    Rahu

    in Karma Bhava-10

    see also: Rahu in 10-from-Chandra


    state deregulation

    urgently ambitious leadership

    desire to be recognized as a lawful leader via institutional, regulatory, and legislative empowerments

    prestige sought via executive entitlement, social authority, elite commanding positions, governance duties

    fascinating knees, cartilage

    "As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be, you can't see how it is. "

    Ram Dass

    Best results in Vrishabha (uttama = maximal) and Kumbha (swakshetra, widely distributed networks) but all rashi will yield publicity and leadership power. Rahu gives best results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.

    Elevation through Legitimation

    Rahu in Bhava-10 public duties = privilege gained via social ranking and the rule of law.

    Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic corporate or institutional governance.

    • unusual circumstances regarding the father's family


    Urgent ambition to be recognized for the exceptional qualities of one's professional direction.

    Desire to impose order upon large, hierarchical organizations.

    • May claim entitlement rights to rank promotions which are not precisely based in one's own capabilities.

    • Often a rather adventurous "renegade" executive style and an exciting, taboo-breaking approach to institutional governance.

    • Urgent Ambition to obtain "by whatever means necessary" the privileges accorded to heads of state, organizational leaders, top-level decision-makers, governance authorities, social regulators, officers of law and order

    • Craving for high-visibility recognition and respect.

    • Self-elevating efforts to obtain highest legitimacy in executive, legislating roles albeit via surreptitious, camouflaged or masquerading methods.

    • Rahu-10 is capable to appear as quite "legit" whilst masking a socially disapproved or renegade lifestyle


    Fascination with the halls of power.

    Ambitious rise to high-visibility leadership titles.

    • Often under taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances. Often a glass-ceiling crasher, able to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles.

    Quest for high entitlements via leadership positions, law-giving, codifying, institutional ordering, governance, iconic public roles

    Entitlement sought: Rahu-10 wants to camouflage-match so as to appear as a legitimate, respected, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings =

    • governors, legislators, presidents, prime ministers, elite, most visible, elevated, heads of state,

    • officials, officers, bureaucrats, responsible ones, executives,

    The combination of urgent ambition for high respect (10) and disregard for the common folk customs (4) often allows Rahu-10 to "break a glass ceiling" as a person of nontraditional status who rises to a station of highest respect.

    • civil rights champion Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi = from powerless dhoti-wearing colonial to consultant of kings

    • USA Pres-39, intl elections Jimmy Carter = from Georgia rural peanut farmer to USA president. Still typically of Rahu-10 Carter's own political party failed to support him for re-election.

    • USA Pres-32 partner, diplomat Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt = 1930's woman gets de facto presidential powers - and uses them

    • UK-PM 1979-1990 Margaret Thatcher = 1980's woman rises to top UK conservative leadership -- and keeps it (but typical of Rahu-10 she was forced by her own party to abandon her long-held power)

    • Shah of Iran 1941-1979 Mohammad Reza Pahlavi had a stronger dose of traditional status due to Rahu yuti "familiar" Chandra - but still in the end he was considered an overly entitled social climber, and forced by his own countrymen to abdicate

    If Shani or L-10 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of persons.


    Entitlement sought: Rahu-10 wants to appear as a high-visibility, legitimate, respected, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings =

    • governors, legislators, presidents, prime ministers, elite, most visible, elevated, heads of state,

    • officials, officers, bureaucrats, responsible ones, executives,

    If Shani or L-10 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of persons.

    special case Vrishabha lagna one of the most challenging situations for Rahu-10 occurs only when Vrishabha rashi governs the radical lagna.

    When Shani the karma-pathi rules bhava-9 Makara,. The most rigid case occurs when Shani occupies 9, generating a conformist personality respectful of religious rules and often deeply orthodox in doctrinal belief.

    Rahu-10 although strong in swakshetra Kumbha becomes hidebound by the karma-pathi in 12th-from-10th, and the career ascendance moves very slowly due to the unyielding orthodoxy of the religious or philosophical beliefs.

    Rahu remains ambitious but He is greatly frustrated as the hierarchy seems to be controlled by a stagnant but legitimate privileged class. That controlling class is typically religious or professorial in character such as priests, nuns, university teachers, pontificators, pundits, or preachers.

    Rahu in bhava-10

    Ketu in bhava-4

    Public acclaim, social power, and high-visibility positions matched with apathy and detachment in the home.

    • Ambivalence (Ketu) toward the childhood home, homeland, the parents, regional customs, basic schooling

    • Extremely strong aspirations to attain executive power Desire (Rahu) to be recognized as a state or national leader, governing regulator, imposer of social order, iconic figure representing a self-propelled challenge to the existing order.

    chalakaraka 'slippery' Rahu in bhava-10

    • Urgent Ambition to obtain "by whatever means necessary" the privileges accorded to heads of state, organizational leaders, top-level governance authorities, social regulators, officers of law and order, members of the social elite

    • self-elevation toward the privileges of top-executive status

    • hungry craving to achieve the highest levels of public visibility, often as psychological compensation for a disconnected childhood with distracted or unreliable parents

    chidakaraka 'beheaded' Ketu = Ketu in bhava-4

    • Ambivalence toward local customs. Disinterested in long-term property ownership, and often eschews a fixed place of abode.

    • Unable to sustain a deep connection to the parents, folkways, established habits of a people, basic schooling. Disregard for parochial limitations on acceptable behavior; permits aberrations.

    • General dismissal of the lifestyle rhythms, habits, customs, and folk-roots of the settled culture. Mother is unreliable and the childhood security is often destabilized by her scattered energy.

    • Typical placement for ambitious lawmakers, corporate executives and high-level public servants who live in the capital city, travel frequently for professional duty, and are rarely at home (unless Ketu yuti other graha)

    Rahu's passageway = Legal Loopholes, cracks and crevices, smoke and mirrors

    Bhava-10 provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.

    Rahu Risk-taking as a response to conflict

    Rahu-10 = 6th-from = bhava-5, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors as a method for addressing inner conflict with politics, children, or the paternal uncle's wife

    Rahu-10 in Simha rashi politics

    radical lagna must be Vrischika

    in Vrischika, most ambitious = Vishaka and Jyestha

    Ambitious Rahu seeks social class mobility and He always has a strategy to get ahead” by means of the platform signified via bhava and rashi.

    In Simha-10, that strategy is quick rise into the limelight via politics, entertainment, celebrity, and personal genius.

    Rahu in bhava-10 increases ambition for political power in large corporations or government institutions. Rahu's get ahead” method involves top roles in industries such as entertainment or fashion; highly visible celebrity culture; and elective politics.

    In bhava-10, Rahu generates an insatiable hunger for higher privileges obtained via association with the class of royals and bright, creative intelligentsia.

    Rahu Mahadasha- Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha

    Like any graha in 10, Rahu gains strength and dignity in the house of social leadership and the social imposition of orderly environments.

    During periods of Rahu, a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realm of the leadership responsibilities and social-ordering or large-organizational interactions.

    • Rahu-10 on one's own part will strive to match the psychic energy of exotic (not normal for Rahu-10 ) governors, directors, organizational executives, decision-makers, and high officers.

    • The goal of the interloper is to break limits and challenge assumptions about the normal stepwise path toward highly visible leadership roles .

    • Rahu in 10 indicates one who will change social policy in government or be an agent of exotic, taboo-breaking change in social convention.

      • Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi made the rough homespun dhoti of the poverty-class into a highly respectable garment; not to mention challenged the legitimacy of the colonial Raj

      • publisher "PlayBoy" Hugh Hefner similarly broke the taboo upon nudity and bachelor-promiscuity initiating major changes in law and social policy

      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 governance one is allowed to conduct.

    Rahu in Bhava- 10

    • counted from D-1 lagna

    Fascination with iconic, High Visibility Leadership Roles

    Whilst appearing (Rahu) to be an agent of lawfulness and structure for the social order, Rahu-10 is psychologically driven by a desire to obtain the highest social entitlements normally accorded to those who accept the heavy burdens of institutional leadership.


    Necessity of Shani to Ground the Public Trust

    Unless grounded via an equally strong placement of legitimate and regular Shanaicharya, Rahu-10 can indicate a personality which feeds upon the public attention and privilege accorded to leaders whilst lacking the authentic concern for social order that normally characterizes the karmasthana workload.

    Corrections to Rahu's quest for "unearned" entitlements can include a strong uttama-Shani in kendra to radical lagna or in kendra to Rahu.

    Shani-grounded Rahu-10 leaders

    By contrast, weakened Shani may indicate a narcissistic Rahu-10 power-monger who is motivated primarily by a hunger for power for the sake of power.

    Such an ungrounded Rahu-10 is often lacking a sense of ethical social responsibility and may hide deceptively (Rahu camouflage) behind other more legitimate institutional leaders, usurping their power behind a smoke screen.

    • USA-VP/Pres-43, 2000-2008 Dick Cheney = nichha-Shani in bhava-5, a position of compromised integrity via both rashi and bhava where social-duty Shani is weakened by Mesha's selfishness and Shani-5's fear of center-stage roles (5). Cheney exercised Rahu-power via several expedient facade-figures, including * USA Pres-43 George W. Bush. Upon retirement, Cheney publically announced the he "had been the real president all along."

    • nichha-Shani in 6th-from-Rahu suggests that whatever his accomplishments whilst governing, USA Pres-32 Franklin D. Roosevelt was less motivated by a sense of public duty and more motivated by a Rahu-10 hunger to obtain, and retain, the entitlements of highest public office. His power-seeking subterfuge in obscuring the facts (Rahu, obscuration) of his increasingly debilitating illness (nichha-Shani 6-from-Rahu) through clever photography (Rahu masks) caused his peers to question his motives. However most of the public (10) was successfully tricked (Rahu-10).

    Get and Keep Power for a Long Time

    • However unthinkable the extent of his moral crimes (including the deaths of 20 million people) Soviet genocidal dictator 1922-1952 Josef Stalin enjoyed a parivartamsha yoga between Shani-12 (prisons) and Rahu-10 (elite power rank) which locked him into absolute power for 30 years.


    Rahu-10 = usually to be found on display in public performing Rahu's intensely desired high visibility iconic and symbolic roles.

    Due to Ketu-4, the parents especially mother are typically scattered, ungrounded, or unavailable.

    One may experience some Ketu-timed periods of wandering indecisiveness despite other powerful Rahu-timed periods of ambition to high leadership.

    Rahu-10 takes social-leadership risks and cleverly impersonates more legitimate social authorities

    • real-estate financier Donald Trump = a notorious large-scale speculator in super-expensive real-estate and casino gambling projects; multiple bankruptcies

    • Syria President 2002-, ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad gambled that he could win a popular revolution against his regime

    • Pres. Iran 2005-2013, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad + Shani

    • Nazi genocidal dictator 1934-1945 Adolf Hitler


    Exotic Persona Claims Entitlement to High Office

    Rahu-10 can be a glass-ceiling crasher, empowered to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles.

    • Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi = colonial

    • USA Pres-14, Mex-Amer War Gen. Franklin Pierce

    • USA Pres-22-24 Grover Cleveland= political outsider, nearly unknown nationally at time of election

    • USA Pres-31 Herbert Hoover = political outsider

    • USA Pres-39, intl elections Jimmy Carter = political outsider

    • USA-VP/Pres-43, 2000-2008 Dick Cheney declared that during the entire 2000-2008 Bush-Jr. term, it was actually Cheney himself -- not the elected president George W. Bush -- who made all the presidential decisions. While many suspect that this was true, it is a good example of Rahu-10 the usurper.

    • USA Pres-32 partner, diplomat feminist Eleanor Roosevelt = female

    • UK-PM 1979-1990 Margaret Thatcher = female

    • USA Pres-33 Harry S. Truman - no college, parents landless, former wandering hobo

    • USA Pres-35 John F. Kennedy = political outsider, Roman Catholic, young

    May challenge conventional protocol in the style of one's ascendancy to the high-ranking position.

    • USA Pres-32 Franklin D. Roosevelt ran for - and won - an unprecedented, highly controversial four terms as USA President

    • USA-VP/Pres-43, 2000-2008 Dick Cheney with Mula lagna and a strong Ketu ruled as the "power behind the throne" controlling USA Pres-43 George W. Bush

    Expedient professional self-promotion. Self-elevation through risky executive decisions, exotic leadership style. A rogue and a challenger toward existing conventional laws and public standards.

    Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 2, 4, and 6.


    Rahu in bhava-10 = craves a privileged governance role - often by means of a dramatic, leapfrog job promotion.

    • Passion to be recognized as an executive leader, although one has not yet earned the right to high respect.

    • Self-elevation through Professional leadership

    Rahu's characteristic over-promotion may elevate one into inappropriately powerful executive responsibilities that are "over one's head".

    Rahu-10 may lack the appropriate training or the chalakaraka may simply misrepresent the amount of time (Shani-10) that is available to accomplish the assigned leadership duties.

    • Only if there are other more legitimate anchors of public responsibility, personal maturity, and sober understanding of the social law (usually a stalwart Shani) will Rahu's ambitious gains be sustainable past the end of the Rahu period.

    By means of social rank and profession, one wishes to obtain the privileges of a higher seniority.

    Great Leap Forward via matching those in Governance: Leadership, Decision-making, Top Position


    Dramatic rise to leadership roles, under unusual, taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances.

    • Often a "political outsider" May be a glass-ceiling crasher, able to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles. May challenge conventional standards in the style of ascendancy to the high ranking position.

    • Diverse responsibilities, executive empowerment involving contact with outsider, foreign elements, world governments.

    Rahu swabhukti = a period of especially high visibility, exposing Rahu-10's life to the public eye.

    Best results in Vrishabha (uttama, wealth) and Kumbha (own sign, widely distributed networks) but all rashi will yield publicity and leadership power. Rahu gives best results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.

    • Best results for unusual or exotic leadership roles, such as pioneers who break race-age-gender barriers in conservative professional structures.


    Raja Yoga during mahadasha of Rahu also the Rahu bhukti within each mahadasha.

    • Swabhukti of Rahu mahadasha is difficult, persistent, very ambitious, sudden spread of the social reputation, power-catapult to the top, and high visibility of personal actions -- whether for good or for ill.

    • Rahu is empowered in 10 but rarely quite respectable; e.g. the exceptionally public divorce of UK-Prince Charles during his Swabhukti of Rahu mahadasha

    As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu disregards customary moral accountability in the father's family.

    Rahu may introduce unorthodox behaviors into the highest professional office.

    may signal inconsistencies and fraud in the government and its representatives;

    charlatanry in those charged to impose the rule of law.

    Rahu can disrupt the customary methods of leading organizations, maintaining public decorum, and managing hierarchies.

    Underclass, taboo-breaking, or exotic element in the public personality.

    • "Outsider "breakthrough into iconic, symbolic public roles. Popular with the working classes, those who like to "bet on a dark horse", or "root for the little guy". Perceived as an agent of change in the highest echelons of privilege and prestige.

    • USSR dictator mass-murderer 1922-1952 Josef Stalin was raised in poverty with an abusive father, a victim mother, and minimal education; his clinical narcissism - not his social connections - provided the impetus to power

    to conventional observers, this person seems like an inappropriate or vulgar choice for an exalted public leadership role. However if Rahu's lord is auspicious the public becomes fascinated with Rahu-10 and one retains high dignity for a good long time.

    Associated with sudden changes in leadership.

    Wants status objects and admiration of the masses.

    Rahu-10 may profit from power vacuums and social instability.

    An iconic agent of social change. Desires a high position in hierarchy, but has an exotic and taboo-challenging style of getting there.

    Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power= dramatic rise to national or international visibility, accompanied by respect and regard from the elite classes

    decision-making roles, obtained under exotic, surreptitious, taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances.

    • Often a globally recognized figure, who challenges conventional standards in the style of ascendancy to the high ranking iconic position.

    • Rahu swabhukti periods = especially intense, regarding the public reputation. One may be subject to unending public inspection.


    Rahu-10 = very little concern for established regulations and governance protocol

    USA Pres-26 Theodore Roosevelt personally negotiated the building of the Panama Canal, disregarding the legal process of conducting congressional debate, and personally writing and signing the canal agreement without consulting other governance officers.

    Teddy Roosevelt claimed that the legal process (Shani) "took too long" (Shani) and if he hadn't acted quickly (Rahu) the chance for America to develop tremendous commercial activity (Rahu drishti L-3 Chandra) via this magnificent shipping (L-3 Chandra) channel would have been lost forever.

    Animosity and Conflict via Rahu-resides-10 = 6th-from Rahu = bhava-3 = During Rahu bhukti periods, if L-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by commercial business, media messaging communications, administrative behaviors, the workgroup or team, and disagreeable playmates or siblings

    Urgent Ambition to Obtain Privilege of Top-Rank Social Leadership

    Desire to challenge conventional boundaries protecting Leadership Respect and Reputation

    • Hunger to possess seniority status, high reputation, important duties, government appointments, highly visible social position

    "spring forward" to a higher social station through a surprisingly fast "dark horse" unprecedented 'catapult' as a virtually unknown political candidate thrust into top governance roles

    Uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in executive office, tops of pyramids, visible positions of commanding power

    • "spring forward" to a higher social station via The capital wealth of the father (3nd from 9th)

    One can "leapfrog" to temporarily higher leadership status in realms of hierarchy, large pyramidal social organizations, law and order, imposition of orderly environments, often by alliance to a highly visible and well-known personality.

    Top government authorities are also likely to be experienced by Rahu-10 as somewhat disturbing personalities who can upset Rahu-10 's personal routines.

    • One is surrounded by falsely lawful pretenders and their institutional power agendas during periods of Rahu.

    Risk-craving individual with strong desire for power. Rahu gives the result of his Lord, plus Rahu contributes obsessive-compulsive behaviors and extreme hunger for the object of its desire.

    Career is associated with taboo-breaking, foreigners, dark smoke, and other Rahuvian attributes.

    With the nodes of course everything depends on rashi Lord. Check Rahu's role in dashamsha to clarify the effect.

    B. V. Raman,

    • A Catechism of Astrology, part II, page 4 [4th edition 1992]

    "Q. How to read from a horoscope that a person is prospering in magic-mesmerism?

    A. Rahu governs magic and mesmerism.

    • If he occupies the 10th house or aspects it, we can say that his earnings are through magic or mesmerism."

    Oily, smoky things

    Oily, smoky things in the position of executive leadership. Corporate oil business.

    • USA Pres-30 Calvin Coolidge = uttama Vrishabha, involved with corporate oil interests; significant wealth via carrying out their wishes via his governance

    Hazy, smoky "backroom" practices of the authorized leadership. Outsiders, interlopers and subtly invasive force penetrates high government

    Das / Bepin Behari: says:

    "Your mission in life is for furthering some special cause in the world.

    Depending on your status in society and the planetary combinations, this special mission may be predicted; but the real impulse of this shadowy planet will be to make you dedicated to a cause which you will want to carry forward even at the risk of life, status, or health.

    • Undaunted by any difficulty, undeterred by any impediment, you will persist with a sense of dedication, whether you are waging a war of complete annihilation, reconstructing a social order, or composing verses of celestial beauty and harmony.

    Rahu achieves its objective despite whatever hardships it has to undergo.

    • Its impulse produces persons of great merit, devotion, and religious susceptibilities.

    With inauspicious associations and influences Rahu can, however, make you disturbed and instill evil ideas in your head.

    Rahu in the 10th gives rise to Raja Yoga during its own periods.

    • Danger to mother in the 32nd year, to father, in 7th; to patrimony, in 8th. Fortune in 36th year; public honor and respect in 42nd year.

    • Name, fame, status through hard work and skill. Connected with spouses who are disrespected due to their service, loss of land, wealth, health; fear; malice, love for some type of disrespected poetry; or residence in a backward village, etc.

    • Your Rahu denotes that you may be so fortunate as to visit the sacred holy places in this lifetime.

    • Clever thief, characterless, quarrelsome, sensual, dishonest, chattering, miserable, inert, indifferent, unfortunate, living abroad, unsteady, vicious.

    • Few sons, helpful and fearless. Danger from conveyance. Danger and trouble for parents and brother.

    • A manager, advisor or chief of a group.

    • Brave, wise and wealthy.

    Note: Rahu is in charge of a number of not so good qualities.

    The 10th is an important house.

    These things may only appear in thoughts; not necessarily manifesting depending on the overall strength of you and thus the chart.

    • Sensual, extravagant, affluent, winner, fickle, fond of poetry and drama, competition or confrontation, migratory, successful in business.

    Rahu makes you a bit of an intoxicator, wrong doing, sleeplessness, living or working with foreigners, sex with choice partners, finds comfort and pleasure in the company of irreligious people, discontented with own relatives or father,

    • love and sex with divorced or separated persons, or persons from disturbed love affairs.

    Gets support from strong persons, clever but tense. These things may be connected to career as the 10th rules career."

    Rahu in 10-from-Chandra


    Emotionally driven desire to be recognized as a Top Performer in large hierarchies, agencies of government, or top levels of institutional leadership.

    • One's government or corporation suddenly turns against one; one sees the demonic underbelly of power-hungry personalities, pretending (Rahu) to legitimate leadership.

    • Rakshasic actions of the the headman, top dog, or boss.

    Social standing and public reputation are somewhat volatile, with high highs and low lows in public approval, recognition, and fame.

    One may gain and lose high positions via a spring-high-rejection-fall pattern, several times over the course of a lifetime

    • entrepreneur, Apple Computer Steve Jobs was fired from his own company, then regained celebrity status with Apple Computer's devoted appliance users before his death
    • USA Pres-39, intl elections Jimmy Carter was considered one of the most incompetent USA presidents in history. Yet, he rose to a level of great respect later after starting Habitat for Humanity and being a force in the world of intentional democratic elections supervision. By the time of his death he was in possession of high honors.

    One's leadership roles in society, particularly those roles positioned at the top of large, stable, conventional hierarchies such as government and large corporations, will become the unlikely agents of personal disruption.

    Leadership style is emotionally unstable and Rahu-10 may change professional direction or change careers impulsively. Government may alternately promote or punish Rahu-10 for taking risks.

    Rahu in 10th navamsha
    • USA Pres-38 Gerald R Ford 24 yrs lawmaker (10) in USA Congress; ultimately Pres-38. Rahu-10-Simha-navamsha. Ford issued a full pardon for his predecessor USA Pres-37 (resigned) Richard Nixon despite Nixon's attested public crimes. Rahu does what Rahu wants to do.

    Rahu mahadasha 18 years

    similar effects during any Rahu bhukti, adapted to the angle between Mahadasha-pati vis-a-vis Rahu

    The most salient effects of Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership poweroccur during Rahu mahadasha. Maximum outcome during swabhukti of Rahu-Rahu and also during the bhukti of Rahu's rashi-pathi.

    Also strong results of Rahu-10 should be expected during each of the nine bhukti periods of Rahu which occur within the 120 year Vimshottari Dasha.

    • During any Rahu bhukti, expectations must be adapted to the angle between the Mahadasha-pati and Rahu.

    Rahu-10 generates urgent ambition to obtain greater social-material privileges via display of commanding executive power, iconic public roles, or high visibility leadership positions.

    • Privilege-seeking environments for Rahu-10 include pyramid-shaped organizations and caste systems with most resources concentrated at the top; large business corporations; and government bureaucracies.
    • Rahu-10 may have autocratic or dictatorial tendencies; however Rahu's lord must be assessed to see how much is authentic power via the lord and how much is the inauthentic and temporary charlatanry of chandala Rahu.

    The methods of expedient self-elevation for Rahu-10 include "appropriation" of the instruments of bhava-10 such as dramatic, leapfrog job promotion to higher executive rank, grasping for elite governance roles, taking power to enforce legislation, mimicking prominent leader-figure behavior, or insinuating involvement with the peak levels of pyramid-shaped social organizations.

    The first step of Rahu Mahadasha = Rahu-Rahu swabhukti = an especially intense period of craving for leadership ascendance. Rahu-10 activates the public eye.

    Rahu mahadasha m ay signal a dramatic rise to important governance roles. The rise occurs often under Rahu-ish circumstances = taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular.

    Diverse organizational governance responsibilities, executive empowerment involving contact with cultural outsiders, foreign elements, world order.

    Best results = Rahu-Vrishabha (ascendant wealth) and Kumbha (gainful networking). Rahu-10 in any rashi may yield high public visibility and leadership empowerments.

    Rahu performs best in bhava-3, -6, -10, and -11.

    Although Rahu-10 has not yet *earned* the respect of the solid plebian base of the pyramid, He seeks the higher entitlements which are normally accorded to social leaders, executive directors, decision-makers, and law-makers at the top social rank. Rahu-10 is motivated by a hungry desire to grasp these entitlements in a "fast-track" fashion. His ambition is boundless.

    • Typically during the first portion of the Rahu period, Rahu will succeed in rising above the privilege accorded to His station of birth - sometimes dramatically so.
    • However toward the end of the Rahu period, just at the moment when He would appear to have achieved His goal, Rahu typically suffers a sudden fall from the improperly appropriated entitlements.
    • A more normal course of karma in the nativity is then recovered.

    During Rahu periods, Rahu-10's upward trajectory may involve inappropriate, illegitimate, fraudulent or irregular leadership behaviors that are "over one's head".
