BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.

Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Although apparently tame personalities, Nirriti are emotionally comfortable with extreme risk. Often they go enthusiastically where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a surprising ability to convince others to grant them power - sometimes, absolute power. Mula's perception features a mix of ambivalence and apathy not only toward others but toward oneself. Liberated from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born under auspice of nakshatrapathi

Alakmi-born preach their paradigm of belief without concern for material consequences. Thus freed from worry, they can be guided entirely by ideology with little-or-no pragmatic constraint.

Often involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti may be associated with shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having almost no fear of death, Mula engage in self-destructive behavior. Patriarchal sponsors and patronage may be essential to their success. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of religious preaching, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, ideological indoctrination, radical military, politics, and organized crime.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace , and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

"... 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."

Partner-1 for Chandra-2-nativity: Mao Zedong was first married in 1907 at his age 13.5 to a girl chosen by his family. According to custom, the young wife joined the household of her husband in service to his parents. While away for studies, Zedong was notified that the girl had died in 1910. His family conducted her funeral. Consistent with Chandra-2 marriages which tend to produce a camouflaged, masked spouse, this childless early marriage was "hidden" from his public record for many years.

According to Wikipedia, Mao had four wives and ten recognized children:

  1. Luo Yixiu (罗一秀, 20-Oct-1889 - 1910) of Shaoshan: married 1907 to 1910
  2. Yang Kaihui (杨开慧, 1901 - 1930) of Changsha: married 1921 to 1927, executed by the KMT in 1930; mother to Mao Anying, Mao Anqing, and Mao Anlong

Perpetually engaged in the imposition of his vision of social justice (uttama-Shani) through conformity to the lowest common denominator (Shani drishti to Guru) equality of men and women (Shani drishti to Surya-yuti-Chandra)

Four Marriages Shani lord of Zukra (wives) obtains the uttama-amza in SEVEN varga. Zedong was married four times, produced ten recognized children, and enjoyed countless liaisons

Engaged in a similar process of ideologically driven cultural restructuring and similarly following the dictum of Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx that 'religion is the opiate of the people' Mao Zedong was motivated to drive out religion from the land. substituting for the historic religious cults, Mao encouraged the cult of the Fatherland (Rahu-10) and a Cult of Personality based on his own visage as the Great Father. Thus Mao became a deity.

Personal tastes - Zukra-7

According to Mao Tse-tung (1893 - 1976) – his habits and his health

"Mao ... had countless mistresses and, like Chinese emperors of antiquity, believed that regular sex ensured a long life. As the established national leader, mistresses were supplied according to his wishes; during the chaos of the Cultural Revolution, he enjoyed 3 to 5 women simultaneously in his bed. Even when he had become incapable of sexual relations, he insisted on having young women around him. Although he was not blatantly bisexual, it is recorded that attractive young men were occasionally invited to satisfy him sexually. He had an undescended right testicle, suffered from various venereal diseases (including gonorrhea and genital herpes) and, by 1955, semen analysis showed him to be sterile. Fear of impotence, especially in times of stress, was a major worry."

dharmapathi Dharmesha-9 in 6th-from-9 uttama-Shani-4 = A strict and secretive Father

Mao Zedong's father Mao Yichang rose from the crippling poverty of his Hunan agricultural lineage to a position of considerable material wealth. According to" Mao Zedong's father served in the Chinese Army then "became a moneylender and grain merchant, buying up local grain and selling it in the city for a higher price, becoming one of the wealthiest farmers in Shaoshan, with 20 acres of land." Shani-4 land

Son learns from a Master Father Mao's father was a local grain speculator, who hoarded grain rurally waiting for a shortage, then carried his hoard to the city where it sold for a higher price. His father was also in the mani-mani-money-lending business (bhratrupathi-3 Surya-7 commercial deal-maker) .

As communist dictator, Mao Zedong arranged large-scale grain hoarding by the revolutionary forces in order to feed the party loyalists, while millions of peasants starved in their fields.

Simultaneously, whilst fueling a famine (Mangala-6), Mao illegalized peasant food-hoarding (Azlesa-Chandra-2) as a capital crime.
