Masculine Nativities

Pushya-Sidhya

Tisya * Poosam * Pushyami * Paukshakya *Vutkrita * Barhaspatya * Indrapurohita * Avra


BPL commentary

For Pushyami births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.


Laws and Customs

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as transportation, farming + fishing, home-building + real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles (Shani) that provide an orderly process (Shani) for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya.

Dad died when HST was 30 years old. (Mom lived until HST was 63 years old.)

pitrikaraka Surya-Meza suggests that Dad would have been verbal (2) and confident in his abilities, particularly his knowledge of animal breeding (2).

  • Surya's ruler nichha-Mangala-1 indicates fluctuating fortunes for dad
  • the family moved around locally
  • also, similarity of both BWT and HST to the confident, potentially arrogant, father-figure
  • Mutual drishti of Surya-and-Chandra shows a balanced contract between the parents.

CAREER - SURYA

HST began his career as a local county judge. HST worked his way up the political machine, ascending step-wise through the US Senate and military budget roles, into VPOTUS and suddenly POTUS-33. Overall, NT held authoritative roles for 40 years.

aristocratic uttama-Surya-Meza

HST's Whitehouse administration was bitterly criticized for corruption and graft. Yet, as an individual, HST remained largely (but not entirely) independent of the political crime and greedy vulgarity surrounding him.

HST's advisors complained that he was not much interested in advice. He was considered autocratic in executive style. Surya-Meza

Surya rules 2-death, saturation

HST is remembered primarily for his role in causing sudden mass death via radiation fire (Surya).

  • Authorizing (Surya) the release of the atomic bomb at the end of WW-2 created (Surya) catastrophic death and maiming in Hiroshima-Nagasaki.
  • The unspeakable horrors of the radiation (Surya) stopped Japan's supremacist narrative (2) and violently spun the cycle of birth-and-death for millions of souls.

  • Outsiders were not permitted into her personal home.
  • Wife Bess's father committed suicide when Bess was a teenager = 9th-from-7th-from-Chandra = bhava-6 distress.

Normally a political wife would have been greatly beholden to the exhausting entertainment schedules of Washington Society. Yet, BT hosted only when it suited her. She spent most of HST's seven-year term of office at home, in Missouri.

  • BWT practiced a graciously formality. She fulfilled all social expectations. then departed.
  • The press were not invited into her home Zukra-12.

HST served in national defense (Karkata) for most of his career.

  • His roles matured from soldier in WW-1, to Senator investigating wasteful military spending, to FDR's de-facto military decisions maker, to POTUS-33 Commandeer in Chief.

Self-defensive nichha-Kuja's potent 4th drishti into Chandra-Thula-4 = scrappy

  • HST's demeanor was said to fluctuate (Chandra) between accommodatingly diplomatic vs. aggressively insulting.
  • Often described as "prickly"

Shani drishti upon nichha-Kuja-1 imposes a mandate for emotionally provoked defensive action under harsh circumstances

HST is remembered primarily for his use-or-misuse of a catastrophic weapon.

  • 3-announcements, documentation, reporting, cohort, committee-work, process management

Budha-yuti-Shani often indicates a lack of critical detail.

Budha reading. + Shani popular genre

  • HST was an early and voracious reader of popular history books.
  • HST did not attend college.
  • According to his political handlers, who had to frame him as deeply self-taught, Mom encouraged HST to read extensively.

Lack of a college education would suggest that HST consumed proletarian-audience (Shani) biographies of great leaders but he rarely read the more detailed, incisive academic critiques of these leaders.

Personality, Mentality, Verbal style

Budha-yuti-Shani

As a WW-1 captain working in harsh and horrible trench warfare, HST was respected and admired by his men.

HST's speech was characterized as direct-hitting, often witty, trench-talk potty-mouth.

Plain-spoken, often vulgar, often direct

  • Truman used the speech (Budha) of the common man (Shani) .
  • HST's face and manner connoted the honest but pessimistic Euro-folk of the middle plains (Missouri)

"the last honest man"

  • Unlike the aristocratic FDR, who had a liberal university education and was raised with tutors and servants, HST was largely self-taught.
  • He displayed some rural mannerisms.

HST's prosody evoked the soldier's life as well as the farm-fields and the hobo camps.

  • His speaking and gesturing style was brusque, even coarse.
  • He got the point across.

Successful appeal to war-weary, corruption-weary voters

  • HST was convinced by his political handlers to drop all pretenses and to speak to the citizens in a simple, heartfelt style.
  • HST was expected to lose the 1948 election to the more intellectual Dewey, but surprisingly the plainspoken spin worked.

Style matters.

Although HST was no more or less honest than the next man, he gained proletarian credibility by simply eschewing the conceptual and logical vocabulary of the educated classes.

  • His more sophisticated advisers complained that HST was the proverbial bull in the china shop
  • the plain-spoken spin gained HST lasting support from the working folk.

Narrowed scope (Shani) of critical thinking (Budha)

  • HST absorbed a vast amount of "broadcast" (uttama-Guru) from single authors promoting their own interpretative perspective.
  • Unlike any other POTUS since Taft, HST was never trained in the academic regime of logical debates, research writing assignments, and educated peer discussions.

Therefore, HST had limited verbal discussion skills, and he did not welcome informed critical dissent Budha-yuti-Shani,

  • As his later adversaries often remarked, HST tended to resist consideration of alternate or conflicting viewpoints.

HST's discourse emphasized realism (Shani).

  • Critics said that HST made up his mind on an issue, then blocked (Shani) further discussion (Budha).

Act now, talk later (if at all)

HST actions tended to be lawful, decisive (former judge) pre-emptive ((former soldier)

  • Despite the catastrophic outcome, most Americans supported HST's decision to poison, burn, wound, or annihilate millions of Japanese civilians.

Using an Act of War to Stop the War * Budha-Guru bhukti

"I knew what I was doing when I stopped the war ... I have no regrets and, under the same circumstances, I would do it again." ~~ Truman, 1963

The WW-2 Japanese military had already killed an estimated 6-10 million people in Asia, including a genocide of approximately 6 million Chinese and Southeast Asian peoples. Truman stood firm in his decision to attack Japan, despite some military opinions that the Allies had already won the war.

World-War-2 was the deadliest military conflict in history, with more than 3% of the world population killed and hideous numbers wounded. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties

  • Hideous as the effects were, this apocalyptic event did end the war. Instantly.
  • Guru-1 occupies 8th-from-6th = extreme upheaval + sudden, wide-scale, catastrophic end to war (6).

  • In his homeland (USA) HST = remembered as a Great Protector (Guru-Karkata) In the national memory, HST ensured that even when the American military was weakened and depleted -- from years of running an exhausting war on two sides of the world -- that the once-fierce enemy (Japan) would be vanquished.

Earnings after POTUS * vriddhi-pati-11- Zukra-12 parivartamsha Budha-11

Jan-1953 = Ketu-Rahu bhukti, HST age 69. POTUS-33 job was finished. After decades of government service, peaking in seven+ years at the highest levels of global responsibility as POTUS/Commander in Chief, Truman suddenly returned to a modest private life.

Compared to the incomes of his luxury-class comparators who typically run the top levels of government, HST seemed awfully broke (Shani-11).

But not for long.

Beginning in Zukra-Zukra svabhukti, HST was able to live comfortably from sale of local land (4) from pensions (11 income) and from his Memoires (Budha rules Rahu-3, predicting successful publications).

Zukra-Zukra svabhukti * Congress created presidential pensions in 1958

In 1953, there was no provision for pensioning of former presidents. It had never been necessary in the previous 175 years since the founding of USA, because most earlier POTUS had been landowners, businessmen, earned from their memoires (Grant) or had died on the job. Other men of modest means had served as POTUS, but they had died in office or shortly afterward.

Truman was the first non-luxury class ex-POTUS who lived for 20 years after leaving the Whitehouse.

Truman and his wife Bess lived in straits for several years until 1958. Age 69 in retirement during Sade-Sati-4, HST and his wife Bess had minimal investments. They lifestyle was cramped

Zukra-Zukra svabhukti brought a Congressionally approved ex-presidential retirement pension. At about the same time, HST was able to sell some lands, and he began realizing royalties from the sale of his highly popular memoire, Trial and Hope (Zukra-parivartamsha-Budha ++ Rahu-3 successful publications).

Piano Player

Zukra-12 in 9th-from-Chandra, ruler of Chandra, parivartamsha Budha

  • HST studied piano from the age of eight,
  • He played for political entertainment gatherings throughout his career.
  • His mom played church piano, and his sister was a piano teacher in Missouri
  • his daughter Margaret aspired to be a concert singer, but after her father left office she was no longer invited to perform

Pithy Quotations

Zukra-12-Mithunaya rules Budha-yuti-Shani

Despite Budha-yuti-Shani plain speech, HST was nevertheless blessed with a gracious Zukra parivartamsha Budha. His quotations were -- and still are -- popular, due to the balanced, simple, but yet elegant style of his aphorisms.

Zukra Mahadasha comfortable retirement * Zukra rules 4 (retirement) + 11 (income)

After ending his POTUS service with a sudden lifestyle downshift, Truman survived an additional 20 years, until age 88.

Despite his Ketu-Mahadasha panicked announcements that he would be going on government relief due to poverty from surviving on military pension, as soon as Zukra Mahadasha began, HST realized everal sources of income (11).

Due to Truman's very controversial decision to end the Pacific portion of World-War-2 by authorizing the atom-bomb drop onto Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan.it was widely believed that voters would not support Killer Truman against the well heeled and educated Thomas Dewey.

His win was granted by people with no connection to the East Coast power elites.

  • they were not morally outraged by the horrific atom bombs.
  • They wanted what HST delivered - a harshly uncompromising national defense.

Shani in Bhava-11 rules

  • 7-relationships, justice
  • 8-catastrophe, revolution, traumatic injury, healing, rejuvenation, threats

Pragmatism, realism, boots-on-the-ground

  • During FDR's years of failing health, and considering that FDR had no military service record, Truman made most (if not all) of the detailed military budget decisions
  • HST's recommendations were then trustingly approved by a sick and distracted FDR.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

Disinterested Ketu-Meena-9 occupies the 6th-from-Chandra, suggesting HST's well-known lack of religious affiliation. Also, his lack of pious respect for preachers such as Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham, who was usually fawned over by American political leaders. Sparing no sentiment, HST called Graham a "counterfeit attention seeker".

Ketu Mahadasha 1950-1957

1950-1957 = third Sade-Sati via 3-commands + 4- retirement + 5-politics

  • Truman's elected POTUS term = Jan-1949-until-Jan-1953.
