Feminine Public-Figure Examples
Pūrvāṣāḍhā - Apah
Asadhash - Pooraadam - Purvasharha - Ambudaiva
For Pūrvāṣāḍhā births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Ambudaiva, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies , and music, may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Sinnuntu. Their purpose is expansion of inspirational beauty and melodious sound.
Inspirational diplomatic grace
Feminine births in Pūrvāṣāḍhā carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Pūrvāṣāḍhā ladies are often dramatists, musicians, and entertainers. Often, they sing beautifully and play stringed instruments. They love to travel and serve as a muse to creative partners.
Feminine births in Asadhash tend to benefit from the sweetness and relationship orientation of Shukra. In addition to Shukra endowments in diplomacy, beauty, and finance, they may be splendid singers, theatrical designers, and graceful fashion models. Pūrvāṣāḍhā are often lyricists and poets, with a gift for playing many instruments. Their tonal arrangements may appeal to everyday folks. These ladies are self-indulgent and pure of heart.
Brihaspati represents their typically generous husbands and their characteristic faith. Typically, apah-born are attracted to sacred doctrine. Guru-influenced humanism and compassion often expands the range of inspirational roles that benefit women, musicians, and creative artists. Their complexion may feature a Guru-golden glow.
Like all Shukra-governed births, Apah-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Ambudaiva's true purpose is inspirational guidance which leads to natural states of balance and pleasure. Yet, Shukra's sweet-seeking may also attract the false balance of intoxication.
Themes of generous arrangements, affluence, favor, harmony, blessing, beauty, artistry, and luxurious indulgence may contextualize Apah's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Pūrvāṣāḍhā - Apah
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 99
" Lovely eyes set in a beautiful face,
She is also to be distinguished by the small well-proportioned feet.
She has a generous positive character
and should be successful in some occupation
She is apt to have been born in an influential family." [end quote]

CAREER - SURYA
Surya-yuti-Shukra = entertainment, celebrity relationships, women's fashion display, singing
Surya rules 9-high celebrity, contains Budha-Simha
Surya rules rules 6th-from-Chandra
WH persona had a notable community focus [Surya-11].
She self-expressed [Surya] vibrantly in larger groups such as church choirs.
[Surya Mahadasha] [age 43.6 until decease age 48]
FATHER - Manager
[regulatory-rankinge Aśleṣa-2] Dad military career
Dad was originally a military officer, Surya-Karkata ++ Shani mutual-exchange-Surya
When the talent of his wife and daughter began to ascend, Dad became the official family career manager .
He managed the gospel-and-nightclub singing career of WH's legendary mother, Cissy Houston. When WH became an adult, her Dad worked as WH's career manager until his retirement.
Supervising payment contracts, he and his deputies were responsible for ensuring that brilliant musical and artistic performances of his wife and daughter could earn top dollar.
Chandra-Surya share a 5/9 angle suggesting that, despite their 1991 divorce when WH was 27] there was affinity between mother-and-father. Surya rules emotionally adversarial 6th-from-Chandra, so that a balanced parental marriage is factored out of the nativity according to the Learning Plan. Yet, mom and dad maintained a mutually beneficial professional relationship.
Shani mutual-drishti Surya
permanent tension between entitlement vs. obligation
Shani is both vidya-pati and rogesha. Shani's drishti into Surya both professionalizes the entertainment world and introduces a perpetual inflow of jealousy, addiction, and abuse into the Surya sphere.
Dad's military experience provided a more orderly approach to these challenges, but predatory agents of rogesha Shani continued to lurk.
matrikaraka [mother] * garha-karaka [village]
[mysterious-initiatory randhresha for Dhanus - Haya indriya-lagna]

CAREER - CHANDRA
[folk reputation 10th-from-Chandra = uniquely individualized, physically kinetic, embodied, inspirational optimistic dogmatic Dhanus-1]
contains a collapsing-Ketu
Camouflaged professional exhaustion
In the years preceding WH tragic 2012 suicide, the location of Ketu in 10th-from-Chandra was perplexing to observers. Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4 is a notably powerful position for The Annihilator. Yet, the power of any Vrischika-pada is the power of ccamouflage.
External appearances would not have confirmed the usual implications of Evacuator Ketu holding the public-recognition, familiar-face position.
Ketu in 10th-from-Soma typically signifies a spiritual figure, a mystic or renunciate, a person demonstrating surrender or annihilation, or [in the worst case] an astrologer.
Ketu-4 could suggest absentee parents, and disinterest in schooling. Ketu-4 could show lack of safety limits within the household, that might make it easier for predators to enter.
The red flag of Ketu is no-show, absenteeism, and cancellation. WH 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 meaning of Ketu in 10th-from-Chandra was ultimately provided by WH tragic suicide, which left behind a cherished daughter. As the years have rolled by, WH reputation is less framed by a brilliant artistic career - but rather by the circumstances of her mortal exit and final relief. KETU.
Mom = the popular singer Cissy Houston.
Chandra-yuti-Guru combines the rulers of 5 + 7 + 11
Mom had several styles [Guru] ranging from devotional church music to nightclub lyrics.
Chandra-yuti-Guru = multiple mother figures
Many of mom's family-and-friends had maternal roles in WH life. WH's many mothers supported the talented young girl as she rose through the ranks. Within the notoriously exploitive entertainment industry, WH's many-mothers wisely [Guru] sheltered and protected WH.
[Shani in Bhava-5] intake by Chandra
++ Shani drishti intake by Surya
both parents adhered to standards of social decorum. WH identity as a gay woman was notoriously suppressed by both parents, who feared social judgment.
MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
[7th-from-Chandra-7] = Lifepartnership-1-of-1
WH endured an abusive marriage criticizing, competitive, and dominating peer [Mangala] . In addition, he contested her sexual identity [Kuja].

[contemplative understanding of partnership]
[multiple marriages with visionary spouses]
[networking-revenues Revatī-3] [navamsha Guru-Kumbha]
[Guru-yuti-Chandra] = combined rulers of 4 + 7 + 11
OUTCOMES - GURU
parental, habitual [Guru in bhava-7] [Guru-yuti-Chandra-Revati] rules
CAREER - GURU
WH musical- dramatic performances appealed emotionally to a broad and diverse [Somana-yuti-Guru] range of people. Guru-Meena = diversity with a doctrinal quality. WH musical style was admired by fans young and old, rich and poor, black and white, men and women.
[Guru in bhava-7] rules Ketu-4 in the emotionally dignified , familiar-face, visibility-seeking Dhanus-4 10th-from-Chandra.
HUSBAND - GURU
Guru-Meena  suggests that the marriage partners were true peers. Mutual drishti between Guru-and-Mangala can produce fertility along with a great amount of kinetic energy.
Chandra-yuti-Guru expands the scope and number of partnerships. Many mothers, and many core relationships with caretakers.

Shani mutual-drishti Surya
a permanent tension between entitlement vs. obligation
[Shani in Bhava-5] is a compromised position, no matter how artistically gifted one may be. In Surya's svabhava, matters of romance, gambling, children, and creative genius must be organized, lawful, and socially approved.
Privacy-seeking Surya rules 12 while socially responsible Shani rules 6, and their fraught territories are constantly activated in a polarized tug-of-war. There is no rest.

OUTCOMES - RAHU
[Rahu in bhava-10] has a super-power
= the ability to symbolic a nation, an institution, a corporation, an empire.
If Rahu's ruler is fragile, Shri Rahu can be expected to exhibit a fabulous rise to the top, followed by a tragic fall to the bottom.
At the peak  of her career, WH was called in the entertainment industry a /cross-over artist/
Her high-profile fashion-and-entertainment package easily crossed [Rahu] most of the race-and-class boundaries of the American pop-culture audience [Mithuna, audience].
As a public symbol, WH was praised for a commercially viable [Mithuna] mixed sacred-and-secular music, black-and-white fashion styles, and cultural-identity boundaries.

Ultimately, WH gained highest repute for her disembodiment in 4 = end-of-things
Her 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
