Feminine Nativity

Krittika * Pleyades

BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of the Pleyades.

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

"... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please."

Mary Baker Eddy endured a series of early life restrictions and pains including an abusive father, widowhood, marital abandonment, kidnapping of her child who was sold to distant farm family. Excruciating illnesses pressured her into bedridden status. These relentless limitations, refusals, and delays shaped a character which initially accepted her low rank in social class structures yet determined to earn (Shani) respect via sacred teachings (9) and institutional leadership (10)

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

  • Rahu-Kumbha (swakshetra)* craving for community * mask of lawfully interlinked systems; fascinated by networks * seeks special importance via social participation programs

Exciting, opportunistic leaders, ambitious bosses and government officials. Thrives in culturally-mixed legislative, executive settings. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a boss, an authority-figure, a decision-maker, a legislator, a tyrant. Bhava-10 social authority = a highly successful environment for boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu.

privilege via economic activity via social network

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 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 law of the day. By the father's legal right to dispose of his property (Ketu in 2nd-from-4th 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. Surya ruler of 5 located in the dissolving, invisible 12th-from-5th bhava-4. There was no contact (Ketu emptiness) until Child was Restored to her after 30 years (Shani cycle)

child stolen from her and sold to farmers who then moved far distant, reunited 30 years later

Mangala drishti and Guru drishti upon Ketu in Bhava-5* retrospectively (and not completely authoritatively) diagnosed with psychotic personality disorder (PPD)

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."
