For Punarvasu natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.
Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

"... 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

|Distinctive Features of the Nativity ||
Surya-8 conditions of departure * heart failure related to diabetes
Garcia's father was a musician and tavern-keeper (provider of sustenance = Karkata-2 food). Dad was killed by drowning when Jerry was only six years old.
Garcia toured and wrote with his musical band (Budha). The show went on the road constantly for thirty years. Yet their list of venues did not change very much. Like migrating wildlife, they returned to the same locales, year after year. Garcia liked a predictable (Chandra) calendar of gatherings in familiar (Chandra) places.
Marriages * emotional exchange assessed via 7th-from-Chandra-10
three legal marriages, one union with child, and numerous supplemental relationships
ruler of 12 imagination in 10th-from-12th bhava-9 * visionary painter, musician; notable narrative of OOB experience in ET-ship
rogesha Zukra greatly expanded via Brihaspati *
Zukra rules thula-11. Garcia enjoyed a large fan base via expansive Zukra-yuti-Guru supporting a 30-year career in musical performance touring
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Surya rules 10th navamsha * Kumbha * mass gatherings, social-participation movements
Shani rules the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically fruitful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra = fans, community, social networks
Shani occupies 6th radical bhava. The fans distinctively did not want to hear new material (Shani resists change).
bhratrupathi-3 touring Shani-6 = illness and addiction related to touring
any papagraha in bhava-6 can be beneficial. Mr. Garcia began self-medicating at age 15 and continued until his death age 53. Among numerous other health challenges, he was also a diabetic heroin addict. Despite many police arrests (6) Garcia never went to prison nor even to jail more than overnight. He was a frequent patron of rehabilitation "detox" residential treatment centers. Shani-6 drishti to 8-12-3 is generally helpful by providing resistance to the outcomes of 8, 12, and 8th-from-8th.
Shani occupies 6, Shani rules Ketu-3, Shani casts drishti upon 3, and Shani occupies the emotionally motivated evangelical communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra. Shani's ruler Shukra and Shukra rules the purvazadha lagna.
Garcia developed a traveling musical band (3) which toured (Ketu-3) constantly for decades (Shani), rarely altering the performance routine (Shani prevents change). He toured with a musical band of friends (11) for 30 years, many times expressing exhaustion but always, usually for reasons of indebtedness (Shani-6) returning to this work.
Although an iconic figure, he was never the sole center of the Grateful Dead and other bands. Garcia with the home-and-routine needy Karkata-Surya-8 was never inclined toward the singular focus royalty-celebrity lifestyle often feigned by popular stage performers. Shani's ruler Zukra-yuti-Guru and Guru casts dirshti into 11-1-3. The ensemble (3) toured in a drug-fueled environment which also defined their musical performances.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu-9 indicates an absentee father. Mr. Garcia's father, who was also a musician, died from accidental drowning during a family holiday when young Jerry was only six years old.
