BPL commentary

For Chitra-Tvastri 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 Mangala-ruled paradigm of Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Thula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Zukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. They are often found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

Mom = Mrs. Bessie Lillian Gordy Carter, a public health nurse and community figure. Mom was related to the legendary music producer Berry Gordy of Motown fame. Mom lived in the Whitehouse during her son's POTUS tenure, gaining national attention as the no-nonsense "Miss Lillian"


Rahu-Karkata = JC served the national defense as a USA Navy officer. Karkata = navy, defense

Chandra interacting with Shani-1 + Rahu in bhava-10

Chandra in Visaka suggests that he does not fear violent environments, but feels confident (Guru ruled Visaka) to bring higher understanding into shocking (Visaka) circumstances.

Carter was able to enter oppositional-defiant environments ruled by tribal or strongman cultures, and without stimulating resentment make positive impact upon the fairness and transparency of the elections process. The Carter Center's successes in election monitoring gained worldwide positive attention.

Karkata 10th-from-Chandra suggests a career in housing, shelter, patriotism, agriculture, foundational schooling policing and defense, and loyalty to the home culture.

  • Mr. Carter served as a US-defense naval officer (1947-1953). He served as head of US Armed Forces during POTUS-39 (1976-1980). His primary public role became the Chandra-oriented Habitat for Humanity organization which provided family housing.


Nishturabhashi yoga indicates that Mr. Carter was emotionally restrained due largely to his mother's disciplinary approach . Shani is yogakaraka for the Thula lagna which somewhat mitigates the most oppressive potential of Shani-yuit-Chandra, instead focusing the electro-magnetic emotional austerities upon the social behaviors. Miss Lillian was said to be punitively ethical, tightly organized, and pro-education.

POTUS-39's mother Miss Lillian was a professional nurse and a community activist. His mother, a biracial person, was considered to adhere to an extremely strict standard of personal moral conduct. (Chandra morality) For mixed-race persons in the American South of her era, such a rigid level of emotional containment (Chandra-Shani) would have been pragmatically necessary for obtainment and maintenance of social honor .

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kumbha * vigorous pursuit of community activism * warrior for economic progress * proactive linking * push toward regulated systems * pursues profitable roles * dominating energy in social networking * conquest of marketplace interactions * champion of distributed associations

Mangala rules radical Chitra

Mangala-Kumbha rules 7 negotiation. Carter has engaged in conflict (Kuja) mediation throughout the world. Using his prestige as POTUS-39, he has achieved measured success in non-violent resolutions of major conflicts and human rights abuses. He has been able to enter highly charged environments where no other leader has ever succeeded. Also confident Chandra in Visaka Shakti

JC's powerful uttama-Shani-1 = born at the precise degree of exaltation (10 degrees).

Intense Chandra-yuti-Shani drishti into bhava-7 marriage suggests that the spouse is also patriotic (Chandra) and socially mature (Shani). During his long public life, JC consistently expressed a clear view that equality in marriage and professional life was a natural function of Christian life.

Thrilling hunger for high-recognition, empowered reputation, respect. Ambition of the father's family

mutual drishti between Guru-Vrizchika-2 and Rahu-Karkata-10 brings values-based funding for his social projects

Rahu in bhava-10 occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

Rahu in bhava-10 intakes drishti from social justice icon uttama-Shani in Bhava-1

Rahu occupies 7th-from-Ketu during Ketu Mahadasha

1975-1980, JCr was criticized internationally for giving his wife Rosalynn (7th-from) too much purchase in his presidential decisions. In the modern era when "special ambassadors" have become commonplace, it would be less controversial. Yet, in 1975-1980, there was a conservative furor about a wife-and-mother (Karkata) political outsider (Rahu) being granted leadership empowerments.

Particularly in the third world countries that were unfamiliar with concept of women leaders and unaccustomed to the northern culture of shared responsibilities and respectful equality in marriage, RSC's ambassadorial ministry and representational authority were perceived as an insult to "real" leaders in those fine lands.

Among his international critics, JC was considered to be a weak man (Ketu) unable to "speak softly and carry a big stick" in the preferred braggadocio style of POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt .

Ketu * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Makara-Draco * dissociates from social authority, incomplete hierarchy, empty rules, dissolute laws, severed execution of duties, not limited by conventions, ignores restriction on rank and status, applies structure to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the homestead, absentee mother-figure, disregards local customs, dissolved property boundaries, wanders from home, irrelevance of the established folkways. One abandons the nationality, dismisses the parents, walks away from the ancestral routines.

Shani in Bhava-1 + Rahu in bhava-10

After Shani matures at age 36, there is a vast increase in comprehension of the rules of the social order and then secondarily after Rahu matures age 48, there is a vast increase in understanding of the vicissitudes of human passions, ambitions, and opportunistic desires. With uttama-Shani-1 drishti to Rahu-10, one may expect to achieve social maturity after age 48.

From the Budha-Shani bhukti

(JC age 48) and forward into the Ketu Mahadasha, Carter uses his knowledge not for personal gain but rather for the common gain of the stability of the social order benefitting large groups of humanity . Rahu-10 utilizers his outsider status (as an elections observer) to accomplish the social-ordering goals.

The Ketu President

During 1976-1980 his age 52-56, Jimmy Carter endured what many consider a failed presidency from Ketu-Surya bhukti

until Ketu-Budha chidradasha.

Carter's pre-presidential life as a military submarine commander, agribusiness peanut farmer, and governor of Georgia received more public approval than his presidency. His post-presidential work and respect have also been marked by high dignity. It was mainly the Ketu Mahadasha that fell below social-material expectations.

Rahu occupies 10 and Ketu in Bhava-4 is ruled by a Yogakaraka uttama-Shani-1 in 10th-from-Ketu. When samchara Rahu transited Karkata, this impetus triggered an extraordinary mechanism for the one-hit-wonder that was the Carter Presidency.

Carter's post-presidential life as an international democratic elections supervisor and icon of the famed Habitat for Humanity organization, along with other charitable (Chitra-4) leadership activities, especially his work to ensure fair (Shani-Thula) elections in emerging democracies, continues to receive widespread public respect.

Ketu-Makara does the bidding of His powerfully exalted ruler Professor Shani-1 who produces a powerful, unyielding Panchamahapurusha Sasya Yoga. Although Ketu's ruler Professor Shani gives a relentless work ethic and a profound agenda for social justice, Ketu-4 himself is quite detached. Ketu-4 often signals a busy executive incarnator who is rarely at home.

Ketu naturally has spiritual agency rather than material or political agency, but considering the dignity of Shani and the ambitions of Rahu, it is not impossible that the normally dissociative 7-year era of Ketu Mahadasha would have produced the Carter Presidency. Shri Ketu Shri Ganesha removes all ego-attachments which are obstacles to spiritual realization.

Certain nebulous, unhooked Ketu features are nevertheless in evidence. While serving at POTUS-39, Carter did not develop an international power base of ego-motivated world leaders. Rather, his service was based in parochial ethical convictions (Karkata-10) based in the Baptist Christian traditions of his upbringing. To observers, Mr. Carter seemed either unwilling or unable to expand his leadership vision past that local tradition into a truly international perspective. It seemed like he lacked the ego-willfulness (Ketu; that most believed was a necessary tool for maintaining US domination of other lands and their leaders.

Most importantly in the minds of the voters however, Carter seemed to lack engagement (Ketu) with domestic concerns (4) such as cost of living, transportation (gasoline crisis), schooling, and security (4)

Often cited by historians as the least popular or accessible president since POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge , Jimmy Carter was considered a weak chief executive who seemed constrained by principle and generally lacked the support of the Congress.

Lacking structural support Ketu-Makara

He was a political outsider (Rahu-10) who entered the POTUS job without the hundreds of loyal appointments that normally provide the political infrastructure supporting a presidential effectiveness. He offered the Chief-of-Staff job to two of his campaign advisers, but they both refused it. Therefore he operated the Cabinet without an intermediary Chief-of-Staff.

Ketu broken chain.

The main crises which marked his term as POTUS-39 were fuel supply-chain called "energy crisis" and housing issues (4, housing). Critics of the Carter Administration continue to insist that the Energy Crisis did not exist, and its policies reflected simple supply-chain incompetence in the Carter leadership.

He was perceived as ineffective and was quickly succeeded by an insider from the well-heeled Republican establishment, POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan .

Feminine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu * Slaviztha * Avittam * Hrsikesha

BPL commentary

For Dhaniztha births of a feminine 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 ladies endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These women are athletic, goal-oriented, and competitive. Those who have chosen a feminine-form birth may find themselves surrounded by invigorating but dominating masculine figures. Male colleagues may be surprised to discover that despite their feminine style, Dhaniztha ladies are equal and serious competitors. Their sexual energies are alive, and may be used to advantage.

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 movement. They need a strong beat and a high achievement goal. When Dhaniztha ladies choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and men.

In the modern era, Dhaniztha ladies may use Mangala's kinetic energies to ascend the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani,. They strive for alpha-dominant positions. All fields of competitive endeavor are open to the Avittam-born, including athletics and contests. Often preferring applied scientific careers with measurable outcomes, Dhaniztha-born are also found in all types of systematic intervention into their environment, such as social engineering, political engineering, or materials engineering.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, feminine Vasu champions are often surrounded by lawful, systematic, and timid folk who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascending drive. They are often respected in the boss role due to theie ability to dominate the field of activity while keeping the respect of their male peers.

Vasu-born ladies face particular challenges in Kuja's aggressive, male-dominated environments. Their career pathway is studded with rough dominators using physical force and even brutality. Yet, a well-placed, vigorous Mangala, along with Shani's natural lawful patience, can bring Dhaniztha women to the peak of social recognition and economic achievement.

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 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 - especially communications -- this breed competes aggressively for leadership. Their innovative actions may forcefully change the status quo in even the most entrenched environments. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Themes of conquest, pursuit, and achievement may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

Rosalynn Carter circa 1975

As a Navy wife, POTUS-pair-39 Mental Health 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter moved herself and her young family constantly from military base to military base. Surya-Simha-4 politics is bandesha-4 but Kuja is also the home-dissolving ruler-of-12 for Vrishabha nativities. The Carter Family lived in dozens of places, from humble huts to the USA Whitehouse; they rarely stayed more than five years in a single location. At her age 18, Rosalynn aborted her college education (Mangala-4) in order to marry the ambitious Mr. Carter on a promise (Kuja rules 7) of security and fun (Surya-4). Her mother was not pleased (Chandra-12 ruled by Kuja). Due to mutual Kuja-Shani drishti, her childhood home environment was considered respectable poverty. The overall home situation continued to be modest but stable, and governed by an persistent work ethic well into her 90's.

POTUS-pair-39 Mental Health 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter = mutual aspect between Mangala-Simha-4 and dig-bala Shani-Vrischika-7. She traveled and lived around the world (Mangala-4 house-shift energy) first as a Navy Wife then as the wife and special envoy of POTUS-39, then as a managing partner of Carter Foundation and other organizations. While the two spouses have clearly not agreed on every issue, they have been robust role-models for cooperation and mutual respect (Shani-7) within the marriage alliance.

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Simha * Khaga * Khagaya * air-moving
  • Suya in bhava-5 * swabhava * center of sparkling, poetic romance * intelligence for speculation * father-figure plays central, entitled roles * radiates brightly political celebrity * focus on theatrical glamour * genius for dramatic entertainments * eye on gambling and games * bright center of creative performance
  • Surya-yuti-Kuja * confidently progressive, bright warrior, creatively intelligent brother-figures, self-reflexive political pursuits, champion of brilliant ideals, competitive father, entitled to conquer and win, radiantly pioneering


Surya-5-Simha yuti Mangala-5 . Surya is exceptionally strong in shad-bala.


Chandra * matrikaraka


  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit

  • Chandra in Bharani * comforted by carrying valuable burdens * protectors of assets, treasuries, contractual trust, natural resources, reserves
  • Chandra in classroom-1 * comfort in glowing incandescent embodiment, familiar with forward action, needs to feel the repeating pulse of physical movement, settled into the rhythm of invention, feeling for first-arrival, soothed by aristocracy, emotionally attuned to new birth, routine activities, undulating personality

Chandra-1 rules-4 Mrs. Carter = a self-identified Southern Protestant Christian and her ethnic, regional qualities (4) remained definitive

the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra = bhava-10 high-profile friends. Mrs. Carter was a close personal friend of POTUS-38 partner Betty Bloomer Ford



Married age 18 and although a capable individual with power to generate influential political initiatives, nevertheless remained deeply identified with marriage partnership

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Surya-yuti-Mangala in bhava-5 receives the disciplined constraint of Vrischika Shani-8

Mutual aspect of Shani with Mangala

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru rules Dhanuzya swamsha = doctrine, catechesis, paradigms of belief, philosophy, theory, guru, preaching, pope, proselyte, propagation of the faith

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Sweets-seeking Zukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also)

Alternatively, Zukra-nichha may indicate a ministry of service benefiting women with substance addictions, behavioral addictions, low self-esteem, or other imbalances. Mrs. Carter's ministry on behalf of mental illness is widely respected.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani in Vrizchika * heavy old secrets * obliged to uncover the camouflaged realities of mass transformation * pressured to regulate the flow of occult identity changes * must explore masked trauma * vital energy compression stress zone = genitals-anus * strictly imposed rules for confidential matters must be respected * must materialize dangerous hidden knowledge * must regulate the threat of disaster * must work with tightly regulated conditions of emergency * must accept the conventional methods of rigidly slow elder shamans * sustained conditions of proletarian revolution * must engage in continued discovery despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-10 (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious responsibilities. One must govern the old order. Must maintain the dignity of reputation. Cautious, conventional leadership. Tension in governance roles. Chronic weighty executive duties, heavy work portfolio sustains the social hierarchy; Oppressed by lack of freedom to choose social policies..Resistance to new rules. Resentment toward changes in authority. Intolerance toward unconventional leaders.. Governance fatigue. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as president, director, boss, governor, mayor.

Shani rules Makara = 10th-from-Chandra

Mutual aspect of Shani with Mangala can be oppressive.

Mangala insists on moving forward yet Shani resists change and Shani signals the native to persist in the union regardless of obstacles. Shani persists. Professor Shani as an agent of marriage feels obliged to absorb the stress of Mangala's perpetual battering competitiveness and restlessness into the marriage union without permitting a break-up.

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

  • Rahu-Mithunaya * shimmering illusion of cooperation * craving for conversation * mask of messaging * extraordinary explanations * ambitious administration * preposterous propaganda * fascinating evangelism * marvelous advertising and photographs * unusual ensembles * exciting cohort * mesmerizing instructions * over-reaching management * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of information delivery, scripts, documentation, business planning, commercial transactions * seeks privilege via communicator-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-5 * passion for politics, celebrity, games * in swabhava of Splendid Surya, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual children; out-of-bounds creativity, and amplified poetic romance; Risk-rewarding Rahu generates a charismatic individuality, center-of-attention displays of creative genius. Desires a special, important role in performance arts, literary arts, entertainments, royalty roles, pageantry, celebrity events, or dramatic splendor. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious children and lovers. Rahu the Poseur may wear the persona (mask) of a dramatic actor, a celebrated intellectual, or a politician. Craves the center stage, the lights, the glory. Rahu-5 trespasses the cultural boundaries in matters of unique personal creativity, children, speculation, gaming. Seeks flamboyant fashion, exceptional offspring, and the thrill of political theatre.

Ketu * * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka


Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter in 2014, married for 70 years
