QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Vimala Yoga Chandra-8 rules 12

Henry was married to Catherine of Aragon for 24 years. His marital drama of divorces, annulments, and beheadings did not begin until the onset of the volatile Mahadasha of Chandra-8 .

Ketu in Rohini is ruled by Chandra-8 and Ketu occupies less than one degree of distance from Zukra. In turn, Chandra rules bhava-12. A highly protective Vimala Yoga ensures that Henry would never become the victim of his own dangerous intrigues. (He was however the victim of his own appetites - see Shani-6).

Chandra-8 needs to be emotional engaged with secrets, intrigue, danger, upheaval. These were the daily fare of Henry's life and yet he was ever protected; unlike the average courtier who was likely as not to be murdered, he himself killed many but he died of disease

Chandra in Revatika * Henry was an accomplished singer of Renaissance music and a distinguished musician (Revati). His lute playing skill was admired. He arranged to have the best musicians of western Europe brought to his palaces for providing courtly entertainments and for the instruction of English performing artists.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation; thrust toward service, push toward unfairness
  • Mangala in bhava-2 * drive toward values lineage, pursuit of treasuries, energized face-speech-song,aggressivecapitalization-banking, storage, assets, conservation, acquisitive conquests

Kanya-Kuja-2 ruled by Budha-12 suggests persistent arguments and procedural conflict in regard to the continuation of the genetic lineage. Henry was notoriously aggressive in pursuit of a male heir to legitimize his family's claim to hold the royal entitlement.

Kuja in 7th-from-Chandra-8 indicates that although Henry was by all accounts happily married to Catherine of Aragon for 20 years (and unhappily for another 4 years after Zukra mahadasha ended) the issue of issue became the breaker for marriage-1.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha in bhava-12 * narrative of sanctuary, quietude, spiritual guidance, distant worlds
  • Budha-Karkata * comfortable communications, articulation of root culture, customs, security

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Mithunaya * much communication, many merchants, conversations about belief, doctrine of inclusive messaging, expansive evangelism
  • Guru in bhava-11 * many friends, much networking, numerous revenues, many goals
  • Guru-yuti-Surya pitri-karaka * multiple father-figures, abundant confidence, much radiance

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Malavaya Yoga

  • Zukra-Vrizabha * swakshetra * aesthetic of values preservation, sounds, history, containment of goods
  • Zukra-10 * regulated, lawful, socially iconic harmony
  • Zukra-yuti-Ketu * gracious dissolution, dispersed beauty, sweet surrender, empty negotiated unions

Zukra-yuti-Ketu * 1 deg orb in Rohini (beheading wives)

karmesha-10 = Zukra in bhava-10 pleasures and treasures; wine, women and song

Beheading of wives. Music. Marriage. Money.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu indicates a chronic dissatisfaction with women and ever-ready to dissolve previous agreements or break alliances (particularly marriage contracts).

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani in Bhava-6 * must serve the problematic * advantageous placement for outlasting one's enemies; cautious, conventional crimes; chronic illness and injury
  • Shani-Makara-Draco * old hierarchies, pressured duty, old rules, pressured knees, imposed laws, must govern with scarce resources

Lifelong endurance of chronic illnesses and never-ending enemies.

Marriage challenges: yuvatipathi-7 = Shani in bhava-6 * chronic problems, endures animosity.

Henry's first wife Catherine of Aragon was his elder brother's widow. She was five years elder to him, often ill and usually unhappy. They were married for 24 years due to Shani's powers of endurance and the social fact that divorce in those days was forbidden by law (Shani).

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

  • Rahu-Vrizchika * mask of undisclosed mysterious power
  • Rahu in bhava-4 * privilege via glamorous or unusual cultural roots; seeks amplified ownership of properties, lands and vehicles, building, farms, vehicles; seeks a special, important role in real-estate and land use entitlements. Opportunistic, ambitious parents.

Henry was wildly ambitious for acquiring properties (4). Seeing opportunity (Rahu) he launched a swift offensive against the widespread and wealthy monasteries. Henry quickly appropriated the vast deeded lands of the Church, including the essential food-producing farmlands attached to monasteries, and transformed those tracts into royal property. According to the Church authorities, Henry's ambition to usurp power via surreptitious means was illicit.

However Mangala ruler of Rahu occupies 11th from Rahu. The gambit was successful. His re-possession campaign hugely enriched the coffers of the King. The land-grab also dis-established (4) the foreign Roman church authority and re-established (4) England's food-source independence for the next 500 years.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Vrizabha * incomplete acquisition, empty values , dissolute treasury
  • Ketu in classroom-10 * disregards social order * no barriers in class-pyramid, absent from authority, vacuous leadership roles
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * surrendered arrangements, empty promises, unsustainable contracts, unlimited music

1 degree of separation in Rohini = Zukra-yuti-Ketu

indicates an ongoing, unresolvable dissatisfaction with women an contracts. Ever-ready to break promises, dissolve previously negotiated agreements, or break alliances particularly marriage matches.
