BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from Pleyades.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 80

"A proud, dignified, and honorable person

  • - an executive type.

He is very ambitious and eager for power

  • and has the ability to achieve his desires.

He has an innate sense of the importance of his destiny.

He expects everything to come to him as his due

  • and usually gets what he sets out to obtain."

As a young man in Poland during WW-2, Father Wojtyla had a dramatic personal experience of injustice and terror; he often spoke of the monstrosity of the killings. Yet the Roman Catholic hierarchy chose not to protest the horrors of genocide and torture during the war or afterward, and Father Wojtyla chose not to lay blame but rather to continue to promulgate the stance of invisibility (12) and non-involvement. rogesha-6 Zukra crimes yuti Budha-yuti-Ketu the Witness.
