The Hierophant

Radical Chandra in Pushya - Sidhya * soothed by lawful customs * protectors of the ethno-social structure * needs dignified orderly habits

= The Best, Most Nourishing

ritual observance, high religion

Feels a need [Chandra] for a secure, recognized institutional leadership position (Pushya, Shani).

Pushyami are steady and reliable personalities, no matter the temporary circumstances which may introduce periods of emotional volatility into their lives. The distinguishing trait is persistence .

Self-grounding and self-determined, they typically meet their need for public approval through accepting (titled or untitled) leadership roles in government and regulatory organizations.

Not an easy emotional placement, but often a dignified one. The native is very serious in one's emotional quest for lawful stability and security.

Pushkarya-Chandra = emotionally motivated to accept institutional governance roles. Pushya's institutional hierarchies may be religious or secular in character. One may aspire to leadership positions in the church, temple, shrine, mandira, gompa, synagogue, or mosque.

Although he celebrated Mass only a few times, Vivaldi maintained his priestly credentials throughout his life. Being a priest helped him to keep a steady teaching job while he created his legendary huge catalogue of Baroque music.

  • United Nations director Kofi Annan = one-world ideology of United Nations

Regulation of the home + home lifestyle. Needs to impose order upon the parenting behaviors, particularly upon the role of the mother and the maternal-child relationship.

A male with Pushya Chandra may take it upon himself to order and orchestrate the details of his wife's maternal-child nurturing behavior, due to his paradigm of belief, which dictates the functions of the Law and its consequences

Depending on influence of other graha, the emotional drive to regulate the home life may be supportive or interfering.

Pushyami-Chandra may express mature guidance Pushan in the home and home culture. Or, if immature, the style can be rather bossy and controlling.

Pomp and ceremony, taking fine foods.

Knowledge and expertise in religious practices, including the rituals of civil government and political entertaining. Emotional need to present a socially dignified appearance [Shani].

  • If the personal behavior contradicts one's own stated principles, One may be perceived as a show-off, parent-pleaser, goody two-shoes, self-serving fraud, or poseur ..

  • Proclivity to hid e behind large, hierarchical organizations [Shani] -- particularly religious facades

Pushyami the Hierophant derives essential emotional connection from performing rituals or giving moral sermons while holding visible rank in big hierarchies.

Profound interest in sacred teachings and commitment to honor the principles of one's faith . Usually grows [Guru] financially privileged via one's own efforts [Shani]. Generously and sincerely offers charitable aid to less fortunater.

Chandra in a Nakshatra of Shani = emotionally oppressed by the social order. Thus one may need to accept social pressure to get married to a conventional life-partner, or social pressure to accept a conventional profession.

The feelings often do not express fully, perhaps for fear of punishment for non-conformism or perhaps due to respect for the reputation of others. There is often a deep respect for the honor of the family, yet frustration with the materialism of that family culture also. The mother may be punitive in character or she may be fearful of public opinion.

It may be convenient to the native to accept the role of hierophant, priest, of high government official in order to reduce the discomfort of public complaint regarding one's emotional preferences.

Pushya is a delicate Nakshatra . Happy life for Pushya requires deep self-knowledge of one's own emotional needs. Pushya natives are born into a bit of a"catch-22" since the punitive parents have shaped this native into a"social performance machine" which is fueled by repressed emotion!

Life is easier if the life-partner is a regulated person, hard-working and sober like Pushyami.

Compatible mates are born with Chandra in the Shani-ruled Nakshatra portions :

Prenatal maternal narrative of Shani and Born into Shani Mahadasha

born into period of yuvati-pati-7 +randhresha-8 from Karkata Chandra. Predisposed to accept material and social leadership responsibilities. Predisposed to manage social organizations, including the sibling group. A responsible child; mother's helper.

It is less benevolent for the Mother that this child is born into the period of randhresha-8 from Chandra. Despite significant later accomplishments, One may suffer from many changes and upheavals in the early emotional life.


Ficus religiosa * New Red Leaves

Superiority Complex

Pushyami's down-side is arrogant superiority toward those perceived as lesser religious beings.

Wants only the highest rank for self and family. Has an experience of polarizing catalysis related to accepting less exalted social rank.

May appear self-righteous or intolerant of others' views.

May apply a conservative [Shani] moralistic [Shani] folk-ways [Old Pathways Karkata] dogmatic rule to adjudicate a situation, when in fact compassion or common sense would be more helpful to those in need.

Craves rank and respect [Shani] via established [Karkata] ritual of the ethnic lineage [Karkata].

  • Deep emotional need to feel recognized for folk-religious rank and public demonstrations of personal piety


Mother has a need to sustain work duties which deliver validation via emotional security.

  • She feels a need to labor on behalf of the homeland and its folk-ways (Karka) including the nation-state.

  • Parenting style gives preference to the needs of the family and the wider society, often leaving the spouse to fend for himself.

  • Having received the emotional influence of Pushkarya via the mother, the native will be comfortable within relationships with parents, caretakers, and womenfolk in general..

Pushya-Chandra + Rahu = a very ambitious mother. She is often the engine that drives her child to highly visible public positions, typically in government or elite roles in religious hierarchies.

Special considerations

  • Vimshottari dasha periods of Budha bhukti

Professor Budha sees Chandra as an enemy graha.

Budha bhukti will be very strongly felt during the human developmental years age 5 to age 12.

Should Chandra occupy a Nakshatra of in the final pada of Shani = Pushya - Sidhya, Anuradha - Maitreya, Uttarabhadra - Andromeda, at the time of birth, it is very likely that the entire period of the child's age 5-12 will occur during the Vimshottari Mahadasha of Budha.

Parents of children with Chandra in a final quarter of a Shani-ruked Nakshatra should take note: you will be raising a highly mentalized, intellectually bright, critical, and argumentative child.

Take note of the bhava and rashi of this child's Budha placement, and plan accordingly to support an inquisitive child who has already (in parallel lives ) mastered the fine art of the critique!

This child will find the holes in all of your arguments.

Budha bhukti are easier to manage and produce improved results after age 32 = the age of maturity for Budha
