Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary

For Mriga-sirasa 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 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-zirasa 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, politicsmmanufacturing, 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, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. 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 may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mriga-zirasa.

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."

Feminine Nativities

Chitra-Tvastri * Citthirai * Vismakarma * Azinech * Alaraph * Arista * Dana

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 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

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. "

Risk-rewarding, boundary-breeching Rahu thrives in Bhava-6 where He finds opportunity in the worlds of crime, war, pharmacy, self-medication, toxicity.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Singha * dissociates from creative performance, incomplete entitlement, empty intelligence, dissolute brilliance, not limited by celebrity roles, ignores restriction on political opinion, applies theatrical solipsism to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-12 (beneficial) * ambivalent toward enclosures, absent from the ancestor spirits, disregards fantasy boundaries, dissolves the isolated sanctuaries, irrelevance of sleep * Ambivalence toward clairsentient empowerment, disinterested in invisibility. One abandons the veil between perceptual worlds, ignores the dreams, surrenders the fear of imprisonment.
  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra * surrendered arrangements * unfulfilled promises * disconnected bargaining * unsustainable contracts * incomplete harmony * fragmented negotiations * abandoned alliances * absence of equity * apathetic brokerage * eccentric music * distrust * dissatisfaction in relationships * Spiritual liberation via release of vows * For husbandly nativities, may dissolve the wifely-figures.

Michael Douglas with Catherine Zeta Jones
