  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 85

BPL commentary: For Uttarabhadrapada natives, the disposition of Professor Shani considerably affects the outcome.

"...most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Jack Welch with lifepartner-3, Suzy Wetlauer Welch

Surya * pitrikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Marriage described via partnership for Chandra-6

marriage-1 partner = bhava-12 Kumbha, first alliance to a quiet homemaker, a socially invisible personality (12). Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra signifying an enduring, responsible, but often separated first union.

marriage-2 partner = bhava-7 Kanya, second alliance to an attorney (7). Zukra-7 indicates that Welch's second life-partner specialized professionally in corporate finance. Nichha-Zukra suggests that the marriage contract could be dishonored.

marriage-3 = bhava-2 Meza, third alliance to one engaged in values, treasury, and collections

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka atmakaraka Kuja rules 2-treasuries + 9-paradigm of belief

During Mahadasha of Mangala, Rahu, and Guru, Jack Welch presided over GE's international expansion from domestic manufacturing and research to global finance agent. Kuja-yuti-Rahu and Kuja rules 2-assets + 9 internationalism.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha rules swamsha

Budha-8 rules 4-domestic 7-lawcourts, attorneys. Much 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 Zukra-7 (lawcourts) ++ Zukra Parivartamsha yoga Budha-8 (obscuration, hiding, confidential information, secret treasuries)

"Neutron Jack" famed for aggressively transformative capitalism, reign of terror via sudden mass firing of workers, and magnificent financial gains of the management elite from tax camouflage (8)

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru lagnesha karmesha.

Guru rules glamorous, celebrity 5th-from-Chandra

Guru suffers moudhya-dosha within 6 degrees of burning Surya

General Electric CEO 1935- Jack Welch * GE was the world's largest corporation during his chairmanship

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra rules 10th-from-Chandra = Vrizabha bhava-3 commerce, finance

An only child, Welch was born with a Zukra-ruled Chandra-Purvaphalguni ensuring that he would have a lifelong taste for luxury and beauty.

In 2006 following retirement from General Electric, during Shani-Zukra period, Welch established a for-profit online MBA which is itself a commercial business Zukra rules-3 commerce and internet. Zukra also rules 8-rejuvenation, transformed identity.

For Meena lagna, Zukra is the often problematic ruler of bhava-8 and 8th-from-8th (3). Zukra nichha suggests persistent issues with women, and repeating patterns of disagreement in matters of equity, contracts, and values.

As a child during Zukra mahadasha, Welch (who later became an inspirational and commanding speaker) was plagued by a stutter. 2nd-from-Chandra = nichha-Zukra in kendra-7 - early weakness can improve

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

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

  • Rahu-Dhanuzya * mask of global humanism
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * privilege via glamorous or unusual iconic, symbolic, representational, government, leadership, rank; seeks high social visibility
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * * amplified competition, tricky innovation

is the ultimate competitive advantage ."

~~ Jack Welch

I was a gardener providing water and other nourishment to our top 750 people.

Of course, I had to pull out some weeds, too."

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 "
