Masculine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, 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 from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.

Laws and Customs

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as transportation, farming and fishing, home-building and real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles [Shani] that provide an orderly process [Shani] for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"An earnest, thoughtful character,

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

  • and a supporter of church and religious activities.

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."


George Soros' third lifepartnership = wedding to Tamiko Bolton on Sep-2013 (GS age 83, TB age 41)

Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros *17-Sep-1960 married German immigrant, Annaliese Witschak. GS was a Hungarian-speaking, culturally Jewish man and she was a German-speaking, culturally Christian woman. Along with the dhanabhava focus on treasuries, 7th-from-Chandra contains commercial Simha-Budha taking drishti of Rahu-10 the cultural mix-master. The union prospered financially, producing also the wealth of three children during a 23-year alliance.


Suggestions from a reader re: Mr. Soros' Jyotishavidya nativity:

Respected Madame, I guess his chart should have the birth time of around 2:10 AM..

The dasha on Sep 16 1992 is Venus-Rahu-Jupiter....Rahu is vargottam in 11th house... exalted venus yuti jupiter in 10th navamsha. ~~ regards

Hi, I am very glad that you are working on Mr. George Soros chart.

I truly idolize him and actually wanted to be like him though it may be just a dream. Please accept my thanks.

I would request you to discuss his extraordinary intuition ability (he used to get a backache whenever there was a problem with his portfolio and it used to go away as soon as he corrected it), success in financial markets, abstract philosophical bent, struggle with living in his early years, also if his charitable acts (Seva, karmic points) helped him in retaining his wealth/position....

In march 2000 his fund SOROS fund management suffered the biggest loss (few billion dollars) which led to his separation with his fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller (he is the same person together with whom he had made 1 B usd on 16th Sep,1992) and after that he stopped taking high risk in his investments.

Hope to see your full analysis soon.

Best Regards

  • Soros famously Broke the Bank of England in a shrewd and devastating gamble for the valuation of the pound-sterling . Mangala-Urisha aggressive, competitive valuation
