BIRTH AND DEATH DATA: Source Dennis Flaherty February 8, 1925 11:25am LMT Chapra India * decease : July 23, 2005 at his home in New Delhi, India
Agneya - Riksya - Karthika - Alcyone
For Krittika 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 splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, 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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.
Agneya-born gentlemen are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Natural dramatists, Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and self-directed seekers of attention.
Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of Champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius. Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures.
[Vrishabha - Urisha] -pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Shukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatra-pati Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of banking and finance, natural resource conservation, music, wines and perfumes, arts, and beauty. Depending on [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward government positions.
Themes of self-importance, individual entitlement, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Kṛttikā - Pleyades

[managing-collaborative Aśvini-3] [mūlatrikoṇa] [navamsha Mangala-Mithuna]
OUTCOMES - MANGALA
both D-9 navamsha + D-10 dashamamsha -10 have Kuja in Mithuna
Kuja in Mithuna in D-9 = karaka for astrological activities due to Mangala's energy expressing via explanations, descriptions, instructions, diagrams , communications oral and written, transmission of information, media messages, conferences, seminars, trainings.
Only in retirement from government career during Kuja mahadasha, did Behari enjoy the "leisure" to begin editing his writings to make them less obscure (as much as possible in any case considering Budha-yuti-Ketu ). In Kuja mahadasha he was energized to negotiate with foreign publishers, and to write new materials, which made his Jyotisha viewpoint internationally known.
Competitive Kuja is not a leisurely graha. Mangala = energized. Despite his advancing age, BB was vigorously active during the mahadasha of Mangala, producing some of his best Jyotisha work during the final years of the incarnation.
Kuja can do this demanding material and spiritual work due to power of
Relationship between Guru Dharmesha-9 and Kuja lagnesha-1 generates Mangala's dynamic power to produce some potent Jyotisha works even after a long and demanding career in public service. At the end of a 40-year service career, most people would have stopped producing books and enjoyed a leisurely retirement. BB continued writing Jyotisha books until the day of his death.
According to the effect of Rahu-Ketu engaging Chandra, Shukra, Surya and especially Budha, Shri BB does things his own way at all times.
He does not kowtow to conventionalist piety in his Jyotisha interpretations. Due to his personal integrity arising from strengths of Shani, Guru, and Kuja, there was no need to seek social safety by pandering to the pundits.

OUTCOMES - BRIHASPATI
[Guru in bhava-9] international, theoretical, broad-worldview engaged in philosophical teaching, patronage, patriarchal dogmatics
BB's spiritual perspective is guided by distinctively theosophist theoretical interpretive principles
BB draws deeply from this logically argued framework of belief in his presentation of the gridworked principles of esoteric Jyotishavidya.
For some, BB's theosophical interpretive framework is constricting or even offensive to local traditions (9 = 5th-from-4th). For other readers, the theosophical perspective is liberating from local customs and superstitious accrued beliefs. BB's writings are often deeply reflective, often struggling for clear expression, praiseworthy for the effort and sometimes shockingly insightful.
BB's economics publications appear to have faded into academic history, but his writings in Jyotishavidya continue to inspire controversy, confusion, appreciation, and debate.
svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wifely companion)
[acquisitive-preserving dhanesha for Mesha indriya-lagna]
[balancing-bargaining jaya-pati for Mesha indriya-lagna]

QUOTATION from Behari, Planets in Signs and Houses
dhanapati-2 + yuvati-pati-7 Shukra-Makara-Draco in bhava-10
" Personal comforts are taken away you give these up in order to realize your mission in life. You have tremendous sensitivity, which allows you to establish an immediate rapport with others , but this same quality also makes you suffer emotionally because you sympathize with the masses. You may also display extraordinary skill in the creative arts ."
duro-karaka (endurance) *jara-karaka [Jahre, years]
[dutiful-hierarchical karmesha for Mesha indriya-lagna]
[friendly-gainful labha-pati for Mesha indriya-lagna]
[graciously dutiful, persistently orderly, mature, unyielding, stubbornly justice-imposing, gainful, networking life partner]
[pioneering-inventive Viśākha-1] [navamsha Shani-Mesha-nicha]
[Shani-7 parivartamsha Shukra-10]
permanent tension via Shani mutual drishti Mangala
OUTCOMES - SHANI
parivartamsha yoga of Shukra-Makara-Uttarāṣāḍha (psychic) -10 with [dikbala] Viśākha-Tula-Shani-7 = BB's extraordinary dual career. His productive expertise spanned two demanding professions: traditional Jyotishavidya, international diplomacy, and industrial development economics.
Primarily an applied economist (uttama Shani-7 activates 11-economic systems) BB was educated at both Patna University and the University of London. He retired from formal service at the level of diplomat of the government of India.
While simultaneously holding administrative, advising, and executive roles of substantial importance, during the period of India's mid-century industrialization, BB also maintained a scholarly practice in Jyotishavidya.
The work ethic = Shani stamina + Budha verbosity + Ketu psychic awareness
[Budha-yuti-Ketu ] [Budha-yuti-Shukra] [Budha-yuti-Surya] = all in the professionalized karma-sthāna.
Karma-pati-10 [uchcha] Shani public leadership, very much strengthened in kendra-7, suggests very strong leadership roles in government or large corporate hierarchies.
Shani-vs-Kuja, Ketu in 10 + rogesha-6 Budha in 10
Bhava-10 accepts drishti of Rahu and AśleṣaChandra. The total picture is a highly visible distinguished governance career. But, as Behari points out, certain contradictions between the individually positive influences do generate some personal frustration.
rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)

[Rahu-4 casts passionately property-owning habitual drishti into 8-10-12]
check Chandra for defining source of Rahu's rhythmic entrancement
[governing-hierarchical Aśleṣā-2] [navamsha Rahu-Makara]
OUTCOMES - RAHU
Rahu Mahadasha age 65-79
Rahu Mahadasha brought accolades for valuable cultural-education (4, Chandra) and"roots " proliferation work . Most of the praise came from foreigners (Rahu, mixing) who expressed gratitude for his choice to write in English thereby making his views accessible to a worldwide English-reading audience.
Death in Rahu-Chandra bhukti . Soma bandesha-4 = "the end of things ". Behari abandoned his aging body only a few months after his beloved life-partner's decease.
kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
[for Mesha indriya-lagna]
[dispersed engagement with official leadership]
[dissolution of commanding hierarchical positions]
[restlessly anarchic toward high-ranking regulatory roles]
[may abdicate a top director-level position]
[surrenders useless organizational authority]
[apatheticly forgives the trespass of executive pontificators legislators]
[abandons unsustainable statutes]
[absent from imposition of empty state-regulated standards]
[disregards respected bureaucratic conventions]
[widely-known eccentric conduct may symbolize dematerialization of the regime ] [reputation for erratic governance]
[has the principled faith and the status, but walks away from public empowerments]
[passively fixated on ambitiously protective-defensive Rahu-Karkata-4 parents, householders, property-owners, gardeners, stewards of Earth]
[customary-ritualized Śrāvaṇa-4] [navamsha Ketu-Karkata]
Planets in Signs and Houses - Ketu in classroom-10 profession, public authority
"You are an idealist, though an unhappy one, uninterested in life."
OUTCOMES - KETU
[Ketu in classroom-10] brings esoteric perspectives [Ketu] into high-visibility public roles (10)
BB undertook to Explain the fundamentals of Jyotishavidya [Ketu] to a conventionally, academically minded international audience
Possessed of international cultural fluency along with acadenuc training in western social sciences, BB was able to translate esoteric concepts of an older Indic civilization into modern social-psychological vocabulary. BB published primarily in English. Thus his Jyotishavidya viewpoint became accessible and distributed widely to the post-WorldWar-2, English-reading generations.
BB published more than a dozen English-language books in Jyotishavidya, most of which are still in print and highly valued. Esoteric Astrology is widely considered to be the magnum opus of the writing team, Bepin and Madhuri Behari.
Distinctive Features of the Nativity
[Budha-yuti-Ketu] involves both pragmatic administrative procedures and esoteric, anti-materialistic perceptions * Ketu
The overall nativity is strengthened by the presence of graha in all four corners * kendra.This remarkable pattern applies to BOTH the D-1 and the D-9 varga.
In D-1 kendra, all four cardinal chara * rashi
In D-9 kendra, in all four mutable * dviswa-bhava
Radical svakshetra Graha
Yuvati bhava 10th-from-10th - day-to-day interactions, daily reality, advising
[uchcha] Shani-7 engages the lawful balancing order in matters of high importance to the conduct of public affairs. Indicates consultants to government ministers.
Uttama karma-pati Shani occupies the career-driving 10th-from-10th yuvatisthāna. This balancing, yoking Shani-yoga guarantees a long and lawful governance career [Shani] in specialties of consulting, advising, diplomacy, relationships (Tula, 7).
Powerful and stable career. Longevity in career. High dignity and respect in public life.
Dignified success in public endeavors, despite whatever internal frustration s may arise from the
Also in karma-sthāna: Shukra in parivartamsha yoga with Shukra's mithragraha S Shani
Kuja-Drishti toward bhava-4, bhava-7 and bhava-8 shows a competitive and adversarial quality, of a sporting and masculine nature, in the advising behaviors. Abundant physical energy and a blunt Kuja dosha afflicts Chandra-4, Rahu-4, Shani-7.
dikbala - Shani-Tula [uchcha] * Sasya Yoga [Shani in Bhava-7] Shani's austere adherence to marriage vows keeps the core relationships chaste. Opportunities for challenge and competitive excitement are found within the business partnerships but marriage remains fixed.
Yuvatisthāna = 10th-from-10th = central to career. Daily interactions and agreement-building consensus with peers form the foundation of professional achievement. A good career must be strong in both bhava-7 and bhava-10.
Shani drishti to Chandra produces a hard worker, materialistic, often unable to accept direct physical affection, but appreciative of duty performed, laws abided, and material acquisition.
Rahu, Kuja, and Shani affect the Chandra-Rahu pair in bhava-4. Many house-shifts and career-driven changes in dwelling. Yet unshakably dedicated to the perpetuation of ancient [Chandra] folk customs and cultural norms and maintenance of traditional rhythms in the home.
Long-term duty and dedication to public service in matters of finance (Vrishabha) indicated by the muted Surya-Shani pair in 6th dashamamsha -10 Vrishabha.
Surya-yuti-Ketu * detached from the punitive, conformist pressures of public opinion
Bepin Behari commentary Planets in Signs and Houses WRT the awkward 6/8 angle produced by vidya-pati-5 Surya-Makara in bhava-10
" You are very ambitious and hard-working.
However, you often fail to hit the target, and consequently feel immensely frustrated."
[Guru in bhava-9]
Bhagyavahana Yoga = ruler of 9 in bhava-9 while ruler of 1 in bhava-1
provides the overall fortune of
being in the right place at the right time" (9, wisdom)
provides the theosophical perspective
internationalizes the viewpoint
expands the scope of orthodoxy
Behari was born into a Budha mahadasha due to his Budha-ruled AśleṣaChandra. Therefore his material terra-lifespan did not include a mahadasha of either Guru or Shani. The effects of both of these powerhouse graha must be experienced via drishti upon other graha.
Broadminded and philosophical Guru casts drishti upon radix Kuja and upon bhava-5 for literary authorship (in Simha, the realm of royal Vishnu and divine intelligence)
Guru joins Kuja in D-10. Kuja bhukti really brought forth the effects of indoctrinator Dharmesha-9 Guru, through Jyotisha writing and lecturing.
The only graha lying outside the grand square in radix is the most excellent dharmesha-9 -in-9, Guru. since He will not have His own Vimshottari mahadasha, Guru's main contribution is the benefic ray He casts upon Ruchaka-Yoga Mangala.
Guru can have a karako bhavo nashto down-side affecting the father. The father may be over-confident of his own knowledge, pompous, or a priest locked into ritual who is unable to see the truth underlying ceremonial religion.
|10th-from- Chandra - psycho-emotional true service||
Kuja again. Self-defining and overflowing with physical combative energy. Luckily that energy is skillfully but firmly constrained by the [uchcha] Shani. Result is many challenges and obstacles overcome - some instantly, through heroic action most slowly and patiently, through maturity and the turning of the wheels of government bureaucracy and time.
Jyotisha studies must have provided a healthy outlet for the creative, competitive, individualistic energies of Kuja when the pressures of large, conformist organizations and their internal entropy would begin to weigh heavily on this bright independent thinker. Jyotisha provides the"big picture" view that his Chara square craves, while promising more action than the procedural rules of diplomacy could ever hope to produce.
|Budha activates [10th navamsha]||
Chattering Kumara ruler of career-profile Navamsha-10 occupies radical 10th in rashi of politically conservative, government-service Makara, suggesting a profession at the highest levels of the social order.
Budha's relationship to the highly benevolent
parivartamsha Shukra-Makara brings luxury wealth and structural, architectural beauty.
[Budha-yuti-Ketu] , Budha-yuti-Shukra, Budha-yuti-Surya
The career is complex and diverse, due to bidding bantering Budha's numerous relationships.
The Ketu influence is always dispersing, pulverizing, eroding the ego-attachments to material rank or praiseworthy social performance. Ultimately, one's reputation derives more from his spiritual contribution and less from his material status.
A straightforward, talented, rule-abiding and steadfast public servant who is a master of policy and planning detail. An administrative economist-by-day Yet, an esoteric Jyotiṣika-by-night.
Shani-7 in auspicious 9th-from-11th rules vriddhi-bhava-11 Kumbha-Ghata . One is steadily employed with pragmatic judgment on matters of hierarchy and rank [Shani] and fair contracts (Shani-Tula). Gradually goal-gainful over time (Shani, lente, slow). His materially gainful activity (11) is socially normative [Shani] and regular in its productive pace.
| Bepin Behari commentary
Planets in Signs and Houses
WRT the awkward 6/8 angle produced by bhratru-pati-3 Budha-Makara in bhava-10
Budha ruler of bhava-3 and bhava-6 = Typically, the most growth-challenging graha for Mesha nativities
" You find that mental acuity, sociability, and comprehension of the deeper principles of nature and society depend on experiences gathered by the soul throughout many incarnations.
You work virtuously to acquire knowledge, especially esoteric wisdom, but somehow remain at the periphery of enlightenment.
You are very opinionated and cannot be submissive to anyone, as a result of which you fail to make much headway in life."
self-identification with a specific social activity
location of life force
natural sphere of action
Kuja = independent, innovative, athletic, impulsive, and dominating. Mangala's energetic, invasive effects are felt via drishti in 4-home, 7-marriage, and 8-hidden tantra.
Kuja activates 1 and 8. The double effect upon bhava-8 -- Kuja owns and casts His eye there -- suggests a powerful but nicely camouflaged pursuit [Kuja] of the esoteric treasuries.
