Nirriti * Alaxmi
For Mula births of a masculine 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.
Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.
Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.
Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.
In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.
Mūla's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom. Yet, the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos have equal utility to compassion and love.
Because Alakshmi-born preach their principles while dismissing [Ketu] the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.
When involved in religious or political indoctrination, [Mūla] born may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti [no-rhythm] may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.
Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.
mūla] born may suffer from restless windiness [vata dosha] .
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
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 86.
"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,
An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences
The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;
Extremely clever and capable." [end quote]
Andrew Johnson in 1856, painted by William Brown Cooper
Johnson, a former tailor, was said to have been always impeccably dressed
eldest daughter of Andrew Johnson, Martha Johnson Patterson, served as the First Lady for her father. Her mother Eliza McCardle Johnson lived in a Whitehouse bedroom, but mom was too sick to entertain.
Known as a pleasant but frugal hostess, Martha introduced a herd of milk-cows to pasture on the Whitehouse lawn.

Jacob also was a militia Captain of Muster Division 20, a sexton for the Presbyterian Church, and a porter for the State Bank of North Carolina [chartered in 1811] .

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Eliza McCardle was 16 when she married Andrew Johnson age 18.
At 17, AJ had moved to Eliza's town with an established skill as a tailor. Eliza's father had been the town shoemaker. AJ and Eliza had shared roots in the small-trade classes. AJ opened a garment shop. His work was well regarded, and the shop prospered.
After emancipation, his former slave Dolly opened a successful bakery in the same shop.
Shani in Bhava-12 in 7th-from-Chandra
Endurance and retreat
AJ and Eliza were married for 56 years. They died within 5 months of each other.
Separation and obligation
AJ never once came home during the years 1861-1869. [his age 53 until 61]
The stated reason was geography from Washington D.C. to Greeneville
Suffering a multi-decade battle with tuberculosis, Eliza was often bedridden [Shani-12 isolation, sanctuary]. She did not accompany AJ on his many political travels.
Political Mulatrikona Chandra in Krittika-6
= comfortable with conflict
Overall, Johnson managed the extremely high-conflict post-war anger better than many of his political peers.
Even AJ's bring slavery back treachery  was not significant enough to damage the Union. [Sarala Yoga] prevented his impeachment.
AJ was not the great healer who was truly needed in that awful chaotic era full of seething wounds and distrust of brother by brother.
Nevertheless, he kept the wheels of government churning during an era of violent frustration and grief-stricken blaming  . As a rather accidental president, AJ at least kept the North and the South in post-traumatic communication.
Guru in 10th-from-Chandra
suggests that AJ's career was based on his ability to fill a guidance role promoting doctrine, belief, and exegesis of scripture [see Guru section below] .
Although he was a false prophet promoting baseless legal and moral claims, AJ's constituency very much believed his assertions about their God-given, Constitutional right to own slaves.

[dik-bala] Mangala-10 rules 5-politics
Johnson enjoyed a lifetime political career spanning 43 years, from town alderman age 26 in 1834 until his death age 67 in 1875, following an extremely narrow win for a Senate seat.
Despite his being a capable mayor, state legislator, US-Senator and Tennessee-Governor, most scholars rank Andrew Johnson as the single worst POTUS in history.
AJ was joined in the de facto refusal to end slavery by most white southerners. Despite having sided with the Union during the Civil War, he remained fairly popular throughout the South.

In 1864, at time of terrible anger and stress in the post-war nation, AJ-the-Southern-unionist was chosen as a compromise candidate  for Lincoln's VPOTUS.
However, Mula-Budha betrayed Lincoln's expectation that AJ would soothe the alienated Southern vote.

OUTCOMES - KUMBHA
Kumbha-3 lagnesha Guru rules
bhava-3 commerce, craft
Believing Brihaspati occupies commercial Kumbha-3
Johnson's entire adult life after age 35 was dedicated to regulatory, legislative governance work.
For nearly four decades. AJ cultivated a loyal plebian [Kumbha] constituency of poor white farmers  merchants  and skilled craftsmen 
AJ's political career was largely focused on the single issue of whether the Constitution protected the right to keep slaves.
AJ's loyal base was significantly non-literate, as AJ had been before his wife taught him how to read and cypher.
Many of the preachers also could not read. They relied on Passion and Inspiration [Guru] to guide their words.
This word-of-mouth doctrine also included a purportedly Biblical mandate called Manifest Destiny, which had justified widespread killing of native peoples who were seen as preventing Euro-American settlement.
The doctrines of Manifest Destiny which authorized killing of native peoples, and the doctrine of Biblically authorized slavery, were deeply cherished beliefs of most of AJ's longtime supporters.
AJ was believable.
The base could relate to AJ.
Before marriage, AJ could read a garment-cutting pattern, he could read signs of the seasonal weather, and he could read facial expressions like most men of his time. But he could not thoroughly read and understand the written word.
After marriage and literacy, Johnson himself had risen in social mobility by means of slavery.
In town, state, and national government roles, AJ represented this constituency, the mass [Kumbha] of poor white tradesman, farmers, and merchants.
MUTUAL DRISHTI OF GURU-3 with RAHU-11
35 years in political office -- never a lost election.
Opportunistic Rahu in bhava-11 occupies Tula 6th-from-Chandra, suggesting that AJ found his best profits via modes of exploitation, lying, misrepresentation, and war.

[Atmakaraka] relationships, agreement, alliances, finance, negotiation, equity, justice, contracts, deal-making [svabhava]
[Dhanayoga Shukra-2 rules-11]
[hierarchical rank keeps library-treasury-hoard]
OUTCOMES - SHUKRA
AJ produced five children into his marriage wife Eliza. They married when he was 18 and she was 16. AJ was legally married only once, never divorced, and his wife Eliza died five months after him.
It was rumored that AJ also fathered three children with his African-American house-slave Dolly, who was purchased by AJ when Dolly was age 19. Because Dolly's three children had Euro-white features, the townsfolk assumed that their father was Dolly's owner, the tailor Andrew Johnson.
However, AJ's Shukra having no companion graha, Jyotishavidya would suggest only one wife whether by ceremony or by childbirth.
The death certificate for Dolly's third child lists Robert Johnson = AJ's son = as the father.
Wife's taste [Shukra] in scriptural, oratorical, historical values
AJ enjoyed a 50+-year marriage to Eliza McCardle.
Although Eliza was often ill and by personality the retiring type, she coached AJ in literacy and numeracy skills. When he could read well enough to understand Roman historical debates, Eliza encouraged AJ's oratorical instincts [Shukra-2]. He became one of the top orators in Congress.
Eliza offered her values-based opinions  to which he wisely listened. Eliza was known for her dour and punitive religious outlook [Shani drishti to Shukra-2]based on her pessimistic reading of scripture. Although AJ was not a believer, he was able to cultivate a voter-base of believers, at least partly by citing the scriptures which Eliza liked.
Shukra-Makara is known for its architectural bone structure = found often in fashion models. Andy was considered well-dressed via his tailoring skills, and handsome in a frontier way.
Shukra-2 imbibing rules both 6-Urisha ++ 6th-from-6 Tula-11.
In modern parlance, AJ might be categorized as a high-functioning alcoholic. The disease pattern  was apparently embedded in the family line. AJ's fourth child, son Robert, also suffered from alcoholism. Robert committed suicide his age 35. [All three of AJ's sons predeceased him.]
Impeachment Proceedings * Shani-Shukra bhukti : Oct-1868 until Dec-1869
Shukra alcohol, Shukra cash
AJ was impeached by an angry Congress. However, despite being a very unpopular figure considered treasonous by some, Johnson was exonerated by one vote in the Senate. AJ was a long-time recipient of campaign funds from the Tennessee whiskey industry, which lobbied hard to reduce liquor taxes. Bribery by whiskey interests was suspected, but never proved, in obtaining the key vote.

After the Civil War, the huge unskilled illiterate class of Black Freedpersons were granted citizenship by the US Congress

OUTCOMES - RAHU
Opportunistic, instrumentalist, high-earnings Rahu-11 is well-placed in the high-conflict, exploitive [6th-from-Chandra].
Rahu-11 the Marketplace Savior-Hero
From the beginning of his political career, Johnson saw himself as the impassioned [Rahu] voice of the poor white [Shukra-sita] southern farmers and tradesmen. AJ himself was a child of this immigrant Ulster Scots demographic [along with many other POTUS] .
This poor-white population represented a majority of the Euro settlers in the southern states. Despite their citizen majority, their impecunious status allowed them little influence on the plutocratic elites that controlled the political parties.
AJ ascribed to himself an almost messianic agenda [Rahu] to bring economic prosperity  to this segment of the population, and he was willing to expediently reinterpret the law of the land in order to fulfill his ambition.
