Feminine Nativities

Arudra-Orion * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra births of a feminine 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.


Rahu-ruled Arudra ladies have stormy temperament. They may be considered capricious, inconsistent, and demanding. Often they are 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.

Depending upon Arudra's social environment, their seductive appeal may express as private or public When professionalized, Tiruvaatira-born may be stage performers of high excellence, who send waves of desire (Rahu) through an audience numbering one or one-million.

Arudra women are often the diva type who are sensuously clever (Rahu) verbally quick, and impatient with those who are less communicatively responsive. Thiruvaathira-born 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 stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra.

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."

When Saturn occupies Cancer and is aspected by Mars,

  • he will become rich through royal or divine favor, will be maimed in physique, will have wealth."

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka \


Bantering Budha rules Mithunaya radical lagna

  • Budha-Dhanuzya * doctrinal communications, articulation of beliefs

  • Guru-yuti-Ketu upeksha-karaka * multiple disregarder-disperser figures, many disconnections, much surrender

Guru-yuti-Ketu-Meza occupies the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra suggesting several iterations of career-profession

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

Malavaya Yoga

  • Zukra-Meena * uttama * appreciation of music-arts, aesthetic of dreamlike visions

Shani will not fail to deliver a heavy workload in the literary and performance arts. Shakira signed a 10-year contract to produce or purchase a fixed amount of lyrics, and to perform a rigorous concert schedule around the world.

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

  • Rahu-Thula *craving for trade * mask of fairly bargained contracts; fascinated by arrangements, deals, term of agreement * seeks special importance via negotiation, via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) diplomacy, advising
  • Rahu in bhava-5 * passion for politics, celebrity, games * in swabhava of Splendid Surya, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual children; out-of-bounds creativity, and amplified poetic romance; Risk-rewarding Rahu generates a charismatic individuality, center-of-attention displays of creative genius. Desires a special, important role in performance arts, literary arts, entertainments, royalty roles, pageantry, celebrity events, or dramatic splendor. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious children and lovers. Rahu the Poseur may wear the persona (mask) of a dramatic actor, a celebrated intellectual, or a politician. Craves the center stage, the lights, the glory. Rahu-5 trespasses the cultural boundaries in matters of unique personal creativity, children, speculation, gaming. Seeks flamboyant fashion, exceptional offspring, and the thrill of political theatre.

Rahu occupies the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra suggesting a childhood home with mixed ethnic influences, opportunism, and cultural adventure

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu in classroom-11 * absent from friendships, disregards profitability * no barriers in community, dissolves the social network, vacuous associations, irrelevance of the material goals, ambivalence toward economic empowerment. One abandons the elder siblings, ignores marketplace earnings, surrenders the electro-magnetic connections. May prefer to live without electricity, or off-the-grid.
  • Guru-yuti-Ketu * surrendered abundance, empty expansions, disconnected teachers, unsustainable doctrine, apathetic diversity, disbelief, dissolution of dogma

when in school in Barranquilla, diagnosed with ADHD * Guru-yuti-Ketu * Guru rules 7 = 4th-from-4th schooling and Guru rules Budha the Messenger. Nevertheless, whatever the diagnosis, the condition is well-compensated via a calculating angular lagnesha Budha-7

A beautiful woman, and a very successful musician with a highly profitable entertainment enterprise, Shakira nonetheless has expressed her ongoing body-image issues related to Guru-yuti-Ketu = size and tendency toward expansiveness
