Rogers started theatrical touring at the vulnerable age of 17; however, her mother generally travelled with her for protection. Chandra-1 strongly identified with the Mother-figure. mother was a newspaper theatre critic and journalistic writer, familiar with the ways of Hollywood and the New York drama culture, and always close with Ginger.

Ginger started performing via influence of her mom. Chandra rules 5 theatre, and 5 = 3rd-from-3rd writing filmscripts theatre critic

Ms. Rogers' long-term relationship with her mother was unbroken, and their ashes were ultimately interred together. Virginia (Ginger) Rogers was cremated and her ashes buried alongside her mother's ashes. Chandra-1 mother is the identity.

Although Rogers' earnings from entertainment performances began to dwindle in the late 1940's, the twenty-year mahadasha of Shukra vriddhipathi ruler of 11 ran from 1950 until 1970. She managed her own stock portfolio (again a very unusual action for a woman then). The long-lasting Shukra Mahadasha combined with the signature speculative-finance advantage of Chandra vidyapathi-5 in the Meena lagna ensured her financial comfort.

Guru-Thula yuti Ketu-Thula

only child of her parents, who divorced after her birth and fought over her custody.

Raised partly by maternal grandparents Ginger Rogers completed 73 films over the period of 50 years. She performed on film, live theatre, television, and radio through the Great Depression and two world wars.

An appreciative audience found in Ginger Rogers an icon of the light-hearted, unmarried "working girl". This new social identity started in US society just about when Ginger started, in the late 1920's.

She remains best known for her oft-repeated role as Fred Astaire's romantic and dancing partner in a series of hugely popular and iconic Hollywood musical films.

In 1940 Rogers won an Oscar for dramatic, as well as dancing, prowess on the theatrical stage.

Most remember Ginger Rogers as a remarkably talented, attractive, and vivacious dancer who wore a spectacular array of beautiful, flattering costumes as she played various female roles to the leading male performers of the time.

She was also however a shrewd businesswoman who successfully managed her own stock portfolio, bought and sold property, negotiated her own Hollywood contracts, and had little patience for those who lacked her lifelong passion (Rahu), discipline (Shani) and drive (Kuja).

A brightly charismatic and dynamically energized theatrical personality with Rahu + Shani-yuti-Mangala in 2-face-song while Ketu-Guru stay in 8 indicating her quick-turning cycle of marriages and divorces. She married and divorced five times. Her life-partnership pattern based in Chandra-1 suggests that the first spouse would be parental figure (7 4th-from-4th) and he was indeed a family friend of long standing. Guru-yuti-Ketu-8 accepting drishti of Rahu + Shani-yuti-Mangala suggests that expectations of the husband-role (Guru) were much weakened by incoherent Ketu and stressed by aggressive Mangala emitting from her family of origin.

The overall nativity while strong for theatre (Surya-5) is weak for interpersonal relationships, producing a multiplicity (Guru) of disoriented and bewildered (Ketu) alliances. Once her marriages were all completed, she focused on financial investments and became a financially privileged woman.
