Visaka * Radha
For Visaka births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..
High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.
Thula-Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles (Zukra) which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm (Guru) . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.
Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Zukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Thula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick (due to Guru rules 3-6).
Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.
Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.
"... Aggressiveness and impatience.
These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.
They are very active but not popular,
they are very proud
their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.
they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,
Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."
Nelson Mandela in Xhosa Attire

| Distinctive features of the Nativity
Dad = Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa Mandela (1880–1928). Dad served as counsel to the tribal king. Dad had four wives, four sons and nine daughters. Dad died when young Nelson was nine.
Mandela was imprisoned from Ketu-Surya bhukti 1964 until his release during Surya-Surya swabhukti 1990 * 27 years * three cycles of Gochara Rahu
The son of an important royal adviser, NM was raised with respect from others. Despite exceptionally difficult conditions of a life-sentence in a notorious prison, NM was able to maintain a modicum of self-respect and secure an enduring political leadership role, even within the trap Surya in bhava-10
Within the miserable mistreatment and contentiously unfair culture of prison enclosure, NM slowly (Shani) negotiated a series of agreements with stakeholders from a variety of constituencies who would eventually, under his leadership, do the amazing and unthinkable: end the regime of apartheid, and allow black leadership in South Africa.
Mom = Gadla's third wife, Nosekeni Fanny. Mom lived until NM turned 50. Chandra in classroom-1 suggests that she had a deeply influential effect on his moral character.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
Budha in bhava-10 top governance roles, rules
Brihaspati rules Arudha lagna = Dhanuzya- 3 writings, collaboration groups, cohort, management
NM produced powerfully influential writings and speeches
Guru owns and casts drishti into bhava-3 * written in an accessible, philosophical, yet vivid style, widely read political autobiography Long Walk to Freedom
8 = Dwadas-arudha = arudha lagna of bhava-12
NM led a non-violent revolution to overturn apartheid in South Africa. Apartheid had generated one of the most violent and contentious political struggles in modern history. When the right time arrived, Mandela used the force of personal character (honed during a bitterly long prison life-sentence) to lead a remarkably swift and successful campaign against the tyranny of racial inequality, prejudice, and hatred
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Mangala in bhava-12 afflicted by Shani's oppressive drishti in 12. Due partly to enclosing pressure of Shani, NM's incarceration required 30 years of harsh, limiting austerities in order to reach their his full manifest empowerment.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Rahu in bhava-2 = typically an unusually ambitious or pretentiously privileged family line. NM's family claimed royal lineage, and although his father's position fluctuated (Rahu drishti to Surya-10) dad served often as a inner counselor to the king.
Rahu's ruler Mangala in bhava-12 tends to drain the public influence of the lineage causing a focus of values-and-knowledge into the realm of distant lands, imagination, and private rooms.
Ruler of 2 occupies 11th-from-2. Mandela left a remarkable estate valued at more than $4million. Most of his income (Simha-11) came from honoraria for delivering speeches (Rahu-2).
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
