BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

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

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Meza * uttama * Suryaya * the supreme one
  • Surya in bhava-6 * center of service, brightly conflicted, focus on imbalance, eye on injustice * intelligence for helping ministries of social work, injury and disease, medical entitlements, broken contracts and litigation, accusation, divorce and disagreement, pollution and exploitation, poverty and crime, usury and debt, pharmacy and addiction, military and war

Rogabhava-6 contains Azvini-Rahu + Azvini-Zukra + Bharani-Surya

= medicine, disease, conflict, toxicity = new therapeutic medical treatment modality of psychiatry


Surya-Zukra-Rahu-6-Meza taking drishti of dispositor Mangala-11

Dad = (apparently) impoverished Hasidic wool merchant reputed for his prowess in Torah Study. Bharani-Surya suggests a money-changer. His father was married 3 times. Uttama-Surya + Rahu + Zukra would suggest that behind Rahu's fascinating camouflage, dad was an effective broker (Zukra) of deals in commodities and currencies far beyond wool.

Dad was married three times and the family moved often. Nevertheless young Freud received a substantial education due to uttama-Surya ruling 4th-from-uttama-Chandra.

Surya-Chandra 10-4 angle also indicates the mutually respectful social alignment of the parents. Freud's Vrischika radical lagna occupies 6/8-from-Surya. Sigismund transformed his father's flamboyant esotericism (8) into the new medical (6) interpretation of the forbidden.

Head = uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu-6

Baby Sigismund was born with a membrane shielding his face and head called the caul (caput galeatum).

Rahu rise and fall

In his own era, Freud was a medical-profession celebrity, but his antagonists were just as flamboyant (Surya) as himself.

Rahu-amplified ego and the (eventual) collapse of psychoanalytic theory. Freud's ideas (Surya) have lost most of their vigor due to a lack of supporting data after more than a century of seeking confirmatory proof in psychiatric clinical practice. Freud's intellectual ego-membrane (Surya) was greatly amplified by Rahu.

When told that his books were being publicly burned, Freud said "what progress we have made! In the Middle Ages they would have burned me; now they are content to burn my books ". Luckily Freud's Vimala Yoga protected him from those who would attack taboo-breakers.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Budha-Vrishabha yuti Chandra-Vrishabha

AsAs the eldest son of a young woman who had an elderly husband, Sigismund had an especially close relationship with his mother Chandra in classroom-7. Mom was a lifelong supporter for his career (7). Freud's mom stayed by his side for the great majority of her son's life. She died when he was 75 years old, and he himself died only seven years later age 83.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka lagnesha

  • Mangala in bhava-11 * drive toward connectivity, pursuit of earnings, , marketplace dynamics, invasive networking, energized scientific systems, ececonomic conquests

Lagnesha Mangala owns 6 and drishti into Rahu-6 further enflames the drive toward penetrating environments of taboo (Rahu) disease, unbalance, injury, injustice

Mangala-11 Kanya the critical investigator

Mangala-11 vigorous activity in domains of scientific exchange, economics, marketplace linkages, social networks, communities, connections. Freud was highly active in the professional assemblies of his day.

Mangala in bhava-11 argues and competes with friends (11)

After years of shared intellectual and psycho-medical inquiry, Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung 's understanding of the structure of the subconscious mind began to diverge from Freud's viewpoint, and Jung split from Freud's group in 1912 during Freud's intensely polarizing catalysis experience Shani-Rahu bhukti. Kanya Mangala is effective for criticizing ideas but very unhelpful for criticizing people, and Jung had had enough.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * * zisya-karaka

Budha Mahadasha * age 58.2 until 75.2

Freud won the coveted Goethe Prize in 1930 during Budha-Shani chidradasha, marking the end of Budha's peak bhukti of publications. Soon afterward, his books were banned and burned by Nazi attacks on Jewish writers.

Luckily Freud's Vimala Yoga protected him personally against imprisonment, even if his books were destroyed.

Ketu-Budha cchidradasha * final writings

When Jews were being aggressively imprisoned and exterminated in Austria, Dr. Freud's friends and colleagues facilitated his undisclosed movement to London (Budha rules 8 secrets). They were hoping that, although he was already suffering from advanced cancer of the tongue, his move to greater physical safety might help Freud to continue writing.

With much help under terrifying emergency circumstances (Budha rules 8), Freud was removed to London during Nazi exterminations. He was able to finish several books albeit these were written by assistants using his famous name uttama-Surya-pride. His books were published in London by A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf.

Using assistants for writing and transcription, Freud was able to finish two more books during Ketu-Budha chidradasha ibefore he died in Zukra-Zukra swabhukti (marana-Zukra rules-7 completion.)

  • Guru-Meena * much sleep. inner guidance, many imaginings, many dreams, intuitive beliefs, doctrine of esoteric understandings, expands the scope of contemplative awareness, multiple prayers and visions

Guru rules Meena swswamsha

Little Sigismund Schlomo was the first product of his father's third marriage, quickly followed by numerous younger siblings. Freud's father was married three times (Surya + Rahu + Zukra). His father's marriages provided two elder step-siblings

Guru-5 in 3rd-from-3rd many siblings ++ Guru in the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra indicates many siblings.

Sigismund Freud also produced six children of his own. Thus Freud was part of a quite large extended family. Guru drishti to 9-11-1 increases philosophical theoretical doctrine + income + physical stature

Despite his parents' early poverty and moving from city to city while trying to improve their luck, Sigismund was a superb student who loved to read in his native German and scriptural Hebrew. As a student, he read proficiently in French, Italian, Spanish, English, Latin and Greek = Budha texts + uttama-Chandra rules 9-understanding.

Tragically, after Freud died safely at his home in London via physician-assisted suicide, his four elder sisters perished in the Nazi extermination labor camps. They all died within his posthumous Zukra-Zukra swabhukti * Zukra rules Ketu-12 sisters decease in a prison.

Zukra-6 * addictions

Freud was an addicted smoker of cigars and cigarettes. He believed that smoking improved his mental performance. The meetings of his Vienna circles of physicians treating nervous disorders were reputedly great smoke-fests with all the wise doctors smoking like chimneys. Freud was rarely seen without a cigar or some type of smoking device in his hand. In 1923 he was diagnosed with malignant epithelioma (mouth cancer) from the smoking, but he did not stop smoking. Rahu smoke.

Zukra-yuti-Rahu unusual love relationships

Sigmund Freud produced six children with his avowed wife Martha,. Due to Zukra-yuti-Rahu, he also conducted a lifelong affair du coeur with Martha's younger sister Ms. Minna Bernays . Dr. Freud's nativity shows Zukra with a fiercely entitled Bharani-Surya and a taboo-breaking Azwini-Rahu.

His wife (Zukra) tolerated Freud's long-term sexual alliance with her own younger sister, and encouraged him to explore (Vrischika lagna) the psycho-sexual complexities which promoted the exciting (Rahu) new (Meza) field of hidden motivations (psychiatry).

Zukra Mahadasha * age 83 until decease age 83

His European professional standing as a thought-leader and professor allowed Freud and many of his extended family to escape to London under dire threat. However at age 83 and in extremely poor health, Freud died a year after arrival in London, via physician-assisted suicide (Zukra-6 yuti Rahu Azvini) due to unbearable pain of his cancerous jaw, Sept-1939.
