Punarvasu * Aditya * Purnavasi * Vutvrta * Jamitra
For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru 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 Brihaspati-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, 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.
Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.
High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.
Instructing, Explaining, Describing
Mithunaya pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.
Karkata-pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.
Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing (due to Brihaspati rules 6).
Themes of restoration of lost knowledge, gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81
"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

SHANI MAHADASHA * The Structure of DutyChurchill's Routine during the Last Decade of his life
"Despite all this activity, Churchill's daily routine changed little during these years.
He awoke about 7:30 a.m. and remained in bed for a substantial breakfast and reading of mail and all the national newspapers. For the next couple of hours, still in bed, he worked, dictating to his secretaries.
At 11:00 a.m., he arose, bathed, and perhaps took a walk around the garden, and took a weak whisky and soda to his study.
At 1:00 p.m. he joined guests and family for a three-course lunch. Clementine drank claret, Winston champagne, preferably Pol Roger served at a specific temperature, port brandy and cigars. When lunch ended, about 3:30 p.m. he returned to his study to work, or supervised work on his estate, or played cards or backgammon with Clementine.
At 5:00 p.m., after another weak whisky and soda, he went to bed for an hour and a half. He said this siesta, a habit gained in Cuba, allowed him to work 1 1/2 days in every 24 hours. At 6:30 p.m. he awoke, bathed again, and dressed for dinner at 8:00 p.m.
Dinner was the focal-point and highlight of Churchill's day. Table talk, dominated by Churchill, was as important as the meal. Sometimes, depending on the company, drinks and cigars extended the event well past midnight.
The guests retired, Churchill returned to his study for another hour or so of work."

|Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Dad = Lord Randolph Churchill a volatile, occasionally brilliant, aristocratic politician of mixed reputation.
Mom = Jenny Jerome from Brooklyn, NY, daughter of an American businessman, called after her first marriage Lady Churchill.
Chandra-2 = a natural storyteller.
Yogakaraka Kuja rules 5-politics, creativity, fame ++ 10-leadership, social authority, visibility
Mangala rules Vargottamsha Rahu-Meza in 10th-Navamsha indicating championship power in times of war
Punarvasu birth makes a gifted writer ++ Mangala-Kanya directs the writing into topics of logistics, tactics, strategy, argumentation, battle plans, and most of all retrospective accurate but accusative criticism of mistakes
Karmesha-Mangala = career
Churchill became a war-related professional immediately after completing school when he joined the British military as a young officer.
He developed into a fervent (and popular) war journalist (Mangala-Kanya-3), sending detailed descriptions of British Army battles around the world to avid readers of English newspapers.
Mangala-Kanya ** mountains of factual detail - and careful analysis of it
after a somewhat frustrating career in war journalism Mangala-Kanya, and a very demanding era as Prime Minister, Churchill chose to write mainly about History and Government from an acerbically critical perspective Kanya.
Budha-yuti-Guru-yuti-Ketu writes voluminous correspondence, deliver reports, articulate announcements; radio, newspaper, short articles
Legendary, voluminous exchange of letters written from the battlefield to-and-from his wife Clementine;
Guru-yuti-Budha-yuti-Ketu-4 * Churchill was considered an rudely unpleasant man by many of his colleagues Yet in a time of desperation, it was his unique voice which strengthened the citizens' faith in themselves and their destiny as a free people
Guru-Thula many deals, matches, negotiation about the homeland-4 with scattering Ketu and with articulatory Budha. Often talking for the sake of talking and with few boundaries of politeness due to the boundariless Guru-yuti-Ketu and the diveersely chatty Guru-yuti-Budha .
Guru Mahadasha * age 55.9 until age 71.9 * 1930 until 1946 encompassing WW-2
1929-1939 = Churchill's so-called Wilderness Years of exclusion from political life = Guru-Guru swabhukti until Guru-Zukra bhukti. Jyotisha would reckon this bhukti as 1930-1938 = the first half of 16 years of Guru Mahadasha.
Guru rules 6-war, animosity, hostility, dissolution of trust, accusations, unfair conditions
Guru rules 9-guidance, wisdom, ideology, paradigm of belief, highest principles, global humanism
Optimistic and expansive Guru typically produces a double-edged sword effect for the Karkata nativity.
Bhava-6 Dhanuzya = Guru's mulatrikona which gives the priority effect (unless there are very strong graha in Meena, which this nativity does not show).
Churchill first experienced the effects of Brihaspati as rogesha, including an uncharacteristic extramarital affair with a London socialite 1933-1937 = Guru-Shani until Guru-Ketu (Lady Castlerosse, Ms. Delevingne) to express the contract-breaking capabilities of the rogesha even with his staunchly loyal Shan-Makara-7. Guru rules Meena = 8th-from Simha Chandra suggesting emotional secrecy. Zukra-yuti-Surya creates the pattern for two significant feminine peer-figures.
The second phase activates Bhava-9 Meena. Phase-2 originates with the released outdated relationships of Guru-Ketu. Phase-2 began to produce its expected effects in 1939, when Church returned to prominence, and the rest is history. UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill guided + inspired not only Britain but also the entire Allied team during World War-2
Atmakaraka Zukra rules leadereship 10th-from-Chandra
Zukra suffers no dagdha-dosha.
Atmakaraka Zukra enters Meena 9th navamsha, showing his remarkable artistic talent in fine-arts drawing and painting..
Zukra-5 politics = uttama- atmakaraka in navamsha-10, Churchill rose to Prime Minister on the strength of his political negotiating skills.
Britain desperately needed military alliances and Churchill was the man of this highly dangerous hour. He deployed that rare combination of elegant social finesse plus brutal awareness (Vrischika) of the very realistic prospect for annihilation of Britain by the superior firepower of Nazi Germany
His skills emerged via political channels at a time of terrible war conditions in Britain. His familiarity with war realities(Vrischika understands terror) put him in a superb position to perform a nearly impossible job = protecting an exhausted and vulnerable Britain from the aggressive and well-equipped German aggressor.
Bearer of Bad News yet Energizer of Reborn Power
Churchill's leadership triumph under extreme duress of a losing defense (Ketu-4) can be traced ultimately to the relationship between Kanya-Kuja-3 announcements ++ Zukra-Vrischika in 3rd-from-3rd energies of rebirth and transformation. This pair allowed him to deliver bad news (3 + 5) about the realities of the war.
He used radio and writing of newspaper articles, his reliable media-communications toolkit to deliver the terrifying news in a steady, upper-class voice Chandra in classroom-2 -Simha grants an entitled, charismatic speech sonority.
Sugar in the Scare
Churchill was able to add a spoonful of sugar (Zukra) to the otherwise poisonous (Vrischika) news of the war. He was able to keep alive an imaginative vision of future harmony (uttama-Zukra) even when the frightening reality of war was clearly announced by Mangala-Kanya * Mangala in bhava-3.
Extraordinary Vrischika Zukra-5 rules friendships-11 ++ homeland-4. Zukra controls Guru+ Budha + Ketu-4 suggesting an in-and-out career.
Emotionally, measured from the lagna of Chandra-Simha, Zukra rules 3-communications ++ 10-leadership.
Wife-figure * Ms. Clementine "Clemmie" Hozier
Zukra-Jyeztha suggests that Churchill's wife would be a an independent woman, prone to assert her own incontrovertible seniority. Clemmie inherited aristocratic privilege and a peerage. The couple were framed to the public as mutually and exclusively devoted, yet they spent very considerable lengths of time apart. True to Jyeztha Mrs. Clementine Churchill did what she wanted, when she wanted.
Sir Churchill's Surya-Anuradha and Zukra-Jyeztha are far enough apart that Zukra does not suffer moudhya-dosha. Budha ruler of Jyeztha Budha-yuti-Ketu while Kuja lord of Vrizchika occupies Kanya-3, a position of verbal criticism and complaint.
Sweets and Liquors * Zukra
Churchill's alcoholism was chronicled in the literature written by him and about him. Clemmie also drank spirits, and likely so did most people whose nation was being bombed into hell. Yet Churchill's addiction did not encumber or cripple his leadership performance, his magnificent writing Punarvasu, or his fine arts painting. It does not therefore qualify as an addiction that harms one's life. It was simply his vigorously asserted entitlement (5) to a personal habit of taking sugary spirits throughout the day.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Sober, serious Shani drishti upon 9-father + 1-personality + 4-homeland = a tremendous work ethic, general grumpiness, reliability, brusque manner
Shani Mahadasha * age 71.9 until decease age 90 * stamina * enduring the German blitzkrieg
despite advanced age there remain heavy career responsibilities = Shani rules 10th-from-10th advising, contracts , negotiations, bargains, deals
stabilizing and protecting a weak and vulnerable Britain
7 = 4th-from-4th shell * shelter
Durokaraka Shani grants stodginess, stamina and endurance. During WorldWar-2, Shani randhresha-8 gave to Churchill the stamina to endure (Shani) the multi-year emergency (8) conditions caused by German blitzkrieg bombing attacks (8) on Britain.
Shani provided many karmic partners. Most of the alliances were effortful (Shani). Allies not only in the home government where Churchill's primary work was crafting of agreements. But also in the international war environment, the key players were each intractable and strictly demanding.
Shani-7 drishti 9=-father, 1-personality, 4-foundational culture, schooling = puts a karmic slow-freeze on his own personal faith. Yet he was able to inspire others in his own grumpy inimitable way = Shani drishti into the Budha-yuti-Ketu communicator pair in homeland-4.
The agreements would be accomplished then either resisted by the electorate via Shani or blown away in the winds of uncertainty of the collaborators via Ketu.
The British citizenry (4) were still exhausted from the recent carnage of WorldWar-1, and mustering another defense (4) with a decimated military was not easy. In fact, the Nazi attackers were expecting that their invasion would be trivially easy due to the exhausted state of the defense.
Shani blocked the consciousness that would have facilitated a quicker British uptake of military innovations and blocked the fundamental changes in the rigid class system that were essential to distribute leadership according to intelligence -- not rank at birth. Churchill was himself of the rank-at-birth mentality therefore he could be said to have been an agent of resistance to change, and in fact was leery of North American involvement initially since the Yanks et al had so little respect for tradition.
Yet with the erratically arriving defenses (Ketu) just-barely-enough help from the USA and Canada (Guru-4 multiple defenses) plus other reluctant to engage (Ketu) and piecemeal supporters, the onslaught was rather miraculously overcome (Guru). Some historians consider Churchill to have been the savior of the free world, but other commentators emphasize his classist, obstreperous, hidebound privilege-seeking viewpoint as a considerable obstacle to success.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
His most visible career Rahu-10 during times of war and the salient expression of career was writing of reports, speeches, histories Mangala-3 rules 10
Rahu is super-powered for matters of ideological preaching, inspirational guidance, and patriarchal wisdom in 9th-from-Chandra
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu-4 Rarely saw either of his parents, although he had a great deal of information about them (Budha + Guru, much information) since they were socially prominent personalities
Guru-yuti-Ketu suicide of his eldest child (daughter Diana) Guru rules 2nd-from- 5th
