Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativity

Pūrvāṣāḍhā * Apah

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Shukra-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

Pūrvāṣāḍhā 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. Masculine births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Shukra vs. Guru.

In addition to Shukra 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 Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Shukra'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 Pūrvāṣāḍhā-Apah

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 ."
