BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from Pleyades.

the emotionally motivated communicative cohort evangelical instructional team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra containing Ketu indicates TR's younger brother Elliot, a severe alcoholic with mental illness Ketu's ruler = nichha Surya + Zukra-6. Elliot was the father of POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt .

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

May-1895- Apr-1897 = Budha-Surya period * Surya rules 4-police
TR was appointed President of the Board of Police Commissioners for New York City. Kuja-Dhanushya = favorably energized for marksmen, competitors, police shooters.

Mangala rules 10th-from-10th and Mangala rules navamsha-10. Mangala is a careerist and TR is making his mark.

TR imposed a shooting examination for police. (Surya rules 4- examinations) "The shots that hit are the shots that count." "Received national press attention for his reforms, including "midnight rambles in search of policemen not at their posts. Ordered that all police officers must report for target practice, thus establishing the foundation of the Police Academy, one of the first in the country."

Budha-Mangala period April 19, 1897 = Appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy by POTUS-25 Gold Standard William McKinley

Budha-Mangala period: fights on horseback (Dhanushya) in Cuba during the Spanish-American war.

Bepin Behari commentary re: Mangala-Dhanusha-8: "You are courageous despite setbacks in your personal career.

Your occupation in life will be spectacular. You will suddenly shoot up in glory and light. And may die suddenly as well."

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha rules Karakamsha 5-politics, celebrated writings


Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


Guru-1 expands the worldwide personality (and the globe-shaped waistline)

Brihaspati randhresha-8 sudden shock and catastrophic change

Budha-Guru period * Guru-1 occupies 8th-from-mahadashipathi Budha-6

14-Sept-1901 Budha-Guru period As the do-nothing VPOTUS, TR was on a hiking trip with his family when he got word that he had suddenly become POTUS-26.

POTUS-25 Gold Standard William McKinley had been shot and died eight days later from infection. 14-Sept-1901, age 42, TR becomes the youngest POTUS in USA history.

Feb-1902 Budha-Guru period TR orders antitrust suit under Sherman Act to dissolve Northern Securities Company in the first of 45 antitrust lawsuits. TR's ambitious and aggressive Mangala-8 rules 7-lawcourts. The purpose is to expose the corporate-shell-hidden assets to the government thus making those assets available for legal taxation (8).

The national budget, which had been impoverished (Budha-6) by the money-hiding trusts, begins to recover (8-recovery, rebirth) as taxes are recouped.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

1901-1909 POTUS-26 "trust-buster"

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


The Perfect Storm: Rahu occupies the Shad-ashtakya 6/8 angle from Shani. Rahu-Shani period will be brutal.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery) * ruled by Shani-3 in Shad-ashtakya 6/8 angle

Rahu drishti to Chandra-2, Surya-6, Budha-6


Rahu's drishti to both Surya and Chandra shows the powerful effect of Rahu upon both of TR's parents and drishti to Budha-Thula is expressed via his highly effective sister Barnie (Anna). Their legacy is seen via his actions during periods of Rahu.

Rahu-10 occupies the political, global, humanistic trine 5-9 angle from mahadashapthi Budha-6.

vargottamsha Rahu-Kumbha empowered populism

Rahu-umbha-10 is the strongest graha in the nativity via Shad-Bala

Budha-Rahu period: Even having received during career-building Budha-Mangala period what would be for many a peak assignment, May-1898 TR resigns to be Lieutenant-Colonel of the 1st US Volunteer Cavalry Regiment in a typical Rahu-10 display of taboo-breaking Rough Riders. The famed Rough Riders were not authorized by the USA military, and from a diplomatic perspective this renegade group caused a good deal of polarizing catalysis. However it boosted TR's image into the public awareness.

Budha-Rahu period: July-1898. Rough Riders win the decisive Battle of San Juan Heights. TR's powerful career-promoting journalism (Shani-3 rules-Rahu-10) ensures that this achievement is promoted in USA newspapers nationwide The US newspapers (Shani-3 newspapers rules Rahu) vigorously promoted the fascinating (Rahu) image of TR on horseback climbing a hill. There are still hundreds of" TR Rough Rider" statues in public parks throughout the USA.

Budha-Rahu period Nov-1898 a glorious nationwide reputation for bravery and patriotism promotes TR into winning election for Governor of New York State

Budha-Rahu period 1899 While governor, publishes The Rough Riders in a series of easy-reading magazine installments. His national fame continues to grow. Shani-3 journalism rules-Rahu-10

Budha-Rahu period Nov-1901. quits the Governor position to become VPOTUS. In 1900, VPOTUS was a do-nothing job;- strictly a place-holder in case the president became incapacitated. However, being a Rahu-10-Kumbha bhukti signifying opportunism, it was likely that something exciting would occur.

Rahu-Kumbha-10 high visibility = scientist

Rahu = wild + exotic entities

Major African safari [wild and exotic animals] "All told, Roosevelt and his companions killed or trapped over 11,397 animals " (wikipedia) Although unethical by today's standards of animal protection, TR was widely admired for this contribution to natural science joined with demonstrations of dominating manliness

Teddy Bears were named after Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot a small bear cub one day. The incident was reported in the news, which inspired a toy manufacturer to produce the cute stuffed animal toys.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

1912 = TR's final attempt to regain POTUS rank. Although Ketu bhukti is typically an era of nebulization and dispersion and moreso for the Budha-Ketu chidradasha , Simha-Ketu (politics) also occupies the gainful 11th from mahadashapati Budha so that TR was well funded by his friends in the party. However, it was clearly going to be a no-go as Ketu ruled by nichha-Surya-6 deprived TR of the physical health necessary to proceed.

TR's mentally ill and addicted alcoholic brother Elliot is indicated in the nativity by the emotionally motivated communicative cohort evangelical instructional team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra = Ketu-4.

Ketu-4 lands and properties; nourishment and shelter; transportation

Ketu-4 is rarely at home

Ketu ruled by political Simha and Ketu occupies 11th-from-Simha

During the first half of Ketu mahadasha, a tremendous amount of political legislation regarding matters of bhava-4. Until his final day in office Mar-1909, TR continues to vastly increase the national treasury of wildlands, game reserves, and places of stunning natural beauty

Wichita Forest, Oklahoma made first federal game preserve. Grand Canyon (1908); Fire Island, Alaska (1909); and National Bison Range, Montana (1909).

LANDS (4) Jun-1906. Established the first 18 National Monuments, including Muir Woods (1908) and Grand Canyon (1908); Forest Homestead Act.
