BPL commentary

For Mriga-shiras 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 paradigm of Mangala-ruled Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, attack, and provoke.

Verbally Incisive and Commanding

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. Agrahayani-born are often found in politics, manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are often accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an exceptionally acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha-Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Shukra-Kuja attraction.

Those born in pada 1-2 pursue artistic communications, legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded enclosures, such as research laboratories, private rooms, or the imagination. They have special gifts for fantasy, imagery, and distant worlds. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Mrigazirasha have a stronger propensity toward guidance [9] and governance roles [10] ....

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Mrigashira-Invaka.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

Vintner Farmer

Pucci 's artistic reputation [7 = 10th-from-10] and political identity [ [Surya in bhava-7] bandesha] were rooted in his ancestral estate in Tuscany near Fiorenza.

In this place EPP was born, and in this place his family had lived [according to him] for 1000 years.

  • The lineage were originally construction workers [Surya rules 4 construction] .
  • They were given land endowments in exchange for their work on the local medieval infrastructure such as defensive walls and stone bridges.

Patriot Defender

In addition to his legendary garment-design career [Shukra] Pucci was an avid vintner of wine grapes grown on his properties [4] .

  • EPP took care to employ the established local farming families [4] in the operation of his fields.

Surya-yuti-Kuja indicates his willingness [Surya] to fight [Kuja] for the homeland.

Innovative textile fibers + fabrications

* cutting, sewing, WW-2 fighter pilot

Mangala the innovator + Shukra-yuti-Surya

Before entering the world of fashion design, EPP had been a championship skier [Mangala]. He also served as a WW-2 fighter pilot [Kuja]. EPP understood the benefits of flexible, sturdy. water-resistant fabrication.

As a fashion designer, Pucci revolutionized the garment manufacturing industry. He began working with new artificial fibers such as nylon and polyester. Originally developed for specialized military-athletic clothing and equipment, these new textiles responded well to the new generation of brightly hued chemical dyes. Pucci was among the first to use the new lab-grown fibers in garments for daily wear.

Mangala in bhava-7 governs

  • 7-contracts, trading, legal settlements, deeds of title
  • 12-distant lands, sequestered space, isolation, research
  • ++ 12th-from-Chandra
  • ++ 5th-from-Chandra

7 = 4th-from-4th lands and properties

By the time Pucci inherited his family's estate, the farms were no longer productive. The properties had been ravaged by many decades of neglect. Shani-2 suggests an ancient lineage weakened by time, scarcity, or deprivation.

Vṛścika rejuvenating the vinyards

Although wealth was no longer absolutely tied to land ownership by the arrival of Pucci's generation, Surya bandhesha joins Mangala ruler of 4th-from-4th. EPP's dynamic and imaginative [12] approach to the conditions of his homeland [Surya activates 4] provided the impetus to rejuvenate the lands [Vṛścika]. Once the farms were reinvigorated, EPP became a respected vintner producing quality wines on his family's agricultural properties

EPP remained a staunch advocate [7] for local artisans [Shukra] and farmers [4] of his birthland, the ancient Etruscan region.

  • 2-capital wealth, assets, tradition, color-values, bloodlines, lineage knowledge
  • 5 creativity, entitlement, celebrity, drama
  • ++ 7th-from-Chandra
  • ++ 10th-from-Chandra

CAREER - Budha

Commercial [Budha] production of color-values [2] fashions of the entitled [5] = patterns, garments, ornaments.

Busy Budha activates both 7th-from-Chandra [emotional contracts such as marriage] ++ 10th-from-Chandra = public familiarity. The public generally perceived EPP as a businessman + skilled handcraft pattern-cutter.

Budha in bhava-6 [svabhava] EP was also known as a former military fighter pilot [Budha mapping pilot]


dhava-karaka [husband] bahuta-karaka [variety]

[nīcha] - [rules 8 + 11] - [svabhava]

[karako bhavo nashto for father, patrons, indoctrinators]

[ruler of 8 + 11 in 9 = multiple, secretive, gainful father-figures]

[mysterious randhresha for Urisha indriya-lagna]

[gainful vriddhi-pati for Urisha indriya-lagna]

[misguidedly permissive patronage]

[numerous optimistically corrupt patriarchs]

[worldview guided by materialistic ideology]

[pragmatic philosophy of religion]

[falsely cheerful father-figures]

[class-conscious understanding of paradigmatic belief]

[gainfully expansive patrician entitlements]

[guru-figures may provide misleading spiritual guidance]


[Atmakaraka globalism, humanism, worldview, expansion, understanding, credenda, ideology]


  • [Guru-Makara-Draco] understands social structure * numerous law-makers * class-conscious convictions * conventional doctrine * believes in common sense * pragmatic guidance * philosophical realism * diverse social responsibilities * materialistic worldview * faith in hierarchies * preaches about wise governance * widens the scope of bureaucracy
  • [Guru in bhava-9] tolerance for diverse doctrines * multiple beliefs * expansive ideology * much sermonizing * broad humanistic understanding * sanctimonious father * multiple father-guru-professor figures * extensive worldview * patron of philosophy * in a wifely nativity, husbandly-companion may be an ideologue or spiritual guide


DHANAYOGA * Guru in 11th-from-11th activates 11

Benevolent but Fallen Brihaspati activates Chandra-Dhanus ++ Guru activates Meena = Bhava-11 = the defensive, culturally-rooted, seasonal-calendar, routinized, patriotic, ethno-nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning, ethnic 4th-from-Chandra


Pucci used his family's decrepit-but-familiar social rank to build economic connections.

  • [nīcha] Guru-type behaviors such as misappropriation and tax-avoidance did occur.
  • Nichha Guru = Fallen Patrons = appeals to local folk

Brihaspati's role as ruler of 4th-from-Chandra suggests that the local folk [4th] supported EPP's land development schemes because they felt a familiarity toward the corrupt-but-comfortable atmakaraka Guru-Makara patronage which had claimed the original medieval land entitlements.

Guru in bhava-9 rules 8 + 11 +++ Guru activates 1 + 4 from Chandra-Dhanus


Pucci was an internationalized businessman whose world-traveling began in high school and continued without cease through his international fashion clientele.

Aesthetics more than Finance

EPP was an aesthete [Rohini] .

He had many fabulously wealthy clients [Shukra-7 trade-exchange with ladies tastes] .

  • Yet, EPP was never a super wealthy individual [HNWI] .
  • Indeed, had his company not been bought from his daughter by a 75% investor, this world-renowned fashion house would have likely stopped producing income.

Misguided Principles = nichha Guru-9 ideology, beliefs

Many of the development projects [Guru] that Pucci championed seemed misguided [nichha Guru] most notably EPP's early and vigorous support for the expansion [Guru] of Fascist Italy.

Yet, Guru's ownership of the philosophical Chandra-Dhanus = compensating factor keeping EPP closer to his roots. He was not alone ideologically. Most of his fellow citizens supported the fascist regime. EPP's [nīcha] Guru misguidance also formed a bond with local folk [Chandra]. Despite the violent collapse of Mussolini's regime, EPP's patriotism was benevolently remembered.

During Chandra-Guru bhukti 1937, age 23, Pucci wrote a master's thesis entitled "Fascism: An Explanation and Justification". After supervising the thesis, EPP's upset professor expressed profound disagreement with its premises.

Returning to Florence in the subsequent Shani bhukti, Pucci watched his countrymen die from the cruel wartime consequences of Guru's misguided materialism. Pucci stopped publically espousing the Fascist ideology. Guru also rules Meena-11, allowing EPP to switch focus away from beliefs and into economic development in the postwar years.


svadu-karaka [sweet] kalatra-karaka [wifely companion]

Often in conflicted situations = Urisha indriya-lagna = 6th-from-Chandra

  • EPP drove the car which secretly tranfered Mussolini 's daughter out of Italy and into the safety of neutral Switzerland. * Chandra-Shukra * Shukra rogesha conflict, crime + lagnesha relationships, loyalty

Complex personality

  • Urisha indriya-lagna receives a vigorous Parashari drishti from Guru + Shukra + Mangala + Surya

Imagination [Kuja vyaya-pati] + design [Shukra]

EPP generated a large inventory of visionary designs from the recesses of his imagination.

  • Although some of his pigments were derived from the Tuscan traditions, most of the patterns which produced his wealth were boldly imaginary.
  • His use of industrially produced chemical color-dyes for textile printing = both innovative [Kuja] and beautiful [Shukra].
  • Virtually all of EPP's fabrics were synthetic, factory-produced fibers [Mriga manufacturing]

Finance + Feminine Nativities

Shukra-7 occupies 7-brokerage, bargaining, equity, agreements, trade + Shukra activates arts-and-music Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Apah

  • EPP worked with feminine clients, feminine fashion models, and feminine business owners in an arts-and-music dominated industry of ornamentation and fashion design.
  • EPP was a romantic figure, well known for his premarital adventures with both the ladies and the gentlemen Shukra-yuti-Mangala.
  • His daughter took the helm of his business after EPP retired.

Shukra-7 lagnesha + rogesha

  • Pucci developed a global elite clothing design and manufacturing business. His pattern designs are still reproduced.
  • Along with his luxurious color-craft, EPP is also known for his relationship to Mussolini's daughter, and his Italian fighter-pilot service in WW-2.


duro-karaka [endurance] *jara-karaka [Jahre, years]

  • Arudra-Shani-Mithunaya * tiresome old documents * resists new explanations * must conform to management hierarchy * must continue orderly communications * rigid process handling * heavy old discussions * obligatory scripted conversations * inflexible instructions * must endure proletarian talk * slow elderly messengers * tightly structured dialog * compression upon hand-arm-shoulder * restricted breathing * insufficient team cooperation * overburdened collaborations * scarce information resources * maintainer of old business
  • [Shani in bhava-2] steady time-structured values-fulfillment * scarcity of precious resources * must preserve historic traditions * must gather * must catalog * obstructionist family-of-origin * must remember * cautious use of words * boney face * tense eyes * class-conscious speech * speakers' fatigue * chronic financial insufficiency * undernourished eye-teeth * must use old libraries * cold dried food hoard * limited sight * ossified heritage * language regulator * appreciates ignorance * maintains treasuries of proven knowledge * elders impose know-nothing rules


YOGAKARAKA Shani rules

  • 9-beliefs, ideology, doctrine, patronage, father, catechesis
  • 10 career, profession, reputation, social duties, responsibility for maintaining the public order

EPP used his family lineage status [yogakaraka Shani-2] to fundraise throughout Europe on behalf of the flood-devastated craftspeople of his Florentine region. Shani-Mithunaya-2 = responsibility for common working craftspeople.

Marriage = yogakaraka Shani-2 in 7th-from-Chandra

bloodline lineage respect

Pucci remained a busy bachelor until the age of 45.

Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani activates 7th Kumbha navamsha

  • Feb-1959 [EPP age 45] exchange of marriage vows with Baronessa Cristina Nannini di Casabianca *

Because his Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra, her dignity [Shani] stabilized his later life phases.

In a land where old families continue to receive social privilege, considerable respect accrued to his name after marriage.

  • Using his lifepartner's ancestral status [Shani] to further dignify his name, following the devastating floods in northern Italy,
  • Pucci was able to campaign successfully to achieve global financial support for restoration of damaged local ateliers and artisans.

  • [Rahu-Kumbha] shimmering illusion of webwork * craving for community * over-reaching voluntary connections * mirage of material science * fabulous marketplace associations * extraordinary friendliness * intriguing ecologies * mask of lawfully interlinked systems * fascinating networks * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of futurism, social participation linkage, economic distributions, socialite-roles
  • [Rahu in bhava-10] passion for leadership power * in svabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous executive decisions * thrilled by iconic status * craves symbolic importance * hungers for regulatory authority * outsider who cleverly insinuates into lawful governance * cleverly challenges official rules * mesmerizing ascent to high social status * may pose as a boss * shimmering smoky illusion of legitimate power * trespasses cultural limits of old hierarchies * boundary-breaching hunger for commanding roles * ambition for elite rank * desires to hold a respected position * opportunistic climb to top of the corporate pyramid * culturally-mixed reputation * ambition of the father's family

kavandha-karaka [headless] chidra-karaka [gaping] vasana-karaka [vacuum]

  • [Ketu-Singha] brightly dissociates from creative performance * fragmented entitlements * eccentric intelligence * peculiar brilliance * not limited by celebrity roles * ignores restriction on political opinion * releases a sparkling crimson cloud of divine charisma into the misty abyss
  • [Ketu in classroom-4] ambivalent toward the cultural foundations * absentee mother-figure * disregards local customs * dissolved property boundaries * wanders from the ancestral home * often away * ignores conventional schooling * irrelevance of habitual folkways * surrenders nationality * dismisses the parents * abandons the established routines * may prefer to live free from fixed roots


Ketu in classroom-4 diploma, license, graduation, schooling

There is a lasting uncertainty [Ketu] regarding the validity or invalidity [Ketu] of EPP's Ph.D. in political science and law, granted by the University di Firenze.

  • In 1941 [EPP age 26] supposedly amid active service as a working torpedo bomber pilot during a vicious and exhausting war, EPP was [questionably] awarded a Ph.D. in political science and law by University di Firenze.
  • In 1941, EPP was a fervent Fascist. He may have been awarded an academic doctorate for writing a propaganda document, perhaps envisioned to be used in the new Fascist indoctrinations at the universities.
  • EPP may also have re-submitted his completed master's thesis from Reed College, which was a properly supervised academic treatise with academic citations, if not a great work of literature.
  • Or perhaps, he wrote nothing at all, during this hectic and dangerous time, but was awarded by graft in a nation known for excellence in this art.
  • Having received the doctorate, EPP never published any research nor taught in academics.
  • He did teach skiing.
