BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poetic romantics, and game-players may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Distinctive features of the Nativity


POTUS-06 American System John Quincy Adams ; in 1843

(in 1848, he collapsed on the Senate floor and died )

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka


JQ's father was a USA "Founding Father", POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams.

Surya-yuti-Shani-10 shows JQ Adams' duplication of his father's identity with governance responsibility (Shani).

Surya-10 shows his Willpower (Surya) to undertake his father's same burden (Shani) of dealing with leadership roles under very heavy pressure in a hostile political environment.

Surya-yuti-Shani* Shani-Mithunaya yuti Surya-Mithunaya * writings, reports, teamwork, meetings, documents, travel itineraries, messaging, publications, commercial business within the context of government (10)

Professionalized Relationship to father * pitrikaraka Surya-yuti-Shani-10

Even as a young boy, JQ attended his father across Europe as a diplomatic scribe, then an independent diplomat, the into the USA presidency. He carried on his father's engagement with foreign lands (Surya rules 12) .

JQ continued his father's commitment to holding top-level roles in national governance of the unstable new nation (Shani-10). He shared his father's lifelong work (Shani) in politics (5) . For better or for worse, JQ also perpetuated his father's pattern of conflicted relationships and bitter resentments(Shani rules 6 animosity).

JQ did understand the crucial role of international diplomacy for the survival of the foundling nation and most of his colleagues respected his global knowledge (Surya-10 rules 12). However his political career was made miserable by enemies (Shani rules 6) who accused him of impoverishing (6) the nation by preventing farmers from using slave labor.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka


Mom was the estimable POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams . Mrs. Adams was a superb writer on topics of political philosophy. She is honored as a "Founding Father" due to her pervasive literary influence upon the thought and action of the ruling male cohort.

JQ received a similar formal education to that of his father, and both of his parents provided explicit support for his schooling. Chandra-4 in 7th-from-Surya shows the mutuality of his parents John and Abigail Adams.

Supportive, Grounding Mother

Abigail Adams did not enjoy the southern social style of political entertainments in Washington D.C. Yet during her son's presidential administration, when wife Louisa Adams was too weak to carry out social duties, J-Q's mother POTUS-02 partner Abigail Adams traveled to the capital, and directed all of the necessary formal entertaining.

Parents as a Team * Chandra-4 patriotism, life foundations

Chandra-4 represents his patriotic parents. Mom and Dad both hailed from Puritan New England Calvinist roots. In their local area, their values and lifestyle would have been familiar and normal. Guru drishti into bhava-4 indicates that they owned houses and a farm.

Surya-yuti-Shani drishti into bhava-4 suggests that their personalities were considered outspoken (Rahu in 2nd-from-Chandra) When the Adams Family needed to cooperate within the morally lax southern-dominated leadership cohort, they were considered as rigidly (Shani) puritanically Northern. JQ carried forward his parents' Puritan moral foundational (4) principles (Dhanuzya) expressed via a vigorous anti-slavery platform.


Due to Chandra-4 Adams loved his homeland USA. During his entire life, he worked to defend and support the philosophical principles (9) of the fledgling nation. bandesha-4 Guru in 9th-from-4th.

Puritan Ideology and no-compromise anti-slavery morality

JQ Adams was raised by both parents and grandparents as a fervent moral abolitionist (anti-slavery). JQ and his family were absolute anti-slavery proponents who could not admit any argument in favor of slavery. Shani-mutual drishti- Chandra rigidity.

His southern governance colleagues complained (Shani-10 rules 6 complaints) that JQ did not understand the financial realities of the southern region's slave-driven large-plantation economy.

JQ's family owned a farm, but otherwise they had a minimal amount of material wealth. They were focused on laying the ideological foundations for the baby nation (Chandra-Dhanuzya-4). JQ 's response to those who asserted that slaves were essential to good business was to retort that no reason could EVER justify slavery. His northern moralism angered and alienated many of his southern fellows but he would not change (Shani) this stalwart refusal.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

7th-from-Chandra = Surya-yuti-Shani = wife is dedicated to duty and father

nichha-Kuja + lagnesha Budha + Ketu in the catastrophic-transformative 8th-from-Chandra = never satisfied

Despite tensions due to JQ's complaining nature, Louisa's Chandra-Mithunaya occupies JQ's 7th-from-Chandra, indicating the stability of the emotional bond. JQ would have been a rather testy fellow given the Karkata graha, and Louisa would have needed to develop some strategies for minimizing his impact -- including frail health.

Louisa remained dedicated to her troubled father Zukra ruled by Surya-yuti-Shani-10. Although she was not a socialite by nature, Louisa acquitted her social duties admirably, using her musical talents. She raised their children in daunting circumstances. Yet she often felt ill, both mentally and physically. JQ's 7th-from-Chandra contains Surya rules 12, Shani rules 6, and Shani rules 8th-from-10th, showing the wife's sickness, retreating nature, and discomfort with public roles. Her delicate health and retiring personality made her frail and withdrawn.

Difficulties persisted in the marriage, and JQ's complaining increased as he aged. Yet Shani in 7th-from-Chandra predicts loyalty to the vow. She never completely abdicated, always lived with her husband and not separately, and when she outlived JQ she did not remarry.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Kuja is often problematic for the Kanya nativity

Kuja-11 occupies the emotionally catastrophic-transformative, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

Kuja rules 3-cohort. JQ endured a lifetime of polarizing catalysis from his same-age adversary, POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson

Bhava-11 = 2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra = wife's family.

JQ's problems with his wife's family are legendary. His wife's father was a financial speculator whose misjudgment put him in severe debt. Her family had various mental and physical illnesses, which JQ had to deal with.

nichha-Kuja casts drishti into 3-commerce, 5-politics, and 6-disagreement

Kuja rules 3 producing an endless stream of meetings, administrative details, and literary correspondence (3) and hostility of a vulgar and obstructionist Congress (3-congress).

nichha-Mangala owns and aspects bhava-3. Contentious promotions. 4 = 6th-from-11

JQ promoted (Kuja yuti Budha promotion) the manufacturing (3) culture of his native northern region. His writings appealed to the freeholding northern manufacturing and small-farming base.

However the southern slave-dependent planters (4) hated him, such as POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson.

Secrecy and danger in governance roles

Mangala rules Shani in 10th-navamsha, suggesting that JQ's lifetime career in government service would be characterized by the secrecy of Vrischika and the emotionalized contentiousness of nichha-Mangala

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka


  • Budha-Karkata * articulation of root culture, customs, security
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy, community, interlinked systems
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * articulation of forward action, message of innovation and forward movement
  • Budha-yuti-Ketu * articulation of surrender and abandonment, message of the observing Witness

Budha occupies the emotionally catastrophic-transformative 8th-from-Chandra

After nearly two decades as a successful diplomat in the gracious salons of Europe during Guru Mahadasha, JQ was convinced that the economic conflicts between the two regions could be resolved diplomatically.

But he was handicapped when dealing with issues of economics and market systems by the misapprehension and miscommunication Budha-yuti-Ketu-11 compounded by the angry resentment of nichha-Kuja-11. The core issue remained his inability to compromise (nichha-Kuja) because he refused to accept that slavery was an essential and irreplaceable component of the American economy. However the majority of Congress and the USA leadership were planters who vigorously asserted the opposite. JQ had very few friends (11) and was often verbally attacked.

JQ had moments of violent anger (Kuja), moments of logical clarity (Budha lagnesha, karmesha), and moments of utter apathy (Ketu) during the vicious debates on slavery that plagued his career.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra-yuti-Guru in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

Guru-12 rules 4 and 7. Guru rules Chandra-Uttara-azadha-Dhanuzya-4 foundational principles, philosophy of belief

Guru owns 10th-from-10th and Chandra-4 drishti to 10. JQ's beliefs especially his social and political philosophy were highly politicized due to Guru-Simha. Like his father before him, JQ Adams wanted the United States of America to be anchored in principles of legal justice, including a concept of human rights which precluded the possibility that humans could be categorized as property.

Success abroad Guru-12 * Guru Mahadasha age 40-56

John Quincy Adams generally liked his career during his Guru Mahadasha when Guru-12 as kept him traveling in Europe under cover of 12-invisibility with access to scholarly resources of universities as well as a culture of global humanism.

Typical of Guru-12, JQ experience wide success in representing these American principles abroad (12). The first half of his adult career was spent in various European embassy houses, entertaining the thought leaders and entrepreneurs of progressive viewpoint. His Enlightenment philosophical convictions were met in foreign settings with much favor. However once he returned to USA to take elected positions in Congress and POTUS, the visionary inclusivity of Guru-12 faced harsh realities of Shani.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra-Simha-12 rules 2- Kutumba * Zukra-yuti-Guru-12

JQ Adams hailed from the infamous "Adams Family" which produced a remarkable mix of guiding ideologues and legislators, inspirational and influential national leaders, along with physical and mentally ill and addicted persons, self-destructive alcoholics and suicides (12)

John Quincy Adams endured many problems with his 'dynasty' family kutumbha bhava-2 including crippling alcohol addiction (Zukra) and suicides (12). Two of JQ Adams' sons died before age 30 of alcoholism and depression. 5th-from-Chandra = bhava-8 representing the children is ruled by the notorious nichha-Kuja-Budha-Ketu. Adams expressed little sympathy toward their suffering (Ketu) seeing these traits not as emotional wounds but rather as moral failings.

JQ Adams privately (Zukra-12 privacy) expressed (2-speech) frustration and even contempt toward his wife's invisible ailments and the sickness of his family members. He considered himself unable to aid their distress, as he was too busy with public matters.

circumstances of meeting the wife-figure

are cloaked in invisibility, foreign lands, private arrangements, dreams, imaginative visions = Zukra-yuti-Guru in bhava-12

JQ was introduced to his wife POTUS-pair-06 Louisa Adams in London (Zukra-12 distant lands), where JQ was working as a diplomat crafting often undisclosed agreements, on behalf of the new USA.

JQ believed that Louisa was as the daughter of a prosperous London merchant father. Louisa's father was supposedly an émigré American living in London whose wealth and social connections would offer a considerable advantage to JQ'ss international career. Being of marriageable age, Louisa appeared at several parties and JQ (without checking his facts - 12 prefers imaginative insights) decided to take the opportunity of her availability. He asked for her hand in marriage. The offer was instantly accepted.

Unfortunately, the blurry dreamlike impressions of 12 were soon clarified. Louisa's father had been on a downward slide in business for some time. Dad was not a financially privileged man nor much well-liked. (Later historians have opined that he may have suffered a personality disorder which involved lying.).

Adams Family afflicted by Zukra

kutumbha bhava-2: ruled by Zukra-12 shows the destructive alcohol addiction and ailments of family members including the addicted and destructive lapsed-preacher uncle (brother of his mother Abigail Adams) plus the two alcoholic short-lived and near-criminal brothers of John Quincy Adams, plus his sister with severe marital, health, and financial issues; and finally his own two alcoholic, suicidal sons.

Zukra's ruler is pitrikaraka Surya-10 indicating that the father's intelligence Surya may be afflicted by Zukra-12 dreamlike environment. JQ's father POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government John Adams apparently misunderstood (Ketu-Budha) Louisa's father to be a rich businessman. Louisa's father was in fact an impoverished London merchant whose speculative investments in American enterprises had failed.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Mithunaya * old messages, old conversations, must signal with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-10 * must govern the old order; cautious, conventional leadership roles; chronic weighty social duties
  • Shani-yuti-Surya * resistance against creativity, disciplined intelligence, constrained willpower

Shani drishti into 10th-from-10th. Shani resides in both radical-10 and 10th-navamsha. Shani confirms a lifetime career in responsible government authority roles.

From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, the mature voice of sober serious structured hierarchical Professor 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

Born into leadership expectations

POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams was the favored son of his estimable father POTUS-02 John Adams. When the younger Adams was a young boy, the elder Adams began taking his young son abroad on European diplomatic missions representing the newly-established USA. The younger Adams began his lifelong career in political diplomacy very early by serving as his father's assistant and scribe. The younger Adams was eventually elected to POTUS-06 but he expressed great reluctance and dissatisfaction with this ultimate duty, often remarking that his earlier career untainted by the vulgarity of Washington D.C. culture had been much more beneficial and balanced.

Shani (government) Surya (dad) Chandra (mom) * Shani abolitionism wins (eventually)

Like all things Shani, JQ's absolute abolitionist stance took a long time to bear political fruit. Yet in 1865 - forty years after JQ's presidency- the USA finally freed the slaves. Eventually JQ Adam's political philosophies and jurisprudence were fully enacted during the administration of POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln, when human slavery was finally eradicated.

Enemies in Government * rogesha Shani-10

His bitter adversary and successor POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson was vigorously pro-slavery and opposed to the insinuation that the slaves had human rights. Jackson and his parochial supporters made vile accusations against JQ, who was simply appalled at their rudeness and had no defenses against the ruffians. The vulgarity of Jackson's administration was so extreme that many educated observers despaired of decency ever being restored. It was a dark time in American politics.

Shani Mahadasha heaviest duties

Shani-Mrigashira occupies bhava-10 in 6th-from-5th suggests a responsible government authority figure who is beset by chronic (Shani) political adversaries. Shani dominated by atmakaraka vyayapathi-12 Surya but Shani is not combust.

The beginning of the Shani mahadasha marked a sustained 19-year period of overwhelming responsibilities. During Shani-Shani swabhukti, his father died and JQ was elected POTUS-06. He was constantly engaged with his father's cohort (elders = Shani)

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

  • Rahu in bhava-5 * glamorous or unusual children; out-of-bounds creativity and romance; charismatic center-of-attention ; seeks center-stage privilege
  • Rahu-Makara * mask of strict hierarchical order

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Karkata * incomplete security, empty shelter, dissolute caretaking
  • Ketu in classroom-11 * disregards community * no barriers in community, absent from network, vacuous friendships
  • Mangala-yuti-Ketu * surrendered championship, empty actions, unsustainable domination, unlimited competition
  • Budha-yuti-Ketu * surrendered articulation, empty talk, unlimited evangelism

Ketu occupies the emotionally catastrophic-transformative the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

The Ketu-Budha-Kuja-nichha cluster in bhava-11 created a repeating "frenemy" pattern for JQ Adams which resulted in anger and apathy. He was a brilliant man, but he was not a happy man.

Most people at the time believed in State's Rights as the basis (4) of the Union but JQ could not allow that State's Rights extended to placing people in bondage. Ketu-yuti-nichha-Kuja un-binds the typical leashing-and-squeezing of Azlesa Mangala.

Budha-yuti-Ketu and Ketu-yuti-nichha-Kuja in 12th-from-Zukra suggests that his wife's vitality might be sapped (12) via ongoing mental confusion and emotional trauma. Louisa suffered ongoing and severe anxiety-depressions which often incapacitated her.

Budha-yuti-Ketu and Ketu-yuti-nichha-Kuja in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra suggests that the parents (Chandra) made a catastrophic (8) error in judgment(Ketu-Budha) due to lack of due diligence.

The inquiry was incomplete (Budha-Ketu) and nichha-Kuja made the marriage decision seem urgent with emotionally-motivated impulse to act quickly to secure a situation. Kuja-Karka acts decisively to bind and secure.

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 93.

BPL commentary:

For Arudra natives, the disposition of Professor Rahu considerably affects the outcome. Exotics, opportunists, mesmerizers, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Arudra Feminine Nativities are often the 'diva' type: mentally focused and sensuously fascinating (Rahu) but demanding.

"A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...

Her disagreeable disposition,

coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,

  • makes it difficult for other people to tolerate her.

Although she is extremely clever in her conversation

and many people will be impressed by her speech,

  • while still disliking her.

She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,

  • but on herself rather than on others,

  • although at times she will be grudgingly generous
  • to those with whom she comes in contact.

She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

  • as there is a tendency towards tuberculosis."

Strength of her Ketu afflicting Budha, Zukra, and pitrikaraka Surya in kutumbha bhava-9 indicates her father's financial (Zukra) and political (Surya) and mental-health (Budha issues, along with the complexities of misapprehension and misinterpretation in her spoken expression.

  • Chandra in Punarvasu * comforted by restoration of abundance * protectors of sensitive wise instruction, expansive details, generous planning, philosophical explanations
  • Chandra in classroom-1 * comfort in physical embodiment, direct action, innovation, new birth

Chandra rules-2 occupies bhava-1 karakamsha

Candescent Chandra in bhava-1 indicates a primary emotional identification with the family of origin. JQ Adams' Chandra-Dhanushya occupies her bhava-7. The marriage while a site of much complaint was enduring. Chandra-1 rules 8th-from-7th, suggesting that emotionally she may have been an agent of constantly flowing transformation within the marriage. However Chandra-1 also supports the parenting behaviors of providing shelter, schoolteaching, caretaking, and transport for her birth family and for the family she created with her husband JQ Adams.

Mother-in-law Abigail Adams

There is an obvious bond between the two women with 4th-from-Guru husband's mother = bhava-2 family, and ruled by Louisa's Chandra-1. Despite the difference in the personal styles, with Louisa being emotionally volatile (Chandra-1 and Arudra) while Abigail was more level-headed, nevertheless POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams the mother-in-law would have been kindly toward Louisa J. Adams her daughter-in-law.

  • They had similar lifestyle challenges of needing to manage households, children, and social networks (Guru-11 Louisa's networking diplomat husband) .
  • They both had husbands whose nation-building work caused constant traveling, and they both realized how essential was their role in that great enterprise.
  • They were also both strong proponents of women's rights, even in the early 1800's.

the Kumbha-9 cluster occupies 9th-from-Chandra, granting an interest in politics, capacity for celebrity, and a complex - often contradictory - paradigm of belief

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Kanya * old accusations, pressured logic, must do service ministry with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-4 * must remain, root, defend, shelter; cautious, conventional mother-figures; chronic scarcity in home

Budha-9 parivartamsha Shani-4

Shani rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra indicating house moves forced by public duties and a repeating cycle of scarce resources in the home

The parivartamsha of Kanya-Shani-4 with Kumbha-Budha-9 offers strengthening endurance (Shani) and capacity to sing, speak, and handle large groups in entertainment settings (Budha-Kumbha yuti Zukra). This ability served her well over decades of required entertaining of her husband's diplomatic and political associates. She was a noted musical harpist and singer.

Overall, her emotional interactions with the family of her politically influential parents-in-law POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams and POTUS-02 partner Abigail Adams would have been stable but with strict rules for behavior, due to 2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra being bhava-8 in-laws located in bhava-4 Shani.

  • Budha-yuti-Ketu * surrendered articulation, empty talk, unlimited evangelism
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * surrendered arrangements, empty promises, unsustainable contracts, unlimited music

the Kumbha-9 cluster occupies 9th-from-Chandra

The Ketu-9 graha-complex interacting with rogesha Mangala ultimately points to the struggles with alcohol, opium, prostitution, depression, and suicide which afflicted variously herself (Budha lagnesha) her father (Surya) and her sons (9). The polarizing catalysis of her two eldest sons, who died of alcoholism and suicide in their early 30's, as well as the death of her toddler daughter, are indicated by these same graha in 5th-from-5th

Her mentally stable husband remained unafflicted by her Ketu complex, although he was much consumed with public duties and his own Zukra-Guru-12 pair suggests that he sought private, supplementary companionship.
