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 Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.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."
