BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poets romantic lovers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator
  • Surya in bhava-10 * digbala * center of hierarchy, brightly governing, intelligence for regulation, focus on social order, regulatory entitlements, eye on high position


Reagan's father was an Irish-American Roman Catholic travelling shoe salesman with a noted alcohol problem. Observers noticed domestic violence, irregular employment, and insufficient family funds. Although dad was at home occasionally and known to his sons, he was primarily an absentee figure (12).

Mangala-9 is generally unfortunate for the father.

Political Intelligence

Surya-12 occupies the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = direction via invisible intelligence.

Although weakened in Makara-12, Suryai-Makara-Draco receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from Surya's ruler nichha-Shani-3 . Reagan experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas but rather by his ability to communicate the corporate talking points.

Surya in 10th-from-Chandra suggests thatReagan's political intelligence (Surya) was walled away from public visibility, and likely controlled by a cohort of institutional managers (3) represented by Shani-Chandra-Rahu-3.

The former president of the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild and product spokesperson for corporate advertisers, Reagan did not have a strong personality. Rather, he was a Master of the Message. A robustly healthy and handsome (Zukra-1) communicator (3) he took direction from invisible (12) authorities.


From a psychic perspective, Reagan -- like Lincoln -- is considered to be a walk-in. The original person was not happy with the current life unfolding, becme suicidal, and offered the body-identity to a transient agent. This agent had a crucial task: to collapse the USSR. The transient agent occupied the body successfully. From a basis of zero political experience, Reagan was resoundingly elected to two terms as California Governor, followed by two terms as POTUS-40. His personal diaries for those sixteen years of elite governance empowerment are filled with dribble such as "made a few telephone calls today", indicating that he was not making conscious executive decisions, and he had minimal understanding of what was happening around him.He did what he was told, and looked good doing it. The Berlin Wall fell. Once the primary mission was accomplished, his mentality gradually dissolved in the final years of the second term, and following the exit of the guest agent, the identity-less body vegetated in a prolonged state of deep dementia until the artificially sustained organic systems finally ceased functioning.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Meza * comforted by rhythmic forward pursuit
  • Chandra in burdened 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, innovation, first-arrival, aristocracy, soothed by new birth, routine movements, undulating personality
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted, sensitive to seniority figures, needs austerity, feels like a regulator
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient, sensitive to exotic figures, need opportunities, feels unusual, exceptional

MOTHER = highly complex and demanding bond

Reagan claimed to have been devoted to his mother, but she could not have been an easy parent. Mom Nelle Wilson Reagan was a powerful influence in her younger son's life. An Irish-American housewife and amateur dramatist, Nell was deeply involved in her Disciples of Christ religious congregation, participating in church management and communications (Guru-9 drishti to Chandra-3).

L-6 matrikaraka Chandra occupies bhava-3 communication, cohort, entourage. Mom was also an enthusiastic dramatist in local theatre who earned pleasant reviews in the local newspapers for her work in local ensemble (3) theatre productions.

\Bharani-Somana-yuti-Shani-nichha would suggest that mom demanded social status and Bharani-Somana-yuti-Rahu-Bharani would suggest that while she was enforcing the rules (Shani) she was also breaking the rules (Rahu). Mom would have been passionate (Rahu) about social mobility (Shani hierarchies) via financial achievement (Bharani).

The harsh disciplinary implications of nishturabhashi yoga while adding complexity to the mother's character is nonetheless significantly relieved via Guru-in-kendra from Chandra. Reagan's father appears to have had a very minimal effect on his character, as indicated by the invisible father Surya-12. However his mother was a force of nature. the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra indicates friends, suggesting that even more than mother-and-son, Reagan and his mom were friends.

Brother 11-from-Chandra

Both Ronald Reagan and his only sibling, his elder brother Neil Reagan, represented by Ronald's Kumbha lagna = 11th-from-Chandra, earned a bachelor's degree in economics (Kumbha) from Eureka College This was the college of his mom's congregation = 11th-from-Chandra = Kumbha-Zukra. Like Ron, the older brother Neil Reagan started a radio management career in the Midwest. Neil then following Ron to Southern California, where both men developed materially successful careers in radio and television production.

Alliances, both personal and professional

Chandra is strongly influenced by Rahu-Ketu, by Guru, and by nishturabhashi Shani . Somana-opposite-Ketu indicates apathy toward the numerous partnerships, but Guru makes them numerous, and Rahu makes them passionate, and Shani makes them socially ordered. Nichha-Shani often indicates a family history of blood feuds or racism, and at least unconsciously a feeling of inferiority would have contributed to his later expedient (Rahu) bonding with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era.

For Kumbha births, Rogesha Chandra has a propensity to be involved in emotionally-conflicted situations.

Chandra's propensity to be electro-magnetic emotionally attracted to scenes of discord is amplified by risk-taking Rahu. Also disciplined, formalized and regulated Shani applies that relentless emotional need for social approval which characterizes nishturabhashi yoga. The extreme edge of Shani-fear is blunted by inclusive Guru drishti, but the Shani-Rahu-Chandra cluster remains emotionally prone toward the use of communicative abilities to obtain social approval Shani and privilege Rahu.MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

Two marriages are indicated by multiplier-disconnector Guru-yuti-Ketu residing in 7th-from-Chandra.

Both bhava-9 = marriage-1 Thula ++ bhava-4 marriage-2 Vrishabha are ruled by Zukra-1 = strong personal identification with both feminine partners.

Marriage is a complex experience due to nishturabhashi yoga with Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3.

First lifepartner Jane Wyman

His first life-partner was a famous Hollywood actress seen via 7th-from-Chandra-3 = bhava-9 drama (5th-from-5th). Chandra-yuti-Shani imposed an emotionally demanding, stressful drishti upon bhava-9 (wife-1). Also he would have experienced the almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to Ketu in bhava-9-Thula.

Second life partner POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan

Marriage-2 = 2nd-from-Chandra, bhava-4 = completely free of drishti.

For Chandra-3 nativities, the second marriage-mate is the anchor of the home.

Second wife was a home-based, security-oriented, parental figure seen via 2nd-from-Chandra-3. Mr. Reagan addressed his second wife as Mommy. Their marriage was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive. Nancy Davis Reagan functioned as a soberly nurturing caretaker (her Chandra-Pushya) and Mr. Reagan accepted that care. During the final POTUS-40 years coinciding with her protective Chandra Mahadasha, he slowly slipped into the Alzheimer's brain condition (his Shani-Mesha-3 brain). Nancy Reagan worked assiduously to shield her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny * her Shani-6 rules Pushya-Chandra.

Chandra, Career, and Mommy

10th navamsha = Karkata= nationalism, protectionism, ethnocentrism, conservative habitual routines

The husband with money-minded, values-conserving Chandra-Bharani well matches the wife-2 with Nancy Reagan's rule-oriented, serious-minded and class-conscious Pushya Chandra.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Dhanuzya * vigorous pursuit of humanistic worldview* push toward doctrinal expansion, proactive teaching-preaching, philosophical globalism
  • Mangala in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * drive toward doctrine, champion of a belief, pursuit of patronage, preaching dynamics, energized philosophical conquests, dominating father-figures
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal, potential for aggressive gestures, speech, and writing

Saravali Ch. 45, shloka 12-14 "Mars placed in friendly sign will make one protect the wealth of friends. "

Mangala-11 rules karma bhava-10 = one receives dynamic economic gain (11) from the activities of symbolic rulership (10). Reagan was not an autocrat, but Reagan was well compensated for his dramatic portrayal of an authoritative leader.

Promoted by his overseers as The Great Communicator Reagan's Kuja ruling 3-10 is amplified by Rahu-3 drishti into the Budha-yuti-Mangala pair for leadership by meetings, short-term travel, dinner parties, and making announcements. Not decisions -- announcements. The decisions were made by corporate agency of 10th-from-Chandra.

Rahu drishti to Mangala. His style was always warm, alive, and pulsing with physical energy. Not necessarily wisdom. But plenty of energy!

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Dhanuzya * priestly communications, articulation of theoretical, doctrinal, philosophical beliefs
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy, social participation networks, community, friendship, interlinked systems
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * articulation of forward action, message of innovation and forward movement, outspoken

atmakaraka vargottamsha Budha rules 5-8

Budha-11 rules 3-6 from Chandra-Meza

Budha-11 occupies in 9th-from-Chandra

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Thula * many trades, exchanges, much negotiation, believes in justice, doctrine of contractual exchange
  • Guru in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto *swabhava * many doctrines, multiple beliefs, much preaching, multiple father-figures, many guru-professor
  • Guru-yuti-Ketu upeksha-karaka * multiple disregarder-disperser figures, many disconnections, much surrender

As ruler of 11 residing in 11th-from-11th while ruling 11-and-2, Brihaspati becomes a very significant dhanakaraka suggesting exceptionally high levels of financial well-being

Age 46-62 Guru Mahadasha * Guru-yuti-Ketu * Guru-9 ideology receives drishti of Chandra-Rahu-Shani-3 communications.

In 1966 with absolutely no political experience, Mr. Reagan was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors to deliver the message. He catapulted to the governorship from unlikely beginnings. Formerly a minor screen actor, the head of the screen actors guild, and then a television advertising prompt-reader, Reagan's it was literally an overnight change for him to step into a top authority role as Governor of California.

Due to a weakened Surya-Makara-12 and Guru-yuti-Ketu, it can be surmised that Ronald Reagan was -- like Illinois fellow POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln before him -- a psychic walk-in for this sudden, celebrated new role. The world was on the verge of WW-3, a powerful intervention was needed, and an experienced, ego-engaged politician would have failed to follow orders. Reagan was the perfect fit.

While others with more skill and focus would be laboring behind the scenes to make it happen, it was Reagan who presided over the collapse of the Berlin Wall, which marked the end of the Cold War and minimized the threat of the global annihilation.

Reagan's his lack of experience notwithstanding, he was handsome, cheerful, and well-liked. In 1970, he was re-elected to a second term of governorship.

Yogakaraka Zukra receives drishti of Guru-9-ideology-politics. Once the Guru-Zukra period started his symbolic spokesperson career seemed charmed by good hair and a sparkling smile. Chandra rogesha also receives drishti of Brihaspati, energizing the inclusive influence of Guru upon Reagan's familiarity with and ability to deftly deflect most forms of conflict and scandal. Guru in bhava-9 suggests multiple father-figures, including perhaps those who shaped his ideological position (Guru-9).

As the ruler of bhava-2, Guru also rules 11th-from-2nd-from-Chandra = signifying the social network emitting from the second marriage. Bhava-2 Meena second marriage = his Meena second wife Nancy Davis. Nancy's parents had been close friends (11) of POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower and POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Doud Eisenhower. The Guru mahadasha brought into full flower the results of the social network of the second lifemate, and Reagan's career was directed by his second wife's stepfather the Republican kingmaker-fundraiser Loyal Davis. Dr. Davis is represented in Mr. Reagan's nativity by Simha-7 political career = 8th-from-9th-from-4th (stepfather of the second wife).

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Kumbha * appreciation of social networks, pleasures of friendly arrangements, aesthetic of scientific, economic linkage
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; enjoys athletic, vigorous physical equity, appreciation of new birth * identified with partnership

Zukra-1 accepts drishti of Guru-9, connoting ideological humanism and Thula-style traditional diplomacy. Zukra-1 yogakaraka ruler of 4-9, ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, and ruler of Ketu taking drishti of Guru, signifies a handsome, very pleasant and pleasure-seeking, rather disengaged, relaxed, large-bodied, predominantly material, physicalized personality.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Meza * nichha * old feuds, pressured invasions, old competitions, pressure in the head-brain, imposed competition, must conquer with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-3 * must message, communicate, explain; cautious, conventional cohort; chronic mental depression
  • Shani-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * resistance against protection, emotional discipline. constrained flow
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu* resistance against ambition, disciplined risk, constrained

Shani + Rahu + Chandra create an Endurance powerhouse in bhava-3 emphasizing the promotion of opportunistic ambition (Rahu) via steady and systematic ability to accomplish (Shani) tasks of organization, argumentation, planning, and policy (3).

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

  • Rahu in bhava-3 * privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging, publishing; seeks a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Opportunistic, ambitious sibling-cousin or cohort.
  • Rahu-Meza * mask of competitive, pioneering, urgent force
  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu * amplified emotion, exotic habits, tricky comforts, opportunistic mother
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, exotic rules, tricky rules, opportunistic elders

Rahu-3 is constrained by Slow Shani but Rahu drishti to 7-9-11 amplifies 7-relationships 9-paradigm of belief 11-social-economic participation

  • either by yuti or drishti RAHU engages the lords of nine of 12 total bhava

  • mutual aspect of Rahu-Guru

  • Rahu drishti to Budha-Mangala marketplace gains

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

The extraordinary charisma that Reagan sustained from high school until his retirement, can be largely attributed to Rahu-3 the ambitious communicator working together with Budha the conversational announcer.

Both when governor of California and when POTUS-40, the hallmark of Reagan's administrative style was his enthusiasm for the physical body and its energy, especially personal appearances and announcements.

For example, when naming a new group of state department employees to embassy positions (an honor for them) Reagan personally telephoned each employee. In his diary, he mentions with some pride that no president before him had ever taken the time to make personal calls.

Consider Budha working together with Rahu-3. Reagan was not calling to have a conversation; he was calling to make an announcement.

Reagan intuitively knew that his personal voice was much more exciting and self-promoting than a signed paper letter.

Distinctive features of the nativity

POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan * Guru-yuti-Shani-Simha in 3rd-from-Chandra * her family liked her husband POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan. They were not scandalized by the 1950's gossip that he was a divorced Hollywood actor who married Nancy at the end of her first trimester; rather, her actress mother and her stepdad recognized Ron's potential as a political puppet, and they invested their substantial financial and social resources into promoting her husband's political career.

POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan * Guru-yuti-Shani endured separation from both parents for her first nine years, while her father disappeared and her divorced mother left young Nancy to stay with relatives. After her mother remarried a socially prominent second husband, the store of resources expanded. Mrs. Reagan retained the early trauma of deprivation in the form of Borderline Personality Disorder, but the physical survival issues receded.

Originally she pursued a career as a Hollywood actress. However, despite generous funding from her parents, Nancy's thespian aspirations seemed to gain little traction.

identity changes. A maternal aunt-and-uncle raised little Anne Frances (later called Nancy) for 9 years while the travelling-actress mother visited occasionally. Budha-Budha swabhukti reunited Nancy with her relocated and remarried mother. Mother became a socialite and patron (9) of political funding Pushya-Chandra-9. Nancy moved from her childhood home to her Mother's new home in an exclusive Chicago suburb, became a socially connected young debutant, and attempted to launch a career as a Hollywood actress. After her marriage to an actor with political aspirations, Nancy became the essential secret-keeping, camouflaging partner in a two-person political powerhouse career.

Mrs. Reagan was reputed (and chastised) for her use of astrological forecasts.

Simha-Shani is particularly associated with the difficulties inherent in regulating (Shani) the brightly lit, flamboyant, center-stage political-entertainment environments. She was accused of criminal (6) impropriety in official duties (Shani) because she accepted millions of dollars worth of untaxed designer clothing and jewels into her personal wardrobe inventory (Rahu-2 ruled by Zukra). However due to Harsha yoga, there was no material consequences following the accusations.

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Mithunaya * Mithra * neighbor, companion
  • Surya in bhava-3 * center of commerce, intelligence for reports, announcements, descriptions, * brightly explaining, administrative entitlements, focus on communication, eye on management of messaging
  • Surya-yuti-Chandra * confidently sensitive, bright comforter, entitled to parent, radiantly rhythmic
  • Surya-yuti-Kuja * confidently progressive, bright warrior, entitled to conquer, radiantly pioneering
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, radiantly descriptive

SURYA _ Chandra + Kuja + Budha = Four Father-figures

Graha yuti Surya often suggest additional father-figures.

  1. 21 deg Surya (Puna) rules 10 = pitrikaraka = original (bio) father-figure
  2. 29 deg Chandra (Puna) rules-4 = uncle, provides the foundational security of childhood
  3. 23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 3-6 = third father-figure = adoptive father, mother's second husband
  4. 19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 1-8 = her own husband

Father-figure-1 = 21 deg Surya (Puna) rules 10 = pitrikaraka = original (bio) father-figure

  • Nancy's bio-dad was a car salesman Surya in bhava-3 Mithunaya. Although he provided her physical body (1) her parents were divorced (6) soon after Nancy's birth. He played no further conscious role in her life.

Father-figure-2 = 29 deg Chandra (Puna) rules-4 = uncle, provides the foundational security of childhood

  • From infancy until fourth grade Shani-Ketu period, age 9, Nancy's maternal uncle, the husband of her mother's sister, served as Nancy's father-figure. During Ketu period, she morphed into a new identity due to her Ketu-1 configuration.
  • Mrs. Reagan recounted that for the first nine years of her life, all of her friends and neighbors believed that her foster-dad uncle was actually her father. During these years she was called by her birth name, Anne Frances. Starting with Shani-Zukra period, she was called Nancy Davis.

Father-figure-3 = 23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 3-6 = third father-figure, surgeon Dr. Loyal Davis (physician 6) = adoptive father, mother's second husband

  • When Nancy was age-14 in 1935, she was legally adopted by her stepfather = mother's second husband, Dr. Loyal Davis. He was a wealthy Republican Party donor whose political influence was powerful .Nancy became a social debutant.

Father-figure-4 = 19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 1-8 = her own husband.

  • Kuja = lagnesha ++ Kuja rules 8-transformation of identity. Kuja is also Ronald Reagan's lagnesha, ruler of his Chandra+Rahu+Shani-1 complex. Reagan promoted a Mesha-champion image of active outdoor life, healthful vigor, horse-riding, and eternal California sunshine. He was also involved in secret activities (8).

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

atmakaraka * Ronnie and Mommie

  • Chandra-Mithunaya * comforted by communicatively signaling, rhythmic messaging transactions
  • Chandra in Punarvasu * comforted by restoration of abundance * protectors of sensitive wise instruction, expansive details, generous planning, philosophical explanations
  • Chandra in classroom-3 * comfort in cohort, familiar with communication, conversation, parlor, soothed by siblings, intuitive information delivery, routine messaging; undulating signals
  • Somana-yuti-Surya * Emotionally entitled, sensitive to charismatic figures, needs centrality, feels like a king
  • Somana-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally competitive, sensitive to brotherly figures, needs movement, feels like a champion
  • Somana-yuti-Budha * Emotionally communicative, sensitive to sibling figures, needs to evangelize, feels like a messenger


Nancy's mother was a cinema actress who re-married a political kingmaker + teaching surgeon named Loyal Davis. Chandra-Mithunaya + Surya + Kuja + Budha shows the complexity of the mother's character and the diversity of mom's communication skills.

Mama abandoned little Anne (later called Nancy) for nine years, to be raised by relatives. After her mother's gainful remarriage, Nancy rejoined her mother during Shani-Budha period.

While perceived as invasive and controlling (Kuja) her methods were generally successful in managing the numerous people and processes that she oversaw during her husband's eight years as California governor and another eight years as POTUS-40.

Nancy Reagan vigorously (Mangala) helped to promote (Kuja) the market-driven capitalistic, anti-public-welfare ideology of her step-father and later her husband and his financial supporters

Her 10th-from-Chandra = the invisible Bhava-12 Meena = the power behind the throne

During Zukra-Budha period, she did not ask for help and she did not accept advice. She managed his schedule and handled his communications. She hired and fired staff, including high-ranking aides and department heads, by simply telling her husband what to do, and watching him do it. Generally, he did as she required.

Naturally, Mrs. Reagan's precise, detailed, and often aggressive (Kuja) management style alienated the people who had been elected or appointed to provide the president with information, advice, or perspective to support his executive decisions. However those close to the Gipper realized that he was not able to make decisions no matter who might be supporting him.

POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan suffered from Alzheimer's disease, which was detected in the earliest stages before a formal diagnosis, in the early 1980's. As his brain disease progressed, Mr Reagan required constant care and delicate scheduling, which Nancy Reagan exclusively provided to her beloved Rahu-7 spouse.

Her compensating response to his increasing disability was to tightly control access to the president. Whether his aides agreed or disagreed with her behavior, she did not care. (her Ketu-1)

Many recognized a repeat of the 1940's debility of POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt, when his wife Eleanor, his assistants and aides, all collaborated to present a facade of normalcy to the public when indeed POTUS-32 was gravely ill. Unlike FDR, Reagan was in excellent physical health and in no danger of death, but he had lost so much memory that there was considerable support for the policy of maintaining the best possible facade of normalcy.

Nancy Reagan's Shani-Ketu period began in spring-1987 when Reagan's lame-duck status (only 1 year remaining in his term) meant that he was not expected to produce much effort. Ketu continues to produce Mangala's results for Nancy due to Kuja-yuti-Ketu-1, so she continued to manage him as a puppet. By 1988 his memory was significantly in decline. The current VPOTUS soon-to-be- POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush was ready, willing and capable to lead but he needed access to the president, often blocked by a micromanaging Mrs. Reagan
