Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Arudra-Orion * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra - Orion births of masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Rudhira, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from Orion. Their purpose is to communicate the passionate animal vitality via stormy, turbulent, swaying, exciting gesture and signal.

Passionately Communicative

Rahu-ruled Arudra - Orion fellows are often found in muscular, passionate, body-intensive roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage. Stage performers of high excellence, Arudra - Orion gentlemen are often admired for their pulsing sensuality and animal magnetism.

Thiruvaathira chaps may be gifted in all varieties of manual labor, handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of beckoning, seductive gesture (Budha).

Themes of stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra - Orion's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra - Orion.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81.

"Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Zukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games.

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, deal-brokering ability, and glamour in romantic relationships. Queenly and self-referential, they require equity in marriage and business contracts. Honesty is deeply important to them. Yet, due to Zukra's bargaining nature, the insult of disloyalty may be balanced by financial compensation.

Like all sweet-seeking Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political and creative success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of theatrical celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.
