Professor Shani teaching in classroom-3 can signify involuntary moves caused by poverty or ill-health.


As 12th-from-4-homeland, nation, birthland , Sahaja Bhava also shows the dissolution (12th) of the home-country (4th), of patriotism, and connection to ancestral lands.

For predicting emigration both bhava-11 (8th-from-4th) and bhava-3 (dissolving 12th-from-4-homeland) and as well Rahu should be strong. Professor Rahu represents foreigners. One who emigrates would be understood to both transform the home-base (8th) and dissolve the home-base (12th) and be surrounded by foreigners whose ways may seem tricky [Rahu].
