Rahu in Bhava- 10

Fascination with High Visibility Roles

Iconic-Symbolic and Social Leadership

Whilst appearing (Rahu) to be an agent of lawfulness and structure for the social order, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

Rahu-10 is a Trickster of hierarchical leadership Authority and Empowerment

May be an iconic personality whose risky behavior fascinates the public

  • Ring of Fire 1932-2003 rockabilly Johnny Cash * uttama-Zukra-yuti-Rahu * his songs about passion, violence, infidelity and betrayal along with a highly public extramarital affair captivated a mid-century, pious, working-class audience

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor + uttama-Zukra-yuti-Rahu

Necessity of Shani to Ground the Public Trust

Unless grounded via an equally strong placement of orderly, legitimate and regular Shanaicharya, the disruptive energies of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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 the public-officers workload.

Corrections to Rahu's quest for no-penance, unearned entitlements can include a strong uttama-Shani in kendra to radical lagna or in kendra to Rahu.

Shani-grounded Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 leadership

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

Such an ungrounded Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

  • POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe + nichha-Mangala

  • VPOTUS In My Time 1941- 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 * POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush . Upon retirement, Cheney publically announced the he "had been the real president all along."

Gets and Keeps Governance Authority for a Long Time

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt - Empowered Rahu in cluster with Mangala-Rahu-Guru-Budha in 10th navamsha. A nation in traumatic upheaval gave him an unprecedented three terms of POTUS-32. His presidency was driven by radio and newspaper communications indicated by radical Rahu-3, and remarkably FDR wrote most of his own material

Appropriates authority, dignity, position, rank, respect

  • Foursquare Evangelist 1890-1944 Aimee Semple McPherson * although she had a rural high-school education and no divinity-school or seminary diploma, McPherson rose to the the height of the North American Christian Pentecostal evangelical world. Her Vrishabha attributes of face, voice, song, mouth provided her success via a preaching style that was exotic (Rahu) socially important (Rahu-10) and financially magnetic (uttama-Vrishabha). Typical of Rahu, after rising to high-recognition national stature, her ministry was plagued by financial and legal problems. After a brilliant ascent beginning during the first uttama-Rahu-Return in bhava-10 when she was 18, McPherson died of a drug overdose in an Oakland hotel room, age 53.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 takes social-leadership risks. One may be gifted in the art of leaderly disguise and be able to cleverly impersonate more legitimate social authorities

Exotic Persona Claims Entitlement to High Office

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

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi = colonial ceilings

  • POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln + Mangala. Lincoln was a rough-hewn Illinois Territory circuit rider from a frontier background and largely self-taught. Under normal national circumstances Lincoln would have been a bizarre dark-horse outsider with no realistic chance of winning the elite leadership role of POTUS-16. However he appeared on the national scene in extraordinary times, as the adolescent USA was being ripped asunder by a hateful and catastrophically deadly civil war. Lincoln, with Thula-10 leadership containing Rahu and Mangala, stood his ground for the Covenant of the Union. He remains the most famous president following George Washington.

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter * Rahu-1 in 10th-from-Chandra * political outsider, a peanut-farmer and Navy officer with minimal political experience

  • VPOTUS In My Time 1941- 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. Many suspect that this was true. It is a good example of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 the usurper.

  • USA-Gov-FL 1953- Jeb Bush + Surya

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt = female

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy = political outsider, Roman Catholic, young

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

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva * KSY * not only did Father Escriva rise to leadership of a worldwide social-economic organization; he arranged (Thula) for this Opus Dei group to have special privileges (Rahu) within the larger church, such as private ordination.

  • VPOTUS In My Time 1941- Dick Cheney ruled as the "power behind the throne" controlling POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- 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 legitimately 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".

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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 march 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 Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10's life to the public eye.

Most powerful results in Vrishabha (uttama, wealth) and Kumbha (swakshetra, widely distributed networks)

But all rashi will yield opportunistic publicity and leadership appropriate. Rahu gives strongest material results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.

Strong 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 of Wales during his Swabhukti of Rahu mahadasha

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. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 generally indicates a desire for institutional governance power.

Rahu-ratna may be supportive during Rahu periods.

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 Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 to"break a glass ceiling"as a person of nontraditional status who rises to a station of highest respect.

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi = from powerless dhoti-wearing colonial to consultant of kings

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter * Rahu-1 in 10th-from-Chandra * from Georgia rural peanut farmer to naval officer to POTUS. Still typically of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 Carter's own political party failed to support him for re-election.

  • POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt = 1930's woman gets de facto presidential powers - and uses them. However Mrs. Roosevelt also experienced much polarizing catalysis from other women and from her own status of being a "disdained" woman due to Zukra-yuti-Rahu -Kanya in public-powers bhava-10

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

Entitlement sought: Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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,

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 appropriates dignity (typically un-earned)


Eastern Indigo Snake from Florida, USA

special case Vrishabha lagna one of the most challenging situations for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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

  • Typical placement for ambitious lawmakers, corporate executives and high-level public servants who live in the capital city, travel frequently for professional duty, and arerarely 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

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

The classroom of ProfessorProfessor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 is set at a level of energy which matches the psychic profile of ambitious, exotic 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.

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 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

  • PlayBoy 1926- publisher 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.

As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu disregards customary moral accountabilityin 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.

to conventional observers, this person seems like an inappropriate or vulgar choice for an exalted public leadership role. However if Rahu's ruler is benevolent the public becomes fascinated with Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 = very little concern for established regulations and governance protocol

POTUS-26 National Parks 1843-1919 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 bhratrupathi-3 Chandra) via this magnificent shipping (bhratrupathi-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 rogesha-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

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

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 financial 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 Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-10 as somewhat disturbing personalities who can upset Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-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 dazamamza-10 to clarify the effect.

Jyotishi 1912-1998 B. V. Raman

  • A Catechism of Astrology ,

  • part II, p. 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.

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 less benevolent 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."
