Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities


Agneya * Riksya * Karthika * Alcyone

BPL commentary

For Krittika 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 splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, 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.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.

Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born gentlemen are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance. Natural dramatists, Riksya-born are brightly idealistic and self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatrapathi Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of Champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius. Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and unique charismatic figures.

Vrishabha - Urisha-pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Zukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatrapathi Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of banking and finance, natural resource conservation, music, wines and perfumes, arts, and beauty. Depending on Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward government positions.

Themes of self-importance, individual entitlement, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Krittika-Pleyades

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Surya * pitri-karaka (father) * jyoti-karaka (light)

  • Surya-Meza * uttama * Suryaya * the supreme one * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the vital competitive dominating rashi of Mangala
  • Surya in bhava-12 * center of Other-Worlds * brightly contemplative * focus on seclusion * invisible light-source provides private guidance * intuitive entitlements * brilliant in research * backroom politics * intelligence for interior prayer * eye on creative imagination * sparkling center of the sanctuary * radiant clairsentient drama * father may be isolated or unavailable

Dad = Leo Blair. Barrister and university law professor. Surya-12 research rules 4-schoolteacher.

Initially Leo Blair was a passionate Young Communist. By the time his son Tony was ten years old., Dad had flipped to super-conservative High Tory politics. Surya-Meza -Bharani sees most political actions as being essential financial actions. The midlife political conservatism would have represented a change in understanding of capital finance.

Ruler of 4 in 12 suggests that while Dad had a very strong personality uttama-Surya-yuti-Budha, Nevertheless, the father's full persona remained somewhat invisible to the son.


Surya in bhava-12 is a very common placement in the nativities of world leaders, who spend most of their time and intelligence engaged in invisible, under-the-table, workings with the leaders of other nations 12 = foreign sovereignties. Surya-Meza * uttama is particularly strong in the private engagement with championship of dominant, conquesting males such as would be Blair's daily fare in the world of international diplomacy.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

  • Chandra-Makara - Draco * comforted by hierarchy * sensitive to class-status * needs ritual ordering
  • Chandra in Shravana-Hari * soothed by careful listening * protectors of undulating shamanic sound * needs customary lawfulness
  • Chandra in classroom-9 * draws comfort from paradigms of belief * emotionally attuned to sacred doctrine * accustomed to priesthood * pious mother * soothed by globalist perspective * feels the pulse of preaching * calmed by a broad worldview * acculturated to principled understanding * needs a familiar catechism * protective patrons * habitually seeks guidance * settled into philosophical roles * undulating convictions
  • Somana-yuti-Rahu * * emotionally expedient * sensitive to exotic folks * risk-rewarding mother * needs exciting opportunities * unconventional parenting style * comfortable in unorthodox environments * undulating desires * craves nurturing * feels exceptional

Sensitive, intuitive Chandra rules Chandra in Shravana-Hari-9


Mom = Hazel Corscadden, an Irish citizen. Rahu (exotic) + Chandra (mother).

Mom's comfortably exotic qualities would have been quietly acceptable Chandra in Shravana-Hari and indeed culturally praiseworthy (9, highest beliefs) in goidelic Scotland. Yet, there is enough distinctiveness to grant her the opportunities and boundary-breeching advantages allowed to an outsider.

Dharmasthana Somana-yuti-Rahu * Conversion of catechism

Dec-2007 doctrinal conversion from Anglican confession to Roman-rite Catholic catechism. * Shani-Zukra bhukti * Zukra rules 6 + lagnesha identity * Zukra parivartamsha Guru = multiple doctrines

  • Budha-Meza * innovative communications * pioneering pronouncement * articulation of dynamic movement * discusses physical experience * vigorous descriptive explanations * growth-challenging conversation * messages about contests * vocabulary of vitality * hands-arms-shoulders send competitive gestures
  • Budha in bhava-12 * narrative of mental sanctuary * talks about quietude * commerce of the hermitage * discusses interior spiritual guidance * speaks from invisible location * instructions on reflective contemplation * detailed descriptions of intimate privacy * diagrams the astral inner terrain * explainer of quiet prayer * imaginative siblings * communication with distant worlds * delivers information about clairsentience * skillfully defines the dreamworld * logical visions
  • Budha-yuti-Surya * amusing explanations * entertaining chatter * central roles in communication * brightly clear descriptions * dramatic enunciation * confidently delivers instruction * articulation of radiant certainty * political messenger * talkative father-figures
