Graha are spaced in such a way that no graha occupies the 12th from any other. This single auspice protects the vitality in an orchestrated way. Graha in the 12th-from position usually drain the life force from those in the relative 2nd-from itself, but luckily in de Gaulle's nativity there is no Vimshottari bhukti in which the bhukti-pati occupies the 12th from its overlord.

Masculine Nativities


Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

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, s iblings, 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.

Penetrating Communications

[Budha] -ruled Jyeṣtha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and energetic 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. Jyestha 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 ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

Guru activates 2 = 10th-from-Chandra = spoken word

  • CDG's executive commands were suddenly obeyed by many who once dismissed his ideas as frivolous.

  • Although he remained a controversial figure, CDG attained an enduring presidency of France. Upon his death, CDG was hailed internationally as a great hero [5] of the times.

[Guru in bhava-3] + Mangala * military science publications

  • With diagrams and explanations, his publications vigorously recommended modernizations.

rules 4-nationalism, patriotism, home ++ 3-communications

Stoic Shani activates Kumbha Svamsha = science, economics, marketplace linkages, social networks, communities, connections

Politically intelligent and organized == but tense, rigid, and often overpowered Shani-10 Simha ++ Surya-1 Vṛścika =

obligation to deal with self-referential, spoiled, inflexible, my-way-or-the-highway political players

  • 17-Jun-1940 arrives in London at Churchill's invitation [command] as a refugee from Vichy France. Immediately begins a series of radio broadcasts to French listeners * Surya-Shani bhukti * Shani-10 leadership rules 3 = radio addresses, narrative , announcements, planning ++ dvithiya Sade-Sati

Shani occupies 10 in both D-1 and D-9, suggesting

  • a permanent narrative of leadership
  • responsibility often exceeding authority

Woes of personality and governance duties

Whatever CdG might do to champion the cause of France during the catastrophic days of near-capitulation during WW-2, CdG would have been criticized and harassed by the politicians.

[Shani-Simha] -10 confers a uniquely difficult environment in which Surya's radiant self-confidence, self-centeredness, royalty, creativity, and drama [Simha] afflict the zero-exceptions process of lawful, orderly governance [Shani] .

Furthermore, similar to many nativities featuring a Mangala-harasser drishti to Shani, General Militaire CdG endured [Shani] lifelong tension between his push to championship [Kuja] versus the stark realities [Shani] of a self-important, self-referential, self-dramatizing caste of flamboyant governance agents

Shani in Bhava-10 occupies [6th-from-Chandra] ++ 8th-from-Mangala = leadership-destructive characteristics * made aggressive by drishti incoming into Shani-10 from [uchcha] Kuja-3 + Guru = many, often overblown declarations

France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle displayed the classic Shani-Simha bundle of contradictions during WorldWar-2.

  • CDG believed in the sovereignty of France [Simha] but he was obliged to accept the harsh reality [Shani] of the VIchy-Nazi government.
  • Winston Churchill remarked that as desperate for support as CdG should have been in this situation, in fact CDG insulted and alienated nearly everyone who could have been of help to him [also Budha-yuti-Ketu] ..
  • Shani-Simha in [6th-from-Chandra] -5 politics caused CDG's political adversaries to label him as a bully and a hypocrite. .


rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]


[ethno-rhythmic Rohini-4]

  • [Rahu-Urisha] shimmering illusion of storage * craving for preserved collections * unorthodox banking * over-reaching acquisitions * preposterous accumulations * mesmerizing treasure-hoards * fabulous inventories * exotic food stores * amazing ship-holds * fascinating warehouses * mask of historic conservatism * intriguing acts of barreling * exaggerated cooperage * extravagant containment * tantalizing libraries * marvelous hoards of valuables * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of accrued wealth * entrancing lineage knowledge * thrilling speech-song * excitement of pricing * seeks privilege via value-keeper roles
  • [Rahu in bhava-7] passion for prestige alliance * in svabhava of Suave Shukra, the Shadowy Specter seeks opportunistic arrangements * strategic use of the law-courts * expediently amplified bargains * extraordinary relationships * extravagant promises * outsider who cleverly insinuates into partnerships * astounding advisors * unorthodox negotiations * marvellous match-making * thrilling surge of brokered agreement * non-standard pacts * surprisingly advantageous loop-holes * exaggerated equity * unusual exchange valuation * sweet mirage of fair treatment * enthralling mixed-culture treaties * may pose as an impartial counselor * disguised as a deal-maker * mesmerizing diplomacy * appears as a pleasant advocate * social mobility sought via convenient contracts


Powerful, preposterous partnerships

ttama-Rahu-Urisha-7 with CdG's ambitious career as a French military and civil leader was built on partnerships with powerful outsiders [7] .

Rahu in 4th-from-4th = passionately patriotic yet Rahu the Outside is often not grounded in local rhythms. CdG's fame arose in exotic non-local surroundings = London from where he made legendary radio broadcasts + North Africa government in exile [unorthodox pretender Rahu] .

+++ navamsha Rahu-Karkata-6 [patriotic war]

Rahu Mahadasha * age 75.5 until decease age 79 = 1960-1970

Rahu mahadasha brought anti-capitalist riots to metropolitan France.

Despite CDG's gnarly personality and discomfort with expressions of gratitude,

  • High-placed [7 = 10th-from-10th]
  • strong but surreptitious
  • entreasured, asset-bearing partners bring advocacy and counsel

Mutual drishti between Rahu-Urisha [uchcha] 7 +++ Guru-Makara-Draco * [nīcha] 3

Shani in Bhava-10 casts 10th drishti into Rahu in bhava-7

  • Shani bandesha is a localist who is trying to constrain and limit the effect of the super-partners.

For example, as WW-2 was ending, CDG bitterly resisted the AMGOT proposal to have Allied military leaders serve as post-war governors of France.

  • Although CDG would claim in his autobiography to have been the preventing agent who blocked AMGOT, the record shows that Allied Partner POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower made the ultimate judgment call to keep France's chaotic post-Vichy leaders in place.

Although CDG's insistence on French sovereignty [Simha] was lawful, Rahu-Urisha is clearly much stronger than Shani-Simha,

powerful navamsha Rahu-Karkata-6 [war] along with radical Rahu-Urisha-7 in 4th-from-4th,

  • suggesting a deeply embedded military ambition to provide protection, defense of the homeland and its culture .

  • Yet CDG was not completely enamored of that home culture, especially its aristocratic elitism, per radical Shani-Simha-10..

[uchcha] Rahu-7 is weakened by a strictly structured drishti from Shani in Bhava-10, suggesting that the effectiveness of CDG's expedient Rahu-Alliances was significantly reduced by Shani-Simha's lawfulness + anti-exceptionalism.

  • Typically of Rahu's rise-and-fall patterns, CdG's relationship to his much-more-empowered allies very much fluctuated.

  • Yet despite his contempt for politicians and his tendency to bite the partnering hands that fed him, Shani's drishti into 12 + 4 + 7 tended to return CDG into top commanding roles again and again.

[Rahu in bhava-7] exerts a wide scope of influence via drishti upon 6 graha:

  1. [nīcha] Guru-3
  2. [uchcha] Kuja-3
  3. Ketu-1
  4. Shukra-1
  5. Budha-1
  6. Surya-1

Radical [uchcha] Rahu accepts drishti from

  1. Shukra-1
  2. Budha-1
  3. Surya-1
  4. [nīcha] Guru-3
