Masculine Nativities


Shrona * Hari * Apramaya * Azvattha

BPL commentary

For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social order.

The Listener * Shaman

Shravishta gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Sravana are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.

As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law. In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet, being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.

Shravana-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Shravana can be singers and musicians. Sravistha gentlemen are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing. When the occasion calls for careful listening to the beat of the music, their steps may be practiced and elegant.

Measured, appropriate tone

Shravana must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law.

Although public dignity remains important, Sravana fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow [Chandra] of the ethnicity or the nation. Combining Chandra's orientation to the past with Shani's need for reliable rules of conduct, Shrona folks may appear to be rather old-fashioned. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in the rites of public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.

Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.

"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,

  • particularly to those less fortunate than himself.

This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life

  • without injuring anyone else to do so.

He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.

  • The extent of his activities in this direction,

  • will of course depend on his station in life.

Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.

He will also be very religious

  • and will participate in church activities

  • if his environment permits."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Surya * pitri-karaka (father) * jyoti-karaka (light)

  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the hierarchical structuring rashi of Shani
  • Surya in bhava-1 * center of attention * bright embodiment * intelligence for competition * focus on appearance * genius for innovative self-expression * athletic entitlements * eye on personality * sparkling center of embodied vitality * father may be an icon-competitor-inventor


Dad = Irish-American Roman-rite Catholic travelling shoe salesman. RWR was said to have resembled his Dad Surya in bhava-1

Surya randhresha:

  • Dad notably suffered from alcoholism. Observers noticed paternal occasions of domestic violence, irregular employment, and insufficient family funds.
  • Having an unpredictable addict parent prone to bursts of sudden force, RWR would naturally have developed the patterns associated with Adult Children of Alcoholics.

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

  • Surya-Savitra's ruler = nichha Shani
  • Shani is overwhelmed by yuvati-pati Chandra (partners, mother)
  • Shani is overwhelmed by ambitious, empowered Rahu
  • Shani drishti upon His tenant Surya in bhava confers social responsibility, despite some volatility in the father's character

Dad was at home occasionally, and he earned sporadically . 11th-from-Surya = father's profits, ruled by Kuja-12. Dad was known to both of his sons.

Surya in 10th-from-Chandra suggests mutual respect between the parents, suggesting that mom maintained dad's dignity regardless of his lapses.


Surya in bhava-1 gains superior leadership strength in the emotionally dignified, social-ordering, leadership-seeking 10th-from-Chandra

The extraordinary charisma that Reagan sustained from high school until his retirement, can be largely attributed to the remarkably vital Dhaniztha Surya-1 in context of the Teflon scandal-proof Sravana lagna

Brightly camera-seeking, visible, entertainment-oriented, natural politician.

Both when Governor of California and when POTUS-40, the hallmark of RWR's executive style was his bright enthusiasm for the physical body and its energy, especially personal appearances and kingly [Surya] dispensations.

  • 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.

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

Few people criticized RWR for trying too hard. RWR was a natural public figure, famous for being himself, apparently never worried, always smiling and making jokes.

  • Surya activates 8-identity transformations, secrecy, hidden assets

The 10th drishti of nichha-Shani-4 adds a mature approach to leadership roles and tolerance for bureaucracy. However as randhresha, Surya is primarily an agent of those undisclosed agents who are operating behind the veil.

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-4 = 2nd wife's father = Surya in bhava-1

NDR's mom was an actress and socialite. 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 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 [Surya].

QUOTATION = Das commentary, "The Sun is in Capricorn or the Sun is in Aquarius, and the Sun is aspected by Saturn."

"You will overcome your enemies, and will prosper due to government favor."

Zukra yogakaraka activates 5 + 10.

In 1965, RWR's age 54 during Guru-Zukra bhukti with absolutely no political experience, RWR's camera-ready talent was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors.

RWR was formerly a minor cinema actor, the head of the screen actors guild, and then a television advertising prompt-reader (Zukra-2 reading). In the 1966 election, RWR catapulted to the California Governorship from incredibly unlikely beginnings.

Yet, RWR's sudden appearance as the top leader of the nation's most populous state becomes likelier if the role of Nancy Davis Reagan's stepfather is appreciated.

Looks like a radiant, responsible, capable [Shani] older leader

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-Makara-Draco = older, weaker, hierarchical, orderly
  • Apollo receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from ruler nichha-Shani-4

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-4 * digbala * comfortable with familiar routines * calmed by caretaking * seeks continuous oscillating motion * sensitive to ethnic folkways * contented by recurrent rituals * soothed by customary habits * tranquilized by rhythmic waves * needs pulsation * nurtured by gardening * follows local pathways * feels rooted into the land * settled into home-keeping * undulating patriotism
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted * punitive parents * sensitive to class boundaries * soothed by structure * needs rigid routines * heavy maternal workload * comfortable with elders * familiar with hierarchies * fearful mother * calmed by strict rules * feels like a worker
  • 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


Personality + physical appearance

  • a handsome, very pleasant and pleasure-seeking, rather disengaged, relaxed, large-bodied [Guru], predominantly materialistic [Shani] class-conscious (nichha-Shani), physicalized personality

very complex yet profoundly stable yuvati-pati Chandra yields loyal counselors, reliable peer-advisers, lifepartner support, and advocacy

When the going got tough, the tough (advisers, advocates, supporters, partners) kept going.

  • 06-Nov-1984 (RWR age 73) re-elected POTUS-40 * Shani-Chandra bhukti * digbala Chandra in 7th-from-10th (career advisers) activates 10th-from-10th representation ++ Shani Ashtamsha-Vrischika.
  • Most biographers agree that RWR's mental functioning was becoming increasingly impaired.
  • Yet, his leadership profile was sustained in the public eye by his wife NDR directly acting on his behalf (7) effective legal representation (7) and a team of dedicated advisers (7).

yuvati-pati Somana-yuti-Rahu = alliances, agreements, contracts

  • Chandra is a deal-maker, comfortable with reaching a settlement, declaring a judgment.
  • Chandra-4 ruled by behind-the-scenes, under-the-table, Mula-Mangala-12
  • Chandra-4 occupies 10th-from-svakshetra 7
  • Rulers of 1 + 2 + 7 join Rahu in bhava-4

Chandra-4 rules 7

Wife as Mother. RWR persistently addressed his dear wife NDR as Mommy. NDR established herself as his caretaker. After her drama career floundered, NDR was asked to be RWR's minder and protector. During RWR's final decline into terminal illness, NDR supervised his nursing service.

Somana-yuti-Shani ++ Shani lagnesha activates 10th-from-Chandra

COMFORT ZONE = Chandra-Bharani-4

Chandra in classroom-4 patriotic, ethnic, often photographed riding horses on his beloved California ranch.

  • Ruler of 4th-from-4th (Karkata-7) occupies 4, suggesting a natural environmentalist with emotional need to own real-estate, boats, and land vehicles.
  • Chandra-Bharani has a need to acquire treasuries, and feels comfortable in activities of wealth-collecting + asset preservation.


= highly complex + demanding bond with ambitious (Rahu), disciplining [Shani] Mom

Chandra Mahadasha * age 11.8 until age 21.8 = period of Mom's strongest influence

RWR claimed to have been devoted to his mother

  • Somana-yuti-Shani -nichha ++ Somana-yuti-Rahu suggest an overburdened, rigidly dogmatic, yet ambitious mom
  • She may have been an intensely demanding parent, but as adults, RWR and his mom respected and supported each other (Soma yuti Shani lagnesha).

Mom = Nelle Wilson Reagan = an Irish-American housewife (4). Nell was deeply involved in the rituals and routines of her Disciples of Christ religious congregation, in which she felt security. Mom stabilized the effects of RWR's irregularly employed, alcoholic father with the support from her worship society (4 worship, ritual).

Mom arranged for Ron to attend a college (4) sponsored by her church. Ron majored in Communications (Mangala owns to Chandra). He played football and was a sports announcer for his alma mater (4).

Somana-yuti-Rahu Mom also pushed some conventional boundaries (Rahu). Despite her adherence to a strict moral code of conduct (Shani-4) Mom's local theatre roles earned pleasant reviews in their small-town newspaper.


  • ruled by Mangala-12 ++ Budha-yuti-Mangala.
  • Busy Budha activates 6 + 9
  • Kuja activates 4 + 11

matrikaraka Chandra yuvati-pati = Mom identified with

  • her contractual relationships (7)
  • private prayer (12)
  • daily dialog (3)
  • illness-conflict (6)
  • doctrine (9)

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

Somana-yuti-Shani-nichha would suggest that mom demanded a respectable social status, based mainly in money (Bharani).

Mom has some wealthy, well-placed friends = 11th-from-Chandra = yogakaraka Kumbha-Zukra.

Somana-yuti-Rahu- would suggest that while she was enforcing the home rules Shani in Bhava-4 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-4

RWR's only sibling, elder brother Neil Reagan = represented by Ronald's Zukra-2-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 community = 11th-from-Chandra = Kumbha-Zukra.
  • Like RWR, elder brother Neil started a radio management career in the Midwest.
  • Neil then followed Ron to Southern California, where both men developed materially successful careers in radio + television.

Emotional need for social mobility + many useful partnerships

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-yuti-Rahu adds passionate opportunism to the emotional constitution.
  • Somana-opposite-Ketu indicates apathy toward the first lifepartnership.
  • Somana-opposite-Guru indicates numerous partnerships.
  • Fearful Shani regulates and represses emotional need, and enforces social conformity.
  • The result = complex and contradictory relationship behaviors.
  • Much depends on the current bhukti-pati.

Nichha-Shani often indicates an akashic history of blood feuds or ethno-racism.

  • RWR grew up in an Illinois era when Irish persons were denigrated by the previous wave of Scandi-German settlers as shiftless alcoholics, permanently consigned to the base of the pyramid, unable to better themselves due to low intelligence, domestic violence, and addiction

In this cultural milieu, a feeling [Chandra] of social inferiority (nichha-Shani) would have been sensed by both him and his mom. Nichha-Shani is exceptionally materialistic, generally framing life as a simple battle for money-and-power.

  • nishturabhashi yoga with nichha-Shani helps to explain RWR's expedient bonding Somana-yuti-Rahu with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era.

Craving Social Mobility + Politically Conservative + Patriotic

  • 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

  • Chandra-4 needs security in ethnic roots

  • 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 emotional opportunism (Rahu)

  • mixed with authoritarian rigidity [Shani]
  • ++ a conservative caretaker personality (Chandra-4) inclined toward continuity, fixed customs, and security from land ownership

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

Chandra-Meza marriages

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

  • yogakaraka Zukra-Kumbha-Shatataraka-2 = both unions advance matters of 5 and 10

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


  • alliance-1
  • bhava-10 public reputation, visibility, executive roles
  • Thula bargains, trades, agreements, deals, exchanges
  • contains Guru-yuti-Ketu suggesting a multiple-union pattern
  • Life-partner-1 = cinema star Jane Wyman

  • yuvati-pati Chandra occupies the respectable 10th-from-7, boosting reputation and social security

  • Chandra-yuti-Shani imposes an emotionally withholding, stressful drishti upon Thula

  • almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra

  • Wyman was a nationally-known dramatist and model. Her marriage to RWR (at the time a much lesser actor) served to promote his public recognition. Marriage-1 endured for seven years.

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-4 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • alliance-2
  • Urisha = finance, values, face, speech
  • 5 = politics, drama, children, fame
  • POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan

  • Marriage was long-lasting + committed but non-exclusive
  • vidya-sthana intakes no drishti
  • NDR functioned as a glamorous mistress of ceremonies.
  • The Reagans were known for their lavish entertainments supporting RWR's political career
  • NDR was in particular known for her showcase wardrobe of magnificent, expensive, designer party-wear

During the final POTUS-40 years , NDR worked assiduously to protect (Karkata) her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny

  • NDR's Chandra-Karkata matches RWR's bhava-7 ++ svamsha, indicating her essential support for his life and career
  • Wife-2 was addressed as Mommy.
  • The second marriage was perceived as emotionally close and the female partner served as parent-protector.

Significant Chandra emotional compatibility in union-2

  • RWR's public profile was competitive, masculine, vigorous (Kuja) generous, humanistic, and ideological, but also increasingly associated with Ketu's disorientation and disengagement in high office


As ruler of 11 yuti chatty Budha, Mangala intakes drishti from privilege-seeking Rahu-4, dynamic and friendly Mangala-Dhanuzya promotes economic systems.

  • RWR was famed for his (largely imaginary Kuja-12) all-American enrichment scheme called "Reaganomics"
  • Kuja vriddhi-pati = social networking, economic boosterism, sporting vitality

Mula Mangala-12 adds an element of ideologically driven, risk-tolerant apathy.

  • RWR's patrons aimed to dismantle (Ketu-ruled Mula) the USA social services agencies in order to reduce the tax burden on commercial business.
  • They succeeded, caring nothing (Ketu-Mula) about the catastrophic (Mula) effect on the fragile, easy-to-enslave, social-service-dependent underclass (Budha activates 6 Budha activates 6th-from-Chandra.)

Double rogesha

  • Budha activates Mithunaya-6
  • Budha activates 6th-from- Chandra-Meza
  • Budha occupies 6th navamsha
Although the policies that he promoted harmed many (Budha rogesha exploitation) RWR was never harmed due to Harsha Yoga

atmakaraka vargottamsha Budha-12 Communications

  • RWR's media-savvy style [Budha] = warm, alive, and pulsing with physical energy (Kuja).

  • RWR was witty, fun, and a master of the clever repartee [Budha].

Budha = karaka for administration, management, meetings

Rogesha Budha feels comfortable in disagreeable circumstances (6)

  • RWR handled lawsuits and employment conflicts as the Screen Actors' Guild president.
  • Rogesha Budha-12 feels natural in toxic, unbalanced environments, including mistreatment of disadvantaged groups, accusations, and crime

Kuja-yuti-Budha-12 occupies the inspirational, doctrinal, ideological, believing, theoretical 9th-from-Chandra

  • Preferring to believe that "Reaganomics" had theoretical validity (it did not) many were inspired to cut government spending on social welfare programs

Promoted by handlers as The Great Communicator

from Chandra-Meza activates 5 + 8

Brihaspati-10 casts benevolent drishti into 2 + 4 + 6

bhava-4 patriotism, defense, cultural roots = gets the full Guru-yuti-Ketu

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman's 300 Combinations text on Nishturabhashi Yoga

  • "If Jupiter aspects the Moon-Saturn conjunction, the yoga gets neutralized..."

Guru-yuti-Ketu rules

  • 3-management, administration, photography, presentations, cohort. messaging, communications, announcements.
  • 12-imagination, imagery, general impressions

Cheerful, non-committal Guru-Ketu pair attends meetings, does short-term travel, chats at dinner parties, and makes announcements.

In what would normally be preposterous timing,

  • RWR's political career starts during Guru-Ketu bhukti (1965)

Guru-10 career rules 3-Meena + 12-Dhanus

  • 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 (3) of the cinema actors' labor-union.

RWR 's political career did not evolve along a conventional pathway. (Ketu-10)

  • Before assuming elite governance roles, RWR had been a product rep and radio-television announcer .
  • Zukra-2 lovely voice, handsome face.

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

  • Instead, in 1966, the kingmakers put RWR's name on the state ballot. RWR had ZERO (Ketu) 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.
  • 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.

Warm handshake, general goodwill, pleasant smile, disengaged

  • Critics claimed that Governor RWR did not understand what was happening around him, and felt it unnecessary to discuss current topics in detail.
  • It was often insinuated that RWR possessed only a weak grasp (Ketu) of the legislative issues which defined California's political climate.
  • RWR smilingly parroted the ideological [Guru] views of his sponsors [Guru].
  • Meanwhile, much of the social service and education infrastructure of the nation was being dismantled (Ketu)

As POTUS-40, RWR maintained the same stance.

  • His personal diaries for those sixteen years of elite governance empowerment are filled with dribble such as "made a few telephone calls today".

Biographers (not hagiographers) mainly concur that RWR was not personally making conscious executive decisions.

  • However, decisions were being made indeed - by his handlers (3) and by invisible (12) top party-donors..

Famed for his hands-off management style (Ketu)

The requirement to simplify all matters demanding his attention into a single One-Page Memo, RWR's executive protocol consisted mainly of delegating to his top-level deputies. Yet Guru in bhava-10 allowed RWR to be seen as an elite decision-maker.

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 (Guru activates 12, image).

  • Being not over-burdened, RWR looked brightly cheerful and handsome in the execution of his natural professional duties (10) = media press-release photos and televised announcements (3).

Communications-focused, image-savvy, non-committal

Always available for a photo opportunity, offering a word of warm praise, or extending a firm handshake (3) RWR was known as non-confrontational (Ketu) and unlikely to contradict his handlers.

  • Respected and empowered by RWR's Guru-10, his executive staff were generally loyalists.
  • If told (3) by his handlers to hire or fire a worker, RWR reliably followed his managers' instructions.

RWR = Walk-in (Ketu)

From a psychic perspective, Reagan -- like Lincoln -- is considered to be a walk-in (Ketu). According to the story, the original incarnative personality is unhappy with the current life , 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 walk-in had a crucial task: to help collapse the USSR.

The transient agent occupied the body successfully and although always somewhat spacey, he completed the task. 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 (Ketu), the identity-less body vegetated in a prolonged state of deep dementia until the organ systems finally ceased functioning.

Guru in bhava-10 activates 12-internationalism + behind-the-scenes work

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

As the world teetered on the verge of WW-3, a powerful intervention was needed. A veteran, assertive, self-righteous senior politician would have failed to follow orders. But compliant, disengaged, and diplomatically inexperienced RWR was the perfect fit.

While others with more skill and focus were laboring behind the scenes to make it happen at the real-detail level, RWR's smiling, photogenic face (Zukra-2) announced the collapse of the Berlin Wall. 1989 marked the end of the Cold War and minimized the threat of the global annihilation.

Zukra-2 occupies the gainful, revenues-oriented 11th-from-Chandra

  • RWR formed fruitful friendships (11) with women [Zukra]. As the Screen Actors Guild president, RWR would have needed to treat women dramatists as equals.

Zukra social authority profile

  • Zukra-Kumbha-2 accepts incoming drishti of Guru-10, connoting ideological humanism and Tula-style traditional diplomacy.

Zukra karmesha makes decisions. Executive authority (10) was expressed primarily via financial agenda.

  • Zukra-2 understood politics (5) + governance (10) re: money, banking, asset containment, finance.

RWR experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas but rather by his ability to represent the established corporate-institutional order.


RWR was famously beholden to large corporate interests [Shani] during his entire career.

RWR was not an autocrat. RWR was a symbolic figure. RWR was well compensated for his dramatic portrayal of an authoritative leader. (Surya-1 intakes drishti from Shani).

Guru-yuti-Ketu occupies karmasthana. RWR was known as a Nice Guy [Guru] . His most lasting legacy is his long decline from Alzheimer's Disease (Ketu).

Ketu adds the absenteeism.

The deterioration of mental faculties began during the first term of office, and became pronounced during the second term. The prominent kendra of Karkata show the structural compensating support provided by his wife and protector, Nancy Davis Reagan.

Feminine Nativity

Anuradha * Maitra

BPL commentary

For Anuradha births of a feminine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Maitra, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instruction from the guardians of the civilizations of Gisgan-gusura. Their purpose is to impose safety in dangerous conditions via threat-containment and damage-control.

Hazard Regulation

Shani -ruled Maitra ladies benefit from the mutually supportive alliance between nakshatra-pati Shani and kalatra-karaka Zukra, and their energetic response to dangerous challenges is a gift from their Kuja lagnesha.

Anizham specialize in emergency repair of damaged relationships and arbitration of angry disputes. Aniruddha-born are known for safe handling of secret threats. This talent often places Anuradha women into high-stakes roles such as political or executive partner.

Professionally, Aniruddha women thrive where their ability to graciously impose lawful compliance in volatile circumstances is rewarded and respected. They often take elite positions in government regulatory agencies, in emergency medical professions, in law firms, and in the safety and insurance industries.

Themes of damage-control, risk mitigation, and orderly response to dangerous conditions may contextualize Anuradha's terrestrial experience.. Also applied to Chandra in Anuradha-Maitra

elite leadership roles,

Punarvasu-Surya-Mithunaya -8

  • 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 loves details

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 1 + 6 = original (bio) father-figure

  • NDR's bio-dad was a car salesman Surya-Mithunaya rules 3-sales.
  • NDR's parents were divorced soon after her birth. Bio-dad played no further conscious role in her life.


21 deg Surya (Puna) pitrikaraka activates 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 * comforted by maternal soothing * settled into tidal rhythms * needs to protect
  • Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya * soothed by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure * needs dignified orderly habits
  • Chandra in classroom-9 * comfortable with paradigms of belief * emotionally attuned to sacred doctrine * accustomed to priesthood * maternal piety * soothed by globalist perspective * feels the pulse of preaching * calmed by a broad worldview * acculturated to principled understanding * needs a familiar catechism * protective patrons * habitually seeks guidance * settled into philosophical roles * mother may hold cherished beliefs * undulating convictions


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

Chandra activates 9-ideology, father-figures, preaching

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-Tula 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

lagnesha co-ruler for Vrischika radical lagna

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

  • 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 activates

  • 1-personality appearance
  • 6-accusations, addictions, imbalance, search for remedies

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)

Harsha Yoga

  • 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-8 * narrative of hidden information * mysterious facts * unexpected eruptions of factual data * shocking revelation * writes about revolutionary cycles * speaks-and-sings about dynamic rebirth * detailed discoveries * describes transformative change * explains initiation * delivers instructions for new identity * hand-arm gestures signal healing renewal
  • 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


Busy Budha rules

  • 8 sudden identity changes, transformation, hidden power
  • 11-distribution networks, fundraising, participation, assemblies, gainful, large-systems

Budha Mahadasha * age 9.4 until age 26.4 * teenage years

After a long, lonely Shani Mahadasha, NDR's Budha-Budha svabhukti reunited NDR with her mother, Edie Luckette. NDR moved from her childhood home to her mom's new home in an exclusive Chicago suburb. (8, identity change)

With a new name and a new social status, teenage NDR became a socially connected (11) young debutant. After college, NDR attempted to launch a career as a Hollywood actress facilitated by her mom's Hollywood contacts (Budha activates Surya + Kuja + Budha).

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

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.

According to her daughter Patti's memoire, NDR self-medicated daily and extensively, with amphetamines to work and suppress appetite, followed by 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.

Shani in Bhava-10 = drishti into 12 + 4 + 7

NDR, a.k.a. Mommy, served as the power-behind-the-throne during the final decades of RWR's career. After his mental capacity dropped, but his political term of office was not yet finished, NDR (and not the designated Whitehouse staff) became the begrudgingly acknowledged primary gatekeeper to the president (10).

NDR carried on collecting the baubles and later sold them.

Parents like hubby = Guru-yuti-Shani--Simha in 2nd-from-Chandra-Karkata

NDR's mom's second husband (2nd-from-Chandra) was a political influencer.

NDR's parents liked NDR's husband personally, and they liked what RWR could do for the Republican Party.

  • NDR's parents were not scandalized by the 1950's gossip that he was a divorced Hollywood actor who endured a shotgun wedding to Nancy at the end of her first trimester.
  • Rather, NDR's actress mother + stepdad recognized RWR's potential as a political puppet.
  • Over the period 1952-1966 (14 years) NDR's parents invested substantial financial and social resources into NDR's husband's political career.

POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan suffered from Alzheimer's disease, which was detected in the earliest stages before a formal diagnosis, in the early 1980's.

  • As his brain disease progressed, RWR required constant care and delicate scheduling, which NDR exclusively provided.
  • Her compensating response to his increasing disability was to tightly control access to the presidential attention.

Whether his aides agreed or disagreed with her caretaking style, NDR did not care.

  • Many recognized a repeat POTUS pattern.
  • Recalling the 1920's strokes of POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson and the 1940's debility of POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt. In those crises, the wives Ellen Wilson and Eleanor Roosevelt, their assistants and aides, all collaborated to present a facade of normalcy to the public.

Unlike FDR and Wilson, RWR was in excellent physical health and in no danger of imminent flesh-death.

  • Yet RWR had lost so much memory that he had limited judgment
  • there was considerable support for the policy of maintaining the best possible facade of normalcy.

The current VPOTUS and soon-to-be- POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush was ready, willing and capable to lead

  • Yet, to be fully ready for a potential transition, Bush needed access to the president.
  • Access was often blocked by a an overly protective and micromanaging NDR.

Ketu in classroom-6 occupies 10th-from-Chandra-9

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

Apathy toward conflict and complaints.

NDR did as she wished.

NDR was chastised for keeping the expensive show-clothes that she was given by the fashion designers to showcase their garments, and keeping state gifts from foreign leaders.

  • NDR was not cowed by the complaints, and she kept the valuable fashions for later re-sale.

NDR famously consulted tropical astrologers following the assassination attempt upon RWR.

  • Although ridiculed by the press, NDR had no time for quibbles of public opinion.
  • Ketu signifies astrologers.
