Feminine Nativity

Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta

BPL commentary

For Mula births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlewomen are ready to sacrifice everything in an ongoing act of complete and devastating spiritual surrender. Those born under auspice of nakshatra-pati Nirriti may feel intense yearning for emptiness, evacuation, annihilation, and deconstruction of the superficial personality which opens the gateway into utter rebirth..

Akasha-born feminine beings may find empowerment in acts of purgative spiritual healing. Often their gifts express in physical healing when the mechanism is purging, profound cleansing, expulsion, or eradication. Purification at the root is their specialty.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 98

"... very little happiness through the life ...

  • due to the secret and destructive thoughts of the native

  • and her proud and stubborn nature.

To understand this is a help.

  • But a determined effort must be made to rectify it.

The fault lies entirely within herself,

  • her nature preventing her from being happy in any relationship.

She will have many love affairs and trouble through them.

If she marries, she will be unhappy

  • because of her inability to compromise

  • and her husband will die in seven years from the time of the marriage.

She has a weak constitution and her health will be uncertain,

  • due again to the destructive thoughts

  • which she harbors continually."

QUOTATION 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. The individual seldom begets a child, and even if a child is born he becomes wayward and rebellious, a burden to the family. In this situation However, there is a possibility of the individual acquiring substantial wealth , especially if he is denied children."

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership expectations


  • bhava-11 Thula controlled by nichha-Zukra-10
  • QE never married, which was an essential requirement of retaining her governance authority.
  • Mula ladies often prefer to remain unmarried, which among other advantages allows their power to remain undiluted
  • QE was a victim of sexual abuse in childhood
  • Observers reckoned passionate - and quite likely expedient - relationships with Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Frances Drake.

  • Mangala in bhava-6 * drive toward confrontational quarreling * pursuit of active service * vigorous attacks against adversaries * defeats illness * overcomes injury * wins accusatory litigation * dynamic military strategy * competitive criminal vitality * aggressive medical treatments * energized conflict

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

Often sick and regularly attacked - but always recovered and re-joined the fight

Vimala Yoga prevents imprisonment, entrapment, involuntary isolation

  • QE 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 while avoiding imprisonment = Vimala Yoga

Powerful yuvati-pati-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

Budha * jamayah-karaka (sibling) * sandeza-karaka (message) * zisya-karaka (student)

  • Uttama-Budha yuti fortunate dharmesha Surya = exceptionally strengthening.
  • Add Vriddhi-pati Zukra for financial advantage + highly-placed friends.
  • Career supported by a number of well-placed partners, including Sir Francis Drake

Mental analytical argumentative skill * uttama-Budha-10

DDuring an era known for its female-hating, witch-burning misogynies, Elizabeth was one of the best educated women in western Europe.

A superb student (uttama-kumara) QE watched and learned.

As a ruler with many competitors vying for her throne, QE exemplified the political virtues of her day: she was charming, shrewd, and occasionally ruthless (Mangala-6; Shani-8).

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

History records the detailed financial calculations of a very strong and prominent uttama-Budha-10. Aided by a regally authoritative Chandra in Bharani-Yamya -5, QE helped to place a cold, broke, and unstable England on a course of speedy financial recovery. Her methods succeeded in righting the national economy -- albeit her use of piracy would be considered as wildly illegal in modern times.

Ace Accountant

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 lliterate and administratively minded QE understood financial accounting.

Incisive and accurate, QE corrected Henry's gross overspending mess

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. QE and her advisors slowly stabilized Britain's economy, which had been devastated by overspending during the reign of her father England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII

UndeUnder her magisterial guidance and using a crafty definition of legalized piracy (rogesha-6 nichha Zukra in 10 lawful social order) QE'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

lagnesha for Dhanuzya - Haya

Hamsha Yoga

  • Guru-Dhanuzya * mulatrikona * much philosophy * wide worldview * doctrine of inclusive diversity * broad scope of guidance * humanistic ideology * permission to preach * expands the range of beliefs * multiple theories * generous priests * global beneficence * many sacred teachings
  • Guru in bhava-1 * * dig-bala * much vitality * philosophical personality * permission for unrestricted action * generous disposition * numerous identities * expands the scope of competition * * many cheerful sporting activities * believes in birthright * expansive aura * extra height-or-girth * embodiment of tolerant cheer * a patron of personal benefit * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be an expander-philanthropist-benefactor

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 * * svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wife)

  • Zukra-Kanya * nichha * appreciation of service -or- victimization, likes logical argument, attracted to laboring classes, servants, and animals * accepts unbalanced agreements * prefers exploitable partners * pleased by pain relief * enjoys humility, aesthetic of remedies for injustice
  • Zukra-10 * seeks pleasure via regulated order * enjoys regulatory authority * socially prominent contractual agreements * reputation for gracious balancing * institutional finance * respects feminine-figures * harmonious governance * aesthetic of beautiful structures * appreciation of order * in a husbandly nativity, wife-figure may hold an elite social position

Beauty Marred by Disease

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

Like many during her era, QE suffered hair loss and facial pockmarks from smallpox. lost her hair at age 29

For some people, the pocks showed vitality because they proved a triumphant survival against a deadly disease. Yet, QE wrote that she found them hideous-looking. (nichha-Zukra)

For the next 30 years until her decease age 67, QE 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 bald head.

Eventually, QE died of lead poisoning from the face-paste.

Nichha-bhanga Kanya-Zukra

  • bhava-10
  • +++ yuvati-pati + karmesha uttama-Budha
  • +++ dharmesha Kanya-Surya.

In the culture of her day, QE'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, the nichha-bhanga Zukra exalted her to one of the most famous queenly roles in history.

QE was able to use her unmarried status to great advantage

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 +++ Chandra in Bharani-Yamya

Financial savvy Chandra in Bharani-Yamya also allowed her to cook the books for benefit of her love interests. QE used national tax coffers to fund the commercial ventures of Sir Francis Drake, mainly his very profitable shipping piracy

Zukra produced 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 (endurance) * jara-karaka (years)

Shani rules Makara 10th-from-Chandra = leadership

  • Shani-Karkata * heavy old routines * habitual conformity * must accept social responsibility for emotional stability * old defensive structures * structural compression upon stomach * strict security systems * proletarian cultural roots * must maintain 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
  • Shani in Bhava-8 * steady time-structured transformations * must impose order upon dangerous environments * may fear the advance of inexorable change * must regenerate while maintaining the system * cautiously conventional initiations * tense renewals * resists surgery * fear of eruptions * chronic trauma patterns * pressures on the hidden mechanisms of sexual-reproduction * fears revelation of mysteries * pushback against emerging new cycles * disaster fatigue * * martial law * dry rigidity limits rejuvenation * frugal in-laws * elders preserve undisclosed assets

Durokaraka Shani in Bhava-8

Endures the Mortal Threats * Longevity even in Dire Circumstances

QE survived the daily dangers of an improbable 44-year reign during an era of paranoid suspicion, massive court-ordered beheadings, and no-trial-needed imprisonment with torture for treason,

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 QE) this offender was summarily beheaded.

Disinherited and then reinstated on the whims of her powerful but volatile dad (Surya volatile with nichha-Zukra in 10). Prone to severe sickness. Yet, Elizabeth survived multiple traumatic events and died age 67 = An amazing longevity for a woman negotiating the constant hazards of her time.

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

  • Magha fiery 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 * extravagant games * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of  brilliant risk-taking * fabulous speculations * glittering political power * seeks privilege via celebrity roles
  • Rahu in bhava-9 * passion for philosophy, preaching * in svabhava 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 (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

Ketu rules Nirriti rising nakshatra

  • 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-3 * eccentric communications * disinterested in daily chat * writes on foggy abstract topics * dissolves messaging boundaries * implausible prophecy * wandering discussions * can handle esoteric information * irrelevance of normal mental narrative * abandons management tasks * dismisses the standard explanations * disregards conventional discourse * unless other graha in 3, may prefer to live free from younger siblings

Ketu-ruled Mula is not afraid of death

Elizabeth lived in a world of commonplace beheadings (Ketu) Her own mother was executed by her ambitious father (Rahu-9) . She herself was held responsible for 750 individual killings and the intentional, enforced starvation of Ireland.

Wracked by smallpox, QE lost her hair at age 29 * Mangala-Shani bhukti * Ketu-3 ruled by Shani in 2nd-from-2nd hair.
