Agneya * Riksya * Karthika * Alcyone
For Krittika 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 splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.
Agneya-born gentlemen are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Natural dramatists, Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and self-directed seekers of attention.
Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of Champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius. Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures.
Vrishabha-Urisha-pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Shukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatra-pati Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of banking and finance, natural resource conservation, music, wines and perfumes, arts, and beauty. Depending on [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward government positions.
Themes of self-importance, individual entitlement, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Krittika-Pleyades

Jerry Brown in 2010
A highly private person holding highly public roles
Bhava-12 contains the rulers of 1 + 2 + 5 + 7 + 8 + 12,
These six bhava-pati occupy the awkward and disagreeable 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu AND Rahu occupies the 6th-from-Chandra.Why no national wins?
JB's track record shows a highly capable leader , and one widely recognized after decades of holding high-visibility  government  positions.
JB's dad, Pat Brown, held the California governorship before young Jerry started doing the job, and the father's respectability Surya-yuti-Shani contributed a great deal to the son's reputation in the world of law and policy * yogakaraka Shani activates 10 + 11
Known as a budget-minder and a legal expert, JB won elections to various important civic offices in California -- whose population is greater than the nation of Canada. JB has won the Governorship multiple times, been voted State's Attorney-General, was a two-term Mayor of the populous city of Oakland.
Multiple failed bids for national elected office.
Unlike many USA politicians who used their recognition from California politics as a launching pad to project themselves into elite roles in Washington D.C., JB never won a national level election. His candidacy failed in US Senate bids. Several bids failed to win the Democratic nomination for POTUS. This despite JB's name and image being well recognized across many sections of the USA voter demographic.
Brown never encountered serious animosity or disagreement at the state level. But problems arose at the national-level. The support that he needed both financially and from the essential base of volunteer campaigners did not adequately materialize. He disagreed with his advisors [Mangala-12 rules 7] .
Moonbeam * too liberal, too visionary, too generous, too academic [Guru-10]
As part of the polarized young-innovators-against-old-bigots cultural debates of the later decades of the 20th century, JB's campaign rhetoric [Budha] evoked a cultural-war polarity of old-industrialist vs. new technology-economists Budha-yuti-Mangala.
JB = a man far ahead of his time, who could be recognized and rewarded for his leadership abilities in a progressive electorate like California. Yet, sadly, the broader USA was not ready for JB.

known as Governor Moonbeam throughout his first two governorship terms, JB's personal history as a former monastic novice priest and his proclivity for spiritual retreat, along with a general vocabulary [Budha] of compassion tended to erode  his capacity for tough leadership. Yet, in the second phase [his third and fourth governor terms] Budha + Mangala had fully matured, allowing the more pragmatic internationalism of bhava-12 to improve his effectiveness.
