Earthbody-Exit 07-July-1930 (age 71)
Sherlock Holmes crime-writer, ophthalmologist * 1859-1930 * Arthur Conan Doyle
birth data from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Conan_Doyle * tentatively rectified by BP Lama
charts, graphs and tables produced by Shri Jyoti Star * adapted by BP Lama
Punarvasu * Aditya * Purnavasi * Vutvrta * Jamitra
For Punarvasu births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.
For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.
Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge.
High forehead. Punarvasu often has a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.
Instructing, Explaining, Describing
Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 1-2-3 represents Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10- leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive capacity for evocative description or inspirational speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and detailed description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.
Karkata-pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophical principles. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Saptarishi versus local, undulating, motherly Somana. As master gardeners and natural herbal physicians, they understand the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding that develops into doctrine.
Although the Higher Teacher seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the guru-figure may also be adversarial, impoverished, polluted, or ailing (due to Brihaspati rules 6).
Themes of restoration of lost knowledge, gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 81
"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

Distinctive Features of the Nativity
Asta-harana Mangala +++ nichha-Surya-12
Dad = Charles Altamont Doyle .When C-D was young, dad suffered a severe mental breakdown, which was poorly diagnosed and violently mistreated, leaving Father with a terrible addiction and a destroyed ego. Father suffered alcoholism, epilepsy, and severe depression .
Dad self-medicated with alcohol, to the extreme of drinking industrial poisons in his disordered distress. His father despite high birth rank was remanded to an insane asylum and the family plunged into poverty. Conan-Doyle visited his father periodically and even included his father's artistic illustrations in some of the Sherlock Holmes serials, but dad was never released from the insane-prison.
After Charles Altamont Doyle's mental breakdown in mid-life, dad was institutionalized permanently, leaving the family in a state of struggle . Surya in bhava-12 suggests an invisible father. Mom developed a second, undisclosed alliance Chandra-8 . Thus neither parent is much supportive albeit there remains a safety net composed of uncles. friends of the family, mother's companion.
Dad remains a connected friend
Despite the grim prospects of 'dual diagnosis' mental illness combined with extreme alcoholism, dad was an artistically gifted and productive illustrator.
Father remained a working artist and C-D published several of his father's drawings in C-D's books. Mangala vriddhipathi provides a lifelong friendship with the dad as well. There is no abandonment or link-breaking between the father and son. Arthur Conan-Doyle accepted custodial responsibility and visiting dad regularly. Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle * Surya-yuti-Mangala as an adult, curated a show of his father's paintings and drawings

C-D maintained a lifelong relationship with his mother, but she was a secretive person Chandra in classroom-8 and not much is known of the details of her life. She knew about and even chaperoned his hidden affair-du-coeur of nine years while his wife was ailing. Chandra-8 + parivartamsha + mutual exchange + Shani-2 lends stability and longevity to the maternal role in his life.

2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra-8 = bhava-9 contains Rahu-9
Mangala-12 parivartamsha Zukra-11
A remarkable double parivartamsha++ viparita raja yoga harsha yoga ** allowed C-D to describe the most heinous and gruesome crimes and explore the world of criminal insanity with no harmful consequences. In fact, he built a tremendous career upon materials of violent crime and social disease, due mainly to the benefits of Mangala rogesha providing a powerful Vimala Yoga.
Conan-Doyle belonged to a large community of occult practitioners He had a large fan-base of devoted readers for decades, and his income was eventually quite substantial. His widow lived from the proceeds of his literary estate for the rest of her life, and his children also inherited some profits.
literary author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries
for over a century, this continuously popular literature has never fallen out of print
Lagnesha Bandesha Budha = deeply patriotic Also many sea-voyages,
C-D regularly about national politics and giving his characters a thoroughly British profile. A staunch home-owner, who once left Britain moving to Switzerland for his wife's health, but couldn't endure the loss of familiar habit (4) and moved back home.
Guru-1 receives amplifying drishti of Rahu.
Guru-1 rules Meena Arudha lagna = bhava-10 C-D provided several varieties of social leadership, but with karmesha in 1 he was best known just for being himself. Overwhelmingly his British reputation was characterized by his leading role in the psychism of the day = Meena imagination dreams.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu occupies Simha-3 karakamsha
Although one of the most famous English-language writers of the past three centuries and certainly a leading figure in detective fiction (crime fiction) C-D nevertheless expressed a perpetual ambivalence about writing in general and particularly about Sherlock Holmes the hero (Simha).\
