Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Mūla - Vichruta

Nirriti - Alaxmi


For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.

Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness . Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.

Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, nairriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.

In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.

Mūla's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom.

Yet, the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos may better suit Ketu's purpose than compassion, understanding, or human love.

Because Alakshmi-born preach their principles while dismissing [Ketu] the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.

When involved in religious or political indoctrination, [Mūla] born may expound an eschatology of annihilation. Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration.

Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having usually no fear of death, mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others - often on a large scale [Guru]. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission.

Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military orders, priesthoods, politics, and organized crime.

Mūla-born health may be affected by restless windiness (vata dosha).

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla


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

" ... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable ."

Institutes 1509-1564 theology John Calvin suffered the death of his wife after nine years of marriage. After her decease, JC praised his wife's character However, despite needing a caretaker for his numerous health problems and to provide better conditions for his writing, he did not remarry during the remaining 15 years of his life. His mother had died when he was young and his father remarried. JC's attachment to the mother's family was weak. Chandra-6 exacerbates the instability of Chandra. Calvin's life has been intensively studied, Yet, the year of mother's death and details of her character remain elusive. [Chandra randhresha]

[Guru in bhava-12]

Institutes 1509-1564 Theology John Calvin [Shani in Bhava-12] occupies 6th-from-Chandra. Calvin was ill with various maladies throughout his 54-year lifespan. The chronic animosity of his theological adversaries is legendary. Yet, it was not slavery, penalties, or debts which killed him, but rather the consequences of overwork.

Institutes 1509-1564 theology John Calvin endured the death of his mother when he was still a boy [likely about age 10] . His lifetime featured chronic illnesses and persistent animosity from the social order, as indicated not only by Shani-Kanya in [6th-from-Chandra] .

He generated a huge wave of controversy with his teachings upon the structure of heaven and the theme of scarcity [10th-from-Chandra Makara and Shani-1] . His views incited violence among the warring [6] believers, and most government officials wanted to keep him in the gaol [6] . However, some Swiss officials [Makara] with commercial interests saw the potential of making Calvinism the State Religion. Calvin's dogma that material wealth was proof of Divine Favor suited their agenda perfectly. He lived to age 63 and changed the course of Western history, when later English Calvinists escaping persecution helped to found Euro-America. But his daily life was subject to accusatory litigation, often physically dangerous, and psycho-emotionally rugged. [Also, chandra-8.]

Idelette de Bure Stordeur Calvin [1500-1549]

After her death, his Belgian companion and caretaker Idelette was praised by John Calvin as a sustainer, and a protector [Shukra-Karkata]

His marriage to a theologically intelligent [Surya dharmesha] sheltering spouse was said to have provided JC with precious protection. Not incidentally, idelette brought capital into the union, abequest of her earlier husband's assets [8, assets of marriage].

Marriage allowed him to work all day every day, while the partner met his foundational needs.

(JC age 31) Aug-1540 married the Belgian widow Idelette de Bure. She brought an inheritance [8] from her previous husband and was known for her discretion [8]

Idelette cared for JC's needs, helped him write [Budha] and maintained his self-confidence [Surya] in times of immense stress.

Johan and Idelette were married for nine years. She brought two children and a small capital estate into the union. They produced three additional children who all died in infancy.

Calvin spoke of Idelette's caretaking [Shukra-Karkata] with deep appreciation and warmth. Upon her untimely death, his grief was severe and he never officially remarried. [8 parental caretaking during violent transformations]

Partnerships avowed and otherwise

Shukra + Surya + Budha [8] would suggest three wives.

a university-trained attorney, calvin dedicated his life to legal-theological wrangling with the established Roman Church [Karkata].

The Protestant Reformation in western Europe in the 1500's was an era of violent persecution for heresy, and continuous social upheaval caused inter alia by the rise of mercantilism, nationalism and suddenly widespread literacy due to the new printing press [Mangala-Mithuna] .

JC led a refugee sangha of Protesting Christians who were in constant danger of torture and death from their theological competitors in the Roman-Rite hierarchy .

Despite the ongoing attacks from the taxing priesthood of the Church of Rome [Shani-10 government intakes drishti of Kuja-7 legal code] the refugee protestors [Protestants] quickly realized higher profits [11] when freed from the taxes and tithes of the older religious hierarchy.

JC generated a significant transformation [Vrischika] of western European society.

Calvin' is famed for his stringent doctrines and his enthusiasm for using hideous violence to impose them on all citizens, whether believers or not [nicha-Guru-navamsha].

His era of history was shocked by unexpected eruptions of force. As the Roman-Rite hegemony began to crumble after 1200 years of power, the uprising of new doctrines penetrated all levels of human experience for nearly all members of the social order.

Supercharged Guru empowers JC's identity and his schooling while churning up the vyaya-sthana, not much aiding his personal emotional peace. He led an intense fantasy life which in modern terms would be judged as a Paranoid Personality disorder. However in his own disruptive and fearful era, fanatics blossomed and hysteria prevailed..

Institutes 1509-1564 theology John Calvin was intensely intellectually identified [Guru lagnesha] with his theological and theocratic work. He was both paranoid and persecuted [12].

JC's doctrine caused him to be banished, hunted, jailed, and forced into exile [12]. When he finally got commanding power as a dictator in Geneva [Shani-10], this hyper-passionate identification with his dogma also provoked his commands to the torture and murder - usually by burning at the stake - hundreds of heretics and accused witches.

JC had a wild imagination [12],

Yet, his extreme teachings responded to the widespread hysteria of an emerging, volatile era in which the old ways of knowing God were crumbling and many people felt lost [keynote of Mula]
