" 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, O Death!"

Feminine Public-Figure Examples


Purnavasi - Vutvrta - Jamitra


For Saptarishi births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Guru may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the masculine companion

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Jamitra, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential..

Guidance is provided by emissaries from the realm of the Twin Gardeners called Castor-and-Pollux. Their purpose is restoration, renewal, and rehabilitation of lost knowledge..

High forehead. Punarvasu have a global perspective. The majority of Aditya-born nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume interpretive guidance roles.

Instructing, Explaining, Describing

[Mithuna - Dvamdva] pada 1-2-3 represent Guru's rulership of 7-agreements ++ 10-leadership, while also expressing the tension between broad-view Brihaspati versus detail-oriented Bantering Budha. Pada 1-2-3 are blessed with an expansive human wisdom for evocative writing or speaking. Often excellent writers who can facilitate spiritual growth via specific explanation and description. Pada 1-2-3 are often found in the literary arts, in teaching roles, in academic advising, as travel guides, and as poets who describe the natural world.

[Karkata - Kadaga] -pada-4 represents Guru's rulership of 6-imbalance ++ 9-philosophy. Pada-4 also embodies the tension between global, paternalistic Guru versus local, motherly Chandra. Often these remarkable women are found in the gardening and domestic realms. Natural herbal physicians, they understand and can elicit the wisdom of the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms. Pada-4 may also emerge into the religious professions where they may grow a garden of psycho-intuitive understanding.

Although the priestly husband seeks wisdom, for Karkata-Punarvasu the husband may also be adversarial, polluted, impoverished, or ailing (due to Guru activates 6). Check 7th-from-Chandra.

Themes of restoration of lost knowledge , gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu - Aditya

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde (1939) Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 93

" ... will be successful in everything she undertakes.

If she elects to have a career of her own,

  • she will become very well known and highly respected.

If she marries,

  • she will have a husband and children who adore her

  • and her domestic life will be most happy .

Her house will be orderly and well kept,

  • as she is very particular and discriminating,

  • and insists on beautiful and harmonious surroundings for herself and family.

Her health is good

  • except that she will suffer from gastric complaints

  • and must be careful in her diet."

[Collapsing Ketu]

kavandha-karaka [headless] * chidra-karaka [gaping] * vasana-karaka [vacuum]

[beneficial placement for Mithuna indriya-lagna ]

check Ketu's ruler Shukra for compensating agreements despite private disengagement

[dissociated from invisible historical roles]

[few/no boundaries within sensual private spaces]

[no barriers to asset movement between foreign lands]

[potentially unfettered awareness in cloistered earthy settings]

[release from treasury-caused imprisonment]

[unencumbered meditation upon dematerialized essence of inner wealth]

[unlimited sound-color fantasy worlds]

[unafraid of imagined financial annihilation]

[may perceive non-verbal intuitive preservative guidance]

[passively fixated on ambitiously secretive-emerging Rahu-Vṛścika-6 enemies, animals, assistants, servants]


[tonal-historic Rohiṇī-2] [vargottamsha] [navamsha Ketu-Urisha] intuitively dispersing liberating sensual values

  • [Ketu-Urisha] financially dissociates from collections * breaks-up compulsive acquisition * incomplete containment * assesses the ineffable * dissolved treasury * martyr to pleasures * disregards conventional valuations * not limited by historical knowledge * incoherent lineage * ignores restriction on speech-voice-sight * releases a rich blue cloud of hoarded goods into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-12] forsaken by ghosts [beneficial] * eccentric research * limitless imagination * scattered intuitive insights * ambivalent toward foreigners * peculiar paternal grandmother * blurs fantasy boundaries * unstructured meditations * passive isolation * foggy clairsentience * releases invisibility * dissolves privacy * abandons the veil between perceptual worlds * ignores imprisonment * unless other graha in 12, may prefer to live free from father's mother + mother's father


[Ketu in classroom-12] occupies the literary 3rd-from-Chandra = mental wandering, repeating narratives of abandonment, and dissociation
