the chalakaraka is motivated by a great Ambition to Philosophize.

  • philosophical guidance
  • patriarchal priesthood
  • preaching and punditry
  • public piety
  • religious liturgy
  • sacred belief
  • doctrinal development

Quest for High Doctrine. Often slightly preposterous in the attempt, yet if Rahu is well-placed may be an effective agent of exotic religious or philosophical mission.

  • Germany Bundeskanzlerin 1954- Angela Merkel * Mangala-yuti-Rahu-3. Rahu drishti amplifies dharmasthana-9 signifying the father. Although he presented a public identity as a Lutheran minister (Guru-yuti-Budha-Dhanuzya-9, catechists) Merkel's father said to have been a party propagandist (Budha-9-ideology) and employed by the secret police Stasi (Mangala drishti to 9).

Risk-loving Rahu in Dhanuzyarashi = fascinated by esoteric, experimental, boundary-pushing "teacher-preacher" roles.

In Dhanuzya rashi, Rahu the Rogue seeks to self-elevate to higher privilege via doctrinal, ideological and philosophical relationships.

Great leap forward into Philosophical, Ceremonial Religious Privilege

Find lord Brihaspati and know Guru's effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify Guru's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Dhanusha rashi.

If Guru is well placed, auspice of Rahu in Dhanusha may be excellent. One hears the clarion call to achieve recognition in the fields of philosophical guidance, humanitarian doctrines, world travel, and patriarchal priesthood.

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore = Rahu's ruler uttama-Guru-6, located in a shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Rahu-11. As a distinguished Bangla poet and patron of needy local villages, as well as a global missionary of liberal education, Thakur-Tagore needed to manage an unbalanced group of desires, abilities, and potentials.

Wisdom and expansion entitlement

  • Rahu magnifies optimism and humanistic faith in empowerment through individualized education.

  • Can be an obsessive coach that believes passionately in their athletes, or a bootstrapping teacher who transforms wayward youth.

  • Can be obsessed with religious faith, to the point of fanaticism

  • a compulsive gambler betting on the dark horse.

Maintains a positive vision through pretension (Rahu) to belief (Dhanushya)

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes * Surya-yuti-Rahu had an extraordinary Rahu-zero-Mula-5. She received exotic spiritual guidance from Aquero - a vision which no-one else could see.

.... although in truth Irregular Rahu may have no orthodox beliefs at all

Rahu-Dhanavana = desire-inflaming passions to acquire the pretend appearance of a Guru-like teacher-preacher. The reporting, announcing, and media-messaging behavior needed to carry out the indoctrination however depends on any graha in Mithunaya.

  • Telepathy 1880-1949 Alice Bailey * Rahu in bhava-9 * started her adult life as a Christian evangelical preacher and Bible course instructor. She maintained a strictly conventional theological perspective throughout her young adulthood and during her first marriage to an Episcopal priest. However after being contacted by a meta-realm spirit guide, her dogma evolved to the Theosophical level. Yet the evangelistic practices (Surya-Budha-Ketu-Mithunaya-3) continued until her death via correspondence courses, lectures, and books.

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes * Surya-yuti-Rahu (11)

  • Miraculous Medal 1806-1876 St. Catherine Laboure convinced millions of Roman Catholics that a stamped oval-shaped piece of pot-metal hung from the neck, combined with sincere prayer, would grant healing powers

One may be filled with a passionate desire to break cultural and social barriers in order to improve humanistic conditions in one's home, one's neighborhood, one's place of business, or throughout the world.

Rahu amplifies Guru's two bhava, by intensity and by days

  • Rahu in Dhanusha or Meena effectively doubles the length of all Guru periods in the Vimshottari dasha.

  • In the total picture, the two bhava which are ruled by Guru are very much amplified and expanded by Rahu residing in a rashi of Guru.

Because Rahu periods immediately precede Guru periods, the potency of experience of the Guru-ruled bhava = increased.

  • Increase = not only in terms of psychological and material intensity of experience.

  • Increase = also by tripling the amount of time normally allocated to functions of Guru (functions of bhava rulership, karaka expressions, effects of winner of planetary war.)


Mahadasha of Rahu for Rahu- Dhanushya
  • General trends, environments, experiences of the Rahu mahadasha

Trajectory via Humanistic Philosophy and World Travel

Depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati, Mahadasha of Rahu-Dhanushya and most bhukti of Rahu will exhibit the script qualities of Dhanushya. The typical starting scene is a university or temple.

The Rahu-Dhanushya experience begins with some variety of world travel for learning or international experience (according to the bhava) which philosophizes one either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of the higher wisdom traditions is required. The environment supports university culture and professional levels of education, and the important actors typically hold rank of professor, doctor, etc.

Priesthood from inside, priesthood from outside

Rahu-Dhanushya might engage in ritualistic behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction * akarshana * to unusual new sources of wisdom.

The expansion of the scope of the personality integrity or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as a graduate educational program or theological seminary. One might start the cycle with a desire to know more by traveling especially to religious shrines, taking teachings, hearing sermons, or reading religious scripture.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the philosophically expansive event, there is continuous development of the wisdom interests.

If Rahu-Dhanushya is associated with a Maraka graha, the expansion of higher knowledge may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce. The death or profound separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. the native is educated into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to take a vow , such as a vow of marriage or holy orders.

Rahu-Dhanushya needs to acquire or remember religious elements of this new actor's worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
