Belief in Human Development via human social-economic networks

the connective, lateral, distributive, associative, opportunistic, gainful rashi of Kumbha = a neutral environment for priestly Brihaspati

  • Guru sees Makara-pati Shani as samagraha = neutral. .

  • Professor Shani sees tenant Guru as samagraha = neutral.

  • results depend largely upon Guru's bhava and the character of Shani

Kumbha lays out a latticework pattern of linked hubs that can be infused with Guru's optimistic generous inclusive humanistic energy.

However, the trick with this placement = the means and methods must be explicitly non-political. Guru-Kumbha supports expansion of economic participation for previously ineligible classes, by means of legally linking the previous "ex-lig" out-of-the-law groups into the expanding network.

Best results from a philosophy of social progress that is proletarian, regularized, scientific and ideologically neutral.

Past-life carry-forward wisdom about networks: social, scientific, logical, electronic, cosmic, conceptual -- every variety and configuration of structured connectivity.

Believes in material science . Atheistic or agnostic. Very little natural or pure faith in divine. Faith is intermediated by mentally produced truth constructs.

Expansive Brihaspati gives many acquaintances and a natural affinity for electro-magnetic device networks such as the modern internet and electronic systems overall.

the native is a conceptual thinker who easily understands that there are many interconnected relationships between components of a large orderly system.

[Guru-Kumbha] does not provide specific logic (the logic-giver is Budha) however Guru Kumbha grants a compassion for all peoples based in the philosophical understanding of interconnectedness.

Not a relaxed person but often a productive one

Guru = inclusive and expansive while Shani = punitive and constricting. Expansive Guru in a rashi of contracting Shani is a difficult fit.

For the great thinkers, graha Guru may signal a person Guru who teaches about Time -

especially about very-large-scale networks of esoteric Time

  • Holy Science 1855-1936 Shri Yukteswara Giri [inspirational-ideological Varuna-1] [Guru-yuti-Chandra] SYG transmitted the first English language presentation of the 26K-year clock cycles of earth evolution, and the 75K grand harvest cycles, as well as the yuga sub-section proportions. When his 1894 Bengali original exposition [Kaivalya Darshanam] was translated into English in 1920 entitled The Holy Science, SYG's presentation reached a broader [Guru] esoteric scientific audience.

  • Navamani Malai 1879-1950 Bhagavan Shri Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala [community Shatataraka-3] [Shani-4 parivartamsha Guru-3]

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein [transformative-disguising Dhaniṣṭha-4] [Guru-9 parivartamsha Shani-10] AE proposed a mathematically coherent development of systematic understanding of Time [Guru-Kumbha] which expanded [Guru] third-dimensional physics as earlier described by de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton

Guru-Kumbha = often a Futurist with a "cosmic" viewpoint.

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes [Guru-yuti-Mangala] (2) * although not an intellectual, St. Bernadette directed the faithful to turn their attention toward the next perceptual world, in which she had stayed during her apparitions. She called this next world ceu = cielo = ceiling, sky, heaven.

Enjoys an optimistic expectation of positive resulting forthcoming from philosophical and conceptual science.

There may be an extensive network of associations which includes people from all parts of the marketplace of goods and ideas, including numerous 'fringe' visionaries and abstract thinkers.

If Budha and Shani are well placed Guru-Kumbha can manifest social progress visions in the material world with considerable efficacy.

  • Calif-Gov 1938- Moonbeam Jerry Brown [bargaining-contractual Dhaniṣṭha-3] [Guru-8 parivartamsha Shani-9] Social visionary, huge political network, philosopher, loves science, futurist. Brown had a number of failed political campaigns due largely to being perceived as a fringe thinker [Kumbha] . Overall, JB's economic (11) programs have been successful.

  • POTUS-12 California Statehood 1784-1850 Zachary Taylor [Guru-yuti-Rahu] [Guru-8 parivartamsha Shani-6] [age ncy of Manifest Destiny. Although now dismissed, it was a astoundingly popular antebellum ideology that served to justify annihilation or marginalization of native populations.

Otherwise, the social-ordering emphasis of Guru-Kumbha tends to reduced access innate wisdom.

Prosperity in material things; greatly expanded linkage brings economic gain from populism and dealing with very large audiences

  • Dittoheads 1951-2021 radio polemic Rush Limbaugh [Guru-yuti-Rahu] * populist announcements, ideology (9)

  • Seven Year Itch 1926-1962 Marilyn Monroe [transformative-disguising Dhaniṣṭha-4] [Kuja-yuti-Guru] popular style icon

  • Top Gun 1962 cinema producer Tom Cruise gives a style of theatrical performance that appeals to a broad demographic spectrum, both genders; his cinematic persona has a egalitarian quality spanning several decades and many top-earning film roles

  • Aquero 1844-1879 St. Bernadette of Lourdes [Guru-yuti-Mangala] . She appealed to the piety of the people with her innocent, non-literate peasant persona . Shani-1 mutual drishti to Karkata-Chandra-1 appeals to roots-culture of landsfolk.

  • Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams [systematic-collectivist Varuna-3] [vargottamsha]. [5, creative literature, ceremony, entitlements] In addition, Guru-Kumbha occupies the culturally-rooted, familiar leadership position the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking ]10th-from-Chandra [

Tends to be a conceptual scientist without much happiness from ritual acts of faith. Philosophy is expansive but regulated by scientific principle rather than faith, producing a dry and potentially inhumane programme of social regulation.

Occasionally generates serious mental effort. Less mundane bondage and more conceptual bondage than Guru-Makara.

If the teachings of Professor Guru are subject to prolonged repetition of the key structural elements of the learning pathway (usually, via constrictive drishti) then one may become committed to the development of grand but rigid conceptual schemes which have the potential to be quite harmful since they lack compassion.

QUOTATION Das comments WRT [Guru-Kumbha -10]

" Jupiter in the 10th house means that your attempts at material and spiritual gain will always be tested.

  • You will be tested in general.

  • Saturn will put up powerful obstacles to your progress which you will have to overcome to get what you want or make progress.

Learning to overcome obstacles, especially in spiritual endeavors, will be a wonderful and powerful lesson for you." [end quote]



Q: My lagnesha Guru-Kumbha - will it give good results?


In consideration of the Total Learning Pathway, every placement in Jyotishavidya benefits some purposes and offers less utility for other purposes.

Whether the graha can contribute to the native 's wisdom and happiness largely depends upon the nature of the person's

  • conscious and unconscious social-material goals and values
  • conscious and unconscious emotional expectations and reactions
  • conscious doctrinal beliefs.

Comfortably situated Lagnesha

The lagnesha gains dignity in a kundali as the ruler of the flesh-body vibratory patterns.

Lagnesha regulates vitality and determines the sector of social endeavor in which one may most naturally express one's abilities, empowerments, and talent.

Being a trikonapathi, the Lagnesha contains wisdom-promoting instructions on how to manifest the unfolding patterns of the precious physical body, how to manage its vital energies, and how to grow a developed personality integrity

These are great powers and clearly you have obtained them since you have manifested a body and maintained it for several decades!

  • as ruler of bandhu bhava, Guru grants empowerment in matters of real-estate, property ownership-stewardship , schooling, and parents.

  • In Kumbha - Ghata , Brihaspati gives many friends and a natural affinity for electro-magnetic device networks such as the modern internet and electronic systems overall. The native is a conceptual thinker who easily understands that there are many interconnected relationships between components of a large orderly system. Guru-Kumbha does not provide specific logic (the logic-giver is Budha) however Guru Kumbha grants a compassion for all peoples based in the philosophical understanding of interconnectedness.

  • In bhava-3, Guru opens the mind to a variety of administrative processes, grants positive mental health, and is generally good for commercial business.

  • Receiving friendly drishti of Surya + inimical drishti of Shukra+ lagnesha-1 +bandesha-4 wisdom-teacher Guru receives confidence (from Surya) and handsome appearance with some taste for luxuries (from Shukra). The Guru-Shukra relationship is always problematic because Guru who values philosophy always tries to call our attention to the planes of higher consciousness, whereas Shukra who values sensual pleasure is always trying to call our attention to sources of bodily pleasure such as visual beauty, food, and touch.

as ruler of the Uttarabhadrapada Chandra inside of Meena as well as being Himself in the Meena navamsha, Guru brings parenthood and compassionate willingness to shelter both elders and the very young.

as ruler of 11th and 2nd from Chandra lagna, Guru grants material treasures in the form of both income (11) and savings (2).

Dharmakaraka Guru is a natural teacher, father (bandesha-4 , lord of parental chandra) and friend ( vriddhi-pati-11 from Chandra).

Overall Brihas-pati brings many, many blessings.

Yet, like all graha, Guru has some draining functions.

  • Lord of the lagna is always a dignified graha who brings life-force vitality, Yet, in the logic of the Jyotishavidya nativity

    , ruler of Tanu bhava (1st house) is Naturally, the drainer-dissolver of the 2nd house (dhana bhava) of family history.

  • Guru occupies bhava-3, the bhava 12th from 4th (roots). During His Vimshottari periods friendly encourages the person toward independent life and away from the ethnic-lineage values-fulfillment of the family. Under Guru's influence during Guru's periods, the native might move away from their ancestral home and establish a new home elsewhere.

Is it an ill-considered move to strike out from the ancestral lineage folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms and historic lands, toward an individualized lifestyle perhaps in a new country?

  • Usually the native does not find it improper, but rather invigorating

  • However, from the perspective of some of the more conservative members of one's family, Guru's open-minded and commercially positive attitude might seem disrespectful to tradition.

Evaluating Outcomes

Sujective Moral Judgments of Good and Bad

To make socially weighted value judgments on the results of the graha using a morally critical evaluative judgmental language of good and bad , it is necessary to consider the paradigm of belief, cultural morality, and social-ethical values of those different people who interact with the native and judge the native .

Through some cultural lenses -- including family cultures = this Guru is // good //

Through othercultural lenses -- including family cultures = this Guru is // bad // d

Other People cannot be the judge of the authenticity or legitimacy of Your Own Learning Plan.

Other People must apply their own lenses, their own judgment rules, and their own values frameworks. Other People can never completely understand or validate your own interior spiritual growth process.

Less easily benevolent

  • In the present nativity, the instructions of Brihaspati could be interpreted as 'bad' for super-conservative cultural activities because Guru likes to talk with persons from different classes who mingle in the marketplace [Kumbha] . Guru is less helpful for respecting the most conventional social boundaries and He is not especially supportive of the hierarchical quest to rise to top leadership positions.

  • In bhava-3, Professor Guru is more of a team-worker and less of a Big Boss. Therefore, if one's family or peers believe that the only 'good career' is a national or international power-title leadership career, the placement of Brihaspati residing in bhava-3 is less supportive of those beliefs of others about what is 'good' for the native. Naturally, if the beliefs of others do not match one's own beliefs. Rather than try to 'fit a quare peg into a round hole', an adjudication is necessary and the family or well-meaning peers may need to be apprised of one's own natural suitability.

More easily benevolent

  • In the present nativity Guru is also exceptionally beneficial for commercial business : Brihaspati in Kumbha-3 likes to do business and earn money, especially in matters related to real-estate and vehicles. He is especially gifted in the art of providing explanations and instructions (3). He is good with planning, scheduling, schematics, and small-group meetings (3) Therefore, he does well in virtually any collaborative, cooperative teamwork setting.

  • Exempli gratia, Guru excels in adult skills training which is an expression of Guru's teaching powers in an educational environment that emphasizes adult group-learning. Any graha in Kumbha has a natural affinity with large regulated systems and things electrical, therefore, in the modern age Kumbha indicates computer systems.

[ Guru in the rashi of neutral Shani is tuned to expansion of earthly structures. All graha have their own agendas, which contain a mix of plus and minus effects . All graha are committed to maximizing the unfolding of the Learning Pathway. There is no such thing as a Professor whose teaching has no learning program!]
