Feminine Nativity

Purvaphalguni * Yoni

BPL commentary:

For natives of Purvaphalguni * Yoni, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Zosma

Feminine births within a nakshatra of Zukra carry a special benevolence for music, beauty, treasuries, ornaments, design, and gracious relationships. Purvaphalguni women are often found in the worlds of politics, fashion, beauty, and musical theatre.
