Purvazadha * Apah
For Purva-azadha births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.
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
Purvazadha 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. Male births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Zukra vs. Guru.
In addition to Zukra 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 Zukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Zukra'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 Purva-azadha
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

| Distinctive features of the nativity|
Dad = a Liverpool cotton broker. Surya in bhava-11 economic earnings ++ Budha-11 rules 3-commercial business.
Dad was said to have been a partying musical man-about-town, popular but oft unemployed (Surya weakened in Kumbha).
Surya-Kumbha rules 9 = celebrity fortune, theatrical inspiration, father-figures
Surya-Kumbha individualism despite the system. He was more concerned with working to pay his considerable alimony and child-support debts. The tabloid publishers appreciated his ability to produce good copy.(Surya rules 3rd-from-3rd publications)
Somana-yuti-Shani shows pressure from the Mother. His mother by contrast was a disciplinarian who ran a respectable home. Chandra-12 suggests that mom was emotionally invisible or emotionally unavailable. Chandra-12 thus sets the framework for multiple marriages exemplifying the theme of spouse = 6
Limited vocal range
RH was not a great singer, but he was a great actor. RH had, by his own account, an exceptionally limited vocal range. Chandra in Revatika grants musical skill, but Somana-yuti-Shani places strict constraints upon its use. RH effective talked through most of his singing parts. The small range that he did possess was deployed with masculine charm, conveying elder grumpiness or social authority with pleasing effect.
Although a known curmudgeon, disliked generally by fellow thespians, RH became a favorite of the theatre critics. His success with the critics may have been due to his ability to musically portray Somana-yuti-Shani roles that were emotionally withholding, intolerant, and overbearing. Just like a critic.
MARRIAGE emotional support partnership
Harrison married a total of six times over a 30-year span.
7th-from-Chandra-12 = suggests that for one playing the husband role (Harrison) the wife-role is fundamentally a private person who keeps his emotional needs to himself. Some marriages are easier than others, but the overall pattern is disagreement from the partner (6) and emotional withdrawal (12) from the self.
Wife-2 Lilli Palmer, represented by his Kuja-yuti-Zukra in 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-1 iconic personalit, was a famous celebrity actress of the era, was a famous celebrity actress of the era
Chandra Mahadasha * Chandra-12 fantasy, private affairs,suicideescandalscandal
Harrison was a mid-century Matinee idol upon whom the public audience projected their unrestrained fantasies = Chandra-12 + Surya (drama) in 12th-from-Chandra-12
Harrison endured a nearly-career-ending scandal during Chandra-Guru bhukti when his extramarital lady-love committed suicide (12) after spending the evening with Rex.
Also he endured a recurring scandal after the suicide of one of his six wive. There was a permanent taboo-association affecting his reputation stemming from his life habit of very married philandery = Randhresha-Mangala-1.
However boosted by the fabulous Chandra-12 parivartamsha uttama-Guru-4, the tabloid press amplifed (Rahu-3 press) the lurid stories and the scandals ultimately added an exciting allure to his Matinee idol aura.
Mangala rules Vrischika swamsha
energizes (Kuja) and beautifies (Zukra) his singing voice. Kuja-Bharani is also randhresha and adds a competitive sexual edge to his relationships.
Dynamic, pioneering, musical energy drives the life-force
Rex Harrison was a distinguished and rather notorious stage-and-screen dramatist-singer who was engaged in theatrical acting throughout his long and professionally productive life. In fact, he was acting on stage until only a few weeks before his death from pancreatic cancer at age 82.
Harrison's professional reputation was defined by several world-class performances in roles such as Professor Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady (1964) and Doctor Doolittle (1967). These classic cinematic films have remained popular more than 50 years after their first release, due largely to Harrison's sharply articulate and charismatic performances. Harrison played many popular male roles, but he was in particular a master of wry comedy.
Rebirth and self-reinvention randhresha-Kuja-1
In the capricious world of drama, he enjoyed extraordinary professional longevity. He also negotiated ongoing sex-and-death scandals, from his teens until his eighties.
Randhresa Mangala-1 in strength grants the dynamic thrust necessary rebirth and reinvent oneself. By releasing the conventional limits on self-redefinition, one may use the old container (1 body) to hold new energy (8 initiation, rebirth) thus appearing re-born.
Mr. Harrison is generally retrospectively assessed to have suffered the classic patterns of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which allows a lover to use then scorn the objects of their affection. He was considered both a master of his craft and a bully, who denigrated co-workers, showing special contempt for the leading ladies who threatened to divert attention from the glamour of his performances.
Budha-Kumbha suffers moudhya-dosha which afflicts bhav a-3 and bhava-6 with a narrative of weak critical thinking (3) and disagreeable relationships (6). Emotionally, Budha rules both yuvathibhava-7 AND 7th-from-Chandra, suggesting that the area of life most impacted by the combust Budha = relationships. rules both yuvathibhava-7 AND 7th-from-Chandra, suggesting that the area of life most impacted by the combust Budha = relationships.

Harrison was loved by theatrical audiences due to the regal celebrity of his high-visibility communicative craft and the charmingly humorous precision of his speech. He particularly excelled in roles representing linguists and masters of speech * such as Professor Higgins and Doctor Doolittle * Rahu-Mithunaya-7 ++ Rahu drishti to Budha-3

Harrison famously ascended when his forehead became furrowed with the lines of age. His most successful professional bhukti occurred when he was eligible to enact middle-aged and elder male roles such as Professor Higgins (a sixty-ish teacher) and Doctor Doolittle (a wizened, experienced veterinarian)
Unpleasantly critical; few friendsUnpleasantly critical; few friends
Shani-12 controls friendships Surya-Budha-11
During his sixty-year career, Harrison's fellow actors admired his achievements . Yet they often complained of his sharply critical, unforgiving, domineering and demanding behavior * Nishturabhashi Yoga emotionally insensitive, judgmental, withholding affection
He was considered a difficult man to work with. Colleagues complained that Harrison was lacking empathy toward the needs of others and unappreciative of the gifts of others. In other words, his public perfectionism combined with private intolerance defines a textbook narcissist.

The tabloid celebrity press (3) eagerly developed Harrison's sensational relationship stories to increase their readership. However, unlike a political career, a dramatic entertainment career often benefits from the publicity of am unseemly scandal. So it was with Harrison, whose six marriages and much extramarital mischief were excoriated by moral critics scandal. So it was with Harrison, whose six marriages and much extramarital mischief were excoriated by moral critics but celebrated by his delighted audiences (11 fanclubs).
Surya-Kumbha rules 5-romance. Surya is confident to operate outside conventional hierarchies, giving readers the salacious romance stories that they wanted to read and criticize (Budha critic). The fan-base network exemplifies the thespian's slogan "there's no such thing as bad publicity".
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu in 10th-from-Chandra is a shape-shifter. Harrison was reputed as much for his divorces (Ketu) and disregard for convention (Ketu) as for his positive talents.
Harrison occasionally mentioned his disinterested in conventional theologies. Not a church-goer.
Mr. Harrison lived largely in a state of creative disconcern for the moral outrage that his lifestyle provoked
