Masculine Nativity Anuradha * Maitra
For Anuradha natives, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani considerably affects 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.
Instruction from the guardians of the civilizations of Gisgan-gusura.
Anuradha is about imposing order after chaos. They have a special gift for threat reduction. After the explosive Shock of Visaka-Radha, Anuradha does triage. Anuradha mitigates terror. Anuradha imposes mandatory compliance.
Maitra-born are found in emergency centers, disaster response control rooms, high-risk insurance, elite rescue operations, military explosives testing, hazardous materials management, controlled substance regulation.. Maitra are often the bridge-builders following a social scandal or fight. They maintain order in dangerous conditions via war policy, catastrophe planning, epidemic and famine response, and emergency governance regimes such as martial law. Being Shani-ruled, they are naturally suited to legislative and executive roles in government.
Themes of risk regulation, damage control , and orderly response to traumatic shock may contextualize the terrestrial experience of Anusham.

Guru-1 also contributes to his portly status
Mr. Arthur spent most of his bureaucratic career working within the extensively corrupt political jobs-for-sale "machine" economy of antebellum New York City. He participated in, and eventually operated, an extensive bribery system = buy-sell political jobs (especially those jobs which involved collecting shipping fees and taxes). He started in the Customs Bureau and slowly his influence spread throughout New York.
Almost everyone owed him some type of favor; also he was both non-confrontational and pleasantly sociable by nature * Budha-yuti-Zukra in the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra friendliness
Toward the end of his life during Rahu-Mangala chidra-dasha where Mangala for the Vrizchika radical lagna is not only the lagnesha but also the rogesha-6 indicating criminals, POTUS-21 Civil Service 1829-1886 Chester A. 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.
His career and his personal life remained untouched by the criminal environment in which he operated daily; he effectively worked under camouflage pretending to be a lawyer and an accountant * randhresha-8 bean-counter Budha-12 Viparita Raja-Yoga * Sarala Yoga
Placed by the machine into a place-holder vice presidency, Arthur attained the presidency rather accidentally via assassination of POTUS-20 Universal Education 1831-1881 James Garfield * * Rahu-Zukra period * atmakaraka Zukra rules 10th navamsha * Zukra yuti randhresha-8 Budha sudden shock
Mrs. Chester "Nell" was a notable singer, a beauty, wealthy and from a distinguished Virginia family. Vriddhipathi-11 Budha-yuti-Zukra-12
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, and she favored the southern cause even while her northerner husband was an outspoken abolitionist. Yet their New York City parties were society events and her lovely singing voice advanced Arthur's career in the Republican political machine.
suddenly at her age 42, Nell died 12-Jan-1880 of pneumonia. 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 flirtations. She died just before he entered the Whitehouse.
After a lifetime of party-going and taking emotional relief in food with drink Chandra-2. Arthur himself died 18-Nov-1886 of painful kidney disease age 57.
His leadership roles are not iconic or indeed egocentric but rather the product of his remarkable and enriching relationship-building skills, due to atmakaraka Zukra strong in navamsha-10 and Karakamsha = 7, negotiations and trusts.
