Masculine Nativities

Jyeztha

Kita * Thrikketta


BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.


Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatra-pati Budha, often Jyeztha-born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power.

In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha-Antares

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85


"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

FATHER

Dad = a complex person as demonstrated by the FIVE graha accompanying pitrikaraka Surya-Meena.

Papa was a disavowed priest, a high-ranking civil servant in the capital city of Paris Surya in bhava-5 politics, an artist Surya-yuti-Zukra-uttama, a poet, a musician, a creative personality.

CB's father was 34 years elder to his mother. Dad had compounded a significant financial estate before he died, and little Charles was bequeathed a large financial inheritance.

Step-Father = 8th-from-Surya = bhava-12 Thula

When little Charles was seven years old, his mother remarried a strict disciplinarian retired military officer . = Shani transit to Mithunaya-8 + Sade-Sati + Shani drishti to 10-2-5

CB's step-father was said to have prevented Baudelaire from squandering his paternal inheritance (which Charles spent frivolously and wildly in his 22nd year) by intervening through the lawcourts. Baudelaire wrote that he despised his stepfather for his disciplining, constraining ways, and for taking his mother's attentions.

However, most observers recognized that his stepfather was a force of balance (Thula) and order (Shani) who acted in a paternally responsible fashion in regard to the inheritance money.

Wonderfully concise Excerpt from the biographers at http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Baudelaire,_Charles
QUOTATION

"French poet tormented by religion and the struggle between good and evil in man, suffused with his deeply Catholic sense of sin and remorse. His "Flowers of Evil" was condemned as immoral in 1857, confiscated by authorities for offending public morals. He was a Catholic and a Satanist, a debauchee and mystic, cynical sensualist and yearner for purity. Sexually morbid and a sadist, he sought the unbathed women "of the streets."

In his extraordinarily complicated life, he had a suffocatingly intimate relationship with his bewildered mother, who lovingly nurtured and then callously ignored his lifelong dependence on her which reached classically Oedipal proportions. He was the son of a lapsed Catholic priest , a ... cultured epicurean who passed onto his son his love of art. After his dad died in 1827, his mom married Col. Jacques Aupicki, a dour career diplomat who, disgusted by his high-strung stepson's eccentricities, tried to impose military standards of discipline and conduct, values that Baudelaire disavowed in a rebellion that lasted the rest of his life.

By the time he came into his inheritance from his birth father in 1842, he was already exorbitantly precocious and foppish, squandering over a half of his considerable fortune in 18 months. His taste ran to elegant fashion, and he would have gone through the entire amount had not his stepfather brought the spending spree to a halt with legal intervention. Much to his humiliation, Baudelaire was then forced to petition an attorney for his funds, cap in hand, living on a meager monthly allowance.

His spending spree was the only time in his short and miserable life that he was ever without financial stress. His writings were not only scandalous, but paid poorly, and he once remarked that his income for years was the equivalent of the price of two cigars a day.

He lived in dilapidated fleabag hotels, eking out a precarious existence as a poet, art critic and translator of Edgar Allan Poe. He changed his address in Paris about 30 times during his adult life, once moving six times in a single month in 1885, seeking to evade creditors.

Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs du Mal" came out in 1857, unleashing a fire storm of criticism and nearly a century of acrimonious litigation.

Addicted to ether capsules and laudanum (opium), he sought to numb himself to the ravaging effects of syphilis , contacted in the Paris Latin Quarter as a young man. He was a cynical voluptuary, an amoral aesthete who shocked his friends by dying his hair green and sprinkling his conversation with non sequiturs. He referred to "the intoxicating pleasure of displeasing", as he refused any semblance of conventionality but formed a lifelong liaison with Jeanne Duval, the "Black Venus" of his "Fleurs," a mixed-race drug-addicted prostitute.

The first signs of insanity appeared in 1862. In his final years his skin was discolored and his joints affected. He collapsed in March 1866 while admiring an architectural point of beauty with friends in Belgium. He returned to Paris in a private railroad car some months later and over the next 12 months suffered a slow death from syphilis (GPI). By early 1867 he scarcely remembered his own name; by April he had lost his will to live; and on 8/31/1867, he died in his mother's arms in Paris."
