Masculine Nativities


Mrigashirsha * Mrigashiras * Mraga * Mruka * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani * Ena-ziras

BPL commentary

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....

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 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.[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."

Mutual aspect between dhanesha-treasurer-2 Chandra [assets] +++ vriddhi-pati-11 Kuja [economic gains]

QUOTATION from 300 Combinations 1912-1998 Jyotiṣika B. V. Raman

  • "A perusal of astrological literature bearing up ''Wealth' reveals clearly that in order to become rich, one should have in his horoscope combinations which comprehend a point of contact between lords of Lagna, 2nd, 11th, 5th and 9th.
  • Permutations and combinations of these lords give rise to a stupendous number of Dhana Yogas "

commentary on Madhya Vayasi Dhana Yoga

Mangala in bhava-4 rules Rahu-6 = known for his Rahu-ish

  • [1] ruthless defense of Microsoft Corp against FTC charges of anti-trust crimes
  • [2] financial and managerial dedication to the Gates Foundation in support of health, education, and welfare of the world's most disadvantaged children

Mangala in bhava-4 = Kanya = aggressive handling of adversaries. With [uchcha-Budha], Kuja produces superior argumentation using detailed calculations and logical force. When accused of conspiratorial malfeasance with IBM in corporate anti-trust charges filed by the Federal Trade Commission, WHG personally represented the corporation in the partially televised hearings, where he spoke with fierce certainty about the facts [Budha] of the case and the logical errors of the accusation.

Rahu in bhava-6 -Vṛścika finds its most vigorous opportunities in conflict and criminal litigation. WHG's defense [Kuja] was seen as heroic in the face of government pressure, as well as factually correct. Microsoft won the case.

Problem-pursuer Kanya Kuja

= critical, incisive, investigative penetration

Budha holds the higher degree winning the yuddha.

  • potential to collapse into simple complaining, but due to the dominance of [uchcha-Budha]
  • the logical arguments -- however vociferous -- are not overwhelmed by rogesha Mangala's apprehension of problematicity.

vriddhi-pati-11 Mars occupies a navamsha of Budha. Radix Budha indicates the means of economic gain. [uchcha-Budha] = also lagnesha-1 = mental focus. Add to the mental acuity, the energetic enthusiasm and aggressive critiquing of Mangala-Kanya.

Pursuit of logical outcomes

Like most financially privileged people, WHG rogesha-6 = comfortably configured - which means he has extremely high intelligence for managing debt.

Kuja associated with animosity + illness, but because Kuja is dominated in degree by the excellent [uchcha-Budha], the most vulgar effects generally do not emerge. His mom's health was afflicted by fatal breast cancer.

  • As rogesha-6 Kuja can motivate complex banking activities [loans] ; as Vriddhi-pati-11 Kuja may bring tremendous gains in the marketplace.

  • The fuel for these activities, by and large gainful, is the superior analytical intelligence of Mercury.

  • Danger of accident especially under Kuja/Chandra; tendency to bowel illness; but also the intelligence to correct diet.

accurate [uchcha-Budha] + incisively criticizing Mangala-Kanya = strategic belligerence, drishti of Kuja upon 7 [lawcourts] 10 [leadership] and 11 [economic systems]

  • reputed for quick mental reflexes, = smart with calculations [Budha] ++ downright adversarial in verbal confrontation [Mangala]

  • Rahu-6 can be criminalized and Kuja-Kanya-4 rules Rahu-6. However, budha dominates Kuja. Gates was alternately evasive and philosophically dramatic in testimony. No long-term damage was done to Microsoft - nor to Gates' personal wealth, which continued to rise and rise. \
