BPL commentary

To whom much is given, from whom much is expected.

For Uttarabhadrapada births of a masculine valence, the influence of rigid, chronological, lawful, enduring strictly structural sober serious systematic elderlydurokaraka Shani can considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Uthratadhi, elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, age and time, resistance to change, status hierarchies, social class barriers, large organizations, public opinion, bureaucracies, regulatory requirements, legal systems, and corporate or institutional officials may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Andromeda. Their purpose is multi-dimensional structural integrity and species resilience.

Responsible Charity

Meena-Antya pada 1-2-3-4 represents Shani's rulership of 11-systems ++ 12- distant worlds, imaginative vision. Guru and Shani are mutually neutral, suggesting that personality distortions are uncommon with Andromeda-born. Pada 1-2-3-4 have an extraordinary capacity to carry responsibility for others.

Uttara-bhadra born are often found in economic, ecological, community linkage, and networking roles which structurally engage invisible understandings, distant realms, interior visionary comprehension, and enduring patience.

Themes of maintaining continuity between systems, containment of inner understanding over time, and sustaining of proven profitable patterns may characterize Ahirbudhnaya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttarabhadra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 85

"...most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."
