Masculine Nativities

Jyeztha * Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeztha births of a masculine 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 cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

Budha-ruled Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatrapathi Budha, often Jyeztha-born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power. In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

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

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

"A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."

"On 10 February 2006, Pavarotti sang "Nessun Dorma" at the 2006 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Turin, Italy, at his final performance. In the last act of the opening ceremony, his performance received the longest and loudest ovation of the night from the international crowd. Leone Magiera, who directed the performance, revealed in his 2008 memoirs, Pavarotti Visto da Vicino, that the performance was prerecorded weeks earlier.

Ketu-8 dissolution of inheritance, estate, testate

After death, the distribution of LP's estate became conflicted. His substantial investment portfolio (Rahu-2, the keep, capital assets) had generated a large estate, but his debt portfolio (Zukra in 6th-from-Chandra) was also significant.

The total largesse was ultimately more moderate once the debt was taken into financial consideration, and his families from both marriages (Rahu-2) had to accept the erosion of the estate via unpaid taxes and previously unrecognized business arrangements (Ketu-Mithunaya-8 undisclosed business arrangements)
