  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81.

BPL commentary: For Arudra natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

"Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."

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


Surya * pitrikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

4th-from-Chandra contains pitrikaraka Surya. Gore grew up in the Washington DC hotel suite which his family occupied during the legislative term while his father served in Congress. As a boy he was widely recognized due to his father's high-profile career.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

The Gores officially ended their 40-year marriage, beginning a period of public separation, when gochara Rahu crossed Al Gore's Guru+Chandra-7 during his Rahu-Mangala chidradasha.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

yuti Chandra-Dhanuzya * comforted by rhythmic catechesis of belief

Gore's strong karmapathi Guru occupies 10th-from-10th yuvati bhava yuti his Alaxmi Mula Chandra. His governance career would seem to have been influenced most strongly not by his birth family but rather by his wife VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore and also likely by his mother (Chandra-7).

While his karmasthana-10 is strengthened by Surya in bhava-10 * dig-bala, Gore nevertheless lacks the personality-shaping graha in-lagna typical of POTUS (most often Shani). Ultimately his nativity supports significant leadership enacted in bargaining and deal-making (the primary legislative modalities of the House of Representatives and the Senate, where he served successfully for decades). Yet the nativity does not show the most elite governance leadership positions. Rather, Surya ruling 3 creates a career that is more oriented to conversations, management, meetings, announcements, publications such as books and cinema.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

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

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


During Rahu-Shani period, the exceptionally contentious and close-cut USA presidential election resulted in a 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.

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

Mr. Gore's net worth in 2012 was estimated at approximately USD_100 million

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka



VPOTUS-pair * served 1976-2000 * Mrs. Tipper Gore * Mary Elizabeth "Tipper "Aitcheson Gore

Feminine Nativities


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

BPL commentary: For Hasta nativities, the condition of Chandra considerably affects the outcome . The mother is especially influential.

"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."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka

Surya-Simha * mulatrikona 1-10 deg * self-confidence in the cloistered realms of genius, charisma, artistic performance

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

As always for Chandra-Kumbha, Professor Somana rules 6th-from-Chandra generating a lifelong challenge to maintain balanced emotional health.

Tipper Gore's mother Margaret Odom Aitcheson was widowed (husband-1 was killed in action in WW-2) . Mrs. Odom then married Tipper's father and later divorced him. 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.

As the adult political partner of VPOTUS Climate Change 1948- Al Gore, Tipper Gore adopted the social policy cause of Mental Health (compare to Rosalynn Carter). She cited her own frequent personal experiences of emotional depression as an intimate alignment with this cause, and cited even more influentially her mother's struggles with recurrent severe emotional depression.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

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.
