Feminine Nativities

Visaka* Radha

BPL commentary:

For Visaka births of a feminine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Due to the definitive influence of dhava-karaka Guru, ladies born in Puna, Visaka, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the husband.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka. Their purpose is facilitation of shocking insights by lightning-strike and expansive growth by root-splitting..

High forehead. Saptarishi-ruled births come equipped with a global perspective. The majority of Visaka nativities are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles.

Thula pada 1-2-3 expresses Saptarishi's rulership of 3-Writing-commerce + 6-service ministry or victimhood. Pada 1-2-3 also evoke the tension between Zukra's one-to-one relationships versus Guru's one-to-many preachings. Pada 1-2-3 may be experts on the subject of relationships, both seen and unseen. They have a broad understanding of the power of polarities. They are often found in advising and recommending roles (Zukra) which engage ideology or theory (Guru) such as psychotherapy, university teaching, policy consultant, or political lobby.

Although the husband is globally minded, for Thula-Visaka the husband may also be impoverished or ailing (due to Guru rules 3-6).

Vrischika Pada-4 emphasizes Guru's rulership of 2-affluence, collections ++ 5-creativity, entitlement. Pada 4 enjoys the spirited compatibility between Guru's optimism + Kuja's kinetic movement. Their husbands are charming, speculative, and affluent. Pada-4 has a broad understanding of the ultimate power of transformative beliefs. Pada-4 are often found in teaching and healing work, especially with the sexual-reproductive energies.

Themes of shocking growth via beliefs, widening expansion via root-splitting, and fertilization via jolts of electromagnetic Shakti may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

"... delicate features and a soft pleasing voice.

  • But do not let these deceive you.

Underneath she has a strong character , even hard at times.

  • She will always follow her own inclinations

  • and is not amenable to advice from others.

She will be distinctly appealing to the opposite sex

  • and will make a very fortunate marriage.

Her husband will be well-to-do if not wealthy

  • and she will have few if any children, not more than two.

She will be fond of travel and change

  • and will travel much with her husband .

Her favorite color is red or crimson.

She has beautifully shaped legs."
