"A proud but not an arrogant nature
This man will command respect
His position in his community will be secure
His weakness, however, is his susceptibility to the blandishments of the Opposite sex.
He must avoid entanglements

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
rulers of 4, 5, 8 and 9 occupy the tantrik, transformative 8th-from-Chandra = Meena-8
the magnificent rising Magha Chandra signifies spiritual kingship through the fire priesthood of Magha.
Chandra vyayapathi ruler-of-12 located in Simha lagna is emotionally attached to matters of vyaya bhava such as the bridge between the astral world and the material world, dreams, meditation and sanctuary spaces such as monasteries and healing enclosures.
Mangala-8 sudden conditions of flesh-death
vidyapathi-5 Guru and the dharmesha-9 Mangala = King-makers of Raja Yoga = exceptionally strong in a super-friendly rashi of Guru
suggestion of many (Brihaspati-8, multiplier) hidden practices and the relationship with Swami Shri Yukteshwara Giri
Multiple initiations due to Kuja-yuti-Guru in Ayur-bhava. Guru-Mangala-8 suggests a king due to vidyapathi-5 + dharmesha-9 (+ lagnesha-1 Surya in putra bhava = genius) but the expression of kingship is entirely in the world of mysteries, hidden forces, and sudden upheavals of catastrophic force.
Rahu in bhava-9 indicates a passionate indoctrinator and an unusual or irregular father-figure (who may be the bio-father or the spiritual guide-guru)
risk-taking father-figure; exotic elements infiltrate the scriptural exegesis or the philosophical interpretation of received dogma;
unconventional style of dharma transmission
For Yogananda, the extraordinary father-guru function of Rahu-9 gives the effect of yogakaraka Mangala in tantric, undisclosed, confidential matters of randhra bhava-8. Access to secret texts and rituals, emphasis on psychic empowerment, self-destruction and re-birth
BPL note: it seems a bit preposterous that this nativity would feature Gohanta Yoga The Butcher. However there could be an esoteric interpretation.
"The true basis of religion is not belief, but intuitive experience.
Intuition is the soul's power of knowing God.
To know what religion is really all about, one must know God."
| "You are walking on the earth as in a dream. |
Our world is a dream within a dream;
you must realize that to find God is the only goal, the only purpose, for which you are here.
For Him alone you exist.
Him you must find."

"At the moment the world's spiritual traditions have greatly degenerated.
It is very important in such times that the practitioners themselves make especially strong efforts to gain realization.
To permit the lineages of transmission to disappear is to allow the world to plunge into darkness."
