Masculine Nativities

Visaka * Radha

BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.

Growth Shocks

Thula-Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles (Zukra) which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm (Guru) . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.

Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Zukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Thula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick (due to Guru rules 3-6).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

"... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

Distinctive features of the nativity
  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin suffered a lifetime pattern of stress-related skin diseases (Shani rues Kumbha-8), injuries, digestive ailments, stoutness despite physical discipline (Shani-6) He suffered several debilitating strokes toward the end of his life. However typical of graha in 6 these were chronic issues and not deadly. Like his father who died suddenly of cerebral hemorrhage, Lenin was killed by a series of strokes immediately at the onset of Shani-Shani swabhukti due to Shani maraka rules 7..

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin was a sober ideologue (Mula-Shani-3) who passionately believed in the power of communist theory to right the terrible injustices of capitalistic exploitation. He pursued large-scale conflict as the medicine intended to cure class-rank imbalances but the scale of this "acquisitiveness " problem (Vrishabha) being psychological rather than political, Lenin's approach simply expanded the scope (Guru) of the exploitation.

Surya in bhava-7 occupies the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra

Lenin's father was originally a classroom teacher of maths and physics (Surya in 4th-from-4th). He became inspector of primary schools in Simbirsk. He was admired as a champion Surya-Meza of national public education for all peoples, education for women, and access for the& poor.

Somana-yuti-Ketu

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership expectations

& Empowered Rahu in bhava-10 occupies 7th-from the highly habitual Somana-yuti-Ketu

Until his death age 53, Lenin remained officially married to his legal first life-mate, Comrade Nadezhda Konstantinovna . While married, he is said to have conducted several important affairs du coeur. Reportedly he offered a marriage proposal to a cherished lover, Apollinariya Yakubova. She refused his offer, which according to wife-1 made him depressed and demoralized. Another long-term lover died of cholera after 10 years' romance, again without accepting his troth.

Lagnesha Zukra-5 in 2nd-from-Chandra would have made Lenin a great romantic, dreaming always of the fulfillment (lagnesha) expected via the potential second marriage. However, Zukra has no companion graha, and in navamsha Zukra is constrained by Shani. If there would be a second marriage at all, it would occur likely in elder years. Lenin died at 53, too early to realize Shani's delayed potential.

Although Lenin took several live-in lovers during their long-lasting but emotionally distant marriage Somana-yuti-Ketu , Nadya shared his passion for the Revolution and accepted the vicissitudes. Each substantially supported the other's career achievements.


Lenin married only once to an ideological colleague with a strong leadership agenda, Nadezhda Konstantinovna Krupskaya became a powerful leader, serving as Minister of Education in the Government of the Soviet Union = Rahu-Karkata education The first marriage was preserved for instrumental reasons (Rahu) including the masquerade required by the cult of the great and moral (Karkata) leader which was built around him = Rahu in bhava-10.

  • During Rahu-Ketu bhukti, Vladi met his wife during a banishment to Siberia (Ketu) They married during the following Rahu-Zukra bhukti, and remained within the marriage contract throughout his life. As a party leader and later as minister of education, Krupskaya had high social standing. She accompanied Lenin regularly at public events. However, the couple often lived separately (in separate countries) or cohabited with liaisons. They produced no children.

Chandra-4 property

Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin during his regime nationalized all property and assets in Soviet Russia creating a massive collection (Vrishabha) of public wealth, yet disregarding the human instinct to possess own-wealth the bloated system generated corruption (6), starvation and crippling poverty for exploited rural workers (6).

  • "He died suddenly at 6:50 p.m. on Jan. 21, 1924, a few months before his 54th birthday. The cause of death: a massive stroke."

The stroke was preceded by several days of intensely painful seizures. Some scholars suspect that Lenin was fatally poisoned, and the poisoner is believed as the jealous, violently narcissistic, Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin "Man of Steel". Jyotisha would suggest that his sarala yoga probably protected against poisoning and the material cause of death was more like the same type of massive cerebral hemorrhage that killed Lenin's father. Note his brain swelling in photos taken during his final time.

Thrilling hunger for high-recognition, empowered reputation, respect. Ambition of the father's family

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
