BPL commentary:

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

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

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

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

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

Post-war Revocation of Divine Status

Vimala Yoga cleared Hirohito of wrongdoing. Although many wanted Hirohito to be tried as a war criminal, USA General MacArthur made a bargain with the emperor that included a new Japanese constitution and the denouncement of imperial divinity.
