Masculine Nativity


Yoni - Bhagadaivata - Prakphalguni - Arjuni


For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine 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.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companions.

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 gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics , romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

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

Themes of political 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] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

" A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports

  • reveling in the joy of mere action,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

FATHER ++ StepFather

Dad-1 = Surya + 9

Bio-dad was a wool-trader from Omaha, Nebraska and son of a prosperous banker.

[Mangala in bhava-9] located in 6th-from-Chandra-nicha suggests the sad truth explained in GRF's memoires, that his aggressively dominating [Kuja] dad was emotionally dysfunctional [6th-from-Chandra] -nicha].

GRF was born as Lesley Lynch King. Following his abuse of GRF's 20-yo mom, the bio-dad played no role in son GRF's life, although GRF's paternal grandfather [Chandra-4] did pay child-support until GRF was 16.

GRF had one, unannounced meeting with the bio-dad who suddenly turned up at GRF's high-school restaurant job, impulsively [Mangala] attempting to bond with a son he'd never known. Dad could retrospectively qualify as NPD lacking impulse control.

Dad-2 = 8th-from-pitristhana ++ 8th-from-Surya

Gerald Rudolff Ford [9-Dec-1890 – 26-Jan-1962]

The stepfather [Vṛścika-Chandra-4 + Makara-6] owned a paint-and-varnish company. Ford. Sr. had three more sons with GRF's mom. Ford Sr. provided a stable home, education, and moral guidance until GRF reached adulthood. At age 22, Lesley Lynch King officially changed his name to Gerald Rudolph Ford in honor of dad-2.

Because he was flexible and available and known for seeing both sides [Surya in dualized Mithunaya] GRF was called upon to fill many short-term [Mithuna] roles that required teamwork and detailed documentation.

  • Despite video and still-photo which showed bullets arriving from several different angles, the Warren Commission concluded that a distressed /lone-gunman/ was the only person involved.
  • Despite strict police security, the shooter himself was quickly killed by a Dallas man.
  • The /lone-gunman/ conclusion seemed suspicious, and GRF was implicated in the collusion.
