  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

BPL commentary: For Purvaphalguni natives, the condition of Zukra considerably affects the outcome

"A physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion .

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."
