BPL commentary

For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social order.

The Listener * Shaman

Shravishta gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Sravana are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.

As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law. In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.

Shravana-born are highly skilled listeners.Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Shravana can be music and dance performance. Sravistha gentlmen are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing. When the occasion calls for careful listening to the beat of the music, their steps may be practiced and elegant.

Measured, appropriate tone

Shravana must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law. While public dignity remains important, Sravana fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow (Chandra) of the ethnicity or the nation. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.

Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.

"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,

  • particularly to those less fortunate than himself.

This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life

  • without injuring anyone else to do so.

He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.

  • The extent of his activities in this direction,

  • will of course depend on his station in life.

Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.

He will also be very religious

  • and will participate in church activities

  • if his environment permits."

liberal progressive Guru-Kumbha-2 in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

bhava-2 facilitates talking, speeches, inquiry into traditional values. Kumbha = futurism, theory, social networks, science

RW was considered by those whom he upset to be a force of disruptive innovation and sudden, unexpected threat to the established order. As the international leader of the Anglican hierarchy and its mainly elderly worshippers, RW served as a voice of intelligence, creativity, and nobility of spirit (Surya) which came to loggerheads with the stony, Shani-ruled mega-structure of the established Church. His own Shani-8 prevented a revolutionary schism within the faith communion, which was provoked by his His departure from executive roles was welcomed as a sign of "return to normal" by the aging, conservative faithful.


Mom = Nancy Delphine Morris Williams

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-5 = bhava-11 community activism, social progressive linkage

  • Since 1981, RW has been married to the theologian and liturgical writer Jane Paul. They have two children.
  • bhava-11 = community activism, social connections, attainment of goals, material achievement, fundraising

Lifepartner as catalyst

  • Via the Kuja-ruled marriage partnership (11) RW who is a basically conservative Zravana personality has been thrust (Kuja) into the vanguard of transformative (Vrischika) liberal progressive social participation networks (11).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation * proactive medication * thrust toward service * push toward unfairness * champion of litigious accusation, medical treatment plans, aggressive indictments, investigative journalism, indictments,
  • Mangala in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * drive toward doctrine, champion of paradigmatic belief, pursuit of patronage, dynamic preaching, energized philosophical conquests, dominating father-figures. Often Kuja-9 = challenges to the father's lifestyle.
  • Kuja-yuti-Ketu * forceful break-up, invigorated collapse, energized pilgrimage, dynamic wandering, masculine force joins apathetic surrender, potential for aggressive annihilation of initiations

Critical Kanya-Mangala + nebulous Ketu occupy the scholarly, creative 5th-from-Chandra suggesting a willingness (5 willpower) and ability (Kuja action) to tackle unclear (Ketu) and controversial, accusatory arguments (Mangala-Kanya)

Kuja-yuti-Ketu -9 theology = occupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Mangala in bhava-9 * dhana-yoga * Vriddhipathi-11 in 11th-from-11th * earnings from vigor and competition

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-yuti-Chandra * explainer of feelings * affinity for caretaking, parental roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction  *  articulation of comfortable routines, message of sensitivity and emotional flow, intuitively talkative mother

Budha-5 celebrity rules 9-ecclesiastics

Bantering Budha rules Mithunaya-Puna swamsha

Blustering Budha rules Karakamsha = bhava-9 containing Mangala-yuti-Ketu. Williams is acknowledged as a gifted but not easily understood Writer on often abstruse theological, theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual topics (Ketu arcane, abstruse) .

Budha rogesha occupies 12th-from-6

RW s= a prominent exponent (Budha) of social justice and inclusion for historically marginalized persons such as LBGTQ+ (6). RW championed the cause of women's eligibility to serve as Anglican bishops. Yet in most of RW's campaigns for equity and fair handling, he lost the case. Rogapathi Budha-5 in 12th-from-6th reduces harm to him personally, but also weakens the empowerment to successfully advocate for the disadvantaged classes

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Kumbha * much networking, many group associations, scientific beliefs, doctrine of economic linkage, expands the scope of social participation, multiple communities and friendships
  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard, many songs, many stories, history, storage, several genetic lineages, much many accumulated goods, numerous languages, many voices, many valuations, extensive accounts and assets, family identity = growth, belief, expansion of the lineage

Guru = kharesha

Brihaspati rules Meena 10th navamsha

Benevolent Brihaspati receives a conservative, restraining, fearful drishti from Shani-Simha-8.

Generous Guiding Guru occupies the career-defining, emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = philosophy, theory, humanistic teaching career

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-Meza * appreciation of competitive movement, likes innovation, attracted to champions, pleasures of conquest, athletic sensuality, enjoys direct action, aristocratic arrangements
  • Zukra-4 * digbala * pleasure of home-based routines; enjoys domestic equity, feminine-figures are prominent in the home environment, prefers stability and routine in the domestic life * pleasing designs to adorn the chest, breast, torso * appreciation of owned properties

Zukra-4 occupies the contemplative, imaginative, prayerful 12th-from-Chandra

Kalatrakaraka Zukra representing the Value of Women rules 6th-from-Chandra * emotional conflict from and about women, sexual relationships, finance, and values traditions.

RW faced surprisingly contentious accusations (6) and bitter criticism (6) for supporting committed same-sex unions within the Church. He championed the cause of ordained women priests serving as Anglican bishops, but due to virulent criticism (6) of this initiative, the Anglican Church lost access to much-needed feminine leadership.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


  • Shani-Simbha (challenging placement) * heavy old entitlements * the weight of old royal drama * obliged to conform to center-stage flamboyant divas * vital energy compression stress zone = heart-spine * must accept pragmatic social restrictions upon creative self-expression * strictly imposed rules governing political affairs * must apply socially required restrictions upon genius, games, drama, children, romance * must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian entertainments * must work with slow, elderly political game-players * must continue to conduct lawful entitlement ceremonies despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious transformations. One must slowly, inexorably change the old order. One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner. In-laws contribute little. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as surgeon, tantriki, concealer, mask-maker, emergency regulator.

Shani in Bhava-8 * initiating a laborious movement toward institutional change * one step forward, two steps back

RW proposed numerous rebirth, rejuvenation, and modernization enhancement to the official doctrine of the Anglican Church. RW's carefully legal (Makara) examination of the precedents and policies which structure the corporate hierarchy of the Church. Due to his Shani-8 which internally resists forward-moving change, RW was unable to effect these improvements. Nevertheless, via lagnesha Shani, RW created an iconic personality symbolizing the institutionally slow (Shani) pace of changes to deeply embedded structures. The first phase of the inevitable changes was naturally an apparent failure because it is Shani's duty to resist survival-threatening movement. The first volley will likely be reframed as a success when seen from the longer perspective of institutional evolution.

yogakaraka from Chandra-Vrishabha lagna rules 9+10

Shani-Simha-8 indicating a survival fear of politics ++ fear of unregulated change occupies the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra suggesting a stable, conventional, scarcity oriented home and government schools

Shani-8 drishti upon 10-career manifested the highly empowered promotion to Archbishop of Canterbury during Shani-Shani swabhukti.

Shanri-8 drishti also into bhava-2 historical values, languages, song ++ bhava-5 politics, creative gamesmanship

Shani-8 = resistance to change

Shani-8 provided enough contact with the established hierarchy to retain his authority. Yet his tenure in the authority topper role was beleaguered by resistance to change (Shani-8) and social fear of nonconformity (Shani-Simha).

His work on social-economic participation within the communion of believers will be judged to have been successful in retrospect albeit necessarily glacially slow (Shani).

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

  • Rahu-Meena * shimmering illusion of immersion * craving for symbolic guidance * mirage of imaginative wisdom * mesmerizing aura of concealing fog * mask of dreamlike Other Worlds * fascinating prayers *extraordinary ancestor guides * fabulous clairsentience * intriguing sleep-states * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of deep trance, private intuition, interior guidance, contemplative-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual writing, photography, journalistic reporting, news announcements, cinema, commentary, messaging. Craves publication. Desires a special, important explanatory, descriptive, or instructional role. Over-reaching in commercial business, internet, cinema, or communications media. Exciting, opportunistic engagement with process management, manufacturing, business administration, instructions, information technology. Trespasses cultural boundaries of cohort-conversations and evangelistic proclamations. Ambitious character of the sibling-cousin, collaborative team, or touring ensemble.

Passion for contemplative community

Rahu-Meena contemplation, imagination ** occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Kanya * dissociates from accusatory complaints, incomplete service, empty disagreements, dissolute arguments, not limited by stigmatized status, ignores restriction on imbalance
  • Ketu in classroom-9 * incoherent ideology, disinterested in the credenda; wandering worldview; absentee father-figures * no barriers in doctrine, disregards teachings, vacuous philosophy, irrelevance of the catechesis, ambivalence toward the power of principled conviction. One abandons the usual paradigm of belief, ignores the conventional understandings, delivers incoherent theory.
  • Ketu-yuti-Kuja * surrendered championship, empty actions, disconnected brothers, unsustainable domination, apathetic competition, disability, unfulfilled innovation, impermanent conquest, incomplete birth, spiritual liberation via forward movement

Occupies the creative, performing, intelligent, charismatic 5th-from-Chandra

Although theologically (9) Williams has been mainly an academic investigator into problematics due to critical, reportage Kanya-Mangala, may be expected to produce more edgy theological writing after retirement from public office due to dogma-dissolving Ketu in classroom-9
