For interpretation of Mars and Venus in Mr Clinton’s Birth chart please refer to my earlier post.
Let us take a look at some of the other planets in Mr Clinton’s Natal Chart with respect to Lal Kitab Astrology.
In this post I will also explain a few concepts of Lal Kitab Astrology namely Takraav (Colliding Planets) and Qurbaani ke Grah (Scapegoat planets). These concepts are often misunderstood.
In Lal Kitab Astrology planets are also indicator of family members. For example Jupiter represents Grand Father and Father, Sun represents Father, Moon represents Mother, Venus represents Spouse, Mars represents Brothers etc.
There is also a concept of friendly and enemy planets. For example Moon is on friendly terms with Jupiter, Sun and Moon.
Takraav (Colliding Planets)
Planets in 1st house will strike and to some extent destroy the planet in 8th house (friend or foe). Besides 1-8, a few other placements are seen as Takraav and I will mention them in other posts.
Qurbaani Ke Grah (Scapegoat Planets)
Whenever a planet is afflicted it will seek some other planet (as scapegoat) to pass some/all of its affliction. For example an afflicted moon will pass on its troubles to Sun, Jupiter and Mars.
Mr Bill Clinton
In Mr Clinton’s natal chart Moon is in Takraav (8th from Mars and Venus). Moon is afflicted and will seek the help of its friends Mars, Jupiter and Sun to share this affliction.
As mentioned above Moon represents Mother, Jupiter and Sun Represent Father and Mars represents Brothers in Lal Kitab Astrology.
Three months before Mr Clinton was born, his father died tragically in a car accident.
In the above chart Moon is afflicted (Widowed Mother). Jupiter is the scapegoat planet (early death of Father).
Such tragic events happened even before the birth of the native. Such events in Lal Kitab terminology will be termed as Grah Phal (Fate) as the native had no control over them.
Mars in first house is very auspicious. It helps the native develop a healthy ego (required for worldly success).
Venus in the first house is capable of giving the native a highly prestigious governmental/administrative post. On the negative side, this placement of Venus may cause some scandal.
Detailed interpretation of Mars and Venus in Mr Clinton’s chart can be found in my earlier post.
Notice the presence of North Node (Rahu) in 9th house . In lal Kitab 9th house is the house of Jupiter. In this chart Rahu is in Takraav from Jupiter. The native could face accusations of or could be a victim of fraud. Due care should be exercised to ensure transparency in all financial activities.
Saturn in 10th and 11th house is said to be in its own house in Lal Kitab Astrology. 11th Saturn has been called in Lal Kitab as architect of fate. There is a lot of scope to exercise free will and achieve success with this placement of Saturn.
Mercury in 11th house is with a friendly planet Saturn. According to Lal Kitab the native with Mercury in 11th house should be extra careful between the ages of 32 and 34. This Mercury and North Node in 9th house require that the native be very careful and transparent in all his financial dealings. Whitewater controversy surfaced around this time. However no indictments were ever made against the Clintons
I quote the following from Wikipedia to get an idea about the political contributions of Mr Clinton just after his age of 34 as 11th Mercury generally gives very good results after the age of 34.
“In the early 1980s, Clinton made reform of the Arkansas education system a top priority. The Arkansas Education Standards Committee, chaired by Clinton’s wife, attorney and Legal Services Corporation chair Hillary Rodham Clinton, succeeded in reforming the education system, transforming it from the worst in the nation into one of the best. Many have considered this the greatest achievement of the Clinton governorship.”
Notice the emphasis on education.
Interest in music and communications (Mercury), Law and Justice (Saturn) is verified by life events.
Success in politics came largely due to Mars in 1st house (Sword of Justice in Lal Kitab), and Saturn in 11th house.
Auspicious Saturn in Lal Kitab has been called as Kalam Vidhaata (blessing of God, writer of destiny). If Saturn is benevolent in a chart then aspirations of the native will fructify. Saturn provides the native with the wisdom to choose the right course of action and the perseverance to stick to that course of action.
Generally Moon in 8th is not considered good for education but in this chart Saturn and Mercury in 11th, Mars in 1st and Jupiter in 2nd house is very good for academic pursuits.
Mr Clinton’s chart is very interesting to me because despite a difficult childhood (Fate) he went on to become the elected Head of State of his country (Fate? maybe, Free will? definitely). His horoscope indicates both; fate (circumstances over which he had no/little control) and free will (choosing the right career for instance.)
