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.


[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

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

  • and usually gets what he sets out to obtain ."

Familiar, Soothing parental Chandra = Meets a Need

JLF was able to embody the faithful listeners' yearning to return to the more secure values [Bharani] of a more predictable, more rhythmically seasonal time long-past.

JLF predated [6th-from-Chandra] upon an audience that tended to be socially isolated, often elderly and shut-ins [12] prone to -12 fantasies harkening to the beliefs of their childhood [Chandra].

Guru-5 occupies the emotionally contentious [6th-from-Chandra] indicating an argumentative, accusatory, toxic entertainment venture [5] based in Kanya's patterns of blaming, scapegoating, and criticizing.

Combined rulers of 8 + 12 = Guru-yuti-Mangala -5 politics, drama, entertainment, speculative finance

Guru randhresha [taxes] occupies 6th-from-Chandra = double protection from consequences

  • Although many of his financial activities contradicted campaign-finance and tax law, JLF faced no consequences
  • He triumphed in a number of defamation lawsuits although he lost a few litigious battles as well.
  • Despite intentionally misusing tax-free religious donations for political contributions to the Reagan election, JLF was never indicted.

Randhresha [taxes] Guru-Kanya hides activities of politics-5 for mutual benefit

Under auspice of randhresha Guru, using the USA federal tax [8] exemptions which protect religious organizations, JLF transformed abundant [8] charitable donations into a political boon [Guru-5]

  • For two decades, JLF's political beneficiaries, in turn, prevented tax-authority inquiry into his organization's finances.

Randhesha Guru-5 activates Meena-11 fundraising

[Kuja-yuti-Guru] * agreed to supply the majority Christian White Evangelical vote and fund USA 1980-1984 national elections. Agreements were not legal due to Shukra-yuti-Ketu

JLF's tax-free political fundraising cloaked in religious disguise [Brihaspati sacred teachings] set a high standard for bold leadership in the televangelism industry

Randhresha Guru the Non-Discloser behind a veil of cheerful secrecy produced tax-free revenues with no transparenc y and no punitive consequences.

  • Falwell never came under investigation for tax fraud, never went to jail,
  • unlike most fellow televangelists, he never suffered scandal or disgrace

A significant element of his political empowerment was his ability to gather untaxed monies under camouflage of religious ministry. By clever legal argumentation [Guru-Kanya] Falwell and his advisors were able to camouflage political campaign monies to appear to be un-taxable religious donations.

eventually, the US Treasury department intervened, yet Falwell was never convicted of any crime.

Ruler of 8-covered + 11-revenues

During a lifetime of holding public positions, Falwell became a very wealthy man

  • Yet, his treasury is locked into legally masked family trusts

Power of Guru-Drishti

Drishti of randhresha Guru-Kanya-5 into doctrinal-authority Shani-9-Makara in 10th-from-Chandra

  • virtually ensures that Falwell's public reputation would remain unsullied because the facts of the case would remain legally [Makara] obscured behind lawful camouflage..

Guru-5 drishti to bhava-1 = Physique * from athlete to portly

  • Teenage Jerry Falwell was a baseball athlete .
  • As a highschooler, JLF was recruited to join a professional baseball league.
  • In middle and later age, Reverend Falwell came to suffer from obesity.
  • Atmakaraka athletic Mangala expanded by generous Guru ++ Guru casts drishti upon lagna-1 [portliness] .

  • JLF's political connections brought substantial government funding into Liberty University's coffers
  • while at the same time he was engaged in vigorous preaching against government agencies and particularly against financial assistance programs.
  • JLF also consistently addressed himself as Doctor Falwell, despite having no earned doctorate


  • Dad operated a bordello = Surya rules 4
  • Many women in the home, although they are of a spacey nature = Shukra-yuti-Ketu--4

[Shukra-yuti-Ketu] -4

Founded in 1971 during Falwell's Mangala-Shukra bhukti,

  • Liberty University promotes an anti-government rhetoric. Yet while training generations of students to view the governing principle of separation of Church and State with contempt, this institution continues to accept millions of dollars in government aid every year

Collapsing Ketu -4 offers freedom - and incoherence - educational funding [Shukra]

  • Yet this incoherence is not challenged [Ketu] by the financial-aid funding agencies.

For Mesha-Chandra, sweets-seeking Shukra activates financial 2nd [capital] ++ 7th [contracts] -from-Chandra-lagna

As always for Urisha indriya-lagna nativities, sweet-seeking Shukra = BOTH lagnesha + rogesha. The sweets may become toxic.

  • Falwell was noted for making and breaking contracts and promises in the areas of finance and alliance.

[Shukra-yuti-Ketu]* Shukra = grace * Ketu = disgrace

  • During Rahu-Shukra bhukti in 1987,
  • Falwell expediently [Rahu casts passionate drishti into Shukra] agreed to assume leadership [Rahu-10] of the disgraced but profitable PTL televangelism empire.
  • Six months later -- still in Rahu-Shukra bhukti -- Falwell walked out of the organization [Ketu abandonment] .

  • Shani's power engages the community of the fearful

Shani monolithic uniformity vs. USA cultural-religious plurality

  • Falwell's fundraising campaigns promised donors that their support would help to impose [Shani] the singular cultural morality of predominantly rural-Christian ethnic-white folkways via the mandates of legal institutionalization [Shani].

National no-exceptions legislation [Shani] to enforce a single local moral code

  • it is a perpetual cycle in pluralistic Euro-America
  • Mithuna-ruled commercially driven mixed populations are occasionally beset by a fervently conformist legislative moralistic movement.
  • It is allowed because Shani is a friend of America's planetary patron Budha.
  • However, these campaigns [for example, Prohibition] no matter how sanctimonious
  • always fail due to the underlying pluralistic fabric of this diverse nation

Shani responds to anxiety

Listening ŚrāvaṇaShani in 10th-from-Chandra represents a leader of populations who fear variety [Guru] and choice [Surya].

  • Despite a pluralistic society and given the long history of constitutional law in the USA, notwithstanding the historic assurance of separation of Church and State established in the USA constitution. The anxious and obedient congregants [Shani-9] wanted legalization [Shani] of a single national moral doctrine [9]

USA is a commercial nation. Slavery, alcohol prohibition, and other anti-commercial regimes were all eventually toppled by the overarching guidance of business-Budha.

Yet Shani does not surrender. He only resists.

Shani-9 in 10th-from-Chandra also receives expansive, generous drishti of Guru-Kanya-5

Surya-Rahu bhukti = Rahu 6/8 from Surya

  • Raised by an atheist father and never religious in his youth, Falwell underwent a doctrinal conversion at age 18.5]
  • From that decisive moment forward, he understood himself to have been Chosen as a faith leader with a mass-communications [Kumbha] focus.

Rahu-10 the Impostor craves statutory authority + public respect

  • Falwell used " Doctor" as his personal title, referring to himself respectfully as " d. Falwell" . Yet Mr. Falwell's academic credential consisted of a bachelor's diploma from an unaccredited college. He had never earned a university doctoral diploma [nor even started a doctoral study program.
  • Although he possesses no earned doctorate, Falwell adopted the professional authority title " doctor" [meaning Learned One] .
  • Although he never served as a government official, either appointed or elected, Falwell claimed to represent the political governance [10] choices of millions of voters.

Rahu in [11th-from-Chandra] supplies community

connects the isolated, shut-ins, invisible, needy populations of 12

As the inimitable coach-of-commerce Dale Carnegie famously declared, in order to make money in the USA one must " find a need and fill it" !

Here was the Need.

  • Rahu's opportunistic quest for privilege was motivated emotionally by community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked [11th-from-Chandra]

Mesmerizing Rahu-10 the Leader-Opportunist

[Rahu in bhava-10] seeks opportunities to gain Privilege via leadership, decision-making, executive powers

  • social mobility [Rahu] via outreach [Kumbha] to national audience

A remarkable percentage of his listeners were elderly shut-ins and invalids with no physical access to a social community.

  • In olden days, their social life would have materialized mainly in context of weekly attendance in a physical congregation of worship.
  • At church, they met friends and extended family
  • in that fellowship [11] they reinforced their whole-person well-being.
  • The need of this specific audience for familiar connection through values-based worship was easily tapped by a Rahu-Kumbha economic systems operator such as Falwell.

The mechanism displays typical Rahu genius.

  • The membership [Kumbha groups] connected to the outside world only via television or radio broadcast
  • they completed the exchange-linkage by telephone to give their financial donation, thus satisfying their need for community and creating a route for economic participation in a social cause
  • However, in fact these donors remained anonymous except to the telephone receptionist who issued them a donor number [Kumbha opposes Surya's self-center]


[Rahu Mahadasha] [age 40.2 until 58.2

  • Nov-1980 acknowledged as a hidden, primary agent ensuring the election of POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan

while appearing [Rahu appearances] to uphold the " greater" sacred law. [Shani-9-Śrāvaṇa]

  • Typical of loophole-slithering Rahu the Mixer, Falwell's Moral Majority movement sought to avoid entrapment by the legally embedded principles of USA constitutional separation of Church and State

Rahu the Mixer * Mix-and-Stir

Mixing the categories of private belief with public regulation, Falwell's Christian Nation initiative* mixed-and-stirred * matters of private religious conviction into the realm of public governance decisions about who may hold public office.

Rahu-10 expediently blurs reality

opportunistically amplifies the Illusion of Order

Despite the conventionalized outward personality conferred by a steady and hierarchical Śrāvaṇa-Shani-9, Falwell's Rahu-10 shows a successfully opportunistic, marketplace [Kumbha] rule-breaker and risk-taker

Shani rules Rahu-10 = expedient risk in social policy

doctrine of the Christian Nation

Shani intakes drishti from Kanya-Guru+Kuja-5 = logical arguments in politics

  • Falwell argued that, under the doctrine of The Christian Nation, there was a principled justification [9 principle] for blurring the institutionalized distinction [Rahu-10 ] between Church and State.
  • The historical fact that the USA constitution specifically forbids that blurring was considered negotiable by Falwell .

Falwell was not the first and likely will not be the last to opportunistically promote a Shani-style no-choices society = one-faith, one-language, one-ethnicity, ethnoreligion, one-political-party.

  • However, the USA is a Guru-guided pluralistic society in reality.
  • Shani's endless insistence upon social homogeneity is a permanent voice in American governance
  • Yet it rarely succeeds due to the commercial pattern [Budha] being more authentic.
  • Even Falwell knew this, and in later years he supported the legality of civil rights for all Americans

Rahu Mahadasha [age 42.2 until 60.2 * duration 18 years * 1973 until 1991

Structured by Rahu's ruler Shani-9 in 11th-from-11th, Falwell's campaign to mix matters of Church and State continued to mount from 1973 collapse of the conformity-seeking Nixon administration.

From end of Nixon's regime, Falwell built himself an essential role in the nationwide conservative Republican political promotion of the 1980-1988 regime of POTUS-40 American Life 1911-2004 Ronald Reagan.

Moral Majority Rahu-10

From 1978 until 1988, Falwell was one of the most powerful kingmakers of his day.

He almost single-handedly delivered the fundamentalist Christian Moral Majority vote to the ascending politically classist, conformist USA Republican party during the 1980 and 1984 Reagan-era elections

According to Wikipedia,," In 1979, Falwell founded the Moral Majority, one of the largest political lobby groups for evangelical Christians in the United States. The group is credited with delivering two-thirds of the white, evangelical Christian vote to Ronald Reagan during the1980 presidential election."

Rahu-Shani Bhukti = Proof of Credenda for Governing Officials

Representing Shani's fear of individuality and creativity, the Moral Majority voting block demanded that winning candidates for social leadership must prove their religious convictions.

Power-hungry Rahu-10 appropriates a convenient resource

  • Co-founder Paul Weyrich, Falwell himself, and the Moral Majority organization, are considered to have had the decisive, controlling influence in the control and manipulation of the Conservative Christian voting-bloc.
  • The millions of dollars in funding that they contributed under the guise [Rahu] of tax-exempt religious donation was in fact used as political capital to subsidize the 1980 campaign of aging [Shani] Reagan.and Republican party operatives throughout the country.

Rahu-Kumbha's Mass Delusion

Reagan himself had no religious affiliation and he did not attend worship services at any time during his adulthood,

  • Nevertheless, the power-brokers assured Falwell's faithful that Righteous Reagan was deeply committed to their cause of legally imposing their heritage ethnic values upon the diverse nation.
  • He wasn't, but that is the beauty of Smoke-and-Mirrors Rahu,

Financial Distress during Rahu-Chandra bhukti * Chandra rules 6th-from-Rahu

  • Nearing the end of Rahu Mahadasha, Moral Majority lost most of its donations.
  • Falwell shuttered the operation.

Rahu-Mangala chidra-dasha in 1990-1991 * Rahu runs out of Power

in his late 50's, Falwell stopped most of his public political preaching as the Rahu chidra-dasha dwindled

  • it was a foregone conclusion that the 1992 election would bring a Democratic win.
  • Beginning with the administration of diversity-supporting POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton , Falwell's proposal to return modern USA to the historical time of European nationalized churches lost most of its political viability.


decease in Guru-Rahu chidra-dasha

Once Rahu's 18 year era of Thrilling Excitement was concluded in 1991, Falwell stopped public policy preaching.

Nevertheless, he maintained until his death a recognizable profile as a an iconic figure in the centuries-old USA Bible Belt.

  • This demographic represents a persistent bloc of folk resistance [Shani] to the Enlightenment principles of government underlying the USA Constitutional separation of Church and State.
  • and foe alike still refer to the infallible reverend as Pope Falwell, in respect to his iconic Shani-Rahu ability to lead and represent that bloc.
