Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Mriga-zirasa * Mraga * Marga-ziraza * Agrahayani

BPL commentary

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

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

Verbally Incisive and Commanding

Gentlemen born within a nakshatra of Mangala are gifted with a knack for competition. Shrewd, verbally intimidating, and goal-directed in Mriga-Sirasa, they strive for dominance within their cohort. Mriga are often found in business management, commercial finance, sales, marketing, advertising, script-writing, publishing, propaganda, cinema, and media-communications.

Kuja-ruled Mriga-zirasa chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. They are often found in politicsm manufacturing, media-messaging, and commerce, especially in sales, marketing, and advertising roles where their energy delivers competitive advantage.

Mraga are often accurate marksmen, able to handle weapons and metal equipment. Agrahayani fellows may have a special affinity for quadruped animals, bands of 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. Those born in pada 1-2 pursue artistic communications, legal contracts, equity, and brokerage in secluded enclosures, such as research laboratories, private rooms, or the imagination. They have special gifts for fantasy, imagery, and distant worlds. 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 of doing-vs-talking. Pada 3-4 are profit-driven and not averse to theft or breaking contracts for advantage. They have a special gift for marketplace systems. Friends (11) and enemies (6) have equal influence. Pada 3-4 may focus on friendships, economics, and dominating the competition..

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

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"Unless other testimonies in the chart predominate to modify the effect of Mraga rising,

  • these people may be very unpleasant characters.

They are inclined to be misanthropic in their attitude toward life and people.

  • They seem always to see the worst side of people and of conditions.

They are suspicious of other peoples' motives

  • and even vicious at times.

Unless checked, these thoughts will lead to vicious action

  • and they can be quite dangerous to others whom they dislike.

Possibly this attitude is caused and aggravated by some permanent organic disability

  • which is usually the lot of those who are born with Mraga rising."

a poem by Rudyard Kilpling

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you

But make allowance for their doubting too,

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,

If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breath a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;

If all men count with you, but none too much,

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

Surya * pitrikaraka * Jyotikaraka

  • Surya-Dhanuzya* Aditya * the unsplit, undivided

  • Dad was a sculptor and professor of architecture urya-yuti-Zukra . He held a prominent position in arts education in their British Colonial settlement in the great port of Bombay, India.
  • Surya-yuti-Zukra indicates that Kipling enjoyed his relationship with his artist father.

International House Shifts * urya-8 rules 4 locality.

SRK generated a lifetime pattern of international house-shifts which continued throughout his married adulthood. Seeking transformative change, he moved often between India his birth-land, England, New England (USA) and South Africa.


Surya-Dhanuzya rules 4-homeland

RK's Imperialistic literature and patriotic songs were wildly popular with Commonwealth and Euro-American readers during the heyday of the British Empire.

More than simply a literary author and songwriter, RK was a highly symbolic male personality. Admirers declared him to embody the genius (Surya) of a humanistic vision of global civilization Surya-Dhanuzya.

RK was the first English-language author to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature during the swabhukti of his yogakaraka dharmesha uttama-Shani. He remains the youngest writer ever to receive that prize

However, after the colonialist viewpoint had dissipated with the collapse of Empire following WW-2, RK's formerly praised genius was questioned. Eventually, literary critics disregarded RK's work as a romanticized artifact of Imperial culture.

After WW-2, RK's award of 1907 Nobel Prize in Literature began to be cited as a cautionary example of misguided enthusiasm among the tiny Euro-elite of prize-givers, and a call to be more alert to the political impact of Nobel Prizes.

Chandra * matrikaraka * garha-karaka



Chandra in classroom-1 rules Karkata-3 Karakamsha = writing, publication

uttama-Chandra rules Arudha lagna Karkata-3 = bhava-3 writing publications management administration scheduling

  • Chandra-Vrishabha * uttama * moolatrikona * 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-1 * comfort in glowing incandescent embodiment, familiar with forward action, needs to feel the repeating pulse of physical movement, settled into the rhythm of invention, feeling for first-arrival, soothed by aristocracy, emotionally attuned to new birth, routine activities, undulating personality

Icon of British Paternalism

In his day, Kipling was an enormously feted writer and celebrated public figure. RK appeared to many of his Edwardian generation to have epitomized the experience of a paternalistic (Chandra) colonial ruling elite, who were portrayed as kindly protectors Chandra-Vrishabha , slowly educating the childlike, vulnerable populations of their colonies.

Chandra in classroom-1 RK's robust language praising king and empire resonated deeply with a people seeking pride in their ethnic identity.

Sadly, RK's literary reputation has not withstood the test of time. Modern literary critics tend to disparage his characterizations as condescending rather than intriguing.

Conflict and upheaval: Chandra occupies 6/8 from secretive Dhanuzya-8 = hidden liaisons, wife's family

Somana's 6/8 angle from the intensely clandestine activities of bhava-8 containing RK's Budha + Surya + Guru + Mangala + Zukra.

  • RK would have experienced emotional conflict in virtually all of his life's activities. In particular, matters of the identity (1) and cultural customs (Chandra-1) would have been contentious and potentially toxic.
  • RK's sexual tastes Zukra+Kuja in Mula-8 created undisclosed relationships which were incompatible with cultural conventions.


Mom = Alice Macdonald Kipling, an artist and socialite. She was admired for her beauty and her wit. a popular entertainer, a familiar figure to all in their Anglo-Indian social class, a writer and conversationalist, one of four celebrity sisters * Chandra rules 3-siblings. Her personality and social connections aided her son's career.

Defining influence of Mother and parents-overall

Chandra in classroom-1 = personally identified with and emotionally close to both parents during his entire lifetime. RK often took long solo visits with his parents, leaving his wife and children behind.

RK's parents viscerally disliked his wife * Zukra-8 in awkward angle shad-ashtaka 6/8 toward Chandra-1 +++ Zukra-8 -Mula located in 8th-from-Chandra

Complex, hidden relationships * 8th-from-Chandra-1

Extramarital partners appear via four graha yuti Zukra.

The additionals are located in camouflaged bhava-8 suggesting a code of secrecy among the extras, who generally all knew each other. RK belonged to a literary men's club in London where he socialized with men like himself who identified with masculinity and Empire.

  • The men with whom RK socialized in England, New England, and South Africe, were reportedly not enamored of the frustrated and controlling Mrs. Kipling. She was nonetheless an unmoveable presence in RK's life seen via strict Shani in 7th navamsha ++ her Vrischika Chandra in his 7th-from-Chandra-1

Wife's family = 8 = 8th-from-Chandra * contains Zukra + Kuja + Budha (all in Mula) + Surya + Guru.

One of her brothers, the author-publisher Wolcott Balestier, is said to have been Kipling's romantic lover. Another of her brothers Beatty Balestier (Ballister) was their landlord in Vermont, USA; he was also Kipling's marketing, distribution, and publishing agent upon whose good will Kipling's career much depended.

Kipling had an extremely complex and demanding relationship with his in-laws.

  • Recently uncovered Literary correspondence, hidden since the 1880's, suggests that RK had passionate involvement with both of his wife's brothers.
  • Despite having been very productive in New England living near his wife's family, after a violent disagreement with his brother-in-law, RK suddenly removed his young family back to southern England.

His in-laws operated the publishing house which handled his promotions, distributions, and royalties. RK never worked with any other publishers.

MARRIAGE partnership mutual support expectations


  • = = bhava-7 contractual relationships. RK was married once. The union was said to be enduring, but unhappy.

7th-from-Chandra ruled by Mula-Kuja-8 ++ Mula-Kuja-8 takes drishti from disciplining uttama-Shani-6

Their marriage was said to have been lacking attraction while holding customary roles .RK's Chandra in classroom-1 expresses emotional alignment with family protection, housekeeping, and parenting. He adored his children and was devastated when 2 of his three children died before finishing their 18th year.

RK was promoted as a model parent-writer, who produced much-beloved books for children. However friends reported that his spousal affections were limited. RK took extended trips to visit male friends, or his parents (Chandra) leaving his wife unsupported for long periods of time. Intensifying matters is the powerful uttama-Chandra in 6/8 adversarial shad-ashtakya to kalatra-karaka Zukra, suggesting that RK's emotional nature was misaligned with that of his wife..

Comfort Zone

Chandra in Vrishabha * rules the managing, commercial 3rd-from-Chandra familiar rhythms and routines. Karkata 3 = also the arudha lagna ++ the karakamsha. This geometry suggests that one is most comfortable emotionally when working on a project. Carrie and Rudyard produced a lifetime of literary projects, and most of them enjoyed significant commercial success.

Loss of two children * 6 graha in 12th-from-5th

TrTragically, two of his three children died prematurely: a daughter of pneumonia age-6 and a son by shrapnel in WW-1 age-18. Attributable to the weight of graha in 4.

  • Mangala yuvathipathi + vyayapathi
  • Kuja-8-Mula rules both 7 and the marriage-adversarial 6th-from-7th
  • Kuja + Zukra + Budha occupy Mula
  • Kuja rules 7th-from Chandra in classroom-1

Kuja involved RK in numerous discreet relationships with men (including with both of Carrie's brothers) which caused increasing unhappiness in hthe marriage.

Mangala Mahadasha * age 0.5 until age 7.5

Kipling accounted the earliest years of life to have been blissful and idyllic. He remembered the joy of a close supportive bond with his parents (7 = 4th-from-4th + 7th-from-Chandra), their siblings (his uncles and aunts) and his younger sister.

Mula-8 = Guru + Budha + Kuja-Mula = secrecy, violence, traumatic abuse

RK recounted deep scars due to physical violence and psychological bullying = Kuja-Ketu bhukti ++ Sade-Sati

  • Age six, RK was shipped to England, thousands of miles away from his family in Bombay. The hostess with whom his parents boarded him was viciously strict with harsh beatings and punishment for moral correction. When RK's mother discovered the abuses, she quietly removed him and nothing was mentioned (Ketu) until years later.

Kipling's imaginative fantasy writings with their signature phonetic sing-song verse became extremely famous and celebrated throughout the Anglosphere

Using a phonetic style that was easy for English readers of all social classes to read-out-loud to their children, Kipling became a darling of children's literature. This clever orthography (Chandra-1-uttama rules 3-writing systems) pleasantly expressed the translation (3) of the Indic phonology was received by Anglo ears.

Carrie and her publisher family were RK's exclusive agents. * cluster of Graha yuti Zukra.

Their comprehensive management of his literary work facilitated Kipling's work being distributed throughout the Anglosphere.

Conflict ensued after Kipling's literary reputation had been established and he wanted more lifestyle freedom (particularly, to keep the company of the men he preferred). However his wife's family had so much clout that he suffered their restrictions in order to maintain his career.

His wife was said to have been bitter about his regular, long sojourns from their home when he commingled with other gentlemen of similar background.

Zukra-Mula occupies 6/8 from Chandra ++ Zukra rules the emotionally conflicted 6th-from-Chandra = Shani-Thula-6

Effective if unappreciated

Carrie (Zukra) was said to have organized every detail of their home life (4, 7) so that her husband could have the optimal writing conditions.

  • Despite their personality mismatches, Rudyard and Carrie Kipling worked together for decades. Her support was integral to his literary success both ergonomically and commercially.
  • Shani drishti to Zukra shows the discipline with which Carrie arranged their family life in strict detail, so that Rudyard could continue to write at home without unwanted interruption.

Desires a special, important role in performance arts, literary arts, entertainments, royalty roles, pageantry, celebrity events, or dramatic splendor. Exciting, opportunistic, ambitious children and lovers. Rahu the Poseur may wear the persona (mask) of a dramatic actor, a celebrated intellectual, or a politician. Craves the center stage, the lights, the glory. Rahu-5 trespasses the cultural boundaries in matters of unique personal creativity, children, speculation, gaming. Seeks flamboyant fashion, exceptional offspring, and the thrill of political theatre.

Rahu in bhava-5 ceremonies, creativity awards casts drishti into

Privilege-seeking Rahu in bhava-5-celebrity casts drishti upon Chandra-1-uttama-identity

RK won a stupendous number of prizes, not least of which was the 1907 Nobel Prize in Literature.

RK was born into a celebrated family . His mother and her three sisters were famed for their beauty and creativity; all the sisters married elite men. RKs early years were said to have been pampered and pleasant. His parents' artistic accomplishments were helpful in raising the social profile of RK's own artistic, literary, and other public endeavors.

Rahu in bhava-5 ambition for privilege via creative arts, publications, political drama

FAME * Budha speech rules Rahu creative literature

A century later, the patronizing colonial philosophy is decidedly out of date. However, most of Kipling's writing is still in print. English-speaking children worldwide are read Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by their parents - due mainly to the charm of his phonetic renderings. For better or for worse, one of the strongest common images of India transmitted to the outside world remains the charming tonal stereotypes of Kipling's fiction

Ketutu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

  • Ketu-Meena * dissociates from Otherworldly understanding, incomplete clairsentience, empty dreams, dissolute guidance, not limited by cetacean culture, ignores restriction on intuition, disarrayed wisdom, applies symbolic understanding to the misty abyss
  • Ketu in classroom-11 * absent from friendships, disregards profitability * no barriers in community, dissolves the social network, vacuous associations, irrelevance of the material goals, ambivalence toward economic empowerment. One abandons the elder siblings, ignores marketplace earnings, surrenders the electro-magnetic connections. May prefer to live without electricity, or off-the-grid.

Ketu occupies the emotionally motivated community-linking, gainful, friendly, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra RK did not bring his friends to his home.
