Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatrapathi Budha, often Jyeztha-born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power.

In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha-Kita

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

"Andrew Jackson - Ad from Tennessee Gazette, October 3, 1804. Photographed by Tennessee State Library. Reprinted in Cynthia Cumfer, Separate Peoples, One Land: The Minds of Cherokees, Blacks, and Whites on the Tennessee Frontier (University of North Carolina Press, 2007).

Notice published by future president Andrew Jackson offering a $50 reward, plus expenses, for the return of an enslaved mulatto man who escaped from Jackson's plantation.

POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson was a vigorous frontiersman, politician, and warrior. His lifestyle was pioneering (Kuja), physical, and aggressive; often lived outdoors in the company of men. Jackson was a highly controversial figure in Washington DC. He was considered rough and impulsive, murderous, and lacking finesse. However his lagnesha Kuja-7 shares Vrishabha-7 with digbala Shani while Shani and Mangala are receiving the drishti of Rahu-Makara-10 while Mangala himself sends drishti into Chandra-Guru-Simha-10 boosting the political visibility. Mangala-7 alone would have been too vigorous and impatient. However tempered by Shani and amplified by Rahu, Jackson's Mangala-7 served to increase his effectiveness. Despite the misgivings of many who found him cruel and impulsive, Jackson endured eight years (two terms) as POTUS-07 * 1829-1837

Meena Surya (politics) + uttama-Zukra (wife) + nichha-Budha (untruths) in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -1-10 Simha politics governance.

During the "dirtiest campaign in American history" the notorious election of 1828, the supporters of her husband's rival, POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams attacked the virtue of both Jackson and his wife. A great beauty in her youth but unable to bear public exposure, Rachel Donelson Jackson was bombarded taunts of 'harlot' and 'hussy' from her husband's political enemies.

Other features

Zukra-Meena * uttama * Rachel Donelson was said to have enjoyed a lovely appearance in youth. Yet her short stature paired with a notably full figure in her maturity exacerbated existing cardiac issues, Simha 6th-from-Zukra.

She died of heart failure only weeks before her husband departed Tennessee toward Washington DC, en route to begin his governance service as POTUS-07.

Incoherent Zukra-yuti-Ketu in 10th navamsha suggests that he would need to govern (10) without the reliable support of partners-advisers. Jackson was also unable to sustain a working cabinet due to fractiousness and greed, suggesting impairment to Zukra in both D-1 and D-9.

Rachel retreated into privacy (Meena)) protecting herself with obesity and a facade of stern Biblical piety. She helped her husband privately, and her family's wealth funded Jackson's career (uttama-Zukra in the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra -10 = spousal treasures) . Yet she eschewed public appearances and remained sequestered. Overweight (Meena lymph) and overwhelmed, she developed symptoms of angina and died just before he began POTUS-07 work in Washington DC. He served eight years 1829-1837 as a widower, never remarrying. However Surya-yuti-Zukra and Budha-yuti-Zukra do suggest additional private liaisons.

  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, limited progress, physical discipline, constrained movement, regulated competition

Jackson was personally identified with The Hermitage and he used its image in all of his public-relations promotional material.

owner of "The Hermitage" a substantial slave-powered Tennessee plantation. His wealth came from sales of its agricultural products and its slaves.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Karkata * dissociates from protective boundaries, incomplete security, empty shelter, dissolute caretaking, not limited by customary routines, ignores restriction on farming, real-estate, disarrayed home-making, applies foundational protection to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * incoherent ideology, disinterested in the credenda; wandering worldview; absentee father-figures * no barriers in doctrine, disregards teachings, vacuous philosophy, irrelevance of the catechesis, ambivalence toward the power of principled conviction.
