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, naatural 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

NOTES on the commonly cited Time of Birth for Napoleon Bonaparte states

" Name Bonaparte, naapoleon I Gender: M Birth name Bonaparte, Louis Napoleon born on 15 August 1769 at 11:30 [= 11:30 AM Place Ajaccio, corsica, 41n46, 8e48 time zone LMT m8e48 Data source From memory Rodden Rating A. " See the detailed discussion at

BPL COMMENTARY WRT Napoleon-1, time of birth

The oft-cited birth time of 1100 or 1130 = not from a recorded memory of an observer of the birth. It derives from the anecdote that Napoleon's mother entered the labor of childbirth in Corsica, when she was sitting in church for the purpose of hearing Holy Mass. The service was presumably being offered at the hour approaching the Angelus [noon] .

The anecdotal [likely honorific] time and even the date of Napoleon's birth are questioned. One scholar has asserted that 15-Aug-1769 is actually the birth date of Napoleon's younger brother and that the France-Emperor [reign 1804-1815] was actually born on 07-Jan-1768 at an unknown time. Napoleon's parentage is also questioned.

[Chandra in classroom-9] usually means that the mother is a class-conscious, naormalizing, devotional figure. Pious, morally guiding Mom may be the main Muse in one's lifetime.

[Shani-yuti-Budha] drishti into Chandra

Mom she was married at age thirteen, and gave birth to thirteen babies, of which eight survived. NB was the fourth of thirteen children born to his Letizia Ramolino.

Mother was uneducated and said to be harsh. Still, she possessed of some funds via her husband's salary for managing a military-garrison and a prison.


Tough, order-imposing mother forms NB's emotional expectations of life

Known as a tough disciplinarian [Shani], Letizia was reputed to be a strict household manager with an earthy style [Shani] .

By all accounts, she was a stern mother who was willing to whip her children for purpose of maintaining order in the household [or have them punished by servants] .

Despite her infamous cruelty, Letizia was not murdered. The household ran smoothly.


Her strictness included the requirement that her children should be bathed every other day. This conflicted with the centuries-old European fear of bathing as the guaranteed way to die of cold-fever. European mothers rarely bathed their children. In those days, most adults also resisted the water-bath. The local folk [Chandra] balked at her habit but she persisted. [Shani persistence.]

  • From mom, naB likely received his legendary persistence, disregard of contradictory opinions, and cruelty toward his loved ones.
Big spirit finally squeezes into compressed human body

Napoleon was his mother's fourth child. Her first child, ason named Napo-leone [new lion] was born and died in 1865. The famous empire-builder Napoleon born in 1869 was named after his deceased brother.

Psychically, this is probably a case of the same spirit dying, reorganizing, and returning to School-of-Earth for a second, more successful materialization.

NB was forced to disavow lifepartner, the courtier Josephine, due to her inability to produce the legally required biological male heir.

In order to meet the French government requirement that he produce a bio-male heir with royal ancestry, naB and Marie-Louise Hapsburg joined a marriage contract. The alliance was purposeful and each party followed the rules [Shani] to obtain the agreed aim. Guru-2 heritage bloodlines casts fertile drishti into Kumbha-10 = 2nd-from-Chandra. A son was produced. However, naB died a few years later and the son also died prematurely without issue. Shani occupies 6th-from-10, suggesting long-term adversarial conditions for the undertaking.

France Emperor 1804-1815 Napoleon Bonaparte yuvatipati = [Budha-yuti-Shani] [8] NB's private life was not really private, and his numerous romantic partners were well known. His romantic letters to Josephine are celebrated as literary paragons. Yet, on her side, Josephine was building her social network by having important lovers during NB's multi-year absences. NB, in distant lands and on military campaigns, found intimate companions. Nevertheless, their marriage was upheld until the final challenge of inability to produce a male heir. Despite infidelity being woven into the very fabric of their union, naB declared his great sorrow in having to divorce Josephine. She was clearly not his One-and-Only, but according to NB she was indeed the One.

Josephine's family had a slave-labor Caribbean sugar business [Shukra-Mithuna] in Martinique in the Outre-Mer. She was not raised with extreme scarcity. The family lived by bourgeois island standards, and Josephine had pleasures including slave-maids for most of her life. Despite a constant narrative [3] of scarce resources for the family [Shani in 2nd-from-Shukra wife's family] the business survived many downturns. She had no dowry and promised financial support from her father never did materialize [Shukra-yuti-Ketu, wife's dispersed assets, lost promises] . However, naB's [Shani-3 parivartamsha Chandra-9] [Pushya-Budha-yuti-Shani-Pushya] suggest that the underlying structure of wife-1's family monies was viable. Her father was still in business when he died.

Although a notorious no-limits over-spender with unusual tastes [such as a private zoo full of exotic creatures] from the time that she arrived in France age-16 until her decease age-50, Josephine was always able to obtain resources. Yogakaraka-Shani + Budha ruling 2-5 located in 2nd from Shukra.

Shukra rogesha occupies 6th-from-Chandra. NB's cruelty, verbal harranging, and accusations toward Josephine were well documented by their peers. They were an NPD-BPD pair, and the level of emotional abuse was said to have been extreme.

Nonchalance, separations, animosity, gainfulness

Napoleon was frequently separated [Ketu] from his wives during his extended military campaigns.

  • long separations from nurturing feminine-figures
  • emotional disengagement from marriage vow [Shukra vow]

Shukra rules 6 + 11-fruitfulness, gains, profits, connections, systematic approach.

  • The child of slave-plantation growers from the Caribbean Islands of St. Lucia and Martinique, Josephine was a busy social networker. She knew everyone worth knowing in the Paris of 1795. Naturally, naB valued her exceptional socializing abilities.
  • Josephine was also an extravagant over-spender [6, debt] who used her lovers to pay her bills.

Rogesha [Shukra-yuti-Ketu] occupies the emotionally conflicted [6th-from-Chandra]

It such a challenging yoga that a loyal, sexually exclusive union might be adjudged impossible not only for NB but for his many intimate-partners as well.

Shukra holds a lower degree of 16 while Collapsing Ketu skirts the rashi boundary at zero degrees, suggesting that

  • Josephine had a strong Shukra nature [and her Mūla-Chandra contacts NB's Mula lagna]
  • while the second wife Maria-Louisa was " barely there" [Ketu]. [Yet her Arudra-Chandra occupies NB's bhava-7, signaling an authentic marriage.]

Shukra lifepartner-1

Josephine was the mistress nonchalant of numerous aristocratic and commercially successful Parisian gentlemen.

  • Josephine had been the previous mistress of the top man in France.
  • At the time of her attraction to Napoleon, the previous lover had wished her to be re-purposed ... and to pay her her notorious over-spending [Ketu no boundaries] from another purse [Shukra expense] .

Josephine's first husband, by whom she had two lovely children, had been guillotined [Ketu].

  • She became a courtier in order to support her children and sustain her luxurious tastes.
  • Josephine was introduced to Napoleon by mutual friends and their immediate attraction was said to have been definitive [his Shukra-7 attraction - plus her Mūla-Chandra].

Depending on whether Shukra or Ketu has the higher degree, the second wife may be more distinctively Ketu or more Shukra in their presenting symptoms.

Ketu lifepartner-2

Collapsing Ketu holds the higher degree because Ketu moves // backwards // .

  • Maria-Louisa would be expected to display more pronounced Ketu-characteristics such as misty boundaries, apathy toward the contractual union, and more absence than presence.

France-Emperor 1769-1821 Wars Napoleon Bonaparte was famed for his superb military teamwork. He acknowledged his field-managers which helped to stabilize morale [Chandra]. In the early days of NB's campaigning, disciplined management allowed the French forces to win even when they were greatly outnumbered

Conversation at court functions was said to have been rigidly formulaic. Napolean, like most tyrants, became increasingly paranoid. Rahu-8 = spies everywhere.

[Pushya-Budha-yuti-Shani-Pushya] located in 7th-from-Chandra

Josephine [7th-from-Chandra] was the primary hostess of entertainments in their palaces. Comments upon the artistic performances, room decor and garments, hunts, and gardens, were required but prescribed.

Shani Maraka

The empire-builder was considered a predatory threat to the governments of his enemies, especially Britain .

NB was captured legally and exiled to a remote island. At age 51, at the onset of Shani-Shani svabhukti, NB died of stomach cancer like his father before him.

Shani rules 3-siblings

When NB gained political power, he bestowed royal titles upon all of his surviving siblings. Brilliant, forward-pushing Surya-yuti-Mangala casts a flamboyant entitled drishti into bhava-3 siblings. However, their titles were working portfolios. They earned their fancy clothes.

The amazing, outrageous, over-reaching, astonishing power of Mūla-Rahu-1

  • NB began his career as Emperor by proclaiming himself to be so entitled.
  • No condoning papal authority needed.

Josephine's Mūla-Chandra pada-1 immediately conjuncts NB's Rahu-Mūla-1, within NB's Mula indriya-lagna. Their mutual passion was celebrated. However, the greater reality is that their union was annihilated [Mula] after many years of absence [Ketu]

Ketu = Second wifely-companion

Maria-Louisa [Ketu-yuti-Shukra]

In a husbandly nativity, the second wife [if any] may be indicated by graha yuti Shukra. Typically, kalatra-karaka Shukra represents lifepartner-1. Therefore, the 2nd-wife karaka = Ketu.

Napoleon and Maria Ludovica Leopoldina Franziska Therese Josepha Lucia von Habsburg-Lothringen were married by proxy [shadowy Ketu].

M-L was 15 years old. NB was 41.

Absence patterns

Although there was a large, expensive gala fete at the Viennese court to celebrate Maria-Louisa's nuptials, naapoleon was not physically present for the wedding. The physical meeting and another grander ceremony occurred about a month later.

Historically, there is extensive documentation indicating that Marie-Louisa of Austria was chosen solely for her strategic utility in Napoleon's attempt to fabricate an Empire from treaty relationships with other heads of state. Likely she was aware of being the pawn of an aging narcissist, 24 years her senior.

French Society apprehended Maria-Louisa Hapsburg initially as a gently demure and polite teenage girl, entirely disengaged [Ketu] from the drama and politics of the Royal court.

Absence patterns

In calendar time, the couple were unable to spend even one full year together. Napoleon is quoted as calling Maria-Louisa a disappointment [Ketu]. It is not clear who abandoned whom, but after Napoleon was forced to abdicate his throne [Ketu], maria-Louisa Hapsburg took their son permanently back to Austria. Former Emperor Napoleon never saw either of them again [Ketu].


From Napoleon's perspective, maria-Louisa Hapsburg was a pleasant but unsustainable companion Ketu-yuti-Shukra

As if it never happened

Having completed the Ketu role in NB's narrative, maria-Louisa Hapsburg went along to enjoy the rest of her life, including two additional marriages and more children.

Marie-Louise left Napoleon when she was 24 years old. She lived until age 56, married a total of three times [twice more after Napoleon] and bore a total of four live children. Son Napoleon-2 predeceased her.
