BPL commentary:

For Azlesa nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 94

"... this person is careless and unclean about herself and the manner in which she dresses.

  • She is not good-looking but indeed rather homely.

  • She is distinguished by some disfigurement on face or body

  • and is rather miserable and unhappy.

She has a secretive and rather bitter nature

  • and is somewhat harsh and unkind in her dealings with others,

  • where opportunity presents itself.

If she cultivated kindness and tact,

  • her shortcomings might be forgotten by those with whom she comes in contact.

But her attitude and appearance are not conducive to popularity."

As the future Queen of England, she spoke and wrote fluent native English. She was a capable reader of French and Italian, and could interpret basic Latin documents.

She bound all of her children, siblings, and many other relatives closely to her via frequent, detailed, emotional letters of correspondence. She arranged all of her children's marriages to the royal families of Europe. Although they spread throughout the continent, her widespread family often visited her.

Seven assassination attempts. She survived them all and lived until age 81.

nichha-Guru occupies deadly bhava-7 in many varga

Husband-1 Prince Consort Albert

dhava-karaka Guru-7 in in 9th-from-Chandra suggests that Victoria felt fortunate in the company of her cousin-husband Albert. Nichha-Guru ruling 6 and 9 suggests that while Albert was prone to ailment (6) he was also an entitled aristocrat and a natural father-figure (9). In Victoria's early decades, the British parliament was barely tolerating its historic support for the expensive, unproductive royal classes. As a public expense in times of tight budget, Albert was considered a nichha-Guru over-expansion. Victoria tried hard to get her husband recognized as a kingly consort. However, her petitions were considered excessive. He was a capable helper (6) and father (9).


As a widow following the death of husband 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 Brown's sudden death age 56. Victoria's journals show her reeling in grief as she writes, "for a second time". Timing of Brown's death = Shani-Guru chidradasha * Guru rules 7th-from-2nd-from-Chandra-11 = decease of the second husband. Victoria was buried wearing John Brown's mother's wedding ring upon the third finger of her right hand.

Guru-7 usually indicates two unions. However, 2nd-from-Chandra-11 = bhava-12, suggesting that the second partner was largely invisible to the public. Budha-Bharani rules 2nd-from-Chandra and Budha-yuti-Zukra-Azvini, suggesting and enduring if dreamlike second partnership associated with horses (azvini). John Brown


nichha-Guru-7 also represents her second child, son Edward VII "the Playboy Prince". Their relationship soured over time, due to the poor public reputation engendered by his self-indulgent spending and sexual profligacy. Her exceptionally long reign (63 years) delayed his Kingship, which he patently resented. Although marked at birth as the male heir-apparent, he was only able to reign for nine years following his mother's death.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Meza * appreciation of competitive movement, pleasures of conquest, athletic sensuality, aristocratic arrangements
  • Zukra-10 * pleasure of regulation, enjoys lawful, socially iconic, financially visible equity, appreciation of order
  • Zukra-yuti-Budha * sweetened messages, gracious explanations, singing and songwriting

Zukra rules the career-professional 10th navamsha

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Meena * old dreams, pressured prayer, pressured feet, imposed sanctuary, must imagine guidance with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-9 * must preach the old doctrine, old paradigms of belief; cautious, conventional father-figures; chronic rigidity of worldview
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, physical discipline, constrained movement
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu* resistance against ambition, disciplined risk, constrained opportunism, irregular elders

nichha-Brihaspati-7 parivartamsha Shani-9.

Shani-9 obligation to maintain received doctrine, catechisms of religious belief, patrons and patronage.

Shani rules karakamsha-8 secrecy. Unlike today's royalty, Victoria was socially isolated and did very in terms of little public works.

Shani in 11th-from-11th = resistance to revenue, but success via perseverance

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 Earthbody-Exit.

Shani-yuti-Mangala much resistance and delay of urgent projects

Shani drishti to Chandra-yuti-Surya suggests that both of her parents accepted the strictures of public life. Young Victoria was raised into the type of pious displays of moral purity and sexual restraint Shani-yuti-Mangala which 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)

  • Rahu-Meena * mask of dreamlike Other Worlds
  • Rahu in bhava-9 * privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview; seeks a special, important teacher-preacher role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy. Opportunistic father-figure, ambitious professors and religious teachers.
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * amplified competition, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, exotic rules, tricky rules, opportunistic elders

Vargottamsha Navamsha-Rahu-3

Victoria was a tremendous letter-writer.. She wrote every day, to many correspondents, and voluminously.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu-Kanya * incomplete service, empty disagreements, dissolute arguments

Ketu in classroom-3 * absentee sibling, dissolved messaging boundaries, disregards discussions, irrelevance of the mental narrative

Much of Victoria's copious writing, painting, and several of her commissioned artworks were destroyed posthumously by her vindictive son Edward, who declared them unseemly. Edward detested John Brown, and many of his mother's most passionate expressions referred directly or indirectly to her beloved faithful servant..

Ketu occupies 5th-from-Chandra . She was separated from all of her children, although she kept in touch by writing letters.

Her eldest 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 strengthening effects of Shani-Mangala-Rahu ++ Guru drishti into writing bhava-3, suggesting that Victoria worked assiduously to maintain the connection with her eldest. Her daughter died a few months after Victoria.
