  • 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, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, 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 ."

Prominent features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka

  • Surya-Vrizchika * Maricha * particle of light

Mr. King's nativity features the remarkable combination of the rulers of 6-8-12 (Zukra, Chandra, Kuja) located together within Dhanuzya kalpasthana-1

Much shock-and-upheaval (8) in life * randhresha-8 Mula-Chandra in radical lagna

Karakamsha bhava-8 indicates that for which he is ultimately best known, which is his capacity to discover previously hidden information and to iconically represent the process of self-reinvention (economically, maritally, and personally)

Randhresha-8 Chandra in Mula in radical lagna * secrets, confidential information, hidden relationships, alimony, personal volatility, cyclical identity changes

It is a special situation which can occur for Dhanuzya nativities when randresha Chandra-Dhanuzya occupies bhava-1. The pattern of reiterative rhythm of upheaval is emotionally intensifies and one may feel (Chandra) intensely propelled by revolutionary-evolutionary forces to seek security via sudden transformation of the personality.

The ruler of 8 in 1, Chandra-in-8, or ruler of the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra located in 1, can all produce what in modern parlance is called the Crisis Junkie. This sort of need for speed transformational self-reinvention pattern is Chandra-influenced hormonal at its basis, but when Chandra intermingles with other graha there are social triggers too.

In Mr. King's nativity, Somana-yuti-Zukra engages the marriage behavior within this driving recycle pattern, resulting in the infamous multiple wedding-make and wedding-break actions. Zukra rules 11 making the marketplace earning cycle an ever-changing and Rahu-opportunized experience.

Somana-yuti-Kuja engages the matters of Kuja's bhava-5 celebrity-entertainments along with the matters of Kuja's bhava-12 bedroom environments, especially involving Budha-12 ruler of 7-vows and contracts, resulting in a vivid and dynamic ongoing transformation within bedroom environments.
