Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha-Delphinus * Vasu

BPL commentary

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

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

Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-oriented and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals, and they win.. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and dominated by men.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.

Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.

Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.

Themes of band-of-brothers, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."

Dad = Irish-American Roman-rite Catholic travelling shoe salesman

Dad was said to have been distant and often away. Surya in bhava-12

Dad notably suffered from alcoholism

Surya-Makara - Draco = generally a milquetoast placement for Surya, unless the ruler is strong.

  • Surya-Savitra's ruler = nichha Shani
  • Shani is overwhelmed by rogesha Chandra
  • Shani is overwhelmed by ambitious, empowered Rahu
  • Observers noticed paternal occasions of domestic violence, irregular employment, and insufficient family funds. '
  • Shani drishti upon His tenant Surya does confer social responsibility, despite some unavailability and imbalance in the father's character

Guru-yuti-Ketu occupies pitristhana.

Ketu adds the absenteeism. However, dad was at home occasionally. He earned sporadically (Guru rules 11-earnings) and he was known to both of his sons. Surya in 10th-from-Chandra suggests that both parents respected their marriage, and that mom maintained dad's dignity regardless of his lapses.

CAREER - SURYA = 10th-from-Chandra

Nancy's Dad

Nancy Davis had a complex childhood with three father-figures. Yet RWR recognized only the third father-figure = her stepdad Loyal Davis, a major Republican political patron. 9th-from-2nd-from-RWR's Chandra-3 = dad of 2nd wife = Surya in bhava-12

In 1965 RWR's age 54 during Guru-Surya bhukti with absolutely no political experience, RWR was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors to deliver the message.

Formerly a minor cinema actor, the head of the screen actors guild, and then a television advertising prompt-reader, RWR catapulted to the California Governorship from incredibly unlikely beginnings.

Yet, it becomes likelier if the role of Nancy Davis Reagan's stepfather is appreciated.

NDR's mom-and-stepdad were exceptionally well connected politically. They had been close friends of POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower ++ POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower .

Although Nancy's Dad was not the exclusive funding agent, Dr. Loyal Davis consistently promoted (Surya) RWR to his king-making associates. They found handsome, sociable, ambitious RWR to be suitable material for their gamesmanship purposes.

Yuvathipathi Surya = alliances, agreements, contracts

Surya in bhava-12 emerges from invisibility and gains superior leadership strength in the emotionally dignified, social-ordering, leadership-seeking 10th-from-Chandra .

Famed for his hands-off management style and the notoriously over-simplified One-Page Memo, RWR's decision-making (Surya) protocol consisted mainly of distributing authority among his top-level deputies.

In practice, RWR was a generalist. He relied almost entirely on the recommendations of his management staff, which included attorneys and lawmakers but was also heavy on public-relations folk from the cinema world (Chandra-Rahu-Shani-3).

It was often insinuated that Governor RWR possessed only a weak grasp of the legislative issues which defined California's political climate. However, his support teams were coherent and strong (3)

By delegating virtually all decisions, an older but well-rested RWR was able to make substantial governance decisions without losing energy.

Bright, smiling, non-committal Surya in bhava-12

Although Surya-Makara - Draco is weakened at birth, Apollo receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from ruler nichha-Shani-3 messaging, communications, announcements.

Most importantly, being not over-burdened, RWR looked brightly cheerful and handsome in media press release. (Zukra-1)

Always available for a photo opportunity (Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3) speak a word of warm praise, or extend a firm handshake, RWR was known as handsome (Zukra-1), friendly, and unlikely to contradict his handlers. Respected and empowered, his executive staff were generally loyalists. If told (3) by his handlers to hire or fire, he reliably followed instructions.

Surya-Makara - Draco = older, weaker, hierarchical, orderly

Coming to the governorship at age 67 from a foundation of zero previous political or institutional experience, RWR carried in neither prejudice nor information. Surya in bhava-12 internationalism

Surprising to many due to his spacey, nice-guy demeanor, RWR became an effective agent in the international (12) process leading to the tear-down of the Berlin Wall. RWR is credited (Surya credit) with personally helping to end the Cold War.

RWR = Walk-in?

From a psychic perspective, Reagan -- like Lincoln -- is considered to be a walk-in. According to the story, the original person was not happy with the current life experiences unfolding, becomes suicidal, and offers the body-identity to a transient agent. Similar to Lincoln's task to end the Civil War and abolish slavery, RWR's walk-in had a crucial task to help financially collapse the USSR. The transient agent occupied the body successfully.

The world teetered on the verge of WW-3, a powerful intervention was needed, and an experienced, ego-engaged politician would have failed to follow orders. Compliant, inexperienced RWR was the perfect fit.

While others with more skill and focus were laboring behind the scenes to make it happen, RWR presided over the collapse of the Berlin Wall, which marked the end of the Cold War and minimized the threat of the global annihilation.

From a basis of zero political experience, Reagan was resoundingly elected to two terms as California Governor, followed by two popular terms as POTUS-40. His personal diaries for those sixteen years of elite governance empowerment are filled with dribble such as "made a few telephone calls today", indicating that he was not making conscious executive decisions, and he had minimal understanding of what was happening around him.

RWR did what he was told. Zukra-1 looked good doing it. The Berlin Wall fell, and the USSR's economy collapsed. Once the primary mission was accomplished, RWR's mentality also collapsed. In the final years of the second POTUS term, and following the exit of the guest agent, the identity-less body vegetated in a prolonged state of deep dementia until the organ systems finally ceased functioning.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by forward pursuit * settled into warrior rhythms * needs vitality
  • Chandra in burdened Bharani * needs to carry valuable burdens * safeguards the treasuries * protects precious values
  • Chandra in classroom-3 * comfortable with the cohort * familiar with interactive communication * calmed by repetitive announcements * feels the tidal pulse of daily chat * feels sheltered in the parlor * soothed by siblings * intuitive information delivery * settled into the habits of writing * needs continuous commerce * accustomed to routine messaging * emotionally attuned to the rhythms of conversation * undulating signals * ethno-cultural gestures * intuitive handcraft

  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * * emotionally expedient * sensitive to exotic folks * risk-rewarding mother * needs exciting opportunities * unconventional parenting style * comfortable in unorthodox environments * undulating desires * craves nurturing * feels exceptional

CAREER * Chandra

Chandra in classroom-3 = in administrative bhava-3 = commerce, announcements rules 10th navamsha

Chandra-3 ruled by Mula-Mangala-11 might be expected to manifest as a high-earning corporate functionary, process regulator, or sales manager with warm handshakes = a familiar face in the office

Chandra-yuti Shani ++ Shani lagnesha rules 10th-from-Chandra

Political career starts SLOW but starts BIG

For 33 years, from college graduation age 22 until age 55 when he was elected Governor of California, RWR was a minor Hollywood film actor, a career announcer and product representative ++ long-time manager of the cinema actor's labor-union.

RWR 's political career did not evolve in the typical way.

He did not start by winning local offices + small elections, slowly building networks, visibility, and reputation.

Instead, in 1966, the kingmakers put RWR's name on the state ballot. RWR had ZERO political background. Yet, the California Republican assets successfully organized a win for RWR.

In this way, a 55-year-old Hollywood commercial spokesperson with no previous political experience was able to gain symbolic authority over California = the largest state economy in the USA and one of the top economies worldwide.

COMFORT ZONE = Chandra-Bharani-3

Chandra-Bharani has a need to acquire treasuries, and feels comfortable in activities of wealth-collecting + asset preservation.

RWR understood money, banking, and business (3) finance. Chandra's ruler Mangala-11 connotes a dynamic approach toward larger economic systems, driven by ideology and vigorous communications (also Budha-yuti-Mangala).

Rogesha Chandra feels comfortable in disagreeable circumstances (6) RWR handled lawsuits and employment conflicts as the Screen Actors' Guild president.


= highly complex + demanding bond with ambitious Mom

Chandra rogesha = Mom often in service role

Mom = Nelle Wilson Reagan = an Irish-American housewife and amateur dramatist. Nell was deeply involved in her Disciples of Christ religious congregation. She participated in church management and communications Chandra in classroom-3 .

Rogesha matrikaraka Chandra = ruled by Mangala ++ Budha-yuti-Mangala.

Busy Budha rules 5 = Mom's local theatre roles earned pleasant reviews in their small-town newspaper.

Nell was a doctrinally-identified mother. Her church and its teachings were as central as her love for her sons. She stabilized the effect of RWR's irregularly employed, alcoholic father with the support from her religious congregation. Mom arranged for Ron to attend a college sponsored by her church. Ron majored in Communications and played football for his alma mater.

Chandra Mahadasha * age 11.5 until age 21.5 = period of Mom's strongest influence

bandhesha Zukra-1

RWR claimed to have been devoted to his mother = She may have been an intensely demanding parent, but as adults, RWR and his mom were friends. Still, Somana-yuti-Shani -nichha ++ Somana-yuti-Rahu suggest that an overburdened, rigidly dogmatic-yet-ambitious mom could not have been an easy parent.

Zukra-ruled bandesha = 2nd-from-Chandra = second marriage.

Wife-2 was addressed as Mommy. The second marriage was perceived as emotionally close and the female partner served as parent-protector.

MOTHER = Chandra-Bharani + Rahu-Bharani + Shani-Azvini (nichha)

Somana-yuti-Shani-nichha would suggest that mom demanded a respectable social status.

Somana-yuti-Rahu- would suggest that while she was enforcing the rules (Shani) mom was also breaking-or-bending the rules (Rahu). Mom would have been passionate (Rahu) about social mobility (Shani hierarchies) via financial achievement (Bharani).

Adding complexity to the mother's character, the harsh emotional withholding and disciplinary implications of nishturabhashi yoga = significantly relieved via doctrinal Guru-in-mutual-drishti.

Elder BROTHER * Neil Reagan = 11th-from-Chandra

RWR's only sibling, elder brother Neil Reagan = represented by Ronald's Zukra-1-Kumbha residing in 11th-from-Chandra.

Neil Reagan earned a bachelor's degree in economics (Zukra-Kumbha) from Eureka College This was the college of his mom's faith congregation = 11th-from-Chandra = Kumbha-Zukra. Like RWR, elder brother Neil started a radio management career (3) in the Midwest. Neil then followed Ron to Southern California, where both men developed materially successful careers in radio + television.



Generally, the more graha which are aligned upon the R-K axis, the more one experiences the volatility of R-K's attraction-repulsion polarity.

  • Somana-opposite-Ketu indicates apathy toward the lifepartner.
  • There are numerous (Guru multiples) partnerships. Rahu adds passionate desire to the emotional constitution.
  • Shani represses emotional need, and enforces social conformity. ,The result is complex and contradictory relationship behaviors.

Nichha-Shani often indicates an akashic history of blood feuds or racism. RWR grew up in an Illinois era when Irish persons were denigrated as shiftless alcoholics by the previous wave of Scandi-German settlers.

A feeling (Chandra) of social inferiority (nichha-Shani) felt by both him and his mom, would have contributed to RWR's later expedient bonding Somana-yuti-Rahu with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era.

Ambitious + Conservative + Sensitive to Conflicted Situations

  • Rogesha Chandra feels comfortable in toxic, unbalanced environments, including crime
  • Financially soothed Chandra-Bharani becomes uncharacteristically risk-rewarding via Rahu
  • Relentless emotional need for social approval characterizes nishturabhashi yoga = disciplined, formalized, regulated feelings
  • Bharani Chandra needs money

The extreme edge of Shani-fear is blunted by inclusive Guru drishti,

Yet, the attraction-repulsion cycles of R-K put most relationships on a roller-coaster pattern of undulating personal opportunism mixed with authoritarian rigidity and a bit of greed.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

Chandra-Meza marriages

For the Chandra-Meza nativity, the first marriage (Thula) and second marriage (Vrishabha) are both ruled by Zukra. Therefore, the condition of Zukra is paramount in determining the happiness of married life.

Zukra-Kumbha-Shatataraka-1 = overall equity and harmony in the first two marriages.

Two marriages are indicated by multiplier-disconnector Guru-yuti-Ketu residing in 7th-from-Chandra


  • alliance-1 = bhava-9
  • = 5th-from-5th celebrity, drama, fortunes, worldview contains Guru-yuti-Ketu suggesting a multiple-union pattern
  • Life-partner-1 = cinema star Jane Wyman = famed dramatist (9) .

Challenges in lifepartnership-1

  • yuvathipathi Surya occupies the disagreeable 6/8 angle vis-a-vis bhava-7.

  • Marriage-1 endured for seven years.

  • Chandra-yuti-Shani imposes an emotionally demanding, stressful drishti upon Thula = marriage-1.

  • RWR would have experienced the almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-3 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • alliance-2 = Vrishabha bhava-4.
  • parenting, household, mother, caretaking
  • Life partner-2 was addressed as Mommy
  • POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan

  • Marriage was long-lasting + committed but non-exclusive.
  • NDR functioned as a soberly nurturing caretaker (4)
  • her Chandra-Karkata occupies RWR's 10th navamsha, indicating her importance to his professional career

Significant Chandra compatibility. in union-2

Favorable for dignity of public life.

During the final POTUS-40 years coinciding with NDR's protective Chandra Mahadasha, RWR slowly slipped into the Alzheimer's brain ailment = nichha-Shani-Mesha brain-3. NDR worked assiduously to protect her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny.

  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * proactive communications * energized signaling * dynamic reporting * clipped speech patterns * abrupt announcements * champion of vigorous messaging * pushes toward direct commands * forward thrusting gestures * incisive speech * forceful writing

As ruler of 3 intake drishti from Rahu-3, dynamic and friendly Mangala-Dhanusya attends meetings, short-term travel, dinner parties, and makes announcements.

Mula Mangala-11 karmesha also makes decisions. Executive authority (10) was expressed primarily via economic systems. Mula adds an element of ideologically driven, risk-tolerant apathy. RWR's patrons aimed to dismantle (Ketu-Mula) the USA social services agencies in order to reduce the tax burden on commercial business. They succeeded, with catastrophic effect on the fragile, social-service-dependent underclass.

Nichha-Kuja occupies 10th navamsha

  • RWR's public profile was competitive, masculine, but also ultimately vulnerable to unsavory influences and unwell

CAREER = Kuja = social networking, economic boosterism, sporting vitality

Kuja-yuti-Budha-11 occupies the inspirational, doctrinal, ideological, believing 9th-from-Chandra

Mangala-1 rules 10-karmesha ++ 3=communications containing Chandra

Emotionally it is not so easy to produce this constant stream of cheerful messaging, since Budha rules 3+6 from Chandra-Meza

Lagnesha Shani-Meza occupies communications-3

RWR experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas but rather by his ability to enunciate the corporate talking points.


RWR was famously beholden to large corporate interests (Shani) during his entire career. RWR was not an autocrat. RWR was an announcer. RWR was well compensated for his dramatic portrayal of an authoritative leader.

Shani + Rahu + Chandra create an Endurance powerhouse emphasizing the promotion of opportunistic ambition (Rahu) via steady and systematic ability to accomplish (Shani) tasks of messaging, gesture, product marketing, talking points.

The extraordinary charisma that Reagan sustained from high school until his retirement, can be largely attributed to the wide scope of influence radiating from Rahu-3

Both when Governor of California and when POTUS-40, the hallmark of RWR's administrative style was his enthusiasm for the physical body and its energy, especially personal appearances and announcements.

  • For example, when naming a new group of State Department employees to embassy positions (an honor for them) RWR personally telephoned each employee. In his diary, RWR mentions with some pride that no president before him had ever taken the time to make personal calls.

Budha-11 working with incoming drishti from Rahu-3.

  • Reagan was not calling to have a conversation or make a decision. He was calling to make an announcement. With the added personal touch of generous dharmesha Zukra-1.

  • RWR would have intuitively known that his personal voice was much more exciting and self-promoting than a signed paper letter.

BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion.

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 interpretive 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 may be experts on the subject of relationships, both seen and unseen. They have a broad understanding of the power of polarities. They are often found in advising and recommending roles (Zukra) which engage ideology or theory (Guru) such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Thula-Visaka, the husband may also be impoverished or ailing (due to Guru rules 3-6 from Thula).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-treasury, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic action. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 ladies are often found in teaching and healing work, especially when using their expertise with the sexual-reproductive energies.

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-Radha

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

"... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character , even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."

POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan had a famously contentious and alienated relationship with her eldest daughter. Patti Davis Reagan described her relationship with mother as abusive. Patti described NDR as judgmental, withholding, and intimidating. NDR-and-RWR's second child, son Ron, also remained distanced from and adversarial to his parents, who did not support his career in dance theatre.

Surya Mahadasha * age 54.2 until age 60.2

Punarvasu-Surya-Mithunaya -9 rules gainful, large-systems Simha-11

  • The plethora of graha located in political, ideological bhava-9 Mithunaya indicate the highly complex relationships between staff, information, and message.

Surya-yuti-Kuja * ashta-harana

NDR was often criticized for her micro-management perfectionism. Her leadership style was perceived as passive-aggressive, invasive, and controlling (Kuja).

  • Yet, NDR's manipulative methods were generally successful in administering the variety of people and processes that she oversaw during her husband's eight years as California Governor ++ another eight years as POTUS-40.

Surya-yuti-Budha = details, details * Budha rules 12-concealment

Along the path of her husband's career trajectory. NDR was a multi-function manager of all details large and small.

  • Most importantly, by her shrewd and capable management, NDR was able to conceal (12) RWR's slip-sliding mental deterioration from the voters' awareness.

Three Father-figures

Surya + Kuja + Budha

Graha yuti Surya often suggest additional father-figures..


19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 2 + 7 = original (bio) father-figure

  • NDR's bio-dad was a car salesman Surya-Mithunaya. NDR's parents were divorced soon after her birth. Bio-dad played no further conscious role in her life.


21 deg Surya (Puna) pitrikaraka rules 11 = 2nd-from-Chandra (mom's family) = 2nd father-figure = her mother's brother-in-law = husband of mother's sister = uncle was long term foster father

  • From infancy until fourth grade, age 9, NDR's maternal uncle, the husband of her mother's sister, served as NDR's primary father-figure.
  • Surya pitrikaraka
  • NDR recounted that for the first nine years of her life, all of her friends and neighbors believed that her foster-dad uncle was actually her father. During these years she was called by her birth name, Anne Frances.


23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 9 + 12 = adoptive father surgeon Dr. Loyal Davis = mother's second husband = benevolent guide (9) + behind-the-scenes political manipulator (12)

  • Age-14 in 1935, NDR was legally adopted by her stepfather, Dr. Loyal Davis. He was a wealthy Republican Party donor wielding national political influence. Teenage NDR was introduced to monied society as a debutant. Under Davis' fatherly auspice, she completed a liberal arts B.A. at Smith College (9, university)

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Karkata * svakshetra * comforted by familiar nourishing protections
  • Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya * soothed by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure * needs dignified orderly habits
  • Chandra in classroom-10 * comfortable with law-and-order * socially recognized protector * parental style of leadership * Familiar Face to the public * sensitive to social protocol * accustomed to regulations * soothed by peak position * acculturated to executive routines * settled into the rhythm of respected roles * feels the repeating pulse of elite status * calmed by climbing hierarchical steps * anchored into lawful responsibility * undulating authority


the de jure wife-counselor = the de facto decision maker

Chandra in classroom-10 = karmesha

elite leadership roles, familiar to the public, well-know caretaker parent-figure in the partnership known as Ronnie and Mommy. NDR held top social positions and was often the primary executive decision maker as the power behind the throne.

Chandra Mahadasha * age 60.2 until age 70.2

Chandra Mahadasha encompassed most of NDR's service in the First Lady role 1980-1988. Choosing for her expected ministry of service a caretaking initiative, the Foster Grandparents program, NDR was widely praised for her commitment to community well-being.


Mom = actress + socialite, Edith Preston Luckett.

Pushya-Chandra in classroom-10 = both Nancy and her Mom were highly recognizable familiar faces in their social worlds

Mom was an aspiring cinema actress who first married a car salesman, but quickly divorced him. Mom pursued her stage-acting career with limited progress. Mom then re-married the political kingmaker, Dr. Loyal Davis.

Mama had abandoned little Anne Frances (later called Nancy) for six years, to be raised by relatives. Shani mahadasha imposed many years of separation, punctuated by occasional maternal visits.

After the remarriage, NDR rejoined her mother at the end of Shani Mahadasha. Once reunited, Nancy and her mother formed a dutiful caretaking bond Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya. Mom died age 99 when NDR was 66 years old.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • bhava-4 stability, security, parenting, property ownership, ethnic basis, roots, protections
  • POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan

Matching Axis = compatible alliance

Matching features are often evidence of long-term joint purpose in a relationship

The Rahu-Ketu axis of one partner should match the radical Chandra-lagna or the radical rashi-lagna of the other partner.

  • RWR Mesha-Chandra-yuti-Rahu-yuti-Shani matches NDR's Mesha-Thula R-K axis in D-1 + D-9 + D-10. From the time of their marriage ceremony,
  • Ronnie-and-Mommie lived and worked together in a two-person career.
  • NDR often said "My life began when I met Ronnie."

Marriage Dynamics = Chandra + Shani + Rahu + Ketu

Chandra-Karkata = comforted by caretaking, suggesting a parental role in marriage. RWR referred to NDR as Mommy.

This lifetime alliance works with RWR's unique combination of Chandra-yuti-Shani +++ Chandra-yuti-Rahu.

RWR's nishturabhashi yoga imposed Shani's legendary discipline and patience upon his matrikaraka, the treasury-acquiring Bharani-Chandra.

Like most folks with Chandra-yuti-Rahu, RWR would have experienced an almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to his Ketu resident in 7th-from-Chandra.

NDR's Ketu-7 provides the same quality of eccentric detachment and unconventionality to her marriage behaviors.

The Davis-Reagan union was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive.. A multiplicity of partnerships in a spirit of permissive detachment is assisted by RWR's Guru-yuti-Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

NNDR's Ketu-Azvini allows her to mesh successfully with RWR's liberated relationship expectations.

Mental Health * Emotional Trauma

Borderline Personality Disorder is a psychological behavior pattern associated with the trauma of abandonment. The result is often a virtuous public life showing deep concern for outsiders, combined with a painfully dysfunctional homelife. NDR's daughter reported NDR's adult parenting issues, drug use, and cruelty.

It has been speculated that NDR exhibited the classic symptoms of abandonment-trigger BPD.

Documented behavior patterns included gracious social warmth + public pleasantness to those outside the family p paired with angry attacks and accusations inside the family.

In addition, NDR showed protective adoration of the narcissistic husband, paired with vicious mistreatment of one or more children.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka **** virya-karaka

Mangala = burnt = with 2 degrees of Surya

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of interaction * competitive commerce * proactive information delivery * energetic group collaboration * dynamic debate * dominating gestures * lively writing * kinetic conversation * push toward explanatory instruction * champion of process management
  • Mangala in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * drive toward doctrine * champion of paradigmatic belief * pursuit of patronage * dynamic preaching * philosophy of conquest * aggressive or sexualized paternal energies * dominating military father-figures * growth-challenging paternal behavior
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * kinetic creativity * glorious innovator * high-energy confidence * dynamic genius * dominating force joins willful charm * competitive politics * brilliant winner * physically active father-figure * vigorous theatrical display
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * proactive communications * energized signaling * dynamic reporting * clipped speech patterns * abrupt announcements * champion of vigorous messaging * pushes toward direct commands * forward thrusting gestures * incisive speech * forceful writing


Kuja rules

  • 7-partnership, alliance, agreements
  • 2-treasuries, family traditions, speech, face, values

Mangala in bhava-9 rules Mesha-7 = 10th-from-Chandra

Counted from Chandra-lagna, competitive Kuja = yogakaraka ruler of 5 + 10 (politics, leadership)

leadership agenda of communications management, public relations spin, talking points, media-messaging, meetings, and teamwork. Kuja-yuti-Surya + Kuja-yuti-Budha

contains Ketu-Azvini

NDR = best known as the caretaker for a long-serving + long-ailing national leader who was being propped up by corporate interests

Mangala Mahadasha * age 70.2 until age 77.2 = Retirement

Retirement was financially endowed by RWR's grateful supporters. The seven years of Kuja Mahadasha focused upon (2) financial assets (7) ailing husband, along with minor political activism in promotion of medical stem-cell therapies (Kuja-9)

Budha * jamayah-karaka (sibling) * sandeza-karaka (message) * zisya-karaka (student)

Busy Budha rules 9-ideology, father-figures, preaching

++ 12-enclosure, invisibility

Budha rules Mithunaya Svamsha

  • Budha-Mithunaya * svakshetra * business communications * articulation of specific instructions * informative pronouncements * messages about commerce * hands-on management * signaling explanatory information * detailed diagrams * talks about publication * interpretative interactions * commercial translation * hands-arms-shoulders send descriptive gestures
  • Budha in bhava-9 * narrative of father-figure * witty guru * celebrated communicator * repeats the catechism * reiterates the doctrine * skillful grandchildren * discusses patronage * detailed articulation of worldview * explains the paradigm of belief * talks about sacred texts * examines the dharma * interprets theoretical claims * delivers quick sermons * logical investigations into philosophical truths * chatty priests * religious dialogues
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * amusing explanations * entertaining chatter * central roles in communication * brightly clear descriptions * dramatic enunciation * confidently delivers instruction * articulation of radiant certainty * political messenger * talkative father-figures
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * competitive communications * scripted actions * impatient conversations * potential for sexualized messaging * penetrating explanations * direct instruction * signals forward action * pioneering movement * outspoken opinions * talkative brother-figures


Budha Mahadasha * age 10.2 until age 27.2 * teenage years

After a long, lonely Shani Mahadasha, NDR's Budha-Budha svabhukti reunited NDR and her mother . NDR moved from her childhood home to her mom's new home in an exclusive Chicago suburb. With a new name and a new social status, teenage NDR became a socially connected young debutant. After college, she attempted to launch a career as a Hollywood actress facilitated by her mom's Hollywood contacts (9 = Surya + Kuja + Budha).

Yet like mom, NDR would soon be called into marriage-and-management.

Budha rules Mithunaya 10th navamsha = management, communications, event planning, travel itineraries

Messaging, talent manager, public-relations, teamwork, invitations, letter-writing

NDR maintained some remarkable literary correspondence with royalty and celebrity folk (9). NDR served as a confidante and longstanding friend of UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales . The pair corresponded frequently. It was said that His Majesty felt understood by the former first lady. Her Chandra-Karkata-Pushya matches his Pushya radical lagna.

Mixed results in political communication

Bhava-9 can be patronizing, and Surya-9 has an unsavory quality of self-righteousness often tagged as karako bhavo nashto.

NDR's Just Say No anti-drug campaign was widely ridiculed for its condescending, socio-psychologically ignorant approach to the addiction epidemic. Her communicative style was often criticized as self-important, elitist, and contemptuous of non-elites.

Nevertheless, NDR's signature service initiative as First Lady, the Foster Grandparents project, was widely praised as sensitive, realistic, and caring. The Chandra-stability anchoring this initiative was a good fit for its patriotic middle-American audience.

Mommie the Manager * Mithunaya graha rule 2 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 12

In 1984, RWR won re-election to a second 4-year POTUS term

During the next three years, 1985-1986-1987, RWR's Alzheimer's symptoms became increasingly pronounced, and his team reported his attention deficit.

  • NDR confidently stepped into the theatrical talent-manager role.
  • She was prepared to lead.

It was reported that NDR did not ask for help and she did not accept advice (Visaka lagna).

  • She managed RWR's schedule and handled his communications.
  • NDR hired and fired staff, including high-ranking aides and department heads, by simply telling her husband what to do, and ensuring that he did it.

Generally, he followed her instructions.

NDR had a precise, detailed, and often verbally aggressive Budha-yuti-Mangala management style.

  • NDR alienated the people who had been elected or appointed to provide the president with information, advice, or perspective to support his executive decisions.
  • Yet those close to the Gipper realized that he was not able to make decisions no matter who might be supporting him.

Looking back, many believed that NDR's unauthorized executive actions indeed averted a crisis of public trust.

  • Some political observers opined that NDR had likely been substantially directing RWR's governance behaviors for many years -- likely as early as his California Governorship.

As a NDR was widely compared to Edith Bolling Wilson, who under similar leadership-crisis conditions similarly acted as a shadow president when her husband was debilitated by strokes.

Hidden drugs = Zukra-8 lagnesha

According to her daughter's memoires, NDR self-medicated daily and extensively, with amphetamines to work and suppress appetite, and barbiturates to sleep.

Recounted in her daughter's autobiography to have been an abusive, belittling mother, NDR offered neither explanation nor apology.

  • Further, the daughter accused NDR of maintaining her petite figure by the use of "pills to wake up and pills to go to sleep", all carefully managed to avoid crisis.

Dutiful yogakaraka Shani in Bhava-11 rules

  • 4-home, stability, parenting
  • 5-politics, games, speculative finance, elections, drama

Shani in Bhava-11

Originally, following her mother's model, she pursued a career as a Hollywood actress. However, despite generous funding from her parents, NDR's thespian aspirations seemed to gain little traction.

Ultimately her income would depend upon her husband's (Guru) magical conservative-political fundraising powers Shani-yuti-Guru

SSimha-Shani pressure from political rules
