Ravi receives dig-bala in bhava-10
Indicates a socially recognized personality
Professor Surya residing in classroom-10 offers a splendid placement for the politics of executive legislative powers, high visibility social roles, royal entitlements, and autocratic style of governance.
Surya in swabhava of Ravi's bitter enemy Shani radiates structured, regulated (Shani) personal charisma (Surya) in highly visible, highly responsible roles.
Professor Surya teaching in bhava-10 has stationed Himself at the center of a government or corporate hierarchy. Surya-10 is typically a regulator for some variety of government service, or an executive director of an organization.
Professor Surya teaching in the swabhava of commonplace Shani may be handicapped to fulfill His ideal role as the radiant absolute-center flame around which all others orbit and reflect His light. Rather, the light is divided and distributed as countless smaller flames of intelligence organize themselves in a pyramid shape, with each level regulating its downstream in the lower bases.
Professor Surya teaching in classroom-10 shines in executive decision-making roles, and is admired by inferiors .
Regal Surya’s disdain for Shani's lowest common denominator” group dynamics makes Ravi-10 somewhat of an outsider who prefers to perch above the pyramid or at its periphery, so as to reduce the inevitable loss of creative individuality and preserve as much personal freedom as possible whilst fulfilling the karma of following Professor Shani's relentless imposition of conformity, uniformity, regulations and rules.
When Professor Ravi occupies swabhava of proletarian Shani, the unique personal intelligence must be harnessed to a greater social institution; there is less personality glitter and more class ranking effort. Greatest success in government service, elite executive levels, policy and decision-making roles.
Professor Surya-10 tends to produce iconic figures in corporate and institutional leadership. They are high-visibility public figures characterized by a self-directed, independent style. According to the strength of Surya, these figures often hold elite (10) government and regulatory roles in high office.
Professor Surya-10 tends to produce creative, flamboyant, center-stage, dramatic, top-of-hierarchy roles - a leader in one's field of expertise
Because Surya is the arch-enemy of Shani-Fear, Professor Surya-10 tends to produce the "fearless leader" type characterized by the long endurance of bhava-10.
If Surya-yuti-Shani in bhava-10, the endurance may be legendary.
The degree of visibility depends upon Surya's rashi. Professor Ravi is strongest in Karkata, Simha, Dhanushya, Meena, Mesha, and Vrischika.
Surya-Mithunaya is reasonably strong in leadership environments that feature administrative specialization, attending meetings, iconic representations of a Message.
Surya-Kanya is associated with exploitation, argumentativeness and human problematics, but He is capable of rising to high visibility nonetheless.
In rashi of Surya worst enemies who are Shukra and Shani, Professor Surya loses impetus.
The one exception to a low-power Surya is a Thula-Surya placement which is a capable of boomerang into nichha-bhanga. However even in the case of nichha-bhanga, one must endure plenty of nichha along with the bhanga.
Professor Surya's brilliant light of intelligence permits the native to "see" into government institutional bureaucratic hierarchies; step-wise routinized, orderly lawful processes; iconic roles; leadership responsibilities and public reputation
The universe seems to revolve around oneself when the native occupies the dramatic center of :
Surya in 4th-from-7th = the mate's education, parents or mate's childhood foundation
Whether more specialized toward money, knowledge, or pleasure depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of bhava-8.
Independence (Surya) vs. conformity (Shani) is a core polarity in human life. Bhava-10 is a tricky position for independent, creative Professor Surya.
The native must create (Surya) a respectable (Shani) yet self-determined (Surya) career role that balances personal intelligence against conformity to public standards and social duty. Gives comfortable results under the right circumstances.
Karmasthana = the peak of the social prestige pyramid . Strong graha in 10 will inevitably distinguish one 's performance in public leadership roles. However the Surya-Shani animosity will manifest in career frustration and friction with the forces of law and order.
Professor Surya = pitri-karaka * qualities of the Father
Father may holds a socially visible position (10). Whether his reputation is positive or negative depends upon the 10th lord * karmapathi, and its angle to Professor Surya-10.
One finds a central (Surya) position in the drama (Surya) of elite ranks of government and large corporations. (10)
Although they were both musicians and poets, both either served or were begged to serve in government leadership roles due to dig-bala strength of Surya-10
Ironically this placement indicates a natural leader in the social order, who is however very independent by character and thus reluctant to lead -- except at very top levels where they can be protected from the hoi polloi.
The common people may resent the effusive solipsism of Professor Surya-10 personal style, even while the mass of worker-consumers enjoy basking in the confidence and pageantry of a king-like leader.
Unless protected by other graha, Surya in 10 with strength (in a rashi of Mangala, Guru, Chandra) will eventually get into trouble via one's insistence upon self-righteous privilegeopposed to the law of the common man.
If Professor Surya occupies Meza = uttama or Simha, the native prefers expressions of personal genius rather than the well-admired but routine management duties imposed by Shani's house.
Business success for the owner-operator type who has both creative power and administrative control , even if the business grows quite large.
For employee positions (even at the top) it is better if Surya is not too strong in Professor Shani's swabhava-10.
Better if the conflict between independent thought and action - a hallmark of empowered Professor Surya - is reduced, and the native can enjoy earning payment for his work, without independent ideas causing too much conflict.
If Professor Surya is strong here - and- Professor Shani casts drishti into Bhava-10, the result is likely a stalemate: when native fiercely defends their right to independent behavior but because society expects native to accept the constraints of leadership duty , social validation is withheld.
If Professor Shani owns and aspects Bhava-10 containing a medium-power Surya, native may enjoy a solid bureaucratic career in large corporations or government service.
Surya's brilliant effects within bhava-10:
Surya in 2nd-from-9th, wealth from guru-level guidance, from the father's tutelage, from credit for worthy actions performed in current and parallel lives .
Surya in 3rd-from-8th, much professional communication regarding confidential information and hidden assets. A career in managing secrets.
Surya in 4th-from-7th, property acquired through the spouse and business partnerships.
Surya in 5th-from-6th, handsome and intelligent enemies. The father is knowledgeable about conflict and imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in human relations. the native or one's father may have romantic relations with servants.
Surya in 6th-from-5th, animosity toward children and romantic partners caused by ego-membrane need to be in the leadership role. May act with hostility toward creativity and expressions of individual genius. Tends to move in lockstep with large organizations.
Surya in 7th-from-4th, strong ego-membrane identification with the mother's people. Moral sense of Right based in contracts and promises according to the cultural roots.
Surya in 8th-from-3rd, sudden, forced changes in the relationship with siblings and in one's own mental perspective. Mental illness or volatility in the character of the father.
Surya in 9th-from-2nd, excellent fortune financially, benefiting from a natural wisdom in handling hoarded monies and recorded knowledge. fortune from remarriages of one's own first spouse.
Surya in 10th-from-10th, strong ego-membrane identification with government and large hierarchical organizations.
|In Karkata:||Professor Surya-10 is very bright, strong, iconic in Karkata-10 |
leadership roles use the image of the Self to promote the corporate or institutional agenda
customary, rhythmic, home-based Folkways.
Strongexecutive leadership capability, individual intelligence, confident decision-making skills.
Professor Surya has confidence in one's own ability to lead, whether the facts support this faith or not.
Invincible in one's own view but potentially arrogant.
Better results with a restraining drishti from Professor Shani.
In general, highly benevolent
when Professor Surya is well disposed. Parental guidance qualities injected into the public role.
If Professor Surya is too strong here, the public might not tolerate one's characteristic independence from social authority, and Surya may be unable to gain public trust except in celebrity or elite settings.;
Indicates social recognition for executive roles in government service, management at higher levels of large organizations, and especially political appointments. Surya has the karma (action) and dharma (wisdom) to make decisions which affect many people.
If Professor Surya is well disposed in karma-sthana, individualistic; leadership demonstrated in these top positions is exemplary and one successfully merges the bureaucratic ideation of hierarchical stepwise models with the brilliant independence of clear and decisive policy making. Generally there is a preference for policy rather than law.
If Professor Surya is poorly disposed in karma-sthana, there may be weak decisions, unreliable behavior in positions of authority, micro-managing, or petty controlling authoritarianism
Romantic view of leadership roles. Infuses mundane regulatory duties with high prestige. This is an awkward position of false kingship (10 = 6th from 5th, the natural king) but it improves with maturity.
Karmasthana is Professor Shani's swabhava but also a kendra-10 where Surya gains dig-bala.
Professor Surya-10 does well over the period of a lifetime, very much tempered by life experience, and flourishing after age 60.
Depends significantly on the natal position of Shani. If Shani is also in kendra, the native may have very fixed ideas about proper leadership. However one would be less prone to solipsism or excess pride and have a stronger dose of social realism (Shani).
Surya-10 usually does come to realize, via life experience, that social leaders, even in exalted positions of power and high titles, are indeed mere human beings. Leaders are inherently imperfect; they are themselves subject to a myriad of social and psychological pressure.
In reality, leaders are often lacking in ideal qualifications. They may be unethical, immature, and inappropriate. However if their karma calls for public high position, they will receive public high position.
If such a level of realization could penetrate the mind of the native with a strong Surya in Bhava-10, one becomes an extremely wise, mature, capable, stable, and effective leader.
Otherwise there is great unhappiness regarding the gap between kingly and the common law, between Surya's natural autocracy and Shani's natural bureaucracy. Nevertheless Surya is capable of leadership in 10 .
