Shrona * Hari * Apramaya * Azvattha
For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social order.
The Listener * Shaman
Śrāviṣṭha gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Śrāvaṇa are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.
Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.
As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, Shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law.
In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet, being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.
Śrāvaṇa-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Śrāvaṇa can be singers and musicians. Śrāviṣṭha gentlemen are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing. When the occasion calls for careful listening to the beat of the music, their steps may be practiced and elegant.
Measured, appropriate tone
Śrāvaṇa must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law.
Although public dignity remains important, Śrāvaṇa fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow [Chandra] of the ethnicity or the nation. Combining Chandra's orientation to the past with Shani's need for reliable rules of conduct, Shrona folks may appear to be rather old-fashioned. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in the rites of public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.
Themes of social stability, public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Śrāvaṇa's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Śrāvaṇa
QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra.p 86.
"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,
This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life
He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.
Many social workers and philanthropists have Śrāvaṇa rising.
He will also be very religious
