Visaka * Radha
For Visaka natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.
Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka.
Guru-ruled Visaka gentlemen may be found on battlefields, in corporate boardrooms, at the strategic director level of organizations. They may also appear in therapeutic settings encouraging personal growth, doing scientific research with lightning, in botany working with roots and branches, as high-voltage electrical engineers, as shakti-pat spiritual guides, and in project development roles.
Visaka have a remarkable capacity for wide-scope vision (Guru). Their very-large-scale military skills are famed. Visaka's ultimate goal is to bring the combatants to the bargaining table, but there may be considerable carnage before a peace treaty becomes viable. In Visaka's view, the growth of understanding requires first a battle to blast out blockages, then the jubilant sending out of new shoots. Visaka can be short-tempered in their impatience to expand, and they seem to be always shooting or sending out feelers, tentacles, or branches.
Themes of shocking growth and widening, expansion via root-splitting, and development of understanding via electromagnetic shakti-lightning may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.
"... Aggressiveness and impatience.
These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.
They are very active but not popular,
they are very proud
their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.
they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,
Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."

| Distinctive Features of the Nativity|
father: reputed to be a frequently alcoholic unemployed who was violent toward his children; yet as a passionate revolutionary socialist he formed a strong ideological bond with his son, who grew to become a bully and ideologue like his political father.
Surya-yuti-Budha in Karaka-10 suggests that he provided a strong role model and was a community activist Vriddhipathi-11 in 10
Surya-10 defines his glorious visibility = ruler of bhava-11 commonwealth of workers the masses and the classes
mother: reputed to be a devout Roman Catholic, mother of three, and local schoolteacher. Her income sustained the family. Despite his being a poor student, mother arranged for young Mussolini to obtain a teacher's license so that he would have an income. Chandra + Shani-yuti-Kuja in bhava-8 suggests that she operated under cover.
the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = bhava-5 politics, drama
Rohini Chandra + Mangala + Shani = "look at me, desire me"
Mussolini does not have the vital, self-righteous nativity of a world-dominator like genocidal Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler . Unlike Hitler who controlled events until the moment of his (purported) suicide, Mussolini was motivated by his emotional need to be desired = uttama Rohini Soma. The childish attention-seeking results might have been only comical ... if M hadn't destroyed the lives of innocent millions during his nurture-seeking process.
His operations were mainly nationalistic (Chandra) localized, and parochially focused on Making Italia Great Again. Mussolini's scope remained within the special passions of Italy, with a few conquesting forays into weakened, vulnerable states of the surrounding regions (e.g., Ethiopia, Libya, Albania).
Chandra-yuti-Mangala + Shani = clustered in the shad-ashtaka 6/8 from Rahu = a great deal of emotionally polarizing catalysis with rigid religious dogma and with the parents, especially the mother (Chandra)
Mangala-8 ruler of bhava-2 speech gave Mussolini the power to say whatever was most forcefully provocative of change. He spoke violently, with accountability only to the revolutionary process (8).
Guru-9 ideology, theory, paradigm of belief, idealism rules Vishaka radical lagna
Guru-9 mutual drishti into Rahu-1
Mussolini was seen by many as a patriarchal father-figure
Mussolini's propaganda machine rivaled Hitler's. Anyone who questioned or contradicted was simply murdered, and people simply accepted the brutality, because Mafiosi violence was embedded in the folk traditions (bandesha-4 Guru in 9.
Rahu-1 is ruled by and casts drishti upon atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra-9 multiplied by professorial, priestly, father-figure Guru-9. Mussolini appeared to outsiders as a somewhat plumpish, bombastic, primping, self-indulgent sensualist. However he was hugely popular in his homeland which was accustomed to rule by lavishly dressed preaching and proclaiming priestly figures.
atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra rules jamna lagna Vrishabha = randhrasthana containing the bitter Nishturabashi yoga
Women melted their gold wedding rings to send to Mussolini. He was remarkably attractive to women.
According to wikipedia, as he gained political power, Mussolini's marital life was characterized by an expedient facade of respectability covering a pattern of lifetime infidelity and multiplicity in his intimate relationships.
marriage-1 * to Ida Dalser in Trento Italy. If this marriage did occur, it would have been before 1913 during the chidra-dasha Rahu-Kuja period which would certainly have been a less benevolent time for marriage. Following Mussolini's political ascendency, evidence of his first marriage was destroyed. Both wife-1 and son-1 were murdered y fascisti government agents.
With Rachele, Mussolini had five children. Mussolini had also some well-known extramarital companions, among them Margherita Sarfatti and his final accomplice, Clara Petacci. Furthermore, Mussolini had innumerable brief sexual encounters with female supporters . atamakaraka Zukra + Guru provides an array of feminine companionship.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Never responsible to the visible, socially fixed order of law. Shani the lawgiver rules the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra suggesting one who is a secretive agent of governance due to Shani resding in the undisclosed, secretive 8th bhava
emotionally punitive Nishturabashi yoga in bhava-8, within-1-degree-orb
A key to Mussolini's extraordinary life as a gifted, prayed-for savior to rescue Italy from chaos and anarchy - who became a terrorist dictator and executioner of millions = the enduring power of merciless SHANI
Terrorism was Mussolini's primary strategy. bhava-8 = terror contains Shani-Chandra-Kuja. Shani-Chandra within one degree of orb.
Mussolini's Fascist dictatorship was sustained by some of the most brutal terrorism in modern history. Typical of his cohort of extremely narcissistic dictators during the 20th century, Mussolini was raised with violence and conditioned to be unafraid of it.
Nishturabashi yoga indicates the great difficulty of his mother imposing conditions on her love for the boy, rather than offering unconditional love as mothers are generally wont to do. Adults with Nishturabashi yoga having been wounded by mother's refusal to accept the child may become perpetrators of vicious punishment.
From a Jyotisha perspective, it could be assessed that Mussolini's core motive was neither social justice nor the advance of civilization nor indeed the welfare of other persons on any level. As compensation for a brutal childhood deprived of parental affection and punished by vicious authoritarian masters (Nishturabashi yoga in bhava-9 religious doctrine = rogesha-6 slave master Shani), young Benito craved the soothing balm of personal luxury and personal wealth entitlements in massive, limitless, trauma-compensatory amounts.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Kala Sarpa Yoga Ananta * Rahu-1 type of KSY
Rahu-1 occupies 6th-from-Chandra + 6th-from-Shani + 6th-from-Mangala
Rahu-1 Thula with such dramatic empowerment including Rahu's drishti to 5 (ploliyics) 7 (legal arrangements, albeit Ketu-7 indicates disregard for law) and 9 (dogma, beliefs)
Rahu the Rogue : what goes up, must come down
Rahu drishti into atmakaraka lagnesha Zukra (catastrophe) + rogesha Guru (crime, disagreement)
Rahu in bhava-1 = megalomania * Rahu's ruler atmakaraka Zukra is further inflated Zukra-yuti-Guru
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu-7 made it possible for Mussolini to promise (7) anything regarding social equity, claim anything about justice, assert anything about fair distribution of treasury - with no accountability, no transparency, no personal consequences, and no government control.

[BPL note, Raman would have written this answer in approx. 1942 as gochara Shani passed over the center of Mussolini's janma rashi = Vrishabha.]
"Q. 48. - Is there Kalasarpa Yoga in [Benito] Mussolini's horoscope ?
Ans. There is no doubt Kalasarpa Yoga in Mussolini's horoscope; but the evil is tempered because the planets are hemmed in not between Rahu and Ketu but between Ketu and Rahu.
This is quite unfavourable and will have a very adverse effect especially that Saturn is at present transiting Mussolini's Janma Rashi, in which are placed Saturn and Mars."
