Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Revati - Pausan

Pashu - Pushana-vana - Antyabha


For Revatika births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

Pashu the Pastor may be sensitively attuned to the signals of the animal kingdom. Hearing [Budha] the voices of mineral, plant, animal, and human worlds, antyabha-born often work for the welfare of all creatures. Many veterinarians and animal-welfare activists are Revatī-born. These way-showers are also found in all aspects of music and dancing, producing melodies, beats, and lyrics.

Whatever the Pashu folk say, others will follow and believe.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Antyabha, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, castmates, classmates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts -- and beasts of every description - may be especially influential.

Budha's amsha favors business of all types. Revati may produce imaginatively talkative attorneys especially commercial lawyers. Partners, siblings, and companions may also follow the logical argumentor's trade.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of stars clustered near Zeta Piscium. Their purpose is to shepherd the flocks in safe passage, calling them to follow with an imaginative, sweet sound and rhythm

The Way-Shower

Revatika expresses the natural tension between Busy Bantering Budha and Guiding Generous Guru. Commercially oriented Budha is a master of writing, reporting, cinema, and detailed communication. Kumara naturally matches the vibration of chatty students and a younger audience. Yet, brihaspati much prefers to preach on broad-scope topics, ideology and inclusive doctrine.

Paushna-born often find themselves in shepherding roles that require delivering a message to their herd of followers. The usual delivery style is musical, oratorical, or imaginative, but any method of Showing the Way may be chosen. Pashu the Pastor combines a broad welcoming vision with a beckoning repeating signal frequency such as a slogan, ajingle, or a melody.

Themes of pastoral guidance, musical messaging, and benevolent outreach to all creatures may contextualize Revatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Revatī - Pashu


from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 89

" ... often distinguished by a birthmark on the thigh.

They usually have well formed and beautiful physiques

  • although not necessarily large or robust

They are fond of their family and friends

  • and very sociable and hospitable .

They may not be born to wealth

  • but they have the ability to accumulate the good things of life

  • through their own efforts and usually will.

They will know how to enjoy wisely and well the fruits of their endeavors.

These people are wise and intelligent

and make excellent counselors

  • to those who are in trouble
  • or are in a dilemma over some problem of life."

A fiercely religious man known for the force of his sermons and written moral tracts, dad was a bookseller and publisher [Surya in bhava-3] [Surya-Mithuna]

Pitrikaraka Surya


  • Dad had been widowed, and Hermann was a child of dad's second marriage to HKH's beautiful mother [Shukra-4 in 2nd-from-Surya].

Hesse recounted his father to be a difficult and largely inaccessible man. [12]

  • Although working for an evangelical mission based in Germany, dad was of Russian ancestry HKH's own alcoholism occupies the paternal Surya-12-Guru-6 axis.

Budha the ruler of Surya occupies 12th-from-Surya

  • Russian-born and Russian-speaking, dad = foreigner.
  • Dad served as a religious foreign missionary for the first decades of his career. [10th-from-Surya = 12]

In modern terms, dad might have been considered exhausted, withdrawn, or depressed [ruler of Surya in 12th-from-Surya].

HKH recounted his father as difficult of access and socially distant.

  • However, dad's bookstore-and-publishing business - combined with his scholarly maternal grandfather's rich academic library -- gave HKH extraordinary invitation to vast literary worlds

After many years of church-work [and perhaps a bit of espionage] dad acquired ownership of a publishing bookstore Surya-Mithuna in Germany.

  • HKH was immersed in the world of literature and the mechanics of publication since early childhood

Dad was older and already retired from his first career when Hermann was born into dad's second marriage.

Guru in 7th-from-Surya shows two-or-more unions for the father

  • , and Hermann experienced his family as a disconnected lineage
  • The total effect is paternal neglect.

Importantly, the very experience of difficulty connecting [Ketu] with an empowered but unloving dad provided an impetus toward Hesse's literary explorations of male-to-male relationships in unbalanced authority roles.


Herself the daughter of a respected scholar, mom was a poet. She instilled a love of art and music into young HKH. His childhood talent for rhyming was considered evidence of the family gift for speech and song.


HKH's maternal grandfather Hermann Gundert held a Ph.D., and was a translator of academic texts. HKH had free rights to plunder grandfather's library, which was contained many intellectual and storytelling books representing world literature.

  • In an industrialized world that had become externally dangerous and meaningless, HKH's works collectively represented the cult spiritual interiority of the postwar generation in N. America and Europe. [12]

Religion rules the parents

HKH's parents shared doctrinal commitments

MOTHER - Marie Gundert (1842-1902)

[Chandra in classroom-12] Mom was an evangelical Pietist missionary

According to

Hesse's mother was born in Talatscheri, India Chandra-12, the daughter of the Pietist Missionary and Indologist, Hermann Gundert of Stuttgart (1814-1892)

HKH's parents were both overseas Christian missionaries, whose conversion programming targeted India. According to HKH, his parents were deeply committed to their ethno-religious outreach work [Kumbha connection] [Somana-yuti-Kuja] [Somana-yuti-Shani] [Somana-yuti-Rahu]

Early in his teenage life, young Hermann outgrew his parents' simplistic moralizing catechism.

He turned inward [12] to look for meaning and guidance.. His struggles with his parent's aggressively rigid absolutism [Somana-yuti-Kuja] and their outdated moralistic restrictions [Somana-yuti-Shani] thrust HKH into mental and emotional conflict with their foreign-missions worldview. [12]

Shani-Rahu bhukti + complex nishturabhashi yoga

Following Mom's liberation from the Earthen-body [HKH age 25] he plunged him into a vast depression. He refused to attend her funeral.

His unresolved grief from the childhood trauma caused by his complicated, emotionally unavailable, withholding mom then provoked the alcoholism always lurking within Shukra in 6th-from-Chandra.

MARRIAGES partnership emotional equity support expectations

HKH was married three times and twice divorced.

Each of his three lifepartners were women of professional accomplishment.

  1. a pioneering trained photographer
  2. a celebrated singer
  3. a respected art historian.

Although he expressed frequent dissatisfaction with the married state, HKH generally accounted the third alliance - avowed his age 55 -- as his happiest.

  • Simha creativity, entitlement, gambling-games, theatre, romance, children

Maria "Mia" Bernoulli descended from the distinguished mathematical Bernoulli lineage

MB was a professionally trained photographer and businesswoman, naine years elder to HKH

Mia quickly produced three sons in her late 30's.

HKH regularly left the family for long adventures in distant lands, leaving Mia isolated, unsupported, and overworked. She was usually upset when he returned.


KHK [Mangala in bhava-12] + Shani-Rahu-Chandra produces an empowered [Kuja-Dosha] upon bhava-7

  • Historians generally conclude that during his first marriage, HKH behaved like a negligent, bullying, narcissistic husband. Mia may have qualified as a BPD wife.

As a pretext for divorce within a judgmental, conservative social environment, Hesse claimed that Mia was schizophrenic and psychotic.

Yet, her "breakdown" occurred only once, during the multi-year catastrophic angry divorce from her admittedly self-obsessed and vindictive, alcoholic husband HKH.

  • Following their divorce settlement, mia behaved normally and enjoyed a happy life .

Having been mainly an absentee father, after divorce HKH abandoned the family entirely, and his sons were dispersed among relatives.

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-12 = [2nd-from-Chandra] marriage-2-of-3

  • In 1924, after eight years alone, HKH remarried the celebrated singer Ruth Wenger during Shukra-Shukra svabhukti
  • HKH was himself an aspiring singer
  • bhava-10 professional recognition
  • Mesha energy, forward-motion, vigor, conquest
  • The union was short-lived. RW returned to her structured performance lifestyle

8th from [Shukra-1]

  • contains the complex, combustible, and contradictory Shani-Rahu-Mangala cluster in Kumbha-8
  • Second lifepartnership = troubled, brief, explosive

In 1928, HKH wrote a poem Einer einstigen Geliebten about RW: Considering the intense planetary population of Kumbha-bhava-8, it is more likely that he is writing not to his second wife, but to himself.

"You celebrated the Sacrament with me,

but lust appeared to you along with love,

therefore you did not unveil me.

You never revealed to me the anxious riddle of your being and confiding in love,

You always remained a mystery to me."

  • bhava-5 art, creativity, genius, intelligence, romance
  • Vrischika initiation, transformation, sudden unexpected changes, exploration

According to HKH, his third marriage was the most engaging.

3rd from [ Shukra-1]

  • bhava-3 management
  • Kanya service, ministry, helpfulness

Ninon Auslander secretarially [3] organized HKH's literary and fine-arts oevre, creating a filing system for his manuscripts, correspondence, copyrights, licenses, contracts

  • They lived happily with a degree of secrecy [Vrischika] which allowed HKH the ideal [5] lifestyle, and furthered his literary creativity. With NA's quietly able assistance, HKH won the Nobel Prize his age 70.

Budha = super-earner from writing, publication, translation, reprints

Hesse's father [Surya-Mithuna-4] owned a publishing company. After a few early years working as a clerk in bookstores, HKH's earnings were derived exclusively via his own book sales.

Hesse lived until age 85, he traveled extensively, lived on a garden estate, and he never practiced any other job except full-time writing-and-publishing.

Income entirely from full-time writing.

in his early 60's, HKH stopped writing -- except for a few brief reflections on childhood.

Yet, his third wife [Kanya-3 = 3rd-from-Shukra] assiduously catalogued his writings, thus assuring that his literary contracts were honored. Due to Ninon Auslander's business skills, Hesse continued to earn from royalties as his books went into translation editions.

Virtually all of HKH's books are still in print, and his estate continues to collect revenues from new editions.
