BPL commentary:

For Chitra-Tvastri natives, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, competitions and battles may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from civilizations of Spica.

Kuja-ruled Chaitra gentlemen have a knack for competition. Goal-oriented and kinetic in building, patterning Tvastri, they strive for dominant power in engineering, artisan mechanics, architecture, and applied design arts such as skilled handcraft.

In music, they excel in arrangements. They often play stringed instruments, and write beautiful songs. In writing and painting, they produce empowered forms using color and sound. Affinity for tools, engines, driving, building. The Kanya pada are mystics while the Thula pada are negotiators.

Themes of productive touch including artistic design, mechanical engineering, and crafting of dynamic arrangements may contextualize Vismakarma's terrestrial experience.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939).Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 84

Very slow in movement and of great dignity in bearing and manner.

  • which are strong, supple, and dexterous.

they like to do things or fashion things with their hands

  • and could be sculptors or artists or surgeons."
