Punarvasu * Aditya * Purnavasi * Vutvrta * Jamitra
For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the paradigm of Jamitra, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.
High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.
Instructing, Explaining, Describing
Mithunaya pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.
Karkata-pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.
Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing (due to Brihaspati rules 6).
Themes of restoration of lost knowledge, gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81
"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment , expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
7th-from-Chandra-9 = bhava-3 management, conversation
Although few of Tolkien's buddies had nice things to say about Edith, indeed Tolkien himself praised and supported her without exception. Generally his friends complained that she was not intellectual, socially petty, and made them unwelcome in his home.
However, these qualities may have been the secret to Tolkien's deep appreciation of his wife. Bhava-3 is associated with business behaviors such as management, clerical process, and paperwork. Edith administered his home office where much of his off-duty writing and drawing occurred. She answered his fanmail. By keeping his friends in the pub rather than in his home parlor, she made it possible for him to write (3).

Tolkien's philological (2) fabrication of languages songs, epic tales and genetic lineages which generated an extraordinary body of knowledge about a mythical history (2). Much of his need to philosophize the Germanic folk roots, as he himself told the tale of his creativity, was impressed upon him during the horrendous death scenes (2) of trench barbarities during World-War-1. Even before the onset of the horrors of Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler, Tolkien began to sense that the higher spirit which guided the Germanic peoples through their time in history (Zeitgeist) was endangered and needed both promotion (Guru) and protection (Chandra).

1971 BBC Interview:
"Q: Did you intend in Lord of the Rings that certain races should embody certain principles: the elves wisdom, the dwarves craftsmanship, men husbandry and battle and so forth?
T: I didn't intend it but when you've got these people on your hands you've got to make them different haven't you. Well of course as we all know ultimately we've only got humanity to work with, it's only clay we've got.
We should all - or at least a large part of the human race - would like to have greater power of mind, greater power of art by which I mean that the gap between the conception and the power of execution should be shortened, and we should like a longer if not indefinite time in which to go on knowing more and making more.
Therefore the Elves are immortal in a sense. I had to use immortal, I didn't mean that they were eternally immortal, merely that they are very longeval and their longevity probably lasts as long as the inhabitability of the Earth.
The dwarves of course are quite obviously - wouldn't you say that in many ways they remind you of the Jews? Their words are Semitic obviously, constructed to be Semitic. Hobbits are just rustic English people, made small in size because it reflects (in general) the small reach of their imagination - not the small reach of their courage or latent power.
Q: This seems to be one of the great strengths of the book, this enormous conglomeration of names - one doesn't get lost, at least after the second reading.
T: I'm very glad you told me that because I took a great deal of trouble. Also it gives me great pleasure, a good name. I always in writing start with a name. Give me a name and it produces a story, not the other way about normally."
