Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Arudra-Orion-Orion * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra-Orion births of masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

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

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from Orion. Their purpose is to communicate the passionate animal vitality via stormy, turbulent, swaying, exciting gesture and signal.

Passionately Communicative

Rahu-ruled Arudra-Orion fellows are often found in muscular, passionate, body-intensive roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage. Stage performers of high excellence, Arudra-Orion gentlemen are often admired for their pulsing sensuality and animal magnetism.

Thiruvaathira chaps may be gifted in all varieties of manual labor, handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of beckoning, seductive gesture (Budha).

Themes of stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra-Orion's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra-Orion.

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

"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."

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru-2 voice and song occupies the career-defining emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra

Guru-2 also represents the public profile of the second marriage. There is a significant difference between the conflicted private emotional profile for the second marriage as indicated by 2nd-from-Chandra = bhava-6 versus the expansive and gloriously voiced public profile bhava-2 Guru-Karkata * uttama

Guru rules bhava-7 matching the Dhanuzya-Chandra of June Carter Cash

romantic, highly publicized second marriage * Guru-uttama-2

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Sweets-seeking Shukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also)

public (10) struggle with intoxicants = Zukra-yuti-Rahu occupies the self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Makara-Draco * old hierarchies, old rules
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious transformations. One must slowly, inexorably change the old order. One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner. In-laws contribute little. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as surgeon, tantriki, concealer, mask-maker, emergency regulator.

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-10 desires an important regulating role in materially privileged, socially visible ranks. Exciting, potentially fraudulent, opportunistic character of the leaders, bosses and government officials. Thrives in culturally-mixed legislative, executive settings. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a boss, an authority-figure, a decision-maker, a legislator, a tyrant. Rahu-10 trespasses the cultural boundaries of governance authority, social dignity. Thrilling hunger for high-recognition, empowered reputation, respect. Ambition of the father's family
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * amplified attractions, magnified beauty. exotic art-music, tricky partners, opportunistic feminine-figures, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of luxuriously lovely pleasures, hypnotic arrangements, gracious balance of cross-cultural mixing

June Carter Cash

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect 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.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Zukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, bargaining ability, and glamour in romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political and creative success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of theatrical celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

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

  • 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."

Sense of Belonging = Chandra

born into a faith community of rural American "Old Time Believers" the famous ballad singer Ms. Carter-Cash expressed an attitude of inseparable, organic, single-pulse perception of Presbyterian sacred doctrine, transplanted Scotch-Irish folk folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, deep-rooted agricultural lifestyle, and the seasonal rhythms of the Appalachian Mountains. Her Somana-yuti-Shani-Mula-5 exemplifies the emotional response of emotional resistance patterns (Chandra-Shani) that fluctuate but do not change.

Her family of singers performed a repertory of the hymns and devotional music expressing the traditional (Vrizabha) rural folk Christian values. The Carter Family were well known (10).

Budha ruling 2-11 is typically a moneymaker for the Simha nativity. Although there were few windfalls and graha in any artha-sthana indicate that one will need to work for the gain, her economic income was substantial due to ruler of 2-11 * Budha-yuti-Guru located in karmasthana-10.
