Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttara-azadha * Vaizva

BPL commentary

For Uttara-azadha births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. Nakshatrapathi Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.

Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic Surya. From the Makara lagna, nakshatrapathi Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral (Shani). Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet their purpose is visionary (Surya). Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. Their emotional stability in partnership arises from Chandra = yuvathipathi.

Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttara-azadha.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

Distinctive features of the Nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Kumbha * Arka * the radiator * radio
  • Surya in bhava-2 * center of values, intelligence for storage, conservation, containment, values; focus on treasuries, banking entitlements, bright face-speech-song, eye on capitalization-banking, * father = center of family* sparkling center of the treasury-drama
  • Shani-8 parivartamsha Surya-2

SteinerRudolf_midlife.jpgSurya in 7th-from-Chandra shows the scientifically oriented, systematic, willful, elder, and wealth-oriented life-partner-1. Despite her valuable financial subsidies to Steiner's lifestyle, wife-1 remained independent of the squabbling intrigues of Steiner's community.

Many adherents of Steiner's teachings did not acknowledge that Steiner had a first marriage 1899-1911. They recognized only his more public second marriage from 1914.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Simha * comforted by rhythmic creative display
  • Chandra in Purvaphalguni * comforted by sparkling luxury * protectors of musical entertainments, radiant style, brilliant beauty
  • Chandra in classroom-8 * comfort in crisis * familiar with catastrophic events * needs to feel the pulse of repeating identity transformation * soothed by secrecy * accustomed to regular routines of upheaval * seeks the deep rhythm of initiations * acculturated to exploratory occult sensitivities * need for unsettling discoveries * nourished by self-reinvention * emotionally attuned to patterns of undulating shakti-shocks
  • Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * Emotionally constricted * pressured by punitive authority figures * sensitive to class boundaries * soothed by structure * needs rigid routines * heavy maternal workload * comfortable with elders * familiar with strict hierarchies * mother emotionally limited * needs rules * feels like a worker


  • Lifepartnership-1 = bhava-2
  • Steiner married twice. His first wife was elder to him (Zukra-Makara). She had been and continued to be his landlady, and also she served as his financial supporter, funding his literary magazine and providing assets such as food (2).

2nd-from 7th-from-Chandra-8

  • Lifepartnership-2 = bhava-9
  • After their 1911 divorce, followed by Eunicke's decease, Steiner remarried in 1914 to a literary colleague, Marie von Sivers
  • After RS's own decease, Mrs. von Sivers-Steiner continued to develop his writings, drawings, and lecture notes, making these philosophical assets available worldwide (9).

Somana-yuti-Shani nishturabhashi yoga in bhava-8 * restrictive, conditional mother who remains largely hidden (8)

Steiner did not involve his mother in his adult life. She was a servant on an estate who flaunted the rules of the lord of the manor when she married Steiner's father. As punishment (Shani) Steiner's young parents were forced to leave their roots and change their identity (8). Clearly such a brilliant world healer would have had a mother with transformative intuitions, but her role necessarily remained veiled

Parental Trauma

Typically, nishturabshi yoga indicates a mother who has been traumatized in her own life and who responds to the child's need for affectionate approval with a harshly punitive, materialistic (Shani) survival fear.

This yoga often signals a forbidding, stiff mother who prioritizes social protocol and public decorum. Mom is generally unable to provide unconditional affection, and the child may receive nurture only by meeting performance standards such as good grades in school, obedient behavior, or achievement of social rank. Having been accused of impropriety, his parents may have been extra-strict to ensure that their fragile dignity would not be violated by anyone ever again, including their children. In his autobiography, RS stated that he spent a frugal childhood in the house with his parents and siblings, existing there but not much participating. He writes extensively about his father's character and kindness. Yet, RS mentions his mother only as the preparer of daily meals.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Ruchaka Yoga

  • Mangala-Meza * moolatrikona 0-18 deg. * vigorous pursuit of championship * dynamic, competitive winner * proactive innovation, first-arrival; push toward conquest
  • Mangala in bhava-4 * drives local transport * champion of building and vehicle production *digging, drilling, mining, pushing into the underground * construction mechanic * erecting foundations * energized domestic conquests * engineering approach toward lands and properties * invigorating defensive action * competitive household dynamics * farm tillage, plowing, plunder * navy + marine defense * pushy parents * physical action, sporting challenge, or fighting within the childhood home

Mangala in bhava-4 * Ruchaka Yoga * dynamic defensive-protective movement

Kuja bandhesha occupies 8th-from-4th, suggesting frequent house-shift in pursuit of transformative opportunity. Also, considerable and persistent upheaval (8) in the large-scale social progressive assemblies for which he served as a teacher (4)

ruler of 4 occupies 8th-from-4th often signals one who leaves the birthplace in search of opportunity to accomplish goals (11) typically economic objectives but also social goals

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

  • Budha-Meena * nichha * intuitive communications * articulation of private spiritual guidance * imaginative pronouncements * explains the procedure for reading the astral patterns * abstract conversations * symbolic information * foggy thinking * psychic instructions *. messages about astral visions * hands-arms-shoulders send dreamlike gestures
  • Budha in bhava-3 * narrative of cohort, siblings, announcements * discusses  commerce, management, reporting, administration,  describer of detailed information, explainer of publication, delivers instructions for books, scripts, lyrics, media-messaging, talks about communications, sales, marketing, advertising, manufacturing, process, collaboration, teamwork

Budha-Meena * nichha-3= intuitive interpretation-translation. speaking (not always logically) upon worldly and otherworldly topics of meditation-mentality, activities within sanctuary (Meena), narratives of astral, spiritual guidance and philosophical doctrine.

Budha-Meena * nichha = blessed by inclusive ray of Guru also grants ability to discuss impolite topics such as severe social conflict, racism, exploitation, and disease.

Bantering Budha in bhava-3 receiving the expansive philosophical drishti of uttama-Guru-7 indicating that what Steiner had to say was abundantly generous as a paradigm of higher belief (Guru). Yet due to nichha-Budha-3 his message is generally not effectively explained and generally not well understood.

Ultimately Steiner is best known for his techniques of non-verbal (astral) communication such as music, images, and dreams' in particular, communication with the deceased and ability to interpret signals emitting from astral conditions (Meena). These signals are non-linear and interpreting them requires a certain gift of autism.

Steiner divorced his first wife in 1911 during Shani-Budha bhukti (Budha rules 6-divorce and 6 contains Ketu). She died soon afterward (Budha rules 12th-from-7th). He conducted a quiet but public widowhood, waiting until a socially respectable mourning bhukti had expired.

Steiner re-married with Ms. von Sievers in 1914 during * Rahu-Zukra bhukti* samchara Rahu-Ketu via Kumbha-Simha contact Chandra-Shani

In 1912 during Rahu-Budha bhukti, Steiner quickly broke relations (6) with the German Theosophical Society, taking a majority of German-speaking adherents with him.

Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner wrote specific governance policy recommendations for reforming culture and creating social legislation. He wrote the popular book Social Renewal during the catastrophic collapse of the German economy after WW-1. The Nazi government however resented its suggestions and Steiner became a target.

Uttama-Guru-7 rules karakamsha Meena-3 publications, lectures

Guru-Karkata * uttama owns bhava-3 containing nichha-Budha and Guru-7-uttama indicates many partners who hold exalted philosophical view.

The great majority of Knowledge of Higher Worlds 1861-1925 Rudolf Steiner's books are transcripts of his lectures which were carefully written, edited, and published by his devotees. Steiner wrote very little himself.

Uttama-Guru rules Rahu in the 10th navamsha Dhanushya. Indicates large-scale disruption of orthodoxy (Rahu) * expanded (Guru) understanding of the Divine Presence in Earth

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment; graciously feminine qualities of the appearance, enjoys athletic style of balancing, vigorous physical adjustments, appreciation of new birth * identified with beauty, equity, and fairness

Zukra-Makara-Draco in a masculine nativity often indicates first wife elder. Lifepartner-1 his senior.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Simbha (challenging placement) * heavy old entitlements * the weight of old royal drama * obliged to conform to center-stage flamboyant divas * vital energy compression stress zone = heart-spine * must accept pragmatic social restrictions upon creative self-expression * strictly imposed rules governing political affairs * must apply socially required restrictions upon genius, games, drama, children, romance * must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian entertainments * must work with slow, elderly political game-players * must continue to conduct lawful entitlement ceremonies despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious partnerships. One must balance and re-balance. Cautious, conventional relationships. Tense negotiations. Chronic responsibilities toward the spouse; compression of the visible genitalia; heavy legacy pressure against freely chosen contracts.  Bargaining fatigue. Resistance to new arrangements.

  • Shani-8 parivartamsha Surya-2

Shani lagnesha

Shani rules 6th-from-Chandra

Shani-Simha = karma of politics; in bhava-8 parivartamsha Surya-2 = strong resistance to occult transformation, yet must speak (Surya-2) on the occult topics that one would normally (Shani) prefer to keep quiet

Dhanuzya Rahu-12 drishti to Shani-8 * constant provocation to involve in catastrophic politics both internationally and within the organization of believers

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

  • Rahu-Dhanuzya * shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of fatherly generosity * extraordinary theory * unusual approach to higher truth * mask of global humanistic belief * fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous patronage * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of professorship, guidance, proselytism, guru-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-12 * passion for privacy * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual retreat environments, withdrawal, sanctuary; desires an important, invisible role in invisibility, intuitive guidance, private prayer, isolation, enclosures, research laboratories and libraries, Other-Worlds. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious ancestor guides. Thrives in culturally-mixed monasteries, spiritual sanctuaries, hospitals, prisons, rehab centers, and other secluded spaces. Rahu-12 trespasses the cultural boundaries of dreamwork, imagination, sanctuary, and sleep. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a dream-interpreter, an ancestor spirit-guide, a magician from distant lands.

Rahu occupies 10th navamsha Dhanuzya

inflammatory Rahu drishti into Mangala-4 + Ketu-6 + Shani-Chandra-8

Steiner is often seen as a martyr of the viciously dehumanizing Nazi regime. His opposition to the evils of the Orion (Ayran) empire arose clearly at the beginning of his Rahu Mahadasha age 42 and Steiner persisted in denouncing the evil ones throughout the 18 years of Rahu.

Over-reaching Rahu Dhanushya-12 in 6/8 from risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler is super-expanded via uttama-Guru in bhava-7 and owing to the imbalance from ruler Brihaspati this Rahu is prone to engage in ideological conflict with foreign agents.

The results of Risk-rewarding Rahu's overextension from philosophy (Dhanuzya) into politics (Simha-8) may be philosophically (Guru) beneficial. Yet Rahu Dhanushya in the unbalanced shad-ashtaka 6/8 angle from His Professor Guru caused Steiner to take the risk of speaking out against injustice.

By the onset of Guru Mahadasha, his age 60, Steiner had been working against the Orion forces for nearly 20 years and was psychically exhausted (Rahu-12). Only a few years later, his fleshbody expired.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversations, incomplete message, empty instructions, dissolute signals, not limited by commerce, ignores restriction on communication, applies explanatory gestures to the misty abyss, applies explanatory gestures to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial)* absentee enemies, disregards criminal boundaries, dissolves the medications, ambivalent toward the power of exploitation, disinterested in disagreement, irrelevance of accusations. One walks away from sickness, abandons the usual suffering behaviors, ignores the conventional conflicts, delivers incoherent arguments.

During Rahu-Ketu bhukti in 1913, there was a major schism (Ketu) in the Theosophical Society that caused widespread dispersal of the previously unified European membership. After realizing that the rift (Ketu) cannot be mended, Steiner takes most of the German-speaking members with him into a new Anthroposophy sect (Ketu sectioning, separations).
