For Visaka births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Radhika, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..
High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.
Vṛścika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies. They also work with explosive-expansive forces such as dynamite and lightning.
Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Viśākha-Rādhā
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 97.
"... Aggressiveness and impatience.
These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.
They are very active but not popular,
they are very proud
their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.
they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,
Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."
Dennis Hopper at Cannes 2008

significant alcohol and drug-related misbehavior along with domestic violence behaviors, yet never convicted of crimes, never imprisoned.

Hopper was famously married five times. Hoppers married life was characterized by a series of criticizing, accusing divorces. After a bhukti of infatuation, he seemed to perceive each of his five spouses as a predatory thief (6) in wifely disguise (7).
Bhava-7 hosts the extraordinarily creative energies of Mangala-Surya-Budha-7 and Bhava-7 receives the penetrating, transformative optimism of Guru-Vṛścika-1
Marriage issues + rogesha Mangala in 7 along with randhresha-8 Budha in 7 suggests many arguments and undisclosed activities.
Marriage animosities = vindictive toward each of his five wives
Awareness of his impending death did not reduce the virulence of his animosity toward the spouse nor the verbosity [Budha] and aggressiveness [Mangala] of his self-elevating accusations of abuse (6th from Rahu) toward her.
duro-karaka (endurance) *jara-karaka [Jahre, years]
OUTCOMES - SHANI
rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
[passion for inspirational values]
OUTCOMES - RAHU-Mula bhava-2
Rahu-Mula is prone to the thrill of all-or-nothing risk for things put in the mouth = food, drink, medicines. The family lineage is typically an ambitious pathway, noted for cultural mixing doctrines, ideologies, and beliefs. Usually a dramatic cycle of rise-and-fall.
Capitalization, Voice-Face, Rahu-challenge to rigid social practices in finance, politicsmūla], worthiness, truth. Fascinating speakers, cleverly sonorous values-based speech.
Dennis Hopper's story involves a major narrative of drug-and-alcohol addiction, five marriages [2, remarriage] and a legacy of fine-arts photography-with-painting. Rahu's ruler Guru in bhava-1 shows a profound identity with annihilating risk, visual values, and remarriages.
Rahu in bhava-2 seeks privilege via important - often risky - cultural-mixing roles in evaluation, assessment, language, memory, knowledge, voice-speech-song, face-genetics, heritage, tradition, family lineage, food, seeds, herds-hoards, storage-stories-history, libraries, museums, databases, collections, banking, reserves, preservation, assets, capital wealth.
Professor Rahu gives effect of Guru-1-Vṛścika ruler of drama (5) and treasuries (2). Hopper seemed obsessed [Rahu] and deeply identified (Guru-1) with his treasures. He designed complex legal contracts that would prevent his wives whether ex- or present from getting an unfair share of his loot. (rogesha-6 parivartamsha yuvati-pati-7 in 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu)
Career = Iconic Rebel
Rahu in Mula in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra indicates a salient career in matters of face, voice, speech patterns, eyes, history, languages. Mula gives the "rebel without a cause" persona
Marriage 6th-from-Rahu * five marriages
6th from Rahu = bhava-7 marriage. [Surya-yuti-Budha] + Mangala in 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu . Rahu amplifies His ruler Guru-1-Vṛścika. A confident and brilliant personality with some very challenging marriage situations.
The primary complaint in all of his marriage has apparently been spousal entitlement to share his valuable collections (Rahu-2) such as his paintings and financial assets driven by a subconscious expectation (12th from Ketu) of being robbed by the spouse.
Hopper famously married and acrimoniously divorced five times. He struggled publically with recurring narrative [Budha] of inability to trust that his spouses were properly handling the shared wealth of the marital union. Toward the end of his life, as his wealth grew, so did his chronic and gnawing mistrust of the values-equity in his marriages (Shukra-wealth in 6-distrust).
He hired lawyers and filed criminal complaints (6) against his spouses until the day of his death. All five of his wives outlived him.
Naturally, if challenging graha should occupy or own the bhava which is 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu, the negative results can be intensified. Particularly inner graha * Surya, Chandra, Budha, Shukra * are afflicted when they occupy the adversarial 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu.
kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
