BPL commentary: For Mula nativities, the condition of limitless Professor Ketu considerably affects the outcome. Spirit guides, astral beings, and inner listening may be especially influential.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

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


William Randolph Hearst in the 1940's


Millicent Hearst in 1916


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Surya rules Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

Hearst's father, a gold, silver, and timber speculator had become a winner-takes-all plutocrat. The Political, charismatic, speculative Father became a single-term USA Senator 1886-1891.

Father uttama-Surya-5 ** Budha-yuti-Surya and Budha rules career 7-10

uttama- Surya * a selfish, super-competitive, confident "glory-hunter" father; Budha-5 parivartamsha Mangala-7 shows the mining interests which massive profits propelled his father's political career.

Hearst inherited a massive financial estate from his father including gold mines, huge timber acreage, and palatial ranchland. His father was a USA-Senator, who also bequeathed a hidden wealth of political connections to his son.

8th-from-Surya = inheritance from father = Rahu in bhava-12

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Guru-yuti-Chandra connotes physical body size. 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.



Mula native with Kanya-10 Shani-Guru-Chandra = critic of government and its agents, promoter of conflict and exploitation

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. USA national and Congressional resistance to

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.

Kanya-10 prevents Hearst's elected political career

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. A large and influential cluster of Chandra-Shani-Guru located in his bhava-10 in 6th-from-5th effectively prevented his direct election to political roles; however he retained and indeed amplified his hidden influence via his power to deploy money and connections.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Career empowerment: Kuja rules 5-12 exchange Budha rules 7-10

Mangala occupies 10th-from-Chandra

Ruler-of-12 = Mangala bhava-7 = competitive, self-determined, vigorous partner who may become an agent of disharmony due to ruler of 6th-from-7th in 7. However, Kuja also rules the powerfully gainful 11th-from-7th and even in Kuja's capacity as ruler of the maritally-upsetting 6th-from-7th Mangala is also ruling Rahu-12. Wife-1 enjoyed a great deal of hidden power in the marriage, and she was an important agent of Hearst's continued economic gainfulness.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha-5 rules Karakamsha Kanya-10

1937 onset of the crushing debt which ended his professional career due to pressure from bankers * Budha-Budha swabhukti * Budha gives effect of lagnesha-1 2 Mangala and Budha activates Guru.. Guru's expansive drishti upon his Ketu-Zukra greatly exacerbated his debts following the Great Depression.

However the post-Depression transition was mainly from active wealth of the Shani Mahadasha (Shani rules 2 and 2nd-from-2nd) into passive wealth of the Budha Mahadasha (Budha continues to rule Shani, and Budha continues to enjoy the Mangala parivartamsha).

Despite the banks taking executive control of his failed businesses, Hearst's lifestyle of ostentatious luxury and autocratic decision-making continued to the end of his life.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Brihaspati rules Dhanuzya razi

Guru owns 4, Guru owns 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

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra-Vrizabha 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

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

  • Rahu-Vrizchika * mask of undisclosed mystery
  • Rahu in bhava-12 * glamorous retirement, retreat, withdrawal, sanctuary; seeks privilege via private guidance, imagination, enclosure

Rahu-12 Passions for matters of foreign lands

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 by 3rd-from-Chandra (child-6) Rahu in bhava-12 in camouflaged Vrischika

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu-yuti-Zukra = disconnected imbalanced relationships

Ketu rules Mula nakshatra *** once a huge financial kingpin, he lost nearly everything after 1936.

Labor "strikebreaker" * Zukra-6 labor contracts; Ketu breaker

Mula disregard for Established Rhythms and Social Order

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 "yellow journalism" told lies and fabricated stories to suit his whims and drum up sales.

The movie "Citizen Kane" is based on Hearst's entitled life.Hearst maintained the facade of public dignity of his first marriage to a socialite Mate who was active in community service (Zukra rules 11). However, the majority of his romantic life 1915-1951 was spent in union with an actress Marion Davies, who bore his sixth child, a hidden daughter. Zukra-yuti-Ketu


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)
