BPL commentary

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

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

Dhaniṣṭha-born often respond to a deep inner fear [Shani] which manifests as aggressive survival-driven competition [Kuja]. The result = orderly, direct, empowered, and dynamic structured action.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Delphinus. Their purpose is social engineering, economic competition, and achievement of dominant positions.

Hierarchical Power Climber

Kuja-ruled Vasu-born ladies endure acute Shani-Mangala tension. These women are athletic, goal-oriented, and competitive. Those who have chosen a feminine-form birth may find themselves surrounded by invigorating but dominating masculine figures. Male colleagues may be surprised to discover that despite their feminine style, Dhaniṣṭha ladies are equal and serious competitors. Their sexual energies are alive, and may be used to advantage.

Dhaniṣṭha + Sraviztha are a pair, similar to the Purva-Uttara pairs. Similar to genteel Shraviztha, those born within Dhaniṣṭha are highly sensitive to rhythm, pace, and tone. They can develop successful careers in music and dance performance.

Unlike demur Soma-ruled Shraviztha, those born into Kuja-ruled Dhaniṣṭha favor athletic movement. They thrive where the beat of the war-drums is deep and strong. They set high-achievement goals. Dhaniṣṭha are determined to win the contest, at any cost. When Dhaniṣṭha ladies choose an entertainment career, it is often full of loud singing, vigorous dance, sexual strutting, and men.

In the modern era, Dhaniṣṭha ladies may use Mangala's kinetic energies to ascend the corporate-institutional hierarchies of Shani,. They strive for alpha-dominant positions. All fields of competitive endeavor are open to the Avittam-born, including athletics and contests. Often preferring applied scientific careers with measurable outcomes, Dhaniṣṭha-born are also found in all types of systematic intervention into their environment, such as social engineering, political engineering, or materials engineering.

Operating in orderly Shani-controlled environments of Makara and Kumbha, feminine Vasu champions are often surrounded by lawful, systematic, and timid folk who rarely resist Hrsikesha's powerful ascending drive. They are often respected in the boss role due to Kuja's ability to dominate the field of activity while keeping the respect of their male peers.

Vasu-born ladies face particular challenges in Kuja's aggressive, male-dominated environments. Their career pathway is studded with rough dominators using physical force and even brutality. Yet, a well-placed, vigorous Mangala, along with Shani's natural lawful patience, can bring Dhaniṣṭha women to the peak of social recognition and economic achievement.


Kumbha pada 3-4 express Kuja's control of 3-commerce + 10-leadership. Any commercial endeavor suits the pada 3-4 Hrsikesha-born, so long as they find a path toward governing power. Gifted in manufacturing (3) programming and process (3) sales-marketing (3) and all business functions - especially communications -- this breed competes aggressively for leadership. Their innovative actions may forcefully change the status quo in even the most entrenched environments. Since Kuja activates a 6/8 pair, their Achilles Heel = micro-management (3-10). Outcome depends upon the character of Mangala.

Themes of conquest, pursuit, and achievement may contextualize Vasu's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Dhaniṣṭha

Her elder brother was her consulting attorney. Unusually for a women of her era, MBE pursued decades worth of legal actions including divorces, property settlements, and copyright protections.

Rahu seeks privilege via economic activity [Kumbha] via congregation, faith community, friendships

  • MBE was regularly accused of fraud and plagiarism . Her following grew despite the slander . Her psychic faith-healing doctrines predominantly attracted a wealthy, economically engaged clientele.

Rahu in bhava-7 occupies 10th-from-1oth

For more than 40 years, from the time of the Civil War until her death in 1910, MBE was a highly recognizable figure.

In a cultural era which featured a small number of women leaders, MBE was a long-enduring Chandra-Makara-Draco public figure.

Partly because she had material PROOF [Shani] that her prayer practices had restored her bodily health (Chandra-6) from the most dire state of paralytic illness, MBE was generally respected as a scientific personality -- even when competing theologians took exception to her Church teachings.

Ketu rules Mula Svamsha

MBE was retrospectively (and not completely authoritatively) diagnosed with psychotic personality disorder (PPD) exacerbated by a lifelong morphine habit (commonly found in her era, and not always considered an addiction). Shukra-6

Ketu Mahadasha * age 80 until age 87

  • later years descent into paranoia
  • The mental disorders, if any, were considered to have emerged late in life during Ketu Mahadasha


Step-mother is indicated by Ketu-Singha * Ketu in classroom-7 residing in MBE's emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra

After the sudden death of her first husband after only 6 months of marriage, pregnant-and-sick MBE returned to her father's home. He had remarried, and the step-mother felt no connection to weird, attention-demanding, bed-ridden MBE. In particular, the step-mother did not want responsibility for MBE's young son.

MBE disconnects herself

The stepmom and a hired nurse raised the child until he was 4, while MBE laid in bed, received visitors, and prayed. But after four years of pampering MBE, while bearing the care of the child, the stepmom snapped (Ketu severance).

MBE declared herself too sick to raise the child. Her dad sent the boy to live with his nurse who had effectively raised him since birth. She married and moved away, taking MBE's son with her. He and the family nurse stayed in touch with MBE via letters.

The lore of CS framed MBE as a victim of patriarchal property lore, under which her dad had sold her son as a child-worker to a distant farm family. MBE had a wonderful imagination and told many spun tales.

Chidrakaraka Ketu

Witness records attest that she effectively disconnected from all conventional roles and duties, including the roles of parent and household member, in order to develop her brilliant new form of spiritual healing prayer.

"and now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
