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."

QUOTATION from Wikipedia:

" The king and most of his family (including Queen Aiswarya) were massacred at a royal dinner on 1 June 2001.

It is still unclear that who is behind the royal killings... Nepalese people believe that Gyanendra is the main suspected mastermind behind the royal palace massacre...However, according to published reports, his eldest son and heir, Dipendra (photo), was apparently the gunman, but he himself died a few days later of gunshot wounds suffered during the massacre." Birendra's younger brother, Gyanendra, (photo) became king after the murders, totaling 12 deaths. Unlike the gracious, cosmopolitan Birendra, the younger Gyanendra has an aggressive, militaristic style, and is intensely disliked. (Gyanendra was later deposed.)"

As hereditary monarch, Nepal 1945-2001 The Last Hindu King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah was raised in a household full of foreign dignitaries.

Karmesha-Mula-Zukra-yuti-Ketu -5

Birendra was generally considered a nice guy but a weak king. He was granted all traditional respect by the masses; yet his governance was considered so apathetic (Ketu) that educated observers feared impending revolutionary uprisings

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Mithunaya * old messages, old conversations, imposed instructions, proletarian descriptions, pressured hand-arm, must signal with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-11 * must connect, must earn with hard effort; cautious, conventional marketplace linkage; tense and limited mentoring, chronic pressure to produce revenues; heavy pressure against freely chosen friendships
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu* resistance against ambition, disciplined risk, constrained opportunism, irregular elders

Shani-yuti-Rahu occupies the doctrinal, ideological, believing 9th-from-Chandra. Birendra struggled throughout his kingship, his age 25 until his age 55, with the oppressive power of an entrenched elite ruling class which collected taxes from the impoverished subsistence peasantry while paying no taxes themselves. educated in the West, he espoused principles of democratic governance and economic distribution of economic assets, but he was essentially a puppet king and the old power structure overwhelmed him.

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

  • Rahu-Mithunaya *craving for conversation * mask of explanatory, evangelistic messaging; fascinated by announcements, declarations * seeks special importance via commercial transactions
  • Rahu in bhava-11 (swabhava) * the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual social goals and economic attainments; desires a special, important, linkage role in social participation and financial networks. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious friends. Thrives in culturally-mixed commodity-exchange systems. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a friend, a voluntary linker, an economic achiever, a relative of the father's people. Bhava-11 profits, revenue, connections = a highly successful environment for boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu.
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, magnified systematics, exotic rules, tricky rules, opportunistic elders

Shani-yuti-Rahu occupies the doctrinal, ideological, believing 9th-from-Chandra. Birendra was propagandized to the largely illiterate peasantry as a manifestation of Shri Vishnu to whom the people must offer taxes as a form of worship

Shani-yuti-Rahu in 8th-from-4th Birendra was suspected of taking orders from India . This implication was framed as potential treason for being disloyal to the citizens of sovereign Nepal, (very few of whom could read, much less grasp international politics) . However, the underlying threat(8) to the nation (4) was his potential to dislodge the fiercely held economic control of the ruling Rana family of Nepal.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Dhanuzya * incomplete doctrine, empty beliefs, dissolute worldview, not limited by philosophy or theory, ignores restriction on paradigms of belief
  • Ketu in classroom-5 * ambivalent toward entitlements, absentee children, disregards political boundaries, eccentric unsustainable cut-off intelligence, dissolves the game, disperses the creative intelligence
  • Surya-yuti-Ketu * surrendered centrality, empty genius, apathetic intelligence
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * surrendered arrangements, empty promises, unsustainable contracts, apathetic music
