Chitra-Tvastri * Citthirai * Vismakarma * Azinech * Alaraph * Arista * Dana
For Chitra-Tvastri births of a feminine 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 Visvakarma, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.
Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.
Designs + Arrangements
Kuja-ruled Vismakarma ladies are blessed with direct, muscular physical and sexual energy. They are often found in environments where beautiful designs plus physical agility are valued. Chitrani typically excel in competitive, vitality-focused fields such as fashion modeling, cinematic acting, musical performance, choreography and dance, and athletics which emphasize balanced movement.
Kanya pada 1-2 expresses Kuja's rulership of 3-writing-commerce + 8-secret transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Budha's Writing skills may emerge in pada 1-2. Kanya-Chaitra are often found in media communications and commercial aspects of design work, where their pro-active process management is distinctive. Trust and relationship integrity may be challenging.
Thula Pada 3-4 emphasizes Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, treasuries + 7-contracts, alliances. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills rise in pada 3-4 due to the pleasant attractions of Zukra-Mangala. Ladies often enjoy considerable wealth via face, voice, marriage, and family lineage. In music, arts, and partnership-craft, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. In the arts, entertainment, beauty, and design industries, their contractual deals are often luxuriously beneficial.
Themes of competitive movement, agile beauty, dynamic design, and financial equity may contextualize Chaitra's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96.
"An expensive and luxurious person.
She likes to change costumes several times a day
Variety is the spice of life to this woman
Many actresses, musicians, artists and opera singers have Chitra rising. ..."

Distinctive features of the Nativity
Judy Garland a.k.a. Frances Ethel Gumm with her problematic mother-manager, Ethel Milne Gumm. Matrikaraka Chandra-5 rules withdrawn, imprisoning bhava-12
Surya-10 receives amplifying drishti of Mangala + Guru-yuti-Rahu
Surya karaka for theatre, celebrity
Surya in bhava-9 Dad = a vaudeville entertainer who owned a local theatre = performance arts, entertainments, choreography = 9 = 5th-from-5th The entertainments included live-performance mixed with early cinema.
Chandra-Surya Tension between the parents
Surya-9 occupies 6th-from-Chandra-4-Mula, indicating a hostile, incompatible electro-magnetic emotional alliance between mother (Mula-Chandra-4) and father (Mriga-Surya-9). Garland's father was a gay man and the parents often disagreed. Surya occupies the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra while Zukra-10 social reputation rules 6th-from-Chandra
Mom was said to have been an intensely controlling stage-mother
Mom was involved in every detail of her underage daughter's relationship to the hiring studios. Chandra in Mula rules bhava-11 revenues +++ Chandra rules the emotionally self-transforming, often shocking, change-inducing, revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra = secrets, non-disclosure, sudden unexpected changes, new identities, transformative healing, camouflage, emergencies
According to Ms. Garland, the secret drugs which eventually destroyed Judy's health were originally supplied by her mother = Chandra takes a strong 7th drishti of Zukra ruler of 6th-from-Chandra.
Eventually, Judy gained legal adulthood and Chandra in Mula fulfilled its destiny of emotional annihilation..
Ms. Garland had a volatile relationship with her mother. It is said by observers that Judy Garland idolized and identified with her entertainer father (Surya-9) but held her mother responsible for her father's distress and premature death (Chandra-4 matrikaraka in the father-destroying 8th-from-Surya).
When Judy turned 21, her desire to throw off the yoke of maternal control became materially viable. Following a major fight about her mother's mismanagement of her contract (Ketu-7 in 4th-from-Chandra = contract), her relationship with the mother was completely severed during Zukra-Ketu chidra-dasha
Mom received no further financial support from her famously over-controlled daughter, who asserted that mom had been pilfering her earnings (Chandra rules 11) since childhood. No reconciliation occurred during the "no-contact" years 1943-1953. The alienated mother died in 1953 (mom's age 59).
Post-split from her Mother, Garland bore two additional children bring her family to a total of three kids. Yet no communication was allowed between Garland's mom-manager and the grandchildren. Additional pressure heaped upon Judy due to inability to call upon the living grandmother as a trustworthy caretaker for the grandchildren.
It is speculated that the momager may have displayed the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder
BPD produces a mother-figure who for psychological reasons may systematically and gradually causes significant harm to her own children, including the potential to drug them or steal their money. One method for helping families to deal with these personalities is the classic "no contact" policy. This zero-contact stratagem may have been intuitively or professionally recommended; the outcome was absolute severance Chandra in Mula emotional annihilation.
During the downward spiral that began during the nervous breakdown following the birth of her first child , without ability to be supported in early motherhood by her own mother, Ms. Garland was several times accused of irresponsible parenting due to negligence and drug use. Several times she nearly lost legal possession of her children, and effectively she was often separated from the kids by work duties and periods of personal disconnectedness.
Garland endured financial fluctuations on a dramatic scale. She occasionally earned millions in performance contracts, but paid fines for late taxes and penalties for cancelled show-dates. She died (age 47) at the beginning of an unwanted come-back singing tour that she was undertaking solely because she needed income.
MARRIAGE emotional support partnership
With a deceased father and a rejected mother, Ms. Garland -- whose childhood had been overwhelmed with adult work in cinematic drama --- married five times in pursuit of a secure family life.
Mithunaya contains Zukra-Budha = first husband was a songwriter-musician, and a friend. Although Zukra rules the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra Zukra is also located in the harmony-seeking 7th-from-Chandra. Their separation was amicable.
Kuja rules the fashionable, physically active Chitra-Tvastri radical lagna
Kuja = nearly always a challenging graha for the Kanya nativity
Kuja rules 8 ++ Kuja rules 8th-from-8 = 3
Mangala in bhava-3 tends to fight with the ensemble cohort, including her sisters
Yet receives incoming drishti from disciplining, constraining Shani-1
Shani drishti provides a disciplining influence which allowed Garland's career to proceed with regular structure.
Budha rules career 10th-navamsha = Mithunaya containing vargottamsha Zukra
Budha rules the 10th-from-Chandra = Kanya-1
Budha rules Kanya swamsha
Budha-10 rules 1 + 10
As her children (Guru) showed talent, she made them into performers, just as she had done for her family from a very young age.
Blessings from the Marginalized
Guru-Kanya in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra suggests Garland's lifelong ability to symbolize and appeal to socially marginalized, stigmatized fans in the male gay community. They formed her most loyal fan base. Their purchases of her recordings and tickets to her performances during her failing health years is often accounted as the main reason she was able to keep afloat.
Celebrated theatrical singer, Hollywood child-actor dramatist Her most celebrated cinematic performance occurred when she was a child-actress (Budha) Wizard of Oz Ms. Garland was reputed (10) for her musical performances
Zukra-Mithunaya occupies 10th-Navamsha = communications media, photographs, cinema
Zukra rules 2+9 = her singing sisters
Zukra-Mithunaya rainbow colors. The single most well-remembered song of career of Wizard of Oz 1922-1969 entertainer Judy Garland = "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
Marketplace Earnings Financial Patterns * Zukra rules 6th-and-11th from Chandra
Zukra-10 ruling the economic earning s= emotionally associative, community-linking, economically fruitful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra
Creates a volatile economic cycle featuring the extremes of both dynamic earnings via debt, disagreements, and addictive behaviors (6) divorces, and despair along with bhukti periods of exceptionally high earnings from artistic performance (Zukra) and favorable contracts (Zukra). Ms. Garland famously experienced both luxurious wealth from dramatic performance profits, as well as tragic losses of anticipated income and losses due to health issues (6).
beauty, song, face * Zukra drishti to Chandra in Mula-= that charming round child's face, still perfectly recognizable many decades later.
Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka
Shani rules 5 = creative or literary arts, fashion, celebrity, drama, gaming, politics.
Shani rules 6 = addiction, divorce, conflict, ailment, broken promises, betrayal, dissatisfaction
Shani + Guru + Rahu = occupies career the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra Onerous burdens of very high public visibility become amplified by Rahu and expanded by Guru. Work schedule begins in early childhood. Public behavioral strictures must be socially approved (Shani).
Shani rogesha amplified by Rahu
She was often accused of stretching the truth or outright fabricating stories. A brilliant singer.
Shani in Bhava-1 - Kanya = identified with a heavy workload and social criticism (Kanya)
Shani-yuti-Guru dhava-karaka + Guru-yuti-Rahu suggests that she had a multitude of husband-figures Her father and also her five husbands were generally homo-social men whose sexual-sensual-partnerships were diverse and complex with socially irregular (Rahu) behaviors yet socially regular (Shani) external professional status.
Rahu amplifies the yuvatipathi Guru * Rahu amplifying rogesha-Shani contributes to five marriages before age 46
Rahu-amplified Shani-Kanya-1 sends Shani's 10th drishti into bhava-10 visibility, high position containing Zukra-+Budha business financial contracts. . Shani's professional 10th drishti creates restrictions upon the public behavior (10th)
Despite her mature career in cabaret singing and thousands of adults-only nightclub performances, Judy Garland was forever characterized by her familiar 10th-from-Chandra image . The popular audience saw her forever as homespun character Dorothy Gale, the Midwest farm girl.
Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)
Rahu + Shani + Guru in bhava-1 personality, physical body = occupies the emotionally motivated career-directing 10th-from-Chandra. Tremendously well-known American audience-recognizable appearance for many decades.
Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka
Ketu in classroom-7 receiving drishti of ruler-Guru + Shani + Rahu == produces a remarkable cycle of "try again" marriages
Ketu located in the defensive, culturally-rooted, routine-loving, patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra exacerbates a feeling of rootlessness and unbelonging and adds to a disconnection from the childhood, from the mother, and from the cultural foundations
4th-from-4th = severed connection to Mother
By Ms. Garland's telling, young Judy was tightly controlled by her stage-manager mother. In Zukra-Ketu bhukti, after a big fight when Judy turned 21, mom was cut-off forevermore via an irrevocable no-contact (Ketu) decision. Despite having three of her own children, young Ms. Garland never spoke to her mother again, and the children grew up sans relationship to their maternal grandmother.
