Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttarabhadrapada * Ohibridna * Uttara-Proshtha-padas * Andromeda

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Uthratadhi, 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 by emissaries from the civilizations of Andromeda. Their purpose is multi-dimensional structural integrity and species resilience.

Responsible Charity

Meena pada 1-2-3-4 represents Shani's rulership of 11-systems ++ 12- distant worlds, imaginative vision. Guru and Shani are mutually neutral, suggesting that personality distortions are uncommon with Andromeda-born. Pada 1-2-3-4 have an extraordinary capacity to carry responsibility for others.

Uttara-bhadra born are often found in economic, ecological, community linkage, and networking roles which structurally engage invisible understandings, distant realms, interior visionary comprehension, and enduring patience.

Themes of maintaining continuity between systems, containment of inner understanding over time, and sustaining of proven profitable patterns may characterize Ahirbudhnya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttarabhadra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 85

"...most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Behari opines, "Mercury occupying this sign and house produces a great Yoga, heralding the birth of a great soul. Your thinking is very evolved and guides you to a high social status. Your understanding of divine wisdom is deep; you are especially an expert in the life sciences. There is no aggressive behavior."

accurate uttama-Budha + incisively criticizing Mangala-Kanya = strategic belligerence, drishti of Kuja upon 7 (lawcourts) 10 (leadership) and 11 (economic systems)

  • reputed for quick verbal reflexes, including miraculously smart with calculations (Budha) and downright adversarial in verbal confrontation (Mangala)

  • Zukra-Budha bhukti 1998 anti-trust trial US versus Microsoft kept Gates' verbally self-confident and slightly aggressive personality high in the public limelight. During public inquiry, Gate's aggressive business tactics were were revealed as having been characteristically never harmful to individuals, but warrior-like against competing businesses.

    Rahu-6 can be criminalized and Kuja-Kanya-4 rules Rahu-6. However Budha dominates Kuja. Gates was alternately evasive and philosophically dramatic in testimony. No long-term damage was done to Microsoft - nor to Gates' personal wealth, which continued to rise and rise. \

Bandhesha Budha-yuti-Mangala in 4th-from-4th education. Gates abandoned Harvard College after his freshman year and never returned. He complained (Kuja-Kanya) that the conventional educational model was too slow for him.

Bill Gates met Melinda French Gates at a business-related dinner party (Zukra luxuries) with courtly entertainment (Surya). Mr. Gates' Zukra yuti sober, architectural uttama-Shani and rogesha-Surya-8. The life-mate must be capable of dealing with crime and poverty (Surya) sustaining an architectonic level of social responsibility (Shani) as well as the pressures of fame (Surya) and maintaining a pleasant appearance (Zukra). Naturally the couple met at a "working dinner". Their three children reached adulthood.

Surya + Zukra + Shani == 8th-from-Chandra = complex undisclosed relationships, assets, information, ideas, contracts. Camouflaged activities of the mother.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani in Bhava-8 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious transformations. One must slowly, inexorably change the old order. One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner.

Shani Ashtamsha events 1983-1985 and 2011-2014 via bhava-8-Thula speculative intelligence. 1983-1985 = long delay in bringing out the first edition of Windows operating system for the new PC appliance Uttama-Shani + Surya-yuti-Zukra occupy the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . therefore one becomes is accustomed to long delays in creative-speculative outcome.

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

  • Rahu-Vrizchika * shimmering illusion of mystery * craving for rebirthed identity * unusual approach to dangerous, cultural-mixing conditions * over-reaching engagement with hidden empowerments * preposterous camouflage * mesmerizing power of rejuvenation * fabulous surgeries * exotic undisclosed assets * mask of transformative arcane knowledge * intriguing enactment of revolutionary force * marvelous obscure liaisons * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of healing shakti, emergency intervention, seeks privilege via secret-revealing, shocking insights, discovery-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-9 * passion for philosophy, preaching * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview. Rahu-9 desires a thrilling, important guidance role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy, indoctrination. Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Surreptitious attempt to appear as a global, humanistic, ideologically-framed agent of understanding. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any).

Rahu in bhava-9 resides in 9th-from-Chandra

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Urisha * dissociates from collections, incomplete acquisition, empty values , dissolute treasury, not limited by storage, disarrayed lineage, ignores restriction on speech-voice-sight
  • Ketu in classroom-3 * absentee sibling, off-topic communications, disinterested in daily discourse, dissolved messaging boundaries, disregards conventional discussions, eccentric or esoteric modes of writing, irrelevance of the mental narrative. One abandons the management tasks, the standard explanations, the usual descriptions.

Rahu-Kumbha 10th navamsha = leadership role in the information economy

Ketu Mahadasha * age 19.8 until 26.8 occurred at a socially harmless and creatively helpful time. Ketu bhukti follow a script of anti-regulation when a certain amount of "blowing in the wind" is expected. Ketu's ruler Zukra controls 3-8 from Chandra-lagna and 5-12 from Mithunaya lagna, suggesting identity transformations and early relationships. The seven lost years of Ketu struck Bill at the perfect age. Very young adulthood is a time when western society allows its developing young leaders to experiment and float through various roles.

Marriage = Mangala-4 produces a significant Kuja Dosha.

  • 7th-from-Chandra-10 =Budha= bandesha-4 + yuvatipathi-7 from Meena Chandra suggests that the first wife is primarily a householder, schoolteacher, and parent. However, the analytical and economic indicators Budha-yuti-Kuja also suggests an exceptionally sharp mentality of the first spouse. Mrs. Melinda French Gates Chandra-Anuradha matches Bill Gates axis Rahu-Ketu.

Mutual aspect of dhanesha-treasurer-2 Chandra (assets) to vriddhipathi-11 Kuja (economic gains)

Vriddhipathi-11 Kuja yuti uttama lagnesha-1 Budha Budha-yuti-Kuja

Problem-pursuer Kanya Kujashows the powerfully critical, incisive, investigative penetration of Mars.

Budha holds the higher degree winning the yuddha - which means that metalized computational and interpretive analyses use critical thinking modalities to explain situations rather than Kuja's default which is to instinctively react.

This combination of Budha-yuti-Kuja receiving drishti of Chandra-Meena-10 has the potential to collapse into simple complaining, but due to the dominance of uttama-Budha the logical arguments -- however vociferous -- are not overwhelmed by rogesha Mangala's apprehension of problematicity.

Vriddhipathi-11 Mars occupies a navamsha of Budha. Radix Budha indicates the means of economic gain. Uttama-Budha = also lagnesha-1 = mental focus. Add to the mental acuity, the energetic enthusiasm and aggressive critiquing of Mangala-Kanya. Pursuit of logical outcomes . Like most financially privileged people, his rogesha-6 is comfortably configured - which means he has extremely high intelligence for managing debt.

Kuja is associated with animosity and illness, but because Kuja is dominated in degree by the excellent uttama-Budha, the most vulgar effects generally do not emerge.

  • As rogesha-6 Kuja can motivate complex banking activities (loans); as Vriddhipathi-11 Kuja may bring tremendous gains in the marketplace.

  • The fuel for these activities, by and large gainful, is the superior analytical intelligence of Mercury.

  • Danger of accident especially under Kuja/Chandra; tendency to bowel illness; but also the intelligence to correct diet. Auspicious therefore.

  • as philanthropist, Bill and Melinda Gates have focus on a bring up the bottom approach, supporting the most basic layers of schooling housing and security= Bhava-4 foundations

  • They target the highest unrealized potential = the bottom layer of women and girls

  • health-care (Kanya-4) in a tightly argued and data-driven (logical reasoning, Kanya) ministry of service


Guru is a multiplier. Guru in bhava-3 indicates multiplicity of commercial activities, many reports and announcements, much detailed writing, a tremendous number of meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops, and presentations.

Brihaspati's ruler is the nichha-bhanga Surya-5 in 3rd-from-3rd suggesting that the father-figure provides substantial role-modeling for the business behaviors.

Zukra in bhava-5 * Zukra-Thula

uttama-Shani + swakshetra Zukra = putra-bhava-5= intelligence, Children, Genius, Speculation, Entitlements

Zukra came into full power as the mahadasha-pati when Gates was 27, simultaneous with life-shaping Rahu-Ketu opposition-to-axis transit (which happens for everyone approx. age 27-29).

  • vidyapathi-5 in 5; Dharmesha-9 in 5

  • bhratrupathi-3 + vidyapathi-5 + Dharmesha-9 , all very strong

  • bhagya vidyapathi-5 swakshetra Zukra (see Parashara key wealth indicators)

  • bhagya yoga: Dharmesha-9 uttama-Shani in bhava-5 of speculation gives an advanced knowledge of principles of law, social justice, fairness, and equity. This moral asset bears financial fruits. the native 's philanthropic motives are extremely strong (charitable instincts are always blessed), and also his sense of value in equity guides superior investments.

  • debilitated bhratrupathi-3 Surya which rules daily business administration and is the karaka for self-made-wealth. Well-situated nichha-bhanga graha are the strongest planets of all!

  • Surya gets extreme strength through D-9 position which gives the results of Surya's cotenant uttama-Shani

~~300 Important Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotishi B. V. Raman

commentary on Madhya Vayasi Dhana Yoga

"A perusal of astrological literature bearing up ''Wealth' reveals clearly that in order to become rich, one should have in his horoscope combinations which comprehend a point of contact between lords of Lagna, 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th.

Permutations and combinations of these lords give rise to a stupendous number of Dhana Yogas "

re: "Altruistic Intent"

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso ~~ H.H. Dalai Lama, The Dalai Lama at Harvard: Lectures on the Buddhist Path to Peace


  • When a practitioner of the Great Vehicle vows not to enter into nirvana until all beings are liberated,

  • how is it possible to fulfill this vow?


Three modes of generating an altruistic intention to become enlightened are described -- like a king, like a boatman, and like a shepherd.

  • In the first, that like a king, one first seeks to attain a high state after which help can be given to others.

  • In the second, like a boatman, one seeks to cross the river of suffering together with others.

  • In the third, like a shepherd, one seeks to relieve the flock of suffering beings from pain first, oneself following afterward.

These are indications of the style of the altruistic motivation for becoming enlightened.

In actual fact, there is no way that a Bodhisattva either would want to or could delay achieving full enlightenment.

As much as the motivation to help others increases, so much closer does one approach Buddhahood."

Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates * a case for critical review of avasta doctrine

Zukra in Jagrat-avasta (awakening state) is said to produce full expected results.

  • Zukra in bhava-8 yuti-Shani-yuti-Surya acquires Lajjitavastha (Salajjita Avastabha)
  • Surya at 11-Thula + Zukra at 27-Thula provides a 16-degree distance between Surya and Zukra = not in the classical asthagata-harana range of combustion.
  • According to BPHS Ch-45, shloka 17 (Other Avasta) "If a planet is conjunct the Sun and is aspected by or conjunct a malefic or is aspected by an enemy, it is said to be in Kshobhitavastha."
  • Shloka-22 predicts "If a planet in the 5th house is in Lajjitavastha, there will be destruction of progeny, or there will be only one surviving child." (Salajjita Avastabha)
  • According to shloka-26, "A planet in Lajjitavastha will give aversion to God, loss of intelligence, loss of child, interest in evil speeches, and listlessness in good things."
  • According to shloka-27, "A planet in Kshobhitavastha will give acute penury, evil disposition, miseries, financial debacles, distress to feet and obstruction to income due to royal wrath." Furthermore,"The houses occupied by a planet in Kshuditavastha or Kshobhitavastha are destroyed."

There is some room for interpretation.

Conjunction (yuti) is generally understood to mean same-rashi. Within Mr. Gates' sequence Shani-29, Zukra-27, and Surya-11 not only does Zukra hold a higher degree than Surya but also Shani is a great friend of Zukra. The shloka might be interpreted to imply that Surya cannot at the same time qualify as the Ray-Burner and the required yuti-papagraha (malefic)... it could be argued that Kshobita avasta due to Surya and Shani is not present in this nativity.


  • The public evidence demonstrates that Zukra was not crippled in His karaka functions of treasuries acquisition, marriage and partnership, nor as the putrapathi in regard to children. Gates enjoyed Zukra Mahadasha * age 26.8 until 46.8. This mahadasha began with Microsoft's IPO to become a publicly traded company, and end with him a the top of the global HNWI list. He was married during Zukra-Guru subperiod; the marriage alliance not only endured but had worldwide impact via their philanthropy. Three healthy children were born during Zukra mahadasha.
