BPL commentary

For Purva-azadha births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.

Inspirational diplomatic grace

Feminine births in Purva-azadha carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Purvazadha ladies are often dramatists, musicians, and entertainers. Often, they sing beautifully and play stringed instruments. They love to travel and serve as a muse to creative partners.

Feminine births in Asadhash tend to benefit from the sweetness and relationship orientation of Zukra. In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and finance, they may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and graceful fashion models. Purvazadha are often lyricists and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments. Their tonal arrangements may appeal to everyday folks. These ladies are self-indulgent and pure of heart.

Brihaspati represents their typically generous husbands and their characteristic faith. Typically Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often expands the range of inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance which leads to natural states of balance and pleasure. Yet, Zukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.

Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Purva-azadha

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 99

From Planets in Signs and Houses , by Bepin Behari (p. 149):

"Unless the planet is well fortified by association with or the aspect of benefics, the lord of Eight in the fifth house is inauspicious for children and the mental equilibrium.

Elizabeth handily eliminated each and every one of her many adversaries. (Mangala-6)

Vimala Yoga prevents imprisonment, entrapment, involuntary isolation

in an era of paranoid suspicion, massive court-ordered beheadings, and no-trial imprisonment with torture for treason, Elizabeth 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 popular political behaviors. She was

many enemies but all overcome * ruler-of-12 Mangala in Ari Bhava overcomes enemies whilst avoiding imprisonment = Vimala Yoga

Powerful yuvatipathi-7 uttama-Budha-10 yuti Dharmesha-9 royal Surya helped her to establish a number of powerful alliances which promoted her personal goals (Kumbha) whilst she escaped the typical marriage entrapment of a 16th century woman

yuvatipathi-7 in bhava-10 is always an excellent auspice for public recognition and a successful leadership career based on good advisors. Career supported by a number of well-placed partners, including Sir Francis Drake

During an era known for its woman-hating, witch-burning misogynies, Elizabeth was one of the best educated women in western Europe. She watched and learned (uttama-Budha). As a ruler with many competitors for her throne, Elizabeth exemplified the political virtues of her day: she was charming, shrewd, and occasionally ruthless (Mangala-6; Shani-8).; England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1 began her reign at age-25, and kept her regnancy in flourishing conditions for an astounding 44 years.

History records the detailed financial calculations of a very strong and prominent uttama-Budha-10. She helped to place a cold, broke, and unstable England on a course of speedy financial recovery albeit her methods would be adjudged illegal in modern times.

With atmakaraka uttama Budha extremely prominent in bhava-10 yuti Zukra-yuti-Surya, while the vargottamsha uttama-Budha also occupies the economic 11th navamsha, the literate and administratively minded Queen Elizabeth understood financial accounting.

Incisive and accurate bookkeeper = Atmakaraka uttama Budha. Along with the extremely pragmatic Shani 10th drishti upon Chandra-5, her nativity describes a businesswoman who could, and did, rectify (Shani) the flamboyantly bankrupting royal style of her indulgent, artistic, financially irresponsible father.

Her financial acumen and planning capability, seen via the Kanya-10 cluster, helped to stabilize Britain's economy -- which had been devastated by overspending during the reign of her father England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII

Under her magisterial guidance and using a crafty approach to "legalized" piracy (rogesha-6 nichha Zukra in 10 lawful social order) Elizabeth's generation of merchants rose to a position of commercial (Budha) dominance of the burgeoning world sea trade = Budha-yuti-nichha-Zukra piracy trade

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka


Hamsha Yoga

  • Guru-Dhanuzya * mulatrikona * much philosophy, broad worldview, doctrine of inclusive diversity, humanistic guidance, expands the scope of belief, multiple theories, many sacred teachings
  • Guru in bhava-1 * dig-bala * much vitality * jolly personality * generous disposition * numerous identities * much jovial competition * many cheerful sporting activities * believes in direct action * expansive aura * extra height-or-girth * embodiment of jovial cheer * a patron of generous optimism

Often sick and regularly attacked - but always recovered

Elizabeth (see paintings) had a radiant and quite reddish sense of magisterial presentation due to lagnesha = Guru in bhava-1 * Hamsa Yoga* dig-bala in lagna combined with regal Mesha-Chandra-5. Both Guru and Chandra in fiery rashi receive the blinding fiery rays of ambitious Simha-Rahu-9. She was literally brilliant.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, likes logical argument, attracted to laboring classes, servants, and animals * prefers exploitive, unbalanced arrangements * pleasures of medication and toxic pain relief * enjoys humility, aesthetic of remedies for injustice
  • Zukra-10 * pleasure of regulation, enjoys lawful, socially iconic, feminine-figures harmonious ability to govern and direct * pleasing designs to adorn the upper legs, knees, calves, for overall skeleton * financially visible equity, appreciation of order, legislates justice
  • Zukra-yuti-Surya * balanced roles in drama, appreciation for political display, theatrical negotiations, self-focused arrangements, radiant bright beauty * self-reflexive bargaining, sweetly confident entitlements, enjoys politics, negotiating father-figure, intelligently focused on trades, arrangements, contracts * arrangements according to father's choice or self-will
  • Zukra-yuti-Budha * * sweetened messages * gracious explanations * singing and songwriting * articulate negotiations * talkative sister-figures * pleasant conversations * bargaining for business * sibling-cohort communicative arrangements * youthful beauty

Zukra rules Purvazadha rising nakshatra

Rogesha Zukra * Hers was the scarred and pitted face that launched a thousand ships. Zukra-Kanya * nichha-bhanga + Surya-10 uber-high visibility

Like many during her era, England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1 suffered hair loss and facial pockmarks from smallpox. For some people, the pocks successfully represented a triumphant survival against a deadly disease, but Elizabeth wrote that she found them hideous-looking. She wore a thick layer of lead-paint theatrical makeup over her bumpy complexion and a bright red wig to cover her bald head.

Typical of Purvazadha with their sensitive blood, She died of lead poisoning.

Nichha-bhanga Kanya-Zukra occupies bhava-10 yuti uttama-Budha and Kanya-Surya. In the culture of her day, Elizabeth's status as an unmarried "parthya" woman would have normally made her a victim of exploitation and likely put her in a socially devalued role such as prostitute or slave. However, the nichha-bhanga Zukra exalted her to one of the most famous queenly roles in history. She was able to use her unmarried status to great advantage and her "spin-doctor" publicists created a mythology around her as a magically pure Virgin Queen. (yet as history records, her personal life was quite active) Of course, as the slogan goes "first the nichha, then the bhanga". Nichha-bhanga graha are difficult in the beginning.

rogesha-6 nichha-Zukra-10 also allowed her to"cook the books " for benefit of her love interests. England-Queen 1533-1603 Armada Elizabeth-1 used national tax coffers to fund the commercial ventures of Sir Francis Drake, mainly his very profitable shipping piracy

a calculated drama of interpersonal and sexual relationships along with much manipulation (Budha) and disregard; for conventional boundaries of commerce (Ketu-3).

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Karkata * old routines, old defenses, pressured stomach, imposed protection, must shelter with scarce resources
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious transformations. One must slowly, inexorably change the old order. One must regenerate while always maintaining the system; cautious, conventional discoveries; tense renewals, fear of emergencies, chronic trauma patterns; hidden features of sexual-reproduction; heavy legacy pressure against free discovery of mysteries. Resistance to new identity. Disaster fatigue; martial law. Resentment toward changes in partner's behavior. Extra responsibility for the impecunious family of the lifepartner. In-laws contribute little. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as surgeon, tantriki, concealer, mask-maker, emergency regulator.

Disinherited and then reinstated on the whims of her powerful but volatile dad (Surya weak and volatile with nichha-Zukra in 10), and prone to severe sickness, Elizabeth survived multiple traumas (Shani-8).

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Magha magic * Rahu-Singha * nichha * shimmering illusion of charisma * craving for attention * extraordinary entertainments * mask of radiant confidence * over-reaching, unique intelligence * marvelous drama *   fascinating entitlements * illusory flash of brilliant gambling and games* seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of  brilliant risk-taking, fabulous speculation, political power, celebrity roles
  • Rahu in bhava-9 * passion for philosophy, preaching * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview. Rahu-9 desires a thrilling, important guidance role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy, indoctrination. Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any).

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Kumbha * dissociates from distribution webs, incomplete economy, empty profits, dissolute systems, severed connections, not limited by community, disarrayed ecology, ignores restriction on network linkage, applies linkage to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-3 * absentee sibling, off-topic communications, disinterested in daily discourse, dissolved messaging boundaries, disregards conventional discussions, eccentric or esoteric modes of writing, irrelevance of the mental narrative. One abandons the management tasks, dismisses the standard explanations, walks away from the usual descriptions.

Wracked by smallpox, QE lost her hair at age 29 * Mangala-Shani bhukti * Ketu-3 ruled by Shani in 2nd-from-2nd hair. She wore brilliant red wigs for the rest of her life. She covered the terrible pock marks with a thick layer of the lead-based cosmetic paste used by actors in the theatre (randhresha-8 camouflage, poisoning * Chandra-5 theatrical cosmetics).
