"a sense of duty is useful in work but offensive in personal relations.

People wish to be liked, not to be endured with patient resignation."

"I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because, like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return."

"To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

"Both in thought and in feeling, even though time be real, to realise the unimportance of time is the gate of wisdom. "

BPL commentary

For Chitra - Tvastri 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 Mangala-ruled paradigm of Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

[Kuja] -ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. As authors, Chaitrika often illustrate their works with fine drawings. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja.

Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Tula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Shukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Shukra-Mangala.

In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. Chaitrika pada 3-4 can be found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, musical instruments, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Chitra-Spica.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] .Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 84

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."



"Freedom in general may be defined as the absence of obstacles to the realization of desires."


"Liberty is the right to do what I like; license, the right to do what you like."

Materialism framing the Paradigm of Beliefs

Shani-Dhanusya-3 occupies the karakamsha

Both Russell and his father were avowed agnostics and Russell eventually declared atheism.


Sparkling Surya activates -11 ++ Mangala activates -2 +++ [Surya-yuti-Rahu] + [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] combines to create a very significant dhanayoga originating in a non-public [8, covered] financial trust which supported the Russell family over the period of several generations.

Although BR was capable of living frugally due to 10th drishti of Shani in Bhava-3 upon Chandra-12, this was more of an expression of his Shani-3 tendency toward depression and materialism, and his Chandra feeling of loss, rather than a harsh social-financial necessity. Shani = a yogakaraka ruler of 4+5, suggesting that quiet but regular minimalistic conditions would tend to improve his teaching foundations and his scholarly productivity.

Due to Kanya-Chandra, Shani activates both 5th-from-Chandra and [6th-from-Chandra] suggesting that Russell's relationship with his children, especially the eldest, was more a responsibility than a delight. His eldest son developed severe mental illness [Schizophrenia] in adulthood. BR's youngest son became a pawn in the contentious hostility between Russell and his third wife.


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

  • [Rahu-Urisha] [uchcha] shimmering illusion of storage * craving for preserved collections * unorthodox banking * over-reaching acquisitions * preposterous accumulations * mesmerizing treasure-hoards * fabulous inventories * exotic food stores * amazing ship-holds * fascinating warehouses * mask of historic conservatism * intriguing acts of barreling * exaggerated cooperage * extravagant containment * tantalizing libraries * marvelous hoards of valuables * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of accrued wealth * entrancing lineage knowledge * thrilling speech-song * excitement of values-fulfillment * seeks privilege via memory keeper-roles
  • [Rahu in bhava-8] passion for prestige mysteries * in svabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks glamorous veiling * surreptitious identity recycling * wizardry of aperture open-close * fascinating self-reinvention * amazing surgical rejuvenation * outsider who cleverly insinuates into revelatory roles * desires an important role in trauma-healing * fabulous transformative initiation * reveals occult truths * shocking discovery of confidential information * exciting mixed-culture secret-keeper * finds opportunity in catastrophe * masquerade of esoteric empowerment * poses as a secretary [secret-keeper] of a powerful entity * risk-rewarding in-laws * irregular inheritance * boundary-breaching disclosure of concealed evidence * intrigue of camouflaged assets * stimulated by dangerous emergencies * disguised as a cradado or shaman * social mobility via mirage of hidden empowerments

  • [Ketu in classroom-2] surrenders preserved values * eccentric voice * odd face * disperses family affluence * disregards conventional limits on sound-music-language * disinterested in genetic lineage * surrenders the hoard * odd food * peculiar precious goods * abdicates banker-conserver-collector roles * dissolves libraries * devalues treasuries * unless other graha in 2, may prefer to live free from historic traditions


Ketu in classroom-2 dissolves the family lineage. Traditional values sucked out through a vacuum.

Collapsing Ketu occupies the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra , suggesting a tendency to be rather abstracted and emotionally apathetic when engaged in the mentalized thought process .BR was a leading expert on logic, which functions properly only in a vacuum created by absence of emotion [Ketu].

[Ketu-Vṛścika] = exceptionally energized = owned by Mangala and receives a Rahu-amplified drishti of Mangala. Unlike most elderly retirees, Professor Russell spent much of his Ketu Mahadasha 1958-1965 performing vigorous environmentalist and anti-war protests.

  • Although famed for his writings, Russell was in his later years a highly visible political figure in the anti-nuclear protest movement. His self-sacrificing activism such as chaining himself to fences and strapping himself to rail lines [that transported nuclear weapons] was widely admired among intellectuals and educated policy makers.
