Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

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

"a proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Rescue of failing Crusades by Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst

In early1949 during Surya-Budha bhukti * Budha-yuti-Rahu-2 speech, Rev. William "Billy" Graham's Los Angeles Crusade was playing to an empty house. The audience had dwindled, expenses could not be paid, and the operators were going to shut down the failed revival meetings.

Suddenly (Rahu) he saw the flashing of camera lights as the aisles filled with newspaper reporters (Budha).

The billionaire plutocrat, pro-fascist, and virulent anti-Communist media magnate Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst had heard Graham speak. W.R. Hearst had commanded battalions of newspaper and radio journalists to vigorously promote Graham's anti-Communist Crusade. Their salaries were paid by Hearst.

Although most religious leaders in the USA were careful to respect the legal distinction between church and state, Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst was a fascist for whom there were no such protections since "all was bound together".

Fascisti do not respect legal distinctions, Rather, they seek a mandatory, centralized, uniform power. Hearst wanted to see more binding between politics and religion within Euro-American culture, and in Graham he found an excellent tool.

Follow the Funding

For Hearst, more Christianity meant less Communism. During the final two years of Hearst's life, Hearst significantly funded Graham's ministry . Graham's preaching ever afterward reflected the nichha-Surya willingness to say what the cintamani * mani * money (combust Zukra) required him to say.


Billy Graham socializing with POTUS-43 Decision Points 1946- George W. Bush . Graham, who was four years elder to GW's father, had been a family friend and counselor. In his 2010 autobiography Decision Points, GW Bush credited Graham with supporting GW's successful struggle to break free from chronic alcoholism.

Feminine Nativities

Visaka* Radha

BPL commentary

For Visaka births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion.

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.

Growth Shocks

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 may be experts on the subject of relationships, both seen and unseen. They have a broad understanding of the power of polarities. They are often found in advising and recommending roles (Zukra) which engage ideology or theory (Guru) such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Thula-Visaka, the husband may also be impoverished or ailing (due to Guru rules 3-6 from Thula).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-treasury, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic action. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 ladies are often found in teaching and healing work, especially when using their expertise with the sexual-reproductive energies.

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.

"... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character, even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."

Dad = Lemuel Nelson Bell was a missionary surgeon.

Surya-yuti-Zukra shows the influence upon Dad of 1-his daughter's identity + 2-matters of non-disclosure

Surya in bhava-8 may indicate a surgeon, whose work must be veiled. Dr. Bell may have been involved in other secret activities as well.

Writing + Illustrating + Publishing Career

Surya vriddhipathi occupies 3rd-from-Chandra ++ Zukra rules 3rd-from-Chandra

Surya-yuti-Zukra occupies the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra .

Mom married Nelson Bell, a hospital surgeon. Also typical of Chandra-6, Mom suffered from debilitating headaches (migraine).

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


Typically, the lifepartner hails from a distant land. RBG was born in China, educated in China-Korea, and she arrived in the USA age 19. BG was born, raised, and educated in North Carolina, USA.

The early years of marriage produced five children, as BG restlessly sought a right ministry. With a thrilling and engaging voice (RBG Kuja rules 2-speech) BG started in radio and expanded to television and print media.

Mangala in bhava-12 is a complicating factor in the union. Mangala yuvathipathi rules 7 occupies 6th-from-7th.

BG was a vigorous, world-traveling salvation preacher with a devoted following. His rhetoric emphasized values of honor, integrity, and respect. Yet the couple experienced long separations which were publically announced as being due to BG's demanding global ministry. Essentially a single mother, RBG raised their children with the help of her own parents, while BG traveled. Similar to the Eisenhowers, they lived together only in retirement.

While RBG has Ketu-7, BG has Ketu in his 7th-from-Chandra.

Often for the feminine Thula nativity, the husband-figure creates a challenging pattern because Guru dhavakaraka rules 3 + 6. For RBG, there are however some nice compensations including world renown and respect for service as religious leaders, due to uttama-Guru-10 parivartamsha Chandra-6

  • Rahu in bhava-1 * passion for vitality * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous, exotic, or mesmerizing physical visage, extraordinary athletic movement. Smoky, oily aura. Craves an exceptional appearance, exhilarating energy, thrilling champion of non-standard lifestyles. Seeks social mobility via vital, dynamic muscularity. Exciting personality. Challenges the norms with innovative behavior. Unusual combination of identities. Embodiment of socio-cultural mixing. Seeks opportunity via ability to cross customary boundaries. Double agent, representing two or more groups. Over-reaching characteristics. Stirring ambition. Trespasses the conventional dividing cultural boundaries. Remarkable conditions of birth. A fascinating figure.. May represent a cult of personality.

RBG became the center of a cult of personality which stimulated a narrative of marvelous qualities. The cult celebrated her personal holiness and moral perfection as the ideal wife (Rahu-Thula) and companion to the great and pure preacher. Luckily. RBG also had a sense of humor.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Meza * dissociates from competitive dominance, incomplete nobility, empty arrival, dissolute conquest, not limited by blood or birth, ignores restriction on innovative movement
  • Ketu in classroom-7 * ambivalent toward agreements, absentee spouse, disregards contractual loyalties, disinterested in negotiations, wanders from the middle-balance, dissolves the alliances, irrelevance of equity and partnership. One abandons the usual covenants, ignores the conventional bargains, delivers incoherent promises.

Ketu occupies 2nd-from-Chandra suggesting that despite shortcomings of a first alliance, a second visible marriage would be less likely

"and now my friends,

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."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
