and distinctiveness. Although a highly capable organizer, Surya-Makara may lack the ability to recognize the unique spiritual and creative [Surya] qualities of others.
Individualized tastes and personal intelligence tend to be interpreted as nno-conformity therefore both the native and one's father tends to tone down all forms of innovation and march along in step with the middle flanks.
Surya-Makara male figures in general display a lack of enthusiasm for life, even while they may succeed perfectly well in business, government, church society, and professional promotions.
Savitra, constrained in the rashi of Surya's bitter enemy Shani, can provide some variety of social constraint upon individual validation .
During periods of Surya, Savitra may experience social stigma due to having taken a selfish [Surya] in a conformist [Shani] social environment.
If unsupported by a strong ruling Shani, Makara-Surya may signify a weakened social status.
Usually not a status-weakener for yogakaraka Shani lagna of Tula or Vrishabha.
Makara-Surya may signify a weakened social status * However, if Surya receives a strengthening 10th or 7th drishti from Professor Shani, the native may enjoy a well-structured career and respectable reputation.
All of the public personalities on the list to the left in some way endured social criticism for their lifestyle (Ravi) choices. The censure occurs according to the bhava of Surya and other placements such as Surya's angle to Chandra.
Surya-Makara's ego-membrane expression depends on the character of survivalist, law-and-order Shani.
In Tarot, "the Hierophant".
Attracted to the reactionary conservative political wings of all political parties, social movements, and religions. Driven by a need for safety [Shani] rather than a hunger for truth , Ravi suffers low moral integrity in Makara.
Surya-Makara radiates confidence in matters of social hierarchy and "the law of the jungle" very well.
As always, if Shani is dignified, the negative implications are reversed, and the native may -- with time and maturity -- display superior moral character.
Shani-Makara corrections, lawfulness, public status. May impose a mid-course correction.
For Kanya lagna, Shani activates the complex-and-contradictory 5-entitlement + 6-crime, along with the complexity 8+9 from Mithunaya-Chandra
Visible public behavior = psychologically driven by childhood memories of punishment for non-conformity, and praise for proper public behavior.
Ravi-Makara seeks core validation from human institutional organizations [Shani] rather than finding spiritual validation through the authentic divine presence [Surya].
Grants a defensive, conformist ego-personality distinguished by low self-esteem, hidden behind a narrow and parochial personal morality.
Subscribes to and acts from the default set of conservative practices within one's present-life culture. Visible public behavior psychologically driven by childhood fear of punishment.
Surya-Makara = karaka for chronic, deep-seated physical illness es resulting from "spiritual malnutrition" and public overcompensation for private immoral behavior.
Compensation behaviors, posturing, and "hiding" of the inner weakness seem necessary for social survival . the native adopts the social programming of a large organization (Typically, a religious one) in order to protect one's weakened inner life-force core [Surya] from withering and death..
Surya-yuti-Budha cans serve as a mouthpiece for Shani's materialistic and economic ideologies [Shani]. One loses Surya's natural autocratic style and instead becomes a spokesperson for a social-economic class.
If Surya-Makara in kendra or otherwise strengthened, the leadership style = moralistic with ideological sermonizing and public displays of ritually conformist behavior.
Naturally at home in large, conservative religious and government organizations
Surya-Makara in bhava-10 is especially predictive of leadership roles in large, socially hierarchical organizations such as corporate power structures and government or religious institutions.
Surya-Makara in bhava-11 is by contrast more focused on social networking albeit the context of the community linkage work (11) is Makara suggesting legalism, rule-governed organizations, and hierarchies
If Surya-yuti-Shukra, well-liked by the common people . Shukra = lovely bone structure, photogenic, and appeals to the bourgeois class.
Personal behavior is ultimately hypocritical, with the native prone to say one thing [Shani] and do another [Surya] throughout life.
Surya-Makara = karaka for a"pious official" who can vigorously promote ideology as a substitute for faith. Attracted into cults where statutory law is worshipped as divine. Needs organized religious support, but may turn over one's own moral authority to a charismatic religious leader.
The channel for divine intelligence is narrowed, and personal creativity reduced. One may be, however, a brilliant and clear mirror of the common mentality , One may brilliantly represent and articulate the needs, frustrations, and -- especially -fears of the proletariat.
Public appearance of s t rict and orderly traditional cultural morality is essential to the mission.
Yet, because one's access to divine intelligence is channeled through human organizational structures [Makara] and not through inner confidence, the inner moral compass is weakened.
Surya-Makara may parrot the moral rules of the organization [Makara] without personal inquiry or spiritual engagement. Public posturing.
Lack of ultimate accountability. In a leadership position, this native is prone to self-doubt.
Politically (Surya activates politics) the native projects a leadership persona of strict adherence to principle; thus Ravi/Makara appeals to ideologues of any stripe, and to the common people, who fear for their safety.
Courage and moral intelligence at a low ebb, under pressure from the law-abiding, structural-organizational agenda of Shani. The heart is constrained.
The rashi of Surya's mutual enemy Shaniis an inhospitable place for Surya.
Independent willpower is much constrained by Shani's lowest-common-denominator, conformist rule of law. the native 's ability to follow the law is impeded by a stunted ego-membrane that feels oppressed rather than supported by rules. Can be unethical and selfish due to low-self confidence.
If Shani is well placed, Surya-Markara = hard-working with good business sense.
Ego reduction increases the capacity for compliance with organizational directives , and the compliant Savitra may be promoted successfully into higher ranks of the pyramid.
If Splendid Surya receives incoming drishti of Shani, there is increased social-law accountability. Protection from elite hierarchies. If Shani is strong, one's own willpower can be harnessed to the interests of large social organizations.
Father * father-figure
Father-figure may be the bio-dad, adoptive dad, male guardian, or other dominant male = concerned with survival, rank, status, respect, and social conformity.
The father may be weak-willed, with a law-and-order orientation to public life. Father is often emotionally distant, punitive, narrow-minded, and hypocritical.
Father's approach to life may be legalistic and conformist rather than supportive of his children's individual spirit. Father gives performance-based praise and wants to see the children move up the status ladder - nothing more and nothing less.
Often dad works for large corporations, government bureaucracies, or institutions
Suggestion of a substantial gap between his stated principles and his actions. Typically, the "gap" is defined by a public commitment to marriage and family as the "pillars of society" contrasted with prolonged absence from the family home. Infidelity to the publicly stated principles may be the result.
External, public conformity and adoption of a * safe*, conservative belief system is understood to provide personal survival for the child .
The hypocritical lineage of public/private "cognitive dissonance" and infidelity is passed from father to child , unless other graha support a more firm moral character. The adult child seeks out punitive, moralistic human authority figures who resemble the father.
As always, if Shani is dignified, the negative implications are reversed, and the father may -- with time and maturity -- display superior moral character.

"This sunrise panorama seems to show such a moment on the winter morning of February 15 . In the mist, a calm, mirror-like stretch of the Miass River flows through the foreground along a frosty landscape near Chelyabinsk, Russia.
|Pragmatic and bureaucratic|| |
Surya-Makara = situational ethics favor the expedient and the practical;
Typically one finds the light of Divine Intelligence radiating from within the corporate and governmental institutions of the social order.
Surya-Makara radiantly emits seniority. One dramatically enacts (Surya drama) the character of one who respects tradition and rules.
Although independently the Ego-membrane is too weak to confront stronger egos, nevertheless an individual can succeed socially when there is a big system to create the theatrical stage of life.
Surya-Makara flourishes when there is somebody bigger to hide behind - often a church, bank, corporation or institutionalized political party .
Frequently found in political government and bureaucracies where the system rewards loyalty not integrity . Not an 'alpha' personality, despite perhaps being instrumentally marketed by their organizations (especially in politics) as "great leader" .
Surya-Makara = karaka for a political appointee functionary, who does the bidding of the hierarchy.
comments = Surya- Makara|
