Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary

For Mriga-sirasa births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the paradigm of Mangala-ruled Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, attack, and provoke.

Verbally Incisive and Commanding

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. They are often found in politicsm manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are often accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha-Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Those born in pada 1-2 pursue artistic communications, legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded enclosures, such as research laboratories, private rooms, or the imagination. They have special gifts for fantasy, imagery, and distant worlds. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are profit-driven and not averse to theft or breaking contracts for advantage. They have a special gift for marketplace systems. Friends (11) and enemies (6) have equal influence. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mriga-zirasa.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

The four-times-married Dittoheads 1951- radio polemic Rush Limbaugh was quoted by the Palm Beach Post, saying that marriage is difficult for him because "I'm too much in love with myself."

For spousal companions, RL has shown a pattern, spanning four marriages, of selecting young, attractive, and personable mates hailing from working-class backgrounds (Kanya = 7th-from-Chandra). They have been a customer service clerk, a sales agent, an exercise instructor, and a party-planner.

Mangala rules Mrigazirasa-Mithunaya-1 -communications = receives drishti of Surya-7 + Budha-7 + Rahu-9 + Guru-9

Mangala-Maraka-Draco * uttama = captain of industry, super-competitive. From His base in bhava-8, Kuja makes (profitable and successful) guerilla attacks.

Rahu-9 desires a thrilling, important guidance role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy, indoctrination. Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Surreptitious attempt to appear as a global, humanistic, ideologically-framed agent of understanding. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any).

His barrier-bending, taboo-twisting , acutely polarizing (Rahu) discourse emphasizes boundary tensions (Rahu) in race, class, and gender relations within the greater society. Although apparently fractious and disruptive, the exhortations are psychically important because they push the audience to make more clear choices.

provocative , un-civil, disruptive diatribe of the marginalized (those who feel that they have been pushed to the borders of society) = also very popular (Kumbha)

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka


  • Ketu-Singha * dissociates from creative performance, incomplete entitlement, empty intelligence, dissolute brilliance, not limited by celebrity roles, ignores restriction on political opinion, applies theatrical solipsism to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-3 * absentee sibling, off-topic communications, disinterested in daily discourse, dissolved messaging boundaries, disregards conventional discussions, eccentric or esoteric modes of writing, irrelevance of the mental narrative. One abandons the management tasks, dismisses the standard explanations, walks away from the usual descriptions.
