Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities


BPL commentary

For Uttarāṣāḍha 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 Iswara, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.


Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha.

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

A peace loving disposition.

  • Very intelligent and wise.

Eager to live and let live.

  • Tolerant to others, giving help where help is required.

A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

  • Such a person makes a good and steady friend,

  • whose friendship is to be valued because it will stand the tests of time and adversity."
