Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Svati - Arcturus

Chotthi - Vayu - Nishtya


For Svatika births of a masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .

For those born into the paradigm of Nishthya, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus. Their purpose is to broker trade agreements and balance the interests of multiple ambitious stakeholders.

Social justice, personal power

[Risk-taking Rahu] -ruled Svatika gentlemen are Mix-Master Middlemen. They tend to be fascinating figures. By skillfully mixing and trading with different folks, Svatika chaps build exotic new exchange relationships.

They are often found in policy organizations and government agencies, where their social equity work is distinctively multi-cultural. Roles include trader, exchanger, bridge-builder, diplomat, negotiator, deal-maker, bargainer, marriage-matcher, alliance-designer, and other balancing activities that engage two mismatched sides within one functional agreement.

Svatika represents Rahu's desire to amplify Shukra's quest for harmonious agreements. Rahu challenges cultural boundaries. The mix-master may skillfully combine unusual agents and mismatched agendas in order to obtain a rebalanced status. Similar to Sadachbia, the Svatika-born are mixed-system orchestrators who may take direction from Otherworldly sources. The character of Rahu is determinative.

Due to their Rahu-gifted ability to think outside the box, Svatika-born may realize previously unthinkable opportunities for diplomacy and fair exchange. Their success is noted in negotiation, trade-deals, and bargaining in commodities, ideas, or services.

In politics, Nishthya fellows may be associated with social, economic, or political integration of previously hostile or excluded participants. Their special talent is dealing with those who may be rogues, outsiders, stigmatized, or posturing frauds . Vayu-born graciously mix people and environments that were once segregated, by making successful pairings between ethnicities, religions, nations, or individuals of differing practice.

Their pursuit of a social justice agenda is not entirely idealistic. It is ultimately motivated by their desire to obtain privilege by facilitating partnership geared to increased barter, brokerage, and exchange.

Themes of opportunity, fascination with appearances, and acquisition of privilege may contextualize Svatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Svati

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84r.

" ... a slow and deliberative character,

  • almost ponderous in thought and action

  • Yet, intelligent and logical

While he may be slower at arriving at conclusions than most people,

  • on final analysis his reasoning is sound

  • and his conclusion more accurate than others who may be more brilliant.

He is very religious, somewhat orthodox,

  • and his environment permitting will attend church regularly

  • or at any rate participate in some religious activity.

Many priests or ministers are found to have Swati on the Rising Point."

The son of an important royal adviser, NM was raised with respect from others.

Despite exceptionally difficult conditions of a life-sentence in a notorious prison, NM was able to maintain a modicum of self-respect and secure an enduring political leadership role, even within the trap Surya in bhava-10

Within the miserable mistreatment and contentiously unfair culture of prison enclosure, NM slowly [Shani] negotiated a series of agreements with stakeholders from a variety of constituencies who would eventually, under his leadership, do the amazing and unthinkable: end the regime of apartheid, and allow black leadership in South Africa.


Dad = Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa Mandela [1880–1928] .

  • NM's family claimed royal lineage
  • although his father's position fluctuated [Rahu drishti to Surya-10] dad served often as an inner-court counselor to the king.

Rahu's ruler Mangala in bhava-12 tends to drain the public influence of the lineage causing a focus of values-and-knowledge into the realm of distant lands, imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interior guidance, hallucination, and private rooms.

Rahu in bhava-2 Unusual voice 2
