Hasta-Savitri * Athram

BPL commentary

For Hasta gentlemen, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, routinized, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

Mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, natural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Corvus. Their purpose ismaking secure nests to soothe, protect, and nourish the workers.

Careful handling

Savitra-born fellows are often found in handcraft trades, home-building and real-estate, in caretaking and protective roles, or in specialties of nourishment, sheltering, schoolteaching, policing, or local safety. Their purpose is supporting the local welfare. Typically masculine births in Hasta indicate a comfortable, grounded focus into the home realms including parenting, gardening, and environmental care.

All four pada occur within Kanya rashi. Athram-born express the tension between the handy busy-ness of mental, commercial Budha versus the emotionally based, calming routines of non-verbal Chandra.

Known for their skillful handwork, Hasta are found in service professions where daily communications and family-style conversations are engaged in a routine of protective, sustaining care.

Hasta chaps are socially reliable and available emotionally due to Chandra influence. This nice combination wins them many friends and long-term business customers. Hasta are specialists in customer care. Once they have established a relationship whether personal or professional, the Athram-born values consistency and loyalty.

Generally not risk-takers unless Rahu is prominent in the nativity. Hasta fellows tend to be engaged parents, restaurateurs, home builders, social workers, home health nurses, protection officers, schoolteachers, and supervisors of caretaking operations. Although their own family usually comes first, Hasta are concerned with the well-being of their complete natural and social environment.

Themes of manufacturing and handcraft, local business, housing and shelter, nourishment, and protective service may contextualize Hasta's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Hasta-Savitra

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 83

"...clever, witty, and entertaining.

They like social contacts

  • and are particularly fond of the company of the opposite sex.

When in trouble, go to a Hasta person;

but do not try to pull the wool over their eyes,

  • as they are extremely clever

  • and will see through any deceit

they are very likable and are good company,

  • but never very attractive physically ."
