BPL commentary:

For Uttara-azadha natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, speculators, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.
