Mesmerizing dancers, they use the communicative signaling of hands, shoulders, legs, hips, and pelvic thrust to great advantage. Stage performers of high excellence, Arudra - Betelgeuze gentlemen are often admired for their pulsing sensuality and animal magnetism.

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra, p 81r.

" Corresponds with a healthy, robust body and nature.

  • the attitude and outlook of this individual is entirely physical.

  • Mental effort is foreign to him.

He depends entirely on his muscles and his body to meet the demands of existence.

Such being the case, laborers, professional athletes

  • and other persons whose occupations are wholly physical

  • may be found to have Arudra rising.

Since such people are invariably exploited

  • by those whose mental abilities are greater than theirs,

  • it is extremely unlikely that they will be wealthy or even well-to-do.

In fact, poverty is predominant among them."
