potential to be manipulated by operatives and "handlers ".

There can be too shrewd too clever people in one's day-to-day environment, leading to deceptive talk for the sake of talk.

The daily schedule may be full of events requiring delivery of crafty mistruths. A sibling or co-worker is self-serving through their own cleverness.

As Das Goravani comments, "You are sometimes controlled by others with whom you have money related dealings or entanglements."

If Budha is dignified, an excellent memory and good earning capacity. Somewhat immature thought process; remains an adolescent in one's own mind.

Matches their immediate environment like a chameleon. Keeps up with trends and fashions. Knows what's currently being used and discussed.

Rashi will show the subject areas they most commonly discuss, but one can produce abundant superficial conversation on virtually any topic, from the brilliant to the mundane.

Repetitive thought patterns center on mental matters: words and gestures; communications activities and policies, information proliferation, media outreach to young people.

Comfortably placed Budha in bhava-3 [svabhava] = manu-facture of objects of detailed communication through the craft of the hands
