Feminine Public-Figure Examples
Arudra - Betelgeuze * Trinetra
For Arudra - Orion births of a feminine 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 paradigm of Rahu-ruled 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.
[Rahu] -ruled Ardraka ladies have stormy temperament. They may be considered capricious, inconsistent, and demanding. Often they are found in sensuous, writhing, twisting, fascinating roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage.
Depending upon Arudra - Orion's social environment, their seductive appeal may express as private or public When professionalized, Tiruvaatira-born may be stage performers of high excellence, who send waves of desire [Rahu] through an audience numbering one or one-million.
Rahu-ruled Arudra - Betelgeuze displays the animal intensity of the storm. Arudra women often are blessed with the capacity to regenerate their physical vitality and recreate their persona.
Ardraka women are often the diva type who are sensuously clever [Rahu] verbally quick, and impatient with those who are less communicatively responsive. Thiruvaathira-born may be gifted in handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of seductive imagery such as photography, costume, and arts-of-style [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 93r.
" A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...
Her disagreeable disposition,
coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,
Although she is extremely clever in her conversation
and many people will be impressed by her speech,
She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,
She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

CAREER - SURYA
[Surya in bhava-12] may indicate an invisible (12) father-figure [Surya].
Dad was consciously unknown to her.
Although a paternal name is mentioned on her birth certificate, Monroe claimed that her identity-transforming mother (ruler of 8 Chandra in 8th-from-8th) had identified several different men as being young Norma Jean's bio-dad .
According to Ms. Monroe, she never met any man who admitted to being her father. Instead, she fantasized that various movie stars were her real dad.
Her mother pointed to several popular cinema stars as the marvelous progenitor. Biographers have opined that Norma Jean's father was likely her mom's former shift-supervisor in a film-cutting factory. Dharmesha-9 Surya in 6 would suggest that the bio-dad = a rank-and-file worker. Shani in 9th-from-Chandra suggests the blocked identity of father.

Borderline Personality Disorder + + speculated bi-polar disorder
The core pattern of Borderline Personality Disorder is a profound terror of abandonment. In extreme cases the terror may provoke psychotic episodes. The name borderline indicates that one's misery lingers on the border between neurotic anxiety and psychotic hallucination. Monroe recalled in interviews that one of her earliest memories was a terrifying scene of her mother smothering toddler Norma Jean with a pillow. Mom is retrospectively acknowledged to have suffered from unpredictable violence in context of extreme mood swings, depression, and suicidal threats. Mental illness in vious guises was noted throughout the family network including several suicides including her mom (a suiciding elder elicits the child's abandonment response). Beautiful and supremely talented though she was, MM's depressions and exhilaration became more extreme as she aged, and her attraction to narcissistic males (mostly politicians, mostly actors) became fraught with anxietyr.

According to her own reports, MM didn't know her first husband until the day they were married. He was a son of a friend of one of her relatives. The ostensible purpose of the marriage was to protect Norma Jean from returning to Yet, another abusive foster home and to relieve her relatives of worry in her care. He shipped out for military service shortly after their wedding; their communication was spotty [Ketu] and she lost interest in the venture long before he returned from service. Although both lived in Los Angeles, they never spoke. He eventually became a local policeman.
