Feminine Nativities

Azlesa * Naga

BPL commentary:

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

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commerical agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 94

"... this person is careless and unclean about herself and the manner in which she dresses.

  • She is not good-looking but indeed rather homely.

  • She is distinguished by some disfigurement on face or body

  • and is rather miserable and unhappy.

She has a secretive and rather bitter nature

  • and is somewhat harsh and unkind in her dealings with others,

  • where opportunity presents itself.

If she cultivated kindness and tact,

  • her shortcomings might be forgotten by those with whom she comes in contact.

But her attitude and appearance are not conducive to popularity."

BPL commentary Azlesa

Mr. Ponde often repeats his particular aversion to Azlesa nativities. Yet whether male or female, Azlesa "the leash" produces many of the world's great writers, poets, and lyricists.

As well, Azlesa often show mastery of Budha-type mental manipulation skills including verbal acuity in public speaking, literary publishing, business administration, and clever handcraft. When twisted under emotional (Chandra) pressure, this handiness could become Azlesa's notorious squeezing, choking, strangling, or extortion -- but rarely.

Azlesa are typically eccentric Budha-ruled creatures who are tightly focused on their information (choreography, lyrics, sequencing, plots, characters) ...

This feature of their mentality does not naturally parlay into unkindness or uncleanness ... only a rather grumpy intolerance for people and things irrelevant to their task.

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Distinctive features of nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka

dhanapati-2 Surya-1 governs Rahu-Shani-Kuja-Budha-gulika-mandi, suggesting a very complex situation regarding knowledge-treasuries, languages, and truthfulness

atmakaraka Surya-Karkata-1

Surya occupies philosophy Meena-Antya = swamsha

Helena Hahn's father was a notably wealthy officer of the Russian Empire. His treasury provided the funding for her global travel adventures, and when he died, his estate provided her a substantial inheritance

Surya rules the ambitious and over-reaching Rahu , energized and dramatized by the political theatre of Mangala. yuvatipathi-7 +randhresha-8 Shani = compromised in Simha rashi of enemy Suraja, + enemy Mangala + enemy Rahu. Karmic issues with historic truths, lineage legitimacy, veracity, financial well-being, family origins.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

popular with women despite occasional animosities lagnesha Chandra + Zukra-Kanya

close relationship to younger sister Chandra-3 + nichha-Zukra

addicted to cigarette smoking * Chandra+Zukra-Kanya-3 * Chandra-yuti-Zukra indulgent * bhava-3 lungs Kanya imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, exploitation of the lungs

constant indulgence in cigarette smoking as well as enchanting, snake-like hand movements = Chandra-3 + nichha-Zukra Chandra in Hasta = excellent for writers and manual skills, including legerdemain. Mme. Blavatsky was an accomplished pianist and wrote voluminous book-draft pages all by hand. Her s�ance trickery by sleight-of-hand was also notorious at the time. she became obese before her death from pneumonia and renal failure (Brights Disease) at age 59

her mother was a regionally famous literary author * Chandra-3 -Kanya + Zukra writing mother

a life of nearly constant movement * lagnesha Chandra-3 short journeys, constant peripatetic movement

rather plump Chandra in Hasta * comforted by soothing handwork * protectors of customary craft, skillful sheltering, manual cultivation, rhythmic management;

remembered as a 'spoiled' child indulged by a busy mother and raised by servants * Kanya-Chandra + Zukra-3 sibling relationship to servants * female servants Zukra-Kanya also substitute for mother Chandra-Kanya

her mother (Chandra) was a regionally well-known writer

  • according to wikipedia, Helena Fadeyeva [was] the author, under the pen-name "Zeneida Riva, of a dozen novels. Described ... as the "Russian George Sand", she died at the age of 28, when Helena was eleven."

bhava-3 = copying, esp. hand-copying; much question regarding the veracity of the journalism (3) = Vriddhipathi-11 nichha-Zukra profit via illicit pleasures

First marriage expectations for Chandra-3 = patron, father-figure, peer of her father's 23 years her senior.

  • Nichha-Guru, ruler of 7th-from-Chandra, occupies 5th-from-Chandra and 11th-from-9th, suggesting that while the first marriage was overconfident (nichha-Guru) and unsustainable, there were many benefits including her new surname and continued financial patronage. Compounded by rogapathi-6 Guru residing in bhava-7.

Second marriage expectations for Chandra-3

  • Bhava-4 representing the second marriage is ruled by nichha-Zukra-3 suggesting a brief and unsustainable union, typically with a parental person or comfortably culturally rooted mate. Zukra ruler of 4 occupies 12th-from-4th which indicates an attempt to establish security (4) but the distrust (nichha-Zukra) in the relationship is exceptionally weakening and the alliance fades into invisibility of a distant land. Her second husband, after a few months, returned to distant Tblisi Georgia. Zukra rules 4 and 11 = 8th-from-4th. A salient benefit was her new USA passport. Compounded by the 12th-from dissolution implied by ruler of bhava-2 public-view of 2nd marriage ruled by Surya-1.

Third marriage expectations for Chandra-3

  • Although no third marriage ceremony was publicly recorded, Yelena Hahn cohabited with the attorney Olcott for some years before her decease. 9th-from-Chandra-3 = bhava-11 denoting voluntary friendship and economic gains.

A remarkable pattern that strongly suggests a philosophical and clairsentient Writer

Azlesa navamsha. Physically straightforward yet psychically quite open. Powerful channeler of the snake-like Rahu Kundalini energy. Needs constant peripatetic movement.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

paternal inheritance * dharmapati Guru-in 11th from 9th, gain from father

Guru rules 10th navamsha = profession

nichha rogesha-6 +dharmesha-9 Guru in marriage-and-contracts7 = career (7) based on a great deal (Guru) of advice and guidance from a wide variety of sources, and generally due to nichha qualities the downfall was "spiritual materialism".

First marriage both impulsive and unsuitable due to yuvatipathi-7 Shani-2 yuti Rahu. Helena's mother had also married at 16; Helena born when mom was 17. Shani in shad-ashtaka 6-8 from His own bhava-7. Marriages difficult due to obligatory cycles of transformative change.

lifetime marked by vigorous applause, astounding depictions of lineage history, along with accusations of legerdemain and fraud * Rahu + Shani-yuti-Mangala + Budha = values, truth, magic

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

  • Rahu-Singha * nichha * craving for attention * mask of radiant, unique, dramatic celebrity; fascinated by entitlement, brilliant gambling and games; * seeks special importance via politicized, risky speculation

Speech patterns

rapid speech with a mixture of language accents was, according to some in her audience, the source of occasional incoherence due to the speed of her speech. In some activities (esp of her early seance years) she claimed the interference of malefic spirits in her speech. Rahu 2

Ketu-Kumbha-8 = philosophy influenced by occult (8)teachings that arrive via subtle electrical networks.

Madame Blavatsky was known for her psychic capabilities, and her livelihood was gained partly from channeling spirit-guides and giving s�ances in the age of 19th century Spiritualism

worldwide wanderings Ketu-8

psychically channeled by writing (lagnesha Chandra-3) the oracular testimony of mysterious hidden sources called 'Great Masters' (Ketu-8)

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."
