desire to be recognized as a pioneer, a champion, an inventor, a warrior, a winner

fascinating flesh-kernel, mesmerizing mottled shell

Rahu-ratna may be supportive during Rahu bhukti periods


Rahu in Bhava 1 * Ketu in 7

Amplification of the importance of flesh-body and social personality attributes (2), often at the expense of the practical awareness of the interests and requirements of partner-other (7).

"Moves " with certainty that one is a member of the elevated class that has been chosen to promote innovation, competition, vitality, new birth, displays of warrior force.

  • Always hungry for --

  • but never satisfied with --

  • any configuration of social personality attributes.

  • craves the elite attributes - bigger, faster, richer, cooler

Knows how to exploit the legal loopholes (Rahu) utilizing many secrets of usury, larceny, infidelity, drugs, servitude, and exploitation (8th from 6th).


"Desire for Extraordinary Personal Vitality"

"Leapfrog" over the conventional path to privilege via the physical appearance,

  • particularly using demonstrations of competitive domination or sexual prowess

* especially when yuti Chandra

Urgent need to be perceived as fascinating, desirable

Self-deception = projection of a potentially fraudulent but socially desirable self-image (personality disorders)

Passion to challenge and rise above the conventional boundaries of personal identity and social ranking that were granted at birth

Daring and exciting "larger-than-life" personality often packaged with glamorous psycho-physical attributes

Nature abhors a vacuum. Opportunistic Rahu finds and fills that vacuum

  • Italy-Fascist Dictator 1883-1945 Benito Mussolini * Rahu-Thula -1 was determined to leapfrog over the conventional structure of appropriate relationships (Thula) in order to create a world in which he, a disempowered outsider, could access the entitlements of privilege that he craved. As his Rahu mahadasha gained impetus from age 12 to age 30, Mussolini was building up a massive power base built entirely upon contrived (Rahu) assertions.

    Expressed in the familiar style of cultural bravado (Rahu) of his homeland, Mussolini's beautifully crafted (Thula) expedient lies and false promises appealed tremendously to the long-exploited masses who were seeking balanced entitlements. Millions of disenfranchised and impoverished workers saw the thug-like Mussolini as a balancer and a rectifier.

"It's true if Rahu says its true"

  • Much of the world believed that Italy-Fascist Dictator 1883-1945 Benito Mussolini "made the trains run on time." However, there is no factual evidence that train arrivals improved as a result of any systematic programme designed or enforced by Mussolini. The mesmerizing Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 personality is increased in attractiveness via Rahu's ruler Shukra-9 yuti Guru in communicative Mithunaya. Mussolini and his handlers (Mithunaya) repeatedly reinforced the trickery (Rahu) with no corrective mechanism * no free press, no surviving political opponents * and under Rahu's spell news publications worldwide reprinted the deception as if it were truth.

Hunger to Possess unique identity through presumptive entitlements.

Compulsively uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in displays of physical glamour, energetic competition, and self-propelled empowerment

Affinity for the forbidden, off-limits , beyond limits, disallowed, improper; identified with international experience and ethnic mixing

According to the strict rules of Shani and the customary habits of Chandra, Professor Rahu -1 is at birth unqualified for the desired privileges. Yet the urgency to seek higher entitlements is a human endowment.

  • physical body appearance = the perfect disguise for invasive rakshasa Rahu

  • with Rahu in lagna, one born into even the most humble circumstances may attempt to slither or leap into the ranks of god-like desirability


We all have a little snake in us.

  • The human body is designed upon a spinal model which at its genetic basis is a slithering, bending, aperture-penetrating reptile

Some are more reptilian than others .

  • Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 = looks a bit oblique. Has a taste for some type of forbidden nectar. (note Ketu in 7, nebulous sexual coupling.)

Misappropriation = repurposing = camouflage

Rahu appropriates the lineage of another, child of another, spouse of another, money of another, home of another, words of another, culture of another, prestige of another etc.

  • TM 1918-2008 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi established a credible philosophical training (L-9 Surya in 1) system (L-11 Shukra in 1) to teach exotic spiritual insights (Magha-Chandra-9) in a modern American cultural context. However deceptive Rahula"the cheater"also caused him to exaggerate (Rahu) the expected attainments, for example promising spiritual students that they would attain (Rahu) the entitlement to fly.

birth identity (via lagnesha, Chandra, other personality factors)

weakened by some type of cleverly masked abuse in the prenatal and childhood environment. One is encouraged or forced via conditions of birth to become someone"better" than one's own natural self.

  • Harmonices Mundi 1571-1630 Johannes Kepler had nothing nice to say about his parents. He was a sickly child with a hand crippled by smallpox who was shunted to various houses, neglected overall, living some time with his grandparents and some in school dormitories. His father was a mercenary soldier and his mother an innkeeper's daughter. Yet Kepler rose to"Imperial Mathematician"and his theories of planetary movement involving the mathematical use of Platonic Solids gained international celebrity (which they retain even today).

"Leapfrog"

  • self-promotion from the at-birth station in life to a higher level of privilege, using the vehicle of physical vitality as a visible icon of risk-taking excitement

Rahu in bhava-1 = Ketu in bhava-7

Chalakaraka Rahu

  • hungry ambition for vitality and vigor, constant restless movement. Seeks the privileges accorded to a Great Personality. Craves conic recognition as a member of the class of First Arrivals (aryan).

  • Fascination with extraordinary individual uniqueness. Intensely focused on the physical body form and features, musculature, blood, athleticism, nobility of the appearance.

  • Seeks elevation to a higher social station via invention, innovation, first-in-field = 'champion', display of social- privilege attributes, being First.

Chidakaraka Ketu

  • apathy toward marriage contract, scattered attention to the interests of the mate, tolerance for broken promises, dispersal of agreements, general disregard for the cares and concerns of others

  • scattered attention in matters of negotiation, bargaining, match-making, partnership, equity, equations, mutual interest.

  • Disinterest or discarding behavior in partnerships. Scattered ambivalence toward marriage contract, terms of a trust, promises, contracts, agreements, mutual interest with Others

Relationships

  • as always, the final outcome of Rahu-Ketu placements depends upon the settlement of the Moon

Ambitious, targeting, achieving Rahu = often constrained by marriage-union to an unfocused, chronically scattered Ketu type.

Relationships

Validation -hungry Rahu is intensely focused on social ascension.

Ambivalent, escapist Ketu is directionless and scattered.

Rahu makes long-range plans while Ketu has a short attention span.

Rahu-Ketu in the radical lagna, in the Chandra lagna, or in the navamsha lagna = a core partnership loaded with frustration.

  • Rahu rages with closely targeted ambitious desire while Ketu disperses like scattershot .

  • Remarkably, these people always find each other. The longer they stay together, the more "bi-polar" they become.

Constant and repeating separations

The time-honored "best practice" with these couples = spending long periods of time respectfully separated from each other.

This pattern of spending more time apart than together can preserve the marriage.

Many high-achieving men and women have Rahu in lagna, and their marriage movement patterns usually involve frequent and extensive absence, with the Rahu person's achievement environment often located in a distant city or foreign land.

The Ketu spouse appears only sporadically for social showcase functions.

  • Young Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr had a complicated Rahu-Ketu situation with Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 + Ketu-yuti-Chandra-7 along with Rahu-Ketu on the navamsha lagna axis. Age 39 at the time of death, he had been married only briefly to a lovely young woman who, aside from her loveliness, was distinguished mainly by her Ketu-ish dislike of focused attention (incoherent Ketu).

Extraordinary Vigor = Larger than Life

Rahu in 1 = insatiable lust for life, desire to compete, and a compulsion to spring ahead of the pack.

Uses the genetic flesh-body appearance as a platform from which to launch the Great Leap, but does not remain consistent with the social-attribute package. Passion to become someone better, higher, different than given at birth.

Rahu in bhava-1 = craves a privileged bodily life-force = striving to establish an exalted social identity. One harbors a great desire to be recognized as a competitive warrior, athlete, or body-model, although one has not yet earned access to the ultimate source of vitality.

Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion , Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may become involved in illegal competitions, illicit athletics or misguided sexual excitements that are"over their head".

In order to propel oneself to higher social station, Rahu the Restless must produce greater passion, more vigorous movement , stronger sexual energy, and higher capacity for sustained warfare. Rahu in 1 follows the dictum of Julius Caesar: veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered).

Rahu must always be larger than life. Rahu in 1 becomes "a legend in one's own mind"a person whose self-imagereflects mesmerizing attributes of distinctive power, extraordinary vitality, and overall greatness.

  • Rahu in bhava-1 = social attribute package =

  • extraordinary, uncoiling of passionate energies

Often a flamboyant lifestyle, full of sexual adventure. More extreme results if Chandra occupies Arudra, Swati, or ShataVishaka;

or if Rahu occupies a rashi of Mangala or Rahu accepts drishti from Mangala.

Risk-taking as a response to conflict

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 = 6th-from = bhava- 8, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors by a conflict with 1st spouse's family (8) or problem with secret-keeping

Drugs and False Energizers

Unfortunately the super-human agenda of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is impossible for a mere human to sustain.

There are indeed times of remarkable achievement, notably the Vimshottari mahadasha and many of the well-angled bhukti periods of Rahu. However in the modern age many Rahu-rising nativities develop drug and alcohol problems.

Nearly everything that Rahu does is in some fashion contrived, falsely credentialed, and unearned according to Shani's rules for legitimate social-material achievement.

Unless the lord of Lagna has exceptional integrity, or some other graha grants authentic access to divine empowerment, Rahu the Naga Poseur - who does not have proper access to the deeper sources of life-force regeneration - will ultimately need some artificial fuel .

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 clings to a fraudulent self-image of godlike health and endless youthful competitive vigor. Especially if Mangala is involved, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 are often"hard partiers " on the"work hard, play hard" programme.

However, Rahu's need to maintain a facade of extraordinary, dominant liveliness often fuels significant drug use. False chemical vitalizers are often used as "health supplements "and"natural stimulants ". The common western"uppers ", alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine, are routinely abused.

Action

By means of dynamic personality and sheer physical vitality , one wishes to obtain the privileges of a higher birth .

Great Leap Forward via Action: Direct, Dominating, and Competitive Rahu's Great Leap Forward in bhava-1 creates a sudden advance to a higher level of social privilege via a shape-shifting change

  • in the physical appearance,

  • via traits of apparent"alpha" superiority

  • style of dress, posture, gait,

  • sexual pursuit, vital sexuality

  • direct, forward, and vigorous movement

During the mahadasha of Rahu and bhukti periods of Rahu, one may"re-invent" the social personality to match the customs of a"higher" social echelon.

Psychology of Unsatisfied Ambition

With Rahu in 1, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 compensates for a profound sense of personal insufficiency via compulsive struggle to be desirable. Just being a simple, coherent single human person is not enough when Rahu occupies the house of core identity.

  • The early conditions of (well masked) abuse are so influential upon personality development that Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 does not consciously remember one's natural personality; or in viewing one's relatively dull natural attributes physical and social, one may become filled with contempt or disgust for one's inborn insufficiency.

  • The channeled elements of appearance or appropriated attributes , while false, are much more satisfying. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may alter the narrative of one's mundane upbringing to give the impression of higher or more interesting circumstances.

  • Caretakers who were vicious or vulgar may acquire a halo of nobility. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 dyes one's hair, changes one's name, speaks a new language, wears a new costume, moves to a new city, even surgically changes the body parts, as one adapts to a charismatic but false more-desirable, more-elite identity.

Restless Dissatisfaction with the Human Body

Rahu in 1 provides a fuel source of restless vitality, which drives an engine of constant seeking for competitive advantage and high-stakes wins. Rahu in 1 surges forward from one echelon to the next. Driven by dissatisfaction with the limitations of the human body, one feels compelled to imitate the impossibly beautiful and powerful lifestyle of the gods.

Chronic conflicts, tricky enemies, and addictions difficulties

"Damned if you do; damned if you don't."

Rahu = 1 yuti Ketu = 7 = bhava-6 = both 6th-from-Rahu and 12th-from-Ketu.

The already quite difficult 6th bhava of conflict + addictions enters an additionally disadvantaged bad-angle position. When the lord of 6 is activated, the Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 nativity may have a feeling of being trapped in falsification resulting in chronic addictive behaviors.

  • the notoriously difficult 6th-from-Rahu = an attempt at quick self-elevation during which one becomes the victim of fraud or tricky deceit during the self-medicating (6) process.

  • Graha in 6th from Rahu = enemies who are sneaky, argumentative, and often able to use Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 s own tricks against him.

the notoriously difficult 12th-from-Ketu = an attempt to withdraw from involvements with the medicines (6) during which one is prevented from"clean cut" separation because 12th-from-Ketu frustratingly 'dissolves the detachment' and re-invigorates the attachment to anesthetic or psychotropic substances.

This sort of self-medicating process which develops on its basis is adversarial to Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 's true spiritual self and unsatisfying to the point of impoverishment or physical illness, yet psychically (Ketu) it is quite hard to prevent getting chronically"sucked back in".

If rogesha-6 also occupies 12th-from-Chandra there could be serious self-entrapment, self-medication, and self-victimization issues.

Divorce, which converts the spouse into an enemy, could result in extremely high conflict if undertaken during a period of Rahu or Ketu.

Relationships

Naturally, Ketu in 7 suggests detachment and disinterest on the part of the spouse, along with a tolerance for long separations. The Rahu native by contrast needs to demonstrate competitively high levels of sexual and athletic vitality. Often the marriage partners spend a great deal of time apart.

Rahu Mahadasha - Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha

During Rahu periods =

A surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realm of the physical body-attributes and social-personality identity .

The goal of the interloper = to break limits and challenge assumptions. Often this person is a new partner who promises to help Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 break through barriers of one's previous life and become a more powerful new entity.

One's passion for connecting to this enticing exotic agent is disruptive but exciting and each iteration breaks some limit upon how many and which type of socially classified attributes one is allowed to possess.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may enjoy considerable success in activities which involve surreptitious utilizationof the personality attributes of another.

  • Rahu natives sometimes self-describe as "chameleon" -- the small reptile who changes its skin to mimic the color and light patterns of every new environment, in order to avoid detection

  • One may vigorously and dynamically"re-invent" oneself, taking on new appearances and behaviors in order to infiltrate customarily forbidden realms.

  • One emerges as an agent provocateur, disrupting the dull routines of conventional order

  • A proclivity toward espionage and usurper of privilege become fully manifest

  • The method of masking one's true identity in order to appear more charming and more desirable to the legitimate tenants of the forbidden realm will involve a certain amount of trickery.

Deception

Deceiving Others - perhaps unconsciously

This native is never what one seems to be. However Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 's consciousness is often completely co-opted by the infiltration of the hitch-hiking personality. One may be locked in a battle between the birth identity and the increasingly predatory claims of the interloping entity.

  • When Rahu occupies 1, there is a good opportunity for what modern western psychology calls "personality disorder"a nd its attendant reactive depression.

Similar result from Rahu + Chandra, Rahu + lagna, and slightly lesser but still noticeable with Rahu + lagnesha.

Rahu in navamsha lagna enacts the amplification mandate = disregard for conventional boundaries or practices in marriage; Rahu in 7 give adventurous Rahu motive to the spouse.

  • E.g., Rahu in Makara (law, convention) navamsha, one may disregard the convention of getting legally married even while presenting a social image of reputable and respectable partnership.


Self-deception .

  • One becomes increasingly convinced that one indeed was born into the higher realms

  • The focus on birthing the false self, and maintaining the fraudulent identity, is so intense under certain planetary configurations (e.g. Rahu's ruler = uttama) that one may develop narcissistic traits to the point of Narcissistic Personality Disorder

  • a new spouse or partner who enters the life at onset of Rahu period = typically under the impression that the false self promoted during Rahu period is indeed Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 's true self.

  • Unless Guru also supports Rahu, the subsequent Guru period may signal a collapse of relationships built upon the premise of Rahu's false promises. (This is one of the reasons that marriages contracted during Rahu periods of any length are inherently problematic in the long term.)

The true laws of one's existence may be re-established during a subsequent Shani period

Rahu periods for Rahu in 1 + other graha

Rahu periods for Rahu in 1 + other graha

Rahu accepting drishti of Guru may, during Rahu period, enormously expand Rahu's quest to enter the highest ranks of social validation of the body-identity

  • Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr

Rahu influenced by Shani by contrast experiences more constraint to the basic conditions of birth, and despite self-reinvention persists in a programme of diligent effort necessary to achieve material goals

Rahu + Mangala or receiving drishti of Kuja provides an engine of dynamic, aggressive, competitive energy which propels Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 into the highest echelons of empowerment during Rahu period, and also during Mangala periods to a lesser extent.

Rahu the Appropriator

Rahu the Appropriator claims the privilege and vitality of another's attribute-shell appearance and socially validated qualities.

Rahu the Trickster may presume entitlement to manifest the vital-force including the appearance, intelligence, voice and gestures of another. Rahu in 1 inhabits the personality of a predecessor .

One may be compelled to channel the persona of another entity.

Rahu the Rakshasa feeds upon chaotic and manipulative circumstances within the physical body and the social personality. The disruption begins at the time of conception, and typically the mother is upset throughout her pregnancy.

  • Rahu the Intruder disrupts the customary process of personality development, upsets the normal expression of the life force being sometimes too strong and sometimes too weak, and makes one privy to exotic and potentially dangerous self-concept. Self-importance swings between humiliating g shame and fabulous grandeur.

  • Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may be charismatically attractive, but one always wants the prohibited, the illicit, and the proscribed.

Desire for experience: to see one's own image projected upon a higher level

Rahu provides an extreme desire to possess the power to create a new entity, in one's own image, along with the urge to satisfy that desire at nearly any cost.

Rahu can break the death taboo, if the breaking action is expedient to Rahu's desire for gain of privilege and rank.

  • Rahu in 1 = Ketu in 7. Hungry Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 tends to consume the life-force energy of the spouse, leaving the spouse in a weakened, apathetic, and socially marginalized position. The spouse may appear dull and uninteresting compared to the exciting, daring, scene-stealing Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 native.

Rahu's style of fulfilling His desires is largely determined by His planetary lord. Yet one distinctive feature of His activities is that they tend to involve deception and sneaking into forbidden places under false pretenses.

individual identity

This person really wants to be special ! May have been deprived of the mother's attention in childhood.

  • Lifelong craving for validation and recognition of the exotic, unusually powerful, or extraordinary qualities in one's muscular, fleshly empowerment and one's social personality attributes.

Rahu disrupts the customary methods of individual boundary marking Andbody-identity development.

Rahu destroys customary moral boundaries in the structure of the personality. One pursues each arising desire with intensity and passion. Utterly self-focused. Little sense of the impact of one's actions upon others. There is plenty of"pathos " but very little"empathy".

  • Due to the intensity of Rahu's craving to possess a person, an experience, or an empowerment, Rahu blunts the humane"sharing" sensibilities. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 with Rahu in lagna, particularly if Rahu is joined with a malefic, will struggle to comprehend the feelings of others. Rahu destabilizes compassion and replaces humane empathy with reactive reptilian desire.

  • All graha gain dignity in lagna, and Rahu is no exception. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 with Rahu in lagna is an extraordinary person who stands out from the crowd. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is socially identified with foreign interests , the revolutionary underclass, mysterious or taboo behaviors, or a threat to order implied in catastrophic social changes.

  • Total result depends entirely on Rahu's ruler and any Graha which may co-occupy the lagna. Rahu in lagna does not give Shukra's fair and balanced beauty. Rather, Rahu confers a sultry, smoky yet charismatic aura. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is psychically hungry for empowerments of every variety. One may be loved, or feared; admired or despised; to Rahu it does not matter the means - so long as the end is validation of personal power.

  • One seeks recognition and achievement, and is obsessively hungry for material-physical-sensual experience.

A karaka for promiscuity . Ketu will occupy bhava-7 therefore the spouse is unsuitable or ambivalent, and Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 feels detached or indifferent toward the marital alliance. Divorce is not implied, as apathy toward marriage is too strong to motivate finding a solution to the problem.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 pursues each desire as it arises.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 Emilio Pucci famously moved from ambition to ambition. First he was fascinated to accumulate educational diplomas (involving many different colleges and universities, and ending with a Ph.D. from his hometown uni). He remained a passionate fascist. Then he was interested in military service via flying fighter planes for the fascist Italian air force, becoming involved with Mussolini's daughter. All the while he had been interested in fashion especially synthetic (Rahu) sports fabrics, and so began his remarkable career in fashion design. Rahu in the Kumbha portion of Dhaniztha is very ambitious and self-empowering.

One is concerned only to attract validation for the personality, get attention, and empower the physical body. Should Shani influence Rahu, expect more self-deprivation and self-restraint according to social mores, but the apathy toward marriage alliance remains profound.


Native has an unusual individual identity. Craving to advance one's social position far beyond the rank into which one was born. Naga-energy in the personality makes one a bit of a poseur by nature. Shani yuti Rahu in lagna = one who may downplay a commonplace upbringing, attempting to Appear more exotic .

One is strangely attractive;

and prone to take risks in one's life (usually in order to gain attention or power).

  • If Shani is associated with Rahu in lagna, one takes are calculated risks with scarce resources, reduced by conservative fears; similar for Shani = lagnesha yuti Rahu

  • if Kuja is associated with Rahu in lagna, prone to adventure with physical risk;

    accidents; similar for Kuja = lagnesha yuti Rahu

  • if Chandra is associated with Rahu in lagna, prone to dramatic relationships with psycho-emotional risk; similar for Chandra = lagnesha yuti Rahu

  • if Shukra is associated with Rahu in lagna, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 is remarkably attractive but prone to sensual excess and financial risk;

    similar for Shukra = lagnesha yuti Rahu

Often the mark of high performance in the area of life controlled by Rahu's ruler , due to Ambitious risk-taking . (However if Rahu's ruler = nichha, Rahu amplifies nichha qualities which can lead those risks to fail.)

In psychic terms: if Rahu + malefics , the birth personality is conflicted. The birth itself is challenged. Native must struggle to enforce their right to life. Native 'sneaks in' to the conception in a surreptitious act: stealing their drop of amrita!

Oily or smoky Appearance.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 may favor oily grooming products such as hair cream or cosmetics

One may have a somewhat naturally oily and darker than average complexion if Rahu occupies a rashi of Guru or Mangala.

Das / Bepin Behari comment on specific situation for Makara lagna = Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1

"You are burdened with family responsibilities and depression.

  • You may also suffer from skin diseases."

6th-from-Rahu-in-1 :

6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu =

The Trouble-makers:

6/12 agency = bhava-6 =

  • chronic addictions,

  • medical treatments, esp. via drugs

  • misuse of drugs, illegally obtained drugs

  • medical clinics

  • physicians

  • arguments in the workplace,

  • litigation and lawsuits

  • servants and employees

  • police and military

  • jail short stay (not prison long stay)

  • exploitive relationships

  • prostitution

  • enslavement

  • victimization

6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu

Recognition as a competitive champion, first-and-best wielder of Force: Rahu wants it - but can Rahu get it?

The bhava which = 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu = most conflicted, adversarial, toxic, frustrating, every-way-but-loose environment of the nativity

  • Periods of the lord of bhava-6 are therefore often even more difficult than usual regarding matters of litigation following broken contracts and accusatory argument, particularly if combined with a Rahu-Ketu transit to the axis of bhava 6-12.

By knowing the axis of radix Rahu-Ketu, it will be possible to predict which department of life will cause consistently the most persistently volatile and recurring yet seemingly uncontrollable trouble for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 .


Compared to 6th-from-Shani

6th-from-Shani-related disagreement and conflict improves with age, neutrality, and patience.

  • However, 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu variety of conflict due to overstepping the bounds of one's rightful place (6th-from-Rahu) plus loss of meaningful engagement due to apathy (12th-from-Ketu) reappears in a new guise during each subsequent Rahu bhukti.


6th-from-Rahu

6th-from-Rahu = the disagreements, disappointments, broken contracts, accusation, arguments, and adversarial relationships which originate in Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-1 's attempt to self-elevate via quick, unconventional and generally unearned increase in social rank and privilege.
