Masculine Public-Figure Examples
Mūla - Nirriti - Alaxmi - Vichruta
For Mula births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, spacious, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Ketu-ruled paradigm of Alaxmi, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, disregard of consequences, and inner listening may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Al-Shaula.
Their purpose is to disintegrate, disconnect, disperse, and deconstruct those phenomena which have become obstacles to greater understanding.
Mula gentlemen are inspiring in their fearlessness . Alaxmi are concerned with absolute principles of conviction, not with material outcomes.
Although apparently optimistic and genial Guru-ruled personalities, Nirriti are constitutionally aligned with destabilizing power vacuums, disintegration of outdated structures, and large-scale disorientation. Pilgrims of wandering spirit, Mula have little regard for boundaries, customs, or consequences. They go easily where angels fear to tread.
Mula has a natural veneer of faith and generosity due to Brihaspati's Benevolence. Often appearing as father-figures, patriarchs, patrons, preachers, and philosophers, Masculine Mula may present as pastoral shepherds who are paternally guiding their lost sheep.
In times of inattentive negligence or mass psychic distress, Shri Ketu's polarity vacuum may suck an enormous degree of power - sometimes, absolute power.
Mūla's outlook often features a liberating mix of ambivalence and apathy. Free from self-doubt, and disinterested in moral conventions, those born in Alaxmi may consciously or unconsciously guide their flocks into states of higher wisdom.
Yet, the sacred must be sacrificed. In a world with few meaningful limits, depravity, destruction, cruelty, and chaos may better suit Ketu's purpose than compassion, understanding, or human love.
Because Alakshmi-born preach their principles while dismissing [Ketu] the material consequences of applying those beliefs, they are generally freed from worry. They are cheerful folk, even in the most dire circumstances. They do not fear death.
When involved in religious or political indoctrination, [Mūla] born may expound an eschatology of annihilation. Unlimited destruction may be the preferred path toward full purgative cycle of regeneration.
Niritti (no-rhythm) may be associated with heart-stopping shock and awe or scorched earth or eradication campaigns that are aimed to destroy the root.
Having usually no fear of death, Mula may nonchalantly engage in self-destructive behavior as well as in evacuation, elimination, or eradication of others - often on a large scale [Guru]. Religious or ideological patronage may be essential to their mission.
Mula gentlemen are found in the worlds of sacred wisdom, inspirational guidance, cults of belief, and radical indoctrination. They may conduct zero-sum operations within military orders, priesthoods, politics, and organized crime.
Mūla-born health may be affected by restless windiness (vata dosha).
Themes of annihilation, apocalypse, extreme chaos followed by absolute peace, and fearless disregard of consequences may contextualize Mūla's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Mūla
QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 86r.
" ... a shrewd and capable character - an organizer,
An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences
The type of person who, while one is still in his presence, holds one spellbound
Extremely clever and capable ."
100 CE Roman copy of an original bust called Hermes Azara made by Lysippos during Alexander's lifetime. Plutarch reports that sculptures by Lysippos were the most accurate.

Macedon-King o-Megos 356-323 BCE Alexander-III * in the year 327 BCE (his age 28) married 16-year-old Roxana * Raoxshna * daughter of a Bactrian Persian officer. Alexander's [7th-from-Chandra-11]being Mesha, his powerfully bright Surya-Simha-9 yuti Shukra would suggest a charming and politically intelligent mate, and also children. Raoxshna produced Alexander's only heir. However, ruler of his 7th-from-Chandra Surya-yuti-Ketu is influenced by Ketu, indicating a degree of dispassion [Ketu] toward the relationship.
Alexander was a bisexual man (which was not controversial in his times). He was provided with a harem of women as expected for a divine-king in his era. Yet despite the number of women available from his age 16-32 (including two additional political marriages) Alexander produced only one child [Shukra-yuti-Ketu] further suggests dispassion toward womenfolk in general.. His primary love relationship was a deep bond with his bodyguard and second-in-command, Hephaestion.
