Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta
For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.
Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.
Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.
Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.
Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.
In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.
Mula's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom. Yet the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos have equal utility to compassion and love.
Because Alakmi-born preach their principles while dismissing (Ketu) the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.
When involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula-born may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.
Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.
Mula may suffer from restless windiness (vata dosha).
Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.
"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,
An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences
The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;
Extremely clever and capable."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
1919 = Bess and Harry Truman were the same age. They met in 5th grade and became friends, attending school together until they both graduated.
Their relationship continued until they were 34, when they married in 1919. One daughter was born in 1924.
Mrs. Bess Truman and her daughter Margaret Truman in the Whitehouse, late 1940's.
Surya* pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka
Dad = John Anderson Truman = a farmer, a road-construction supervisor, and a livestock dealer. Dad died when HT was 30 years old. (Mom lived until HT was 63 years old.)
Ketu in classroom-4 The family moved frequently for agricultural reasons, and their farm was lost during the catastrophic Great Depression
Truman was a Machine politician who worked in a political environment beset by high levels of corruption and scandal. Still, he remained largely independent of the vulgarity surrounding him * aristocratic uttama-Surya in bhava-5
Surya in bhava-5 taking drishti of Chandra = one child = daughter Margaret. She was a noted pianist and singer who performed with orchestras nationwide (Surya creative arts). Margaret was dedicated to both of her parents (Surya mutual drishti Chandra). 5th-from-Chandra = bhava-3 communications. Margaret became a successful journalist (3) and writer of mystery novels (3).
Chandra rules Karkata swamsha
Mom = Martha Ellen Young Truman was a Confederate sympathizer until her dying day. HT was said to be exceptionally close to his mother. Mom stayed alive for a long time, supporting Harry until he was 63 years old. Soon after his mom's decease, HT issued the executive orders requiring racial desegregation of the military and federal agencies.
Mom's complex personality = Chandra in classroom-11 accepts incoming drishti from confident, politicized uttama-Surya-5 + secretive nichha-Mangala-8
HT did not attend college. He was largely self-taught via personal reading.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
bhava-5 contains a radiant, independent, politically intelligent Surya-Meza. Bess Truman did what she wanted and she did not do what she did not want to do. As a result, HT benefitted from her astute political insights while Bess decided when and where she would participate.
Wife Bess's father committed suicide when Bess was a teenager = 9th-from-Zukra-7 = bhava-2
Until age 33, Truman lived in political and economic obscurity. He worked on his parents' farm. He endured active combat in WW-1 France. Rootless, HT lived in Depression-era hobo camps while irregularly employed.
HT's fair complexion and pleasant visage = the pale coloring of Zukra-ruled Chandra-Thula-11 ++.Zukra drishti to his Mula-lagna However, it was said that in distinction to his appearance, HT's personality could be aggressive and insulting. HT's trench-talk potty-mouth = nichha-Kuja-8 drishti to Chandra-11..
Chandra randhresha fast changes
Zukra-Chandra bhukti * under the rulership of the randhresha, HT evolved from one of the most powerful, respected men in the world to an almost-broke guy living in a small house in the Midwest with his very elderly mother-in-law
At Truman's age 69, in 1952, POTUS-33 job was finished. After decades of government service ending with seven years at the highest levels of responsibility as POTUS and Commander in Chief, Truman returned to private life of near-penury. He was able to earn from sale of local land (sale of lands Guru rules 3rd-from-4th) from pensions, and from his Memoires.

Many commentators of his day would have asserted that HT obtained the presidency by accident. Truman had been a largely unknown US Senator when he was selected as a VPOTUS candidate to run with Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1944 election. FDR died four months after starting his third term, and VPOTUS Truman became the legal replacement = POTUS-33.
Truman made the very controversial decision to end the Pacific portion of World-War-2 by authorizing the atom-bomb drop onto Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan. It was widely believed that voters would not support killer Truman against the well heeled and educated Thomas Dewey.
election of 1948 = Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * Zukra rules 11-goals, networks
Surprising win of POTUS-33 against the predicted winner and favorite, Tom Dewey
As election time approached, Truman's public approval rating had sunk to an unthinkable 36%. .Yet, HT rallied, making constant election speeches with Zukra equity = civil rights. His win was granted by people with no connection to the East Coast power elites. They lived in the rural and small-town centers, and they were not outraged by the atom bombs but rather appreciated a strong national defense.
Zukra rules 8th-from-Chandra
Despite Budha-yuti-Shani preference for plain speech, HT was nevertheless blessed with a gracious Zukra parivartamsha Budha. His quotations were and still are very popular due to the balanced, simple, but yet elegant style of his aphorisms.
A long retirement
Zukra-Chandra bhukti until Surya-Budha bhukti
After ending his POTUS service with a sudden lifestyle downshift during Zukra-Chandra bhukti (Chandra randhresha), Truman survived an additional 20 years, until age 88.
His retirement (4) was comfortable.
Despite his panicked announcements that he would be going on government relief due to poverty (Ketu 4, surviving on military pension) in fact equity-seeking Zukra-7 ruler of Chandra-11 economics provided several sources of income (11) including a new POTUS pension and royalties from his successful Memoires.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Poor eyesight * Shani-6 rules 2-eyesight
HT's eyesight was compromised by childhood diphtheria (6) Yet, Truman managed to serve as a WW-1 military commander and worked as a popular machine politician. Remembering names and faces is critical to those jobs. Therefore, his eyesight was likely not a major handicap. His spectacles successfully corrected most of the deficiency and gave him a elder, scholarly appearance.

Using an Act of War to Stop the War * Ketu-Rahu bhukti
"I knew what I was doing when I stopped the war ... I have no regrets and, under the same circumstances, I would do it again." ~~ Truman, 1963
Truman 'dropped the bomb' on Japan in August-1945, killing and maiming millions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The WW-2 Japanese military had already killed an estimated 6-10 million people in Asia, including a genocide of approximately 6 million Chinese and Southeast Asian peoples. Truman stood firm in his decision to attack Japan, despite some military opinions that the Allies had already won the war..
Zukra-Rahu bhukti * Congress created presidential pensions in 1958
After leaving the US Presidency in their elder years, HT and his wife Bess had very little personal wealth and were nearly impoverished until the Congress wrote a law creating a pension for ex-presidents. (Previous presidents had always hailed from wealthy families; the law was never needed before the humble-born Truman held the POTUS.)
Despite his years of work in the public service, Truman and his wife Bess retired from the presidency into a state of penury. Historically it had been presumed that only the independently financially privileged whose retirement would be cushioned by investments would hold the highest national offices. other men of modest means had served as POTUS but they had died in office or shortly afterward. Truman was the first surviving "test case" who lived 20 years after retirement.
