Anuradha * Maitra

BPL commentary:

For Anuradha gentlemen, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani may considerably affect the outcome.

Elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instruction from the guardians of the civilizations of Gisgan-gusura. Their purpose is to impose safety in dangerous conditions via threat-containment and damage-control.

Anuradha imposes order after chaos. They have a special gift for threat reduction. After the terrifying, explosive Shock of Visaka-Radha, enter Anuradha for damage mitigation and triage. Shani-ruled Anuradha requires lawful, mandatory compliance.

Maitra-born are found in emergency centers, disaster response control rooms, high-risk insurance, elite rescue operations, military ordnance control, explosives testing, hazardous materials management, hazardous substance regulation.. Maitra are often the bridge-builders following a social scandal or fight. They maintain order in dangerous conditions via regulatory structures such as war policy, catastrophe protocol, social strategies for responding to epidemic disease and famine, and emergency rules such as martial law. Being Shani-ruled, they are naturally suited to medical, legislative, and executive governance positions.

Themes of risk regulation, damage control , and orderly response to traumatic shock may contextualize the terrestrial experience of Anusham.. Also applied to Chandra in Anuradha


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

"Usually robust and healthy,
  • yet the native of Anuradha gets very little enjoyment out of life.
Probably because he consciously strives after happiness
  • but with continual discontent and bitterness in his heart.
He has a deep secretive nature
  • and because of his attitude and outlook on life, he is somewhat unscrupulous .
"a sweet tongue but poison in the heart" aptly characterizes him."

Distinctive features of the nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Simha * Khaga * Khagaya * air-moving
  • Surya in bhava-10 * digbala * center of hierarchy, brightly governing, intelligence for regulation, focus on social order, regulatory entitlements, eye on high position


The official story is that Clinton's father was a salesman who was killed in an automobile accident a few months before Bill's death.

Surya-Simha * Surya in bhava-10 * digbala highest visibility governance roles

Mr. Clinton a career politician who began competing for elected political positions immediately after earning his law license. A young president, he retired into executive and public-speaking roles for charitable foundations while his wife's political career entered its ascendancy. Considering their interactive roles within each other's careers (Ketu-Rahu) both Bill and Hillary Clinton have been involved in state or national politics during nearly all of their adult lives.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Krittika Chandra * comforted by confident assertion * protectors of intelligent tradition, the lineage creators, Kri
  • Chandra in classroom-6 * comforted by service ministry, familiar with animosity, accusation, litigation, domestic and interpersonal conflict; soothed by medication, rhythmic ailment, undulating disagreements
  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit


Mom was a nurse-anesthetist Chandra in classroom-6 medicine, clinical caretaking


7th-from-Chandra-6 = spouse prefers quiet sanctuary, retreating, withdrawal into private prayer and seclusion. Spouse may be gifted in dealing with distant lands due to Guru in bhava-12 . Mrs. Clinton served as USA Secretary of State, a highly empowered diplomatic position.

Guru in bhava-12 in 7th-from-Chandra-6 implies many socially invisible, private relationships.

Chandra rules 9-politics, celebrity, fortunate elections

6th-from Chandra = Kuja-yuti-Zukra-nichha

Considerable emotional conflict in life due to to rulers of 1-6-7-12 located in the unbalanced, litigious, betraying, accusatory, belittling, criticizing, toxic 6th-from Chandra . Indicates life patterns which were adversarial or exploitive for the mother.

Kanya is servitude and things which fall below expectations. In bhava-11 economy and community, the mistreatment may arise from exploitive friendships or disappointing earnings or betrayal by elder mentors. Yet, Kanya understands the mission of a service ministry. Therefore, the issues are often social or workplace related rather than strictly personal. Mr. Clinton has pursued fundraising campaigns (11) with great success. His service interests include deep poverty and medical care, especially AIDS.

His biggest liability is the emotional conflict which follows the physical attraction to women of lower status (nichha-Zukra). Mangala lagnesha makes it sexual.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala in bhava-11 * drive toward connectivity, pursuit of earnings, , marketplace dynamics, invasive networking, energized economic conquests
  • Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation; thrust toward service, push toward unfairness
  • Kuja-yuti-Zukra * energized bargaining, dynamic trading, masculine force joins feminine allure, potential for aggressive mating, partnering actions

Mangala-11 in critical analytical and argumentative Kanya, the rashi of Kuja's enemy Budha

Kuja rules 1 + 6 from Anuradha-lagna ++ 1 + 8 from Chandra-Meza

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Karkata * comfortable communications, articulation of rhythmic root culture, security, foundations, customary pronouncements, messages about protection and nourishment
  • Budha in bhava-9 * narrative of the father-figure, patronage, paradigm of belief, the guru, describer of theory, explainer of doctrine, theory, 11th-from-11th profits
  • Budha-yuti-Shani * articulation of maturity and responsibility, message of institutional order, talkative elders

Budha rules 8 + 11 from Anuradha-lagna ++ 3 + 6 from Chandra-Meza

Dhanayoga (especially helpful for fundraising) Budha rules-11 + Budha occupies 11th-from-11th

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Thula * many trades, exchanges, much negotiation, believes in justice, doctrine of contractual exchange
  • Guru in bhava-12 * swabhava * many retreats, much divination, many hospitalizations, much private expansion, numerous ancestor guides, much interiority, much going on behind closed doors

Politically fortunate Brihaspati-12 rules 2 + 5 from Anuradha-lagna ++ 9 + 12 from Chandra-Meza

Guru-Budha bhukti until Guru-Rahu chidradasha

Nov-1992 wins POTUS-42 election for the Democratic party, defeating the incumbent POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush Holds the presidency for two terms (8 years), suffering considerable scandal (nichha-Zukra rules navamsha-10). Yet also presiding over one of the most prosperous economies in US history 1992-2000.

1998 impeachment scandal. * Guru-Mangala bhukti * Kuja rules 6-lawsuits, accusation * Kuja rules Ketu-1

Mr. Clinton endured a major secret-sex scandal (Ketu-1 Vrischika) while on public display as a world figure. However he survived and flourished, due partly to support from influential partners who thought the puritanical American outrage was patently silly. Rahu in 7 influential partnerships.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, pleasures of medication, enjoys humility, aesthetic of remedies for injustice
  • Zukra -11 * pleasure of community linkage, enjoys network equity, feminine-figures inter-knit community, appreciation of friendships
  • Zukra-yuti-Mangala * gracious action, energized beauty, sweetly proactive innovation

Sweets-seeking Zukra residing in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing practices also). Nichha-Zukra = Attraction to women of low self-esteem, those in unbalanced relationships, subordinates.

Zukra is a career-booster = rules 10th navamsha = rules partnerships yuvatipathi-7 = rules uttama-Rahu-7 (powerful wife)

yuvati-karaka nichha-Zukra may be problematic personally but beneficial in leadership context

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Karkata * old routines, old defenses, pressured stomach, imposed protection, proletarian cultural roots, must shelter with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-9 * must preach the old doctrine, old paradigms of belief; punitive, unyielding ideologies, cautious, conventional father-figures; tense and fearful religious teachers, chronic rigidity of worldview; heavy pressure against freely chosen convictions
  • Shani-yuti-Budha * resistance against signaling, disciplined messaging, constrained communication

Shani Mahadasha * age 55.6 until age 74.6

  • 06-Sep-2004 emergency quadruple heart bypass and radical new diet.* Shani-Shani swabhukti

Having throughout his adult life carried extra bodyweight related to over-eating of rich foods, after a major heart surgery following a near-fatal cardiac event, Mr. Clinton radically changed his diet and his fleshbody became thin.* Ketu-1 allows shape-shifting * Shani drishti to lagnesha Kuja-11

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

  • Rahu-Vrizabha * uttama * craving for preserved collections, treasure-hoards * mask of historic conservatism; fascinated by banking, acquisition, hoarding * seeks special importance via accrued values
  • Rahu in bhava-7 * in swabhava of Suave Zukra, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual arrangements, amplified alliances, marriages, vows, agreements; desires a special, important, brokerage role in non-standard negotiations, deal-making, match-making, contracts, and trusts. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious partners (personal and professional). Rahu the Poseur may pose as the Perfect Partner, a middleman, a bargainer, a diplomat, an arranger, an agreeable advocate.

uttama-Rahu is ambitious. Mr. Clinton's background was one of poverty and instability reflected in the death of his father, the multiple remarriages of his mother (Guru-12 opposition Chandra-6) and being raised in the somewhat nationally stigmatized culture of working class Arkansas. Nevertheless he married a Yale-law attorney and with her mutuality, understanding that it would be her turn to dominate eventually, he began entering political contests in Arkansas.

Rahu in bhava-7 partner + Ketu in classroom-1 self

Socially influential partnership. Mr. Clinton has remained legally married to Hillary Rodham Clinton since 1975. Even during the height of his multiple-wave sex scandals, neither he nor Mrs. Clinton have ever announced a separation.

The Clinton-Rodham union has become iconic for many married adult members of the USA professional classes. It has come to serve as a teaching example for legions of USA professional spouses who juggle two prominent careers, a home with children, ongoing intellectual development which requires reading and thinking time, and often extremely heavy public responsibilities including extensive travel.

How to meet all of these uniquely personal and family needs while somehow remaining spiritually and emotionally aligned in life partnership? The Clinton marriage provides one example of dual-career marital longevity achieved via professional respect and support, along with tolerance for personal tastes and imperfections, growth and change. (Not to mention a few catastrophically selfish mistakes.)

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Vrizchika * uttama * dissociates from hidden empowerments, incomplete discovery, empty secrets, dissolute penetrations, not limited by catastrophic change, ignores restriction on initiations
  • Ketu in classroom-1 * wanders from the fleshly container, disperses coherently unique identity, ambivalent toward the power of muscular movement, absent from embodiment, other-defined chameleon, irrelevance of the personality
Ketu in classroom-1 is a shape-shifter. Born as William Blythe, he became William Clinton via one of his four step-fathers. Born into the impoverished and undereducated culture of working-class Arkansas, he catapulted to Governor of Arkansas and two-term POTUS-42. From early years he was a large-frame, junkfood-eating, meat-diet man accustomed to carrying heavy bodyweight. During Shani-Shani bhukti, he had emergency heart surgery, suddenly slenderized the body, and became a vegan eater.
