Masculine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni


For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion(s).

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatrical values of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

[Sweetly Suave Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics , romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Shukra-governed births, bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Shukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.


John F. Kennedy in 1962 with POTUS-31 Herbert Hoover

QUOTATION Pūrvaphalgunī

from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

" A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

  • bhava-7 contractual agreements, equity, judgment
  • Kumbha large group assemblies, economics, profits, social networking, distribution systems, populism, fundraising events, friendship
  • [her navamsha Chandra-Kumbha]

A friendly, fundraising lifepartner.

Chandra-Simha often struggles with compatibility in marriage due to the Surya-Shani rulership of the axis of core alliances

Nevertheless, the lifepartner would be dedicated to the contractual union. Life-partner would be a Kumbha economic agent, engaged with fundraising [11] and social participation networks [11] . Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a socialite, well-connected to the dynastic wealth families of the American northeast elite.

  • JFK married a stylish, attractive, lovely spouse [Shukra-Vrishabha] who was educated in art history [Vrishabha values, memory] and spoke several Euro-languages [Vrishabha treasuries of the tongue] . Jacqueline Bouvier was the mother of his children. She fashionably accompanied him to official functions.
  • However, yuvati-pati Shani in Bhava-12 explains why Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy often travelled separately. Both made frequent, sanctuary-seeking, extended visits to stay with their own families. His political handlers knew of his numerous extramarital adventures Shukra-yuti-Guru and were notably concerned about the political liability to blackmail since yuvathi-pati Shani-12 is also the rogesha. Yet, the mate cooperated in maintaining the cloak of invisibility surrounding his bedroom activities [Shukra in 10 = spouse cooperates in the public facade] . She declared no knowledge of his famed promiscuity.


Chandra-1 rules Shani-12 shows that JFK spent considerable time in private rooms, including hospitals where he was treated for severe issues of the spiner.

Constant tension due to mutual drishti between Shani in Bhava-12 ++ Mangala in bhava-9

Private Suffering

Shani-12 often indicates chronic but private conditions of worry, physical pressure, deprivation, and survival fears. JFK had a lifetime of hospitalizations which, even while protected from view by Harsha Yoga, and regulated by a long list of physicians, were nonetheless debilitating..

Health and Medication

JFK was born into Shukra-Shani bhukti, which set the stage for a lifetime of accidents, injuries, animosities, and medications, along with relationships, contracts, bargains, and legal settlements. He was diagnosed with Addison's Disease [adrenal insufficiency] and endured [Shani] a lifetime of painful medical handling.

[Harsha Yoga]

JFK suffered from many chronic and acute accidents, injuries, and ailments. Yet, the public knew little of his medical situation. The televised image showed an athletic, beaming, handsome visage of a youthful father with his toddler children, and a swimming, dancing, football-playing champion in the sports field. He had been sick since childhood, but the protective power of Shani's Harsha Yoga provided a 12-screen of fog to the public eye.

When Shani activates medicated bhava-6, the physician's treatments are often worse than the original injury or disease.

This detailed article from the Atlantic Magazine on JFK's complex, screened-off health situation demonstrates that, by the standards of contemporary medical science, most of the medical treatment, including pharmaceuticals, injections, surgeries, caused more harm than health.
