Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Dhaniṣṭha - Delphinus - Vasu


For Dhaniṣṭha births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Dhaniṣṭha-born often respond to a deep inner fear [Shani] which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition [Kuja]. The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-directed and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Dhaniṣṭha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel śrāviṣṭha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demure Soma-ruled śrāviṣṭha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniṣṭha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniṣṭha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and dominated by men.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-lands-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic [4] and driven to achieve profits [11]

they are often found in real-estate [4] education [4] agriculture [4] transportation [4] police + defense industry [4] minerals + mining [4] or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain [11] is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor.

Since Mangala activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism [4-11] . Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala


Themes of brotherhood, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation , sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniṣṭha


from Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

" Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniṣṭha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops."

Perceived Infallibility

Surya randhresha rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

AC was a complex man. His genius and faults were both writ-large . A major fault observed by his contemporaries was AC's tendency to believe himself infallible * Surya-yuti-Ketu


Dad's craft of hand-weaving was suddenly displaced by industrial automated looms, putting an entire generation of hand-weavers out of work. Surya-yuti-Ketu displacement.

The family was comfortable during Andra's early childhood, then plunged into penury and hunger during his school years. Young child AC and his family then made the difficult transition from their predictable and reliable Scottish village [Chandra] to the bustling and complex and typically impoverished American industrial morass. [Rahu]

Parents * Surya -Chandra economic shocks

  • [Surya in bhava-11] starts as a strong earner.

  • Chandra matrikaraka + Surya activates 8th-from-Chandra. Dad may have been a shockingly transformative influence for his mother.
  • When his father stopped working Surya-yuti-Ketu. Immediately, his mom became the primary breadwinner.

Children 6/8 Guru-Chandra ++ 5 receives Drishti of Surya-yuti-Ketu + Mangala

  • Rare in his generation and rare for a man of his financial status, AC produced only one child -- ten years after a late-in-life marriage.

[Comfortable Caretaking Chandra]

Chandra yuvati-pati occupies 1, suggesting the identity of a dealer, broker, negotiator, trader.

  • Most of Carnegie's fortune was capitalized from stock deals.
  • Born into Chandra Mahadasha with Chandra-1, his mother, his land of birth, and the morality of his root folk would all play dominant roles in AC's remarkable his personality development


A uniquely defining feature of 'AC's life history was his intensely close and often inseparable relationship to his fiercely protective mother Chandra in classroom-1 rules mother AND partnerships.

The most influential and definitive person in Andrew Carnegie's life, according to his peers and observers, was Andrew's mother. She was his parent, his roommate, and his primary partner until her death.

Asserting herself as his only legitimate partner and protector, Momma Carnegie regularly accompanied AC to business meetings, throwing his business associates into a state of social paralysis for fear of offending her. Momma joined AC on summer-long Scottish holidays; and for decades she shared his large New York City hotel suite.

  • Momma famously prevented AC's marriage opportunities, declaring in public "there's no woman good enough for my Andra!"

At AC's age 50, with his elderly mothe in decline, AC began a formal courtship with the daughter of a fellow industrialist who was 21 years his junior. Notoriously, the Momma did everything in her powers to prevent the union. Sensing strong opposition, AC's young fiancée was determined to break the alliance. Finally his sole surviving sibling died and within only weeks, Momma died. AC, then 51, arranged a small private marriage ceremony in 1887 Shani-Shukra bhukti

Marriage * [7th from Chandra-1]

Chandra in Śrāvaṇa - Hari-1 ruling Karkata-7 suggests a quietly lawful and conventional spouse. The relationship was quietly affectionate rather than passionate. The couple enjoyed a simple, non-opulent lifestyle with very little entertaining. One child was born into the union, 10 years after the wedding.


During the era of crony capitalism a sociable, polite, reputation-alert Chandra in Śrāvaṇa - Hari would have been a valuable placement for deal-making and forming partnerships. In his teenage jobs, young AC was noticed for his well-formed handwriting [Budha yuti [uchcha] Shani formal structures] ++ his pleasant appearance and charisma [Surya-Shukra.] Most important to his employers were his *listening* [Śrāvaṇa] capabilities, which allowed AC to decode incoming telegraph messages in real-time, by ear, without having to write them.

  • Yet Ketu-yuti-Kuja can also manifest Ketu's blatant disregard for consequences, along with a stunning lack of empathy.
  • As one of the materially richest men in the world, Carnegie used brutal violence to break labor strikes.
  • AC's bloody actions forced thousands of his employees into poverty by destroying their livelihoods.

Mangala-11 = band of brothers

Carnegie belonged to a community [11] of investors who controlled most of the industrial assets of late 1800's northeastern USA. He manipulated the various personal relationships between the financially privileged men, breaking promises at will [Guru-6 many broken contracts] . He enjoyed dominating this group -- but never so much that he was the only player left [Shukra-Mangala] .

From an elite social-authority position, Budha makes announcements, delivers instructions, provides explanations about [6] disagreements, accusations [9] sacred beliefs, principled understanding

Budha in bhava-10 activates 6 occupies 10 == conflict and violence afflict the public reputation

A century after his decease, AC is remembered equally for his brutal mistreatment of lowly workers and his extraordinary social philanthropy.

  • AC's legacy flows partly from his charities, due largely to AC's flamboyant style of imprinting his name on universities and libraries.
  • However, AC's violent labor strike-breaking and destruction of families also exemplifies the zero-empathy narcissism of self-centric " success" .

During the Budha Mahadasha 1907-1911: AC dispersed his remaining funds of US$125 million into the charitable Carnegie Corporation.

Busy Budha activates 9th-from-Chandra == patronage of schoolteachers.

  • In particular Carnegie intended to fund educational and technological advancements. Carnegie Teacher's Pension Fund created, endowed with US$10 million.
  • Although it looked brilliantly self-sustaining at the time, this fund unexpectedly and quickly disappeared

Budha also activates 6th-from-Chandra = impoverishment of schoolteachers = collapse of equity. The financial problem [6] occurred due to extraordinary actuarial gains in longevity of Americans, especially the long-living group of women teachers.

Guru drishti enters 10-12-2

shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Chandra-1-angle to Guru-6.

[Guru in bhava-6] indicates many injustices, many crimes, many exploitations

Despite tremendous treasuries and broad public respect, AC's life and legacy were deeply afflicted by ongoing accusations of exploitation, pollution, hypocrisy and conflict.

AC made his first fortune from opportunities presented by the cruelty and devastation accompanying the USA Civil War.

[Guru in bhava-6] expands communications

  • 3-commerce, announcements, publications, evangelism

  • emotionally motivated evangelical communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra

[Guru-Mithuna] activates 12 * bending the facts, fantasy statistics, visionary lies

AC was an inveterate evangelist of the capitalist ideology [Guru ideology] who played fast and loose with the facts. A majority of the statistics which he used to inspire his reading audience were either exaggerated or outright manufactured. Guru-Mithuna-6 = many mis-statements. In his publishing campaign as in his larger career, AC seemed to believe [Guru] that the end justified the means.

Copious writing * fantasy facts

In addition to managing [3] the world's largest corporations [of their times] AC wrote constantly throughout his life.

AC's publications included several best-selling inspirational celebrations of capitalist economics.

Brimming with optimism and faith in human endowment, AC's easy-reading, vernacular-register books were targeted to the American common worker.

AC's uplifting, fact-free, anecdote-filled sermons described the glorious benefits of Free Market commerce, as the final perfection of human evolution and the savior of humankind.

In his view, the most fabulous result of Free Market society was social inclusivity [Guru] and end of race-culture bigotry.

AC's statistical " facts" were adjusted to suit the aim of his inspirational message. Millions of devoted readers embraced AC's way-showing paternalistic guidance [Guru.

However, most of his claims about individuals benefiting from the unrestrained, predatory capitalism of his day were drawn from his Calvinistic salvation fantasies [12] .

  • Surya-yuti-Mangala + Mangala shoots drishti-eye into bhava-6 = unbridled confidence in one's own beliefs [Guru beliefs]
  • Guru-6 ruled by Shani-yuti-Budha-10 points to a philosophical materialism which produce both philosophical justification for materialism+++ expansive generosity.

Messenger Guru-6 appeals to the workers

Although rife with speculation and faux-facts, Carnegie's inspirational writings were enormously popular with his proletarian audience.

AC's own brother complained that Andra believed himself nearly infallible. And so did many of AC's worshipful readers. Yet * [Vimala Yoga] protected AC from culpability.

Guru-6 rules 3-12 - Vimala Yoga protects

Considered a shrewd player who would break any agreement for personal advantage, AC trusted no one and exploited everyone. Nevertheless, [Vimala Yoga] is highly protective, and AC was never personally harmed by his own expansive [Guru] engagement with hypocrisy and crime.

Far from being a sign of refined character, AC's treasury was derived mainly via crony capitalism = a small coterie of entreasured friends [mainly frenemies] engaged in a lifetime of insider trading


Steel industrialist, evangelist of Capitalist Ideology Gospel of Wealth 1835-1919 Andrew Carnegie was an inveterate preacher upon the *moral* virtues of economic capitalism as the order of civilization which brought out the best behaviors of decent folk. The fact that AC's vicious strike-breaking and hostile financial takeovers had murdered, crippled and starved thousands of workers and their families did not disturb the passionate enthusiasm of his many sermons.

Bhava-3 cohort ruled by Guru-6

Worked in various collaborative arrangements with brother [3] ; teamed with a cohort [3] of investors, a small club [3] of capitalists in the rapidly industrializing northeast USA. Within this group it was said that the members frequently betrayed each other; yet new opportunities for expansion returned them to new distrusting arrangements.

Younger brother Thomas * 3rd-from-Chandra ruled by Guru-6

AC enjoyed a profoundly a codependent relationship with his business-partner brother [3] Thomas Carnegie. Thomas is represented in AC's nativity by 3rd-from-3rd-from-Chandra = the [uchcha] Rahu-5.

AC was known to have been extremely critical of his younger brother Thomas to the point of bullying. Yet, AC regularly invested Thomas as a full partner with heavy business responsibilities. Apparently, AC was trying try to force young Thomas to fail. However, Thomas never failed.

Thomas became a nouveau-riche robber baron along with AC's entire cohort. Thomas was said to have been quietly capable yet perhaps depressed under the constant pressure from his brother. AC invested his brother with heavy management and supervisory responsibilities, which Thomas handled admirably according to contemporaries. Still, AC was harrassingly critical toward Thomas. Peers noted that although a very wealthy businessman, Thomas died of exhaustion .AC was impossible to satisfy

Sadly, Thomas became a clinical alcoholic [3rd-from-Chandra ruled by Guru-6] . He died of pneumonia, the father of nine children, age 43.

AC bullied [Surya] and intimidated his sibling Surya + Mangala ego-aggression. Although a capable businessman, financially privileged and respected in his community, and father of young children, young Thomas Carnegie died of alcoholism indicated by Guru-6. Most observers agreed that Thomas was driven to drink by the relentless abuse heaped upon him by empathy-absent Andrew. Ketu-yuti-Kuja ++ Kuja drishti to Guru-6

Andrew Carnegie age 43 in 1878, having made huge profits from the Civil War bloodshed, holding a fashionable stovepipe hat

A private letter from Carnegie "to himself" from 1868 diary entry

[note to reader: Carnegie never actually carried through on the plan declared below. He continued to take a huge profit from his vast investments, and spend luxuriously as he wished. The below proposal does, however, illustrate AC's gifts as a writer and a preacher, highlighting cluster of graha along the axis of Rahu-5-theatre, the Shimmering Illusion of Intelligence.

[Begin Quote] Carnegie Libraries :

" I propose to take an income no greater than $50,000 per annum! Beyond this I need ever earn, make no effort to increase my fortune, but spend the surplus each year for benevolent purposes! Let us cast aside business forever, except for others. Let us settle in Oxford and I shall get a thorough education, making the acquaintance of literary men. I figure that this will take three years active work.

I shall pay especial attention to speaking in public. We can settle in London and I can purchase a controlling interest in some newspaper or live review and give the general management of it attention, taking part in public matters, especially those connected with education and improvement of the poorer classes.

Man must have no idol and the amassing of wealth is one of the worst species of idolatry! No idol is more debasing than the worship of money! Whatever I engage in I must push inordinately; Therefore, should I be careful to choose that life which will be the most elevating in its character.

To continue much longer overwhelmed by business cares and with most of my thoughts wholly upon the way to make more money in the shortest time, must degrade me beyond hope of permanent recovery. I will resign business at thirty-five, but during these ensuing two years I wish to spend the afternoons in receiving instruction and in reading systematically!" [end Quote]
