Feminine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a feminine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlewomen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority often leading to impatience with those less quick-witted .

Articulate and pro-active in their messaging style, Jyeztha are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from autobiography to committee reports, Kita-born ladies find a ready audience on topics of a hidden, undisclosed, or forbidden nature. Jyeztha women are also natural trauma healers, investigative journalists, forensic scientists, and detectives.

Ketta-born ladies wield a penetrating ability to explain complex human sexual and psychological narratives. They are often found in powerful messaging roles, where secret information is revealed by a skillful shifting of the interpretive lens.

Due to nakshatrapathi Bantering Budha, the skills of Zakradaivata include all of the commercial fields plus psychotherapy and recovery work, self-help writing, and training of healers. Thriketta-born may also be found in the verbal realms of transformative criticism and promotion of mystical renewal.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha-Kita

QUOTATION: Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

"...independent self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

  • If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family, she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

  • She is careful and canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life,

  • occupy a very influential position

  • and be greatly respected."

Mrs. Frances Shand Kydde

Somana-yuti-Ketu can indicate psycho-mental mental disorientation of the Mother and eventually the self.

Following the historic pattern of British royalty, Charles and Diana allowed their children to be largely raised by servants so that her mothering behaviors became disconnected. In the famous BBC interview of 1995, Diana admitted suffering from such severe anxiety that she indulged in self-cutting (Ketu chidrakaraka cutting), gorging, bulimia, compulsive harassment behaviors, and attempted suicide. She developed bulimia as a body-dysmorphic response to emotional ungroundedness and incoherence of the primary sheltering-protective relationships (mother, husband).

Ms. Frances Kydd, the mother of Princess Diana, is popularly considered to have suffered from Borderline personality disorder. This assessment is due partly to the mother's early abandonment of her daughter and mom's repeated verbal attacks upon her daughter's life choices and behaviors (which can be classic BPD symptoms). At the time of her 1997 fleshdeath, Diana was suffering her own BPD episodes and in a no-contact protection from her very unprotective mother.

BPD is typically multi-generational and the primary pattern is betrayal and abandonment by the mother-figures. The public facade may remain intact, but the private reality is that the mother figure becomes an attacker. Diana and her siblings were abandoned by their mother following a contentious custody legal suit in which Diana's mother's mother testified that Diana's own mother was incompetent and should grant custody of her children to their father. Thus the maternal grandmother appears to demonstrate BPD symptoms as well.

MARRIAGE emotional support partnership * 7th-from-Chandra-4

  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * thrill of muscular action * excited competition * energized pretense * dynamic desires * masculine force joins opportunistic ambition * potential for aggressive pursuit of privileges

Mangala-yuti-Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra indicates marriage partnership. 29 -July-1981 wedding ceremony was an international media event, attended by celebrities and dignitaries from all the world's major nations. 750 million people watched their wedding on international television.

The privileged couple produced two beautiful children, led charitable campaigns to improve lives of the less fortunate, took magnificent holidays, and otherwise appeared to enjoy an entirely charmed life. Yet, as the media tale of their marital woes unfolded, it became clear that Charles and Diana were miserably unhappy in their -- and had been so almost from the beginning. They worked and traveled separately -- although as Diana said they "had the same job".

Masculine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni * Bhagadaivata * Prakphalguni * Arjuni

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.

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."
