Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Aśleṣa - Naga

Aśleṣās - Uraga - Azreshasha - Hydra - Aayilyam - Bhujamaghabha


For Aśleṣa births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Uraga, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

[Budha] -ruled Aśleṣās are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators .

Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ethnic narratives and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing [Budha] in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place. Hydra-born are natural environmentalists who prefer conversations about parenthood, ritual worship and holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. Depending upon the condition of parental Chandra, Aśleṣa fathers may bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their sentimental audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, the Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that nourishment can continue and ethnic customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Aśleṣās-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles. They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśleṣa - Naga.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82r.

" Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

[7th-from-Chandra-7] lifepartnership 1-of-2

  • bhava-1 embodiment identity appearance muscularity
  • Karkata = patriotism, home-and-hearth
  • First life partner Martha Skelton was a highly visible person,
  • Generally, Chandra-7 forecasts a devoted marriage partner who is strong identified with the marital alliance
  • Martha was a domestic-decorating home entertainer who supported TJ's career
  • Martha managed their gracious planation home [Chandra] with many slaves in the house and fields [Old Pathways Karkata].

8th-from- [7th-from-Chandra-7] lifepartnership 2-of-2

  • bhava-8 secrecy, non-disclosure, camouflage
  • second lifepartner Sally Hemmings

After Martha died, TJ began an enduring but secret relationship with Martha's half-sister Sally.

  • Martha and Sally had the same slave-owning white father
  • Sally-and-TJ's union produced six children.
  • Life partner-2 Sally Hemmings was almost completely camouflaged behind a veil of social restrictions [Shani] due to her African slave mother.
  • Bhava-8 accepts drishti of oppressive Shani, expansive Guru, and physicalized, controlling [nīcha] Kuja.

Sally and TJ could not marry legally due to miscegenation laws, and Sally served no public roles.

  • Adding insult to injury, TJ could have followed the planter's custom, such as practiced by George Washington , to emancipate his slaves via his Last Will and Testament.
  • He could have freed Sally after his death.

  • Aśleṣa TJ did not -- perhaps emotionally could not -- let Sally go. He did free six specific individuals, who were identified 200 years later as his six children by Sally. She died a slave.


Localism, agrarianism, defending a way-of-life

Staunch defender of a rural, agrarian lifestyle Aśleṣa that he believed to be the only natural foundation for a just society, TJ was a slavery advocate. He understood slaves to be an essential utility of large-scale cash-crop farming [Tobacco] . For TJ, this mixture [Rahu] handily combined the romantic ideal of land-rooted civilization with the enormous marketplace profits [Rahu] of the colonial super-planters.

TJ vigorously opposed the concept of a Federal Bank.

Although a central bank could, as USA-Treasury 1755-1804 Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton proposed, facilitate the growth of commerce in the fledgling nation, TJ said it was incompatible with the simple, decentralized farmers' way-of-life. The fact that the planter-class regularly took loans from each other and from British banks did not dissuade TJ's

Chandra-Śrāvaṇa the listener in bhava-7 suggests expert diplomacy [7] due to emotional [Chandra] attunement to opinions of other asset-holders.

Chandra gains extraordinary strength. for diplomacy and bargained relationships

  • Chandra-Śrāvaṇa ruled by patriotic, ethnic, old-ways Chandra * soothed by careful listening * protectors of undulating shamanic sound * needs customary lawfulness
  • Chandra-7 exchanges mutual drishti with [Yogakaraka] [nīcha-bhanga] Mangala-1

Whitehouse Hostess = POTUS-pair-04 hostess 1768-1849 Dolley Payne Madison

  • As POTUS-05 from 1801 until 1809, Jefferson had substantial career need for gracious social entertainments to reinforce loyalties and repay favors.
  • Sally Hemmings was a hidden, taboo person. Sally's formal attendance at Southern white planter parties would have been outrageous. Dolley Payne Madison , the wife of POTUS-04 James Madison, performed numerous required ceremonial entertaining roles for Jefferson 1801-1809.


D-1 and D-9 * barrier-bending alliances

Martha Skelton Jefferson was a widow when she married TJ. Widowhood was a common situation in the 1700's. It was considered to have mixed [Rahu] benefits. While a widow might bring extra children into the marriage, she might also bring her deceased husband's assets.

The more vivid taboo-bender woman [Shukra] would be Martha's half-sister, Sally Hemmings. Due to her one-quarter African ancestry, Sally was a quadroon. Although she was educated and a member of the household, Sally was still a slave.

TJ's bhava-2 contains both yuvati-pati-7 + randhresha Shani in bhava-2 - Shani-Simha * resistance to royalty, repression of brilliance and hidden qualities to the second life union

rogesha servitude exploitation + Dharmesha-9 global humanism = Guru-Simha * expansion of intelligence, inclusive generosity of political will yet servitude and unbalanced contracts


Recently the old rumors have gained more credibility via genetic testing of the Hemmings lineage and forensic historical research. After 250 years of suppression, there is now more than anecdotal evidence that enslaved Sally Hemmings was Jefferson's long-suffering common law wife.

The half-sister of lifepartner-1, Martha Skelton, Sally Hemmings was 25 years younger than Martha Skelton. Sally was the same age as Jefferson's elder daughter, Martha Jefferson.

Sally accompanied the widowed TJ and his daughter to France during TJ's long diplomatic missions there. It is asserted that Sally and TJ's sexual relationship began in France and continued stateside. Hemmings eventually bore six children from her union with Jefferson.

It was customary for slave-owners to free their household slaves via their final legal Last Will And Testament.

Dying indebted, TJ did not grant freedom to his many slaves, who were expected to be sold in order to pay his debts. However, a single exception to this financial decision was that TJ did grant manumission to six individuals, understood to have been his six children .

Aśleṣa TJ never granted manumission to Sally. Sally died a slave.

TJ's powerful yogakaraka Mangala-1

  • military weaponry
  • political vitality
  • vigorous, vital patriotism
  • new [Kuja] nation's independence,
  • metal implements in his surveying profession
  • frequent journeys by sea

TJ would have needed physical, muscular, sexual, and combative movements to accomplish all that history attests.

Vidyapthi-5+karmesha-10 atmakaraka Kuja

Mangala in bhava-1 produces characteristics of physical courage [1] , political, literary, charismatic, and dramatic energy [5] and dynamic institutional leadership [10] .

Yogakaraka activates 5 + rules-10 Mangala-Karkata -

TJ = a very active man He was a combative agent for change with a philosophical, humanistic orientation. The social identity which marks his life's work is directly adversarial and enormously capable of risk [Rahu in rashi of Kuja] especially involving travel by sea.

Aśleṣa character is often toxic and extortionist in nature. When Aśleṣa-Mangala occupies the lagna, both the extraordinary virtues of yogakaraka Kuja AND the unsavory tendencies of Aśleṣa-the-Squeezer = amplified.

Mixed Outcomes = [nīcha] yogakaraka Mangala-1

Among the political, legal, and financial leadership of his era, Mangala-driven young Jefferson was considered a bit of a loose cannon.

TJ's enthusiasm and vision were welcomed, but his combative personality was often a liability.

POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison noted TJs propensity to tell " large stories" -- especially those which served to promote TJ's self-image as a superman polymath genius.

  • TJ's flaws would seem to reckon about equal to his virtues.

TJ was a hero writer of the extremely innovative and bold USA Constitution. He was a friend to the Euro-American Enlightenment philosophical cohort.

A notable polymath of his era, TJ was spectacularly talented political philosopher, architect, writer, and statesman, inter alia.

Brilliant but Aggressive in his political and sexual behaviors.

TJ was a nasty adversary and incriminating gossiper. He was an exploiter of his slavery-bound second wife. He was a vicious enemy to those he targeted, and his relentless attacks on key members of the Founding Fathers group - specifically, Adams and Hamilton -- may have significantly harmed the fledgling nationr.

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Paul of Tarsus, Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
