BPL commentary

For Chitra - Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Mangala-ruled paradigm of Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. As authors, Chaitrika often illustrate their works with fine drawings. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Tula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Shukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Shukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. Chaitrika pada 3-4 can be found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, musical instruments, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial exp

Randhresha is often a trail-breaker.

dark-horse POTUS win during Ketu-Shukra bhukti

The equality of JEC's marriage to lifepartner RS Carter was initially criticized by more traditional voices, especially when RSC was sent on diplomatic missions and placed as his primary adviser.

  • In the years since, many now have learned to respect marriage as an inherently advising, mutually respectful relationship.
  • Throughout the post-patriarchal cultures, participation of feminine lifepartners in the lives of public figures has become widely normalized and expected.


duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

[Śaśaka Yoga]


  • Shani-Tula * overburdened agreements * restricted leverage * mandatory bargaining * strict rules for making agreements * structural compression upon kidney-pancreas * rigidly regulated match-making * must form socially approved partnerships * must honor the lowest-common-denominator in deal-making * mandatory fairness * must normalize social justice * unyielding obligatory diplomacy * must advocate for equity * exchanges must be lawful * must continue conventional negotiations * scarce trading resources * maintainer of old bargains

After Shani matures at age 36, there is a vast increase in comprehension of the rules of the social order

after Rahu matures age 48, there is a vast increase in understanding of the vicissitudes of human passions, ambitions, and opportunistic desires.

  • With [uchcha] Shani-1 casting the elite-responsibility 10th drishti to Rahu-10, one may expect to achieve social maturity after age 48, then continue in a distinguished high-visibility career for the remainder of the lifetime.
  • Such individuals rarely retire from public life.
  • At the time of this writing, JEC has passed the age of 95 and is still working on social-justice related projects.


Shani rules

  • bhava-4 patriotism, stablity, education, security, foundational culture, routines
  • bhava-5 politics, elections
  • JEC founder of Carter Center, supervisory organization promoting fair conduct in democratic citizen (4) elections (5)

JEC's internationally powerful [uchcha] Shani-1 = born at the precise degree of exaltation (10 degrees).

Intense Chandra-yuti-Shani drishti into bhava-7 emphasizes diplomacy, contractual relationships, agreements, trust, marriage

SHANI is a blocker and a finisher, rarely a starter

During 1980 Ketu-Shani bhukti +++ Shani-Gochara-Tula, Carter's own political party failed to support him for 1980 re-election.

The broad reasons for JEC's loss of party support included Shani-related complaints, such as

  • too slow in getting things done
  • too much burdened by regulations, policies, and precedent
  • excessively long deliberations before taking action - also Chitra
  • ttoo much worried about long-term consequences
  • too much immersed in prolonged no-result negotiations
  • tolerance for conditions of scarcity ("energy crisis") and limitation
  • generally stodgy and perfectionistic

Unwilling to "speak softly and carry a big stick" like boasting POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt , JEC was accused of being weak, dithering, and indecisive.


rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)


  • Rahu-Karkata * shimmering illusion of security * craving for customary rhythms * risky policing * ambitious home-building * mask of ancestral belonging * extravagant loyalty to the homeland * tantalizing defenses * over-reaching patriotism * fabulous farms * exceptional fisheries * grandiose gardens *passion for oceans * fascinating ethnic routines * marvelous localities * intriguing owned properties * extraordinary cetaceans * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of caretaking * seeks privilege via caretaker parent-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * in svabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous executive decisions * thrilled by iconic status * craves symbolic importance * hungers for regulatory authority * outsider who cleverly insinuates into lawful governance * cleverly challenges official rules * mesmerizing ascent to high social status * may pose as a boss * shimmering smoky illusion of legitimate power * trespasses cultural limits of old hierarchies * boundary-breeching hunger for commanding roles * ambition for elite rank * desires to hold a respected position * opportunistic climb to top of the corporate pyramid * culturally-mixed reputation * ambition of the father's family


Authority-seeking Rahu in bhava-10 occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking 10th-from-Chandra

  • Upbringing in a southern agricultural state (Chandra farming) and his overt show of respect to his mother "Miss Lillian" promoted public emotional trust in his lawfulness and sincerity.

Shani-1 casts regulatory, lawful, executive 10th-drishti into Karkata-Rahu-10

  • His ethics (Soma, customs) and public service including elections monitoring and Habitat for Humanity have been distinguished by sobriety and orderly process
  • JEC's sincerity and honesty have never been questioned (rare for a POTUS)

Chandra-1 karmesha

  • functions as parental, guardian, schoolteacher figure of protection and nurturing
  • Karkata high-visibility roles range from home-building to elections stability to college teaching to Sunday School lessons.

Rahu-Karkata ambitious defensive roles = JEC served the national defense as a USA Navy officer. Karkata = navy, defense

Mutual drishti between Guru-Vṛścika-2 ++ Rahu-Karkata-10

  • brings faith-based convictions into JEC's high-profile leadership focused on support and protection for vulnerable populations

Rahu-10 hierarchical disrupter aspires to break glass-ceilings

  • remarkable ascent from son of Georgia rural peanut-farmer origins to naval officer to Georgia State Governor to POTUS-39 to University professor and effective global diplomat (unofficial)
  • as a political outsider [Rahu] following the disgraced Nixon Administration, JEC seemed ready to overturn a rigid corrupt hierarchy

Boundary-breeching Rahu leadership style

JEC was criticized internationally for giving his wife and best-friend Rosalynn (Shukra-11) too much purchase in his presidential decisions.

In the modern era , special ambassadors have become commonplace.

  • Yet, in 1976-1980, there was a conservative furor about a wife-and-mother [Karkata] political outsider [Rahu] being granted a special ambassador leadership empowerment.

Particularly in the third world countries that were unfamiliar (Rahu-vs-Chandra) with concept of women leaders and unaccustomed to the northern culture of shared responsibilities and respectful equality in marriage, RSC's ambassadorial ministry and representational authority were perceived as an insult to the real leaders (Rahu poseur)

Ketu * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Makara-Draco * formally dissociates from strict regulations * dissolves caste hierarchy * meaningless rules * vacuous laws * walks away from social authority positions * severance from executive roles * not limited by public protocol * ignores conventional structure * disregards class barriers * releases a cold blue cloud of institutional order into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the cultural foundations * absentee mother-figure * disregards local customs * dissolved property boundaries * wanders from the ancestral home * often away * ignores conventional schooling * irrelevance of habitual folkways * surrenders nationality * dismisses bondage to parents * abandons the established routines * may prefer to live free from fixed roots


JEC's pre-presidential life as a military submarine commander, agribusiness peanut farmer, and Governor of Georgia received more public approval than his presidency.

His post-presidential work has been consistently dignified and respected.

  • Only Ketu Mahadasha fell below expectations.

Ketu Mahadasha * age 49.7 until age 56.7 = 1975-1982

The Ketu President = one-hit-wonder

JEC produced what many consider a failed presidency

Often cited by historians as the least popular or accessible president since POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge , JEC was considered a weak chief executive who seemed constrained by parochial moral principle

  • In the minds of the voters, JEC seemed to lack engagement with critical domestic issues such as cost of living, transportation (gasoline crisis), schooling, and security.
  • JEC generally lacked the support of the Congress.

Unsupported, unhooked Ketu

An outsider, JEC entered the POTUS job without the hundreds of loyal appointments that normally provide the political infrastructure supporting presidential effectiveness.

  • JEC offered the Chief-of-Staff job to two of his campaign advisers, but they both refused it.
  • Therefore, he operated the Cabinet without an intermediary Chief-of-Staff.

Ketu broken chain

1976-1979, the big emergency = fuel-supply-chain labeled as "energy crisis" .

  • 40 years later, obstructionist critics of the Carter Administration continue to insist that the Energy Crisis was created by supply-chain incompetence in the Carter leadership.

As chief executive, perfectionist JEC was perceived as clueless and ineffective

  • He was quickly succeeded by an insider from the gas-and-oil funded Republican establishment, POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan

Feminine Nativity


Agneya * Riksya * Karthika * Alcyone

BPL commentary

For Krittika births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.

Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born ladies are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius.

Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures. Feminine births in pada-1 are often distinguished by an athletic figure and personal independence...

Themes of valuation, individual intelligence, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Krittika-Pleyades

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

"... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please."

Chronic tension via the oppressive, irritating Mutual aspect of Shani in Bhava-8 +++ bhava-5

Surya-yuti-Mangala-5 receives the disciplined constraint of Vṛścika Shani in Bhava-8

As a Navy wife, RSC moved herself and her young family constantly from military base to military base. Kuja is also the home-dissolving ruler-of-12. Along their ascent from teeny farm town to the global elite, the Carter Family lived in dozens of places, from humble huts to the USA Whitehouse. They rarely stayed more than five years in a single location.

At her age 18, RSC aborted her college education (Mangala-4) in order to marry the ambitious JEC on a promise (Kuja activates 7 pledges) of security and fun (Surya-4).

Her mother was not pleased (Chandra-12 ruled by Kuja).


Due to mutual Kuja-Shani drishti, her childhood home environment was considered respectable poverty. The overall home situation continued to be modest and active [Kuja], and governed by an persistent work ethic [Shani] well into her 90's.

  • Guru-Meena * much sleep * theoretical understanding * broad inner guidance * optimistic imaginings * inspirational dreams * intuitive beliefs * doctrine of esoteric understandings * expands the scope of contemplative awareness * multiple prayers * permission to envision

rather than amusing the Whitehouse guests with pricey new dress designs,

  • RSC gained a reputation for penny-pinching and humorlessness.

Sweets-seeking Shukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (Typically, alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also)

RSC appears to have fully avoided the default debauch of [nīcha] Shukra-6. Instead, she chose (wisely!) the other fork-in-the-road, the path of Seva.

Alternatively, Shukra [nīcha] may indicate a ministry of service benefiting women [Shukra] who suffer from substance addictions, behavioral addictions, criminal history, low self-esteem, or other victimizing imbalances.

RSC's ministry on behalf of those suffering mental illness and the incarcerated is widely respected.

Shani in Bhava-8 = occupies Vṛścika karakamsha = secrets, trauma-healing

  • = impeccable public reputation, attention to status and position, long-term success following a conservative, conventional lifestyle path

Success at a slow, steady pace with many setbacks and much resistance. With a long life and unswerving dedication, many of RSC's initiatives have gained traction (Vṛścika re-starts, rejuvenation)

  • Shani activates the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Shani occupies the emotionally catastrophic, constantly-spinning-and-changing 8th-from-Chandra .

  • Among other effects, Shani in 8th-from-Chandra grants a long life to her mother. Mom died at RSC's age 72.

Dissociative Ketu resides in 99th-from-Chandra

RSC's father died of leukemia when RSA was 13. The family was financially stricken. Her mom worked several jobs to ensure survival, and RSC worked in a town beauty shop while finishing high school.

Although Chandra-1 grants RSC with a deep attunement to the ethnic culture including its habits of sacred worship, RSC has never preached at others. Rather, she calls upon non-doctrinal, nationally shared, humanistic values.

Ketu-Dhanus grants liberation from dogmatism and provides an easy release of outdated beliefs.
