For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, 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.
Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.
High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.
Instructing, Explaining, Describing
[Mithunaya-Dvamdva] pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.
[Karkata-Kadaga] -pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.
Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing [due to Brihaspati activates 6] .
Themes of restoration of lost knowledge , gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde  Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81
" ... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

Watts was a cultural diplomat.
In the days of state-paid churches and conformism to one-true-faith, AW's special subject was the outrageously titled "comparative religion" = Rahu-yuti-Guru-9.
His listeners were predominantly English-educated, English-reading, and English-listening. As Anglosphere civilians began to attempt more touring travel to East Asian historic destinations, AW added intellectual interpretations to their growing fascination with all things ancient and Asian.
In the style of a radio professor, the priest AW introduced the key concepts structuring [Shani-1] traditional Asian religious practices. He explained basic elements of culture, philosophy, and ritual to an audience that was previously almost entirely unfamiliar with the subject.
AW wrote dozens of philosophical books + delivered hundreds of radio talks. in the 1960's-70's, Watts' visage from book covers became synonymous with the new Western interpretations of Japanese Zen Buddhism [Rahu-9 foreign beliefs] and its instruction to learn to perceive that nothing is inherently real [Ketu-3 instructions] .
= publications on non-reality, announcements, radio, publications on topics of dissolution, disorientation, . One of AW's most successful titles, published during the Cold-War era of obsession with security, was The Wisdom of Insecurity.
|"and now my friends,
all that is true, all that is noble,
all that is just and pure,
all that is loveable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and admirable -
fill all your thoughts with these things."
