Earthbody-Exit 29-Sep-1902 (age 62)

novelist of social mobility and class conflict , social discontent, exploitation, bigotry, violence, abuse of power; themes of political-social change and scandal including his masterpiece * Germinal

Emile Zola was a literary genius who was able to portray the social conflicts of 19th century France in a brilliant narrative. His writing is as engaging today as it was when he first wrote it. Zola told stories about the lives of citizens during the Second French Empire.

Emile Zola wrote copious long novels but these were published as short "serials " in the magazines of the day (similar to Charles Dickens) so that readers received only a brief, digestible episode with each publications issue.

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.

"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 comment:

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 manipulative skills including verbal acuity in public speaking, literary publishing, business administration, and handcraft.

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 parlay into unkindness or uncleanness ... only a rather grumpy intolerance for people and things irrelevant to their task.
