Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Revati - Pausan

Pashu - Pushana-vana - Antyabha


For Revatika births of a feminine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

Pashu the Pastor may be sensitively attuned to the signals of the animal kingdom. Hearing [Budha] the voices of mineral, plant, animal, and human worlds, Antyabha-born often work for the welfare of all creatures. Many veterinarians and animal-welfare activists are Revatī-born. These way-showers are also found in all aspects of music and dancing, producing melodies, beats, and lyrics.

Whatever the Pashu folk say, others will follow and believe.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Antyabha, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, castmates, classmates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts -- and beasts of every description - may be especially influential.

Budha's amsha favors business of all types. Revati may produce imaginatively talkative attorneys especially commercial lawyers. Partners, siblings, and companions may also follow the logical argumentor's trade.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of stars clustered near Zeta Piscium. Their purpose is to shepherd the flocks in safe passage, calling them to follow with an imaginative, sweet sound and rhythm

The Way-Shower

Revatika ladies expresses the natural tension between Busy Bantering Budha and Guiding Generous Guru. Commercially oriented Budha is a master of writing, reporting, cinema, and detailed communication. Kumara naturally matches the vibration of chatty students and a younger audience. Yet, Brihaspati much prefers to preach on broad-scope topics, ideology and inclusive doctrine.

Revatī-born often find themselves in shepherding roles that require delivering a message to their herd of followers. The usual delivery style is musical, oratorical, or imagistic-imaginative, but any method of Showing the Way may be chosen. Pashu the Pastor combines a broad humanistic vision with a beckoning repeating signal frequency such as a slogan, a jingle, or a melody.

Themes of pastoral guidance, musical or imagistic messaging, and benevolent outreach to all creatures may contextualize Revatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Revatī - Pashu .


QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 101

the native is a person of clean morals

  • and is popular with her own sex.

She is fond of pets and animals.

She is a very good housekeeper

  • and likes interior decoration and design .

Her face is laughing, always with dimples,

  • and she usually has black or dark brown eyes with curly hair."

Dramatized [5] the new // Working Girl // model for modern American women. Vigorous supporter of American military. Her mom Lela had been a USA-Marine in WW-1.

Five-decade top caliber entertainment career in dance-theatre has lasting sentimental appeal to the American audience. Managed by her mother Lela [Chandra-1] Rogers dazzled and distracted sad audiences during the Great Depression, bringing a ray of sunshine to many during that dark time.

GR was by far the leading actress-choreographer-dancer of 20th century Hollywood musicals. Her entertainment career began at GR's age 14. She worked in burlesque, cinema, television, and wrote a popular memoire.

She was also an independent financial speculator [5] who built a fortune from her earned capital by making her own investment decisions.


Mom = Lela Emogene Owens [1891–1977]

Mom = journalist, film producer, film editor, executive secretary to RKO studio bosses, acting teacher, and screenwriter. At age 17, Mom married GR's dad. Parents divorced when little Virginia was age-3.

Protective chaperon and stage-manager, Mom was the single most influential person in GR's long and complex biography [Chandra in classroom-1] [Chandra flow].

The mother-daughter pair enjoyed stability and affection, emotionally patriotic-defensive political views [5] and anchoring religious principles. Only 18 years elder to her daughter, Mom was Ginger's most comfortable companion.

A classic stage mother, Mom pushed and promoted Ginger's talent from daughter's age 14. Perhaps not surprisingly due to mom's insider privilege, Ginger was contracted to RKO Pictures. The legendary precision dancer, Fred Astaire, also worked at RKO.

Mom's political orientation defined Ginger's own convictions [Chandra rules 5].

Mom was a political activist [5] and her defensive views were virulently anti-Communist [Surya-5 rules 6-enemies]. A cinema-studio insider due to her employment, Mom was recruited into the bullying regime of J.Edgar Hoover . Mom was invited to Washington D.C. in order to Blacklist suspected Communists in Hollywood.

Ginger and Lela

Like mom, Ginger was a lifelong political conservative and strict adherent of Christian Science doctrine.

Except for living with maternal grandparents during early childhood and during short periods at the beginning of each of her five marriages, GR lived and traveled with her mother. After 1940, mother and daughter quietly resided at GR's expansive ranch in southwest Oregonr.

GR was one of the first and still a respected role-model for women performing artists taking transformative leadership roles in the entertainment industry

[sarala yoga [prevents untoward consequences of randhrasthana

[Guru-yuti-Ketu] in bhava-8 signifies the revolving-door of GR's five brief marriages, which would normally have been stigmatized in the 1930's and 1940's when GR's career was most active.

  • However, GR upheld a sanitized public profile framed by her unswerving devotion to the Christian Science doctrine of Mary Baker Eddy.
  • She sold war-bonds and maintained a public facade of conservative patriotic political conviction.

HEALTH [Shukra-6]

Much of the potentially pernicious medication-related influence of Shukra-6 has been reduced by

  • Surya-5 ruler of 6 occupies 12th-from-6 = drains the energy of 6 into Surya [problematic father]

Both GR and her mom [Chandra] were devout members of Mary Baker Eddy's Christian Science fellowship.

  • GR completely eschewed the smoking and alcohol-drinking habits that were nearly universal in the Hollywood culture

Nevertheless, GR lived with diabetes for decades [Shukra-6 = sugar-sickness]

  • GR refused to take medical insulin, due to her faith.
  • GR was able to manage her diabetes with exercise, diet and prayer
  • As a professional dancer she naturally exercised vigorously. A top amateur tennis player, GR also exercised for sport.
  • However, in her later years, diabetic toxicity and inflammatory obsesity became severe. [Simha heat-driven inflammation]

Eventually, the disease triggered her peaceful-but-painful disembodiment during Rahu-Rahu svabhukti, age 83 [Rahu-2 maraka].

"The Working Girl"

Challenging beliefs about feminine movement [Kuja] and limitations [Shani]

GR's enduring, iconic entertainment career developed a new [Kuja] social model called "the Working Girl" [Shani work].

  • Rahu's singular challenge to old social stereotypes was that Working Girls had their Own Money [Rahu-2]

GR played important roles and starred in promotional materials that highlighted working women in action. She helped to prove to a generation that social limitations [nicha-Shani] upon personal independence [Mangala-Mesha]

  • could be personally overcome [warrior Kuja]
  • albeit cautiously and responsibly [Shani]
  • with fascinating results [Rahu fascinating]


GR's storied financial success [Rahu-Bharani] eventually pushed the envelop [Kuja] of culturally acceptable action for women [Mesha independence].

[Bharani-Shani rigid old financial rules]

  • According to conventional [atriarchal wisdom, women could not rationally manage money.
  • Still she persisted [Shani] .

GR became a highly capitalized woman through her own independent investing decisions [Surya-5 intelligent personal decisions].

  • Her insistence on selecting [5] her own preferred corporate stock and real-estate investments was extremely rare for American women in the 1940's.
  • Old-school male financial experts were appalled.

Stock-brokers and other self-appointed nay-sayers claimed that GR simply "lacked the brains" [nicha-Shani brain issues] to handle stock-market gamesmanship [5, speculative finance]

  • These men predicted that GR would suffer dire financial consequences [Shani-2] for her gender over-reaching challenge to social boundaries [Rahu].

However, GR proved them all to be rigidly outdated and culturally misogynistic via her winning combination of

  • Bharani-Shani-2 rules-11 dhana-yoga
  • Mangala dhana-pati
