Masculine Nativities

Azwini * Dasra

BPL commentary

For Azvini births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Ketu-ruled Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings,, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing intuitively.

"and now for something completely different"

Innovating Observer

Akasha-ruled chaps express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the observant, nebulizing filters of Ketu. Dasra fellows are famed for their pioneering inventions in medical, scientific, or technological fields. They are often obsessed with tools and gadgets. The 4th pada are nearly always physicians, nurses, or herbalists.

Competitive and irascible, often reclusive and disregarding of others' feelings, boldly productive Dasra are found in medicine, engineering, scientific instrumentation, and all species of gadgetry.

Azvikini are often found in medical or veterinary environments such as pharmacies, laboratories, hospitals, surgeries, and clinics. Due to their psychic (Ketu) capability to engage with astral patterns, Asvakini can also serve as medical intuitives and spiritual healers.

When looking for new ideas, they pursue an intuitive instinct to tap into the Akashic grid. Unconcerned with conforming to conventional expectations, they may seem selfish or rude. However, their job is to innovate, not to submit to old paradigms. Criticism rarely affects them.

Dasra-born hear the psychic instructions which guide their product design, surgical cutting, or drug formulation. Then, Azvini actively pushes (Kuja) the ethereal vision into material realization. Whatever endeavor they choose to pursue, Azvini tend to develop new methods and produce new things.

Azvakini fellows tend to prefer the freedom of bachelorhood. If they choose to marry, the mate shoulders most of the family duties. In relationships, much depends upon their Chandra.

Themes of eccentricity, invention, irritability, and psychic vitality may contextualize Azvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Azvini

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 84

"... a happy carefree disposition,

  • very intelligent,

  • in fact a rather above average person in this respect.

He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that

  • he will seldom have to worry about money matters.

In spite of his ability to achieve success,

  • he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements."

Hahnemann and his large family shifted house many times during his adulthood. Although never moving far from the River Elbe in Saxony, nevertheless there were so many house shifts that it attracted attention.

After the death of his first wife, he moved to Paris. When he turned 80 years old, he remarried a Frenchwoman 40 years his junior.

Guru = karkaka for languages

Young SH worked throughout his life as a written language translator of scientific and medical textbooks, using a variety of classical, ancient, and romance literary languages along with his native Saxon-German.

Although a qualified physician, SH could not earn enough with a conventional medical practice to support his 11 children. Therefore he mainly did text translation and ongoing chemical experiments.

As SH's own medicinary research progressed, Hahnemann published numerous assiduously detailed summaries and scientific observations. Unlike most German authors of the bhukti, who wrote in belabored prose, SH's writing style is clear -- albeit a bit poetic. Most of his writings are still used as textbooks in modern homeopathic medical schools. A few of SH's early translations of Greek-and-Latin medical texts into academic German are still valued too.

Rahu Mahadasha * age 71.1 until age decease age 88

Rahu mahadasha was a wild time for such an elderly fellow.

The death of his first wife and mother of his 11 children occurred when Samuel was 75 years of age. Rather than slide quietly into his sunset years, he decided to stir up a scandal to delightful effect. First he moved to Paris, and then at the age of 80, he married Melanie, a medical assistant more than 40 years his junior . A pleasant natural death happened during the chidradasha.

In contemplative Meena-12, no-consequences Ketu abandons the dominant paradigm.

a highly complex research personality, apparently receiving significant direction from spirit guides (Meena) was able to bring modern medicine to a completely new level of theory, practice, and pharmaceutical inventory. Unimpeded access to otherworldly guidance benefiting from no barriers Ketu.

\On the other hand, the public viewed him as eccentric in the extreme, and the medical system he devised is denounced as "quackery" by those who lack the sensitivity to understand it.

As the 70-something husband of a 20-something, he also may have received guidance on youthful vitalities (Budha-yuti-Ketu, Budha lagnesha).
