Purvaphalguni

  • ruled by luxurious, sensual Shukra

  • 13Simha40 - 26Simha39

Moon in Purvaphalguni = "Best Pink Portion"

(Shukra-Surya-Yoni)

  • Wants (Chandra) to enjoy the best in life.


After a powerful early start marked by "burst upon the scene" attractiveness and glamour, tends toward reduced momentum in the mid-career.

Excellent support for the relationship-building element of political careers as well as the musical and artistic elements of entertainment or fashion careers.

May give a huge early burst of success due to creative genius or political charisma. Yet without strong support from other graha, later creative efforts may fall below expectations or "flame out". On the foundation of earlier successes, typically a pattern of "coasting" on previous accomplishments, into a less remarkable middle and later phase.

However all nakshatra of Shukra can grant good relationships skills, and the native is usually well-liked throughout life.

Having been invested with trust and appreciation (Shukra) during the earlier half, continues to produce some political and entertainment charisma (Surya) despite the lower energy of the later half.

The Purvaphalguni Chandra personality is usually able to sustain their natural charm and continue to practice creatively or politically at a reduced momentum during the second half of the career, albeit at a lower flame.

Exceptions:

  • sustained artistic creativity "Material Girl" pop entertainer Madonna enjoys a Purvaphalguni Chandra parivartamsha exchange with atmakaraka Surya (while Surya occupies both D-9 lagna and D-10 lagna). This remarkable combination allows constant regeneration of the theatrical performance (Surya) from the emotional response to life (Chandra).

  • sustained upward political trajectory USA Pres-36 Lyndon Baines Johnson due to the remarkable plethora of graha accompanying Chandra, including the lords of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11 = Surya + Guru + Budha + Mangala.


Emotional need for relationships in which one holds political or creative authority. "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others."

Naturally assumes a pleasantly glamorous center-stage ritual role in whatever area of expertise has been developed by Surya. Calmed and validated by theatrical "Pomp and Circumstance".

Needs ceremonial recognition of their bright glittering genius. Most comfortable and feeling settled when blessed with a gracious and luxurious lifestyle.

Purvaphalguni-Chandra suffers from a certain degree of inner conflict about the nature of love and relationships.

One is trying to work out an unstable treaty between the two adversaries = self-centered Surya + relationship-oriented Shukra.

Emotional need for loving partnerships (Shukra) but also an equal need to be a celebrity figure who is often in the dramatic center of attention.

  • Surya creates brilliance, enthusiasm, self-reflexivity, political instincts, and drama

  • Shukra pursues the path of sensual pleasure, diplomacy, peer relationships, negotiations, and acquisition of financial wealth

Emotional Negotiator: Self (Surya) vs Other (Shukra)

A difficult but interesting placement. Shukra tries to balance two persons but Surya tries to put all the attention upon one person.

Similar in emotionally driven wealth-acquiring and harmony-seeking behaviors to the other two Shukra-ruled nakshatra Bharani and Purvazadha .

  • Bharani negotiates Mangala-Shukra, which is not overly difficult due to the neutral relationship between Kuja and Shukra.

  • Purvazadha negotiates Guru-Shukra, which can indeed be problematic due to the adversarial pairing of two competing benefics.

  • Uniquely, the Purvaphalguni native seeks an awkward path toward emotional wholeness and belonging (Chandra): validation (Shukra) via praise for exceptional individual brilliance (Surya).

Drama of inter-human relationships,

glittering emotional center of interest

Here in the center-stage hot zone of Simha where the limelight is always turned on, Surya the rashi-pati and Shukra the nakshatra-pati have to "duke it out".

The result is usually abundant "relationship drama" (Shukra-Surya).

  • Purva-phalguni Chandra is rarely satisfied with a single partnership since no one single person can provide the amount of praise and attention that this native emotionally requires.

The result may manifest as a series of romantic partnerships which fascinate the public and provide plenty of material for literary dramatization.

Literary Genius

The zodiacal span from Purva-phalguni Chandra through Uttara-phalguni Chandra denotes many famous writers.

Purvaphalguni Chandra particularly denotes writers who are able to dramatize "lights and delights".

If the significations of celebrated writing are well disposed = Budha, bhava-3, and bhava-5 = then Purvaphalguni Chandra may possess a natural ability to apprehend and communicate the sensual-material (Shukra) empowerments (Surya). These empowerments are rendered via royal birth, magical intelligence (tantra) personal charisma, or a light-centric view of the universe.

  • "Harry Potter" magical-fiction writer + J.K. Rowling + Budha + Shukra

  • "Tantra in Tibet" tantric philosophy and instructions = "Policy of Kindness" 14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso

  • "War and Peace" Christian Anarchist Leo Tolstoy

Dramatic Theater, and Celebrity Politics

Intelligent drama of Surya combines with Shukra's beauty and grace. Purvaphalguni Chandra is a natural fit for careers in theatre and politics.

Public speaking and mingling with the rich-and-famous are two favorite activities of these charismatic personalities.

Purvaphalguni does need the attention emotionally - there is a deep hunger for applause. However the native is typically gifted with the natural ability to attract what one needs from the public; and public life with its one-to-many relationships is often quite satisfying.

  • A lack of satisfaction is more often felt in private life with one-to-one relationships, where Shukra's cool equality between partners does not provide the emotional "rush" of momentary deification sought by the Surya-ruled nakshatra placements.

Purvaphalguni's ideal relationship arrangement = self-centered + peer-interactive

Surya and Shukra = mortal enemies. These two adversaries constantly compete for control of one 's core sense of well-being.

Shukra claims the path of Love-as-Pleasure-with-Other, while Surya demands Love-as-Sole-Channel-of-Divine-Power.

Thus the ideal arrangement delivers both:

  • = "one to one" intimate partnerships (often several of these)

  • plus a steady dose of the essential "one-to-many" relationships that a stage performer develops with the audience, fans, readership, followers, supporters, electorate, etc.

Although other graha must be considered in making recommendations, often the best lifestyle involves a core intimate union such as a marriage, combined with occasional or frequent appearances in the spotlight.

  • although UK-Princess Anne Laurence is in many ways a private, even reclusive personality, she supports hundreds of charities. In service as an iconic figure, she attends hundreds of fundraising events and ceremonies. The result is many, many hours each year located at the center of public attention, often on camera, and as the singular focus of the audience attention, receiving congratulatory applause.

  • Similar observations could be made of the self-declared shy person "Harry Potter" writer J.K. Rowling, author of the hugely popular Harry Potter book series, who also follows an annual schedule of dozens of public appearances at which she is the fascinating center of attention attended by praise and applause.

Ways to get validation via center of attention

The Purvaphalguni native who may lack a career in performance arts, fashion, or politics will find some other way to receive their center-stage emotional nourishment.

They often drive flashy cars - usually larger or more specialized or more expensive than required by their lifestyle. Women are prone to plunging necklines and males to super-sporty clothes.

Purvaphalguni women tend to prefer male-dominated environments where the female presence will stimulate male competition and she will receive more attention.

For example, a female professional may enjoy working in the male-dominated engineering field, or of course in politics. Males enjoy motorcycles, actresses, extreme sports, and parties.

Sensuality

Active beings, both socially and physically. the native is sensual, sociable, and committed to both the path of power and the path of enjoymentin human life

  • Desire for attention often generates Multiple romantic relationships

Extraordinary personal entitlement

Bhagadaivata

Like all three of the Shukra-ruled nakshatra, Purvaphalguni gives Bhagadaivata or "luck of the demons".

  • A love of powerful company and celebrity glamour is their hallmark.

  • Can be slightly handicapped by a laziness, often traced to the comforts of the family estate.

  • Connoisseurs of every pleasure, with persistently high entitlement to partake of life's "best offerings". Huge love of human beings, their animalistic contradictions and their true divinity.

Purvaphalguni Chandra, while a party-lover and sensually inclined always, will not descend into mindless indulgence. Surya = karaka for Intelligence. Native is typically more than capable mentally but the intelligence is focused upon obtainment of nurturing in relationships and social validation via personal power and glory.


  • Deep emotional need feel special, privileged and refined.

Prenatal maternal narrative of Shukra and Born into Shukra Mahadasha

Strong planetary animosities:

  • Shukra and Surya are fierce mutual enemies.

  • Shukra treats Chandra as an enemy.

  • Chandra has no enemies.

From Simha-Chandra lagna, Shukra rules the sahaja bhava (3) and the karma bhava (10). The parents are often significantly involved in business activities at the time of the prenatal epoch and the native 's birth.

Purvaphalguni natives are born into a narrative of pleasure-and-treasure-accumulation (Shukra) - wealth and knowledge - and they keep that script close to their emotional hearts throughout life. The script is diversified by the application of Shukra's sensual talents to the tasks of commercial business (3) and public leadership (10). the native is often called into public life most frequently in the business of politics and entertainment.

The mother would have been especially concerned with matters of siblings and playmates (3) capitalization of financial wealth into self-owned business (3) group dynamics such as communication with her neighbors and immediate friends (3) and professional service (10) or public reputation and respect through leadership in her local context (10) . Public recognition would have been important to her. Due to Shukra's influence she would have been thinking about her own attractiveness, dramatic liveliness, and beauty. All of these concerns remain part of the native 's psychic narrative throughout life.

If Ketu is yuti Chandra in a nakshatra of Shukra

If Ketu is yuti Chandra in a nakshatra of Shukra, the native may slowly lose the hair, teeth, sight, or voice. There may be separation or abandonment in relationship during Ketu periods.

If Chandra is yuti Shukra the native the mother indulges the Purvaphalguni child in sweets and treats; which spoils the child for life. Being spoiled does not harm the career and may in fact enhance it, as one will work hard for the luxuries. However the entitlement to sweet treats becomes unshakable when Chandra + Shukra, esp in a nakshatra of Shukra.

Mother

  • Mother feelsa need for relationships which deliver theatrical-political validation and she basks in the attention of her audience, including the children, the spouse and his cronies.

  • the native will be comfortable in relationships with stage performers, politicians, and self-dramatizing personalities.

  • Parenting style meets the native 's need for center-stage recognition before attending to the concerns of children.
