Masculine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

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."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

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

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator
  • Surya in bhava-3 * center of commerce, intelligence for reports, dramatic announcements, creative descriptions * self-referential instruction delivery * confident handcraft, splendid technology * entertaining explanations * administrative entitlements * focus on communication * eye on process management * iconic messaging * bright center of discourse * brilliant gesturing


Dad = Irish-American Roman-rite Catholic travelling shoe salesman Surya in bhava-3 sales.

Dad notably suffered from alcoholism = dharmesha Chandra occupies 6-disease. Observers noticed paternal occasions of domestic violence, irregular employment, and insufficient family funds. However, dad was at home occasionally and he was known to both of his sons.

Surya-Makara-Draco = generally a weakened location for Surya unless His ruler is strong. Savitra's ruler Shri Shani = nichha + Shani is overwhelmed by an ambitious, empowered Rahu.

Savitra's ruler Shani = located in bhava-6 = strict Shani + hungry Rahu + needy Chandra = a emotionally complex, socially punitive yet striving, self-important (Rahu) father working a sales career which was ultimately less successful due to addiction.


Karmesha Surya occupies shad-ashtakya 6th-from-10th

Karmesha Savitri occupies 10th-from-Chandra

Although a milquetoast Surya-Draco in administrative bhava-3 might be expected to manifest as a corporate functionary, process regulator, or sales manager, RWR's Surya gets a remarkable boost from its position in 10th-from-Chandra.

A career announcer and product representative Surya in bhava-3 for giant corporations (Makara-Draco) and long-time manager of the actor's union, RWR 's political career did not start in the typical way. He did not start by winning local offices and small elections, building visibility and reputation. RWR entered zero election contests until 1966. At that juncture, the kingmakers put his name on the state ballot and California's Republican assets organized a win. In this way, a 67-year-old Hollywood commercial spokesperson with no political experience gained authority over the largest state economy in the USA and one of the top economies worldwide.

Governorship 1966-1974

Surya-Makara rules karmasthana, suggesting that RWR's executive authority (10) was expressed primarily via acts of management and administration (3). Famed for his hands-off management style and the notoriously over-simplfied One-Page Memo, RWR's dicision-making (Surya) protocol consisted mainly of distributing the effective decision-making authority tamong his top-level deputies, and looking good doing it.

Surya-Makara-Draco = generally a weak but orderly placement. Coming to the governorship at age 67 from a foundation of zero previous political or institutional experience, RWR carried in neither prejudice nor information. It was often insinuated that RWR possessed only a weak grasp of the legislative issues which defined California's political climate. Surya in bhava-3 hands, handshakes, management.

RWR seemed always ready to smile for a photo opportunity, speak a word of warm praise, or extend a firm handshake. If instructed (3) by his handlers to hire or fire, he reliably followed orders.

More power than it seems = smiling, non-committal Surya in bhava-12

Surya-12 = Nancy's Dad

Nancy Davis had a complex childhood with three father-figures. Yet RWR recognized only the third father-figure = her stepdad Loyal Davis, a major Republican political patron. 9th-from-2nd-from-RWR's Chandra = dad of 2nd wife = Surya in bhava-12

Although Nancy's Dad was not the exclusive funding agent, Dr. Loyal Davis consistently promoted (Surya) RWR to his king-making associates. They found handsome, sociable, ambitious RWR to be a suitable personality for their governance-puppet purposes.

Surya in bhava-12 emerges from invisibility and gains superior leadership strength in the emotionally dignified, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra .

Surprising to many due to his spacey, nice-guy demeanor, RWR became an effective agent in the international (12) process leading to the tear-down of the Berlin Wall. He is credited (Surya credit) with personally helping to end the Cold War.

Although Surya-Makara-Draco is weakened at birth, Apollo receives a powerful regulating, enduring, hard-working 10th-drishti from ruler nichha-Shani-3 messaging, communications, announcements.

RWR = Walk-in

From a psychic perspective, Reagan -- like Lincoln -- is considered to be a walk-in. According to the story, the original person was not happy with the current life unfolding, becomes suicidal, and offers the body-identity to a transient agent. Similar to Lincoln's task to end the Civil War and abolish slavery, RWR's walk-in 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 popular 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.

RWR did what he was told, and Zukra-1 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 POTUS term, and following the exit of the guest agent, the identity-less body vegetated in a prolonged state of deep dementia until the 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-6 accustomed to nursing + caretaking * comforted by service ministry * familiar with animosity * acculturated to accusation * accustomed to litigation, indictments * needs to feel the repeating pulse of domestic + interpersonal conflict * emotionally attuned to be helpful *settled into the rhythm of problematics * seeks formulaic remedies * soothed by medication *suffers routine ailments * undulating disagreements
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted * pressured by punitive authority figures * sensitive to class boundaries * soothed by structure * needs rigid routines * heavy maternal workload * comfortable with elders * familiar with strict hierarchies * mother emotionally limited * needs rules * feels like a worker
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient, sensitive to exotic figures, needs exciting opportunities, soothed by unusual environments, undulating desires, craves nurturing, feels exceptional


  • Chandra-Bharani has a need to acquire treasuries, and feels comfortable in activities of wealth-collecting + asset preservation..

MOTHER = highly complex, demanding bond

RWR claimed to have been devoted to his mother = bandhesha Zukra-1, She may have been an intensely demanding parent, but as adults, Reagan and his mom were friends.

Yet, according to the condition of Somana-yuti-Shani -nichha ++ Somana-yuti-Rahu , mom could not have been an easy parent.

Nelle Wilson Reagan = an Irish-American housewife and amateur dramatist. Nell was deeply involved in her Disciples of Christ religious congregation, participating in church management and communications Chandra in classroom-3 .

Rogesha matrikaraka Chandra is ruled by Mangala ++ Budha-yuti-Mangala. Budha rules 5 = Mom's local theatre roles earned pleasant reviews in their small-town newspaper.

MOTHER Chandra-Bharani + Rahu-Bharani + Shani-Azvini (nichha)

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

Adding complexity to the mother's character, the harsh emotional withholding and disciplinary implications of nishturabhashi yoga = significantly relieved via Guru-in-mutual-drishti-with Chandra+SHani+Rahu.

Elder BROTHER * Neil Reagan = 11th-from-Chandra

RWR's only sibling, elder brother Neil Reagan = represented by Ronald's Zukra-1-Kumbha = 11th-from-Chandra.

Neil Reagan earned a bachelor's degree in economics (Zukra-Kumbha) from Eureka College This was the college of his mom's faith congregation = 11th-from-Chandra = Kumbha-Zukra. Like RWR, elder brother Neil Reagan started a radio management career (3) in the Midwest. Neil then followed Ron to Southern California, where both men developed materially successful careers in radio and television production.


Somana-yuti-Rahu mutual drishti with Guru-yuti-Ketu, compounded by nishturabhashi Shani .

Generally the more graha which are aligned upon the R-K axis, the more one experiences the volatility of R-K's attraction-repulsion polarity.

Somana-opposite-Ketu indicates apathy toward the numerous (Guru multiples) partnerships. Rahu makes them passionate, and Shani makes them socially ordered. The result is complex and contradictory relationship behaviors.

Nichha-Shani often indicates an akashic history of blood feuds or racism. RWR grew up in an Illinois era when Irish persons were denigrated (as shiftless alcoholics) by the previous wave of Scandi-German settlers. At least unconsciously, a feeling of social inferiority (felt by both him and his mom) would have contributed to his later expedient (Rahu) bonding with the controlling interests of the super-wealthy industrialists of his era.

Rogesha Chandra-Bharani * seeks comfort in disagreeable circumstances (such as employment conflicts)

Financially soothed Chandra-Bharani becomes uncharacteristically risk-rewarding via Rahu +++ Chandra = disciplined, formalized, regulated by Shani.

Relentless emotional need for social approval characterizes nishturabhashi yoga. +++ Shani rules 10th-from-Chandra.

The extreme edge of Shani-fear is blunted by inclusive Guru drishti, but the attraction-repulsion cycles of R-K put most relationships on a roller-coaster pattern.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership

Chandra-Meza marriages

For the Chandra-Meza nativity, the first marriage (Thula) and second marriage (Vrishabha) are both ruled by Zukra. Therefore, the condition of Zukra is paramount in determining the happiness of married life. For Reagan, Zukra-Kumbha-Satataraka in bhava-1 is well-disposed by bhava, by rashi, by nakshatra. Therefore equity and harmony in the first two marriages is generally expected.

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


  • alliance-1 = bhava-9 = 5th-from-5th celebrity, drama, fortunes, worldview contains Guru-yuti-Ketu suggesting a multiple-marriage pattern
  • Life-partner-1 = cinema star Jane Wyman = famed dramatist (9) . Chandra-yuti-Shani imposed an emotionally demanding, stressful drishti upon bhava-9 (wife-1). Also RWR would have experienced the almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to Guru-yuti-Ketu..


  • alliance-2 = bhava-4 parenting, household, Mother (this partner was addressed as Mommy)
  • Life partner-2 = POTUS-pair-40 Just Say No 1921-2016 Nancy Davis Reagan = = Vrishabha bhava-4. Mr. Reagan addressed his nursing-service second wife as Mommy.
  • Marriage was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive. Nancy Davis Reagan functioned as a soberly nurturing caretaker (4) Mr. Reagan accepted her tender care (her Chandra-Karkata).

Significant compatibility. in union-2

Favorable for dignity of public life. The husband RWR = money-minded, values-conserving Chandra-Bharani-The wife-2 NDR = status-hierarchy-minded, Shani-ruled Chandra in Pushyami .

During the final POTUS-40 years coinciding with NDR's protective Chandra Mahadasha, RWR slowly slipped into the Alzheimer's brain ailment = Shani-Mesha brain-3. Nancy Reagan worked assiduously to protect her ill and elderly husband from public scrutiny.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Dhanuzya * vigorous pursuit of humanistic worldview* push toward doctrinal expansion, proactive teaching-preaching, philosophical globalism
  • Mangala in bhava-11 * drive toward connectivity, pursuit of earnings, , marketplace dynamics, invasive networking, vigorously active friends, energized scientific systems, economic conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * communicative competitions, energized communication, dynamic reporting, outgoing force joins messaging signal, potential for aggressive gestures, speech, and writing

Athletic Kuja rules 10th navamsha = Mesha containing the Guru-yuti-Ketu pair

RWR's public profile was competitive, muscular (Mesha), generous (Guru) and vacant (Ketu)

From Dhanuzya radical lagna, Mangala-1 rules 5 + 12 ++ Kuja rules Chandra-5 politics

Rahu-5 drishti to Mangala-1 + karmesha Budha-1. Reagan's style was always warm, alive, and pulsing with physical energy. He was witty, fun, and a master of the clever repartee (Budha).

Shri Ketu and the Power of the Puppet

In 1966 his age 55 during Guru-Budha bhukti (Budha karmesha) with absolutely no political experience, Mr. Reagan was tapped by super-wealthy corporate sponsors to deliver the message.

Formerly a minor cinema actor, the head of the screen actors guild, and then a television advertising prompt-reader, Reagan catapulted to the California Governorship from incredibly unlikely beginnings.

Yet it becomes likelier if the role of Nancy Davis Reagan's Republican kingmaker stepfather is appreciated.

Nancy's parents were exceptionally well connected politically. They 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 .

Dr. Loyal Davis is represented in Reagan's nativity by the 8th-from-8th-from-9th from Vrishabha (2nd-from-Chandra marriage-2) because Dr. Davis is Nancy's third father (see her nativity below). Dr. Davis the Kingmaker = Ronald Reagan's political powerhouse Meza-5.

Due to a weakened Surya-Makara-2 in 10th-from-Chandra ++ Guru-yuti-Ketu (psychic permeability) it is possible 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 Governorship of the third largest economy in the world (California).

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. Know-nothing 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 lack of legislative experience notwithstanding, he was handsome, cheerful, and well-liked. In 1970 during Guru-Surya bhukti (Surya rules 9-elections), he was re-elected to a second term of governorship.

Guru-yuti-Ketu in navamsha-10 and also in bhava-11 allowed Reagan's chuckling, disengaged persona to appear to govern with a wise look (Guru), a head of thick shiny Hollywood hair, and a camera-ready smile.

Chandra-5 familiarity-to-the-public 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. He smilingly parroted the ideological (Guru) views of his sponsors while much of the social service and education infrastructure of the nation was being dismantled as "Reaganomics".

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; graciously feminine qualities of the appearance, enjoys athletic style of balancing, vigorous physical adjustments, appreciation of new birth * identified with beauty, equity, and fairness

Zukra-1 occupies the gainful 11th-from-Chandra = RWR could form fruitful friendships with women. As the Screen Actors Guild president, RWR would have needed to treat women dramatists as equals.

Zukra-Kumbha-1 accepts drishti of Guru-9, connoting ideological humanism and Thula-style traditional diplomacy.

All-American face, voice, mouth, teeth, thick dark hair, and square jaw.

Zukra-3 ruler of 6+ 11, ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, and ruler of Ketu+ Guru, signifies a handsome, very pleasant and pleasure-seeking, rather disengaged, relaxed, large-bodied, predominantly material, physicalized image (Zukra-3 advertising image)

Zukra attractively attends meetings, short-term travel, dinner parties, and makes announcements. Not decisions -- announcements.

Dhanayoga via Zukra

Dhanakaraka Zukra rules-11 ++ Zukra occupies the gainful 11th-from-Chandra

A former president of the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild and product spokesperson for corporate advertisers (3), Reagan was a Master of the Message. A robustly photogenic communicator (Zukra-3) he took instruction (3) from political handlers as easily as from Hollywood stage directors. The revenues flowed (11).

Promoted by his overseers as The Great Communicator , Ronald Reagan enjoyed a decades-long career as an announcer and product spokesman Zukra-3 . Many would say that his two terms as Governor of California and two terms as POTUS-40 were continuous extensions of his media personality representing the controlling interests of the financial elite.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Meza * nichha * heavy old blood-feuds * brain cramp, blocked bloodflow, muscle seizure * limits on innovation * must bear the weight of old aggressions * social limitations on individual championship * social restrictions on expression of new ideas * obliged to conform to the dominating winners * pressure to launch dry explosives * attacked by proletarian weaponry * must endure race-fighting * must materialize orderly competition for survival energies * must endure exhausting contests * insufficient initiative for pioneering invasions * at times, survival requires great effort * vital energy compression stress zone = head-brain * strictly imposed consequences of conquest * must continue to sustain forward movement despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-3 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious cohort. May prevent younger siblings. One must message, have to explain; cautious, conventional teamwork. Tense dialogue, communicative fatigue, chronic sadness or materialistic mentality; heavy legacy pressure against free communications, Tendency toward mental depression due to old, repeating thoughts. Limited hearing, deafness. Resistance to new projects and direct manipulation. Resentment toward changes of schedule. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles as sibling, manager, writer, editor, reporter, interpreter, or planner.
  • Shani-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * resistance to protectors * pragmatic routines * austere childhood home * limited creature-comforts * blocked nutrition * burden of guilt toward mother * emotional withholding * punitive parents * class-structured ethnicity * * uncomfortable discipline * oppressed sensitivities * dried flow * needs rules + regulations * frozen feelings * strict foundational schooling * proletarian culture
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * resistance against ambition, formally regulated cultural mixing, disciplined thrills, class-based limitations upon privilege, socially constrained opportunism, shimmering illusion of systematic conformity, irregular achievements, over-reaching elders, restricted risks

Lagnesha Shani-Meza occupies communications-3

RWR experienced increasing success not by promoting his own ideas but rather by his ability to enunciate the corporate talking points.

Shani rules and casts drishti into political Surya-Makara-12 residing in the career 10th-from-Chandra

Reagan was famously beholden to large corporate interests (Shani) during his entire career. He was not an autocrat. He was an actor. Reagan was well compensated for his dramatic (Surya) portrayal of an authoritative leader.

Shani + Rahu + Chandra create an Endurance powerhouse emphasizing the promotion of opportunistic ambition (Rahu) via steady and systematic ability to accomplish (Shani) tasks of messaging, gesture, product marketing, talking points.

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

  • Rahu-Meza-Arya * shimmering illusion of first-arrival * craving for superiority * exotic use of dominating force * mask of competitive action * mirage of innovative pioneering * over-reaching urgency * extraordinary muscularity * mesmerizing forward movement * unusual athleticism * fascinating conquests * marvelous warriorship * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of heroic action; winning of contests, natural chief * seeks privilege via champion-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, photography, journalistic reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging. Craves publication. Desires a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role. Over-reaching in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Exciting, opportunistic engagement with process management, manufacturing, business administration, instructions, information technology. Trespasses cultural boundaries of cohort-conversations and evangelistic proclamations. Ambitious character of the sibling-cousin, collaborative team, or touring ensemble.
  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu * amplified emotion, magnified familiarity exotic habits, tricky comforts, opportunistic mother, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking, hypnotic rhythms, emotionally attuned to cross-cultural mixing, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, magnified systematics, exotic rules, tricky regulations, opportunistic elders, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of strictly lawful structures

  • 9-beliefs
  • 11-marketplace economics Guru-Ketu
  • 1-personality Budha-Mangala

The extraordinary charisma that Reagan sustained from high school until his retirement, can be largely attributed to Zukra-1

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, RWR mentions with some pride that no president before him had ever taken the time to make personal calls.

Consider Budha-11 working together with Rahu-3. Reagan was not calling to have a conversation or make a decision; he was calling to make an announcement. With the added personal touch of Zukra-1. RWR would have intuitively known that his personal voice was much more exciting and self-promoting than a signed paper letter.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Thula * dissociates from bargaining, incomplete alliance, empty trades, surrendered trust, dispersed negotiations, ignores restriction on deal-making, applies balanced equity 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. One abandons the usual paradigm of belief, ignores the conventional understandings, delivers incoherent theory.
  • Ketu-yuti-Guru * surrendered abundance, abandoned expansions, numerous removals, disconnected teachers, incomplete wisdom, misunderstandings, unsustainable doctrine, apathetic preachers, disbelief, unfulfilled inspiration, impermanent philosophy, incomplete prosperity, spiritual liberation via immaterial faith. For wifely nativities, may dissolve the husband-figures.

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Anuradha * Maitra

BPL commentary

For Anuradha births of a feminine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Maitra, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instruction from the guardians of the civilizations of Gisgan-gusura. Their purpose is to impose safety in dangerous conditions via threat-containment and damage-control.

Hazard Regulation

Shani -ruled Maitra ladies benefit from the mutually supportive alliance between nakshatrapathi Shani and kalatra-karaka Zukra, and their energetic response to dangerous challenges is a gift from their Kuja lagnesha.

Anizham specialize in emergency repair of damaged relationships and arbitration of angry disputes. Aniruddha-born are known for safe handling of secret threats. This talent often places Anuradha women into high-stakes roles such as political or executive partner.

Professionally, Aniruddha women thrive where their ability to graciously impose lawful compliance in volatile circumstances is rewarded and respected. They often take elite positions in government regulatory agencies, in emergency medical professions, in law firms, and in the safety and insurance industries.

Themes of damage-control, risk mitigation, and orderly response to dangerous conditions may contextualize Anuradha's terrestrial experience.. Also applied to Chandra in Anuradha

The plethora of graha located in bhava-8 Mithunaya indicate the highly complex relationships between staff, information, and message.


along the path of her husband's career trajectory. NDR was a multi-function manager (Surya + Mangala + Budha) of all details large and small.

Surya-yuti-Kuja NDR was often criticized for her micro-management perfectionism.. While perceived as invasive and controlling (Kuja) her methods were generally successful in administering the variety of people and processes that she oversaw during her husband's eight years as California Governor ++ another eight years as POTUS-40.

Most importantly, by her shrewd and capable ability to play the de jure wifely role while being the de facto decision maker, NDR was able to camouflage (8) RWR's slip-sliding mental deterioration from the voters' awareness.

SURYA + Kuja + Budha = Three Father-figures

Graha yuti Surya often suggest additional father-figures..

  1. 21 deg Surya (Puna) rules 10 = pitrikaraka = original (bio) father-figure
  2. 19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 1-8 = 2nd father-figure = her mother's brother-in-law (husband of mother's sister = long term foster father)
  3. 23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 3+6 = third father-figure = adoptive father, mother's second husband = physician-6

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

  • Nancy's bio-dad was a car salesman Surya-Mithunaya. Typical of Surya in bhava-8, there is little or no conscious knowledge of the father (although he continues to be connected astrally). NDR's parents were divorced soon after her birth. Bio-dad played no further conscious role in her life.
Father-figure-2 = 19 deg Kuja ashtangata (Arudra) rules 1-6 = uncle, divorce
  • From infancy until fourth grade, age 9, Nancy's maternal uncle, the husband of her mother's sister, served as Nancy's primary father-figure.
  • NDR 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 Budha-Budha swabhukti age 9.4, she was called by a new name = Nancy Davis.

Father-figure-3 == 23 deg Budha (Puna) rules 8-11 = third father-figure, surgeon Dr. Loyal Davis (surgeon, 8) = adoptive father, mother's second husband. 11-social goals, networks

  • Age-14 in 1935, NDR 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 .NDR was introduced to monied society as a debutant.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Karkata * swakshetra * comforted by culturally familiar, rhythmic tidal maternal soothing
  • Chandra in Pushyami * comforted by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure, sensitive legislators, sober caretakers, legally minded environmentalists
  • Chandra in classroom-9 * comfort in the paradigm of belief * familiar with doctrine * accustomed to routine patronage * soothed by globalist perspective * needs to feel the repeating pulse of preaching sermons * calmed by a broad worldview * acculturated to principled understanding * emotionally sensitive father-figures * habitually seeks guidance * settled into the rhythm of philosophical humanism * undulating convictions


Mom = actress and socialite Edith Luckett. Mom was an aspiring cinema actress who first married a car salesman, but quickly divorced. Mom pursued her acting career with limited success. Mom then re-married with a political kingmaker, the surgeon Loyal Davis.

Mama abandoned little Anne Frances (later called Nancy) for nine years, to be raised by relatives. Shani mahadasha imposed nine years of separation, punctuated by occasional maternal visits.

After her mother's gainful remarriage, NDR rejoined her mother at the watershed era of Budha-Budha swabhutki. Once reunited, Nancy and her mother formed a dutiful bond Chandra in Pushyami. Mom died when NDR was 66 years old.


7th-from-Chandra-9 = bhava-3

Guru-Simha-10 dhavakaraka occupies karma-sthana

  • Meets the husband (Guru) in a theatre setting = Simha.
  • Shani-yuti-Guru suggests an older husband.

One signal of a compatible alliance = a match between the Rahu-Ketu axis of one partner with the radical Chandra-lagna or the radical lagna of the other partner.

Personal + Professional purposes

RWR's Chandra-Meza closely matches NDR's radical Meza R-K ++ D-9 Rahu-Ketu axis in Thula-Mesha ++ D-10 Rahu-Ketu axis in Thula-Mesha. NDR often said "My life began when I met Ronnie."

Marriage dynamics

Chandra-Karkata = comforted by caretaking, suggesting a parental role in marriage. RWR referred to NDR as Mommy.

This alliance works well due to Ronald Reagan's unique combination of nishturabhashi yoga with Chandra-yuti-Rahu. Chandra-yuti-Shani imposed Shani's legendary discipline and patience upon his treasury-acquiring Bharani-Chandra. Like most folks with Chandra-yuti-Rahu, RWR would have experienced an almost inevitable disconnection from the first spouse due to his Ketu resident in 7th-from-Chandra.

The Davis-Reagan union was long-lasting and loyal but non-exclusive. Multiplicity of partnerships in a spirit of permissive detachment is facilitated by his Guru-yuti-Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

NDR= Ketu-Azvini allows hery to mesh successfully with his disconnected relationships expectations.

Emotional Trauma

A psychological behavior pattern associated with the trauma of abandonment is Borderline Personality Disorder. Nancy's daughter reported Mrs. Reagan's adult BPD parenting issues, drug use, and cruelty.

It has been speculated that Nancy Reagan exhibited the classic symptoms of abandonment-trigger BPD, including gracious social warmth and public pleasantness to those outside the family paired with angry attacks and accusations within the private family domain, along with protective adoration of the narcissistic husband, paired with vicious mistreatment of one or more of one's children.


Chandra-Karkata + Chandra in classroom-9 politics

Choosing for her expected ministry of service a caretaking initiative, the Foster Grandparents program, NDR was widely praised for her commitment to community well-being.

Chandra Mahadasha * age 59.4 until age 69.4

Kuja * bhratru-karaka ** virya-karaka


Viparita Raja Yoga = Harsha Yoga

Kuja rules 1-personality appearance ++ 6-accusations, imbalance, search for remedies

Mangala in bhava-8 rules 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-1 Meza-6 * contains Ketu-Azvini NDR = best known as the caretaker for a long-serving and long-ailing national leader who was being propped up by the occult financial interests

  • Mangala-Mithunaya * vigorous pursuit of conversation * proactive delivery of information * push toward explanatory instruction * champion of process management
  • Mangala in bhava-8 * drive toward discovery, pursuit of rebirth, revolutionary dynamics, invasive transformations, vigorous revelations, energized mysterious conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * invigorated creativity,, energized confidence, dynamic genius, masculine force joins willful charm, potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions , potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions , potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * communicative competitions, energized communication, dynamic reporting, outgoing force joins messaging signal, potential for aggressive gestures, speech, and writing

Mangala in bhava-8 + Kuja-yuti-Surya + Kuja-yuti-Budha

an energetic but hidden agenda of communications management, public relations spin, talking points, media-messaging, meetings, and teamwork.

Mangala Mahadasha * age 69.4 until age 76.4 * retirement

Chandra signifies retirement and familiar circumstances. Measured from Chandra-Karkata-lagna, Mangala becomes a highly beneficial yogakaraka, ruling Meza = 6 ++ Vrischika = 1

Retirement was financially endowed by RWR's grateful supporters. The seven years of Kuja Mahadasha focused upon (1) physical body and appearance + (6) medical care, illness of the ailing husband, along with some activism in promotion of medical stem-cell therapies

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Busy Budha rules ++ 8-sudden identity change, walk-in

Budha rules Kanya swamsha

  • Budha-Mithunaya * swakshetra * business communications * articulation of specific instructions * informative pronouncements * messages about commerce * hands-on management * signaling explanatory information * detailed diagrams * talks about publication * interpretative interactions* commercial translation * hands-arms-shoulders send descriptive gestures
  • Budha in bhava-8 * narrative of hidden information, mysterious facts, unexpected eruptions, shocking revelations, detailed discoveries, describer of unexpected circumstances, explainer of sudden change, delivers instructions for new identity, talks about transformative healing and renewal
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * explainer of dramatic intelligence * affinity for central roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction instruction * articulation of radiant authority * message of willpower and charisma * confidently talkative father
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * explainer of competitive energies * affinity for engineering, invasive, exploratory roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction *articulator of competitive energies, signals forward action, message of innovation and forward movement, outspoken, fraternal conversations, aggressive communications, talkative brother-figures

Budha Mahadasha * age 9.4 until age 26.4

After a lonely Shani Mahadasha, Budha-Budha swabhukti (Budha randresha identity change) reunited Nancy with her relocated and remarried mother. (Budha re-) NDR moved from her childhood home to her mom's new home in an exclusive Chicago suburb. With a new name and a new social status, teenage NDR, became a socially connected young debutant, and attempted to launch a career as a Hollywood actress facilitated by her mom's Hollywood contacts Budha rules 11-connections.

Budha rules Mithunaya 10th navamsha = management, communications, event planning, travel itineraries

Messaging, talent manager, public-relations, teamwork, invitations, letter-writing

NDR maintained some remarkable hidden literary correspondence. She was a confidante and longstanding friend of UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales . The pair corresponded frequently. It was said that His Majesty felt understood by the former first lady. Her Chandra-Karkata-Pushya matches his Pushya radical lagna.

Mixed results in political communication

NDR's Just Say No anti-drug campaign was widely ridiculed for its condescending, socio-psychologically ignorant approach to the addiction epidemic. Her communicative style was often criticized as self-important, elitist, and contemptuous.

Nevertheless, NDR's signature service initiative as First Lady, the Foster Grandparents project, was widely praised as sensitive, realistic, and caring.

Occult management service * Mithunaya-8

In 1984, RWR won re-election to a second 4-year POTUS term * NDR Surya-Guru bhukti * Guru-10 rules 5-poitical elections

During the next three years, 1985-1986-1987, RWR's Alzheimer's symptoms became increasingly pronounced, and his team reported his attention deficit. With Shani+Guru in Simha-10 ++ Surya-Budha-Mangala in Mithunaya-8, NDR confidently stepped into the theatrical talent-manager role. She was prepared to lead.

It was reported that NDR did not ask for help and she did not accept advice. She managed his schedule and handled his communications. NDR hired and fired staff, including high-ranking aides and department heads, by simply telling her husband what to do, and ensuring that he did it.

Generally, he followed her instructions.

Naturally, NDR'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. Yet those close to the Gipper realized that he was not able to make decisions no matter who might be supporting him.

Looking back, many believed that NDR's unauthorized executive actions indeed averted a crisis of public trust. Some political observers opined that NDR had likely been substantially directing RWR's governance behaviors for many years -- perhaps as early as his California Governorship.

As a NDR was widely compared to Edith Bolling Wilson, who similarly acted as a shadow president when her husband was debilitated by strokes.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Benevolent Guru in bhava-10 rules 2-treasuries + 5- elections, games, celebrity, entitlements.

  • Guru-Simha * many lights, many displays, much drama, believes in special entitlement, doctrine of intelligence and unique personality, expands the scope of politics, multiple games, many celebrities and celebrations, much drama, believes in creativity and special entitlements
  • Guru in bhava-10 * many public roles, multiple diverse leadership duties, numerous recognized teachings, much respect, broad social visibility, extensive reputation, numerous obligations to maintain the social order, often a professor, preacher, philosopher, proselyte, presbyter, bishop, or priest
  • Guru-yuti-Shani atta-karaka * multiple elder-figures, abundant structure, many rules, expansive hierarchies and systems, much humanistic social philosophy, large-scale responsibilities

Guru Mahadasha * age 94.4 until decease

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

* Malavya Yoga

karako bhavo nashto

Zukra-7 rules 12-enclosure, invisibility ++ 7-partnership, alliance, agreements

  • Zukra-Vrizabha * swakshetra * appreciation of valuable arrangements, likes capitalization * attracted to fruits of the forests and fields * pleasures of collections * acquisitive sensuality* enjoys preservation and accrual * aesthetic of sounds * historic restorations * preferscontainment of precious goods
  • Zukra-7 * swabhava * pleasure of interpersonal relationships * enjoys contractual harmony * pleasant partnerships * pleasing designs to adorn the lower back * kidney-adrenal over-use * external genitalia * feminine-figures advise and bargain * appreciation of equity
Zukra-7 resides in the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Simbha (challenging placement) * heavy old entitlements * the weight of old royal drama * obliged to conform to center-stage flamboyant divas * vital energy compression stress zone = heart-spine * must accept pragmatic social restrictions upon creative self-expression * strictly imposed rules governing political affairs * must apply socially required restrictions upon genius, games, drama, children, romance * must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian entertainments * must work with slow, elderly political game-players * must continue to conduct lawful entitlement ceremonies 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. Tense=ion 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-yuti-Guru * resistance against expansion, elder teachers, pragmatic philosophy, limited understanding, doctrinal discipline, constrained growth, regulated beliefs

Dutiful Shani rules 2-family, face, assets, values + 3-business, messaging

Shani in Bhava-10

Originally, following her mother's model, she pursued a career as a Hollywood actress. However, despite generous funding from her parents, Nancy's thespian aspirations seemed to gain little traction. Ultimately her career would depend upon her husband's political role Shani-yuti-Guru ++ Rahu-7 ++ her own personality because 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-1

Simha-Shani pressure from political rules

Simha-Shani is particularly associated with the difficulties inherent in regulating (Shani) the brightly lit, flamboyant, center-stage political-entertainment environments. Nancy was accused of official impropriety (Shani) because she accepted millions of dollars worth of untaxed designer clothing and jewels into her personal wardrobe inventory (Zukra-2 ruled by Rahu-7 fascinating exchanges).

However, Ketu-1 in 10th-from-Chandra is unconstrained in official duty. She carried on collecting the baubles and later sold them.

Parents like hubby = Guru-yuti-Shani-Simha in 2nd-from-Chandra-Karkata

Nancy's mom's second husband (2nd-from-Chandra) was a political influencer. Her parents liked her husband. 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 (Mula). Over the bhukti 1952-1966 (14 years) they invested substantial financial and social resources into her husband's political career.

Shani-5 rules 6th-from-Guru = husband's ailments = karmasthana

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

  • Many recognized a repeat POTUS pattern.
  • Recalling the 1920's strokes of POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson and the 1940's debility of POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt. In those crises, the wives Ellen Wilson and Eleanor Roosevelt, their assistants and aides, all collaborated to present a facade of normalcy to the public.

Unlike FDR and Wilson, Reagan was in excellent physical health and in no danger of imminent death. Yet he had lost so much memory that he had limited judgment, and there was considerable support for the policy of maintaining the best possible facade of normalcy.

The current VPOTUS and 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 an overly protective and micromanaging Mrs. Reagan

Shani mahadasha * age birth until age 9.4

Due to her Pushya Chandra, NDR began life in a Shani period. NDR endured separation from both parents for her first nine years, while her father disappeared completely and her divorced mother left young Nancy to stay with relatives. A maternal aunt-and-uncle raised little Anne Frances (later called Nancy) for 9 years while the travelling-actress mother visited occasionally.

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


  • Rahu-Thula * craving for trade * mask of fairly bargained contracts * over-reaching arrangements * marvelous deals * exciting mixed-culture partnerships * mirage of deal-making * extraordinary term of agreement * fascinating alliances * ambitious diplomacy * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of negotiation, advocacy, counseling, adviser-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-12 * passion for privacy * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual retreat environments, withdrawal, sanctuary; desires an important, invisible role in invisibility, intuitive guidance, private prayer, isolation, enclosures, research laboratories and libraries, Other-Worlds. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious ancestor guides. Thrives in culturally-mixed monasteries, spiritual sanctuaries, hospitals, prisons, rehab centers, and other secluded spaces. Rahu-12 trespasses the cultural boundaries of dreamwork, imagination, sanctuary, and sleep. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a dream-interpreter, an ancestor spirit-guide, a magician from distant lands.

Rahu in bhava-12 = ambition for clandestine excitement

  • Ketu-Meza * dissociates from competitive dominance, incomplete nobility, empty arrival, dissolute conquest, not limited by blood or birth, ignores restriction on innovative movement
  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial)* absentee enemies, disregards criminal boundaries, dissolves the medications, ambivalent toward the power of exploitation, disinterested in disagreement, irrelevance of accusations. One walks away from sickness, abandons the usual suffering behaviors, ignores the conventional conflicts, delivers incoherent arguments.

Ketu in classroom-6 * Nonchalant Ketu + Harsha Yog

NDR was chastised for keeping the expensive show-clothes that she was given by the fashion designers to showcase their garments, and keeping state gifts from foreign leaders. Yet the beauty of Ketu-6 (a favorable placement for Shri Ketu) is apathy toward conflict and complaints. NDR ignored the outcry. She did not care. She was not cowed by the complaints, and she kept the valuable fashions for later re-sale.

NDR famously consulted tropical astrologers following the assassination attempt upon RWR. Although ridiculed by the press, NDR had no time for quibbles of public opinion.

Recounted in her daughter's autobiography to have been an abusive, belittling mother, NDR offered neither explanation nor apology. Further, the daughter accused NDR of maintaining her petite figure by the use of "pills to wake up and pills to go to sleep", all carefully managed to avoid crisis. Not only does Ketu-6 confer disregard for arguments, but also the Mangala-empowered Harsha Yoga grants extra protective powers to the Vrischika co-rulers (Ketu + Kuja).

NDR did as she wished.
