Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Aśvini - Dasra


For Aśvini births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing intuitively.

" and now for something completely different"

Innovating Observer

Akasha-ruled chaps express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the observant, nebulizing filters of Ketu. Dasra fellows are famed for their pioneering inventions in medical, scientific, or technological fields. They are often obsessed with tools and gadgets. The 4th pada are nearly always physicians, nurses, or herbalists.

Competitive and irascible, often reclusive and disregarding of others' feelings, boldly productive Dasra are found in medicine, engineering, scientific instrumentation, and all species of gadgetry.

Azvikini are often found in medical or veterinary environments such as pharmacies, laboratories, hospitals, surgeries, and clinics. Due to their psychic [Ketu] capability to engage with astral patterns, Asvakini can also serve as medical intuitives and spiritual healers.

When looking for new ideas, they pursue an intuitive instinct to tap into the Akashic grid. Unconcerned with conforming to conventional expectations, they may seem selfish or rude. However, their job is to innovate, not to submit to old paradigms. Criticism rarely affects them.

Dasra-born h ear the psychic instructions which guide their product design, surgical cutting, or drug formulation. Then, Aśvini actively pushes [Kuja] the ethereal vision into material realization. Whatever endeavor they choose to pursue, Aśvini tend to initiate new methods and produce new things .

Azvakini fellows tend to prefer the freedom of bachelorhood. If they choose to marry, the mate shoulders most of the family duties. Within relationships, much depends upon their Chandra.

Themes of eccentricit y, invention, irritability, and psychic vitality may contextualize Aśvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśvini - Dasra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 84

" ... a happy carefree disposition,

  • very intelligent,

  • in fact a rather above average person in this respect.

He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that

  • he will seldom have to worry about money matters.

In spite of his ability to achieve success,

  • he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements." [end quote]

Dad was a bookseller and publisher [Surya in bhava-3] [Surya-Mithuna]

Pitrikaraka Surya activates Ketu-2 widowhood

  • Dad had been widowed, and Hermann was a child of dad's second marriage to HKH's beautiful mother [Shukra-1 in 2nd-from-Surya].

Hesse accounted 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 [Surya in bhava-12] . HKH's own alcoholism occupies the paternal Surya-12-Guru-6 axis.

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

  • dad = foreigner. Dad served as a religious foreign missionary [12] for the first decades of his career. 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

[Surya in bhava-12] rules [Magha-Ketu in classroom-2]

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

  • In modern terms, dad would have been considered depressed, and Hermann experienced his family as a disconnected lineage Ketu-2.
  • 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 rolesr.

[folk reputation 10th-from-Chandra = mysterious occulted initiating revelatory discovering Vrischika-8]

Religion rules the parents

[Chandra-Meena] [9] occupies a 4/10 angle from [Surya-Mithuna- 12] HKH's parents shared doctrinal commitments shown via Guru's defining effects on both Chandra and Surya.


[Chandra in classroom-9] indicated a pious, devout, believing mother. The bhakti style of Chandra-9 is emotionalized, but the mom may place her religious practice above her unconditional love for her children.

HKH's parents were evangelical missionaries

According to HKH, his parents were deeply committed to their doctrinal-conversion outreach work, but young Hermann outgrew simple catechisms very early in life.

[Chandra in classroom-9] lagnesha suggests that HKH was deeply modeled upon his mother.

Her death at his age 25 plunged him into a vast depression.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

HKH was married three times and twice divorced. Each of his three lifepartners were women of professional accomplishment.

In order, they were a trained photographer, a celebrated singer, and an art historian. Although he expressed frequent dissatisfaction in the married state, HKH generally accounted the third alliance as his happiest.

7th-from-Chandra-9 marriage-1-of-3

  • bhava-3 mentality, manual craft, writing, publication, conversations, thinking
  • Kanya suggests health puzzles. Mia quickly produced three sons in her late 30's. HKH regularly left the family for long adventures in distant lands, leaving Mia isolated and overworked. She was usually upset when he returned.

photographer and businesswoman, nine years elder to HKH [his Karkata lagna]

Bhava-3 receives

drishti emitting from randhrasthāna, including a daunting Kuja Dosha from Rahu-Amplified Kuja-8.

  • Historians generally conclude that during his first marriage, HKH was an

    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.

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

Divorce HKH age 44, Ketu-Rahu bhukti. HKH abandoned the family entirely, and his sons were dispersed among relatives. [Ketu in classroom-2] indicates that the person or thing to be abandoned = the family's culture, traditions, values lineage, genetic line, assets.

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-9 = [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."

  • in 1931

    after several years of cohabiting [HKH age 54]

    during Shukra-Rahu bhukti, HKH married the German-speaking Ukranian-born art historian Ninon Auslander

  • 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-12] 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. Income entirely from full-time writing. HKH stopped writing - except for a few brief reflections on childhood -in his early 60's,

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 editionsr.

Hesse had a great many drinking buddies.

During a time of terrible war [6] while writing from neutral Switzerland, Hesse provided anti-dehumanizing German voice within the violent discourse of annihilation of enemies and race-hated. [Guru-Mūla ] 6 also contributed to his self-medicating alcoholism and multiplied the number of divorces.

HKH suffered highly complex lifetime nerve disorders

[Kumbha nerves skin] = [Shani-yuti-Rahu] + [Kuja-yuti-Rahu] = battling impulses of competitive passion [Rahu, Kuja] vs. and systematic order [Shani, Kumbha]

HKH proceeded upon a lifetime exploration [8] of the psychic depths, tantric secrets, and dangerous associations


kavandha-karaka [headless] chidra-karaka [gaping] vasana-karaka [vacuum]

[for Mesha indriya-lagna]

[unconcerned with speculation on election campaigns and melodrama]

[scattered political intelligence]

[disengaged witness to creative games]

liberated from entitled ceremonies]

[dispersed charisma]

[material relationship to children, especially but not exclusively the eldest, may theatrically dissolve. The spiritual relationship remains.]

[passively fixated on ambitiously friendly- profitable Rahu-Kumbha-11 friends, socialites, earners, awards, revenues, economists, distributors, associates, community-links]


[rhythmic-protective Magha-4][navamsha Ketu-Karkata]

  • [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-5] ambivalent toward ceremony * disoriented offspring * wandering eldest child * demonstrates dramatic confidence in non-existent things * apathetic toward intellectual authenticity * ungrounded speculation * disregards standard intelligence * eccentric creativity * incoherent romantic ideals * disinterested in games * liberation via surrender of entitlements * unless other graha in 5 or Ketu's ruler is strong, may prefer to live free from children


Ketu occipes the emotionally adversarial [6th-from-Chandra]. Tendency to surrender, walk-out, abandon in preference to confronting or directly accusing an adversary. Often seems to have a / teflon coating / to which complaints, lawsuits, attacks simply cannot stick.

[Ketu in classroom-2] provides an amputated link to the heritage and the family of origin. HH's birth family were abandoning in their behavior, with a tendency to grant their religious convictions much more value than their parental love. [2, value]

The early part of HH's Ketu Mahadasha [age 39.7-46.7] was particularly dissociative and disconnective.

  • 1918 [HKH age 41] mental health dissociation, treated by Carl Jung - Ketu-Shukra bhukti* Shukra rules 3rd-from-Chandra conversations
  • 1919-1920 [HKH age 44] divorce from alliance-1 causes HKH to abandon his three sons. The children are flung into homes of relatives.

    - Ketu-Rahu bhukti [Rahu in bhava-8] sudden upheaval

Within the typical range of disorientation for the Ketu Mahadasha experience, HH reported the worst of the zombie sort of unreality and inability to bond general peaks by the time of the Ketu-Rahu bhukti.
