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

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 (Dhanuzya)

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito * Guru-Dhanuzya yuti Shani-Dhanuzya (2) * 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, Dhanuzya, 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 (Vrizabha)

  • Entertaining 1941- housekeeping Martha Kostyra Stewart * ruler of 8-11 providing transformed identity (8) and gainfulness (11) Guru-Urisha yuti Shani-Urisha ruling 9-10. Ms. Stewart 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 Ms. Stewart's prison time (Shani) served was quite brief. Furthermore, her financial treasuries were not substantially harmed by Shani's temporary freeze. After prison, she immediately returned to managing her businesses, which continuously funded (Vrizabha) 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 her decisions (Shani). With the exhaustion and expense of the trial (Shani) having been soberly completed, her assets continued to increase and her public reputation (Shani) remained dignified.

MUTUAL ASPECT of Shani ++ Guru

Berkshire Hathaway 1930- mutual funds Warren Buffett * Shani-Dhanuzya-MULA-5 opposition Guru-Mithunaya-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 economic storms (Mangala+Guru-11) 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 play the game (5) 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 personal revenues (11) even for those of modest means (Shani).

In his scheme, ordinary people (Shani) may invest in small shares, belying the classist belief (Dhanuzya) that financial expansion belongs only to the privileged few.

  • WEB's network of slowly-built social and economic connections is legendary. As well, WEBis known for the genius of his decades-long (Shani) tradition of personally hosting enormous annual parties (Guru-11 assemblies) for the stockholders of Berkshire Hathaway. Each investor is respectfully (Shani) included (Guru) in the invitation.
