Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha-Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatrapathi Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romance, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a private, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician according to the strengths of nakshatrapathi Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

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

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."


neurologist Sigmund Freud, M.D., in midlife

Distinctive features of the Nativity

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

Vimala Yoga

  • Surya-Meza * uttama * Suryaya * the supreme one * brightly charismatic confidence of Center-stage Surya radiates through the vital competitive dominating rashi of Mangala
  • Surya in bhava-8 * center of revelation and emergence * intelligence for trauma healing * confident rejuvenation * brightly transformative * focus on discovery * initiatory entitlements * eye on occulted mysteries * sparkling center of the secrecy-drama * father may be hidden or disguise

Dad = Jacob Freud. Dad was (apparently, Rahu) an impoverished Hasidic wool merchant reputed for his prowess in Torah Study. Bharani-Surya suggests a money-changer in undisclosed circumstances (8).

Dad was married three times = Surya + Rahu + Zukra.

Uttama-Surya + Rahu + Zukra would suggest that behind Shri Rahu's fascinating camouflage, dad was an effective broker (Zukra) of deals in commodities and currencies far beyond wool. Also Dharmesha-9 = Zukra in bhava-8

Surya-Meza * uttama rules Simha-12 = Vimala Yoga * protects both SF and his dad from untoward implications of bhava-12 such as imprisonment. Surya indeed helped FS to escape the Nazi death camps (12) despite four of his sisters being executed there.

Surya rules 4th-from-uttama-Chandra = substantial education, focused on research (12) and expressing private intelligence (Simha-12)

Dad was married three times and the family moved often before SF turned five, reflecting the Mangala drishti into bhava-4. However before SF entered formal schooling, the family settled permanently in Vienna, and then the effect of the Mangala-Kanya-1 drishti into 4 childhood home was likely the typical cultural argumentation about the meaning of texts.

Head = uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu-8

Baby Sigismund was born with a membrane shielding his face and head called the caul (caput galeatum).


Surya-yuti-Zukra + Surya-yuti-Rahu -8-Meza accepts the 8th drishti of argumentative, treatment-planning Mangala-Kanya-1

andhrabhava-8 contains Azvini-Rahu (medical) + Azvini-Zukra (medical) + Bharani-Surya (financial)

barrier-bending, taboo-twisting , rejuvenating, discovery of new style of medicine focused on sexual trauma == new therapeutic medical treatment modality of psychiatry

Rahu rise and fall

During his own lifetime, Freud was an intellectual celebrity (uttama-Surya high intellect), Yet, SF's antagonists were also empowered due to rogesha Shani-10.

Rahu-amplified solar ego and the (eventual) collapse of psychoanalytic theory

Due to a lack of supporting scientific data that could provide confirmatory proof in psychiatric clinical practice, Freud's ideas (Surya ideation) lost most of their vigor during the end of the 20th century.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Urisha * uttama * moolatrikona * comforted by rhythmic historical tonal values
  • Chandra in Rohini * mulatrikona * comforted by lavish appreciation * protectors of luxurious domiciles * needs sensual caretaking

  • uttama-Somana-yuti-Budha * Emotionally communicative * sensitive to sibling figures * sheltered by workmates * calmed by a chatty cohort * needs to evangelize * makes empathetic gestures * soothed by conversation * feels like a messenger

As the eldest son of a youthful woman who had married an elderly husband, Sigismund had an especially close relationship with his mother Chandra in classroom-9. Mom was a Muse and Guide (9).

SF's mom Amalia stayed by his side for the great majority of her son's life. She died when he was 75 years old, and SF himself died only seven years later his age 83.

Dhanayoga from Chandra + lagnesha Budha

  • Mangala in bhava-1 * forward fighter * muscular champion * competitive winner * drive toward performance vitality * embodied action * primal sexuality * pursuit of progress * direct movement * physical engineering * thrusting vigor * dominating personality * pushy * dynamic innovator * energized conquests * athletic body

Mangala in bhava-1 rules

  • 8 = sustained conditions (Shani) of upheaval, disclosure, unmasking, transformation * unending Emergencies, a permanent state of exploration
  • 3 = 8th-from-8th = reports, announcements, writing, publication, communication, explanation

Mangala's active agenda is typically a challenge for the Kanya nativity due to His association with sexual intrigue, secrecy, taboo ++ Mangala drishti into Rahu in bhava-8 further enflames SF's drive toward penetrating environments of taboo (Rahu)

Mangala-1 Kanya the critical investigator


Kuja-1 rules 3 = courage

When told that his books were being publicly burned, Freud said "what progress we have made! In the Middle Ages they would have burned me; now they are content to burn my books ". Luckily Freud's Vimala Yoga protected him from those who would attack taboo-breakers.

  • 1860 * following frequent house-shifts before SF's age-5, the Freud family moved to Vienna. SF would obtain his complete education in Vienna, a world capital, and conduct his entire psychiatric practice there, consorting with many of the leading intellectuals of his day. Only at the very end of life, during Ketu--Rahu bhukti, when SF was secreted out of Vienna into London to avoid certain death in the Nazi regime, did SF leave his beloved Vienna.

Tragically, after Freud died safely at his home in London via physician-assisted suicide, during the remainder of his Ketu Mahadasha, his four elder sisters perished in the Nazi extermination labor camps.

The meetings of his Vienna circles of physicians treating nervous disorders were reputedly great smoke-fests with all the wise doctors smoking like chimneys. SF was rarely seen without a cigar or some type of smoking device in his mouth or hand.

Budha-Zukra bhukti cancer diagnosis due to smokinng

In 1923, SF was diagnosed with malignant epithelioma (mouth cancer) from the smoking. Yet, SF did not stop smoking, suggesting a profound addiction. Rahu smoke.

Zukra-yuti-Rahu unusual love relationships

SF produced six children with his avowed wife Martha,. Due to Zukra-yuti-Rahu-8, SF also conducted a lifelong affair du coeur with Martha's younger sister Ms. Minna Bernays . Dr. Freud's nativity shows Zukra with a fiercely entitled Bharani-Surya and a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting Azwini-Rahu.

Challenges with (former) students

After years of shared intellectual and psycho-medical inquiry, the attitude and understanding of Memories Dreams Reflections 1875-1961 Carl Jung regarding of the structure of the subconscious mind began to diverge from Freud's viewpoint,

Jung split from Freud's group in 1912 during Freud's intensely polarizing, accusative, complaining catalysis experience Shani-Mangala bhukti. Kanya Mangala is effective for criticizing ideas but very unhelpful for criticizing people, and Jung had simply had enough.

Freud held a prominent position in the professional assemblies of his day.

Although Shani in Bhava-10 elevated his public visibility and increased his workload, SF would have experienced that classic mix of creative fame (5) along with criticism and complaint (6) which typically marks the Shani Mahadasha for Kanya natives.

Shani-Mithunaya is however a yogakaraka ruler of 9+10 from SF's Chandra-Urisha -9 lagna. His overall experience was dignified and even his detractors in Vienna were respectful in their criticisms. It was an age of brilliant social scientific theorizing, and SF was a celebrity in the world of paradigmatic new ideas. In general, most intellectuals were willing to consider the plausibility SF's conceptual claims, even if they were offended by his methods.

It was only much later, toward the end of the 20th century, that psychoanalysis was seen to be scientifically untenablle.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Meza-Arya * shimmering illusion of championship * craving for superiority * exotic use of dominating force * mask of competitive action * mirage of first-arrival pioneer * over-reaching urgency * extraordinary muscularity * mesmerizing forward movement * unusual athleticism * fascinating conquests * marvelous warriorship * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of heroic action * seeks privilege via innovator-roles

  • Rahu in bhava-8 * passion for secrets * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual secrets, recycling, rebirth, reinvention; rejuvenation. The Chandala in 8 desires a special, important, therapeutic role in transformative, hidden knowledge, confidential, revolutionary, catastrophic role. May be the secretary (secret-keeper) of a powerful individual or group. Opportunistic in-laws, inheritance, alimonies. Exciting, ambitious family of the lifepartner (in-laws). Rahu-8 trespasses the cultural boundaries of undisclosed assets, dangerous secrets, emergency situations. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a tantric initiator, disaster manager, keeper of dangerous secrets, identity-changing healer, or holder of secret empowerments.
  • Rahu-yuti-Surya * amplified ambition for center-stage roles * magnified confidence * passion for exotic display * trickster with dramatic flair * opportunistic father * creative pursuit of social mobility * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of exceptional intelligence * thrilling political genius * hypnotic charm * seeks privilege via bright celebrity * sparkling center of cross-cultural mixing

Protected by Vimala Yoga, due to Surya rules-12 occupies 8, Freud paid little attention to the Nazi terror (8) surrounding him, until it was almost too late. June-1938 camouflaged escape from Nazi Austria * Ketu-Rahu bhukti * Rahu in bhava-8 secrets

His European professional standing as a thought-leader and professor allowed Freud and many of his extended family to escape to London under dire threat. However, at age 83 and in extremely poor health, Freud died a year after arrival in London, via physician-assisted suicide during Ketu-Rahu bhukti due to unbearable pain of his cancerous jaw, Sept-1939. Bhava-8 = conditions of exit from mineral shell.

When Jews were being aggressively imprisoned and exterminated in Austria, SF's friends and colleagues facilitated his undisclosed movement to London (8 secrets). They were hoping that, although their adored teacher was already suffering from advanced cancer of the tongue, SF's move to greater physical safety might help him to continue writing.

With much help under terrifying emergency circumstances ( 8), Freud was removed to London during Nazi exterminations. He was able to finish several books albeit these were written by assistants using his famous name uttama-Surya-pride. His books were published in London by A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf.

Using assistants for writing and transcription, Freud was able to finish two more books during Ketu-Rahu and Ketu-Guru bhukti. Vimala Yoga protects Freud from the horrible fate of torture and death in Nazi prison camps which befell many of his family members, including four of his sisters.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Thula * justly dissociates from negotiation * wanders away from compromise * eccentric alliances * abandons agreements * apathetic trades * surrenders trust * ignores restriction on match-making * releases a pale pastel cloud of fair deals into the misty abyss

Often, Ketu-2 indicates a disinterest in making any second marriage, even when multiple graha yuti-Zukra might indicate several important marital-type relationships. Also dhanapathi Zukra in bhava- 8 + uttama-Surya-yuti-Rahu tends toward secrecy in regard to conditions of the second union, if any.
