Masculine Nativities

Arudra - Betelgeuze * Trinetra

BPL commentary

For Arudra - Betelgeuze births of masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome .

For those born into the Rahu-ruled paradigm of Rudhira, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, intensifiers of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, agents-provocateur , charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from Orion. Their purpose is to communicate the passionate animal vitality via stormy, turbulent, swaying, exciting gesture and signal.

Passionately Communicative

[Rahu] -ruled Arudra - Betelgeuze fellows are often found in muscular, passionate, body-intensive roles. Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage. Stage performers of high excellence, Arudra - Betelgeuze gentlemen are often admired for their pulsing sensuality and animal magnetism.

Thiruvaathira chaps may be gifted in all varieties of manual labor, handcraft, commerce, painting, descriptive writing, evocative song-writing, and the arts of beckoning, seductive gesture [Budha].

Themes of stimulating signal patterns, passionate messaging, volatility, intense cycles of attraction-and-repulsion, and stormy outbursts may contextualize Arudra - Betelgeuze's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Arudra - Betelgeuze.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.[1939]. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

" Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniṣṭharising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops. [see later Pada descriptions]."
