BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, bandmates, team-mates, neighbors, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, merchants, reporters, writers, scripts, and texts may be especially influential.

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85


"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

a pioneering supporter of women's suffrage

In particular, Harding was an outspoken advocate of American women's rights. A vigorous supporter of the none-too-popular constitutional amendment which in 1920 permitted USA women to vote, during his brief two-year term in office he helped ensure the passage of 19th Amendment.

"who controls the press controls the public"


Warren Harding died of a heart attack while holding the premier national office.

  • career newspaperman
  • a writer, an interviewer, a journalist
  • Harding owned newspapers and like most newspapermen of his day he wrote much of his own copy = Budha-yuti-Shani
  • In political campaigning, Harding was well regarded for his ability to speak in plain talk to the common folk, especially on topics of money - the straightforward talk about money in terms of household or small business budget made Harding sound like a man of the people rather than an out-of-touch Washington capitalist.

parivartamsha yoga * Budha-Thula + Zukra-Kanya

Harding was a great champion of Women's Right to Vote (Thula) under the 22nd amendment to the USA constitution which granted citizenship to women.

Harding's wife destroyed the great majority of his papers so that his presidential legacy is quite inscrutable.

The Amazing Flossie Harding = uttama-Shani rules-7 in 3 + Kuja + Surya-yuti-Budha

Also in 7th from Chandra: the same power-graha Shani+ Kuja + Surya-yuti-Budha

Mrs. Flossie Harding brought her higher social connections into the marriage, managed their joint personal and commercial finances, built his newspaper business circulation and reputation, scheduled his travel, and promoted his career all the way from a small town in Ohio to the White House in Washington D.C. She was widely recognized as "the brains of the operation".

Flossie gave well-arranged parties, wrote his presidential speeches and decided his domestic policy. Her power arose via President Harding's uttama-Shani rules-7 in 3 + Kuja + Surya-yuti-Budha with Budha in parivartamsha + Zukra. (however his nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu in 8th-from-7th did not stop his hidden affair-du-coeur with her best friend...)

yuvatipathi-7 Zukra-yuti-Rahu

Harding's wife and career manager Flossie Harding controlled his public relations. Her main strategy for avoiding scandalous revelations of the scope of his political corruption was to destroy the great majority of his personal papers.

Such was her influence that she was able to destroy nearly all of his career documentation from 30 years in public service within the first six months after his death; the remainder of his papers were vetted by her and her secretaries before she died the following year, with a very small portion left available to history. Traditionally it is the years following a presidency which are the time set aside, often funded by Congress, to organize the presidential papers and make records available to historians.

Warren's records have essentially vanished. The power of invisibility granted by Zukra amplified by Rahu is truly awesome in this case. That no one stopped her in this amazing rampage is quite remarkable; typical of Rahu she simply appropriated the annihilating power, asking no one's permission and doing what she believed simply needed to be done!

It is a complex career situation

  • Harding's polemical-oratorical skills were strong
  • his speeches were numerous and quite popular throughout his career, but his manner of speaking appealed to the less patrician audiences.
Educated critics noted his constant grammatical errors.

Budha = logical but argumentative - yuti Shani (rough or plebian) with nichha-Surya (false confidence) + challenger-Mangala

blackmail =

Harding had a somewhat chequered reputation . He was a noted philanderer * Zukra-Kanya yuti Rahu , which created a significant election liability, but he did not tell the Party about his long-standing indiscretions until the threat of politically catastrophic scandal (6) had already manifest. The cost of his apathy toward these consequences was a major blackmail.

Karakamsha =

Harding's legacy and the behavior for which he was indeed best known (most notorious) in his own day, was the blackmail and various corruption scandals, secrecy, and infidelity.

Yet with Harding was able to prevent disclosure (to continue to veil dissolve enclose, 12) most of his indiscretions and maintain his public dignity (10th from). "Don't try to kid a kidder" as they say - he was an experienced newspaperman and he knew how to manage a "spin" (3, public relations media packaging).onflict and animosity, broken promises, bribery and corruption

Budha + Shani-yuti-Kuja + Surya-Vanika =

Chandra-6 lifelong health problems, summarized as "exhaustion".

dhanapati-2+ bandesha-4 + Vidyapthi-5+ yuvatipathi-7 + dharmesha-9 + karmesha-10 , and ruler-of-12 occupy ripasthana-6 indicating conditions of illness, animosity, and erosion of agreements.

Also, both of his parents were physicians (6).

uttama-Shani/6 = ability to succeed professionally (Surya, karmesha-10 uttama-Shani) in environments characterized by illness, corruption, exploitation, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy

Another expression of the remarkable collection of graha in bhava-6 of exploitation and broken promises was the exceptional political corruption of Harding's administration, including the notorious "Teapot Dome" scandal in which numerous of his political appointees at top levels of national leadership were convicted of large-scale bribery and imprisoned. Harding famously said that he had no polarizing catalysis from enemies, but that his friends and their choices kept him awake at night.

Death

POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding died on the job at age 57, in 1923. Harding had a long history of personal illnesses related to"stress " including bouts of severe asthma (bhratrupathi-3 Shani lungs, yuti L-3rd from Chandr Budha, 4 graha in bhava-12 retreat).

He died in a San Francisco hotel room (12) during an extended travel- tour (12, long sojourn) of the western USA including Alaska. Death is variously and inconsistently attributed to a complex of physical factors, including pre-existing heart weakness, infection perhaps from food poisoning.

Vrizchika being 8th from his Mesha-Chandra, poisoning whether accidental or intentional is possible. Medical mismanagement was almost certainly a factor due interference by his ambitious, privacy obsessed wife.

Harding amidst the Teapot Dome severe political scandal at the time of death; randhresha-8 uttama-Shani in sanctuary-seeking 12. Flossie refused an autopsy; and before anyone in government was aware of her actions, she had burned most of his medical records, private papers and presidential correspondence. To this day it remains unclear what may have caused his premature death.

Women's Suffrage, Extramarital Romance and Marriage

Zukra = Zukra in bhava-11 = nichha Rahu in putrasthana = Romance and Politics.

Sweets-seeking Zukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing practices also)

nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu in a husband-fgure nativity is typically challenged via passionate relationships women, which Harding certainly did have.

  • Nevertheless a parivartamsha yog with Budha provides great remediation, such that undue association (Rahu) with Feminine Nativities of exotic character was suitably mixed with those women also possessing remarkably high and articulate intelligence, because of the exchange .

  • So, Harding's support for the women's suffrage (right to vote) movement, no doubt urged strenuously by the various legal and illegal women in his life, resulted in his winning the presidential election in the first year that women were allowed to vote (1921) in the USA.

  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu = agent of taboo-breaking changes for women. (Thank you for the vote, Mr. Harding : )

Despite maintaining a good social-facade relationship with his ambitious wife, Harding was a philanderer, and his main extramarital affair resulted in a major blackmail situation.

  • Harding was quite a handsome man = lagnesha Zukra-yuti-Rahu.

  • Professor Rahu craves elevation to a higher social station via various sorts of amusements: romance, literature, poetry, politics, theatre, children, games, or creative performance.

  • His spouse (Zukra) was socially exotic, a female divorcee in those days was rare and taboo in the conservative-facade elite political circles

Conventional, sexually exclusive marriage contract is disfavored : yuvatipathi-7 Mangala in bhava-6 (dissolution of trust); Mangala = also the ruler of navamsha-7 .

  • nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu is also uncomfortable for conventional stability as the native does not find his inner balance (Zukra)

  • He will project this inner awkwardness (nichha-Zukra = imbalance-seeking-a-remedy) upon the partner, finding her unattractive.

  • Ironically then due to Rahu the caldron of desire,he will feel a great hunger for this unsatisfying (nichha-Zukra) thing: pursuing even more exotic and unbalanced women . However, the parivartamsha of Zukra + Budha makes the spouse very clever and the union is helpful in many ways.

Harding's political career and presidency were rather undistinguished overall, with the salient exception of his USA-Senatorial support for the women's suffrage (right to vote) movement. Most commentators think he was powerfully motivated to take a positive position on women's suffrage by his ambitious, dynamic and outspoken wife.

  • The 19th Amendment giving American women the Right to Vote was passed in August, 1920, during Harding's campaign for President. Despite his lackluster record in public service, Harding was very popular with women ( Rahu + Zukra lagnesha) and their interest in him seemed to carry the election despite his being a nearly complete 'unknown' in the national political field.

  • As karmesha-10 uttama-Shani gives high office

  • As dharmesha-9 uttama-Shani is also powerful to dissolve that high position

Thula graha Budha maraka rules-2 28 deg, maraka yuvatipathi-7 Mangala 21 deg, Surya 20 deg, Shani 13 deg - therefore Shani a natural maraka will do the bidding of the temporal marakas Budha and Mangala who have the higher degrees in Thula.

  • samchara Rahu-Ketu at the time of sudden death = Rahu-Ketu-Singha-Kumbha - Ketu transiting bhava-10 contributes confusion, apathy, and possibly despair over conditions of public leadership and high office. Gochara Rahu in 4, 12th-from-natal place, creates intense feelings of loss in the heart.
