Yoni * Bhagadaivata * Prakphalguni * Arjuni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani-Yamya, Purvaphalguni-Yoni, or Pūrvāṣāḍhāmay find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companions.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Shukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Shukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Shukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 83

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports

  • reveling in the joy of mere action,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Dad = a merchant seaman. Kanya-Surya in bhava-7 occupies 4th-from-4th transport, shipping.

Dad worked as a shipboard laborer for most of his adult life Surya-Kanya labor. Dad associated with a great diversity of persons of many backgrounds [Rahu] and his associates (7) were members of the service class Surya-yuti-Rahu Kanya. Dad traveled extensively to distant lands within the humble maritime service role. Surya activates -6 = 12th-from-Surya.

Chandra receives incoming drishti from both Rahu-Kanya-7 ++ Shani-[nīcha] 2.

JL's mother Julia Lennon was reckoned as a friendly (11) person. She came under pressure of raising her children from various fathers, service work (Kanya drishti) in various bars and restaurants, and perhaps an underlying mental health condition which could be indicated by the harsh drishti incoming to the soothing, routine-seeking Chandra-11 via both Shani and Rahu. She was killed (her age 44) by a constable who claimed he was not responsible because he was an inexperienced driver (see bhava-7 Kanya irregular argumentation). He was fully acquitted; young Lennon (age 15) reckoned his mother's death as the definitive trauma of his life.


MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

John Lennon was married twice, in addition to a significant extramarital union.


  • bhava-5 Karkata
  • ruler Chandra
  • The first marriage partner would be a culturally familiar personality with a parental orientation. They married to legalize their parent-status due to a pregnancy.

  • Shani-Mesha [nīcha]
  • yuti lagnesha Guru
  • Yoko's Chandra matches JWL's 10th amsha in both D-1 and D-9
  • second marriage partner = very high visibility
  • emotionally the second life-partner would be somewhat dreamlike (12)
  • element of toxic blaming due to 12 ruler [nīcha] Shani

Shukra + Surya = navamsha

Typically in a husbandly-companion nativity, when Shukra has no companion graha there is only one marriage. However, Shukra joins Surya in navamsha showing the intention for two alliances. Navamsha reveals the underlying expectations.

Shukra located the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra suggests that women in general provide an emotionally identity-transforming influence.

Upheavals and sudden, unexpected changes in both marriage and peer relationships would be expected.

randhresha-8 = Shukra in bhava-6 * sarala yoga * hidden power from pleasurable service;

Shukra activates -3/8 for the Meena nativity, and Meena typically experience sudden unexpected challenges from those identified with the feminine gender

Shukra located in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra exacerbates the prognosis regarding women. JWL describes his boyhood as supported by five women, consisting of his mother and her sisters who all lived nearby. His young mom remained close but she had several children and she surrendered John into the nearby home of a childless aunt.

[Sarala Yoga] is protective against the dangers of disagreements, drugs and divorce, so that the potentially severe consequences both medical and legal of Lennon's extreme self-medication patterns did not harm him but were rather experiences as forces of identity transformation

Despite the multitude of talented partners, Shukra-6 indicates disagreement in matters of romance, creativity, music, finance, and terms of agreement. Shukra-6 usually indicates an attraction to women who are in some way identified with the victim narrative [story of being eaten] . The cluster of Kanya graha in bhava-7 adds several layers of intrigue to Lennon's relationship patterns.

Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

  • Bharani-Shani-Mesha [nīcha] * harsh old blood-feuds * brain cramp * blocked bloodflow * muscle seizure * limits innovation * overburdened aggressions * fierce resistance * freezes new ideas * law of the winners * proletarian battles * must enforce dominance * contempt for independence * burdened by championship * cruel competitions * endurance contests * at times, survival requires great effort * obligation to fight * normalizes war * structural pressure upon head-brain * lurching forward push * conquest brings oppressive duty * must sustain physical supremacy * constricted vitality * maintainer of bitter old competition-for-resources
  • 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
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * social resistance to generous expansions * slow elder teachers * pragmatic philosophy * limited scope of understanding * doctrinal discipline * constrained growth * conventionally regulated beliefs * optimism limited by resistant old structures * faith in the rule of law * class-hierarchical ideology


Shani generates a powerful dhanayoga = ruler of 11 occupies 2, and Vriddhi-pati-Shani yuti lagnesha-Guru

Nichha Shani-2 is ruled by Kuja in 6th-from-Shani.

[nīcha] Shani-2 would normally be an indicator of a highly dysfunctional family. Lennon's family history seems to exemplify the textbook definition of dysfunctionality, including children not being told of their various parents' deaths, a highly controlling maternal aunt, and family-members paying each other small monies for services (although this odd type of contractual exchange is mainly attributable to the Surya-Mangala-Rahu in Kanya-7 which indicates unusual contracts).

Childhood challenges included learning disabilities (Shani-Mesha drishti to Chandra- inter alia), school truancy, and regular outbursts of frustrated, sexualized anger resulting in spousal battery. Lennon famously admitted "I was a hitter. " Combust accusing Mangala-Kanya rules Shani and Kuja drishti to [nīcha] Shani-2.

Challenges in the family of origin (2) and indeed in the brain itself due to [nīcha] Shani but there are many compensations due to lagnesha-Guru-2. Although Lennon developed behavior problems, the primary-parenting aunt and uncle provided physical security for him until their deaths and wholeheartedly supported his musical education even when he was disruptive and difficult.

  • Rahu-Parthya * shimmering illusion of humility * craving for crime * mask of exploitive assistance * ambitious physicians * intriguing addictions * mirage of medication * fascinating injuries * over-reaching accusations * amazing illnesses * extraordinary arguments * may be obsessed with servants-and-servitude * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) conflict management * shrewd dealings in sickness * ingenious divorce * extravagant litigation * seeks privilege via victim-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-7 * passion for partnership * in svabhava of Suave Shukra, the Shadowy Specter seeks opportunistic arrangements * expedient use of the law-courts * amplified bargains * extraordinary relationships * extravagant promises * outsider who cleverly insinuates into pairing roles * desires important brokerage * unorthodox negotiations * fascinating match-making * thrilling unions * non-standard pacts * attorneys find loop-holes * irregular equity * exaggerated agreements * unusual exchange valuation * mirage of fairness * partnerships feature mixed race-class-creed-gender-age * may pose as the Perfect Partner * self-promoting deal-maker * mesmerizing diplomat * appears as a pleasant advocate * social mobility via instrumental alliances
  • Rahu-yuti-Surya * amplified ambition for center-stage roles * magnified confidence * passion for exotic display * trickster with dramatic flair * opportunistic father * creative pursuit of social mobility * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of exceptional intelligence * thrilling political genius * hypnotic charm * seeks privilege via bright celebrity * sparkling center of cross-cultural mixing
  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition * magnified championship * exotic pursuits * tricky innovation * opportunistic brother-warriors * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of dynamic energy * hypnotic attack * passion for engines * craves hot movement * invasive force of cross-cultural mixing

shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle from Shani-Mesha-2 toward the Kanya-7 cluster indicating partnerships

Complex and conflicted partnerships

Lennon was much influenced by his many partnerships. The public record documents an intimate friendship with Brian Epstein, the manager of the Beatles who arranged their early performance successes. Partner-songwriter Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney is acknowledged to have partially shaped Lennon's world. Partner-songwriter and financial manager Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono is another documented identity-defining ally.

  • Ketu in classroom-1 * eccentric expression of the fleshly container * oddly unique identity * ambivalent toward kinetic movement * incoherent embodiment * other-defined chameleon * surrenders individual completeness * identity depends upon Important Others (Rahu-7) * liberation via abdication of birthrights

The core identity of personalities which choose to be born with Ketu-1 is often defined by themes of surrender, abandonment, amputation, disconnection, and apathy. One may live in the certainty that, regardless of the opinion of others, one has been abandoned.

Feminine Nativities


Chotthi * Vayu * Nishtya

BPL commentary

For Svatika births of a feminine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .

For those born into the paradigm of Nishthya, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus. Their purpose is to broker agreements and balance the interests of multiple ambitious stakeholders.

Social justice, personal power

Rahu-ruled Svatika ladies tend to be fascinating figures. By skillfully mixing and trading with different folks, Svatika ladies build exotic exchange relationships. They are often found in policy organizations and government agencies, where their social equity work is distinctively multi-cultural. Their roles include trader, exchanger, negotiator, deal-maker, broker, marriage-matcher, alliance-designer, and other balancing activities that engage two mismatched sides within one functional agreement.

Svatika represents Rahu's desire to amplify Shukra's quest for harmonious agreements. Rahu challenges cultural boundaries. The mix-master may skillfully combine unusual agents and mismatched agendas in order to obtain a rebalanced status. Similar to Sadachbia, the Svatika-born are mixed-system orchestrators who may take direction from Otherworldly sources. The character of Rahu is determinative.

Due to their Rahu-gifted ability to think outside the box, Svatika-born may realize previously unthinkable opportunities for diplomacy and fair exchange. Their success is noted in negotiation, trade-deals, and bargaining in commodities, ideas, or services.

In politics, Nishthya ladies may be associated with social, ideological, financial, or physical integration of previously hostile or excluded participants. Vayu-born graciously mix people and environments that were once segregated, gracefully pairing various ethnicities, religions, nations, or individuals of differing practice.

Their primary pursuit of a social justice agenda is not entirely idealistic. It is ultimately motivated by their desire to obtain privilege by facilitating partnerships to enhance opportunities for trade and exchange.

Themes of opportunity, fascination with appearances, and acquisition of privilege may contextualize Svatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Svatika-Chandra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 97
