Masculine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni


For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companions.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music , may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatrical values of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

[Sweetly Suave Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics , romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Shukra-governed births, bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Shukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION Pūrvaphalgunī

from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

" A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports

  • reveling in the joy of mere action,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Buchanan's mother and father both hailed from immigrant Ulster Scots roots.

the father of POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty 1791-1868 James Buchanan was a vendor of European luxury goods. Like most men of his era, dad also owned a working farm, but he likely outsourced its operation while he engaged in business.

Dad = a merchant-farmer born in Northern Ireland who settled in Pennsylvania. Dad eventually achieved economic success via mercantile trade and real-estate investments. Surya in bhava-9 [karako bhavo nashto] usually suggests a somewhat overbearing or preachy father, exaggerated by mega-confident Surya-Mesha [uchcha] .

Among other advantages, dad ensured that JB obtained a baccalaureate diploma . Surya-yuti-Kuja shows dad's involvement with JB's education = Kuja activates 4-schooling.

The record indicates that JB was nearly expelled from Dickinson College for inappropriate behavior. Yet dad arranged a reinstatement, and an 18-year-old JB received a diploma in 1809. [Surya-yuti-Budha] dad involved with JB's diploma = Budha.

[This diploma would be comparable to a modern high-school or associate's degree. Afterward JB began to read law, earning a law license in 1812, age 21.]

  • Buchanan's reputation among his Pennsylvania constituency steadily eroded while it became obvious that he was trading * pro-slavery votes for direct financial support from the Southern planter class.

Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman JB really liked attending nice parties.

  • While socializing in the national interest, buchanan's rather luxurious personal lifestyle was being secretly subsidized by rich southern slave-plantation owners
  • 10th-from-Chandra = Guru expanding assets
  • Unfortunately, after decades of enjoying the plush company of the monied growers Shukra-10-Vrishabha, JB was deeply in the pockets of the slave-owners.
  • Despite being himself a Pennsylvania northerner, and despite his clear electoral mandate from northern voters to severely limit or stop slavery in the nation, he continued to defend the planters' claims that slavery was constitutionally protected.

Political vacillating and dithering.

Ketu-9 yuti the rulers of 1 + 2 + 4 + 9 + 11

POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty 1791-1868 James Buchanan is often ranked by historians as the worst [or one of the worst] USA presidents in history. From his early 20's [political career began age 23] until his early 40's, buchanan was a vigorously active attorney. By the onset of Shani Mahadasha his age 61, JB had not practiced law in decades. He had lived outside the USA as a diplomat during antebellum decade and knew little about the social and economic violence of slavery. JB's arrogance [non-questioning] trivialized the massive moral offense of slavery as "a small matter" of Constitutional Law.

Since the beginning of his political ascendance age 23, buchanan had been elected and re-elected by northerners seeking moral leadership. Yet, because he was beholden to the financially privileged slave-owning planters who funded his lifestyle, and also because he preferred a romanticized view of the agrarian-roots Deep South [where he did not live and about which he knew little] Buchanan was unable to decide.

As POTUS-15, he blustered and dithered.

Instead of addressing the monumental moral questions, buchanan spent four years pretending that there was no serious problem. As moral outrage reached the boiling point, JB ignored the moral arguments, taking instead a legalist stance. JB claimed that while it was illegal for the southern states to secede from the union, it was equally illegal for the Union government to force reunification.

Scholars see Buchanan's tenure as the nadir of national leadership which could not have come at a worse time.

Meanwhile JB Simha- Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman enjoyed holding court at Washington D.C. salon-parties. He retired in a climate of non-accountability [Ketu] claiming that he was not responsible for the problems he left behind. As the Civil War began to rage, retired POTUS-15 James Buchanan wrote a self-justifying book defending his presidential actions and blaming the slavery problem on impatient abolitionists.

The book was ignored. The terrible war had started.
