Communist Dictator of Cuba 1959-2008

Fidel Castro


Fidel Castro's birth date and time are somewhat controversial.

official data from

= 13 Aug 1926 near Birán, Cuba.

Birth location in Cuba's Oriente district is not controversial. The date and timing of this rural homebirth to his mother, a teenage [15] kitchen maid, is open to question. Adding to the date uncertainty, Castro's wealthy but non-literate father was not married to his teenage mom when Fidel was born; the father denied parentage until Fidel registered for school at age 8.

As a public figure, Castro has been the subject of journalistic inquiry for decades. The present nativity reflects a birth timing for the officially provided birthdate of 13-Aug-1926 that can accommodate the biographical data points within a principled Jyotisha argument.

Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities


Aśleṣās * Uraga * Azreshasha * Hydra * Aayilyam * Bhujamaghabha

BPL commentary

For Aśleṣa births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Uraga, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

Budha-ruled Aśleṣās are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators. Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Aśleṣā have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing [Budha] in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place. Hydra-born are natural environmentalists who prefer conversations about parenthood, ritual worship and holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. Depending upon the condition of parental Chandra, Aśleṣa fathers may bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their sentimental audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, the Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that nourishment can continue and ethnic customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Aśleṣās-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles. They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśleṣa-Naga.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

"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."

One of Dad's kitchen servants became Fidel Castro's mother Chandra in Hasta.

Fidelito Castro was named after Fidel Pino Santos, a financially privileged politician from the Oriente-district and a close friend of Don Ángel.

The Castro children remember their father as a beneficent rich man, owner of a sugar plantation who looked after the welfare of its workers. Dad was also remembered as a man of extraordinarily violent temper. Both traits he appears to have passed to son Fidel.

Mom = Lina Ruz González. An unmarried [Kanya] kitchen maid [Kanya] in the plantation home of dad Ángel Castro y Argiz.

After Lina Ruz had had borne him seven children, Sr. Angel Castro divorced his first wife Maria Castro and married Lina.

Even after his parents had legally married, FC carried the social stigma of illegitimacy leading to the shame-driven condition Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Aśleṣa cannot relinquish control. "My vocation is the revolution. I am a revolutionary, and revolutionaries do not retire."

  • Castro stubbornly remained dictator of Cuba despite dissension in the ranks and numerous attempts to unseat him.
  • Faced with severe health issues in old age, he passed the autocracy to his brother Raoul with whom he enjoyed a very close relationship Chandra in classroom-3 , reflecting the typical narcissistic bond between brothers of the same mother.

A man of contradictory nature

  • FC began his quest for power as a dissident. Yet, he was reviled in many parts of the world as a ruthless dictator, shameless liar impoverisher, imprisoner, and murderer of dissidents
  • Nevertheless, many of his own people hailed Fidel Castro as a parental figure, philosopher and prophet.

Castro fathered eight children among a range of mothers

While in prison during Guru bhukti, he read and studied history, philosophy and politics * Guru theory * [nīcha] Guru-7 activates 6-jail +++ 9-philosophical studies

Guru in bhava-7 [nīcha] Faustian bargains + materialistic relationships

Although FC's centralized economy in a single-crop [sugar] trade environment was never self-sustaining, Castro was a master of the Faustian bargainer. For decades, in exchange for political loyalty and military use, Castro arranged a continuous flow of food and supplies from the Soviet Union.

Ideological partnerships * Soviet aid evaporated during Shani-Ketu bhukti

The Soviet systems collapsed in financial default after 1992, As a client state of now-vanished Soviet Union, Cuba was suddenly impoverished. Castro then forged a relationship with Hugo Chavez, the sympathetic ruler of Venezuela. Autocratic Chavez controlled Venezuela's international oil revenues. Cuba began receiving Venezuelan oil+cash in exchange for medical workers+sugar. Unfortunately, Chavez suffered a premature death from cancer.

Venezuela's fragile single-export [oil] infrastructure began to collapse under pressure of bribery and military violence. FC's own decease soon followed, and Cuba's outside aid pipeline again vanished.


svadu-karaka [sweet] kalatra-karaka [wifely companion]

  • [Shukra-Karkata] values comforting routine * likes to nourish * attracted to settled habits * prefers a home-loving partner * taste for folk-lifestyle * appreciates farmers-and-fishers * pleased by secure borders * enjoys rhythmic seasons * adorns beautiful gardens * seeks balanced parenting arrangements * aesthetic of domestic sharing

Shukra + [Surya-yuti-Budha] cluster would suggest three primary unions

  • two avowed marriages ++ several additional children from non-avowal mothers +++ one 30-yr companion


duro-karaka [endurance] *jara-karaka [Jahre, years]


[Śaśaka Yoga]

  • [Visaka]
  • [Shani-Tula] overburdened agreements * restricted leverage * mandatory bargaining * strict rules for making agreements * structural compression upon kidney-pancreas * rigidly regulated match-making * must form socially approved partnerships * must honor the lowest-common-denominator in deal-making * mandatory fairness * must normalize social justice * unyielding obligatory diplomacy * must advocate for equity * exchanges must be lawful * must continue conventional negotiations * scarce trading resources * maintainer of old bargains
  • [Shani in Bhava-4] steady time-structured life foundations * must sustain the cultural roots * required to defend boundaries * grim determination to provide security * dry stony gardens * pessimistic schoolteachers * judgmental mother * proletarian childhood * normalized parenting * orderly education * caretaker's fatigue * chronic household scarcity * old folk customs * resists domestic innovation * must protect old routines * elders maintain the ancient ritual austerities


Security-focused Shani in Bhava-4 resists changes to the local routines.

Pessimistic, rigid, restricting, minimalist defender of the Old Way of Life.

FC maintained Cuba's infrastructure at a minimal level that did not allow innovation or improvement, but that kept the wheels turning.

Roadways, vehicles, utilities-service infrastructure [electrical, water, transport] were sustained in an increasingly antiquated [Shani] condition due to insufficient resources [Shani] for development.

Cuba's famous frozen-in-time culture indicates FCC's imposed restrictions on the people's Way of Life. The old cars, the crumbling buildings, the hand-hewn fishing boats, the exhausting manual-labor farming = FCÇ's legacy of familiar, lawful, chronic insufficiency and limitation.

Most citizens accepted the rules, taking comfort in normalized, predictable poverty and enduring conditions of blockade.

[uchcha] Shani-4 casts an exceptionally potent and sustaining drishti into Ketu-6 ++ Mangala-10 ++ Budha-Surya-Shukra-1

Shani-Tula[uchcha] * occupies 2nd-from-Chandra suggesting that the second marriage would be change-resistant and stable


rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]


  • [Puna]

  • [Rahu-Mithunaya] shimmering illusion of cooperation * craving for conversation * mask of messaging * boundary-breaching broadcasts * extraordinary explanations * ambitious administration * preposterous propaganda * extravagant commercial transactions * marvelous advertising * thrilling photographs * unusual ensembles * exciting cohort * mesmerizing instructions * over-reaching management * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of information delivery * sensational scripts * exaggerated announcements * exceptional business methods *seeks privilege via communicator-roles

  • [Rahu in bhava-12] passion for privacy * in svabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous retreat * culturally mixed interior guidance * outsider who cleverly insinuates into visionary roles * thrilling psychic adventures * seeks importance via enclosures * exciting invisible events * opportunities via mother's beliefs * extraordinary spirits * self-promoting dreams * exceptional results from imaginative research * mesmerizing Other-Worlds * trespasses the cultural boundaries of private inspiration * may pose as a dream-interpreter * may appear as a magician from distant lands


[Rahu-12 occupies 10th-from-Chandra]

Rahu in bhava-12 occupies the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

Rahu-12 may insinuate power-and-privilege due to knowing important people in foreign lands. Yet Rahu's pattern is always a high rise followed by a crashing fall.

FC cultivated patronage relationships with purportedly powerful leaders in the USSR. He did not realize, or did not reveal, how insubstantial their power really was. When the USSR collapsed financially, Cuba had no buyer for its primary export [sugar] was suddenly bereft of survival goods. Castro then built a patronage supply channel with oil-rich Venezuela, only to have it collapse too.

Rahu-Mithunaya dictatorial, ambitious leadership characterized by bombastic radio speeches [Mithunaya] and outrageous [Rahu] announcements

smokey oily Rahu in bhava-12-Mithunaya * FC was an inveterate cigar smoker. The trail of oily aromatic smoke followed him everywhere. Yet for health reasons he quit smoking in 1985. After 1985, FC was apparently breathing more successfully, since his extraordinary verbal outflow was further increased.

Rahu-12 occupies 10th-from-Chandra-3 [poverty, injustice] Rahu-12 receives no drishti and thus Rahu's quest for privilege is uncontrolled and unimpeded.


Early in his enduring regime, Castro strategically seized all communications media [Rahu the Seizer] . His self-declared rulership authority 10th-from-Chandra was then successfully reinforced by an intensive radio and print campaign of nationalistic propaganda. Ruler of 3 = Budha-4 nationalism. Rahu-Mithunaya-Puna developed and relentlessly broadcast a narrative of Castro's generosity, wisdom, globalism, and patriarchal benevolence [Guru activates Puna] thus supporting Rahu's favorite trajectory via the cult of personality. At the end of his extraordinary and long-lasting dictatorial reign [longevity in power due to Shani] Fidel Castro passed the financial treasury and power of his position directly to his brother Raul Castro [Rahu-3] . For narcissistic personalities, the brother is an extension of the self .


kavandha-karaka [headless] chidra-karaka [gaping] vasana-karaka [vacuum]


  • [Ketu-Dhanus] Mula * philosophically dissociates from sacred convictions * odd professors * dissolves indoctrination * empty paradigm of belief *  dispersed worldview * not limited by conventional beliefs * eccentric teachings * peculiar convictions * ignores restricted catechesis * releases a warm golden  cloud of broad inclusivity into the misty abyss
  • [Ketu in classroom-6] [beneficial] ungrounded enemies * disregards criminal boundaries * absentee maternal relatives * dissolves limits on medications * ambivalent toward exploitations * disinterested in disagreement * disregards accusations * ignores the physicians * walks away from sickness * abandons suffering * vacuous conflicts * liberation via surrender of guilt-and-blame * unless other graha in 6, may prefer to live free from mother's relatives


Ketu resides in the emotionally sheltering 4th-from-Chandra, suggesting a chronic unrootedness and uncertainty of parentage . Also explains FC's trouble in school, despite his intelligence.
