Masculine Nativities

Swatika * Chotthi * Vayu * Nishtya

BPL commentary

For Swatika births of a masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Nishthya, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus. Their purpose is to broker trade agreements and balance the interests of multiple ambitious stakeholders.

Social justice, personal power

Rahu-ruled Swatika gentlemen are Mix-Master Middlemen. They tend to be fascinating figures. By skillfully mixing and trading with different folks, Swatika chaps build exotic new exchange relationships.

They are often found in policy organizations and government agencies, where their social equity work is distinctively multi-cultural. Their roles include trader, exchanger, bridge-builder, diplomat, negotiator, deal-maker, bargainer, marriage-matcher, alliance-designer, and other balancing activities that engage two mismatched sides within one functional agreement.

Swatika represents Rahu's desire to amplify Zukra's quest for harmonious agreements. Rahu challenges cultural boundaries. The mix-master may skillfully combine unusual agents and mismatched agendas in order to obtain a rebalanced status. Similar to Shataviskaka, the Swatika-born are mixed-system orchestrators who may take direction from Otherworldly sources. The character of Rahu is determinative.

Due to their Rahu-gifted ability to think outside the box, Swatika-born may realize previously unthinkable opportunities for diplomacy and fair exchange. Their success is noted in negotiation, trade-deals, and bargaining in commodities, ideas, or services.

In politics, Nishthya fellows may be associated with social, economic, or political integration of previously hostile or excluded participants. Their special talent is dealing with those who may be rogues, outsiders, stigmatized, or posturing frauds. Vayu-born graciously mix people and environments that were once segregated, by making successful pairings between ethnicities, religions, nations, or individuals of differing practice.

Their pursuit of a social justice agenda is not entirely idealistic. It is ultimately motivated by their desire to obtain privilege by facilitating partnership geared to increased barter, brokerage, and exchange.

Themes of opportunity, fascination with appearances, and acquisition of privilege may contextualize Swatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Swatika-Chandra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84.

"... a slow and deliberative character,

  • almost ponderous in thought and action

  • Yet, intelligent and logical

While he may be slower at arriving at conclusions than most people,

  • on final analysis his reasoning is sound

  • and his conclusion more accurate than others who may be more brilliant.

He is very religious, somewhat orthodox,

  • and his environment permitting will attend church regularly

  • or at any rate participate in some religious activity.

Many priests or ministers are found to have Swati on the Rising Point."

  • Mom was related to the legendary music producer Berry Gordy of Motown fame.
  • Mom lived with her adult son and his family in the Whitehouse during her JEC's POTUS tenure 1977-1981
  • Somana-yuti-Shani + Shani rules 4-home-house. Mom gained national attention as the strictly no-nonsense (utta-Shani) Southern matriarch, "Miss Lillian"

Nishturabhashi yoga

Mother = harsh disciplinarian. Miss Lillian was said to be punitively ethical, tightly organized, and pro-education. Shani rules 4-schooling.

  • For mixed-race persons in the American South of her era, such a rigid level of emotional containment (Chandra-Shani) would have been pragmatically necessary for obtainment and maintenance of social honor .


Chandra in Visaka suggests that JEC does not fear dangerous environments. One feels confident to bring higher understanding into shocking circumstances such as election violence. (Guru-1 rules Visaka)

JEC has been able to enter oppositional-defiant environments ruled by tribal or strongman cultures, without stimulating resentment, in order to make positive impact upon the fairness and transparency (Thula) of the citizen vote. The Carter Center's successes in election monitoring have earned worldwide positive attention.

  • post-presidential focus on charities for the poor, the homeless, the marginalized, the uneducated

Zukra-10 rules bhava-7 = Zukra-yuti-Budha = bargaining, pledges, fairness, equity, alliances, social justice

  • Zukra-10 rules 7 negotiation. JEC has engaged in conflict mediation throughout the world.
  • Using his prestige (SImha-10) as retired POTUS-39, JEC has achieved measured success in non-violent resolutions of major conflicts and human rights abuses.
  • He has been able to enter highly charged environments where no other leader has ever succeeded.
  • During decades in prominent public life, JC consistently expressed a clear view that equality in marriage and professional life (Shukra) = a natural function of Christian life.

During Zukra-Zukra swabhukti in 1982, JEC founded The Carter Center, which became a well regarded service training institution for non-violent conflict resolution and human rights policy,

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

  • Shani-Thula * uttama * heavy old 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

After Shani matures at age 36, there is a vast increase in comprehension of the rules of the social order and then secondarily after Rahu matures age 48, there is a vast increase in understanding of the vicissitudes of human passions, ambitions, and opportunistic desires.

With uttama-Shani-12 drishti to Rahu-9, one may expect to achieve social maturity after age 48.


JEC's internationally powerful uttama-Shani-12 = born at the precise degree of exaltation (10 degrees).

Intense Chandra-yuti-Shani drishti into bhava-6 emphasizes the Ministry of Service.

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

  • Azresa * 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 * 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-9 * passion for preaching * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous guidance * thrilling theory * dazzling dharma * outsider who cleverly insinuates into patriarchal roles * seeks importance via sacred teachings * fantastic philosophy * compulsive catechesis * zealous proselytism * intriguing ideology * ambitious father-figures * extraordinary professors * barrier-breeching guru-figures * culturally-mixed worldview * poseur of high catechism * shimmering illusion of sangha * fabulous faith community * surreptitious appropriation of priesthood * may appear as a wisdom-purveyor * smoky specter of principled understanding * extravagant globalism * trespasses cultural boundaries of patronage * fabulous fatherhood * opportunistic third marriage (if any) * social mobility via paradigms of belief


Dogmatic faith-driven Rahu in bhava-9 occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

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

Mutual drishti between Guru-Vrizchika-1 and Rahu-Karkata-9 brings faith-based convictions into JEC's high-profile social justice projects.

Rahu's typical Big Rise + Big Fall + Repeat during Ketu Mahadasha

  • remarkable ascent from son of Georgia rural peanut farmer to naval officer to Georgia State Governor to POTUS-39 to University professor
  • After a spectacular rise and a dark-horse win during Ketu-Rahu bhukti
  • as a political outsider (Rahu) JEC seemed to overturn a rigid corrupt hierarchy
  • incumbent JEC held a significant reelection advantage
  • Yet, Carter's own political party failed to support him for 1980 re-election

Boundary-breeching Rahu

JEC was criticized internationally for giving his wife Rosalynn (Zukra-10) 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 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)

Rahu in bhava-9 intakes drishti from social justice principles uttama-Shani-12

JEC's cautious pace and his insistence on using Christian ethical principles to guide (9) political decisions made him a target of criticism. 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.

Ketu * chidra-karaka

lagnesha for Vrischika radical lagna

Ketu = co-ruler of Vrischika

  • 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-3 * eccentric communications * disinterested in daily chat * writes on foggy abstract topics * dissolves messaging boundaries * implausible prophecy * wandering discussions * can handle esoteric information * irrelevance of normal mental narrative * abandons management tasks * dismisses the standard explanations * disregards conventional discourse * unless other graha in 3, may prefer to live free from younger siblings


Ketu Mahadasha * age 49.1 until age 56.1 = 1973-1980

The Ketu President

JEC endured what many consider a failed presidency

  • one-hit-wonder
  • from election during Ketu-Rahu bhukti
  • until end-of-term during Ketu-Budha chidradasha

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.

It was mainly the Ketu Mahadasha that fell below social-material expectations.

Nebulous, unhooked, disengaged Ketu

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

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

  • He 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

1976-1980, the big emergency = fuel-supply-chain labeled as "energy crisis" .

  • Obstructionist critics of the Carter Administration continue to insist that the Energy Crisis was simply propaganda (Ketu-3) to camouflage the supply-chain incompetence in the Carter leadership.
  • 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 nakshatrapathi 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

Vrishabha - Urisha-pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Zukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatrapathi Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of uniquely central, creative roles as independent evaluators within the artistic and financial worlds, in the music industry, dealing with wines and perfumes, and all aspects of beauty. Depending on Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward organizational leadership positions.

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."

Mangala in bhava-4 = Constant home shifting ++ interrupted education

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 rules 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.

Zukra-Kanya * nichha = RSC dedicated her career to a ministry of service on behalf of the mentally ill + the elderly + disadvantaged classes

  • Zukra-5 lagnesha = affinity for politics and entertainment displays.

RSC's aesthetic of frugality and austerity, influenced by her Zukra-Kanya in 6th-from-Chandra

  • instructed the Whitehouse entertainment staff to serve inexpensive meals
  • RSC re-wore her older formal gowns rather than amusing the guests with new designs
  • She patronized the arts as First Lady (arts 5) - Yet, the style of display was less for princes and more for paupers.
  • Despite receiving praise for her virtuous work schedule, RSC gained a reputation for penny-pinching and humorlessness.

Sweets-seeking Zukra 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)

  6. Shani rules Kumbha-10 == 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 grants a long life to her mother. (Mom died when RSC was age 72).

Chronic tension via the oppressive, irritating mutual drishti of Shani-and-Mangala.

Mangala-4 insists on vigorously moving forward in housing, caretaking, security-building
