BPL commentary

For Azlesa nativities, the condition of conversational, commercial, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, businesslike 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.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"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."

BPL comment Azlesa

Mr. Ponde often repeats his particular aversion to Azlesa nativities. Yet whether male or female, Azlesa "the leash" produces many of the world's great writers, poets, and lyricists.

As well, Azlesa often show mastery of Budha-type manipulative skills including verbal acuity in public speaking, literary publishing, business administration, and handcraft. When twisted under emotional (Chandra) pressure, this handiness could become Azlesa's notorious squeezing, choking, strangling, or extortion -- but rarely.

Azlesa are typically eccentric Budha-ruled creatures who are tightly focused on their information (choreography, lyrics, sequencing, plots, characters) ...

This feature of their mentality does not naturally parlay into unkindness or uncleanness ... only a rather grumpy intolerance for people and things irrelevant to their task.]

Distinctive features of the nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka


  • Surya in bhava-7 * center of relationships, focus on agreements, brightly negotiating, confident in brokerage and trade, intelligence for equity, peer entitlements, eye on contractual relationships * sparkling center of the negotiation-drama
  • Surya-Makara-Draco * Savitra * the stimulator
  • Surya-7 parivartamsha Shani-2

Surya in bhava-7 parivartamsha Shani-2 family lineage. Surya is weakened in the final dead degree of Makara in 7th radical bhava and the 6/8 shad-ashtakya parivartamsha yoga with Surya's enemy Shani is not beneficial. It was said of Farouk that he was "a king (Surya) who behaved like a commoner (Shani)"

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka


  • Chandra-Thula * comforted by rhythmic negotiation of agreements
  • Chandra in Visaka * Radha * comforted by expansive shocks * protectors of widening energy channels, sudden growth surge, outreaching vitality

  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * Emotionally expedient, sensitive to exotic figures, needs exciting opportunities, soothed by unusual environments, feels exceptional

Chandra-yuti-Rahu + Chandra yuti Kuja (kuja dosha) presents a challenge to the first marriage because it places Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

Kuja dosha formed by Mangala drishti upon 7th-bhava and 7th-from-Chandra is amplified by Rahu . Two marriages + multiple public liaisons. His father had a similar marital experience, denoted by Mangala drishti into Surya-7.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Chandra yuti Kuja in bhava-4* a competitive (yogakaraka Kuja) race-car driver (Kuja) with a lifelong passion (Rahu) for high-speed automobiles (Chandra)

In the early years of his rule, freshly arrived from British boarding high school, Egypt-King 1920-1965 Farouk al-Awwal delighted his nation by making regular, inspiring - and unprecedented - radio addresses to the common people.

Two marriages are seen in navamsha Zukra-yuti-Budha, with Budha representing the school-aged second wife. Significant Rahu-amplified Kuja dosha upon bhava-7 and upon 7th-from-Chandra exacerbates the disconnectivity suggested by Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra
