upper or lower part of the bow.
The thumb of the person born in this lagna will be pretty and sword-shaped. The person will have constitution susceptible to cold, possesses big teeth and fleshy limbs. They will be charitably disposed; will pursue their profession in a place different from that of birth and relish the company of others.
Mercury will be malefic to persons born in this lagna; Venus will be cruel, while the Sun and Mars will be beneficial.
In Figure 203, we notice broad and long whirls. Viewed from the left wing, they seem like a bent bow.
Figure 205: Here, above the markM, a crowd of lines moves up and in the centre forms into the shape of an end of a bow. Right in the middle there appears a small point. Below it,.there runs a white line. This is a pointer of the presence of two planets in the lagna. From U to M we see a broken line. This means that upto the 30th year there is no permanent settlement for the native anywhere. At M an accessory line has begun. This implies some good results from the 31st year. Income will increase. From years 45,46 we notice a tri-petalled line issuing, indicating the native will acquire much wealth, comfort, peace of mind, house and lands.
Figure 206: Here three-quarters of the whorls are bent. And as white tints abound hostile planets aspect the lagna. The wheat line is thick suggesting a life full of struggles..
207: The streamlines issuing from the earth part have moved as if inclined to the left. They resemble the central part of the bow. The wheat line is dented suggesting very little happiness.
208 R.T.: The tail-enclosure sign points to the earth-sign on the top. In the centre there is a round point. (There is a planet in the lagna). From ? to E the layers are fine. D and E lines unite in the centre. This means that during the first part of the native's life he will be unmarried and will have no mental peace. The lines from ? to A are a little favourable. From the 40th year, the middle part of life suggests good results. As ? and L lines aspect each other from opposite ends, ?the native will have no tranquility of mind. The nuclei contain dot signs; the native will have good
education and possess virtuous traits. In the L.T. figure the H line is dented in the centre. The F.G. line is rough. This foretells hard life for the native.
MAKARA (CAPRICORN) LAGNA
The bow sign described in Dhanus attains the triangular shape in Makara lagna. The angular signs above the earth layers are not fully triangular at the left and right ends. The whirls are horizontally broad. In a few thumbs, the left side is angular at the edge of the early layers. In others it is egg-shaped. But the whirl appears thick in one part and thin in the other.
Venus and Mercury confer benefits on the natives of this lagna. The natives will have a broad mouth, long hands and legs, and not much hair. They will suffer from diseases incidental to rheumatism and bile.
Figure 209 : The foot of the upper part of the earth layer is broad. As it moves up, it becomes small. Its full form is triangular.
210 : Here, the Dhanur lagna ends and the Makara has commenced. We notice the beginning of the angular shape in the centre. The upper part of the triangle is bent like the bow. This suggests the commencement of Makara lagna.
211 : Here, we see a slantingly (obliquely) placed egg form on the earth layers. The egg is big at E and small at F.
212 : On an examination of this figure we find that on the left side of the earth portion, the semicircles of the whorl protrude in the form of a triangle. Both the wheat line and whirl are broken. This indicates that the native suffers from diseases and
earns livelihood by hard labour.
Figures 213 and 214; In both these the left side i s angular. In the nucleus of both the whirls there is white tint. This proclaims the presence of a planet in the lagna.
KUMBHA (AQUARIUS) LAGNA
The triangular egg shape referred to in Makara lagna yields place, here, to an obliquely placed pot on the earth. The perfect triangle is inclined to a side. I"he left or the right side resembles the neck of a pot. The one end of the egg form assumes the shape of a pot's neck (In some places, we notice the form of an onion.)
Persons born in this lagna will have a round face; Indulge in wasteful expenditure. They will suffer much either at the beginning or at the end. They will Wave brothers, and many offspring. They will be a prey to rheumatic and phlegm complaints; will be susceptible to the attraction of the other sex and will, in consequence, suffer.
Figure 215, (the number of lagna): From 210 to 215 we see the bottom of the pot and when we examine the uper part leaving alone the earth layers ibove B, we see the form of the mouth of a pot.
In Figure 216, the top part resembles largely the form of the earth's layers. From the top to B, one side ?.lopes while the other part appears like a semi-pot. I tut, the nucleus of the whirl has stream lines surrounding It. This indicates the closure of Kumbha l .igna. Since the centre has the form of two hooks, it points to the presence of a planet in the lagna.
58 Your Destiny in Thumb
217; Here, on the side of the symbol of planets, we notice the shape of a pot's mouth. The occurrence of a small round circle at the centre suggests the presence of a favourable planet in the lagna. The broken circles below it imply that together with the benefic planet in the lagna, there is also a malefic planet. The native will have education and good character, but will lead an ordinary life.
Figure 218 : Here we notice on the left side the neck part of a pot and on the right the bottom part. In the centre of the whirl there is a small circle. And in the middle of the circle we find a white dot. This means that the lord of this lagna is in his own house (Swakshetra).
Figure 219 : This manifests mostly the form of the tail of a fish (at the point where the arrow mark is shown). If we examine the inner lines of the whirl, they appear like a pot placed upside-down (This is a sign of the ending of the Kumbha lagna).
The figure of the same thumb is again shown at the bottom.
220 :The semi-circles of the whirls move largely towards the earth part. The nucleus appears on the top.
221 : This is pot-shaped. The neck part
