BPL commentary:

For Mula nativities, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, cutters, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Al-Shaula

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

Macedon-King o-Megos 356-323 BCE Alexander-III * in the year 327 BCE (his age 28) married 16-year-old Roxana * Raoxshna * daughter of a Bactrian Persian officer. Alexander's 7th-from-Chandra-11 being Mesha, his powerfully bright Surya-Simha-9 yuti Zukra would suggest a charming and politically intelligent mate, and also children. Raoxshna produced Alexander's only heir. However ruler of his 7th-from-Chandra Surya-yuti-Ketu is influenced by Ketu, indicating a degree of dispassion (Ketu) toward the relationship.

Alexander was a bisexual man (which was not controversial in his times). He was provided with a harem of women as expected for a divine-king in his era. Yet despite the number of women available from his age 16-32 (including two additional political marriages) Alexander produced only one child * Zukra-yuti-Ketu further suggests dispassion toward women in general. His primary love relationship was a deep bond with his bodyguard and second-in-command, Hephaestion.
