Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Dhaniztha * Vasu

BPL commentary

For Dhaniztha 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 Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors,, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Dhaniztha-born often respond to a deep inner fear (Shani) which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition (Kuja). The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born fellows endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. They are intensely competitive. In no uncertain terms, these men play to win. Goal-oriented and often ruthless, their playing fields are typically located in the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani, where they strive for alpha-dominant positions.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, Vasu champions are surrounded by lawful, systematic, and often timid folks who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascent to the peak of the hierarchy.

Dhaniztha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniztha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance. Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniztha favor athletic, competitive movement. They thrive where the blood-stirring beat of the war-drums is pulsing, energizing, and strong. They set high-achievement goals, and they win. When Dhaniztha folk choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, and dominated by men.

Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's dominating, goal-oriented, competitive vigor. Since Mangala rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions, this breed competes aggressively for leadership.

Kumbha pada 3-4 = famed as dominating, irascible, intimidating personalities who may have been bullied in their youth. Their innovative actions may change the course of civilization. Since Kuja rules a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the characteristics of Mangala.

Themes of brotherhood, survival, vitality, forceful movement, controlled explosion, exploration, winning, pioneering, discovery, invention, drilling, penetration, invasion, intimidation, sexual pursuit, and conquest may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniztha

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. (see later Pada descriptions)."
