Feminine Nativities

Arudra * Trinetra

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.

Rahu-ruled Arudra ladies are often found in sensuous, writhing, twisting, fascinating 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 ladies can send waves of desire (Rahu) through an audience numbering one or one-million.

Arudra feminines are often the diva type who are sensuously clever (Rahu), verbally quick, and impatient. Thiruvaathira feminine-figures may be gifted in handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of seductive imagery such as photography, costume, and arts-of-style (Budha).

Themes of illusion, passion, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra's terrestrial experience.

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

"A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...

Her disagreeable disposition,

coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,

  • makes it difficult for other people to tolerate her.

Although she is extremely clever in her conversation

and many people will be impressed by her speech,

  • while still disliking her.

She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,

  • but on herself rather than on others,

  • although at times she will be grudgingly generous
  • to those with whom she comes in contact.

She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

  • as there is a tendency towards tuberculosis."
