Feminine Nativities

Arudra-Orion * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra-Orion births of a feminine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Rudhira, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from Orion. Their purpose is to communicate the passionate animal vitality via stormy, turbulent, swaying, exciting gesture and signal.

Passionately Communicative

Rahu-ruled Arudra-Orion ladies have stormy temperament. They may be considered capricious, inconsistent, and demanding. Often they are found in sensuous, writhing, twisting, fascinating roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage.

Depending upon Arudra-Orion's social environment, their seductive appeal may express as private or public When professionalized, Tiruvaatira-born may be stage performers of high excellence, who send waves of desire (Rahu) through an audience numbering one or one-million.

Rahu-ruled Arudra-Orion displays the animal intensity of the storm. Arudra women often are blessed with the capacity to regenerate their physical vitality and recreate their persona.

Arudra-Orion women are often the diva type who are sensuously clever (Rahu) verbally quick, and impatient with those who are less communicatively responsive. Thiruvaathira-born may be gifted in handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of seductive imagery such as photography, costume, and arts-of-style (Budha).

Themes of stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra-Orion's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra-Orion.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 93.

"A critical fault-finding disposition is apparently conferred ...

Her disagreeable disposition,

coupled with a sarcastic manner and speech,

  • makes it difficult for other people to tolerate her.

Although she is extremely clever in her conversation

and many people will be impressed by her speech,

  • while still disliking her.

She is extravagant to the point of wastefulness,

  • but on herself rather than on others,

  • although at times she will be grudgingly generous

  • to those with whom she comes in contact.

She has weak lungs and should be careful of colds and coughs,

  • as there is a tendency towards tuberculosis."
