Masculine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha births of a masculine valencee, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

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

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Jyeztha use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power. In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha

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."
