BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."


William Randolph Hearst in the 1940's

Ernest L. Meyer wrote about Hearst's journalistic standards: "Mr. Hearst in his long and not laudable career has inflamed Americans against Spaniards, Americans against Japanese, Americans against Filipinos, Americans against Russians, and in the pursuit of his incendiary campaign he has printed downright lies, forged documents, faked atrocity stories, inflammatory editorials, sensational cartoons and photographs and other devices by which he abetted his jingoistic ends."

Distinctive features of the Nativity


Millicent Hearst in 1916


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Meza * uttama * Suryaya * the supreme one
  • Surya in bhava-8 * center of emergence ,intelligence for trauma healing, brightly transformative, focus on discovery, eye on occulted mysteries
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, creatively intelligent sibling-cohort, radiantly descriptive, articulate in drama and games, self-confident announcements, talks about politics , creatively intelligent sibling-cohort, radiantly descriptive

Surya-8 rules flamboyant, sensationalizing, entertaining Chandra in Uttaraphalguni


Dad was a gold, silver, and timber speculator who became a winner-takes-all plutocrat. The political, charismatic, speculative Father became a single-term USA Senator for five years, during 1886-1891.

Father uttama-Surya-8 ** Budha-yuti-Surya ++ Budha lagnesha karmesha

uttama- Surya suggests a selfi-reflexive, confident glory-hunter father who was would have been a brightly attention-demanding but yet mysterious figure in young William's life.

8th-from-Surya = inheritance from father = Rahu in bhava-3

Hearst inherited (8) a massive financial estate from his father including gold mines, huge timber acreage, and palatial ranchland.

Surya politics

Dad also bequeathed a hidden wealth of political (Surya) connections to his son. However with minor exception, WR Hearst lost nearly every competitive political election that he entered due to Surya rules-12 ++ Shani rules-6. Hearst won two-year terms in the House of Representatives but lost two expensive campaigns for Mayor of New York.

Although Hearst controlled a fabulous amount of material asset, he was nonetheless unable to rise in a political career after two, 2-term successful elections to the USA Congress. Surya-8 effectively prevented his direct election to political roles; however he retained and indeed amplified his hidden (8) influence via his power to deploy money and connections.

Uttaraphalguni Kanya lagna + Chandra in Uttaraphalguni * inflammatory ethno hate politics

Hearst was pro-Fascist in the lead-up to World-War-2; he accepted newspaper advertising throughout his media empire supporting the claims of both Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler and Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini .

A long-time resident of California and owner of huge properties there, Hearst expressed an extraordinary bigotry against Mexicans and Mexican-Americans. Hearst's overall ideological vitriol was further distinguished by the sensaltionalist yellow journalism that and fabricated stories to suit his whims and drum up sales.

The movie Citizen Kane is based on Hearst's angry, contemptuous, entitled life.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in Uttaraphalguni * Aryamna * comforted by dramatic, radiant centrality * protectors of celebrity entitlement, political theatre, glittering creativity
  • Chandra-Kanya * comforted by rhythmic remedial service
  • Chandra in classroom-1 * comfort in glowing incandescent embodiment, familiar with forward action, innovation, first-arrival, aristocracy, soothed by new birth, undulating personality
  • Somana-yuti-Guru * Emotionally effusive, needs to expand, sensitive to guidance figures, sheltered by doctrine, soothed by fertility, feels like a teacher-preacher
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted, sensitive to seniority figures, soothed by structure, sheltered by hierarchies, needs austerity, feels like a regulator

Somana-yuti-Guru connotes physical body size and fertility. Mr. Hearst was a tall, large-framed human. His body measured at 6-foot-3-inches height and he was long-lived at 88 years. He produced five children (4 sons and 1 privately born daughter).


Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * suggests a controlling or punitive mother whose love is conditional upon performance of the child's socially approved behaviors. However, Somana-yuti-Guru is expansive, charitable, and generous emotionally. Hearst's mother Phoebe was somewhere in the middle. He was a typical lonely child who produced many (five) children. Mom was a respected socialite fundraiser for charitable causes, and she adhered to a strict behavioral code. However the 6/8 shad-ashtakya angle between Surya-and-Chandra reveals that the parents were not aligned, and uttama-Surya-8 indicates that the father would have been excessively dominating.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


On 28-Apr-1903 at the age of 40, Hearst was formally married to the New York City vaudeville performer Millicent Wilson. A natural figure in high-attention settings, Millicent promoted Hearst's reputation, career, and business interests by engaging in highly visible and much admired charitable programs, helping the poor of New York City. Although Millicent's background was sometimes questioned (her mother had run a boarding house bordello, and young Millicent was suspected of having practiced prostitution there) nevertheless her public relations instincts were sharp, and no scandal ever could be proven. The couple had four sons.

When William Hearst's interests wandered to the company of dramatist Mario Davies, he moved to California and brought his material opulence with him. Although Hearst maintained the facade of public dignity by maintaining the legal first marriage to Millicent, the majority of his romantic life 1915-1951 was spent with actress-model Marion Davies. They had a daughter, but to reduce scandal the child was raised by a nearby family. 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-2 ruled by Zukra-9 in 8th-from-2nd. Zukra-yuti-Ketu indicates that a second lifepartner may be un-avowed or un-contracted.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of conversation * proactive delivery of information * push toward explanatory instruction * champion of process management
  • Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala * drive toward high position, pursuit of social authority, fights for rank and status, , invasive regulation, energized governing conquests

Budha-Budha swabhukti 1937

1-10 Budha gives effect of radically transformative 3-8 Mangala

1937 following the Great Depression = onset of the disastrous debt which collapsed the public facade of Hearst's empire. Much of the wealth was preserved in secret containment. However the colossal facade of controlling newspaper and cinema in dominating, opulent glamour did come to a crashing end. He was old enough to barely be concerned, and hidden trusts remained sustaining.

Rahu drishti + Guru expansive drishti upon bhava-11 containing Ketu-Zukra greatly exacerbated his sudden economic upheaval following the Great Depression.

However the post-Depression transition was mainly from iconic active personality of the Shani Mahadasha (Shani-1) into hidden wealth of the Budha Mahadasha (Budha-8). Despite the banks (Zukra rules-2 banks) taking formal executive control of his failed businesses, Hearst's personal lifestyle of ostentatious luxury and autocratic decision-making continued until the end of his life during Budha-Guru bhukti.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Kanya * much ministry of service, many servants + employees, much labor, many argumentations, much medication, exploitable beliefs, doctrine of humility
  • Guru in bhava-1 * dig-bala * much vitality, jolly personality, generous disposition, numerous identities, much jovial competition, many cheerful sporting activities, may signal expansive aura, tall height, or wide girth, embodiment of optimistic belief
  • Guru-yuti-Chandra matri-karaka * multiple mother-figures, much expansion of folkways, much humanistic cultural philosophy, large sheltering settlements
  • Guru-yuti-Shani atta-karaka * multiple elder-figures, abundant structure, many rules, expansive hierarchies and systems, much humanistic social philosophy, large-scale responsibilities

Guru-Kanya = bandesha-4 + yuvatipathi-7 * kendra-adhipathi-dosha

Guru-1 rules 4-7. Brihaspati shows the profitable mining operations (4) which launched his father's brief political career.

Guru-Shani-Chandra receive drishti from secretive, hidden-assets Arudra-Mangala-10

Guru owns 4, Guru owns the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra, Guru-yuti-Chandra (expansion of place of settlement) Guru casts drishti into 4

  • Hearst owned palatial properties, minerals mines, rancherias, forest tracts, and vehicles
  • Relaying on his own sense of entitlement, Hearst generally expressed disregard for financial discipline or regulations Ketu-Zukra

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Vrizabha * swakshetra * appreciation of valuable arrangements, likes capitalization * attracted to fruits of the forests and fields * pleasures of collections * acquisitive sensuality* enjoys preservation and accrual * aesthetic of sounds * historic restorations * prefers containment of precious goods
  • Zukra-9 * pleasure of philosophical doctrine, enjoys paradigmatic beliefs, feminine-figures preach-teach on principles, global equity, appreciation of theory, philosophy of justice
  • Zukra-yuti-Ketu * sweetened surrender, gracious abandonment, vacuous feminine-figures, appreciation for fair terms of dissolution, disoriented negotiations, unconcerned with conventional beauty, empty contracts * arrangements according to impermanent agreement

Zukra-Vrizabha rules 2-9 Hearst was attracted to feminine singers with beautiful face, hair, voice, and mouth (Vrizabha); he also enjoyed good food and drink.

Due to Zukra-yuti-Ketu, Heart's first union with a singer-waitress was never officially sanctified, but it lasted 20 years from his college days until his fortieth birthday.

On his 40th birthday he married a beautiful showgirl who sang and danced in musical theatre. She was reputed to have worked as a part-time prostitute in her mother's brothel Zukra-6 but with complaint-disregarding Ketu in Bhava-6 Hearst was unfazed by the stigma

Zukra rules 11, and wife-1 was a genius of large assemblies and community interaction. Using her gracious social networking skills, wife-1 significantly assisted his political and business promotions.

After producing five sons into marriage-1, Hearst began an extramarital relationship with yet a third beautiful singer-actress. The third union sustained until his decease (age 88). She gave private musical performances for Hearst and a small circle of friends in their elegant shared home Hearst Castle. Her songs (Zukra) and her company were said to be his main source of pleasure, especially after his business empire began to collapse (Ketu).

Hearst never legally divorced his first wife, and the second union was stigmatized by the prevailing bourgeois ethics. Thus the second lifepartnership was unaccounted (Ketu) on the public register Zukra-yuti-Ketu.

Zukra-6 enjoys the aesthetic of conflict, war, exploitation, and mistreatment.

Zukra-6 would normally indicate addictive tendencies; however the grip of addiction is loosened via Zukra-yuti-Ketu. Furthermore, despite his lifetime of 88 years, Hearst did not experience a Mahadasha of Zukra nor did he endure a Mahadasha of Ketu. Therefore whatever self-medicating behaviors might have been operating, his life was not sabotaged by those issues.

Zukra-6 is associated with debt. His lifestyle was never seriously crimped, but Hearst did need to abandon control of most of his businesses after 1936.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Kanya * heavy old accusations * obliged to sustain litigious disagreements * rigidly persistent disease conditions * vital energy compression stress zone = colon + digestive tract * must materialize orderly ways to aid the injured and help the mistreated * weighty subordinate tasks * strictly imposed hierarchical conditions of enforced servitude * must work within proletarian master-slave systems * must respect slow, elder physicians and their outdated remedies * must accept the limitations of institutionalized service * insufficient pharmacy * must work with aging, dried medications * must continue to minister to the suffering despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-1 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious personality. One must act under pressure, have to move but slowly, push forward against stiff limitations; cautious, conventional identity; tense competition, muscular fatigue, chronic impeded movement, seizures and cramps. Heavy legacy pressure against free movement. Resistance to new ideas and direct action. Resentment toward constriction of physical appearance. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles, conventionalized identity, and conduct befitting an elder
  • Shani-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * resistance against protection, limited comfort, emotional discipline. constrained flow, regulated feelings
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * resistance against expansion, elder teachers, pragmatic philosophy, limited understanding, doctrinal discipline, constrained growth, regulated beliefs

rogesha Shani-1 = critic of governments (Shani) , promoter of class-conflict and exploitation

Shani-Kanya-1 rules 5-politics + 6-accusations, imbalance, litigation, toxicity, crime, false information

Hearst used the power of his newspaper empire to spread his virulent opposition to the ideas and personality of POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson. Hearst's criticisms - often falsified - helped to solidify (Shani) USA national and Congressional resistance to Wilson's diplomatic, academic, unification program.

The conciliatory and diplomatic world unification proposed by Wilson's League of Nations was anathema to Hearst's idea of racial-cultural superiority of the Teutonic peoples. In addition, Hearst's fortune was based in several industries which would benefit from a large-scale war. Therefore his ideology and his fortune were united in promoting a global territorial race war, which he did with vigor.

Scholars believe that the League of Nations could have diplomatically averted the Second World War. However Hearst's influence via his notorious "yellow journalism" media was so substantial that his messaging was considered the leading element that spelled defeat for the League of Nations, precursor to the present-day United Nations.

Hearst was equally virulently opposed to the New Deal socialistic Depression-recovery strategies of POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hearst accused FDR of being a communist, while FDR accused Hearst of being a fascist.

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

  • Rahu-Vrizchika * shimmering illusion of mystery * craving for rebirthed identity * unusual approach to dangerous, cultural-mixing conditions * over-reaching engagement with hidden empowerments * preposterous camouflage * mesmerizing power of rejuvenation * fabulous surgeries * exotic undisclosed assets * mask of transformative arcane knowledge * intriguing enactment of revolutionary force * marvelous obscure liaisons * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of healing shakti, emergency intervention, seeks privilege via secret-revealing, shocking insights, discovery-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, photography, journalistic reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging. Craves publication. Desires a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role. Over-reaching in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Exciting, opportunistic engagement with process management, manufacturing, business administration, instructions, information technology. Trespasses cultural boundaries of cohort-conversations and evangelistic proclamations. Ambitious character of the sibling-cousin, collaborative team, or touring ensemble.

Rahu-3 Passions in 3-newpapers, radio, communications, evangelism

Notorious hater of the British Empire and all things English. However he liked Wales and the Welsh, and he bought a castle in Wales. (Likely a dreamlike remembrance of ancient Celtic life.)

Hearst was a Germano-phile; loved all things German. He was a supporter the fascist programs promoted by Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler

Rahu drishti to 4-homeland, 6-war, 8-occult secrets

Hearst's sixth child, his hidden daughter with partner-2 Marion Davies, is represented by3rd-from-Chandra (child-6) Rahu in bhava-12 in camouflaged Vrischika

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Vrizabha * dissociates from collections, incomplete acquisition, empty values , dissolute treasury, not limited by storage, disarrayed lineage, ignores restriction on speech-voice-sight, applies preservation containment to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * incoherent ideology, ambivalent toward the credenda; wandering worldview; absentee father-figures * no barriers in doctrine, disregards teachings, vacuous philosophy, irrelevance of the catechesis
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * sweetened surrender, gracious abandonment, vacuous feminine-figures, appreciation for fair terms of dissolution, disoriented negotiations, unconcerned with conventional beauty, empty contracts * arrangements according to impermanent agreement

Ketu-yuti-Zukra = disconnected imbalanced relationships

Not only Rahu in 8th-from-Surya but also Ketu-yuti-Zukra = once a huge financial kingpin, he lost nearly everything after 1936.

Labor strikebreaker * Zukra contracts; Ketu breaker


The Hearst family art collection is stored in their former home, Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California (no longer home, it is part of the California State Park System)
