Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Uttara-azadha 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.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanuzya 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 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 Uttara-azadha.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

A peace loving disposition.

Eager to live and let live.

  • Tolerant to others, giving help where help is required.

A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

  • Such a person makes a good and steady friend,

  • whose friendship is to be valued because it will stand the tests of time and adversity."

SteinerRudolf_midlife.jpgSurya in 7th-from-Chandra shows the scientifically oriented, systematic, willful, elder, and wealth-oriented life-partner-1. Despite her valuable financial subsidies to Steiner's lifestyle, wife-1 remained independent of the squabbling intrigues of Steiner's community.

Many adherents of Steiner's teachings did not acknowledge that Steiner had a first marriage 1899-1911. They recognized only his more public second marriage from 1914.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Simha * comforted by creative display * settled into dramatic rhythms * needs attention
  • Chandra in Purvaphalguni-Yoni * soothed by sparkling luxury * protectors of musical entertainments * needs brilliant beauty
  • Chandra in classroom-8 * comfortable with crisis * familiar with catastrophe * feels the pulse of cyclical rebirth * soothed by secrecy * revolutionary sentiment * accustomed to frequent upheaval * seeks deeply rhythmic initiation * acculturated to exploration * occult sensitivities * needs eruptive energies * nourished by non-disclosure * emotionally attuned to trauma * undulating shakti-shocks

  • Lifepartnership-1 = bhava-2
  • Steiner married twice. His first wife was elder to him (Zukra-Makara). She had been and continued to be his landlady, and also she served as his financial supporter, funding his literary magazine and providing assets such as food (2).

2nd-from 7th-from-Chandra-8

  • Lifepartnership-2 = bhava-9
  • After their 1911 divorce, followed by Eunicke's decease, Steiner remarried in 1914 to a literary colleague, Marie von Sivers
  • After RS's own decease, Mrs. von Sivers-Steiner continued to develop his writings, drawings, and lecture notes, making these philosophical assets available worldwide (9).

Somana-yuti-Shani nishturabhashi yoga in bhava-8 * restrictive, conditional mother who remains largely hidden (8)

Steiner did not involve his mother in his adult life. She was a servant on an estate who flaunted the rules of the lord of the manor when she married Steiner's father. As punishment (Shani) Steiner's young parents were forced to leave their roots and change their identity (8). Clearly such a brilliant world healer would have had a mother with transformative intuitions, but her role necessarily remained veiled

Parental Trauma

Typically, nishturabshi yoga indicates a mother who has been traumatized in her own life and who responds to the child's need for affectionate approval with a harshly punitive, materialistic (Shani) survival fear.

This yoga often signals a forbidding, stiff mother who prioritizes social protocol and public decorum. Mom is generally unable to provide unconditional affection, and the child may receive nurture only by meeting performance standards such as good grades in school, obedient behavior, or achievement of social rank. Having been accused of impropriety, his parents may have been extra-strict to ensure that their fragile dignity would not be violated by anyone ever again, including their children. In his autobiography, RS stated that he spent a frugal childhood in the house with his parents and siblings, existing there but not much participating. He writes extensively about his father's character and kindness. Yet, RS mentions his mother only as the preparer of daily meals.

Bantering Budha in bhava-3 receiving the expansive philosophical drishti of uttama-Guru-7 indicating that what Steiner had to say was abundantly generous as a paradigm of higher belief (Guru). Yet due to nichha-Budha-3 his message is generally not effectively explained and generally not well understood.

Ultimately Steiner is best known for his techniques of non-verbal (astral) communication such as music, images, and dreams' in particular, communication with the deceased and ability to interpret signals emitting from astral conditions (Meena). These signals are non-linear and interpreting them requires a certain gift of autism.

Steiner divorced his first wife in 1911 during Shani-Budha bhukti (Budha rules 6-divorce and 6 contains Ketu). She died soon afterward (Budha rules 12th-from-7th). He conducted a quiet but public widowhood, waiting until a socially respectable mourning bhukti had expired.

Steiner re-married with Ms. von Sievers in 1914 during * Rahu-Zukra bhukti* samchara Rahu-Ketu via Kumbha-Simha contact Chandra-Shani

In 1912 during Rahu-Budha bhukti, Steiner quickly broke relations (6) with the German Theosophical Society, taking a majority of German-speaking adherents with him.

Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner wrote specific governance policy recommendations for reforming culture and creating social legislation. He wrote the popular book Social Renewal during the catastrophic collapse of the German economy after WW-1. The Nazi government However, resented its suggestions and Steiner became a target.

The great majority of Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner's books are transcripts of his lectures which were carefully written, edited, and published by his devotees. Steiner wrote very little himself.

Shani rules 6th-from-Chandra

Rahu occupies 10th navamsha Dhanuzya

inflammatory Rahu drishti into Mangala-4 + Ketu-6 + Shani-Chandra-8

Steiner is often seen as a martyr of the viciously dehumanizing Nazi regime. His opposition to the evils of the Orion (Ayran) empire arose clearly at the beginning of his Rahu Mahadasha age 42 and Steiner persisted in denouncing the evil ones throughout the 18 years of Rahu.

Over-reaching Rahu Dhanushya-12 in 6/8 from risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler is super-expanded via uttama-Guru in bhava-7 and owing to the imbalance from ruler Brihaspati this Rahu is prone to engage in ideological conflict with foreign agents.

The results of Risk-rewarding Rahu's overextension from philosophy (Dhanuzya) into politics (Simha-8) may be philosophically (Guru) beneficial. Yet Rahu Dhanushya in the unbalanced shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from His Professor Guru caused Steiner to take the risk of speaking out against injustice.

By the onset of Guru Mahadasha, his age 60, Steiner had been working against the Orion forces for nearly 20 years and was psychically exhausted (Rahu-12). Only a few years later, his fleshbody expired.

Ketu * * kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversation * incomplete messages * empty instructions * absent from discussion * wandering mentality * fragmented signals * not limited by conventional talk * dialog of liberation * ignores normal business * forgives the sibling-cohort * incoherent scripts * releases a plant-green cloud of explanatory gestures into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial) * ungrounded enemies * disregards criminal boundaries * absentee maternal relatives * dissolves limits on medications * ambivalent toward exploitations * disinterested in disagreement * disregards accusations * ignores the physicians * walks away from sickness * abandons suffering * vacuous conflicts * liberation via surrender of guilt-and-blame * unless other graha in 6, may prefer to live free from mother's relatives

During Rahu-Ketu bhukti in 1913, there was a major schism (Ketu) in the Theosophical Society that caused widespread dispersal of the previously unified European membership. After realizing that the rift (Ketu) cannot be mended, Steiner takes most of the German-speaking members with him into a new Anthroposophy sect (Ketu sectioning, separations).
