BPL commentary:

For Bharani natives, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Bhrigu considerably affects the outcome.

Feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, sensual pleasures, arrangements, valuation, pricing, equity, bargains, trades, treaties, trusts, adjustments, justice, finance, artistic beauty, treasuries, alignment, attunement, harmonies, and music, may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 79

"A very vital character,

  • a quality which quite often leads this individual into all sorts of trouble

  • because other people are apt to be jealous, resentful and antagonistic to him.

The morals of this man are not above reproach .

He will be distinguished in many cases by some slight physical defect

  • on the lower part of the body,

  • that is below the waist."
