BPL commentary: high forehead. the condition of Guru will considerably affect the outcome

"... high-strung and nervous in temperament .

They are not very strong constitutionally.

They are rather grave and serious in demeanor

  • and are more interested in the discussion of serious topics than in trivial matters.

they belong to the Mental Group and are by no means orthodox ,

  • preferring to arrive at their beliefs through a process of logical reasoning."

Writing and Publishing

Ruler of 3 in 3rd-from-3rd while strong graha occupy 3 and 5 is a pattern found in the best writers. Observe the writer's powerhouse: 3-Budha-Mesha-3 with Mangala-Mithunaya-5 in 3rd-from-3 * creating a parivartamsha yoga exchange of ruler of 3 in 5 and ruler of 5 in 3.

Tagore-Thakur wrote countless numbers of songs beloved by Bangla denizens, poems read and studied worldwide, and was certainly the most celebrated literary figure in India during his lifetime and beyond.

Zukra + uttama-Surya-yuti-Budha-3 * Rulers of 7, 9, 4, 5, and 8 occupy communicative bhava-3

  • Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore * Thakur * was a literary genius and worldwide cultural evangelist

10th navamsha Meena higher teachings.

Karakamsha = radical lagnesha Kumbha, while Kumbha receives a fierce drishti of ruler Shanicarya. A singularly disciplined personality, undeterred by center-stage political glamour (Shani-Simha resists political royal or celebrity entitlements).

Arudha Lagna bhava-9 philosophy

Surya + Zukra-yuti-Budha = charismatic (Surya) + handsome, financially privileged, and artistic (Zukra) + literary (Budha)


Despite the positive auspice of the parivartamsha yoga, Mangala-yuti-Ketu does occupy the the hyper-mental 3rd from Budha and thus some mental agitation leading to a nervous depression could be predicted during Budha periods and Mangala periods.

3rd-from-Chandra is Vrishabha ruled by combust Zukra, who joins into the dynamic but impatient bhava-3 Mesha. Indicating reduced impulse control and a sometimes unstable home, paired with world-wandering.

Guru-Karkata -6 * uttama parivartamsha Chandra-Revati-2

Many emotionally-deep conflicts including a primary illicit relationship within the family. Emotional experience is enriched and expanded; treasuries of the family (2) via the servitude of others (6) indicated as his exceptionally wealthy family obtained their hoard from landholding and the lands worked by tenant farmers.

Chandra-Revati songs and songwriting, familiar-face, folk rhythms


For the Kumbha radical lagna, Brishaspati is a generator of significant financial well-being. Guru-Karkata * uttama * parivartamsha Chandra-Meena-2 indicates the distinctively wealthy conditions of his family of origin, increased by Tagore's own Rahu-11 ruled by Guru.

lagnesha Shani, marriage

Shani-Simha * Shani-7* dig-bala ruled by Surya in bhava-3 suggests loyalty in marriage while the spouse lives, and ruler of 7 in 9th-from-7th shows the fortunate, confident, sibling-like nature of the marriage.

However Shani as vyayapathi-12 suggests some private disagreement.

Shani Mahadasha age 96-115 did not afflict the dense-Earth lifespan.

In marriage, 7th from Chandra-2 also suggests that the spouse is a secretive or camouflaged person.

3 life-mates:

Zukra + Chandra-yuti-Budha = Kadambari Devi, Mrinalini Devi, and Victoria Ocampo (Vijaya)

Guru rules Rahu-11

Ambitious Rahu's ruler the atmakaraka Guru-Karkata -6 * uttama, for all of Guru's positive expansive auspice, occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Dhanushya-Rahu-11. As a distinguished Bangla poet and patron of many needy local villages, as well as a global missionary of liberal education, Thakur-Tagore had to manage an unbalanced group of desires, abilities, and potentials.

Rahu Mahadasha

Rahu-11 is a superb location. Rahu casts a powerful graha drishti into 3-5-7, amplifying nine bhava-pathi: Surya Budha, Zukra, Mangala-yuti-Ketu, Shani-Simha.

Surya-uttama ruler of 4th-from-4th yuti bandhesha Zukra.

Surya mahadasha produced a furious passion for education, celebration of the ethnic roots and cultures, and engagement with Arya nobility of spirit.

Uttama-Surya provides exceptionally vibrant "roots" attachment to the land and its ethnic settlers, albeit one's role is aristocratic and not emotionally sympathetic so much as gloriously regal.

Yogakaraka Zukra-3

Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha = combust. Most of Zukra's independent power to harmonize and accommodate the interests of writing has been burned away by the noble glamorous, transformative, self-referential uttama-Surya-3. Zukra-3 connotes a preference for sisterly relationships.

Mangala in bhava-5 Mithunya* parivartamsha Budha-Meza

Budha explanation, description, instruction * Budha rules radical lagna AND navamsha lagna

Swakshetra Budha in navamsha-1 signifies the polymath, an international literati, commercial businessman, conversationalist and translator.

Also Tagore's wife was very young (age ten) at time of their ritual marriage and also she was twelve years his junior = more consistent with youthful Kumara in navamsha lagna. Kanya in 7th-from-Chandra also indicates a very young maiden and conditions of servitude for the spouse.
