Robert Redford, A Living legend

CINEMA requires the mastery of visually depicting an ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances or situation. Screenwriter William Goldman once observed that Redford’s charm, intelligence, talent and looks are a rare combination in an actor. It is indeed true. There are very few film personalities like him whose off-screen persona is also discussed in as much as their on-screen charisma, particularly in the US and Europe every day. Robert himself once admitted that Hollywood being a formula industry, always deals with business and profit constantly looking for a newer formula for

guaranteed success. Hence It becomes harder and harder for artists to sustain, because of the overpowering force or the more external factors — like celebrity, fashion, and the media’s obsessions etc . Given the above complexities, the RedFord’s continued success for 40 years in the film world assumes enormous significance.

The existence of film personalities is just for the time they can be sustained as viables for media business and to vanish, no more to be heard of. Very few prove to be exceptions to the above phenomenon and it is no exaggeration to say Robert Redford is definitely one among the extra ordinaries to enter into the Rasi Chart significant pages of history. What made him a distinguished man? Let us analyse astrologically.

Features of Pisces Ascandant:

Ascandant falls in Pisces 6 degrees with its lord placed in the 9th, a friendly house aspecting powerfully its own house. Generally people with Pisces rising resist any kind of labeling—their characters are changeable, and they don’t want to be pinned down or pegged in any way. Theirs is a restless searching nature that cannot be happy with any one way of living or being. Robert truly fits into the above

10th house of profession is occupied by Rahu, with its dispositor in the 9th house of fame. There is constellational exchange between Rahu and Ketu. The intellectual sign of Gemini is occupied by Ketu, whose dispositor is involved in Vipreetha Raja Yoga. The entire Rahu dasa proved to be a boon for Mr. Redford followed by Jupiter’s. He was thus continuously under the planetary influences of the 9th house of fame for 34 years. Rahu true to his nature made the native a master of non-traditional motion pictures. For instance, at least in 6 of his films, he has portrayed a character committing adultery and themes of many of his films related to scandals of yester years.

Significant Astrological Features:

Sine qua non of a horoscope lies in the strong and beneficial placement of the lagna lord and in RedFord’s chart, lagna lord Jupiter being in the 9thhouse of fame is as significant as that of the lords of 6 and 8 in the 6th house causing Vipreetha Rajayoga. The multi-talented actor, director, philanthropist, producer, and Sundance-founder, emerging as one of the most important personalities in the modern cinema, can be attributed to the Raja Yogas arising out of

  1. Lagna lord’s placement in the 9th aspecting powerfully the lagna, while its dispositor occupying the 5th, though under debilitation

  2. An unblemished Rahu otherwise called Kothanda Rahu in the 10th house, while Jupiter’s placement in the (Kendra) 4th from Moon causing Gajakesari Yoga.

  3. Vipreetha Raja yoga arising out of the placement of 6, 8 and 12 lords occupying one of these houses. However, Moon being the 5th lord being placed among the planets involved therein dilutes the Raja Yoga to some extent.

  4. Mercury’s occupation in an upachaya house turning him positive for the horoscope not withstanding his kendradhipathya dosha. Planetary dispositions leading to Prominence par excellence:

  • The combination of Venus and Mercury is ideal for a film personality and their Kendra position from Jupiter made a versatile artist both on the screen and behind the camera. The disposition of the 9th lord in the 5th and the lagna lord in the 9th is another classic astrological feature promising prominence.
  • Moon is the planet for imagination, a esthetic judgments, understanding the soil psychology. changing trends, appealing bodily features etc and its association with Venus and Mercury besides it occupying Venussian Star ensured him a place in the hearts of film lovers.
  • 10th house of profession is occupied by Rahu with its dispositor in the 9th house of fame. There is constellational exchange between Rahu and Ketu. The intellectual sign of Gemini is occupied by Ketu, whose dispositor is involved in Vipareetha Raja Yoga. The entire Rahu dasa proved to be a boon for the native followed by Jupiter’s. He was thus continuously under the planetary influences of the 9th house of fame for 34 years.
  • Vipreeta Raja Yoga is a sort of Negative Yoga, since it is generated by functional malefic for an ascendant and in nutshell it deals with controlling the obstacles in life by keeping the resistance/ adversaries to progress of life under check. In actual practice, it often leads to unexpected ups and downs causing more setbacks to the natives.
  • The combination of Mercury and Venus is one of the pre-requisites for any professional excellence in the field of media and entertainment and these two functional malefic occupying an adverse 6th house have elevated the native as Entertainment Weekly’s 30th Greatest Movie Star of all time. The negativity arising out of functional status is diluted substantially, if not fully, due to their occupation in another upachaya house. It is pertinent to mention here that the entire sub-periods of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Rahu Dasa, there was pronounced progress towards professional upliftment for native.
  • In Navamsa also, the planets are fairly well placed with the dominance of Moon-Mercury over the 10th house of profession, while Sun is in exaltation.
  • For artists, the houses of Mercury and Venus are very sensitive and contributive irrespective of their ascendants. In Robert’s Sarvashtavarga, Gemini acquires 42 bindus followed by Tauras 34. House of profession Sagittarius and Libra also secure 30 each significantly.
  • In Dasamsa Chart, again Mercury occupying a martian sign accompanied by Moon influences the 10th house of profession while Venus and Sun are strongly placed.

Lunar Blessings

The position of Moon, a significator for charisma and youthful appearance, is also placed along with Mercury and Venus in the Royal sign of Leo. Moon in astrology rules the psychic of a person and understanding of the unfailing realities of life. The lunar blessings of his blond hair, blue eyes and clean-cut all-American appearance ensured Robert Redford a perfect star in the grand Hollywood tradition of a male romantic lead. Also, Redford’s emotional entanglements were usually subsidiary to the main plot of his films and hence he rarely played opposite to the actresses of equal caliber. With the uncanny sense of understanding the mass mood in media business invested in him by Moon, he never suffered the stroke of generation gap and maintained the currency or relevance of his media life through periodical switching over to various sub fields within the ambit of his business viz., as an actor, producer, director, creator of a school, etc. Moon, as the Atmakaraka planet, confirms lunar support all along forthe native.

Family Life:

The combination of Moon, Mercury and Venus often gives disturbed or curtailed matrimony. Further the ‘7th lord occupies the 6th house amidst the malefic influences of 4 planets having contradictory nature and function. Robert married Lola Red Ford Van Wagenen on 12 September 1958, when Mars-Venus period was operating and divorced her in 1985 during the period of Jupiter-Mercury. His quasi marital life with few others however continues to exist till date thanks to the 7th lord’s position in the 6th house. One of the 4 children born out of the wedlock died due to sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in Mars-Moon period.

Early Life:

Neither the 4th lord nor the occupant of the 4th house is comfortable in the chart. Naturally, Redford hails from a family which is fairly poor with his father being a milkman turned accountant in an oil company. Thanks to the operation of Sun dasa during his boyhood, he did not face any problem and was an average kid, spending much of his time playing baseball at Van Nuys High School in Los Angeles. The year 1955 assumes significance when he lost his mother in the period Mars-Jupiter. (Jupiter – Ketu and Saturn were transiting in the 4th and the 8th houses of the Asc respectively). Jupiter occupying Mercurial constellation and Mars, Saturnine resulted in the tragic death of his mother and he lost baseball scholarship to the University of Colorado in 1955 due to a brief drinking problem during the same period. The actor was reportedly depressed at the time due to his mother’s tragic death. His life during entire Mars dasa, a formative period for the native, was one of an ordinary millions, spending time studying and painting at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and theatrical set design at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City after living in Europe for a brief period. Only in Rahu dasa, his acting career began in 1960 with numerous television roles on shows like “Maverick” and “Perry Mason” Interestingly he received a “Fish Rod” in lieu of his first payment of $75 for acting in a TV drama. RAHU DASA & CAREER UPLIFTMENT

The most important incident which led Robert to the path of prosperous career was his first motion picture, War Hunt (1962) which was a second-rate and low-budget venture and it was not a great success for either its producer, or Redford. But during the filming, he struck up a long working relationship with the then actor Sydney Pollack – who later directed several of Redford’s films. It happened in the period Rahu-Rahu, while the transit Jupiter and Saturn were in favourable 7th and 6th from his natal Moon. The striking actor continued to work steadily in television, until earning lead roles in Arthur Penn’s “The Chase” and Sydney Pollack’s “This Property is Condemned” in 1965 (Rahu-Jupiter period), followed by the lead in “Barefoot in the Park” in 1967(Rahu-Saturn). Though these were appreciated for impressive performances by Redford, later found to be mere precursor to his superstardom.

In the ascendant lord’s dasa, Robert added one more feather to his cap through his directorial debut of “Ordinary People” which won 4 Oscar Awards in 1980 that include interalia for best picture and best director. It was commercially a huge hit. Redford is one of the very few actors to win an Academy Award for ‘Best Director’.

Rahu-Mercury period & windfall for Redford

In 1969, Rahu-Mercury, period was in operation and Redford starring alongside the legendary Paul Newman in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” received applause for his performance par excellence. (Redford’s dream project Sundance Institute was named after his character in the film “).

In 1969, Robert Redford bought Timphaven and surrounding lands from the Stewart family, paving way for the birth of Sundance. At the top of his career in 1980, Robert Redford felt, it was time to give something back to the film business and so he founded the Sundance Institute, a multi-disciplinary arts organization dedicated to the development of artists of independent vision and to the exhibition of their new work. The same year also saw Red Ford as Producer with his debut film “Downhill racer” under Wild wood Banner.

 

Periods of Rahu-Venus & Rahu-Moon leading to his career achievements & Awards

Rahu-Venus period ensured Redford scaling newer heights of artistic achievements Hollywood has ever witnessed in as much as he was placed as the 5th  ranker in the Annual Exhibitors Box Office Poll in 1973 and thereafter No.1 ranker continuously for three years in a row which is a sort of record, subsequently in the period Rahu-Moon.

Thesame period in 1977 saw Robert playing a variety of roles that included interalia his famous portrayal of Bob Woodward of Washington Post in the political drama “All the president’s Men” written by William Goldman. (The film dealt with in depth the famous Watergate scandal affecting the entire course of the US General Elections). One interesting feature is that Rahu true to his nature made the native a master of non-traditional motion pictures. For instance, at least in 6 of his films, he has portrayed a character committing adultery and themes of many of his films related to scandals of yester years.

Jupiter Dasa made him a seasoned artist & the Head of an institution:

JupiterJupiter commenced his dasa in 1978, when Robert added one more weather to his cap through his directorial debut of “Ordinary People” which won 4 Oscar Awards in 1980 that include interalia for best picture and best director. Interestingly, it is a highly emotional and perceptive study of family tensions, based upon the guilt that the son feels over his brother’s drowning. It was commercially a huge hit. Redford is one of the very few actors to win an Academy Award for ‘Best Director’. (He carries the distinction of making a shortest acceptance speech in the OSCAR Academy Award Ceremony when he spoke “Thank you very much”.) In 1987, he made yet another attempt as director in a film and he was again successful in his endeavour. He was also conferred with a honorary Doctorate for his professional achievements by University of Colorado followed by three other institutions in 1995 and 2005, in due recognition of his lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts. In 1990 when Mars commenced his sub period in Jupiter dasa, offscreen Redford staged a comeback in Havana as actor in a romantic drama but it was found to be an error calculi for him, in spite of good personal reviews. It was one of his few outright failures with longtime collaborator Sydney Pollack. Mars being in debilitation coupled with the adverse transit planets led to the debacle. In Jupiter-Rahu period (1992), he made a conscious decision to put his career back in high gear and enjoyed great success on every front. `Sneakers’ proved that he had lost none of his star power. ‘A River Runs Through’ revealed his strengths as a director again; `Incident at Oglala’ which he executive-produced and narrated, reaffirmed his social commitment.

Robert Redford, A Living Legend

In Saturn-Mercury period (1997), he announced the formation of Sundance Cinemas, a chain of movie theaters that will only show independent films. Saturn-Venus period (2000-04) confirmed his continued popularity among the masses through the success stories of “An Unfinished Life” (2005), “Sacred Planet” (2005), “The Clearing” (2004), “Spy Game” (2001). In fact in 2002, when Saturn-Venus period was running, he received an honour from Oscar for Life achievement award. Now he is running Saturn-Mars period till Oct 2007.

Redford, a perfect Jupiterian

The entire life analysis confirms that Jupiter made him a strong advocate of independent filmmaking. Redford founded the Sundance Institute in 1980 as an organization “dedicated to the support and development of emerging screenwriters and directors of vision and to the national and international exhibition of new American independent cinema”.  Perhaps more than any other star. Mr. Redford is ambivalent about the interlocking relationship between his career and social commitments.

Jupiter’s placement in the 9th, (a Martian sign) and the position of the unblemished Rahu in the 10th have made him a dynamic legend in his field and invested him with nobility, dignity and a sense of righteousness. He often did his own stunts in action sequences, but then paid the stunt guild accordingly, so as not to deprive anyone of their legitimate earning. Reason is simple! He is a perfect Jupiterian!

Not so favourable Mars

Not with standing its functional status as benefic by virtue of his ownership as the 2nd and the 9th lord, Mars, being debilitated in his horoscope with no cancellation has never been favourable to the native either in his dasa or in any of his sub-periods in as much as he lost his son as infant during Mars-Mars period in 1959, he lost his father in Jupiter-Mars period (1991), faced professional reverses in Rahu-Mars and Jupiter-Mars period etc. Under the circumstances, now he is running Saturn-Mars period till Oct 2007, while transit Saturn continues his stay in Leo i.e., his Janma Rasi much to his discomfiture. Saturn’s natal placement in the 12th and its contribution to the Vipreetha raja yoga are not considered to be favourable for him, as per the conventional astrological texts. Given the above adverse influences, the years 2007 and 2008 would be a testing period for him personally and professionally. However, the strongly placed natal Jupiter and Rahu have never let this grand visionery down and it partly relieves our trepidation and anxiety arising out of 6/8 position of Saturn-Mars in his natal chart.
