Edgar Cayce as a young man in rural Kentucky
" In this we see the plan of development of those individuals set upon this plane,
meaning the ability to enter again into the presence of the Creator
and become a full part of that creation"

For Uttarāṣāḍha births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.
Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic , politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.
Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic Surya. From the Makara indriya-lagna, nakshatra-pati Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral [Shani]. Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet, their purpose is visionary [Surya]. Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. Their emotional stability in partnership arises from Chandra = yuvati-pati.
Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha .

In the electrified portions of the Western hemisphere, the healing information received via Cayce's clairaudient readings set in motion a new medical paradigm.
Yet personally, Cayce was often frustrated with the lack of coherent results from his many schemes and ideas. Observers commented that EC was somewhat impatient and temperamental when not in trance.
Cayce was a simple man from a simple cultural background that valued simple principles of living and tangible results for effort. [Lagnesha Shani]
He embraced the fundamentalist Presbyterian faith of his folk, but came to despair of the legitimacy of the cheerfully oversimplified doctrine he had received. During his clairaudient healing career he suffered much conflict [Shani-Rahu] between his received, folk Christian doctrine vs. The wildly adventurous and barrier-bending, taboo-twisting philosophy emitting from Rahu.
The clairaudiently channeled spiritual worldview that he produced seemed to contradict, indeed insult, the humble biblical orthodoxy with which he was raised  , which he trusted, and which showed the only familiar path toward inner peace.
Yet practically every word of his powerfully intuitive readings revealed a cosmos vastly larger, older, and more complex than the simple version of history offered in his cherished holy book. [Shani-Rahu-Shukra-Budha-Kumbha , cosmos]
Catechized to Cayce as the devil, Lucifer emerged as a radiant being of Light [according to Lucis, named Light] . The greater reality which Cayce was chosen to expose to the common folk indeed did seem anti-religious, and Cayce wanted to recover the security of his childhood as a humble, orthodox believer.
Doctrinally, EC faced a very complex situation.
due to a very complex bhava-2 * knowledge lineage treasuries * that contains rulers of six bhava plus Rahu, EC had much polarizing catalysis to maintain the fundamentalist  scriptural interpretations of his childhood

Via the intuitive readings, and on the basis of his farm-life understanding of remedies [Chandra-4] Cayce was instrumental in the cultural process of reinterpreting the rural American farm tradition of plant-based remedies and food cures.
In addition to subsistence farming in 19th century Kentucky, his father sold insurance [property protection] and his mother taught community Sunday-School . Chandra-4 = mother school teacher.

Cayce was the subject of much argument by conventional medical-men regarding the viability of his channeled cures. Typical of the profession, the doctors were prone to reject the cures not due to a lack of efficacy [the cures worked] but because the mechanism could not be explained.
dharmesha-9 Budha * Beliefs + [Shukra-yuti-Shani] + Rahu
notoriously struggled throughout his life with the conflict between two doctrines. In waking life, he was fully devoted to a culturally embedded fundamentalist protestant Christian doctrine. Yet, in trance, he produced voluminous teachings on higher cosmology and vast historical knowledge which sometimes contradicted the narrower view of his waking catechism.

The healings achieved via the clairaudiently received instructions were documented as effective in most cases where the instructions were followed correctly. Particularly notable cures were recorded in hopeless cases where the patients had been abandoned by their doctors. Yet Cayce's techniques were disparaged by the conventional medical establishment.
