Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Arudra - Betelgeuse * 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.

Passionately Communicative

[Risk-rewarding 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 - Betelgeuse 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,

  • makes it difficult for other people to tolerate her.

Although she is extremely clever in her conversation

and many people will be impressed by her speech,

  • while still disliking her.

She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,

  • but on herself rather than on others,

  • although at times she will be grudgingly generous
  • to those with whom she comes in contact.

She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

  • as there is a tendency towards tuberculosis." [end quote]

[Surya in bhava-12] may indicate an imaginary, specter, ephemeral, 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.

Mood-Dysregulation Patterns

+ + speculated bi-polar mood-regulation 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.

MM 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 various guises was noted throughout the family network. There were several suicides including her mom. A suiciding elder elicits the child's abandonment response. Beautiful and supremely talented though she was, MM's mood swings from depression to exhilaration became more extreme as she aged. MM attraction to narcissistic masculine partners similar to her childhood sexual predators (mostly politicians, mostly actors) became fraught with unmanageable anxiety.

Shani-5 in 10th-from-Chandra suggests an orderly, equity-seeking, contract-structured entertainment (5) career. She also had the potential to be involved with government at the highest levels ([uchcha] Shani).

Ms. Monroe was said to have been a diligent worker who practiced her dance routines and scripts in a disciplined manner.

[uchcha] Shani-5 rules 8-mysteries, non-disclosure, dangerous liaisons +++ 9-celebrity life philosophy, dharma, worldview

Shani receives drishti from both Guru and Rahu, creating a Guru-Shani-Rahu trine in 1-5-9 that radiates in considerable magnitude

From [Chandra-Makara-Draco] lagna, the mature voice of sober serious structured hierarchical Professor Shani rules

  • the emotionally-motivated traditionalism, family lineage conserving, treasure-preserving, language-and-history remembering, acquisitive, genetic conservation of [2nd-from-Chandra]
  • the emotional authenticity of in-the-body feelings represented by sensitive, receptive, absorptive Chandrana

randhresha Shani-5 indicates that despite her personal sense of responsibility and duty [Shani] the forces of unexpected identity change altered her public profile and sudden events surprised her both personally (Chandra-8) and professionally (Shani-the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra)


Guru drishti into putra-putrikisthāna-5 is fertile, but blocked by [uchcha] Shani-5 * and Guru-Chandra in 2-12 angle suggests no progeny

MM was married three times by the age of 30. Although MM had no living children, reportedly she miscarried twice and suffered an ectopic pregnancy during her third marriager.

" I am made of photographs"

MM experienced the world through an instrumental, expedient, opportunistic, fabricated personality Rahu in bhava-1

Built upon the basic chassis of young Norma Jean Baker, the charismatic fashion icon Marilyn Monroe was crafted by a series of cosmetic artists, image managers, talent agents, professional handlers, and business partners. [Mithuna]

Marilyn Monroe (stage name) was magnetically [Rahu] photogenic [Mithuna] .

Rahu provides a sparkling, mottled aura coupled with a natural Arudra double-Rahu enthusiasm for risk-taking as well as a Mithuna mental engagement in the world of communications media.

Legendary images feature various provocative (Arudra) poses, wearing various items of couture, displaying different appliances and layers of cosmetic paint.

Underneath the veneer percolates Rahu's desire for the privileges attending the important person (1) and the fascinating excitement of a taboo-breaking embodiment.
