  • QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 82.

BPL commentary: For Azlesa nativities, nativities, the condition of Professor Budha considerably affects the outcome.

Siblings, neighbors, merchants, managers, collaborators, publishers, messengers, announcers, documents, signals, scripts, and texts may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from Hydra.

"Outstanding characteristic of these people

  • is their rather unpleasant and unsociable disposition.

They are awkward and gauche in their manners

  • and are not quick to profit by their mistakes

  • because of their inability to adapt themselves to their surroundings

  • and their apparent reluctance to be gracious or kind to others.

This attitude militates against success in life

  • and is a barrier to progress.

These people should live less introspectively

  • and learn to appreciate the good in other people.

They should cultivate the habit of doing things for others."

BPL comment

Mr. Ponde often repeats his particular aversion to Azlesa nativities. Yet whether male or female, Azlesa "the leash" produces many of the world's great writers, poets, and lyricists.

As well, Azlesa often show mastery of Budha-type manipulative skills including verbal acuity in public speaking, literary publishing, business administration, and handcraft. When twisted under emotional (Chandra) pressure, this handiness could become Azlesa's notorious squeezing, strangling, or extortion -- but rarely.

Azlesa are typically eccentric Budha-ruled creatures who are tightly focused on their information (choreography, lyrics, sequencing, plots, characters) ...

This feature of their mentality does not naturally parlay into unkindness or uncleanness ... only a rather grumpy intolerance for people and things irrelevant to their task.]
