These people have
a calm and composed appearance, and will not show the slightest indication of
worry even when they are under extreme tensions. But if the natal Buddha (Mercury) is in
a dual sign, these people find it difficult to make some important decision and
hence, start hesitating. They know how to win over the other party, hence these
people can be good diplomats or are suitable for any profession that requires
maintaining a liaison with various agencies/parties.
these people, good times quickly give way to difficult situations. Though they
are hard working and sincere in their efforts, they do not get rewarded for
their efforts every time. This generates a lot of heartburn. Working
permanently in a subordinate position is not in their blood. Even when they

Nakshatra born persons, the life of Hasta native is full of frequent ups and

bottom whether in profession al field or in the mental world. In other words,
luck and unluck comes to them without intimation. Hence we cannot categorize him as a permanent poor or wealthy. When he enters in a particular field and
starts gaining the object, reversal is already in store for him. While he tries
to get out of such reversal with his own effort, helps comes to him from the
unexpected quarters and he achieves medium success in the undertaking. It may
