Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary:

For Mriga-sirasa natives, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects 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 from the civilizations of Orion

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.

The 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.
