Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary:

For Pushyami births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can 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.

Instructional guidance is provided from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, they have a gift for combining local customs with larger social policy frameworks, most notably law.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and respected for their culturally sensitive judgment. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushyami.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"An earnest, thoughtful character,

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

  • and a supporter of church and religious activities.

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."

"A respected and honorable person,

  • clean and wholesome in thought and deed;

Prominent Features of the Nativity


Karkata = Chandra lagnesha parenting

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • 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
  • Surya-Mithunaya * Mithra * neighbor, companion


Dad = POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush . Typical of Surya-12, Dad was not around very much during the upbringing. Dad was the director of the USA espionage department, the Central Intelligence Agency CIA. Spying = 12.

Within the combined D-1 and D-9, Surya and Chandra (father and mother) rule a spectacular total of eleven grahaQUOTATION Behari commentary = 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."

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka lagnesha

  • Chandra in classroom-3 * comfort in cohort, familiar with communication, conversation, parlor, soothed by siblings, intuitive information delivery, routine messaging; undulating signals
  • Chandra-Kanya * comforted by rhythmic remedial service
  • Chandra in Chitra * comforted by designing pursuits * protectors of dynamic architecture, dominating arrangements, progressive rebalancing
  • Somana-yuti-Guru * Emotionally effusive, needs to expand, sensitive to guidance figures, feels like a teacher-preacher


Mom = POTUS-pair-41; POTUS-43 mother 1925-2018 Barbara Bush

Chandra rules the patriotic power of country-loving Karkata lagna

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).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka

  • Mangala-Singha * vigorous pursuit of fame, creative political championship, proactive, drama; push toward entitlement
  • Mangala in bhava-2 * drive toward values lineage, pursuit of treasuries, energized face-speech-song, aggressive family hoarding, vigorous capitalization-banking, storage, assets, conservation, family dynamics, acquisitive conquests

Yogakaraka karmesha Kuja = 10- governance ++ 5 political elections

Kuja rules Arudha lagna Vrischika bhava-5 politics

Kuja rules swamsha

Vrizchika swamsha 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

warlike and honorable speech of competitive Kuja in dhanabhava

Yogakaraka Kuja-Simha-2 = treasury and political power of the birth family

Yogakaraka Angarika benefits Speech-2

  • family of origin, treasuries, and speech. The family are a political lineage of significant treasure-holding capacity.

  • While George W. Bush is often criticized by intellectuals for his halting, contradictory, and seemingly uneducated speech Mangala in bhava-2 Bush's verbal emanations are popularly perceived as honest and believable by the American majority.

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 Vidyapthi-5!

  • However, both the intelligence and the true excellence of this remarkable Kuja are somewhat tarnished by its proximity to fallen Guru.

  • Kuja does occupy the superior degree of Makara, reducing Guru's negative influence somewhat. Fallen planets are also weak by nature.

The negative influence from fallen Guru creates some tainted partnerships in the leadership arena, due to Rogesha-6 for enemies occupying the 7th house of advisors.

There is a need to form alliances with those who are hostile to him. Note Rogesha-6 -Guru is also yuti lagnesha in radix, .(Varga charts must confirm existing D-1/D-9 traits.)

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

patriotic lagnesha Chandra holds parivartamsha yoga with bhratrupathi-3 media-communications Budha.

Budha rules Chandra + Surya (parents)

  • Budha-Karkata * comfortable communications, articulation of rhythmic root culture, security, foundations, customary pronouncements, messages about protection and nourishment
  • Budha in bhava-1 * digbala * narrative of appearance, describer of embodiment, explainer of tangible self, delivers instructions for physical identity
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * articulation of equity in agreements, message of justice and fairly bargained contracts; songwriting , talkative sister
  • Budha-yuti-Shani * articulation of maturity and responsibility, message of institutional order, talkative elders

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


Raja Yoga

drishti of BOTH Yogakaraka Mangala bandesha+dharmesha-9 AND Guru dharmesha-9 upon Karakamsha dharmabhava Meena * 5th-from-5th elite politics

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.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Atmakaraka = Zukra (balance, harmony, alliances, bargains, deals = financial treasury

bandesha-4 Zukra in in radical Karkata lagna = publicly identified with Love of Country

Zukra kalatrakaraka

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 the effect of Mrs. Laura Bush in the wifely role. 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 vriddhipati-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. One 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.

  • Zukra and Shani are exceptionally strong in lagna; and Shani flourishes in Shani-ruled Pushya Nakshatra especially in a kendra.

In D-9, Vrizchika = swamsha.

Marriage is perceived as a deeply confidential, almost secret relationship between the two partners [Vrischika].

  • behavior in marriage = lord of Vrizchika = Kuja/Simha/2.

  • aristocratic and self-entered in marriage and powerfully directed in marriage behaviors by the royal identity of his family history.

  • Mangala = bhratru-karaka. Brothers have a strong influence upon G.W.'s decisions

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.

  • Shani = yuvatipathi-7 = social-material character of partner (conservative, sober, and closely identified with the native and his role in the world)

  • when the yuvatipathi-7 occupies lagna, the native will always derive a strong social identity from the marriage partner. She is his rock, quite literally.

  • Zukra = Lord of 7th-navamsha = psycho-emotional conditions of spouse.

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."

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-1 * must act under pressure, move but slowly, push forward against resistance; cautious, conventional identity; chronic impeded movement
  • Shani-yuti-Budha * resistance against signaling, disciplined messaging, constrained communication
  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity, contractual discipline, constrained harmony

Shani-ruled Pushya Nakshatra = dignified Nakshatra granting patriotism, public responsibilities in large organizations and a natural inclination toward governance duties

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

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.

  • Mr. Bush = beholden to an influential elite of exceptionally high-income marketplace players to whom he has been connected since birth (11)

  • uttama-Rahu-Vrizabha in labha bhava * marketplace earnings, yuti Zukra-ruler-of-Rahu strong in lagna, show this intimate connection to the capitalized global marketplace.

Craving for marketplace profit

ambitious, high-income friends

Importance-seeking Rahu pursues privilege and social mobility via 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.

  • Rahu-11 produces social + financial ascendance via marketplace connections

  • the native can network effectively among people of many different cultural persuasions, building large social change movements and personal profit as well.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu in classroom-5 * ambivalent toward entitlements, absentee children, disregards political boundaries, eccentric unsustainable cut-off intelligence, dissolves the game, disperses the creative intelligence
  • Ketu-Vrizchika * uttama * incomplete discovery, empty secrets, dissolute penetrations, not limited by catastrophic change, ignores restriction on initiations

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Anuradha * Maitra

BPL commentary:

For Anuradha gentlewomen, 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.

Shani -ruled Maitra ladies benefit from the mutually supportive alliance between Shani and kalatra-karaka Zukra, and their energetic response to dangerous challenges is a gift from their Kuja lagnesha. They specialize in emergency repair of damaged relationships and arbitration of angry disputes. Aniruddha are known for safe handling of secret threats. This talent often places Anuradha women into high-stakes roles such as political or executive partner.

Professionally, Aniruddha women thrive where their ability to graciously impose lawful compliance in volatile circumstances is rewarded and respected. They often take elite positions in government regulatory agencies, in emergency medical professions, in law firms, and in the safety and insurance industries.

Themes of damage-control, risk mitigation, and orderly response to dangerous conditions may contextualize Anuradha's terrestrial experience.. Also applied to Chandra in Anuradha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 98

"A gay and fun-loving type, clever and witty.

She will always be surrounded by an admiring circle of friends

  • and her popularity will cause envy and malice

  • among those who are not included in this circle.

Her married and domestic life

  • will be very happy.

She will be devoted to her family and faithful to her husband,

  • unless the Seventh House of the Life Chart is badly afflicted.

  • In which case, although she loves her husband, some misunderstanding will result in a divorce."

  • Rahu-Vrizabha * uttama * craving for preserved collections, treasure-hoards * mask of historic conservatism; fascinated by banking, hoarding * seeks special importance via accrued values, via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) stored acquisitions
  • 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. Powerful placement for career position via instrumental alliances.

Rahu-7 typically indicates that the lifepartner's personality or social role is vividly, ambitiously dominant, while the Ketu-1 native is by contrast a disinterested, perhaps even dissociated, figure who is nevertheless essential to the union

P. V. R. Narasimha Rao writing at says:

"... Parashara and Jaimini taught that the 11th and 12th houses from AL show financial gains and expenditures."

Public Illusion

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 .

  • Arudha Lagna . = Vrizchika [Ketu] = bhava-5

  • 10th-from-Arudha lagna = reputation

    =Simha, bhava-2

  • = family history, hoarded wealth

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.

  • Since such impressions are usually formed about materially successful people, malefics in the 3rd and 6th from AL make one bold and materially successful."

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.

  • Commentators have opined that Mr. Bush's weakness as President was his inability to accept negative information from his team (3) of advisors.

  • Thus his administrative effectiveness (3) was severely compromised through psychological denial (Shani) and insistence on sweet (Zukra) news (Budha) only.

6th-from-AL = Mesha, bhava-10. Unoccupied, Professor Kuja = strong in bhava-2 = death and wealth.

  • G.W.'s boldness is perceived to be strategic , only used when it can increase his family affluence or protect The treasury of those who share his own values and interests. In general, G.W.'s boldness was considered insufficient, inconsistent, and ineffective.

  • (His popularity ratings toward the end of his final term of office were amongst the lowest of any US President in history.)

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 shows one's career and the true nature of one's karma (work).

  • The 10th house from AL in D-10 shows perceptions about one's conduct in society.

It deals more with one's status in career."

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.

Like USA-Sen-Tenn VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore , his opponent in the bitter 2000 POTUS-43 election contest, G. W. Bush has a strong and complex personality.

Rulers of radical bhava 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, and 12 occupy kalpasthana-Karkata-1. 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 Krittika father POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 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.

  • This underlying ambivalence is represented via nichha-Guru + uttama-Kuja in dazamamza-10 . Yet Kuja is so extremely strong that political achievement of the highest order is guaranteed.

Vimshottari Dasha Narrative: Bush_GeorgeW_dasha1.GIF

Mahadasha of Guru

age 24-40

rogesha-6 * dharmesha-9 from lagna

lagnesha-1 * bandesha-4 from Chandra

  • Guru and Budha are mutually unfriendly graha. Guru's breadth of perspective and characteristic inclusiveness is contradicted and minimized by Budha's fixation on small conversational details.

  • Therefore Guru is naturally weak in Kanya rashi. Yet lord Budha is strong in lagna. Budha becomes double-strong from the parivartamsha with lagnesha Chandra. Guru benefits from the acquired strength of his lord Budha and also Guru benefits from Brihaspati's intimate relationship with lagnesha Chandra. Therefore emotionally it could be expected that things would in general go well, with some glitches during bhuktis of graha who occupy difficult angles vis--vis Guru.

  • In Bush's case there are only two disadvantageous angles from Guru: Ketu and Kuja. Therefore except for the Guru/Ketu and Guru/Kuja bhuktis, it should have been a fine time in his life. Generally speaking, for a young man age 25-40, Bush had everything needed: wife, family, business opportunities, and money.

  • General pattern of the Guru Mahadasha included both The rogesha-6 effects (alcoholism and business debt) as well as blessings of dharmesha-9 = powerful connections to the world created by his father. Guru is naturally also the karaka for religion and children.

Guru/Rahu bhukti age 40

  • 1986: G.W. Bush experiences a self-described Christian religious conversion, and takes a consecrated vow of abstinence from alcohol.

Mahadasha of yuvatipathi-7 +randhresha-8 Shani

  • age 40-59

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.

Shani-Rahu bhukti

As ballots were being counted for the 2000 POTUS-43 election, GW entered Shani-Rahu bhukti while samchara Rahu-Ketu via 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.

  • Rahu occupies the gainful 11th-from-mahadasha Shani, a predictor that the outcome of Shani/Rahu bhukti must be gainful .

  • Taurus Rahu has massive strength for business and

    political connections.

In the lives of those lacking Kala Sarpa yoga, Saturn/Rahu is normally a very difficult life bhukti 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 bhukti 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 bhukti an era of astounding political success!

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.

Thank you,

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."
