Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mula * Nirriti


BPL commentary

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

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, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.


Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Although apparently tame personalities, Nirriti are emotionally comfortable with extreme risk. Often they go enthusiastically where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a surprising ability to convince others to grant them power - sometimes, absolute power. Mula's perception features a mix of ambivalence and apathy not only toward others but toward oneself. Liberated from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born under auspice of nakshatrapathi Alakmi preach their paradigm of belief without concern for material consequences. Thus freed from worry, they can be guided entirely by ideology with little-or-no pragmatic constraint.

Often involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti may be associated with shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having almost no fear of death, Mula engage in self-destructive behavior. Patriarchal sponsors and patronage may be essential to their success. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of religious preaching, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, ideological indoctrination, radical military, politics, and organized crime.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace , and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.


"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

Guru in bhava-3 * Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4 * Many Publications

In the space of one relatively brief Earthly incarnation, Chokyi Gyamtso Trungpa produced an amazing amount of literary translation, scriptural exegesis, and doctrinal reformulation.

Guru in bhava-3 * Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4 * Many Conferences and Seminars

The Vidyadhara gave over five thousand talks during conferences, seminars, and art gallery openings - to name just a few of his speaking venues. ,He participated in countless focused conversations and performances. A capable executive, he established at least 100 meditation centers, and engaged successfully with Western students of the historically Eastern philosophies.

Guru-yuti-Budha * Preaching

His mission was to liberate the Vajrayana traditions of Tibet from the great weight of cultural accrual, so that the teachings might not die even though the Chinese Army was aggressively destroying the monastic libraries and shrines that had held these dharma (reality) teachings for centuries.

Guru-yuti-Budha * Prolific Translator-Interpreter

Learning university English with remarkable alacrity, Trungpa became a hyper-productive translator-interpreter of the Vajrayana Tibetan-language literary canon. He chose collocative phrases and invented metaphors to build a bridge between the often opaque, scholastic, often extremely terse Tibetan prosody on the original side to the modern, superficial, materially denotative English on the other side. It looked impossible but he had his mission and he did it.

As commentators often note, Trungpa's supervisory guidance to his diligent translation committees has generated an inventory of translation-tables that are habitually applied to rendering of Vajrayana short-hand sayings into modern English. These standard English phrases are evident in usage of most dedicated Buddhist bridge translator-interpreters working today. In addition to talks, photographs, parties, and paintings, Trungpa was a productive individual writer and many of his titles are still top sellers in the philosophy category.


Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Makara-Draco * appreciation of authoritative status, enjoys social position, pleasures of structure, hierarchical arrangements
  • Zukra-2 * swabhava * pleasure of gathered assets, enjoys banked, collected equity; feminine-figures predominate the family, gracious storyteller, preserved, linguistic, voiced, historical values , appreciation of assets

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Meena * old dreams, pressured prayer, pressured feet, imposed sanctuary, proletarian sleep, elder diviners, ancient ancestor guides, must imagine guidance with scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-4 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious childhood foundations. One must remain in place, have to root, defend, reinforce the existing shelter. Cautious, conventional mother-figures. Tense childhood, educational fatigue, chronic household scarcity; strict boundaries; heavy legacy pressure to reinforce customary cultural boundaries. Resistance to new homes and active construction. Resentment toward changes in predictable routine. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles as parent, schoolteacher, police, border defense, fisher, farmer, ritual worship, temple maintenance, guardian of local infrastructure.
  • Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4

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

  • Rahu-Thula *craving for trade * mask of fairly bargained contracts; fascinated by arrangements, deals, term of agreement * seeks special importance via negotiation, via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) diplomacy, advising
  • Rahu in bhava-11 * passion for prizes, achievements * in Roguish Rahu's swabhava co-ruled with Sober Shani ,* the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual social goals and economic attainments. Desires an important, linkage role in social participation and financial networks. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious friends. Craves profit and gain. Rahu-11 thrives in culturally-mixed commodity-exchange systems. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a friend, a voluntary linker, an economic achiever, a relative of the father's people. Rahu-11 trespasses the cultural boundaries of friendship and community. Boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu typically enjoys material success in marketplace profits, revenue, earnings due to His social-participation genius.

dhana-yoga

Zukra-2 rules Rahu-11

Trungpa had 99 problems, but cashflow was not a concern.


Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Meza * dissociates from competitive dominance, incomplete nobility, empty arrival, dissolute conquest, not limited by blood or birth, ignores restriction on innovative movement
  • Ketu in classroom-5 * ambivalent toward entitlements, may have eccentric children, disregards limitations on financial speculation, displays fragmented or esoteric intelligence, dissolves the glamour of center-stage roles, disperses the romantic adoration. One abandons the usual political behaviors, ignores the conventional creativity, plays an incoherent game.
