Pdt. David Frawley commentary

Shakti of the Purvazadha Nakshatra

"The Water Goddesses desired, "May we, at our wish, gain the sea ."

One who makes the appropriate offering to the Water Goddesses, to Ashadha,

  • gains at wish the sea.

Under Purvazadha one seeks connections like water desiring to reach the ocean.

It is a creative, nurturing and healing Nakshatra ."

Dennis Harness commentary on Shakti of the Purvazadha Nakshatra

"20. Purva Ashadha: The Invincible Star

(Sagittarius 13 30 to 26 40 )

Purva Ashadha means early victory or the undefeated, the unsubdued .

The symbol is a fan or a winnowing basket, which rids corn of the husks.

The fan can signify popularity as their name is fanned around a lot by the public.

...

The primary deity is Apas, the Cosmic Waters.

Varuna, the God of the Waters, is considered a secondary deity for this nakshatra.

The shakti experienced here is the power of invigoration .

Purva Ashadha has a human or manushya temperament with a primary motivation of moksha, or spiritual liberation."

BPL commentary Re: Purvazadha Nakshatra

Purvazadha * Apah * Lord Zukra * pada-1-2-3-4 [13:20 until 26:40 Dhanuzya] = (11th, Zukra).

If Purva-Azadha * Apah is the nakshatra upon the eastern horizon at the time of birth, one may express the Zukra-influenced belief that sensual pleasure, wealth, music, and beauty are the keys to life.

Achievement of gains and goals via sensual or financial immersion.

May serve as a peace-maker using techniques of pleasure and capital wealth to balance awkward, incommensurable or incompatible elements (awkward shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle).

Negotiates a network of profitable connections via dealing with money and pleasures.

Often a businessperson in finance, arts, design, diplomacy, balancing devices, religious vestments, or matters of interest to women.

Generally easier placement for a female.

Earnings according to natal characteristics of Zukra.


Zukra-ruled Purvazadha = less auspicious for Males (Guru vs Zukra)

The"early victories " of Purva-azadha may produce glorious success in the first half of life. However the Purva-azadha male tends to sputter and flutter in the second half of life. Thus the Purva-azadha male is advised to invest wisely.

males are apt to have trouble via excesses involving too much self-destructive change via women

  • due to Purvazadha effect + Dhanuzya lagna : Zukra = rogesha-6 + Chandra = randhresha-8


Auspicious for female nativities , who enjoy voluptuous figures and wealth via the Vriddhipathi-11 Zukra. The female figure becomes positively stout in the later years, while treasury remains robustly stout as well.

financial well-being is developed, expanded, enjoyed.

However the Dhanuzya lagna female may have some trouble regarding catastrophic changes or upheaval in maternal behavior re: one's own mother due to Chandra = randhresha-8 for Dhanuzya lagna

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

BPL comment:

Purva-azadha-pada-1 radical lagna puts

The Purva-azadha-pada-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 Purva-azadha-pada-1 nativity is typically professionally engaged with matters of Vrishabha such as visual arts, illustration, beautification, women's ornamentation and fashion, eyes-hair-face, mouth-teeth, flowers, perfumes and aromatic oils, sensual pleasures, speech, song and music, facial beauty, eyesight, banking and financial treasures, sweets and liquors, dairy foods and cattle.

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 navamsha lagna, 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.

Purva-azadha-pada-4 radical lagna puts

The Purva-azadha-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.

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 a political figure whose need for equitable agreements may weaken the effectiveness of leadership.
