Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu

BPL commentary:

For Dhaniztha natives, 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 competitors may be especially influential.

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).

Marriage for Chandra-3

As of 2010, Mr. Limbaugh had undertaken four marriages. Unique factors in the nativity would suggest a multiplicity of marriages, including Mangala yuti Zukra-1 and Mangala-Kanya in swamsha which combine to create an aggressive personality with a significant Kuja Dosha

For spousal companions, Mr. Limbaugh has shown a pattern, spanning four marriages, of selecting young, attractive, and personable mates with strong social skills. They have been a customer service clerk, a sales agent, an exercise instructor, and a party-planner.

  • union-1 = bhava-9 Kanya customer service clerk
  • union-2 = bhava-4 Mesha student, sales agent (Kuja drishti into 4)
  • union-3 = bhava-11 Vrischika exercise instructor (Shani drisht into 11)
  • union-4 = bhava-6 Mithunaya party-planner (Surya + Budha + Rahu + Guru drishtii into 6)

  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant confidence, message of willpower and charisma

Budha the Messenger rules swamsha + Budha rules Mithunaya 10th navamsha

Rahu + Budha in Mithunaya 10th navamsha signifies an ambitious, opportunistic career in messaging to a mixed (Rahu) audience (Mithunaya). Limbaugh participates in radio, book publishing, and political conference appearances. As commentators note, Limbaugh does not "have" a marketing brand; rather, he "is" a brand. His primary source of income is sale of advertising (Budha) on his radio programs and honoraria for public appearances.

evangelical messaging-karaka Budha owns and sends drishti into the Mithunaya-6 contentious (6) communication.

bhava-1 Mithunaya personality receives drishti from Rahu + Guru + Surya + Budha-lagnesha

10th navamsha Mithunaya contains * Rahu-yuti-Budha * ambitious communications

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard, many songs-stories, many accumulated goods, numerous historical lineages and languages, many valuations
  • Guru-Kumbha * much networking, many communities, scientific beliefs, doctrine of economic linkage
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu mizra-karaka * multiple mix-master figures, abundant opportunity for ambitions

Guru-yuti-Rahu seeks a glamorous (Rahu) and friendly (Kumbha) environment.

Shani-Guru period * Guru rules-3 radio + Guru rules 12th-from-4th dissolution of schooling

  • According to wikipedia "... he enrolled in Southeast Missouri State University but left the school after two semesters and one summer. According to his mother, "he flunked everything", and "he just didn't seem interested in anything except radio."

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka


  • Zukra-Makara * appreciation of social status, pleasures of structure, hierarchical arrangements
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; enjoys athletic, vigorous physical equity, appreciation of new birth * identified with partnership
  • Zukra-yuti-Mangala * gracious action, energized beauty, sweetly proactive innovation

Zukra yogakaraka located in the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically fruitful, revenue-regulating, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

The four-times-married Dittoheads 1951- radio polemic Rush Limbaugh was quoted by the Palm Beach Post, saying that marriage is difficult for him because "I'm too much in love with myself."

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Kanya * old accusations, pressured colon, imposed servitude, must do service ministry with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-9 * must preach the old doctrine, old paradigms of belief; cautious, conventional father-figures; chronic rigidity of worldview

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

  • Rahu-Kumbha * mask of lawfully interlinked systems
  • Rahu in bhava-2 * privilege via glamorous or unusual assets, family lineage, languages, sounds, knowledge, treasury. Seeks a special, important, acquisitive role in conservation and containment of historic values. Opportunistic, ambitious family of origin.
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu * amplified generosity, exotic beliefs, tricky teachings, opportunistic preachers

Bhava-2 capital wealth

Guru-yuti-Rahu occupies the stealthy, emotionally unaccountable, invisible 12th-from-Chandra

Guru-yuti-Rahu send drishti into 6-8-10

6-Mithunaya-communications receives drishti of Surya + Budha + Rahu + Guru = legendary willingness to attack the personal character of citizens with whose political stance (Surya)he disagrees Rahu breaks the civilized taboo on ad hominem attacks.

Rahu-Kumbha = expedient use of networks, economies and communities

Guru-expands Rahu's ambition for speech, voice, story-telling.

Rahu = Polarizing Speech

In these final days of harvest, Rahu the Provocateur is at His most useful. While obsessively and gleefully breaking the system rules, Rahu generally succeeds in obtaining higher privileges via His provocative, roguish actions. Professor Rahu typically demonstrates a powerful ascent to higher unearned rank followed by a perilous fall.

Kumbha = social economy. Mr. Limbaugh is blessed with a remarkable ability to amplify Guru-yuti-Rahu the marketplace discourse (Kumbha) of an increasingly pluralistic (Guru) American social economy (Kumbha). His taboo-breaking, acutely polarizing (Rahu) discourse emphasizes boundary tensions (Rahu) in race, class, and gender relations within the greater society. The tension produced is psychically important because it causes the audience to make more clear choices.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka


  • Ketu-Singha * incomplete entitlement, empty intelligence, dissolute brilliance
  • Ketu in classroom-8 * well-placed * ambivalent toward initiations, disregards occult boundaries, absent from coverage (increases transparency), vacuous secrets, irrelevance of non-disclosure
