"If we have chosen the position in life in which we can most of all work for mankind, no burdens can bow us down, because they are sacrifices for the benefit of all;

then we shall experience no petty, limited, selfish joy, but our happiness will belong to millions, our deeds will live on quietly but at work, and over our ashes will be shed the hot tears of noble people."

Masculine Nativities

Purva-bhadra * Aja-eka-pada

BPL commentary

For Purvabhadra births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati 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 Guru-ruled paradigm of Aja-ekapada, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Pegasus. Their purpose is expansion of prosperity= proshtha.

High forehead. The majority of Purvabhadra nativities are wanderers. Universalist perspective. The majority of Purvabhadra are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles. Those born into the paradigm of Aja-eka-pada are often excellent dancers who bring understanding of growth patterns via Posture and Dance .

Kumbha - Ghata pada 1-2-3 expresses Guru's rulership of 2-collections, affluence ++ 11-revenues, friendships. Guru-and-Shani are mutually neutral. Pada 1-2-3 births are found in the overlap between Guru's financial-social expansions (2-11) and Shani's ability to bridge the physical-astral worlds (1-12). Pada 1-2-3 are often involved in large-scale social economic networks which have both a public identity and an invisible private reality, such as international finance or government-corporate aid groups. They can also be social scientific theorists and writers on topics of large-scale social behavior.

Meena - Antya pada-4 expresses Guru's rulership of 1-embodiment ++ 10-leadership, reputation. Brihaspati rules both Purvabhadra nakshatra ++ Meena rashi, creating a concentrated effect of expansive Saptarishi growth patterns. Pada-4 is less concerned with financial affluence and more attuned to visionary truth. Pada-4 may become leaders in wisdom fields such as divinity, philosophy, spiritual healing, clairsentient understanding, envisioning practices, or ancestor guidance.

Themes of broad scope, theoretical understanding, and visionary imagination may contextualize Ajaekapada's terrestrial experience Applies also to Chandra in Purvabhadra-Pegasus

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 88

"... high-strung and nervous in temperament .

They are not very strong constitutionally.

They are rather grave and serious in demeanor

  • and are more interested in the discussion of serious topics than in trivial matters.

they belong to the Mental Group and are by no means orthodox ,

  • preferring to arrive at their beliefs through a process of logical reasoning."

  • Surya in bhava-3 = administration, documentation, literary correspondence
  • Due to ethnic, economic, and political pressure, dad changed his name to Heinrich Marx.
  • Dad insisted that Karl should study law.
  • Dad died when Karl was age-20.

Paternal grandfather

His paternal grandfather had been the Rabbi of Trier. Paternal grandfather = 9th-from-Surya = Guru-Dhanuzya-11 faith community

Wife's father

9th-from-7 can indicate the father of the lifepartner. Bhava-3 contains Rahu + Surya + Chandra, indicating the enthusiasm of Marx's wife's father for Marx's works. His aristocratic father-in-law (uttama-Surya) was a lifetime supporter, and his wife's inheritance sustained the Marx family.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by forward pursuit * settled into warrior rhythms * needs vitality
  • Chandra in Bharani * needs to carry valuable burdens * safeguards the treasuries * protects precious values
  • Chandra in classroom-3 * comfortable with the cohort * familiar with interactive communication * calmed by repetitive announcements * feels the tidal pulse of daily chat * feels sheltered in the parlor * soothed by siblings * intuitive information delivery * settled into the habits of writing * needs continuous commerce * accustomed to routine messaging * emotionally attuned to the rhythms of conversation * undulating signals * ethno-cultural gestures * intuitive handcraft

Collaborative writing team with Friedrich Engels + many discussions with cohort

Bharani Chandra + uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu reside in Bhava-3 = communications, coterie, cohort

Bharani-Yamya = Money Guy Topic of his writings = financial well-being

Bharani-Chandra accepts drishti from Guru-11-Dhanuzya, indicating the friends and relatives who provided him with a lifetime of financial support. His own earnings from writing were very modest.

Although his post-mortem fame derived from his characterization and detailed analysis of the lives of slaves to industrialization (Chandra rogesha + Somana-yuti-Rahu -3)who lived in the most bitter material poverty, Marx and his growing family lived in fairly bourgeois circumstances much of the time due to the largesse of his community. Nevertheless this ease was punctuated with periods of poverty and illness due to Chandra-rogesha.


Karl Marx's mom Henriette Pressburg was an educated Jewish woman from a financial family Bharani Chandra of the Netherlands. Under anti-Semitic pressure and pursuant to the family's Enlightenment perspective, Henriette converted herself and her children to the state religion of Prussia, the Lutheran Catechism, in 1824 when Karl was age-six.

Chandra rogesha indicates some conflicts with mom, and Marx wrote that his family was contentious except for his beloved father.

Wealthy uncle on mother's side

His mother's younger sister's husband became an affluent tobacco merchant, and this wealthy Dutch uncle substantially supported Karl Marx and his children until his mother's death. Guru-11-Dhanizya indicates the mother's younger sister's husband.

MARRIAGE emotional support expectations of partnership

7th-from-Chandra-3 Mesha contains dissociative Ketu-9

Marx married Johanna "Jenny" von Westphalen, the daughter of a Prussian aristocrat. His wife's father was a great friend and supporter. The marriage was moderately scandalous due to their culture gap.

Baroness Jenny von Westphalen was four years elder to Karl = Shani-1 drishti into bhava-7 ++ Shani-1 drishti into Surya yuvati-pati

Clearly his wife was willing to take some social risks * yuvati-pati-7 Surya-yuti-Rahu * and she herself would have supported his affinity for the working class (Surya + rogesha-6 Chandra)

Jenny received a series of gifts and legacies which allowed the family to maintain a bourgeois standard of living. the largest sum given from her own mother's estate = 2nd-from- 4th-from-7th = Guru-11-Dhanuzya, the wish-fulfilling-cow.

Bhava-3 indicates lifepartner's father

Jenny's dad, a liberal intellectual Prussian aristocrat, was a great friend of Karl Marx and a buddy of Marx's dad as well. The families were socially interlinked. Via her father's substantial support both financially and ideologically, Jenny and Karl were allowed to marry despite the social gap between their age and class identity.

Writing Career = Surya + Chandra + Rahu-3

While he was a staunch and vigorously intellectual theorist not prone to sympathy, Marx wrote extensive about the sufferings of the common laboring people = Chandra rogesha-6 .

Marx's theoretical argumentation (bhava-6) was outrageous Chandra-yuti-Rahu * in its claim that the proletariat (6, also Bharani-Yamya) possessed inherent rights to ownership of property. Rahu claims privileges which traditionalist Shani would deny.

Marx's arguments about rights (uttama-Surya+ yuvati-pati-7 ) were legally reasoned (yuvati-pati-7 uttama-Surya-yuti-Chandra) in a uniquely flamboyant (Rahu) fashion.

Marx was a disciplined student of philosophy. Dharmesha-9 Zukra + Budha student-Kumara in bhava-4 schooling. vidya-pati-5 Budha in 4 = creative intelligence located in the bhava of folkways, ethnic roots, ancient customs and cultural norms.


He was well-educated in the rigorously conceptual but psycho-emotionally transcendent roots Hegelian political-philosophy of his day. He knew the ethnic roots of his homeland vnd deployed the native logic with intellectual conviction. (Surya-3 intellectual courage)

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

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of interaction * competitive commerce * proactive information delivery * energetic group collaboration * dynamic debate * dominating gestures * lively writing * kinetic conversation * push toward explanatory instruction * champion of process management
  • Mangala in bhava-5 * drive toward creativity * pursuit of games * pioneering speculation * dynamic style of flamboyant display * competitive children * energized by romance * political conquests * productive intelligence * push toward celebrity * champion of romance * promotes choice-making *propulsive genius * actively charming *

sahaja-pathi ++ karmesha-10 occupies 5 = fame (karmesha-10 in 5) for literature (bhratru-pati-3 in 5)

Karmesha Mangala occupies 5

  • Karl Marx never held any job except as a writer and public speaker. Not only is Mangala-5 the Karmesha, but Mangala-5 creativity, politics, genius also rules the powerful graha located in bhava-3 writing = Somana-yuti-Surya + Somana-yuti-Rahu
  • Marx was a highly original and confident (uttama-Surya) writer. Many of his publications were recognized by the public before his death (karmesha-10 Mangala in 5, creative performance literature).
  • However, when the karmesha occupies 5, the career is always at a 6/8 angle from the creative intelligence. He was still writing and editing some works at the time of death, and some publications were forbidden in some countries during his lifetime. Therefore, some of Marx's writings were not published until decades after his decease.
  • the nature of the literature However, brilliant also has a complaining quality because Kuja-Mithunaya is unhappy in the rashi of his enemy Budha. Exacerbated by Rahu-yuti-rogesha-Chandra-3.

Marx's literature has a bilingual (Mithunaya) element. KM wrote mainly when living in the country of England but mainly using the language of Germany. Marx's written English became more fluent over time, but KMs works only reached a wider intellectual public after being translated by Marx's good friend and collaborator (Mithunaya) Friedrich Engels. Certain items of German philosophical terminology have no effective translation equivalent into English, so even the English translations are liberally sprinkled with intellectual German.

Mangala in bhava-5 Impact on children

Mangala-5 often indicates miscarriages and challenges regarding children. Usually it suggests numerous pregnancies of which only some come to full-term, or numerous childbirths with only a few surviving offspring (much depends upon Guru). Only three of Marx's seven children survived to adulthood. His second daughter suicided when she was 66 years old (see Ketu).

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

  • Budha-Urisha * financial communications * articulation of tonal value * talks about stored goods * discusses collected assets * delivers descriptive evaluations * sends historic messages * skillfully signals the music * preservation methods * describes sound frequencies * hands-arms-shoulders send sensual gestures
  • Budha in bhava-4 * narrative of cultural roots * skillfully describes parochial routines * delivers ritual instructions * discusses protective caretaking * talks in rhythmic comfortable style * analysis of foundational security * conversations about defense * handcraft of fenced shelter * explainer of homeland customs * patriotic slogans * detailed communication about nourishment * team collaboration in farming-and-fishing * transportation scheduling * seasonal planning * familiar sibling conversations
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * explainer of balanced arrangements * diplomatic conversations * parity-seeking discussions * manual adjustments * enjoys words * sweet descriptions * delivers instruction about relationships * articulator of equity in agreements * message of fairly bargained contracts * skilled in songwriting * talkative sister-cousin-cohort * detailed lyricist * attracts chatty partners
  • Budha-yuti-Rahu * thrillingly risky narrative * culturally mixed communication skills * ambitious descriptions * exotic instructions * desire to explain fascinating facts * message of exciting opportunities * chatty foreigners * documents the dialog of outsiders * talkative interlopers

Budha in bhava-4 talking about property (4) == rules Karakamsha = Mithunaya-bhava-5

Best known as a highly influential scholarly writer and litterateur on the topic of values Budha-Urisha and property Budha in bhava-4 and cultural roots of commercial money behaviors Budha in bhava-4

Bantering blustering Budha creates a mixed experience for the Kumbha nativity. As vidya-pati-5, busy Budha can provide creative genius. Yet, as randhresha-8, breakthrough Budha represents the emergency and upheaval forced and sudden changes.

Budha = both a brilliant articulator of (Hegelian) logic (Budha logal) in a scholarly (5) context ++ a transformative randhresha = revolution and sudden social change.

Health = 8-Kanya = 6th-from-Chandra,

Busy Budha rules-and-occupies 6th-from-Chandra, generating of emotionally motivated health challenges rooted in home issues, nationality, and of course Mother.

Marx suffered (what were in the mid-1800's classified as) liver ailments. Jyotisha would identify Kanya as digestive and the health issues as primarily diet toxicity. Marx had a notoriously poor diet and smoked heavily. Toward the end of life, his ongoing skin condition (boils, carbuncles) because so severe that he could neither sit nor lie comfortably.

Guru * dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)

  • Guru-Dhanuzya * mulatrikona * much philosophy * wide worldview * doctrine of inclusive diversity * broad scope of guidance * humanistic ideology * permission to preach * expands the range of beliefs * multiple theories * generous priests * global beneficence * many sacred teachings
  • Guru in bhava-11 * great friendliness * much networking * much achievement * big social-participation groups * several large assemblies * numerous revenues * many social-material goals * extensive marketplace linkage * a patron of community exchange systems * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be an earner-socialite-networker


dhanapathi-values-treasuries-2 = Guru in bhava-11 * dhana yoga

dhanapati-2+Vriddhi-pati-11 = marketplace revenues, income from multiple sources, generous friends

Marx was born into an educated, bourgeois German family. He had a fairly large social network of patrons and fellow visionaries whose donations helped to maintain his publications and conference presentations.

His father was a businessman and a lawyer. Young Karl would have learned how to conduct a network of relationships.

He was from a bourgeois family as was his wife. He usually had enough mani-money to support his family while he was writing his long, extensively argued books. However on those occasions when he appeared to be short of funds, his network of supportive friends (11) always rallied to provide adequate economic support.

Engels the best friend within a network of many friends

One especially expansive friend = Friedrich Engels. The volume of Marx's output pales in comparison with that of his comrade Engels, who was even a greater writer and a greater translator (Guru in 11, friends).

svakshetra Vriddhi-pati-11 Guru in labha bhava = a networked, regulated system philosophical (Dhanuzya) viewpoint and extensive teaching on marketplace (11) behaviors, within the context of history .


strong Guru drishti upon putra bhava provides seven childbirths, but Mangala ruler of 6th from 5th assures that only three of those children will survive the epidemics (6) of the day and live into adulthood. As dhanapati-2 Guru who gives progeny is also a maraka graha (although the primary maraka for Kumbha lagna is always Sury

Marx's income, financial position, inherited cintamani * mani * money, spending patterns:

He enjoyed a substantial inheritance from his deceased parents = Dharmesha-9 fortune = Zukra-4 wealth from parents ** which However, he spent completely within a five years = Shani in 12th from 2nd = dissolution of financial accounts (2) via necessities, science, Shani

his lifestyle could never be called posh but at the same time he was able to support his large family = Zukra-4 nice home + Budha vidya-pati-5 in 4 general bhagya good luck in the home

He received gifts throughout life from friends who wanted him to continue to write.

  • svakshetra Guru in 11, financially privileged, and philosophically motivated friends.
  • Guru =dhanapati-2 + 9th-from-Chandra . Much of Marx's operating cash to support a household of seven children with servants and a fashionable wife was provided given to him by friends and supporters who believed in his mission (11).

Zukra * svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wife)

* Malavya Yoga

Yogakaraka Zukra rules 4-foundations, childhood, cultural rhythms, ethnic basis ++ 9-doctrine, philosophy, credenda, beliefs
  • Zukra-Urisha * svakshetra * valuable arrangements * likes capitalization * appreciates natural resources * pleased by worthy collections * attracted to beautiful sounds * acquisitive sensuality * cherished accruals * financial harmony * richly historic environments * delighted by precious goods * prefers luxury-loving partners
  • Zukra-4 * digbala * seeks pleasure via home-based routines * likes the seasonal rhythms of nature * enjoys real-estate finance * attractive gardens * strong feminine presence in the home * aesthetic of domestic stability * pleasing designs to adorn the chest * beautiful breasts * lovely torso * appreciation of owned properties

bandesha-4 in svakshetra = pleasure in the home

Marx notoriously conducted a home-based relationship (Zukra) with his wife's maid, the family housekeeper (4), who bore him a son. 4 contains putra-pati Budha

yuvati-pati-7 spouse-partner + rogesha-6 servants yuti Rahu (taboo breaker)

Also even when supposedly an unkempt revolutionary railing against the privilege of bourgeois society, Marx lived in a nice London home with servants (see below) paid for mainly by his parents (Budha = rules 2nd-from-matribhava-4, parents' cintamani * mani * money) and his wife's trust accounts.

Zukra = yogakaraka bandesha-4 +Dharmesha-9 in svakshetra: Marx had a wide range of experience with Property (4) from academic expertise in a theory of property rights (communism) all the way to holding a mortgage for a comfortable family home in mid-nineteenth-century London

Even when budgets were cramped, he was permitted the luxury (Zukra) of writing in his home office (Zukra).

Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

lagnesha for Kumbha radical lagna

Sashaya Yoga

  • Shani-Kumbha * moolatrikona 0-20 deg * heavy old economic systems * obliged to conform to marketplace rules * pressure to maintain social linkage * structural compression upon skin-nerves-ankles * mandatory electro-magnetic networking * regulated revenues * lawfully distributed earnings * must materialize past-to-future gridwork * must sustain lowest-common-denominator connections * proletarian communities * conventional friendships * elderly mentors * slowly achieves social-material goals * scarce conductive resources
  • Shani in Bhava-1 * steady time-structured personality * mature conduct * must produce under pressure * strictly orderly movement * regimented appearance * grim determination to survive * tense competition * muscular fatigue * required activity drills * chronically impeded self-expression * bodily seizures * identified with heavy responsibility * resists unnecessary change * often looks older * lives to work * elders preserve class-conscious identity.

shani in scientific Kumbha = scientific theorist of social economics = large, rule-driven, complex logical systems (material and social economies).

Shani the Scientific Disciplinarian casts His strongest 3rd drishti upon the Bharani cluster = Rahu+ Chandra + Surya

Sashya Yoga = panchmahapurusha yoga

  • Kumbha rules every variety of network whether conceptual, social, financial, or esoteric.
  • Kumbha rules large-scale social participation movements, goals, and participation in the marketplace.
  • Kumbha whose color is deep brown rules the masses , the hoi-polloi, lateral or proletarian organizations (not hierarchies, rather equal-access networks)

Shani occupies the 2nds pada of Purvabhadra-Pegasus

  • Behari: says "You may get wealth through your spouse where good income is derived . You are tall with a large head and face, inclined to corpulence , bald-headed. You have a clear and practical approach to every work you undertake."

Shani = science + government + networks

Professionally disciplined, scientific, and highly influential philosopher = Shatavisaka radical lagna

The books of Marx + Engels are full of research data taken from the business and government reports of the day

The data is organized appropriately to support the theory of impending working-class revolution and its present a daunting amount of scientific effort by the Marx-Engels team. It was remarkable in their day and still held as a standard for social science writing.

Das Kapital vol. 1 was published in 1867 to wide acclaim amongst Europe's Hegelian-thinking intellectual elite. Marx's pioneering social-science books are still read with great interest more than 150 years after first publication.

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

  • Rahu-Meza-Arya * shimmering illusion of championship * craving for superiority * exotic use of dominating force * mask of competitive action * mirage of first-arrival pioneer * over-reaching urgency * extraordinary birth * extravagant muscularity * mesmerizing forward movement * unusual athleticism * fascinating conquests * marvelous warriorship * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of heroic action * seeks privilege via innovator-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in svabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter = glamorous writing * exotic photography * unusual journalistic reporting * thrilling announcements * unorthodox commentary * mesmerizing messaging * craves publication * ambitious sibling-cousins * mixed-culture collaborative teams * desire for conversations * over-reaching commerce * exciting gestures * opportunistic approach to manufacturing * entranced by information technology * boundary-breeching via unconventional explanations * fascinating evangelism * seeks privilege via management roles
  • Rahu-yuti-Surya * amplified ambition for center-stage roles * magnified confidence * passion for exotic display * trickster with dramatic flair * opportunistic father * creative pursuit of social mobility * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of exceptional intelligence * thrilling political genius * hypnotic charm * seeks privilege via bright celebrity * sparkling center of cross-cultural pollination
  • Rahu-yuti-Somana * amplified emotion * magnified familiarity * exotic habits * tricky routines * opportunistic mother * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking * hypnotic rhythms * emotionally attuned to cross-cultural mixing

Rahu in bhava-3 occupies the Bharani cluster = Rahu+ Chandra + Surya

uttama yuvati-pati-7 Surya + rogesha-6 Chandra + accepts drishti of svakshetra Shani

  • Exotic, provocative (Rahu) confident (Surya) sympathetic to workers (rogesha-6 Chandra) and incendiary (Mesha) writings

Smoking = Rahu-smoke

Marx was said to have been a tremendous and constant smoker of cigars, which owing to his financial insufficiency were of poor quality. He was also an aficionado of spicy food, various oily and fishy delicacies, and liqueurs. Chandra rogesha yuti Rahu tends to amplify the digestive upsets. Kanya = 6th-from-Chandra digestion. He stayed awake most nights writing, smoking, and drinking wine. When his more serious and permanent illness began in 1877, he took the prescribed narcotics to combat constant pain.

Typical of Rahu-ruled Shatavisaka radical lagna, He was said also to be harsh of speech in private setting such as home and with friends (not even Engels escapes his tirades) while invigorating in public conferences.

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

  • Ketu-Thula * justly dissociates from negotiation * wanders away from compromise * eccentric alliances * abandons agreements * apathetic trades * surrenders trust * ignores restriction on match-making * releases a pale pastel cloud of fair deals into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * disinterested in credenda * wandering worldview * disengaged from faith doctrine * disregards theory * liberating philosophy * irrelevance of patriarchal dogma * ambivalence toward conventional convictions * spacey father * weird beliefs * ignores the ordinary understandings * incoherent ideology * unless other graha in 9, may prefer to live free from father-figures

Ketu in classroom-9 * detached witness toward dogma, catechesis
