Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Mriga-zirshana births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Mangala-ruled Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, attack, and provoke.

Verbally Incisive and Commanding

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. Agrahayani-born are often found in politics, manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are often accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha - Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Those born in pada 1-2 pursue artistic communications, legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded enclosures, such as research laboratories, private rooms, or the imagination. They have special gifts for fantasy, imagery, and distant worlds. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension of doing-vs-talking. Pada 3-4 are profit-driven and not averse to theft or breaking contracts for advantage. They have a special gift for marketplace systems. Friends (11) and enemies (6) have equal influence. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mrigazirshana-Invaka.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

African-American dad + a Thai-American mom + all-American work ethic. TW was able to smile his way through the process of disrupting (Rahu) foundational racial norms.

SUPER RAHU = Rahu in bhava-6 +++ Rahu-uttamsha-10th-navamsha

Big Rise, Big Fall, and Again = 2009 until 2019

Nov-2009 begin gochara Rahu Enters Dhanuzya + contact Surya-Dhanuzya in 8-exposure

TW entered long-lasting scandal phase involving sexual incontinence, drugs, and weapons. Criminal accusations flared throughout Surya Mahadasha 2009-2018, while gochara Rahu visited 8-9-10-11-12-1-2,

Nov-2009 during Surya-Surya swabhukti,

Rahu amplified a tabloid sex scandal involving a reported 120 women, an array of drugs, and a weapons habit. TW was criticized. He underwent rehabilitation. His wife divorced him. Observers said TW was just doing what his ex-military dad (Surya) had always done.

Typical of Rahu, TW's fabulous superman reputation collapsed almost overnight. Hungering (Rahu) for socially admired role-models of color (Rahu), TW's legions of fans, and indeed the nation, felt betrayed by his vulgarities Rahu in bhava-6. During the 18 months of gochara Rahu contact Surya-8, TW's secret world of prostitution and addiction was shockingly exposed.

Revenues continue

Despite the deluge of negative publicity, TW had a huge worshipful fan base (Guru-11-Meena) and iconic status in the sports world. He did not lose all of his lucrative product endorsement contracts. TW's spectacular earnings continued even after the public disgrace.

Identity Change

An astounding story of many prostitutes, weapons, drugs, and sex escapades changed TW's image from wholesome American Black Buddhist to a secretive out-of-control addict. Many believed TW's career was finished due to the extreme immorality of his conduct. Zukra-yuti-Chandra-nichha

Rahu in bhava-6. No Jail

TW never went to jail. He paid a few small fines. Product endorsements continued. Similar to Rev. Billy Graham's request for forgiveness after racist disgrace, TW accepted public responsibility for his actions, agreed to a divorce, and went to rehab.

He laid low while enduring numerous surgeries during a brutal Sade-Sati produced many spinal surgeries and he missed many competitions.

Nine years later, 13-Apr-2019 won the Masters Tournament

Nine years (Rahu cycle) after the first scandal broke, TW returned triumphantly to high-profile public life by winning a prestige trophy. Although lesser beings might have been jailed or de-professionalized, TW simply laid low with no severe consequences, waiting for the comeback Rahu in bhava-6.

The public was kept apprised of his painful surgeries, which may have been perceived as a sort of atonement. Eventually he resurfaced with a spectacular championship golf win, and was happily re-embraced by the public in 2019.

Renegade Rahu matures = age 48.

Roguish Rahu holds a strong bala. Rahu in bhava-6 ++ Rahu-Urisha-10th navamsha, revealing the underlying expectation of luxurious associations of wealth, beauty, and public visibility

Announced during Surya-Chandra bhukti (Chandra rules 3 announcements)

  • (wikipedia quote) "In July 2010, Forbes announced Tiger Woods as the richest sportsman in the world earning a reported $105m according to them and $90.5m according to Sports Illustrated."

In the years following his catastrophic fall from grace TW's earnings dropped from a figure approaching 1-billion (before expenses) to a figure reported to be in the neighborhood of 50-million-USD annually.

A drop from a classically Rahu-exorbitant peak perhaps -- but more of a market correction -- and not a devastating collapse.

Risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler lagnesha Zukra in 2nd-from-Rahu provides a continuous financial stream, despite scandal or other interruption of public esteem.

Golfing athletic style, According to Wikipedia :

"Despite his power advantage, Woods has always focused on developing an excellent all-around game. Although in recent years he has typically been near the bottom of the Tour rankings in driving accuracy, his iron play is generally accurate, his recovery and bunker play is very strong, and his putting (especially under pressure) is possibly his greatest asset.

He is largely responsible for a shift to higher standards of athleticism amongst professional golfers, and is known for putting in more hours of practice than most."

"While Woods is considered one of the most charismatic figures in golfing history, his approach is, at its core, cautious. He aims for consistency. Although he is better than any other Tour player when he is in top form, his dominance comes not from regularly posting extremely low rounds, but instead from avoiding bad rounds.

He plays fewer tournaments than most professionals (15 - 21 per year, compared to the typical 25 - 30) and focuses his efforts on preparing for (and peaking at) the majors and the most prestigious of the other tournaments. His manner off of the course is cautious as well, as he carries himself in interviews and public appearances with a carefully controlled demeanor." [Budha-Makara-8]
