|Distinctive features of the
Journalist, celebrity, wife, mother, literary editor, and philanthropist: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy was an iconic woman.
An entire generation of American women both idolized her and projected their jealousy and unfulfilled selves upon the ubiquitous photographic images of the young Mrs. Kennedy.
Her dark, slender beauty; her privileged upbringing; her grace in tragedy; her extraordinary sense of fashion and entertainment; and her protective maternal instincts; all lived large in the national mind.
As a Thula native with a financially super-strong placement of L-2+L-7 Mangala, Jacqueline Bouvier had two dashing, competitive, vital, rich, and notoriously promiscuous husbands. Due to problems of L-9 Budha = moudhya , her third union of 14 years, while much more civilized, involved a mate who remained married to another woman. Her marriages both ended in widowhood. emotional constitution = Chandra in detached-observer Azwini
Atmakaraka = Shukra
|Rahu in bhava-7||
Desires to "marry up". In a spiritualized nativity, particularly fierce placements of Rahu-7 may elevate the partnership ambitions so high that one seeks union with divine entities.
Comments on the Husband Karaka , Guru and Shani:
Guru, karaka for the first husband in a woman's nativity,
Devapati Guru represents USA President 35, John F. Kennedy. Guru from the female's perspective is quite problematic. Not only in bhava-8 and in close proximity to Shukra, but also for Thula lagna, Guru = L-3+L-6.
(As always Guru is also a karaka for the father, so that the old wisdom about a woman marrying her father is quite true in Jyotisha.)
In this nativity, Rohini ('desire me") Guru is also L-12 from Chandra. Brihaspati is also the L-9-from-Chandra, so there are some benefits too from the first husband, including emotionally supportive religiosity. (Mrs. Kennedy and her husband shared Roman Catholic religious values, at least in theory.)
Guru is strong and life-defining in navamsha lagna. Yet even in L-9, the signification of Guru in Mithunais of a two-faced personality, with external charm and internal disquiet.
Behari says of radix Guru in Vrishabha/8:
"You may have a contradictory character.
Behind a veil of respectability your sexual curiosity and desire to enjoy the pleasures of life will be strong, though you will feel guilt in satisfying those desires.
You will not enjoy a happy home life and, though you sometimes seem to be a great moralist, your life has not grown in a balanced way.
You will be sickly but long-lived."
The single biggest problem regarding the first husband, from the female native's point of view, is the proximity of Guru to Shukra.
L-8 Shukra in Vrishabha dominates Guru.
Shukra has the superior degree, and Shukra owns the rashi.
The first husband is a great lover of " wine, women, and song". He indulges in sensual pleasures, secret relationships, and the squandering of inherited wealth. (JFK's father provided a great largesse.)
The first husband gets dangerously involved with hidden knowledge and illicit associations through seduction of these extraordinary forbidden sense pleasures (e.g., mafia+ L-6 Guru in 8, under the thumb of the L-8).
The beautiful, voluptuous, secret, Guru-permission women who give the pleasures will have a good deal of control over him.
With Ketu in lagna, the native will remain detached from the husband's pleasure addictions (Shukra, addictions) Note that Ms. Bouvier's navamsha features neechcha Shukra - much trouble from women through the husband.
First husband's death in the Vimshottari period of Rahu who gives the effect of Rahu's lord Kuja, with Kuja lord of 7th-from-Guru. Her age 33.
Shani, karaka for the second husband.
Typically, if a second marriage is indicated, the second husband is older than the first husband.
Shani, representing Aristotle Onassis, carries a number of attributes, including age, vulgarity, and wealth.
As the Yogakaraka for Thula lagna, Shani brings owned properties (4) and children (5) along with material-emotional security (4) and celebrity, fame, entertainments and amusements, and potentially great wealth through speculative genius. As L-10+L-11
Yogakaraka Shani = the second husband for Thula lagna. Shani = a man who is either older or more established than the first husband, who is wealthier and has more owned property (Shani = L-4) than the first husband, and who is also more traditional or conservative in outlook.
(For predictions, all of these traits may be adjusted if Shani casts drishti upon a receptive Jupiter - in that case, the first husband can be elder, more conservative, and even crankier than the second one!)
Shani occupies radix bhava-3, suggesting that husband-2 is primarily involved with accumulation of self-made wealth and commercial transactions.
His mental state might be frustrated and depressed, with a persistently negative internal narrative, despite Shani's Yogakaraka power to succeed tremendously in material life.
His main preoccupations would be the details of daily commercial business, his own siblings, and the team of semi-equal managers that he would have needed, as a great shipping magnate, to have assembled around him.
In general he would be prone to worrying and worst-case-scenario thinking; expecting a knife in his back at any time.
Behari says of Shani/Dhanau-3, " You may be unhappy. You may lose your property, become self-centered and miserly, and even fall prey to bad company."
A major consideration for evaluating the character of the second husband is that Shani occupies the Nakshatra of Mula - a location of great volatility and negative risk. Mula signifies where the native over-estimates one's own abilities, and one gets " in over one's head".
In addition D-9 neechcha Shani of Ms. Bouvier's nativity signifies the second husband's psycho-emotional distress, with early alienation from his mother fueling lifelong warlike competitiveness originating in deep jealousy (the devastating result of Mesha Chandra + neechcha Shani, compare to Mother Teresa).
Reputedly, Mrs. Kennedy-Onassis came to quickly regret her decision to marry Aristotle Onassis. Her motive was, naturally, driven by Shani: she was a widow, seeking financial security for herself and her children. Shani being the apparently auspicious L-4+L-5, she may have had high expectations of extraordinary benefit, including international elite status and nearly infinite wealth. She may also have anticipated pleasure from acquiring step-children through her second husband. But her decision turned out to be a mistake. The step-children were spoiled and unpleasant. Her budget was surprisingly limited. And her depressed
Shani is very inauspicious in Mula, a Nakshatra of Ketu. Her second husband married her for instrumental purposes also, mainly to increase his international social standing in order to join a global elite which would otherwise exclude him as a ruffian and Mafioso.
In the exchange of an expedient marriage, Ms. Kennedy-Onassis did receive considerable material assets, although she was not given much access to Onassis' wealth until after he died. She was not included in the enormously wealthy second husband's will, and it was only due to the negotiations of the elder brother of her first husband (11th-from-7th-from-Chandra, the income-generating Kuja-Simha in her labha bhava) that she received a widow's settlement at all. The outcome was a level of wealth for the native which put her and her children firmly beyond the reach of want, securely established in a prestigious flat in New York City, but at the same time she did not end up with " money to burn".
The second husband was reputed to be verbally and emotionally abusive, promiscuous almost immediately after marriage, and contemptuous of both the native and her children.

Overall conditions of marriage apply to both husbands
Rahu-Chandra in bhava-7 sets the overall conditions for marriage throughout the native 's lifetime.
Ketu in 7th-from-Chandra, detachment from marriage, from the first spouse, first spouse profile includes his distancing, spaceyness (perhaps caused by painkillers for his medical pain), and his ambivalence toward the marriage contract.
Malefic Rahu, ruled by maraka L-2+L-7 Kuja. Both husbands have a powerful male sex drive (Kuja) and emotional volatility (Chandra + Rahu).
the native is deeply emotionally allied with the first spouse, despite or perhaps because of that undulating nodal volatility. And he with her: Guru occupies Rohini, a Nakshatra of Chandra: he needs her attention very much. The complication is that he also needs almost infinite (Guru-expanded) attention from other exciting, dramatic, youthful-looking (Azwini) women, as well.
With the second spouse, the native (represented by Azvini Chandra) has more the role of one lover amongst many lovers (Soma + Rahu = 5th from Shani) rather than as a wife in the traditional exclusive marriage contract. Both her Azvini Moon and her second husband as represented by Mula Shani are Ketu-ruled players, suggesting a profound ambivalence of both parties toward the relationship. However there is some level of emotional engagement, however reactive: Shani in 9th-from-Chandra duplicates the emotional relationship of the native to her father, and undoubtedly this angle will also produce material benefits. There was, after all was said and done, a gain after her many travails of millions of dollars.
Her emotions are highly unstable and dramatic in all marriages.
Receiving the drishti of Rahu, Kuja is a virulent killer. Rahu also greatly amplifies the L-10 Chandra, magnifying the public reputation.
He marriages are volatile, challenge cultural boundaries, highly gainful (L-2 Kuja in bhava-11), world-famous.
Both marriages ended with the death (maraka Kuja, lord of Rahu and lord of Chandra) of the husband. Rahu casts drishti upon Kuja, greatly amplifying Kuja's natural gainfulness (via deaths of course)
Empowered in shadbala:
L-11 Surya (gains of income)
L-1(social personality identity)
L-8 Shukra( widowhood, divorce, joints assets of marriage, secret information)
Assessment of the marriages:
L-10 Chandra + Rahu in 10th-from-10th kalatra bhava= native's public reputation is enormously enhanced through a very public marriage.
Lagnesha swakshetra Shukra in bhava-8 for widowhood = strong.
For Thula lagna, Kuja= lord of both marriage-1 (bhava-7) and marriage-2.
Kuja is strong and highly auspiciousin Simha rashi, where Mangala occupies the 5th-from-Mesha and 10th-from-Vrischika.
he first two spouses perform like an " athlete" (the word 'athlete' originality meant a member of the nobility) or a vigorous King (Simha).
Both marriages are exceptionally gainful = native's L-7+L-2 in bhava-11
Both spouses have strong sexual energy; and are involved in multiple romantic pursuits (Kuja/Simha, 5th-from-yuvati bhava + Kuja in 5th navamsha, Thula)
Spousal Infidelity exacerbated by Kuja/Thula/5 in navamsha
Behari says of Kuja/Mesha/11:
"you will be influential and wealthy.
Your collection of precious stones will be extensive and very worthy.
Your life, in spite of a great urge for social work, will be lonely and without much support from your family members."
(Mrs. K-O's third partner M. Templesman was a well known diamond merchant.)
Marriage-1 to JFK:
The relative lagna = Mesha; the relative lagnesha = Kuja.
Kuja occupies 5th-from-7th.
5th-from = a shining and glorious(natural Simha) angle of confidence and true faith, of Ravi.
Spouse = a confident genius, esp. in games, speculation, literature, and politics. L-7 in 5th-from-7th indicates the salient intelligence and performance art capabilities (campaigns, speeches, fundraisers) of the spouse.
First husband powerfully (Kuja/Simha) assists her goal of gaining marketplace position through income and large networks of profitable association (bhava-11). She wishes to accomplish this goal in a regal fashion (Simha) through competition and sexual relationships (Kuja)
In the first spouse's own life, his modus operandi was getting attention (bhava-5) for his genius. His life was oriented toward winning (5) recognition and approval for his literary creativity (5) through politics, entertainment, gambling and speculations such as competitive elections (5).
the native brings a matching quality of slender, fashionable, confident, intelligent demeanor with well-networked high social position (Kuja's lord L-11 Karkata-Surya = exceptionally strong in bhava-10) making her a powerful agent to assist him in developing his political and literary genius.
7th-from-Chandra = Thula, the native 's own rashi lagna. Within Thula, find native's own Ketu = detachment, deep passivity, inability to find a permanent center-balance point in relationships; yet a deep longing for partnership, merging, and loving union (which for Ketu cannot be found in human love relationships but only in full balance with the Divine).
he spouses, while loving, are considerably detached from each other. Outside partnerships are likely in their mutual never-ending quest for ineffable merger, but divorce is unlikely. the native experiences the first spouse as both passive (Ketu) and unfaithful (Kuja/11) in marriage. Neither partner will fully commit nor fully withdraw.
Marriage-2 to Aristotle Onassis:
The relative lagna = Vrischika; the relative lagnesha = Kuja.
Kuja occupies 10th-from-2nd
10th-from = a sober and harshly realistic(natural Makara) angle of weighty responsibility and leadership under rule of law, of Shani.
he 2nd spouse has some elegant qualities (Kuja/Simha) but also some vulgar dominance (Kuja/10th) qualities
spouse-2 executive leadership in a Kingly style, and dominant " alpha" public reputation= L-2 in 10th-from-2nd.
In the native 's life,the second husband also powerfully (Kuja/Simha) assists her goal of gaining marketplace position through income and large networks of profitable association (bhava-11). She wishes to accomplish this goal in a regal fashion (Simha) through competition and sexual relationships (Kuja).
In the second spouse's own life, his modus operandi was getting respect (L-2 in 10th-from-2nd) for his power (Kuja). His life was oriented toward Achieving highest social positionand assertively (even militarily) defending his royal command from the top of the pyramid (Kuja, 10).
the native brings a matching quality of slender, fashionable, confident, intelligent demeanor with well-networked high social position (Kuja's lord L-11 Karkata-Surya = exceptionally strong in bhava-10) making her a powerful agent to assist him in developing his quest for executive dominance.
2nd-from-Chandra = Vrishabha, the native 's own bhava-8. Within Vrishabha, find native's own Shukra + Guru = extraordinary wealth and pleasure, wisdom lost to sensuality, fabulous secret treasures and confidential information leading to great material privilege.
he spouses are involved almost entirely in material sensual expansion. Indulgence of every kind. Despite fabulous wealth, the native may be unhappy - since Shukra is her own bhava-8 for hidden relationships, and Shukra is lord of 6th-from-2nd-marriage (self, lagna) which means she becomes an enemy of the marriage, or feels sick in the marriage. It is toxic to her despite or perhaps because of the fabulous indulgence in wealth and sensual pleasures.
Guru in bhava-8is malefic for Thula lagna; the native lord of domains 3 and 6. The 2nd husband is adversarial to the marriage (albeit gainful because Guru is lord of the relative 11th-from-2nd-from-Chandra) and extremely involved in matters of day-to-day business (bhava-3) although on the plus side Guru owns the native 's house of self-made wealth (bhava-3) so the 2nd marriage does increase the native 's wealth after considerable litigation (bhava-6).
9th-from-Chandra = 3rd marriage
9th-from-Chandra = Dhanau, containing Shani.
Lord of Dhanau = Guru in 12th-from-9th.
Shani = a temporal benefic for Thula lagna; the third major emotional union is morally solid, intelligent, mature, stable, and beneficial in most ways.
However lord of 9th-from-Chandra = Guru in the " loss of matters of 9th-from-Chandra" 8th domain = no ceremonial marriage for the 3rd union -- because the 3rd spouse is somehow a very beneficial companion and yet " unavailable" due to religious proscription (Shani/Dhanau/9).
Budha lord of dharma and vyaya bhava occupies bhava-10, indicating basic dignity but also high levels of privacy in the third emotionally significant relationship

Observation regarding gochara Rahu-Ketu at time of first marriage
Rahu-Ketu are in a very unusual position at the time of first marriage. Note that while Rahu-Ketu do not contact any of the " personal" axes such as lagna, nodal axis, or Chandra in D-1 or D-9, Rahu-Ketu *do* contact the *dashamsha*lagna.
The nativity of John F. Kennedy shows the same pattern: gochara Rahu-Ketu do not contact any of his six " personal" axes, but gochara Rahu-Ketu do stimulate his very busy D-10 nodal axis.
This interesting gochara Rahu-Ketu fact leads to an interesting conclusion. This marriage was predominantly and strategically a public service, public status, or career move on the part of Ms. Bouvier and her spouse. Their wedding was indeed " the social event of the season", and their public careers were legendary.
Marriage-2 = 20-Oct-1968to Aristotelis Sokrates Onassis
Chandra/Ketubhukti -- Ketu is quite inauspicious in Vishaka, giving the results of L-1 Shukra. Navamsha Shukra = neechcha.
However, Shukra periods are marriage-maker periods in any nativity regardless of rashi on the lagna of navamsha or any other consideration. Periods of the Karaka for marriage = Shukra can trump other conditions. (Rahu can also trump.)
gochara Rahu-Ketu = Meena/Kanya
death of second spouse=21-Nov-1963
Budha = lord of 2nd-from-L-2 Kuja
gochara Rahu-Ketu = Mithuna-Dhanushya
Observation regarding gochara Rahu-Ketu at time of first marriage
In addition to the peculiar timing of marriage during a bhukti of separator-Ketu, gochara Rahu-Ketu are *also* in a very unusual position at the time of second marriage.
While Rahu-Ketu do not contact any of the " personal" axes such as lagna, nodal axis, or Chandra in D-1 or D-9, transiting Rahu-Ketu *do* contact the busy *saptamsha*nodal axis.
This interesting gochara Rahu-Ketu fact leads to an interesting conclusion. The second marriage appears to have been predominantly and strategically An alliance made on behalf of her children.
Although the second marriage ended in death and not divorce, marital bliss from the second marriage was reported to have been brief if indeed it ever occurred. Onassis' quick return to his long-term love affair with Maria Callas was well publicized.
Death of second spouse during Chandra bhukti is also an atypical planetary arrangement. It is configurable through invoking the lords of 2nd-house from the 2nd-marriage ruler (Kuja) and Ketu's passage through the death-of-2nd-spouse bhava-3, but these angles reveal a rather abstract emotional and social impact of a husband's death upon the native .
Ketu in lagna indeed produces a rather abstract personality overall!
USA Pres-35 John F. Kennedy
Guru = karaka for a female's first husband. Also, Lord of 7th navamsha = Guru.
Guru rises in the navamsha = native is deeply identified, psycho-emotionally, with the first marriage partner.
Material results of the spousal behavior are shown in the radix. From the radix viewpoint, the first spouse does not perform very nicely.
L-3+L-6 Guru indicates loss of marital agreement and spouse overly involved with the affairs of his siblings (3).
Furthermore Guru in bhava-8for secret activities, with the very sensual L-8 Vrishabha Shukra.
The spouse is involved in excessive, self-indulgent, sexual and financial, secret activity. Although effectively suppressed by public relations controllers at the time, JFK's affair with Marilyn Monroe and likely other ladies of the era has now been exposed.
Radix Kuja's drishti upon bhava-2 created a powerful Kuja Dosha (adversarial energy) for the second marriage.
marriage #2 spouse = 2nd navamsha.Lord of 7th navamsha = Chandra. Chandra is extremely problematic in navamsha, where Soma yuti neechcha Shani provides a " lifelong sade saati" in the world of intimate partnership.
The second spouse has severe emotional problems, despite being wealthy - note the repeating wealth yoga interior to navamsha re: 2nd marriage = L-2 in bhava-11.
Material results of the spousal behavior are shown in the radix.
From the radix viewpoint, the second spouse is represented by L-10 Azvini Chandra in bhava-7, enflamed by Rahu into famous (L-10) high-permission (Rahu) dominant-male (Kuja) entitlement (Simha/11).
Rahu is aggressive, foreign, hot, dark, and extremely selfish.
Mrs. Kennedy-Onassis' third relationship was not a legal marriage, but it may have been a quite satisfactory partnership spiritually, because L-9 Budha (for third union) = lord of navamsha lagna.
As a symptom of Shukra Occupying bhava-8 (hidden sexuality) and neechcha in navamsha (intelligent but immoral women), the native 's continuing troubles with " the Other Woman" followed her into the third partnership. Her final live-in companion ofnearly 20 years remained married to his first wife until the native 's death.
However it is noted in the press that her companion very skillfully managed her investment portfolios, which dramatically increased her personal fortune in the latter part of life.
L-9 Budha in bhava-10, 2nd-from-Mithuna and 11th-from-Kanya = strong and clever financial skills of the 3rd partner.
he 3rd union is not ceremonially consecrated, probably due to a powerful Shani drishti upon bhava-9 which might conceivably be related to some conditions imposed during receipt of wealth from husband #2. That is speculative but the Grahado support the speculation.
union #3 partner = 9th navamsha. Lord of 9th navamsha = Shani.
Despite the inauspicious nature of Soma-yuti- neechcha-Shani in navamsha, there is much less problem emotionally. Shani is not harmed by being with Chandra, only the reverse is true. However neechcha Shani has His own problems from neechcha standing, including psycho-emotional toxicity from ethnic dehumanization or blood-hatred.
Material results of the spousal behavior are shown in the radix. From the radix viewpoint, the third spouse is represented by Dhanau-Shani in bhava-3.
Shani = highly stable Yogakaraka graha which gives good results after age 45 and very good after age 60.
Shani's pessimistic, constraining and delaying drishti upon bhava-9 = 3rd marriage = agent for delay in ceremonial confirmation of 3rd marriage.
Is there a pattern for double widowhood?
Rahu becomes a super-maraka in bhava-7 for the first spouse, from which domain Rahu gives the effect of L-2+L-7 Kuja AND Rahu sends drishti to Kuja, super-magnifying Kuja's already strong maraka powers.
Kuja owns AND aspects bhava-2 = the second husband.
Kuja does not molest the 9th house = 3rd marriage
Is there a pattern for spouses who were overtly unfaithfulto her, or kept alliances to other women open during their unions with her?
Yes, the navamsha neechcha Shukra+ uchcha Budha = rationalize and stay married by staying busy with mental transactions, communication systems esp writing, planning events, educating her children, etc.
Rahu-enflamed Kuja-Simha/11 =" high testosterone" and " alpha" personality to the first two spouses, who are both extremely energetic and sexually competitive. As the alpha slogan goes, " If you're not the lead dog, the view never changes."
Is there an indication of lifelong emotional troubles, despite material wealth, intelligence, fashionable beauty, and good children?
Yes, in navamsha: see the "permanent Sade Saati" of nishturabhasi yoga = Moon in bondage to neechcha Shani. This sorrow was activated by gochara Rahu-Ketu at the time of her parents' divorce.
Also, lagnesha Shukra in bhava-8 (husband's family) yuti the inauspicious L-3+L-6 Guru. Guru rises in navamsha lagna = the native 's experience as a spouse in marriage is not too happy - a lot of conflict and business administration, not too much love
