Competitive Animal Movement (Angarika)
Social Order Governance
One of the permanent core dynamics in human life is the
between individual freedom of movement [Mangala] and the rule of law that guarantees basic protections of life, liberty, and property [Shani].
Western social philosophy has been focused on the polarities of this dynamic relationship since Plato.
Kant, Hegel, and Marx all have
opinions about it.
The British political philosophical tradition of Hobbes, Burke, and Mill explores this perpetual tension in great detail.
Shani is much more threatened by
Aggressive and Active Angarika than Kuja by Slow and Sober Shani.
Shani is intimidated by battering Kuja.
However, Mangala is merely
annoyed by Shani's obstructionism and impedance.
Jyotishavidya planetary-friendship rules indicate a basic reality of human life.
A physically strong person can override the boundaries of social law and custom rather easily. Strong-willed, dynamically energized criminals or rebellious individuals who have little regard for Law can pose serious threats to social stability.
Martian individuals themselves are not overly impressed by the rule of law and order, and tend not to pay much attention to social authority.
Thus Shani's hierarchical control laws are not threatening enough for Kuja to consider Shani a serious enemy.
But Shani is quite scared of Angaraka!
Friends and Enemies of Shani = Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Law?
In addition to
Menacing Mangala, Shani's other Enemies are those who transcend social law by choosing the path less traveled: the spiritual truth-seekers =
intelligent Sun + intuitive-perceptive Moon.
Shani's social stability agenda is However, nicely supported by His friends = the pleasure-seekers Shukra and Budha, who strive not for truth but rather sensuality and mental distraction.
Shani = neutral toward the all-accepting wise Guru.
Each individual experiences the tension between oppressive social control and individual freedom of movement, in a different way.
The Jyotishavidya relationship between Shani and Mangala reveals how much and what kind of burdens, duties and obligations the native has chosen to endure in this lifetime versus what quantity and quality of physical, sexual, and commercial freedom the native might be permitted.
The key contrast
of Shani versus
of Kuja. Restrictions are often beneficial, providing safety and discipline. Movements are often dangerous, allowing aggression and exploitation - especially war.
Both Shani and Mangala are malefics, but Shani is not destructive the way Mangala is.
Shani impedes, delays, restrains, oppresses, and resists. Shani does not kill or
When Shani and Mangala enter a harmonious relationship (such as parivartamsha yoga ),a good result can potentially manifest via conscious harnessing of personal energies by voluntary discipline.
The default result =
lawful but reactive aggression

bhava occupied by Shani.
The default outcome is by far more common. Even so, one benefits from the march of Time.
Mangala's instinctive appetite for birth, destruction and rebirth matures
into a more principled and judicious use of vital force, as fuel for concentrated action toward determined goals.
one may be increasingly able to regulate the fleshly energies
and move with a combination of determination and caution
which recipe is known through hard experience.
One foregoes both short-term freedom and short-term security, preferring the longer-term benefits of conscious instinct-regulation.
True freedom and true security are both achieved, although personal sacrifice of time and energy on the physical level are required, and there should be strong support in domains 1, 8, 10, and 11 (body, sacrifice-transformation, respect, and goals).
Parivartamsha yoga for Shani and Kuja occurs only in 4 cases:
Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Makara
Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Kumbha
Shani = Vṛścika / Kuja = Makara
Shani = Vṛścika / Kuja = Kumbha
When Shani and Mangala directly conflict (as in mutual aspect) the battle between primitive human selfishness and
constraining systems of social conformity make the native both aggressive and oppressed.
The result may be perpetual anxiety , which peaks during periods of Shani and Mangala.
of Shani + Mangala = a frequent occurrence, having 24 varieties.
Jaimini rashi drishti = Chara rashi aspects chara rashi; sthira rashi aspects sthira rashi; dwishva-bhava aspects dwishva-bhava rashi.
The fact that these troublesome mutual aspects are quite commonplace tells us something about human beings, who tend to run a goodly amount of
aggression and oppression, in their psychic space.
Be on the lookout for these difficult combinations which suggest either
(Mars overpowers Shani)or
to the perceived Mars invasion via excessive oppression or repression (Shani overwhelms Mars):
Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Tula
Shani = Mesha / Kuja = Makara

QUOTATION The Dalai Lama Gets Angry
The Compassionate Life
" Despite being a monk and a supposed practitioner of the Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life , I myself still occasionally become irritated and angry and, as a result, use harsh words toward others.
Then, a few moments later when the anger has subsided, I feel embarrassed; the negative words are already spoken, and there is truly no way to take them back.
Although the words themselves are uttered and the sound of the voice has ceased to exist, their impact lives on.
Hence, the only thing I can do is to go to the person and apologize.
But in the meantime, I may feel quite shy and embarrassed.
This shows that even a short instance of anger and irritation creates a great amount of discomfort and disturbance to the one who gets angry, not to mention the harm caused to the person who is the target of that anger.
So in reality, these negative states of mind
obscure our intelligence and good judgment and thereby case great damage."
A Certain Amount of Hardship on the Path
Essence of the Heart Sutra: The Dalai Lama's Heart of Wisdom Teachings.
Thupten Jinpa (Trans. and Ed.).
" The Buddha's life exemplifies a very important principle -- a certain amount of hardship is necessary in one's spiritual pursuit.
We can also see this principle at work in the lives of other great religious teachers, such as Jesus Christ or the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
Furthermore, I think that the followers of these teachers, if they wish to attain the highest spiritual realizations within their tradition, must themselves undergo a process of hardship , which they endure through dedicated perseverance.
There is sometimes the tendency among the followers of the Buddha to imagine, perhaps only in the back of their minds, that"Although the Buddha went through all of those hardships to attain enlightenment they aren't really necessary for me. Surely, I can attain enlightenment without giving up life's comforts."
Perhaps such people imagine that, because they are somehow more fortunate than the Buddha,
they can attain the same spiritual state as he did without any particular hardships or renunciation.
This is, I think, mistaken.
...While Buddhism has adapted to the culture of each new civilization it has encountered, it nonetheless retains its emphasis on morality and discipline as essential for spiritual maturation .
If we ourselves want the attainments described by the Buddha-- The deep concentration and the penetrating insights -- then we too must endure some amount of hardship and observe ethical behavior."
