  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle had an extraordinary cluster of graha in 9th from Chandra-Meena-5 = Surya-yuti-Ketu + [Shukra-yuti-Budha] . CGD's father [Surya] was a military science instructor and prominent figure in contemporary weaponry discussions [Budha]. Dad was said to have been dominating and self-righteous, yet essentially correct in his criticisms.

  • Four graha located in 9th-from-Chandra = fortunate outcome based in capacity to handle invasions (Vṛścika-1). One of the reasons for the success of CdG'a career as a globally recognized leader (Shani-10) = Budha occupies 9th-from-Chandra. The Kumara = logical strategic planning.

  • POTUS-41 All the Best 1924-2018 George H.W. Bush [Surya-yuti-Budha] (3) was a chip off the old block carrying forward the agenda of his father, the political-finance mastermind Sen. Prescott Bush

Mangala residing in 9th-from-Chandra

Suggests a dynamic propulsion of the theoretical, ideological, or doctrinal beliefs into the world. Energetic acts of global humanism, with the scope and character of Kuja's actions depending on Mangala's ruler and conditions in the bhava.

The emotional relationship to the father is highly energized and likely to involve some competitive challenges. The mother's father may be an athlete, warrior, or other muscular competitive type of personality.

  • Macedon-King o-Megos 356-323 BCE Alexander-III was the son and maternal grandson of ancient warriors of Argeos.

Bantering Budha resides in 9th-from-Chandra


  • USA Sen-NY, Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton + [nīcha] Surya + Shukra * known for her reflective engagement with sacred doctrine of her faith community, Christian-Methodism as articulated by Methodism 1703-1791 John Wesley

9th-from-Chandra = bhava-11 social network. Budha activates 9th-from-Chandra , and Budha-yuti-Shukra-6


  • The grandfather of Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle was a high-society English artist [Shukra] who connoitered with royalty. C-D's father was a gifted artist who collapsed into severe alcoholism, mental illness, and epilepsy - and was institutionalized. The father's self-medicating addiction to alcohol thrust the family into dire circumstances. Yet Shukra-8 enjoys parivartamsha with Mangala-9 patriarchs. C-D received a top professional education and travelled the world [9]. While entirely forthright about his father's disease, he also printed his father's drawings in his own books and maintained an affectionate bond with his incarcerated dad, until the papa died.

Guru resides in 9th-from-Chandra

Multiple Patronages, Many Guides


From the perspective of a wifely figure, Guru dhava-karaka represents the first husband:

husband-1 is a great supporter, fulfills a patriarchal, priestly or professorial role in the marriage .

An auspicious and satisfying husband on the emotional level of relationships. The female is able to admire the male's wisdom, and see in him the best traits of her father and her maternal grandfather.

Brihaspati in 9th-from Chandra = 9th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the first husband. Partner evokes qualities of global travel, priesthood, patriarchal guidance

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 (1) * [nīcha] Guru-1 parivartamsha Shani-3 * by all accounts a happy marriage in which QV was deeply identified with her husband (Guru-1) particularly in his role as father to their nine children. [Guru fertility]

  • UK-Duchess of York 1959- Sarah Ferguson [4]

Guru in 9th-from-Chandra or Guru in 9th from indriya-lagna may be an indicator of multiple-patrons and many sources of patronage. The patrones may be father-figures of various types, such as religious authorities, step-fathers, professors, preachers, and other patriarchal figures undertaking guidance roles.

  • USA-Treasury 1755-1804 Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton's true father identity was perpetually in question. During his upbringing, his mother divorced and lived with a man who was either Alexander's father or his stepfather. Hamilton also acquired an influential patron in college who provided essential fatherly guidance for many years throughout Hamilton's emerging career.

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison * ISKON preacher, primary funding agent for missionary program

Guru in 9th-from-Chandra may indicate that one's mother has several significant father figures, and usually there are also several father-figures for the native as well.

  • de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton Guru-1 yuti Shukra in 9th-from-Chandra Arudra. Young Newton's father died before he was born, and his mother remarried twice. Although he was deeply attached to his mother and resented the stepfathers, Guru is a moneymaker ruler of 2-and-11 from the Kumbha indriya-lagna . The stepfathers and later several father-figure mentors in science and academics all proved a substantial help to him financially, increased by Guru-yuti-Shukra yogakaraka-1.

Guru in 9th-from-Chandra casts drishti upon Chandra, suggesting abundant fertility and numerous children

  • USA-Treasury 1755-1804 Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton had eight children before he died aged 49.

From the perspective of a husbandly figure , Shukra in 9th-from Chandra = 9th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the wifely-companion(s). Partner evokes qualities of global travel, wisdom, priesthood. wifely-companion is a moral teacher.

  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant + [nīcha] Budha. Grant was considered to have been exceptionally fortunate in his choice of a wife. Most of his contemporaries agreed that without Julia, he surely would have drunk himself to death long before the Civil War even began.

  • Julia Dent protected him from the ravages of alcoholism and demoralization from the carnage of the national fratricide. Her her post-war Whitehouse entertainments returned the spirit of the muse [Shukra] into the nation's capital during the deathly exhaustion following the burials and bankruptcies that followed the war.

Likes the world of theory, beliefs, principles of higher inquiry, theology, philosophy, humanistic perspective, dharma, worldview

Faith and Finance

  • Israel-PM 1898-1978 Our Strength Golda Meir * Shukra-Urisha in 9th-from-Chandra * with a faith-congregation network (sangha) that included communities in the USA, Soviet Union, western Europe, and the Middle East, PM Meir was a deal-maker and fundraiser extraordinaire.

Mother's father = 9th-from-Chandra

Shani occupies * 9th-from-Chandra

Mother's father * maternal grandfather

Conventional doctrine, common ideology, rigid and lawful paradigm of belief

Public Figures


Shani occupies the doctrinal, ideological, elder-respecting, old-faith, strict philosophies, punitive, scarcity-preaching 9th-from-Chandra

Emotional preference for catechisms, paradigms of belief, and faith-convictions that are older, more strict, more scarcity-oriented, more restrictive, more conventional, more punitive

Emotional preference for unchanging, rule-structured priesthoods, philosophies, worldviews, and beliefs

Other graha yuti-Shani can alter the conservatism and fear of Shani! Other graha here indicate a complex and potentially contradictory paradigm of philosophical, dogmatic belief.

  • Contempt 1934- animal-activist Brigitte Bardot [Shani-yuti-Rahu] * following marriage to the fourth husband = her Simha-6 = ultra-right anti-immigration ideologue ++ vigorous animal-rights activist

  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 assembly line Henry Ford + [nīcha] Shukra-yuti-Guru * conventional 19th-cen Euro-Christian moral tenets mixed with reincarnation * Ford's beliefs were contradictory, especially his anti-Semitism and his conviction that workers could not make their own decisions. He mainly believed in his own destiny and righteousness

Beholden to the father, the paternal grandfather, The priests , the pope, the philosophers , the panditari, the preachers, the proselytes, the pater-nostra, the patriarchy, the professors, the pujari

Father is an agent of the social structure, and giver of laws. (Again, check for other graha here.)

  • Oops 1981- entertainer Britney Spears suffered public outbreaks of mental illness (Chandra-yuti-Ketu and bhratru-pati-3 in 12, inter alia), writ large on the stage of news media. As the mother of two and figurehead of a musical empire, Ms. Spears was adjudged to be able to continue living independently under condition that she received ongoing medical treatment to prevent harm to herself and others. Her person and her estate came under medical and legal supervision. Shani in 9th-from-Chandra supports the arrangement that her businessman father (Surya-3) would be assigned as the lawful [Shani] authority over her person and her estate in an arrangement known as "conservatorship". Shani activates both Chandra security, stability and 2nd-from-Chandra, conservation, keeping, storage, finance, banking.

Some reduction of grandchildren and definitively emotional distance, resistance or negligence from the maternal father as well as from one's own father .

  • POTUS-pair-16 Illinois 1818-1882 Mary Todd Lincoln experienced the death of three of her four sons before they reached adulthood; thus her grandchildren were greatly diminished. Her mother died when little Mary was 6, and her father preferred his second wife, leaving Mary outside the sphere of affection. Her religious beliefs were the conventionalized Presbyterian dogma accepted by most of her ethnicity.

Either by their presence or by their absence,

Philosophical Study and Religious * worth-ship * worship become the primary instructional agents in the [akashic memory patterning] struggle to transform emotional ignorance into emotional wisdom.

  • Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Noble Maidens Catherine the Great prepared assiduously for her marriage (age 16) and future role as Empress of All Russias. The first step of her sanctification was to abandon her Lutheran catechism and become fully indoctrinated in the paradigm of belief of the Russian Orthodox Christian tradition. She learned the religious beliefs (9) and the Russian language at the same time, thus profoundly identifying herself (1) with the practices of the ruling bloodlines (Mesha). So long as she retained royal and political authority over the sacerdotal caste, Ekaterina was a staunch defender of the patriarchal priesthood.. Her dominance was ever contested Yet, she won every challenge. As a divinely sanctioned ruler, approved by the Archons, she utilized her supreme position within the Orthodox hierophancy to remove power from the priesthood and restore authority to the autocrat (herself).

Maternal grandfather (or the Mother's Religion) may have a distinguished social position as a paragon of social morality = doing all the Right Things.

Yet on the level of emotional relationship, the Mother's Religion = a task-master.

Mother's Religion (maternal grandfather) has some type of psycho-social limitation [Shani] often religious duties or the time-intensive demands of advanced philosophical study, which emotionally separates the grandfather from the native and is acutely felt by the Mother as well. Maternal grandfather may express a conformist, punitive social viewpoint.

From the perspective of the wifely-companion, Shani in 9th-from Chandra = 9th-from characteristics in the emotional relationship to the second husband. Partner evokes qualities of global travel, doctrinal philosophy.

Maternal grandfather may be physically present yet emotionally harsh or unavailable. Maternal grandfather may interfere and control (esp during Shani bhukti) with moralistic, authoritarian power.

  • Yet, the Maternal grandfather is burdened by his own heavy concerns in life.

  • Mother's Religion involves heavy ritual obligations

The Maternal grandfather's actual behavior of substituting material values for the expected higher religious or spiritual values (despite propaganda to the contrary) may easily cause the child to distrust the motives of all paternalistic authority figures such as priests, professors, and higher moral judges.

Difficulty in the relationship with overly conservative or formalized ceremonial religious practice. Preference for a more pragmatic or results-oriented spiritual teaching.

the native may reject or reduce the traditional social-religious rites of passage such as marriage or baptismal ceremonies, preferring only a minimal "civil ceremony" to meet government requirements. (If Rahu + Shani, the life ceremonies may be conducted in a foreign tradition.)

Grandchildren may become a burden unless Shani's lord is favorable.

Prognosis always improved if either Shani or Chandra is dignified by rashi or if either rules a kendra or a bhagya sthana. Shani-yuti-Rahu -or- Chandra-yuti-Rahu = amplified results.

RAHU resides in 9th-from-Chandra


Extraordinary [Rahu]conditions regarding the relationship with the Father-figures and Pulpiteers (9)

Rahu-style imposter-poseurs with a shimmering illusory smoky history may claim the role of the father, role of a 'spiritual father', or role of the mother's father. Their awesome display of the wisdom of understanding a conducted via the sacred teachings and the credenda is intended to be fascinating!

Professor Rahu approaches all situations with an opportunistic eye toward expedient use of environments that may advance His quest for privilege and power. In bhava-9, He utilizes the environments of humanism and divinity for His purposes.

Emotionally sensitive response to matters of doctrine.

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich * Newt was born to a 16-year-old mom and his birth father played a minimal role in his life. However, the powerful cluster of Rahu-Karkata yuti Shukra-Karkata yuti Guru-Karkata [uchcha] in 9th-from-Chandra suggests that matters of doctrine, theory, and belief came to hold the same importance in his life that a birth father (had one been available) would have held. NG undertook not one but two religious conversions. NG switched from his received Protesting Christian confession at birth, to a new Protesting sect, and finally to the credo of Roman-rite Catholicism. When converting to Roman-rite Catholicism, NG commented that he was attracted to the wise countenance of Pope Benedict * Papa(9).

  • Since Chandra-lagna is the base for counting marriages, the marvelous Karkata-cluster in 9th-from-Chandra would suggest that Mr. Gingrich's third marriage would be his most fulfilling. The same might be said for his three Confessions of Belief: third time is the charm.

Privilege-claiming or possessive desires expressed by the father (9) and maternal grandfather (9th-from-Chandra).

Father, maternal grandfather, moral guides, guru, priest, and professor are agents of social upset, challenge to cultural norms, and emotional risk.

  • Father, mother's father, and certain religious teachers may have exogamous marriages (outside of their social class), marry under taboo circumstances, or have some variety of exotic social relationship.

Often there is some breakage to cultural boundaries regarding sexual practice on the part of the father and father-figure personality, such as but not limited to, marital infidelity.

If the graha are favorable, Rahu in 9th-from-Chandra simply indicates a second marriage for the father which may be entirely noble but naturally is still upsetting to the native.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates lost his respected mother to terminal breast cancer shortly after his own wedding ceremony in 1994. When WHG's elderly father remarried; the stepmother relationship was cordial.

Generally, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 does not benefit from the personally ambitious, morally disruptive [Rahu] behavior of the father and may deeply resent it

  • Rahu in 9th-from-Chandra

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie has expressed ongoing resentment toward her father's marital infidelity and the disruption it caused to her mother and family

  • King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson * expressed ongoing resentment toward the physical beatings and emotional abuse delivered by his father upon the Jackson sons

9th-from-Chandra also represents one's emotional relationship to religious dogma and the tenets of one's own belief system.

Emotional engagement with social processes indoctrination and delivery of wisdom teachings, as well as need for relationship with religious teachers, reaction to the personalities of Guru figures, rabbi, imam, lama, pandita, religious scholars of all stripes.

  • Emotional upheavals caused by deep upwelling of subconscious desire follow the lineage of the mother's philosophical and religious life. The mother's relationship to religious priesthood was unsettled or problematic in some way (according to Rahu's rashi) which expressed its passionate dangers through the mother's father.

  • this may be a simple, subconscious background effect in Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 's life, but if the ruler of 9th-from-Chandra is empowered or there are other activated graha in the bhava which is 9th-from-Chandra, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 may spend a lifetime engaged with tantric challenges to the established religious priesthood.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 is likely to pursue a subconsciously motivated religious path which includes acquisition of barrier-bending, taboo-twisting ritual knowledge and assumption of controversial but intriguing boundary-challenging types of priestly roles (such as wisdom philosopher in a foreign cultural belief system.)

  • When Rahu occupies 9th-from-Chandra, there may be a life relationship with exotic belief systems (outside one's cultural of origin), a willingness to challenge or disregard the conventional religious rules of one's upbringing,

  • Surprising ability of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-9 to assume religious priest or teacher-guide roles in culturally exotic ceremonial settings.

Emotional affinity for universities, temples, and the earthly presence of the Divine is volatile and inconsistent.

One is capable of extraordinary disruption through religious wisdom, and the outcome is indeed a global (9) advance in wisdom (9). Yet, the personality is exotic and the preacher-teacher role is ambitiously unstable.

Dissociative Ketu resides in 9th-from-Chandra

POTUS-10 Annex Texas 1790-1862 John Tyler * adherent of Jeffersonian Democracy, in which the separation [Ketu] of Church and State is paramount

POTUS-28 The State 1856-1924 Woodrow Wilson * although his father was a major figure in protesting-Christian discourse, Wilson demurred from religious philosophy overall

France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle + [Shukra-yuti-Budha] + [Surya-yuti-Ketu] (1 personality, appearance, embodiment)

Waste Land 1888-1965 publisher T.S. Eliot

Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein

Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci (4)

Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros (2)

Superman 1952-2004 tetraplegia Christopher Reeve

Syria-Pres 1965- ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad


POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon (12)

POTUS-pair-39 Caregiving 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter (9)

VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore (1)

"O" 1954- multimedia Oprah Winfrey

Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna + Guru

Generally Ketu in 9th-from-Chandra would indicate a degree of absenteeism, disregard, or vacuity on the part of the father.

9th-from-Chandra also indicates the mother's father (one's maternal grandfather). This paternal figure may be distant, disengaged, or discombobulated.

In addition, one may be disinclined toward taking guidance from doctrine, ideology, theory, or schemes of grand principle. One may prefer instead to engage more with the patter of immediate discourse and context (Rahu being in 3rd from Chandra) rather than mapping meaning back to any specific catechism.

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Mémoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle * a remarkable cluster of graha in 9th-from-Chandra (1 personality, appearance, embodiment) = Surya-yuti-Budha + Ketu-yuti-Shukra. This bhava-1 cluster represents his beloved third child Anne de Gaulle, who was born with Down Syndrome [Ketu] and died of pneumonia her age 20.

  • POTUS-pair-37 Watergate 1912-1993 Pat Ryan Nixon was raised nominally Roman-rite Catholic, but she married a Quaker, and catechism of belief was not part of her public profile. Rather PRN was a relentless "stumper" for her husband's political career, giving speeches and writing letters, showing an intense focus on immediate discourse rather than principle. PRN's maternal grandfather was not present in her life but may have had astral influence (Ketu-12).

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci famously supported the fascist ideology of Italy-Dictator 1883-1945 Fascist Benito Mussolini . Yet, EP facilitated the escape of Mussolini's daughter from the Italian death squads. Ketu in 9th-from-Chandra is ideologically uncommitted at the emotional level.

  • VPOTUS-pair Music Censorship 1948- Tipper Gore * father abandoned the family when Tipper was a toddler (1)

  • Open Society 1930- capitalist George Soros recounted a strong friendship with his father due to Surya-11-Karkata. However, Ketu in 9th-from-Chandra does represent GS' family upbringing in a non-observant [Ketu] Jewish lineage (2) and his eschewing of traditional financial methods in favor of no-boundaries Ketu banking.

The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Inner Peace : The Essential Life and Teachings

"The state of mind of a Buddhist practitioner should be stable, and should not be subject to too many conflicting events.

Such a person will feel both joy and pain, but neither will be too weak or too intense.

  • Stability is developed through discipline.

The heart and mind become more full of energy, more resolute,

  • and therefore less susceptible to being blown about by outside events.

Deep within the human being abides the wisdom that can support him or her in the face of negative situations.

In this way, events no longer throw him because he is holding the reins.

Similarly, when something good happens it is also possible to rein it in.

Taking the reins is the key to happiness.

  • In Tibet we have a saying: "If you are beside yourself with joy, tears are not far behind."

This shows how relative what we call joy and pain are."
