Ms. Streep's dramatic performances are famed for their linguistic accomplishment. Her ability is much admired. She reports that her skill arises from her attention to listen carefully and then acquire pronunciation and vocabulary of personalities, accents, intonations, prosodies, and the phonological features of foreign languages. Perhaps the best-known and lauded example of this specific talent is her Polish and German language performance in Sophie's Choice.
Ms. Streep was an ascending young dramatist, engaged to marry her great love. He was fourteen years her elder. He was stricken by lung cancer. During Rahu-Guru period, he died in her care. Guru-nichha-6 unfair arrangements.
Half a year after her fiancé's fleshdeath, still during the same Rahu-Guru period in 1978, to the surprise of her friends and family, she met and quickly married a previously unknown man.
Guru rules the terribly unfair, ailing, and unbalanced bhava-6 but Guru also rules the 7th navamsha and at the time of her marriage her R-K samchara had entered Kanya-Meena which is the natal axis and the navamsha nodal axis. This sudden, unanticipated union with an artist (Zukra) has produced four children and endured for more than 40 years.
