Masculine Nativity

Pūrvāṣāḍhā * Apah

BPL commentary

For Pūrvāṣāḍhā births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani-Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī-Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.

Inspirational diplomatic grace

Pūrvāṣāḍhā are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically, apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Male births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Shukra vs. Guru.

In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.

Like all Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Shukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.

Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Apah

contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86

"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .

One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.

  • Stupid, yet ostentatious and vulgar ,

  • with very few educational advantages.

Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.

  • While he must, because of educational handicaps,

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

  • but ineffectual if put in authority ."

Kanya cluster in bhava-9 patriarchal figures: victim narrative [story of being eaten] and popular appeal

Many of AB's most celebrated dramatic roles have prominently featured the victim narrative [story of being eaten] [Kanya]. In youthful portrayals, he specialized in the character of the Angry Young Man. Surya-9 grants Credibility; his representation of the unfairly treated man are supremely believable.

More mature roles tended to dramatize betrayal, false accusation, humiliation, and unmet expectations. Kanya represents "soap opera" narrative of injustice, that is continuously popular among the service classes Kanya.

According to the eminent Jyotisha Shri B.V. Raman, every land and people is governed by a particular rashi, and Raman asserts that the rashi of Mother India is Kanya. When Mr. Bachchan's finances failed or he experienced injuries or disgrace, his popular appeal in Kanya-land has steadily increased.
