Masculine Nativities

Mūla - Vichruta

Nirriti - Alaxmi

BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.

Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness . Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.

Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.

In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.

Mūla's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom. Yet, the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos have equal utility to compassion and love.

Because Alakshmi-born preach their principles while dismissing [Ketu] the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.

When involved in religious or political indoctrination, [Mūla] born may expound an eschatology of annihilation. , Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military, priesthood, politics, and organized crime.

mūla] born may suffer from restless windiness (vata dosha).

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

" ... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician.

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust behind him.

Extremely clever and capable ." [end quote]
