Shatavisaka * Shata-takara * Tabernacles
For Shata-taraka births of a masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .
For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Sadabija, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sadachbia* Tabernacles. Their purpose is mixing of systems.
Rahu-ruled fellows who are born into Sata are often found in fascinating roles that boost mass consciousness. Sata births are somewhat rare. Sadachbia work with large regulated systems such as mathematics, scientific theories, and sacred cosmology ++ with formalized psychic sciences such as hypnosis.
Sadabija gentlemen may display principled methods of inquiry, and they may hold dignified social positions, but their personal lifestyles are often unorthodox. Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.
Themes of over-reaching, charlatanry, entrancement, expedient linkage, hypnotic appearance, and connections between contradictory systems may contextualize Sata's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Sadachbia-Varuna
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 88.
"a quiet and unassuming person,
thoughtful and meditative
Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.
Prefers solitude to the company of others.
Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."
A light eater and moderate in most things."

"On the night of 10–11 November 1619, while stationed in Neuburg an der Donau, Germany, Descartes shut himself in an "oven" (probably a Kachelofen or masonry heater) to escape the cold. While within, he had three visions and believed that a divine spirit revealed to him a new philosophy. Upon exiting he had formulated analytical geometry and the idea of applying the mathematical method to philosophy. He concluded from these visions that the pursuit of science would prove to be, for him, the pursuit of true wisdom and a central part of his life's work. Descartes also saw very clearly that all truths were linked with one another, so that finding a fundamental truth and proceeding with logic would open the way to all science. This basic truth, Descartes found quite soon: his famous "I think therefore, i am"."
