Tends to produce a wandering father-figure. Pragmatically, often this dad is a wanderer by trade such as a bus driver, air pilot, boat captain.

  • UK Princess of Wales 1982- photographer Kate Middleton = father air pilot

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison= father bus conductor

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt = father truck driver

Scattering of the energy and subconscious expectation of abandonment by the Father.

For women, additionally, disconnection and disinterest in the male persona represented mainly by the father-figure.

Tends toward exaggeration [Rahu] of the forces opposing the father.

Dispersion of the Father's Focus

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie was famously alienated [Ketu] from her philandering dramatist father [Surya]. However, communicative Budha added to the Ketu-Surya complex does permit some conversation.

  • POTUS-pair-06 Adams Family 1775-1852 Louisa Johnson Adams * Ketu+Surya + [Budha-yuti-Shukra] 6) lived a wandering, refuge-seeking life due to the fragmentation of her father's business + political behaviors. Surya-yuti-Ketu-6. Dad was alternately financially successful then bankrupted, tending toward losses related to wars. In retrospect, it was acknowledged that Dad suffered from continuous -- and toward his life-end -- devastating mental health issues as well as poor financial judgment (Ketu yuti Shukra). Dad's lack of direction caused the family to shift from USA to France to England and back to USA.. He suffered a persistent mental illness which was likely genetic. Louisa herself endured severe melancholia (depression). Probably continuing this strain, her two eldest sons died in their 20's of alcoholism and suicide

  • Telepathy 1880-1949 esoterica Alice Bailey claimed autobiographically that she always knew her father did not like her. She remained alienated from his affections until he died of tuberculosis (Ketu-Mithuna-3 + Surya-Budha) when young Alice was nine years old. Mrs. Bailey produced three daughters early in her first marriage and quickly became a single mother who had full parental authority absent any male parent. She remained a single parent until her daughters were raised, and remarried only when assured that a second husband would not become a male co-parent.

For men, additionally, disconnection and disinterest in the conventional male social roles. May be able to take on surface characteristics of all genders.

Helpful placement for a dramatic actor, who benefits from Ketu's no-boundaries free-entry into theatrical [Surya] radiance.

Ketu grants dissolution of barriers that would otherwise prevent a single human being from hosting multiple personalities.

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie

  • Second Sex 1908-1986 social theory Simone de Beauvoir + Budha * instrumental in dissolving the gender barriers preventing women from achieving economic and social progress

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts + Budha-11 [Surya-11 parivartamsha Shukra-9]

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt + [Budha-yuti-Mangala] + Chandra

General disinterest toward celebrity and politics. Lack of self-direction. If talented, such a person is easy to manage and accepts 'handling' without much resistance.

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison (3) despite a powerful Rahu-Simha-9, Harrison eschewed celebrity exposure and in later years stopped performing in order to have a quieter

Generally, a healthy sense of the basic foolishness of the attention-seeking ego.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt + [Budha-yuti-Mangala] + Chandra ** famously said about the dignity of his personality " I am a grown man who wears makeup to work."

Pleasant and amenable most of the time.

A masculine nativity may be somewhat distanced from the glory of fatherhood, and will not exaggerate that glamour, although one may perform the quieter parenting roles just fine if the bandesha-4 is stable.

Female is somewhat distanced or apathetic toward the father-figures in her life. She may hold low expectations of their ability to experience true confidence. These father-figures may in her view lack faith in their ability to engage (chidrakarakaKetu) with the adult father-husband roles (Ravi).

however, she herself may be entirely capable and not actually need father-figure support if her Chandra is strong.

  • POTUS-pair-11 Polk Place 1803-1891 Sarah Childress Polk was considered a significant political influence upon her husband POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James K. Polk. Her Chandra-9 shows both ideological and political acumen. Ketu + Surya + Shukra in political Simha-2 suggests that she did not hold most politicians [Surya] in high esteem. Ketu-2 also caused criticism of her values since hypocritically she was a Christian proselyte yet owned many slaves. Her father was a wealthy agricultural slave-owner as well; it appears that she unquestioningly [Ketu] inherited his lineage beliefs.

Skepticism and doubt toward actors, politicians, entertainers, gamers, celebrities, royalty, glitterati, and great speculators.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin although an adviser to Russia's royal family, Rasputin reputedly mocked them too. He made comedy of their weakness, indecisiveness and superstition which were in Rasputin's view decrepit compared to the hearty peasant stock from which he hailed

Apathy toward the social ego; toward royal or celebrity glamour; toward charismatic success.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's father, or he dislikes or disregards the native. Distrust of the divine intelligence, and of male authority figures in general.


  • Telepathy 1880-1949 esoterica Alice Bailey * AB wrote in her Autobiography " My father did not care for me...our father's resentment over our existence, particularly, for some reason, over mine."

One may be unable to fully connect with the father. Also unable to fully disconnect from the father.

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie Voight * dissociated from her famous actor-father, Jon Voight

Even after paternal death or a public declaration of separation, one longs for fulfillment of the paternal presence.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship with the father , and with all men who are actor-performers, gamer-speculators, or self-aggrandizing in nature.

Often the father-figure suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the adult relationships, particularly parenting.

A deep and ineffable sense of loss regarding the father, who seems to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control. A longing for the imagined satisfaction of completed union with the fantasized morally courageous and honest father.

Inability to register a deep sense of personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Surya: creative intelligence, speculative winnings, individual genius, power to channel divine truth, gamesmanship, artistic and theatrical performance.

Political doubt. Unsure about power boundaries. Incoherent political behavior.

May be extraordinarily lucky due to absence of limitations upon confidence, but one experiences deep ambivalence about the lasting meaning or inherent value of one's own creative empowerment..

Native is a positive, slightly eccentric person with a pernicious tendency to promote philosophical ideals which one neither understands nor believes. Although constantly seeking the Divine, does not clearly apprehend the light of truth. Tends to feel depressed in the presence of highly charismatic persons.

Psychically absorptive heart [Surya].

If sparkling Surya is strong, one may accept iconic positions in politics and theatre. If one becomes famous, there is limited ego-attachment to the celebrated position and its privileges. Ambivalence toward kingship, fatherhood, games, politics, and royalty.

When Surya by its nature in the Jyotishavidya nativity

creates notoriety or fame, one uses the energy of celebrity charisma and personal magnetism to further a host of non-egotistic [Ketu] and perhaps noble [Surya] ideals

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts + Budha-11 * Surya -11 parivartamsha Shukra-9

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison * Surya activates Simha-Rahu-9, promoter of the Hare Krishna religious program

  • UK-King 1948- Charles-3

If Surya is weak, access to divine intelligence may be disconnected or disoriented, resulting in a tendency toward lack of compassion and disregard for those who seek en light enment.

If Surya is strong, may be dedicated to the regal, autocratic and brilliant delivery of spiritual radiance significantly disconnected from social structures and conventional relationships.

Collapsing Ketu often obscures or even obliterates boundaries, so that matters ruled by Ketu's co-graha or by Ketu's planetary ruler may suffer from confusion or blurring of boundaries.

  • My Sweet Lord 1943-2001 Beatle George Harrison [Surya activates Rahu-9] ++ [Surya-yuti-Ketu-Kumbha-3]. Increased by the religious significations of lagnesha Guru-7 in 10th-from-Chandra, Mr. Harrison was a devoted promoter of ISKCON beliefs. In particular, he emphasized the redemptive and remedial practice of a particular portfolio of sacred mantra. Ketu However, altered his center-stage offerings. In the 1970's, the fans of Beatle-Harrison paid for concert tickets expecting to hear the love ballads [Simha] and counter-culture lyrics which had promoted Beatle-Harrison to worldwide celebrity. Rather, finding himself adored[Surya] by thousands of fans, Harrison decided to re-program (Ketu-3) their captive attention toward long sessions of mantra-chanting. The audience had paid to see a charismatic entertainment figure and his artistic works (Rahu-Simha-9 mutual drishti Surya-3). They were entirely disenchanted [Ketu] with this incoherent [Ketu] misappropriation [Rahu] of their expectations. Many demanded refunds [Ketu]. Having dissolved the boundaries between the personal and the professional, Mr. Harrison found himself disconnected [Ketu] from his performing career, and abandoned [Ketu] by both his fans and his entertainment promoters.
