BPL commentary

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, romance, 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."

FATHER ++ StepFather

Dad-1 = Surya + 9

Bio-dad was a wool-trader from Omaha, Nebraska and son of a prosperous banker.

Mangala in bhava-9 located in 6th-from-Chandra-nicha suggests the sad truth explained in GRF's memoires, that his aggressively dominating [Kuja] dad was emotionally dysfunctional [6th-from-Chandra -nicha].

GRF was born as Lesley Lynch King. Following his abuse of GRF's 20-yo mom, the bio-dad played no role in son GRF's life, although GRF's paternal grandfather [Chandra-4] did pay child-support until GRF was 16.

GRF had one, unannounced meeting with the bio-dad who suddenly turned up at GRF's high-school restaurant job, impulsively [Mangala] attempting to bond with a son he'd never known. Dad could retrospectively qualify as NPD lacking impulse control.

Dad-2 = 8th-from-9 ++ 8th-from-Surya

Gerald Rudolff Ford (9-Dec-1890 – 26-Jan-1962)

The stepfather [Vrischika-Chandra-4 + Makara-6] owned a paint-and-varnish company. Ford. Sr. had three more sons with GRF's mom. Ford Sr. provided a stable home, education, and moral guidance until GRF reached adulthood. At age 22, Lesley Lynch King officially changed his name to Gerald Rudolph Ford in honor of dad-2.

GRF was known for his willingness [Surya] to accept new political roles [Surya] as circumstances [Mithunaya] required. Because he was flexible and available and known for seeing both sides [Surya in dualized Mithunaya] GRF was called upon to fill many short-term [Mithunaya] roles that required teamwork and detailed documentation.

  • During the Warren Commission inquiry, GRF was appointed by Lyndon Baines Johnson to handle super-sensitive political information [Mithuna] .

  • As an highly experienced Congressional caucus master, he managed small teams (3) of legislators as they tackled a project to produce a working document.
  • His career was marked by frequent communication with his district and savvy handling of publications media.

Non-partisan social-networking [11]

  • Confident Surya in Mithuna Karakamsha is naturally gifted with social networking, community friendships
  • As a measure of his popularity [11] GRF served in the USA House of Representatives for 25 years with no interruptions, never losing an election.


Purvaphalguni lagna helped Ford to schmooze at elite functions such as the Bilderberg meetings due to his affinity for music-and-dance parties .

  • GRF maintained a longlasting friendship with POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon ++ POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon. The foursome of Dick, Pat, Jerry, and Betty liked to go dancing in hotel clubs around Washington D.C.

  • GRF was later found to have opened a clandestine information-sharing channel [Budha-12] with autocratic J Edgar Hoover at the FBI.
  • However, following a lengthy review of abundant evidence - much of it classified - [Guru rules 6-secrets] GRF issued a report which revealed no new information.
  • The commission was criticized for non-transparency [Vrischika].
  • National stability was preserved Chandra in Anuradha

GRF took charge of the Congressional investigation into the murder which traumatized the nation. [Vṛścika trauma]

  • JFK was reluctant to commit resources to the war in Vietnam.
  • Many held that the slaying was performed by Mafia snipers and paid-for by the steel cartels, which had grown rich during WW-2 and Korean War. They wanted an escalation of a profitable steel-weapons ground-war in Vietnam.


  • Despite video and still-photo which showed bullets arriving from several different angles, the Warren Commission concluded that a distressed /lone-gunman/ was the only person involved.
  • Despite strict police security, the shooter himself was quickly killed by a Dallas man.
  • The /lone-gunman/ conclusion seemed suspicious, and GRF was implicated in the collusion.

GRF had the ability to maintain private communication channels that were largely invisible -- even to his own colleagues.

  • For example, when the Warren Commission records were declassified, it was revealed that GRF had opened an exclusive private messaging channel with J Edgar Hoover, who had notoriously refused to share FBI data with other government agencies.
  • GRF [Aslesa] Budha apparently had the right style to connect with the Master of Secret Dossiers

GRF's political generosity [Guru] facilitated some rule-bending (Guru also rules 8-hidden matters, nondisclosure)

Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Guru ruled by suave Shukra-10

  • GRF was the sort of institutional governance worker who is often called a "utility infielder" (a baseball term that means one who is capable of being useful everywhere in the field).

Pūrvāṣāḍhā = so smooth politically that GRF was the first USA national legislator to be both VPOTUS and POTUS without ever being elected by the voters.

While announcing his commitment to the financial condition of the less well-situated, GRF's career was ensured by his financial backers. Shukra balances social position and public responsibility (10) with daily business (3).

  • GRF represented Michigan's monied elite.
  • He was always willing (Surya will power lagnesha) to listen (3) to the financial narratives of working folk.
  • However, the affairs of 3 are always in adversarial-to-elites 6th-from-10. The priority was 10.

GRF was often called /the Band-Aid president/

  • GRF maintained an agreeable, non-confrontational executive presence [Shukra] .
  • Yet the underlying national anger about Nixon's crimes (Shani rogesha) was still festering.

Shani is steady but stuck

Although Ford was able to impose much-needed public dignity [Shani-10] during a dangerously unstable national era, the high level of conflict (6) left him stalemated [Shani stuck].

  • GRF's decision to pardon Nixon's crimes was deeply controversial among the outraged electorate (rogesha-6).
  • Having brought neither enthusiasm nor accomplishment to his POTUS campaign, Ford was unable to win re-election.

Regulatory, statutory responsibilities

  • GRF took governance seriously [Shani]. His focus was not on personal power, but rather on relationships and legislation.
  • competent, sober and materialistic yuvati-pati-7 Shani-Urisha-10 paired with equity-seeking, deal-brokering Shukra
  • pleasant, smooth conditions of endurance in the profession of high-rank law-making.


A steady spouse with public-duty profile

  • yuvati-pati-7 Shani-10 in 7th-from-Chandra-4 suggests that the marriage partner's public behavior structurally supports the career reputation.

HEALTH rogesha Shani - addictions

  • Bhava-6 compulsive habit = addictions
  • 3rd-from-Chandra-nicha - Smoking = breathing = lungs

Shukra balance yuti rogesha Shani

  • Despite his athletic habits, GRF notoriously suffered from physical balance issues

Shani-ruled [Uttarabhadra] Rahu in bhava-8 fascinating secrets occupies the political 5th-from-Chandra

  • over-reaching, exotic, culturally unusual behavior in the realms of taxation, undisclosed information, camouflaged relationships, hidden assets

GRF became the secret-keeper in chief when he chaired the notoriously non-transparent, non-disclosing Warren Commission.

Although the Commission reported that JFK's murder was the work of a single suddenly-killed rogue sniper, most citizens believed that GRF was under pressure from the conspirators, and the truth would remain hidden.


GRF lived until age 93. Rahu-8 can indicate longevity.

Rahu in bhava-8 smoke

  • GRF compulsively smoked a tobacco pipe - about 8 bowls per day.
  • Eventually, he developed an abscessed tongue.

Chandra-Vṛścika-4 ++ receives incoming drishti from Rahu in bhava-8

Budha in bhava-12 hand-held implements, tobacco pipe ++ receives incoming drishti from Rahu in bhava-8

  • likely he was attempting to self-medicate from emotional-stress [Chandra]
  • Rahu-8 is looking for rejuvenating energy [8] which the nicotine-drug may have temporarily and fraudulently provided

Disintegration of family heritage, but payments continue

GRF's birth father hailed from an entreasured Omaha family. The birth-dad was abusive, and mom escaped. Later mom remarried and .

  • GRF's hometown schoolfriends, teachers, and scouting-leaders mainly presumed that his stepdad was his dad.
  • At age 22, GRF changed his own name to match his stepdad's -- and to assist his future reputation, since stepdad was a respected local businessman.

Still, GRF's paternal grandfather [Kumbha-7] sent child-support payments until GRF turned 16.

  • Thus an invisible but tangible connection to the birth-family heritage (2) was maintain via Ketu's ruler Budha-12 ++ Ketu located in 3rd-from-Budha = transactions, paperwork, invoices, payment receipts.

Feminine Nativity


Yoni * Bhagadaivata * Prakphalguni * Arjuni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a feminine 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.

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 ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Shukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games.

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, deal-brokering ability, and glamour in romantic relationships. Queenly and self-referential, they require equity in marriage and business contracts. Honesty is deeply important to them. Yet, due to Shukra's bargaining nature, the insult of disloyalty may be balanced by financial compensation.

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

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

Despite BBF's many public honesties about her previous divorce, BBF's struggles with (previously taboo) breast cancer, and her outspoken support for women's rights including abortion rights, her husband's political career was never harmed.
