BPL commentary

For Chitra-Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Architectural Mechanical Designs * Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Thula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Zukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. They are often found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

Local folk, land ownership, identity

Guru rules Chandra-12 and Guru rules the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra = Meena-3 commrce. In His capacity as ruler of 4th-from-Chandra, Brihaspati occupies the financial 2nd- from-Chandra, suggesting that Pucci acquired wealth by retaining his family social rank )as nichha-corrupted as it was). The general dignity of Guru was occasionally interrupted by nichha-Guru-type things such as taxation issues, but Guru's role as ruler of 4th-from-Chandra suggests that the local folk (4th) supported his land development schemes because they felt a familiarity for the social order which granted those medieval land entitlements.

Kuja ashtangata harana * asta

Mangala-11 rules 4-ethnicity, homeland

By the time Pucci inherited his family's estate, it was no longer a productive farm and it had been ravaged by time and war. Shani-6 rules 2 suggested a lineage weakened by disease or addictions. However, the ancestor guidance via Chandra-12 was substantial. While wealth was no longer absolutely tied to land ownership by the time of Pucci's generation, the artha angle of dhanapathi-in-6 along with Mangala-11 ruling 4-land ownership provided the impetus to make the lands profitable (11) again.

Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci was a respected vintner who produced valued wines on his family's agricultural properties

Mangala rules Dhaniztha

Pucci was a staunch defender of local artisans and farmers of his birthland, the ancient district of Tuscany.

Budha-10 rules 7-10 from Chandra-Dhanushya, indicating a commercial career

Budha-10 public profile in Thula-design

reputation based in artistic design in a variety of commercial products such as garments, ornaments, and wines

  • Guru in bhava-1 * dig-bala * much vitality * jolly personality * generous disposition * numerous identities * much jovial competition * many cheerful sporting activities * believes in direct action * expansive aura * extra height-or-girth * embodiment of jovial cheer * a patron of generous optimism

Guru rules 3-12 and Guru rules 1-4 from Dhanushya Chandra

Pucci has atmakaraka nichha-Guru in kalpasthana which would normally suggest that his personality (1) would derive from the influence of distant lands (12) and the influence of mercantile business (3). Pucci was an internationalized businessman whose world-traveling began in high school and continued without cease through his international fashion clientele.

Guru-nichha identity, lands, nationalism, peasantry

Guru rules 12-3, imagination and business.

EP was creative and driven (Dhaniztha). He had many fabulously wealthy clients (Zukra-11 socialite women). Yet, EP 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.

Many of the development projects (Guru) that Pucci championed seemed misguided (nichha Guru) . A prominent example = his early support for a Fascist Italy. Yet, Guru's ownership of the philosophical Dhanuzya-Chandra =s a compensating factor keeping him close to his roots. In fact, most of his fellow citizens had supported the fascist regime. His nichha related misguidance also formed a bond with local folk.

During his Surya-Guru bhukti 1936-1937, age 23, Pucci wrote a master's thesis entitled "Fascism: An Explanation and Justification". After supervising the thesis, his professor quit the college . Returning to Florence in the subsequent Shani-6 bhukti, Pucci watched his countrymen die from the cruel wartime consequences of Guru's misguided materialism. Pucci stopped publically espousing the Fascist ideology.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-Vrizchika * appreciation of penetrating discovery * likes mysteries * attracted to danger * pleasures of covert power * preference for undisclosed arrangements * phoenix aesthetic of rejuvenation + rebirth * negotiates pleasantly in threatening conditions * seeks equity during sudden upheavals * seeks balance during emergencies * enjoys hidden assets * gracious partner in secret diplomacy
  • Zukra -11 * pleasure of community linkage, enjoys network equity, feminine-figures have social-participation, balanced economies, association with artists and financiers, graciously inter-knit community * pleasing designs to adorn the skin, ankles * appreciation of friendships, aesthetic of fair deals in marketplace, seeks economic justice
  • Zukra-yuti-Surya * balanced roles in drama, appreciation for political display, theatrical negotiations, self-focused arrangements, radiant bright beauty * self-reflexive bargaining, sweetly confident entitlements, enjoys politics, negotiating father-figure, intelligently focused on trades, arrangements, contracts * arrangements according to father's choice or self-will
  • Zukra-yuti-Mangala * sweetened conquests * gracious competition * appreciation for pioneering innovation * aesthetic of sporting interactions * proactive negotiations * musical brother-figure * competitive contracts * accommodating sexuality * prefers relationships with energetic partners

Finance and Feminine Nativities

Karmesha Zukra occupies 11-economics + Zukra rules Chandra in Purva-azadha

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

Zukra-11 yogakaraka rules 5 creativity, entitlement, celebrity, dramatic relationships

bhava-5 = 6th-from-Chandra and bhava-5 receives a vigorous drishti from Guru + Zukra + Mangala + Surya. Therefore as emotionally produced polarizing catalysis as fascist politics was for Pucci, he became a regional politician in the middle phase of his life.

Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci was best known as a fashion designer and businessman due to Zukra karmesha and Mangala-Zukra-Surya-11. Zukra ruling 5 gives him political instincts. For a decade in midlife, Pucci served as a Member of Parliament for Florence and as a Firenze city councilor. He led a significant fundraising effort (Zukra-11) after the devastating floods wiped out art-studios and artisans in Florence.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

lagnesha Shani rules Makara Lagna

  • Shani-Mithunaya * tiresome old documents * resistance to change of explanations * obliged to conform to the hierarchical managers * must materialize orderly information delivery * rigid process handling * heavy old discussions * obligatory, strictly scripted conversations * inflexible instructions * must endure the lowest-common-denominator proletarian communication * slow elderly messengers * vital energy compression stress zone = hand-arm-shoulder * restricted breathing * insufficient team cooperation * must continue to collaborate, cooperate, gesture, and signal despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-6 * must serve the problematic * advantageous placement for outlasting one's enemies; cautious, conventional crimes, chronic illness-injury syndromes

During patriotic Chandra Mahadasha, Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci = fought for Italy in WW-2. However, he then repudiated the fascisti. He then helped secretly move the daughter of Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini (this daughter was Pucci's intimate friend) out of Italy into safety of Switzerland. Occurred during Chandra-Shani bhukti , where Shani rules 12 foreign lands and Shani rules 6th-from-7th breaking oaths of loyalty yet Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra revealing a deeper emotional loyalty.

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

  • 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-2 * * passion for treasuries * in swabhava of Suave Zukra, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual assets, a fascinating voice, remarkable face, intriguing family line, extraordinary languages, mesmerizing sounds, Mixes knowledge from several different traditions (2). Craves unconventional, often shadowed, historical data. Exotic or unusual collections, libraries, records, databases.. Desires a special values-expression role in foods, animal herds, nature conservation, museums.. Privileged-seeking per rashi, in banking, preservation, foods, seeds, mouth-speech-song, Trespasses cultural boundaries of memory and historical truths. Exciting, opportunistic second marriage (if any). Ambitious character of the family traditions, genetic lineage..

Pucci remained a busy bachelor until the age of 45. During Rahu-Rahu swabhukti, he married Baronessa Cristina Nannini di Casabianca. Because his lagnesha Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra, her dignity (Shani) stabilized his later life phases. Due to the respect which accrued to his name after marriage, following the devastating floods in northern Italy, Pucci was able to campaign successfully to achieve global financial support (11) for restoration of damaged local ateliers and artisans (6, workplace).

Rahu-2 also represents the genetic lineage.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Singha * dissociates from creative performance, incomplete entitlement, empty intelligence, dissolute brilliance, not limited by celebrity roles, ignores restriction on political opinion, applies theatrical solipsism to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-8 (beneficial) * Dissolves classified limitations * ambivalent toward secret initiations, disregards occult boundaries, fearless toward mysteries, absent from spouse's family, vacuous confidences, irrelevance of non-disclosure rules * disperses psychic camouflage filters, disinterested in terror. One abandons the in-laws, ignores the false mystifications, dissolves the obfuscations.
