Masculine Nativities

Krittika * Pleyades * Riksya * Agneya

BPL commentary

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.

Radiant Certainty

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 nakshatrapathi 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 Zukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatrapathi 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 Krittika

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Jyotishavidya Bepin Behari

Surya * pitrikaraka


  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator
  • Surya in bhava-10 * digbala * center of hierarchy * brightly governing * legislative intelligence * focus on social order * father holds a respected position * regulatory entitlements * eye on high authority * radiant reputation * sparkling center of the leadership drama
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational * bright messenger * entitled to discuss * creatively intelligent sibling-cohort * discursive father-figure * speaks and gestures in alignment with the spiritual rays of the Sun * radiantly descriptive * articulate in drama and games * self-confident announcements * talks about ideals, power-politics, poetic love, and romance

  • Surya-yuti-Ketu * confidently detached * bright observer * entitled to surrender * apathetic toward the spiritual rays of the Sun * creatively intelligent abandonment * politically disinterested * wandering father-figure * radiantly unconcerned

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Karkata * swakshetra * comforted by culturally familiar, rhythmic tidal maternal soothing
  • Chandra in Azlesa--Naga comforted by restraining embrace * protector of defensive communications, familiar folk messages, emotional evangelism, signaling ethno-cultural boundaries
  • Chandra in classroom-4 * digbala * comfort in familiar routines * calmed by caretaking * seeks continuous oscillating motion * sensitive to ethnic folkways * contented by recurrent rituals * soothed by customary habits * tranquilized by rhythmic waves * needs pulsation * nurtured by gardening * follows local pathways * feels rooted into the land * settled into home-keeping * undulating patriotism
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient * sensitive to exotic figures * needs exciting opportunities * unconventional parenting style * soothed by unusual environments * undulating desires * craves nurturing * feels exceptional

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

* Ruchaka Yoga

  • Mangala-Meza * moolatrikona 0-18 deg. * vigorous pursuit of dominance * straightforward dynamic actions * competitive winner * propulsive battering weaponry * push toward conquest * pioneering vitality * hot yang-energy * thrusting force * forward-driving movement * champion of innovation
  • Mangala in bhava-1 * A fighter * a winner * a champion* drive toward embodied performance vitality * pursuit of competition * direct physical action * thrusting vigor * dominating personality * potentially a bully. Can dig * drill * dive * excavate * plumb * explode * explore (both physically and psychologically) dynamic innovator * lively push toward fast driving+ speedy transport * energized muscular conquests * athletic body.

Kuja in Mithunaya = both D-9 navamsha + D-10 dazamamza-10 .

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

  • Ruchaka Yoga = panchmahapurusha swakshetra Mangala-1
  • Bhagyavahana Yoga = ruler of 9 in 9 while lord of 1 in 1.

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, Zukra, 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.

  • Budha-Makara-Draco * bureaucratic communications * articulation of lawfully orderly process * proletarian phrasing * delivers procedure for imposing rules * descriptive explanations of the social order *  messages about governance * documentation of regulatory procedures * diagrams the hierarchies * status-conscious mentality * hands-arms-shoulders send normalizing gestures

Guru in bhava-9 * international, theoretical, broad-worldview in philosophical teaching

BB's spiritual perspective is guided by distinctively theosophist interpretive principles, and he draws deeply from that belief tradition in his presentation of the frameworks 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.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Makara-Draco * appreciation of authoritative status, likes architectural structure, attracted to officials and law, enjoys social position, beautiful bones, prefers old buildings and stony dryness, balanced skeleton, lovely legs, pleasures of structure, hierarchical arrangements
  • Zukra-10 * pleasure of regulation * enjoys lawful social authority * makes socially important contractual agreements * reputation for for gracious balancing * respects feminine-figures * harmonious style of governance * likes pleasing designs to adorn the upper legs + knees + calves * rule-maker imposing equity * appreciation of order * legislates justice

rdhanapati-2 + yuvatipathi-7 Zukra-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 ."

Shani mutual drishti Mangala

  • Shani-Thula * uttama * heavy old agreements * mandatory bargaining * strict rules for making agreements * vital energy compression stress zone = kidney-pancreas * rigidly regulated match-making * limitations upon socially approved partnerships * must honor the lowest-common-denominator in deal-making * common law for fair-exchange * must materialize orderly social justice * must work in structures of unyielding diplomacy * must cooperate with slow elderly counselors* must trade within statutory requirements * must continue conventional negotiations despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-7 * digbala * (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious partnerships. One must balance and re-balance. Cautious, conventional relationships. Tense negotiations. Chronic responsibilities toward the spouse; compression of the visible genitalia; heavy legacy pressure against freely chosen contracts.  Bargaining fatigue. Resistance to new arrangements. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as married person, contract-holder, match-maker, attorney, diplomat, judge.
  • Shani-7 parivartamsha Zukra-10

parivartamsha yoga of Zukra-Makara-Uttarazadha (psychic) -10 with dig-bala Visaka-Thula-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 rules 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.

KarmaBhava -10 -

The work ethic = Shani stamina + Budha verbosity + Ketu psychic awareness

Budha-yuti-Ketu, Budha-yuti-Zukra, Budha-yuti-Surya all in the professionalized karmasthana. One places duty to the social order above all other obligations.

Karma-pathi-10 uttama-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 Azlesa Chandra. 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.

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

  • Asresa clinging binding * Rahu-Karkata * shimmering illusion of security * craving for customary rhythms * risky policing * mirage of home and shelter * mask of ancestral belonging to a habitual place * tantalizing acts of protective defense * over-reaching patriotism * fabulous farms and fisheries * fascinating ethnic routines * marvelous localities * intriguing owned properties * extraordinary cetaceans * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of motherliness, nationalism, loyalty to the homeland * seeks privilege via parent-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-4 * passion for property, routine, roots * in swabhava of Comforting Chandra, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual cultural roots; seeks amplified ownership of properties, unusual lands and vehicles, buildings, farms, vehicles; desires a special, important role in land use entitlements. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious parents, especially the mother-figure. Ambitious, Over-reaching, ambitious character of the property-owners, real-estate deeds and claims, fence-makers, boundary-defenders, transporters, drivers of trucks and ships, police, schoolteachers, farmers, fisherfolk. Boasts deep roots in the local environment. Craves a showcase home, fabulous garden, or prestige lands..
  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu * amplified emotion, magnified familiarity exotic habits, tricky comforts, opportunistic mother, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking, hypnotic rhythms, emotionally attuned to cross-cultural mixing, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking

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.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Makara-Draco * dissociates from strict regulations * * incomplete hierarchy * empty rules * dissolute laws * meaningless social authority positions * severed execution of duties * not limited by public conventions * ignores restriction on rank * disregards status barriers * applies institutional structure to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-10 * disregards rank * no barriers in class-pyramid * fearless toward regulations * absent from officialdom * vacuous leadership * irrelevance of government protocols * ambivalent toward public respect * abandons high positions * ignores social ordering rules * surrenders elite authority
  • Ketu-yuti-Surya * surrendered creativity, empty drama, unsustainable confidence, disconnected father, apathetic intelligence, intellectual disengagement, dispersed vision, disinterest in games, unfulfilled genius, fragmented politics, incoherent entertainments, wandering focus. Spiritual liberation via release of egocentricity.
  • Ketu-yuti-Budha * surrendered articulation, empty talk, unsustainable explanations, disconnected siblings, apathetic evangelism, incomplete details, misnomers, fragmented schedules, unfulfilled deliveries, illogical messaging, impermanent plans, spiritual liberation via gestures and discussion. For commercial nativities, may dissolve the ensemble, workgroup, cohort, or team.
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * surrendered arrangements * unfulfilled promises * disconnected bargaining * unsustainable contracts * incomplete harmony * fragmented negotiations * abandoned alliances * absence of equity * apathetic brokerage * eccentric music * distrust * dissatisfaction in relationships * Spiritual liberation via release of vows * For husbandly nativities, may dissolve the wifely-figures.

Planets in Signs and Houses * Ketu in classroom-10 profession, public authority

"You are an idealist, though an unhappy one, uninterested in life."

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 swakshetra Graha:

Public Career

Yuvati bhava 10th-from-10th - day-to-day interactions, daily reality, advising

uttama-Shani-7 engages the lawful balancing order in matters of high importance to the conduct of public affairs. Indicates consultants to government ministers.

Uttama karmapathi Shani occupies the career-driving 10th-from-10th yuvatisthana. This balancing, yoking Shani-yoga guarantees a long and lawful governance career (Shani) in specialties of consulting, advising, diplomacy, relationships (Thula, 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 karmasthana: Zukra in parivartamsha yoga with Zukra'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.

dig-bala * Shani-Thula * uttama * 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.

Yuvatisthana = 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.


ego-membrane identification

  • ruler of 2nd from Chandra
  • ruler of 5th from radical lagna

Atmakaraka Surya

Ego-identified as

  • Surya vidyapathi vidyapathi-5 * literary author
  • Surya-Makara in bhava-10 * governance officer, policy director
  • Surya in 9th navamsha * teacher of doctrine
  • Surya-Simha navamsha * bright presence in politics, drama, royal or celebrity environments

Long-term duty and dedication to public service in matters of finance (Vrishabha) indicated by the muted Surya-Shani pair in 6th dazamamza-10 Vrishabha.

Surya-yuti-Ketu * detached from the punitive, conformist pressures of public opinion

Bepin Behari commentary Planets in Signs and Houses re: the awkward 6/8 angle produced by vidyapathi-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-Dhanuzya * 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 Azlesa Chandra. 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 period 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.

Chandra Yoga
  • rules radical bhava-4
  • Chandra-Mangala Yoga via drishti
  • Chandra-Mangala yoga via drishti to bhava-4. Financial advantage via competitive energy, innovation, physical movement of Mangala-Mesha plus Chandra-Rahu mixing with those who belong outside the home culture.

  • Kapata yoga in bhava-4. Less stability in home life. The home is much influenced by foreigners, due to Rahu; and some internal conflict via house-shifts and rapid movement, due to Kuja

  • Kahala Yoga - a strong bandhesha-4 Chandra receiving drishti of a strong karmapathi-10 Shani. Produces extreme stubbornness and rigidity in the home life, but softens the leadership style adding a parental quality. Can be patronizing and rigid yet protective and reliable. Takes leadership roles with conviction that the customary way (4) is best for the social order (10). Not swayed by others due to strong foundations in life (4).

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 uttama-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 rules 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 Zukra-Makara brings luxury wealth and structural, architectural beauty.

Budha-yuti-Ketu, Budha-yuti-Zukra, Budha-yuti-Surya

The career is complex and diverse, due to bantering Budha's numerous relationships.

The Ketu influence is always dispersing, pulverizing, eroding the ego-attachments to material rank or praiseworthy social performance. Ultimately the native'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 Jyotishi-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-Thula). 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

re: the awkward 6/8 angle produced by bhratrupathi-3 Budha-Makara in bhava-10

Budha ruler of bhava-3 and bhava-6 = typically the most 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 rules 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.

  • uttama-Shani in bhava-7 protects the marriage.

  • Home life must have been frequently disrupted.

  • Kuja drishti upon Rahu-4 produces impatience with conventional schooling.
