BPL Commentary

The environment of * higher fortune * uttara-bhadra * is located in the lower recesses of Earth, wherein the crystalline grid is located.

Ahira-Budhnaya is also called Ohi-bridna or Uro-boros and many other variations and other distinctive names. He is the one who is aware (budha) of the treasures stored in the inner recesses below the surface of Earth. Often depicted as a serpent steadily defending a hoard of precious treasure at the bottom of the ocean, Ahira (diamond) is certainly a collector and preserver of treasuries. However the location of His activities is rarely recognized.

Beneath the surface of Telluris (Ear * Ur * Earth) lies a global network of crystallized rock that is capable of electro-magnetic transmission. It is somewhat similar to, but dramatically more sophisticated than, a network of radio transmission repeater stations. When it was connected eons ago, it became the signal send-receive mechanism for the guides and supporters of Earth to communicate with their scouts and engineers who had been deployed to prepare the Earth to support human civilizations.

This network of channels and tunnels contains vortices of spiral-up energy and spiral-down energy that function similarly to faucets and drains. Spiral-up uses a frequency of anti-gravity pulling away from Earth (drain, going out) and spiral-down uses a frequency of gravity pulling toward Earth (faucet, pouring in). Is not dissimilar to the modern digital internet conceptualization of tunneling to create unseen channels for signal exchange such as Virtual Private Networks. The signal frequencies have mathematical signatures which are not dissimilar to modern digital encrypting methods. It is a busy system.

Within the network of tunnels and caves lie various stashes and caches of precious cargo, mainly in the form of crystalline stones and highly conductive metals. Humans would recognize much of this engineering material as jewels, silver and gold. Because this precious inventory of signal-transmission components is essential to the welfare of the intergalactic network into which Earth is and has been connected since its inception, these cave-like warehouses of precious crystals and metals are guarded by Naga figures who have been protecting Earth since the beginning. Ancient lore refers to Dragon Lairs in the deep, protected by terrifying serpents. This is the environment of Uttara-bhadra-pada.

Humans would recognize these cache-management figures as hailing from reptilian species. Their body-covering consists of scales rather than skin or fur, and they may take the form of a dragon or a serpent. Thus Ahira-Budhnya * He who is aware of the jewel-stash * supervises these massive and precious assets of inter-galactic civilization which allows Telluris * Earth to remain connected to the sustaining wealth of the galaxy and beyond. Were these treasures pillaged, loss of the supply of conductors would cripple Earth's etheric support system, and terrestrial life would quickly expire.

Proportional to their level of consciousness, those born into the nakshatra of Uttara-bhadra are participating in the massive scope of wealth reserves which exists within Earth. Uttara-bhadrapada's inborn assets consist of both monetary wealth and treasure-chests of knowledge. Those born into the precious portion of Uttara-bhadra-pada are often distinguished by extraordinary wealth of knowledge or their astounding material assets along with their Guru-characteristic charity in sharing this largesse.

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

Psycho-socially compatible with Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

Nakshatra of Shani * materialistic, structuring, status-oriented, rule of law. Shani people are systems people. These pairs are often found in structuring, law-imposing, bureaucratic governance roles.

Nakshatra of Zukra = materialistic, accumulating, sensual Zukra makes an elegant, status-acquisitive, architectural pair with hierarchical, structural Shani.

Nakshatra of

Budha * mercantile, conversational, collaborative, shopkeeper Budha is friendly with economic-systems regulator Shani. Budha may indicate the junior partner, the salesperson, the explainer while the Shani partner is more concerned with longevity and continuity of the operation.

Psycho-socially neutral with Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

Nakshatra of Brihaspati * Guru and Shani are mutually neutral. Brihaspati welcomes every experience into the full totality of awareness, and Shani provides the structure which grants a lawful coherence to the unfolding of that tapestry of experience.

Psycho-socially uneasy with Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

Nakshatra of Chandra * caretaking Chandra's parenting, nourishing style that recognizes only the family unit conflicts with Shani's style of organizing that recognizes only the community-society unit

Nakshatra of Mangala * Shani is intimidated by Kuja's direct aggressions, competitiveness, and warlike powers. Kuja's pioneering, innovative style conflicts with Shani's insistence on unchanging, lawful structures.

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting (Rahu) or deeply observing (Ketu) the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles conflict with Shani's requirement for a fixed social order constructed from unchanging socially regulated relationships.

Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

Nakshatra of Surya * center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive Surya-style violently conflicts with Shani's uniform, zero-exceptions, dark, cold, rigidly orderly style. Surya and Shani see each other as ati-shatru = maximum enemy.

Shakti of the Uttarabhadra Nakshatra

commentary by Pdt. David Frawley,

"Ahir Budhnya desired, "May I find a foundation ."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Ahir Budhnya, to Uttara Bhadra,

  • gains a foundation.

Uttara Bhadra grants a firm foundation in life,

  • connecting us with the wellsprings of vitality,

  • the serpent who dwells in the middle of the sea."

QUOTATION from Dennis Harness

"26. Uttara Bhadrapada: The Warrior Star

(Pisces 03 20 to 16 40)

The symbols for Uttara Bhadrapada are the last two legs of a funeral cot, or twins.

Bhradrapada translates as

  • the scorching or burning pair related to the twin nakshatras of Purva and Uttara Bhadrapada.

A woman born with Uttara Bhadrapada as her birth star is considered blessed by the goddess Lakshmi, and is considered the gem of her family .

The animal symbol is the sacred female cow of India.

The deity is Ahir Budhnya, the Serpent of the Deep Sea, and part of Lord Shiva's army which reflects the warrior nature of this lunar mansion.

Uttara Bhadrapada has a human, or manushya temperament with a primary motivation of kama, or healthy pleasures.

The ruling planet, Saturn, provides great depth and spiritual discipline.

The shakti is the bringing of the cosmic rain ."

Valerie Roebuck, The Circle of Stars , p. 101

BPL comment:

Uttara-bhadra-pada-1 radical lagna puts

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-1 nativity shows many of the typical Simha traits of glittering intelligence, enjoyment of center-stage roles, interest in politics and drama, and natural self-centered authority.

Vrishabha on the 10th-navamsha suggests that the Uttara-bhadra-pada-1 nativity is typically professionally engaged with matters of Vrishabha such as visual arts, illustration, women's ornamentation and fashion, eyes-hair-face, mouth-teeth, beautification, flowers, perfumes and aromatic oils, sensual pleasures, song and music, facial beauty, eyesight, banking and financial treasures, sweets and liquors, dairy foods and cattle.

Any graha located in Vrishabha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be subject to revaluation and reassessment because Professor Bright Bhrigu indicates historical, financial, and aesthetic value.

If, within the Simha swamsha, the nakshatra of the navamsha-lagna lies between 13:21 and 26:39 (Purvaphalguni) then the Zukra-ruled artistic, musical, beauty. and finance indicators are further strengthened.

BPL: pada-1

Surya rules the pada, whilst Shani rules the nakshatra and Guru rules the rashi. Surya-Shani form a contradictory pair.

There may be constant tension between the instinct to claim royal entitlements (Surya) versus the mandate to serve the social order (Shani). Particularly there is tension and resistance between the self-focused Surya patterns and the social-approval-requiring Shani patterns in reference to the style of promulgating Guru's agenda which is the spread of inclusiveness, generosity, and wisdom.

Hypocrisy is a constant threat. Depending upon the placements of Surya-Shani one may experience ongoing animosity due to the inconsistencies, hypocrisies, and misalignments between personal glory (Surya) versus social duty (Shani).

Feminine Nativities

Typically, Uttarabhadrapada ladies are loving and compassionate with a natural concern for others. Due to Surya-Shani conflict, they must leave the place of birth in order to achieve their professional success.

Marriage is not easy due to the egocentricity of Surya, and the mate may find evidence of uttarabhadra-1 hypocrisy between the political or charismatic entitlements (Surya) versus social principles and duties (Shani).

Generally, children are raised to be well-mannered, self-disciplined, and respectful of others.

BPL comment:

Uttara-bhadra-pada-2 radical lagna puts

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-2 nativity shows many of the typical Kanya traits of service-ministry and orientation to health care, unbalanced arrangements, and mitigation of pollution (cleaning).

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-2 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of communicative Mithunaya such as writing and editing, publications, conversation, announcements, declarations, documentation, media-messaging, evangelism, cinema, radio-television-internet, books-magazines-journals-blogs, travel itineraries, scheduling, planning, meetings, business administration, project management, conferences, seminars, presentations, instructional delivery, description, explanation, diagrams, photography, drawings, hand-craft, tool-use, apprenticeship.

Any graha located in Mithunaya 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The definition of the public career may be subject to re-describing and re-explaining because Professor Budha indicates chattering.

In Uttara-bhadra-pada-2 there is always an element of psychological tension between the adversarial attitude of lagnesha Charitable Guru toward Blustering Budha who rules the both the 10th-navamsha and swamsha. Professor Budha wants to argue the details while Professor Guru the Great Teacher wants to philosophize upon grand celestial concepts. This tension often exacerbates the digestive ailments associated with Kanya.

BPL: Pushkara Navamsha = Kanya navamsha pada-2 Uttarabhadrapada:

Budha rules the pada, whilst Shani rules the nakshatra and Guru rules the rashi. Budha-Shani form an orthodox, instructional pair. Budha favors bachelorhood or a lifelong inclination to student-ness.

All matters of Budha such as writing, evangelism, younger siblings, narrative, hand-craft, and signaling behaviors can be expected to flourish moderately.

Although mental success is assured, material success is limited slightly by the adversarial relationship between Budha and Guru. Nevertheless, the chain of command in Kanya navamsha pada-2 Uttarabhadrapada being mediated via Shani, the prognosis for Budha-related activities remains very positive.

Masculine Nativities

The male in 2nd pada of Uttarabhadrapada is typically a regular fellow (Budha, fellowship), respectful of others (Shani), and thus considered good company. It is a Pushkara Navamsha, thus personal behavior = exemplary, distinguished by cordiality and sincere interest in social harmony accomplished through the enlightened rule of law.

Nice manners and fortune in life, although perhaps too much concentrated upon building one's Great Works and as a result less inclined to accept the responsibilities of raising a family.

May choose a social bachelorhood (Budha) or prefer to enter the ranks of the celibate religious (Merton) but the reason for not marrying is to free up time for the Visionary Work (Guru-Shani).

Both male and female prefer the company of civilized, reflective personalities. Women with this placement do well as celibate nuns in the women's monasteries (convents) of the female religious orders

Feminine Nativities

The female is also blessed but in a different way. She tends more toward management of a respectful and welcoming home where all family members treat each other with dignity. The children are well prepared for adulthood, and they bring honor to their parents. In maturity she enters the service of humanity, often by developing a Great Work of some sort.

Uttarabhadrapada Pada-3 = Thula navamsha

-- from Das / Behari

  • You are very gentle in nature, liberal and learned.

from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 108:

  • A ruddy complexion, of medium height, tendency to early baldness.

  • Is hasty and stubborn;

  • A gracious location for both men and women,

    • tending toward scholarship and the meditative arts.

    Very gentle."

BPL comment:

Uttara-bhadra-pada-3 radical lagna puts

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-3 nativity shows many of the typical Thula traits of bargaining, trade, negotiation, match-making, deal-making, concern with the terms of the contractual agreement, and seeking of alliance.

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-3 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of Karkata such as rhythms and routines of a settled people, folk customs, local environments, protective and nurturing behaviors, caretaking, parenting, guardianship, stewardship, nourishment, stabilization , groundskeeping, homekeeping, gardening, farming, fishing, ocean tides, estuaries, cultivation, protection of land and property, patriotism , safety, policing, homemaking, nursing, early childhood teaching, sheltering, defending, temple rituals, seasonal festivals, comforts. real-estate, building, transportation, infrastructural security of the settlement.

Any graha located in patriotic Karkata 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The definition of the public career may fluctuate because Professor Chandra indicates Ebb and Flow.

BPL: Thula navamsha pada-3 Uttarabhadrapada: Sensual Zukra rules the pada, whilst strict Shani rules the nakshatra and generous Guru rules the rashi. Zukra-Shani form a gracious, architecturally balanced pair.

Relationships with women, both personal and professional, are dignified (Shani) and satisfying (Zukra). All things Zukra-proportion, such as design arts, music, sensual pleasures, matters of the face and mouth, women, sisters, alliances, negotiations, and financial well-being, can be expected to flourish.

Uttarabhadrapada Pada-4 = Vrizchika navamsha

from Das / Behari:

"You will be rich, endowed with all comforts, good and devoted spouse,

  • one daughter and one son living and long life to them.

  • You will meet with some danger due to water when you are 5 years old,

  • dysentery and high fever when you are 8 years old,

  • too much unexpected complications when you are nine years old.

Moves in the eastern direction when you are 24 years old in connection with employment."

  • Same as pada-1.

BPL comment:

Uttara-bhadra-pada-4 radical lagna puts

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-4 nativity shows many of the typical Vrizchika traits of pursuit of hidden empowerments, sharp focus on the mysterious and confidential, drive to control, manipulative or intrusive nature, explosions and implosions, and energetic penetration of secrets.

The Uttara-bhadra-pada-4 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of Simha such as politics and political elections, theatre, literary creativity, performance arts, celebrity, royal entitlements, pageantry, poetry, ceremony, entertainments, ceremonial dance, children, romance, courtly love, games, gambling, expressions of genius, applause, brilliant confidence, solar power, bright lights, Divine Intelligence, self-knowledge, ego, individuality, independence, non-conformity, exceptionalism, uniqueness, center of attention, brilliant red things.

Any graha located in glittering Simha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be brightly visible because Professor Ravi indicates self-referential radiance.

There is potential for the development of a splendid healer and brilliant symbol of intelligent transformation. But there is an equal potential for the development of an doctrinally motivated political dictator.

BPL: Vrizchika navamsha pada-4 Uttarabhadrapada:

Sudden, secretive, energized, eruptive, transformative dynamic of Mangala is trying to express itself = to emerge, to be effective = within Shani's regulated, structured world. It is similar to the uttama-Mangala -Makara producing great success in business in conquesting pursuit of innovation and inventiveness .

However pada-4-uttarabhadra is also capable of producing such vigorously energized identity change (8, Vrischika) that catastrophic loss may ensue. Albeit, after each (often violently) enforced identity change, a rebirth with new ideas and new resources does occur.


radical lagna uttarabhadra-4

As always, the parameters of external success will be set by the character of (1) Mangala (2) Shani and (3) Guru within the radical nativity. If Guru is especially strong, charitable instincts of pada-4-uttarabhadra can be profoundly effective.

Note that even if there is no external evidence of changing-power because the energy has moved (Kuja) into spiritual and [philosophical pursuits rather than into actions of business or government (Shani) -- still this person is a significant agent of transformative change.

Whether the nature of the change is constructive or destructive depends entirely upon the interrelationship of Kuja + Shani + Guru.

  • Standard Oil 1874-1960 philanthropy John D. Rockefeller had atmakaraka Mangala not only in radix bhava-12 (charity) but also in 10th navamsha = public roles.

He withdrew from commerce (12). Uttarabhadra-pada-4 is programmed to serve society via individual actions (Mangala).
