Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram
For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed. [Can be counterbalanced by a cool moon.]
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.
Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatra-pati Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.
Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician of international ability, according to the strengths of nakshatra-pati Surya.
Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.
Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.  . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83
"A proud and arrogant disposition,
Uttara natives are extremely intelligent
but because of their inordinate pride,
and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Surya in bhava-3 rules 12
CAREER - SURYA
Surya activates Uttaraphalguni Svamsha
Surya in bhava-3 advertising, political SPIN
matrikaraka [mother] * garha-karaka [village]
TENSION in CAREER
bhava-4 = 6th-from-Chandra, suggesting emotional conflict regarding agricultural plantations, property ownership and patriotism.
Often a preference for avoiding the inevitable home conflict by spending most time away from home.
Mom was the mother of eight and step-mother of one.
MARRIAGE partnerships support expectations
Makara-mate Jane Appleton was said to dislike political life.
Makara 6/8 from Simha-political displays, gaudy entertainments
the daughter of a former president of FP's undergraduate college Bowdoin. 9th-from-7th-from-Chandra = Makara-5 = Kanya, FP's indriya lagna
Chandra in Aśleṣa 6/8 from Chandra-Mula - Mula Misery
According to historians, FP often expressed frustration with the marriage.
Fixed Challenges to the Alliance
Jane Appleton Chandra in Mūla
Sober heaviness of Shani
Shani-yuti-Shukra-[nīcha] 1 = rulers of 2 + 5 + 6 + 9
5 + 9 = Jane's college-president father had secured a rare college education for her. Jane somberly contributed her studied convictions to the temperance [anti-alcohol] movement and the anti-slavery movement.
Sadly, she suffered from chronic melancholy and tuberculosis.
Ketu afflicts his Chandra + her Mula
bhratru-karaka [brother] * virya-karaka [virile]
CAREER - MANGALA
Mangala is often a trouble-maker for the Kanya indriya-lagna
Mangala activates Mesha-8 = reputation-defining 10th-from-Chandra FP's leadership was forever identified with the catastrophic carnage [Mesha-8] of the war of brother-against-brother
Mangala in bhava-11 rules
Nica-Mangala rules 3 = 6th-from-10 = inherent conflict between top-rank vision of the high positions versus the detail-focused, process management of bhava-3.
Inconsistent actions Kuja-yuti-Ketu
Caught in a violent [Kuja] and unsustainable [Ketu] political conflict
Like all of the POTUS who served during the 20 years preceding the US Civil War [antebellum period] Pierce was trapped in the extremely polarized slavery debate [3 discussions].
As the decades progressed without federal anti-slavery legislation, the moral furor of the North battled [Kuja] the financial-cultural customs of the South.
Northern supporter of Southern slavery
Famed for often changing his mind on the subject of slavery, FP's emotionally disengaged chronic indecision Somana-yuti-Ketu helped to bring on the Civil War.
Pierce's inability to hold a moral position created suspicion among his friends.
Dysfunctional Indecision has disastrous consequences 
Most historians squarely blame FP for outright incompetence.
Clutching Aśleṣa-Mangala ++ apathetic legalistic Pushya-Ketu
Regardless of consequences [Ketu] FP ignored the northern outrage [[nīcha] Kuja] while protecting the financial  entitlements of rich slave-owners.
Terrible Grief = 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 that 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.
jamayah-karaka [sibling] * sandeza-karaka [message] * zisya-karaka [student]
CAREER - BUDHA
Budha in bhava-3 [svabhava] rules
Budha karmesha occupies 3-discussions, meetings, commerce
Budha-yuti-Surya rules 12-international
dhavakaraka * bahuta-kara
Atmakaraka worldview, philosophy, expansion, understanding, doctrine, preaching, beliefs, ideology
CAREER - GURU
Before entering politics, FP was a successful New England attorney who accepted glamorous cases [Rahu-5 display] and delighted the gallery with his dramatic speeches [Guru-2]
He was considered a fine orator and colleagues remember his distinctively deep voice.
Although passive-aggressive in his actions within the assembly [[nīcha] Kuja-11] ideologically Pierce was not neutral on the topic of slavery.
Guru-2 rules 4+7 property
Guru occupies 4th navamsha
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.
Guru in bhava-2 rules 4 + 7 property, land-deeds, fencing, settlement
suggests that there would be a second alliance, finally fulfilling FP's expectations of a thriving partnership == albeit late in life due to Shukra-yuti-Shani.
Guru activates 10th navamsha Dhanus = national level profile associated with matters of ideological conviction
svadu-karaka [sweet] * kalatra-karaka [wifely companion]
CAREER - SHUKRA
despite FP's solid previous experience in law practice [Shani] + 10 years in US Congress, scholars criticize him for undercutting his own alliances [[nīcha] Shukra]
Most of Pierce's key advising and supporting relationships were broken by vargottamsha [nīcha] Shukra.
Marriage = Stubbornly enduring, weighted, profoundly unhappy
Navamsha-7 contains vargottamsha Shukra [nīcha] ++ Ketu ++ Surya ++ [uchcha] Budha
They disagreed [Kanya] on all of the important social policy issues of their day.
Shukra-yuti-Shani suggests two marriages
Shukra [nīcha] + Shani [Shani delay] ++ socially un-avowed [nichha Shukra] .
duro-karaka [endurance] * jara-karaka [years]
[rogesha for Kanya indriya-lagna]
[vidya-pati for Kanya indriya-lagna]
[strict rules for approved action]
[obligation to make formal movements]
[identified with intractable conflicts]
[unbalanced social pressure upon physical appearance]
[self-discipline applied to disagreeable tasks]
[chronic personality disorder]
CAREER - SHANI
Antebellum POLITICS of legality of slavery
As 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 abuses.
FP favored the plantation owner's legal claims that human slaves were property not persons.
Despite his wife Jane Appleton [and most of the North] demanding federal slavery-abolition as a non-negotiable moral mandate, FP became indecisive and unclear in his slavery policy.
Shani-1 rules political-circus Rahu-5
FP maintained the facade of political activity, but almost nothing was accomplished due to intractable conflict [Shani]
The weight of incumbency notwithstanding, his unreliable stance caused FP's political party [Rahu-5] to unexpectedly withdraw their nomination for his second term..
Rahu usually has a Big Up and a Big Down. Expecting to continue with a second presidential term, the party's refusal to run him caught FP by surprise.
rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] * picchala-karaka [slippery]
CAREER - RAHU
passion for politics, fame, political campaigns, display
DRISHTI Rahu in bhava-5
Rahu Mahadasha * age 51.7 until decease age 64 = 1856-1869
After a meteoric rise during Chandra + Mangala Mahadasha, collapse during Rahu ++ late-life romance 
Unusual political people, extraordinary circumstances
Rahu-Makara the Illusionist = spin-doctors at work
ambitious heights, smoky impressions * Makara = governance takes drishti of both Mangala [war] and Chandra [patriotism, paternalism]
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.
Rahu is exciting, but burdened. Ruler Shani-1 evokes both 5 and 6 [disagreements, broken promises, unbalance]
Rahu = over-reaching interpretations of the Law * Makara
Opportunistic legal interpretation was a key factor in Pierce's disastrous POTUS-14 administration.
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.
FP pushed back [Mangala] against the abolitionists' moral outrage.
Shock and Fall during Rahu-Rahu svabhukti
The reasons for Pierce's sudden disfavor are complex but they stem primarily from incompletely substantiated accusations.
Ketu * * * kavandha-karaka [headless] * chidra-karaka [gaping] * vasana-karaka [vacuum]
CAREER - KETU
FP had some odd friends.
[nīcha] Mangala-yuti-Ketu dispersal [Ketu dispersal] of dynamic progress [Kuja] reinforced FP's negative reputation for cowardice in battle. [Mangala battle]
Pulverizing, dispersing Ketu provided an infelicitously passive-aggressive mix
Ketu in classroom-11 dissolves goals, achievements, social networks, marketplace associations. Abandoned by friends.
Temperance Movement leader
POTUS-14 pair Jane Appleton Pierce * 1806-1863
POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce
Mūla * 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 Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla

"... 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,
