RAHU LAGNA SANI DEEPAK CHOPRA 22-10-1946, 3.45 GULIKAN PM N DELHI, INDIA RASI CHART SURYA BUDHA CHANDRA KETU KUJA SUKRA GURU LAGNA BUDHA KUJA CHANDRA RAHU GULIKA GURU NAVAMSA KETU CHART SURYA SUKRA SANI Education: th th 4 lord Sukra, is posited in 10 house forming the yoga of Kendra lord posited in another Kendra. th th He also happens to be the yoga karaka, thanks to his ownership of the 9 house also. 4 house th th th th is aspected by 4 lord Sukra and also by the 10 lord Kuja by means of 8 house aspect. 4 is occupied by Rahu, indicating a foreign influence in education. Note Sukra’s neecha navamsa in th the 8 house. Mind: th The Manokaraka Chandra is in a waning state, in the 8 house, making him think deep about th death and about the dark realities of life and death. 8 house Chandra also gives vaidya rd sambandham. Another significant point is the 3 aspect of Sani, the lagna lord. Knowledge: nd th 2 lord Guru is in bhagya sthana 9 along with 3 other grahas giving it Pravajya yoga, showing again the spiritual inclinations. (Pravajya not full, as Surya is in debilitation.) Note Guru’s neecha nd navamsa. Also, 2 house is aspected by the weak Chandra. Karma: th th th The 10 lord Kuja, is in the bhagya sthana 9 , and in amsaka he is in 4 in Sukra kshetra rendering him strong. Note parivartana yoga and the semi- pravajya yoga also. Bhagya: th th 9 lord Sukra the yoga karaka, is in the favourable 10 house, with a parivartana yoga with the th 10 lord Kuja. The slight blemish of Sukra being in neecha navamsa will prevent the native from reaching the greatest heights the nativity promised. Wisdom: th th th 5 lord Budha is in another trine 9 and is strong in swakshetramsa. 5 house is free from other aspects. No wonder he could produce so many writings full of wisdom! Summary: th It is clear that it is the lord of 5 , also being the karaka for words, Budha, is the real reason for the great body-mind doctor writer’s rise in wisdom. The doctor’s profession he pursued produced results in sthoola but not much satisfaction, as in sookshmam, Guru and Sukra are in neecha. (also due to Surya’s neecha sthithi.) But the Vaak karaka Budha surely lifted him to an elite league.
