  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81.

BPL commentary:

For Arudra natives, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

Exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructional forces of Orion.

"Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani in the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra indicates material scarcity conditions in the childhood home, but this placement also grants stability and a regulated environment in the foundational years of life

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

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

BPL commentary:

For natives of Purvaphalguni * Yoni, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Zosma

"... an oval face , whose features are well proportioned
  • and a quiet, well modulated voice, soft and cultured.
She is modest and unassuming
  • but has a strong and fine character beneath her quiet demeanor.

Very hospitable and sociable, she likes to meet people

  • and is interested in what they have to say and in their troubles.

She likes to sew or embroider

  • and is often occupied with such tasks.

She also is keenly interested in occult subjects

  • And likes to listen to discussions on these matters and to read about them.

She is scrupulous in her obligations

  • and a favor done to her will always be repaid promptly with something else added."

Her Somana-yuti-Shani-Mula-5 exemplifies the emotional response of emotional resistance patterns (Chandra-Shani) that fluctuate but do not change.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka yogakaraka

Dharmesha Mangala-Simha-1 is a vigorous champion of her Faith. June Carter Cash was theatrically and politically identified with her religious doctrine and her glory was much amplified by the drishti of Rahu-Meza coming from dharmasthana-9.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Zukra occupies 5th-from-Chandra entertainment, celebrity, drama

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

From Chandra-Dhanuzya lagna, sober serious structured hierarchical Shani rules

  1. the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of 2nd-from-Chandra
  2. the emotionally motivated information-delivering, evangelical, publishing, announcing, script-reading, reporting, conversational, process-managing communications of 3rd-from-Chandra

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