Empowered Budha wins the USA
Empowered Budha also brings death
and the crippling grief that made him "Silent Cal"

Warren G. Harding
Distinctive features of the Nativity:
Rahu in Rishabha
Mrigashira Chandra is a "nosy" fellow, quietly and in a
friendly way but energetically inquisitive. Helpful for making
friends and networking even with an overall quietistic personality.
(Viparita Raja Yoga) = L-8 in bhava-6 = surprising benefits
from lawsuits, illnesses, pollution, or
impoverishment (6) Mr. Coolidge
benefitted from violently suppressing labor strikes (6) which causes
terrible trouble for others but indeed promoted his career. Shani-6
shows he lacked sympathy for workers.
is competitive and ambitious. Its method is 'sniffing out' the
conversations, relationships, and values of the herd. The
Mrigashira Chandra native has excellent instincts for finding the
path of domination and despite its preference for family life is
often called into some variety of service to society. It is also
associated with asthma - from which Coolidge suffered lifelong.
Coolidge was not an ostentatiously rich
man. However, his philosophical beliefs (L-9 uchcha Guru) about
deregulation of marketplace
relationships (L-11 Shukra, uchchamsha in navamsha) influenced an entire nation for 6
years. He held that "winner take all" capitalism was the best
economic policy. Note the uchchamsha Rahu in 11.
Chandra + Mangala is
exceptionally driven toward personal profit, based on an
emotional conviction that "competition"
(fair or not) is the key value in life. "Fair" is a value of
Shukra. Unless Shukra is also strong, the competition may be
as nasty as necessary in order to reveal the natural
dominator. In Coolidge's nativity, Shukra = moudhya in 12
(weakened) but Mangala is not damaged by combustion. Chandra + Mangala always gains significant profit -
through fair means or foul.
Coolidge presided during the
"Roaring Twenties" of USA financial "wildness" - when the law
of the jungle seemed to prevail in financial markets (Rahu-11).
labor strikes from his earliest days as Massachusetts
governor, Coolidge was a great friend to capitalist owners and
an enemy of the common worker's struggle for higher wages.
Many historians consider
Coolidge's laissez-faire economic policies to have
plunged the country (and much of the financial world) into a
deep monetary depression, soon after the end of his six-year

a series of local, city, and state official positions.
Except for one School Board election
(which he lost because his marriage had not yet produced children), he won
every contest - often running unopposed. Ketu in 4 = schools.

Coolidge's wife, Ms. Grace Anna
Goodhue, a schoolteacher, is described as a cheerful and
conversational person but not lacking in traditional
austerity. Most observers felt she was the key to his social
success. Despite the dour implication of his L-7 = Shani,
Coolidge's Shani receives drishti of the talkative Mithuna graha
Chandra, Surya, Mangala, and Shukra. Shani occupies the gainful
11th-from-7th, indicating that his wife was indeed a great and
elected governor of Massachusetts

Rahu in 10 = high public position,

and agreements) and Guru is

does not like!) = catastrophic change at the last moment

death of President 29, Warren Harding.
but there is a fixed contract (Shani,
7th-from-Chandra) which leads to a stable and lawful transition to a
new public leadership role. Guru = L-7 (10th-from-10th) and L-10

despite his grief, Coolidge campaigns for his party and for his own
presidency, winning the 1924 presidential election

continued the policies of non-interference in market capitalism (Budha

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