Meanings of Hastam
Symbol: "The Hand"
Chandra's "sensitive to others' opinions" nakshatra trine =
The Hasta native, whether male or female, is a profoundly
Homebodies. Home-craft and hand-craft. Skilled handiwork.
Strong influence of soothing, rhythmic, parental Chandra. The uber-parent. Budha involves Hasta folk in school-teaching for the youngest students: promotes and supports the process of learning the basics of the cultural practice; but not much interested in the higher levels of thought, Indeed they are typically quite orthodox in belief and favor a culturally conventional style of worship. , nor advanced skills, nor social policies, nor things outside of the core rhythms of the ethnic people.
Transmits the habits of a settled people from one generation to the next.
Articulates (Budha) rhythms (Chandra). May be a wonderful music teacher for beginners, providing sheltered practice for foundational manual music-making skills. Often prefers folk-music, the ancient melodies, the old songs.
Dislikes innovation in most areas. Affinity for the old ways (Chandra) and takes comfort in rehearsing the ancestral routines. Likes to explain and instruct in the patterns of one's people and transmit these familiar (Chandra) skills (Budha) to the youth (Kumara). Often will accept apprentices in traditional crafts.
Farming, cultivation of the land, local movements and vehicles but only within the pattern of settlement. Sea-faring, but not long voyages. Likes the ocean coastal, the tidal estuaries, fishing along the settled coastline, skills of water-craft. Does not generally like oceanic adventure or wild stormy wind-and-water, unless Rahu is involved. Rather, tries via skills of home-craft to protect one's shelter from unpredictable change, from storms, from intruders.
Intuitive behaviors of protection, sheltering, nourishing, housing. Security, stability, routine, rhythms, defense of the customs, defense of the settlement, protection of the land. Fences. Border and boundaries. Property ownership.
Care of the fragile, the weak, the very young and the very elderly. Interest is often limited to the kith-and-kin of the core family. Likes children, but generally not much engaged in the broader activities of charitable service to the needy. Home and family oriented.
The second pada only (Rishabha navamsha) may self-medicate with some variety of pleasure-drug when their need for a deeply rooted, safe, protected, nourishing, skill-transmitting home life is not being met due to the arrhythmic behaviors of the mother or the mate.
marriage habits promote security,
stability, shelter, daily routines
Tendency to parent the mate.
May not have any alternative relationship skills, e.g. may lack capacity to function as an equal partner; always asserting their parental soothing; but not willing to bargain, adjust, negotiate or try new things in marriage.
Nevertheless a jolly type and inherently friendly so long as the security of the marriage is not threatened by the mate.
Must have a faithful mate but will turn a blind eye toward minor infidelities in order to preserve the comfort of kinship, home, and hearth. Makes a concerted effort to preserve the marital estate and will argue for staying married even under the most challenging situations of incompatibility or extreme distance. Once committed to a trust, does not like change and does not easily embrace new arrangements. Suffers greatly if the stability of the marriage-and-family pattern is broken by a thoughtless partner.
Yuvati-karaka Shukra is not friendly toward Chandra. From Shukra's equal, ever-balancing, ever-negotiating perspective, true harmony in marriage is damaged by 'too much Chandra'.
Over-parenting erodes equity in the partnership due to the intensely emotional need to comfort, transmit life-skills, raise apprentices, deeply nourish at the roots, care-take all factors in their environment -- including their supposedly equal partner (Shukra).
May appear to be older than the mate due to this energy although chronologically the Hasta native is not always elder in calendar time. Exception: if mate has Karkata or Simha lagna, those two lagna do tend to attract senior spouses.
Marriage to the Hasta native may be most satisfying in the elder years, when the greatest value of partnership becomes the ability of the two mates to comfort, protect, and care for each other in the fragility of old age.
