Masculine Nativities

Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

BPL commentary:

For Uttarabhadrapada natives, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

Elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Guidance from the instructors of the civilizations of Andromeda.

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

"... 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."

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

A strong Kuja-9 placement generally indicates issues for the Father. Typically the father meets an early end, but other outcomes indicating a contentious or bullying father are also possible.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Makara * bureaucratic communications, articulation of orderly process
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy, community, friendship, interlinked systems

Papa-kartari yoga pinches Budha in vriddhi-bhava. Hemmed-in by progressive social networker Surya-Kumbha = social responsibility and leadership roles on one side, and by privilege-seeking priestly Rahu -Chandra (10)

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


  • Guru-Kanya * much ministry of service, many argumentations, much medication, exploitable beliefs
  • Guru in bhava-7 * many contracts, much negotiation, much partnership, abundant agreement, numerous alliances

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra = the kharesha

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-Meena * old dreams, pressured prayer, pressured feet, imposed sanctuary, must imagine guidance with scarce resources
  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity, contractual discipline, constrained harmony

From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, sober serious structured hierarchical Shani rules

  1. the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  2. the emotionally motivated information-delivering, evangelical, publishing, announcing, script-reading, reporting, conversational, process-managing communications of 3rd-from-Chandra

Radical Rahu-10 and Rahu-uttama in 10th navamsha + Budha * opportunistic wealth * a taboo-breaking (king-disrespecting) new nation (Budha bandesha-4 ) and new contractual-constitutional articulation (Budha) of rights-and-responsibilities * new contract between a governed people and their government

A New World Order would arise, with Washington the Free Mason (Chandra-Rahu) as its first leader.

During the American revolutionary war against colonial lord King George and Britain, Washington - a longtime British Army officer - switched sides and specialized in guerrilla fighting. Guerilla = a style of 'little guerre' that utilizes sneak attacks, taking secret positions, and relying on espionage to discover when the enemy British troops with their vastly superior armaments might have become vulnerable to surprise attack . A skilled occultist as well as a daring military general, Washington was a past master of the guerilla style.

Feminine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary:

For Mriga-sirasa 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 competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Orion.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa ladies tend to be physically fit, agile, energetic sportswomen and dancers. They are often found in politics, entertainment, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate markswomen, able to handle weapons if necessary. They often have an interest in metalcraft. Agrahayani ladies may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Pada 1-2 pursue gracious arrangements, match-making, and brokerage in secluded environments, such as the private bedroom or in distant lands. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships.

The Mithunaya pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are vocal socialites skilled in conflict intervention, and natural ministers of aid. Pada 3-4 may focus on community activism, economic profits, and service to the wounded (whether the wounds are physical, mental, or emotional).

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mriga-zirasa

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 91

"Usually this person is born in a wealthy family or at least well-to-do.

  • She will be brought up in a religious atmosphere

  • and will be deeply religious herself.

She is an entertaining and interesting speaker

  • and will participate in women's club activities

  • and other social enterprises .

If she adopts a public career , she will be successful and honored.

She is fond of beautiful clothes,

  • perfumes, and jewels,

  • and dresses elegantly and in good taste.

Her favorite color is green."

George Washington's Birthplace Memorial is a replica built in 1931 that is crafted from locally-made clay bricks. It was built to commemorate Washington's birth within grounds nearby.

Washington's original childhood home in the Virginia Colony of British America, on a slave-labor tobacco plantation, may have been built in a similar style then popular with the Planter Families of colonial British Virginia.
