Masculine Nativities

Pushya * Sidhya

BPL commentary

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

For those born into the Shani-ruled paradigm of Vutkrita, 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 from the civilizations of Asellus. Their purpose is the lawful, hierarchically ordered maintenance of the customary folk habits in the place of settlement.

Laws and Customs

Shani-ruled Pushyami gentlemen are often found at the director level of government, corporate, and institutional organizations. They combine the local sensibilities of security-seeking Chandra with the larger structural, legal frameworks of national and international regulation. Deeply patriotic and defensive by nature, Sidhya-born usually remain close to their roots while they obtain respected, socially recognized positions in institutions, bureaucracies, and agencies of government.

Sidhya-born are influential in the world and reputed for their culturally sensitive judgment. Found in all of the Chandra-karaka areas such as transportation, farming and fishing, home-building and real-estate, schools, houses of worship, and parenting, Tishya-born feel close to the land. Yet, they are socially responsible, and usually elect to serve as judges, directors, or other official roles (Shani) that provide an orderly process (Shani) for governance of their place of settlement.

Pushyami may specialize in cultural boundary-protection, making of reserved areas both social and natural, lawful preservation of ethnic practices, and legal recognition for cultural minorities. Tisya fellows are particularly dedicated to environmental protection, land ownership, and property rights.

Themes of parental duty, civic responsibility, patriotism, dignity of the family, and foundational legal protections may contextualize Pushya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya.

Feminine Nativities

Hasta-Savitri * Athram

BPL commentary

For Hasta births of a feminine 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 ladies are often found in the domestic arts, in caretaking and protective roles, or in specialties of nourishment, sheltering, schoolteaching, policing, or local safety. Their purpose is soothing and helping. Typically feminine 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 thus express the tension between the handy busy-ness of mental, detail-oriented Budha versus the emotionally based, calming routines of non-verbal Chandra.

Known for their skillful handwork, Hasta are found in service professions where daily, parental, repetitive talk is engaged in a routine of protective, sustaining care.

Typically Hasta ladies are home-keepers, kitchen managers, meal-servers, and chefs. They can be social workers, home health nurses, protection officers, schoolteachers, and supervisors of caretaking operations. They shelter and school the most fragile, such as the hungry, the sick and injured, the poor, the young, and the elderly.

Themes of foundational welfare, shelter, support, nourishment, and protective service may contextualize Hasta's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Hasta-Savitra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96

"A rather good natured, lazy character with a tendency to bursts of effort.

If work becomes necessary to her comfort,

  • she will tackle any hard task cheerfully

  • and with zest in order to get it done.

But she prefers to be lazy whenever she can.

She is usually buxom in appearance with a rather fat stomach and ample bosom.

A jolly disposition, seldom angry,

  • and quick to forgive any slight or injury or wrong done to her.

She is apt to suffer from chronic rheumatism and piles

and should be careful in her diet;

  • she should never over-eat."
