Masculine Nativities

Chitra-Tvastri * Citthirai * Vismakarma * Azinech * Alaraph * Arista * Dana

BPL commentary

For Chitra-Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Architectural Mechanical Designs * Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Thula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Zukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. They are often found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, musical instruments, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

The famed horseback-fighting Rough Riders were not authorized by the USA military, and from a diplomatic perspective this renegade group caused a good deal of trouble. However, the flamboyant imagery of spirited fighting boosted TR's image into the public awareness. Mangala-Dhanuzya (horseback fighting) in the advertising, announcing 3rd-from-Budha.

Budha-Budha swabhukti: July-1898. Rough Riders win the decisive Battle of San Juan Heights.

Guru-8-Vrishabha expands the number of undisclosed financial dealings

Guru-8 rules 10th-from-Chandra, suggesting that TR was frequently away from his official posts. Despite the rigorous governance implications of Shani-10 (which were exemplified by his high-duty second wife Edith Carow) TR was challenged by the concept of staying with a specific job for longer than his personal attention span might permit. Rahu drishti to his Arudra Chandra + Surya-nichha-1 + Budha-1 exacerbated his volatility and a nearly unlimited personal budget bequeathed by his wealth parents (Surya-Chandra) further suggests no-limits gallivanting from one impulse to the next. Indeed he lost the 1912 re-election bid partly due to criticism that he was often absent from the Whitehouse, conducting personal travels, and writing books unrelated to his duties.

POTUS-25 Gold Standard William McKinley had been shot and died eight days later from infection. 14-Sept-1901, age 42, TR becomes the youngest POTUS in USA history.

Budha-Zukra bhukti Nov-1901 * sudden identity change

quits the Governor position to become VPOTUS. In 1900, VPOTUS was a do-nothing job;- strictly a place-holder in case the president became incapacitated. However, being a bhukti of the randhresha, it was likely that something transformative would occur. McKinley was murdered and TR quickly became POTUS.

Budha-Zukra bhukti * Zukra rules 8-discovery, exposure

Feb-1902 Budha-Guru bhukti TR orders antitrust suit under Sherman Act to dissolve Northern Securities Company in the first of 45 antitrust lawsuits. TR's ambitious and aggressive Mangala-8 rules 7-lawcourts. The purpose is to expose the corporate-shell-hidden assets to the government thus making those assets available for legal taxation (8).

The Perfect Storm: Rahu occupies the Shad-ashtakya 6/8 angle from Shani. Rahu-Shani bhukti will be brutal.


Shani-10 drishti into bhava-7 = celebrated anti-trust enforcer = applied lawful constraint to business relationships, regulating commerce

yogakaraka Shani-10 legislation rules 4- examinations, schooling

As New York Police Commissioner, TR imposed a shooting examination for police. "The shots that hit are the shots that count." "Received national press attention for his reforms, including "midnight rambles in search of policemen not at their posts. Ordered that all police officers must report for target practice, thus establishing the foundation of the Police Academy, one of the first in the country." [wikipedia]

1912 = Budha-Shani bhukti * exhausted attempt to reclaim his throne

TR's final attempt to regain POTUS rank. Assassination attempt. TR was well funded by his friends in the party. However, it was clearly going to be a no-go as the chidradasha deprived TR of the physical health necessary to proceed.

Rahu-5 ruled by Shani-10 = Shad-ashtakya 6/8 angle = Shani sees politics as a necessary evil in governance ++ Rahu has a passion for politics

famous for relentless campaign travels

The combination of Rahu-5 in 3rd-from-3rd ++ Mangala-3 made TR a prolific writer. He produced 26 books, hundreds of magazine articles, thousands of speeches and many fascinating letters.

Rahu drishti to Chandra-9, Surya-1, Budha-1

  • FAMILY - Surya + Chandra + Budha
  • Rahu's drishti to both Surya and Chandra shows the powerful effect of Rahu upon both of TR's parents and drishti to Budha-Thula is expressed via his highly effective sister Barnie (Anna).

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Krittika-Agneya * Pleyades * Riksya

BPL commentary

For Krittika births of a feminine 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 splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, 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.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.

Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born ladies are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance.. Riksya-born are brightly idealistic + self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatrapathi Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius.

Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures. Feminine births in pada-1 are often distinguished by an athletic figure and personal independence

Vrishabha-Urisha-pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Zukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatrapathi Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of uniquely central, creative roles.

They often serve as independent evaluators within the artistic and financial worlds, in the music industry, dealing with wines and perfumes, and in all aspects of beauty. Depending on Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward organizational leadership positions.

Themes of valuation, individual intelligence, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Krittika

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

"... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please."
