Mūla 1st Pada: Anthony Hopkins

In the chart of Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins Moon is in Mūla gaṇḍānta at 1°04’ just outside the Abhukta range. It is very similar to the chart of  Charles Farrar Browne and acts as the 8th lord in Lagna which gives great fame especially from a foreign country. Yet it is not alone. It conjoins the Sun, Mercury and Venus which generate a siṁhāsana yoga[1], dharma-karmādhipati yoga[2], Nipuṇa yoga[3] etc.

  1. As the 7th lord in Lagna Mercury overpowers the Moon to determine the daśā (fortune, destiny) as Dvisaptati sama daśā (72 year cycles) instead of the Moon determined Vimśottari daśā (120 years).
  2. This placement of lagneśa in 7th bhāva or 7th lord in lagna automatically empowers Venus to guide and protect the chart as it is the significator of the 7th bhāva. In addition, Venus is also in lagna conjoining the 7th bhāva.
  3. Kāla-amṛta yoga is present in this chart as all planets are in the half from Rāhu to Ketu reckoned in the zodiacal direction. This makes Ketu the dominant planet of the chart and protector and guide. Because of this feature Ketu will not cause the untold suffering that one born in Mūla gaṇḍānta has to face.
  4. Finally, there is a parivartana yoga between Jupiter which is both śubhapati (lord of Moon sign) and lagneśa and Saturn. This causes transfer of the evils of gaṇḍānta to Saturn thereby diverting the shocks and suffering.

These factors have caused the shift of the mūla gaṇḍānta to a house of Saturn instead of killing the native. Yet mars as the controller of agni tattva does its bit and he is the only child of his parents as Mars in the third bhāva destroys the siblings. Saturn is also the lord of 3rd bhāva and this is where the mūla doṣa shifted leaving the lagna to prosper. The Sun is in Lagna and he suffers from dyslexia performing very poorly at school even when he was a superb in the arts. Hopkins attended the Jones’ West Monmouth Boys School in Pontypool and then later in Cowbridge Grammer School. His path in life was very blurred until he met Richard Burton at the age of 15, which encouraged him to try acting. As a result, he joined the College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. The rest is history.

While we may attribute his three marriages to the kṛṣṇa caturdasī doṣa, but this seems to be yet another strange feature of the mūla 1st pada gaṇḍānta. It could the Mercury doṣa of Sagittarius[4] and Mercury is the 7th lord from the sign.


[1] Mercury as 10th lord in lagna promises brilliance in its line of work – he is a very versatile actor

[2] Mercury as 10th lord and Sun as 9th lord

[3] Conjunction of Mercury and Sun gives great skill relating to at least one line of activity, especially when related to lagna or 10th bhāva.

[4] Seven mixed form signs have doṣa (flaws). Pisces – Sun, Aquarius – Moon, Libra – Mars, Sagittarius – Mercury, Capricorn – Jupiter, Gemini – Venus, Virgo – Saturn. Graha devatā mantra removes doṣa quickly.
