BPL commentary:

For Azvini gentlewomen, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, cutters, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing inuitively.

Akaza-ruled Azvini ladies are independent minded. They are often athletic and exceptionally slender in physique. Psychologically competitive, they often appear nonchalant while quietly strengthening their forces. Azvakini tend to marry fascinating Rahu-influenced partners, if they marry at all.

Azvini tends to express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the witnessing, detached behaviors of Ketu. All pada are medically engaged; the 4th pada is particularly noted for its contributions to healing sciences. Azvini damsels are often found in medical environments such as pharmacies, hospitals, surgeries and clinics.

Akasha-born are blessed with a psychic (Ketu) agility to enter and exit the fleshbody. This skill brings them into roles such as medical intuitive and spiritual healer. Their meditative and clairsentient skills may be advanced. Yet Asva is typically modest regarding their healing powers, which they tend to attribute to Others such as deities, medical science, nature, or their partner.

Themes of personal freedom, unrestricted movement, and intuitive awareness may contextualize Azvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Azvini

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

"... she will possess a modest, clean, wholesome, and admirable character.

She will have an inherent respect and admiration for older people,

  • particularly her parents

but she will be independent of them

  • because of her ability to earn her own living and to make her own career .

She will have a very good figure

  • and even, white teeth.

A capable and self-sufficient person."

Candescent Chandra in bhava-6 typically suffers a pattern repeating rhythms of ailments and discomforts. The native's health condition is often due to emotional exhaustion from overwork in servitude to matters of the bhava which is Karkata. In Mrs. Bailey's case, Karkata is bhava-4 suggesting that her emotional exhaustion was traceable to her habit of taking care of people in places of settlement, especially in schools and homes, where she was emotionally engaged by the need to provide shelter and protection, parenting and transport. Much exacerbated by her nichha-Mangala-4.

Sibling 3rd-from-Chandra

Ketu-3 indicates some drifting away from siblings and cooperators in general. Her only sibling, a younger sister, was a surgeon as indicated via Vrischika-8. However due to a theological dispute, the two sisters did not communicate as adults.

7th-from Chandra-6 = bhava-12 Meena-Guru * priestly mate from a distant world

In rank-and-status-obsessed Edwardian Britain at the turn of the 20th century, Telepathy 1880-1949 Alice Bailey was a socially and financially privileged young adult. Her missionary zeal had brought her to the YMCA organization in British India. Her job was to preach a rigidly moralistic form of Protestant Christianity to British soldiers stationed there (her nichha-Shani-1, rigid public moralism, strict walls).

In 1907, one of those soldiers had impressed her with his piously religious character, and she decided to marry him. Within the British social pyramid, the caste of her chosen mate lay far below her own caste, at a distance which caused her mate to appear invisible (12) to her own people. The mate's lack of recognizable social identity (invisible, 12) created a major obstacle to Alice's desired union. But sympathetic arrangements were made by an aunt (Zukra-2 aunt, women of the family). This low-status fellow was sent to an American seminary to be educated as an Anglican priest, so that the status upgrade granted by priestly insignia could make him marriageable.

The first husband, an ordained Episcopal priest, was assigned to a series of rural California parishes. As an always-on-call clergyman's wife (her Chandra-Kanya-6, ministry of service) Alice performed as Bible-teacher with a uniquely accurate capacity for scriptural exegesis which won her many admirers. But notably, her husband was angered by her teaching (her own nichha-Mangala-4 domestic violence, and Chandra-Kanya servitude, accepting expansive drishti from Guru-12). By this husband-1, she bore three children in rapid succession (Guru), and lived in a state of material modesty, relieved slightly by payments from her own small trust allowance (her own Zukra-Vrishabha-2 treasures of the family-of-origin).

Expansive Guru-12 drishti to nichha-Mangala-4 PLUS bandesha-4 chandra-6

The first husband began to exhibit mental illness, and he beat her with increasing violence. After several years of torture beatings by this man (who simultaneously served as a respected priest and sermon-writer) Alice obtained a divorce with approval from the Anglican bishop, who had watched their domestic violence nightmare unfold.

Her husband the clergyman then "disappeared" (12) completely abandoning the family. As a desaparacido, he sent no funds despite court-ordered and Bishop-mandated child support. At the same time gochara Shani entered Mithunaya-3 2nd-from-2nd during world-war-1, and her overseas trust payments stopped. As a result, this high-caste British heiress entered a phase of extreme austerity and survival mentality (Shani contacting Ketu-Budha-Surya-3). The single mother of three dependent daughters, she went to work in a sardine-canning factory (3) where she was slowly, grudgingly accepted by co-workers (3) due to her quick hands (Budha-Mithunaya-3) and her staunch work ethic (Shani).

Second Marriage 2nd-from-Chandra-6 = Thula-7

After Alice had completed the very demanding phase as an impoverished single mother, and had raised her children mainly alone, the Guru Mahadasha began. Almost instantly she became involved in her life's work -- and most of the players who would dominate the second phase of her life drama were revealed. Guru rules

  • bhava-12 clairsentience

  • 10th-navamsha public roles

  • Rahu in dharmasthana-9 doctrine, theory, paradigm of belief

  • 7th-from-Chandra marriage-mates

Guru Mahadasha * age 37.3 until 53.3

Guru mahadasha changed her spiritual orientation dramatically. As Mrs. Bailey wrote autobiographically by midlife, "a rabid, orthodox Christian worker [had] become a well-known occult teacher."

Brihaspati is nothing if not abundant. According to Wikipedia, after age 35, Mrs. Alice Bateman Evans Bailey produced 24 published books on ancient wisdom, philosophy, religion, contemporary events, science, psychology, nationality, astrology, and healing."

14-Mar-1921 Marriage -2 * 2nd-from-Chandra-6 = Thula-7

Typically when ruler of 7 occupies 2, the more satisfying and significant marriage is indeed the second one.

Alice Bateman Evans' second marriage to an attorney and financial investor. American occult spiritual teacher, writer, and publisher, offered a significantly improved alliance. The second husband Foster Bailey was also a doctrinal-theoretical agent, but he was not a proponent of conventional dogma. Furthermore he was possessed of material assets and values which more closely matched her family of origin (Zukra-2).

Governing material expression of marriage and family lines, yuvatipathi and dhanapathi-values-treasuries Zukra-Vrishabha-2 resides in the philosophical 9th-from-Chandra. They were both workaholics. They bonded during a dramatic political struggle within their belief-based organization (Rahu-9). They served as clear, values-based voices (2) of clairsentient wisdom who helped to establish the esoteric cosmology of what would later be called The New Age.. Most importantly, she was happy in the union and was treated respectfully by her second spouse.

Das commentary re: Ketu in Bhava-3

  • BPL: applies especially to sibling relationships when Ketu occupies 3rd-from-Chandra

  • BPL: Ketu-3 is most influential when either Chandra or the radical lagna occupy a nakshatra of Ketu * Azwini, Magha, or Mula.

For Mrs. Bailey, Ketu rules the Azvini radical lagna * Ketu-Mithunaya

" ... enables you to conquer your enemies, become quarrelsome, and gain wealth.

  • You have few friends

  • constant pain in your hands

  • fear, anxiety, worry and instability.

Ketu can give much affluence, but it will not lend peace of mind.

  • You win over oppositions.

  • Useless and fruitless altercations and discussions.

Gets prosperity, shows smartness. Loss of friends.

Anxiety due to fear, misunderstanding and worry.

  • Affluent, sensual and sharp.

Disputes with enemies; separation of brothers; indifferent .

  • Skilled, living long, well-known.

  • Fortunate partner, tasty food,

  • fear of loss through friends.

    Uneasiness and fear from the community and family.

Adulterous with partners who are not really your friends.

Patient, brave and generous "
