Jyeztha * Kita

BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. They maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Jyeztha men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and confident, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Regardless of their professional training, Jyeztha men are born psychologists. They are masters of verbal control and manipulation, and thus often found in politics. Jyeztha seek controlling power via financial and personal secrets, sexual intrigue, and dangerous liaisons. They may become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."
