Human Culture

Seen from a distance, human cultures look rather like bacterial cultures in a petri dish.

Human ethnic settlements are small gatherings of similar life forms which inhabit an established Base. Given a hospitable environment with the proper temperature, moisture, and nutrient, animated life forms naturally proliferate.

Often intensively developed, often crowded and survival-competitive, often gloriously fertile, these cultures reproduce until they have consumed all available nutrient.

However, when the nutrient supply is exhausted, the colony dies out -- just as suddenly as it appeared.

uchcha = top conditions

Karaka of great fortune due to abundant nutrient [Old Pathways Karkata] to supply the growth of one's ethnic culture, its values. its moral folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms , its earthly foundations.

In kendra, may be a great leader who lays a broad foundation for expansion of a human ethnic culture.

Even in dusthamsha (6-8-12) where Guru attracts many ailments and enemies, one may still be greatly successful in bringing forward the expansive improvements needed for a civilization to advance. Like all things supervised by Shri Guru, the matters of bhava-6 including animosity, conflict, accusation, and ailment are Typically, abundant.

The experience of bringing wisdom into a Budha-ized environment that characteristically lacks the breadth of awareness necessary to properly utilize this expansive wisdom can be very frustrating. The biochemical by-products of managing the constant remediation of conflict can take their toll on the fleshbody's own internal alignments, and disease conditions prosper.

Yet, however, much the native suffers (6) through this experience, brihaspati will succeed in expanding the consciousness of those who were ready to expand their reach into awareness of the realities of the three worlds.

Guru-Karkata guides the expansion of territory and amount of nutrient controlled by a cultural people.

Typically, there is a period of reactive contraction after this era of expansive wisdom-guided growth

  • Way to Wealth 1706-1790 printer ambassador Benjamin Franklin [political-gaming Pushya-1] (3) = helped to lay the commercial (5) foundations for the huge growth of European cultural settlement in USA. Period of reactive contraction = Declaration of Independence 1776 until end USA Civil War 1876.

  • Iran-Shah 1919-1980 Aryamehr M. Reza Pahlavi= laid foundation for the re-expansion of ancient Indo-European cultural rhythms in modern Iran. Period of reactive contraction = orthodox backlash of priestly authority, 1979-present.

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner [guiding-visionary Aslesa-4] [Hamsha Yoga] laid the foundation (7 = 4th from 4th) for the re-expansion of ancient Indo-European cultural rhythms (organic farming, musical intuition) in the European diaspora. The Nazi backlash harassed, intimidated and ultimately exhausted him.

Guru-karkata = inclusive, generous, optimistic, globally minded person who nevertheless has deep roots in one's own culture.

Past-life carry-forward wisdom about nurturing, caretaking, parenting, protecting, and sheltering others.

Naturally patriotic and parental, yet not parochial. [uchcha] Guru in any bhava brings extraordinary abundance in matters of the bhava. Of course too much of a good thing can also bring inflation, swelling, bloating, boasting, and over-proliferation Yet, in the human mind typically more is better, and most people find substantial contentedness in situations characterized by material, emotional, or spiritual abundance. Regardless of the operations of the occupied bhava, the fertility and abundance provided by [uchcha] Guru improves nearly any situation.

It is said of that Guru in kendra may compensate for many other deficiencies. More so the [uchcha] Guru.

Guru-Karkata recovers easily from damage to the public reputation (10) and other shaming-scandal. After any period of public polarizing catalysis , Guru-10 or Guru-7 (10th-from-10th) remains well-liked and respected

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 lyrical poet Rabindranath Tagore [networking-friendly Aśleṣa-3] [Atmakaraka] [Chandra-8 parivartamsha Guru-12-uchcha]

  • Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner [imaginative Aśleṣa-4] [Hamsha Yoga] (7) was blacklisted by the Nazi regime but he retained the trust of his international [Guru] audience

  • Despite an enduring lpublic suspicion that he intentionally drove his car off a bridge in order to drown his young female campaign-aide passenger, USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy never lost an election from 1962 until 2009

  • Principia Mathematica 1872-1970 philosopher Bertrand Russell [political-gaming Pushya-1] [8, evolutionary thrust] Despite having been terminated from a teaching position in New York City because the pious mother of a potential student perceived his out-of-class conduct to be licentious, the British philosopher-activist quickly rebounded with a better teaching job and a torrent of brilliant books. BR was hired-and-fired from several universities [Guru]. Each cycle of reputation-expanding job turbulence produced a more visible, respected profile of a teacher who acted compassionately (uchcha-Guru) as guided by philosophical principle.

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor [governing-regulatory Aśleṣa-2] [navamsha Guru-Makara-nicha] [Guru-12 mutual drishti Rahu-8]

  • Zanjeer 1942- drama-politics Amitabh Bachchan [routinized-defensive Punarvasu-4] [vargottamsha] has had ups-and-downs in public reputation during a decades-long career in politics and entertainment. He always bounces back after scandal to receive public embrace. Master of Self-Reinvention lagnesha Guru-8

Will help others whether the native is feeling personally happy or not. Believes in the wisdom of spiritual love, especially the love of children.

Wide scope of parental responsibility. Beautiful and generous breasts/chest in The earthen body . Great healer, abundantly tolerant, caring and parental in attitude.

Philanthropic nature.

Tends toward abundance of financial wealth . Welcoming, appreciative, inclusive. Yet may be patronizing (usually, inadvertently, as over-expansion of parental feelings) toward the little people. Behavior may tend toward a pattern of being manipulative and controlling when in Aśleṣa Nakshatra.

Much credit is available to the native in this life. If in kendra, or with the svakshetra Chandra, one becomes both materially and spiritually privileged.

Calling in the chips from good works in parallel lives .

Expansively charitable; protective; authentically caring. Will always support a friend in need. If dynamically energized by drishti of Kuja, can become overly aggressive in asserting material entitlement claims. Whether The financial wealth and privilege attending this position is smartly deployed or not, the native is generally a sincerely caring and compassionate personr.

Feminine nativity featuring Guru-Karkata seeks a (first) husband who is generous, inclusive, and parenting in nature.

This husband should have sincere desire to help heal shelter and protect along with abundance financial resources to do so.

He will function as a guide to those who seek shelter and those who want a broader connection to their folkways traditions.

He is deeply family oriented although he may indeed view the entire world as his extended family.


Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor [governing-regulatory Aśleṣa-2] [Guru-12 mutual drishti Rahu-8 ++ both Guru and Rahu drishti into nicha-Chandra-4]

  • ERT was married eight times, in full view of the public. She shared children with four of her spouses. She was an influential and effective philanthropist [Guru] serving those deeply in need of care [Karkata].
  • In matters of husband-making [Guru] ERT demonstrated a Rahu-Guru-Chandra trine = taboo-bending permission to expand her realm of emotional experience.
  • Guru's drishti into 4-6-8 naturally expands those domains, and Guru-12 randhresha grants a protective sarala yoga that limits impact of sudden identity changes.
  • Therefore, despite the social volatility [8] of her high-publicity marriage-and-divorce cycles, ERT enjoyed children and grandchildren in a multi-generational home - including her mother who lived to age-99. Chandra-4-nicha intake uchcha-Guru-12-drishti
