Masculine Public-Figure Examples
Aryaman * Bhaga - Falgun - Utthram
For Uttaraphalguni 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 Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, 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.
Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed. [Can be counterbalanced by a cool moon.]
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.
[Simha - Leya] pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatra-pati Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romantic idealism, creativity, and entitlement.
Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician of international ability, according to the strengths of nakshatra-pati Surya.
Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.
Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.  . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83
" A proud and arrogant disposition,
Uttara natives are extremely intelligent
but because of their inordinate pride ,
and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."
USA Civil War Brigadier General James Garfield [age 34] c. 1865. Library of Congress.

Mother's divorce = 6th-from-Chandra
Garfield's mother, to whom he was deeply attached, remarried to support her five children . However, Garfield notoriously disliked the man. During an era when divorce caused socially punitive shaming-scandal, unfairly demonizing the woman, he nevertheless supported his mother unconditionally. During her divorce, JAG claimed that his step-father was abhorrent and abusive.
Later, his own marriage was headed toward divorce, endangering his political career. Pundits opined that had he survived the assassination, Garfield would have suffered political ignominy due to his romantic multiplicities and impending divorce from his unhappy wife.

JAG and his four siblings were raised in poverty by a single manually-laboring mother in the culturally isolated rural region then known as Ohio's Western Reserve. He was on track to become just another hard-working laborer when he received a series of remarkable educational opportunities via Rahu the Opportunist. Garfield's career began to escalate at the beginning of Rahu Mahadasha, and throughout his decades in public office, he supported the concept of government-funded education for all citizens and their families regardless of race or creed [Rahu the Mixer] .
Received a remarkably strong liberal education considering the weak foundation of his upbringing. His New England college acculturation made JAG a passionate abolitionist who believed that the Civil War was a religious crusade against the evils of slavery.
