Masculine Public-Figure Examples
Purnavasi - Vutvrta - Jamitra
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
[Mithuna - 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....
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

VSN caused an international furor as well as an international excitement. International  praise culminating in the 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature, awarded for his critical writings on worldwide  spiritualized superstitions and ritual prayers [Chandra ritual] .
Rahu smoke + Ketu disregard
[Somana-yuti-Rahu-9] VSN was a great smoker ++ widely traveled, until well into his 80's. Somana-yuti-Rahu [= Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra] may have contributed his decades-long addiction to prostitutes, which he self-reported as a regular habit [Chandra habit] throughout his first marriage.

OUTCOMES - KETU
[Ketu in classroom-3] suggests a fragmenting, dissolving condition that unsticks the discursive cohesion of the mental status. It need not be crippling, but the sheer openness to non-consensus reality can be perceived as mental incoherence.
One may blur the lines between fact and fiction.
Can be a gifted writer of abstract philosophy, science fiction, or other eccentric genre which benefit from collapsing of conventional descriptive formats.
However, there is a tendency to disregard personal boundaries when discussing other people's business. Depending upon Surya, one may be perceived as a wingnut, gossip, or just the neighborhood windbag.
Naipaul's literary genius attests to the positive empowerments of Witness-Observer Ketu when He combines with other skillful writer-graha in 3
Ketu's disregard for consequences in matters of conversation, announcement, and discourse can create unsustainable narratives that sound plausible, but the information  lacks a factual foundation.
[Ketu-Singha] the unsustainable, implausible scripts = typically speculative, creative, romantic, dramatic, or political-gamesmanship.
Lungs  may be weakened.
7th-from-Chandra = Ketu + Guru + Budha + Surya

VSN reported that he consorted with prostitutes and took numerous lovers, some of them for decades. Be his own account, he became monogamous only after celebrating a second marriage, at his age 63.
