  • QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

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.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Delphinus

"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 emotional support partnership

Marriage described via partnership for Chandra-7

  1. marriage-1 partner = bhava-7 Kumbha = first alliance to a quiet homemaker and parent (Chandra-7 seeks a parenting partner). A dedicated supporter of the native's personality and identity. Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra signifying an enduring, responsible, but often separated first marital union.
  2. marriage-2 partner = bhava-8- Kanya = second alliance Budha-9 Parivartamsha Zukra-8 adds power to second marriage. Zukra-8 is also a yogakaraka. The divorce was extremely contentious but during the more harmonious years of the marriage, many financial (Zukra) empowerments occurred. Nichha-Zukra suggests that the marriage contract could be dishonored.
  3. marriage-3 = bhava-3 Meza, third alliance to one engaged in business, writing, publications. Partner-3 = business journalist. Mangala-11 Parivartamsha Guru-10 suggests a high social profile and profitability

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha rules 5 + 8

Budha rules dhanayoga-making 2nd-from-Chandra + the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically fruitful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Budha rules 8-identity transformation

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

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

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Yogakaraka rules 4 + 9

Zukra rules career the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = Vrizabha bhava-4 + the emotionally motivated evangelical communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra =Thula-9

Zukra rules Chandra-Purvaphalguni


  • Zukra-8 * pleasure of occult secrets, enjoys rejuvenating, camouflaged, hidden equity, appreciation of catastrophic change
  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, pleasures of medication, aesthetic of remedies for injustice
  • Zukra-8 Parivartamsha Budha-9

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

during Shani-Zukra period in 2006 following retirement from General Electric, , Welch established a for-profit online MBA which expresses the educational pattern of Zukra ruler of 4-9 from lagna + commercial 3-10 from Chandra.

Zukra nichha suggests persistent issues with women, and repeating patterns of disagreement in matters of equity, contracts, and values. Broken contracts.

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. Yogakaraka will later bring benefits.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani in Bhava-1 * must act under pressure, move but slowly, push forward against resistance; cautious, conventional identity; chronic impeded movement
  • Shani-Kumbha * moolatrikona 0-20 deg * old economies, pressured linkage, pressured skin-nerves, imposed connections, must earn profits with scarce resources

Shani rules emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra + relationship-harmonizing 7th-from-Chandra

General Electric CEO 1935- Jack Welch was too rational and scientifically complex in his early group communication style. He had to amplify and excite his style of making announcements, develop teams, and learn how to run a business meeting.

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

  • Rahu-Dhanuzya * mask of global humanistic belief; fascinated by doctrine, theory, patronage, fatherliness
  • Rahu in bhava-11 * privilege via glamorous or unusual social goals and economic attainments; seeks a special, important, linkage role in social participation and financial networks. Opportunistic, ambitious friends. Thrives in culturally-mixed commodity-exchange systems. Bhava-11 profits, revenue, connections = a highly successful environment for boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu.
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * * amplified competition, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors

Welch's 2018 net worth was estimated at USD_750million

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * incomplete message, empty conversation, dissolute signals
  • Ketu in classroom-5 * ambivalent toward entitlements, absentee children, disregards political boundaries, dissolves the game, disperses

Welch was famously disinterested in his children. It was reported that he returned home so rarely from corporate life that his kids asked their mother, "Who is that guy?"

Also, bandhesha-4 Zukra-nichha occupies bhava-8, suggesting homeroots often dislodged by the ongoing cycles of identity-change (8).


"An organization's ability to learn,

and translate that learning into action rapidly,

is the ultimate competitive advantage ."

~~ Jack Welch

"My main job was developing talent.

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

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

~~ Jack Welch

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 "
