Pūrvāṣāḍhā * Apah
For Pūrvāṣāḍhā births of a feminine 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.
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
Feminine births in Pūrvāṣāḍhā carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Pūrvāṣāḍhā ladies are often dramatists, musicians, and entertainers. Often, they sing beautifully and play stringed instruments. They love to travel and serve as a muse to creative partners.
Feminine births in Asadhash tend to benefit from the sweetness and relationship orientation of Shukra. In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and finance, they may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and graceful fashion models. Pūrvāṣāḍhā are often lyricists and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments. Their tonal arrangements may appeal to everyday folks. These ladies are self-indulgent and pure of heart.
Brihaspati represents their typically generous husbands and their characteristic faith. Typically, apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often expands the range of inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow.
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 which leads to natural states of balance and pleasure. 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
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 99
"Lovely eyes set in a beautiful face,
She is also to be distinguished by the small well-proportioned feet.
She has a generous positive character
and should be successful in some occupation
She is apt to have been born in an influential family."
1983 Out on a Limb = first top-selling book written by Shirley MacLaine

[Dharmesha for Dhanus-born ]
[entitled aristocratic celebrity]
[competitive centre-stage radiance]
Dad was a high-school principal and real-estate agent. in the Washington DC region. He earned a Ph.D. but did not teach at university level. Un the earlier part of his life, dad was a local jazz musician. He died age 83.
= dad is somewhat secretive and selfish . father is oriented to theoretical, ideological university life but secretive (8) in behavior and his influence upon the native is draining.
According to Out on a Limb 1934- drama-author Shirley MacLaine, her teacher-father was a narcissist who wanted to gain praise in the academic world. He was unconcerned with caring for his family. SM's navamsha-11 Surya-yuti-Guru-yuti-Rahu confirms Dad's solipsism and ambition for gain.

SM married a businessman (Kumbha-3).
Guru-10-Kanya with no companion graha in Kanya suggests one socially recognized husband.
SM separated from her first and only husband soon after their only child, a daughter, was born.
The couple remained legally married although living in separate countries for approximately 29 years (a full Shani cycle). A legal divorce was undertaken only when it was discovered that her husband had embezzled millions of dollars from her accounts. Shukra rogesha.

[Guru-10 parivartamsha Budha-4-nīcha]
CAREER - BUDHA
Typical of the "missing-steps" [nīcha] Budha, SM's logical arguments failed to provide a scaffolding mechanism by which mainstream readers could understand her claims, and SM's books were ridiculed. Her [nīcha] Budha's fantasy-conceptualism is exacerbated by Guru's parivartamsha drishti to Budha. Yet, Shani the potential common sense corrector cannot help Budha because change-resistant Shani occupies 12th-from-Budha.
[nīcha] Budha often lacks the rungs in the ladder or has missing steps in a the scaffolding supports, thus the [nīcha] Budha explanations take great leaps without preparing the listener with necessary preparatory information. Guru ruled Budha-Meena grants a visionary, abstract, dreamlike cosmic viewpoint but this woolly area is a poor habitat for data-detail, precise stepwise argumentation instructional Budha.
Budha = rules navamsha 1- 10 = career in scripts, media, writing, publications, delivering messages, evangelism. Greatly strengthened by Mangala-Mithunaya-10th navamsha

Shani Kumbha = occupies 7th-from-Chandra, activates 6th-from-Chandra * 30 year marriage, but began living in separate countries soon after birth of their only child.
"I was married for 30 years, but he lived in Japan. I lived with many other men ... Men always wanted to get married, in my experience. So I stayed married to Steve so that I wouldn't marry them. I didn't like the idea of marriage. I find it too compromising, too confining. My parents had a 55-year bad marriage. I never knew anyone in a happy marriage. "
-- Sarah Hampson. An Age of Enlightenment. TheGlobeandMail.com. 9/15/2008
"Although MacLaine's relationship with her husband had become increasingly remote, they were virtually separated by the mid-70s she was stunned to hear from a channeler in the early 80s that Parker had bilked her of millions, systematically transferring her money to his girlfriend's account in Tokyo. MacLaine hired a private investigator, who confirmed the charges."

rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
SM became a public exponent of "alternative history" narratives accepted only by a savvy advanced subculture.
Although the narratives were written in simple and clear voice, the claims were unfamiliar to her more conventional mainstream entertain-me audience. Shukra-3 publishing also activates 6 conflict, accusations, belittlement.
