Notable Calvin Coolidge quotes:

  • "Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong."

  • "No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave. "

Have Faith in Massachusetts as delivered by Calvin Coolidge to the Massachusetts State Senate, 1914

"Do the day's work. If it be to protect the rights of the weak, whoever objects, do it. If it be to help a powerful corporation better to serve the people, whatever the opposition, do that. Expect to be called a stand-patter, but don't be a stand-patter. Expect to be called a demagogue, but don't be a demagogue. Don't hesitate to be as revolutionary as science. Don't hesitate to be as reactionary as the multiplication table. Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong. Don't hurry to legislate. Give administration a chance to catch up with legislation."

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Krittika * Pleyades * Riksya * Agneya

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

Surya in bhava-2 ++ Chandra-2 parivartamsha Budha-3 shows dad's sensitive, alert ability to engage with politics (Surya) ++ business (Budha). The Coolidge name was known in New England, and when young Calvin entered politics folks remarked that his dad and his grand-dad had also been involved in public affairs

Shani-8 rules pitristhana-9. Much of dad's behavior was secretized. After CC's mom died, Dad quickly remarried.

Dad was a notary public, town clerk, and justice of the peace. The story is that Calvin had been visiting his father when POTUS-29 Harding suddenly died. Dad administered the POTUS oath of office to Calvin at 3am. Then, in New England style, they turned of the kerosene lantern, and everyone went back to bed.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • marriage partner = bhava-8 containing Shani
  • Grace Coolidge was long-lived and known for her frugality
  • Zukra-2 + Chandra + Surya + Mangala == her interest in language, especially deaf language education ++ her social graces and ability to chat on diverse topics
  • Chandra-2 parivartamsha Budha-3 = adds complexity and agility to Grace's empathy and conversational skill, especially in regard to the use of her hands for sign-language (Budha-yuti-Guru-uttama-3)

Grace Coolidge was a professional language (2) teacher for deaf students and a national spokesperson for deaf education. Shani is a somewhat reduced yogakaraka graha as ruler of 9-philosophy ++ 10-governance. Shani dharmesha shows her humanistic worldview. Her father was a college president. Grace learned considerable theory (9) and she was strongly identified with the profession (10) of deaf education.

CC's Shani receives drishti of four talkative Mithunaya graha = Chandra + Surya + Mangala + Zukra. GGC was said to be a vivacious intelligent person. She enjoyed polite entertaining and her educated Vermont manners were an essential asset to CC's career ascent.

Reportedly, GGC did like quietude (Shani) . The Coolidge marriage was restrained. CC has Ketu-7 +++ 3 graha with Zukra, suggesting his interest in other ladies. Yet, Shani gives containment in the first marriage. (see the Coolidge Factor).

  • CC held a series of elected positions at the local, city, and state official ranks. Except for one School Board election (which he lost because his new marriage had not yet produced children) CC won every contest - often running unopposed.
  • Brihaspati rules the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra suggesting a career based in ideological belief (Guru).

yogakaraka Shanaicarya rules 9-ideology, sacred teachings, paradigm of belief +++ 10-social ordering, governance, hierarchical position

One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional dis (2)coveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner. In-laws contribute little. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as surgeon, tantriki, concealer, mask-maker, emergency regulator.

Shani-8 rules 10: destruction (8) of oversight legislation = de-regulation of financial markets

Economic philosophy: Coolidge was a great friend to capitalists (2) and an enemy of the common worker's struggle for higher wages. He held that winner take all capitalism was the best economic policy.

Aesthetically a minimalist (Shani) CC promoted deregulation of marketplace relationships for six years. Historians consider that this destruction of earlier oversight controls removed the anti-greed and anti-trust protections, leading directly to the Great Depression.

  • CC presided during the "Roaring Twenties " when regulatory negligence prevailed in financial markets and the Rentier-Class unleashed their insatiable greed. Many historians consider Coolidge's laissez-faire economic policies to have plunged the country (and much of the financial world) into a deep monetary depression. The severity of the chaos that CC has generated became known soon after the end of his six-year administration.

Shani in Bhava-8 = a keeper of confidential information (8).

CC served as VPOTUS under POTUS-29 Teapot Dome Warren G. Harding who was immersed in scandal and died during his presidency from a stress-induced heart-attack. Shani-8 rules 10 = the boss (Harding). Shocks and upheavals, as well as secrecy (8) defined Harding's POTUS term, and CC helped to disguise the truth.

Historians generally judge CC as an only moderately effective POTUS. CC accomplished relatively little positive improvement. However CC was gifted with matters of reports and announcements. CC was a spin doctor (Guru-Budha-3) who by masking the truth and preventing further inquiry (Shani-8 prevents discovery) was able to restore the public trust in Whitehouse integrity after the Teapot Dome Bribery scandal.

mumutual aspect of Shani-8 + Surya-Zukra-Chandra-Kuja-2 * closed-mouth secret-keeper

CC's family home had neither running water nor electricity. Stoic Shani-8 drishti upon 2-family cultural values. After basic schooling, CC completed an apprenticeship in Law rather than pay for too-costly law school.

CC became modestly wealthy by his 50's (due to Guru) but he was not an ostentatiously rich man. (Typically also of Krittika-pada-3).

Shani-8 Dhanuzya = undisclosed assets

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Urisha * uttama * shimmering illusion of storage * craving for preserved collections * unusual banking practices * over-reaching acquisitions * preposterous accumulations * mesmerizing treasure-hoards * fabulous inventories * exotic food stores * amazing ship-holds + warehouses * mask of historic conservatism * intriguing acts of barreling + cooperage + containment * tantalizing libraries * marvelous hoards of valuables * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of accrued wealth * entrancing lineage knowledge * thrilling speech + song * excitement of values-fulfillment * seeks privilege via memory keeper-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-1 * passion for vitality * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous, exotic, or mesmerizing physical visage, extraordinary athletic movement. Smoky, oily aura. desires competitive advantage * exceptionally recognizable appearance , exhilarating energy, thrilling champion of non-standard lifestyles. Seeks social mobility via vital, dynamic muscularity. Exciting personality. Challenges the norms with innovative behavior. Unusual combination of identities. Embodiment of socio-cultural mixing. Seeks opportunity via ability to cross customary boundaries. Double agent, representing two or more groups. Over-reaching characteristics. Stirring ambition. Trespasses the conventional dividing cultural boundaries. Remarkable conditions of birth. A fascinating figure. May represent a cult of personality.

CC was a passionate promoter Rahu-Urisha-1 in the laissez-faire economics. This ideology was also naturally the favored philosophy of most robber-baron elites in his day.

CC believed in winner-take-all personal wealth accrual Rahu-Urisha * uttama. He was virulently opposed to wealth distribution via fair wages. As a governance officer, CC attacked organized labor and he opposed government involvement in social welfare provisioning. Mesmerizing the press with his oppressive handling of the Boston Police Labor Strike, CC gained national fame from his

The Coolidge Effect

"The Coolidge effect, whereby males (and to a lesser extent females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners, even after refusing sex from prior but still available sexual partners, is named after the former President. Behavioral endocrinologist Frank A. Beach first mentioned the term "Coolidge effect" in publication in 1955, crediting one of his students with suggesting the term at a psychology conference.[161] He attributed the neologism to an old joke about Calvin Coolidge when he was President.

The President and Mrs. Coolidge were being shown (separately) around an experimental government farm. When [Mrs. Coolidge] came to the chicken yard she noticed that a rooster was mating very frequently. She asked the attendant how often that happened and was told, "Dozens of times each day." Mrs. Coolidge said, "Tell that to the President when he comes by." Upon being told, the President asked, "Same hen every time?" The reply was, "Oh, no, Mr. President, a different hen every time." President: "Tell that to Mrs. Coolidge."

~~ The joke appears in a 1978 book (A New Look at Love, by Elaine Hatfield and G. William Walster, p. 75), citing an earlier source (footnote 19, Chapter 5)"

Feminine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni 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 Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, 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 Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Uttara-phalguni women are famously confident and willful. Monarchic entitlement pairs with aristocratic service via noblesse oblige. While much depends upon the characteristics of sparkling nakshatrapathi Surya, the feminine Falgun is often found in bright environments of royalty, celebrity, theatre, creative arts, amusements, and games.

Uttaraphalguni ladies radiate a profound love for living creatures, both wild and domestic. On behalf of the animal kingdom and its denizens, the women of Aryaman may undertake political activism. As righteous (and self-righteous) human mistresses of the animal world, their political style may include fiery displays of romantic idealism. They may collect animals.

Simha-Leya pada-1 features charismatic centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada-1 must hold the center of attention, whether in celebrity politics, entertainment and fashion, dramatic acting, or all three.Typically attracts an elder husband and many romances.

Kanya Pada 2-3-4 = equally dazzling, idealistic, smart, and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician due to nakshatrapathi Surya. Typically one attracts a generous husband.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."
