For nativities of Zra-vana * The Listener, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra considerably affects the outcome.

Mother-figures, protectors, guardians, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 86.

"An excellent character, the keynote of which is kind heartedness and generosity,

  • particularly to those less fortunate than himself.

This man will always be able to accumulate the good things of life

  • without injuring anyone else to do so.

He will be disposed to share his belongings with the poor and needy.

  • The extent of his activities in this direction,

  • will of course depend on his station in life.

Many social workers and philanthropists have Shravana rising.

He will also be very religious

  • and will participate in church activities

  • if his environment permits."
