Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Sadachbia - Varuna

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.

Mixed-Order 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 Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.

Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

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 88r.

" A quiet and unassuming person,

thoughtful and meditative

  • yet given to sudden outbursts of temper.

Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.

Prefers solitude to the company of others.

  • Does not care for small talk

  • and finds social contact rather tiresome.

Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."

A light eater and moderate in most things."

  • +++ Rahu-3 enflames the Passion for Publication

Although Marx wrote about the heinous crimes of narcissistic capitalists, starvation while working constantly, criminal exploitation of human beings, and miserable sick lives trapped by crushing poverty, he was not overly identified with the distress of the masses.

  • extensive teaching on marketplace [11] behaviors, within the context of history [2]

Engels was the best friend within a network of many generous friends

  • One especially expansive friend = Friedrich Engels.
  • The volume of Marx's output pales in comparison with that of his comrade Engels, who was even a greater writer and a greater translator [Guru in 11, friends] .


strong Guru drishti upon putra bhava provides seven childbirths

  • but Mangala ruler of 6th from 5th assures that only three of those children will survive the epidemics [6] of the day and live into adulthood.

  • svakshetra Guru in 11, financially privileged, and philosophically motivated friends.
  • Guru =dhanapati-2 + 9th-from-Chandra . Much of Marx's operating cash to support a household of seven children with servants and a fashionable wife was provided given to him by friends and supporters who believed in his mission [11] .
