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 .

ERT held the cinematic limelight = camera-focus upon her physical visage endured from her early childhood until dematerialization age 85.

SHIMMERING SUPREME (10) BEAUTY uttama- Zukra-yuti-Rahu-10

After the Shani Mahadasha age 5-24 and the subsequent Budha bhukti 24-40, ERT remained in the public eye -- even when most actresses of her vintage had long since retired.


ERT's lifestyle remained perpetually fascinating due to Rahu-yuti-uttama-Zukra in the peak of public visibility bhava-10.

But bhava-10 is also the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra , suggesting that much of the fascination was focused upon her mysterious ability to break marriage conventions.


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.
