Masculine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary:

For natives of Purvaphalguni * Yoni, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Zosma

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politicss, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. They are happiest when playing music, dancing, or performing a choreographed sport for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they enjoy political campaigns, gambling and games, speculative finance, bargaining toward a political agreement, and the drama of romantic relationships. Political success depends upon lagnesha Surya.

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

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

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.*

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."

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Despite Mangala's beneficial yogakaraka effects for patriotic (4)and philosophical (9) purposes, Nichha-Kuja-12 in 7th-from-Chandra-6 poses a daunting catalytic challenge in the realm of sexual, marital, and contractual relationships
