Mrigashirsha - Mrigashiras - Mraga - Mruka - Marga-ziraza - Agrahayani - Ena-ziras
For Mriga-shiras births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, 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 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 exceptionally acute sense of smell.
[Vrishabha - Urisha] pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Shukra-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, Urisha pada-1-2 of Mriga have a stronger propensity toward guidance  and governance roles  .
[Mithuna - 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  and enemies  have equal influence. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..
Themes of forward movement , group activity, and sporting competition contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Mrigashira - Invaka.
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde. . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80
" Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,
They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.
They are suspicious of other peoples' motives
Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action
Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

Edison brought to market a stunning string of patented inventions in the first half of his life from his early 20's until his mid 40's. By the end of his 4th decade Yet, relatively few successes proportional to his large aspirations and huge funding, and by the onset of Rahu Mahadasha he produced no further inventions. Rather, he lived richly from royalties and patents.
Edison maintained an iconic public profile via the respectable, wealthy, intelligent complex of Shani-Shukra-Surya. He delivered speeches and proclamations via Budha-9 also ruled by the authoritative Shani-10-Śaśaka Yoga. But investors began to lose their confidence in his judgment.
Mahadasha of Rahu started Edison's age 45. Rahu enjoys vargottamsha in bhava-6 D-1 AND in the treasury-indicating navamsha-2. Rahu drishti to Shani-Shukra-Surya amplifying the results of 1-4-6-9-10 and funneling those results into bhava-6 opportunities from lawsuits and appropriations.
By the time of the onset of Rahu Mahadasha, Mr. Edison had essentially stopped producing new ideas [which were in most cases actually new combinations of other people's ideas] .
Yet mahadasha of Rahu-6 [the most productive location for Rahu generally] brought an era of remarkable material gainfulness.
Edison's repertoire of patents and licenses continued to pay handsome dividends throughout the subsequent Guru mahadasha. Edison continued to work in his laboratory every day, albeit producing little in the way of invention. Despite the health problems associated with Guru in 6th-from-Chandra, Professor Guru [as ruler of 8-11] provided continuous income from providential sources.
