Masculine Nativities

Chitra-Tvastri * Citthirai * Vismakarma * Azinech * Alaraph * Arista * Dana


BPL commentary

For Chitra-Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

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

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.


Designs + Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Thula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Zukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. They are often found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84


"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

Helena Shaposhnikova married Nicholas Roerich in 1901. Helena Roerich became a much beloved writer of extensive international correspondence of friends + family. As well, she undertook formal academic studies such as explications of Buddhist doctrines. Her commercial abilities were also pronounced. The family's many travel itineraries were effectively organized.

"Woman should realize that she herself contains all forces, and the moment she shakes off the age-old hypnosis of her seemingly lawful subjugation and mental inferiority and occupies herself with a manifold education, she will create in collaboration with man a new and better world... Cosmos affirms the greatness of woman's creative principle. Woman is a personification of nature, and it is nature that teaches man, not man nature. Therefore, may all women realize the grandeur of their origin, and may they strive for knowledge." (Letters of Helena Roerich 1935-1939, vol. II)

Although famed for his visionary artwork, Roerich had also trained to become a lawyer in his young adulthood. He understood legal frameworks and was successful in formulating protective legislation termed the "Roerich Pact" which articulated the process for cataloging precious art objects worldwide and shielding these treasures from the violence of war.


Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Meza-Arya * shimmering illusion of championship * craving for superiority * exotic use of dominating force * mask of competitive action * mirage of first-arrival pioneer * over-reaching urgency * extraordinary muscularity * mesmerizing forward movement * unusual athleticism * fascinating conquests * marvelous warriorship * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of heroic action * seeks privilege via innovator-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-8 * passion for secrets * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual secrets, recycling, rebirth, reinvention; rejuvenation. The Chandala in 8 desires a special, important, therapeutic role in transformative, hidden knowledge, confidential, revolutionary, catastrophic role. May be the secretary (secret-keeper) of a powerful individual or group. Opportunistic in-laws, inheritance, alimonies. Exciting, ambitious family of the lifepartner (in-laws).

Realm of Light 1874-1947 painter Nicholas Roerich was a famed painter (3) and Theosophist (9). He belonged to a worldwide network (11) of fellow believers. His paintings have an emotional appeal to those invested in a particular dharma (theory of reality) for whom they transmit powerful messages. However to those outside his sahangha, the paintings evoke no special response. Roerich was born to a socialite mother, and he earned a substantial income from his 7,000 + paintings which allowed him to live and travel comfortably.
