Masculine Nativities


Ohibridna * Uttara-Proshtha-padas

BPL commentary

To whom much is given, from whom much is expected.

For Uttarabhadrapada births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic elderlydurokaraka Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Uthratadhi, elder persons, old rules,rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Andromeda. Their purpose is multi-dimensional structural integrity and species resilience.

Responsible Charity

Meena-Antya pada 1-2-3-4 represents Shani's rulership of 11-systems ++ 12- distant worlds, imaginative vision. Guru and Shani are mutually neutral, suggesting that personality distortions are uncommon with Andromeda-born. Pada 1-2-3-4 have an extraordinary capacity to carry responsibility for others.

Uttara-bhadra born are often found in economic, ecological, community linkage, and networking roles which structurally engage invisible understandings, distant realms, interior visionary comprehension, and enduring patience.

Themes of maintaining continuity between systems, containment of inner understanding over time, and sustaining of proven profitable patterns may characterize Ahirbudhnaya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttarabhadra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 85

"... most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means ,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations



  • bhava-4 plantations, properties, agriculture, parenting, seasonal rhythms, patriotism, defenses
  • Mithunaya messaging, information, commerce contains Ketu-Mithunaya
  • bhava-7 Kanya contains Guru-Kanya. Brihaspati grants GW's height-and-girth, along with a predisposition toward multiple partners [Guru the multiplier] .

Chandra-10 is often a mark of the Two-Person Career

  • 10th-from-7th-from-Chandra [lifepartner] = bhava-1
  • The spouse's professional identity is often inextricably insinuated into one's-own-self

Martha Custis Washington was a wealthy landowner, in possession of numerous profitable tobacco plantations, and owner of many African slaves. Although MCW was a savvy businesswomen in her own right, during her second marriage to GW, her public career was inextricably linked to his personality and leadership roles.

  • Guru in bhava-7would suggest several alliances. Before marrying the widow Martha Custis, GW was in love with a romantic partner
  • GW was engaged to marry his beloved, when the girl's father broke their promise due to GW's poor prospects.
  • Ann's father married his daughter to another man.
  • Tradition has it that GW continued to carry a torch for this lover. It was known in the planter circles the GW continued to visit her on horseback.
  • Ketu-Mithunaya suggests a pattern of severance, decapitation, distancing or disinterest toward the partner.

Although polite society would not have permitted the indiscretion to be mentioned, there is some justification in the nativity for framing Martha Dandridge Custis as the second lifepartner. Lifepartner-2 = Makara-11 governance, economics, friendships, common-cause.

  • GW's marriage to Martha Custis is legendary for its expansive financial and diplomatic support of the Revolutionary cause.
  • Martha Custis may be better understood as GW's second lifepartner = bhava-11 friendship, fundraising, community activism.

Military Career

Trained and effective commanders well before the war, GW and his brothers had served as a longtime professional British Army officers. His brothers were trained in Britain but due to financial constraints following his father's death, GW was trained in the Virginia Colony.

  • During the American revolutionary war against the ruling authority of King George and the British taxation apparatus, GW switched sides [Rahu].

Guerrilla War

The British troops had vastly superior supplies of food, camp shelter, and armaments, of which GW was acutely aware.

Thus GW turned to guerrilla fighting. Guerilla = a style of little guerre that utilizes sneak attacks, secret positions, and espionage. Guerilla warfare relies on the local fighters' acute knowledge of the land and its denizens. Rahu-yuti-Soma

  • By these efforts of the little war, GW was able to discover when the enemy British troops might be vulnerable to surprise attack.
  • Despite the daunting odds against their success, the rag-tag American volunteer army succeeded in overthrowing a hugely more prepared adversary.

Feminine Nativities


Mrigashirsha * Mrigashiras * Mraga * Mruka * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani * Ena-ziras

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.

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-zirasa 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.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate markswomen, able to handle weapons if necessary. They often have an interest in metalcraft. 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."

Martha Custis Washington was a remarkabl exception to the limitations usually upheld by businesswomen of her day. Martha communicated directly with the tobacco brokers who set the prices for her slave-plantation crops to be sold in England. She represented her own business in buy-sell transactions [Mithunaya].

Martha also played a leading role in arranging the finances [2] which made it possible to wage the USA Revolutionary War against the English Crown.

Through her eccentric financial dealings with a-political capitalists [2] who were only interested in a rate of return with no moral constraints, Martha was able to obtain English funding to buy weapons and supplies for the USA war against England.

George Washington's Birthplace Memorial is a replica built in 1931 that is crafted from locally-made clay bricks. It was built to commemorate Washington's birth within grounds nearby.

Washington's original childhood home in the Virginia Colony of British America, on a slave-labor tobacco plantation, may have been built in a similar style then popular with the Planter Families of colonial British Virginia.
