When I mentioned Swami Vivekanand in DHANU rashi bhavishya post for 2011, I had no clue of his actual moon sign etc but just by his photographs, description of his health, idealism and overall "charitra" I thought that he would be "dominated" by Dhanu rashi like Samarth Ramdas Swami. Today is his Jayanti 12th Jan. So he is indeed, Sagittarius Sun Sign ie. Dhanu Ravi/Surya. (Western Sun Sign dates are WRONG: http://astromnc.blogspot.com/2009/07/your-correct-real-sun-sign.html).
Also, 12 (& 30) born folks are supposed to be principals/professors, philosophical writers etc. Or other way round great souls who want to be in this stream (scholars) take birth on these dates.
Swami Vivekanand’s Sun is in the most expressive section on Dhanu rashi (Vargottam). This is also the section where Rafael Nadal and Shane Warne have their Mangal (Sports). Swami-Ji might be born late in the night as it shows Sinvha/Simha rashi in 1st degree after 9 p.m. (12 Jan 1863). I would be surprised if he was born in Kirk rashi with Rahu and Mangal in there! After 9 p.m. his nakshatra would be Magha which is known to be disciplined but also princely. Will need to check on that. (Kirk moon sign would mean his mom would have suffered some issues with lungs hereditary – Mangal Rahu and Chandra in Kirk rashi would mean hereditary issues with lungs).
Also, a few days back I had posted an article (on b-date of 3, 12, 21, 30: http://astromnc.blogspot.com/2010/04/born-on-3-ie-3-12-21-30-of-any-month.html). There, I had commented by J Krishnamurthy should have been 12 / 30 born due to his entire philosophical writings.
Anyways this article was just to highlight this great soul’s connection with Sagittarius/Dhanu Sun/Surya (12th Jan).
I guess his following bold quote has to be attributed to Sagittarius Sun Sign!
Quote on Physical Strength by Swami Vivekananda:
“Be strong, my young friends, that is my advice to you. You will be nearer to heaven through football than through the study of Gita. These are bold words; but I have to say them, for I love you. I know where the shoe pinches. I have gained a little experience. You will understand the Gita with your biceps, your muscles, a little stronger.”
