Feminine Nativities

Purvazadha * Apah *Asadhash * Pooraadam * Purvasharha * Ambudaiva

BPL commentary

For Purva-azadha births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Zukra-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 Purva-azadha carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Purvazadha 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 Zukra. In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and finance, they may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and graceful fashion models. Purvazadha 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 Zukra-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, Zukra'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 Purvazadha-Apah

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 99

"Lovely eyes set in a beautiful face,

  • with small cupid's bow lips

  • and brown, naturally curly hair,

  • describes the native with Purvazadha rising at birth.

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

  • which would enable her to employ her natural ability

  • as an organizer and manager.

She is apt to have been born in an influential family."
