Uttarabhadrapada * Andromeda

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

BPL commentary:

For Uttarabhadrapada natives, the disposition of rigid, structured, chronological, lawful, enduring Shani may considerably affect the outcome.

Elder persons, old rules, rigid structures, and hierarchical officials may be especially influential.Guidance from the instructors of the civilizations of Andromeda.

"...most fortunate... usually indicates a man of means,

  • well-to-do if not wealthy.

A man who owns property and has the ability to earn money

  • and also to spend it wisely and constructively.

Being a passive type, his well-being may be inherited or bequeathed to him

  • but if he achieves his own success

  • he will do so without the corollary of someone else's misfortune .

He is very intelligent

  • and is charitable

and generous to those less fortunate than himself."

Feminine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita

  • QUOTATION: Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

BPL commentary:

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

Siblings, neighbors, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, merchants, reporters, writers, scripts, and texts may be especially influential.

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

"...independent self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

  • If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family, she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

  • She is careful and canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life,

  • occupy a very influential position

  • and be greatly respected."
