Distinctive features of the nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

Father * Surya-3 salesman, factories

Albert Einstein's father, Hermann Einstein, was an electrical engineer and electrical systems salesman. His company owned factories that produced electrical components, and it won the contract to bring a municipal electricity system to Munich. Hermann's business fluctuations were stressful, and he died age 55.

Writing, Publication = Surya + Shani + Budha + Zukra-3

Surya occupies the creative 5th-from-Chandra + Zukra-3 rules performance art, creative scholarship (5) based on publications, conversations, cohort = 3rd-from-3rd

bhava-3 contains Surya-Zukra-Budha-Shani which complex along with Rahu-1 casts drishti upon 9-theory

Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein was a leading developer of the quantum paradigm in 20th century western theoretical physics. He was never long absent from the teaching classroom, and he communicated vigorously with his peer group via highly intellectualized writings such as formal proofs and expositions of thought experiments. Along with his scientific accomplishments, Einstein's ideological (Guru) views on the social order were also highly regarded, which caused him to be invited to govern the new state of Israel. However, he declined and remained in the university.

Einstein was first and foremost a gifted communicator of conceptual ideas (Meena)

Albert Einstein's work is celebrated as an exemplary expression of explanatory genius. By the end of his career Einstein had become a legendary, almost mythical, figure representing the descriptive and predictive power of mathematics combined with intuitive confidence (Surya rules 8). His writings, lectures, and group talks with other scientists created a discussion (3) in the scientific community that produced extraordinary discovery of new principles of spatial interpretation (Rahu-Mangala-uttama-1).

At the level of material expression, bhava-3 = writing, conference presentations, small networks of sibling-like associations, teamwork, and small-group collaboration. Einstein's call to service was first and foremost as a communicator. His true service was as a writer. Writing manually, bhava-3 for both published journal articles and interpersonal letter-writing was the strongest media vehicle for the dissemination of ideas in his era.

Constant communication through writings and verbal presentations at scientific conferences Einstein's writings communicated not only his independent thought (if there is, at high levels of intellectual inquiry, any such thing as independent thought!) but also the results of collaborative (bhava-3) inquiry amongst the international scientific theorists of his day.

Zukra-Surya period Zukra-yuti-Surya * Surya rules 8-discovery

Surya-3 publications resides in 8th-from-8th ** Surya rules 10th-from-Chandra = Simha-8 In June, July, Sept, and Nov1905 Einstein, then a 25-year-old clerk with the Swiss Paten office, published his Annus Mirabilis papers, These four short, seminal papers on Brownian motion, the photoelectric effect, and special relativity. that catapulted him from the obscurity of a Swiss patent office into international scientific fame. Although he was only 25 years old it was the beginning of an international career offering recognition and respect.

transformation, revolutionary ideas, publication of new identities

Chandra * matrikaraka


Albert Einstein's mother was a community activist whose social networking (11) supported the family business

10th-from-Chandra = bhava-8 revolutionary effects

His leadership in the movement to lay a reborn (8) conceptual foundation for modern science has earned him the title Man of the [20th] Century.

Jyeztha Chandra-11 suggests an emotional penetration of the friendship-community in the form of drilling or mining for harvestable profit, but some failure to replenish the providers (nichha-Chandra takes nourishment but often does not re-supply the provisioning source).

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Uttama-Kuja-yuti-Rahu-1, Einstein demonstrated self-referential and self-reflexive behavior based on self-importance. However Kuja rules 11-communities and 4-education; he was not a loner but rather an educator (4) and a participant in the marketplace of ideas (11).

intense Kuja dosha upon Ketu-7 further impacts marriage-1 and

Einstein is recorded to have told his adopted step-daughter that he conducted 11 extramarital affairs during his second marriage (to the step-daughter's mother).


ruler-of-4 Kuja occupies lagna and Kuja drishti to bhava-4 with tremendous strength indicating that Einstein was a natural, vigorous, and lifelong teacher

however Kuja also rules 6th-from-Chandra.suggesting that, as is common for university researchers, his teaching duties created a degree of emotional conflict, Also, his homeland was destroyed by war during WW-2.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

nichha-bhanga Budha * this claim is possible due to Budha-yuti-Surya because Surya rules 10th-from-Chandra as well as Budha-yuti-Zukra because Zukra occupies Meena-uttama


Nichha-Budha suffers from excessive conceptualism while expressing mundane communications. Einstein was apparently a very holistic thinker whose view of reality was centered in the boundaryless All-One Source consciousness. Budha becomes highly structured due to proximity to Shani, so most of the incompleteness and spaciness of the nichha-Budha is compensated.

Early apparent learning disabilities

These days young Einstein would be called a spatial learner. Modern elementary school teachers would recognize and accommodate his learning style. Unfortunately, in the late 1800's in Germany, he suffered at the hands of schoolteachers who accused him of daydreaming and being stupid. He was caught in a punitive (Shani), strictly linear, repetitive-drill school system Budha-yuti-Shani. He was considered rather witless. His speech was delayed Budha-yuti-Shani.

Yet he blossomed when he discovered physics = a highly spatial subject wherein his incredible imagination (Budha-Meena) could roam the multi-dimensional cosmos. He was not introduced to academic physics until his teens. Presumably his early educational years during Budha mahadasha might have been a quite frustrating time for his parents, and his teachers. However Einstein's writings report a fairly happy childhood..


Budha rules bhava-6 war. Einstein was an avowed pacifist and he regularly spoke for peaceful options.

Plagiarism and Missing Citations

The primary criticism against his written work is plagiarism. Einstein frequently, even usually, failed to cite the work of fellow theorists whose ideas contributed to his published conclusions.

Einstein did not properly attribute his human researcher sources within his academic writings. This negligence earned him the ire of fellow scientists who found him intellectually arrogant (Surya-yuti-nichha-Budha). Fellow theorists who shared their ideas with him but received no recognition for their contributions accused him of illicitly appropriating the ideas of others.

Einstein may have had some interpretive-communicative disability within the Autism Spectrum. by those who have it, Autistic (self-focused) thought is often not felt as a disability but rather a perceptual gift. He is reported to have not spoken complete sentences until the age of nine. Initially his parents and schoolmasters thought he was not very bright.

During his Budha Mahadasha childhood, young Einstein was considered autistic and possibly developmentally delayed. He did not speak clearly until the age of nine. He was not a distinguished young student.

Villainized = Budha rogesha

At times in Einstein's career, his work was controversial. He was accused of appropriating other's ideas when he was, in all probability, clarifying and better formulating concepts that were partially developed by others.

He was villainized by the Nazi regime as a perpetrator of "Jewish physics " which was propagandized as an anti-Aryan intellectual disease. His politics (5) were also highly controversial, including passionate Zionism, pacifism, and his involvement in the US Civil Rights movement.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Brihaspati rules 10th-navamsha * 10th-navamsha contains Mula-Chandra (risk)

Guru-2 rules 3-12

Breadth of vision and compassion = universal, philosophical religious sensibility; teacher of conceptual thought. vyaya-pati, the extraordinary reflective and visionary capacity, clairvoyant and clairaudient communion with spirits, and artistic imagination

Guru-2 languages * Guru rules 12 distant lands * Guru-2 parivartamsha Shani-3

During Chandra-Guru period, just when his career in physics was beginning to blossom and his second family life was estblished, the Nazi police began attacking, imprisoning, and exterminating Jews. He was invited to the USA (12) Although older than 50, his Guru-2 helped Einstein to learn English and teach university classes in English.

Children and Stepchildren

Children of the second wife = 5th from 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-4 home-parenting. Stepdaughters brought into his marriage to his cousin Else are easily incorporated into the home.

His own biological children are less easy to accommodate, as represented by bhava-3-5-7 (bhava-7 shows his schizophrenic youngest son)

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra rules-10 occupies-3 suggesting public respect-and-reputation due to reports and announcements, especially during the period of Zukra. Einstein's scholarly publications are still read carefully for their delightfully simple, clear and precise explanations and descriptions.

He was politically (5) active and outspoken on matters of nuclear war (against) and independent Israel (for).


Einstein's public marriages follow the pattern of partnership judged from Chandra in bhava-11.

  • Marriage-1 = 7th-from-Chandra = bhava-5 genius, creativity ruled by uttama-Zukra-3 publications, collaboration.
  • Marriage-2 = 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-12 privacy, seclusion, interiority rules by Guru-2 family. Else and Albert were cousins raised together in the same family. Second marriage partner was dedicated to defending Einstein against unwanted attentions.

Marriage-1: Mileva Maric was born in Titel-Vojvodina into a Serbian Christian family whereas Albert was raised in a culturally Jewish German home. The young couple studied together at Swiss Federal Polytechnic Institute in Zurich.

Ketu-7 in both D-1 and D-9 indicates emotional and cultural distance, often a culture gap . With Ketu-7, the partners can see each other socio-physically but never fully connect psycho-emotionally. Einstein's parents were opposed to the marriage but his father died in Oct-1902 and the wedding proceeded in Jan-1903.

Mileva Maric is considered to have contributed substantial mathematical support to Einstein's theories, although the details of that contribution have yet to be proven.

On 27-Jan-1902 their first daughter was born in Novi Sad, Serbia but the child disappeared. They married on 06-Jan-1903, and produced two sons. One son became a university professor of hydraulic engineering who wrote several texts definitive in their field. The other son suffered a lifetime of severe mental illness (schizophrenia).

Although behaviorally long separated from Mileva (having joined with Else in 1919) Albert Einstein gave his prize-money from the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics to Mileva Maric, which some observers interpret as his acknowledgement of his wife's substantial and essential contribution to his work. Surya-Chandra period, and Chandra-11 which brings awards is also ruler of 7-spouse.

Marriage-2: Else Einstein second wife was not an intellectual and she was not concerned with helping to develop Einstein's perceptual framework. She contributed a shield of invisibility (12) which allowed him to continue on conceptually by himself.


Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric wedding, Jan-1903 (his Zukra-Zukra swabhukti). Albert and Mileva had three children together


In a masculine nativity, Zukra represents the wifely-figures. One way to measure the number of feminine partners in a masculine-identified life is to evaluate the number and strength of any graha yuti Zukra, and graha residing in rashi of Zukra. For Einstein, there are no graha in rashi of Zukra.

Three graha = Surya, Budha, and Shani = accompany the daitayguru. Budha = siblings and cousins; and Einstein's second wife was indeed his childhood playmate and first cousin. Surya randresha generally suggests liaisons with team-mate, fellow writer or publisher.


Zukra-Meena * uttama Einstein was an accomplished musician and also a bit of a fashionisto. Like most folks with Zukra-yuti-Surya, Einstein was charmingly handsome in his own unique way. His innocently rakish fashion sense captivated the public. He was photographed extensively in later years (Shani for age, influencing Zukra for beauty). His image remains the most recognizable icon for genius (Surya) in the modern Western iconography.

Zukra has a beautifying effect on Einstein's communications and appearance (Shani lagnesha; his collaborative work in professional conferences (3) and through publication of scholarly articles and letter-writing (3); and also upon the architectonic harmony of his discoveries


Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-10 = political and governance activity.

Empowered Zukra-Meena * uttama rules Arudha lagna

Public illusion - Arudha - ignores several preceding decades of scientific experimentation and discussion. It perceives only an act of pure glamour (5) Einstein's published work is understood by historians of science to be a cumulative expression of numerous minds doing advanced research in theoretical physics during Einstein's era. However, in popular imagination, Einstein is known as the Genius of the Century on the cover of TIME magazine, who single-handedly transformed western understanding of the core structure of physical reality.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Disciplining, methodical, restrictive Shani drishti upon 5-scholarship, 9-theory, and 12-research sanctuary

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

Rahu-Mangala = identification with tremendous explosions, massive scale of death enforced during WW-2

Rahu-Makara-1 and Rahu-Meena-1 navamsha suggests a very extraordinary personality, vigorously unique and opportunistic

He is framed as an intellectual hero, who plumbed (Kuja) the depths of the unknown (Rahu) to discover a view of the universe which changed the modern world forever. Exotic (Rahu) ideas into competitive (Kuja) action. Male-energized pursuit of development of tantric secrets: describing the movement of prana from energy state into mass state and back (in perpetual cycle).

Kuja-yuti-Rahu receives no Parashari drishti; no constraints upon direct forward movement (Mangala) or desire to self-elevate to higher levels of privilege (Rahu)

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu occupies the philosophical 9th from Chandra suggests that neither Albert nor his mom subscribed to a fixed doctrine. The family were non-observant Jews.

Ketu-7 and Ketu also in 7th navamsha = apathy, wandering, and weak psychic boundaries in marriage-1

Contributing to his self-reflexive interpretation of his role in developing theories which were in fact the product of a scientific collaborative community, Rahu-1 amplifies the self-importance and Ketu-7 tends to devalue the contributions of partners, peers, or advisors.

Perhaps due to his disregard for the (delusional, easily dispersed) boundaries between energy fields, Einstein's relationship behavior also displayed relatively loose social boundaries.

Behari commentary upon Ketu in 2nd pada of Pushya, "You will need to be cautious of bad association..."

Zukra-Ketu period almost-death

Ketu-7 brings a near-death experience characterized by dissociation and exhaustion

  • During 1917-20 Einstein suffered recurring bouts of jaundice, liver illness, and general weakness. During this time, he was nursed by cousin Elsa who became his mistress.

Rahu-Ketu period fleshdeath

  • Einstein died without benefit of last rites nor even any human company, in a hospital room in New Jersey.


300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotishi BV Raman

11. Vanchana Chora Bheethi Yoga


  • The Lagna is occupied by a malefic with Gulika in a trine

  • or Gulika is associated with the lords of Kendras and Thrikonas

  • Or the Lord of Lagna is combined with Rahu, Saturn or Kethu.


the native will always entertain feelings of suspicion towards others around him. Here three sets of combinations can apply:

  • Gulika should be associated with the lords of 1, 4, 7, 10, 5 and 9.

  • Lord of Lagna should join Rahu or Saturn or Kethu.

In all these cases, the person will not only have fears from cheats, rogues and thievesbut he will also have huge material losses.

The combinations pertaining to this Yoga are found in almost all horoscopes, so that we are all guilty of cheating and being cheated one another in some form or the other.

It is a tragedy of our social life that a merchant minting millions at the cost of the poor is left scot-free while the poor, committing theft in the face of poverty and want, are booked by law.

Cheating is practiced in a variety of ways. Fertile brains find countless methods to cheat their associates . The merchants have various ways of cheating their clients. The lawyer is equally successful. The medical man commands many ways

Gulika is considered the son of Saturn and his position is to be carefully fixed in the Zodiac. The Yoga given above refers to persons who will be the victims of fraud but the same combination can also be extended to apply to those who perpetrate the deeds.
