Johnny Depp- A Vedic Astrology Horoscope Profile

Johnny Depp is one of the most prominent actors in the world and in this article we propose to examine the manner in which the dicta of classical Vedic astrology map to the various features of his life.

Johnny Depp Birth Data-
At Lois Rodden’s Astrodatabank, the following birth data for Depp has an AA rating indicating an accurate time of birth-

Natal Chart

Date:          June 9, 1963

Time:          8:44:00 am

Time Zone:     6:00:00 (West of GMT)

Place:         87 W 06' 48", 37 N 46' 27"

Owensboro, Kentucky, USA

The Rāśi Chakra for Johnny Depp’s horoscope is given below-

 
Beginnings-
Depp was born in relatively ordinary circumstances and was a high school drop-out who started playing rock music in garage bands in his childhood. See Cancer Ascendant/ Karkaṭa/Karkata Lagna in Papa-Kartari Yoga formed by Rāhu/ Rahu in the 12th House and Mars in the 2nd House.

The exaltation of Rāhu in the 12th Bhāva of dissipation and self-negation shows rocky beginnings to life, especially as the 8th Lord.

Mass Adulation And Success-
We are however more concerned with the massive adulation and success he has received. We must always note that the masses are indicated by Saturn and for people in the entertainment industry a strong Saturn is very beneficial. The reason, apart from the support and popularity from the masses, is that Saturn is exalted in a Rāśi/ Rashi/ sign ruled by Venus, which is the significator for entertainment and movie-making.

Mahapurusha Yoga-
In this chart, Saturn is in its own sign of Capricorn/ Makara in a Keṅdra Bhāva/ Kendra Bhava/ quadrant forming the Śaśa Mahāpuruṣa/ Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga. What is more, Saturn also has 100% Digbala/ directional strength in the 7th House. It is supremely strong.  

Wealth/ Highest Paid Actor-
Johnny Depp’s reputed status of being the highest paid Hollywood star is explained simply from the Rāśi Chakra. The 11th House is the house of gains and of the multiplication of wealth. The 2nd Lord of money and liquidity is the Sun itself who is also the Naisargika Kāraka/Natural Significator for resources. It is placed in the 11th Bhāva with the 11th Lord Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra and the significator for money which is Mercury/Budha. This is a very powerful Dhana Yoga for wealth especially as Venus, the 11th Lord is in its own sign Taurus/ Vṛṣabha/ Vrishabha. This sign is also the natural 2nd House of the zodiac.

The 11th Bhāva also has the Ārūḍha Lagna with three strong planets there and so he is known for his massive wealth.

Marriage and Impact on Career-
It was his first wife Lori Anne Allison who kick started his career which is evident from the fact that the Upapada Lagna is in the 10th House from the Lagna which is the Karma Bhāva.

Faith-
With Jupiter in the 9th House of religion one of the best known facets of Jupiter comes through in his life. Gurū is Nirguṇa Brahman or Sāmba Śiva which is formless faith in destiny or divinity. This is precisely what Depp said on Larry King Live. Pisces, where Jupiter is placed also indicates the feet and Depp has said that he believes and has faith that everything will be alright as long as you keep moving forward (which is akin to walking).

Jupiter, Moon, Ketu and Rāhu all directly influence the 11th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna showing manifest sources of gains. This is a celebrity chart which has standard form combinations for wealth, fame and acclaim.

Personally-
As a person Johnny Depp is not on sure ground and therefore he finds growth the best way to live. In other words his personal moorings are contingent on how much of his reality his mind and consciousness can assimilate. This is indicated by the Dhimantaha Yoga formed by the Lagna Lord Moon in the 6th House. The Moon in this chart indicates all three of the body, mind, intellect continuum and since the 6th House is a natural Uapacaya house of growth, he must keep growing as a human being.

His growth patterns have psychedelic hues as Cañdra/ Chandra is joined Ketu in the 6th House in an eclipse combination. His personal psychology is quite afflicted as Rāhu also aspects.

Affliction and Controversy-
This affliction is mostly evident in the public domain as his attempts to claim some native American ancestry as the Lagna Lord is the roots and the origins of birth and also labelling the country of his birth ‘a dumb puppy with big teeth’ and ‘a broken toy’.

Properties-
Correspondingly, Depp’s properties abroad in Europe have generated interested. The Caturthāmśa Cakra/ Chaturthamsha Chakra/ D-4 chart relates to properties and is a finer picture of the 4th House from the Lagna.  This divisional chart is given below for reference-

 
While it is true that the Lagna Lord Saturn is exalted in the 10th House showing huge properties no matter where they are, it is retrograde and acts as if it is debilitated. In this chart, the 10th House acts as a Māraka or problem maker for the properties. In view of its strength, it has meant going out of the country of birth to acquire properties.

The 4th Lord is the most important and is in the 8th from the 4th, though in its own sign and so again promotes properties abroad. The Virodha Argala or obstructing intervention of Rāhu from the 3rd House from the Lagna ensures the foreign influence in properties. It is the Argala of Venus and Mercury from the 5th House which ensures excellent properties.

The Weird  And Quirky-

A large number of Depp’s major successes have come from him playing weird and quirky roles. This is fundamentally due to the association of Ketu with the Lagna Lord Moon in the Rāśi Chakra and even more dominantly due to the placement of Ketu in the Lagna in the Navāmśa/ Navamsha Chakra/ the D-9 chart.

The Navāmśa Chakra has far greater weight when it comes to determining inner proclivities and skill structures, innate and acquired.

The D-9 chart is given below for reference-

 
Ketu is exalted and Rāhu aspects the Lagna from its own exaltation sign in the 7th House. It is not correct to quip that he is a European ‘wannabe’ as with increasing age Sun’s love for order and decorum in the 9th House will become a dominant part of his personality with the efflux of time.

Vedic Astrology- Its Importance in Life for the Modern Man

Vedic astrology can guide the musings of the modern man in all their width.

Thoughts of the Modern Man-

When one wonders as to the purpose of existence, and more particularly, individual existence, world philosophies all give elevated answers.

Why birth?

The reason for birth is furnished by the Ātmakāraka/ Atmakaraka in Vedic Astrology, and how that purpose will be accomplished, is illustrated by the lord of the Ascendant/ Lagna Lord.

The Ātmakāraka is the significator of the soul and is an index for dispensing with past Karma. In that sense it is like the 8th Lord from the Udaya Lagna. When the individual comes to the right path which will aid him in fulfilling the reason for his birth, the stressful nature of the Ātmakāraka abates and it becomes favourable.

It is for such reasons that Parāśara/ Parashara has termed the Ātmakāraka the King of the Horoscope. Therefore when we have a question in the mind as to what is this all for, we need to evaluate the Ātmakāraka and see what the Graha is telling us about the life path.

How Am I Going To Go Through This Life?

The propensities of the self for this life are in the Lagna/ Ascendant and the lord of the Ascendant/ Lagna Lord. This is how life circumstance and the functional intelligence wade through the Karma intended to be traversed through a given life.

 

The Others in My Life-

When we turn the focus on the other, rather than one’s own self, then we come to the 7th House and the 7th Lord. As youngsters we are looking at romantic partners, boyfriends and girlfriends, and later at spouses.

Both birth and death are immutable truths called the Satya Pītha. As surely as we have come, we shall go. The other shares in our journey. These others have souls and the soul interaction with the others is shown by the Dārākāraka/ Darakaraka and since the indicator of the Self is the planet farthest advanced by degrees, the indicator of the other is the planet least advanced by degrees and these two show the soul spectrum at opposing extremes.

 

 

The Proof of the Pudding-

Propensity is one thing and manifestation is quite another. In our lives what comes into being and enacts the play is oftentimes more important and manifest realities are indicated by the Ārūḍha Padas/ Arudha Padas.

When we wish to examine the visible manifestation of our lives, we must see the Ārūḍha Lagna. [And in a similar vein, other Special Ascendants/Viśeṣa Lagna.]

Even the others, such as intimate friends and spouses are shown in the horoscope by the Ārūḍha Padas, such as the Dārāpada/ Darapada and the Upapada Lagna. Their relative positioning from the Ārūḍha Lagna shows the felicity of these relationships in manifest life which is visible to us and to others. In the Upadeśa Sūtras we find some other gems related to wealth manifestation through the Śrīmaṅtaḥa Yoga calculated by certain placements of these Ārūḍha Padas.

Figuring It Out-

For any person who is awake, making sense of life is crucial for satisfaction and no amount of material abundance can replace this. No amount of penury and oppression can quell the quest either. When life changes its hues, the more dynamic facets of the horoscope come into play. These are the ages of maturity of the planets and the Bhāvas/ Bhavas/ houses as well as the Daśās/ Dasas/ Dashas.

It is important to make sense of sudden changes in life which can come with the change in Daśās. It is virtually like flipping a switch and the whole complexion of things can change, especially if the planets are strong and are powerfully placed in the horoscope. This can be a direct and quite palpable evidence of Karma- nothing else can explain the radical shifts which sometimes manifest.

Specific Life Areas of Life: Marriage, Career et al-

Understanding and the need for understanding can be acute in certain persons and can extend to specific life areas. If someone seeks to investigate why life has been a certain way, for better or for worse, in relationships and marriage then the Navāmśa/ Navamsha Chakra or the D-9 chart holds the key.

Now the divisional charts are elaborated in all the major classics of Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa but Upadeśa from Gurūs and from secret traditions of ancient yore is required to unlock their magic. In this context, the D-9 and the D-60 are given the highest weight, even more than the Rāśi Chakra. The D-60 or the Shashtyamsha/ Ṣaśṭhyāmśa chart is at the highest level as it contains the sum total of the past Karma to be experienced. The real usage of many of the divisional charts is locked in secrecy and we reveal it as and when the occasion arises.

Now, to not digress from the point, it is therefore true than when one wonders about the finest intricacy of the career or the inheritance, the sevret doctrine relating to the Daśāmśa Chakra/ Dashamsha and the Dwādaśāmśa Cakra respectively will come into play.

Freedom & Determinism-

Absolutely everything in contemporary life can be deciphered in this manner. Life passes and in its passing we should know as much as we can, and navigate with as much perspective as we can garner. We cannot always control what happens but we do have a possible opportunity to try and know why something is happening or why things turned out the way they did and what is the likely shape they might acquire in the future. This can help us to tap into the right areas  in life and to avoid others, especially that which appears attractive for one reason or another but is as best nothing more than a whim, and at worst something to be stayed away from at all costs.

There is not one fixity in Karma, and not one freedom. There are many fates and many choices. Karma is very fluid- its sacred study frees, rather than binds.

Wealth-

A very large number of people are besotted with issues surrounding money. It is simply one of the overarching concerns in manifest life and this is due to the overwhelming prowess of the planet Budha/Mercury in life. One major component of Rajas comes from this planet.

And so there is little surprise that a study of wealth in a horoscope is aided by numerous formulae spanning several (divisional) charts and Yogas in those charts. Dhana Yogas are very important in the horoscope and more specially in the Hora chart prescribed by the Nāḍīs.

Family-

There is an entirely different chart for siblings, another for elders such as parents and grandparents with set rules for each. Children have yet another separate chart devoted to them as thus the spouse, though all studies start advisedly from the Rāśi Chakra. They find their specific expression and culmination in the Varga Chakra.

I Need Answers-

And not just the freedom to ask questions. The answers to the life process and life choices and the possible scenarios in which things will play out can only be furnished through Vedic astrology. There is no other complete system known to mankind which is both profoundly spiritual and pragmatic and which can infuse every moment with unparalleled awareness.

Profound impact of specifics such as Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna and Digbala as well as Doṣa and Śrāpa can give the answers to some of the biggest questions and choices in life. Blessings can potent planetary placements can completely alter the hue and tenor of life. Skill sets and destined events/the Hand of God can be studies astutely to know how these qualities will influence and change apparent realities.

The Big Picture & the Fine Print-

Both the large letters and the fine print with which the story of life is written can be understood in Jyotiṣa. Argalā/ Argala and such methodologies can accurately depict the influence of people and entities on one another and this includes events and actions as well.

21st Century-

This century is overwhelmingly dependent on this wisdom as our progress forward at great pace puts us at risk of more than proportional vulnerability. We feel we are invincible (as before the recession in certain countries, and before immigrant professionals faced a change of stimuli at the same time, as in countries such as India where consumerist aping has led to a glut of uselessness) and then we find we are not. We find we are lost, without the moorings that held us, and astray in a turbulent ocean of our own making, the rise and ebb of which we do not understand or control. What then?

We need fierce progress but with perspective and illumination; in our desire to find, let us not move blindly and discard impossibly valuable divine maps which can make our journeys truly magnificent, with all their contours.

Hindu New Year Chart in Vedic Astrology-2015/ Chaitra Shukla Paksha Pratipada/ Caitra Śukla Pakṣa Pratipadā-2015


The Hindus have always started their new year in the lunar month of Chaitra/ Caitra, on the first day (Pratipadā) of the bright half, the Śukla Pakṣa.

This Hindu New Year in the year 2015 started with the following data-

Lunar Year

Date:          March 20, 2015

Time:          3:06:42 pm

Time Zone:     5:30:00 (East of GMT)

Place:         77 E 12' 00", 28 N 36' 00"

New Delhi, India

 

The chart is given below for reference-

 

 

 
The Ascendant/ Lagna is Cancer/ Karkata/ Karkaṭa and exalted Jupiter is placed here. Cancer has the power to take away many evils and problems and Jupiter in exaltation in the Lagna is a singular blessing. Sincere prayers this year are likely to bear immediate fruit.

The country is likely to be very pragmatic this year even though a strong sense of values is likely to pervade the populace.

The Vāra lord/ Vara lord in the Panchanga/ Pañcāṅga is Śukra/ Shukra/ Venus and the planet is placed in the 10th House. This is an excellent Yoga. The leaders of the nation will act with zeal and energy and with a certain precision which works well in matters of governance.

The Hora/ Horā lord is Budha/ Mercury and is placed in the 8th House. Mercury focuses on business and commerce and yields surprising benefits as Viparīta Rāja Yoga/ Viparita Raja Yoga is formed with Mercury being the 3rd and the 12th lord in the 8th House from the Lagna.

With the Lagneśa Cañdra/ Chandra/ the Moon in the 9th House there is likely to be considerable grappling when it comes to new legislation. The Moon is afflicted by four malefics- Mars/Maṅgala/Mangala, the Sun/ Sūrya/ Surya, Ketu and the aspect of Rāhu/ Rahu. Even so, Mars is the Yogakāraka for Karkaṭa Lagna and Ketu is also the 5th Lord. The Sun is the 2nd lord of liquidity. With the 10th Lord in the 9th House and the 9th Lord Jupiter aspecting, the year will be positive for law-making.

With Saturn in the Ārūḍha Lagna in Scorpio, basic necessities, poverty alleviation and the common man remain the focus but the income into the country through forex reserves and other parameters is very healthy with as many as five planets directly influencing. Foreign relations come into sharp focus and will be working on a very strong footing with Rāhu in Mūlatṛkoṇa in the 11th Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna.

Major Vedic Astrology Planetary Transits/ Graha Gochara in March 2015

The Vedic Moon/ Chandra/ Cañdra transits into Sagittarius/ Dhanusha/ Dhanuṣa, crossing the Gaṅdāṅta/ Gandanta region between Scorpio and Sagittarius, on March 14, 2015.

This is at the same time that the great luminary, the Sun/ Surya/ Sūrya is in Saṅkrāṅti as well, in the concluding regions of Aquarius/ Kumbha and travelling to Pisces/ Meena/Mīna Rāśi.

Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra has just moved into Aries/ Mesha/Meṣa from its exaltation in Pisces at this time and is barely at 2 degrees of arc of longitude traversed.

Some serious thresholds of Karma are being crossed whether one realises or not. The Gaṅdāṅta/ Gandanta are the junctional regions between the opposing elements of Water/ Jala Tattwa and Fire/ Agni Tattwa and thus embody conflict. It this is very conspicuous from the Ārūḍha Lagna then it will manifest, else the oppositional strains will be experienced in the subconscious.

Experience is one thing and Karmic movement quite another; they may coincide but are not the same.

With Venus having crossed the Gaṅdāṅta it is now time for new beginnings in matters of relationship, love and marriage. Altogether too energetic an impetus in Aries but the fall in experience which came from poorly considered choice while the preceptor was in Mīna is now a thing of the past. No matter how impulsive we are, the one who comes  into life will be imbued with the best qualities of Venus.

The Sun is the power and the light for all life and for all human beings. The Sun is considered weak while in Saṅkrāṅti/ Sankranti.

There is need for caution in this because Sun has the power to punish being the King and has Daṅḍa/ Danda. When the King is vulnerable and feeling exposed owing to the change, it is best to keep on His right side.

The Sun is going to be in Pisces/Mīna/ Meena Rāśi ruled by Gurū/ Guru/ Jupiter and so those who are ruled or impacted strongly by the Sun and Jupiter in some way, by lordship of crucial determinants in the horoscope, or placement in equally conspicuous Bhāvas/ Bhavas will be greatly benefitted.

The reason for this is that Sun and Jupiter are great friends and the Sun brings in all the resources to Pisces and the house occupied by the sign in the horoscope. The Sambandha is fortified by the aspect of Jupiter in exaltation in Cancer/ Karkaṭa Rāśi to Pisces. The sign Meena will have a surfeit of fire and light with Sun, Mars and Ketu there and with the benefic aspect of Jupiter there, the realms of wisdom, orthodox knowledge, esoteric arts, finance, law, foreign lands, Ashrams, hospitals all benefit and become the sources of benefit in myriad ways depending on the context.

The experience from Venus definitely comes in stressed surroundings but Venus is intent on doing good and one may extend lack of trust to one’s own self in this transit rather than having even the slightest element of mistrust for the other.

The Moon comes out of debility and conjunction with Saturn to the width and optimism of Sagittarius and therefore we can certainly say that the atmosphere is dominated by the grace of Jupiter.

The transit chart illustrating and preceding some other changes is given below-

Ben Affleck- A Vedic Astrology Horoscope Profile/ Analysis

Ben Affleck, born Benjamin Geza Affleck-Boldt, has the following birth data which has been deemed to be very accurate at Lois Rodden’s Astrodatabank and has an AA rating:

Birth Data-

Date:          August 15, 1972

Time:          2:52:31 am (rectified by us)

Time Zone:     7:00:00 (West of GMT)

Place:         122 W 16' 18", 37 N 52' 18"

Berkeley, California, USA

Note- One has seen it fit to rectify the birth time minutely by moving it back by 29 seconds from 2:53 AM for reasons which shall be given later in this article. This is not a final rectification but an essential one for the purposes of this study.

Rāśi Chakra-
Ben Affleck is born in Gemini Ascendant/ Mithuna Lagna and the Rāśi Chakra is extracted below for ready reference-


 
The first thing I note about Ben Affleck’s Rāśi/ Rashi Chakra in the Vedic Astrology framework is that human signs dominate the Satya Pītha, viz. the Lagna/ Ascendant and the 7th House. the human signs are the dual or mutable signs and indicate the quality of intelligence.

Indeed, Gwyneth Paltrow has characterised Ben Affleck as ‘super-intelligent’. This is important because the Satya Pītha houses define the individual and his interaction and participation in the world with others. His coming into, and passing from, this world are also decided from these two houses.
Core Karma-

The core Karma is reflected in the Yoga in the Satya Pītha Bhāva/ Bhava in that Dwi-Gurū/ Guru Yoga is formed with Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra and Jupiter/ Gurū/ Guru aspecting each other with their 7th House aspects.

Venus is in the Lagna as the 5th Lord and so Affleck has a rich talent within him which has come to the fore with the passage of time. The 5th House is the Citta and also the internal universe, the talent pool and the conscious mind itself. Venus is the Naisargika Kāraka/Natural Significator for entertainment and in the Mercurial sign of Gemini/ Mithuna in the Lagna it finds width of expression.

Affleck is a bit of a polymath, writing, directing and acting with aplomb in a wide range of films.

The direction and intellectual inputs come from the retrograde Jupiter in the 7th House in Sagittarius/ Dhanuṣa/ Dhanusha. He has worked very hard to cultivate himself as the blessings of Jupiter have come through traversing tortuous paths.

A retrograde planet strives much harder to accomplish and has a tremendous desire to do so. With the preceptors of opposing camps, Affleck has the best of both worlds, speculative, abstract and metaphysical contemplation and also the mundane, pragmatic, pleasing to the eye intelligence.

Father-

Affleck’s father could only reconnect with his adult sons as his life ‘hit the skids’ owing to issues relating to alcohol abuse.

The Ārūḍha/ Arudha Chakra reveals the absence of the father as the Sun is not only in the 12th Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna in Leo/ Simha Rāśi but also participates in a severe Curse of Mercury.

Saturn/ Śani/ Shani is in the 9th House of the father from the Naisargika Kāraka/Natural Significator Sun and shows alcohol related problems as Śani rules alcohol.

In fact, as Saturn is the 9th Lord from the Lagna as well and placed in a friendly sign, Affleck Sr. Later became an addiction counsellor.

Inner World-

Ben Affleck’s internal journey could not have been easy and this was reflected in some measure in his acceptance speech for Argo at the Academy Awards where he said that he was not holding any grudges for slights in the past and towards the naysayers.

 Sun Ātmakāraka/ Atmakaraka-

This acute awareness is brought about by several factors,  not least of which is that Sūrya/ Surya is the Ātmakāraka/  Atmakaraka planet. The Ātmakāraka is the soul significator for the horoscope and Parāśara/ Parashara has termed it the king of the horoscope- this is the planet farthest advanced by degrees in any chart irrespective of the sign. The Sun stands for power, authority, royalty, ego and domination. When the Sun becomes the Ātmakāraka the ego of the person is attacked and this is the means for the soul to shed the dross of past Karma. A malefic as the Ātmakāraka also shows a considerable soul journey thus far.

Curse and location from the Ārūḍha/ Arudha Lagna-

The fact that the Sun is in the 12th from the Ārūḍha Lagna ensures that the father does not properly witness and participate or contribute to the emergence into the world.

Also, Sun, Mercury and Ketu are joined aspected by Rāhu and Saturn. The Ātmakāraka and the Lagneśa in a cursed Yoga in the 12th Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna show self-negation as a dominant Kārmic theme in Affleck’s life.

It is a fact that he has admitted to an alcohol abuse problem and has availed of secluded rehabilitation opportunities for treatment.

From the Rāśi Chakra it appears important that Affleck watch his internal life as a human being carefully as he can go off the rails himself, and that too in full public view.

It is the affliction to the Lagneśa Budha which made Affleck and his friend Matt Damon work as cinema ushers and construction workers early in their lives. Mercury rules childhood and adolescence.
Navāmśa/ Navamsha Chakra-

The Navāmśa Chakra  is extracted below-

 
The first relationship of note was with Gwyneth Paltrow and this is indicated by Saturn in Leo in the Navāmśa Chakra. Saturn gave a relationship with a very tall, lean actress.

The next relationship was with Jennifer Lopez indicated by Sun in Pisces in the 2nd House. This was extremely high profile (Sun) and its media visibility (dual signs, aspected by the Bādhaka/ Badhaka Budha to Pisces with Rāśi Dṛṣti/ Rashi Drishti/ sign aspect) made Affleck end it.

Affleck says he ‘respects her and likes her’ which are both indicative of Sun in the relevant house of the relationship.

The 3rd relationship with Jennifer Garner translated into marriage and really hit home as it is indicated by Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi in the 9th House from the Lagna and the lord Venus is placed in the Lagna in the Navāmśa Chakra. She has brought him luck as the sign transposes to the 9th House using the Amśa Tula Rāśi technique.

We find that Affleck has deeply ingrained acting abilities with Venus in the Lagna and logical precision with Mars in the 5th Bhāva from the Lagna.

Problems-

Problems may arise due to ill-advised investments and expenses or due to a business venture or communications as Mercury and Sun are in the 12th from the Ārūḍha Lagna. This could involve a major mistake due to Ketu being joined which is the significator for mistakes.

Career-

The initial and basic birth time rectification was done to bring the Lagna/ Ascendant of the Daśāmśa Chakra/ D-10 to Libra which is the obvious choice considering the line of work.

The Daśāmśa/ Dashamsha Chakra which is the specific Varga Chakra/divisional chart relating to work and profession is given below-

 
Venus is in Libra Lagna forming the Mālavya/ Mahāpuruṣa/ Malavya Mahapurusha Yoga. Mars is also there and threatens a fiery incident which may threaten to jeopardise the career at some point in time.

Dynamics of life through Daśās/ Dashas-

Ben Affleck’s status as a leading man/ hero started in the Śani Mahādaśā/ Shani/ Saturn Mahadasha in the Viṃśottarī Daśā/ Vimshottari Dasha scheme-

Viṃśottarī Daśā:

Sat Mahādaśā: 2000-05-10 (8:31:51 am) - 2019-05-11 (5:18:02 am)

Aṅtaradaśās in this Mahādaśā:

Sat: 2000-05-10 (8:31:51 am) - 2003-05-14 (5:32:31 am)

  Merc: 2003-05-14 (5:32:31 am) - 2006-01-22 (5:45:44 am)

  Ket: 2006-01-22 (5:45:44 am) - 2007-03-02 (1:22:42 am)

  Rah: 2013-12-23 (8:19:20 pm) - 2016-10-31 (5:10:22 am)

  Jup: 2016-10-31 (5:10:22 am) - 2019-05-11 (5:18:02 am)

Saturn is the 9th Lord in the Rāśi Chakra and is the Yogakāraka/ Yogakaraka in the Daśāmśa Chakra. it forms a Viparīta Rāja Yoga with the malefic Yogakāraka badly placed in Dusthāna from the Lagna. The dispositor Mercury is in the 11th House of resources. He would not be well-advised in taking on a protégé or get into any sort of a mentorship role with Kumbha Doṣa/ Dosha coming in.

With the Mercury Daśā coming in 2019, he will enter the most conspicuous phase in his life, both for better and for worse. The curse combination is triggered as that in the 12th Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna. At the same time Mercury is the Lagneśa and major expenses come into play only when there is major income.

Budha is also the 11th lord of gains from the Ārūḍha Lagna in the Rāśi Chakra and the planet in the 11th House in the Daśāmśa Chakra. Both extremes are likely to manifest. In this phase he will be compelled to find his religion once again.
