Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Kṛttikā - Pleyades

Agneya - Riksya - Karthika - Alcyone


For Krittika births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.

Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born gentlemen are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Natural dramatists, Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of Champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius. Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures.

Urisha-pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Shukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatra-pati Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of banking and finance, natural resource conservation, music, wines and perfumes, arts, and beauty. Depending on [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward government positions.

Themes of self-importance, individual entitlement, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Kṛttikā - Pleyades

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

" A proud, dignified, and honorable person

  • - an executive type.

He is very ambitious and eager for power

  • and has the ability to achieve his desires.

He has an innate sense of the importance of his destiny .

He expects everything to come to him as his due

  • and usually gets what he sets out to obtain ."

Firstly as a writer

3rd-from-3rd contains Surya-ruled hyper-political Shukra-yuti-Guru

As vidya-pati-5 located in 11th-from-5th, JQA had the pattern of a successful writer JQA's writing spanned committee reports, letters of correspondence, jurisprudential analysis, speeches, and vitriolic arguments on many topics. .

JQA's writing was prolific [Guru], disciplined [karmesha Shani] , and multi-genre [Mithuna] .

His extensive instructions for principled governance, carefully presented, provided a foundational corpus of legal opinion for the infant nation. JQA's writing began when he served as a scribe for his father's European missions, and ended with his death.

Secondly as a diplomat + transformative agent

  • Surya vargottamsha occupies the diplomatic Mithunaya 7th navamsha
  • Surya activates the emotionally cataclysmic, identity-transforming, suddenly changing, potentially catastrophic 8th-from-Chandra = revolutionary conditions
  • 8th-from-Chandra = 3rd-from-3rd = occupied by political-glamour-expanders Shukra-yuti-Guru

Professionalized [Shani Karmesha] Relationship to father

dutiful Shani + pitrikaraka Surya

= managerial, reporting, touring, process-oriented Surya-Mithuna

Even as a young boy, JQA attended his father John Adams as a diplomatic scribe [3] during the official travels across Europe.

  • As an adult, JQA became a key international diplomat [navamsha-7] arranging alliances via conversation and meetings.
  • JQA drafted countless memoranda of understanding + letters of intent [3]

JQA played crucial roles of international diplomacy essential to the survival of the foundling nation

Most of JQA's colleagues respected that his professional accomplishments were achieved by sustained efforts to impose order upon the political discourse of their chaotic times. JQA's focused mental discipline was known and respected, even by his enemies Surya-yuti-Shani = Mithuna-3

By 1824, the nation that JQA and his parents had worked so hard to build seemed ready to collapse under pressure of vulgar slavery-promoting frontiersmen, led by JQA's arch-enemy POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson .

Proletarian Overwhelm

Although he was able to serve one POTUS term until 1828, there was little he could do to stanch the flow of wild-mannered, violent, and often dehumanizing "born to fight" Ulster-Scots immigrants. They were changing the face of the juvenile nation. JQA returned to a seat in the USA-Congress. A staunch abolitionist, JQA was speaking in Congress when he died [cerebral hemorrhage] .

Old Crank v 2.0]

Less favorably, JQA also perpetuated his father's pattern of conflicted relationships and bitter resentments against rivals. Shani in Bhava-3 is associated with depression. Shani in 8th-from-8th often clings to old resentments, preventing regeneration, and refusing to move forward in life.


Dad = POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams.

  • Dad + son both belonged to the group that has been labeled by some historians as Founding Fathers.
  • Surya-yuti-Shani-3 shows JQ Adams' duplication of his father's identity with governance responsibility [Shani] and politics [Surya] in context of the writing of institutional law documents
  • [Surya in bhava-3] shows JQA's willpower [Surya] to undertake his father's same burden [Shani] of dealing with the production of a corpus of jurisprudential opinion under great time pressure [Shani] in a highly discursive environment [3] .

Surya-yuti-Shani = Administration + Communication + Father + Government

  • [Shani-Mithuna] yuti [Surya-Mithuna] Mithuna = writings, reports, teamwork, meetings, documents, travel itineraries, messaging, publications, commercial business within the context of government

Mom = the estimable POTUS-pair-02 Letters 1744-1818 Abigail Adams

AA is considered to have been one of the foundational Minding Mothers who - despite the limits placed on women during their era - helped to lay the secure basis for the New Republic.

  • [Chandra in classroom-10] rules 4-patriotism
  • Patriotic Parents = social Power-Team
  • AA was a famed writer of literary correspondence on topics of political philosophy and daily life.
  • Her letters kept the fractious Founding Fathers [esp JA and T Jefferson] in steady communication, so that a clear path toward the application of governance principles could be shared by the Leaders
  • [Mangala in bhava-4] shows the invasive action of war. Attacks on their house and farm

Abigail Adams is honored as a Founding Father [Minding Mother] due to her pervasive ideological and discursive influence upon the thought and action of the ruling male cohort [10 rulers] .

[Somana-yuti-Rahu] receives Invigorating, discursive incoming drishti from

  • Kuja-Aśleṣās-4 lagnesha
  • Budha-Aśleṣās-4

Mom = Pragmatic risk-taker, Frugal, Organized, Intrepid Public Figure

Elite Education [Somana-yuti-Rahu] rules 4

  • JQA received a similarly structured formal education to that of his father.
  • JQA completed Harvard College age 20, and began a law practice in Boston.

When JQAs was a young boy, father John Adams began taking his young son abroad on European diplomatic missions representing the newly-established USA. JQA served as assistant and scribe.

  • Dad told JQA to prepare to accept the mantle of national leadership, in order to ensure the impact of their moral principles upon the unsteady new nation.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

[7th-from-Chandra-10] lifepartnership 1-of-1

  • Karkata parenthood, protection, nourishment, routines, cultural familiarity
  • bhava-4 home, caretaking, parenting, security, cultural foundations
  • wed to the mother of his children, Louisa Johnson Adams

Chandra-10 is often a mark of the Two-Person Career

  • 10th-from-7th-from-Chandra [lifepartner] = bhava-1
  • The spouse's professional identity is often inextricably insinuated into one's-own-self
  • Although she could not and did not support his career in the way that his exalted mother had supported his reputable father, indeed Louisa Johnson Adams dedicated herself to her husband's career.
  • JQA's lagnesha [nīcha] Kuja-yuti-Ketu-4 naturally twists his lifepartner's contribution to his career 10th-from-7th-from-Chandra = Karkata

the marriage alliance is challenged by

  • [nīcha] Mangala-yuti-Ketu + [Budha-yuti-Ketu] residing in Karkata-4
  • [Aśleṣa-Budha-yuti-Ketu] ++ [Aśleṣa-Kuja-yuti-Ket] occupy 7th-from-Chandra
  • considerably deepening the themes of disconnection, anxiety [Aśleṣa] and mental disorientation = Budha-yuti-Ketu.
  • in particular, Ketu occupying 7th-from-Chandra predicts a distancing, dismantling, dispersing, apathetic lifepartner

JQA married Louisa Johnson in 1797 in London.

  • Mrs. LJA suffered a range of mental and physical ailments
  • a capable mother who shifted their household internationally, on bad roads, via unreliable shipping, and in miserable weather, many times
  • LJA disliked public roles.
  • The social-mobility handicap that her dislike of public roles created
  • perplexed JQA to the point of despair.

  • JQA held a lifelong series of high-visibility executive and diplomatic roles ++ LJA usually travelled with him [two-person career]
  • yet LJA tended to disconnect.
  • She cared for their children, but her anxieties were debilitating.
  • Nevertheless, Shukra-Singha-5 endows LJA with capacity for musical entertainment. She was a gifted harpist, and widely praised for this delightful asset.

When she was able to travel, JQA's elderly, frail mother Abigail Adams sometimes replaced LJA in social entertaining roles.

  • JQA complained that he had to forego the wifely support which other public men received from their lifepartners.
  • JQA's resentment of these perceived deficiencies only added to the legendary Adams-Family crankiness + complaining.

Despite tensions due to JQA's complaining nature, Louisa's Chandra-Karkata occupies JQA's 7th-from-Chandra = stability of the emotional bond.

  • JQ would have been a rather testy fellow in any case, and Louisa would have needed to develop some strategies for minimizing his impact, such as frail health requiring seclusion.
  • Observers noted that she never neglected her children, and that despite her husband's grousing, Louisa acquitted her social duties by delighting guests with her musical talents.

A difficult marriage nonetheless persists

  • JQA's complaining increased as he aged.
  • Louisa never completely abdicated
  • She always lived with her husband and not separately.
  • She outlived JQA but she did not remarry.

USA North vs. South

After nearly two decades working as Minister to Russia and then USA Secretary of State, JQA was convinced that the conflicts between North-and-South could be resolved diplomatically.

Yet, Budha rogesha = slavery, disagreement

  • [Budha-yuti-Mangala] can be caustic -- in Aśleṣās = can express angry resentment
  • Budha's argumentation = handicapped by the misapprehension and miscommunication = Budha-yuti-Ketu.
  • Bantering Budha is further tasked with ownership of the overworked Surya-yuti-Shani-3 indicating demanding work schedules, intractable ego-bound discussions, a perfectionistic father, and perpetual delays in committee-work


Although his ability, insight, and preparation for elite leadership roles was perhaps the best of any POTUS in history, JQA's core issue remained his inability to compromise .

Historians overflow with praise of JQA's written works, which laid much of the jurisprudential foundation of the New Nation. Yet, JQA was unable to impose a clear legislative solution to the toxically divisive problem of slavery.

No-compromise anti-slavery morality

His southern governance colleagues complained that JQA did not understand the financial realities of the southern region's slave-driven large-plantation economy. Yet, JQA sustained his parents' cherished abolitionist [anti-slavery] principles without yielding to the financial arguments.

  • JQA 's response to those who asserted that slaves were essential to good business was to retort that no reason could EVER justify slavery. His northern moralism angered and alienated many of his southern fellows but he would not change [Shani] this stalwart refusal.

Aśleṣās-Budha-yuti-Mangala in mutual drishti with the governance mastermind Somana-yuti-Rahu-Makara-10

  • An unswerving abolitionist for moral reasons [Chandra, parents] JQA refused to accept the argument that slavery was an essential and irreplaceable component of the American economy.
  • However, the majority of Congress and the USA leadership were Southern planters who vigorously asserted the opposite.
  • JQ was generally more successful in foreign diplomatic roles where moral abominations [Chandra] like slavery were not at issue.

In vulgar domestic political debates, Budha-yuti-Mangala [nīcha], JQA was often verbally attacked.

during the vicious debates on slavery that plagued his career, JQA had

  • moments of violent anger [nīcha] Kuja]
  • moments of logical clarity [Budha]
  • moments of utter apathy [Ketu]

Enlightenment Philosophy

JQA's social doctrine and political philosophy were highly politicized due to Guru-Simha.

  • Like his father before him, JQA wanted the United States of America to be anchored in principles of legal justice,
  • including a concept of inalienable human rights
  • which eradicated the possibility that humans could be legally categorized as property.

[Guru Mahadasha] [age 35.7 until age 51.7] [1804-1820]

JQA generally liked his career during his Guru Mahadasha.

Entitled, bright Guru-Simha with accommodating, diplomatic Shukra-Singha kept him traveling in the gracious salons of Europe = Guru activates 12-distant lands .

  • While living in European capitals, JQA had access to universities [Guru]. \
  • Living in a series of embassy houses, entertaining the era's thought leaders and entrepreneurs of progressive viewpoint
  • He participated in the intellectual-political culture of Enlightenment global humanism.

As soon as Shani Mahadasha began, JQA returned to USA to be POTUS-06. Almost immediately, the visionary inclusivity of Guru was oppressed by the harsh realities of Shanir.

JQA was introduced to his wifeJQA was introduced to his wife Louisa Johnson in London [Guru activates 12 distant lands] where JQA was working as a diplomat [Shukra] on behalf of the baby-nation USA.

  • JQA believed [12, imagination] that Louisa was the daughter of a prosperous London merchant.
  • Louisa's father was supposedly an émigré American living in London whose treasuries [2] + relationships [7] would offer a considerable advantage to JQA's international career.
  • JQA's father John Adams encouraged JQA to marry Louisa with all due haste [hasty Budha-yuti-Ketu] .

Being of marriageable age, Louisa appeared at several parties. Without checking his facts [Guru activates dreamlike 12] JQA asked for her hand in marriage [7] .

  • There was no financial advantage to the alliance. In fact, JQA felt his wife and in-laws to comprise an unfair burden of personal responsibility.

economics and market systems,

Shani drishti to 5-ppolitics, entitlements

When the Adams Family needed to cooperate within the morally lax southern-dominated leadership cohort, they were often mocked as puritanically Northern abolitionists = comically preachy and rigid [Shani] from the Southern perspective.

[Shani in Bhava-3] = Management Administration Committee-work

  • [Shani-Mithuna] 3 = an enduring stream of meetings, administrative details, and literary correspondence [3]
  • [Shani in Bhava-3] = obstructionist Congress [3-congress, parliament, discussion, salon] .

[Shani in Bhava-3 ] manufacturing, factories * North vs. South [again]

In planning for the nation's economic development, JQA promoted the manufacturing systems [3] of New England and the northern states.

  • JQA's writings and public talks appealed to the freeholding northern voting base of manufacturers + small-farmers.
  • However, his abolitionist planning was hated by the southern slave-dependent planters [4] such as POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson.

JQA faced legendary problems with his wife's family

Wife's father = 9th-from-7th-from-Chandra = Meena-12 hallucinations

  • Louisa's father was a financial speculator whose misjudgment put him in chronic danger of severe consequences for unpaid debt.
  • The Johnson in-laws also had various mental and physical illnesses, which JQA had to deal with.
  • Despite JQA's complaining, Louisa remained staunchly loyal [Shani] to her father and her siblings

[Shani Mahadasha] [age 51.7 until age 70.7] [1820 until 1839]

JQA was elected POTUS-06 during Shani-Budha bhukti.

  • He expressed great reluctance and dissatisfaction with this ultimate duty.
  • tainted by the vulgarity of [soon to be] Jacksonian Democracy
  • It seemed less and honor and more a heavily obstructed task [3 task] .
  • JQA often remarked that his earlier European career had been much more intelligent, politically meaningful, and balanced. [Guru + Shukra-Simha]

Shani abolitionism wins [eventually]

Like all things governing by Delay-Master Shri Shani, JQA's unmovable abolitionist stance took a long time to bear political fruit.

  • Yet, in 1865 - forty years after JQA's presidency- a Constitutional Amendment was passed which finally freed the slaves.
  • Eventually JQA's political philosophies and jurisprudence were fully implemented.
  • During the administration of POTUS-16 Emancipation 1809-1865 Abraham Lincoln , human slavery was finally eradicated.

JQA endured a lifetime of polarizing catalysis from his same-age adversary, POTUS-07 Indian Removal 1767-1845 Andrew Jackson

  • JQA's bitter opponent and successor Andrew Jackson was vigorously pro-slavery . Jackson staunchly denied the vile insinuation that the slaves had human rights.
  • Jackson and his parochial supporters made vile accusations against JQA, who was simply appalled at their rudeness and had no defenses against the ruffians.
  • The vulgarity of Jackson's administration [3] was so extreme that many educated observers despaired of decency ever being restored.
  • It was a dark time in American politics.

Shani Mahadasha = heaviest workload + most exhausting duties

Shani is not combust.

The beginning of the Shani mahadasha marked a sustained 19-year bhukti of overwhelming responsibilities.

  • During Shani-Shani svabhukti JQA was elected for a single term of POTUS-06.
  • During Shani-Ketu bhukti, his father died [JQA age 59]
  • in subsequent Shani years, JQA returned to the USA Congress and continued to work against slavery until he died, on the debating floor of Congress, in 1848. Eighteen years later [Rahu cycle] in 1864, Abraham Lincoln would finally abolish American slavery only a few months before his assassination.

Along with distinguished public leaders, JQA's family included some physically and mentally ill + alcohol addiction, and suicides [Guru activates 12] . Challenged family members included

  • the addicted and destructive lapsed-preacher uncle = brother of his mother Abigail Adams
  • the two alcoholic short-lived and near-criminal brothers of JQA
  • JQA's sister suffered from severe marital, health, and financial conflicts
  • JQA's own two alcoholic, suicidal sons.

Two of JQA's sons died before their age 30 due to alcoholism and depression.

  • JQA privately expressed frustration and even contempt toward his wife's [Karkata-4 contains Ketu] invisible ailments and the sickness of his family members.
  • He declared himself unable to aid their distress, as he was too busy with public matters = Chandra-Rahu-10

  • Louisa suffered ongoing and severe anxiety-depressions which often incapacitated her.
