Masculine Nativities


Aśleṣās * Uraga * Azreshasha * Hydra * Aayilyam * Bhujamaghabha

BPL commentary

For Aśleṣa 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 Uraga, 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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

Budha-ruled Aśleṣās are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators.

Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ethnic narratives and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing [Budha] in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place. Hydra-born are natural environmentalists who prefer conversations about parenthood, ritual worship and holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. Depending upon the condition of parental Chandra, Aśleṣa fathers may bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their sentimental audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, the Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that nourishment can continue and ethnic customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Aśleṣās-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles. They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśleṣa-Naga.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."


Senator Warren G. Harding in 1919 (age 54), from the collection of the Library of Congress

  • pleasantly gracious Budha-Tula rules the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort evangelical instructional team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra

Manager, speech-writer, team-builder, spin-doctor

Flossie = an aggrieved wife who was well aware of WGH infidelities. Both of her husbands were unfaithful, alleged alcoholics. WGH was weakened by heart disease and preferred his amorous liaisons = [nīcha] Shukra disappointing marriages.

On the minus side, WGH was indecisive by nature. On the plus side, WGH was pliable, and he was in her debt.

  • Savvy manager FKH had a range of decision-making clout so far unequaled by any POTUS spouse. POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan perhaps coming close.

  • Hire-and-fire: FKH vetted each member of WGH's cabinet.
  • Influential speeches, especially on women's' rights: FKH wrote some of his most important speeches.
  • She sat near him on the dais, signaling which phrases should be emphasized.
  • Loyalty-builder: FKH ensured that all of their Marion, Ohio, campaign workers were invited to prime Inauguration events, recognized, and feasted.
  • Due to her salient role in WGH's administration, Flossie was the first POTUS spouse to request and receive Secret Service protection.

  • commentators observed that FKH (Shukra-yuti-Rahu ) personally and effectively managed the campaign from their base in Marion Ohio

  • During the potentially too-boring "front porch campaign" FKH added celebrities (Rahu fascinating) to the staged Marion "locals" population for excitement

FKH the uber-planner

Who controls the press controls the public

Former newspaperwoman FKH outreach [Rahu] to the press was legendary and instantly successful.

  • FKH was a consummate planner who created information flow, photographic perspectives, and welcoming social refreshments for the press corps.

Particularly following the volatile uncertainties of the insular Wilson administration, the anxieties, grief, and austerities of WW-1, FKH's publicity-loving, super-busy [Budha] informative [Budha] and women-centric [Shukra] social scheduling was widely reported as proof of WGH "return to normal" campaign slogan.

For his part, WGH seemed to follow FKH [Shukra] detailed directions [Budha] obediently, with no pushback.

  • Historians opine that Flossie knew about the massive invisible (12) corruption ([nīcha] Shukra-Rahu) occurring at cabinet level, but she did not interfere. ([nīcha] Shukra = tolerance for crime.)

Guru * dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)

  • -9 father, patronage, politics, celebrity, fortune = contains Ketu
  • Guru activates 12th-from-Chandra = seclusion, bedroom life

WGH administration was rife with political corruption, peaking with the notorious Teapot Dome scandal. WGH's appointed several of his best friends to top levels of national leadership, where they were convicted of large-scale bribery, (Guru-6) fined, and imprisoned. WGH famously said that he had no trouble from enemies, but that his friends and their choices kept him awake at night.

Health 6

long history of stress-related personal illnesses, including bouts of severe asthma

From his early 20's onward, WHG regularly suffered nervous exhaustion.

  • Several occurrences of physical collapse brought him to the local sanatorium for recovery.
  • Historians now think that because physicians of the day did not yet know how to identify these symptoms as heart disease, WGH was likely living with a profound heart condition ([nīcha] Surya-4 + Kuja activates 5).

Widespread Corruption + Blame

Harding endured the accusations and blaming (6) of the Teapot Dome shaming-scandal. Harding was scapegoated for pervasive, embedded, institutionalized corruption which had long preceded him.

Inclusive benefactor to the marginalized

WGH was also a friend to the marginalized classes. In his speeches and policy positions, WGH supported citizenship for American Natives (legalized in 1924 after his death). He championed the rights of immigrants and women.

  • Aesthetic of undervaluation.
  • Often displeased with peers.

Wifely Companion

kalatra-karaka [nīcha] Shukra

Florence Kling Harding = super-wife

Risk-loving Rahu + Budha Business + Shukra relationships

When Flossie married WGH in 1891, she was the dominant partner.

  • She was wealthier than WGH, a trained accountant and business manager
  • a single mom with independent lifestyle funded by her own mother,
  • the daughter of WGH arch-rival newspaperman who had provided FKH with decision-making experience.
  • FKH also brought her school-aged son into their marriage.

FKH was used to living by her own standards

Vigorous promoter of WGH career

  • Daughter of a stern and critical father, FKH was said to be an extremely hard worker = Shani in 7th-from-Chandra
  • Her own career as a concert pianist destroyed by single motherhood, FKH turned to relentless development of GWH's future.
  • Furthermore, even though she was angry and insulted by WGH's long-running affair with her (former) best friend, FKH skillfully masked [Rahu] his remarkable sexual profligacy from the public.

Spin-doctor + public-relations control

  • Working with closely with FKH, WGH's handlers were effectively able to prevent disclosure of most of his weaknesses and maintain illusion of his executive caliber.
  • So diligent was Flossie in her camouflage of WGH indiscretions -- both sexual and financial * [nīcha] Shukra -- that she destroyed all the damning evidence by burning WGH papers immediately after his death.

Newspaper Lady (Rahu-3)

One of Flossie's numerous points of management genius = her substantial ability to communicate with the press.

  • As a former newspaper manager, Florence Harding understood the world of newspapers.
  • During each phase of WGH's political career, Flossie reached out ambitiously [Rahu] to the press, inviting them to parties and presentations, providing photo-opportunities (Rahu-3) and feeding them copy for articles.
  • Once settled in the Whitehouse, she often accompanied journalists on public tours of the mansion.

Shukra-yuti-Rahu Over-reaching Feminist Agenda

A proponent of women's suffrage (which movement had been building in the USA for more than 50 years) FKH used her press access to publish letters supporting women's careers, women's voting, and women's financial independence.

  • Most remarkably, FKH convinced WGH to support women's rights despite the conservative opposition of his monied handlers.

Shrewd Image-Sculptor (Rahu-3)

Historians tend to agree that Flossie Harding was a strong, focused woman married to a weak, dissolute man.

  • FKH not only sculpted and amplified WGH image in the press, generating a compelling illusion that WGH was a man of dignity and ability.
  • Most commentators think that WGH against-the-Senate-norm positive position on women's suffrage was less his own passion and more fueled by his ambitious, dynamic, and outspoken wife.
  • However, WGH may also have had his own authentic desire to see women further empowered, because he admired his amazing mom Chandra in classroom-10 and because he obviously liked women

Opportunity to promote Women's Rights

Florence Harding understood timing.

  • FKH also used the press opportunistically to promote her own 1920's feminist agenda.
  • The "unthinkable" 19th Amendment was soon passed. [Rahu]
  • Shukra activates 11 collective action
  • Within 20 years, due to WW-2, large numbers of American women had public careers, salaries, and buying power.

Suave Shukra activates Urisha-11 Karakamsha economic achievements, social networking

  • WGH was elected a Freemason, raised to the Sublime Degree of a Master Mason on August 27, 1920 (immediately preceding the Nov-1920 election)
  • Although hailing from modest families, WGH and FKH were exceptionally well connected socially due to the influence they wielded via their newspapers.

[nīcha] Shukra-yuti-Rahu in 6th-from-Chandra * sex addition + alcoholism

  • According to Whitehouse staff reports, WGH repeatedly made love to a young girl, Nan Britten, in a White House closet.
  • On one such occasion, Secret Service agents had to stop Mrs. Flossie Harding from beating down the closet door.
  • WGH was the father of the young lady's child. Both he and FKH aggressively denied it.

In addition, while Prohibition was in effect, WGH was said to drink heavily in the Whitehouse

Shukra-yuti-Rahu = WGH pioneering supporter of women's suffrage

  • In particular, Harding was an outspoken advocate Shukra-yuti-Rahu-3 of American women's rights.
  • During his six years in the USA Senate, WGH was a surprisingly vigorous supporter of the 19th Amendment that was opposed by most of the conservative patriarchy
  • Ratified in Aug-1920, it granted the vote to USA women in all elections local, state, and federal

  • Shani-yuti-Budha * resistance against signaling * materialistic siblings * responsible for maintaining lawful commerce * pragmatic coupling * limited interaction * disciplined messaging * structured announcements * speaks plainly * proletarian instructions * regulated business * constrained communication * conventionally regulated conversations

Budha-yuti-Shani = writing as a form of work

  • GWH owned newspapers and like most newspapermen of his day he wrote much of his own copy
  • Harding's polemical-oratorical skills were strong = Budha + Kuja-Shani-Surya
  • Both WGH and FKH were said to be disciplined workers Shasaya Yoga

Budha = logical but argumentative - yuti Shani (rough or plebian) with [nīcha] Surya (false confidence) + challenger-Mangala

  • Educated critics noted his constant grammatical errors.

Conditions of death * Shani randhresha

Causes of physical dematerialization = variously and inconsistently attributed to a complex of physical factors, including pre-existing heart weakness, infection perhaps from food poisoning.

  • He died during Guru-Shani bhukti
  • in a San Francisco hotel room = vyaya-pati Budha-yuti-Shani
  • during an extended travel- tour (12, long sojourn) of the western USA including Alaska.

Non-disclosure Vṛścika-5 = fatal environments 8th from Chandra.

  • poisoning, whether accidental or intentional, is possible.
  • Medical mismanagement was almost certainly a factor due interference by his ambitious, controlling wife. FKH forbade an autopsy.
  • before anyone in government was aware of her actions, FKH had burned most of WGH medical records
  • She destroyed all but a few of his private papers and presidential correspondence.
