BPL commentary: For Azlesa nativities, the condition of Budha considerably affects the outcome

"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

Surya * pitrikaraka

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

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)

uttama-Mangala in 2ndh navamsha = powerful lineage

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha rules the 10th navamsha and Budha rules karakamsha-3 announcements, reports, entourage

His Majesty regularly traveled in a large group of friends. His entourage would book an entire hotel-casino for days of gambling and feasting parties. .

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. His innovative, electrified, popular radio announcements were an Azlesa-Budha-ruled style of adventure but Budha-8 ensures that this success is short-lived.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru drishti into 5-7-9 expands royalty, marriage, fortune

rogesha Guru occupies Karkata radical lagna, suggesting disease condition related to sweet foods and liquors along with sexually transmitted illnesses

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

three daughters. publicly recorded insults to her caused her to retreat in disgrace.

According to Wikipedia, in 1952 "Farouk fled Egypt in great haste, and his abandoned possessions—including a huge collection of pornography—became objects of curiosity and ridicule".

addictive personality. wildly exorbitant gambling parties, entire casinos filled with his friends (11) huge meals, decadence (Zukra) on a massive scale (lagnesha uttama Guru)

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

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani drishti into 4-8-11

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

  • Rahu in bhava-4 * glamorous cultural roots; seeks ownership of lands, building, farms, vehicles
  • Rahu-Thula * mask of fair contracts

Rahu drishti into 8-10-12
