Masculine Nativities


Aśleṣās - Naga - Uraga - Azreshasha - Hydra - Aayilyam - Bhujamaghabha

BPL commentary

For Aśleṣa births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Uraga, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

[Budha] -ruled Aśleṣās are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators.

Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ethnic narratives and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing [Budha] in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place. Hydra-born are natural environmentalists who prefer conversations about parenthood, ritual worship and holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. Depending upon the condition of parental Chandra, Aśleṣa fathers may bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their sentimental audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, the Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that nourishment can continue and ethnic customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Aśleṣās-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles . They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśleṣa - Naga.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

" Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."


Dick Nixon with Pat Ryan Nixon in 1960



After serving as VPOTUS for eight years with POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon campaigned with vigorous ideological speeches in the old stumping, handshaking style.

Despite his Good Old Party credentials, Nixon lost the Nov-1960 election to a charming young senator who knew about camera lighting, television cosmetics, and eye contact. By a narrow margin, the winner was POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy

Although trained by law school to be an attorney, Dick Nixon considered himself to be an accomplished historian. Further, he was obsessed with his own legacy [2] and strove to defend the historical record of his accomplishments [2].

Ironically, most academic historians find RMN's historical understanding to be self-serving and frequently incorrect.


RMN overarching concern was securing his place in history. [2]

RMN won the POTUS-37 election on a platform of frugality and curtailed spending. RMN then authorized and supervised the massively wasteful expenditure of a colossal foreign war [6]

The war, he believed, due to the advice of his inner-circle counselors, would ensure his political legacy [Surya].

  • a plethora of graha in 6 [misdoings, accusations] including the disregard-for-consequences [Mūla] group = Kuja-Budha-Guru - all three concentrated into Mūla-3 meetings, publication, media-messaging.
  • Professor Surya occupies

As RMN descended into deeper paranoia, self-references to the grandeur of his presidential legacy became more frequent. He wrote several self-reflexive political history books that were panned by academic historians. Nixon's governance policies and campaign rhetoric relied on the conservative [2] rhetoric.


Nixon's public relation spinners promoted an image of his father as a simple green-grocer who provided fresh vegetables and other food supplies to the local neighborhood.

Surya's environment in Dhanus-6 shows that Dad's life was much more complex. It is possible, although not a matter of public record, that his father may have been involved in certain unsavory financial activities due to Surya in bhava-6 rules 2-finaance + Surya yuti Budha-Kuja-Guru all in [commercial-Mūla-3]

At minimum, dad would have been a very complex person with diverse financial and professional grievances. [6]

Angry dad

Nixon was deeply attached to his protective mother, and he often referred to her saintly qualities in his political speeches [Chandra-7-lagnesha].

But in all of his political blustering, despite Surya + Mangala + Budha + Guru showing that his dad had a huge influence on him, adult Nixon had little to say about his male parent.

According to his biographers, young Richard Nixon was bullied by a deeply conflicted father. Dad did a doctrinal conversion into Quaker faith when he married Nixon's Quaker mother. But Rahu in bhava-9 suggests that dad [like his son] used the Quaker credenda expediently. Dad showed both anger and distancing to intimidate his son. Nixon later gained a reputation as a confrontational personality who assumed that others were trying to hurt him.

intensely jealous * fiercely ambitious * dedicated to Mother * musically gifted * loyal in marriage


[Chandra in classroom-7] feels most at-home in contractual, promissory, bargaining, partnering environments.

Among other twosome activities, RMN was said to have been an excellent dance-partner. During POTUS years, he and PRN enjoyed evenings out in Washington D.C. for ballroom dancing with couple-friends.

Although Dwight D. Eisenhower had little to say about his VPOTUS and was said to dislike the sneaky RMN, neverthless RMN remained in the lieutenant contract for eight years.


Nixon's mother was profoundly dedicated to the nursing care of two of her fatally sick sons. Shani in 5th-from-Chandra shows the mother's dutiful efforts toward her children.

Mom abandoned RMN for several years of his childhood while focusing upon an ill sibling [who died] [and likely starting his lifelong threat-of-abandonment-crisis] Yet RMN never stopped praising his sainted mother.

Typical of Chandra-7, Nixon remained deeply attached to his mother throughout his life.

  • Nixon sanctified his mother's life to the point of hagiography, using anecdotes about her maternal virtues in most of his political speeches, presumably as a form of self-validation. Chandra lagnesha

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations


Chandra activates 7th-from-Chandra signifying the importance of marriage as a foundation of the identity. Published after his death, Richard Nixon's love letters to Pat show that he was deeply needy and emotionally attached to his wife.

Typical of Karkata nativities who often prefer an elder spouse, Pat was born in 1912 while Richard was born in 1913.

Normally, a predominantly caretaking marriage

  • the emotional focus of a Chandra-7 union = nourishing protection of one's own personality, physique, and social identity.

Lifemate-1 is often a do-it-all persona who undertakes the defense of one's well-being

One becomes their lifetime project.

  • most importantly for an intimate relationship, from Makara-Chandra lagna, Shukra-parivartamsha-Shani rules 1 + 2 + 5 + 10

Pat Ryan Nixon was clearly a capable woman.

According to the marketing spin of RMN handlers, Dick Nixon met lifepartner Pat Ryan Nixon during a community theatre production.

  • Shukra rules-11, community events
  • RMN was immediately smitten by her voice [Shukra] as she performed a singing role.

She was confident on stage [5th-from-Chandra].

  • Unlike Richard, she was not shy. She had already performed credible roles as teacher, farmhand, retail clerk, and housemother for her own father and brothers.
  • The future Mrs. Nixon however, was more cautious about the slightly obsessive attorney Dick, and she continued to date other men until his political career began to look like an compelling opportunity.

Lifepartnership with a Caretaking spouse

Work Ethic

The parents of Pat Ryan Nixon and her siblings treated their children as farm workers throughout their childhoods.

As her parents became ill,. Pat took care of everyone. Pat nursed her dying mom. Mom died PRN's age 13. Then, Pat cared for her surviving dad and brothers. When dad died, PRN's age 17, she started working in secretarial roles where she took care of the business. Later she worked briefly as a high-school instructor, taking care of the students.

[7th-from-Chandra-7] Wife-seeking Richard Nixon would have been emotionally seeking a lifemate with caretaker powers.

He needed a woman who was sheltering, nourishing, and protective. Yet he also needed an organized and businesslike partner, with secret-keeping capability = Shukra-Kumbha-8 parivartamsha fundraising, obligatory networking-Shani-11.

Pat had the right stuff . When Aslesha Nixon the suitor found perfect-fit Pat, RMN persisted against her ambivalence, until she finally accepted his offer of marriage.

  • As the story goes, young adult Pat insisted on her right to date other men. But [Aśleṣa] Dick would not release his claim upon her attentions. In order to remain in her life, deeply needy Nixon would drive her to meetings with other men.

Observers of their quizzical marriage opined that pleasantly average, friendly [11] Thelma Ryan counterbalanced RMN's aggrieved and accusing self-pity [Aśleṣa] with her steady, maternal presence. Overall her identity was reflexively identified with her husband.

Primary Adviser in a Two-person career

Lifepartner-1 was RMN's primary counselor above all others.

Commentators have remarked that in the early decades of their marriage, RMN listened carefully to PRN's protective advice [Chandra-7 advisors].

The pinnacle of their joint career arrived when RMN won POTUS-37 during Shani-Rahu bhukti. [An intensely challenging era for most mortals].

Pat worked diligently to support and protect [Chandra] her husband, travelling constantly with Richard during campaign season. She is said to have felt that he was vulnerable to negative influences, and she stationed herself as a bodyguard against people who did not like him (of whom there were many).

[Chandra-Makara-Draco] [7]

Socially conservative, culturally comforting

Public Image of the Modest, Maternal Wife

For decades, Plastic Pat exemplified the modest but stylish mid-century feminine profile that came to be known as California Republican Style.

PRN had earned a college diploma, and she boasted a respectable work history in retail sales. She briefly taught high-school business skills classes. PRNs main role on the campaign trail was maintaining the " adoring gaze" of the dedicated political wife. PRN appeared as a100% dedicated, always-nourishing, conservatively minded wife-and-mother.

This attitude would later turn on him during the Watergate scandal."

Consequences of Crime [Vimala Yoga]

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon [comforting Chandra occupies political Dhaniṣṭha-1] One of several crimes leading to his Congressional Impeachment was RMN's substantial tax evasion. Although he was impeached for this tax offense inter alia, RMN was never convicted of any crime due to the pardon granted by his friend and successor, Gerald R. Ford. Budha provided a protective [Vimala Yoga] suggesting that imprisonment or involuntary seclusion would not occur.



The Mūla-pada-3 complex is governed by Ketu-3 = mental health.

POTUS-37 committed a documented series of paranoia-driven felony crimes at the highest level of public trust.

Paranoid behavior began to emerge at onset of [cohort-management Mūla-3] Budha Mahadasha [age 59.3 until age 76.3]

In the Whitehouse, normally an intensely collaborative environment, RMN famously worked in a locked office-12

Budha activates Ketu-3, mental dissociation.

RMN's 5-cluster made him vulnerable to exploitation. His existing paranoid ideation seems to have been stoked by those advisers who were using Nixon for their own purposes.

Budha-Budha svabhukti - Obsession with Documents

RMN's hated adversary JFK was believed by some operatives to be a traitor, including RMN's close friend the notoriously manipulative J Edgar Hoover ]

Historians suggest that RMN was trying to ferret-out and destroy documents [Ketu-3 documents] showing Nixon's vindictive involvement in JFK's assassination. RMN believed that his enemies possessed this documentary evidence, and he was obsessed with destroying it.

Budha-Budha svabhukti - Burglaries, looking for documents

12th-from-Chandra Budha-6 likely excavated the depths of his subconscious [four graha in 12th-from-Chandra ] to justify the burglaries

Budha-Ketu bhukti - dismissal and disgrace

During no-limits, no-boundaries Ketu bhukti, the truth could not be contained. Nixon was quickly convicted due to clearly demonstrated evidence of his criminal involvement, and he quickly resigned to avoid impeachment.

High-Contrast Public Narrative vs. Consensus Reality Facts

Grievance and Mistreatment [6]

Nixon recounted a childhood that was plagued by overwork and unfair competition from others who had more privilege, more resources, and better life foundations.

Biographers do not corroborate RMN's narrative of mistreatment in school. His school life appeared materially normal. RMN played high school football, gave musical recitals, and had an after-school job - all of which were [and are] normal high-school doings. RMN was socio-economically average for the area. His grades were sufficient to attend college and law school.

  • What WAS likely happening was bullying from his father [Surya] and brothers [Budha-Kuja].

Budha rules the emotionally aggrieved 6th-from-Chandra

As an adult, Richard Nixon defined himself as a rough West-Coast outsider [Rahu] who was barred from the easy path to political ascension enjoyed by the "white-shoe" East-Coast establishment.

  • Yet, RMN held a law degree from Duke, a prestige East-coast institution, and he practiced with New York City elite attorneys.
  • Typical of Mula, Nixon reported an interpretive Ketu-disconnect between the reality and the story.
  • Under pressure, a Paranoid personality style may have caused him to attribute threatening, pernicious, stalking, intimidating motivations to normal and typical environments - such as competitive, free elections.
  • Psychologists opine that PPD is often the result of childhood abuse.

While historically authoritative from a first-person perspective, RMN's books are considered shallow and self-justifying. His truth-assessments rarely admit the errors in political judgment made during his terms in office. He seemed constitutionally unable to admit mistakes. [6]

frustration, jealousy, and resentment against unfair bullies

POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon was known for his confrontational persistence in the face of obstacles that seemed to him to be intentionally blocking his progress toward the top of the mountain.

He expressed frustration, jealousy, and resentment that those with more treasure, more privilege, and better family connections seemed to have better results than himself . Budha-6 conversation about jealousy.

By tenacious persistence and eradicating certain enemies, Nixon did reach the top POTUS-37 But sadly at the onset of Budha-Budha svabhukti his shielding friend J. Edgar Hoover died, and Budha-6-Mula greatly expanded his paranoia. J. Edgar Hoover had been protecting everyone who was implicated in the Kennedy Assassination, including Nixon.

For Karkata-born, Brihaspati often produce an abundance of perplexing and apparently contradictory beliefs.

At the same time the ideologue RMN was preaching vigorously against Communism [Rahu-9] he was pursuing advanced global diplomacy tthat melted decades of non-cooperation with ... the leading Communist government and its producer-consumer population.

Exploiting RMN as a political shield, Kissinger started the negotiations which effectively opened USA markets to the China Trade [Guru 6 exploitation via doctrine].

Yet simultaneously, RMN sermonized against the wickedness of the most terrible enemy of the USA - the Communists . The "other" Guru narrative demanded that the enemy be not collaborated, but rather soundly defeated.


Too Much [Mūla] 6

Nixon struggled to appear relaxed and comfortable in his own skin, but internally he was dogged by a lifelong narrative of intense jealousy and victimization [being eaten] .

Despite his Chandra-7 balancing intuition, Nixon was said by his work associates, even from earliest days, to have been socially maladjusted and awkward in public. The aggrieved cluster of [Mūla] in-6 contributed to his reputation for being sneaky and added to his tendency to seem disconnected [Ketu] and off-balance.

[Shukra-8] rules 10th-from-Chandra

Recent journalistic forensics have begun to reveal that Pat Ryan Nixon was not an innocent victim of her husband's vindictive actions.

Apparently, PRN knew much more than she ever admitted. She knew about the Mafia connections, financial fraud, and criminal acts against enemies. While keeping the secrets, PRN was informed about RMN's 1960 burglaries of JFK's physician's office, and RMN's part in arranging the 1963 murder of JFK.

Trade and Diplomacy

RMN promoted the hero-narrative that he personally had opened Western trade relations with China. In his autobiography, RMN frames himself as an internationalizing diplomat and trade expert.

Historians opine that RMN's confronational style was the very antithesis of the diplomatic process. Kissinger and K's team did the diplomatic work on back-channels. They used RMN as a convenient political shield, mainly useful for glossy handshake photographs.


Nixon played several musical instruments proficiently. He had developed entertaining skills in musical theatre,, due to his Shani parivartamsha Shukra. Richard and Pat met in a musical theatre production, where she saw his "fun side".

Shani-Rahu bhukti

Following the decease of his mother, Nixon joined the election race for POTUS-37 . His trademark anti-Communist rhetoric [Rahu in bhava-9] won the popular vote by a narrow margin. However, the country was deeply divided over a hated war that was killing and maiming children, and Nixon's hawk position would soon destroy his temporary Rahu-charm.

Rahu's ruler Guru-6 obsessed with enemies

Documented evidence shows that LBJ and RMN collaborated with Mafia-sourced marksmen to assassinate JFK "for the good of the country". RMN was already involved in the world of criminalized gains due to four graha in Dhanus-6.

Shani-Guru chidradasha

Nixon became extremely worried about enemies [6]. He stopped listening to Pat, and started listening only to a small team of close advisers, who stoked his paranoia. [6, wrong advice]

As Shani Mahadasha segued into Budha Mahadasha, RMN won re-elections.

Weakened by his worries, Nixon became isolated by his predatory advisors during his second term, and began to succumb to persecution fantasies. [Budha rules 12-fantasies]

Leadership amsha

Vriscika-Rahu occupies [10th navamsha] passion for undisclosed amplitude of social authority

Rahu's classic over-reaching rise and proportionally low fall

From Shani-Rahu until Budha-Ketu

From Rahu's peak as a political victor winning the highest office in the land during Shani-Rahu bhukti, to being humiliated as a common criminal during Budha-Ketu bhukti, RMN exemplified the effects of political passion.

Rahu-9 passion for ideological righteousness = structured by Shani

Rahu intakes drishti of advising, partnering, contract-making Shani-11 with reinforcing Shukra parivartamsha.

  • Elected POTUS-37 during Shani-Rahu bhukti

However, Shani is also the terrifying randresha. Ultimately, Shani produces stronger outcomes in Kumbha-8 mulatrikona catastrophic upheaval.

Ruler of [Rahu in bhava-9] = internationalizing Dhanus-[Guru in bhava-6]

RMN envisioned himself a brilliant mind on world affairs, a diplomat extraordinaire, and a globalizer in the post-war era of peaceful international cooperation.

During Shani-Guru chidradasha, RMN did indeed achieve milestones in international affairs.

  • However, like double-faced Shani, Guru produces both beneficial [9] and deleterious [6] effects. Like Shani's effects on Rahu, ultimately, Guru's strong effects upon Rahu emerge from His mulatrikona, Mūla-bhava-6.

Rahu's ruler Guru-6 expands worldview + increases paranoid clairaudience

Rahu-9 in the emotionally talkative, instructional 3rd-from-Chandra

Nixon came to "hear" that he must take measures to "protect his legacy" even before his legacy had developed.

Nixon installed a secret audio-tape system (Rahu = tape, 3-documentation) to record all White House conversations and phone-calls [4]

Rahu's Great Fall via Snake-Tape

Although this surreptitious [Rahu] device indeed provided Mr. Nixon with a short-term advantage (Rahu advantage) in that he knew (or thought he knew) what others "really believed" (Dhanus belief) about him, this illicit mechanism ultimately caused risk-rewarding Rahu's Great Fall.

Nixon reported a childhood that included frustrations of two ill brothers and a tired father working to make ends meet.

Budha-Ketu bhukti

Following the collapse of his leadership authority, RMN lived in disgrace. As a political pariah from age 61 until death age 81, he was held in contempt by most of the nation and shunned even by his own party.
