Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Public-Figure Examples

Uttarāṣāḍha -Vaishva


For Uttarāṣāḍha births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, 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 is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.

Psychic intelligence

Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Surya + Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns which stimulate creativity and grant charismatic authority. Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic , politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine. A woman born in Pada-1 is likely to teach- preach via her husband. Yet, if she is able to obtain patronage, she may act independently [Surya].

Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic nakshatra-pati Surya. From the Makara indriya-lagna, surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 are mystical and gender-neutral [Shani]. Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet, their purpose is visionary [Surya]. Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. Uttarashadhaka feminine-figures born in Pada-2-3-4 may be spiritual healers. Her emotional dedication to the lifepartner's wellbeing arises from Chandra = yuvati-pati.

Themes of clairsentient vision, lawful transformation , and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha .

Themes of restoration of lost knowledge , gardening, fertility of understanding, wish fulfillment, and conceptual teaching may contextualize Aditya's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Punarvasu

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

" ...a contented nature.

She is one who is interested in forming societies and clubs,

  • and who makes a good manager and organizer.

She is fluent in speech ,

  • forceful and logical in writing.

She is extremely devoted to her husband."

[end quote]

Rahu Mahadasha [age 5.3 until age 23.3] ** 1836-1854

according to the record given by M. Blavatsky to a biographer, HPB spent the years 1848 until 1858 traveling the world.

The Guru-Shani bhukti [Shani lagnesha] combined with the Rahu-gochara-opposition in Kumbha-2-family, occurring in 1858, would have marked the end point of her global travels approximately age 27, with a return to her birthplace in Ukraine, to see her sister.

Speech patterns [Ketu in classroom-2]

ruled by Magha Shani-8 +++ drishti into 2 from Mangala-Shani-Rahu-Budha

  • Observers remarked upon HPB's gravelly voice, along with her verbal wit. User of several languages and a storyteller nonpareil.
  • Rapid speech with a mixture of language accents was, according to some listeners in her audience, the source of occasional incoherence due to the speed and slurring of her speech.
  • Especially of her early s ance years, HPB claimed that her speech suffered from the interference of malefic spirits.

[Ketu-Kumbha] = speech patterns that transmit via subtle electrical networks [Kumbha].

Ketu-2 receives incoming drishti from Rahu + Shani + Mangala + Budha

The narrative [2] of her family history was often embroidered [Rahu] with insinuations [Rahu] of royal pretense Rahu-Singha perhaps in the attempt to imbue her travelogues [2] with a sense of the fabulous [Rahu].

Once the misty veils had dissipated, historians determined that HPB's family consisted of a military father [Kuja] writer mother [Budha] two siblings [Budha] and salient grandparent-figures [Shani].

The Ketu pattern of breaking up, distancing, and incoherence was reflected by HPB's mother's early death, her father's continuing absences due to his profession, and wealthy custodial grandparents who essentially ordered their household serfs to raise the remaining children.

"and now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Paul of Tarsus, Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
