Jyeztha * Kita

  • QUOTATION: Shil-Ponde. Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 98

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.

"...independent self-sufficient , capable, dignified, proud.

  • If she is not born in a wealthy or well-to-do family, she will herself become wealthy through her own efforts.

In such case, her family will be dependent on her and she will be recognized as the head of the family .

  • She is careful and canny regarding money matters .

Being proud, she has a tendency to dramatize herself

  • and secretly glories in being the pivot or centre around which her family affairs revolve.

She will, at some time in her life,

  • occupy a very influential position

  • and be greatly respected."
