Feminine Nativity

Mūla * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlewomen are ready to sacrifice everything in an ongoing act of complete and devastating spiritual surrender. Those born under auspice of nakshatra-pati Nirriti may feel intense yearning for emptiness, evacuation, annihilation, and deconstruction of the superficial personality which opens the gateway into utter rebirth..

Akasha-born feminine beings may find empowerment in acts of purgative spiritual healing. Often their gifts express in physical healing when the mechanism is purging, profound cleansing, expulsion, or eradication. Purification at the root is their specialty.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 98

"... very little happiness through the life ...

  • due to the secret and destructive thoughts of the native

  • and her proud and stubborn nature.

To understand this is a help.

  • But a determined effort must be made to rectify it.

The fault lies entirely within herself,

  • her nature preventing her from being happy in any relationship.

She will have many love affairs and trouble through them.

If she marries, she will be unhappy

  • because of her inability to compromise

  • and her husband will die in seven years from the time of the marriage.

She has a weak constitution and her health will be uncertain,

  • due again to the destructive thoughts

  • which she harbors continually."
