Rising Nakshatra



  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 93.

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

Arudra females are often the 'diva' type: mentally focused and sensuously fascinating (Rahu) but demanding.

"A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...

Her disagreeable disposition,

coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,

  • makes it difficult for other people to tolerate her.

Although she is extremely clever in her conversation

and many people will be impressed by her speech,

  • while still disliking her.

She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,

  • but on herself rather than on others,

  • although at times she will be grudgingly generous
  • to those with whom she comes in contact.

She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

  • as there is a tendency towards tuberculosis."

If she cares to adopt some public career,

  • she will become very well known ."

Salient features of the nativity

Sophia Loren in 1957, year of her marriage to Carlo Ponti, her age 23

Rahu-ruled Arudra displays the animal intensity of the storm. Arudra women often are blessed with the capacity to regenerate their physical vitality and recreate their persona.

Sophia's fashion-model height of 5'8" was a dramatic contrast to her husband's relatively shorter status. She presented a voluptuous figure that was tall for the era and especially remarkable for a birth in the malnourished poverty classes, due to potent Guru drishti.

Surya * pitrikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka

Many of her roles have a mother-daughter element, reflecting her aspiring-actress mother's influence (Chandra-11 drishti of Zukra-Simha). Her marriage partner qualities are indicated by 7th-from-Chandra-9 containing the Simha-Zukra, showing the husband to be a successful figure in cinema, politics, fashion and beauty.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Mangala-yuti-Ketu in Karkata-2 * kutumbha bhava family. She was born into poverty and illegitimacy and raised in a time of war.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha-Kanya * uttama * Bhadra Yoga

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Her Rahu mahadasha ran from age 2 until age 20. She was 15 and Carlo Ponti was 37 during her Rahu-Zukra period in 1950, when they first met in the year 1950, as her career received a strong start in the bhukti of Zukra ruler of 10th navamsha. The romance and marriage narrative of Sophia Loren and cinematic producer Carlo Ponti was a staple of celebrity press for decades.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Naturally her marriage would be complex and taboo-challenging. The ruler of her navamsha Shani - containing the career-driving uttama-Mangala - is in a complex placement of Shani-yuti-Rahu-Makara -8 exchanging drishti with nichha-Kuja-2. This yoga produces persistence against all challenges from the social order. It predicts success by endurance.

Since Mr. Ponti was previously married and the laws (Shani) of the nation of Italy did not permit legal divorce in those days, they risked prosecution for bigamy and the marriage was annulled. While their careers both flourished in the cinematic arts, Ms. Loren was promoted as a scandalous vixen and subject of "tabloid fodder" for many years.

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Rahu-ruled Arudra displays the animal intensity of the storm. Arudra women often are blessed with the capacity to regenerate their physical vitality and recreate their persona.Rahu-ruled Arudra lagna, sensually-featured and strong-boned, benefits from her Shani-yuti-Rahu style. Her striking appearance was accompanied by a variety of entertainment talents (Guru-5 many entertainments) including a capable singing voice and intelligence for 'earthy' roles. Uttama-Budha indicates a sharp and discriminating mentality.
