Masculine Nativities


Kita - Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeṣṭha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares.

Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

[Budha] -ruled Jyeṣṭha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and energetic communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, apocryphal, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatra-pati Budha, often Jyeṣṭha -born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power.

In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists. Jyestha can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeṣṭha 's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeṣṭha - Antares

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

" A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

GC recounted that his dad was a restless, bullying preacher-teacher boss-of-the-house who produced a very large family. In modern psychological parlance, Dad might have been a textbook example of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Dad moved the entire household frequently in pursuit of greater glory. [Kuja-yuti-Chandra] [nicha] tends to be restless and emotionally driven.

[Aśleṣa-Kuja-9 karako bhavo nashto] + [Guru-9 karako bhavo nashto]

Surya-Meena-5 self-promotion receives drishti of [uchcha] Guru-9 preaching,

  • suggesting that the father had a great many children and he may have been almost unbearably self-righteous, guilt-inflicting, and aggressive

By GC's account, Dad cared much less for the well being of his nine children, and much more for their displays of pubic piety [9] .

  • Surya activates 10 social reputation, and 10 = 6th-from-Surya showing father's hypocritical misbehavior and mistreatment of the children as inconsistent with his public leadership.
  • [Guru-yuti-Chandra] [Old Pathways Karkata] = highly fertile as indicated by Cleveland's large sibling cohort.

Cleveland was 16 when his father died; an event recorded as providing a great relief from the father's narcissistic regime.

  • Surya in 6/8-from 10-Simha--svakshetra and Meena-Surya-5 suggest that the father's doctrinal convictions [9] were in conflict with his roles as teacher and parent.



Karmesha Surya-5 - which is also a navamsha Surya-Simha = politics occupies the celebrated, political, fortunate 9th-from-Chandra suggesting an easy life pathway into ideological beliefs, constant entertaining and attending celebrity events, and the ongoing party [5] of party-politics.

Feminine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatrical values of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

[Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Shukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, deal-brokering ability, and glamour in romantic relationships. Queenly and self-referential, they require equity in marriage and business contracts. Honesty is deeply important to them. Yet, due to Shukra's bargaining nature, the insult of disloyalty may be balanced by financial compensation.

Like all Shukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political and creative success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Shukra and Budha.

Themes of theatrical celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

FATHER and Father-Figures

Dad was a Buffalo attorney and close friend of Frankie's first husband POTUS-22-24 Interstate Commerce 1837-1908 Grover Cleveland. In those days, Buffalo was a booming financial and political center due to being the western terminus of the Erie Canal. Frankie's dad was an up-and-coming attorney-businessman who left an estate but without a will [Ketu].

When Frankie was 12 years old, Cleveland became the executor of Frankie's financial inheritance and for the next nine years, he ensured that she had both necessities and luxuries, including a college diploma. Within two months of her completion of college education, Cleveland proposed marriage to Frankie. Thus the primary male influence morphed from a father-figure into a husband, seen via the dreamy fog of Surya-yuti-Shukra as well as the unboundaried Ketu-yuti-Kuja-9.

[Ketu-yuti-Kuja] -9 indicates Dad's early demise and perhaps at times, his questionable behavior. One of the ways that Cleveland's political handlers tried to conveniently cover-up the fact of Cleveland's illegitimate son was to blame the unacknowledged child on Frankie's deceased father. However, the folks of Buffalo society knew well that Grover the Rover had paternity.

  • [community-connected Chandra-Kumbha] comforted by friendship * sensitive to gridworks * needs marketplace connection
  • [Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna] calmed by mixed networks * protectors of universal mingling * soothed by risky marketplaces * needs to make expedient social connections

Frankie was said to have been exceptionally close to her mother.

Typical of Chandra in classroom-7 and particularly for her Simha indriya-lagna which chooses elder spouses, Frankie chose to marry a parental, elder, father-figure lifepartner. Cleveland had been a colleague of her father.

Frances' Chandra-Kumbha occupies his 7th-from-Chandra-Simha = stabilizing bhava-4, showing the foundational dignity of home and family that she brought to the scandal-prone bachelor "Grover the Rover" Cleveland.


CAREER - 10th-from-Chandra

Chandra rules Karkata 10th-from-Guru = husband's reputation

Grover Cleveland married a beautiful 21-year-old wife when he was 49. " Frankie" bore him five children and raised them in publicly visible context during his second presidency. Praised as having brough fresh energy into a stagnant Whitehouse culture, Frankie's greatest service to Grover Cleveland was to rescue his reputation. Cleveland endured a near-crushing shaming-scandal when it was discovered that he had fathered a "love child" in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. Frankie, his young [effectively] second - wife promptly rectified the publicity narrative from "Grover the Rover" to a conventionally avowed and socially normalized husband and father.

Frankie was a genius of the newspaper media. With the sudden confluence of inexpensive daily newpapers and the new medium of photography, political publicity became an essential skill. Frankie was young, unimpeded by strictures that prescribed an older way of public outreach, and her use of the /new/ media was remarkably successful. In what would later be known as /press releases/ Frankie wrote or co-wrote brief, sentimentally cheerful vignettes about the young Cleveland Family's charming adventures.

Their marriage was remarkable for its age-gap and the added taboo-breaker that Frankie was GC's god-daughter and ward. However, Frankie's skill in media-management reframed the marriage. Using her gift for words and her clever grasp of the well-placed camera, Frankie signaled a message that her obese aging husband was the ideal father.

What could have been interpreted as a preposterous match bordering on the immoral was transformed into a fairy story of delightful family life. The Clevelands became socially celebrated and politically successful.

Further strengthening the bonds of marriage are the Rahu-Ketu Mesha-Tula axis both D-1 and D-9 of Frances Folsom Cleveland' s nativity matched tightly to the Rahu-Ketu Mesha-Tula axis of Grover Cleveland.

Frankie's image of liberal youthful gentility was enormously popular among the working classes and generally among progressive folks. Her image was appropriated by a huge variety of sales, marketing, and advertising, publications without her consent, falsely implying her endorsement of the product [Rahu]. She tolerated this blatantly expedient abuse of her image because in her view it benefitted the popularity of her husband [Guru]. Guru-yuti-Rahu -3 media-image, publications.

At 48 she remarried. Predictable via her Guru-yuti-Rahu pair.

  • Rahu = her first husband
  • Frankie's second husband = a quiet college professor [Guru].

[Surya in bhava-12] combined with Mangala-yuti-Ketu-9 would suggest the premature demise of her father
