Feminine Nativities


Chotthi * Vayu * Nishtya

BPL commentary

For Svatika 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 paradigm of Nishthya, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus. Their purpose is to broker agreements and balance the interests of multiple ambitious stakeholders.

Social justice, personal power

Rahu-ruled Svatika ladies tend to be fascinating figures. By skillfully mixing and trading with different folks, Svatika ladies build exotic new exchange relationships. They are often found in policy organizations and government agencies, where their social equity work is distinctively multi-cultural. Their roles include trader, exchanger, negotiator, deal-maker, broker, marriage-matcher, alliance-designer, and other balancing activities that engage two mismatched sides within one functional agreement.

Svatika represents Rahu's desire to amplify Zukra's quest for harmonious agreements. Rahu challenges cultural boundaries. The mix-master may skillfully combine unusual agents and mismatched agendas in order to obtain a rebalanced status. Similar to Shataviskaka, the Svatika-born are mixed-system orchestrators who may take direction from Otherworldly sources. The character of Rahu is determinative.

Due to their Rahu-gifted ability to think outside the box, Svatika-born may realize previously unthinkable opportunities for diplomacy and fair exchange. Their success is noted in negotiation, trade-deals, and bargaining in commodities, ideas, or services. In politics, Nishthya ladies may be associated with social, ideological, financial, or physical integration of previously hostile or excluded participants. Vayu-born graciously mix people and environments that were once segregated, gracefully pairing various ethnicities, religions, nations, or individuals of differing practice.

Their primary pursuit of a social justice agenda is not entirely idealistic. It is ultimately motivated by their desire to obtain privilege by facilitating partnerships to enhance opportunities for trade and exchange.

Themes of opportunity, fascination with appearances, and acquisition of privilege may contextualize Svatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Svatika-Chandra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 97
