Feminine Nativity


  • Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

BPL commentary: For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of Budha considerably affects the outcome

"...independent self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

  • If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family, she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

  • She is careful and canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life,

  • occupy a very influential position

  • and be greatly respected."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

Surya in bhava-3


Chandra in Kanya

The impact of her iconic lifetime upon the western Earth-world has been remarkable. Jehan d'Arc is remembered and celebrated by Roman Catholics worldwide as a skillful fighter (Kuja-10) and a saint (Ketu-10) even now 600 years after being burned at the stake for the crime of heresy.

Kuja-yuti-Ketu in tenth D-1, tenth D-9 and second D-10 * reputation for fighting (Kuja) and sainthood (Ketu)

Yet the royal lagnesha Mangala-Singha-10 is so highly spiritualized by dispersing, surrendering Ketu that her ambivalence about holding royal power would have in any case dissipated her external authority.

Kuja-lagnesha also rules 6 for the Vrizchika nativity, which is often an issue for accused Vrizchika women. She is especially held as an icon for women who choose to fight rather than yield. Yet her story is also presented as a cautionary tale, since life was short and death was presumably painful.

Rogesha Kuja-yuti-Ketu suggests that the criminal accusation lacked integrity.

Budha in bhava-2 * Budha-Dhanuzya parivartamsha Guru-Kanya* Guru in bhava-11

Suggesting a relatively early departure from the Earthly vale, Budha randhresha-8 parivartamsha Guru maraka-2 and Budha drishti amplified by Rahu drishti into 8 with no other longevity drishti from any other graha. The nativity is so striking that it can be said, had she lived, Jehan d'Arc would have been a fertile queen, recognized for her beauty due to Zukra-Makara, and blessed with an exceptional level of financial well-being due to the parivartamsha of rulers of 2-and-11.


Guru-yuti-Chandra * Guru in bhava-11 parivartamsha Budha in bhava-2 * Budha-Dhanuzya

Also contributing to her status as a highly visible symbol of spiritual wisdom (including the concept of eternal life-9 paired with fleshdeath-2) = Guru-atmakaraka yuti dharmesha-9 Chandra.

Zukra in bhava-3 * Zukra-Makara

Shani-Vrizabha * Shani in bhava-7 * dig-bala parivartamsha Zukra-Makara * Zukra in bhava-3

The issues of legitimacy of contracts and treaties is represented by Shani in bhava-7 * dig-bala as bandhesha-4 while Shani is located in 4th-from-4th Vrishabha values while Shani casts drishti again into bhava-4. Shani provides a staunch and rigidly parochial viewpoint regarding the fairness and trustworthiness of promises, trusts and agreements which maintain the social order (Shani).

Shani in 9th-from-Chandra suggests the oppressive, punitive impact of the institutional priesthood and its dogma.


Rahu-4 suggests a passion for the protection of the homeland and its customary rulers.
