English translation:The seventh of the variable astronomical periods called Karanas.
Explanation:


A Karana is half a Thithi or 6 degrees of arc. In thirty Thithis comprising of the Lunar month, there are sixty half-thithis or Karanas. In other words, each Thithi has two Karanas. The first Karana ends at the middle of the Thithi and the second Karana is upto the end of that Thithi.

There are four Karanas that occur only once in a month. They are fixed Karanas and their effects, according to "Yavana Jathaka".

The person of this Vishti Karana will be heartless, without friends and will be bent on doing bad deeds.

Hope this helps.

agree  Dr. Premjith Nambutiripad: 'Vishti' is a karana which happens on the first half of the full moon day etc., that time is inauspicious for doing or starting good things. It considered to be a dragonfaced beast, and sometimes a bitch.
