Moon in Jyestha Nakshatram, (Constellation) gives the basic mentality of the person, the first reaction to any situation, it might not translate into action and it might subside with experience and age but this is your first reaction to any situation you are in, :-) and it becomes more prominent If Moon is in Lagna (Ascendant), or Cancer Ascendant (Lagna), because Moon is the lord of this house, and Taurus Ascendant (Lagna) where Moon gets its exaltation, or If Moon is Atmakaraka, otherwise for all other houses this mentality becomes equal or secondary to the mentality emanating from the Lagna and the Nakshatram rising.
And Jyestha males and females are automatically attracted to each other, some times your hear someone sing and If that singer happens to be your Nakshtram the liking is natural and automatic, same thing for looks, voice, walking style, expressions etc. and the same pattern applies to the matching Nakshatra, like Anuradha is matching Nakshatra for Jyestha and vice versa and other Nakshatra with same Mercury lordship like Revati and Alesha.
For Jyestha natives:
People with Ashwini, Magha and Mula (Ketu Lordship) might bring wealth.
People with Krittika, Uttara Phalguni and Uttara Ashadha (Surya Lordship) might bring blessings of well being,
People with Mrigasira, Chitra and Dhanista (Mars Lordship) might help them to achieve their goals.
People with Punarvasu, Vishaka, and Poorva Bhadrapada (Jupiter Lordship) might be friendly.
People with Pushyami, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadrapada (Shani Lordship) might become fast friends.
People with Bharani, Purva Phalguni and Purva Ashadha (Venus Lordship) might be dangerous.
People with Rohini, Hasta and Shravana(Moon Lordship) might create obstacles.
People with Arudra, Swati and Satabisha (Rahu Lordship) might cause death.
The reason why I took Shil Ponde is because his Jyotish Shastra was written way back in 1939 when the world was in turmoil, and Intelligence agencies were not digital savvy to manipulate the write ups, this is the reason why I keep checking my write ups for manipulations and I always find lot of changes, so I correct them back.

Note: Please note that you might come across lots of celebrities and popular people placed all over the constellations, some put them with constellation where Sun is present, some with constellation where Lagna is, and some with Mars also, but the correct one is Moon in its constellation because Moon controls mind and it is considered the birth star, so the Nakshatra with Moon is what I am following, and please don't just read view of one Astrologer and feel very bad, :-) Nakshatra is one level of your character, there is lot more I would say 90% more to your character then just Nakshatra, but Nakshatra and Moon are very important as far as your relations are concerned, hence I have mentioned number of Marriages and number of children.
And as all Astrologers pre modern and modern were/are men, so it is also obvious that they would be little to some extent biased towards women, :-) If women feel they are not getting proper presentation of their character, then write your own Astrology and see that women gets proper representation. :-) and I am also a Man, though I try to be with out bias but you know. :-))
