Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu

BPL commentary

For Dhaniztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors,, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-oriented and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. However, unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They need a strong pulsing beat and a high achievement goal. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and dominated by men.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-roots + 11-goals. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police and defense (4) minerals and mining (4) or in any industry where the path to economic gain (11) is open to their dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership. They are famed as dominating, irascible personalities whose innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Themes of brotherhood, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."

Shani occupies 7th-from-Chandra signifying an enduring, responsible, but often separated first marital union.
  2. marriage-2 partner = bhava-8- Kanya = second alliance Budha-9 Parivartamsha Zukra-8 adds power to second marriage. Zukra-8 is also a yogakaraka. The divorce was extremely contentious but during the more harmonious years of the marriage, many financial (Zukra) empowerments occurred.

Budha rules 8-identity transformation

Budha-8 rules 4-domestic 7-lawcourts, attorneys. Much of GE's income was camouflaged (8) from US govt taxation. This treasury was hidden due to much of it having global origin (Guru global) but also due to the legal manipulations of the US tax code effected by the shrewd corporate lawyers empowered via Welch's Zukra-7 (lawcourts) ++ Zukra Parivartamsha yoga Budha-8 (obscuration, hiding, confidential information, secret treasuries)

An only child, Welch was born with a Zukra-ruled Chandra-Purvaphalguni ensuring that he would have a lifelong taste for luxury and beauty.

during Shani-Zukra bhukti in 2006 following retirement from General Electric, , Welch established a for-profit online MBA which expresses the educational pattern of Zukra ruler of 4-9 from lagna + commercial 3-10 from Chandra.

Zukra nichha suggests persistent issues with women, and repeating patterns of disagreement in matters of equity, contracts, and values. Broken contracts.

As a child during Zukra mahadasha, Welch (who later became an inspirational and commanding speaker) was plagued by a stutter. 2nd-from-Chandra = nichha-Zukra. Yogakaraka will later bring benefits.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Kumbha * moolatrikona 0-20 deg * heavy old economic systems, obliged to conform to the marketplace rules, pressure to maintain social linkage, vital energy compression stress zone = skin-nerves, strictly imposed regulations for electro-magnetic networking, limitations on earnings distribution, must materialize past-to-future gridwork, must sustain lowest-common-denominator proletarian communities, rigidly slow elder friends and mentors, must continue to achieve social-material goals despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-1 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious personality. One must act under pressure, have to move but slowly, push forward against stiff limitations; cautious, conventional identity; tense competition, muscular fatigue, chronic impeded movement, seizures and cramps. Heavy legacy pressure against free movement. Resistance to new ideas and direct action. Resentment toward constriction of physical appearance. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles, conventionalized identity, and conduct befitting an elder.

Shani rules emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra + relationship-harmonizing 7th-from-Chandra

General Electric CEO 1935- Jack Welch was too rational and scientifically complex in his early group communication style. He had to amplify and excite his style of making announcements, develop teams, and learn how to run a business meeting.

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

  • Rahu-Dhanuzya * shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of fatherly generosity * extraordinary theory * unusual approach to higher truth * mask of global humanistic belief * fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous patronage * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of professorship, guidance, proselytism, guru-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-11 * passion for prizes, achievements * in Roguish Rahu's swabhava co-ruled with Sober Shani ,* the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual social goals and economic attainments. Desires an important, linkage role in social participation and financial networks. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious friends. Craves profit and gain. Rahu-11 thrives in culturally-mixed commodity-exchange systems. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a friend, a voluntary linker, an economic achiever, a relative of the father's people. Rahu-11 trespasses the cultural boundaries of friendship and community. Boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu typically enjoys material success in marketplace profits, revenue, earnings due to His social-participation genius.
  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition, magnified championship, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inventive, dynamic energy, hypnotic attack, engineered force of cross-cultural mixing

Welch's 2018 net worth was estimated at USD_750million

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversations, incomplete message, empty instructions, dissolute signals, not limited by commerce, ignores restriction on communication, applies explanatory gestures to the misty abyss, applies explanatory gestures to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-5 * ambivalent toward entitlements, absentee children, apathetic toward the offspring, disregards normal limitations on financial speculation, fragmented or esoteric intelligence, dissolves the glamour of center-stage roles, disperses the romantic adoration. One abandons the usual political behaviors, eccentric style of creativity. Disoriented drama. Plays an incoherent game.

Welch was famously disinterested in his children. It was reported that he returned home so rarely from corporate life that his kids asked their mother, "Who is that guy?"

Also, bandhesha-4 Zukra-nichha occupies bhava-8, suggesting homeroots often dislodged by the ongoing cycles of identity-change (8).

commentary on Madhya Vayasi Dhana Yoga

"A perusal of astrological literature bearing up ''Wealth' reveals clearly that in order to become rich,

  • one should have in his horoscope combinations which comprehend a point of contact between lords of Lagna, 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th.

Permutations and combinations of these lords give rise to A stupendous number of Dhana Yogas "
