BPL commentary

For Jyeztha 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, siblings, 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 Jyeztha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and authoritative 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 nakshatrapathi Budha, often Jyeztha-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., and they can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

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

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."

Kanya cluster in bhava-9 patriarchal figures: Victim narrative and popular appeal

Many of AB's most celebrated dramatic roles have prominently featured the victim narrative (Kanya). In youthful portrayals, he specialized in the character of the Angry Young Man. Surya-9 grants Credibility; his representation of the unfairly treated man are supremely believable.

More mature roles tended to dramatize betrayal, false accusation, humiliation, and unmet expectations. Kanya represents "soap opera" narrative of injustice, that is continuously popular among the service classes Kanya.

According to the eminent Jyotisha Shri B.V. Raman, every land and people is governed by a particular rashi, and Raman asserts that the rashi of Mother India is Kanya. When Mr. Bachchan's finances failed or he experienced injuries or disgrace, his popular appeal in Kanya-land has steadily increased.

Shani * duro-karaka * jara-karaka

Shani rules Arudha lagna bhava-3 cinema, commercial production, scripts

  • Shani-Vrizabha * heavy old valuables * must endure the sounds of proletarian speech-and-song * obliged to conform to the official bankers * dry, antique genetic stock * required preservation of aging assets * must materialize orderly values conservation * slow elderly evaluators judge the worth of hoards * must endure pressure to store the precious inventories * must bear the weight of historic treasuries * vital energy compression stress zone = neck-jaw * strictly imposed rules governing warehoused collections * lack of necessary seeds and foodstuffs * must preserve lineage knowledge despite scarce available resources
  • Shani in Bhava-6 (beneficial placement) * Structured, orderly, time-conscious enemies. One must serve the problematic. One must outlast the adversaries. Endurance in military siege. Tense digestion, Cautious, conventional crimes; chronic conditions of criticism and guilt; constitutional illness-injury syndromes; Physicians resist innovation. Heavy legacy pressure against change in disease condition. Service fatigue; burnout. Resentment toward new treatments or medications. Support for socially-approved dutiful roles as social worker or disadvantaged, healthworker or sick, pharmacist or drug addict, criminal or cop, debtor or loanmaker, underpaid or underpayer, victim or victimizer, slaver or slave.

Shani-Vrizabha-6= yogakaraka from Chandra-Thula . Oddly, this angle causes beneficial improvements following injury, indebtedness, false accusation, disease, or disagreement. The benefits come slowly but assuredly.

Shani in Bhava-6 located in the emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra

= permanent Shani-ashtamsha ++ both Shani and Chandra are ruled by nichha-Zukra-10

  • Rahu in bhava-9 * passion for philosophy, preaching * in swabhava of Saptarishi Guru, the Shadowy Specter seeks privilege via glamorous or unusual doctrine, theory, dharma, worldview. Rahu-9 desires a thrilling, important guidance role in catechesis, principled discourses of abstract ideas, ideology, philosophy, indoctrination. Extraordinary father-figure, ambitious professors and holy teachers. Thrives in culturally-mixed preaching environments, university, temple, sangha, congregation. Surreptitious attempt to appear as a global, humanistic, ideologically-framed agent of understanding. Rahu the Poseur may pose as a charitable philanthropist, a wisdom-purveyor, a proselyte of principled understanding, a guru-figure, a philosopher, or a globalist humanitarian. Rahu-9 trespasses the cultural boundaries of patronage, fatherhood, paradigm of belief. Exciting, opportunistic third marriage (if any). .

Rahu in bhava-9 -Simha: in politics and entertainment for a lifetime

  • Ketu in classroom-3 * absentee sibling, off-topic communications, disinterested in daily discourse, dissolved messaging boundaries, disregards conventional discussions, eccentric or esoteric modes of writing, irrelevance of the mental narrative. One abandons the management tasks, dismisses the standard explanations, walks away from the usual descriptions.
