Masculine NativityPūrvāṣāḍhā * Apah Asadhash * Pooraadam * Purvasharha * Ambudaiva
For Pūrvāṣāḍhā 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 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
Pūrvāṣāḍhā are 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. Male 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.
Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.
He vainly considers himself above his station in life

CARER - SURYA
Goethe was a man-about-town in Weimar, which was in his day a legendary social-intellectual capital.
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.
matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)
CAREER - CHANDRA
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 [dik-bala] 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
bhratru-karaka (brother) * virya-karaka (virile)
CAREER - MANGALA
creative, political, literary, self-activating Mangala in bhava-5 rules
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.
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

CAREER - BUDHA
writing, messaging, lyrics, communications, reports, announcements, documentation
For Simha indriya-lagna, Budha in bhava-1 creates a Dhanayoga
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.
dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)
CAREER - GURU
Guru in bhava-8 = multiple identity transformations
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.
svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wifely companion)
CAREER - SHUKRA
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-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.
duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)
[Atmakaraka] * duty, responsibility, class-hierarchies, social-stratification, structure, law, science
Shani activates 7-diplomacy ++ 6-conflict.
Among his other skills, Goethe was a professional diplomat and representative of the royal court
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!
However, not everyone is equally enamored of Goethe's style.
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)
CAREER - RAHU
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
