Pūrvāṣāḍhā * Apah
For Pūrvāṣāḍhā 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.
Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.
Inspirational diplomatic grace
Pūrvāṣāḍhā are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically, apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Male births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Shukra vs. Guru.
In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.
Like all Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Shukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.
Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Apah
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86
"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .
One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.
Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.
He vainly considers himself above his station in life
Jerry Garcia in 1984, age 42

CAREER - SHANI
Like most people with Shani in Bhava-6 , Garcia struggled with a variety of chronic [Shani] health conditions (6) beginning early in life.
Shani in Bhava-6 rules 3-Kumbha = communications roles within mass gatherings, social-participation movements.
Stoic Shani activates the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically fruitful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra = fans, community, social networks
Shani occupies 6th radical bhava. The fans distinctively did not want to hear new creative material (Shani resists change).
bhratru-pati-3 touring Shani-6 = illness and addiction related to touring
any papagraha in bhava-6 can be beneficial.
JG began self-medicating at age 15 and continued until his death age 53. Among numerous other health challenges, he was also a diabetic heroin addict.
Shani in Bhava-6 ++ Shani activates Ketu-3 ++Shani casts drishti upon 3 ++ Shani occupies the emotionally motivated evangelical communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra.
Shani's ruler Shukra ++ Shukra activates the musical but drug-prone Pūrvāṣāḍhā lagna, adding a durokaraka Shani-guna of endurance to JG's musical performance career.
Garcia developed a traveling musical band (3) which toured (Ketu-3) constantly for decades [Shani], rarely altering the performance routine (Shani prevents change). He toured with a musical band of friends (11) for 30 years, many times expressing exhaustion but always, usually for reasons of indebtedness (Shani-6) returning to this work.
Although an iconic figure, he was never the sole center of the Grateful Dead and other bands. Garcia with the home-and-routine needy Karkata-Surya-8 was never inclined toward the singular focus royalty-celebrity lifestyle often feigned by popular stage performers. Shani's ruler Shukra-yuti-Guru and Guru casts dirshti into 11-1-3. The ensemble (3) toured in a drug-fueled environment which also defined their musical performances.
