BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poets romantic lovers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of the Pleyades.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91

"... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please."
