Part 2

Another good example of a horoscope of chief of state is that of King Charles XII of Sweden, whose birth time was given in the recently published biography by R. M. Hatton.

The king was busily engaged in the battlefield during most of his reign (November 1697 to December 1718). Persia, Denmark, Norway, Poland and Russia all plotted against Sweden and in 1700 the Great Northern War was launched and ended only some two years at his death, with the Peace of Nystad (1721), which forced Sweden to relinquish nearly all her possessions. In July 1709, the entire Swedish army of 18,000 men was captured by Peter I (the Great) of Russia and Charles fled to Turkey, where he spent five years in exile and was then forced to leave. At his death in Norway on December 11, 1718 by an enemy bullet, Sweden was impoverished, many lives had been lost, her struggle for an empire ceased and she was no longer an important European country. The ambitions and futile wars, sometimes instigated by Charles himself, came to naught due to his Kalasarpa Yoga.

The horoscope of Louis Napoleon III of France furnishyes another instance where the head of state and his country suffer together owing to Kalasarpa Yoga in his horoscope. In his geniture you will notice that Rahu is above the horizon, both from the Lagna and Chandra Lagna.

He founded and wrecked the second Napoleonic empire. Like the preceding Charles V and Charles XII, he was a dreamer, had imperial ambitions for his county, but also had some good intentions. After he became Emperor on December 2, 1852, he got involved in several wars: tried to establish an empire in Mexico with his brother at the helm, only to see him assassinated; and was badly defeated by Persia in 1870. He was then required to abdicate in favour of a republic and went into exile in England, where he died  on January 9, 1873.

General John Churchill, 1st Duke of Mariborough, was not a chief of state, though through his wife, a great friend of Queen Anne, and through his son-in-law, the Lord High Treasurer, he wielded great influence and was virtual ruler of England from about 1702-10.

The greatest general of his day, he was Commander-in-Chief of the English armies and also ambassador to Holland, whose armies he had commenced, but it was not all sunshine. In cession, beginning in 1701. The Rahu Dasa had commenced, but it was not all sunshine. In 1692, he had been deprived of all his offices and temporarily imprisoned in the London Tower and did not return to royal favour for six years. But in 1702 he was highly honoured by the Queen as a Knight of the Garter and Made military commander. At the end of 1711, however, he was dismissed again from all offices and went abroad into exile. Three years later, he was back in favour and resumed his military offices. Then ill-health set in and he died at the end of June 1722 after his third stroke. Rahu aspected by Jupiter and in the 10th from the Moon elevated him, but his Kalasarpa Yoga caused breaks in his career.

The horoscope of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (“Bonnie Prince Charlie”) of the House of Stuart, shows how Kalasarpa Yoga finally put an end to this royal line.

This so-called “Young Pretender” to the English throne was the son of the “Old Pretender”, half-brother of Queen Anne, who aspired to become King James III. James, the Old Pretender, had himself made an unsuccessful attempt to become king in 1708. Then the Earl of Mar tried for him in 1715, but also failed. Prince Charles Edward then tried (for his father, not for himself), but this last attempt in 1745-46 was also a failure. He was completely defeated at the Battle of Culloden in April 1746, a price of 30,000 pounds was placed on his head, and he had to wander and hide until he managed to escape to France in September of that year. The fate of the House of Stuart was sealed, the Scots could no longer wear the kilt, and the calm system was dissolved.

Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, mother of James I, the first Stuart on the English throne, had Kalasarpa Yoga, and so did James I and his son, Charles I, when Oliver Cromwell beheaded as a tyrant and traitor. This ended the Stuart line until Charles II, after eleven years in exile, became the first king under the Restoration. Charles II did not have Kalasarpa Yoga, nor did any of his Stuart successors, the last of whom was Anne.
