Henry David Thoreau

fleshbirth 12-July-1817 * fleshdeath 06-May-1862 (age 44)

"He chose to be rich by making his wants few, and supplying them himself. In his travels, he used the railroad only to get over so much country as was unimportant to the present purpose, walking hundreds of miles, avoiding taverns, buying a lodging in farmers' and fishermen's houses, as cheaper, and more agreeable to him, and because there he could better find the men and the information he wanted.

There was somewhat military in his nature not to be subdued, always manly and able, but rarely tender, as if he did not feel himself except in opposition. He wanted a fallacy to expose, a blunder to pillory, I may say required a little sense of victory, a roll of the drum, to call his powers into full exercise."

~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson's eulogy"Thoreau" in The Atlantic Monthly (August 1862)

BPL commentary: For Azvini nativities, the condition of Ketu considerably affects the outcome

"... a happy carefree disposition,

  • very intelligent,

  • in fact a rather above average person in this respect.

He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that

  • he will seldom have to worry about money matters.

In spite of his ability to achieve success,

  • he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements."
