BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni 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 Uttora, 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.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"a proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."


Charles Baudelaire in 1864, age 43

Wonderfully concise Excerpt from the biographers at,_Charles

"French poet tormented by religion and the struggle between good and evil in man, suffused with his deeply Catholic sense of sin and remorse. His "Flowers of Evil" was condemned as immoral in 1857, confiscated by authorities for offending public morals. He was a Catholic and a Satanist, a debauchee and mystic, cynical sensualist and yearner for purity. Sexually morbid and a sadist, he sought the unbathed women "of the streets."

In his extraordinarily complicated life, he had a suffocatingly intimate relationship with his bewildered mother , who lovingly nurtured and then callously ignored his lifelong dependence on her which reached classically Oedipal proportions. He was the son of a lapsed Catholic priest , a ... cultured epicurean who passed onto his son his love of art. After his dad died in 1827, his mom married Col. Jacques Aupicki, a dour career diplomat who, disgusted by his high-strung stepson's eccentricities, tried to impose military standards of discipline and conduct, values that Baudelaire disavowed in a rebellion that lasted the rest of his life.

By the time he came into his inheritance from his birth father in 1842, he was already exorbitantly precocious and foppish, squandering over a half of his considerable fortune in 18 months. His taste ran to elegant fashion , and he would have gone through the entire amount had not his stepfather brought the spending spree to a halt with legal intervention. Much to his humiliation, Baudelaire was then forced to petition an attorney for his funds, cap in hand, living on a meager monthly allowance.

His spending spree was the only time in his short and miserable life that he was ever without financial stress. His writings were not only scandalous , but paid poorly, and he once remarked that his income for years was the equivalent of the price of two cigars a day.

He lived in dilapidated fleabag hotels, eking out a precarious existence as a poet, art critic and translator of Edgar Allan Poe. He changed his address in Paris about 30 times during his adult life, once moving six times in a single month in 1885, seeking to evade creditors.

Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs du Mal," came out in 1857, unleashing a fire storm of criticism and nearly a century of acrimonious litigation.

Addicted to ether capsules and laudanum (opium), he sought to numb himself to the ravaging effects of syphilis , contacted in the Paris Latin Quarter as a young man. He was a cynical voluptuary, an amoral aesthete who shocked his friends by dying his hair green and sprinkling his conversation with non sequiturs. He referred to"the intoxicating pleasure of displeasing, "as he refused any semblance of conventionality but formed a lifelong liaison with Jeanne Duval, the "Black Venus" of his "Fleurs,"a mixed-race drug-addicted prostitute.

The first signs of insanity appeared in 1862. In his final years his skin was discolored and his joints affected. He collapsed in March 1866 while admiring an architectural point of beauty with friends in Belgium. He returned to Paris in a private railroad car some months later and over the next 12 months suffered a slow death from syphilis (GPI). By early 1867 he scarcely remembered his own name; by April he had lost his will to live and on 8/31/1867, he died in his mother's arms in Paris."

His father was 34 years elder to his mother. Dad had compounded a significant financial estate before he died, and little Charles was bequeathed a large financial inheritance.

When little Charles was seven years old his mother remarried a strict disciplinarian retired military officer . = Shani transit to bhava 10 Mithunaya + Sade-Sati + Shani drishti to 7-relationship, equity, fairness. His step-father was accounted to have been the person who prevented Baudelaire from squandering his paternal inheritance (which Charles spent frivolously and wildly in his 22nd year) by intervening through the lawcourts. Baudelaire wrote that he despised his stepfather for his disciplining, constraining ways, and for taking his mother's attentions. However most observers recognized that his stepfather was a force of balance (Zukra) and order (Shani) who acted in a paternally responsible fashion in regard to the inheritance money (2-Thula treasury ruled by luxurious uttama-Zukra-7 in 6th-from-2 accusations, conflict)

Mom was socially well-placed following her first marriage to a wealthy civil servant 34-years her elder, then remarriage to a pensioned retired military commander. She represented the social ordering influence in Baudelaire's life, and in the Paris of the 1840-50's she was an icon of bourgeois respectability. Although perhaps not quite, since his Chandra in Arudra suggests mom's wild side. Mom cared for him without interruption , and accepted her only child in whole, despite his political, literary, and sexual antics. He died in mom's arms, age 46.
