BPL commentary

For Purvaphalguni * Yoni * births of a masculine valence, the condition of sweetly musical, artistic, harmony-seeking, negotiating, balancing, arranging, designing, matching, pairing, sensually pleasuring akarshana-karaka Bright Beautiful Bhrigu may considerably affect the outcome.

Due to the definitive influence of kalatra-karaka Shukra, gentlemen born into the realms of Bharani - Yamya, Pūrvaphalgunī - Yonī , or Pūrvāṣāḍhā may find that their worldview is greatly shaped by the character of the feminine companion.

For those born into the Shukra-ruled paradigm of Vutavabana, feminine figures such as sisters, aunts, and wives, along with partnerships, contracts, bargains, sensual pleasures, lovers, artistic beauty, luxurious scents, treasuries, financial arrangements, and music, may be especially influential.

Diplomatic charm

[Shukra] -ruled Purvaphalguni gentlemen are often found in the sparkling bright worlds of politics , romantic idealism, entertainment, speculative finance, and spectator sports. Yoni-born chaps often display a thick mane of leonine hair and a charming sense of humor.

They are happiest when enjoying a choreographed sport, playing music, dancing with agility and grace, or performing a richly costumed dramatic role for an appreciative audience, Delighted by spectacle and applause, they glitter and smile at parties, political campaigns, gambling and games..

Depending upon the placements of dhanakaraka Shukra and dhana=pati Budha, the Purvarjuni-born may also excel in financial showmanship, bargaining toward a political or commercial agreement, and the high drama of romantic relationships.

Like all Shukra-governed births, Bhagadaivata-born must take care to avoid the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Political success depends upon the charisma of lagnesha Surya. Financial success depends upon the dual-dhanakaraka Shukra and Budha.

Themes of political celebrity, lavish musical entertainments, arts and fashion, and financial agreements may contextualize Pubba's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra-Purvaphalguni.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. [1939] . Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 83

"a physical rather than a mental type.

  • A healthy constitution

  • not given to worry or anxiety regarding the problems of living.

He must guard against impulsiveness

since he is apt to act without sufficient thought

  • and as a result he makes many mistakes

  • which are difficult to rectify

  • and which may be disastrous.

He is very active physically and will be proficient at various sports,

  • reveling in the joy of mere action ,

  • even purposeless action.

These people seem never to rest and are constantly in motion.

  • As soon as they have finished one thing they start on another,

  • frequently doing several things at a time."

QUOTATION from Wikipedia:

" The king and most of his family [including Queen Aiswarya] were massacred at a royal dinner on 1 June 2001.

It is still unclear that who is behind the royal killings... Nepalese people believe that Gyanendra is the main suspected mastermind behind the royal palace massacre...However, according to published reports, his eldest son and heir, Dipendra [photo] , was apparently the gunman, but he himself died a few days later of gunshot wounds suffered during the massacre." Birendra's younger brother, Gyanendra, [photo] became king after the murders, totaling 12 deaths. Unlike the gracious, cosmopolitan Birendra, the younger Gyanendra has an aggressive, militaristic style, and is intensely disliked. [Gyanendra was later deposed.] "
