Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman
For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.
Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.
Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.
Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.
Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83
"A proud and arrogant disposition,
Uttara natives are extremely intelligent
but because of their inordinate pride,
and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Surya in bhava-12 suggests primarily background operations at the political level
Surya-yuti-Budha engages Budha lagnesha-karmesha, placing BA in a strategic, tactical, public communications role
Chandra rules 6th-from-Chandra
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
the bright intelligence and media-savvy of bhava-12 Simha containing Surya-yuti-Budha would suggest that -Assad's first wife would be a person of sparkling celebrity charm and smiling smarts managing (Budha) all types of media, propaganda, advertising, and announcements.
The initial results for 7th-from-Chandra-6 marriage-1 typically produce a foreign-born (or deeply interiorized) spouse who may identify strongly with the socially-invisible classes at least partially because she is a dreamlike figure within the marriage.
Meanwhile, in this case, Surya-yuti-Budha in Simha-12 also indicates a regal, fashionable, courtly lifestyle with photogenic celebrity qualities. 7th-from-Chandra-6 often results in distancing, hospitalization, alienation, or long separations either physical or emotional.
6-12 alliances usually have a culture gap between the mates. It marks the first lifemate as a person overflowing with brilliant political intelligence who is nevertheless sidelined, sequestered, cloistered, or ignored. She may live in a beautifully appointed, regally elegant, political prison.
Zukra-yuti-Kuja ++ Zukra occupies a nakshatra of Kuja could suggest (does not confirm, but does suggest) a mixed-sexual orientation for this husband. Two avowed unions are predicted, and naturally the sexual element adds complexity to both partnerships.
emotional damage + relationship challenges
a very strong cluster in navamsha Vrischika-10 could suggest a career in emergency medicine or advanced achievements in surgery or secret torture police or a career in military carnage
Budha rules Karakamsha * bhava-10 Mithunaya communications, propaganda, planning, strategy, tactics, schedules
Ruler of 10th-from-10th occupies 10 = yoga for social authority via consulting relationships with advisors
Governance strategies depend on extensive propaganda, including BA's image plastered on every surface . Internal attacks on citizens are characterized as improvements within a positive narrative of social reform.
al-Assad the Younger followed in the footsteps of his father Hafez, who kept a tight rule over Syria via an effectively managed "cult of personality" similar to Mao Ze Dong. When Bashar al-Assad gained the kingship immediately after his father's death, BA's marketing-management team continued the method of plastering the image of The Younger upon every public surface, every screen and every wall, creating a relentless flow of visual information communicating divine right and legacy of the Father * Budha-yuti-Surya rules 10-legitimate governance
Zukra rules the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra Wifely figure = = an agent of stability and grace
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu occupies 10th-from-Chandra, suggesting institutional legitimacy issues, along with international invalidation of BA's authority to govern.
