Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha-Delphinus * Vasu

BPL commentary

For Dhaniztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, 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.

Dhaniztha-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.

Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniztha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and dominated by men.

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 rules 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 rules 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. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."

Budha rules 8-identity transformation

Budha in bhava-9 rules 4-domestic 7-lawcourts, attorneys. Much of GE's income was camouflaged (8) from US govt taxation. This treasury was hidden due to much of it having global origin (Guru global) but also due to the legal manipulations of the US tax code effected by the shrewd corporate lawyers empowered via Welch's Zukra-7 (lawcourts) ++ Zukra Parivartamsha yoga Budha-8 (obscuration, hiding, confidential information, secret treasuries)

Zukra nichha suggests persistent issues with women, and repeating patterns of disagreement in matters of equity, contracts, and values. Broken contracts.

As a child during Zukra mahadasha, Welch (who later became an inspirational and commanding speaker) was plagued by a stutter. 2nd-from-Chandra = nichha-Zukra. Yogakaraka will later bring benefits.

Stoic Shani rules emotionally conflicted Makara 6th-from-Chandra + relationship-harmonizing 7th-from-Chandra

General Electric CEO 1935-2020 Jack Welch was too rational and scientifically complex in his early group communication style. JW had to amplify and excite his style of making announcements, develop teams, and learn how to run a business meeting.

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

  • Purva-azadha (relationships, finance) * Rahu-Dhanuzya * shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of generous patronage * extraordinary theory * extravagant preaching * unorthodox approach to higher truth * mask of global humanism * fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous proselytism * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of philosophical belief * seeks privilege via guru-roles

  • Ketu in classroom-5 ambivalent toward ceremony * eccentric offspring * wandering eldest child * demonstrates dramatic confidence in non-existent things * apathetic toward political displays * ungrounded speculation * disregards standard intelligence * disoriented creativity * incoherent romantic ideals * disinterested in games * liberation via surrender of entitlements * unless other graha in 5 or Ketu's ruler is strong, may prefer to live free from children


Welch was famously disinterested in his children. It was reported that he returned home so rarely from corporate life that his kids asked their mother, "Who is that guy?"

Also, bandhesha-4 Zukra-nichha occupies bhava-8, suggesting home-roots often dislodged by the ongoing cycles of identity-change (8).

commentary on Madhya Vayasi Dhana Yoga

"A perusal of astrological literature bearing up ''Wealth' reveals clearly that in order to become rich,

  • one should have in his horoscope combinations which comprehend a point of contact between lords of Lagna, 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th.

Permutations and combinations of these lords give rise to A stupendous number of Dhana Yogas "
