Masculine Nativities

Hasta - Savitri * Athram

BPL commentary

For Hasta births of a masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Pundarikaksa, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Corvus. Their purpose= making secure nests to soothe, protect, and nourish the workers.

Careful handling

Savitra -born fellows are often found in handcraft trades, home-building and real-estate, in caretaking and protective roles, or in specialties of nourishment, sheltering, schoolteaching, policing, or local safety. Their purpose is supporting the local welfare. Typically masculine births in Hasta indicate a comfortable, grounded focus into the home realms including parenting, gardening, and environmental care.

All four pada occur within Kanya rashi. Athram-born express the tension between the handy busy-ness of mental, commercial Budha versus the emotionally based, calming routines of non-verbal Chandra.

Known for their skillful handwork, Hasta are found in service professions where daily communications and family-style conversations are engaged in a routine of protective, sustaining care.

Hasta chaps are socially reliable and available emotionally due to Chandra influence. This nice combination wins them many friends and long-term business customers. Hasta are specialists in customer care. Once they have established a relationship whether personal or professional, the Athram-born values consistency and loyalty.

Generally not risk-takers unless Rahu is prominent in the nativity. Hasta fellows tend to be engaged parents, restaurateurs, home builders, social workers, home health nurses, protection officers, schoolteachers, and supervisors of caretaking operations. Although their own family usually comes first, Hasta are concerned with the well-being of their complete natural and social environment.

Themes of manufacturing and handcraft, local business, housing and shelter, nourishment, and protective service may contextualize Hasta's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Hasta - Savitra

" ...clever, witty, and entertaining.

They like social contacts

  • and are particularly fond of the company of the opposite sex.

When in trouble, go to a Hasta person;

but do not try to pull the wool over their eyes,

  • as they are extremely clever

  • and will see through any deceit

they are very likable and are good company,

  • but never very attractive physically ."

POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce

Rising Nakshatra

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, spacious, 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."


POTUS-14-pair 1806-1863 Temperance Jane Appleton Pierce

Mrs. Jane Appleton Pierce suffered from lingering lifelong tuberculosis and severe depression related to the serial deaths of her father and each of her three young sons. Known as the / Shadow of the Whitehouse / she maintained a state of black-garbed mourning during her husband's entire four-year term of office.

A vigorous schedule of parties and dances was expected of a president's wife during the antebellum days. However, socializing was of no interest to Mrs. Pierce. She stayed aloof in her private bedroom, descending only for a few events. She believed that politics was grotesque and immoral. Her first son had died when FP was elected USA-Senator from NH.

Although she remained a loyal wife - and was credited with the ability to restrain her husband's alcoholism - it seemed clear to JAP that the death of her third and final son was divine punishment for her husband's decision to accept the USA-POTUS job, entirely against her wishes.

However, the Whitehouse social calendar did not grind to a halt. Sensitive to her sickness and her grief, other political wives respected her as a Mater Dolorosa [uchcha-Shukra rogesha rules uchcha-Shani-11] respected by community despite conflicts] The the pre-war entertainments proceeded under their gracious direction.

Despite her unwillingness to perform Whitehouse duties, and despite her husband's overall misfortunes in office, Mrs. Pierce was generally respected by other ladies, especially those involved in the growing Temperance Movement.
