Quiz Answer: Mostly technical with a creative streak.
This quiz was pretty straight forward as compared to previous quizzes. This is the Vedic astrology chart of a man who is very technically oriented. He specializes in computer repair as a business and is known for being able to fix just about anything. He also offers a variety of other computer services like web design which demonstrates his creative streak, along with his creative problem-solving skills.
The articles of the previous week emphasized that malefic planets give a technical orientation especially when influencing the houses of education, the 2nd, 4th and 5th houses and the personality indicators, the ascendant, the Sun and Moon. Mercury must also be considered, being the significator of intelligence and education.
The ascendant is aspected by the malefic planets, Rahu/Ketu, and Saturn. Mercury also receives these aspects and is strong by virtue of its location on an angle in its own sign giving a bhadra mahapurusha yoga. The malefic planets Mars and Saturn aspect the Sun, and Moon respectively. Mars is very strong being in its own sign of Aries (it's moolatrikona sign) and vargottama, in the 5th house. Mars is a mechanical, "fix-it" planet. Saturn aspects the 4th house and the Sun (a mild malefic) aspects the 4th lord Jupiter. These are the primary malefic aspects that assure a technically oriented nature.
Jupiter, as the 1st and 4th lord, aspected by the Sun, the 9th lord, is a raja yoga which gives a positive, creative solution-oriented nature. Venus with the Moon in the 9th house indicates a creative streak but is less dominant then the strong malefic/technical influences. This also indicates a friendly, warm personality.
