After serving as VPOTUS for eight years under POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon campaigned with vigorous ideological speeches in the old stumping, handshaking style.
Yet despite his Good Old Party credentials, Nixon lost the Nov-1960 election to a charming young senator who knew about charisma, television cosmetics and eye contact: POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy
famously met his life partner POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon during a community theatre production - where she sang a role (her Chandra-yuti-Zukra). He was immediately smitten by her "value" (Zukra) to his career displayed via her understanding of her own worth. She had worked her way through college and was the master of her own time. (The future Mrs. Nixon however was more cautious, and she continued to date other men.)

Distinctive features of the Nativity
"Richard Nixon, age 15, holding his violin, circa 1927-1928. Richard Nixon learned to play the violin, clarinet, saxophone, piano, and the accordion. When he was 12, Richard was sent to live and study music with his mother’s sister in central California. He returned home six months later and eventually discontinued his studies, but his love of music continued. " Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Museum
Surya rules the volatile, identity-transforming 8th-from-Chandra
a plethora of graha in 6, including Mula-group Kuja-Budha-Guru but Surya occupies musical Purvazadha
Nixon promoted an image of his father as a simple local green-grocer who served as a vendor of fresh vegetables and other food supplies to the local neighborhood. The situation in Nixon's Dhanuzya rashi shows that the father's personality and activities were much more complex. It is possible, although not a matter of public record, that his father may have been involved in certain unsavory activities due to Surya in bhava-6 accompanied by three Mula-graha.
Nixon had a surprisingly strong interest in musical theatre, due to the Purvazadha Surya but also due to his Shani parivartamsha Zukra. Purvaphalguni-Chandra in Simha-navamsha is also a performer. (Richard and Pat met in a musical theatre production).
Four humanistic, globalist, philosophical graha in Dhanunzya-6 = Surya + Budha + Kuja + Guru
POTUS Nixon confused the observing world by committing a documented series of paranoia-driven felony crimes at the highest level of public trust. At the same time, he was vigorously promoting advanced global diplomacy that melted decades of non-cooperation with eastern governments and effectively opened USA markets to the China Trade.
Grievance narrative (6)
Nixon recounted his childhood as plagued by overwork and unfair competition from others who had more privilege, more resources, and better life foundations.
As an adult, POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon defined himself as a rough West-Coast outsider who was barred from the easy path to political ascension enjoyed by the "white-shoe" East-Coast establishment.
Candescent Chandra-7 rules radical Karkata lagna
lagnesha Chandra-7 = lawyer = identified with public roles = negotiator, diplomat, go-between, contract manager, public governance official. 7 = negotiations, contracts, diplomacy, agreement, balance of mutual interests.
Chandra rules 7th-from-Chandra signifying the importance of marriage as a foundation of the identity. Published after his death, Richard Nixon's love letters to Pat show that he was deeply needy and emotionally attached to his wife.
Nixon's mother was profoundly dedicated to the hursing care of two of her fatally sick sons. Shani in 5th-from-Chandra shows the mother's dutiful efforts toward her children. Yet even though she abandoned him for several years of his childhood while focusing upon an ill sibling (who died) he never stopped praising his sainted mother .
Typical of Chandra-7, Nixon remained deeply attached to his mother throughout his life. I
Nixon sanctified his mother's life to the point of hagiography, using anecdotes about her maternal virtues in most of his political speeches, presumably as a form of self-validation. Chandra lagnesha.
Marriage assessed via 7th-from-Chandra-7
Typical of Karkata nativities, Nixon married an elder spouse. Pat was born in 1912 while Richard was born in 1913.
POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon's parents had required their children to be farm workers from the beginning. Pat took care of everyone including nursing her dying mom. After her mom died her age 13 Pat took on the caretaker duties for her surviving dad and brothers. When her dad died, her age 17, she started working in secretarial roles where she took care of the business.
Richard Nixon detected her caretaker powers. He needed a woman who was sheltering, nourishing, and protective, but also organized and businesslike with secret-keeping capability = Zukra-Kumbha-8 parivartamsha fundraising, obligatory networking-Shani-11.
POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon needed a mothering mate. He was was looking for a caretaker spouse and he knew that Pat had the right stuff. When he found Pat, he would not release his hold (Azlesa) until she accepted his offer of marriage.
As the story goes, he courted her persistently and would not release (Azlesa) his claim upon her attentions. Finally free of her childhood burdens, young adult Pat insisted on her right to date other men. Nevertheless, Richard was convinced that she would soon recognize him as her lifepartner. Until she finally relented of her independence, Nixon would drive her to meetings with other men.
May observers of their quizzical marriage opined that Pat Nixon counterbalanced Richard Nixon's aggrieved and accusing hair-trigger (Azlesa) with her steady, maternal presence. Overall her identity was reflexively identified with her husband, and Karkata-Meena provides a genuine affinity and mutual emotional engagement.
The Nixons shared a two-person career. Commentators have remarked that in the early decades of their marriage, Richard listened carefully to Pat's advice (Chandra-7 advisors). She was his primary counselor above all others. Until they arrived at what seemed to be the pinnacle of their joint career -- the POTUS years -- Pat worked diligently to support and protect (Chandra) her husband, travelling constantly with Richard during campaign season. She is said to have felt that he was vulnerable to negative influences, and she stationed herself as a bodyguard against people who did not like him (of whom there were many, Azlesa).
Chandra-Makara -7 Socially onservative, comforting Public Image of the Lifepartner
For decades "Plastic Pat" Nixon exemplified the modest but stylish mid-century fashions that came to be known as California Republican. Although she had a college diploma and a work history in business and retail sales, Pat's identity on the campaign trail was 100% dedicated, always-nourishing, Republican wife-and-mother. Chandra-7 + Shani yuvatipathi.
Where Nixon was stiff and defensive, Pat - an Uttaraphalguni actress and promoter who enjoyed life on stage - was flexible and friendly.
Yogakaraka Mangala and the Legend of Heroic Deeds (Kuja-Mula)
On the political campaign trail, Nixon developed a Mangala-Mula narrative recalling that he was expected to drive (Mangala-4) a truck to pick up (Budha, manual actions) vegetables from the farms before his daily high school classes began. Then he was expected to help with stocking and cleaning after classes were finished. Budha schedules, teamwork.
However as with many detailed features of Nixon's narrative, the public record shows that Nixon participated in several after-school activities such as music lessons and performances, debate practice and competitions, and internural sport, all of which would have overlapped with the daunting work tasks that Nixon claimed.
His teen work schedule was likely to have been much more forgiving; in fact, it appears unlikely that Nixon was required to do much more than common household chores. His life trajectory inclined in a privileged fashion from high school to college to law school, with no significant work duties, consistent with the upward social mobility of his family.
Budha occupies-6 + Budha rules-12 = Viparita Raja Yoga = Vimala Yoga
Viparita-Raja-yoga =Vi-mala yoga (unmarred, stain-less) Budha-6 rules 12 * prevents imprisonment
Mula-Budha-6 rules 6th-from-Chandra * capable of experiencing intensely jealousy
Budha rules Ketu-3 mentality = thought-process disorientation
Budha rules 3-12 from radical Karkata lagna
Budha rules the doctrinal, believing, credenda 9th-from-Chandra
Richard Nixon was said to have been deeply attached to his mother (Chandra-7) but also intensely jealous of her dedication to his siblings. Budha-6 siblings in rogasthana jealousy in 12th-from-Chandra provokes the dissolution of maternal care.
Typical of Azlesa nativities, Mr. Nixon had many enemies and many complaints = multiplier mulatrikona Guru-rogesha the many-maker yuti Budha. Over the span of his 30-year political career, Nixon vocalized a frequent and consistent victim narrative, arguing (Budha) that he had been mistreated, deprived, exploited, marginalized, disrespected, or robbed of his natural entitlements.
Since Mr. Nixon's first political campaign in California, Richard and Pat had worked and travelled always as a team.
...until the fateful Budha-Budha swabhukti, when Budha pulled the energy out of Chandra-7 lagnesha.
During the fateful days of his descent into crime and impeachment, during Budha-Budha swabhukti followed tragically Budha-Ketu surrender, Nixon had entered a Budha-Mula phase of high-risk behavior driven by paranoid fantasies (Budha rules-12 fantasies).
At onset of Budha-Budha swabhukti, he had stopped relying on Pat's advice, and shifted his trust to a band of miscreant males ( Budha-6 + Mangala) who preyed upon his phantom fears.
Vimala Yoga prevents Nixon from criminal convictions and prison. Drained of personal integrity by Budha-6 and refusing Pat's her motherly adviser protection, he was soon disgraced
Budha = Fantasy and Distant Lands
Even after resigning the presidency in a state of public disgrace, Nixon continued to insinuate himself into diplomatic roles. Despite having been stripped of all authorization, he could not let go of previous empowerments (Azlesa). For two decades following the collapse of his publicr eputation in the US, he lived in denial of all wrongdoing.
Observers have opined that Nixon's disordered narcissism (common in politicians) was deeply complicated by his uncommonly intense paranoid fantasies. Until his death, whenever he was questioned by journalists, Nixon was unable to accept even the suggestion that he personally might have failed to uphold the ethical standards of public office. He blamed (6) circumstances outside his control, the misdoings of others, and the poverty of his childhood inter alia . He never accepted moral responsibility for his own actions.
During Guru Mahadasha * 1936 until 1952
Although Nixon had been elected with the public trust, he expediently quit the six-year Senate position less than 2 years into the term of service, in order to serve as VPOTUS under Eisenhower.
Mula-Brihaspati rules 3-12 from both Chandra-Makara and Makara radical lagna.
Guru rules 4 graha: Surya-Budha-Kuja-Rahu. Further, Kuja drishti upon Rahu-4 ultimately amplifies Rahu's tendencies toward grandiosity. The challenge lies with the nihilist narratives of Mula, which have an erosive (12th) effect upon the contractual agreements sustained by Chandra rules-7.
Mula-Guru in bhava-12 rules Surya-Kuja-Budha and Rahu. It is a globalist placement but a deranged one, due to Ketu-9 rules Mula and Budha-Mula-yuti-Guru-Mula.
Nixon saw himself as a global humanist and theoretical explicator of the higher principles guiding the new world order. He was heavily involved in the vicious animosity of the Vietnam War, and commentators would say that most of his mistakes were caused by his principles. On the other hand, Nixon is often credited with having initiated the era of global cooperation by using his principles to manage two previously bitter enemies: USA and Communist China.
By the time of the Shani-Guru period, with Brihaspati located in 8th-from-Shani, Nixon had begun to succumb to the Mula-narrative of reckless disregard for consequences driven by a lifetime obsession with enemies (Budha-12-Mula rules 6-enemies).
POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon was known for his incredible persistence in the face of obstacles that seemed to him to be intentionally blocking his progress toward the top of the mountain. He expressed frustration, jealousy, and resentment that those with more treasure, more privilege, and better family connections seemed to have better results than himself (Budha conversation rules jealousy bhava-6). By tenacious persistence and eradicating certain enemies, Nixon did reach the top POTUS-37 But sadly at the onset of Shani-Guru chidradasha his shielding friend J. Edgar Hoover died, and Guru-12-Mula greatly expanded his paranoia. J. Edgar Hoover had been protecting everyone who was implicated in the Kennedy Assassination, including Nixon. Guru-12-Mula opened the floodgates to insane belief.
POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon had a remarkable cluster of four graha in bhava-12 animosity, distrust, crime: Surya randhresha + Mangala-yuti-Budha rogesha + Guru . The rulers of six bhava -- Mangala-yuti-Budha + Guru -- occupy the third pada of political Mula in 12 while Surya occupies musical, artistic Purvazadha. (Nixon was an accomplished musician.)
Despite his emotional certainty that he was born to be the boss (Chandra-1 rules 10th-from-10th) POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon was said to have been socially maladjusted and awkward in public. The aggrieved cluster of Mula-in-12 contributed to his reputation for being "sneaky" and added to his tendency to seem disconnected (Ketu) and off-balance.
Nixon struggled to appear relaxed and comfortable in his own skin, but internally he was dogged by a lifelong narrative of intense jealousy and victimization. His advisors arranged flattering photographs of Nixon having valuable experiences (usually with his tolerant, non-committal wife Pat). Yet on his own, Nixon seemed unfamiliar with the concept of "having fun". His "dark shadow" aura (Kuja-Budha-Guru-Mula-12) contributed to the public distrust, and he was not generally well-liked by his political colleagues. However he was deeply loyal to the Party (Makara-Chandra-1 and lagnesha Shani-5 political structures).
Nixon met his wife POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon in a community theatre production. They were both awarded roles in the performing cast, after a convincing audition. Pat sang her script.
Zukra rules 4 + 11
Zukra yogakaraka from Chandra-lagna, rules 5th-from-Chandra and 10th-from-Chandra
The childhood home ruled by Zukra-8 was likely a secretized environment for Nixon, characterized by the conditions of death (8). He later developed mental illness which may have been exacerbated by the shame he felt at the conditions of his home.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani rules Chandra-Makara-7 = Shani rules 10th-from-10th
Shani mahadasha * from 1952 until 1971
Nov-1952 Nixon was elected VPOTUS during * Shani-Shani swabhukti
During the first part of Shani Mahadasha, Nixon served as VPOTUS under POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower overtly disliked and distrusted Nixon. Yet the pragmatic, logical, system-building Eisenhower did not like dithering and had nothing but contempt for wastes of time. Eisenhower found it useful to deploy talkative Azlesa Nixon on tasks which involved socializing such as diplomatic meetings, parties, and more abstract discussions. Shani rules 10th-from-10th bosses, hierarchies, elites. Eisenhower was 23 years elder to Nixon. Ike had decades of experience holding elite decision-making roles. Eisenhower was accustomed to ruling strict military hierarchies and being obeyed.
Eisenhower had little respect for his junior factotum. But he acknowleged the value of Nixon's schmoozing, negotiating, conversing, discussing experience. Nixon liked music; he liked to drink and party.
During the Shani mahadasha, Nixon endured a brutal Sade Sati along with Shani contact to Kuja, Guru, Surya, Budha, Chandra, and Zukra -- all within the space of seven miserable years Feb-1958 until Apr-1967.
Ketu-SHani period = fleshdeath of his wife and lifetime collaborator, Pat Nixon.
Richard Nixon displayed a publically visible emotional collapse at her funeral, and many were saddened to see the outpouring of his terrible grief.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Meena-Rahu-9 = opportunistic use of doctrine. Nixon made instrumental use of his Quaker heritage, but typical of Rahu the man's personal behavior was not governed by the honest, puritanical Quaker principles.
Rahu-9 tries to appear important via the Paradigm of Belief and the Community of Believers. Roguish Rahu promoted Nixon's prayerfulness (Meena) however Nixon was not a churchgoer unless the publicity cameras were operating
Rahu is considerably strengthened by His ruler Guru-Mula-6 located in 10th-from-Rahu, suggesting advantage (Rahu) gained from criminal or illicit activities, and also ailments (6).
Rahu's ruler Guru-6 shows a confrontational, aggrieved image of the domains which are
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Detachment from the father in pitrasthana-9. Nixon was attached to his mother, but he had little to say about his dad.
According to his biographers, young Nixon was bullied by a deeply conflicted father. His dad did a doctrinal conversion into Quaker faith when he married Nixon's Quaker mother, but dad was not engaged in the credenda (Keta-9). Dad used both anger and distancing to intimidate his son.
Nixon did not practice his parents' catechism. His inherited Quaker doctrine was sufficient for political purposes (Ketu in 5th-from-5th).Nixon's critics complained that his Quaker identity was merely instrumentalized to project the impression of piety and principled convictions (Rahu-Meena camouflage of otherworldliness).
Nixon abandoned (Ketu) his Quaker creed by requesting active duty assignment in the WW-2 navy because as he himself reckoned it would be politically important to show active fighting. (But he was a bureaucrat in the navy so despite the nice uniform he was never in combat.)
Unlike those who actually practiced the principles of their Quaker faith, Nixon cursed vigorously, accepted military assignments, and authorized a greatly escalated carnage during the 1970's USA-Vietnam War.
Nixon's bodyguards reported that the aura of godliness promoted by Nixon's political handlers was a sham, and that after resigning in disgrace from POTUS-37 rank neither Richard nor Pat Nixon ever attended any church or place of public worship. Further the bodyguards claimed that Nixon swore vulgarly and drank heavily when POTUS-37 and afterward.
Exit during Ketu-Rahu period:
Following months of profound grief after the fleshdeath of his beloved wife Pat, Mr. Nixon suffered a severe stroke followed by a deep coma. Exit via blood clot to heart after an adulthood plagued by phlebitis. Fleshdeath in hospital with his daughters at his bedside (age 81).
Shani in bhava-5 suggests a heavy struggle to endure the election cycle. Nixon was often personally short of funds (Shani-5 dristhi upon 11th-from-Chandra AND bhava-11) despite receiving many luxuries (Zukra) flowing from the privileged environments in which he worked.
Shani-Guru period marked the bitter end to his once "landslide win" political career. Although several unofficial, post-presidential diplomatic ventures were fruitful (and can be seen in retrospect to have opened the Chinese global economic expansion) Nixon was forever marked in the public narrative as a sneaky, lying, paranoid creep.

Their ultimate joint goal had been the POTUS win, and they got their goal after the Nov-1968 election during her Budha-Zukra period. Zukra rules 3-8 suggests secrets.

Distinctive features of the nativity
Pat Nixon early 1970's
For Meena nativities, Surya rules rogasthana-6, which generally implies combative or adversarial circumstances for the father. Her father struggled in business, numerous failed mining ventures, dangerous work, numerous accidents, and sickness.
Surya-1 ruler of 6 suggests also the native's own addictive personality (see Zukra-12 also)
Chandra rules rules swamsha
Emotionally, gives a tendency to self-medicate. Pat was famously a chain-smoker from teenage years until her death from lung cancer. She also managed a private but devastating alcoholism, which further impaired her health..
For 7th-from-Chandra-12, the parents are often distant or emotionally unavailable.
sickly, the native becomes an unpaid caretaker, and the lifemate's character matches the isolated and privacy-seeking bhava-12. The mate often lives in a private world. Mr. Nixon's mind was apparently as invisible to his spouse as it was to most of the public. However, the public face of their relationship was tremendously successful due to the Guru-3 dristhi into her Budha-yuti-Surya.
POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon with Zukra-8 enjoyed a hidden (8) counseling advising partnership (Zukra) with his lifelong companion wife Pat. From her perspective, his mental illness (paranoia) would have been tangible. However she had been raised by a similarly challenged father (SUrya rogesha-1) and she persevered.
Unfortunately during period of Budha lord of 6th-from-Chandra he stopped taking Pat's private advice and indulged in criminal acts. Known by her critics as "Plastic Pat" Mrs. Thelma Patricia Ryan Nixon formed the forever-dieting, chain-smoking stand-by-your-man 50% of a married political partnership. Their marriage was characterized by observers as ritualized (Chandra influence on both partners, rituals rites) and stiffly performed as a public display of middle-class impugnity. While their mutual family-feeling was obvious, the attracting spark between the mates seemed muted at best.
Husband has Chandra-7 suggesting his need for his spouse to function primarily as his caretaker-mother, and predisposition toward non-sexual but affectionate marital arrangements.
According to her biographers, Pat felt that her husband Richard was vulnerable to unsavory influence. She served as a parental protector shielding him, sometimes proactively, from people she perceived to be trying to use him, predatory upon him or wielding negative force.
According to her biographers, Pat Nixon started to lose her influence upon her husband from the beginning of his working presidency in Jan-1969 * his Shani-Guru period* continuing through the early 1970's * increasing at his Budha-Budha swabhukti in Dec-1971* through his impeachment and career collapse.
After the onset of his sahajapathi-3 + ruler-of-12 Budha period, where his Budha is tightly controlled in the Mula-three-pack with Guru-Mula-6 and Kuja-Mula-6, husband came under the sway of his council of corrupt advisors (Ketu-3).
As these men insinuated themselves into Richard Nixon's life, Mr. Nixon stopped consulting with his wife Pat, shutting out her guidance and opinions which until that point had kept him on a sensible course even in the volatile world of politics.
Nixon's long-suffering wife Pat had devoted her adult life to their globe-trotting two-person career. Her husband's criminal prosecution for felony burglary and tax evasion marked the exhausting tail end of her Budha-Shani chidra-dasha reflecting her separative Shani-yuti-Rahu ruling the satkona = breakdown of the marriage trust. She was heard screaming at her husband in the Whitehouse during their final days, "you have ruined my life!" By Nov-1974, Pat had entered her Ketu Mahadasha and except for a few sporadic appearances, she withdrew from public life. Her final mahadasha of Zukra-6 ended with a lingering, painful death from lung cancer expressing a profound and toxic grief.

Mangala drishti into pitrasthana-9 also indicates occasions of aggression or impatience of the father
Budha-Meena * nichha ruling 4 and 7* suggests a weakened accuracy of judgment or a Meena-dreamy preference for imaginative perceptions regarding the character of her spouse. Yuvatipathi Budha sends a communicative, explanatory, sibling-patterned drishti into 7 providing a conversational quality to hermarriage. However part of the marriage environment was criminal, due to Budha-yuti-Surya rogesha. When she did finally comprehend the scale of his willingness to break the law for ego-reasons (Surya), Pat's dreamlike delusions were shattered and she was devastated.
Invisible addictions = Zukra-12
often called "Plastic Pat". Although Mrs. Nixon was not a charismatic figure. She was frequently photographed, always dressed for the occasion, and although a lifetime chain-smoker she was careful to never permit a public image that showed her with a cigarette in her mouth.
Mrs. Nixon reportedly suffered from alcoholism which increased after her husband's political disgrace.
Zukra-12 addictions rules Mangala-3 smoking-lungs
A lifetime chain-smoker, Mrs. Nixon smoked tobacco until she entered a state of terminal lung cancer. She spent years in isolation and pain (Chandra-12) then died age 81.

Hard work, stamina, endurance, challenging family of origin, and volatility of Rahu are required to realize this utlimately productive, materially gainful yoga
The potential of Pat Nixon's Shani-based dhanayoga is reduced due to Shani's nichha disempowerment, but the potential is re-amplified by Shani-yuti-Rahu. The political campaign narrative created by Nixon's party handlers emphasized "cloth-coat" Pat's hard-scrabble upbringing, her work ethic, and her boot-strapping acquisition of a college diploma. The Nixons were presented as a plain-living family, free of temptation to luxury. However, following the death of her parents and beginning with her personal independence age 18, Thema Catherine Ryan started working and earning. She had no dependents and no debts. She dated and she traveled. Her financial position improved consistently while she worked several different jobs. After marrying Nixon, she added his lawyer income to her household coffers, then added the countless untaxed political gifts as well as entertainments, trips, clothing, and grooming services provided for free. Once Nixon moved into higher political eschelons, they bought a valuable estate and several holiday homes. They enjoyed lifetime Secret Service security protection and household staff.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu Mahadasha brings the first (of several) strokes and disconnection from the world. According to her biographers, she never regained interest in public life after the criminal scandal which, it can be seen in hindsight, would have been completely avoidable if this man had been able to continue to listen to the wise advice of his wife.

Onset of Shani-Guru period in Feb-1972 introduced a group of criminally minded ideologues. Their complex victim narrative increased his existing paranoia and engaged his already unstable mentality into world populated by those not only dangerously adversarial to his personal political future but enemies of the free world whose ideas threatened the American democracy. Ruler of 12 and 3, Budha evokes fantasies (12) and a fragmented mental traffic of criticism and invective (Kanya).
Budha Mahadasha intensifies Ketu's impact upon the mental health. Nixon's swift, career-ending demise during Budha-Ketu period, Budha rules Ketu-3, ended with a narrowly avoided (Ketu) trial of criminal impeachment. Such an impeachment threatened federal imprisonment (12) -- but did not materialize due to Viparita Harsha yoga Budha-6 rules 12 . Ketu did however produce the effect of international pariah status (Ketu the wanderer).
As ruler of 6th-from-Chandra and ruler of bhava-12 = 6th-from-7th, Budha's power to introduce enemies of the marriage was suddenly strengthened in late 1971. A cohort of predatory advisers appropriated the priority advising position held for decades by his peer-counselor wife Pat. These contract-breakers blocked the advice of Nixon's previous lifelong supporter and adviser wife Pat and substituted their own cant about the terrible disharmony facing the nation in times of anti-war dissent and how he Nixon must use force to nobly preserve the Union following Lincoln the Great Preserver. Rather suddenly Pat was cut asunder from a decades-long two-person career and marginalized into a cardboard figure for public display. According to observers, their marriage was effectively ended in Budha-Budha period while Pat was heard screaming in the private wing of the Whitehouse "you have ruined my life!"
Budha rules scattered and often incoherent mentality of Ketu-in bhava-3 in the criticizing, accusing rashi of Kanya. Nixon was already mentally unstable. Some psychiatrists have retrospectively diagnosed him as functionally paranoid but prone to episodes of delusion. As Budha-Budha bhukti proceeded, Nixon stopped listening to the sensible advice of his wife and succumbed to the manipulative, paranoia-increasing narrative of his criminally minded advisers.
For decades, Mrs. Pat Nixon personally engaged with Republican Party supporters on the front lines of her husband's speeches, rallies, and social events. Furthermore, to maintain the support of the Party, she needed to attend events promoting other Republican candidates as well. This she did with reliable rhythmic protective persistence as would be expected by his 7th-from-Chandra configuration.
However her unflagging support began to flag when he became POTUS. Their mutual need for each other seemed to cease at the onset of the Budha Mahadasha with Budha ruling 6th-from-7th, 12th-from-7th-from-7th, and 8th-from-Chandra (containing Ketu-3 mentality). Budha mahadasha defined their final years, and they died in a state of social disgrace.
During the 2.5 years of Budha-Budha swabhukti, Nixon authorized criminal burglaries and illegal wiretapping. He took an emotional and controversial (6) stance toward free-speech discourse on the Vietnam War (6) implying that protest was illicit and the nation should defer to his unquestioned authority. His television appearance showed a glaring, suspicious look.
By the onset of Budha-Ketu period in May-1974, Richard Nixon was the first POTUS in more than a century to have been impeached for criminal misconduct while holding the highest office of public trust. He resigned under pressure, asserting that he had done nothing wrong. Having once been the proud leader elected by "landslide win", a bitter victimized Nixon was cut-loose during the Budha-Ketu period.
During eight years as VPOTUS under Eisenhower, Mr. Nixon although cranky was also productive
Professionally, Nixon developed a highly formalized network of those who favored strict laws and caste ranks (Shani). During Budha-Shani period following his resignation from office, where Shani-11 enjoys parivartamsha with Zukra-8, Nixon was able to establish trust (Zukra, troth, trust, betrothal) an inflexible friendship with the Chinese Communist officials (Shani). This trust led to a shocking openings (8, apertures) into an economic system (11) that has been manifesting from China ever since.
From 1952 until 1971, Richard Nixon endured the mahadasha of mature, common-sense Shani. His Shani-Vrizabha-11 enjoys parivartamsha with Zukra-Kumbha-8. Zukra = wife. Due to the parivartamsha, wife controls the effects of 4, 7, 8, and 11 and she has the qualities of fixity and materialism which characterize the sthira rashi.
Throughout Shani Mahadasha, Pat Nixon had been his stalwart counselor and network manager (11). She encouraged him to maintain a normal, conventional viewpoint. She helped a somewhat paranoid husband to make pragmatic choices even in the high-stress world of personality politics. She helped him to steer a lawful career course. Until the Budha mahadasha when the wheels came off.....
it was ultimately the onset of L-3+ruler-of-12 Budha-Budha swabhukti in 1971 which started a chain of unfortunate events resulting in his criminal impeachment, public disgrace and career-ending demise.
As ruler of marriage-adversarial 6th-from-7th, Budha's power to introduce enemies of the marriage was suddenly strengthened at the onset of Budha Mahadasha. Budha also rules mentally-scattered Ketu-in bhava-3 in criticizing, accusing Kanya.
Nixon began to experience a stronger narrative of persecution and victimization due to Budha-Mula-6 much reinforced by the companion graha Mangala+Guru+Surya, including rogesha-6 Guru in 12th-from-Chandra (emotional imagination).
His mental health went into decline just as his association with the "band of thieves " in bhava-6 began to rise. Surya + Mangala-yuti-Budha + Guru = rulers of 7 of the 12 bhava reside in the satkona. These personalities significantly outnumbered his one and only wife. Sadly, he succumbed to a heightened level of paranoia (which was always in the background due to his Ketu-Kanya-3 ruled by Budha-Mula-6). His own mental deterioration was matched by an onslaught of malintentioned advisers who showed little regard for his legacy nor for the public trust (6).
Nixon began to receive damaging advice from the band of thieves inner-circle advisers. They blocked his access to other viewpoints and they encouraged him to authorize criminal burglaries and evade his tax debt. His previously protective and supportive wife Pat Nixon was overwhelmed by this corrupt and predatory council.
The marriage-adversarial effect of ruler-of-12 Budha was particularly strong, since Budha activates Nixon's Ketu-Kanya-3. The wise and loyal wife began to be perceived as an enemy or a low subordinate (6). After 30 years of sensible, trusting marital conversation, her voice was shut out.
During the 2.5 years of Budha-Budha swabhukti, Nixon authorized criminal burglaries and illegal wiretapping. He failed to pay his taxes. He declared (Budha) a controversial (6), argumentative stance regarding the Vietnam War (6) that expressed his disdain for free speech and implied his support for martial law in the USA. His television appearance showed a glaring, suspicious look.
By the onset of Budha-Ketu period , Richard Nixon was the first POTUS in more than a century to have been impeached. He resigned under pressure of a pending felony burglary conviction. Although he never denied his actions, he did deny that he was a criminal. As Nixon famously argued in his own defense "If the president does it, it's not illegal." The highest court vigorously and vehemently disagreed.
Budha-Ketu period * cut loose * May 1974 until May-1975
At the time of his disgrace during Budha-Ketu period, Nixon showed a profoundly unbalanced (Kanya) criminal mentality and for the rest of his life Nixon maintained resistance to the facts (Ketu-3, lack of cohesion). By the time of his forced resignation during Budha-Ketu period, Nixon was experiencing paranoid delusions. He perception was wracked by persecution fantasies. In his increasing isolation, Nixon seemed convinced that he must protect his reputation as a great patriarch of the land (Rahu-9) via control of negative evidence which might dishonor his legacy (6).
Ironically, his mandate to protect this as-yet un-established legacy indeed destroyed most of his legacy before it could even be born. (Rahu, fall from high place.)
After Budha-Ketu period ended, he lived for another two decades in cold ignominy, unable to regain the public trust.
During the first portion of his career during Shani mahadasha * age 40 until age 59, he was able to present an image of the plain-spoken working man (Shani), whose habit of accusing and complaining was culturally compatible with the injustices of life in the oppressed classes. His other-blaming was perceived as a social-class habit not a personal problem.
Nixon's remarkable complex of the rulers of seven bhava within Dhanuzya rashi of globalization and world culture might perhaps have produced a great man in world affairs.
He also had Guru, Surya, and Mangala representing a GROUP of unbalanced, untrustworthy individuals scheduled in this life-script to provide "corrupt advice" and betrayal
It was a perfect storm of much degraded mental acuity added to the presence of the band of thieves who provided a great deal of contradictory and illicit advice to the mentally declining leader.
Richard Nixon grew up resentfully believing that he had not received the privileges to which he was entitled. His famed rants (Mangala-driven Mithunaya) against the "white shoe" privileged monied classes expressed his chronic victim positioning and psychological isolation (Ketu) even while serving in the highest office of the most dominant country in the world (Rahu).
Nixon represented himself as an internationalist expert and diplomat of a high order (Dhanushya graha conferring internationalism, along with Chandra in bhava-1 in diplomatic bhava-7).
