BPL commentary

For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.

Spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula. Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.

Fearless Deconstructivism

Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness. Although apparently tame personalities, Nirriti are emotionally comfortable with extreme risk. Often they go enthusiastically where angels fear to tread.

Mula has a surprising ability to convince others to grant them power - sometimes, absolute power. Mula's perception features a mix of ambivalence and apathy not only toward others but toward oneself. Liberated from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born under auspice of nakshatrapathi Alakmi preach their paradigm of belief without concern for material consequences. Thus freed from worry, they can be guided entirely by ideology with little-or-no pragmatic constraint.

Often involved in religious or political indoctrination, Mula may expound an eschatology of annihilation., Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration. Niritti may be associated with shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.

Having almost no fear of death, Mula engage in self-destructive behavior. Patriarchal sponsors and patronage may be essential to their success. Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of religious preaching, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, ideological indoctrination, radical military, politics, and organized crime.

Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace , and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mula's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mula

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86.

"... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,

  • who is able to handle people

  • and make them serve his needs through tact and diplomacy.

A politician .

An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

  • yet who is not sincere

  • but may even be unfaithful to his constituents

  • and ungrateful and unappreciative of favors received if the occasion arises.

The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound;

  • but who when he leaves, also leaves a lurking distrust

Extremely clever and capable ."

VPOTUS In My Time 1941- Dick Cheney

No graha yuti Zukra in D-1. No graha yuti Zukra in D-9. No graha in the rashi of Zukra in D-1. One marriage is forecast with fidelity to the marriage overall. Furthermore, atmakaraka vargottamsha Zukra in swamsha suggests that the feminine partner is an integral component of the career and indeed the definitive maker of one's psycho-spiritual identity.

Zukra-bhava-5 Political in Dhanuzya (humanistic philosophy) suggests that the feminine partner is a political agent in her own right. Among her numerous accomplishments, Mrs. Lynne Cheney, Ph.D. English Literature, served as politically powerful chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities 1986-1993.

Budha in yuvati-bhava-7 suggests a mate and business partners who are attorneys or who think like attorneys. These are verbally skillful, mercurial individuals who are adept at bargaining, match-making, deal-making, crafting settlements and agreements. Budha as Vriddhipathi-11 indicates that the partners, both marital and professional, are gainful via their deal-making administrative (Budha) and advising (7) wordcraft.

yuvatipathi-7 nichha-Shani in 9 indicates the activities of bhava-7 = counseling, advising, partnering = are wealth-expanding (9) yet guided by principles of crude selfishness (Shani-Mesha).
