Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Kṛttikā - Pleyades

Agneya - Riksya - Karthika - Alcyone


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 and politically.

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 sonr.

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.

[champion-challenger Hasta-1] [Surya-yuti-Budha-uchcha] master of strategic and tactical planning.

Showing his persistent optimism, emotional comfort with calculated risk [Rahu-ruled Chandra-Svati] his knowledge of military history [Rahu-2] and his superior technical skills in weaponry, strategy, and tactics,

  • DDE is named to Chief executive of Armed Forces orchestrating critical invasions during WW-2,
  • followed by 8-year POTUS term dedicated to planning and execution of the World's Greatest Highway System.

Although the building expense was justified as a national defense military must-have, in practice the interstate roadway gridwork raised USA commercial transport to an unprecedented speed and agility.

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.

Having been raised in poverty, DDE valued money. MDE's father was an entreasured businessman. MDE was raised with luxury assets. A capable investor, MDE was their financial manager.

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.

DDE talked about history for a living.

He was a professor of military history at the Army War College.

DDE spoke knowledgably.

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.

However, this was talking not fighting. Eisenhower himself never fought in wartime combat, except battles of words.
