BPL commentary

For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

Mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive and intrusive leadership and institutional governance.

The Listener * Shaman

Shravishta gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Sravana are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.

As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law. In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.

Shravana must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law. While public dignity remains important, Sravana fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow (Chandra) of the ethnicity or the nation. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.

Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.

"an excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,

  • particularly to those less fortunate than himself.

This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life

  • without injuring anyone else to do so.

He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.

  • The extent of his activities in this direction,

  • will of course depend on his station in life.

Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.

He will also be very religious

  • and will participate in church activities

  • if his environment permits."


Rowan Williams in 2005 as Archbishop of Canterbury (Cair Ceint, Cant-ware-burh = Kent-men-stronghold)

Biographical Details matched to the Vimshottari Dasha bhukti

Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams * served as a prominent exponent of social justice and inclusion for historically marginalized persons (6). He championed the cause of women being authorized to serve as Anglican bishops (Guru). (He lost). Rogapathi Guru-5 in 12th-from-6th reduces harm to him personally, but also weakens the empowerment to advocate for the exploited classes

Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams proposed numerous rebirth, rejuvenation, and modernization enhancement to the official doctrine of the Anglican Church. While he was unable to effect these changes personally (due to his Shani-2 drishti to 8 which internally resists change) nevertheless he created an iconic personality symbolizing the changes, and in that way facilitated the first phase of the change through carefully legal (Makara) examination of the precedents and policies which structure the corporate hierarchy of the Church

Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams was considered by those whom he upset to be a force of disruptive innovation and sudden, unexpected change. For the Anglican Church hierarchy and its worshippers, he served as a voice of intelligence, creativity, and nobility of spirit (Surya) which came to loggerheads with the stony, Shani-ruled megastructure of the established Church. His own Shani-2 prevented a revolutionary schism within the faith communion, which was provoked by his liberal progressive Guru-Kumbha-8 in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra initiating significant policy changes. His departure from executive roles was welcomed as a sign of "return to normal" by the conservative faithful.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-5 = bhava-11 community activism, social progressive linkage

SInce 1981, Williams has been married to the theologian and liturgical writer Jane Paul. They have two children.

Via the Kuja-ruled marriage partnership (11) Williams who is a basically conservative Zravana personality has been thrust (Kuja) into the vanguard of transformative (Vrischika) liberal progressive social participation networks (11).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation * proactive medication * thrust toward service * push toward unfairness * champion of litigious accusation, indictments,
  • Mangala in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * drive toward doctrine, champion of paradigmatic belief, pursuit of patronage, dynamic preaching, energized philosophical conquests, dominating father-figures. Often Kuja-9 = challenges to the father's lifestyle.
  • Kuja-yuti-Ketu * energized pilgrimage, dynamic wandering, masculine force joins apathetic surrender, potential for aggressive annihilation of initiations

Critical Kanya-Mangala + nebulous Ketu occupy the scholarly, creative 5th-from-Chandra suggesting a willingness (5 willpower) and ability (Kuja action) to tackle unclear (Ketu) and controversial, accusatory arguments (Mangala-Kanya)

Kuja-yuti-Ketu -9 theology = ocupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Mangala in bhava-9 * dhana-yoga * Vriddhipathi-11 in 11th-from-11th * earnings from vigor and competition

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Vrishabha * financial communications, articulation of tonal, stored, collected assets, vigorous descriptive evaluations, historic messages about worth and value * signaling harmonious sound frequencies
  • Budha in bhava-5 * narrative of drama, politics, creativity * discusses children, entitlement, entertainment, describer of divine intelligence, explainer of romance, delivers instructions for politics, poetry, creative literature, games, love, fame, human delights , talks about idealism, royalty, uniqueness, artistic performance, radiant confidence, celebration, glitter and glamour, splendor

  • Budha-yuti-Chandra * explainer of feelings * affinity for caretaking, parental roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction  *  articulation of comfortable routines, message of sensitivity and emotional flow, intuitively talkative mother

Budha-5 celebrity rules 9-ecclesiastics

Bantering Budha rules Mithunaya swamsha

Blustering Budha rules Karakamsha = bhava-9 containing Mangala-yuti-Ketu. Williams is acknowledged as a gifted but not easily understood Writer on often abstruse theological, theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual topics (Ketu) .

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Kumbha * much networking, many group associations, scientific beliefs, doctrine of economic linkage, expands the scope of social participation, multiple communities and friendships
  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard, many songs, many stories, history, storage, several genetic lineages, much many accumulated goods, numerous languages, many voices, many valuations, extensive accounts and assets, family identity = growth, belief, expansion of the lineage

Guru = kharesha

Brihaspati rules Meena 10th navamsha

Benevolent Brihaspati receives a conservative, restraining, fearful drishti from Shani-Simha-8.

Generous Guiding Guru occupies the career-defining, emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-Meza * appreciation of competitive movement, likes innovation, attracted to champions, pleasures of conquest, athletic sensuality, enjoys direct action, aristocratic arrangements
  • Zukra-4 * digbala * pleasure of home-based routines; enjoys domestic equity, feminine-figures are prominent in the home environment, appreciation of owned properties

Zukra-4 occupies the contemplative, imaginative, prayerful 12th-from-Chandra

Kalatrakaraka Zukra representing the Value of Women rules 6th-from-Chandra * emotional conflict from and about women, sexual relationships, finance, and values traditions.

Williams faced surprisingly contentious accusations (6) and bitter criticism (6) for supporting committed same-sex unions within the Church.

Archbishop of Canterbury 1950- Rowan Williams = championed the cause of ordained women priests serving as Anglican bishops, but due to virulent criticism (6) of this initiative, the Anglican Church lost access to much-needed feminine leadership.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Simbha (challenging placement) * heavy old entitlements * the weight of old royal drama * obliged to conform to center-stage flamboyant divas * vital energy compression stress zone = heart-spine * must accept pragmatic social restrictions upon creative self-expression * strictly imposed rules governing political affairs * must apply socially required restrictions upon genius, games, drama, children, romance * must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian entertainments * must work with slow, elderly political game-players * must continue to conduct lawful entitlement ceremonies despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious transformations. One must slowly, inexorably change the old order. One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner. In-laws contribute little. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as surgeon, tantriki, concealer, mask-maker, emergency regulator.

Sober Serious Structural Shani = yogakaraka-graha rules 9+10 from the Chandra lagna

Shani-Simha-8 indicating a fear of politics ++ fear of change occupies the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra suggesting a stable, conventional, scarcity oriented home and government schools

Shani-8 drishti upon 10-career manifested the highly empowered promotion to Archbishop of Canterbury during Shani-Shani swabhukti.

Shanri-8 drishti also into bhava-2 historical values, languages, song ++ bhava-5 politics, creative gamesmanship

Shani-8 = resistance to change

Shani-8 provided enough contact with the established hierarchy to retain his authority. Yet his tenure in the authority topper role was beleaguered by resistance to change (Shani-8) and social fear of nonconformity (Shani-Simha).

His work on social-economic participation within the communion of believers will be judged to have been successful in retrospect albeit necessarily glacially slow (Shani).

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

  • Rahu-Meena * shimmering illusion of immersion * craving for symbolic guidance * mirage of imaginative wisdom * mesmerizing aura of concealing fog * mask of dreamlike Other Worlds * fascinating prayers *extraordinary ancestor guides * fabulous clairsentience * intriguing sleep-states * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of deep trance, private intuition, interior guidance, contemplative-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, photography, journalistic reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging. Craves publication. Desires a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role. Over-reaching in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Exciting, opportunistic engagement with process management, manufacturing, business administration, instructions, information technology. Trespasses cultural boundaries of cohort-conversations and evangelistic proclamations. Ambitious character of the sibling-cousin, collaborative team, or touring ensemble.

Passion for contemplative community

Rahu-Meena contemplation, imagination ** occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Kanya * dissociates from accusatory complaints, incomplete service, empty disagreements, dissolute arguments, not limited by stigmatized status, ignores restriction on imbalance
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * incoherent ideology, disinterested in the credenda; wandering worldview; absentee father-figures * no barriers in doctrine, disregards teachings, vacuous philosophy, irrelevance of the catechesis, ambivalence toward the power of principled conviction. One abandons the usual paradigm of belief, ignores the conventional understandings, delivers incoherent theory.
  • Mangala-yuti-Ketu * surrendered championship, empty actions, disconnected brothers, unsustainable domination, apathetic competition, disability, unfulfilled championship, incomplete birth

Occupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Although theologically (9) Williams has been mainly an academic investigator into problematics due to critical, reportage Kanya-Mangala, may be expected to produce more edgy theological writing after retirement from public office due to dogma-dissolving Ketu in classroom-9
