Even if uneducated the will be skilled garland makers, jewellery, decorating, entertaining and offering alternative services in the markets place like tarot, magic, illusion and astrology. Services or some kind of labour work that takes a special combination of skill and imagination; or some kind of specialised technical knowledge They might like to source their materials through the community, working directly with producers and growers. 

Vishnu – Sustaining – Maintaining – Organising principle: Focus is to maintain order in the universe, in society and life. Their focus is to maintain what is here and keep things going. It primarily does this through organisation, management, and skilled use of available resources.

Pitta: Fire + Water = Hot, oily, light, sharp, rough

  • Vibrant, successful, aggressive
  • Disturbed by sour (Venus), pungent (Sun)
  • Pacified by bitter (Mars) & sweet (Jupiter)

Kama: They are motivated to fulfil their hopes & desires; to enjoy life and love, making friends and social connections, and to indulge in the pleasures of life. Planets that have some natural social talent will do well here while the others will show their awkwardness for easy enjoyment.

Mridu – Soft / Mild: Gentle like a like a pleasing picture; they like to relax and enjoy themselves without causing any trouble. Chitra can be flirty and fun, they like to have. Good time and get attention. They like to go out and have a good time: romance, ceremonial events, weddings and other things that keeps them active. Of course this goes along with they love for craft making and decorating. In many ways they just want to bring beauty into this world Mrigasira, Anuradha, Revati are the other Nakshatras that share this temperament.

Active: Planets here will actively pursue their interests. Active planets like Mars and Sun will have their activity enhanced. If afflicted here it can make a person very aggressive and angry.  More passive planets will struggle in an active field a little bit like. The moon here can make an active mind, but we need active and alert minds to nourish and protect the weak. Saturn will be like putting an old man jogging; he can still do well, but may follow the “slow-and-steady-wins-the-race” mantra

Tamasic: Activities take part on the gross physical plane: dark, depressed, dull, inert activities that obscure reality and keep us in the dark. Some kind of gross suffering is usually felt here and there’s a lazy sort of laissez-faire sort of laziness of lethargy. The energy here typically pulls a person down as it represents neither change or purity. There is typically some suffering and darkness of mind experienced here. Tamasic has no nutrients and the prana is not moving; it’s stale or dead. This nakshatra is fully tamasic.

Fire: rises up, expands, illuminates, transformers burns, cooks, assimilates

      • Fire + Air = cooperation / Earth + Water = Cooperation / Space cooperates with all. 
      • Earth does not cooperate with Fire and impedes Air
      • Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire

Triyanga Mukha – Facing Straight Ahead (Level): This is a level-headed and forward looking position. It’s good for mundane, everyday tasks that allows us to prepare for the future. This nakshatra promotes an honest, realistic assessment. It marks a good time to level with others or yourself, to ensure that the playfield and the ground are all level. It can be a good time to start surveying, building, laying pipe, or sticking a level on anything. Mercury and Venus share this perspective. Ashwini, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Anuradha, Jyeshta and Revati are all forward looking.

Sage Kratu: “The one who inspires.” An aspirant son of Brahma; born of his hand. Married to Kriya, daughter of Kardama in his first life. By blessing of Lord Shiva he had 60 000 children in his first life. The all became hermits called Balakhilyas. They are said to be a species of human no bigger than the joint of the thumb. 

In his second life he was born from Sage Bhṛgu and a Deva; he’s said to be seated in Bhuva loka. He became an unmarried Sanyas; adopting only the son of sage Agastya.

Kratu was present at the birth-celebration of Arjuna & Skanda. He went to visit Bhīṣma when he was lying on the bed of arrows awaiting death. It was Sage Kratu who convinced Sage Parashara to cease his the Raksasa Sattra (a sacrificial fire that was killing the Rakshasas like moths to a flame).

Kratu was in the company of Bharata when he recited the Naaṭya Veda “tell us about the character of the god who appears in the Pūrvaraṅga (preliminaries: just before a theatre performance is to begin)? Why is music applied there? What purpose does it serve? What god is pleased with this, and what does he do on being pleased? Why does the Director being himself clean, perform ablution again on the stage? How, O sir, is the drama has been dropped down to the earth from heaven? Why have your descendants come to be known as Shudras?” Natya Shastra is the shastra of performing arts, outlining the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya). Naṭya refers generally to theatrics, drama, dance, music. He is also said to be the author of a Dharma Shastras: Parashara Smrti & Shudra Dharma Tattva.

Kratu is the name of a Pratyeka Buddha mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Manjushreemulakalpa: one of the largest Kriya Tantras devoted to Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of wisdom which is concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism.

Female Tiger (pairs with Vaishakha): Strong sexual desires. Chitra is also a kama nakshatra focused on fulfilling desires

Bilva – Bael: Home of Laxmi. Shiva is fond of bael and its often used in worship and for ceremonial purposes.  One of Shiva’s names is “Bilvadanda, the Staff of Bilva.” The fruit is known as Shiphala, the fruit of Sri, the goddess Laxmi. The twigs are often used for kindling for starting the holy fire. Bilva leaves cool and refresh the heated deity of the lingam. The three leave symbolise creation, preservation and destruction; Satwa, rajas, tamas, as well as the three eyes of lord Shiva. 

There are some different stories about the origins of the Bilva tree. As source of solar power: 

1) “The Gods thought of making storage for yonder Sun who did not shine; they offered a white cow to Surya, thereby they restored his brilliance. The Bilva tree was born at the very reappearance of yonder Sun.” 

Or as an amalgamation of the faces of Devi:

 2) “One day while Parvati was resting some drops of sweat fell from her forehead on the mountain Mandara, from which grew the bel tree, Girija lives on the root of the tree, Maheswari on its shoulder, Dukshayani on its branches, Parvati among its leaves, Katyayani in its fruit, Gaori in its flowers while in thorns the numerous Saktis find a home. It is also believed that Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, also lives in the bel tree.”

Each part of the bilva has a special qualities that can be uses medicinally. The fruit is excellent for both diarrhoea (ripe fruit) or constipation (unripe fruit) and is often used in pickles. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory to release pain but also to cut the heat of a hot summer. Modern researchers are mostly interested in the anti-diabetic properties. Bilva seems to increase the production of insulin to help break down sugars. Numerous skin diseases can be treated with bilva, as can many typical female problems. 

Ayurveda classifies bilva as pungent, bitter & astringent; absorbent, unctuous, & sharp. It’s potency is considered sharp and the post digestive effect is pungent. 

Special Considerations

      • Venus debilitated 27º Virgo.
      • Saturn exalted in the first 5ºs of Libra. 

Auspicious activities

The Moon’s transit here is a good day to keep things soft and find some gentle relaxing peaceful activities. All the typically Chitra activities like craftmaking, decorating, keeping things maintained can be successful. And of course it can be great for a day at the pub, going shopping, taking a walk in the park, or just chilling out somewhere. It can be good for a little TLC, some gentle healing, shanti yoga, an art class, or just watching a movie. Nothing too stressful or dynamic, just a nice peaceful day.

Gods & Symbols of Chitra

Tvatar / Vishwakarma: 

“Even in the womb Lord Tvastar, the vivifier, showing all forms, made consorts for us.”

The celestial architect, craftsman and master of magic who made many of the weapons, tools, homes and chariots used by the gods. He’s often associated as being the father of Brihaspati and Indra, though he and Indra are often at odds. As when Indra kills his son steals the cattle which Tvasar is guarding and then later steals the Soma. Tvasar is said to be afraid of Indra. However it was Tvastar who made the Vritra to kill Indra; if not for a small mispronunciation in the reciting the spell he would have been successful. 

Vishwakarma (meaning; creator of the universe) considered an alternate name for Tvasar though their myths differ slightly. It’s believed Vishwakarma had five children who represent the five subgroups of skilled craftsmen: carpenters, blacksmiths, bronze smiths, goldsmiths and stonemasons. Some consider them to be a sub-caste of the Brahman caste while others dismiss them as being a part of the unscheduled castes. 

Father in Law of the Sun. He cut off pieces of the Sun so he did not shine so harshly to please his daughter. He used those pieces from Surya to make several of the divine weapons. 

Hephaestus or Vulcan: The blacksmith of the Greek and Roman pantheon. Said to the son of Zeus and Hera or Jupiter and Juno. He was famed not only for his craftsmanship in making weapons, but also for his strength and ugliness.  Vulcan in particular is associated with volcanic activity, fire and brimstone. 

Pearl:

Bright Jewel: Sparkling, eye catching, valuable. Vipasana and some other eastern traditions refer to their practice as the three jewels. I have noticed, especially when there is a spacial combination involving Chitra that these people can go deep into these kinds of meditation. The three jewels, the triple gems are the Buddha, the dharma (one’s spiritual path), and the sangha (the spiritual community). 

Key Themes

Make up is emphasised in all its forms, they are well versed in the not only the arts, but in embellishment, accessorising. They take interest is the little details, they know that all those little things matter, like where the ingredient for food comes from, or the materials they use to craft things. They like to make things shine, but they know true value comes from what is inside. Chitra natives are always pleasing to look at like a pretty picture, beautiful, bright, brilliant. Skill and imagination come together in Chitra making them good at all kinds of design, dance, choreography, music, languages, magic, illusion. They are versatile geniuses, good with their hands, capable of using most tools, making beautiful arrangemets that catch the eye. This might include industrial design, drafting, construction, stone carving, jewellery making, 

They often have a serpentine, well-proportioned body, beautiful eyes and are sexy and mystical. They can develop a passionate persona: charismatic and charming. Although they typify have some kind of unique skill, they need inspiration in equal measure, but these flashes of inspiration can sometimes cause them to speak without thinking. Behari suggest they will “wake up at the 11th hour and try to rectify one’s utterances when it’s too late.” Sexual urges can also come on very suddenly and very strongly for Chitra natives. 

Health: Neck & forehead

  • Stomach ulcers, kidney problems, sunstroke, insect bites, skin problems
  • Look for genetic problems when Saturn is in 2nd house virgo. ?
  • Part of pituitary adrenal axis?
  • Thyroid??

He does not adjust well to those around him because he does not wish to conspire against anyone, and because he his frank and clear in his speech. They are prone to sudden anger but it’s short lived. They lead a life of freedom and independence as they do not like to lose their sense of originality which is lost when he works under others. They generally have righteous and moral conduct.”

Their fat will be copper coloured. They pay close attention to the cleanliness of the house and the orderly maintenance of things. They will clash often with their own people, speech is commanding, family is large, and eyes are red. There occurs enmity between brothers when the division of paternal property is made.”

Excellent grammarians & rhetoricians; the voice of authority who are often the one to give the last word on things. Alcohol addiction for at least some part of their lives is likely, especially, as the classics say, if this Sun is conjunct Moon in 2nd; but the Moon is not necessary for this addiction.

They may be educated in a foreign country, have trouble with the government, and think about things opposed to morality and religion. These natives are selfless, have the spirit of renunciation, are of wrathful disposition and remain as if intoxicated.

Additional malefic influence will certainly give problems to the eyes and heart.” 
  • Commentary: This position brings exhaustion from leadership duties and profits from foreign sources. Moon conjunction is not necessary for alcohol addiction. Strokes, assassination attempts can also Nucor under this Sun.

The classics say they will have beautiful “eyes and limbs,” sexy body, they will chase after bad women and other peoples wives, they will be knowledgeable about the sexual pleasures and enjoyments of life. They will generally have high sense of honour and a good nature. They will be wary be sinful, enthusiastic in several ways, argumentative in nature, will have garlands, accessories, luxurious robes, wealth, live in foreign countries and be happy.

There is most often some sparkle and shine about them; they know how to work the crowd and typically do well in the marketplace making or working with jewellery, costumes, the street hustle or the “song and dance.” They might do a little art, a little writing, sing, dance or play music. Many of them are into tarot, astrology, magic, illusion. They are multi-talented and they can be good with their bodies. The 2nd Pada is Vargottama in Virgo making these people powerful warriors with strong body and  an extra shot of courage. 

They also have a strong logical, critical, numerical side to them that brings success in book-keeping, accounting, architecture, design, town planning, making business plans.

They are good at both planning strategising as well as carrying it out those plans. They many be seekers of equitable agreement and balanced design. They are very good at drawing people in. There is an interesting connection with the eye in Chitra since it n to only makes one pleasant to look at, but it can also relate to the ophthalmic surgeons who corrects the eyesight so that is may also view a more pleasing reality.

Venus goes from being debilitated in pada 2 of Chitra (27 degrees), to being in its own sign and navamsha in pada 3, before falling to the sway of Mars in the 4th pada.

Women in your life will be beautiful and sexy; active and passionate.  There can be a fine line in hasta between sexy and beautiful on one hand, and cheap objectification of sex and beauty on the other hand. in the pursuit of balanced design; balanced architecture. Men with this placement often have a love for guns and weapons (especially on the virgo side).. These people typically find that society and partners can be quite agreeable and they are typically able to get what they want through negotiation. The sense of agreeability typically works both ways in a partnership. If I say yes to the things you want to do; you also have to say yes to the things I want to do. They are typically very good diplomats seeking a fair deal.

Saturn in Chitra 

This is often a rags to riches story where a person works very hard in order to gain respect from society. In the chart of the USA, Saturn rules the 2nd and 3rd house and represents that common American narrative that with hard work a person can go from having nothing to having everything. Putin’s chart (strangely enough) embodies this more than anyone having grown up on the streets and is now one of the most powerful men in the world. The classics say that they will “make magic with charcoal, sticks and stones” and this seems to be correct. They will likely have a thing for gemstones, candle magic, fire, stone patterns, making designs and plans. This can be Columbus and the “magic” of gunpowder, Khrushchev witnessing the magic of washing machines. Norman Mailer’s books were filled with magic. Britney Spears excels at stagecraft which is mostly done by hired hands, lighting people, make-up artists and other servants or service personnel. She also came from nothing.

One suffers from windy disease. A weak Saturn with malefic influence hare can bring very inauspicious effects: difficulties in profession and losses to servants.” 
  • Commentary: They quite literally use fire, coal, sticks and stones to make magic. They sell some kind of fire magic to the masses who are seen as bringing beneath them. They are pedlars of fear and loathing, hypocrites who take advantage of the masses and mass mentality. They might be stuck in this way of thinking themselves. Of course beneficial placement of Mercury can turn this around, as can the coordination between the Ascendant and Moon. They are working all the time burning the candle at both ends; often working two jobs. They are prone to periods of exhaustion, depression, digestive troubles, dry stool. Aries native already run a little hot so this Saturn can bring excessive dryness and attention to detail. Too much nervous tension locking up their stomach and affecting their breathing, their feet are hard and tired, their messaging is exact. This can be an exploited office worker, over worked and under paid; often caught by the fine details of a contract somehow. They might be interns, administrators, activists, or volunteers; leaders of thieves as then classics so eloquently say.

Rahu in Chitra 

Unique architecture, patch job. Asymmetric warfare. Ability to create something really unique, technical design, hardware or software. Very well placed on the Libra side, but on the Virgo side where the craft get more attention than the craftsman.

Rahu in Virgo

Rahu in the 1st house:

  • Phala Deepika: Rahu in 1st house “makes a person short lived. He has wealth and strength but suffers from ailments in the upper part of the body like the face or head, etc.”
  • Jataka Bharnam: Rahu in 1st house “gives a wicked and vicious nature. The person deceives his own men, suffers from disease of the brain, is sickly, is extremely lustful and victorious in debate. The native will experience bodily pain in Rahu dasha; he does not have any moral scruples or hesitation in using others of their things, but cannot bear injustice done to themselves. They are extremely clever and cunning in fulfilling their selfish desires.” 
  • Commentary: they might feel like they have been chosen for a special destiny that marks them as one who doesn’t have to follow the rules of society or even really consider the view point of “the other” except as it relates to fulfilling ones own desires. There are many evil effects of Rahu in the first: they can be deceptive, lack morals, and change to match any situation. Many of these traits actually help them to succeed in the modern world. They will feel like they can solve any problem and will be quick to offer their help; though quite often there is nothing they can do and they may take credit anyways. They are typically untrustworthy and inconsistent people.

They might have position which necessitates many ceremonies and celebrations, but will have little interest in it.

Classical Sources

Rulership: Rules over kind hearted people, those who are pure in conduct, modest, rich, charitable, learned, heretics, kings and those who are devoted to their duties.

Hora Sara: Should Uttara Phalguni be one’s birth Nakshatra, one will be liked by his wife (or by women in general), be fortunate, will lead men, be wise, have income from the sovereign, many wives, will have a liberal mind, have luxuries, and will talk much.

Jataka Parijata: A person born under Uttara Phalguni will be voluptuous, grateful and intelligent and have a lofty sense of honour.

Sage Narada: One born in Uttara Phalguni will  subdue their foes, be happy, will enjoy pleasures, be passionate for association with women, a poet, versed in arts, fond of truth and a scholar.

Brihat Samhita: The person born under the star Uttara Phalguni will be very popular, will earn money by his learning, will be voluptuous and happy.

Varahamihira: Earn through knowledge, well liked, popular, living a life of comfort and luxury.

Brihat Samhita: When Saturn transits Uttara Phalguni, trouble will befall kings, jaggery, salt, hermits (or mendicants), water and the town of Taksasila (or Taxila), which is an ancient ruin town in Northwest Pakistan. A popular tourist place in modern times listed in Unesco in 1980 while Jupiter was transiting Uttara Phalguni. It has been almost irreparably damaged from war, corruption and neglect. It’s believed the name means “cut off head” which is a reference to the Buddha who, in a previous life, cut off his own head to feed a hungry lion near this town. It was famous as a center of higher learning the great political strategist Chanakya, author of the Arthashastra (The knowledge of Economics) taught here. Panini mentions it in his grammar texts, and even the infamous founder (codifier?) of Ayurveda, Charaka, spent time in Taxila. The Mahabharata is said to have been first recited here and it’s claimed to be founded by Bharata who gave it and a neighbouring city to his two sons to govern. Often used as a capital city, it was abandoned around the 5th century. 

Special Considerations

  • Pushkara Navamsha: 26º 40′ to 30º Leo (Sagittarius Navamsha)
  • Pushkara Navamsha: 6º40′ to 10º Virgo (Pisces Navamsha)
  • The 12th Lunar Month of Phalguna (in the Amanta calendar) begins on Pratipada, the day of the new moon on 3 March 2022 (each year will be within a couple of days). This is an auspicious month. The weather is typically pleasant. Arjuna was born during this month. 
    • March 1 – 2 Maha Shivarathri
    • March 2 – Magha Amavasya
    • March 3 – Phalguna Pratipada (day 1 of Phalguna for the  Lunar Amanta Calendar)
    • March 4 – Ramakrishna Jayanti

    • March 13-14 – Amalaki Ekadashi
    • March 15 – Meena Sankranti (Sun to Pisces)
    • March 17 – Chhoti Holi: In Varanasi this means we play Holi with the ash of dead and with each body and fire that is blazing on Manikarnika Ghat; the infamous cremation ground of Kashi. 
    • March 18 – Holi, Phalguna Purnima, 
    • March 20 – Vernal Equinox, Bhratri Dwitiya (Sisters celebrate brothers)
    • March 24-25 – Puja and worship Devi Sheetala (8 days after Holi)
    • March 28 – Papmochani Ekadashi
    • March 31 – Amavasya (Dark Moon). Only good for meditation. 

Qualities of Uttara Phalguni

Shiva – Destructive tendencies: Uttara Phalguni tends towards destruction, ending, finalising things. 

Sage Palasthya

Sage Palasthya: He lived alone in a small hut in the top of the Himalayas and spent his days watching everything and everyone in the lands below him. He lived as simply and peacefully as could be. But he had these little girls who kept looking on his mountainside and he did not know what to do about it; but since it was usually only the girls carrying on and making noise he decided that any young girl that came to his hill would get pregnant. The threat worked until one day a hermits daughter, knowing nothing of the news of the world, came frolicking through the forest singing with delightful abandon. Of course she found herself knocked up by this strange curse. When she explained it to her father, he took her back to the forest, found the sage and demanded that he marry her. He was happy to do so. Together they had one son named Vishrava, and he had two very famous children named Kubera and Ravana. Ravana was the king of the Rakshasas. He was the author of the Vishnu Purana, which details fundamental concepts of Jyotish and mythology. He was also the originator of the Puranas: Brahma told him the stories and he passed them down to Sage Parashara. Vishrava, Agastya, Kinnaras and all the Rakshasa were his descendants. He taught the Mangalya sthavam prayer to favour the completion of any jobs in proper fashion and without hindrance. He also taught the proper way of doing Vedic ritual: Take bath, do sandhya vandanam, and collect enough water to sprinkle over the  homa articles and the  house. Do achamana and start the Vedic rituals. 

Note: sandhya vandanam is a small ritual done at sunrise, noon and sunset. For sunrise we have 48 minutes before sunrise and 24 minutes after,  for noon hour sandhya we just have 24 minutes on either side and sunset allows 24 minutes before and 48 after.) Achamana are the purification rituals, nyasas and various preparatory rituals that will be different for different gods and lineages. 

Human: Used in chart matching but since it suggests that humans should marry humans it also points to a critical personality difference amongst people. They say that Devis should also only marry Devis, and that Rakshasas should only marry Rakshashas; but Devi’s and Rakshasas can make a match in some circumstances. Though the Rakshasa partner is sure to bring disgrace to the Devi partner. Why humans are not supposed to marry outside of their clan suggests that it’s perhaps because they have no divine purpose like the other two. The endeavours brought on by these nakshatra’s might be more human endeavours, which also suggests that the time for them may be more limited.  They also say that humans may strive for divinity but the often fail due to their own all too human proclivities. 

Kshetriya: Warrior caste likes battle, leadership, politics, war and sports. Competitive challenging activities that build heat.

Moksha: The goal here is to accept and let go, to release, liberate oneself and others. Expenditure, loss, release are the themes. One usually seeks to go beneath the surface. Expect planets in moksha nakshatra’s to support all kinds of loss, liberation and freedom.

Dhruva – Fixed: slow and steady wins the race. It can be difficult to change the mind of a Rohini and they like to make things that will last. This is a good nakshatra for beginning anything you want to be durable. Ceremonies, weddings, coronations, starting a new job, opening a business, moving into a new home or any one of the 16 samskaras. Construction projects or laying any kind of literal or figurative foundation can begin on this day. Sundays carry this kind of energy suggesting that it’s also a good position for any kind of spiritual practice that you want to be a fixed routine. Rohini, U. Phalguni, U. Ashadha, U. Bhadra are also fixed. 

Balanced: Here we find the balanced approach. Allows free will and fate to meet in the middle. But sometimes even balance can come at the cost of rigidity.

Rajasic: Function through the mind, emotions, intellect in a spiritually active way. They want to satisfy their passion, achieve something, gain something for their effort. 

Fire: rises up, expands, illuminates, transformers burns, cooks, assimilates

    • Fire + Air = cooperation / Earth + Water = Cooperation / Space cooperates with all. 
    • Earth does not cooperate with Fire and impedes Air
    • Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire

Vata:  Air + Ether = Cold, dry, light, moving, subtle, clear, hard, pervasive, rough

    • Flighty, spiritual, thin
    • Disturbed by bitter (Mars), astringent (Saturn), pungent (Sun). 
    • Pacified by sweet (Jupiter) & sour (Venus)

Female: Imparts female characteristics to the live karakas of planets placed here.

East: You might find the auspiciousness of this nakshatra in the east. If the moon is here you might find your place of comfort in the east. With Venus, your symbols of love and beauty and perhaps your girlfriend may be in the east. 

Adho Mukha – Downward Facing: Relates with research, containment, underground activity, digging wells or mines, drilling for oil, digging up the garden or other trenching activities. It may also relate with shame, pessimism or low self worth that causes you to keep your eyes cast downward. In the Case of Uttara Phalguni it relates with the idea of looking down from up high or illuminating from above. Bharani, Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Purva Phalguni, Vishakha, Mula, Purva Ashadha, and Purva Bhadra. Planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu share this nature.

Bull / Male Cow (pairs with female cow Uttara Bhadrapada) Libido and competency. Libido refers to willingness and eagerness to have sex; competency refers to the ability to fulfil those aspirations. In humans we also have to consider values, ethics, and perhaps opportunity. But in bulls we mostly just want that strong libido which gives them power & productivity. Their primary job, though, is reproduction, to make strong calves. 

Bulls are famed for their strong libido, as well as making a mess of everything as they go along their way. Bulls are infamously polygamous and a strong bull is happy to impregnate a whole herd of cows. Even scientists studying mating behaviour of bulls for the beef industry joke that the “Single biggest stimulus for a bull to mount is merely the immobile romp of a female (or something similar).” A bit of competition tends to be good for them and increases their sexual response. 

Bulls are well known for their aggressive dominant attitude, but nature has a way of dealing with this. The whole herd gets weak when one of the bulls gets overly dominant. Their sperm and competence are reduced while at the same time they chase the more competent bulls away. They actually found that their dominance hierarchy of bulls usually had more to do with age than with size or aggression. And of course the dominant bull is typically found to have impregnated most of the females. 

Auspicious Activities

Signing contracts is supposed to be especially auspicious when the moon is transiting Uttara Phalguni. As is giving to charities or establishing charitable foundations. This is a fixed nakshatra meaning that the moon’s transit makes it a good time to begin things that you want to continue. Moving into a new home, starting a new job with long term prospects, marriage or sexual are all said to be auspiciously performed under Uttara Phalguni. The fixed nature of this nakshatra is indiscriminate so you will also want to avoid things that you don’t want to have a permanent place in your life. Avoid your enemies, and don’t get into disputes, it can be a good day to make peace, if peace is sure. Raises and promotions on this day can be auspicious, any steps you take to improve your life or bring dignity to your position will have long lasting effects. It can be a good day to start any kind of self-improvement regime, health or fitness practice, spiritual practices, yoga, mantra; anything you want to be a permanent part of your life. Ultimately it’s a good day to thank our ancestors for the shade of the trees. Shiva and Parvati were married under this nakshatra making it one of the best days of the month for marriage, especially in the month of Phalguna (February – March. Sometime around Shivaratri or Holi). 

Health:  

Lips, sex organs & the left hand

Sex organs, hands, arms, skin sensitivity, digestive trouble. 

    • Sensitivities of the eyes and skin to sun light
    • Vision problems
    • Stomach problems
    • Sexually transmitted diseases.
    • Some question s could be raised about the differences between the right hand path and the left hand path.

Gods & Symbols of Uttara Phalguni

Lord Aryaman

Aryaman: rules over patronage, favours, kindness. One of the Adityas, Sun gods, often invoked with Bhaga or Mitra. The wooer known leadership honour, nobility, chivalry, rules of society. Helps a friend in need. Gives prosperity through marriage or union, protects inheritance. He is said to be the best-friend of Indra and sought to be like Pushan who always has a flock to lead. 

Aryaman is the one we ask for favours, the person who can get things done and make things happen. This may be the king or advisor or some highly placed person, but it can also be a janitor who is in some position to do favours for even the common people who have this will have people grovelling at their feet. The wicked King Henry VIII, The Magnificent Suleiman, Empress Wu Zetian, along with Churchill, Obama, Ben Rothschild. The king of Blues: BB King. The Queen of Pop: Brittany Spears. 

From a spiritual perspective, whenever we ask god for a favour or plea for kindness we are praying to Aryaman. Of course kings, queens, and others who are in positions to do favours for other have placements here.

Story of Shukra Dev, King Janaka and the Lamps

King Janaka with Shukra Dev carrying the oil lamp in the background.

When Shukra Dev first met his Guru, King Janaka, he was told to take an oil lamp in each hand and go around the whole palace before returning. to report about what he saw there.  But if even a single drop of oil from the lams fell on the carpets, he would refuse to teach him.  The king sent a couple attendants to keep the oil topped up as well.

The poor young Shukra dev carefully went through every room in a couple of hours and returned to the king visibly anxious and happy to be done with the ordeal. But when King Janaka asked him what he had seen; Shukra dev admitted that he saw nothing but the light of the lamps as he was so scared to spill any of the oil. The kind laughed, but said that task had not been completed as we was supposed to report on what he’d seen in the palace. So Shukra dev set out again, this time taking the whole of the day to carefully use the light from the lamps to examine the palace furnishings.  When he returned to the king he was able to elaborate on even the finest details of the palace.

The moral of the story being that if we just focus on God, we will miss the beauty of the world that god reveals to us. ll of those beautiful things in the palace are as fleeting as each one of our lives. We should not get attached to these objects, but as long as we keep the light before the object we are capable of true appreciation for the material abundance and beauty of the world.

The King said: “Just as you kept you attention on the lamp, so should you keep your attention on God, not letting a drop of your desire slip away from the lamp of God-revealing wisdom, while at the same time devoting part of your attention to thoroughly performing the God-given duties of maintaining yourself and others given into your charge.”

Indifference to spiritual matters leads to selfishness and hoarding which causes unnecessary suffering to others and eventually depresses the local economy.  Hence those who want the power of kings, success in political, business, family, or community affairs ought to maintain the awareness that all of these objects of the senses belong to God (Shiva) and are illuminated by Gods power (Shakti).  As the Christians say: “Be meek in the eyes of the Lord” for he is the patron who gives us this whole world.

(This story really belongs with both Purva and Uttara Phalguni as it teaches us how to deal with the fruits of life. Purva Phalguni teaches us how to enjoy those fruits while (especially the last 3 pada of) Uttara Phalguni teaches us about our duty to share those fruits.)

Patronage: The patron-client relationship may be official or unofficial. It typically involves someone with more wealth and/or power offering support, encouragement, privilege, or funding to someone with less power or wealth. There may be conditions attached to the support and even if they are not explicit, it’s generally understood that the client should avoid disgracing their patron. It’s a kind of, “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours,” agreement. This is usually a very political relationship that we see with NGOs pushing the agenda of their donors. Artists, influencers, media figures, and news organizations might likewise get financial contributions and opportunities for career advancement in exchange for following the script. But patronage is not always a bad thing. The patronage of Uttara Phalguni essentially represents not just wealth and power, but wealth and power with connections. This may be used for good or evil, which is exactly what the last three pada in Virgo suggest. Virgo rules over both healing and war and the logic that can easily make a case for both sides.  

On the side of good, patronage funds much of the arts, writing, philosophy, even astrology. Most artists, writers, astrologers, craftsmen at least get their start through patronage. Often, the client is a student or their work is not particularly valuable in the marketplace. This may be temporary like the student, or a more permanent, like the philosopher. The patron might support them with a monthly allowance or they could open doors to galleries, publications, and/or contacts. In a small common way, this can look like purchasing some amateurish painting because you want to support the person who painted it; not because it’s a really nice painting. You might see some talent that you want to support, or you might just support the arts in general. This can be a bit of a gamble on the side of the patron. 

We can easily distinguish the patron-client relationship by guna: Sattvic, rajasic or tamasic. The Tamasic relationship is the insidious I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine and may involve illegal or unethical conditions attached. In all likelihood the patron-client relationship will be kept secret as one or both parties seek to satisfy only their own base desires or greediness; possibly by tearing down more righteous parties. The goals of this relationship are usually very clear, but not very pure. The rajasic side patronage gets used to bring good name, advance career goals or make some money. Both people want to use the patronage to get ahead, but they are not typically up to anything illegal or unethical; though they could be working in some grey area. The thing about rajas is that it moves us from one place to the next: this could be to a more sattvic state of existence or it could be to a more tamasic one. Venture capital works at this level. The more satvik patron-client relationship seeks nothing or it seeks only to achieve the most sublime ideals: wisdom, beauty, justice. But patronage is almost always a gamble since the he or she does not know if their client will truly serve enlightened justice, or express any kind of authentic wisdom. 

Patronage system simplified

The patron represents the patriarchy and the priesthood. The father-son relationship is similar to the patron-client relationship. The patron often contributes out of a sense of duty or obligation. But the son also has to help his father achieve his goals which usually involve social standing, wealth and power. We know what can happen to papas support when the son makes trouble or drops out of university. From the Sattvic point of view, this same father will have a duty to provide for his disabled son who is not capable of advancing his interests; but papa would certainly drop in social standing if he did not support his disabled children. If he were to keep supporting the troublemaker who is perfectly capable then his social standing would likewise diminish. 

Fresh Rudraksha mixed with the dried seeds.

The Colour Blue: This is the royal blue; the blue of the sky, the blue of a peacock feather, the blue of a fresh rudraksha, the blue of the visible light spectrum as it dissolves into ultraviolet light. Many of these blues are not actually made by any blue pigmentation, this is the blue caused by structural colouration. These things only look blue because of the optical effects due to the scattering, diffraction or unequal refraction of the light rays. We get this effect in some of the new age art that completely changes the image depending on where you are viewing it from. We have special dyes that can only be seen under UV lamps, like on money, to help ensure authenticity. Authenticity is especially important to pada 1 placements. The value that is minted in Purva Phalguni is given the stamp of approval in Uttara Phalguni. 

Ultraviolet light is also used in health care, water purification and even sanitation. In times of pandemic they have even begun selling air purifiers that use ultraviolet light to kill microbial bacteria and viruses in the air. It’s used to treat a range of skin conditions, including: psoriasis, eczema, jaundice, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and localized scleroderma. 

Ultraviolet light stimulates the production of Vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D promotes the creation of serotonin which is one of the more durable happy hormones allowing us to feel a sense of calm and well being. The production of serotonin is in direct proportion to the degree of bright sunlight the body receives. However they typically say that just five or ten minutes of direct sun on any part of the body is usually sufficient for the day. 

This is a partial list of technologies that are primarily based on ultraviolet light and their wavelength. Wavelength, frequency and the technologies using those frequencies are likely to correlate with Nakshatra padas. It’s an interesting array of technology that can help us understand this nakshatra: 

  • 13.5 nm: Extreme ultraviolet lithography
  • 30–200 nm: Photoionization, ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy, standard integrated circuit manufacture by photolithography
  • 230–365 nm: UV-ID, label tracking, barcodes
  • 230–400 nm: Optical sensors, various instrumentation
  • 240–280 nm: Disinfection, decontamination of surfaces and water (DNA absorption has a peak at 260 nm), germicidal lamps
  • 200–400 nm: Forensic analysis, drug detection
  • 270–360 nm: Protein analysis, DNA sequencing, drug discovery
  • 280–400 nm: Medical imaging of cells
  • 300–320 nm: Light therapy in medicine
  • 300–365 nm: Curing of polymers and printer inks
  • 350–370 nm: Bug zappers (flies are most attracted to light at 365 nm)

Stars of Uttara Phalguni

b Leonis (Denebola or Danab al Asad) Two fixed stars in the tail of the Lion extending into Virgo. Western astrologers considered this to be the more peaceful end side of the Lion, still a lion, but less likely to eat you. Though they do enjoy a good game of cat and mouse. his is the more peaceful side of the lion. They (Ptolemy) saw it as having the nature of Saturn & Venus: slow, immoral, shameless, revolting, mean, and suffering many sorrows in love. It’s said to give swift judgement, despair, regrets, public disgrace, misfortune for the elements of nature, happiness turned to anger, and it makes people noble, daring, self-controlled, generous, and busy with other people’s affairs. It’s said to rule the front of the chest. 

In transit it can act as a trigger for major catastrophes. If in the ascendant with Mercury it’s supposed to be quarrelsome with an appreciation for the courts. Anywhere in a chart with Mercury and Uranus in Denebola is supposed to cause incurable mental problems. This would mean everyone born between 1966-69 would have serious mental problems. The funny thing is that many countries instituted Mental Health Acts in this period that essentially makes us all wards of state discretion. So you might not be crazy, you were just born into a crazy world. Fortunately it won’t reach this again for another 30 years; 2050. 

The Muslims called this star Al Sarfrah and believed it was good for harvest while hindering seamen. It’s a good time to try to teach some manners and proper behaviour to servants, captives and companions. When the moon is transiting is good for travel, navigation, sow, ploughing, getting married or sending messages. 

The Chinese call it Zhāng, which means “extending net”, or spreading out. It’s related to festivities that are spread out, the divvying up of game after a hunt, portioning out, or gift giving. The moon transiting here is good for relationships, rewards, promotions, industrious work effort. It may, however, come on the back of sickness or death of an authority figure (Leo is 8th from the 10th.)

Tree of Uttara Phalguni

Rudraksha tree (Jivri tree, wavy leaf fig)

The rudraksha seeds are strongly associated with Rudra, one of the fierce forms of Shiva. The ‘aksha’ part of the word is most commonly associated with “teardrops” but rudraksha are also considered to be the “eye of Shiva” or the “spiritual knowledge of Shiva.” Aksha is also associated with protection as the beads are used as a protective amulet as well being used for counting japa or mantra; especially those related with Shiva. The seeds have anywhere from 1 – 21 faces, each associated with a different god or goddess in relations to Shiva. Five faced rudraksha are the most common, and some rare ones can be very expensive. It’s always good to keep in mind that a real rudraksha will never float, nor will it be affected by boiling water. The ripe fruit appears as blue berries; but the pigment of the skin is not blue; the blue colour is caused by microscopic structural details that cause the reflected light to appear blue. This is actually similar to peacock feathers which are pigmented brown but appear to be a radiant delight of colour. 

Structural Colouration: This is caused by wave interference of light passing through two separate geometrically diverse patterns. Frank Evers Beddard (1858–1925) describes is well: “The colours of animals are due either solely to the presence of definite pigments in the skin, or … beneath the skin; or they are partly caused by optical effects due to the scattering, diffraction or unequal refraction of the light rays. Colours of the latter kind are often spoken of as structural colours; they are caused by the structure of the coloured surfaces.” ~Beddard~

Rudraksha is one of the rare occurrences in plants, though there are other blueberries in nature that get their colour structurally. Very often the colour will change depending on where you are standing. The golden mole also gets its lustrous golden colour this way. Interesting to note that both William Henry Bragg and Gabriel Evers Beddard; two Nobel physicists who helped us to understand this effect both have significant placements in Uttara Phalguni. It’s important to note that Purva Phalguni and Uttara Phalguni are two parts of the whole Phalguni so Purva Phalguni likely relates to the beauty of this effect. 

Key Themes

They typically achieve high positions of wealth and power. They are held in esteem by others as they are always willing to do a favour and have their favours retuned. They are usually humanistic, interested in social work or remedying the ills of the world through philanthropy.  They will often seek to entice their friends or colleagues to join their cause. If they do not have a meaningful cause to pursue they may develop resentment, and relationships can become co-dependent.  They are, for better or worse, typically immune to criticism and extremely enterprising. and achievement orientated. 

From a spiritual perspective the four legs of the day bed represented by the combination of Purva & Uttara Phalguni may be related to the four stages of sleep and awareness. One of the main aim of Uttara Phalguni is to accommodate and foster siddhis and latent abilities. Aryaman is like the Great Father who wants his children to reach their highest potential, and quite often we need to work closely with others to make it happen. They have high standards regarding both work and ethics and expect them to be met.  Ambition pushes them to evolve. Seeking short cuts causes devolution.  Due to their revolutionary activism they might find themselves a target of assassination. 

Planetary Rulers of Uttara Phalguni

Sun: Central, sovereign, creative, intelligence, authenticity, brilliance, genius, power, productivity, confidence, vitality, vision, light, illumination, spot-light, insight, centre stage, speculations, games of chance, drama, entitlement, certainty of purpose, ego-centricity, singular, the highest, brightest.

Leo + Sun: This is truly the seat of power. Fully ruled by the Sun; the central intelligence. The source of power, the patron. From him flows all life. 

Virgo + Sun: This combination really likes to get to the main point, the central argument.  They might also like to be in the middle of any kind of imbalanced situation dealing with health, war, enmity or debt. This is very much how patronage favours work. Once the boss does someone a favour, they are indebted to them. 

Pada of Uttara Phalguni

Pada 1 (Leo + Sun + Sagittarius): 

They are favoured by women (even if they are a woman themselves) and they tend to radiate heat so those who have a cooler constitution like to be close to them.

Planets In Uttara Phalguni

Ascendant 

Powerfully confident, industrious, and radiant. Due to their confidence, they tend to get favoured for marriage, promotion, gifts and these kinds of pleasantries; but these blessings often come with extra pressure to perform, to make agreements, or to keep the peace. They can be prone to getting into scandal. Nonetheless, these folks are strong leaders who inspire confidence. They usually don’t feel the need to put on a show or flaunt themselves like Purva Phalguni might. They are also much harder workers who take life and their leadership duties more seriously.

Sarah Yogi (1), Mark Zuckerberg (1), Gavin Newsom (1), Tom Hanks (1), Albert Camus (maybe Purva Phalguni. Birth-time needs confirmations (2)), Patrick Swayze (2), Richard Wagner (2), Hugh Hefner (2), Bill Clinton (2), Chamunda Devi (American Aghore dead (3)), Alexi Navalny (3), Bashar Al-Assad (4), Harrison Ford (4), Britney Spears (4), Sangeeta Narmada (4), Mayer Amschel Rothschild (4), Warren Beaty, Shirley McClain, Brook Shields, Tiger Woods

[Many charts have not been confirmed so ascendant and even moon placements may not be correct. Use your own judgement. Should Woody Allen’s name be beside Mike Tyson? Does Allen have enough “boss-man” energy to be on this list? Does this suggest some rectification needs to be done? Wilber Cohen also seems more like an Uttara Phalguni Virgo guy to me? Let me know what you find.]

Sun in Uttara Phalguni

They carry themselves with a royal bearing and leave little doubt about who the boss is. They are usually powerful and don’t take grief from anyone. This is the boos: the sun glasses and cigar meme. Honour is very important to them. Shakespeare’s rousing speech from King Henry V speaks of fighting for honour, which they will always do. We find also in Ken Kesey’s words that they tend to lead from the front and lead by example. They tend to give to medical charities. many are childless and they often have stomach problems causing them to become obese; though they might just be “big boned.”

I have an interesting combination of a male prostitute who had his 5th lord Sun conjunct 1st and 8th lord Mars in the 6th house. He had many high end, boss-man clients, his job was to dominate them. He suffered a lot of abuse himself. 

Peter Smith (Sun in Virgo – Uttara Phalguni 12th house): He spent much time in the university laboratories with his students, where he was the big guy taking care of the fine details and directing research and development. Mercury and Sun are in the 8th house from his moon, fuelling the research into artificial Intelligence for use in heath care & war. 

B.B. King – King of the Blues. (Painting by Martin Deane)

BB King, known as king of the Blues, has both Sun & Mars in Uttara Phalguni, in Virgo & Leo respectively. He wrote great hits like “Paying the cost to be the Boss,” “Big Boss Man” & “You’re the Boss.” He also supported a centre for childhood diabetes, the Tibet House, and precious paws. 

Leonard Cohen also has this in his first house. It’s not hard to see similarities between these two musical greats. Cohen also sang about a “Famous Blue Raincoat.” He give to the Red Cross and has donated to special causes like the Australian Bushfire victims.

Queen Elizabeth I of England did a lot to encourage the study of medicine, surgery and the natural sciences in her time. 

King Henry V (Sun in 7th house Virgo – Purva Phalguni) One of his only notable achievements was to win an important battle in the 100 years war that allowed France to be united (on paper at least). The 6th lord in the 7th house commonly brings unity through war. But we don’t remember him so much for his actual achievement, but for the famous speech Shakespeare ascribed to him in his mostly fictional play; “King Henry V. ” This speech has been repeated before many famous battle scenes in Hollywood. 

King Henry V

King Henry V: “If we are marked to die, we are enough

To do our country loss; and if to live,

The fewer men, the greater share of honour.

God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.

By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,

Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;

It yearns me not if men my garments wear;

Such outward things dwell not in my desires;

But if it be a sin to covet honour,

I am the most offending soul alive.

No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.

God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour

As one man more, methinks, would share from me

For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!

Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,

That he which hath no stomach to this fight,

Let him depart. His passport shall be made,

And crowns for convoy put into his purse.

We would not die in that man’s company

That fears his fellowship to die with us.

This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.

He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,

Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,

And rouse him at the name of Crispian.

He that shall live this day, and see old age,

Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,

And say, “To-morrow is Saint Crispian.”

Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,

And say, “These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.”

Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,

But he’ll remember with advantages

What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,

Familiar in his mouth as household words,

Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,

Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,

Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.

This story shall the good man teach his son;

And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,

From this day to the ending of the world,

But we in it shall be remembered,

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.

For he to-day that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,

This day shall gentle his condition;

And gentlemen in England now a-bed

Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,

And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks

That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

…. All things are ready, if our minds be so.”

— Shakespeare, “King Henry V”

“It isn’t by getting out of the world that we become enlightened, but by getting into the world…by getting so tuned in that we can ride the waves of our existence and never get tossed because we become the waves.” “You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.” “The job of the writer is to kiss no ass, no matter how big and holy and white and tempting and powerful.” “I’d take a look at my own self in the mirror and wonder how it was possible that anybody could manage such an enormous thing as being what he was.” — Ken Kesey

Elizabeth I Queen of England (1), Harry Prince of Wales (1), Jokob Holliday (1), Ron DeSantis (1), Oliver Stone (1), B.B. King (2), Tegan/Sara Quin (2), Peter Smith (AI, Comp.

Moon Uttara Phalguni 

Valhamira tells us that this person will be beautiful and lovely, earning money by his literary merits, happy and an enjoyer of the senses. They are comforted by being near the seat of power where deals are made, or playing the third wheel where intimate bonding takes place. They are comfortable giving and receiving favours. They are usually somewhat theatrical, with a powerful creative intelligence. They might feel like a saviour, a king, a Christ which can become more of a duty when this is in Virgo, whereas in Leo this is likely to be a more pure or spiritual feeling. The great father figure; the great authority.

The Leo side of Uttara Phalguni is much more about celebrity entitlements, political theatre and unique expressions of creativity and the seat of power. The Virgo side, however, seems to bring people closer to the blue collar crowd and servants, They are also likely to be comfortable with criticism, or in situations that are imbalanced due to illness, crime, argument or addiction. 

Patronage: Charles Bukowski received patronage from the book-seller and publisher who supported him with $100 per month for life. James Boswell signed away his inheritance for a monthly allowance of 100 pounds, which was doubled after he graduated from law school. Confucius also survived from donations from his patrons. 

Marquis de Sade, besides being Marquis and a Count, his family belonged to The Nobles of the Sword.” He joined an elite military academy when he was 14, went to war by 15, and by 23 returned home as Colonel of a regiment of dragoons.

Venture Capital: Investment in small business and start-up companies with the hopes of long term gain. Private investors, banks or even government programs might seek to drive innovation and profits in this way. They usually seek out small companies or ideas that have exceptional growth and profit potential. The returns on investment can be well above average when compared with stocks and other market options, but the risks can also be considerable. In what they called a “total boss move”, Serena Williams started SerenaVentures 

James Boswell was an intellectual socialite who achieved fame by writing the biography of his much more famous friend, Samuel Johnson. He got by spending time with literary geniuses who were considered well out of his league intellectually, but he was accepted in the crowd because of his good nature and easy humour.Uttara Phalguni people are usually good hosts and enjoyable people to spend time with. Boswell was, according to his journal, always in love with some new woman and spent plenty of time with the whores as well. He had a curious agreement written up with his wife while they were still dating. They had been together for several years, though he was constantly flying about with different infatuations and completely unsettled. He had her sign this “obviously jocular” agreement dated August 8, 1768, written by Boswell in full legal form, in which she commits to not marry him during 1768 nor to insist on his promise to marry her at a later time, “considering that Mr. James Boswell, advocate, my cousin, is at present so much in love with me that I might certainly have him for my lawful husband if I choose it, and the said James being of a temper so inconstant that there is reason to fear that he would repent of his choice in a very short time, on which account he is unwilling to trust himself in my company.” It has been said that when the moon is in Uttara Phalguni in the 1st house that they will seek security through contracts and agreements; and they will of course be very careful with these documents. Of course this also suggests they will seek personal security and comfort through marriage and long term partnership. 

Moon in 1st house Leo – Uttara Phalguni (pada 1): In Sai Baba’s chart we find all the traits of a patron or grandfather figure in his personality. He’s definitely the boss and has been criticised for the theatrical tricks he uses to dupe the gullible and faithful masses. This first Pada in Sagittarius so it brings with it a broad global humanistic outlook of Pushkara amsha. 

Moon in 3rd house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni: This combination allowed Mel Gibson to direct and produce the financially successful but controversial  “The Passion of Christ” in 2004; during his Jupiter Moon period. In regards to acting, this combination really allows a person to get into character. One of the drawbacks is that they might come to over identify with their self narrative and miss the truth.  

Moon in 5th house Leo – Uttara Phalguni (Pada 1): Very good placement for literary fame and productivity. Susan Miller of Astrology Zone and Charles Bukowski were extensively productive writers who branched out to other media. It brings a sensitive emotional intelligence, comfortable in the spotlight.  They put themselves fully into their work and into expressing the inner reality, a culture, 

Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski: “ A love like that was a serious illness, an illness from which you never entirely recover.” —  the well known alcoholic, womanizer & race track junkie gained literary fame by the power of the exchange between Moon & Mercury; 3rd and 5th houses. He brought issues of addiction, crime, servitude and poverty to the centre stage and he was comfortable as the tell-all ambassador or the disenfranchised. His words romanticised addiction, mental illness, poverty and suffering. “There’s a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out, but I’m too tough for him. I say, “stay in there, I’m not going to let anybody see you.”

“Find what you love and let it kill you.” “You begin saving the world by saving one man at a time, all else in granidos romanticism or politics.” — Bukowski

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery — isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like it. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.” –– Bukowski

People with no morals often consider themselves more free, but mostly they lack the ability to feel or love.” “I loved you like a man loves a woman he never touches, only writes to, keeps little photographs of.” — Bukowski

Moon in 6th house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni: can be good for healing or caring for the ill, the imbalanced or criminal elements. In one end of the spectrum one might grow up impoverished, parents might suffer addictions and there may be chronic and toxic imbalance in the home. The parents might have convinced them that they are the source of imbalance or a child might learn this on their own somehow. Of course this gets carried into their own adulthood and their emotional problems take centre stage; which in itself might be the source of the problem. 

On the other side of things one may have very good knowledge and sense of compassion and caring for the sick. Since these folks have Aries ascendant they could also be in the police, military, social services, health care, working with addiction and poverty. 

Moon in 8th house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni: they could be working with the details of death to establish wills, work in a mortuary, hospice, the insurance business. They might be involved with making secret deals or even dealing with the small details of secret rituals. They wouldn’t normally associate with the darker or dirtier side of death unless their moon is really heavily afflicted or in the heat of passion. Anton LaVeu, the founder of the Church of Satan has this moon. 

Alexander Graham Bell had this 6th lord moon in his 8th house. In addition to being a researcher has spent most of his life working with deaf-mutes teaching elocution, lip reading and phonetic writing; all the while experimenting with sound and audiology. He is famous as the inventor of the telephone. He also aided in the production of the “Silver Dart,” the first aircraft built in Canada and well as building experimental ships for the Army. His experiments with sending sound through light waves took almost 100 years to bear fruit in fiber optic technology we began utilizing in the 1980s. His Rahu Moon period was a bit difficult: his wealthy inlaws purchased a house nearby, his fourth son died in infancy towards the end of the period in Rahu Moon Ketu, He invented the metal detector using induction. He eventually died from diabetic complications. 

Fiber Optic Cables

Moon in 9th house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni is likely to make someone a professor teaching on a contractual basis. Very detail orientated. Partner is also like to be a professor. Might be engaged on a global scale with much travel and work with people of different belief systems, Deepak Chopora likely has this placement (rectification is necessary to make this fit). I believe he does a lot of consulting work. Guthrie also has this in his chart and was known to collaborate with almost anyone who needed a good spin for their product. He also travelled extensively. 

Moon 10th house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni: as 8th lord well isolated in the 10th house he was well accustomed to danger and he eventually died in his work when. He was famous for his fearless work with reptiles. “I have no fear of losing my life. If I hve to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.” “Yeah, I’m a thrill seeker, but crikey, education is what is most important.” His family maintains a wildlife reserve and he had good knowledge of veterinary and emergency medicine, as well as unsanctioned folk remedies. His Moon period began when he was just three years old. “Since I was a boy, from this house, I was out rescuing crocodile and snakes. My mum and dad were very passionate about that and I was lucky enough to go along.” “The first crocodile I ever caught was at nine years of age, and it was a rescue.”

Moon in 12th house Virgo – Uttara Phalguni: will do much of their work behind closed doors or in foreign places. They could be involved with government intelligence assets, secret planning. They could also be involved with shipping and transport, working on the high seas. An infamous pirate has this position, so does Jean Paul Palomeros who worked for the air force but spent much of his time stationed on an aircraft carrier. Kira MacDuff also lives near the ocean and has spent much time at sea. She also does one-on-one counselling work in isolated settings (where she lives). Even Gordon Lightfoot worked on a fishing boat, but Mars with this moon gave him a heavy drinking habit. Johnny Rotten’s chart probably needs a rectification that would put his Moon in this situation. He was also a heavy drinker with no limits on Ketu aspecting. He also worked for a year as a taxi dispatcher before getting into music. It’s not quite international shipping like we expect from this placement, but close enough. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gordon Ramsay has this placement as well, he’s another guy traveling around drinking too much. Vladamir Poolesland also has this 

Moon in 12th house Leo – Uttara Phalguni: can bring with it heavy drinking and lots of late night celebrations and literary parties. Bright, extravagant, intellectual affairs. They might have foreign friends and it’s likely they will lose all their profits this way and many of their friends. This kind of behaviour can lead a person farther and farther from home. William Faulkner, Gordon Lightfoot and Anne Heche both have this placement. 

“Turning back the pages of my sweet and shattered dream, I wonder if she’ll ever do the same; And the thing that I call living is just being satisfied with knowing I’ve got no one left to blame.” — Gordon Lightfoot

Mars in Uttara Phalguni

As aggressive, competitive, critical leaders they may be offered patronage for what they have done in order to avoid aggression. Like when a food critic walks into a restaurant; they get the best service, the nicest table, the freshest garnish all just so they won’t complain. They often rule by threat of force; though it might only be implied, rather than explicitly stated. The Leo side is likely to project a dangerous power through military, security forces, aggression. The Virgo side is more likely to use those same cutting and fiery Martian qualities to cure the source of the illness, disease, and social imbalance. They might even use these as a source of power; a field of action. They are typically very courageous and are willing to fight and take action to find a new balance. They can be good at mathematics and science or merely have a sharp critical intelligence. 

Suleiman the Magnificent had his tomb as well as many other royal buildings decorated with Iznik tiles which were exceptionally high quality with a lovely design using cobalt blue. These are the same tiles that were later used for the Blue Mosque. 

Claud Monet – Blue Cathedral

Claud Monet Mars in Leo – Uttara Phalguni: He was not only near sighted, but he had extreme cataracts clouding his vision that distorted the colours of the world from his perspective. He was diagnosis in 1912, during his Mars-Saturn period. The quality of his painting deteriorated until 1923 when he had surgery to remove the cataracts (during his Rahu-Saturn-Mars period) The Ketu conjunction from Magha nakshatra working along with his Mars in Uttara Phalguni no doubt brought on the cloudiness of cataracts. As a Gemini ascendant Mars is not necessarily a good planet for him, so he gets a negative result from the aggressive ultraviolet light that is often seen as the cause of cataracts.  

Monet’s Mars Mahadasha went from July 1909 – July 1916. Following a 1909 exhibition of 48 paintings featuring his pond, Monet could barely summon the energy to paint. Struggling with his wife’s illness and death, he entered a period of depression that would last through the death of his first-born son. It was almost five years before he picked up the brush again.

Mercury in Uttara Phalguni 

“The only true measure of success is the ratio between what we might have done and what we might have been on the one hand, and the thing we have made and the things we have made of ourselves on the other. “H. G. Wells

“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good. “ Samuel Johnson

“No thinking—that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is… to write, not to think!” — Sean Connery (was given knighthood)

Saint Francis of Assisi with a Blue Cross.

Canticle of the Sun

“Most high, most powerful, good Lord,

Praise, glory, honor and blessing are yours.

To you alone do they belong, most High,

And there is none fit to mention you.

Praise be to you, my Lord, with all your creatures,

Especially to my reverent Brother Sun,

who lights up the day, and gives us your brightness;

Beautiful is he and radiant with splendor great;

singing of your significance.

Praised be my Lord, for Sister Moon and for the stars,

In heaven you have formed them clear and precious and fair.

Praised be my Lord for Brother Wind

And for the air and clouds and every kind of weather

by which you give your creatures nourishment.

Praised be my Lord for Sister Water,

helpful and humble and precious and pure.

Praised be my Lord for Brother Fire,

By which you light up the dark.

Fair is he and joyful and mighty and strong.

Praised be my Lord for our sister, Mother Earth,

which sustains and keeps us

And brings forth diverse fruits with grass and flowers bright.

Praised be my Lord for those who forgive others for your sake

and bear weakness and tribulation.

Blessed are those who shall in peace endure,

for you, most High, will crown them.

Praised be my Lord for our sister, Death,

from which no living thing can flee.

Woe to them who die apart from you;

Blessed are those who find themselves in your most holy will,

For the second death shall harm them not.

Praise and bless my Lord, and give him thanks,

And be subject to him with great humility.”

(By St. Francis of Assisi. Translated by Paschal Robinson)

“The truth is that the State is a conspiracy designed not only to exploit, but above all to corrupt its citizens … Henceforth, I shall never serve any government anywhere.” — Leo Tolstoy

“Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers. This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature. It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other.” — John Locke

Student Patronage: They are often patrons of education and empowerment programs for youth. Shaun Connery donated his entire salary from one bond film to the Scottish International Educational Trust, which he co-founded. Saint Francis founded the Franchescan order (Saint Dominique, who was a contemporary, started the Dominican order) There are also hundreds if not thousands of Schools named after him today. He also receives patronage from the Pope in order to rebuild the church. Alan Pinkerton co-founder the Pinkerton School for the Blind. He also began work on a databank to centralize all data on crime in the USA. Satguru gives lavishly to youth projects without needing to list them. The great literary giant Tolstoy founded numerous schools for emancipated serfs. Rajiv Gandhi also has an education foundation and offers several scholarships. John Locke is one of the pioneers of what we consider good schooling. 

Many of them seem to have had some difficulties in primary education and preferred to self-educate. Writing about crime, poverty, and exploitation is common. Most of these people have a soft spot for the exploited classes and seek to remedy this by investing in the youth.  

Eye problems: Ray Charles, Pinkerton school for the blind. The term “private eye” also came from them. Assisi went blind, 

H.G. Wells wrote and then later revised a short story about the “Country of the Blind.” And a quick internet search describes his vision as dystopic. Which raises an interesting point about this placement. Many of them are visionaries of sorts, looking forward to a brighter future. Surveillance, private eyes, and perhaps that great eye in the pyramid is represented here

Many of them have dedicated their lives of fighting crime and defeating enemies like the Pinkertons and some of the military generals who have Mars in Uttara Phalguni. Others fought against illness, disease, poverty, In a few cases, they might be the ones to weaponized these things to destroy the competition in the way debt enslaves the poor. and weaponized by Mars

Students seek favours and patronage. My act to empower the youth, empowerment through education and words.

Jupiter in Uttara Phalguni  

Tall, stately, priests, professors, advisors and father figures and patrons. Their beliefs seem to be mostly conservative or libertarian; they believe in individual freedom, liberty sovereignty. On one hand they don’t like the state interfering with people’s lives, while on the other hand, they tend to prefer a coherent state religion or ideology. They might want to use faith or ideology to uplift the oppressed. Their beliefs may become controversial.  

King Francis I and Emperor Suleiman the Magnificent shaded a unique truce between each other that was based on mutual patronage and trade.

King Frances I has Sun & Jupiter conjunct in Uttara Phalguni with Rahu & Mercury conjoining from Hasta & Chitra. He was known as a prodigious patron of the arts, sciences and scholars of all kinds. . He had a controversial military and trade pact with the Ottoman emperor, Suleiman the Magnificent. He supported catholic priests to go to the new world to teach and spread the faith. When Portugal and Castille signed a treaty dividing the new world between them, King Fances is reported to have said “The sun shines for me as it does for others. I would very much like to see the clause of Adam’s will by which I should be denied my share of the world.”

Venus in Uttara Phalguni

They often have sleep problems. Art critics. Great taste in art and film. Might be very critical about their spouse. Love being married, but find their partner later in life. Mid-thirties. 

More adventurous, dramatic and creative. They can have a special touch with photography and film. A good eye for colour. Gabriel Lippmann was actually the first person to take a colour photograph based on a phenomena called “interference.” They are usually ethical, committed, the details of marriage, relationship, terms of agreement. They may have difficulty in relationships because they are so focused on the little details that they miss the bigger picture of what is going on. Or the marriage itself may be just a detail or duty that must be attended. Women with this placement might commit too quickly and be surprised when their partner isn’t also arranging the marriage on the second date. Men might meet women who who blind side them like this.

Saturn in Uttara Phalguni

Sauron, the main protagonist of Lord of the Rings.

“All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,

A light from the shadows shall spring;

Renewed shall be blade that was broken,

The crownless again shall be king.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” J.R.R. Tolkien

At this point I notice that many of the Uttara Phalguni placements relate with some kind of fantasy story. In the case of Saturn we find truth emerging g from darkness after a long struggle. If Saturn in 7th lord then a long term difficult commitment to marriage might be in the cards. Saturn does very well on the Virgo side of Uttara Phalguni for economists, administrators and others who are responsible for the details. 

They can very arrogant about making a deal, especially on the Leo side. They seek their own benefit but it bites them. They might even fear the negotiation process finding it a burden and fearing that others are trying to take advantage of them. They can be very harsh: take it or leave it

On the Virgo side Saturn does better in the 2nd or 3rd pada where he goes into his own house in the Navamsha. They want a fair and legal means of settling disputes and typically work in the service sector completing tasks for important people. They may be controlled or restricted by their patrons and will likely be controlling of those who are supported by them one day. Servants will also be really good business people who want to serve in a long term position. They are very detail orientated; details are always correct unless some other affliction is present. It’s said that they are happy to sleep on a hard bed and a strong durable bed will bring durability to Saturns house rulerships in your individual chart. For example, if Saturn rules the 7th house they should have a strong bed for a durable marriage.

Rahu in Uttara Phalguni 

Excellent analytical skills, logic, deal making, argumentation, rhetoric, governance, politics, art of the deal, and diplomacy. They are fascinated by celebrity entertainments and tend to have an oversized ego: they are always the centre of the universe. 

B.F. Skinner: “Behavior is shaped and maintained by its consequences.” “Do not intervene between a person and the consequences of their behavior.” However, “A person who has been punished is not simply less inclined to behave a certain way, at best, they learn how to avoid punishment.”  — 

Rembrandt had a unique why of using blue pigments in his paintings.

Rembrandt: After completing his apprenticeship in painting he returned to his parents house. I began taking on students, but he would only take on students who already had some skills and could begin selling their work immediately. They were essentially trained to copy his works and styles which were popular at the time. He earned both from the hefty tuition he charged as well as earning from the sales of the students’ works. In many cases his students were more like artist assistants rather than students. In short you could say that he is cheating his students. 

Martha Stewart was indicted for conspiracy, obstruction of justice and securities fraud over the sale of some personal stock. Norman Mailer was incorrigible in every respect: he drank too much, got into fights, once stabbed his wife, was banned from a community centre for drunkenly singing dirty songs, and crusaded against “women’s liberation.”

DH Lawrence: He was fascinated by the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. He was heavily censored by those wishing to police the human condition and make the natural function of the body crimes against god. His writing was considered pornographic in his time; but there was little in there to excite my adolescent mind when I started reading his work in high school. With this position of Rahu they are likely to stir a lot of controversy, suffer much misrepresentation. He grew up the son of a coal miner in central England. He knew the horrors of working class life and sought to leave it behind, but it underlied the setting of most of his literature. 

He completed his major Rahu Mahadahsa by the time he was 22 years old. Around the age of 17 he went to work for a surgical appliance manufacturer. But due to pneumonia he left the position and returned home. In Jupiter – Rahu Dasha about 14 years later he suffered a case of influenza that almost killed him. He was also heavily persecuted and censured for his anti-war stance and was even accused of being a spy in this period. He was at the limits of poverty and unable to publish any of his writing, so he left his home country in 1919 to begin what he called his “savage pilgrimage” (this was the beginning of the Mahadasha of his Saturn in Ardra 9th house). He travelled a good part of Europe and eventually went to America. Along the way he visited intellectuals and communities that shared his passion for the freedom of the human spirit. 

In his letters to Bertrand Russell around the year 1915, Lawrence voiced his opposition to enfranchising the working class and his hostility to the burgeoning labour movements, and disparaged the French Revolution, referring to “Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity” as the “three-fanged serpent”. Rather than a republic, Lawrence called for an absolute dictator and equivalent dictatrix to lord over the lower people. In truth, however, he was just a contrary man who contradicted himself and didn’t seem to have given politics and true thought. Some feminists have called his novels “master works of misogyny.” Even the obituaries after his death were “unsympathetic or hostile.”

Ketu in Uttara Phalguni

We cannot really do an honest assessment of one node without considering what the other node is up to; they are alway working together in some way.  

Some might criticise Osho for bring so focused on his foreign audience that he could not see the social work that could be done in his own back yard. Much of his money which could have been used for good has been thrown away by Rahu; just wasted in Pisces and perhaps even used for nefarious purposes in Uttara Bhadrapada. It’s was likely this Rahu who set his unsuccessful search for asylum in motion due to Rahu’s desire to escape rather than face or try to fix his problems. He neglected his patronage duties and received no favours in return.  On the other hand, it was very much due to the foreign, new-age students that he was able to rise to such a high position as his Ketu is well placed in his main chart, moon chart and Navamsha.

  • Sun transits to Purva Phalguni about Aug 30 to Sept 12 each year
  • Ganesha Chaturthi: Rat connection. Feed the mind and senses on the full moon so that they are satisfied. Quell the hunger of the senses. 
  • The 12th Lunar Month of Phalguna (in the Amanta calendar) begins on Pratipada, the day of the new moon on 3 March 2022 (each year will be within a couple of days). This is an auspicious month. The weather is typically pleasant. Arjuna was born during this month.

Qualities of Purva Phalguni

Vishnu – Sustaining, Maintaining, Organising principle: Focus is to maintain order in the universe, in society and life. Their focus is to maintain what is here and keep things going. It primarily does this through organization of the available resources. Purva Phalguni often does this through some kind of trust that may be self-sustaining and thus never ending. On the other hand they can be criticised for coasting after some initial success.   

Sage Atri: He was a Brahma Rishi who wrote many of the hymns and mantras in the Vedas. He was famed for his power of detachment. Author of Atri Samhita & Atri Smriti. His wife, Anusuya was known as the embodiment of chastity. To test her purity the trinity, Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva, all show up at her home as sadhus and demand that she make herself naked before serving them. Out of a sense of hospitality and charity she immediately agreed to this. She then had the three gods turned into infants before getting naked and nursing them one after the other. The great gods were so overwhelmed by this that they took her for their own mother and blessed her family by having themself be born again from her womb. Brahmas was born as Soma, Vishnu as Dattatreya, and Shiva as Durvasa. In his second life Sage Atri had two more children: Aryaman (nobility) and Amala (purity). Budh (the planet Mercury) was one of his notable grandsons.

Dattatreya

Dattatreya is notable today for his connection to tantra and devotional practice through the Natha lineage of India. For Natha’s Dattatreya is an incarnation of Shiva and their first guru. He is known as the “Lord of Yoga.” He has numerous temples along the North bank of the Narmada river where pilgrims can get food, shelter and rest. He is often depicted with a dog to show his loyalty and caring nature towards even the lowest dogs of this world. This kind of caring and charity is common with this placement. They often seek to care for or uplift the down trodden. 

Sage Durvasa

Durvasa seemed to gain spiritual power whenever he cursed someone, which he did often, but it didn’t always work out good for him. He once cursed a righteous king with a frightful demon that sprouted from a single strand of hair. The power of the king’s moral standing easily defended him by raising a more powerful beast who chased Durvasa around until he finally went back to the king to ask pardon. Another time he cursed a young maiden to be forgotten by her lover and she was. All this suggests that Purva Phalguni people can overestimate their power. And by raising others up indiscriminately they might discover that they’ve created the very beast which is their downfall. We see this especially with Saturn in this Nakshatra connecting with the black strand of hair. 

Drona, the mad leader of the Kaurava family was a disciple of Atri. Right around the time Yudhishthra announced the death of Drona’s son, Atri came to counsel him to give up the bloody war and stop the destruction that had come from his actions which went against dharma. Drona heeds this advice and goes into a completely detached meditation in the middle of the battlefield until he is killed. Atri also crossed paths with the Pandavas during their exile. By Krishna’s blessing Drupati was able to satisfy his hunger with a single grain of rice to avoid the wrath of his curse. Like Drona, many Purva Phalguni people will do the right thing once they realize their mistake. There almost seems to be an indiscriminate sense of multiplication as good karma multiplied the rice grains and bad karma multiplied into a civil war and eventual surrender for the primary antagonist. 

Human/Manushya: Human nakshatras are more likely to live a human life style and it’s advised that they marry others who are of the clan of humans. They are neither gods nor demons, but lie somewhere in between seeking a higher form of existence but often falling short of even their own ideals. 

Brahmin: Priestly educated caste. Planets here will seek to follow dharma, philosophy, and a humanistic path. They may seek to spread and espouse their ideas, wisdom, beliefs or ideology. 

Kama: Motivation comes through desire and is often influenced by social situations and the opinion of others. They seek connection, profit, and free choice. 

Krura/Ugra – Fierce/Severe:  A provocative placement for starting fights, arguments, litigation, quitting your job, bringing an end to things or taking care of things once and for all. Serving justice or carrying out a crime, killing things, cheating, poisoning, surgery, buying or using guns and other weapons, destroying your enemies or obstacles in a harsh way. It’s good for harvesting, tearing down the old, clearing land for development, activities that once done cannot be undone. It can be great for cutting off toxic relationships, giving up bad habits, starting a tough detox, or going into rehab, completing some act of penance like self-flagellation. Magha, P. Phalguni, P. Ashadha, P. Bhadra are the other fierce Nakshatras. Tuesdays carry this energy which is why they say not to initiate travel on this day.  

Balanced: Here we find the balanced approach. Allows free will and fate to meet in the middle. But sometimes even balance can come at the cost of rigidity. 

Rajasic: Rajas functions through the mind, emotions, intellect in a spiritually active way. They are usually results orientated and active to achieve something. They have some heat or passion inside of themselves that needs to be satisfied. 

Pitta: Fire + Water = Hot, oily, light, sharp, rough

      • Vibrant, successful, aggressive
      • Disturbed by sour (Venus), pungent (Sun)
      • Pacified by bitter (Mars) & sweet (Jupiter)

Water: heavy, cold, movable, fluid, moist, liquid, soft & hard, clear

      • Earth + Water = Cooperation
      • Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire
      • Fire does not cooperate with Earth and impedes Water
      • Air does not cooperate with Water and impedes Earth

North: We might find the entertainment district north from our home or the attention of the planet located here might be in the northern direction. 

Female: Influences the live karaka of planets placed here. The Fifth lord Jupiter placed here may give female children, especially the first one. But even father figures with a 9th lord sun here are likely to have some feminized features. 

Urdhva Mukha – Facing Upward: All these things that cause us to look upwards: mountains, church spires, temples, trees, birds, high places, and tall buildings. The intention might also be in building upwards or climbing the corporate ladder; though Purva Phalguni is usually more concerned with the social ladder. They tend towards optimism and hope and are often involved with uplifting others and like to have others look up to them. This can be a good day for sharing, offering trust or doing things that will raise you up in the esteem of others. Sun, Moon & Jupiter generally do well in the upward-facing nakshatras: Rohini, Ardra, Pusya, U.Phalguni, U.Asadha, Sravana, Dhanista, Satabisha, U.Bhadra.

Female Rat: (pairs with the male rat of Magha): “copulation cycle can be divided into three parts, the precopulatory phase, copulatory phase and executive phase [6]. During the precopulatory phase, the male rat and the receptive female (i.e. being in hormonal or behavioral estrus) will engage in anogenital sniffing. The subsequent copulatory phase consists of the female drawing the male’s attention with paracopulatory behavior: hopping (short jumps with all four legs off of the ground) and darting (short and sudden runaway movements, in which she presents her body to the male). In a reaction to these movements, the male rat will try to mount the female: he straddles the female from behind, and thrusts his hips in an attempt to locate the vagina with his penis. In the event of penile insertion into the vagina, the male rat continues his thrusting with a sudden deeper thrust. He then dismounts the female, visible as a short jump backwards, away from the female, sometimes raising his forepaws in the process. This behavior is recognized as an intromission. The physical stimulation caused by mounts and intromissions can cause the female to arch her back for easier vaginal entry, a receptive phenomenon known as lordosis. These behaviors tend to proceed in rapid succession, only to be interrupted by self-grooming, rest, and pacing by the female (runaway behavior). Finally, ejaculation constitutes the executive phase for the male, which is followed by a period of male inactivity, usually lasting around 5 min. The beginning of a new cycle of sexual behavior marks the end of the postejaculatory interval.

Auditory, olfactory and visual cues play an important role in sexual behavior. Interestingly, a cooperative function seems to exist for the different modalities in the induction of approach behavior of a potential mate ​[7]. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs /pii/S0166432817312330

Auspicious Activities – Muhurtha – Electional Astrology

For all the auspicious qualities of Purva Phalguni, it turns out to be a fierce, severe nakshatra which suggests we hold off on seeking positive development in our life for the day. This becomes a day to look out for number one. Getting rid of toxic relationships can go well as can quitting bad habits which may feel like losing a part of yourself. One may conquer others by consent or agreement; but they have none-the-less been conquered. It can be a good day to take vows, engage in a cleanse or a detox, take time away for meditation or spiritual reflection. 

Health: 

Lips, Sex organs & Right hand, 

      • Usually strong, virile, fertile, sexy, handsome, healthy, willfull.
      • Viral Infections: Herpes, venereal disease, skin problems. 
      • Heart, blood circulation 
      • Vision problems
      • Addiction issues, 

Gods & Symbols of Purva Phalguni

 

Bhaga: God of wealth, prosperity, marriage and the morning. He protects and maintains conjugal bliss. He knows the proper procedure to froster affection and sexual passion between the sexes. He provides the enjoyment and union we seek thru sex that also works to build a family and procreate. Bhaga bestows family inheritance & wealthy patrons. He distributes wealth, honour, glory and prosperity to others, making sure everyone gets a share. This can be like someone winning an award and giving a thank you speech allowing the light to reflect upon others and lift them up. They will always get the biggest portion, they are the big stars up on stage with everyone looking up at them; it’s Purva Phalguni’s job to use their attention to lift others and bring awareness to other causes. Legend has it that Shiva/Rudra blinded Bhaga.

Bhaga is the son of Aditi so is one of the twelve Adityas:

    • “Now please hear me as I describe the descendants of Aditi in chronological order. In this dynasty the Supreme Personality of Godhead Nārāyaṇa descended by His plenary expansion. The names of the sons of Aditi are as follows: Vivasvān, Aryamā, Pūṣā, Tvaṣṭā, Savitā, Bhaga, Dhātā, Vidhātā, Varuṇa, Mitra, Śatru and Urukrama.” –Srimad Bhagavata Purana, Canto 6, Chapter 6, Verse 39,

Siddhi is the wife of Bhaga and he has three sons and one daughter.

    • “O King, Siddhi, who was the wife of Bhaga, the sixth son of Aditi, bore three sons, named Mahimā, Vibhu and Prabhu, and one extremely beautiful daughter, whose name was Āśī.” –Srimad Bhagavata Purana, Canto 6, Chapter 18, Verse 2
    • “Sister of Varuṇa, sister of Bhaga, first among all sing forth, O joyous Morning. Weak be the strength of him who worketh evil: may we subdue him with our car the guerdon.” –Rig Veda

During Daksha’s sacrifice, Bhaga’s eyes were pulled out by Virabhadra, the demon raised by Shiva’s rage.

    • “Vīrabhadra immediately caught Bhaga, who had been moving his eyebrows during Bhṛgu’s cursing of Lord Śiva, and out of great anger thrust him to the ground and forcibly put out his eyes.”Srimad Bhagavata Purana, Canto 4, Chapter 5, Verse 20.

Another version of the story has him blinded for taking the share or the portion allotted to the gods.

    • “They said, ‘Take it round to Bhaga (Savitṛ, the Patron), who sits on the south side of the sacrificial fire. Bhaga will eat it by way of fore-portion, so that it may be as though it were offered.’ They accordingly took it round to Bhaga, who sat on the south side. Bhaga (Savitṛ) looked at it: it burnt out his eyes. And thus it came to pass. Hence they say, ‘Bhaga is blind.’”

Hammock (day bed): rest, relaxation, comfort, carefree enjoyment, pleasure, creativity, procreative. This is where the bride and groom meet for the first time and prepare for the wedding ceremony that will bring them together. This is also where business partners meet. It’s a relaxing atmosphere where everyone throws around ideas and occasionally puts them together for something new, allowing them to create something much bigger than what could have been achieved otherwise. This could be creative people and organizers coming together. People with ideas and people with money can do good business under Purva Phalguni. The hard Business takes place under Uttara Phalguni, but in Purva Palguni we find some negotiations, some dreaming big, some dreams coming true. In modern times we might be advised to find a nice spot in the park and watch the clouds.  

The platform that holds the sacred fire pit: This is a raised platform, or sometimes it just has something marking out the territory. It’s the place where everyone’s attention goes to, it’s where the spotlight shines. Purva Phalguni brings our attention to all the people involved with allowing a star to shine, or a new idea to take birth. If it wasn’t for the production crew and all those people who look up to them and supported them along the way; there would be no star; there would be no fire in the sacred fire pit. The next nakshatra, Uttara Phalguni, represents the fire in the middle. 

Shiva Lingam installed by the Pandava brothers in a series of caves along the Narmada river

Shiva Lingam: One of the Rishis went to Kailash to speak with Shiva. But when he arrived he was asked to wait because Shiva was making love to Parvati. He waited and waited, eons went by and Shiva’s attendants kept asking him to wait just a little longer. Finally the Sage got tired of waiting and burst in on shiva and cursed him to always be remembered as a lingam. 

The Shiva lingam is one of the most ancient fertility symbols representing the union of man and woman and procreation. The round peg has entered the round hole and as a result we have creation. But shiva is all about destruction, and here it’s division that must be destroyed so that unity may prevail

Hymen (Hymenaeus): This was the goddess of sexual intercourse. Her name means: “to sew together,” or “the joiner.” This Hyman covering of the vaginal opening was traditionally supposed to be broken by sexual intercourse following a woman’s (first) marriage. She was closely related to Dionysus who provides the libations to overcome inhibitions and makes sure everyone has a good time. He even helps to numb the pain or discomfort sometimes associated with first intercourse.  

Moneta: Greek goddess of money and the mint. Minting money is like creating value usually based on the value of something else. There an equivalence struck. Juno Moneta was the temple where coins were minted, of course it relates with monetization of money. It’s also related to the Greek word  “moneres”, meaning “alone” or “unique”. The words “nova moneta” were often stamped onto coins and had the meaning of new money  

Stars of Purva Phalguni 

Zosma: (d Leonis) the girdle. the lion’s back, the wise. The fallen angel. It’s said to bring shame and public lynchings followed by some kind of benefit. Hercules jumped on the back of the Nemian lion before breaking its neck. Zosma influences people to go into a dangerous situation to become the victim, or the martyr. Usually have strong (or misplaced faith). Planets that are afflicted here are said to make people self-centered, spiteful, immoral, deviant, rude and full of hatred for oneself and others. Can give a melancholic nature, depressive states of mind, fear of death, and fear of poisoning. They may be isolated or have  mental illness. We find many people going against the established system, questioning orthodoxy and don’t mind expressing their eccentricities (religious oddities, homosexuality, the victim role). The princess who needs to be saved. Or the knight in shining armour.

Some modern western astrologers suggest that when Hercules crushed the Nemean Lion from this point on, he was representing the way that the established order crushes the weak by making them powerless. People who are powerful rarely have placements here; it specifically belongs to victims. 

Tree of Purva Phalguni

Palash flower

Palash Tree: “Flame of the Forest (Butea Monosperma Tree); They can have crimson, yellow or white flowers with the white ones being highly cherished for their rare and mystical properties. Anti fertility in female rats. High doses can cause abortion. In makle rats it acts as an aphrodisiac. There are many indications that it may be used to help treat various types of cancer. Used to treat stomach worms. Effective for pain relief. Most commonly used in general tonics and as a liver supplement. May also treat osteoporosis and diabetes. 

Flame of the forest also get the name “parrot tree” due to the shape of its leaves, though they also look like lips and tongue of vagina and clitorus. Dyes can be made from the flowers and the wood is extremely hard and water resistant (which is a sign of wood relating to shiva. The leaves can also be used as plates. Agni is said to rule this tree, making it good for charcoal and burning. But it also gets used to separate the calves from the cows when they need the milk for ritual. The flowers are usually blooming for Shivaratri, making them a popular flower for the celebrations. Small pieces of this tree also get used in morning agni hotra rituals in various parts of India. It is commonly related with spring, and love, And all cultures connect it with kamadeva or cupid: the flowers being the arrows or nails of desire. Though it’s also used as the staff for Brahmacharins. Brahma and Narada recited gayatri under a palash tree. 

Key Themes

They evolve to true chivalry, renaissance men or women who people gather around and look up too. They appreciate the literary beauty of life: poetry, music, dance, literature, the fine arts, all that appeals to the heart and speak the highest truths. At the same time they are often strong athletic beautiful people who will stand up for truth and justice despite all odds. Perfect specimens in the Pushkara pada three. 

They seek to bring together truth (the Sun) and beauty (Venus). Or at least with the moon here they are comfortable with the friction between these two things. This is essentially what all these myths and great stories are about, much of the great art. They bend reality to get at a higher truth in the same way light refracts through a prism allowing us to see light in the rainbow rather than just the things illuminated by light. Purva Phalguni represents the visible light spectrum. How clear the light is from any individual’s chart will affect the truth they are reaching for and Venus will have much to say about the beauty they are capable of. In any case, they often will inspire others

They can easily devolve into selfishness, egoism, taking everything personally and basically putting themselves in the centre of everything where they don’t belong. They need a lot of attention and they can seek to get this in the wrong ways. This is a very sexual nakshatra so many like Madonna might use this for attention. Especially if Mars and Venus are working together in the chart somehow. 

This is where we get people working with a kind of sex tantra, worshiping the procreative act represented by the shiva lingam. They seek to create something completely new by bringing opposites together and the way a man and woman come together to make a baby. But this isn’t just about sex, it’s about creativity in general coming from a mix of knowledge of rhythm and harmony that come from putting together different notes to create a whole song (a life) much greater then it’s parts; and luck, divine inspiration; everything just coming together at the right time and place. Ultimately they seek the source of beauty, or the truth through union. They ultimately seek non-dualism not just thru sex, but thru every relationship they have. This whole universe is made of relationships between subjects and objects so every mundane interaction we have in the course of the day becomes an opportunity to see yourselves in the other and realise that although the subject and object appear to be different, they are not. It’s like looking at the rainbow in reverse. All the colours appear to be separate and distinct, but in truth they are not. 

Purva Phalguni represents visible light

Purva Phalguni lies on the visible light spectrum of electromagnetism. Magha takes up the infrared spectrum and Uttara Phalguni is ultraviolet. All of this electromagnetic energy exists from really Low Frequency radio waves to super high frequency gamma waves. They tend to study low frequency as waves and high frequency as particles. Purva Phalguni and visible light involve both. Some of the light is able to bend around a wall to partly illuminate the areas, suggesting waves; but much of the light is blocked when something blocks its way, suggesting it’s a particle. If we look at Leo we will see that it’s about 45% Magha, 45% Purva Phalguni and 10% Uttara Phalguni. The energy that gets through the atmosphere to reach the earth is about 45% infrared, 45% visible light & 10% ultraviolet. We could assume that the Sun in our charts shines with these same properties. We can see, explain, illuminate less than half of the truth, most of it lies beyond our capacity. Purva Phalgunis will, however, try to express the inexpressible. This connection with the sun connects it with the production of vitamin D in the body which is stimulated by light in the visible spectrum. Uttara Phalguni’s Ultraviolet light in the next nakshatra will stimulate photosynthesis. 

Of course all of this brings light, vision, illumination and intelligence all to the forefront for these people. The refraction of light can be from shiny objects which they certainly like. Partners might be seen in this way. They like all kinds of trophies, awards and titles. .Many of the top Purva Phalguni people have literally been awarded knighthoods, the actors and musicians with this placement have top awards like Golden Globes, Academy Awards, peoples choice or guild appreciation awards. 

They like awards ceremonies, weddings, and celebrations where everyone comes together for something greater than themselves. They need to remember those higher reasons for why they do what they do. They need to make sure they are acting as instruments of god and not just for their own selfish desires. Purva Phalgunis are tasked with showing us that chivalry is still alive and well in this modern world. 

In regards to health they should be aware of sexually transmitted diseases due to loose sexual habits which are common. Viruses like herpes in the mouth or genital areas are possible with affliction. Back problems are also common from sitting and laying around, they are prone to becoming lazy. Vision problems and colour blindness are possible with affliction here.

Moon in the Pada of Purva Phalguni

Pada 1 (Leo + Venus + Leo): (Vargottama pada) Strong ego, opinionated, and have a strong sense of entitlement. Enjoyers of life and the drama of life. They may have many children or have many who look up to them. Leo pada gives extra ability to shine and they often have many good qualities that make them role models. They have very high ambitions that can carry them high in life. 

    • Moon: Anders Breivik (1), David Carpenter (1),  Peter Jennings (1), B.B. King (1), Keith Richards (1), Elon Musk (1),  Shaun Lethbridge (1), Leon Festinger (Psychologist (1)), Kent Cochrane (epileptic seizures & rare memory disorder (1)), Horatio Nelson (1), Hulk Hogan (1), Bob Saget (1), Pope Gregory VIII (1), Madonna (1), Mary Pickford (1), Jesseca Baldwin (1), Shirley McClaine (1), Jessica Baldwin (1)

Pada 2 (Leo + Venus + Virgo): They are usually calm, cool, grounded people, even in stressful situations. They are very hard workers who will continue to work even if sick or injured. The classics say they are unenthusiastic, sad and hate women. Perhaps this is merely because they are too cool. They may work with children in some way.. 

    • Moon: Andre-Marie Ampere (2), Hannah Arendt (2), Larissa (2), Anita Dzus (2), Tanya Tucker (2), Jeanne Weber (2), Matthew McConaughey (2),  Dalai Lama XIV (2), William Henry Bragg (2), Bill Cosby (2), David Ivad (2),Ted Kennedy, (2), Max Planck (2), John Travolta (2), Brett Hull (2), Rajiv Gandhi (2)

Pada 3 (Leo + Venus + Libra): (Pushkara pada) The moon here is rare. They get their power and wealth through promoting balance, harmony and love. They are usually very creative, original people with artistic talent; the classics specify architecture and sculpture, but obviously they can be great writers too. . They are compassionate and love their relatives and like to be close with their family. They often become experts in many fields, renaissance men or rhode scholar types who have mastered every branch of learning. They are charitable and giving, have a cordial temperament, and complete their good work on time. They are perfect; always attractive to the opposite sex.

    • Moon: JK Rowling (3), Candy Barr (3), Jack Kerouak (3), Michelle Pfeiffer (3), Jack Welch (3), Dante Alighieri (3),

Pada 4 (Leo + Venus + Scorpio) Power comes through diplomacy, in this 4th pada there are likely to be secret negotiations. They are always looking for funding and seeking to attract wealthy patrons. The classics call them beggars, sad, poor and jobless, they come ashamed with their hat in hand, but they are bold and will take the top position in any field; they develop enmity with many people, are mostly selfish and live for themselves despised by all. They may experience lots of jealousies, rivalries, and inter-office politics. But they can also sacrifice for the greater good and be relied on in intancse situations. This is typically a more difficult pada for Purva Phalguni.

    • Moon: Gandhi (4), Alan Watts (4), Dustin Hoffman (4), Arthur Schopenhauer (4), John F Kennedy (4), Robert Redford (4), Rudolf Steiner (4), Daniel Balabane (4), Frank Abbandando (4), Natalie Portman (4), Veronica Varanasi (4), Lydia Schmutz (4)

Planets in Purva Phalguni

Ascendant

Robertson Davies’ Astrology Chart

“But one must remember that they were all men with systems. Freud, monumentally hipped on sex (for which he personally had little use) and almost ignorant of Nature: Adler, reducing almost everything to the will to power: and Jung, certainly the most humane and gentlest of them, and possibly the greatest, but nevertheless the descendant of parsons and professors, and himself a super-parson and a super-professor. all men of extraordinary character, and they devised systems that are forever stamped with that character.… Davey, did you ever think that these three men who were so splendid at understanding others had first to understand themselves? It was from their self-knowledge they spoke. They did not go trustingly to some doctor and follow his lead because they were too lazy or too scared to make the inward journey alone. They dared heroically. And it should never be forgotten that they made the inward journey while they were working like galley-slaves at their daily tasks, considering other people’s troubles, raising families, living full lives. They were heroes, in a sense that no space-explorer can be a hero, because they went into the unknown absolutely alone. Was their heroism simply meant to raise a whole new crop of invalids? Why don’t you go home and shoulder your yoke, and be a hero too?” ― Robertson Davies, The Manticore

“We have educated ourselves into a world from which wonder, and the fear and dread and splendour and freedom of wonder have been banished. Of course wonder is costly. You couldn’t incorporate it into a modern state, because it is the antithesis of the anxiously worshiped security which is what a modern state is asked to give. Wonder is marvellous but it is also cruel, cruel, cruel. It is undemocratic, discriminatory and pitiless.” ― Robertson Davies, Fifth Business

“The women we really love are the women who complete us, who have the qualities we can borrow and so become something nearer to whole men. Just as we complete them, of course; it’s not a one-way thing. Leola and I, when romance was stripped away, were too much alike; our strengths and weaknesses were too nearly the same. Together we would have doubled our gains and our losses, but that isn’t what love is.” ― Robertson Davies

“Love affairs are for emotional sprinters; the pleasures of love are for the emotional marathoners.” ― Robertson Davies

Sun in Purva Phalguni

Swami Sivananda’s Astrology Chart

“A desire arises in the mind. I am satisfied immediately when another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.” –Swami Sivananda

“Life is a pilgrimage. The wise man does not rest by the roadside inns. He marches directly to the illimitable domain of eternal bliss, his ultimate destination.” — Swami Sivananda

“Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” — Swami Sivananda

“Moral values, and a culture and a religion, maintaining these values are far better than laws and regulations.” — Swami Sivananda

“Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.” — Swami Sivananda

“Know that wealth, sex-delights, power, learning are all bondage. This is the beginning of wisdom.” — Swami Sivananda

“Do not love leisure. Waste not a minute. Be bold. Realize the Truth, here and now”— Swami Sivananda

They express themselves like celebrities; they shine wealth, creativity, style, sex appeal taking absolute delight in the field of the senses. They are usually independent and freedom loving.

They might have a central place in celebrity culture or they could be an authority for it.  They might work in the financial sector, stock market, or investment financing. They tend to seek out only the highest quality. Celebrities or sex symbols with great style; delighting in the field of the senses. They seek peace in the middle of all this wealth & celebrity power.  In some ways this can relate to the Buddhist middle way or the tantric path balanced on the fine line between worldly pleasures and spiritual pursuits. This is why the Shiva lingam is one of the symbols of this nakshatra. It’s not just a shiva lingam, the yoni is there too, as is the space around it which is guarded over by Nandi. Purva Phalguni represents the friction between two things that creates the spark of something new. However, when the Sun is here they have the most difficult task of finding the centre between the two things. It seems to me that the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra’s deal with this for the most part. Until they find that centre they will have much trouble in life. Shivananda & Satguru would perhaps be good mentors. 

That friction between two things is also part of the diplomatic side of things. Writing contracts, negotiating and coming to agreements while still maintaining one’s sovereignty. John Locke was especially concerned with the relationship or agreement between the individual and the state, Many of them like Roger Waters, Richard Gere & Tolstoy have struggled greatly with their wealth and celebrity status in the face of much suffering and poverty in the world. It’s a kind of celebrity guilt or wealth guilt that seeks to rebalance the source of power. This seems quite clear in Robin DiAngelo “White Fragility” as well. There can be a bit of “you’re either with us or with the enemy” syndrome with this placement until they find their place in the centre; though of course not everyone manages this in one lifetime. 

They will have no trouble attracting the opposite sex, but durable relationships may be more difficult due to their oversized egos. It might be an easier placement for women since they more naturally reflect the beauty and balance of this nakshatra. It can be a very romantic placement, but the romance may be almost over-done for many.  tend to clash egos with partners or almost anyone they get close to. They glamourize authority, freedom, sovereignty. They have a balanced and confident way of expressing themselves and they usually enjoy social gatherings as long as they are the centre of attention.

Moon in Purva Phalguni 

Keith Richards’ Astrology Chart

“What is it that makes you want to write songs? In a way you want to stretch yourself into other people’s hearts. You want to plant yourself there, or at least get a resonance, where other people become a bigger instrument than the one you’re playing. It becomes almost an obsession to touch other people. To write a song that is remembered and taken to heart is a connection, a touching of bases. A thread that runs through all of us. A stab to the heart. Sometimes I think songwriting is about tightening the heartstrings as much as possible without bringing on a heart attack.” — Keith Richards (Moon in Purva Phalguni conj. Jupiter in Magha 10th house)

The moon Jupiter combination made him very comfortable up on stage with so many adoring fans, and all those lights and the magic he was capable of making. His Purva Phalguni moon is comfortable up there and he would be comfortable with the routine. He even turned down a chance at being Knighted to show appreciation to all his fans that have stood against everything that the Monarchy stands for.  

They evolve to true chivalry, renaissance men or women who people gather around and look uo to. They appreciate the literary beauty of life: poetry, music, dance, literature, the fine arts, all that appeals to the heart and speak the highest truths. At the same time they are often strong athletic beautiful people who will stand up for truth and justice despite all odds. Perfect specimens in the Pushkara pada 3. But they need to get the opportunity to make achievements in order to stand tall. They have to be prepared to tarnish their shiny suit.

Purva Phalguni moons like to be in an atmosphere that brings together truth (the Sun) and beauty (Venus). Or at least with the moon here they are comfortable with the friction between these two things. What Leon Festinger, with his moon here, describes as cognitive dissonance. Many of the myths, great stories, and great art do this; they bend reality to get at a higher truth in the same way light refracts through a prism allowing us to see light in the rainbow rather than just the things illuminated by light (we cannot see the sun light itself unless it reflects or refracts off of something. How clear the light is from any individual’s chart will affect the truth they are reaching for and Venus will have much to say about the beauty they are capable of. In any case, they often will inspire others and are looked up to by others. 

They can easily devolve into selfishness, egoism, taking everything personally and basically putting themselves in the centre of everything where they don’t belong. They need a lot of attention and they can seek to get this in the wrong ways. This is a very sexual nakshatra so many like Madonna might use this for attention. Especially if Mars and Venus are working together in the chart somehow. 

This is where we get people working with a kind of sex tantra, worshiping the procreative act represented by the shiva lingam. They seek to create something completely new by bringing opposites together and the way a man and woman come together to make a baby. But this isn’t just about sex, it’s about creativity in general coming from a mix of knowledge of rhythm and harmony that come from putting together different notes to create a whole song (a life) much greater then it’s parts; and luck, divine inspiration; everything just coming together at the right time and place. Ultimately they seek the source of beauty, or the truth through union. They ultimately seek non-dualism not just thru sex, but thru every relationship they have. This whole universe is made of relationships between subjects and objects so every mundane interaction we have in the course of the day becomes an opportunity to see yourselves in the other and realize that although the subject and object appear to be different, they are not. It’s like looking at the rainbow in reverse. All the colours appear to be separate and distinct, but in truth they are not; they are emitted from a single source. 

Purva Phalguni lies on the visible light spectrum of electromagnetism. We can see, explain, illuminate less than half of the truth, most of it lies beyond our capacity. Purva Phalgunis will, however, try to express what cannot be. This connection with the sun connects Purva Phalguni with the production of vitamin D in the body which is stimulated by light in the visible spectrum. 

Of course all of this brings light, vision, illumination and intelligence all to the forefront for these people. The refraction of light can be from shiny objects which they certainly like. Partners might be seen in this way. They like all kinds of trophies, awards and titles. .Many of the top Purva Phalguni people have literally been awarded knighthoods, the actors and musicians with this placement have top awards like Golden Globes, Academy Awards, peoples choice or guild appreciation awards. 

They like awards ceremonies, weddings, and celebrations where everyone comes together for something greater than themselves. They need to remember those higher reasons for why they do what they do. They need to make sure they are acting as instruments of god and not just for their own selfish desires. Purva Phalgunis are tasked with showing us that chivalry is still alive and well in this modern world. 

In regards to health they should be aware of sexually transmitted diseases due to loose sexual habits which are common. Viruses like herpes in the mouth or genital areas are possible with affliction. Back problems are also common from sitting and laying around, they are prone to becoming lazy and do well with a muse to help inspire them. Vision problems and colour blindness are possible with afflictions here. 

Without inspiration they often end up just laying around all day dreaming in a world with themselves as the centre of attention. They can also make dreams come true. Purva Phalguni is associated with things like “Make a Wish Foundation.”

These are the true creative artists of the zodiac. Like Kieth Richards sys, they want to touch our hearts. And like Hulk Hogan or JK Rowling, children and adoring fans often look up to them. In any case, they are often someone you can look up to; an ideal for the rest of us to reach for; an inspiration like Madonna to so many young girls. They might not always be the best role model, but that’s none-the-less the role they have been given. Usually, with age, they will begin to realise the responsibility that goes with their position. It will always serve them well to be thankful to their fans, and all the people who work so hard build their podium and shine the spotlights. This kind of gentle gratitude also relates to the tantric side of this where we show our gratitude and celebrate the coming together of opposites. They could work in the marriage or dating industry and several others work in higher-end spa, wellness and lifestyle industries. 

They often like children and they make really good teachers and caregivers capable of allowing those under them to dream big. They moon in comfort with the childlike wonder of the world that allows creation to happen. They may find themselves defending the rights of children to be children; to dream and be free. 

They like to have an elevated platform: a stage, a podium, a soap box, or even a horse (vehicle) that lifts them up. They usually like the modern celebrity lifestyle; lots of crystal, glass, diamonds, shiny brushed metal and other things that reflect and refract light. They are often socialites into modern luxury, arts and entertainment, fashion, style and beauty. They like to have the best part, the most stylish and luxurious atmosphere. They usually maintain a devotion to the gods and the ancestors. They are romantic and may be sex symbols of sorts. They tend to have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for enjoyment & wealth. It’s said that they often burst onto the scene to make a name for themselves and then coast on that early success. They are often the ones who hold political or creative authority. “Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others.” They suffer from the cognitive dissonance between their own self centred need for attention and their desires for relationship. This typically proves to be difficult since no one partner can possibly supply the praise, attention and validation needed by our Purva Phalguni brothers and sisters. This typically leads to a series of dramatic romantic partnerships followed by disappointment. These personal dramas usually have little effect on their base of adoring fans who they know will always be there to praise them. They can become diva characters; though Pushya can also give this. They are especially sensitive to feelings of isolation, abandonment and rejection. 

Many Purva Phalguni people have been Knighted. Of course these are typically the top Purva Phalguni people, but lesser titles and awards are there to be won and great achievements of all kinds are there to be made. It’s really about the Purva Phalguni person getting praise and recognition for being a source of inspiration to others. The Purva Phalguni native then directs that light elsewhere, to some cause or back to the fans and people who are the actual source of inspiration. It’s a feedback loop that raises the person up which allows them to inspire more and more people who in turn raise him up. J.K. Rowling was knighted by France and given the Order of the British Empire as an officer. William Henry Bragg was knighted. Horatio Nelson was Knighted in the Order of Bath. Dante Aligieri was a knight the the age of chivalry who made achievements in the 1289 Battle of Campaldino. Rajiv Gandhi received the Bharat Ratna; the highest civilian award. Georgia O’Keeffe won the Edward MacDowell Medal (1972), the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1977, and the )National Medal of Arts (1985). Many of the actors here have Academy Awards, Golden Globes, or other guild awards. I mentioned Kieth Richards turning down an opportunity to be Knighted, which in a strange Catch 22 way only shows that he is a true knight. 

Dante Alighieri (moon P. Phalguni, no aspects): Began his moon period just before he turned fifteen. He was already engaged to be married but deeply in love with someone else since his Sun-Moon period when he was just 9 years old. His mother had been dead for about 5 years already and he spent much of his youth dreaming of love and completing his studies. It was a time of “courtly love” with an emphasis on nobility and chivalry. He was just 24 years old when Moon Venus Mars dahsa came along to give him some role in the Battle of Campaldino as a cavalryman. A real life knight in shining armour. Florence at that time was an important centre for craftsmanship and metal works. They specialised in weapons and armour. And it was the renaissance where they were desperately trying to bring more beauty into what had previously been seen as purely functional objects. It’s likely he distinguished himself in battle because in the following Moon Sun period he was established as an effective leader and tactician with Sun in Mrigasira. William Henry Bragg (moon Saturn conj. P. Phalguni, conj. Jupiter in U. Phalguni): 1915 Nobel Prize in Physics “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays.” Knighted in 1920. Rudolf Steiner: Philosopher who sought to find a synthesis between science and spirituality.

Mars in Purva Phalguni 

“Violence was almost an aphrodisiac for me.” — Woody Harrelson

Sports and fitness are highlighted with this placement. Mars brings their aggression and competitiveness forward. They will glamourize sex, violence, death, police, military, men, masculinity, competition, They might also use force, power, threats, aggression, of competition to bring two things together. They might get a runners high where they feel completely connected to god, or they might get this from high from power, winning over the competition. 

Woody Harrelson starred in Natural Born Killers which was specifically about the glamourization of violence by the media. Little needs to be said about Sylvester Stallone’s 10th house P. Phalguni Mars’ role in bringing violence to the big screen. Indra Gandhi’s war against he sikhs and her subsequent assassination was certainly top news. Trent Reznor wrote hard industrial songs with titles like “I want to fuck you like and animal.” Sarah Jesseca Parker has done more for the sexual liberation of women thru her character on the show, “Sex in the City”, than almost anyone else. She is a good guide for how this nakshatra will be in the female charts. George Bush Jr used very challenging rhetoric to build an alliance or a “coalition of the willing;” those willing to take action: “You’re either with America or you’re with the terrorists.” Peter Sellers was the original inspector on Pink Panther. He made almost his whole career by parodying military and police officers on stage. They have a way of putting Mars in the middle of everything. Some elite physical trainers and yogi’s have this placement.

In some ways this can also be seen as a kind of very direct method of becoming one with god in a way that brings certainty to the Leo. Mars is direct, they walk straight into the fire, they turn up the heat, crank up the passion, the anger, the heat of the moment and then everything else disappears, they feel like kings, on top of the world…. Until it all comes crashing down. This can be a very destructive nakshatra. They may have to push for more and more intense experiences in order to gain that sense of certainty where they just know. Gordon Ramsay glamorized Mars through cooking as an executive and celebrity chef. His personal life was for drunken one night stands with fans. George Floyd became famous for both the violence done to him, as well as for the violence he committed. Dave Toschi was on the other side of the coin glamourizing violence as the real life cop who the “Dirty Harry” character was modeled from. In any case, their aggression is often celebrated in some way. Tends to be a beneficial placement for male children, students and coalitions. 

Woody Harrelson’s Astrology Chart

“I think people’s perception is that when you’re famous, you want people to love you. That’s a big part of why people become famous, because they don’t just want love, they want it on a grand scale. But once you realise – and it’s not a big trick to really figure it out – that it’s just completely artificial, an external pumping of the ego that’s never going to really help you, then it’s an easy thing to step out of it. That’s probably why Harrison Ford lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.” — Woody Harrelson (Mars P. Phalguni conj. Rahu Magha 3rd house)

Mercury in Purva Phalguni 

“A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.” — Swami Sivananda

“It is divinity that shapes, not only your ends, but also your acts, your words and thoughts.” — Swami Sivananda

They tend to glamourize the media, speech, mantra and are likely to follow the lives of the stars through magazines. There can be a lot of cognitive dissonance here because very often when you know the facts from both sides it’s difficult to realize a single truth since facts, numbers, logic, rhetoric can always find a way to make a case for both sides. Jupiter uses his moral compass and discrimination to make judgements, but Mercury here will vacillate one way and the other. They really only feel free and clear in the spontaneity of speech and conversation. Due to Leo placement, Mercury could try to imitate the king and seat himself in the middle of the two sides, or he could try to act like Venus trying to bring the two sides together. This could potentially make them a good moderator. Much of the success of any of these placements includes the position of Sun and Venus; the two “rulers” of Purva Phalguni.  

This Mercury tries to measure or account for the gap between two things. But Mercury is immature and doesn’t know very much. It seems that many of these folks tend to increase the gap by analysing it to death, trying to account for it and glamourising it through the media. Many of these people have put forward some very divisive views. This position is fraught with cognitive dissonance. They can be good accountants and numbers people; but they can be tempted to use this in cunning ways.

Rose McGowan’s #metoo movement fits well with the narrative of self seeking recognition combined with the impersonal relationship connecting victims together so that they might attain praise for their victimhood. We also find a good example of “everyone being equal, except some are more equal than others” as this movement drew heavy criticism for only recognising victims and narratives that supported the talking points of the Democratic party while ignoring the victims of violence who’s stories went against their narrative.

Jupiter in Purva Phalguni 

Thomas Jefferson’s Astrology Chart

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.” “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend.” “It does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” — Thomas Jefferson (Jupiter in P. Phalguni conj. Saturn in Magha)

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have the occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any.” “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more of it I have.” “It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing it.” “It is neither wealth nor splendour; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness.”   — Thomas Jefferson (Jupiter in P. Phalguni conj. Saturn in Magha)

“A man could no longer be private and withdrawn. The world allows no hermits.” ― D.H. Lawrence

The words of Thomas Jefferson sum up this nakshatra very well: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He made these values into an ideology that he hoped would bring the two sides of the ideological spectrum together; an ideology that everyone could rally around like a first born male. They might also try to synthesize two opposing beliefs. They are usually very open to different cultures, opinions and religions. Their creativity, intelligence and imagination may be inspired by the friction of two opposing ideologies. There can be some cognitive dissonance in their beliefs; or some kind of hypocrisy in their lives. They might glamourize ideology and refuse to see the flaws; some cognitive dissonance regarding their beliefs.

They can be exceptionally productive as their business seems to extend time; they can get a lot done in a short amount of time. They may be fond of pageants and ceremonies at the temple or university. Endowments and scholarships related to higher education. This also bodes well for sexual enjoyment amongst the University professors, the judiciary branch, and of course within the temple priests. People with Jupiter in Purva Phalguni can be very indulgent and open to new pleasures and enjoyments as well as different points of view.

Venus in Purva Phalguni

Nietzsche’s Astrology Chart

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Glamourization of women, love, beauty, relationships, art and literature. They might use these as a means to get the podium or they will use the light that shines on them to raise awareness for these kinds of Venusian topics. Men with this position love glamorous women and the women with this placement are capable of expressing a lavish celebrity style; they are not afraid to sparkle under the bright lights. Since Venus represents the women in their lives they may have wives, girlfriends, sisters, or daughters who dream big and seek to make dreams come true. This is a good position for female achievement. 

There seems to be a sense of women maybe breaking through the glass ceiling here; but certainly any woman around these folks will see to make high achievements in new fields. Martha Stewart was a master homemaker, but also became involved in the stock market and market fraud. Both investor and fraud artists were predominantly men. Cheryl Crane became a hero when she stabbed her mothers boyfriend to death in sexual self defence. Kamala Harris Rose to top prosecutor in California before becoming the first female vice president. She is also a strong champion of women’s rights. Julia Roberts, besides being a top model and actress for years, started her own housewares company knowing that the people making the big bucks were the ones hiring the models, not the models themselves. She is a one of the better role models on the list considering her ability to manage so much professionally while raising children and keeping her marriage together. This venue in the 4th house will raise awareness to women’s place in the home as well as giving them a natural understanding of feng shui or vastu shastra type topics that teach the ways of harmony and balance within a space.  

One way or another they will put Venus at the centre of their lives and they will do whatever they have to do to keep her there. Many of them are trust fund children or they have set up investment trusts to manage their charities and that kind of thing. Sarah Ferguson has set up a trust to take care of 14 charitable organizations and other causes (mostly related to health care: cancer and cardiovascular disease).

From a tantric perspective these people love the friction of creating something new. The coming together of opposites to make something new. This can be a man and a woman coming together to make a baby, or it can be two creative geniuses putting their minds together to come up with something. This also suggests the kinds of fusion between two cultural styles, which could be a broad range of things for different people: fashion & clothing, food & drinks, art & design. It want’s to bring two things of value together to make something even more valuable than the sum of its parts. Even Nietzsche’s idea: “That which is done out of love is always beyond good and evil.” suits this position very well. This may be their general perception of art, beauty and love: all Venusian pursuits under this star transcend good and evil. We cannot judge it from that perspective, we can only appreciate it or not. From an energetic perspective you will either vibe with it or not, but you can’t say if it’s good or evil.

Bhimrao Ambedkar’s Astrology Chart

“On the 26th of January 1950, we are going to enter into a life of contradictions. In politics we will have equality and in social and economic life we will have inequality. In politics we will be recognizing the principle of one man one vote and one vote one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, by reason of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value. How long shall we continue to live this life of contradictions? How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social and economic life? If we continue to deny it for long, we will do so only by putting our political democracy in peril. We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment or else those who suffer from inequality will blow up the structure of political democracy which this Assembly has so laboriously built up.” ― Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, Writings And Speeches

“In the Hindu religion, one can[not] have freedom of speech. A Hindu must surrender his freedom of speech. He must act according to the Vedas. If the Vedas do not support the actions, instructions must be sought from the Smritis, and if the Smritis fail to provide any such instructions, he must follow in the footsteps of the great men. He is not supposed to reason. Hence, so long as you are in the Hindu religion, you cannot expect to have freedom of thought” ― B.R. Ambedkar

“History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them.” ― Bhim Rao Ambedkar

“Humans are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.” ― Bhim Rao Ambedkar

They might glamourize suffering, old age, and the cold, hard life. They might do this in order to regulate culture, the arts, creativity, and truth. Saturn fears all these Purva Phalguni fruits so they restrict it from others the way they were restricted. Of course Saturn in Leo also aspects Scorpio so we find them living with a lot of secrets and the truth is often suppressed. They often don’t like children who ask too many questions or show too much curiosity. These people will seek to protect others from themselves, from knowing too much, from allowing their minds to wander. Of course the sexual connotations around Purva Phalguni are also regulated by law, by Saturn. 

These are the dark knights who feel imprisoned by love, imprisoned by the truth. They might suffer for what they know. They usually have a fairly practical mind, but they might be too practical, everything becomes sticks and stones to them. Of course they are often very capable of arranging these sticks and stones in a pleasing or inspiring manner. They want to express truth and beauty, which are ideals best realised in their most subtle form, with sticks and stones in the dense, gross physical reality. The way Manhattan built the Statue of Liberty. The way Johnathan Luckhurst builds beautiful & functional garden stands. Or dare I say it, the way Kaitlin Jenner rearranged her physical reality. They may have personal contradictions or vested interests that keep them from the truth for a long time.

Purva Phalguni has some chimeric qualities to it. This sense of putting two opposites together is like mixing a narwhal and a horse to make a unicorn. That’s fine, a unicorn can and does exist in the world of ideas, but people with Saturn in Purva Phalguni try to really make that unicorn into a reality. They have a hard time understanding subtle truths and symbolic language. 

They might have been punished for their flights of fantasy when they were children. They don’t have a lot of trust, or at least their trust is tightly regulated. They can be incredibly creative, but they want to put their creativity to practical use. They can be good architects and building designers. They can often achieve a nice blend of form and function much later in life. Their fans are usually the working class, farmers, labourers, administrators, and blue collar people; the masses who are affected most by reality. But the issues they seek to draw attention to are not very sleek and sexy so no matter how much they might try to raise awareness, much of their effort will be in vain. Their success, creativity, productivity and even children might not come until late in life. Some of these folks might work with old people, and there is a good chance they will be workaholics in some way. Their whole life may revolve around work. 

They very often find jobs providing services for the elite: face lifts, banking, media production, security and protection, carpentry, music, entertainment…. 

Manhattan: cultural, entertainment and financial capital of the USA (and arguably the world). For the most part, this is where the rules are made. The Statue of Liberty (a big pile of Saturnious stone) sits here reminding the world of the twin ideals of Sovereignty and Peace (Sun & Venus). Saturn will try to regulate culture, education and finance; through longer term investments, laws or constitutions that regulate culture and education; what we call the education system. Artists might do very well later in life after they learn how the entertainment industry works. They might be labourers, service people, or old timers of the culture, education of financial sectors. One the other hand it could be that people with this placement hire many such people to work for them. They tend to have a social conscience.

Rahu in Purva Phalguni 

Glamourization of technology, the future. They are usually fascinated by the lifestyles of the rich and famous; though they tend to spend most of their time alone. When they enter “the scene” it will often be as an outsider somehow. Several of them overcome handicaps to make a name for themselves. Hearing & speaking problems both seem to have some place here. 

Their world might seem to revolve around the foreign, the unusual, the deformed, the pollution or the thick oily smoke. There seems to be many criminals on the list; especially in the 4th pada.. A few people have lives that orbit around oil. Others in the media are very good at creating illusions and putting up smoke and mirrors.  

Some good photographers here: using technology to create unique and original art. Lens’ and optics become especially important whether they’re using a camera or a microscope. They have a particular sensitivity to light and sound.

Ketu in Purva Phalguni

They may become numb to the glitz and glamour of the spotlight; they can take it or leave it. They can easily dress up or down depending on the situation. They might glamourize “the void” in a way they WWI glamourize “no mans land” and Robin Williams brought depression to the spotlight.

Hora Sara: The native who has moon in Ashlesha will be cruel with malefic tendencies, fickle-minded, eloquent. They will have income from various sources, allowing them to accumulate wealth. They will lead others, be bestowed with wisdom (and cunning), and will have sons.

Jataka Parijata: The person born when the moon is in Ashlesha will be silly, ungrateful, depraved and of hasty temper.

Sage Narada: One born in Ashlesha will be mischievous, cruel, fond of others’ wives, crafty, straight in form (i.e. will not be crooked-bodied), addicted to vices and self-restrained.

Brihat Samhita: Ashlesha makes one insincere, inclined to eat everything (poor diet), sinful, ungrateful and deceitful.

Brihat Samhita: When Saturn transits Ashlesha, aquatic objects or animals, as well as snakes are destroyed.

Varahamihira: Moon here causes people to not see the work of others, the have promiscuous hunger, are sinful, ungrateful, and skilled in deceiving others. 

Modern Pijan: Bound to rhythmic repetitive patterns, soothed by restraining embrace, guards the ethno cultural environment, needs familiar folk narratives. “Won’t let go.”

Auspicious Activities: 

Auspicious activities should be postponed when the moon transits Ashlesha. Clean up, detoxify, use sharp, hard practices to achieve altered mental state if you must do anything. Do the things you dread doing the most: like filing lawsuits, facing enemies, deceiving others, lying, taking care of insect or rodent infestations, laying out poison, meeting with unfavourable peers, tearing things down, breaking contracts and putting ourselves in all kinds of uncomfortable situations. This is an active nakshatra so don’t sit around waiting for the discomfort to find you, go out and meet it halfway. This can also be a good day for farming or trenching activities; working with water. Offer prayers and milk to the snakes. OUr vulnerabilities can be exposed when the moon transits ashlesha, so be careful (but not paranoid). There is always someone willing to exploit our weaknesses.

Special Considerations

  • Ashlesha is a Ganda-Moola nakshatra It sits on a junction point of fire and water. It’s inauspicious. A special ceremony is recommended every month when the moon transits one’s natal Moon in these nakshatra. The 3rd and 4th pada can bring suffering to mother figures or father figures respectively.

Qualities of Ashlesha

Dissolution / Destruction: A destructive nakshatra, A day to bring things to an end, tear things down, break things and generally take part in destructive activities. Planets placed here will also bring destruction. This is a very strong Shiva nakshatra. 

Sage Vashistha, his wife Anudhati, and Kamadenu.

Sage Vashishta: He and his wife Arundhati are an example of the closeness, intimacy and blessing that marriage brings into a couples life. Her star, Alcor, is the 8th sister who stays in the handle of the Big Dipper with her husband (a star called Mizar) instead of with her seven sisters. This star is sometimes worshiped by married women in thanks for the blessings of married life. Their seven sons all became great sages themselves. He was the keeper of Kamadhenu.

One of his main teachings was that we must overcome our prejudice, bigotry and stereotypes and seek to work in cooperation and harmony with our rivals. Ashlesha teaches us that this strategy can even be used in pursuit of our own selfish desires. Ashlesha people are often entwined in various kinds of relationships, but they only become successful once they learn this important lesson. He believed there was a common spiritual core between even the worst rivals. 

Sage Parashara was one of his sons, suggesting this lineage has something to do with astrology.  Vashistha Samhita is about electional astrology which is used to select favourable timing for events such as marriage or war.  Vashistha typically highlights the importance of the means we use to achieve our desired outcome.

Some of his hymns in the Rig Veda discuss family life, and much emphasis is put on his hymns extolling Indra & Varuna on equal terms. The power of Indra was needed to destroy enemies and Varuna was there to uphold social & ethical norms of society.

Vashistha also has a famous section in the Ramayana where he answers Rama’s questions about nature of life, human suffering, free will, creativity, & spiritual liberation. He is considered the Adi Guru of Vedanta Philosophy. He taught that the powers of the deities arose from within ourselves and that our fate was not determined by external gods. We must make an effort to live in harmony with nature and with others. He was devoted to righteous action and worked for the welfare of the world. 

He was involved in a famous feud with a king who wanted to steal Kamadenu but he warded off all attacks by the king and his men. In a final attempt to  get the cow, Vishwamitra did severe penance, however, by the end of his tapas he decided to reconcile with the sage. Vashistha teaches us to defend nature and many of those who are descendants of Vashistha find various ways to act as custodians of nature. . 

Mleccha: Mleccha: Outcast, barbarian, uncultured foreigner, not part of society but capable of mixing with all parts of society, adaptable, oftentimes doing piece-work, cash jobs or travelling for their career. They like the subterranean world, underground jobs related to trenching, piping or stringing cables. They relate with themes and places dealing with alcohol, drugs, chemicals, toxins, pollutants and other impure substances. They may be involved with inflicting poison or cleaning it up: sewer work, toxic spills, fertiliser, using chemicals to clean chemicals. They tend to be nomadic in life and work and they may take any kind of job to achieve their goals.  

Dharma: Despite being rather wicked people, Ashlesha is often taking actions that will help them reach their spiritual potential, but they normally have an unorthodox path that may include the 5 M’s or these days we might find them taking drugs in search of a spiritual psychedelic spiritual experience. They are usually seeking out these shocking paths that are meant to arouse the sleeping kundalini. 

Rakshasa / Demon: Mostly seeking selfish ends. Seeking only for the pleasure and comfort of their own bodies. They are more likely to follow their intuition, or seek out the beauty of life rather than following the status quo. They can be violent or aggressive both to defend what they have and to get what they want. 

Sattwic: Tendency towards purity, harmony, truthfulness, sincerity, peacefulness. They tend to have a positive attitude and seek constructive dialogue. The activity of planets in this asterism act as an instrument of the divine. Rajas – Sattva – Sattva 

Tikshna / Daruna – Sharp / Hard: Maiming killing, hypnotising, distracting. dreadful, ferocious, bitter. Skilled at acts of aggression, torture, cruelty, murder, punishment, mesmerising, tearing things apart, getting stabbed in the back, performing illegal activities, acts of war. Really hard training can be started or practiced when the moon is here: training dogs or breaking horses, doing really intense tantric sadhanas or more intense and difficult Hatha yoga practices meant to break our will or or perhaps kill something inside of ourselves. All kinds of incantation can be auspicious on these days: tantra, black magic, hypnotism, casting out demons (literal and metaphorical ones). more intense and difficult Hatha yoga practices. But also surgeries, or treatments like chemotherapy, initiating a difficult divorce or walking away from your kids, all these things that make up a really tough cookie. Ardra, Ashlesha, Jyeshta, Moola are all hard people with potentially sharp tongues. They often find themselves in tight places where they have to make really difficult choices, often life or death. Mars and Saturn combining energy in one of these nakshatras can be very dangerous in transit as well as in someones personality.

Kapha: Water + Earth = Cool, oily, heavy, stable, slow, soft, gross, sticky/cloudy, smooth

  • Stable, slow, methodical, greedy
  • Disturbed by sweet (Jupiter), salty (Moon), sour (Venus). 
  • Pacified by pungent (Sun) and astringent (Saturn)

Adho Mukha – Downward Facing: Relates with research, containment, underground activity, digging wells or mines, drilling for oil, digging up the garden or other trenching activities. It may also relate with shame, pessimism or low self worth that causes you to keep your eyes cast downward. Bharani, Krittika, Ashlesha, Magha, Purva Phalguni, Vishakha, Mula, Purva Ashadha, and Purva Bhadra. Planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu share this nature. 

Active: Planets here will actively pursue their interests. and people may be more active in the creation of meaning and knowledge in their lives. With the snake-like movement here wraiths like a snake, due to the teachings of Vashistha they make an effort for everything they have in life. They can be very independent doing much on their own without asking for help. Mars here can make a person very aggressive and angry. The moon here can make an active mind. Ashlesha natives are often either alert and ready to strike or scheming and calculating. Saturn will be like putting an old man jogging; he can still do well, but may follow the “slow and steady wins the race” mantra. 

Female: This can feminize the live karakas of planets placed here. It also relates to the chaos of the universe.  

Water: heavy, cold, movable, fluid, moist, liquid, soft & hard, clear

  • Earth + Water = Cooperation
  • Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire
  • Fire does not cooperate with Earth and impedes Water
  • Air does not cooperate with Water and impedes Earth

Male Cat / Tom Cat: (pairs with Punarvasu). Male cats are self-going, polygamous, highly fertile most of the time, sexually active throughout the year, and they will fight to defend their territory. They mate loudly. frequently and indiscriminately. They have a unique barbed penis to stimulate ovulation in the females. And of course we cannot forget to mention their urine spray that makes so many cat lovers reconsider their love. Toms like to prowl around at night and will spend hours stalking and fighting as a kind of courtship ritual. The sex itself is over in a few seconds and the male runs away.

South: The events related to this nakshatra often happen in the southern direction. One can also face the south when worshipping this nakshatra.

Gods & Symbols of Ashlesha

Charmed by the snakes of Varanasi

Coiled snake: Kundalini Shakti, Nagaloka

All the evil and demonic forces are seen in the form of a snake. All our fears and secret desires and the really deep dark manipulative ways that we go about satisfying them are represented by snakes. The secrets that slowly poison the well, the hidden dangers and unexpected attacks striking suddenly as if from nowhere. They are so quiet, sneaky, reclusive and self reliant; they could lurk anywhere. They have divine wisdom of the universe and support its continued functioning the sex, passion and procreation. 

Their connection to the world comes primarily through their forked tongue which is very sensitive to the chemical composition of the air, and through their bodies which are in constant contact with the earth: they are very sensitive to vibrations coming through the ground. They have a strong connection to the earth, and what is underground. Their eyes are said to be able to see into the soul, they can penetrate the depths, and hypnotise their prey. A coiled snake also represents the kundalini energy at the base of the spine. 

They are celebrated on Nag Panchami, in the month of Shravan on the 5th day of shukla paksha (July or August) during the rainy season when they all come out from their burrows. They are worshiped by offerings of milk as well as in the temples and before idols in the home. A fast is typically maintained for the day. Celebration of this annual festival can be a good remedy for kal shapa yoga. 

Kundalini Shakti in Practice

Venus is the only planet that does not have a more obviously dedicated practitioners of Kundalini Tantra in some form. Even Mars makes for a very aggressive form of tantra for destroying ones enemies and the list could include other boxers and elite special forces people, but I tried to keep the list to those focused on some kind of spiritual path in their tantra though i n honesty it’s just as likely that someone at the highest ranks of special forces practices meditation.

Masutatsu Oyama

The focus of Ashlesha is mind control. Mars is most likes to weaponise their mind control powers to crank up the pressure until the other person snaps. They can keep their cool in any situation.  There are many other yoga teachers and spiritualist not on this list, a few other astrologers can also be found with planets here.  This is the Shiva of the most fierce tantric warriors and there are war hawks in politics who have placements here as well. It’s also a popular nakshatra for psychologists like Jordan Peterson, Tolle and Piaget. They understand the tension between their own light and dark side; between heaven and hell. Ashlesha introduces people to the evils of life and they often come to recognise the beast which lies within themselves. A great deal of their life is spent feeding the beast and making it stronger, while at the same time learning to control that beast. They seek the balance a peaceful equinamious poise with the ability to strike and sieze what you want at the right moment.

Pattabhi Jois

A list of Kundalini masters and practicioners: Baba Ramdev, Sri Aurobindo, Masutatsu Oyama, Steven Seagal, Edward Smyth-Osbourn, Muhammed Ali, Pattabhi Jois, Shiv Code, Pranal Baba, Jordan Peterson, Shivananda, Mike Holliday, Robert Boustany, Michael Dordaro, Saint Francis Asssisi, Eckhart Tolle, Krishnamachaya, Osho, Mercury, Jupiter, Morihei Ueshiba, Bepin Behari, Gandhi, Alice Bailey.

Caduceus was originally a symbol of immunity related to commerce and diplomatic ambassadors

Caduceus

Staff of Hermes (also known as Mercury to the Romans) has two snakes coiled around it with a set of wings near the handle. When it was given to him by his elder brother he was told it had the power to “unite in love all being divided by hate.” With this new power he became the messenger or ambassador of the gods capable of travelling freely through all worlds. The caduceus provides the bearer with a kind of diplomatic immunity that allows safe passage anywhere, including the underworld. The three parts of the staff, the rod, the snakes, and the wings symbolise the power, wisdom, and quickness necessary for journeys to far away lands.  Alternately the wings symbolise heaven and the snakes symbols hell. The staff in the middle is the earth.   

Hermes was well known as the god of commerce, travelling salesmen, foreign diplomats, and thieves and those lying on their deathbed. He was famous for his eloquence and rhetoric as he was capable of speaking from both sides of his mouth and convincing people that what is unworthy is worthy. This connects him also with modern law, politics, marketing, police in general and activism. It’s likely that he has some rulership over coinage, especially in the modern day where bills are rarely worth the paper they’re printed on. 

This symbol has also been used by publishers and printers and relates to the immunity we give to media that allows them to print both sides of a story without penalty. Postal carriers, and customs offices also use this symbol. In modern times it has come to be used as a symbol for the medical profession but there is some controversy over this due to the commercial implications of the symbol. However, it would remain a fitting symbol for organisation’s like the Peace Corps or Doctors Without Borders who commonly seek safe passage in foreign lands. The symbol of healing and medicine is actually the Staff of Aesculapius which only had a single snake wrapped around it. 

Aesculapius’ the healer with a single serpent on his staff and a faithful dog nearby.

The Staff of Aesculapius

single snake coiled around a cypress branch. Aesculapius was Apollo’s son who was born from the mother who Apollo had just killed for being unfaithful. He had Hermes deliver the child while the mother was on the funeral pyre. Chiron was tasked with teaching the boy who eventually grew up to become the god of medicine. Hypocrites was the 20 generation member of the Cult of Aesculapius. It’s said that Aesculapius’ healing temples were filled with non-poisonous snakes. There were special chambers where patients could sleep and report on their dreams in order to direct the kind of treatments they would receive. Many of the healers of this lineage were wandering itinerant healers. 

Bowl of Hygieia (hygiene)

This cup or chalice with a snake wrapped around it was representative of Aeculapius’ wife or associate (or nurse). Hygieia was the goddess of health and hygiene. The image is used by pharmacists and has since merged with the image of the mortar and pestle used for blending ingredients. She was, however, most commonly worshiped for the prevention of illness in relation to hygiene. Her name has also been given to an asteroid belt, Hygiea, considered to be a dwarf planet, which incidentally suffered a major collision in 2019.

Vishnu reclining on Shesha nag
Shesha 

Adi Ananta Shesh Naag is the king of all snakes. He is the snake upon which Vishnu sits floating on the Ocean of MIlk. He is the servant, supporter and protector of Lord Vishnu. He is also called Sankarshana, the tamasic dark energy of Lord Narayana. It is he who creates the 11 Rudras who bring about ultimate destruction. Shesha means “the remainder” and he is all that is left after dissolution. This term is also used in mathematics referring to what is left over. He is said to hold all the planets of the universe in the hoods of his many heads. When he uncoils time moves forward and creation takes place. When he coils back up the universe ceases 

He is the eldest brother of the snakes born in the union between Kashyap and Kadru: Shesha, Vasuki, Airavata and Takshaka. Garuda is his step-brother. Shesha eventually left his family disheartened by their duplicity. After years of penance Brahma offered him a boon: he wanted only to keep his mind under control so that he could continue with his ascetic penances. Brahma then asked him to go beneath the earth and stabilise it.

Incarnated three times: as Laxman, as Balarama & as Ramanujacharya, a proponent of Vishishtadvaita school of vedanta He represents the peaceable sattvic aspect of snakes.  

Vasuki 

As an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva he took the place around Shiva’s neck and he allowed himself to be used as the string of the bow used by Shiva to destroy the three cities called: Tripura Dahanam 

He wrapped himself around Mount Mandara so that it could be used as a churning rope to get the Amrita from the ocean of milk. It was he who vomited the poison that threatened to destroy the universe during the churning of the ocean. The churning brought great strain to him and he almost died. It was Shiva who drank the poison to save everyone. He represents the rajasic-active aspect of snakes.

Nagadev

Tankshka

When Arjuna and the Pandavas conquered Khandavprastha they disturbed the nearby forest where the snakes were dwelling. Takshaka was greatly angered by this and attacked the army of the Pandavas, killing the whole army leaving only the Pandava brothers and their wife Draupadi. Arjuna then set fire to the Nagaloca forest. Takshaka vowed to kill one of the descendants of the Pandava lineage. 

The great king Parikshit, a grandson of Yudhisthira from the Mahabharata and thus a descendant of the famous Pandava brother, had resumed ruling Hastinapur under the Pandava name. He was greatly loved by his people. But one day he made the mistake of disrespecting the great Rishi Shamika whose son witnessed the event and cursed the king to die by snake bite within 7 days. Of course this was the fulfilment of a vow that was uttered two generations earlier. Takshaka bribed the only man who could cure snake bites to leave town, and then he stealthily snuck into the safe space king Parikshit had made for himself with hopes of surviving the stipulated period and killed him with a single venomous bite. 

The king’s son, Janamejaya, in turn vowed revenge and began performance of the Sarpamedha yagna which caused the snakes of the whole universe to fall into the havan kund. Takshaka, however, got himself caught up in the wheel of the chariot of Surya and the whole chariot was being dragged into the sacrificial fire along with the snake. The gods intervened to save Surya’s chariot, and in the process saved Takshaka, allowing him to continue the serpent lineage. 

Takshaka represents the tamasic-poisonous aspect of snakes. Some other significant snakes are Padma, Kambala, Karkotaka, Ashvatara, Dhritarashtra, Kaliya, Pingala, Vritra, Vala. But some of these might more rightly be attributed to Jyeshta (serpent eating its own tail) or Uttara Bhadrapada (the serpent of the deep).  

Garuda 

Known also as the devourer (of snakes), the king of birds, the golden bodied one with the most beautiful feathers. 

The snakes had worked out a truce with Garuda where he would get to eat one snake per day, but would have to leave them otherwise alone. The exiled Gandharva prince wanted to help the snakes so he decided to offer himself as Garuda’s food for one day. While he was on his way to the sacrificial site he came across a young woman weeping for the fate of her son, Shankhachur (king Cobra) whose day it was to be eaten. And though he offered himself, she didn’t feel it was right for a Gandharva Prince to take the place of a lowly serpent in the sacrifice. But he insisted, when Garuda came for a snake he picked up the prince and began to carry him off. But the serpent that was supposed to be eaten, calls out to Garuda and tells him of the mistake. Of course Garuda does not want to cause harm to the Gandharva prince so he releases him with little harm. But everyone is so impressed with the sacrificial enthusiasm that the snakes are given a greater boon to not be eaten at all. 

Laxman

Incarnation of Shesha who was born to protect and support his brother Rama. 

Balarama

Balarama

The god of agriculture and strength was an incarnation of Shesha, Krishna’s elder brother, and son of Vasudeva and Rohini. He carried a mace and a plough. The was a straightforward, simple, honourable soul who was stronger than a whole herd of elephants but did not always understand the complex thinking of his younger brother. The two of them are always together in their youth. For every avatar of Vishnu that came to earth and avatar of Shesha also came to continue supporting and protecting his lord. Parallels are commonly made between Ram and his brother Laxman. It’s said they were born as a boon from Vishnu to Lord Indra to defeat the demon king Kamsa, king of Mathura. Vishnu took one white and one black hair from his head and promised they would complete the mission. The two brothers had contrasting complexions: Balarama was pale and white while Krishna was dark, black. Balarama dresses in blue garments which were given to him by Laxmi after he changed the course of the Yamuna river. 

His story mimics the biblical story of Sirius killing the children in order to avoid the curse of being killed by one of them. In this case, his mother’s brother was told he would be killed by her 8th child. He had smashed the first 6 newborns on the stone when Vishnu intervened and moved the foetus to the belly of Vasudeva’s first wife, Rohini. Balarama is sometimes called Sankarshana: the one who was dragged away. In the Bhagavata Purana, the great Lord says, “The whole of Shesha, which is my abode, will become the embryo in Devenki’s womb which will be transplanted in Rohini’s womb.” He grew up with his step mother and her family, including his younger brother, Krishna, caring for the cow. Farmers follow his instructions. Krishna cared for the livestock and Balarama ploughed the land. 

He killed Dhenuka: an asura sent by his fearful uncle intent on provoking his fate. 

He killed Pralamba who joined in a jumping contest with the condition that the loser would have to carry the winner on his back. Pralamba lost and started to carry Balarama around before reverting back to his true form as a much larger Asura and tried to run off with Balarama. Krishna stopped him and challenged him to suspend his powers to give a fair fight. Balaram, still holding onto his back bashed his head in. 

Chanura & Mushtika were two wrestlers sent by King Kamsa to kill the two brothers. Krishna defeated Chanura and Balarama defeated Mushtika. Then Krishna fulfilled the prophecy by killing Kamsa. Kamsa’s brother was upset by this and attacked but Balarama easily finished him. He was with Kishna through many of his adventures: they defeated Panchjana at the bottom of the ocean and Yama in his underworld to get their guru, Sage Sandipani’s son back to the world of the living. 

He once drunkenly insisted that Yamuna come to him so that he could take a holy dip in her waters. When she refused he became angry and used his plough to cut a course for Vrindavan with the goddess following along behind pleading for mercy.  

Defeated demons: He used his plough to lead the Yamuna past Vrindavan to pull the capital Hastinapur into Ganga. 

In the Mahabharata he taught Duryodhana & Bhima the art of using the mace. He remained neutral when war broke out. He instead went on pilgrimage with his nephew Pradtumna and some other farmers. He returned only on the last day to witness the fight between his two students. He threatened to kill Bhima when he won by striking Duryodhana in the thigh which he had exposed to Draupadi.  

He was later involved in the Yadava civil war in which they were all destroyed. He sat near a tree, went into meditation and died. A white snake came out of his mouth and returned to the underworld.

He appears on coins dated from 185 – 170 BCE with Vasudeva-Krishna on the other side. 

Harmes

Hermes

was this day that President Nixon announced various measures to combat inflation & unemployment. He announced price and wage freezes as well as a suspension of the ability for investors to convert American dollars into gold. This “temporary” measure has never been reversed.

Ashlesha Association

We find the Mercury rulership heavily referenced here. Ashlesha is associated with rhetoric, and meeting with the enemy to negotiate a common goal, a peace, a truce in which the parties do not necessarily agree or even like each other, but on the face of things there is peace. But there may also be backstabbing and treachery at every opportunity. 

Stars of Ashlesha

Hydra: 

Six stars that make up a circle in the constellation of Cancer. A female water snake monster that Hercules was sent to kill. A small fresh water organism with regenerative potential that makes it seem as if it does not die of old age. Impervious to ageing. 

Hercules had to undergo 12 Labours as penance for killing his own family. He went crazy for a while first. The 2nd labour was to kill the Hydra, the two-headed, two-tailed water snake living in a lake at the entrance to the underworld. Her breath and blood and odour were toxic and poisonous.  Hercules covered his mouth and nose to protect himself from the toxic fumes. Hydra had regenerative potential, allowing two heads to grow back every time one was chopped off. Hercules had to use the flaming sword to chop the head and burn the neck in order to kill the Hydra. Hercules may have had help from his cousin Lolaus who cauterised the neck after Hercules chopped off the head. He may have used a golden sword gifted to him by Athena to cut off the last head. Hera, who had created the Hydra to kill Hercules, sent the crab to help Hydra but Hercules killed both beasts. After he killed the Hydra he put the body under a rock that still spews toxic gas till this day. He dipped his arrows in the blood to make them poison and used that poison to kill later foes. One river is said to still be polluted from the poison on Hercules’ arrow. 

The moral of this story relates with our unquenchable desires, when one is satisfied two grow up in its place. We need to put limits on our desires. There is also the hopelessness of falling back two steps for every one gained. 

Much of the Hercules story is driven by his step mother Hera who was angry over the many infidelities of her husband. She was especially jealous of Hercules, whose name means: the great gift of Hera. She had sent two snakes to kill him when he was a baby but he caught them and crushed them in his hands. She sent many beasts to kill him but was always unable. There’s a sense that the hero has become a hero because a lifetime of heroics was offered up to him from early in his life. He later got married and settled down, but Hera was still jealous of his happy life. She made him go crazy and he killed his wife and family while he was in an inebriated state. When he came to his senses he went to the Oracle of Delphi to ask what penance he might complete to earn redemption. He was told to see the king to get the ten labours. His victory over Hydra was considered null and void because he did not do it alone but was helped by his cousin. 

When he later used the Hydra poisoned arrows to kill the Centaur, a robe was dipped in the centaurs blood believing it to be love potions. But after some time the poison started to burn and fused the robe to his skin so that when he tore off the robe, he tore off his own skin. He eventually threw himself in a funeral fire to escape the pain and torment of the poison. 

Trees of Ashlesha

Nagkesar Tree: Mesua Ferrea

A slow growing tree that grows up to 30 meters tall and 2 m in diameter. It’s a hard and heavy wood. The flowers are bisexual and the fruit will usually contains one or two seeds. Nagkesar oil is used for haemorrhoids and piles. Ayurveda classifies it as astringent, bitter; light, dry. It promotes coldness and its post digestive effect is pungent.

Nag Champa:

Michelia champa, yellow champa, golden champa

Beautiful fragrant flowers that bloom May – October. They are easy to grow and maintain. A shallow root system allows them to be grown in pots, though in ideal situations they can grow to 30 metres. They love light and  They will only bloom once in two or three years unless the flower is removed before going to fruit as they use excessive energy to grow seeds.

Oil can be extracted from the flowers which is good for rheumatism, eye trouble and gout. Burning nag champa can be a good general remedy for Ashlesha people. The wood is good for cabinets and for burning.

Health: 

Joints, nails, ears

  • Stomach problems, food poisoning, worms, obesity, poor diet, 
  • Liver problems related to addiction or poisoning from chemical or natural  pollution from air, land, and water. 
  • STD due to promiscuity
  • Arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis 
  • Platelets and blood clotting
  • Nervous disordersNo peace of mind, active mind
  • Organic mercury (ruled by Ashlesha) can trigger autoimmune disease 
  • Blockage, clots, bi-polar.
  • Antibodies & antibiotics
  • Bacteria (See Sahtabhisha for the 1000 star blossoms and viruses. See also the shape of white blood cells).
  • Bacteria, worms, maggots. Infection
  • Hearing problems
Close up of bacteria

Bacteria & Water Born disease

Bacteria causes many diseases in humans: cholera, pneumonia, influenza. Tuberculosis, measles, typhoid, malaria, legionnaire’s disease, anthrax, meningitis, dysentery. Some other water born diseases are likely to be related to Ashlesha as well: giardia, e coli, Hep A, samonella,

Snake Venom

Snake venom is a complex mix of proteins, enzymes, peptides, carbohydrates, lipids, metal ions, and organic compounds.

    • Cytotoxins, which cause necrosis, a complete breakdown of organic tissue, cells, and organs. Different types of cytotoxin target different cells in the body, meaning that while some target the heart, others target muscular tissue.
    • Neurotoxins, which disrupt and block neurotransmitters, lead to organs shutting down, paralysis, and respiratory distress. Different neurotoxins block different neurotransmitters.
    • Hemotoxins, which target the red blood cells and cause organ damage and tissue death via either causing blood to clot and prevent blood circulation in the body or by causing internal bleeding and haemorrhaging.

Immunity is usually developed after a long time of repeated exposure to small but increasing quantities of poison.  We can use a similar method for overcoming traumas a fears by allowing ourselves to be subjected to our triggers while in a safe space where we can practice non-reactivity.

Hearing loss

Caused by damage to the Cochlea in the ear. Often described like a snail, it also appears like a coiled snake. The hairs on the cochlea are what pick up the sound through their special sensitivity to vibration. Those sounds are then turned into nerve impulses which are processes in the brain. 

The cochlea is filled with two different kinds of fluids, one is a unique composition of endolymph. It’s very rich in potassium (150mM), very poor in sodium (1mM) and almost completely lacking in calcium (20-30 µM). This is not found anywhere else inside the body. The other fluid is common. There seems also to be a connection between dehydration and hearing loss which may be related to the potassium levels suggesting that ashlesha has something to do with potassium.

Auditory information first goes to the brain stem where a decoding of basic signals such as duration, intensity and frequency takes place. Other parts of the brain help us to understand where the sound came from. The thalamus, at the base of the cerebrum, then gets involved in preparing us to respond vocally. The last neuron of the primary auditory pathway connects the thalamus with the auditory cortex. At this stage the message has already been largely decoded. However, in the auditory cortex the signal is moreover recognised, memorised and may eventually result in a response.

Hearing aids or cochlear implants may be used to correct hearing problems related to the cochlea. I suspect the ear drum has some relationship with Dhanishta, but we will look into that side of hearing when we discuss that nakshatra. 

Good and Evil in the Brain

The para-limbic system is a “behaviour circuit” responsible for processing emotions of the brain, including the amygdala and pre-frontal cortex.

R – Complex: the most ancient part of our brain relating to reptiles: insight, intuition, perception, wisdom, cunning, concentration and sexuality. 

Cancer represents the Breast

Ashlehsa: The dual use of the breast. To nurture and provide temptation. Ashlesha is all about covering things up. It’s the trap that women set with their breasts and their cleavage. It’s the atmosphere of sexuality that creeps into relationships between men and women. Ashesha is the sexuality of the breast which is like playing with snakes. This is the dangerous game of sexuality that starts with the puffing of the chest by both sexes. It’s primordial, from our reptilian brain, and it’s a huge problem that we have to contend with. We have to learn how to tame this snake and keep and eye on it knowing that it can come out of its hole at any time. Again, self control in the midst of some of our strongest longing.    

Fluids related to movement and fluids which keep relay messages (Cancer/Mercury). To register vibration in the cochlea, to allow free movement of the joints, messenger hormones, the fluids which conduct electricity in the body (though these might relate to Indra in Jyeshta).

Pushya: Practical use of the breast to nurture and provide protection, in the way we hug to touch chests or hold a child to our chest. Of course there is also the milk and nipple; the little flower on top. 

Punarvasu: The fat of the breast. Fluids that provide protection. The emotional memories involved with bonding

Remedies

Due to the high stress nature of these people’s lives it will do them well to practice somewhat more intense and stressful yogic or self improvement techniques. The trick is to use breathing or other relatively safe methods to induce a stress response throughout which we try to remain at peace. Polar bear swims do this when the ice cold water shocks the body but we remain calm and controlled. Many of the Wim Hof practices work with the stress response in this way.  

This works in much the same way as the immune system. As we are introduced to our enemies more and more and in relatively benign circumstances we are more capable of defending ourselves in the case of an attack. 

Exposition

Like a snake they can be sensual and seductive using their underground knowledge in deceptive, cold-blooded ways to lure people in in order to feel safe and comfortable.  They will use people to carry out an agenda, emotionally entwining them until their goals are achieved, at which point they will coldly walk away; until their next victim comes along completely unaware of what is lurking in the grass..

They do well in any field related to drugs and medicines and they can often blur the line between the two using poison and medicine and medicine as poison. Doctors, pharmacists, drug dealers, chemists all relate to the poisonous qualities of Ashlesha, but so do petrochemicals, cigarettes, and many of the other poisons we use on a daily basis. 

Their connection to the underground can just as easily relate them with criminal organisations, prostitution, sexuality, and gambling as it can to astrology, tantra, occult and black magic. They will like to move in the dark or undercover or in deceptive ways which makes them suited for spying, or other kinds of undercover work. 

They can be suspicious bordering on paranoia. Heavy afflicting in Ashlesha can bring on Schizophrenic episodes. Lots of emotional manipulation is usually present in a person’s life and they can be very selfish and sexually promiscuous.

They may have a connection with snakes or reptiles themselves: owning them, selling them, catching them, caring for them.  They may be snake charmers both figuratively and literally. A forked tongue, hypnotic eyes and emotional manipulation can be very effective in many fields where fakes and cheaters are common: law and politics, occultists, channellers, fake psychics and even yoga teachers may all be happy to gain from the suffering and misfortune of others. They can be vicious opportunists.

Pada 2 (Cancer + Mercury + Capricorn): The most manipulative pada, they can be very cunning and cruel in their quest for power and status. They will not hesitate to deceive others to get what they want. They can be very possessive in their relationship and their things. “What’s mine is mine” (and sometimes what’s yours is mine too if they can find a loop hole.

Pada 4 (Cancer + Mercury + Pisces) Mars is debilitated at 28 degrees here. Ghandanta pada.  Watery moon does well in Jupiter’s pada. They may be involved with private schools or private tutors. They are less likely to be the manipulative one in relationships and they may end up as therapists or advisors in some capacity. They often do well in providing safe private space for others, possibly in the hotel or resort business, in drug rehabilitation, or perhaps even studio, office or lab space, 

Planets In Ashlesha

Ascendant:
Energy Body by Alice Bailey

For the most part this Ascendant gives thin lithe bodies like a snake, quick movements and coordination thru most of their lives.  There seems to be a pattern of weight gain later in life (often related with stomach or intestinal problems. They are good fighters, dancers and athletes. They are deadly diplomates and very good politicians. They excel and deception, baiting the enemy and deception. Some of them are directly associated with magic, black magic, kundalini and at least a few that are not directly connected with this kind of thing tend to at least keep some kind of lucky charm or believe in superstition and astrology. 

As the ascendant lord we see the snake like characteristics most clearly in their body and personality. They do well in high pressure situations and often live high stress lifestyles. Several NHL goaltenders appear on this list. I’m sure this speaks for their coordination as well as reminding us of the function of the immune system defending against attack.

Many of these people have a knack for using peoples words or actions against them in the way the Stephen Seagal uses an opponents momentum against him in Aikido.

Otto von Bismark’s Walking Stick

Edward Smyth-Osbourn is a highly trained NATO commander who will receive the Golden Stick (Hermes staff) from the queen upon retirement marking him as one of the most trusted and capable royal guards. It’s interesting that the goaltenders also hold a kind of stick that makes them immune from much the violent side of hockey as well. Hitler had a walking stick that he used to climb 13 mountains in Europe. Marylin Monroe was famous for her lip stick. Thomas Jefferson used an ivory walking stick and Otto von Bismark also carried a lovely walking stick with him. IO’m siure there are more examples

“Dance like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” ~ Mohammad Ali

There are a couple of exceptions to the rule of thinness with this nakshatra. Many Ashlesha natives tend to put on weight later in life which may be the result of stomach/digestive problems. Michael Moore has Moon, Mars and Rahu together in 6th house with Saturn aspecting so severe stomach problems and probably surgical procedures are likely.  Anita Dzus likewise has stomach problems which seem to be hereditary.

Sun

They spot light puts them in a tight position and they tend to express themselves in a do or die fashion. Many of these folks have either been in trouble from the law or have had to undergo detox and/or rehab. Martin Sheen, Martha Stewart, Doc Holliday, Larry Nassar. They are for the most part manipulative and insincere. George Soros uses slogans of democracy and freedom to cause regime change that is typically worse than what was there before. Maxine Waters is famous for race-baiting.  India has the threat of riot and war hanging over its head since independence agreements poisoned the well of unity. Castro faced numerous assassination attempts from America.  They all seem to have some imminent threat hanging over them.

Mars

Mars is debilitated in Ashlesha. Mars typically weaponises the emotional manipulation in Ashlesha. It can be good for activism, environmental protection and occasionally for police officers and military who do a lot of dirty work, but this Mars usually causes many problems in a person’s personal life. 

This position reminds me of the stories of baby Hermes when he went out to steal his brother’s cattle. You used every kind of deceit and trickery along the way in order to avoid being caught, he even bribed an old shepherd to keep quiet and then, knowing that deceit lies everywhere, returned in disguise to test the power of his original bribe with a new one. He killed the greedy old man knowing that the same greed was in his own heart. When he was caught by the divine vision of his family he continued to plead his innocence appealing to his state as an infant he is said to have naively inquired: “What are cows?” It’s very difficult to trust these people because the will time and again weaponise emotions, and resort to the worst kinds of deceit and trickery to cover up their original sin.

It’s interesting that Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido has his moon here while and his most famous student, Steven Seagal has his ascendant here. much of the training they do involves working with the force of the opponent. The role of Mars is to weaponise whatever he touches and in this case we find them weaponising whatever differences already exist. Language and rhetoric can be quite vicious with this placement as they seek to manipulate whatever they can for their own advantage. They never want to let go of anything that they believe is theirs.

Venus:
King Francis I France gifted this pillar to the Ottoman Turks as a symbol of good faith diplomacy. The salamander was his personal emblem along with the motto Nutrisco et extinguo (“Nourish and extinguish.”)

Difficult love life, unable to maintain boundaries. Will often get entangled in affairs. They may like an element of the mystery of the unknown to their relationships and it’s likely that there will be some dark secret between partners. You could say this for relationships with women generally so women may experience this kind of energy with women. It can be very “catty” and big crowds of women will feel like being in a snake pit. Women are likely to use their sexuality in a dangerous provocative way. But love, beauty, art, harmonious agreements, and marriage will be used as a diplomatic measure to get inside the enemy camp. But the danger is that one might just fall in love with the enemy. Enemy can be a strong word, it can relate with getting involved with people who are of a different caste or culture as they seek to bring opposites together. Their love life will be very intense. Men with this will get involved with the “femme fetale.”  But this can also promote durable, though troubled, relationships. They can see the beauty of the entanglement, they become possessed by the intensity and the danger lurking everywhere. There are likely to be secrets, whispers and perhaps unproven allegations about your relationships as well. 

We find this position connected to people and events with some of the most intriguing “conspiracy theories” & “cover up theories” swirling around them. Alan Pinkerton, the first private detective in the USA literally has the Pinkerton Liability Doctrine named after him. This doctrine literally defines the scope of liability in crimes of criminal conspiracy. Edward Snowden  gained mass appeal by uncovering mass undercover surveillance programs, but now anyone who talks about him or his contribution as a whistleblower is relegated as a conspiracy theorist. However in this case we can also see how he has received mass appreciation for his bravery. And what about Michael Jackson who is the king of pop, but also the king of the gossip column when it comes to his sex life? We can also see how he projects this snake like image. I’m not sure if we could find out how many of these people incorporate snake skin into their fashion and style; it seems like a reasonable proposition. (Perhaps those who have this position can let me know?). 

George Orwell is perhaps the king when it comes to warning the world about the creeping threat of the conspiracy upon which all others are founded. He reminds us that the government is not our friend, of course we have to work with it, but it’s a toxic relationship. Whenever the government tells us that it’s for our own good, we can know for certain that it is for their own good, not ours. One interesting thing about Venus in Ashlesha is that relatively few people (in my data bank) seem to have this placement. 

George Bush has the distinction of being at the centre of the 9/11 conspiracy and sloppy cover up. Venus is really good at diplomacy, but she is also really good at wearing a mask. She is the guru of the illusive forces so she can do very well in Ashlesha, it just might be a really intense ride. This placement essentially charges the whole atmosphere with Ashlesha in some way. Even Sylvester Stallone clearly had a love of the image of being behind enemy lines. Or an enemy from within like Larry Nassar, a poison in women’s gymnastics in the USA. And of course we all know that Peter Smith’s Artificial Intelligence is a double edged sword. As I was about to discuss Indian politics which is rife with backbiting and corruption, it also occurred to me that their National Emblem (or Coat of Arms) is the Ashoka Pillar; a pillar of peace and diplomacy (attained by first viciously conquering other lands.) It is also printed on the Rupee and has appeared on stamps to remind us of some other Ashlesha areas we can consider for this placement. The 9/11 twin-towers also stool like pillars. And of course there are the rumours of those pillars in the basement. I have no doubt they have stamps and currency with them on it as well.

Saturn:

Duty to teach, nurture, heal by removing the poison or using poison as a means of healing. They are often self medicated in some way, tactless and may not take criticism well. They may work underground, possibly in the sewers and also have underground knowledge of astrology, tantra or the occult. Saturn in Ashlesha in 9th house with aspects from Venus is good for astrology, underground guru (not a popular one). Malefic influence can cause misuse of the knowledge. Saturn with malefic influence can make the mother poison somehow.  Saturn with Venus or Jupiter can make a medicine man.

I can speak of my own experience with Saturn in Ashlesha 9th house. This Saturn rules my 4th house so I’ve always been nomadic and may home has often been supplied by my employer, I’ve mostly lived near water. My higher education was delayed for work and my work involved trenching and piping. My stick in those days would have been a seven foot steel crowbar and perhaps the shovel. I’ve worked in sewer, washed dished, and don’t some fishing in my life; many dangerous jobs, underground and sometimes under the table. I grew up fishing; baiting hooks and baiting traps. This Saturn is 2nd from my moon so my mothers family is fairly solid working class family and mother was also a bit older. I eventually went to university and studied languages, communications logic and rhetoric; and all those topics so beloved by Mercury.  This calculating mind eventually turned to astrology. Then there’s the spiritual aspect of this placement in 9th house which has turned my beliefs very conservative and old fashioned. I live mostly in Varanasi now which provides the wet filth of Saturn in Ashlesha while the 9th house gives me a spiritual of philosophical setting; it’s kinda like living in a big ashram with no rules. Moon, the ruler of my 9th house goes into the 8th house highlighting research and Tantra; while Mercury, the ruler of Ashlesha goes into Sagitarius highlighting my humanistic philosophical side. I have also studied several holistic healing methods. It could be mentioned that my mother was a forensic psych. nurse and I grew up studying her text books. All of which has a strong influence of Ashlesha.  This Saturn in 12th gives strong powers of renunciations, sacrifice, and fortitude; cold comforts.

Saturn in Ashlesha reflects the simple blue collar working class culture and rhythms. people get a lot of experience being in a tight spot. 

House is usually old and there may be water problems, leaks, humidity , black mould, sewer blockage. They have to spend considerable time and effort for upkeep and maintenance. They are caretakers of the home and the land in so many ways.

 

Frederick the Great inspects the potato harvest

Frederick the Great who has Saturn in Ashlesha with the Moon conjunct and Mars aspecting set out to tame or conquer nature. He set upon a massive project of land reclamation, draining swamps and building canals   once told Voltaire that, “Whoever improves the soil, cultivates land lying waste and drains swamps, is making conquests from barbarism.” Although this had a huge tole on the natural landscape (which puts me in mind of the story Rama war against Taksha the serpent mother) he also had a great love for nature, plants and animals. He didn’t like hunting and set up the first veterinary hospital; he didn’t even wears because he saw it the same as having someone stick a fork in your belly. He was very much a man of two natures who could care for his home while destroying his enemies. It should be noted that he was also known as the “Potato King” for introducing them to the region. The other things we find with Ashlesha placements is architecture. Louis XIV with Venus in Ashlesha built grand and beautiful palaces while Frederick the Great with Saturn here saw the home and the land in a much more pragmatic way. Though culture was important to him and he also revived the Opera, the libraries, sculpture, and the fine arts, as well as the sciences and mathematics.

He became increasingly solitary later in life preferring to spend time with animals than people. By his late 60’s he was suffering from asthma, gout and other ailments but he continued to rise before dawn, drank six to eight cups of coffee a day, “laced with mustard and peppercorns”, and attended to the affairs of the nation. 

They can be immune to fear and hard living and be very self controlled.  They have simple habits, but they can become very set in those habits; this can of course include addictive habits.  This Saturn in Ashlesha also contributes to kidney problems  and hearing deficiency.  

Charlie Chaplin played the working man and Schwarzenegger appeals to the working class masses. Connection with the 4th house will give a spartan home. Saint Francis Assisi exemplified this with his ascendant lord Saturn in Ashlesha; and we need to consider what the working class community was like. Hearing trouble is common with this placement though it may not come until later in life. “Thick skin.” It may also be related to kidney trouble, as it hardens and dries some of the watery cavities; which is a dictum that we can extend to the other body parts depending on the placement of this. This Saturn in the 12th house might make them dream of a simple life and possibly take long trips to watery places . In the 9th house he might create a work to live scenario offering some kind of service for a place to live. I’ve seen this even in the charts of wealthy people. They are very likely to take a long pilgrimage to watery places or places associated with snakes.

Rahu:

Jordan Peterson‘s fascination with snakes led him to study the totalitarian governments and then through the practice of clinical psychology to try to understand evil; pointing out along the way that we all have some of it inside of ourselves and highlighting how we have to meet with it and get to know it and try to control it. But his ashlesha keeps rising up in the form of addiction. Much of what he talks about concerns this tug of war between good and evil and the churning of the ocean. His Rahu Venus in 3rd house cancer he believes to be “the antidote for chaos,” his Saturn Ketu in Capricorn 9th house. Venus is of course the guru of the demons, especially Rahu and Ketu. He gets appreciation for his communications and media messaging. He has a strong focus on the free will side of things and seems to feel defeated over the things in life he cannot change. We should note that his common message that a person should “clean their own room” before trying to change the world is often criticised as being hypocritical since his own life is not all that clean. 

John Milton has God tell the angel Raphael to go and speak with Adam (and Eve). half this day as friend with friend

“Converse with Adam, […]

and such discourse bring on,

As may advise him of his happie state,

Happiness in his power left free to will,

Left to his own free Will, his Will though free,

Yet mutable; whence warne him to beware

He swerve not too secure: tell him withall

His danger, and from whom, what enemie

Late falln himself from Heav’n, is plotting now

The fall of others from like state of bliss;

By violence, no, for that shall be withstood,

But by deceit and lies; this let him know,

Lest wilfully transgressing he pretend

Surprisal, unadmonisht, unforewarnd.”

Ketu

They have little privacy and there are few boundaries when they get a little bit of it at random times. Ashlehsa suggests being covered, not buried very deep, everyone knows what’s going on, but it remains covered. Ketu here suggests that on one hand their whole lives might be a lie with one cover up after another; while on the other hand they aren’t really covering anything up at all. Ketu is without boundaries, suggesting Ketu in ashlesha leaks like a sieve.  

Julian Assange, King Louis XVII of France, Ingrid Bergman, Pattabhi Jois, Vitali Klitschko (Mayor of Kyiv), Elon Musk, Princess Maxima of Netherlands, Ma Huateng, Winona Ryder, Adam Segwick, all have the benefic Jupiter aspecting Ketu suggesting that Jupiter can help smooth things over in regard to this placement. It no doubt relates to some kind of hidden wealth related to this position. They will likely have wisdom about the dark arts, surveillance and counter surveillance, plots and schemes but tend to use this in a more benevolent manner. I should point out that King Louis XVII was the small son of Louis the XVI who infamously met his fate at the guillotine. Louis the XVII only lived until about the age of ten and spent the last half of his life imprisoned. 

There can be no shame with this Ketu placement as he removes the boundaries of decency, good taste and culture. He can be ambivalent about culture or negate it altogether. Ashlesha is already in the darker corners of the home where the snakes and the rats live, it’s easy to see how Ketu can bring hauntings into the house. Something my teacher called unconscious samskaras and suggested I ignore them when they came up. Many of these people have left ghost stories in their wake or even became ghosts themselves. Walls were no longer a boundary. This can be a very ungrounded position. There may be figurative or literal snakes or rats in the home or within your personal boundaries. This will be the same whether you’re a geologist doing field work, or Emma Watson getting lasciviously glared at, Jefferey Epstein doing anything, Clive Barker writing a story, Nixon announcing the end of the gold standard. Anyways, that’s just the way things are with Ketu. He’s not really paying attention until all is lost, and then there could come great grief.   

 

“When we’ve got these people who have practically limitless powers within a society, if they get a pass without so much as a slap on the wrist, what example does that set for the next group of officials that come into power? To push the lines a little bit further, a little bit further, a little bit further, and we’ll realize that we’re no longer citizens – we’re subjects.”

― Edward Snowden

This quote comes from Emma Watson but it shows a lack of concern over the clothing that covers her. This could translate into revealing see through clothing or nudity as we,  but here we merely find an ambivalence about the look of what covers us. “Wearing unbranded cheap clothes does not mean you’re poor, remember you have a family to feed, not a community to impress.” ~ Emma Watson ~

 

And then we find Princess Maxima of the Netherlands discussing culture in negative terms; not necessarily in a bad way, she just negates the idea of a solid culture and suggests that culture is more like a ghost which is there, but not there. “… ‘the’ Dutch identity? No, I have not found it. The Netherlands is: large windows without curtains so everyone can look in; but also adherence to privacy and coziness. The Netherlands is: one biscuit at tea; but also great hospitality and warmth. The Netherlands is: sobriety, control and pragmatism; but also the experience of intense emotions together. The Netherlands is far too diverse to summarize in one cliché. ‘The’ Dutchman does not exist. As a consolation I can tell you that ‘the’ Argentinian also does not exist. I therefore find it very interesting that the title of the report of the Scientific Council for Government Policy is not ‘the Dutch identity’. But: Identification with the Netherlands. That leaves room for development and diversity.” ~Princess Maxima of Netherlands~

Case Studies

Cheryl Crow (Rahu Ashlesha): sleep  paralysis.

Elon Musk – Ketu in Ashlehsa

Elon Musk’s Vedic Astrology chart

Elon Musk has this Ketu in his 2nd house highlighting the volatility of his liquid assets. During his Mars-Ketu period in 2010 he put up all the cash he had ($36 million) to keep Tesla afloat. Although he’s one of the richest people in the world he had to take personal loans from friends so that he would have some liquid cash for day to day living.  Ashlesha ensured that although he’s rich all his money is tied up in stocks and investments. Actually, his second house is completely destroyed from aspects by Saturn and Mars as well. This is not what one would expect from one of the richest people in the world, but I get the sense that if him I and I went for coffee that I would have to buy it for him. This is the strange manipulation of reality caused by Ketu in Ashlesha.  He is also a well known proponent of crypto-currenty and block-chain technology both of which are strongly tied with both Ketu and Ashlesha. He was also co founder of PayPal. Ketu really broke all the boundaries of currency and accounting for the movement of money around the world. Part of the reason for this extra-ordinary influence in this regard is that the lord of Ashlesha is powerfully situated in Punarvasu/Gemini in the first house.  In many ways he is Hermes/Mercury/Buddha Incarnate. 

His speech is also very unique. He speaks very quickly stringing his words together without proper intonation. Some have called it cluttered speech. It’s just like his brain is moving too fast. He has also been accused of saying inappropriate things, and his words have a strong effect on the stock prices of crypto and tesla. He has also been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome

Asperger’s in a genetic disorder 2nd house. The Man it’s named after, Hans Asperger, had Rahu in Ashlesha and possibly in his ascendant but rectification work needs to be done.  One of the interesting things we find with Asperger’s is that they love animals including the creepy-crawly one. They just don’t have the same fear mechanisms the rest of us do.

Much of his focus in life and the technology that he pursues is to protect the environment with a focus on reducing the carbon foot print. He has invested and supported solar power, Tesla is focused on electric cars, other projects focus on high speed rail tubes. And then there are his projects in Artificial Intelligence, Space travel and rockets. Mercury is in Punarvasu and Ketu has taken away his limits in regard to reaching other worlds with rockets.

And the connection is not clear to me, but it seems reasonable that Ketu in Ashlesha may have had something to do with the death of his first child at 10 weeks old by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and this seems so much like a snake getting into the crib (which of course a western reference to parts of the Hydra asterism).

Caravaggio (Mars & Rahu in Ashlesha)

The Grace of Madonna – Madonna-dei-Palafrenieri – Caravaggio 1605-1606

Many of Caravaggio’s painting were controversial for brutality and gore. Heads being chopped off with realistic emotional impact. And of course these kinds of things will get highlighted with vicious planets like Mars and Rahu here.  But he offers us a glimpse of another side of Ashlesha thru his paintings of Saint Matthew, the patron saint of accountants, moneychangers, tax collectors and customs officers. He was also invoked to help alcoholics with their habits.  It’s interesting how the wings of the angel are evocative of the Caduceus as well as the other symbols of Hermes.

Emotionally he was a violent, quarrelsome man. He was forced to flee his home and go underground in 1606 after killing a man an a duel over a romantic interest. Despite little being known about him it’s said that he was always fighting. There is much mystery over his death but it’s believed that he may have died from an infection from a wound received in one of these fights.  One of the dangers of being an artist during the renaissance is toxic exposure to the lead in the paint. The effect of this was a kind of madness or raving lunacy in sever cases.

Saint Matthew and the Angel – Caravaggio

His underground sex life has been the subject of much speculation. He never settled down or got married or had any children that are known of. He was known to have frequent prostitutes and and there is much speculation about homosexuality in a culture and time when sodomy was considered a capital offence. He never painted a single nude of a woman but did paint various voluptuous and sensual young men.

In1606 he was sentenced to beheading and had a bounty put on his head for the castration and killing of a mafia pimp.  He travelled around for several years sequin protection under powerful patrons, but by July 1610, at the age of 38, he was dead.

Saturn is yoga karaka planet in a powerful mutual exchange with the Moon and forming a Raja yoga in the 10th house of career with Mars. All of this is very good for her career and likely gave her diplomatic immunity, but her career house is also 6th from the moon  highlighting wars, criminal conspiracies and coverups.

Most of her career has been based on fear campaigns: weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons, biological weapons. But as she instills fear from these things she is also involved in the greatest proliferations of weapons of mass destruction anywhere. the most toxic aspect of this is perhaps the weaponisation of culture itself. Some might even say that she has led in the destruction of the nuclear family while claiming to be a nuclear family themselves. Her appeal was mostly for the middle class and blue collar workers and she’s well known for these kinds of roots. She lives in a $2.5 million house that’s almost 200 years old; oddly enough the address is #15 Old House Lane which is so Ashlesha. 

Early in her career she was involved in a cattle trading scandal (which again relates directly with the infant Hermes’ cattle thefts). Not much later she was involved in the Whitewater Controversy involving dodgy investments in land development. And then campaign donations being funneled thru the law firm she was working with. and the people close to the Clintons started dying in mysterious ways (and this hasn’t stopped, I think there are 16 names on the list now).  She has always been involved in the empowerment of young women and mothers working for gender equality and advocating education reform. Much of what America is facing today in their schools and universities; the free pass reforms to the criminal justice system all stem from Hillary Clinton’s early initiatives in these ares. Now that women’s rights or equality has basically been accomplished, she has moved to the next level of gender equality in the 21st century. All of this has been weaponised for power and control.  This is the aim of Ashlesha. Those on the spiritual path gain great inner power while those on the material plane can quickly become toxic as long term stability is sacrificed for short term goals.

June 1980 – June 1981 (Mercury / Mars): Whitewater controversy over banking and land fraud had just happened and during this period some of her enemies died in mysterious circumstances.

April 86 – Dec 88 (Mercury / Saturn): She was listed among 100  of the most influential lawyers. She sat on the board of the bar association to advocate for more women in law.  She was bring in wealthy corporate clients to the law firm. Her husband was governor and there was some controversy about some of the clients using the Law firm to give illegal political donation.

June 91 – Nov 91 (Ketu / Mars): She had just stepped down from practicing law and sat on the board of several companies learning about supply lines and unsuccessfully advocating for more environmentally friendly practices and more women at the corporate management level.  She had been considering running for Governor but the poles were not in her favour.

Nov 93 – Dec 94 (Ketu / Sat):  She became first lady.

Dec 2001 – Feb 2003 (Ven / Mars): She had just been elected tot he New York Senate after moving there the year before. She joined five senate committees all with some relations to Mars in Ashlesha:  budget; armed services; environment and public works; education, labour and pensions; ageing; and, security and cooperation with Europe. September 11  had just happened and in October she voted for the patriot act and the War against terrorism began with Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan (and about half a dozen other countries that got no notice).  By December she was already busy with war and weapons sales and by Oct 2001 she voted to go to war against Iraq after carrying on about fake WMD for the past year.  These campaigns have, of course, faced heavy criticism and the whole of 9/11 has become one of the grand conspiracy theories perhaps even greater than the assassination of JFK. Her husband also took 26 trips on Lolita express in this period.

Oct 2008 – Dec 2011 (Ven / Sat): The financial crisis of 2008. She supported the bailouts of the banks. In 2009 She became Secretary of State under Obama. She warned about possibly biological weapons coming out of the Wuhan Lab that year. It was also in this period when the personal email account was set up that caused her so much trouble latter.  But most of this period was spent on international diplomacy trying to “fix” relations with many countries which had been isolated by the Bush administration. She even offer a “great reset” in relationship with Russia (that quickly hit a snag when Putin returned to power). During this time she was also looking to allies to isolate Iraq with sanctions. while from one side of her mouth she was championing the case of women around the world, her policies were killing these same women. An interesting point with some relation to Saturn and Mars in Ashlesha was the biomass cook stoves she was seeking to install in the kitchen of the developed world as she was concerned about both the lack of affordable cooking fuel and the smoke inhalation that the poor underdeveloped women had to face.  She often tries to appear as an environmentalist and steward of the land while being heavily involved with the oil business as well as chemical and low yield nuclear weapons. By the end of this Saturn antardasha she went to Haiti after the earthquake there to ensure her man won the election. The Clinton Foundation has received heavy criticism for treating Haiti like a slave colony as well as for accepting donations from foreign countries while she was Secretary of State. Speaking of slaves, the Clintons are also involved in a program of hiring convicts as personal helpers and they are known to be very strict their servants; any small mistake will have them sent back tp prison.  Some have liked their treatment to these people as a form of indentured slavery.  Oh, and the Arab Spring protest also began in this period are are widely believed to be masterminded in a conspiracy between Clinton, Gates and Obama. And who can forget the Libyan civil war of 2011 which ended with Clinton saying: “We came, we saw, he died,” followed by her infamous cackling laugh.  The war in Syria was also just getting going in this year. By this point she seems to have become a James Bond Villain. At he very end of this period she began to campaign for gay rights saying: “Gay rights are human rights.” Western astrologers might note that she also has Pluto in Ashlesha assuring us that she is a force of revolution for the home culture.  Some others might consider that the Saturn Mars conjunction marks her as a toxic influence on the home culture and on government leadership.

Oct 2016 – Feb 2017 (Sun / Mars): Clinton’s aids who had been in charge of cleaning and deleting the files related to sending top secret e-mail from a private server all received immunity from prosecution.  This was a big controversy in the run up to the 2016 election which she lost. This would have also been the period when the fake Steele dossier against trump was being put together. A very cloak and dagger kind of time for her.  And just as it seemed this was all going to be behind her, the announcement came just before the election that there was a new investigation opening up over another set of emails that had been found.  This investigation continued until the Sun Saturn period when they announced that would not be pressing charges.

Oct 2018 – Oct 2019 (Sun / Saturn): Her immunity from prosecution over the e-mail scandal was confirmed. She was mostly campaigning against Trump calling him a threat to national security, a racist, misogynist, a white supremacist and an illegitimate president. Of course this was all going on while she had the FBI surveilling Donald Trumps election team and her democratic allies in the state department were investigating everything they could find or make up about Trump and his associates.

Oct 2022 – May 2023 (Moon / Mars): this could turn in to a war and the attack against Republicans could begin at this time. Mars typically bring her difficulties and powerful enemies. She may have to face a lawsuit and more accusations. Mars is also not very good for her health and surgical procedure might also be necessary (though this might be for her husband Bill). Jan 2023 looks like the date to remember for the fructification of these 10th house yoga’s and exchanges. It will likely be good for her, but not for anyone else.

These Mars periods never just happen on their own. The moon period that occurs before Mars typically opens the door to some shocking revelation in her career, Mars then is when she seeks to destroy her enemies by any means necessary. Which this kind of chart I do not doubt the Clinton kill list. In any case, after Mars comes Rahu who she has in her 8th house. This actually gives some similar results as Mars in Ashlesha: shady undercover work. This Rahu is also in the very elite 1st pada of Kritika anding up with an exalted Mars in her Navamsha giving her an incredibly powerful result for underground work and foreign wars.

March 2026 – Oct 2027 (Moon Saturn): I have heard speculation that Clinton might become leader in this period, but she will be 80 years old. Of course it’s not impossible, but considering that this yoga involves her 5th house, it might be more likely that her daughter enters politics or takes on a leadership position. But one thing is clear: the Saturn is deeply entrenched in politics.

Hillary Clinton health (keep in mind these are the official versions, she is very secretive about this).
