Observation –

American criminal, a spy and traitor. Boyhood friends with Chris Boyce, together in 1975-1976, they sold stolen documents to Soviet Agents in Mexico City for $70,000. They used the money to finance a small-time drug trade between Mexico and California. In April 1977, they were both convicted of treason and received a life sentence in Lompoc Federal prison.

Lee was nicknamed “Snowman” for his love of cocaine. As of 1994 he was a model prisoner, not eligible for parole.

Analysis –

Mars and Saturn combine in the 11th House. Mars is the Lagna Lord and Lord of 6th House of fraud and cheating. Saturn is the Lord of the 3rd House of habits and 4th house of masses.  It is also the sign of fraud and deceit.


In 4th House this combination makes the native a sinner and devoid of friends and happiness. He will not have a comfortable life.

She came from a very affluent background and after spending 2 years in Guatemala with the American Friends Service Committee program (AFSC). There after seeing the poverty, illiteracy and hunger amongst many such issues, she changed to become a radicle who was almost ashamed of affluence.

Analysis –

Saturn is the Lord of the Lagna and 2nd House of wealth and family. Mars the Lord of the 4th and 11th House represents mother, motherland and profession, honour etc. With Ruchuka Yoga bhang (Mars in a Kendra from Lagna and own house but with a debilitated planet) gave her the apathy for homeland and made her the terrorist. Mars is also Arms and Ammunition and Saturn is time.

Example- Henry Ford II, Saturn and Mars in the 7th House


American entrepreneur and noted family, the eldest son of Edsel Bryant Ford and grandson of industrial tycoon Henry Ford. When his dad died in 1943, he became Vice-president of the corporation and took over as Chairman of Ford Motor Company in 1945 when it was on the brink of bankruptcy and made it the top rank of industrial power.

Henry Ford II proved himself as a capable administrator, modernizing plants and negotiating contracts with union labor leaders, whom his grandfather abhorred. Wildcat strikes abated immediately. When he took office, the company was losing about $10 million a month. New management teams eliminated all debt and showed $200,000 profit by the end of the following year. By 1953, Ford Motor Company moved back up to being number two in the automotive industry.

Ford had two daughters and a son with Anne McDowell, whom he divorced in 1965. His dependence on alcohol began to escalate. One year later he married Christina Vettore, who was described as “the most glamorous, sophisticated peasant in the world.” Ford became the golden boy of the gossip columns, but Vettore couldn’t cope with a husband who worked 60 plus hours a week.

In 1979 he stepped down from being C.E.O. of Ford, but did not relinquish the Chairmanship until 1980. Alcohol and the stress of being a corporate mogul began to deteriorate his health.

Ford’s marriage to Christina ended in divorce in 1980. That same year he married former model Kathleen DuRoss.
