I have written about relation of Budh/Mercury connection with Mars (Mangal) or signs of Mangal. I have taken her birth-time as 10AM Tehran just for illustration purposes. It shows Budh/Mercury in Aries (Mesh). Mercury in Aries is Gary Kasparov, Korpov and so on. Mercury Sun in Scorpio is Vishwanathan Anand. So Mercury and Mars are very much related to the math and chess stuff. Maryam has Mercury in Aries too. She has Sun Mercury in Aries. Ketu is in the very first degree of Aries (Rashi-Gandant) which shows something with brain and head or nervous system with the maternal grandfather (intense events).
aspect is very close on Sun & Mercury. Chandra-Rahu could show lack pf patience but Shani/Saturn drushti on Budh/Mercury Surya and MORE so KETU in the very first degree of Aries does show a very high brain activity and a busy mind. The date of 3 ruled by Guru shows broad approach thought leadership and academics & individual achievers. The total addition of 14 again is BUDH/MERCURY which is conductive for numbers anyways. Uranus bang opposite Mercury only increases the speed of the mind and also keeps it very busy – unconventional, unorthodox and challenging the status-quo.
She had a breast cancer - -so may be Makar/Capricorn lagna or rather even Mithun/Gemini ascendant/lagna with Surya Ketu Budh/Mercury in the 4th house. Don't know for sure. She developed the breast cancer in 2013 when transit Shani/Saturn/ was traveling on her Chandra-Rahu-Uranus and was opposite/drushti on her Surya-Budh/Mercury-Ketu and also her natal . Will try to find her birth-time. He forehead is quite decent size.
