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


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."

[liberating abstract demonstrative discussions]

[scattered romantic mentality]

[Groundless boasting instructions]

[disconnected flamboyant windy talk]

[passively fixated on ambitiously opportunistic friendly- profitable father-figures, patrons, public spiritual guides Rahu-Kumbha-9]


[historical-evaluating Magha-2] [navamsha Ketu-Urisha]


  • [Ketu-Singha] brightly dissociates from creative performance * fragmented entertainments * meaningless display * eccentric intelligence * peculiar brilliance * not limited by celebrity roles * entitled martyrdom * ignores restriction on political opinion * releases a sparkling crimson cloud of divine charisma into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-3] eccentric communications * disinterested in daily chat * writes on foggy abstract topics * dissolves messaging boundaries * implausible prophecy * wandering discussions * can handle esoteric information * irrelevance of normal mental narrative * abandons management tasks * dismisses the standard explanations * disregards conventional discourse * unless other graha in 3, may prefer to live free from younger siblings

[Ketu in classroom-3] suggests a fragmenting, dissolving condition that unsticks the discursive cohesion of the mental status. It need not be crippling, but the sheer openness to non-consensus reality can be perceived as mental incoherence.

One may blur the lines between fact and fiction.

Can be a gifted writer of abstract philosophy, science fiction, or other genre which benefit from collapsing of conventional descriptive categories.

However, there is a tendency to disregard personal boundaries when discussing other people's business. Depending upon Surya, one may be perceived as a wingnut, gossip, or just the neighborhood windbag.

  • Surya-7 + Budha + Shukra for Watts blurs the boundaries when discussing personal relationships. Watts had three marriages and numerous liaisons, which he freely talked about with students and journalists. His partners were less enthusiastic about this careless exposure.

Ketu's disregard for consequences in matters of conversation, announcement, and discourse can create unsustainable narratives that sound plausible, but the information [3] lacks a factual foundation.

[Ketu-Singha] the unsustainable, implausible scripts = typically speculative, creative, romantic, dramatic, or political-gamesmanship.

Lungs [3] may be weakened.


Watts was a cultural diplomat.

In the days of state-paid churches and conformism to one-true-faith, aW's special subject was the outrageously titled "comparative religion" = Rahu-yuti-Guru-9.

His listeners were predominantly English-educated, English-reading, and English-listening. As Anglosphere civilians began to attempt more touring travel to East Asian historic destinations, aW added intellectual interpretations to their growing fascination with all things ancient and Asian.

In the style of a radio professor, the priest AW introduced the key concepts structuring [Shani-1] traditional Asian religious practices. He explained basic elements of culture, philosophy, and ritual to an audience that was previously almost entirely unfamiliar with the subject.

AW wrote dozens of philosophical books + delivered hundreds of radio talks. in the 1960's-70's, watts' visage from book covers became synonymous with the new Western interpretations of Japanese Zen Buddhism [Rahu-9 foreign beliefs] and its instruction to learn to perceive that nothing is inherently real [Ketu-3 instructions] .


= publications on non-reality, announcements, radio, publications on topics of dissolution, disorientation, . One of AW's most successful titles, published during the Cold-War era of obsession with security, was The Wisdom of Insecurity.

"and now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."
