Feminine Nativities

Uttara-azadha * Vaizva

BPL commentary

For Uttara-azadha births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. Nakshatrapathi Surya + Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns which stimulate creativity and grant charismatic authority. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine. A woman born in Pada-1 is likely to teach- preach via her husband. Yet, if she is able to obtain patronage, she may act independently (Surya).

Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic nakshatrapathi Surya. From the Makara lagna, Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral (Shani). Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet their purpose is visionary (Surya). Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. A woman born in Pada-2-3-4 may be a spiritual healer in her own right. Her emotional dedication to the lifepartner's wellbeing arises from Chandra = yuvathipathi.

Themes of clairsentient vision, lawful transformation, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttara-azadha.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"...a contented nature.

She is one who is interested in forming societies and clubs,

  • and who makes a good manager and organizer.

She is fluent in speech ,

  • forceful and logical in writing.

She is extremely devoted to her husband."

Distinctive features of nativity


Basilique de Notre-Dame de Lourdes

Church built upon the one of the supply bases (Basilica = base) of the underlying Roman military control network which was supplanted by the Roman religious control system (as the age of Mesha shifted into the age of Meena).

The Roman soldiers valued the healing power of the magnetized waters which bubbled from the ground. 2000 years later, the area had become a muddy swamp, used by local folk as a garbage dump. Then Bernadette got the message.

* dedicated to Our Lady at Lorus ** old Celtico-Roman name of Lourdes = Lorus

SoubirousBernadette2.jpg Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

* Sarala Yoga

  • Surya-Dhanuzya* Aditya * the unsplit, undivided
  • Surya in bhava-12 * center of Other-Worlds, brightly contemplative, focus on seclusion, invisible light-source provides guidance, intuitive entitlements, intelligence for private prayer, eye on imagination
  • Surya-yuti-Rahu * confidently opportunistic * bright mesmerizer * creatively intelligent culture-mixing * entitled to mix and mottle * ambitious father-figure * adventurously aligned with the spiritual rays of the Sun * radiantly risk-rewarding

For Makara-Draco nativities, Surya rules 8 occupies 12 = Viparita Raja-Yoga

Sarala Yoga protects from destruction by occult forces, poisons, secret agents, undisclosed information.

  • Despite the chaotic church politics and superstitious attacks by the village people, young Bernarda's visions (12) were sustaining and protective. She continued her lifetime habit of private prayer (12) as always, regardless of outside turbulence.

Surya in bhava-12 imaginative-intelligence is greatly amplified by Surya-yuti-Rahu-Dhanuzya = passion for clairsentient inspiration.

Surya-yuti-Rahu occupies the emotionally uncomfortable 6th-from-Chandra-7

The parents are not ideally aligned = father + mother = 6/8


Dad's grain mill failed during a nationwide economic depression which inflicted poverty throughout France.

Surya in bhava-12 yuti Rahu-zero-Mula = sudden changes for the father.

Surya randhresha seeks coverage * defined by extraordinary self-annihilating Rahu-Mula

As a condition of the grant of sanctuary (12) within the convent walls, Maria-Bernarda was forbidden from discussing the brilliant Marian apparitions (Surya). In coordination with taking her vows, Bernarda was permitted to tell the whole story, once, to her immediate congregation in the convent. Thereafter (due to the jealousy of the Mother Superior) she could never mention this extraordinary (Surya-yuti-Rahu) tale again.

Until she became too sick to work, Bernarda assumed a role in managing the in-situ hospice (12) of the Sisters in Lourdes.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Karkata * comforted by rhythmic tidal maternal soothing
  • Chandra in Pushyami * comforted by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure, sensitive legislators, sober caretakers, legally minded environmentalists
  • Chandra in classroom-7 * comfort in arrangements * familiar with security-focused bargaining * soothed by match-making * needs to feel the repeating pulse of deal-making * accustomed to routine habits of matched partnership * settled into the rhythm of negotiations * need for balanced contracts * nourished by undulating agreements * undulating equity


Consistent with the customs of the day, Bernarda's 16-year-old mother (Chandra) married a modestly prosperous local grain miller. Little Maria-Bernarda's birth was the first her her nine children (7 survived infancy).

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations

7th-from-Chandra-7 = Shani in Bhava-1 * Shani-Makara-Draco * Shani-yuti-Budha * Shani-yuti-Zukra

Chandra-7 contracts

  • As eldest of seven living children, the non-literate Maria-Bernarda was put to work by her parents in contract to a foster mother (Chandra-7). The contract (7) specified that the sheep-owning fostering mother would give food and shelter in exchange for the girl's shepherding work.
  • Maria-Bernarda apparently disliked the foster situation, because she was not being properly prepared for her Holy Communion. After some months made the day-long walk back to her home without notice to the mistress, because she wanted to return to her beloved mother.

Karkata-Chandra-7 contracts, alliances, partnerships = receives incoming drishti of Zukra, Budha, Shani. During every bhukti of Zukra, Budha, Shani there is also an influence of psycho-emotional hypersensitivity of Chandra.

Chandra in Pushyami = law-abiding

Before the age of Chandra's maturity at age 24, those born with Chandra in classroom-7 if separated from home often experience a deep longing for the mother which must be satisfied (7 satisfaction, equity, balanced). After age 24, the mother-child alliance is more negotiable.

Shani's drishti upon Chandra-7 while Shani owns Pushya nakshatra also places a natural austerity upon the personality.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka


  • Mangala-Kumbha * vigorous pursuit of community activism * warrior for economic progress * proactive linking * push toward regulated systems * pursues profitable roles * dominating energy in social networking * conquest of marketplace interactions * champion of distributed associations
  • Mangala in bhava-2 * drive toward values lineage, pursuit of treasuries, energized face-speech-song, aggressive family hoarding, vigorous capitalization-banking, storage, assets, conservation, family dynamics, acquisitive conquests
  • Kuja-yuti-Guru * multiple competitions, many brother-figures, energized growth, dynamic generosity, masculine force joins optimistic expansion, champion of humanistic worldview, potential for aggressive preaching, indoctrinating actions

A significant dhanayoga occurs as a result of Kuja-rules-11 ++ Kuja occupies-2.

Although Bernadette eschewed personal possessions after she took the nun's vow of poverty, nevertheless her extended family (2, kutumbha) profited greatly as the shrine was built and tourist funds began to develop. Many succeeding generations have maintained economic advantage due to the speeches of their ancestor Sr. Maria Bernarda.

Although a loyal rural personality, her Kuja residing the emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra would suggest that her relationship with her more expansion, ebullient family members may have been volatile (8)

Kuja rules 4-11 occupies 2 = gainful from real-estate (the grotto) and from marketplace revenues (tourism)

Kuja-2 bandesha = her legendary oft-repeated (Budha) request to have a chapel (4, ritual housing) built at the sacred site (4) as dictated by Aquero

Due to 4th-from-Chandra = bhava-10 public visibility ++ Shukra-1 karmesha == Her place of burial after Lightbody Lift-off ultimately was a glass shrine featuring a crystal-and-gold casket.

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

Chattering Kumara rules the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra emotionally based messages * siblings, cohort, communications, announcements, reports

  • Budha-Makara-Draco * bureaucratic communications * articulation of lawfully orderly process * proletarian phrasing * delivers procedure for imposing rules * descriptive explanations of the social order *  messages about governance * documentation of regulatory procedures * diagrams the hierarchies * status-conscious mentality * hands-arms-shoulders send normalizing gestures
  • Budha in bhava-1 * digbala * narrative of body, bifurcated self-image, discusses physical appearance, describer of embodiment, explainer of tangible self, delivers instructions for self-characterization, articulation of communicative movement, animated gestures, talks about personality, details the two-sided identity
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * explainer of balanced arrangements * affinity for diplomatic conversations * parity-seeking communicator roles * enjoys words * sweet descriptions * delivers instruction about relationships * vocabulary of balanced arrangements * articulator of equity in agreements * message of fairly bargained contracts * skilled in songwriting * talkative sister-cousin-cohort * detailed lyricist * attracts chatty partners , talkative sister-cousin-cohort, lyricist
  • Budha-yuti-Shani * explainer of rules and systems * affinity for regulatory, law-imposing roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction * explainer of rules and systems * affinity for regulatory, law-imposing roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction * articulation of maturity and responsibility, message of institutional order, talkative elders, talkative elders

Budha-yuti-Zukra-1 occupy Sravana the Listener

Chattering Kumara occupies the contractual, partnering 7th-from-Chandra

Disease conditions * rogesha Budha-1

Rogesha Budha-1 = Bernadette was persistently but non-fatally sick during most of her short life. Most bhukti of Budha were defined by illness which co-occurred with religious fervor since Budha is also the dharmesha.

Rogesha in radical lagna generally indicates a lifetime of both suffering and service. Budha in bhava-1 * digbala is particularly empowered to articulate both aspects of bhava-6 via the physical body (1).

Disease serves purpose of spiritual-cellular release of expectations and acceptance of ministry of service. She died of tuberculosis of the bones = Budha-Makara. The site of most intense infection and suffering was her right knee = Shani. After canonization, Bernadette became the patron saint of ill persons praying for intercession for incurable or mysterious diseases.

After the childhood cholera, Bernadette suffered a lifelong condition of asthma = Budha- lungs and Ketu-Mithunaya-6 = lungs asthma.

Despite a lifetime of animosities and illnesses, her experience of mistreatment was largely accommodated into her understanding Earthly social-material limitations due to drishti from suppressive, dutiful Shani. The lore of Bernadette in the devotional literature recounts that she accepted all penance (Shani penance, Shani weight) and remained cheerful despite the obvious bodily pain of her fatal tuberculosis.

Budha Mahadasha * age 3 until age 19. Maria Bernarda did not learn to read until she was an older teenager. With the family in dire straits financially, Bernadette was sent into the local countryside to live with the woman who had nursed her as an infant (wet nurse). The foster-mother was supposed to prepare Bernarda to read catechism to prepare for First Communion, but instead Bernarda shepherded this woman's sheep.

Sibling Cohort

St. Bernadette was the eldest of nine children. Budha-yuti-Shani connotes a heavy, adult-level responsibility for siblings.

Budha ruler of the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra (younger siblings) occupies Makara-1, showing responsibility (Shani) for managing (Budha) the cohort of siblings.

3rd-from-Chandra = dharmasthana suggesting that while the younger ones are a heavy responsibility, the overall experience is fortunate (9) indeed one has a patronizing, fatherly role. Bernadette was not heard to complain about her peasant home duties since these were culturally normal (Shani) . Chandra in classroom-7 suggests that she would have experienced an equal, emotionally sustaining relationship with her dear mother in a joint parenting arrangement. Surya-12 suggests that the father was often elsewhere.

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Kumbha * much networking, many group associations, scientific beliefs, doctrine of economic linkage, expands the scope of social participation, multiple communities and friendships
  • Guru in bhava-2 * much hoard * many songs * many stories * extensive history * expanded storage * several genetic lines * many accumulated goods * numerous languages * many voices * many valuations * extensive accounts * grows the family lineage * believes in conservation * patron of speech-and-song
  • Guru-yuti-Mangala bhratri-karaka * multiple brother-figures * permission to compete-and-win * expansive conquests * progressive philosophy * large-scale invasive actions * vigorous champion of optimistic belief

Guru occupies the emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

Guru karaka for languages

Family and language * bhava-2

Aquero spoke to Maria Bernarda Sobiros using the Occitan dialect Gascon, the language of Gascogne. Guru-2 = ability to use several languages, and a preference for the tongue of the common people (Kumbha). Bernadette's narrative contains numerous references emphasizing the importance of the fact that The Lady spoke to her in native Gascon, not the government language of French.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-creativity, intelligence, games ++ 10-leadership, social respect, profession

  • Zukra-Makara-Draco * appreciation of authoritative status, likes architectural structure, attracted to officials and law, enjoys social position, beautiful bones, prefers old buildings and stony dryness, balanced skeleton, lovely legs, pleasures of structure, hierarchical arrangements
  • Zukra-1 * pleasure of handsome embodiment * enjoys the company of women * graciously attractive qualities of the appearance * active style of balancing * active pursuit of arrangements * appreciation of embodiment * pleasing designs to adorn the head * aesthetic of new life * physical exercise to balance the brain * identified with brokerage * seeks the sweet midpoint of dynamic negotiations * energetic pursuit of equity * identified with acts of diplomacy * bargains vigorously for fair exchange
  • Zukra-yuti-Budha * * sweetened messages * gracious explanations * singing and songwriting * articulate negotiations * talkative sister-figures * pleasant conversations * bargaining for business * sibling-cohort communicative arrangements * youthful beauty, lyricist, musical cohort
  • Zukra-yuti-Shani * sweetened structures, mature relationships, gracious lawfulness, beautiful bones, appreciation for neutrality, strict negotiations, pleasant legal mediation, architectural rigor, enduring agreements * arrangements abide by regulatory law. This benevolent combination signals success in artistic endeavor of a pragmatic, materialistic character, such as music composition or fashion design. Deepens the artistic discipline. Shani contributes mature realism to Zukra's love of balance + beauty. In a husbandly nativity, may prefer a senior, responsible wife.

Zukra occupies the contractual, partnering 7th-from-Chandra

Yogakaraka Zukra rules 5-10

Zukra karmesha occupies bhava-1 suggesting that, solicited or not, one would become a well-known figure

Zukra-yuti-Budhan occupies Sravana The Listener

Shamans (the listeners) often get very sick.

Traditionally in these Celtic-culture lands, the spiritual information provided by messengers from Otherworld is accessed through deep grounding in the Earth. As a child, Maria Bernarda was raised partially in a cachot = cache, a cold earth storage basement under a house. The cachot in which she was raised (due to her family's poverty) had been previously used as a souterraine for milled grain, and as a gaol. Although physically the cold damp underground becomes a breeding pit for disease, the opposite effects may be felt spiritually as one contacts the Otherworld by living under the Earth's surface surrounded by damp dirt.

Zukra * Sisters in Convent de Nevers

After she was accepted (age 22) into the cloisters of into the Congregation des Sœurs de la Charite de Nevers * Ketu-Zukra bhukti * Zukra vows, promise * Bernadette became a nursing sister in a community of religious women.

It was said that young Sr. Marie-Bernarde received a rather rough treatment from the sisters in the convent. But she was also neutrally accepting and rather oblivious toward those who mistreated her due to Ketu in classroom-6 .

Also likely she was the victim (6) of an overly vigorous campaign by puritanical mothers superior (Chandra-Pushya) against the newly sloganized, dreaded bourgeois sin of female conceit. "Penance, penance" was Bernadette's motto. (Shani, weight, penance)

Soeur Marie-Bernarde crafted altar-vestment embroideries. Her textiles were said to be very beautiful. Makara-Zukra + Shani gifts a lovely balanced sense of artistic design and textured structure.

Zukra rules the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra * in all the unwanted publicity of her fame, Bernarda found a safe home with the sisters

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka


* Shasaya Yoga

  • Shani-Makara-Draco * heavy old institutions, obliged to conform to the time-clock * rigidly ranked hierarchies, strict governance regimes, pressure to complete socially required duties, vital energy compression stress zone = knees-calves-skeleton, strictly imposed hierarchies, rigidly unyielding public policies* must materialize time-ordered social approval * punitive judgments of elder regulators * must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian structures * must continue to govern the public despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-1 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious personality. One must act under pressure, have to move but slowly, push forward against stiff limitations; cautious, conventional identity; tense competition, muscular fatigue,  chronic impeded movement, seizures and cramps. Heavy legacy pressure against free movement. Resistance to new ideas and direct action. Resentment toward constriction of physical appearance. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles, conventionalized identity, and conduct befitting an elder.
  • Shani-yuti-Budha * resistance against signaling * materialistic siblings * responsible for maintaining lawful commerce * pragmatic coupling * limited interaction * disciplined messaging * structured announcements * speaks plainly * proletarian instructions * regulated business * constrained communication * conventionally regulated conversations
  • Shani-yuti-Zukra * resistance against equity * limited luxuries * slow-elder sisterly figures * pragmatic finance * contractual discipline * socially constrained harmony * conventionally regulated pleasures * trust in age + time * class-structured arrangements

rulers of 1 + 2 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 10 = occupy bhava-1 personality

Shani rules

  1. Makara-1 = the balanced, contractual, equity-seeking 7th-from-Chandra ++ social personality seeks the normal, the un-exceptional
  2. Kumbha-2 = the emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra. = the family, speech, history, legacy values

Shani occupies the contractual, partnering 7th-from-Chandra

Shani-yuti-Budha suggests a person of few words and rustic speech. Reticence to speak is exacerbated by Ketu-Mithunaya-6. She never changed her story, despite the pressure (Shani) of endless police inquisitions. She repeated patiently, without exception or embroidery, exactly what she heard from Aquero and nothing more or less. The primary topic of her narrative was penance (Shani).

Shani-yuti-Zukra * Bernadette was blessed with a dark, high-boned, pastoral beauty of the region

Shani-1 lagnesha *

Shani-1-Makara rules 1-personality and 2-speech. Shani is typically pragmatic and proletarian in attitude and orientation. Rather than be sent to an insane asylum (which had been suggested) she evolved into a cloistered nun serving invisibly in a hospice (Rahu+Surya-12) distinguished only by her Shani conventional piety, humility, and commitment to service.

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

Rahu occupies zero degrees Mula

  • Mula (zero degree) Rahu-Dhanuzya * shimmering illusion of wisdom * craving for philosophical principle * mirage of fatherly generosity * extraordinary theory * unusual approach to higher truth * mask of global humanistic belief * fascinating doctrine * over-reaching catechisms * fabulous patronage * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of professorship, guidance * seeks privilege via proselytism * seeks privilege via guru-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-12 * passion for privacy * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual retreat environments, withdrawal, sanctuary; desires an important, invisible role in invisibility, intuitive guidance, private prayer, isolation, enclosures, research laboratories and libraries, Other-Worlds. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious ancestor guides. Thrives in culturally-mixed monasteries, spiritual sanctuaries, hospitals, prisons, rehab centers, and other secluded spaces. Rahu-12 trespasses the cultural boundaries of dreamwork, imagination, sanctuary, and sleep. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a dream-interpreter, an ancestor spirit-guide, a magician from distant lands.
  • Surya-yuti-Rahu * amplified ambition to attain center-stage roles, magnified confidence, passion for exotic performance arts, trickster with dramatic flair, opportunistic father, flamboyant pursuit of social mobility, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of political genius

Dhanuzya-Mula Rahu-12 ambition to have sanctuary, meditative enclosure, social invisibility

Extraordinary (Rahu) doctrine (Dhanuzya = Mula) produced from the dreamworld (12) apparition Imaculada Concepcion

risk-rewarding Rahu-Mula's passion for prayer fired her imagination as a young teenager then the cloister (12) provided the sanctuary of interiority, clairsentient prayer.


She was the center of intense attention within the Marian-Devotional community. Many were fascinated by her exotic, extraordinary miraculous visions of Aquero *"That" -- which no one else could see (Surya unique).

Although Surya as randhresha seeks coverage, obscurity, and Bernadette personally sought only retreat and anonymity, due to Surya-yuti-Rahu she became the brilliant (Surya)centerpiece of an an intense cult of ecstatic devotional healing at the holy shrine at Lourdes.

During the final years of her service Zukra-Rahu bhukti, the fatal tuberculosis on the bone was so intense that she mainly remained in her cell * Rahu-12 isolation, sequestering.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Mithunaya * dissociates from conversation, * incomplete message * empty instructions * absent from the discussion * wandering mentality * fragmented signals * not limited by commerce * ignores restriction on communication * liberation by release of narratives * applies explanatory gestures to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-6 (beneficial)* absentee enemies, disregards argumentation boundaries, medical advice, dissolves the conflicts, ambivalent toward the power of exploitation, disinterested in disagreement, irrelevance of accusations

Ketu in classroom-6 is disorienting and anti-materialistic toward accusations, indictments, complaints, litigious attacks. Essentially, one cannot be convicted of crimes, no matter how persistent the adversary.

Ketu-6 occupies Karakamsha bhava-6-Mithunaya indicating her stubborn persistence in telling her clairsentient communication (Mithunaya) story to the Church authorities. They attempted to trick her into disgracing herself or contradicting her tale, but Maria Bernarda was having none of it. She had no interest in continuing to develop the Message after is was delivered in its simplicity in the original Gascon words.

She wrote no books and granted no interviews. After the bhukti of police interrogations was complete, she spoke to no-one about her experience except to Church officials as required.

According to her congregation, the Mother Superior commanded that Bernarda should tell the complete experience in every detail to the assembled sisters, once. After that telling, she was forbidden to speak about it ever again..Ketu-Mithunaya--6 would suggest that this arrangement was agreeable to the quiet and pragmatic (Shani-1) Sister Bernarda.


The Pocket Dalai Lama,

page 22

"I would like to mention my visit to Lourdes as a pilgrim. There, in front of the cave, I experienced something very special. I felt a spiritual vibration, a kind of spiritual presence there.

And then, in front of the image of the Virgin Mary, I prayed.

I expressed my admiration for this holy place that has long been a source of inspiration and strength, that has provided spiritual solace, comfort and healing to millions of people.

And I prayed that this may continue for a long time to come.

My prayer there was not directed to any clearly defined object, like Buddha or Jesus Christ or a bodhisattva, but was simply directed to all great beings who have infinite compassion towards all sentient beings."
