Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Aśvini - Dasra


For Aśvini births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing intuitively.

" and now for something completely different"

Innovating Observer

Akasha-ruled chaps express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the observant, nebulizing filters of Ketu. Dasra fellows are famed for their pioneering inventions in medical, scientific, or technological fields. They are often obsessed with tools and gadgets. The 4th pada are nearly always physicians, nurses, or herbalists.

Competitive and irascible, often reclusive and disregarding of others' feelings, boldly productive Dasra are found in medicine, engineering, scientific instrumentation, and all species of gadgetry.

Azvikini are often found in medical or veterinary environments such as pharmacies, laboratories, hospitals, surgeries, and clinics. Due to their psychic [Ketu] capability to engage with astral patterns, Asvakini can also serve as medical intuitives and spiritual healers.

When looking for new ideas, they pursue an intuitive instinct to tap into the Akashic grid. Unconcerned with conforming to conventional expectations, they may seem selfish or rude. However, their job is to innovate, not to submit to old paradigms. Criticism rarely affects them.

Dasra-born h ear the psychic instructions which guide their product design, surgical cutting, or drug formulation. Then, Aśvini actively pushes [Kuja] the ethereal vision into material realization. Whatever endeavor they choose to pursue, Aśvini tend to initiate new methods and produce new things .

Azvakini fellows tend to prefer the freedom of bachelorhood. If they choose to marry, the mate shoulders most of the family duties. Within relationships, much depends upon their Chandra.

Themes of eccentricit y, invention, irritability, and psychic vitality may contextualize Aśvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśvini - Dasra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 84

" ... a happy carefree disposition,

  • very intelligent,

  • in fact a rather above average person in this respect.

He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that

  • he will seldom have to worry about money matters.

In spite of his ability to achieve success,

  • he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements."

A showman and promoter of electronic devices. Aware of a new civilization emerging.

[Surya-Kumbha] = primarily a transmitter [Arka] of electronic and economic arrays. Professor Arka loses some of His natural solar confidence due to the strict materialism of Shani-ruled Kumbha.

Sparkling Surya located in svakshetra of Shani [Kumbha]++ Surya in a navamsha of Shani [Varuna-2]

For a masculine nativity, Surya in [Varuna-2] may have economic-connectivity genius paired with Shani-weakened confidence in one's ability to live by the bright light of Surya's certainty.

In other words, Surya here is uncertain of the true location of one's inner divine core. One tends rather to attribute the Self to the field of material perceptions.

  • tendency toward social dishonesty = cheerful willingness to game the system
  • [Surya-Kumbha] may] may presume that one personally [Surya] regulates [Kumbha] the revenue, rewards, earning, or profits
  • [Surya in bhava-11] displays of bright individuality and showmanship [Surya] within large, lawfully regulated distribution systems [Kumbha]
  • Surya occupies [Varuna-2]a highly gridworked navamsha ruled by Shani + Rahu who form a risk-taking, materialistic pair

BIO-DAD - SURYA [Surya in bhava-11]

Jobs' bio-dad = Abdulfattah Jandali.

As a grad student in economics [Surya-Kumbha-11], dad emigrated from Homs, Syria, into USA . At the time of baby Steve Jobs' birth, dad was completing his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison [Surya-Kumbha marketplace systems] .

Jandali later held several university teaching positions, including political economics instructor at University of Nevada.

Bio-dad Jandali did not remain in the academics industry. He switched into Nevada's casino industry [Surya in bhava-11 owns-and-aspects Simha-5 gambling] Within the casino system, Jandali held various roles such as restaurateur abd casino manager. He eventually held directing positions with a casino corporation.

Guru drishti [into Surya-11 and also into pitristhana] suggests multiple father-figures.

SPJ father-figures and his own adult fatherly conduct was somewhat scattered by Guru-yuti-Ketu-3 casting drishti into the financially ambitious [Mula-Rahu-yuti-Shukra] .

Paternal grandfather. [Shani in Bhava-7]

Father of Abdulfattah Jandali = 9th-from-Surya. paternal grand-father was said to have been a significantly wealthy businessman who lacked higher education. Shani-7 rules 10/11 boss/earner.

Inherent animosity with father is characteristic of [Chandra-Meena] because Surya rules [6th-from-Chandra-Meena].

For [Chandra-Meena], whatever is happening in Simha become psychically charged with the 6-amsha patterns of repudiation, accusation, and grievance.

Further enhanced likelihood of an adversarial father. For Chandra-12, then Simha becomes 5, suggesting the same emotional warfare pattern [6th-from-Chandra] can recur with the eldest child.

putrasthana-5-children = 6th-from-Chandra. Dad presumes an accusatory, unfair, prejudicial relationship to his child.

In a classicly self-referential NPD statement, bio-dad Jandali reportedly said that he had no interest in meeting his famous son SPJ, because he [dad] expected to be accused of seeking money from his offspring [6].

Typically, along the 6/8 axis, both parties are contemptuous.

In actions which suggest the underlying blaming-shaming patterns of clinical narcissism, SPJ publicly, contemptuously disavowed the bio-dad who had rejected him as an infant. Although aware of each other's identity and location, they never met as adults.


[Mula-Rahu-yuti-Shukra] in pitristhana is also a highly volatile combination, financially passionate pairing. The two father-figures are shown as

  • Mula-Rahu = bio-dad
  • Shukra = the stable, enduring Bonus dad.


8th-from-Surya can represent the next-step Father-figure = Bonus Dad.

  • 8th-from-Surya = Kanya-6
  • Also, consider conditions in 8th-from-pitristhana = bhava-4.

by SPJ's own account, Bonus-Dad was SPJ's Primary dad.

The adoptive father was a modest rank-and-file worker = Kanya-6. Bonus-Dad worked primarily as a machinist at a pre-Silicon-Valley laser factory. Adoptive father did extra work [Kanya] as a tow-truck driver and a " repo man" . Repo-man is a lock-breaker [6] who is paid to repossess the automobiles of those who failed to repay their car-loan [Kanya] . Failed loan contract = Kanya.

Dad converted the garage of the family home into an electronics tinkering workshop for teenager SPJ. Spare parts from the warehouses of early-stage Silicon Valley were easily obtained. [Kanya, filching]


Bright, Smart, Gamey, System-focused

[Surya-Kumbha] dramatic talent, center-stage confidence in vast assemblies. SPJ performed brilliantly at massive [Kumbha masses-and-classes] promotional conferences + electronics showcase events [Kumbha]

Surya-Kumbha = possessed of connectivity intelligence.

Yet, due to Shani's overbearing demand to serve the gridwork, one may struggle to maintain personal integrity.

Although potentially a genius of economies and ecologies, Surya-Kumbha-11 becomes self-referential [Surya] within distributive linkage groups [11] .

revenues, earnings, profits = perceived as a game [Surya] to be won [1-Mangala-Mesha champion] by out-smarting one's associates

  • Surya may become laser-focused on making system-decisions
  • friendships may be compromised by Surya's inability to see anything except the self

Surya creative empowerment within the existing marketplace gridwork

When SPJ and his mission-critical [but often unacknowledged] business partners entered the marketplace, computers cost millions of dollars. Their delicate components were stored in special air-cooled rooms. They were operated by mysterious program-coders who wrote obscure jargon.

Into this environment, SPJ envisioned a proletarian desktop-sized computer being used as a household appliance

  • SPJ envisioned the personal individual [Surya] digital computer as a common appliance similar to a modern car or a refrigerator.
  • Powered by the existing electrical grid [Kumbha] it could fuel creativity [Surya] at an unprecedented scale

Genius [Surya] for popular consumer economics [Kumbha]

More conventional investors rejected this populist idea [Surya-Kumbha] as not sensible within the existing consumer market.

  • Time would prove [Shani-Tula-7 proofs] that SPJ was right about computers becoming as commonplace as microwave ovens [Kumbha electronics]
  • SPJwas also right about computers becoming a tool for mass creative empowerment [Surya]
  • Those ideas [Surya] which SPJ was able to manifest in large-scale production [smartphones, music pods] did indeed help to induct the age of Kumbha, signaling a new era of civilization

Contradictory narratives of Surya vs. Kumbha

[Surya-Kumbha] can be a challenging placement.

Sparkling, unique Surya must try to express His personal, political, creative, dramatic, romantic, speculative genius within a regulated associative-distributive network, such as a a collective or a marketplace [Kumbha]

Occasionally, this pattern mismatch results in acts of personal-override of the community rules, producing dishonesty in obtainment of marketplace revenues.

Add the characteristic delight in out-smarting of friends, and there may be noticed a pronounced tendency to disregard basic morality [Karkata morality = 6th-from-Kumbha] .

  • Wikipedia " According to Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari had offered US$100 for each chip that was reduced in the machine. Jobs had little interest or knowledge in circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the bonus evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips. Much to the amazement of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, a design so tight that it was impossible to reproduce on an assembly line. At the time, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari had only given them $600 [instead of the actual $5000] and that Wozniak's share was thus $300 ."

Second-iteration of parents

  • Shani rules emotional comfort-zone = Chandra-Andromeda

The adoptive parents contributed a dignified working-class identity and stable schooling [uchcha-Shani-7] .

  • This pragmatic, normal, common-sense element of the upbringing [which likely would not have occurred with his university-educated bio-parents] ensured that computer + phone appliances were seem as common people's normal tools, not as the exclusive artifacts of the privileged elite.

Indeed, the smartphones are found among persons rich and poor, all classes and cultures.

  • SPJ's remarkable connectivity appliances [and their affordable imitations] promoted social equity on a previously inconceivable scale.

Typically, one born with randhresha in kalpasthana intends to become an agent of revolutionary change [8] .

This pattern of shocking, rebirthing, invigorating change tends to take a form consistent with the characteristics of the rules of 8-from-indriya-lagna.

In SPJ's case, the upheaval is driven by [Mangala-Mesha] [1] [financial-oratorical Aśvini-2] [mūlatrikoṇa]

championship innovations and revolutionary transgressions

Mangala lagnesha-randresha rejuvenation, sudden kinetic changes, initiation

SPJ left a mixed legacy of

  • randhresha revolutionary, paradigm-changing personal-electronics design innovations = 8 hidden, secretive, masked, unknown, undisclosed

  • lagnesha = drivingly competitive, often aggressive, occasionally reprehensible personal behavior.

  • in [2nd-from-Chandra] emotionally-driven, dynamic, forward-pushing communications

Chronic tension via the oppressive, irritating mutual drishti of Shani-and-Mangala.

  • Mesha-[Mangala in bhava-1] insists on vigorously moving forward regardless of cautionary signals
  • Tula-Shani-7- staunchly resists change to terms of fairly bargained contracts. Slow to consider innovation or vigorous movement.

Typical of Shani-besieged Mangala-1-Aśvini, hyper-confident launches [Kuja] often hit obstacles.

  • Personally identified with the company's inventions, SPJ aggressively promoted and developed viable products
    • not only those which succeeded brilliantly, but also those which failed to thrive [Ketu-3].

Hyperkinetic Mangala-1 also takes drishti of exciting-exaggerating-annihilating [Rahu-Dhanus] [Mūla] [9].

  • With a classic Mula disregard for consequences, SPJ continued to promote unorthodox [Rahu] challenges to the prevailing beliefs about electro-magnetic computing happening only at a vastly expensive corporate-institutional leve.
  • He painted a shimmering, inspirational illusion [Rahu-Dhanus] of daily, affordable computing on a personal-product scale [Kuja-1 physical body].

During his 56 years of mineralized terrestrial embodiment, SPJ avoided criminal conviction Although he filched from friends and fellow-travelers , SPJ's crimes were relatively petty

  • no graha in either 6 or 6th-from-Chandra.

Likely, SPJ provoked some desire for revenge among those whom he had harmed. A primary misdoing of the businessman was said to have been not sharing credit for creative input

  • exploitive narratives = exacerbated by the self-referential [Surya-Kumbha-11 drishti into creative Simha = 6th-from-Chandra].

The daughter whom SPJ disavowed [6th-from-Chandra = 5] was finally acknowledged. The long trail of nasty disagreements [6] with co-workers was mainly forgiven. Due to relatively little 6th-amsha psychic programming.
