[INDOLOGY] Kept women?

In an astrological text I have come across several instances of the
compounds /dhṛtastrī/ and /dhṛtabhāryā/, which are new to me and which I
have been unable to find in dictionaries. From the context it seems
possible that the phrases could refer to a mistress, quite literally a
'kept woman'. Can anyone confirm or correct this suspicion?
Thanks in advance,
