BPL commentary:

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

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poetic romantics, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Pleyades.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"A proud, dignified, and honorable person

  • - an executive type.

He is very ambitious and eager for power

  • and has the ability to achieve his desires.

He has an innate sense of the importance of his destiny .

He expects everything to come to him as his due

  • and usually gets what he sets out to obtain ."

POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson = an academic specialist in the topic off governance administration and public management

Karmesha-10 = Shani-3, while the rulers of 1-2-4-7-8 occupy karmabhava-10

Administration is the most obvious part of government; it is government in action; it is the executive, the operative, the most visible side of government, and is of course as old as government itself.

7th-from-Chandra-10 = bhava-4 Karkata

Wilson's first wife, the fine-arts painter Ellen Axson . Ms. Axson was lovely and talented both socially and artistically. Her primary role in his life was mother and home-keeper. As Wilson rose from the ranks of professorship into university presidency, the couple enjoyed both capital wealth and distinguished, accomplished company.

Sadly, Ellen Axson suffered from excruciatingly painful, debilitating Bright's Disease (diabetes-type-1). Shani in 6th-from-Zukra chronic ailments of the wife, Shani-Arudra hormone insufficiency. She was increasingly ill during his Guru Mahadasha thus retired to her sickroom while he continued to pursue his career ambitions Guru-yuti Rahu.

Zukra + Mangala + Chandra suggests three marriage-type alliances'

Wilson maintained an affair du coeur with his wealthy socialite mistress for some years during his wife's progressing illness. However it was generally believed that his indiscretions were accepted by his first wife as an enablement toward Wilson's climb toward higher social privilege Rahu.

2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra-10 = bhava-11 Kumbha

Edith Galt Wilson was a capable partner and manager. After Wilson suffered a severely debilitating stroke, Edith Galt was accused by Wilson's critics of covertly operating the Whitehouse according to her own abilities.

Zukra-yuti-Mangala + Chandra. Two marriages and one significant affair-du-coeur.

Toward the end of his Princeton University presidency, Wilson endured a political scandal . via exposure of his sexual affair with a local New Jersey socialite. However she also had the money and the connections to assist his election to New Jersey governor, a post he held for less than two years before ascending to POTUS-28.

Rapidly following his first wife's death from kidney disease in Aug-1914, Wilson endured minor scandal again via his (apparently) sudden courtship and remarriage to Washington DC socialite and widow, Edith Boling Galt. It is said that he and Mrs. Galt were ready to marry in Nov-1914 (suggesting that this was not a new relationship). However he was pressured by his advisors to delay for the customary one year of public widowhood. Thus President Wilson and Mrs. Galt were ceremonially married in 1915.

Wife-2 the Proxy POTUS * uttama-Kuja-10

Marriage-2 is represented by 2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra-10 ++ uttama-Kuja-10 (graha holding 2nd-highest-degree following Zukra. Wife-1 = Zukra.)

Mrs. Galt's Chandra-Meena links into Wilson's R-K axis empowered by Meena-Guru, allowing invisible empowerments.

After Wilson's paralyzing stroke in Sept-1919, Edith Galt reputedly became the proxy POTUS-28, making executive decisions on her husband's behalf. By her own account, she merely limited his visitors while he was paralyzed and held his pen-writing hand steady so that he could sign important documents. However, observers claim that Edith Boling Galt was acting as the de facto president while the de jure president Wilson continued to collapse in failing health. She prioritized which documents came to his attention and told him what to sign.

Edith Wilson was respected as his gatekeeper and her executive intelligence allowed the government to continue during the crisis of her husband's debilitating illness.

Shani occupies the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra

Wilson suffered from circulatory problems and hardening of the arteries, along with depression and dour spirits. A few of his massive stress factors included World-War-1 and severe conflict with Congress; his workaholism was legendary and it produced a downward spiral of crippling illness while in office

Shani duty above all

In his second POTUS term, WIlson was debilitated by severe stroke injury. Nevertheless, he completed hise executive duties with full dignity. Very few members of the public realized how crippling his injuries truly were. Exhausted from the effort, he died soon after completing term-2.

From Chandra-Makara lagna, the mature voice of sober serious structured hierarchical Professor Shani rules

  • the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  • the emotional authenticity of in-the-body feelings represented by sensitive, receptive, absorptive Chandrana

Shani Mahadasha * age 54.3 until decease age 67

Rahu the Poseur may pose as a dreamer, an ancestor spirit-guide, a magician from distant lands.
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu * amplified generosity, magnified diversity, exotic beliefs, tricky teachings, opportunistic preachers

Wilson managed the impending forces of World War-2 still in their inchoate form. His attempts to create peaceful interlinked community via the League of Nations did technically fail (because the forces that wanted war really wanted it) but a war-weary nation did pay him to forestall it at least.

  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial)* absentee enemies, disregards argumentation boundaries, medical advice, dissolves the conflicts, ambivalent toward the power of exploitation, disinterested in disagreement, irrelevance of accusations
