Masculine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni * Bhagadaivata * Prakphalguni * Arjuni


BPL commentary:

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.


Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83


"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Faust 1749-1832 polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote many types of literature, but his most beloved was an earthy type of melodrama which seemed to capture the German soul. His dramatic masterpiece Faust is a tale of human folly and greed which virtually anyone can understand.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Goethe by von Ferdinand 1818


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

lagnesha

  • Surya-Simha * Khaga * Khagaya * air-moving
  • Surya in bhava-1 * center of identity, brightly embodied vitality, intelligence for competition, focus on appearance, championship entitlements, eye on personality
  • Surya-yuti-Budha * confidently conversational, bright messenger, entitled to discuss, radiantly descriptive

Goethe was a man-about-town in Weimar, which was in his day a legendary social-intellectual capital. Weimar attracted talented people from throughout Europe. Goethe was born into the privileged classes and he held professional roles as a high-ranking court officer

Throughout his life, Goethe needed to negotiate a very challenging combination of a super-strong administrative uttama-Shani in Bhava-3 and a super-strong creative Surya in bhava-1. These graha facilitate writing and publishing, governance and management, along with other graha which articulate his remarkable range of talents and skills.

FATHER

Dad was a town manager, documenter and report-writer Surya-yuti-Budha ++ as a recognized leader and politician. Dad had a large presence Surya in bhava-1 amplified by drishti from Rahu-5. Attorney father had an imposing influence upon Goethe.

A burning-strong Surya-Simha receiving the incoming drishti from Rahu-Dhanuzya-5 made Goethe a famous creative figure. His literary writings were continuously popular from in his own day without lapse until the present time.

Surya-yuti-Budha shows Goethe's own capacity for administration-management.


Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Kumbha * comforted by rhythmic pulsing network linkage
  • Chandra in Shata-taraka * comforted by mixed networks * protectors of universal mingling, risky marketplaces, expedient social connections
  • Chandra in classroom-7 * comfort in arrangements; familiar with bargaining, soothed by equity, needs to feel the rhythm of deal-making routine partnership, balanced contracts; undulating agreements

Goethe was not only a scientist (Kumbha) and philosopher Chandra in Shata-taraka . He was also the songwriter of numerous bawdy German folk melodramas that were wildly popular and performed in village taverns.

Many of his dramatic works are written for an earthy, non-literate audience due to Chandra's ruler, Shani-Thula * uttama in bhava-3 writing. These comic-tragic tales of village life provided an outlet for his imagination (Chandra rules 12) and established him as a familiar German cultural icon.(Chandra)

Chandra = folkways. Goethe wrote countless bawdy tavern songs, and more formal lyrical poems too. Goethe was a serious scholar in many fields and he had the discipline Shani-Thula to produce voluminous documentation. In addition he was said to be a chatterbox Budha in bhava-1 * digbala, showing delight in spoken language, dialect pronunciations, and local twang.

During the intervening two centuries, science has advanced while basic human consciousness has not. Over time, Goethe's drama and poetry have outperformed his abundant scientific works Chandra in Shata-taraka. Yet even the older scientific drawings are still admired for their detailed accuracy and stylistic beauty.


Marriage alliance

Johanna Christiana Sophie Vulpius was born in Weimar, 01-June-1765 and died in Weimar 06-June-1816 (her age 51). Christine was the non-exclusive life-partner and after 14-Oct-1806 the legal wife of Johann Wolfgang Goethe. She was the mother of his five born children (only one child survived to adulthood).

In a husbandly nativity, kalatra-karaka nichha-Zukra suggests some illness or servitude of the spouse and generally imbalance-seeking-a-remedy in marriage

  • 7th-from-Chandra-7 = bhava-1 containing Budha-Simha yuti Surya-Simha suggesting that Christina deeply supported Goethe's (creativity (Simha) and love of entertainments (Simha) including his numerous romantic endeavors
  • Goethe referred to Christina as his muse. He found her irreplaceable, and was not concerned with public opinion about her social status.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Dhanuzya * vigorous pursuit of humanistic worldview* push toward doctrinal expansion, proactive teaching-preaching, philosophical globalism
  • Mangala in bhava-5 * drive toward creativity, pursuit of games, invasive drama, display dynamics, energized by romantic and political conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * energized pretense, dynamic desires, masculine force joins opportunistic ambition, potential for aggressive pursuit of privileges

The creative, political, philosophical pair Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 occupy the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Goethe's brotherly (Kuja) friendship with Karl August, Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenac provided most of his income (11) and prestige opportunities (Rahu) via politicized administrative and managerial appointments to various government projects (3rd-from-3rd).

It was the royal (5) Karl August's belief (Dhanuzya) in Goethe's wide-ranging talents that allowed Goethe to rise both socially and financially.

yogakaraka + Mangala-Dhanuzya * Mangala in bhava-5 rules 4-patriotism ++ 9-philosophy.

Although Mangala-Dhanuzya will generally bring the energetic, dynamic movement of Mangala in bhava-5 into the world of creative literature and celebrity politics (5), in his capacity as ruler of bandhu-4 Mangala also allows the excitement of home-invasion (1806) by French soldiers


Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Simha * dramatic communications, articulation of bright celebrity entitlements, messages about politics and creativity
  • Budha in bhava-1 * digbala * narrative of body, self, identity, narrative of appearance, describer of embodiment, explainer of tangible self, delivers instructions for physical identity
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant authority, message of willpower and charisma, confidently talkative father

writing, messaging, lyrics, communications, reports, announcements, documentation

For Simha lagna, Budha in bhava-1 creates a Dhanayoga

  • Budha rules 2-banking, conserved assets ++ 11-marketplace income, revenues, goals
  • Budha rules creative-secretive 5-8 from Kumbha-Chandra

Guru-Meena in 2nd-from-Chandra suggests birth-family affluence. Goethe was raised in bourgeois comfort by his town-manager dad and educated mother. His various income opportunities were mainly framed as writing, publication, administration, and teamwork projects = Budha.


Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Meena * much guidance, many imaginings, many dreams, intuitive beliefs, doctrine of astral guidance
  • Guru in bhava-8 * much secrecy, many sudden changes. many confidences, numerous identity transformations, abundant initiation, extensive hidden assets

Guru in bhava-8 -Meena expansion rules the creative, ambitious Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 ++ secretive, healing Meena-8

Randhresha Guru-5 is stressful for children. Goethe had five children with Christine Vulpius, but only their eldest son survived to adulthood.

Goethe's surviving son Julius August Walther von Goethe was born in 1789 (Goethe's age 40). Goethe's marriage to his son's mother Christine Vulpius occurred in 1806 (Goethe's age 57). His son was obliged to live with the bourgeois stigma of illegitimacy for seventeen years. Julius August Walther von Goethe, the only surviving son predeceased his father.

Yet Guru-Meena-8 is financially well-placed in 2nd-from-Chandra, and the senior Goethe arranged favorable positions for the junior Goethe.

Goethe was a recognized polymath who displayed a stunning variety of artistic, literary, scientific, and legal talents.. While Goethe's secrets were many, his public side was dramatic and inspiring Mangala-yuti-Rahu-Dhanuzya . His works were celebrated as peak examples of German wisdom, philosophy, teaching, and numerous diverse expressions of understanding. Goethe demonstrated his genius via an astounding variety of connected fields of study.

  • According to wikipedia, these included "epic and lyric poetry written in a variety of metres and styles; prose and verse dramas; memoirs; an autobiography; literary and aesthetic criticism; treatises on botany, anatomy, and colour; and four novels. In addition, numerous literary and scientific fragments, more than 10,000 letters, and nearly 3,000 drawings by him are extant."

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, pleasures of medication, enjoys humility, aesthetic of remedies for injustice
  • Zukra-2 * swabhava * pleasure of gathered assets, enjoys banked, collected equity; feminine-figures predominate the family, gracious storyteller, preserved, linguistic, voiced, historical values , appreciation of assets

Zukra-Kanya * nichha occupies the secretive the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's romantic adventures and misadventures were also celebrated, as he seemed to eschew conventional relationship conduct while becoming a Weimar favorite ladies' man.

Zukra is also responsible for the orderly aspect of his governance career.

  • Zukra rules Karakamsha = bhava-10 governance duties
  • Zukra rules Arudha lagna = bhava-10 governance duties
  • Zukra rules 10th navamsha containing Shani + Budha + Ketu= career in song, art, governance

Lifepartnership

Zukra-Kanya suggests that Goethe's wife needed to be a service-class woman not a fragile woman like Lili with whom he dissolved engagement in Shani-Ketu bhukti. Finally married Christine the house-servant and artists model, 31 years later in 1806 and they produced five children.

Goethe's amorous lifestyle was accepted by his peers. Zukra-Kanya suggests marriage with a servant-figure or one committed to a ministry of service. His wife Christine Vulpius was a strong and capable housekeeper. She boasted neither social nor intellectual pretensions.

Despite Christine hailing from a much lower (considered vulgar) social register, after 19 years of being unlicensed lovers, Goethe married her at his age 57.

An earthy woman who was a house-servant and artist's nude model, Christine was apparently very strong. Goethe boasted to everyone that Christine had counter-attacked marauding soldiers who threatened their home and their children.

Zukra in the secretive, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Goethe's socially conscious mother (Chandra-7) was horrified at his marriage, and died soon after their wedding. They remained married until Christine's own death ten years later.

Nichha-Zukra-2 rules 3-writing + 10-governance

Nichha-Zukra * Despite his dignified job and high-placed friends, Goethe was prone to writing and enacting bawdy, salt-of-the-earth musical melodrama. He broke marriage-engagement contracts. He consorted with ladies of diverse reputation. He was generally a man-about-town.

His amorous affairs and in particular his marriage to a servant woman Zukra-Kanya caused consternation among his bourgeois peerage. However Goethe's literary reputation has steadily increased over the centuries, due mainly to Shani-uttama-3 which maintains the appreciation value of written works.


Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

atmakaraka

  • Shani-Thula * uttama * old agreements, pressured kidney-pancreas, imposed agreements, must trade, must negotiate with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-3 * must message, have to explain; cautious, conventional cohort; tense communications, chronic mental depression; heavy pressure against free communications, Limited hearing, deafness.

Shani rules 7-diplomacy ++ 6-conflict.

Among his other skills, Goethe was a professional diplomat and representative of the royal court

Shani in Bhava-3 occupies the elder-respecting, old-faith, strict philosophies, punitive, scarcity-preaching 9th-from-Chandra

Enduring Literary Legacy

Most of Goethe's literary oeuvre is still in print, 250 years after he produced it. His poetic writings continue to influence the minds of each new generation of dedicated readers. Goethe - especially Faust - is read by university students and by intellectuals who specialize in the study of European culture. It is common to hear non-German intellectuals declare that they undertook the study of the German language solely for the purpose of reading Goethe!

  • Goethe's style and ideals provided a major influence upon the work of Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner who was the founder of Anthroposophy.

However, not everyone is equally enamored of Goethe's style.

  • The American leader POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson was a contemporary of Goethe, and Jefferson had traveled in Germany. Replying to a peer who asked whether he had read Goethe, Jefferson reportedly said, "Never!"

Goethe was a dignified agent of the social order, and his governance duties in the Weimar Republic were a source of public recognition and respect. Shani occupies 10th-navamsha

Shani rules Kumbha-7 scientific exchange

Goethe was proudest of his scientific writings and his laborious, detailed scientific schematics Shani in Bhava-3 diagrams . However, these writings and drawings were contextualized by the limited (Shani) knowledge of his era and most have fallen into disuse. However, they are valued as fascinating evidence of the unfolding history of 18th century scientific thought.


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

  • Rahu-Dhanuzya *craving for philosophical principle, theory, higher truth * mask of global humanistic belief * fascinated by doctrine, catechism * * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) guidance, generosity, patronage, proselytism, fatherliness
  • Rahu in bhava-5 * passion for politics, celebrity, games * in swabhava of Splendid Surya, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual children; out-of-bounds creativity, and amplified poetic romance; Risk-rewarding Rahu generates a charismatic individuality, center-of-attention displays of creative genius. Desires a special, important role in performance arts, literary arts, entertainments, royalty roles, pageantry, celebrity events, or dramatic splendor. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious children and lovers. Rahu the Poseur may wear the persona (mask) of a dramatic actor, a celebrated intellectual, or a politician. Craves the center stage, the lights, the glory. Rahu-5 trespasses the cultural boundaries in matters of unique personal creativity, children, speculation, gaming. Seeks flamboyant fashion, exceptional offspring, and the thrill of political theatre.
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * amplified competition, magnified championship, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inventive, dynamic energy, hypnotic attack

The political-philosophical pair Mangala-yuti-Rahu-5 occupies the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

This double signification indicates the lasting influence of Goethe's well-placed friends. His most powerful relationship, a sincere brotherly (Kuja) friendship and advocate arrangement with Duke Karl-August the ruler of Weimar, created remarkable prestige for Goethe.

These dynamic (Kuja) opportunities (Rahu) connected Goethe to a network of ambitious, philosophical young men and thus his ability to realize his diverse ambitions extended far beyond what would normally be allowed for a young middle-class attorney from a non-aristocratic family


Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversations, incomplete message, empty instructions, dissolute signals, not limited by commerce, ignores restriction on communication
  • Ketu in classroom-11 * absent from friendships, disregards profitability * no barriers in community, dissolves the social network, vacuous associations, irrelevance of the material goals, ambivalence toward economic empowerment. One abandons the elder siblings, ignores marketplace earnings, surrenders the electro-magnetic connections. May prefer to live without electricity, or off-the-grid.
