Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativities

Magha - Pitriya

Agadash - Ajjha - Karman - Vutatma - Anvastaka - Kosthagara


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.

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 due to their special combination of Ketu's witness perspective with Surya's absolute certainty of purpose.

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. Her qualities of detachment and her uniquely 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. "


ASA in failing health, age 66, painted by Gilbert Stuart, c. 1810 CE.
