Masculine Nativities

Chitra * Tvastri

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

BPL commentary:

For Chitra natives, the condition of pioneering Professor Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, champions, inventors, engineers, and competitors may be especially influential.

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."
