BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Zukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani-Yamya, Purvaphalguni-Yoni, or Purva-azadhamay find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

USA_JFKJr_photo.jpgQUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"a physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

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

Mom = POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jackie Kennedy

Somana-yuti-Ketu Generally, indicates that the mother is emotionally disengaged. Such a mother-figure may fulfill all public expectations and duties, but is nevertheless ambivalent toward matters of protection and nurturing. Chandra's ruler is Shani-5 ++ Shani casts a strictly responsible and structuring drishti upon Chandra.

The Shani-ruled mother is reliable and organized, focused on her contractual relationships Chandra-7. She is effervescent and prone to disappear, but nevertheless Somana-yuti-Ketu is present as a pillar of the childhood.

The 4-10 angle between Surya and Chandra indicates that the parents treat each other with dignity and respect. As a partnership, the parents would prefer a traditional division of labor.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-7 = bhava-1 self-identity, physical appearance, unique personality

From the child's perspective, Mom is the primary life-partner. Chandra-7 = husband-figure = seeking a caretaker to replace a missing mother. The primary relationship is with the mother. Young JFK married on 21-Sep-1996 in his 36th year. He waited until after the death of his caretaker-figures, the influential paternal grandmother (1995) and his doting but publicity-sensitive mother (1994) to make his own choice of a life-partner.

His mother (Chandra) and paternal grandmother (4th-from-Surya = Chandra-7) are both represented in his 7th bhava of advisers. They would have likely encouraged him to make a reputable choice of life-partner.

Quotations from BPHS Ch. 1-12; 1-17; 1-19

  • "Chandra is capable of causing an early end, if He is with a malefic in Yuvati, Randhra, or Tanu bhava, and unrelated to a benefic."~~ 1-12
  • "Malefics occupying Tanu and Yuvati Bhava while Chandra is with a malefic, with no relief from a benefic will also cause premature death." ~~ 1-17
  • "Chandra in Tanu, Randhra, Vyaya or Yuvati bhava and hemmed in between malefics will confer premature death." ~~ 1-19

According to Sri Sarajit Poddar," The Moon in Saturnine signs in betwixt malefics " signifies dematerialization via "Hanging, Fire or fall."

Kumbha-Chandra-7 hemmed in between Ketu (above) and Shani (below).

Cause of dematerialization may be considered a fall, since his airplane plunged into the sea, and presumed cause of death was not drowning but rather the blunt-force trauma of the crash.

Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra as well as Rahu's ruler Surya in Svamsha with the nichha-Zukra suggests death through the agency of the wife or in company with women.

Guru vidya-pati-5 + randhresha-8

Guru-5 drama rules 8-conditions of dematerialization

Only a few months before his 39th birthday, JFK-Jr 's tragic ocean drowning on 16-Jul-1999 drew the attention of the television-viewing world. In an unprecedented and dramatic use of government resources to aid the celebrity-political Kennedy family, US-Navy search-and-rescue teams were deployed to search for the sunken plane and its deceased passengers: JFK-Jr, his young wife Carolyn Bessette, and his sister-in-law Lauren Bessette.

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

  • Zukra-Dhanuzya * appreciation of humanistic belief * advocates for theory * attracted to teachers * agrees with priests * pleased by broad perspective * prefers inspiring partners * dogmatic arrangements * enjoys indoctrination * delighted by philosophy * aesthetic of shared worldview
  • 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 karma pathi = public life

ALSO Zukra = yogakaraka vidya-pati-5 + karmesha-10 from Kumbha-Chandra

bhratru-pati-3 + karmesha-10in a husbandly nativity, kalatrakaraka Zukra signifies the being who assumes the role of the wife-figure.

The daityaguru as bhratru-pati-3 + karmesha-10 is a capable public agent (10) and commercial agent with sibling-cohort affinity (3) .

Zukra-Dhanuzya purvazadha = nakshatra of Zukra provides a strong dose of artistic and musical taste.

Zukra enjoys romantic drama in bhava-5.

Zukra-yuti-Guru * Zukra-yuti-Shani adds the portfolio of 5, 6, 7, 8 to Zukra's rulership 3-10.

Zukra nichha in Svamsha with Surya-Rahu. The wife was said to have disliked the intense publicity that accompanied her celebrity marriage (Rahu) and disagreement ensued.

From emotional basis of Kumbha-Chandra lagna, Yogakaraka Zukra rules 4-9 suggesting homelife (4) and doctrine (9). The young couple shared a New York area (4) and Roman-rite Catholic (9) upbringing.

As karma-pati, Zukra suggests that the wife may serve as an agent of the public reputation and facilitator of social visibility. The choice of wife would have been very important for a prominent public figure such as young JFK.

Environment of recognizing the spousal mate

According to friends, the couple first met in the office of his maternal aunt who was a senior publicist . His wife-to-be was working as a junior publicist (Zukra bhratru-pati-3 publications) for a prestigious fashion design group (Zukra-5 in nakshatra of Zukra purvazadha fashion)

The relationship was cemented at a party given by JFK Jr's best friend, his maternal cousin Anthony. "Anthony's party" is indicated as the place of awareness of the mutual interest in marriage via these steps:

  1. counting from matrikaraka Chandra, step three bhava to Mesha = mother's younger sister (JFK's aunt Lee Radziwill).

  2. The younger sister's eldest son = from Mesha count 5. Arrive as Rahu-Simha * radical lagna. (Among his other credentials, Anthony was a royal prince * Simha).

  3. From Rahu lagna (= JFK's cousin Anthony) count five again to indicate an entertainment "party" (5) especially one with a high prestige factor (5) and celebrity guests (5).

  4. Chandra + 3 + 5 + 5 arrives at putra bhava containing Zukra + Shani + Guru. It is a complex environment (three graha, six bhava-pathi, 11th-from-Chandra social networks) with many people and many different pressures. That's where young JFK met his soon-to-be-wife Carolyn Bessette (Zukra).

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

  • Shani-Dhanuzya * heavy old doctrines * class-conscious ideology * conventional beliefs * rigid theories * unyielding dogma * pressure to accept the common catechesis * weight of old patronage systems * structural compression upon hips + sacroiliac + sacral plexus * oppressive priests * doctrinal rules * must normalize the life-philosophy * limitations on global travel * slow elder professors * proletarian worldview * scarce preaching resources
  • Shani in Bhava-5 * steady time-structured intelligence * heavy responsibility for children * pessimistic in romance * cautious financial speculation * resists ceremony * limits special entitlements * obligatory entertainments * dreads political games * tightly disciplined creativity * mother's family often rigidly conventional * blocked heart-and-spine * subdued sparkle * performance fatigue * intolerant of time-wasting amusements * elders maintain ordinary rights
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * social resistance to generous expansions * slow elder teachers * pragmatic philosophy * limited scope of understanding * doctrinal discipline * constrained growth * conventionally regulated beliefs * optimism limited by resistant old structures * faith in the rule of law * class-hierarchical ideology
  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity * limited luxuries * orderly feminine figures * pragmatic finance * contractual discipline * socially constrained harmony * conventionally regulated pleasures * trust in age * mutuality over time * class-structured arrangements


rogesha-6 + yuvati-pati-7

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

  • Rahu-Singha * nichha * shimmering illusion of charisma * craving for attention * extraordinary entertainments * mask of radiant confidence * over-reaching, unique intelligence * marvelous drama *  fascinating entitlements * illusory flash of brilliant gambling * extravagant games * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of  brilliant risk-taking * fabulous speculations * glittering political power * seeks privilege via celebrity roles
  • Rahu in bhava-1 * passion for fleshly vitality * in svabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous physical visage * extraordinary athletic action * outsider who cleverly insinuates into a noble identity * smoky, oily aura * desires competitive advantage * exceptionally recognizable appearance * exhilarating force of nature * thrilling champion of non-standard lifestyles * social mobility via dynamic movement * powerful personality * innovative behavior challenges existing norms * culturally mixed self-image * embodies exciting new energies * self-promotion via blood-and-birth * double agent * over-reaching ambition for empowered individuality * craves special importance * trespasses cultural limitations of race-class-creed-gender * fascinating figure * may represent a cult of personality

Desire to be recognized (Rahu) as a Great Personality

Rahu in bhava-1 John F. Kennedy Jr. became a celebrity at age one, at onset of his Rahu Mahadasha in 1961.Dramatic, magnetically charismatic, attention-and-elevation craving Rahu-Singha lagna. Rahu also in the Svamsha yuti lagnesha Surya and the nichha-Zukra indicating the growth-challenging quality of his interpersonal relationships.

Rahu-1 social attribute package supported by lagnesha Vrischika-Surya-4 = extraordinary, uncoiling of passionate energies, and a degree of personal, physical charisma (Simha) leading toward a personality cult

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

  • Ketu-Kumbha * sociably dissociates from distribution webs * odd friends * walks away from regulated systems * incomplete nexus * empty profits * dissolves knitting * severed connections * not limited by conventional community * disarrayed ecologies * ignores restriction on futurism * releases a purple cloud of knotted linkage into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-7 * ambivalent toward agreements * absentee advocates * disregards contractual loyalties * disinterested in mutuality * wanders from the middle-balance * irrelevance of equity * surrenders alliances * abandons the usual covenants * ignores advice * incoherent promises * liberation via surrendered negotiations * unless other graha in 7, may prefer to live free from partners
  • Ketu-yuti-Chandra * insecure * foggy sensitivity * empty feelings * unsustainable habits * ambivalent mother * disinterested in cultural routines * peculiar parenting * emotional apathy * surrenders the ship * abandoned vessels * incomplete nurturing * distanced from the ethnicity * fragmented caretaking * disconnected roots * liberation via release of home comforts

Ambivalence (Ketu) toward trusts, deals, agreements, matches, equity, justice, advocacy, attorneys, partners, alliances, contracts, weakened mutual interest with Others

Gochara Graha at dematerialization event

Gochara Kuja opposed Kuja's enemy gochara Shani.

yuvati-pati-7 Shani and randhresha-8 Guru simultaneously gochara in Mesha. Mesha = randhresha-8 navamsha, indicating (although not proving) the simultaneous death of his wife. Because yuvati-pati-7 and randhresha-8 are yuti in radix and both are uttama in navamsha, the joint-death significators gain strength.

randhresha-8 shows not timing of death but rather * circumstances * of death. Radix Guru reveals the circumstances of death (in bhava-5 see yuvati-pati-7 wife, Zukra = another female, Guru-Dhanuzya shows thigh muscles contracting + rogesha-6 Shani = some illness and perhaps some conflict). Gochara Guru was in Mesha = internal combustion engines and heat generated by machinery.

  • Samchara Kuja crossing bhukti-pati Budha-Thula. accidental death in a vehicle crash. Kuja bandesha-4 = vehicles, violent attacks.

  • Samchara bandesha-4 Kuja vehicles transits second navamsha Thula. Another suggestive but per se inconclusive marker for decease of wife. Also suggesting that a sudden or aggressive action of partner, perhaps in an argument, may have been the incipient cause of the pilot-error accident.

  • Bhukti pati Budha maraka rules-2 along with lagnesha Sun transiting Karkata via vyaya bhava, suggest the extended dream state of a drowning death in the ocean

Material cause of dematerialization was declared "pilot error". JFK-Jr was piloting his own small airplane, handicapped by a damaged ankle. Shani rules 6 marital conflict, + Shani rules 7 Kumbha ankles.
