  • QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

BPL commentary:

For Mriga-sirasa natives, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitors may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Orion.

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

Distinctive features of the nativity
  • VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore



Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya in bhava-11 * center of community, brightly earning, focus on economy, distributed light, eye on friendships
  • Surya-Meena * Bhaskara * the illuminator


Dad was a nationally-known USA Senator from Tennessee. Like most national politicians, Al Gore Senior (dad) was well networked socially and focused on material-social goal achievement (11) but he also had strong roots in his home state (Surya rules 4-home).

Surya rules swamsha, suggesting a personality similarity between father and son, and an at-birth affinity for politics.

Surya occupies the emotionally stable, educational, foundational 4th-from-Chandra, suggesting a reliable and grounded relationship with the father-figure.

Surya and Chandra hold 4-10 relative angles = enduring, stable, respectful relationship between father and mother.

Surya rules 4 childhood home

VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore's childhood was heavily dominated by the political (Surya) career of his father, an influential USA Senator from Tennessee. The son's Surya-Meena-11 is ruled by a powerful Guru-Dhanushya-8 transformative ideology. Both the son and the father spent the majority of their lives in the political capital of the USA, Washington DC.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-8 * comfort in crisis, familiar with catastrophic events, soothed by sudden changes, shock, initiation, discovery

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership Marriage for Chandra-8

The lifemate is typically most focused upon matters of family lineage, family treasury and financial collections, knowledge storage, and face-voice-mouth-eyes appearances. Bhava-2 receives drishti of Alaxmi Somana-yuti-Guru = not known for its self-restraint. Also 7th-from-Chandra is ruled by Budha-10 = lifemate's emotionalized broad capacity for verbal outflow. Some political observers blamed the ill-considered anti-creativity announcements of VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore to have sabotaged his political career.

Tipper Gore's Chandra-Kumbha occupies Al Gore's kumbha 7th-navamsha, showing the psychic depth of their link.

Surya-11-Meena = center of visionary networks

Al Gore is sometimes called "the father of the internet" (paternal Surya-11). Although he did not participate in the technical computer development of the modern internet, Gore was an early political champion of creating (Surya create) the national signal-exchange infrastructure that would connect homes, schools, and businesses to a central (Surya) information hub. His dream (Meena) of freely accessible commercial, social, financial, and scholarly information became a reality (11 swabhava of Shani, material reality).

Also persistently determined Azlesa Kuja-yuti-Shani in bhava-3 communications = does not release its commercial, transactional, messaging objective.

Chandra-8 sudden, unexpected changes

In Jun-2010, the Gores officially ended their 40-year marriage, beginning a period of public separation, when gochara Rahu crossed Al Gore's Guru-yuti-Chandra-Mula-8 complex * Rahu-Chandra period * Chandra rules 3-announcements * gochara Rahu-Dhanushya via bhava-8 identity change

  • Guru in bhava-8 * much secrecy, many confidences, numerous transformations, abundant initiation

  • Zukra-Vanika * swakshetra * appreciation of negotiation, pleasures of harmonious arrangements, aesthetic of equity, fair deal
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; enjoys athletic, vigorous physical equity, appreciation of new birth * identified with alliances, partnership, bargains

Sweets-seeking Zukra-1 in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing practices also)

Zukra-1 identified with partnership, cooperation, joint assets

  • VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore * Guru-yuti-Chandra * although their narratives did not always match the public agreement, the marriage between Al Gore and VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore lasted for 40 years and was perceived as a "two person career" based on teamwork and intra-spousal support. Zukra-1-Malavaya Yoga.

  • Shani in Bhava-3 * must message, communicate, explain; cautious, conventional cohort; chronic mental depression
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, physical discipline, constrained movement

Karmesha Shani occupies 3, suggesting that career is ultimately less oriented to executive decision-making (10) and more oriented to conversations, management, meetings, announcements, publications such as books and cinema.

During the notoriously catalytic Rahu-Shani period, the exceptionally contentious and close-cut USA presidential election resulted in a tragic loss for Gore via a 0.009% margin. The governor of the decision state Florida was USA-Gov-FL 1953- Jeb Bush the brother of Gore's opponent, POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush.

Feminine Nativities


  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96

BPL commentary:

For Hasta nativities, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra considerably affects the outcome.

Mother-figures, protectors, guardians, gardeners, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, and providers of nourishment may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the constellation of Corvus.

"A rather good natured, lazy character with a tendency to bursts of effort.

If work becomes necessary to her comfort,

  • she will tackle any hard task cheerfully

  • and with zest in order to get it done.

But she prefers to be lazy whenever she can.

She is usually buxom in appearance with a rather fat stomach and ample bosom.

A jolly disposition, seldom angry,

  • and quick to forgive any slight or injury or wrong done to her.

She is apt to suffer from chronic rheumatism and piles

and should be careful in her diet;

  • she should never over-eat."

Typical of many born with Surya-12, Tipper's father was largely invisible to her. He left the family during her early childhood and was a shadow figure (12) in her life.

  • Chandra-Kumbha * comforted by rhythmic pulsing network linkage

Mary Elizabeth Aitcheson (nicknamed Tipper) was her only child. Mom worked as an accountant, volunteered for Red Cross charities, and raised Tipper as a single mother while coping with her own health issues.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

As the adult political partner of VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore, Tipper Gore adopted the social policy cause of Mental Health .

VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore 's social relationships with a cohort of "Washington Wives" (Zukra-Mithunaya-Mriga) started out well but eventually became a problem. Mrs. Gore initiated a vigorous Congressional inquiry into "immoral music" (Mangala-Kanya) which scapegoated modern musicians for a perceived moral decay amongst American youth. The ridicule brought by Mrs. Gore's actions is considered to have significantly damaged Mr. Gore's political profile.

During Shani-Shani swabhukti (Shani rules 5-6; Shani rules 1-12 from Chandra) Mrs. Gore suffered a period of outspoken (2 speech) political narrative that sought to place blame for the dissolution (Ketu) of traditional values (2) upon invisible yet insidious, demonic features of modern rock music (2). Her Ketu-2-Thula suggests foggy, unclear narratives and unbalanced speech. Mr. Gore's 7th-from-Chandra receives drishti of Mula-Chandra + Mula-Guru, suggesting reckless speech of the lifemate.
