There is no recognized publicly available birth time for Ronald Reagan. Neither his State of Illinois Birth Certificate nor his mother's family Bible mention Ronald Reagan's time of birth. There is some mention in the records of family members that birth occurred just before sunrise.

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu

BPL commentary:

For Dhaniztha natives, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitors may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops." (see later Pada descriptions).

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Makara * Savitra * the stimulator
  • Surya in bhava-12 * center of Other-Worlds, brightly contemplative, focus on seclusion, invisible light-source provides guidance, intelligence for private prayer, eye on imagination


Reagan's father was an Irish-American Roman Catholic travelling shoe salesman with a noted alcohol problem. Observers noticed domestic violence, irregular employment, and insufficient family funds. Although dad was at home occasionally and known to his sons, he was primarily an absentee figure (12). Also Ketu-9.

Political Intelligence

Surya-12 occupies the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = direction via invisible intelligence.

Although weakened in Makara-12, Surya-Makara receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from Surya's ruler nichha-Shani-3 . Reagan experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas but rather by his ability to communicate the corporate talking points.

Surya in 10th-from-Chandra suggests thatReagan's political intelligence (Surya) was walled away from public visibility, and likely controlled by a cohort of institutional managers (3) represented by Shani-Chandra-Rahu-3.

The former president of the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild and product spokesperson for corporate advertisers, Reagan did not have a strong personality. Rather, he was a Master of the Message. A robustly healthy and handsome (Zukra-1) communicator (3) he took direction from invisible (12) authorities.


From a psychic perspective, Reagan -- like Lincoln -- is considered to be a walk-in. The original person was not happy with the current life unfolding, becme suicidal, and offered the body-identity to a transient agent. This agent had a crucial task: to collapse the USSR. The transient agent occupied the body successfully. From a basis of zero political experience, Reagan was resoundingly elected to two terms as California Governor, followed by two terms as POTUS-40. His personal diaries for those sixteen years of elite governance empowerment are filled with dribble such as "made a few telephone calls today", indicating that he was not making conscious executive decisions, and he had minimal understanding of what was happening around him.He did what he was told, and looked good doing it. The Berlin Wall fell. Once the primary mission was accomplished, his mentality gradually dissolved in the final years of the second term, and following the exit of the guest agent, the identity-less body vegetated in a prolonged state of deep dementia until the artificially sustained organic systems finally ceased functioning.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-3 * comfort in cohort, familiar with communication, conversation, parlor, soothed by information delivery, messaging, signals
  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit
  • Chandra in burdened Bharani * comforted by carrying valuable burdens * protectors of assets, treasuries, contractual trust, natural resources, reserves
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted, sensitive to seniority figures, needs austerity, feels like a regulator
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient, sensitive to exotic figures, need opportunities, feels unusual, exceptional

MOTHER = highly complex and demanding bond

Reagan claimed to have been devoted to his mother, but she could not have been an easy parent. Mom Nelle Wilson Reagan was a powerful influence in her younger son's life. An Irish-American housewife and amateur dramatist, Nell was deeply involved in her Disciples of Christ religious congregation, participating in church management and communications (Guru-9 drishti to Chandra-3).

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.

\Bharani-Somana-yuti-Shani-nichha would suggest that mom demanded social status and Bharani-Somana-yuti-Rahu-Bharani would suggest that while she was enforcing the rules (Shani) she was also breaking the rules (Rahu). Mom would have been passionate (Rahu) about social mobility (Shani hierarchies) via financial achievement (Bharani).

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. the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra indicates friends, suggesting that even more than mother-and-son, Reagan and his mom were friends.

Brother 11-from-Chandra

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.

Alliances, both personal and professional

Chandra is strongly influenced by Rahu-Ketu, by Guru, and by nishturabhashi Shani . Somana-opposite-Ketu indicates apathy toward the numerous partnerships, but Guru makes them numerous, and Rahu makes them passionate, and Shani makes them socially ordered. Nichha-Shani often indicates a family history of blood feuds or racism, and at least unconsciously a feeling of inferiority would have contributed to his later expedient (Rahu) bonding with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era.

For Kumbha births, Rogesha Chandra has a propensity to be involved in emotionally-conflicted situations.

Chandra's propensity to be electro-magnetic 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. 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.MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

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

Both bhava-9 = marriage-1 Thula ++ bhava-4 marriage-2 Vrishabha are ruled by Zukra-1 = strong personal identification with both feminine partners.

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

First lifepartner Jane Wyman

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 demanding, 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.

Second life partner POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan

Marriage-2 = 2nd-from-Chandra, bhava-4 = 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. Mr. Reagan addressed his second wife as Mommy. Their marriage was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive. Nancy Davis Reagan functioned as a soberly nurturing caretaker (her Chandra-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-3 brain). Nancy Reagan worked assiduously to shield her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny * her Shani-6 rules Pushya-Chandra.

Chandra, Career, and Mommy

10th navamsha = Karkata= nationalism, protectionism, ethnocentrism, conservative habitual routines

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

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Dhanuzya * vigorous pursuit of humanistic worldview; push toward globalism
  • Mangala in bhava-11 * drive toward connectivity, pursuit of earnings, invasive networking, energized economic conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal

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 = one receives dynamic economic gain (11) from the activities of symbolic rulership (10). Reagan was not an autocrat, but 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

  • Budha-Dhanuzya * priestly communications, articulation of theoretical, doctrinal, philosophical beliefs
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy, social participation networks, community, friendship, interlinked systems
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * articulation of forward action, message of innovation and forward movement, outspoken

atmakaraka vargottamsha Budha rules 5-8

Budha-11 rules 3-6 from Chandra-Meza

Budha-11 occupies in 9th-from-Chandra

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Thula * many trades, exchanges, much negotiation, believes in justice, doctrine of contractual exchange
  • Guru in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto *swabhava * many doctrines, multiple beliefs, much preaching, multiple father-figures, many guru-professor
  • Guru-yuti-Ketu upeksha-karaka * multiple disregarder-disperser figures, many disconnections, much surrender

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

Age 46-62 Guru Mahadasha * Guru-yuti-Ketu * Guru-9 ideology receives drishti of Chandra-Rahu-Shani-3 communications.

In 1966 with absolutely no political experience, Mr. Reagan was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors to deliver the message. He catapulted to the governorship from unlikely beginnings. Formerly a minor screen actor, the head of the screen actors guild, and then a television advertising prompt-reader, Reagan's it was literally an overnight change for him to step into a top authority role as Governor of California.

Due to a weakened Surya-Makara-12 and Guru-yuti-Ketu, it can be surmised that Ronald Reagan was -- like Illinois fellow POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln before him -- a psychic walk-in for this sudden, celebrated new role. The world was on the verge of WW-3, a powerful intervention was needed, and an experienced, ego-engaged politician would have failed to follow orders. Reagan was the perfect fit.

While others with more skill and focus would be laboring behind the scenes to make it happen, it was Reagan who presided over the collapse of the Berlin Wall, which marked the end of the Cold War and minimized the threat of the global annihilation.

Reagan's his lack of experience notwithstanding, he was handsome, cheerful, and well-liked. In 1970, he was re-elected to a second term of governorship.

Yogakaraka Zukra receives drishti of Guru-9-ideology-politics. 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).

As the ruler of bhava-2, 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 Doud 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-Kumbha * appreciation of social networks, pleasures of friendly arrangements, aesthetic of scientific, economic linkage
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; enjoys athletic, vigorous physical equity, appreciation of new birth * identified with partnership

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-Meza * nichha * old feuds, pressured invasions, old competitions, pressure in the head-brain, imposed competition, must conquer with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-3 * must message, communicate, explain; cautious, conventional cohort; chronic mental depression
  • Shani-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * resistance against protection, emotional discipline. constrained flow
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu* resistance against ambition, disciplined risk, constrained

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 in bhava-3 * privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging, publishing; seeks a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Opportunistic, ambitious sibling-cousin or cohort.
  • Rahu-Meza * mask of competitive, pioneering, urgent force
  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu * amplified emotion, exotic habits, tricky comforts, opportunistic mother
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, exotic rules, tricky rules, opportunistic elders

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

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

SURYA Fathers * Three Father-figures

Graha yuti Surya often suggest several father-figures.

  • 19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 1-6 = first father-figure
  • 21 deg Surya (Puna) rules 10 = second father-figure
  • 23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 8-11 = third father-figure

Father-figure-1 Arudra-Kuja lagnesha birth appearance

Nancy's bio-dad was a car salesman (Mithunaya). Although he provided her physical body (1) her parents were divorced (6) soon after Nancy's birth. He played no further conscious role in her life.

Father-figure-2 * Puna-Surya karmesha public dignity

From infancy until fourth grade (onset of her Budha-Budha swabhukti age 9) Nancy's maternal uncle, the husband of her mother's sister, served as Nancy's father-figure. Mrs. Reagan recounted that for the first nine years of her life, all of her friends and neighbors believed that her foster-dad uncle was actually her father. During these years she was called by her birth name, Anne Frances.

Father-figure-3 * Puna-Budha vriddhipathi economics, community

When Nancy was age-14, she was legally adopted by her stepfather = mother's second husband, Dr. Loyal Davis. He was a wealthy Republican Party donor whose political influence was powerful but hidden (8). Nancy became a social debutant (11, connections, income).

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-11 * comfort in networks, connection, community, friendship
  • Chandra-Karkata * swakshetra * comforted by rhythmic tidal maternal soothing
  • Chandra in Pushyami * comforted by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure, sensitive legislators, sober caretakers, legally minded environmentalists

Mrs. Reagan's friendships were dutiful (Pushya) and the hierarchical position of her friends was distinctive.

For example, she 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. It was said that His Majesty felt understood by the former first lady.

Nancy's mother was a cinema actress who re-married a political kingmaker named Loyal Davis. Pushya-Chandra in bhava-9 patronage and politics. Mama abandoned little Anne (later called Nancy) for nine years, to be raised by relatives. After her mother's gainful remarriage to a prosperous politically involved surgeon (2nd-from-Chandra) Nancy re-entered family life. Via her mother's new social connections (Chandra in 11th-from-11th) Nancy became a social debutante.

marriage for 7th-from-Chandra-11 = bhava-5

  • She attracted a partner with political and entertainment credentials: POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan

Her Guru-Simha-110 dhavakaraka occupies leadership-10 and rules 2-treasuries + 5-elections, games, celebrity, entitlements. Shani-yuti-Guru suggests an older husband.

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.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

lagnesha Kuja rules 1-6

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of conversation; push toward explanatory instruction
  • Mangala in bhava-8 * drive toward discovery, pursuit of rebirth, invasive transformations, vigorous revelations, energized mysterious conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * energized confidence, dynamic genius, masculine force joins willful charm
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal

Lagnesha Kuja-8 suggests identity changes. A maternal aunt-and-uncle raised little Anne Frances (later called Nancy) for 9 years while the travelling-actress mother visited occasionally. Budha-Budha swabhukti reunited Nancy with her relocated and remarried mother. Mother became a socialite and patron (9) of political funding Pushya-Chandra-9. Nancy moved from her childhood home to her Mother's new home in an exclusive Chicago suburb, became a socially connected young debutant, and attempted to launch a career as a Hollywood actress. After her marriage to an actor with political aspirations, Nancy became the essential secret-keeping, camouflaging partner in a two-person political powerhouse career.

Lagnesha Mangala in occult-8. Mrs. Reagan was reputed (and chastised) for her use of astrological forecasts.

POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan * rogesha-6 = Simha-Shani in bhava-12 . Simha-Shani is particularly associated with the difficulties inherent in regulating (Shani) the brightly lit, flamboyant, center-stage political-entertainment environments. She was accused of criminal (6) impropriety in official duties (Shani) because she accepted millions of dollars worth of untaxed designer clothing and jewels into her personal wardrobe inventory (Rahu-2 ruled by Zukra). However due to Harsha yoga, there was no material consequences following the accusations.
