BPL commentary:

For Bharani natives, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

Guidance by instructors from the civilizations of Apis.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 79

"A very vital character,

  • a quality which quite often leads this individual into all sorts of trouble

  • because other people are apt to be jealous, resentful and antagonistic to him.

The morals of this man are not above reproach .

He will be distinguished in many cases by some slight physical defect

  • on the lower part of the body,

  • that is below the waist."

Distinctive features of the Nativity


al-Assad April-2017 (age 52)

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha in bhava-5 rules 7th-from-Chandra, suggesting that at least initially, Al-Assad's first wife would be a person of celebrity charm and media savvy (Budha rules 3 residing in 3rd-from-3rd supporting all types of media, propaganda, advertising, and announcements).

The initial results for Chandra-12 marriage typically produce a deeply service-oriented spouse who may identify strongly with the disenfranchised classes at least partially because she is disenfranchised within the marriage. Meanwhole, in this case, Surya-yuti-Budha in Simha-5 also indicates a regal, fashionable, courtly lifestyle with celebrity qualities. However the eventual results of lifepartner for Chandra-12 are expected to reveal either illness of the spouse or considerable disagreement.

Zukra-yuti-Kuja while Zukra occupies a nakshatra of Kuja could suggest (does not confirm, but does suggest) a homosexual orientation for this husband; two unions are predicted, and naturally this adds complexity to both partnerships.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru occupies the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra = an agent of stability

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

very strong cluster in navamsha Vrischika-1 could be a career in emergency medicine or a career in military carnage

Karakamsha * bhava-8 Vrizchika emergencies

Arudha lagna = bhava-10 leadership
