For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Yamya, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.
Guidance provided by instructors from the civilizations of Apis. Their purpose is acquisition of treasuries, carrying of beautiful objects , and preservation of values across the generations.
Burdened Banker Busy Bee
Zukra-ruled Bharani masculine-figures are the Money Guys. Yamuna-born are often found in the worlds of banking, valuation, capital markets, currency-trading, mints and coinage. Connoisseurs of pricing and aggressive deal-makers, they vigorously seek acquisition of precious objects. In addition to their financial abilities, due to their intuitive understanding of sound-and-color values, Bharani males may also pursue careers in music and arts. Most Bharani men can sing beautifully.
The harmonious arrangements of Apa-bharanishe may be lovely even while they vigorously compete for dominance. Their expertise in the fields of preservation, containment, and collecting may extend to wines, perfumes, fine textiles, works of art, and any commodity which may capitalize or increase in value. Like all Zukra-governed births, they must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol.
Themes of competitive acquisition, precious sounds and song, and investment in cherished values may contextualize Bharani's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Bharani.

Earthbody-Entry 30-Aug-1837 * Earthbody-Exit 12-Jan-1880 (age 42)

Arthur married his young wife following the death of her sea-captain father in a celebrated marine accident where the father safely transferred the women and children from his ship then drowned as he "went down with the ship" * an action considered then and now to demonstrate a highly noble character.
Unfortunately their marriage occurred just at the opening of Civil War hostilities. While her northerner husband was an outspoken abolitionist, Nell favored the southern cause.
Yet their New York City parties were society events and her lovely singing voice advanced Arthur's career within the Republican political machine.
Suddenly on 12-Jan-1880 at her age 42, Nell died of pneumonia (the disease of grief). She was the mother of three children (two living). It was said that she died after years of neglect by Arthur, who seemed unable to spend an evening at home due to his back-room political dealings, his drinking, and other chronic distractions. She died just before VPOTUS Arthur assumed office.

Then Arthur unexpectedly began to dismantle the federally protected criminal corruption system.
Guru rules 12 = 6th-from-7th = breaking contracts, dissolving agreements, violating promises
Toward the end of his life, Arthur surprised all of his political machine friends by making reforms to the federal corruption system. It was literally his "last official act" to unseat the federal patronage system, because Arthur died shortly after finishing his presidential term of office.

Arthur was a serious if not exceptional student. During Chandra Mahadasha, He earned a bachelor's diploma and a law license, and due to Shani's rulership of 10 + 11 he learned social etiquette at college as well..He certainly understood money, as seen from Shani's rulership of 2-3 from Chandra, his Bharani lagna, and his Zukra 10th navamsha.

He started in the Customs Bureau and slowly his influence spread throughout New York.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu-12 in 4th-from-Chandra indicates the constant movement of his family during his childhood, and his own habit of rarely being at home as an adult.
