Vimshottari Dasha effects

Mangala Mahadasha continues seamlessly into the Rahu Mahadasha, creating a continuous Mangala-Rahu era lasting 25 years. Effects of the umbrella 25-year period depend primarily on Mangala's bhava-rulerships but also upon Rahu's bhava of residence.

Physical Over-reaching

under certain hyper-stimulated conditions, capacity for amplified aggressions, atrocity, fiery competitive warlike excess

Extreme intervention, invasion, mesmerizing penetrating thrust. Blood sport.

extraordinary, surprising, fascinating, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting competitions

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] [Shani-yuti-Rahu] [1] Mesha (athlete) = 1930-1960 American icon of the athletic, graceful, beautiful, talented, humorous, always-working, independently healthy-and-wealthy woman [Bharani wealth].

fraudulent or camouflaged pursuit, challenge, war

Rahu amplifies one's ambition to obtain entitlements [Rahu] while Kuja provides kinetic energy for competitive, sporting, muscular, dancing, fiery, innovative, inventive, pioneering , first-arriver movements.

  • Egypt-Sudan King 1920-1965 Faruq al-Awwal had Kuja-12-Tula + Chandra-yuti-Rahu FA had a rule that within his motorcade entourage composed of dozens of vehicles, only His Majesty's motorcar could be painted Red [Kuja]. FA was an aficionado of expensive racing cars and often a winner (Kuja champion).

"I was here first and I claim this entitlement."

Exaggeration and amplification of of Kuja's impulse toward competitive contests and sexual pursuit.

Often a great warrior for positive social change. Extremely competitive. Likes to win contests.

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King [Kuja-yuti-Rahu-uchcha] [11]. Thrilling, invigorating speeches (Urisha) driven [Mangala] by heritage values. MLK was the son, grandson, and great-grandson of legacy Black Church Baptist preachers. Urisha traditions-family lineage. His words (2) propelled [Kuja] an extraordinary energetic explosion of talk about values (2) Yogakaraka 5-10 Kuja then produced vigorous action upon those values. Speeches about worth [Urisha] and history.

Potential magnification of the sexual energies. Masculine Nativities and Feminine Nativities may have numerous partners; Feminine Nativities often superb dancers.

Kuja-Simha politics

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] Simha-5 * BHO was seen by some as a vigorously capable, boundary-challenging, and opportunity-seizing world leader. BHO was seen by others as a fraud, inherently unqualified due to his racial genetics, or otherwise denigrated as a puppet of invisible kingmakers. Generally, BHO's supporters adored him utterly, and his detractors despised him utterly. Typical overstimulation of a powerful Rahu.

afraid of bloodshed, fights, or confrontation. Craves the action of the battlefield. Heroic. May be very aggressive.

  • General Electric CEO 1935-2020 Jack Welch [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] * Kuja-11 parivartamsha Guru-10 * Welch was known as "Neutron Jack" for the extraordinary [Rahu] ruthless and apparently zero-compassion style by which he cleaned-house to improve profits (11). His method was absolute: identify an underperforming asset, fire all the workers, sell the furniture and the buildings, and invest the profit in a new venture with better market potential. For most of Welch's Guru Mahadasha, 1983-1999, workers who were not in the privileged executive classes of his organizations experienced a reign of terror, never knowing whose job would be cut next.

In bhava-2, may be an extraordinarily influential speaker

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln Rahu-Tula yuti Mangala-Tula-2 while dhanapathi [uchcha] Shukra-yuti-Guru occupied the publicly recognized expression of values = 10th-from-10th bhava-7 lawcourts.

  • A popular and regionally recognized circutt-riding judge and attorney, Lincoln was famed for his public addresses to the masses [Kumbha]
  • His speeches to mass audiences, such as Civil War Troops and the assembled US Congress are still considered exemplary.
  • AL's words were plebian but not vulgar. His literary allusions, drawn mainly from the King James Bible, were invigorating (Mangala) yet plain-spoken, and uplifting yet understandable to all. '
  • AL's oratory was covered in detail by the newspapers and his war speeches became deeply influential. More than 150 years later, many are still read in American schools today.

In bhava-3, extraordinary writing production

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 + [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] shani-3 parivartamsha [nīcha] Guru-1 [nīcha] * wrote an enormous volume of letters of correspondence during her 81 years of life, typically several per day.

One is enabled to take risks [Rahu] and break taboos [Rahu] in order to achieve dominance in competition, and serve as an energetic agent of renovation, re-invention, and rebirth [Mangala].

Often a tough survivor. Longevity depends on other factors, but with Kuja the Champion amplified by Risky Rahu, one may remarkably survive numerous violent events and challenges to life.

  • POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams lived to age-90 surmounting countless dangerous wintertime transatlantic ship crossings, a lifetime of sickness, and decades of violent Revolutionary War

Warriors [Kuja] for unprecedented actions, caste-class mixing, crashing social boundaries

  • POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe * vigorous supporter of the French Revolution * Karkata-3 documents, reports, announcements

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln * Tula-2

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer * Simha-10

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King [11 community activism]

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein * Makara-8 sudden release of unexpected force. [uchcha] Kuja-yuti-Rahu. Einstein held a massively destructive empowerment: he knew the formulae that could produce a deadly bomb, The explosion would annihilate and maim millions of human beings within a few hours. Disruptive energy effects were felt far beyond Earth, across the galaxy and beyond.

  • General Electric CEO 1935-2020 Jack Welch * Dhanus-11 (Pūrvāṣāḍhā finance)

  • POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama * Simha-5

"Leapfrog" to a higher social privilege via the muscular vitality, forward movement, and competitive drive of Mangala

Excellent athlete, hatha-yogi, or dancer

Amplified animal-instinct Kuja unmitigated by other more sophisticated graha may result in aggression." Crimes of passion" .

He who angers you controls you.

Vimshottari Dashaimplications

When the two (or more) graha involved in a yuti-yoga also happen to rule adjacent Vimshottari Mahadasha, then the impact of the paired graha is stronger and longer lasting. When two Mahadasha-pati are joined, there is much more time-and-energy allotted to the development of the Mahadasha theme or the pursuit of the Mahadasha goal.

Mangala-yuti-Rahu effectively produces a continuous 25-year period of innovative opportunism.

  • Mormon Church 1805-1844 Golden Plates Joseph Smith [Kuja-yuti-Budha] + [Surya-yuti-Rahu] (12) --- Mangala Mahadasha * age 10.8 until age 17.8 +++ Rahu Mahadasha * age 17.8 until age 35.8 +++ [Guru-11 parivartamsha Mangala-12]. Kuja Mahadasha begins with first clairsentient contact with Angel-Moroni + first psychic discovery via remote viewing of the Golden Plates . The extraordinarily empowered Kuja-yuti-Rahu engine creates an entire new religion in the space of 25 years, complete with newly created revealed scriptures, elaborate magical temple rituals, and a passionate congregation of believers. Rahu Mahadasha ended with sacred revelations promoting polygamy and other boundary-breaching practices. Within two years of the end of Rahu Mahadasha, JS was killed and a killer in a local gun battle.

  • Origin of Species 1809-1892 naturalist Charles Darwin (9, theory, principled inquiry) enjoyed a continuous burst of publication, communication, and travel-itinerary energy aged 12 until 37. After 35, he settled into a more domestic routine and his health issues began to appear.

  • Moonies 1920-2012 Rev. Sun Myung Moon * age 35-60 = years 1955 until 1980 = a sustained period of economic dominance due to Kuja-yuti-Rahu in Tula-11 ++ Shukra-2. During his 25-year era of marketplace conquest, SMM built an empire of business interests. SMM then entered the secretive era of hidden assets under auspice of lagnesha Guru-[uchcha] 8, during which he slowly transferred the publicly undisclosed assets to his numerous adult children [Guru].

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer . Her nativity displays a remarkable Mangala-Rahu pair in Simha-10 polarized to a Chandra-Ketu pair in Kumbha-4. She was born into Mangala Mahadasha, married and bore her children during Rahu Mahadasha, and left her terrestrial body during the Guru-Rahu chidra-dasha.

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein + Surya + Shukra * the continuous 25-year period of Mangala-then-Rahu occurred from 1931 (AE age 52) until 1962 (death 1955, age 76). [uchcha] Mangala-yuti-Rahu-8. During these 25 years, Einstein worked on government [Makara] military [Kuja] projects which energized the Allied war forces. Also Shani-yuti-Budha in his radical 3rd ensured that he never stopped giving seminars (3) in advanced physics. He continued explaining the principles of Time and large structured systems to peers and students. AE was born into Budha bhukti due to his Jyeṣtha Chandra, and thus he did not experience the long dutiful instructional era of a continuous Shani bhukti . Rather, he taught consistently in the background while foreground activities were of a more uniquely individualized Rahu-Mangala-1 character.

Mangala-yuti-Rahu-yuti-Guru effectively produces a continuous 41-year period of innovative, opportunistic expansion

  • 52nd Dai, Dawoodi Bohra 1915-2014 Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin * Mangala-yuti-Rahu + [Guru-yuti-Budha] + Surya. However, his Rahu Mahadasha was already completed by age 3 due to his Svatika-Chandra, therefore only the 18-years-continuous flow applied = the first 18 years of his life.

Dasha sandhi is normally a ligature-era of waning influence preceding a surge of the new energy from the new mahadasha becomes less a period of exhaustion and more a period of continuing vitality. When the two (or more) graha involved in a yuti-yoga also happen to rule adjacent Vimshottari Mahadasha, the dasha-sandhi loses the waning, tiring effect and becomes an era of bridging continuation.

chidra-dasha (the final bhukti of each mahadasha) remain a designated period of forgiveness and unloading of unsustainable goals, but this release experience is not matched by a feeling of severance or depletion. Rather, the chidra-dasha release tends to be experienced as a mid-course correction during ongoing pursuit of the original goal.

Naturally, the overall conditions of the partner graha determine the nature of the outcomes of the extended Mahadasha period. [uchcha] Kuja-yuti-Rahu for example is potentially very dynamic and risk-taking, however for Kanya nativities bhratru-pati-3 + randhresha-8 Mangala (no matter how exalted) generates a secretive sexual output, which is amplified by Rahu yet perhaps not seen (8 and 8th-from-8th) by the public despite its high voltage energy.

Alternatively for the Karkata indriya-lagna and the Simha indriya-lagna, Professor Mangala becomes a yogakaraka. If Mangala-yuti-Rahu, the agency of Rahu may produce a dynamic career in creative, dramatic, or literary arts.

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 theosophy Helena Hahn Blavatsky * Mangala + [Shani-yuti-Budha] + Rahu * her combined Mangala-Rahu sequence endured from age birth until 23, much of which was spent in pursuit of occult information. Her literary creativity was so remarkable that all of her books have remained in print since 1885.

Challenging combinations:

The great amplifier as always is Rahu. If Kuja-yuti-Rahu occupies a rashi of mouthpiece-Budha (Mithuna or Kanya) expect verbal aggression and elaborate, legalistic argumentation as well as characteristic mapping and planning. Compulsive levels of offensive argumentation during periods of Rahu or Kuja.

Rahu + Kanya-Mangala = attacks the enemy via criticism and complaint . In bhava 12, 1, or 4, the native may pro-actively attack one's spouse with a constant barrage of offensive criticism.

Conversation turns to complaining, and discussion turns to screaming. In any potential divorce argumentation, the one may become aggressively critical .

[Rahu-Karkata] yuti Mangala-Karkata [nīcha]

Rahu-yuti-Kuja in a rashi of sensitive, responsive Chandra may signify emotional volatility. Psycho-emotional confusion, inability to locate or respect personal boundaries, and extreme desire polarization suggest a bipolar or traumatic-reactive condition.

If Kuja-1 = [Yogakaraka] then one may be able to translate emotional volatility into vigorously productive, competitive and self-expressive work that receives social accolades.

[nīcha] Kuja-3 cohort

  • POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe * served the tiny new USA as ambassador to England, Spain, and France during the early years when the USA was seeking alliances and expansion. 1794-1808. Although he eventually succeeded in brokering several key treaties both at home and abroad, he was also suddenly and mysteriously recalled from foreign posts because either Washington or Jefferson disagreed with his deals. The agreements and policies that he crafted were liable to be broken by a volatile young Congress. Monroe experienced a roller-coaster life with some remarkable political successes and some radical financial failures due to Rahu-yuti-[nīcha] Kuja in 3-management.


Kuja-yuti-Rahu ++ [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Mangala ++ [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Rahu

Case Example

Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] [Shani-yuti-Rahu] Mesha[ [1]

Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers had [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] AND [nīcha Shani-yuti-Rahu] in [Mesha01] yuti [karmesha-nīcha-Shani-1]. GR was a nationally famous, high-visibility icon of stage-and-screen, a splendidly accurate choreographer and disciplined dancer, a capable and sought-after singer, a shrewd businesswoman, and a witty comedienne who wrote her own routines.

Chandra-Meena-1 rules entertainment-5 containing Surya-Budha. GR was familiar face to adoring audiences and a fashion icon (5). While conventionalists criticized GR's taboo-challenging profile as an independent working-woman, the general public - especially women - admired her grace and grit.

  • GR's public role as an athletic, independent woman dancer (Mesha, Kuja) was extraordinary [Rahu] in her social era when pure women were expected to exhibit minimal movement. Her energetic actions [Mesha] were criticized by social-conservative reactionaries as harlotry. She persevered [Shani] eventually earning top billing even above her male co-actors.
  • Persevering Shani-2 also rules 11, while Mangala rules 2 + 9, creating a significant Dhanayoga within the Rahu-Shani-Kuja cluster.
  • GR financially managed her own earnings (11). She became a wealthy woman.
  • After surviving five divorces (Guru-yuti-Ketu) Ginger Rogers became an independently wealthy single woman accountable to no one but herself.
  • nīcha Shani-Rahu- [1] is extremely hard-working but compromised by Shani's resistance to Rahu's ambition and Mangala's direct, competitive actions.
  • Her treasury finally came in her 50's after her five-marriage-divorce cycle finished. In Shukra Mahadasha, she stopped forming partnerships (both business and personal) and managed her own capital investments [Bharani lagna]
  • Rogers' earnings from entertainment performances began to dwindle in the late 1940's, although her revenues never ceased entirely. She managed her own stock and real-estate portfolio -- highly unusual action [Rahu] for a woman then.
  • Ultimately GR's success came from doing things differently [Rahu] being pragmatically disciplined in all endeavors [Shani] and acting with independent vigor[Mangala]. [1]

Note to a client with a volatile Mangala-yuti-Rahu in kutumbha bhava-2 (family history) receiving the oppressive drishti of Shani:

One benefit of releasing family blaming behaviors during Vimshottari periods of Mangala = a smoother sexual attraction * akarshana * cycle.

Instead of having to negotiate the psychic anger field that is hanging around due to ancient family conflict. Lovers will be able to see the student's sensual beauty directly.

Sexual energy can penetrate directly to the persona of interest, permitting longer lasting but still high voltage sexual relationships.

For many educated people, having professional status is an effective way to gain leverage against the downward-pulling rhythmic, unchanging, security-prioritizing force-of-family (Kuja-2). Family quarreling pulls down; professional respect pulls up.

Within the family environment:

  • Mangala needs a battlefield in order to win His championship.
  • Rahu needs exotic situations, outside of the normal range, that break taboo and mix the unmixable.

Mangala prefers direct action. Therefore, the student is advised to deal directly with the anger patterns in the family, rather than focusing life-force energies into the convenient diversion of professional achievement. The skillful knowledge (2) gained in that combative, over-the-top [Rahu] family environment (2) will ultimately empower an adult. One learns to handle confrontational energy directly with more fortified combat skill and less fearful, weakening evasive tactics.

Professor Mangala is decisive and direct! The student's progressive, goal-oriented action in the outside world will operate better when the unaddressed anger within the family is brought into open inspection. Professor Rahu needs to mix it up! Mangala-yuti-Rahu in bhava-2 indicates that this is not a socially conventional family culture nor was it intended to be when the student's life plan was constructed before the present birth. The ingredients - Kuja and Rahu - suggests the intention to have a Battleground experience surging with ambitious craving to win.

Generally during Vimshottari Dasha periods of Mars-Ars, career and athletic activities tend to move full speed ahead. Naturally, everyone controls one's own outcomes, so there is always a provision for the learner to block this exhilarating forward innovative, conquesting, pioneering energy via anger, fear, guilt, grief, blaming etc. Blockage results from fuming, unaddressed anger patterns which are themselves a consequence of Shani's freeze-frame stoppage interfering with Professor Mangala's drive toward free movement, hunting, mating, dancing, and winning the prize. In other words, things can get stuck. But the student is fully empowered to get them unstuck.

When emotionally confrontational matters surge to the front lines in that battlefield which is the family, the high-energy experiences must receive priority attention.

If Mangala's potentials for clear and direct action is fully developed and obstacles of ignorance such as anger, fear or other stickiness are successfully removed, one may realize big power to start new ventures under a Mangala-supercharged Rahu Mahadasha, which is always the next mahadasha.
