Ohibridna * Uttara-Proshtha-padas * Andromeda
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.
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,
A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money
Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him
He is very intelligent
and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Distinctive features of the nativity
Dad = Benjamin Pierce, 1757-1839
CAREER - SURYA
Surya in bhava-9 = paternalistic leader.
Surya ruled by the passive-aggressive and incoherent Ketu-yuti-Kuja-nichha-5
A his father before him, FP supported the primacy of States Rights (Surya entitlements). In its extreme interpretation, this judicial principle would forbid the federal government [Shani] from interfering with state conduct regardless of state-level abuse.
Despite his wife (and most of the North) demanding federal slavery-abolition as a non-negotiable moral mandate, FP became indecisive and unclear in his slavery policy. FP felt [Chandra] that war (6) was inevitable.
The weight of incumbency notwithstanding, his unreliable stance caused FP's political party (5) to withdraw their nomination for his second term. (Ketu-5 withdraw from politics.)
Mom was the mother of eight and step-mother of one.
MARRIAGE partnerships support expectations
Challenges to the Alliance
Jane Appleton Chandra in Mula
Sober heaviness of Shani
Shani-yuti-Zukra-7 = rulers of 3 + 8 + 11 + 12 * An educated woman and a preacher's daughter, Jane Appleton was notoriously serious, pious, and unsmiling [Shani]. She dressed in black and covered her face with silk bonnets.
Jane's college-president father had secured a college education for her. Jane somberly participated (11) in community activism (11) especially in the anti-slavery movement.
Shani in Bhava-7 activates 7th-from-Chandra.
Sadly, she suffered from chronic melancholy and tuberculosis. Her unending grief, following the deaths of her three sons, put her in a permanent state of unavailable withdrawn mourning.
Much of what bonded them was tragedy and senseless loss (tboth Ketu-ruled Chandra placements).
Zukra-yuti-Shani suggests two marriages
Zukra-nichha + Shani occupies 2nd-from-Chandra suggesting that there would be a second alliance, albeit late in life (Shani delay) ++ socially un-avowed (nichha Zukra).
Kuja activates 2-speech, finance + 9-ideology, father
Mangala in bhava-5 fame, political campaigns, display
As a young attorney, FP was considered an excellent orator (2)
Inconsistent actions Kuja-yuti-Ketu
Caught in a violent (Kuja) and unsustainable (Ketu) political conflict
Like all POTUS who served during the 20 years preceding the US Civil War, Pierce was trapped in the extremely polarized slavery debate.
As the decades progressed without federal legislation, the moral furor of the North battled (Kuja) the financial-cultural customs of the South.
Northern supporter of Southern slavery
Pierce was a Northern friend of the Southern slave-holders. He legally defended the rights (Surya-9) of the slave-exploiters and those who trafficked in human capital (2).
Although passive-aggressive in conduct, ideologically Pierce was not neutral on the topic of slavery.
He staunchly supported the states-governance and property rights claims of the South. Bandhesha (4 property) Budha+Surya ruled by nichha-Kuja+Ketu
FP's waffling was instrumental in evoking the upcoming disaster of the USA Civil War
Most historians squarely blame FP for outright incompetence.
Clutching Aśleṣa-Mangala ++ apathetic legal Pushya-Ketu
Regardless of consequences (Ketu) FP ignored (Ketu) the northern outrage (nichha-Kuja) while protecting the financial (2) entitlements of rich slave-owners.
tragically premature deaths of all three children
All three of his children were males (Kuja) who died young * age 1 + , age 4 + age 11.
Some writers observe the FP, who had been a capable legislator before POTUS-14, might have been much more effective had he not been overwhelmed by horrible personal grief. The grief also disconnected his relationship to his wife, who had once been his supporter.
CAREER - BUDHA
Budha-9 politics rules 4 + 7 property, land-deeds, fencing, settlement
The antebellum years 1840-1860 saw a tremendous land-territory expansion for the USA into the western regions.
Following his single term as POTUS-14, Pierce returned to farming and landowning.
CAREER - GURU
Brihaspati activates Dhanuzya-karmasthana = 5th-from-Chandra.
A politically inclined attorney, son of a former NH governor, FP served in New Hampshire state government, US house of Representatives, and US Senate.
Guru activates 10th navamsha Dhanuzya = national level profile associated with matters of imagination, vision, and belief.
CAREER - ZUKRA
Zukra activates Thula Svamsha
Zukra activates Urisha-3 = 10th-from-Chandra = reputation-defining the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking
Zukra faces much challenge within the Meena nativity
nichha-Zukra-7 activates 3-commerce ++ 8-emergency, volatility, eruption of force
rules-3 emphasizes administration , committee-work, cohort, small-group discussions, financial [Zukra] business concers
ruler of 3 =6th-from-10 = inherent conflict between top-rank vision of the high positions versus the detail-focused, process management of bhava-3.
Most of Pierce's key advising and supporting relationships were broken by vargottamsha nichha-Zukra.
Marriage = Stubbornly enduring, weighted, profoundly unhappy
Navamsha vargottamsha Zukra-nichha yuti Ketu yuti uttama-Budha
They disagreed (Kanya) on all of the important social policy issues of their day.
Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)
CAREER - SHANI
activates-12 = reduces visibility of negotiations, reinforces back-room deals
Shani activates Makara-11 = 6th-from-Chandra
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
Rahu sends drishti into 3 + 5 + 7
Before entering politics, FP was a successful New England attorney who accepted glamorous cases (Rahu) and delighted the gallery with his dramatic speeches (Rahu drishti into dhanesha-Kuja-5 performance).
He was considered a fine orator and colleagues remember his distinctively deep voice.
Rahu Mahadasha * age 47.1 until decease age 64 = 1852-1869
Beginning with a wildcard dark-horse POTUS-14 win during Rahu-Rahu svabhukti (FP age 49)
Unusual people, extraordinary circumstances
Rahu-Makara = high heights, deep fall * Makara = governance
Ambitious Rahu can ascend to extraordinary heights when the timing is right , but Rahu will typically collapse or tumble at some point in the trajectory.
No one was more surprised than Pierce himself when he was nominated for POTUS on his fractious political party's 49th ballot. Pierce was elected POTUS-14 on a very weak compromise ticket with vice-president William King giving the previously quiet senator from New Hampshire a sudden grandiose shot to the top of national prominence.
His wife was horrified, but Pierce accepted. His VPOTUS died before the term started, and Pierce was denied the option to choose a replacement, meaning that he could not delegate any presidential tasks.
Rahu = preposterous interpretations of the Law * Makara
Expedient lawfulness was a key factor in Pierce's disastrous POTUS-14 administration. A narrowly legalistic interpretation of Constitutional Law was claimed to assure protection of slave-owners' property rights, while all around him a moral debate was raging = people cannot be property.
Pierce hailed from New England where abolitionism (abolishing slavery) was widely subscribed. The moral mandate to abolition was argued by such luminaries as Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau.
Kanya Shani-7 lawful slavery rules Rahu-Makara-Draco
FP found no legal support for the abolitionists' moral outrage. He asserted that moral arguments were not germane to the legal, constitutional question about property rights. His expedient (Rahu) interpretation utterly overshadowed (Rahu) the established legal-historical fact that common morality underlies the statutory law.
Shock and Fall
Rahu-11 occupies 6-8 from Chandra +++ Shani activates 8th-from-Chandra = secret enemies
Mar-1957 = Rahu-Shani bhukti
The reasons for Pierce's sudden disfavor are complex but they stem primarily from incompletely substantiated accusations.
Rahu-Shani bhukti is notorious for conflict between Rahu's ambitious personal importance versus Shani's legalistic conformism.
Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
CAREER - KETU
nichha-Mangala-yuti-Ketu dispersal (Ketu dispersal) of dynamic progress (Kuja) reinforced FP's negative reputation for cowardice in battle. (Mangala battle)
nichha-Mangala-yuti-Ketu = confusion of the emotional (Karkata) need to dominate others [Mangala] mixed with Euro-culture principle of owned property Karkata especially agriculture. Pulverizing, dispersing Ketu provided an infelicitously passive-aggressive mix with inconsistent positions on cultural ethics (Karkata) of slavery, alcohol, and women's rights.
Ketu in classroom-5 dissolves children, romance, political coherence
Temperance Movement leader
POTUS-14 pair Jane Appleton Pierce * 1806-1863
POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce
Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta
For Mula births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.
Mula gentlewomen are ready to sacrifice everything in an ongoing act of complete and devastating spiritual surrender. Those born under auspice of nakshatra-pati Nirriti may feel intense yearning for emptiness, evacuation, annihilation, and deconstruction of the superficial personality which opens the gateway into utter rebirth..
Akasha-born feminine beings may find empowerment in acts of purgative spiritual healing. Often their gifts express in physical healing when the mechanism is purging, profound cleansing, expulsion, or eradication. Purification at the root is their specialty.
Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

"... very little happiness through the life ...
To understand this is a help.
The fault lies entirely within herself,
She will have many love affairs and trouble through them.
If she marries, she will be unhappy
She has a weak constitution and her health will be uncertain,
