Hasta - Savitri - Athram
For Hasta births of a masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Pundarikaksa, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Corvus. Their purpose= making secure nests to soothe, protect, and nourish the workers.
Savitra -born fellows are often found in handcraft trades, home-building and real-estate, in caretaking and protective roles, or in specialties of nourishment, sheltering, schoolteaching, policing, or local safety. Their purpose is supporting the local welfare. Typically masculine births in Hasta indicate a comfortable, grounded focus into the home realms including parenting, gardening, and environmental care.
All four pada occur within Kanya rashi. Athram-born express the tension between the handy busy-ness of mental, commercial Budha versus the emotionally based, calming routines of non-verbal Chandra.
Known for their skillful handwork, Hasta are found in service professions where daily communications and family-style conversations are engaged in a routine of protective, sustaining care.
Hasta chaps are socially reliable and available emotionally due to Chandra influence. This nice combination wins them many friends and long-term business customers. Hasta are specialists in customer care. Once they have established a relationship whether personal or professional, the Athram-born values consistency and loyalty.
Generally not risk-takers unless Rahu is prominent in the nativity. Hasta fellows tend to be engaged parents, restaurateurs, home builders, social workers, home health nurses, protection officers, schoolteachers, and supervisors of caretaking operations. Although their own family usually comes first, Hasta are concerned with the well-being of their complete natural and social environment.
Themes of manufacturing and handcraft, local business, housing and shelter, nourishment, and protective service may contextualize Hasta's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Hasta - Savitra
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.  . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 83
" ...clever, witty, and entertaining.
They like social contacts
When in trouble, go to a Hasta person;
but do not try to pull the wool over their eyes,
they are very likable and are good company,
Earliest known photo [daguerreotype] of Abraham Lincoln c. 1847, preparing to enter his first term in USA Congress, AL age 38
according to the collective Ra, the version of AL who assumed the crucial POTUS responsibilities was a walk-in from 4th density who assumed control of Lincoln's abandoned body-complex. The body was deteriorating quickly due to glandular imbalances and the long-term effect of having been kicked on the left side of his face by a horse as a boy.
Lincoln age 49 in 1858 = left-side face damage with down-slipping eye and jaw.
A Lincoln volunteered to serve in the Blackhawk War, fighting on the Euro-settlers' side. AL did not see active combat, but he was elected company leader and participated in burying the dead.

[political focus of marketplace complaint]
[systematic intelligence for economic lawsuits]
[celebrated entitlement to argue about systemic injustice]

Dad = a land speculator of fluctuating fortunes [Surya speculation] with big ideas, whose visions of grandeur occurred mainly in dad's imagination [Surya activates 12] .
Dad was said to have been harsh and dominating toward everyone, including his son
AL remarked that his father could be a predatory bully; and had it not been for the gentle and generous ministrations of his father's second wife [2nd-from-Surya = Guru-yuti-Shukra [uchcha] there might have been worse consequences.
Dad was willing [Surya] to harass and exploit his son .
Surya-yuti-Budha = Budha lagnesha + karmesha, suggesting that both dad and Abe would be capable of making executive decisions.
AL's father experienced many upheavals including widowhood  and disastrous financial loss from opportunistic land speculation gone wrong

Lincoln made several important improvement to the overall national economic and transportation systems. Although many POTUS must struggle against an obstructionist Congress, for Lincoln there was very little friction. Congress essentially gave him the economic programs that he asked for.
MOTHER  and BONUS-MOM 
Mom married young and worked hard.
AL recounted that he was deeply attached to his mother.
The bonus-mom [stepmother] according to AL was a dedicated supporter of AL's legal education and his professional career. AL reminisced about his bonus-mom with respect and appreciation for her encouragement and guidance.
Despite his father being a difficult influence, both moms were helpful and protective.

The Gettysburg Address is studied in American schools even today. AL is said to have written this famous address himself, not using a paid speechwriter which was the common practice then [and now] .
[Kuja-yuti-Rahu] drishti to Chandra * compelling, urgent, direct, rhythmic speeches
AL said that his mother [Chandra-rhythm] home-schooled him using the only available text, the King James English Bible. AL repeated the classic and familiar KJV prosody. He internalized the rhythms [Chandra] of 1600's English litany.

His childhood household relocated often. When Abe was nine, his mom died from tainted cowsmilk = Ketu gets Kuja-drishti.
According to the social-memory complex resonating to the syllable known as Ra http://www.llresearch.org, POTUS-16 was a psychic walk-in.
Arising to the top of the new Republican Party, seemingly out of the ethers of the Illinois wilderness
the persona of Lincoln produced a wave of surprising wisdom [Guru] and prosodic grace that overwhelmingly, positively, dramatically appealed greatly to an exhausted, demoralized, war-weary electorate.
By the beginning of Shani Mahadasha, the extreme makeover was complete.
Guru-Mangala bhukti 1853 * Kuja activates 8-identity transformation
1853 according to Ra, this year featured a walk-in from 4th density who assumed control of Lincoln's body-complex * Guru-Ketu bhukti
Ra reports that Lincoln was suffering from a debilitating illness, along with mental disorientation, depression, and marital conflict.
Repeating the denouement experienced 10,000 years previous in the Atlantean civilization, a collective social decision about slaveryry was imminent. This decision would be finalized via one of the most gruesome wars of human history. This decision would be emblazoned upon public memory for centuries.
In cooperation with this momentous agenda, before beginning his dark-horse campaign for POTUS-16, Mr. Lincoln's original personality exited his fleshbody and, by spiritual agreement, a specifically purposed replacement personality entered. The replacement personality was indeed an extension of his original self, but with more energy, more vision, and more guidance.
The obscure Congressmember from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln, had no widely recognized political identity.
Hence, it was relatively easy for the incoming spirit to transform the persona of a stuttering rural horseback-lawyer into an eloquent literature-quoting public orator.
That certainly was a sudden change.
The assassination of Abraham Lincoln took place at the appointed time of exit.
Although the Agents of Orion were not pleased, Lincoln's dematerialization effectively ended the post-Atlantean [American] debate about institutionally legalized slavery.
Recent medical research gives some credence to Ra's claim about Lincoln's suicidal despair. It is now understood that, during AL's era in history, the conditions of his genetically caused illness would have very likely resulted in a lifespan ending approximately at the time of the political assassination [AL age 56] .
