Purvazadha * Apah
For Purva-azadha births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.
Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Zukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani, Purva-phalguni, or Purva-azadha may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.
For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.
Inspirational diplomatic grace
Purvazadha are often musical entertainers and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments and making lyrical arrangements that appeal to everyday folks. Typically Apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. They are self-indulgent and pure of heart. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow. Male births in Asadhash tend toward a discordant costume sense representing the incommensurable agenda of Zukra vs. Guru.
In addition to Zukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and musical arrangements, their Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often includes inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists.
Like all Zukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance. Yet, Zukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.
Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Purva-azadha
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86
"... corresponds to rather a low type of character .
One who does not wish for and does not get the gracious things out of life.
Quarrelsome and low in appearance and manner.
He vainly considers himself above his station in life
Biographical details matched to Vimshottari Dasha calendar
Gitanjali 1861-1941 Rabindranath Tagore + uttama-Surya-yuti-Budha * was a staunch supporter of the local traditions and generally appreciated (Zukra) by the folks who shared his Bangla cultural roots. But naturally when the bandesha-4 occupies 12th from swakshetra, no matter how excellent may be the graha in 4 , there is a draining of the materializing energy of initiative regarding matters of 4. Tagore's foundational education (4) was strongly British-influenced (12th-from-4th, foreign education); therefore local folk could not fully embrace his Mesha-style championship views of schooling, farming, or homelife. Shri B.V. Raman says that Mesha is the rashi of Britain.

Distinctive features of the nativity
Rabindranath Tagore sitting with Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein in 1934
Dad = Debenranath Tagore, a prominent local aristocrat Surya-Meza. A successful Bengali businessman left well-capitalized by his own father. Rabi's grandfather was an industrialist, Dad managed Surya-yuti-Budha a collection of agricultural estates Surya-yuti-Chandra and trading operations Surya-yuti-Zukra.
In addition, dad was a champion Surya-Meza of religious reform. Debendranath Thakur promoted doctrinal and behavioral reform of the ancient traditions, which were seen to have fallen into corruption through neglect..
Tagore-Thakur wrote countless numbers of songs beloved by Bangla denizens (Chandra), poems read and studied worldwide, and was certainly the most celebrated literary figure in India during his lifetime and beyond.
Surya rules swamsha suggesting a definitive interest in musical theatre, song-dance traditions, arts and drama
Surya's numerous connections signiy the polymath, an international literati, commercial businessman, conversationalist and translator.
Surya + Zukra-yuti-Budha = charismatic (Surya) + handsome, financially privileged, artistic (Zukra) + literary (Budha)
Schooling, Cultural Roots
Surya-yuti-Chandra = vibrant "roots" attachment to the land and its ethnic settlers, albeit one's role is aristocratic and not emotionally sympathetic so much as gloriously regal.
Surya Mahadasha * age 26.9 until age 32.9
a furious passion for education, celebration of the ethnic roots and cultures, and engagement with Arya nobility of spirit.
Rabi was his mother's 13th child. She deceased when he was 14 years old. Chandra at zero degrees of Meza is overwhelmed by Somana-yuti-Surya, showing the extraordinary charm of his dad. She would have been part of a busy constellation of people with business interests Somana-yuti-Budha and artistic talent Somana-yuti-Zukra.
MARRIAGE partnership support expectations
Zukra + 3 additional graha suggests 4 life-mates= Kadambari Devi, Mrinalini Devi, Victoria Ocampo (Vijaya) and one other.Chandra in classroom-5 typically feels contented around children, artistic performance, celebrations
Rabindranath Thakur wrote more than 2000 songs, numerous musical plays, and used many musical instruments including ektara * Budha-yuti-Zukra
Bantering Budha defines career
explanation, description, instruction * Budha rules 7--peer relationships, agreements ++ 10-career, recognition, visibility
Mental agitation leading to a nervous depression could be suggested during Budha bhukti and Mangala bhukti s.
the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort instructive descriptive team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra
Tagore famously enjoyed many luxuriously emotional but non-marital relationships, some of a taboo nature. Emotional experience is enriched and expanded by uttama-Guru-8 but the conditions remain camouflaged.
heir of a legendary land-owning Bangla Brahmin family, Tagore's income was mainly produced by the hoards of extremely poor villagers living on lands that were owned by the Thakur-Thakara-Tagore Family
Guru-8 rules 4, showing his affluent family culling their hoard from landholding and the lands worked by tenant farmers but the rent amounts were set in undisclosed arrangements with the individual tenants, and the total wealth in the coffers also remained a classified fact.
Zukra rules 10th navamsha music, art, beauty, women
Tagore's wife Mrinalini was a very young maiden (age ten) at time of their ritual marriage. She was also twelve years his junior = youthful Kumara influencing kalatrakaraka Zukra Budha-yuti-Zukra. Thankur's first husbandly decision was to arrange tuition for his wife to learn to read and write Budha-yuti-Zukra. She would have been significantly controlled by her in-laws Somana-yuti-Surya Yet marriage being a community decision involving many people, her needs would also have been met by the social network as indicated by Thula 7th-from-Chandra = 11-social ecologies.
Zukra suffers moudhya-dosha = combustion. Most of Zukra's independent power to harmonize and accommodate the interests of writing has been burned away by Zukra-yuti-Surya = noble glamorous, self-referential .
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
No-Change Shani rules 2
A singularly disciplined personality, undeterred by center-stage political glamour (Shani-Simha resists political royal or celebrity entitlements). Shani-Simha-9 also displays his dad's austerity campaign of religious fundamentalism, intended to purge the local worship practices of centuries' worth of superstition and folk accruals.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Guru-8 rules Rahu-1
Guru's positive expansive auspice occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 from Dhanushya-Rahu-1. As a distinguished Bangla poet and patron of many needy local villages, as well as a global missionary of liberal education, Thakur-Tagore had to manage an unbalanced group of desires, abilities, and potentials.
Rahu Mahadasha *age 49.9 until age 68.9 * cult of personality * icon of Indian (especially Bangla) arts and literature
During the 18 years of Rahu Mahadasha, Thakur vigorously promoted several progressive schemes for education, child-welfare, and cultural diversity.
