" The eyes of others our prisons their thoughts our cages."

~~Virginia Woolf

The Waves, published 1931

"and in me too the wave rises. It swells it arches its back. I am aware once more of a new desire, something rising beneath me like the proud horse whose rider first spurs and then pulls him back.

What enemy do we now perceive advancing against us, you whom I ride now, as we stand pawing this stretch of pavement? It is death.

Death is the enemy.

It is death against whom I ride with my spear couched and my hair flying back like a young man's, like Percival's, when he galloped in India. I strike spurs into my horse.

Against you I will fling myself, unvanquished and unyielding, oDeath!"

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

Bhaga = Falgun = Utthram


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.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, 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 nakshatra-pati 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 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 nakshatra-pati 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 Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

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."

VSW's father, Leslie Stephen, was a prominent member of the social register [Surya-Makara] and admired for his fine work as a literary editor.

Nevertheless, he preferred the company of his friends, and he was not a present figure for much of Virginia's upbringing.

Dad's response to her complaints about sexual abuse from her half-brothers was what would in modern days be called gaslighting. In other words, he did asserted that her version of criminally invasive events had never occurred, and that she was simply fantasizing [Surya rules 12]
