For Uttarāṣāḍha 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 Isvara, 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.
Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati 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 indriya-lagna, nakshatra-pati 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 = yuvati-pati.
Themes of clairsentient vision, personal certainty, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha.
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

A peace loving disposition.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Rilke's marriage was made complex and veiled via several factors of 8 and 12.
Ostensibly due to being aRoman-rite Catholic, he-rite Catholic, he and Clara were never divorced. (They tried.) Rilke remained married for 25 years from 1901 until his death in 1926 with one child born 1901. His communication with Clara remained lively.
Bhava-7 representing the public marriage is ruled by Chandra-2, suggesting that the psychology of Rilke's relationship with his Mother (Soma) affected his lifepartnership.
Two artists such as Rainer and Clara may support each other in unconventional yet nourishing ways, providing creative space mixed with tolerant affection.
Shukra-Dhanus in bhava-12 invisibility, seclusion, isolation. In a masculine nativity, Shukra-12 prefers a lifemate who seeks privacy and invisibility, such as an artist who cherishes their studio time.
Rilke enjoyed several multi-year, emotionally transformative love affairs in addition to his marriage. All of the women were engaged in contemplative work or sanctuary healing such as psychoanalysis (Lou Salome).
Mangala-2 activates 11.
Budha-11 activates 11th-from-11th
Rilke benefitted from a wide circle of friendship connections. He had income (11) of various kinds throughout life, and was never gripped by artists' poverty. He thrived in artists' communities, and was blessed by generous patrons (9).
Nevertheless, Budha-11 activates 6. Rilke's revenues matched the modest lifestyle of an artist. Budha's debts occurred, but overall he was able to repay the debt without being overwhelmed.
