Also consider these musical performers who have Revati radical lagna

  • musician, balladeer Sheryl Crow

  • balladeer, dramatist Bette Midler

  • musician, balladeer Stevie Nicks " Fleetwood Mac"

Revati the Shepherd loves children, defends the powerless, is quite verbal, often gifted in handcraft such as musical or artistic production, and possessed of a lovely voice with which to call the flocks.

A bit of a diva or high-maintenance personality

usually due to their high-strung Budha-engine sense of divine mission to guide the masses toward a more wise, more conscious future.

  • TV journalist, essayist William F. Buckley

When Revati Chandra is well-supported, one will be properly equipped to complete the mission of providing guidance via modeling of gesture and vocal expression .

One's sense of having been specially chosen is generally well acknowledged as there is often some evidence of Revatī-Chandra's genuine ability to guide others. Despite their potentially overbearing diva qualities, their guidance offerings are accepted.

Revati displays evidence of shepherding and guidance works, especially defense of the weak.

All of Revati nakshatra resides within the final 13:20 degree portion of Meena - Antya.

  • Budha [the Nakshatra lord] and Guru [the rashi lord] enjoy a complex planetary relationship.

  • In addition, the three Nakshatra of Budha all suffer somewhat from Budha's animosity toward His natural father, the Moon.

Budha sees wise teacher Guru as a neutral party; however Guru the bringer of knowledge is annoyed by Budha's immature mentalism and superficial, conversational approach to information. Guru dislikes Budha as an enemy.

The Nakshatra of Budha are also fundamentally hostile places for Chandra, who gets battered by the relentless thinking, formulating, arguing and discussing of Professor Budha .

From this odd situation, Revatika gets some of its odd qualities. one is filled with the Meena spirit of generosity, open-mindedness, and compassionate love. Under the guidance of Pashupati, there can be an expansive, inclusive love for animals and children. The common people are ferried across that death-bridge from the living dream into the greater life-awareness in the same boats used by the monied elite. Revatika does not discriminate by class or caste.

And yet, Bantering Budha has a tendency to reduce Guru's grand knowledge into merely functional, conversational information. Transcendent religious truths are boiled down into social program and policy. The mission of a great soul is drained by the petty chat of attending meetings, reading reports, and following instructions.

Further, Budha reduces Chandra's profoundly parental caring and sheltering behaviors to a mere psychological narrative; a discourse upon intuitive perception; of a scientific study of needs and feelingsr.

Emotional Environment (nakshatra) is verbalized:

Poetry, literature, song

dramatic acting

  • drama-activist Marlon Brando

  • drama-activist Jane Wyman

  • drama-activist Lynn Redgrave

  • Mighty Heart 1975- drama-activist Angelina Jolie + [Guru-yuti-Mangala]

In the end, similar to placements like Budha-Dhanus /Meena or Guru-Mithuna /Kanya, Revatika is beautifully ineffective .

The small narrative Budha-Mind constrains and distracts the large visionary Guru-Mind. Chandra itself, moved helter-skelter by the conflicted Guru-Budha pair, has no opportunity to stay in one place, laying deep roots, learning to live properly in the divine cycles and cooperate with the spirits of a land.

Energy is expended in frequent short-term travel . one is gifted in the verbal and literary arts [Budha]; a few works of fine art may be produced if Budha is influenced by Shukra. Through their expansive compassion, Revati are naturally dedicated to the betterment of children's circumstances. Some lucky children are benefitted.

Overall, a great vision may go unfulfilled due to the downward pull of petty administrative and high-frequency cycles of hyper-mentalized tasks. Go here, do this, go there, do that. Much movement for little purpose, in the end.

one lives well and dies well, delighted in the details of each glorious, fruitful dayr.

Signal-sender and messenger [Budha], articulator, pointer toward the Other Side, ferryman and conductor

  • shows the way to travel the path away from fleshly concerns,

  • leads across the Bridge of Dissolution, returning to the astral world.

Unfortunately, the dissolution of attachment can be either spiritual (nice) or moral (not so nice) or physiological (drugs) depending on the consciousness of one .

Great shepherd-like healers, with lifelong love of dreams, music and children.

  • Extraordinary creativity and pro-creativity.

  • Global all-one embrace of intuitive connectedness.

  • Developers and articulators of imaginary narrative which shows the way (Pushan) into the intuitive, symbol-signal, astral realm.

Deep sense of Destiny.

offers intuitive guidance to others, along the path of truth. Strong and clear inner voice, directing one along the path toward unification with the Divine.

Disturbance of the inner voice may cause radical disorientation. Inner sensing device is extremely delicate. Best to remain in the company of children, animals, and other intuitively attuned beings. Otherwise one's sensitive inner " GPS" can be deranged by hostile invasion.

Delicate aura needs to be protected.

  • If given the security and protection that their sensitive equipment requires, will produce works of remarkable communicative creativity which provide emotional upliftment, encouragement, and joy to those following Pushanya along the path toward Divine realization.

It may not be clear that the creative expressions of Revati = providing specific spiritual signaling for an attuned group of followers coming up the path behind oneself.

  • But that it precisely their shepherding role in the cosmos.

Caring, emotionally responsible, committed to wholeness, redemption, reunion, reintegration, and restitution after wrongdoing.

Pushan the Conductor

Guru and Budha have a somewhat adversarial relationship because they both compete for the mental attention.

  • Guru wants to call one's attention to philosophy and inclusive reality, However, budha wants to call the attention to the minutia of daily life and worldly business.

  • Naturally Guru dislikes Budha the Teenager who has no view of the long-term future

  • However, budha simply disregards Wise Teacher Guru

  • therefore Budha is not bothered.

As a result one is Typically, Rather lucky , able to move freely from one mental engagement to the next, like a monkey with long agile arms swinging from one tree branch to the next.

Revati are typically unconcerned with matters of the distant past, and although capable short-term planners due to the Budha influence Revati = not worried or even much aware of broader philosophical issues.

  • As always with the impressionable Budha -ruled nakshatra, Budha's rashi lord and bhava lord will determine the behavioral outcome.

  • As a general ruled, Revati = "very nice, but not very deep" .

Pashupati (Shiva) the lord of animals calls attention to the freedom, alacrity, and grace of animal movement from one small concern to the next. Animals are blessed by a lack of engagement with the larger truths of existence. Animals are focused on the minutia of their immediate environment [Budha] and seem to be protected by God from the suffering caused by complex human problems.

Pushan = the ferryman, yearning to cross over, shooting in great curves like a star, a great arch, a rainbow, or a bridge, or the suckers of a wide-spreading plant.

Guidance issues in childhood

Often emotionally damaged in childhood through failure of moral guidance from their own trusted leaders - particularly the father . However, what is lacking from father may be supplied by grandfather [Guru].

The experience of betrayal through lack of moral character in the childhood guide (father or father-figure; may also be a failed spiritual teacher) will remind the Revatī-born of the lifelong human need for connection and redemption through forgiveness.

  • Deep emotional need for reconnection and reunion.

Prenatal epoch maternal narrative and Born into Budha Mahadasha

A central structural challenge to the healthy development of the emotional personality which faces the Jyeṣṭha birth = one will be born into the period of Budha.

Budha ruling 4th and 7th from Meena Chandra suffers from kendra adhipati dosha, Budha does not enjoy the rulership of any trine angle.

bandesha-4 +yuvati-pati-7 Budha suggests that the mother [Chandra] is not fully available to the child emotionally during the critical early years.

Budha is an enemy of Chandra. as ruler of 4th-from Chandra, Budha bhukti suggests Mother's emotional ungroundedness and distraction due to excessive mentalizing of the matters of the home and household. Mother is often over-involved in messaging, conversations, sales-business meetings, or writing-publishing projects while the child is young.

Budha as ruler of 7th-from Budha suggests incomplete emotional availability to the child due to Mother's mentalization of a relationship narrative in which mental traffic consumes too much of her life force energy, which ideally should ideally have been directed toward nurturing the child.

This is the basis of Revati's reputation as a Diva who is forever seeking a validating embrace for their flamboyant if generous and compassionate behavior. Like Aśleṣa and Jyestha, Chandra-Revati is pre-incarnationally planned locked into a pattern of trying to get the soothing and holding reassurance that young children naturally need, and without which they feel socially insecure regardless of their spiritual-guidance, world-healing, and charitable [Meena] achievements.

Mother and Mother-Figure

Mother has a need for manual and mental communications which deliver validation via charitable generosity .

  • She may place charity above honesty in her quest to guide others [Guru].

  • May be the diva mother or grandmother who demands that the children missionize others.

Spiritual director of this section of the Learning Pathway

Revatika Chandra Fears
  • getting lost on the way home,
  • missing the connection,
  • losing the path, losing sight of the group,
  • feeling confusion from mixed signals or no signal,
  • criss-cross paths on a network
  • being misled or betrayed

Navamsha Chandra in D-9 Revati

psychic mirroring function o f intimate relationships

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Revatika behavior.

The partner seems loving, responsible, protective and nourishing of families and children .

The partner may seem spacey, overly intuitive, perhaps in denial about the amount of confusion and false information in the world. On the plus side, the partner - if adequately protected from psychic interference - is a reliable guide to one's deepest certainty along the spiritual path.

  • This partner is perhaps not a sharp tactical soldier in the war on material reality.

  • Yet Revatī-Chandra's partner does evoke a deep inner calling and one produces accurate travelers guide information on the authentic ways and means toward returning to the Divine Source.

Under stress, Revatī-Chandra may retreat into impractical, ineffective, visionary, or magical childlike state of mind , insisting that everything is connected and whole and that conflict is imaginary. An ult view of the same problem might not be so idealistic, and would certainly be more pragmatic .

May throw money at problems using wealth as a balm when rational problem-solving processes break down.
