features of the nativity
Gerald Ford, born Lesley Lynch King
Gerald Ford was a career politician who never held any other job (except for university years during Ketu Mahadasha, when he worked as a restaurant waiter).
Gerald Ford was known for his willingness (Surya) to accept new political roles (Surya) as circumstances (Mithunaya) required. Because he was flexible and available and known for seeing both sides (Mithunya) he was called upon to fill many short-term (Mithunaya) roles. Surya-11 socially well-connected
Ford was a master of the social-networking approach. Famed for his agiility in working "both sides of the aisle". Much of his political activity was accomplished at parties such as the Bilderberg meetings . In his longlasting friendship with POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon ++ POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon, Ford and his wife Betty (herself a former professional dancer) socialized by dancing in hotel clubs and entertainment venues around Washington D.C.

Surya vargottamsha atmakaraka in Mithunaya 10th-bnavamsha ++ radical-11-vriddhisthana.
Ford was a master of the US-Congressional caucus system = an elaborate orchestration of cooperative teamwork (Mithunaya). He wrote the influential book A Time to Heal, explained countless situations, and authored countless policy documents. His expertise in committee-work is still held as a standard aim for Congresspeople.
Ford wrote many books, articles, and pamphlets. He traveled the country in support of his Congressional initiatives, attending town halls and giving interviews to journalists (Mithunaya). As an highly experienced Congressional caucus master, he managed small teams (3) of legislators as they tackled a project to produce a working document. His career was marked by frequent communication with his district and savvy handling of publications media.

in 1964 Ford chaired the Warren Commission that investigated the assassination of POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy. The commission included several members of both political parties. It collected a great deal of documented information such as interview transcripts, photographs, and expert opinion during extensive deliberations. After a lengthy political inquiry into the murder, the commission issued a report which revealed no new information. Their conclusion is widely believed to be a colossal cover-up.
The controversial Warren Commission was widely believed to have covered up the real truth about the catastrophic murder. Many believed that the Mafia and the steel cartels, which wanted an escalation of a potentially profitable steel-weapons ground-war in Vietnam, were behind the assassination. Despite public evidence which showed gunshots from several different angles, the Warren Commission led by Ford claimed that the entire event was conceived and executed by one single discontented person. Remarkably even under intense security, that identified person was then quickly, accidentally, murdered. This explanation seemed suspicious to many Americans and Ford was implicated in the collusion.
During the investigation, POTUS-pair-38 Addiction Recovery 1918-2011 Betty Bloomer Ford became overwhelmed by the nature of the information that was being handled by the Warren Commission. She suffered a severe nerve injury and then malignant breast cancer. Chandra rules 6th-from-7th
Mangala occupies the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra
Mangala-9 usually signifies aggression or unfatherly, immature behavior by the father
Ford's bio-dad expressed little interest in the boy until he was grown and even after their meeting they maintained only a sporadic correspondence. Yet his stepfather supported young Gerald much more substantially, providing a stable home, education, and a basis for life. 8th-from-9th = bhava-4 containing Chandra, indicating the stepfather = security-and-protection bhava-4
The playboy father of Lesley Lynch King (Ford's original name) abandoned his infant son and the child's mother. His mother remarried, and little Lesley was renamed "Gerald Ford" after his mother's husband who raised him. Young Gerald was not told about his real father until he was 17 years old when his Ketu-Ketu swabhukti provided a disconnection from his current narrative. After meeting his bio-dad, Ford returned to his family.

Budha rules Karakamsha = Mithunaya-11 contains vargottamsha atmakaraka Surya politics
Dhanayoga generated by Budha for Simha nativities
Budha-12 rules 2-11 in the invisible 12th bhava. Ford belonged to a network of HNWI (high net worth individuals) hailing from the Michigan automotive industry's financial elite.
Ford won 12 serial elections retaining his Congressional seat, showing the abundant ease of swakshetra-Dhanuzya-Guru-5 in matters of gambling, charismatic performances, and political elections.
Ford's political ease with generous rule-bending (Guru also rules 8-nondisclosure) was so smooth that Ford was the first USA national legislator to be both vice president and president without being elected by the people. He was appointed vice president when Spiro Agnew resigned. He assumed the presidency by a legal mechanism (not by election) when Nixon resigned. Ford was the sort of institutional governance worker who is often called a "utility infielder" (a baseball term that means one who is capable of being useful everywhere in the field).
While sympathetically supporting social-participation initiatives for the less well-situated, Ford's career was ensured by his financial backers who provided the campaign funds. Shani-yuti-Zukra-Vrishabha-10.
His main source of economic income was the financial assets of his wealthy constituents, who were consistently (Shani) in agreement (Zukra) with his fiscally conservative policies and who consistently therefore (Shani) funded (11) his ongoing political campaigns. Vrishabha-Zukra-10 indicates his sustaining agreements with the wealthy elites. He attended the Bilderberg conferences.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani-Zukra-10 = old money
yuvatipathi-7 Shani-10 in 7th-from-Chandra-4 suggests that the marriage partner's public behavior is structurally supportive both economically and socially
His competent, sober and materialistic yuvatipathi-7 Shani-Vrizabha-10 indicates profound endurance in the profession of law-making. He took the legislative task seriously and was an authority in the law. He stood for 12 term-elections as a humane conservative and won every time due to Shani's role as ruler of 7 and located in 7th-from-Chandra.
durakaraka yuvatipathi-7 Shani-10 indicates a persistent, hard-working, sober, mature, and financially pragmatic deal-maker. He married an equally hard-working spouse as indicated by Shani-Zukra in 7th-from-Chandra-4; the couple prospered as she provided luxury parties for supporters, while he made the deals.
