  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni 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 Denebola.

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

rulers of 2, 3, 8, 9, 11, and 12 occupy bhava-10. Coolidge was a career politician and bureaucrat who climbed the ladder of party politics from town councilmen to city mayor to state governor to VPOTUS to POTUS.

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge * Chandra-yuti-Zukra + Mangala-yuti-Surya (10) ** Chandra-10 parivartamsha Budha-11

Chandra-Mithunaya-10 parivartamsha karmesha Budha-Karkata-11

Coolidge held a series of local, city, and state official positions. Except for one School Board election (which he lost because his new marriage had not yet produced children) he won every contest - often running unopposed.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Coolidge was a great friend to capitalist owners and an enemy of the common worker's struggle for higher wages. He held that "winner take all" capitalism was the best economic policy.

Kuja is a challenging graha for the Kanya lagna. Coolidge had plenty of catastrophic change in his life and naturally was a keeper of confidential information (8). Yet his career was free from scandal. Kuja-10 may represent the boss POTUS-29 Teapot Dome Warren G. Harding who was immersed in scandal and died from a stress heart-attack.

Mangala is free of ashtangata-harana. Chandra-yuti-Mangala signifies significant profit - through fair means or foul. Mangala also rules 10th navamsha career = Vrizchika suggesting that shocks and upheavals, as well as secrecy, would have a role in his career (Hardings shocking death, inter alia)

  • Chandra-Mangala yoga is exceptionally driven toward personal profit, based on an emotional conviction that "competition" (fair or not) is the key value in life."Fair" is a value of Zukra. Unless Zukra is also strong, the competition may be as nasty as necessary in order to reveal the natural dominator.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Chandra-Mithunaya-10 parivartamsha karmesha Budha-Karkata-11

Coolidge was not an ostentatiously rich man. However, his economic ideology (Budha karmesha-10 in 11 ) promoted deregulation of marketplace relationships strongly influenced an entire nation for 6 years.

  • Coolidge presided during the "Roaring Twenties " of USA financial wildness, when regulatory negligence seemed to prevail in financial markets. Chandra-Arudra-10 parivartamsha Budha-11-Puna

  • Many historians consider Coolidge's laissez-faire economic policies to have plunged the country (and much of the financial world) into a deep monetary depression, soon after the end of his six-year administration.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru in bhava-11
  • Guru-Karkata * uttama rules 10th-from-Chandra
  • Guru-yuti-Budha
  • rules 10th-from-Chandra suggesting a career based in theoretical, ideological belief (Guru). Further, Guru-11 focuses that career-defining paradigm of belief into activities of economic systems. Coolidge was a devotee of laissez-faire economics as proposed in the marketplace behavioral principle theories of Adam Smith. These theories have been both proven and disproven; those who adhere to the principles are expressing belief.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra-10 Rahu-Vrizabha -uttama in ideology-9

Zukra-10 suffers moudhya-dosha (weakened)

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka atmakaraka

Shani rules Kumbha swamsha = science, economics, marketplace linkages, , social networks, communities, connections

The family home of POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge had neither running water nor electricity. Shani-4 is frugal in matters of housing and education. After basic schooling, Coolidge completed a youthful apprenticeship in Law; frugal Shani-4 did not attend too-costly law school.

7th-from-Chandra-10 = Shani-4. Coolidge's Shani receives drishti of four talkative Mithuna graha Chandra, Surya, Mangala, and Zukra. Mrs. Coolidge was a trained teacher (4) of the deaf (Shani-Dhanuzya) and a lifelong advocate of deaf welfare. She enjoyed polite entertaining and her educated (4) Vermont manners were an essential asset to Coolidge's career. However she did like quietude (Shani-4).

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Rahu-Vrizabha * uttama resides in ideology-9 Rahu in bhava-9

A passionate ideologue believer in the theory of laissez-faire economics (which was naturally the favored theory of most robber-baron elites in his day) Coolidge was virulently against organized labor and he opposed government involvement in social welfare provisioning. He gained national fame from his oppressive handling of the Boston Police Labor Strike. As economic policy, he favored exploitive and anti-labor programs - see empowered Rahu in 6/8 from 4, suggesting beliefs that are adversarial to security, housing, and customary folkways of life.

During Shani-Rahu period, Mr. Coolidge's career benefitted from violently suppressing locally organized labor strikes (Rahu in 6th-from-4th) .

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of pitrikaraka Professor Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians celebrities, dramatists, game-players, and persons of brilliant entitlement are especially influential.

Guidance from Denebola.

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

Have Faith in Massachusetts as delivered by Calvin Coolidge to the Massachusetts State Senate, 1914 "Do the day's work. If it be to protect the rights of the weak, whoever objects, do it. If it be to help a powerful corporation better to serve the people, whatever the opposition, do that. Expect to be called a stand-patter, but don't be a stand-patter. Expect to be called a demagogue, but don't be a demagogue. Don't hesitate to be as revolutionary as science. Don't hesitate to be as reactionary as the multiplication table. Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong. Don't hurry to legislate. Give administration a chance to catch up with legislation."

Calvin Coolidge on the White House lawn in 1924 with four representatives of the Osage Tribe; on the occasion of passage of the Indian Citizenship Act of June-1924

The Coolidge Effect

Mr. Coolidge's nativity has a busy situation in bhava-7 and much company with Zukra

"The Coolidge effect, whereby males (and to a lesser extent females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners, even after refusing sex from prior but still available sexual partners, is named after the former President. Behavioral endocrinologist Frank A. Beach first mentioned the term "Coolidge effect" in publication in 1955, crediting one of his students with suggesting the term at a psychology conference.[161] He attributed the neologism to:

an old joke about Calvin Coolidge when he was President … The President and Mrs. Coolidge were being shown (separately) around an experimental government farm. When [Mrs. Coolidge] came to the chicken yard she noticed that a rooster was mating very frequently. She asked the attendant how often that happened and was told, "Dozens of times each day." Mrs. Coolidge said, "Tell that to the President when he comes by." Upon being told, the President asked, "Same hen every time?" The reply was, "Oh, no, Mr. President, a different hen every time." President: "Tell that to Mrs. Coolidge."

~~ The joke appears in a 1978 book (A New Look at Love, by Elaine Hatfield and G. William Walster, p. 75), citing an earlier source (footnote 19, Chapter 5)"

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
