Philosophy and Science


a founder of the science of bacteriology

  • revolutionized academic chemistry and biology
  • using his beloved microscope and a rigorous logic of inference, discovered the existence of mirror-image organic molecules
  • via his work on fermentation, founded the new science of microbiology
  • discovered anaerobic bacteria
  • confirmed and developed the existing germ theory of disease.
  • the hearing and sterilizing process now called pasteurization remains a vitally important method of controlling disease

Masculine Nativities

Hasta * Savitra

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.

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

"...clever, witty, and entertaining.

They like social contacts

  • and are particularly fond of the company of the opposite sex.

When in trouble, go to a Hasta person;

but do not try to pull the wool over their eyes,

  • as they are extremely clever

  • and will see through any deceit

they are very likable and are good company,

  • but never very attractive physically ."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Pasteur enjoyed a powerful yet very challenging double parivartamsha yoga. His uttama-Kuja-yuti-Rahu was involved in a parivartamsha between Shani-8-nichha ++ Kuja-5-uttama.

Pasteur's most extraordinary scientific discoveries were accomplished during Mangala periods.

However his Shani-nichha-8 periods were also thus amplified by the strength of uttama-Kuja-Rahu, and Shani periods tended to be brutally difficult, producing numerous events of cerebral hemorrhage, catastrophic results to his family, and secret misdoings.

His other remarkable exchange * Zukra-4 parivartamsha Guru-9 * indicates his success in educational matters, including a series of well-funded (two sukhagraha) teaching jobs that provided the salary, scientific equipment, and labor for his decades-long experimentations, culminating in the financial endowments of the academic (4-9) Pasteur Institute.

Surya * pitrikaraka


Pasteur's father was a leather tanner, who prepared animal skins to be made into leather. He worked in earthy farm settings (4).

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-10 * comfort in order, protocol, rank, systems, law, recognition, respect
  • Chandra-Mithunaya * comforted by rhythmic signal messaging
  • Chandra in Arudra * comforted by exciting signals * protectors of stormy wildness, undulating entrancement, sensitive swaying seduction


MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

mutual drishti between nichha-Shani with uttama-Mangala-Rahu suggests a fierce determination and toughness of ambition to overcome all obstacles

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Dhanuzya * articulation of beliefs
  • Budha in bhava-4 * narrative of mother, homeland, roots, routine
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant confidence, message of willpower and charisma
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * articulation of equity in agreements, message of justice and fairly bargained contracts; songwriting

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Harsha Yoga

  • Shani-Meza * nichha * old feuds, pressured invasions, old competitions, must conquer with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * must transform the old order, regenerate while maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; chronic trauma patterns
  • Shani-8-nichha parivartamsha Kuja-5-uttama

mutual drishti between nichha-Shani-8 with uttama-Mangala-Rahu-5 suggests a fierce determination of ambition combined with a terrible secret (the experiement notebooks)

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

  • Rahu-Makara * mask of strict hierarchical order
  • Rahu in bhava-5 * glamorous or unusual children; out-of-bounds creativity and romance; charismatic center-of-attention ; seeks center-stage privilege
  • uttama-Kuja-yuti-Rahu * * amplified competition, tricky innovation

Vimshottari Shani-Rahu periods and Rahu-Shani periods have the potential for exhilaration and devastation.

  • Pasteur's Shani-Rahu sequence (age 42-45) started with the 1865 decease of lifelong-supporter, followed by 1866 death of two of Pasteur's daughters from typhoid, followed by his own1868 (age 45) cerebral hemorrhage (stroke) paralyzing his left arm and left leg. Pasteur did recover partially from the paralysis due to uttama-Kuja-yuti-Rahu ++ Shani-8-nichha parivartamsha Kuja-5-uttama ++ his powerful Shani-provided Harsha Yoga. However, he had more brain-bleeding (Shani-nichha) later and eventually the final stroke would be fatal (age 71)

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu in classroom-11 * disregards community * no barriers in community, absent from network, vacuous friendships
  • Ketu-Karkata * incomplete security, empty shelter, dissolute caretaking
