Mula * Nirriti * Alaxmi * Vichruta
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.
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Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation.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,
An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences
The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;
Extremely clever and capable."

Guru-yuti-Budha yukta-karaka * multiple sibling-teammate figures
In the space of one relatively brief Earthly incarnation, Chokyi Gyamtso Trungpa produced an amazing amount of literary translation, scriptural exegesis, and doctrinal reformulation.
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 supplied a foundational tool for subsequent generations of translators.
His 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.

|"and now my friends, |
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."
