born on day-4 Chaturthi of Sukla Paksha

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman

Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram


BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni 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 Uttora, 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.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.


Brilliantly dramatic

Simha - Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83


"a proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

GrahamBilly_195x.jpg

Billy Graham 1950's, Hollywood California


Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham = Shani rules-9 occupies 8th-from-9th. Graham preached a message that American-ism = Christiani-sm, thus mixing the historic distinction between Church and State. It was legal to preach this principle, but not legal to enact laws on this principle. This he formed expedient partnerships (Rahu-7) to promote the agenda of morality legislation such as that wanted by his financial supporter, Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst

Hour of Decision 1918-2018 Rev. Billy Graham * Ketu-Vrishabha (speech-values) * Graham dealt steadily and patiently with racial bigotry in Protesting Christian worship settings, declaring a culture of acceptance and inclusion and on one occasion providing bail for USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King. Yet Graham also politicked to defeat POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy because Kennedy practiced Roman-rite Catholicism, and Graham also expressed some bitterly anti-Semitic beliefs during his fateful taped conversations with POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon.

Rescue of failing Crusades by Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst

In early1949 during Surya-Budha bhukti * Budha-yuti-Rahu-2 speech, Rev. William "Billy" Graham's Los Angeles Crusade was playing to an empty house. The audience had dwindled, expenses could not be paid, and the operators were going to shut down the failed revival meetings.

Suddenly (Rahu) he saw the flashing of camera lights as the aisles filled with newspaper reporters (Budha).

The billionaire plutocrat, pro-fascist, and virulent anti-Communist media magnate Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst had heard Graham speak. W.R. Hearst had commanded battalions of newspaper and radio journalists to vigorously promote Graham's anti-Communist Crusade. Their salaries were paid by Hearst.

Although most religious leaders in the USA were careful to respect the legal distinction between church and state, Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst was a fascist for whom there were no such protections since "all was bound together".

Fascisti do not respect legal distinctions, Rather, they seek a mandatory, centralized, uniform power. Hearst wanted to see more binding between politics and religion within Euro-American culture, and in Graham he found an excellent tool.

Follow the Funding

For Hearst, more Christianity meant less Communism. During the final two years of Hearst's life, Hearst significantly funded Graham's ministry . Graham's preaching ever afterward reflected the nichha-Surya willingness to say what the cintamani * mani * money (combust Zukra) required him to say.

Feminine Nativities

Visaka * Radha

Indra-agni * Aindra-agna * Zkragni * Satragni * Sadvhava * Vaikaasi * Vaigasi * Visagaam


BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, 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.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.


Growth Shocks

Thula - Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 may be experts on the subject of relationships, both seen and unseen. They have a broad understanding of the power of polarities. They are often found in advising and recommending roles (Zukra) which engage ideology or theory (Guru) such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Thula-Visaka, the husband may also be impoverished or ailing (due to Guru rules 3-6 from Thula).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-treasury, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic action. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 ladies are often found in teaching and healing work, especially when using their expertise with the sexual-reproductive energies.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic Shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka-Radha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.


"... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character, even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-6

Typically, the lifepartner hails from a distant land. RBG was born in China, educated in China-Korea, and she arrived in the USA age 19. BG was born, raised, and educated in North Carolina, USA.

The early years of marriage produced five children, as BG restlessly sought a right ministry. With a thrilling and engaging voice (RBG Kuja rules 2-speech) BG started in radio and expanded to television and print media.

Mangala in bhava-12 is a complicating factor in the union. Mangala yuvathipathi rules 7 occupies 6th-from-7th.
