Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman * Bhaga * Falgun * Utthram
For Uttaraphalguni births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.
Uttara-phalguni women are famously confident and willful. Monarchic entitlement pairs with aristocratic service via noblesse oblige. While much depends upon the characteristics of sparkling nakshatrapathi Surya, the feminine Falgun is often found in bright environments of royalty, celebrity, theatre, creative arts, amusements, and games.
Uttaraphalguni ladies radiate a profound love for living creatures, both wild and domestic. On behalf of the animal kingdom and its denizens, the women of Aryaman may undertake political activism. As righteous (and self-righteous) human mistresses of the animal world, their political style may include fiery displays of romantic idealism. They may collect animals.
Simha-Leya pada-1 features charismatic centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada-1 must hold the center of attention, whether in celebrity politics, entertainment and fashion, dramatic acting, or all three. Typically an elder husband and many romances.
Kanya Pada 2-3-4 = equally dazzling, idealistic, smart, and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician due to nakshatrapathi Surya. Typically a younger husband and many romances.
Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95
"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.
She is born to a family with social background
and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities
She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.
She prefers to choose her friends
She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

Salient features of the Nativity |
Surya--Uttarabhadra (enduring fortune) occupies the career defining 10th-from-Chandra
Franklin's father was a famed preacher in the tradition of African-American Christian worship. Known as the "man with the million dollar voice", he was invited to deliver emotionally rousing sermons in Black churches throughout the Eastern USA. His celebrity reputation was so compelling that he formed peer relationships with notable singers, performers, and ministers of the day. Dad's most prominent friend was USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King. Aretha Franklin toured with Dr. King's social justice operations, and she sang at King's funeral.
Surya-7 often indicates that the primary relationship in life is with the Father. Confirmed by bhava-9 containing Guru, Shani, Mangala + yuvatipathi Guru occupies 9 = a dramatic case of karako bhavo nashto
Mom was a well-known musician and vocalist.
MARRIAGE emotional support partnership
Kuja rules the emotionally adversarial 6th-from-Chandra
Kuja rules the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically fruitful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra
Budha rules Karakamsha-1
Lagnesha Budha also rules Chandra-Mithunaya-10. Budha-yuti-Ketu in rogabhava-6 suggests mental and physical health issues of a constitutional nature. On the one hand, Ketu is distinctly oblivious to the accusations, jealousies, and phobias of Budha-yuti-Ketu-6. On the other hand, Budha controls the social identity, placing the person into conflicted, polluted, and unfair situations throughout life. Ms. Franklin enjoyed a legendary career in American music, for which she is admired around the world.
However, in addition to her spectacular success as a musical performer, Aretha Franklin also suffered from addictions to cigarette smoking and alcohol, obesity, from high blood pressure, from a phobia of airplane flying, and from notorious toxic feuding with other musical performers in her genre. When asked about her overwhelming obesity, about the four fathers of her four sons, about her own father's notoriously immoral behavior, or about any other topic which might elicit criticism, her universal response was denial (Ketu).
The year before her death from pancreatic cancer, she claimed to have had a lifesaving medical operation which would add 15-or-20 years to her life. Karmesha in 6 = 9th-from-10th = does not harm career. However it does indicate chronic mental and physical imbalances, and these were well documented in the life of the legendary Queen of Soul.
