Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poetic romantics, and game-players may be especially influential.

Prominent features of the nativity
Ted Kennedy's father was the Boston financier Joseph Kennedy. Graha yuti-Surya show the complexity of the father's personality and social position.
His father was a top executive and governance figure who operated and invested in numerous companies, served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (Kumbha) and US Ambassador to UK.
Teddy Kennedy's mother Chandra-Simha Mrs. Rose Kennedy was a political figure (Simha) in her local area of Boston, Massachusetts (Chandra-4). She was the mother of three prominent American national-level politicians: Teddy, US Attorney-general Bobby Kennedy (assassinated) and most famously the elder brother POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy .
Lifepartner-1 serves to uphold the public reputation. First marriage is complex due to 10 contains Surya + asta-Kuja + Budha, while karmesha Shani-9 tends to drain the vigor from 10 due to overemphasis on orthodoxy and conventional expectations. Lifepartner-2 = Ketu-5. Disconnected due to age (partner-2 = 22 years younger than native) but assisted by helpful Budha rules 2-5. Budha-10 rules 10th-from-5 (dignified 2nd marriage) The second union was reckoned to have restored his long-faltering public reputation, and returned his governance productivity following decades of distraction.
Ashtangata Mangala-10 within 4 degree of Surya-Kumbha-10
Kennedy's lifelong political career was weakened by Ashta Mangala but strengthened by the drishti of political Chandra-Simha. The public (10) perceived TK as a symbol (10, roles) of economic connectivity (Kumbha) and increased social participation (Kumbha) for the masses and the classes (Kumbha). Kumbha social participation, linkage, networks. Without politicizing Chandra drishti from his mother, he likely would have excelled in executive, regulatory roles within economic or scientific environments. However Chandra injects a ray of foundational political feeling from his mother.
Atmakaraka = nichha-D9 = uttama D1= Guru-3 * generosity, charity, expansion, permission; but nichha-Guru in navamsha-11 shows overconfidence in friendships
uttama-Guru rules the 10th navamsha
Uttama-Guru-3 grants a blessing of collegiality and benevolence in matters of 3 such as committee work, commerce, communications, media-messaging, meetings and memoranda, and particularly the sibling-cousin cohort.
uttama Guru casts drishti into
Zukra -11 * Champion of social participation in economic systems, access to healthcare and education, integration of marginalized populations
Zukra-uttama-lagnesha rules Vrishabha radical lagna =10th-from-Chandra
lagnesha Zukra from Vrishabha
Zukra from Simha-Chandra-4
Zukra-yuti-Rahu ruling 10th-from-Chandra suggests a remarkable career in matters of bhava-11 = community linkage, social participation projects, economic justice, arts and music, but also excessive (Rahu) ambition regarding women, beauty, and liquors
At the time of 2009 decease, TK's was an HNWI with net worth estimated at more than $150million_USD.
TK's Zukra = lagnesha-rogesha. Two feminine-figure marriage partners
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
sober but celebrity-political in nature, the governing, orderly, Shani-9 creates regulatory patterns throughout the nativity:
Shani-9 maintains the old paradigms of belief in principle, law, order
His Kumbha-10 is ruled by Shani-9 which overemphasizes doctrine and drains the reputation. 7th-from-Chandra-4 = Kumbha-10 shows that the first marriage partner is also afflicted by Shani in 12th-from-10th, suggesting isolation and seclusion into a Shani-controlled presentation of conventionalism and orthodoxy.
Bhava-9 Makara arudha lagna also indicates the public perception that he was a patriarchal figure, working from humanistic philosophical principles; whatever his personal failings, the social guidance and advocacy provided by Kennedy was valued highly in his society.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Rahu-Rahu swabhukti = Chappaquiddick scandal
8th-from-Chandra = catastrophic (8), nearly career-annihilating event. Kennedy was driving a car with a young woman staff-member passenger. Coming home after a party, the car plunged off a bridge, into a dark river. The woman drowned. Senator Kennedy swam to safety. Despite the fact that he did not notify the police until ten hours after the fatal accident, he escaped all criminal consequences.
Teddy Kennedy was famously accused but not convicted in the automobile crash and drowning death of his campaign staff worker. Despite being the driver of the car, and not having attempted whatsoever to rescue her, he claimed to be fully innocent in his actions. He seemed (to the public) permanently unconcerned with impact of this violent event upon the woman and her family.
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu's ruler Budha-Kumbha-10 occupies 6th-from-Ketu
All of Ted Kennedy's three children suffered from the disease of cancer. His eldest child Kara (1960-2011) developed lung cancer. In early childhood, Edward Kennedy Jr. (b. 1961) had his leg amputated (Ketu) due to bone cancer. In 1988, Patrick Kennedy (b. 1967) had a tumor removed near his spine.
Political Elections 5
With no previous experience, young Ted Kennedy ran (was told by his father to run) for the Senate seat that had been held by his elder brother POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy.
Hailing from an elite political family, he won the first election handily, with little campaign effort. The decades rolled onward and his personal behavior caused considerable negative publicity. Yet, TK said that he did not care about politics, and would only stay as long as the electorate wanted him to serve. His disregard (Ketu) for conventional conduct was obvious. Nevertheless, the seat remained his through a lifetime cycle of elections every six years (US Senate term) until his decease age 77, totaling 47 years in the Senate.
