Kita * Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeṣtha 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, s iblings, 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 Jyeṣtha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and energetic 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 nakshatra-pati Budha, often Jyeṣtha-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. Jyestha can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

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

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."

Pedda Venkama Raju Ratnakaram = petty landowner [Surya in bhava-4]



During his lifetime, SSB demonstrated an extraordinary ability to direct his intelligence toward the rearrangement of particles, causing small forms to dissolve and reoccur in a different form.

Surya-Vṛścika change of exterior form.

[Surya-yuti-Budha] [Surya-yuti-Shukra] [Surya-yuti-Shani]contributed a wide toolkit of mystical-magical showmanship oriented to the local ethnic culture and its mystery customs.


matrikaraka [mother] * garha-karaka [village]

Mom = Namagiriamma, later known as Eashwaramma.

Mom was a passionately ambitious force in SSB's life. The mark of the mother is found in nearly every aspect of life.

Mom would have been passionately goal-oriented and economically minded. Somana-yuti-Rahu = opportunistically concerned with social networking and marketplace revenues, and inclined toward instrumental announcements.

In addition, the ponderous cluster in bhava-4 = Shani + Shukra + Budha + Surya == the overwhelming impact of both parents upon one's development.

Bandesha Kuja occupies 6th-from-4th while Chandra matrikaraka occupies 8th-from-4th, suggesting that significant occult influences are not easily aligned with the local culture [4] nor with the security of home and hearth.

Budha = the moneymaker for Simha indriya-lagna nativity.

[Budha in bhava-4] real-estate construction, schools, homes, temples, ashrama, local infrastructure = associated with Shani + Shukra + Surya. Exceptional profitability of building schemes, via complex funding structures producing enrichment [2] within a gridwork of association [11] . Add the fascinating camouflage of Arudra-Somana-yuti-Rahu-11 = ambition for revenues.

Following the saint's decease, the total convertible assets stored in the organization's various holy precincts were valued by the examining accountants in the double-digit millions $.

rajyalobha-karaka [ambition] picchala-karaka [slippery]

[ambitious instructions for revolutionary change]

[seeks prestige secret information]

[desire to transform the scripted process]

[passion for detailed disguise]


[Arudra-3] [navamsha Rahu-Kumbha] boundary-breaching economic networks


  • [Rahu-Mithunaya] craving for conversation * mask of  messaging * extraordinary explanations * ambitious administration * preposterous propaganda * fascinating  evangelism * marvelous advertising and photographs * unusual ensembles * exciting cohort * mesmerizing  instructions * over-reaching management * seeks special importance via apparent [but perhaps not authentic] attributes of information delivery, scripts, documentation, business planning, commercial transactions, communicator-roles

Shani-Rahu occupy the growth-challenging mutual 6/8 shad-ashtaka angle

SSB displayed during his lifetime an extraordinary [Rahu-Ketu] ability to direct his intelligence toward the rearrangement of particles, causing forms to dissolve [Ketu] and reoccur in a different form. These entertainments [5] brought him fame [5] which allowed him to collect earnings [Rahu-5] which were then partially [Ketu] distributed in charitable undertakings.


kavandha-karaka [headless] chidra-karaka [gaping] vasana-karaka [vacuum]

[scattered inspirational intelligence]

[disengaged witness to politics of catechism]

[liberated from displays of wisdom]

[disregard for the drama of empty beliefs]


[dramatic-creative Pūrvāṣāḍhā-1] [navamsha Ketu-Simha] witness-observer dramatizing

  • [Ketu-Dhanus] philosophically dissociates from sacred convictions * odd professors * dissolves indoctrination * empty paradigm of belief *  dispersed worldview * not limited by conventional beliefs * eccentric teachings * peculiar convictions * ignores restricted catechesis * releases a warm golden  cloud of broad inclusivity into the misty abyss

[Ketu in classroom-2]

indicates a general disinterest in children or disregard for their integrity.

Guru-6 [nīcha] = putrakaraka + putra-pati = much lower likelihood of socially recognized offspring.

Guru-6 [nīcha] putra-pati located in the shad-ashtakya 6/8 angle from Chandra offers a third proof of disinclination toward children.

Those interactions which do occur with students, adolescents, and young-people would tend to have weak boundaries.

"and now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."
