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."

  • the amazing cluster in 10 combined with Guru-9 parivartamsha Shani-10 Contributes to AE's somewhat self-reflexive interpretation (Budha) of his own role in developing theories which were in fact the product of a scientific collaborative community. AE was blessed by many collegial scientific friendships (Guru-Kumbha-9 in 11th-from-11th) but he often appeared to represent the new theories as entirely his own work.

Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein was a leading developer of the quantum paradigm in 20th century western theoretical physics. He was never long absent from the teaching classroom, and he communicated vigorously with his peer group via highly intellectualized writings such as formal proofs and expositions of thought experiments. Along with his scientific accomplishments, Einstein's ideological (Guru) views on the social order were also highly regarded, which caused him to be invited to govern the new state of Israel. However, he declined and remained in the university.

Einstein was first and foremost a gifted communicator of conceptual ideas (Meena)

Albert Einstein's work is celebrated as an exemplary expression of explanatory genius. By the end of his career Einstein had become a legendary, almost mythical, figure representing the descriptive and predictive power of mathematics combined with intuitive confidence (Surya rules 8). His writings, lectures, and group talks with other scientists created a discussion (3) in the scientific community that produced extraordinary discovery of new principles of spatial interpretation (Rahu-Mangala-uttama-1).

At the level of material expression, bhava-3 = writing, conference presentations, small networks of sibling-like associations, teamwork, and small-group collaboration. Einstein's call to service was first and foremost as a communicator. His true service was as a writer. Writing manually, bhava-3 for both published journal articles and interpersonal letter-writing was the strongest media vehicle for the dissemination of ideas in his era.

Constant communication through writings and verbal presentations at scientific conferences Einstein's writings communicated not only his independent thought (if there is, at high levels of intellectual inquiry, any such thing as independent thought!) but also the results of collaborative (bhava-3) inquiry amongst the international scientific theorists of his day.

Although he was only 25 years old it was the beginning of an international career offering recognition and respect.

Albert Einstein's mother was a community activist whose social networking (11) supported the family business

AE's leadership in the movement to lay a reborn (8) conceptual foundation for modern science has earned him the title Man of the [20th] Century.

Jyeztha Chandra-6 suggests an emotional penetration of the friendship-community in the form of drilling or mining for harvestable profit, but some failure to replenish the providers (nichha-Chandra takes nourishment but often does not re-supply the provisioning source).

Marriage partnership support expectations

AE public marriages follow the pattern of partnership judged from Chandra in bhava-6.

Marriage-1 = 7th-from-Chandra = bhava-5 genius, creativity ruled by uttama-Zukra-3 publications, collaboration.

Marriage-2 = 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-12 privacy, seclusion, interiority rules by Guru-2 family. Else and Albert were cousins raised together in the same family. Second marriage partner was dedicated to defending Einstein against unwanted attentions.

Marriage-1: Mileva Maric was born in Titel-Vojvodina into a Serbian Christian family whereas Albert was raised in a culturally Jewish German home. The young couple studied together at Swiss Federal Polytechnic Institute in Zurich.

Ketu-7 in both D-1 and D-9 indicates emotional and cultural distance, often a culture gap . With Ketu-7, the partners can see each other socio-physically but never fully connect psycho-emotionally. Einstein's parents were opposed to the marriage but his father died in Oct-1902 and the wedding proceeded in Jan-1903.

Mileva Maric is considered to have contributed substantial mathematical support to Einstein's theories, although the details of that contribution have yet to be proven.

On 27-Jan-1902 their first daughter was born in Novi Sad, Serbia but the child disappeared. They married on 06-Jan-1903, and produced two sons. One son became a university professor of hydraulic engineering who wrote several texts definitive in their field. The other son suffered a lifetime of severe mental illness (schizophrenia).

Although behaviorally long separated from Mileva (having joined with Else in 1919) Albert Einstein gave his prize-money from the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics to Mileva Maric. Some observers interpret this action as his acknowledgement of his wife's substantial and essential contribution to his work. Surya-Chandra bhukti , and Chandra-11 which brings awards is also ruler of 7-spouse.

Marriage-2: to Else Einstein = represented socially by 2nd-from-Chandra. Else was not an intellectual and she was not concerned with helping to develop Einstein's perceptual framework. The union was said to be highly companionable and mutually supportive. Einstein had abandoned his children with Marich but he accepted Else's daughters and helped to raise them.

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

  • Mangala-Maraka-Draco * uttama * vigorous competition for elite authority * warrior for social position * proactive regulation * push toward lawful structure * pursues executive roles * dominating energy in institutional governance * conquest of pyramid summit * champion of hierarchical systems
  • Mangala in bhava-8 * drive toward discovery * pursuit of rebirth * revolutionary dynamics * aggressive approach to emergency events * energetic transformations * urge to dig-drill -dive-excavate-plumb-explode-explore * vigorous revelations * explosive eruptions * unexpected force * pushes through camouflage * mysterious conquests * pro-active rejuvenating surgeries
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * thrill of muscular action * competitive ambition * passion to win * fascinating physicality * compulsive drive toward heroic battle * dynamic desires * champion of culture-clash * forward thrust toward opportunity * forceful pursuit of privilege


Einstein demonstrated self-referential and self-reflexive behavior based on self-importance. However Kuja rules 11-communities and 4-education; he was not a loner but rather an educator (4) and a participant in the marketplace of ideas (11).

intense Kuja dosha upon Ketu-7 further impacts marriage-1 and

Einstein is recorded to have told his adopted step-daughter that he conducted 11 extramarital affairs during his second marriage (to the step-daughter's mother).


ruler-of-4 Kuja occupies lagna and Kuja drishti to bhava-4 with tremendous strength indicating that Einstein was a natural, vigorous, and lifelong teacher

however Kuja also rules bhava-11 = 6th-from-Chandra.suggesting that, as is common for university researchers, his teaching duties created a degree of emotional conflict, Also, his homeland was destroyed by war during WW-2.

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

lagnesha for Mithunaya radical lagna

AE published more than 300 scientific papers ++ over 150 non-scientific works. Like Galileo, AE was an accomplished musician who preferred the musician identity.

  • Budha-Meena * nichha * intuitive communications * articulation of private spiritual guidance * imaginative pronouncements * explains the astral patterns * abstract conversations * symbolic information * foggy thinking * psychic instructions * meditative messages * describes visionary procedures * fuzzy logic * hands-arms-shoulders send dreamlike gestures
  • Budha in bhava-10 * communications publicity * narrative of leadership * makes official pronouncements * describes social responsibilities * conversations about policy decisions * talks about maintaining order * explainer of governance * detailed executive announcements * delivers lawful information * chats about social authority * scripted hierarchies * dignified sibling-cohort * reputation for writing
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * amusing explanations * entertaining chatter * central roles in communication * brightly clear descriptions * dramatic enunciation * confidently delivers instruction * articulation of radiant certainty * political messenger * talkative father-figures

  • Budha-yuti-Shani * explainer of rules * dictates about system requirements * regulatory roles express communication skills * lawful planning * slow scheduling * conventional conversations * message of institutional order * mature management * makes necessary announcements * cautious gestures * talkative elders

nichha-bhanga Budha * this claim is possible due to Budha-yuti-Surya because Surya rules the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra as well as Budha-yuti-Zukra because Zukra occupies Meena-uttama


Nichha-Budha suffers from excessive conceptualism while expressing mundane communications. Einstein was apparently a very holistic thinker whose view of reality was centered in the boundaryless All-One Source consciousness. Budha becomes highly structured due to proximity to Shani, so most of the incompleteness and spaciness of the nichha-Budha is compensated.

Early apparent learning disabilities

These days young Einstein would be called a spatial learner. Modern elementary school teachers would recognize and accommodate his learning style. Unfortunately, in the late 1800's in Germany, he suffered at the hands of schoolteachers who accused him of daydreaming and being stupid. He was caught in a punitive (Shani), strictly linear, repetitive-drill school system Budha-yuti-Shani. He was considered rather witless. His speech was delayed Budha-yuti-Shani.

Yet, he blossomed when he discovered physics = a highly spatial subject wherein his incredible imagination (Budha-Meena) could roam the multi-dimensional cosmos. He was not introduced to academic physics until his teens. Presumably his early educational years during Budha mahadasha might have been a quite frustrating time for his parents, and his teachers. However Einstein's writings report a fairly happy childhood..


Budha rules bhava-6 war. Einstein was an avowed pacifist and he regularly spoke for peaceful options.

Plagiarism and Missing Citations

The primary criticism against his written work is plagiarism. Einstein frequently, even usually, failed to cite the work of fellow theorists whose ideas contributed to his published conclusions.

Einstein did not properly attribute his human researcher sources within his academic writings. This negligence earned him the ire of fellow scientists who found him intellectually arrogant (Surya-yuti-nichha-Budha). Fellow theorists who shared their ideas with him but received no recognition for their contributions accused him of illicitly appropriating the ideas of others.

Einstein may have had some interpretive-communicative disability within the Autism Spectrum. by those who have it, Autistic (self-focused) thought is often not felt as a disability but rather a perceptual gift. He is reported to have not spoken complete sentences until the age of nine. Initially his parents and schoolmasters thought he was not very bright.

During his Budha Mahadasha childhood, young Einstein was considered autistic and possibly developmentally delayed. He did not speak clearly until the age of nine. He was not a distinguished young student.

Villainized = Budha rogesha

At times in Einstein's career, his work was controversial. He was accused of appropriating other's ideas when he was, in all probability, clarifying and better formulating concepts that were partially developed by others.

He was villainized by the Nazi regime as a perpetrator of "Jewish physics " which was propagandized as an anti-Aryan intellectual disease. His politics (5) were also highly controversial, including passionate Zionism, pacifism, and his involvement in the US Civil Rights movement.

During Chandra-Guru bhukti , just when his career in physics was beginning to blossom and his second family life was established, the Nazi police began attacking, imprisoning, and exterminating Jews. He was invited to the USA (12) Although older than 50, his Guru-2 helped Einstein to learn English and teach university classes in English.

Children and Stepchildren

Children of the second wife = 5th from 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-4 home-parenting. Stepdaughters brought into his marriage to his cousin Else are easily incorporated into the home.

His own biological children are less easy to accommodate, as represented by bhava-3-5-7 (bhava-7 shows his schizophrenic youngest son)

Zukra-10 = public respect-and-reputation

due to reports and announcements, especially during the period of Zukra.

Zukra rules performance art, creative scholarship (5) based on publications, conversations, cohort = 3rd-from-3rd

He was politically (5) active and outspoken on matters of nuclear war (against) and independent Israel (for).


In a masculine nativity, Zukra represents the wifely-figures. One way to measure the number of feminine partners in a masculine-identified lifeplan is to evaluate the number and strength of any graha yuti Zukra.

Surya, Budha, and Shani accompany the daitayguru. Budha = siblings and cousins. Einstein's second wife Else was his childhood playmate and first cousin. Surya randresha generally suggests liaisons with team-mate, fellow writer or publisher.


Zukra has a beautifying effect on Einstein's communications and appearance

Zukra-Meena * uttama Einstein was an accomplished musician and also a bit of a fashionisto. Typical of Zukra-yuti-Surya, Einstein was charmingly handsome in his own unique way. His innocently rakish fashion sense captivated the public. He was photographed extensively in later years (Shani age, Zukra beauty). His image remains the most recognizable icon for genius (Surya) in the modern Western social iconography.

his collaborative work in professional conferences (3) and through publication of scholarly articles and letter-writing (3); and also upon the architectonic harmony of his discoveries


Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-10 = political and governance activity.

Empowered Zukra-Meena * uttama rules Arudha lagna

Public illusion - Arudha - ignores several preceding decades of scientific experimentation and discussion. It perceives only an act of pure glamour (5) Einstein's published work is understood by historians of science to be a cumulative expression of numerous minds doing advanced research in theoretical physics during Einstein's era. However, in popular imagination, Einstein is known as the Genius of the Century on the cover of TIME magazine, who single-handedly transformed western understanding of the core structure of physical reality.

Stoic Shani rules Karakamsha bhava-9-Kumbha scientific theory

Disciplining, methodical, restrictive Shani drishti upon 12-research ++ 4-teaching ++ 7-peer support

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

  • uttara-azadha guiding spiritual light * Rahu-Makara-Draco * shimmering illusion of dignity * craving for social status * mirage of legitimate authority * mask of hierarchy * over-reaching acts of institutional leadership * fascinating ascent to respected position * unorthodox methods of social ordering * extraordinary claims to statutory jurisdiction * extravagant elitism * thrilling seniority * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of responsible governance * bossy pretense * seeks privilege via regulator-roles

  • Rahu in bhava-8 * passion for mystery * in svabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous veiling * surreptitious recycling * exciting rebirth * fascinating self-reinvention * surgical rejuvenation * outsider who cleverly insinuates into revelatory roles * desires an important role in trauma-healing * fabulous transformations * reveals occult truths * shocking discovery of confidential information * mixed-culture revolutionary * finds opportunity in catastrophe * magical masquerade * poses as a secretary (secret-keeper) of a powerful entity * risk-rewarding in-laws * irregular inheritance * unusual alimonies * boundary-breeching disclosure * camouflage of undisclosed assets * stimulated by dangerous emergencies * may appear as a tantric initiator * alluring identity changes * pursues social mobility via hidden empowerments
  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition * magnified championship * exotic pursuits * tricky innovation * opportunistic brother-warriors * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of dynamic energy * hypnotic attack * passion for engines * craves hot movement * invasive force of cross-cultural mixing

Rahu-8 casts drishti upon 12-research ++ 2-knowledge ++ 4-homeland, schooling, cultural foundations

Rahu-Makara-8 camouflages the tremendous power of the cycle of birth-and-death, behind a mask of institutional conformity. Kuja rules 6 + 6th-from-6, adding the pattern of war.

Kuja-yuti-Rahu = identification with tremendous explosions, massive scale of death enforced during WW-2

Surya-Rahu bhukti almost-death

  • During 1917-1920 AE suffered recurring bouts of jaundice, liver illness, and general weakness. During this time, he was nursed by cousin Elsa who became his mistress.

Rahu-Meena-11 navamsha = capacity to earn. Much of his earning was prize money and royalties from publication, but AE also earned teaching salaries and lecture honoraria


AE = framed as an intellectual hero, who plumbed (Kuja) the depths of the unknown (Rahu) to discover a view of the universe which changed the modern world forever. Exotic (Rahu) ideas into competitive (Kuja) action. Male-energized pursuit of development of tantric secrets: describing the movement of prana from energy state into mass state and back (in perpetual cycle).

Was the Theory of Relative the ultimate discovery for exploring the reality of the Mineral Kingdom?

In a sense, yes, because those explainers who have come and are coming after AE are using post-4th-dimensional filters.

Kuja-yuti-Rahu receives no Parashari drishti. There are no constraints upon explosive, competitive direct forward movement (Mangala) and no constraints upon AE's desire to self-elevate to higher levels of privilege via handling of dangerous environments (Rahu).

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

  • Ketu-Karkata * calmly dissociates from foundational habits * surrenders material security * placidly empty shelters * disregards conventional caretaking * not limited by customary routines * ignores restriction on farming-and-fishing * abandons owned property * forgives the ancestors * releases a soothing pink cloud of  ancient rhythms into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-2 * abandons the preserved values * eccentric voice * odd face * disperses family affluence * disregards conventional limits on sound-music-language * disinterested in genetic lineage * surrenders the hoard * odd food * peculiar precious goods * abdicates banker-conserver-collector roles * dissolves libraries * devalues treasuries * unless other graha in 2, may prefer to live free from historic traditions

Ketu occupies the philosophical 9th-from-Chandra suggesting that neither AE nor his mom subscribed to a fixed doctrine. The family were non-observant cultural Jews.

Ketu-2 ++ apathy, wandering, and weak psychic boundaries in the family of origin.

Ketu also in 5th navamsha * dispersion of the first child Lieserl

Behari commentary upon Ketu in 2nd pada of Pushya-Sidhya, "You will need to be cautious of bad association..."18-Apr-1955 dematerialization unattended unimpeded (age 76) * Rahu-Chandra bhukti * Chandra rules maraka-2

Comforting Chandra rules Ketu-2

  • AE died without benefit of last rites. No family nor even any human company were present, in a hospital room in New Jersey.
