Masculine Nativities


Ohibridna * Uttara-Proshtha-padas

BPL commentary

For Uttarabhadrapada births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic elderly durokaraka Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Uthratadhi, elder persons, old rules,rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Andromeda. Their purpose is multi-dimensional structural integrity and species resilience.

Responsible Charity

Meena - Antya pada 1-2-3-4 represents Shani's rulership of 11-systems ++ 12- distant worlds, imaginative vision. Guru and Shani are mutually neutral, suggesting that personality distortions are uncommon with Andromeda-born. Pada 1-2-3-4 have an extraordinary capacity to carry responsibility for others.

Uttara-bhadra born are often found in economic, ecological, community linkage, and networking roles which structurally engage invisible understandings, distant realms, interior visionary comprehension, and enduring patience.

Themes of maintaining continuity between systems, containment of inner understanding over time, and sustaining of proven profitable patterns may characterize Ahirbudhnaya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttarabhadra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 85

"... most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means ,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Generally, indicates serious challenges for the Father. Typically, the father meets an early end. Other outcomes may include that dad is a military-professional, dad has a markedly contentious personality, or dad demonstrates bullying behavior.


Career in military

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

atmakaraka = Chandra * patriotism, homeland, defensive security

  • Chandra-Dhanuzya * comforted by customary beliefs * settled into rhythmic received teachings * needs to feel wisely guided

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership expectations


  • marriage-1
  • bhava-4 plantations, properties, agriculture, parenting, seasonal rhythms, patriotism, defenses
  • Mithunaya messaging, information, commerce contains Ketu-Mithunaya
  • bhava-7 Kanya contains Guru-Kanya. Brihaspati grants GW's height-and-girth, along with a predisposition toward multiple partners (Guru the multiplier).

Chandra-10 is often a mark of the Two-Person Career

  • 10th-from-7th-from-Chandra (lifepartner) = bhava-1
  • The spouse's professional identity is often inextricably insinuated into one's-own-self

Martha Custis Washington was a wealthy landowner, in possession of numerous profitable tobacco plantations, and owner of many African slaves. Although MCW was a savvy businesswomen in her own right, during her second marriage to GW, her public career was inextricably linked to his personality and leadership roles.

  • Guru in bhava-7would suggest several alliances. Before marrying the widow Martha Custis, GW was in love with a romantic partner
  • GW was engaged to marry his beloved, when the girl's father broke their promise due to GW's poor prospects.
  • Ann's father married his daughter to another man.
  • Tradition has it that GW continued to carry a torch for this lover. It was known in the planter circles the GW continued to visit her on horseback.
  • Ketu-Mithunaya suggests a pattern of severance, decapitation, distancing or disinterest toward the partner.

Although polite society would not have permitted the indiscretion to be mentioned, there is some justification in the nativity for framing Martha Dandridge Custis as the second lifepartner. Lifepartner-2 = Makara-11 governance, economics, friendships, common-cause.

  • GW's marriage to Martha Custis is legendary for its expansive financial and diplomatic support of the Revolutionary cause.
  • Martha Custis may be better understood as GW's second lifepartner = bhava-11 friendship, fundraising, community activism.

Papa-kartari yoga pinches Budha in vriddhi-bhava. Hemmed-in by progressive social networker Surya-Kumbha = social responsibility and leadership roles on one side, and by privilege-seeking priestly Rahu -Chandra (10)

Guru * dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)

lagnesha for Meena radical lagna

  • Guru-Kanya * much ministry of service * many servants * numerous employees * indoctrination of laborers * much logical argumentation * conflicted guidance * permission to help * generously assists many victims * optimistic about medication * believes in aid * doctrine of benevolent humility
  • Guru in bhava-7 * many contracts * optimistic negotiations * much partnership * abundant agreement * numerous alliances * extensive bargaining * multiple trusts * expansion of advocacy * fertile match-making * typically more than one spouse * patron of legal arrangements * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be a deal-maker


Guru occupies Kanya-7 in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra.

GW was a large-framed man. He stood 6 feet tall, nearly a head taller than average-size men of his day.

He also ate well.

Guru-7 Drishti to Brihaspati's rashi Meena lagna * mutual aspect with Zukra-1 + Shani-1 = a handsome fellow (Zukra) who accepted a heavy burden of social responsibility (Shani)

Zukra = the kharesha

Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity * limited luxuries * orderly feminine figures * pragmatic finance * contractual discipline * socially constrained harmony * conventionally regulated pleasures * trust in age * mutuality over time * class-structured arrangements


From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, sober serious structured hierarchical Shani rules

  1. the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  2. the emotionally talkative, information-delivering, evangelical, publishing, announcing, script-reading, reporting, conversational, process-managing communications of 3rd-from-Chandra

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

  • Mula annihilation, liberation Rahu-Dhanuzya * shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of generous patronage * extraordinary theory * extravagant preaching * unorthodox approach to higher truth * mask of global humanism* fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous proselytism * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of philosophical belief * seeks privilege via guru-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * in svabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous executive decisions * thrilled by iconic status * craves symbolic importance * hungers for regulatory authority * outsider who cleverly insinuates into lawful governance * cleverly challenges official rules * mesmerizing ascent to high social status * may pose as a boss * shimmering smoky illusion of legitimate power * trespasses cultural limits of old hierarchies * boundary-breeching hunger for commanding authority * ambition for elite rank * desires to hold a respected position * opportunistic climb to top of the corporate pyramid * culturally-mixed reputation * ambition of the father's family
  • Rahu-yuti-Soma * amplified emotion * magnified familiarity * exotic habits * tricky routines * opportunistic mother * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking * hypnotic rhythms * emotionally attuned to cross-cultural mixing


Extraordinary Leadership * Rahu

Mula Rahu in bhava-10 ++ Rahu-uttama in 10th navamsha = a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting, authority-challenging career.

  • A New World Order would arise, with Washington the Free Mason (Chandra-Rahu) as its first leader.

Military Career

Trained and effective commanders well before the war, GW and his brothers had served as a longtime professional British Army officers. His brothers were trained in Britain but due to financial constraints following his father's death, GW was trained in the Virginia Colony.

  • During the American revolutionary war against the ruling authority of King George and the British taxation apparatus, GW switched sides (Rahu).

Guerrilla War

The British troops had vastly superior supplies of food, camp shelter, and armaments, of which GW was acutely aware.

Thus GW turned to guerrilla fighting. Guerilla = a style of little guerre that utilizes sneak attacks, secret positions, and espionage. Guerilla warfare relies on the local fighters' acute knowledge of the land and its denizens. Rahu-yuti-Soma

  • By these efforts of the little war, GW was able to discover when the enemy British troops might be vulnerable to surprise attack.
  • Despite the daunting odds against their success, the rag-tag American volunteer army succeeded in overthrowing a hugely more prepared adversary.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversation * incomplete messages * empty instructions * absent from discussion * wandering mentality * fragmented signals * not limited by conventional talk * dialog of liberation * ignores normal business * forgives the sibling-cohort * incoherent scripts * releases a plant-green cloud of explanatory gestures into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the cultural foundations * absentee mother-figure * disregards local customs * dissolved property boundaries * wanders from the ancestral home * often away * ignores conventional schooling * irrelevance of habitual folkways * surrenders nationality * dismisses bondage to parents * abandons the established routines * may prefer to live free from fixed roots

Feminine Nativities


Mrigashirsha * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani * Ena-ziras

BPL commentary

For Mriga-zirshana births of a feminine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, and provoke.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa ladies tend to be physically fit, agile, energetic sportswomen and dancers. They are often found in politics, entertainment, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate markswomen, able to handle weapons if necessary. They often have an interest in metalcraft. Agrahayani ladies may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha - Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Pada 1-2 pursue gracious arrangements, match-making, and brokerage in secluded environments, such as the private bedroom or in distant lands. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are vocal socialites skilled in conflict intervention, and natural ministers of aid. Pada 3-4 may focus on community activism, economic profits, and service to the wounded (whether the wounds are physical, mental, or emotional).

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mrigazirshana-Invaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 91

  • It could not have been easy to be married to the commander of a poorly trained, vastly out-manned and out-gunned revolutionary guerilla army
