Career and Public Roles for Punarvasu

  • The Guru-ruled Nakshatra trine expresses the qualities of Lord Brihaspati.
  • As a broad pattern, the Guru-ruled nakshatra Punarvasu and Visaka-Radha and Purvabhadrapada indicate those who are natural educators, with a distinctive propensity toward world travel, and a pronounced interest in theory-philosophy-doctrine.
  • As a rule, they flourish in environments which feature the spontaneous natural creativity and innocent faith of children.

Professor Guru rules the optimistic, expanding inclusive, preacher-teacher, generous, wise, abundance-offering "World Traveler" Nakshatra trine :

  1. Puna-r-vasu * Vasu * Yamaka

  2. Vizaka* Vishakha * Vishaja * Bishaka * Bishaja * Radha

  • starting fasts,
  • construction or repair of vehicles,
  • beginning agriculture,
  • having first lessons


  • Applies to nakshatra of radical lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential in determining compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Punarvasu * Aditya

Nakshatra of Brihaspati * Brihaspati's ever-expanding realm of inclusive doctrinal understanding can be shared easily with other optimistic, generous, growth-oriented Guru-folk.

Nakshatra of Mangala * Kuja and Guru are mutual friends Mangala the Champion leads the conquest of new worlds. He is a pioneer, an inventor, and a sexually driven competitor who rages in vital warfare, runs faster, drills deeper, and pursues His quarry without restraint. Mangala-ruled folk join can compatibly join charitable, indoctrinating Guru folk in support of Brihaspati's expansive ventures.

Nakshatra of Chandra * Guru and Chandra are mutual friends. * matrikaraka caretaking Chandra's rhythmic, parenting, routinized style provides a pleasing compliment to Guru's patronizing, paternalistic style. These pairs may be found in the cultural realms of ethnic religion.

Nakshatra of Surya * center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive Surya finds a willing companion in optimistic, generous, preaching, fertile Guru. Together they are often found in creative, political avenues of education and religion.

Psycho-socially neutral with Punarvasu * Aditya

Nakshatra of Shani * Shani and Guru are mutually neutral. Shani's governance structures can support Guru's preaching, and Brihaspati's philosophical ideologies can reside within Shani's hierarchies. This pair can be found in the world of institutionalized religion, universities, and charitable social organizations.

Psycho-socially uneasy with Punarvasu * Aditya

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting (Rahu) or deeply observing (Ketu) the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are cautiously useful to Guru's campaign to expand the paradigm of belief. Positive relationships can support exotic preaching, foreign missionary expansion, or outreach to culturally mixed environments. For other developments, discernment is required.

Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Punarvasu * Aditya

Nakshatra of Zukra = Zukra is all about two-party human-to-human arrangements that promote wealth acquisition, social harmony, and sensual pleasure within the union. Guru is all about one-to-many, divine-to-human broadcast events that disperse teachings into civilizations not generally into individuals. Guru is not averse to abundance, but the coffers of donated wealth are held by religious groups not by human partnerships. Guru has a strong animosity toward Zukra's materialism and sensuality. Therefore this pairing is generally unpleasant.

Nakshatra of Budha * Budha can tolerate Guru, But from Brihaspati's perspective, Professor Budha is a shatru-graha = arch-enemy. Doctrinal, philosophical, theoretical Guru becomes profoundly annoyed by detailed, technical, talking-head Budha. A Guru-ruled nakshatra may contemptuously dismiss the perceived triviality of a Budha-ruled nakshatra. Therefore this pairing is generally unpleasant.

Bambusa tree sacred to Punarvasu Nakshatra

BPL commentary: Punarvasu radical lagna * attributes and behaviors Punarvasu refers to the "restoring of goods " or the "commencement of wealth". In etheric cosmology, the subtle particulate nature of the Earth is considered to be fundamentally composed or fabricated from the rays emitted by seven graha. The system of rays is very complex with many overlays and interweavings.

One of the interlocking systems of rays which travels through the infrastructure established by the rays of these seven graha is the roadway or channel network by which 27 advanced civilizations travel into the Earth along one of the 27 constructed pathways (na-kshatra). Each of these 27 pathways facilitate the bringing of intelligence, awareness, technology, and other gifts into Earth.

In this cosmology, Punarvasu is a location, a world, from which originate the beneficent rays of multiplication by replication, abundance and wisdom. The travellers from Punarvasu are carried into Earth on their customary channel.

It seems as if they arrive instantly. They are technologically capable of leaving the galactic time-belt, travelling along the dematerialized no-time change-belt, then re-entering the time belt, which seems like a no-time-elapsed event. These missionaries and guides implant their wisdom into the multiple electro-magnetic grids which surround and interpenetrate the Earth.

Essentially, they are empowered to restore lost technology. The basis of technology is consciousness. However they require permission and their gifts must align with the recipients' paradigm of belief.

Those who are genetically designed to match the energy of Punarvasu for example, those born with some lagna or a graha located within Punarvasu can partake of Punarvasu gifts quite naturally, through the aligned conditions of their birth.

Traditionally there are eight Bright supervisors of the Punarvasu communication channel:

  1. Apa * water *** or Ahan * day
  2. Dhruva * the Pole-star
  3. Soma * Somana * Chandra* Earth's Moon
  4. Dhara * flowing water
  5. Anila * Colorless Wind
  6. Anala or Pavaka * Fire
  7. Pratyusha * the Dawn
  8. Prabhasa * Light

The light radiance of these beings is called fiery as it is extremely bright. Generally humans can perceive only a protected, heavily veiled and muted aura surrounding the Vasu. At the present time in history most humans would be blinded, both physically and perceptually, by the full intensity of this light. It would fry the human nerve system. There are always throughout history a few aligned Earth-humans whose consciousness is aligned to the restorers. They were typically writers who described the higher consciousness and the magical technology even though during the recent millennia of quarantine it was not yet permitted to materialize these bright ideas.

Ruled by Brihaspati, Puna-r-vasu born human-beings are humanistic philosophers.

Their particular genius is Brihaspati-oriented wisdom of fertility and abundance. Punarvasu humans can become masters of the art of replication. They understand at birth how to copy, how to duplicate, how to multiply, how to regenerate from a seed . They are the master gardeners. Thus typically the Punarvasu native becomes wealthy and wise via the arts of replication.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates is Punavasu aligned (radical lagna). Gates became wealthy through developing a system for replicating unlimited digital copies of textual information. Typical of the agreement-oriented Mithunaya-Punarvasu pada 1-2-3 he and his fellow gardeners promulgated this system through multiple inter-business contracts. After completing a career in commercial business, he turned his intelligence toward expansion of beneficial effects via charitable works particularly focused on expansion of health and education systems to benefit children (Guru). As a global philanthropist, he has undertaken the task of expanding and duplicating more advanced healthcare and education infrastructures into areas still underserved.

Technology is not just the material expression; in its core technology is consciousness. Development of technology arises from education and awareness.

Punarvasu natives are engaged in the development of civilization and they are all quite confident (Brihaspati) in their abilities. However these sagacious types are of two different species: pada 1-2-3 = the Mithunaya portion and pada-4 = the Karkata type.

Mithunaya pada 1-2-3 are conceptual thinkers and communicators who are more attuned to expository teaching and institutional management. They prosper in university administration and in intellectualized commercial environments. Due to Guru's mulatrikona = bhava-7 Dhanushya, pada 1-2-3 have a particular interest in mediation, contracts and mutually beneficial relationships. Mithunaya rashi confers the ability to coordinate with like-minded others via writings, conferences, committees, and peer-review.

Measured from Mithunaya lagna, Brihaspati ruling both bhava-10 and 10th-from-10th bhava-7 suffers kendra adhi-pathi dosha. Thus Punarvasu pada 1-2-3 can be associated with careerism. One may place the public career above all other values, so that the primary aim of life becomes public recognition via channels of peer advising and social governance. However the career always models a principled development of leading ideas that are grounded in a coherent theory of beneficial "goods". Punarvasu clearly understand the concept of a social good and are enabled to act on that perception. Also, no matter how demanding their administrative tasks may be, a Punarvasu native usually finds time to teach.

Punarvasu Pada-1 * 20:00 Mithuna 23:20 * Mesha-Arya navamsha

Theory-and-application agents focused on competitive, athletic, potentially aggressive movement. Develops Makara careers that climb the ladder of a governance hierarchy. Often found within institutional government and large corporations, depending on role of radical Shani.

  • Microsoft 1955- philanthropist Bill Gates uttama-Shani-5.

Punarvasu Pada-2 * 23:20 Mithuna 26:40 * Vrishabha Navamsha * Pushkara Navamsha

Theory-and-application agents focused on historical knowledge, material acquisitions, banking, conservation, containment of value, sensual luxury, and natural beauty. Develops Kumbha careers in large-scale economic and scientific systems, depending on role of radical Shani. Social-science and large-scale systems of all kinds.

Punarvasu Pada-3 * 26:40 Mithuna 30:00 * Mithunaya navamsha

Theory-and-application agents focused on explanatory and descriptive communications. Develops Meena careers in intuitive development, divination, esoteric philosophy, psychic and spiritual guidance, and various forms of teaching, depending on role of radical Guru. Meena often also involves music and imagery that relaxes and transports.

Punarvasu Pada-4 * 00:00 Karkata 03:20 * Karkata navamsha * Pushkara Navamsha

Punavasu-4 is a curious and unique individual pada which is often characterized by local-scale (Chandra) exploitation of marginalized subjects, conflict, accusation, or crime -- along with global-scale (Guru) humanistic viewpoints expanding the higher principles of theory, wisdom, and paradigms of belief.

Theory-and-application agents agents focused on establishing settlements, foundations of all kinds, fundamental schooling, caretaking, work with the plant kingdom, parochialism, patriotism, and protectiveness. Develops Mesha careers that are innovative, pioneering, and surging with physical life-force energy, depending on role of radical Mangala.

Pada-4 is less oriented to rank and recognition within the social hierarchy and also less of an explaining teacher. All Punarvasu energy provides guidance, however Pada-4 guides less by explaining and more by asserting "self-evident" truth.

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson helped to establish as the cornerstone principle of the USA a "self-evident truth", requiring no evidence or precedent, that "all men are created equal". (Yet being born in the Karkata pada, he kept many in slavery including his quadroon second wife. Pada-4 suffers a gap between theory and practice that can produce condescension and hypocrisy.)

Punarvasu pada-4 operate from a level of wisdom-mastery that has benevolent and also less benevolent consequences. Of course if bhava-10 is strong, the Punarvasu native may rise to an elite leader-adviser role as easily as pada 1-2-3. However pada-4 Punarvasu is naturally less attuned toward governance and more attuned to the promulgation of ideology, catechism of belief, credenda. Pada-4 evokes a challenging mixture. Its very high perspective of theory and principled thought (9) must partially operate in environments rife with exploitation, accusation, and conditions of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy (6). This juxtaposition leads to complex outcomes for pada-4.

Due to Guru's mulatrikona Dhanuzya = bhava-6, Punarvasu pada-4 can interpret Punarvasu's gift of replicating mastery in unfair and unsavory ways. Their philosophical principles are of the highest caliber. They are tremendous believers in human potential. They confidently and sincerely espouse enlightened beliefs. Yet, Punarvasu pada-4 must take care that their understanding of mastery does not slip into unbalanced master-slave arrangements based on their concept of natural superiority.

Punarvasu pada-4 can produce inspiring insights that provide transcendent guidance for the spirit. However their magnificent theory does not easily apply in practice. Day-to-day actions may seem hypocritical and inconsistent with exalted beliefs. Pada-4 may be perceived by those who demand moral accountability as a patronizing ideologue or even a criminal. Often pada-4 does truly "great" (Guru) things for the broader civilization while simultaneously marginalizing or mistreating those in their immediate care.

  • POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence 1743-1826 Thomas Jefferson * a brilliant theorist whose Enlightenment ideology contributed forcefully to the principled development of the United States of America. Yet his second wife was a slave and even at his death he did not free her.

All Punarvasu folk throughout pada 1-2-3-4 are blessed by a strong conviction that the broad truths are fully represented by their theoretical viewpoint. It is virtually impossible to sway them from their doctrinal position via logical argument from any basis.

Punarvasu, like Visaka and Purvabhadrapada, are"born knowing" their truth and they perceive the incarnation as an opportunity to serve others by preaching upon their principles. When frustrated by other's lack of wisdom (particularly as expressed by those playing Budha-style victim roles) the natives of Brihaspati-ruled Punarvasu, Vishaka and Purvabhadrapada can seem condescending at times.

Guru plays a salient role in the nativity, and Vimshottari periods of Guru bring forth their inner proclivity to fill the roles of teacher, preacher, and sage.

Comments upon Punarvasu Nakshatra by Pandit David Frawley

"The Earth in the beginning had no growths.

  • She desired,"May I produce herbs and trees ."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Aditi, to Punarvasu, produces progeny and cattle.

Punarvasu is a creative Nakshatra ruled by the Earth as the World Mother Aditi .

  • It gives the ability to create in form and structure .

Those born under it like to produce things in a maternal way."

  • AGAIN = "returning, toward"

late O.E. agan, from earlier ongean"toward, opposite, against, in exchange for"

  • from on"on" + -gegn"against, toward,"

  • compounded for a sense of"lined up facing, opposite,"and"in the opposite direction, returning ."

For -gegn, cf. O.N. gegn straight, direct, Dan. igen against, O.Fris. jen,O.H.G. gegin, Ger. gegen against, toward, Ger. entgegen against, in opposition to."

In O.E., eft was the main word for again, but this often was strengthened by ongean, which became the principal word by 13c. Norse influence is responsible for the hard -g-.

  • Differentiated from against 16c. in southern writers, again becoming an adverb only, and against taking over as preposition and conjunction, but again clung to all senses in northern and Scottish dialect (where against was not adopted).

Punarvasu Nakshatra = Navamsha tanubhava = D-1 lagna

earth, gardens, water-springs, green leaves, fields and forests. Often sensitive to the presence of spirits via exquisite sense of natural life-force energy. Communes with the biological rhythms of plants and senses the pulse of nature in all living things.

  • compare to Mriga-sirasa, which has the same high sensitivity but less toward plants and more towards animals, including the human animal.

Punarvasu swamsha takes a partner role which emphasizes nurturing, gardening, developing behavior within the union.

If the partnership suppresses or denies the native 's parental style of environmental restoration and growing (whether children, plants, or businesses), then the native must leave.

Punarvasu generally have several marriages or several important unions during the lifetime. Natural speculators,

Punarvasu almost universally love gambling. Most natives will not suffer from a gambling addiction or other untoward results; rather one enjoys placing bets and watching the outcome on any type of numbers game.

Punarvasu ruled by Aditi-Surya may become famous (Ravi, attention-center) during the lifetime. This rapid rise to visibility-fame is often a great surprise to the native who was busy with environmental development and not trying to get famous at all!

Punarvasu normally prefers a simple gardener-parent-schoolteacher life. One will act consciously to reduce unnecessary trappings, so that creative free space is open for the invisible vital forces to do their development work.

  • Punarvasu needs to stay open for speculative opportunities; while being involved in growth of projects they also keep openness to alternative methods and ideas (Mithuna portion especially).

  • Punarvasu Nakshatra has a tendency to eschew the accumulation of personal wealth; prefers to participate in the shared wealth of the group. May give little thought to retirement savings or other scarcity-minded plans since they perceive great abundance of living resource in nearly all environments.

  • Highly predictable, tightly regulated lifestyles including those burdened with wealth management are not interesting to Aditi-ruled Punarvasu who glories in the spectacular, abundant creativity of the natural universe.

What one is really trying to avoid is the need to maintain and protect already-materialized resources; there is no fun in that!

BPL Punarvasu Pada-2

Pushkara Navamsha

Sensually balancing Zukra rules the pada, whilst generous, guiding Guru rules the nakshatra and articulating, evangelical Budha rules the rashi. Zukra-Guru are an adversarial pair: Zukra wants to invest all values into human-to-human partnerships, while Guru wants to raise the viewpoint to global, philosophical level.

Yet the verbally facile, articulating Budha can help to resolve this ironic conflict of the two Great Benefics by giving words to the dilemma. Marital harmony or world peace? Professor Budha may not accomplish either but He can give good reasoning for both.

Zukra-ruled Punarvasu pada-2 = relationship oriented, but identified with multiple (Guru) couplings; fertile Guru lord of Punarvasu is less concerned with legality and more with philosophical understanding, so domestic couplings even those that produce children do not always seek a legal contract.

Matters of Zukra such as negotiation, meditation, agreement-seeking, accumulated material wealth (capital), sensual pleasure, marriage, beauty, architecture, decoration, and all species of arrangement are featured in pada-2 within the larger contexts of Punarvasu's proclivity for theory and philosophical thought along with Mithunaya's commercial behaviors.

* BPL commentary upon Karkata rashi * * Pushkara Navamsha * Punarvasu pada-4 The 4th pada of Punarvasu is a distinctive placement combining the exploitation and conflict of the shad-ashtaka 6th-from angle with the poetic verse and philosophical high-mindedness of generously inclusive, Guru-ruled Punarvasu.
When Punarvasu forms the 7th bhava cusp

~~ Bhrigu Sutram Ch. 2 4 Shloka 12
