Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity


  • QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96.

BPL commentary: For Chitra natives, the condition of Mangala considerably affects the outcome

"An expensive and luxurious person.

  • One who is fond of clothes and beautiful surroundings and revels in them.

  • She spends much money on jewels, perfumes, cosmetics

  • and her taste in these matters is expensive .

She >likes to change costumes several times a day

  • and always look like an animated fashion plate .

Variety is the spice of life to this woman

  • and she will be inconstant and fickle in love affairs,

  • having many during her life and marrying often.

Many actresses, musicians, artists and opera singers have Chitra rising.

Salient features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Surya rules 10th navamsha entertainment

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Chandra in Revati music. Her musical and dramatic performances appealed emotionally to a very broad cross-section of the public. Chandra-6 sensitivity to suffering rules 10- while Shukra-Surya occupy bhava-10 iconic, high visibility roles. Her musical style was admired by fans young and old, rich and poor, black and white, men and women.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Her mother, the multi-generationally popular singer Cissy Houston, Chandra-yuti-Guru-Revati-6 also appealed to a wide demographic swath of listeners since she sang in several styles ranging from religious devotional church music (Guru) to drug-and-exploitation influenced nightclub material (6). Whitney Houston wrote much of her own music (Guru rules 3-writing) and her performance career was economically gainful due to vriddhipathi Surya in 10 yuti Zukra karaka for music and beauty.

Chandra-6 often indicates mother-figures who can be jealous and emotionally exploitive. In the lifescript of the nativity, typically the mother-figures are scripted agents of criticism and guilt. These mother-figures may also have many complaints of their own sick as hormonal imbalances which produce sicknesses, self-medication, debt, servitude, and crime or conflict according to the rashi, the ruler, and incoming drishti. Chandra is exceptionally impressionable; incoming drishti is potent.

Chandra receives incoming Parashari drishti from both disciplining, orderly Shani-4 (suggesting an orderly childhood home) and also from sexualized, verbally critical Mangala-Kanya-12.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka

Kuja-Kanya-12 occupies the marital 7th-from-Chandra, indicating a physically active and critically-investigating life mate

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha-11 rules humanistic 9-12. Her music had a notable community focus and expressed most vibrantly in larger groups such as church choirs.

Budha represents the team, the entourage, the ensemble, the promoters, the handlers, the managers

Budha occupies the emotionally adversarial 6th-from-Chandra suggesting that the need to earn economic income, in part to support a legion of managers and handlers, was the greatest source of psycho-emotional stress (typically, the mandate to manifest marketplace earnings is a source of tension and exhaustion for the Chandra-6 nativity)

Shortly after the onset of Surya Mahadasha where Surya rules 11, her fleshdeath occurred. Commentators broadly agreed that she suffered from exhaustion. Shani in 11th-from-Chandra compounds the strain of having to earn marketplace revenue.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Chandra-yuti-Guru e expands both the scope of her musical reach and the number of her health complaints.

Guru in bhava-6 suggests that the husband-figure (the first husband) had adversarial, polluted, or conflicted qualities. However Chandra karmesha indicates career and Chandra-yuti-Guru pairs the ruler of karmasthana-10 with the ruler of 10th from Chandra Thus whatever challenges may occur in the husband's character and context, one's career is likely to benefit from the union.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Zukra rules Thula radical lagna

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani casts disciplining drishti into 6, 10, and 1 * Shani's stability helps to maintain dignity in a lifestyle which is otherwise focused upon self-medication, artistic performance, and marital struggle. Shani-4 generally indicates an orderly childhood home and completion of the foundational educational layer. Many career entertainers do not finish high school because their performance schedule becomes too demanding and they are earning high incomes. Shani-4 in this nativity suggests that whatever the attractions or requirements of the artistic music-and-fashion career, her parents (4) ensured that she completed a basic high-school diploma.

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

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Ketu occupies 10th-from-Chandra, suggesting an emotionally evocative image of dissolution, characterizing a tragic, martyred, public symbolic role
