Yamuna - Apa-bharanishe - Varni
For Bharani births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, diplomacy, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Guidance provided by instructors from the civilizations of Apis. Their purpose is acquisition of treasuries, carrying of beautiful objects , and preservation of values across the generations.
Burdened Banker Busy Bee
[Shukra] -ruled Bharani masculine-figures are the Money Guys. Yamuna-born are often found in the worlds of banking, valuation, capital markets, currency-trading, mints and coinage.
Connoisseurs of pricing and aggressive deal-makers, they vigorously seek acquisition of precious objects. In addition to their financial abilities, due to their intuitive understanding of sound-and-color values, Bharani males may also pursue careers in music and arts. Most Bharani men can sing beautifully.
The harmonious arrangements of Apa-bharanishe may be lovely even while they vigorously compete for dominance. Their expertise in the fields of preservation, containment, and collecting may extend to wines, perfumes, fine textiles, works of art, and any commodity which may capitalize or increase in value.
Like all Shukra-governed births, they must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol.
Themes of competitive acquisition, precious sounds and song, and investment in cherished values may contextualize Bharani's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Bharani.

The morals of this man are not above reproach .
He will be distinguished in many cases by some slight physical defect
Famed Singer Ellen "Nell" Herndon Arthur
dematerialization 12-Jan-1880 [Nell age 42]
Nell Herndon was a notable singer, a beauty, entreasured, and hailing from a distinguished Virginia family.
CA married his young wife following the death of her sea-captain father in a celebrated marine accident. The father had safely transferred the women and children from his ship. Then dad drowned, as he " went down with the ship" -- an action considered then and now to demonstrate a highly noble character.
Unfortunately, their marriage occurred just at the opening of Civil War hostilities. While her northerner husband CA was an outspoken abolitionist, Nell favored the southern cause.
Despite clashing political loyalties, their New York City parties were society events and her lovely singing voice advanced Arthur's career within the Republican political machine.
Suddenly on 12-Jan-1880 at her age 42, Nell died of pneumonia [the disease of grief] .. She was the mother of three children [two living] . It was said that she died after years of neglect by CAA, who seemed unable to spend an evening at home due to his back-room political dealings, his drinking, and other chronic distractions. Nell died just before CAA began the VPOTUS job.
