Masculine Public-Figure Examples


Aśleṣās - Naga - 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."

Aśleṣa liabilities

What happened to the public career of The Great Engineer?

Hoover is generally ranked among the worst-performing presidents by historians and economists. HH enflamed public outrage over his refusal to protect the citizenry [Ketu-4] from the ravages of the Great Depression.

Those who are old enough to remember -- or have heard elders' stories of the Great Depression -- still tend to disparage his name. The primary complaint = he did not act while there was still time to act. [rigid Shani]

[nīcha-Shukra mahadasha] + [Shani bhukti] apparently paralyzed HH. Shani does not act. Shani resists action.

The second complaint = his refusal to serve.

Despite his widely documented executive abilities, a resentful blaming Hoover declined to accept any firther. governance roles. Although invited to join the regimes of Democrat POTUS-32 or Democrat POTUS-33, he would not serve.

Thus, a highly able leader stubbornly refused to help a nation in need. During HH's nearly 20 years of self-exile, he withheld elite governance participation, at the peak of his mature capabilities.

The third complaint = Hoover became a rogue broadcaster, promoting the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler [a fellow Aśleṣa]

HH interpreted AH to be an effective tool against communism, while he continued while relentlessly attacking [Aśleṣa style] POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt .

It is likely that HH would have suffered a significant personality disorder, stemming from the abandoment terrors associated with the tragic early deaths of his parents.

HH was a busy man,

  • always decision-making [autocratic Surya]
  • always sensing the needs of the common folk [sympathetic Chandra]
  • always talking [announcing Budha].

Surya radiates in Karkata-1caretaking yet constrained by an almost equally strong Shani-Makara-7 = legal limits, governance, bureaucracy.

This same Shani opposes HH Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya = deeply loyal and governing mate.

Surya occupies Karkata-1 ++ [Budha-yuti-Surya] ++ [Surya-yuti-Kuja-nicha] ++ [Surya-yuti-Chandra]. Intense focus [Surya] upon finance and banking [2]

Aslesha-Surya + nicha-Mangala-asta + Budha + Chandra

After HH lost re-election in 1932, he retaliated [Surya-yuti-Kuja-nicha] with a relentless volley of vitriolic attacks upon the policies and character of Franklin D. Roosevelt aand his New Deal safety-net program.

  • Rather than admit the scope of the social problem and suggest workable solutions, HH used his radio broadcasts and publications to criticize and complain.

HH defended [Kuja-nicha] his failed policies [Surya] while aggressively defaming the New Deal domestic anti-poverty aid programs as socialist and communist in motive.

  • Formerly a shining star, The Great Engineer behaved so odiously that he was ostracized from government until Chandra Mahadasha began.

Aslesha-Surya activates nicha-Mangala-asta + Budha + Chandra

Resentment and retribution - HH embraces the enemy

HH was possessed of striking organizational ability [yogakaraka Mangala-1]

  • With his financial expertise and leadership experience, HH could have been an elite leader [10] during the economic recovery deployment and subsequent buildup to WW-2.

Yet due to his vindictive attacks [nicha-Kuja] upon the working FDR administration, HH became instead a man-without-portfolio in in the USA government during 1933-1940.

  • When invited to advise working committees, in a time of need for experienced international leaders --- he refused.

Instead, pride-wounded Surya d driven by vengeant [nīcha-combust] Kuja caused HH to decide [Surya] to travel to Germany independently [Surya]

After socializing with Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler and and his colleagues,

  • HH broadcast forceful radio speeches c c claiming that the Nazi regime and the Stalinist regime should fight it out between themselves.

Shani-7 randhresha occupies 12th-from-8 = no intervention for emergencies

HH's previous Shani-framed anti-intervention argument claimed that during the USA time of crisis and distress, there was no call for the government to assist jobless hungry Americans

As WW-2 built up, HH then argued that USA aid to Europe's in this time of crisis and distress -- including the holocaust atrocities -- was unnecessary and unjustified.

  • HH cast Adolf Hitler as a capable anti-communist who would protect American from the terrifying threat of Communism
  • HH also clained that an expedient USA military alliance with Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin w would open the floodgates, spilling the demonic horrors of anti-democratic communism throughout the world.

Due to his ideological rhetoric, HH was effectively barred from USA public life. Nevertheless, his assets grew significantly during Surya Mahadasha. Surya rules-2.


Dad = farmer Surya-Karkata + blacksmith

Dad died when little HH was six years old. '

Mom died three years later. [Ketu in classroom-4] can signal evaporation of the secure childhood home, with a corresponding passion for realization of governance and regulatory roles in public life.

  • Makara duty, hierarchy, rank-and-position, lawfulness, sobriety

The redoubtable Lou Henry was a steadfast helpmate, herself the head of a large national organization Girl Scouts of America

[Shukra-Kanya] yuti Guru suggests that LHH may have enjoyed additional lady companions, as well may have HH.

However, [Shani-Makara-Draco in Śrāvaṇa-3] in 7th-from-Chandra is exceptionally dignified and ever-attentive to public reputation.

Therefore LHH presented as a disciplined, steady, sober, and mature wife. She would have functioned as one of HH most reliable advisors. Like HH's other peers, LHH would have remained generally conservative in her conduct and her counsel.

Chandra-1 mutual drishti exchange Shani-7

rulers exchange = 1 + 7 + 8

HH would have been a complex, stubborn, but reliable marriage partner due to Shani's impedence upon the graha-cluster near Chandra.

The Soma-complex contains both maraka Surya and intake of maraka Shani drishti. This personalitiy cluster represents inter alia the early emotional wounding of his parent's premature deaths.

Chandra-Karkata = patriotic and parental. Yet, the personal attachment to security and comfort may be constrained by regulating, contract-bound Makara Shani.

Despite the bursting intelligence of the cluster -- including the energized yogakaraka Mangala which made HH The Great Engineer - nevertheless, Shani's overarching concern for the social law and social orderr.

[Rahu-Mesha-10] ruled by nīcha-Kuja

due to nicha-Kuja's personality patterns of vengeance and retribution, the public career was vulnerable to wild swings.

HH had built a career as a project manager, skilled in book-writing, business planning, team-work, meetings, and frequent travels.

Ruler-of-3 and 3rd-from-Chandra and 3rd-from Budha = journalism, reporting, documentation, policy crafting, and technical writings.

HH published more than 30 books.

During the first part of Shukra Mahadasha, HH displayed his management expertise and his command of supply-chain logistics.

He could and did efficiently move billions of tons of food after World War I, tens of thousands of low-wage workers, and countless shipments of mining materials around the world.

However, Budha suffers from association with manipulative nicha-Kuja.

HH's legendary radio attacks on FDR and HH meetings with Hitler prove that Budha is morally neutral and ever at the service of more purposeful grahar.

The Great Engineer was a large-systems thinker, planner, operationalizer [3]

HH was also a dysfunctionally passionate believer in laissez-faire economic theory [Guru theory]. The dysfunction comes from Rahu-Mesha in 6/8 from Guru-Kanya.


Brihaspati-yuti-Shukra occupy 3rd-from-Chandra

HH co-authored more than 30 books with his wife Lou Henry Hoover.

Modern historians suspect that Lou did most of the writing. Nevertheless, HH was almost as well-known for his large volume of publications and radio announcements, as he was for his brief and conflicted POTUS-31 term [Guru in 6th-from-10]

Shukra occupies the adversarial-to-career 6th-from-10

During the earlier years of Shukra Mahadasha, HH was involved in high-profile logistical-charity programs [Shukra-Guru]

HH was the widely admired boss of USA food distribution in post WW-1 Europe.

HH was very busy [3] and seen as rather saintly [Guru rules 9]. Due to his capital investments in international mining operations, HH was also a member of the capitalist elite .

Shukra-Rahu until Shukra-Shani [1924-1929]

due partly to the extreme reticence of a grieving and self-isolating Calvin Coolidge , HH becomes the most visible man in Government [Rahu-10]

He was an iconic, socially admired figure representing the very best of his citizen class: scientifically educated, financially successful, and dedicated to better government through application of tested, innovative processes.

  • Newspaper wags referred to Hoover as Secy of Commerce and Assistant Secy of Everything Else.

Shukra-Shani bhukti = Nov-1928 landslide win election

In a time of flaunting luxury, ostentatious displays of wealth, and notorious lifestyle excess of the rentier class, Hoover was elected on a platform of reducing government waste. The political evangelists proclaimed his proven ability.

Having brought food, clothing, and shelter [Chandra] to starving Western Europeans devastated by World-War-1, and having operated several highly profitable international businesses, Hoover seemed [Rahu-10] able to fix America's ongoing poverty problems.

Hoover had built up a tremendous reputation for successful management of large operations. His POTUS campaign enjoyed a massive landslide win.

Perceived as the very icon of financial stewardship, hands-on management, and moral integrity, Hoover started office in March, 1929.

SShukra-Shani bhukti brings the emergency Great Depression

Less than eight months after he took office in March-1929, Black Tuesday struck.

Poverty and debt hugely escalated Guru-Kanya due to the long-denied greed which had corrupted the financial markets .

Financial markets swung up and down, recovering somewhat in early 1930 only to crash again, with worldwide financial depression evident by the lowest part of the collapse in June 1932 during Shukra-Budha.

Common Folks were overcome with despair

But Shukra-ruled [Ketu in classroom-4] does not care.

The Great Depression had plunged the nation into severe anxiety. Annihilation imagery gripped the masses. Although there was never more than 20-percent unemployment during the crisis, people sensed the terrible specter of starvation and social collapse.

HH responded with radio addresses which blamed the victims for lacking personal initiative and not having adequate courage [3]

Shukra-Budha bhukti brings violent anti-Hoover sentiment

public outrage and POTUS loss

In the eyes of many, HH bore personal responsibility for the spiraling economic crisis of the Great Depression and the colossal scale of misery that it brought.

Yet HH was a passionate believer in laissez-faire economic theory. This doctrine promised that the markets would organically balance themselves. However, nicha-Shukra does not balance.

While many called for aggressive economic interventions, a lethargic HH took sanctuary [Budha bhukti-pati rules 12].

Transient camps called Hoovervilles filled with homeless, destitute, workless, hungry men. Many abandoned their families to starve [Shukra rules Ketu-4 abandonment of the household].

At HH age 56, gochara Rahu had returned to Mesha-10. Everyone expected the chief executive to ACT, and act decisively.

HHowever, gochara Shani-Makara moved into His 7-homebase Apr-1931.

HH was accused of negligence [nīcha-Shukra]. Yet HH did nothing.

The Great Engineer and his laissez-faire economic theory became an object of public contempt [6 from 10] and he lost re-election to FDRr.

  • The stock market crash of 1929 and the sudden impoverishment of millions of Americans happened under Hoover's watch.
  • Curiously, his own financial standing was not afflicted by the Great Depression.

Hoover made his fortune outside the US where he was a unique and fascinating figure. Likely he was more familiar with the " ex-pat" artificially glamorized " trickster" version of the American ex-pat engineer and explorer [Kuja].

His own people rather bewildered him. [Ketu-4]

Hoover demonstrated dramatic and much-praised success for his "can-do" [Rahu-Mesha doing, doer] innovative and dynamic approach to feeding the war victims. His method was not transparent. He would not discuss what would be done but he was willing to explain what had been done [Shani].


Considered a political pariahah after his mishandling of the Great Depression, HH was abandoned by all but a few ideological devotees

HH had minimal subscribers during his Chandra Mahadasha 1941-1941 [age 66-76] .

However, his anti-Stalinism crusade was better supported during his Mangala Mahadasha age 76-83.

By the onset of Rahu Mahadasha in 1958 [his mid-eighties] anti-communist rhetoric had become a standard narrative of American electoral politics.

Toward the end of his life, HH's public image as a defender of the American Way of Life was somewhat rehabilitated with support from aging Republican leaders like Dwight D. Eisenhower

HH's parents died during his childhood - dad when HH was 6, and mom when HH was 9.

HH wandered through the homes of various relatives, but never stayed in one family for long.

As an adult, HH was a peripatetic figure.

Historians generally judge HH to have failed miserably in his responsibility to protectct the common people, whose lives were crushed by the sudden economic collapse of 1929.

Despite the previous show of charity and compassion for European war victims, HH essentially ignored the suffering of American commoners.

HH asserted that Americans needed to call upon their own inner resources without relying on the governmentt

HH blamed the victim by insinuating that Americans were weak and complaining. [Ketu-Tula] ruled by Shukra-Kanya


" Usually cast as a President defined by his failure to contain The Great Depression, Hoover's story is far more complex and more interesting.

To begin with, Hoover was an activist reformer, albeit one without the political skills needed to sell himself and his programs to Congress and the public.

A shy man, he insisted on keeping much of his life and good deeds out of the public eye. Only in politics is this a character flaw.

Yet, it prevented those around Hoover from portraying him as a compassionate leader, or warding off portrayals of him as a cold, uncaring figure responsible for nearly everything that was going wrong in the American economy.

As a result, Hoover's presidency remains largely an untold story.

It began when Calvin Coolidge chose not to run for a second term in 1928. Hoover, then secretary of commerce -- and joked Washington wags, "assistant secretary of everything else" -- made no secret of his interest in succeeding Coolidge.

Few men seemed so prepared for the nation's highest office.

After all, he had fed Belgium, run the U.S. Food Administration for Woodrow Wilson, revolutionized the Department of Commerce, and ministered to victims of the Mississippi River flood.

More realistic than Woodrow Wilson, more respectable than Warren Harding, more imaginative than Calvin Coolidge, Hoover appeared an ideal candidate.

Few Americans asked whether the Great Engineer had a political temperament."

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 husband.

For those born into the Brihaspati-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..

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

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

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

Brihaspati-yuti-Shukra nichha is also problematic for relationships with women. Yet Guru-Shukra are holding excellent positions in navamsha-4 Meena suggesting that life-partner-1 is a person of artistic and spiritual character who may be deeply forgiving of the masculine nativity's additional interests.

Herbert Hoover was a devout Quaker in private practice and a vigorous exponent of Quaker principles in public life. Hoover worked most days of his life from morning until night. His primary expression of Quaker belief was the sober lifestyle which undergirded his extraordinary work ethic.

  • during the USA Great Depression, Shani-9 caused his downfall in the USA presidency. Rigid refusal to change his doctrinaire free-market ideology [Shani-Urisha = cintamani * mani * money -policies] forced him into the role of the dogmatic preacher. while economic collapse deepened and desperate poverty spread throughout the nation on an unprecedented scale, Hoover continued to preach the message of saving and self-reliance. Loud calls for government safety-net assistance to the growing underclass were ignored; hobo camps called Hoovervilles showed the contempt Americans felt for their uncaring president.

  • Hoover was wiped out by the landslide victory of POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt . True to FDR's Shani-8, FDR immediately passed emergency laws Shani-8 using pooled funds [8, tax monies] to structure government work programs [Shani] for millions.

Hoover was a prolific author of engineering books, and considered a high academic authority in that emerging scientific field.

  • Speaking was hard for Hoover, and being before a crowd was an ordeal.
  • He seemed stiff and monotonous before big crowds, and he was shy with strangers.


  • Exceptionally wealthy via speculative investments in minerals + mining, specialist in famine avoidance and food distribution challenges.

  • Traveled constantly and extensively.

  • Mines and metallurgy; food and farming; government efficiency and volunteer organizations; Quaker morality [nīcha] Shukra, quietude] .

Hoover was a brilliant man, a renowned author, and a highly accomplished business entrepreneur. Nevertheless, he completely lost the public confidence . His economic policies -- based on elaborate principled arguments for the corrective effects of free markets -- did not adapt to the new fact that the economy did not self-correct during the Great Depression.

  • Would not join Stanford fraternities nor allow his sons to join any.
  • A great deal of ocean travel.
  • Extremely good at mining ventures , finding great supplies of mineral resource -- everything from gold and precious stones to coal and oil.
  • Ruler of the [10th navamsha] = very strong Budha in bhava-11 systems
  • vriddhi-pati ruler 11th from lagna = social-material relationship = Guru. Guru-yuti-Shukra = very close, expansive, abundant [but both men would have had polarizing catalysis with women due to the [nīcha] Shukra.]

Became a very financially privileged man, starting with the barter = move out of the Chinese coal company rights for move into a partnership in the London co.

By 1914, Hoover, operating on his own since 1907, had important investments on every continent and offices in San Francisco, London, Saint Petersburg, and Mandalay. Once he remarked that if a man "has not made a million dollars by the time he is forty he is not worth much."

Hoover was worth about $4 million at the beginning of World War I. Under both POTUS-29 Teapot Dome 1865-1923 Warren G. Harding and POTUS-30 Price of Freedom 1872-1933 Calvin Coolidge , Herbert Hoover became the most visible man in government.

public negative perception during his presidency: unsmiling square face and starched collars; general apathy and lack of connection toward the very poor, exploited classes, suffering

  • Ambivalence, apathy [Ketu-2] toward medicine, war, conflict, poverty crime [Hoovervilles] scattered attention to the very poor and exploited
  • Ambition [Rahu-12] to be recognized as an important figure in distant lands or a master of clandestine operations [cooperative of USA intelligence agencies]
