Feminine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita

BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Budha may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, bandmates, team-mates, neighbors, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, merchants, reporters, writers, scripts, and texts may be especially influential.

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

QUOTATION: Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

"...independent self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

  • If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family, she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

  • She is careful and canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life,

  • occupy a very influential position

  • and be greatly respected."

Prominent Features of the Nativity




Surya * pitrikaraka


Kuja-Karmesha * ruler of Kuja-yuti-Rahu-Singha-10


Earl Spencer = involved in secret activities, and a camouflaged figure. Neither of her parents was present during much of a childhood spent with nannies and in boarding schools.

Mithunaya Surya-yuti-Budha served as iconic representative of numerous communications agenda (Mithunaya) including the campaign to end land-mines = secret, hidden phenomena.

Surya-8 rules 7th-from-Chandra containing Mangala-Rahu, ensuring an extremely high-profile marriage

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra in classroom-4 * digbala * comfort in routines, ruts, rates, rituals, roots, rhythms
  • Chandra-Kumbha * comforted rhythmic pulsing network linkage
  • Chandra in Dhaniztha-Vasu * comforted by forceful climbing * protectors of structured warfare, lawful conquest, orderly takeover, systematic dominance Social Climber
  • Somana-yuti-Ketu * Emotionally scattered, sensitive to disoriented figures, indifference, needs to wander, feels like a pilgrim

Chandra rules the emotionally conflicted, unbalanced, often toxic 6th-from-Chandra = bhava-9 patronage


Mrs. Frances Shand Kydde

Somana-yuti-Ketu can indicate psycho-mental mental disorientation of the Mother and eventually the self.

Following the historic pattern of British royalty, Charles and Diana allowed their children to be largely raised by servants so that her mothering behaviors became disconnected. In the famous BBC interview of 1995, Diana admitted suffering from such severe anxiety that she indulged in self-cutting (Ketu chidrakaraka cutting), gorging, bulimia, compulsive harassment behaviors, and attempted suicide. She developed bulimia as a body-dysmorphic response to emotional ungroundedness and incoherence of the primary sheltering-protective relationships (mother, husband).

Ms. Frances Kydd, the mother of Princess Diana, is popularly considered to have suffered from Borderline personality disorder. This assessment is due partly to the mother's early abandonment of her daughter and mom's repeated verbal attacks upon her daughter's life choices and behaviors (which can be classic BPD symptoms). At the time of her 1997 fleshdeath, Diana was suffering her own BPD episodes and in a no-contact protection from her very unprotective mother.

BPD is typically multi-generational and the primary pattern is betrayal and abandonment by the mother-figures. The public facade may remain intact, but the private reality is that the mother figure becomes an attacker. Diana and her siblings were abandoned by their mother following a contentious custody legal suit in which Diana's mother's mother testified that Diana's own mother was incompetent and should grant custody of her children to their father. Thus the maternal grandmother appears to demonstrate BPD symptoms as well.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership * 7th-from-Chandra-4

As would be expected from the Chandra-axis characteristics, involving Chandra-Ketu + Mangala-Rahu, Diana was married to a high visibility personality UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka


  • Mangala-Singha * vigorous pursuit of fame, drama; push toward entitlement
  • Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala * drive toward leadership, pursuit of social authority, invasive regulation, energized governing conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * energized pretense, dynamic desires, masculine force joins opportunistic ambition

Mangala-rules Chandra in Dhaniztha

Mangala rules the emotionally motivated communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra = bhava-6 animosity injustice accusation and the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra = radical Vrischika lagna

Ruler of the emotionally motivated, social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra located in karmasthana yuti Rahu guarantees a bright, active, taboo-breaking, high profile lifestyle.

Mangala-yuti-Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra indicates marriage partnership. 29 -July-1981 wedding ceremony was an international media event, attended by celebrities and dignitaries from all the world's major nations. 750 million people watched their wedding on international television.

The privileged couple produced two beautiful children, led charitable campaigns to improve lives of the less fortunate, took magnificent holidays, and otherwise appeared to enjoy an entirely charmed life. Yet, as the media tale of their marital woes unfolded, it became clear that Charles and Diana were miserably unhappy in their -- and had been so almost from the beginning. They worked and traveled separately -- although as Diana said they "had the same job".

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Mithunaya * swakshetra * business communications, articulation of mental messaging
  • Budha in bhava-8 * narrative of hidden mysteries, unexpected circumstances, sudden change
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * articulation of radiant confidence, message of willpower and charisma

Budha rules the celebrated, creative, child-centered 5th-from-Chandra

Budha occupies bhava-8 and Budha rules the secretive, undisclosed, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra . Intrigue, extramarital affairs, and masked communications.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Makara * nichha * much social structure, many rules, materialistic beliefs, doctrine of rank and structure
  • Guru in bhava-3 * many messages, much commerce, many sibling-cousins, much publication, many tours, frequent business trips, many sales, numerous discussions, much cohort interaction
  • Guru-yuti-Shani atta-karaka * multiple elder-figures, abundant structure, many rules

dhavakaraka nichha-Guru-3 represents husbands in general; naturally, the nichha-Guru indicates challenges with husband-figures. In Diana's nativity, due to Guru-yuti-Shani and Shani holding the lower degree = UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales represents husband-1 being a man who follows a strict travel and business itinerary. A prospective second husband is represented by the challenging nichha-Guru-3

Diana was strongly identified with his tour schedule, events and engagements (3) as well as his family (2) and his entitlements (5).

Guru rules the treasury-collecting, lineage preserving 2nd-from-Chandra and the emotionally motivated community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated,  friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra.

The final 16 years of her life were controlled by the Mahadasha of nichha-Guru. Treasuries were abundant, and a second marriage may have been imminent.

  • Zukra-Vrizabha * swakshetra * aesthetic of values preservation, sounds, history, containment of goods
  • Zukra-7 * pleasure of interpersonal relationships, enjoys contractual harmony * karako bhavo nashto

Zukra = yogakaraka from Chandra lagna. Zukra rules the property-owning the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra = bhava-7 contracts. Also Zukra rules the invisible, retreating, imaginative 12th-from-Chandra

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani is the kharesha

  • Shani-Makara * old hierarchies, pressured duty, old rules, pressured knees, imposed laws, must govern with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-3 * must message, communicate, explain; cautious, conventional cohort; chronic mental depression
  • Shani-yuti-Guru * resistance against expansion, doctrinal discipline, constrained growth

Shani-3 is frequently associated with mental pressure (depression) and mental restrictions

strict swakshetra Shani resides in and rules the privately regulated 12th-from-Chandra , enforcing privacy and isolation

Shani rules Chandra, suggesting that the mother-figure is withdrawn and sometimes punitive.

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

  • Rahu-Singha * nichha * mask of radiant dramatic celebrity
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * privilege via glamorous or unusual iconic, symbolic, representational, government, leadership, social status; seeks a special, important, regulating role in privileged socially visible ranks. Opportunistic leaders, ambitious bosses and government officials.
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * * amplified competition, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother

Kuja-yuti-Rahu-Singha-10 = 7th-from-Chandra forecasts a very dramatic marriage to a risk-taking spouse in a position of exceptionally high public visibility associated with royalty, celebrity, entertainments, creative arts, gaming, or politics.

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

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

BPL commentary:

For natives of Purvaphalguni * Yoni, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects 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.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Zosma

"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."
