Social identity physical appearance Akashic memory patterning

See: dealing with the negative expectations of Shani in bhava-1

Parashari drishti to domains: 3, 7, and 10.

All forecasts improve with planetary support from Mangala.

  • resistance to impulse + obligation to make regular, orderly, stepwise movements (1)

  • resistance to birth (often Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 signals a difficult childbirth experience for the native)

  • resistance to sudden, vigorous movements + obligation to protect the physical (1) appearance

  • anti-change, anti-challenge pressure to conform [Shani] to existing social and cultural restrictions.

Shani's Bhava-1 comfort-zone =

scarce, dry, hard, slow, brittle, disciplined, restrained conditions in physical-body, muscular movement, personality

For Simha + Karkata nativities,

  • yuvathipati Shani requires maturing of the individual personality in matters of relationships, marriage, bargains, negotiation, and trust.
  • usually an elder spouse

Effort due to Lack of credibility (anti-Surya)

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 represents resistance to change which necessitates the effort that is required to achieve a consistent and credible physical-shell personal identity.

The personality may be defined by social rank, class, or position.

Personality socially stony

May indicate a superficially rule-bound personality, stiff in appearance and rigidly concerned with class-rank or social status .

However, look to Chandra to discover the emotional truth behind Shani's respectable facader.

pressure [Shani] of personal (1) responsibility for maintaining the stepwise social order. Yet frustration with duties and often insufficient resources in the earliest years of life - including nutritional or space insufficiencies in utero

Shani-1 may produce a cramped and pinched personality which seeks core validation from earning a position within social ranking systems. Strongly identified with professional workload and social-hierarchical coordination.

Carefully Regulated Action

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 is often materially successful in the tasks of social-status attainment and goal achievement.

The behavior which drives success is // carefully regulated action // persistently pursued.

On the one hand, tanu bhava a svabhava of Mangala should facilitate kinetic dynamic movement, vitality, and vigor.

On the other hand, Shani = agent of cold, dry, fearful sloth who imposes a regime of careful, step-wise, closely linked actions which are always beholden to the social order.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 sets life goals and works systematically toward achieving those goals. Often the goals are obtained at long last. However, the path is not easy and there is much resistance along the wayr.

Acceptance of Social Responsibility

A heavy workload + a durable , high-visibility career.

If Shani activates a kendra or 11, workload = highly professionalized yet socially isolating.

Otherwise, manual labor and a heavy burden. In childhood, Shani in lagna imposes adult responsibilities upon the immature personality. A powerful sense of duty pervades the entire life.

Not conventionally handsome unless Shukra-1, but may be authoritative and interesting, with a craggy face and strong bones.

Shani-yuti-Rahu has a great desire to be recognized as exceptionally capable but due to Rahu may be fraudulent in some portfolio. (Naturally, drishti incoming to 1 can alter the appearance.)

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = stamina and endurance. Sturdy, dedicated to duty, difficult to knock overr.

Public Image, Leadership Roles, Career

Noted for long-lasting personality-iconic careers .

Career often has extraordinary longevity.

Both public career and personal life are distinguished by remarkable persistence and determination to withstand intense pressure and enduringly difficult circumstances

World Leaders and Shani

Shani in Kendra, especially Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = highest levels of responsibility for institutional governance roles

The personality tends to display characteristics of sobriety and discipline. Hard-working, lawful, conservative, step-wise methodical behaviors.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = strongly identified with hierarchically ranked social systems , leadership roles and institutional governance .

Shani-1 works hard to be fully approved, top-ranked, in compliance, and judged perfect under the rule of statutory law . In the negative case, one may be driven by a fear of judgment and criticism for failure to follow the law.

Survival fears based in [akashic memory] enforce the mandate to perform this work over and over again, until the ignorance is transformed into wisdom."Not good enough" syndrome.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = suited to ranked organizations and caste systems, such as feudal aristocracies, government institutions and very large quasi-government corporations.


A leader with Shani in indriya-lagna has inner stamina that can weather nearly any storm, including heavy public criticism and scarcity conditions.

Legalistic approach

Personal change = resistance

Typically Shani's bhava will indicate the area of life toward which the native is full of social duty but resistant to the suggestion that one may accept a deeper personal responsibility for regulating one's own thoughts and emotions. Shani = highly dignified in lagna but wherever Shani goes He is essentially reactive not proactive.

  • One reacts to the pressures of leadership, duty, and legal obligation with solid determination to complete the task

  • Yet, there is little willingness (Surya, enemy of Shani) to consciously change the heavy circumstances via empowered structuring of the thoughts.

Circumstances seem fixed by social law, class position, rank.

  • Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 tends to accept the assigned duty roster, put one's shoulder to the grindstone, and work - with little conscious engagement in the optional dis-em-burden-ment, enlightenment, spiritually easing processes of authentic (Ravi) personality change.


Professor Survivalist Shani teaching in classroom-1 grants personality attributes of materialism and advanced capabilities in areas of social-class systems and power structures .

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = powerfully aware of the Time and Space rules governing human life, and responds to physical signals with socially approved behaviors.

Deep personality affinity with ranked roles in government, social hierarchies of church and state, and large corporations.

Work is Life

One is an extraordinary worker, with stamina and endurance under the most demanding psychical and psychological conditions.

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson was profile-identified with his small-town tailoring business. [Shani-1 rules 3, handcraft] AJ gained a loyal frontier following as an advocate for the small-holder white tradesmen. These hard-scrabble folk [Shani] lived mainly in survivalism of material scarcity. Mainly subsistence farmers, they nevertheless aspired to class-conscious social mobility. They wanted legal access to slave-labor in order to rise upon the backs of those below them. AJ had been raised in poverty and had endured the cruelties of indentured servitude. He supported their bitter struggle against insufficient resources [Shani]. He argued for their Constitutional right to buy-and-sell human property as a tool of economic gain. Despite the passage of the 14th Amendment which permanently ended slavery in the USA, AJ steadily maintained [Shani] his solidarity with the illiterate white craftsmen-farmers [3-4] until death.


Shani-1 may live and breathe according to proverbial slogans like time is money and the early bird gets the worm. Clock-conscious, one may easily rise in the early dawn to get a competitive edge (1) on the duties [Shani] of the day.

Every choice of how to apply one's allotment of life-force vitality (1) is regulated by Shani's survival signals . The two bhava ruled by Shani represent the two strongest survival signals.

After age 50, prioritize the effects of the two Shani-ruled bhava counted from Chandra.

Pragmatic Movement

The upside is pragmatic [Shani], effective movement (1) through the social hierarchy, and promotion into governing ranks via hard work and expedient, savvy choice of association with ascendant personalities.

Add Rahu

If Rahu-yuti-Shani, one may enjoy a remarkably fast 'express elevator' to the top levels of social visibility marked by titles like pre sident or prime minister ('pri' =1) or other nomenclature to indicate primacy in a hierarchy or elite-governed system.

The downside is a certain paralysis [Shani] wherein the native is unable to function socially without the structure of institutional responsibilities. One is heavily identified with the corporation or bureaucracy, and the dignity conferred by highly visible leadership positions within those organizations. Such as native may experience a dramatic loss of self upon retirement from public roles, loss of the structure of the daily calendar, and the importance attributed to one's top-down decision-making empowerments. s.

Professional Retirement - caveat

Personal life is often rocky. Emotional compassion for others and spiritual nourishment for self = irrelevant while materially "tough decisions " must be made. The view of life overall is pinched and constricted.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 personalities ought not to retire from public life . If one professional commitment ends naturally, another of similar scope should be sought to replace it. The native 's sense of self-worth is dependent upon the safety signal provided by frequent re-validation of one's importance to social organizations.


Shani is all about Legitimation. When Shani occupies bhava-1, the entire social personality -- and the flesh body shell that the personality uses to advertise itself -- are focused upon the task of achieving social legitimacy.

Shani's program supports the propagation of the human species, and Therefore, Shani promotes safety, food hoarding, strong shelters, attentive parenting, and lawful social behavior.

It is important to appreciate that Shani is explicitly not concerned with the well-being of any one individual. Scarcity-imposing Shanaicarya is concerned with the continuation of civilization as whole .

  • Individuals are not Shani's unit of measure.

  • Shani represents society as an organic entity with its own needs, structure, and lifespan.

Social standing, social approval, social recognition, and social validation are the means by which Shani achieves His core survival goals. Shani sends a brain signal of scarcity and the native perceives that the available resources are not enough.

Shani's "No" message is notably negative: don't spend, don't waste, don't disturb, don't move .

Identity = social rank, professional standing = working class

Typically Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 creates a hard-working, conservative man (or woman) of the people personality distinguished by a strong working class identity and awareness of the social consequences of one's individual actions.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx [financial-heritage Purvabhadra-2] iconic relationship to government and class structure, with emphasis on the experience of the working classes

A decision-maker with steady personal habits, a follower of rank and routine. The native is attentive to matters of personal safety and order in the group.

Shani in lagna gives extra sensitivity to perceptions of "who's who" in the status hierarchy. The reason Shani is so concerned with rank and status is that His survival plan depends on the good will and protection of Others.

Shani is respectful of ranked power and cautious in His movements, if indeed there is any movement at all.

Powerfully identified with one's station of birth and one's work .


Mindful of the fact that in harsh survival conditions (like food scarcity) the leaders of the system are saved first, the Shani-rising adult is often professionalized with a preference for core social-structural management skills (governance-law, economics-finance, medicine, agriculture) and safety-regulatory functions.

The bhava owned by Shani will give more detail about the professional orientation.

For example,

  • Shani = bhratru-pati-3 for the Vṛścika indriya-lagna = commercial business, meetings, teamwork, reports

  • Shani = rogesha-6 for the Simha indriya-lagna = medicine, social conflicts, management of the underclass

  • Shani = vriddhi-pati-11 for the Mesha indriya-lagna = economics, regulation of participatory networks

Shani = dhanapati-2 for the Makara indriya-lagna = finance-banking, food storage, fuel reserves, stockpiles of natural resource


Naturally if Shani shares the lagna with His adversaries - Rahu, Ketu, Mangala, or Surya - the identity will feature less concern with system regulation and more individualistic or eccentric traits.

Benefits of Shani in Kendra:

  • in kendra (1, 4, 7, 10) lawful Shani = slow and steady toward material and social success.

  • Shani imposes routines, conventional behavior patterns, predictable environments, and realistic expectations .

  • In kendra, Shani's influence is overall favorable due to the value of regularity in those environments.

Shani's friendship with the natural rulers

  • In general, Shani drishti upon domain 7 partnerships = svabhava of friend Shukra = faithful and dutiful

  • In general, Shani drishti upon bhava-10 profession= svabhava of self Shani = lawful and responsible

  • In general, Shani drishti upon domain 3 daily communications = svabhava of neutral Budha = pragmatic and efficient in business, although prone toward criticism and somewhat depressed

Retardation, resistance, and restraint upon :

  • communications (3)

  • marriage (7)

  • career (10).

Shani's cautious drishti upon partnerships and career imposes a fixed calendar routine and prevents sudden changes, which is generally a favorable influence in those environments.


Shani in 1 impedes and retards pre-natal or birth-event conditions; the native will have some stunting or constriction according to the rashi.

  1. Mesha = stunting or constriction of the head, skull, muscles, or blood

  2. Vrishabha= stunting or constriction of the eyes, jaw, teeth, tongue, mouth

  3. Mithuna = stunting or constriction of the lungs, shoulders, arms, hands

  4. Karkata = stunting or constriction of the breasts or chest; stomach; glandular and lymph systems

  5. Simha = stunting or constriction of the heart or spine

  6. Kanya = stunting or constriction of the intestines, digestive tract

  7. Tula = stunting or constriction of the kidneys, paired organs, adrenal glands

  8. Vṛścika = stunting or constriction of the sexual-reproductive organs and hormone-glands (often issues with the testicles or ovaries, including sterility). Improved prognosis if Chandra or Guru = also in lagna.

  9. Dhanus = stunting or constriction of the sacral plexus, pelvic bones, hips, upper thighs

  10. Makara = stunting or constriction of the skeleton, bones, cartilage, joints

  11. Kumbha = stunting or constriction of the skin, nerves

  12. Mesha = stunting or constriction of the feet

the native 's birth may have been delayed .

  • If Professor Shani joins Professor Rahu , or Professor Shani joins Professor; Kuja, the child starts life in a climate of resistance to one's presence in the family, or perhaps complications of birth. The mother may be overburdened.

Habits of fleshly comportment, such as the way one looks or moves , are resistant to change.

the native who wishes to change one's package of social attributes , such as the ethno-cultural appearance, the social demographic markers, the musculature or body physique, will find such a project to be slow-going and demanding much time.

Try as one might to change the package of attributes, the original (1) identity from the time of birth may persist.

Shani-1 gets attacked by fearful public

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson [Shani-Vrischika in analytical-complaining Anuradha-2] ++ [Mangala-Kanya-11\. AJ authorized the USA purchase of Alaska Territory from seller Russia. The deal was brokered via Secretary of State Mr. William Seward. Because few Americans could imagine ever living in Alaska, the expensive acquisition was mockingly called "Seward's Folly" .

  • During his Shani-Budha bhukti [Budha rules 11-economics] POTUS-17 was harshly publicly criticized for wasteful spending. When Shani occupies a rashi of enemy fighter Mangala, the public [Shani] may be aggressively vindictive, due to Shani's characteristic fearful ignorance. After AJ's death, oil-and-mineral rich Alaska became a high-value national asset, and the far-northern state became a beloved home to many citizens.



Saturnus from Codex de Sphaera c. 1469 CE

TOPICS of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1

LEARNING PATHWAY of Shani-1 may involve necessary dealings with

  • survival fear of extinction and annihilation = fear of becoming zero (nihil)
  • resistance to primitive competitive impulse
  • responsibility to maintain lawful response to innovative change
  • blessed by a hardy, enduring, survival-ready physical body
  • must make regular, stepwise movements
  • obligatory actions imposed by Akashic memory patterning of scarcity and duty
  • self-judgment upon the social personality
  • resistance to one's own bodily appearance
  • obligation to dominate others

punishment energy = social judgment upon the personality and flesh-body appearance

  • grief for the loss of free movement

Resistance to Charismatic Individuality

Ironically, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 = so busy working and carrying public responsibilities that there is no time to develop one's individuality . Shani activates the masses; one is primarily identified with large corporations, governments, and social mass movement.

Although Shani has dignity in kendra where He provides skilled leadership and the power to impose an orderly environment on one's downstream, one's fundamental identity is populist, with the vast legions of the common man.

Naturally, if other graha induce a charismatic glitter, this somber style can lighten up considerably. Also, one may develop extraordinary charismatic intelligence in other channels which do not rely on the physical appearance

Shani = ignorance

  • Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 tends to not know the individual self.

  • Personal identity may consist primarily of socially expected roles and attributes.

must maintain movement

stiff shell, tight limitations, fixed identity, inflexible, reliable

rigidly structured, duty-bound, lawful personality

pre-incarnationally planned duty restricts individual identity development

time-bound physical body generates resistance to the truth of eternal Self

intimidated by difficult physical-movement decisions, afraid of injury via competitive actions

= a social ranking functionary who works the socially approved system of physical appearances and hierarchical identities. This person must apply sustained effort with limited resources [Shani] toward the maintenance of identity as defined by social rank and position.

Some difficulties or maturation are required before obtaining confidence in life entitlement. This personality is profoundly affected by some type of survival fear which makes one a very hard worker.

Survival patterns are imprinted at the very earliest developmental stages. Survival patterns range from primitive to highly sophisticated, according to the nativity.

Exempli gratia, when Shani is otherwise well-disposed, native is exceptionally responsible.

If Budha is benevolent, survival patterns are engaged with sharp analytical thinking.

If Surya is strong, the native is remarkably self-sufficient.

However, there is no escaping the damage that Shani does in lagna. The native has a overwhelming strong perception of structures, rules, limitations, Scarcity and Time . This perception will be channeled through the mechanism of the entire nativity.

Typical mistakes due to past-life pre-incarnationally planned ignorance

Slow personality development

Hardworking but not quick to profit from new ideas

Professor Shani's classroom in bhava-1 features the experience of matching the fear of the animal body, fear of competition, fear of survival , fear of blood, fear of running.

Professor Shani's instruction = " stop matching that which is not lawful to you" (stop matching the fears of others) and proceed with care.Shani narrative in bhava-1

Physical behaviors are fundamentally stubborn, persistent, conservative and slow.

Appearance and Social Identity

Shani prefers that matters of his residence should be modest, respectable, and regulated. In bhava-1, Shani favors a conforming appearance, traditional costume, and identity with some large corporate organization or government.

Naturally, other graha joining Shani in lagna or drishti from more exciting planets can alter the appearance. (Shukra adds attractiveness, a Guru drishti adds height, etc.) Yet, Shani the Regulator will noticeably prefer a personality and physique that conforms to mainstream expectations in the culture of origin or the culture of choice.

Unless a large cluster of additional graha join Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 giving non-conventional appearance, it is quite rare to find a flamboyant theatrical type with Shani in lagna.

The Shani-rising native is born to take social responsibility; one gravitates Naturally, toward executive roles in corporate hierarchies and government.

Example of multiple graha producing an unconventional appearance

Personality Features: Habits and Routines

The French-English word "routine" is derived from the older Germanic root "rut" , related to 'root' and other words for deepening, holes, etc. Routine is a nice word for "rut" :)

The social personality does best when supported by regular procedures, habits, And routines. ( Not always "good" habits; but always "regular" habits!)

  • Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 is exceptionally conscious of Time [Shani] and if Shani is benevolent one's time-management skills are of a high caliber. The native is remarkably organized and materially productive.

  • Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 does not confer Surya-style creativity or intelligence). Rather, Old Kronos grants a work ethos and material grounding in space and time.

Shani's Hard Edge

  • Rough or tough"hard-boiled" edge to the personal appearance: one appears older, more responsible, burdened by duty, judgmental, or bitterly sober. Rather plain looking as a rule.

  • Psychologically identified with hard-working, dry, cold, brittle, hard-packed, unfertile and unyielding environments, such as the high desert (cold and hard) and those who make their living (labor, Shani) in tough places with scarce resources. Especially a shortage of water.

Transit of Shani

  • When gochara Shani moves across bhava-1 from lagna (material) or bhava-1 from Chandra (emotional) = restructure, redefine,"start over" .

Resistance to Body validation

  • Resistance toward healthy vitality, personal glamour, competitive strength, athletic vigor, unique personal identity .

  • The particular type of resisted identity will be indicated by the rashi and any companion graha.

  • Awkward in youth.

  • Nevertheless, The earthen body is highly disciplined and the native is usually committed to a demanding, rather uninteresting routine of muscular exercise.

Agents of tanubhava enact a fearful, life-threatening [Shani] script of punishment and restriction.

Agents of bhava-1 = the personality life-force, physical appearance, musculature, blood, competitive and innovative pranic energy. The bhava-1 agents say:

You follow the rules, or else we (the flesh-body life-sustainers) will eject you from your body (extinguish the flame of your life force) and freeze your access to survival.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 narrative of the threat of physical extinction is further embroidered with contributing voices from Shani's rashi, incoming drishti to bhava-1, Shani's angle from Chandra, Shani's placement in navamsha, planetary tenants in bhava ruled by Shani

" .. in Lagna .. a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance."

" There will not be bodily health...

  • if Lagna, or Chandra be drishtied by, or yuti with a malefic, being devoid of a benefic's Drishti."

~~ BPHS Chapter 12, Shloka-3-4

Shani in Svamsha

Drishti from bhava-1

Shani casts graha drishti upon 3rd, 7th, and 10th from the bhava which He occupies

Drishti upon bhava-3 gives a taciturn and pessimistic communication style, rather minimalist in content, favoring direct instructions (3) and no more. Mentally, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 expects a regular routine and in leadership roles in commerce (3) the native will impose tight routines and budgets upon the work team.

  • Nearly everything handwritten by Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi wrote, even on scraps of paper and the backs of envelopes, has been preserved.

Drishti upon bhava-7 = marriage is loyal and lawful if not much"fun" unless there is some compensating influence of Shukra (pleasure) or Surya (charm). Shani in 7 can make marriage intolerably austere, but Shani drishti to 7 is normally favorable for loyalty and longevity of the union.

Drishti upon 10 = somewhat taciturn in professional life (and life in general!) one accomplishes materially via diligent persistence. However, the Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 leader may be disliked or feared rather than admired (admiration = Surya) because one demands so much of citizens and workers lower in the hierarchy.


Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 typically produces an anxious , overly mature, overly responsible, excessively orderly, adult-oriented child who seeks approval from parents and teachers.

This child is generally not comfortable with their messy, irresponsible same-age peers. Parental encouragement to"go play" never produces much action since Shani does not want to"play" but rather He wants to work, to be lawful, and to carry significant responsibility for the regularity of the social order.

This child is dependent upon the larger social order for its identity and not upon the immediate family or siblings. Naturally if there are more graha in the lagna along with Professor Shani , the prognosis can change. However, in general such a child will be unduly lawful to the point of boring . Displays of piety intended to extract praise from parents and teachers also accompany the early development.

Unfortunately such a child may be perceived by peers to be a"suck up" or a"snitch" who"ruins all the fun" . This child has an advanced understanding of the interlocked systems which give security and structure to social organizations; and their identity (1) is based on learning and following rules. They do not value"fun"and are generally ostracized by other kids from games and entertainments.

Furthermore, Shani perceives Mangala as an enemy therefore action for the pleasure of action - the natural joy of movement in children - may be absent from this child. They abhor violence and except for responsible forms of touching such as childcare, do not want much physical contact.

Here is the typical"latch-key kid" with working parents who carries their own bhava-keys, takes accurate telephone messages, and supervises younger children with adult levels of judgment. They are safety-oriented and very capable, but emotionally live in a state of constant worry [Shani] and require steady praising approval from parents and teachers. Criticism even minor will devastate these fragile beings.

Essentially an adult in a child's body, they thrive on opportunities to work and earn praise for accomplishments of all kinds. Typically, the straight-A student, the child who begins paid work at age 10 or 12 (and works until the day of death), and a bad mixer rather .

Even if other factors in the nativity produce creative energy, overall the childhood of the Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 native will be distinctively disciplined from inside and out. If creativity does emerge, it will only be possible during a mahadasha of Chandra, Surya or Shukra, and not under the intensely conventional pressures of Regulator Shanir.


Although childhood is difficult because it feels so unnatural, the authority-pleasing behaviors can support a successful professional career later in life.

The native will find a way to professionally affiliate with some systems of rules, especially those systems that involve crime and punishment . Attorney, law-court judge, military officer, government bureaucrat, police officer, religious hierophant, insurance adjuster -- any agent with authority to dictate practice and punish aberrations from the standard.

Favorable for those who observe large rule systems and warn of dire consequences:

systems scientists -- especially those who warn of worrisome, dire consequences

  • eschatological economist Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx elegantly predicted imminent collapse of property-ownership systems

  • cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead

  • ecologist scientist author "Silent Spring" Rachel Carson , predicted the imminent death of global biological systems;

hierophants in religious hierarchies

  • Paul Tillich -"systematic theology"

bureaucrats, conservative politicians who maintain the social-economic status quo

military and police officers of moderate to high rank

Identity Anxiety. Fear and worry regarding the physical appearance and social identity.

Long endurance is required to obtain proper social rank and recognition . Long and diligent work is required, steadiness of purpose, and loyalty to an organization or a goal.

One may begin the journey toward recognition in a state of deficiency, humility, and social failure.

  • UK-Queen 1947- Camilla Rosemary Shand social obloquy as the Other Woman was followed by dignity of royal marriage and charitable works

Must work to earn validation of the flesh-based social identity. Works to be fully approved, in compliance, and judged perfect under the rule of statutory law . Yet survival fears based in [akashic memory] enforce the mandate to perform this work over and over again, until the ignorance is transformed into wisdom."Not good enough" syndrome.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 hardworking and sober personality fits well into step-ranked organizations, such as government institutions and very large quasi-government corporations.

  • POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush

  • USA Sen-AZ, 2008 Pres Candidate John McCain

  • India-PM partner Sonia Gandhi

A profoundly lawful personality who pays focused attention to matters of social rank and hierarchical position.

Mistakes tend to be made repeatedly

A long-term burden of grief is carried.

Must exert more than normal effort in order to attain normal status, in matters physical body appearance, social identity attributes, athletic and commercial competition.

Slow-slow-slow but steady development of the individualized personality as distinct from the social-rules-and-roles definitions.

  • Shani in kendra has a high rate of long-term success in the task of learning from one's mistakes.

After the early mistakes are corrected, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 institutes a new behavioral routine, and surprising social success begins to attend the one who seemed earlier to be unable to find one's place.

Publicity and Publications

Shani's cautious drishti upon bhava-3 makes the native somewhat leery of making announcements.

  • One does not wish the press to endanger one's reputation; thus one avoids becoming newsworthy. Those announcements which

  • Should Shani occupy the lagna while He both owns and aspects bhava-3 (Vṛścika indriya-lagna , Dhanus indriya-lagna ) one may experience a deep resistance to making announcements or reports of any kind, including even the conventional holiday greetings messages.

  • Personal communications such as handwritten messages may have a cramped or stunted appearance. (Similar to effect of Shani drishti upon Budha-Makara or Budha-Kumbha.)

Physically and Socially Awkward in Youth.

  • After the age of 31 (past the first Saturn Return) the native will see comfortable and pleasing results from matters of the houses ruled by Shani.

Brihat Jataka "... if Saturn occupies the Ascendant at a person's birth, he will be poor, sickly, love stricken, very unclean, suffering from diseases during his childhood and indistinct in his speech.

However, if any of the signs -- Sagittarius, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Libra be the Ascendant and Saturn should occupy it at birth -- the person concerned

  • will be equal to a king,
  • the headman of a village or the mayor of the city,
  • a great scholar
  • and will be handsome."

Shani in bhava-1 = deficiency of identity

core areas of initial lack of understanding + required repetition =

  • 1 = flesh body
  • 3 = mentality
  • 7 = terms of partnership
  • 10 = public reputation, respect

A regulator of systems of social identification.

Preincarnationally planned pressure

One is judged according to one's physical appearance and social-material attributes . Although the native chronically over-identifies with social-material systems, the individual attribute-package is never quite fully approved by the corporate body.

May be rejected by oneself; self-contempt.

Due to adversarial relationship between Mangala lord of 1 and Shani, one may be forever unsatisfied with one's social station and level of social recognition.

Akashic memory patterning of dealing with people who demand loyalty to the corporation, institution, or system . Also Akashic memory patterning of dealing with people who are stuck in negative, repetitive patterns, who cannot advance, cannot move .

Always short of personal vitality (because so much of the life force goes into corporate work). Work-duties regulate the mentality, the marriage, and the career.

(If complication of Mangala = a frantic pace, impatient, frustrated, in a hurry)

Fear of individual identity.

Shani enemy of Mangala = in 1 = good for physical discipline because Shani resists wasted energy.

Learning Curve

the native is challenged to repeat many" practice" iterations while learning the art of accumulating a treasury of values .

The lifetime is devoted to the slow and patient correction of the at-birth deficiency regarding collection, retention, storage, hoarding, acquisition, and how to apply values to food, money, and knowledger.

Default condition: work places heavy demands upon The earthen body ; the person becomes more identified with the 'corporation' and less with the individual 'corpus' . Develops a heavy, haggard 'corpselike' appearance if not corrected (body = beast of burden).

Lesson: care for The earthen body , learn not to work past its natural limits, not to

Four areas of special difficulty caused by pre-incarnationally planned necessity to correct a deficiency of identity.

Core Practice Environments which require repetitive drill and careful study :

  • flesh body, musculature, social attributes of the physical appearance

  • the commercial business team + those who make announcements and reports (3)

  • the spouse + those who make contractual agreements (7)

  • the boss + those who determine one's hierarchical rank (10)


Fear of appearing inappropriate or low ranked. Subconscious fear of inability to survive. A difficult childbirth for the infant native, often deeply suppressed in memory. The mother may have been unwillingly to give birth, or resistant to having another child. Lifelong feelings of scarcity and a need to work hard to gain acceptancer.

Classical authorities often claim that Shani in lagna creates an impoverished, bony or emaciated appearance. In fact, I often see large-sized, even overweight person with Shani in lagna. Also there are plenty of financial wealth y professional people who have Jyotisha Shani in kundali indriya-lagna . Wealth comes even when Shani is also rising in navamsha!

Shani in lagnadoes not per se give a thin body, poverty, or ill-health. At least in the modern West, the emaciation may easily be emotional or spiritual rather than physical in appearance.

the native is always feeling blocked, deprived , and hungry for validation. However , in the West at least, one may eat as much supposedly nourishing food as one might want. Of course, this food is often tainted, and in the case of Shani in lagna the native simply never feels satisfied with food (or their relationships, or their social standing, or anything else!

Really, bhava-2 rules the mouth and access to food, so Shani in lagna does not limit food or money.Shani in lagna does limit one's access to self-satisfaction and material happiness.


the native is not self-validating and thus One must work hard and consistently to guarantee the flow of essential social validation.

The general public has more power over one's self-image than over one who does not have Shani in kundali indriya-lagna , or with Chandra.

Thus despite Shani's reputation for making a dark, enslaved-to-survival laborer, the nativities above which represent those holding very high political office, will be seen best as "enslaved" to public opinion, and very much needing validation from Shani things such as hard work, large organization, rule of large, and hierarchical organizations.

Appearance he Shani-rising native will always be a hard worker and face obstacles in life, but the physical appearance is not typically thin, dark, or bony in appearance as the classics often suggest. The classic Jyotisha commentaries are by and large situated in ancient or medieval culture. 'Work' in those days was almost always manual work which had the effects of thin, dark, bony, tired etc.

However 'work' these days is often mental work. Yes it is exhausting, but heavy repetitive indoor work tends toward a pasty complexion, sedentary plumpness and can also build great wealth! The central effect of Shani in lagna is the * Survival fear* which drives the work, not the type of work itselfr.

What I do see much more often in my Western clientele (which includes numerous immigrant Easterners now settled in USA) is a tendency toward destructive levels of judgmental conformism and perfectionism . The native seems to be constantly proving and re-proving his legitimacy and worth. Mandatory perfection comes with a deep-seated self-protection, itself a response to The Shani threat of being isolated, ostracized or abandoned.

This pattern of working unusually hard to earn one's place in the family, business, and society can be seen in all Shani-rising nativities at all stations in life. Perhaps the native is driven to excel in a particular area of knowledge, a particular set of commercial skills, or a particular moral behavior.

Any type of work will be done well by oneself.

However, the ir sorrow is that they will never be good enough. Their underlying fear prevents them ever being fully satisfied, or fully grateful, toward any material accomplishment. Their work is never doner.

Socially identified with matters such as calendaring and scheduling; the timing of events; and managing matters of age. Has senior status or expertise due to life experience. Casting His harshest 3rd and 10th aspects upon administration (3) and career (10) with 75% impact upon marriage/agreements (7) Shani restricts and delays the attainment of self-made financial wealth , administrative projects, and leadership prestige.

It's important to appreciate that if supporting graha are strong one may manifest considerable material success and achieve high position. But one will never be satisfied with these achievements, due to the underlying threat of scarcity, the fear that whatever they have achieved in somehow not enough. They need more praise, more laurels, more assignments, more tasks... even if their existing achievement are formidable, one must continue to earn further distinction.

No help from the marriage partner. Siblings are a burden in youth, not an asset. A positive 3rd-house would show healthy competition with siblings/cousins which builds communication skills and confidence to take risks later in life (courage). Malefic Shani aspect to 3 shows native is risk-averse, has negative expectation of successful competition. Also negative expectation of love in marriage, and negative expectation of dignity in career.

Person pulls resources into one'sself; lacks initiative for business. Self-reliant, independent, and lonely.

Shani = enemy of Surya = recognition.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 gives a tendency toward grudging recognition of the significance others' work; due mainly to the native 's characteristic over-awareness of human insufficiency to great tasks.

The Shani voice warns the native that unless everyone is producing full lawful effort at all times, the ship of state could sink!

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 has an underlying sense of"barely holding on" to material survival due not to lack of skill but to their hyper-awareness of just how weak and puny human beings really are.

because they fail to detect the imminent crisis which Shani is always expecting, those lacking the embedded survival instincts of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 may chafe under the leadership of such a stern, non-empathetic (Shani also enemy of Chandra) and uncompromising boss .

The good news is that Shani-rising folk often mellow in middle and late middle age. Actually, Shani folk stay the same. It is the non-Shani people around them who are getting older and more fearful through the effects of age. Older people naturally appreciate Shani's work ethic, capacity for austerity, worst-case-scenario planning, and concern for personal and social security.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 nativities are not much fun to be around in the younger years, due to their workhorse personality and fear-based worldview . However, in later years Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 folk are easier to understand. Sober and lawful citizens, they enjoy the respect of their communities and the State.

The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace: The Essential Life and Teachings

p. 341

" Form is emptiness, emptiness is form."

We are empty, or rather the matter of which we are composed is empty. But I must emphasize that emptiness does not mean nothingness. Some commentators have been mistaken when they have accused Buddhism of being nihilistic. We believe that the world in which we live is part of a flux, a stream of events. This does not mean it is nothing. Everything depends on everything else.

Nothing exists on its own.

On account of all the influences that come to bear upon them, things appear, exist, and disappear, and then reappear again. But they never exist independently. Form is therefore empty, by which we mean it is not separate and independent. Form depends on a multitude of different factors. And emptiness is form because all forms emerge from emptiness, from this absence of independent existence.

Emptiness exists only to give rise to form."


Blocks Awareness of How One Affects Others in Groups, in Marriage, and in Leadership

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 casts drishti upon teamwork bhava-3, and thus negatively affects small-group awareness, kinship relationships and collaborations.

Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 who are born into highly individualistic, market-driven (primarily Western) cultures will experience dramatically reduced communications within kinship networks. Even persons born into traditional clan societies with strong kinship ties and a good upbringing in kinship reciprocity will nevertheless lack a sense of natural belonging. This loneliness is the impact of Shani on bhava-3 of small groups.

If no benefic graha intervenes, Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1 may lack kin relationships entirely, or they may experience whatever sibling network they do have as a responsibility which creates much more burden than benefit. In clan societies where self-definition relies on kinship ties (most traditional peoples) the native can suffer a profound lack of identity.

Saturn's aspect to 12th-from-4-education often means the isolation of boarding school, or a family ethic of individual achievement that denies the value of collaboration with others. Every man for himself becomes the rule.

A psychological keynote: Shani-rising provides a powerful survival instinct which impacts houses 3, 7, and 10. These natives suffer blunted awareness of how they affect:

  • others in their group (3)

  • the marriage partner (7)

  • authorities (10)

Exceptionally independent and often isolated people, although frequently successful materially due to their fear of poverty and failure.

Unless the Moon is healthy, Shani in lagna tends toward emotional illnesses of isolation and limited ability to recognize, interpret, or evaluate the feelings of others. Clearly this situation has negative implications for marriage.

Seva of Professor Shani teaching in classroom-1

The Shani-rising nativity may be uncomfortable with the very basic experience of inhabiting a physical body in a social group. At some time in their ancient parallel lives one robbed another of their social identity or caused another to be ostracized.

In parallel lives the native caused another to bear painful social stigma, or otherwise cause that victim to have the experience of hating their body, of dreading social rejection, dis-grace , of feeling ugly or unwanted in society. Or perhaps the native was a spiritual authority who taught that material senses are evil, so that his students feared and loathed their fleshly bodies.

his native may liberate him/herself from the present-life fear of being trapped in a negative body experience, by accepting pre-incarnationally planned responsibility for healing others less fortunate to live confidently in their own bodies. [Con=with; fide=faith. Confidence = living with faith.]

For example, such a native might choose to serve as a hatha-yoga instructor, director of an education program that helps remove social stigma, a cosmetic surgeon who beautifies bodies, or a spiritual teacher who consciously promotes gratitude for physical bodies.

Shani rising has a natural inclination toward accepting responsibility for the welfare of others. These natives have chosen to be born when Saturn rises on the earth's eastern horizon. This choice indicates their intention to pay off substantial akashic-memory debt in the current lifetime.

If oneone achieves consciousness of the particular form of service that is most efficacious - that is, for the lagna position, service directed toward de-stigmatizing or making The fleshly body itself Asource of positive spiritual identity - s/he can use the talents provided by their other planets to create a service role that spreads their own humble knowledge downstream, to those hungry-for-positive-body-experience souls who are just now awakening.

For the Conscious Shani-rising native, intentionally unifying the spirit with The earthen body through grace of appearance and movement, will create the most profound inner peace.

Managing negative thought projections - a growth-challenge created by Shani in lagna.

When Shani occupies bhava-1, Shani casts drishti upon domains 3, 7, and 10.

Therefore, Shani's negative, pessimistic, conformist, fearful, scarcity-oriented, survival-driven, and faith-lacking energies assault the perception of

  • self and individual social identity (1)

  • work-group communications (3)

  • spousal character (7)

  • career and professional achievement (10).

To increase the chances of happiness in this life, one born with Shani in lagna must remain particularly *vigilant* against the onslaught of Shani's legacy of negative expectations upon these realms of perception.

(The above situation can be alleviated somewhat for lagnas friendly to Shani, such as Tula indriya-lagna and Urisha indriya-lagna, Kanya indriya-lagna and possibly Mithuna lagna too.)

Pressure to conform to social standards of hierarchy and ranking is a hallmark of Shani in bhava-1, even in a favorable rashi. The native is identified with the "law of the jungle"as well as the rule of national law. Public rank And respectability, law and order, status acquisition and social approval, are the hallmarks of individuality when Shani occupies bhava-1.

One possesses instinctive knowledge of the steps in the hierarchy, and seeks the safest level according to the empowerments of the other Graha in the nativity.

One is a centrist in all matters, shrewdly choosing the mainstream path, considers oneself wise and pragmatic, wears the status-marker uniform of one's caste, and is anxious to receive the respect Accorded to one's ranking.

Shani in lagna benefits attorneys, middle managers, members of large organizational hierarchies, and judges in the law courts. The native 's work ethic is pronounced and his goal is to achieve a socially validated level of privilege and prestige, through material acquisition . Money and power rule the world; of this one is convinced at birth!

However, the native is much constrained by one's need to conform to conventional social standards; is in general self-protective and risk-averse As they climb up the hierarchy building a strong base of like-minded hierarchists as they proceed. Distinctively cautious in the process of diligently acquiring status markers. No flashy overnight success here. This native is slow, diligent, determined, shrewd. Closely identified with generally appreciated by The common working people.

However, generally, the deeper identity is linked to one' social role as a preventer of Change and a maintainer of the status-quo.

The four life experiences which are likely to trigger the negative mental effects of Shani = the four domains which create the"fruits " of domains 1, 3, 7, and 10.

  • bhava-3 which produces the daily mental patterns and verbal-physical interactions with the sibling-team-workgroup

  • bhava-5 which produces the fruits of compulsive negative daily thought patterns (leading to depression);

  • bhava-9 which produces the fruits of marriage partnership and contractual agreements;

  • bhava-12 which produces the fruits of social leadership and public responsibilities.

When Shani occupies lagna Therefore, the native must be alert to the dangers of

  • eam communications (3), which stimulates negative projected wishes (11th-from) upon the individuality (1)

  • romantic love (5), which stimulates negative projected wishes (11th-from) upon the daily thoughts (3);

  • consecrated vows (9), which stimulate negative projected wishes (11th-from) upon the spouse's commitment to the marriage contract (7)

  • private imagination (12) which stimulates negative projected wishes (11th-from) upon the professional dignity (10)

bhava-3 is an upachaya dusthamsha. Matters of bhava-3 improve with maturity and self-knowledge.
