Masculine Nativities

Viśākha - Radha

Indra-agni * Aindra-agna *Zkragni * Satragni * Sadvhava * Vaikaasi * Vaigasi * Visagaam


For Viśākha births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting.r.

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Viśākha nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Growth Shocks

[Tula - Vanika] pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Shukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles [Shukra] which engage overview, ideology, theory, first principles, or interpretive paradigm [Guru] . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.

Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Shukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Tula-Viśākha the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick [due to Guru activates 3-6] .

Vṛścika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs . Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Viśākha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Viśākha - Rādhā

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97r.

" ... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."


Younger officer Grant, probably after Mexican-American War, late 1840's

The USA Civil War is considered by many historians to have been the most inhumane, vicious, miserable war of all time.

The degree of brutality is measured not only by the vast numbers of those who died in battle, brother against brother, although that horror was ghastly enough.

Rather, the massive suffering and excruciatingly painful deaths from infected wounds, dysentery, cholera, starvation, and the hideously squalid conditions under which prisoners of war were kept are considered a horror beyond belief.

Who else could have undertaken leadership, knowing that the only possible winning strategy would be to simply out-kill the enemy?

Julia Dent Grant was a stabilizing stalwart in the volatile life of the military officer USG.

Her specialty was establishment of a stable homelife wherever the family needed to travel in order to follow USG's military assignments. She raised their four children while USG was sometimes at home but mainly on duty. Julia provided the routines of normalcy that allowed his career to flourish.

Her support was often corrective [Shani]. Julia was known to travel by stagecoach to his military battlefield camp. She set up housekeeping inside his officer's tent in order to prevent his alcoholic drinking binges. [USG [uchcha] Shukra-6]

Succeeding several incompetent military predecessors, Grant was charged with arranging a cruel fight to the death between two nearly equal but adversarial bands of brothers [Northern and Southern forces] .

Neither side was willing to compromise [Surya in bhava-7] -[uchcha] 7 Pride.

A deeply embedded split on the understanding of humanness [whether slaves were fully human or not] and the sanctity of the Union had gone into stalemate.

It became clear that the winner would need to simply out-kill the loser.

Grant gave the order to kill, kill, kill

take no prisoners and let the wounded die.

It worked.

Faced with staggering loss of life, a catastrophic scale of injury, and no possibility of reinforcements, the South capitulated.

The Union's claim that slaves had human rights and the Union was sacred were bitterly upheld in the court of mass death and horror.

Budha activates

  • 9-theory, higher understanding, principles, paradigm of belief
  • 12-imagination, contemplation, private spiritual guidance

nichha Budha may be a fuzzy thinker. Reputed for flights of fancy along with visionary planning at the conceptual level . Budha's broad thinking [often lacking logical details] then combines with Shukra's randhresha capacity for catastrophic transformation [8] and this cluster of traits becomes key to his identity [lagnesha]

After many missteps in career, seven years of poverty, and an ongoing battle with the bottle, USG found his fortune in apocalyptic conditions of war, race-conflict, exploitation, and disease [6] .

Shukra strives for justice, in illogical ways.

Shukra is a mediator, Budha is an advocate. As POTUS-20, Grant was deeply involved in USA Reconstruction efforts. USG was instrumental in attempted remediation of the Native American conflicts.

Both types of race-and-culture conflicts were severely toxic for all involved. Shukra-6 self-medicates, and Budha-Meena-6 then articulates its vision when it is sufficiently lubricated with liquor.

General Grant was a capable writer. [Vimala Yoga] last-minute rescue.

After the presidency, USG and Julia enjoyed world travel. They were feasted and gifted by royalty and heads of State, returning to the USA as a wealthy couple looking forward to a grand retirement, supplemented by USG's speaking fees.

USG invested their gift-monies and borrowed more. Sadly, their banked wealth was destroyed in a single day via a collapsed Ponzi Scheme. Budha-Meena-6 crimes of financial accounting.

Terrified of leaving Julia a bereft widow, USG teamed with Samuel Clemens [Mark Twain] to publish a best-selling multi-volume war history, Personal Memoirs . Diagnosed with throat cancer [lifelong smoker, addictive Shukra throat] and knowing that he would never earn speaking fees, USG wrote several pages each day and the brilliant litterateur Clemens edited everything.

The memoire was a sweeping financial success, and Julia's widowhood was comfortable.

  • eventually, USG became a successful published author. His writing quality was boosted by his friendship with his editor [3] the estimable Mark Twain.

USG and partners [often his fellow soldiers, 3 fellows] were chronic entrepreneurs. They started many different kinds of businesses, as was common in the day.

Yet each enterprise failed for different reasons. USG was involved in agriculture, ice-delivery, animal meats, retail leather-goods, real-estate, and a billiards club, to name a fewr.

Sweets-seeking Shukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions [Typically, alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also]

Grant suffered severe, lifetime alcoholism. Early in his officer career, he was discharged from the U.S. Army due to his drinking; later, he lost his plantation business for the same reason [Skukra-[uchcha] 6] . His serious drinking problem arose in his early twenties and persisted through his adult life, placing him in precarious situations both physically and socially. Yet, his long-suffering wife remained faithfully at his side enduring the havoc of his addiction and believing that her husband's day would come [dikbala] of Shani-7 a loyal wife.


Lagnesha Shukra-6 military brought USG himself into a military career. Shukra also indicates Julia, who had grown up in the military culture due to her father being a mid-ranking career officer.

USG met Julia Dent in a military camp, where he and other West Point graduates were stationed. Julia's brother introduced her to USG. Her brother and USG had been roommates at West Point Academy. [Shukra-yuti-Budha] brotherr.

[Shani nīcha-bhanga] activates bhava-4

Dad was a leather tanner. USG grew up with the smell of blood-slaughter and the sound of terrified bellowing from animals being destroyed. His family home shared a wall with his father's hideous slaughterhouse, where cattle were brutally killed and skinned [nīcha] Shani] . Shaped his upbringing, Viśākha 's tolerance for bloody slaughter was well developed by the time he reached adulthood.

USG was a military officer by training, having graduated from West Point Academy in 1843 during Budha-Shani bhukti * Shani bandesha-4 educational diploma. He was quoted as saying how much he disliked WestPoint on numerous occasions, which dislike is represented by his yogakaraka nichha bandesha-4 Shani-7.

No matter the intensity of his personal resistance [Shani] young Grant's military education was of elite quality and he regularly called upon his knowledge when making important decisions that affected large numbers of those in his command. Yogakaraka Shani if reasonably well placed usually provides Thula radical nativities with a solid schooling experience.

[Shani nīcha-bhanga] + [dikbala] + An Awful Yoga with Awesome Power [nīcha] Shani-yuti-Surya [uchcha]

Grant's moment of glory [Surya] came --- when Grant was broke and distrusted --- amid the horror and hatred of the USA Civil War in which 650,000 soldiers died. The war was dragging on interminably with ever-more-ghastly suffering on both sides. Winning became a matter of survival, and survival became a matter of headcount. The question was which side would get killed off first.

Grant's extraordinary combination of tolerance for cruelty [nīcha] Shani]

A sustaining addiction [uttama lagnesha Shukra-6] made him and outcast and a loser in most life situations

, tactical military skill, and stalwart wife . But nearing the end of the Most Terrible War, this awful yoga gave him the "magic touch" which allowed the North to win the war .

His frightening package = military skill [Surya] + dogged acceptance of gross injustice on a national scale [Shani] + an addiction which numbed the pain enough to survive the daily horrors [Shukra] + computational skill in war tactics but not overall strategy [Budha]r.

no limits [Ketu] on bloodshed, death [via maraka Kuja] in military or survival settings, superb military leadership in unthinkably gory circumstances

As a military general, Grant accepted the hideous reality of large-scale carnage.

  • He accepted that the survival of the Union required killing off a large portion of the next generation of American adult males.
  • Most of these men died not immediately by the sword, but in the days afterward in wrenching pain, from septic infection of wounds untreatable in the squalid conditions of the military camps.

Under USG's command, the Northern Army won an unwinnable war . Historians opine that a primary reason for winning the unwinnable was that USG was willing to enter battles where the enemy [6] had a nearly equal advantage [Tula] in the field, knowing that the sole tactic had to be fight to death.

USG knew that his tactic would lead thousands of trusting young men into animal slaughter. He drank to contain the evil. His wife Julia managed his self-annihilating alcoholism, ensuring that Grant survived long enough to win the war.

After completing his presidency USG was financially insolvent and suffering from throat cancer after a lifetime of smoking cigars.

  • Grant hired the renowned literary writer Mark Twain [Samuel Clemens] to write Grant's memoires.
  • The Memoires were a huge literary and commercial success, selling 300,000 copies in an era when books were an expensive luxury and many citizens could not read.

Immediately after completing his extensive and critically praised memoires, Grant left his terrestrial body via throat cancer at the age of 63






[uchcha] Shukra in bhava-6 is often an indicator of enjoyable moral corruption, alcoholism and consorting with servants or underlings. General Grant was a practicing alcoholic known for binge drinking throughout his career.

His own parents were moralistic Methodist tea-total practitioners [absolutely no alcohol] who were said to have taken offense at Grant's immoralism

They rejected his alcoholism and his tolerance [Shukra] for slavery [6] .

Grant's father Jesse Root Grant was a committed foe of alcohol use, due in part to the fact that Jesse's own father had been a severe alcoholic who abandoned his own children to the streets in his disability.

The father's father can be seen via 9th-from-pitristhana = indriya lagna [bodily baseline] . Shukra's polarizing catalysis appears to have afflicted both General Grant and his paternal grandfather with equal impact.

Hiram Ulysses Grant's wife Julia Dent [Shukra] hailed from a wealthy slave-owning plantation family from Missouri. In fact, although Grant was married to Julia in the state of Missouri which was less than one day's wagon ride from Grant's parent's current home in Illinois, Ulysses Grant's parents refused to attend his wedding.

Although he held the office of POTUS-18 for eight years, Grant's mother never once visited the White House. Mom declined many invitations from President Grant and his socially popular wife Julia Dent Grant. Mother was presumably unable to associate herself with her intemperate son, whether he had the honorable POTUS rank, or not.

Grant had a lifelong fascination with politics due to svakshetra Kumbha Rahu-5. When working in his father's leather shop in Galena Illinois, Grant surprised the townspeople with his ability to predict the various twists and turns of the Civil War. According to journalists of the day, Grant enjoyed an uncanny understanding of the political motivations of the various military generals and their relationship to the US president and Congress.

After the horrible destruction and brutality of the USA Civil War, Grant enjoyed extremely high public visibility due to the auspicious PushyamiChandra in 10.

Being a Northern war hero remembered for his ability to put an end to the conflict no matter the hideous costs of life and property. Grant won re-election quite easily.

Yet due to Shukra + ruler-of-12 Budha, Grant's tenure in the office of president was plagued by constant financial shaming-scandals. He seemed to be naturally attracted to the company of well-heeled criminals [pleasant, attractive Shukra in the criminal 6th] .

While the double viparita raja yoga of randhresha-8 Shukra in 6 + ruler-of-12 Budha in 6 did personally protect him from incrimination, Grant was sickened by toxins and he was swindled badly on more than one occasion.

Sacrificial Kuja-yuti-Ketu, with that fearless militarized yoga also rising in navamsha, allowed him to sacrifice the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers on the expectation that, because the North had more bodies available to sacrifice, he could simply wait until nearly all the enemy were dead and the North albeit after horrendous losses would be the winner. It was an extremely cruel strategy but typically of Ketu via detachment and having no other option, indeed it worked.

However, the Ketu+Kuja pair in bhava-11 friendships did deprive Grant of friends both before and after the wars in which he fought. His camaraderie with fellow soldiers was circumstantial. He did not maintain voluntary associations once the work was completed, preferring the company of his wife and siblings when he sought any company at all. GrantJulia_sm.jpeg

Wife Julia Dent, by contrast, had excellent social skills and a large network of friends from their various military postings and family connections. Shukra + dharmesha-9 Budha.

On the plus side, Grant enjoyed the life structure of unswerving loyalty to his wife due to ]dikbala] of the [nīcha-bhanga] [yogakaraka] Shani, and Julia whatever her faults followed him steadily from military camp to military camp throughout their lifelong marriage.

For a masculine Tula-born, Shukra lagnesha = the presence of the wife is essential to bring balance and harmony into daily life. Thus when Julia was away caring for their children or staying out of the fiercest battles, Grant was said to have lost his sense of balance and wallowed in the drink. When she returned to his side, he recovered his better judgment.

Feminine Public-Figure Examples


Purnavasi - Vutvrta - Jamitra


For Saptarishi births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential..

Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge..

High forehead. Punarvasu have a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Instructing, Explaining, Describing

[Mithuna - Dvamdva] pada 1-2-3 represent Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10-leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive human wisdom for evocative writing or speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.

[Karkata - Kadaga] -pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophy. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Guru versus local, motherly Chandra. Often these remarkable women are found in the gardening and domestic realms. Natural herbal physicians, they understand and can elicit the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding.

Although the priestly husband seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the husband may also be adversarial, polluted, impoverished, or ailing (due to Guru activates 6).

Themes of restoration of lost knowledge , gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu - Aditya

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 93

  • and insists on beautiful and harmonious surroundings for herself and family.

Her health is good
