Distinctive features of the Nativity
Among his engineering designs including new concepts (at the time) and improvements upon existing designs. He likely had access to some classical Greek inspirations such as Archimedes' prototype drawings. Naturally in context of his patronage sources being aristocratic strongmen and warriors, many of his designs had military purpose.
Skilled craft identities which Leonardo demonstrated were said to include
Leonardo's father was a wealthy aristocrat who served the court as a notary. In modern terms, his dad was a contract lawyer.
Surya occupies the mercantile, messaging 3rd-from-Chandra
Whatever his other liabilities (especially his Shani) the drishti of uttama-Kuja-10 into uttama-Surya-1 creates an extremely vigorous, sexualized, brilliant, competitive, dominating, and regal warrior being.
Chandra rules 4
Da Vinci's mother was said to have been a peasant woman of undistinguished lineage. Nevertheless she would have been networked into an economic community.
Kuja rules 1-8
Uttama Mangala occupies the private, imaginative, sanctuary-seeking 12th-from-Chandra
Budha rules 3-6, but harsha yoga protects against jail (6) and mental collapse (yet Ketu-3 indicates mental disorientation, unfinished projects)
Nichha-Budha occupies the family-oriented, treasure-accumulating, historical, values-based 2nd-from-Chandra
Da Vinci was ambidextrous, meaning that his right hand and his left hand were equally capable of writing and painting. He was accounted by contemporaries as showing paranoid behaviors, and by modern standards he might be diagnosed with the learning disability called dyslexia.
According to accounts of his peers, Leonardo could draw in a forward direction with one hand while writing in a backward direction with the other hand. One of his signature skills was a a mirror-image cursive Roman-alphabet script, which he personally could read and he taught his apprentices to read, but which baffled most others.
Leonardo's pre-eminent skill was drawing. As a draftsman, he produced voluminous sketches for a broad range of ideas, inventions, and possibilities.
Brihaspati occupies Rahu-ruled Shatavisaka nakshatra, indicating a social network full of visionaries, philosophers, and cosmic-scale thinkers. Da Vinci was reputed to have had an enormous number of diversely talented friends, including mathematicians, musicians, architects, playwrights, engineers, singers, and poets.
He was so popular and well-connected that the other normally ostracizing features of his identity (gay, illegitimate, left-handed, a flamboyant dresser, reputedly somewhat paranoid) were never obstacles to his success. Indeed, his remarkable social eccentricities were celebrated.
Zukra occupies the home-loving 4th-from-Chandra, suggesting that he needed to live in gracious surroundings. Also, his mother's mother (maternal grandmother) is likely to have doted on little daVinci, perhaps providing luxuries and sweets to her grandchild.
Zukra in swakshetra + swabhava + Zukra yogakaraka from Kumbha-Chandra + Zukra in kendra from Chandra-Kumbha
Da Vinci was an accomplished musician. He played the lyre at a high level of artistic and technical proficiency. At his first introduction to the prestigious court of Milano, young Leonardo was presented as a musician not as a fine artist.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani occupies the transformative 8th-from-Chandra , suggesting a long life despite many threats to longevity, and a certain stalwart emotional rigidity. The Mother is usually long-lived as well. da Vinci died age 67, which was a healthy age for his era but not nearly so extended as the life of his adversary Michelangelo, who died age 88.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Rahu in Zukra-ruled Purvazadha occupies the friendly, gainful, social-networking 11th-from-Chandra. DaVinci was known for having a large and economically supportive community network. He was well-known, well-liked despite (or likely because of) his outré clothing style , never short of funds and never deprived of opportunity.
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu rules the rising nakshatra of inventive Azwini
Unlimited Ketu occupies the creative, showy 5th-from-Chandra. Generally also a signal of preference to not produce biological children but rather generate a higher creativity.
Ketu-3 indicates mental disorientation, unfinished projects. Da Vinci finished only a small percentage of the projects that he conceived at the draft stage. When his painting of The Last Supper was delayed extremely, the monastery that had commissioned this work notoriously threatened to jail him into the monastery until the painting got done.
