"Drug addiction is a complex brain disease. It is characterized by compulsive, at times uncontrollable, drug craving, seeking, and use that persist even in the face of extremely negative consequences."
Do you know what is common among Jim Morrison, Marilyn Monroe, Guru Dutt, Natalie Cole and Michael Jackson ? They all died of drug overdose/ drug addiction. Drug addiction is curse to a civilized society. Let us see today what combinations in horoscope can help us predict addiction to drugs.
There are many different types of combinations in horoscope for drug addiction but in this post I will stick to the combinations related to planet Venus.
Venus rules Sex, Drugs and Alcohol. If Venus is disturbed, He can over-do the natural pleasures which can result in sex addictions, drug addictions, and alcoholism.
In any house, Venus with Rahu/Ketu gives some attraction to obsessive/compulsive sensual behavior. Addictive tendencies are enhanced but not assured. Venus can cause addictions in any house.
Let's look at it in Natalie Cole's Horoscope who was a very famous singer of her time. She had seen a downfall in her career due to her addictions to drugs. She was so out of control that her young son Robert nearly drowned in the family swimming pool while she was on a drug binge. She was eventually sent to Rehab in 1983.
As mentioned above about Venus being the ruler of drugs and Rahu or Ketu's influence over it as addicting. Let us look at the position of Venus in this Horoscope. Venus, a functional malefic is in 6th house along with Sun, the Lagnesh and Jupiter who is also the lord of 8th. Saturn the lord of 7th and 6th house is in Lagna. Parivartana (exchange) between lagnesh and house of 6th lord (House of diseases) and Venus in 6th house with Ketu's drishti on it makes the person loose control over self. And also makes the person physically weak. Due to the weak physical composition indicated by horoscope, Natalie still frequently struggles with diseases like hepatisis C and Kidney problems.
That's all for this post. Rest in my next posts.
