Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman

Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram


BPL commentary

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.


Brilliantly dramatic

Simha - Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi 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 according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi 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. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83


"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

  • Garfield generally disliked POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln.. JAG referred disrespectfully to Lincoln (the walk-in) as a "second rate Illinois lawyer".
  • After Lincoln's assassination, perhaps realizing the impact that Lincoln would have upon history regardless of his personality, JG began praising his former adversary.

Mother's divorce = 6th-from-Chandra

Garfield's mother, to whom he was deeply attached, remarried to support her five children . However, Garfield notoriously disliked the man. During an era when divorce caused socially punitive high scandal, unfairly demonizing the woman, he nevertheless supported his mother unconditionally. During her divorce, JAG claimed that his step-father was abhorrent and abusive.

Later, his own marriage was headed toward divorce, endangering his political career. Pundits opined that had he survived the assassination, Garfield would have suffered political ignominy due to his romantic multiplicities and impending divorce from his unhappy wife.

Partnership distant and tense * ill wife * political liabilities

Nichha-Zukra receives dissociating but multiplying drishti from nichha-Guru-yuti-Ketu

  • He was raised in hard-scrabble poverty in Ohio's Western Reserve, a semi-wilderness.

  • It is recorded that Garfield was at home for only five months during the first five years of his marriage.
  • The couple had seven children, five surviving.

Disharmony and disagreement in the marriage, due inter alia to active discord regarding the exclusivity contract (Mangala male sexual energy). Much compounded by kalatra-karaka Zukra- nichha

  • POTUS-20 Universal Education 1831-1881 James Garfield * nichha-Zukra-Kanya-5 . Garfield was a tall, intelligent man with military prestige + a gift for political oratory. His family-oriented wife Lucretia Rudolph was his former student, which began the relationship on a keynote of inequality (nichha-Zukra unequal). The mother of five, Lucretia was frequently ill.

  • During Garfield's decades-long national political career, Lucretia stayed in Ohio with their children while Garfield lived a majority of his time in Washington D.C.

  • Despite regularly declaring his Christian values (mainly in political context of abolishing slavery) Garfield developed extramarital relationships, including a notable romance with a New York woman.

  • 1862 during a lengthy stay in Washington D.C. while awaiting a military assignment, a long-term extramarital affair nearly destroyed Garfield's marriage

  • His marriage struggles became public, and despite Garfield's strong governance abilities it seemed that his path to POTUS would be blocked by the scandal of divorce, following in the footsteps of his mother's own contentious divorce.

  • Political spin doctors convinced Garfield to end his illicit romance which allowed them to sanitize his reputation, and thus he won the POTUS-20 election.

  • Based on JAG's behavior patterns, scholars speculate that had Garfield survived his assassination in 1881, he might have experienced sex scandals similar to POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding ++ POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton ++ UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales, all of whom also have nichha-Zukra in 6th-from-Chandra.

Appearance

  • Physically tall, strong, and handsome. = Guru drishti into Zukra-1. Attractive to women,

Nichha-Zukra 6th-from-Chandra * medical treatments

emotional toxicity encourages infections

James Garfield did not die from the gunshot wounds from his assassin's gun. JAG died of blood poisoning after doctors and experts (including Alexander Graham Bell) tried to remove the bullet from his back with their dirty fingers and instruments

The horrible infection caused JAG to linger in pain for 80 days before dying of cardiac arrest due to septic toxicity. His assassin, the delusional Charles Guiteau, later claimed that he didn't kill the president -- the doctors had.

JAG and his four siblings were raised in poverty by a single manually-laboring mother in the culturally isolated rural region then known as Ohio's Western Reserve. He was on track to become just another hard-working laborer when he received a series of remarkable educational opportunities via Rahu the Opportunist. Garfield's career began to escalate at the beginning of Rahu Mahadasha, and throughout his decades in public office, he supported the concept of government-funded education for all citizens and their families regardless of race or creed (Rahu the Mixer).

Received a remarkably strong liberal education considering the weak foundation of his upbringing. His New England college acculturation made JAG a passionate abolitionist who believed that the Civil War was a religious crusade against the evils of slavery.

  • POTUS-20 Universal Education 1831-1881 James Garfield * Garfield was a youth schoolteacher and college professor before he studied law and entered politics in his 30th year.
