Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects 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.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Denebola.

BPL commentary:

Uttara-phalguni ladies are famously confident and willful. Strong, principled political sensibilities pair with entitled roles. While much depends upon the characteristics of Surya, the feminine Falgun favors dramatic displays of royalty, celebrity, and power.

The first pada in Simha is noted for its brilliant centrality and stage presence, focused into the physical embodiment. Pada 2-3-4 in Kanya = equally smart and flamboyant, but more focused upon expressing the genius of the imagination. Often a splendid dramatist and performing musician. Kanya pada 2-3-4 radiate love for animals, and may undertake political activism on their behalf.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalguni

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

Chandra rules-6 joins Shani rules-12 and nichha-Guru creates a sarala-yoga. This extraordinary combination provided a very difficult mother who was also deeply supportive (in fact demanding) of her continued ministry (and mom outlived Aimee).

As a religious authority figure and charismatic healer, Aimee Kennedy Semple McPherson channeled the spirits, healed the sick, transformed the wicked, and took in donations enough to operate extensive charities based in the first megachurch in Los Angeles.

Three Marriages

7th from Chandra-1 = bhava-1 self-identity

Shani rules Kumbha-7 occupies lagna-Simha-1. The marriage although brief would have been influenced by vyayapathi-12 distant lands and Shani ripabhava-6 illness/animosity.

2nd-from-Chandra-1 = bhava-2 finance, family

Second marriage to an accountant (Kanya containing accurate-counter Budha). The marriage endured for one Rahu-cycle (9-10 years) This alliance produced one child and ended during Surya-Ketu period. The second marriage requires the native to remain somewhat obscured (8) which would not have been tolerable indefinitely for this vibrant performer.

9th-from-Chandra-1 = bhava-9 patronage, ideology

Third marriage to a dramatist who was working in the New York burlesque entertainment industry during the 1930's economic depression. Mangala ruler of 9 occupies purvashadha-5 suggesting entertainment, song-and-dance, and likely some politics.

"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble, all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious, whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."
