15. Swati Nakshatra

“The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”  — Confucius 

“A man is born gentle and weak; at his death he is hard and stiff. All things, including the grass and trees, are soft and pliable in life; dry and brittle in death. Stiffness is thus a companion of death; flexibility a companion of life. An army that cannot yield will be defeated. A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind. The hard and stiff will be broken; the soft and supple will prevail.”  —Lau Tzu (birth date unknown)

Qualities of Swati

Trimurti: Shiva/Dissolution

Gotra/Clan: Sage Marichi

Gana/Tribe: Deva

Varna/Caste: Butcher

Motivation/Goal: Artha

Nature: Moveable/Changeable

Activity: Passive

Place: Field

Guna: Tamasic

Element: Fire

Dosha: Kapha

Sex/Gender: Female

Facing Forward/Level

Direction: North

Colour: Black

Animal: Male Buffalo

Destruction: brings things to an end, closes chapters, clears away the old so the new may thrive. Swati nakshatra tends towards destruction.

Sage Mirichi: “Ray of Light” Instructs his students on dharma, especially the laws of the Brahmin caste: ceremony around food, cooking, eating, etiquette, marriage ritual, offering of the the bride, offering water to the ancestral lineage, rules of cleanliness and purity, casual acts of piety, pujas for the gods, rules for homa, and fire ritual. He denounced renunciation in favour of completing worldly duties and he dealt out very harsh punishments for not following the proper rules of caste.

Deva: The planets relating with the Devas will promote more refined and righteous behaviour; but may struggle with pride and entitlement. They are more capable of understanding the subtitles of life. This is also used in chart matching. They say it’s best if both parties belong to the same tribe (8 points). However, they say that a deva and a rakshasa will get one point for the attraction of opposites). This is a very important classification suggesting that the way these three tribes (devas, humans & rakshasa) live is so different as to have a major effect on marriage compatibility and living together.

Passive: Planets here will be more passive about achieving their goals: allowing things to happen rather than “forcing” things. The moon is said to persuade through temptation so she does well here. Venus draws us in by her promises of beauty so she also does well. Saturn is the master of patience so he also does well. The active planets can cause a bit of trouble in trying to force things that we should just allow to happen naturally.

Butcher: Harsh activities like, killing, cutting, working with flesh and blood, or with taboo functions of the human body. The butchers are outcastes doing the most outcaste job. It’s said that even a Brahmin who becomes a surgeon is considered outcaste, a butcher, impure to orthodox Hinduism. I take this category to include all the worst kinds of work that can pollute the body of mind like working in sewers, all these metaphorical cutting and slashing of bottom lines, and those who ignore the very human consequences to their activities in life. 

Artha: The are motivated by making money and achieving safety and security through material abundance while building things that will last, grow and gain in value. They are typically grounded in long term projects. They seek to restore value where it has been lost.

Chara – Movable: Swati natives need movement, they are very adaptable, changeable. They like open space since it gives them room to move. They like to accommodate others, but they like their independence as well. When the Moon transits Swati it’s a good time to move, to make changes to home & garden, career, relationship. Good for exercise, travel, vehicles or anything with moving parts. Many of the same kinds of activities as you’ll find in quick-light nakshatras may be performed here..  Punarvasu, Swati, Shravana, Dhanishta and Shatabhisha are all movable. Mondays have this kind of energy as we get moving again after the weekend.

Triyanga Mukha – Facing Straight Ahead (Level): This is a level-headed and forward looking position. It’s good for mundane, everyday tasks that allows us to prepare for the future. This nakshatra promotes an honest, realistic assessment. It marks a good time to level with others or yourself, to ensure that the playfield and the ground are all level. It can be a good time to start surveying, building, laying pipe, or sticking a level on anything. Mercury and Venus share this perspective. Ashwini, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Anuradha, Jyeshta and Revati are all forward looking.

Kapha: Water + Earth = Cool, oily, heavy, stable, slow, soft, gross, sticky/cloudy, smooth

  • Stable, slow, methodical, greedy
  • Disturbed by sweet (Jupiter), salty (Moon), sour (Venus). 
  • Pacified by pungent (Sun) and astringent (Saturn)

Fire element:

Tamasic: Activities take part on the gross physical plane: dark, depressed, dull, inert activities that obscure reality and keep us in the dark. Some kind of gross suffering is usually felt here and there’s a lazy sort of laissez-faire sort of laziness of lethargy. The energy here typically pulls a person down as it represents neither change or purity. There is typically some suffering and darkness of mind experienced here. Tamasic has no nutrients and the prana is not moving; it’s stale or dead.

North: Auspicious direction during periods of planets placed here. 

Female: Causes some feminisation of the people represented by karakas that are placed here. 5th lord can be female children, 7th lord female counsellors, 9th lord female guru, etc.

Special Considerations

  • Sun debilitated at 10º Libra.
  • Saturn exalted at 20º Libra.
  • Pushkara Navamsha: 16º 40′ to 20º Libra (Pisces Navamsha) 

Health: Intestines & Chest

  • Lungs, breathing, heart, blood circulation 
  • Allergies, Asthma
  • Wernicke’s area is mainly involved in the understanding and processing of speech and written language. It’s located in the temporal lobe, just behind your ears. The temporal lobe is also the region where sound is processed.
  • Ayurveda: Lungs are the site of Avalambaka Kapha. The fluid lining the lungs that allows O2 to be absorbed and CO2 to be released. When this mucus becomes dry the lungs lose function. This can be too much Kapha producing a sticky earthy mucus that doesn’t move. Too much heat or wind can also dry out the mucus of the lungs causing breathing problems. Vasant Lad, an Ayurvedic doctor, says “Avalambaka [Kapha in the lungs] creates confidence, courage, and the ability to face problems so that the chest is expanded. When the chest is contracted, the person is not able to cope with  challenges.” This is expressed thru and tall open posture, shoulders back, long slow expansive exhalations. Hunched shoulders and shallow breath suggests just the opposite: low self confidence and an inability to express oneself.

Gods & Symbols of Swati

ऐं महासरस्वत्यै नमः

om shree mahasaraswatyai namaha


Her name means: “the essence of swati;” or “she who has ponds, lakes, and pooling water”;  or “she who possesses speech.” Her colour is white, she has four arms and holds a book, a rosary, a water pot and a Veena. She sits on a swan or a peacock. She is the goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. Vasant Panchami Saraswati jayanti), the first day of spring; as well as the seventh day of Navratri are celebrations in her name. She is Brahma’s consort, representing the power of creation and creativity. Vach devi is one of her main forms. This is the goddess of the alphabet. She is said to live on the tip of the tongue. She is sattvic, the pure essence of the self, of knowledge, of thought of our experiences, of everything. She has special significance with the four part of the antara karana: the manas (mind, sense), the buddhi (intellect, reasoning), the citta (imagination, creativity), and the ahamkāra (self consciousness, ego).

The book she holds represents universal, divine, eternal, and true knowledge as well as all forms of learning. The mālā of crystals represents the power of meditation, inner reflection, and spirituality. The pot of water represents the purifying power. This may also be a pot of soma which is known to be the inspiration that brings knowledge. The veena represents all music, creative arts and sciences. As a musical instrument it’s a symbol of harmony, rhythm. The swan she rides on is known to be able to separate milk from water representing the ability to distinguish the essence of things regardless of disguise

The Saraswati river is the essence of rivers, the essence of mothers. A war between the Brahmins and the kshetriyas from which was born a vadavagni, an all-consuming fire, threatened to destroy everything. After getting permission from her husband Brahma Saraswati she goes to Shiva who suggests she manifest as a river flowing out of a sacred peepal tree.


Lord of the north-west. 49 maruts under pavana. The 11 Rudras. 

The Sword: 

Brahma is said to have created the sword to restore dharma. Khanda is a double edged sword that cuts through the veil of ignorance. It is said that Krittika is the nakshatra of the sword, Rohini is the grota, agni the deity, Rudra is the maharishi. It is the truly the upholder of dharma. It is the foremost in striking weapons.

Scattering to the four winds can suggest reaching out in all directions.

What is Prana-Vayu?

We should distinguish between “prana” and the “prana-vayus.” “Prana” is life force; the “prana-vayus” describes the way that prana moves in the body. Prana is life force or vital essence; the vayus are the winds. Yogi’s seek to draw panic life force into the body  and retain it; using it only for achieving the goal of union with god. The Ayurvedic perspectives seeks to keep the channels open and the energy moving. Of course there is a lot of overlap between these two projects; but the difference is notable. Prana is movement so Ayurveda considers the way things move. Most of our physical life force is maintained through intake of food, water, and air. In other ways we get power for praise or accomplishment, overcoming challenges, winning competitions, and sacrifice when properly carried out. We can gather a kind of false prana thru insincere praise, unearned advancement, pretentious sacrifice and any number of ways including using drugs or alcohol and other addictive and temporary “uppers.” These kinds of pranic increases are short and can be fatal in the end.

Prana represents the two elements space & air. It can be incredibly fickle. Yoga teachers talk about inhaling or increasing prana, but few warn about the dangers of unnecessarily leaking our prana out all over the place as we promote our “spiritual practice” and pretentiously signal our virtues. The Buddhist Diamond Sutra warns about seeking merit through mercurous deeds; merit or life force is only increased when the good deed in spontaneous. 

The prana vayus are said to move between the heavens and the earth. The vayus are the vehicle of lord Rudra and his Maruts. This is why we visualise the movement of breath from heart centre to the 12 finger space above the head. 

Ayurveda offers us five prana vayus which we can also use as visualisation tools for meditation. We can become very sensitive and aware of the body by practicing visualisation along with our pranayama.

5 Prana Vayus: 

1Prana: Represented by the Sun. Rules over respiration and sensory perception. It’s produced in the chest or heart. It typically moves inward and upward. Prana is emission, like when we exhale, our vital force goes out through our breath. When we use our senses energy is used to illuminate the world much like the Sun illuminates the world. If we look at a pretty girl we give energy to her and lose a bit of our own. If we listen to gossip we waste our energy. Whenever we project our thoughts or words or actions into the world we lose energy. When we turn all our awareness inward we illuminate the heavens and are gifted with true energy.

Pranayama is one of the best ways of building our life force. Pranayama can be understood in different ways. Some say that it’s prana + ayama and others say it’s prana + yama. On one hand pranayama brings life, power and vitality to the body and the senses; on the other hand, we can practice pranayama in order to still the senses and slow all the vital functions to preserve energy and ultimately ride the breath to heaven leaving the duality of earthly existence behind, (Incidentally, it seems there must also be some connection with pranayama and Bharani nakshatra since it is ruled by Yama.) Prana brings warmth and movement to whatever is inert, lifeless and dead. Yama drains the live force and makes things inert, motionless and dead. The senses do not reach out for satisfaction, they become motionless as we life without desire or attachment. We become dead as individuals or distinct beings, and we come alive to universal flow and consciousness.

When we exhale prana, that life force which was given to us by god, reaches out to the world through our senses to colour and flavour the objects with whatever flavour we might crave; whatever we have inside of ourselves at the moment reaches out to the world to create a counterpart. When we inhale and bring back all of that sensory material we generally forget that we have just created it, so we react. We forget that we always get back what we give. As long as we have forgotten this fundamental rule we will suffer from our karma; once we learn it, life becomes a spontaneous play whatever might be your circumstances.

“The vital breath is essentially a state of consciousness which manifests as the movement of two breaths; prana and apana (exhale and inhale).”

This is a major theme of Tantra: that one thing appears to be two separate things; or, as is the case in waking life, as a multiplicity of distinct objects. As we look at things more and more closely and understand them for their subtleties rather than accepting them at face value, they begin to merge together as though they were never separate. As it says in the Stanzas on Vibration:

“Whatever else may exist apart from you, if subjected to sound reflection, simply disappears like the fables palace of celestial musicians and you alone, changeless remain….” Stanza 10 goes on to say that , “then the soul realises that his true nature (dharma) is universal agency and perceiving subjectivity, and so he knows and does whatever he desires.”  ~Stanzas on Vibration~

In yoga we often talk about the body, mind and soul. We can think of this as three worlds or three layers of our being. The prana lives in the intermediate region of the mind, in our highest intelligence, but prana moves between heaven and earth; the soul and the body; the subject and the object. It’s through the prana vayus that we are connected with everything. Vayu is Air and Ether, which allows it to pervade and move between all 36 tattva. Tantra associates the prana vayu with the right pingala nadi.

The prana vayus are known as the vehicle of Rudra, an ancient name for lord Shiva that means “the Howler.” Rudra is known as the “Lord of Beasts.” He is often associated with the 11 Maruts which signifies his rulership of the mind and the 10 indriyas (5 sensory and 5 motor functions). Rudra and the Maruts are said to ride upon the vayu. 

Prana is the expression of our life force which penetrates the world and forever leaves our mark upon it (which will come back to us again through the 5 fold cycle of the vayus). Prana also represents what we give to the world. It’s said that people who belong to traditional cultures will begin a deep breath with an exhalation whereas modern people are much more likely to inhale straight away when told to take a deep breath. It’s the difference between giving to the world first before expecting rewards, and asking for the world to give to you before you’ll give anything to the world. The second modern perspective is, of course, an unhealthy aberration.

2. Apaana: Represented by the Moon. In Ayurveda it’s the downward movement that aids in urination and elimination. Tantra associates apaana with the left Ida nadi channel of the kundalini. 

3. Samaana: They call it the equinox; “the equalising breath.” Ayurveda describes the movements as spinning inward towards a centre point. This is the energy of digestion, assimilation and meditation. It purifies things to their essence. Most of this activity takes place in the navel region and it’s related to the element of fire. It’s said that in the waking and dream state, prana-apana is active, however in states of deep-sleep samaana balances the inhalation and exhalation. 

4. Udaana: The Ascending breath. This is the central channel; the sushumna. This is the upwards rising force. Most of its action takes place in the head (though others include all the extremities of the body. According to Ayurveda, it also moves outwards to produce speech and any kind of coordinated activity, including that of the five senses. 

5. Vyaana: Expands in all directions radiating outward from the navel Often considered the nadis energy system similar to the meridians of Chinese Medicine that provide nutrients and energy to the whole body. This is a windy airy quality to it and some say that it doesn’t live in any particular place in the body, but rather pervades every part. This is the most etheric of the Vayus. 

To this list should be mentioned the other five vayu’s for the sense of mystery evoked by them since they seemed to have been forgotten by history other than a few esoteric mentions. 1.Naga: releases energy that is stuck by causing us to burp, vomit, hiccup… 2. Kurma: related with winking and blinking. 3. Krikala: induces sneezing to clear the blockages in the respiratory system. 4. Devdatta: yawning. 5. Dhananjaya: regulates the opening and closing of the heart valves and controls the fragmentation of a body after death.

Prana Vayu: the most essential function

Once upon a time all of the organs and functions of the body got into a debate about who was most essential. Many were praising the the way the skeletal system gave shape and standing to the body, or how the blood carries nutrients to maintain the body, others marvelled the how the heart pumped blood and how the lung found it’s own way to pump air, then prana-vayu came along and everyone silent, for they knew that without the warmth of prana and the movement of the vayus that all life would stop. The hearth would not beat, the blood would pool and go stagnant, and the breath stops; the body becomes cold and inert.

Shiva: the most essential

Once upon a time, the Gods entered into a timeless argument over who was most powerful and essential for the functioning of life and this universe. Shiva happened to be moving about rather than sitting peacefully upon the peak of Mount Kailash. Something always seemed to be happening whenever Shiva was moving about. Then Shiva came across this childish argument and sought to quell it by simply pointing out that none were as powerful as him and they should all just go home and forget this pettiness. Of course some of the big gods who were standing around took offence to this, namely Brahma, the creator, and Vishnu, the preserver. To their protests, Shiva merely revealed his true form as a mystical shaft (lingam) of light (jyoti) and said, “see if you can find where I end.”

 The two who remained standing laughed at the challenge and quickly set off in opposite directions to find Shiva’s loose ends and bring the argument to a close. Truth is that because of Shiva’s filthy appearance, they would all be happy to bring his pride down a notch or two. But after eons searching through the vastness of Shiva’s light they finally decided to meet back in Kashi where it all began. When they got here, Vishnu immediately fell to his feet to offer his most respectful pranam to Shiva. But Brahma, who, despite his capacity for creation, has no eye for consequences, lied and said that he had found an end. It was just over the horizon not so far and it had only taken so long to return because he had decided to rest there for a while and fell asleep. Brahma had meanwhile made a deal with the Ketaki flower to tell a lie about finding the end of Shiva.

Almost nothing enrages Shiva more than arrogance, false pride, egoism and lies; so from this instigation (or was it a deliberate provocation) all of Shiva’s most fearsome aspects rose to the surface and with an upsurge of impulse he took the form of Bhairava and chopped off one of Brahma’s five heads. The greatest crimes in India are those that go against pure knowledge and wisdom; they call this killing a Brahmin. Even the Gods are subject to karma so this fierce Bhairava form of Shiva became Aghore and took up the skull and walked to four corners of India as a form of tapashia and renunciation of his life. This is the version of Shiva most emulated by modern naga babas and Aghores: naked, fearsome to behold, covered in the ashes of the funeral pyre from the cremation grounds where they often make their home. Every part of his external image brings fear and revulsion. But if we take the time to get to know a true aghore we will get to know and overcome our own fears. For that’s the social role of the Aghore, to show us that this is the worst it can get; this is our greatest fear; but actually, it’s not so bad.

After 12 years of wandering like this, Bhairava returned to Kashi, and not far from the train station washed himself in a small pond. All of his impurities (malas) dropped away, along with the skull which had been his companion for the past 12 years. He once again brought balance to the three gunas within himself, overcoming their excess and deficiencies, freeing himself from the wheel of time and the cycle of cause and effect. In short, even the most fearsome evil was able to overcome the inner turmoil of self and social recrimination and realise himself as that same light of the universe that is in all things without distinction of good or bad or any of the other opposites.

Star of Swati

Arcturus (Alpha-Bootis): The brightest star in the northern hemisphere and the fourth brightest in the night sky. “Guardian of the bear.” Often portrayed as a herdsman, herder of oxen, inventor of the plough. Arcturus’s mother was turned into bear by the jealous Hera. Later on she was chased by her own son until she ran into a sacred space where Zeus took pity on her and elevated her to the stars.

Tree of Swati

Arjuna Tree  (Terminalia Arjuna),: Guardian of the heart. Tibetans consider it the King of herbs. Leaves and flowers are offered to lord Vishnu and Ganesha.

The bark is the most used part of the tree from an Ayurvedic standpoint. The bark is high in calcium carbonate, sodium, magnesium, and aluminium. It is astringent in taste, Light, dry, cold. Pungent after digestion. It’s said to balance Kapha & Pitta. Excellent for the heart and blood circulation. Good for respiratory conditions, diabetes, stomach ulcers, and reduces cholesterol. Reduces stress on the heart due to stress.

You are a peace loving person, but adamant and independent. You respect others’ property. You may be uneasy with criticism of your work. You may have trouble controlling your temper once you lose it. A proper balance of mind will result in a more positive life. You are willing to extend a helping hand to others provided your own freedom is not questioned. You give respect unconditionally. You are the best friend in need and worst enemy of the hated. You do not hesitate to take revenge on the persons who are against you. You may experience difficult times in childhood. You initially try to give help and protection to those close to you, but later change your mind because of harsh criticism. Your intelligence and capacity to do the work are excellent. You may suffer, financially and mentally, even if born in a wealthy family, until your 25th year. However, you may not experience much progress in profession or business up to the age of 30 years. Thereafter you will have a golden period up to your 60th year. You may earn through the profession of gold smith, traveler or pharmacist. Your married life may not be so congenial. To outsiders it may seem that you are the most adjustable couple, but in reality you are not. You will have very good health. You may suffer from common human diseases.”

Shil-Ponde Female with Swati Ascendant: “This woman has a truthful honest straightforward character. She can be identified by her speech and by her manner of walking. Her gait and speech are rather heavy and ponderous, at least deliberate and purposeful. She has a very friendly disposition and is popular with her own sex. She will marry into a large family and she will be very devoted to her husband.”

Shil-Ponde Male with Swati Ascendant: “… 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.”

B.V. Raman Libra Rising: “idealistic, quick-witted, vindictive, forceful and positive. They generally have a fair complexion, middle-sized stature, phlegmatic constitution, handsome appearance, broad face, fine eyes, broad chest and regular features. Youthful appearance. They generally have a sensuous disposition. They are keen observers of human nature. They have keen foresight and reason things out from the standpoint of their own views. They love justice, peace, and order and are agreeable persons. They are ambitious, more idealistic than realistic or practical; they often contemplate schemes that are like building castles in the air. They are not sensitive to what others say of them. As political leaders or religious reformers they exert tremendous influence over the masses and sometimes their zeal and enthusiasm can go to such a pitch that they can force their views on unwilling minds. They are not easily amenable to reason. They are great lovers of music. Truth and honesty have a special appeal for them.”

Good deal makers, diplomats. Always flexible. May be able to fit into any atmosphere.

[Many charts have not been confirmed so ascendant and even Moon nakshatras may not be correct. There may be inconsistencies regarding the house placement of the planets as well. Use your own judgement. A healthy dose of scepticism should be applied to astrological data generally.]

Sun in Swati

They are very good with people, they express themselves in an outgoing way are are usually not afraid to speak their mind. They can be a little hard to read since the light from this Sun has to shine through a somewhat smoky, hazy sky. They are very independent and even when they are in a marriage or relationship they are likely to express themselves as if they are single, in an open relationship, or merely free to act independently. They might also make many promises they can’t keep. Relationships are difficult when everyone wants to remain independent. This is a good position for free spirits, confident on their own, making their own way, doing their own thing. They can get into trouble being the maverick. They are usually attractive, likeable and peaceful people. They relationships they do have will likely be good, but they will be lacking the bonds for life long attachment.

Despite the Sun’s debilitation, these people do often obtain positions of power and authority, but it’s usually fleeting, like Hillary Clinton taking this chair and that chair but never really holding onto anything for very long. One of their problems with holding authority is that they need to negotiate from a position of authority which can make them seem like great negotiators, but when they don’t have that upper hand in negotiations things quickly break down for them. They might also be proponents of fairness and equity but they may be hypocritical about this when it comes to the details; after all their way is the fair way.

In some ways this Sun in Swati is like a flickering flame. The guard who has to rattle his sabre to establish authority. The have to make sure people know who is the boss. But then they turn around and grovel for money or power. They feel powerless, they are not very creative or original, they can be plagiarists in some sense, alway compromising themselves in some way.

Bepin Behari Sun in Libra: “will send a very disturbing message. The individual will be surrounded by undesirable situations and will feel that he is missing something precious in life which he is unable to comprehend. A kind of veil of ignorance, a shadow of illusion will intensify around him and his soul will weep from the core of his being and he will not know from where that sorrowful voice is coming.”

Chamatkar Chintamani Sun in Libra: “Rude mean, wicked, much travelling, loss of honour and wealth, living by metals, jealous, service, debauchee, disrespect from superiors. Early marriage. Sincere, impartial and intuitive. If Moon aspects the native will be a prostitute suffering from venereal diseases; gain through shipping, fishery and such. With Mars aspecting the native is hasty, has capacity for games and sports, martial spirit and courage. Mercury aspecting the native is fond of music, painting, writing, composing poems and literary works. With Jupiter aspecting the native is a governor, charming personality, in advisory capacity with friends and foes alike. With Venus aspecting the native I wise but times, affluent with women and pleasure, gain through refinement. If Saturn is aspecting the native is sick, feeble, poor, cruel, mean and suffers loss in business.”


Sun in Swati Pada 2, Capricorn Navamsha: Sun’s debilitation pada. The biggest problem with this Sun is that it has to rattle the sabre to establish authority. But in the end they are not sovereign beings, they have to share power and authority; they have to compromise something of their soul

Moon in Swati 

(Moon in Swati. Last update 4 April 2023.)

The classic say that one born in Swati will be mild, happy, compassionate, affable, eloquent, virtuous, will incur debts, live in foreign places, be hatefully disposed to his relatives, be simple in dress, and will have few sons. They will try to please Gods and Brahmins, devote himself to enjoyments, and will have much wealth but little intelligence. They will be expert and clever at trading activities (a merchant with principles), a celebrity of great order (or one who has much education), lustful but self-restrained and in control of their passions and desires (capable of bearing thirst), and charitable.

Commentary: Comfortable with rhythms of trade, negotiation, diplomacy. Emotionally flexible, risky alliances. They are deal-makers, adaptable, kind and generous to others, sweet spoken, and spiritual. They will give much freedom to their partners but expect the same in return. They will often seek to negotiate their way through relationship problems rather than just go away. This leads them to be less than honest at times in order to please. They might promise more than they can deliver, or agree to things they don’t intend to follow thru with just to get some peace. There is always some room to manoeuvre with Swati. They like to please others; this might give them a certain magnetism that they cannot control. This is also a position of unusual alliances. They usually have a passion for the arts: singing, music, painting, dancing.

We find the sword of justice represented here with two judges of the supreme court: Ginsburg and Scalia, as well as two other infamous outlaws of free speech: Snowden and Assange.

These natives are unlikely to see their mahadasha unless they live to be well over 100 years old.

Bepin Behari Moon in Libra: “Moon in Libra will induce greater movement towards the pleasures of life: at this stage, the psyche will struggle to have increasingly more and more intense experience of worldly pleasures. It becomes incapable of learning spiritualising lessons from the earthly experiences. The tamasic proclivities will be greatly accentuated.”

Chamatkar Chintamani Moon in Libra: “Much movable property, gain and success through partnership, morose and irritated for nothing, soft-spoken, courteous and warm hearted, success in love and marriage, balanced and artistic if Mercury is in good aspect. Much travelling. If aspected by the Sun the native lives through misfortunes and great struggle, disrespected, travelling and issueless. Aspect from Mars makes him aggressive, a prig, mean, debauchee, foolish and having visual defects. Aspect from Mercury grants him art, wealth, learning, name and fame. Jupiter aspect can make him a famous jeweller. Aspect from Venus allows the native to enjoy good health and wealth. He will be a great scholar with an attractive personality. Aspect from Saturn gives him conveyance and devotion to mother, but misfortune.”


Moon in Swati Pada 1, Sagittarius Navamsha: Brave, scholarly, knowledgeable, with good power to grasp new concepts. They are typically handsome and charming speak little excess, good speakers, capable in doing any job, endowed with sophisticated body but strong, critical in all undertakings, and winners of the hearts of people. They will follow family traditions and rituals studiously. They can be philanthropists, but also arrogant in their knowledge and connections.

Moon in Swati Pada 2, Capricorn Navamsha: Tends towards more corporate agreements and working within the system. recollect the help rendered by others, they undertake forbidden jobs, untruthful, handsome, hate brothers, irreligious, extremely stingy but endowed with a good wife and children. The most rooted and least fragile. It can be a little selfish when it comes to personal comfort and their material well-being. They typically have good business sense.

Moon in Swati Pada 3, Aquarius Navamsha: They tend to have an activity agenda that increase their enemy circle.  great fools, expend money and time irresponsibly, agriculturist, not liked by the circle of friends and relatives, always thinking and unwanted by any. Short-tempered and haunted by enemies. They will be spend-thrift and lustful. They may however have a philosophical mindset and like to associate with deep wispful thinkers. They will do well in business; especially in partnership.

Moon in Swati Pada 4, Pisces Navamsha: They tend to retreat into privacy due to get away from all the pretentious pleasantries. Prominent persons. They are liked by all, a little angry, respectful of teachers and wealthy. They are happy with their family and children. They are wise and bright and always interested in doing good works. Very flexible and adaptable in difficult situations. Intelligent but emotional. They have to work harder than others but success is certain in the end. They will get help from friends.

Mars in Swati  

Good business negotiator, aggressive negotiation, competes to win the peace. They will use alliance building to go to war. This is the art of war applied to business. They might take advantage of the peaceful good nature of others in order to conquer them; they will be skilled the use of pleasantries to win over others. They might be involved with aggressive takeovers either militarily or in business. They might seem to have a challenging approach to others or see others as somewhat of a threat. They usually attain high status and they work hard for it. They will be active as balancer, facilitator or arbitrator designer very well in contract negotiation, business, alliance building, collaboration with others.

They are so nice that the enemy is always defeated, this is s little like the femme-fetale who gets you to drop your guard before going on the attack. They don’t mind to use a little force or threats (even if it’s just a somewhat menacing tone) to gain peace and achieve agreement.

Cold War, balance of power,

Chamatkar Chintamani Mars in Libra: “The native has the eye of a scientist. Cultured growth of the native. Much opposition and rivalry. Deaths, losses but gain through opposite sex. Reverses through business and love affairs; develops sanity later in life. Blessed with noble offspring. If afflicted, trouble through relatives, friends and partner. With Sun aspecting the native will be practical in his approach to life and business, a successful executive, income, expenditure and pleasure are rife. When excited, trouble though partner and much opposition from friends and foes. Moon’s aspect makes him quick in action and indifferent to the consequences. More than one union, averse to mother, much sickness and fear from water. Aspect from Mercury famous gain through literary and scientific pursuits. Fond of art and music, untrustworthy, Progeny denied. Aspect from Jupiter brings good fortune, time for new ventures, philanthropic and noble. Aspect from venus gives energy, the spirit of adventure and a passion for women folk. Government recognition. Aspect from Saturn boosts his leadership, brings great name in the native place; a friend of the community. Prosperous.”

Chamatkar Chintamani Mercury in Libra: “Gain through better business management, large hearted, witty, rational, respect for God and Guru. Best suited for any kind of intellectual exercise. If Sun aspects the native will be poor, easily provoked, head strong, mental powers, debauchee. Moon indicates trust, god fearing, firm, popular and full of advisory capacity.

Jupiter in Swati 

Beliefs may be flexible to fit any one on one interaction, but they usually have knowledge in the arts of war, engineering, aviation, physics. Expands the scope of shadowy alliances. Lots of risky alliances, and shadowy unspoken agreements. They have an ability to talk a lot but say very little. Quite a few musicians also have this placement.

The women will seek a partner who offers them independence and social opportunities. Three can be a fairly large imbalance or something unusual and shadowy about the marriage alliance.

Emil Lenz: “Physicist studying electricity and electromagnetism. Joule–Lenz law. states that the power of heating generated by an electrical conductor is proportional to the product of its resistance and the square of the current. Also discovered electroplating. Electroplating is a general name for processes that create a metal coating on a solid substrate through the reduction of cations of that metal by means of a direct electric current. The part to be coated acts as the cathode (positive electrode) of an electrolytic cell; the electrolyte is a solution of a salt of the metal to be coated; and the anode (negative electrode) is usually either a block of that metal, or of some inert conductive material. The current is provided by an external power supply.” — wiki

Masutatsu Oyama (military aviation, karate founder (4th pada)). One story of Oyama’s youth involves Lee giving young Oyama a seed which he was to plant; when it sprouted, he was to jump over it one hundred times every day. As the seed grew and became a plant, Oyama later said, “I was able to jump between walls back and forth easily.” He trained in aviation with the Japanese military. Many of his friends became kamikaze pilots in the war. After the war he would go around and beat up American military police until he was known all over Tokyo. By this time he already had extensive training in various forms of karate and physical education. As he became known for his aggression with the police he went into seclusion in the mountains to train. Oyama greatly credited his reading of The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi, a famous Japanese swordsman, for changing his life completely. Oyama’s own book on Karate is still considered to be the “Karate Bible;” he has written over 30. He suffered from Osteoarthritis and eventually died from lung cancer.

“Timing is important in dancing and pipe or string music, for they are in rhythm only if timing is good. Timing and rhythm are also involved in the military arts, shooting bows and guns, and riding horses. In all skills and abilities there is timing…. There is timing in the whole life of the warrior, in his thriving and declining, in his harmony and discord. Similarly, there is timing in the Way of the merchant, in the rise and fall of capital. All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this. In strategy there are various timing considerations. From the outset you must know the applicable timing and the inapplicable timing, and from among the large and small things and the fast and slow timings find the relevant timing, first seeing the distance timing and the background timing. This is the main thing in strategy. It is especially important to know the background timing, otherwise your strategy will become uncertain.” — Miyamoto Musashi; The Book of Five Rings

Erwin Schrodinger studied quantum mechanics which is also applicable for military use.

Saturn in Swati 

Cold, hard wind. Saturn in Swati is very much like bamboo: hard but flexible. It’s like this incredible mix of concrete and steel blades of grass that blow in the wind down-town. These office towers massive structures, usually interconnected to use both major aspects of Saturn, but it’s here in airy Libra and Swati where the fairies live. Cultured and educated: formally, often with some music education as per Saraswati. Swati, as a vehicle for prana, would, in this case, become a vehicle for the masses, a vehicle for power.

Saturn is exalted in Swati and is in his own navamsha in the 2nd & 3rd pada, making him quite at home so that he gets a favourable response from his cold hard ways. This is the perfect atmosphere for responsibility, commitment, firmness.

Rahu in Swati

When Rahu is in the 1st or second pada of Swati, Ketu will be in the 3rd or 4th pada of Ashwini. Rahu and Ketu will both be in their own signs so will both produce pretty good results. They usually have very high intelligence and make good teachers by their willingness to delegate and work with others while at the same time maintaining a high degree of independence. They do not usually like to work for others because they cannot often agree to the terms of the contract. Shady, smoky assumed deals and irregular ways of doing business. Those with Rahu in the first couple of pada can be innovators of business and war and will not be opposed to unconventional means of making alliances. This can lead to unsuitable or unusual partners or partnerships. Ketu from his side will have them able to quickly come to help people without really thinking about it. The first couple of pada are usually also more sincere in this because of the sense of selflessness in their help brought on by Ketu in Aries. They also seem to hold very strong alpha characteristics without putting any effort into appearing so.

May have an uneasy alliance with technology, foreigners, outcasts, Brings a fascinating flexibility of mind or body. They might be extremely adaptable and capable of making alliances even with their enemies. They might be involved in all kinds of shady business deals or taboo relationships. These are the ones who get into the most trouble in trying to please others. They seek to elevate themselves through agreement and negotiation and are fascinated by others; people pleasers. Attraction and repulsion may act contrary to one’s own interests.

Fascinated by the wind. Irregular winds. This Rahu may seem to know everything and have all the answers, but they typically over-reach their capabilities.  They will none-the-less have a fascination for learning and education and often become teachers themselves. They want to do business and make connections that will get them ahead.

They are natural yogi’s in some ways: they are always looking for balance, for the thing that will bring both sides together. They want to be fair and honest. The are fascinated by agreements and they often try to get in somewhat inappropriate relationships. They can easily break caste of age barriers in relationships, but they usually try to marry up in some way. But women (or the opposite sex) tend to be their weak point. Whatever natural strength they get from Ketu Aries is drained away when they get into a relationship. Women with this typically have no problem with relationships, but a weak willed man who looses himself to a relationship is disgrace to the woman in his life. This is acceptable, if not expected for a woman.

Ketu in Swati

These people might be continuously hosting people which gives them no boundaries between themselves and others. They can strike up a conversation anywhere, anytime. Jian Ghomeshi and Joe Rogan are radio hosts who interview (ed) others almost continually. This tends to make them a little detached in their relationships with others giving them a broad profile in society, but harming their personal relationships. They will have a lot of random people go through their life, unsuitable partners, Their whole life will be about satisfying their desires, and cravings to satisfy their own selfish.
