Feminine Nativities

BPL commentary

For Mriga-shiras 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 Mangala-ruled paradigm of Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, and provoke.


Kuja-ruled Mriga-shiras ladies tend to be physically fit, agile, energetic sportswomen and dancers. They are often found in politics, entertainment, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage. They have a particular intuition for crowd-driven movements such as fashions, market pricing, and economic trends.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate markswomen, able to handle weapons if necessary. Natural engineers, they often have expertise in manufacturing, metalwork, and sewing. Agrahayani ladies may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an exceptionally acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha-Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Shukra-Kuja attraction. Pada 1-2 pursue gracious arrangements, match-making, and brokerage in secluded environments, such as the private bedroom or in distant lands. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, Urisha pada-1-2 of Mriga have a stronger propensity toward guidance (9) and governance roles (10).

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are vocal socialites skilled in conflict intervention, and natural ministers of aid. Pada 3-4 may focus on community activism, economic profits, and service to the wounded (whether the wounds are physical, mental, or emotional).

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Mrigashira-Invaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 91

"Usually this person is born in a wealthy family or at least well-to-do.

  • She will be brought up in a religious atmosphere

  • and will be deeply religious herself.

She is an entertaining and interesting speaker

  • and will participate in women's club activities

  • and other social enterprises .

If she adopts a public career, she will be successful and honored.

She is fond of beautiful clothes,

  • perfumes, and jewels,

  • and dresses elegantly and in good taste.

Her favorite color is green."
