I wanted to explore the sidereal charts of spiritual leaders. I mostly wanted to explore an offhand conjecture that there would not be much Scorpio there, by which I mean that I did not expect to see many ascendants, Suns, Moons, or atmakarakas (AK) in Scorpio for that rarefied group.
Who counts though as a spiritual leader? I decided to, without prejudice, take all entries on this Astro-databank page with B or higher Rodden ranking. There were 85 such entries.
Being relatively stringent with the ranking meant that Rama, Krishna, Jesus, or the Buddha could not be included. Those who were left included people as disparate as founders of religions to mere founders of spiritual magazines.
Of the 85 entries, here are the results for placements.
which yielded the following for the Chi Square analysis for the AK, the only placement type that yielded significant results (Bonferroni correction included).
Qualitatively, it is interesting that the hotpots are Aries, Gemini, Leo, and Libra, i.e. the masculine signs that are in the first half of the zodiac, and yes, Scorpio is weak across the board of indicators as seen in the yellow-orange chart above.
