POTUS-43 Decision Points George W. Bush |
Prominent Features of the Nativity
post-presidential GW Bush, 2015
Yogakaraka Kuja in Simha-2 = wealth and political power of the birth family
Shani-ruled Pushya Nakshatra = dignified Nakshatra granting patriotism, public responsibilities in large organizations and a natural inclination toward governance duties
Vrizchika Navamsha lagna gives intuitive abilities to make contracts, alliances, and treaties. G.W. is a born deal-maker, which innate ability (navamsha shows innate abilities) has surely served him well in a lifetime of political negotiations. Ketu in bhava-5
Atmakaraka = Zukra (balance, harmony, alliances, bargains, deals = financial wealth )
Sun-Moon rule a spectacular total of eleven graha within radix and navamsha
Ruler of Surya and Chandra = Budha in radical Karkata lagna
patriotic power of country-loving Karkata lagna compare to
bandesha-4 Zukra in in radical Karkata lagna = publicly identified with Love of Country
warlike and honorable speech of Yogakaraka Mars in dhanabhava
nichha-bhanga Shani in the nodal axis, in the tenth D-10. (receiving nichha banga due to kendra position with dispositor Mars exalted.)
Kuja, the Yogakaraka radix 10th lord, is exalted, very favorable for business and government careers, giving high levels of achievement.
Kuja = karmapathi in both D-1 and D-10.AND Kuja occupies 10th-from-10th in dazamamza-10 - confirming GW's world-leader status.
Shani/Kuja are in mutual aspect and parivartamsha, which tremendously strengthens Shani 's naturally shy, publicity-shunning tendencies - but also amplifies the power of Ketu-Rahu.
Note the sacrificial Kala-sarpa yoga * Visha-dhara-type based in 11-economic gainfulness.
Shani-yuti-Ketu also reveals how unforeseen (Ketu) mass-death (Shani) disasters (Shani+Ketu) with racial tension (nichha Shani, blood hatred) have marked his presidency.
First the Sept-11 crisis with its 1st world-3rd world ethnic conflict followed by Hurricane Katrina with its keynote racial discrimination (a repeat of the 1st world-3rd world conflict, occurring entirely within the United States).
Public-service marker Kala-Sarpa yoga often requires the sacrifice of one's own personal tastes in order to respond to the wishes of the tribe, the family, the village, or the polity. Rahu's rashi + bhava indicate to whom the native feels most beholden, and into which circle of society one most desires to enter.
|upapada|| Steps: |
bhava-12 = Mithunaya. To find Budha, the lord of Mithunaya, count"2" to reach Budha in his bhava-1. To find the upa-pada, count"2"again to reach the 2nd-from-Budha. Result: Simha bhava-2 containing yogakaraka Mangala.
The private aspects of the marriage relationship are sexually energized (Kuja) dynamic, celebrity-seeking and politicized in context of the family of origin (kutumbha-bhava-2). However the private marital relations may erupt into fighting (Mangala).
Ruler of the bhava-2 = Surya-Mithuna =
"Your mind will remain an enigma to the world and your personality can only be gauged by what you accomplish.
You will have no friends to call your own, and your life will be very austere.
Your movements will also be very restricted."
P. V. R. Narasimha Rao writing at www.vedicastrologer.org says:
"... Parashara and Jaimini taught that the 11th and 12th houses from AL show financial gains and expenditures."
Two Papa-kartari yoga :
one occurrence of PKY"pinches " the radical lagna (Karkata) giving a daunting and relentless set of leadership responsibilities since early adulthood -- which he really does not enjoy (Shani in lagna getting the pinch);
another PKY hems in the 12th bhava of distant lands, putting pressure on his ability to maintain good international relations. (The USA's international reputation was not favorable during his administration, due in part to perceived American arrogance and selfishness = Bush's Surya in 12).
| Arudha lagna |
For a highly placed public figure in the modern age, whose effectiveness is determined less by their true character and actions and more the public's perception of their character and actions, can be seen via the Arudha Lagna .
GAIN: G.W.'s AL = Vrischika, bhava-5. 11th-from-AL = Kanya, with expansive Chandra-yuti-Guru = perceived gainfulness. Bush is perceived as the scion of one of the historically wealthiest families in USA. Family holdings of land and mineral rights date back to the late 1800's, and contemporary wealth includes deep investment in international banking.
LOSS: G.W.'s AL = Vrischika, bhava-5. 12th-from-AL = Thula, unoccupied, Professor Zukra + Shani-yuti-Budha. Losses would appear to be minimal , controlled by Shani.
P. V. R. Narasimha Rao says,
"Natural malefics in the 3rd and 6th houses from AL show someone who is perceived as a bold person who hits enemies hard.
Arudha Lagna Vrizchika * bhava-5 containing Ketu
3rd-from-AL = Makara, bhava-7, unoccupied, Professor Shani in lagna + Zukra-yuti-Budha. Shani signifies restraint, Budha = talk not action, Zukra = sweet relationships.
6th-from-AL = Mesha, bhava-10. Unoccupied, Professor Kuja = strong in bhava-2 = death and wealth.
10th-from-Arudha Lagna . -within-D-10 = Makara, containing the nichha-Guru + the uttama-Kuja. So, a"mixed bag". The career is clearly of an extremely prestigious nature, e.g., President of the USA at a time when USA was the dominant nation-state in the global political network. Bush was able to conduct matters of office with competitive, corporate savvy. He always looked distinguished and was treated with respect in all venues (except perhaps toward the end in summer 2008, when someone threw a shoe at him!)
Toward the exhausted end, as gochara Guru entered Makara in 2008, G.W.'s public respect levels dropped, and his career dwindled not quite into disgrace but certainly in a national mood of disappointment. The public despaired of the quality of his performance. Disrespect was widely expressed for his weakness in mismanaging both domestic and international affairs, leading to economic depression and an unethical, wildly expensive war -while Bush seemed "checked out" in a state of apathy.
P. V. R. Narasimha Rao says,
"The 10th house from lagna in D-10 shows one's true conduct in society.
It deals more with one's status in career."
|Attitude toward Marriage|| |
Mrs. Laura Bush worked as an elementary school teacher and later as a school librarian before embarking on a full-time assignment as a political wife. Mr. Bush's Zukra-1 is dominated by Shani and Budha, and his Budha furthermore enjoys parivartamsha with lagnesha Chandra. It is the Chandra-Budha exchange which best defines Mrs. Laura Bush. Zukra is in a highly complex situation. Zukra is however GW's bandesha-4 = schoolteachers. The couple is said to have met at a backyard outdoor party at the home (Chandra) of friends (Zukra L-11).
Mrs. Bush has said of their first meeting and quick marriage, that it was remarkable how many elements of their lives "fit together". Presumably something in her style of movement (1) triggered GW's recognition that this person was his wife-for-life.
In D-1, both marriage-karaka Zukra and yuvatipathi-7 Shani inhabit the lagna. This friendly pair bode well for a lawful, long-lasting, and reasonably well balanced hard-working marriage partnership. the native is personality-identified to the status of socially identified with the status attribute of being a married man. Shani discourages any instinct to break the marriage contract.
In D-9, Vrizchika = navamsha lagna.
Marriage is perceived as a deeply confidential, almost secret relationship between the two partners [Vrischika].
The determining factor in G.W. Bush's ability to remain abstinent from alcohol is reputed to be his steady and sober wife Laura Bush.
Both Shani and Zukra gain great power during Bush's Shani Mahadasha.
|BPHS Ch.12, shloka 4|| |
[Zukra in lagna]"A benefic in Lagna will give a pleasing appearance, while a malefic will make one bereft of good appearance."
D-10 - dazamamza-10 = remarkably powerful.
The dazamamza-10 confirms and elaborates features relating to public reputation, visibility, and intent to assume positions in top-down social structures. These features must be already present in radix and navamsha charts; the dazamamza-10 is not inherently predictive but rather confirming of predictions based on features of D-1 and D-9.
Radix lagnesha Chandra has become a very highly empowered graha via parivartamsha yoga with Budha.
When good things happen to Chandra, good things also happen to Chandra's rashi.
Any of G.W.'s varga in which Karka is rising will do well because of the blessings attending to Chandra in radix.
Kuja= dazamamza-10 vidyapathi-5 for intelligence.
Kuja's aspect upon D-10's karmasthana shows that G.W. exhibits intelligence in his leadership style, makes intelligent choices in public policy etc. He has been consistently"lucky" in public office, very much the effect of a strong career L-5!
The negative influence from fallen Guru creates some tainted partnerships in the leadership arena, due to L6 for enemies occupying the 7th house of advisors.
There is a need to form alliances with those who are hostile to him. Note L6-Guru is also yuti lagnesha in radix, .(Varga charts must confirm existing D-1/D-9 traits.)
| Craving for marketplace profit
= self-elevation via social global networking, earning a high price for one's labor in the marketplace, unusual elder sibling, many foreign friends, attending very large assembly events, political activism and association with high earners.
Like VPOTUS-42 Climate Change Al Gore , his opponent in the bitter 2000 POTUS-43 election, G. W. Bush has a strong and complex personality.
Rulers of radical bhava 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, and 12 occupy the radical lagna. Heavy traffic around the navamsha Chandra yuti Mangala, Shani, Guru, and Rahu-Singha navamsha-10. Mr. GW Bush needs to use national stage in order to develop his personal drama.
Other good news is that G.W. is in no danger of being assassinated while POTUS-43. His Vimshottari dasha for 2001-2008 excludes bhukti of either 2nd or 7th lords, and unlike other public figures who are in the line of fire, there is no rising kharesha.
| It is probably true that GW Bush is ambivalent about his extraordinary power as a world leader. He is a man of the people (Shani in lagna); not a natural elitist like his Uttarabhadra father POTUS-41 All the Best George H. W. Bush |
Yet the Karakamsha = dharma bhava; #43 was born into a lineage, and he had a destiny to fulfill. It is well-known that the foundation for GW's success is the ancestral power and position of his financially privileged father and grandfather ( Guru = dharmesha-9 in radix) and their political backers.
Vimshottari Dasha Narrative:
rogesha-6 * dharmesha-9 from lagna
lagnesha-1 * bandesha-4 from Chandra
Guru/Rahu period age 40
Mahadasha of yuvatipathi-7 +randhresha-8 Shani
As G. W. entered his 40th decade, mahadasha of his amazing Shani began.
G. W. was elected governor of Texas in Nov.1994 Shani/Zukra;
and re-elected governor in 1998 Shani/Chandra.
Parivartamsha yoga of Budha + lagnesha Chandra creates a very favorable public relations impression of parochialism and patriotism (Chandra) along with a homelike verbal charm (Budha)
G. W. comes from a financially privileged east-coast family which has substantial business interests in Texas but their cultural homeland is the blue-blood estate world of New England.
G. W. like all the Bush children was born in Connecticut. Nevertheless G. W. married a native Texan wife and was a highly popular governor perceived to be a native son.
As ballots were being counted for the 2000 POTUS-43 election, GW entered Shani-Rahu period while Rahu-Ketu transited Mithuna/Dhanus.
Not a dangerous nodal axis for GW, but considering Shani's engagement with Ketu-Rahu in dazamamza-10 , the election would be highly irregular and resolved only by a supreme court decision - in his favor, of course, since the nodes really were in a non-dangerous place at the time, and GW's Shani is very strong!
Elected with very limited popular support yet an obvious mandate from America's super-financially privileged"overclass ", G.W. appeared to face poor political prospects as the leader of a democratic country with a huge middle class.
True to Rahu, the Sept-11 crisis soon occurred which temporarily erased internal American class divisions and bonded all peoples against a common enemy. GW's approval ratings went sky-high.
In the lives of those lacking Kala Sarpa yoga, Saturn/Rahu is normally a very difficult life period which can plunge the individual into suicidal despair .
However in a time of national frustration (with a fraudulent election) GW relied on his family's huge financial power base. Shortly afterward, in a period of national desperation and fear G.W. hit the political jackpot, turning crisis of"Sept-11" World Trade Center terrorist bombing into a strong political base.
His popular approval ratings rose extremely high during the two years following the crisis, making his Shani/Rahu period an era of astounding political success!
Yogakaraka Angarika benefits Speech-2
|A little 2006 political humor:|| |
"Dear Friends and Relatives:
I have the distinguished honor of being on the committee to raise $5,000,000 for a monument of George W. Bush. We originally wanted to put him on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two more faces.
We then decided to erect a statue of George in the Washington, D. C. Hall Of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Richard Nixon, who never told the truth, since George W. could never tell the difference.
We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Republican of them all. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else's money.
George W. Bush Monument Committee"
"The 23rd Qualm"
"Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.
" He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.
" He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness. He restoreth my fears.
" He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace for his ego's sake.
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war, I will find no exit, for thou art in office.
"Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.
"Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.
"Thou annointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.
"Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me all the days of thy term,
"And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever."
