"As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be,
you can't see how it is. "
~~ Ram Dass
Aum ram ravahe namah
in Ari Bhava-6
urgently ambitious to gain privilege via ministries of service
prestige sought via crime, exploitation, illness, conflict, betrayal
"when she was good she was very very good;
but when she was bad, she was horrid"
Ambition to trick the adversaries
Elevation through Argumentation
Rahu in Bhava-6 disproportion = privileges gained via medicine, military, and ministries of service.
Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic servitude, exploitation, or theft.
The stronger is Rahu, the more daunting one's capability to deal with the worst miseries of human life.
Rahu occupies His strongest placement -- the satkona -- indicating ambition to break taboo, consort with the unbalanced populations such as criminals, prostitutes, servants, drug addicts, the socially polluted, the victim-class -- and succeed materially by doing so.
Rahu-6 may become a great philanthropist and social servant.
Philanthropy and Humanitarian Service Rahu-6
Humanitarian Mother Teresa of Kolkata
Rahu in bhava-6 is a very strong and potentially very positive placement esp for philanthropy to the disenfranchised classes. For example, Bill Gates the mega-billionaire philanthropist has Rahu-6.
However, Rahu-6 in any rashi requires conscious management.
You can use Rahula or Rahula can use you!
Ambitious, self-elevating Rahu-6 craves engagement with persons and environments of the satkona shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle:
Although His ambitious methods are often unscrupulous, Rahu in the satkona generally succeeds in His quest for material entitlements.
Rahu utilizes the unbalanced activities, accusations, conflict and exploitation which accompany the breakdown of trust in relationships (12th from 7th) . Crime, illness, jealousy, toxicity, and victimization become the launching platform for His trajectory to Higher Privilege.
Illicit activities of all kinds are handled with deft and crafty argumentative skill.
Rahu-6 is a master rationalizer. Rahu-6 attempts to acquire a Higher Station via litigious efforts to defeat an Enemy (6) -- even if that enemy is fabricated.
According to Behari, "This Rahu denotes destruction of the adversary."
The disproportion, disease, and distress of bhava-6 - including conditions of crime and war - can serve as instrumental means to further Rahu's ambition for empowerment.
Quest for higher entitlements via argument, medical treatments, drugs, poverty, pollution, prostitution, usury, accusations, conflict, exploitation, illness, divorce, and distrust
Entitlement sought = Rahu-6 wants to appear as a, entitled, legitimate, credible holder of elite status-rank in the class of beings =
Physicians, pharmacists, medical workers, medical patients, the sick, addicts, employees, servants,
the underclass, the impoverished, outcast, outsiders, prostitutes, drug addicts, the exploited, the unbalanced, the untrustworthy, the unmarried
usurers, loan-sharks, predators, exploiters, enemies, promise-breakers, alliance-dissolvers, war-mongers, instigators
criminals, thieves, the argumentative, litigators, accusers, complainers, criminal attorneys, jail-keepers,
merchants who buy-sell-trade in vehicles, boats, lands, buildings; the mother's relatives,
If Budha or L-6 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of beings.
Rahu the Rogue is especially beneficial in the satkona which is naturally a rather roguish place full of thieves and victims. While others are arguing and complaining, fearless Rahu in 6 is busy taking a profit. He is a master of expediency; very skillful at exploiting the treachery and jealousy of 6 toward His own self-elevating purpose.
When the supporting graha are noble, Ruthless Rahu may be willing to go where angels fear to tread: into even the most hideously exploitive injustices (6) of the world, such as massive disease, war and crime
|Pain, illness, accusations, animosity, jealousy, and poverty become platform for self-elevating risk:||
Bhava-6 provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.
Rahu's expedient means and methods include:
chalakaraka Rahu in bhava 6
chidakaraka Ketu in bhava 12
Rahu in Bhava 6
Ambitious service-ministry instincts.
But just as easily involved with military or criminal excess
ambitious Risk-taking behaviors exhibited by:
Due to Ketu-12, insomnia or some scattering of the sleep time. May have more service-work hours available as a result.
Knows how to exploit the legal loopholes (Rahu) in order to utilize secret opportunities of the marketplace (8th from 11th).
Self-elevation via risk in medicine, criminal and divorce law, war, problematics, social conflict. Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 10, 12, and 2.
Rahu in bhava-6 = craves a privileged servant or esoteric problematizing capability. A great desire to serve those in conflict, although one has not yet earned the discrimination skills. Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Rahu-6 often gets into rapidly escalating conflicts that are "over their head".
Can signal tremendous illness, self-contempt, or self-harm in the process of spiritualization through excruciating service. Rahu does His best work in bhava-6.
After much animosity and many trials, often hidden from others and quite severe, there is success through service.
By means of medicine, drugs, argumentation, conflict, and divorce, one wishes to obtain the privileges of servitude.
Great Leap Forward via Argumentation: Divorce, Despair, Disagreement, Drugs -
Positive potential for extraordinary disruption-intervention in environments of profound illness, poverty, war
Even more than Ketu the chidakaraka, Rahu the Rogue gives surprisingly good results in Ari Bhava.
Rahu's Great Leap Forward in bhava-6 creates a sudden advance to a higher level of social privilege via a shape-shifting change related to victimization, marginalized people, and inability to locate a balance point in life:
Rahu in divorce-empowered bhava-6 = self-elevation via broken trust, dishonored contracts, bankruptcy, divorce = via one's own initiative or the treasonous actions of others
social disagreement (including war) : instinct to self-elevate via incitement to war, or managing non-native persons such as mercenaries who fight to defend a place which is not their homeland
blaming, litigation and criminal accusations
all forms of logical argumentation: computer programs, legal suits, academic debates
servants, disenfranchised workers, exploitive relationships
"aunts and uncles" especially the mother's relatives
During the mahadasha of Rahu and bhukti periods of Rahu,
one may "re-invent" one's medical, policing, usurious, and litigious behaviors to match the customs of a "higher" social echelon. In marriage, Rahu-6 keeps too much of the power to oneself, resulting in chronic marital inequity.
This may not be intentional; it is often the result of an unusually large partner gap of age, seniority, social importance, political power, or wealth.
Rahu-6 is potentially predatory or exploitive in one's method of conducting alliances, but this negative potential may be removed by the influence of wiser graha upon Lord Rahu. The potential for extraordinary, unorthodox, or exotic scope of humanitarian service is also present in the placement of Rahu-6. Rahu is said to give best results in bhava 3, 6, and 11.
"Desire to Engage in Argument"
Disruptive, exciting, sensually hungry drishti to
One wishes to feel specially "chosen" for a privileged role: permission to join elite problematizers, elite money-lenders, and elite circles of marital discontent or addiction.
Exotic, unorthodox, permissive approach to marital inequity or physical discomfort, and this approach is the catapult.
Rahu Mahadasha- Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha
During periods of Rahu, a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realm of conflicts and disagreements and exploitive interactions.
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 types of service or servitude one is allowed to perform.
Rahu the Rogue provides an extreme desire to engage in conflictand to blame others for inability to reach agreement, along with the urge to satisfy that desire at nearly any coSaint
Les agents provocateurs represented by Rahu-6 = not necessarily an immoral influence. The agent desires to obtain privileged experiencesby "leapfrog" without having followed the conventional provingsteps toward social approval of "inequity" (6, servitude, ministry of service).
Thus Rahu in 6 disturbs the existing orderly limits regarding:
Rahu favors the use of deception and His style usually involves sneaking into forbidden places under culturally false pretenses.
As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu destroys customary moral boundaries and behavioral consistency in the workplace and amongst employees; in the practice of medicine andministries of service; in the mother's relatives.
Rahu disrupts the customary methods of performing one's service and managing conflict.
Rahu in bhava-6 gives a "mixed bag" of benefits and liabilities amongst employees and in one's material workplace.
If Rahu's lord is auspicious, one may enjoy a profit from dealingwith these otherwise undesirable effects. For example, Rahu-6 may work in criminal justice, loan finance, or import-export of exotic and desirable items. There will be some criminal undertone to the dealing but Rahu-6 may be clever enough to manipulate through it.
No matter how successfully this situation is managed, Rahu-6 must learn to manipulate the manipulators.
|Rahu Risk-taking as a response to conflict||Rahu-6 = 6th-from = bhava-1, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors by a conflict with the physical body or the sibling's goals|
A bad planet in a bad house gives good results.
Papa-graha can prosper in dushthamsha.
In 6, Rahu the Rogue disregards established expectations of victimhood, servitude, and oppression.
Rahu can be a great liberator under favorable circumstances.
Rahu introduces a fascination with the lives of the underclass .
Rahu the Law-Breaker generates a willingness to challenge the conventional class-barriers, thwarting the fixed customs of exploitation, and perhaps breaking or at least undermining and slavery .
When Rahu operates within the house of exploitation, disease, and victims, His propensity for illicit, desire-driven action can break the stranglehold of legalized oppression and challenge the historic, long-argued negative expectations of the victim classes.
Initially in life, one may feel victimized or wronged by outsiders and foreigners, by shamans, magicians and fakirs; sellers of illegal drugs and poisons; by sudden and unpredictable outbursts of sexual instinct, by taboo attractions and repulsions by the underclass and its unfettered desire-nature.
May misappropriate the property of foreigners and socially outcast persons.
Potential for association with thieves.
Smoky, oily qualities in the workplace. Toxic working conditions. Servitude in a poisonous environment; yet one triumphs in the end by using this negative place as a launching pad for personal ambitions.
Servants are outsiders of a darker, oilier complexion.
Trouble through hazy, smoky behaviors. Illicit undertakings; illegitimate association with the criminal classes, behind a smokescreen which obscures the real goings on.
Illness from toxic chemicals in smoke, especially petroleum or other oil-related. Foreign medical practitioners and going to war in a foreign land.
The oily smoke of battle (6, war).
There will be considerable illness from toxicity, often psycho-mental in origin, and danger posed by prescription of wrong diagnosis, wrong drugs and incorrectly assigned cures.
Ambitious, self-promoting physicians cause iatrogenic disease.
In case of severe illness, Rahu-6 may find remarkable cures from alternative treatments, or in a foreign land.
Rahu-Thula in 6 : Das-Behari
"There is intense materialism with much sensitivity at the physical level.
Your health suffers from a large number of non-descript ailments.
It is useful to take prophylactic measures against any likely disease."
"... produces great sustaining power ... Every physical impediment is mysteriously removed, success in temporal endeavors is assured, and diplomatic skill is developed to a considerable extent.
This Rahu denotes destruction of the adversary.
You may be a hero, handsome, intelligent, respected, well-known.
Animosity and Conflict via Rahu-resides-6 =
6th-from ripusthana = bhava-11 =
|During Rahu bhukti if L-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by the elder sibling, father's younger brother, mentors, friendships, the source of earnings, unreachable material goals and adversarial social networks|
Health crisis threatening loss of balance.
Financial crisis threatening poverty.
Marital disagreement threatening divorce, distrust.
Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of acquisitive or possessive desires in one's own enemies or members of the social underclass.
Wants (Chandra) to protect the most vulnerable.
Often feels emotionally a strange affinity with socially marginalized or outcast populations: the dark-complected (Rahu) the sexually deviant (Rahu) victims of sexually transmitted diseases (Rahu-6) those impoverished by addictions and abusive relationships (6) and players in illicit trades such as prostitution, extortion, and illegal drugs (Rahu-6).
Sadly, Rahu in 6th-from-Chandra may be a significator of bodily pain due to the deep psychic conflict between one's need for personal safety and comfort of belongingness in one's own social station (Chandra) vs the exhausting effect of serving those below one's own rank whose needs have no limit (Rahu-6).
During Rahu periods esp Chandra-Rahu
Risky approach toward marital relationships due to Rahu's "whatever it takes" approach toward elevation to higher levels of recognition and privilege. Not a karaka for divorce per se but rather an indication that Rahu's cravings for higher entitlement may manifest in trust-breaking for Rahu's expedient purposes.
While often accompanied with some degree of marital conflict is the tremendously ambitious service ministry to the extremely poor, extremely marginalized, extremely stigmatized populations. When the assets are available via Shukra, the placement of Rahu 6th from Chandra or Rahu 6th from lagna can mark a great philanthropist.
Rahu mahadasha 18
similar effects during any Rahu bhukti, adapted to the angle between Mahadasha-pati vis-a-vis Rahu
|Rahu in bhava-6 during Rahu mahadasha and during the 9 bhukti periods of Rahu which occur during the 120 years of the Vimshottari Dasha, the native experiences urgent ambition to obtain privileges via servant-employee, broken contracts, powerful medicines, via criminal or illicit (un-contracted) activity, or (rarely) via problematizing capability. Hungry desire to serve those in conflict, although one has not yet earned the discrimination skills. Via Rahu's characteristic ambition for recognition, one may become involved in irregular or illicit trade in drugs, slaves, or weapons of conflict that may expose the fraudulence of unpreparedness when one gets in "over one's head".|
