For Bharani births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, diplomacy, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Yamya, 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.
Guidance provided by instructors from the civilizations of Apis. Their purpose is acquisition of treasuries, carrying of beautiful objects , and preservation of values across the generations.
Feminine births within a nakshatra of Shukra carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Nevertheless, energized by action-driven Mangala, these ladies are competitive, and they play to win.
Burdened Busy Bee
[Shukra] -ruled Bharani women are the Money Gals. Yamuna-born are often found in the worlds of banking, valuation, capital markets, currency-trading, mints and coinage.
Depending upon Shukra's scope, Yamya-born may be involved in the financial aspect of any form of brokerage and deal-making, including real-estate. They may guide public fiscal affairs. Connoisseurs of pricing and aggressive bargainers, they vigorously seek acquisition of luxuries and precious objects. In addition to their financial abilities, their intuitive understanding of sound-and-color values, often leads to careers in music and arts.
The harmonious arrangements of Apa-bharanishe may be lovely even while they vigorously compete for dominance.
Their expertise in the fields of preservation, containment, and collecting may extend to wines, perfumes, fine textiles, works of art and design, and any commodity which may capitalize or increase in value. Like all Shukra-governed births, Yameza-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol.
Themes of competitive acquisition, precious sounds and song, and investment in cherished values may contextualize Bharani's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Bharani.

Shukra rules Bharani indriya-lagna
GR was considered exceedingly independent minded to manage her stock portfolio without depending on a male adviser.
[Shukra Mahadasha] age 54.3 until age 74.3
At the end of Ketu Mahadasha, GR's earnings from entertainment performances began to dwindle. She was substantially capitalized however, and Shukra was her time to invest.
the twenty-year mahadasha of Shukra ran from 1965 until 1985. She managed her own stock portfolio, which was a very unusual empowerment for a woman in that era. The long-lasting Shukra Mahadasha combined with the signature speculative-finance advantage of Shukra ruling 2-asset accumulation.
Most remember Ginger Rogers as a remarkably talented, attractive, and vivacious dancer who wore a spectacular array of beautiful, flattering costumes as she played various romantic female roles to the leading male performers of the time.
However, there was another aspect to GR's Bharani life. In her 40's, GR morphed  into a shrewd businesswoman who successfully managed her own investments, bought and sold property, and negotiated her own Hollywood contracts. [Shukra rules 7 contracts]

Success during Tough Times [nicha-Shani]
GR was one of the relatively small group of Americans who made big money during the Depression.
The widespread unemployment, poverty, and despair of the USA Great Depression [Shani] drove miserable people into the urban film theatres in great numbers.
GR's dance films were enormously popular [proletarian Shani].
GR's cinema roles celebrated the new social role of the independent " working girl" .
1930's celebrity pushed Ginger Rogers into the ranks of highest-paid actress in Hollywood. She was a canny saver [Shani]. The income  provided her investment capital  which she used to fund stock market investments and a real-estate business in retirement.
Ginger Rogers produced 70 movies, many of which represented the best Euro-American performance dancing of her century.
[Bharani-Shani + Azvini-Kuja + Bharani-Rahu] rules 11
GR lived an increasingly private life with diminishing Hollywood involvement in either cinema or television. She appeared to have fallen off the cultural and professional radar, as would be expected of an aging actress in a fickle industry.
rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]
[Bharani-1] = [navamsha Rahu-Simha] fascinating theatrics
OUTCOMES - RAHU
[Rahu in bhava-1] personality-appearance lauches the challenge to rigid social practices in movement, vitality, physical power
[Rahu in bhava-1] seeks privilege via important - often risky - cultural-mixing roles in athletics, muscular performance, innovative activities, competition, pioneering, championship
In Bharani, Rahu gains extra emphasis on asset conservation, collections, and wealth portfolio.
[Rahu-yuti-Mangala] Her bodily movements [Mangala} were adulated as over-the-top, captivating, and above all the obvious result of disciplined practice [Shani-Mangala].
Despite her ability to bargain for top pay in the women's bracket [she was the best-paid female Hollywood actress-dancer of her era] for many years, GR was paid grossly less than masculine peers.
[Rahu gender role upheaval]
GR was a trend-setter and fashion icon of the new " working girl" image [Shani working]. Her dramatic persona  symbolized profound social changes [5 = 8th-from-10 social changes.
These revolutionary changes had been propelled [Kuja] by women's large-scale entrance into the job market [11 marketplace] and their sudden access to independent money [Bharani] via earning their own salary 
GR helped to prove to a generation that limitations on personal independence could be personally challenged [Kuja] albeit cautiously and responsibly [Shani] with fascinating results [Rahu fascinating]
GR's professional and financial [Bharani] success eventually pushed the envelop [Kuja] of culturally acceptable action for women [Mesha independence].
[Bharani-Shani rigid old financial rules]
Women could not rationally manage money. // Everyone knows that. //
Still she persisted [Shani] .
GR became a remarkably wealthy woman through her own independent investing decisions. Her insistence of managing her own corporate stock and real-estate investments was extremely rare at the time for women. Old-school male financial experts were appalled. Plenty of nay-sayers predicted dire financial consequences for her challenge to social boundaries.
However, GR's winning combination beat the odds.
