Feminine Nativities


Asresas ; * Uraga * Azreshasha * Hydra * Aayilyam * Bhujamaghabha

BPL commentary

For Azlesa 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 Uraga, 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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

Budha-ruled Asresas are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators. Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Azresa have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing [Budha] in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place. Hydra-born are natural environmentalists who prefer conversations about motherhood, family meals, ritual worship and holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. As parents, Azlesa bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that the past customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Asresas-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles. They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Azlesa-Naga.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 94

"... this person is careless and unclean about herself and the manner in which she dresses.

  • She is not good-looking but indeed rather homely.

  • She is distinguished by some disfigurement on face or body

  • and is rather miserable and unhappy.

She has a secretive and rather bitter nature

  • and is somewhat harsh and unkind in her dealings with others,

  • where opportunity presents itself.

If she cultivated kindness and tact,

  • her shortcomings might be forgotten by those with whom she comes in contact.

But her attitude and appearance are not conducive to popularity."

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 (QVr age 24) until 2010, when it was finally displayed to the public. According to the 2010 press release, the royal family's reputation guardians had considered its passionate expression as rather too loose and naughty

Prominent Features of the Nativity

  • Dad died of pneumonia when little QV was less than a year old.
  • improbably, Victoria became Queen through her father's lineage.
  • Surya-yuti-Chandra-lagnesha

Pitri-sthana contains Rahu + Shani + Mangala

Rahu in bhava-9 suggests that Dad had outsider identity. Although born to aristocratic entitlement in the line of succession to the English throne, like most of the royal family Edward was a German-English cultural mix (Rahu). With his German mother, he holidayed in Germany during childhood.

Mangala in bhava-9 At age 18 he was sent back to Germany for military education. Edward conducted foreign military assignments for most of his adult life, including nearly a decade in North America.

Shani in Bhava-9 Edward returned to Germany and made a second marriage to a German princess (Victoria's mom). As heirs to the British throne, both Edward and his daughter Victoria had to legally be born in Britain. However, Edward mainly lived internationally.



Surya activates

  • 2-treasuries, face, values-fulfillment, family line
  • 2-genetics, lineage traditions, language, assets, speech, eyes

Unlike today's UK royalty, Victoria was socially isolated. She did very little public service such as charity patronage or presiding over ceremonies.

  • QV was financially subsidized for her genetics (2) + as a reward for her iconic power to represent [Surya] the economic network (11) of the British Empire.
  • Surya in bhava-11 = iconic center of a network

QV's income (11) was supplied by Parliament (Surya ruled by Zukra-10 governance).

  • The legislators paid her purse directly from citizen taxes.
  • There were some weak attempts to limit her royal budget., Yet despite QVs refusal to earn it, her subsidies were not reduced, and her entitled luxury lifestyle was never curtailed.

Languages = 2

QV was well-educated for a woman of her day.

  • As the future Queen of England, British-born Victoria spoke and wrote detailed, 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.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)

Shani-9 drishti to Chandra-yuti-Surya suggests that both of her parents accepted the strictures of public life.


Customary rythms are especially strong with Chandra-Urisha * uttama

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.


  • Mom = Princess Victoire von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld (1786-1861) = the widowed princess of Leiningen.

Mom's culture, role of Language

Brihaspati = languages ++ Guru drishti to Chandra lagnesha

Although lovely and cultured as reflected in QV's Chandra in Rohini-Brahmi, Mom remained socially isolated due to language barriers. Somana-yuti-Surya activates 2-language .

  • Mom was a German widow with two children when she married QV's dad Edward = an indebted military officer 20 years Mom's senior [Shani]. The alliance quickly produced baby Alexandrina Victoria.

Duke Edward died eight months later. Princess Victoire von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld was required to remain in England to protect the potential throne-heir Baby Victoria, upon whom her mother's livelihood depended. Chandra-lagnesha.

  • Mom 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.

Shani-Guru PRESSURE on Mother-and-Daughter

Shani-9 + Guru-7 = drishti into Chandra matrikaraka lagnesha

nichha-Guru-7 parivartamsha Shani-9

  • royal obligation [Shani]
  • materialism to the point of greed (nichha-Guru activates 6)
  • Shani-Meena drishti upon Chandra in classroom-11 imposes responsibilities of age, obligation, scarcity, rules, and restrictions.

Mother's discipline, restriction, depression, possible BPD

As a child, QV inhabited a tightly enclosed environment created by the customs of their small, exclusive social class [Shani]. 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 was said to deeply resent her mother's excessively protective and fearful restrictions (Shani drishti upon Chandra lagnesha). As soon as QV was legally able, she evicted her cloying mother and mother's power-hungry advisor Conroy.

In modern parlance, mom may have suffered from borderline personality disorder, which results in cruelty toward children and is often provoked by a profound fear of abandonment. Victoria's elder sister Feodora also complained about their restrictive childhood, writing that the only times they enjoyed were their brief carriage rides away from the palace.

QV's childhood loneliness would later contribute to her having a large number of children.

Height - Girth

Surya-yuti-Chandra rule 1 + 2 = body-appearance + genetics

  • Shani-9 drishti to Chandra-11 also explains QV's petite height . She stood 4-foot-11-inches tall, in a compact frame, Guru-drishti adds plump and fertile.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • lifepartner-1 = bhava-5
  • Born with Chandra in Rohini-Brahmi, Victoria felt fortunate in the company of her royally born (5) attentive cousin-husband Prince Consort Albert.
  • the union was focused upon the royal entitlements, children, politics (5)
  • Albert and Victoria enjoyed a happy family life by all accounts.
  • Mangala ruler of 7th-from-Chandra occupies 9-royalty with Rahu

Guru-Makara-Draco * nichha suggests a weakness in the husband. Albert had a weak position in the governance hierarchy (Makara) through which he suffered some indignity.

  • No matter his consultant contribution to the discussions in Parliament (via letters) Albert was seen specifically not as a decision-maker, but rather as a noble servant and paramour.
  • As an intelligent and capable man whose abilities were marginalized by his marriage, Albert was naturally frustrated.
  • This weakness -- along with the appallingly unsanitary conditions of their decrepit royal home -- may well have contributed to his early demise.

8th-from-7th-from-Chandra-11 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • lifepartnership-2 = invisible bhava-12
  • although Guru has no companion graha which could normally mean only one husband, both Guru in bhava-7 +++ Guru-7 parivartamsha Shani-9 makes suggest multiple lifepartners
  • As a widow in perpetual mourning, QV developed an intensely sentimental Yet, invisible-to-the-public relationship with the master of her equerry, Ghillie John Brown.

  • Victoria developed a healing relationship with her the master of her equerry John Brown. Because he was a commoner and a rural Scot besides, the relationship was kept out of the public eye. They kept it as quiet as possible, for thirty years.

  • In public, QV was strictly appropriate to expectations of class and rank [Shani], Yet, in private, QV conducted a second lifepartnership away from prying eyes, in secluded, sanctuary environments (12)

  • 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.

In a feminine nativity, Chandra in Rohini-Brahmi requires an attentive husband.

  • John Brown = Balmoral Ghillie and personal attendant was attentive.

Rahu-yuti-Shani * challenges rigid class structures

This cross-class relationship lasted for decades. It ended with Brown's sudden death at his age 56.

  • 27-Mar-1883 grieved the decease of her intimate personal attendant = Ghillie John Brown
  • * Shani-Guru chidra-dasha * Guru activates 7th-from-2nd-from-Chandra = decease of 2nd lifepartner

  • QV's private journals show her reeling in grief .

vyaya-pati Budha-yuti-Zukra-Azvini = aesthetic preference for secluded environments with horses (azvini).

Bhava-12 accepts the drishti of masculine Mangala

  • John 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.

First Child Vicky = 5th-from-Chandra = bhava-3 writing.

eldest child born 21-Nov-1840 Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa

Ketu-Kanya QV's eldest daughter moved far away into a German family at age 17 at a time when travel was difficult.

Despite the state interests of the two countries being in conflict (Kanya) and needing to endure a physical distance for most of their lives, the mother-and-daughter pair maintained a close relationship by letter-writing

Shani-Mangala-Rahu-9 ++ Guru-7 cast drishti into bhava-3 = 5th-from-Chandra, suggesting that QV worked assiduously to counteract Ketu's distancing ++ maintain the connection with her eldest.

QV and her eldest daughter remained close friends throughout life, wrote to each other (3) nearly every day (3)

Mother-and-first-daughter died within months of each other.


Second child Edward VII

7th-from-Chandra = 5 kingship Vrischika

QV suffered a notorious hostility toward her second child and eldest son, Edward Albert. Prince of Wales, Edward VII.

  • Their relationship soured over time, due to the poor public reputation engendered by his entitled, self-indulgent spending and sexual profligacy Kuja-yuti-Rahu-9.

QV's exceptionally long reign (63 years) delayed Rahu-yuti-Shani her son Edward's chance to achieve Kingship, which he patently resented.

  • Although he was the designated heir-apparent, Edward VII was only able to reign for nine years following his mother's death.

Victoria and her husband Albert both accused their son, Edward VII the Playboy Prince of immoral practices.

  • His misconduct was 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 he embraced the sexualized (Kuja) camp lifestyle of that profession.

Azlesa can't let go

  • Disliking her son's character, QV retreated from public life following the death of Albert.
  • Yet, true to Azlesa nature, QV was unwilling to step aside in order to enable her son's kingship.
  • For nearly 40 years, Edward Albert slowly fumed as the ever-in-waiting heir to the throne.

Kuja-yuti-Rahu * Edward VII = Destructive Rage

Edward Albert's rages at his mother's blocking [Shani] manipulations (Rahu) only emerged after her death.

  • When he assumed power, Edward VII 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 QV's most passionate expressions referred directly or indirectly to her beloved faithful servant.
  • Edward utterly detested John Brown and wreaked havoc upon Brown's imagery even long years after Brown's death.

9th Child Leopold

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


Chandra activates 3rd-from-Chandra

  • QV wrote every day, to many correspondents, and voluminously. She bound all of her children, siblings, and many other relatives closely to her Azlesa via frequent, detailed, emotional letters of correspondence.
  • QV's extensive hands-on management facilitated discussions, transactions, correspondence, subtly but effectively exerting significant control over the royal houses of all Europe

3rd-from-Chandra = documents, reports, correspondence

Rahu + Mangala + Shani + Guru cast Drishti into Ketu-3

Over the course of sixty years, largely preceding the advent of electrical communications, Her Majesty wrote a massive compendium of literary correspondence,.

  • The exchangers were primarily herself with her adult children and their widespread European families.
  • But equally important was a busy daily exchange to-and-from various politicians (5) and power-brokers in Parliament (5).

Victoria demanded and received copies of all important documents from Parliament.

  • Her allies in government Guru in bhava-7-Makara = widespread and mainly enduring.
  • Although Albert was believed responsible for much of her policy-drafting and memoranda about pending legislation, Victoria's own writing had influence.
  • Due to her education and wit, QV was able to express her views in a literate and articulate English aristocratic style. She wrote voluminous personal correspondence as well.

nichha-Guru in bhava-7 drishti into the communicative 3rd-from-Chandra = Karkata indriya-lagna.

  • Expanding Guru + amplifying Rahu drishti into 3rd-from-Chandra shows the astounding amount of literary product that QV wrote for both her government partners and for her widespread family.

Victorian Cult of Repression

Shani in Bhava-9 + Shani-yuti-Mangala

cult of belief (9) in sensual repression

  • UK Queen 1819-1901 Empress Victoria-1 was an iconic figure at the center of the Victorian cult of extreme dress coverage.

  • The unifying behavior of the cult idea was to cover up the body with layers of clothing to prevent unseemly sensual attraction * akarshana
  • 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 passionately sensual affair with her tall and handsome Scots manservant. Rahu-yuti-Mangala


Shani Mahadasha * age 47.1 until age 66.1 * 1866-1885

  • having been widowed toward the end of nichha-Guru Mahadasha,
  • QV spent most of Shani Mahadasha in camouflaged condition (8 secrecy)
  • while maintaining the extensive relationship network created by her adult children and their marriages (7 diplomacy, bargains)
  • pursuing her great passion for promoting the interests of herself and her entitled relatives Shani-yuti-Rahu-9
  • continuing to vigorously engage Mangala-yuti-Rahu with her political allies Guru-7 in matters of those policies of Empire which affected her directly or indirectly.
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala much resistance and delay [Shani] of urgent projects (Kuja)

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-9 does not like high-priestly ceremonies.

  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition * magnified championship * exotic pursuits * tricky innovation * opportunistic brother-warriors * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of dynamic energy * hypnotic attack * passion for engines * craves hot movement * invasive force of cross-cultural mixing
  • Rahu-yuti-Shani * amplified public formality * pragmatic exaggeration * exotic social conventions * slippery hierarchies * tricky rules * opportunistic elders * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of strictly lawful structures * regulated risk-taking * hypnotic ascent to privileged rank * normalized cross-cultural mixing

Internationalism of personality-1 + communications-3 + children-5

  • 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 Albert was able to master English in his 20's, several years after their marriage.
