Gaṇḍānta Anthony Hopkins

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.

Gaṇḍānta Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy

Details about the chart can be read in a previous issue of the Jyotish Digest. In the chart of Y. Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR), Moon is in Mūla gaṇḍānta in the 12th bhāva. The exact position of the Moon at 1°28’ is just outside the Abhukta mūla range of 0°50’ indicating that the bay would survive. This gaṇḍānta afflicts the agni tattva and Sun is the lord of the 8th house as well in this chart.

Gaṇḍānta

Nakṣatra Gaṇḍānta

Gaṇḍa has been clearly defined by Nārada as the period of a prahara (3 hours) covering the junction of agni and jala rāśi. These junctions are (1) Jyeṣṭha-Mūla (in Scorpio-Sagittarius) , (2) Aśleṣā-Maghā (in Cancer-Leo) and (3) Revatī-Aśvinī (in Pisces-Aries).

Maharṣi Vasiṣṭha defines a flaw called ‘Abhukta Mūla’ for these three junctions and any child born during the 180 minutes when the Moon is at these junctions.
