Revati * Pashu

BPL commentary:

For Revatika nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Pashu is delicately attuned to the signals of the animal kingdom.

Siblings, bandmates, team-mates, neighbors, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, merchants, reporters, writers, scripts, and texts -- and beasts of every description - may be especially influential.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity



Beatle John Lennon with his first wife Cynthia Lennon in 1960 (his age 20)

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka



Lennon's father was a merchant seaman (Surya-Kanya-7 occupies 4th-from-4th shipping) He worked as a shipboard laborer (Kanya-7 service in transportation) for most of his adult life. Father associated with a great diversity (Rahu) of persons of many backgrounds but generally all his associates were members of the service class Surya-yuti-Rahu Kanya and Surya rules-6.

Surya-7 indicating paternal identity with contracts and world travel (7)

Rulers of 1, 4, 9, and Rahu the Amplifier occupy bhava-7 relationships

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka


Chandra receives incoming drishti from both Rahu-Kanya-7 and from Shani-nichha-2. Lennon's mother Julia Lennon was accounted as a friendly (11) person. She came under pressure of raising her children from various fathers, service work (Kanya drishti) in various bars and restaurants, and perhaps an underlying mental health condition which could be indicated by the harsh drishti incoming to the soothing, routine-seeking Chandra-11 via both Shani and Rahu. She was killed (her age 44) by a constable who claimed he was not responsible because he was an inexperienced driver (see bhava-7 Kanya irregular argumentation). He was fully acquitted; young Lennon (age 15) reckoned his mother's death as the definitive trauma of his life.

Marriage * 7th-from-Chandra-11

John Lennon was married twice, in addition to a significant extramarital union.

7th-from-Chandra-11 = Karkata, and the ruler of 7th-from-Chandra is Chandra. The first marriage partner would be a culturally familiar personality with a parental orientation. (They married to accommodate her pregnancy.) suggesting that although The first marriage would have been emotionally authentic yet also rather emotionally self-reflexive due to matrikaraka Chandra.

The second marriage partner is qualitatively different. 2nd-from-Chandra = Kumbha-12. Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono matches 12. Partner-2 = concerned with the private bedrooms (famed Spring-1969 Bed-In conducted in hotels) and hailing from a foreign land (Japan) relative to the native's English birth.

The social-cultural features of the public facade of marriage can be seen via bhava-7 (first alliance) and bhava-2 (second alliance). Mangala-Kanya yuti Rahu-Kanya yuti Surya-Kanya in bhava-7 suggest a highly complex first marriage afflicted by Surya rogesha in 7 along with Budha yuvatipathi in 8, as well as a combust mangala-7 and the general boundary-challenging behaviors of Rahu-7.

The public facade of the second marriage is characterized by Shani-Meza * nichha yuti lagnesha Guru, Lennon was more deeply identified socially with the second marriage although emotionally the second life-partner would be somewhat dreamlike and blaming due to 12 ruler nichha-Shani.


Typically in a husband-figure nativity, when Zukra has no companion graha there is only one marriage. However Zukra joins Surya in navamsha showing the intention (navamsha reveals the underlying expectations).

Zukra located 8th-from-Chandra suggests that women in general provide an emotionally identity-transforming influence. Upheavals and sudden, unexpected changes in marriage and peer relationships would be expected.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

ashtangata harana combust Mangala-Kanya sending amplified parashari drishti to bhava-10-1-2

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Thula * articulation of agreeable contracts
  • Budha in bhava-8 * narrative of hidden mysteries, unexpected circumstances, sudden change

Budha rules 4 and 7 Budha resides in 8

Budha-8 governs the childhood home, including the foundational schooling and mother's folk.

ruler of 4-childhood home occupies 8-constant transformation. Lennon's mother suffered mental health challenges which resulted in his being raised by a devoted-but controlling aunt. The father was a rare visitor.

Learning disabilities in childhood; left school at 14

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


lagnesha Brihaspati rules Meena radical lagna

Rulers of 1, 11, 12, and 10, receiving drishti of Rahu-7. A complex and often aggrieved (nichha-Shani) pattern of speech and song.

The second wife Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono (2) was a also a very complex public figure (lagnesh Guru rules 10).

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

randhresha-8 = Zukra in bhava-6 * sarala yoga * hidden power from pleasurable service;

Zukra rules-3/8 for the Meena nativity, and Meena typically experience sudden unexpected challenges from those identified with the feminine gender

Zukra located 8th-from-Chandra exacerbates the prognosis regarding women. Lennon describes his boyhood as supported by five women, consisting of his mother and her sisters who all lived nearby. His young mother remained close but she had several children and she surrendered John into the nearby home of a childless aunt.

sarala yoga is protective against the dangers of disagreements, drugs and divorce, so that the potentially severe consequences both medical and legal of Lennon's extreme self-medication patterns did not harm him but were rather experiences as forces of identity transformation

Despite the multitude of talented partners, Shukra-6 indicates disagreement in matters of romance, creativity, music, finance, and terms of agreement. Shukra-6 usually indicates an attraction to women who are in some way identified with the victim narrative. The cluster of Kanya graha in bhava-7 adds several layers of intrigue to Lennon's relationship patterns.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani generates a powerful dhanayoga = ruler of 11 occupies 2, and vriddhipathi-Shani yuti lagnesha-Guru

Nichha Shani-2 is ruled by Kuja in 6th-from-Shani.

Nichha-Shani-2 would normally be an indicator of a highly dysfunctional family. Lennon's family history seems to exemplify the textbook definition of dysfunctionality, including children not being told of their various parents' deaths, a highly controlling maternal aunt, and family-members paying each other small monies for services (although this odd type of contractual exchange is mainly attributable to the Surya-Mangala-Rahu in Kanya-7 which indicates unusual contracts).

Childhood challenges included learning disabilities (Shani-Mesha drishti to Chandra- 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 rules Shani and Kuja drishti to nichha-Shani-2.

Challenges in the family of origin (2) and indeed in the brain itself due to nichha-Shani but there are many compensations due to lagnesha-Guru-2. Although Lennon developed behavior problems, the primary-parenting aunt and uncle provided physical security for him until their deaths and wholeheartedly supported his musical education even when he was disruptive and difficult.

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

shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle from Shani-Meza-2 toward the Kanya-7 cluster indicating partnerships

Complex and conflicted partnerships

Lennon was much influenced by his many partners. The public record documents an intimate friendship with Brian Epstein the manager of the Beatles who arranged their early performance successes. Partner-songwriter Silly Love Songs 1942- Beatle Paul McCartney is acknowledged to have partially shaped Lennon's world. Partner-songwriter and financial manager Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono is another documented identity-defining ally.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

The core identity of personalities which choose to be born with Ketu-1 is often defined by themes of surrender, abandonment, amputation, disconnection, and apathy. One may live in the certainty that, regardless of the opinion of others, one has been abandoned.

BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of pitrikaraka Professor Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians celebrities, dramatists, game-players, and persons of brilliant entitlement are especially influential.
