" That life is difficult, I have often bitterly realized. I now had further cause for serious reflection.

Right up to the present I have never lost the feeling of contradiction that lies behind all knowledge. My life has been miserable and difficult, and yet to others, and sometimes to myself, it has seemed rich and wonderful.

Man's life seems to me like a long, weary night that would be intolerable if there were not occasionally flashes of light, the sudden brightness of which is so comforting and wonderful, that the moments of their appearance cancel out and justify the years of darkness."

survival fear [Shani] of over-reaching [Rahu]

ambitious passion [Rahu] for earned privileges [Shani]

interruption [Rahu] of the normal effects of Time [Shani]

impose order ... interrupt the order ... impose order... interrupt the order ...

That for which one has the most ambitious thrilling passion is also that for which there is the strictest fixed resistance.

  • stiff resistance to unbridled ambition
  • formally regulated cultural mixing
  • disciplined thrills
  • class-based limitations upon privilege
  • repressed quest for intriguing importance
  • socially constrained opportunism
  • shimmering illusion of systematic conformity
  • irregular achievements
  • over-reaching elders
  • restricted risks

The bhava of Rahu-Shani is determinative. The most growth-challenging implications are partly satisfied after Professor Shani's pakvatya * maturity at age-36 and completely finished after Rahu matures at one's age-48. After age 50, this is more of an interesting combination with less of the intensely churning push-pull internal resistance that often characterizes the first five decades.

In bhava-2

May have special assets of old knowledge, old history, and old languages.

In bhava-3

Elders may take unethical (anti-Chandra) advantage of the native. Governing, regulating figures [Shani] may have ulterior motives [Rahu].

Much depends of the specific qualities of bhava-rashi narrative. Typically, Kanya = the opportunistic mistreatment.

  • Wizard of Oz 1922-1969 entertainer Judy Garland [Shani-Kanya] yuti [Rahu-Parthya] yuti [Guru-Kanya] (2) JG was financially exploited by her manager-mother. More seriously, JG was for decades drugged + over-scheduled to the point of exhaustion by Hollywood cinema studio bosses, who heavily exploited her youth and her low-self-esteem (Shani-Kanya-rogesha)

Overall, Shani-yuti-Rahu is a challenging yoga. Much depends upon the disposition of the bhava-pati and the angle of Shani-yuti-Rahu vis-a-vis the Chandra-lagna.

Professor Shani is the expert lecturer on the topic of rules and regulations. Shani insists on the strict maintenance of the social order with minimal change. He demands an orderly process, with graded lessons and regular intervals of testing and examination for all members of society.

Strict Shani requires legitimation via licensing and degree-granting (including pedigrees of ancestry) in order to confirm suitability to the social rank and duties. He prefers a zero-change environment, resists innovation, and He permits only the most cautious and arduous promotions up the steps of the social hierarchy. Shani's structures are lawfully governed and His pace is very slow. Shani's actions and effects do eventually produce a just results. (His [uchcha] amsha is Tula.) The fairness of Shani's outcomes might be evident only in retrospect. His systems are rigid and His methods can be harsh.

Professor Rahu is an opportunist. His expertise consists of a clever, remarkable, fascinating ability to find the loopholes in the law. His specialty is the quick slither through a crevice, a creeping under broken fences, or a trickster's legerdemain behind the illusion of smoke and mirrors. Rahu is utterly unconcerned with matters of law or fairness. His goal is expedience and His character is roguish. He seeks privileges and proprieties which belong to the class of beings immediately above Him, and He uses all means at His disposal to facilitate His ambition to succeed. Rahu breaks barriers, jumps fences, ignores limits, and catapults over obstacles in His pursuit of gains and goals. Rahu's motto = " Social-material success - whatever it takes."

Because their styles and methods are egregiously inharmonious, this pair are extremely unsuitable in partnership. However, the one thing they have in common = both Shani and Rahu are intently focused upon social material achievement. Psycho-electro-magnetic emotional, spiritual, or other non-material philosophical experiences or perceptions are largely irrelevant to these two operators. They are tightly entrained to the materially " real" world. (Latin res = tangible thing = English adjective " real" )

Mixed Systems

Thus in whichever bhava the Shani-yuti-Rahu yoga pairing may be found, it is reasonable to expect some socially significant achievement. The methods used to earn that achievement cannot be purely lawful within any single system. But on the other hand. The excitement of the foreigner, the interloper, the trickster may also stimulate a socially recognized success that can be granted to skillful handlers of mixed systems. Again, whether the mixture succeeds will depend considerably upon the ruler of this adversarial pair.

Shani delivers a narrative that requires slow, cautious, lawful, and regularly tested actions. Rahu delivers a narrative which encourages opportunistic risk-taking, charlatanism, and pretense as the preferred path toward social-material achievement. while specifically ignoring Shani's rules about separating tribes, assets, or mental categories. Rahu the Mix-Master must partner with Shani the Anti-Mix-Master and in the partnership they are constantly churning.

High Tension with Remarkable Coping Devices

Even for those who are capable of mastering [Shani] the tricky task [Rahu] of mixing massive systems (economic, cultural, scholarly, linguistic, scientific) there is a constant pressure upon the social personality due to the tension between the two incommensurable methods.

Shani-mandated methods are lawful and whichever bhava is occupied by Shani will entail a slow, orderly process involving a body of strict rules. Rahu-mandated methods are exciting and driven by passionate ambition.

Rahu tends to flourish in upachaya-bhava 3 (for writers) + 6-10-11.

Shani's resistance patterns often produce beneficial outcomes when Shanaicarya resides in 6-7-8-10-11.

[Shani-yuti-Rahu] in 6-10-11 yields some of the most remarkable results that combines a nearly unbearable level of stress-tension with a passionate opportunism to carry out difficult duties.

Shani-yuti-Rahu = Observe the Small Rules in order to Break the Big Rules

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon [nicha-Shani-yuti-Rahu] [Mesha-7] . Her husband [7] was fueling a violently unpopular war [Mesha] and the protests threatened to rip the nation asunder. PRN maintained the " Plastic Pat" facade of a classic California Republican wife [Ketu-1-Tula]. PRN avoided controversy and presented a slim shop-mannequin figure through a secret beauty habit. She chain-smoked to relieve both appetite and tension.

  • Only after her husband Richard Nixon was revealed to have participated in felony burglary and tax evasion while holding the highest office of public trust, did Pat's composure seem slightly askew. Behind closed doors, she was heard by Whitehouse staff to have screamed at her disgraced husband " You have ruined my life!" However, the public saw only her serenely Ketu facade.

Physical Appearance + Personal Identity

Between Sober Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation and Roguish Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is constant tension caused by Mixed Systems in matters of fleshbody-based identity.

Marriage may be fraught with stress due to act is ways that are both

  • thrilling, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting [Rahu]
  • conformist, lawful, conventionally approved [Shani].

Irregular arrangements in regard to the social identity (masked by a conventional appearance) particularly the attempt to gain legitimacy via marriage, paired with a fascinating and often charismatic physical appearance.

  • Jyotiṣika 1956- educator BP Lama

  • drama-commerce 1978- Katie Holmes

  • Wizard of Oz 1922-1969 entertainer Judy Garland- Shani-Kanya yuti Rahu-Parthya yuti Guru-Kanya (2, voice) occupies 10th-from-Chandra. A skillful entertainer and diligent hard worker, she married five times (bhava-2 additional marriages). In childhood she had different names and personalities (normal name + stage name). JG became a notable mixer of the truth in adulthood. During interviews, she told tall tales about movie-making that were disconfirmed by other participants. JG accepted advance payment for an autobiography but did not write it. In her own words, JG used an expedient [Rahu] approach, showing what others wanted to see and saying what others wanted to hear.

  • Iran-Pres 1956- traffic engineer Mahmoud Ahmadinejad [Shani-yuti-Rahu] ++ Shani-1 parivartamsha Kuja-4 (1, unique personality)



Shani-yuti-Rahu in bhava-2 indicates an old shaman. The life of an oracle (2) is never easy. Shamans hear the sounds of the Greater Pattern and speak the truth, but when the weather turns bad, the hunt fails, or a scapegoat is needed, the Shaman is the first to be blamed. The mystical, magical shamanic gifts often become dangerous liabilities.

Most people born in the modern age with Shani-yuti-Rahu in bhava-2 may have a vague memory (2) of having been a shamanic truth-sayer and also they remember a very unpleasant death on this account. The present lifetime often involves some element of punishment for telling the truth, and the family conversely create a culture of denial and lies. It is a difficult pairing, indicating the suppression of the ancient gifts that was necessary for survival.

Most growth-challenging rashi for this pair are Simha (look for heart stress, power struggles) Mesha (look for brain stress, challenge to innovation) and Vṛścika (sexual-reproductive stress, poisons).

The good news = the Age of Meena, which marginalized the Shani-Rahu terrain of Kumbha into the relative 12th, is fading away. The Age of Kumbha, which embodies the Shani-Rahu terrain of Kumbha-systems, has begun. Those gifted with occult knowledge of the inter-connectivity of all life are now safe and free (generally) to say what they know.

Values Acquisition

Between Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation and Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is constant tension caused by Mixed Systems being deployed in matters of treasury acquisition. The target treasuries to be acquired may be knowledge hoards such as languages, songs, histories, libraries, and lineage teachings.

The treasuries may be collections of material items of value such as monies, jewels, antiques, animal herds, seeds, or other movable assets. Tendency toward expedient speech and a thrilling [Rahu] knowledge base combined with recognized achievement in areas such as banking, collections, language, or alternate history. Often involved in the world of eso-teric (beyond Earth) knowledge.

Capitalization, Voice-Face, Rahu-challenge to rigid social practices in finance, politics, worthiness, truth. Entrancing speakers, cleverly sonorous values-based speech.

Rahu in bhava-2 seeks privilege via important - often risky - cultural-mixing roles in evaluation, assessment, language, memory, knowledge, voice-speech-song, face-genetics, heritage, tradition, family lineage, food, seeds, herds-hoards, storage-stories-history, libraries, museums, databases, collections, banking, reserves, preservation, assets, capital wealth.

In classroom-2, Professor Rahu's ambitions may combine with Professor Shani's fears in a rather infelicitous way that afflicts the treasuries of family lineage, speech and song, face and eyes, capital wealth, and knowledge of history.

One may be challenged to deal with lying by social authority figures and misrepresentation of the historic values lineage by Rahu-style impostors.

The positive result (available after Rahu matures age 48-50) is compassionate and effective skill in identifying and managing the agents of mayhem. Rahu-yuti-Shani enforces the study of human motivation. The outcome of this " boot camp" intensive immersion in falsification and deception under social camouflage may be a remarkable understanding of falsified histories and the personality disorders of those who fabricate socially accepted lies.

Typical of Professor Rahu, these agents are " tricky" and their camouflage is particularly growth-challenging to assess due to its mask of social legitimacy. However once Shani and Rahu have both matured, one's understanding of truth-and-lie may become quite advanced.

Much depends upon the rashi, since certain rashi such as Kumbha actually support the Shani-Rahu pairing quite well. However, in a rashi that is hostile to both Shani and Rahu, such as Vṛścika, the family history may be woven from lies designed to disguise some socially uncomfortable truth.

Those who lie do so because it empowers them to lie, and compulsive liars are generally only able to end their lying by an act of death. Rahu feeds on deception and interruption of all kinds, which He uses as a platform to launch Himself toward higher privilege.

Professor Shani's fear of punishment and imposed conformity along with entrancing Professor Rahu's ambition to self-promotion via preposterous lying can create an unsavory combination in the family lineage. The agents in 2 are also 6th-from-9th Therefore, they are enemies of the father, and Impostors [Rahu] who are not properly members of one's family may claim to be legitimate parents or legitimate children, and take the social privileges allocated to those roles.

Family treasuries such as bank savings (2) may be misappropriated by such agents, and knowledge of the family or financial situation altered [Rahu] then misrepresented in social-authoritative environments such as the law courts. Vimshottari periods of Rahu tend to feature not only the typically over-reaching of the Rahu-agents but also the particular feature that these agents are disguised as family members or holders of the true lineage.

The Shani-Rahu problems are most acute during youth and early adulthood, when the young person may feel heavily oppressed by a social order in which they have not yet earned personal authority. The most growth-challenging outcomes are partly finished after Professor Shani's pakvatya * maturity at age-36 and completely finished after Rahu matures at one's age-48. Outcomes are not any easier to manage in youth but the after-48 "magic 50" empowerments are more accessible when Shani [uchcha] or Shani-yogakaraka.

During Vimshottari periods of Rahu, agents appear who claim "I hail from your lineage; I represent your values; I know what you know; we share history; I am family." However, with the Shani trying to legitimize the ever-illegitimate Rahu, the subsequent Shani bhukti will typically bring a testing approbation [Shani]. Prolonged or strict testing is likely to expose the false or pretentious values of the poseurs. During the Shani bhukti, one returns to the most reliable and conventional Shani-2 status including a return to reduced resources and cautious speechr.

Messaging and Mentality

Over the span of 62 years as queen, she endured countless regal ceremonies . Much of the mandatory pomposity was related to her fixed role [Shani] as the titular head of the Church of England [9, priesthood - Rahu, a woman head]. QV mainly wanted privacy and an unlimited budget. However, Shani-Mangala-Rahu makes work - unusual work. For observers, the splendid royal displays may have seemed impossibly glamorous [Rahu]. Yet for QV, it was a complex, prestige, heavy, effortful burden.

Between Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation and Risk-rewarding Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is constant tension . The tension is caused by Mixed Systems being deployed in matters of creative performance arts, theatrical glamour, fashion, celebrity and royalty, gaming and financial speculation, intellect, and genius.

  • The Tower 1865-1939 William Butler Yeats * passion for bargaining (Rahu-Tula) often blocked by social obligations and class-status identity * also his opposing Shukra-yuti-Ketu-11 signals a dispersed community populated by numerous lady-loves and sweets

Bhava-5 = a challenging location for anti-individualistic Shani . Yet, privilege-seeking Rahu basks in the attention of the limelight. Tendency toward irregular arrangements in regard to children (masked by a conventional appearance) paired with a display of political, dramatic or creative celebrity. Often involved in endeavors of gamesmanship which mixes old-order political rules with expedient individualized exceptions-to-those-rules.

Bhava-6 is a top-performing location for both Shani and Rahu. Therefore this unhappy pair are likely to produce material success. Between Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation ++ risk-rewarding Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is c onstant tension caused by Mixed Systems being deployed. Areas of success include Litigation, formalized accusation and complaint, war and crime, pollution, health and medicine, police and military, betrayal and divorce, social conflict and attempts to remedy the conflict, including all ministries of service.

Tendency toward irregular arrangements in regard to disputes, disavowal of marriage, broken promises and imbalanced conditions. Yet Shani masks these taboo-breakers with a conventional appearance. Shani grants timing and Rahu grants the art of the calculated risk. Often involved in the worlds of illicit relationships, criminalization / crime, disease-discomfort, and war. One may be exceptionally and unexpectedly successful by dint of using mixed systems. Operating in an unpredictable way and keeps the adversary off-balance. Many repetitions of a difficult problem (6) may produce suddenly, after many failures , a working solution.

In bhava-7, Shani has more weight than Rahu suggesting that the lawful principles of the social order are likely to remain unbroken despite Rahu's ongoing attempts to bend and twist the rulest for personal gain.

Between Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation and Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is constant tension caused by Mixed Systems being deployed in matters of vows, promises, alliances, trusts, covenant, negotiations, bargains, deals, and match-making. Tendency toward irregular arrangements in regard to marriage (masked by a conventional appearance) paired with a display of advantage gained from making of alliances. Often mixes old-order rules for consecrated avowal and sealing of an agreement with expedient disregard for those agreements.

As always, the winner of the planetary yudha [war] will dominate the outcome.

SL's celebrated case ultimately caused legal modernization for all Italian citizens. Eventually Shani gained dominance during SL's dvithya Sade-Sati and SL's union with a divorced man was culturally normalized. The pair remained legally married with children for the next 50 years, until Ponti's death. [Shani]

Between Shani's slow, orderly resistance to innovation and Rahu's passionate, fascinating urge toward opportunistic risk, there is constant tension caused by Mixed Systems being deployed in matters of private environments such as bedrooms, prison cells, meditation areas, hospitals, hotels, dormitories, and research laboratories. Tendency toward irregular arrangements in regard to prayer and clairsentient spiritual guidance (masked by a conventional appearance) paired with a display of passion for the excitement of distant lands. Often mixes old-order rules of socially approved conduct in non-transparent spaces with expedient disregard for those rules when there is an opportunity for extraordinary adventure.

Lawfully [Shani] Over-reaching [Rahu]

Risk-rewarding Rahu over-reaches and over-represents the activities of Shani's two bhava.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon [nīcha-Shani-yuti-Rahu ] [7] Yogakaraka Shani rules 4+5, so that ruler of 4 [diploma] occupies 4th-from-4.

  • With her collusion, Pat's educational credentials (4) were cleverly misrepresented [Rahu] by her husband's political handlers. As a young woman, PRN had earned a college bachelor's degree with an added teaching credential. At the time she earned it, the course requirement for a high-school teacher's endorsement consisted of a few one-term night courses. By contrast, a masters degree in education would have required a minimum of nine months of full-time additional coursework.

  • Rahu is oppressed by class-conscious bandesha nicha-Shani. Therefore, the scope of Rahu's ambitious deception is limited. Yet, the managers of her husband's political campaigns occasionally claimed that PRN had earned a masters degree, using the Rahu-ish reasoning that three night classes is / almost the same as / a year or more of full-time graduate coursework. Perhaps hoping to gain donations from Republican fans of PRN, a university administrator quietly stated that a 1930's certificate was perhaps / equivalent / [Rahu] to a 1960's Masters degree. However, the campaign handlers' request to issue PRN a retroactive M.S. diploma was politely denied.

passion for systems, networks, lawful structures, social order, rules, regulations, statutes, policies, judgments

extraordinary, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting use of chronology, mixing of systems

Amplification of ambition to obtain entitlements [Rahu] of Shani= lawfully obtained, socially approved entitlements

Amplified orderliness

Exotic (and perhaps notorious) qualities of the elderly and respected

taste for unusual or forbidden elements in the regulatory structure

socially approved hierarchical systems may be over-expanded past conventional limits.

Exotic and excessive demonstrations of orderliness and approved competence in systems

Takes the abnormal and in a mesmerizing fashion makes it systematic, makes it socially normal

Fascinating, outlandish, unfamiliar "mixing" in the professional status and domain of socially recognized work

With Mangala, the Shani-Rahu pair can conspire to brand "the new normal" indicating social change via fascination with a new paradigm for order

One may take risks [Rahu] and break taboos [Rahu] in order to pursue social respect and recognition

Obtains status and position via dealing with exotics, foreigners, taboo content, mixing of cultures-races-religions,

mixed but legal marriage, mixed but legal profession, mixed but legal social rank

Often some irregularity in the social standing of the family of origin

Professor Rahu seeks respect through hierarchical position [Shani] with attributes that may be surprisingly marginal, extreme, exotic, or forbidden

One may be magnetically fascinating to those interested in exotic systems

In a hierarchy governed by elders and high-status holders, those of higher rank may have amplified entitlements; the governors of the social order may however over-reach in order to expand their entitlements to material status objects

It can be confusing, since social regulators seem to break their own rules in order to fast-track their entitlements.

Obsessive or exotic ordering behaviors.

Rahu + [uchcha] Shani provides extraordinarily high levels of permission [Rahu] to impose rules, potentially to excess.

Passion for Regulation, Statutory structures, orderly process and protocol * with an exotic twist, often legislating exotic materials or behaviors

Expedient regulations, Instrumental social functions
