Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram

BPL commentary

For Uttaraphalguni births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Uttara-phalguni women are famously confident and willful. Monarchic entitlement pairs with aristocratic service via noblesse oblige. While much depends upon the characteristics of sparkling nakshatrapathi Surya, the feminine Falgun is often found in bright environments of royalty, celebrity, theatre, creative arts, amusements, and games.

Uttaraphalguni ladies radiate a profound love for living creatures, both wild and domestic. On behalf of the animal kingdom and its denizens, the women of Aryaman may undertake political activism. As righteous (and self-righteous) human mistresses of the animal world, their political style may include fiery displays of romantic idealism. They may collect animals.

Simha-Leya pada-1 features charismatic centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada-1 must hold the center of attention, whether in celebrity politics, entertainment and fashion, dramatic acting, or all three. Typically one attracts an elder husband along with many charming romances.

Kanya Pada 2-3-4 = equally dazzling, idealistic, smart, and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician due to nakshatrapathi Surya. Typically one attracts a generous husband.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"a joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • Yet, she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

Distinctive features of the nativity


Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Karkata * Bhanu * ray of light
  • Surya in bhava-11 * center of community * radiates through large-group associations * brightly iconic earnings * intelligence for networks * focus on interlinked ecologies * marketplace revenue entitlements * exemplifies knotting and knitting behaviors * distributed light * eye on friendships * creative genius works within extensive systems * sparkling center of social-economic drama * father may be an earner-socialite-organizer
  • Surya-11 parivartamsha Chandra-12


Dad = aircraft mechanic. Surya in bhava-11 = Pushyami = typically works in a hierarchical environment and is focused on earnings.

The father's extraordinary personality is not seen via Surya but rather via the enormously amplified condition of karako bhavo nashto caused by Guru in bhava-9 with the uttama-Rahu.

Self-referential Surya rules 12-private activities ++ Surya occupies the private, imaginative 12th-from-Chandra

Surya controls Zukra + Chandra + Budha in Simha-12 invisibility. Surya is engaged in parivartamsha with Chandra. Although not well perceiving each other (mother does not apprehend father's reality) the parents are nevertheless tightly interconnected via the parivartamsha.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Simha * comforted by creatively radiant, rhythmic confident dramatic display
  • Chandra in Purvaphalguni * comforted by sparkling luxury * protectors of musical entertainments * radiant luxury * brilliant beauty
  • Chandra in classroom-12 * comfort in dreams * familiar with ancestor guidance * routine withdrawal from public life * accustomed to private prayer * settled into the rhythm of secluded enclosures * acculturated to Other Worlds * needs to feel the repeating pulse of imaginative inspiration * soothed by intuitive understanding * anchored into sanctuary environments * undulating sleep
  • Somana-yuti-Budha * Emotionally communicative * sensitive to sibling figures * sheltered by workmates * calmed by a chatty cohort * needs to evangelize * makes empathetic gestures * soothed by conversation * feels like a messenger
  • Somana-yuti-Zukra * Emotionally indulgent * comforted by balanced arrangements * nourished by luxurious pleasures * sensitive to sisterly figures * needs to negotiate * seeks shelter in alliances* preference for owned properties * soothed by beauty * feels like a partner
  • Chandra-12 parivartamsha Surya-11

Somana-yuti-Budha rules bhava-11 economic earnings, fan clubs, social-participation causes

MOTHER and parenting

Guru in bhava-9 rules matribhava-4 ++ Guru occupies 6th-from-4th = Guru-yuti-Rahu. Personally, Ms. Rowling has recounted that the project of raising her first child presented circumstances of insufficient resources, social marginalization, and multiple (Guru) imbalances, due largely to the impending massive creative enterprise developed by Guru-yuti-Rahu.

Younger sister = 3rd-from-Chandra = bhava-2 Thula

After the untimely decease of her mother during Rahu-Rahu swabhukti, Ms. Rowling reports that she bonded deeply with her younger sister. The two women have lived nearby ever since. Ruler of the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra = Zukra-yuti-Chandra * Zukra-yuti-Budha which continues the bond with the mother via the bond with the sister.

Chandra in classroom-12 shyness

Ms. Rowling declares herself to be a shy person. However Kuja-Mangala-1 provides a direct critical impetus toward forward movement which more than compensates for the retiring nature of Somana-12.



  • marriage-1 = bhava-6 =
  • Lifepartner-1 worked as a television presenter in his native land of Portugal. Shani in 7th-from-Chandra rules Ketu-3 media, journalist, announcer. His exotic (relative to her) characteristics are indicated by Dhavakaraka Guru-yuti-Rahu. Generally, when multiple marriages are forecast, Brihaspati serves as the karaka for husband-1.
  • Bhava-7 = the emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra
  • Significant Kuja Dosha originating in Kuja-1 impacts the first marriage. No Kuja impact on second marriage..

2nd-from-7th-from-Chandra-12 = 2nd-from-Chandra

  • marriage-2 = bhava-1 personality.
  • Typically for 7th-from-Chandra-12, second marriage (if any) improves compatibility.
  • Second lifepartnership as a social presentation is represented by bhava-2 = lineage.
  • Zukra-12 ruler of the emotionally-motivated, traditional, lineage-preserving, acquisitive, historical 2nd-from-Chandra suggests a pleasant and emotionally available but private (12) environment for the second marriage. Zukra- yuti-Budha allows husband-2 to be younger (Budha) and previously married. Kanya-1 = physician.

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

  • Mangala-Kanya * Mangala-Kanya * vigorous pursuit of logical argumentation * proactive medication * thrust toward service * energetic assistance to the needy * push toward unfairness * champion of litigious accusation, medical treatment plans, aggressive indictments, investigative journalism
  • Mangala in bhava-1 * forward fighter * muscular champion * competitive winner * drive toward performance vitality * embodied action * primal sexuality * pursuit of progress * direct movement * physical engineering * thrusting vigor * dominating personality * pushy * dynamic innovator * energized conquests * athletic body

Kuja rules Vrischika = the career 10th navamsha ++ career 10th dazamamsha

Mangala rules 3-Writing and Publishing + 8-occult glamour, secret powers, undisclosed, tantric Healing, secrecy, transformation

Bhava-8 magical secrets = auspicious, philosophical, divinely inspired 9th-from-Chandra

Mangala-Kanya = incisive exploration = prone to investigation of crimes and aggressive analysis. According to Ms. Rowling's comments, her Mangala Mahadasha age 17-24 was uniquely difficult but, at the same time, she began writing as a psycho-emotional healing (8).

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka

lagnesha for Kanya radical lagna

  • Budha-Simha * political communications * articulation of unique creativity * delivers celebratory announcements * manufacturers bright displays * explains celebrity entitlements * delivers messages about romance * declares poetic adoration * delights in glittering phrases * manages entertainments * details the procedure for theatrical amusements * speaks with royal flamboyance * talks about gambling * plays  intelligent games * hands-arms-shoulders send dramatic gestures
  • Budha in bhava-12 * narrative of sanctuary, hermitage, quietude, interior spiritual guidance *  describe reflective contemplation, discusses the astral inner terrain, explainer of private prayer, delivers instructions for communication with distant worlds, talks about clairsentience, dreams, and visions
  • Budha-yuti-Chandra * explainer of feelings * mentalized caretaking * communicative parenting * familiar rhythmic phrasing * ancestral instruction * excellent combination for speech-writers + song-writers * needs to schedule + plan * repeats the comfortable routines * sensitive siblings * intuitively talkative mother
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * explainer of balanced arrangements * diplomatic conversations * parity-seeking discussions * manual adjustments * enjoys words * sweet descriptions * delivers instruction about relationships * articulator of equity in agreements * message of fairly bargained contracts * skilled in songwriting * talkative sister-cousin-cohort * detailed lyricist * attracts chatty partners

Budha rules the emotionally motivated community-linking, gainful, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra = radical Mithunaya-10 public recognition, career profile writing-and-publishing

= economic gainfulness from Budha-related matters such as publication, evangelism, media work, documentation, and business management inter alia.

The author of the hugely popular Harry Potter book series has countless fans (11) and she often visits with them in large groups. JKR follows an annual schedule of dozens of public appearances at which she is the fascinating center of attention receiving much glowing praise and applause. Photographs (Budha) of her image are widely circulated lagnesha.

Budha in bhava-12 adds an otherworldly quality to her publications

Budha rules 5th navamsha Mithunaya , contains Rahu = celebrity, fame

Her reading and cinema-going audience numbers in the many millions

Budha-yuti-Zukra in bhava-12 combined with the impact of randhresha Kuja-1 shows her grammatical genius for transactional spells and incantations (Budha words)

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Urisha * much hoard * many voices * many collections * believes in history * doctrine of values fulfillment * financial guidance * many cattle * expands the scope of voice-speech-song * multiple treasuries
  • Guru in bhava-9 * karako bhavo nashto * swabhava * tolerance for diverse doctrines * multiple beliefs * much much sermonizing * broad humanistic understanding * sanctimonious father * multiple father-guru-professor figures * extensive worldview * patron of philosophical perspectives * in a wifely nativity, husband-figure may be an ideologue or spiritual guide
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu mizra-karaka * multiple mix-culture opportunities * permission to bend barriers * many impostors * abundant expedience * wide scope of ambition * craving for expansion * seeks promotional advantage via globalist philosophy * optimistic toward obtainment of privilege

Guru occupies 9 = philosophy, doctrine, paradigms of belief, patronage, professorship, father-figures.

Guru rules 4- schoolteaching

In her pre-literary career, JKR was a secondary schoolteacher specializing in foreign languages Guru-yuti-Rahu * The fantasy environment of her literary works is a school . The fantasy school is an academy for higher knowledge (Guru-yuti-Rahu-9).

Guru-yuti-Rahu-uttama occupies the professionalized, leading, executive 10th-from-Chandra

Brihaspati rules 4-education + 7-relationships

colossal creative ambition and material success in literary celebrity-9

uttama-Rahu breaks paradigmatic belief (9) taboo with Guru's inclusivity, generosity, expansiveness

Charity and Breadth of Perspective

  • Ms. Rowling has been a staunch charitable (Guru) supporter of single parent families (Rahu taboo breaking) and has said publicly that she is proudest of all her life achievements of the time she lived as a single parent.


The primary karaka of language is Guru, and Brihaspati clearly expands the scope of language to dramatic proportions.

Marriages = Guru and Rahu

Ms. Rowling is twice married, and the mother of three children. Her second husband was also previously married. in a wifely nativity, two husbands are indicated = Guru-yuti-Rahu.

Atmakaraka Guru = typically the dhava-karaka ++ uttama-Rahu represents husband-2.

The first line of analysis for marriage is angles relative to Chandra. However, some profile information about the character of the lifepartners can also be extracted from Guru and any companion graha accompanying Benevolent Brihaspati.

  1. GURU The first marriage may be characterized by impulse and involves an ambitious foreigner (relative to one's own cultural roots) due to Risk-rewarding Rahu's natural opportunism. Typically with this yoga, lifemate-1 is internationally oriented (9) or hails from far-reign (foreign) land. Husband-1 = Portuguese journalist, exotic and due to Guru-9 = 6th-from-4th, the husband's behavior is often perceived as adversarial to the native's UK home cultural roots and routines.
  2. RAHU Husband-2 suggests an agent of extreme wealth (uttama-Rahu in 11th-from-11th). Husband-2 features a philosophical, globally oriented personality and a capacity to manage the extraordinary pressures of children from multiple fathers (Guru multiple and the other father is Rahu exotic) along with great celebrity and treasury (Zukra rules uttama-Rahu) which accompany their married life.

Impostor Rahu may take the camouflage of Guru, pretending to be an appropriate husband, and due to Brihaspati being yuvatipathi this claim seems correct. Yet even though exciting in character and often the catalyst which opens a completely new philosophy of life (Guru) a Rahu-dominated union may be short-lived due to acute cultural mixing which is the main job of expedient posturing of Rahu.

The nature of these differences is usually a conflict regarding social roles, propriety, decency, responsibilities, boundaries and particularly parenting patterns (4) which are trumped by Rahu the rule-breaker . Rahula-influenced marriages may endure a pattern of disrespect for socially conventional principles of parenting, spousal duties, and other tradition-maintaining roles. Often the native will perceive the Rahu-other as irresponsible or interferring.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Singha * appreciation of regal confidence * likes admiration * enjoys applause * attracted to creative performers * bargains to play radiant central roles * delighted by celebrity * charmed by romantic pleasures * pleased by dramatic display * brightly theatrical arrangements
  • Zukra-12 * seeks imaginative pleasure * private sensuality * values spiritually guided partnership * gracefully intuitive feminine-figures * agreeable sleep * visions of contemplative harmony * enjoys beautiful sanctuaries * aesthetic designs to adorn the feet * likes meditations * appreciation of Other Worlds * seeks interior balance * in a husbandly nativity, wife-figure may hail from a distant land
  • Zukra-yuti-Chandra * sweetened security * gracious caretaking * prefers a parental partner * appreciates soothing nourishment * negotiates for stability * defensive bargaining * sheltering arrangements * lovely ornaments for home-and-garden * pleasant emotional response * harmonizes wit local rhythms * aesthetic of familiar folkways * musical mother-figure * protective contracts
  • Zukra-yuti-Budha * sweetened messages * gracious explanations * talented in singing-songwriting * articulate negotiations * talkative feminine-figures * pleasant conversations * bargaining for business * sibling-cohort communicative harmony * enjoys the company of students * detailed contracts * logical arrangements

Zukra rules the emotionally-motivated, traditional, lineage-preserving, acquisitive, historical 2nd-from-Chandra = 2nd marriage, suggesting the graceful harmonious way in which husband-2 adapted to being a full-time partner-and-escort (Thula) leaving his previous professional practice in medicine for the new role of plus-one.

Zukra rules bhava-2 family genetics, family lineage, family of origin, suggesting that the family lineage had been developing her extraordinary story-telling creativity over the period of numerous generations

Zukra-yuti-Budha-12 = the natural proclivity for learning and using Older languages (2) She studied classical literature. Some of the wizardly lexicon also appears to derive from the more ancient languages of Britain. (Shani stones.)

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani rules Kumbha swamsha = Purvabhadrapada

  • Shani-Kumbha * moolatrikona 0-20 deg * heavy old economic systems, obliged to conform to the marketplace rules, pressure to maintain social linkage, vital energy compression stress zone = skin-nerves, strictly imposed regulations for electro-magnetic networking, limitations on earnings distribution, must materialize past-to-future gridwork, must sustain lowest-common-denominator proletarian communities, rigidly slow elder friends and mentors, must continue to achieve social-material goals despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-6 (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious enemies * must serve the chronic victims * must outlast the adversaries * must survive military siege * tense digestion * cautious, conventional crimes * relentless criticism * regulated guilt * constitutional illness-injury * tolerance for servitude * physicians resist innovation * enduring diseases * service fatigue * helper's burnout * resentment toward new treatments or medications * superb position for professional social workers * patiently aids the disadvantaged * steady healthworker * accepts the rules of medical institutions * lawfully supports the sick * excellent for herbalist + pharmacist * follows protocols for social problems * mature approach to drug addiction + abuse + crime * government roles in poverty + debt + loans * respected elder of an oppressed people

Shani-6 rules bhava-5 = 6th-from-Chandra = mother's health. Shani-Kumbha-6 indicates the restriction, pinching, attenuation, rigidity, and seize of the fibers in her mother's diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.

Shani rules 5-creativity, literary genius. The predictable backlash to the works of her extraordinarily creative imagination comes from cultural conservatives (Shani). Shani in Bhava-6 also indicates intractable animosities and chronic genetic health issues which manifest in the skin, nerves, calves.

Shani-Mesha in 9th navamsha may suggest challenges of the brain, particularly in older age.

Shani occupies a 6-8 angle from the critical, incisive, investigative Mangala-Kanya-1. Ms. Rowling has been involved in long-running feuds with a predatory tabloid press and is persistently (Shani) outspoken on issues of exploitation and criminal mistreatment of marginalized groups (6).

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Urisha * uttama * shimmering illusion of storage * craving for preserved collections * unusual banking practices * over-reaching acquisitions * preposterous accumulations * mesmerizing treasure-hoards * fabulous inventories * exotic food stores * amazing ship-holds + warehouses * mask of historic conservatism * intriguing acts of barreling + cooperage + containment * tantalizing libraries * marvelous hoards of valuables * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of accrued wealth * entrancing lineage knowledge * thrilling speech + song * excitement of values-fulfillment * seeks privilege via memory keeper-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-9 * passion for philosophy, preaching * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview. Rahu-9 desires a thrilling, important guidance role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy, indoctrination. Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Surreptitious attempt to appear as a global, humanistic, ideologically-framed agent of understanding. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any).
  • Guru-yuti-Rahu * amplified generosity * magnified diversity * exotic beliefs * tricky teachings * opportunistic guides * unconventional children * fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inspired philosophy * hypnotic preaching * expansive worldview * inclusive cross-cultural mixing * optimistic about risk

Rahu occupies the professionalized, leading, executive 10th-from-Chandra

Double Drishti of Guru-yuti-Rahu into 1-3-5 = 3rd and 3rd-from-3rd are enormously amplified suggesting magnificent expansion of treasury and lineage knowledge (Vrizabhva) via writing, creativity, games, entertainments

uttama-Rahu's ruler is Zukra-Singha flamboyant imagination

Harry Potter seven-book series of fantasy fiction began to be published during Rahu Mahadasha and extensions of the original series continued to publish during Guru Mahadasha

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Vrizchika * uttama * detached Witness to hidden empowerments * weird discoveries * empty secrets * eccentric identity changes * dissolute penetrations * fearless toward catastrophic change * disregards terror * ignores restriction on initiations * uncertain rebirth * releases a red-black cloud of exploratory initiatives into the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-3 * eccentric communications * disinterested in daily chat * writes on foggy abstract topics * dissolves messaging boundaries * committee-work fatigue * wandering discussions * can handle esoteric information * irrelevance of normal mental narrative * abandons management tasks * dismisses the standard explanations * walks away from conventional discourse * unless other graha in 3, may prefer to live free from younger siblings

Subject: Re: Updated Birth Time of J.K. Rowling

Dear Barbara Pijan,

I came across your page on the birth chart of J. K. Rowling, and thought you might like to know that she has now given her actual birth time as 21:10pm, apparently she announced it on Twitter but I saw the announcement on another astrology site.

Best wishes,



Thanks very much for your kind note. uses public domain information, much of it anecdotal and all of it unconfirmed. Like astrodatabank, it is a hodge-podge of miscellany and not a reliable source of vetted or confirmed birth times. Any data from these websites must be carefully rectified by a competent Jyotishi to ensure accuracy. Birth data from these websites simply cannot be taken at face value.

A moment of critical reading will show that J K Rowling has not "announced" any birth time.

The Twitter feed referenced contains a remark by JKR that her (tropical) ascendant is Aquarius.

A follower of JKR then *speculates * that a birth time which could match the middle portion of tropical Aquarius rising would be 9:10 p.m.

From this misconstrued "fact", an unreliable website has published a speculative birthtime surmised by a Twitter follower of a public figure, and now my inbox shows emails saying "apparently she announced it on Twitter". Oy.

I have rectified her time of birth to 10:33 AM based on life events.

Wishing you every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life's endeavors,

Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya
