Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Sadachbia - Varuna

Shatavisaka - Shata-takara - Tabernacles


For Shata-taraka 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 Rahu-ruled paradigm of Sadabija, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur , charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sadachbia* Tabernacles. Their purpose is mixing of systems.

Mixed-Order Systems

[Rahu-ruled] fellows who are born into Sata are often found in fascinating roles that boost mass consciousness. Sata births are somewhat rare. Sadachbia work with large regulated systems such as mathematics, scientific theories, and sacred cosmology ++ with formalized psychic sciences such as hypnosis.

Sadabija gentlemen may display principled methods of inquiry, and they may hold dignified social positions, but their personal lifestyles are often unorthodox. Their work often overturns an outdated social paradigm of scientific theory or religious belief.

Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

Themes of over-reaching, charlatanry, entrancement, expedient linkage, hypnotic appearance, and connections between contradictory systems may contextualize Sata's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 88r.

" A quiet and unassuming person,

thoughtful and meditative

  • yet given to sudden outbursts of temper.

Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.

Prefers solitude to the company of others.

  • Does not care for small talk

  • and finds social contact rather tiresome.

Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."

A light eater and moderate in most things."


neurologist Sigmund Freud, M.D., in midlife

Over-reaching pretense in Aśvini = medicine.

rulers of 4 + 7 + 12 amplified by ambitious-writer [Rahu in bhava-3]

  • SSF proposed to deliver [3] medical treatments [Aśvini] for psychological injuries.

Champion of women's sexual health = a previously taboo area

  • SSF was a champion explorer of new medical territory
  • the injuries in which he specialized were sustained mainly by women [Rahu-yuti-Shukra] and mainy via sexual conduct [7] of their husbands or their incestuous fathers [Rahu-yuti-Surya]

Dr. Freud researched [12] and documented [3] what he asserted were clinically tested remedies for psychological disorders related to culturally forbidden [Rahu] sexual behaviors.

  • All appeared on the surface [Rahu appearances] to be rigorously following the scientific method [SSF Sadachbia lagna, identified as a scientist]

SSF and his students in the new discipline of psycho-analysis believed themselves to be true scientists.

Yet, decades after SSF's death in 1939, at the peak of his professional recognition, classical Freudian psychoanalysis was already seen to be scientifically untenable due to lack of actual confirming evidence.

  • It is now suspected that Freud fabricated the case studies described in his medical notebooks. [over-reaching Rahu-3 Aśvini medicine.]
  • specifically, the manufactured data consisted of reported conversations between himself the therapist and his clients [Rahu in bhava-3]

Ketu occupies 10th navamsha = evaporating social authority

There was never any third-party verification of the proceedings within SSF's private therapy sessions. Several of his patients claimed that SSF was fabricating their supposed conversations behind-closed-doors . After many decades of failed attempts to replicate of Freud's claimed cures, his medical notebooks documenting the enclosed sessions are now believed to be a work of SSF's imagination.

Although SSF's theories are now mainly discredited, the impact of his ideas on western intellectual history remains undeniably important.
