Feminine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Uttara-phalguni women are famously confident and willful. Monarchic entitlement pairs with aristocratic service via noblesse oblige. While much depends upon the characteristics of sparkling nakshatrapathi Surya, the feminine Falgun is often found in bright environments of royalty, celebrity, theatre, creative arts, amusements, and games.

Uttaraphalguni ladies radiate a profound love for living creatures, both wild and domestic. On behalf of the animal kingdom and its denizens, the women of Aryaman may undertake political activism. As righteous (and self-righteous) human mistresses of the animal world, their political style may include fiery displays of romantic idealism. They may collect animals.

Simha-Leya pada-1 features charismatic centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada-1 must hold the center of attention, whether in celebrity politics, entertainment and fashion, dramatic acting, or all three. Typically one attracts an elder husband along with many charming romances.

Kanya Pada 2-3-4 = equally dazzling, idealistic, smart, and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician due to nakshatrapathi Surya. Typically one attracts a generous husband.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

Half a year after her fiancé's tragic decease, still during the same Rahu-Rahu swabhukti in 1978, to the surprise of her friends and family, she met and quickly married a previously unknown man.

  • Shani in Bhava-12 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious sleep state. One must retreat in fear from the guidance of dreams and visions.

Psychic fatigue. Resistance to new prayers. Resentment toward changes in meditation practice. Intolerance toward unconventional foreigners. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as researcher, incarcerator, bedbound invalid, sanctuary maintainer, monastery or hotel worker

Shani in Bhava-12 resides in the dramatic, creative 5th-from-Chandra = diligence in theatrical performance = Rigorous training in performing arts. Perfectionism in artistic performance.

A known perfectionist who can exhaust herself (Shani) physically and psychically (12) with in preparation for a theatrical role (Simha). E.g., she famously learned to play the violin, by practicing 6 hours a day for 8 weeks, for her role in Music of the Heart (1999).

Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious partners (personal and professional). Rahu-7 trespasses the cultural boundaries of negotiated agreements, covenants, agreed terms of exchange. Mixed-culture marriage. Rahu the Poseur may pose as the Perfect Partner, a middleman, a bargainer, a diplomat, a fascinating arranger, an agreeable advocate. Rahu-7 grants advantageous career positioning via instrumental alliances.

Rahu gains great strength during Rahu-Rahu swabhukti. At the time of her marriage her R-K samchara had entered Kanya-Meena. This sudden, unanticipated union with her sculptor mate has produced four children and endured for more than 40 years.
