BPL commentary

For Pushyami births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.

Laws and Customs

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as transportation, farming and fishing, home-building and real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles (Shani) that provide an orderly process (Shani) for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya-Sidhya.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"An earnest, thoughtful character,

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

  • and a supporter of church and religious activities.

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."

Dad = a leading economic figure who operated and invested in numerous companies, served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (Kumbha) and was posted as US Ambassador to UK.

  • Surya in bhava-8 indicates a father engaged in secret relationships, controlling secret assets, and affiliated with hidden information
  • Surya-yuti-Kuja raises the entitlement (Surya) ++ the political power (yogakaraka Mangala rules 5 + 10)
  • Surya-yuti-Budha raises the entitlement (Surya) ++ engagement with foreign lands (Budha rules-12) ++ commercial interests (Budha rules 3-commerce)

uttama Zukra-yuti-Rahu in 2nd-from-Surya (father's assets) indicates the father's luxury-seeking financial passions. Not all of the financial opportunities were legal, as would be expected with Rahu.

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

  • Chandra-Simha * comforted by creative display * settled into dramatic rhythms * needs attention

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy

  • US Attorney-general Bobby Kennedy (assassinated)

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy (assassinated)


  • 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-11 social progressive networking, economics, community
  • The public perceived TK as a symbol of economic connectivity (11) and increased social participation (11) for the masses and the classes (11, large groups). 11 = Vrishabha - Urisha collections, hoards, banking in context of social participation, linkage, wealth-distribution networks.
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu ruling 10th-from-Chandra suggests a remarkable career in matters of bhava-11 = community linkage, social participation projects, economic justice, arts and music, but also excessive (Rahu) ambition regarding women, beauty, and liquors

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership


  • bhava-8 non-disclosure, crisis
  • First marriage is complex . Randhrasthana contains Surya + asta-Kuja + Budha, while randhresha Shani-7 seeks to maintain orthodoxy and conventional expectations.
  • Shani-7 is randhresha ruling the secretive Kumbha-8 = generally a disability in matters of transparency and trust
  • First union endured legally for more than 20 years. However, behind the camouflage of bhava-8, the couple had separated much earlier.
  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy met his first wife Joan Bennet at an honoring ceremony at Manhattanville College, when Ted's family was recognized for their financial (Zukra) contributions to the college (0).

  • With bandesha-Vriddhi-pati Zukra-yuti-Rahu-9, TK was economically identified with the distinctive appearance and over-reaching empowerment (Rahu) of his clan. Zukra is uncomfortable in Meena due to ruling 3-8 from Meena lagna and Zukra amplified by Rahu, suggesting that the wife although a beautiful fashion model (uttama-Zukra) would also suffer from mental churning (3) and self-destructive (8) behaviors.

randhresha-8 = Shani in bhava-7 * dig-bala

  • Although Shani in Bhava-7 grants socially approved contract behavior that is lawful and stable, personally the tasks of marriage equity and fair deals is emotionally aggrieved because Shani-7 occupies the disagreeable 6th-from-Chandra.. Shani is also randhresha, which introduces elements of chronic non-disclosure into the union.

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

  • bhava-3 Kanya,
  • contains Ketu-Kanya
  • Disconnected due to age (partner-2 = 22 years younger than native) ++ assisted by helpful Budha rules 3.
  • The Budha-ruled second union was reckoned to have restored his long-faltering public reputation, and returned his governance productivity following decades of distraction.
  • Social opinion regarding the second marriage is mainly apprehended via bhava-2 = containing the popular family element Chandra in Purvaphalguni

Kuja * bhratru-karaka (brother) * virya-karaka (virile)

  • Mangala-Kumbha * vigorous community activism * warrior for economic progress * proactive linking * push toward regulated systems * pursues profitable roles * spearhead of mass interconnectivity * futuristic thrust * dominating energy in social networking * conquest of marketplace interactions * champion of distributed associations

Yogakaraka Mangala rules

  • 5-intelligence, creativity, celebrity
  • 10 social visibility, respect, reputation, leadership

Yogakaraka Mangala = Ashtangata harana = burned due to being within 4 degree of Surya-Kumbha

TK's lifelong political career was weakened by Ashta Mangala but strengthened by the incoming graha drishti of political Chandra-Simha.

Without the intensely politicizing Chandra-Simha drishti from his mother, TK likely would have excelled in executive, regulatory roles within economic or scientific environments. However, Chandra injects a ray of foundational political feeling from his mom.

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

* Vimala Yoga

  • Budha-Kumbha * connecting communications * systematic pronouncements * articulation of social-scientific networks * descriptive inter-webbed definitions * diagrams the marketplace linkages *futuristic conversations * messages about communities * discusses economic transactions * explains social participation linkage * large-scale logic * skilled weaving * deft knitting * hands-arms-shoulders make connective gestures

Second marriage to one younger


Budha documentation, reports, written legislation, committee-work rules the 10th navamsha = commerce, communications, media-messaging, meetings and memoranda, +++ the sibling-cousin cohort.

Budha rules the sibling-cohort arudha lagna * contains disoriented Ketu

Budha-Kumbha * protective Vimala Yoga * Budha-8 rules 12

TK was famously accused but not convicted in the automobile crash and drowning death of his campaign staff worker in the Chappaquiddick scandal.

Kennedy was driving a car with a young woman staff-member passenger. Coming home after a party, the car plunged off a bridge, into a dark river. The woman drowned. TK swam to safety. Despite the fact that TK did not notify the police until ten hours after the fatal accident, he escaped all criminal consequences.

Despite being the driver of the car, and not having attempted whatsoever to rescue her, TK claimed to be fully innocent in his actions. There were no findings in the investigation, and although the case went to trial, the jury was presented with no evidence.

TK seemed (to the public) permanently unconcerned with impact of this violent event upon the woman and her family. No criminal conviction. No jail or prison.

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

* Hamsha Yoga

  • Guru-Karkata * uttama * big shelters * various caretakers * many provisions * benevolent routines * believes in defense * permission to protect * expansive patriotism * broad understanding of local cultures * develops gardens * prosperous settlements * multiple dwellings * many patronizing parent-figures

Atmakaraka generosity, charity, expansion, permission ** but nichha-Guru in navamsha-5 shows overconfidence in politics, games, celebrity

Guru-Karkata * uttama rules

6- victim narrative, poverty, crimes, accusations, inequity. * assassinations, fatal and near-fatal accidents, surgeries

  • Kennedy was perceived as sensitive to the plight of impoverished, marginalized groups, the poor, the sick, handicapped, and victims of prejudice and stigma. His voting record over the period of 47 years confirms it.
  • 18-Jul-1969 (TK age 37) Chappaquiddick scandal * Rahu-Guru bhukti

9-celebrity politics, global humanism, doctrine.

  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu is so flashy that this yoga overemphasizes doctrine and drains the reputation.

Guru in bhava-1 grants a blessing of large size, along with collegiality and benevolence * Champion of social participation in economic systems, access to healthcare and education, integration of marginalized populations

Dharmesha Guru-Karkata * uttama = highly empowered + drishti into vidyasthana-5

Political Elections 5

With no previous experience, young TK was told by his father to run for the Senate seat that had been held by his elder brother POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy. TK would hold this Senate seat for 47 years.

Despite TK's absolute lack of experience, the election win was easily accomplished, in part due to

Hailing from an elite political family, TK won the first election handily, with little campaign effort. The decades rolled onward and TK's personal behavior caused considerable negative publicity. Yet, TK said that he did not care about politics, and would only stay as long as the electorate wanted him to serve. TK was re-elected to his seat in the USA Senate every six years until his decease age 77, totaling 47 years of uninterrupted, high-potency elite political career.

Yet rogesha in lagna has some less savory outcomes too. Senator Kennedy was also disgraced via public alcoholism and sexual promiscuity (also his Zukra-yuti-Rahu)

Rogesha Guru-Karkata * uttama = highly empowered + drishti into putrasthana-5

  • All of TK's three children suffered from the disease of cancer.
  • His eldest child Kara (1960-2011) developed terminal lung cancer. In early childhood, Edward Kennedy Jr. (b. 1961) had his leg amputated (Ketu) due to bone cancer. In 1988, Patrick Kennedy (b. 1967) had a tumor removed near his spine.

uttama Guru in bhava-1 casts Parashari drishti into

Imaginative, sweets-seeking, ambitious, volatile and passionate uttama- Zukra-yuti-Rahu occupies the constantly-transforming 8th-from-Chandra =

Treasury Zukra

  • uttama Zukra-yuti-Rahu rules 11-earnings, marketplace gains. At the time of 2009 decease, TK's was an HNWI with net worth estimated at more than $150million_USD.

Kakatra-karaka Zukra - wife figures

uttama Zukra-yuti-Rahu = wife-1 = a beautiful, fertile fashion model with doctrinal alignment (Roman-rite Catholic)

  • Yet, the union was riddled by alcoholism (Zukra) and infidelity (Rahu). Discipline enhanced by drishti from Makara-Shani-3 into Zukra-9. Fertility enhanced by incoming drishti from ruler uttama-Guru-1.
  • For estimating impact upon the wife-figure, it can be said that Zukra is uncomfortable in Meena due to ruling 3-8 from Meena lagna and Zukra amplified by Rahu, suggesting that the wife although a beautiful fashion model (uttama-Zukra) would also suffer from mental churning (3) and self-destructive (8) behaviors.

8th-from-Zukra = offers an additional perspective regarding the second wife-figure.

  • Thula-4 = stable. 4 is also ruled by uttama-Zukra-yuti-Rahu and also absorbing regulatory drishti from Shani-7.
  • Yet, Thula=4 is free from the over-expansive, rogesha drishti of uttama-Guru.
  • TK second marriage-partner was reckoned to be re-orienting, stabilizing, and allowed him to finally mature. despite the ongoing volatility of his life reality.

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

Shani-Makara-Draco rules lawful, orderly, customary Pushya lagna

Shani's position makes Marriage emotionally uncomfortable

Although Shani in Bhava-7 grants socially approved contract behavior that is lawful and stable, personally the tasks of marriage equity and fair deals is emotionally aggrieved because Shani-7 occupies the disagreeable 6th-from-Chandra.

sober and lawful, the governing, orderly, Shani in Bhava-7 creates regulatory patterns throughout the nativity: 47 years in USA Congress; never lost an election

  • drishti into 9 + 1 + 4
  • structuring, swa-kshetra Shani rules karakamsha bhava-7 attorney, legislator, bargainer
  • Shani-Makara in 7 tends to stabilize career by promoting a Shani-controlled presentation of conventionalism and orthodoxy.

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

  • uttarabhadrapada old order of subterranean wisdom * Rahu-Meena * shimmering illusion of immersion * craving for symbolic guidance * extravagant imagination * mirage of dreamlike wisdom * mesmerizing aura of concealing fog * mask of Other-Worldly wisdom * fascinating prayers * extraordinary ancestor guides * fabulous clairsentience * intriguing sleep-states * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of deep trance * exceptional private intuition * unorthodox interior guidance * seeks privilege via contemplative-roles

  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * amplified attractions * magnified beauty * exotic taste * tricky partners * opportunistic feminine-figures * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of luxurious pleasure * strange-and-wonderful designs * thrilling relationships * barrier-bending brokerage * unusual contracts * hypnotic arrangements * gracious balance of cross-cultural mixing * entrancing music

Rahu in bhava-9 indicates the appearance = public perception that TK was a patriarchal figure, working from humanistic philosophical principles; whatever his personal failings, the social guidance and advocacy provided by Kennedy was valued highly in his society.

Rahu in bhava-9 doctrine, philosophical principles amplifies bandesha uttama Zukra = political ideal of basic (4) food, clothing, shelter, education, and security for the foundational population

the exceptionally powerful uttama-Zukra-yuti-RahuMeena occupies 8th-from-Chandra Simha

  • secrecy, sudden unexpected changes, transformation of identity, hidden truths * the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra = catastrophic experiences (8)

  • Ketu-Kanya * humbly dissociates from accusatory complaints * incomplete service * empty disagreements * odd arguments * not limited by stigmatized conditions * ignores restriction on helpfulness * eccentric service to the disadvantaged * releases a living green cloud of servitude into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-3 * eccentric communications * disinterested in daily chat * writes on foggy abstract topics * dissolves messaging boundaries * implausible prophecy * wandering discussions * can handle esoteric information * irrelevance of normal mental narrative * abandons management tasks * dismisses the standard explanations * disregards conventional discourse * unless other graha in 3, may prefer to live free from younger siblings

Ketu's ruler Budha-Kumbha-8 occupies 6th-from-Ketu

mental health

KETU resides in 2nd-from-Chandra

suggesting that TK was ambivalent about the value of his family legacy. Even while TK's family was surging with glamorous celebrity (TK Chandra-Simha-2), Ketu points to apathy and disregard for the importance of the lineage. He would have preferred to emphasize his own record.
