Feminine Nativities

Revatika-Pausan * Pashu

BPL commentary

For Revatika births of a feminine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

Pashu the Pastor is delicately attuned to the signals of the animal kingdom, and He often works for the betterment of all creatures. Many veterinarians and animal-welfare activists are Revatika-born. These way-showers are also found in all aspects of music and dancing, producing melodies, beats, and lyrics.

Whatever the Pashu folk say, others will follow and believe.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Antyabha, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts -- and beasts of every description - may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of stars clustered near Zeta Piscium. Their purpose is to shepherd the flocks in safe passage, calling them to follow with an imaginative, sweet sound and rhythm

The Way-Shower

Revatika ladies expresses the natural tension between Busy Bantering Budha and Guiding Generous Guru. Commercially oriented Budha is a master of writing, reporting, cinema, and detailed communication. Kumara naturally matches the vibration of chatty students and a younger audience. Yet, Brihaspati much prefers to preach on broad-scope topics, ideology and inclusive doctrine.

Revatika-born often find themselves in shepherding roles that require delivering a message to their herd of followers. The usual delivery style is musical, oratorical, or imagistic-imaginative, but any method of Showing the Way may be chosen. Pashu the Pastor combines a broad humanistic vision with a beckoning repeating signal frequency such as a slogan, a jingle, or a melody.

Themes of pastoral guidance, musical or imagistic messaging, and benevolent outreach to all creatures may contextualize Revatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Revatika-Pashu .

Guru-Budha bhukti

Budha-yuti-Ketu * Kuja-7 Parivartamsha Budha-9

In 1897, Therese wrote her best-seller = a sentimental, easy-reading spiritual instruction memoire The Story of a Soul . Published in 1898 after her death, this text was hugely popular with a worldwide, working-class audience of Roman-rite readers . Therese was revered as an ideal model for Catholic girlhood for a hundred years.

Le Petite Voie= still widely read as a devotional study. This way-showing contemplation consists of Therese's brief, entirely personal, charmingly modest, unanalyzed and sweepingly sentimental observations upon her childhood and early years in her Carmelite convent.

The devotions are marked by profound humility. Readers learn through each each petite vignette that she was a spoiled youngest child prone to tantrums. Somana-yuti-Shukra spoiled. She died shortly after finishing the reminiscence.

Easy to read and relatable, Le Petite Voie was a runaway best-seller within the peasant-heritage and working-class Roman-rite Catholic communities of Europe and Euro-America. Within only a few years of her death, Saint Therese of the Little Way had become a celestial celebrity in the Roman-rite Catholic Church.

Lasting Influence of this Guided Pathway * Revatika-Pausan

For all its unpretentious, sweet (some would say saccharine) simplicity, the Little Way has provided guidance and comfort to millions of contemplative seekers since the early 20th century. Her phrasing might seem highly neurotic today. Yet when seen in the light of the typical romantic language of the late 1800's time bhukti, these writings are not especially psychologically self-destructive or masochistic (as the critics may claim).

Therese's personal inability to relieve her aggrieved feelings Chandra in classroom-12 without the support of Divine grace, as expressed in her short life and her writings, have become a beacon of light to many trapped in the vortex of illness, grief, resentment, disputes, treachery, broken promises, social inequity, and personal dissatisfaction.
