Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities


Purnavasi * Vutvrta * Jamitra

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Brihaspati-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, 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.

Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.

High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Instructing, Explaining, Describing

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.

Karkata - Kadaga-pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.

Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing (due to Brihaspati rules 6).

Themes of restoration of lost knowledge, gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81

"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.

In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty."

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill maintained a legendary correspondence with his lifetime wife Clementine. She answered him faithfully with advice from sacred scripture and her own philosophical viewpoint, which was quite broad (9)

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill not only had a very long life despite danger at every turn; he also faced challenges of emergency and secrecy in both personal and professional life. His mother's lovers caused him endless stress, and his wife's family was a burden to him.

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill conducted many relationships both personal and professional within the military world, starting his career as a young military officer attracted to violent combat (and writing reports of it for profit). He matured into one of the triumvirate who led the Allies to a bitter and difficult victory in the carnage of World-War-2.

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill died aged 90 despite lifelong alcoholism, a grueling and relentless work schedule, and habitually courting danger via close personal involvement in several violent wars. Marriage difficulty undoubtedly arose, but with Shani-7 dig-bala dignity there is loyalty to the vow (if not the mate personally)."Keep calm and carry on" is the unchanging (Shani) order of the day.

  • UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill had a financially privileged, aristocratic father but from birth until his father died age 45 (Winston's age 19) young Winston rarely saw his father and felt a lasting resentment (Shani anti-flow) toward his progenitor.

  • However, bandesha-4 = Budha-5 = afflicted by both Ketu and by Budha's enemy Guru. Also Ketu and Guru = less than 1 degree separated. Churchill's parents carelessly abandoned (Ketu, carelessness) their very young son putting him in a boarding school where he took to drink (ruler-of-12 Zukra in 6). Visits home were not allowed as the parents were 'too busy'

SHANI MAHADASHA * The Structure of Duty

Churchill's Routine during the Last Decade of his life

quoted from

"Despite all this activity, Churchill's daily routine changed little during these years.

He awoke about 7:30 a.m. and remained in bed for a substantial breakfast and reading of mail and all the national newspapers. For the next couple of hours, still in bed, he worked, dictating to his secretaries.

At 11:00 a.m., he arose, bathed, and perhaps took a walk around the garden, and took a weak whisky and soda to his study.

At 1:00 p.m. he joined guests and family for a three-course lunch. Clementine drank claret, Winston champagne, preferably Pol Roger served at a specific temperature, port brandy and cigars. When lunch ended, about 3:30 p.m. he returned to his study to work, or supervised work on his estate, or played cards or backgammon with Clementine.

At 5:00 p.m., after another weak whisky and soda, he went to bed for an hour and a half. He said this siesta, a habit gained in Cuba, allowed him to work 1 1/2 days in every 24 hours. At 6:30 p.m. he awoke, bathed again, and dressed for dinner at 8:00 p.m.

Dinner was the focal-point and highlight of Churchill's day. Table talk, dominated by Churchill, was as important as the meal. Sometimes, depending on the company, drinks and cigars extended the event well past midnight.

The guests retired, Churchill returned to his study for another hour or so of work."

++ Mangala-Kanya directs the writing into topics of logistics, tactics, strategy, argumentation, battle plans, and most of all retrospective accurate but accusative criticism of mistakes

Karmesha-Mangala = career

Churchill became a war-related professional immediately after completing school when he joined the British military as a young officer.

He developed into a fervent (and popular) war journalist (Mangala-Kanya-3), sending detailed descriptions of British Army battles around the world to avid readers of English newspapers.

Mangala-Kanya ** mountains of factual detail - and careful analysis of it

after a somewhat frustrating career in war journalism Mangala-Kanya, and a very demanding era as Prime Minister, Churchill chose to write mainly about History and Government from an acerbically critical perspective Kanya.

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

Bantering Budha rules Punarvasu-Aditya radical lagna

  • Budha-Thula * articulation of contracts * equable discussions * balanced designs * commercial arrangements * explains procedure for fair agreements *  descriptive bargaining * skillful matching * accommodating conversations * messages about negotiation * programming for trade exchanges * manufactures harmonious patterns *  hands-arms-shoulders send equalizing gestures

Budha-yuti-Guru-yuti-Ketu writes voluminous correspondence, deliver reports, articulate announcements; radio, newspaper, short articles

Legendary, voluminous exchange of letters written from the battlefield to-and-from his wife Clementine;


Guru-yuti-Budha-yuti-Ketu-4 * Churchill was considered an rudely unpleasant man by many of his colleagues Yet, in a time of desperation, it was his unique voice which strengthened the citizens' faith in themselves and their destiny as a free people

Guru * dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)

  • Guru-Thula * many trades * variety of exchanges * optimistic negotiations * believes in justice * doctrine of contractual exchange * multiple alliances * permission to bargain * diversity of arrangements * equable guidance * widens the scope of balanced design
  • Guru in bhava-4 * many local roots * growth of homes * fertile gardens * many diploma-licenses * abundant owned property * many vehicles * multiple protective caretakers * multiple mother-figures * much shipping-transport * tolerance for parochial perspectives * numerous deeds of title * a patron of environmental stewardship * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be a grower-builder-schoolteacher-miner-shipper-landowner
  • Guru-yuti-Budha yukta-karaka * multiple sibling-teammate figures * permission to deliver information * abundant conversational messaging * believes in detailed communications * expansive dialog * many announcements * wide scope of evangelism * talks about philosophy * optimistic viewpoint in discussions
  • Guru-yuti-Ketu upeksha-karaka * multiple options for severance * broad permission to abandon unsustainable connections * diverse wanderings * many occasions of surrender * philosophy of impermanence * large-size vacuums * many holy pilgrimages

Guru-Thula many deals, matches, negotiation about the homeland-4 with scattering Ketu and with articulatory Budha. Often talking for the sake of talking and with few boundaries of politeness due to the boundariless Guru-yuti-Ketu and the diveersely chatty Guru-yuti-Budha .

Guru Mahadasha * age 55.9 until age 71.9 * 1930 until 1946 encompassing WW-2

1929-1939 = Churchill's so-called Wilderness Years of exclusion from political life = Guru-Guru svabhukti until Guru-Zukra bhukti. Jyotisha would reckon this bhukti as 1930-1938 = the first half of 16 years of Guru Mahadasha.

Guru rules 6-war, animosity, hostility, dissolution of trust, accusations, unfair conditions


Guru rules 9-guidance, wisdom, ideology, paradigm of belief, highest principles, global humanism

Optimistic and expansive Guru typically produces a double-edged sword effect for the Karkata nativity.

Bhava-6 Dhanuzya = Guru's mulatrikona which gives the priority effect (unless there are very strong graha in Meena, which this nativity does not show).

Churchill first experienced the effects of Brihaspati as rogesha, including an uncharacteristic extramarital affair with a London socialite 1933-1937 = Guru-Shani until Guru-Ketu (Lady Castlerosse, Ms. Delevingne) to express the contract-breaking capabilities of the rogesha even with his staunchly loyal Shan-Makara-7. Guru rules Meena = 8th-from Simha Chandra suggesting emotional secrecy. Zukra-yuti-Surya creates the pattern for two significant feminine peer-figures.

The second phase activates Bhava-9 Meena. Phase-2 originates with the released outdated relationships of Guru-Ketu. Phase-2 began to produce its expected effects in 1939, when Church returned to prominence, and the rest is history. UK-PM Finest Hour 1874-1965 Winston Churchill guided + inspired not only Britain but also the entire Allied team during World War-2

Zukra * svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wife)

  • Zukra-Vrizchika * appreciation of penetrating discovery * likes mysteries * attracted to danger * aesthetic of exploration * pleased by covert power * prefers a healing partner * undisclosed arrangements * phoenix aesthetic of rejuvenation * beautifying rebirth * negotiates pleasantly in threatening conditions * seeks equity during sudden upheavals * balanced approach to emergencies * enjoys hidden assets * conducts secret diplomacy
  • Zukra-5 * seeks pleasure via refined gaming * enjoys center-stage beauty * creative feminine-figures * pleasing children * talented students * delights in financial speculation * political grace * aesthetic designs to adorn the heart * graceful solar plexus * dramatic relationships * sweet celebrity romance * delights in fine arts * appreciation of entitlements
  • Zukra-yuti-Surya * balanced roles in drama * appreciation for political display * pleasantly charming * self-focused diplomacy * radiant bright beauty * self-reflexive bargaining * sweet entitlements * negotiating father-figure * self-directed arrangements * focus on trade exchange * solipsistic romance * idealistic contracts * enjoys the game of deal-making * prefers self-confident partners


Atmakaraka Zukra rules leadership 10th-from-Chandra

Zukra suffers no dagdha-dosha.

Atmakaraka Zukra enters Meena 9th navamsha, showing his remarkable artistic talent in fine-arts drawing and painting..

Zukra-5 politics = uttama- atmakaraka in navamsha-10, Churchill rose to Prime Minister on the strength of his political negotiating skills.

Britain desperately needed military alliances and Churchill was the man of this highly dangerous hour. He deployed that rare combination of elegant social finesse plus brutal awareness (Vrischika) of the very realistic prospect for annihilation of Britain by the superior firepower of Nazi Germany

His skills emerged via political channels at a time of terrible war conditions in Britain. His familiarity with war realities(Vrischika understands terror) put him in a superb position to perform a nearly impossible job = protecting an exhausted and vulnerable Britain from the aggressive and well-equipped German aggressor.

Bearer of Bad News yet Energizer of Reborn Power

Churchill's leadership triumph under extreme duress of a losing defense (Ketu-4) can be traced ultimately to the relationship between Kanya-Kuja-3 announcements ++ Zukra-Vrischika in 3rd-from-3rd energies of rebirth and transformation. This pair allowed him to deliver bad news (3 + 5) about the realities of the war.

He used radio and writing of newspaper articles, his reliable media-communications toolkit to deliver the terrifying news in a steady, upper-class voice Chandra in classroom-2 -Simha grants an entitled, charismatic speech sonority.

Sugar in the Scare

Churchill was able to add a spoonful of sugar (Zukra) to the otherwise poisonous (Vrischika) news of the war. He was able to keep alive an imaginative vision of future harmony (uttama-Zukra) even when the frightening reality of war was clearly announced by Mangala-Kanya * Mangala in bhava-3.

Extraordinary Vrischika Zukra-5 rules friendships-11 ++ homeland-4. Zukra controls Guru+ Budha + Ketu-4 suggesting an in-and-out career.

Emotionally, measured from the lagna of Chandra-Simha, Zukra rules 3-communications ++ 10-leadership.

Wife-figure * Ms. Clementine "Clemmie" Hozier

Zukra-Jyeztha-Antares suggests that Churchill's wife would be a an independent woman, prone to assert her own incontrovertible seniority. Clemmie inherited aristocratic privilege and a peerage. The couple were framed to the public as mutually and exclusively devoted, Yet, they spent very considerable lengths of time apart. True to Jyeztha Mrs. Clementine Churchill did what she wanted, when she wanted.

Sir Churchill's Surya-Anuradha and Zukra-Jyeztha are far enough apart that Zukra does not suffer moudhya-dosha. Budha ruler of Jyeztha Budha-yuti-Ketu while Kuja lord of Vrizchika occupies Kanya-3, a position of verbal criticism and complaint.

Sweets and Liquors * Zukra

Churchill's alcoholism was chronicled in the literature written by him and about him. Clemmie also drank spirits, and likely so did most people whose nation was being bombed into hell. Yet Churchill's addiction did not encumber or cripple his leadership performance, his magnificent writing Punarvasu-Aditya, or his fine arts painting. It does not therefore qualify as an addiction that harms one's life. It was simply his vigorously asserted entitlement (5) to a personal habit of taking sugary spirits throughout the day.

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

* Sasaya Yoga

  • Shani-Makara - Draco * heavy old institutions * obliged to conform to the time-clock * rigidly ranked hierarchies * strict regimes * pressure to complete socially required duties * structural compression upon knees-calves-skeleton * strictly imposed protocols * must normalize old rules * unyielding pressure of public judgment * class-conscious elders * punitive regulators * must endure proletarian manners * must continue to work * scarce building resources
  • Shani in Bhava-7 * digbala * (beneficial placement) * enduring partnerships * heavy vows * must balance-and-rebalance * cautiously conventional relationships. * tense bargaining * chronic marital responsibilities * compression of the visible genitalia * pressure against free bargaining * negotiation fatigue * unyielding alliances * slow-moving advisors * resists new arrangements * elders maintain old contractual obligations


Shani-Makara - Draco-7 owns and occupies 6th-from-Chandra

Sober, serious Shani drishti upon 9-father + 1-personality + 4-homeland = a tremendous work ethic, general grumpiness, reliability, brusque manner

Shani Mahadasha * age 71.9 until decease age 90 * stamina * enduring the German blitzkrieg

despite advanced age there remain heavy career responsibilities = Shani rules 10th-from-10th advising, contracts , negotiations, bargains, deals

stabilizing and protecting a weak and vulnerable Britain

7 = 4th-from-4th shell * shelter

Durokaraka Shani grants stodginess, stamina and endurance. During WorldWar-2, Shani randhresha-8 gave to Churchill the stamina to endure (Shani) the multi-year emergency (8) conditions caused by German blitzkrieg bombing attacks (8) on Britain.

Shani provided many karmic partners. Most of the alliances were effortful (Shani). Allies not only in the home government where Churchill's primary work was crafting of agreements. But also in the international war environment, the key players were each intractable and strictly demanding.

Shani-7 drishti 9=-father, 1-personality, 4-foundational culture, schooling = puts a karmic slow-freeze on his own personal faith. Yet, he was able to inspire others in his own grumpy inimitable way = Shani drishti into the Budha-yuti-Ketu communicator pair in homeland-4.

The agreements would be accomplished then either resisted by the electorate via Shani or blown away in the winds of uncertainty of the collaborators via Ketu.

The British citizenry (4) were still exhausted from the recent carnage of WorldWar-1, and mustering another defense (4) with a decimated military was not easy. In fact, the Nazi attackers were expecting that their invasion would be trivially easy due to the exhausted state of the defense.

Shani blocked the consciousness that would have facilitated a quicker British uptake of military innovations and blocked the fundamental changes in the rigid class system that were essential to distribute leadership according to intelligence -- not rank at birth. Churchill was himself of the rank-at-birth mentality Therefore, he could be said to have been an agent of resistance to change, and in fact was leery of North American involvement initially since the Yanks et al had so little respect for tradition.

Yet with the erratically arriving defenses (Ketu) just-barely-enough help from the USA and Canada (Guru-4 multiple defenses) plus other reluctant to engage (Ketu) and piecemeal supporters, the onslaught was rather miraculously overcome (Guru). Some historians consider Churchill to have been the savior of the free world, but other commentators emphasize his classist, obstreperous, hidebound privilege-seeking viewpoint as a considerable obstacle to success.

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

  • Rahu-Meza-Arya * shimmering illusion of championship * craving for superiority * exotic use of dominating force * mask of competitive action * mirage of first-arrival pioneer * over-reaching urgency * extraordinary birth * extravagant muscularity * mesmerizing forward movement * unusual athleticism * fascinating conquests * marvelous warriorship * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of heroic action * seeks privilege via innovator-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * in svabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous executive decisions * thrilled by iconic status * craves symbolic importance * hungers for regulatory authority * outsider who cleverly insinuates into lawful governance * cleverly challenges official rules * mesmerizing ascent to high social status * may pose as a boss * shimmering smoky illusion of legitimate power * trespasses cultural limits of old hierarchies * boundary-breeching hunger for commanding roles * ambition for elite rank * desires to hold a respected position * opportunistic climb to top of the corporate pyramid * culturally-mixed reputation * ambition of the father's family


His most visible career Rahu-10 during times of war and the salient expression of career was writing of reports, speeches, histories Mangala-3 rules 10

Rahu is super-powered for matters of ideological preaching, inspirational guidance, and patriarchal wisdom in 9th-from-Chandra

Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Thula * justly dissociates from negotiation * wanders away from compromise * eccentric alliances * abandons agreements * apathetic trades * surrenders trust * ignores restriction on match-making * releases a pale pastel cloud of fair deals into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the cultural foundations * absentee mother-figure * disregards local customs * dissolved property boundaries * wanders from the ancestral home * often away * ignores conventional schooling * irrelevance of habitual folkways * surrenders nationality * dismisses the parents * abandons the established routines * may prefer to live free from fixed roots
  • Ketu-yuti-Budha * miscalculations * incoherent references * empty talk * unsustainable explanations * irrational statements * chats about non-existent events * spacey sibling-cohort * apathetic evangelism * incomplete details * witty misnomers * vacuous plans * unfulfilled deliveries * illogical messaging * liberation via mental surrender * for commercial nativities, may dissolve the cooperative team
  • Ketu-yuti-Guru * misunderstandings * unsustainable convictions * abandons empty theories * believes in non-existence * vacuous catechism * wandering teachers * apostasy * wisdom of surrender * incomplete comprehension * doctrines of impermanence * Other-Worldly viewpoint * walks away in disbelief * liberating philosophy * for wifely nativities, Ketu may release the dhavakaraka husband-figure. .


WC rarely saw either of his parents Ketu in classroom-4

Nevertheless, he had a great deal of information about them (Budha + Guru, much information) since they were socially prominent personalities
