Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Mūla - Vichruta

Nirriti - Alaxmi


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

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlewomen are ready to sacrifice everything in an ongoing act of complete and devastating spiritual surrender. Those born under auspice of nakshatra-pati Nirriti may feel intense yearning for emptiness, evacuation, annihilation, and deconstruction of the superficial personality which opens the gateway into utter rebirth..

Akasha-born feminine beings may find empowerment in acts of purgative spiritual healing. Often their gifts express in physical healing when the mechanism is purging, profound cleansing, expulsion, or eradication. Purification at the root is their specialty.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.[1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 98

" ... very little happiness through the life ...

  • due to the secret and destructive thoughts of the native

  • and her proud and stubborn nature.

To understand this is a help.

  • But a determined effort must be made to rectify it.

The fault lies entirely within herself,

  • her nature preventing her from being happy in any relationship.

She will have many love affairs and trouble through themr.

If she marries, she will be unhappy

  • because of her inability to compromise

  • and her husband will die in seven years from the time of the marriage.

She has a weak constitution and her health will be uncertain,

  • due again to the destructive thoughts

  • which she harbors continually."

  • [folk-reputation 10th-from-Chandra collecting, preserving, enriching, storytelling, linguistic, musical, heritage, knowledgeable, financial duties performed in the regulatory, ordering, institutional, hierarchical style of Makara - Draco-2]

Chandra-Guru in dashamamsha -1 = a career in spiritual caretaking [Chandra] and teaching within religious schools [Dhanus] .

  • MT was an elementary school teacher for many years, supervising the fundamental [Chandra] education of children before entering the highest calling
  • the 10th D-10 = Kanya, indicating the comprehensive ministries of service which defined her public career

MT's vocation could be said to have been sealed as early as the age of fourteen, during her Chandra-Shukra bhukti. She had already tasted exploitation, contempt, and humiliation through shaming-scandal along with domination from a self-centered father * extreme karako bhavo nashto due to Simha-Surya + Mangala-9.

  • Having survived that awful childhood phase -- partly via protection of religious conviction inherent in dharmesha-9 Surya -- which in addition to a self-important father gives young Agnes gives a lifetime robust ego-membrane -- it was probably very clear to her what she needed to do.

  • Mother Teresa joined her life to the strictly ranked global hierarchy of Roman-Rite adherent Church as an austerity-avowed nun when she was 17 -- after which she made a decision, never to see her mother or her sister again.

  • Makara 10th navamsha = the massive hierarchy of the RC-Church, and her renegade [Rahu] role in that rigid pyramid-structure

Like a smallpox survivor, her scars proved her vitality and she was no longer afraid of anything. That is perhaps the most striking feature of this fascinating nativity. She could be subject to the most horrific abuses and oppression but due to [uchcha] Rahu-6 she was simply not afraid. Faith protected her and she knew that fact as a core truth for the lifetime [9, extremely strong Surya] .


Chandra randhresha along with [nīcha] Shani involved in a nishturabhashi yoga in bharani can suggest a materialistic, punitive, and potentially abusive mother. Young Agnes left home at 17 and travelled to Ireland to join a Catholic convent. She never spoke to her mother or her sisters again.

Mother Teresa's nativity suggests that she suffered from an exceptionally difficult relationship with harshly strict parents.

She may have experienced feeling unwanted and destitute by parents [especially mom] who were not unconditional in their love but rather demanded social performance from her.r.

Rahu-[uchcha] 6 along with Harsha Yoga allows MT to enter the most daunting, dangerous, toxic, deathly, polluted [socially and chemically] and viciously exploited situations without harm to self.

Rahu signals the presence of criminal exploitation, prostitution, drugs, mafiosi, illegal activities, but also fraudulently earned wealth and apparent material success through these methods.

[uchcha] Rahu in bhava-6 Engages in edgy, boundary-crossing, shadowy, exotic, or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting ministries of service.

powerful desire [Rahu] to minister [6] during conditions of death [8] in the service of the most degraded and needy beings

chalakaraka Rahu in bhava 6

  • Affinity and ambition toward the poor, sick, and underclass

  • ambition to be recognized and receive the privileges accorded to a clever adversary , amischievous and devious servant , an adventurous and likely illegal druggist, acrafty litigator-accuser, or a great minister of service to the distrusted, diseased, dispossessed and afflicted.

  • Often signifies strategic advances via involvement with mafia, criminals, exploitation, and drugs. Rahu-6 is a difficult but ultimately successful placement for one committed to a life ministry of service.

chidrakaraka Ketu in bhava 12 = Karakamsha

ambivalence toward prayer, dreams, spiritual retreat, disregard for conventions of the bedroom barrier-free imagination, but often ignores guidance from the ancestors generally unable to maintain privacy or attain sanctuary due to dispersal of the aura-protective shell

Ketu in D-1 Vṛścikavyayabhava suggests that prayer [12] seems beheaded and often directionless, Yet, the native has no boundaries that would prevent the flow of spiritual instruction.

Thus while permanently dissatisfied with the quality of spiritual engagement, mother Teresa was not blocked in any way from receiving spiritual directives and she did what she did - the most basic and fundamental sanctuary provision to those in process of leaving their bodies - with complete abandon. Scattered Ketu is strong as co-lord of Vṛścika= intense initiation and transformation [Vṛścika] in the Ketu-ized context of destitution, homelessness, abandonment and despair.

Collapsing Ketu -12-Vṛścika= intense, forcefully emerging, sudden, shocking, transformative changes especially the abrupt scattering of the life-force cohering energy at moment of cutting the silver cord

Ketu in 12 gives a certain inbuilt psychic homing device. Seeming to be a wanderer, one is actually traveling a purposeful path of pilgrimage and prayer. Slowly and circuitously, one returns to the land which provides the lifetime spiritual center. For Mother Teresa, that was India. In classic Ketu style, she followed her spiritual instincts to bring the religion of no-caste-barriers healing [Christianity] back to the land of her Roma ancestors...

and having experienced extreme and bitter disappointment, one has almost no choice but to forgive - and this is when the good stuff starts to happen
