Shukra-ruled nakshatra trine =
balancing, Alliance, bargaining, crafting agreements, negotiation, deal-making, contracts, unions, diplomacy, pleasures, wealth, luxury, sweet taste
|Chandra in Bharani|
Radix Moon in PurvaAshadha
= "Early Victory"- Dedication and Ambition
Purva-Ashadha resides entirely within the auspicious rashi of Dhanushya.
problems in Purvashadha arise from the adversarial relationship between
Purva-Ashadha "the invincible sea".
Delusion in the Deluge
Sweet success (Shukra) comes to this native easily and often on a very broad scale (Guru).
yet Shukra-Guru influence upon Purvaashadha Soma contains significant potential for self-deception and delusion.
Sensually luxurious Shukra = the great deceiver! Ultimately one may become absorbed into sensual overload. This can even happen in meditation and prayer of a particularly sensual type, esp adoration of the deity as love partner.
Purvashadha Soma is called to one's vocation Early in Life
Higher truth can get twisted when inclusive and compassionate Guru must express His will through the auspice of Brihaspati's enemy the self-pleasuring Shukra.
Shukra uses Guru's influence of belief in great truths and guidance by a holy priesthood, to convince Purva-Ashadha Chandra that one is the path and proof of unassailable righteousness.
Purvashadha Chandra enjoys a feeling of Accomplishment. There is pleasure (Shukra) in believing (Guru) that one's early victories in life, which have brought luxury (Shukra) and expansion (Guru), are "proof" of the righteousness of one's path.
Aside from the interpersonal annoyance caused by Purvashadha's typical arrogance, the biggest problem facing Purva-Ashadha Chandra who wishes to achieve consciousness while born under the Purva-ashadha Moon = self-isolation from negative facts or criticism.
When criticism, contradiction, principled disagreement, or other Antidotes to the emotional drug of divinely approved self-satisfaction come along, Purva-Ashadha Chandra may reject the humanity of others.
It is easy for Purva-ashadha to dance merrily down the path of dehumanizing self-righteousness, while believing that one has been granted some sort of divine privilege, based on "early victories".
Toward the end of WWII, Adolph Hitler became increasingly hostile to negative reports from the field. His response was not to make corrections, but rather to protect himself (Chandra) from the voices of criticism while surrounding himself only with persons who completely believed in him (Guru).
Hitler died in an iconic state of self-isolation (Ketu): in a reinforced concrete underground bunker, surrounded by a small team of worshippers.
Note: Hitler's Purvashadha-Chandra
Mrs. Barbara Pierce Bush partner of USA Pres-41, mother of USA Pres-43, has the Chandra-yuti-Guru parochialism very strong in shelter-and-protect bhava-4. Luckily her nativity is free from the evil of Hitler's dangerously dehumanizing Ketu. Nevertheless Mrs. Bush shows the excessively padded self-protective buffering which occurs when a person surrounds oneself only with those who believe in one's inherent priesthood and who will approach only in a state of worship.
During her long period in the public eye, as the wife and mother of two presidents, she got considerable negative press for her apparent disinterest in charity work. She simply declined to participate in thetraditionally socially important charitable social service undertaken by wives of elite public servants in the USA.
Though she was fiercely dedicated to the welfare of her own kith and kin (Chandra), and married to a very wealthy man who could certainly subsidize her charitable labors, the comfortably insulated world of Mrs. Barbara Bush apparently did not include any awareness of the needs of those outside her family.
Perhaps her most notoriously insulated comment was made when she was asked her view of the human cost of death, injury, and trauma of the new USA invasion of Iraq, which was being started by her son USA Pres-43 G.W. Bush at that moment:
"why should we hear about body bags, and deaths ... and how many ... it's not relevant ... why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?" (March 2003)
Mrs. Bush's parochialism and "emotional insulation" is increased by Chandra yuti expansive swakshetra Guru-4; also her Purvashadha-Soma receives graha-drishti from active Kuja, luxurious Shukra, and dignified Shani.
Purva-Ashadha Chandra, however wrong-headed one may be, will resist any change of course on their destined movement toward the Source. Faced with a challenge, this one cannot easily change strategy or tactic; but Purva-Ashadha Chandra will never give up the pursuit of the goal.
One achieves "early victory" through being in the right place at the right time to take skillful advantage of a grassroots social movement, a sudden marriage or business Opportunity, or a sea-change in public tastes. The early advantage is generally maintained throughout life.
When damaged by hostile effects, Purvashadha Moon creates religious fundamentalists, ideologues, and tyrants. Pursuit of personal aggrandizement often manifests as a lack of compassion for others.
When supported by friendly effects, Purvashadha Moon gives the power to sustain religious vows, and stay loyal to fundamental principlein any undertaking.
The key to success with Purvashadha Chandra is, indeed, to choose one's commitments carefully. Because after making the first, early commitment, one will be emotionally unable to change course for the rest of one's life.
Should one's initial viewpoint turn out to have been wrong, Purvashadha moon will die trying. I.e., hoist by one's own petard, caught in his own web, and goes down with the ship.
Yet: when steady, loyal commitment to an early-life vow,
Or a simplistic, one-size-fits-all ideological solution to a complex human problem,
Are the keys to success, this native will achieve the pinnacle.
Positive traits include personal determination, work ethic, fierce loyalty to a person or a cause, and unshakable commitment to reach the goal regardless of its validity.
May be tremendous supporters of religious institutions, ideologies, and fundamental moral principles, especially in a dogmatic form.
Negative traits are more famous for Purvashadha.
Prenatal maternal narrative of Shukra and Born into Shukra Mahadasha
Strong planetary animosities:
From Dhanushya-Chandra lagna, Shukra rules the ripu
bhava (6) and the labha bhava (11). The parents are often significantly
concerned with earning an income and they may be in marital conflict
emotionally at the time of the prenatal epoch and Purva-Ashadha Chandra 's birth.
Purvashadha 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 logical argumentation (6) possibly exploitation and accusations (6) and the practice medicine (6). Purva-Ashadha Chandra is often drawn into exploitive (6) situations which are nonetheless quite profitable (11).
The mother would have been especially concerned with matters of complaints and litigation (6) medicine and drugs (6) disappointed promises in relationships (6) as well as obtainment of earnings and income in the marketplace (11). Meeting material goals, esp financial ones (Shukra) would have been important to her. Due to Shukra's influence she would have been thinking about her own attractiveness, worthiness, and beauty. All of these concerns remain part of Purva-Ashadha Chandra 's psychic narrative throughout life.
|Ketu yuti Chandra||
If Ketu is yuti
Chandra in a nakshatra of Shukra, Purva-Ashadha Chandra may slowly lose the hair,
teeth, or voice. There may be separation or abandonment in
relationship during Ketu periods.
If Chandra is yuti Shukra Purva-Ashadha Chandra 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.

|Wealthy Collections and Design Arts||
As with all the Shukra-ruled nakshatra (Bharani , Purvaphalguni, Purvashadha) this one is a collector and hoarder; therefore material wealth (Shukra) is usually abundant (rashi of Guru).
Religious art (Dhanushya-Shukra) is a particularly engaging study for this native, and if other graha support significant wealth Purva-Ashadha Chandra may attract (Chandra-Shukra) to oneself a substantial collection of beautiful and valuable religiously themed works of art.
Even the demonic Adolph Hitler was notably interested in religious art and symbolism; he arranged major collecting campaigns to acquire precious religious objects from the most ancient symbolic traditions.
Dehumanization is the poisonous antidote to compassion.
Purvashadha's victorious end is some sort of dominant power, and Purvashadha's ideologically-driven instinct can result in dehumanizationof the human "obstacles" blocking the path to a triumph of orthodoxy.
the mother feelsa need for relationships which deliver religious-ideological validation
She may place orthodoxy above nurturing.
Spiritual director of this section of the path:
NavamshaMoonin PurvaAshadha(intimate relationships).
In order to mirrorone's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Purvaashadha behavior.
Under emotional stress in relationships, Purva-Ashadha Chandra with navamsha Chandra in Purvaashadha can experience anxiety reactions that manifest as compulsive merging and clinging And obsessive repetition of claims based on vows or statements of commitment from the past.
Navamsha Chandra in Purvaashadha indicates a deep resistance to "mid-course corrections" in Purva-Ashadha Chandra 's own psyche, which if personally unacknowledged must be expressed through the partner's actions.
The partner needs clear sense of direction in the relationship, and a simple set of working principles or vows to ground the commitment.The partner cannot handle too much complexity and the partner may be unable to adapt or change his/her life strategy if and when life circumstances require adaptive change.
Partner is hard-working, mono-focused, typically quite beautiful (Guru-Shukra) typically with lovely eyes.
Depending on the Nakshatra of Purva-Ashadha Chandra 's radix Moon, the partner's emotional resistance to change may be a source of conflict and eventually separation in a relationship.
Due to its sense of merging and flowing toward a fixed destination, Purvaashadha Nakshatra is a good place for sustaining vows and partner commitments, but excessively rigid or legalistic interpretation of the early promises can cause resentment along the path of spiritual growth. It is good to introduce more compassion into the ongoing interpretation of early promises, if humanly possible.
