Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Uttarazadha - Vaizva

BPL commentary

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.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. Nakshatrapathi 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, nakshatrapathi 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 = yuvathipathi.

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 peace loving disposition.

Eager to live and let live.

A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

  • Such a person makes a good and steady friend,

  • whose friendship is to be valued because it will stand the tests of time and adversity."

As a young man in Poland during WW-2, Father Wojtyla had a dramatic personal experience of injustice and terror; he often spoke of the monstrosity of the killings. Yet the Roman-rite Catholic hierarchy chose not to protest the horrors of genocide and torture during the war or afterward, and Father Wojtyla chose not to lay blame but rather to continue to promulgate the stance of invisibility (12) and non-involvement. Budha-yuti-Ketu the Witness.

  • As a young man in Poland in 1940, Lolek was hit hard by a streetcar, suffering a fractured skull * on 29-Feb-1944 , KW was again subject to blunt-force trauma when hit by a German army truck; severe concussion and shoulder injury (again) * Rahu-Rahu swabhukti Later he would develop the devastatingly painful condition called Parkinson's Disease. The Vatican would hide KW's health crisis from the public for 12 years.

Guru-Karkata-8 * uttama = Many, many secrets and mysteries, covering areas from finance to relationships to health.

Although KW was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991 during his Shani-Rahu bhukti, his doctor notified only the top brass of the Vatican. They kept KW's health conditions secret from the devout public. Finally after 12 years, in 2003, the Vatican announced KW'ss painful degeneration into the tremors and aches of Parkinson's disease. Many were called to a deeper faith through his display of physical suffering.
