Many Elder-figures, Many Hierarchs, Many Rules, Many Austerities

Brihaspati is a multiplier, producing many-ness.

  • resists expansion
  • doctrinal discipline
  • constrained growth
  • normalized beliefs
  • conventional wisdom
  • conforming convictions
  • limited optimism

Shani represents authorities of the social order, such as elders, government officials, and those respected due to their rank or seniority

GURU = optimism

  • a positive view of the future
  • expecting human generosity and wisdom
  • tolerant of diversity
  • always expanding

SHANI = pessimism

  • negative view of the future
  • expecting poor outcomes
  • fearing exploration and risk
  • anticipating failure
  • always contracting

Example of [Guru-yuti-Shani] [1] [Urisha] involved in a super-organized double parivartamsha. Results include artistic career diversity and longevity, two marriages 27 years apart, and sustained philanthropy.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand maintained a continuous presence in the USA cinema-and-music industry for six decades. Her stadium-size audiences noticed no loss of luster in her performance from her twenties into her seventies. She starred in and produced-directed numerous highly praised films. Remarkably, she took a 27-year break from singing [except for a few charity performances, Guru] and when she chose to return to the stage, the audience was there waiting. BJS nativity enjoys two exceptionally strong parivartamsha yoga. The first occurs between Mangala-2 song ++ Budha-Mesha-12 writing imagination. Her second parivartamsha yoga applies between Shukra-10 + atmakaraka Shani-1 conferring a famed work-ethic. Guru-yuti-Shani has characterized her 7th and 8th decades as dedicated to philanthropy and indeed, still working.

Professor Shani and Professor Brihaspati enjoy a neutral planetary relationship. Shani applies rules and Guru expands the scope of operation.

Depending on whether it is Guru or Shani which holds the higher degree, it may be seen that either the emphasis of their cooperation lies in the task of increasing the scope of operation for Shani's Law, or whether there may be a predominant Guru-driven multiplier effect of generating more hierarchs and indoctrinators within an existing orthodoxy.

In either case, the paradigm of belief signified by Guru never veers far from the socially approved interpretations, and Shani's tendency to punish non-conformity is somewhat mitigated by Guru's tolerance for diversity.

  • POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan [Shani-Simha-10 = drishti into 12 + 4 + 7]. NDR's endurance as a long-serving political wife contributed to her public reputation for loyalty. Yet, the inherent difficulties of Shani-Simha needing to combine duty [Shani] with celebrity glamour [Simha] also brought her much animosity and criticism. The resulting veneer of Hollywood elitism did not suit the more pedestrian expectations of the egalitarian American public. Although praised for her affectionate devotion to her husband, NDR was broadly disliked for what was perceived as an obligatory generosity (Shani-yuti-Guru) and a self-reflexive style [Simha] reminiscent of France-Queen 1775-1793 Marie Antoinette .

An example of Guru-Shani in matters of Doctrine [Dhanus]

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito [Guru-Dhanus yuti Shani-Dhanus] (2) SH was worshipped as a deity within the cult of the Japanese nation-state, and this status was maintained by the cultic priesthood to the advantage of the ruling elites. To uphold the purity of this human-deity, he was never supposed to be disturbed with unpleasant news or difficult decisions. Therefore, when Japan's war crimes were being prosecuted at the end of World-War-2 and Hirohito was accused of complicity in the atrocities, it was decided that while the military commanders were technically under his authority, he was never actually informed of the unpleasant affairs of the war and could not be held legally accountable. Although as a consequence of losing the war, he was stripped of his deity status and the state cult disbanded, the paradigm of belief, Dhanus, reached a resolution in which neither too-strict rules [Shani] nor too-philosophical beliefs [Guru] could predominate.

An example of Guru-Shani in matters of Finance (Urisha)

  • Entertaining 1941- housekeeping Martha Kostyra Stewart Brihaspati ruling 8-11 providing transformed identity (8) and gainfulness (11) Guru-Urisha yuti Shani-Urisha ruling 9-10. MKS built a treasure-chest from investing her her business profits into corporate stock. She was accused of "insider trading" leading to ill-gotten gains. During Rahu-Shani bhukti , Professor Shani the Lawful arranged a lesson in the form of a legal prison sentence. Yet MKS prison time-served [Shani] was quite brief. Furthermore, her financial treasuries were not substantially harmed by Shani's temporary freeze. After prison, MKS immediately returned to managing her businesses, which continuously funded (Urisha) her ongoing investments. Public opinion interpreted her refusal to blame her financial advisors as evidence of a mature woman demonstrating loyalty to her financial advisors and accepting social responsibility for MKS decisions [Shani]. With the exhaustion and expense of the trial [Shani] having been soberly completed, MKS assets continued to increase and her public reputation [Shani] remained dignified.

Example of [disadvantaged rogesha Shani] combining with [dramatic vidya-pati Guru] ++ amplifying Rahu-Parthya

  • Wizard of Oz 1922-1969 entertainer Judy Garland [Shani-yuti-Rahu] + [Guru-yuti-Rahu] [Kanya-2] [face, singing] JG combined a celebrated multi-decade theatrical drama-singing career with a pattern of addiction to medication, five marriages, and abuse by financial predators [2].

Guru-Shani tends to restrict the scope of action for the husbands.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand [calculating-assisting Mriga-2] [Atmakaraka] [Guru-yuti-Shani] Married twice, both alliances with dramatic actor husbands of respected professional accomplishment. [7th-from-Chandra = 9]. However, the prestige and scope of both lifepartners' careers was far more compressed than her own extraordinary expansive multi-decade top-performing career.

MUTUAL ASPECT of Shani ++ Guru

Berkshire Hathaway 1930- mutual funds Warren Buffett * Shani-Dhanus-[Mūla] 4 opposition Guru-Mithuna-10

WEB built a principled empire of frugal [Shani] investments distributed via mutual funds which allowed those of modest means to invest right along with him. Shani-5 slow and careful financial speculation . WEB's organization weathered numerous storms [Mangala randhresha + Guru-10] and developed [Guru] a culture of inclusiveness [Guru].

Lowering class barriers which had previously favored market speculation only by capital-elites, WEB's mutual funds welcomed qualified middle-class investors who sought to build retirement security (4) while accepting reduced potential for huge gains as a fair price for reducing overall risk [Shani].

Berkshire Hathaway 1930- capitalist Warren Buffett advertises his company as offering an accessible path to financial expansion [Guru] even for those of modest means [Shani].

In WEB's scheme, ordinary people [Shani] may invest in small shares, belying the classist [Shani] belief [Dhanus] that financial expansion belongs only to the privileged few.

  • WEB's network of slowly-built social and economic connections is legendary.

  • As well, WEB is known for the genius of his decades-long [Shani] tradition of personally hosting annual partiesfor the stockholders of Berkshire Hathaway Company (Shani rules 5-parties, entertainments) .

  • Each investor is respectfully [Shani] included [Guru] in the invitation.

Shani drishti upon Guru
If other reproductive indicators are present and one wishes to birth children, a child may be born later in life. Shani suggests maturity, restraint, age, patience. Guru indicates expansion, fertility, children.

Example childbirth indicators include Brihaspati (parashari) drishti to bhava-5, to bhava-9, and most influentially to Professor Chandra the karaka for parenting. Check Saptamsha D-7 also.
