Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu

BPL commentary:

For Dhaniztha gentlemen, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Whether masculine or feminine, Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven action (Kuja). The result is powerful and dynamic.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Delphinus

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-oriented and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Themes of brotherhood, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."

Distinctive features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • Surya in bhava-7 * center of agreements, brightly negotiating, focus on trade, intelligence for equity, peer entitlements, eye on contractual relationships
  • Surya-Simha * Khaga * Khagaya * air-moving
  • Surya-yuti-Kuja * confidently progressive, bright warrior, entitled to conquer, radiantly pioneering
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, radiantly descriptive
  • Surya-yuti-Guru * confidently expansive, bright teacher, entitled to philosophize, radiantly generous
  • Surya-yuti-Zukra * confidently harmonious, bright bargainer, entitled to pleasures, radiantly diplomatic, self-reflexively attractive

Despite four graha in Simha yuti brilliant Surya, remarkably, NONE of the Simha graha are combust.

  • 9 of the 12 bhava-pati reside in a single bhava, Simha 7 = relationships, advisors,
  • 10th-from-10th bhava-7 is often a more potent indicator of top-ranked public achievement status, moreso even than karmasthana-10. Top careers are built on the foundation of peer relationships.

The lords of nine houses, controlling 75% of the nativity, occupy Simha rashi = personal empowerment, brilliance, and self-appropriated regal privilege.Self-styled aristocrat

In Surya-centered Simha, commonplace social or legal rules (Shani) are perceived as not relevant to the life of a highly entitled, creative, self-empowered personality.

  • operating his private jets at all hours with no concern for local noise ordinance (with minimal sanctions) and championship ocean-yacht racing (Chandra-Rahu)
  • as well as a very distinctive Japanese aristocratic home built to traditional specifications in northern California.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Chandra in classroom-6 ailing mother. His mother, feeling unable to care for the baby, gave infant Larry to relatives when he was an infant; they did not meet again until he was 48 years old.

Manipulative and powerful of Azlesa Chandra amplified by Chandra-yuti-Rahu.

  • natural mother = Chandra-yuti-Rahu in bhava-6

  • adoptive mother = 8th-from-Chandra = his Kumbha radical lagna

Chandra-yuti-Rahu, intensifying Azlesa Chandra's drive to control and manipulate.

Extremely strong and ambitious personality with a definite tendency to go "over the top" in all things both business and personal, due to the combined effects of uber-Surya's cluster and Chandra-yuti-Rahu .

Chandra naturally craves housing, shelter, transportation, schooling, nourishment, and infrastructure. With strength in Karkata and mega-amplified by Rahu, Professor Chandra could be solely capable of amassing Ellison's extraordinary real-estate and vehicle collection. However, the Simha graha in bhava-7 4th-from-4th add vastly more content to this emotionally motivated obsession (Rahu) with buying homes and properties.

From Chandra Lagna

Measuring the strength of the nativity from Chandra lagna, the great complex of Simha graha will occupy the relative dhana bhava signifying tremendous development of the mechanisms which support acquisition of collected units-of-value.

A super-deluxe lifestyle creates regal entitlements as Lords of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, and 12 as counted from Chandra-lagna are residing in the 2nd-from-Chandra.

Entitlement to accumulated hoards (Surya, 2); self-made financial capital (Budha, 3); palatial homes and prestige vehicles (Zukra, 4); competitive, empowered, creative, dramatic children (Mangala, 5); expansion of conflict and disagreement but overall good humor; accidents due to over-confidence (Guru, 6); wisdom-teachings and fortunate faith (Guru, 9); extremely dynamic and self-driven career (Mangala,10); luxury income and splendid network of friends (Zukra, 11); extensive foreign travel funded by all the assets of Simha (Budha, 12).

Ellison's holdings include vast array of flashy (Singha, brightness, glitter) homes, landed properties, and vehicles of transport including luxury cars, yachts, and aircraft suggested by the acquisition-complex in 4th-from-4th

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Atmakaraka = innovation, competition, hunting, pursuit , championship

  • Mangala in bhava-7 * drive toward bargaining, pursuit of agreement, invasive negotiation, diplomatic dynamics, energized contractual conquests
  • Mangala-Singha * vigorous pursuit of fame, drama; push toward entitlement
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * energized confidence, dynamic genius, masculine force joins willful charm, potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal, potential for aggressive gestures, speech, and writing
  • Kuja-yuti-Guru * energized growth, dynamic generosity, masculine force joins optimistic expansion, potential for aggressive preaching, indoctrinating actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Zukra * energized bargaining, dynamic trading, masculine force joins feminine allure, potential for aggressive mating, partnering actions

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru generates an extraordinary material wealth environment. Mr. Ellison's remarkable personal treasury was developed via the Singha cluster and defended via the Chandra cluster.

Expansive Guru dhanapati-2 affluence accumulation rules 2-and-11, and Guru conjoins Budha ruler of 5-and-8, and Guru conjoins Zukra ruler of 4-and-9.

Guru rules Dhanuzya Karakamsha = arudha lagna = 11 economic profits, gains, goals, achievements

According to Wikipedia, "Forbes listed Ellison's 2005 net worth as $18.4 billion, making him one of the richest people in America, and the ninth richest man in the world. For a short period in 2000, Ellison was The richest man in the world. ...Ellison is known for his extravagant lifestyle."

Guru rules 6th-from-Chandra (11) multiplying the frenemies * litigious protection of proprietary software, data security technology

Guru in 2nd-from-Chandra, rules 2nd-from-Kumbha lagna, occupies bhava-7. Wealth from building high-value relationships. Kumbha-Dhaniztha lagna = sales

His core business is computer database (2) network software (11).

Ellison is said to own an extraordinary portfolio of real-estate properties along with luxury power vehicles such as military jets and yachts. Matches an extraordinary collection of celebrity (Simha) graha in bhava-7 = 4th-from-4th = vehicles and landed properties

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

ruler of 4 occupies 7 in company of multiple flashy Singa graha * associated with a portfolio of homes, islands, landed properties and transportation vehicles including cars, ships, and aircraft

Multiple Marriages

In a masculine nativity, the number of graha associated with Professor Bright Bhrigu will often predict the number of wives or avowed female life partners.

Five graha in the bhava containing Zukra would suggest five marriages. Ellison divorced for the fourth time in 2010.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani rules Dhaniztha-Vasu . Pada 3-4 are distinguished by a genius for teamwork. Ellison's management style is said to be "totally delegating". He controls the vision (Surya), but he passes the privilege of active execution (normally) to qualified others.

Shani lagnesha occupies 12th-from-Chandra and Shani rules the the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra , indicating emotional difficulties in marriage notably a loss of marriage agreement through extramarital bedroom affairs (12), and a general inability to accept maturity of the spouse, leading to pursuit of younger and younger replacements.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Chandra-yuti-Rahu in bhava-6. Oracle's global commercial success has been crafted at least partially via decades of lawsuits and perpetual (Chandra) litigation has been a keynote of executive style.

Rahu is typically successful in bhava-6 when He uses litigation, accusations, betrayal, and defense of territory (Chandra-yuti-Rahu) as elements in His toolkit for acquisition of privilege

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu-Makara-Draco * Ketu in Bhava-12 * Ketu's ruler Shani occupies 6th-from-Ketu and 12th-from-Chandra-Rahu (note regular pattern of polarizing catalysis during the Chandra-Shani period)

ruler-of-12 indicating losses is a weakened Shani in 6th from 12th whilst dispersing Ketu disperses the losses from 12 * thus extremely minimal financial losses compared to stupendous accumulation of units of value

Ellison's social profile is distinguished by his four divorces attributable to Ketu in 6th-from the Singha-7 cluster.

"A perusal of astrological literature bearing up 'Wealth' reveals clearly that in order to become rich, one should have in his horoscope combinations which comprehend

  • a point of contact between lords of Lagna, 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th.
  • Permutations and combinations of these lords give rise to a stupendous number of Dhana Yogas "
