Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman
For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.
Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Denebola.
Uttara-phalguni gentlemen are famously hot-headed. Pada-1 Simha is noted for its confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of Surya, the masculine Falgun favors dramatic displays of royalty, celebrity, and entitlement.
Pada 2-3-4 in Kanya = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private location.
Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.
Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83
"A proud and arrogant disposition,
Uttara natives are extremely intelligent
but because of their inordinate pride,
and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity |
From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, sober serious structured hierarchical Shani rules
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Surya-yuti-Rahu * amplified ambition, magnified confidence, exotic creativity, tricky drama, opportunistic father, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of political genius
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Accounts of the bitterness of Wesley's failed marriage were marked by vicious criticism toward his wife, chronic infidelities, and tales of his extraordinary craving for public attention. This scenario could suggest that John Wesley may have suffered from clinical Narcissism.
To begin the long list of marital stressors, yuvatipathi Guru occupies randhrasthana-8 + nichha-Shani. Then, Mangala bhratrupathi-3 + randhresha-8 provides considerable challenge for the Kanya nativity. Marriage equity is also compromised by nichha-Mangala yuti Zukra.
The "disregard for consequences" Mula-Chandra-yuti-Ketu-4 tendd to disrupt the home and foundational schooling. His childhood home-rectory shifted often, he was farmed out to neighbors for two years, and his childhood home was burnt twice to the ground. He wandered peripatetically as a churchless preacher, forming and abandoning relationships en route, coming home unannounced and often met with spousal hostility.
Nevertheless Wesley's nativity features Harsha Yoga provided by the Viparita Raja Yoga of rogesha-6 nichha-Shani in 8. His spiritual reputation as a life-transforming evangelical itinerant preacher did not suffer from the potential ignominy of his marital problems. In fact many devoted Methodists for the subsequent two centuries had no idea about his wife's detailed complaints of Wesley's infidelities, financial irresponsibility, and verbal violence toward her, as her diaries were suppressed.

all that is true, all that is noble,
all that is just and pure,
all that is loveable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and admirable -
fill all your thoughts with these things."
