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.

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman * Aryaman

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha - Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Rahu mahadasha brought anti-capitalist riots to metropolitan France.

France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle * uttama-Mangala-yuti-Guru-nichha * Many did not believe him (nichha-Guru) because his doctrine seemed (8) preposterous. Yet, from a camouflaged (8) position in London, CdG delivered famed radio communications (Kuja in 3rd-from-3rd radio) announcing the resurrection (8) of a non-existent sovereign French nation which had ceased to exist politically but which the public came to believe would be reborn (8) * via structured effort in warfare (uttama-Mangala).

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. Navamsha Shani in Bhava-10 gives the governance responsibility but Shani-Simbha gives a most rigid and resisting contempt for the entitlements of diva-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-harassing drishti to Shani, General CdG endured (Shani) lifelong tension between his push to championship (Kuja) versus the realities (Shani) of a self-important, self-referential, self-dramatizing caste of governance agents

Shani in Bhava-10 occupies 6th-from-Chandra ++ 8th-from-Mangala = self-destructive characteristics

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. UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 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 politcss caused CDG's political adversaries to label him as a bully and a hypocrite. .

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)

+++ navamsha Rahu-Karkata-6 (patriotic war)

  • Rahu-Urisha * uttama * 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

Despite CDG's gnarly personality and discomfort with expressions of gratitude, High-placed (7 = 10th-from-10th) * trong but surreptitious * entreasured, asset-bearing partners bring advocacy and counsel

Mutual drishti between Rahu-Urisha * uttama-7 +++ Guru-Makara - Draco * nichha-3

Shani's 10th drishti into Rahu in bhava-7 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,

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle had a 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.. Uttama-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. nichha-Guru-3
  2. uttama-Kuja-3
  3. Ketu-1
  4. Zukra-1
  5. Budha-1
  6. Surya-1

Radical uttama-Rahu accepts drishti from

  1. Zukra-1
  2. Budha-1
  3. Surya-1
  4. nichha-Guru-3
  5. Shani-10


Rahu in bhava-7-uttama reaches maturity = age 48 == the Magic-50 uplift in career

  • CDG was well-educated with a strong foundation for his profession (uttama-Mangala). He wrote important books in military science. Yet, CDG's military career was under-resourced, unsettled, and contentious until the passing of his 48th year.

  • Surya-Rahu bhukti in 1939 = Nazi invasion of Poland starting WW-2.

  • Approaching age 50, CDG's career truly began. the Nazi force was battering the French national infrastructure, and the rigid formalities of the old French military order had collapsed (Ketu). 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 of the times.

Ketu Mahadasha * age 19.4 until age 26.4 = 1910 until 1917

Mar-1916 until Nov-1918, CDG was immobilized in an officers' prison camp within the German territory. Despite five failed escape attempts (Ketu), CDG wrote an important book (during Ketu-Budha bhukti). CDG was literate in German. He read the German newspapers reporting war stories.
