dematerialization 30-Jan-1948 [assassinated, age 78]
" Only God is truth. I am a human being. Truth for me is changing every day. My commitment must be to truth, not to consistency."
~~ Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi
" I believe that Gandhi's views were the most enlightened of all the political men of our time.
We should strive to do things in his spirit: not to use violence for fighting for our cause,
but by non-participation of anything you believe is evil."
~~Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein
|"It is alarming and also
nauseating to see Mr Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer, now posing as
a fakir of a type well known in the East, striding half-naked up the steps
of the Vice-regal palace....to parley on equal terms with the representative
of the King-Emperor."

For Viśākha births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting.r.
High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Viśākha nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.
[Tula - Vanika] pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Shukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities.
They are often found in advisor roles [Shukra] which engage overview, ideology, theory, first principles, or interpretive paradigm [Guru] . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.
Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Shukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Tula-Viśākha the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick [due to Guru activates 3-6] .
Vṛścika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs . Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.
Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Viśākha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Viśākha - Rādhā
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.  . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97r.
" ... Aggressiveness and impatience.
These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.
They are very active but not popular,
they are very proud
their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.
they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,
Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."
Mohandas Gandhi the Barrister in 1893

The communicative and active abilities of Budha and Mangala are guided by negotiating, adjusting, balanced, equable, justice-seeking Shukra. However, with all three of these skilled negotiators residing in bhava-12, most of the detailed bargaining work is conducted invisibly, behind-the-scenes.
Satygraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi was never afraid to say what needed to be said, and to whomever the message needed to be addressed, regardless of their rank or level of worldly power.
At birth, the bala [weight] of Gandhi's Shukra would have shown his family's Jyotisha-adviser that this child was destined for some role in negotiation of trade and judicial settlements. Also it would be clear that the child's path while bumpy at times [Shani-1 obstacles] would ultimately be a success for society. Gandhi's law practice [Shukra] failed commercially, but his life was a brilliant success for social justice causes around the world. The higher calling of Shukra = optimal: fairness for all parties

Satygraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi wore an iconic uniform of simplest homespun khadi. [Shani]. His physical appearance was bony, slender, and plain.
Shani-1 gave Gandhi a workhorse personality  . Shani induces a fear of scarcity wherever He resides. Typical of Shani-1 folk, Gandhi regularly practiced behaviors which ensured that He was right on the verge of exhausting his reserves of lifeforce physical energy and therefore dying. However despite all the dangers, all the hunger strikes, all the self-deprivation, and all the disease factors emitting from Guru-6, Gandhi lives until age 78 when he was assassinated by gunshot and died within 30 minutes
