Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Jyeṣṭha - Kita - Thrikketta


For Jyeṣṭhā births of a feminine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, castmates, classmates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeṣṭhā gentlewomen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and energetic communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority often leading to impatience with those less quick-witted .

Articulate and pro-active in their messaging style, these women are natural political activists. ज्येष्ठा are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from autobiography to committee reports. Kita-born ladies find a ready audience on topics of a hidden, eruptive, undisclosed, or forbidden nature. Jyeṣṭhā women are also natural trauma healers, investigative journalists, forensic scientists, and detectives.

Ketta-born ladies wield a penetrating ability to explain complex human sexual and psychological narratives. They are often found in powerful messaging roles, where secret information is revealed by a skillful shifting of the interpretive lens.

Due to nakshatra-pati Bantering Budha, the skills of śakradaivata include all of the commercial fields plus psychotherapy and recovery work, self-help writing, and training of healers. Thriketta-born feminines may also be found in the verbal realms of transformative criticism and promotion of mystical renewal.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeṣṭhā's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeṣṭha - Antares

QUOTATION: Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

" ...independent, self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family,

she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her

  • and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

She is carefully canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life, occupy a very influential position

and be greatly respected."

Budha-Budha svabhukti through Budha-Surya bhukti

  • OW reports an era of success in school but persistent sexual abuse from male relatives.

randhresha-8 Budha = secret sexuality in bhava-3 = relatives. Rahu in this cluster gives destruction of culture boundaries. Budha yuti karmesha-10 Surya = attempts to use argument as a tool to maintain respectable reputation.

  • rogesha-6 Mangala + nichha Chandra = exploitation. Yes it is a wealth-producing Chandra-Mangala yoga but the emotional conditions of caretakers [Chandra] are aggressively [Kuja] exploitive as well.

Stoic Shani activates 3-4 from Jyeṣṭha lagna, and Shani activates 3-4 from Anuradha Chandra

After being birthed in the American South by a teenage unwed mother who soon left for the North, Winfrey's spent the first six years of life on the impoverished Mississippi farm of her maternal grandparents. Winfrey credits her grandmother's faith in Oprah's ability for much of her adult self-confidence. That confidence allowed Winfrey to cross many barriers and accomplish her goals.

Maternal grandmother = 4th from Chandra = Kumbha bhava-4 ruled by Shani = home, basic education, emotional security. Professor Shani operates in social invisible contexts when He resides in bhava-12.

Yet, in His [uchcha]-amsha where social justice and equitable terms of contract remain His highest duty, Shani remains highly structured. Shani is strictly lawful, and a bit imprisoning perhaps in Vyaya bhava.

As bandesha-4 in 10th from 4th, Shani representing Grandmother is a highly stabilizing factor; Yet, also Shani-12 indicates scarcity conditions, dark ignorance or superstition, and fear of the invisible. Winfrey also describes a harsh and what would now be considered abusive level of punishment, along with severe poverty, in her early years.

Shani [uchcha] amza rules 3-4 indicating every variety of advertising (3), marketing, sales, and business communication skills. Some loss of formal education through strong focus on pragmatic work skills in the communications industry (3)

[uchcha] Shani in bhava-12 for extraordinary discipline and commitment to social justice in communications media (3) and personal security (4)

chalakaraka Rahu = self-elevating desire to be recognized and privileged as a writer or messenger, missionary, envoy, apostle, who delivers important instructions and announcements.

Rahu in bhava-3 gives extraordinary desire for success in commerce, communications media May be a taboo-breaker in matters of communication and signaling.

Budha-Rahu bhukti = Miss Black Tennessee pageant, showcasing Winfrey's remarkable poise and beauty in the bright lights of center-stage (Rahu-Surya) position.

  • [Rahu in bhava-3] + Shukra + karmesha-10 Surya visibility + Vriddhi-pati-11 Budha (gains and goals).

  • Rahu enables the astonishingly profitable and achievement-oriented [uchcha] Shani in bhava-11 for global networks

  • End of TV contract (age 57)

[Collapsing unshackling Ketu]

kavandha-karaka [headless] * chidra-karaka [gaping] * vasana-karaka [vacuum]

[energizing-identifying lagnesha co-ruler for Vṛścika indriya- lagna]

[disinterested in routine cultural beliefs]

[although little interested in familiar doctrines, there is no barrier to preaching odd philosophies]

[father-figure may be wandering farmer, fisherman, police, fencebuilder][father often absent or eccentric when at home]

[passively fixated on ambitiously ministering-assisting Rahu in Partha-3 sibling-cousins, secretaries, team-mates, castmates, classmates, co-workers, neighbors]


[ancestral -rhythmic Punarvasu-4] [navamsha Ketu-Karkata] intuitively disregarding outdated limits on caretaking, sense-of-place, cultural belonging

  • [Ketu-Karkata] calmly dissociates from foundational habits * surrenders material security * placidly empty shelters * disregards conventional caretaking * not limited by customary routines * patriotic martyr * ignores restriction on farming-and-fishing * abandons owned-stewarded property * forgives the ancestors * releases a soothing pink cloud of ancient rhythms into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-9] disinterested in fixed credenda * wandering worldview *disengaged from faith doctrine * disregards theory * liberating philosophy * irrelevance of patriarchal dogma * ambivalence toward conventional convictions * spacey father * weird beliefs * empty public guidance * forsaken by preceptors * ignores the ordinary understandings * incoherent ideology * unless other graha in 9, may prefer to live free from father-figures


chidrakaraka Ketu= self-deprecating ambivalence toward patriarchal religion. Disregards orthodox piety. Generally neutral toward guru-father-priest figures. Witness Viewpoint gives cosmological neutrality in religious philosophy.

Ketu-bhukti evoke wandering, weak boundaries , and disconnected uncertainty

  • nichha Chandra + Kuja in tanu bhava = highly empowered Chandra-Mangala dhana yoga (Winfrey will eventually become the richest woman in USA)

Ketu accepts drishti from Rahu, Shukra, Budha, Surya and Shani

  • Ketu = usually a scattering force. In a rare instance for Winfrey's nativity, Ketu gets motivation to get public visibility from Surya, energy and articulation to communication from Budha, beauty and relationship concerns from Shukra, and personal discipline with a powerful work ethic from the professionalizing 10th drishti of structuring [uchcha] amza Shani.

  • The prognosis for father, which would normally be challenging due to Ketu-9 while Dharmesha-9 Chandra occupies Jyeṣṭha -Kita , improves a great deal because of all this supporting, enlivening drishti upon the chidrakaraka.

  • Ketu + bhukti of vikrama-pati-3-bandesha-4 [uchcha] Shani = move (vikrama-pati-3, 12th from 4th = loss of roots) to Chicago television journalism job (3)

  • During the hard-working and disciplined Shani bhukti, Winfrey produces an almost immediate ratings improvement for the failing TV talk-show into which she was hired. She begins to receive market share from the competition.

  • Ketu+ randhresha-8 /Vriddhi-pati-11 Budha bhukti = meets and exceeds projected performance goals. The confessional style of self-revealing secrets (8), public discussion of personal trauma especially sexual invasion (8) and the psychological healing goals of this intensely penetrating style of self-disclosure become the trademarks of Winfrey's forthcoming spectacular success.
