"I will build a car for the great multitude.
It will be large enough for the family, but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise.
But it will be low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one - and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces."

Masculine Public-Figure Examples
Vasu - Slaviztha - Avittam - Hrsikesha
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 positionsr.
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. Like genteel śrāviṣṭha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. When Dhaniṣṭha fellows choose an entertainment career, it is often full of drumming, loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and dominated by men.
Unlike demure Soma-ruled śrāviṣṭha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic, competitive movement. These men 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.
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.
Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.
Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala. Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.
Themes of band-of-brothers, 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
son Edsel Ford born 06-Nov-1893 was Henry Ford's only recognized child . Edsel Ford operated the Ford Motor Company during 1919-1943
QUOTATION 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.
They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

Interview with Henry Ford in the San Francisco Examiner. August 26, 1928
"I adopted the theory of Reincarnation when I was twenty six. Religion offered nothing to the point. Even work could not give me complete satisfaction.
Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives.
If you preserve a record of this conversation, write it so that it puts men' s minds at ease. I would like to communicate to others the calmness that the long view of life gives to us ." [end quote]

Henry Ford was ever the political champion of Eurocentric folkways, automobiles, and the roadways that supported transport Surya-Karkata.
Dad was a sensible farmer Surya-Karkata.
The patriarch wanted Henry to assume operation of the family's fertile, productive farmland near Detroit, Michigan. In dad's mind, farming was a culturally dignified career. Dad was reputedly not supportive of Henry's aspirations, and let HF know that his outlandish views of the world were wrong. Criticizing [Surya in bhava-6]
After a few years of trying to satisfy his dad's expectations by farming in the tried-and-true way, HF [age 28, Rahu opp] and his wife Clara left the farm permanently. during Guru-Guru svabhukti.

[folk reputation 10th-from-Chandra = harmonious patronage, worldview, paternalistic Tulā-9 ]
Following his stupendous ascent into industrial dominance [Rahu in bhava-10 fueled by 4th-drishti from [Mangala-Singha][7, contracts] HF was treated like a great patriarch  -- almost deified.
Newspapers idealized his genius, while downplaying his paranoia and cruelty to workers. School textbooks lavished praise upon HF as the purported inventor of the automobile [he was not, but Rahu-10 can appear so].
HF preached a moralistic gospel of right-living to his thousands-of-workers [Karkata-6] whom he paternalistically policed, and treated with contempt.
Chandra-12 and Surya-6 exchange mutual drishti, suggesting that the parents formed a partnership of opposites, each modeling a different but mutually balanced opposing worldview to their young son Henry Ford.
Chandra in Śrāvaṇa rogesha, suggesting that for the first 12 years of HF's life, both mom and dad would have been sick and overworked with children and farm-duties [Karkata].
Mom's priority - as always for Shravana - would have been the maintenance of an approved, customary reputation. Mom died HF's age 12, while giving birth to HF's younger sibling.
Chandra's ruler [Budha in bhava-6] = parents talking about their grievances, overwork, and arguing.
MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Clara Bryant Ford, widely recognized philanthropist with a special mission of aid to mothers and children [Karkata]
Clara Bryant supported HF socially, from their earliest struggling days before HF's industrial ideas bore fruit, until their materially opulent conclusion as one of the wealthiest couples in America.
Clara met social expectations at each stage of their hierarchical ascent [Makara]. She organized a society entertainment programme for each season, and stayed current with the latest fashions.
However, Clara's overt agenda was her independent charity work to aid the laboring masses of Detroit. Her society connections became funding sources for her respected service works, and a prestige invitation from Clara meant that a donation was expected.
Despite being vastly wealthy, HF was compulsively stingy and mean toward his laborers [Shukra-Shani-Guru in Kanya-8] . And they hated him for it.
Clara was effectively HF's enemy . The decent pay of which he deprived [Kanya] his workers and their families, she funneled back into their healthcare and education, via philanthropy.
The marriage was unhappy, as would be expected from Chandra-12 while yuvati-pati Surya occupies 6. They had one child early in the union. Karkata-Surya in 7th-from-Chandra can be morally self-righteous, especially when mistreated.
HF had liaisons = [nicha-Shukra-yuti-Shani] [Guru-yuti-Shani] 
Clara's role in his life was increasingly marginalized . However, Chandra in Śrāvaṇa is notably careful with public opinion, and HF was discreet. [Harsha Yoga]
Gossip about HF's son with his long-time intimate secretary was suppressed. Ironically, Clara's highly effective and honored service-ministry aimed to correct the poverty and disease caused by her husband's factory labor practices.
But in those days, moneyed social rank [Makara] was intimidating, and few complained about this injustice [Harsha Yoga]

Ford was known for his tendency to not disclosure the full scope of his undertakings, particularly his intent to use design schemes that had already failed. [nicha-Shukra, unbalanced arrangements] Ford needed money [Shukra] to build his engines. However, his characteristic mystification led investors to have an incomplete grasp of what they were contractually buying into.
Shukra's Yogakaraka status is a double-edged sword for automobiles.
Because Shukra rules 9 = 6th-from- 4-transport, HF bankrupted some earlier investors.
Yet those who invested when his designs [Shukra] were more mature [Shani] became substantially enriched.
