BPL commentary

For Magha births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, 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."


unfinished portrait of Abigail Adams at midlife

Biographical events matched to Vimshottari Dasha

Abigail Smith married her first cousin John Adams in Quincy Massachusetts in 1764. She was 19; he was 28. She bore six children and managed their various homes in several states and foreign nations (during John's diplomatic foreign service assignments). During her husband's repeated and extended absences, she managed their family home with working farm.

AA's family was the first to live in the new, unfinished Executive Mansion .in the new federal capital of Washington D.C. (This building was much later first called the White House by POTUS-26-pair Whitehouse Restoration 1861-1948 Edith Carow Roosevelt ) In 1812 after the Adams Family was long gone, the British Army would burn this house almost to the ground.

Her second child became POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams .

POTUS-02 Thoughts on Government 1735-1826 John Adams' nation-building work enforced many extended absences. They stayed in touch by letter-writing. Over the bhukti of 40 years, this pair of splendid writers created the most important body of literary correspondence of the USA Revolutionary Bhukti.

Unlike the wealthy southern slave-owning plantation growers POTUS-01 Revolutionary War George Washington and POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson , Abigail and John were (much much less wealthy) northern descendants of the Puritan settlers.

Along with a deep and abiding patriotism, the marriage partners shared a moral abhorrence toward human slavery.

Abigail's political intelligence, philosophical insights, and direct guidance to her husband show the scope of her equity in her mate's career and her vital role in founding the new nation.
