The 1-27th portion called Agha * Magha * Makha * Kosthagara * = said to facilitate a variety of identity change movement of the soul away from the body.

This quick movement during the change of spatial relationship between the body and the perceiving apparatus called soul (seeker, listener) creates a Brightness that is likened to a burning sacred fire.

Trance heat can be understood at metaphorically similar to the experience of atmospheric re-entry that is now understood from the space traffic of various high-powered airborne vehicles coming and going through the Earth's electrical atmosphere.

They do get hot from the abrasive particulate friction and sometimes burn up completely if not properly shielded. It looks like they are just moving through the air but indeed many fields of particulate structure are being penetrated and navigated in order to change levels.

Quick dis-assembly of the particle structure of the protective aura which surrounds the flesh-body and again quick re-assembly upon exiting the trance state to return to normal life perceptions are the special blessing granted to Magha.

In the old books, Magha is likened to a type of death and indeed a trance-state may imitate a very brief and voluntarily entered coma. Its special characteristic is heat generated by the speed of the change in field of consciousness.

  • Applies to nakshatra of radical lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential in determining compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Magha * Pitriya

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting [Rahu] or deeply observing [Ketu] the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are well suited to partner with each other. Rahu-Rahu, Rahu-Ketu, and Ketu-Ketu pairings are found in environments that require irregularity, social non-conformism, opportunism, adventurous excitement, challenge to existing standards, cultural mixing, wandering patterns, and spiritual detachment.

Psycho-socially neutral with Magha * Pitriya

Nakshatra of Mangala * Kuja +++ No-contact Ketu are assigned to share governance of secret-revealing, therapeutically invasive Vṛścika rashi. Mangala prefers to move vigorously and directly toward the goal, while Ketu's pathway tends to be nebulizing and foggy. Nevertheless, certain combinations of Ketu with Mangala can be temporarily yet profoundly healing within a narrative of active distancing, vigorous detachment, and energetically disconnected witness perspective.

Nakshatra of Brihaspati * Brihaspati's ever-expanding realm of inclusive doctrinal understanding can be supplemented by dissolving Ketu, and Guru-Ketu combinations can reflect a theoretically abstractive pair. However, the principled methods of Guru's outreach preaching are typically incommensurable with the apparently aimless disorientation of Ketu. These pairings may have a temporary shared spiritual agenda, but they are Typically, not sustainable.

Psycho-socially uneasy with Magha * Pitriya

Nakshatra of Shukra = Shukra is all about equal matches, pleasures, and partnership. No-contact Ketu the chidrakaraka is all about disconnection, amputation, splitting. This couple is not adversarial. Rather, it finds no mutual point of contact. The Shukra partner seeks harmonious, wealth-accruing unions whereas the Ketu partner seeks pilgrimage, wandering, witnessing dispersion. Low potential for agreement.

Nakshatra of Shani * Shani imposes the rules and Ketu dissolves the rules Generally Ketu folk feel restricted in Shani's fixed-role, orderly environments. Ketu tends to find Shani as rather meaninglessly punitive, purposelessly strict, or uselessly authoritarian. Ketu wanders on.

Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Magha * Pitriya

Nakshatra of Chandra * Ketu and Chandra form an inherently uncomfortable union. Chandra stabilizes, settles, cultivates, harvests, and nurtures. Ketu blows through Chandra's settlements like a dust storm, desiccating the nurturing waters and pulverizing ancestral roots. Chandra the Sustainer can withstand most of Ketu's disconnective effects but even so, Chandra is wary of amputation, decapitation, and root-destruction. This pairing is rare, and when it occurs the Chandra partner may perceive No-Contact Ketu as a nuisance.

Nakshatra of Surya * Ketu and Surya often cannot recognize each other. Surya's brilliant light overpowers Ketu. This pairing is exceptionally rare, and when it occurs the Surya partner may perceive Ketu as insubstantial, unintelligent, or disoriented.

Nakshatra of Budha * Ketu and Budha work at cross-purposes. Budha repeats a script of message delivery that depends on a logical mental process. Ketu is speechless, off-script, non-sequitur, clueless, and ungrammatical. If this pairing is required for some pre-incarnationally planned reason, logically argumentative Budha may express resentment toward Ketu's proclivity toward wandering non-thought.

commentary by Pdt. Pandita David Frawley

Shakti of Magha Nakshatra = Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra

"The Fathers desired, "May we flourish in the world of the ancestors."

One who makes the appropriate offering to the Fathers, to Magha,

  • flourishes in the world of the ancestors.

Magha gives fame that lasts through the generations.

Those born under it seek a high reputation for themselves,

  • a kind of kingly or paternal status."

QUOTATION from Dennis Harness, The Nakshatras: The Lunar Mansions of Vedic Astrology

"Magha means "the mighty one", reflecting strength and spiritual leadership. The great Indian saint, Paramahamsa Yogananda had both his Moon and rising sign in this powerful nakshatra.

Its symbol is the king's chamber or palanquin. The deities are the Pitris, the great protectors and fathers of humanity.

Magha people have a fiery rakshasa temperament with a primary motivation of artha, or material prosperity.

The ruling planet is Ketu which reveals the mystical nature of this asterism. The shakti is "the power to leave the body".

Magha Career Interests:

  • Politicians, lawyers, heads of corporations.
  • Self-employed, business acumen.
  • Historians, archaeologists, researchers.
  • Actors, musicians and gifts in the dramatic arts.

Magha is correlated with the bright fixed star Regulus, the kingly star located in the heart of the Lion."

Agha characteristics

When Magha matches the radical lagna, the human incarnation tends to be rather unusual. Makha folk are more aware than most of the light quantum which form the basis of the particulate nature of reality.

Experts in the nature of Light, they are often what is termed a Wanderer (volunteer helper) who hails from the fifth density of awareness. The specialty of 5th-density consciousness is creative light.

Incarnating into Malkuth (Terra, Earth) via their transfer station in Regulus, the Agha folk have typically come to help raise philosophical awareness.

Their perspective is emotionally detached [Ketu] in their highly philosophical, witnessing personality. Yet, akha is often surrounded by theatrical, attention-getting scenarios due to the radiance of their inner light.

If other features of the nativity show a high level of public visibility, Magha (the Great Ones) may be hailed as royalty or celebrity. However, the ego flattery that may be generated by their charismatic glitter is of little interest to Makha, whose work here is focused on assisting the evolution of human life by demonstrating and revealing the Light of Consciousness.

Dissociative Ketu the Dissolver of Form

Due to their Ketu-ish vision which dissolves forms exposing the formless swirling light-energies behind the curtain of form, Magha are a class of magicians who can transform the public imagination.

They rarely marry and normally exhibit no desire to bear children. They prefet to meditate and contemplate. Yet during the recent age of Meena, there were Makha women who under cultural pressure bore a small number of offspring who were then tended by devoted helpers.


Like all Simha-lagna folk, Makha-born contend with the adversarial effects of Makara the relative 6/8 from Simha. For the Magha nakshatra, the animosity from the anti-change agents of conventional social authority structures can be doubled, because Magha is ruled by the disregarding, anarchic Ketu. A strong placement of Shani within the nativity can ensure sufficient hierarchical legitimacy and protect Magha folk from negative consequences of showing the Light-Truth into a quarantine-darkened Earth.

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso enjoys a splendid placement of [dik-bala] Kumbha Shani-7, which substantially protects his light-display mission against the darkening forces of Shani-agents and grants its own institutional responsibilities. He was the official Head of State for the national of Tibet in exile for many decades. Although pursued by government oppressors, his light continued to radiate without interruption.

They may be perceived as a useless oddball, an eccentric genius, a threat to the establishment, or all of these. To avoid being intimidated by social regulators, it is helpful for the Magha nativity to have a strongly placed Shani

Magha the Fire-Master Magician * brilliant light, but may be misrepresented by Others

One of the primary challenges faced by one born into a Nakshatra of Ketuva = Aśvini-Dasra or Makha or Mula-Nirṛti = that Ketu tends to provide a blank screen upon which others may project their fantasies and desires.

It may be beneficial to meditate upon one's authentic preferences and secure one's choices by writing the choices or speaking the choices.

Without a conscious awareness of the need to ascertain one's own true preferences, there is potential for the natural apathy of Ketu to lead the native into inauthentic choices based on the will of more ambitious, more opportunistic Others [Rahu].

Due to its intensely brilliant solar nature, scattered to the glittering winds by Ketu, freedom-loving Magha nakshatra in the heart of the lion is generally an easier placement for males.

Women with Magha in either radical lagna or navamsha-varga lagna may enter politics in the capacity of a healer, sometimes accepting great challenges to introduce a new political vision (vision = seeing light).

Magha is generally less hospitable for female incarnations during periods of patriarchy.

Magha-Agha-born human males are often respected as mystical magi of a kingly order. Yet Magha-born human Feminine Nativities with their felicitous feline independence of spirit are often accused of being insubordinate. Which (witch) they are.

Magha = priestly, aristocratic attitude; feels entitled to represent the paternal lineage.

Whether Magha-born is male, or female, or somewhere in between, there is a a prominent Spiritual Guide who steers Magha-born toward one's fullest expression of divine genius.

One may choose to assume the dramatic role of a Father, father-figure, patriarch, paternal-parental authority, papa-pope However, the authority if any is spiritually recognized. While one may acquire political radiance, Magha is not normally a political potentate

Patronage from the guru or mountaintop-priest of Fire lineage

Magha = magus, magic, imagery, imagination.

Makha nakshatra has the power to cast light, cast lucidity, cast illusion -- as when looking into a brilliant light such as fire.

Magha can evoke the presence of the Divine in Fires whether earthly fire, emotional fire (Magha-Chandra esp) mental fire, or spiritual fire .

Associated with ritual fires such as the homa and fire sacrifice in all religious traditions.

Magha-born into any gender is well-suited to paternal-pitr-father lineage tasks such as hierophant or elite spiritual teacher

May choose to abandon the fleshbody during advanced meditation or psychic activity; can be counteracted via qualified teachers and anti-scatter (anti-Ketu) grounding-agents.

Fragile as that delicate silver cord is known to be, free-floating Magha should never, ever use drugs or alcohol.

Agadash * Ajjha* Karman * Vutatma * Anvastaka * Kosthagara

BPL commentary

For Magha births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Ajjha, spirit guides, astral beings, pilgrims, ghosts, wanderers, observers, witnesses, awareness of impermanence, freedom from conventions, disregard for consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Guided by the patrons of Regulus. Their purpose is royal patronage of the spiritual fire traditions.

Fire Magicians

Magha gentlewomen may have a cause for which they are willing to sacrifice their own interests. Often there is some acute severance or separation which may be repaired after a long time.

Fervently spiritual yet often unconventional in their behavior, Makha ladies can be socially eccentric. Their special combination of Ketu's witness perspective with Surya's absolute certainty of purpose = a unique personality that defies conventional limits.

Intensely romantic, disregarding of political consequences, and dramatic in their devotion to the ideal, the feminine Agha are typically independent actors and capable of living separately if circumstances demand it.

She is often the only woman in a patriarchal (pitri) environment. This daunting fact, she confidently disregards. Her qualities of detachment + her authentic intelligence may provoke criticism from more pedestrian judges.

Themes of separation, disconnection, abandonment, alienation, escape, wandering, annihilation, surrender, and liberation may contextualize Agha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Magha-Regulus

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 94

"A frank and courageous nature

  • and a charming and interesting character ...

Unfortunately these attributes seem to engender envy on the part of those less fortunately bequeathed.

As a result, this person is subject to barbs of gossip

  • and all through her life has many secret enemies

  • who are jealous of her in one way or another.

this in spite of the fact that hers is essentially an honorable and virtuous character

  • not given to either thought or action

  • which should bring slander or scandal.

She is particularly loyal to her family

  • and will do anything to make them happy.

As a result of his, her actions are often misconstrued

  • and used against her by her enemies."

BPL commentary

For Magha births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Guided by the patrons of Regulus. Their purpose is royal patronage of the spiritual fire traditions.

Fire Magicians

Akasha-ruled Magha gentlemen are distinguished by their rarity and their dissociation from the typical marriage-and-family lifestyle. Like all Ketu births, the Makha masculine figure has less gender polarization and more affinity with cosmic patterns of forgiveness and release.

Generally preferring an unmarried status, Pitri natives are usually aware of their psychic vocation. One understands that the current embodiment, while it be endowed with kingly or celebrity attributes, is intended to serve as a vessel for the Light of Truth.

Although loving beings in the pure sense of permeability and transparency, masculine Makha = most often found in uniquely singular roles that require a certain distancing from conventional relationships. Given sufficient ability to operate within the earthly dimensions, a subtly dispersed light (halo) may be seen to surround the tangible body.

Themes of separation, disconnection, abandonment, alienation, escape, wandering, annihilation, surrender, and liberation may contextualize Agha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Magha-Regulus

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 82

"A proud but not an arrogant nature

  • poised, self-contained and dignified.

This man will command respect

  • because of his quiet dignity of manner and bearing.

His position in his community will be secure

  • and his financial standing sound.

His weakness, however, is his susceptibility to the blandishments of the opposite sex.

He must avoid entanglements

  • which might lead to a loss of dignity,

chidrakaraka Ketu = not much interested in marriage. Ketu Cuts the Cords that bind the material perceptions. Fiery magic. Ketu freely travels about the universes and often disregards fixed dogma.

Magha often prefers a celibate lifestyle. If there are romantic entanglements, one tries to remain as psychically free [Ketu] as possible. Generally eschews marriage.
