Prominent Features of the Nativity




Surya * pitrikaraka



father was King

parliament regularly balked at her demand for fully subsidized expenses, including rent-free housing, servants (including one special servant, John Brown) horses and carriages, and untaxed lands for her and her dependents. Aside from the occasional parade, she did little to contribute to the public welfare. Her entitlements were based on blood (Mesha) not merit. Although often threatened with de-funding, she made a few key allies in Parliament and continued without interruption upon her landed inheritance until fleshdeath.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Chandra yuvatipathi-7 marriage located in bhava-5 royalty centrality entitlements.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Brihaspati occupies radical lagna in parivartamsha with lagnesha Shani. Seven assassination attempts. She survived them all and lived until age 81.

Guru occupies the lagna of D-1, D-9 and D-10 and many varga


dhava-karaka Guru-1 shows that Victoria was profoundly personality-identified with her husband Albert. Nichha-Guru ruling 12 and 3 suggests that while Albert was a management type (3) and he hailed from a distant land (12) he was not a proactive leader or even a decisive man. The British parliament was barely tolerating its expensive, unproductive royal classes and as a public expense in times of tight budget, Albert was considered a nichha-Guru over-expansion. Victoria tried hard to get her aristocratic husband credentialed into the kingly role, but nichha-Guru parivartamsha Shani-3 indicates that the materialistic claims toward royal entitlements were unsupportable. He was a capable administrator of her symbolic role (1) and her calendar (3), and judging by the number of children they produced he was also active in the bedroom (12). Yet Albert was not himself suited to royal authority, and never obtained it.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani drishti to Chandra-yuti-Surya suggests that both of her parents accepted the strictures of public life, and she was raised into the type of pious displays of purity and restraintwhich became the hallmarks of Victorian culture

  • emotional repression, alienation from mother (due to pernicious effects of Mangala-yuti-Rahu upon Shani)

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Soon after the fleshdeath of Albert, Queen Victoria developed an intensely sentimental but secret relationship with the master of her equerry, Mr. John Brown. This cross-class relationship lasted for decades but ended with his terribly sudden death, from which she reeled in grief. * Rahu-Surya period * Surya rules-8 discovery of hidden affairs

Powerful vargottamsha Rahu-Meena in 10th navamsha. Rahu-yuti-Shani joined a Rahu-yuti-Mangala in bhava-3 * 8th-from-8th * sudden transformations. Rahu's ruler Guru occupies radical lagna in parivartamsha with lagnesha Shani. Lagnesha Shani provides identity and as dhanapati-2 lineage, while Mangala bandesha-4 and Vriddhipathi-11 provides the establishment in the culture of a settled peoples (4, containing uttama-Surya kingship). Therefore her Rahu is super-empowered.

Rahu-3 passion for writing. She wrote every day, to many correspondents, and voluminously

Ketu occupies bhava- 9

absentee father Prince Edward, Duke of Kent

Ketu-9 also suggests ambivalence toward received doctrine, catechisms of religious belief, patrons and patronage (unlike today's royalty, Victoria was socially isolated and did very in terms of little public works.)

Ketu occupies 5th-from-Chandra

  • normally suggests distancing from the eldest child. In this case not emotional distance but geographical. Her daughter did move far away into a German family at age 17 at a time when travel was very difficult and the state interests of the two countries were in conflict thus placing considerable distance between Victoria and her eldest child born 21-Nov-1840 Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa

  • Yet there was a close relationship by letter-writing due to the strength of Shani-Mangala-Rahu in 3, 7th-from-Ketu suggesting that Victoria worked assiduously to maintain the connection with her eldest. Ketu receives strengthening drishti of Kuja, Shani, and Guru . Her daughter died a few months after Victoria.
