Masculine Nativities

Swatika * Chotthi * Vayu * Nishtya


BPL commentary

For Swatika births of a masculine valence, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, exciting, passionate, ambitious, opportunistic, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Nishthya, exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, rogues, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus. Their purpose is to broker trade agreements and balance the interests of multiple ambitious stakeholders.


Social justice, personal power

Rahu-ruled Swatika gentlemen are Mix-Master Middlemen. They tend to be fascinating figures. By skillfully mixing and trading with different folks, Swatika chaps build exotic new exchange relationships. They are often found in policy organizations and government agencies, where their social equity work is distinctively multi-cultural. Their roles include trader, exchanger, bridge-builder, diplomat, negotiator, deal-maker, bargainer, marriage-matcher, alliance-designer, and other balancing activities that engage two mismatched sides within one functional agreement.

Swatika represents Rahu's desire to amplify Zukra's quest for harmonious agreements. Rahu challenges cultural boundaries. The mix-master may skillfully combine unusual agents and mismatched agendas in order to obtain a rebalanced status. Similar to Shataviskaka, the Swatika-born are mixed-system orchestrators who may take direction from Otherworldly sources. The character of Rahu is determinative.

Due to their Rahu-gifted ability to think outside the box, Swatika-born may realize previously unthinkable opportunities for diplomacy and fair exchange. Their success is noted in negotiation, trade-deals, and bargaining in commodities, ideas, or services.

In politics, Nishthya fellows may be associated with social, economic, or political integration of previously hostile or excluded participants. Their special talent is dealing with those who may be rogues, outsiders, stigmatized, or posturing frauds. Vayu-born graciously mix people and environments that were once segregated, by making successful pairings between ethnicities, religions, nations, or individuals of differing practice.

Their pursuit of a social justice agenda is not entirely idealistic. It is ultimately motivated by their desire to obtain privilege by facilitating partnership geared to increased barter, brokerage, and exchange.

Themes of opportunity, fascination with appearances, and acquisition of privilege may contextualize Swatika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Swatika-Chandra

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


"a quiet and unassuming person,

thoughtful and meditative

  • yet given to sudden outbursts of temper.

Lives in the mental world rather than in the physical.

Prefers solitude to the company of others.

  • Does not care for small talk

  • and finds social contact rather tiresome.

Many astrologers and philosophers found with Shatataraka on the Rising Point."

A light eater and moderate in most things."

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."
