Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mula * Nirriti

BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Although apparently tame personalities Nirriti are emotionally comfortable with extreme risk. Often they go enthusiastically where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a surprising ability to convince others to grant them power - sometimes, absolute power. Mula's perception features a mix of ambivalence and apathy not only toward others but toward oneself. Liberated from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born under auspice of nakshatrapathi Alakmi preach their paradigm of belief without concern for material consequences. Thus freed from worry, they can be guided entirely by ideology with little-or-no pragmatic constraint.

Often involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti may be associated with shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having almost no fear of death, Mula engage in self-destructive behavior. Patriarchal sponsors and patronage may be essential to their success. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of religious preaching, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, ideological indoctrination, radical military, politics, and organized crime.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace , and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

Distinctive features of the Nativity


al-Assad April-2017 (age 52)

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Budha occupies 6th-from-Chandra

Budha in bhava-5 rules 7th-from-Chandra, suggesting that at least initially, Al-Assad's first wife would be a person of celebrity charm and media savvy (Budha rules 3 residing in 3rd-from-3rd supporting all types of media, propaganda, advertising, and announcements).

The initial results for Chandra-12 marriage typically produce a deeply service-oriented spouse who may identify strongly with the disenfranchised classes at least partially because she is disenfranchised within the marriage. Meanwhole, in this case, Surya-yuti-Budha in Simha-5 also indicates a regal, fashionable, courtly lifestyle with celebrity qualities. However the eventual results of lifepartner for Chandra-12 are expected to reveal either illness of the spouse or considerable disagreement.

Zukra-yuti-Kuja while Zukra occupies a nakshatra of Kuja could suggest (does not confirm, but does suggest) a homosexual orientation for this husband; two unions are predicted, and naturally this adds complexity to both partnerships.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru occupies the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra = an agent of stability

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Shatavisaka * Sadachbia * Shata-takara

BPL commentary

For Shata-taraka natives, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

Exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters,agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sadachbia* Tabernacles

Rahu-ruled Sata ladies are rare birds. They are often found in fascinating social roles that boost mass consciousness.Sata feminine figures are often mesmerizingly attractive, wealthy, and popular, although they are not conventional beauties.

Sadabija ladies may hold dignified social positions (Shani), and their conduct appears appropriate, but their personal lifestyles may be unorthodox. Their unusual social behavior often challenges outdated social stereotypes and improves economic opportunities for women. Yet, consciously or not, they may become instrumental pawns in a larger network.

Themes of over-reaching, charlatanry, entrancement, expedient linkage, hypnotic appearance, and connections between contradictory systems may contextualize Sata's terrestrial experience.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 100.

"A person who is controlled in her emotions.

  • She is not easily angered.

  • Her own sex respects her.

She is attached to her relatives

  • and beloved by her elders.

She will always maintain a good and respectable position in the community."
