Visaka * Radha
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 guidance roles.
Thula-Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 have a broad understanding of the explosive growth-power of extreme polarities. They are often found in advisor roles (Zukra) which engage overview, ideology, theory, or interpretive paradigm (Guru) . Masculine pada 1-2-3 are both famed and feared for their ability to expand conflict or worsen disease condition as a way to super-polarize the toxic situation en-route to an envisioned state of peace.
Pada 1-2-3 are easier for women who can utilize Zukra's balancing skills. For men, diplomatic constraints tend to frustrate their expansive growth patterns. Also, although the priestly teachers are seeking wisdom, for Thula-Visaka the guru-figures may also be impoverished, blaming, polluted, or sick (due to Guru rules 3-6).
Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. 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 Visaka
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."

| Distinctive Features of the Nativity|
Dad = reputed to be a frequently alcoholic unemployed individual who was violent toward his children. Yet as a passionate revolutionary socialist, Dad formed a strong ideological bond with his son. BM grew to become a bully and ideologue like his political father.
Surya-yuti-Budha in Karaka-10 suggests that he provided a strong role model and was a community activist Vriddhipathi-11 in 10
Surya-10 defines his glorious visibility = ruler of bhava-11 commonwealth of workers the masses and the classes
Mom = reputed to be a devout Roman-rite Catholic, mother of three, and local schoolteacher. Her income sustained the family. Despite his being a poor student, mother arranged for young Benito to obtain a teacher's license so that he would have an income. Chandra + Shani-yuti-Kuja in bhava-8 suggests that she operated under cover.
CAREER - CHANDRA
Chandra in classroom-8 = karmesha-10
Rohini Chandra + Mangala + Shani = "look at me, desire me"
Mussolini does not have the vital, self-righteous nativity of a world-dominator like genocidal Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler . Unlike Hitler who controlled events until the moment of his (purported) suicide, Mussolini was motivated by his emotional need to be desired = uttama Rohini Soma. The childish attention-seeking results might have been only comical ... if M hadn't destroyed the lives of innocent millions during his nurture-seeking process.
BAM's governance rhetoric was mainly nationalistic (Chandra) localized, and parochially focused on Making Italia Great Again. Mussolini's scope remained within the special passions of Italy, with a few conquesting forays into weakened, vulnerable states of the surrounding regions (e.g., Ethiopia, Libya, Albania).
Chandra-yuti-Mangala + Shani = clustered in the shad-ashtaka 6/8 from Rahu = a great deal of emotionally polarizing catalysis with rigid religious dogma and with the parents, especially the mother (Chandra)
= emotional need for attention of the parent, the partner, or the people = homeland
Mangala in bhava-8 rules bhava-2 speech
Kuja + Shani + Chandra = 8 = Rage Against the Machine
Mussolini exerted the power to say whatever was most forcefully provocative of change. He spoke violently, with accountability only to the revolutionary process (8).
Guru-9 ideology, theory, paradigm of belief, idealism rules Vishaka radical lagna
Guru-9 mutual drishti into Rahu-1
Mussolini was seen by many as a patriarchal father-figure
Mussolini's propaganda machine rivaled Hitler's. Anyone who questioned or contradicted was simply murdered, and people simply accepted the brutality, because Mafiosi violence was embedded in the folk traditions (bandesha-4 Guru in 9.
Rahu-1 is ruled by and casts drishti upon atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra-9 multiplied by professorial, priestly, father-figure Guru-9. Mussolini appeared to outsiders as a somewhat plumpish, bombastic, primping, self-indulgent sensualist. However, he was hugely popular in his homeland which was accustomed to rule by lavishly dressed preaching and proclaiming priestly figures.
atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra rules jamna lagna Vrishabha = randhrasthana containing the bitter Nishturabashi yoga
Women melted their gold wedding rings to send to Mussolini. He was remarkably attractive to women.
According to wikipedia, as he gained political power, Mussolini's marital life was characterized by an expedient facade of respectability covering a pattern of lifetime infidelity and multiplicity in his intimate relationships.
exchange of vows in marriage-1 * to Ida Dalser in Trento Italy. If this marriage did occur, it would have been before 1913 during the chidra-dasha Rahu-Kuja bhukti which would certainly have been a less benevolent time for marriage. Following Mussolini's political ascendency, evidence of his first marriage was destroyed. Both wife-1 and son-1 were murdered y fascisti government agents.
With Rachele, Mussolini had five children. Mussolini had also some well-known extramarital companions, among them Margherita Sarfatti and his final accomplice, Clara Petacci. Furthermore, Mussolini had innumerable brief sexual encounters with female supporters . atamakaraka Zukra + Guru provides an array of feminine companionship.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Yogakaraka Shani rules 4-foundations, schooling + 5-intelligence, creativity
Shani-8 rules the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-5 politics, drama
Never responsible to the visible, socially fixed order of law. Shani the lawgiver rules the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra suggesting one who is a secretive agent of governance due to Shani resding in the undisclosed, secretive 8th bhava
emotionally punitive Nishturabashi yoga in bhava-8, within-1-degree-orb
A key to Mussolini's extraordinary life as a gifted, prayed-for savior to rescue Italy from chaos and anarchy - who became a terrorist dictator and executioner of millions = the enduring power of merciless SHANI
Terrorism was Mussolini's primary strategy. bhava-8 = terror contains Shani-Chandra-Kuja. Shani-Chandra within one degree of orb.
Mussolini's Fascist dictatorship was sustained by some of the most brutal terrorism in modern history. Typical of his cohort of extremely narcissistic dictators during the 20th century, Mussolini was raised with violence and conditioned to be unafraid of it.
Nishturabashi yoga indicates the great difficulty of his mother imposing conditions on her love for the boy, rather than offering unconditional love as mothers are generally wont to do. Adults with Nishturabashi yoga having been wounded by mother's refusal to accept the child may become perpetrators of vicious punishment.
From a Jyotishavidya perspective, it could be assessed that Mussolini's core motive was neither social justice nor the advance of civilization nor indeed the welfare of other persons on any level. As compensation for a brutal childhood deprived of parental affection and punished by vicious authoritarian masters (Nishturabashi yoga in bhava-9 sacred doctrine = rogesha-6 slave master Shani), young Benito craved the soothing balm of personal luxury and personal wealth entitlements in massive, limitless, trauma-compensatory amounts.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Kala Sarpa Yoga Ananta * Rahu-1 type of KSY
Rahu-1 occupies 6th-from-Chandra + 6th-from-Shani + 6th-from-Mangala
Rahu-1 Thula with such dramatic empowerment including Rahu's drishti to 5 (ploliyics) 7 (legal arrangements, albeit Ketu-7 indicates disregard for law) and 9 (dogma, beliefs)
Rahu the Rogue : what goes up, must come down
Rahu drishti into atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra (catastrophe) + rogesha Guru (crime, disagreement)
Rahu in bhava-1 = megalomania * Rahu's ruler atmakaraka Zukra is further inflated Zukra-yuti-Guru
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
Ketu in classroom-7 made it possible for Mussolini to promise legal remedies to injustices (7) with no personal consequences for non-fulfillment of those promises
His characteristic covenant (7) with his people included matters of social equity, justice, fair distribution of treasury.
Regardless of the bombastic method of assertion, yuvathipathi Shani-8 drains all vitality from trusts and agreements. Shani ensured no accountability and no transparency, while Ketu provided no personal consequences, and no legal control.
~~ Bangalore Venkata Raman. (1992). A Catechism of Astrology. Part II, page 32 (bold-type emphasis by BPL)
[BPL note, Raman would have written this answer in approx. 1942 as gochara Shani passed over the center of Mussolini's janma rashi = Vrishabha.]
"Q. 48. - Is there Kalasarpa Yoga in [Benito] Mussolini's horoscope ?
Ans. There is no doubt Kalasarpa Yoga in Mussolini's horoscope; but the evil is tempered because the planets are hemmed in not between Rahu and Ketu but between Ketu and Rahu.
This is quite unfavourable and will have a very adverse effect especially that Saturn is at present transiting Mussolini's Janma Rashi, in which are placed Saturn and Mars."
