Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta

BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.

Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Although apparently tame personalities, Nirriti are emotionally comfortable with extreme risk. Often they go enthusiastically where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a surprising ability to convince others to grant them power - sometimes, absolute power. Mula's perception features a mix of ambivalence and apathy not only toward others but toward oneself. Liberated from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born under auspice of nakshatrapathi

Alakmi-born preach their paradigm of belief without concern for material consequences. Thus freed from worry, they can be guided entirely by ideology with little-or-no pragmatic constraint.

Often involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti may be associated with shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having almost no fear of death, Mula engage in self-destructive behavior. Patriarchal sponsors and patronage may be essential to their success. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of religious preaching, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, ideological indoctrination, radical military, politics, and organized crime.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace , and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman. (1992, 4th ed.). A Catechism of Astrology. Part II, p. 50 *

"Q, 73. What are the cumulative effects of Guru-Chandala Yoga? Are any remedies prescribed for neutralising the evil influences ?


The cumulative effects vary with reference to the strength of Guru and Rahu, the nature of the sign involved and the Bhava position. Therefore no general results can be ascribed. When the yoga is strong, and when the conjunction say is exact,

  • the subject will have no regard for spiritual values or he will have perverted views.

  • The conscience factor will be absent and the subject will be carried away by momentary considerations.

If the combination occurs in the 10th house, the person lacks moral courage;

  • if in the 12th house, spiritual aspirations will be directed in wrong channels;
  • in the 11th, the sting is removed;

  • in Lagna, moral character will be questionable

  • in the 5th house, lacks consideration and there will be sorrow through children.

The yoga in general does not obstruct material prosperity. Its importance is only in regard to to the spiritual, moral and religious aspect of human existence.

When Jupiter is strong, the yoga naturally becomes defunct .

No remedial measures are prescribed to alleviate the evils due to Guru-Chandala Yoga but regular practice of pranayama under a suitable Guru (preceptor or teacher) will doubtless act as an antidote."

from B.V. Raman. (1992, 4th ed.). A Catechism of Astrology. Part II, p. 50

"When Jupiter

  1. combines with a weak Saturn

  2. or when he joins Rahu

  3. or when he is along with Gulika ,

we have Guru-Chandala Yoga.

Some authors take that when

  • Jupiter becomes Gulika Bhavadhipa (lord of sign held by Gulika)

  • or Rahu Rasyadhipa (lord of sign held by Rahu),

we have Guru-Chandala Yoga.

Note that in all these cases, Jupiter must be weak and debilitated."

Distinctive features of the nativity

Parivartamsha yoga between Shani governance rules 2-death + 3-propaganda, plans ++ nichha-Guru rules 1-personality ++ 4-security, homeland, defense

Marx_red_square.pngSurya * pitrikaraka

  • Surya-Dhanuzya * Aditya * the unsplit, undivided
  • Surya in bhava-1 * center of identity, bright embodiment, intelligence for competition, focus on appearance, championship entitlements, eye on personality *sparkling center of the vitality-drama
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, creatively intelligent sibling-cohort, radiantly descriptive, articulate in drama and games, self-confident announcements, talks about politics
  • Surya-yuti-Zukra * confidently harmonious, brightly creative bargainer, artistic father-figure, uniquely intelligent sister-figures, entitled to pleasures, aesthetic expressions align with the spiritual rays of the Sun, financial politics, radiantly diplomatic, self-reflexively attractive features


Surya-Dhanuzya doctrine rules 9-sacred teaching ++ Budha-yuti-Zukra. This arrangement suggests that Stalin's father was an educated, literate, indoctrinator priest. Very likely, dad was the priest in whose home Stalin was largely raised, who monitored his schooling from a young age, and who assured Stalin's seminary training for priesthood.


The husband of Ketevan Geladze was a serf-born cobbler. His alcoholism destroyed his shoemaking business and his family. When Stalin's mother placed Josef into religious school, her husband (who was purportedly not Stalin's bio-father) went on a drunken rage.

Stalin rarely used his Jugashvili paternal surname. The father regularly kidnapped Josef from school, believing that the boy should learn a trade rather than literary nonsense. When Josef was 12, his father took him to a distant town and forced him to work in a shoe factory..

8th-from-Surya indicates stepfather. Ketu in classroom-8-Karkata suggests a lost person, a merchant of chaos, one prone to upheaval and senseless destruction. This bhava-8 figure is likely Stalin's purported father, the shoemaker to whom his mother was officially married.


Mula-Surya in bhava-1 is bright, confident, ideological, and in Mula capable of massive destruction via ideology, conviction, paradigm of belief.

  • Advertised in the West as a mercilessly cruel, satanic dictator, torturer, and genocidal murder of 20-million persons, Stalin was nevertheless admired and even worshipped in his homeland.
  • Stalin is remembered as a political party tyrant, premier of Soviet Union, mass murderer, who kept complete and unswerving control over a huge territory and massive government apparatus

Religion 9

Despite a reputation for unspeakable atrocity against his people, genocide, torture on a mass scale, 20 million lives extinguished... after the Church was violently suppressed, Stalin was worshipped as a living idol, father-figure, high priest of the national culture. Also Chandra in classroom-10 high visibility, apprehended as a parent-figure of deep humility Chandra-Kanya the child of those who work with their hands

After religion was banned in 1917, he waited until the crisis of WW-2 then re-opened the churches. However, he personally chose the 'metropolitans' of the Russian Orthodox Church which continued his media-message control.

Surya-yuti-Budha = ruler of 9 + 10 + 10th-from-10th

  • Budha occupies nakshatra of handsome Zukra + Mula-Surya-yuti-Zukra-Mula + Budha messaging
  • Stalin's media image carefully crafted via airbrushed photography with politically expedient deletions, heroic (Surya) cinema portrayals, and endless sloganistic propaganda made Stalin the center (Surya) of a Soviet cult of personality which lasted for nearly 30 years.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in Hasta-Savitra * comforted by soothing handwork * protectors of customary craft, skillful sheltering, manual cultivation, rhythmic management
  • Chandra-Kanya * comforted by rhythmic remedial service
  • Chandra in classroom-10 * comfort in order, familiar with protocol, rank, soothed by systems, routine leadership, settled into the rhythm of iconic roles, needs to feel the repeating pulse of visibility, recognition, respect; undulating lawfulness

MOTHER and Parentage

Born as a serf, Mom worked in the humble roles of laundrywoman and house-servant Chandra-Kanya. Initially she was said to have married a violently abusive cobbler whose shoemaking business had failed, and so she sought shelter in the home of her priest. It is more likely given Surya's condition that the kind priest in whose home little Ioseb was raised was indeed the father of Ioseb Besarionis Dze Jugashvili .

Stalin's mother Ketevan Geladze was born into a serf family although she was literate. She worked as a laundress, seamstress, and housecleaner for several Jewish merchants in Gori, as well as for the Orthodox cleric; as a result, Josef's parentage has been an open question.

"Soso"was a handsome Surya-yuti-Zukra and intelligent boy. Despite the violence of his childhood, he learned quickly. He was given clothes, books and money for tuition by mother's priestly employer. It seems likely that one of the merchants or priests associated with his mother may have been his actual father.

Chandra in classroom-10 indicates that his mother was very concerned with public dignity and social respect despite her humble situation. Chandra rogesha, ruling Ketu in classroom-8, suggests that the mother had a secret , which was likely the truth regarding Ioseb's paternity and which could also have enflamed the alcoholic rages of his stepfather the cobbler. Raised in a culture of lies and cover-ups designed to protect the public reputation at all costs, little Stalin would have learned that deception was essential to well-being (Chandra).

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • marriage-1 = bhava-4 motherhood, homeland * contains Shani maraka rules-2
  • Stalin's first wife = dressmaker and fellow Georgian Bolshevik activist, Ekaterina "Kato" Svanidzedied
  • At his age 27 (Rahu opposition) in 1906, Stalin married atelier-dressmaker and Georgian Bolshevik sympathizer, Ekaterina "Kato" Svanidze. Their church wedding was performed at 2 a.m. by a priest friend of Stalin's from seminary, due to Stalin living under an alias. His mother was not invited or informed.
  • 14 months after their wedding. The son born into this union was abandoned by Stalin, raised by his mother's relavtives, until the child was 20 years old


  • marriage-2 = bhava-11 community, economy, network of associations
  • Stalin's second wife Nadezhda Sergeevna Alliluyeva was a relative of his first wife's extended family. She was a networking activist, serving as Stalin's personal secretary, and mother of two of JS's children.
  • At the time of marriage, Nadya was 18 years old while Stalin was 41. Very bright pitrikaraka Mula Surya in bhava-1 rules 11, suggesting that Nadya was deeply identified with her husband as a father-figure, and his iconic status as the leader of massive Marxist-Leninist economic reforms (11)
  • She died by pistol shot, reckoned a suicide, six years after their wedding.
  • Given the intensity of Stalin's zero-empathy narcissism, it is not impossible that her death was simply one of his attributed 20-million murders.


Chandra in classroom-10 rules Ketu-8 revolution without end. Stalin was a brutally effective leader during a time of cataclysmic (8) change in the cultural and political foundations of the region. The reliable if miserable patterns of serfdom were fast-fading, but millions of people were unsure about the change. Enter a fierce dictator, primed by a Mula birth to use every weakness as leverage for complete annihilation of the past.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Vrizchika * Swakshetra * vigorous pursuit of secrets * proactive exploration * push toward discovery * champion of emergency action
  • Mangala in bhava-12 * drive toward privacy, pursuit of inner guidance, invaders from distant lands, hyperactive ancestors, seeking sanctuary, clairsentient dynamics, energized invisible conquests, phantoms of aggressive competition

Increasing paranoia drove many of Stalin's most vicious announcements, declaring that large swaths of the population -- or a few select individuals - should be liquidated, tortured, imprisoned -- due to their dangerous phantom in his mind

Typical of the childhoods of evil dictators, Stalin and his mother were severely beaten throughout Ioseb's childhood by his alcoholic, bankrupt father (who appears to have been his step-father). A survivor of violent childhood abuse, the emerging young political writer Ioseb adopted the nom-de-plume "Stalin * Man of Steel

Rahu-Shani until Rahu-Budha * Age 16-21 training for priesthood (Guru)

At his mother's insistence "Soso" trained for the priesthood in a Russian Orthodox seminary. His mother passionately wanted Soso to become a Bishop. Although a scholarship student and distinctively bright, at age 21 in 1899 young Stalin abandoned the final exams and was expelled. His mother was furious.

Rahu-Budha * Budha in bhava-1 writing

While in priest-training at the seminary, "Soso" discovered the revolutionary writings of Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin. His education took a radical turn. He gained a reputation as a skilled organizer, intellectual, and poet. Although the Georgian language was denigrated at the Russian-language seminary staffed by Russian priests, Stalin's adolescent Georgian poetry was published in local newspapers and quite popular with local fans. Rahu in bhava-2 language. Budha in bhava-1 would later make him a master of propaganda via the simple language of the working classes.
