Disciplined Approach

  • to Commerce, cohort, collaboration, communication

Struggle to structure a clear Message

  • a sober thinker and a terse messenger

  • criticism from "the press "

  • must deliver instructions in a socially responsible fashion

  • duty to engage in commerce

  • pressure of "age-ism" in commercial environments

  • stiffness, coldness, pinching in the hands, arms, shoulders

  • disciplined, persistent placement for a communications professional

Shani-Mithuna game-plan scripted elements may include:

  • survival fear of hearing the message

  • obligation to impose lawful public systems upon messaging, communications, conversations, instructions, explanations, delivery of information

The Power of No

In a rashi of Budha, Survivalist Shani can constrict the mental agility. One may unconsciously adopt a worst-case-scenario expectation toward future events.

Assessments, analyses, and classifications tend to be articulated with a pessimistic script, characterized by bitter wording, or a vocabulary of limitation, restriction, and tight regulation of thought.

Shani-Mithuna tends to interpret the youthful years [Budha] as having been too much burdened with studies or perhaps unfairly deprived of the time needed for study.

It may pose a growth-challenge to have a happy and carefree experience of perceptual reality when Shani occupies a Budha-ruled rashi since one is so busy with the heavy responsibility of maintaining order in the mental process.

It is, however, afavorable situation for engineers and physicians who must maintain a mental view of structures [Shani] and whose responsibilities [Shani] often require explaining [Budha] physical situations in a basic, physical, cause-and-effect fashion.

Shani-Mithuna may struggle with a need to curtail the mental process [Budha] in order to enforce a sober and pragmatic viewpoint nearly all of the time.

If Budha occupies a kendra in a favorable rashi, the difficulties of excess sobriety and a negative outlook can be easily corrected through an intentional program of reality-inventory.

Shani-Mithuna benefits from making a commitment to a spiritual practice of mental inventory assessment. For every negative traits encountered (in a marriage, on the job, in the community) articulate and recognize also its matching positive trait.

In this way Shani-Mithuna can avoid the negative mentality which so often burdens the Shani placement in mental Budha rashi.


Shani and Budha have a neutral relationship to each other, and this is good news for the prospect of repairing and rejuvenating the mental attitude. Budha is any rashi is an absorptive and flexible graha. The negativities of the placement can be reversed at any time by undertaking Seva with youth (Budha is the Kumara) especially in the area of exam preparation and other social step-wise achievements.

Sexual relationships and Marriage

The only truly significant and difficult pressure of Shani-Mithuna is deprivation of a satisfying sexual (Mithuna) relationship within marriage. Shani-Mithuna in 5, 7, 10, or in the lagna is challenging and of these Shani in 7 is the most acute.

Shani-Mithuna often has a rather rudimentary sexual style which lacks sophistication; one may resist [Shani] learning new information (Mithuna) about the spouse's sexual behavior and preferences. Thus the adaptations and adjustments to the mutual partner narratives which are necessary for pleasurable sexual communication are blocked by Shani-Mithuna s own rigidity and narrowness of expectation.

Nevertheless, the neutral relationship between Shani and Budha does open the possibility of sexual education and increasing proficiency of technique with maturity [Shani].

  • If Shani-Mithuna would be willing to consider marriage counseling or to self-educate on the art and science of sexual communication by using widely available resources, the pressure in place at the beginning of life may be eradicated in the usual fashion for eliminating pressure.

  • That is, pressure is resolved when Shani-Mithuna takes responsibility for one's own role in the situation and stops blaming others nor does one blame 'fate'. Instead, education and forgiveness can work to replace ignorance with wisdom. When the birth-ignorance is replaced with wisdom the pre-incarnationally planned cycle is completed.

Shani = swapathi of 8th and 9th from Mithuna. As a generality, shani-Mithuna does not admit the presence of secretive, complicated thoughts and yet is besieged by them. Prefers to avoid unnecessary conversation. Not a chatty conversationalist. Scripted announcements.

Prone to unrecognized emotional depression due to habitual negative expectations. Hears a repetitive internal dialogue = litany of problems and solutions. Functions best with a strict mental routine. Ordering of personal thoughts will help Shani-Mithuna to stay mentally healthy.

  • Shani being the agent of effort and resistance, shani-Mithuna with Shani-Mithuna the rashi of narrative, announcements, and publications may encounter a pre-incarnationally planned environment distinguished by intentionally repeating difficulties in matters of communication and mental task.

  • Shani-Mithuna = repeating challenge to participate in multiple conversations, attend a demanding schedule of meetings, deal with public relations, marketing and advertising. Burdened by the mundane, repetitive patterns of business administration.

  • One struggles to use the simple communicative language that is required to express the complexity of one's own ideas to an audience that is lower [Shani] or less capable than oneself. Can be quite taciturn mentally, churning on a single idea instead of allowing that idea to enter into relational conversation with other ideas.

  • Yet Survivalist Shani is fairly comfortable in the rashi of His friend Budha

  • Shani-Mithuna feels constrained and repressed by the mental limitation of those with whom one must relate. Shani-Mithuna typically does not reveal the exasperation. Ratherm one tries to slow down and block the less mentalized.

  • One dislikes talk therapy or other materially impractical, unproductive uses of communicative energy. Electro-magnetic initiating thoughts and talk must produce material form.

Prefers a pragmatic, scientific style of correspondence and tends to resist any form of writing that is not immediately practical. May feel the pre-incarnationally planned pressure of repetitive, largely unproductive or ineffective commercial activities: meetings, scheduling, schematics, setting time-driven goals and calendars. Tendency to be frustrated with sales and advertising activities; yet may produce comfortable and pleasing results in the fullness of maturity and time.

Busy Budha activates young, superficial minds. May acquire considerable responsibility for training and supervising younger business communicators such as younger salespeople, younger writers, or younger clerks - and perhaps bear the burden of their inexperienced mistakes.

A highly effective regulator of messaging behaviors so long as full neutrality is practiced. However, should the natural impersonal neutrality of Shani-Mithuna deteriorate into punitive or intolerant criticism, younger persons such as students or trainees become alienated from their aged mentor. Could be a splendid editor or sales manager due to Shani's concern with rules and goals.

Shani-Mithuna may accept responsibility for governing institutional communications technologies as a duty, if other character traits are grounded. May have characteristic trouble with communications agents such as public relations managers, journalistic reporters, newspapers and media representations.

  • Nepal 1945-2001 The Last Hindu King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev [mercantile-explaining Punarvasu-3] [Atmakaraka] [Puna-Shani-yuti-Rahu-Mriga]Assuming the throne of a medieval nation in 1972, western-educated BBBS made an effort [Shani] to increase Nepali-langiage radio service[Mithuna] for the common people [Shani, proletariat] He faced considerable pushback from the ruling elites, who feared [Shani] the social consequences of freely available information [Mithuna].

In Mithuna, shani's sense of social duty and safety for survival acquires Budha-like communicative characteristics. Shani-Mithuna tends to carry notable responsibility for social communications.

One takes a sober and practical approach to a long roster of information delivery tasks in this lifetime. Teamwork is difficult and team-mates may be intractable or unsupportive. Shani-Mithuna works very hard to communicate message to the public.

Shani's workload of message-delivery often involves translation, interpretation, transliteration, advertising, scheduling, schematics, and publication.

Much polarizing catalysis from sexual activity , which he oversimplifies and suppresses; the sexual conversation does not flow easily.

Fears the chronic discursiveness of human relationships. Numerous and highly complex liaisons throughout the lifetime, which structure and define the pre-incarnationally planned learning process.

Gets stuck in a single stage of the multi-stage sexual process. Transfers sexual attraction-repulsion -communication energies into passive viewing, rather than participating.

Nervous and hesitant in the elaborate dance of attraction. Tends to objectify and de-personalize [Shani] the sexual behaviors. Excellent for scientific study of human sexuality.

In extreme cases, can be associated with displaced natural sexuality due to death or rejection by partner. Polarizing catalysis due to inflexible rule-imposition; a bit arthritic in one's ability to go-with-the-flow; responds with less natural agility to the give-and-take of reciprocal relationships.

Generally happy in a monastic communal or semi-communal lifestyle, especially when assigned to commercial or literary duties. Best part of life is often the last part, after the family responsibilities have been discharged.


Das commentary,

" Scientific,

  • trouble and ill-reputation through relatives,

  • financial problems,

  • wrong association with the opposite sex

perfect, methodical and systematic in action if overcomes passion.

  • Tendency to delay matters."
