"I served the famous professors and scholars, and eventually they learned that the Reverend Moon is superior to them. Even Nobel laureate academics who thought they were at the center of knowledge are as nothing in front of me." ~~Sun Myung Moon

"Am I foolish and insignificant or am I great? I gave all the individuals in the world cause to kneel down in front of me." ~~Sun Myung Moon

"The time has come when the whole world must be concerned about me. From now on, American Christianity must follow me." ~~Sun Myung Moon

"So from this time of peak every people or every organization that goes against the Unification Church will gradually come down or drastically come down and die. Many people will die - those who go against our movement." ~~Sun Myung Moon

"Let's say there are 500 sons and daughters like you in each state. Then we could control the government." ~~Sun Myung Moon

Masculine Nativities


Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta

BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, 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Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation.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 have equal utility to compassion and 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. 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, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.

mūla] born may suffer from 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

QUOTATION 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."

Although several times Reverend Moon was jailed, he was usually quickly released via attorney-advocate intervention and perhaps some well-timed payments. Shukra activates 6-crimes ++ Shukra activates 7th-from-Chandra attorney, advocacy contains Kuja-yuti-Rahu-11 ambitious associations

Sweet-seeking Shukra-2 activates 6-crime ++ 11-economic webs

Rev. Moon's extensive money net was purportedly involved in financial crimes such as embezzlement and felony misuse of charitable donations . Numerous and large-scale financial misappropriations of church funds were proven, but due to Moon's international scope of operations, it was never determined which country had legal jurisdictions to prosecute the crimes,.

Rogesha Shukra-2 ++ Shukra activates Kuja-yuti-Rahu-11 profits

Moon's financial misdoings, including massive fraudulent use of religious donations to fund a portfolio of privately held family businesses, was never successfully prosecuted because the holdings were disguised [Rahu] under many different names in a network [11] of linkages in several languages [Shukra-2 treasuries, languages]

Fabulous Dhanayoga * Shukra-2 rules Kuja-yuti-Rahu-11 profits

Moonies 1920-2012 Rev. Sun Myung Moon * Moon's official biography claims that he was born into poverty. He died a billionaire, age 92. Obtaining investment capital via religious donations of cash and labor, and thus avoiding both loan interest and taxes, he developed an international web of profitable businesses.

Sharing Shukra-2 * assets to Family Members

Similar to other churches which use tax-free donations to purchase business assets, it was primarily a commercial operation. The Unification Church did maintain charitable and educational arms, including a hospital and the University of Bridgeport, CT. The notable distinction between Moon's church and other similar setups such as Roman-rite Catholic and LDS is that, upon Moon's decease, the corporate assets were not inherited by the Church. Rather, the businesses bought by the church were transferred to Moon's family members [Shukra-2] .

Since the death of the founder in 2012, Moon's children have declared that they will not accept the mantle of religious leadership. Rather, they may continue to develop the family treasuries using the assets provided by their capitalist father for ongoing family use. Ketu-5 disengaged children.
