Rockabilly Cultural Icon
dematerialization 16-August-1977 (age 42)
eulogy for Elvis Presley, delivered by POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter
"Elvis Presley's death deprives our country of a part of itself.
He was unique and irreplaceable. More than 20 years ago, he burst upon the scene with an impact that was unprecedented and will probably never be equaled.
His music and his personality, fusing the styles of white country and black rhythm and blues, permanently changed the face of American popular culture.
His following was immense, and he was a symbol to people the world over of the vitality, rebelliousness, and good humor of his country."

Jyeṣtha-Antares * Kita * Thrikketta
For Jyeṣtha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.
Budha-ruled Jyeṣtha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.
Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.
Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatra-pati Budha, often Jyeṣtha-born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power. In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.
Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeṣtha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeṣtha-Antares
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85
"A dark and sensitive nature ...
On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,
Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,
Teenaged Elvis in 1950's, before his manager convinced EP to wear black hair dye
"American pop singer, one of the most famous entertainers in modern history whose notoriety became worldwide. With a carnal sneer and a Memphis bop-suit, he swiveled across the stage on hot-wired legs.
He had 107 top-40 hits (more than twice the total of the Beatles) and 41 gold LPs, the most successful recording artist ever .
EP's persona touched billions of fans, and years after his death, he is still an icon with a huge following. His records continue to sell at a $7 million-per-year clip, his
33 films still spin off the racks of video stores, and some 150 licensed products bearing his name or image account for $50 million in retail sales annually. His fans still visit his Memphis home, Graceland."
quoted verbatim from
Elvis and Religious Music
EP served as a powerful icon of American social change by integrating into a single dynamic personal music-and-dance style,
the historic African rhythms of southern American
blacks with the Appalachian rhythms of southern Bible-Belt whites.
As well, EP conjoined the
sacred and secular music strands of rural Christian culture
(Ketu-9 disregard for doctrinal boundaries). His music set a cultural precedent for the USA Civil Rights movement
which was soon to be spearheaded by USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Dad = a struggling young sharecropper. Dad spent 18 months in prison during EP's childhood
EP's Dharmesha-9 Chandra activates Ketu-9 but Chandra occupies 6/8 from pitristhana = father.
As EP's commercial success expanded, Dad became road manager of EP's entertainment entourage. Pitrikaraka Surya karmesha ++ Surya yuti Vriddhi-pati Budha = Dad's engagement with EP's career (10) and EP's earnings (11)
Ketu-9 suggests a distancing behavior which causes Dad to wander.
Parents as a Team
The parents would appear to have been troubled by harsh conditions in their own childhoods, insufficient resources in the home, and fear of social criticism (Shani-yuti-Chandra). Yet Surya-and-Chandra occupy a relative 3-11 angle, suggesting that they were friendly toward each other, cooperative on shared projects (3), and grounded deeply into their local speech values (Surya-2) and agricultural routines including worship (Chandra-4).
CAREER - SURYA
Surya-Pūrvāṣāḍhā = music-entertainment, often with a sacred, doctrinal element
karmesha-10 Surya-2 brought the public eye into bhava-2 music, singing, face, voice
Karakamsha = bhava-2 singing .
Dhanasthana contains the musically entertaining charisma + center-stage dynamism Dhanus-Pūrvāṣāḍhā Surya +++ the somewhat doctrinal and mystical messaging of Uttarāṣāḍha-Dhanus Budha (8-11).
2 = speech, song, face, teeth-jaw, hair, money, food stores, hoards of all kinds, family history, historical cultural values of one's people. Elvis was famous for all of these attributes. Vriddhi-pati-11 Budha-2 yuti karmesha-10 Surya is a substantial Dhanayoga which became activated during his Guru-Budha bhukti age 19
Mom = garment factory worker, home-maker, church member
Soma is deeply oppressed by Shani in childhood home = bhava-4
Chandra occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle from both Ketu-9 (father) and Mangala-11 (Elvis) suggesting that the mother was not always in alignment with her son's father or her son
Mother = generally holds a conventional doctrinal belief paradigm = customary Chandra = Dharmesha-9
Mother would have had an absentee father or father is incoherent or ill, Ketu-9 occupies 6th-from-Chandra ruled by Chandra. Likely both of mother's parents somewhat afflicted by poverty and illness.
Emotions, Childhood and Vehicles
Chandra ruled by Rahu, receiving Parashari drishti of Guru-12. Expansive blessings of homes and vehicles. Elvis was known for his mansion, luxury cars, and private aircraft.
Eccentric but not intellectually activated
Chandra in Sadachbia-Varuna * calmed by mixed networks * protectors of universal mingling * soothed by risky marketplaces * needs to make expedient social connections * indicates one who is scientific and intuitive and often in connection with extraterrestrial intelligences, albeit the awareness may be socially oppressed. Elvis was famed for his occult interests but also for his perceived inability to ask for the information he sought, except by passively absorbing easy-reader books for the popular market.
MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Although EP had shared a home with PBP since PBP's age 15, EP had no stated intention to marry (being involved with numerous other partners), Nevertheless, Shani-Shani svabhukti +++ dvithiya Sade-Sati enforced a legal marriage in 1967.
According to biographers, music manage-promoter Colonel Tom Parker issued the command for a marriage ceremony to be undertaken for purpose of meeting public expectations. The blessed event was arranged in rented function-room of a casino hotel, attended primarily by invited members of the newspaper, magazine, and television press.
7th-from-Chandra-4 = karmabhava-10. Conventional, socially beholden 10 receives drishti of Shani-Chandra-Rahu, suggesting the instrumental (Rahu-3-publicity) and obligatory [Shani] and customary [Chandra] nature of the alliance avowal.
Interpersonal compatibility and friendship * EP + PBP
Both partners' radical Chandra placements occupy Rahu-ruled nakshatra = substantial mutual understanding and friendship
Still, Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * produces guilt in regard to behavior that is apprehended as obligatory or required. According to the autobiographical writings of Graceland 1945- drama-homeware Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, the sexual intimacy of the union ceased within a few months of the ceremony.
Chandra-Kumbha rules the indebted, adversarial, contentious, conflicted, remedy-seeking, medical, military, polluted, unbalanced, contract-breaking, disappointing, ministry-of-service 6th-from-Chandra . For this reason, Chandra-Kumbha can be associated generally with indebtedness whether financial, emotional, or general cultural guilt
nishturabashi yoga tends to show a pattern of guilt regarding the parents, particularly the mother, toward maintaining the routines of the ethnicity, toward the ancestral rhythms and habits. One may feel required to offer protection and security to others but the sense of obligation feels restrictive and often leads to emotional distress
Chandra-4 almost invariably builds its base close to the cultural roots. Although a nationally recognized entertainer in the popular music and cinema industry, EP did not shift his home-base to Los Angeles or New York as was usually done.
EP stayed in his southern-roots regional hub, Memphis TN.
Personal habits, Emotional Isolation, Self-Protection
Eccentric Chandra in Sadachbia-Varuna compounded by Shani
BPL note: Shani-4 or Shani drishti into 4 may result in nightworker jobs.
Mangala in bhava-11 activates 1-physical body ++ 6-addictions, exploitation, divorce
Kuja-11 provides empowered action in economically profitable roles actively engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social-participation (11)
Mangala-movement = ruled by karmesha-10 atmakaraka Budha communications-messaging.
Rahu in bhava-3 opportunistic drishti to Mangala-11 amplifies the themes of thrilling movement, large groups,
Mangala-Kanya emphasizes the appeal to the exploited classes.
rogesha-6 Mangala = a sexualizer which framed EP's reputation as a hip-swinging provocateur.(Rahu thrilling provocation)
Although wildly popular with younger generations during his heyday, EP's behavior was deemed criminal (6) by the punitive judgment of the older generation of cultural-guardian southern folk.
Strictly Sober Shani (elder, rigid) is typically threatened by Mangala (younger, movement). Furthermore, Shani occupies 6th-from-Kuja.
Mangala Sexual behavior occupies 6/8 from Chandra emotional stability, needs
BPL commentary: the childlike younger-partner-attraction phenomenon is often linked to drug-alcohol abuse, as the native stops maturing emotionally when the substance misuse begins.
By this measure, Elvis' drug addiction can be traced to his Shani opposition aged 14 during Rahu-Mangala bhukti where Mangala rogesha-6 indicates addictions and which would have exacerbated his Nishturabashi yoga feelings of emotional isolation and resistance to maternal nurturing. Guru-drishti into Kumbha helps to neutralize the poverty and parochialism of Chandra-Shani-4 but does not alleviate the emotional isolation.
[Atmakaraka] writing, event-planning, tours, scheduling, communication, cinema
Budha activates the communicative Jyeṣtha radical lagna
CAREER - BUDHA
randhresha-8 atmakaraka Budha-yuti-Surya suggests the hidden, writhing, cataclysmic power of the message.
Guru Mahadasha * age 14 until age 30
Generous Guru activates 2-music, voice, face +++ 5 entertainment, artistic creativity, romance, fun
EP began recording music in Nashville during his 19th year, Guru-Budha bhukti. His success in sales of musical recordings, cinema acting, and live performance touring remained spectacularly high during most of Guru Mahadasha.
EP's gyrating, low-moaning songs filled a fantasy role for many romantic fans. EP's lyrics often referred to bedroom delights, dreams, and private pleasures. Guru in bhava-12 ruled by Rahu-yuti-Shukra in publications-3
Shukra-Makara-Draco +++Rahu = handsome bone structure [Shukra] + risky relationships [Rahu]
Shukra yuvati-pati-7 and ruler-of-12 distant lands * met PBP wife in a distant land (12, Germany)
wifely-companion was originally EP's underage (14 yr old) schoolgirl lover. EP was a promiscuous man who favored much-younger girls and short-term liaisons * Shukra-yuti-Rahu. EP's primary attachment had been to his chronically ill and emotionally turbulent mother. Following her decease, he sought no replacement nishturabashi yoga.
EP was essentially forced by his boss to marry the beautiful young Priscilla Beaulieu for reasons of social decorum and to generate publicity. He was 32 and she was 22.
According to PBP, their sexual relationship ended after she became a mother (Elvis was interested only in girls). PBP developed a successful, long-lasting career in drama and fashion as indicated by EP' 7th-from-Chandra-4 Kumbha = Simha entertainments.
Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)
Shani Mahadasha saw a gradual decline in EP's once-super-celebrity.
EP's his married-with-child status which began during Shani-Shani svabhukti inhibited the dreamy fantasy attractions which had been so powerful during Mahadasha of Guru-12.
The excitement of EP's race-mixing regional American style lost its provocative vigor (Shani lost energy) as the new trending international rhythms-and-themes of Beatles et al overtook the younger generations.
After ten years of fighting the exhaustion of constant touring, divorce, and over-management [Shani] rules 3-management , EP's charm was waning. According to the birth time from the Tupelo public records birth certificate, decease Shani-Chandra bhukti.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
The Master Manipulator during EP's entire career was "The Colonel"
A tightly controlling music promoter who was operating under various aliases, Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk (a.k.a. Parker) was a Dutch national running from polarizing conflict in his homeland. Surya-yuti-Budha randhresha-8 identity obscuration. The military title was insinuated from a non-existent militia which was itself a political fabrication of a politician. Rahu insinuation.
Rahu-yuti-Shukra * amplifies music, beauty, women, treasuries
Rahu dramatically amplifies Shukra-Makara-Draco ruler of 7-contracts ++ 12-clandestine arrangements, hotels, undercover operations
The Colonel = reckoned to have siphoned a considerable portion of EP's creative-performance income, via both legal contracts (7) and shady dealings (12).
Exciting, culturally transformative =.Voice-Face-Song
Rahu-yuti-Shukra gives strongest amplification to handsome Makara Shukra. barrier-bending, taboo-twisting Rahu produces the "sweet marriage" and "bedroom fantasy" effect which made young girls swoon over Elvis during his performances and when listening to his recordings.
Rahu in bhava-3 provocative love songs, thrilling lyrics Shukra song-writing
Shukra-yuti-Rahu share Uttarāṣāḍha-Makara within one degree (although in different pada)
Music, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting , and Relationships with Women
Shukra-yuti-Rahu within one degree, in Uttarāṣāḍha-3-4 suggest compelling artistic ability for breaking racial boundary taboo via music and dance
Mix and Mottle * Fascinating, Boundary-Blurring Rahu + Sultry Shukra
EP's religious hymn singing and his (more dominant) secular musical gyrations poignantly mixed the historic African rhythms of the black south with the white-folk ballads of the European immigrants.
EP's rockabilly style was either adored or abhorred, His charisma was so powerful that everyone responded to him in some way.EP is considered sociologically to have been a cultural ice-breaker and artistic predecessor of the sentiments which created Civil Rights for all races and Women's Rights.
Commentators opined that with his throaty, moaning voice and swinging hips reminiscent of women's dancing, Elvis also helped to feminize the stiff, masculine, unyielding style of singing-and-dancing so characteristic of self-righteous American bourgeoisie in his day.
Elvis recorded considerable amounts of devotional Christian folk music. Yet much of his on-stage performance was overtly unorthodox [Rahu] and flew in the face of conventional race-class-gender morality.
At a private level, it is said that he was sexually promiscuous to a remarkable degree - before, during, and after marriage and that he favored much younger partners.
Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
Chandra-4 rules Ketu in classroom-9
EP professed a deeply personal religiosity imbued in him (he said) by his mother. Chandra dharma-pati but Ketu-9 also, and Chandra occupies 8th-from-9th.
Ketu occupies emotionally sourced ailments-addictions = 6th-from-Chandra
"EP's mother suffered from depression and took medications for this and for her weight problem. As a young man he started to take his mother's diet pills and antidepressants." quoted from www.astro.com/astro-databank/Presley,_Elvis
