Shatavisaka * Sadachbia * Shata-takara
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 and 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 Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.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 Shata-taraka
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."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Surya rules and casts drishti into swabhava Simha-7 = 6th-from-Chandra agency of emotional conflict. 6th-from-Chandra and its denizens become agents (persons and environments) of accusation and betrayal. Economic activities (11) in general, and the father-figure in particular, become charged with the patterns of accusation and grievance.
Jobs' bio-dad = Abdulfattah Jandali. As a grad student in economics Surya-Kumbha, Mr. Jandali immigrated into the US from Syria. At the time of Steve Jobs' birth, Jandali was completing his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He later served as a political economics instructor at University of Nevada, among others.
Bio-dad's adult livelihood = restaurateur, casino manager (Surya games, gambling) + businessman
Surya in Kumbha is primarily a transmitter (Arka) of electronic and economic systems. Arka loses some of the natural solar confidence due to the strict materialism of uttama-Shani-7. Bio-dad Jandali reportedly said that he had no interest in meeting his famous son and feared to be accused of seeking a reunion in order to get money from his offspring. Jobs publicly, contemptuously disavowed the bio-dad.
8th-from-Surya typically represents the Next Father-figure. Because Surya-11-Kumba has no companion graha, only one father-figure is recognized. The recognized father is the adopted father, Mr. Jobs the repo man, represented by Kanya-6.
In early infancy, the baby boy was adopted and named Steven Paul. The adoptive father who raised him securely if humbly was supportive if somewhat distant.
The adoptive father was a modest rank-and-file worker = bhava-6-Kanya. He was primarily a machinist at a pre-Silicon-Valley laser factory. Adoptive father's career included extra work as a tow-truck driver and lock-breaker who is paid to repossess the automobiles of those who failed to repay their car-loan. Failed loan contract = 6.
Surya-Kumbha = dad converted the garage of the family home into an electronics tinkering workshop for teenage Steven, who easily obtained parts from the warehouses of early-stage Silicon Valley.
For a masculine nativity, sparkling Surya in the swabhava-swakshetra of Shani, may have economic genius paired with weakened confidence in one's ability to live by the bright light of Surya's divine truth.
Surya-Kumbha often indicates dishonest male figures possessed of systems-connectivity intelligence but lacking confidence in their own personal integrity.
envisioned the computer as a household appliance at time when computers were huge expensive items in special air-cooled rooms operated by mysterious programmer-operators and costing millions of dollars. To Jobs, the computer seemed more like a car or a refrigerator: an electricity-powered convenience commodity that modern people would buy, due to its ability to make life easier, and its affordable price. More conventional minds found this viewpoint rather singular and not widely applicable to the consumer market, but indeed Jobs was right about computers becoming common household appliances. Of course he was wrong just as often as he was right, and many investors lost money on his hyper-confident wrong starts (Mangala also takes drishti of Rahu-Mula-11). But Jobs continued to innovate and think independently "out of the box" and those ideas that he was able to manifest in large-scale production (smartphones, music pods) did indeed induct a new era of civilization
Surya in bhava-1 may believe that one personally regulates (Kumbha) the revenue, rewards, earning, or profits
SSurya in bhava-1 games the system
This system-gaming (Kumbha system; Surya gaming) behavior typically begins with the father (Surya pitrikaraka) and father's siblings (11 = 3rd-from-9) and extends to the male native. Jobs' bio-dad worked in casino gambling.
Surya in bhava-11 in Kumbha may indicate attempts to express personal political, creative or dramatic genius (Surya) within a strict system-regulated economic transaction network (Kumbha) resulting in occasional acts of personal-override of the community rules, producing dishonesty in obtainment of marketplace revenues.
Fortune magazine profile: money.cnn.com/2008/03/02/news/companies/elkind_jobs.fortune/index2.htm
Birth-mom = Joanne Carole Schieble. At the time of the birth of her son, Ms. Schieble was a University of Wisconsin undergraduate student in the same economics classes wherein the bio-father worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. (Compare to the similar situation of the birth parents of POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama, at University of Hawai'i.) She worked as a speech pathologist. Chandra in classroom-2 speech
Chandra in classroom-2 * matrikaraka occupies the perpetual narrative 3rd-from-Budha = emotionally sourced talkativeness, often talking about phenomena of bhava-2 including money, values, art, history, traditions, genetics
Life-mom adoptive mother
MARRIAGE emotional support partnership
Chandra = two sets of parents
uttama-Shani shows the adoptive parents as responsible, reliable, committed to the parenting relationship, and importantly identified as working-class citizens.
Shani-7 powerfully structures his personality with discipline, lawfulness, and work toward equalizing society. The adoptive parents contributed a vital element of class identity which ensured that the later computer and phone appliances were seem as common people's normal possessions, not elite exclusive artifacts of the super privileged.
Indeed the smartphones are found among persons rich and poor, all classes and cultures. This remarkable affordable connectivity appliance promotes social justice on a previously inconceivable scale.
Chandra rogesha for Kumbha nativity
Comfort-seeking Chandra in classroom-2 rules bhava-6 disease, disagreement, divorce, disappointment
Mr. Jobs' roller-coaster career swung from ignominy and rejection toward fame and glory and back again.
Risk-rewarding Rahu is a barrier-breaker and dissociative Ketu is a disperser. He had both. Jobs had many ups-and-downs in his storied electronics-design career, but he was most successful as a fiery preacher (Dhanuzya) hyper-promoter (Rahu) and designer (Zukra).
Mangala-3 sales, management, product development, advertising ** constant promotion of new technology (Budha) via explanation, description, pronouncements
Karmesha Mangala rules + occupies bhava-3 products
SJ is credited with taking a major leadership role (10) in the broad effort to transform the electronic computer (Kumba) into a home appliance (3) +++ changing the familiar telephone device (3) into a home management system (3)
Budha-12 rules 5-celebrity ++ 8 secrets, disguise, revolution
Guru-yuti-Ketu rules Chandra-Meena-2 = the mother dissolves
Chandra-12 rules the childhood home
Guru-yuti-Ketu occupies the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra evaporates (circumstances of infant adoption)
Guru-yuti-Ketu-3 occupies 4th-from-Chandra ensured that the identity of his birth parents remained surrounded by a haze (Ketu) for a long time. In addition he became himself a parent as a young bachelor, but evaded the fact of his parenthood claiming (variously) that he was sterile (Ketu) or that the paternity tests were unreliable (Ketu unreliable
As a highly reputed public figure, the computer designer and showman wished to live as securely as possible, yet his privacy was constantly disturbed (Ketu). )
Powerful dhana-yoga = Zukra-yuti-Rahu-11 rules 11th-from-11th
however, all is not easy due to numerous high-conflict patterns. Zukra also rules 6th-from-Zukra ++ Shani retarding drishti
Zukra bandesha ++ rahu = unusual design of homes, buildings, vehicles -- even a big yacht
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
atmakaraka * uttama
Shani rules kumbha swamsha
Shani in Bhava-9 mutual aspect to Mangala-3
This push-me-pull-you pair indicates a tense, conflicted, and contentious personality.
The immovable object (uttama-Shani) is placed in constant tension with the irresistible force (swakshetra-Mangala). The result = extremely productive, irascible, offensive, dominating, and brooks no resistance until Shani gains strength via transit or bhukti rulership.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
During Surya-Rahu bhukti in 2011, Mr. Jobs left his terrestrial body (age 56) following a siege of pancreatic cancer. Rahu-9 iconic preacher. His fleshdeath was reported and evaluated in the international news for months.
foreign guru Rahu-9 = Japanese Zen priest = lifetime spiritual guide
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu-yuti-Guru Mithunaya-3 * vague, conceptual, philosophical, unclear, inaccurate, information about father, sacred doctrine, international view. Apathetic toward orthodoxy.
