BPL commentary

For Dhaniṣṭha births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Dhaniṣṭha-born often respond to a deep inner fear [Shani] which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition [Kuja]. The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-directed and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Dhaniṣṭha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Like genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. When Dhaniṣṭha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and dominated by men.

Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic, competitive movement. These men thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniṣṭha are determined to win the contest, at any cost.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-lands-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.

Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala. Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

Themes of band-of-brothers, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniṣṭha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniṣṭha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."


Louis Pasteur in approximately 1860 (LP age circa 40)


Louis Pasteur elder years * Archives Photographiques, Paris


A complex figure, similar to Thomas Edison.

A cut-throat competitor from a harsh background, Pasteur used others' experimental data without attribution. So as to protect his reputation as a Great Scientist (similar to Edison's contrived reputation as a Great Inventor) the Pasteur Family Financial Trust ensured that LP's scientific notebooks remained sealed (12) for several future generations,

When a descendant who inherited the revered Notebooks decided to publish their contents, the shocking truth was revealed. Much of Pasteur's data and method was appropriated from his competitors and colleagues who were simultaneously working on the same scientific problems.

Like Edison, Louis Pasteur had an exceptionally competitive personality. Like most men of his era, Pasteur subscribed to the belief that the overarching goal of life was attainment of wealth and power via any available means to this end.

Publication of the Notebooks reduced Pasteur's international reputation quite dramatically. However, LP's original goal, to bring wealth and power to himself and his family, was achieved and maintained for several generations. From his own viewpoint, his life would be judged a huge success. From a scientific ethical perspective, though, not so much.

Academic skill-duggery

Pasteur enjoyed a socially powerful yet personally challenging double parivartamsha yoga.

[uchcha] Kuja-yuti-Rahu was involved in a parivartamsha between Shani-3 [nīcha] (publications) ++ Kuja-12 [uchcha] (research) ++++ while Kuja-Shani also endure mutual drishti.

extreme tensions in the personality.

Pasteur's most extraordinary scientific discoveries were accomplished during Shani Mahadasha.

Shani-[nīcha] 3 = also amplified by the strength of [uchcha] Kuja-Rahu. Shani bhukti tend to be brutally difficult, producing numerous events of cerebral hemorrhage, paralysis, and catastrophic results to his family.


The remarkable exchange * Shukra-11 (funding) parivartamsha Guru-4 (teaching positions) = LP's great success in obtainment of financial support for his research projects.

Despite his lack of enthusiasm for academics, LP enjoyed a series of well-funded teaching jobs that provided the salary (11), scientific equipment, and labor for his decades-long experimentations. Ultimately his work was fully funded through the endowments of the academic entity Pasteur Institute.

Madame Pasteur was the lifelong laboratory and fieldwork assistant to her husband. Her contribution to his research in vaccines and food sterilization process went unrecognized for more than a century. LP's intensively privatizing [uchcha] Kuja-yuti-Rahu-12 kept the truth hidden for a century.

Yet, after the opening of his secret notebooks in the 1990's, it became clear that Marie Laurent, the highly literate daughter of a university rector, had written all documents and personally directed the field experiments for rabies and anthrax. bhava-11 mate = friend, facilitator of gains, key to success

Excruciating Tension = [nīcha] Shani-3 mutual drishti [uchcha] 12-Mangala-Rahu

dominating Mangala ++ over-reaching Rahu

LP displayed a fierce determination and toughness of ambition to overcome all obstacles.

He approached the target of scientific discovery with the competitive zeal of a warrior-athlete. Rahu with the driven Mangala [uchcha] pushes toward privilege whatever it takes, in defiance of ethical limitations

Misappropriation of methods and conclusions, credit taken from others' work [Rahu]

This Shani-vs-Kuja push-pull tension = likely to be the source of LP's sadly immoral decision to misrepresent his development of the anthrax vaccine as his own personal innovation.

Long sealed by his guarding family in a crypt at the Pasteur Institute, LP's notebooks eventually revealed that LP had misappropriated both the methods and the research conclusions of several fellow scientists.

It is now widely acknowledged that LP falsely claimed [Rahu] to have pioneered [Kuja] several stunning microbiology discoveries which led directly to food-handling bacteria eradication methods and to medical vaccines.

Sadly, it is now clear that LP was taking credit for decades of collaborative work by a cohort of elite fellow scientists within the French Academy of Sciences. These researchers were all tackling the same urgent disease problems from the new perspective of Germ Theory.

In historical hindsight, it is now seen that LP's discoveries were taken without attribution from professional discussions conducted by the best scientists of his generation who were sharing their research data, methods, and tentative conclusions.

LP appears to have been an energetic but ruthless narcissist.

Budha Mahadasha * age 55.5 until age 72.5

The Mahadasha of Budha began with 1879's first successful vaccine.

Building on the tremendous scientific accomplishments of the Shani Mahadasha, LP embarked on a program of continued inquiry into the microbiology of disease and production of the medical technology [Budha] of vaccines, along with explanation [Budha] of the procedures [Budha] necessary to manage [Budha] sterile environments.

His work was ever-more admired as treatments for rabies, wine disease, silkworm disease, anthrax, and ruined milk (inter alia) were attributed to LP's endless genius.

Mahadasha of the randhresha is likely to have a downside

For LP it was camouflaged activities. In the case of rabies, LP might have been prosecuted for treating patients illicitly since he was not a licensed physician.

Yet, the success of the rabies vaccine was very greatly welcomed Budha-yuti-Shukra yogakaraka.

Improper testing of the sample vaccines on humans was overlooked (8). Other misdoings also occurred but LP's fame Budha-yuti-Surya over-shone his unprofessional behavior and academic crimes.

Sadly, narcissistic LP was such a champion of vaccination by this era that he was able to use the methods and results of colleagues' research, reporting others' work as his own Budha-yuti-Surya.

Because of his heroic reputation, LP's under-the-radar (8) misdoings were never chastised.. He also ensured that the scientific records showing his misappropriations of data, method, and result would never be revealed (8 nondisclosure). Indeed, the damning notebooks remained sealed for more than a century.

Long, long after his death, the exposure of his flawed behavior finally ruined LP's saintly status in the scientific world

LP's information-stealing was most pernicious during LP's [Mūla] Budha-Mahadasha, his age 55-72. Budha activates methods, process, publications, NOTEBOOKS.

Substantial and unusual research stipends were provided by those teaching positions (11). Exceptional support from wife Guru-4 parivartamsha Shukra-11and from wife's father Shukra-yuti-Surya
