Underlined sentence above is the case.
Pushkar means nourish. One interesting point of Pushkar Navamsa is that it doesn't falls in Navamsa ruled by natural malefics ie Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius. Pushkar Navamsa falls in only Tauras, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Saggitarius and Pisces, all ruled by Benefics. Jupiter and Venus are called great gurus and both these planets guide the native to make right choices even if planet is debilitated.
In short, it purifies the choices and give auspicious result.
