  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

BPL commentary: For Visaka natives, the condition of Professor Guru considerably affects the outcome. Teachers, preachers, patrons, ideologues, philosophers, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

"... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

Surya rules and casts drishti into Simha- 6th-from-Chandra agency of emotional conflict. he bhava and its denizens = agents (persons and environments) of accusation and betrayal (everyone has some of these agents). Economic activities (11) in general, and the father-figure in particular, are charged with the patterns of accusation and grievance.

Jobs' bio-father * Abdulfattah Jandali from Syria. At the time of the birth of his son, the bio-dad was a graduate student completing his PhD in economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At the time of the birth of her son, the birth mother was an undergraduate student in the same economics classes wherein the father served as a Teaching Assistant.

(Compare to the birth parents of POTUS-44 Audacity of Hope 1961- Barack H. Obama, similar situation, University of Hawai'i.)

The father's adult livelihood was gained as casino manager and small-businessman. Surya-5 casino gambling rules 11-earnings. The father said that he had no interest in meeting his famous son since the bio-dad might be accused of wanting money. Jobs publicly disavowed his bio-dad. Surya weakened in Kumbha

In early infancy, the baby boy was adopted and named Steven Paul. Jobs acquired a supportive adoptive father who raised him securely if modestly. The adoptive father is seen via 8th-from-Surya-5 = radical Thula lagna.

Adoptive father's career = "repo man" whose duty is to repossess the automobiles of those who failed to repay their car-purchase loan 9-Guru-yuti-Zukra, Guru rules 6. The adoptive father was a modest rank-and-file worker = 6.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Chandra-6 occupies 3rd-from-Budha = emotionally sourced talkativeness, often talking about phenomena of 6 including disagreement, disavowal

marriage-1 unavowed, distanced = 7th-from-Chandra bhava-12

2nd marriage public, avowed = Mangala-Meza in 2nd-from-Chandra strengthened because Mangala also rules bhava-2 public view of 2nd marriage

Difficulties with bio-parents, well spoken toward adoptive parents = 8th-from-6 radical thula lagna


Professor Chandra rules bhava-10 in 9th-from-10th. Although there is typically much professional-reputation frustration embedded in karmesha-in-6,, one becomes associated in the public recognition with matters of foundational civilization, such as foundational schooling, housing, folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, folkways, and a "way of life". Jobs is credited with helping to make the computer into a home appliance and changing the "way of life" telephone device into a type of a personal servant Chandra in classroom-6

10th from Chandra is very highly energized

is ruled by Guru-yuti-Ketu-9 and inhabited by Zukra-yuti-Rahu-3. Guru ruler of 3 also casts expansive drizthi into 3. Rahu is a barrier-breaker and Ketu is a disperser. He had both. Jobs had many ups-and-downs in his storied electronics-design career, but he was most successful as a salesman, hyper-promoter, and explainer (bhava-3).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Mangala-7 receives drishti of uttama-Shani

Kuja in 2nd-from-Chandra profiles the second marriage (to Ms. Powell)

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

foreign guru (Japanese Zen priest spiritual guide)

Guru-yuti-Ketu rules Chandra-6 = the mother disappears, the childhood home 4th-from-Chandra evaporates (circumstances of infant adoption

GURU Guru-yuti-Ketu-9 rules Chandra-6 issues with parenthood

the computer designer and showman was famously adopted as an infant. Chandra = ruler-of-10 and he wished to live as securely as possible yet his privacy was constantly disturbed (Ketu). Guru-yuti-Ketu-9 in 4th-from-Chandra ensured that the identity of his birth parents remained surrounded by a haze (Ketu) for a long time. In addition he became himself a parent as a young bachelor, but evaded the fact of his parenthood claiming (variously) that he was sterile (Ketu) or that the paternity tests were unreliable (Ketu unreliable) Adversarial Guru ruler of 3-and-6 is often a problematic agent for Thula radical nativity, and when Brihaspati rules Chandra-6 then Professor Guru can carry an emotionally charged argument farther than normal.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra receives drishti of uttama-Shani ++ drishti of Guru-yuti-Ketu

Zukra ruler of 8 in 8th-from-8th * a transformative personality * may affect lifespan

lagnesha Zukra-yuti-Rahu: expedient announcements; Zukra-Rahu located in 8th-from-8th transformative, radical upheaval

Zukra hidden assets, undisclosed accounts, secret funds

According to Wikipedia,

"According to Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari had offered US$100 for each chip that was reduced in the machine. Jobs had little interest or knowledge in circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the bonus evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips. Much to the amazement of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, a design so tight that it was impossible to reproduce on an assembly line.

At the time, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari had only given them $600 (instead of the actual $5000) and that Wozniak's share was thus $300 ."

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs left his body (age 56) during Zukra-Shani after a siege of pancreatic cancer. Chandra-Meena * Chandra in classroom-6 . Shani-1 placed Mr. Jobs in a peak period of public visibility and fame for his barrier-breaking commercial announcements and designs (Zukra-Rahu-3). His fleshdeath was reported and evaluated in the international news for months (Shani drishti into 3- messaging, rules 5-fame).

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Ketu-9 yuti ruler-of-3-6 Guru-9 Mithunaya * vague, conceptual, philosophical, unclear, inaccurate, information about father, religious doctrine, international view. Apathetic toward orthodoxy.
