Masculine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary

For Pushyami births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.

Laws and Customs

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as transportation, farming and fishing, home-building and real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles (Shani) that provide an orderly process (Shani) for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushyami.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

intelligent and quite religious in his outlook.

  • Quite often a regular attendant at church services

Withal, he is possessed of the qualities which make for success in the material world,

and has the ability to rise in position

  • and to command the respect of his associates.

He will fill a position of executive requirements

  • and be admired and respected by his immediate family."

Suggestions from a reader re: Mr. Soros' Jyotisha nativity:

Respected Madame, I guess his chart should have the birth time of around 2:10 AM..

The dasha on Sep 16 1992 is Venus-Rahu-Jupiter....Rahu is vargottam in 11th house... exalted venus yuti jupiter in 10th navamsha. ~~ regards

Hi, I am very glad that you are working on Mr. George Soros chart.

I truly idolize him and actually wanted to be like him though it may be just a dream. Please accept my thanks.

I would request you to discuss his extraordinary intuition ability (he used to get a backache whenever there was a problem with his portfolio and it used to go away as soon as he corrected it), success in financial markets, abstract philosophical bent, struggle with living in his early years, also if his charitable acts (Seva, karmic points) helped him in retaining his wealth/position....

In march 2000 his fund SOROS fund management suffered the biggest loss (few billion dollars) which led to his separation with his fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller (he is the same person together with whom he had made 1 B usd on 16th Sep,1992) and after that he stopped taking high risk in his investments.

Hope to see your full analysis soon.

Best Regards

The Wide-Impact Drama of Currency Devaluation within the Traders' Market

* Zukra-Rahu bhukti * gochara Rahu was transiting via Dhanuzya-6 ++ Sade-Sati

Soros suddenly became world-renowned figure on 16-Sept-1992 Black Wednesday

  • Soros famously Broke the Bank of England in a shrewd and devastating gamble for the valuation of the pound-sterling . Mangala-Vrizabha aggressive, competitive valuation
  • On this one single day, Soros created one billion dollars profit in currency trading. This remarkable feat was achieved by a manipulation of currency-market contracts = Mangala in bhava-11 drishti into Shani-6-Mula yuvathipathi = contracts
  • The Bank had been stalling and resisting a re-valuation of its currency past the market need for it to act.
  • Rahu-Meza-Arya drishti into Shani-Dhanuzya + Shani in Bhava-6
  • Shani-6-Mula represents the internally disagreeing, equity-disadvantaged, change-resistant policies of the Bank of England. .
  • Rahu-Meza-Arya drishti into +++ Mangala in bhava-11 drishti into Budha-Simha + Budha in bhava-2
  • Mangala in bhava-11 attacked the international, political risks that were being managed (Budha) by the Bank of England

GS won the contest handsomely (Meza contest) . Yet GS win (Meza) had some bitter consequences for others, because it resulted in the much-resisted devaluation of the pound sterling currency and oppressed the value of old-age pensions in Britain.

Shani in Bhava-6 welcomes incoming drishti from Rahu-10

Shani transiting via Makara-7 legal contracts at the time = rigidity of Shani had failed to change to respond to new conditions = Shani-Makara (institutions, law, resistance to change).

This extraordinary act of a single independent (Meza) currency trader was both admired and reviled. GS reputation is therefore mixed with some saying GS is a hero of opportunistic (Rahu) independence and others finding GS actions to be thoughtlessly inconsiderate of the effects upon working people (Shani) and their currency valued pensions (Shani).

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu in classroom-4 occupies 9th-from-Chandra, suggesting a childhood home defined by trade (Thula) yet disconnected (Ketu) from sacred teachings or explicitly religious practices. GS was raised in a non-observant culturally Jewish home, at a time with nearly 1/4 of the population of Budapesht had Jewish roots. Like many intellectuals of the day, GS' parent preferred an ethical (4) rather than ritual basis for their homelife.

  • Ketu-Thula * dissociates from bargaining, incomplete alliance, empty trades, surrendered trust, dispersed negotiations, ignores restriction on deal-making, applies balanced equity to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the homestead, absentee mother-figure, disregards local customs, dissolved property boundaries, wanders from home, irrelevance of the established folkways. One abandons the nationality, dismisses the parents, walks away from the ancestral routines.
