Feminine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Zukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Zosma. Their purpose is to dramatize, glamorize, and politicize the grand theatre of creative life.

Diplomatic charm

Zukra-ruled Purvaphalguni ladies are often the diva type. Yoni-born are found in the sparkling bright worlds of political diplomacy, romance, entertainment, speculative finance, performance arts, and fashion design. Women born into a nakshatra of Zukra are often blessed by a special aptitude for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design arts, and financial affairs.

Yoni-born are happiest when playing musical instruments, dancing on the theatrical stage, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and radiate at parties, creative events, political campaigns, and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Zukra and dhanapathi Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also display financial intelligence, bargaining ability, and glamour in romantic relationships.

Like all Zukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political and creative success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Zukra and Budha.

Themes of theatrical celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

Themes of theatrical celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

  • Chandra in Magha * comforted by dramatic, wandering observance * protectors of three-fires ceremony, glorious visions, unlimited magic

Simha Sade-Sati = Ms. Fonda's bi-polar Canadian socialite mother committed suicide via the gruesome style of cutting open her throat with a razor (Ketu rules Magha). While enclosed in a mental asylum (Chandra rules 12) the tragedy is exacerbated by Shani's exacerbating drishti into the sword-cutter Mangala in bhava-7,

In an autobiography, Ms. Fonda wrote (and it was confirmed by her third ex-spouse) that her passion for her Christian doctrinal convictions was incompatible with the balancing-act of her marriage-3 to corporate executive and land investor CNN buffalo lands 1938- Ted Turner

Spouse-3 is represented by 9th-from-Chandra = Meza ruled by independent, masculine Mangala

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka

Yogakaraka Mangala-7 rules 4-foundations, cultural rhythms, ethnic basis ++ 9-doctrine, philosophy, beliefs

  • from her age 16 = Zukra-Guru bhukti, Guru-6-nichha

Ms. Fonda reports that for many years of her life, she was unable to imagine herself as being anything more than a physical-material representation = Chandra-1 mutual drishti with Mangala-7 athletic body-focused identity.

After the severe childhood trauma of her mother's suicide, some coping mechanisms were crucial to her continued physical survival as a young student and aspiring actress. As dysfunctional as it may have been, Bulimia enabled the young woman to stay grounded on Earth by purging the toxic criticism of nichha-Guru.

Psycho-emotional basis of Health

6th-from-Chandra often indicates Chandra-related health conditions = often due to psychic exhaustion from overwork in emotional servitude. The core issue is materialism as a sacred doctrine, which is the typical dysfunction of nichha-Guru.

July-1972 "Hanoi Jane" era of involvement in ideological anti-war protest and extraordinary animosity from USA public

  • According to Ms. Fonda's biography, while amidst a divorce and still suffering from bulimia , she was intending to promote a message of social responsibility (Shani). Chandra in Magha gets involved in politics but due to dissociative Ketu, Chandra in Magha does not fully understand politics.

Photographed sitting astride an enemy cannon (Mangala) and consorting with enemy soldiers (Mangala), the young ideologue (energetic Mangala rules 9-ideology) Ms. Fonda expected that her USA audience "would understand" (Guru understanding) her message.

  • Instead, her actions were interpreted as an insult and a betrayal (6) of her patriotic allegiance. The grievance of the patriotic national settlers = 6th-from-Chandra .

Guru-6 rules-5 celebrity

The nichha Guru-drishti and Shani-drishti into Kanya-2 speech = greatly enhanced by their parivartamsha = has perpetuated (Shani) the apparently indelible negative imagery of her supposed betrayal (Kanya) of homeland (Chandra). Guru-6-nichha parivartamsha Shani-8.
