  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86

BPL commentary:

For Purva-azadha natives, tthe condition of sweet Professor Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, artistic beauty, treasuries, and music, may be especially influential.

"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .

One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.

  • Stupid, yet ostentatious and vulgar ,

  • with very few educational advantages.

Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.

  • While he must, because of educational handicaps,

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

  • but ineffectual if put in authority ."

Distinctive features of the Nativity


George Harrison as a young boy

Surya * pitrikaraka

Father was a public bus conductor and onboard ticket-seller * Surya-yuti-Ketu-Kumbha-3 suggests that the father's environment was somewhat ungrounded (Ketu, dispersion) and involved working with the masses and the classes Kumbha.

Surya ruled by Shani occupies ensemble-cohort bhava-3. The Beatles musical quartet formed in 1960 during Harrison's Guru-Shani period Shani rules Kumbha-3, his age 16. At 16 he withdrew from school (Shani rules 12th-from-4th) becoming temporarily an apprentice electrician. Kumbha electricity.

Surya-Kumbha yuti Ketu-Kumbha

Surya-3 * father bus conductor and ship steward Surya-yuti-Ketu accepting incoming drishti of Guru = strong philosophical orientation . Surya-3 yuti Ketu yields a modest, working-class social identity for the father. Mr. Harrison's father worked as a ship's steward then later as a bus conductor; his mother was an aficionada of musical performances who worked as a shop clerk.

Although a good student he quit school in order to play guitar in a musical band with his friends dharmapathi-Surya-3 shows the importance of the cohort.

Egalitarian, ego-decentralizing Surya-yuti-Ketu also indicates the reluctance to accept adulation of audiences who might have wanted to adore him. Harrison was a super-celebrity within the western musical counterculture due to Rahu-Simha-9, but his avowed identity in the final decades of life was "gardener".

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

prefers to withdraw emotionally. First marriage suffers disagreement. Second marriage easier. see second marriage for Chandra in bhava-11

Chandra-11 's ruler is uttama-Zukra. George's mother bought his first guitar. Chandra = Krishnaya.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Karakamsha = Dhanusha bhava-1 containing artistic performance mantrapathi-5 Mangala. Kuja accepts drishti from both Guru and Rahu.

Unfortunately Mangala drishti to bhava-4 also indicates the home invasion break-in pattern that afflicted his personal security (4) .

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

yuvatipathi-7 + 10 * karmapathi in 2 suggests a career in values, which can include finance, music, voice, face, and genetic history

music (2) and handcraft (Budha) * Budha-2

George Harrison was a manual gifted instrumental musician. The instruments he is said to have played successfully include: Guitar, Sitar, Violin, Organ, Piano, Harmonica, Xylophone, a number of international types of drums including Tabla and Tamboura, Ukulele, Mandolin, and Marimba.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Brihaspati casts drishti upon both Chandra-11, Mangala-1, and Surya-3, expanding friendship networks, fans, the personality-1, and the ensemble-cohort (Beatles). Also Guru drishti to Dhanushya-1 Karakamsha containing atmakaraka Mangala ruler of both 5 (artistic performance) and 12 (meditation, imagination. distant lands).

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Sweets-seeking Shukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also)

Zukra-ruled Purva-Azadha lagna

Harrison's Zukra enjoys uttama-amsha, suggesting his exceptional musical talent

Singer-Songwriter and Media Producer * Beatle and Vaishnava George Harrison developed a legendary career in popular music and cinema.

rogesha-6 uttama-Zukra-4= highly gifted in art and performance music, devotional singing in maturity due to Shani ruled by uttama-Zukra

addictions Zukra rogesha-6 and Zukra resides in 6th-from-Chandra

Zukra-Meena-4 receives drishti of Kuja-1 karakamsha. Commitment to local environmentalism, gardening, and maintaining a stable of vehicles. Harrison was a driver (Kuja drishti to 4) and collector of expensive, exquisitely designed racing cars. He owned fleets of these costly vehicles, and enjoyed much pleasure through them.

Zukra-4 * dig-bala * Malavaya Yoga * Harrison famously loved his gardens. He supervised the careful management of 36 acres of garden, employing ten gardeners. He also loved exquisite and expensive racing cars, collecting photographs of celebrity racing drivers since early youth. His car garages were extensive.

Zukra-Meena * uttama in 6th-from-Chandra indicates emotionally motivated addictions. Inter alia, Harrison was a chain-smoker of cigarettes. With a family genetic predisposition to the cancerous tumors, Harrison's addiction to smoking may have hastened his departure from this earthly vale.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Born into a Shani bhukti Shani-6, Harrison's early childhood circumstances were modest (outdoor plumbing) Ruler of bhava-2 family and voice and bhava-3 commercial projects, Shani-6 = obligation to maintain disagreements (especially about money) along with ailments, betrayals, and accusations.

Although his first youthful marriage suffered promiscuity and betrayal (see 7th-from-Chandra-11) he remained legally contracted into the marriage-1 for 11 years, exhibiting the power of Shani to attempt to prevent a divorce or at least delay the contract-breaking.

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


Rahu-Simha-9 located in 3rd-from Guru-Mithunaya-7 communications, messages, song-writing lyrics.

During 1970-1971, Harrison's the song "My Sweet Lord" reached number-one on global Anglosphere sales charts. In typical Rahu fashion, this devotional paean to Lord Krishna previously contextualized in the religious culture of India-Nepal crossed boundaries into the Judeo-Christian and fascinated (Rahu) the western audience. * Guru-Rahu period * Rahu-9 Simha

During his Guru-Rahu period 1970-71, Harrison's hugely successful musical recording "My Sweet Lord" introduced the bhakti devotion of Krishna Culture to millions of youthful western listeners. Professor Rahu-Simha-9 becomes a celebrity (Simha) cultural mix-master.

Rahu's ruler Surya-yuti-Ketu in bhava-3 communications media production (music studio) not only produced the peculiarly unboundaried (Ketu-3) wall of sound bbut also an exotic ideal (Simha ideal) reaching a global audience (9).

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu in classroom-3 * disregards messaging boundaries, absent from discussions
  • Ketu-Kumbha * incomplete economy, empty profits, dissolute systems
  • Surya-yuti-Ketu * surrendered centrality, empty genius, unlimited intelligence

Harrison was a lifetime chain-smoker of tobacco and marijuana. He died of lung cancer which had metastasized to the brain. Also dissolving ruler-of-12 Mangala in 3rd-from-Chandra
