Tisya - Poosam - Pushyami - Paukshakya - Vutkrita - Barhaspatya - Indrapurohita - Avra
For Pushyami births of a feminine 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
All four pada of Tisya occur within Chandra-ruled Karkata rashi. Births into pada 1-2-3-4 uniformly express the tension between emotionally protective soothing Somana versus lawfully ordering Shani.
Both deeply caring and socially regulatory, Vukrita ladies are often found at the director level of hierarchical organizations that are dedicated to family, parent, and citizen welfare.
Deeply patriotic and protectionist by nature, they have a gift for combining a secure family life with larger social responsibilities. Sidhya feminine figures are influential in the material world, respected for their orderly yet sensitive conduct, and particularly dedicated to the safety of women and children.
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 93
"Distinctly the club-woman type is found here.
She is well-read, cultured and active in all community and social affairs.
In her home she entertains and is fond of indoor games, bridge parties and social gatherings
and she will spend much of it on church and club activities
If she cares to adopt some public career,

Distinctive features of the Nativity
pitri-karaka [father] jyoti-karaka [light]
[collecting-preserving dhanesha for Karkata indriya-lagna]
[charitable-guiding Arudra-4] [navamsha Surya-Meena] intuitively confident communicative  imaginative display
OUTCOMES - SURYA
imaginative, interior, privately guided, conceptual [Surya in bhava-12] rules
Dad = Lawrence Kortright [Kortrijk]. [Surya in bhava-12]
Dad hailed from the Dutch Transatlantic shipping family[Kortrijk] who were landowners in old Dutch Haarlem [later a neighborhood of New York City]. Dad used his inherited capital and shipping connections to earn a fortune as a war privateer 
6/12 Rahu-Ketu on the Surya lagna = Massive gains and tragic losses for Dad
During 1754-1763, Dad made big money [Shukra] by operating as a privateer  - a private business which contracts to an army - supporting the British Army in the French-and-Indian War.
Elizabeth was born in 1768 into luxurious wealth. Mom died in 1777, her age 9, and dad never remarried [Ketu + Shani]. Dad was a staunch British loyalist, unfortunately on the wrong side of history; his great fortune had dwindled by the end of the Revolutionary War. [12, losses]
Thus by the time of her marriage, age 17, in 1786, the family would have been happy to assign the beautiful teenage Elizabeth into the care of plantation-owning attorney, James Monroe, age 27.
[Surya-yuti-Shukra] + [Surya-yuti-Shani] + [Surya-yuti-Ketu] in  exchanging mutual drishti with [Somana-yuti-Rahu] shows a complex trading relationship between the Chandra-Surya pairs of mother-and-father, and security-and-politics,
Most of dad's activities would have been invisible to Elizabeth . It appears that Dad would have been // away on business // most of the time [Mithuna]. Yet, the intense concentration of graha in 12 would have also showed her the world of Transatlantic business agreements, including the elements of finance [Shukra] politics [Surya] and the rules of insurance [Shani randhresha].
CAREER and MARRIAGE, gains and losses
Although EKM had no trust fund, her Transatlatic background knowledge [12 distant lands] her finishing-school education, and her social connections would enable her two-person career with JM.
However, 12 occupies 6th-from-7.
The cycle of losses associated with her 12-cluster would continue in marriage. James Monroe did have family capital, but he overspent on entertainments [Surya-12]. After finishing their POTUS-5 assignment, the couple endured significant financial distress,

EKM suffered from a seizure disorder. Effects began about age 35 , near her second Rahu-Return during Rahu-Rahu svabhukti.
Beginning in her mid-30's while JM was Governor of Virginia, EKM's symptoms worsened as she aged. The earlier onset symptoms included shaking of hands and arms, paralysis, and convulsive seizures. Medicine of the time offered no treatment for epilepsy, which was socially feared as a curse rather than a medical disorder. EKM's social entertainments to support JM's career became strictly limited. Following severe burns from falling into a fireplace during a seizure age 59, EKM died age 62.
Mom = Hannah Aspinwall, scion of an English immigrant strain from Lancashire.

EKM and JM worked as a team, throughout their lives of public service.
JM specialized in Foreign Policy for the USA. The Monroe Doctrine rremains his signature contribution to the American global oureach.
When EKM's seizure disorder made it almost impossible for her to manage her social-networking duties within their professional partnership, their adult daughters stepped into EKM's role.

and perhaps most importantly,
Functionally, EKM's career was defined by her husband [Guru]. Guru's rulers = Budha-1, reinforcing EKM's identity with her lifepartner.
16-year-old EKM met JM when he was introduced to her  by several of his companions  in audience  at a theatre performance.
EKM partnered with her husband James Monroe during a 40-year shared career in international politics. He was a man of broad portfolio in the new national government. Most prominently, JM was a cohort-oriented writer, committee-worker, and administrator .
The Monroe's two-person career was exceptionally collaborative . The cooperative team-working pattern is clearly reinforced by EKM's powerful Mithuna cluster in her 7th-from-Chandra. Their cohort consisted of the so-called Founding Fathers and their lifepartners:
Compassionate Arguments on behalf of the laboring classes [Guru-Kanya ]
The Monroes lived in extremely tumultuous, bitterly resentful times full of underclass uprisings [Kanya]
Their public service career encompassed both the American Revolution and the French Revolution, along with the US governments invisible war against its Native populations.
Guru occupies 4th-from-Surya = father's mother
EKM's mother died in childbirth when little EK was nine years old. From age 9 until her marriage age-17, EK was raised by her father's mother, Hester Kortright .
The Kortright [Kortrijk] family were Dutch-Belgian landowners . They bought land with the capital from their multi-generational highly profitable shipping business.
Guru indicates grandmom's open-minded independence. Grandmom was an exceptionally enabled woman in her era.
Grandmom was businesswoman  who owned extensive real-estate holdings in Old Harlem. She would have role-modeled for EKM how to get along with people of diverse backgrounds and opinions.
