  • Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

BPL commentary: For Uttaraphalguni natives, the condition of Surya considerably affects the outcome

BPL commentary: although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

"A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."
