  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

BPL commentary: For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of Surya considerably affects the outcome

BPL commentary: although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

Father was a merchant seaman (Surya-Kanya-4) and shipboard worker (Kanya-4 service in transportation) for most of his working life. Father associated with a great diversity of persons of many backgrounds but generally all his associates were members of the service class Surya-yuti-Rahu Kanya.

Surya = lagnesha in 2 indicating identity with singing, speaking, face, mouth * add to this song-pattern, Budha ruler of 2 located in 2nd-from-2nd, totaling a dynamic pattern of singing, speech, song, and songwriting for publication. Rulers of 1, 4, 9, and Rahu the Amplifier occupy bhava-2 and the second wife (2) was a skilled financial accountant. Treasury via song.

Chandra * matrikaraka

Lennon's mother suffered mental health challenges which resulted in his being raised by a devoted aunt; the mother came and went. The father was a rare visitor.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

combust Mangala-Kanya sending amplified drishti to bhava-5-8-9

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha rules 2-1 located in 3, treasury from Songwriting and Singing

profit and contained treasure from literary song-writing

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra karmesha resides in lagna = poet, musician; high-visibility generational counter-culture icon

Zukra rules-3 = song-writer;


John Lennon was married twice, in addition to one significant extramarital union. Mangala-Kanya * Rahu-Kanya yuti Surya-Kanya in bhava-2 suggest a highly complex and dramatic second marriage (compare to a similar configuration signaling a dramatic second marriage for Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt ).

Simha lagna containing Zukra located 8th-from-Chandra = women provide an emotionally identity-transforming influence. Upheavals and sudden, unexpected changes in marriage and peer relationships.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani-Meza * nichha

Shani in Bhava-9


Nichha Shani-9 is ruled by Kuja in 6th-from-Shani. Learning disabilities in childhood; left school at 14

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

shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle from Shani-Meza toward the Kanya cluster in bandhu-bhava-4 childhood home-schooling-lifebase *

2= unique singing performances

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Childhood * a complex family lineage

Mangala-Kanya * Rahu-Kanya yuti Surya-Kanya in kutumbha-bhava-2

produces a complex situation in the childhood home, including the foundational schooling and mother's folk.

John Lennon's father abandoned John and his mother, then John Lennon's mother Julia suffered mental illness and left the boy with doting relatives. Lennon describes his boyhood as supported by five women, consisting of his mother and her sisters who all lived nearby. The young mother remained close but she gave John to a childless aunt. His actual home was with this maternal aunt. Mother's elder sister = 11th-from-Chandra = bhava-4 the home.

Childhood challenges included learning disabilities (Shani-Mesha drishti to Chandra-6 inter alia), school truancy, and regular outbursts of frustrated, sexualized anger resulting in spousal battery. Lennon famously admitted "I was a hitter. " (combust accusing Mangala-Kanya + Rahu)

Also Chandra L-12 (mother, home) shows the social invisibility of the mother's protective arrangements for others to raise her son. Camouflaged from public awareness, Lennon's childhood home looked normal from the outside.

Challenges in the family of origin and indeed in the brain itself due to nichha-Shani but there are many compensations.. Although Lennon developed behavior problems, the parenting aunt and uncle loved him until their deaths and wholeheartedly supported his musical education even when he was disruptive and difficult.

  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

BPL commentary: For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of Surya considerably affects the outcome

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."
