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, ideologues, theorists, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Distinctive features of the nativity


Rabindranath Tagore sitting with Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein in 1934

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Surya + Zukra-yuti-Budha = charismatic (Surya) + handsome, financially privileged, and artistic (Zukra) + literary (Budha)

Surya-uttama ruler of 4th-from-4th yuti bandhesha-4 Zukra. This combination aids commitment to the marriage contract even when the individual willpower is exceptionally bright.

Surya mahadasha produced a furious passion for education, celebration of the ethnic roots and cultures, and engagement with Arya nobility of spirit.

Uttama-Surya provides exceptionally vibrant "roots" attachment to the land and its ethnic settlers, albeit one's role is aristocratic and not emotionally sympathetic so much as gloriously regal.

Chandra * matrikaraka

  • Chandra in classroom-2 * comfort in collections, voice, speech, history, stories, storage, lineage knowledge
  • Chandra-Meena * comforted by rhythmic ancestral guidance
  • Chandra in Revatika-Pashu * comforted by wayfaring rhythms * protector of poetic interpretations, wise familiar lyrics, soothing dreamlike songs, ancient folk narratives * Pushana * The Pied Piper
  • Guru-6 parivartamsha Chandra-2


7th from Chandra-2 suggests that the spouse is a covered, veiled, concealed, or camouflaged person.

Zukra + Chandra-yuti-Budha suggests 3 life-mates= Kadambari Devi, Mrinalini Devi, and Victoria Ocampo (Vijaya)

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Mangala in bhava-5 Mithunya* parivartamsha Budha-Meza-3

Budha explanation, description, instruction * Budha rules radical lagna AND the Mithunaya swamsha

Swakshetra Budha in swamsha signifies the polymath, an international literati, commercial businessman, conversationalist and translator.

Budha-swamsha also suggests that Tagore's wife was very young (age ten) at time of their ritual marriage and also that she was twelve years his junior = more consistent with youthful Kumara in swamsha. His first husbandly decision was to arrange to have her learn to read and write (Mithunaya). Kanya in 7th-from-Chandra also indicates a very young maiden and conditions of servitude for the spouse.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

3rd from Budha Mentality

Despite the literary auspice of the parivartamsha yoga between Budha-3 and Kuja-5, Mangala-yuti-Ketu does occupy the hyper-mental 3rd from Budha and thus some mental agitation leading to a nervous depression could be predicted during Budha periods and Mangala periods.

the emotionally motivated communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra = Vrishabha-4 ruled by combust Zukra, who joins into the dynamic but impatient bhava-3 Mesha. Indicating reduced impulse control and a sometimes unstable home, paired with world-wandering.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru rules 10th navamsha Meena higher teachings.

Guru-Karkata -6 * uttama parivartamsha Chandra-Revati-2

Many emotionally-deep conflicts including a primary non-contractual (6) relationship within the family. Emotional experience is enriched and expanded; treasuries of the family (2) via the servitude of others (6) indicated as his exceptionally wealthy family obtained their hoard from landholding and the lands worked by tenant farmers.

Chandra-Revati songs and songwriting, familiar-face, folk rhythms


For the Kumbha radical lagna, Brishaspati is a generator of significant financial well-being. Guru-Karkata * uttama * parivartamsha Chandra-Meena-2 indicates the distinctively wealthy conditions of his family of origin, increased by Tagore's own Rahu-11 ruled by Guru.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra rules Arudha Lagna bhava-9 philosophy, globalist worldview

Yogakaraka Zukra-3

Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha = combust. Most of Zukra's independent power to harmonize and accommodate the interests of writing has been burned away by the noble glamorous, transformative, self-referential uttama-Surya-3. Zukra-3 connotes a preference for sisterly relationships.

Writing and Publishing

Born into Budha-Zukra period. Ruler of 3 in 3rd-from-3rd while strong graha occupy 3 and 5 is a pattern found in the best writers. Observe the writer's powerhouse: 3-Budha-Mesha-3 with Mangala-Mithunaya-5 in 3rd-from-3 * creating a Kahala (announcements) parivartamsha yoga between ruler of 3 in 5 and ruler of 5 in 3.

Tagore-Thakur wrote countless numbers of songs beloved by Bangla denizens, poems read and studied worldwide, and was certainly the most celebrated literary figure in India during his lifetime and beyond.

Zukra + uttama-Surya-yuti-Budha--3 * Rulers of 7, 9, 4, 5, and 8 occupy communicative bhava-3

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani rules Kumbha

Shani rules Karakamsha = radical lagnesha Kumbha, while Kumbha receives a fierce drishti of ruler Shanicarya. A singularly disciplined personality, undeterred by center-stage political glamour (Shani-Simha resists political royal or celebrity entitlements).

lagnesha Shani, marriage

Shani-Simha * Shani-7* dig-bala ruled by Surya in bhava-3 suggests loyalty in marriage while the spouse lives, and ruler of 7 in 9th-from-7th shows the fortunate, confident, sibling-like nature of the marriage.

However Shani as vyayapathi-12 suggests some private disagreement.

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

Guru rules Rahu-11

Ambitious Rahu's ruler the atmakaraka Guru-Karkata -6 * uttama, for all of Guru's positive expansive auspice, occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Dhanushya-Rahu-11. As a distinguished Bangla poet and patron of many needy local villages, as well as a global missionary of liberal education, Thakur-Tagore had to manage an unbalanced group of desires, abilities, and potentials.

Rahu Mahadasha

Rahu-11 is a superb location. Rahu casts a powerful graha drishti into 3-5-7, amplifying nine bhava-pathi:

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
