BPL commentary:

For Swatika natives, the disposition of mesmerizing, hypnotic, shadowy, privilege-seeking Professor Rahu considerably affects the outcome.

Exotics, ethnic mixers, opportunists, fascinators, mesmerizers, privilege-seekers, impostors, agents of passion and desire, self-proclaimers, self-promoters, charlatans, masters of smoke and oils, and entrancingly ambitious persons may be especially influential.

Guided by the instructing intelligences of Arcturus

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84.

"... a slow and deliberative character,

  • almost ponderous in thought and action

  • yet intelligent and logical

While he may be slower at arriving at conclusions than most people,

  • on final analysis his reasoning is sound

  • and his conclusion more accurate than others who may be more brilliant.

He is very religious, somewhat orthodox,

  • and his environment permitting will attend church regularly

  • or at any rate participate in some religious activity.

Many priests or ministers are found to have Swati on the Rising Point."
