For Uttara-azadha births of a masculine 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.
Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Suyra and Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns.
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.
Often found in the role of philosopher, professor, or guru-figure. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine.
Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic Surya. From the Makara lagna, nakshatra-pati 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.. Their emotional stability in partnership arises from Chandra = yuvati-pati.
Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, 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 very good, honest, and sincere character...
A peace loving disposition.
Eager to live and let live.
A good counselor in times of need or trouble.
