BPL commentary:

high forehead. Most Punavasu nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers.

For Punarvasu natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, ideologues, theorists, proselytes, philosophers, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guidance from the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux.

"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.

In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty."

vidyapathi-5 and ruler-of-12 Zukra-Makara-8 secretive relationships and covert dealings in distant lands, but protected by a stainless Vimala Yoga Marriage

marriage narrative for partners of native with Chandra-8

Zukra-yuti-Mangala = two marriages (three suggested relationships considering also Chandra-8)

7th-from- Chandra-8 represents Wilson's first wife, the fine-arts painter Ellen Axson (2, values) . Ms. Axson was lovely and talented both socially and artistically. As Wilson rose from the ranks of professorship into university presidency, the couple enjoyed both capital wealth and distinguished, accomplished company.

However Ellen Axson suffered from excruciatingly painful, debilitating Bright's Disease (diabetes-type-1). Budha, lagnesha in 7-alliances, rules ailments of the wife 6th-from-Zukra. She was increasingly ill during his Guru Mahadasha thus retired to her sickroom while he continued to pursue his career ambitions yuvatipathi-7 Guru-10 yuti Rahu. 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.

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

Toward the end of his Princeton University presidency, Wilson endured a political scandal . The cause of scandal was 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 rapid 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 legally married in 1915.

Wife-2 the Proxy POTUS

Marriage-2 is represented by 7th-from- Chandra-8 and also by vidyapathi-5 politics and ruler-of-12 invisibility Zukra (holder of the 2nd-highest degree among the three graha yuti Zukra)

7th-from-Chandra =bhava-9 5th-from-5th. Zukra is also political as vidyapathi-5 but secretive as vyayapathi-12. Importantly, Zukra enjoys a Vimala Yoga due to being ruler-of-12 in 8. Thus whatever is done is secrecy and invisibility, particularly what is done by the second wife, comes to no harm.

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.

Much is not known due to the significations of 8 and 12. Still, the social-material profile of the second marriage (seen from a social perspective, not an emotional view) is also represented by Kumbha. Shani in the relative 5th-from-Kumbha suggests communications responsibilities and a capacity for imposing limits and schedules (Shani). She was respected as his gatekeeper. Due to Vimala Yoga her clandestine empowerment met no significant challenge.
