BPL commentary:

For Azvini nativities, the condition of limitless Professor Ketu considerably affects the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Guidance from Mezarthim.

"... a happy carefree disposition,

  • very intelligent,

  • in fact a rather above average person in this respect.

He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that

  • he will seldom have to worry about money matters.

In spite of his ability to achieve success,

  • he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements."

JFK's father was originally a working-class son of Irish immigrants to USA. The father's life exemplified extraordinary financial success via seen-and-unseen devices. The father's capital wealth emerged mainly from investment in the port of Boston's shipping infrastructure. During Prohibition, bootlegged liquors (Zukra sweets, alcoholic drinks) were a central commodity shipped through the transport systems of USA water ports.

Pitrikaraka Surya co-tenants with Vrishabha-Guru + Zukra. From Mesha lagna, swakshetra Zukra becomes the negotiating, wealth-accumulating ruler of 2-7 suggesting the financial contract. Guru rules 8-11, indicating a degree of secrecy (8) in the economic success (11).
