Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

Although much weakened in Makara-12, Surya-Makara receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from Surya's ruler nichha-Shani-3

Surya occupies 10th-from-Chandra suggests that Reagan's political intelligence (Surya) was walled away from public visibility, and likely beholden (Shani) to a cohort of communicators managers (Shani-3 and Shani-Chandra-Rahu).

The former president of the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild and product spokesperson for corporate advertisers, Reagan had a modest ego which allowed him to function as a robust communicator (3) while also remain available to take direction from higher-ups (Surya-Makara-12). Reagan experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas (Surya is really too weak to have its own ideas) but rather by his ability to vigorously yet sweetly communicate the corporate talking points.

Reagan's father was an Irish-American Roman Catholic shoe salesman with a notable alcohol problem, suggested domestic violence and irregular employment.

Chandra * Marriages

Two marriages are indicated by multiplier-disconnector Guru-yuti-Ketu residing in 7th-from-Chandra.

Interestingly, both bhava-9 marriage-1 Thula and bhava-4 marriage-2 Vrishabha are ruled by Zukra-1 conferring a strong personal identification with both feminine partners.

Marriage is a complex experience due to nishturabhashi yoga with Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3.

His first life-partner was a famous Hollywood actress seen via 7th-from-Chandra-3 = bhava-9 drama (5th-from-5th). Chandra-yuti-Shani imposed an emotionally stressful drishti upon bhava-9 (wife-1). Also he would have experienced the almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to Ketu in bhava-9-Thula.

Marriage-2 (bhava-4) is completely free of drishti.

  • For Chandra-3 nativities, the second marriage-mate is the anchor of the home.

Second wife was a home-based, security-oriented, parental figure seen via 2nd-from-Chandra-3. He even called her Mommy. Their marriage was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive. Nancy Davis Reagan functioned as a soberly nurturing caretaker (Pushya) and Mr. Reagan accepted that care. During the final POTUS-40 years coinciding with her protective Chandra Mahadasha, he slowly slipped into the Alzheimer's brain condition (his Shani-Mesha). Mrs. Reagan worked assiduously to shield her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny * her Shani-6 rules Pushya-Chandra.

Bhava-2 wealth-containment = marriage-2 (see Nancy Reagan Meena lagna). Meena-2 is also 11th-from-2nd-from-Chandra, the social-economic web of the 2nd marriage. Nancy Reagan was a diligent networker who knitted an extensive web of social-financial connections to support the marital estate. Without this social-connection and monetary funding network, her husband with his complete lack of political-legislative experience would likely never have won twice the California governorship and two terms as POTUS-40.

Marriage and Career

Chandra is affected by Rahu-Ketu, by Guru, and by nishturabhashi Shani which all variously created emotional bonds (Somana) of alliance with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era

In Ronald Reagan's nativity, the career-determining 10th navamsha = Karkata, showing a match between the presentation of his Karkata public profile (aggressive defense of the folkways) and the motivating push (Mangala) of his partner Nancy's Pushya-Chandra.

The husband with money-minded, values-conserving Chandra-Bharani well matches the wife-2 with her rule-oriented, serious-minded and class-conscious Pushya Chandra.

Jane Wyman was a famed Hollywood actress. In his first marriage, Reagan was a lower ranked actor and a secondary earner. However in the second marriage, he gained top governance roles (Gov Calif, POTUS-40) and his partner Nancy while never invisible was cast in the role of (infantilizing) maternal protector (Karkata). His habit of publicly addressing his wife as Mommy is explained by the confluence of wife-2 Chandra with his 10th-navamsha.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Mom Nelle Wilson Reagan was a powerful influence in her younger son's life. An Irish-American housewife deeply involved in her Disciples of Christ religious congregation, she was vigorously active in church management and communications (3).

Rogesha Chandra's propensity to be involved in emotionally-conflicted situations (always the case for Kumbha births).

Chandra's propensity to be emotionally attracted to scenes of discord is amplified by risk-taking Rahu. Also disciplined, formalized and regulated Shani applies that relentless emotional need for social approval which characterizes nishturabhashi yoga. (Note the extreme edge of Shani-fear is blunted by inclusive Guru drishti, but the Shani-Rahu-Chandra cluster remains emotionally prone toward the use of communicative abilities to obtain social approval Shani and privilege Rahu.)

Both Ronald Reagan and his only sibling, his elder brother Neil Reagan, represented by Ronald's Kumbha lagna = 11th-from-Chandra, earned a bachelor's degree in economics (Kumbha) from Eureka College This was the college of his mom's congregation = 11th-from-Chandra = Kumbha-Zukra. Like Ron, the older brother Neil Reagan started a radio management career in the Midwest. Neil then following Ron to Southern California, where both men developed materially successful careers in radio and television production.

L-6 matrikaraka Chandra occupies bhava-3 communication, cohort, entourage. Mom was also an enthusiastic dramatist in local theatre who earned pleasant reviews in the local newspapers for her work in local ensemble (3) theatre productions.

The harsh disciplinary implications of nishturabhashi yoga while adding complexity to the mother's character is nonetheless significantly relieved via Guru-in-kendra from Chandra. Reagan's father appears to have had a very minimal effect on his character, as indicated by the invisible father Surya-12. However his mother was a force of nature. 11th-from-Chandra indicates friends, suggesting that even more than mother-and-son, Reagan and his mom were friends.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Saravali Ch. 45, shloka 12-14 "Mars placed in friendly sign will make one protect the wealth of friends. "

Mangala-11 rules karma bhava-10 = shows that one receives dynamic economic gain (11) from the activities of symbolic rulership (10). Reagan was well compensated for his dramatic portrayal of an authoritative leader.

Promoted by his overseers as "The Great Communicator" Reagan's Kuja ruling 3-10 is amplified by Rahu-3 drishti into the Budha-yuti-Mangala pair for leadership by meetings, short-term travel, dinner parties, and making announcements. Not decisions -- announcements. The decisions were made by corporate agency of 10th-from-Chandra.

Rahu drishti to Mangala. His style was always warm, alive, and pulsing with physical energy. Not necessarily wisdom. But plenty of energy!

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

As ruler of 11 residing in 11th-from-11th whilst ruling 11-and-2, Brihaspati becomes a very significant dhanakaraka suggesting high levels of Financial well-being

Age 46-62 mahadasha of Guru * Guru-yuti-Ketu * Guru receives drishti of Chandra-Rahu-Shani . In 1966 with absolutely no political experience, Mr. Reagan was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors to "deliver the message". He catapulted from unlikely beginnings, as president of the screen actors guild and television advertising prompt-reader, into overnight authority role as Governor of California. Despite his lack of experience, he was well-liked and re-elected to serve two terms. Yogakaraka Zukra receives drishti of Guru and once the Guru-Zukra period started his "symbolic spokesperson" career seemed charmed by good hair and a sparkling smile. Chandra rogesha also receives drishti of Brihaspati, energizing the inclusive influence of Guru upon Reagan's familiarity with and ability to deftly deflect most forms of conflict and scandal. Guru in bhava-9 suggests multiple father-figures, including perhaps those who shaped his ideological position (Guru-9).

Guru also rules 11th-from-2nd-from-Chandra, signifying the social network emitting from the second marriage. Bhava-2 Meena second marriage = his Meena second wife Nancy Davis. Nancy's parents had been close friends (11) of POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower and POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Eisenhower. The Guru mahadasha brought into full flower the results of the social network of the second lifemate, and Reagan's career was directed by his second wife's stepfather the Republican kingmaker-fundraiser Loyal Davis. Dr. Davis is represented in Mr. Reagan's nativity by Simha-7 political career = 8th-from-9th-from-4th (stepfather of the second wife).

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra-1 accepts drishti of Guru-9, connoting ideological humanism and Thula-style traditional diplomacy. Zukra-1 yogakaraka ruler of 4-9, ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, and ruler of Ketu taking drishti of Guru, signifies a handsome, very pleasant and pleasure-seeking, rather disengaged, relaxed, large-bodied, predominantly material, physicalized personality.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani + Rahu + Chandra create an Endurance powerhouse in bhava-3 emphasizing the promotion of opportunistic ambition (Rahu) via steady and systematic ability to accomplish (Shani) tasks of organization, argumentation, planning, and policy (3).

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

Rahu-3 is constrained by Slow Shani but Rahu drishti to 7-9-11 amplifies 7-relationships 9-paradigm of belief 11-social-economic participation

  • either by yuti or drishti RAHU engages the lords of nine of 12 total bhava

  • mutual aspect of Rahu-Guru

  • Rahu drishti to Budha-Mangala marketplace gains

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

The extraordinary charisma that Reagan sustained from high school until his retirement, can be largely attributed to Rahu-3 the ambitious communicator working together with Budha the conversational announcer.

Both when governor of California and when POTUS-40, the hallmark of Reagan's administrative style was his enthusiasm for the physical body and its energy, especially personal appearances and announcements.

For example, when naming a new group of state department employees to embassy positions (an honor for them) Reagan personally telephoned each employee. In his diary, he mentions with some pride that no president before him had ever taken the time to make personal calls.

Consider Budha working together with Rahu-3. Reagan was not calling to have a conversation; he was calling to make an announcement.

Reagan intuitively knew that his personal voice was much more exciting and self-promoting than a signed paper letter.

Distinctive features of the nativity

Kala-Amrita-Yoga * Reverse * Kulika KSY

Guru lagnesha

Surya * pitrikaraka Nancy's father was a car salesman ) Surya-Mithunaya (sales) in bhava-4 (cars).


Fathers * Three Father-figures

Graha yuti Surya often suggest additional father-figures. Nancy Reagan = Mithunaya-Puna-1 Surya yuti Mithunaya-Puna-2 Budha yuti Mithunaya-Arudra-4 Mangala * all three Surya-Budha-Mangala in the socially-ordering, hierarchical, publically visible karma-bhava-10.

Father-figure-1 * Arudra-4-Kuja ashtangata harana * ashtangata * Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala

Nancy's birth father was a car salesman (Surya-Mithunaya-4) and his influence was largely unknown to her (Surya rules). For the Kanya lagna, sandeza-pathi (sales, conversation) 8th-from-8th + randhresha-8 Mangala is often problematic, particularly regarding undisclosed (8) behaviors (Kuja). The situation may be compounded by the penetrating wildness of Arudra-4-Kuja.

Mangala suffers the weakening condition of ashtangata harana with less than 2 degrees between Mangala yuti Surya. The combust status of Mangala may indicate that the dangerous potential is much tamed and Mangala's actions are submitted to the will of the two graha holding higher degrees, Budha and Surya.

Father-figure-2 * Puna-1 Surya * Surya in bhava-10 * dig-bala

From infancy until fourth grade, Nancy's maternal uncle, the husband of her mother's sister, served as Nancy's father-figure. The maternal uncle is represented by the graha holding the second-highest degree in Mithunaya. Puna-1 Surya controls Guru-yuti-Shani in the cloistered bhava-12. Shani (bones) in bhava-12 (closets) can indicate skeletons in the closet. He contributed Nancy's skills in private environments related to the bhava ruled by Guru-Shani being 4-5-6-7, particularly the Simha expressions of those secluded settings such as back-room politics and invisible romantic drama. rogesha-6 Shani in bhava-12 provides a protective Harsha Yoga, ensuring that neither Nancy or her maternal uncle come to harm as a result of this complex private relationship.

Father-figure-3 * Puna-2-Budha

Nancy's stepfather and later adoptive father was her mother's second husband, Dr. Loyal Davis. He is the third father-figure represented by the graha holding the highest degree in the Mithunaya-10 cluster of graha-yuti-Surya.

Dr. Loyal Davis is represented by Puna-2-Budha holding the highest degree in the Mithunaya-10 cluster. Budha is lagnesha and karma-pathi, suggesting that this final father-figure offered identity (1) and social visibility (10). Budha provides her appearance, social status, hierarchal communicative abilities to deliver announcements, power to give orders and make executive decisions. Nancy Reagan spoke with lasting admiration regarding her adoptive stepfather's contributions to her life.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Chandra in Pushyami * comforted by lawful customs

* comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit

Mrs. Reagan was a confidante and longstanding friend of UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales . Her Chandra in Pushya matches his radical Pushkarya lagna. The pair corresponded frequently; His Majesty felt understood by the former first lady, who was five years elder to his mother UK-Queen 1926- Elizabeth-2. However the Queen's chandra occupies leashing, lashing Azlesa, and she may not have been able to fully understand her more Shani-steady Pushya son.

Nancy's mother was a cinema actress who re-married a political kingmaker named Loyal Davis. Pushya-Chandra in bhava-5 drama and politics.

A complex and engaging marriage

Nancy's husband Ron Reagan * radical Chandra-Meza-Bharani ruled by Zukra, suggesting a high emotional compatibility with her own Pushya Chandra ruled by Shani (a great friend of Zukra). Chandra-Bharani is motivated emotionally by the need acquire a treasury, and Chandra-Pushya is motivated by a need for hierarchical social position.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Nancy Davis Reagan's Shani-Simha-6 is always a challenging and contradictory placement, and moreso in a wifely nativity in regard to the husband when Shani-Simha dominates dhava-karaka Guru-Simha-6. Her motives appear to have been predominantly emotional. Yet political critics (Simha-Shani rules-6 ) saw her actions as illegally secluding and denying the public's right (Shani-Simha) to know the truth about the sickness of the chief leader.

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

During her Shani-Rahu period during infancy, she was abandoned (Ketu) by her divorcing parents and placed in the care of maternal relatives (Rahu-8 sudden change of identity).

A maternal aunt-and-uncle raised Nancy for 10 years while the travelling-actress mother visited occasionally. During Shani-Rahu period 10 years later, she was reunited with her mother, who had relocated and remarried. Mother became a socialite * Pushya-Chandra-5. Nancy became a Hollywood actress.

It has been speculated that Nancy Reagan exhibited the classic symptoms of abandonment-trigger Borderline Personality Disorder, including gracious social warmth and public pleasantness to those outside the family paired with angry attacks and accusations within the private family domain, along with protective adoration of the narcissistic husband, paired with vicious mistreatment of one or more of one's children.

One signal of a compatible marriage is a match between the Rahu-Ketu axis of one partner with the radical Chandra-lagna or the radical kalpa-sthana lagna of the other partner. Husband's radical Chandra-Meza closely matches Nancy's D-1 and D-9 Rahu-Ketu axis in Thula-Mesha.
