Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Chitra - Spica

Citthirai - Vismakarma - Azinech - Alaraph - Arista - Dana


For Chitra - Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Mangala-ruled paradigm of Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Designs + Arrangements

[Competitive Kuja] -ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. As authors, Chaitrika often illustrate their works with fine drawings. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or manually gifted musicians.

[Tula - Vanika] pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Shukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Shukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. Chaitrika pada 3-4 can be found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, musical instruments, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Chitra - Spica.

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

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

During the interminable European sea-trading wars, when Baruch was 21, his fruit-importer father was traveling aboard a trading ship that came under attack by pirate gunfire. At age 21, elder son Baruch Spinoza thus inherited responsibility to operate the family business.

BS identity was radically when he was banished from Jewish society via the write of cherem. He became virtually dead to his fellow Jews. No one was allowed to speak with him or recognize his person in any way.

BS responded by rebirthing himself. No longer concerned with managing his family's shipping business, he developed a specialized lens-grinding workshop. Spinoza's lenses for both microscopes and telescopes were prized throughout Europe.

He still had to write anonymously for fear of attack by the Christian government's religious authorities. However, freed of the outdated rules that controlled his previous actions, he now acted as an independent writer and craftsman without regard to the past.


Little Bento was born to his father's second wife. Tragically, at his age 6, mom died from typhoid in the water when little Baruch was age-6 [Chandra water]


Spinoza is often identified as the first famous example of a secular Jew in Europe.

Amplifying the disturbance to Soma's cultural roots, Chandra-yuti-Rahu suggests a lifetime of emotional upheaval and a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting sensibility which causes an interrupted sense of belonging.

His life plan would seem to have provocatively prevented conformity and reduced stability in order to exaggerate the patterns of revelation [8] in his magnificent philosophy.

Budha lagnesha

Spinoza is considered by many historians to represent Europe's first example of a secular Jew. His identity was self-defined by his thoughts [Budha] not his ritual worship habits, nor his appearance.

Spinoza produced some of the highest-quality, most detailed descriptive, instructionally complete, intellectual philosophical writing of the European Enlightenment

During [Surya-Ketu bhukti] on 27 July 1656,

Spinoza was banished from the Amsterdam Jewish community by writ of Cherem [haram] which declared his ideas to be abhorrent.

However, Spinoza at the time commented that the excommunication situation did not bother him. He said it was essentially irrelevant [Ketu] to his philosophical purpose. He left Amsterdam, and he continued to write.
