Leonardo da Vinci
Masculine NativityPūrvāṣāḍhā - Apah
Asadhash - Pooraadam - Purvasharha - Ambudaiva
For Pūrvāṣāḍhā births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.
Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.
For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music , may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.
Inspirational diplomatic grace
Pūrvāṣāḍhā are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically, Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine.
They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Masculine births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Shukra vs. Guru.
In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.
Like all Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Shukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.
Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā - Apah
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86
" ... corresponds to rather a low type of character .
One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.
Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.
He vainly considers himself above his station in life

Dad = Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a Florentine legal notary. Dad hailed from a lineage of notaries. Dad was a wealthy gentleman who served the court as a notary. In modern terms, da Vinci's dad would be called a contract lawyer.
LdV's dad's dad [Antonio di Piero, represented by Rahu-Purvashadha-1] was a notary-attorney and commercial trader. Grandad, LdV's guardian, did business in Spain and Morocco.
Dad's marriages and Leonardo's many, but distant, siblings
Following Leonardo's birth to a 15-year-old peasant mom, Dad married four times to various ranked ladies. Offspring were produced by dad's marriages 3-and-4.
As a result, Leonardo had 12 step-siblings. The brothers-and-sisters were as much as 40 years younger than him, and Leonardo had little contact with them beyond occasional legal wrangling about money. [3rd-from-Chandra = Shukra-6 financial disagreements.]

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
As a gay man belonging to the artistic, engineering communities of the Franco-Italian Renaissance , DaVinci would have been welcomed into the homosocial realms of design, architecture, finance, trade, and military.
DaVinci was known to have formed important personal and professional relationships with numerous men in his environment. However, a combination of Shani in 10th-from-Chandra plus Ketu in yuvati-sthana does suggest that LdV would have been unconcerned with marriage as a lifestyle.
the 2-12 angle of Chandra-Guru shows a preincarnational plan that does not favor children. Marriage would thus have limited-or-no utility for LdV's life purposes.
Shukra-6 indicates attraction to servants, and two of his apprentice-servants did become life companions.
