features of the nativity
The father (Surya) of POTUS-27 William Howard Taft was Mr. Alfonso Taft, a respected national bureaucrat and attorney from Ohio. Alfonso had been an influential political official (5). Alfonso served as Attorney General and Secretary of War under POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant.
Under POTUS-21 Civil Service 1829-1886 Chester A. Arthur, Alfonso Taft was as a USA diplomat to Austria and then to Russia. The Taft family are considered a USA political dynasty, albeit a subtle one. The sons of POTUS-27 sons served in the USA Senate, as Governor of Ohio, and other positions. Beginning with Alfonso Taft and continuing to the present day, there have been Taft family members working in national government during most national administrations.
His ambitious wife Nellie Herron, herself the product of a political dynasty hailing from the USA northeastern cities, oft bemoaned her husband's lack of personal desire to play and win (Ketu-5). In fact, she is considered the driving force of his political career. The powerhouse-wife is a common outcome when the natal Moon occupies 4 marking the spouse as 10; thus the spouse possesses the drive to achieve high-visibility positions, and a female spouse may push her husband mightily toward the top ranks of elite governance empowerment.

As is often the case with a person who occurs in high positions as the result of deals and compromises made by others, POTUS-27 Taft's radical nativity is less distinguished but his navamsha D-9 and dashamamsha D-10 are empowered in all kendra. Taft's career was the product of arrangements made in smoke-filled rooms. He himself had no interest in electioneering. Taft was highly competent administratively due to Budha-Kanya * uttama receiving drishti of Shani. Yet he lacked ego-charisma due to Surya-yuti-Ketu-5.
maraka rules-2 Budha-yuti-Ketu
At 325 pounds peak weight, William Howard Taft was dubbed "Big Bill.” Taft was the largest president in American history and reportedly once got stuck in the White House bathtub. His advisors had to help him navigate certain tight spaces, both physically and politically. After completing his term of office after losing the re-election in 1912, Taft lost 80 pounds within a year. He was a tea-total-er (non-alcohol drinker, only tea) but he supported others' right to drink as they pleased. He suffered heart problems throughout adult life (Surya-yuti-Ketu-5 takes drishti of Shani).

POTUS-27 Dollar Diplomacy 1857-1930 William Howard Taft * Rahu-11-Meena with Guru-Meza-12 * was the son of a high ranking government official Alfonso Taft. Young William was considered not brilliant but a hard worker with a natural affinity for management and administration (lagnesha Zukra-3 yuti Shani).
He was very heavy-set (325 pounds at his peak weight) and not especially charismatic (Surya-yuti-Ketu). Yet Taft was well-liked in bureaucratic circles due to his diligent handling of "process". His family name was respected due to his father's reputation; overall however William Howard Taft showed few earmarks of political ambition. In fact, he stood for only three elections in his entire 50-year career - one for municipal office in Cincinnati, and two for POTUS. His other roles were all granted by appointment (11, social network, friends).
