  • Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 88.

BPL commentary: For Shata-taraka natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

"A quiet and unassuming person,

thoughtful and meditative

  • yet given to sudden outbursts of temper.

Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.

Prefers solitude to the company of others.

  • Does not care for small talk

  • and finds social contact rather tiresome.

Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."

A light eater and moderate in most things."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka

Rogesha Chandra-5 suggests a disinclination toward children, and a deep emotional conflict typically jealousy regarding matters of creativity, entitlement, authorship, genius, and centrality.

Newton was notorious for mood-swings and emotional insecurity. He was known for a classic pattern of reacting to logical criticism of his academic work with fits of rage

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

productive writings

Despite his genius, Newton was an irascible fellow

Newton was prone toward episodic paranoia and rage. He was particularly violent toward any suggestion that he might collegially share credit with other scientists who were clearly collaborating on the same topics and discussions, and aggressively handled any suggestions of plagiarism with personally vindictive attacks.

6th-from-Chandra = bhava-10 Vrizchika with Mangala-Meza-3 * Mulatrikona furthermore in 6th-from-10th, suggesting that matters of public reputation and respect were especially contentious and even vicious for him.

  • For decades, Newton attacked and attempted to discredit the significant scientific contributions of Robert Hooke, which were well known to have contributed to Newton's own conclusions.
  • In 1711, Newton launched a bitter attack against his adversary Gottlieb Leibniz as to who indeed had invented the calculus. Friends of both scholars had asked them to stop this long-lasting diatribe, but Newton apparently could not stop. The accusations (6) sullied the dignity of both parties, and left the intellectual legacy of Leibniz in permanent disrepute.

In his later-life tenure as president of the Royal Society (60's and 70's), Newton was viewed as controlling to the point of tyranny, dominating the work of others and manipulating who and what would be published

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka


de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton was able to combine a splendid career in theoretical science with a highly profitable government contract as Master of the Mint. Newton's Saturan * Shani-Meena-2 (the mint) enjoyed a highly empowering parivartamsha yoga with Guru-Kumbha-1 (personality identity).

Remarkably for such a professionally productive scientist, he also had substantial economic profits due to dhanakaraka dhanapati-2 + Vriddhipathi-11 Guru-1 parivartamsha lagnesha Shani. He gave generously to charities during his later years, and he died a monied man.

Shani-yuti-Ketu-2 * Shani-Meena yuti Ketu-Meena * family of origin, lineage knowledge, contained wealth, speech

Newton had a disconnected family. His father died before Newton was born. His mother remarried several times, and Newton was a violent teenager. Although he remained tolerant if not devoted toward his mother (a challenge given Chandra-Rogesha) he overtly hated his stepfathers and received no measurable support from his family.

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka

Newton lived a long life due to Rahu-8 and Shani drishti to 8 .

afflicted family of origin, lineage knowledge, contained treasury, speech
