During Guru Mahadasha, Welch presided over GE's international expansion from domestic manufacturing and research to global finance agent, during which time a majority of GE's income was camouflaged (8) from US govt taxation. This treasury was hidden due to much of it having global origin (Guru global) but also due to the legal manipulations of the US tax code effected by the shrewd corporate lawyers empowered via Welch's Guru-7 (lawcourts) Parivartamsha yoga Mangala-8 (obscuration, hiding, confidential information, secret treasuries)

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

An only child, Welch was born with a Zukra-ruled Chandra ensuring that he was experience the first years of life in the family's center-of-attention . Welch's lagnesha Zukra also rules 10th-from-Chandra, suggesting that his mother Chandra needed (Chandra need) to promote her son to high levels of social recognition.

In 2006 during Shani-Zukra period, Welch married for the third time (Zukra weddings) and established an MBA graduate program at a local university. The program was named for him (Zukra lagnesha) and funded by him (Zukra dhanakaraka) albeit housed within the local institution.

Zukra = nichha ruler of 1 and 6, would suggest some ensuing concerns with lack of equity, contracts, and values. Twelve years after its founding, this MBA diploma is reported to lack recognition as a value-for-price investment. Despite the expected prestige of the Jack Welch name, the diploma is not yet highly valued by students or employers. Lagnesha (name personality) nichha-Zukra and Zukra rogesha (unfair bargains) may be a factor in lowered value.

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 "
