Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary:

For Mriga-sirasa births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, attack, and provoke.

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be physically fit, agile, and energetic in pursuit of the win. They are often found in politics, manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Those born in pada 1-2 pursue legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded environments, such as the laboratories, private bedrooms, or in distant lands. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are profit-driven and not averse to theft or breaking contracts for advantage. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mriga-zirasa.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

[BPL comment: for example, China-Dictator 1893-1976 Mao Zedong, undescended right testicle]

Mao Zedong was born in a small agricultural village in Hunan Province of southern China, one of four surviving children.

His father was a grain speculator ( Surya bhratrupathi-3 commerce in 7 deals, contracts) and his mother was a homekeeper as well as money-saver(Chandra-2 Karkata)

Partner-1 for Chandra-2-nativity: Mao Zedong was first married in 1907 at his age 13.5 to a girl chosen by his family. According to custom, the young wife joined the household of her husband in service to his parents. While away for studies, Zedong was notified that the girl had died in 1910. His family conducted her funeral. Consistent with Chandra-2 marriages which tend to produce a camouflaged, masked spouse, this childless early marriage was "hidden" from his public record for many years.

Rahu-10 * 'Chairman Mao" was during his lifetime the Draconian leader of the country with the densest concentration of people living in poverty and famine. China was also the most incorrigibly stratified society in the world. Rahu's ruler atmakaraka Guru-Meza-11 a rigidly ideological viewpoint, ruthless destruction of life and religion driven by pioneering innovation in economic systems.

Extraordinary parivartamsha of uttama-Shani-4 with Zukra-Makara-7 4th-from-4th and 10th-from-10th

Land reform as the primary means for social justice was his stated goal * Shani-4 parivartamsha Zukra in 4th-from-4th

Perpetually engaged in the imposition of his vision of social justice (uttama-Shani) through conformity to the lowest common denominator (Shani drishti to Guru) equality of men and women (Shani drishti to Surya-yuti-Chandra)

Four Marriages Shani lord of Zukra (wives) obtains the uttama-amza in SEVEN varga. Zedong was married four times, produced ten recognized children, and enjoyed countless liaisons

Engaged in a similar process of ideologically driven cultural restructuring and similarly following the dictum of Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx that 'religion is the opiate of the people' Mao Zedong was motivated to drive out religion from the land. substituting for the historic religious cults, Mao encouraged the cult of the Fatherland (Rahu-10) and a Cult of Personality based on his own visage as the Great Father. Thus Mao became a deity.

Negotiation, Structure, and Rule of Law

Vargottamsha uttama-Shani-4 parivartamza Zukra-7 = supremely powerful in matters of land (4) and law (7). Mao the Law Giver had a super-empowered uttama-Shani* law, punishments, social balance, social justice, social reform enjoying a diplomatic parivartamsha with Zukra.

The Shani-Zukra exchange obtains in in most of the varga as well.

receives ambitious, expedient drishti from Rahu-Meena-10

Soothing Somana-2 accepts drishti of uttama-Shani thus reducing Chandra-2's tendency to acquire material goods in pursuit of security.

Personal tastes - Zukra-7

According to Mao Tse-tung (1893 - 1976) – his habits and his health

"Mao ... had countless mistresses and, like Chinese emperors of antiquity, believed that regular sex ensured a long life. As the established national leader, mistresses were supplied according to his wishes; during the chaos of the Cultural Revolution, he enjoyed 3 to 5 women simultaneously in his bed. Even when he had become incapable of sexual relations, he insisted on having young women around him. Although he was not blatantly bisexual, it is recorded that attractive young men were occasionally invited to satisfy him sexually. He had an undescended right testicle, suffered from various venereal diseases (including gonorrhea and genital herpes) and, by 1955, semen analysis showed him to be sterile. Fear of impotence, especially in times of stress, was a major worry."

dharmapathi dharmesha-9 in 6th-from-9 uttama-Shani-4 = A strict and secretive Father

Mao Zedong's father Mao Yichang rose from the crippling poverty of his Hunan agricultural lineage to a position of considerable material wealth. According to" Mao Zedong's father served in the Chinese Army then "became a moneylender and grain merchant, buying up local grain and selling it in the city for a higher price, becoming one of the wealthiest farmers in Shaoshan, with 20 acres of land." Shani-4 land

Son learns from a Master Father Mao's father was a local grain speculator, who hoarded grain rurally waiting for a shortage, then carried his hoard to the city where it sold for a higher price. His father was also in the mani-mani-money-lending business (bhratrupathi-3 Surya-7 commercial deal-maker) .

As communist dictator, Mao Zedong arranged large-scale grain hoarding by the revolutionary forces in order to feed the party loyalists, while millions of peasants starved in their fields.

Simultaneously, whilst fueling a famine (Mangala-6), Mao illegalized peasant food-hoarding (Azlesa-Chandra-2) as a capital crime.
