  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86

BPL commentary:

For Purva-azadha natives, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, artistic beauty, treasuries, and music, may be especially influential.

Guidance from the instructors in the civilizations of Sinnuntu.

"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .

One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.

  • Stupid, yet ostentatious and vulgar ,

  • with very few educational advantages.

Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.

  • While he must, because of educational handicaps,

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

  • but ineffectual if put in authority ."

Kanya cluster in bhava-10 highest visibility and respect: Victim narrative and popular appeal

Many of Mr. Bachchan's most celebrated dramatic roles have prominently featured the victim narrative (Kanya). In youthful portrayals, he specialized in the character of the Angry Young Man. More mature roles tended to dramatize betrayal, false accusation, humiliation, and unmet expectations (Kanya represents "soap opera" narrative of injustic, that is continuously popular among the service classes Kanya ).

According to the eminent Jyotisha Shri B.V. Raman, every land and people is governed by a particular rashi, and the rashi of Mother India is Kanya. Even or perhaps even because Mr. Bachchan's finances failed or he experienced injuries or disgrace, his popular appeal in Kanya-land has steadily increased.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani in Bhava-6 * must serve the problematic * advantageous placement for outlasting one's enemies; cautious, conventional crimes; chronic illness and injury
  • Shani-Vrizabha * old values, pressured storage, old treasuries, must preserve with scarce resources

Shani rules Arudha lagna bhava-3 cinema, communications

Shani located in 8th-from-Chandra * permanent Shani-ashtamsha

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu in bhava-9 * privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview; seeks philosophy
  • Rahu-Singha * nichha * mask of radiant dramatic celebrity

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu-3 publications ruler Shani-6 * ambivalent, occasionally hostile relationship to the press

There can be certain mental-health challenges with Ketu-3 albeit these may be well compensated by realism-increasing drishti. Brain health may eventually be a concern in old age, particularly when bhava-3 is ruled by drying, brittle, inflexible Shani.
