Masculine Nativities

Visaka * Radha

BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.

Growth Shocks

Thula-Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities.

They are often found in advisor roles (Zukra) which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm (Guru) . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.

Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Zukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Thula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick (due to Guru rules 3-6).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

"... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

Mom = Mrs. Bessie Lillian Gordy Carter, a public health nurse and community figure. Mom was related to the legendary music producer Berry Gordy of Motown fame. Mom lived in the Whitehouse during her son's POTUS tenure, gaining national attention as the no-nonsense "Miss Lillian"


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

Chandra interacting with Shani-1 + Rahu in bhava-10

Chandra in Visaka suggests that he does not fear violent environments, but feels confident (Guru ruled Visaka) to bring higher understanding into shocking (Visaka) circumstances.

Carter was able to enter oppositional-defiant environments ruled by tribal or strongman cultures, and without stimulating resentment make positive impact upon the fairness and transparency of the elections process. The Carter Center's successes in election monitoring gained worldwide positive attention.

Karkata 10th-from-Chandra suggests a career in housing, shelter, patriotism, agriculture, foundational schooling policing and defense, and loyalty to the home culture.

  • Mr. Carter served as a US-defense naval officer (1947-1953). He served as head of US Armed Forces during POTUS-39 (1976-1980). His primary public role became the Chandra-oriented Habitat for Humanity organization which provided family housing.


Nishturabhashi yoga indicates that Mr. Carter was emotionally restrained due largely to his mother's disciplinary approach . Shani is yogakaraka for the Thula lagna which somewhat mitigates the most oppressive potential of Shani-yuit-Chandra, instead focusing the electro-magnetic emotional austerities upon the social behaviors. Miss Lillian was said to be punitively ethical, tightly organized, and pro-education.

POTUS-39's mother Miss Lillian was a professional nurse and a community activist. His mother, a biracial person, was considered to adhere to an extremely strict standard of personal moral conduct. (Chandra morality) 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 .

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kumbha * vigorous pursuit of community activism * warrior for economic progress * proactive linking * push toward regulated systems * pursues profitable roles * dominating energy in social networking * conquest of marketplace interactions * champion of distributed associations

Mangala rules radical Chitra

Mangala-Kumbha rules 7 negotiation. Carter has engaged in conflict (Kuja) mediation throughout the world. Using his prestige as POTUS-39, he 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. Also confident Chandra in Visaka Shakti

Heavy legacy pressure against free movement. Resistance to new ideas and direct action. Resentment toward constriction of physical appearance. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles, conventionalized identity, and conduct befitting an elder.
  • Shani-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * social resistance to natural rhythms * imposition of pragmatic routines * delayed (but not denied) parenting * class-conscious mother * limited creature-comforts * parental policing * obligatory caretaking duties *emotional withholding * punitive parents * class-structured ethnicity * uncomfortable discipline * oppressed sensitivities * dries-freezes the flow of nourishing liquids * needs regulatory order * blocked feelings * strict foundational schooling * proletarian home-culture

JC's powerful uttama-Shani-1 = born at the precise degree of exaltation (10 degrees).

Intense Chandra-yuti-Shani drishti into bhava-7 marriage suggests that the spouse is also patriotic (Chandra) and socially mature (Shani). During his long public life, JC consistently expressed a clear view that equality in marriage and professional life was a natural function of Christian life.

Risk-rewarding Rahu-10 desires an important regulating role in materially privileged, socially visible ranks. Exciting, potentially fraudulent, opportunistic character of the leaders, bosses and government officials. Thrives in culturally-mixed legislative, executive settings. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a boss, an authority-figure, a decision-maker, a legislator, a tyrant. Rahu-10 trespasses the cultural boundaries of governance authority, social dignity. Thrilling hunger for high-recognition, empowered reputation, respect. Ambition of the father's family

mutual drishti between Guru-Vrizchika-2 and Rahu-Karkata-10 brings values-based funding for his social projects

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

Rahu in bhava-10 intakes drishti from social justice icon uttama-Shani in Bhava-1

Rahu occupies 7th-from-Ketu during Ketu Mahadasha

1975-1980, JCr was criticized internationally for giving his wife Rosalynn (7th-from) too much purchase in his presidential decisions. In the modern era when "special ambassadors" have become commonplace, it would be less controversial. Yet, in 1975-1980, there was a conservative furor about a wife-and-mother (Karkata) political outsider (Rahu) being granted leadership empowerments.

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 "real" leaders in those fine lands.

Among his international critics, JC was considered to be a weak man (Ketu) unable to "speak softly and carry a big stick" in the preferred braggadocio style of POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt .

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 * ignores conventional schooling * irrelevance of habitual folkways * surrenders nationality * dismisses the parents * abandons the established routines * may prefer to live without fixed roots

Shani in Bhava-1 + Rahu in bhava-10

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-1 drishti to Rahu-10, one may expect to achieve social maturity after age 48.

From the Budha-Shani bhukti

(JC age 48) and forward into the Ketu Mahadasha, Carter uses his knowledge not for personal gain but rather for the common gain of the stability of the social order benefitting large groups of humanity . Rahu-10 utilizers his outsider status (as an elections observer) to accomplish the social-ordering goals.

The Ketu President

During 1976-1980 his age 52-56, Jimmy Carter endured what many consider a failed presidency from Ketu-Surya bhukti

until Ketu-Budha chidradasha.

Carter'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 and respect have also been marked by high dignity. It was mainly the Ketu Mahadasha that fell below social-material expectations.

Rahu occupies 10 and Ketu in Bhava-4 is ruled by a Yogakaraka uttama-Shani-1 in 10th-from-Ketu. When samchara Rahu transited Karkata, this impetus triggered an extraordinary mechanism for the one-hit-wonder that was the Carter Presidency.

Carter's post-presidential life as an international democratic elections supervisor and icon of the famed Habitat for Humanity organization, along with other charitable (Chitra-4) leadership activities, especially his work to ensure fair (Shani-Thula) elections in emerging democracies, continues to receive widespread public respect.

Ketu-Makara does the bidding of His powerfully exalted ruler Professor Shani-1 who produces a powerful, unyielding Panchamahapurusha Sasya Yoga. Although Ketu's ruler Professor Shani gives a relentless work ethic and a profound agenda for social justice, Ketu-4 himself is quite detached. Ketu-4 often signals a busy executive incarnator who is rarely at home.

Ketu naturally has spiritual agency rather than material or political agency, but considering the dignity of Shani and the ambitions of Rahu, it is not impossible that the normally dissociative 7-year era of Ketu Mahadasha would have produced the Carter Presidency. Shri Ketu Shri Ganesha removes all ego-attachments which are obstacles to spiritual realization.

Certain nebulous, unhooked Ketu features are nevertheless in evidence. While serving at POTUS-39, Carter did not develop an international power base of ego-motivated world leaders. Rather, his service was based in parochial ethical convictions (Karkata-10) based in the Baptist Christian traditions of his upbringing. To observers, Mr. Carter seemed either unwilling or unable to expand his leadership vision past that local tradition into a truly international perspective. It seemed like he lacked the ego-willfulness (Ketu; that most believed was a necessary tool for maintaining US domination of other lands and their leaders.

Most importantly in the minds of the voters however, Carter seemed to lack engagement (Ketu) with domestic concerns (4) such as cost of living, transportation (gasoline crisis), schooling, and security (4)

Often cited by historians as the least popular or accessible president since POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge , Jimmy Carter was considered a weak chief executive who seemed constrained by principle and generally lacked the support of the Congress.

Lacking structural support Ketu-Makara

JEC was a political outsider (Rahu-10) who entered the POTUS job without the hundreds of loyal appointments that normally provide the political infrastructure supporting a 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.

The main crises which marked his term as POTUS-39 were fuel supply-chain called "energy crisis" and housing issues (4, housing). Critics of the Carter Administration continue to insist that the Energy Crisis did not exist, and its policies reflected simple supply-chain incompetence in the Carter leadership.

JEC was perceived as ineffective and was quickly succeeded by an insider from the well-heeled Republican establishment, POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan .

Feminine Nativity

Krittika * Pleyades * Riksya * Agneya

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

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."

Kuja is also the home-dissolving ruler-of-12 for Vrishabha nativities. 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 JC on a promise (Kuja rules 7) 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.

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 indicates affinity for politics and entertainment displays. RSC's aesthetic of frugality and austerity, influenced by her Zukra-Kanya, resulted in the Whitehouse serving inexpensive meals and RSC re-wearing 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 forher 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)

Shani rules Kumbha bhava-10 high-profile public leadership roles == the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Mutual aspect of Shani with Mangala can be oppressive.

Mangala insists on moving forward yet Shani resists change

Shani signals the native to persist in the union regardless of obstacles.

Shani persists. Professor Shani as an agent of marriage feels obliged to absorb the stress of Mangala's perpetual battering competitiveness and restlessness into the marriage union without permitting a break-up.
