Masculine Public-Figure Examples
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.
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.  . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87
"a very good, honest, and sincere character...
A peace loving disposition.
Eager to live and let live.
A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

Mom = Lucy Mack Smith .
Lucy hailed from a family known for spiritual vision and pronounced demonstrations of public piety.
Before, during, and after her son JS's prominent religious leadership career, mom was an influential force in the Mormon Marketplace.
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.

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.

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