Masculine Public-Figure Examples


Purnavasi - Vutvrta - Jamitra


For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-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.

High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Instructing, Explaining, describing

[Mithuna - Dvamdva] pada 1-2-3 represents 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 capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed 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-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand 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 that develops into doctrine.

Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing [due to Brihaspati 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

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde [1939] Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81

" ... from Arudra to Punarvasu, astartling change in mental development.

In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,

  • capable of delving into and understanding all manner of philosophical and metaphysical postulates.

He revels in abstract thought

  • and has a lively and profound imagination.

He may be also poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse

  • which is the result of an unusually passionate temperament.

He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

  • although unlike the Arudra native, he will not experience poverty." [end quote]

LNT's care passed to his father, who died seven years later.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

Two marriages are expected due to [Shukra-yuti-Shani]

[7th-from-Chandra-3] marriage 1-of -2

LNT's first child was Timofei Bazykin, born to a serf woman. Aksinya Bazykin, the child's mother, was classed in the feudal hierarchy as a piece of property belonging to LNT's family's estate.

Despite her collectivist identity [Kumbha] Axinya maintained a relationship with Tolstoy while raising their son.

marriage 1-of -2 = parenting-partnership-1 with serf Aksinya

  • [Shukra-yuti-Shani] two wives. Shani [base-class] holds the lower degree, which identifies Aksinya as the first wife

  • Although legal equality was impossible, reputedly LNT remained in personal contact with Aksinya, and their shared son. until her death.
  • [this continuing relationship is evidence that Chandra occupies Simha, not Kanya, because 7th-from-Kanya would hold the dis-continuous Ketu]

8th-from-[7th-from-Chandra-3] [2nd-from-Chandra] marriage 2-of -2

  • [Shukra-yuti-Shani] two wives. Shukra [valued-class] holds the higher degree, which identifies Sophie as the second wife

  • Sophie Andreevna Berens [Behrs] was a woman of aristocratic [German] lineage, approved by LNT's class-conscious family [2]

Shukra-2 [wife-2] rules Guru-5 creative writing

  • Sophie Behrs was a dynamo of the Word and the Lineage
  • She vigorously promoted Tolstoy's literary career.

Sophie [Russianized to Sonya] bore thirteen children into the union, even while also she copy-edited and prepared the manuscripts of LNT's increasingly famous literary works [5].

  • Forensic literary analysis suggests that Sophie did considerable original writing as well.
  • While LNT dictated his ideas, sonya was the transcriptionist.
  • Listening to LNT's direct speech, sonya Tolstaya composed many of his manuscripts.
  • For the manuscripts that LNT produced himself, sonya re-wrote his manual edits, and prepared the copious manuscripts as clean-copy for the publisher.

2nd-from-Chandra [emotional condition in alliance-2] contains [Rahu in bhava-4] ruled by Budha-publications

  • While LNT mused, walked, and wrote, land-owning Sofia Behrs [Rahu in bhava-4] managed LNT's substantial feudal estate containing hundreds of serfs and their working children.

It is safe to say that without the decades-long dedication of his educated, literary wife, there would have been no Tolstoy oeuvre.

Eldest child = 5th-from-Chandra

  • son of LNT with serf Axinya = Mangala-7-Dhanus, ason

Mangala rules 6 + 11 +++ 4th-and-9th from Chandra

LNT sired his first child with a the serf Aksinya

  • LNT's eldest son acquired his mother's social rank as permanent servant [serf] bound to the land
  • The son was raised as a serf with no property entitlements and no right to exit the boundaries of the estate on which he was born.

Three years later, tolstoy married a woman of aristocratic rank, sophia [Sonya] Behrs. The 13 aristocratic children that were born to LNT and Sonya Tolstaya would have legally inherited their father's treasuries and landed property.

[imaginative-charitable Revatī-4] [vargottamsha] [navamsha Ketu-Meena]

  • [Ketu-Meena] sleepily dissociates from isolated ashrama * incomplete gestalt * unlimited visionary insight * wandering spirit guides * unsustainable sanctuary * fantasy martyrdom * dissolution of private prayer * foggy boundaries of distant worlds * permeable understanding of cetacean cultures * ignores restrictions on clairsentience * disarrayed dreams * releases a golden oceanic cloud of wisdom into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-10] disregards social rank * no barriers in class-pyramid * fearless toward regulations * martyr to corporate elites * well-known for surrendering * absent from officialdom * irrelevance of government protocols * ambivalent toward public opinion * disinterested in high positions * ignores hierarchical ordering rules * abandons organizational authority * unless other graha in 10, may prefer to live free from heavy leadership duties
