Aryaman * 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 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. (1939). 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."
USA Civil War Brigadier General James Garfield (age 34) c. 1865. Library of Congress.

features of the Nativity |
Dad died during young James' infancy. Surya ruler-12 ++ Surya occupies 8th-from-Chandra
atmakaraka (patriotism, defense of way-of-life)
Mom was, by all accounts, an extraordinarily capable woman.
She was a salient influence in JG's life.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
Lucretia Randolph was an educated, independent woman according to historians. The couple were often apart due to JAG's duties.
During Rahu-Shani bhukti, his 1862-1863 affair-du-coeur with a New York City lady disrupted the marriage. Shani rules 5-romance. Lucretia agreed to reconcile. After the family reunited in Washington DC, when the pair were seen together, observers said that they seemed to enjoy the mutual company. They were apart when JAG was shot, but together when he died.
CAREER - KUJA
Kuja typically presents a growth-challenge for Kanya nativities, due to risky intense passions.
JAG's not-so-secret multi year passionate affair during the Civil War, and the likelihood of other intrigues, caused his political handlers to take action.
Mangala rules 8 ++ 8th-from-8
Kuja rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra
He gained a reputation as a dynamic political orator (Kuja-2)
Budha in bhava-3 = lagnesha + karmesha
Budha rules 3rd-from-Chandra communications ++ 6th-from-Chandra war, conflict, disgrace
Beginning his first Congressional term of office during Rahu-Budha bhukti, JAG served nine consecutive terms (18 years) 1863-1880.
CAREER - GURU
Guru rules Meena-Svamsha
Guru rules the 10th navamsha * Dhanuzya preaching, wisdom, ideology, paradigms of belief
Political boost from mutual drishti between Brihaspati ++ Rahu
Generous Guru rules 10th-from-10th.
Not always pleased with peers and partners.
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
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
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.
Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)
Harsha Yogaallows him to avoid negative social consequences from bitter slavery conflict (6) political corruption (6) war (6) and the marriage betrayal (6) of a notable extramarital affair.
CAREER - SHANI
Shani occupies emotionally-driven genius 5th from Chandra = restricted, retarded, delayed, structured, status-seeking, disciplined, austere, elegant, limited creativity that responded first and foremost to the requirements of the social order
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
Political boost from mutual drishti between Brihaspati ++ Rahu
Passion for education
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.
