Masculine Nativities

Azlesa * Naga

BPL commentary:

For Azlesa nativities, the condition of conversational, commercial, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, businesslike Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commerical agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Hydra.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."

BPL commentary Azlesa

Mr. Ponde often repeats his particular aversion to Azlesa nativities. Yet whether male or female, Azlesa "the leash" produces many of the world's great writers, poets, and lyricists.

As well, Azlesa often show mastery of Budha-type mental manipulation skills including verbal acuity in public speaking, literary publishing, business administration, and clever handcraft. When twisted under emotional (Chandra) pressure, this handiness could become Azlesa's notorious squeezing, choking, strangling, or extortion -- but rarely.

Azlesa are typically eccentric Budha-ruled creatures who are tightly focused on their information (choreography, lyrics, sequencing, plots, characters) ...

This feature of their mentality does not naturally parlay into unkindness or uncleanness ... only a rather grumpy intolerance for people and things irrelevant to their task.

Prominent Features of the Nativity King_Stephen_dasha1.JPG

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka


King's father was a merchant seaman. As King tells the tale, his dad abandoned the family by casually walking out the door on the pretext of going to the store. He never returned.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Mr. King has a notably large physical body. A big and tall man (as Americans say) his height at 6-foot-4-inches and an at-times heavyweight physique is indicated via lagnesha Jyestha Chandra-yuti-Guru, where expanding Brihaspati casts drishti upon uttama-Rahu and upon the Karkata lagna.

Guru rules Arudha lagna

Guru yuti lagnesha Chandra in creative bhava-5

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

yuvatipathi-7 Shani in lagna * one is strongly identified with social status = married status

Shani-1 atmakaraka yuvatipathi-7 + randhresha-8

Shani-1 occupies Kumbha 3rd navamsha = strong placement for a Writer .

Shani-1 rules Karakamsha bhava-8 = occult, forbidden, terror, psychological motives and other unseen agency which suddenly "erupts " into awareness, upheavals, sudden-forced changes, disasters, secrets, hidden things, fear (Shani) of the unknown. Mr. King writes "horror-fiction".

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

uttama-Rahu in earnings bhava-11 = ambition to achieve prestigious economic income

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Resulting from the 1-5 parivartamsha and the Guru-Chandra-Ketu cluster in bhava-5, Mr. King as been vocal in state and local politics. He owns a radio station (graha in 3) and expresses a liberal progressive environmentalist philosophy. A local grassroots initiative to encourage Stephen King to run for governor of Maine was developed in 2014.

The parivartamsha creates a virtual Chandra-Mangala yoga

Budha-ruled lagnesha Jyestha-Chandra -5 is also an auspicious placement for a writer.

Fortunate graha located in Pushkara-pada include

  • Mangala
  • Guru
  • Zukra
  • Ketu

Parivartamsha Kuja-Chandra can regenerate his life force periodically and he does have access to a wellspring of vitality (perhaps between bouts of Azlesa sullen depression).

As the story goes, Mrs. King worked for many years (Shani) in order to support their family via providing her gifted husband with the freedom to write.

Marriage conservatism:

  • yuvatipathi-7 Shani + Yogakaraka Mangala = in lagna = tremendously hard worker, strongly identified with his married status.

  • Mr. King's first child was born in 1970. Resistance to marriage may be attributed to the very strong Kuja Dosha generated by Mangala-1. However Mangala is much tempered by Shani-1 and Mr. King married the child's mother in 1971. He has remained married throughout the vicissitudes of poverty and wealth, brilliant fame and severe injury, raising a family, addiction and recovery, youth and old age.

Karkata lagna nativities generally prefer a life-mate elder to the native or if the spouse has qualities of exceptionally dutiful and work-regulated behavior.

yyuvatipathi-7 = Shani, suggesting a dedicated, humble, and hard-working spouse who is herself vibrantly creative due to Shani's proximity to the Yogakaraka vidyapathi-5 Kuja. Yet Shani puts duty before pleasure. (This is an especially great virtue in the social culture of Maine State.)

King's own navamsha uttama-Zukra suggests that eventually his wife will spring him out of the addictions trap. Indeed the story goes that King's family at his wife's instigation launched an 'intervention' which ultimately caused him to achieve lifetime sobriety.

yuvatipathi-7 in lagna = strongly personality-identified with the marriage bond. There is stability and security, if not always cheerful happiness, during the early years of marriage.

Accidents and Injuries

Drug and alcohol addiction - King and father too

  • King has written extensively of his former severe substance addictions, including but not limited to abuse of alcohol and cocaine. nichha-Zukra is a karaka for addictions

  • Mangala-1 rules 6th-from-Chandra also suggests both the capacity for emotionally aggressive addictive behaviors. However Mangala attains nichha-bhanga in King's nativity, which would predict that he would overcome the addiction and in so doing gain a virtuous strength. As the saying goes "first the nichha, then the bhanga"
