Zravana * Shrona * Hari * Apramaya * Azvattha
For Zra-vana births of a feminine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

The Listener* Shaman
Shravishta ladies are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Orderly personalities who often conduct high-visibility careers, they are dedicated to family life and naturally comfortable with motherhood. Shrona-born often assume caretaker roles in social organizations and at all levels of government. Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Hari-born attend to the needs of mothers and children, often using the slow and indirect bureaucratic methods that might intimidate a less patient leader. Yet in their care it is quietly effective.
Shravana-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Shravana can be music and dance performers. Whether professionally or socially, Sravistha ladies are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing.
Measured, appropriate tone
The primary aim of Apramaya-born is to deflect any unfavorable public opinion from themselves and their family. A secondary aim is to socially structure the regular flow of seasons in the lunar cycle. Thus they are often engaged with the liturgical calendar. Misbehavior is upsetting for them. Shravana mothers bask in the glow of their children and grandchildren's accomplishments. Being a grandmother, or a grand-dame in some socially respected way, is perhaps their most cherished role.
Themes of propriety, politeness, security, seasonal flow, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Sravana's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Shravana

Biographical Events matched to the Vimshottari dasha calendar
UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 was an iconic figure at the center of the Victorian cult of extreme dress coverage, the cult idea being to cover up the body with layers of clothing to prevent unseemly sensual attraction * akarshana * (her Sun in Vrishabha, Zukra = sensual attractions). At the extreme peak of this cult, even legs of furniture such as table legs and piano legs were subject to polite cover-up "dressing" in order to prevent Zukra-type attractions. Meanwhile, Her Widowed Majesty was carrying-on a passionate affair with the Equerry
Prince Albert. Empress Victoria-1 married her German cousin Albert. He was granted no royal or political entitlements beyond "Prince Consort". In her life, Albert served primarily as a co-parent, but also as a protector, guardian, agent of shelter, and security.

| Prominent Features of the Nativity
Victoria's father was an aristocratic military officer. Although he suffered lifelong debt and profligacy, Nevertheless, he was eligible to ascend to the English throne. Victoria improbably became Queen through her father's lineage.
Victoria Diamond Jubilee 1897
Victoria (age 18) in 1837
Queen Victoria (UK) in 1867 (QV age 48)
UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 as a young woman, by the German painter Franz Xaver Winterhalter. This lovely portrait was hidden by the royal family from the time of its creation in 1843 (her age 24) until 2010, when it was finally displayed to the public. According to the press release at the time, the royal family's reputation guardians had considered its passionate expression as rather too loose and naughty
Dad = Prince Edward, Duke of Kent = a hereditary entitlement.
Surya in bhava-7 rules karmasthana = ruler of 10 in 10th-from-10th, suggesting that the Duke may have held more power than apparent, largely due to his negotiating skills, and little Victoria would inherit his bargaining confidence.
Yuvathipathi Zukra-6 occupies 12th-from-7th, weakening pitrikaraka Surya. Dad died of pneumonia when little QV was less than a year old.
The 12th-draining-and-distancing angle that Dad was a foreigner, or one with extensive international residence and outsider identity. Although born to aristocratic entitlement in the line of succession to the English throne, Edward was German-English bilingual (like most of the royal family) He holidayed in Germany and at age 18 he was sent back to Germany for military education. Edward lived in Germany and conducted foreign military assignments for most of his adult life, including hearty a decade in North America.
After making a second marriage to a German princess (Victoria's mom) Edward ran short of funds and returned to Germany. The young family had only been briefly returned to England when dad died.
Surya in bhava-7 = financial, trading, diplomatic,bargaining style of political orientation. Although QV held no parliamentary office and her monarchical powers were reduced considerably during her lifetime, Nevertheless, her alliances throughout the European continent were had ongoing value to the State. One of the strongest arguments for maintaining an expensive traditional monarchy was based in the pragmatic utility of her relationships with other monarchs.
Surya in bhava-7 = international political negotiating intelligence by which Victoria arranged all of her children's marriages into the royal bloodlines of 1800's Europe. Although spread throughout the continent, her widespread children often visited her.
Budha-yuti-Zukra also indicates a masterful undercover social-networker.
Chandra rules-9 obligation to maintain received doctrine, catechisms of religious belief, patrons and patronage. QV was the head of the Established Church for 63 years.
Mom = Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld = the widowed princess of Leiningen.
Mom spoke little English. Although lovely and cultured as reflected in QV's Chandra in Rohini, Mom remained socially isolated.
Mom's marriage to dad Edward, an indebted military officer 20 years Mom's senior (Shani) quickly produced baby Alexandrina Victoria. Duke Edward died eight months later. The princess was required to remain in England to protect the potential throne-heir Victoria, upon whom her mother's livelihood depended.
Mom was a German widow with two children when she married QV's dad. Mom had come to England for the arranged alliance, but never learned English and maintained a German-speaking household. She did not venture outside the palace, did not attempt to communicate with English-speakers, and kept Victoria in her bedroom until Victoria was married.
QV was said to deeply resent her mother's excessively protective and fearful restrictions (Shani). As soon as she was legally able, Victoria abandoned her mother and mother's advisors.
Young QV complained about her smother-mother, at one point imposing a no-contact ban on Mom and mom's primary handler Conroy. In modern parlance, mom may have suffered from borderline personality disorder (provoked by a profound fear of abandonment).
Shani-5 + Guru-3 casts drishti into Chandra = privileged isolation + language, documents, cohort
Mother's discipline, restriction, depression
As a child, QV inhabited an enclosed environment created by the customs of their small, exclusive social class. When Victoria was born, the English aristocratic classes were strictly prohibited from socializing with non-elites. Their lives were circumscribed and inbred. They mainly kept to themselves or visited elite relatives in distant lands.
QV's childhood loneliness would later contribute to her having a large number of children.
Shani drsihti to Chandra-7 also explains QV's petite height . She stood 4-foot-11-inches tall, in a compact frame
languages, schooling, properties
Writing + documents from Guru
QV was well-educated for a woman of her day.
As the future Queen of England, British-born Victoria spoke and wrote fluent elite-register native English as taught by her tutors. In addition to English and German, Victoria was a capable reader of French and Italian, and she could interpret basic Latin documents.
International humanistic Chandra * Chandra rules 9 occupies 11th-from-9
Multi-lingual and multi-cultural in worldview, QV received her mother's German cultural perspective. QV conducted most daily communications in the prestige register of court German. In the government of which QV was the titular ruler, business was conducted in the English tongue and its dialects
Mom spoke only German, as did most of mom's courtiers. Victoria's ethnic German husband mastered English in his 20's, several years after their marriage.
Chandra rules 3rd-from-Chandra documents ++ Guru-3
Victoria demanded and received copies of all important documents (Guru-3). Her opinion (3) and alliances (7) were surprisingly powerful and enduring, due largely to her ability to express her views in a literate and articulate English aristocratic style. Guru-3 shows the astounding amount of literary product that she wrote for both her government partners and for her widespread family. Brihaspati's drishti reaches 7 + 9 + 11 influences equals, patrons, and the whole of empire (11).
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
Chandra in Rohini requires an attentive husband.
This cross-class relationship Rahu-yuti-Shani lasted for decades but ended with Brown's sudden death at his age 56. Brown's death = Budha-Budha swabhukti = bhava-8 * ;QV's private journals show her reeling in grief .
Budha-yuti-Zukra-Azvini-6 = aesthetic preference for communicative relationships with servants associated with horses (azvini). John Brown Balmoral Ghillie and personal attendant,
Bhava-8 accepts the drishti of masculine Mangala ++ 8 is protective via Sarala Yoga. Mr. Brown was reputed to be muscularly strong, gifted in handling animals, direct in speech to the point in bullying Kuja-yuti-Rahu and loyal to a fault. Although Brown predeceased QV by 14 years, QV was buried by her own instructions wearing Brown's mother's wedding ring upon the third finger of her right hand., holding Brown's photo and a lock of his hair in her left hand.Edward Albert Second child = 7th-from-Chandra (1) Vrischika. * Ruler = Meena-Kuja-5 + Rahu-yuti-Shani
QV's first child = bhava-11 friendship. Indeed QV and her eldest daughter remained close friends throughout life and died within months of each other.
However, QV suffered a notorious hostility toward her second child and eldest son, Edward Albert. Prince of Wales.
Their relationship soured over time, due to the poor public reputation engendered by his self-indulgent spending and sexual profligacy Kuja-yuti-Rahu . QV's exceptionally long reign (63 years) delayed her son's Kingship, which he patently resented. Although marked at birth as the male heir-apparent, he was only able to reign for nine years following his mother's death.
Victoria and Albert both accused their son, Edward VII the Playboy Prince of immoral practices which were well documented via his numerous mistresses (Rahu) some from unsavory backgrounds (Shani). Like his grandfather and namesake, Edward had a respected military career (Kuja) and shared the camp lifestyle of that profession.
His mother, disliking her son's character, retreated from public life following the death of Albert. Yet, she was unwilling to step aside to enable her son's kingship. For nearly 40 years, Edward Albert slowly fumed as the ever-in-waiting heir to the throne.
Edward Albert's rage at his mother's blocking (Shani) manipulations (Rahu) emerged after her death. When he assumed power, Edward Albert ordered the destruction of her books, papers, personal effects, and especially her statue-and-medal commemorations of her Ghillie John Brown.
Much of QV's copious writing, painting, and several of her commissioned artworks were destroyed posthumously by her vindictive son, who declared them unseemly. Many of his mother's most passionate expressions referred directly or indirectly to her beloved faithful servant. Yet Edward utterly detested John Brown and wreaked havoc upon Brown's imagery even long years after Brown's death.
Mangala in bhava-5 drishti to 8 + 11 + 12
Although QV's budget, generated from citizen taxes, was challenged many times, ultimately her Kuja + Shani + Rahu-5 in 11th-from-Chandra ++ parivartamsha of Guru+Shani = the recipe which kept her luxury entitlements (5) installed.
Budha rules Mithunaya swamsha
Budha in bhava-6 rules
Guru rules Meena swamsha
Guru in bhava-3 rules
Guru in bhava-3 * Prodigious letter-writer.
QV wrote every day, to many correspondents, and voluminously. She bound all of her children, siblings, and many other relatives closely to her via frequent, detailed, emotional letters of correspondence. Her extensive hands-on management facilitated discussions, transactions, correspondence, exerting significant control over the royal houses of all Europe
QV arranged all of the marriages of her children into various royal houses of Europe. Yet, super-diplomatic yuvathipathi Zukra happens to occupy the ailing, conflicted ripu-bhava-6. QV's ninth and youngest child Leopold was an undiagnosed hemophiliac who suffered epilepsy as well. Leopold died suddenly from that dual condition only two years after his marriage. Guru-3 parivartamsha-empowered drishti to her uttama-Chandra granted nine children living. Yet Guru-nichha suggests there would be many frustrations in matters of children during QV's long maternal life.
Husband's rank and schooling
QV's cousin and husband Albert, a court-educated ethnic German like herself, learned English intentionally after he married QV. Husband's foundational schooling = 4th-from-Guru = Budha in 6-Meza, competitive skills but holding a service rank (6).
dhava-karaka Guru-3(cousin) resides in 9th-from-Chandra = Husband-1 Prince Consort Albert
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani in Bhava-5 rules
Shani Mahadasha * age 42.7 until age 61.7
QV had been deeply involved in the intrigues of government during her Rahu Mahadasha then Guru Mahadasha. Rahu Mahadasha featuring Rahu in bhava-5 started in her teenage years and Guru Mahadasha = Guru rules 5 = ended with widowhood and withdrawal during Guru-Rahu chidradasha.
Shani rules 4-retirement
By the time of Shani-Shani swabhukti, QV had withdrawn into retirement.
QV had a great passion for promoting the interests of herself and her entitled relatives Shani-yuti-Rahu-5 ,
QV vigorously engaged with her political allies Mangala-yuti-Rahu in matters of those financial policies which affected her directly or indirectly.
Parliament regularly balked at her demand for full subsidies, including QV's inherited entitlements of rent-free housing, servants, equerry and carriages, and untaxed lands held by her and her dependents. Aside from the occasional parade, she did little to contribute to public life. Shani in Bhava-5 does not like displays. Although often threatened with de-funding, she made a few friends in Parliament. Shani in Bhava-5 does not like politicians. With funding often threatened by never denied Ketu in classroom-11, her unearned lifestyle flowed without interruption.
Shani-yuti-Mangala much resistance and delay (Shani) of urgent projects (Kuja)
Shani-5 drishti to Chandra-yuti-Surya suggests that both of her parents accepted the strictures of public life. Young Victoria developed a facade composed of pious displays of socially conforming moral purity and sexual restraint Shani-yuti-Mangala which became the hallmarks of Victorian culture.
Yet, under the surface, she was volatile. Mangala-yuti-Rahu ++ Shani.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
Distancing from child-1
QV's eldest daughter moved far away into a German family at age 17 at a time when travel was difficult. The state interests of the two countries were in conflict thus placing considerable distance between Victoria and her eldest child born 21-Nov-1840 Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa
Yet there was a close relationship by letter-writing due to the strengthening effects of Shani-Mangala-Rahu-5 ++ Guru-3 drishti into 5th-from-Chandra, suggesting that QV worked assiduously to maintain the connection with her eldest. Her daughter died only a few months after QV..
