QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.
"Outstanding characteristic of these people
They are awkward and gauche in their manners
This attitude militates against success in life
These people should live less introspectively
They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Bess and Harry Truman were the same age. They met in 5th grade and became friends, attending school together until they both graduated.
Their relationship continued until they were 34, when they married in 1919. One daughter was born in 1924. Marriage partner = 7th-from-Chandra-4
Mrs. Bess Truman and her daughter Margaret Truman in the Whitehouse, late 1940's.
Surya* pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka
Dad was a farmer and livestock dealer. The family moved frequently for agricultural reasons, and the lost their farm during the Depression.
Truman was a Machine politician who worked in a political environment beset by high levels of corruption and scandal. Still, he remained largely independent of the vulgarity surrounding him * aristocratic uttama-Surya-10
Harry Truman was exceptionally close to his mother. Mom was continuously supportive of Harry in every aspect of his life. Mom stayed alive for a long time, supporting Harry until he was 63 years old.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
7th-from-Chandra-4 = bhava-10 leadership
Childhood bhava-4 ruled by Zukra-12
Until age 33, Truman lived in political and economic obscurity. Reflecting the strong maternal roots of Chandra-4, his foundational years were dedicated to fighting in WW-1 France (Chandra defense), doing heavy agricultural labor (Chandra farming), and living in Depression-era hobo camps while variously employed (Chandra camps). He had a strict childhood defined by his parents Protestant Ethic, and did not attend college (ruler of 4 in 12) but was substantially self-taught via personal reading.
His fair complexion and pleasant appearance was influenced by the pale coloring of Zukra-ruled Chandra-4. However his potty-mouth was directly a function of nichha-Kuja-1 drishti to Chandra-4.
QUOTATION from B.V. Raman , 300 Combinations, p 304
Yogakaraka rules 5-politics-karakamsha ++ 10-leadership
karmesha Kuja-1 indicates top position = warlike, even vicious, executive action
QUOTATION from B.V. Raman, A Catechism of Astrology. p. 30
Kuja rules karakamsha Vrischika-5 * known primarily as the authorizing personality behind the USA nuclear attack upon Nagasaki and Hiroshima which was the defining act of his political career (5)
Early and voracious reader of popular-audience history books * Parivartamsha between Budha- and Zukra makes an avid reader
Truman used the speech (Budha) of the common man (Shani) . A capable independent reader but lacking a college education (ruler of 4 schooling in 12-dissolution) Truman was familiar with written forms of university-register language but he was not raised around those who spoke in the educated style.
Although Truman was a career politician and he was not distinctively honest, he was often hailed as an honest man because he spoke in the agricultural style, eschewing the conceptual and logical vocabulary of the educated classes. Thus he seemed more accessible to the working folk. Rahu-3 communications "seem" common-Rahu-Kanya.
Guru-1-rogesha is greatly expanded to the state of military slaughter by nichha-Kuja-1 yogakaraka
Budha-Guru period * Guru rules 12th-from-10th containing Ketu-9 annihilation Alaxmi
Uttama-Guru drishti into bhava-5 delivered just one child = his daughter Margaret. She was a noted pianist, and dedicated to both of her parents. 5th-from-Chandra = bhava-8 suggesting that Margaret knew secrets.
Guru rules the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra ++ Brihaspati rules aristhana 6-war. Truman's Military battle service in WW-I was intensely promoted as key to his political identity as a man who understood military realities. During FDR's years of failing health, and considering that FDR had no military service record, Truman made many of the detailed military budget decisions which were then trustingly approved by a distracted FDR.
Guru rogesha * Guru-yuti-Mangala-nichha * Budha-Guru period Aug-1945
Truman 'dropped the bomb' on Japan in August-1945, killing and maiming millions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The WW-2 Japanese military had already killed an estimated 6-10 million people in Asia, including a genocide of approximately 6 million Chinese and Southeast Asian peoples. Truman stood firm in his decision to attack Japan, despite some military opinions that the Allies had already won the war..
"I knew what I was doing when I stopped the war ... I have no regrets and, under the same circumstances, I would do it again." ~~ Truman, 1963
Purportedly Poor eyesight * Guru rogesha occupies-1 * Guru rules bhava-6 ++ 6th-from-Chandra
Truman's eyesight was compromised by childhood diphtheria (6) Yet, Truman managed to serve as a WW-1 military commander and worked as a popular 'machine' politician wherein remembering names and faces is critical to the job. Guru-yuti-Mangala-yogakara ++ Surya-Meza rules 2-eyes. His spectacles successfully corrected most of the deficiency and gave him a distinctive, scholarly appearance.
uttama-Guru-1 + nichha-yogakaraka-Mangala-1 = a powerfully aggressive (Kuja) philosophically expansive (Guru) rogesha
Truman is best known internationally for imposing the conditions of horrible death by radiation poisoning upon countless victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki . "Dropped the Bomb" during WWII *
However in his homeland (USA) Truman is remembered as a Great Protector (Guru-Karkata) who ensured that even when the American military was was weakened and depleted from years of exhausting war on two sides of the world, that the once-fierce enemy (Japan) would be fully destroyed.
Wife Bess's father committed suicide when she was a teenager = 9th-from-Zukra-12 = bhava-8
Despite Budha's Shani-yuti fluency handicap, Truman was nevertheless blessed with a gracious Zukra parivartamsha Budha. His quotations were and still are very popular due to the balanced, simple, but yet elegant style of his aphorisms.
Zukra-12 retreat rules bhava-4 = A long retirement during Zukra Mahadasha
After ending his POTUS service with a sudden lifestyle downshift during Ketu-Rahu period, Truman lived for another 20 years, to age 88. Despite his panicked announcements during Ketu Mahadasha that he would be going on government relief due to poverty (Ketu emptiness) in fact Zukra ruler of 11 provided several sources of income, including pensions and his Memoires. He died in Zukra-Budha period.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani rules Kumbha-Dhaniztha swamsha
Shani rules 8 ++ Shani occupies the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra
Shani randhresha * Budha-Shani period = election of 1948
shocking win of POTUS-33 against the predicted winner and favorite, Dewey
Truman's public approval rating at election time stood at an unthinkable 36%. Shani intakes drishti of Rahu-3. He rallied, making constant election speeches with a highly Rahu theme = civil rights.
Many commentators of his day would have asserted that he obtained the presidency by accident. Truman was a largely unknown US Senator selected as a vice-presidential candidate to run with POTUS-32 Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1944 election. FDR died four months after starting his third term, making Truman POTUS-33.
Truman made the very controversial decision to end the Pacific portion of World-War-2 by authorizing the atom-bomb drop onto Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan. It was widely believed that voters would not support Truman against the well heeled and educated Thomas Dewey.
The nation was shocked but happy that Truman was Legally elected (Shani) and reaches the Goal (11)
Modest but steady hidden income
Shani-11 rules 8 = hidden earnings from governance roles including bribery and other corrupted wealth* for example, Mrs. Truman was said to have received gifts into her private home not registered with the public view. When he left government service he left the relationship between 11 revenue and 8 secrecy.
Acquired national fame through military spending reform in 1943 * Budha (accounting) yuti Shani (government) in 11-economics
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery) *
Ketu-Rahu period * from one of the most powerful, respected men in the world to an almost-broke guy living in a small house in the Midwest with his very elderly mother-in-law
At Truman's age 69, in 1952, POTUS-33 job was finished. After decades of government service ending with seven years at the highest levels of responsibility as POTUS and Commander in Chief, Truman returned to private life of near-penury. He was able to earn from sale of local land (sale of lands Guru rules 3rd-from-4th) and from his Memoires.
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu in 6th-from-Chandra shows that his mom was considerably resilient to health challenges. She lived until Harry turned 63. It also suggests that the usual imbalance between 4 (mother) and 9 (father) is somewhat more
Ketu Mahadasha * age 64.8 until 71.8 = 1949-1956
Truman's only elected term of office was 1948-1952. These four years were plagued by scandals and controversies, the suicide of his Secretary of Defense, and a 22% approval rating, among many other collapses. Truman appeared to become defensive and his wittiness seemed vulgar to many.
Ketu occupies 11-from-11 ++ Shani-11
Ketu gives Economic Emptiness from Ketu-Rahu
until 1956 begins Zukra Mahadasha brings royalties + pension
After leaving the US Presidency in their elder years during Ketu-Rahu period, Truman and his wife Bess had very little personal wealth and were nearly impoverished until the Congress wrote a law creating a pension for ex-presidents. (Previous presidents had always hailed from wealthy families; the law was never needed before the humble-born Truman held the office.)
Despite his years of work in the public service, Truman and his wife Bess retired from the presidency into a state of penury. Historically it had been presumed that only the independently financially privileged whose retirement would be cushioned by investments would hold the highest national offices. Truman was the first surviving "test case" proving otherwise (other men of modest means had served as president but they had died in office or shortly afterward).
Zukra-Zukra Mahadasha begins 1956, financial improvement
Royalties from his Memoires began to flow in 1956. Also, Congress created presidential pensions in 1958. His Ketu-Mahadasha emptiness dissolved and he was well cared for until death age 88.
