Moon in Cancer: Bepin Behari say that when the Moon is in Cancer “the psychic bridge of the individual is orientated towards the impulses coming from the higher sources. Many a time the individual may not understand what messages are flowing through his mind but he will be receptive to those messages and will like to express them at physical levels of existence.”
Pierre Paul Broca: The Broca’s Area of the brain is the centre of speech articulation; responsible for controlling the movement of the muscles of the speaking apparatus: the movements of lips, tongue, larynx, and pharynx. It plays the primary role in the creation of programs of spoken production as well as phonetic-phonological, syntactic and semantic aspects of language. It enables us to use and understand grammatical rules. Broca’s zone or area is involved in the process of understanding the language, as well as in the exercise of other language functions. Broca’s aphasia is characterised by non-fluent speech, rare literary paraphrases, poor repetition, good understanding, and poor naming ability. There seems to be two parts to this region of the brain. One that controls the motor reflexes of our speaking apparatus which relates to Pushya. And another part of Broca’s area that relates with learning ability, grammar and language that has some relation with Punarvasu (taking note that Broca has Jupiter in Punarvasu).
“Was it an hour, or a week before the light of the moon rose in the interior of my body? A bird with luminous wings flew in front of that full moon, and its head was as radiant as a point of light. That bird must be the Khu–this sweet bird of the night–a creature of divine intelligence loaned to us just so much as the Ren or the Sekhem. Yes, the Khu was a light in your mind while you lived, but in death, it must return to heaven. For the Khu was also eternal.”
— Norman Mailer—

The fortune is generally changing. It makes one an idealist, a great traveller and explorer. If conjunct Saturn, the mind will always be worried. If with Mars, women will suffer mensural disorders. Sociability tends to be a strong feature. He will be successful in professions that bring him in contact with the masses. Conjunct Rahu can give hysterical tendencies. Conjunct Jupiter elevates the mind.”

He will be thoughtful, intelligent, fickle-minded, will have two wives, and will have sexual relations with women other than their own wife.

The exaltation of the 2nd lord of his disposition in lagna, the 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, will fortify him to the extent of making him a yoga karaka. The native will be enabled to make considerable fortune through business of occupation consistent with the nature of the 2nd lord & 2nd house. Malefics aspects can bring loses. Affliction to the 2nd house can also cause the native to not get nutritious & delicious food, his family and children might suffer disease or disfunction, and relations with life-partner may not be cordial.”
