Thrill of Movement


fabulously original

astonishing innovation

opportunistic invasiveness

Quest for Nobility = aryan Rahu-Mesha is intrigued by esoteric innovator roles. Rahu seduces the native into pretentiously superior positions. The chandala strives to get ahead via fascinating movements, new ideas and inventions, achieving primacy, championship, winning contests.

Snake-like Nagagets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of the First Arrival .

When quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, Naga then gets ejected via pretentious supremacy.

  • POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis [Rahu in bhava-11 Bharani-4] JKOwas famed for ambitious Rahu-style pursuit of social mobility via her vast network of friendly association [11]. The second marriage triggered Rahu-11-in-2nd-from-Chandra, alliance with highly-capitalized shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis. Rahu-Bharani = financially focused into the secretively and sometimes explosively contained assets of the revenue-gaining classes [11].

  • Meza fire Rahu Smoke - JKO enjoyed a lifetime of relentless cigarette smoking, purportedly as an aid to maintaining an adolescently thin appearance (Rahu disguise). Even after multiple pregnancies and into middle age, she retained a preternaturally [Rahu] svelte figure. At onset of Rahu mahadasha, JKO was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Behind the socialite camouflage, her lungs were infested with painful tumors from smoking (Rahu smoke). Death age 64.

Great leap forward into First-ness: Inventor-Discoverer Privilege

  • stakes a claim albeit with a dose of fraudulence or pretension
Find Professor Kuja and know His effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify Kuja's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Meshar.


Competition and vitality entitlement

Rahu magnifies aggression and competition, gives desire to be a hero and a winner, selfishness, athleticism, physical-body-oriented lifestyle.

Can become extremely focused on a single goal; which can manifest in a childlike or ruthless way, depending on Kuja.

Risk-rewarding Rahu breaks cultural barriers.

  • In 1992 the man who broke the Bank of England Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros became an overnight mesmerizing icon of innovative competitive [Mesha] risk [Rahu] [navamsha Rahu-Urisha-uchcha]

In Mesha, risk-rewarding Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Mangala-like independent and competitive characteristics.

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts [face-voice Aśvini-2] [navamsha Rahu-Urisha-uchcha] = amplifying, opportunity-energizing Rahu-Mesha-5 drishti penetrates Mnngala-1 + Surya-Budha-Ketu-11 + Chandra-Guru-Shukra-9 +++ Shukra-9 parivartamsha Surya-11

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers [dramatizing-displaying Bharani-1] + [Shani-yuti-Mangala] [Mesha-2] Glamorously confident celebrity choreographer, dancer, actress, comedienne, singer. Gr was famed for her extraordinary athletic power and vitality, precision movements (Shani-Mangala) and iconic status modeling the new working girl identity. Working Girls broke taboo because they earned and kept [2] their own money [2].

Rahu amplifies Mangala's two bhava, by intensity and by days

  • Rahu-Mesha or Rahu-Vṛścika effectively triples the length of all Mangala bhukti in the Vimshottari Dasha.
  • In the total picture, the two bhava which are ruled by Mangala are very much amplified by Rahu.
  • Because Rahu periods immediately follow Mangala bhukti, the potency of the Mangala-ruled bhava is increased.
  • Increase = not only in terms of psychological and material intensity of experience.
  • Increase = also by tripling the amount of time normally allocated to functions of Mangala (functions of bhava-activating rulership, karaka expressions, effects of winner of planetary war.



Kremlin Exciting Fiery Display

RahuMesha_wildfire.jpgMahadasha of Rahu-Mesha

as well as most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Mesha.

Rahu's ambitiously disruptive and shrewdly irregular behavior is energized into dynamic forward movement under lordship of Mangalar.

Trajectory via New Identity

  • Physical Body Appearance, Muscular Agility, Blood Force, and Social Attributes of Championship

The Great Leap of Forward Movement often occurs at birth or during infancy, via a naming ceremony, by jumping into a new privileges not based in the blood lineage of the station of birth.

The typical starting scene is sports competition, one's own birth, an event of male sexual dominance or pursuit, an innovation or invention . one enjoys a distinctive bloodline which is irregular or forbidden in some way.

The Rahu experience begins with some variety of competitive challenge (according to the bhava) which prioritizes one either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of innovation, invention, and new birth is required. The environment supports primitive, competitive and dominating behaviors, and the important actors typically hold rank of winner, athlete, warrior, first citizen, etc.

  • Tremendous ambition for fleshbody maintaining a fit and competitive physique

    Instinct from inside, dominance from outside

Rahu-Mesha might engage in self-promoting behavior driven by sudden, obsessive attraction. The intense focus upon the fleshly attributes of the social personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as sports exercise or warriors preparation for combat.

One might start the cycle with a desire to invent new devices for generating heat and speed (such as engines) or to be ascribed the agency of having completely new, radically innovative ideas. The point = one seeks to be singular, unmatched, and to come in first.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the physicalizing event, there is continuous attention to competitive advantage, singularity, and independent movement. The native cannot bear to be restricted, and one will seek the vehicles and environments which support the greatest freedom of kinesthetic space . One may seek the high atmosphere, the broad plains, or the open ocean.

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha

  • the craving for approved and lawful appearance may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce. The death or profound separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. The native is adopted (often as an infant) into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to take a new name , so that the primary identity is mapped to The earthen body . One needs to acquire or remember elements of this new actor's worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
