Feminine Nativities

Magha * Pitriya

BPL commentary:

For Magha feminine nativities, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, pilgrims, ghosts, wanderers, observers, witnesses, awareness of impermanence, freedom from conventions, disregard for consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Guided by the patrons of Regulus

Magha ladies often have a cause for which they are willing to sacrifice their own interests. Often there is some acute severance or separation which may be repaired after a long time. Fervently spiritual yet often unconventional in their behavior, Makha ladies can be socially eccentric due to their special combination of Ketu's witness perspective with Surya's absolute certainty of purpose.

Intensely romantic, disregarding of political consequences, and dramatic in their devotion to the ideal, the feminine Agha are typically independent actors and capable of living separately if circumstances demand it. She is often the only woman in a patriarchal (pitri) environment. Her qualities of detachment and her uniquely authentic intelligence may provoke criticism from more pedestrian judges.

Much depends on the characteristics of Ketu in the nativity.

Themes of separation, disconnection, abandonment, alienation, escape, wandering, annihilation, surrender, and liberation may contextualize Agha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Magha
