Pitri Dosha: casts a dramatic shadow over the father, father-figures, preachers, proselytizers, pontiffs, presbyters, popes, patriarchs, kohen, kahuna, guru-figures, politicians, high-priests, catechists, and indoctrinators. These characters suffer from amplified, exaggerated, and expedient but falsified displays of dogmatism and self-righteousness. The father or the guru may be an impostor. In cultures where male ancestors are worshipped, pitri dosha suggests irregularity in expressions of ceremonial respect to the male ancestors (shraddha).
desire to be recognized as a father-figure, patriarch, pope
fascinating pelvis, sacral plexus
Social mobility achieved via important
Elevation via Pontification
Passionate, uprising Rahu in Bhava-9 preaching = privileges gained via priesthood, professorship, punditry, presbyters, pontiff, pulpit, paternal roles, puja.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 is overinvested in professorship, fatherhood, guru, pontiff, preaching, doctrine. In the desire to obtain privilege of recognition from the philosophical caste, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 has a tendency to falsify, pad, or overstate the advanced credentials in globalized, university or high-priest environments.
Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic doctrinal philosophies or world travel.
Charismatic but expedient Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 craves a pulpit from which to preach the holy word.
Rahu the Pretender can indicate fraudulent priests, exotic guru figures, or misuse of religious passions for political purposes.
Take care with Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9's ambitious urge to pontificate and preach.
Although located in wise dharmasthana, Rahu is not interested in conventional, step-wise path toward understanding the structure of the dharma.
Rather, Rahu is interested in rising to a higher station of social privilege via the means at his disposal, the means provided by His bhava. Rahu always has an ulterior motive.
Ambitious desire to be recognized for the exceptional qualities of one's preacher-teacher performance.
Quest for higher entitlements via inspirational sermons and inspirational song, via temple discourse, breadth of professorial discourse, exposition of theory and theology, expansive worldviews, world travel
Recognition sought: Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 wants to appear as a legitimate, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings =
If Guru or dharmesha-9 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of beings.
Amplification of the inspirational ideals, often at the expense of the practical commercial skills.
Professor Rahu preaching in bhava-9 believes that one has been chosen to promote inspirational wisdom.
Smoky, oily Rahu in the place of holy worship:
Ketu in bhava-3 chidrakaraka
Rahu in bhava-9 chalakaraka
Rahu-Kumbha = swakshetra
Rahu's passageway is the Quest for Holiness
Holiness-craving ambitious illusion seeking privilege of ideology and super-politics, the politics of entitlement via the paradigm of belief.
The snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.
Pathways to Importance include:
Doctrine - religious, philosophical, scientific, theoretical
Rahu's passions find Opportunity in environments of bhava-9:
seeks privilege via
important wisdom, glamorous divinity, university, theological discourse, sacred scripture, unusual exegesis,
Rahu in Bhava-9
Rahu finds His instrument of self-elevation in the ideological, doctrinal, theoretical and philosophical teaching and preaching roles.
Rahu desires to show a better way of life, to moralize and instruct on the sacred truths, and to explicate the sacred scriptures.
However, the desire to be holy remains a desire. Professor Rahu is a skillful poseur by nature. Whatever wisdom the beautiful sermon of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may hold, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 is typically a well-camouflaged human hypocrite who practices other than what is preached and is concerned not with consistency to principle but rather with achieving recognition of saintly status.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 does not condemn genuine saints who grapple with the passions of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9. Rather the Chandala-9 points to their inescapable humanity as carriers of contradictory desire to be publicly recognized for their spiritual attainments.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 = the yoga teacher who smokes tobacco, the preacher of exercise and clean living who injects performance drugs, the pure-speaking celibate priest involved in personal sexual relationships, and the theology professor with a locked desk drawer full of pornography.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may do much good in the world because His message is certainly uplifting.
But Rahu's methods are typically surreptitious and His power of disguise is nearly divine in scope. Rahu likes to camouflage the human being behind the theological-ideological message .
One may play the exotic but successful role of foreign missionary preacher (9), reaching out with a new philosophy to communities beyond the ethnic root.
There is often a contradiction between the ambition and opportunism natural to Rahu versus the self-righteousness, orthodoxy, and theoretical conceptuality of bhava-9.
Obsessed with Doctrine - or, the Father is obsessed with Doctrine
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 can drain the energy from Public Career , pulling the vitality backwards into matters of global philosophy and international legal doctrines.
Vimshottari Dasha periods of Rahu
Because He teaches in the classroom that is 6th-from-4th, Vimshottari periods of Professor Rahu-9 can interrupt simple but foundational patterns related to bhava-4 such as transportation, housing, schooling, police protection, and the flow of the food supply for the place of settlement.
The nature of the disruption depends upon the rashi characteristics of bhava-4 and bhava-9; however the script is generally that an outside professorial or preacher-teacher agent brings in philosophical or doctrinal viewpoints which conflict with the assumptions of the basic home culture.
It can be for example that the person leaves a secure home with its rhythmic worship and meal patterns, and goes to university where a mixture of people and shocking (Rahu) new theories of reality are presented. Or it can be that the father (9) becomes challenger to the home habits (4) seeming to disturb the placid security of the mother's territory. If bhava-9 is well-disposed, these exciting challenges to the paradigm of belief (9) can be invigorating.
During Rahu periods, one may be deeply influenced by another agent who is playing this emissary-evangelistic philosopher role.
Launch platforms = Teacher-preacher, philosopher, professors, priest, father-figure,
Ambition to obtain the privileges accorded to popes, professors, pujari, and pater-nostra.
The father = exotic, ambitious, roguish, risk-runner.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 = symbolic roles, craving recognition = Guru status
Self-elevation through risky sermons, world travels, religious affiliations with foreign rituals, outsider exegesis or dark, oily guru.
Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 1, 3, and 5.
Desire to Obtain the Patriarchal Priestly Privileges
Self-identified Fathers of a National Doctrine =
Rahu in bhava-9 = craves a privileged philosophical teaching, priestly ritual, or world travel experience.
One feels a great desire to be recognized as a religious guru, father-figure, professor, patron of scholarship, or temple preacher, although one has not yet legitimately earned the wisdom.
Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 often takes sacred vows and gets into inappropriate religious practice that is "over one's head".
Great Leap Forward via Wisdom-Teaching: Philosophy, Religion and World Travel
Rahu will cast drishti upon radix lagna = shapes the social personality of a religious priest, preacher, or exponent of a wisdom-tradition
fraudulent wisdom or true philosophy?
"Desire for Exotic Wisdom"
Rahu Mahadasha - Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha
During periods of Rahu , a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realms of philosophical and religious thought and priestly or professorial interactions.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 on one's own part will strive to match the psychic energy of exotic (not normal for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 ) priests, preachers, pundits, pastors, professors, and father-figures.
The goal of the interloper is to break limits and challenge assumptions about the normal stepwise path of the normal stepwise path of orthodox religious practice and higher philosophical teachings.
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 world-era wisdom one is allowed to explore.
One wishes to feel specially chosen for a privileged role: permission to participate in elite religious and philosophical rituals and wisdom-teachings.
One craves to be recognized as a True Wisdom Guru and empowered high-priest.
Ambassador of Doctrine and Philosophy, but may adopt expedient methods or interpretations which serve the goals of personal entitlement
Although often not a conventionally avowed member of the highest priesthood or cloister, one seeks recognition by the approved religious orders, or inclusion in especially pious societies and distinguished sangha (sangiti, the reciters).
As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu destroys dogmatic moral boundaries and introduces unorthodox behaviors into the agency of:
At the basis of Rahu's narrative = an unusual father.
The father or guru has "leapfrogged" over the typical priestly or professorial credentialing process in order to acquire higher status.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may adhere to a set of unorthodox sacred teachings, become a preacher or high teacher,
Les agents provocateurs represented by Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 = not necessarily an immoral influence. The agent desires to obtain privileged experiences by"leapfrog". One wishes to override the conventional proving steps toward social approval of"piety" (9, religious liturgy, confession of faith, wisdom teachings).
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 disturbs the existing orderly limits regarding:
subject matter and presentation style of orthodox religious instruction
ritual performance, priestly duties, celebration of liturgy
matters of university culture; academic acceptance of research findings
Religious expressions of a most exotic and unusual nature
|Career during Vimshottari Dasha periods of a graha located in bhava-9.|| |
There are many beneficial effects from graha located in dharmasthana-9 including expansion of humanistic perspective, global awareness, and contact with wisdom-figures.
Nevertheless the 10th-from-9 = bhava-6 indicating disharmony and ailment.
As a result, there may be a temporary experience of conflict in leadership roles, ailments related to job performance, unfair agreements, loss of contract, dissolution of equity, accusations, pollution, or other 6-related phenomena according to the rashi of 6 and any graha residing in 6.
If the karmesha occupies rogasthana-6, the professional life remains robust, but the career duties tend to emphasize injury, indebtedness, exploitation, or toxicity, inter alia.
Careers in labor relations, social work, medicine, and other ministries of service are usually enhanced by the 6th-angle because these professions are already dedicated to service of the hurting. Their collegial relationships may temporarily suffer somewhat but the overall mission is stable.
| Animosity and Conflict via Rahu-resides-9 = |
6th-from bhava-9 = bhava-2 =
|During Rahu bhukti if rogesha-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by disharmonious family history, libraries treasuries and collections of financial wealth , and dishonest, avaricious second lifepartnership|

Not beneficial for the Father, who is associated with profligacy, underclass behaviors, or risky foreign undertakings.

The guru may be a renegade anti-traditionalist.
Native tends toward extremes in ceremonial religion , with powerful desire to re-interpret or re-appropriate religious systems.
Wants to camouflage-match the priestly caste in order to receive the entitlements accorded to those who maintain the temples of knowledge and their priesthood.
However Rahu is impatient and impossible to satisfy, therefore the course of study and commitment to consecrated vows which are required for true priesthood or true fatherhood are rarely completed.
May falsify university degrees or otherwise present fraudulent religious or philosophical credentials.

taboo-breaking, privilege-gaining, and desire for recognition in areas of Religion and Philosophy
Fierce desire for liturgical empowerment. Tremendous ambition to obtain the privileges which are accorded to the smoky-incense and awe-inspiring displays of priestly understanding.

Also, priestly poseurs and those with desire to perform sacred ritual without legitimacy; foreign or outsider priests; forbidden religions.
"The nodes of the Moon have supreme importance in spiritual evolution.
Rahu, the material polarity of the shadowy Nodes, takes you to sacred places, associates you with spiritual aspirants, and makes you a partner in spiritual celebrations and observances.
You are a scholar; accredited for virtues; impressive in speech in an assembly; cultured and humane;
veneration, belief and devotion in gods and sacred places.
Helps and supports relatives; contented with the partner. Attendants.
A town leader. Vicious. Serving others and sex with low-class persons.
This Rahu denotes mental sharpness and gain through educational, legal and religious affairs; gain through voyages and foreign affairs; highly intuitive."
