Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

Bhaga - Falgun - Utthram

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine 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 Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, 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.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed. [Can be counterbalanced by a cool moon.]

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha - Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatra-pati Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romantic idealism, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician of international ability, according to the strengths of nakshatra-pati Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

" A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride ,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

" Mars placed in friendly sign will make one protect the wealth of friends."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


pitri-karaka [father] jyoti-karaka [light]

[energizing-identifying lagnesha for Simha indriya-lagna]

[bright focus of hierarchical ministry]

[confidently displays conventional assistance]

[center-stage roles in government service]

[class-conscious exploitive-ailing-aiding father]


[dramatizing-showy Dhaniṣṭha-1] [navamsha Surya-Simha] intuitively confident political-dramatic

  • [Surya-Makara-Draco] Savitra * the stimulator * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the hierarchical structuring rashi of Shani
  • [Surya in bhava-6] center of sparkling service * brightly conflicted * focus on imbalance * eye on exploitation * charming social worker * poverty entitlements * shines light into broken promises * confident litigation * self-righteous accusations * politics of pollution * intelligence for medicine * smart crimes * dramatizes suffering * gambles with addictions * central roles in conflict zones * bright center of war * father may serve in medicine-military-ministry * or father may be sick-addicted-abusive-poor


[Surya in bhava-6] lagnesha +++ [Rahu-yuti-Shani-nīcha]

Dad = Irish-American travelling shoe salesman. RWR was said to have resembled his Dad [lagnesha]

Weakened Surya-Makara intakes a fierce 10th drishti from Shani, oppressive via class-ranking

[nīcha] Shani often indicates an akashic history of blood feuds or ethno-racism.

[nīcha] Shani is exceptionally materialistic, generally framing life as a simple battle for money-and-power

  • 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
  • Dad notably suffered from alcoholism.
  • Observers noticed paternal occasions of domestic violence, irregular employment'[6] 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.

Power-Mom - Subordinate Dad

RWR's Mom hailed from English-Scottish roots, and thus she avoided the bigotry that beset RWR's dad. Chandra in classroom-10 was a well-known figure in the Illinois towns where the family lived, due mainly to her churchwork. Mom's reputation included a sought-after power of healing prayer = [uchcha] Chandra rules 12.

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

  • Surya-Savitra intakes a punitive drishti from Ravi's ruler = Shani-Mesha [nīcha]
  • Shani drishti upon His tenant Surya in bhava-6 confers social responsibility, despite some resistance of Surya toward intimidating [nicha] Shani
  • In a small town, Dad would have been constrained by the behavioral requirements of mom's congregation [9] .

Surya occupies the inspirational, doctrinal, ideological, believing, theoretical 9th-from-Chandra

  • Despite the father's financial insufficiency and addiction, mom and dad are well aligned = Surya 5/9 from Chandra
  • Although he did not attend mom's church, dad would have benefited from her guidance
  • RWR learned to navigate a household with multiple doctrinal viewpoints

As a political candidate, RWR was marketed [3] to evangelical Christians as a born-again, to moderate Christians as a conventional Presbyterian, and to everyone else as a tolerant moderate

  • Raised by a Roman-Rite Catholic father and a Disciples-of-Christ Pentecostal mother, RWR was able to move blithely from one paradigm to the next, depending on the audience.
  • [Guru-yuti-Ketu] -3 disregards fixed boundaries in the Message

QUOTATION Das WRT Surya-Makara intakes drishti of Shani

  • " 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."


RWR left a complex legacy.

Dhaniṣṭha Surya lagnesha is itself weak, but dharmesha Mangala-Mūla-5 ruler of Dhaniṣṭha is very strong for drama and politics.

incoming drishti from Shani-Mesha-9

  • adds support conservative-reactionary religious demographic [90
  • dulls the intelligence

Initiator of the post-Soviet world

  • On the one hand, RWR is considered to be significantly responsible, at least as a figurehead, for the financial collapse of the USSR provoked by Soviet weapons overspending.
  • RWR contributed, directly and indirectly, to the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the end of the Cold War.

Puppet of corporate-greed hierarchies and the glitterati

  • On the other hand, RWR is also remembered for his unfettered military spending which left behind a massive debt crisis for the USA govt
  • RWR's free mixing of entertainment business with national politics and obvious catering to the HNWI class seemed indolent and self-serving to many citizens
  • Perhaps most egregiously, RWR spearheaded the destruction of most of the social safety net - built in the 1930's until the 1960's -that once protected the working classes from severe poverty.

Lagnesha occupies 6 = physical health issues

[nicha] Shani = brain function

RWR was a natural public figure, famous for being himself, apparently never worried, always smiling and making jokes. Observers commented that RWR enjoyed being on camera, he loved a warm handshake, and was a natural fundraiser [Budha-5 rules 11].

  • RWR handled lawsuits and employment conflicts as the Screen Actors' Guild president.

However, RWR showed memory loss issues as early as 1966 [first term as Calif gov]

  • He increasingly required short conversations and single-page memoranda

He attended few long meetings - nearly always sending top aides instead

  • As the years passed, RWR's executive diaries became filled with happy non-sequiturs and insubstantial comments such as " Great lunch. Nice day"
  • His college football concussions and several accidents on set while acting [including major hearing loss from a 1939 gunshot explosion] may have contributed to the ongoing brain condition

RWR = weak executive but a Nice Guy

Both as Governor of California and as POTUS-40, the hallmark of RWR's executive style was minimal engagement with decision-making [weak Surya] along with personal outreach to employees and staff [Surya lagnesha in 6, employees]

  • 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.

  • Most chief executives would have allocated their time to critical meetings with advisors. Reagan preferred to phone people that he didn't know, who were not involved in top governance, in order to sustain his reputation for likeability.
  • RWR generally prioritized communications media effect, especially likeability, considerably more than professional competence or material results.

  • RWR is also honored as a key figure in the international effort to end the Cold War

  • Initiated into her Disciples of Christ catechesis in 1910, the year before RWR was born,
  • Mom was dedicated to the church.
  • Her prominence helped RWR and his brother to obtain BA's at the church-sponsored Eureka College [Chandra foundational education].

Elder BROTHER * Neil Reagan = 11th-from-Chandra-10

RWR's only sibling, elder brother Neil Reagan = represented by RWR Meena-8 11th-from-Chandra.

  • Like RWR, elder brother Neil started a radio management career in the Midwest.
  • Neil then followed Ron to Southern California, where both men developed careers in radio + television.

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.

RWR hated Communism. [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Rahu

Surprising to many due to his jovial, nice-guy demeanor, RWR became an effective agent in the international 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 - but not a powerful ego.

  • whereas a veteran, assertive, self-righteous senior politician would have failed to follow orders.
  • a compliant, non-confrontational, disengaged, and diplomatically inexperienced agent like 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 [Budha-5] announced the break-down of the Berlin Wall.

  • 1989 marked the end of the Cold War and minimized the threat of the global annihilation.

Until the Shani Mahadasha, RWR had been a product rep and radio-television announcer .

  • RWR 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 smiling, optimistic, cheerful 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.

BPL commentary

For Aśvini births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing intuitively.

Innovating Observer

Akaza-ruled Aśvini ladies are independent minded. Nasatya-born ladies are often athletic. They may practice various methods for maintaining an exceptionally slender physique. Psychologically competitive, feminine Ashvayujau often appear nonchalant while quietly marshalling their militant forces.

Azvakini tend to marry fascinating Rahu-influenced partners, if they marry at all.

Aśvini tends to express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the witnessing, detached behaviors of Ketu. All pada can be interested in medicine, but the 4th pada are nearly always midwives, nurses, physicians, dentists, or other recognized healing roles. Aśvini damsels are often found in medical environments such as pharmacies, hospitals, surgeries, clinics, and birth centers.

Akasha-born are blessed with a psychic [Ketu] agility to enter and exit the fleshbody. This skill brings them into roles such as medical intuitive and spiritual healer. Their meditative and clairsentient skills may be advanced. Yet, asva is typically modest regarding their healing powers, which they tend to attribute to Others such as deities, medical science, nature, or their partner.

Themes of personal freedom , unrestricted movement, and intuitive awareness may contextualize Aśvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśvini - Dasra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

" ... she will possess a modest, clean, wholesome, and admirable character.

She will have an inherent respect and admiration for older people,

  • particularly her parents

but she will be independent of them

  • because of her ability to earn her own living and to make her own career .

She will have a very good figure

  • and even, white teeth.

A capable and self-sufficient person."

Drugs - Self Medication [6]

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 scheduled in order to avoid an addiction crisis.


NDR was accused of official impropriety [6] because she accepted millions of dollars worth of untaxed designer clothing + jewels into her personal wardrobe inventory .

  • Although the garments and baubles were intended as loans, granted in order to showcase the designer's talents at prestige Whitehouse entertainments, NDR kept many of the extravagant items and later re-sold them.


NDR was said to have 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.

Budha rogesha - dissolution of advisors, consultants

It was reported that NDR did not ask for help and she did not accept advice.

  • 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.

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.


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.

  • 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 crisis-management style, NDR responded to her husband's disability by quietly assuming his governance durites [10]

  • Many recognized a repeat POTUS pattern.

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.
