Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Nativities

Purva-bhadra - Aja-eka-pada - Pegasus


For Purvabhadra births of a masculine valence, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome. Masculine births under auspice of Puna, Viśākha, or Purvabhadra may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of priestly teachers and guides.

For those born into the Guru-ruled paradigm of Aja-ekapada, teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues , indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Pegasus. Their purpose is expansion of prosperity = proshtha.

High forehead. The majority of Purvabhadra nativities are wanderers. Universalist perspective. The majority of Purvabhadra are higher dimensional Seva-wanderers who assume guidance roles. Those born into the paradigm of Aja-eka-pada are often excellent dancers who bring understanding of growth patterns via Posture and Dance r.

[Kumbha - Ghata] pada 1-2-3 expresses Guru's rulership of 2-collections, affluence ++ 11-revenues, friendships. Guru-and-Shani are mutually neutral. Pada 1-2-3 births are found in the overlap between Guru's financial-social expansions (2-11) and Shani's ability to bridge the physical-astral worlds (1-12). Pada 1-2-3 are often involved in large-scale social economic network s which have both a public identity and an invisible private reality, such as international finance or government-corporate aid groups. They can also be social scientific theorists and writers on topics of large-scale social behavior. Like all Kumbha-born, their wealth expands via globalist, philosophical Brihaspati.

[Meena - Antya] pada-4 expresses Guru's rulership of 1-embodiment ++ 10-leadership, reputation. Brihaspati activates both Purvabhadra nakshatra ++ Meena rashi, creating a concentrated effect of expansive Saptarishi growth patterns. Pada-4 is less concerned with financial affluence and more attuned to visionary truth. Pada-4 may become leaders in wisdom fields such as divinity, philosophy, spiritual healing, clairsentient understanding, envisioning practices, or ancestor guidance.

Themes of broad scope, theoretical understanding, and visionary imagination may contextualize Ajaekapada's terrestrial experience Applies also to Chandra in Purvabhadra - Pegasus

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 88

" ... high-strung and nervous in temperament .

They are not very strong constitutionally.

They are rather grave and serious in demeanor

  • and are more interested in the discussion of serious topics than in trivial matters.

they belong to the Mental Group and are by no means orthodox ,

  • preferring to arrive at their beliefs through a process of logical reasoning."

Emotional conflicts exacerbated by ambitious Rahu

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations


  • bhava-7 contractual arrangements
  • SSS marriage was traditionally arranged

Additional partners, betrayal of trust in parent-figure

rogesha [Somana-yuti-Rahu] [1]

After leaving his sons fatherless, SSS was initiated as a celibate swami. Yet, many additional sexual partners are documented. They were culled from the swami's flock of young female devotees.

Chandra rules morality, security, and parental protection. [Chandra-Kumbha] [1] rogesha when amplified by [Somana-yuti-Rahu] can suggest betrayal of trust and disregard for common morality.


A charismatic leader, who has built a praiseworthy organization, may feel convinced that one is very exceptional and privileged [Rahu-1]. Compared to one's own importance, the well-being of those in one's care [Chandra] may seem insignificant.

Toward the end of SSS life, nine female devotees filed a lawsuit . The plaintiffs alleged sexual violation of their trust in their guru, who they viewed as a parent figure (Chandra-1). The devotees' complaint harkened back to an earlier betrayal of his sons' trust in their only surviving parent.

SSS never acknowledged wrongdoing.

At its peak, the yoga community had many thousands of participants and an initiated staff of devotees entrained to the guru.

Business Model

After disagreements with his Bharati spiritual brethren during Budha-Chandra bhukti, SSS began a new USA ministry on a business model suitable to the American reality.

SSS pioneered [Kuja] commercial hatha-yoga instruction, using storefront classes [3 shops] and the emerging 1970's audio-video technologies [3 instruction] to promote his Age-of-Kumbha message [3].

Publications, sales-distribution

The guru wrote numerous books by request and invitation, published by his disciples, and marketed using his personal image on the book covers.

SSS also wrote teacher-training curricula which were efficiently produced by the volunteer network of his devotees [Mangala-11, networks]. Production costs were low and distribution [11] was energetic [Kuja]

SSS initiated [Budha-Vṛścika] cells of like-minded, youthful [Budha] American swami celibate adherents.

  • These sibling-like team members taught, ministered, and conducted Hatha Yoga training classes throughout the USA [Budha, instructors]

[Budha in Vṛścika] resides in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking 10th-from-Chandra

  • SSS message and methods were shaped to cater to the restless, media-saturated 1960s-1970 youth.

  • Married at age 21, working in a motorcycle shop to support his family, SSS was widowed-with-children by age 28. The young widow SSS left his young sons with his mother and became a sannyasin. Later he left the ordaining lineage and created a new order in USa, thriving in tumultuous times.

  • Budha-10 brought his evolutionary biography and yoga methods [Budha-yuti-Shukra, balance] into the public eye. Angry about the Vietnam War and dangerously self-medicating, the hippie audience related to SSS promise of inner peace during times of cathartic change.

[passively fixated on ambitiously opportunistic inspirational-dogmatic Rahu-Dhanus-5 children, celebrities, idealists, creative artists, politicians, speculators]


[publishing-explaining Magha-3] [navamsha Ketu-Mithuna]

  • [Ketu-Singha] brightly dissociates from creative performance * fragmented entertainments * meaningless display * eccentric intelligence * peculiar brilliance * not limited by celebrity roles * entitled martyrdom * ignores restriction on political opinion * releases a sparkling crimson cloud of divine charisma into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-7] equably ambivalent toward agreements * absentee advocates * disregards contractual loyalties * disinterested in mutuality * wanders from the middle-balance * empty arrangements * irrelevance of equity * surrenders alliances * abandons the usual covenants * ignores advice * incoherent promises * liberation via surrendered negotiations * unless other graha in 7, may prefer to live free from partners


"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
