Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Uttarāṣāḍha -Vaishva

Iswara - Utaraztha - Visve-deva - Uthiradaam - Aadi


For Uttarāṣāḍha 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 Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, 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 is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic , politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.

Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic Surya. From the Makara indriya-lagna, nakshatra-pati Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral [Shani].

Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet, their purpose is visionary [Surya]. Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. Their emotional stability in partnership arises from Chandra = yuvati-pati.

Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha .

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"a very good, honest, and sincere character...

A peace loving disposition.

  • Very intelligent and wise.

  • Respected and liked by everyone with whom he comes in contact.

Eager to live and let live.

  • Tolerant to others, giving help where help is required.

A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

  • Such a person makes a good and steady friend,

  • whose friendship is to be valued

  • because it will stand the tests of time and adversity." [end quote]

Dad = Joseph Smith s.

Dad was reported to be a somewhat withdrawn man who was nonetheless excitable in the moment. As part of the occult spiritualism movement which swept through New England and the mid-Atlantic region during the early 1800's, Dad was a rod-worker with a passion for summoning spirits

[Surya in bhava-12] rules bhava-8, providing a Sarala-Yoga protection for both father and son despite their occult [8] adventures.

Surya-Mūla indicates a somewhat disconnected personality who may act with disregard for consequences. The family moved often as restless Dad [Mūla] sought opportunities Surya-yuti-Rahu-12.

As randhresha, Surya indicates dad's interest in the occult and in hidden treasures. Dad had failed as numerous professions and while his sons were maturing he organized them into a treasure-hunting team.

Dad had a famous series of seven symbolic dreams [12] , which are recorded in the church scripture. Just before he died, dad gained some respect as church patriarch Surya-Dhanus.

Mom = Lucy Mack Smith .

Lucy hailed from a family known for spiritual vision and pronounced demonstrations of public piety.

  • She was an important social figure in the Second Awakening era of fervent Christian Revivalism.

Before, during, and after her son JS's prominent religious leadership career, mom was an influential force in the Mormon Marketplace.

  • After her son's death in 1844, mom Lucy lived 12 further years until 1856, facilitating trust and accordance [Chandra activates 7-negotiations] .

Lucy Mack can be considered as a Founding Mother of the emerging religious-economic congregational community.

According to wikipedia entry for Lucy Mack,

" In rural areas of northern New England, the proliferation of evangelical religious sects and the pre-Victorian emphasis on the family as a moral force were especially significant forces in Mack's life. Migrants to this area had taken with them the revolutionary spirit of political independence. They had also encouraged the breakdown of the old order of religious domination. " The grip of colonial religious culture was broken and a new American style of religious diversity came into being." Such a setting became fertile ground for religious experimentation and the birth of indigenous religious sects, some of which " undertook to redefine social and economic order through the model of the extended family." Without stable institutional structures, the family thus became the " crucible" for forming " primary identity, socialization, and cultural norms for rural life" [Marini, 7, 56, 31] . Mack was a product of this environment. "

[Chandra in classroom-1] = Chandra-Makara-Draco = the powerful personality-shaping influence of the Mother.

Chandra-1 yuvati-pati indicates a primary, predominant, emotionally binding, identity-defining relationship with the mother.

[Somana-yuti-Shukra] + [Shukra-double-yogakaraka] adds to the maternal profile strong elements of social status, ladder-climbing toward financial and political rank, and moral [Chandra] leadership ability.

History records Emma Hale Smith as a supportive lifepartner who was allied with her husband's personality and agreed with his programs. After JS death, she defended his reputation against slanderous claims.

[Rahu in bhava-12] Psychic Ambition

Rahu + Surya + Budha + Mangala = occupies the clairsentient, privately guided, imaginative, contemplative, dreamlike [12th-from-Chandra]

Starting in Mangala Mahadasha when he was age-14, Smith was periodically hired as a scryer [psychic] to assist local treasure-hunters. Western New York in the 1820's was experiencing a craze for treasure hunting. Gambling was frowned upon by pious folk, but there was no taboo on the thrill of treasure hunting.

Economic downturns were frequent in the years 1820-1850. Farming was unpredictable due to fluctuating weather, with the years 1830 until 1845 recorded as terribly cold with effectively no real growing season. The theme of sudden rescue from poverty and despair was often expressed through a hope for discovery of miraculous wealth buried under ground.

Popular tools of the scrying trade included various clairsentience-amplifying stones including the legendary seer-stones utilized by Smith to read the Golden Plates.

Controversial Marriages during [Rahu Mahadasha] * Rahu taboo-breaker

17-Jan-1827 Joseph Smith married Emma Hale in Ohio [his age 22] during Rahu-Guru bhukti. In 1830, upon Divine Admonition in Rahu-Shani bhukti, he took a first plural wife [his age 25] .

During the bhukti 1830-1844, Joseph Smith acquired 40 wives ceremonially married in the Mormon Church.

fill all your thoughts with these things."
