Masculine Nativities

Visaka * Radha

BPL commentary

For Visaka fellows, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.

Thula pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles (Zukra) which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm (Guru) . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.

Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Zukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Thula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick (due to Guru rules 3-6).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

"... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

1959: Dwight David Eisenhower, POTUS-34

Eisenhower had a 35-year military career. He served as a military officer in Washington D.C. policy making positions, and he worked as a strategic planner during both WW-I and WW-II. Yet he was always a historian, strategist, and tactician; never a combat soldier.

Eisenhower never fought even a single day in ctive combat. He graduated from the Army officer school West Point Academy 1915, and until the 1940's he continued to receive more and more military trainings.

His continuing education, with military paid research and historical studies, gave Eisenhower a professor's level of theoretical interpretative and collegial committee governance skills. During WW-I, he remained stateside working as a trainer. By the standard promotional structure (not by battlefield merit or acts of bravery) he was eventually promoted to the rank of General Commander.

Allied troops were intimidated by the superior strength of Axis forces in Europe. It looked horribly certain that Axis would win. Eisenhower was considered to be the one man who could possibly undertake the extraordinarily detailed, tightly coordinated tactical and strategic planning that could be the key to overcome a powerful enemy.

With zero combat experience, Eisenhower was named supreme commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He did visit the soldiers in the field, but was quickly whisked away from any active fighting.

Until the stunning and largely unexpected success of D-Day in 1944, even Eisenhower did not believe that his elaborate orchestrations could work.

  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, radiantly descriptive


Dad was a mechanical engineer Surya-yuti-Budha-uttama . He worked in dairy farm operations Surya-Kanya and parented a large family.


Much of Eisenhower's career activity was international in scope and classified in category. He also spent much time living in dormitory barracks. Surya-Kanya occupies the invisible, cloistered 12th-from-Chandra

  • Chandra-Thula * comforted by rhythmic negotiation of agreements
  • Chandra in Swatika * comforted by risky alliances * protectors of shape-shifting negotiation, fascinating bargains, opportunistic arrangements
  • Chandra in classroom-12 * comfort in contemplation, familiar with interiority, research enclosures, soothed by imagination, routine intuition, Other-Worldly spaces, privacy; undulating dreams


Mom was a private person who disliked the limelight Chandra-12. She was Ike's strong supporter.

Career in defense

Chandra rules the career-directing, emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = Karkata-9, defense, national boundaries, ethnic culture, transportation, shipping

Eisenhower served as a high-level defender of the American majority way of life, particularly the cultural (Chandra) values of pluralism, democratic governance and participatory economic systems. During a lifetime military career, General Eisenhower never fought a single day on the battlefield. Rather, he protected and defended from an elite mentalistic strategic perspective, signaled by atmakaraka Surya in logical-strategic Kanya-Chitra.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

7th-from-Chandra-12 = bhava-6 disagreement, ailment, military

Reportedly Ike and Mamie did not agree on very much. They were ready to divorce on several occasions. Typical of bhava-6, Mamie suffered from numerous medical conditions including constitutional depression, hormonal imbalance, and possible alcoholism.

Most of their adult life was spent separately. Ike obtained official signatures to secure a series of foreign military postings, all of which were deemed unsuitable for accompanying family. During his WW-2 Supreme Commander assignment, Ike was stationed for several years in a highly secure location in southern England. Although Mamie petitioned for a marital visit during those 3 years, Ike denied permission. He was said to be conducting an private affair-du-coeur with his female driver during those tumultuous years

Ike's chronic dissatisfaction with the state of his marriage is indicated by Chandra-12 ++ Zukra-yuti-Ketu. Nevertheless the couple had much shared vision due to Guru rules Ike's Visaka radical lagna ++ Guru rules Mamie's Purvabhadrapada lagna.

The wealthy socialite daughter of a prominent town businessman, Mamie was dedicated to promoting Ike's career, and her enthusiastic large-scale social entertaining skills proved key to his continuous ascent through the military hierarchy.

For the first time in decades, Ike and Mamie lived together consistently in the Whitehouse after he turned 62, albeit he traveled frequently. Republican Party spin doctors framed them as "America's Grandparents" and heartwarming photos of the doting couple were promoted through the media. Yet. away from the cameras, they spent a minimal amount of time together. With Ike immobilized by poor health following numerous strokes and heart-attacks, they retired to a rural Pennsylvania farm. He died 9 years later, and Mamie moved into a Washington D.C. retirement home for military wives where she resumed socializing

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

lagnesha * co-ruler of Vrischika

  • Mangala-Dhanuzya * vigorous pursuit of humanistic worldview* push toward doctrinal expansion, proactive teaching-preaching, philosophical globalism
  • Mangala in bhava-2 * drive toward values lineage, pursuit of treasuries, energized face-speech-song, aggressive family hoarding, vigorous capitalization-banking, storage, assets, conservation, family dynamics, acquisitive conquests

  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy and ecology, distributive and associative networks * social participation linkage, describer of friendship  and voluntary connections , explainer of gains and goals, delivers instructions for interlinked systems, talks about large assemblies + webs of community 
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant confidence, message of willpower and charisma, talkative father

Budha-uttama-11 rules 8-11.

Supreme Commander Eisenhower never fought even one day in combat. He was an expert strategic and tactical planner, administrator, report-writer, and manager par excellence.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Makara-Draco * nichha * much social structure, many rules, materialistic beliefs, doctrine of rank and structure
  • Guru in bhava-3 * many messages, much commerce, many photographs, many publications, many sibling-cousins, much publication, many tours, frequent business trips, many sales, numerous discussions, much cohort interaction

Guru rules 6th-from-Chandra emotional stress

Guru rules Ike's Visaka radical lagna ++ Guru rules Mamie's Purvabhadrapada lagna

Guru-3 nichha rules 2-5

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Vrizchika * appreciation of penetrating discovery, pleasures of covert power, enjoys hidden assets, aesthetic of occult secrecy
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; graciously feminine qualities of the appearance, enjoys athletic, vigorous physical equity, appreciation of new birth * identified with partnership
  • Zukra-yuti-Ketu * gracious dissolution, dispersed beauty, sweet surrender, empty negotiated unions, disintegrating contracts

Due to Zukra-yuti-Ketu-2 Dwight and Mamie spent more time apart during their marriage than they spent together, as General Eisenhower pursued a peripatetic military career.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Simbha * old entitlements, old drama, pressured heart, imposed politics, proletarian entertainments, must do ceremony with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-10 * (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious  responsibilities. One must govern the old order. Must maintain the dignity of reputation. Cautious, conventional leadership. Tense=ion in governance roles. Chronic weighty executive duties, heavy work portfolio sustains the social hierarchy; Oppressed by lack of freedom to choose social policies..Resistance to new rules. Resentment toward changes in authority. Intolerance toward unconventional leaders.. Governance fatigue. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as president, director, boss, governor, mayor.

Shani-10 career occupies the economically fruitful 11th-from-Chandra

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

  • Rahu-Vrizabha * uttama * craving for preserved collections, treasure-hoards * mask of historic conservatism; fascinated by banking, hoarding * seeks special importance via accrued values, via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) stored acquisitions
  • Rahu in bhava-7 * in swabhava of Suave Zukra, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual arrangements, amplified alliances, marriages, vows, agreements; desires a special, important, brokerage role in non-standard negotiations, deal-making, match-making, contracts, and trusts. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious partners (personal and professional). Rahu the Poseur may pose as the Perfect Partner, a middleman, a bargainer, a diplomat, an arranger, an agreeable advocate. Powerful placement for career position via instrumental alliances.

Risk-rewarding Rahu occupies the secretive, camouflaged 8th-from-Chandra. Eisenhower's most powerful, over-reaching activities occurred in extremely dangerous diplomatic environments.


lagnesha * co-ruler of Vrischika

  • Ketu-Vrizchika * uttama * dissociates from hidden empowerments, incomplete discovery, empty secrets, dissolute penetrations, not limited by catastrophic change, ignores restriction on initiations, applies exploratory initiative to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-1 * wanders from the fleshly container, disperses coherently unique identity, ambivalent toward the power of muscular movement, absent from embodiment, other-defined chameleon, irrelevance of the personality
  • Zukra-yuti-Ketu * surrendered arrangements, empty promises, disconnected relationships, unsustainable contracts, apathetic music, dissatisfaction

During WW-2, Ike was constantly negotiating, cooperating, and bargaining with the leaders of many warring countries. Similar to POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln , POTUS-34 Eisenhower looked tired but hopeful while representing the unthinkably brutal cost of a lasting peace

Ketu the Annihilator is exceptionally strong in Shad-Bala

As lagnesha * co-ruler of Vrischika, dissociative Ketu gains considerable strength in lagna.

Faced with the increasingly powerful Axis forces, especially their secret weapons, during WW-II -- and predictions from all sides expecting the enemy to win -- Eisenhower would have needed to contemplate deathly catastrophe and make his calculations for it = Ketu in 3rd-from-Budha

Usually there is at least one match of each partner's Chandra to an important axis in their spouse's nativity.

Feminine Nativities

BPL commentary

High forehead. The majority of Purvabhadra nativities are wanderers.

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

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patronage from the civilizations of Pegasus.

Guru-ruled Aja-eka-pada ladies are often excellent dancers.

Kumbha pada 1-2-3 expresses Guru's rulership of 2-collections, affluence ++ 11-revenues, friendships. Guru-and-Shani are mutually neutral. Pada 1-2-3 ladies are found at the overlap between Guru's financial-social expansions (2-11) and Shani's ability to bridge the physical-astral worlds. They are often involved in large-scale social economic connectivity which has both a public and a private dimension, such as international government or corporate aid. They can also be social scientific theorists and writers. Generally their husbands are involved in large-systems work.

Meena pada-4 expresses Guru's rulership of 1-embodiment ++ 10-leadership, reputation, Guru rules both Purvabhadra nakshatra ++ Meena rashi, creating a concentrated effect of Guru in this unique pada. Their husbands are generous teacher. Pada-4 is less oriented to financial affluence and more attuned to visionary truth. These women become leaders in Guru-type wisdom fields such as divinity, philosophy, spiritual healing, clairsentient understanding, envisioning,, or ancestor guidance.

Themes of broad scope, theoretical understanding, and visionary imagination may contextualize Ajaekapada's terrestrial experience Applies also to Chandra in Purvabhadrapada

Surya-10 rules 7-contractual relationships, peer agreements, bargains

Surya resides in 10th-from-Chandra = emotional affinity for political career

Surya-10 in 10th-from-10th indicates that Mamie was a careerist in her own right, although she advocated (7) for her husband and ascended with him as a team.

Mamie endured a long list of health conditions, in including constitutional depression, hormonal imbalance, possible alcoholism, a chronic inner ear imbalance, and oft-noted expressions of jealousy.

In addition, her marriage partner was unsatisfied and frequently away. They discussed divorce frequently but in expectation of his promotion to high visibility ranks were advised to forestall that career-killing decision.


Mom was a housewife and mother. Mother and daughter had a long-lasting but somewhat fraught relationship. Mom survived until Mamie was 63 years old.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

7th-from-Chandra-1 = bhava-7 Simha.

Mamie often said that she belonged to a two-person career. She is famously quoted as saying "I have one career, and that is Dwight Eisenhower".

Mamie suffered numerous health issues (Chandra-rogesha-1). Dwight's marital life was complicated by his Zukra-yuti-Ketu which creates distancing and disorientation with women. Nevertheless there are strong connections between the spouses, such asIke's Visaka lagna well-attuned to Mamie's Purvabhadrapada lagna, and his Chandra-Thula well-aligned with her Chandra-Kumbha. Despite decades of affairs and disappointments, the couple enjoyed an underlying friendship, and they avoided divorce. As a public pair, they emphasized shared career goals and the need for a harmonious facade in support of his career-pinnacle POTUS role.

In the glee of postwar affluence, and general relaxation after the prolonged stress of WW-2, Mamie's legendary big dance parties quickly became the social center of WDC.

Mamie's large-scale entertainments offered both showcase opportunities for USA musical talent and spin-doctor approved, American-branded, good clean fun (her Chandra-1).

On more intimate occasions when a smaller group would be gathered to mix socializing with politics and deal-making, Eisenhower's VPOTUS Richard Nixon played the piano and sang show-tunes.
