emotional need for helping hands

nurturing, protecting,

tool-using, manufacturing,

acts of ministry

emotional engagement via Hands-Fingers-Gesture


the workshop

Food sensitivities. acute intuitive awareness of the digestive process.

Less concerned with glamour. More concerned with security, protection, conversation, craft.

Hasta-Chandra has a profound and self-defining core need for emotional security, which expresses via technical excellence [Budha] and wanting to appear as a provider of artisanal skill and craft [Budha].

  • Marvelous for any practitioner of hand-craft such as musician, surgeon, architectural drafter, massage therapist or laboratory chemist. The hands are intuitively sensitive and measurements are accurate.

Hasta-Chandra seeks emotional stability and security via drawing, diagramming, instructing, manipulating, pushes buttons and pulls levers on mechanical instruments.

Uses the hands and the emotions in synthesis. Hasta-Chandra needs to express caretaking and protective instincts via handcraft, instrument operation, soothing touch.

Hasta-Chandra exhibits a pronounced emotionally-motivated engagement of the hands nearly all of the time. Rhythmic routine movements such as housekeeping tasks [Chandra] of laundering, floor-washing, carpet-cleaning, dish-washing, all of the manual acts of kitchen management, cooking, sewing, sweeping, ironing nest-building, et-cetera are soothing and natural to Chandra-Hasta.

When Chandra-Hasta is not using the hands for domestic routine, they may paint, write, sculpt, use tools, manually locate things into piles and boxes, and engage in everything sort of household rhythmic activity. They can be fussy when the household service is not to their standards, but are quite willing to serve the servants. Even the wealthy ones may be found cleaning and nourishing, right alongside their domestic staff, who are broadly considered as part of the family in any case.

Cares for elders and infants, attends the vulnerable, sick, weakened, pregnant; protects and shelters the family.

Feels comfortable when gesturing, measuring, compounding and composing, writing, sculpture, painting; in choreography, stenography, documentation, naotation; using the hands in craftwork, touching musical instruments, massage, when engaged in emotionally grounding routines with neighbors, siblings, and work-mates.

Management , manipulation, intuitive skill of hands

Makes an excellent secret-ary (managing secrets, especially in confidential positions)

calm and capable under normal circumstances

If doing a healing massage or crafting a fine musical instrument or repairing a boat engine, this native will hear a soft interior voice delivering a quiet narrative of instruction as to what should be done, in what sequence, for best results.

Affinity for delicate machines (including the human body)

  • specialized instruments, fine tools.

Usually an excellent writer and tool-user

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla * wrote thousands of pages rapidly, by hand

  • cinematic draftsman Walt Disney - hand crafted countless numbers of cartoon animation frames, rapidly, by hand

Smart and clever, with notable intuitive communicatio n capabilities.

Like to talk, gesture, and measure . (Chandra-Budha).

Emotional affinity for crafty work with the hands and a workshop environment:

  • animator Walt Disney founded the Disney Studios workshops that produced his famous children's films

  • slicing-dicing-paring, mixing, tools of cooking, measurement, Chef Julia Child

Even if other factors create risk (military career, extramarital affairs, financial speculation, political resistance) one will stay close to the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people [Chandra] in the behavioral style

Emotionally possessive and dislikes change of the established cyclical calendar. Needs a regular lunar cycle of ritual seasonal returns.

Emotional Grounding through the Hands

Dishonesty, falsification, and pretense


Verbal Facade of Normalcy

Edifice: Everything is Fine

Chandra-ruled lunar Nakshatra

These three nakshatra being ruled by protective, emotional, impressionable, absorptive, oscillating-rhythmic Chandra can display super-sensitive reactivity to imagined slights and threats to the regular cyclical flow of work-home-family.

These three nakshatra = Moon-ruled = deeply needy of constant emotional stability. They enjoy a regular cycle of emotional fluctuation but major upheavals may create a "personal tsunami"and they may react with urgent retreat into self-protection via declamation [Budha] that everything is fine.

Dealing directly with the problem is not instinctive; passive defense against the problem is more natural for these folk and they will summon the verbal-emotional resources for "defense of the homeland" when feels threatened.

They may feel the need of boundary "fencing"around the electro-magnetic emotional core.

Mounting of peripheral defense can involve reinforcement of the "facade" similar to the face of a building.

These natives when under stress may exhibit psychological defensiveness which is out of proportion to the scope factual threat.

as a result of putting up a defensive shield which they try to use as a 'decoy' to deflect predatory interests, these folk who are quite pure of heart can develop Ironically a reputation for falseness and pretense .

The honest truth may seem like an inadequate defense to Hasta, who may erect a protective facade of perfect contentment [Chandra] in order to mask the human weaknesses of one's self or one's job skills.

Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

Trauma pattern

Fear of being marginalized or devalued

Often restrained or abused in childhood, where emotional approval is provided only upon obedient performance of duty .

Throughout life, then, one craves order and routine with regular praise for performance.


Walt Disney was a physically and emotionally abused child. It is said that in times of stress, walt Disney the famous drawer and animator, washed his hands compulsively up to 30 times per hour. ~~,_Walt

Navamsha Chandra in Hasta - Savitra -

psychic mirroring function of intimate relationships

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Hasta behavior.

  • Cogito-Ergo-Sum 1596-1650 logic Rene Descartes attracted a Hasta-style soothing, caretaking, grounded, routine-loving partner. Unlike his rather high-strung mathematical, argumentative and intellectualized self, his partner was an uneducated woman of simple tastes. She was devoted to him, and moved whenever he moved (which was often, sometimes multiple times in a year). She was his housekeeper with whom he fathered a daughter. Descartes never mentioned her in his copious writings but others knew that she was with him for many years. When their daughter died Descartes left their partnership; However, he arranged and paid for her marriage to a local tavern-keeper, and she lived happily thereafter in the Hasta rhythmic, caretaking, serving way.

Under emotional stress within relationships, the native with navamsha Chandra in Hasta can suffer inner reactions of compulsive communications and obsessive measuring .

the native has a deep psychic need to stabilize their own emotional life through a fixed calendar of duties

Hasta likes to draw and practice rhythmic repetitions

Partner of One may be grasping and possessive, tending to repeat crafty, manipulative behaviors either mental or manual or both.

Partner is a handy person with disarmingly : ) steady habits. Budha = very clever; the partner may have figured out how to successfully live a double life . (Two hands, two lives). The trick is in the calendar.
