Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Bharani - Yamya

Yamuna - Apa-bharanishe - Varni


For Bharani births of a feminine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, diplomacy, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Yamya, 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, storage, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

Guidance provided by instructors from the civilizations of Apis. Their purpose is acquisition of treasuries, carrying of beautiful objects , and preservation of values across the generations.

Feminine births within a nakshatra of Shukra may carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Nevertheless, energized by action-driven Mangala, these ladies are competitive, and they play to winr.

Burdened Busy Bee

[Suave Shukra] -ruled Bharani women are the Money Gals. Yamuna-born are often found in the worlds of banking, valuation, capital markets, currency-trading, mints and coinage.

Depending upon Shukra's scope, Yamya-born may be involved in the financial aspect of any form of brokerage and deal-making, including real-estate. They may guide public fiscal affairs. Connoisseurs of pricing and aggressive bargainers, they vigorously seek acquisition of luxuries and precious objects. In addition to their financial abilities, their intuitive understanding of sound-and-color values, often leads to careers in music and arts.

The harmonious arrangements of Apa-bharanishe may be lovely even while they vigorously compete for dominance. Their expertise in the fields of preservation, containment, and collecting may extend to wines, perfumes, fine textiles, works of art and design, and any commodity which may capitalize or increase in value. Like all Shukra-governed births, Yameza-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

Themes of competitive acquisition, precious sounds and song, and investment in cherished values may contextualize Bharani's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Bharani.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 79

" ...a rather quarrelsome and treacherous nature.

She will have a tendency towards wicked, vicious and envious thoughts

  • regarding other women, particularly.

to her husband and friends,

  • she will be arrogant and overbearing.

Underneath it all

  • she is cold, shrewd, and calculating."
