Feminine Nativities

Purvabhadra - Pegasus


BPL commentary

For Purvabhadra births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Aja-ekapada, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Pegasus. Their purpose is expansion of prosperity= proshtha.

High forehead. Universalist perspective. The majority of Purvabhadra are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles. Saptarishi -ruled ladies born into the paradigm of Ajaekapada are often excellent dancers who bring wisdom through Posture and Dance .

[Kumbha-Ghata] pada 1-2-3 expresses Guru's rulership of 2-collections, affluence ++ 11-revenues, friendships. Guru-and-Shani are mutually neutral. Pada 1-2-3 ladies are found at the overlap between Guru's financial-social expansions (2-11) and Shani's ability to bridge the physical-astral worlds. They are often involved in large-scale social economic connectivity which has both a public and a private dimension, such as international finance or government-corporate aid groups. They can also be social scientific theorists and writers. Life centers around the husband, who is often involved in large-systems work. Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

[Meena-Antya] pada-4 expresses Guru's rulership of 1-embodiment ++ 10-leadership, reputation, Guru activates both Purvabhadra nakshatra ++ Meena rashi, creating a concentrated effect of Benevolent Brihaspati within this unique pada. Their husbands are generous preacher-teacher-types. Pada-4 is less oriented to financial affluence and more attuned to visionary truth. These women become leaders in Guru-style wisdom fields such as divinity, philosophy, spiritual healing, clairsentient understanding, envisioning, or ancestor guidance.

Themes of broad scope, theoretical understanding, and visionary imagination may contextualize Ajaekapada's terrestrial experience Applies also to Chandra in Purvabhadra - Pegasus

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

  • or she marries wealth.

She likes to be identified with cultural activities

  • and is extremely influential in the community in which she moves.
She likes reading,
  • and is a good judge of character." [end quote]
