BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.

Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.

Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.

In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.

Mula's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom. Yet, the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos have equal utility to compassion and love.

Because Alakmi-born preach their principles while dismissing (Ketu) the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.

When involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula-born may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.

Mula may suffer from restless windiness (vata dosha).

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable." [end quote]

Distinctive features of the nativity

Surya * pitri-karaka (father) * jyoti-karaka (light)


  • Surya-Makara - Draco * Savitra * the stimulator * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the hierarchical structuring rashi of Shani
  • Surya in bhava-2 * creative values-fulfillment * confident story-telling * dazzling bardic tradition * intelligence for languages * genius for sound-and-color * radiant genetically preserved knowledge * focus on stored assets * banking entitlements * bright face-speech-song * eye on capitalization * father heart of family * sparkling center of the treasury-drama * father may be a banker-collector-preservationist
  • Surya-2 parivartamsha Shani-9


Surya-Makara is weakened in the final dead degree of Makara ++ the 6/8 shad-ashtakya parivartamsha yoga with Surya's enemy Shani = mixed benefits for both father (Surya) and for son.

It was said of Faruq that he was "a king (Surya) who behaved like a commoner (Shani)" Surya-2 parivartamsha Shani-9

Dhanayoga 2-9 marks the enriching but conflicted dispensations from the royal treasury


Dad = Fu'ad al-Awwal. Dad's job title = King of Egypt and Sovereign of Nubia, the Sudan, Kurdufan and Darfur

Commenters of the royal court described his behavior as secretive yet imperious and self-referential = dharmesha Surya-2 parivartamsha Shani-9.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Thula * comforted by ritual negotiation of agreements * sensitive to balance * needs to trade
  • Chandra in Visaka-Radha * soothed by expansive shocks * protectors of widening energy channels * needs root-splitting growth surge
  • Chandra in classroom-11 * comfortable with networks * calmed by earnings * familiar with fellowship * routine associations * accustomed to distributive systems * settled into community rhythms * acculturated to social participation * needs popularity * feels the repeating pulse of connectivity * soothed by social linkage * undulating friendships
  • Somana-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally pro-active * sensitive to brotherly figures * needs to win * comforted by direct forward movement * invigorates the undulating routine * soothed by pioneering innovation * competitive mother * calmed by routine exercise * feels like a champion
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * * emotionally expedient * sensitive to exotic folks * risk-rewarding mother * needs exciting opportunities * unconventional parenting style * comfortable in unorthodox environments * undulating desires * craves nurturing * feels exceptional

Chandra-yuti-Rahu + Chandra yuti Kuja (kuja dosha) presents a supreme challenge to the first marriage because it places Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra.

Kuja dosha formed by Mangala drishti upon 7th-bhava and 7th-from-Chandra is amplified by Rahu .

  • Two marriages + multiple public liaisons.
  • His father had a similar marital experience, denoted by Mangala drishti into Surya-2.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • marriage-1
  • bhava-6 contains Ketu

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-12 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • marriage-2
  • bhava-1 ruled by Mangala-12 = Kuja-yuti-Rahu + Chandra yuti Kuja
  • lifepartner-1 = mother of his three daughters. publicly recorded insults to her caused her to retreat in disgrace. Kuja-yuti-Rahu generating a fierce Kuja Dosha.

Despite the production of three daughters, His Majesty was unable to sustain a connection to his Ketu-6 bride. On the pretext of requiring a male heir (and extricating himself from the intrigues of the aristocrats) Farouk divorced (Ketu) his royal first wife. He promptly re-married a 17-year-old commoner. The second marriage produced the desired male heir, but the second union was also short-lived due to his extreme profligacy.

Two marriages are seen in navamsha Zukra-yuti-Budha, with Budha representing the school-aged second wife.

Significant Rahu-amplified Kuja dosha upon bhava-7 and upon 7th-from-Chandra exacerbates the disconnectivity suggested by Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra

FA married twice and was implicated in countless affairs-du-coeur.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka (brother) * virya-karaka (virile)

  • Mangala-Thula * vigorous pursuit of alliance * penetrating advocacy * thrust toward union * proactive bargaining * military negotiations * push toward terms of agreement * aggressive deal-making *energetic arbitration * athletic balancing * champion of fair contracts

  • Kuja-yuti-Chandra * invigorated feelings * energized intuition * dynamic nurturance * competitive caretaking * often the dominant parent * needs to win * forward thrusting emotions * seeks security via conquest
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * thrill of muscular action * competitive ambition * passion to win * fascinating physicality * compulsive drive toward heroic battle * dynamic desires * champion of culture-clash * forward thrust toward opportunity * forceful pursuit of privilege

Chandra yuti Kuja in bhava-11 = competitive race-car driver (Kuja) with a lifelong passion (Rahu) for high-speed automobiles (Chandra)

Mangala in bhava-11 rules

  • 5-celebrity, gambling, politics, romance, children
  • Mangala-Thula rogesha + Kuja-yuti-Rahu suggests disease condition related to sweet foods and liquors along with sexually transmitted illnesses

Mangala-Thula rules Vrischika 10th navamsha . FA was known primarily for his sexual excesses due to Kuja-yuti-Chandra + Kuja-yuti-Rahu

uttama-Mangala in 12th navamsha = power spent in enclosures such as casino hotels and bordellos

Budha * jamayah-karaka (sibling) * sandeza-karaka (message) * zisya-karaka (student)

  • Budha-Kumbha * connecting communications * systematic pronouncements * articulation of social-scientific networks * descriptive inter-webbed definitions * diagrams the marketplace linkages * futuristic conversations * messages about communities * discusses economic transactions * explains social participation linkage * large-scale logic * skilled weaving * deft knitting * hands-arms-shoulders make connective gestures

Radio Talks * Addresses to the people = Budha in bhava-3 + Budha-Kumbha (proletariat)

In the early years of his rule while age 17, at onset of Shani-Shani svabhukti, freshly arrived from British boarding high school, FA delighted his nation by making regular, inspiring - and unprecedented - radio addresses to the common people. Also egalitarian Chandra in classroom-11

Ruler Shani-Simha-9 marks FA's radio talks as unprecedented for a ruler, yet dignified via Shani-9 representing religious conservatism and respect for the old doctrines.

Reflecting his British schooling, AF unlike his predecessors thought it appropriate to communicate with his subjects (Shani )

AF drew considerable praise from world leaders for this activity. Sadly, as with most parts of his overall governance habits and lifestyle, the radio addresses ceased and his concern for governance waned due partly to the weakness of Surya-Makara.
