BPL commentary

For Chitra - Tvastri births of a feminine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

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

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Vismakarma ladies are blessed with direct, muscular physical and sexual energy. They are often found in environments where beautiful designs plus physical agility are valued. Chitrani typically excel in competitive, vitality-focused fields such as fashion modeling, cinematic acting, musical performance, choreography and dance, and athletics which emphasize balanced movement.

Kanya pada 1-2 expresses Kuja's rulership of 3-writing-commerce + 8-secret transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Budha's Writing skills may emerge in pada 1-2. Kanya-Chaitra are often found in media communications and commercial aspects of design work, where their pro-active process management is distinctive. Trust and relationship integrity may be growth-challenging.

Thula - Vanika Pada 3-4 emphasizes Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, treasuries + 7-contracts, alliances. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills rise in pada 3-4 due to the pleasant attractions of Zukra-Mangala. Ladies often enjoy considerable wealth via face, voice, marriage, and family lineage. In music, arts, and partnership-craft, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. In the arts, entertainment, beauty, and design industries, their contractual deals are often luxuriously beneficial.

Themes of competitive movement, agile beauty, dynamic design, and financial equity may contextualize Chaitra's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra-Spica

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96.

"An expensive and luxurious person.

  • One who is fond of clothes and beautiful surroundings and revels in them.

  • She spends much money on jewels, perfumes, cosmetics

  • and her taste in these matters is expensive .

She likes to change costumes several times a day

  • and always look like an animated fashion plate .

Variety is the spice of life to this woman

  • and she will be inconstant and fickle in love affairs,

  • having many during her life and marrying often.

Many actresses, musicians, artists and opera singers have Chitra rising.

If she is born on the day before the New Moon, with this asterism rising,

  • she will have a husband who will die four years after her marriage to him

  • and she will never have any children...."

  • likely some dissolute behaviors (Ketu).
  • Guru rules 4 + 7 suggesting that husband-1 would have an established life foundation (Pitt's conventional long-married Midwest parents).

For Ms. Aniston, the dara-karaka = Mangala-Vrischika-1 at zero-degrees, .holding also zero-degrees in Karkata navamsha-7. Spousal partners are somewhat powerless (dead state) to fulfill partnership roles and that additionally the function of partners is usurped by the self because Kuja-1 lagnesha svakshetra svabhava is deeply focused on the physical body and the social individuality which is antithetical to concerns of union and trust.
