BPL commentary

For Magha births of a feminine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Ajjha, spirit guides, astral beings, pilgrims, ghosts, wanderers, observers, witnesses, awareness of impermanence, freedom from conventions, disregard for consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Guided by the patrons of Regulus. Their purpose is royal patronage of the spiritual fire traditions.

Fire Magicians

Magha gentlewomen may have a cause for which they are willing to sacrifice their own interests. Often there is some acute severance or separation which may be repaired after a long time.

Fervently spiritual yet often unconventional in their behavior, Makha ladies can be socially eccentric. Their special combination of Ketu's witness perspective with Surya's absolute certainty of purpose = a unique personality that defies conventional limits.

Intensely romantic, disregarding of political consequences, and dramatic in their devotion to the ideal, the feminine Agha are typically independent actors and capable of living separately if circumstances demand it.

She is often the only woman in a patriarchal (pitri) environment. This daunting fact, she confidently disregards. Her qualities of detachment + her authentic intelligence may provoke criticism from more pedestrian judges.

Themes of separation, disconnection, abandonment, alienation, escape, wandering, annihilation, surrender, and liberation may contextualize Agha's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Magha-Regulus

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 94

"A frank and courageous nature

  • and a charming and interesting character ...

Unfortunately these attributes seem to engender envy on the part of those less fortunately bequeathed.

As a result, this person is subject to barbs of gossip

  • and all through her life has many secret enemies

  • who are jealous of her in one way or another.

this in spite of the fact that hers is essentially an honorable and virtuous character

  • not given to either thought or action

  • which should bring slander or scandal.

She is particularly loyal to her family

  • and will do anything to make them happy.

As a result of his, her actions are often misconstrued

  • and used against her by her enemies."

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.

  • 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-1 residing in MBE's emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, ttrauma-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."
