"When governments fear people, there is liberty.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."
Jefferson was spectacularly talented political philosopher, architect, writer,
and statesman - inter alia. He qualifies as a notable polymath of his
era. However some aspects of his human character
and behavior, particularly his intimate relationships, are considered unusual
to the point of overtly breaking social taboo of his day. (compare to another famous
Punarvasu, Albert Einstein - same open minded Guru disregard for Shani
Jefferson was also very much associated with a massive military and political revolution, with metal implements, and frequent journeys by sea.The current rectification accounts nicely for this historical view of the man by placing neechcha Kuja in lagna. Kuja gets neechcha bhanga in this position; the parivartamsha yoga created with Chandra thereby gives Kuja intense courage, literary capabilities, and frequent journey by sea.
Atmakaraka Mangala in Meena 10th navamsha suggests philosophical worldview and some designation as a spiritual guide or teacher but with a physical, muscular, sexual or warlike element from Mangala. Indeed Jefferson was a capable and very influential political philosopher but always first and foremost a man of action.
The nativity becomes exceptionally powerful via Atmakaraka Mangala in the radical lagna where Kuja obtains neechcha-bhanga because uchcha Surya occupies Mangala's rashi in kendra-10.

"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence ,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime
Rahu in bhava-10 +
uchcha Surya + Budha
Rectified BT = 12:58pm :
Yogakaraka L5+L10 Kuja in lagna
association with listening = diplomacy = Chandra-Sravana
uchcha Surya-10 = leadership
philosophical Budha-9 = philosophy and priesthood.
Rahu in Dhanushya D-9 lagna = philosophical passions, Enlightenment-driven political revolution, and socially taboo personal relationships
lord of the D-10 lagna = uchcha Ravi
plus a number of other satisfying results :)
(No confirmed birth time is recorded.)
Rahu in bhava-10 = dramatic rise to leadership roles, under taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances.
Often a glass-ceiling crasher, able to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles.
May challenge conventional standards in the style of ascendancy to the high ranking position.
Rahu swabhukti is especially intense, exposing the native 's life to the public eye.
Diverse responsibilities, executive empowerment involving contact with outsider, foreign elements, world governments.
Best results in Vrishabha (uchcha, wealth) and Kumbha (own sign, widely distributed networks) but all rashi will yield publicity and leadership power. Rahu gives best results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.
Jefferson = a very active man and an agent for change with a philosophical, humanistic orientation.
The social identity which marks his life's work is directly adversarial and enormously capable of risk (especially involving travel by sea) - per the rising Yogakaraka Kuja.
The highly empowered collection of : uchchamsha Ravi, Rahu, Shukra, and neechcha Chandra = tenants of Kuja

all that is true, all that is noble,
all that is just and pure,
all that is loveable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and admirable -
fill all your thoughts with these things."
