BPL commentary:

high forehead. Most Punavasu nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers.

For Punarvasu natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guidance from the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81


"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.

In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


JeffersonThomas_Peale_1791.jpg

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Uttama-Surya-Azvini, Zukra-Krittika, and Rahu-Krittika all occupy Mangala's rashi in governance-kendra-10.

Surya in bhava-10 * dig-bala + uttama-Suryain Mesha * exposing one's life to the public eye; in Azvini, an inventor of new ideas


Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

lagnesha

  • Chandra in classroom-7 * comfort in agreement, bargaining, deal-making, contracts
  • Chandra-Makara-Draco * comforted by rhythmic hierarchical ordering
  • Chandra in Shravana * comforted by careful listening * protectors of undulating shamanic sound, customary lawfulness, structured parenting, reputable dwelling

Lagnesha familiar Chandra resides in 10th navamsha = Jefferson's lasting fame.

In radix, lagnesha Chandra-Sravana the listener in bhava-7 suggests expert diplomacy (7) due to emotional (Chandra) attunement to the balance of interests.

Chandra gains extraordinary strength.

  • Lagnesha Chandra in Shravana * a nakshatra ruled by Chandra * comforted by careful listening * protectors of undulating shamanic sound, customary lawfulness, structured parenting, reputable dwelling
  • Chandra casts drishti to swakshetra Karkata lagna .
  • Chandra-7 receives drishti of the yogakaraka nichha-bhanga Mangala-1
Marriage for Chandra-7

First life partner Martha Skelton was a highly visible person, represented by Thomas' bhava-1. Generally, Chandra-7 forecasts a devoted marriage partner who is strong identified with the union and with the native. Martha was a home-loving, decorating entertainer who supported Jefferson's career and managed their planation home (Chandra) with many slaves in the house and fields.

The second life partner, consistent with 2nd-from Chandra-7, was significantly different from the first. After Martha died, Thomas began an enduring but secret relationship with Martha's half-sister Sally which produced six children. Life partner-2 Sally Hemmings was almost completely camouflaged behind a veil of social restrictions (Shani) due to her African slave mother. Bhava-8 accepts drishti of oppressive Shani, expansive Guru, and physicalized, controlling nichha-Kuja. They could not marry legally, and Sally served no public roles.

As POTUS-05 from 1801 until 1809, Jefferson had substantial career need for gracious social entertainments to reinforce loyalties and repay favors. Yet, Sally was considered a taboo person and her presence at Southern white planter parties would have been outrageous. POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Madison, the wife of POTUS-04 James Madison, performed numerous required ceremonial entertaining roles for Jefferson 1801-1809.

Zukra-yuti-Rahu in D-1 and D-9

bhava-2 contains both yuvatipathi-7 + randhresha Shani in bhava-2 * Shani-Simha * resistance to royalty, repression of brilliance and hidden qualities to the second life union

rogesha-6 servitude exploitation + dharmesha-9 global humanism = Guru-Simha * expansion of intelligence, inclusive generosity of political will yet servitude and unbalanced contracts

Sally Hemmings was a 'quadroon' household slave and half-sister of Jefferson's first wife.

Recently gaining more credibility via genetic testing of the Hemmings line and historical research, after 250 years of suppression, there is more than anecdotal evidence that enslaved Sally Hemmings was Jefferson's common law wife and mother of six of his children.

Sally was 25 years younger than Jefferson's deceased wife Martha and Sally was the same age as Jefferson's elder daughter. Sally accompanied both Jefferson and his daughter to France during Jefferson's long diplomatic missions there. It is asserted that Sally and Jefferson's sexual relationship began in France and continued stateside, where Hemmings bore Jefferson six children.

It was customary for owners to free their household slaves in their final legal will. Dying indebted, Jefferson did not grant freedom to any of his slaves * except six individuals (his six children). However he never granted manumission to Sally. She died a slave.


Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Yogakaraka rules 5 + rules 10

Jefferson's powerful yogakaraka Mangala-1 caused his association with a military and political revolution for the new (Kuja) nation's independence, with metal implements in his surveying profession, and with frequent journeys by sea.

Jefferson would have needed physical, muscular, sexual and combative movements to accomplish all that history attests. The current rectification accounts nicely for this historical view of the man by placing nichha-Kuja in radical Karkata lagna.

Vidyapthi-5+karmesha-10 atmakaraka Kuja gets nichha-bhanga in the lagna, where Mangala in bhava-1 produces characteristics of physical courage (1), political, literary, charismatic, and dramatic energy (5) and dynamic institutional leadership (10).

Yogakaraka rules 5 + rules-10 Mangala-Karkata * Jefferson = a very active man and an agent for change with a philosophical, humanistic orientation. The social identity which marks his life's work is directly adversarial and enormously capable of risk (Rahu in rashi of Kuja) especially involving travel by sea.


Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha in bhava-9 * narrative of the father-figure, patronage, paradigm of belief, the guru, the professor, the doctrine, theory, 11th-from-11th profits
  • Budha-Meena * nichha * intuitive communications, articulation of meditative, imaginative spiritual guidance

Budha in bhava-9 * occupies the Karakamsha = global philosophy and priesthood of enlightened world culture


Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

rules Karakamsha bhava-9 ideology

  • Guru-Kanya * much ministry of service, many servants, many argumentations, much medication, exploitable beliefs, doctrine of humility
  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard, many songs-stories, many accumulated goods, numerous historical lineages and languages, many valuations
  • Guru-yuti-Shani atta-karaka * multiple elder-figures, abundant structure, many rules

Guru rules Punarvasu radical lagna

Punarvasu signals his lifelong engagement with higher education. Founder of the University of Virginia.

A notable polymath of his era, Punarvasu native Thomas Jefferson was spectacularly talented political philosopher, architect, writer, and statesman, inter alia.

However * typical of the 6/8 afflicted 4th pada of Punarvasu * some aspects of his human character and behavior, particularly his intimate relationships, are considered exploitive (6) and unusual to the point of overtly breaking social taboo of his day (8).

Among the political, legal, and financial leadership of his era, Mangala-driven young Jefferson was considered a bit of a loose cannon. His enthusiasm and vision were welcomed, but his larger-than-life and sometimes combative personality was often a liability. POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison noted Jefferson's propensity to tell "large stories" -- especially those which served to promote his polymath personality.


Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

bandesha-4 patriotism + Vriddhipathi-11 economic networks in leadership roles = Zukra-10 * Zukra-Meza -krittika


Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Simbha * old entitlements, old drama, pressured politics, must do ceremony with scarce resources
  • Shani in bhava-2 * must preserve, have to collect, catalog, tell tales, speak-and-sing; cautious banking; tense or punitive family, chronic financial depression + eye-teeth , heavy pressure against speaking out; insufficient nourishment, desiccated preserved food
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * resistance against expansion, doctrinal discipline, constrained growth

yuvatipathi-7 career advising counseling+ randhresha-8 revolution hidden forces, new identities = Shani in bhava-2 resistance to privileged lineages * Shani-Simha = resistance to royalty,


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

  • Rahu-Meza * mask of competitive, urgent force
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * privilege via glamorous or unusual iconic, symbolic, representational, government, leadership, rank; seeks high social visibility
  • Surya-yuti-Rahu * amplified ambition, magnified confidence, exotic creativity, tricky drama, opportunistic father, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of political genius
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * amplified attractions, exotic art-music, tricky sweets

Rahu in bhava-10 = dramatic rise to leadership roles, under taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances. Often a glass-ceiling crasher, able to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles. May challenge conventional standards in the style of ascendancy to the high ranking institutional governance positions.


Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu in classroom-4 * disregards local customs, property boundaries, absent from home
  • Ketu-Thula * incomplete alliance, empty trades, negotiations

Ketu in Bhava-4 if Professor Rahu occupies 10, the native is rarely at home due to Rahu-related ambitions for high visibility social privilege. For periods of time in mid-life, Jefferson was gone from home for years at a time due to his diplomatic and governance assignments.
