Masculine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary:

For Pushya nativities, 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.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Asellus

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, they have a gift for combining local customs with larger social policy frameworks, most notably law. Pushya masculine figures are influential in the world and respected for their culturally sensitive judgment. Pushyami are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"An earnest, thoughtful character,

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

  • and a supporter of church and religious activities.

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

  1. 7th-from-Chandra-3 * Marriage-1 = bhava-9
  2. 2nd-from 7th-from-Chandra-3 * Marriage-2 = bhava-3

His first wife Letitia was known for her beauty, piety (9) and sobriety (Shani), as well as the significant wealth of her family-of-origin (Zukra). She is represented by 7th-from-Kanya-Chandra-3 containing the Surya-Shani-Zukra cluster in Meena where Surya enjoys parivartamsha with the wealthy and prosperous Guru-2.

Before her untimely death, Letitia suffered severe illness related to the Surya-Guru parivartamsha on the 6/8 angle, and her husband was prone to digestive illness as well. His wife's paralysis lasted through the Guru-Chandra, Guru-Mangala, and Guru-Rahu periods.

When Letitia died in the Whitehouse during his Guru-Rahu chidra-dasha, ambitious excitable Rahu was clearly ready to remarry. Tyler wasted no time.

nichha Mangala-1 rules 5-children

Tyler sired more children than any other POTUS: eight from his first marriage and seven from his second marriage. vidyapathi-5 Mangala-Karkata-1. His abolitionist political adversaries claimed that Tyler had also fathered children with his female slaves, then sold his maroon offspring into the slave market.

Considering the sexual (and cruelty) potential of Azleza Kuja in lagna and Rahu's ruler uttama-Zukra vriddhipati-11 , this outcome is not impossible.

Also, Zukra-Surya-Shani, notwithstanding Surya-parivartamsha - Guru, does suggest at least three and potentially more "wives" where the definition of Wife = whomever may bear one's children.

Unlike many planter-politicians who were absentee landlords, Tyler was rooted into his lifestyle of plantation farming. He continued to acquire lands and slaves throughout his lifetime, increasing his profits regularly

Vriddhipathi-11 uttama-Bhrigu in 11th-from-11th bhava-9. He pressed his neighbors to supply their slaves for roadwork (Rahu-4).

Understanding that his substantial wealth was created by slave labor (Rahu-4 and rogesha-6 Guru-2) in elder years he became a supporter of the secession of the slave-states Confederacy. Yet dogged as always by Ketu-10, he was similarly ineffective in this leadership role as he had been in earlier responsibilities.

Rahu-4 ruled by Zukra-9 mentors, guides

Tyler hailed from a materially wealthy slave-owning Virginia plantation family. He enjoyed a superb education for his era, and acquired helpful mentors.

Rahu-Thula in 2nd-from-Chandra- Kanya--3

shows the extraordinary character and circumstances of the second lifepartnership.

Within only months of his first wife's death, Tyler ardently pursued his second wife, 30 years his junior (and younger than his elder daughters). She rebuffed his passions at first.

Suddenly, randhresha-8 Shani-Shani swabhukti brought a catastrophic accident that killed her father, many of his staff, and others near to them. In the colossal grief which followed this disastrous shock, yuvatipathi-7 Shani via Surya was able to produce the results of ruler of navamsha-7 Guru, and they married in secret.

His children from the first marriage were not informed of the wedding until later (Shani randhresha-8 ) and they did not all agree to accept Tyler's second marriage. Typical of the relentlessly high-conflict situations in which Tyler found himself, he simply stood his ground (Karkata) until the factions settled.
