Purvazadha * Apah

For Purva-azadha births of a feminine 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.
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
Feminine births in Purva-azadha carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Purvazadha ladies are often dramatists, musicians, and entertainers. Often, they sing beautifully and play stringed instruments. They love to travel and serve as a muse to creative partners.
Feminine births in Asadhash tend to benefit from the sweetness and relationship orientation of Zukra. In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and finance, they may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and graceful fashion models. Purvazadha are often lyricists and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments. Their tonal arrangements may appeal to everyday folks. These ladies are self-indulgent and pure of heart.
Brihaspati represents their typically generous husbands and their characteristic faith. Typically, apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often expands the range of inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow.
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 which leads to natural states of balance and pleasure. 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 Purvazadha-Apah
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 99
"Lovely eyes set in a beautiful face,
She is also to be distinguished by the small well-proportioned feet.
She has a generous positive character
and should be successful in some occupation
She is apt to have been born in an influential family."

CAREER - BUDHA
suggests mentality of discoveries that are abandoned + advanced psychic awareness. With this combination, one knows much more than one cares to admit. The revelations may cause some disconnection from the normal narrative.
On one hand, Ketu-8 is distinctly oblivious to the accusations, jealousies, and phobias of Budha-yuti-Ketu.
On the other hand, Budha controls the social identity, placing the person into conflicted, polluted, and unfair situations throughout life.
AF enjoyed a legendary career in American music, for which she is admired around the world.
However, in addition to her spectacular success as a musical performer, AF also suffered from addictions to tobacco and alcohol, chronic obesity, from high blood pressure, from a phobia of airplane flying, and from notorious toxic feuding with other musical performers in her genre. When asked about her increasing obesity, about the four fathers of her four sons, about her own father's notoriously immoral behavior, or about any other topic which might elicit criticism, her universal response was denial of the existence of these things (Ketu).
The year before her death from pancreatic cancer, she claimed to have had a lifesaving medical operation which would add 15-or-20 years to her life. Karmesha in 6 = 9th-from-10th = does not harm career. However, it does indicate chronic mental and physical imbalances, and these were well documented in the life of the legendary Queen of Soul.
