Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Arudra - Orion * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra - Orion births of masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .

Exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from Orion. Their purpose is to communicate the passionate animal vitality via stormy, turbulent, swaying, exciting gesture and signal.

Passionately Communicative

Rahu-ruled Arudra - Orion fellows are often found in muscular, passionate, body-intensive roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage. Stage performers of high excellence, Arudra - Orion gentlemen are often admired for their pulsing sensuality and animal magnetism.

Thiruvaathira chaps may be gifted in all varieties of manual labor, handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of beckoning, seductive gesture [Budha].

Themes of stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra - Orion's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra - Orion.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81.

"Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."
