Feminine Nativities

Purvazadha * Apah

BPL commentary

For Purva-azadha births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.

Inspirational diplomatic grace

Feminine births in Purva-azadha carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Purvazadha ladies are often dramatists, musical entertainers, and fashion models. They can usually sing beautifully and play stringed instruments. They love to travel and serve as a muse to creative partners.

Purvazadha are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Feminine births in Asadhash tend to benefit from the effect of Zukra. Guru represents their typically generous husbands. They may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and fashion models.

In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists. Typically Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Zukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.

Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Purva-azadha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 99

"Lovely eyes set in a beautiful face,

  • with small cupid's bow lips

  • and brown, naturally curly hair,

  • describes the native with Purvazadha rising at birth.

She is also to be distinguished by the small well-proportioned feet.

She has a generous positive character

and should be successful in some occupation

  • which would enable her to employ her natural ability

  • as an organizer and manager .

She is apt to have been born in an influential family ."

Dad = Eliot Roosevelt was a nephew of POTUS-26 National Parks 1858-1919 Theodore Roosevelt . The year following her mom's death at ER's age-6, dad died of a seizure ER's age 7. A deeply serious alcoholic, dad died in a treatment asylum, suffering delirium tremens and in distress, jumped from a building top and a concussion seizure..

no incoming Parashari drishti

Surya-Vrizchika= Dharmesha-9 from Dhanuzya lagna and karmesha-10 from Vrischika-Chandra.

Surya-Vrizchika resides in 12th-from-Dhanuzya radical lagna = common placement for internationally active world leaders. Divine intelligence (Surya) is focused upon distant lands and clandestine events. One may be brightly identified with distant, private, and often invisible scenes. Mrs. Roosevelt was a world diplomat starting in 1932, but her role was largely unseen by the public until very late in her life, when POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy nominated her to be US-United Nations ambassador during her Rahu-Budha bhukti * Budha karmapathi-10

Surya-Vrizchika -12 * deep composure, even under pressure of frightening (Vrischika) upheaval both political and personal.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Sarala Yoga

  • Chandra-Vrizchika * nichha * comforted by rhythmic penetration of mystery
  • Chandra in Anuradha * comforted by resistance to danger * protectors against preventable damage, guardians of customary weapons, defensive invasions, regulated explosions
  • Chandra in classroom-12 * comfort in contemplation, familiar with interiority, research enclosures, soothed by imagination, calming routine intuition, Other-Worldly spaces, privacy; undulating dreams
  • Somana-yuti-Surya * Emotionally entitled, sensitive to charismatic figures, attached to the father, needs centrality, comforted by confidence, undulating entitlements, soothed by attention, feels like a king
  • Somana-yuti-Kuja * Emotionally competitive, sensitive to brotherly figures, needs forward movement, invigorates the undulating routine, soothed by innovation, feels like a champion
  • Somana-yuti-Budha * Emotionally communicative, sensitive to sibling figures, sheltered by workmates and cohort, needs to evangelize, soothed by conversation, feels like a messenger

MOTHER + maternal grandmother

Mom = died ER's age 6 + Sade-Sati, from diphtheria. Chandra = nichha randhresha-8. Mom''s personality effectively unknown to ER due to premature death.

However, with three graha attending Chandra, ER had numerous additional mother-figures, including the aunts and maternal grandmother who raised ER from age 6 until age 15. Maternal grandmother represented via Shani-7 in 4th-from-4th and by 4th-from-Chandra = Shani-ruled Kumbha-3.

Sarala Yoga nichha-Chandra = Secret-keeper extraordinaire

identity-dissolution and enclosures; ensure privacy. No incoming Parashari drishti. randhresha-8 Vrischika-Chandra = keeping of secrets, a job for which Mrs. Roosevelt was held in high esteem. She kept diplomatic secrets, sexual secrets, and financial secrets with complete trustworthiness. Even her personal journals were very discreet.

Somana-yuti-Kuja = financially fortunate, an earner. Treasuries are present but reduced in Vyaya bhava. Although Mrs. Roosevelt was a highly competitive earner due to vriddhipathi Zukra-yuti-Rahu -10 payments for public roles (surpassing her husband's earnings during nearly every year of his presidency) she donated most of her income to charity (12).

Sarala Yoga Viparita Raja Roga provided randhresha Chandra in bhava-12

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership expectations

7th-from-Chandra-12 = bhava-6 = FDR

  • health concerns for husband, conflicts re: troubled, taboo-breaking women = nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu rules 7th-from-Chandra
  • Vargottamsha nichha-Chandra - private emotionally polarizing catalysis throughout life, private family disturbances, and constant destruction-then-rebirth of the ego-membrane which attends the randhresha-8

  • Vrischika-Chandra benefits capacity to retain confidential (8) information Chandra-yuti-Budha and compassionate (Chandra), behind-the-scenes (12) work with the holders of secret power. She flew many clandestine missions around the world representing her increasingly paralyzed husband, carrying private messages (Chandra-yuti-Budha) and doing a man's dangerous job (Mangala-Vrischika) while posing as a gentle and sensitive (trustworthy) woman - which of course she was.

  • ERt was a very complex female person. Mangala + Chandra-yuti-Budha + Surya providing an extraordinary range of skill to handle an nearly continuous experience of personal and national Emergency (Vrischika) on an almost completely private (12) basis.

  • Women in general are problematic when Chandra occupies a dusthamsha and particularly when Chandra enters the nichha state. The mother is lost (12) whether she persists in her flesh-body or not - psychically, she is gone.

    Her lovers and FDR's lovers were all active, psychologically and sexually problematic (for ER) and emotionally damaged women who contributed extremely important supportive (Chandra) and directive (Mangala) energy to the emergency efforts in the Great Depression and the second World War.


Eleanor Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt in the late 1930's. Although they separated in 1916, a skillful image-management team photographed the couple together at family events until FDR's death in 1945. Their marital disharmony was not widely known by the public until the 1960's.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Vrizchika * Swakshetra * vigorous pursuit of secrets * proactive exploration * push toward discovery * champion of emergency action
  • Mangala in bhava-12 * drive toward privacy, pursuit of inner guidance, distant lands, invasive ancestors, seeking sanctuary, clairsentient dynamics, energized invisible conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Surya * invigorated creativity, invigorated creativity, energized confidence, dynamic genius, masculine force joins willful charm, potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions , potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions , potential for aggressive political or dramatic actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Chandra * invigorated feelings, energized intuition, dynamic nurturance, masculine force joins parental care, potential for aggressive emotionalized actions , potential for aggressive emotionalized actions
  • Kuja-yuti-Budha * energized communication, dynamic reporting, masculine force joins messaging signal, potential for aggressive gestures, speech, and writing

Mangala rules the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra

Mangala in bhava-12generates a significant Kuja Dosha.

Mangala Mahadasha * age 63.9 until age 70.9

1945-1952 served as US Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly . She played a key role in drafting the first global-scope ethical humanist bill of rights based on self-evident truths, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which remains the most important natural-law foundation for human rights action worldwide.

Vrischika-Mangala = swakshetra Vidyapthi-5+ruler-of-12 from Dhanuzya lagna and lagnesha-1 +rogesha-6 from Vrischika-Chandra.

  • Lvidyapathi-5 politics + ruler-of-12 private relationships and"under the table" international diplomacy = lord of Chandra = lord of the nativity

Energy is dissolved due to the population of bhava-12. Lords of 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12 occupy 12. randhresha-8 in 12 gives Sarala Yoga which dissolves most of the troubles associated with widowhood (8) [in Eleanor's day, a divorciada would have suffered a similar degree of social obloquy as a widow] however Sarala yoga may also indicate the loss of inheritance and the dissolution of magical powers.

  • Swakshetra Mangala in Vyaya bhava generates a significant Kuja Dosha. Yet, due to Sarala Yoga, Mrs. Roosevelt was able to avoid the problems attendant upon splitting the large estate that she shared with FDR; thus she retained most of her funding and was able to continue in a public service partnership with her husband even while he was notoriously unfaithful (rogesha-6 nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu ).

  • She conducted a private sexual (Mangala, 12) life according to her own preference for accomplished male and female companions (Mangala with Chandra, Vrischika). Children are somewhat alienated (vidyapathi-5 in 12) and marital harmony is utterly lost (not only yuvatipathi-7 in 12 but more importantly Shani/Mithuna/7). However the private life and clandestine relationships conducted in bedroom or distant-land sanctuary are psychologically, emotionally, and sexually complex and rich.

  • As vidyapathi-5 from lagna and lagnesha-1 from Chandra, but weakened in 12, Mangala becomes a weak benefic.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Vrizchika * hidden communications, articulation of transformative secrets, emergency pronouncements, messages about camouflaged, undisclosed mysteries, defined masking, expertly detailed disguise
  • Budha in bhava-12 * narrative of sanctuary, hermitage, quietude, spiritual guidance * describe reflective contemplation, discusses the astral inner terrain, explainer of private prayer, delivers instructions for communication with distant worlds, talks about clairsentience, dreams, and visions
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * explainer of dramatic intelligence * affinity for central roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction * explainer of dramatic intelligence * affinity for central roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction * articulation of radiant authority, message of willpower and charisma, confidently talkative father, talkative father
  • Budha-yuti-Chandra * explainer of feelings, articulation of comfortable routines, message of sensitivity and emotional flow, intuitively talkative mother
  • Budha-yuti-Mangala * explainer of competitive energies * affinity for engineering, invasive, exploratory roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction *articulator of competitive energies, signals forward action, message of innovation and forward movement, outspoken, fraternal conversations, aggressive communications, talkative brother-figures

Budha Mahadasha * age 3.9 until age 20.9

dynamic, energized writing + Budha rules career 7 + 10

ER wrote and published more than 60 magazine articles over the course of FDR's 12-year presidency.

Vrischika-Budha = yuvatipathi-7 +karmesha-10 from the Dhanuzya lagna and randhresha-8 +Vriddhipathi-11 from Vrischika-Chandra.

  • Bantering Budha in bhava-12 = an overall uncomfortable bhava-pathi, ruling no trinal bhava from either Dhanuzya lagna nor the Vrizchika Chandra.

  • The internal mental chatter is deranged by extreme emotions responding to the trauma of childhood. Marriage is virtually destroyed by the combination of Vrizchika Budha in 12 along with Shani-Mithunaya in Yuvati bhava.

  • Nevertheless an agreement is available due to auspice of Chandra (Sarala yoga) and the native continues outer life while the inner torment rages.

In Mrs. Roosevelt's case is severe, due to exacerbation of Mangala-ruled Surya in 12.

  • Her dashingly handsome and rich father was utterly profligate and died of alcohol poisoning in an asylum.

  • Her equally profligate husband, despite FDR's extraordinary personal charisma (Jyeztha), and FDR's expansiveness outside of marriage resulted in mistreatment of his wife.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


Guru rules Dhanuzya lagna

  • Guru-Dhanuzya * mulatrikona * much philosophy, broad worldview, doctrine of inclusive diversity, humanistic guidance, expands the scope of belief, multiple theories, many sacred teachings
  • Guru in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto *swabhava * many and diverse doctrines, multiple beliefs, much preaching, broad understanding of teachings, multiple father-figures, father may be overbearingly philosophical, many guru-professor, much patronage, extensive worldview

Lagnesha Guru-9 reinforces her global reach and philosophical, humanistic contribution to civilization. But also, karako bhavo nashto for the father.

Guru-9 occupies the career visibility leadership oriented 10th-from-Chandra. ER was known above all for the breadth of her social vision, the scope of her charitable works, and her principled beliefs.

Simha-Guru = lagnesha and bandesha-4 from Dhanuzya lagna ; dhanapati-2 and vidyapathi-5 from Vrischika-Chandra.

Professor Guru, a natural pleasure-giver subhagraha, tends to produce favorable results for matters of The flesh-body and its appearance ( the native 's image became very well-known, albeit not as a fashion model because nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu for an unbalanced appearance occupies the high-visibility "peak" of bhava-10);

schooling and ownership of properties; accumulated monies via family lineage and knowledge gained through a good education (esp. languages);schooling and ownership of properties; accumulated monies via family lineage and knowledge gained through a good education (esp. languages);

As well as fortune through Children due to Guru as vidyapathi-5 from Chandra, which significantly counteracts the misfortunate of vidyapathi-5 from lagna Kuja in occupation of the dissolving twelfth house.

Incoming drishti of Shani gives discipline in public roles, and some moral or religious restriction on public behavior.

Guru is also lord of Dhanusha navamsha (Swamsha) and therefore a most auspicious graha giving a spiritualized and priestly worldview.

Benevolent Brihaspati is a naturally strong graha but it is still OK to strengthen due to a small liability as dhanapati-2 (non-trine, non-kendra). Lagnesha Guru/Simha/bhava-9- priest, professor, and patroness of transformative wisdom through political action (Simha)

In practice, a super-strong Guru in 9 = karako bhavo nashto = too much expansion, too much permission.

  • For a feminine nativity, strong Guru/9 = much frustration and planned misalignments requiring realignment attention in the relationship to both husband and father .

  • Men who take the karmic roles of husband (Guru) and father (9) look generous, wise, and often charismatic on the outside, but within their personal relationship to the female native they behave in an arrogant style that refuses any behavioral limitation. A know-it-all, jovial exterior but inwardly a very selfish style.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

atmakaraka Zukra

  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, likes logical argument, * attracted to laboring classes, servants, and animals * prefers exploitive, unbalanced arrangements * pleasures of medication and toxic pain relief * enjoys humility * aligned to unfair, distrusting contracts * alliance in ministries of service * aesthetic of rremedies for injustice
  • Zukra-10 * pleasure of regulation, enjoys lawful, socially iconic, feminine-figures harmonious ability to govern and direct, financially visible equity, appreciation of order, legislates justice
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * sweetened adventure, gracious ambition, appreciation for exciting opportunism, masked negotiations, over-reaching agreements, exceptional beauty, enjoys cultural mixing * arrangements support diplomatic equity balanced with exhilarating risk, risk-rewarding contracts

Zukra rules gracious, diplomatic Zukra-ruled Purvazadha

Kanya-Zukra = Atmakaraka nichha lord of 6 and 11 from Dhanuzya lagna ; 7 and 12 from Vrischika-Chandra.

  • No incoming Parashari drishti, but yuti Rahu makes for amplified troubles with women.

  • Combined with the nichha Chandra, many troubles from women of all ranks and varieties, from the mother and mother-in-law to secretaries, daughters, and lovers.

  • nichha-Zukra-yuti-Rahu * much trouble from women, inability to feel beautiful - yet loved by the public (10)

  • Dignity in 10: Despite unfortunate bhava-lordship, Zukra in the prominent karma bhava, house of leadership and iconic representations of elite or governing figures, gives Mrs. Roosevelt tremendous visibility at the top of the governing elite (10). Her appeal to common women at a time of national catastrophe (the Great Depression and WWII) was exceptionally strong. It was her specifically non-glamorous, sensible, and plain style which allowed those suffering from poverty and conflict to find in her a role model and guide.

  • She bore indignity with dignity - and was much loved by several generations of trouble-bearing women because of it.

  • Zukra as ruler of all non-trine, non-kendra bhava, is not a weak benefic.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Mithunaya * tiresome old documents * resistance to change of explanations * obliged to conform to the hierarchical managers * must materialize orderly information delivery * rigid process handling * heavy old discussions * obligatory, strictly scripted conversations * inflexible instructions * must endure the lowest-common-denominator proletarian communication * slow elderly messengers * vital energy compression stress zone = hand-arm-shoulder * restricted breathing * insufficient team cooperation * must continue to collaborate, cooperate, gesture, and signal despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-7 * digbala * (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious partnerships. One must balance and re-balance. Cautious, conventional relationships. Tense negotiations. Chronic responsibilities toward the spouse; compression of the visible genitalia; heavy legacy pressure against freely chosen contracts. Bargaining fatigue. Resistance to new arrangements. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as married person, contract-holder, match-maker, attorney, diplomat, judge.

ER's Shani-7-Mithunaya-Mriga exactly matches FDR's Chandra in Mriga-Mithunaya

Shani occupies the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

Shani Mahadasha * age birth until age 3.9

Shani rules 3 ++ Shani rules 3rd-from-Chandra = double-powered writing, publishing, short-tour, announcement, reports, project-management

Six days per week from 1934 until her death in 1962, ER wrote the popular newspaper column "My Day" detailing her humanitarian concerns, current events, and social views

Mithunay-Shani-Shani = dhanapati-2 + bhratrupathi-3 from Dhanuzya lagna ; bhratrupathi-3 + bandesha-4 from Vrischika-Chandra.

  • Sober Shani receives Parashari drishti of Mangala; Mangala is the dispositor of Professor Shani's ruler, Professor Budha. This chain of control indicates significant clandestine activity and private relationships within the marriage and also perhaps Mrs. Roosevelt's international espionage service as requested by her husband FDR.

  • Navamsha Shani enjoys uttama status yuti Mangala - suggesting her husband's high responsibilities in times of great conflict.

Shani-Mithunaya-Mriga in bhava-7 - habitual infidelities of both spouses. Shani-Mithunaya/7 per se = notoriously difficult for marriage, as it brings the dhanapati-2 for second marriage into the house of the first marriage, the malefic lord of 8th-from-yuvati enters Yuvati. When combined with the marriage-karaka Professor Zukra whose teachings are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (which are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding) usually via constrictive drishti. The prognosis for a conventional, monogamous marriage is grim. However, a non-conventional marriage did emerge and the partners served their nation brilliantly at a time of tremendous need, despite their personal travails.

One benefit of the bhratrupathi-3 in bhava-7 can be that the partners are able to remain in conversation however strained, and that a sibling-type bond may be adequate to replace the lost intimacy of marriage. The uttama status of Shani in navamsha suggests that her husband maintained respectful and goal-oriented communications with his public-partner wife and that both parties placed public duties above the comfort of their own personal preferences.

Shani rules no trinal house from either Dhanuzya lagna nor Vrizchika Chandra. Therefore Shani is not a weak benefic.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Kanya * shimmering illusion of humility * craving for crime * mask of exploitation * ambitious medications * intriguing addictions * mirage of humble service ministry * fascinating injuries * over-reaching logic of injustice * amazing illnesses * extraordinary arguments * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of medical skill, shrewd management of conflict and war, divorce remediation, accusatory litigation, victim-roles

  • Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * in swabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual iconic, symbolic, representational, government, executive authority, social status; desires a special, important, regulating role in privileged socially visible ranks. Exciting, opportunistic leaders, ambitious bosses and government officials. Thrives in culturally-mixed legislative, executive settings. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a boss, an authority-figure, a decision-maker, a legislator, a tyrant. Bhava-10 social authority = a publicly recognized environment for boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu.
  • Zukra-yuti-Rahu * amplified attractions, magnified beauty. exotic art-music, tricky arrangements, opportunistic feminine-figures, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of luxuriously lovely pleasures

Kanya-Rahu = Rahu in bhava-10 gives the effect of the nichha-Zukra and Rahu's ruler Budha.

  • Neither Zukra nor Budha qualify as pleasure-giver subhagraha. Rahu is not a weak benefic.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Meena * dissociates from Otherworldly understanding, incomplete clairsentience, empty dreams, dissolute guidance, not limited by cetacean culture, ignores restriction on intuition, disarrayed wisdom
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the homestead, absentee mother-figure, disregards local customs, dissolved property boundaries, wanders from home, irrelevance of the established folkways. One abandons the nationality, dismisses the parents, walks away from the ancestral routines.

Meena-Ketu = Ketu in bhava-4 who gives the effect of radiant Simha Guru.

  • The parents are nearly non-existent in the early life. Mental health issues or substance addiction for the parents. (her father died in an asylum from extreme alcohol toxicity, note also the dissolution of Surya).

  • Incoming drishti of Shani gives discipline in home management roles, and some moral or religious restriction on home behavior.

  • Vacant Ketu in bhava-4 - unsettled "wandering" conditions in the childhood home (yet the home is very prosperous materially due to strength of bandesha-4 Guru). As an adult in empowered public service, Mrs. Roosevelt was away from home for many extended bhukti.

  • Not a weak pleasure-giver subhagraha.

  • Due to the positive nature of Benevolent Brihasapti ,dissociating Ketu may bring gains of financial well-being , property, and religious optimism during His bhukti
