Dhaniṣṭha-Delphinus * Vasu
Slaviztha * Avittam * Hrsikesha
For Dhaniṣṭha births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, 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.
Dhaniṣṭha-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-directed 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.
Dhaniṣṭha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Like genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. When Dhaniṣṭha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and dominated by men.
Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic, competitive movement. These men thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniṣṭha are determined to win the contest, at any cost.
Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-lands-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 activates 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 activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.
Themes of band-of-brothers, 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. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniṣṭha

"A very vital character,
The morals of this man are not above reproach .
He will be distinguished in many cases by some slight physical defect
Laurene Powell Jobs, c. 2018
Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs * rogesha Guru-Mithunaya yuti Ketu-Mithunaya * left a mixed legacy of extraordinary, paradigm-changing electronic inventions ++ reprehensible personal behavior. Although he from friends and fellow-travelers (Kanya-6 crimes), SPJ's transgressions were relatively petty [Kanya]. Ultimately, SPJ's misdoings were overshadowed [Rahu] by the social importance of his expansive, visionary imagination (Guru activates 12). Likely, SPJ provoked a desire for revenge among those whom he had harmed. Yet, during his 56 years of life, SPJ avoided the most severe potentials of criminal conviction. The daughter whom he disavowed (6) was finally acknowledged and the long trail of nasty disagreements (6) with co-workers was mainly forgiven, due to the dispersing effects of Ketu.
Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs was a showman and preacher of electronic devices and a new civilization emerging. His father-figures and his own fatherly role was somewhat scattered However, by Guru-yuti-Ketu-3

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Jobs' bio-dad = Abdulfattah Jandali.
As a grad student in economics Surya-Kumbha, dad immigrated into the US from Syria. At the time of Steve Jobs' birth, dad was completing his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Jandali later held several university teaching positions, including political economics instructor at University of Nevada. Surya in bhava-1 rules 4th-from-4th teaching, consulting.
Bio-dad's adult livelihood = restaurateur, casino manager (Surya games, gambling) + businessman
Bio-dad Jandali reportedly said that he had no interest in meeting his famous son, because he expected to be accused of seeking money from his offspring. In actions which suggest the underlying blaming-shaming patterns of clinical narcissism, SPJ publicly, contemptuously disavowed the bio-dad who had rejected him as an infant.
8th-from-Surya Typically, Represents the Next-step Father-figure.
Also, consider 8th-from-9th = bhava-4.
Because Surya in bhava-1 has no companion graha, only one father-figure is recognized.
8th-from-Surya = Kanya-8
by SPJ's own account, Dad was hardworking and supportive if somewhat distant (8, undisclosing)
The adoptive father was a modest rank-and-file worker = Kanya. He worked primarily as a machinist at a pre-Silicon-Valley laser factory. Adoptive father's career included extra work [Kanya] as a tow-truck driver and a "repo man" = lock-breaker (8) who is paid to repossess the automobiles of those who failed to repay their car-loan. Failed loan contract = Kanya. Midnight repo = 8, surprise.
Surya-Kumbha electro-magnetic field centrality.
Dad converted the garage of the family home into an electronics tinkering workshop for teenager SPJ. Spare parts from the warehouses of early-stage Silicon Valley were easily obtained.
CAREER - SURYA
Surya-Kumbha = primarily a transmitter (Arka) of electronic and economic systems. Arka loses some of the natural solar confidence due to the strict materialism of Shani-ruled Kumbha.
For a masculine nativity, sparkling Surya in svakshetra of Shani may have economic genius paired with Shani-weakened confidence in one's ability to live by the bright light of Surya's divine truth.
Bright, Smart, Gamey, Gridwork-focused
Surya in bhava-1 dramatic talent, center-stage confidence. SPJ performed brilliantly at massive (Kumbha masses) promotional conferences + electronics events [Kumbha]
Surya-Kumbha = possessed of connectivity intelligence. Due to Shani's overbearing demand to serve the gridwork, one may struggle to maintain personal integrity.
Although potentially an economic genius, Surya-Kumbha-1 = self-referential in relationships (7). Contracts, agreements, alliances = perceived as a game [Surya] to be won (1) by out-smarting the Other.
Surya creative empowerment within the existing marketplace gridwork
At a time when computers cost millions of dollars, stored in special air-cooled room, and operated by mysterious program-coders, SPJ envisioned a proletarian desktop-sized computer being used as a household appliance
Genius [Surya] for popular consumer economics [Kumbha]
More conventional business minds found this visionary viewpoint rather singular [Surya] and not widely applicable to the consumer market.
Contradictory narratives of Surya vs. Kumbha
Surya-Kumbha is a challenging placement. Sparkling, unique Surya must try to express His personal, political, creative, dramatic genius within a strict system-regulated economic transaction network [Kumbha]
Occasionally, this pattern mismatch results in acts of personal-override of the community rules, producing dishonesty in obtainment of marketplace revenues. Add the out-smarting self-referential relationship style of Surya in bhava-1, and the tendency to disregard equity in partnership becomes pronounced.

MOTHERS + Parents
Birth-mom = Joanne Carole Schieble.
Next-step parents = Shani-Tula-9 occupies 8th-from-Chandra-2
Lifetime adoptive mother
Clara Jobs = lagnesha + atmakaraka + Shani-Tula [uchcha] 9, suggesting a strict, consistently lawful personality in the role of indoctrinator, muse, teacher of belief, maintainer of convictions.
8th-from-Chandra = Shani-Tula [uchcha] 9
The adoptive parents contributed a dignified working-class identity ([uchcha] Shani).
MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Extra stress for fair contractual agreements
CAREER - CHANDRA
10th-from-Chandra = Familiar Face Public Image
SPJ roller-coaster career swung from ignominy and rejection toward fame and glory and back again.
SPJ had many ups-and-downs in his storied electronics-design career. He was most successful as a fiery preacher [Dhanus] hyper-promoter [Rahu] and designer [Shukra].
CAREER - MANGALA
Chronic tension via the oppressive, irritating mutual drishti of Shani-and-Mangala.
Karmesha Mangala activates Vṛścika Svamsha
Typical of Shani-besieged Mangala-3-Aśvini, hyper-confident launches often hit obstacles. Inventive salesman SPJ aggressively promoted and developed all products = those which succeeded brilliantly, and those which failed to thrive.
Promoted the re-interpretations (3) of the electronic computer intos a home appliance (3) +++ changed the familiar telephone device (3) into a personal management system (3)
CAREER - BUDHA
CAREER - GURU
Brihaspati activates Dhanus-11 = 10th-from-Chandra
Indulgent, sensually expansive Mutual-drishti of Guru-and-Shukra
Guru-5 Mithunaya = sales, management, product development, advertising ** constant promotion of new technology [Mithunaya] via explanation, description, pronouncements
Childhood Home and Parents * Brihaspati ruler of Chandra occupies 4th-from-Chandra
CAREER - SHUKRA
Otherworldly, exaggerated, unusual design of homes, buildings, vehicles -- even a big yacht
Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)
[Atmakaraka] = economics, social-participation, systems, distribution networks, associations, regulations, material consequences
CAREER - RAHU
Chronic tension via the oppressive, irritating mutual drishti of Shani-and-Mangala.
Shani located in 8th-from-Chandra demonstrates the ongoing emotional pressure to complete materially structurally socially required professional duties before the deadline
The immovable object ([uchcha] Shani) is placed in constant tension with the irresistible force ([Mūla] Rahu-amplified svakshetra-Mangala-3-Aśvini).
The result = extremely productive, irascible, offensive, dominating, and brooks no resistance until Shani gains strength via transit or bhukti rulership.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
Rahu-11 iconic inspirational marketplace opportunism
Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
CAREER - KETU
Ketu-yuti-Guru Mithunaya-5 * vague, conceptual, philosophical, unclear, inaccurate, information about children, romance, speculative finance, games, winnings
