Rahu and Surya = dire enemies.

Expect contradiction, complexity, and confusion in the behavior of the native whose personality combines virtuous Surya = pure brilliant hot direct light + vicious Rahu = dark, smoky, and surreptitious .

Desire to have center-stage attention [Surya] is much amplified [Rahu].

Absolutely self-righteously self-confident whether the principles of one's action are in terms of social morality right or wrong

The person has a brilliant ego-bright side and a murky, ego-eclipsed dark side

Pitri Dosha

Rahu-yuti-Surya is generally considered to produce a pitri-dosha * imbalance-seeking-a-remedy relationship to The Patrons. Depending upon culture, the patrons or sponsors of human culture may be considered to be any number of guides from superior extraterrestrial cultures (deities), may be considered to be one's male ancestors (common belief particularly in Bharati cultures), and may be considered to be Father Figures of various types such as religious patriarchs (arkos, papa, etc) whose influence is believed to endure for many centuries.

According to cultural belief, one of the common outcomes of pitri dosha can be a failure to worship the ancestors properly.

Rahu in bhava-2 usually casts some shadow upon the family lineage. Surya-yuti-Rahu in bhava-2 suggests the father's [Surya] family lineage may be questionable. As the American saying goes, Rahu Dosha afflicting Surya in bhava-2 indicates "a rooster in the hen-house" meaning that who is named as the father or the father's father is likely an impostor [Rahu].

In modern terms, pitri dosha may be understood as amplified, over-reaching, highly ambitious and expedient-acting father-figures, particularly one's own father but also male authority figures (including self-appointed) of all varieties. Traits of Surya such as willpower, self-confidence, selfishness and charisma are exaggerated in the father-figures' behaviors.

Pitri dosha may also attract self-dramatizing personalities of any gender, self-important politicians, hot-headed fashionistas, and show-boaters. If Surya is ill-placed, expect predatory narcissists as well.

Shadowy Brilliance * barrier-bending, taboo-twisting Genius

Surya-Aurya-yuti-Rahu indicates something "on the edge of the aura" outside the realm of the Light, which is untoward, something illicit [Rahu], something obscured or not quite straightforward that seems to contradict or confuse the purity of the public presentation [Surya].

There is something dark and seductive in the background. It can be a taboo personal relationship, a sneaky way of gaining power, or an obsession of some kind. Depending on other factors in the nativity, one may place this obsessive intelligence into operation for the benefit of humankind, or to benefit the family, or to other positive purposes. It need not be unseemly and is often praised.

  • Navamani Malai 1879-1950 Bhagavan Shri Ramana Maharshi * Rahu-Dhanus yuti [Surya-Dhanus] (1) experimented [Rahu] with with many varieties of self-apprehension (1). He practiced dying and un-dying in meditative conditions until he had a clear understanding of the radiant energy core [Surya-1]. Devotees then began to seek his living empbodiment of the philosophy of Life ]dharmesha Surya].

As the preeminent karaka of desire, risk-rewarding Rahu in conjunction with sparkling intelligent Ravi classically produces some variety of occult sexual behavior: something important to the native 's identity, which is culturally prohibited, and which must persist in the shadows.

Behind the blinding great light of Surya the barrier-bending, taboo-twisting behavior may not be detected and the native may contribute highly positive role-modeling energy in public settings. However, there is typically something shadowy but desire-driven, at the outer edge of Surya's magnificent aura.

A case of Pitri Dosha and Kalatra-Dosha for Rahu-Mesha-Arya yuti [Surya-Mesha-uchcha] yuti Shukra

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson * Surya-yuti-Rahu yuti Shukra-10. Jefferson helped frame the USA Constitution on the basis of Self-Evident [Surya] principles of natural human rights [Surya]. As an Enlightenment [Surya] figure, his positive impact on the history of western civilization is undeniable. That he was able to assert Enlightenment truths [Surya] into the structure of a national government (Surya-10) was a stroke of pure genius [Surya]. But there is another view of Jefferson's behavior which suggests a Pitri Dosha. Rahu afflicts Surya and Shukra (wifely companion). Jefferson's wife's father sired 12 children with one of his slaves named Betty Hemings. Those slave children were siblings to Jefferson's wife Martha. After his wife Martha died, TJ was still a young man in his early 40's. His deceased wife's 25-years-younger sister Sally age-14 was his household slave due to her 25% African blood, TJ invite Sally dto attend him and his daughter. After two years living together in Paris, Sally returned to Monticello and bore TJ seven further children. The Surya-yuti-Rahu piece-de-la-resistance is the remarkable self-centeredness. Unable to think beyond his own pride, TJ did not emancipate Sally in his final will [Surya].

Pitri Dosha for Rahu-Mesha-Arya yuti [Surya-Mesha-uchcha] Surya+ Shukra-8

  • In the early decades of the 20th century, Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 neurologist Sigmund Freud was a highly respected physiological neurologist and trauma specialist (8) working within the emerging new (Mesha) therapeutic field of psychiatry. His topical specialization was the role of Willpower (Surya, ego). As a university professor and European regional expert on nervous disorders, the charismatic ([uchcha] Surya) Dr. Freud was widely admired as a pioneering [Mesha] explorer of the subconscious mind (Surya activates 12 subconscious) . Yet, Behind the glow of Freud's brilliant discoveries lurked a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting [Rahu] life fraught with culturally forbidden incestuous relationships [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] -8. A great appreciator of women, Freud conducted a decades-long sexual relationship with his wife's younger sister [Shukra] SF was reputed to have enjoyed the secret pleasures of other ladies as well. Freud's own father [Surya] married three times, and little Sigismund was born to his father's youthful third wife.

The normal development of father-son and guru-sisya relationship may be amplified and often interrupted.

Pitri Dosha for Rahu-Meena yuti [Surya-Meena] -5 * fame, fashion, charisma, romance, self-focus and male-to-male relationships.

  • A compelling theorist of political economy [Surya] and social economy [Shani] Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx gave a powerful voice to the 19th century Euro-American struggle against economic-oppression and the institutionalized exploitation of workers. While maintaining a bourgeois household in London, with his wife and six children, Marx fathered an additional child during a long-running relationship with his housekeeper. The child was incorporated into family life but the mother continued in servitude, and she received no inheritance upon Marx's death.

Exaggeration and amplification of the Father and the Ego-personality.

Although resorting to behavior of an impostor [Rahu] one shines brilliantly.

Ambition to be recognized as a genius in every undertaking.

One will take risks [Rahu] and break taboos [Rahu] in order to achieve praise and express political intelligence [Surya].

Risk-rewarding Rahu's cultural mix-mastery suggests a strong dose of internationalism

Rahu Drishti to Surya

Amplification of the Glory of the Father-figure

  • Prince of Monaco Albert Grimaldi = his father a notorious royal womanizer

  • Calif-Gov 1938- Moonbeam Jerry Brown Surya-yuti-Shani; his dad Pat Brown was also Calif Gov

  • USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King = his father was a high-visibility preacher and leader (Surya-7 adviser)

Inflated entitlements

Due to Rahu's ability to cast drishti upon the bhava 5-7-9 from His radical place, Rahu drishti to Surya is quite commonplace.

Nevertheless, the drishti of Surya 's bitter enemy Rahu upon Surya indicates an ego-development disorder [Rahu] of some variety. It need not be severe but it will be present.

  • Severe father-fact-inflation generally occurs when Surya accepts a double drishti of both Rahu and Guru.

  • (That somewhat rare combo could be a recipe for a genuine narcissistic personality disorder as the person simply cannot comprehend any boundaries upon their personal excellence.)

The normal, factual relationship with the father and father-figures [Surya] is disturbed [Rahu]. Often the father has some type of socially inappropriate [Rahu] desire-driven behavior such as addiction, crime, promiscuity, or a general lack of resistance to opportunity for self-promotion. At minimum the father suffers from self-glorification and boasting.

  • The interrupted [Rahu] development undergoes a spin-doctor"cover-up" (Rahu, eclipse) in the native 's self-narrative.

Often the role of the father or father-figure is romanticized into some brilliant (Ravi) personality that is rather more godlike or royalized [Surya] than the facts would, upon inspection, scientifically [Shani] support.

  • The male native carries this inflated-ego entitlement into his own life.

  • The feminine nativity may cover up her knowledge of the moral shortcomings of her father with tales of his creativity, courage, or intelligence. She may attract bosses and male authority figures with the same interrupted-ego-development dysfunctions displayed by her father.
