    from BPHS, Ch. 94 -"Remedies from the Effects of Birth in Jyestha Gandanta"

    (Ranjan edition, 1995, p. 1035 Vol 2.)

    "A girl born in Jyestha Nakshatra

    • destroys (is the cause of death of) the elder brother of her husband

    And a girl born in Vishaka Nakshatra

    • destroys (is the cause of death of) the younger brother of her husband.

    Therefore a cow should be given in charity

    • at the time of the marriage of such girls to wipe out the aforesaid evil effects."

    Jyestha = "I know better than you":

    Mangala lord of Vrischika + Budha lord of Jyestha = highly adversarial, incompatible companions; Budha sees Chandra as a mortal enemy.

    • Jyestha is mentally conquering when engaged in a war of words. Jyestha and must establish dominance using the weapons of privileged access to information and aggressively asserted statements.

    Rhythmic, emotionally forceful, sloganizing speech = often a superb songwriter or sermon writer because of this energy

    • Over-rides most types of advice and counsel.

    • Jyestha must be consciously vigilant to avoid emotional entrapment in "know-it-all" mentality.

    Jyestha = the single most difficult location for Chandra.

    Jyestha in lagna is associated with very pro-active even aggressive verbal assertions, potentially including fraudulent statements intended to establish the native 's dominance in business groups and family discussions.

    Jyestha's verbally competitive and dominantly controlling verbal behavior helps develop their leadership credibility, and Jyestha is therefore a mark of cult leadership. When the accuracy or viability of their assertions are challenges, the charismatic Jyestha leader does not back down, compromise or adjust.

    Forward-moving Jyestha cannot retract a statement (Budha) or permit reformulation of the agenda. One may get carried away with the logical forward-power of the argument and fail to scientifically verify the actual truth of the claims. Thus Jyestha is associated with cult leadership and self-appointed authority to declare an action agenda based on false claims.

    Jyestha's mental-domination style does not block inquiry into the factual accuracy of their assertions, but rather Jyestha more and more vigorously (Mangala) asserts the need to move forward with the agenda.

    these seniority-asserting leaders often attract weaker followers, sycophants, and hangers-on.

    Jyestha's charisma is powerful but the organizations which sometimes organically grow around these sparkling personalities (esp the females) must beware of the "manager" types who can attempt to "package" the Jyestha personality. A Jyestha woman in particular benefits from direct hands-on (Budha) control of her own business affairs, leaving very little to the control of middlemen and managers.

    In particular the Jyestha must take charge of media publicity = what is being said "about" one, and maintain honest truth about oneself, to prevent spinning of tales.

    • "O" multimedia magnate Oprah Winfrey = blessed by a strong constellation of graha in bhava-3-business management including an uttama-Mangala-Chandra yoga, which allowed her to mentally understand and keep direct control over her 'public relations' image as well as hands-on manage her own staff. If bhava-3 is weak for the Jyestha woman she can be led astray by promoters, packagers, and those trying to manipulate her image.

    Jyestha may meet challenges to its mental behavior with aggressive self-assertion.

    It is hard to say No to a forcefully charismatic Jyestha!

    • once they have begun an evangelistic or political-slogan campaign., it is nearly impossible to convince them to double-check their logic or revise their claims.

    Jyestha one-way communication style:

    • does not accept advice from humans.

    • Gives sermons, delivers advice, repeats slogans, makes pronouncements

    In any war of words or battle of the minds (Mangala-Budha), Jyestha must win.

    Jyestha the Messenger delivers instructions but does not accept advice.

    • Jyestha tends to dominate the discussion

    the native often delivers Transformative instructions (Budha) styled with authoritative, emotionally healing energy

    However similar to Budha-ruled Azlesa and Revati, as a result of Budha's "dual-channel" capability, the life Jyestha is living may be significantly at variance with the message they are delivering.

    • While the person lifestyle and behavior of the messenger does not necessarily invalidate the transformative power of the message (and Jyestha's message is often profoundly transformative) the usual Jyestha lifestyle specifically does not 'walk the talk'. Severe inconsistencies can even lead to the possibility of outright fraud.

    • Jyestha are charismatically sexual creatures who typically control their liaisons quite effectively, through a combination of authoritative argument and intentional touch

    seniority, prophecy, authoritativeness

    Anuradha's alliance-building negotiations have become prolonged. In the chaotic aftermath of Vishaja followed by still-incomplete negotiations for order within Anuradha, the people need a senior leader to bring the conflicted factions together.

    One individual with a strong vision will arise in the disorder following the shock caused by a great storm (Vishaja). Jyestha knows, or believes that one knows, the true path toward greater world order a lasting peace.

    This one speaks with articulate (Budha) seniority, with calm certainty in the rightness of one's own view. This one is the self-appointed authority. This one claims to receive direction from the Divine. This is Jyestha, the respected Elder.

    Arriving in times that hunger for a transformative message, authoritative Jyestha may find social destiny as a charismatic politician

    or an influential religious leader

    • "weeping evangelist" Tammy Faye Bakker

    Chandra-Jyestha

    Jyestha may be associated with cult leadership . The method of dealing with criticism is to deny it and repeat the 'revealed' claims.

    • Noam Chomsky (an intellectual cult in linguistics, based on a disproven theory)

    However, Jyestha's proclaimed certainty may be deceptive to less discriminating minds. Jyestha must maintain the highest standards of personal integrity in order to withstand the temptation to misuse one's inherent seductive charisma.

    • Jyestha native enjoys certain darkly charismatic mentally manipulative powers, similar to Azlesa.

    • One may make a show of consulting authorities but indeed the Jyestha native is convinced in advance of one's own righteousness.

    The status of Budha-Kuja within the Jyotisha nativity will determine the course of one's true righteousness in the dharmic context. Jyestha can produce both a great saint and a manipulative fraud.

    Of all 27 Nakshatra, Jyestha is the most likely or the most tempted to misuse one's power to control others.

    However with adequate self-knowledge and spiritual grounding, Jyestha (especially for females, or for males with good wives) can become a greatly respected force for good.

    Best results occur for the Jyestha nativity when Budha is strong.

    For Jyestha females, expect some difficulty in the early years typically, with poor family support until Budha matures after age 32.

    The Jyestha native faces lifelong potential for self-deception. Jyestha may fall prey to the belief that, in a time of desperate tribal need for leadership, one has been "Chosen". As the people beg for leadership, Jyestha may slip into delusion, believing that all of one's thoughts actions respond only to the highest powers. A "reality check" on one's own humble humanity is permanently in order for the Jyestha native!

    Jyestha can be a " control freak". If Chandra- Jyestha, obsessive emotional control.

    If there is a Jyestha person in your life, things will be easier in the relationship when the Jyestha person is allowed to have firm control over his or her physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual destiny.

    • Competitive outsider authority or advice will be disregarded. Truly persistent competing outside opinion or authority will be destroyed.

    • One may however extend positive influence to the Jyestha native through subtle psychic suggestion (in case the Jyestha is still a child) through parental role-modeling. Jyestha has a fixed-direction mentality physical habit, but also a very fluid psychic aura.

    Jyestha must rigorously discipline a tendency to appropriate power through psycho-mental manipulation. Jyestha should avoid the temptation to believe that one "knows better" what is good for the partner or the people.

    Jyestha = advised to wait to assume leadership until public trust is fully earned through a track record of transparent moral action.

    If self-discipline, including even the mortification of the flesh, is in place, then Jyestha may indeed act as a great transformative channel for the progress of human civilization
