In 1928 the famous writer Hermann Hesse = Shukra Karkata-8 wrote a poem Einer einstigen Geliebten about his second wife (#2 of 3) Ruth Wenger to whom he was married only briefly, and unhappily:

You never revealed to me the anxious riddle of your being and confiding in love,
You always remained a mystery to me."

constrained and socially oppressive childhood, with heavily conservative social-institutional constraints.
Shani gives much better experience in mature years. Age 6-25 is very (too) early for this level of social discipline and systematic study.
Highly dignified yet outwardly conformist parents and unrelentingly anti-individualistic Christian Pietist teachers.

later studies of 'natural' adolescent narcissistic anxiety+ apathy and the deep need to be validated by one's peers whilst retaining some mystery of specialness (5) not to reveal too much or be known as a fraud (Rahu) are exquisitely evocative of the anxieties and burning (if incomplete) inner truths of the limited but passionate adolescent understanding.

Hesse's identity as an elite writer = L-3 in bhava- 10 Chandra + Rahu + Shani + Mangala -- is recognized internationally only after his death.
During his lifetime, he had had been known mainly in Europe, and mainly by German language readers.

After the late 1960's resurgence his books have remained constantly in print.
