Masculine Nativities

Visaka * Radha

Indra-agni - Aindra-agna - Zkragni - Satragni - Sadvhava - Vaikaasi - Vaigasi - Visagaam

BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Growth Shocks

[Tula-Vanika] pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Shukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles [Shukra] which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm [Guru] . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.

Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Shukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Tula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick [due to Guru activates 3-6] .

Vṛścika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Viśākha-Rādhā

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 97.

" ... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

Values and Equality * Shukra

Educated at the plebian State Teachers College, he remained committed to expansion of educational opportunity throughout his political career . He switched from conservative segregationist platform to become a legendary supporter of civil rights .

Hidden relationships

Mithunaya Shukra is much amplified by oily, smoky Rahu. Johnson loved to socialize in the various Dallas and Austin private clubs, where he met his friends and lovers. Rahu in Karakamsha Mithuna-8 would much increase material fortunes on the basis of hidden informational, conversational, and sexual relationships [Mithunaya coupling] .

LBJ's friends were mainly in the publishing, advertising, and communications businesses including public relations and campaign management. These are by nature, people who like to talk. Jack Ruby * Rubenstein , who shot the man accused of shooting Kennedy [LH Oswald] was an operator of clubs favored by Johnson. His friendships [ vriddhi-pati-11 Budha is also randhresha-8 ] were often unseen but were nonetheless exciting and filled with intrigue.

ruler-of-12 Shukra in occupation of Randhra Bhava produces a protective Viparita Raja Yoga = [Vimala Yoga] . Johnson was implicated in many crimes and indiscretions - much of it happening in hotel rooms [12] -- but he was never caught or formally accused [8 camouflage]

Shani in 8th-from-Chandra

series of heart attacks. Third one was fatal. Shani-5.

Collapsing Ketu in 5th-from-Chandra takes drishti of Shani.

Typical of Shani-5, Johnson had cardiac health issues not only physical but also psycho-emotional.

Shani activates 6th-from Simha Therefore, Shani occupies the awkward shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from Surya, 6/8 from Chandra, 6/8 from Mangala, 6/8 from Guru and 6/8 from Budha. The heart is where he stored conflict and resistance "stop" energy.

When the stop materialized at the physical level the amount of conflict-and-resistance involved was colossal. Recovery was long and painful; However, he would live for another Rahu-cycle of 18 years, until Rahu created the fatal heart-attack when Rahu returned to Dhanus in Jan-1973.

~~ B.V. Raman , A Catechism of Astrology. p. 31

... Saravali ascribes the following results:...

When Saturn occupies Sagittarius or Pisces, and is aspected by Mars,

he will be attacked by severe gout, will be despised by people ,

will live in foreign countries, and will be miserly and poor .

[BPL comment:

LBJ seems to have had some but not all of Saravali's purported outcomes.

  • LBJ did receive great ire for his ramp-up of the VietNam War [Kuja].
  • He lived in poverty for two years while teaching in a poor Texas school - but he died a very wealthy man, due mainly to his wife's financial acumen.
  • He never lived in a foreign land, and rarely traveled outside the USA.
  • He suffered from chronic cardiological stress, but never gout [so far as the public knew.]

Feminine Nativities


Shrona - Hari - Śrāviṣṭha - Apramaya - Azvattha

BPL commentary

For Zra-vana births of a feminine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social order.

The Listener* Shaman

Śrāviṣṭha ladies are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Orderly personalities who often conduct high-visibility careers, they are dedicated to family life and naturally comfortable with motherhood. Shrona-born often assume caretaker roles in social organizations and at all levels of government.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Hari-born attend to the needs of mothers and children, often using the slow and indirect bureaucratic methods that might intimidate a less patient leader. Yet, in their care it is quietly effective.

Śrāvaṇa-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Śrāvaṇa can be music and dance performers. Whether professionally or socially, Śrāviṣṭha ladies are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing.

Measured, appropriate tone

The primary aim of Apramaya-born is to deflect any unfavorable public opinion from themselves and their family. A secondary aim is to socially structure the regular flow of seasons in the lunar cycle. Thus, they are often engaged with the comforting rituals of the liturgical calendar.

Combining Chandra's orientation to the past with Shani's need for reliable rules of conduct, Shrona folks may appear to be rather old-fashioned. Misbehavior is upsetting for them. Śrāvaṇa mothers bask in the glow of their children and grandchildren's accomplishments. Being a grandmother, or a grand-dame in some socially respected way, is perhaps their most cherished role.

Themes of propriety, politeness, security, seasonal flow, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Śrāvaṇa's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Śrāvaṇa

Budha communications

Along with her Vṛścika husband, CTJ -- a.k.a. Ladybird Johnson -- owned a chain of valuable radio and television assets in the State of Texas and nearby.

Her husband Lyndon Johnson was a powerful national-level politician representing Texas.

It was important to LBJ's political profile that he should appear to be a humble man from the rural districts, a former schoolteacher, and publicly unconnected to luxurious wealth.

  • Therefore, the Johnson family's substantial business income [11] was disguised [Vṛścika] under CTJ's maiden name.
  • In those days, few women owned important businesses, and certainly very few in the South.

    The camouflage [Vṛścika] of CJT's name was completely legal. Their earnings were never disclosed to the press or to the citizenry. No-one looked at conflict of interest. Or if they looked, they were paid to un-look.

Most importantly, with their business assets hidden in plain sight, Senator Johnson could promote national legislation that favored his-and-Claudia's local monopoly on telecommunications. Rahu-3

Lyndon Johnson was legally married only once. His life partner was Lady Bird Claudia Taylor who lived for 94 years, from 22-Dec-1912 until 11-Jul-2007.

Ladybird had a frenetic life while Lyndon was alive.

  • CJT lived in the center of political power while simultaneously managing her own dynamic tele-communications businesses [her Rahu-3] .

Nov-1963 Shani-Budha bhukti - Budha rogesha

Perhaps recalling the trauma of her mother's unexpected death when she was only four years old, CJT had a birds-eye-view of the grieving chaos of her nation after assassination of President Kennedy [in which she may have been complicit] .

  • Her husband's handling of the Vietnam War and racially charged civil unrest also provoked national anger
  • LBJ left the incumbent presidency without trying to win the next election.

During notorious Shani-Rahu bhukti

LBJ was dead of a heart attack three years later.

  • Finally CTJ's life settled into privacy and quiet.
  • Also the Johnsons had become HNWI during his political career
  • Ladybird retired exhausted, but in plush comfort.

  • CTJ was the owner-operator of a group of radio-television assets in the southeast.
  • Hardworking and well capitalized, she was the boss.

It was culturally unusual [Rahu] in their southern social context for a married woman to run a substantial business.

  • LBJ never disclosed Ladybird's commercial work
  • They were able to net an enriching income CTJ's communication and managerial skills [3] .

Rahu drishti into 7-9-11

Ladybird Johnson conducted an exceptionally profitable business in radio-television communications during her husband's long political career.

She became one of the wealthiest women in the USA.

Johnson_Lyndon_Squeeze_1961.jpgRahu-7th-navamsha = ambitious, over-reaching lifepartner

LBJ was the very definition of over-reaching. His strong-arm tactics, including " the squeeze" were legendary.

According to observers, she seemed to always be watching him.

Ladybird told interviewers after Lyndon's death that she was so much fascinated with his passionate, ambitious personality that she [Ketu-1 navamsha] accepted whatever he [Rahu-7 navamsha] chose to do.

LBJ's's biographers agree that he was systematically abusive toward his loyal wife. Ketu-7 accepts drishti of Shani, which can be a bit harsh. Yet one is loyal to the legal contract with Shani-7-navamsha. It was a materially profitable partnership but Lyndon Johnson died from heart-attack before he could enjoy the wealth. Ladybird on the other hand had uninterrupted comfort and luxury for 34 years.

Taboo Pleasures * Rahu-Shukra * ruler-of-12 bedroom

Johnson maintained several mistresses and produced"love children" [said to be at least two] However, he also disregarded these children [ketu-5-from-Chandra] .

" Bird"as he called her was one of many mates. Yet, she was his business partner and his major funding source in the early days, as well as the public face of his family life.

Lyndon Johnson was known for conducting his numerous extramarital affairs quite publicly. His behavior included occasionally insulting Ladybird very rudely. More normally he indulged in making demeaning comments behind her back, and effectively excluded the educated and financially privileged Mrs. Johnson from most key career decisions during his long and ambitious career.

Social friends of the couple say they often felt sorry for Bird due to Lyndon's cavalier behavior toward her. Yet for her part, she claimed to love Lyndon and was sure that he loved her too despite his indiscretions on a large scale. [Her Ketu.] Her father had married three times and she was accustomed to many amours in the house.

Purvaphalguni Chandra = ruled by Shukra, treasures and pleasures Shukra-Mithunaya for communications media and Rahu-01 = oil

Commerce + Politics * Simha bhava-3

Ladybird was a highly capable businesswomen who built a fortune in the communications industry . She bought a small radio station and built up a cartel. It consisted primarily of radio and television but also war-related sonar and signaling systems.

Johnson had served as head of the naval reserve and saw active naval duty during the WW-2 ocean battles. He understood military communications. Due to his ongoing roles with NASA [communications and short-term travel, bhava-3] he understood space program budgets too. The Vietnam War buildup and NASA expansion offered prime opportunities to expand his commercial interests.

His intense concentration of graha in bhava-3 shows the mixing of politics-[Simha-Leya] and communications business via the lords of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11 in sahaja-bhava.

During the 1960's Johnson's companies significantly controlled the radio-TV signal delivery network in Texas. Through companies held in trust under his wife's maiden name of which the public knew almost nothing, via commercially advantageous legislation passed by him and latterly via wartime contracts, Johnson became one of the richest men in the USA, although the extent of his wealth was known to only a few.

Character of Expedience * Rahu

vidya-pati-5 Shukra in lagna with amplifer Rahu. Johnson has been called a "pathological winner" . He is said to have exhibited an intense need for power. He notoriously lied in college and outright stuffed ballot boxes to win US Senate election in the famous "box 13" elections fraud [chala-karaka Rahu-1]

A consummate dealmaker [Shukra-1; also Punarvasu-Mithuna portion] famed for forcing consensus in warring party factions, he was renowned for his domineering personality and the "Johnson treatment," his coercion of powerful politicians in order to advance legislation." [wikipedia] .


rogesha-6 Mangala is deeply mixed-up with the lords of 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10, and 11 in the intensely political bhava-3. Johnson is said to have had a violent temper. He was on the verge of being indicted by Congress in connection with multiple Texas money-murders at the time of the JFK assassination during his Rahu-Surya bhukti that hyper-charged Johnson's power-politics bhava-3.

Despite having become a multi-millionaire by his early forties, Johnson thought of himself as a poor man from a hard-scrabble background who had to be shrewd to win. He is said to have harbored a jealous hatred of the rich and privileged playboy JFK while nevertheless maintaining a surface professional working relationship [Shukra-1 harmonizer] .

Although he won POTUS-36 election by the largest margin in history [ a nation desperate for continuity and stability in time of massive internal upheaval] his brilliant start ended in crushing defeat: left office in humiliation, as Vietnam War spun out of control in 1968. Involved as he was right from the beginning of his career with Texas oligarchy, Johnson is accused of dragging out the Vietnam War in part because of inextricable high-profit contracts with major Texas weapons manufacturers and oil interests.

Johnson is also implicated in the predominant conspiracy scheme to arrange multiple snipers for the execution of the president and subsequent silent coup d'état. However, Mr. Johnson does not have the nativity of a murderer. It is more likely that via the complex web of his business interests [bhava-3] Johnson became instrumental [Rahu-1] to those who organized the killing.
