An example of the Earth Mother, Goddess Aditi energy in a friend.
His Lagna, Moon and Jupiter are in Punarvasu.
Lagna and Jupiter are in Cancer in the 4th pada.
The Moon is in Gemini in the 1st pada.
1. Aditi is the deity of Punarvasu, the Earth Mother, Goddess of abundance.
It is a lucky, very auspicious naksatra.
The Moon, as well as the lagna lord (ruler of the rising sign; the lagna (rising sign) and Jupiter, the 6th and 9th lords, are in Punarvasu. This person inherited a large fortune from his very large family. Punarvasu themes are inheritance, big family, extended family. His grandfather founded a multinational consumer goods company (a Fortune 25 company now)
(not revealing the company to conceal his identity).
9th lord Jupiter signifies the father, fortune or bhagya; inheritance came from the father/paternal side of the family.
2. Aditi is the creatrix; the birthing goddess, mother-protector of all life forms. The native is a philanthropist and has supported numerous charities (his children) his whole life.He does not have children but he is a protector and supporter of the underclasses and underdogs of society.
3. Punar means again and vasu is the light.
“The return of the light”. Also renew, repeat, revitalize, restore, rejuvenate.
The first part of his life he was lost, restless, confused and angry. He had several addictions and recounts how dark his consciousness was in spite of the best education and every worldly desire fulfilled. Since lagna and lagna lord Moon are in Punarvasu the darkness is in his mind and intellect like Lord Rama’s long forest exile. A battle like the one Rama had with the vicious demon king, Ravana (ego), took place within him for many years.
Moon, in 12th house of moksha, in dharma pada made him high minded and philosophical but also self righteous, escapist and a conspiracy theorist.
Lagna in moksha pada made him a giver and spiritual seeker.
The native had a stroke that almost killed him (rebirth, rejuvenate, rehabilitate) that turned his life around. Jupiter is jiva karaka* – 6th lord of disease in the place of the head (lagna) in Punarvasu with sanjivani karaka** Venus and 8th lord of transformation Rahu.
* jiva karaka: significator of Life
** sanjivna karaka: the one who has the knowledge to bring the dead back to life.
4. Punarvasu is the womb of the Mother.
The native has a beautiful home, secluded in the woods with no neighbors around him. He spends most of his time there alone studying, meditating, brooding, like a hen hatching her chicks. His chicks are his ideas. He is a brilliant thinker who shares his carefully incubated ideas to anyone who will listen.
