Masculine Nativity

Anuradha * Maitra

BPL commentary

For Anuradha births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic Shani may considerably affect the outcome.

Elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instruction from the guardians of the civilizations of Gisgan-gusura. Their purpose is to impose safety in dangerous conditions via threat-containment and damage-control.

Hazard Regulation

Anuradha imposes order after chaos. Maitra-born have a special gift for threat reduction. After the terrifying, explosive Shock of Visaka-Radha, enter Anuradha for damage mitigation and triage. Shani-ruled Anuradha requires lawful, mandatory compliance.

Maitra-born are found in emergency centers, disaster response control rooms, high-risk insurance, elite rescue operations, military ordnance control, explosives testing, hazardous materials management, hazardous substance regulation..

Maitra-born are often the bridge-builders following a social scandal or fight. Anizham strive to maintain order in dangerous conditions via regulatory structures such as war policy, catastrophe protocol, social strategies for responding to epidemic disease and famine, and emergency rules such as martial law. Being Shani-ruled, they are naturally suited to medical, legislative, and executive governance positions.

Themes of risk regulation, damage control , and orderly response to traumatic shock may contextualize the terrestrial experience of Anusham.. Also applied to Chandra in Anuradha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 85

"Usually robust and healthy,
  • yet the native of Anuradha gets very little enjoyment out of life.
Probably because he consciously strives after happiness
  • but with continual discontent and bitterness in his heart.
He has a deep secretive nature
  • and because of his attitude and outlook on life, he is somewhat unscrupulous .
"a sweet tongue but poison in the heart" aptly characterizes him."
