" It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished.

But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, "whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection," and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security whatsoever."

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Pushya - Sidhya

Tisya - Poosam - Pushyami - Paukshakya - Vutkrita - Barhaspatya - Indrapurohita - Avra


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

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, 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 from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlementr.

Laws and Customs

[Shani] -ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as pathwaus of transportation, farming + fishing, home-building + real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles [Shani] that provide an orderly process [Shani] for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya.

Surya activates lagnesha demonstrates the deep influence of the father upon the son, yet Surya-Vanika [nīcha] is often indecisive and younger John meant to remedy that by taking leadership.


Surya activates Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman


Surya-Vanika-3 publications about trade, representation, equity, justice, fair laws

Adams was a powerfully influential figure in the Revolutionary Movement. In the years before 1776, he published carefully reasoned legal [Tula] arguments in the local newspapers [3] and shared in a vivid, frequent, detailed correspondence with the members of the think-tank Continental Congress. He was a substantial contributor to the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. After independence his writings shaped several waves of legislation.

Chandra-9 enjoys mutual aspect to Surya-yuti-Shukra-3. This angle indicates Abigail's extraordinary Letters [3] and his decades of career diplomatic negotiation [Tula]. His authority [Surya] a tended to fluctuate due to a weakened Surya-Tula engaging with undulating vyaya-pati Chandra.

Political views on central authority [Surya]

Adams' views on royalty and autocratic power in government [Surya] were considered the weakest part of his political philosophy = [nīcha] Surya-yuti-Shukra-karmesha. Typical of Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman natives, Adams favored a strong central executive. As a way of avoiding the endless squabbling of mixed-culture, mixed-education, mixed-intelligence assemblies, he promoted the concept of creating a line of American Kings. As history proves, this particular idea was vigorously dismissed by the colonial visionaries and made Adams some lifelong enemies.

[Chandra Mahadasha] [age 26.3 until 36.3

Emotional volatility = 6/8 shad-ashtakya relationship between Chandra-9 + ruler Kanya-Kuja-yuti-Rahu-2

Chandra-9 activates 12-distant lands. Rumors of war.

Career during Chandra Mahadasha= distinguished by Chandra qualities of patriotism, affection for local rhythms and routines, need for acceptance and belonging, roots in agriculture, environmentalism, involvement with maritime commerce and shipping = Tea Taxes in Port of Boston = taxation without representation

At age 22, JA earned his Law License and started to practice his trade. By the onset of Chandra-9 mahadasha, his age 26, he was entering the early-career years as an increasingly reputable attorney.

During his 35th year + Chandra-Shukra bhukti [Shukra karmesha] the 1770 Boston Massacre,

in which uniformed British troops fired upon and killed American colonists in Boston, brought Adams to the forefront of the building Revolutionary Movement.

Adams was well educated. Typical of Chandra-9, he was comfortable in the world of theory, doctrine, and first principles. Chandra-Aśvini = an innovator. Ruled by the extremely volatile Kanya-Kuja-yuti-Rahu-2 speech = a powerfully argumentative [Kanya], sometimes bombastic [Kuja] style of expressing the core beliefs [9] that he cherished.

A legal philosopher and skilled expository writer, Adams became a Thought Leader in the 1770's as the colonial intelligentsia were discussing a potentially explosive break from the grossly unfair taxes of King George The first step of the New Nation would be construction of an enlightened, coherent new justice system, and Adams construtionist legal reasoning shone a brilliant light into that urgently impending future..

Even today, 250 years after their first publication, Adams' jurisprudential writings are studied in universities due to their pioneering [Mesha] articulation of a radically new [innovative Chandra-Aśvini paradigm of belief upon which a new legal system would be established [Chandra establish] .

During Chandra Mahadasha his localization [Somama] patterns deepened. Adams married his cousin Abigail, set up a household near his childhood home, and bought a farm . However, due to Shani-10 governance duties and also to the 6/8 shad-ashtakya relationship with ruler Kanya-Kuja-yuti-Rahu-2, he would spend precious little time in this homestead during the coming decades.

Career not helped much by Chandra 9-12

Not only does the emotionally ideological Chandra-9 occupy the 12th-from-10. Also, Chandra activates bhava-12 isolation. Prima facie, it would seem that Adams should have enjoyed a long-lasting and dominant role in top executive duties However, his career was harmed by an exceptionally irascible temper [Chandra] and by long periods of invisibility .

Adams was out-of-the-loop during his overseas assignments, able to communicate only by letter [which might be lost if the ships sank] Foreign service isolated him from the maturing new American leadership cohort and allowed his enemies such as Thomas Jefferson to gain support in Adams' absence.

Large family + stout body

Guru-5 drishti into Chandra-9

multiplicity of political environments

Chandra determines the physical appearance more than any other graha. Nicknamed by his adversaries His Rotundity Adams suffered from overweight for most of his life due to a jolly Guru-Dhanus drishti into his Chandra-Aśvini-9. The same drishti is responsible for his reproductive fertility which overcame frequent marital separations to create a large family.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations


Adams' redoubtable wife POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams wrote an astounding number of coherent, philosophical, detailed, politically influential letters. Historians consider Abiga to have vitally shaped the New Nation.

The couple endured multiple and extended separations along with tragic events concerning their children. However, abigail closed the martial distance gap with her beautiful correspondence, and John replied with his own developed, descriptive views.

[Shukra-yuti-Surya] -[nīcha] 3 located in 7th-from-Chandra indicates the mix of managing, publishing intelligence [Surya] with diplomatic grace and justice which characterized Abigail's personality. If Adams did manifest a secondary wifely-companion [Surya] the other-wife would have had relatively little influence [nichha] . There were several years-long periods of total separation in the marriage caused by his job duties, especially his extended overseas diplomatic missions, during which Abigail was a single mother and farm manager. There were also eight years of widowhood following Abigail's death which could have introduced a private second partner.

John Adams was a brilliant legal scholar whose writings [Budha] helped lay the foundational [4] legal structure for the new nation. Yet, adams' overall success was limited by his volatile temperament Kuja-yuti-Rahu.

Verbally aggressive Mangala-yuti-Rahu-2 resides in the emotionally distressed 6th-from-Chandra = forcefully, opportunistically argumentative thrust in a 70-year long battle of words against his enemies, notably

[Kuja-yuti-Rahu] occupies 6th-from-dharmasthana, dissolving paradigms of belief [9] both political and religious. While nominally a deist, Adams was a committed promoter of Freedom of Religion within each and every colony, including Massachusetts which had been established as a specifically theocratic state. Many who were loyal to the Old Ways [Chandra] found his argument [Kanya] very unsettling [Rahu] and indeed illegal. However, Mangala-Kanya is determined to pursue a remedy for injustice [Kanya] and Adam's logic prevailed.

American Revolutionary War endured for nine years * began 19-Apr-1775 * ended 03-Sep-1783

It was a period of violent, intensely argued change with increasingly aggressive, proactive, exciting birth of a new nation. JA was mainly working during this time as a financial agent of the nation-to-be [Mangala-2] in the royal courts of Europe.

Due to the isolating effects of Chandra in 8th-from-Mangala, while vigorously [Kuja] serving his country, JA was at the same time pushed out of the loop and could only write copious letters in the hope that someone might quote him in a live meetingr.

John Adams = a brilliant political and legal writer whose incisive [Vṛścika] revolutionary narrative shaped the legal foundation [4] of such essential institutions as the Supreme Court and the USA Constitution, inter alia.

For nearly a decade, JA was deployed as a diplomat in England and France representing the new-nation USA's commercial interests [Budha activates Rahu-2 talking with exotics] .

Adams' foundational documents [Budha] continue to shine 250 years after he penned his Thoughts. Adams' verbal clarity and the certainty of his philosophical and moral conviction [Shani-4] remain nearly unmatched in the history of USA legal philosophy.

Budha-4 parivartamsha [Mangala-yuti-Rahu] -2

Brilliantly incisive [Kuja] and exceedingly critical master of revolutionary political-legal argumentation. He was a genius of detail [Budha] vigorously articulating the logical principles by which the banking, tax, and trade systems of the newborn USA were to be governed.

1776 Mangala-Budha bhukti * Budha-4 rules Kuja-yuti-Rahu-2 published Thoughts on Government

Also with his wife and peer-thinker Abigail Adams , John Adams composed an extensive and beautifully written body of letters [Budha] over several decades, documenting the philosophical and political development of the new nation USA.

Personal Venom and Vindictiveness in a lifetime Battle of Words Yet, he helps birth a New Nation

Johns Adams was a cranky and acerbic in in his criticism of fellow revolutionaries [8] and downright nasty toward some of the foundational builders of the new nation.

John Adams' capacity for vindictive accusation apparently knew no bounds. Adams' astounding campaign propaganda against his arch-enemy Jefferson seem wildly preposterous [Rahu-2] .

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson defeated Adams in the Nov-1800 election. During the bitter rivalry leading to the vote, Adams claimed that if Jefferson were elected, "murder, robbery, rape, adultery, and incest will be openly taught and practiced."

Adams and Jefferson later resolved their differences due to intervention by Abigail Adams , and wrote many letters to each other. They died within hours of each other on the celebrated 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, 04-Jul-1826.

Contentious, self-destructive Budha randhresha energized by critical attacking Kuja

Most historians believe that Adams' year-1796 decision to retain the entire cabinet [Budha committee] used by POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington was entirely wrong-headed. Unlike the more suave Washington, scrappy Mr. Adams bluntly attacked the plans and suggestions [Budha] of the Cabinet members which almost instantly alienated the self-important, rich planters.

They then colluded against Adams, and affiliated with his copperhead adversary Jefferson. Despite Adams' huge contributions to national stability including his having achieved a peace negotiation with France [Shukra negotiations, diplomacy] Adams lost the re-election of 1800 due to animosities with other leading figures.

Nasty and critical, often distrusted, but acknowledged as brilliant and essential to the nation

The powerful Uttarabhadra Washington was seen as a man of sound judgment, generosity, and enduring vision [not to mention he was the single richest man in the colonies] .

Poorer and tetchier Adams, whose Ketu-Meena contacts Washington's Meena indriya-lagna, was seen as a blathering critic [Kuja-Kanya] and egg-head philosopher [Chandra-9] . He lacked mutual solidarity with the governing cohort. Adams could not create a new cabinet since he did not have a loyal support group.

Yet, adams strong suit was legal theory, and it is to him that all accolades flow for laying the principled legal foundation of the New Republic.

Dhanayoga Budha

Compared to his astoundingly rich friends [11] , especially his closest friend POTUS-01 American Revolution 1732-1799 George Washington who was the richest POTUS in American history, Adams accumulated relatively few assets during his lifetime. Like all the leaders of the new nation he served with no salary.

Budha-4 ruler of 2 + 11 does offer a dhanayoga in regard to lands and properties. Both his childhood home and his adult farm remained in the family for 200 years until bought by the USA government as a historic trust. Later generations of his family slowly developed treasuries based on their ancestors' honor.

JA maintained an elder, influential voice through his correspondence but after the catastrophic personal vendetta by Jefferson during Guru-Shani bhukti [Shani rogesha] , he was done with public life. Guru activates [12th-from-Chandra] retreat.

As a diplomat in foreign service, Adams focused on commercial relationships [Shukra-3] with European partners after the Revolutionary War. His negotiations also targeted obtainment of loans to finance military operations Shani-10 rogesha ruled by Shukra-3 commerce] . He bargained a peace treaty with France following the war of 1798 [Shukra].

His work on both sides [Shukra 2-sides] of the Atlantic during the early decades of Independence involved tireless deal-making among the disparate economic, political, and ideological domestic factions.

He labored for decades to restore financial arrangements [Shukra] with pre-war trading [Vanika, trading] in Britain and France.


Know primarily via his writings [Shukra karmesha + [Surya-yuti-Shukra] -3] , both scholarly and popular.

[Shukra Mahadasha] [age 3-months until 20.3

Early education and home culture promotes Shukra concepts of justice, equity, power-sharing, fair laws. By the age of 20, Adams knew that he could not be a soldier, craftsman, or farmer. He would be a lawyer.

Partnerships * Kalatrakaraka Shukra

Surya-yuti-Shukra in 7th-from-Chandra


Left to his own confrontational habits [Chandra ruled by a volatile Kuja-2] without the skillful interventions of kalatra-karaka Shukra-Tula, John Adams' career likely would have faltered at an early stage.

Luckily for JA, his cherished wife and cousin POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams was an expert buffer [Tula]. She worked as a sweetening middleman to assuage the feelings of those aggrieved by Adam's sharp words, so that the nation-building about which they were all so passionate could proceed in a healthier more pleasant way.

Combust Shukra weakens Banking and Financial affairs

Adam's ideological enemies including Jefferson bitterly opposed the idea of a federal bank as a mechanism to capitalize the national economy. During his presidency 1797-1801 he won the economic debate on appeal to a broader sense of contractually governed, distributive justice [Shukra Thula contracts] .

Yet, his enemies were primarily the wealthy Southern planters. They disliked Adams' northern mercantile approach to contractual loan-making from a central bank. They preferred to keep the capital reserves within the hands of a small cohort of super-wealthy individuals.

Adams was a friend of the mercantile classes, but the planters were distrustful of puritanical, egalitarian Northern culture and its abolitionist tendencies that could [and eventually did] spell the end of their slave-driven, concentrated wealth.

Super-governance structure but also rogesha

Shani-10 Krittika indicates weighty duties in governance due to the double-power conferred by also ruling 10th-from-Chandra.

Despite His governance portfolio, Shani is the rogesha. He causes plenty of accusation, fighting, and toxic complaint. Adams; shockingly lost his re-election to POTUS-2 second term during Guru-Shani bhukti . Jealous Jefferson forced Adams into premature retirement.

Shani-10 occupies the family-lineage genetics of 2nd-from-Chandra.

The Adams Family became a political dynasty, but it produced a mix of responsible leaders along with decrepit alcoholics and unwell offspring [both mentally and physically] .

As an elderly widower, Adams lived int he home of his married daughter until death age 90.

Rogesha Shani-10 located in 6th-from-5th * overall health of the children

John and Abigail Adams clearly loved their children, but their genetic and social reality was harsh.

Their constantly moving and often-separated children were in-and-out of school, shifting house, changing countries, sailing under storm, assaulted by war, politics, addiction, and disease.

Their father John Adams was a combustible fellow. Their mother, though strong of spirit, was physically fragile. Excepting their one remarkably able son POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams all of their children suffered some species of intense misery. Like his siblings, JQ had a notoriously unhappy marriager.

OUTCOMES - RAHU -Chitra-bhava-2

Rahu-Chitra is designing, impatient, architecturally-minded, challenges outdated structures, dynamically diplomatic

Capitalization, Voice-Face, Rahu-challenge to rigid social practices in finance, diplomacy, worthiness, truth

Rahu in bhava-2 seeks privilege via important - often risky - cultural-mixing roles in evaluation, assessment, language, memory, knowledge, voice-speech-song, face-genetics, heritage, tradition, family lineage, food, seeds, herds-hoards, storage-stories-history, libraries, museums, databases, collections, banking, reserves, preservation, assets, capital wealth.

Rahu-2 casts drishti upon 6-8-10, amplifying the excitements of

  • 6-conflicts
  • 8-secrets
  • 10-legislative authority, maintenance of social order

[Kuja-yuti-Rahu] -2-Kanya amplifies the natural investigating and arguing behaviors of Kuja-Kanya, magnifying the risk-taking bravado and ambitiousness of the critical complaints emitting from Adams.

Rahu occupies the emotionally sickening [6th-from-Chandra]+ Chandra occupies the revolutionary, incendiary 8th-from-Rahu

6th-from-Chandra contains the volatile, competitive, ambitious, and criticizing Mangala-yuti-Rahu-Kanya-2, focusing its critical arguments upon the urgency of war [Mangala] against an exploitive [6] oppressor.

Adams continuously alienated those who might have been allies via his incisive, often logically correct [Kanya] but exceptionally aggressive and impatient criticism. Yet, his specific and closely reasoned legal arguments [Kanya] influenced the once-unimaginable [Rahu] insurrection of colonial farmers with rusted muskets [the fyrd] fighting * and winning * against the heavily armed, trained, well-funded British Redcoats..

Rahu occupies [6th-from-Chandra]

Genetic issues-2 streaming down the lineages of both husband and wife.

Their offspring were troubled. His children inherited the alcoholism, disease-discomfort, and depression patterns which ran through his and his wife's families. Even his distinguished son POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams suffered from angry depression and remarkable marital difficulties.

[Rahu Mahadasha] [age 43.3 until 62.3

Rahu-Budha bhukti = 1788

After long years in foreign service, Rahu brought Adams home to serve as VPOTUS under Washington of the new nation. Budha-4 homeland rules Rahu-2. Adams was elected POTUS-02 when Washington retired, and afterward Adams never ventured outside the homeland.

Unlike the genial, admired, super-wealthy [from slave labor] General Washington whose authority was never questioned, Adams' cranky, often broke, argumentative nature created powerful animosities. Adams was unable to form a stable cabinet of loyal advisors. Squabbling and dissent penetrated every meeting. Conditions of impending disaster seem to attend his every endeavorr.
