Feminine Nativities

Azwini * Dasra

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events 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 intuitively.

Innovating Observer

Akaza-ruled Azvini ladies are independent minded. Nasatya-born ladies are often athletic. They may practice various methods for maintaining an exceptionally slender physique. Psychologically competitive, feminine Ashvayujau often appear nonchalant while quietly marshalling their militant 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 can be interested in medicine, but the 4th pada are nearly always midwives, nurses, physicians, dentists, or other recognized healing roles. Azvini damsels are often found in medical environments such as pharmacies, hospitals, surgeries, clinics, and birth centers.

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."

StepMother forces sale of MBE's son

Mary Baker Eddy was widowed in her first marriage, and following the death of her husband-1 she returned to her father's home. Her son was unwanted by her father's second wife. The stepmother is indicated by Ketu-Singha * Ketu in classroom-5 residing in Mary's emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra.

The stepmother disliked single-mother widowed Mary and would not tolerate Mary's child in her home. Under the law of the time, Mary's father legally owned both his dependent adult daughter and his daughter's child.

By the father's legal right to dispose of his property, Mary's child was then lawfully taken from Mary and sold by the father into bondage with a farm family who moved a thousand miles away. There was no contact (Ketu emptiness) until Child was Restored to her after 30 years (full Shani cycle)

all that is loveable and gracious,

fill all your thoughts with these things."
