Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

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.

[Vrishabha - 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

DDE was super smart analytically.

Surya-Kanya occupies the invisible, cloistered [12th-from-Chandra].

  • Much of DDE's adult life-work was military [6] as well as invisible to the general public [12th-from].

He also spent much time living in dormitory barracks.


David Jacob Eisenhower [1863-1942] Dad was a mechanical engineer [designing Chitra-Surya-Kanya]

[Surya-yuti-Budha-uchcha] . The father of seven sons, Dad worked as a shopkeeper but bankrupted. He then served as a railroad mechanic and in dairy farm operations Surya-Kanya .

Surya-6 occupies 12th-from-Chandra ++ Surya-Kanya rules slowdown Shani-Simha in 12th-from-Surya.

randhresha [Mangala in bhava-9] suggests a restless, aggressive, or volatile father

  • Mom and dad met and married at their Kansas college. Despite being a college graduate, according to DDE memoires, Dad struggled to maintain steady employment.
  • Dad abandoned the steady lifestyle of family farming [even though his own father asked Dad to stay]. Instead, Dad ran a general store which failed.

As a result, the family lived in poverty until Ike turned 8.

  • All but two of the sons left home immediately after high school, seeking more prosperity [and escape from dad].
  • [DDE also, despite his intellectual prowess and elite military education, struggled to attain career success until his 50's during WW-2]

Dad and the family religion

Guru-Rahu bhukti Rahu occupies 6th-from-9 religion

Both mom and dad were devout members of a biblical apocalyptic cult [since 1895, when Ike was five]

However, his dad and his adult sons left the congregation in 1915 after several doctrinally-required, end-of-the-world predictions failed to materialize [Ike was 25].

After years of supporting their faith-community soberly mapping the countdown to doomsday, only for nothing to occur, logic [Surya-Budha-Kanya] made it impossible for dad-and-sons to continue.

Mrs. Ida Stover Eisenhower [1862-1946]

Ida's childhood was unstable. Her mom died when she was five, [nicha-Guru in 4th-from-Chandra]. Little Ida was housed by a series of relatives.


Her old-style Virginia kin did not support education for women. But, at a time of social change, when one-third of college students in the midwest states were women, Ida got her schooling [Chandra rules 4] by moving 1000 miles west, to Kansas. She finished high school and then entered teachers' college, [4] where she met Ike's dad.

Faith Community

Mom and dad joined the antecedent Jehovah-Witness faith community in 1895. At the time, there was enormous excitement surrounding Armageddon prophecies derived from selective readings of Christian scripture, particularly the two apocalyptic sections of the canonical Bible [Book of Daniel and Revelation of John]. Certain apocryphal texts were also used to support an expectation that the world would end in precisely 1914, accompanied by famines, earthquakes, fires, flood, epidemic disease, et-cetera. The Supreme Deity would then sort all of humanity into one group going to heaven forever, and the other group condemned permanently to burn in hell.

For twenty years, from 1895 until 1915 - DDE age 5 until age 25 -- DDE's family home was an epicenter of prayer, study, and fervent preparation for the Final Judgment.

In 1914, although there was a horrible war in northwest Europe and widespread starvation, the world [consensus reality] mainly proceeded as usual.

Religious leaders of the cult attempted to spin the false prophecies as simple miscalculation. They issued new doomsday dates, and most of the faithful simply adjusted their calendars. However, Dad could not tolerate the gap between faith and logic [Surya-Kanya]. After 20 years of intensive dedication to the doctrine, Dad suddenly, explosively quit the congregation in 1915. [Mangala-9 randhresha]

Mom continued loyally as a respected teacher in the cult, until her decease.

Mom the Stabilizer remained a stalwart supporter of her faith.

  • [Chandra-Arcturus] = mom was adjustable [Tula]
  • And, mom was attuned to a somewhat exotic worldview [Svati ruled by Rahu].

Following an unstable childhood in which she was passed from relative to relative, mom craved feelings of rhythmic continuity, local basis, and emotional stability. [Rahu-Arcturus cravings]

10th-from-Chandra = schoolteacher, homemaker, caretaker, gardener, protector

  • Like many of the brethren, mom sustained her social position [10th-from-Chandra] within her local worship community [4] -- even after the cultic predictions seemed to have empirically failed

Much more importantly than logical proof, the believers valued familiarity, emotional support, rhythmic prayers, sacred singing, communal meals, and shared study

  • Mom stabilized her study-leader position by devoutly re-interpreting the prophecies, allowing the predicted Armageddon events to be re-calendared while her routine lifestyle carried on.

She cherished the apocalyptic doctrine until her decease.

  • DDE was a logical engineer like his father. However, at his sentimental core lived his mother and her worldview.

His Mother's Son

As a Kṛttikā masculine figure, DDE shared his mom's optimism and commitment to peace, even while the material evidence during WW-2 was proving that great evil was afoot.

Like mom, DDE was relatively unconcerned with other peoples' opinions. He made plans and carried on.

MARRIAGE expectations for partnership support

[7th-from-Chandra-7] Lifepartnership-1-of-1

  • bhava-1 integrity of personality, embodiment, physical appearance, kinetic energy
  • Mesha direct action, primacy, invention, pioneering, competition, championship

[Chandra in classroom-7]

  • typically forms a caretaker marriage.
  • The marriage alliance is bonded by emotional need for security,
  • from a modern psychology viewpoint, the couple may experience co-dependency
  • [Chandra-Tula] rules 4, adding capability to MDE's householding and anchoring empowerments

Chandra-7 provided DDE with a singular bond to his mother, which pre-existed and often pre-empted the bond with MDE.

Mom lived until 1946, when DDE turned 56 - also, his Saturn-Return-2 in 5-politics-romance.

  • After mom's death, the year following the end of WW-2, DDE was notified that he would be running for POTUS in 1952.
  • On instruction from his managers, DDE stopped his three-year love romance [Shani-Simbha] [5] and returned to MDE.

both Mamie Doud and DDE have Chandra-7.

  • Their shared foundational relationship orientation is protective caretaking with boundary defense. Their key partners in life are their mothers, and their key bonding function is parenting.

Mamie Doud famously declared her full commitment to promoting her husband [Mesha promotion, pushing forward] by saying,

  • "I have one job and one job only, and that is Dwight Eisenhower."

MDE's statement of identification with her husband was warmly received by DDE's political handlers. The party propagandists strove to cast DDE and MDE as an old-fashioned, monogamous couple with MDE framed as a conventional, at-home, cookie-baking mom.

In fact, DDE and MDE rarely lived together until they moved into the Whitehouse. Both had vigorous external activities. However, they were bonded by pre-verbal Chandra, and buried together with their toddler son.

Religious dogma

  • DDE did not publicly discuss the apocalyptic, evangelical Christian faith [JW] in which he had been raised from age 5-to-25.
  • Nevertheless, his mom Ida - the key relationship in his life - was a committed, proclaiming believer. [Kuja occupies 3-from-Chandra, mom's announcements]

Political ideology = Dhanus

DDE's political ideology was conventional midwest conservative, with emphasis on minimal government and self-sufficiency [Shani-Simha-5].

He joined the Republican party only late in life, when he was asked to run for POTUS-34.

Yet, unlike previous presidents, DDE wanted a stronger dose of religion mixed into the national narrative.

  • DDE urged Congress to add the phrase "under God" into the Pledge of Allegiance, which used to be recited daily by every American schoolchild
  • He was inaugurated to POTUS using a JW-version Bible.

[karako bhavo nashto]

Dad was said to have been humorless, restless [Kuja] and harsh toward his five living sons. All the boys left home ASAP.

Sudden, fierce religious identity-change [Kuja-9 randresha]

Dad and mom joined the JW faith community in 1895, remaining firm adherents for 20 years. Their home became the weekly study center for local believers. The walls of the family dining room were papered with charts and graphs showing the calendar for calculating the end of the world.

Ike's upbringing was defined by his parents' religious convictions and by their high standing in their sangha.

Yet, supremely frustrated by the illogical dilemma posed by a series of failed apocalytic prophecies from their leaders [Mangala randhresha] Dad quit the doctrine totally in 1915.

Each of his sons left the faith shortly after Dad's explosive action [Mangala].

Rising from the unglamorous anonymity of military hierarchy which he inhabited during Shani Mahadasha, the fifty-year-old DDE rather quickly shot to prominence at the onset of WW-2.

DDE was raised inside the Jehovah's Witness cult, with its strict behavioral code of conduct based on the principles of the catechesis.

As a young adult, DDE stepped away from the congregation and its worship practices. However, his mother remained a respected and devoted pillar of the congregation until her death.

DDE died with a net worth of about 10-million USD [2022 value], placing him in the top one-third of capitalization for POTUS


Although Shani takes the long, slow road, He does obtain His goals.

[Shani Mahadasha] [age 31.6 until age 50.6] [1922-1941]

Shani located in 8th-from-10, and Shani in the hostile rashi of Simha, would forecast a dekay in attainment of career objectives.

[age 31-50] Shani Mahadasha was dignified and consistent, with DDE professionally engaged in the USA military hierarchy as a teacher, administrator, planner, bureaucrat. [Shani-Simbha] has an intense aversion to self-righteousness, self-glamorizing, or showing-off. DDE remained humble even when honored ceremonially.

DDE never saw direct combat.

  • He wore the uniform accorded to his rank, and he performed the duties assigned.
  • Even during the peak of WW-2, he was functionally a corporate executive, responsible for top-down policy and planning.
  • He got muddy but not bloody.

Shani, who rules the career, does not like fighting.

He was known for traveling to, and speaking directly with, the on-the-ground troops, most notably those involved in the deadly [2] European Theatre offensives toward the end of WW-02.

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni - Yoni - births of a feminine 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.

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

[Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Shukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games.

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, deal-brokering ability, and glamour in romantic relationships. Queenly and self-referential, they require equity in marriage and business contracts. Honesty is deeply important to them. Yet, due to Shukra's bargaining nature, the insult of disloyalty may be balanced by financial compensation.

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

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

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).

  • It is widely found in nativities of feminine partners of masculine political figures.

MDe [Kumbha Chandra] shows her pre-existing preparation for DDE's campaign for POTUS.

DDE election to POTUS was extraordinary. He had no legal background, he had never before served in political office, nor had he politicked up the military hierarchical ladder. However his WW-2 performance granted DDE a nearly divine countenance, and tax-funded military budgets had swollen to unprecedented levels. An optimistic proven leader with military expertise [same as Truman] was wanted.

  • MDE had been throwing dance parties, connecting with community [Kumbha] and networking for decades in anticipation that DDE would suddenly emerge as a great center of attention in the elected [Simha] executive role.
  • She knew.

Guru randhresha = husband can be the sparkling center of attention [vidya-pati]

yet this same lifepartner can be intensely secretive and non-disclosing

  • Guru located in 7th from Chandra often indicates multiple intimate relationships in the personal life.
  • Randhresha Guru ensures that these hidden partnerships remain hidden.

Except for the final 20 years of their marriage = which two decades overlapped DDE's most severe health issues -- DDE and MDE mainly lived apart. They communicated by letter and telephone.

Ostensibly, their separations were due to his military assignments. However, historians have commented that DDE systematically requested foreign postings unsuitable for family to join, and refused to approve conjugal visits.

  • DDE's marital life was complicated by his Shukra-yuti-Ketu which creates distancing and disorientation with women.

Throughout DDE's career, Mamie's natural ability to hold the center of attention brought favorable reviews from his military colleagues.

  • At the Whitehouse, following the wartime social schedule of the reluctant and rather elitist Mrs. Truman, Mamie's egalitarian Chandra-Kumbha postwar parties were widely praised for their sparkling smiling music, card-games, racial integration, and dancing events.

In the Whitehouse, MDE's large-scale entertainments offered

  • showcase opportunities for USA musical talent
  • physically active, spin-doctor approved, American-branded, good clean fun

after-parties, where political deals could be made [MDE and DDE both comfortable in negotiating roles due to their Chandra-7]

  • On more intimate occasions when a smaller group would be gathered -- to mix socializing with politics and deal-making -- Eisenhower's VPOTUS Richard Nixon played the piano and sang show-tunes.

[Shukra Mahadasha] [age 55.0 until age 75.0] [1951 until 1971]

  • [Shukra-Dhanus] [Shukra-5] karmesha
  • yogakaraka ruler of 4-9 from Chandra-Kumbha
  • rules deal-making, arranging, haggling 7th navamsha [Urisha]
  • occupies the socially participatory, community-networking 11th-from-Chandra

04-Nov-1952 [MDD age 56] DDE wins POTUS-34 election * Shukra-Shukra svabhukti * Shukra karmesha + Shukra activates 9th-from-Chandra

yogakaraka ruler of 4-9 from Chandra-Kumbha

  • Mamie grew up in a musical home [Shukra]
  • her parents enjoyed hosting at-home parties [Shukra-Mūla-5]

Shukra-Mula indicates her unique, oddly frumpy, widely imitated, style of 1950's middle-class fashion.

[disagreements cautiously managed]


[teamworking-managing Viśākha-3] [navamsha Shani-Mithuna]

[Atmakaraka hierarchy, governance, class-consciousness, ranking, status, social order]

[uchcha-Shani-yuti-Budha] = combined rulers of 2 + 6 + 7 + 11

  • [Shani-Tula] overburdened agreements * restricted leverage * mandatory bargaining * strict rules for making agreements * structural compression upon kidney-pancreas * rigidly regulated match-making * must form socially approved partnerships * must honor the lowest-common-denominator in deal-making * mandatory fairness * must normalize social justice * unyielding obligatory diplomacy * must advocate for equity * exchanges must be lawful * must continue conventional negotiations * scarce trading resources * maintainer of old bargains
  • [Shani in Bhava-3] steady time-structured dialogue * heavy responsibility for business * obstructionist younger siblings * disciplined handwork * required writing * must message * obliged to explain * cautious instructions * orderly teamwork * tense interactions * communicative fatigue * chronic sadness * stops spontaneous announcements * mental depression due to old repeating thoughts * may limit the hearing * tight time management * regulated schedules * elders preserve materialistic mentality

  • 7-marriage, alliance, agreements, arrangements
  • [uchcha-Shani-Tula] [3] occupies the elder-respecting, old-faith, strict philosophies, punitive, scarcity-preaching 9th-from-Chandra

Shani provides results of both agreeable yuvati-pati and adversarial, mistreating rogesha

Shani rules both sentimental Chandra and the invisible 12th-from-Chandra containing [Rahu in bhava-6]

Budha-Shani chidra-dasha

during the 1942-1945 marital hiatus, DDE famously did not permit MDE to visit him rogesha . During his WW-2 Allied Supreme Commander years, DDE was based in a secure location in England 12th-from-Chandra.

Although the Army was willing to shield Mamie, and they remained in telephone contact, DDE refused marital visitation. General Eisenhower was said to be enjoying the company of his lady jeep driver and former fashion model, 2nd lieutenant Kay Summersby. [Rahu in bhava-6]

Ketu-Shukra bhukti

when DDE was advised of his impending candidacy for POTUS, MDE and DDE were reunited by his handlers [Shukra].


rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]

[for Simha indriya-lagna]

[Rahu-6 casts passionately adversarial ministering drishti into 10-12-2]

check Shani for defining source of Rahu's social-rank positioning


[calculating-logistical Dhaniṣṭha-2] [navamsha Rahu-Kanya]

  • [Rahu-Makara-Draco] shimmering illusion of dignity * craving for social status * mirage of legitimate authority * mask of hierarchy * over-reaching acts of institutional leadership * fascinating ascent to respected position * unorthodox methods of social ordering * extraordinary claims to statutory jurisdiction * extravagant elitism * thrilling seniority * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of responsible governance * bossy pretense * seeks privilege via regulator-roles
  • [Rahu in bhava-6] tricks the enemies [beneficial placement] * passion for prestige conflicts* in svabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter chatters cleverly in hostile environments *glamorous ministries of service * unusual servants * cunning arguments * thrilling surge of rule-breaking assistance * treats misery with unorthodox medication * astonishing accusations in criminal lawsuits * fascinating outsider insinuates into military-medical-ministry roles * craves the delusion of disagreement * mesmerizing mistreatment of laborers and animals * desires an important role in litigation * exciting injuries * opportunistic warfare * disguised as a victim * marvelous assistance to the disadvantaged * entrancing claims of alleged misdoing * may pose as a poor-sick-harmed patient * may appear as a helpful relative of the mother's people * social mobility sought via appearance of servitude


Rahu occupies the emotionally invisible, sanctuary-seeking [12th-from-Chandra] = emotional affinity for risky, fascinating, overreaching activity in enclosed, private environments


[Rahu in bhava-6] finds its most exciting opportunities in warfare, military, ministries of service, conflict, pollution, grievance.

In Makara, these opportunities occur within governance bureaucracy, regulatory organizations, corporate hierarchies.

... ....

[fantasizing-aspirational Aśleṣā-4] [navamsha Ketu-Meena]

  • [Ketu-Karkata] calmly dissociates from foundational habits * surrenders material security * placidly empty shelters * disregards conventional caretaking * not limited by customary routines * ignores restriction on farming-and-fishing * abandons owned-stewarded property * forgives the ancestors * releases a soothing pink cloud of  ancient rhythms into the misty abyss
  • [Ketu in classroom-12] forsaken by ghosts [beneficial] * eccentric research * limitless imagination * scattered intuitive insights * ambivalent toward foreigners * peculiar paternal grandmother * blurs fantasy boundaries * unstructured meditations * passive isolation * foggy clairsentience * releases invisibility * dissolves privacy * abandons the veil between perceptual worlds * ignores imprisonment * unless other graha in 12, may prefer to live free from father's mother + mother's father


[Ketu in classroom-12] provides primarily the results of ruler Chandra.

Ketu bhukti add the significations of 12 = chidra-karaka functions of apathy + 12 distance, isolation

" 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."
