Feminine Nativity

Mula * Nirriti

  • QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 98

BPL commentary:

For Mula nativities, the condition of limitless, surrendering, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, awareness of impermanence, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance from the civilizations of Al-Shaula

"... very little happiness through the life ...

  • due to the secret and destructive thoughts of the native

  • and her proud and stubborn nature.

To understand this is a help.

  • But a determined effort must be made to rectify it.

The fault lies entirely within herself,

  • her nature preventing her from being happy in any relationship.

She will have many love affairs and trouble through them.

If she marries, she will be unhappy

  • because of her inability to compromise

  • and her husband will die in seven years from the time of the marriage.

She has a weak constitution and her health will be uncertain,

  • due again to the destructive thoughts

  • which she harbors continually."

Mangala in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * drive toward doctrine, champion of a belief, pursuit of patronage, energized philosophical conquests, dominating father-figures

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

Guru controls the nativity:

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

* Harsha Yoga

Zukra rules Chandra * Zukra parivartamsha Chandra

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

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

Rahu in bhava-6 = Passion to be recognized as an servant and affiliate of the underclass. Over-reaching, pushing the envelope with irregular or forbidden outreach to foreigners (Rahu) and the destitute victims of poverty, exploitation, addiction, and disease.

uttama-Rahu in bhava-6 + uttama-Chandra-6 while Chandra parivartamsha Zukra-8 conditions of death (8)

powerful desire (Rahu) to minister (6) during conditions of death (8) in the service of the most degraded and needy beings (Rahu+ Chandra=6)

chalakaraka Rahu in bhava 6

  • ambition to be recognized and receive the privileges accorded to a clever adversary , a mischievous and devious servant , an adventurous and likely illegal druggist, a crafty litigator-accuser, or a great minister of service to the distrusted, diseased, dispossessed and afflicted.

  • Often signifies strategic advances via involvement with mafia, criminals, exploitation, and drugs. Rahu-6 is a difficult but ultimately successful placement for one committed to a life ministry of service.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

chidrakaraka Ketu in bhava 12

  • ambivalence toward prayer, dreams, spiritual retreat, disregard for conventions of the bedroom; barrier-free imagination, but often ignores guidance from the ancestors; generally unable to maintain privacy or attain sanctuary due to dispersal of the aura-protective shell

Whatever else can be said about Mother Teresa, she is clearly a leader and a planner. Raja Yoga : Logical uttama-Budha in bhava-10 + large-scale operations lagnesha Guru in bhava-10.

karmesha-10 = Budha in bhava-10 * bhadra yoga = public visibility, large-scale social organizers

tremendous energy in the field of religious teacher-preacher roles indicated by predominance of dynamic Simha-Mangala in bhava-9 yuti political, philosophical mulatrikona Simha-Surya in bhava-9

  • philosophy, temple religion, orthodox teachings, priesthood ritual preaching. Mother Teresa was unwavering even occasionally aggressive in her adherence to the Roman Catholic doctrine, its rituals, and its hierophants.

Affinity and ambition toward the poor, sick, and underclass = uttama-Rahu in bhava-6 in the needy-of-approval Rohini Chandra.

rogesha-6 Zukra in 8 parivartamsha the super-powerful uttama-Rahu + uttama-Chandra yoga provides a splendidly protective Harsha Yoga while uttama-Rahu-6 grants ambition to deal with the lowest, most humble, most disempowered persons in a gracious (Zukra) fashion.

randhresha-8 Chandra in 6 grants an extraordinary and powerful Sarala Yoga which when paired with the Harsha Yoga allows her to enter the most daunting, dangerous, toxic, deathly, polluted (socially and chemically)and viciously exploited situations without harm to self.

nichha- Shani bhava-5 = a lifetime of cardiac ailments, numerous heart-attacks and heart infections; also dislike of individual privilege (5) and conservative reactionary politics (Shani-5). Shani-5 is a common placement in the lives of the celibate religious who take vows within arch-conservative religious organization.

  • Engages in exotic or taboo-breaking ministries of service.

  • Rahu-Vrizabha rashi of Zukra whilst uttama-Chandra parivartamsha Zukra-Karkata in 8

Ketu in D-1 Vrizchika vyayabhava suggests that prayer (12) seems beheaded and often directionless, yet the native has no boundaries that would prevent the flow of spiritual instruction.

Thus while permanently dissatisfied with the quality of spiritual engagement, Mother Teresa was not blocked in any way from receiving spiritual directives and she did what she did - the most basic and fundamental sanctuary provision to those in process of leaving their bodies - with complete abandon. Scattered Ketu is strong as co-lord of Vrizchika = intense initiation and transformation (Vrischika) in the Ketu-ized context of destitution, homelessness, abandonment and despair.

Ketu-12-Vrizchika = intense, forcefully emerging, sudden, shocking, transformative changes especially the abrupt scattering of the life-force cohering energy at moment of cutting the silver cord

Chandra occupies Mesha 10th navamsha = a career in caretaking (Chandra) at the most basic fleshly level or at the level of simplest physical movements (Meza). She was an elementary school teacher for many years, supervising the fundamental (Chandra) education of children before entering the highest calling, which was to bathe (Chandra) the bodies (Mesha) of the dying while turning their faces to the Sun * uttama Mesha, Surya in swamsha + atmakaraka Guru-yuti-Ketu = destitution.

Mother Teresa's nativity suggests that she suffered from an exceptionally difficult relationship with a passionate (Rahu) but exploitive (6) set of parents (Chandra).

She may have experienced a continuous roller-coaster feeling of being spoiled (uttama-Chandra parivartamsha Zukra) by parents who wanted something from her, who were not unconditional in their love as parents should ideally be.

Rahu signals the presence of criminal exploitation, prostitution, drugs, Mafiosi, illegal activities, but also fraudulently earned wealth and apparent material success through these methods.

Her vocation could be said to have been sealed as early as the age of eight, during the Chandra-Zukra period. She had already tasted exploitation, contempt, and humiliation through scandal along with domination from a self-centered father * extreme karako bhavo nashto due to Simha-Surya + Mangala-9.

  • Having survived that awful childhood phase -- partly via protection of religious conviction inherent in dharmesha-9 Surya -- which in addition to a self-important father gives young Agnes gives a lifetime robust ego-membrane -- it was probably very clear to her what she needed to do.

  • Mother Teresa joined her life to the strictly ranked global hierarchy of Roman Catholic Church as an austerity-avowed nun when she was 17 -- after which she enforced a decision, never to see her mother or her sister again.

Like a smallpox survivor, her scars proved her vitality and she was no longer afraid of anything. That is perhaps the most striking feature of this fascinating nativity. She could be subject to the most horrific abuses and oppression but due to uttama-Rahu-6 she was simply not afraid. Faith protected her and she knew that fact as a core truth for the lifetime (9, extremely strong Surya) .

  • Ketu in 12 gives a certain inbuilt psychic homing device. Seeming to be a wanderer, one is actually traveling a purposeful path of pilgrimage and prayer. Slowly and circuitously, one returns to the land which provides the lifetime spiritual center. For Mother Teresa, that was India. In classic Ketu style, she followed her spiritual instincts to bring the religion of no-caste-barriers healing (Christianity) back to the land of her Roma ancestors...

(BPL note - and having experienced extreme and bitter disappointment, one has almost no choice but to forgive - and this is when the good stuff starts to happen!)
