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

BPL commentary: For Uttarabhadrapada natives, the disposition of Shani considerably affects the outcome.

"...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."

Uttarabhadrapada males are typically born into significant paternal wealth

Surya * pitrikaraka


The father of POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy 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 were a central commodity shipped through the transport systems of USA water ports. Pitrikaraka Surya co-tenants with lagnesha Vrishabha-Guru and the secretive ruler of 3-8 swakshetra Zukra suggesting the financial expansion (Vrishabha-Guru) of commercial business (3) involving sweets and liquors (Zukra-Vrishabha).

POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F Kennedy hailed from a notable American financial family

Chandra * matrikaraka


  • 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

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 wealth is privately held.
