BPL commentary

For Rohini births of a masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Soma-ruled Suravi, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Guidance for the Rohiṇī-born is provided by instructors from the civilizations of Al-debaran. Their purpose is to sweetly protect , defend, and shelter all the creatures and environments which come under their care.

Praujapatya-born gentlemen are often found in the building arts, in caretaking and protective roles, or in specialties of real-estate and property valuation. Their focus is sustainability .

Typically masculine births in Rohini indicate a comfortable, grounded focus into the Shukra-realms of finance, music, luxury goods, and family treasuries.

All four Rohini pada occur within Vrishabha rashi. Surabhi-born thus express a tension between the materialistic, partnership-driven duality of Shukra versus the emotionally based, need-driven behaviors of Chandra. One needs to be soothed in a sensual fashion.

Rohini marriages and financial partnerships are subject an undulating pattern. They feel affectionate appreciation followed by an urge to careful re-evaluation, like the cycle of high tide and low tide.

Known for their intuitive negotiation and equity-seeking skills, Rohini fellows are found in the worlds of environmental science, real-estate, finance, food, investment, evaluation, collections, and treasuries, with special emphasis on sustainability of nutrient and shelter.

Themes of luxury accommodation, sensual nourishment, family affluence, and personal beauty may contextualize Rohini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Rohiṇī - Aldebaran

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80.

" ...a thin person, decidedly underweight,

  • who has a who has a critical and analytical turn of mind.

His critical attitude toward everything and everybody develops, unless checked,

  • into a disposition to find fault continually .

He is inordinately fond of the opposite sex

  • But although be may at first be blind to the faults of the object of his devotion,

a time will come eventually when his fault-finding propensities will exert themselves in this direction."

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.

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.

EPP stopped publicly 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.

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

Also, Pushya-svamsha is unswervingly patriotic, even if the nationally leadership is terribly wrong.

  • 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

Shukra shaped Pucci as both an artist and a fighter.

  • 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.

YOGAKARAKA Shani rules

  • 9-beliefs, ideology, doctrine, patronage, father, catechesis
  • 10 career, profession, civic duty, 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-Mithuna-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] consecration of marriage 1-of-1 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.

[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.
