BPL commentary

For Mriga-zirshana births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Mangala-ruled Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, attack, and provoke.

Verbally Incisive and Commanding

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. Agrahayani-born are often found in politics, manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are often accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha-Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Those born in pada 1-2 pursue artistic communications, legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded enclosures, such as research laboratories, private rooms, or the imagination. They have special gifts for fantasy, imagery, and distant worlds. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, Urisha pada-1-2 of Mriga have a stronger propensity toward governance roles.

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension of doing-vs-talking. Pada 3-4 are profit-driven and not averse to theft or breaking contracts for advantage. They have a special gift for marketplace systems. Friends (11) and enemies (6) have equal influence. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Mrigazirshana-Invaka.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

a poem by Rudyard Kilpling

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you

But make allowance for their doubting too,

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,

If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breath a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;

If all men count with you, but none too much,

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

International House Shifts * urya-8 activates 4 locality.

SRK generated a lifetime pattern of international house-shifts which continued throughout his married adulthood. Seeking transformative change, he moved often between India his birth-land, England, New England (USA) and South Africa.


Surya-Dhanuzya rules 4-homeland

RK's Imperialistic literature and patriotic songs were wildly popular with Commonwealth and Euro-American readers during the heyday of the British Empire.

More than simply a literary author and songwriter, RK was a highly symbolic male personality. Admirers declared him to embody the genius [Surya] of a humanistic vision of global civilization Surya-Dhanuzya.

RK was the first English-language author to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature during the svabhukti of his yogakaraka dharmesha uttama-Shani. He remains the youngest writer ever to receive that prize

However, after the colonialist viewpoint had dissipated with the collapse of Empire following WW-2, RK's formerly praised genius was questioned. Eventually, literary critics disregarded RK's work as a romanticized artifact of Imperial culture.

After WW-2, RK's award of 1907 Nobel Prize in Literature began to be cited as a cautionary example of misguided enthusiasm among the tiny Euro-elite of prize-givers, and a call to be more alert to the political impact of Nobel Prizes.

Chandra * matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)


Atmakaraka homeland, familiarity, emotional sensitivity, rhythms, rates, routines, seasonal flow

Chandra in classroom-1 rules Karkata-3 Karakamsha = writing, publication

uttama-Chandra activates Arudha lagna Karkata-3 = bhava-3 writing publications management administration scheduling

Icon of British Paternalism

In his day, Kipling was an enormously feted writer and celebrated public figure. RK appeared to many of his Edwardian generation to have epitomized the experience of a paternalistic [Chandra] colonial ruling elite, who were portrayed as kindly protectors Chandra-Urisha , slowly educating the childlike, vulnerable populations of their colonies.

Chandra in classroom-1 RK's robust language praising king and empire resonated deeply with a people seeking pride in their ethnic identity.

Sadly, RK's literary reputation has not withstood the test of time. Modern literary critics tend to disparage his characterizations as condescending rather than intriguing.

Conflict and upheaval: Chandra occupies 6/8 from secretive Dhanuzya-8 = hidden liaisons, wife's family

Somana's 6/8 angle from the intensely clandestine activities of bhava-8 containing RK's Budha + Surya + Guru + Mangala + Zukra.

  • RK would have experienced emotional conflict in virtually all of his life's activities. In particular, matters of the identity (1) and cultural customs (Chandra-1) would have been contentious and potentially toxic.
  • RK's sexual tastes Zukra+Kuja in Mula-8 created undisclosed relationships which were incompatible with cultural conventions.


Mom = Alice Macdonald Kipling, an artist and socialite. She was admired for her beauty and her wit. a popular entertainer, a familiar figure to all in their Anglo-Indian social class, a writer and conversationalist, one of four celebrity sisters * Chandra activates 3-siblings. Her personality and social connections aided her son's career.

Defining influence of Mother and parents-overall

Chandra in classroom-1 = personally identified with and emotionally close to both parents during his entire lifetime. RK often took long solo visits with his parents, leaving his wife and children behind.

RK's parents viscerally disliked his wife * Zukra-8 in awkward angle shad-ashtaka 6/8 toward Chandra-1 +++ Zukra-8 -Mula located in trauma-inducing, discovering, revealing, danger-seeking 8th-from-Chandra

Extramarital partners appear via four graha yuti Zukra.

The additionals are located in camouflaged bhava-8 suggesting a code of secrecy among the extras, who generally all knew each other. RK belonged to a literary men's club in London where he socialized with men like himself who identified with masculinity and Empire.

  • The men with whom RK socialized in England, New England, and South Africe, were reportedly not enamored of the frustrated and controlling Mrs. Kipling. She was nonetheless an unmoveable presence in RK's life seen via strict Shani in 7th navamsha ++ her Vrischika Chandra in his 7th-from-Chandra-1

Wife's family = 8 = 8th-from-Chandra * contains Zukra + Kuja + Budha (all in Mula) + Surya + Guru.

One of her brothers, the author-publisher Wolcott Balestier, is said to have been Kipling's romantic lover. Another of her brothers Beatty Balestier (Ballister) was their landlord in Vermont, USA; he was also Kipling's marketing, distribution, and publishing agent upon whose good will Kipling's career much depended.

Kipling had an extremely complex and demanding relationship with his in-laws.

  • Recently uncovered Literary correspondence, hidden since the 1880's, suggests that RK had passionate involvement with both of his wife's brothers.
  • Despite having been very productive in New England living near his wife's family, after a violent disagreement with his brother-in-law, RK suddenly removed his young family back to southern England.

His in-laws operated the publishing house which handled his promotions, distributions, and royalties. RK never worked with any other publishers.

MARRIAGE partnership mutual support expectations


  • = = bhava-7 contractual relationships. RK was married once. The union was said to be enduring, but unhappy.

7th-from-Chandra ruled by Mula-Kuja-8 ++ Mula-Kuja-8 takes drishti from disciplining uttama-Shani-6

Their marriage was said to have been lacking attraction while holding customary roles .RK's Chandra in classroom-1 expresses emotional alignment with family protection, housekeeping, and parenting. He adored his children and was devastated when 2 of his three children died before finishing their 18th year.

RK was promoted as a model parent-writer, who produced much-beloved books for children. However friends reported that his spousal affections were limited. RK took extended trips to visit male friends, or his parents [Chandra] leaving his wife unsupported for long periods of time. Intensifying matters is the powerful uttama-Chandra in 6/8 adversarial shad-ashtakya to kalatra-karaka Zukra, suggesting that RK's emotional nature was misaligned with that of his wife..

Comfort Zone

Chandra in Vrishabha * rules the managing, commercial 3rd-from-Chandra familiar rhythms and routines. Karkata 3 = also the arudha lagna ++ the karakamsha. This geometry suggests that one is most comfortable emotionally when working on a project. Carrie and Rudyard produced a lifetime of literary projects, and most of them enjoyed significant commercial success.

Loss of two children * 6 graha in 12th-from-5th

TrTragically, two of his three children died prematurely: a daughter of pneumonia age-6 and a son by shrapnel in WW-1 age-18. Attributable to the weight of graha in 4.

  • Mangala yuvati-pati + vyaya-pati
  • Kuja-8-Mula rules both 7 and the marriage-adversarial 6th-from-7th
  • Kuja + Zukra + Budha occupy Mula
  • Kuja activates 7th-from Chandra in classroom-1

Kuja involved RK in numerous discreet relationships with men (including with both of Carrie's brothers) which caused increasing unhappiness in hthe marriage.

Mangala Mahadasha * age 0.5 until age 7.5

Kipling accounted the earliest years of life to have been blissful and idyllic. He remembered the joy of a close supportive bond with his parents (7 = 4th-from-4th + 7th-from-Chandra), their siblings (his uncles and aunts) and his younger sister.
