Feminine Nativities


Pashu * Pushana-vana *Antyabha

BPL commentary

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 is delicately 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 Revatika-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, 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.

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.

Revatika-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 Revatika-Pashu .

[Yogakaraka] from Tula-Chandra-lagna

Shani activates

  • the brilliant, dramatic 5th-from-Chandra
  • Shani in Bhava-11 occupies the parental, home-based, established, foundational 4th-from-Chandra
  • bhava-12 Kumbha Karakamsha
  • bhava-12 = hospitals, stupor, sleep, sanctuary, invisibility, enclosure

Shani mahadasha * age 8 until age 27


Harshly time-scheduled youth

earnings-driven Shani 10th drishti into Chandra-8

  • Mother = theatrical-performance taskmaster
  • former stage actress Sara Sothern = mom = ERT's relentless stage-manager

Shani-11 drishti upon unconditional-love Chandra-5 = harsh early parenting with conditional acceptance granted on basis of material production.

  • Generating her own children on the expected time-schedule (early 20's) was also a performance expectation in her era.
  • She did the work.

Shani = discipline of craft, structure of work.

  • Child-actress ERT began her serious, sober, demanding, and profitable work at age 7, in the early portion of Shani Mahadasha.

Other children were reading stories in schoolrooms but ERT was working full time in cinema studios.

  • "I never could kick up my heels like other kids; there were too many restraints," Taylor wrote in her 1988 memoir "My life was overscheduled and over-disciplined."

ERT often claimed that she never had a childhood.

  • As an adult, ERT bonded with those who shared her missing-childhood resentments. Among her best friends later in life = King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson who began full-time performance contract work at age-5.
  • ERT claimed that unlike most celebrities, she understood and respected working-class people, including her final husband the construction equipment operator. Her empathy arose from childhood experience of relentless discipline and sleep deprivation enforced by the timeclock.

ERT suffered lifelong emotional tension of conditional-approval

IMPACT OF Shani drishti

Shani in Bhava-11 in somber, hard-working Makara

  • childhood labor

Shani drishti constricts 1 + 5 + 8

  1. bhava-1 Shukra-Rahu = fascinating beauty, thrilling boundary-breeching attractions = 8th-from-Chandra

  2. bhava-5 expansive lagnesha karmesha [uchcha] Guru = 10th-from-Chandra

  3. bhava-8 containing Tula-Chandra = familiar-face, mothering, comfort, creativity +++ long-living mothe

ERT's Work ethic was widely respected in the film industry during her professional years. The talented child matured into a beguiling teenager then a splendidly beautiful woman. Yet the work habits remained soberly responsible.

harsh social-approval drishti upon Chandra-8 = work to earn approval of her mom Sara, the stage mother + task-master.

  • Mom remained as an agent of structure + creativity until mom died aged 99.

  • Shukra-yuti-Rahu the Amplifier * The mutual aspect of Rahu-Guru naturally expands [Guru] and mottles [Rahu] an aura [Guru] of speckled bright light around her.

After the Shani Mahadasha age 8-27 and the subsequent Budha Mahadasha 28-45, ERT remained in the public eye -- even when most actresses of her vintage had long since retired.


ERT's lifestyle remained perpetually fascinating


ERT's remarkable ability to break marriage contracts was considered scandalous yet utterly fascinating to the audience for her films and fashion modeling. The next generation of American women who married in the 1960's and later were able to divorce-and-remarry with ease, due in part to the pioneering imagery generated by ERT.
