Masculine Nativity


  • Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 82

BPL commentary: For Magha nativities, the condition of Ketu considerably affects the outcome

Yeats wrote, "I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because, like Spinoza 's God, it won't love us in return."

"A proud but not an arrogant nature

  • poised, self-contained and dignified.

This man will command respect

  • because of his quiet dignity of manner and bearing.

His position in his community will be secure

  • and his financial standing sound.

His weakness, however, is his susceptibility to the blandishments of the opposite sex.

He must avoid entanglements

  • which might lead to a loss of dignity,

  • since, to this man, such a loss would be a tragedy."

Distinctive Features of the Nativity

QUOTATIONS from William Butler Yeats

Freedom in general may be defined as the absence of obstacles to the realization of desires.*

It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age; but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and this dragon is religion.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly.

Liberty is the right to do what I like; license, the right to do what you like.*
