Masculine Nativities

Viśākha * Radha

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


For Viśākha 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, Viśākha, 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.r.

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Viśākha 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, first principles, 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-Viśākha 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 Viśākha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Viśākha - Rādhā

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

" ... 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.

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman , A Catechism of Astrology. p. 31

[begin quote] ... 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 . [end quote]

[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.]
