Rising Nakshatra

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 companions.

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

[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.

QUOTATION 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."


Dick Nixon with Pat Ryan Nixon in 1960



After serving as VPOTUS for eight years with 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 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.

POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon [preaching Guru in team-talking Mūla-3] [Budha-yuti-Guru] + [Surya-yuti-Mangala] [6, grievance] Ideological crimes. The national electorate saw RMN mainly as a dogmatic foe of social-spending, contemptuous of liberal ideas. Feeling threatened by ideological enemies [6] RMN greatly expanded the deeply unpopular VietNam War. RMN remains hated by generations of Americans who remember his murder of anti-war protesting Ohio college students. Eventually, he suffered criminal conviction and unredeemed disgrace.


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.

  • 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-motherr.

  • "Richard Nixon often adopted a stance of confrontation rather than of conciliation and compromise. In his ambition to push his agenda, he sought to consolidate power within the presidency and took the attitude that the executive branch was exempt from many of the checks and balances imposed by the Constitution. This attitude would later turn on him during the Watergate scandal."

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.

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

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.

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.

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]

  • During Budha-Ketu bhukti, in the final paranoid months of his presidency, RMN surreptitiously recorded all Whitehouse West-Wing conversations - without the knowledge or permission of the people being taped. Nixon became obsessed with fantasized Invisible Enemies [Rahu-8 drishti into 12, and 12 owned/aspected by Chandra-6-Makara]. His paranoia rose to such a height that even at the end of extremely busy Chief Executive days, he secretly reviewed the tapes each night.

Rahu can be an impostor, albeit Rahu can fool many of the people, some of the time.

RMN wrote several books on international affairs [Guru-Dhanus-5 rules 3rd-from-Chandra] He referred to himself as an authority on the topic.

  • However, Nixon was not trained as a historian [Ketu-2, absence of historical knowledge]. Nor was he schooled in statecraft. During Nixon's POTUS years, USA foreign policy was directed primarily by geopolitical strategist, Henry Kissinger. RMN was perceived as a negotiating liability due to his vulgarity [6, 12th-from-gracious 7]. Critics of RNM's books such as Six Crises opined that RMN's historical narratives were driven by self-promotion or self-vindication, usually attempting to frame himself as the champion hero [Surya]. None of his books are considered intellectually important [Ketu-3].

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.

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 Fallr.

[Ketu-2 ruled by creative, talkative Budha-Mula-3 in vidyasthana]

[disconnection from empirical standards of truth, lapses of honesty]

Nixon was a storyteller. He described a childhood defined by his own crushing workload, two ill brothers, and a tired father working to make ends meet. His sainted and exhausted mother toiled endlessly with scarce resources to nurse the sick and feed their deserving but suffering family.

However, historians opine that RMN's middle-class lifestyle was as normal as his neighbors and schoolmates.

Like most American teenagers, RMN worked for a few hours after school. He also drove the family truck each morning, to pick up vegetables for his dad's shop. RMN was a musically talented youngster who received specialized musical tutoring, which would have been an unthinkable luxury were his family truly struggling.

He played high school team sports including football, which required frequent multi-hour team practice, both before and after classes. In a typical school day, the time needed to practice the supplementary music and sports would have not been possible if his grueling, survivalist grocery-store work has actually occurred.

Although the themes of exhausting stuggle for family survival and self-made-man-ship were clearly meaningful in his political narratives, RMN attended a private liberal-arts college and a prestigious national-level law school. He was given a solid educational foundation, and RMN was supported financially and socially along his pathway to leadership and earnings.

Ketu-2 can break the coherence [[chidrakaraka] of a factual history [2] into fragments of psychic disorder.

Budha-Ketu bhukti = May-1973 until May-1074

Ketu-Kanya-2 = argumentative and can be vulgar.

Budha-Ketu bhukti = period of severe dissociation from truth.

RMN denied all knowledge [2] of the burglaries which he had planned and authorized. He denied the existence of the tapes [2-records] that he personally had requisitioned, recorded, and stored [2, storage].

When the reality of the Watergate tapes was revealed to authorities, and the USA Supreme Court ruled that their contents must be disclosed, RMN appeared bewildered. He argued [Kanya] that the legal doctrine of Executive Privilege protected his personal recordings from public scrutiny. When told by the court that this doctrine could not be used to protect a crime [Kanya] RMN expressed [2] victimization and mistreatment [Kanya].

[Ketu Mahadasha] [age 75.0 until decease age 81]

Following the collapse of his leadership authority during Budha-Ketu bhukti, RMN lived in disgrace. As a political pariah from age 61 until death age 81, RMN was held in contempt by most of the nation and shunned even by his own party. Attempting to rehabilitate his public image, without success, RMN maintained the victim-narrative until his earthly end.
