Feminine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary:

For Pushya nativities, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

Elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Asellus

All four pada of Tisya occur within Chandra-ruled Karkata rashi. Births into pada 1-2-3-4 uniformly express the the tension between emotionally protective soothing Somana versus lawfully ordering Shani.

Both deeply caring and socially regulatory, Pushyami ladies are often found at the director level of hierarchical organizations that are dedicated to family, parent, and citizen welfare.

Deeply patriotic and protectionist by nature, they have a gift for combining a secure family life with larger social responsibilities. Pushya feminine figures are influential in the material world, respected for their orderly yet sensitive conduct, and particularly dedicated to the safety of women and children.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, dignity of the family, respect for cultural customs, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushyami.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 93

She is well-read, cultured and active in all community and social affairs.

In her home she entertains and is fond of indoor games, bridge parties and social gatherings

  • at which she is a charming and capable hostess.

  • She will have her own money

  • or her husband will be generous in his allowances to her

and she will spend much of it on church and club activities

  • and with charitable organizations.

If she cares to adopt some public career,

  • she will become very well known ."
