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

Visaka * Radha
For Visaka births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.
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.
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.
Underneath she has a strong character , even hard at times.
She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex
Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy
She will be fond of travel and change
Her favorite color is red or crimson.
She has beautifully shaped legs."
Virginia Woolf in 1927 (VSW age 45)
