Kala Sarpa Yoga
Mussolini's nativity features a dramatic Rahu-in-lagna version of true KSY.
He was an
ideologue, who (willingly or not) sacrificed his private comfort to advance the
cause of family, party, or nation-state.
When Rahu-Ketu are in lagna and Kala-Sarpa yoga applies, the native is both
exhilarated and destroyed by the desires of the public.
It is a sign of
celebrity and often, when the wheel turns, disgrace. (Mussolini's house-8
graha ensure eventual self-destruction.)
= Rohini Chandra
= emotional need for attention of the parent, partner, or people =
According to wikipedia, Mussolini's personal life was nearly always
surging with intrigue:
Mussolini was first married to Ida Dalser in
Trento in 1914. The couple had a son one year later and named him
Benito Albino Mussolini. In December 1915, Mussolini married Rachele Guidi,
his mistress since 1910, and with his following political ascendency the
information about his first marriage was suppressed and both his first
wife and son were later persecuted. With Rachele, Mussolini had two
daughters, Edda (1910 - 1995) and Anna Maria (Forlž, Villa Carpena, 3
September 1929 - Rome, 25 April 1968), married in Ravenna on 11 June 1960
to Nando Pucci Negri, and three sons Vittorio (1916 - 1997), Bruno
(1918 - 1941), and Romano (1927 - 2006). Mussolini had a number of mistresses
among them Margherita Sarfatti and his final companion, Clara Petacci.
Furthermore, Mussolini had innumerable brief sexual encounters with female
supporters as reported by his biographer Nicholas Farrell."
weakened in dushamsha-8, nevertheless
some material value from the drishti upon dhana bhava. Mussolini did
acquire wealth in his life, but nearly all of it came from secret
Yogakaraka Shani which
might have provided him some corrective wisdom = disabled in 8.
Chandra Rohini "look at me!" + Mangala (war) +
Shani (perpetual sade sati, seeking unconditional love from women but
never satisfied) in 8 (catastrophic upheaval) = terrible capability to
destroy life in pursuit of rebirth for self and psychologically that
image of Self projected upon the Nation (as it is born) = Shani.
Mussolini's Fascist dictatorship was sustained by the most
brutal terrorism in modern history. Note the extraordinary strength of
Mussolini's randhra bhava and its lord Shukra.
Mussolini does not have the vital, self-righteous planets of a world-dominator like Hitler.
Unlike Hitler who controlled events until
the moment of his suicide, Mussolini was motivated by his
emotional need to be desired = uchcha Rohini
Soma = rather than his rather weaker rational intelligence.
The childish results might have been only
comical ... if M hadn't destroyed the lives of innocent millions during his
operations were fairly parochial. Mussolini's scope remained within the special
passions of Italy, with a few conquesting forays into weakened, culnerable states of the
surrounding regions (e.g., Ethiopia). His army was showy and immature; and his political hierarchy
brazenly, perversely corrupt.
Yet, Kala-Sarpa yoga kept him firmly in the grips of vision for a
sacrificial transformation of
the social order.
Shani-Rahu is a notoriously difficult period for most
In Mussolini's case, especially considering the KSY, the
difficulties quite overwhelmed him.

Ans. There is no doubt Kalasarpa
Yoga in Mussolini's horoscope; but the evil is tempered because the

One 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 - is the overwhelming strength of Shukra in his
Shukra = L-1+L-8 from
lagna and L-1+L-6 from Chandra.
Shukrarules the Vargottamshauchcha Moonin the secret,
self-indulgent, tantric 8th house.
Soma gives the
effect of Shukra from navamsha as well. Connotes great passion,tremendous
favor from women & lifelong extramarital endeavors.
Soma gives the effect of Budha from dashamsha, which amplifies the leadership
effects of radix Budha, facilitating speech-making and
the impression of being
an articulate, caring (Karka) father figure.
L-2+L-7 from Thula lagna =
L-7-L-12 from Rohini Chandra
Mangala = "double L-7"= sex and death
it is likely that his mother attempted to
destroy the pregnancy, due to significations of double L-7 maraka
Growing up in L-2+L-7 Mars period, little Benito no doubt enjoyed the benefits of
a strong body and the favor of women due to Kuja's proximity to uchcha Chandra.
But Kuja is warlike, acting out violently suppressed anger in house-8.
navamsha Kuja gives again the effect of the Moon, showing the incredible power
of the Mother and women in general in Mussolini's life.
Forced into the same
house with His enemy Shani (the force of conformism and rule of law) and ruled
by His enemy Shukra (pleasant behavior and sexual communication).
is a volcano of suppressed emotion.
The integral violence of Mussolini's character - which the radix chart suggests
is derived from both of his parents - was already active, in this self-defining
period of the lagnesha.
By age eight, he was
banned from his mother's church, and a few years later he was expelled from
school, due to stabbing a fellow student and throwing an ink pot at a teacher.
It is also a truth worth remembering in Jyotisha that in order for later
mahadasha to bear the fruit we might reasonably expect of them, the
early-in-life dasha must lay strong foundations for later growth. Early
mahadasha must be character-affirming and nourish the traits which bloom later.
Mars being such a strong and determinative planet in Mussolini's
terrorist-tyrant career, it laid a strong foundation for his later willful
arrogance and willingness to blame others for his crimes.

Mussolini presumed that the war would soon
be finished. Germany, well armed well disciplined and well
prepared, with a slave-labor factory system run from the
concentration camps, was conquering wildly with no opposition. At
the time he felt (Chandra) that Germany would control all Europe
in a matter of months.

their corpses violently abused during Shani-Rahu period. He was granted

writing his autobiography he was given the opportunity to reflect upon
the situation from his vantage point of protected seclusion. He knew his end
was near and he knew it would be violent due to the chaos, suffering, and hatred he had
Yet he was not tortured, but rather summarily shot with little personal
suffering except for the anxiety which impending death naturally
causes. Rahu in lagna provided a clear understanding of the
self-elevation process: M knew that what goes up, must comes down. Rahu occupies lagna = the physical form, in Swati, a nakshatra of Rahu and
Rahu gives effect of both L-6 Guru and L-8 Shukra.
