Leonardo da Vinci

Surya-Mesha * bright center of competition and conquest [uchcha]

/ I am / self-centric identity formed by thought-streams emitting from The Series of Suns

/ I am / First Arrived, an Inventor, a Champion, a Pioneer

Qualities of Mesha rashi define the environment wherein one seeks a Visible, Central Role

The attention-seeking personal genius [Surya] seeks be in the center of

  • championship, primacy, priority, being first

  • pure and noble action

  • original culture or sourced bloodlines

  • invention and innovation

  • radically new ideas, new social movements, new territory

  • high-vitality, forceful, initiating movement

  • conquest and domination

When uncomfortably placed, Surya-Mesha may signal a certain amount of physical conceit. One may radiate the "right action".

Surya's ego-membrane expression depends on the kundali characteristics of competitive, ambitious, athletic Kuja.

May be extremely selfish, or brilliantly heroic, or both.

Moral intelligence is extremely strong due to wide capacity for interior certainty and true confidence. (Sushuma nadi = wide open.)

In cultures that worship royal humans as exclusive carriers of Divine Energy, Surya-Mesha may indicate the divinely royal scion

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito [Bharani-1] [Surya-yuti-Shukra] [Surya-6 parivartamsha Mangala-10]

  • The Mirror 1895-1986 theosophy Jiddu Krishnamurti [Krittika-1] JK was promoted as the New World Savior and various other eschatological monikers, Yet due to his Ketu in 10th-from-Chandra, JK walked away from this role - calling it artificially fabricated.

Potential negative expression occurs when [uchcha] Ravi = weak, either in a dead degree (zero or 30) or due to hostile drishti.

For example, if [uchcha] Surya is oppressed via drishti from a strong Shani.

The dysfunctional outcome = psychological hero-complex, wherein the native becomes deluded into believing that one's own personal [Surya] thought, feeling, or action of the moment is a perfect expression of the universally [Shani] righteous truth.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler [Aśvini-3] + [Budha-yuti-Surya-uchcha] + [Shukra-yuti-Mangala] = self-righteous Mesha-Ravi receives the lawful-consequences glance of strongly folk-ethnic defender [Aśleṣa Shani-1]

Delusion and disorder related to egoistic narcissistic anxiety and self-righteousoppression of the rights of others can result.

  • If one feels love, the world should also feel the exact same sort of love at that moment.

  • If one feels anger, the world becomes one's enemy and the noble righteous warrior must fight.

  • If one feels moral indignation, surely that ego-centric feeling is the golden key to universal truth.

A dysfunctional [uchcha] Surya can be hard to live with because the native confidence does not extend all the way to the divine origin of the human genius.

  • One gets stuck in the concept of Self at the Center.

Shani-Mesha 's consciousness is focused very tightly upon the physical body.

  • Surya-Aśvini = May be a divinely inspired physician or athlete.

  • If physician, often a surgeon.

  • Medical genius for blood, muscles, and the human head.

SuryaKumbh_RosaRubi.jpgBrightly Visible public behavior

psychologically driven by childhood memories of praise for heroism and noble actions .

Strongly decisive and receives much praise.

May be less inclined toward forming complex relationships. The focus of this Learning Pathway is powerfully vested in the Radiant Self.

Keeps one's own counsel. few colleagues or advisers. Marriage is somewhat one-sided . Needs a passive, follower type of spouse.

Can be aristocratically self-isolating

May be unwilling to accept common human company, due to visceral intolerance for human weakness .

Prone to varying degrees of narcissistic personality disorder, in which a Perfect false self splits from the imperfect natural self, and the natural self is rejected.

In extreme cases, may fall prey to delusions of grandeur, racial superiority, and "Aryan" elitism.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler [Aśvini-3] + [Budha-yuti-Surya-uchcha] + [Shukra-yuti-Mangala] AH was violently abused as a child by his father. Not only Surya-10 but also a charismatically destructive complex of supporting dominators = Arya-graha.

Strives for the Personal Best. Life is a growth-challenge. Loves competitions (including war) and simply must win. Capable of extraordinary physical achievements if Kuja is well-placed.

The military general type.

Tactical and strategic intelligence, oriented 100% toward winning the war.

Requires independence, not cooperative when in a leadership role.

Dominant social personality, unless harmed by drishti of Shani from Karkata, Tula, or Kumbha.

  • (Drishti from Shani/Tula = passive-aggressive partnership, claiming to support the union Yet, acting from raw self-interest.)

Very independent, praiseworthy self-image = Champion, Survivor, Title-holder, Best. Innovative (Mesha)at a genius [Surya] level, if Professor Kuja is strong

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson [Aśvini-3] + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] Surya ruled by [atmakaraka] karkata-Kuja-1

  • Totem and Taboo 1856-1939 psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud [Bharani-4] [Atmakaraka] + [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] ++ Kuja-11 drishti into [uchcha] Surya-yuti-Rahu-6 = outsized level of self-confidence in medical practice

  • Out on a Limb 1934- drama-esoterica Shirley MacLaine [Aśvini-4] [Surya-yuti-Kuja] SM = an award-winning dramatic entertainer and dancer for six decades, then a successful writer of books on occult subjects (Surya-Mangala-5, 3rd-from-3rd). She gave thousands of interviews and was a noted liberal political activist [uchcha-Surya]. Her views both mystical and political were highly personalized, which she emphasized. Her signature attitude is "personal perception trumps mainstream viewpoint" and her confidence in self-promotion never waned.

Non-collaborative and interpersonally adversarial as a general trait."My way or the highway." Not a teacher or a leader by nature, but may provide direction to an organization through the characteristic personalized decision-making.

The organization may follow if it decides so, but the autocratic leader [uchcha-Surya] does little to achieve consensus before acting.

  • POTUS-33 Trial and Hope 1884-1972 Harry Truman [Bharani-4] [in karmasthana-10] was known as an autocratic decision maker with little patience for counter-arguments

Leads others via personal role-modeling rather than via counsel or instruction."Do as I do, not as I say." Self-determination = essential to life. Can be wily and intractable, even tyrannical in partnerships. Good marriage with a passive, accommodating partner.

Social role in relationship to athletics and competitions, but it depends on Mars whether oneself chooses to become an athlete. Typically, the sports competitions of youth mature into the business and power competitions of adulthood.

Always out in front, challenging (not supporting) others toward better, faster, smarter, higher-earning performance. Cannot tolerate weakness .

To see a powerful, intolerant, blindingly self-righteous, charismatic Surya-Mesha in action, observe the shocking effects of Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler 's politico-military command. Budha-yuti-Surya-[uchcha] [dik-bala] + [Shukra-yuti-Mangala] -svakshetra-10.

Every graha in Hitler's radix supports Surya, including"pioneering" svakshetra war-monger Kuja-Mesha in randhra-bhava =catastrophic destruction. Even Shani helps by forcing restraint, which builds essential discipline over time.

Powerful leadership position of Surya-Mesha

Less militaristic without Mangala

More militarized and warlike with Mangala

Father-karaka Surya

Self-identified father-figure. Father-figure is not always the bio-dad. Father-figure may be the grandfather, mother's brother, male religious authority, or other dominant male. The father's character is notably competitive, pursuing, and individualistic.

Often an athlete, hunter, or politician; also drivers, engineers, and those who use their body as the prime engine toward success. His need to receive ego-membrane praise through success in his work is very important to him

  • NASCAR 1951-2001 motorsports Dale Earnhardt [Bharani-1]+ [Mangala-yuti-Budha] [11] DE's regionally famous eponymous father was a high-speed automobile track racer, who gave his name to his son but also competed against his son

  • Dale Jr. aspired to compete in the same dangerous rural sport. Yet, by his own account, young Dale was told to get out of the way so that his father could get the glory. (also Rahu-9, ambitious father)

The extreme negative pole of an over-charged [uchcha-Surya] can be abusively selfish. Typically however, the father is a warrior in some profession, self-identified as a winner, going into battle every day.

Naturally, the father has reduced interest in bystanders and non-competitors, therefore Generally, the father has less interest in young children except when he must compete with the children to obtain the attentions of the mother.

Father generally becomes more interested in children when they are old enough to compete and enjoy sport. If such an extreme [uchcha] Ravi father interprets the child as a threatening competitor, he may try to annihilate the child.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler [Aśvini-3] + [Budha-yuti-Surya-uchcha] + [Shukra-yuti-Mangala] during his childhood was frequently , severely beaten by an abusive father. Threatened and belittled, Hitler developed an extreme case of shame-covering Narcissism the self-medicating power disease of the abusively dominated.

of course, there is much more detail involved in constructing the full profile of the father.

At minimum it is necessary to consider the characteristics of Surya-yuti-Guru + dharma bhava + Dharmesha-9 + 9th-from-Chandra + pitri-karaka + D-12

all of these indicators should point to a similar value before any conclusion regarding the character of the father is obtained. Surya-Mesha-12

Bandhesha-4 in 12 = Surya in exaltation = a radiant placement for all dealings with invisible, cloistered, enclosed, or isolated environments such as monasteries, dormitories, hotels, artist's creative studio, private rooms, and all types of imaginative, Other Worldly place.

Surya-Mesha-12 adds a political, dramatic dimension to the 12th-bhava rhythms. As the natural center of attention, one radiates the bright light of charismatic intelligence within the enclosed realms.
