Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Pushya - Sidhya

Tisya - Poosam - Pushyami - Paukshakya - Vutkrita - Barhaspatya - Indrapurohita - Avra


For Pushyami births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlementr.

Laws and Customs

[Shani] -ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as pathwaus of transportation, farming + fishing, home-building + real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles [Shani] that provide an orderly process [Shani] for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82r.

" An earnest, thoughtful character,

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

  • and a supporter of church and religious activities.

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."
