Masculine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatrapathi Budha, often Jyeztha-born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power.

In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha-Kita

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

Distinctive features of the nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka


  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the hierarchical structuring rashi of Shani
  • Surya in bhava-3 * center of commerce * mercantile intelligence * smart reports * dramatic instructional delivery * creative descriptions * splendid games of manual-skill * self-referential announcements * confident handcraft * splendid technology  * teamwork roles * entertaining explanations * administrative entitlements * focus on data * eye on process management * regal messaging * bright center of discourse * brilliant gesturing * father may be a businessman-craftsman-communicator
  • Surya-3 parivartamsha Shani-10

CAREER * Surya Karmesha

Surya-Makara is weakened in the final dead degree of Makara ++ the 6/8 shad-ashtakya parivartamsha yoga with Surya's enemy Shani = mixed benefits for both father (Surya) and for son.

It was said of Faruq that he was "a king (Surya) who behaved like a commoner (Shani)" Surya-3 parivartamsha Shani-10

Radio Talks * Addresses to the people (Shani)

In the early years of his rule age 17, at onset of Shani-Shani swabhukti, freshly arrived from British boarding high school, FA delighted his nation by making regular, inspiring - and unprecedented - radio addresses to the common people.

Ruler Shani-Simha-10 marks FA's radio talks as unprecedented for a ruler, yet dignified via Shani

Reflecting his British schooling, AF unlike his predecessors thought it appropriate to communicate with his subjects (Shani rules 4-subjects, citizens)

AF drew considerable praise from world leaders (Shani-10) for this activity. Sadly, as with most parts of his overall governance habits and lifestyle, the radio addresses ceased and his concern for governance waned due partly to the weakness of Surya-Makara.


Dad = Fu'ad al-Awwal. Dad's job title = King of Egypt and Sovereign of Nubia, the Sudan, Kurdufan and Darfur

Commenters of the royal court described his behavior as imperious and self-referential = karmesha Surya-3 parivartamsha Shani-10. Similar to his son, Dad's authority was subject to frequent upheavals (8th) and nearly constant internecine intrigue.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Thula * comforted by rhythmic negotiation of agreements
  • Chandra in Visaka-Radha * comforted by expansive shocks * protectors of widening energy channels * soothed by sudden growth surge
  • Chandra in classroom-12 * comfort in dreams * familiar with ancestor guidance * routine withdrawal from public life * accustomed to private prayer * settled into the rhythm of secluded enclosures * acculturated to Other Worlds * needs to feel the repeating pulse of imaginative inspiration * soothed by intuitive understanding * anchored into sanctuary environments * undulating sleep
  • Somana-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally pro-active * sensitive to brotherly figures * needs to win * comforted by direct forward movement * invigorates the undulating routine * soothed by pioneering innovation * mother is competitive * calmed by routine exercise * feels like a champion
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient * sensitive to exotic figures * needs exciting opportunities * unconventional parenting style * soothed by unusual experiences * undulating desires * craves nurturing * feels exceptional

Chandra-yuti-Rahu + Chandra yuti Kuja (kuja dosha) presents a supreme challenge to the first marriage because it places Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

Kuja dosha formed by Mangala drishti upon 7th-bhava and 7th-from-Chandra is amplified by Rahu .

  • Two marriages + multiple public liaisons.
  • His father had a similar marital experience, denoted by Mangala drishti into Surya-7.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • marriage-1
  • bhava-6 contains Ketu

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-12 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • marriage-2
  • bhava-1 ruled by Mangala-12 = Kuja-yuti-Rahu + Chandra yuti Kuja
  • lifepartner-1 = mother of his three daughters. publicly recorded insults to her caused her to retreat in disgrace. Kuja-yuti-Rahu generating a fierce Kuja Dosha.

Despite the production of three daughters, His Majesty was unable to sustain a connection to his Ketu-6 bride. On the pretext of requiring a male heir (and extricating himself from the intrigues of the aristocrats) Farouk divorced (Ketu) his royal first wife. He promptly re-married a 17-year-old commoner. The second marriage produced the desired male heir, but the second union was also short-lived due to his extreme profligacy.

Two marriages are seen in navamsha Zukra-yuti-Budha, with Budha representing the school-aged second wife.

Significant Rahu-amplified Kuja dosha upon bhava-7 and upon 7th-from-Chandra exacerbates the disconnectivity suggested by Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra

FA married twice and was implicated in countless affairs-du-coeur.
