BPL commentary

For Chitra - Tvastri births of a feminine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Mangala-ruled paradigm of Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Vismakarma ladies are blessed with direct, muscular physical and sexual energy. They are often found in environments where beautiful designs plus physical agility are valued. Chitrani drawing skills often place them into garment-making and decoration. They typically excel in competitive , vitality-focused fields such as fashion modeling, cinematic acting, musical performance, choreography and dance, and athletics which emphasize balanced movement.

Kanya pada 1-2 expresses Kuja's rulership of 3-writing-commerce + 8-secret transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Budha's Writing skills may emerge in pada 1-2. Kanya-Chaitra are often found in media communications and commercial aspects of design work, where their pro-active process management is distinctive. Trust and relationship integrity may be growth-challenging.

Tula-Vanika Pada 3-4 emphasizes Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, treasuries + 7-contracts, alliances. Shukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills rise in pada 3-4 due to the pleasant attractions of Shukra-Mangala. Ladies often enjoy considerable wealth via face, voice, marriage, and family lineage. In music, arts, and partnership-craft, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. In the arts, entertainment, beauty, and design industries, their contractual deals are often luxuriously beneficial.

Themes of competitive movement, agile beauty, dynamic design, and financial equity may contextualize Chaitra's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Chitra-Spica.

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

"An expensive and luxurious person.

  • One who is fond of clothes and beautiful surroundings and revels in them.

  • She spends much money on jewels, perfumes, cosmetics

  • and her taste in these matters is expensive .

She likes to change costumes several times a day

  • and always look like an animated fashion plate .

Variety is the spice of life to this woman

  • and she will be inconstant and fickle in love affairs,

  • having many during her life and marrying often.

Many actresses, musicians, artists and opera singers have Chitra rising.

If she is born on the day before the New Moon, with this asterism rising,

  • she will have a husband who will die four years after her marriage to him

  • and she will never have any children.

If she is born with Chitra on the Rising Point on the day before the Full Moon ,

  • she will be immoral and promiscuous in her love affairs

  • and will support some of her lovers or spend money on them

  • and she will die in poverty."

BPL commentary on Shil Ponde's prognosis for Chitra ladies: the traditional language of "die four years later" should probably be updated to "may be divorced several years later"



The MOTHER of Queen Elizabeth-1-Tudor = Queen Anna Bolina = Anne Boleyn = 2nd wife of Henry-8- Tudor

Mom was beheaded after her miscarried pregnancy of a male heir for Henry-VIII


Purportedly a lover of Elizabeth-I, the debonair Sir Walter Raleigh claimed a broad swath of lands in North America for his Queen.

Under Walter Raleigh's sponsorship, some of the earliest English settlements were founded at Roanoke, Virginia Colony, in 1585.

Although the earliest attempted North American settlements failed miserably, Elizabeth-1's support for Raleigh's colonial mission marks the beginning of the British Empire.

like her kingly father, Elizabeth used the conventional political-control tools of the day, including

Surya in bhava-1 rules 12 imprisonment, entrapment, involuntary isolation

PARENTS 6/8 mismatch - the curse [Rahu] and the drama (Singha)

Mom had been an attendant to Henry's first wife of 24 years, Catalina de Aragon. Normally Henry's child with a servant of his wife would have been relegated to a minor position in the court with no rights of inheritance.

However, Henry was increasingly fraught by paranoid suspicion (12) that he was cursed (Rahu-12) to never have a male heir. On the possibility that his child with Catalina's lady-servant might be a male, King Henry VIII secretly married Anna Bolina (ET's mom).

That marriage made little Elizabeth a legitimate heir to the Tudor throne. However, Henry was already in the throes of the paranoid insanity over the curse. When ET was about three, Anna Bolinar miscarried a male baby, and Henry murdered her.

  • bhava-2 treasuries
  • Thula controlled by [nīcha] Shukra-1

  • ET remained Married to England . She referred to the nation as "šll my husbands"
  • spinning the propaganda of the Virgin Queen became an essential requirement of retaining her governance authority.

  • ET began her reign at age-25. Despite constant threats to her life and power, ET kept her regnancy for an astounding 44 years.

Literacy, Numeracy, Administration, Mercatilism

With atmakaraka uttama Budha extremely prominent in bhava-1 yuti Shukra-yuti-Surya, while the vargottamsha [uchcha] Budha also occupies Kanya svamsha, the literate and administratively minded ET understood financial accounting.

  • ET corrected Henry's gross overspending mess
  • Her financial acumen and planning capability = seen via the Kanya-1 cluster. ET and her advisors slowly stabilized Britain's financial position within the European banking networks

Along with the staunchly pragmatic Shani 10th drishti upon Chandra-8, her nativity describes a businesswoman who could, and did, rectify [Shani] the flamboyantly bankrupting royal style of her indulgent, artistic, financially irresponsible father.

Beloved of Merchants, patron of Writers (like Shakespeare and Marlowe)

  • Under her magisterial guidance and using a crafty definition of legalized piracy (nichha Shukra) ET's generation of merchants rose to a position of commercial [Budha] dominance of the burgeoning world sea trade = Budha-yuti-[nīcha] Shukra piracy trade
  • With the money flowing into the middle classes, the famed Elizabethan culture of drama, fashion, architecture, fine arts, and music arose under her reign

  • Aesthetic of undervaluation.

Identified with peer women

  • Elizabeth had many key learnings from her elder sister Bloody Mary, from her mistreated cousin Mary Queen of Scots, from her distressed and murdered mother, and countless other women who exemplified the misogyny and devaluations of the day.

Several well-placed partners, including the sea-war pirate Sir Francis Drake

Shukra produced a calculated drama of interpersonal and sexual relationships along with much manipulation [Budha]

Marriage negotiations as a foreign-policy tool

Shukra-Kanya [nīcha] achieves [nīcha-bhanga] due to

Of course, as the slogan goes "first the nichha, then the bhanga". nīcha-bhanga graha are difficult in the beginning.

Shrewd use of match-making as a bargaining chip, at no cost to herself.

  • ET craftily used offers of marriage as a method of deal-making.
  • Seeking advantageous treaties and military alliances, she beguiled many suitors, including her former brother-in-law Phillip-2.

At various times before her bout with disfiguring smallpox, ET was fully or partially engaged to numerous eligible bachelors of the European royal families.

  • While the offers of betrothal were being considered by the respective diplomat corps, England received special concessions from the countries of her potential husbands.

However, ultimately, her plan was to preserve her own power within her own person.

  • ET had no intention of surrendering her entitlements. (Surya certainty)
  • ET is often quoted to have declared, "If I follow the inclination of my nature, it is this: beggar-woman and single, far rather than queen and married".

Her refusal to marry was begrudgingly accepted by her councilors, who understood the propaganda power of the cult of Divine Virginity that had grown around her.

Beauty Marred by Disease 6th-from-Chandra-8

  • Hers was the scarred and pitted face that launched a thousand ships.

Shukra-Kanya * [nīcha] 1 occupies 6th-from-Chandra-8 trauma, shock, sudden force

* Chandra-Shukra bhukti * Shukra-Kanya-1 rules 2-face-hair ++ Rahu-Return

  • 1562 (ET age 29) Only four years into her 44-year reign, ET' suffered a nearly fatal smallpox infection.
  • The dreadful disease produced severe skin pocks.
  • Her natural ginger-brown hair remained only in patches (including lost eyebrows).
  • Along with her splendid wardrobe of exquisite damask dresses and yards of pearls, the once youthfully beautiful ET had to wear heavy lead makeup and gaudy red-dyed sheep-wool wigs for the rest of her life [Chitra]

For for sailors, farmers, and those who worked in nature, the pocks showed vitality because they proved a triumphant survival against a deadly disease. Yet, ET wrote that she found them hideous-looking. [[nīcha] Shukra]

  • For the next 40 years until her decease age 69, ET covered the terrible pock marks with a thick layer of the lead-based cosmetic paste used by actors in the theatre.
  • She wore brilliant red wigs of dyed sheep-wool to cover her nearly-bald head.
  • Eventually, ET died of lead poisoning from a combination of sources, including leaden dinner plates and the face-paste.

Myth of the Virgin * power of [nīcha] Shukra-Kanya-1 in D-1 ++ D-9

In the culture of the mid 16th century, ET's status as an unmarried parthya would have normally made her a victim of exploitation and likely put her in a socially devalued role such as prostitute or slave.

However, [nīcha-bhanga] Shukra exalted her to one of the most famous queenly roles in history.

  • ET was able to use her unmarried status to great advantage
  • Her spin-doctor publicists developed a mythology around her as a magically pure Virgin Queen.
  • (Yet, as history records, her personal life was quite active.)


duro-karaka (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

Shani activates Makara 10th-from-Chandra = leadership

  • Shani-Karkata * overburdened routines * class-conscious ethnicity * habitual conformity * must accept social responsibility for emotional stability * old defensive structures * structural compression upon stomach * strict security systems * proletarian cultural roots * must continue orderly sustainable settlements * rigid resistance to change of the folkways * regulates farming-fishing habits * must care for elders * aging local infrastructure * cramped shipping ports * ancient roadways * agricultural drought * dark dwellings * often stuck in a rut * protective policing routines * scarce domestic resources * maintainer of old seasonal rhythms
  • Shani in Bhava-11 [svabhava] (beneficial) * steady time-structured achievements * must maintain connections * sustained effort toward realistic aims * must regulate economic linkage * cautiously conventional accomplishments * class-conscious social network * chronic pressure on nerves-skin * few friendships * limited revenues * works hard for earnings * resists new associations * supports lawful distribution systems * accepts marketplace rules * salary worker fatigue * rigidly dutiful socialite roles * elders maintain community responsibilities


Durokaraka Shani in Bhava-11-Pushya

rules Makara-5 = 10th-from-Chandra = leadership ++ 7th drishti from Shani-11 into 5

vidya-pati-5 = Shani in bhava-11 owns-and-aspects 5 * economic gain from intelligent governance, endurance

  • England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1-Tudor (ET age 25) 15-Jan-1559 crowned Queen at Westminster Abbey in London * Chandra-Shani bhukti * Shani-11 responsibilities rules 5-royalty ++ Makara-5 = 10th-from-Chandra

  • ET's royal credentials were authentic but her gender and vulnerability to political intrigue were considered to mark her as a short-term ruler. Nevertheless, Shani is robust as ruler of 5 + 6. She refused to marry, and effectively conquered her enemies 6 - both inside and outside the court - producing a 44-year reign.

Shani rules

Often sick, and regularly attacked, but always recovered and resumed governance

Shani plumbum contributes to the conditions of death = 10th Shani drishti into 8

  • ET suffered long-term lead poisoning (8 = poisons, Shani plumbum = lead)
  • The eventually-fatal toxicity came partly from her lead-based (Shani = lead) "ceruse" theatrical-grade cosmetic face-paint. ET used the heavy paste to disguise (8) the profound pock-marks on her smallpox scarred face.
  • The other major source of lead-poisoning was the leaden dinnerware used by the royal court.
  • Shani in Bhava-11 karkata nourishment casts drishti into 5-entertainments, royalty, entitlements

Endures the Mortal Threats * Longevity even in Dire Circumstances

ET survived the daily dangers of an improbable 44-year reign during an era of

  • paranoid suspicion

  • massive court-ordered beheadings
  • no-trial-needed imprisonment with torture for accusations of treason

Emotionally traumatized Chandra in classroom-8 occupies 10th-from-Shani

  • As a child, she quietly endured repeated sexual abuse by her guardian Thomas Seymour.
  • As soon as his wife died (who had been kind to ET) this offender was summarily beheaded.

Disinherited and then reinstated on the whims of her powerful but volatile dad whose own relationships were insane (Surya with [nīcha] Shukra-1). Prone to severe sickness.

Yet, Elizabeth survived multiple traumatic events and died age 69 = An amazing longevity for a woman handling vast power in a sea of chaos, intrigue, and crime.

Mutual drishti between Guru and Rahu

* Shukra-Rahu bhukti = murder of her mother by her father

Rahu in bhava-12 over-reaching politics of desapparacidos

  • ET was considered personally responsible for 750 killings at her own request over the course of her 44-year reign.

Yet, she herself remarkably avoided becoming a victim of these barbarian political behaviors.


kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)


  • Ketu-Kumbha * sociably dissociates from distribution webs * odd friends * walks away from regulated systems * incomplete nexus * empty profits * dissolves knitting * severed connections * not limited by conventional community * disarrayed ecologies * ignores restriction on futurism * releases a purple cloud of knotted linkage into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial) * ungrounded enemies * disregards criminal boundaries * absentee maternal relatives * dissolves limits on medications * ambivalent toward exploitations * disinterested in disagreement * disregards accusations * ignores the physicians * walks away from sickness * abandons suffering * vacuous conflicts * liberation via surrender of guilt-and-blame * unless other graha in 6, may prefer to live free from mother's relatives


Ketu in classroom-6 Ketu is not afraid of death. Ketu-6 is also not afraid of enemies.

ET ruled England for her entire adult life, foisting off pretenders and predators with patience, long observation [Ketu] and - when the time arrived -- legal acts of criminal harm (6).

  • Shani rogesha occupies 6-from-6 (bhava-11) suggesting that ultimately the peasantry were ET's greatest friends.

Ketu co-rules Vṛścika

  • the peasantry worshipped ET as a saintly Virgin Qwene
  • ET's more realistic privy councilors found this implausible but popular mystique to be useful in preventing uprisings.

ET handily eliminated each and every one of her persistent adversaries, who typically underestimated her. Shani-11 friends occupies 6th-from-6th and Shani owns Ketu-6.

  • Ketu in Ari Bhava dismisses enemies while largely avoiding imprisonment. ET appeared exploitable but she was not, due to Ketu-Shani.

Elizabeth lived in a world of commonplace beheadings [Ketu]

  • Her own mother was executed by her violent father (Mangala-9) .
  • Ketu in classroom-6 can become somewhat inured to crime, and ET seemed to accept the horror of her mother's murder as a fact of life.
  • She herself was held responsible for 750 individual killings and the intentional, enforced starvation of Ireland.
