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 Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

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

For those born into the Zukra-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

Zukra-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 Zukra 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 Zukra-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 Zukra 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 rules-6 = 12th-from-Surya.

Surya in bhava-7 = paternal identity with opportunistic (Rahu) contracts and world travel (7)

Rulers of 1 + 4 + 9 + Rahu the Amplifier occupy bhava-7 relationships

Chandra receives incoming drishti from both Rahu-Kanya-7 ++ Shani-nichha-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 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.

Public facade of the Alliance

  • Mangala-Kanya
  • yuti Rahu-Kanya
  • yuti Surya-Kanya
  • complex first marriage afflicted by Surya rogesha in 7
  • Budha yuvati-pati in 8
  • combust mangala-7
  • boundary-challenging behaviors of Rahu-7


  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono

  • bhava-12 Kumbha
  • concerned with private spaces
  • famed Spring-1969 Bed-In conducted in hotels
  • 12 = hailing from a foreign land (Japan) relative to one' English birth.

Public facade of the Alliance

  • Shani-Meza * nichha
  • 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 nichha-Shani

Zukra + Surya = navamsha

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

Zukra 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.

Budha-8 governs the childhood home, including the foundational schooling and mother's folk.

Rulers of 1, 11, 12, and 10, receiving drishti of Rahu-7. A complex and often aggrieved (nichha-Shani) pattern of speech and song.

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

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

Zukra 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. 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)

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.

Nichha-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 nichha-Shani-2.

Challenges in the family of origin (2) and indeed in the brain itself due to nichha-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.

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.

Feminine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu * Slaviztha * Avittam * Hrsikesha

BPL commentary

For Dhaniztha births of a feminine 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 ladies endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These women are athletic, goal-oriented, and competitive. Those who have chosen a feminine-form birth may find themselves surrounded by invigorating but dominating masculine figures. Male colleagues may be surprised to discover that despite their feminine style, Dhaniztha ladies are equal and serious competitors. Their sexual energies are alive, and may be used to advantage.

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 movement. They thrive where the beat of the war-drums is deep and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniztha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniztha ladies choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and men.

In the modern era, Dhaniztha ladies may use Mangala's kinetic energies to ascend the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani,. They strive for alpha-dominant positions. All fields of competitive endeavor are open to the Avittam-born, including athletics and contests. Often preferring applied scientific careers with measurable outcomes, Dhaniztha-born are also found in all types of systematic intervention into their environment, such as social engineering, political engineering, or materials engineering.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, feminine Vasu champions are often surrounded by lawful, systematic, and timid folk who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascending drive. They are often respected in the boss role due to Kuja's ability to dominate the field of activity while keeping the respect of their male peers.

Vasu-born ladies face particular challenges in Kuja's aggressive, male-dominated environments. Their career pathway is studded with rough dominators using physical force and even brutality. Yet, a well-placed, vigorous Mangala, along with Shani's natural lawful patience, can bring Dhaniztha women to the peak of social recognition and economic achievement.

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 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


Themes of conquest, pursuit, and achievement may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha
