Feminine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Uttara-phalguni women are famously confident and willful. Monarchic entitlement pairs with aristocratic service via noblesse oblige. While much depends upon the characteristics of sparkling nakshatrapathi Surya, the feminine Falgun is often found in bright environments of royalty, celebrity, theatre, creative arts, amusements, and games.

Uttaraphalguni ladies radiate a profound love for living creatures, both wild and domestic. On behalf of the animal kingdom and its denizens, the women of Aryaman may undertake political activism. As righteous (and self-righteous) human mistresses of the animal world, their political style may include fiery displays of romantic idealism. They may collect animals.

Simha-Leya pada-1 features charismatic centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada-1 must hold the center of attention, whether in celebrity politics, entertainment and fashion, dramatic acting, or all three. Typically an elder husband and many romances.

Kanya Pada 2-3-4 = equally dazzling, idealistic, smart, and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician due to nakshatrapathi Surya. Typically a younger husband and many romances.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."
