BPL commentary

For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru 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 Jamitra, 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.

Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.

High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.

Instructing, Explaining, Describing

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.

Karkata-pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.

Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing (due to Brihaspati rules 6).

Themes of restoration of lost knowledge, gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81

"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.

In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty."

Distinctive features of the Nativity

Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse

= the philosophical-scientific Chandra in Purvabhadrapada = lagnesha

in bhava-8 in an exceptionally complex cluster. * wrote about "eastern" spiritual initiations (8) while living in "western" body and culture. His books did not become internationally popular until after his death, when the western hippie movement with its chemical hallucinogens began to experience 'altered states' of awareness. Hesse's oeuvre is still widely read in both English and German due to his ability to describe an evolutionary process of transformative consciousness in the young adult mind.

Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse * Somana-yuti-Shani + Kuja-yuti-Rahu. Dad was older and already retired from his first career, Hermann was the product of dad's second marriage. In modern terms dad would have been considered depressed, and Hermann experienced his dad's concern as lacking (Ketu). The total effect is parental neglect. Importantly, the very experience of difficulty connecting (Ketu) with an empowered but unloving dad provided an impetus toward Hesse's literary explorations of male-to-male relationships in unbalanced authority roles.


Hermann Hesse undated, elder

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Mithunaya * Mithra * neighbor, companion
  • Surya in bhava-12 * center of Other-Worlds, brightly contemplative, focus on seclusion, invisible light-source provides guidance, intuitive entitlements, intelligence for private prayer, eye on imagination


Hesse accounted his father to be a difficult man.

Although working for a German mission, Dad was of Russian ancestry Surya in bhava-12 ++ Budha the ruler of Surya occupies 12th-from-Surya = dad is a foreigner. He served as a religious foreign missionary (12) for the first decades of his career. After years of doing missionary work, dad acquired ownership of a publishing bookstore Surya-Mithunaya in Germany.

Dad's second marriage is indicated by Hermann's Zukra-1 = his beautiful mother = 2nd-from-Surya. Dad had been widowed, and Hermann was a child of dad's second marriage. Pitrikaraka Surya rules Ketu-2 widowhood

Chandra-Kumbha-8 holds a 5/9 angle from Surya-Mithunaya-12 suggesting that Hesse's two parents were deeply complex and private people individually; however, their union was mutually beneficial and growth-oriented.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka


  • Chandra-Kumbha * comforted rhythmic pulsing network linkage
  • Chandra in Purvabhadrapada pada 1-2-3 * comforted by expansive understanding * protectors of philosophical caretaking, charitable parenting, shelter for teachers, broad perspective on human needs
  • Chandra in classroom-8 * comfort in crisis * familiar with catastrophic events * needs to feel the pulse of repeating identity transformation * soothed by secrecy * accustomed to regular routines of upheaval * seeks the deep rhythm of initiations * acculturated to exploratory occult sensitivities * need for unsettling discoveries * nourished by self-reinvention * emotionally attuned to patterns of undulating shakti-shocks
  • Somana-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally competitive, sensitive to brotherly figures, needs direct forward movement, invigorates the undulating routine, soothed by pioneering innovation, feels like a champion
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted * pressured by punitive authority figures * sensitive to class boundaries * soothed by structure * needs rigid routines * heavy maternal workload * comfortable with elders * familiar with strict hierarchies * mother emotionally limited * needs rules * feels like a worker
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient, sensitive to exotic figures, needs exciting opportunities, soothed by unusual environments, undulating desires, craves nurturing, feels exceptional


Hesse's parents were devotional religious missionaries focused on transforming the unbaptized into the indoctrinated. Chandra-Kumbha-8 rebirth = mom ++ Surya-Mithunaya-12 interiority, prayer = dad. According to Hesse, his parents were deeply committed to their missionary work, but young Hermann outgrew simple catechisms very early in life. Mom would have been an exceptionally complex, demanding, punitive, risk-seeking, emotionally withholding (nishturabashi yoga) and socially camouflaged person due to Somana-yuti-Kuja + Somana-yuti-Shani + Somana-yuti-Rahu So many graha in bhava-8 indicates a significant trauma pattern for the mother.

Born into a more liberated generation, Hesse pursued the theme of occult transformation implicit in her mother's personality.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership expectations

Hesse had a frustrating marital life that was compounded by mental health and substance addiction issues - not only his but also his partners. He was married three times.

7th-from-Chandra-8 = marriage-1 = bhava-2 Simha contains Ketu-2

Hesse's first wife Maria Bernoulli (married 1904-1923) was a highly intelligent personality descended from the distinguished mathematical lineage. She was an independent photographer and businesswoman, nine years his elder (his Karkata lagna tends toward elder spouse) .

Yet Hermann perceived her as incoherent = 7th-from-Chandra-8 contains Ketu, and Ketu receives a fearsome amount of drishti including a daunting Kuja Dosha from Kuja-8. Furthermore, ruler of 7th-from-Chandra = Surya-12, confusing his perceptions with unfinished business from his withdrawn, rather negligent father.

By Hesse's reckoning, Mia suffered slightly from mental illness at the onset of their marriage, then increasingly toward the end of marriage as she endured a severe breakdown due to divorce stress and his unwillingness to help with the children.

They divorced during Ketu-Surya bhukti. Being in the throes of Ketu Mahadasha, Hesse abandoned their home and their children, dispersing (Ketu) his three sons into the homes of relatives. Ketu-2 indicates that "the person or thing to be abandoned" is the family's culture, traditions, lineage..

Interestingly, once the karma of the first marriage was completed, Mia Bernoulli recovered her senses and lived normally with no recurrence of her supposed psychosis. There is some reason to question the diagnosis of schizophrenia applied to Mia, since her "breakdown" occurred only once, during a catastrophic divorce from the admittedly self-obsessed and vindictive, alcoholic Hesse. From a Jyotisha perspective it could be said that these partners had already agreed to develop the drama of mental illness, divorce, abandonment, and breaking up their family. Hesse's first wife was already programmed to be heavily overburdened and un-connectable.

It seems that the main cause of so-called mental illness was more likely Hesse's Ketu-7 dissociative disconnected approach to marriage contracts.

2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra-8 = marriage-2 = bhava-9 Meena

In 1924, after eight years alone, Hesse remarried the celebrated singer Ruth Wenger. .

The un-connect-able theme continued somewhat in marriage-2. Singer Ruth Werner = represented by 2nd-from-Chandra = 9 theatre. Dharmesha = risk-expander Guru-Mula-6 suggesting numerous infidelities along with a flourishing career for this spouse due to Guru in 10th-from-9th. The union was short-lived and she returned to her singing performances (9, celebrity).

Second lifepartnership 8th from Zukra = troubled, brief, and explosive due to Kumbha Shani, Kumbha Rahu, Kumbha-Chandra, Kumbha Mangala in 8th-from- Zukra .

In 1928, Hesse wrote a poem Einer einstigen Geliebten about his second wife (#2 of 3) Ruth Wenger to whom he was married only briefly, and unhappily: Considering the intense planetary population of his bhava-8, it is more likely that he is writing not to his new wife, but to himself.

"You celebrated the Sacrament with me,

but lust appeared to you along with love,

therefore you did not unveil me.

You never revealed to me the anxious riddle of your being and confiding in love,

You always remained a mystery to me."

9th-from-7th-from-Chandra-8 = marriage-3 = bhava-4 Thula stability, security, routine

According to Hesse, his third marriage to the German-speaking Ukranian-born art historian Ninon Auslander was his only experience of stability and security in marriage. When they married in 1931 after several years of cohabiting, Hesse felt he knew Ninon and could relax with her into a comfortable routine (4). His bhava-4 = 3rd marriage is ruled by his regulated Pushya Zukra-1 thus providing the domestic (4) and personal (1) harmony that was unobtainable in marriages 1-and-2.


Chandra-8 ++ Surya-12 indicate challenges with both parents;

Chandra-Kumbha typically suffers a degree of disagreement, frustration, or friction with the parents because Chandra rules the emotionally challenging 6th-from-Chandra

As lagnesha, Kumbha Chandra in bhava-8 is even more acutely driven into the discovery of hidden knowledge (8-occult) and Chandra drives a lifelong process of self-re-invention that is both exhilarating (Rahu) and exhausting (Shani) due to the impact of social structures upon the individual consciousness.

Chandra in Purvabhadrapada takes an incarnation expecting to feel attracted to the large-scale, social-scientific, sociological perspective of philosophers.

Somana-yuti-Kuja + Somana-yuti-Shani + Somana-yuti-Rahu provides a lifetime of relentless, emotionally motivated conflicts and identity-transformations . The results may benefit the masses and the classes (Kumbha). Yet one may be in the throes of social or personal upheaval for the duration of the lifetime.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka Yogakaraka Mangala rules 5-intelligrnce, creativity, celebrity ++ 10 social visibility, respect, reputation, leadership

  • Mangala-Kumbha * vigorous pursuit of community activism * warrior for economic progress * proactive linking * push toward regulated systems * pursues profitable roles * dominating energy in social networking * conquest of marketplace interactions * champion of distributed associations
  • Mangala in bhava-8 * drive toward discovery, pursuit of rebirth, revolutionary dynamics, invasive transformations, vigorous revelations, energized mysterious conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Chandra * invigorated feelings * energized intuition * dynamic nurturance * masculine force joins parental care * potential for aggressive emotionalized actions , potential for aggressive emotionalized actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Shani * repressed movements, energized rules, dynamic structuring, masculine force joins disciplined regulation, potential for aggressive or punitive reactions to change , potential for aggressive or punitive reactions to change
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * thrill of muscular action * excited competition * energized pretense * dynamic desires * masculine force joins opportunistic ambition * potential for aggressive pursuit of privileges
  • Ketu-yuti-Kuja * energized pilgrimage, dynamic wandering, masculine force joins apathetic surrender, potential for aggressive annihilation of initiations

Mangala rules Vrischika-5 = 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-5 politics, literary art, publications, celebrity, prizes

Mangala-8 rules Mesha 10th navamsha * Hesse's characters were primarily young men involved in inner discovery, often via complex relationships with other male figures (Kuja)

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka


  • Budha-Vrishabha * financial communications * articulation of tonal * talks about stored goods * discusses collected assets * delivers descriptive evaluations * sends historic messages about worth and value * signals harmonious sound frequencies * hands-arms-shoulders send gathering gestures
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy and ecology, distributive and associative networks * social participation linkage, describer of friendship  and voluntary connections , explainer of gains and goals, delivers instructions for interlinked systems, talks about large assemblies + webs of community 

Busy Budha rules Karakamsha * bhava-3 writing = Kanya-navamsha-swamsha containing uttama-Budha

Busy Budha rules Arudha lagna = bhava-3 writing = Kanya

Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse * many successful novels and political essays * 1946 Nobel Prize in Literature

A powerful Budha shows Shad-Bala materializing effectiveness

Budha-11 Atmakaraka = earnings = Budha rules 12-imagination, meditation, distant lands ++ 3-publications

Hesse's father (Surya-Mithunaya-12) owned a publishing company. After a few early years working as a clerk in bookstores, his earnings were derived exclusively via his own book sales. Hesse lived until age 85, he traveled extensively, lived on a garden estate, and he never practiced any other job. Income entirely from full-time writing. He stopped writing except for a few brief reflections on childhood, in his early 60's,

Yet his third wife assiduously catalogued his writings, and she ensured that his literary contracts were honored. Thus Hesse continued to earn from royalties as his books went into translation editions.

Budha rules the arudha lagna, the karakamsha, and bhava-3 (publication) + 12 (distant lands). Virtually all of his books are still in print, and his estate continues to collect revenues from new editions.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Dhanuzya * mulatrikona * much philosophy, broad worldview, doctrine of inclusive diversity, humanistic guidance, expands the scope of belief, multiple theories, many sacred teachings
  • Guru in bhava-6 * much ministry of service, many ailments and physicians, much medication, abundant digestive imbalance, many grievances, numerous accusations, , extensive animosity and distress

Guru in bhava-6 occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra-Kumbha. Hesse had a great many drinking buddies.

During a time of terrible war (6) while writing from neutral Switzerland, Hesse provided anti-dehumanizing German voice within the violent discourse of annihilation of enemies and race-hated. Guru-Mula-6 also contributed to his self-medicating alcohol addiction and multiplied the number of divorces.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Karkata * appreciation of comforting routine, likes to nourish, attracted to homeowners and farmers, pleasures of secure borders, enjoys rhythmic seasons, aesthetic of domestic arrangements
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; graciously feminine qualities of the appearance, enjoys athletic style of balancing, vigorous physical adjustments, appreciation of new birth * identified with beauty, equity, and fairness

Zukra-1 located in 6/8 from Chandra-8 Hesse struggled with alcoholism throughout his life

Zukra-1-Karkata enjoys the sweet pleasures of home and hearth, finding security ultimately in the third marriage = bhava-4 Thula ruled by comfortable, identity-grounded Zukra-1

Hesse commenting upon his lifetime search for self-medication including women, music, and alcohol:

"I found some consolation or narcotic. Sometimes it was a woman, sometimes a good friend - yes, you too once helped me that way - at other times it was music or applause in the theater.

But now these things no longer give me pleasure and that is why I drink.

I could never sing without first having a couple of drinks, but now I can also not think, talk, live and feel tolerably well without first having a couple of drinks."

Zukra-1-Pushya is stable and economically advantageous for Hesse. Zukra rules bhava-11 friendships, community = the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra

Zukra-1 rules 11-friendships

His literary oeuvre contains mostly works about his early friendships and education, including the Das Glasperlenspiel * Glass Bead Game (1943) for which Hesse won the 1946 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Kumbha * moolatrikona 0-20 deg * heavy old economic systems, obliged to conform to the marketplace rules, pressure to maintain social linkage, vital energy compression stress zone = skin-nerves, strictly imposed regulations for electro-magnetic networking, limitations on earnings distribution, must materialize past-to-future gridwork, must sustain lowest-common-denominator proletarian communities, rigidly slow elder friends and mentors, must continue to achieve social-material goals 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-yuti-Chandra * nishturabhashi yoga * resistance to protectors * pragmatic routines * austere childhood home * limited creature-comforts * blocked nutrition * burden of guilt toward mother * emotional withholding * punitive parents * class-structured ethnicity * * uncomfortable discipline * oppressed sensitivities * dried flow * needs rules + regulations * frozen feelings * strict foundational schooling * proletarian culture
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, pragmatic actions, cautious innovation, limited progress, physical discipline, constrained movement, regulated competition. Tension from contradictory push-pull in the body-personality.
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * resistance against ambition, formally regulated cultural mixing, disciplined thrills, class-based limitations upon privilege, socially constrained opportunism, shimmering illusion of systematic conformity, irregular achievements, over-reaching elders, restricted risks

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

  • Rahu-Kumbha (swakshetra) * shimmering illusion of webwork * craving for community * over-reaching voluntary connections * mirage of material science * fabulous marketplace associations * extraordinary friendliness * intriguing ecologies * mask of lawfully interlinked systems * fascinating networks * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of  futurism, social participation linkage, economic distributions, community-knitting, socialite-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-8 * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual secrets recycling, rebirth, reinvention; desires a special, important, therapeutic role in transformative, hidden, revolutionary, catastrophic identity changes. Remarkable in-laws, inheritance, alimonies. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious family of the partners. Rahu the Poseur may pose ass a tantric initiator, disaster manager, keeper of dangerous secrets ,identity-changing healer, or holder of secret empowerments.
  • Chandra-yuti-Rahu * amplified emotion, magnified familiarity exotic habits, tricky comforts, opportunistic mother, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking, hypnotic rhythms, emotionally attuned to cross-cultural mixing, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of sympathetic caretaking
  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition, magnified championship, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inventive, dynamic energy, hypnotic attack, engineered force of cross-cultural mixing
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, magnified systematics, exotic rules, tricky regulations, opportunistic elders, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of strictly lawful structures

Hermann Hesse suffered highly complex lifetime nerve disorders (Kumbha nerves skin)= Chandra-yuti-Rahu + Shani-yuti-Rahu + Kuja-yuti-Rahu = dual impulses of passion and order

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Singha * dissociates from creative performance, incomplete entitlement, empty intelligence, dissolute brilliance, not limited by celebrity roles, ignores restriction on political opinion, applies theatrical solipsism to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-2 * wanders from the preserved values, disperses family-knowledge-treasury collections, absent from lineage history, irrelevance of the mouth, the foods, and the stored goods; disregards conventional boundaries of speech-language

Ketu located in 7th-from-Chandra can show dissociative neglect toward the mate.

Commenting to a friend on the subject of his loving third marriage, wrote (translated from German):

  • "My marriage is nothing else than what I conceive a marriage can be: a capitulation after a long resistance, an act of surrender."

Ketu-2 does not point to hostility but rather to disorientation and a general ennui, specifically the lack in interest (Ketu) in collecting treasures, preserving history, and maintaining the genetic lineage. Nevertheless, bhava-2 receives drishti from Chandra + Kuja + Shani + Rahu + Guru.

Political narratives, values

Therefore, Hesse is deeply involved with German cultural values, language, fine arts, history, collections, and all the patterns of bhava-2. He is involved with 2 and an exponent of the values of his lineage but purports to be disinterested, disengaged in the classic apathy of his two-wars generation.

Ketu-Simha-2 political values, family-lineage * Hesse's proclaimed an ethically ambiguous "politics of detachment". Hesse was criticized for not being more active in his opposition to Nazi violence. However, he quietly aided artists and writers by spiriting them out of Germany during the terrors. Ketu's ruler Surya-12 can be very active behind-the-scenes, and Hesse's Zukra-1 rules 11-community empowering him to activate the networking system that brought fellow creatives into Swiss safety.

Ketu-2 does not harm Hesse financially due to Zukra-1 rules-11 which provides income via arts, women, literature, banking, and music throughout his life.
