Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Kṛttikā - Pleyades

Agneya - Riksya - Karthika - Alcyone


For Krittika 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.

For those born into the splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, 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 provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.

Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born ladies are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance.. Riksya-born are brightly idealistic + self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius.

Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and uniquely charismatic figures. Feminine births in pada-1 are often distinguished by an athletic figure and personal independence

[Vrishabha - Urisha] -pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Shukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatra-pati Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of uniquely central, creative roles.

They often serve as independent evaluators within the artistic and financial worlds, in the music industry, dealing with wines + perfumes, and in all aspects of tangible beauty. Depending on [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward organizational leadership positions.

Themes of valuation, individual intelligence, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Kṛttikā - Pleyades


from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

" ... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds, and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please."

[end quote]

[accidental death, randomness] occupies [exploring-disguising Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4] inspirational mysteries

Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4 is a notably powerful position for Ketu the Annihilator. The power of any Vṛścika-pada is the power of non-disclosure.

In the years preceding WEH tragic 2012 suicide by drowning, the odd location of Ketu in 10th-from-Chandra was perplexing to observers.

External public appearances [10] would not have confirmed WEH ongoing energetic erosion typical of Evacuator Ketu.

Collapsing Ketu in 10th-from-Soma typically signifies a spiritually detached figure, amystical recluse or renunciate, aperson demonstrating surrender or annihilation, or [in the worst case] an astrologer.

  • However, an exhausted WEH had been absent [Ketu] from the public venue for some time.

The site of WEH victimization was not visible to outsiders.

The self-medication and marital abuse that slowly unraveled her celebrated performance genius was bhava-4 Simha = 6th-from-Chandra = the home. Her own parents, her parenting, her foundational security, and her safety within her own household became the site of emotional battering.

Simha = also 6th-navamsha, and ruler Surya implicates the father-figures in management roles.

  • It was only with onset of the Surya Mahadasha that the depth of suffering was a little displayed. The public audience [Simha display] learned of an agonizing divorce [6] culminating years of severe marital abuse. Even for this spectacular entertainer, earning mega-millions in artistic contracts, the issue of unsafe conditions in the home began to emerge.


[Ketu-Dhanus] [8] occupies 10th-from-Chandra = camouflaged professional exhaustion

  • socially recognized symbol [10 icons] of ungrounded faith, of annihilation of doctrine, of dissolution of principled beliefs

Ultimately, wEH gained highest familiar repute 10th-from-Chandra. for her unexpected [8] disembodiment [Ketu] = end-of-things

  • WEH had been in the public eye since her career began, age 14.
  • Once into her 30's, wEH exhaustion and reluctance to continue performing b became socially visible.

The red flag of Ketu is no-show, absenteeism, and cancellation. WEH had developed a pattern of erratic and dissociative professional behaviors [Ketu 10th-amsha] Excessive cancelled performances spurred lawsuits and peer concern. Despite frequent time-off, the cause was opined to be exhaustion [Ketu].

Confirmation of the hidden meaning of Ketu-8 in 10th-from-Chandra was ultimately provided by WEH tragic suicide, which left behind a cherished daughter.

As the years have rolled by, wEH reputation is less framed by a brilliant artistic career - but rather by the circumstances of her mortal exit and final relief, combined with the subsequent suicide of her only child, her daughter.

WEH widely grieved death by drowning while drug-numbed, under stress from pressured re-entrance into a career she had wished to exit [Ketu], produced an emotionally evocative image of despair, incoherent tragedy, hopeless failure, and martyrdom to unsustainable public expectations [10]
