BPL commentary

For Pūrvāṣāḍhābirths 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 companion.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music , may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.

Inspirational diplomatic grace

Pūrvāṣāḍhāare often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically, Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine.

They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Masculine births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Shukra vs. Guru.

In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.

Like all Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Shukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.

Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā - Apah

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86

" ... corresponds to rather a low type of character .

One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.

  • Stupid, yet ostentatious and vulgar ,

  • with very few educational advantages.

Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.

  • While he must, because of educational handicaps,

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

  • but ineffectual if put in authority ."

radiantly confident political-dramatic [Surya in bhava-1] rules

  • 1- personality, appearance, embodiment, social-attribute package

Goethe was a voluble [Surya-yuti-Budha] man-about-town in Weimar, a legendary 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.

[Surya-yuti-Budha] shows Goethe's own capacity for administration-management.

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-Tulato 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.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

Johanna Christiana Sophie Vulpius was born in Weimar, 01-Jun-1765 and died in Weimar 06-Jun-1816 [her age 51). Christine was the non-exclusive life-partner and after 14-Oct-1806 the legal wife of Johann Wolfgang Goethe. She was the mother of his five born children [only one child survived to adulthood).

In a husbandly nativity, kalatra-karaka [nīcha] Shukra suggests some illness or servitude of the spouse and Generally, imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in marriage


  • bhava-1 containing Budha-Simha yuti [Surya-Simha]
  • suggesting that Christina deeply supported Goethe's [creativity [Simha] and love of entertainments [Simha] including his numerous romantic endeavors
  • Goethe referred to Christina as his muse. He found her irreplaceable, and was not concerned with public opinion about her social status.

  • 4-homeland, patriotism, schooling, mother + foundations, cultural rhythms, ethnic basis
  • 9-doctrine, philosophy, beliefs, patriarchal figures, pontificating

JWG's dramatic masterpiece = Faust. This tale of all-too-human folly and greed is often required reading for college literature classes. Faust has kept a wide appeal to Euro-culture audiences for more than two centuries.

The creative, political, philosophical pair Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 occupy the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Goethe's brotherly [Kuja] friendship with Karl August, Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenac provided most of his income [11] and prestige opportunities [Rahu] via politicized administrative and managerial appointments to various government projects [3rd-from-3rd).

It was the royal [5] Karl August's belief [Dhanus] in Goethe's wide-ranging talents that allowed Goethe to rise both socially and financially.

yogakaraka + Mangala-Dhanus * [Mangala in bhava-5] rules 4-patriotism ++ 9-philosophy.

Although Mangala-Dhanus will generally bring the energetic, dynamic movement of [Mangala in bhava-5] into the world of creative literature and celebrity politics [5), in his capacity as ruler of bandhu-4 Mangala also allows the excitement of home-invasion [1806] by French soldiers

For Simha indriya-lagna, Budha in bhava-1 creates a Dhanayoga

  • Budha activates 2-banking, conserved assets ++ 11-marketplace income, revenues, goals
  • Budha activates creative-secretive 5-8 from Kumbha-Chandra

[Guru-Meena] in 2nd-from-Chandra suggests birth-family affluence. Goethe was raised in bourgeois comfort by his town-manager dad and educated mother. His various income opportunities were mainly framed as writing, publication, administration, and teamwork projects = Budha.

mystically transformative, permissive, change-expanding [Guru in bhava-8] activates

  • 5-politics, romantic idealism, drama, children, creative arts-literature-poetry, genius, inspired performance
  • 8-cycles of revolutionary transformation, new identities while retaining the existing physical form, invasive psychology, discovery, unveiling, revelatory insight

[Guru in bhava-8] -Meena expansion rules the creative, ambitious Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 ++ secretive, healing Meena-8

[Guru in bhava-8] = multiple identity transformations

  • JWG was known as a literati, a government administrator, an attorney, a scientific illustrator, a romantic lover, and numerous other identities

Randhresha Guru-5 is stressful for children. Goethe had five children with Christine 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 Christine 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, numerous literary and scientific fragments, more than 10,000 letters, and nearly 3,000 drawings by him are extant."


svadu-karaka [sweet] kalatra-karaka [wifely companion]


[dutiful-hierarchical karmesha for Simha indriya-lagna]

[busy-messaging vikrama-pati for Simha indriya-lagna]


[populist Aryaman-3] [navamsha Shukra-Kumbha]

  • [Shukra-Kanya] appreciation of service ministries * likes logical argument * attracted to subordinates * delighted by animals * accepts unbalanced agreements * prefers exploitable partners * pleased by pain relief * enjoys humility * graciously accommodates unfair contracts * sweet alliance with victims * litigious bargaining
  • [Shukra-2] [svabhava] seeks pleasure via gathered treasuries * enjoys banked assets * bargains toward collected equity * feminine-figures predominate the family * gracious storyteller * pretty preservations * balanced linguistic expression * beautiful voice * pleasing designs to adorn the face * aesthetics of mouth + jaw + teeth + hair * graceful neck * prefers historical values * appreciation of speech-and-song * in a husbandly nativity, wifely-companion may be a banker-collector-historian-preserver



  • Learning Pathway experiences may involve feminine-figures who are deceived, disadvantaged, marginalized, or suffering from low self-worth [Kanya 12th-from-balancing Tula].
  • Partnerships personal and professional may be challenged in matters of equity, fairness, mutuality, balance
  • Attracted to servants, employees, service-workers, helpers, and aides.
  • Aesthetic of exploitation.
  • Often displeased with peers.

[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 Christine 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 Christine Vulpius was a strong and capable housekeeper. She boasted neither social nor intellectual pretensions.

Despite Christine 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, Christine was apparently very strong. Goethe boasted to everyone that Christine 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 Christine's own death ten years later.

[nīcha] [Shukra-2] rules 3-writing + 10-governance

[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.

[evaluating-historical Viśākha-2] [navamsha Shani-Urisha]

[Atmakaraka duty, responsibility, class-hierarchies, social-stratification, structure, law, science]

  • [Shani-Tula] overburdened agreements * restricted leverage * mandatory bargaining * strict rules for making agreements * structural compression upon kidney-pancreas * rigidly regulated match-making * must form socially approved partnerships * must honor the lowest-common-denominator in deal-making * mandatory fairness * must normalize social justice * unyielding obligatory diplomacy * must advocate for equity * exchanges must be lawful * must continue conventional negotiations * scarce trading resources * maintainer of old bargains
  • [Shani in Bhava-3] steady time-structured dialogue * heavy responsibility for business * obstructionist younger siblings * disciplined handwork - required writing * must message * obliged to explain * cautious instructions * orderly teamwork * tense interactions * communicative fatigue * chronic sadness * stops spontaneous announcements * mental depression due to old repeating thoughts * may limit the hearing * tight time management * regulated schedules * elders preserve materialistic mentality

Shani activates 7-diplomacy ++ 6-conflict.

Among his other skills, Goethe was a professional diplomat and representative of the royal court

[Shani in Bhava-3] occupies the elder-respecting, old-faith, strict philosophies, punitive, scarcity-preaching 9th-from-Chandra

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.

  • The American leader POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson was a contemporary of Goethe, and Jefferson had traveled in Germany. Replying to a peer who asked whether he had read Goethe, Jefferson reportedly said, " Never!"

Goethe was a dignified agent of the social order, and his governance duties in the Weimar Republic were a source of public recognition and respect. Shani occupies 10th-navamsha

Shani activates Kumbha-7 scientific exchange

Goethe was proudest of his scientific writings and his laborious, detailed scientific schematics Shani in Bhava-3 diagrams . However, these writings and drawings were contextualized by the limited [Shani] knowledge of his era and most have fallen into disuse. However, they are valued as fascinating evidence of the unfolding history of 18th century scientific thought.


rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]

[for Simha indriya-lagna]


[hidden-power Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4] [navamsha Rahu-Vrischika]


  • [Rahu-Dhanus] shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of generous patronage * extraordinary theory * extravagant preaching * unorthodox approach to higher truth * mask of global humanism* fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous proselytism * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of philosophical belief * seeks privilege via guru-roles
  • [Rahu in bhava-5] passion for prestige politics * hungry for celebrity * fascinating romance * extraordinary games * in svabhava of Splendid Surya, the Shadowy Specter seeks exceptional children * outsider who cleverly insinuates into center-stage creative roles * culturally mixed entertainment * amplified poetic idealism * enchanting individual charisma * flamboyant fashion * unusual autobiography * craves admiring attention * intriguing displays of creative genius * seeks important roles in performance art * unconventional literary expression * desires royal entitlement * mesmerizing pageantry * entrancing dramatic splendor * opportunistic lovers * ambitious games-players * may wear the persona [mask] of a thespian * pretentious intellectuality * thrilling demonstrations in the eye of the camera * boundary-breaching politics
  • [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


The political-philosophical pair Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

This double signification indicates the lasting influence of Goethe's well-placed friends. His most powerful relationship, a sincere brotherly [Kuja] friendship and advocate arrangement with Duke Karl-August the ruler of Weimar, created remarkable prestige for Goethe.

These dynamic [Kuja] opportunities [Rahu] connected Goethe to a network of ambitious, philosophical young men.

Thus, his ability to realize his diverse ambitions extended far beyond what would normally be allowed for a young middle-class attorney from a non-aristocratic family
