Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Krittika-Pleyades * Pleyades * Riksya

BPL commentary

For Krittika 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 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 gentlemen are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Natural dramatists, Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and 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.

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 banking and finance, natural resource conservation, music, wines and perfumes, arts, and beauty. Depending on Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward government positions.

Themes of self-importance, individual entitlement, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Krittika-Pleyades

7th-from-Chandra-10 = bhava-4 Karkata

  • WW's first wife, the fine-arts painter Ellen Axson .

Ms. Axson was lovely and talented both socially and artistically. Her primary role in his life was mother and home-keeper. As WW rose from the ranks of professorship into university presidency, the couple enjoyed both capital wealth and distinguished, accomplished company.

Sadly, Ellen Axson suffered from excruciatingly painful, debilitating Bright's Disease (diabetes-type-1). Shani in 6th-from-Zukra chronic ailments of the wife, Shani-Arudra hormone insufficiency. She was increasingly ill during his Guru Mahadasha thus retired to her sickroom while he continued to pursue his career ambitions Guru-yuti Rahu.

Zukra + Mangala + Chandra suggests three marriage-type alliances'

Wilson maintained an affair du coeur with his wealthy socialite mistress for some years during his wife's progressing illness. However, it was generally believed that his indiscretions were accepted by his first wife as an enablement toward WW's climb toward higher social privilege Rahu.

  • bhava-11 Kumbha
  • Edith Galt Wilson
  • EGW was a capable partner and manager.
  • After WW suffered a severely debilitating stroke, EGW was accused by WW's critics of covertly operating the Whitehouse according to her own abilities.

Zukra-yuti-Mangala + Chandra. Two marriages and one significant affair-du-coeur.

Toward the end of his Princeton University presidency, WW endured a political scandal . via exposure of his sexual affair with a local New Jersey socialite. however, she also had the money and the connections to assist his election to New Jersey governor, a post he held for less than two years before ascending to POTUS-28.

Rapidly following his first wife's decease from kidney disease in Aug-1914, WW endured minor scandal again via his (apparently) sudden courtship and remarriage to Washington DC socialite and widow, Edith Boling Galt. It is said that he and Mrs. Galt were ready to marry in Nov-1914 (suggesting that this was not a new relationship). However, he was pressured by his advisors to delay for the customary one year of public widowhood. Thus President Wilson and Mrs. Galt were ceremonially married in 1915.

Wife-2 the Proxy POTUS * uttama-Kuja-10


8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-10 = 2nd-from-Chandra

++ uttama-Kuja-10 (graha holding 2nd-highest-degree following Zukra. Wife-1 = Zukra.)

EGW's Chandra-Meena links into Wilson's R-K axis empowered by Meena-Guru, allowing invisible empowerments.

After WW's paralyzing stroke in Sep-1919, Edith Galt reputedly became the proxy POTUS-28, making executive decisions on her husband's behalf. By her own account, she merely limited his visitors while he was paralyzed and held his pen-writing hand steady so that he could sign important documents. However, observers claim that Edith Boling Galt was acting as the de facto president while the de jure president Wilson continued to collapse in failing health. She prioritized which documents came to his attention and told him what to sign.

Edith Wilson was respected as his gatekeeper and her executive intelligence allowed the government to continue during the crisis of her husband's debilitating illness.

Karmesha-10 = Shani-3, while the rulers of 1-2-4-7-8 occupy karmabhava-10

Shani-Mithunaya-3 occupies the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra

Wilson suffered from circulatory problems and hardening of the arteries, along with depression and dour spirits. A few of his massive stress factors included World-War-1 and severe conflict with Congress; his workaholism was legendary and it produced a downward spiral of crippling illness while in office

Shani duty above all

In his second POTUS term, WIlson was debilitated by severe stroke injury. Nevertheless, he completed hise executive duties with full dignity. Very few members of the public realized how crippling his injuries truly were. Exhausted from the effort, he died soon after completing term-2.
