Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

Bhaga = Falgun = Utthram


For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed. (Can be counterbalanced by a cool moon.)

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician of international ability, according to the strengths of nakshatra-pati Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman


from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

" A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride ,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."
