BPL commentary

For Purva-azadha births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Zukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani, Purva-phalguni, or Purva-azadha may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.

Inspirational diplomatic grace

Purvazadha are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Male births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Zukra vs. Guru.

In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Zukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.

Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Purva-azadha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86

"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .

One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.

  • Stupid, yet ostentatious and vulgar ,

  • with very few educational advantages.

Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.

  • While he must, because of educational handicaps,

    go through life as a servant or at best an underling ,

He vainly considers himself above his station in life

  • and will be harsh and dominating

  • but ineffectual if put in authority ."

Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Surreptitious attempt to appear as a global, humanistic, ideologically-framed agent of understanding. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any).

Rahu in bhava-9 GH passion for the Vaishnava doctrine was legendary.

Rahu-Simha-9 located in 3rd-from Guru = communicating Guru's uplifting wisdom-message Brihaspati-Mithunaya-7 instructions, messages, song-writing lyrics. ++ contracts, deals, (musical and legal) arrangementsDec-1970 GH devotional hymn My Sweet Lord reached number-one on Anglosphere popular-music sales charts. * Guru-Rahu chidradasha * samchara Rahu-Ketu via Kumbha-Simha contact radical R-K ++ D-9 ++ D-10

  • Ketu-yuti-Surya * surrendered creativity, empty drama, unsustainable confidence, disconnected father, apathetic intelligence, intellectual disengagement, dispersed vision, disinterest in games, unfulfilled genius, fragmented politics, incoherent entertainments, wandering focus. Spiritual liberation via release of egocentricity.


Ketu-3 disregard for lungs-hands-shoulders.

GH was a lifetime chain-smoker of tobacco and marijuana. Zukra-Meena in 6th-from-Chandra indicates emotionally motivated addictions. Harrison is reported to have continued smoking nearly until the end of life. After being stabbed in the chest more than 40 time by a violently criminal home-invader, GH died of lung cancer which had metastasized to the brain.
