Masculine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Mriga-zirshana 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 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, Urisha pada-1-2 of Mriga 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 contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies 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."
