QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 94
"... this person is careless and unclean about herself and the manner in which she dresses.
She has a secretive and rather bitter nature
If she cultivated kindness and tact,
But her attitude and appearance are not conducive to popularity."
