Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary:

high forehead. Most Punavasu nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers.

For Punarvasu natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guidance from the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux.

  • 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,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty."

Young Samuel Hahnemann worked throughout his life as a written language translator of scientific and medical textbooks, using a variety of classical, ancient, and romance literary languages along with his native German. Although a qualified physician, he could not earn enough with a conventional medical practice to support his 11 children. Therefore he mainly did text translation and ongoing chemical experiments.

As his own medicinary research progressed, Hahnemann published numerous assiduously detailed summaries and scientific observations. Unlike most German authors of the period, who wrote in belabored prose, Hahnemann's writing style is clear albeit a bit poetic. Most of his writings are still used as textbooks in modern homeopathic medical schools and a few of his translations of classical texts into German are still valued too.

Rahu-4 receives drishti of Surya-Chandra-Ketu + lagnesha-bandesha Budha drishti + Mangala drishti

  • Samuel was a great student who became a medical textbook translator. Although he was interested in a wide variety of topics, he certainly received a strong education ending with a medical diploma.

Rahu-4 the house-disrupter accepts incoming drishti of Mangala

Hahnemann and his large family shifted house many times during his adulthood. Although never moving far from the River Elbe in Saxony, nevertheless there were so many house shifts that it attracted attention.

After the death of his first wife, he moved to Paris and when he turned 80 years old, he remarried a Frenchwoman 40 years his junior. Typical of Rahu-4 that flourishes in exotic home environments, Hahnemann was not the least concerned with the scandal that he caused by doing so. According to observers, he seemed to enjoy it.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Meena * incomplete clairsentience, empty dreams, dissolute guidance
  • Ketu in classroom-10 * disregards rank-and-position * no barriers in class-pyramid, absentee officials, vacuous leadership roles, irrelevance of the government
  • Surya-yuti-Ketu * surrendered centrality, empty genius, apathetic intelligence
  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu * surrendered sensitivity, empty feelings, apathetic parenting

a highly complex research personality, apparently receiving significant direction from spirit guides (Meena) was able to bring modern medicine to a completely new level of theory, practice, and pharmaceutical inventory. Unimpeded access to otherworldly guidance benefiting from no barriers Ketu.

\On the other hand, the public viewed him as eccentric in the extreme, and the medical system he devised is denounced as "quackery" by those who lack the sensitivity to understand it.

As the 70-something husband of a 20-something, he also may have received guidance on youthful vitalities (Budha-yuti-Ketu, Budha lagnesha).
