Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary:

For natives of Purvaphalguni * Yoni, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Zosma

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. They are happiest when playing music, dancing, or performing a choreographed sport for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they enjoy political campaigns, gambling and games, financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political agreement, and the drama of romantic relationships.

Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

USA_JFKJr_photo.jpgQUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Marriage 7th-from-Chandra-7

When Chandra occupies bhava-7 the husband-figure is often seeking a caretaker to replace a missing mother. The primary relationship is with the mother. Young JFK married on 21-Sep-1996 in his 36th year. He waited until after the death of his caretaker-figures, the influential paternal grandmother (1995) and his doting but publicity-sensitive mother (1994) to make his own choice of a life-partner.

His mother (Chandra) and paternal grandmother (4th-from-Surya = Chandra-7) are both represented in his 7th bhava of advisers. They would have likely encouraged him to make a reputable choice of life-partner.

Quotations from BPHS Ch. 1-12; 1-17; 1-19

  • "Chandra is capable of causing an early end, if He is with a malefic in Yuvati, Randhra, or Tanu bhava, and unrelated to a benefic."~~ 1-12
  • "Malefics occupying Tanu and Yuvati Bhava while Chandra is with a malefic, with no relief from a benefic will also cause premature death." ~~ 1-17
  • "Chandra in Tanu, Randhra, Vyaya or Yuvati bhava and hemmed in between malefics will confer premature death." ~~ 1-19

According to Sri Sarajit Poddar," The Moon in Saturnine signs in betwixt malefics " signifies fleshdeath via "Hanging, Fire or fall."

Kumbha-Chandra-7 hemmed in between Ketu (above) and Shani (below).

Cause of fleshdeath may be considered a fall, since his airplane plunged into the sea, and presumed cause of death was not drowning but rather the blunt-force trauma of the crash.

Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra as well as Rahu's ruler Surya in swamsha with the nichha-Zukra suggests death through the agency of the wife or in company with women.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of conversation; push toward explanatory instruction

Guru vidyapathi-5 + randhresha-8

Guru-5 drama rules 8-conditions of fleshdeath

Only a few months before his 39th birthday, JFK-Jr 's tragic ocean drowning on 16-July-1999 drew the attention of the television-viewing world. In an unprecedented and dramatic use of government resources to aid the celebrity-political Kennedy family, US-Navy search-and-rescue teams were deployed to search for the sunken plane and its deceased passengers: JFK-Jr, his young wife Carolyn Bessette, and his sister-in-law Lauren Bessette.

Zukra karma pathi = public life

ALSO Zukra = yogakaraka vidyapathi-5 + karmesha-10 from Kumbha-Chandra

bhratrupathi-3 + karmesha-10In the nativity of a husband-figure, , kalatrakaraka Zukra signifies the being who assumes the role of the wife-figure.

The daityaguru as bhratrupathi-3 + karmesha-10 is a capable public agent (10) and commercial agent with sibling-cohort affinity (3) .

Zukra-Dhanuzya Purvashadha a nakshatra of Zukra provides a strong dose of artistic and musical taste.

Zukra enjoys romantic drama in bhava-5.

Zukra-yuti-Guru * Zukra-yuti-Shani adds the portfolio of 5, 6, 7, 8 to Zukra's rulership 3-10.

Zukra nichha in swamsha with Surya-Rahu. The wife was said to have disliked the intense publicity that accompanied her celebrity marriage (Rahu) and disagreement ensued.

From emotional basis of Kumbha-Chandra lagna, Yogakaraka Zukra rules 4-9 suggesting homelife (4) and doctrine (9). The young couple shared a New York area (4) and Roman Catholic (9) upbringing.

As karmapathi, Zukra suggests that the wife may serve as an agent of the public reputation and facilitator of social visibility. The choice of wife would have been very important for a prominent public figure such as young JFK.

Environment of recognizing the spousal mate

According to friends, the couple first met in the office of his maternal aunt who was a senior publicist . His wife-to-be was working as a junior publicist (Zukra bhratrupathi-3 publications) for a prestigious fashion design group (Zukra-5 in nakshatra of Zukra purvazadha fashion)

The relationship was cemented at a party given by JFK Jr's best friend, his maternal cousin Anthony. "Anthony's party" is indicated as the place of awareness of the mutual interest in marriage via these steps:

  1. counting from matikaraka Chandra, step three bhava to Mesha = mother's younger sister (JFK's aunt Lee Radziwill).

  2. The younger sister's eldest son = from Mesha count 5. Arrive as Rahu-Simha * radical lagna. (Among his other credentials, Anthony was a royal prince * Simha).

  3. From Rahu lagna (= JFK's cousin Anthony) count five again to indicate an entertainment "party" (5) especially one with a high prestige factor (5) and celebrity guests (5).

  4. Chandra + 3 + 5 + 5 arrives at putra bhava containing Zukra + Shani + Guru. It is a complex environment (three graha, six bhava-pathi, 11th-from-Chandra social networks) with many people and many different pressures. That's where young JFK met his soon-to-be-wife Carolyn Bessette (Zukra).

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Dhanuzya * old doctrines, pressured beliefs, old patronage, pressured hips-sacroiliac, imposed catechism, must teach with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-5 * must create drama with scarce confidence; cautious of politics, conventional intelligence; heavy weight of
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * resistance against expansion, doctrinal discipline, constrained growth
  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity, contractual discipline, constrained harmony

rogesha-6 + yuvatipathi-7

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

  • Rahu in bhava-1 * privilege via glamorous, mesmerizing, exotic, or unusual physical appearance, competitive movement, championship;; seeks social mobility via fascinating, energized physical body-form. Opportunistic, ambitious conditions of birth. Cult of personality.
  • Rahu-Singha * nichha * mask of radiant dramatic celebrity

Desire to be recognized (Rahu) as a Great Personality

Rahu in bhava-1 John F. Kennedy Jr. became a celebrity at age one, at onset of his Rahu Mahadasha in 1961.Dramatic, magnetically charismatic, attention-and-elevation craving Rahu-Singha lagna. Rahu also in the swamsha yuti lagnesha Surya and the nichha-Zukra indicating the challenging quality of his interpersonal relationships.

Rahu-1 social attribute package supported by lagnesha Vrischika-Surya-4 = extraordinary, uncoiling of passionate energies, and a degree of personal, physical charisma (Simha) leading toward a personality cult

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Kumbha * incomplete economy, empty profits, dissolute systems
  • Ketu in classroom-7 * absentee spouse, disregards contractual loyalties, dissolves the alliances, irrelevance of terms of partnership
  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu * surrendered sensitivity, empty feelings, apathetic parenting

Ambivalence (Ketu) toward trusts, deals, agreements, matches, equity, justice, advocacy, attorneys, partners, alliances, contracts, weakened mutual interest with Others

Gochara Graha at fleshdeath event

Gochara Kuja opposed Kuja's enemy gochara Shani.

yuvatipathi-7 Shani and randhresha-8 Guru simultaneously gochara in Mesha. Mesha = randhresha-8 navamsha, indicating (although not proving) the simultaneous death of his wife. Because yuvatipathi-7 and randhresha-8 are yuti in radix and both are uttama in navamsha, the joint-death significators gain strength.

randhresha-8 shows not timing of death but rather *circumstances* of death. Radix Guru reveals the circumstances of death (in bhava-5 see yuvatipathi-7 wife, Zukra = another female, Guru-Dhanuzya shows thigh muscles contracting + rogesha-6 Shani = some illness and perhaps some conflict). Gochara Guru was in Mesha = internal combustion engines and heat generated by machinery.

  • Samchara Kuja crossing bhuktipathi Budha-Thula. accidental death in a vehicle crash. Kuja bandesha-4 = vehicles, violent attacks.

  • Samchara bandesha-4 Kuja vehicles transits second navamsha Thula. Another suggestive but per se inconclusive marker for death of wife. Also suggesting that a sudden or aggressive action of partner, perhaps in an argument, may have been the incipient cause of the pilot-error accident.

  • Bhukti pati Budha maraka rules-2 along with lagnesha Sun transiting Karkata via vyaya bhava, suggest the extended dream state of a drowning death in the ocean

Material cause of Earthbody-Exit was declared "pilot error". JFK-Jr was piloting his own small airplane, handicapped by a damaged ankle. Shani rules 6 marital conflict, + Shani rules 7 Kumbha ankles.
