Masculine Nativities

Purva-bhadra - Aja-eka-pada - Pegasus


For Purvabhadra births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Aja-ekapada, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues , indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Pegasus. Their purpose is expansion of prosperity = proshtha.

High forehead. The majority of Purvabhadra nativities are wanderers. Universalist perspective. The majority of Purvabhadra are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles. Those born into the paradigm of Aja-eka-pada are often excellent dancers who bring understanding of growth patterns via Posture and Dance r.

[Kumbha - Ghata] pada 1-2-3 expresses Guru's rulership of 2-collections, affluence ++ 11-revenues, friendships. Guru-and-Shani are mutually neutral. Pada 1-2-3 births are found in the overlap between Guru's financial-social expansions (2-11) and Shani's ability to bridge the physical-astral worlds (1-12). Pada 1-2-3 are often involved in large-scale social economic network s which have both a public identity and an invisible private reality, such as international finance or government-corporate aid groups. They can also be social scientific theorists and writers on topics of large-scale social behavior. Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

[Meena - Antya] pada-4 expresses Guru's rulership of 1-embodiment ++ 10-leadership, reputation. Brihaspati activates both Purvabhadra nakshatra ++ Meena rashi, creating a concentrated effect of expansive Saptarishi growth patterns. Pada-4 is less concerned with financial affluence and more attuned to visionary truth. Pada-4 may become leaders in wisdom fields such as divinity, philosophy, spiritual healing, clairsentient understanding, envisioning practices, or ancestor guidance.

Themes of broad scope, theoretical understanding, and visionary imagination may contextualize Ajaekapada's terrestrial experience Applies also to Chandra in Purvabhadra - Pegasus

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 88

" ... high-strung and nervous in temperament .

They are not very strong constitutionally.

They are rather grave and serious in demeanor

  • and are more interested in the discussion of serious topics than in trivial matters.

they belong to the Mental Group and are by no means orthodox ,

  • preferring to arrive at their beliefs through a process of logical reasoning."
