BPL commentary: For Arudra natives, the disposition of Rahu considerably affects the outcome.
Arudra females are often the 'diva' type: sensuously fascinating (Rahu) but demanding.
"A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...
Her disagreeable disposition,
coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,
Although she is extremely clever in her conversation
and many people will be impressed by her speech,
She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,
She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

Chandra + Zukra + Guru occupies 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu.
nakshatra of Chandra-Mrigaziras + Dhaniztha nakshatra of navamsha-1 are both ruled by competitive, military Mangala.
Mangala-yuti-Rahu also occupies critical Kanya in navamsha-9.
She is a dangerous enemy, always on guard knowing that her demise should come from within her inner circle.
Intense Kuja Dosha upon 5-6-8 suggests a miscarriage or two (5) along with the benefits of rogesha-6 Kuja drishti upon 6-and-8. Enemies-of-the-enemies are often helpful when ruler of 6 occupies 6th-from-6th. Others arranged the murder of her husband and competitor for the throne.
