To whom much is given, from whom much is expected.

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 system s, 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."

POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Mūla - Vichruta

Nirriti - Alaxmi


For Mula births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, 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.

Fearless Deconstructivism

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 Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla

" ... very little happiness through the life ...

  • But a determined effort must be made to rectify it.

The fault lies entirely within herself,

[folk reputation 10th-from-Chandra = Kanya 10 public service ministry]

POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce

Mrs. Jane Appleton Pierce suffered from lingering lifelong tuberculosis and severe depression related to the serial deaths of her father and each of her three young sons. Known as the / Shadow of the Whitehouse / she maintained a state of black-garbed mourning during her husband's entire four-year term of office.

A vigorous schedule of parties and dances was expected of a president's wife during the antebellum days. However, socializing was of no interest to Mrs. Pierce. She stayed aloof in her private bedroom, descending only for a few events. She believed that politics was grotesque and immoral. Her first son had died when FP was elected USA-Senator from NH.

Although she remained a loyal wife - and was credited with the ability to restrain her husband's alcoholism - it seemed clear to JAP that the death of her third and final son was divine punishment for her husband's decision to accept the USA-POTUS job, entirely against her wishes.

However, the Whitehouse social calendar did not grind to a halt. Sensitive to her sickness and her grief, other political wives respected her as a Mater Dolorosa [uchcha-Shukra rogesha rules uchcha-Shani-11] respected by community despite conflicts] The the pre-war entertainments proceeded under their gracious direction.

Despite her unwillingness to perform Whitehouse duties, and despite her husband's overall misfortunes in office, Mrs. Pierce was generally respected by other ladies, especially those involved in the growing Temperance Movement.
