Male Natives born under Visakha Nakshatra
Physical Features: His face will be round, bright and physical appearance extremely attractive. We have noticed two types of physical appearance i.e. one with fatty and long structure and the other with very lean and short structure.
Character and general events: He will have full of vigor and vitality as also intelligence of the highest order. He is firm believer of god and leads a life of truthful existence. He does not believe in the orthodox principles not the age old tradition. He is fond of adopting modern ideas.
Mostly he lives away from his family. He is ready to give weight to others in excess of what is actually required depending on the weight of the persons to whom he is dealing in. Slavery is suicidal for him. While he is very much religiously active, he does not follow any superstitious religious fanaticism. He treats all religions, castes and creed as one. He is a follower of Gandhian philosophy of ‘Ahimsa Paramodharma‘ (Religion is Non-violence) and ‘Truth is God‘. In certain cases I have seen that such type of persons accept Sanyasa (saintism) when they touch 35 years of age. When we sanyasa it does not mean that complete detraction from the ‘Grihastashram‘ (duty towards the family). He will simultaneously look after the family and follow sanyasa.

Hence he is the fittest person to be in the political circle. There is a peculiar spending tendency in him.

He is fit for doing an independent business, job involving high responsibility, banking and religious professions, mathematician or a teacher or a printer.
Family life: He cannot enjoy love and affection of mother. One of the primary reasons for such lack of care may either due to mother’s death or unavoidable circumstances and atmosphere which warrant his mother to be away from the native. There may be several beneficial points of his father with which he can always be proud of. Even then, not much help will be derived from his father also. In other words, we have to come to a conclusion that the native leads more or less a life of an orphan. There may be a lot of difference of opinion between his father and him on several points where an amicable settlement on any matter may not be possible. It is due to these reasons he is right from the childhood a hardworking and self made person.
He loves his wife and children very much. Even so, he has two bad qualities. One is that he is addicted to alcohol and another is that he indulges in too much sex with other ladies. In spite of these weaknesses he will not make this weaknesses as hindrance either in the family or social life.
Health: Since has has inherent vigor and vitality given by the god, his health will normally be very good. However, he is prone to paralytic attack. More than 70 percent of Visakha born people were noticed of this paralytic attack after the age of 55 years. It is also seen that they are prone to asthmatic attack.
