I was watching a YouTube video recently where the speaker said that one astrologer in his pañcāṅga (almanac) claimed that a woman's character and what the woman goes on to become in her later life depends on the time of the day she menstruates for the first time. I didn't believe him first but after a bit of googling I did find a couple of references. Here's one (The Hindu). And this is the other from which I quote below.
Gargeya's almanac (panchangam in Telugu) called 'Graha Bhoomi Panchangam' for the Telugu New Year 2012-13 (it begins on March 23) has some strange observations about the menstruation period of girls.
The almanac predicts that if a girl gets her first menstruation after sunset, she will become a prostitute.
And that's not all. 'If the menstrual cycle starts in the evening, the girl will turn into a thief and if she attains puberty at around midnight, she will become a widow at an early age and will have sagging breasts.
'And if it happens after midnight, she will become a destitute,' Gargeya's almanac claims.
. . .
Gargeya, though, defended his almanac. 'The observations had been there in the almanac for years and there is nothing offensive about them,' he said.
Since the astrologer is defending his claims, I thought there must be a precedent for this. So do any jyotiṣa śāstras discuss this matter?
