Chakrapani Ullal: Planets are nothing but energy. When a person is born, at the time he is born, how the planets are distributed in the sky gives you certain types of energy. So that is how some people become certain types of people.

I don’t know anything about paintings because I am not an artist. I don’t know how to draw a picture. But I can see. And I see the charts.

You know if look at um Leonardo’s chart, it is totally different. He is born in Sagittarius rising. He’s energetic, he is strong, he is fire. He is born in a fire sign. And fire is active in spirit.

You go from whatever opportunity you get. That is what the Sagittarius rising with Rahu in the rising sign does. Rahu is the planet which makes people take whatever direction they want, and it does not take just one direction. So he has got strong Rahu. And also, he has strong courage. Mars, Jupiter, Moon, in the Third House, house of courage—very strong, courage, confident. That means he felt “nobody can, nobody can stop me.”

He has got Saturn situated in the Tenth House. And Saturn in the Tenth House makes people go to through ups and downs. He was always, always was fearful of the failure. He had that fear, even though he was fire, he was firey, energetic, active, dynamic, adventurous by nature. Because he is born in afire sign and that too is in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the house of knowledge. So to that extent, he was very lucky. And it also means he had many friends. Mars, Jupiter, Moon, in the Third House indicates a lot of friends. People who like him.

Sagittarius is a ruler of Jupiter. Jupiter is like a teacher, a Guru. So, he always commands respect. So he’s born with that. And his Jupiter is in the Third House, making connection with people, friendships. And he has got Sun in the Fifth House. Sun is the planet of success. It is exalted in the Fifth House, Aries. A fire sign. So his rising sign is a fire sign, his sun is also in a fire sign. Sun indicates the soul.
