Masculine Public-Figure Examples
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
[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,
While he may be slower at arriving at conclusions than most people,
He is very religious, somewhat orthodox ,
Many priests or ministers are found to have Swati on the Rising Point."

CAREER - 10th-from-Chandra
Goethe was not only a scientist [Kumbha] and philosopher Chandra in Purvabhadra.
JWG was also the songwriter of numerous bawdy German folk melodramas that were wildly popular and performed in village taverns.
Many of his dramatic works are written for an earthy, non-literate audience due to Chandra's ruler, Shani-Tula [uchcha] in bhava-3 writing. These comic-tragic tales of village life provided an outlet for his imagination [Chandra activates 12] and established him as a familiar German cultural icon.[Chandra]
Chandra = folkways. Goethe wrote countless bawdy tavern songs, and more formal lyrical poems too. Goethe was a serious scholar in many fields and he had the discipline Shani-Tula to produce voluminous documentation. In addition he was said to be a chatterbox Budha in bhava-1 [dikbala] showing delight in spoken language, dialect pronunciations, and local twang.
During the intervening two centuries, science has advanced while basic human consciousness has not. Over time, Goethe's drama and poetry have outperformed his abundant scientific works Chandra in Shata-taraka. Yet even the older scientific drawings are still admired for their detailed accuracy and stylistic beautyr.

Goethe's brotherly [Kuja] friendship with Karl August, Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenac provided most of his income  and prestige opportunities [Rahu] via politicized administrative and managerial appointments to various government projects [3rd-from-3rd).
It was the royal  Karl August's belief [Dhanus] in Goethe's wide-ranging talents that allowed Goethe to rise both socially and financially.

Randhresha Guru-5 is stressful for children. Goethe had five children with Christiane Vulpius, but only their eldest son survived to adulthood.
Goethe's surviving son Julius August Walther von Goethe was born in 1789 [Goethe's age 40). Goethe's marriage to his son's mother Christiane Vulpius occurred in 1806 [Goethe's age 57). His son was obliged to live with the bourgeois stigma of illegitimacy for seventeen years. Julius August Walther von Goethe, the only surviving son predeceased his father.
Yet Guru-Meena-8 is financially well-placed in 2nd-from-Chandra, and the senior Goethe arranged favorable positions for the junior Goethe.
Goethe was a recognized polymath who displayed a stunning variety of artistic, literary, scientific, and legal talents.. While Goethe's secrets were many, his public side was dramatic and inspiring Mangala-yuti-Rahu-Dhanus . His works were celebrated as peak examples of German wisdom, philosophy, teaching, and numerous diverse expressions of understanding. Goethe demonstrated his genius via an astounding variety of connected fields of study.

[Shukra-Kanya] [nīcha] occupies the secretive the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's romantic adventures and misadventures were also celebrated, as he seemed to eschew conventional relationship conduct while becoming a Weimar favorite ladies' man.
Shukra is also responsible for the orderly aspect of JWG's governance career.
[Shukra-Kanya] suggests that Goethe's wife needed to be a service-class woman not a fragile woman like Lili with whom he dissolved engagement in Shani-Ketu bhukti. Finally married Christiane the house-servant and artists model, 31 years later in 1806 and they produced five children.
Goethe's amorous lifestyle was accepted by his peers. Shukra-Kanya suggests marriage with a servant-figure or one committed to a ministry of service. His wife Christiane Vulpius was a strong and capable housekeeper. She boasted neither social nor intellectual pretensions.
Despite Christiane hailing from a much lower [considered vulgar] social register, after 19 years of being unlicensed lovers, Goethe married her at his age 57.
An earthy woman who was a house-servant and artist's nude model, Christiane was apparently very strong. Goethe boasted to everyone that Christiane had counter-attacked marauding soldiers who threatened their home and their children.
Shukra in the secretive, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's socially conscious mother [Chandra-7] was horrified at his marriage, and died soon after their wedding. They remained married until Christiane's own death ten years later.

His amorous affairs and in particular his marriage to a servant woman Shukra-Kanya caused consternation among his bourgeois peerage.

Enduring Literary Legacy
Most of Goethe's literary oeuvre is still in print, 250 years after he produced it. His poetic writings continue to influence the minds of each new generation of dedicated readers. Goethe - especially Faust - is read by university students and by intellectuals who specialize in the study of European culture. It is common to hear non-German intellectuals declare that they undertook the study of the German language solely for the purpose of reading Goethe!
However, not everyone is equally enamored of Goethe's style.
Goethe was a dignified agent of the social order, and his governance duties in the Weimar Republic were a source of public recognition and respect. Shani occupies 10th-navamsha
Shani activates Kumbha-7 scientific exchange
Goethe was proudest of his scientific writings and his laborious, detailed scientific schematics Shani in Bhava-3 diagrams . However, these writings and drawings were contextualized by the limited [Shani] knowledge of his era and most have fallen into disuse. However, they are valued as fascinating evidence of the unfolding history of 18th century scientific thoughtr.

These dynamic [Kuja] opportunities [Rahu] connected Goethe to a network of ambitious, philosophical young men.
Thus, his ability to realize his diverse ambitions extended far beyond what would normally be allowed for a young middle-class attorney from a non-aristocratic family
