Masculine Public-Figure Examples
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.
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

He is very ambitious and eager for power
He has an innate sense of the importance of his destiny .
He expects everything to come to him as his due

Randhesha Guru-5 activates Meena-11 fundraising
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.
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

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

hardworking, change-resisting, yogakaraka Shani
Falwell's teleministry fundraising campaigns[Surya + Budha-3] appealed to low-mobility and elderly listeners and other socially rigid constituents [Shani] who feared social chang e.
ORTHODOXY = revenue base
Shani-Makara-9 maintainer of doctrinal uniformity
Shani monolithic uniformity vs. USA cultural-religious plurality
National no-exceptions legislation [Shani] to enforce a single local moral code
Shani responds to anxiety
Listening ŚrāvaṇaShani in 10th-from-Chandra represents a leader of populations who fear variety [Guru] and choice [Surya].
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

Rahu-10 the Impostor craves statutory authority + public respect
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.
Mesmerizing Rahu-10 the Leader-Opportunist
[Rahu in bhava-10] seeks opportunities to gain Privilege via leadership, decision-making, executive powers
A remarkable percentage of his listeners were elderly shut-ins and invalids with no physical access to a social community.
The mechanism displays typical Rahu genius.
[Rahu Mahadasha] [age 40.2 until 58.2
Rahu enjoys maximum strength in Kumbha large assemblies, community, economic systems
Rahu-Shani bhukti * Shani-9 rules Rahu-10 * Shani occupies 10th-from-Chandra " the audience"
while appearing [Rahu appearances] to uphold the " greater" sacred law. [Shani-9-Śrāvaṇa]
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 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.
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
Rahu-Kumbha's Mass Delusion
Reagan himself had no religious affiliation and he did not attend worship services at any time during his adulthood,
Financial Distress during Rahu-Chandra bhukti * Chandra rules 6th-from-Rahu
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
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.
