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

BPL commentary: For Uttarabhadrapada natives, the disposition of Professor Shani considerably affects the outcome. Elder persons and officials may be especially influential.

"...most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Prominent Features of the Nativity:




JFK with elder brother, father, and self (far right) at the family compound in Palm Beach, Florida

Uttarabhadrapada males are typically born into significant paternal wealth

Surya * pitrikaraka

Surya rules 10th navamsha = politics celebrity

Vrishabha (treasuries) Guru + Zukra + Surya occupy the career-defining 10th from Chandra


JFK's father was originally a working-class Irish immigrant to USA. The father's life exemplified extraordinary financial success via seen-and-unseen devices. The father's capital wealth emerged mainly from investment in the port of Boston's shipping infrastructure. During Prohibition, bootlegged liquors (Zukra sweets, alcoholic drinks) were a central commodity shipped through the transport systems of USA water ports.

Pitrikaraka Surya co-tenants with lagnesha Vrishabha-Guru. From Meena lagna, swakshetra Zukra becomes the secretive ruler of 3-8 suggesting the financial expansion (Vrishabha-Guru) of commercial business (3) involving sweets and liquors (Zukra-Vrishabha).

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

10th from Chandra Career Honor Respect Leadership

  • a powerful collection of financial, historical, and values-lineage graha in 10th-from-Chandra = Guru-yuti-Surya + Guru-yuti-Zukra
  • pitrikaraka Surya + Brihaspati + dhanakaraka Zukra-3

Chandra-Simha-6 * 7th-from-Chandra-6 suggests that the first life-partner would be engaged with foreign lands and reside largely in her imagination. Ms. Jacqueline Kennedy's nativity shows Kumbha lagna representing her husband's Kumbha 7th-from-Chandra; her 7th radical bhava is Simha matching his Simha-Chandra.

In his wife's nativity, her Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3, Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra-3 suggests that her first husband was an icon of dharmasthana-9 (politics, doctrine) but perhaps not much attached to the marriage

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

challenging mutual drishti of Shani-with-Mangala

Mangala Mahadasha enters politics

Budhana * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

challenging mutual drishti between Shani-and-Mangala

Shani rules Uttarabhadrapada lagna

John F. Kennedy is said to have been the materially wealthiest POTUS, although that honor may also properly belong to POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington .

It is not known for certain whether the Goldhord Title belongs to Kennedy or Washington, because much of the Kennedy treasury is privately held.

Uttarabhadra born = exceptionally financially privileged and well-placed international diplomat broker-banker father = bhava-2 = Guru + Surya-yuti-Zukra.

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
