Masculine Nativities


Apa-bharanishe * Varni

BPL commentary

For Bharani births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, diplomacy, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani-Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī-Yonī, or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Yamya, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

Guidance provided by instructors from the civilizations of Apis. Their purpose is acquisition of treasuries, carrying of beautiful objects , and preservation of values across the generations.

Burdened Banker Busy Bee

Shukra-ruled Bharani masculine-figures are the Money Guys. Yamuna-born are often found in the worlds of banking, valuation, capital markets, currency-trading, mints and coinage. Connoisseurs of pricing and aggressive deal-makers, they vigorously seek acquisition of precious objects. In addition to their financial abilities, due to their intuitive understanding of sound-and-color values, Bharani males may also pursue careers in music and arts. Most Bharani men can sing beautifully.

The harmonious arrangements of Apa-bharanishe may be lovely even while they vigorously compete for dominance. Their expertise in the fields of preservation, containment, and collecting may extend to wines, perfumes, fine textiles, works of art, and any commodity which may capitalize or increase in value. Like all Shukra-governed births, they must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

Themes of competitive acquisition, precious sounds and song, and investment in cherished values may contextualize Bharani's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Bharani.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 79

"A very vital character,

  • a quality which quite often leads this individual into all sorts of trouble

  • because other people are apt to be jealous, resentful and antagonistic to him.

The morals of this man are not above reproach .

He will be distinguished in many cases by some slight physical defect

  • on the lower part of the body,

  • that is below the waist."
