  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81.

BPL commentary: For Arudra natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

"Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Mithunaya radical Lagna * Arudra


Chandra * matrikaraka

Kuja * bhratrukaraka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisyakaraka

Budha-8 suggests a relatively early flesh death and quick cycles of identity-destruction. However the drishti from Shani-2, who rules 8-9, directly into bhava-8 is a strict restrainer of the self-destructive forces, which extends the lifespan and also suggests a conservative, risk-averse mentality and a restrained, almost bureaucratic style of speech.

Guru * dhavakaraka

Meena-Guru-10 * drishti to 4 while Guru also sends drishti to Zukra-yuti-Chandra * owns a luxury yacht, plus oceanside homeland properties

Zukra * kalatra-karaka * svadhu-karaka

rogesha Mangala-12 occupies 7th-from-nichha Chandra parivartamsha vyayapathi Zukra-6 yuti nichha-Chandra

Zukra-yuti-Chandra -nichha produces the predictable sense of indulgent entitlement to pleasure as a reward for self-estimated deprivation and hard work. There was a widely publcized infidelity sex scandal and Mr. Woods entered therapy for sex addiction after 15 sexual-services mistresses publically announced their relationship to him with #15 being the daughter of one of their neighbor families. Mr. Woods admitted to having sex with approximately 120 women.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani ruler of the dharmabhava Karakamsha Kumbha-9

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka

Ketu * kavandha-karaka

Announced during Surya-Rahu period "center of attention, games, celebrity" (wikipedia quote)

  • "In July 2010, Forbes announced Tiger Woods as the richest sportsman in the world earning a reported $105m according to them and $90.5m according to Sports Illustrated." Rahu occupies 11th-from-Chandra

In the years following his catastrophic fall from grace (Rahu) period, Mr. Woods earnings dropped from a figure approaching 1-billion (before expenses) to a figure reported to be in the neighborhood of 50-million-USD annually. A drop from a Rahu-exorbitant peak perhaps but more of a market correction and not a devastating collapse.

Some financial benefits flow from Chandra ruler of finance-2, Zukra-yuti-Chandra, and Rahu's ruler Zukra rules 5-celebrity, winnings in parivartamsha with Mangala-12 ruling 11-economic gains.

scattering of income, friendship networks . This placement suggests few friends, and a disconnection to the elder siblings. Strong effect during childhood, age 5-12. Simultaneously, Rahu-5 urges to make one the center of attention.

That routine includes the Shani rules-2 + bhratrupathi-3 drill of asset-acquisition and self-earned funds, which predictably will continue and when Surya mahadasha begins the strength of personality (Surya dharmesha-9 in radical lagna) is likely to provide even more loot.

Golfing athletic style, According to Wikipedia :

"Despite his power advantage, Woods has always focused on developing an excellent all-around game. Although in recent years he has typically been near the bottom of the Tour rankings in driving accuracy, his iron play is generally accurate, his recovery and bunker play is very strong, and his putting (especially under pressure) is possibly his greatest asset.

He is largely responsible for a shift to higher standards of athleticism amongst professional golfers, and is known for putting in more hours of practice than most."

"While Woods is considered one of the most charismatic figures in golfing history, his approach is, at its core, cautious. He aims for consistency. Although he is better than any other Tour player when he is in top form, his dominance comes not from regularly posting extremely low rounds, but instead from avoiding bad rounds.

He plays fewer tournaments than most professionals (15 - 21 per year, compared to the typical 25 - 30) and focuses his efforts on preparing for (and peaking at) the majors and the most prestigious of the other tournaments. His manner off of the course is cautious as well, as he carries himself in interviews and public appearances with a carefully controlled demeanor." [Budha-Makara-8]
