BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine 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.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Zukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani-Yamya, Purva-phalguni, or Purva-azadha may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"a physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

Vimala Yoga Chandra-8 rules 12

Henry was married to Catherine of Aragon for 24 years. His marital drama of divorces, annulments, and beheadings did not begin until the onset of the volatile Mahadasha of Chandra-8 .

Ketu in Rohini is ruled by Chandra-8 and Ketu occupies less than one degree of distance from Zukra. In turn, Chandra rules bhava-12. A highly protective Vimala Yoga ensures that Henry would never become the victim of his own dangerous intrigues. (He was However, the victim of his own appetites - see Shani-6).

Chandra-8 needs to be emotional engaged with secrets, intrigue, danger, upheaval. These were the daily fare of Henry's life and yet he was ever protected; unlike the average courtier who was likely as not to be murdered, he himself killed many but he died of disease

Chandra in Revatika * Henry was an accomplished singer of Renaissance music and a distinguished musician (Revati). His lute playing skill was admired. He arranged to have the best musicians of western Europe brought to his palaces for providing courtly entertainments and for the instruction of English performing artists.

  • Mangala in bhava-2 * drive toward values lineage, pursuit of treasuries, energized face-speech-song,aggressivecapitalization-banking, storage, assets, conservation, acquisitive conquests

Kanya-Kuja-2 ruled by Budha-12 suggests persistent arguments and procedural conflict in regard to the continuation of the genetic lineage. Henry was notoriously aggressive in pursuit of a male heir to legitimize his family's claim to hold the royal entitlement.

Kuja in 7th-from-Chandra-8 indicates that although Henry was by all accounts happily married to Catherine of Aragon for 20 years (and unhappily for another 4 years after Zukra mahadasha ended) the issue of issue became the breaker for marriage-1.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Henry's first wife Catherine of Aragon was his elder brother's widow. She was five years elder to him, often ill and usually unhappy. They were married for 24 years due to Shani's powers of endurance and the social fact that divorce in those days was forbidden by law (Shani).

Henry was wildly ambitious for acquiring properties (4).

Seeing opportunity (Rahu) he launched a swift offensive against the widespread and wealthy monasteries. Henry quickly appropriated the vast deeded lands of the Church, including the essential food-producing farmlands attached to monasteries, and transformed those tracts into royal property. According to the Church authorities, Henry's ambition to usurp power via surreptitious means was illicit.

Mangala ruler of Rahu occupies 11th from Rahu.

The gambit was successful. His re-possession campaign hugely enriched the coffers of the King. The land-grab also dis-established (4) the foreign Roman church authority and re-established (4) England's food-source independence for the next 500 years.
