BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of pitrikaraka Professor Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians celebrities, dramatists, game-players, and persons of brilliant entitlement are especially influential.

Guidance from Denebola.

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

Extraordinary Pressure at the time of Suicide

  • Yet she experienced a series of catastrophic mental upheavals leading to suicide.
  • Her suspected bi-polar disorder (in modern parlance; then called manic-depression) was kept under cover (8) from her friends and family. The extreme mood swings and the almost tangible presence of her tortured mind was often recorded in her private writings (Mangala-3).
  • However Rahu ambitiously generated a successful the public camouflage, and few knew of its extreme sorrow and frustration. In the event of her drowning death, many expressed shock and surprise (8).

  • lagnesha-1 Saturn return to her extremely weak nichha-Shani-8 + Chandra = Nishturabashi Yoga = permanent sade sati)

~~Virginia Woolf

"The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages."

The Waves, published 1931 "And in me too the wave rises. It swells; it arches its back. I am aware once more of a new desire, something rising beneath me like the proud horse whose rider first spurs and then pulls him back.

What enemy do we now perceive advancing against us, you whom I ride now, as we stand pawing this stretch of pavement? It is death.

Death is the enemy.

It is death against whom I ride with my spear couched and my hair flying back like a young man's, like Percival's, when he galloped in India. I strike spurs into my horse.

Against you I will fling myself, unvanquished and unyielding, O Death!"
