In his Cancer rising chart, the brilliance is seen through the 1st lord Moon being placed in Aries on the most effective point of the 10th house with an aspect from an exalted 10th lord Mars on the most effective point of the 7th house. With Mars aspecting his 1st house of self and fame and Fischer was anything if not direct and powerful as a person as well as a supremely famous one. Mars also aspected his 2nd house of reputation and 10th house of career, explaining why his fame is based on his technical abilities as a chess player. His 4th lord Venus was exalted in the 9th house of higher thought. Venus gives knowledge and Fischers knowledge of chess was unrivalled. The placement of his 2nd lord Sun in the 8th house of obstacles under an aspect from 6th lord Jupiter in the 12th house showed his conflict and the problems Fischer had with the US authorities. With his Mercury as 3rd lord of speech in the 8th house, there were numerous problems with Fischers pronouncements.
