BPL commentary:

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

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commerical agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

"Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."

Distinctive features of the nativity

Russ 1870-1924 Proletarian Revolution Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin during his regime nationalized all property and assets in Soviet Russia creating a massive collection (Vrishabha) of public wealth, yet disregarding the human instinct to possess own-wealth the bloated system generated corruption (6), starvation and crippling poverty for exploited rural workers (6).

Russ 1870-1924 Proletarian Revolution Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin remained legally married to his first life-mate Comrade Nadezhda Konstantinovna until his death age 53. However while still married-1 he is said to have conducted several important affairs du coeur. Reportedly he proposed marriage-2 to a lover Apollinariya Yakubova. She refused his offer, which according to wife-1 made him depressed and demoralized. Another long-term lover died of cholera after 10 years' romance, again without accepting his troth.

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka


Surya in the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra

Lenin's father was originally a classroom teacher of maths and physics. He followed an ambitious career trajectory into becoming inspector of primary schools in Simbirsk. He was admired as a pioneering proponent of national public education for all peoples, education for women, for rich and poor. He organized conferences for educators throughout Russian, and vigorously supported teacher-training for members of all classes and tribes.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-7 * comfort in agreement, bargaining, deal-making, contracts
  • Chandra-Makara-Draco * comforted by rhythmic hierarchical ordering
  • Chandra in Uttara-azadha * comforted by bright visions * protectors of confident conviction, brilliant philosophy, wise patronage, political doctrines
  • Somana-yuti-Ketu * Emotionally scattered, sensitive to disoriented figures, indifference, needs to wander, feels like a pilgrim


Lenin's mother, Maria Alexandrovna Blank, was a well-educated woman from St. Petersburg. She earned a teaching diploma and worked as a schoolteacher. Most of her career was devoted to at-home parenting and housekeeping. Her mother died when she was three years old, her husband died suddenly in mid-career of a brain hemorrhage, and all of her children were imprisoned and/or executed for their political activism.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership * Somana-yuti-Ketu

Lenin married only once to an ideological colleague. The first marriage was preserved for instrumental reasons (Rahu) including the masquerade required by the cult of personality built around him (Rahu-1).

  • Russ 1870-1924 Proletarian Revolution Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin * Somana-yuti-Ketu met his wife during a banishment to Siberia (Ketu) and Lenin remained married to her throughout his life. His wife held important political positions (Rahu) and accompanied him regularly at public events. However the couple often lived separately (in separate countries) or cohabited with liaisons, and produced no children.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Ruchaka Yoga

  • Mangala-Meza * moolatrikona 0-18 deg. * vigorous pursuit of championship, innovation, first-arrivals; push toward conquest
  • Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala * drive toward leadership, pursuit of social authority, invasive regulation, energized governing conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * energized confidence, dynamic genius, masculine force joins willful charm
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal

Mangala = ashtangata "ashy" within 1- degree of Surya

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Meza * innovative communications, articulation of competitive movement
  • Budha in bhava-10 * narrative of leadership, governance, decision-making, social order
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant confidence, message of willpower and charisma
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * articulation of forward action, message of innovation and forward movement, outspoken

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Dhana yoga * Guru rules 9 (11th-from-11th) + Guru occupies 11

  • Guru-Vrizabha * much treasury, many voices, many collections, historic beliefs, doctrine of values containment
  • Guru in bhava-11 * many friends, much networking, numerous revenues, many goals

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka


  • Zukra-Kumbha * appreciation of social networks, aesthetic of economic linkage
  • Zukra-8 * pleasure of occult secrets, enjoys rejuvenating, camouflaged, hidden harmony

Due to Zukra-Kumbha-8 in 2nd-from-Somana-yuti-Ketu-7, Lenin fell deeply but somewhat secretively (8) in love after marriage and remained connected to his post-marital lover for 10 years before her premature death. There was no divorce from marriage-1 and he never formally remarried. Zukra is alone with no companion graha, and Shani-6 who is a divorce-delayer is also the ruler of Ketu-7 and Shani occupies 12th-from-Ketu, further draining the energy potentials of a second marriage.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Sarala Yoga

  • Shani in Bhava-6 * must serve the problematic * advantageous placement for outlasting one's enemies; cautious, conventional crimes; chronic illness-injury syndromes
  • Shani-Dhanuzya * old doctrines, pressured beliefs, old patronage, pressured hips-sacroiliac, imposed catechism, must teach with scarce resources

From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, sober serious structured hierarchical Shani rules

  1. the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  2. the emotionally motivated information-delivering, evangelical, publishing, announcing, script-reading, reporting, conversational, process-managing communications of 3rd-from-Chandra

Decease promptly following onset of maraka Shani Mahadasha

  • "He died suddenly at 6:50 p.m. on Jan. 21, 1924, a few months before his 54th birthday. The cause of death: a massive stroke."

The stroke was preceded by several days of intensely painful seizures. Some scholars suspect that Lenin was fatally poisoned, and the poisoner is believed as the jealous, violently narcissistic, Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin "Man of Steel". Jyotisha would suggest that his sarala yoga probably protected against poisoning and the material cause of death was more like the same type of massive cerebral hemorrhage that killed Lenin's father. Note his brain swelling in photos taken during his final time.

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

  • Rahu-Karkata * mask of protective parental shelter
  • Rahu in bhava-1 * privilege via glamorous, mesmerizing, exotic, or unusual physical appearance, competitive movement, championship;; seeks social mobility via fascinating, energized physical body-form. Opportunistic, ambitious conditions of birth. Cult of personality.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Makara-Draco * incomplete hierarchy, empty rules, dissolute laws
  • Ketu in classroom-7 * absentee spouse, disregards contractual loyalties, dissolves the alliances, irrelevance of partnership
  • Chandra-yuti-Ketu * surrendered sensitivity, empty feelings, apathetic parenting

Lenin's purported true love Apollinariya Yakubova, a Communist indoctrinator and leader of the London movement.

He proposed marriage to her but she declined.
