"Florid, ruddy complexion, with brown curly hair and drowsy eyes, with red sports on them.

  • Acquisitive but stupid - selfish but easily led.

  • His stupidity makes him somewhat suspicious of other people.

  • Laborers and domestic classes usually found here.

People who do what they are told and lack initiative."

BPL comment:

Bharani-1 radical lagna puts

The Bharani-1 nativity shows many of the typical Simha traits of glittering intelligence, enjoyment of center-stage roles, interest in politics and drama, and natural self-centered authority.

Vrishabha on the 10th-navamsha suggests that the Bharani-1 nativity is typically professionally engaged with matters of Vrishabha such as visual arts, illustration, women's ornamentation and fashion, eyes-hair-face, mouth-teeth, beautification, flowers, perfumes and aromatic oils, sensual pleasures, song and music, facial beauty, eyesight, banking and financial treasures, sweets and liquors, dairy foods and cattle.

Zukra-ruled Bharani is very much musically, artistically, sensually, and financially oriented. The first pada of Bharani often brings these natural traits high into public visibility.

Any graha located in Vrishabha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be subject to revaluation and reassessment because Professor Zukra indicates historical, financial, and aesthetic value.

If, within the Simha swamsha, the nakshatra of the navamsha-lagna lies between 13:21 and 26:39 (Purvaphalguni) then the Zukra-ruled artistic, musical, beauty. and finance indicators are further strengthened.

"Not reliable.

  • Has loose morals, and is a philanderer.

  • Liable to take advantage of friends and family;

deceives the world by his engaging speech and manner."

BPL comment:

Bharani-2 radical lagna puts

The Bharani-pada-2 nativity shows many of the typical Kanya traits of service-ministry and orientation to health care, unbalanced arrangements, and mitigation of pollution (cleaning).

The Bharani-pada-2 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of communicative Mithunaya such as writing and editing, publications, conversation, announcements, declarations, documentation, media-messaging, evangelism, cinema, radio-television-internet, books-magazines-journals-blogs, travel itineraries, scheduling, planning, meetings, business administration, project management, conferences, seminars, presentations, instructional delivery, description, explanation, diagrams, photography, drawings, hand-craft, tool-use, apprenticeship.

Any graha located in Mithunaya 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The definition of the public career may be subject to re-describing and re-explaining because Professor Budha indicates chattering.

In Bharani-2 there is always an element of psychological tension between the adversarial agenda of Blustering Budha who rules the both the 10th-navamsha and the swamsha versus the agenda of Military Mangala who rules the innovative, pioneering Meza lagna. Professor Budha wants to argue and discuss while Professor Mangala the Initiator wants to Get Things Done. This tension often exacerbates the digestive ailments associated with Kanya.

from Das commentary upon 2nd pada of Bharani nakshatra

"You are generally not well-liked, in spite of the fact that you are pure hearted and do not harm anyone.

  • When you want to express your opinion in any matter you are just not bothered about the sentiment of others.

  • You tend to face criticism and loss of wealth .

  • You like to command others and will always be e ager to establish supremacy.

  • Your spouse must save money for a rainy day, as you may make some impulsive purchases, whether there is money left for other purposes or not.

BPL comment:

Bharani-3 radical lagna puts

The Bharani-pada-3 nativity shows many of the typical Thula traits of bargaining, trade, negotiation, match-making, deal-making, concern with the terms of the contractual agreement, and seeking of alliance.

The Bharani-pada-3 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of Karkata such as rhythms and routines of a settled people, folk customs, local environments, protective and nurturing behaviors, caretaking, parenting, guardianship, stewardship, nourishment, stabilization , groundskeeping, homekeeping, gardening, farming, fishing, ocean tides, estuaries, cultivation, protection of land and property, patriotism , safety, policing, homemaking, nursing, early childhood teaching, sheltering, defending, temple rituals, seasonal festivals, comforts. real-estate, building, transportation, infrastructural security of the settlement.

Any graha located in patriotic Karkata 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The definition of the public career may fluctuate because Professor Chandra indicates Ebb and Flow.

Feminine Nativities

from Das / Behari

"A questionable character.

  • Wicked.

"Not reliable.

  • Has loose morals, and is a philanderer.

  • Liable to take advantage of friends and family;

deceives the world by his engaging speech and manner."

BPL comment:

Bharani-4 radical lagna puts

The Bharani-pada-4 nativity shows many of the typical Vrizchika traits of pursuit of hidden empowerments, sharp focus on the mysterious and confidential, drive to control, manipulative or intrusive nature, explosions and implosions, and energetic penetration of secrets.

The Bharani-pada-4 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of Simha such as politics and political elections, theatre, literary creativity, performance arts, celebrity, royal entitlements, pageantry, poetry, ceremony, entertainments, ceremonial dance, children, romance, courtly love, games, gambling, expressions of genius, applause, brilliant confidence, solar power, bright lights, Divine Intelligence, self-knowledge, ego, individuality, independence, non-conformity, exceptionalism, uniqueness, center of attention, brilliant red things.

Any graha located in glittering Simha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be brightly visible because Professor Ravi indicates self-referential radiance.

There is potential for the development of a splendid healer and brilliant symbol of intelligent transformation. But there is an equal potential for the development of an acquisitive control-freak political dictator.

Special note from Shil-Ponde. (1939).

"If the planet Mars is found in [Bharani] on the Rising Point,

  • the native will have an accident to his head

  • which will leave a permanent scar at the age of 7 or 8, or at the age of 27 or 28."
