BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical 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."

FDR Career

Karmesha Surya-3 + Budha = The Business Side of Institutional Governance

FDR earned praise for his service as Under-Secretary of the Navy 1913-1920. His administrative skills were complimented by military and government superiors. They observed that FDR understood the commercial aspect of Navy business, such as billing, procurement, and supply chain procedures. When WW-2 forced intense engagement of US military forces across the globe, FDR's Navy background proved valuable. It was said that "the Navy has a friend in FDR".

Skillful messaging in times of crisis

Karmesha Surya-3 located in the crisis-managing 8th-from-Chandra

Surya became the angel (3, evangelism) of fear-reducing radio messages as he commented upon the terrifying collapse of "life as we knew it" during Great Depression and WW-2. Every word that was spoken in those traumatic times had to be very carefully crafted (3).

FATHER and DOCTRINE * Chandra rules pitristhana

Chandra-8 rules bhava-9, effective draining dharmasthana of much of its power. FDR had no particular doctrinal affiliation nor principled ideological agenda. His father was by all accounts a benevolent and caring man who spent time with his son but due to dad's advanced age and health frailty, dad was a weak figure far dominated by FDR's much-younger mother.

Various observers, including his children, reckon that FDR conducted numerous extramarital adventures during his 12 years in the Whitehouse, some lasting many years.

According to the memoires of close observers (including his son) FDR wanted to marry Lucy. When she discovered the affair shortly after delivering their sixth child. POTUS-pair-32 Learn by Living 1884-1962 Eleanor Roosevelt offered a divorce.

However, the re was deep conflict and trauma (8, Kuja) around their situation. First of all, FDR's wealthy mother threatened to disinherit him if he divorced. She wanted to keep the money in the family and that meant staying with his cousin ER.

Second, Lucy as an observant Roman-rite Catholic would not marry a divorced man indicating the dilemma of Zukra-doctrine-9.

Historians agree that FDR enjoyed a number of women companions during his tenure as POTUS-32. Yet his love for Lucy seemed unbreakable. She married another, and remained legallywed for 24 years until she was widowed, but the love link with FDR was sustained secretly (8) for decades. FDR called for Lucy and she arrived to accompany his last few days before the Lightbody Lift-off, concluding a Shani-cycle relationship which spanned 29 years = 1916-1945.

Chandra in Mriga-zirasa contributes a remarkable ability to communicate about terrifying topics (8) in a dynamic but emotionally accessible, plain-spoken fashion that nearly everyone in his audience could understand. FDR was the communicator-in-chief during a series of extreme emergencies for the third-century USA including the Great Depression and WW-2.

The deep suffering of millions of Americans was tangible to all during the continuing Great Depression. FDR was not able to fix the problem completely, but he was able to communicate with the public on matters of fear, terror, and sudden eruptions of unexpected force. These trauma event patterns were familiar to him due to the patterns of his personal life upheavals, especially from dealing with his mother.

intensely secretive power surging with eruptive danger

FDR was a master of personal and professional secrets. In 1916 FDR started his first and most passionate affair with ER's secretary Lucy Mercer. FDR's subsequent affairs were not hidden from Eleanor, nor hers from him. Yet their joint and separate adventures were camouflaged by a skilled publicity-management team, including secretaries devoted to each of the partners individually. Since they did not divorce, the public remained utterly unaware of this prominent married couple's passionate secret liaisons during their lifetimes.

On the level of world politics during the dangerous eras of economic collapse and global violence, the president entrusted his wife Eleanor with extraordinary secrets of war, which she handled under proxy powers. Her bhava-12 = Chandra-Budha-Mangala-Surya-Vrizchika powerfully matches his Vrizchika 10th navamsha + dashamamsha, showing that while their personal compatibility was dysfunctionally compromised by 6/8 Chandra positions, their ability to work as a team in high-threat global affairs was immensely functional.

It was FDR's own daughter Anna who called for Lucy when FDR was dying.

Camouflaged from the society-eyes of Washington D.C.,FDR died, aged 63, a physically (Mesha) broken man . Lucy Mercer had been Eleanor's personal secretary and therefore Lucy knew everyone in FDR's friends-and-family network. The revelation that Lucy had been summoned to FDR by FDR's own daughter shocked and angered his wife.

Public Shock

Since its 1921 sudden onset, FDR's profound illness had been skillfully covered up (8) by his public relations handlers (3-public relations). Therefore news of his fleshdeath on 12-Apr-1945 was met with utter shock and grief across the U.S. and around the world.

The violence of these sudden endings threw much of the world into a state of terror (8). Yet POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower orchestrated a successful conquest, celebrated as V-E Day, on 08-May-1945. This risky and untried maneuver posed a hugely uncertain gamble (Eisenhower has D-9 Mula Chandra, granting an acceptance of massive risk). It might have created massive destruction for the Allies. But it worked, showing the public some proof of the possibility of regeneration and rebirth after a time of awful fear.
