Feminine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a feminine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, 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.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlewomen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority often leading to impatience with those less quick-witted .

Articulate and pro-active in their messaging style, Jyeztha are often accomplished writers in literary genre ranging from autobiography to committee reports, Kita-born ladies find a ready audience on topics of a hidden, undisclosed, or forbidden nature. Jyeztha women are also natural trauma healers, investigative journalists, forensic scientists, and detectives.

Ketta-born ladies 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.

Due to nakshatrapathi Bantering Budha, the skills of Zakradaivata include all of the commercial fields plus psychotherapy and recovery work, self-help writing, and training of healers. Thriketta-born may also be found in the verbal realms of transformative criticism and promotion of mystical renewal.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeztha's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeztha-Kita

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."
