Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

BPL commentary:

For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of pitrikaraka Professor Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians celebrities, dramatists, game-players, and persons of brilliant entitlement are especially influential.

Guidance from Denebola.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 95

"A joyous healthy disposition yet quietly so.

  • She has a very soft pleasing voice,

  • bubbling over with fun and humor.

She is born to a family with social background

and loves to mingle with her friends in various social activities

  • yet she is not frivolous,

  • but beneath her joyous manner, rather serious minded.

She has fixed principles from which she will not deviate.

She prefers to choose her friends

  • from among the people who are artistically inclined and cultured.

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."
