Dhaniztha * Vasu
For Dhaniztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors,, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.
Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.
Hierarchical Power Climber
Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-oriented and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.
Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.
Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals, and they win. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and dominated by men.
Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.
Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.
Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.
Themes of brotherhood, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87
"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.
It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.
They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity |
Surya randhresha rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra
AC was a complex man. His genius and faults were both writ-large . A major fault observed by his contemporaries was AC's tendency to believe himself infallible * Surya-yuti-Ketu
Dad's craft of hand-weaving was suddenly displaced by industrial automated looms, putting an entire generation of hand-weavers out of work. Surya-yuti-Ketu displacement.
The family was comfortable during Andra's early childhood, then plunged into penury and hunger during his school years. Young child AC and his family then made the difficult transition from their predictable and reliable Scottish village (Chandra) to the bustling and complex and typically impoverished American industrial morass. (Rahu)
Parents * Surya-Chandra economic shocks
Children 6/8 Guru-Chandra ++ 5 receives Drishti of Surya-yuti-Ketu + Mangala
3rd-from-Chandra ruled by Guru-6 illness = a sister died in between Andra and Thomas. Therefore Thomas is represented by Rahu-uttama-5
5th-from-Chandra = Rahu-5 brother Thomas receives drishti of Mangala-Zukra-Surya
Chandra yuvathipathi occupies 1, suggesting the identity of a dealer, broker, negotiator, trader.
A uniquely defining feature of 'AC's life history was his intensely close and often inseparable relationship to his fiercely protective mother Chandra in classroom-1 rules mother AND partnerships.
The most influential and definitive person in Andrew Carnegie's life, according to his peers and observers, was Andrew's mother. She was his parent, his roommate, and his primary partner until her death.
Asserting herself as his only legitimate partner and protector, Momma Carnegie regularly accompanied AC to business meetings, throwing his business associates into a state of social paralysis for fear of offending her. Momma joined AC on summer-long Scottish holidays; and for decades she shared his large New York City hotel suite.
At AC's age 50, with his elderly mothe in decline, AC began a formal courtship with the daughter of a fellow industrialist who was 21 years his junior. Notoriously, the Momma did everything in her powers to prevent the union. Sensing strong opposition, AC's young fiancée was determined to break the alliance. Finally his sole surviving sibling died and within only weeks, Momma died. AC, then 51, arranged a small private marriage ceremony in 1887 Shani-Zukra bhukti
Marriage * 7th from Chandra-1
Chandra in Shravana-1 ruling Karkata-7 suggests a quietly lawful and conventional spouse. The relationship was quietly affectionate rather than passionate. The couple enjoyed a simple, non-opulent lifestyle with very little entertaining. One child was born into the union, 10 years after the wedding.
During the era of crony capitalism a sociable, polite, reputation-alert Chandra in Shravana would have been a valuable placement for deal-making and forming partnerships. In his teenage jobs, young AC was noticed for his well-formed handwriting (Budha yuti uttama-Shani formal structures) ++ his pleasant appearance and charisma (Surya-Zukra.) Most important to his employers were his *listening* (Shravana) capabilities, which allow him to decode incoming telegraph messages in real-time by ear without having to write them.
Kuja rules hyper-competitive Dhaniztha radical lagna
Kuja rules Arudha Lagna Meza-10
Mangala-11 rules 4-property ownership ++ 11-economic participation, earnings, social network
Ketu-yuti-Kuja can be innovative, pioneering, and a champion of industry.
Mangala-11 = band of brothers
Carnegie belonged to a community (11) of investors who controlled most of the industrial assets of late 1800's northeastern USA. He manipulated the various personal relationships between the financially privileged men, breaking promises at will (Guru-6 many broken contracts). He enjoyed dominating this group -- but never so much that he was the only player left (Zukra-Mangala).
Kuja drishti enters 2-5-6
Budha in bhava-10 rules 6 occupies 10 == conflict and violence afflict the public reputation
A century after his decease, AC is remembered equally for his brutal mistreatment of lowly workers and his extraordinary social philanthropy.
During the Budha Mahadasha 1907-1911: AC dispersed his remaining funds of US$125 million into the charitable Carnegie Corporation.
Budha rules 9th-from-Chandra == patronage of schoolteachers.
Budha also rules 6th-from-Chandra = impoverishment of schoolteachers = collapse of equity. The financial problem (6) occurred due to extraordinary actuarial gains in longevity of Americans, especially the long-living group of women teachers.
dissolution of wealth in general compounded by Zukra-yuti-Ketu
From Chandra-Makara-Draco lagna, the believers' voice of abundant, doctrinal, theoretical, philosophical, preaching Professor Guru rules
Guru drishti enters 10-12-2
shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Chandra-1-angle to Guru-6.
Guru in bhava-6 indicates many injustices, many crimes, many exploitations
Despite tremendous treasuries and broad public respect, AC's life and legacy were deeply afflicted by ongoing accusations of exploitation, pollution, hypocrisy and conflict.
AC made his first fortune from opportunities presented by the cruelty and devastation accompanying the USA Civil War.
Guru in bhava-6 expands communications
Guru-Mithunaya rules 12 * bending the facts, fantasy statistics, visionary lies
AC was an inveterate evangelist of the capitalist ideology (Guru ideology) who played fast and loose with the facts. A majority of the statistics which he used to inspire his reading audience were either exaggerated or outright manufactured. Guru-Mithunaya-6 = many mis-statements. In his publishing campaign as in his larger career, AC seemed to believe (Guru) that the end justified the means.
Copious writing * fantasy facts
In addition to managing (3) the world's largest corporations (of their times) AC wrote constantly throughout his life.
AC wrote hugely popular inspirational books describing the glorious principles (Guru) of commerce which in his view expanded an inclusive (Guru) society. His output included several best-selling inspirational philosophies.
AC's statistical "facts" were adjusted to suit the aim of his inspirational message. Although millions embraced AC's way-showing guidance (Guru), most of his claims about individuals benefiting from the unrestrained, predatory capitalism of his day were drawn from the dreamworld (12).
Messenger Guru-6 appeals to the workers
while not always factual, Carnegie's inspirational writings were enormously popular with his proletarian audience
AC's own brother complained that Andra believed himself nearly infallible. And so did many of AC's worshipful readers. Yet * Vimala Yoga protected AC from culpability.
Guru-6 rules 3-12 * Vimala Yoga protects
Considered a shrewd player who would break any agreement for personal advantage, AC trusted no one and exploited everyone. Nevertheless, Vimala Yoga is highly protective, and AC was never personally harmed by his own expansive (Guru) engagement with hypocrisy and crime.
Far from being a sign of refined character, AC's treasury was derived mainly via crony capitalism = a small coterie of entreasured friends (mainly frenemies) engaged in a lifetime of insider trading
Steel industrialist, evangelist of Capitalist Ideology Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie was an inveterate preacher upon the *moral* virtues of economic capitalism as the order of civilization which brought out the best behaviors of decent folk. The fact that AC's vicious strike-breaking and hostile financial takeovers had murdered, crippled and starved thousands of workers and their families did not disturb the passionate enthusiasm of his many sermons.
Bhava-3 cohort ruled by Guru-6
Worked in various collaborative arrangements with brother (3); teamed with a cohort (3) of investors, a small club (3) of capitalists in the rapidly industrializing northeast USA. Within this group it was said that the members frequently betrayed each other; yet new opportunities for expansion returned them to new distrusting arrangements.
Younger brother Thomas * 3rd-from-Chandra ruled by Guru-6
AC enjoyed a profoundly a codependent relationship with his business-partner brother (3) Thomas Carnegie. Thomas is represented in AC's nativity by 3rd-from-3rd-from-Chandra = the uttama-Rahu-5.
AC was known to have been extremely critical of his younger brother Thomas to the point of bullying. Yet, AC regularly invested Thomas as a full partner with heavy business responsibilities. Apparently, AC was trying try to force young Thomas to fail. However, Thomas never failed.
Thomas became a nouveau-riche robber baron along with AC's entire cohort. Thomas was said to have been quietly capable yet perhaps depressed under the constant pressure from his brother. AC invested his brother with heavy management and supervisory responsibilities, which Thomas handled admirably according to contemporaries. Still, AC was harrassingly critical toward Thomas. Peers noted that although a very wealthy businessman, Thomas died of exhaustion .AC was impossible to satisfy
Sadly, Thomas became a clinical alcoholic (3rd-from-Chandra ruled by Guru-6). He died of pneumonia, the father of nine children, age 43.
AC bullied (Surya) and intimidated his sibling Surya + Mangala ego-aggression. Although a capable businessman, financially privileged and respected in his community, and father of young children, young Thomas Carnegie died of alcoholism indicated by Guru-6. Most observers agreed that Thomas was driven to drink by the relentless abuse heaped upon him by empathy-absent Andrew. Ketu-yuti-Kuja ++ Kuja drishti to Guru-6
Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession
Zukra = combust = 13 degrees distant from Surya.
karmapathi Zukra-Surya-Kuja-Ketu = economic profile = very complex as both arrogant and rapacious whilst also AC = a greatly respected figure to whom was attributed the genius of one skilled in games (Surya).
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani drishti enters 12-4-7
uttama-Shani-10 rules 1+2 ++ Shani rules Chandra.
Uttamza-Shanaicarya is exceptionally structured, dutiful, and systematic in performance of public responsibilities. Uttama-Shani is associated with social justice legislation.

Carnegie in 1878, having made huge profits from the Civil War, holding a stovepipe hat, age 43
| A private letter from Carnegie "to himself" from 1868 diary entry at (note to reader: Carnegie never actually carried through on the plan declared below. He continued to take a huge profit from his vast investments, and spend
luxuriously as he wished. The below proposal does, however, illustrate AC's gifts as a writer and a preacher,

Shimmering Illusion of Intelligence. |
Carnegie Libraries :
"I propose to take an income no greater than $50,000 per annum! Beyond this I need ever earn, make no effort to increase my fortune, but spend the surplus each year for benevolent purposes! Let us cast aside business forever, except for others. Let us settle in Oxford and I shall get a thorough education, making the acquaintance of literary men. I figure that this will take three years active work.
I shall pay especial attention to speaking in public. We can settle in London and I can purchase a controlling interest in some newspaper or live review and give the general management of it attention, taking part in public matters, especially those connected with education and improvement of the poorer classes.
Man must have no idol and the amassing of wealth is one of the worst species of idolatry! No idol is more debasing than the worship of money! Whatever I engage in I must push inordinately; therefore should I be careful to choose that life which will be the most elevating in its character.
To continue much longer overwhelmed by business cares and with most of my thoughts wholly upon the way to make more money in the shortest time, must degrade me beyond hope of permanent recovery. I will resign business at thirty-five, but during these ensuing two years I wish to spend the afternoons in receiving instruction and in reading systematically!"
