Shani-Makara game-plan scripted elements may include

  • survival fear of ascending steps

  • fear of quick promotion

  • effort required to maintain and regulate the social order

  • obligation to impose lawful public systems upon institutional governance, corporate hierarchies, bureaucratic process, leadership authorit

Shani-Shani = svakshetra

work ethic, leadership Responsibility, institutions, law-and-order, respect for elders, endurance, clocktime

Akashic memory patterning of Rules, Social Order, Legitimacy.

Shani occupies a welcoming rashi - His own svakshetra, Makara -- but He is still Shani

success comes only after testing and lengthy delay.

Solid position for Shani. Hard worker with a deep respect for the rule of law. Predictable and trustworthy mainstream values. Conventional approach to social behavior choices. Promotes public decency and respectful social manners.

  • Willing to put in the work to gain the social approval which one wants.

  • Conventional and rather pedestrian in outlook and style, but highly regular and responsible in social behavior.

Defined by rank and duty.

Shani generally performs any job required of the position. Not inclined to be disruptive. One intends to build a record of successfully completed projects.

Demonstrates adherence to the rules and regulations which apply in one's community or industry. Has an interest in government and policy, usually motivated by an expectation that homework-problems can be managed if not resolved through better law enforcement.

  • Realm of Light 1874-1947 painter Nicholas Roerich, although a famed fine-arts painter and long-distance traveler, was also trained as a lawyer. He was a capable organizer and administrator of several teaching institutions. He worked tirelessly in his later years with government bureaucrats to gain signatories for the Roerich Pact.

Seeks approval through conformity with middle-class expectations.

Conforms to conventional fashions in costume and behavior. Wants security and social approval. Obtains this goal through doing what they are told. Seeks a materially comfortable environment with minimal conflict and maximal protocol.

Well-liked in business and government. Organized, sensible, productive, and steady. Contented bureaucrat; servant of the people; an icon of reliable character, good manners and public decorum.

The downside of svakshetra Shani is that the native tends to be quite capable of handling social responsibility and - from a pre-incarnationally planned sense of duty - is prone to accept too much of it.

If Shani dominates the radix, the social personality may be significantly (perhaps entirely) defined by heavy responsibilities for institutional governance.

Male may not always be at liberty to execute paternal responsibilities if his time is taken by duty to the corporation or the nation-state. (Dhanus = patriarchal culture, fatherhood = 12th from Makara governance)

Physical stress zone : bones, joints, cartilage - particularly the knees.

[Shani-6] in Makara rashi,

Success in government sponsored or controlled medicine, law practice with medical specialty (e.g., malpractice). Supports military regime, long term martial law, service environments with strict rules, lawful management of scarce resources under duress.

Helps one to succeed in import-export business (esp. buying or selling to government) and work in foreign lands, service work in temples as liaison to government, local official, or program manager.

There is However, an implication of chronic health homework-problems (as always with Shani-6) and if Shukra is involved one may self medicate leading to managed addiction.

Shani-scarcity may block severe self-medication due to inadequate supply.

  • Golden Girls 1934-2010 drama Rue McClanahan + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] (11, community connections) endured a lifelong struggle with alcoholism. Nevertheless, she controlled the self-medication behaviors through personal discipline, work-ethic. RM maintained a lifelong creative career in drama and creative writing.

Shani is the agent of "no-change" , conformity, uniformity, non-movement, non-innovation, freeze-up, seize-up, stop.

Professor Shani's rashi shows the type of environment in which Shani must lawfully be situated; Yet, the people, places, and things in this environment are anathema to Him, and He must always resist them. Shani's rashi shows "where you are stuck" in the pre-incarnationally planned curriculum. It is a study course that you need to repeat.

This course has theory, homework-problem-sets for practice in applying principles to abstract problems, laboratory experiments using real substances, research papers presenting what others think about the topic, projects demonstrating your ability to put theory into practice, and final examinations.

Shani's rashi shows the difficult environment with its features and actors, who create the venue in which Shani expresses fear, anxiety, and punishment, along with stepwise earning of the privilege to advance in hierarchies and imposition of lawful social order.

In Professor Shani's natural rashi of Makara, No-Go Shani says "not 'no', but 'slow'" to the hierarchical, lawful, step-wise, ranked, punitive, bureaucratic, materialistic, socially stratified, conformist, regulatory, statutory, governing characteristics of Makara.

Although slow steady Shani cannot prevent the existence of Makara's constant, orderly status-ranking, Shani can prevent these behaviors from moving forward too quickly.

Shani fears institutional movements in Makara. Even while He facilitates hierarchical step-wise ascent via strict rules for promotion, He needs to keep that promotion slow and tightly regulated.

Shani resists disorderly application of laws and policies; therefore Makara's body of legislation must be tightly regulated even while the size of the resource pyramid is growing. Shani resists any sort of disorderly environment. He hates the irregular, the unanticipated, the instinctual, and the sudden.

He hates any sort of disregard for law, and type of immaturity or chicanery. Shani-Akokera will permit and even support regular growth of institutions and corporations, -- but this progress MUST be slow and orderly in conformity with past models.

Most importantly, Makara-ruled pyramids will concentrate the great majority of power and resources in a small number of elite persons at the top, and top-down decisions are made at that elite peak, while the mass of workers constitute the huge base below.

  • Moral Majority 1933-2007 Rev. Jerry Falwell [Shani-9] [messaging Śrāvaṇa-3] accepted millions of dollars the form of minimum-sized [Shani], religious-purpose, tax-exempt contributions from his less-educated, Typically, Rural, socially conventional [Makara] tele-congregation. After all the modest offerings were pooled, the result was a very large investment fund. This capital allowed Falwell to amass a substantial private estate and to substantially influence two USA national elections in 1980 and 1984. No wrongdoing was prosecuted, due partly to Shani-Makara-9 in the social-ordering, leadership-seeking, dignified 10th-from-Chandra.

Shani-Makara supports every expression of socially approved behaviors, so long as the rules of social order are strictly followed and respect is accorded to the elite classes at the top of the hierarchy. Shani-Akokera may feel obliged to freeze out the hot flames of creativity or individual intelligence in His attempt to maintain uniformity and facilitate lawful governance.

Simha-Makara hold a 6/8 angle to Simha thus Simha individualistic charismatic politicians are the natural enemies of the generally quiet class of regulators who are Makara. Shani- Ena feels threatened by political excitement, and generally tries to suppress it.

Shani does His best to deny, withhold, constrain, and restrain unnecessary action but in law-and-order Makara, Professor Shani feels at home. Shani-Akokera is not afraid of sudden changes in His own tightly ordered environment. Therefore, Shani becomes quite strong in Makara.

Professor Makara-Shani experiences the environment around Him as quite regular. Hierarchies of privilege and bureaucratic pyramids are hospitable environments for Shani, and He works diligently to ascend the steps of the structure in slow and regular patterns, testing and verifying conformity to the law as He cautiously proceeds.

Shanaicarya resists law-breakers, and may act to punish them; He resists those who may masquerade as agent of lawful hierarchies, yet who may express hypocrisy as inferior exponents of the law.

Shani-Makara demands verifiable application of the law to each material situation; proof that those in power have properly earned or been appointed to that power; and regular inspection of existing residents of the ranks

to ensure that irregular occupants are legally returned to their proper rank and class. Shani-Makara freezes disorderly actions via legal punishments.

Slowdown Shani stalls and prevaricates to distract and discourage those who would substitute impractical ideals or unique individuality for the rule of law that applies to all (although some are more equal than others). Survivalist Shani uses various types of barrier and blockage to prevent or at least retard any sudden, disruptive movements within large hierarchies.

Shani-Draco = straightforward and reasonable, although the lifetime may seem to have more legislative and social-class pressure than average.

Shani- Makara dislikes 6th-from Mithuna and 8th-from Simha.

  • Mithuna appeals to small-group process and rapid communication rather than large, slow, lumbering process of institutions
  • Simha asserts the divine intelligence of the Surya- entitled individual, which Shani cannot accept.

If the nativity is free of graha in either Mithuna or Simha, life may proceed cautiously, with predictable uniformity and adherence to the rules of material and social success. However, any graha in Mithuna or Simha may be problematic during the Shani bhukti section of the Learning Pathway.

QUOTATION Das commentary WRT Shani-Makara

" Interested in the higher branches of learning such as philosophy, sacred baths,

learned, talented, seasoned, efficient, traveling,

fond of ornaments and other items of decoration.

Progressive, ambitious, rational and convincing,

gloomy, serious and discontented,

trouble through love-affairs,

link with the low-bred,

nervous disturbances,

tactful, diplomatic and persevering.

In the end success is yours ."
