BPL commentary:

For Visaka natives, the condition of prosperous, preaching, inclusive, broad-scope, philosophical, humanistic Brihaspati may considerably affect the outcome.

Teachers, preachers, professors, patrons, agents of generosity and guidance, guru-figures, ideologues, indoctrinators, theorists, know-it-alls, proselytes, philosophers, pontificators, patriarchs, pundits, pater-nosters, proponents of principled understanding, wise-ones, wizards, druids, and paradigms of belief may be especially influential.

Guided by patrons from the civilizations of Saka.

Guru-ruled Visaka gentlemen may be found on battlefields, in corporate boardrooms, at the strategic director level of organizations. They may also appear in therapeutic settings encouraging personal growth, doing scientific research with lightning, in botany working with roots and branches, as high-voltage electrical engineers, as shakti-pat spiritual guides, and in project development roles.

Visaka have a remarkable capacity for wide-scope vision (Guru). Their very-large-scale military skills are famed. Visaka's ultimate goal is to bring the combatants to the bargaining table, but there may be considerable carnage before a peace treaty becomes viable. In Visaka's view, the growth of understanding requires first a battle to blast out blockages, then the jubilant sending out of new shoots. Visaka can be short-tempered in their impatience to expand, and they seem to be always shooting or sending out feelers, tentacles, or branches.

Themes of shocking growth and widening, expansion via root-splitting, and development of understanding via electromagnetic shakti-lightning may contextualize Visaka's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Visaka

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 97.

"... Aggressiveness and impatience.

These people are overbearing in their desire to get things done.

They are very active but not popular,

  • since their manner causes people to actively dislike them

  • and to resent their extreme aggressiveness.

they are very proud

  • and because of this, they take offense easily at some fancied slight.

their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently.

they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character,

  • but such people will still remain enemies .

Tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop."
