Feminine Nativities


Asresas * Uraga * Azreshasha * Hydra * Aayilyam * Bhujamaghabha

BPL commentary

For Azlesa births of a feminine 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 Uraga, 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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Hydra. Their purpose is to hold securely, twist, and control.

Call to Roots

Budha-ruled Asresas are typically storytellers. They are protective, parentally concerned, emotionally responsive communicators. Intensely patriotic and often xenophobic, Naga-born harken to the old ways, the familiar rhythms, the folk stories which bind an ethno-cultural people to their roots. Azresa have a particular genius for evoking ancestral guilt, ethnic narratives, and ancient resentments.

Emotionally engaged and gesturing (Budha) in their messaging style, Hydra-born are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from political speech-scripters to parenting advice to folktale raconteurs. They specialize in tropes of root-culture, customs and habits, protection of the genetic stock, stabilization of the place of settlement, and defense of a way of life.

Bhujamaghabha speak the stories of a people in their land. It is the tale of a beginning in the watery mists, travel by ship, the struggle to farm and build, the cry for protection of a parental god, and finally the rooted possession of their place.

Naga-born = natural environmentalists who prefer conversations (Budha) about motherhood, family meals, ritual worship, seasonal holidays, food and farms, schools, roads and housing, with an emphasis on ensuring continuity of culture. As parents, Azlesa bind their children closely.

In leadership roles, the Naga-born may communicate in a swaying, hypnotic jargon, talking in the familiar folk style, appealing to the base layers of the society, recalling an ancient past. Their audience is rapt with feeling. Their rhetoric is soothing, repetitive, simple, and homey, like a parental lullaby, soothing the baby's cries.

Once lulled, Naga's quarry may be bound and captured, lashed to the safe place. It is a bondage ritual, repeated to ensure that the past customs can repeat in an unbroken, rhythmic flow.

Asresas-born may be found in socially powerful messaging roles. They come to prominence when a tribe is weakened at the root and feeling vulnerable. An ancient racial narrative is invoked. This storyline may beseech a people to strap themselves to the land and waters which give sustenance. Its clarion call rallies the fyrd, the farmers' army, the simple folk's defense of their habits, their sustenance. To this place they are bound by hunger, by vulnerability, by a need for protection.

Themes of tight bindings, holding to roots, emotional restraint, and defense of ancient folkways may contextualize Naga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Azlesa-Naga.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 94

"... this person is careless and unclean about herself and the manner in which she dresses.

  • She is not good-looking but indeed rather homely.

  • She is distinguished by some disfigurement on face or body

  • and is rather miserable and unhappy.

She has a secretive and rather bitter nature

  • and is somewhat harsh and unkind in her dealings with others,

  • where opportunity presents itself.

If she cultivated kindness and tact,

  • her shortcomings might be forgotten by those with whom she comes in contact.

But her attitude and appearance are not conducive to popularity."

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,

Emma Emma


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.

This page presents a rectified birth time of 06:12 AM based on life events.

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

Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya
