Feminine Nativities

Uttarazadha * Vaizva

BPL commentary:

For Uttara-azadha births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Dhanuzya Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. Nakshatrapathi Surya + Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns which stimulate creativity and authority. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, creative, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generously friendly. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine character. A woman born in Pada-1 is likely to teach- preach via her husband, although other arrangements are possible.

Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic nakshatrapathi Surya. From the Makara lagna, Surya becomes randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral (Shani). Pada 2-3-4 respect age and governance ordering. Yet their purpose is visionary (Surya). Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may be constructed around their secret light. A woman born in Pada-2-3-4 may be a spiritual healer in her own right. Her emotional dedication to the lifepartner's wellbeing arises from Chandra = yuvathipathi.

Themes of clairsentient vision, lawful transformation, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarazadha.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"...a contented nature.
