Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Mrigashiras - Invaka

Mraga - Mriga - Mruka - Marga - Agrahayani - Ena-shiras


For Mriga-shiras births of a masculine valence, the condition of kinesthetic, 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.

[Competitive Champion Kuja]-ruled Mriga chaps tend to be pro-active, and energetic in pursuit of the win. Although their physique could be quite heavyset, their agility is surprising. Agrahayani-born are often found in politics, 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 exceptionally acute sense of smell.

[Vrishabha - Urisha] pada 1-2 represent the 7-12 angle and the Shukra-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, Urisha pada-1-2 of Mriga have a stronger propensity toward guidance [9] and governance roles [10] .

[Mithuna - 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 contextualize Mriga's terrestrial experience. Incoming drishti from Kuja can mobilize their progressive, pioneering actions. Also applies to Chandra in Mrigashira - Invaka.

QUOTATION Mrigashiras

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."

Mahadasha bhukti of Chandra, mangala, rahu, and Guru

Chandra-Mangala yoga gives most fruits during Chandra Mahadasha age 28-38 followed by Mangala Mahadasha age 38-45

Edison brought to market a stunning string of patented inventions in the first half of his life from his early 20's until his mid 40's. By the end of his 4th decade Yet, relatively few successes proportional to his large aspirations and huge funding, and by the onset of Rahu Mahadasha he produced no further inventions. Rather, he lived richly from royalties and patents.

Edison maintained an iconic public profile via the respectable, wealthy, intelligent complex of Shani-Shukra-Surya. He delivered speeches and proclamations via Budha-9 also ruled by the authoritative Shani-10-Śaśaka Yoga. But investors began to lose their confidence in his judgment.

Mahadasha of Rahu started Edison's age 45. Rahu enjoys vargottamsha in bhava-6 D-1 AND in the treasury-indicating navamsha-2. Rahu drishti to Shani-Shukra-Surya amplifying the results of 1-4-6-9-10 and funneling those results into bhava-6 opportunities from lawsuits and appropriations.

By the time of the onset of Rahu Mahadasha, mr. Edison had essentially stopped producing new ideas [which were in most cases actually new combinations of other people's ideas] .

Yet mahadasha of Rahu-6 [the most productive location for Rahu generally] brought an era of remarkable material gainfulness.

Edison's repertoire of patents and licenses continued to pay handsome dividends throughout the subsequent Guru mahadasha. Edison continued to work in his laboratory every day, albeit producing little in the way of invention. Despite the health problems associated with Guru in 6th-from-Chandra, professor Guru [as ruler of 8-11] provided continuous income from providential sources.

Ffamed for his role in electrifying American cities, tAE was also a notorious thief.

He blatantly stole the published work of other research engineers, tweaked their diagrams slightly, and rushed his claim to the patent office [across the street from his office] before the original author could get there. Rahu-Tula-6 in Chitra-3 designs, diagrams.

Rahu-6 indicates success in adversarial proceedings . Edison's patents were regularly involved in lawsuits.

[11th-from-Chandra] obtainment, gain

Risk-rewarding Rahu occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically fruitful, revenue-regulating, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra

Rahu Opportunism * Fraud or Legerdemain

Many of his most financially successful licensing conquests began as Edison sprinted to the patent office mere minutes before his competitors.

Rahu-6 often indicates fascinating enemies, which was certainly true of Edison. His [Mūla] Chandra did not care a whit.


One of TAE's most famous enemies was My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla

Tesla never stopped declaring that Edison was a cheat and a fraud who stole others' ideas.

Tesla predicted that TAE's expedient, quick-profits [Rahu] AC current would soon cause more damage than help. Tesla complained vociferously that TAE's Alternating Current had put greed before social benefit.

Tesla was right.

Ketu-12 in 5th-from-Chandra would suggest that Edison was disengaged from his offspring. His eldest son suffered from alcoholism and mental illess, and this son eventually committed suicide.

Edison was said to have been an absentee husband and father [Ketu-5 disregards children] . On a daily basis he went early into his lab, remained there all day. He returned to the home at night, only for food, drink, and marital accommodation. He occasionally disappeared into his lab for days at a time. Both his wives were very young when he married them [Budha yuvati-pati] and both were said to have suffered from his spousal negligence.
