Surya-7 father purportedly a local postmaster but dad was also a secret agent for the American OSS (pre-CIA) * Surya ruler of 10 in 10th-from-10th reveals that dad was much more than the local postmaster.

Career in entertainment arts and fine arts
Arudha lagna = bhava-10 ruled by Simha-7 (entertainment arts) karmesha-10 Surya-7 suggests a famous career. When Hopper outgrew dramatic acting, he matured professional into a director and producer remaining well-known within the cinema industry. He was rarely out of work, despite catastrophic (8) challenges with drug addiction and marriage squabbles.
Mangala-7 parivartamsha Zukra-6 * known for marriages but also for * divorces, addictions, adversarial relationships with cinematic directors
Like many financially privileged men, Hopper was in a position to remarry increasingly younger women. Budha-7 may signify a revolving-door of changing identity narratives suggesting immaturity (Budha) of delayed development and remarrying regularly to obtain "newer models" of the wifely companion.
Typical of many addicts, Hopper remained emotionally stagnant at the age when he became addicted. Budha-7 yuti Mangala suggests that each "newly matched" wife was younger and younger in order to pair with him who was (due to the addiction) not able to mature past his early 20's.

Hopper was famously married five times. Hoppers married life was characterized by a series of criticizing, accusing divorces. After a period of infatuation, he seemed to perceive each of his five spouses as a predatory thief (6) in wifely disguise (7).
Bhava-7 hosts the extraordinarily creative energies of Mangala-Surya-Budha-7 and Bhava-7 receives the penetrating, transformative optimism of Guru-Vrischika-1
Marriage issues + rogesha-6 Mangala in 7 along with randhresha-8 Budha in 7 suggests many arguments and undisclosed activities.
Marriage animosities particularly vindictive toward each of his five wives
Hopper filed for divorce from his fifth wife and the mother of his youngest child during the final months of his life, even knowing that he was suffering an untreatable stage of terminal cancer and would soon be dead. Awareness of his impending death did not reduce the virulence of his animosity toward the spouse nor the verbosity (Budha) and aggressiveness (Mangala) of his self-elevating accusations of abuse (6th from Rahu) toward her.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Professor Rahu gives effect of Guru-1-Vrizchika drama (5) and treasuries (2). Hopper seemed obsessed (Rahu) and deeply identified (Guru-1) with his treasures. He designed complex legal contracts that would prevent his wives whether ex- or present from getting an unfair share of his loot. (rogesha-6 parivartamsha yuvatipathi-7 in 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu)
Career = Iconic Rebel
Rahu in Mula in 10th-from-Chandra indicates a salient career in matters of face, voice, speech patterns, eyes, history, languages. Mula gives the "rebel without a cause" persona
Marriage 6th-from-Rahu * five marriages
6th from Rahu = bhava-7 marriage. Surya-yuti-Budha + Mangala in 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu . Rahu amplifies His ruler Guru-1-Vrischika. A confident and brilliant personality with some very challenging marriage situations.
The primary complaint in all of his marriage has apparently been spousal entitlement to share his valuable collections (Rahu-2) such as his paintings and financial assets driven by a subconscious expectation (12th from Ketu) of being robbed by the spouse.
Hopper famously married and acrimoniously divorced five times. He struggled publically with recurring narrative (Budha) of inability to trust that his spouses were properly handling the shared wealth of the marital union. Toward the end of his life, as his wealth grew, so did his chronic and gnawing mistrust of the values-equity in his marriages (Zukra-wealth in 6-distrust).
He hired lawyers and filed criminal complaints (6) against his spouses until the day of his death. All five of his wives outlived him.
Naturally, if challenging graha should occupy or own the bhava which is 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu, the negative results can be intensified. Particularly inner graha * Surya, Chandra, Budha, Zukra * are afflicted when they occupy the adversarial 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu.
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
