For Dhaniṣṭha births of a feminine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Kuja-ruled paradigm of Vasava, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pushers, invaders, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.
Dhaniṣṭha-born often respond to a deep inner fear [Shani] which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition [Kuja]. The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.
Hierarchical Power Climber
Kuja-ruled Vasu-born ladies endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These women are athletic, goal-oriented, and competitive. Those who have chosen a feminine-form birth may find themselves surrounded by invigorating but dominating masculine figures.
Male colleagues may be surprised to discover that despite their feminine style, Dhaniṣṭha ladies are equal and serious competitors. Their sexual energies are alive, and may be used to advantage.
Dhaniṣṭha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance.
Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic movement. They thrive where the beat of the war-drums is deep and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniṣṭha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniṣṭha ladies choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and men.
In the modern era, Dhaniṣṭha ladies may use Mangala's kinetic energies to ascend the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani,. They strive for alpha-dominant positions.
All fields of competitive endeavor are open to the Avittam-born, including athletics and contests. Often preferring applied scientific careers with measurable outcomes, Dhaniṣṭha-born are also found in all types of systematic intervention into their environment, such as social engineering, political engineering, or materials engineering.
Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, feminine Vasu champions are often surrounded by lawful, systematic, and timid folk who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascending drive.
They are often respected in the boss role due to Kuja's ability to dominate the field of activity while keeping the respect of their male peers.
Vasu-born ladies face particular challenges in Kuja's aggressive, male-dominated environments. Their career pathway is studded with rough dominators using physical force and even brutality.
Yet, a well-placed, vigorous Mangala, along with Shani's natural lawful patience, can bring Dhaniṣṭha women to the peak of social recognition and economic achievement.
Makara pada 1-2 express Kuja's control of 4-lands-roots + 11-earnings. Pro-actively patriotic (4) and driven to achieve profits (11), they are often found in real-estate (4) education (4) agriculture (4) transportation (4) police + defense industry (4) minerals + mining (4) or in any marketplace where the path to economic gain (11) is open to Kuja's goal-oriented, competitive vigor.
Since Mangala activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = economic protectionism (4-11). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.
Themes of conquest, pursuit, and achievement may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniṣṭha

Budha-yuti-Ketu 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-2 is distinctly oblivious to the of Budha-yuti-Ketu.
On the other hand, Budha controls the social identity, placing the person into conflicted, polluted, and unfair situations throughout life.
ALF 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, ALF 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.
