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).

  • Chandra-Vrishabha * uttama * comforted by rhythmic historical tonal values
  • Chandra yuvatipathi-7 * Rahu-5 politics

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Mangala-9 is critical analytical and argumentative Kanya, the rashi of Kuja's enemy Budha

bhratrupathi-3 and Vriddhipathi-11 goals

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Maraka Budha-Shani chidra-dasha his age 87

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru occupies Karma Bhava-10 highest visibility governance roles

Guru rules 12 and Guru rules 3; Guru rules 8-11 from Chandra. No trine rulerships suggests vulnerability.

Nov-1992 wins POTUS-42 election for the Democratic party, defeating the incumbent POTUS-41 All the Best 1924- George H. W. Bush Holds the presidency for the full eight year maximum, suffering considerable scandal (nichha-Zukra-9). Yet also presiding over one of the most prosperous economies in US history. * Guru-Zukra period * Zukra vidyapathi-5 in 9 elections

1998 impeachment scandal. Mr. Clinton endured a major secret-sex scandal (Ketu-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. Guru-Chandra period * uttama Rahu-yuti-Chandra yuvatipathi-7 ensures that he will remain on the job

Nov-2006 Hillary Clinton re-elected US Senator from New York * Shani-Ketu period * Ketu-11 gives effect of Mangala Vriddhipathi-11 in 9 yuti Zukra "wife obtains her goals". Kuja provides economic gains and reaching goals. However per Ketu she would not remain in the Senate instead embarking upon a presidential run soon afterward.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

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

Zukra-yuti-Mangala-9 * nichha

Significant economic gains due to Vriddhipathi-11 Mangala-9 yuti yogakaraka Zukra

yuvati-karaka nichha-Zukra may be problematic personally but as an empowered yogakaraka is very beneficial in politics and career

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

2005 quadruple bypass and radical new diet. Having throughout his adult life carried a good deal of 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.* Shani-Budha period * Budha rogesha-6 * Budha youthfulness

Nov-2016 USA presidential election. Hillary Clinton POTUS-45 * Shani-Rahu period * ANOTHER exhausting campaign cycle in the presidential election followed by a grudging defeat for Hillary Clinton * uttama-Rahu-yuti-Chandra yuvatipathi-7 * Rahu's ruler Yogakaraka nichha-Zukra vidyapathi-5 and karmesha-10


  • Chandra ruler of Shani-yuti-Budha-7 = uttama-Chandra-yuti-uttama-Rahu residing in the fruitful 11th-from-7th.
  • A superbly gainful and social-material-goal oriented marriage.

Lagnesha Shani-7 indicates Longevity in marriage via a profound identification with the marriage which is also the foundation of career. It is not perfect due to rogesha-6 Budha also in 7, but it is quite a substantial 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.)

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

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 (total five for her Rahu-yuti-Chandra) and being raised in the somewhat nationally stigmatized culture of working class Arkansas.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu -11 does not damage the economic revenue since Mangala ruler of 11 occupies 11th-from-11th yuti-Zukra ruler of 5-and-10. No problem.
