Masculine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni


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 Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companions.

For those born into the Shukra-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 theatrical values of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

[Sweetly Suave Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics , romantic idealism, 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 Shukra and dhana=pati 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 Shukra-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 Shukra 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.

QUOTATION Pūrvaphalgunī

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."

Goethe was a voluble [Surya-yuti-Budha] man-about-town in Weimar, alegendary social-intellectual capital in WG's day.

Weimar attracted talented people from throughout Europe. Goethe was born into the privileged classes and he held professional roles as a high-ranking court officer

Throughout his life, Goethe needed to negotiate a very challenging combination of a super-strong administrative [uchcha] [Shani in Bhava-3] and a super-strong creative Surya in bhava-1. These graha facilitate writing and publishing, governance and management, along with other graha which articulate his remarkable range of talents and skills.


Dad was a town manager, documenter and report-writer [Surya-yuti-Budha] ++ as a recognized leader and politician. Dad had a large presence Surya in bhava-1 amplified by drishti from Rahu-5. Attorney father had an imposing influence upon Goethe.

A burning-strong Surya-Simha receiving the incoming drishti from Rahu-Dhanus-5 made Goethe a famous creative figure. His literary writings were continuously popular from in his own day without lapse until the present time.

Goethe was not only a scientist [Kumbha] and philosopher Chandra in Purvabhadra.

JWG was also the songwriter of numerous bawdy German folk melodramas that were wildly popular and performed in village taverns.

Many of his dramatic works are written for an earthy, non-literate audience due to Chandra's ruler, Shani-Tula [uchcha] in bhava-3 writing. These comic-tragic tales of village life provided an outlet for his imagination [Chandra activates 12] and established him as a familiar German cultural icon.[Chandra]

Chandra = folkways. Goethe wrote countless bawdy tavern songs, and more formal lyrical poems too. Goethe was a serious scholar in many fields and he had the discipline Shani-Tula to produce voluminous documentation. In addition he was said to be a chatterbox Budha in bhava-1 [dikbala] showing delight in spoken language, dialect pronunciations, and local twang.

During the intervening two centuries, science has advanced while basic human consciousness has not. Over time, Goethe's drama and poetry have outperformed his abundant scientific works Chandra in Shata-taraka. Yet even the older scientific drawings are still admired for their detailed accuracy and stylistic beauty.

Randhresha Guru-5 is stressful for children. Goethe had five children with Christiane Vulpius, but only their eldest son survived to adulthood.

Goethe's surviving son Julius August Walther von Goethe was born in 1789 [Goethe's age 40). Goethe's marriage to his son's mother Christiane Vulpius occurred in 1806 [Goethe's age 57). His son was obliged to live with the bourgeois stigma of illegitimacy for seventeen years. Julius August Walther von Goethe, the only surviving son predeceased his father.

Yet Guru-Meena-8 is financially well-placed in 2nd-from-Chandra, and the senior Goethe arranged favorable positions for the junior Goethe.

Goethe was a recognized polymath who displayed a stunning variety of artistic, literary, scientific, and legal talents.. While Goethe's secrets were many, his public side was dramatic and inspiring Mangala-yuti-Rahu-Dhanus . His works were celebrated as peak examples of German wisdom, philosophy, teaching, and numerous diverse expressions of understanding. Goethe demonstrated his genius via an astounding variety of connected fields of study.

  • According to wikipedia, these included "epic and lyric poetry written in a variety of metres and styles prose and verse dramas memoirs an autobiography literary and aesthetic criticism treatises on botany, anatomy, and colour and four novels. In addition, naumerous literary and scientific fragments, more than 10,000 letters, and nearly 3,000 drawings by him are extant."

[Shukra-Kanya] [nīcha] occupies the secretive the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's romantic adventures and misadventures were also celebrated, as he seemed to eschew conventional relationship conduct while becoming a Weimar favorite ladies' man.

Shukra is also responsible for the orderly aspect of JWG's governance career.

  • Shukra activates Karakamsha = bhava-10 governance duties
  • Shukra activates Arudha lagna = bhava-10 governance duties
  • Shukra activates [10th navamsha] containing Shani + Budha + Ketu= career in song, art, governance


[Shukra-Kanya] suggests that Goethe's wife needed to be a service-class woman not a fragile woman like Lili with whom he dissolved engagement in Shani-Ketu bhukti. Finally married Christiane the house-servant and artists model, 31 years later in 1806 and they produced five children.

Goethe's amorous lifestyle was accepted by his peers. Shukra-Kanya suggests marriage with a servant-figure or one committed to a ministry of service. His wife Christiane Vulpius was a strong and capable housekeeper. She boasted neither social nor intellectual pretensions.

Despite Christiane hailing from a much lower [considered vulgar] social register, after 19 years of being unlicensed lovers, Goethe married her at his age 57.

An earthy woman who was a house-servant and artist's nude model, christiane was apparently very strong. Goethe boasted to everyone that Christiane had counter-attacked marauding soldiers who threatened their home and their children.

Shukra in the secretive, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's socially conscious mother [Chandra-7] was horrified at his marriage, and died soon after their wedding. They remained married until Christiane's own death ten years later.

[nīcha] Shukra * Despite his dignified job and high-placed friends, Goethe was prone to writing and enacting bawdy, salt-of-the-earth musical melodrama. He broke marriage-engagement contracts. He consorted with ladies of diverse reputation. He was generally a man-about-town.

His amorous affairs and in particular his marriage to a servant woman Shukra-Kanya caused consternation among his bourgeois peerage. However Goethe's literary reputation has steadily increased over the centuries, due mainly to Shani-[uchcha] 3 which maintains the appreciation value of written works.

Enduring Literary Legacy

Most of Goethe's literary oeuvre is still in print, 250 years after he produced it. His poetic writings continue to influence the minds of each new generation of dedicated readers. Goethe - especially Faust - is read by university students and by intellectuals who specialize in the study of European culture. It is common to hear non-German intellectuals declare that they undertook the study of the German language solely for the purpose of reading Goethe!

  • Goethe's style and ideals provided a major influence upon the work of Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner who was the founder of Anthroposophy.

However, not everyone is equally enamored of Goethe's style.

Goethe was proudest of his scientific writings and his laborious, detailed scientific schematics Shani in Bhava-3 diagrams .

However, they are valued as fascinating evidence of the unfolding history of 18th century scientific thought.
