Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social order.

The Listener * Shaman

Shravishta gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Sravana are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.

As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law. In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet, being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.

Shravana-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Shravana can be singers and musicians. Sravistha gentlemen are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing. When the occasion calls for careful listening to the beat of the music, their steps may be practiced and elegant.

Measured, appropriate tone

Shravana must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law. While public dignity remains important, Sravana fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow (Chandra) of the ethnicity or the nation. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.

Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.

"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,

  • particularly to those less fortunate than himself.

This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life

  • without injuring anyone else to do so.

He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.

  • The extent of his activities in this direction,

  • will of course depend on his station in life.

Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.

He will also be very religious

  • and will participate in church activities

  • if his environment permits."

CAREER * 10th-from-Chandra

liberal progressive Guru-Kumbha-2 in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

bhava-2 facilitates talking, speeches, inquiry into traditional values. Kumbha = futurism, theory, social networks, science

RW was considered by those whom he upset to be a force of disruptive innovation and sudden, unexpected threat to the established order. As the international leader of the Anglican hierarchy and its mainly elderly worshippers, RW served as a voice of intelligence, creativity, and nobility of spirit (Surya) which came to loggerheads with the stony, Shani-ruled mega-structure of the established Church. His own Shani-8 prevented a revolutionary schism within the faith communion, which was provoked by his His departure from executive roles was welcomed as a sign of "return to normal" by the aging, conservative faithful.


Mom = Nancy Delphine Morris Williams

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-5 = bhava-11 community activism, social progressive linkage

  • Since 1981, RW has been married to the theologian and liturgical writer Jane Paul. They have two children.
  • bhava-11 = community activism, social connections, attainment of goals, material achievement, fundraising

Lifepartner as catalyst

  • Via the Kuja-ruled marriage partnership (11) RW who is a basically conservative Zravana personality has been thrust (Kuja) into the vanguard of transformative (Vrischika) liberal progressive social participation networks (11).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka (brother) * virya-karaka (virile)

  • Mangala-Kanya * penetrating logic * proactive helping * thrust toward service * energetic assistance to the needy * pushy complaints * (potentially) vindictive * champion of litigious accusation * military planning * aggressive indictments * investigative journalism * medical treatment interventions
  • Mangala in bhava-9 * drive toward doctrine * champion of paradigmatic belief * pursuit of patronage * dynamic preaching * philosophy of conquest * aggressive or sexualized paternal energies * dominating military father-figures * growth-challenging paternal behavior

Kuja-yuti-Ketu -9 theology = occupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Mangala in bhava-9 * dhana-yoga * Vriddhi-pati-11 in 11th-from-11th * earnings from vigor and competition

Budha * jamayah-karaka (sibling) * sandeza-karaka (message) * zisya-karaka (student)

  • Budha-Urisha * financial communications * articulation of tonal value * talks about stored goods * discusses collected assets * delivers descriptive evaluations * sends historic messages * skillfully signals the music * preservation methods * describes sound frequencies * hands-arms-shoulders send sensual gestures
  • Budha in bhava-5 * narrative of splendid signaling * discusses entitlements * self-referential conversations * describer of divine intelligence * explainer of romance * delivers political instructions * writes poetry * proclaims love * defines creative literature * plays games * discusses fame * lectures about idealism * debates with royalty * chats with children * publishes unique opinions * articulator of artistic performance * declaims with radiant confidence
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * amusing explanations * entertaining chatter * central roles in communication * brightly clear descriptions * dramatic enunciation * confidently delivers instruction * articulation of radiant certainty * political messenger * talkative father-figures
  • Budha-yuti-Chandra * explainer of feelings * mentalized caretaking * communicative parenting * familiar rhythmic phrasing * ancestral instruction * writes sensitive speeches + songs * soothed by scheduling * needs to plan * describes the comfortable routines * responsive siblings * intuitively talkative mother

Budha-5 celebrity rules 9-ecclesiastics

Bantering Budha rules Mithunaya-Puna Svamsha

Blustering Budha rules Karakamsha = bhava-9 containing Mangala-yuti-Ketu. Williams is acknowledged as a gifted but not easily understood Writer on often abstruse theological, theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual topics (Ketu arcane, abstruse) .

Budha rogesha occupies 12th-from-6

RW s= a prominent exponent (Budha) of social justice and inclusion for historically marginalized persons such as LBGTQ+ (6). RW championed the cause of women's eligibility to serve as Anglican bishops. Yet, in most of RW's campaigns for equity and fair handling, he lost the case. Rogapathi Budha-5 in 12th-from-6th reduces harm to him personally, but also weakens the empowerment to successfully advocate for the disadvantaged classes

Guru * dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)

  • Guru-Kumbha * much networking * many marketplaces * optimistic about big associations * permission to connect * scientific beliefs * doctrine of economic linkage * distributed guidance * expands the scope of social participation * multiple communities * diversity of friendships
  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard * many songs * many stories * extensive history * generous reserves * several genetic lines * many accumulated goods * numerous languages * expansive eyes * many voices * many valuations * extensive accounts * grows the family lineage * optimistic heritage * believes in historic conservation * patron of speech-and-song * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be a keeper-collector-preserver

Guru = kharesha

Brihaspati rules Meena 10th navamsha

Benevolent Brihaspati receives a conservative, restraining, fearful drishti from Shani-Simha-8.

Generous Guiding Guru occupies the career-defining, emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = philosophy, theory, humanistic teaching career

Zukra * svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wife) Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-Meza * appreciation of direct movement * likes innovation * aesthetic of physicality * attracted to champions * pleasures of conquest * kinetic sensuality * prefers a lithely sporting partner * sweetly competitive * aristocratic agreements
  • Zukra-4 * digbala * seeks pleasure via home-based routines * likes the seasonal rhythms of nature * enjoys real-estate finance * attractive gardens * strong feminine presence in the home * aesthetic of domestic stability * pleasing designs to adorn the chest * beautiful breasts * lovely torso * appreciation of owned properties

Zukra-4 occupies the contemplative, imaginative, prayerful 12th-from-Chandra

Kalatrakaraka Zukra representing the Value of Women rules 6th-from-Chandra * emotional conflict from and about women, sexual relationships, finance, and values traditions.

RW faced surprisingly contentious accusations (6) and bitter criticism (6) for supporting committed same-sex unions within the Church. He championed the cause of ordained women priests serving as Anglican bishops, but due to virulent criticism (6) of this initiative, the Anglican Church lost access to much-needed feminine leadership.

Shani * duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

lagnesha for Makara-Draco radical lagna

  • Shani-Simbha (challenging placement) * heavy old legacy drama * must accept center-stage pressures * structural compression upon heart-spine * conventional limits upon creative self-expression * tightly governed speculation * social restrictions upon personal genius *must be responsible in romance * no time for frivolous drama * fearful in games * time-conscious children * resents royal entitlements * proletarian entertainments * restricted intelligence * slow, elderly politicians * restrained entitlement * obligatory ceremonies * scarcity of amusements
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * steady time-structured transformations * must impose order upon dangerous environments * may fear the advance of inexorable change * must regenerate while maintaining the system * cautiously conventional initiations * tense renewals * resists surgery * fear of eruptions * chronic trauma patterns * pressures on the hidden mechanisms of sexual-reproduction * fears revelation of mysteries * pushback against emerging new cycles * disaster fatigue * martial law * dry rigidity limits rejuvenation * frugal in-laws * elders preserve undisclosed assets

Shani in Bhava-8 * initiating a laborious movement toward institutional change * one step forward, two steps back

RW proposed numerous rebirth, rejuvenation, and modernization enhancement to the official doctrine of the Anglican Church. RW's carefully legal (Makara) examination of the precedents and policies which structure the corporate hierarchy of the Church. Due to his Shani-8 which internally resists forward-moving change, RW was unable to effect these improvements. Nevertheless, via lagnesha Shani, RW created an iconic personality symbolizing the institutionally slow (Shani) pace of changes to deeply embedded structures. The first phase of the inevitable changes was naturally an apparent failure because it is Shani's duty to resist survival-threatening movement. The first volley will likely be reframed as a success when seen from the longer perspective of institutional evolution.

yogakaraka from Chandra-Urisha lagna rules 9+10

Shani-Simha-8 indicating a survival fear of politics ++ fear of unregulated change occupies the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra suggesting a stable, conventional, scarcity oriented home and government schools

Shani-8 drishti upon 10-career manifested the highly empowered promotion to Archbishop of Canterbury during Shani-Shani svabhukti.

Shanri-8 drishti also into bhava-2 historical values, languages, song ++ bhava-5 politics, creative gamesmanship

Shani-8 = resistance to change

Shani-8 provided enough contact with the established hierarchy to retain his authority. Yet, his tenure in the authority topper role was beleaguered by resistance to change (Shani-8) and social fear of nonconformity (Shani-Simha).

His work on social-economic participation within the communion of believers will be judged to have been successful in retrospect albeit necessarily glacially slow (Shani).

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Meena * shimmering illusion of immersion * craving for symbolic guidance * extravagant imagination * mirage of dreamlike wisdom * mesmerizing aura of concealing fog * mask of Other-Worldly wisdom * fascinating prayers * extraordinary ancestor guides * fabulous clairsentience * intriguing sleep-states * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of deep trance * exceptional private intuition * unorthodox interior guidance * seeks privilege via contemplative-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in svabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter = glamorous writing * exotic photography * unusual journalistic reporting * thrilling announcements * unorthodox commentary * mesmerizing messaging * craves publication * ambitious sibling-cousins * mixed-culture collaborative teams * desire for conversations * over-reaching commerce * exciting gestures * opportunistic approach to manufacturing * entranced by information technology * boundary-breeching via unconventional explanations * fascinating evangelism * seeks privilege via management roles

Passion for contemplative community

Rahu-Meena contemplation, imagination ** occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

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

  • Ketu-Kanya * humbly dissociates from accusatory complaints * incomplete service * empty disagreements * odd arguments * not limited by stigmatized conditions * ignores restriction on helpfulness * eccentric service to the disadvantaged * releases a living green cloud of servitude into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * disinterested in credenda * wandering worldview * disengaged from faith doctrine * disregards theory * liberating philosophy * irrelevance of patriarchal dogma * ambivalence toward conventional convictions * spacey father * weird beliefs * ignores the ordinary understandings * incoherent ideology * unless other graha in 9, may prefer to live free from father-figures
  • Ketu-yuti-Kuja * restless * surrendered championship * abandons fighting * inconsistent actions * disconnected brethren * odd innovations * unsustainable domination * apathetic competitions * peculiar disability * unfulfilled quest * pushes toward impermanence * incomplete births * liberation via vigorous movement

Occupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Although theologically (9) Williams has been mainly an academic investigator into problematics due to critical, reportage Kanya-Mangala, may be expected to produce more edgy theological writing after retirement from public office due to dogma-dissolving Ketu in classroom-9
