BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, merchants, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

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

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

"Andrew Jackson - Ad from Tennessee Gazette, October 3, 1804. Photographed by Tennessee State Library. Reprinted in Cynthia Cumfer, Separate Peoples, One Land: The Minds of Cherokees, Blacks, and Whites on the Tennessee Frontier (University of North Carolina Press, 2007).

Notice published by future president Andrew Jackson offering a $50 reward, plus expenses, for the return of an enslaved mulatto man who escaped from Jackson's plantation. In a move unusual for the time, the notice offers "ten dollars extra, for every hundred lashes any person will give him, to the amount of three hundred."

Suryaurya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka


Both of Jackson's parents had emigrated from "born to fight" Ulster. His elder brothers were born in Ulster, but Andrew would be born in the USA. Sadly, three weeks before Andrew's birth, his dad died, making Andrew the youngest son of a poor immigrant widow.

Meena Surya (politics) + uttama-Zukra (wife) + nichha-Budha (untruths) in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -10 Simha politics governance.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka


Shani-yuti-Mangala * hard-boiled shortage of empathy * Shani shortage and Mangala drishti into empathetic Chandra


Jackson's mother was politically active (Simha, incoming drishti of active Mangala) in the Revolutionary War cause. She nursed wounded soldiers, and died of disease thus acquired.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership * 7th-from-Chandra-10

Generally the lifepartner of 7th-from-Chandra-10, whether husband or wife, wishes to stay at home. Mrs. Jackson remained at the Hermitage while Mr. Jackson fought battles and ran political campaigns. Bhava-4 representing the partner is Kumbha receiving 10th-drishti from responsible Shani-7, suggesting her deep and unswerving sense of duty to her lands and her marriage.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka lagnesha Mangala in classroom-2


  • Mangala in bhava-7 * drive toward negotiation, contract, contractual conquests
  • Mangala-Vrizabha * vigorous pursuit of collections, herds, treasuries, banks
  • Kuja-yuti-Shani * energized rules, dynamic structuring, masculine force joins disciplined regulation

** plebian hero, war hero, annihilator of native peoples

POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson was a vigorous frontiersman, politician, and warrior. His lifestyle was pioneering (Kuja), physical, and aggressive; often lived outdoors in the company of men. Jackson was a highly controversial figure in Washington DC. He was considered rough and impulsive, murderous, and lacking finesse. However his lagnesha Kuja-7 shares Vrishabha-7 with digbala Shani while Shani and Mangala are receiving the drishti of Rahu-Makara-10 while Mangala himself sends drishti into Chandra-Guru-Simha-10 boosting the political visibility. Mangala-7 alone would have been too vigorous and impatient. However tempered by Shani and amplified by Rahu, Jackson's Mangala-7 served to increase his effectiveness. Despite the misgivings of many who found him cruel and impulsive, Jackson endured eight years (two terms) as POTUS-07 * 1829-1837

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Meena Surya (politics) + uttama-Zukra (gracious wife) + nichha-Budha (untruths, half-truths) in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra ra-10 Simha politics governance.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka * uttama

Zukra uttama-Meena * a beautiful wife

Zukra-yuti-Surya = a handsome visage. Jackson suffered acute health issues, but he kept a thick head of hair, sparkling green eyes. Despite his evil doings and his sicknesses, he remained a handsome fellow.

Meena Surya (politics) + uttama-Zukra (wife) + nichha-Budha (untruths) in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -1-10 Simha politics governance.

During the "dirtiest campaign in American history" the notorious election of 1828, the supporters of her husband's rival, POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams attacked the virtue of both Jackson and his wife. A great beauty in her youth but unable to bear public exposure, Rachel Donelson Jackson was bombarded taunts of 'harlot' and 'hussy' from her husband's political enemies.

Other features

Zukra-Meena * uttama * Mrs. Jackson was said to have enjoyed a lovely appearance in youth. Yet her short stature paired with a notably full figure in her maturity exacerbated existing cardiac issues, Simha 6th-from-Zukra.

She died of heart failure only weeks before her husband departed Tennessee toward Washington DC, en route to begin his governance service as POTUS-07.

Incoherent Zukra-yuti-Ketu in 10th navamsha suggests that he would need to govern (10) without the reliable support of partners-advisers. Jackson was also unable to sustain a working cabinet due to fractiousness and greed, suggesting impairment to Zukra in both D-1 and D-9.

Rachel retreated into privacy (Meena)) protecting herself with obesity and a facade of stern Biblical piety. She helped her husband privately, and her family's wealth funded Jackson's career (uttama-Zukra in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -10 = spousal treasures) . Yet she eschewed public appearances and remained sequestered. Overweight (Meena lymph) and overwhelmed, she developed symptoms of angina and died just before he began POTUS-07 work in Washington DC. He served eight years 1829-1837 as a widower, never remarrying. However Surya-yuti-Zukra and Budha-yuti-Zukra do suggest additional private liaisons.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

reputation for having been raised in poverty (Shani) then acquired wealth (dig-bala Shani-7)

  • Shani-Vrizabha * old values, pressured storage, old treasuries, must preserve with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-7 * digbala * must balance; cautious, conventional partnerships; chronic responsibilities toward the spouse
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, physical discipline, constrained movement

Shani accepts incoming amplifying, materialistic, institutional drishti from Rahu-Makara-3

forced red-race hunter-gatherer native tribes to abandon their animal-rich lands and march into the interior wastelands, creating the legendary "Trail of Tears"

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

  • Rahu-Makara-Draco* mask of strict hierarchical order
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, reporting, news announcements, commentary, messaging, publishing; seeks a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Opportunistic, ambitious sibling-cousin or cohort.

During Rahu Mahadasha, where Rahu gives effects of Shani bandhupathi properties, lands, housing, in 1804 Jackson acquired the slave-labor cotton plantation "The Hermitage" This agricultural operation eventually expanded to more than 1000 acres * 425 hectare * and 150 enslaved workers. Jackson was personally identified with The Hermitage and he used its image in all of his public-relations promotional material.
