James Madison quote that is carved into marble at the Library of Congress

  • "A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both.

  • Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Pushya - Sidhya


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 and fishing, home-building and 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.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82r.

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

rulers of 2 + 4 + 11 in 9 - [uchcha] Shukra = superb education, classical languages [2] philosophy [9] rhetoric [2]

Like all of the Southern leaders of the new-born United States of America, James Madison was a materially wealthy man whose family had the resources to grant him an elite education.

He was born the eldest of 12 children, of which seven survived to adulthood. Madison attended a Virginia boarding school where he was educated in the Classics, and where his lifetime love of reading was established.

Madison's father [uchcha] Shukra-yuti-Surya was a wealthy, slave-owning Virginia planter who arranged private tutoring for his sickly son when James was forced to leave the boarding school due to illness.


His inherited income provided more than sufficiently for himself and his family.


Madison's independent inherited wealth was the privilege that allowed him to dedicate his time and attention to codifying and clarifying the structural principles upon which the newborn nation would be founded.

The new nation was based on Enlightenment principles [9 principles] . It drew its precedents from British ancestral foundations [Shukra activates 4] . Yet, it was unique -- unlike any other country in existence [Surya uniqueness, genius] .

It had to be thought through, discussed, described, considered. There is rich resource via Shukra-Surya, so that matters of survival, earning a living, could be ignored while the philosophical principles [9] were refined [Shukra].


A bachelor until age 43, on 15-Sep-1794 Ketu-Shukra bhukti James Madison married the 26-year-old widow Dolley Payne

JM and Dolley were introduced by JM's constitution-framing [9] friend Aaron Burr [Shukra activates 11 friends] in the parlor [talking room] of a Philadelphia home [Shukra activates 4 home]

[uchcha] Shukra activates 11 + Shukra occupies 11th-from-11th bhava-9

Soft-spoken and carefully reasoning Madison was the closest adviser and personal friend to the adventurous and often controversial POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson

  • Madison did the lion's share of the thinking while Jefferson did most of the table-pounding and promoting.
  • They were a team

Although it was primarily a Jefferson initiative, Madison [a Princeton graduate] assisted Jefferson with founding the University of Virginia, and Madison served nominally as Chancellor of U-Va from 1826 until his death in 1836. Shukra-9 universities.

DOLLEY as friend of friend = super-friend = 11th-from-11th [uchcha] Shukra-9

Before James Madison was POTUS, Dolley also served as as a White House hostess for JM's best friend, Thomas Jefferson .

Due to class prejudice, Dolley stood in lieu of Jefferson's true partner Sally Hemings. Sally was the enslaved stigmatized quadroon half-sister of Jefferson's deceased wife Martha.

Without Dolley's social skills [9] Jefferson's competitive, sometimes aggressive, personality could have created a hostile environment at a delicate time. As it was, Dolley's graceful entertainments kept the wine, talk, and dancing at a pleasantly productive conversational flowr.

The Politics [5] of Slavery

Instrumentalist and opportunist Professor Rahu yuti Shani-5 indicates political expediency under difficult circumstances.

Even though a provider of material wealth, sober structural Shani has a certain downside due to His entanglement with opportunistic Rahu.

Madison's father earned lavishly from slave-operated agriculture = Surya-yuti-[uchcha] Shukra . Aided by Vishaka-Chandra which has a tolerance for extreme shakti, Madison accepted the injustice of slavery as a bitter fact of agricultural economics in the revolutionary new nation.

JM was not an anti-slavery abolitionist like his colleague POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams.

[Shani in Bhava-5] a troublesome eldest child

Bailing out Dolley's son from jail [12th-from-6 release from jail] and paying off the stepson's debts [12th-from-6 release from debts] were frequent and expensive necessities for Madison [Shani necessity] r.

The lawfulness pressure from Shani is not a comfortable constraint for privilege-seeking Rahu but this difficult pair Shani-yuti-Rahu nevertheless produces a benefit of out-smarting [clever Rahu] and out-lasting [enduring Shani] the vicissitudes of politics.

Few Friends

Aside from Jefferson, James Madison had few close friends. Mainly he consulted with Dolley and with his extremely long-lived mother.

Dissipation of Revenues = Urisha [banking] [Ketu in classroom-11]

JM was born into considerable wealth. However, over the course of his lifetime, JM lost virtually all of his wealth by means of not paying attention to it [Ketu in classroom-11] .

JM's risk-loving stepson [Rahu-5] nearly bankrupted JM via the stepson's gambling [5] and a wild lifestyle [Rahu].

JM had productive slave plantations which should have provided a continuous high income. [uchcha] Shukra ruler of 11 occupies 11-from-11, indicating that JM was comfortably funded while he politicked and wrote and wrote and wrote. The legendary social skills of Dolley Madison also kept them in a friendship network of well-heeled colleagues [uchcha] Shukra vriddhipati friendships] .

Yet, JM disregarded the rules of planation management, and the farms lost money. A lot of money.

Madison was born into landed wealth and well-educated. He inherited a valuable plantation from his father. However, the plantation was mismanaged in his absence while he fulfilled unpaid governance duties, and at the end of his life he feared poverty.

At the time of Madison's death, both JM and Dolley were virtually indigent.

For Viśākha births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the husband.

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.

They are often found in advising and recommending roles [Shukra] which engage ideology or theory [Guru] such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Tula-Viśākha, the husband may also be impoverished or ailing [due to Guru activates 3-6 from Tula] .

Vṛścika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-treasury, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic action. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 ladies are often found in teaching and healing work, especially when using their expertise with the sexual-reproductive energies.

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. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97r.

" ... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character , even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."


Dolley Madison in midlife, engraving

ups and downs of the Mahadasha cycle

  • Dolley had periods of devastating loss from sickness. She died lonely in acute poverty.
  • However, she also had decades of extraordinary luxury with abundant friends and lavish income.
  • The Budha-Shani chidra-dasha was notably challenging due to the weight of separative scarcity in material circumstances [Shani], and a sudden mandate for closure even when one may be young.
  • Mahadasha of Shukra lagnesha was supremely favorable as Shukra-7 casts drishti into kalpa-sthāna.
  • Kuja Mahadasha and Rahu Mahadasha at the end of life were relatively challenging. Her Tula indriya-lagna receives drishti from Shukra randhresha-8 and also from Budha vyaya-pati-12, insinuating and undercurrent of volatility [8] verging into extinction [12] .


Dolley Payne Madison painted by Rembrandt Peale in 1817 [DPM age 49] . By middle age, severe rosacea had begun to form red scar tissue on her face and neckr.

[Surya in bhava-8] -Vrishabha = Dad was secretive in dealings, as Dolley by necessity also was. Surya activates economic income 11 but Surya-8 requires that the sources + connections of the revenues are not disclosed.

Dad was excommunicated from the Quaker congregation Shani-yuti-Ketu-9 [father, doctrine, sangha] . Dolley also was ejected from that faith-community when she married the slave-owner James Madison.

200 years after her service [1800-1840] Dolley Madison is still a household name in many USA homes.

  • Yet, the remarkable legal governance codifications of James Madison have been relegated to the history books for two centuries gone.

Madison was publically appreciative and complimentary of Dolley, as were nearly all of his colleagues

Dolley's Chandra-Karkata suggests a preference for elder, lawful partners

  • At the time of their marriage, bachelor James Madison was 43 ++ widow Dolley Payne was 26.

  • continual challenge due to his mother-and-stepfather
  • but this son was also his mother's primary security in life [4 foundations] so she never stopped enabling his gambling and debt dysfunctions

Agent of polarizing catalysis = the Son

DPM's dissolute son was a source of constant frustration to his mother and his stepfather.

Dolley's surviving son named Payne Madison did poorly in school [likely due to learning disabilities] . He became an alcoholic and inveterate gambler. He was constantly in and out of jail for debts and " shooting incidents" [Mangala-6 rules-5] .

In widowhood, Dolley faced unexpected and debilitating poverty.

  • Firstly, her husband had neglected the affairs of his plantations, after which they had sold much of their property with slaves in order to pay her son's debts.
  • Secondly, DPM handed the management of the remaining properties to her son, who mismanaged the farms and ruined any remaining value.

  • 1801-1809 James Madison served as Secretary of State.
  • 1809 until 1817 James Madison served as POTUS-04

As the leading political hostess in Washington D.C. during the 18-year bhukti 1800-1818, Dolley Payne Madison played a significant, but gender-discounted, role in establishing the future of the fledgling country and negotiating personality conflicts between the leaders.

Her balancing, relationship-cultivating Shukra-yuti-Budha-Mesha-7 occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra displays an empowered career as a crafter of partnership agreements.

Without her physically active [Mesha] support, the shy and soft-spoken legal writer James Madison would likely have stayed in retirement following his exit [during his 40's] from the House of Representatives.

Yet Dolley liked to relate with Shukra music and dancing [Arudra Svamsha] , and her expertise in connecting people of disparate interests through shared food and drink [Shukra] and conversation [Budha] built Madison's career from House of Representatives to Secretary of State to POTUS-04r.

A brutal Budha-Shani chidra-dasha, Dolley's age 22-23 * Budha-8 in 12th-from-Shani activates Shani-yuti-Ketu

Eleven months before marrying James Madison in 1794, Dolley had been widowed by the yellow fever epidemic that had swept through Philadelphia. The infectious fever killed her first husband and her infant son, along with more than 5000 other citizens. Her father had died the year earlier, her mother had moved away, and her husband's parents who might have helped her had also perished in the plague. Destitute and grieving, she was left with one living son named Payne Todd, aged two.

Shani-yuti-Ketu-Mithuna-9 had significantly disconnective outcomes, since [Yogakaraka] Shani activates both 4-homes security cultural roots ++ 5-children, gambling, creativity, politics .

[Shani-yuti-Ketu] -9 rules 4- homes and farm properties.

Contrary to Dolley's Quaker upbringing, after marriage her homes were maintained by slaves. Their family [consisting of James, Dolley, Dolley's sister, and Dolley's son] could travel as needed, knowing that their homes were being operated in absentia by faithful slaves.

Bandesha Shani-yuti-Ketu-9 suggests that Dolley's beliefs were often permeable and inconsistent., and Shani occupies t6th-from-4th, predicting chronic problems with property. Toward the end of life, due largely to her son's mismanagement of their properties and her husband being 17 years her elder, Dolley who had once socialized with the most capitalized planters experienced sickness, isolation, and poverty

[Shani-yuti-Ketu] -9 activates 5-children, gambling

Dolley's son Payne Todd became a problematic adult. He suffered from alcoholism, compulsive gambling, and social indiscretions. Dolley continued to believe in him and James continued to fund him. James turned over control of his once-prosperous tobacco plantation [the family's only source of income] to Payne, and Payne mismanaged the property so badly that James, his elderly mother, Dolley, and Payne were embittered by poverty toward the end of their lives. Historians attribute Madison's financial collapse mainly to Payner.

Bewildering Beliefs

Dolley's father was excommunicated from his lifetime Quaker congregation due to his business failures. He sold a profitable slave-labor farm according to Quaker abolitionist principles [9].

However, dad did not understand any other kind of business [Mithuna] except for the familiar cruelties of slave-labor farming. He became commercially disoriented [Ketu-Mithuna] and floundered financially.

The Calvinist-influenced believers saw dad's failure as a liability afflicting their faith community [Ketu-yuti-Shani-9] . Because an insolvent fellow-believer might endanger their security in this life and the next, [9, beliefs] he was thrown out from the sangha [Ketu-yuti-Shani]

Dolley's family had been multi-generational Quaker stalwarts and Dolley was raised as a pious, tithing believer. Yet, Dolley walked away from the Quaker teachings after her dad was callously dismissed [Ketu-9]. She had no further use for any religious credenda.

[Shani-yuti-Ketu] the Liberator in bhava-9

supports legitimation [Shani] of Freedom of Religion. dharmesha Budha-7 makes it an agreed law.

  • POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Payne Madison was raised into the Quaker faith, and her first husband was a Quaker too. But after being widowed, Dolley accepted the marriage proposal of non-Quaker POTUS-04 James Madison whom she married in 1794. She was excommunicated from the Quaker assembly for marrying outside of her faith, and she avoided religious affiliation until advanced age, when in her seventies she joined a local Protestant church. The Madisons were both staunch defenders of religious freedom in the new USA, where they helped to resist the movement to legally impose taxes to support a state Church.
