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 - Aditya

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81

" ... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling 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 a 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."

  • [Rahu-Kumbha] shimmering illusion of profitable webworks * over-reaching friendliness * mirage of knitted netting knotwork * fabulous marketplace associations * extraordinary electro-magnetic connections * intriguing ecologies * mask of lawfully interlinked systems * fascinating achievements * culturally mixed social networks * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of scientific futurism * extravagant assemblies * finds opportunity in economic distribution * craves community-linkage * seeks privilege via socialite-roles

  • [Rahu in bhava-9] passion for prestige preaching * in svabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter gives glamorous guidance * thrilling surge of theoretical understanding * entranced by one's own convictions * dazzling dharma * outsider who cleverly insinuates into patriarchal wisdom roles * seeks importance via sacred teachings * fantastic philosophy * compulsive catechesis * privilege-seeking proselytism * intriguing ideology * ambitious father-figures * extraordinary professors * barrier-breaching guru-figures * exciting culturally-mixed worldview * may pose as a pope * shimmering illusion of sacerdotal sangha * fabulous faith community * surreptitious appropriation of priesthood * entrancing ecclesiastics * smoky specter of ultimate principles * extravagant globalism * trespasses cultural boundaries of patronage * mirage of exemplary fatherhood * opportunistic third marriage (if any) * social mobility sought via paradigms of belief

  • The grandfather of Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle was a high-society English artist [Shukra] who connoitered with royalty. C-D's bio-father was a gifted artist who collapsed into severe alcoholism, mental illness, and epilepsy - and was institutionalized. The father's self-medicating addiction to alcohol thrust the family into dire circumstances. Yet there is a rescue from Rahu-9, patriarchs. C-D received a top professional education and travelled the world [Rahu-9]. While entirely forthright about his father's disease, he also printed his father's drawings in his own books and maintained an affectionate bond with his incarcerated dad, until the papa died.

[competitive-dominating Magha-1] [navamsha Ketu-Mesha]

  • [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-12 for C-D blurs the fantasy-reality boundaries, and led to the collapse of C-D's once high social credibility for claiming that he had photographic evidence [3] of fairies and sprites.

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 narratives = typically speculative, creative, romantic, dramatic, or political-gamesmanship.

Lungs may be weakened. [C-D suffered recurring pneumonias]
