Masculine Nativities

Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman


For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

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 Denebola.

Uttara-phalguni gentlemen are famously hot-headed. Simha pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of royalty, celebrity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant confidence, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

"a proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride ,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."
