"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!"

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativities

Visaka * Radha


BPL commentary

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

Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Visaka, 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 Radhika, 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.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.


Growth Shocks

Thula - Vanika pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings.

Pada 1-2-3 may be experts on the subject of relationships, both seen and unseen. They have a broad understanding of the power of polarities. They are often found in advising and recommending roles (Zukra) which engage ideology or theory (Guru) such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Thula-Visaka, the husband may also be impoverished or ailing (due to Guru rules 3-6 from Thula).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-treasury, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement, politics. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic action. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 ladies are often found in teaching-and-healing work, especially when using their expertise with the sexual-reproductive energies.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic Shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.


"... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character , even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."

Shani in Bhava-6 rules Makara Arudha lagna = bhava-3 publishing

Shani in Bhava-6 rules Makara-3 conventional business. Although famed for her creative writing, VSW was a conventional married businesswoman who maintained a convincing external facade of bourgeoisie respectability even while her personal adventures were more interesting

FAMILY ANIMOSITIES

Nichha-Shani-yuti-Guru occupy the parents' values = 2nd-from-Chandra. Her parents were diversely gifted individuals who nevertheless harmed VSW via their over-commitment (Shani workload) and their insistence on pursuing their own artistic entitlements (Guru 2 + 5). VSW's mother's family were particularly gifted and troubled = rulers of 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 occupy 2nd-from-Chandra.

As an adult, VSW often forgot to eat. Eventually, Shani-Meza * nichha in 2nd-from-Chandra contributed to her debilitating anorexia.

CHRONIC ILLNESS * Mental-Physical

Shani-Meza * nichha can indicates brain issues. In ripu-bhava-6, the brain becomes adversarial to one's health.

It is believed that during most of her adult life, VSW suffered the chronic (Shani) effects of bi-polar disorder . She endured extreme mood-swings and severe depression.

Shani maintains social conformity

VSW's suspected bi-polar disorder (manic-depression) was kept under cover from her friends and family. The extreme mood swings and the almost tangible presence of her tortured mind was often recorded in her private writings .

The condition resolved with her suicide by self-drowning in a river (age 59). Her method was to load her pockets with rocks so that her body was too heavy (Shani) to float in the cold water of the River Ouse. VSW drowned.

Few knew of her extreme sorrow and emotional exhaustion. In the event of her drowning death, many expressed shock and surprise

Rahu-Shani bhukti

Extraordinary Shani-Pressure at the time of Suicide

  • in earlier years, her most severe episodes occurred during terrible grief following the death of her mother (VSw age 13) then the death of her father (VSW age 22)
  • other events too
  • in summer 1940, the Nazi Blitzkrieg destroyed her home. VWS and Leonard moved to a new location. Within a month, the Nazi bombs again destroyed her new home.
  • This final catastrophe provoked a series of mental collapses leading to suicide.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Rahu-Vrizchika * shimmering illusion of mystery * craving for rebirthed identity * expedient gains from dangerous threats * extravagantly explosive hidden forces * preposterous camouflage * mesmerizing power of rejuvenation * fabulous surgeries * exotic secret initiations * mask of deep inner transformations * fascinating arcane knowledge * over-reaching intrigue * marvelous hidden liaisons * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of healing shakti * thrilling emergency intervention * seeks privilege via revelatory disclosures * amazingly shocking insights * self-promotion via exciting discovery-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-1 * passion for fleshly vitality * in swabhava of Competitive Kuja, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous physical visage * extraordinary athletic action * outsider who cleverly insinuates into a noble identity * smoky, oily aura * desires competitive advantage * exceptionally recognizable appearance * exhilarating force of nature * thrilling champion of non-standard lifestyles * social mobility via dynamic movement * powerful personality * innovative behavior challenges existing norms * culturally mixed self-image * embodies exciting new energies * self-promotion via blood-and-birth * double agent * over-reaching ambition for empowered individuality * craves special importance * trespasses cultural limitations of race-class-creed-gender * fascinating figure * may represent a cult of personality

VSW = a splendid prose writer and energetic publisher receiving broad public acclaim for her literary works. Much of her literary success was due to her extraordinary (Rahu) innovation of the unprecedented genre of stream-of-consciousness writing and her ability to exemplify the fascinating libertine patter via her terribly thin, pale, personal appearance Rahu in bhava-1.

Risk-rewarding Rahu promotes incisive penetrating narratives while Rahu's ruler the productive. Adding impetus to bravado, self-destructive lagnesha Mangala-Mithunaya-8 explores boundary-breeching experiences. The writing process was personally transformative and the outcome of VSW's message was socially transformative, especially for social discourse on women's sexuality.


Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka * vasana-karaka (vacuum)

  • Ketu-Urisha * financially dissociates from collections * breaks-up compulsive acquisition * incomplete containment * dissolved treasury * 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-7 * equably ambivalent toward agreements * absentee advocates * disregards contractual loyalties * disinterested in mutuality * wanders from the middle-balance * irrelevance of equity * surrenders alliances * abandons the usual covenants * ignores advice * incoherent promises * liberation via surrendered negotiations * unless other graha in 7, may prefer to live free from partners

Ketu in the literary 3rd-from-Chandra = mental wandering, repeating narratives of abandonment, and dissociation

Although VSW enjoyed her husband's loyal friendship during their many decades together, like Sartre she wrote that fidelity in marriage was an unnecessary institution, not linked to survival

She bonded with several partners inside their social circle of writers and artists = Ketu-7 ruled by Zukra-3
