BPL commentary

For Chitra-Tvastri births of a masculine valence, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala may considerably affect the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica. Their purpose is architectural engineering and crafting of beautiful, functional, and artistic alliances, arrangements, and designs.

Architectural Mechanical Designs * Arrangements

Kuja-ruled Chaitra fellows have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft. Tvastri-born have a natural affinity for tools, engines, driving, building.

Kanya pada 1-2 express Kuja's rulership of 3-writing + 8-mystical transformations, while also displaying the frustrating tension of chatty Budha versus active Kuja. Literary Budha plays a stronger role for pada 1-2, producing scholars and writers who argue about architectonics, engineering design, color values, and mechanics. Pada 1-2 = also skilled in handcraft and may be professors-cum-tradesmen, fine-arts painters, model-builders, or practicing musicians.

Thula-Vanika pada 3-4 express Kuja's rulership of 2-collections, assets + 7-contractual equity. Zukra's bargaining behavior and financial skills play a stronger role for pada 3-4, who enjoy the mutual attractions of Zukra-Mangala. In music, arts, and engineering, they pursue harmonious arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. They are often found in the design world, in financial negotiations, and in dynamic meditator roles.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Chitra.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84

"Chitra natives are quiet, thoughtful, and profound.

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • they like to read books on serious and philosophical subjects.

they make good students in their youth.

they are also extremely clever with their hands,

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."

26. Pushkala Yoga * QUOTATION from BV Raman 300 Combinations

[begin quote] Definition.

The lord of the sign occupied by the Moon (who should be associated with Lord of Lagna )

  • should be in a Kendra or in the house of an intimate friend aspecting Lagna

And at the same time,

  • Lagna should be occupied by a powerful planet.


  • Wealthy, sweet speech, famous,

  • honoured by the King and a lord.


The Yoga is somewhat complicated. First of all, the Lord of Lagna should be with the Moon. Lord of the sign occupied by the Moon should be in a very friendly sign or in Kendra aspecting the Lagna and the Lagna should have a strongly disposed planet.

Pushkala Yoga in actual practice is full of significance inasmuch as it comprehends that Lagna, the Lord of Lagna, the Moon and lord of Chandra Lagna should all be powerful." [end quote]
