Feminine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita

BPL commentary:

For Jyeztha nativities, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

Siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Guidance from instructors in the civilizations of Antares.

Budha-ruled Jyeztha ladies are typically outspoken, incisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. They maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Articulate and confident, they find a ready audience on topics of a hidden, undisclosed, or forbidden nature. Jyeztha women are also natural trauma healers. They wield a penetrating ability to explain complex human sexual and psychological narratives. They are often found in powerful messaging roles, where secret information is revealed by a skillful shifting of the interpretive lens, such as psychotherapy and recovery work, self-help writing, as teachers of other healers, and in intellectual realms of transformative critical response.

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

"...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 ."
