BPL commentary:

For Pushya nativities, nativities, the condition of Professor Shani may considerably affect the outcome

"Distinctly the club-woman type is found here.

She is well-read, cultured and active in all community and social affairs.

In her home she entertains and is fond of indoor games, bridge parties and social gatherings

  • at which she is a charming and capable hostess.

  • She will have her own money or her husband will be generous in his allowances to her

and she will spend much of it on church and club activities

  • and with charitable organizations.

If she cares to adopt some public career,

  • she will become very well known ."

Distinctive features of the nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

From Chandra-Makara-Draco lagna, the mature voice of sober serious structured hierarchical Professor Shani rules

  • the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  • the emotional authenticity of in-the-body feelings represented by sensitive, receptive, absorptive Chandrana

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka



  1. Surya kutumbhapathi (family) parivartamsha Mangala karmapathi-10 Arudha lagna
  2. Chandra-7 in 10th-from-10th parivartamsha Shani-1
  3. ruler of 10th navamsha Zukra parivartamsha Guru * but Guru shad-ashtakya 6/8 Zukra AND Zukra-yuti-Rahu-6

Rahu-6 and Rahu shad-ashtakya 6/8 Shani-1

Raja Yoga = drishti of Yogakaraka Vidyapthi-5+karmesha-10 Mangala AND drishti of dharmesha-9 Guru upon bhava-5 Vrizchika politics-drama * AND bhava-5 contains rajakaraka Surya-Budha


She enjoyed a steady and capable diplomatic sensitivity for deal-making via Chandra in Shravana-7 * comforted by careful listening * protectors of undulating shamanic sound, customary lawfulness, structured parenting, reputable dwelling

Intuitive, parental Chandra parivartamsha yoga with lawful-governance Professor Shani-1 grants extraordinary longevity in behaviors of endless bargaining and negotiation of alliances.

Makara-Chandra-7 in 10th-from-10th lagnesha * parivartamsha * yuvatipathi-7 Shani-1 = very structured, legalistic capability to make alignments, arrangements, deals, bargains.

RAHU-6 * Zukra-yuti-Rahu-6

Rahu-6 yuti Zukra enemies * also 6th-from-Chandra enemies = bhava-12 invisible. Many "frenemies" exacerbated by Mandi and Gulika in bhava-11

Even in the most adversarial and accusatory environments (Rahu-6) where people feel that they have nothing in common (huge caste differences) still she is capable of imposing a common law upon all . She symbolizes both Mother (Chandra) and the Law (Shani).

Exceptionally empowered Rahu-6 yuti Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra ruler of 10th navamsha and Zukra parivartamsha rogesha-6 Guru. She displayed a stunningly relentless ability to reinstate her power during incessant eruptions of conflict, toxic corruption, jealousy, anger, and greed in her homeland.

She was accused of massive financial corruption, violent suppression of minorities, and shocking bureaucratic incompetence.

She was loved by many within the great masses of ostracized, impoverished, illiterate, underemployed, and disenfranchised peoples of India.

The less educated classes had a sort of tantric or death-goddess impression of her (Durga) which appealed successfully to their understanding of power.

The educated classes debated her emotional vulnerability to aggressive political and financial interests and dynasty entitlements (Mangala-2 parivartamsha Surya-5)

She was abundantly hated by her political adversaries, holders of established wealth, conservative financial interests, minority independence movements, and those who deeply resented The Emergency as a travesty of democracy.

Her primary legacy may indeed be her harsh political tactic of "martial law" in extremely turbulent times . via Yogakaraka Simha-Mangala parivartamsha Surya-5.

rogesha-6 Guru in 6th-from-6th bhava-11 while in parivartamsha with Zukra-6 is a super complicated marketplace situation in which the losses barely outweigh the gains. After all of the measures and initiatives India was only marginally more sustaining than before her reign. Opportunities for extravagant financial corruption in direct proportion to the ideological (Guru dharmesha-9 ) passion for social reform largely ensure that no meaningful improvements could be built due to the massive scale of the briberies (Rahu-6).

Indira Gandhi remains a highly controversial figure in Bharati politics.


India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru. Their familial, political, and professional relationship bond was extremely strong.

Mrs. Gandhi's radical lagna pada-3 pushya matches her father's Chandra at pada-3 pushya; Mrs. Gandhi's Chandra-Shravana-3 matches her father's Shravana-3 radical lagna

9th-from-Chandra bhava-3 Kanya maternal grandfather. Ruler of 9th-from-Chandra is Budha-5 politics yuti pitrikaraka Surya.

Budha in Vrizchika yuti Surya-Vrizchika

Chandra-Makara-Draco * comforted by rhythmic hierarchical ordering

* Chandra in Shravana nakshatra pada-3



Zukra - Dhanuzya* Zukra-yuti-Rahu-6




Arudha lagna bhava-10 Mesha * governance, executive order, law

Karakamsha bhava-4 Thula * ethnicity, homeland, patriotism, defense

MANGALA * Parivartamsha Mangala-2-Simha with Surya-Vrischika-5

Politics always has an undertow of extreme physical danger Kuja-2 and in the end politics is fatally violent. Psychological Control fixation in politics.

Mangala drishti to bhava-8 while Mangala occupies the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra * death by bullet.

SHANI * randhresha-8 Azlesa Shani-Karkata lagna * Parivartamsha Shani-1-Karkata with Chandra-Makara-7

Separation from spouse due to professional duties

Association with revolutionary change and lawful cycles of oppressive force


Budha, an adolescent, absorptive graha, get irritated and angry by drishti from bantering Budha's natural enemy the reactive, war-like Kuja.Budha - mental and communications control. Extreme aggressions during Budha-Budha swabhukti (Operation Blue Star.)

Vrizchika Budha-5 receives drishti of His ruler imperious Mangala-Simha providing a tendency toward regal commanding and a habit of issuing mandates rather than engaging in conversation.

Mrs. Gandhi was famous for her one-way communications, which offered no opportunity for response or exchange. Her habit of writing terse, instruction-delivery letters to her father, husband, and sons, later also daughters-in-law, may have been her way of buffering the impact of her Mangala-driven aggressiveness.

More likely, it was her way of producing maximum effect while reducing the delays and inefficiencies of questioning and debate. Genuine conversation with people who do not share one's viewpoint is notably inefficient.

BPHS Chapter 12, shloka 3-4

".. in Lagna .. a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance."

"There will not be bodily health... if Lagna, or Chandra be drishtied by, or yuti with a malefic, being devoid of a benefics Drishti."

Behari commentary upon Chandra-Makara "You are vulnerable to manipulation by the opposite sex, for you are easily controlled by those whom you desire ."
