Masculine Nativities

Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta


BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, 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 gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.

Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.

In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.

Mula's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom. Yet the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos have equal utility to compassion and love.

Because Alakmi-born preach their principles while dismissing (Ketu) the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.

When involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula-born may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.

Mula may suffer from restless windiness (vata dosha).

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

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.


"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable."

Guru-yuti-Budha yukta-karaka * multiple sibling-teammate figures

Guru in bhava-3 * Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4 * Many Publications

In the space of one relatively brief Earthly incarnation, Chokyi Gyamtso Trungpa produced an amazing amount of literary translation, scriptural exegesis, and doctrinal reformulation.

Guru in bhava-3 * Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4 * Many Conferences and Seminars

The Vidyadhara gave over five thousand talks during conferences, seminars, and art gallery openings - to name just a few of his speaking venues. ,He participated in countless focused conversations and performances. A capable executive, he established at least 100 meditation centers, and engaged successfully with Western students of the historically Eastern philosophies.

Guru-yuti-Budha * Preaching

His mission was to liberate the Vajrayana traditions of Tibet from the great weight of cultural accrual, so that the teachings might not die even though the Chinese Army was aggressively destroying the monastic libraries and shrines that had held these dharma (reality) teachings for centuries.

Guru-yuti-Budha * Prolific Translator-Interpreter

Learning university English with remarkable alacrity, Trungpa became a hyper-productive translator-interpreter of the Vajrayana Tibetan-language literary canon. He chose collocative phrases and invented metaphors to build a bridge between the often opaque, scholastic, often extremely terse Tibetan prosody on the original side to the modern, superficial, materially denotative English on the other side. It looked impossible but he had his mission and he did it.

As commentators often note, Trungpa's supervisory guidance to his diligent translation committees has generated an inventory of translation-tables that are habitually applied to rendering of Vajrayana short-hand sayings into modern English. These standard English phrases are evident in usage of most dedicated Buddhist bridge translator-interpreters working today. In addition to talks, photographs, parties, and paintings, Trungpa was a productive individual writer and many of his titles are still top sellers in the philosophy category.

  • Zukra-Makara-Draco * appreciation of authoritative status * likes architectural structure * attracted to officials * prefers law-and-order * beautiful bones * enjoys social position * class-conscious aesthetic * pleasures of social regulation * hierarchical arrangements

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Meena * heavy old dreams, tightly regulated imagination, obliged to conform to the will of the cetaceans, vital energy compression stress zone = feet, strictly imposed conditions of sanctuary, must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian prayer, slow elder diviners, limited access to ancient ancestor guides, must materialize the vision, must sustain the effort of connecting the material senses with the astral vision despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-4 * Structured, orderly, time-conscious childhood foundations. One must remain in place, have to root, defend, reinforce the existing shelter. Cautious, conventional mother-figures. Tense childhood, educational fatigue, chronic household scarcity; strict boundaries; heavy legacy pressure to reinforce customary cultural boundaries. Resistance to new homes and active construction. Resentment toward changes in predictable routine. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles as parent, schoolteacher, police, border defense, fisher, farmer, ritual worship, temple maintenance, guardian of local infrastructure.
  • Guru-3 parivartamsha Shani-4

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

  • Rahu-Thula-Vanika * shimmering illusion of balance * craving for trade * mask of fairly bargained contracts * over-reaching advocacy * outsider who cleverly insinuates into trusted counseling roles * sweetly unconventional adjudication * marvelously accommodating arrangements * exciting culturally-mixed partnerships * may be obsessed with brokerage * mirage of suave deal-making * extraordinary terms of mutual agreement * graciously boundary-bending alliances * pleasantly ambitious diplomacy * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of equity-assured negotiation * seeks privilege via adviser-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-11 * passion for prizes, achievements * in Roguish Rahu's swabhava co-ruled with Sober Shani ,* the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual social goals and economic attainments. Desires an important, linkage role in social participation and financial networks. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious friends. Craves profit and gain. Rahu-11 thrives in culturally-mixed commodity-exchange systems. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a friend, a voluntary linker, an economic achiever, a relative of the father's people. Rahu-11 trespasses the cultural boundaries of friendship and community. Boundary-breeching, risk-rewarding Rahu typically enjoys material success in marketplace profits, revenue, earnings due to His social-participation genius.
