Feminine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary

For Mriga-sirasa births of a feminine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Mangala-ruled paradigm of Invaka, brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by the civilizations of Orion. Their purpose is to promote engaging, instinctive messages that conquer, compete, startle, stimulate, pioneer, and provoke.


Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa ladies tend to be physically fit, agile, energetic sportswomen and dancers. They are often found in politics, entertainment, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage. They have a particular intuition for crowd-driven movements such as fashions, market pricing, and economic trends.

Mraga are surprisingly accurate markswomen, able to handle weapons if necessary. Natural engineers, they often have expertise in manufacturing, metalwork, and sewing. Agrahayani ladies may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, brothers, and soldiers. Due to the crystalline structure of their noses, Mraga-born have an extraordinarily acute sense of smell.

Vrishabha-Urisha pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Zukra-Kuja attraction. Pada 1-2 pursue gracious arrangements, match-making, and brokerage in secluded environments, such as the private bedroom or in distant lands. Their goal is the formation of vitally valuable partnerships. Depending upon Yogakaraka Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward governance roles,

Mithunaya-Dvamdva pada 3-4 represent the 6-11 angle and the Budha-Kuja tension. Pada 3-4 are vocal socialites skilled in conflict intervention, and natural ministers of aid. Pada 3-4 may focus on community activism, economic profits, and service to the wounded (whether the wounds are physical, mental, or emotional).

Themes of forward movement, group activity, and sporting competition may contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mriga-zirasa

Prominent Features of the Nativity


Victoria's father was an aristocratic military officer. Although he suffered lifelong debt and profligacy, nevertheless he was eligible to ascend to the English throne. Victoria improbably became Queen through her father's lineage.


Victoria's mother was a widowed princess of Leiningen. She spoke little English and though lovely and cultured Chandra in Rohini, she remained socially isolated Chandra in classroom-12 . Her marriage to Victoria's father, an indebted military officer 20 years her senior, produced baby Alexandrina Victoria within the first year of remarriage. The Duke died eight months later. The princess was required to remain in England to protect Victoria, upon whom her mother's livelihood depended. Victoria complained about her smother-mother, at one point imposing a no-contact ban.


Victoria Diamond Jubilee 1897



Victoria (age 18) in 1837


Queen Victoria (UK) in 1867 (her age 48)


UK Queen 1819-1901 Empire Victoria-1 as a young woman, by the German painter Franz Xaver Winterhalter. This lovely portrait was hidden by the royal family from the time of its creation in 1843 (her age 24) until 2010, when it was finally displayed to the public. According to the press release at the time, the royal family's reputation guardians had considered its passionate expression as rather too loose and naughty

Surya * pitrikaraka * jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Vrizabha * Ravaye * the noisy one, the roaring one (Ravi = firebird; Rava = howl, yell, or squawk)
  • Surya in bhava-12 * center of Other-Worlds, brightly contemplative, focus on seclusion, invisible light-source provides private guidance, intuitive entitlements, intelligence for interior prayer, eye on imagination * sparkling center of the clairsentient drama
  • Surya-yuti-Chandra * confidently sensitive, bright comforter, entitled to parent, radiantly rhythmic, creatively intelligent mother, emotional father-figure, politically and culturally aligned parents, radiantly rhythmic, aligned parents


Dad Prince Edward, Duke of Kent held a hereditary entitlement. Surya in bhava-12 indicates that VIctoria did not consciously know her father. He died of pneumonia when little Victoria was four years old.

Surya in bhava-12 also suggests that her father was a foreigner, or one with extensive international residence and identity. Although born to aristocratic entitlement in the line of succession to the English throne, Edward was German-English bilingual (like most of the royal family) holidayed in Germany and at age 18 he was sent back to Germany for military education. He lived in Germany and foreign military assignments for most of his adult life.

After making a second marriage to a German princess (Victoria's mom) they ran short of funds and returned to Germany. The family had only been briefly returned to England when dad died.


Surya in bhava-12 = international political orientation. Surya in bhava-12 is often found in nativities of world leaders who have a covert dimension to their international dealings. Most arrangements are conducted on private channels, in invisible (12) settings.

Surya in bhava-12 as ruler of 3-communications = international political intelligence by which Victoria arranged all of her children's marriages to the royal families of Europe. Although they spread throughout the continent, her widespread family often visited her. Lagnesha Budha-yuti-Zukra also indicates a master social-networker.

Education, literacy

Surya rules Bhava-3 = 4th-from-Chandra = Surya-yuti-Chandra

Victoria was well-educated for a woman of her day. She received her mother's German cultural perspective and conducted most daily communications in court German. In the English government of which she was the titular ruler, Victoria demanded and received copies of all important documents. Her opinion and alliances were surprisingly powerful and enduring, due largely to her ability to express her views in a literate and articulate English aristocratic style.

Consider also in terms of education,

the empowered drishti of karmesha Guru + Shani + Mangala + Rahu upon bhava-4, providing an impetus to acquire the tools of leadership, despite personal apathy, much counteracting the distancing effect of Ketu-4

Her cousin and husband Albert, also a court-educated German national, learned English intentionally after he married Victoria. Husband's foundational schooling = 4th-from-Guru = Budha in 11-Meza, competitive skills.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka

  • Chandra-Vrishabha * uttama * comforted by rhythmic historical tonal values
  • Chandra in Rohini * mulatrikona * comforted by lavish appreciation * protectors of luxurious domiciles, beautiful caretaking, rhythmic arrangements, sensitive security
  • Chandra in classroom-12 ** narrative of body, bifurcated self-image, discusses physical appearance, describer of embodiment, explainer of tangible self, delivers instructions for self-characterization, articulation of communicative movement, animated gestures, talks about personality, details the two-sided identity
  • Somana-yuti-Surya * Emotionally entitled, sensitive to charismatic figures, attached to the father, needs centrality, comforted by confidence, undulating entitlements, soothed by attention, feels like a king

Somana-yuti-Surya = bhava-12

Mom (Soma) and dad (Surya) both primarily inhabited an enclosed (12), private, rarified, bedroom-oriented, sanctuary environment created by the customs of their small, exclusive social class. When Victoria was born, the aristocratic classes were strictly prohibited from socializing with non-elites, and their lives were circumscribed and inbred. They mainly kept to themselves or visited elite relatives in distant lands.

Shani drishti to Chandra

  • = Mother's discipline, restriction, depression
  • = Victoria's petite height . She stood four-foot-11-inches tall

Languages = bhava-2 ruled by Chandra in classroom-12

Mom spoke only German, as did most of her courtiers. Victoria's ethnic German husband mastered English in his 20's, several years after their marriage.

As the future Queen of England, British-born Victoria spoke and wrote fluent elite-register native English as taught by her tutors. In addition to English and German, Victoria was a capable reader of French and Italian, and she could interpret basic Latin documents.


Victoria was a prodigious letter-writer. Surya rules 3 while Chandra rules 3rd-from-Chandra

She wrote every day, to many correspondents, and voluminously. She bound all of her children, siblings, and many other relatives closely to her via frequent, detailed, emotional letters of correspondence. Her extensive hands-on management facilitated discussions, transactions, correspondence, exerting significant control over the royal houses of all Europe


Mom = Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. Chandra-Vrishabha * uttama ruling 2-treasuries = mother's beauty, wealth, and privilege. However Mom was also isolated (12).

Chandra in classroom-12 suggests that her mother was a foreigner = a sanctuary-seeking, deeply private person with perhaps a condition of mental or emotional illness or distress. Mom had married dad as a German widow with two children, come to England, but never learned English and maintained a German-speaking household. She did not venture outside the palace, did not attempt to communicate with English-speakers, and kept Victoria in her bedroom until Victoria was married.

Victoria was said to deeply resent her mother's excessively protective and fearful enclosure. As soon as she was legally able, Victoria abandoned her mother and mother's advisors.

MARRIAGE partnership support expectations


  • marriage-1 = bhava-6 = Prince Consort Albert. Although Albert and Victoria showed a facade of happy family life, there was a significant power imbalance (6) which caused Albert to feel aggrieved (6). No matter his contribution to the national governance, he was apprehended as a noble servant and paramour. As an intelligent and capable man whose abilities were marginalized by his marriage, Albert was naturally frustrated. This emotional stress -- along with the appallingly unsanitary (6) conditions of their decrepit royal home -- may well have contributed to his early demise.


  • lifepartnership-2 = bhava-1
  • As a widow following the death of husband Albert, Queen Victoria developed an intensely sentimental but secret relationship with the master of her equerry, Mr. John Brown. This cross-class relationship lasted for decades but ended with Brown's sudden death age 56. Brown's death = the notorious Shani-Rahu bhukti. Victoria's journals show her reeling in grief .

    Budha-yuti-Zukra-Azvini, suggesting and enduring if dreamlike second partnership associated with horses (azvini). John Brown Balmoral Ghillie and personal attendant, Mr. John Brown. As an Arudra-Orion women with atmakaraka Mangala drishti into her Mithunaya lagna, Victoria would have been a passionate human being. Chandra in Rohini requires an attentive husband. Rahu-ruled Arudra has a stormy temperament and often breaks taboo. One born with Chandra in classroom-12 finds the second marriage partner to be well-matched to the truths of the physical body.

  • Mr. Brown was reputed to be muscularly strong, gifted in handling animals, direct in speech to the point in bullying, and loyal to a fault. Although Brown predeceased Victoria by 14 years, Victoria was buried by her own instructions wearing Brown's mother's wedding ring upon the third finger of her right hand., holding Brown's photo and a lock of his hair in her left hand.
Second child = 7th-from-Chandra (6) Vrischika.

Queen Victoria suffered a notoriously unpleasant relationship with her second child and eldest son, Edward Albert. Prince of Wales.

Their relationship soured over time, due to the poor public reputation engendered by his self-indulgent spending and sexual profligacy. Her exceptionally long reign (63 years) delayed his Kingship, which he patently resented. Although marked at birth as the male heir-apparent, he was only able to reign for nine years following his mother's death.

Victoria and Albert both accused their son, Edward VII "the Playboy Prince",of immorality and profligacy, which was well documented via his numerous mistresses (6) some from unsavory backgrounds (6). Like his grandfather and namesake, Edward had a respected military career (6) and shared the camp lifestyle of that profession. His mother, disliking his character, retreated from public life following the death of Albert. Yet she was unwilling to step aside to enable her son's kingship. Edward Albert soured as the ever-in-waiting heir to the throne for nearly 40 years.

Edward Albert's rage at his mother's manipulations emerged after her death, when, finally in power, he ordered the destruction of her books, papers, personal effects, and especially her statue-and-medal commemorations of her second husband, John Brown.

Much of Victoria's copious writing, painting, and several of her commissioned artworks were destroyed posthumously by her vindictive son Edward, who declared them unseemly. Edward detested John Brown, and many of his mother's most passionate expressions referred directly or indirectly to her beloved faithful servant..

Kuja * bhratru-karaka * virya-karaka


Kuja drishti to 1-4-5

Mangala rules the career-professional Vrischika 10th navamsha, suggesting a career focused on intrigues, secrets, revolutions (1848) and widowhood.

  • Mangala-Meena * vigorous pursuit of intuition * proactive envisioning * push toward imaginative perception
  • Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala Mangala in bhava-10 * dig-bala * drive toward high position, pursuit of social authority, fights for rank and status, , invasive regulation, ,hierarchical dynamics, energized governing conquests, champion of leadership elites
  • Kuja-yuti-Shani * repressed movements, energized rules, dynamic structuring, masculine force joins disciplined regulation, potential for aggressive or punitive reactions to change
  • Kuja-yuti-Rahu * thrill of muscular action, excited competition, energized pretense, dynamic desires, masculine force joins opportunistic ambition, potential for aggressive pursuit of privileges

Budha * bandhava-karaka * zisya-karaka


  • Budha-Meza * innovative communications, pioneering pronouncement, articulation of dynamic movement, vigorous descriptive explanations, challenging conversation, messages about contests and competitions
  • Budha in bhava-11 * narrative of economy, community, network * narrative of economy and ecology, distributive and associative networks * social participation linkage, describer of friendship  and voluntary connections , explainer of gains and goals, delivers instructions for interlinked systems, talks about large assemblies + webs of community 
  • Budha-yuti-Zukra * explainer of balanced arrangements * affinity for diplomatic, parity-seeking roles expressing skills of communication, explanation, description, instruction * explainer of balanced arrangements, articulation of equity in agreements, message of justice and fairly bargained contracts; songwriting , chatty partners, talkative sister-cousin-cohort, lyricist , talkative sister-cousin-cohort, lyricist

Guru * dhavakaraka * bahuta-karaka

  • Guru-Makara-Draco * nichha * much social structure, many rules, materialistic beliefs, doctrine of rank and structure, realistic guidance, pragmatic worldview, expands the scope of philosophical realism, multiple interactions with government and institutional authority
  • Guru in bhava-8 * much secrecy, many sudden changes. many confidences, numerous identity transformations, abundant initiation, extensive hidden assets
  • nichha-Guru-8 parivartamsha Shani-10.

Guru-8 rules-10 = although a highly public figure appearing to be pure of heart and strictly ethical, Victoria maintained an extraordinary camouflage behind which she did exactly as she desired.

Guru-8 often indicates hidden assets due to alimony, divorce settlement, insurance payment, lottery, or inheritance large enough to live without working.

Unlike today's UK royalty, Victoria was socially isolated and did very little in terms of charity or public ceremonies. She was paid for her genetics and for iconic power to represent the British Empire.

Bhava-8 = conditions of death (not death, just the conditions)

  • nichha-Guru may be beneficial in dusthamsha
  • Seven assassination attempts. She survived them all and lived until age 81.

dhava-karaka Guru-8 in in 9th-from-Chandra = Husband-1 Prince Consort Albert

Born with Chandra in Rohini , Victoria felt fortunate in the company of her attentive cousin-husband Albert. Yet there would have been constant upheaval affected by their mutual concern with money, status, and power (nichha-Guru)

  • Nichha-Guru ruling 7 + 10 suggests that Albert was a capable ruler, but Guru-8 obscures him and his leadership is not acknowledged. In Victoria's early decades, the British parliament was barely tolerating its historic support for the expensive, unproductive royal classes.
  • As a public expense in times of tight budget, Albert was considered a nichha-Guru over-expansion. Victoria tried hard to get her husband recognized as a kingly consort. However, her petitions were considered excessive (Guru).
  • In an age of extreme masculinity, Albert was a weak (nichha) example of the ideal.

Zukra * svadhu-karaka * kalatra-karaka

  • Zukra-Meza * appreciation of competitive movement, likes innovation, attracted to champions, pleasures of conquest, athletic sensuality, enjoys direct action, aristocratic arrangements
  • Zukra -11 * pleasure of community linkage, enjoys network equity, feminine-figures have social-participation, balanced economies, association with artists and financiers, graciously inter-knit community, appreciation of friendships, aesthetic of fair deals in marketplace, seeks economic justice
  • Zukra-yuti-Budha * sweetened messages, gracious explanations, singing and songwriting, articulate negotiations, sibling-cohort communicative arrangements, youthful beauty

Zukra-11 revenues rules-5 ++ royal privilege, intelligence, and children (5)

Ruler of 5 royalty, celebrity, entitlement = Zukra occupies 11 yuti lagnesha Budha.

Victoria's queenly financial income was completely supplied by Parliament, who paid her purse from citizen taxes. Although there were some weak attempts to limit her royal budget, Victoria's subsidies were never reduced, and her luxury lifestyle never ended.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

  • Shani-Meena * heavy old dreams, tightly regulated imagination, obliged to conform to the will of the cetaceans, vital energy compression stress zone = feet, strictly imposed conditions of sanctuary, must endure lowest-common-denominator proletarian prayer, slow elder diviners, limited access to ancient ancestor guides, must materialize the vision, must sustain the effort of connecting the material senses with the astral vision despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-10 * (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious  responsibilities. One must govern the old order. Must maintain the dignity of reputation. Cautious, conventional leadership. Tense=ion in governance roles. Chronic weighty executive duties, heavy work portfolio sustains the social hierarchy; Oppressed by lack of freedom to choose social policies..Resistance to new rules. Resentment toward changes in authority. Intolerance toward unconventional leaders.. Governance fatigue. Support for socially-approved, rigidly dutiful roles as president, director, boss, governor, mayor.
  • Shani-yuti-Mangala * resistance against vital birth, pragmatic actions, cautious innovation, limited progress, physical discipline, constrained movement, regulated competition. Tension from contradictory push-pull in the body-personality.
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * resistance against ambition, pragmatic cultural mixing, disciplined thrills, limited privilege, constrained opportunism, irregular slow elders, regulated risks

Shani dharmesha rules-9 obligation to maintain received doctrine, catechisms of religious belief, patrons and patronage.

Shani Mahadasha * age 48.5 until age 67.5

Shani-10 rules Kumbha12th-from-10-Meena erosion of interest in high position +++ Shani-10 rules 8 = 11th-from-10th profits from leadership

Result is a constant ebb-and-flow between substantial untaxed funding ++ threatened loss of this rich funding

Victoria had been deeply involved in the intrigues of government during her mahadasha Rahu-10 and Guru-karmesha. Rahu Mahadasha started in her teenage years and Guru Mahadasha ended with widowhood and withdrawal. By Shani-Shani onset, she completely withdrew into private life.

She had limited governance authority due to ruler-of-12th-from-10th-in-10th. Yet she had a great passion for promoting the interests of herself and her entitled relatives, and she vigorously engaged with her political allies in matters of key financial policy. Shani-10 in 12th-from-11 also eroded her income.

Parliament regularly balked at her demand for full subsidies, including rent-free housing, servants, equerry and carriages, and untaxed lands for her and her dependents. Aside from the occasional parade, she did little to contribute to public life. Her entitlements were based on blood (Mesha) not merit. Although often threatened with de-funding, she made a few key allies in Parliament. With funding often threatened by never denied, her unearned lifestyle flowed without interruption.

Shani-yuti-Mangala much resistance and delay of urgent projects

Shani-10 drishti to Chandra-yuti-Surya suggests that both of her parents accepted the strictures of public life. Young Victoria developed a facade composed of pious displays of moral purity and sexual restraint Shani-yuti-Mangala which became the hallmarks of Victorian culture.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

  • Revatika high pitched signals * Rahu-Meena * shimmering illusion of immersion * craving for symbolic guidance * mirage of imaginative wisdom * mesmerizing aura of concealing fog * mask of dreamlike Other Worlds * fascinating prayers *extraordinary ancestor guides * fabulous clairsentience * intriguing sleep-states * seeks special importance via apparent (but perhaps not authentic) attributes of deep trance, private intuition, interior guidance, contemplative-roles
  • Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power * in swabhava of Sober Shani, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual iconic, symbolic, representational, government, executive authority, social status. Rahu-10 desires an important regulating role in materially privileged, socially visible ranks. Exciting, potentially fraudulent, opportunistic character of the leaders, bosses and government officials. Thrives in culturally-mixed legislative, executive settings. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a boss, an authority-figure, a decision-maker, a legislator, a tyrant. Rahu-10 trespasses the cultural boundaries of governance authority, social dignity. Thrilling hunger for high-recognition, empowered reputation, respect. Ambition of the father's family
  • Rahu-yuti-Mangala * amplified competition, magnified championship, exotic pursuits, tricky innovation, opportunistic brother-warriors, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of inventive, dynamic energy, hypnotic attack, engineered force of cross-cultural mixing
  • Shani-yuti-Rahu * amplified orderliness, magnified systematics, exotic rules, tricky regulations, opportunistic elders, fascinating (but perhaps illusory) appearance of strictly lawful structures, hypnotic social ranking, pragmatic order of cross-cultural mixing
Rahu rules Arudra-Orion radical lagna

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Kanya * dissociates from accusatory complaints, incomplete service, empty disagreements, dissolute arguments, not limited by stigmatized status, ignores restriction on imbalance
  • Ketu in classroom-4 * ambivalent toward the homestead, absentee mother-figure, disregards local customs, dissolved property boundaries, wanders from home, irrelevance of the established folkways. One abandons the nationality, dismisses the parents, walks away from the ancestral routines.

Ketu in classroom-4 occupies 5th-from-Chandra . Her eldest daughter did move far away into a German family at age 17 at a time when travel was difficult and the state interests of the two countries were in conflict thus placing considerable distance between Victoria and her eldest child born 21-Nov-1840 Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa

Yet there was a close relationship by letter-writing due to the strengthening effects of Shani-Mangala-Rahu ++ Guru drishti into 5th-from-Chandra, suggesting that Victoria worked assiduously to maintain the connection with her eldest. Her daughter died a few months after Victoria.
