BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poets romantic lovers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Denebola.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Vimala Yoga

Bhava-8 contains Azvini-Rahu + Azvini-Zukra + Bharani-Surya

new therapeutic medical treatment modality of psychiatry


Freud's father was an (apparently) impoverished Hasidic wool merchant reputed for his prowess in Torah Study. Bharani-Surya suggests a money-changer. His father was married 3 times. Uttama-Surya + Rahu + Zukra would suggest that behind this camouflage, his dad was a man of considerable occult power and hidden assets.

Freud had a deeply orthodox but mystery-loving Jewish fiber-trader father who was secretive and dominating according to Surya-Zukra-Rahu-8-Meza taking drishti of dispositor Mangala. His father was married three times and the family moved often. Nevertheless young Freud received a substantial education due to uttama-Surya ruling 4th-from-uttama-Chandra. the 10-4 Surya-Chandra angle also indicates the social alignment of the parents. Freud's Kanya lagna occupies 6th-from-Surya. He kept his father's expertise in the secretive, but transformed his father's flamboyant esotericism into the new medical (Kanya) interpretation of the forbidden.

Head = uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu-8 + Zukra-8 ruler of 2-face = masks the head

Baby Sigismund was born with a membrane shielding his face and head called the caul (caput galeatum).

Rahu-amplified ego and the (eventual) collapse of psychoanalytic theory

Freud's theories have lost most of their vigor due to a lack of supporting data after more than a century of seeking confirmatory proof in psychiatric clinical practice, Freud's intellectual ego-membrane (Surya) apparently so dominated his undertanding that even a Kumbha swamsha was not enough to correct his personality excesses.

Vimala Yoga

When told that his books were being publicly burned, Freud said "what progress we have made! In the Middle Ages they would have burned me; now they are content to burn my books ". Luckily Freud's Vimala Yoga protected him from those who would attack taboo-breakers. (Surya occupies 8 rules 12 + Surya-yuti-Rahu )

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Budha-Vrishabha yuti Chandra-Vrishabha

As the eldest son of a young woman who had an elderly husband, Sigismund had an especially close relationship with his mother. Budha lagnesha and karmesha adds conversation and shows his mother-muse to be a lifelong supporter for his career. Freud's mom stayed by his side for the great majority of her son's life. She died when he was 75 years old, and he himself died only seven years later age 83.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation; thrust toward service, push toward unfairness
  • Mangala in bhava-1 * drive toward vitality, pursuit of competition, direct physical action, thrusting vigor, energized muscular conquests

Mangala-Kanya-1 creates a significant Kuja Dosha that afflicts the equity status of interpersonal relationships, both personal and professional.

Mangala owns 8 and drishti into Rahu-8 further enflames the drive toward upheaval, disclosure, unmasking, transformation

After years of shared intellectual and psycho-medical inquiry, Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung 's understanding of the structure of the subconscious mind began to diverge from Freud's viewpoint, and Jung split from Freud's group in 1912 during Freud's intensely polarizing catalysis experience Shani-Mangala period. Kuja ruler of 3-8 is always a challenge for the Kanya nativity. Kanya Mangala is effective for criticizing ideas but very unhelpful for criticizing people, and Jung had had enough.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Vrishabha * financial communications, articulation of historic, tonal, collected values
  • Budha in bhava-7 * narrative of relationships, contracts, deals, arrangements
  • uttama-Budha-yuti-Chandra * articulation of comfortable routines, message of sensitivity and emotional flow

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

* Hamsha Yoga

  • Guru-Meena * much guidance, many imaginings, many dreams, intuitive beliefs, doctrine of astral guidance
  • Guru in bhava-7 * many contracts, much negotiation, much partnership, abundant agreement, numerous alliances

Little Sigismund Schlomo was the first product of his father's third marriage, quickly followed by numerous younger siblings. Freud's father was married three times (Surya + Rahu + Zukra). His father's marriages provided two elder step-siblings * Mangala rules 3 siblings, and Guru in the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra indicates many siblings.

Sigismund Freud also produced six children of his own. Thus Freud was part of a quite large extended family. Guru drishti to 11-1-3 increases income, physical stature, siblings

Despite his parents' early poverty and moving from city to city while trying to improve their luck (Guru-7 rules 4, many houses), Sigismund was a superb student who loved to read in his native German and scriptural Hebrew; as well he read proficiently in French, Italian, Spanish, English, Latin and Greek = Budha + uttama-Chandra occupy bhava-9 philosophical theoretical doctrine, while a strong Guru-Meena rules both the 4th and the 4th-from-4th.

Tragically, after Freud died safely at his home in London via physician-assisted suicide, his four elder sisters perished in the Nazi extermination labor camps. They all died within his posthumous Ketu-Guru period. Guru-7 endings.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Meza-Azvini * appreciation of competitive movement, athletic sensuality, aristocratic aesthetic
  • Zukra-8 * pleasure of occult secrets, enjoys rejuvenating, camouflaged, hidden harmony
  • Zukra-yuti-Surya * gracious brightness, radiant beauty, sweetly confident entitlement, enjoys drama
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * gracious opportunism, amplified beauty, sweetly ambitious desire

Sigmund Freud produced six children with his avowed wife Martha,. Due to Zukra-yuti-Rahu, he also conducted a lifelong Affair du Coeur with Martha's younger sister. Dr. Freud's nativity shows Zukra with a fiercely entitled Bharani-Surya and a taboo-breaking Azwini-Rahu-8 a

Kuja Dosha upon the marriage, due to criticizing Kuja-Kanya drishti into Zukra-Meza. The pattern of secrecy and flaunting taboo in arrangements (Zukra) is prominent

lifetime love affair with Martha's sister, Ms. Minna Bernays * Surya-yuti-Zukra * uttama * Chandra-yuti-Budha in bhava-9 = younger sister of the wife . Wife's younger sister has similar temperament and muse-qualities as his Mother.

His wife (Zukra) tolerated Freud's long-term sexual alliance with her own younger sister, and encouraged him to explore (Vrischika) the psycho-sexual complexities which promoted the exciting (Rahu) new (Meza) field of hidden motivations (psychiatry).

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani in Bhava-10 * must govern the old order; cautious, conventional leadership roles; chronic weighty social duties
  • Shani-Mithunaya * old messages, old conversations, imposed instructions, pressured hand-arm, must signal with scarce resources

Shani = yogakaraka ruler of 9-10 from Chandra-Vrishabha-9

Shani rules Kumbha swamsha = science, economics, marketplace linkages, , social networks, communities, connections

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

  • Rahu in bhava-8 * privilege via glamorous or unusual secrets recycling, rebirth, reinvention; seeks a special, important, therapeutic role in transformative, hidden, revolutionary, catastrophic identity changes. Opportunistic, ambitious in-laws.

  • Rahu-Meza * mask of competitive, pioneering, urgent force
  • uttama Surya-yuti-Rahu * amplified ambition, magnified confidence, exotic creativity, tricky drama, opportunistic father, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of political genius
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * amplified attractions, exotic art-music, tricky sweets, opportunistic sister

Protected by Vimala Yoga, Freud paid little attention to the Nazi predators surrounding him, until it was almost too late. Emergencies Rahu-Meza yuti Surya-Meza * uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu-8

Freud won the coveted Goethe Prize in 1930 during Budha-Rahu period. Soon afterward, his books were banned and burned by Nazi attacks on Jewish writers. Luckily Freud's Vimala Yoga (ruler-of-12 Simha-8) protected him personally against imprisonment, even if his books were destroyed.

During his Ketu-Rahu period, When Jews were being aggressively imprisoned and exterminated in Austria, Freud's friends and colleagues facilitated his undisclosed (Rahu-8) movement to London. They were hoping that, although he was already suffering from advanced cancer of the tongue, his move to greater physical safety might help Freud to continue writing. Rahu's ruler = Mangala-1 Kanya the critical investigator and writer about hidden topics. Using assistants for writing and transcription, Freud was able to finish two more books during Ketu-Rahu period before he died in Ketu-Guru period (marana-karaka Brihaspati rules-7 completion.)

With much help under terrifying emergency circumstances (8), Freud was removed to London during Nazi exterminations = Ketu-Rahu period. He was able to finish several books albeit these were written by assistants using his famous name uttama-Surya-pride. His books were published in London by A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Virginia Woolf.

His European professional standing as a thought-leader and professor allowed Freud and many of his extended family to escape to London under dire threat. However at age 83 and in extremely poor health, Freud died a year after arrival in London, via physician-assisted suicide (8) due to unbearable pain of his cancerous jaw, Sept-1939. Ketu-Guru period

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Thula * incomplete alliance, empty trades, negotiations
  • Ketu in classroom-2 * disregards family-knowledge-treasury boundaries, absent from lineage history, irrelevance of the mouth, the foods, and the stored goods

Ketu-2 is often an indicator of disinterest in making a second marriage, even when there are other pointers suggesting multiple mates. In Freud's case Zukra + Rahu + Surya -- while Ketu-Thula (accommodations) in bhava02 isruled by moudhya Zukra-yuti-Rahu-8 -- would suggest three wife-figures, but his ceremonial marriage facade endured throughout his life with no known divorce action.

Beginning in his Rahu-Mangala period, Freud was an addicted smoker of cigars and cigarettes. Bhava-3 lungs ruled by self-destructive Mangala-1. He believed that smoking improved his mental performance. The meetings of his Vienna circles of physicians treating nervous disorders were reputedly great smoke-fests with all the wise doctors smoking like chimneys. Freud was rarely seen without a cigar or some type of smoking device in his hand. In 1923 he was diagnosed with malignant epithelioma (mouth cancer) from the smoking, but he did not stop smoking. Ketu-2 while Ketu's ruler occupies 8 yuti Rahu and combust = enthusiastically disregards the mouth.

Ketu-2 Epithelioma (tongue cancer) from the smoking reached terminal stage, and his career was effectively ended. Ketu smoke, dissolution. Ketu-Ketu mahadasha and following until Lightbody Lift-off .
