Feminine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu * Slaviztha * Avittam * Hrsikesha

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born ladies endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These women are athletic, goal-oriented, and competitive. Those who have chosen a feminine-form birth may find themselves surrounded by invigorating but dominating masculine figures. Male colleagues may be surprised to discover that despite their feminine style, Dhaniztha ladies are equal and serious competitors. Their sexual energies are alive, and may be used to advantage.

In the modern era, Dhaniztha ladies may use Mangala's kinetic energies to ascend the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani,. They strive for alpha-dominant positions. All fields of competitive endeavor are open to the Avittam-born, including athletics and contests. Often preferring applied scientific careers with measurable outcomes, Dhaniztha-born are also found in all types of systematic intervention into their environment, such as social engineering, political engineering, or materials engineering.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, feminine Vasu champions are often surrounded by lawful, systematic, and timid folk who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascending drive. They are often respected in the boss role due to theie ability to dominate the field of activity while keeping the respect of their male peers.

Vasu-born ladies face particular challenges in Kuja's aggressive, male-dominated environments. Their career pathway is studded with rough dominators using physical force and even brutality. Yet, a well-placed, vigorous Mangala, along with Shani's natural lawful patience, can bring Dhaniztha women to the peak of social recognition and economic achievement.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-roots + 11-goals. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police and defense (4) minerals and mining (4) or in any industry where the path to economic gain (11) is open to their goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions - especially communications -- this breed competes aggressively for leadership. Their innovative actions may forcefully change the status quo in even the most entrenched environments. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Themes of conquest, pursuit, and achievement may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha
