Masculine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni * Bhagadaivata * Prakphalguni * Arjuni

BPL commentary:

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine 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, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Hamilton's legal father was the wealthy Scottish merchant James Hamilton.

James Hamilton abandoned Alexander's mother. Mom had returned with a lover to her Caribbean birthplace, where Alexander and his elder brother James were born.

The lover (who may or may not have been Alexander's father) then abandoned the young family. His mother carried on operating a shop (where her money-bright son did the finances) until her own death when Alexander was 13.

Lagnesha makara-Surya-6 is weakened and joining a burnt, asta-harana Zukra-6

A brilliant government strategist and institutional architect (Makara) but a reactively self-reflexive respondent, Alexander Hamilton may have suffered from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Typically this condition originates with the internalization of shame during childhood.

In the punitive and judgmental Dutch Reformed culture of the white classes of Caribbean sugar planters, his family conditions would have been adjudged to be shameful. Although obviously brilliant, he would also have been subject to righteous exclusionism, shunning, and taunting. Historians have long commented that Hamilton's obsession with honor and worthiness likely stems from his childhood trauma.

Soon after his mother's death at his age 13, Alexander was adopted by another merchant living on the island. Alexander was said to bear an uncanny resemblance to this merchant's other son, not only in physique but also in character.

The adoptive father also provided for Alexander's schooling, including tuition at King's College in New York -- which led many to speculate that Alex was actually his bio-son.
