In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

| Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Bill Gates in 2013, age 58
Karakamsha = bhava-1 personality
Punarvasu radical lagna. According to Shil Ponde, one of the leading characteristics of the 1st pada of the abundantly productive Punarvasu nativity is that "You can undertake several jobs at one time and complete them all successfully."
Surya nichha-bhanga * Kuja, lord of Surya's uttama rashi Mesha, occupies a kendra from both lagna and Chandra.
pitrikaraka Surya = father-figure. Abundant self-made financial wealth . Surya rules 3-commercial business. Surya somewhat weakened in bhava-5 = politics, theatre, philanthropy, and literature. Bill Gates Sr. municipal attorney heading large firm, local celebrity in Seattle, noted philanthropist and civic leader, successful commercial businessman.
dhanesha-treasurer Chandra in kendra-10, 9th-from-swakshetra. Expectation of prosperity and wisdom (9)
dhanapati-2 Chandra occupies a navamsha of Kuja. Radix Mars = means of acquired wealth. In Kanya with uttama-Budha, Mangala gives superior intelligence in calculations and logical arguments.
Chandra-Uttarabhadra expresses the benefits of ruler uttama-Shani
developments in family life, the transmission of lineage values, collections of worthy items, expansion of knowledge of history, languages, and values traditions. dhanapati-2 Chandra = the primary significator of visible assets, hoard, treasury, collected wealthdhanapati-2 Chandra in the artha 9th-from- dhana bhava-2 receives drishti of Vriddhipathi-11 Mangala creating a powerful dhana yoga
This is not a rags-to-riches story. Gates had distinguished parents and he enjoyed upbringing in a privileged upper-bourgeois childhood home. His mother was an organization leader serving on charitable and social-progressive boards-of-directors working with the national entreasured-elite. Uttarabhadrapada-Chandra-10. His parents' lifelong commitment to public service familiarized him with philanthropic practices (Meena-Chandra) enacting principles of social justice (uttama-Shani). The nativity suggests that one has carried for a lifetime, a clear moral (4) vision of how to compassionately and reasonably re-distribute acquired assets for global benefit.
Budha rules Arudha lagna = bhava-4 foundations of civilization
Behari opines, "Mercury occupying this sign and house produces a great Yoga, heralding the birth of a great soul. Your thinking is very evolved and guides you to a high social status. Your understanding of divine wisdom is deep; you are especially an expert in the life sciences. There is no aggressive behavior."
accurate uttama-Budha + incisively criticizing Mangala-Kanya = strategic belligerence, drishti of Kuja upon 7 (lawcourts) 10 (leadership) and 11 (economic systems)
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani Ashtamsha events 1983-1985 and 2011-2014 via bhava-5-Thula speculative intelligence. 1983-1985 = long delay in bringing out the first edition of Windows operating system for the new PC appliance Uttama-Shani + Surya-yuti-Zukra occupy the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . therefore one becomes is accustomed to long delays in creative-speculative outcome.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Rahu-Kumbha 10th navamsha = leadership role in the information economy
Ketu Mahadasha * age 19.8 until 26.8 occurred at a socially harmless and creatively helpful time. Ketu periods follow a script of anti-regulation when a certain amount of "blowing in the wind" is expected. Ketu's ruler Zukra controls 3-8 from Chandra-lagna and 5-12 from Mithunaya lagna, suggesting identity transformations and early relationships. The seven lost years of Ketu struck Bill at the perfect age. Very young adulthood is a time when western society allows its developing young leaders to experiment and float through various roles.
Marriage = Mangala-4 produces a significant Kuja Dosha.
Mutual aspect of dhanesha-treasurer-2 Chandra (assets) to vriddhipathi-11 Kuja (economic gains)
Vriddhipathi-11 Kuja yuti uttama lagnesha-1 Budha Budha-yuti-Kuja
Problem-pursuer Kanya Kujashows the powerfully critical, incisive, investigative penetration of Mars.
Budha holds the higher degree winning the yuddha - which means that metalized computational and interpretive analyses use critical thinking modalities to explain situations rather than Kuja's default which is to instinctively react.
This combination of Budha-yuti-Kuja receiving drishti of Chandra-Meena-10 has the potential to collapse into simple complaining, but due to the dominance of uttama-Budha the logical arguments -- however vociferous -- are not overwhelmed by rogesha Mangala's apprehension of problematicity.
Vriddhipathi-11 Mars occupies a navamsha of Budha. Radix Budha indicates the means of economic gain. Uttama-Budha = also lagnesha-1 = mental focus. Add to the mental acuity, the energetic enthusiasm and aggressive critiquing of Mangala-Kanya. Pursuit of logical outcomes . Like most financially privileged people, his rogesha-6 is comfortably configured - which means he has extremely high intelligence for managing debt.
Kuja is associated with animosity and illness, but because Kuja is dominated in degree by the excellent uttama-Budha, the most vulgar effects generally do not emerge.
Guru is a multiplier. Guru in bhava-3 indicates multiplicity of commercial activities, many reports and announcements, much detailed writing, a tremendous number of meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops, and presentations.
Brihaspati's ruler is the nichha-bhanga Surya-5 in 3rd-from-3rd suggesting that the father-figure provides substantial role-modeling for the business behaviors.
uttama-Shani + swakshetra Zukra = putra-bhava-5= intelligence, Children, Genius, Speculation, Entitlements

commentary on Madhya Vayasi Dhana Yoga
"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 "

re: "Altruistic Intent"
14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso ~~ H.H. Dalai Lama, The Dalai Lama at Harvard: Lectures on the Buddhist Path to Peace
Three modes of generating an altruistic intention to become enlightened are described -- like a king, like a boatman, and like a shepherd.
These are indications of the style of the altruistic motivation for becoming enlightened.
In actual fact, there is no way that a Bodhisattva either would want to or could delay achieving full enlightenment.
As much as the motivation to help others increases, so much closer does one approach Buddhahood."
