Masculine Nativities

Revatika * Pashu

BPL commentary

For Revatika births of a masculine 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, and He often works for the betterment 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 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.

Paushna-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 imaginative, but any method of Showing the Way may be chosen. Pashu the Pastor combines a broad welcoming vision with a beckoning repeating signal frequency such as a slogan, a jingle, or a melody.

Themes of pastoral guidance, musical messaging, and benevolent outreach to all creatures may contextualize Revatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Revatika-Pashu

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 89

"... often distinguished by a birthmark on the thigh.

They usually have well formed and beautiful physiques

  • although not necessarily large or robust

They are fond of their family and friends

  • and very sociable and hospitable .

They may not be born to wealth

  • but they have the ability to accumulate the good things of life

  • through their own efforts and usually will.

They will know how to enjoy wisely and well the fruits of their endeavors.

These people are wise and intelligent

  • and make excellent counselors to those who are in trouble
  • or are in a dilemma over some problem of life."

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman, Three Hundred Important Combinations. (10th ed., Delhi, 1991). Originally published in 1947.

110. Deha-kashta Yoga



  • The subject will be devoid of bodily comforts.


As the name implies, Dehakashta Yoga means difficulty for the body. Most of the manual workers belong to this category. The Yoga is said to become defunct if a benefic aspects the ascendant lord."

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Karkata * appreciation of comforting routine * likes to nourish * attracted to homeowners * preference for folk-lifestyle + farmers * pleasures of secure borders * enjoys rhythmic seasons * shared gardening * seeks balanced parenting arrangements* aesthetic of domestic sharing
  • Zukra-5 * pleasure of dramatic gaming enjoys center-stage equity * feminine-figures are prominent in the creative * political environments * pleasing designs to adorn the heart * graceful solar plexus * literary and fine arts * appreciation of creativity

For Meena nativities, Shri Zukra is the classic troublemaker because He rules 8 + 8th-from-8th

(also for Kanya nativities, Mangala has the same troublesome function)

Naturally as randhresha Zukra's job is to govern areas of secrecy, non-disclosure, and confidentiality. As the karaka for relationships, Zukra prefers the relationships to have a quality of tantric or hidden values.

Naturally as ruler of bhava-3 siblings, workmates, and short-term travels, Zukra supports touring and songwriting but Zukra can also suggest complexities in forming relationships that are short-term, superficial, and businesslike.

Zukra-5 has a romantic, adolescent style of partnering that is focused on amusement, delights, and fun. In Karkata, Zukra also obtains qualities of nurturing, caretaking, parenting, and protectionism.

Mr. Jackson's love of children (Zukra-5) was well known. Zukra's ruler Chandra-12 signals his expressed desire to heal the world by financing children's hospitals Chandra in Purvabhadrapada-12 hospitals. However, the 6-8 shadashtakya angle between a fantasy-mind (Chandra-12) and its tenant a child-centered, game-playing, romantic Zukra shows an imbalance.

Zukra is best suited to relationships between equals. Yet Zukra-5 often replaces the bargaining, equity-seeking balancing of 7-peerage with the adoration, drama, entertainment, celebrity brilliance of 5-self.

Sweets-seeking Zukra in the emotionally conflicted and self-medicating 6th-from-Chandra suggests behavioral addictions or substance addictions (typically alcohol, but other conflict-numbing sweetening practices also)

Zukra rules 3+8 (sudden trouble from secret sex) ++ Zukra rules 6th-from-Chandra

After Jackson's decease from drug overdose, his first wife Lights Out 1968- singer Lisa Marie Presley publically stated that Mr. Jackson was severely drug addicted during their marriage.

Mangala-2 drishti to Zukra while Zukra rules Guru-yuti-Rahu-8 * amplified cycles of birth-and-death rejuvenation *

Zukra-5 = theatre, programming and stage design for musical entertainments, all aspects of design including costume-design * Jackson was a consummate costumer, lyrical writer (5) and touring musician (5 = 3rd-from-3rd). ensemble work, choreography

Zukra-Azlesa occupies bhava-5 = 6th from-Chandra addictions, suggesting that his Zukra-related endeavors such as musical touring (3) required self-medication.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Vrizchika * heavy old secrets * obliged to uncover the camouflaged realities of mass transformation * pressured to regulate the flow of occult identity changes * must explore masked trauma * vital energy compression stress zone = genitals-anus * strictly imposed rules for confidential matters must be respected * must materialize dangerous hidden knowledge * must regulate the threat of disaster * at times, penetration of the mysteries requires great effort * * must work with tightly regulated conditions of emergency * must accept the conventional methods of rigidly slow elder shamans * one must normalize the sustained conditions of proletarian revolution * must engage in continued discovery despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-9 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious paradigm of belief. One must preach the old doctrine, old principles; punitive, unyielding ideologies, cautious, conventional father-figures; tense and fearful religious teachers, chronic rigidity of worldview; heavy legacy pressure against freely chosen convictions. Resistance to new teachings. Preacher's fatigue. Resentment toward changes in catechism. Intolerance for sacerdotal innovation. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as high priest, guru-figure, professor, rabbi, sermonizer, proselyte, Old Believer.

dhana-yoga * Vriddhipathi-11 in 11th-from-11th * earnings from philosophical order and systematic rules

Mr. Jackson was an adherent of his mother's catechism of faith for most of his life. Shani-9 conservative religious views.

Father * Shani-9

his father by Jackson's own tale was violent toward all of his talented children but particularly toward the boys who were perceived as a threat to his domination

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Thula-Vanika * shimmering illusion of balance * craving for trade * mask of fairly bargained contracts * over-reaching arrangements * marvelous deals * exciting culturally-mixed partnerships * mirage of deal-making * extraordinary terms of agreement * fascinating alliances * ambitious diplomacy * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) * shimmering illusion of security * craving for customary rhythms * risky policing * mirage of home and shelter * mask of ancestral belonging to a habitual place * illusory acts of protective defense * over-reaching patriotism * fabulous farms and fisheries * fascinating ethnic routines * marvelous localities * intriguing owned properties * extraordinary cetaceans * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of motherliness, nationalism, loyalty to the homeland, parent-roles, attributes of negotiation, equity-assurance * seeks privilege via advocacy, counseling, adviser-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-6 * (beneficial placement) passion for conflict, remedies * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual arguments, thrilling defense of victims, conflicts, miseries, medicines, servants, accusation, injustices. Craves an environment of disagreement, injustice, misuse. Desires an important role in matters of disease, injury, warfare, labor, unfairness, toxicity * Exciting enemies. Rahu-6 trespasses the cultural boundaries in matters of debt, drugs, slavery, betrayal, exploitation, war. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a victim, a druggist, a litigator, a problem-solver, an abuser, a diseased person, an enslaved person, a relative of the mother's people. Risk-rewarding, boundary-breeching Rahu thrives in Bhava-6 where He finds opportunity in the worlds of crime, war, pharmacy, self-medication, toxicity.
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu * amplified generosity * magnified diversity * exotic beliefs * tricky teachings * opportunistic guides * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inspired philosophy * hypnotic preaching * expansive worldview * inclusive cross-cultural mixing * optimistic about risk

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Meza * dissociates from competitive dominance, incomplete nobility, empty arrival, dissolute conquest, not limited by blood or birth, ignores restriction on innovative movement
  • Ketu in classroom-7 * ambivalent toward agreements * absentee partners * disregards contractual loyalties * disinterested in mutuality * wanders from the middle-balance * irrelevance of equity * surrenders alliances * abandons the usual covenants * ignores advice * delivers incoherent promises * liberation via walking away from negotiations
  • Ketu-yuti-Kuja * surrendered championship, empty actions, disconnected brothers, unsustainable domination, apathetic competition, disability, unfulfilled innovation, impermanent conquest, incomplete birth, spiritual liberation via forward movement
