Dhaniztha-Delphinus * Vasu
For Dhaniztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.
Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear [Shani] which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.
Hierarchical Power Climber
Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These men are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-directed and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.
Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.
Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Like genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniztha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and dominated by men.
Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-lands-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.
Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.
Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.
Themes of band-of-brothers, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration,winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87
"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.
It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.
They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

Distinctive features of the Nativity |
During Chandra-Guru bhukti, Johnson's father died when little Andrew was four years old. The family, already of limited means, was plunged into dire poverty. Surya in bhava-12 = father invisible to the native.
Mom later remarried and AJ formed a mutually supportive relationship with stepdad. 8th-from-Surya (stepdad) = Karkata-7 ruled by Chandra-5, suggesting a favorable stepdad.
Surya-yuti-Budha-12 = behind-the-scenes activity in the typical smoke-filled-room. Surya gets provocative, argumentative drishti from Mangala-Kanya-9
MOTHER * Chandra in classroom-5 mutual drishti Shani-11
Mom survived in harsh circumstances, raising her children on the pittance she earned as a washerwoman. Shani drishti into Chandra imposes an emotionally sensitive survival narrative.
Laundering was considered a less than respectable trade (associated with prostitution). Chandra activates 7 alliances and Rahu-10 in 6th-from-Chandra indicate that mom's tough times did not damage her ambitious spirit. Mom would have enjoyed politics and encouraged AJ in it. Chandra in classroom-5
AJ did not look like his siblings. It was rumored that AJ was not actually the son of the deceased purported father Surya in bhava-12 (invisible father). Benefitting much from yogakaraka Zukra-1, AJ was apparently much more outspoken, smarter, and quicker than his younger brother. However, neither AJ nor his mom were constrained by public opinion. To avoid wagging tongues, they moved West.
Mom's circumstances improved when she left Raleigh and moved with AJ to Greeneville. As her son's tailoring business, real-estate portfolio, and political career flourished, she rose in dignity. Shani drishti into uttama-Chandra = Both mother and wife were vigilant, steady supporters of their son and husband.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
Shani in Bhava-11 contains hard-working, change-resisting, stubborn, gainful, determined Shani. Eliza McCardle was 16 when she married Andrew Johnson age 18.
AJ had a trade (tailor). Eliza's father had been the town shoemaker. AJ and Eliza had shared roots in the small-trade classes. They were married for 56 years (Shani endurance) and died within 5 months of each other. Yet, they had long separations = Shani. The longest separation = eight years, due to a geography which is today a moderate commute was was then difficult and draining by carriage on rough roads/
Eliza did not accompany AJ on his many political travels. When AJ became POTUS-17 following Lincoln's assassination, Eliza did move into the Whitehouse. Yet claiming ill health, Eliza stayed in her bedroom for his entire term of office. Shani resists new environments. Their adult daughter hostessed the required social entertainments.
Chandra-5 politics rules 7-alliances, deals, brokerage
Overall, Johnson was able to craft more agreement in extremely high-conflict situations than many of his political peers, and his "bring slavery back" treachery was not significant enough to damage the Union.
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 was career broker of agreement among some very disagreeable people, and as a rather accidental president he at least kept the North and the South in communication.
Johnson actively instigated political arguments (Mangala-Kanya-9) and won them with sharp, aggressive, debating skills. * Mangala-Kanya-9 aggressive speech drishti to bhava-12 Surya-yuti-Budha + 3 + 4

Budha also rules 9 = 12th-from-10th dissolution of the boss. In 1864 AJ-the-Southern-unionist was selected as the unifying compromise running mate for Abraham Lincoln's re-election campaign.
Less than six weeks after the start of his second term of office, POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. AJ became POTUS-17 the next day. Although some believe AJ to be implicated in Lincoln's assassination, Harsha Yoga protected AJ from criminal accusation.
Guru in bhava-2 two families
During Chandra-Guru bhukti, when little AJ was 3 years old, his father died in an accident The already poor family was thrust into dire straits. 04-Jan-1812 grieved the decease of father * Chandra-Guru bhukti * Guru activates 7th-from-9th. Father's decease opened the way for mother's remarriage and childhood second family.
AJ produced five children via his Euro-American wife Eliza. AJ was legally married only once, never divorced, and his wife Eliza died five months after him. It was rumored that Johnson also fathered three children with his African-American house-slave Dolly who AJ purchased when Dolly was age 14.
Because Dolly's three children had Euro-white features, the townsfolk assumed that their father was Dolly's owner Andrew Johnson. However, AJ's Zukra having no companion graha = Zukra-1 alone in Makara-1 the evidence would not come from Zukra-1 appearance
Lagnesha Shani drishti to Zukra-1, Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra, and Eliza ignored the situation. Rogesha Budha-12 may engage with servants and alcohols, Guru-2 indicates multiple families, offering some justification for the popular belief about Dolly and her children.
Benevolent Brihaspati occupies Kumbha-2 = the regulatory, social-authoritative 10th-from-Chandra-5 politics
Johnson's entire adult life after age 35 was dedicated to regulatory, legislative governance work. He held no salaried or appointed governance positions. All of his power came from popular (Kumbha) elections.
For nearly four decades. AJ cultivated a loyal plebian (Kumbha) constituency of poor white farmers, merchants, and skilled craftsmen Their economic (Kumbha) opportunities in their opinion were improved by legalizing race-based slavery.
In town, state, and national government roles, AJ functioned as the mouthpiece (2) spokesman (2) for his special constituency, the mass (Kumbha) of poor white tradesman, farmers, and merchants who hated the planter elites but wanted to maintain slavery as a tool they could use for future (Kumbha) social mobility.
AJ's loyal base was significantly non-literate, as AJ had been before his wife taught him how to read printed texts. He could read a pattern for cutting a garment, he could read the weather patterns, and he could read facial expressions like most men of his time, but he learned to read written texts only after marriage. Lacking literacy, many members of this electorate received their religious and political views from sermons of itinerant preachers.
The preachers often claimed that the US-Constitution was based on the Bible (false) and that the Bible declared white men to be divinely chosen masters of the Earth (claim not found in Bible). Similar to the also falsely Bible-based doctrine of Manifest Destiny (which had justified widespread killing of native peoples to facilitate Euro-American settlement) the doctrine of Biblically authorized slavery was deeply believed by most of AJ's longtime supporters.
AJ's lifetime loyal constituency ensured his unbroken record of 35 years never a lost election. Their beliefs [Guru] generally were driven by economics (Kumbha) but justified by faith [Guru]. Many of these white male voters were unshakably convinced of their Bible-based natural right to use their divinely provided race advantage for marketplace fain.
Johnson had risen in social status (Rahu-10) by means of slavery, starting from the most dire poverty and ending with substantial wealth as a slave-labor agricultural plantation owner and landowner. Despite its basis in false exegesis due mainly to poor literacy, this conviction was shared by AJ himself, and he spent a lifetime defending it.

Zukra yogakaraka activates 5-politics + 10 leadership
Zukra activates governance roles Rahu-10-Tula

Zukra-Makara-1 rules bhava-10 leadership = 6th-from-Chandra-Rohini-5
Tula-10 containing Rahu-10.
This is a complex alcoholism situation, because Rahu-10 indicates a capable and ambitious leader .
Zukra-1 is a powerful yogakaraka ruler of 5 + 10 and in bhava-1 it indicates a Natural governing politician.
The outcome cannot be completely debilitating. In modern parlance, AJ would likely 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.
Johnson was not only a known alcoholic but he was also a vigorous defender of the legality (Makara) of slavery.
Zukra-Makara-1 = well placed in Makara granting attractive, well-balanced bone structure. In a masculine nativity, Zukra ruling 6th-from-Chandra may indicate illness and dissatisfaction of the wife . Eliza McCardle suffered from lingering tuberculosis.
Eliza diligently supported his career by local friendships. Evidenced by the strategic support position of her Chandra-Vrischika (Jyeṣtha) overlaid into Johnson's bhava-11local [Chandra] networking (11). Nevertheless, AJ never once came home during the years 1861-1869. Eliza remained in Greeneville during his multi-decade career, not accompanying him on political duties but remaining in touch by letter.
She died five months after AJ's death..

Shani impacts Zukra ++ Chandra = immovable wife
During AJ's three years in the Whitehouse 1865-1868, wife Eliza McCardle suffered from tuberculosis. She rarely emerged from her room. Johnson's elder adult daughters performed the required hostess duties for AJ's social entertainments.
Impeachment Proceedings * shani-Zukra bhukti : Oct-1868 until Dec-1869
During the typically stalemated Shani-Ketu bhukti 1865-1866, Johnson was entrenched in an uncooperative attitude due to his eccentric view of property rights (Ketu-4). He simply disregarded (Ketu) Congressionally approved 14-15-16 Constitutional Amendments.
AJ hired-and-fired capriciously, dissolving those who disagreed with him.
He was impeached by an angry Congress. However despite being a very unpopular figure considered treasonous by some, Johnson was exonerated by one vote. Bribery by whiskey interests was suspected, but never proved, in obtaining the key vote. Zukra alcohols, Zukra cash.
Shani-11occupies Shani-ruled anuradha * raised in harsh poverty .
As was common in the day among working-class families, the illiterate young Andrew was indentured by his mother and stepfather as a bonded apprentice to a tailor. He is the only tailor ever to have become a POTUS. Way to Wealth 1706-1790 printer ambassador Benjamin Franklin was also indentured by his parents to a printer; albeit the printer who purchased young Benjamin's labor was Benjamin's much older step-brother. AJ did learn the basics of tailoring, but he was mistreated and illegally ran away.
Shani-4 drishti into Zukra-6 + Chandra-10 + Simha-lagna = a hard worker, and Shani's drishti into Zukra-6 keeps the incipient alcoholism under disciplined control
AJ's fiercely loyal commitment to the welfare of the small-farmer and petty-tradesmen formed the career-long basis of his appeal. He campaigned and voted on this principle, earning the love of the white "mechanics" class of tradesmen and sharecroppers throughout Tennessee and the Appalachian south. However, one plank in this platform was that the social mobility of this poor class depended on preventing the economic ascension of their competitors, the black freedmen. Then as now, this class of citizens holds fiercely racist tenets designed to keep potential competitors in their place. Johnson's pro-slavery rhetoric = Shani in Bhava-4 ruled by complaining, arguing Kuja-Kanya-2 drishti iinto Mula-Budha-5.
1865-1868 * bitterly controversial term of office with Congressional impeachment * = Shani-Zukra until Shani-Rahu
Shani-4 resists change in the foundational social order * Yet, the terrible war had been waged to make that change
Like many extremely poor Whites, Johnson felt economic urgency to oppress the class immediately below his, which was the even poorer Black slaves. After the Civil War, the huge unskilled illiterate class of Black Freedpersons were granted citizenship by the US Congress, but Johnson (along with many Poor Whites) did not want slavery to end and he certainly did not want ex-slaves (male only) to vote.
Johnson proposed and promoted contradictory and unpopular policies especially on matters of citizenship for freed slaves Supporters abandon him, hostile Congress, impeachment proceedings begin
Chandra-10 sentimentally popular figure mutual drishti to Shani-4 anti-change
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. His failures are mainly attributed to his outright non-compliance with the federal laws that eradicated slavery and invested freed male slaves with the privileges and duties of American citizenship (Shani-4 resists change in the local social order).
He was joined in the de facto refusal to end slavery by most white southerners and thus he remained fairly popular throughout the South despite having sided with the Union during the Civil War. Overall during his 40-year political career, folks either really liked Johnson or they really disliked him, with very little middle opinion.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
Rahu-Tula-10 lifetime political career
Johnson enjoyed a political career spanning 43 years, from 1834 until 1875. He won nearly every election, often by very small margins. He was a hero of the white small-holders, and he said that he disliked the antebellum Big-Money southern planter class. Although he did not socialize overly, was said to have been always impeccably attired (Tula).
Rahu in bhava-10 ruled by Zukra-1 = elite roles anti-elite narrative = leader of the poor white demographic
* Zukra-1rules leadership Chandra-Rohini-5 activates 10th-from-10th alliances ++ Rahu-10 in sita-rashi Thula.
From the beginning of his political career, Johnson saw himself as the voice of the poor white (Zukra-sita) southern farmers and tradesmen. He was himself a child of this demographic. 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 uplift (10) his segment of the population, and he was willing to expediently reinterpret the law of the land in order to fulfill his ambition.
* leadership appeal to exploitation, slavery, victim-class
Rahu Mahadasha * age 17 until age 35
Due to Rahu's ruler, the powerful yogakaraka Zukra-1, Johnson enjoyed an undeniable political charm. After learning to read fluently during Rahu-Rahu bhukti under the tutelage of his wife [Zukra] Eliza, the world opened to him. Perhaps calling upon skills from an alternate incarnation, Johnson especially loved classical Roman oratory (translated into English).
Rahu occupies the exploitive, instrumentalist 6th-from-Chandra
Johnson was entirely self-taught as an independent reader, and his critical thinking patterns reflected the fact that he had not participated in schooldays discussions. He simply made up his own mind without integrating or socially adjusting his views. He was considered a rough, stubborn, and vindictive fellow. His instrumentalist interpretation (3) of the US Constitution as providing a guarantee of the right to own slaves was reviled by many abolitionists as deceptive (Rahu) twisted (Rahu) thinking (3). However, he stuck with this interpretive position until his death.
At the onset of the exciting and socially mobile Rahu-Rahu svabhukti where Rahu is ruled by atmakaraka Zukra-6 ... and partly in response to the warrant for his arrest as an escaped bonded servant .... Johnson, his brother, his mother, and her second husband moved westward into the wilderness settlement frontier of Tennessee.
Walking into town after weeks in transit (walking and pulling their worldly goods behind in a wagon) Andrew met Eliza McCardle the daughter of a recently deceased local shoemaker. They both hailed from the Scots-Irish settler population and seemed to understand each other.
Rahu-Rahu svabhukti continues
He started to tailor and prospered. When he turned 18, AJ married 16-year-old Eliza. From that time, AJ would wear only the suits that he made himself. Despite his hard-scrabble background, Johnson cut a sharp figure in his nattily tailored attire. As POTUS, he would typically stop by any tailor-shop to say hello.
Furthermore, Eliza taught him to read, write and cipher with accuracy. He became a man of the world. * kalatra-karaka Zukra-6 rules Chandra-10 leadership and Rahu-3 business.
Shani-4 in 7th-from-Chandra grants a sober wife who is attuned to social hierarchies * atmakaraka Zukra-Makara
Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
CAREER - KETU
His mother (4) sold him into indentured servitude.
AJ was raised by his washerwomen mom who was socially stigmatized and very poor. He never attended school, and at age 10 Andrew was sold into indentured servitude with a local tailor.
Ketu's ruler Mangala-Kanya-8 occupies 6th-from-Ketu-4, suggesting exploitation in childhood. Eventually Johnson amassed a valuable portfolio of frontier real-estate. He never forgot his hardscrabble childhood, and became a political champion of the lowest smallholders.
